The United States Federal Reserve, along with five other world bank leaders, had lent money to the European Union as its assets have begun to liquefy. There are two factors in this issues ~ the United States’ granting of money in the face of its depression, and the economic issues involving European countries and diplomatically-entangled nations.
1. The US is in a $15 TRILLION dollar deficit – and this is the amount revealed to the public… We are not in a position to be giving away non-existent money. Our nation has already granted money to the European nations in deficit, and it is detrimental to our domestic economy and our nation to continue bailing them out.
~ In the long term:
We will be unable to gain our return payments from a continued unstable European Union. The printing of more money, and the waste of money from our own government spending, will lead to a dramatic increase of inflation.
2. Germany has one of the (if not THE) strongest economies in the European Union. Germany, if asked to also bail out its neighbors, its own economy will falter if it complies. If Europe has to come to this final outcome, then Germany may not comply and allow the European Union to fall instead of bowing to their level of bankruptcy.
~ In the long term:
China is most definitely looking to aid Europe, as Europe is a major importer of their goods. Military spending of the Chinese, as well as their domestic economy, is dependent upon the flow of money form their foreign consumers. The Chinese may look to the United States (crazy, but possible) to fix this mess, but it will not lower any US expectations to do so.
Overall, this trans-location of money from all about the globe will simply fill a black hole, to pull the countries granting the money towards further deficit of their own. The increased globalization of the world has led to this, in which every nation’s economy is influenced by everyone else. The results of this funneling of international funds will lead to the next global socio-economic demographic transition – and on the largest scale in history.
November 11. Today we remember and thank our veterans and warriors overseas and at home. We thank:
~ The Army. Thank you to the hundreds of thousands who serve in this branch and who are fighting in the Middle East, and everywhere else to protect freedom.
~ The Navy. Thank you for protecting our shores, and for protecting trade routes and international shipping commerce. Thank you for proudly representing America overseas.
~ The Marines. Thank you for being there to actively protect our ideologies, and our way of life.
~ The Air Force. Thank you for constantly protecting American air space, and for continuing to aid American interests internationally.
~ The Coast Guard. Thank you for always being prepared to aid our domestic disasters, and for ensuring efficiency in any issues you face here.
Were it not for the military of the United States of America, the world’s history and geography would be entirely different. Thank you for protecting freedom, liberty, for destroying tyranny, and for always being there for your country.
If you have ever thought of being part of our Military, here is more information. http://www.todaysmilitary.com/
Here are a few videos that I shall begin my thesis with……
Here is some live feed from Maywood, CA – a sanctuary city that did not respect the United States on August 8, 2006.
Finally, the Dream Act has been passed by Jerry Brown this month…….. it will take effect on January 1, 2012.
Thisissue involves the Mexican’s loyalties to Mexico, their bringing crime up to the United States, their stealing of taxpayer money for welfare, their affect on healthcare across the country, their altering of our representation for the worst…… go back to your own country!
I will continue to discuss the issues behind this throughout the week…
China is a growing power, and they are rising in the face of the US recession. They are expanding militarily through the investment in aircraft carriers, cyberwarfare, and space infrastructure. Just this month they launched their first aircraft carrier – with plans on building their own carriers and navy. Many believe that China is looking back at neighboring Japan and Thailand, each of whom also have their own aircraft carriers. China has advanced cybernetics capabilities, as shown in multiple international attacks. The frequency of these attacks will undoubtedly increase with China’s expansion.
Satellites and space communication infrastructure is becoming a major issue with China. They have since began developing their own satellites, and are working on devices that can destroy them. Communications between satellites and the ground will enable for China’s greater efficiency, and for more information on troop logistics. They are also used to network between new air units that are creating the beginnings of a denied airspace over China….
Overall, China is disregarding the United States and going onto their own concerns. The United States is slowing imports, as we have a long ways to go on this recession. China is also beginning to see how much leverage they have with the foreign debt we owe to them. Finally, the leadership of Obama and the diplomacy of self-proclaimed loom Biden does not mean anything to Americans – why should it to China?

The streets of southern Israel are empty as over 1 million Jewish residents hide in bomb shelters. The Gaza strip is being taken over by the new Egyptian regime, and Israel is fighting to protect itself. Just to remind those who do not remember Israel’s borders or proximity to its enemies, here is a video.
Let us hope that Israel is successful in protecting themselves….
The current borders of Israel were created by the UN following World War II, as to keep Israel as an independent, defensible country. Do not allow the US government’s naivety and Anti-Americanism to screw up foreign affairs that belong to other nations.
Obama has finally called for the US to go against Israel. He calls for the lands received during the 1967 Six Day War to be given back to Palestine – before the war, Jewish and Christian graves were desecrated, and members of non-Muslim faith disrespected. Even common sense would dictate that it would go back to this past, as the entire region has vowed to destroy Israel. An article on Yahoo! News tells the account in detail, Obama wants to resolve a land dispute fought since the dawn of time by becoming even further involved. We are going to BEGIN by investing an initial 2 Billion dollars overseas. The Jewish homeland is beginning to be dismantled, and we Americans are continuing to display our ignorance in the face of international and domestic affairs. STOP THE INSANITY!
My parents’ families came to America legally; my mother’s side coming in the beginning and colonizing the Western frontier, my father’s side coming through Ellis Island during Russia’s purge of the Jews. They are American citizens, and are recognized as such. The newest issue is with the Mexicans coming across the borders, bringing drugs, crime, and breeding-age people. They are illegal, come here due to the benefits they recieve, and do not contribute to the economy. These illegals are, in fact, being supported by the government due to their large numbers. We could just as easily have illegal Indian people; yet they are educated, and value hard work and the rewards that it reaps. They would contribute to our economy. So why be so benevolent upon the Mexican population and the lack of benefits they bring?
Currently Arizona is having a problem with illegal immigrants, drug traffiking and crime. To solve this, they have created a law that has illegals that are involved with the police ‘investigated’ to see if they are legal. In a recent internet poll, 95.9% of all people to be involved with it AGREE with Arizona’s law. The government doesn’t agree, and is SUING the state for enforcing a law already in place on a federal level. They have also begun prosecuting Arizona and slandering it’s name, placing warnings about how DANGEROUS and VIOLENT it is. Maybe if the federal government stayed away from the state, it wouldn’t be as dangerous……
Immigrants have contributed to our society in the past, as we have become a melting pot of different cultures. They continue to do so, and can also help as globalization spreads even more. Yet we need to maintain our security and border control to protect our economy from those not willing to help us.
