Debt Wars in Washington: The First Crucible of Choosing Lambs for Sacrifice / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_T_Bucci

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter my wife passed, I moved from my home and applied for an apartment. The stern manager looked at my application with approval but couldn't accept me because I had two ferrets, my only remaining family. He turned and asked: "Can you get rid of one of them?" I quickly replied, "Which one?" He was neutralized. When the Tea-Party/GOP presented President Obama its demands to dismantle Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and entitlements, the President didn't reply "no", and didn't ask "which one". He answered: "We'll negotiate. We'll compromise. We'll make it bipartisan." It was a done deal.

President Obama’s Debt Ceiling Deal More Fizz Than Bang / Politics / US Debt

By: Bob_Kirtley

President Barack Obama announced on Sunday that an agreement between Democrat and Republican leaders had been reached which would reduce the U.S. deficit and postpone default, at least for now. The President said that the agreement would cut about $1 trillion over 10 years and therefore would not have an immediate effect on the fragile U.S. economy. There is also another $1.2 trillion to be cut if a joint committee cannot find at least that amount in budget savings.

The Reality of the Debt Ceiling Drama / Politics / US Debt

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past several weeks, the media has had a field day covering the debt ceiling talks between both political parties. It’s been dominates news headlines for more than a month. Prior to the latest distraction by the media, the focus was Casey Anthony, followed by Congressman Weiner, then Casey Anthony again.

Bipartisan "Russian Roulette", The Debt Ceiling Is Unconstitutional / Politics / US Debt

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe debt ceiling crisis can be averted by enforcing the Fourteenth Amendment, which mandates the government to pay its debts already incurred, including pensions.  That means Social Security, which IS an “entitlement,” in the original sense of the word.  We’re entitled to it because we’ve paid for it with taxes.

Debt Ceiling Crisis Objective is to Scrap Social Security and Medicare / Politics / US Politics

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is still no debt limit for the US Treasury and the protagonists are still playing politics. That leaves a week to find a solution by August 2nd.

The first House passed a $16.7 trillion cut, cap and balance bill calls for a cut in the fiscal September 1st budget for 2012 and a balanced budget amendment that goes into effect in five years. Why five years, so they can amend it in a couple of years? This is truly political theater. This has little to do with the budget and everything to do with political powers. Worse yet, unless it meets the President’s approval, he will veto the bill.

After U.S. Debt Ceiling Agreement - What's Next? / Politics / US Debt

By: George_Maniere

           Before I begin I want to say to my readers that I believe our founding fathers believed that serving in the government was a privilege not a profession. Sadly, when I look at our government I see people in elected office that by any measure have no practical experiences in life. I look and see people that have groomed themselves for a life in the political arena and for the most part their careers have been carefully orchestrated to lead them down that path. As with any generalizations there are exceptions. I am sure that there are members of Congress that had a life in business before they ran for political office. I will use a random example of Speaker of the House John Boehner.

He Once Told the Truth, Obama vs Obama / Politics / US Politics

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs a lawyer, Obama was trained to argue rival positions, depending on who hired him. So, what I am about to present should not be regarded as hypocrisy on his part. Yes, it is hypocrisy by the standards of any normal human being, but not for a lawyer. He is a lawyer. He does what lawyers do. He looks to see who is buttering his bread, and then he presents his case.

When we elect lawyers to political office, this sort of thing happens.

The Kabuki Play On Capitol Hill Comes Right Before The Debt Ceiling Deal / Politics / US Politics

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOh, the gnashing of the teeth, Oh, the flamboyant tactics. Oh, all the breaking news excitement on cable news as the debt ceiling countdown saga went down to the wire with an intense political confrontation of a kind we haven’t seen before …

Or maybe we had---in the TARP debate and so-called Obamacare vote, to cite but two moments of high political drama. Once again, all the key players knew the outcome but wanted to keep us guessing because it served everyone’s interests.

While Washington Fiddled The U.S. Economy Burned! / Politics / US Debt

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile media focus has been almost entirely on the short-term debt ceiling foolishness in Washington, not much attention has been paid to the more serious worsening of the six-month recessionary trend in the economy.

Yet that information and how you handle it will almost surely have more influence on your well-being going forward than Washington’s short-term political game-playing.

USA AAA Credit Rating in Label Only / Politics / US Debt

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSovereigns that bailed out banks are saddled with much greater government debt than before the crisis. In the spring of 2007, the Fed and the U.K.'s FSA reported that the degree of leverage in the global financial system was less than at the time of Long Term Capital Management, but in reality it was much greater. Global regulators are now repeating their mistakes. The risks in the interconnected global banking system have moved to currency trading and currency derivatives (remember the contribution of knock-in options to the 1995 currency crisis), leveraged loans, credit derivatives, market-linked derivatives, speculation in commodities, and both foreign and domestic government debt. Winston Churchill said we must alert somnolent authority to novel dangers; but our regulators are complacent, and the dangers are not novel.

Disastrous Outcomes From An Orchestrated U.S. Public Debt Crisis / Politics / US Debt

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

With the world concerned about US financial credibility and the poor outlook for the US economy, now is not the time for the Republicans to grandstand on the public debt. The debt ceiling needed to be quietly raised. Instead, the Republicans started a fire and then threw gasoline on it, creating an inferno that could burn up the US social safety net or the US Treasury’s credit rating and the US dollar’s role as reserve currency or what remains of the separation of powers.

Why Capitalism Is Worth Defending / Politics / Economic Theory

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnthony Gregory writes: As Obama demonizes the wealthy and pitches a dozen plans to restructure the economy, opponents of this program need a reminder of what exactly we’re fighting for. We are resisting bureaucracy, central planning, and encroachments on our freedom and communities. Yet this does not get to the heart of the matter. We are not only an opposition movement, countering the president and his partisans’ agenda. More fundamentally, we stand in defense of the greatest engine of material prosperity in human history, the fount of civilization, peace, and modernity: Capitalism.

The End Of The False Flag Wars / Politics / Social Issues

By: Andrew_McKillop

It is easy and comforting, for some, to see the recent and current western "military adventures" in lower income, smaller, poorly armed countries as simply a neo-colonial rampage, perhaps with the initial aim of pillaging natural resources, but later on for the simple pleasure of trashing already weak and poor countries to thrill middle class graveside voyeurs with gore and suffering TV clips and newsbytes.

It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years." ~ Alexis de Tocqueville

Washington's Math Adds Up to the Debt Ceiling Deadlock / Politics / US Debt

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: If you've been wondering why your elected officials in Washington can't reach a basic compromise to break the debt-ceiling deadlock, consider this: They can't even get their numbers straight.

Not only do the competing Democratic and Republican plans differ on what counts as a spending cut, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has disputed numbers in both plans.
