Editor Note: Back to normal health, just a nasty flu, all gone. Thanks for all the well-wishing notes and alternative remedy suggestions, some of which were already in place. It is good to have normal focus, energy, and balance again.
QUOTES ON MONEY
"I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me, and the financial institutions in the rear. Of the two, the one in my rear is my greatest foe." ~ Abraham Lincoln (made in a statement to Congress, later the same year on April 14th 1865, Lincoln was assassinated)
"If that mischievous financial policy, which had its origin in the North American Republic, should become indurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without a debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of civilized governments of the world. The brains and the wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe." ~ The Times of London (1862)
"Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is absolute master of all industry and commerce. When you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate." ~ US President James Garfield (two weeks later in 1881 he was assassinated)
"People might find interesting that the insignia of the CIA division are identical to those from the former SS Panzer divisions. The OSS/CIA was heavily influenced and actually formed by German intelligence professionals like General Gehlen. The post-WW2 steps represented a transfer of nazi power to Langley, done far more in full view than people noticed." ~ HTL client (history professor from Germany, to which the Jackass replied that Homeland Security Agency appeared to be a blatant Gestapo office creation)
"The Ukraine Military is getting crushed. There is an incredibly high influx of highly trained soldiers from France, the UK, Germany, Holland, and other Western European countries. Those Western soldiers are battle proven professionals who are lending the Eastern Ukrainian Forces enormous punch power. The Ukraine Military is totally demoralized and the defections are very high. The Western Kiev puppets are making plans to leave the country, trying to escape to safety, as the common people in Ukraine are slowly getting the message how they have been betrayed and stripped by the Western friends. The mainstream media can only keep feeding bullshit for so long. The French detachment of the European Freedom Fighters have captured American Blackwater mercenaries early this morning. They are currently being interrogated. This will be fun to see once they are paraded in front of the press." ~ The Voice (evidence of deep division at the top, leading to the conclusion that NATO is dead)
"[Attempts at isolating Russia] do not solve any problems. It will create more problems in Europe and elsewhere. A return to stability in Ukraine and in Europe can only be achieved by working with Russia, not against it." ~ Swiss President Didier Burkhalter (mediator between European Union and Russia, as head of the Organization for Security & Cooperation in Europe)
"In the next few months, a great controversy might blossom, as China begins a campaign for acquisitions of agricultural businesses in Spain and other European countries. Many will face bankruptcy due to the insane US-led sanctions, and seek investment partners. The domestic political groups will erupt in criticism." ~ the Jackass
"America is prepared to fight a war with Russia to the last Ukrainian." ~ Mikhal Zadnornov (Russian writer and comedian)
"Prizes awarded by the Nobel Committee are not retracted. It remains the obligation of the Committee to disassociate itself from actions taken by laureates that frustrate rather than advancing the fraternity between nations and the abolition or reduction of standing armies. The Committee therefore joins with the public statements of several Nobel Peace Laureates in expressing its regrets over the conduct of the 2009 prize recipient." ~ Thorbjorn Jagland (Nobel Peace Prize Laureate speaking on behalf of the Nobel Committee about Obama's prize in 2009, which raises the question of what they were thinking when they bestowed the prize upon Obama so early in his first term, with zero legislation under his name in Congress and zero external projects outside the USA)
"A dark and sinister madness has descended upon the American government. It is madness because it is divorced from reality. It is madness because it is divorced from a desire to serve the human race, which is the ultimate expression of sanity. It is madness because its promotion of violence is certain to cause more violence rather than ending it. It is dark and sinister because its underlying intention hides in the shadows from which it springs out at crucial moments to forward its dastardly purpose. It will be to the everlasting shame of the Nobel Prize Committee that they gave a Peace Prize to the man who is guaranteeing that peace has now become impossible." ~ Rodney Shakespeare (visiting Professor of Binary Economics at Trisakti University in Indonesia, from Cambridge England)
"If Obama resigns from office now, thereby doing a great service to the country, I will give him free lifetime golf at any one of my courses." ~ Donald Trump
## INTRO MONETARY FRAGMENTS
◄$$$ SPECIAL REPORT ON RUSSIA & CHINA IN COOPERATION >>>
The Western sanctions have attempted to isolate Russia. Despite some growing damage, the Great Bear has been working on a marriage with the Great Dragon. The USGovt has hastened their work together toward creation of an alternative to the USDollar and the SWIFT bank system. The cooperation between Russia & China is broad, deep, and valid. The Global Paradigm Shift is at work, as the Eastern Alliance is forming both commercially and financially. The United States will again experience the whiplash of sanctions failure. The nation has lost almost all prestige. See the September Special Report entitled "Russia & China Join at the Hip" for the supplement this month.
- Gazprom will accept Yuan & Ruble currency in energy payments. The de-Dollarization of the energy market is moving forward. The Petro-Dollar will die from Russian and Saudi rejection in response to sanctions. (This is correct Jackass forecast made back in March and April.)
- Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov has been very vocal. Amazingly, the US Press harshly criticizes Russia when the United States is the most belligerent party in the fray. USGovt foreign policy centers on sanctions.
- Russians are busy washing their hands from the SWIFT system. Russia & China are in talks to make an alternative banking system to SWIFT, dominated by US rulemakers.
- Russia & China merge interests with a wide mixture of projects. The two superpower nations are ramping up their collaboration, as commercial bonds are firming. The RWE acquisition was permitted, by Russian interests of the German firm. R&C plan to build a giant seaport in the Sea of Japan.
- Russia has signaled its intention to admit Iran to the Asian security bloc. India should follow soon but with greater risks. The new Silk Road & SCO are firming up. New members will be welcomed, as SCO counters NATO.
- De-Dollarization continues as China and Argentina agree to a currency swap. They will trade in RMB in good volume. One might smell a default in the air, with Western bankers as bagholder victims.
- China, Japan, and South Korea concluded their latest Free Trade Agreement talks. The three nations form the cornerstone of East Asian economies.
◄$$$ SCOTLAND NEARS TO DECISION TO SECEDE FROM UNITED KINGDOM... POLLS ARE RUNNING BETWEEN 55% AND 60% IN FAVOR OF AN EXIT... PRESSURE HAS COME FROM BANKS IN SCOTLAND... HUGE REVENUE LOSS WOULD STRIKE ENGLAND FROM LOST NORTH SEA OIL REVENUES, WHICH WOULD GO ALMOST COMPLETELY TO SCOTLAND... THE UNION BREAKUP MOVEMENT IS GATHERING STEAM LIKE A RUSHING HERD, ACROSS BORDERS IN THE EUROPEAN UNION. $$$
An unusual entry was given in the Scottish independence movement. Debt rating agency Fitch Ratings remarked that an independent Scotland would stand with about 90% of the North Sea oil reserve rights, but only 8.4% of the total national debt of Great Britain. Currently, the fiscal data from Scotland is balanced. The tax revenue from Scots is at 9.6%, while Scotland accounts for about 9.3% of the entire budget. Scotland's GDP is estimated at GBP 140 billion (=US$225 bn). The Scottish budget deficit in 2010-2011 averaged 7.4% of GDP, versus 9.2% for the UK in entirety. A more complex gritty topic pertains to the right to issue the British Pound currency (hardly money). The right belongs not only to the Bank of England, but also to the three Scottish and four Irish banks: Royal Bank of Scotland, Bank of Scotland, Clydesdale Bank, then Bank of Ireland, First Trust Bank Allied Irish Banks, Northern Bank, Ulster Bank. The Scottish and Irish banks can legally print currency with an important caveat, where they are obliged to deposit value in the amount one-to-one with the Bank of England, with other legacy provisions of deposits dating two centuries ago.
The biggest impact to England would be the slamming effect from lost North Sea revenue. The graph above is loud and clear on the message. The deficits would put the United Kingdom in worse shape than the Southern European PIGS nations, moving from minus 4.7% of GDP to almost minus 7.0% of GDP. The lost oil revenue would putsh the UKGovt deficit down by 2.2% worse. The Jackass has said for five years running that the UK will have a huge challenge to avoid falling into the Third World with the United States, for monetary inflation damage, outsourced industry, and chronic war. Notice how QE bond monetization has had a powerful negative effect on the UKGovt fiscal account since its inception in 2011. QE aids banks but kills the economy.
Scotland is a trail blazer. It is the first nation in the European Union region to try and break free from a larger entity. Watch Catalonia in Spain next, and the Basque of France, and Venice in Italy for that matter. Beware of the United Nations charter that addresses the right for nations to hold self-determination. For the people in Greece, Italy, Spain, and elsewhere, the vote is most crucial. Until the moment that their countries break free of the Brussels shackles holding them to the crippled fascist warmongering EU, led by unelected commissioners, their economies will continue to suffer. A catalyst must come to dissolve the EU. The resistance is enormous from bankers, politicians, and warmongers. The British Royals, the EU Commissioners, and NATO commanders are all making strong pushes against the separatist movement. However, the breakup of the current European Union form is just is a matter of time, an inevitable event. Their actions put the economies and industries at great risk. See the Market Oracle article (CLICK HERE). A strange footnote, way off topic, but interesting. Of all American society ethnic groups, two stand out as being highest on the list of individual millionaires, Scots and Russians. They are both fiercely independent and enterprising.
London Paul attempted to influence the important event sequence. He wrote to Scotland First Minister Alexander Salmond, whereby he recommended that "Scotland ask for affliate status with BRICS. They could negotiate a deal to give up some oil revenue in return for concessions from Westminister in the short term. Then they could look to sign trade deals with Russia & China, and later start to create a gold backed sovereign wealth fund with oil revenue. Employ flat taxation system and encourage advantageous corporation tax levels." The Voice pitched it a small grenade. "The real issue for the Brits is that the Royal Navy will lose its submarine base in Scotland, without having an alternative port." To which the Jackass replied that the English could rent the same naval port for a silly low annual fee, under threat to kill the Scottish leaders with MI-6 contracts. For a very amusing treatment of the Scottish Independence movement, check out comedian John Oliver on Last Week Tonight, a British show. He portrays Cameron as a fool with weak spirit, who does not acknowledge the North Sea oil revenue as a major challenge. He is a Tory who is embarrassed by his Oxford roots. The show presents unicorns, kilts, bagpipes, even Brave Heart in a funny way, while touching on difficult matter. He suggested that in the event of a tie, Loch Ness cast the deciding vote. To be sure, the Scots are a very colorful lot. See the Oliver video (CLICK HERE).
◄$$$ SCOTTISH BANKS THREATEN TO SHUT DOWN, ELIMINATING 100,000 JOBS, WHILE UKGOVT LEADERS URGE SCOTLAND TO STAY IN THE UNION... THE CURRENCY ISSUE LOOMS AS A LARGE FACTOR TO RESOLVE, WHILE INSURANCE REGULATION ALSO LEAVES UNSETTLED QUESTIONS. $$$
Scotland risks losing the heart of its financial services industry if it votes in favor of independence from the United Kingdom. The biggest names in banking and insurance say they would move headquarters and parts of their businesses to England in the event of a favorable vote. The firms involved are Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), Lloyds, and investment firm Standard Life. The giant Lloyds is the big player. Lloyds owns the Bank of Scotland and pension provider Scottish Widows. It should be mentioned that Clydesdale Bank was spun out of Lloyds earlier this year, now a subsidiary of National Australia Bank and TSB Bank. British finance has deep historical roots in Scotland. Operating in a very large shadow, Edinburgh is the second biggest financial center in the UK after London. The vote is Thursday September 18th, the results disclosed the next day. It is a binding vote.
The financial sector employs 100,000 people in Scotland. It manages over GBP 800 billion in funds and generates roughly GBP 7 billion (=US$11 bn) for the domestic economy each year. A favorable vote would result in confusion for several years. Scotland would be bound to create a new currency, to adopt the British Pound under new strictures, or to possibly adopt the Euro currency. Some talk has come of a shared Sterling Zone, which the British lawmakers and Bank of England have summarily ruled out. At issue would be tax and spending powers, a common central bank, and deposit guarantee scheme. Some analysts expect Scotland would effectively shadow the Pound at high risk and cost, much like what Hong Kong does with the USDollar. The life insurance firms are unclear about regulation, consumer protection, and future tax policies. With so many open questions, the worry is that a vote for independence could trigger a flight of capital during a period of great confusion. See the CNN Money article (CLICK HERE).
◄$$$ LONDON BEGINS THE BOND RACE... THE BRITISH GOVT WILL ISSUE DEBT SECURITIES IN RMB CURRENCY... LOOK FOR OTHER MAJOR NATIONS TO FOLLOW SUIT, AS THE CHINESE CURRENCY EXPANDS IN SCOPE. $$$
"The British government intends to become the first national government outside of China, which will issue bonds in China's currency," stated UK Finance Minister George Osborne. The report is made by ITAR-TASS (CLICK HERE) in Russian language. It will be full of intrigue to see which nations next issue sovereign bonds in RMB currency, as a kiss on bent knee to the Chinese ring. It is not clear that the German Govt has much debt to issue, or needs the added liquidity. Watch the PIGS nations of Southern Europe. Watch Portugal, Italy, Greece, and Spain, in addition to the crippled pigpen captain France. A further step could be the race by London and Frankfurt to sell the bonds issued in RMB terms by the other nations. Clearly the bells has been rung.
◄$$$ SANTANDER BANK CHIEF MIGHT HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED. $$$
The death of the Santander chief has weighed down the European stock market. Europe's leading shares fell on consecutive sessions last week, with Spain's top lender Santander a very big drag. The big Spanish bank must contend with finding a successor. Sentiment on the broader market was harmed by the prospect of tighter US monetary conditions (all talk, no action), along with the wars in Ukraine and the Middle East (in truce, which US might sabotage). My Jackass sources indicate the Santander CEO Emilio Boitin might have been removed for knowing too much. One can only guess, like about bank fraud and market rigging, perhaps something pertaining to derivatives and the Deutsche Bank case. The official story is he died of a heart attack, which is not likely, unless from a potassium spike.
◄$$$ PEPE ESCOBAR SEES RUSSIA, CHINA, GERMANY AS THE NEW AXIS, WHILE THE USGOVT MANAGES A POOR EMPIRE STRATEGY... THE PETRO-DOLLAR IS FAST LOSING ITS SUPPORT LEGS... HE DELINEATES THE BACKFIRE OF SANCTIONS AND THE WAR ITSELF, WHICH IS HASTENING THE END OF THE KING DOLLAR AND THUS EMPIRE. $$$
US President Barack Obama is not pursuing the effective domination strategy promoted by Zbigniew Brzezinski, often called the Grand Chessboard. Refer to the three grand imperatives of imperial geostrategy taught by Mackinder: 1) to prevent collusion and maintain security dependence among the vassals, 2) to keep tributaries pliant and protected, 3) to keep the barbarians from coming together. All three have been trampled. The Obama Admin has even violated the primitive foreign policy doctrine of Hillary Clinton, noted by not doing stupid stuff. The depletion of USArmy troops will require greater reliance upon drones controlled by the massive arcades. The main casualty of the Ukraine War with sanctions might be the Petro-Dollar. The many vassal states in Europe and the Gulf States might feel no security offered at all by the Empire of Chaos, as Pepe calls the United States. Compare what Nixon did to keep China and Russia separated, using the China Card. This Obama has done the opposite, bringing opponents together. See the Asia Times article (CLICK HERE). The competition is between the new Eastern Axis and the Fascist Axis led by the US, UK, and Israel.
