The Geopolitical Strategy Of The US’ Global Hegemony By A Notorious Russophobe Zbigniew Brzezinski

from Oriental Review:

f we have to use force, it is because we are America.

We are the indispensable nation.

(Madeleine K. Albright, February 1998)[1]

Madam Secretary

As a matter of very fact, regardless to the reality in global politics that the Cold War was over in 1989, Washington continued to drive toward the getting the status of a global hyperpower at any expense for the rest of the world. The Balkans undoubtedly became the first victim in Europe of the old but esthetically repacked American global imperialism. The US’ administration is a key player during the last 25 years of the Balkan crisis caused by the bloody destruction of ex-Yugoslavia[2] in which Washington played a crucial role in three particular historical cases:

Stock Market Crash: The Dow Has Fallen Nearly 2,500 Points And FAANG Stocks Have Lost A TRILLION Dollars In Value

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

Thanksgiving week was not supposed to be like this.  Normally things are slow in the days leading up to Thanksgiving as investors prepare to gorge themselves with turkey and stuffing as they gather with family and friends.  But this year the stock market is crashing, and Wall Street is in panic mode.  On Tuesday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 24,465.64, which is nearly 2,500 points lower than the all-time high of 26,951.81 that was set in early October.  But as I noted yesterday, what has been happening to tech stocks is even more dramatic.  Each one of the FAANG stocks is now down by more than 20 percent, and they have combined to lose more than a trillion dollars in value.  We haven’t seen anything like this since the financial crisis of 2008, and at this point all of Wall Street’s gains for 2018 have been completely wiped out.

The Edge of Night – Transition Time

by Gary Christenson, Miles Franklin:

The economic world is always changing, but the 2018-2019 period will mark an important transition. Consider credit market debt, interest rates, stock indices, individual stocks, and several ratios.

TOTAL CREDIT MARKET DEBT per the St. Louis Fed.

That measure of U.S. debt increased exponentially from 1951 to 2007 at a rate of 8.8% per year. However, the rate from 2008 to 2017 has been only 2.6% per year. A sixty-year trend changed during the 2007-08 financial crisis. As suggested by others the U.S. reached debt saturation. The economy has not recovered since the crisis. The graph of credit market debt supports that thesis.

Many OTC drugs are linked to an increased risk of hearing loss

by RJ Jhonson, Natural News:

Among the side effects caused by prescription medications, only the severe ones seem to grab the public’s attention. Relatively milder adverse outcomes, such as ototoxicity, are usually ignored, no matter how common they may be. As a result, there is a considerable chance that your medicine cabinet currently contains a drug that can permanently and irreversibly damage your sense of hearing.

What’s worrisome is that the drugs noted for being ototoxic – toxic to your ears – include those that are easily obtainable. Common over-the-counter pain relievers like ibuprofen and acitaminophen (Tylenol) are two of the drugs on the list – when used two or more times in a single week, they can increase your risk of suffering from hearing loss.

If Silver Were Currency or Money It Would Mean Something…

by Rory Hall, The Daily Coin:

There are going to be people that get upset at what I’m about say. To that, I say, it is not important. What is important is the truth. Not how many subscriptions a person sells, which I’m not selling anything, or how much product a person sells based on fear or love. It is about truth and only truth matters.

Silver was demonetized in 1873 and has not been currency since that year. It was removed from our coinage over a fear of hoarding the silver and driving up cost of coin production. There were probably other factors that went into the decision but I do not know what those other factors could be.

Devin Nunes: ‘Fourth bucket’ of classified emails show info withheld from FISA court

from True Pundit:

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., revealed the existence of a “fourth bucket” of information related to potential misconduct by the FBI that he wants declassified.

On his way out as chairman, as Democrats will take control of the House next year, Nunes said his panel’s investigation into the Justice Department and FBI is largely complete. Still, he said the public release of these “buckets” would help give his efforts a sense of “finality.”

San Francisco Judge Blocks Asylum Ban For Aliens Who Cross Border Illegally…

from Conservative Treehouse:

Late last night another activist judge, U.S. District Judge Jon Steven Tigar in San Francisco (Obama appointee), issued a temporary restraining orderagainst the Trump administration’s modified emergency asylum policy which barred asylum for aliens who enter the country illegally.

[Read Court Ruling HERE] Setting up, yet again, another likely higher court appeal/decision.

While a challenge was predictable, frustrating and likely to be spun up by media, the ruling only applies to aliens who gain illegal entry and request asylum.

How the US Creates ‘Sh*thole’ Countries

by Robert Fantina, Consortium News:

A new collection of essays, edited by former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, clearly shows that it is the U.S. that is largely responsible for the poverty and suffering in these very nations, says Robert Fantina.

In two years, the world has become accustomed to being shocked by the words and actions of United States President Donald Trump. In January of this year, he again showed his lack of diplomacy, tack and common decency, when he referred to many poorer countries as “sh*ithole countries”, asking, “Why do we want all these people from sh*thole countries coming here?” Former member of the House of Representatives Cynthia McKinney, in the new book she has edited, How the US Creates ‘Sh*thole’ Countries, (Clarity Press) has gathered a collection of essays, including one of her own, that clearly shows that it is the U.S. that is largely responsible for the poverty and suffering in these very nations.
