The One Two punch of the Dollar Euro to bring about Change??

Euro Pacman eating
Tony Newbill has sent an email that is more like random thoughts than a specific storyline. If there is a common theme it is the world is on verge of global economic chaos and that chaos will affect the Americans live in the future. That future does not look particularly rosy.

I would like for someone to think about how the gloom can be overcome. Perhaps there is something such as using the U.S. Constitution in the manner of its original intent bringing stability in the USA. Or perhaps the predicted chaos will be so bad that a revolution might have to occur to restore the Essential Liberty of Americans. Or perhaps you are a Lefty and actually believe a few elites running a collective can bring a better quality of life. Or perhaps you are one that is weary of the slow disintegration of Biblical Morality which is being replaced by ungodly Moral Relativity validating lifestyles specifically condemned in the Bible. Or perhaps some other restorative idea that reaches beyond the gloomy direction of chaos the world seems to be stumbling towards.

That was just a bit of musing to go along with Newbill’s thoughts found below.

Soros Compares Euro-Zone Crisis With Soviet Collapse

U.S. billionaire investor George Soros compared the euro-zone crisis with factors that led to the Soviet Union’s collapse in the early 1990s.

“Europe is similar to the Soviet Union in the way that the euro crisis has the potential of destroying, undermining the European Union,” he said in a debate on public policy education Tuesday. “With the profound social, economic and moral crisis that Europe is in, we can see a similar process of disintegration.”

Mr. Soros, who was born in the Hungarian capital Budapest, often visits his country of birth to give lectures. The comments echo those he made at a conference in Denmark last week, where he said the euro-zone crisis is “not over yet, and it is going in the wrong direction.”

“The euro is undermining the political cohesion of the European Union, and, if it continues like that, could even destroy the European Union,” he said in comments carried by Reuters. “You can grow out of excessive debt, you cannot shrink out of excessive debt.”

He also said earlier in April the European Union is unlikely to survive the current euro-zone debt crisis without more pragmatic German policies.

“Europe is facing a long period of economic stagnation or worse,” Mr. Soros told a conference in Berlin April 12. German authorities, notably the Bundesbank and the constitutional court, are “dead set” on enforcing laws that have proved to be unworkable and the crisis threatens “still-incomplete political union,” he said.

Mr. Soros said other countries, such as Japan and Latin American nations, have come through similar experiences and survived, but the EU is not a country and is “unlikely to survive.” (WSJ; by Martin Eder; 4/24/12 10:35 AM)

George Soros said that if he were still an active investor, he would now "bet against the euro", at least until there is a change in European leadership or policy.

George Soros has launched all-out war against the Bundesbank.

The euro threatens to destroy the European Union and, with the best of intentions, the leaders are leading Europe to its ruin by trying to impose inappropriate rules.

The introduction of the euro has led to divergence instead of bringing about convergence. The most fragile countries of the eurozone have discovered that they are in a Third World situation, as if they were indebted in a foreign currency, with a crucial effect that there is a real risk of default. Trying to make them respect rules that don’t work just makes matters worse. Sadly, the authorities don’t understand this.

Mario Draghi has launched extraordinary measures with his €1 trillion injection of liquidity through three-year loans. But the effect of this operation has been broken by the counter-attack of the Bundesbank.

Watching the growth of the ECB’s balance sheet, the Bundesbank has realised that it risks heavy loses (sic) if the euro blows up and is therefore opposed to the (LTRO) policy. Let us hope that this does not become a self-fulfilling prophesy.

It follows a Süddeutsche Zeitung interview last Friday in which he accused "Bundesbank bureaucrats" of standing ready to smash the euro, exceeding their constitutional and political authority.

Mr Soros has some expertise in this field. His cue for launching a speculative attack – with others – on Sterling and the Lira in September 1992 came after Bundesbank chief Helmut Schlesinger told Handelsblatt that the two currencies were overvalued within the ERM peg. There would have to be realignment. (The Telegraph; by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard; 4/19/12 READ THE REST)

So if the destabilization of the Euro were to happen would it lead to a destabilization of the Dollar as well? And would the Supply of goods from Brazil, Russia, India & China (BRIC) nations be interrupted due to a Euro Dollar rejection by the BRIC nations?

Is this scenario being prepared for by what we see going on below? To bring change you need a crisis that you can then be the remedy for, right?

Department of Defense Confirms Russian Troops to Conduct Terror Drills Inside U.S.

The Department of Defense has confirmed various foreign and alternative media reports that claimed Russia troops will be conducting unprecedented anti terrorism drills inside the United States.

In an email to the New American, Cmdr. Wendy L. Snyder, U.S. Defense Press Officer for policy confirmed the reports:

“The Russian soldiers are here as invited guests of the U.S. government; this is part of a formal bilateral exchange program between the U.S. and Russia that seeks to develop transparency and promote defense reform,” Cmdr. Wendy L. Snyder, U.S. Defense Press Officer for policy, told The New American in an e-mail. “This is the first time that American and Russian special operations troops have participated in a bilateral exercise.”

