http://usawatchdog.com/weekly-news-wrap-up-4-18-14/ A deal to “de-escalate tensions” in the Eastern Ukraine has been reached between the EU, U.S., Russia and Ukraine. I guess this is good news, but I would call it extremely temporary. This is supposed to lead to disarming the pro-Russian militia and returning control of government buildings in Eastern Ukraine. Loyal Ukrainians and pro-Russian factions have been going at it, and I am not sure this deal is going to “de-escalate tensions.”
I don’t think the Russians are worried about sanctions over the Ukraine. I think they and many other countries are trying to halt the use of the U.S. dollar as fast as they can. The latest evidence of that is news of the BRICS making great strides in developing alternatives to the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.
Senate Majority leader Harry Reid says the folks that protested at the Bundy ranch in Nevada recently are “domestic terrorists.” That is harsh language, especially from the government that set up 1st Amendment zones for protestors miles away from the ranch. The 1st Amendment is everywhere in the U.S. I guess all the folks at the BLM failed civics class.
