A Japanese court has found the government guilty of negligence causing the Fukushima nuclear disaster and ordered them to pay tens of millions of dollars in compensation to victims, according to reports from Japan.
The shock ruling opens up the prospect of citizens of Pacific nations including the United States of America receiving compensation from the Japanese government for the disaster which contaminated the entire Pacific Ocean and irreperably poisoned the world’s food chain.
The nuclear plant operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co. Holdings, was also found guilty of negligence that led to the disaster that nuclear experts say will likely continue affecting wildlife and humans for the next 250,000 years.
The USDollar has never been in greater danger for losing its dominant position as global reserve currency and payment standard. Challenges to its supremacy are many and with each passing month, more threats are put in place. While the volumes of trade payment in Chinese RMB grow slowly, and the banking reserves in non-USD bonds grow slowly, the risk for the USDollar to be marginalized has increased significantly in the last two to three years.
Basically speaking, a fiat currency run by a corrupt, thieving, and dishonorable hegemonic regime for the sole purpose of exploiting the rest of the world cannot stand the test of time, and will be dismantled.
During a contentious debate on the nature of truth and what is “fake news,” Mike Cernovich told Scott Pelley what story 60 Minutes would publish before the episode had aired. Find an excerpt of this interview below:
Scott Pelley: Who’s gunning for you?
Mike Cernovich: You are. I’m on 60 Minutes. Right?
Scott Pelley: What do you mean, we’re gunning for you?
I am fortunate in having readers who look after me. Some have offered me refuge in their countries and their homes from what they expect otherwise will inevitably be the midnight knock on my door. Others correct my mistakes from typos to content. As I have never considered myself infallible, I carefully read what they have to say.
Usually those who want to straighten me out on a subject are polite and respectful. However, among those corrections brought in by my reporting on the dangers implied by the warming of the poles and melting of the ice were a few not merely ignorant and uninformed, but also condescending and rude. One even accused me of selling out to the climate change hoax in order to buy my way off the lists of Russian agents and fake news purveyors.
Bloomberg writer Danielle DiMartino Booth says the Pension Crisis Too Big for Markets to Ignore.
But I have a question: If the problem is too big to be ignored, why is nearly everyone complacent?
Only a handful of sites including MishTalk, ZeroHedge, and Jack Dean at Pension Tsunami discuss the problem with any frequency.
They have wanted to destroy Belarus for years. Will President Lukashenko’s ego give them their chance?
Every few years Belorussian President Alexander Lukashenko has what seems to be an obligatory dispute with Russia, generally over energy prices. In both the 2004 and 2007 spats, the crisis was amicably solved in short order.
But during each disagreement, Lukashenko tended to purposely exaggerate the nature of the dispute in order to enhance his own personal prestige. It’s all a bit childish, as Russia and Belarus form a Union-State, making Russia and Belarus the two closest fraternal states of both the Commonwealth of Independent States and Eurasian Union.
As markets opened for Asian trading on Sunday evening in the Western time zones, the dollar continued its slide downward following the House’s failure to bring about a healthcare vote to the floor. And with gold moving up nearly $10 in the first couple hours of global trading, it may only be a matter of days or even hours before the dollar falls below, and gold crosses above, their 200 day moving averages.
On Friday the dollar index showed a close for the USD of 99.77, and had already dropped below its 50 and 100 day moving averages earlier in the week. And with Congress appearing to be in a stalemate following the healthcare vote debacle, the markets are not trusting in the legislature to be able to deal with upcoming debt ceiling discussion that is currently ticking down for the government.
