"For those of you who have been following my work since 2007, the name Neithercorp is easily recognizable, and brings back (at least for me) very fond memories. Neithercorp.us is where Josh Ogden and I began our fight against mainstream disinfo on the web. It is where we learned the intricacies of information excavation and dissemination. It is where the roots of the Alternative Market Project began. So that we do not forget our foundations, and so that newer readers can view some of our older work, I will occasionally post articles and videos from the Neithercorp archives. The first, of course, has to be Sons Of Darkness, Sons Of Light, a short film meant to be a part of a longer series (which I hope we will one day be able to finish). The first episode delves into the psychological and philosophical world of Collectivists. Collectivism as an institution and its manipulation by elitists is the source of nearly every political and social ill in history, and hopefully, this film explains clearly why. It features the incredible video design of Josh Ogden, and the voice of yours truly. Enjoy..."

U.S. versus EU: A Game Of Hot Potato…To The Death?
September 19, 2011
By Brandon Smith
There are two mainstream market assumptions that, in my mind, prevail over all others. The continuing function of the Dow, the sustained flow of capital into and out of the banking sector, and the full force spending of the federal government are ALL entirely dependent on the lifespan of these dual illusions; one, that the U.S. Dollar is a legitimate safe haven investment and will remain so indefinitely, and two, that China, like many other developing nations, will continue to prop up the strength of the dollar indefinitely because it is “in their best interest”. In the dimly lit bowels of Wall Street such ideas are so entrenched and pervasive, to question their validity is almost sacrilegious. Only after the recent S&P downgrade of America’s AAA credit rating did the impossible become thinkable to some MSM analysts, though a considerable portion of the day-trading herd continue to roll onward, while the time bomb strapped to the ass end of their financial house is ticking away.
The debate over the health and longevity of the dollar comes down to one very simple and undeniable root pillar of economics; supply and demand. The supply of dollars throughout the financial systems of numerous countries is undoubtedly overwhelming. In fact, the private Federal Reserve has been quite careful in maintaining a veil of secrecy over the full extent of dollar saturation in foreign markets in order to hide the sheer volume of greenback devaluation and inflation they have created. If for some reason the reserves of dollars held overseas by investors and creditors were to come flooding back into the U.S., we would see a hyperinflationary spiral more destructive than any in recorded history. As the supply of dollars around the globe increases exponentially, so too must foreign demand, otherwise, the debt machine short-circuits, and newly impoverished Americans will be using Ben Franklins for sod in their adobe huts. As I will show, demand for dollars is not increasing to match supply, but is indeed stalled, ready to crumble. Read More
Why Obama should withdraw
September 9, 2011
By Steve Chapman
When Ronald Reagan ran for re-election in 1984, his slogan was "Morning in America." For Barack Obama, it's more like midnight in a coal mine.
The sputtering economy is about to stall out, unemployment is high, his jobs program may not pass, foreclosures are rampant and the poor guy can't even sneak a cigarette.
His approval rating is at its lowest level ever. His party just lost two House elections — one in a district it had held for 88 consecutive years. He's staked his future on the jobs bill, which most Americans don't think would work.
The vultures are starting to circle. Former White House spokesman Bill Burton said that unless Obama can rally the Democratic base, which is disillusioned with him, "it's going to be impossible for the president to win." Democratic consultant James Carville had one word of advice for Obama: "Panic." Read More
