  4. With the U.S. preparing to confront China and go to war with North Korea, Russia is an indispensable ally for the U.S. There are huge implications on capital markets as these hegemonic powers continue to edge toward war. Here’s an overview of some of the financial implications of improved relations with Russia… 1: The End of OPEC and the Rise of the Tripartite Alliance On energy, a new producer alliance is being created to replace the old OPEC model. This new alliance will be far more powerful than OPEC ever was because it involves the three largest energy producers in the world — the U.S., Russia, and Saudi Arabia. This Tripartite Alliance is being engineered by former CEO of Exxon and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, with support from Trump, Putin and the new Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammad bin Salman. This alliance is perfectly positioned to enforce both a price cap ($60 per barrel to discourage fracking) and a price floor ($40 per barrel to mitigate the revenue impact on producers). Supply cheating by outsiders, including Iran and Nigeria, can be discouraged by directing order flow to the alliance members, which denies the cheaters of any revenue. As a result, energy will trade in the range described. Traders can profit by buying energy plays when prices are in the low 40s and selling when prices hit the mid-to-high 50s. 2: Improved U.S. Relations with Russia and Sanctions Relief Following Russia’s annexation of Crimea and intervention in eastern Ukraine, President Obama imposed stringent economic sanctions on Russia, its major banks and corporations, and certain political figures and oligarchs. The EU joined these sanctions at the behest of the U.S. Russia responded by imposing its own sanctions on Europe and the U.S. in the form of banning certain imports. The sanctions have been a failure. They have had no impact on Russian behavior at all. Russia still acts freely in Crimea, eastern Ukraine, and in other spheres of influence such as Syria. This failure was predictable. Russian culture thrives on adversity. Russians understand that their culture is distinctly non-western and has its roots in Slavic ethnicity and the Eastern Orthodox religion. The benefits to Europe from sanctions relief would amplify what is already solid growth and monetary policy normalization there. This paints a bullish picture for the euro and the ruble as trade and financial ties expand beginning in 2018. A review of Russia’s place in the world and its prospects would not be complete without an analysis of its monetary policies and positions. Russia’s hard currency and gold foreign exchange reserves have been on a roller coaster ride since mid-2008, just before the panic of 2008 hit full force. Reserves were $600 billion in mid-2008 before falling to $380 billion by early 2009 at the bottom of the global contraction. Reserves then expanded to over $500 billion by mid-2011, and remained in a range between $500 billion and $545 billion until early 2014. Russia’s reserves nosedived beginning in mid-2014 due to the global collapse of oil prices, which fell from $100 per barrel to $24 per barrel by 2016. The Russian reserve position fell to a low of $350 billion by mid-2015, about where they were at the depths of the 2008 crisis. Reserves then began a second recovery in late 2015 and today stand at around $420 billion. This recovery is a tribute to the skill of the head of the Central Bank of Russia, Elvira Nabiuillina, who has twice been honored as the “Central Banker of the Year.” When U.S.-led sanctions prohibited Russian multinationals, such as Gazprom and Rosneft, from refinancing dollar- and euro-denominated debt in western capital markets in 2015, those giant companies turned to Nabiullina. They requested access to Russia’s remaining hard currency reserves to pay off maturing corporate debt. Nabiullina mostly refused their requests and insisted that the reserves were for the benefit of the Russian people and the Russian economy and were not a slush fund for corporations partially controlled by Russian oligarchs. Nabiullina’s hard line forced the Russian energy companies to make alternative arrangements including equity sales, joint ventures, and yuan loans from China (which could be swapped for hard currency) to pay their bills. As a result, Russia’s credit was not impaired and its reserve position gradually recovered. 3: Watch Russia’s “Gold-to-GDP” Ratio Another critical aspect of Russia’s reserve management under Nabiullina is that, even at the height of the oil-related drawdown in mid-2015, the Central Bank of Russia never sold its gold. In fact, it continued expanding its gold reserves. This meant that gold reserves as a percentage of total reserves continued to grow. The Russian reserve position today consists of approximately 17% gold compared to only about 2.5% for China. (The U.S. has about 70% of its foreign exchange reserves in gold; a surprisingly high percentage to most observers who never hear any positive remarks about gold from U.S. Treasury or Federal Reserve officials). More important as a measure of Russia’s gold power are gold reserves as a percentage of GDP. If we take GDP as a metric for the economy, and gold as a metric for real money, then the gold-to-GDP ratio tells us how much real money is supporting the real economy. It is the inverse of leverage through government debt. For the United States, that ratio is 1.8%. For China the ratio is estimated at 1.5% (China’s ratio is an estimate because China is non-transparent about the amount of gold in its reserves. The actual ratio is likely in a range of 1% to 3%). For Russia, the gold-to-GDP ratio is a whopping 5.6%, or three times the U.S. ratio. The only other economic power that comes close to Russia is the Eurozone. It consists of the 19 nations that use the euro and they collectively have just over 10,000 metric tonnes of gold. The gold-to-GDP ratio for the Eurozone is 3.6%; not as high as Russia, but double the U.S. ratio. On the whole, Russia is the strongest gold power in the world. Russia is one of the five largest gold producers in the world. Currently Russian gold mining output is sold on the open market and the Russia central bank buys gold for its reserves on the open market. This stands in contrast to the situation in China, the world’s largest gold producer, where gold exports are banned, and are partly diverted to government reserves at below market prices. However, Russia could easily flip to the China model in a financial crisis. This would rapidly increase Russian gold reserves at low cost, while drastically reducing global physical supply. Russia and China are well-positioned to execute the greatest gold short squeeze in history. Of course, they have no interest is doing so right now because both are still buyers who favor low prices. At some point, they will flip to hoarders who favor high prices, but not yet. Russia’s strong gold position combined with a very low amount of external debt leaves Russia in the best position to withstand economic distress without default or a funding crisis in the future. This is one reason U.S. economic sanctions have been relatively ineffective at hurting the Russian economy despite a slowdown and recent recession. This trend in gold as a percentage of total reserves is highly revealing. It is part of a long-term effort by Russia and China (among others) to abandon the dollar-based international monetary system. They’d prefer a system less congenial to the United States and more accommodating to rising gold powers such as Russia, and rising geopolitical powers such as China. Gold is not the only factor in the Russian plan to abandon the dollar-based system. Russia has actively promoted the ruble (RUB) as a regional reserve currency. The ruble has no prospect of becoming an international reserve currency for decades, if ever. Yet it is in wider use in bilateral trading payments in eastern Europe and central Asia where Russia is trying to reestablish local economic hegemony along the lines of the former Soviet empire. 