Pepe Escobar summarized the strategic errors succinctly. He concluded, "But then the Empire of Chaos encouraged a defacto coup. And gave the green light for the new Kiev mob to do in Eastern Ukraine roughly what Israel does in Gaza. The idea in Ukraine was to bog down Russia in its western borderlands and to cut off the economic and trade link between Russia and Germany. Cut Eurasia in half. But then Obama launched a Cold War 2.0 that could easily turn hot. He destroyed the relationship with chancellor Angela Merkel and Germany and amplified the strategic embrace between the Bear [Russia] and the Dragon [China], with the result that Beijing started paying less attention to the pivoting to Asia because now it enjoys even more backing from Moscow. Meanwhile, Moscow further stalls Washington's advances in Central Asia. Sanctions on Russia not only reinforce its internal market but also boost its foreign trade, way beyond European shores. Yet still it was not enough to totally sell out to Wall Street and totally wreck US foreign policy. With aides/advisors like National Security Advisor Susan Rice, Deputy National Security Advisor Benjamin Rhodes, US Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power, and Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, who needs enemies? Obama's sanctions hysteria is leading the way to the progressive end of the US dollar as reserve currency, and the end of the Petro-Dollar. Obama is accelerating the now uncontrolled collapse of the Empire of Chaos. The new axis of the future (Beijing, Moscow, Berlin) is slowly but surely coming together. There is nothing barbarian about them. And the bulk of the Global South supports them." By Global South, Pepe means South America and Africa, even possibly the Middle East.
◄$$$ PUTIN EXPOSES THE NWO AND THEIR SINISTER AGENDA. $$$
Putin is a very bold man. He has booted the Rothschilds from Russia and has obstructed the NWO plans. Thus the Ukraine War and indirect assault on Russia. He must have some very strong backing. To expose the National Wrifle Ossociation and its super elite banker cabal is truly gutsy, courageous and bold. Send me no emails on this touchy subject, as they will not be answered. Besides, got no knowledge. See the YouTube video (CLICK HERE).
◄$$$ CHINESE GROWTH SLOWS THE MOST SINCE LEHMAN (BUT WITH SPURIOUS DATA COLLECTION)... CAPEX GROWTH IS WORST SINCE 2001, BUT STILL AT A 16.5% RISE... ELECTRIC OUTPUT TUMBLES TO NEGATIVE... HOWEVER, THE CHINESE TRADE SURPLUS IS GROWING STILL AND HAS REACHED A RECORD IN AUGUST... MANY CHALLENGES REMAIN. $$$
China does not have a refined economic statistics practice for macro data. Certain items such as retail sales, fixed business investment, electricity, even steel and cement production are not typically included in their economic activity. Based upon the odd incomplete output data released by the Chinese Govt, the Q2 recovery has faded. The Chinese Economy has officially ground down to a crawl in their terms. Their capital expenditures in fixed business investment (CAPEX) grew at the slowest pace in the 21st century. Although an enviable figure for any emerging market nation, the 16.5% CAPEX growth was the lowest since 2001. It all suggests that challenges lie ahead in addition to commodity prices and inventory management schemes. Bank capital will be an issue on the horizon.
The more reliable meaningful data might be the Chinese trade surplus, since all the nitty anomalies are mixed into the cauldron. The final tally is the best data. China declared its trade surplus widened to US$49.8 billion in August, a rise from US$47.3 billion in July. Exports grew 9.4% year over year, while imports fell 2.4% yoy to show some maturity in the rising middle class, if not stock or property losses. The surplus data is hardly evidence of a deeply troubled system or an economy dealing with serious financial disruption, or even of crippling inventory snafus. See the Zero Hedge article (CLICK HERE) and Bloomberg article (CLICK HERE).
◄$$$ THE NATO SUMMIT AND THE POTENTIAL FOR MORE GOLF OUTINGS BY THE KENYAN PRINCE OF SHAM... FRICTION WAS RESTRAINED FROM VIEW... DISSENSION WAS EVIDENT IN SUBTLE WAYS... OBAMA IS BEING BLOCKED ON THE DOMESTIC FRONT FROM GOLF COURSE ACCESS. $$$
The NATO Summit held in Wales (within Great Britain) came and went. It featured fewer sparks than the Jackass expected, although in the backroom meetings some fur might have been spotted falling to the floor, if not daggers from the eyes. They met in a special gathering in order to discuss and coordinate the Western response to the Ukraine situation, which has gone badly. Cleanup of the Fascist mess will be lengthy. The official description is of Russian intervention in Ukraine. The actual description is more like the US intervention through Langley surrogates in Ukraine designed to remove a standing democratically elected president (even though deeply corrupt in his own manner). The resentment was not so visible, toward the reeling European continent. The Nobel Peace Prize Winner was nowhere to be seen, just the warmonger US President. The empty chair was given transfer to Wales, where he demonstrated impressive enthusiasm following his blitz tour of Europe, which stands on the edge of a recessionary abyss, courtesy of the costs Obama has imposed on Germany and other nations from sanctions. Recall that the Kiev Regime was installed by the Langley folks, and boasted by Victoria Nuland with even a mention of $5 billion in project costs (which Americans ignore). Those costs were possibly handed to the USGovt, but might have been supplemented by narco profits from Langley heroin trafficking. See the Zero Hedge article (CLICK HERE).
The NATO summit took place at the magnificent Celtic Manor Resort, the location of the 2010 Ryder Cup, a US-Europe golf tourament challenge. Given the unprecedented security presence, Obama surely had no problem sneaking in a couple rounds of golf during the two-day duration of the summit. His Secret Service staff surely had less fun than in Cartagena Colombia, for a Summit on the Organization of American States in 2012. Obama can be seen with his three important ministers in his cabinet. He is often spotted with his usual mates to make the dubious loathsome foursome.
Speaking of golf, Obama has registered a record with something like 150 rounds of golf recorded by a sitting president. He surely has more Executive (Fascist) Decrees than that. It is believed he has conducted twice that many fund raising events. Over the Labor Day weekend, curiously several New York golf courses rejected the petitions by Obama for a holiday weekend visit. This was reported by NBC News, not subject to censorship. A number of sources told the network that top golf courses in the Westchester area turned down requests by the president's crack (no intended reference to narcotics) team for Saturday August 30th. The team has become expert in securing golf tee reservations in the last six years, a full-time job. The clubs in rejection include Trump National Golf Club, the Winged Foot, and Willow Ridge. Club managers, who were approached on short notice before the requested visit, apparently did not want to inconvenience their members by shutting down the club, just to provide him a more secure setting. They are next at risk of tax audits. See the NewsMax article (CLICK HERE). The Jackass does not blame the Obama Admin for killing capital, with the clear finger of blame pointed at the USFed. However, Obama has no economic agenda at all beyond the oppressive ObamaCare strangle exerted on small businesses. Poor Obama, the Manchurian Candidate from Kenya, is having a horrible public relations problems that might rival Boss Tweed and Tammany Hall from the days of cartoonist Thomas Nast.
◄$$$ THE WALES NATO SUMMIT SHOWED SOME HIDDEN DAMAGE... THE ALLIANCE HAS BEEN BADLY WEAKENED BUT IN A SUBTLE WAY... IT HAS NO FIRM SOLIDARITY OF PURPOSE... IT HAS SOME RENEGADE FACTIONS. $$$
The opportunity in Wales at the NATO meeting did not reveal any overt slams at the naive marxist puppet shipped in from Kenya. In past G-7 Meetings, Obama had been shunned at many opportunities, much like a leper. Some internal dissension has come to Europe from rotating the Top Jobs at the EU like some sort of childish game of passing the Scepter of Power in a backyard fort. In my mind, the biggest challenge ahead is for Germany to act independently on the Ukraine War and the USDollar front. The appearance of private militias formed by experienced professional soldiers from Germany, France, Holland, and even England to fight against the Ukraine Regime serves as stark evidence that the NATO Alliance has fractures or at least missing concrete supports behind its visible facades. The Jackass believes NATO is fatally damaged. These soldiers might be fighting without payment, no remuneration, toward the cause of Ukraine Freedom. A great undermine by Germany is seen from their continued efforts with Russia on commerce and USD alternative, while moving away from the war footing. A deep domestic division is forming within Germany between the bankers with their political henchmen, and the commercial industrial chiefs. Expect the chiefs to prevail.
The Voice registered an opinion. He has many contacts and interests in Germany. He has ears inside the meetings. He wrote the following messages. "I don't like Merkel very much, but what she pulled off at the NATO summit is quite remarkable. She single-handedly foiled plans by Obama and Cameron to isolate Russia, by canceling the entire treaty regime that is in place. It had been working just fine. She has been under incredible pressure from the real decision makers in Germany to tell the US-UK clowns to back off or else. You will see enormous tensions during the upcoming NATO Summit gathering. Germany is dead set against what the others are up to. It was a big mistake to have put this Polish clown into the top job at the EU." See the Spiegel article (CLICK HERE) in German language.
The tension and sparks were managed well in Wales. The lack of respect toward Obama, and the distrust of the United States, was evident but not overtly displayed. Bear in mind that the United States has violated NATO Treaties in many instances. Its most egregious violation was placing ballistic missiles on Russian borders, using the newly enlisted Eastern European nations, each a former Soviet Bloc member. Vladimir Putin has reminded official forums of these violations, falling on deaf ears as the exceptional nation continues to wage war and trample on pacts. What the Voice referred to was a philosophical undermine within the NATO mindset. The German state no longer shares the hostile aggressive proactive usage of war. He revealed something of key importance. The German Govt responded back in 2011 to hearing of Ukraine long-term plans, the scorched earth, the fascist regime change, the firewall to block Russia, even at the risk of reduced Gazprom energy supply. The German Govt reaction three years ago was to demand the repatriation of their gold account held at the New York Fed. The motive for gold demand is now more clear. The US bank syndicate dons refused the German Parliament flat. Thus the completed picture with friction filling the room. The German split began in 2011, and will continue through 2014, and into 2015 with full efforts to leave the European Union, to leave NATO, to stop usage of the Euro currency. They will work with Russia & China on the return to the Gold Trade Standard. The consequence will be the demise of the Petro-Dollar, the de-throne of King Dollar, and the end of American Imperial Rule.
◄$$$ TURKEY REFUSED THE OBAMA REQUEST TO USE ITS AIRBASES TO FIGHT ISIS... GERMANY ALSO HAS REFUSED... PERHAPS THEY BOTH ARE WELL AWARE THAT ISIS IS AN ARAB OUTFIT CREATED BY LANGLEY... BEHIND THE WALLS IS MASSIVE HEROIN TRAFFICKING. $$$
To begin with, the ISIS operation headquarters are located in Ankara Turkey, at the USEmbassy. Not only is the usage illegal, but it makes the entire ISIS matter extremely delicate. So the Turkish Govt has refused to permit the USMilitary usage of its air bases to attack the ISIS strongholds. The USGovt will probably use them anyway, and disguise the usage within regular Incirlik AFBase activity. The situation is spinning out of control. Then again, chaos is what the American Empire is founded upon in the last two decades.
German and Turkish officials have announced that they will not send fighter jets to Iraq and Syria as part of a coalition effort to conduct air strikes against the Islamic State positions. German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier has openly questioned the logic behind the Obama Admin plan to arm the so-called moderate Syrian opposition forces. Turkish officials want no part in the airstrikes, but further, Ankara has rejected the USGovt request to use its air bases to conduct strikes. A Turkish official to AFP stated, "Turkey will not be involved in any armed operation but will entirely concentrate on humanitarian operations. Turkey will not take part in any combat mission, nor supply weapons." They are really hampered, due to the abduction of several Turkish personnel in Iraq. The amateur Secretary of State John Kerry is set to meet with officials in Ankara Turkey in hopes to change their minds (threaten them). Everywhere Kerry goes, discord follows. His ineptitude is only exceeded by Hillary. The Islamic State has in its possession 49 Turkish nationals, who were kidnapped from the Turkish consulate in Mosul Iraq on June 11th. See The Gateway Pundit article (CLICK HERE) and the Breitbart article (CLICK HERE).
DonaldS in Florida made an astute comment, after sending the story. He said, "The US is completely distracted from the real problem of financial system collapse. The White House set loose forces that no longer work in US interest. China does not have to do a thing except let the US burn itself out chasing shadows. At this point nobody knows the rapidity of events. Everything is happening far faster than anyone expected or realizes." How true, the acceleration of events has combined with bad strategy and abusive reliance upon war to defend the USDollar. Here is another important tidbit, this from the Jackass. The Turkish leaders would not reject the US requests without strong assurance from Russia in support. The big NATO AirBase in Incirlik lies in the balance, as Turkey officials step on US toes. The base is a major major heroin distribution point from Kosovo and Afghan sites, in US control. A confrontation is coming soon, especially given that Putin has interfered with US heroin routes out of Afghanistan apart from Turkey's action.
It is difficult to find a place to put the story, since so ugly and typical. The CIA has been implicated in a heroin bust in Australia, as a large shipment was seized in a private airplane. The big Western banks have grown very dependent upon the heroin trade, given their grotesque insolvency. The big business of banks is heroin distributed to Western nations by the CIA. They got caught but the mainstream news will never run the story. See the MadCowNews article (CLICK HERE). Recall the chief US exports are heroin, fraudulent bonds, price inflation, wrecked capital, harmful pharmaceuticals, GMO farm seeds, obesity, and diabetes.
◄$$$ THE USMILITARY SUFFERED A SETBACK IN JAPAN ON RELOCATION OF THE SPRAWLING OKINAWA MILITARY BASE... LOCAL RESISTANCE IS STRONG... JAPANESE LEADER ABE LOOKS WEAK. $$$
Opponents of a new USMilitary base in Japan won a key victory last week. The candidates against the concept now have a majority in Noga's city assembly. They strive to block the construction of the new facility in the Okinawa Prefecture. Maybe the CIA can kill a few of their city council members, and bring the rest in line. That is what they do. The assembly in the City of Noga contains 16 members who are against the relocation of a US base from Futenma, out of a total of 27. Both Noga and Futenma are located in the Okinawa Prefecture, the nation's southernmost district within the island chain. The Japanese Govt wishes to move the Okinawa base from its current heavily populated area, but resistance lies in the path. It should be noted that the smaller city Noga already hosts Camp Schwab, another US Marine base. The re-election of Noga Mayor Inamine in January by a wide margin was effectively a referendum against the US facility. He stated, "Why should only Okinawa hold the burden for security of all of Japan, when the presence of US Marines do not play a big role in deterring China? As mayor, I have operational control over two ports that are needed for use as construction landfill and I will exercise all powers in the municipality to block access." Inamine should avoid small airplanes for the rest of his professional life.
Voter turnout at the assembly was 70%, showing strong local interest on the issue. The results will come as a blow to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who is in favor of the relocation move, as he sees the US presence as a needed deterrent against China. The leader Abe is a US puppet with well known ties. The real strategy by the USGovt, managed by Langley, is to attempt to force constant friction if not mild warfare between Japan and China. It extends from the chaos principle of destablization toward control, used for four decades. The US leadership do not wish to see China, Japan, and SKorea joining into trade zones or major economic cooperation. See the Russia Today article (CLICK HERE).
## 9/11 REMEMBERED & REVISITED
◄$$$ JOAN RIVERS SPOUTED OFF THAT OBAMA IS GAY, MICHELE A TRANSVESTITE... NOW SHE IS DEAD FROM A LOW RISK THROAT BIOPSY CASE. $$$
Don't mess with Obama, who has past gay heroin boyfriends (from 1970s) were made dead suddenly when they come out, two of them from New York City. The Jackass wishes not to engage in a long discussion. but this is worth sharing, even in brief form. Joan Rivers was the biggest public figure to out Obama as gay and Michael (aka Michele) as a transvestite gay man. In front of a White House group, tired from jet lag on travel, before Secret Service staff, Obama referred to his mate as Michael on one occasion. Back when Rivers made the fast comment from a news reporter who innocently asked when the US might be ready for a gap president, in July or so, a few of us wondered if Rivers would be dead in a short while. The Jackass said to a few friends and colleagues that 50-50 yes, some kill shot medically or heart attack induced. It happened, and honestly this analyst was taken aback. The medical case was very minor, a throat cancer biopsy, but Rivers had a bad reaction to anaesthesia supposedly. The Rivers daughter is pursuing the case, where the clinic put Rivers into an induced coma. My guess is Rivers was given a potassium spike injection. Later they pulled the plug on her. A deeper investigation might find a $200k bank deposit in the doctor's private bank account, or in a hidden business account. Below is a comment from The Voice, my great source of information. He requested an informed opinion from someone in the know from the east coast. We believe it was probably a murder execution.
