WASHINGTON: U.S. legislation renewing and tightening sanctions on Russia, stalled in the House of Representatives, was not passed before the U.S. and Russian presidents met at the G20 summit in Hamburg. The proposed bill had already received criticism not only from Russia but also from Germany and Austria about the impact sanctions may have on Europe’s gas supply.
Europe and the United States need not worry: Energy markets have undergone significant transformation in favor of importers, and Russia’s tough talk warning against sanctions is little more than posturing. Russia needs Europe as a market for its oil and gas. Continue reading →
Freedoms are eroding on the homeland and soon a lot of patriots won’t even be able to get out. Americans are being corralled like cattle in a legal manner and soon to be imprisoned in their own country.

If “all hell breaks loose” you could expect the EU to face serious turmoil and possibly crumble. If Greece can’t make a payment, then Germany can’t get paid. Germany’s Deutsche Bank has $72.8 trillion in derivatives exposure while its GDP is roughly $2.7 trillion. The contagion would then spread to South America (think Venezuela/Argentina defaults) because of the interconnectedness of investments and would head north all the way up to Mexico for another default. When the wave hits Mexico, America has two weeks before its collapse.
Washington (AFP) – US Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew warned Congress on Wednesday that foreign turmoil, such as Greece’s debt crisis, could destabilize the US financial system.
“In today’s globally integrated financial markets, foreign shocks have the potential to disrupt financial stability in the United States,” Lew said in testimony to the House of Representatives financial services committee.
US President Barack Obama’s administration may give Russia classified information on anti-missile systems, US Assistant Defense Secretary Brad Roberts said at the committee for the armed forces of the House of Representatives, Interfax reports.
George Bush’s administration had the same initiative, Roberts said. Three-star General Patrick O’Reilly, head of the anti-missile defense of the Pentagon, said that he received no requests to give classified information.