4: Russian Relations and Blockchain Technology Will Challenge U.S. Dollar Dominance Russia is also exploring the use of blockchain technology and crypto-currencies as a medium of exchange and as a payments platform. Recently, Putin met with Vitalik Buterin, the inventor of crypto-currency ethereum. Buterin was born in Kolomna, Russia and was able to converse casually with Putin in their native Russian language. Here’s how Bloomberg reported the meeting on June 6, 2017: Left unsaid in this report is the fact that the blockchain technology on which ethereum is based has unbreakable encryption. Its message traffic is routed through an infinite number of internet pathways that the U.S. cannot interdict. Any blockchain-based payment system offers a way to run a global payments system independent of existing systems controlled by the U.S. such as FedWire and SWIFT. Bitcoin and ether boosters were quick to shout about the Putin-Buterin meeting as evidence of Russian support for bitcoin or ether. That’s not exactly right. Putin’s interest is in the blockchain technology, not any particular crypto-currency. With the right technology platform, Russia could launch its own crypto-currency. This could be a digital-RUB or a jointly issued currency with China and other members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. Whichever platform or direction Russia chooses, they all point in the same direction — the displacement of the dollar as a dominant transaction and reserve currency, and the creation of payments systems that the U.S. cannot sanction. This project will continue on a gradual basis in the years ahead and then suddenly be unleashed in the equivalent a gold and digital Pearl Harbor sneak attack on the dollar. What Does This All Add Up To? Absent the phony scandals that have impeded the Russian–U.S. relationship for the past eight months, a substantial improvement in that relationship would have occurred already. As it is, the relationship will improve either because the scandals abate or because Trump pushes the relationship forward despite the scandals. This is a simple matter of balance-of-power politics. With the U.S. preparing to confront China and go to war with North Korea, Russia is an indispensable ally-of-convenience for the U.S. This emerging U.S.–Russia condominium has implications far beyond China, including common interests in Syria, energy markets, and toward sanctions relief. Notwithstanding the prospect of improved relations, Putin remains the geopolitical chess master he has always been. His long game involves the accumulation of gold, development of alternative payments systems, and ultimate demise of the dollar as the dominant global reserve currency. It is up to the United States to defend that monetary ground. However, the likelihood of that is low because the U.S. does not even perceive the problem it’s facing, let alone the solution. This evolving state of affairs creates enormous opportunities in the months and years ahead. LINK

  9. Exclusive: Russian Bank Docs Show How Putin Laundered Money to Hillarious & Podesta Now we know why Clinton & Co. were so desperate to frame Trump with ties to Putin Jerome R. Corsi | Infowars.com - February 21, 2017 669 Comments Image Credits: Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call, Justin Sullivan/Getty Images. 45 20 Today Infowars investigative journalist Jerome Corsi met with former vice-head of Armed Services Committee and the House Homeland Security Committee, Curt Weldon, to discuss his committees’ deep research into the Clinton technology transfers to Russia in exchange for Clinton Foundation donations. Weldon validated much that is presented in the following article, which is part one of a series of investigative articles coming out over the upcoming week based on intel by Weldon and other sources: WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congress may want to examine concrete evidence showing Russian President Vladimir Putin paying Hillarious Clinton and John Podesta for a long time before the mainstream media goes even more overboard trying to fabricate a tie between Putin and President Donald Trump. The money trail hunt begins with a document Infowars has obtained from the Russian Central Bank “Registry of Significant Control,” known generally as the “RSC Registry.” This document traces the ownership of Metcombank, a relatively small Russian-domiciled bank located in the Russian Ural Mountains, to ownership by Viktor Vekselberg, a Russian billionaire with close ties to Putin. As we shall see this document provides evidence of the circuitous path the Russian government has been using since Hillarious Clinton was secretary of state to make large financial payments to John Podesta and to the Clinton Foundation. Be sure to keep referring to this document to cross-check as you continue reading the article below. As the RSC Registry makes clear, Vekselberg has been paying Clinton and Podesta through a complicated money laundering scheme involving Metcombank in Russia, with payments tracing back to the Renova Group, a Russian-based energy and investment international conglomerate also owned by Vekselberg. A March 1, 2013 article from Russian media in which Vekselberg confirmed the questionable bank deposits. The funds rediverted to Clinton and Podesta through the Renova Group and Metcombank originate in large part from Rusnano — a state-owned investment fund owned by the Russian government. Conveniently, Vekselberg is a board member for Renova. A NYT article from April 23, 2015 revealing how Clinton made military transfers to Russia. The entire scheme involves a Netherlands-listed private company that plays prominently into the international money laundering the Russian government has been conducting through offshore entities in the Cayman Islands, as documented by the Panama Papers. Money laundering schemes created by professional criminals are typically complicated. To begin understanding the RSC registry on Metcombank, note that the bottom box on the chart (second page) makes clear that Vekselberg effectively owns 100 percent of Metcombank. First, the simple part. Metcombank appears to be the bank Vekselberg has used to make transfers to the Clinton Foundation, with the money flowing first through the Moscow branch of Metcombank, and from there into Deutsche Bank and Trust Company Americas in New York City, finally ending up in a private bank account in the Bank of America that is operated by the Clinton Foundation. How Putin paid Podesta is more complicated. John Podesta, the campaign chairman of former Secretary of State Hillarious Clinton during her 2016 presidential run. Podesta has deep ties to Russia despite blaming President Trump of the same. The complication begins when we examine the RSC Registry and realize that Vekselberg owns Metcombank through a series of intermediary companies, starting with the Renova Group, a Russian corporate conglomerate with interests in oil, energy, and telecommunication that lists Vekselberg as chairman of the board. The Renova Group owns and operates Renova Assets Ltd., a private investment company headquartered in the Bahamas for which Bloomberg lists no key executives, board members, or members of the executive committee. Conveniently, Vekselberg also has ties to Rusnano, the Russian State Investment Fund, via his ownership and management of the Renova Group in Russia. In 2011, Vekselberg directed Rusnano to make a $35 million investment into Joule Unlimited, a small Massachusetts-based energy company, owned by Joule Global Holdings, N.V., in