Is the US or the World Coming to an End? — Paul Craig Roberts

Is the US or the World Coming to an End?
It will be one or the other

2014 is shaping up as a year of reckoning for the United States.

Two pressures are building on the US dollar. One pressure comes from the Federal Reserve’s declining ability to rig the price of gold as Western gold supplies shrivel and market knowledge of the Fed’s illegal price rigging spreads. The evidence of massive amounts of naked shorts being dumped into the paper gold futures market at times of day when trading is thin is unequivocal. It has become obvious that the price of gold is being rigged in the futures market in order to protect the dollar’s value from QE.

The other pressure arises from the Obama regime’s foolish threats of sanctions on Russia. Other countries are no longer willing to tolerate Washington’s abuse of the world dollar standard. Washington uses the dollar-based international payments system to inflict damage on the economies of countries that resist Washington’s political hegemony.

This means a big drop in the demand for US dollars and a corresponding drop in the dollar’s exchange value.

As John Williams (shadowstats.com) has made clear, the US economy has not recovered from the downturn in 2008 and has weakened further. The vast majority of the US population is hard pressed from the lack of income growth for years. As the US is now an import-dependent economy, a drop in the dollar’s value will raise US prices and push living standards lower.

All evidence points to US economic failure in 2014, and that is the conclusion of John Williams’ April 9 report.

This year could also see the breakup of NATO and even the EU. Washington’s reckless coup in Ukraine and threat of sanctions against Russia have pushed its NATO puppet states onto dangerous ground. Washington misjudged the reaction in Ukraine to its overthrow of the elected democratic government and imposition of a stooge government. Crimea quickly departed Ukraine and rejoined Russia. Other former Russian territories in Ukraine might soon follow. Protesters in Lugansk, Donetsk, and Kharkov are demanding their own referendums. Protesters have declared the Donetsk People’s Republic and Kharkov People’s Republic. Washington’s stooge government in Kiev has threatened to put the protests down with violence. http://rt.com/news/eastern-ukraine-viole...eats-405/ Washington claims that the protests are organized by Russia, but no one believes Washington, not even its Ukrainian stooges.
Russia and China have had enough. As I have reported and as Peter Koenig reports here http://www.informationclearinghouse.info...e38165.htm Russia and China are disconnecting their international trade from the dollar. Henceforth, Russia will conduct its trade, including the sale of oil and natural gas to Europe, in rubles and in the currencies of its BRICS partners.

Russian news reports have identified US mercenaries among the Kiev force that has been sent to put down the separatists in eastern Ukraine. A member of the right-wing, neo-Nazi Fatherland Party in the Kiev parliament has called for shooting the protesters dead.

Violence against the protesters is likely to bring in the Russian Army and result in the return to Russia of its former territories in Eastern Ukraine that were attached to Ukraine by the Soviet Communist Party.

With Washington out on a limb issuing threats hand over fist, Washington is pushing Europe into two highly undesirable confrontations. Europeans do not want a war with Russia over Washington’s coup in Kiev, and Europeans understand that any real sanctions on Russia, if observed, would do far more damage to Europeans. Within the EU, growing economic inequality among the countries, high unemployment, and stringent economic austerity imposed on poorer members have produced enormous strains. Europeans are in no mood to bear the brunt of a Washington-orchestrated conflict with Russia. While Washington presents Europe with war and sacrifice, Russia and China offer trade and friendship. Washington will do its best to keep European politicians bought-and-paid-for and in line with Washington’s policies, but the downside for Europe of going along with Washington is now much larger.

Across many fronts, Washington is emerging in the world’s eye as duplicitous, untrustworthy, and totally corrupt. A Securities and Exchange Commission prosecuting attorney, James Kidney used the occasion of his retirement to reveal that higher ups had squelched his prosecutions of Goldman Sachs and other “banks too big to fail,” because his SEC bosses were not focused on justice but “on getting high-paying jobs after their government service” by protecting the banks from prosecution for their illegal actions. http://www.counterpunch.org/2014/04/09/65578/

Great read! It's just a matter of time before the most horrific monetary and foreign policy on the planet comes home to roost.
The dollar is headed for rough waters, but this is by design.

Quote:When I asked a senior member of the Obama administration last week, ‘How are we going to grow exports if we won’t allow nominal wage deflation?’

He says, ‘we’re just going to kill the dollar.’

iagree.gif The air is so charged with war you can practically cut it with a knife.

The cull seems right around the corner.

Around 150,000 people die every day and so for each and every one of them their world has come to an end and so in reality this world ends about 6,250 times an hour around 100 times a minute...

This is the unique standing with the current empire in America.

Not only is America exceptionally powerful militarily, but its currency is in global circulation. Not only this but that currency is printed by a private bank, not by the government. Same bankers are involved in the majority of other nations banks, and with interest etc it is in their best interest to have war.

Plus many of the academic and intellectual leaders out there are Fabians, looking to lower population rates in any way they can to have a utopian state.

Designed collapse to attempt global unity at a later date?

Well this will be the first time outright war was not the method, but those Fabians are patient as hell.

I turned myself to consider wisdom and madness and folly
The wise man’s eyes are in his head,
But the fool walks in darkness.
Yet I myself perceived
That the same event happens to them all.

Thank you JR for remind me the 50% or less rule.
The analysis is chilly truth. I am skeptic about war, not this time. 2012 is over and the old roman empire have no more credits. Take a look around you - people have wakened up. I don't mean sheeple or entities that "think" with their spinal column. We people usually give credits to what we believe as truth, religious customs, and of sort. But this has change since 2012. Don't you think so? Look at US/english forums - there is boiling tension of wrath against all circumcised financial robbers and politics altogether. Even the paid government shills can't manage the situation. It's boiling.
But if war become reality, then I predict - in matter of weeks Putin's troops will be at the Channel and USA will exist no more. Russians have prepare for this invasion since Stalin time and is matter of long time imperial strategy. We know less than 10% what this super powers are capable of. Kiev was first capital of Russian empire, Ukraine exist for the first time with Lenin's decret, the meaning of word "ukraine" mean the border region, place at the end of the country. Polish shlyachta play with the fire together with khazarian Usrael.
Russia has always mean slavery, so is USA.
