2008. We had almost as many manic up days back then as crazy down days. Remember how we were saved when Fannie and Freddie got put into conservatorship? Remember how all was good when AIG was taken over by the government? Then we sold off the day tha
The Internet has risen to its all-time high as a primary source of news for Americans with 43 percent now saying they get most of their news on national and international issues from the web, according to a survey published Thursday by the Pew Resear
Resigns from American Physical Society Over Group's Promotion of Man-Made Global Warming Visit Site
In communities across the country we’re hearing “Remember 9-11.” Open the paper, tune the radio station, or flick the channels – the same old 9-11 nonsense is being spouted.
TIME magazine is part of the biggest media conglomerate in the world, and corporate media is the lubricant that keeps the well-oiled military machine humming along so smoothly. By glorifying this "new generation" of veterans, they are adding to the
Is the Senate trying to reignite the Cold War? If so, it is going about it the right way.
"Not Electable" Is Code for "Challenges the Powers-That-Be"
America's WTF (certainly not to be confused with Winning The Future) economy summarized in one easy chart.
I am confident that no news organization believes that it could confront such an important US national myth in this way. The killing of bin Laden satisfies the emotional need for revenge and justice.
The Smart Grid is being used to promote green energy/clean energy/renewable energy. Because global warming (climate change) has been so thoroughly discredited, global warming policies and regulations are now being forced on us under the banner of gr
I am appalled when angry critics make an "enemy" of the Government. This misdirection of anger is a wasteful exercise of many Libertarians’ energy that we are sadly witnessing, at least here in this website if not all over the Internet .Read Letter
Security company McAfee, which uncovered the intrusions, said it believed there was one "state actor" behind the attacks but declined to name it, though one security expert who has been briefed on the hacking said the evidence points...
Apparently some wars are “holy” and can’t be argued against. All I want is to prevent 18 year old kids from dying. That’s the basis of my argument. We can argue all the history we want after that. No matter what the war is, I will never send my...
With 40,000 foreclosures burdening its books in the first quarter alone, Bank of America (BAC) will begin bulldozing and giving away abandoned homes it can't sell.
The spin that Bank of America is using to justify the notion of bulldozing buildings is that the houses in question are worth bupkis, say $10,000 or less. There’s a wee omission in their discussion. Many if not most of the houses in question have...
DARPA, in a nutshell, wants to know about how stories or narratives or whatever might like to call them influence human behavior.
On Thursday, Defense Department extreme technology arm Darpa unveiled its Social Media in Strategic Communication (SMISC) program. It's an attempt to get better at both detecting and conducting propaganda campaigns on social media.
We can determine precisely what the Birth-Death contribution to the "jobs added" over the past year has been. The result: 606K, or 52% of the NSA jobs added (and 58% of the actual, seasonally adjusted jobs).
Just 48 hours after the onset of the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan, the British government devised a propaganda campaign to downplay the severity of the crisis...
Joe Biden, who now has taken the Fukushima approach to (sur)reality, whereby one merely changes the terms of data measurement when the data does not cooperate. Enter the revised CPI:
It’s a sign of the times that your humble blogger is having to create finely stratified typologies for the various types of (propaganda) dubious research being deployed to promote the idea that rule by our new financial overlords...
The study involved young adults. The more debt incurred by those in the 18-27 age group, the higher their self-esteem and the more in control they felt, according to researchers. But older respondents, in the 28-34 age group, voiced more stress...
I don’t come to the United States very often, and when I do there’s usually a pretty good reason. In this case, it’s because of the annual Atlas 400 meeting which kicks off today in New York.
Our descendents will surely look back on this time and wonder how we could have been so foolish– to let these people rob our freedoms; destroy our economies; kill foreigners on their home soil; and shower themselves with Peace Prize medals…
Try asking a web site for directions without typing in a starting point. The web page will rightly tell you that this is impossible. If you are lost on the ocean, you cannot plot a course for Tahiti.
Iran and Hezbollah had ‘foreknowledge of, and complicity in, the overall design of, and preparations for, the 9/11 attacks, involving, but not limited to, facilitation of the hijackers' international travel, training and through Iran...
The media-government industrial complex – hey, I’ve coined a new catchphrase! – is a force to be reckoned with in today’s America, and make no mistake: it sets the agenda, it defines the issues, it smites its enemies and rewards its sycophants.
The ousted leader will issue a formal, if unconvincing, apology on-air and is expected to hand over his assets
The government has created another reality for us proles. We won again. Us white hats got the black hat, just like in the western movie. Fantasy is better than fact, and us good guys are on a roll. It makes everybody happy...
What's next? Hint: You won't like the answer. - blame Pakistan for harboring Bin Laden, sanctions on Pakistan, seizing Pakistan's nuclear weapons.
