Is Germany headed for Recession ?







As the US-China trade war rages, Europe is finding that it's particularly exposed. Germany The economic powerhouse of Europe is teetering on the edge of recession thanks to the trade war between the US and China. Germany's economy relies on exports which it has shrank by 0.1% in the three months through June, according to official data published by Destatis, the country's federal statistics office. The disappointing economic data - the second contraction in four quarters - comes one day after the ZEW Survey of financial market experts showed that German economic sentiment in August dropped to its lowest reading since 2011, which is stoking concerns that the German economy could slide into recession during Q3. The industrial sector tipped the economy into contraction in Q2, and there's risk of further weakness in the second half of the year. "If there’s any good news to take from this release, it’s that services must have continued to expand, indicating patches of resilience persist." Economy Minister Peter Altmaier tried to put a positive spin on the numbers, telling Bild that Germany can avoid a recession if the government responds with the right policies. However, the Q2 data are a "a wake-up call and a warning sign," Altmaier said. "We are in a phase of weak growth but not yet a recession," he said. "The simmering trade conflicts are taking their toll and Germany’s export-orientated manufacturing sector is particularly affected" Germany needs "intelligent policies for growth," including easing the burden on small and mid-sized companies, cutting corporate tax and a "clear plan" for the complete withdrawal of the so-called "Solidarity Tax." Germany’s manufacturing industry is taking a hit from US tariffs and sharply slowing demand in emerging markets and developing markets. It is believed that the turmoil being experienced by German flagship companies Volkswagen and Deutsche Bank and geopolitical uncertainty in the Ukraine and Middle East and sanctions on Russia are contributing factors to the malaise. Growth last year was also hit by troubles in the auto industry when automakers had difficulty getting new cars certified under new emissions tests, and by low water on the Rhine River that interrupted commerce. The situation is more than just a crisis in confidence. Major chemical company BASF has announced a curb in spending and reduced profit and sales expectations going forward. German steel industry report shows that crude steel production fell almost four percent. Two major shipping companies who handle three quarters of containers into Hamburg have indicated that weaker trade with Russia and China has caused them to cut their earnings forecast. China has been busy undermining the world's producers and Germany in particular ,for decades. German manufacturers have been increasingly moving their production to China. And Germany lost 2.5 billion dollars annually worth of contract business in Russia , because The German Government went along with The US sanctions against Russia . The business community in Germany is furious with the German government and trying hard to get back to Russia. In 2018 they had record investment into Russia. The agriculture export to Russia will never recover though. Russians are on track to become an agricultural giant. Thanks to EU and US. China is already investing hard in the Russian agriculture. The bottom half of German society has not seen any increase in real incomes in a generation. The Hartz IV reforms in 2003 and 2004 made it easier to fire workers, leading to wage compression as companies threatened to move plants to Eastern Europe. The reforms pushed seven million people into part-time ‘mini-jobs’ paying €450 a month. It lead to corrosive "pauperisation". Germans are turning to soft nationalism. People on low incomes are voting against authority because the consensus on equality and justice has broken down. It is the same pattern across Europe . And when the UK and US tariffs begin. The German auto industry will be crippled and unable to repair itself. This following on from the fake emissions and auto tests the manufacturers submitted,resulting in jail time for many. Germany will no longer be able to bail out southern Europe to the tune of billions of euros. since 2015 7 million migrants came in , and 4 and half million Germans left . Two million immigrants and counting are using many resources without contributing. Germany will likely enter in a recession early this year or later this year . But it will happen.

Is China Really Headed for Recession ?