From a connected contact from the Manhattan socialite crowd. "I am here in the US and shortly after this video was on YouTube, she was said to be dead even though she was still alive. I knew that this was a hit. Once she died, the news anchor's exact words were that Joan Rivers has been silenced." The Voice added a rejoinder, "Exactly, she died of a heart attack during vocal cord surgery." As footnote, the mothers of the gay heroin buddy victims have pursued the case with police authorities. They got nowhere. Those men were also silenced, their mothers having run up against the FBI.
◄$$$ STORIES ON 9/11 ARE EMERGING... THE JACKASS HAS A COUPLE. $$$
Hints have arisen that Rudy Guliani was given advanced warning of the World Trade Center attack. He was Mayor of New York City at the time. The Jackass has since January 2002 been a firm believer in the inside job story, the complicity of several key US-based groups, departments, agencies, and networks, being part of the conspiracy. The basic chemistry, physics, architecture, and other details like a rather obvious demolition did not jibe with the cockeyed sloppy official USGovt story. Guliani presided over a farce of an investigation of his own police force, never to complain that his own NYPD police captain was blocked from providing the Kangaroo 9/11 Commission his data in dispute of the numerous vacant conclusions. The captain wanted to enter into the log his personal eyewitness account of several basement level explosions. See the What Really Happened article (CLICK HERE).
The Jackass has received somewhere on the order of 30 different personal accounts of inconsistencies and strange events in support of the Inside Job conspiracy. In my opinion a person who does not believe or give serious weight to a conspiracy is an utter moron, or a badly deluded mental lightweight, or an errant patriot type whose red white blue jockey shorts restrict blood blow to the brain. Consider two stories. The first came from identical stories. One person was an investment friend in Florida, the other a HTLetter client who exchanged numerous emails. The oddity is the identical story from the two people of an anonymous call made on September 10th of 2001, giving as urgent warning not to show up at work the next day. In each case, the person relating the story is of a certain religious ethnic descent with aversion to pork and preference to attend temple services on Saturday night. The warned person within the story was also of this descent. The Jackass has numerous such friends, grew up with such folks, but cannot ignore the common factor. The warning explained that by noon of September 11th, the reason not to go to work would be clear. Neither went to work, and both survived the attack, telling numerous friends and acquaintances of their good fortune and benefit of heeded warning. If one climbs up the ladder of power within the entire news story extraction, arrival comes to the security agency for the little nation on the SouthEast corner of the Mediterranean Sea. They are sometimes called the Masswipes by me, or the Mossbacks or the Bumwadds. They serve as the hired killers for the narco banker syndicate. The second Jackass death threat came from them in 2006.
The second story to relate involved a woman currently living in Hawaii, a HTLetter client. She has a good friend from college who is an air traffic controller, with past experience in the WashingtonDC area back in 2001. The friend was attending a gathering of college mates in an extended dinner function, when she had to make a quick stop in the lady's room. The friend from Hawaii followed her only to learn an ugly fact, while consoling the woman in the midst of vomiting. That day the air traffic controller was coerced into signing a CIA Loyalty Oath. She was forced to maintain silence on what she observed on the control screens, which was that the USAir Force shot down the Shanksville PA commercial airliner, with hot pursuit over a 30-40 minute period in glaring preview. She observed it all, complete with radar ID markings of all aircrafts on the screen. If she breaks the pact within the oath, she loses US citizenship, loses Social Security benefits, loses pension fund rights, becomes a nobody stuck inside the US with no prospect of finding a job, and even ends up on the USGovt official No Fly List.
◄$$$ AN UNSOLICITED ACCOUNT FROM 9/11 EXPERIENCE, FRESH IN THE MEMORY OF A CHICAGO TRADER. $$$
My source from COMEX logistics is George, often cited for a wise perception in the Hat Trick Letter reports. He sent a message on the anniversary day from the dark recesses of his memory, the message unsolicited. "I was one of the large market makers in Fed Funds on the Chicago Board of Trade. On the morning of 9/11, we were hearing rumors that seven planes had been hijacked. Then about 10 minutes later it was down to five planes. These rumors started circulating a good half hour before the first building was hit. Remember, the people at the desks were in phone contact with people all over the world on a continuous basis.
Now here is where it gets interesting. The new trading floor had a huge television screen (at least a hundred smaller panels) maybe 100 feet by 50 feet on one wall. This was often taken over for really big news items or presidential or Fed chair speeches. At the time, it was turned on. A view of the World Trade twin towers was on the screen several minutes before the first tower was hit. Why they showed it before the actual impact is the key, as those in control were tipped off. The news networks must have been very close to the actual event planners. We at the trading floor saw the tower hit faster than the rest of the world, a rather clear indication of an Inside Job given the setup screen. The first commentary was that the towers were hit by a small plane. My first comment to those around me was that is no small plane. As someone who had been in New York's financial district at least a hundred times, I knew how large that building was, and the wing imprint going to the side of the building was no small plane.
Therefore today always starts out very sad for me, as I relive it. In a few hours, it will turn to anger, knowing a good deal more than the average Joe. What really happened, and with a far better idea who was behind it, makes it difficult for me to come to grips with a mentality that is so ruthless for human sacrifice to further their goals. They committed the deed to steer the sheep, and and to line their pockets, and to further the fascist government agenda. One trader nearby was on the phone with a friend trapped on an upper floor. He was surely killed. It was horror.
The Pentagon event is really priceless, since there were video monitors that showed no plane. The impact was clearly missile size, not a big plane. The kicker was of course absolutely no huge scattered debris, no remains of the plane, no body parts of passengers, and so forth. The real joke was that the big gaping hole where it hit was where the records were located. The whole event happened the day after Rumsfeld said that $2.2 trillion was missing [from defense appropriations over a 20-year period], and the USArmy Accounting Office was to issue a report in the following days. To be sure, the same crooks that made the gold disappear beneath the towers are still in power and still at work." The finger of blame for the missing $trillions is directed at the small nation in the SouthEast corner of the Mediterranean Sea. My source Cato mentioned an important detail. That nation (cited by name) for a great many years purchased entire US-made weapon systems at cost dictated by scrap metal prices within the accounting. So entire warships and jet aircraft were purchased for 20 years (from 1980 to 2000) at scrap metal costs. Thus the accounting fraud that the USArmy Accounting Office planned to expose. Then 9/11 hit.
The Jackass would like to add some commentary. Then there the another hundred coincidences which are never mentioned, like how the World Trade Center housed the largest private bank in the world, with an enormous amount of gold stored there, a curious omission in the news. They never mention any WTC bank. Then consider the timing mishaps, or maybe not mishaps but instead Satanic previews in insult. Recall that BBC in England reported that Building #7 at the World Trade Center fell on its national news, ten minutes before the building fell. BBC reported the event before it actually occurred, a very big error committed on the orchestrated crime. That is a huge story in itself, never reported on afterwards except in the alternative internet journals. Notice zero aircraft debris at the Pentagon site, where we are told the commercial aircraft had its wing folded into the impact hole, then vaporized. Total nonsense BS story, which one airline pilot actually defended at a Central American bar to the Jackass in 2012, who told him face to face that he is one of the stupidest humanoids ever encountered in my lifetime. No precedent in human history of metal vaporizing. See the Ukraine site, or the Lockerbee site, where debris is scattered over several hundred meters. At the Pentagon, the impact location is exactly where the USArmy Accounting Office was located, therefore a direct hit. Something like 80% of all the Pentagon site victims were accountants and workers at the accounting office, the data a matter of public record.
Even CNN with Ian McIntyre reported a missile hit the Pentagon on 9/11, only to change to the more nonsensical official story the next day. Rumsfeld resigned a couple months later, lucky not to be eliminated. But he is a Papa Bush friend who surely received a pass. Bush, Rumsfeld, and Saddam Hussein were all business partners, the three seen in numerous photographs. The USGovt prefers to put arms dealers in positions of power like USDept Defense Secretary. Rumsfeld acted on Papa Bush's behalf to supply Saddam with chemical weapons, who used against Iran in the long war during the 1980 decade, then later against the Kurds in regional battles. The Iraqi chemical weapons used by Saddam were made in the US, with US markings on them. See the UK Daily Mail article (CLICK HERE). As footnote, the WTC Bldg #7 contained the JPMorgan Enron records, along with some USTreasury Bond counterfeit records from other JPMorgan $2 trillion frauds. In the crime business, it is called making a black hole.
As for the Pentagon crime scene with no aircraft debris, not even seats or landing gear or fuselage sections, nothing to see, keep moving along. Nothing to see because nothing is there, which is the screaming story. Reports on the scene indicated a missile section was carried off by several men, the debris kept under a blue tarp so that it could not be photographed by onlookers. The unwanted detail that could possibly have been seen was likely a missile in clear terms, which would have made the Bush II Admin uncomfortable. Many Pentagon soldiers of various rank know exactly what happened, but they cannot speak out. They would be silenced by Langley or the Masswipes.
See the Pentagon crime scene on 9/11 (below), which war experts conclude easily was the site of a missile strike. The commercial airliner story is intended for the true morons in the crowd, which comprise the clear majority in the United States. The alternative is too horrible to contemplate. The scene depicted does not resemble any crash site in the last half century. At least 20 crash sites in high profile cases all include widespread debris, including human body parts. Nothing of the sort was found inside the Pentagon either. The incineration story is truly absurd.
The FBI whistle blower is at it again. Sibel Edmonds summarized blame for the entire 9/11 package of false flag attacks to change the course of history, "As far as people who ran the show, it was the highest levels of NATO, the United States, MI-6, CIA, and the Pentagon." In the real world, Edmonds is a former FBI translator who translated terror related communications for the FBI right after 9/11. In that capacity, she read communications between terrorists and other radicals. The reports provided indicate that Operation Gladio was a project unleashed upon Europe by the CIA, but Operation Gladio B is a new name sometimes used to describe the project unleashed upon the United States in recent years. Operation Gladio is very well studied, a focus being terror unleashed in Italy under cover of the Red Brigade. Operation Gladio B will be studied in the future. Edmonds has been deemed credible by the USDept Justice Inspector General, several senators (CLICK HERE), and a coalition of prominent conservative and liberal groups (CLICK HERE). The ACLU described Edmonds as the most gagged person in the history of the United States of America. The famed Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg believes that Edmonds possesses information far more explosive than the Pentagon Papers. He also says that the White House has ordered the press not to cover Edmonds, who has not succumbed to intimidation. The result has been for her to suffer grievous consequences. Edmonds is the founder and president of the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition, a group of high level national intelligence and security officials. See the Washington Blog article (CLICK HERE).
As triple asterisk footnote, harken back to November 1963, another day of infamy. The timing errors are significant. A HTLetter client from Down Under brought to my email inbox that the Australian and New Zealand press reported that President Kennedy was shot a full ten minutes before the bullet actually made impact with the US President. Their news reported an event not yet to happen. So conclude that the press networks are in collusion with the perpetrators of major crimes. They might even enjoy making public errors, as extra insult to the population they abuse. Part of the Satanic Rules of Engagement is to forewarn their victims. The majority of Nazis are Satanic, again well known to those who study their past.
◄$$$ THE PEOPLE MUST BE MADE AWARE... MORE 9/11 RELEASE OF INFORMATION, VERY DETAILED AND POWERFUL DATA... THE USGOVT SECURITY AGENCIES AND OTHER ALLIED SECURITY AGENCIES EXECUTED THE 9/11 CRIME... DATA PRESENTED BY THE KREMLIN (VIA SNOWDEN FILES) AND OTHER SOURCES IS EXTREMELY CRITICAL IN PAINTING A RATHER COMPLETE PICTURE. $$$
Russia has presented evidence against the US, UK, and Israel co-conspirators in gory detail on the mass murder at the World Trade Center and Pentagon on September 11th of 2001. The grand data dump, with great detail on weapon systems, vendors, players, demolition methods, routes used, has been revealed. The implicated parties are the state actors, leaders in the United States. Whereas the assassination of President John Kennedy is widely understood to have been a classic CIA Execution Plan, it does not come close to 9/11 in terms of the volume and magnitude of falsehoods, misleading statements, fake science, suppressed testimony, and fraudulent facts submitted by officials and agents of the USGovt. Numerous agencies were involved, to further a political goal. The official 9/11 Commission Report stands as the most fabricated document ever produced by USGovt officials. Every effort to bring together the truth was obstructed. It contains ten times the distortions and lies that the Warren Commission Report contained following the Kennedy murder. Worse, many eyewitnesses at the World Trade Center site have died mysteriously or suspiciously in the last 13 years, just like the many witnesses at the Dallas Grassy Knoll site in November 1963.
It appears that Russia has been conducting systematic data dumps on 9/11, as promised by Vladimir Putin in February 2014. The release of the documents represents more detailed factual information on the attacks than any USGovt source. In the aftermath and smoke of the Anglo-American coup d'etat conducted by the CIA, MI-6, and Soros in the standing government in Kiev, the Kremlin has no more patience for Western interference and subterfuge. The patience is especially thin when nations are destabilized on Russia's borders, as the stakes in the geopolitical chess match ratchet up. Putin wants no more war. He wants only to remove the USDollar from international trade and banking. So he has responded to the US-EU meddling by using asymmetric warfare on the internet. Russia has decided to use its potent 9/11 option. In bizarre manner, the USGovt has developed an antipathy for truth, in bonafide fascist style. But the truth will emerge, thanks to the AE1000 group and others. The architects and engineers are legion, and courageous.
The Jackass will provide conclusions, but since not central to the newsletter, the details are left for the reader to explore, digest, and absorb. They are horrendous and evidence of crimes against humanity, deep treason, and grounds for exile. Here is the Kremlin contribution to truth, courtesy of Snowden. A powerful excerpt appeared on an alternative news website called Veterans Today under the subtitle "Too Classified to Publish" as a blockbuster, courtesy of the Kremlin. Essentially this unprecedented release of ultra-secret and highly classified information illustrates Putin's new tack toward Western intractability. The data reads like expert witness prepared to enter a Grand Jury courtroom, with hints of military precision. Nuclear material was stolen by Papa Bush, the CIA, MI-6, and the security agency for the small nation on the SouthEast corner of the Mediterranean Sea. They refashioned the nuclear bombs to create 1000 micro-nuclear devices, used in the demolition of the World Trade Center. It did not in any way resemble an implosion from upper floors descending. The demolition sparks and puffs were evident all through lower sections of the building. Besides, jet fuel burns at a temperature far lower than required to alter structural steel. See the Veterans Today articles (CLICK HERE and HERE) for the nuke trails. Similar information is provided in the Millennium Report articles (CLICK HERE and HERE). Also, a corroborating factor is widely known at the WTCenter scene, as multitudes of car and truck engine blocks were melted by the radiation. As footnote, the reader should be aware that nuclear material has identification much like fingerprints. The age and origin of nuclear materail can be traced, due to its uniqueness and its half-life decay rate. Thus it has a birthdate and birthplace. It is radioactive.
Several other articles and documents are worth review and absorption. The mother of all big state lies is covered by Stephen Lendman. See the Global Research article (CLICK HERE). The national issues are covered in other pieces. See the State of the Nation article (CLICK HERE) and the Re-Think 9/11 article (CLICK HERE). Along with the WTCenter Building twin towers, a third structure was demolished with motive. Building #7 contained JPMorgan records on Enron fraud and USTreasury Bond fraud. It was all buried in rubble, along possibly with many dead human bodies during a widely reported and often discussed report of a gun battle shootout between the vile USGovt security agency personnel and good elements of the FBI. See the State of the Nation article (CLICK HERE). Additional data, documents, and evidence are sure to come, as it relatees to the stolen gold bullion, bearer bonds, and diamonds located in the World Trade Center bank vaults. They were all pilfered before the demolition.
