Mainstream Press Has Become Virtual "Escort Services" for Moneyed Elites / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRaw Story writes: More and more mainstream media are brokering cozy relationships between politicians and lobbyists.

The various elite Washington news organizations that have become caught up in the so-called “pay-for-play” or “salon” scandal have now commenced a circular firing squad of sorts—in an effort to distance themselves from their peers whose conduct they are trying to paint as worse than their own.

The Health Care Bill is a Prescription for Disaster / Politics / US Politics

By: Peter_Schiff

The health care bill unveiled this week by the House of Representatives (with the full support of the Obama administration) is one of the worst pieces of legislation ever drafted. If passed, it will reduce the quality and increase the cost of health care in America. But more importantly, it will severely undermine our already weak economy. To burden a country currently in the throes of a violent recession with such a bureaucratic albatross clearly illustrates the scarcity of economic intelligence in Washington.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecord profits were posted by Goldman Sachs on July 14, and a surge in profits at J.P. Morgan Chase were reported two days later, along with reports that record bonuses will be paid out too. Meanwhile, RealtyTrac reported that home foreclosures had risen 15% in the first half of this year, year to year. Guess which headline appears at the top of the news and which headline gets blurred?

US Strategy of Total Energy Control over the European Union and Eurasia / Politics / Energy Resources

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of his first foreign visits as new President took Barack Obama to Ankara for a high-profile meeting with Prime Minister Recep Erdogan and other leading Turkish officials. Obama engaged in classical “horse trading” wheeling and dealing. “I give you support for Turkey’s EU membership; you open the diplomatic door to Armenia,” appears to have been the core of the deal. What other inducements the US President gave in the case of Turkish influence within NATO and such is secondary. Obama’s goal was to break a political deadlock in Turkey to construction of a major gas pipeline to Germany and other EU countries in direct opposition to Russian Gazprom’s South Stream pipeline.

U.S. Reaction to the CIA Assassination Program / Politics / Al-Qeeda

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn June 23, 2009, Director of Central Intelligence Leon Panetta learned of a highly compartmentalized program to assassinate al Qaeda operatives that was launched by the CIA in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. When Panetta found out that the covert program had not been disclosed to Congress, he canceled it and then called an emergency meeting June 24 to brief congressional oversight committees on the program. Over the past week, many details of the program have been leaked to the press and the issue has received extensive media coverage.

From WW II To WW III: Global NATO And Remilitarized Germany / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Global_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRick Rozoff writes: The reunification of Germany in 1990 did not signify a centripetal trend in Europe but instead was an anomaly. The following year the Soviet Union was broken up into its fifteen constituent federal republics and the same process began in Yugoslavia, with Germany leading the charge in hastening on and recognizing the secession of Croatia and Slovenia from the nation that grew out of the destruction of World War I and again of World War II.

Strategic Calculus and the Afghan War / Politics / Afghanistan

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. and allied forces began their first major offensive in Afghanistan under the command of U.S. Gen David Petraeus and Gen. Stanley McChrystal this July. Inevitably, coalition casualties have begun to mount. Fifteen British soldiers have died within the past 10 days — eight of whom were killed within a 24-hour period — in Helmand province, where the operation is taking place. On July 6, seven U.S. soldiers were killed in separate attacks across Afghanistan within a single day, and on July 12 another four U.S. soldiers were reported killed in Helmand.

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmerica is the truest example of what George Bernard Shaw meant when he said "Democracy is a form of government that substitutes election by the incompetent many for the appointment by the corrupt few." Obama is upholding the tradition and then some.

In fact, in less than six months, he's done the impossible. With congressional Democrats, he's compiled a worse record than even his fiercest critics feared, worse than George Bush, straight across the board on both domestic and foreign policies that include:

The Minimum Wage is Maximum Economic Stupidity / Politics / Economic Theory

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a free market, demand is always a function of price: the higher the price, the lower the demand. What may surprise most politicians is that these rules apply equally to both prices and wages. When employers evaluate their labor and capital needs, cost is a primary factor. When the cost of hiring low-skilled workers moves higher, jobs are lost. Despite this, minimum wage hikes, like the one set to take effect later this month, are always seen as an act of governmental benevolence. Nothing could be further from the truth.