It’s interesting to hear about United States President Donald J. Trump describe China’s economy as in crisis mode and depression. For-the-record, I’m a Trump voter . I do not criticize Trump’s claims with malicious intent, but do realize that his closest political advisers have little understanding of the country. US President Trump is receiving really bad advice about China and it’s heartbreaking to witness the train wreck . It’s apparent Trump does not have deep insights on the country, but I blame his aides, because it’s their jobs to conduct more in-depth research. They seem to talk and interview experts on China, who hate the country or have a selfish agenda to provide bad insights on the world’s second-largest economy. The White House does not need to agree with more sympathetic viewpoints on Beijing, but they should at least give it a good and fair hearing. At the moment, the Chinese economy is doing fine. There’s no strong sense that an economic downturn is at hand. The Chinese remain optimistic about their financial future. China's GDP growth is still twice that of the united states despite all tactics of bullying,sanctions and tariffs. Accordingly, President Trump does not know the Real China and this explains why he had wrongly concluded the nation’s economy is enduring doom and gloom at this moment. But yes, Trump is correct to think that China’s economy may surpass the US GDP (gross domestic product), which explains why he has often criticized Beijing, because he doesn’t like losing and wants the USA to stay number one. President Trump expressed his concerns when talking with former President Jimmy Carter on the phone a few months ago. “Earlier this year, Carter sent Trump a letter with some advice about managing the U.S.-China relationship. Carter oversaw the normalization of diplomatic relations between the two countries 40 years ago. Trump called Carter to talk about it. It was the first time they'd spoken, Carter said. He said Trump told him that he is particularly concerned about how China is ‘getting ahead of us.’ Carter said he agreed with Trump on this issue.” It’s already understood that Washington fears getting surpassed by Beijing. Trump’s trade wars and other policies should be understood as part of a broad reordering of US economic and political policies, and relations with other nation States allied and adversary alike, to ensure the continuation of US global economic and military hegemony for the coming decade. America runs on cheap Chinese products. Can you imagine if America made all that stuff . You'd be paying a fortune and won't afford the lifestyle you have now. If the Americans wish to willingly make their life more expensive, and hand over Uncle Sam more power and money , that's their choice to do . Kissinger used China to ensure the success of petrodollar hegemony. Petrodollar hegemony was designed by Kissinger to help US get out of their high debt and turn US dollar as the sole global reserve currency. Kissinger helped China elite to become super rich by allowing China to be the biggest exporters to US and become the largest users of US dollars. China now has become very powerful militarily and economically, threatening the survivor of American empire. China was allowed to rise by the globalists' and they were going to make money off of the US's downfall, and China's rise. Kissinger went over to "open up" China in the 1970's, and then China was allowed to join the WTO by the "US". These are not coincidences, deductive reasoning applied can easily tell this is done by design. If American empire collapse, the anarchy will spread and America will be banana republic with nukes. A NUCLEAR EXCHANGE WILL SURELY HAPPEN . KISSINGER AND The CHATHAM HOUSE Are THE MOST STUPID PEOPLE IN THE WORLD. China's economy might slow a bit , but will not stall like the US economy. Because China produces and we do not. They Will weather the upcoming storm. We will not.

Ron Paul : The Moral/Political Corrosion Of Negative Interest Rates, With Guest Jeff Deist







The approach of negative interest rates in the US will transport us into a truly bizarro world where up is down and spending is saving. But it's not only an economic issue - there is a moral and political corrosion of our society that comes with negative interest rates. Mises Institute President Jeff Deist joins today's Liberty Report.

