US Used Social Media to Foment Ukraine Revolution

The following video records Oleg Tsarov–a Deputy in the Ukraine legislature–warning in A.D. 2013 that the US was using social media on the internet to foment the overthrow of the lawfully-elected Ukrainian government.  At that time, the Ukraine government was seeking closer relations with neighboring Russia.

After a series of violent demonstrations in the capitol of Kiev, in February A.D. 2014, a Ukrainian revolution ensured .  This revolution culminated with the flight and subsequent impeachment of the then-President of Ukraine, Vicktor Yanukovych.

Yanukovych’s  impeachment was followed by a series of quick changes in Ukraine’s sociopolitical system, including the formation of a new interim government, the restoration of their previous constitution, and a call to hold impromptu presidential elections.  Most importantly, the new interim government began to distance itself from Russia and embrace the United States.

The US reportedly hoped to install Anti-Ballistic-Missile (ABM) missiles on Ukraine that could be used to shoot down Russian ICBMs when they were first launched from within Russia and moving slowly.   If the US could install ABMs on Ukrainian soil, it would diminish Russia’s ability to respond to a nuclear “first strike” by the US.

Deflation: Rising & Surprising

According to Wikipedia, the Federal Reserve has three fundamental objectives, established by law, under the Federal Reserve Act of A.D. 1913:

 

“The US Congress established three key objectives for monetary policy in the Federal Reserve Act:  1) Maximum employment; 2) stable prices; and 3) moderate long-term interest rates.”

 

These three objectives are often conflicting and must usually be balanced rather than blindly pursued.

Emergency Powers


James Turk interviews Lawrence Parks on the subject of “emergency powers”.

Note that, in my opinion, the President’s “emergency powers” only apply within the districts and territories “of the United States”.  They do not apply within the borders of the States of the Union (“The United States of America”).  If my opinion is roughly correct, it implies that your exposure to the President’s “emergency powers” may depend on whether you consent to assent to government’s presumption that you are “in” a territorial state (“this state”) of the singular “United States“.

In theory, if you can establish that 1) you’re a man made in God’s image (Genesis 1:26-28); 2) you’re “endowed by your Creator with certain unalienable Rights” (“Declaration of Independence”); 3) are one of the people of a State of the Union (like “The State of Texas”); who 4) is living and working within a State of the Union (a State of “The United States of America“); which 5) is not a “state of emergency”; and who is 6) entitled to “separation of powers”; and 7) therefore does not consent to be subject to administrative law or administrative process; then, 8) you might not be subject to President Obama’s “emergency powers”.

Kent Hovind’s Spiritual War


Creationism:  Endowed by his Creator [courtesy Google Images]

Creationism: “Endowed by his Creator”

Back in the 1990s, I published a magazine called the AntiShyster.  That publication focused mainly on criticizing lawyers and the judicial system, but I also touched on issues of religion.  I’d also sometimes touch on extraneous subjects that simply impressed me as interesting and important.

One of those subjects was Kent Hovind’s arguments in favor of Creationism–the idea that man really was created by God in the way described in Genesis.  According to Hovind, man is not the result of evolution.

At the time, I was in my 40s and regarded myself as semi-educated and reasonably intelligent.  Therefore, I knew that the Theory of Evolution was rational, scientific and undeniable. I wasn’t a “holy roller,” and I dismissed Creationism as a myth unworthy of consideration.

And then I read one of Kent Hovind’s articles that both advocated Creationism and also pointed out great logical flaws in the Theory of Evolution.  I was amazed. I no longer regarded Evolution as rational, scientific and undeniable.  I could see that while “evolution” meant “change” and offered a very logical theory as to how animal “A” changed/evolved into animal “B” which, in turn, changed/evolved into animal “C”–the theory of evolution cannot explain how animal “A” was created and came to be in the first place.

It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World—or, at least, it’s a Mad Economy

Mohamed A. El-Erian is Chief Economic Adviser at Allianz, a multinational financial services company.  He recently authored an article in Business Insider about the A.D. 2014 stock markets entitled “Traditional Factors Alone Don’t Explain This Remarkalbe Year For US Stocks”.

Mr. El-Erian observed that,

 

“2014 has been a remarkable year for US equities–not just in terms of the handsome return for investors (15% for the S&P) but also because of how this was delivered.

“In 2014, the S&P,

“Registered 51 record highs (that’s an average of one a week, the most since 1995);

“Never had more than three days of consecutive losses (a new record);

“Consistently decoupled from potentially damaging historical correlations with other markets, most notably government bonds and commodities; and, in the process,

“Always managed to recover quickly from sudden and scary air pockets.”

 

You have to admit that, when viewed from Mr. El-Erian’s perspective, last year’s US equity markets were almost as surprising as flipping a coin that came up “heads” 50 times in a row.  All this “good luck” makes you wonder.  It makes you want to check the coin to see if it has two “heads”.

Clearly, something strange (or even a little crazy) dominated last year’s markets.

Saudi Arabia & Kuwait Risk Retaliation


Oil Patch Roulette? [courtesy Google Images]

Oil Patch Roulette?

On January 13th, Reuters reported in “Iran’s President Rouhani says countries behind oil price drop will suffer”, that:

 

“Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that countries behind the fall in global oil prices would regret their decision and warned that Saudi Arabia and Kuwait would suffer alongside Iran from the price drop.  ‘Those that have planned to decrease the prices against other countries will regret this decision,’ Rouhani said in a speech broadcast on state television as oil plunged to near six year lows on international markets. ‘If Iran suffers from the drop in oil prices, know that other oil-producing countries such as Saudi Arabia and Kuwait will suffer more than Iran.’

 

Will the falling price of crude oil causes Iran to instigate some form of reprisal, vengeance or even violence against the Saudis or Kuwait?  Assassinations?  Bombings?  Covert support for political dissidents within Saudi Arabia and/or Kuwait?

Will the current fall in oil prices be stopped by the economic forces of supply and demand or by military forces of bang-bang and ka-boom!?
