China, Iran and Russia Redefining New World Order: UT Professor

China, Iran and Russia Redefining New World Order: UT Professor | Social Justice, Revolution, Media, Education, & Music | Scoop.it

"Many countries have protested against these US imperial dictates, but have so far largely abided by US demands in order to avoid its aggressive behavior. However, with threats now being made against the Russian Federation, alarm bells have begun ringing, as powerful countries see themselves as potential future targets. Economic warfare against another major power will force emerging economic powerhouses to seriously think about the future of global financial and communications systems as well as the immediate need to enhance cooperation and to restructure the global political and economic order."

$1.1TN US Budget Deal Imperiled By Revolt Over Taxpayer Net for Risky Bank Trades

$1.1TN US Budget Deal Imperiled By Revolt Over Taxpayer Net for Risky Bank Trades | Social Justice, Revolution, Media, Education, & Music | Scoop.it
“The House of Representatives is about to show us the worst of government for the rich and powerful,” said Senator Warren in a speech on Wednesday that served to rally opposition.

“The House is about to vote on a budget deal, negotiated behind closed doors, that slips in a deal that would let derivative traders working on Wall Street gamble with taxpayer money and get bailed out by the government when their risky bets threaten to blow up our financial system.”

Warren claims the clause was written by lobbyists for Citigroup and epitomises what is wrong with Washington’s legislative process.

Most Undemocratic Legislature In The Democratic World

Most Undemocratic Legislature In The Democratic World | Social Justice, Revolution, Media, Education, & Music | Scoop.it

The US Senate is by now the most unrepresentative major legislature in the “democratic world.” Thanks to the principle of equal state representation, which grants each state two senators regardless of population, the great majority of people end up grossly marginalized by the body. It’s a problem that has only gotten worse over time. by Daniel Lazare

Bibi Netanyahu Slammed For Poverty In Israel

Bibi Netanyahu Slammed For Poverty In Israel | Social Justice, Revolution, Media, Education, & Music | Scoop.it
The findings of a poverty survey published by Israeli Humanitarian Aid Organization, Latet, showed that there are some 2.546 million poor people in Israel, including 932,000 children, Israel’s Jerusalem Post newspaper reported on Monday.

Based on the report’s findings, 65 percent of impoverished families had to give up on medicine or medical treatment for their children at some point in 2013, while more than one-third of poor children went to work in order to help their families, and, as such, some 30 percent of children dropped out of school last year.

In addition, some 32 percent of poor children were sent to orphanages in 2014, which shows a sharp rise compared to 2013.

The report revealed that one fourth of the children in Israel went to sleep hungry at least a few times every month, while 65 percent of the kids do not receive a hot meal at school.

What Options at the Federal Reserve: A Global Financial Crisis is Looming?

What Options at the Federal Reserve: A Global Financial Crisis is Looming? | Social Justice, Revolution, Media, Education, & Music | Scoop.it
Look at it this way, the U.S. (the West) is facing the greatest potential margin call of all time.  The entire system is a margin call waiting to happen.  Less than 50% of the population supports a majority of the population.  Some people in the U.S. live paycheck to paycheck and have no savings whatsoever.  Real estate is completely levered, banks and brokers levered with all sorts of derivatives.  State and local government finances are in disarray while the federal government is in debt beyond 100% of GDP …with admitted debt, 10 times over with future obligations.  The Fed, for their part has become the biggest hedge fund in the world and have quintupled their balance sheet over 5 years …like I said, we await the biggest margin call of all time.  Never forget this, the dollar has value ONLY because the debt underlying has “value”, a margin call will erase this in a panicked heartbeat!