This is How The Yemeni Drones beat US, Saudi Billion Dollar Air Defenses







The elites only need to get away with one major false flag every couple of decades to push the populace into a war or a cultural crisis which can be exploited. This was essentially the strategy outlined by the “Project For A New American Century”, a foreign policy think tank in the 1990's made up of Neo-Cons and ghouls from the Council On Foreign Relations which called for a “new Pearl Harbor” that would give the US a rationale to enter the Middle East militarily and change the entire political landscape. As Rahm Emanuel once said, “You never want to let serious crisis go to waste...” American and Saudi military forces and their networks of advanced air defenses never detected the Yemeni drones that were launched on Saturday to strike oil facilities deep inside Saudi Arabia, proving futile the billions of dollars that the Riyadh regime has spent on them to protect its territories. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who is in Saudi Arabia to discuss a possible response to the strike with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, admitted Wednesday that the US missile defense systems had failed to stop the attack. “We want to make sure that infrastructure and resources are put in place such that attacks like this would be less successful than this one appears to have been,” he said, when asked why the Patriot missile systems deployed across the kingdom didn’t do anything to stop the Yemeni aircraft. Pompeo sounded surprised by the vastness of the operation, saying: “This is an attack of a scale we’ve just not seen before.” Saudi Arabia has bought multiple batteries of Patriot missile system which are meant to shoot down hostile aircraft or shorter-range ballistic missiles, providing what in military terms is called “point defense,” meaning they are not suitable for covering wide swaths of land. It’s not yet clear whether any of them had been positioned close to the oil sites at the time of the attack. According to The Washington Post, US weapons maker Raytheon charges up to $1 billion for each Patriot battery. The US also uses an array of powerful spy satellites and aircraft flying in the region to gather intelligence and share it with the Saudi military to help the kingdom with its ongoing war against Yemen. That system, however, proved futile when it was needed the most. “We don’t have an unblinking eye over the entire Middle East at all times,” Marine General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters in the aftermath of the attack. Russian President Vladimir Putin also pointed to the utter failure of the US defense systems during his recent trip to the Turkish capital of Ankara. Standing next to his Turkish and Iranian counterparts, Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Hassan Rouhani, Putin mockingly suggested Monday that maybe Saudis will be better off buying Russian-made S-300 or S-400 missile defense system, as Iran and Turkey have done. "And they [Saudis] need to make one clever decision as Iran did, buying our S-300, and as Mr. Erdoğan did by deciding to buy the most advanced S-400 Triumph air defense systems from Russia," Putin continued as Rouhani smiled. "These kinds of systems are capable of defending any kind of infrastructure in Saudi Arabia from any kind of attack." Iran, on its own, has developed missile defense systems that are far more superior to S-300, an acvhievement they best displayed in June by shooting down a stealth US drone over the Persian Gulf using the home-built Khordad 3 missile system. Pointing finger at Iran Perhaps that goes a long way to explain the behavior of American officials in the aftermath of the attacks, who have rejected Yemeni resistance forces’ explanations about the origins of the attack and opted instead for a more complex scenario that they hope would cover up the glaring failure of their technology. Saudi Arabia, for example, has invited experts from the US, France, Kuwait and several other countries to scavenge the attack site for any evidence that it could use to link the strike to Iran. On Wednesday, the kingdom displayed drone and missile debris it claimed were discovered at the site and argued that they resembled Iranian-made weapons. In its attempt to hide its vulnerability against Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement, Saudi Arabia has also resorted to downplaying the militant group’s combat power. The Saudi ambassador to Germany insisted that Iran had played a role in the attack and that his country kept all options on the table for retaliation. "Of course everything is on the table but you have to discuss that well," Prince Faisal bin Farhan al-Saud told Germany's Deutschlandfunk radio on Thursday. "We're still working on where they were launched from but wherever they came from, Iran is certainly behind them as Iran built them and they could only be launched with Iranian help," he said. That is more or less the same line taken by American officials, who have repeatedly said over the past days that the Houthis could not have orchestrated an attack of this scale on their own. The Yemeni resistance movement says it flew 10 drones before dawn on Saturday and successfully destroyed all the designated targets in Saudi Arabia’s Khurais and Abqaiq. They have also expressed surprise that the same Saudi leaders who attacked Yemen in March 2015 on the grounds that its missile prowess threatened their national security, are now confused by how hard the Houthis can hit back. The Trump administration has also adopted a similar stance, with Pompeo saying that there is no evidence the drones flew from Yemen. He has called the strike an act of war and promised a measured response. President Donald Trump, has also pledged a response. He ordered sanctions against Iran to “substantially increase” on Wednesday. The spectacular failure of the Saudi-American defenses was first revealed in 2017, when Yemeni forces successfully targeted King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh. Back then Saudis claimed that their Patriots had hunted the missile before it hit the target but a group of American experts debunked the claim using satellite imagery and witness accounts. Iran has time and again denied the allegations and dismissed them as part of what Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has called a campaign of “maximum deceit” that aims to cover America’s failures in confronting Iran through force and pressure. French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian has advised all sides to avoid jumping to conclusions and wait for the investigations to wrap up. “Given that there is an international investigation, let's wait for the results," he said Thursday. Germany and the UK have also called for restraint until the investigators finish their work. Japanese Defense Minister Taro Kono has also weighed in on the issue, saying he has yet to see any hard evidence that links Iran to the attacks. "We are not aware of any information that points to Iran," Kono told reporters at a briefing on Wednesday. "We believe the Houthis carried out the attack based on the statement claiming responsibility." This is not about Saudi Arabia, or Israel actually. It's more serious than that. These drones that the Yemeni are using undermine the military industrial complex that is reeling after the last two years of back to back technological fails. #1. 120 tomahawks launched at Syria and half knocked out by electronic weapons . #2. Russia announces hyper-sonic missiles . #3. MIC admits it's more than a decade away from hyper-sonic weapons of its own . #4. Drones begin proving more effective than tomahawks . #5. Allies opting to buy Russian made anti-air systems . #6. Drones now completely avoid super expensive patriot missile systems. The military industrial complex ,who actually bankrolls the likes of Bolton and Pompeo ,are in panic mode. Their expense pieces of junk are being exposed, and potential buyers are looking elsewhere.Different to the Russian S-300/400/500, the patriot system has a field of view of merely 120°, and in case of the Saudi batteries, they all look east toward Iran. Hardly anything goes ever through from that direction . The remaining window of hostile opportunities to go through undetected is thus 240°. Bingo! That's why it's the no no no it was actually cruise missiles narrative, and no no no it was actually Iran that launched it.