According to Snyder, the exercises — which she said would last about three weeks in all — will serve to train and improve skills related to terror-war fighting. About 20 Russian soldiers will be participating, with most of the training to take place on the Fort Carson, Colorado, Army base and a mountain training area several hours away.

“Aside from typical military training, the exchange will include discussions on the rule of land warfare, developing appropriate rules of engagement, and employing cultural literacy and competency in the tactical environment,” Snyder explained. “This type of training is routinely conducted by 10th Special Forces Group.”

The drills, which will take place throughout May, mark the first time that Russian and US troops will train along side each other on American soil and correlate with a long line of Foreign military’s training to take on the American people.

The above fact, coupled with claims that President Obama has taken Russian money to fund his campaign, have stoked fears over the use of foreign, communist military’s to take on the American people in a time of crisis. (; by Alex Thomas; 4/27/12. READ ENTIRITY)

Paul Ehrlich on depopulation: 'We're going to go over the top' - audio

My worry is Power and consolidation of power into the Federal Government of the Means to Create and Distribute vital human resources rather than a privately produced supply of these resources due to an Inequity issue while the technocrats are Talking about depopulation. They are talking because politics and Power Always collide. And if we the people do not keep these powers separated with the States separate from the Federal Government - when the Federal Government is being advised by these ideologues who are speaking about the world’s problems as if this is not a USA problem, but it is what they think is a universal problem. And that an Over Consumption rate in the USA makes it harder for these ideologues to Preach this need for population control all over the world. This is what we need to make the topic of debate because this is the very premise of why we are in economic repression today. And the longer we are in this stall the smaller the supply is getting........

[SlantRight Editor: This Raw Story link provided by Tony Newbill is supportive of depopulating the earth and in redistributing the wealth to elevate the living conditions of the poor. This is classic validation of Eco-Marxism. As you read the article you need to think about how these nuts intend to depopulate the earth by a few billion people and at the same time redistribute wealth to the world’s poor. You need to think because I am guessing the first people to be depopulated are going to be the world’s poor. HELLO!]
Expert warns world needs to move ‘rapidly’ toward ‘population shrinkage’

By John Vidal, The Guardian

The world’s most renowned population analyst has called for a massive reduction in the number of humans and for natural resources to be redistributed from the rich to the poor.

Paul Ehrlich, Bing professor of population studies at Stanford University in California and author of the best-selling Population Bomb book in 1968, goes much further than the Royal Society in London which this morning said that physical numbers were as important as the amount of natural resources consumed.

The optimum population of Earth – enough to guarantee the minimal physical ingredients of a decent life to everyone – was 1.5 to 2 billion people rather than the 7 billion who are alive today or the 9 billion expected in 2050, said Ehrlich in an interview with the Guardian.

“How many you support depends on lifestyles. We came up with 1.5 to 2 billion because you can have big active cities and wilderness. If you want a battery chicken world where everyone has minimum space and food and everyone is kept just about alive you might be able to support in the long term about 4 or 5 billion people. But you already have 7 billion. So we have to humanely and as rapidly as possible move to population shrinkage.”

“The question is: can you go over the top without a disaster, like a worldwide plague or a nuclear war between India and Pakistan? If we go on at the pace we are there’s going to be various forms of disaster. Some maybe slow motion disasters like people getting more and more hungry, or catastrophic disasters because the more people you have the greater the chance of some weird virus transferring from animal to human populations, there could be a vast die-off.”

Ehrlich, who was described as alarmist in the 1970s but who says most of his predictions have proved correct, says he was gloomy about humanity’s ability to feed over 9 billion people. “We have 1 billion people hungry now and we are going to add 2.5 billion. They are going to have to be fed on more marginal land, from water that is purified more or transported further, we’re going to have disproportionate impacts on how we feed people from the population increase itself,” he said.

“Most of the predictions [in Population Bomb] have proved correct. At that time I wrote about climate change. We did not know then if it was warming or cooling. We thought it was going to be a problem for the end of this century. Now we know it’s warming and a problem for the beginning of the century; we didn’t know about the loss of biodiversity. Things have been coming up worse than was predicted. We have the threats now of vast epidemics”.

“I have a grim view of what is likely to happen to my children and grandchildren. Politicians can control the financial mess we are in but they don’t have control over the systems of the planet that provide us our food, our welfare, those are deteriorating and it will take us a long time to turn it around if we start now. It’s hard to think of anything that will pop up and save us. I hope something will but it really will be a miracle.”

But he agreed with the Royal Society report that said human population and consumption should not be divided. “[They] multiply together. You have to be deal with them together. We have too much consumption among the rich and too little among the poor. That implies that terrible thing that we are going to have to do which is to somehow redistribute access to resources away the rich to the poor. But in the US we have been doing the opposite. The Republican party is wildly in favour of more redistribution, of taking money from the poor and giving it to the rich.”