the Netherlands, with Joule Global Stichting, the ultimate controlling entity. The Rusnano investment into Joule Unlimited was made when then-Secretary of State Hillarious Clinton spearheaded the transfer of U.S. advanced technology to Russia, some with military uses, as part of her “reset” strategy with the country. As previously reported, in the summer of 2011, while he was advising then-Secretary Clinton on State Department policy, John Podesta joined the board of three Joule entities: Joule Unlimited, a small Massachusetts-based energy company; its holding company, Joule Global Holdings, N.V., which was based in the Netherlands; and Joule Global Stichting, which appears to be the ultimate controlling entity. Podesta, it turns out, has been paid an undisclosed amount, starting in 2011, for serving on the executive board of Joule Unlimited that he neglected to report to regulatory authorities in the U.S., as well consulting fees from the Wyss Foundation, a group controlled by Swiss billionaire Hansjörg Wyss, an investor in Joule Energy. In an Aug. 2016 report entitled “From Russia with Money,” the Government Accountability Institute noted that Podesta consulted for a foundation run by one of the investors in Joule Energy, Hansjörg Wyss, who in turn was a major Clinton Foundation donor. Podesta was evidently paid $87,000 by the Wyss Foundation in 2013, according to federal tax records. The GAI report also documented the Wyss Charitable Foundation has given between $1 million to $5 million to the Clinton Foundation. Joule Global Stichting was established in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on March 14, 2011. John Podesta joined the Joule Global Stichting’s executive board on June 25, 2011. The Joule Global Stichting is a foundation, but it’s not strictly a foundation in the charitable sense. A foundation of this type, a Dutch stichting, is a popular means for reducing one’s tax burden, as noted on the website of the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, which is at the heart of the Panama Papers investigation into offshore banking and money-laundering operations as archived and released by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. The Government Accountability Institute concluded that although Podesta is listed on the corporate records, he failed to disclose his membership on the board of Joule Global Stichting in his federal financial disclosure forms when he joined the Obama White House as a senior advisor. To complete the circle, Vekselberg, the Renova Group, the Skolkovo Foundation, and Hansjörg Wyss all have ties to the Clinton Foundation, either as substantial donors or as participants in the Clinton Global Initiative. Joule Global Stichting and Joule Global Holdings, N.V., also figure prominently as a client of Mossack Fonseca.

  12. (CNN)ISIS on Thursday purportedly released a video and audio statement threatening to attack Russia "very soon." In the nearly five-minute long video, a chant in Russian is heard over visual compilations of old ISIS propaganda and generic video of Russian cities and buildings. The video is entitled "Soon Very Soon the Blood Will Spill like an Ocean" and was posted two weeks after a Russian commercial jet crashed in Egypt, killing 224 people. An ISIS affiliate has claimed it brought down the plane. CNN has not independently verified the video is authentic, but it was posted on ISIS-affiliated social media accounts. Russian security services are working to verify the authenticity of the video, the country's state news agency Sputnik reports. Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told reporters in Moscow: "I've read news about this video, but have not seen it myself. I don't know the authenticity of this video, and I don't know the authenticity of these sources. "But in any case I'm sure this material will be subject of scrutiny by our special services." Opinion: What Putin is doing in the Middle East Russian air power has backed the Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad's military in its fight against ISIS since October 1. While Russian officials have said their airstrikes target ISIS, U.S. officials have said some have not been in areas where the terror group is operating. Russia has no wish to see Syria become a radical Islamist state or a long-term safe haven for terror groups, with possible consequences for its own Muslim regions in the Caucasus. It is "also concerned about the possible return to Russia of the 2,000 or more Russian-speakers currently fighting against Assad's forces," Nikolay Kozhanov of the Carnegie Moscow Center said last month. ISIS has threatened Russia before, even prior to Moscow's military support in Syria. http://www.cnn.com/2015/11/12/middleeast/isis-russia-threat/index.html
  13. By Taku Dzimwasha | International Business Times – 7 hours ago A Russian air force jet has been shot down by Turkish forces after it strayed into the country's airspace, according to unconfirmed reports. Eyewitnesses reported a large explosion in Huraytan, northern Syria, as three fighter jets were sighted flying overhead, the Express said. A Turkish-based journalist tweeted that three Turkish planes were responding after radar locked on to some "mysterious" MiG-29 jets, which are a similiar model to those used by Russian forces. The news comes after Turkey scrambled F-16 fighter jets last weekend after a Russian MiG-29 crossed into Turkish territory near the town of Yayladagi, in Hatay province, close to the border with Syria. Turkish jets then escorted the Russian aircraft back into Syrian airspace. Turkey's prime minister Ahmet Davutoglu has accused Russia of escalating the conflict in Syria, and he claimed that Moscow admitted its warplanes had violated his country's airspace by mistake. Russia's ambassador in Turkey was also summoned in protest at the provocative action. Russia has been leading a unilateral bombing campaign in Syria after Russian president Vladimir Putindeclared war on Islamic State (Isis). Coalition forces led by the US have accused Russia of only entering the conflict to prop up Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad. Turkish officials have warned Moscow would be held "responsible for any undesired incident" that may occur in the future. Both the Turkish and Russian consulate were unavailable to comment at the time of writing. Tensions between Russia and the West have been heightened since the conflict in eastern Ukraine, where Moscow is accused of backing the armed rebels in that country. It was thought that relationships had thawed somewhat after Putin met US president Barack Obama this month and said that he planned on taking on IS. However, Russian forces have been targeting US-backed rebel groups, contrary to US goals. https://uk.news.yahoo.com/russian-jet-shot-down-turkish-161036631.html#yiPyI2f