This Happened On Planet Earth...Sept. 2019...End Times Signs






Current Events Linked To Biblical Prophecies. Everything is unfolding just as the bible foretold. Wars, Volcanic Eruptions, Earthquakes, Extreme Weather, Christian Persecution, Violence and more! Matthew 24:3-14 3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” 4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences,[b] and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

This is why a Global Recession is Coming before the 2020 Presidential Elections







Investors across the board have grown increasingly worried that a recession is on the horizon. A survey last month found that more than 70% of economists think a recession will hit the US by the end of 2021, the Federal Reserve has signaled further rate cuts, and the inverted yield curve has flashed multiple warning signs about the state of the economy. According to a new Bank of America survey, recession fears have jumped to all-time highs. A Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAML) survey of United States credit investors found that the perceived probability of a recession in the next year spiked to 25%, its highest reading. BAML’s survey found that recession risk is now the third-biggest concern for credit investors over geopolitical risk, just behind trade and China. It exceeded the record reached in July 2016 and marked an increase of 5 percentage points from last month’s survey. As far as the credit markets are concerned, investors are generally seeking higher-rated debt in the investment-grade and high-yield markets, BAML found. This means shunning the BBB-rated part of the debt market, which sits one step above junk status. Experts have been increasingly sounding the alarm on the group as it swells in size. “In fairly dramatic fashion, high-grade investor sentiment on BBBs has soured to the point where only 33% expect outperformance on a risk-adjusted basis, down from 58% in July,” the team wrote. Corporate debt is a big concern, as so many businesses struggle with being overleveraged. In addition, high-yield cash levels are “off the charts,” the strategists wrote. More than half of high-yield investors reported having above-normal cash levels, up from 35% in July and marking the highest reading since April 2011. From its side JPMorgan predicts the next financial crisis will strike in 2020 . JPMorgan’s Marko Kolanovic has previously concluded that the big shift away from actively managed investing . “The recession’s duration is a powerful drag on returns, which should dovetail with some readers’ concerns that policy makers lack the necessary monetary and fiscal space to extract economies from the next recession,” they wrote. A decade after the collapse of Lehman Brothers sparked a plunge in markets and a raft of emergency measures, strategists at the bank have created a model aimed at gauging the timing and severity of the next financial crisis. And they reckon investors should pencil it in for 2020." In 2018 J P Morgan said " pencil in recession"... Pretty damn confident ... How did they know???? The truth is The recession/depression of 2008 never ended. They papered it over. As many of us predicted, they are going to hand the flaming bag of crap to Trump in order to usher in more big government, more socialism, etc. The only real question is why Trump took ownership of the flaming bag. He literally called it a big fat ugly bubble as a candidate.

Ron Paul Warns : Negative Interest Rates Coming to America whether the FED likes it or not .






