Kiev riot police retreat after storming protest bastion ~ link ~ This is a battle between two groups in the Ukraine. However, behind the two political groups is Russia on one side the the globalists/West on the other side. I suspect that Russia will NOT ALLOW the globalists to re-take the Ukraine! Stirling

Russia is returning to the Arctic and “intensifying the development of this promising region” so it needs to “have all the levers for the protection of its security and national interests,” Putin said on Tuesday at an expanded meeting of the Defense Ministry Board.
Just FOUR gunmen carried out the Kenyan mall attack that killed 60 and they escaped alive ~ link ~ At the time, I and many others expressed serious doubts about the 'official line' of what happened. Once again, this was a case that likely involved foreign intelligence (many say Mossad) organizing a False Flag attack on civilians. Stirling
The NYPD believe just four men may have been behind the attack on a Kenyan mall that killed more than 60 civilians in September and they all probably escaped alive.
The report, released on Tuesday, contradicts many of the claims made by Kenyan authorities, who had previously said that as many as 15 attackers were involved, including possible foreign nationals, and that they held hostages.

China money creation blows USA and Japan 'out-of-the-water' ~ link ~ With private sector loan creation in the US and Japan virtually unchanged since Lehman levels (and the US in danger of posting a negative comp in a very months) and Europe loan creation contracting at a record pace, it falls upon the Fed and Bank of Japan (and possibly the ECB soon) to inject the much needed credit-money liquidity into the system. And, as everyone knows, month after month the Fed and the BOJ diligently create $85 billion and $75 billion in new outside money out of thin air (that this "credit" ends up in the stock market is a different topic).
Two-thirds say American Dream Is Over ~ link ~ A stunning 64% of American say the US no longer offers everyone an equal chance of 'getting ahead', according to a new poll by Bloomberg. The widening gap between rich and poor - as we have previously noted as wide as during the roaring 20s - has eroded faith in the American dream. The lack of faith, Bloomberg reports, is especially pronounced among those making less than $50,000 a year with 73% of those saying the economy is unfair. As class warfare is stoked, by none other than the President himself in his recent speech, noting economic trends have “jeopardized middle-class America’s basic bargain, that if you work hard, you have a chance to get ahead," man-of-the-year Pope Francis recently commented, "such an economy kills."
