On the eve of a potential vote in the United Nations to formally recognize Palestine we speak with freelance journalist and Palestinian rights activist Eva Bartlett. Bartlett lived in the Gaza Strip for three years between 2008 and 2013. She was also aboard the Dignity, one of five Free Gaza missions to successfully sail to the Strip in 2008.
Bartlett accompanied Palestinians in ambulances during the 2008/2009 Israeli attacks on Gaza, and documented Israel’s violent November 2012 campaign against Palestine from a central Gaza hospital. Bartlett has worked extensively with Gaza’s fishermen and farmers, accompanying them as they come under fire from the Israeli army.
This week James speaks with Dave, an economic and political analyst, webmaster and host of the X22 Report. They discuss potential catastrophic events in coming months, Jade Helm, the increasingly desperate moves of central planners to prop up fiat currencies and related geopolitical developments attached to sustaining the petrodollar, including the assault on Syria. Dave also explains how broader political and economic concerns impact personal finances, and what one can do in terms of preparedness.
He asserts that since 2008 major economic interests have been preparing themselves for further market turmoil, and the present economic paradigm is not feasible past 2016. Presently a struggle is on between China and Russia, and Western central banks that will likely seek to reintroduce similar fiscal programs once a major crisis has been endured.