  14. By Barbara Starr and Jeremy Diamond, CNN Updated 4:24 PM ET, Thu October 8, 2015 Washington (CNN)A number of cruise missiles launched from a Russian ship and aimed at targets in Syria have crashed in Iran, two U.S. officials told CNN Thursday. Monitoring by U.S. military and intelligence assets has concluded that at least four missiles crashed as they flew over Iran. The U.S. believes, based on intelligence reports of damage assessments, that some buildings were damaged and civilians may have been hurt. It's unclear where in Iran the missiles landed. The Russian ships have been positioned in the south Caspian Sea, meaning the likely flight path for missiles into Syria would cross over both Iran and Iraq. The Russians have been firing a relatively new cruise missile called "Kaliber," using it for the first time in combat. READ: U.S. aircraft diverted to avoid Russian fighter in Syria The Russian Defense Ministry, however, took strong issue with the CNN report in a posting on Facebook Thursday. "Unlike CNN, we don't report quoting anonymous sources, but we show launches of our missiles and the targets they hit in real-time mode," the statement reads, noting that Russian drones are operating in Syria around the clock, presumably monitoring operations. It continues, "No matter how unpleasant and unexpected it is for our colleagues in the Pentagon and Langley, our strike yesterday with precision-guided weapons at ISIS infrastructure in Syria hit its targets." In response, one U.S. official familiar with the intelligence reports told CNN, "These are the people who told us there were no little green men in Crimea." The official was referring to Moscow's denials that men wearing green fatigues and using Russian weapons to fight the Ukraine government -- often dubbed "little green men" -- were in fact Russian soldiers. Moscow later annexed Crimea. Iran's semi-official FARS news agency also said that Iranian authorities also haven't confirmed the U.S. officials' information at this point. On Wednesday, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu told President Vladimir Putin on Russian television that all 26 missiles launched from four missile ships struck their targets, with no civilian facilities hit. Putin then congratulated him on the performance of the weapons. It was not clear whether Shoigu was referring to the same missiles as the U.S. officials, as the latter may have been describing ones launched after the TV appearance. The assessment came as Defense Secretary Ashton Carter warned Thursday at NATO headquarters in Brussels that Russia would likely suffer casualties "within the coming days" as it deepens its military involvement in Syria. Carter also took rhetorical aim at Moscow Thursday, calling out Russia for "increasingly unprofessional behavior" after a Russian fighter jet violated Turkish airspace earlier this week and after Russia launched missiles into Syria from the Caspian Sea "without warning." While Carter again pointed to the need for an agreement on "professional safety procedures" to avoid accidents in Syrian skies between Russian and U.S.-led sorties, which are taking aim at ISIS, he stressed that the U.S. would not cooperate militarily at a strategic level with Russia. "We have not and will not agree to cooperate with Russia so long as they continue to pursue this misguided strategy," he said earlier in the week. "It remains our hope that Russia will see that tethering itself to a sinking ship is a losing strategy because Russia has the opportunity to change course and do the right thing. I don't know if they will." In Rome earlier in his trip, Carter described to a "tragically flawed" Russian strategy in Syria, where Russian military actions appear increasingly aimed at bolstering the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad in his struggle against rebel forces and less at fighting ISIS. READ: Obama: Russia heading for 'quagmire' in Syria U.S. and Russian military officials have yet to establish a reliable communication channel to avoid potentially tragic accidents between Russian and U.S.-led forces operating in Syrian airspace. State Department spokesman John Kirby declined to confirm that the Russian missiles had landed in Iran when asked about them at the daily press briefing Thursday, but he did say that such an incident would point to the need for better coordination. "If something like that happened, again, I can't confirm it, but I think it points all the more towards the need to have proper de-confliction procedures in place," he said. The U.S. and Russia did hold a high-level phone call Thursday. Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov spokes for about half an hour about Syria and Ukraine, according to Kirby. Kerry reiterated U.S. concerns about the high number of non-ISIS targets that Russia has struck, he said. "They also talked about the importance of moving forward on tactical discussions and dialogue towards the goal of de-confliction, again to avoid mishaps and misunderstandings, particularly in the air." Kerry also emphasized the need for a political solution to the civil war in Syria, which he said required a transitional government to move away from Assad. Separately, a U.S. defense official told CNN that there have been at least two incidents in which Russian fighter jets flew in close proximity to U.S. drones. The first incident was not believed to be deliberate. However, the U.S. assessment is that the second encounter was a deliberate attempt to shadow the unmanned aircraft. Unlike the recent encounters with manned U.S. fighter jets, the drones did not turn away, since no pilots were at risk. http://www.cnn.com/2015/10/08/politics/russian-missiles-syria-landed-iran/index.html
  15. Every time I turn around China & Russia are in the news - lots of News about what China is doing -- I think we are suppose to pay close attention to what China & Russia are doing with emphasis on gold - Just this past week I listened to 2 lengthy interviews with 2 men who were putting major emphasis on China & Russia -- They are extremely knowledgeable about currency , economy, politics and how it all plays out affecting us globally!! They both said to watch what they do!! I think China & Germany are still steaming mad that the US will not give them back their gold - China Plays Game of Chicken with the US 0 China 4:44 PM China is not going to wait until the West (Anglo NWO aggressors plus coward European vassals) has managed to destroy Putin-Russia (via internal destabilization/Maidanization), because it knows it would be next. This explains the incident that occurred last week: “WASHINGTON — A Chinese fighter jet flew within 30 feet of a Navy surveillance and reconnaissance plane this week in international airspace just off the Chinese coast, the Pentagon said Friday. The encounter, known as an intercept, was “very, very close, very dangerous,” said Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary. The Pentagon filed a diplomatic complaint with the People’s Liberation Army on Friday morning, Defense Department officials said. As of Friday afternoon, it had not received a reply. The episode, which occurred on Tuesday, began with the Chinese warplane flying closely underneath the Navy’s P-8 Poseidon. It then moved parallel to the naval plane, with the wingtips of the two aircraft separated by less than 30 feet. As a final maneuver, the Chinese fighter executed a barrel roll, apparently to show off its weapons payload to the American pilot. A barrel roll is just as it sounds: A fighter jet rolls over and then levels out. Admiral Kirby called it an aggressive move.” [nytimes.com] – Pentagon Says Chinese Fighter Jet Confronted American Navy Plane You could of course ask what business the ‘indispensable nation’ had flying so provocatively near the Chinese coast. As we speak the following focal points undermine American hegemony: China, with an economy that will surpass that of the US this year (according to the Worldbank), has announced it intends to ‘de-dollarize‘ the world Russia is resisting the western power grab in Ukraine and will probably manage to make its influence in Ukraine felt again Jihadists are busy taking over the Middle East, enabled by the Clean Break/PNAC folly of the nineties, letting the Jihadist genie out of the bottle, leading straight into a Caliphate, probably run by Turkey. The US centric financial system around the dollar reserve currency facescollapse European nationalism is on the rise, with a positive view of Russia anddistrust towards America The recent Ferguson stand-off, flash robs, ‘game of knock-out‘ has shown that ethnic tensions are high and could explode and will explode once the US financial system will collapse There is an Euro-American constitutionalist undercurrent in US society