    The Bizarre, Unanimous Dem Support for the $40b War Package to Raytheon and CIA: "For Ukraine"

    "The US Anti-War Left is Dead. The Squad's $40b War Vote Just Killed It." Many Dems voting YES have long denounced exactly these sorts of bills. Only a few months ago the house progressive leaders argued that there is no military solution out of this crisis. What happened?

    New Warren-Jayapal Bill Takes Aim at Supreme Court 'Corruption'

    With the U.S. Supreme Court at the forefront of the nation's attention as right-wing justices appear ready to overturn Roe v. Wade, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Rep. Pramila Jayapal introduced legislation Tuesday that spotlights the powerful judicial body's complete lack of binding ethics rules—and proposes a number of solutions to tackle the high court's "corruption."

    Ethical Markets w Hazel Henderson

    Markets and money are useful tools that humans have been using for thousands of years. And it was only about 300 years ago with the Industrial Revolution that it was the idea of weaponizing money and markets and making systems of accounting that were predatory on the golden rule societies. And they weaponized money and markets for accumulation and power.

    Did the US really take Russia’s NATO concerns 'very seriously'?

    It is upon us to follow the facts on this next US war and make sure that our representatives do everything in order to stop the escalation. Unfortunately many elected politicians like Rand Paul have done so much damage to their reputation, that when they try to do good, their efforts are neutralized by their partisan posturing.

    Dependence on China shrinks the US economy in Q1

    A leap in America’s trade deficit during the first quarter pushed US GDP down at a 1.4% annual rate, the Commerce Department reported April 28. The consensus forecast called for 1% growth. A massive increase in US imports knocked 3.2% off annualized GDP, reflecting America’s growing dependence on China.

"We never expected that the U.S. would freeze a country's foreign currency reserves one day. And this action has fundamentally undermined national credibility in the international monetary system.

    Putin, Trump, and Le Pen are Cashing In on the Collapse of Neoliberalism

    “Neoliberalism” was the word invented by a small group of utopian economists at a 1938 meeting in France, and it was turned into a movement at a 1947 meeting in Mont Pelerin, Switzerland. They believed that if most government functions and decisions were simply turned over to the most powerful economic players in a country, the marketplace would take care of the rest. This has failed!

    Is the US-Led West Kicking Russia out of SWIFT over Ukraine War Exactly what Putin and Xi Wanted?

    Following the invasion of Ukraine, the US and Europe decided to throw Russia out of the SWIFT banking system. A move that was intended to cripple the Russian economy amid sanctions from the west. However, experts claim Russia and China were in fact waiting for this opportunity to disrupt how oil is traded around the world. In this week's Decode we look at Petrodollars and why is it under threat from Russia?

    While the Biden administration has condemned the Russian invasion of a sovereign, independent Ukraine, it has refused to similarly recognize or support Western Sahara, which has been occupied by Morocco since 1975.

The petrodollar system also allows for US financial markets to be supplied with liquidity and foreign capital inflows through "petrodollar recycling."

    Climate crisis: Amazon rainforest tipping point is looming, data shows

    The Amazon is approaching a tipping point, data shows, after which the rainforest would be lost with “profound” implications for the global climate and biodiversity. Novel statistical analysis shows that more than 75% of the untouched forest has lost stability since the early 2000s, meaning it takes longer to recover after droughts and wildfires.

    The Losing Democrats Who Gobbled Up Money

    This is a fascinating article on the effect of money in political campaigns. According to a study by David Hopkins an associate professor of political science at Boston College found that money is subject to a threshold effect, the point at which money allows a candidate to run a visible campaign that establishes close to 100% name recognition, broadcasts a message, answers the other sides attack ads, and deploys an effective field operation. Once you reach that point the marginal return on additional dollars becomes very small.