During his farewell speech last night, Rep. Ron Paul said “our foreign policy is destined to keep us involved in many wars that we have no business being in” and these seemingly endless conflicts are waged without congressional approval and “with no complaints from the American people” who have endured more than a decade of perpetual war. “Because it’s the government that initiates force, most people accept it as being legitimate,” Paul said. Dr. Paul is warning negative interest rates will crush the global economy. The former Republican congressman , Dr. Ron Paul, says that the United States won’t be the exception when negative interest rates crush the economy. Dr. Paul is warning negative interest rates are coming, and the Federal Reserve cannot stop it. Dr. Ron Paul from Texas believes the U.S. won’t be the exception. “We will join the rest of them and go to total negative rates in hopes that that will be the solution,” he told CNBC’s “Futures Now” on Thursday. “We’ve never had as many currencies in negative interest rates. $17 trillion worth of bonds [are] in negative interest rates. It’s never existed before. And, that’s a bubble. So, we’re in the biggest bond bubble in history, and it’s going to burst.” Paul, a former presidential candidate and vocal libertarian known for his economic and stock market bubble warnings, contends the Federal Reserve’s policies are powerless in this environment. He doesn’t believe this week’s Fed meeting will provide any kind of relief and cutting rates will not be the answer. “You can’t predict exactly where the creation of credit goes,” said Paul. “We have a ton of inflation with all that Quantitative Easing. And, every time you lower interest rates below market levels and create new credit, that’s a bubble.” And the U.S. is only going to be protected from an economic depression temporarily. The stock market will only insulate for so long before it’ll take hits too. Dr. Paul says central banks, which drastically lower interest rates destroy the pricing mechanism in financial markets, can’t stop the ultimate collapse. “I don’t think anything even existed coming close to what we’re facing today,” Paul said. As El Erian says, it is more than $15 trillion of central bank manipulation of rates. Of course, made possible by Wampum money. It is going to be very exciting when something breaks and that causes a sudden spike in risk I bet nobody will be willing to lend at negative interest rates. My guess is that the central banks "cure" will then do direct lending to the public. At that point, our Wampum money will be no more valuable than beads and seashells. meanwhile countries will claim to have "international money" i.e SDRs or some such to back the currency but nobody will be able to cash in their Wampum for SDRs. All in all it will be exciting. I suspect millions of people will pull money out of the banks leading to a bank runs and stagflation which banks will use as the excuse to force dollar bifurcation. Jim Willie’s idea of a “scheiss dollar” becomes reality.

America & Europe will Collapse like The Soviet Union says Russian Expert.








Karen Shakhnazarov, famous Russian director said recently : I'd return to that curious statement of Mr. Soros who said that the EU will share the fate of the USSR. Mr. Soros is a cynic, but an intelligent one. I believe he's the press secretary of the financial oligarchy that actually rules the Western world. They hide in the shadows and he voices the ideas that exist in their community. I believe that $22 trillion of the American debt are a considerable sum . The Americans realize that it all smells like trouble. That's why they're so eager to break all the rules. Remember Master and Margarita when Behemoth was playing with Woland and just flipped the board? The same thing's happening right now. I believe the underlying cause is that the current Western elite doesn't know how to deal with the challenges the Western world is facing. It's worth to recall that Karl Marx perhaps made a lot of mistakes. I'm saying "perhaps" because it's better not to discuss the mistakes of great people. But I believe it is hard not to agree with his main thesis , that the politics of a state , the way he called it must match the technological level of the world . And I must say , that technology has moved far forward , even though the west is in crisis . It remains the most developed civilization . And I believe it was the first to encounter the problem when it must change its politics . technology has changed dramatically over the last 30 years , but the western system remained the same as in the 20th century . Besides , what they call victory over the USSR did them a disservice . They've got an illusion they must keep acting the same way . They must keep acting the same way , that's the only way to solve the problem . But , I think that's impossible at this point . The thing is when the USSR was collapsing , it gave everything away due to the Russian idealistic nature . Take everything , we are going down . But the Americans say : we are not giving up anything . If we go down , we go down together . That's the idea behind their agenda at the Munich conference . It's basically blackmailing . It's basically a challenge to the whole world . Let's get back to the state that suits us . There was a curious statements expressed by Mr. Pence . America is stronger than ever . America has reclaimed leadership . That means it has lost that leadership and now it reclaimed it . The Americans do not want to change anything . Under no circumstances .Everything must remain the way it is . But the world's is changing , it already has , regardless of what the Americans say . That's why I believe that the current western elite is not ready for those changes . And America will suffer a great shock . This shock we are currently partially observing in Europe . for example take the yellow vests movement in France . Just like it is with 28 countries , when 28 people decide to make a movie , but each has its right to vote and their own script , there will be no movie , you see . Europe is doomed for that reason alone . And what's happening in Europe is ,to my mind , an objective process . That's why Europe is confused . There is only one thing Europe wants , and that's to leave everything the way it was in the 90s . But that's impossible . China from its side is playing a waiting game . And that's a right thing to do . China is analyzing everything . It has dozens of thousands of analysts who understand the condition of the west . Early this year Billionaire investor and liberal political activist George Soros issued a call for Europe to “please wake up” and recognize “the magnitude of the threat” it faces from what he said were its enemies, both internal and external. Europe “is sleepwalking into oblivion,” the legendary investor warned in an opinion piece published by Project Syndicate on February this year, “and the people of Europe need to wake up before it is too late.” “If they don’t, the European Union will go the way of the Soviet Union in 1991,” he said, alluding to the dramatic dissolution of the USSR and the fall of Communism in 1991. The European Union (EU) is experiencing a “revolutionary moment” and the eventual outcome is “highly uncertain,” Hungarian-American investor Soros added. Worse still, Soros believed that neither Europe’s leaders nor ordinary citizens appreciated this fact. The current leadership is reminiscent of the politburo (the principal policy-making committee in the Soviet Union) when the union collapsed, Soros said, “continuing to issue ukazes (orders) as if they were still relevant.” European Parliament elections in May 2019 were the next inflection point for the bloc. Anti-establishment, euroskeptic parties are expected to perform well. “Unfortunately, anti-European forces will enjoy a competitive advantage in the balloting. There are several reasons for this, including the outdated party system that prevails in most European countries, the practical impossibility of treaty change, and the lack of legal tools for disciplining member states that violate the principles on which the European Union was founded,” he said. Soros’ commentary comes at a time of uncertainty and instability in Europe amid a rise in populism and anti-establishment sentiment. Brexit in the U.K., widespread civil unrest in France, an influential right-wing party in government in Italy and political flux in Germany, a country that has witnessed its own rebirth of far-right politics, is shaking the bloc’s foundations. In addition, anti-migrant policies and anti-democratic actions in eastern Europe have put countries like Hungary and Poland on a path towards potential disciplinary action with the rest of the EU. Soros explored the political situation in Germany, where Chancellor Angela Merkel (who’s serving her last term in office) is seeing her own Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party pressured in office not only by its coalition partners, the Christian Social Union (CSU) and Social Democrats (SPD) but by the far-right “Alternative for Germany” (AfD) that has gained voters with its euroskeptic, anti-immigration pledges. “As it is, the current ruling coalition cannot be as robustly pro-European as it would be without the AfD threatening its right flank,” Soros noted. On Brexit, he said the public was becoming increasingly aware of the “dire consequences” of the U.K.’s departure from the EU but noted now that “the situation is so complicated that most Britons just want to get it over with, although it will be the defining event for the country for decades to come.” When it comes to Italy, Soros said Europe had made a “fatal mistake” in 2017, during the migration crisis, when it enforced the Dublin Agreement which meant that migrants arriving on European shores had to claim asylum in the first country of entry. Italy struggling to cope with the number of migrants arriving drove the electorate “into the arms of the anti-European League party and Five Star Movement in 2018,” Soros noted. To counter anti-European forces, both within and without the bloc, Soros said Europe needed to recognize its enemies and then “awaken the sleeping pro-European majority and mobilize it to defend the values on which the EU was founded.” “Otherwise, the dream of a united Europe could become the nightmare of the twenty-first century.”