that resents the way their country is developing. The globalist elite is completely unwilling to preserve the Euro-American character of the US, this new school year whites will be a minority for the first time and at some point a revolt can be expected from the Euro-Americans, just like happened anywhere else in the world where huge demographic changes occurred. Militarily the US are a paper tiger and the rest of the world knows it. Yes, it can create a lot of ‘shock and awe’ initially, but the US military has no staying power. In WW2 they showed up when the war was almost over and had to rely heavily on their senior Soviet ally, who did almost all the work. They were beaten by the tiny nation of North-Vietnam (ca. 20 million, China has 1300 million). And although sold as a victory, insiders know that effectively the US was thrown out of Iraq and did not accomplish anything other than handing over the country to the Iranian sphere of influence for free (for the Iranians that is, not the Americans) There is the 9/11 Sword of Damocles that won’t go away and has the potential of wiping out the entire US political class once a breakthroughcould be achieved What is a developing now for the US is a ‘convergence of catastrophes': potential wars with Russia, China and Jihadists at the same time, losing Europe as an ally, that will switch to Russia, losing reserve currency status of the dollar so the US can no longer pay for its imports, causing permanent ‘flash mobs‘ with strong ethnic undertones, which will prompt the ‘red states‘ to attempt to secede, which Washington will try to prevent. That will be the moment for a combined European-Russian military intervention in America, a repetition of what happened when The French and Dutch intervened in America in 1776 and made the decisive difference in achieving American independence from the British. This time it is neocon/AIPAC/NSA-Washington that constitutionalist red state America needs to be liberated from. [source] The American Bogdan Milošević/Lech Walesa? The scenario will be in perfect symmetry with what is happening in Donbass/Ukraine today: a few red states declaring independence and seceding from Washington, the latter not accepting this development and mobilizes against it and civil war will be the result. This will be the moment for Greater Europe/the North to support the secessionists, first with weapon deliveries via French Canada, Mexico or, like in 1776, via the Caribbean, later with mercenaries. After all, if in the thirties 150 million Anglos could generate thousands of mercenaries to fight in Spain on the side of Stalin against Spanish Catholic nationalists, 700 million Europeans can be expected to generate a multiple of that number to prevent AIPAC-Washington from consolidating its power and establish a USSR-2.0 and ally itself with China against Greater Europe, similar to what Roosevelt America did in the thirties vis-a-vis the USSR.

Harvey Organ- By December Whole Thing Going to Collapse Preview by Yahoo SEPTEMBER 25, 2014 Here is some good information, to help you know what to expect when the switch is made to our new and governmental systems. -LW Sep 24, 2014I have written for many years that the “kings of the east” in Revelation 16:12 prophesy of China and Russia overthrowing Mystery Babylon today. John says it would take “seven bowls” of judgment-wine poured out over Babylon the city’s overthrow. Revelation 16:12 describes the sixth bowl of wine directed at Babylon, and John’s description shows us that these “kings” are comparable to the Medes and Persians, who overthrew Babylon in 537 B.C. The Medes and Persians dried up the Euphrates River in order to walk into Babylon on dry (shallow) ground. This was in Isaiah 44:27. King Belshazzar of Babylon was killed, Darius the Mede established himself as the new king. Shortly afterward, when Cyrus the Persian came to town, he issued a directive that allowed the people of Judah to return to their old land. In other words, the coming of the “kings of the east” is not a bad thing, but is the way in which God is setting His people free. Unfortunately, most modern eschatological teaching sees these “kings” as enemies of God. They speak of a 200-million man army coming from China to invade the land of Israel, instead of seeing it as an army that overthrows Babylon and sets the people free. I’m not a military man, but even I can see that if such an army began marching west from China heading toward Israel, it would take only one or two nukes to destroy them all. The advent of the nuclear age after World War II made large-scale invasions nearly impossible, because concentrated armies or fleets are so vulnerable today. A simple look at history and the prophecies of Isaiah 44, 45 show the fallacy of the belief that the kings of the east are the bad guys. King Cyrus of Persia is called a “messiah” in Isaiah 45:1, the one that God anointed to overthrow Babylon. King Darius, his chief ally from Medea, was not mentioned directly by Isaiah, but he organized the new kingdom into 120 provinces and installed Daniel as the chief of three governors. This was a type of the being organized, having an outpouring of the Spirit (120) and being ruled by the saints of the Most High (Daniel 7:22). So Revelation 16:12 speaks of the seventh bowl of divine judgment being poured out upon Babylon, and “the kings of the east” are said to do this. It is a latter-day prophecy taken directly from the of Cyrus and Darius, who overthrew Babylon. The modern nations fulfilling these roles are China and Russia. These are the nations that God has anointed to bring down Babylon in our time. They are not the bad guys. The bad guys are the ones who control the Western media, attempting to demonize Russia and China. It is a propaganda war to gain the support of as many people as possible and to justify their plans to destroy much of the world. The ten principles on the Georgia Guide Stones sets forth their agenda. The first principle is: “Maintain Humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.” http://www.thegeorgiaguidestones.com/message.htm They conveniently neglect telling us how this will be accomplished. It is clear from their actions and statements that they plan to kill about 7 billion people in the name of saving the environment. They are already doing this by creating conflict and war, aborting the unborn children, and creating ill health by disease, toxic substances, and unhealthy food. This is the Babylonian agenda. Since China has the most to lose insofar as population is concerned, they are not going along with this plan of destruction. And Russia has sided with them, as have all the BRICS nations. This rising coalition is the natural enemy of Mystery Babylon. The Glaziev Directive Sergei Glaziev (or Glazyev) is one of Russian President Putin’s advisors. On June 10, 2014 he issued a statement that was of historic importance. This was reported later in an article entitled The Lost Interview, by Jeff Yastine, who is the head of the Financial Intelligence Report. (I used to watch Jeff on Nightly Business Report.) The Lost Interview is where Jeff Yastine interviewed Jim Rickards, a former CIA analyst who wrote a book entitled The Death of Money. The full interview can be read here: https://w3.newsmax.com/LP/Finance/FIR/FIR-Collapse?dkt_nbr=qeo9ocnz In this long interview, Jim Rickards tells us that after the Twin Towers demolition, the CIA noticed that the unnamed “terrorist” had placed bets that the airline stock prices would go down. Whoever did this made a lot of money when it happened. In other words, someone with a lot of money knew about the Twin Towers disaster before it happened, and they positioned themselves to make money on it. Rickards does not even give a hint to tell us who had done this, although it seems to me that all