While the west is seemingly eager to once again restart the military escalation, if only in rhetoric for now, surrounding the east-Ukraine conflict, leading to a reportthat the “European Union and the U.S. will weigh further sanctions against Russia’s economy and Ukrainian separatists, after the reported movement of tanks, artillery and combat troops into eastern Ukraine”, Russia has chosen to change track completely and give the US a dose of its own cooking, by bringing the military threat next to the borders of the US itself. “In this situation, we have to maintain a military presence in the western part of the Atlantic and the eastern part of the Arctic Ocean, in the Caribbean and in the Gulf of Mexico” Russian Defense Minister Shoigu said.

Our political-financial system has gone from the dysfunctional to the failed to the surreal. Speculation, once left to individuals and investors, is now federally sponsored, subsidized and institutionalized. When this sham finally buckles and the next shoe falls and rates do eventually rise, the stock market will tank, liquidity will die, and the broader economy will plunge into a worse Depression than before. We are not there yet because of these coordinated moves and the political force behind them. But we are on a precarious path to that inevitability.
Millions of people voted on the issue of Catalonian independence on Sunday, with more than 80 per cent of people electing for a split from Spain in a bid to carve out a new Mediterranean nation.

It’s been a wild week in Washington. So why not?
President Obama joined Willie Nelson and John Fogerty to sing Nelson’s iconic “On The Road Again,” in an event to recognize U.S. troops ahead of Veterans Day.
Nelson and Fogerty performed Thursday before a live audience that included hundreds of service members, as part of the program “A Salute to the Troops: In Performance at the White House.” PBS aired a recording of the event on Friday night, and featured performances by Mary J. Blige, Common, Romeo Santos, and active duty military members. Oh yeah. Willie, John and Obama too.
The full event can be viewed from PBS here. Obama joins in at the 50 minute mark. And then you can rewind it, and watch it again, and again, and again.

Gut-Wrenching Images Show The Brutal Reality Of The Ebola Outbreak In Liberia
Grim news emerged in the battle against Ebola on Friday as the World Health Organization announced that more than 4,000 people have died from the disease since the outbreak began. Most cases were recorded in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone. The U.N. special envoy for Ebola, David Nabarro, explained the number of cases is probably doubling every three-to-four weeks and warned that it will be impossible to quickly combat the disease without mass mobilization of international support.
Photographers John Moore and Mohammed Elshamy have been working on the front lines of the fight against the disease, documenting its brutal effects on patients and their loved ones in West Africa. Their gut-wrenching pictures from the Liberian capital Monrovia reveal the devastating impact of the disease.

Nagbe, a market vendor, collapsed and died outside her home earlier in the morning while leaving to walk to a treatment center, according to her relatives. The burial of loved ones is important in Liberian culture, making the removal of infected bodies for cremation all the more traumatic for surviving family members. (John Moore/Getty Images)

Who can feel confident about the tending of things just now? The diminishing returns of the Information Age are about to bite our collective asses. The sum of all that digital magic is a nation completely incapable of telling itself the truth or acting honorably. Unemployment is down without employment being up. Candy Crush is making the world safe for democracy. We have the finest health care system in the world. ISIS is trying to compete with our homegrown videogame industry for supremacy in porno-violence (actually, I thought we already won that) but now we will obliterate all the bad guys in the world by remote control from the drone bunkers of Las Vegas, and that will show them. Thank goodness the long holiday season is almost upon us to juice the so-called economy ever-higher. There has never been a crazier moment in history.
