Is a US-Iran War Inevitable? / Politics / US Politics

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. This mandate includes certain birth control devices that are considered abortifacients, like IUDs and the "morning after" pill.

Unemployment, Foreclosures, Rising Debts and Despair: AMERICA'S SOCIAL CRISIS / Politics / Social Issues

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article2012 is going to be a difficult year, but not as dreadful as anticipated. The neutralization process, as usual, we covered over by the availability of money and credit. We have already seen that via Fed $1 trillion loans to the ECB and the admission by the Fed that QE 3 is on the way. In Europe banks have borrowed $3.2 trillion and they find they will need $1 trillion more. These borrowings are more than troubling and indicate that there are 523 banks in Europe in serious trouble.

Don't Be A Domesticated Extremist / Politics / US Politics

By: Jeff_Berwick

There are countless reasons why leaving the country that purports to own you has advantages. For one, whenever I return to my personal home country of Canada - never for pleasure, only for business - I will usually run across a typically socialist Canadian who will take great offence to my worldview and will tell me, "If you don't like it, leave!"

Nothing makes me happier than to tell them, "I did... and I'm so much happier now."

24 Signs That We Are Getting Dangerously Close to a Major War in the Middle East / Politics / Middle East

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEnd of the American Dream writes: Is 2012 the year when we will see a major war in the Middle East? For years we have heard about rising tensions in the Middle East, and for years we have heard politicians express concerns about Iran's nuclear program, but now things really do seem to be reaching a boiling point. In just the past few days, the U.S. government has imposed tough new sanctions on Iran and has totally shut down the U.S. embassy in Syria. The truth is that we are getting dangerously close to a major war in the Middle East. So will Israel strike Iran at some point in the next few months? Will the U.S. military intervene in the rapidly escalating conflict inside of Syria? If a major war does erupt, it could send the price of oil skyrocketing and there is the potential that the war could broaden very quickly. Hezbollah has already indicated that it will side with Syria, and there is always the potential that Hamas could as well. Russia and China have both stated that they are completely opposed to military action by the United States against Iran and Syria, and they have even hinted that they would possibly even help defend those countries. As the nations of the world take sides, there is even the potential that we could see World War III develop. Let us hope that it never comes to that, but with the world as unstable as it is right now, you never know what may happen.

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWashington has made tremendous preparations for a military assault on Iran. There is speculation that Washington has called off its two longest running wars – Iraq and Afghanistan – in order to deploy forces against Iran. Two of Washington’s fleets have been assigned to the Persian Gulf along with NATO warships. Missiles have been spread amongst Washington’s Oil Emirate and Middle Eastern puppet states. US troops have been deployed in Israel and Kuwait.

Bring Down the New World Order with Free Market Education / Politics / Education

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn my report, "The Crucial Pillar of the New World Order," I argued that education is the key to the modern New World Order, or Superclass, as David Rothkopf calls it. The system of about 20 elite universities, plus a handful of exclusive four-year private colleges, is the crucial institutional means of screening entry into the inner ring of power.

I argued that a great shift has been in progress since 1960. The best universities began to screen by means of a specific kind of intellect, namely, the ability to take written examinations. I described this as the Prussian system. It is a system based on merit, but a peculiar form of merit: performance on exams. Writing well also counts. As these formal criteria have been made the barriers to entry, legacy sons from the Old World Order have not gained entry.
