American analysts are taking stock of their country now at year’s end, in hopes that the mistakes of 2019 can be somehow rectified in 2020.
But is there any remedy for the cumulative effects of decades-long missteps that brought on a ballooning debt, a Treasury that no longer finds buyers and is forced to simply print dollars in exponentially increasing amounts, and a military that, as I showed yesterday, is now reduced to mere bluffing in a vain attempt to convince voters that America is becoming great again? And desperate measures in msm, social media and even search engine policies and SEO to keep the public from seeing the obvious? (Russian web sites are now invariably marked as “unsafe” by anti-virus programs, despite the fact that Russia has no motive whatsoever to attack the sites of Russia-friendly Westerners who read their news stories).