◄$$$ NAZI RISE TO POWER IN THE UNITED STATES IS TRACKED. $$$
The Jackass prefers to leave research and gathering of details to the client, since not the primary emphasis of the Hat Trick Letter. The Jackass believes the origin of the Nazi rise in the United States had two key events. The foundation was laid by the creation of the US Federal Reserve in 1913, after President Woodrow Wilson was persuaded to sponsor the action. His lame statement afterwards about regret flies in the face of his firm relationship with John Pierpoint Morgan. The Nazi train moved into gear with the killing of President John Kennedy in 1963, followed by the abrogation of the Gold Standard and the installation of Kissinger as Secretary of State. By then the US Nazis had control of the US Federal Reserve, the USDollar, and the USGovt foreign policy. The Langley officials then began taking control of the US Press Networks, for propaganda purposes, formation of public opinion, and crowd control. The following Lermanet article fills in some blanks on the Nazi ascendance (CLICK HERE).
Americans in the seats of power are the greatest perceived danger to world peace at this time. Their current project lies in Ukraine. A unique poll revealed that on a global basis, the United States is already considered to be, by a wide margin, the most dangerous nation in the world. The USA is considerably more dangerous than Russia. See the Wingia article (CLICK HERE).
As footnote, the Voice claims that soon the dead soldier body count among the USMilitary from the Afghan War will soon be known. The USGovt and Pentagon are concealing the actual death count. It is (according to him) at least 10 times greater than has been publicly stated. When the truth comes out, a firestorm of protest will arrive. The dead soldier bodies are kept over there in freezer warehouses, much like carcasses of beef or swine. Remember, Nazis have almost no regard for human life.
## EUROPEAN UNION TREMBLES
◄$$$ EUROPE IS READY TO BREAK THE UNION... FRACTURES ARE FORMING... THE BRICS WILL JUMP STRAIGHT TO A GOLD-BACKED CURRENCY, WITH NO ATTEMPT TO SUPPORT ANY REFORMED SUPER SOVEREIGN IM-FUND SDR BASKET... THE EUROPEAN QUARTET IS SLOWLY TAKING SHAPE TO BREAK AWAY FROM THE EURO IN FULL VIEW, LED BY GERMANY... EXPECT NO EAST-WEST COOPERATION IN THE ADVENT OF THE NEXT STRONG VIABLE CURRENCY SYSTEM USED FOR TRADE PAYMENTS... IT WILL EMERGE FROM THE EAST GRADUALLY... WATCH FOR WESTERN RENEGADE NATIONS TO JOIN THE EASTERN ALLIANCE. $$$
In an important discussion with the Voice and other trusted colleagues (like a staff meeting online), a tough speculative question on European Union breakup was posed by the Jackass. Fortunately a rich lively discussion followed, my desire met. The focus of attention was on which nations in Europe would break away, break ranks, and defy the European Union, the US warlords, even NATO. The question was also posed with the IMF Special Drawing Rights currency basket as a potential site for reform, meaning additions to the basket with the Russian Ruble, Chinese Yuan, Gold & Silver. The issue was to identify which nations would wreck the EU from within. The answer came quickly from the Voice, as Germany, Finland, Austria, and the Netherlands. The Jackass shared an opinion that the Reformed IMF SDR was a dead vehicle never to leave port, since the Ukraine War had caused such bitterness and division. The Kremlin would not cooperate with any Reformed SDR as defined by Ruble addition, out of anger and suspicion. Russia and especially China would never agree to anything remotely close to the suggested weightings within the new SDR basket. Also, the reform movement had almost zero chance of succeeding as long as BRICS were active. The topic of derivatives came up also, in the context of Germany pulling the plug (Jackass concept), causing the Western banks to topple in a contagion.
The Voice went on to say, "Germany needs to leave the Euro currency in order to save the Euro and European Union. Once that happens, the EU will become just a rancid backwater pool of losers and clowns. With no more subsidies and transfer payments from Germany, all most assuredly will go bust. Agreed, the Super SDR is dead, and will not get off the ground. Derivatives are actually irrelevant at this point. Everything is royally screwed up already. The United States is doing all a great favor by acting as an implosion accelerator. The sooner things get wrecked and driven into the ground, the better, since it allows for a reconstruction under different conditions. The US and West by frantically trying to stay afloat, are wearing themselves out to the point that once the real change comes, they will be exhausted to the point where they are useless and irrelevant in playing any part in the next chapter whatever." The departure of Germany & Friends would permit the Euro currency a hefty devaluation, urgently required to save it. So he believes the major financial markets are broken beyond repair, with the US wizards exhausted to the point that they have depleted resources, depleted integrity, standing over irreparable platforms.
The Jackass reaction to comments by the Voice were quick and energized. It is interesting that his Group of Four was precisely those four nations to break away from the Euro, mentioned in 2009, but with an unknown time frame in the future. He cited Germany, Finland, Austria, and the Netherlands five years ago for creating a Nordic Euro with possible gold backing. The Nordic Euro initiative might have made progress in the elite renegade backrooms, but they probably were delayed in order to join forces with Russia & China. Bear in mind that the initiative might soon be revived, since might soon depart the EU. Instead, the foursome will join the BRICS currency launch. The entire broken fiat currency regime requires a grand overhaul, a reconstruction. It cannot be a Super Sovereign Reformed IMF SDR basket, even if it includes the precious metals. The desperation would be visible and acute, if the US, UK, and EU tried to force it through. Even if it was forced into position, the reformed SDR basket used as a banking reserve currency (with special queer bonds) would surely not last more than 12 months, and certainly not 24 months before it failed in magnficent style. Keep in mind what can be called the Second Law of Sound Money: a paper money regime cannot replace a failed paper money regime.
When the Jackass offered that the Kremlin will jump straight to the BRICS currency backed by Gold & Silver, bypassing any flimsy Reformed SDR basket, the Voice offered our collegial group a simple reply of YES!, in confirmation. My suspicion is that the Voice is in charge of some individual component or has a certain role. More comments on the flimsy alternative are justified. A campaign to include Ruble, Yuan, Gold & Silver into the Reformed SDR would give the appearance of appeasing the Kremlin. Two advantages or potential control levers would be seized by the West: 1) peg Ruble to an unjustified low exchange rate level, 2) peg Gold to a desired low level of value. In my view, a Super SDR is a dead deal, never to come online, never even to make it to the discussion table. Russia & China want no part of a temporary patch currency regime, like FOREX on crutches. It all sounds promising and encouraging. The deeply ugly reality is that the USGovt has caused a vicious proxy war that has effectively created a firewall in several regions of the world, resulting in economic wreckage and lost prestige. The USFed, Wall Street, Bank of England, London Centre, the Euro Central Bank, and big European banks might have spent a great deal of time in hidden meetings to promote the Reformed IMF SDR basket, but in all likelihood it will never happen. Furthermore, the Russia & China (R&C) tagteam seem challenged already. They are slow in developing the BRICS Gold & Silver currency, since so many platforms are required.
Team R&C are not in a hurry. The Chinese delayed the full convertibility of Yuan currency that would rest on a broadly defined capital account. The Russians are busy reacting to the many sanctions, building piece by piece the new system components, like SWIFT bank transaction system, energy payments in Ruble and Yuan, credit card integration of UnionPay, and debt rating agencies. The Voice has informed that R&C are content to rely upon a new strategy just adopted, to let the Western financial structure implode, from its sovereign debt that cannot be financed (with QE bond monetization), its insolvent banks (reliant upon QE and narco money laundering), its broken FOREX currency system (propped by derivatives), its strained control room for managing all the above plus stock markets (despite London Whale exposure sightings), and more. Team R&C will wait the West out, especially since the Ukraine War is a powerful sign of desperation on the US, UK, EU side, which is increasingly being perceived as the Axis of Fascism, with help from Israel. The failed financial structure will grease the skids for the US to slide into the Third World. The fascist trees known as financial structures are crumbling rapidly beyond repair or sustenance. So time is not on their side, even if they have significant resources, and mercenaries paid by narco funds.
The Jackass belief is that Germany will soon hit the conclusion of the deadend alley, and decide to take firm action. They have two choices, A) to continue following the war directives with sanctions against Russia which will wreck their economy, or B) to break away and work with Russia & China on a return to the Gold Trade Standard but contending with a powerful bank system collapse. The Germans have decided on the latter path, to deal with the bank system damage, according to two sources. Expect possibly for the Germans to scuttle some important mid-sized banks. The reaction will be a string of bank failures in Greece, Italy, Spain, and Portugal that would overwhelm the Euro Central Bank. The result would put incredible strain on the monetary inflation mechanism and bond monetization device. The hyper inflation would reach into the $trillions quickly, maybe well over $10 to $20 trillion within months after lies were cleared, since derivative payments would not be cleared. Much hesitation might be felt by the insolent renegade EU member nations for fear of booby traps set by London & New York bankers via derivatives on their home grounds. They might know in advance that their banking systems would risk rapid implosion in a breakdown. Yet the Voice believes this derivative threat is not a trigger issue, since the entire bond and currency and bank systems are broken too badly. The derivatives are an aftermath issue, with resulting ruin. What comes is a broad breaking ranks from the King Dollar Court.
A final observation. Russia & China are rumored to have turned down the IMF SDR proposals made last year. The consequence was the Ukraine War, with hidden proxy elements working on the US Fascist behalf, complete with over 200 US sponsored groups operating in Ukraine by the end of last year. THE UKRAINE WAR WAS LAUNCHED MOST LIKELY BECAUSE RUSSIA & CHINA REFUSED TO ENLIST IN THE IMF SUPER SOVEREIGN REFORMED BASKET OF CURRENCIES, WHICH WOULD HAVE SPAWNED SPECIAL BONDS USED IN THE BANK RESERVES SYSTEM. The Rothschilds (major owner in almost all global central banks) exacted their revenge, a call to arms. Russia & China have trumpeted their own call to arms, in a return to the Gold Standard. Gold will win, wearing a silver vest. R&C have no more patience or willingness to work with the Western Cabal. There is no turning back in either party's view. The objective that runs with credence is the need to ring fence the Western banks, eventually to isolate them, and finally to ignore them as irrelevant. It is the stuff that wars are made of. The truce might hold.
The European Union is dead, held together by force and extraordinary measures, all heretic or illegal, certainly perverse. For an interesting and thought provoking viewpoint, check the essay "The Ultimate Demise Of The Euro Union" by Vronsky (CLICK HERE). He points to breakdown factors such as overblown government bureaucracy, unpayable government debts, constant skein of massive bank bailouts, lopsided responsibility for the robust Germany to pull the poor South along, and the revival of bank failures. Vronsky concluded, "The only salvation for investors in the EU is Gold." A return to the Gold Standard will come by evolution, imposed by nature over the rubble. It will arrive on the trade settlement side, and force its will on the banking reserves system.
Colleague DonaldS pitched in. "China does not seem to wish for full RMB convertibility. That is the ultimate job of the BRICS Bank and the new currency. I never thought the RMB would be either a reserve or a convertible issue for deep debate. The interim objective seems to be direct currency exchange in trade payments, which does not involve convertibility. To be clear on upcoming events, the Shanghai Gold Exchange plays a very big role as a center for currency clearing in exchange for gold. One must wonder if the dollar will be exchangeable there."
◄$$$ THE MAJORITY OF GERMANS WANT MORE INDEPENDENCE FROM THE UNITED STATES, WHICH AROUND HALF THE NATION DISTRUSTS... THE SLEDGE HAMMER HITS THE WEDGE, THE HARDY STUMP TO SPLIT. $$$
Great change in sentiment is here. The majority of German citizens insist on less dependence upon the United States in terms of their national security and sovereign diplomacy. The major survey was done by the German Marshall Fund research group. The resulting details were that 57% of respondents within Germany wishing for a more independent leadership, a substantial rise from only 40% back in 2013. The rejection divorce is more clear with a direct question, as just 19% of Germans claim they want a closer relationship with the United States. On a broader survey across Europe conducted by Transatlantic Trends, 50% of respondents opted for a more independent security relationship with the United States, which is up huge in a veritable revolt. The figure was a mere 8% last year. At the same time, 70% of respondents view Russia unfavorably. In Germany, a positive opinion of international policies of the Obama Admin dropped a staggering 20 percentage points from 76% to 56%, with 38% claiming to be in open disagreement with his policies. The Obama approval ratings are much lower in the United States.
The US and Germany have been at odds in a spying row since Edward Snowden absconded with data from the USGovt National Security Agency in June 2013. In October, it was revealed the NSA had been spying on German Chancellor Angela Merkel calls since 2002, as well as members of German Parliament. Regular hearings have taken place by their committees regarding NSA espionage which extends to corporate trade secrets. Russian President Putin has been releasing information at frequent intervals. A recent release in August saw two US agents unmasked, then expelled from Germany amidst heightened tensions. They were acting as double agents within the German state security apparatus, and passing secrets to US intelligence contacts. They were exposed by Putin. In response to the espionage scandal, Germany promptly expelled the Berlin CIA chief. These are major breaks in relations. The USGovt has been treating its key allies as distrusted enemies, just like Nazis do, because the US leaders are nazis. The anti-American sentiment is growing, and has played a significant role in public perceptions of the Ukraine crisis. Therefore a broad reluctance has been bred among many Germans to side with the United States. Distrust is rampant. See the Russia Today article (CLICK HERE).
◄$$$ A GERMAN CHEMICAL PLANT EXPLOSION MIGHT INVOLVE FOUL PLAY, LIKE LANGLEY HANDS IN RETALIATION... IT IS THEIR STYLE. $$$
The giveaway hint is the timing. A powerful explosion rocked a chemical waste facility near Bremen in Northwestern Germany. People were being warned to stay indoors and to prepare to evacuate. More than 14,000 people were urged to close the doors and windows of their homes in Ritterhude near Bremen. The explosion sent choking clouds of toxic fumes spiralling into the night sky. Casualties were very minimal. Over 300 firefighters and 60 police were called to the scene. The origin of the chemical plant blast is unknown. Germany has been tilting toward the East in many ways, leading to a risk of Eurasian Trade Zone birth and launch of a new Gold-backed currency. One must consider the possibility that the Langley crew was involved, since this is their modus operandi. The Langley criminal caste might believe Germany needs a deterrent. There are easily dozens of precedents. See the UK Daily Mail article (CLICK HERE) for numerous photos and a video.

CONFLICT GROWS BETWEEN THE BUSY GERMANS AND THE LACKADAISICAL FRENCH, THE BONE OF CONTENTION BEING AUSTERITY AND LOOSE DEBT PROVISIONS... IN FRANCE, THE ANTI-AUSTERITY CAMP IS GROWING... IN GERMANY, PATIENCE IS ALMOST GONE. $$$
A poll by IFOP in France revealed that 85% of the French population do not want President Francois Hollande to seek a second term in 2017. His approval ratings have hit an all-time low, with just 13% responding that he is doing a good job (lower than Obama's ratings). He is the most unpopular French president in the entire post-WW2 era. The survey was done for the French weekly La Journal Du Dimanche. A ripe 50% of those polled did not think that the French president was delivering on his promises. This figure seems low. Heck, perhaps 90% of American Blacks would say the same of Obama. Unemployment in France is approaching a record high. Even though under fire, Holland has no plans to quit, prepared to remain in office until his term runs out in 2017 (stated in the recent NATO summit in Cardiff). He has been harshly criticized for failure to revive the moribund French Economy. He does not know how, since a socialist moron.
The misery was compounded when a former partner published a book in exposure. Valerie Trierweiler described the 60 year-old Hollande as being dismissive of the poor, which contradicts his status as a socialist president. She wrote, "With the release of every new poll, I watched him disintegrate. He needs to find someone to blame for the drop. It could never be him, so it had to be others and me." Hollande has lost many of his core supporters from the liberal left of the political spectrum, but he has also suffered from discontent within his own cabinet. In late August, the French Govt was dissolved despite having being formed just four months earlier. France is a gross embarrassment, caught in humiliation. They quit after ministers criticized Hollande's plans for more taxation and spending cuts. Led by former economics minister Arnaud Montebourg, they instead suggested tax cuts in order to increase spending power and help revive the economy. This is the quintessential error of liberal economics, as higher taxes reduce tax revenue collected and broadly hamper the economy they wish to drain like legions of parasitic insects. At the same time, Montebourg has been a loud critic of European austerity and demanded that the French Govt cease taking heed of the obsessions of the German right, in his words. Even their smart guys have a blind side. See the Russia Today article (CLICK HERE).
