Investors Business Daily Op-Ed: “The downing of Malaysia Flight 17 casts new light on just how inept and decadent the United States and Europe have become.

Faced with Russia’s annexation of Crimea and attempts to repeat in eastern Ukraine, the best Western Europe and the U.S. have mustered are strong words and token sanctions on top Russian officials and several companies.”

The Daily Beast: “Now that the U.S.-Russia relationship has broken down, Moscow could throw a wrench into the teetering nuclear negotiations with Iran.

The escalating tensions between Washington and Moscow, brought to fever by the MH17 airliner disaster, are finally to the point where they threaten to spoil the number one item on President Obama’s foreign policy agenda: the nuclear talks with Iran. The man doing the threatening is Russian President Vladimir Putin.”

Opinion: July 16, 2014 President Obama said this “We have repeatedly made clear that Russia must halt the flow of fighters and weapons across the border. We have to see concrete actions and not just words.”

With those words, new sanctions were imposed on Russia that target major banks, energy companies, the Russian defense industry, and individuals the White House said were responsible for the continuing support of the Ukrainian separatists .

On July 17 a surface-to-air missile hit flight MH17.

At this point the war of words between the two presidents is crucial. The US must move quickly to form an energy policy to supply Europe or Putin could punish the EU this winter.

At the same time the US must supply Ukraine with weapons or the Russian Czar will push harder to acquire his former empire.

If all the US can do is threaten to isolate Russia economically, it will only make maters worse.

Zero Hedge, Martin Armstrong: “I have been warning that there is an idea that has been running around behind the curtain that the national debt of the USA could be settled by usurping all pension funds in the country. Here is a remarkable blueprint that throws all previous considerations concerning the purchase of government bonds over the cliff. The IMF working paper from December 2013 states boldly:

The distinction between external debt and domestic debt can be quite important. Domestic debt issued in domestic currency typically offers a far wider range of partial default options than does foreign currency–denominated external debt. Financial repression has already been mentioned; governments can stuff debt into local pension funds and insurance companies, forcing them through regulation to accept far lower rates of return than they might otherwise demand.”

Opinion: “The rich rules over the poor, And the borrower is servant to the lender” Proverbs 22:7.

Debt is the scourge of our nation. The total of national debt and unfunded liabilities of the United States is over $100 trillion and growing by the second.

There are four options:

  • Devalue the currency
  • Confiscate savings
  • Raise taxes
  • All of the above

Politicians tell us that they are fighting to save the middle class and help the poor when in actuality they are taking from the poor and middle class and giving it to the rich.

Almost 5 trillion in stimulus was given to large money center banks via innocuous names like Quantitative Easing and Twist. The maneuvers  are devaluing the US dollar, forcing us to pay more for everything, while making stock equity prices rise. The rich are getting much richer.

Martin Armstrong is right, ”People are blind.”