such financial transactions are recorded somewhere, and the CIA should have no problem finding out who did this. If the Twin Towers had been destroyed by the media’s scapegoats, no doubt he would have told us, for he would have no reason to hide it. Keeping it a secret, however, reveals the truth with the sounds of silence. No matter. The point is that the CIA and Pentagon began tracking financial anomalies as indicators of soon-coming “terrorist” events. Rickards said, The main purpose of the attack on 911, he says, was to kill people, but the more damaging effect was to collapse the economy. Are we to believe, then, that al-Quaeda terrorists not only planned the attacks but also bought millions of dollars worth of options on the stock market in order to profit from the collapse of airline stocks?? “The agency believed that terrorists were trading in airline stocks before the run up to the terrorist attack… “We found clear evidence that someone knew the attacks were about to happen. Without getting too technical, the terrorists were using the options markets to make big bets that airline stocks would tank.” Collapsing America By discovering the large purchase of options against the airline stocks, He says that the CIA came to understand the absolute vulnerability of Europe and America. They had “irrefutable evidence that that shows this collapse is imminent and could happen at any time.” “In fact, when the Pentagon got wind of the shocking discoveries he made while working on a top-secret project for the CIA, they quickly militarized his findings in preparation for the financial chaos to come.” He explains how America has seen three economic collapses in the past century: 1914, 1939, and 1971. Those crises came before the banks and economies of the world were tied together. He uses the metaphor of ships at sea. If one goes down in a storm, the others may survive. But if they are all tied together, and one goes down, they all go down. In other words, the next great financial crisis in any sizable nation will take down the rest of the world with it. The BRICS Alliance Turning to a more recent group of nations that is taking steps to bring down the Western banking system, He shows how the BRICS alliance (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) is positioning itself outside of the Western system and is setting up its own counterpart to the IMF in order to survive the coming collapse in finances and in trade. Rickards describes the plan as coming in TWO STEPS. “Their first step was outlined on June 10, under the Glaziev Directive. A directive that spells out the first punch that will knock the U.S. economy to the mat. And while this first hit will shake the foundation of our financial system to the core, it’s the second punch that will deal a deathblow to American wealth and everything you hold dear.” He continues later, saying, “Pen was finally put to paper on June 10, when Vladimir Putin’s economic advisor, Sergey Glaziev, published a bold directive where he outlined the rationale behind an international alliance of countries [the BRICS] that were ready to get rid of the dollar for international trade and also to stop using it as their reserve currency. “And taking it one step further, Elvira Nabiullina, the governor of the Russian central bank, recently stated that Russia is in discussions with China and their BRICS partners regarding the establishment of a new system for multilateral trade. “It will allow the transfer of resources from one country to another, as needed, so each member can start directing their currency reserves away from the dollar and to the new system.” In other words, the BRICS nations will trade among themselves using their own currencies, instead of using the US dollar to pay each other when goods are traded. This shift began after 911 and is a direct consequence of 911. He forgets to mention that the BRICS nations have every right to set up their own system, especially since the past system put an economic strangle hold on everyone else while refusing to exercise proper fiscal responsibility. In other words, the old system was broken and needed replacement. The Consequences of 911 In the 1920’s and 1930’s they (and many nations) sent gold to the Federal Reserve Bank for safe-keeping, knowing that there was soon coming a war with Japan. These gold shipments were not gifts, but loans, and so they received interest-bearing receipts for them. These bonds for the gold-loans came due at various times, but perhaps the most important were the 60-year loans in 1938 that came due in 1998. When the Fed bankers balked at paying back the loans, the Dragon families sued them in the World Court, winning their case. The Federal Reserve Bank was given a deadline to pay their debt by September 12, 2001. The day before the debt was to be paid, all the records were lost in the Twin Towers demolition. The records were held in the offices of the Cantor Fitzgerald law firm, which one of the planes hit directly, killing their entire staff and destroying all their records. The gold under the Tower was secretly stolen and shipped away to a more secure, secret location, probably in Paraguay. There is little doubt that the same people who had purchased the “put options” against the airline stocks were the same ones who had refused to pay their debts to the Dragon family. The Dragon family then experienced a “reality check,” seeing clearly that these bankers had no respect for the law. They were ruthless and were willing to kill thousands of their own people (Americans) and even to start a world war rather than pay their debt or give up power.A new approach was needed, one that was slower. The BRICS Alliance The foreign ministers began meeting in 2006, and a full-scale diplomatic meeting was held in Russia in 2008. It started out with just four nations (BRIC), but when South Africa joined them in 2010, it became the BRICS alliance. On July 15, 2014 they set up the BRICS Development Bank as an alternative to the IMF. This came 70 years after the US Dollar had been crowned king at the Bretton Woods Convention in July 1944. The Glaziev Directive on June 10 stated the official policy for the BRICS nations. Rickards says this Directive reveals a two-step policy to success in establishing the alternate economic system. Its success, of course, will have a side effect of destroying the old system. Rickards of this, “This is step one in a coordinated effort to unseat the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency. But what’s even worse is step two. Through my market intelligence sources, we now see that the major governments, including the United States, the Eurozone, and China are allowing a covert redistribution of gold so the entire system can be reset—a preplanned, global reset of the value of money… “It’s conspiratorial in that the governments involved don’t want others to know what they’re doing. In truth, it’s just a pragmatic way to stabilize the monetary system globally, and prepare the major parties for a global reset of the value of money. A reset that will save the system, but unfortunately, as I mentioned earlier, millions of people are going to have everything they own virtually wiped out overnight.” Rickards seems to admit here that this new BRICS plan is designed to “save the system,” not that it will save the old Bretton Woods plan, but that it will set forth a new plan that will save the world from the collapse of fiat currencies and world trade in general. We see, then, that the second step will be the actual Global Currency Reset, which I have written about for some years now. China’s accumulation of gold has been a very poorly kept secret. I am not sure why Rickards thinks it is a secret. His point is that those who are holding paper currency and paper contracts when this Reset hits are