Conflict grows between producers in Germany (industrious) and the desperate in France (debtors). Among the ruling Socialists nitwits in France, many believe the blame for their current troubles does not lie with themselves or their policies, or with their unwillingness to push through structural reforms. Rather, they blame Germany's austerity policies in Europe. The anti-austerity camp is growing as Merkel becomes more isolated. A big rift is growing. New European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has joined Hollande and Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi in promoting a flexible interpretation of the stability pact rules. Conclude much more government debt to come, as well as consequent central bank relief channels loaded with toxic money. The USGovt and the Intl Monetary Fund likewise support the loose monetary position. The German Govt does not, thus the rift, and one more reason for Germany to exit the European Monetary Union.
The investor mindset among the Germans is at odds with the privileged mindset among the indebted French. Germany is sick of funding the French. The latter continues to demand debt finance from the former, even easy money in the form of Euro Central Bank bond monetization, to finance their yawning debt. Germany does not want to suffer the ill wind effects of the EuroCB inflation, namely higher cost structure. Germany is sick of funding the socialist quagmire in France, but the big German banks continue to hold over 90% of French Govt debt. Thus they cannot easily boot them. For additional details on the growing strain between Germany and France, see the Spiegel article (CLICK HERE).
◄$$$ HUNGARY PRESIDENT ORBAN CALLED OUT THE UNITED STATES AS MORALLY AND FINANCIALLY BANKRUPT, TURNING ON THE MASTERS IN CASTLES... A DEFIANCE IS SPREADING ACROSS EASTERN EUROPE (HUNGARY, POLAND, CZECH)... THE ALLIANCE WITH THE USGOVT IS SEEN AS WORTHLESS AND DANGEROUS... THE EXCEPTION IS POLAND, AS CLUELESS POLAND REMAINS LOYAL THE USGOVT FASCISTS IN CONTROL OF THEIR PUPPET STRINGS... THE UNITED STATES WILL LOSE ALL OF EASTERN EUROPE. $$$
Beware of the Return of the Magyars. Even the Soviets found them troublesome. The worst nightmare of the Kiev Regime is not only losing three key regions to Novorossiya, but facing a simultaneous uprising elsewhere. The NAF separtists in Ukraine (Novorussian Armed Forces) and allied Russian uprising in the Carpathians backed by Hungarians poses a double threat. The Kiev Nazis face big trouble with their own neighboring nations. Enter Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, a new thorn in the US-EU side, as resistance to the higher order has come. Orban delivered a notable speech in July as a direct challenge to the US overlord role in Europe. Orban refused to support more sanctions against Russia over Ukraine. More importantly, he directly denounced the US dominance of Europe and the EU subservience to a declining American Empire. Besides suggesting the United States is a superpower in cultural and economic decline, Orban added an intellectual element by suggesting Hungary could learn much from the rising BRIC nations. He hinted that his nation could learn from the Turks also, who have modernized their economy despite operating under the shadow of the authoritarian Americans.
Orban joins Putin in calling out the sinister castle dwellers (supra-national elite) and vile control freak warlords found in the Fortune 500 funded foundations, the many political tilted and motivated think tanks, and the NGO groups (non-govt organizations) that cultivated Central European politicans like former AEI employee Radek Sikorski. He has served as Minister of Foreign Affairs in Donald Tusk's cabinet since 2007. The Polish politician is married to the Anne Applebaum of the Washington Post. In the recent months, Sikorsky has had a change of heart. He has criticized the Kremlin, but now calls the US Alliance worthless. Sikorsky claims his country's leaders gave the US a blow job (his words), and the US is a pack of losers, where the US-Poland alliance is worthless. Whereas he was caught on tape bitterly telling a fellow Polish politician (unaware anyone was listening) that Poland has sexually serviced the USGovt and received nothing in return, Orban has turned on his former handlers and calls them out, exposing their roles as foreign agents of influence and as occupiers of his country in pursuit of globalism goals. These are harsh hardened positions. The United States will lose all of Eastern Europe in support, given the passage of time.
As background, Orban was educated at Johns Hopkins Univ and was trained at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI). He defies the European Union, which is fracturing plank by plank, piece by piece, crack by crack. One more, former Czech Prime Minister Vaclav Klaus has called the European Union the Fourth Reich. That is precisely what it is, in alliance with a post-9/11 Fascist United States following the Patriot Act (Fascist Manifesto). See the UK Guardian article (CLICK HERE) and the UK Telegraph article (CLICK HERE) and the BBC article (CLICK HERE), as well as the central Vineyard of the Saker article (CLICK HERE) that ties it all together.
A Hat Trick Letter subscriber from Hungary added some comments, a very nice background description on a few fronts. He responded to certain pointed questions from the Jackass. "Forget about any armed Hungarian supported conflict. That will never happen. We will never get involved like that. This is 100% certain. Also, Orban's life is not threatened at all in my opinion. Orban not only has courage but brains also. He will never let our revolution go beyond a point where his life or our cautious progress would be put in jeopardy. Orban does openly call our struggle a freedom fight against the European Union. He even went so far as saying at the Turkish business forum that the Turkish model is exemplary to us. How lucky are the Turks not having been accepted into the fold of the EU all those years! What Orban did (utilizing his two consecutive 2/3 parliamentary majority, not an accident) was that he got the banks and multi-nationals to fill in the gaps in the budget caused intentionally by the previous traitor leadership. They even laid a seemingly fatal minefield by a widespread mortgage scheme that was a sort of variable rate mortgages. With colossal effort Orban sent the whole mess back to the sender [probably Swiss banks]. It took four years to achieve that and now the minefield is neutralized.
According to Moody's, the Hungarian bank sector will lose an estimated 1 billion EUR over this. The EU is trying to shut our mouths by providing money for long overdue development. You can also look at this like returning some of the loot. [EU Commissioner] Barroso was here and signed the agreement last week. Accordingly Hungary is due to receive between 2014 and 2020 a subsidy of 34 billion EUR. In return he was given honorary professorship at the Corvinus University in Budapest. [As a side note,] all ethnic Hungarian minorities including those from Slovakia, Serbia, Croatia, Romania, and Ukraine were given the opportunity to acquire Hungarian citizenship and passport in due time, another huge achievement of the Orbán cabinet. Some of those fools who were too lazy or cowardly to take advantage of that opportunity are now rounded up for military service in Ukraine."

## GERMAN DISTRESS DISGUST UPDATE
◄$$$ PARTNERSHIP WITH RUSSIA IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN NATO PRESENCE IN THE BALTICS, IN THE OPINION OF A LEADING GERMAN MILITARY EXPERT... MEANWHILE, THE USGOVT APPARATCHIKS CONTINUE TO FAN FLAMES WITHOUT BASIS. $$$
Harald Kujat is a retired German general officer of the Luftwaffe. He served as Chief of Staff of the German armed forces (Bundeswehr) from 2000 to 2002, and as Chairman of the NATO Military Committee from 2002 to 2005. He is therefore qualified to speak on regional matters of state. Kujat believes that strategic partnership with Russia is more important than NATO's presence in the Baltic States. He stated, "The task is to improve cooperation with Russia for settling crises. For the first time after the Cold War, we have all instruments for this. It would be pity to lose them. The Russian-NATO Founding Act calls for resolving a conflict in negotiations when security interests of one party or both parties are affected. NATO does not do this." Kujat is directly accusing NATO of running badly off course, astray from its integral charter. NATO is not a war mechanism, but rather a peace device. He made reference to a big error committed by NATO during the US incursion of the Russia-Georgia conflict in 2008, as the alliance froze worthwhile concrete programs. He openly disputes the notion that Russia is more an enemy than a partner for NATO. As footnote consider a Strat Risks article (CLICK HERE) that indicates some stress in the supply chain for Germany fighter jet aircraft in military use. The German Air Force is experiencing a parts shortage, requiring frequent cannibalization of working units.
Clown puppets placed in office by the USGovt continue to spout nonsense and fan a bellicose spirit. Earlier, resident USGovt Fascist representative issued a statement. NATO Deputy Secretary General Alexander Vershbow said the allied group had been compelled to treat Russia as more of an enemy than a partner. One must wonder if they are compelled since they are stuck on a track with deceit, lies, pilferage, genocide, and propaganda, followed a funded mercenary-led coup d'etat, but do not wish to come clean. Vershbow is an American ambassador and holds his current post in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. There is more from the puppet stage. Estonia president Toomas Hendrik Ilves wants NATO permanent bases in the country. He was educated at two US schools, Columbia Univ and Univ of Pennsylvania. In a sense he is an export of US Academia and think tank archipelagos. Look closely at the political think tanks and one finds CIA funding, NSA funding, and USDept State funding, and more. See the ITAR-TASS article (CLICK HERE).
◄$$$ GERMANS FED UP WITH NATO ALLIES & ENDLESS US WARS... THEY PERCEIVE DEEP AMERICAN DISHONESTY... THE TIDE OF SENTIMENT IS FAST TURNING. $$$
Former German Defense Secretary Willy Wimmer was firm in his position against the NATO lies, constant propaganda, and desires for endless wars. He stated, "When Merkel realizes how the German people feel about Ukraine, she must be very realistic about it. The people here in German are fed up with NATO lies. They are fed up with the wars organized by the United States here and there and everywhere. Therefore it is totally necessary to provide President Poroshenko with a window of reality. We are not interested in having the ongoing conflict in the eastern part of Ukraine. We should do the utmost to find a peaceful solution. Most people agree with the words of Angela Merkel, that weapons should be silent in the Ukraine." These are plain words in opposition to the USGovt and its abusive obedient pit bull pet NATO. Both Ukraine and Germany agree to create a restoration fund for the ravaged eastern provinces. Germany does not want to pay for the aftermath of war, as directed by the US through NATO forces. Wimmer stresses that there is too much propaganda with respect to its neighbors, and agreed that the US side is filled with rhetoric. He gave special emphasis to NATO lies on three occasions. He was clear that many people will be happy when the NATO Secy General leaves office. See the YouTube video (CLICK HERE).
◄$$$ MANY ARE THE IMPORTANT RISKS AND WEDGES WITH RESPECT TO GERMANY, AS GREAT CHANGES ARE COMING SOON... GERMANY HAS ALREADY BEGUN TO WORK WITH RUSSIA & CHINA (VIA BUNDESBANK) ON THE BRICS CURRENCY AS SOLUTION, FOUNDED ON THE RETURN OF THE GOLD TRADE STANDARD... GERMANY WILL TURN ITS BACK ON BOTH THE UNITED STATES AND THE EUROPEAN UNION, IN PARTICULAR ON NATO. $$$
The Germans openly distrust NATO and its leadership. They will eventually depart the NATO Alliance. The Germans openly dislike the Russian sanctions and their impact on the German Economy. They will soon interfere with further sanctions that inflict wounds upon themselves. The Germans are openly angry and disgusted at the NSA espionage in their highest levels of government, in addition to their Parliament. They do not speak outwardly about their anger for NSA corporate spying efforts, but exectives are concerned about trade secrets and strategic plans being compromised. It is now a common practice to submit cell phones and smart phones into a box, to be kept outside critical meetings in the country. The Germans openly disapprove of planned Euro Central Bank bond monetizations of debt, in programs pushed by Prince Draghi. The Bundesbank has been in opposition for months with the ECB head, but cannot seem to halt the hyper inflation policies. The economic damage is well understood by the Buba.
The Germans are openly angry and disappointed by the New York Fed for refusing to return their gold. The official German account has not been repatriated after over three years of time, when first requested in 2011. The Jackass just learned that the German Govt made the official repatriation request after learning of the USGovt long-term war plan with Ukraine, and Russian isolation strategy from Europe, to be conducted by NATO forces, with the USMilitary at the helm. They were told of a 2013-2014 timeframe, which is now. The Germans disapproved of the entire plan, thus the gold account demand.
The German Govt was alarmed and quietly outraged at the prospect of a war to put their energy supply from Russia at risk, and to undermine two decades of commercial ties and development. The Germans are openly angry at duplicity in attacks by the USGovt on Deutsche Bank, their nation's flagship bank. The Washington uber-lords of injustice have taken aim at major Swiss and French banks, imposed their will, and next aim their sights at D-Bank for prosecution. The hypocrisy is thick, since the New York and London banks are the ringleaders of banking criminality and market rigging, which are part of the charges against D-Bank. As a result of this overflow of anger, resentment, and perceived duplicity, the German Govt has decided and has begun actions to work with Russia & China on a USDollar alternative for trade and therefore banking. It will be a Gold-backed BRICS currency. The German Govt though Bundesbank offices will pursue the return of the Gold Trade Standard. The Americans can defend themselves from the broken financial dams, the ravaging floods of bank defaults and failures, and rejected abandoned USDollar vehicle. The USD will run aground.
The Germans will join the BRICS, with the full announcement to come much later than the actual constructive engagement with meetings, planning, and construction. The Germans have made a significant investment in Russian infrastructure in an unusual manner. They have been on contract to update the Russian contract law, to make it more modern, and to develop the legal system further. This is no small task. Putin is serious about raising Russia to the next level as commercial giant in the era of globalization. His nation depends upon it. The Russian Economy depends upon it. The standard of living inside Russia depends upon it. China depends upon it also. Even the sturdy launch of the Gold Trade Standard depends upon it.
◄$$$ DEUTSCHE BANK HAS CALLED FOR BUBBLE MANAGEMENT IN CLEAR TERMS, MAINTAINING THE GREAT WESTERN ASSET BUBBLES, NO EQUIVOCATION... THE ENTIRE WESTERN FINANCIAL STRUCTURE IS A BUBBLE BUILT UPON MOUNTAINS OF DEBT AND RECENTLY UPON GRANDIOSE BOND MONETIZATION... IT WILL COME UNDONE DUE TO COMPLEXITY... THE DERIVATIVE ROOM IS BROKEN, NO LONGER IN CONTROL... SOME CRITICAL BLEMISHES ARE SHOWING. $$$
Some amazing words from the Western bank domain. Deutsche Bank's Jim Reid stated, "The bubble probably needs to continue in order to sustain the current global financial system and the necessary future de-leveraging. However, with yields moving ever lower in many parts of the world in recent times, partly due to weak growth, and with debt levels still moving higher, the chances are that most government bondholders are unlikely to achieve a positive real return over the medium to long-term from this starting point. Inflation or even the risk of sovereign restructuring will likely prevent this." An open admission that touched on a few huge risks, all unmanageable to be sure. Tyler Durden summarized by saying either the bubble goes on, or the current global financial system implodes. No middle exists to reduce the widespread bubbles. All continuing efforts with papered over holes, officially called bailouts and reflation (to make it sound sophisticated) will render the global middle class more impoverished. The hidden ravaging effects of monetary inflation are well known, but ignored since QE was installed on a permanent basis. All hail QE to Infinity. All hail ZIRP Forever. Reich Finance is fixed. See the Zero Hedge article (CLICK HERE). The Voice commented that "It will be the complexity that becomes unmanageable. It will blow the system up or better described, complexity will cause it to implode." The Western maestros do not have the capability, manpower, or programs required to sustain the systems indefinitely.
