NATO Frankenstein - When Centralization Scales Beyond Our Control / Politics / New Cold War

By: Raul_I_Meijer

In an article about NATO exercises in Estonia, just 300 yards from the Russian border, Daniel McAdams at the Ron Paul Institute makes a point that I want to use to make a much broader point. Not the provide answers, though, just to provide questions. McAdams quotes the Guardian review of a book by George Sakwa:

10 Reasons Washington Has War Fever / Politics / US Politics

By: Ron_Holland

"War is merely the continuation of policy by other means." – Carl von Clausewitz

The political elites, Federal Reserve and special interests that really run the show hiding behind Congress and the president of either party in America's closed two-party monopoly seem to be running scared in many regards. They rightly have many fears for their political future as well as the profits and survival of the major international corporations and banking interests that support the current political leadership and regime.

Deepak Chopra - New Age Genius or Bullshit Expert? - Video / Politics / Religion

By: Videos

New Age guru Deepak Chopra presents his ideas on 'non local consciousness', 'a super position of possibilities' heavily immersed in the scientific jargon of quantum physics that to a lay person, especially one that really wants to believe seems highly convincing, hence why Deepak Chopra has such a large following.

I’m talking about a history of murder.

Maybe you didn’t know, but there’s a theory that the Fed ordered John F. Kennedy’s assassination.

"Audit the Fed"? We've Already Done That (Well, Kind of) / Politics / US Federal Reserve Bank

By: EWI

Our conclusion: The Fed is not in control of the economy -- here's why

If there's one thing the Federal Reserve Board of the United States is not known for, it's assertive language. After all the obfuscation and verbal sidestepping, Fed speak is usually as easy to comprehend as Marlon Brando's Godfather character Don "Mumbles" Corleone.

The Net Neutrality Scam / Politics / Internet

By: MISES

Ryan W. McMaken writes: Yet again, the government wants to fix a problem that doesn’t exist. According to the Obama administration and the FCC, it is necessary to regulate internet service providers so that they don’t interfere with people’s access to the web. The claim immediately prompts one to ask: Who is being denied access to the web?

Greece, Europe Briefing For A Descent Into Hell / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Oh well, some are more equal than others. One day after Eurogroup head Dijsselbloem says France won’t get any more lenience …

France Must Respect EU Budget Rules

France must meet EU budget targets or risk damaging the bloc’s entire framework for policing countries’ spending plans, the head of the Eurogroup said on Tuesday. “I don’t think small or larger countries should be treated differently … It is crucial for the credibility of the whole fiscal framework that also France commits to it, both in fiscal terms and in reform terms,” Jeroen Dijsselbloem, who chair meetings of eurozone finance ministers, told the European Parliament. “I think that the Commission has allowed itself and France more time to scrutinise the figures but also to take more measures and prepare more proposals. The Commission will assess them first and then report to us at the beginning of March.”

What To Do While Waiting to End the Fed / Politics / US Federal Reserve Bank

By: MISES

John P. Cochran writes: There is a sliver of good news on the central banking front. Given the Fed’s poor performance before and after the 2007–08 financial crisis and Great Recession, and its now recognized 100 year history of failure, at least some members of Congress, even without Ron Paul, are now willing to consider major reform. Many libertarians who recognize that the correct long-run reform is to “End the Fed” — or essentially eliminate central banking (see here or here) — have focused most on the Audit the Fed Bill. On the other hand, non-Austrian economists have been more focused on the Federal Reserve Accountability and Transparency Act and its aimed reform: a rules based policy rather than current Fed discretionary policy which is counter-productive, if not destructive of prosperity.

How to Borrow Cheaply from a Government-Owned Bank / Politics / Banking Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: The free market for banking services in the United States isn't a free market at all.

The truth is the biggest commercial banks in America operate with virtual impunity as a government-subsidized, government-protected oligopoly.

So, why don't we drop the pretense that government-owned banks don't belong in a free market economy and create a network of honest state-owned banks to compete with so-called private banks?

Europe - The Intersection of Three Crises / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

Reva Bhalla writes: Within the past two weeks, a temporary deal to keep Greece in the eurozone was reached in Brussels, a cease-fire roadmap was agreed to in Minsk and Iranian negotiators advanced a potential nuclear deal in Geneva. Squadrons of diplomats have forestalled one geopolitical crisis after another. Yet it would be premature, even reckless, to assume that the fault lines defining these issues are effectively stable. Understanding how these crises are inextricably linked is the first step toward assessing when and where the next flare-up is likely to occur.

U.S. Interventionism Kills Post-Coup Ukraine / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

It was one year ago last weekend that a violent coup overthrew the legally elected government of Ukraine. That coup was not only supported by US and EU governments -- much of it was actually planned by them. Looking back at the events that led to the overthrow it is clear that without foreign intervention Ukraine would not be in its current, seemingly hopeless situation.

Swimming With Sharks: Goldman Sachs, Schools and Capital Appreciation Bonds / Politics / Banksters

By: Ellen_Brown

The fliers touted new ballfields, science labs and modern classrooms. They didn’t mention the crushing debt or the investment bank that stood to make millions. Melody Peterson, Orange County Register, Feb. 15, 2013

Remember when Goldman Sachs—dubbed by Matt Taibbi the Vampire Squid—sold derivatives to Greece so the government could conceal its debt, then bet against that debt, driving it up? It seems that the ubiquitous investment bank has also put the squeeze on California and its school districts. Not that Goldman was alone in this; but the unscrupulous practices of the bank once called the undisputed king of the municipal bond business epitomize the culture of greed that has ensnared students and future generations in unrepayable debt.

Greece Crisis - Throw Your Grandma Under The Bus / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Before we get news in a few hours on the new proposals Greece is required to hand to its slavemasters today, Monday Feb 23, it seems relevant to point out one more time that what is happening to Greece is the result of political, not economic, decisions and points of view. One could argue that Greece is being thrown under the bus because it’s not – yet – deeply enough entangled and enmeshed in the global financial matrix. Just think back to a point Gordon Kerr of Cobden Partners made a few days ago on Bloomberg:

Greece Surrenders to Troika / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Stephen_Lendman

Instead of renouncing its odious debt and walking away, Athens agreed to pay bankers first, maintain austerity, and let long-suffering Greeks continue taking the hindmost.

SYRIZA campaign pledges proved hollow. Pleasing Brussels and Washington matters more.

50 Shades of Greece / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Raul_I_Meijer

When it comes to the ongoing Greek question, I see a lot of people eagerly jump to conclusions, after the ‘debt deal’, that I don’t think are justified; certainly not yet. The overall conviction in the press seems to be that Syriza has given in on just about all fronts, and Germany and Dijsselbloem are the big winners.

But since that may well be the exact position Syriza wants ‘the other side’ to be in, where they think they have prevailed, one will have to try and think a few steps ahead before judging the situation. There’s far more grey area here than many pundits seem to assume, easily 50 shades of it.