going to find that their money has lost most of its value. Only those who are holding tangible assets (such as gold or silver) will benefit by this Reset. Those who have the most to lose are those with retirement funds or money in the bank or currency under the mattress. Such currency used to be “as good as gold,” until 1971 when President Nixon made it “as good as the faith and credit of the United States.” However, since that time, with the astronomical amounts of new money being created out of nothing, that “faith and credit” has been severely eroded, and many nations are now very nervous about holding US dollars. All it will take is for one nation to scream “Fire!” for the whole world to start bolting toward the door to get out of US dollars. That will be the end of Babylonian world history. The power of Babylon is bound up in the value and quantity of its money. Rickards’ Perspective In reading this interview, it is clear that Jim Rickards is coming from the perspective that US hegemony (dominance) in the world is the preferred world order. In his view, what the BRICS alliance is doing is “bad.” He has been working against the BRICS alliance in the CIA, hoping to slow down the demise of the US dollar. But in a broader view, every country ought to be as “sovereign” as they claim to be in public. Nations should not be forced (or bribed) into any policy that is detrimental to its own well-being. However, we have to live in “the real world,” where national sovereignty is a myth for most nations. Hegemony is the reality. Wars are really just turf wars fought by gangs of nations seeking more power and dominance. The people (and individual soldiers) are the greatest victims. After World War II, much of the world lay devastated, while the US came out relatively unscathed. That is why the US dollar was crowned king in 1944. That is how US hegemony became entrenched. But the world has now rebuilt itself, and new nations are emerging with strong economies and militaries. US hegemony is being challenged. The BRICS alliance has banded together to challenge that hegemony and to form a new economic alliance without being tethered to its former master—the US dollar. Those nations have every right to buy as much gold as they wish. And here is where it appears as if the US and China have a common goal. In order for the US to maintain the value of its dollar, it must manipulate the value of gold lower and lower, because all value is relative. A low gold price means a high value for the dollar. At the same time, China is buying gold at those low, low bargain prices, because the new system that is coming will see money that is backed by real assets such as gold. In other words, the manipulation going on in the West by the price-fixing banks is playing into the hands of the BRICS nations, especially to China and India. The longer this goes on, the more gold they will accumulate, and the better off they will be when the Reset occurs. Conversely, the US will be caught without any gold at all. Few people in the know believe that the US government really holds 8,000 tons of gold, as it claims to have. It cannot even find enough gold in its coffers to give back what they have been storing for Germany when that nation recently demanded its 300 tons of gold. Again, in the 1990’s when China bought gold from the West, it discovered that the gold was really just gold-plated tungsten. They traced it to Fort Knox, where the gold was counterfeited. The story hit the internet news in 2009. Jim Rickards does not speak from a biblical perspective. He is trying to save the old way of life in America for as long as possible. I can appreciate that, of course, but to me it is more important to find out what God is doing in the History of the Kingdom. Just because we have a high standard of living in our Babylonian captivity does not mean that it will last forever. At some point Babylon’s foundations will erode and collapse. The Judahites in Babylon did not want to leave either. After 70 years, most of them were well entrenched in Babylonian life and business, and did not want to endure the trials of recolonizing their old land. That is why so few returned with Zerubbabel. A similar situation exists today. Babylon has made America wealthy, largely due to the world trade tax that is imposed upon every nation that does international trade. Because the US dollar is used for making payments in world trade, the wire transfers have to be made in US dollars through the SWIFT system of money transfers. All such payments go through the Federal Reserve Bank, which takes a percentage of the transaction as a fee. This is, in effect, a tax on all world trade. The BRICS nations are setting up a new system of payments through their own bank which bypasses the SWIFT system and the Federal Reserve. Payments are being done in each country’s own currency for the present, but soon will create its own world reserve currency made up of a basket of currencies. In other words, world trade going through the BRICS bank will be settled in about four specific currencies, rather than the single US dollar. Jim Rickards concedes that because of this the US dollar is doomed. So when can we expect this global reset to happen? Rickards does not give a date, but he says essentially that it will happen when China feels it has accumulated enough gold to secure its yuan (currency) as part of the “basket of currencies” that will replace the US dollar. He says, Jeff: And when you think about it, it’s almost as if there’s no way out of this…. Jim: You’re right. And it is just more fuel for the fire as global players look to distance themselves from using the dollar as the world’s reserve currency. And while America is loath to lose its position as the world’s reserve currency, our astronomical money printing to cover our debt makes it impossible to sustain. Basically, we’ve overstepped our monetary bounds for good, and there is no turning back… I’ve had private conversations with former Federal Reserve board members, and other central bankers around the globe, on what’s going on behind the scenes—what’s not getting reported in the mainstream media—and frankly, everything I’m hearing is that this global reset is about to hit. In fact, we already know what it looks like, and when you can expect it to happen. So when can we expect this global reset to happen? Rickards does not give a date, but he says essentially that it will happen when China feels it has accumulated enough gold to secure its yuan (currency) as part of the “basket of currencies” that will replace the US dollar. He says, “And while countries publicly claim that they no longer tie their currency to the value of gold, what they are doing privately is a different story. . And China is the biggest actor in covert gold acquisition…. And since it knows the ‘dollar’ system is coming to an end,it has to increase its gold holdings before it can trigger a global reset of the world’s [new] reserve currency.” But since China’s official figures do not match their actual holdings, we are on our own in figuring out how much they really have, and how much they need to have before the reset. Jim says, Jim: China’s last official announcement was over five years ago on April 25, 2009. At that time, it claimed to have 1,054 tonnes. That’s a 76% increase from the 600 tonnes it had in 2003. Right now, Shanghai Daily has reported that China has quietly amassed about 2,710 tonnes of gold. Jeff: That’s an unofficial number. Jim: Yes, that’s an unofficial number. But you and I both know that China controls its media. So it is letting it be known that it is accumulating more gold, but it is not letting the public know exactly how much. But from what I have gathered from trusted sources, the Chinese actually have amassed around 4,000 to 4,500 tonnes of gold already. Jeff: