RT logoDownload video (36.8 MB)

The collapse of the monetary system awaits the world in the near future, says financial expert James Rickards. Russia and China’s desire to rid the US dollar of its global reserve currency status is an early sign of the “increasingly inevitable” crisis.

As one of the key events in support of his forecast, Rickards points to the words uttered by Russian President Vladimir Putin at the 18th International Economic Forum in St. Petersburg that took place earlier this month.

“Putin said he envisions a Eurasian economic zone involving Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and Russia. The Russian ruble is nowhere near ready to be a global reserve currency, but it could be a regional reserve currency,” he said, as quoted by ETF Daily News.

Laura Bruno – This Is Your Mind On Neptune – Today’s New Moon In Gemini – 28 May 2014


As usual, Emily provides an excellent description of today’s energies. Happy New Moon!

Originally posted on virgo magic:

Today’s New Moon is super-Neptunian – are you feeling it? Sleepy, spacey, weepy, overwhelmed… Honestly, I’m feeling so freakin’ lazy that I just want to refer you to (or plagiarize from) the post I wrote about last year’s Gemini New Moon, because it’s basically the same deal (well, this New Moon is a little different, but last year’s post is still worth reading or re-reading).

John Ward – Universal Suffrage: Are Either The Voters Or The Voted Worth It? – 28 May 2014

JohnWFor your early evening entertainment, several events in today’s news suggesting that universal suffrage may not be such a great idea after all.

Burglar Derek Hardman’s decision to have 40 winks (while robbing two pensioners in the middle of the night) came unstuck when he was still there the next morning. He’s been sent to prison; personally, I’d have had him sent for examination to check that he was fit to stand trial. But in that sense, le dormant Derek is vying with a French camion driver for Dick of the Year, as the latter was caught on Britain’s busiest motorway having a Skype conversation while driving.
