U.S. Secret Armies Gear Up for Global War / Politics / US Politics

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBill Van Auken writes: The “tide of war is receding” is a phrase President Barack Obama has employed ad nauseam—once in his State of the Union address, twice in the course of remarks last month at the unveiling of the Pentagon's new military strategy document, once again during his speech at the United Nations, also in his announcement of troop withdrawals from Iraq and Afghanistan, and in a Veteran's Day address.

U.S. Lawmakers Help Themselves to Congressional Pork / Politics / UK Politics

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: For members of Congress, the only thing better than getting "pork" for the folks back home is getting a slice of that pork for themselves.

Pork, also known as earmarks, describes the long-standing Congressional practice of steering tax money back to home districts to pay for expensive, constituent-pleasing projects.

Central Banks Financial Terrorism / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy decree, by the privately owned Federal Reserve, zero interest rates are here to stay. You do not get to borrow at those rates, only the member banks do. In the latest currency swap (loan) from the Fed to the ECB, European Central Bank, as we noted in previous issues over the last two months, that Europe has been forced to join the Anglo-American system. The system of zero interest rates and the continual creation of money and credit. Due to the Fed’s ability to create endless supplies of money and credit it eventually took over the control of ECB and European monetary policy. These policies starkly point out the zero interest rates and monetary policy of endless money creation is the path to be taken probably by all in the system to lesser or greater degrees. That means no savings and that leaves speculation and the purchase of gold and silver related assets.

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInterviewed by Louis James, Casey Research US-Iranian saber-rattling or impending shoot-out? In his usual, candid manner, contrarian investor Doug Casey talks about why he believes it's serious this time… why the US is the greatest threat to peace today… why Iran might move towards a gold standard… and what smart investors should do.

L: Doug-sama, I've heard you say you think the US is setting Iran up to be the next fall guy in the wag-the-dog show – do you think it could really come to open warfare?

Obama Budget Disaster, Economists' in a Truman Show / Politics / US Politics

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Stockman's Viewpoint on the Obama Budget Disaster

Passing a Federal Budget is a rarity, especially under the administration of a committed Marxist. The Democratic Senate’s strangle hold on bringing up legislation, particularly a budget, goes without saying. What makes this new budget for 2013 any different? This time the day of reckoning hits hard the first of the next year. The recent interview with David Stockman on the Fox Business channel with Neil Cavuto is an extraordinary analysis why the economy will absorb a frightful tax increase all at one time. The fallout to commerce could become the real end of the world scenario. Take the time and watch the insightful observations from a courageous number cruncher who served this nation with distinction during the Reagan Presidency.

Obama Signs the National Defense Authorization Act, a Bad Week For Freedom / Politics / US Politics

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“We have two American flags always: one for the rich and one for the poor. When the rich fly it means that things are under control; when the poor fly it means danger, revolution, anarchy.”- Henry Miller

With each passing week it seems this country spirals further into the depths of a frightening dystopian fantasy reminiscent of Huxley and Orwell’s dark world of isolation, fear and government brutality portrayed in their masterpieces Brave New World and 1984. I keep speculating whether it’s me that’s crazy and not the things I’m witnessing on a daily basis. The President signs the National Defense Authorization Act, passed by an overwhelming majority of Congress, which allows the government to imprison American citizens indefinitely without charge. And there is barely a squeak from the docile masses as they are soothed by Obama promising to never use that part of the law. I bet you $10,000 a President will invoke that portion of the NDAA in the very near future.

Money, Banking, and the Federal Reserve / Politics / Central Banks

By: LewRockwell

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson understood "The Monster". But to most Americans today, "Federal Reserve" is just a name on the dollar bill. They have no idea of what the central bank does to the economy, or to their own economic lives; of how and why it was founded and operates; or of the sound money and banking that could end the statism, inflation, and business cycles that the Fed generates.

Ron Paul, We've Been Neo-Conned! / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe modern-day, limited-government movement has been co-opted. The conservatives have failed in their effort to shrink the size of government. There has not been, nor will there soon be, a conservative revolution in Washington. Political party control of the federal government has changed, but the inexorable growth in the size and scope of government has continued unabated. The liberal arguments for limited government in personal affairs and foreign military adventurism were never seriously considered as part of this revolution.

George Osborne Does Not Care About Bank of England Governor'sĀ Letter / Politics / Inflation

By: Mario_Innecco

The governor of the Bank of England is supposed to write a letter to the Chancellor of the Exchequer (U.K. Finance Minister) explaining why he has not succeeded in maintaining the annual growth in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) within a range between 1% and 3%. The point of maintaining a median CPI around 2% is to safeguard the purchasing power of the currency that Britons use. The Bank of England and H.M. Treasury are supposed to protect the currency of the realm.

Federal Government Spending, Hey, Big Spender? / Politics / Government Spending

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Some political movement ought to unfurl the “Mission Accomplished” banner with regard to reining in federal government spending. As shown in the chart below, in the 12 months ended January 2012, the cumulative total of federal outlays – defense, non-defense, entitlements, interest on the debt, the whole ball of wax – increased only 1.5% vs. the 12 months ended January 2011. The median growth in 12-month cumulative total federal outlays from January 1954 through January 2012 is 6.6%. Starting with the 12 months ended March 2010, this measure of growth in federal outlays has been below the long-run median.

Ron Paul on Obamacare Overreach / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Many religious conservatives understandably are upset with the latest Obamacare mandate, which will require religious employers (including Catholic employers) to provide birth control to workers receiving healthcare benefits.
