All empires succumb to self-ruination. The American empire is no exception. No one can tell you when and how American military hegemony will end but the best guess is when the money runs out. The U.S. Government has run up more than $30 trillion of debt -- $7 trillion in the last three years alone. Robert Wiedemer will explain the real danger of Fake Money: the impending puncture of our bubble economy based on the Federal Reserve's artificially depressed interest rates. To depress rates and support massive government borrowing, the Fed has increased the money supply by ten times since the 2008 financial crisis.  Bob will explain how this money printing and borrowing didn’t solve the financial crisis and instead simply created a much larger economic bubble that will have far greater consequences when it pops. He wrote the landmark book America’s Bubble Economy in 2006 that predicted the 2008 financial crisis and the massive printing and borrowing that ensued. His bestselling follow-up, Aftershock, provided a game plan for investors looking to avoid future catastrophic losses.   Bob is a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of books on economics and personal finance. His books have sold A million copies.

35] – Marcy, CODEPINK []shouted out Cuba Sí, Biden No! Sign up for a CODEPINK Congress Meeting on Tues., Sept. 6 at 8 PM ET. Join in at Catch the conversation on the politics behind President Biden's continuation of Trump-era policies that persecute Cuba and their implications. Chat with peacemakers and experts.

While President Biden fist-bumps with Saudi autocrats, he continues Trump’s persecution of Cuba, an island nation with a proud revolutionary history. Despite a slight easing of some Trump-imposed restrictions, the White House refuses to lift most of the sanctions, end the blockade or remove Cuba from a state sponsor of terrorism list. Cuba does not sponsor terror; it sponsors global healthcare by sending doctors and nurses all over the world and excelling at medical innovation at home.