The Jackass thought the extreme complexity would have caused a string of severe accidents to occur only two to three years beyond the Lehman failure in 2008. We must give the Boyz credit for holding it together so long. They have made some big errors, such as in showing the Belgium Bulge of USTreasury Bonds (pus), in the London Whale sighting (derivative leakage), such as allowing Failures to Deliver in USTBonds (from overused derivatives), and in forcing confrontations in Cyprus and Syria (hidden attacks on Russia and Gazprom). Analysts must begin to integrate into the pathogenesis the intentional motivated purposeful scuttling of European banks. The focal point trigger might be Deutsche Bank. They are angry at the United States. The Germans want some distance from the US on a mounting basis. They will not permit their economy and industry to be wrecked. So they must cut the cord with the US & UK, even the European Union, although painful. The German banking system will pay the price, as much of it will fall into ruins. Deutsche Bank is the weak link since it does not lie squarely in the US/UK domain. Complexity will bust the financial dam wide open to be sure, probably begun by the D-Bank breakup. The Jackass firm belief is that Germany will cause havoc with NY & London Boyz by scuttling a mid-sized German bank. Then the dogs of financial war and toppled firms will be on, spreading to London and New York by way of the vulnerable banks in Southern Europe, namely the PIGS plus France. In most respects, France resembles the PIGS more than Germany or Austria or the Netherlands.
Two major points of weakness are D-Bank breakup and the Failures to Deliver in USTreasury Bonds. If the USGovt seeks fines and penalties from D-Bank, vengeance will be heaped upon the US/UK. This giant monster cannot be restructured or reduced. It is out of control, and still growing, since no effort to resolve the crisis has come or will come. The Boyz will not permit the big banks to be liquidated, since doing so would burst the entire derivatives mountain. Also, the excessive reliance upon the Interest Rate Swap derivative contract has caused internal problems. The artificial demand created by overused Interest Rate Swap derivatives to keep USTreasury Bond yields down, continually forces the big banks to purchase USTBonds that are largely unwanted, and worse, not available in supply. Thus the failures to deliver USTreasurys. It is not from excessive demand, but rather artificial demand. A bizarre situation has arisen where more artificial demand for USTreasurys exists than the USGovt issues in securities. The control room extends to Deutsche Bank, from their acquisition of Bankers Trust.
The entire German financial system is in a position to wreck the US/UK banking system. This bears close watch. Little Greece could not be permitted to fail, since many off-exchange derivatives are routed throughout their banks as well. Nothing can be permitted to fail, not even Banco Espiritu Santo in Portugal. The entire class of Credit Default Swap paper is now seen as worthless, while the entire class of Interest Rate Swap paper is now seen as dangerously weak. All these devices are like structural cable lines that are badly frayed or rusted. A single firecracker tossed into the barrel sets off the whole structure built of dry rags and paper. Then the daisy chain implodes, with contagion spreading rapidly across the entire banking system. The great Western asset bubbles will not go bust from insolvency, or even contract default, but rather from the complexity which the US, British, and Western Europeans have instilled within the support structures.
◄$$$ SOON EXPECT TO HEAR MORE ACCOUNTS OF THE EISENHOWER DETENTION CAMPS ORGANIZED INSIDE GERMANY FOLLOWING THE END OF WORLD WAR II... MULTITUDES OF GERMAN MILITARY SOLDIERS DIED OF DISEASE AND EXPOSURE IN THE CAMPS, PERHAPS ONE THIRD OF A MILLION... A NEWS BLACKOUT HAS BEEN IN PLACE FOR ALMOST 70 YEARS. $$$
The Jackass does not wish to provide too much information. At least three sources confirm the existence of a network of detention camps to contain German Military soldiers at the conclusion of World War II. No desire was present in 1945 to permit them to run freely within the German population. They were treated with disdain, in a clear gesture of vengeance to dole out similar treatment as with brutality levels probably not as horrible as the Nazi Death Camps. Three main causes of death dominated. Many died from disease, others from exposure, as some camps were open sky. Some died of malnutrition, from very inadequate nourishment. One client reported that he has German friends who testify to the Eisenhower Detention Camps and their existence. Another client with whom a few conversations were actually conducted, told me a story of his uncle being stuck in such a camp for over 18 months, only to be released by the kindness of one of the officers in charge. A door was left open in the middle of the night. Apparently, quite a few German soldiers walked out in this manner. The death count from the detention camps is a well kept secret in the United States, but it is believed to be between 200 and 300 thousand. This is common knowledge in Germany. The truth will come out, as people talk, and revised historical accounts will be revised again and set straight. The resentment by Germans for numerous actions is reaching a critical level to force change.
## UKRAINE NEARS END OF REGIME
◄$$$ THE OBJECTIVES FOR THE UKRAINE WAR HAVE THREE PRINCIPAL ELEMENTS THAT ARE QUICKLY DISCERNED... THEY SERVE MULTIPLE PURPOSES, BUT THE ELITE UNIFORMLY... PREVENTION OF A RUSSIAN MARRIAGE IS THE MAIN TACTIC... DESTRUCTION OF THE EUROPEAN ECONOMY SEEMS THE OVER-ARCHING STRATEGY, WHICH WILL ENABLE CREATION OF A TOTALITARIAN SYSTEM OF UNELECTED CZARS TO THE EXTENDED CONTINENT... IT REQUIRES COLLAPSED FINANCIAL SYSTEMS AND ECONOMIES TURNED TO RUBBLE. $$$
The primary immediate objective is to obstruct the Russian unification with Europe in what is commonly called the Eurasian Trade Zone. Blocking energy supply is the method for the interruption, but only from threats. The method used so far has been bank sanctions and business obstruction. Russia supplies the many European economies with a long list of assorted industrial and strategic metals. The US & EU are using their strong suits, financial control rooms (even though from insolvent banking systems). George Orwell wrote about Eurasia, and several political analysts discuss the concept of a Oceania versus the grand united continental mass of Europe and Asia. The United States and United Kingdom form the Oceania, with Latin America in tow. The United States elite wish to prevent the union, since it means great isolation for the US. The plan is going badly, since Russia & China have practically merged, and work vigorously to compensate for the financial blockades. Also, an independence movement has spawned. Scotland is pushing for independence from the UK, while Catalon is pushing to separate from Spain, and Latin America is proving to be the Russian & Chinese new colonial commercial ground and food market.
The second objective relates to permitting fracking energy projects, separate from the Gazprom network of natgas pipelines. Many are the US-led fracking projects intended to relieve Europe of energy dependence upon Russia. They will achieve short-term goals, run dry in a couple years (like all the rest), and destroy the groundwater systems as consequence. The big Western energy firms, in firm consortium with the US firms, are running roughshod over local environmental movements and peaceful barriers where projects are hindered. Some exploitation is clear, since USGovt VP Biden's son is involved in an energy firm, hardly with competitive bids involved. The energy giants wish to conduct a hit & run on Ukraine and their neighboring Eastern European nations. The environment is not a concern.
The third objective relates to enabling virus-oriented genetic development within the food supply. The theme is known as Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) foods. The corporation at the center is the ubiquitous Monsanto. What Microsoft is the personal computing, Monsanto is to the food supply, evil and uncompromising. They are not simply a rogue firm, but a diabolical firm that targets humanity along a deep nazi agenda. They promote their genetic research for advanced seeds that resist disease and drought. However, viruses are central to the next chapter, which plans to condition the human species for virus delivery, which can be turned on and off. One can only imagine the agenda, like to pacify the public, to reduce intelligence, to induce psychosis, to breed alienation from family. For those who saw the movie "Bourne Legacy" (not with Matt Damon, but rather with Jeremy Renner and Rachel Weisz), recall the control mechanisms used on the Langley agents by means of viruses. The delivery of genocide type viruses depends upon the widespread promulgation of virus conditioners, done in the food supply. They are building blocks.
A Jackass potential client sent a message last week, a man from Iowa who observes well the agri business in his state, although not a farmer himself. He related the following. His area is surrounded by GMO's and CAFO's (Confined Animal Feeding Operation). In all, 95% of the US soy is GMO and 85% of the US corn is GMO. So humans ingest the formula mix from grains and meats. The livestock ranches contribute toward destroying the water and air systems with their putrid excrement. Remarkably, the topsoil in Iowa is 45-50% gone, eroded in the last few decades due to aggressive conventional farming techniques, petroleum based fertilizers, stripping the land of trees, and other harmful practices. Family farmers have disappeared in the last 10 or more years, sadly. He concluded, "You should know this, since you have mentioned superior Iowa land several times in interviews. Ukraine is a huge target for Monsanto and others like it, to promote the GMO project. The European Union kicked out the GMO's purveyors in recent years, but the Ukraine is fresh territory for exploitation." Yes, easy exploit from absent government, capitalizing on chaos, in a land that exports grain products. If it is not Ukraine central bank gold stolen from chaos, it is energy projects and GMO projects at work, taking advantage of the situations. As footnote, although labeling of genetically modified organism (GMO) products in the marketplace is required in 64 countries, it is not required in the United States. No distinction between marketed GMO and non-GMO foods is recognized by the US Food & Drug Admin. The USDept State and the Bush Crime Family are pushing Monsanto on many nations like Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru.
The Jackass believes the highest level objective for the Ukraine War is to destroy the European Economy. The USEconomy has unstoppable momentum toward collapse, marred by systemic failure, assured by monetary policy (QE & ZIRP). The USGovt elite wish to be joined by the EU Commission elite (unelected) in a manner that introduces a grand totalitarian state, the grand goal of the supra-national fascists living in castles who run governments and banks like with puppet strings. Installation of a broad fascist state requires a collapsed financial system and economies turned to rubble, both a fascist specialty during grandiose pillage and implementation of broad poverty. The NWO is their calling card. Even US VP Joseph Biden delivered a disturbing commencement address at the USAir Force Academy this spring, where he advocated the NWO to a totally dumbass crowd that had no farking idea what he was talking about. He referred to a global fascist state, as in a positive progressive realignment. Unfortunately, history shows that citizens become cattle with no rights, and those who object are crushed. My firm belief is that the elite are using narcotics to create the totalitarian state foundation, buying nations and bribing their leaders. They are fighting in Ukraine with mercenaries paid most likely by Langley narco funds.
◄$$$ LOSSES FOR THE UKRAINIAN ECONOMY APPEAR CRIPPLING AND SEMI-PERMANENT... THE INDUSTRIAL SECTOR IS RAVAGED, THE FARM SECTOR WRECKED... THE REGIME WILL HAVE AN IMPOSSIBLE CHALLENGE TO SURVIVE THE HARVEST SEASON WITHOUT A COLLAPSE. $$$
Push back the earlier Jackass forecast made in March of a collapse within three months. The June target came and went (wrong forecast). Private sources indicate that some Kiev Regime officials are bugging out, leaving town with their families and certain possessions. They do not wish to be present when the pitchforks and hanging parties arrive, the betrayed citizens beyond full of rage. The published results by the Goskomstat (Federal Bureau of Statistics) on the Ukraine Economy during the first half of 2014 are incredible to the naive, but anticipated by the astute. The national GDP supposely fell 4.5%, and is expected to fall further by another 7.0% by the end of the year. Both figures seem off by a factor of two to four times. The frigid statistics do not address the specifics like concealed losses to the industrial sector in the form of wrecked factories, flattened businesses, and ransacked shops. Future GDP depends on capital equipment, which is in shambles. What has been destroyed is the actual possibility of a Ukraine Economic recovery in the future. All the Ukraine attempts to render harm to Russia have mortally wounded Ukraine. Their trade turnover with the Russian Customs Union has fallen by 30%.
The economy is devastated. Given the lost routes in the western provinces like railways and bridges, given the pockets of flooded areas in the same western provinces, do not expect harvest to come to market in usual volume. The farm fields were reportedly 80% planted, according to some local sources. However, bringing to market requires farm equipment, trucks, truck parts, diesel fuel, able bodied men, and open routes. The revised Jackass forecast is for the Ukraine Govt (the fascist criminals installed by the USGovt, from Mosswipe posts) to dissolve by December. They cannot survive the harvest catastrophe. The public is in revolt here and now.
The details are shocking. What has happened is the effective collapse of the industrial sector, a process actually accelerating. During the period from January to June, the volumes of industrial output declined by 5.8%, a staggering 12% plummet in July alone. However, all the individual niches are much worse, therefore falsified aggregate figures. The most profound damage was suffered by the coal sector (-28.7%), the automobile production (-23.8%), the chemical output (-22.2%), the oil refining sector (-15.9%), the rubber industry (-13.8%), metallurgy (-12.3%), and furniture production (-12.5%). Ravaged by war, the Lugansk and Donetsk regions have lost 56% and 28.5% of their industrial bases respectively. The crisis of the component supply from Donbass in turn led to the collapse of the industrial giant Zaporizhia Automobile Building Plant (ZAZ). This enterprise saw its production volume fall by 98.9%, and by October will probably stop all manufacturing, leaving 21,000 workers out of the street. They will likely fight against Kiev. Most notably was the near total wreckage of industrial output in export trade to Russia, whose decline ranged from 25% to 70% over the different sectors. For example, automobile production lost 40% of all exports, metallurgy lost 32.6%, and agriculture lost 37%, of exports to Russia. The Kiev Regime goal wanted to destroy the industrial potential in the eastern provinces, those closely tied to Russia. Their military factories have either been destroyed or moved to Russia across the border, according to the St.Pete contact Jaroslav. It is a difficult relocation of industrial plants, some involving military equipment sold to Russia.
A disaster has befallen the Ukraine Economy in its agricultural business. In order to prevent a Hryvnia currency collapse, the desperate Kiev psychos have exported the bulk of national grain output. Grain exports in 2Q2014 increased by 89.4% in comparison to the previous year. To entirely undermine the farm sector, the Yatsenyuk policies canceled taxation subsidies for those agro-industries with a turnover of 20 million Hryvnias, and with farm land mass of 3 thousand hectares. The result is almost 90% of the agro-producers have lost their tax privileges. Medium sized agro businesses account for 60-65% of farm output, and small agro businesses account for only 10-15% of the Ukraine farm sector. Worse, the Hryvnia currency devaluation has been harsh, resulting in a 40-50% increase in the cost of production. Gone is Ukraine as the legendary Grainary of Europe. Mission Accomplished for the Nazis, whose wreckage crosses many borders. Asset stripping is the only energized activity in the land. Look for Yatz and Young Biden to be present at auctions for acquiring large bankrupt Ukraine farms. It is unclear how quickly Ukraine can snap back after President Poroshenko ends his rule and has his life abbreviated. See the Slavyangrad article (CLICK HERE).
◄$$$ UKRAINE COMPLETED ITS SPECIALTY, TO STEAL... THE IMFUND LOAN HAS VANISHED TO FOREIGN ACCOUNTS... THE REGIME COLLAPSE IS ASSURED, TO BE REPLACED BY A SIMILAR CRIMINAL GANG RUN BY A DIFFERENT CORRUPT OLIGARCH (LESS RADICAL, MORE PRACTICAL). $$$
Independent analyst Michael Hudson from the Univ Missouri does a fine job of painting the background for the Intl Monetary Fund life support loan to the Kiev Regime. He omits the condition of IMF loan grant, being military defense to prevent the western provinces from falling into Russian control. The analyst professor includes a wide range of interesting nuggets of information, none of which is promising for the preservation of the current criminal fascist regime. The IMF loan is legally an odious debt, being made to a military junta and stolen by government insiders. The column by John Helmer called "Dances with Bears" calculates that of the $3.2 billion disbursed to the Ukraine Treasury by the IMFund at the start of May, a whopping $3.1 billion had disappeared to offshore accounts by the middle of August.
Not only did the Kiev Regime permit the pilferage of its 33 tons of gold at the central bank as almost its first act and deed, it stole the IMF funds given in loan. They will probably claim the funds are merely being kept safe, like the gold bullion. The default is obvious. The thefts are universal. The current thief in power as Ukraine President very soon will evacuate office, and run for his life. His days might be numbered after broad accusations of betraying the national interests. It was not clear to the Jackass that it had any national interests. See the Zero Hedge article (CLICK HERE). The chocolate king might not make it through October, the end of harvest season.
