Russia threatened to dump its U.S. treasuries if America imposed sanctions regarding Russia’s action in the Crimea.
Zero Hedge argues that Russia has already done so.
But veteran investor Jim Sinclair argues that Russia has a much scarier financial attack which Russia can use against the U.S.
Specifically, Sinclair says that if Russia accepts payment for oil and gas in any currency other than the dollar – whether it’s gold, the Euro, the Ruble, the Rupee, or anything else – then the U.S. petrodollar system will collapse:
The Birmingham school at the centre of an alleged campaign of “Islamisation” by Muslim radicals is to be placed in “special measures” by the Government’s education watchdog in a move that could see its head teacher and governors removed.
Park View, previously rated “outstanding” by Ofsted, will be downgraded to “inadequate”, the lowest possible score, in the category of leadership and management, senior education sources said.
3. Geert Wilders, unapologetic about comment.
(Funny how no one is asking the South African government to apologize for chanting, ‘kill the white man’ dancing around with machine guns in front of the president. Or asking Zimbabwe to apologize for throwing out all the white farmers with no compensation. Or Saudi Arabia for having two cities where no non-muslims are even allowed to enter at all or practice their religion in any way within the country as a whole. But asking to reduce the number of immigrants who typically belong to a culture that is parasitical and seeks the destruction of the host nation, people and culture in Holland, somehow that warrants extreme contrition and prostrations)
(Two comments. 1. Dearborn is likely a hotbed of anti-democratic activities and 2. Isn’t his family lucky that, at least for the moment, the US is a democratic state with genuine rule of law based on evidence tilted in favor of the defendant and not the sharia shit-hole that they and their co-religionists are trying to create in the USA, where confession is extracted through torture and the sentence is passed by men trained only in koran)
(According to Nina L, our Russian translator, this base is not actually in Crimea and this event is highly problematic and indicative of greater ambitions on the part of Russia. I expect to have more, including a translation of the video this evening)
BELBEK AIR BASE, Crimea (AP) — Ukraine’s armed forces took what may prove to be one of their final stands Saturday in Crimea, as pro-Russian forces stormed and seized control of an air force base amid a barrage of gunfire and explosions.
(Damn ABC for this one. How long till this story becomes a major data-point for Eric Holder to pass more genuinely racist laws against white people?)
The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department’s civil rights arm.
The suspensions – and disparities – begin at the earliest grades.
Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation’s districts with preschools reported suspending at least one preschool child.