Wow, that’s a massive difference. Jim: It is. And when Chinese gold hits around $5,000 an ounce, all bets are off. It will be the second punch that will deal a deathblow to the dollar. And set off the wholesale destruction of American wealth. The bottom line is that China is being allowed to acquire gold without spooking the markets and driving up the price. This way, it will be “on the train” when it leaves the station. The only problem is that when the train leaves the station and the global reset triggers a new reserve currency, nearly all American wealth will be wiped out, except for those who have prepared themselves in advance… One last thing, Jeff. Our viewers should know that China could announce its holdings at any time. So they shouldn’t wait to get their financial house in order. The time to act is now. Before it’s too late…. Jeff: From what you’ve seen today, we are beyond the point of no return, as China prepares to announce its official gold holdings at any time. And when it does, there will be no time left to prepare yourself for the devastation ahead. And to think our government is helping China do it. By suppressing the price of gold, under the guise of weakening its function as a reserve currency, China is able to covertly acquire as much gold as it will need to trigger the death of money as you know it. So the bottom line here—as they see it—is that China is holding about 4,500 tons (tonnes) of gold right now. They suggest that their goal is to accumulate about 5,000 tons before announcing the global currency reset. When they make this announcement, investors will realize that the current price is totally unrealistic in view of all the secret purchases going on in the past few years. This will make it impossible to rig the price of gold any longer, and it will shoot up almost immediately to at least $5,000 per ounce. At that price, it will be able to back the new basket of currencies that the BRICS nations are putting together to replace the US dollar as the world currency for the next century or longer. Meanwhile, the US has no defense against what is coming, unless it is able to start World War III and destroy the BRICS nations (beginning with Russia). The price-riggers have no choice but to keep the price of gold and silver low, because that is the only way the dollar can retain its value. But rigging the market to keep the price of gold low allows China and India to buy gold cheaply with all the dollars they hold in their reserves. When things change, those nations holding gold and silver will emerge as the strongest in the world. The others will suffer loss. For us, it is important to see that China is playing the role of modern Cyrus, while Russia is playing the “front man” role of Darius. Hence, Russia taking all the heat, while China remains quiet while backing Russia to the hilt from behind the scenes. As believers who understand Bible prophecy, we have no reason to fear either Russia or China. God has raised them up to overthrow Babylon and to set us free. Jim Rikards is sounding the alarm in order to sell more books, of course, but we can look at the facts without fear. The fact is, the Dragon families of China are emerging as the real power brokers in China and the BRICS alliance. They were overthrown in 1910 when the last dynasty was overthrown and the Republic of China was established, and have been in hiding since 1949, when the Communists took power. These Dragon families have made it known that they intend to minimize the chaos as much as possible on account of the global reset. The destruction and chaos could be greatly minimized if the Babylonian oligarchs of the West would simply capitulate and give up power. For example, if the US congress would agree to ratify the new IMF reforms—as the rest of the world has already done—this transfer of power could be more amicable. But the Western oligarchs have chosen to foment war and to sponsor terrorism in order to cause chaos in hopes of extending their dominance for a little while longer. This is the primary reason the transition will cause pain to so many people. We can hardly expect anything else from these people, and for this reason we should prepare ourselves to the best of our ability. As for the Dragon families, they intend to use their enormous wealth for the benefit of mankind to rebuild the world under Divine Order—as they understand it. In my view, I suspect that they will need further divine counsel through a study of God’s law in order to perfect what they are setting up. Their main concern now is in the economic and financial realm. Once this is established, they will see the need to change the judicial systems of the world. They will need instructors to teach the laws set forth by Moses, the applications of law by the prophets, and Jesus’ New Covenant understanding of the law seen in the gospels. Source.

  18. Translated...... “Brothers, don’t betray us!” It appears the Cypriots (or more clearly the European leaders) do not appreciate the extent to which Russia has propped up the local economy. “When the Russians leave who is going to stay at the Four Seasons for $500 a night? Angela Merkel?” one wealthy Russian asks rhetorically, as The FT reports, they are receiving a deluge of overseas phone calls from helpful Swiss bankers looking to swoop up the deposit transfers. "The locals should understand: as soon as the money leaves, the people who go to restaurants, buy cars and buy property leave too. The Cypriots’ means of living will disappear," and there are signs that the locals are getting how drastic this situation is, as a large billboard has sprung up at Larnaca Airport with a Russian flag and the words "Brat’ya ne predaite nas!" - "Brothers, don’t betray us!" Many Russian businessmen appear to have one foot out of the door already and are considering with jurisdiction to move to as they await to see if Medvedev follows through on his threat to dismantle the double tax treaty with Cyprus. ... One Cypriot lawyer with Russian clients said he had already been approached by half-a-dozen European banks in locales ranging from Latvia to Switzerland to Germany, some of them promising they could open new bank accounts for his clients in under an hour. ... “The Cypriots killed their country in one day,” says Mr Mikhin, referring to Friday March 15, when President Nicos Anastasides accepted the EU’s proposal to seize €5.8bn in emergency funds from Cyprus’s local and foreign depositors. ... “The locals should understand: as soon as the money leaves, the people who go to restaurants, buy cars and buy property leave too. The Cypriots’ means of living will disappear,” he says. “They are saying we laundered all the money, but they lived on that money for 10 years and forgot about it.” ... Says another Nicosia-based lawyer: “I don’t understand why it is money laundering when it’s in Cyprus, when in London it’s a perfectly respectable company.” ... “If the double-taxation treaty is lifted there will be no reason for us to stay in Cyprus,” an oligarch’s Russian lawyer says bluntly. Mr Mikhin complains that the Cypriots do not appreciate the extent to which Russia has propped up the local economy. “When the Russians leave who is going to stay at the Four Seasons for $500 a night? Angela Merkel?” But there are signs that a growing number of locals realize how drastic a mass emigration of Russian business would be. Over the past week, a new billboard has sprung up on the highway between Limassol, the palm-treed beach town favoured by the Russians, and Larnaca International Airport. Drawing on Russia and Cyprus’s shared Orthodox faith and deep political ties dating back to the Soviet era, the advertisement displays a massive Russian flag, with a desperate plea in Russian underneath: “Brat’ya ne predaite nas!” “Brothers, don’t betray us!”
