Breaking News: White House: Obama happy over Republicans debt limit offer - with video ~ link
The White House says US President Barack Obama has welcomed an offer by House Speaker John Boehner for a short-term debt limit hike to avert a possible default.

“The president is happy that cooler heads at least seem to be prevailing in the House; that there at least seems to be a recognition that default is not an option," White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters on Thursday.

43 Million people lack food in Europe the Red Cross reports - with video ~ link ~ The Global Banking Cartel families, bringing human misery to this planet for over 200 years!   Stirling  
The Red Cross says that the financial crisis in Europe has left 43 million of its citizens with insufficient food to eat, calling it the worst humanitarian crisis over a half century.

Bekele Geleta, secretary general of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) presented a report in Geneva on Thursday over the impacts of the economic crisis.

The report also showed that some 120 million Europeans face the risk of poverty and many continue to suffer in countries that are in the process of recovering financially.

“People’s lives have been thrown into turmoil and there seems to be a gradual degradation, with millions existing on a day-to-day basis, with no savings and no buffer to withstand any unforeseen expenses,” said Geleta and added, "Europe is facing its worst humanitarian crisis in six decades."

The Red Cross surveyed 22 of its national organizations in Europe and found that the impacts of the euro-crisis have led to more people coming to the humanitarian organization to ask for treatment, financial assistance to buy medications or help fill in forms for benefits.

According to the report, 3.5 million people in Europe are receiving food aid by the Red Cross, which is 75 percent more than three years ago.

But in real terms, that’s precisely the point. The Fed can control the supply of dollars, but it cannot control their value on the foreign exchanges.

The only reason that US QE hasn’t led to a dramatic erosion in the value of the dollar is that every other major economic bloc is up to the same tricks. This makes the rational analysis of international investments virtually impossible.
