Glaring Anomalies in the Official Narrative On Bin Laden Assassination / Politics / US Politics

By: Global_Research

Felicity Arbuthnot writes: “In politics stupidity is not a handicap”, Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821.)

For those who believe in omens, the triumphal announcement of the murder of Osama bin Laden, his son and various of his household (if it were he) by US., special forces, did not bode well.

The West Is Trapped In By Own Propaganda / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

One of the wishes that readers often express to me came true today (May 11).  I was on the mainstream media.  It was a program with a worldwide reach--the BBC World Service.  There were others on the program as well, and the topic was Hillary Clinton’s remarks (May 10) about the lack of democracy and human rights in China.

Gasbag Hillary Clinton Blasts China on Human Rights / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs there anything more irritating than listening to US officials blabber about "human rights"?

I mean, really, doesn't it drive you crazy? Here's Hillary Clinton bashing China for their "deplorable" human rights record, and meanwhile Bradley Manning sits naked and freezing in a 6' by 8' cinderblock cell in some far-flung American gulag waiting to get fingernails yanked out. Can you see the hypocrisy?

China, The New Bin Laden, Orwell Wrote The Script / Politics / US Politics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGeorge Orwell, the pen name by which Eric Blair is known, had the gift of prophecy, or else blind luck. In 1949 in his novel, 1984, he described the Amerika of today and, I fear, also his native Great Britain, which is no longer great and follows Washington, licking the jackboot and submitting to Washington’s hegemony over England and Europe and exhausting itself financially and morally in order to support Amerikan hegemony over the rest of the world.

America's Homeless Middle Class / Politics / Social Issues

By: Videos

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSimple luxuries like taking a family vacation or just taking the kids out to eat is nothing but a distant memory to many American families who once considered themselves middle class and are now just fighting to stay off the streets. After one of the worst economic downturns in our history, families who were breathing easy, just a couple of years ago, are now buried in a mountain of debt and being forced from their homes.

Religion Misusing the Word GOD / Politics / Social Issues

By: Richard_C_Cook

2011 is the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible.

The most misused word in the English language may be the one spelled G-O-D. It is a word used freely and frequently by hundreds of millions of English-speaking people who belong to the Christian churches, and even as a curse word by many people.

Bin Laden Death Story Illustrates Americans Are Living In 1984 / Politics / US Politics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe White House’s “death of bin Laden” story has come apart at the seams. Will it make any difference that before 48 hours had passed the story had changed so much that it no longer bore any resemblance to President Obama’s Sunday evening broadcast and has lost all credibility?

On the Elimination of Osama bin Laden / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Last week marked an important milestone in the war on terrorism for our country. Osama bin Laden applauded the 9/11 attacks. Such deliberate killing of innocent lives deserved retaliation. It is good that bin Laden is dead and justice is served. The way in which he was finally captured and killed shows that targeted retribution is far superior to wars of aggression and nation-building. In 2001 I supported giving the president the authority to pursue those responsible for the vicious 9/11 attacks. However, misusing that authority to pursue nation-building and remaking the Middle East was cynical and dangerous, as the past ten years have proven.

END OF THE CITY OF GODS: A Fictional Account of the Last Priest of Teotihuacan / Politics / Social Issues

By: Stephen_Merrill

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Teotihuacan Empire (100 B.C. to 700 A.D.) was in the southwest edge of North America, generally near modern day Mexico City stretching south to the northern portion of Central America at its largest.   The City of Teotihuacan itself had as many as 200,000 inhabitants at its peak, one of the largest and one of the richest cities in the world at the time.  In 500 A.D., as Teotihuacan prospered, Europe had squandered the technical and institutional progress made during the Western Roman Empire.  For another hundreds of years Europe was trapped in a despotic cycle of repression and mysticism now known as the Dark Ages.

Bernanke's Bubblenomics; Who Wins and Who Loses / Politics / Central Banks

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLet's talk Bubbles.

Assets bubbles require massive amounts of leverage. But too much leverage can destabilize the system, so it needs to be regulated. But Wall Street doesn't like restrictions on leverage because it can make more money by borrowing like crazy, inflating a ginormous bubble, skimming off the profits, and cashing in before the crash. So, the Fed ignores Wall Street's "gearing" operations and pretends not to see what's going on. It becomes a bubble "enabler" by lowering interest rates, easing credit and waving-off tighter regulations. It's all part of the game. The Fed works to help its core constituents while everyone else is put at risk.

The U.S. is the World's Greatest Purveyor of Violence / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe greatest threat to Libyan sovereignty and independence is the United States of America. Nothing else comes close.

Gaddafi hasn't been targeted because he's a tyrant, but because he sits on an ocean of petroleum. That's what this is all about, right? If Libya's main source of wealth was car parts or coconuts, there never would have been a war.

New York Times, the Lying Mouthpiece for the Fed / Politics / Central Banks

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn August 15, 1971, a Sunday, President Nixon unilaterally suspended the last traces of the gold standard. He "closed the gold window" on his own authority. From that time on, no government or central bank has been able to exchange dollars for Treasury gold at a fixed price. Nixon broke the Bretton Woods agreement of 1944. He broke the nation's word. He cheated. That was his way. Ever since that day, American monetary policy has been Nixonomics.

They Want Us to Love the Fed / Politics / Central Banks

By: William_Anderson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI recently took time from criticizing the actions of the Federal Reserve System (and associating with my "End the Fed" friends) to attend a conference in New York City that was hosted by none other than the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. As much as anything, I was curious as to what goes on at a Fed conference, and it also gave me the chance to visit friends in the area and to appear on Judge Andrew Napolitano's show, Freedom Watch.

Even After Death, Bin Laden Continues to Serve his CIA Masters / Politics / Conspiracy Theory

By: Patrick_Henningsen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs Washington and the CIA scramble to shore-up their official narrative this week, it is reported that “Al-Qaeda” has confirmed the death of its leader Osama Bin Laden, according to a statement attributed to the group.

Following predictable intelligence agency protocol, this scripted statement was posted on a series of seemingly random “jihadist” internet forums.