There is hope. The hard copy journal "Johnson's Russia List" (no online version) offers a forecast from the ground level in Kiev. "A defeat in war frequently leads to regime change. The spectre of a coup is once again roaming the streets and squares of Kyiv. Surviving National Guard fighters are threatening to turn their weapons on Poroshenko. A third Maydan (Independence Square protest movement) is taking shape, which is to sweep aside the present regime. The instigators of this Maydan are militants from the punitive battalions created with Kolomoyskyy's money. It is obvious that the oligarch is playing his game against Poroshenko. Subordinate to him, Kolomoyskyy has quite a strong private army capable of carrying out a coup." The oligarch in wait Ihor Kolomoyskyy is a known neo-Nazi whose clan includes Ukrainian nationalists. He has fielded his own formidable private army. So expect a less radical nazi caretaker gang of pillagers to replace the current radical nazi gang of pillagers, with better kept popular promises perhaps. They will steal back the current regime's thefts.
The nation will become like a Hamburger Hill (Vietnam War term of constant change in control, with uniform destruction). The real change will come in one or two years time. This is truly a lost lawless land. See the Naked Capitalism article (CLICK HERE). A short rejoinder by the Voice. "Poroshenko will be personally bankrupted, losing all and everything he has stolen over the past couple of years. Then he will be hunted down and finished off. His ticket has already been punched and the contract has been awarded." Ouch! My expectation is for aggrieved competitive oligarchs to order the hit, those with motive to take control of the country. It is doubtful that Putin is part of the contract hit. Look to the ousted president or his oligarch friends. Putin is likely a lion in wait for the next round.
◄$$$ STEPHEN LEEB BELIEVES PUTIN HAS WON IN UKRAINE. $$$
Independent veteran analyst Stephen Leeb wrote, "Clearly the world is a mess right now. We have the chaos in Ukraine and the Middle East. As far as the situation in Ukraine goes, Russia won. They got exactly what they wanted. They have stopped fighting, and they are now in a position where Eastern Ukraine is not going to be part of Russia but they are going to be more or less independent. It is a very big deal that Putin won in Ukraine. You also see Russia moving closer to China, forging a strong alliance. Now we see that China is moving to have closer ties with India. Chinese President Xi is skipping a trip to Pakistan and heading to India instead. So we are seeing this move to consolidate an alliance in the East. China is going to want to have a lot more control over how much energy it buys and at what price, which also means some sort of Gold Standard will emerge in the East.
The United States should be doing what the Chinese and the Germans are doing. These countries are making long-term plans. This is why you have to be buying Gold & Silver if you are in the West, because once the world does begin to change, that change can come incredibly fast. If anything, the situation is getting worse for the West and better for the East. Unfortunately that really is the big picture. So for investors, the core of their wealth should be in physical Gold & Silver, because the West's policies are doomed. This is how they can protect themselves and their families from the coming financial turmoil the West will have to endure." See the King World News interview article (CLICK HERE). Several months ago, the Jackass called the Ukraine Regime change and ensuing war a trap set by Putin. The trap has closed, the criminal regime trapped, the US-EU exposed, the population feeling betrayed as expected. The next stage will be for a thieving caretaker regime, which presides over a Kremlin-German pact. The natgas pipelines must flow, and the Russian Naval port in Crimea must be preserved. Those are the realities.
◄$$$ EUROPEAN PROFESSIONAL SPECIAL FORCE TROOPS ARE FIGHTING AGAINST THE KIEV REGIME, IN DEFIANCE OF THE NATO WAR INITIATIVE... THE ALLIANCE IS IN CONTRADICTION AND TURMOIL... THE NATO ALLIANCE IS EFFECTIVELY DEAD, ALTHOUGH MUCH HAS TO PLAY OUT. $$$
Special private forces have entered the complex equation. The big new twist which took the Jackass out of his chair was the professional hardened soldiers who have joined the Ukraine Liberation Movement (or whatever it is called), taking up positions against the NATO troops, against the Langley-Soros mercenaries. They are fighting against the Ukraine Regime in Kiev, against the fascists. These professional volunteer soldiers have captured some American Blackwater mercenaries, and are conducting interrogations. Later come the perp walks and criminal parades with photo ops, surely blocked in the US Press but not likely blocked in all European countries. For these special forces from Germany, France, Netherlands, and Britain to show such extreme defiance is testimony to the broken nature of NATO. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization in my opinion is dead, as in dead kaput. The United States violated the treaty long ago in two key ways. The US placed ballistic missiles on the Russian borders, calling them defensive. The US has used NATO bases to distribute heroin for over 20 years, with the last ten years being accelerated from the Afghan source. The USGovt probably uses its Eastern European Embassies as war staging operation centers and munitions logistics sites. Since the USMilitary invasion of Afghanistan, at the time under the stated purpose of building a Chevron oil pipeline in a land without oil resources, the heroin production has risen 14-fold.
NATO is dead, and the big new questions are whether Germany will tolerate USMilitary soldiers in occupation of its land at Ramstein AFBase, and whether Germany will permit further usage of the NATO base to distribute heroin to its population. Broken treaties are not new for the USGovt, which for two centuries has broken them at will, whenever it serves a greater purpose, like to manifest destiny, and more recently to incite conflict. Atrocities and genocide are part of the American fabric at its highest offices. No internet blackout has been seen for this pro-liberation mercenary action. See the BBC article (CLICK HERE), the Washington Post article (CLICK HERE), the Russia Today article (CLICK HERE), and the Agenfor Media article (CLICK HERE). Special thanks to the Voice for tipping off the story before it even hit the alternative media, from his sources on the ground. The Western press might indirectly or tacitly imply the troops are ragtag or disorganized or low quality, when in fact they are hardened professional soldiers who are sick of the USGovt war machine. They wish to halt the destructive forces directed by Langley and Brussels.
◄$$$ THE MINSK PROTOCOL CALLS FOR UKRAINE TO BE DECENTRALIZED, SPECIAL STATUS FOR LUGANSK, DONETSK... PROVISIONS CALL FOR NEW ELECTIONS IN THE EASTERN REGION, AMNESTY, EXIT OF FOREIGN MERCENARIES, AND OPEN CORRIDORS FOR AID... THE THORNY EU-UKRAINE TRADE DEAL HAS BEEN DELAYED FOR OVER A YEAR, WHICH WILL PREVENT THE NATION FROM LOSING BROADLY APPLIED PRICE DISCOUNTS FROM RUSSIA. $$$
The Organization for Security & Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) is taking the lead initiative. It has produced the 12-point roadmap which follows up beyond the important September 5th truce signed in Minsk. It appears to be sticking. It says that Ukraine must adopt new legal provisions, allowing for a special status for Lugansk and Donetsk regions, as well as to hold early elections in both regions. The Protocol on the Results of Consultations of the Trilateral Contact Group was signed in Minsk by principal parties. The objective is to maintain a ceasefire and cessation to armed conflict, which is the US-EU objective (to foment conflict). One provision states, "To decentralize power, including through the adoption by Ukraine of law on provisional procedure for local government in parts of Donetsk and Lugansk regions (law on special status)." The peacemakers are working to strip Kiev of total power and dominion.
Another key provision requires for early local elections to be held, in view of the new special status of both regions. There will be independent regions, a buffer zone, rather than scorched earth (as is the US-EU plan). Then Kiev must continue an inclusive nationwide dialogue. The roadmap also implies an amnesty for anti-government forces in Donbass, Donetsk, and Lugansk regions of Ukraine. The truce pact calls for all illegal military formations, military equipment, as well as militants and mercenaries to be withdrawn from Ukraine. That is tactful legalese for foreign mercenaries funded by Langley and Soros. The truce pact includes monitoring of the ceasefire inside Ukraine and on the Russia-Ukraine border by international OSCE observers, the freeing of all prisoners of war, and the opening of humanitarian corridors for aid purposes. Economic development plans are to commence soon afterwards. See the Russia Today article (CLICK HERE). Much work remains on enforcement of the truce, and progress toward reconstruction both politically and industrially. The Ukraine crisis remains unresolved, with violations at high risk. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was the champion of the truce resolution. See the RIA Novosti article (CLICK HERE). For additional Western perspective of a clear nature, see the Paul Craig Roberts essay (CLICK HERE). Russia is emerging in diplomacy.
The Kremlin is optimistic about the prospect of truce. Mikhail Fedotov is the head of the Kremlin's human rights council. In a positive note to the Russian news agency Interfax, he stated "I think we are already seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. If an agreement is reached on a ceasefire, it will mean the path is open to normal negotiations, normal political dialogue. The important first step is a ceasefire." However Lavrov is having to negotiate admist intense US & UK propaganda and attempts at disruption.
The EU-Ukraine trade deal was delayed as concession to Russia. Some actions taken are intended to reduce the inflammatory conditions. The European Union and Ukraine have agreed to delay the implementation of their free trade pact until the end of next year. The move is a concession to Russia, which had complained its industry would be hurt by the deal. Europe would allow Ukraine to delay putting a landmark trade deal into effect, after Moscow threatened to block Ukrainian goods to Russia. Tariffs are a big issue and bone of contention. The EU said it would allow Ukraine to maintain its current tariffs until early 2016, but it would still have to undertake major economic and political reforms. Postponing the deal helps address one of the issues at the heart of the crisis. Russia had threatened to slap import tariffs on Ukraine goods starting on November 1st. The Kremlin did not wish to see EU products flow through Ukraine, and flood Russia. By joining the EU, the Kiev Regime would lose its Russian price discounts across the board, not just for natural gas. See the DW article (CLICK HERE).
◄$$$ THE COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS HAS PULLED BACK FROM THE BRINK, SAYING THE UKRAINE CRISIS IS THE WEST'S FAULT... A MINOR SPLIT MIGHT BE EARLY IN THE MAKING AMONG THE AMERICAN FASCISTS. $$$
The prestigious influential Council on Foreign Relations has suffered a gut check, a reality check, and a hard swallow. Among their ranks, filled with fascists of a different flavor with more sartorial gait, John Mearsheimer offered an apology, calling a mea culpa. A small schism might be forming between the elite fascist brain trust at the CFR and the operational trust in Langley. Mearsheimer wrote the following, a surprising admission.
"According to the prevailing wisdom in the West, the Ukraine crisis can be blamed almost entirely on Russian aggression. But this account is wrong: the United States and its European allies share most of the responsibility for the crisis. For Putin, the illegal overthrow of Ukraine's democratically elected and pro-Russian president, which he rightly labeled a coup, was the final straw. Putin's pushback should have come as no surprise. After all, the West had been moving into Russia's backyard and threatening its core strategic interests, a point Putin made emphatically and repeatedly. Elites in the United States and Europe have been blindsided by events only because they subscribe to a flawed view of international politics. They tend to believe that the logic of realism holds little relevance in the 21st Century, and that Europe can be kept whole and free on the basis of such liberal principles as the rule of law, economic interdependence, and democracy. But this grand scheme went awry in Ukraine. The crisis there shows that realpolitik remains relevant, and states that those who ignore it do so at their own peril." See the Foreign Affairs article (CLICK HERE).
Ukraine is a stunning defeat for the USGovt, which can claim only some wreckage in the buffer zone as their success. The Jackass suspects an agenda is at work that goes beyond the Council on Foreign Relations, touches on a higher level strategy like the collapse of Europe, and the installation of energy and agri businesses in a vast carpetbagger operation that the CFR was not privileged to learn about in advance. Or else, the CFR is playing games with essays to avoid attack. The Jackass belief is that components of the Ukraine War strategy and Russian isolation planning came precisely from the Council on Foreign Relations. They are morally corrupt, and likely hypocrites.
◄$$$ UKRAINE AS ORGAN HARVEST SITE... SOME INDICATIONS POINT TO UKRAINE BEING THE POSSIBLE SITE OF MASSIVE ORGAN HARVESTING... IT WOULD FIT THE REPUTATION OF THE NATION. $$$
Ukraine has many blemishes in its sordid reputation, which include white women trafficking and Nigerian scam bank accounts. Add another, black market human organ trafficking. The story focuses on unattended limbs tossed as refuse. The forests near Zaporozhye is the site of more than a ton of human remains recently found, primarily severed limbs. To be clear, due to quantities stumbled across, some versions suggest that these are the limbs of soldiers in the Ukraine War that were severed after amputations in the hospitals. Normally, soldiers do not lose limbs in such huge volume, not since the 19th century wars, like the US Civil War. Other theories have circulated, that these are the remains of victims of war who were disassembled into organs in the war zone. Direct attention at the artillery attacks on civilian zones in Eastern Ukraine by the Kiev Fascist Regime, possible slaughters in villages, and their punitive operations. They consider the Russian ethnic communities to be sub-human. It is not clear why all of human debris was dumped in the woods and not burned in some crematorium. Most likely, because it would cost more to properly treat, kind of like toxic industrial waste dumped on the side of highways in the middle of the night.
A well informed colleague (unnamed here) added, "Over a month ago reports circulated that over 3500 Ukie soldiers were Missing in Action. Also several mass burials of Ukraine soldiers were prepared hastily. In addition, there have rumors in the past that former Ukraine President Yulia Timoshenko was in the organ harvesting business." Consider the picking of human organs (liver, kidney, lung, heart, gall bladder) to be no different from rooting over city dumps and through back alley city dumpsters. See the Colonel Cassad account (CLICK HERE). The entire story is consistent with the Jackass theory, forecast, expectation. Look for the Langley hand in the FEMA Camps, bringing about an illegal black market in organ trade, if and when the camps are filled. No laws will stop them. These are nefarious nazis, total psychopaths who use war as business, wrecking nations, ruining economies, stealing wealth, with no consciences.
## SANCTIONS GAME BLOSSOMS
◄$$$ EUROPE WILL BAN PURCHASE OF RUSSIAN BONDS, WHILE RUSSIAN GAS EXPORTS REMAIN MOSTLY UNTOUCHED. $$$
Europeans are barred from buying new Russian Govt bonds. The measure is combined to the Western ban on the debt funding of most Russian corporations. With the arrival of many Chinese funding facilities and deals, the EU ban will have only a minor impact. So China will halt the majority of USGovt Bond purchases, then buy an ample supply of Russian Bonds required. Russia & China to be joined at the hip, which means the Great Bear cannot be isolated or wounded easily. It spans 13 hours in timezones and is a major commodity supplier. See the Zero Hedge article (CLICK HERE).
◄$$$ EU OFFICIALS ARE PURSUING SANCTIONS ON ARCTIC ENERGY PROJECTS... THEY ARE TARGETING THE ROCKEFELLERS AT LAST... EXXONMOBIL IS PROBING INFLUENCE OF ANTI-RUSSIAN SANCTIONS ON MAJOR JOINT PROJECTS WITH ROSNEFT. $$$
The new round of sanctions will target Arctic exploration prospects. The basic motive is punitive toward Russia, but also there is a desire not to share sensitive technologies and services with Russia. Such exports must be authorized by member states if the products are destined for deep-water oil exploration projects in Russia. The US and EU are going after the Rockefeller enterprise at Exxon Mobil finally. It will be full of intrigue how it is spun, and how the reaction hits the power center, since the Rockys are US kingmakers. The Exxon oil giant is assessing the impact of the US sanctions against Russia on the joint project with Rosneft in the Arctic, which has been under contract since 2011. The deal is to develop the East-Prinovozemelsky field blocks in the Kara Sea and the Tuapse Trough in the Black Sea. In exchange for a share of 33% of the development in the Kara Sea, the giant Exxon Mobil has agreed to cover the majority of costs associated with exploratory drilling, which totaled more than $3.2 billion. It is not a huge contract in volume terms, but very important in symbolic terms. The impact on Russian new output is not clear.
The Wall Street Journal noted that the new round of sanctions would not affect Exxon's near-term perspectives in Russia, as the amount spent on exploration drilling is relatively small for an American company. However, the same journal reported that newly set limits would prevent Russian oil companies from raising funds with maturities longer than 30 days in the EU's capital markets. Transneft, Rosneft, and the oil production subsidiary of the giant Gazprom would suffer the effect. New sanctions banning technology and services for Arctic, deep sea, and shale exploration could significantly curtail Russia's future oil production capacity. In question is the extent to which Russia requires technology to be shared by Exxon and other Western oil firm. The Exxon-Rosneft project in the Russian Arctic will continue, the current focus on the $700 million Universitetskaya-1 well in the Kara Sea. It is estimated to contain 9 billion barrels of crude, equating to $900 billion. Exxon is assessing its position, in particular on drilling rights across 11.4 million acres in Russia, after it signed a $3.2 billion exploration pact in 2011. They might follow the law, but they will make phone calls to the White House amateurs, demanding some resolution and pullback. The Royal Dutch Shell ventures in Russia might also be affected. The are reviewing the latest sanctions to assess the potential impacts on their business. British Petroleum (BP) is concerned about its 19.75% stake in Rosneft, the largest direct foreign investment in Russia. Other European oil companies that are in line to suffer the new sanctions include French Total and Norwegian Statoil. Expect the USGovt to flinch first, since in an incredibly indescribable weak position. See the RIA Novosti article (CLICK HERE) and the Russia Today article (CLICK HERE).
◄$$$ EUROPE WILL SANCTION ROSNEFT, GAZPROM NEFT, AND TRANSNEFT, EVEN THE GIANT SVERBANK... THE RUSSIAN ENERGY FIRMS ARE FINALLY TARGETED, BUT NOT THE GAZPROM NATGAS BUSINESS... MORE SANCTIONS HAVE BEEN DIRECTED AT THE MAJOR RUSSIAN BANKS. $$$
Minimizing the US-EU sanctions against Russia can no longer be done. Until the last couple weeks, their vast energy firms have been avoided. No longer. The energy titans Gazprom, Rosneft, and Transfneft were untouched. Finally, Europe will impose sanctions on firms that deliver energy product to European nations. The stupidity and folly is beyond description and reason. Europe has decided to directly threaten the stability of its own energy imports, as Russia accounts for 30% of German crude oil usage and 40% of German natgas usage. Sanctions will finally be imposed on the big three: Rosneft, Gazprom Neft, and Transneft. In game theory, this is called a major defection round. Suddenly the stakes for Russia and thus Europe have risen, and got all too real. Putin will respond with targeted or staggered reduction in gas flow to Europe. Watch the bond between Russia & China grow more firm, in both trade and funding, even exploration and pipelines. See the Zero Hedge article (CLICK HERE). The Jackass believes natgas by Gazprom is not included in sanctions, so that when Russia curtails natgas flow, they can be blamed for severe economic damage to Europe. The propaganda game is being managed.
The USGovt has also slapped sanctions on the major Russian banks. The affected banks include Sberbank, Vneshekonombank, VTB, Gazprombank, and Rosselkhozbank. The US is working on a doomed strategy based upon war of attrition, while the US is insolvent, debt ridden, and mired in a massive economic recession. The public statements out of WashingtonDC are loaded with rhetoric, exaggerations, and strange goals to damage Russia, with spurious logic and ethical rationale. Resistance by European nations might come quickly. See the RIA Novosti article (CLICK HERE). The US nation is no longer about commerce, trade, business formation, and economic development. Instead, it is about power, war, sanctions, division, and punitive measures like bank fines. While the East deploys win-win strategies, the US attempts to use lose-lose strategies. The United States has lost its way, as it faces systemic failure. Nations with huge resources that are working toward gold-backed money represent an enormous threat for the nations that rely upon fiat paper currency like the US, UK, and Europe. Sanctions are the only non- military way of stopping or slowing them down. Fiat paper has become immediately self-contaminating. In fact, sanctions isolate the Western nations, which must swallow their fiat poison paper and suffer accelerated capital destruction.
◄$$$ BEFORE THE FULL FORCE OF RUSSIAN SANCTIONS, THE GERMAN TRADE SURPLUS HIT A RECORD IN JULY... WITH ANY RECORDED DEFICIT WILL COME SHRILL OUTCRY FOR CHANGE IN NATIONAL POLICY... SOME ANALYSTS EXPECT THE NEGATIVE IMPACT FROM RUSSIA TO BE OFFSET ELSEWHERE BY THE GERMAN JUGGERNAUT (NOT LIKELY)... LOSSES FROM RUSSIAN BUSINESS IS BEING TALLIED, ALREADY OVER EUR 3 BILLION IN THE FIRST SIX MONTHS OF 2014... GERMANY RECORDED EUR 76 BILLION IN TRADE WITH RUSSIA LAST YEAR, WHICH IS AT RISK. $$$
The German Economy showed a trade surplus at new record levels in July on the back of booming exports. Germany exported goods worth a total of EUR 98.2 billion (=$127 bn) in July, a 4.7% gain over June, according to the federal statistics office Destatis. Imports declined by 1.8% to EUR 76.1 billion. Hence the seasonally adjusted trade surplus rose to EUR 22.2 billion in July from EUR 16.4 billion in June, a 35% jump in a single month. Maybe some exports took place before anticipated sanctions were on the books to interrupt commerce. Exports to the European Union were up 9.6% and exports to the 18-member EuroZone climbed by 6.2%. Exports soared by 15.9% to nations outside Europe. Hope spreads that the positive momentum from Q2 will carry into Q3, but the headwinds are from sanctions to Russia and global recession. Overall in 2Q2014, the German gross domestic product (GDP) had contracted by 0.2% in a rare bout with recession. The BayernLB economist Johannes Mayr believes that any weakness in exports to Russia and Ukraine had been more than offset by exports to other countries. The Jackass believes the Russian dent from export reductions will hit harder than the analysts expect, as they are sell side guys. See the France24 article (CLICK HERE).
Most German companies in Russia oppose sanctions as wrong policy tool. German enterprises are sustaining serious losses due to the sanctions and war between the West and Russia. The Handlesblatt newspaper estimates that German companies have seen a EUR 3 billion reduction in their profits in Russia over the first six months of the year. The Stada pharmaceutical firm saw a EUR 113 million profit before tax in Russia last year, which accounted for 45% of its total profit. In the face of lowered profit in forward guidance, the firm suddenly lost 25% of its stock valuation. The fate of Metro has changed. It manages Metro Cash & Carry networks in Russia, and the Media Markt appliance shop. Its turnover in Russia is EUR 4.3 billion with a staff of 20,000 people. It is at risk of serious decline. The pharmaceutical company Bionorica realized a EUR 78 million profit in Russia last year, while their business in Russia consists of 33.5% of total turnover. It is at risk. Several other recognized company names are in a similar high risk situation. They include the machine maker Claas KGaA for tractors and combine harvesters, the Deutsche Bahn railway group, the Henkel chemical giant, the Adidas shoe & sportswear maker, and the MAN SE maker of trucks, buses, and engines.
The German automobile giants are at greater risk than the above cited firms. China and East Asian carmakers are fast taking German market share. For instance, Volkswagen decided to suspend car assembly at its plant in Kaluga for 10 days, starting on September 8th. The VW firm considers Russia to be Europe's number one growing market. In aggregate, last year's trade turnover between Germany and Russia accounted for EUR 76 billion. An estimated 5000 German companies operate in Russia with the total investment volume reaching EUR 20 billion. About 300,000 jobs in Germany depend on economic ties with Russia. See the ITAR-TASS article (CLICK HERE).
◄$$$ THE KEY REMAINS GERMANY, A NATION OF TWO MINDS... THE BANKER POLITICIANS DEVOTED TO THE EU COMMISSION AND NATO ARE IN CONFLICT WITH THE COMMERCIAL & INDUSTRIAL SECTOR FOCUSED ON ECONOMIC VITALITY AND LABOR MARKET HEALTH... MERKEL PROVIDES THE WARMONGERS LIP SERVICE, WHILE SHE SEEKS AN EXIT FROM OFFICE... MERKEL MIGHT HAVE SET A TRAP FOR THE POLITICAL FORCES SUBSERVIENT TO THE US & EU. $$$
Chancellor Angela Merkel continues to push obediently for implementation of Russian sanctions. The pressure felt from the US, from EU Commissioners, and from NATO is fierce. However, the more intense domestic pressure will prevail, from the corporate giant chiefs who run their economy. Politicians do not work for a living, since often deadweight topheavy whores. The conflict is incredibly polarized. Merkel appears to be the driving force for additional sanctions aimed at Russian oil. The USGovt helm wishes to cripple Russia's oil industry, but the policy hurts Germany the most. The policies are suicidal and will not last. See the DW article (CLICK HERE).
The Voice follows German politics closely, with many contacts and personal interest. He summarized, "Merkel is looking for a fast exit from her current job. She is a product of the East with Stasi. It is incredible how she was put inside Kohl's team and made her way from there all the way into the Chancellery. There is a power struggle going on behind the curtain right now, since Germany's future is being gambled away by these idiots in Berlin." It is high time for Germany to stall the USGovt initiatives more effectively. Angela (aka Mad Cow) might be setting a trap for her local politicians and bankers, much like Putin set a trap for the US in Ukraine. Regardless, Germany remains the key to sanctions and war resolution which will strive to preserve the German Economy.
◄$$$ POLAND REPORTED THAT RUSSIAN GAS DELIVERIES TUMBLED BY 45% AS EUROPE CONTINUES WITH NEW SANCTIONS TO LAUNCH... POLAND WILL RECEIVE SPECIAL HARSH TREATMENT FROM THE KREMLIN... SO FAR THE REASON FOR ANY CUTBACK IS STATED AS RETALIATION FOR REVERSE FLOW... POLAND WILL BE THE BIGGEST LOSER IN THE UKRAINE WAR AMONG THE NEIGHBORING NATIONS, AS WELL AS FROM AIR FORCE LOSSES. $$$
In early September, technicians at Gazprom were supposedly troubleshooting its systems in an apparent ruse to cover some reverse retaliation. Finally Poland is on the receiving end of the war, but on the commercial side. The nation has a crazy position and policy, whereby it serves as staging ground for the Langley & Soros mercenaries who invaded Ukraine. It opened its facilities for NATO staging as well, in insane directives. Poland complained that up to 25% of its usual gas deliveries from Russia had been cut. Russia indirectly hinted that the cutbacks were a result of improper Reverse Flow that supplies Ukraine in a manner that violates contract provisions. In effect, Kiev has found another way to siphon natgas to meet its needs without paying Gazprom. The reaction was swift, as Poland officials promptly admitted it would halt reverse flow to the ravaged country. Only days later, the Polish financial website Biznes reported that things went from bad to worse in Russian retaliation gestures. It seems Poland claimed a 45% shortfall in Russian natgas imports, as of September 10th.
Russian energy giant Gazprom halted the natgas supply to Ukraine after they stopped paying their bills in April. At issue was a $4.5 billion outstanding bill to Russia for gas received. This prompted EU nations Germany, Poland, and Slovakia to enhance return flows in the gas network, not a simple task. This alteration in piping infrastructure allowed the redirection of their own deliveries of Russian gas back to the Ukraine. The embattled nation sourced over half its gas from Gazprom before the war. The energy giant warned in June that attempts to circumvent Russia's gas embargo to Ukraine would result in supplies to European countries being cut. Here we are three months later, and the threat seems to have been realized. After three days of gas cuts, Gazprom still denies there has been any reduction in deliveries. Games are being played on both sides.
Either lies swirl or else Ukraine is quietly illegally siphoning off gas destined for Europe. Nothing changes with Ukraine criminality and contract violations. Gazprom faces its biggest decline in European gas business in five years, where sales are the source of 40% of revenues. The forecast is for sales to decline by over 10% to around $55 billion this year, company officials report. See the Zero Hedge article (CLICK HERE) and the Breitbart article (CLICK HERE). Below is shown a man siphoning natgas destined for Poland, using a handy dandy human converter device installed in his throat, storing it as liquefied gas in the jugs for quick retreat. Nifty clever indeed.
The Voice has been adamant about no notable Gazprom cutoff of energy, as they will honor contracts. However, by targeting US-EU waterboy Poland, they remove some of reverse flow to Ukraine. My belief is the Gazprom cutoffs will increase on a limited basis, maybe to other Eastern European nations, in order to convince them of the South Stream project wisdom. The Poland cutoff could really be retaliation for hosted staging grounds on UKR military action, but called preventative for reverse flow as managed propaganda. As footnote, numerous Polish Air Force fighter jets have been shot down over Eastern Ukraine. Poland is heavily into the Ukraine War effort. Reports come that the Novorussian Armed Forces (NAF) keep encircling the Polish mercenaries and wiping them out. Then they proceed to shoot down many of their fighter jet aircraft dispatched to the war. Poland will be the biggest loser outside Ukraine in this war. They backed the wrong horse.
◄$$$ SLOVAK AND CZECH OFFICIALS HAVE URGED THE EUROPEAN UNION TO CUT SOME SANCTIONS AGAINST RUSSIA... THEY EACH FACE SERIOUS BUSINESS LOSSES. $$$
Prime Minister of Slovakia Robert Fico does not approve of some sanctions against Russia. He stated, "We have addressed the EU, asking them to remove some clauses from the sanctions proposal. We want a number of products included in the list to be exempt from sanctions, so that we can continue exporting them to Russia." Simple request. Various ministers spoke against the proposed export ban on goods that can have both military and civilian use, aimed for Russian private companies. In the line of fire are some Slovak machine tool makers, who face bankrupcy if sanctions become effective. The Slovaks are not alone among Eastern European nations in their objections. The Czech Republic Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka said that Prague will submit formal statements that indicate disapproval of the new EU sanctions proposal, since they could trigger high economic losses for his country. Indeed, escalation of sanctions is a very risky business. See the RIA Novosti article (CLICK HERE).
◄$$$ FRANCE CAVED AND CANCELED THE SYMBOLICALLY IMPORTANT WARSHIP DEAL WITH RUSSIA... A FIRM UKRAINE CEASEFIRE CONDITION WILL APPLY FOR RUSSIA WARSHIP DELIVERY. $$$
Francois Hollande is a limp-wristed weakling who cannot meet economic promises, disappoints his own cabinet advisors, shows disdain for the poor, presides over wreckage, and bent to USGovt pressure finally on the Mistral warship deal to Russia. If France fails to meet the contract stipulations, it faces a substantial penalty. Officially France announced that it will be suspending the controversial delivery of a EUR 600 million warship to the Russian Navy. After an emergency meeting of the national defense council, President Hollande said that conditions do not today exist, in his words. The scheduled date for the delivery of the first of two Mistral helicopter carriers is this autumn. Russia has paid for the ship and Russian sailors are already training aboard the vessel in St Nazaire on the French Atlantic coast. For two months, the French Govt had sternly resisted pressure from the United States and its EU fascist partners to suspend its delivery. In return, France will strangely expect other EU countries like Britain to drop their objection to sanctions on Russia. See the UK Independent article (CLICK HERE). Remember that Russia does not need these warships. The nation decided to toss France a bone in order to grease the loading dock ramps for return of their Czar era gold from 100 years ago. It is large volume. Perhaps the US will try to steal the gold while France cuts off formal relations in a hostile sequence. Doubtful the US will steal the Czarist gold. Putin controls Snowden files.
Hollande has refined conditions. The delivery of a controversial Mistral warship to Russia was conditional upon a ceasefire and political settlement being agreed for Ukraine. With the Minsk Peace Pact, those conditions might have been met, provided the truce stick. He repeated the deal is not canceled, only suspended, but to the point of angering the Kremlin. The contractual delivery of the ship is not due until November 1st. Outrage will come, since Russia has already paid for the ships, and Hollande just made their delivery conditional. It seems the West finds itself exceptional. Contracts cannot be altered ex-post facto. Russia stands to collect $millions, as breach of contract is a very serious offense, especially one of this size.
An official Russian Foreign Ministry statement read, "France's reputation as a reliable partner that carries out its contractual obligations has been thrown into the furnace of American political ambitions." Furthermore, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov accused Washington of trying to undermine the developing peace process. He is angry at constant distortions on Russian interference in Eastern Ukraine, when the US-EU orchestrated a coup d'etat in Kiev, an egregious violation of statecraft. Lavrov stated, "The surge in anti-Russian rhetoric that we have seen exactly when there is a very active effort to seek a political solution shows that the party of war in Kiev has active external support, in this case from the United States." Lavrov has been at the center of the truce and peace talks, in regular conversation with his French and German counterparts. See the France24 article (CLICK HERE). The lightweight Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize, or had it bought, still unclear.