David Icke Explains the Trigger & Endgame








You must understand, the leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. It cannot be overstated. Bolshevism committed the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant and uncaring about this enormous crime is proof that the global media is in the hands of the perpetrators. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Japan vs. South Korea -- The Ongoing Trade War no one is talking about in The West









For more than half a century, U.S. power in Asia has rested on the alliance system that Washington built in the years after World War II. Now, a dispute between Japan and South Korea—the two most important pillars of that system—threatens to undo decades of progress. In Fact there is a raging trade war ongoing between two key US allies , namely Japan and South Korea , but the US media seems to ignore it all . the trade dispute has widened into a full-blown relationship crisis—and the shadow of World War II hangs over it all. For months now , South Korea and Japan are embroiled in a bitter trade war that could have consequences for a global economy that is already suffering from another trade war between the US and China. And in an escalation , South Korea removed Japan from its list of most trusted trading partners, the latest sign of unraveling ties between two U.S allies mired in a series of disputes. Not only that but The Three-year-old security treaty between US and these two key allies is under threat as South Korea terminates intelligence-sharing pact with Japan with relations hit new low . The possible termination of the military information-sharing pact between South Korea and Japan would be a symbolic victory for China, a security analyst has warned. Recent tension between the two countries threatened to spill over into the sphere of intelligence after Seoul signaled that it may pull out of the General Security of Military Information Agreement (GSOMIA) pact. The agreement signed in 2016 enables three-way intelligence gathering between the US and its two allies and provides a crucial framework for coping with North Korea’s nuclear and missile threats. But the escalating trade dispute between Seoul and Tokyo, prompted by a dispute about Japan’s colonial legacy, has left the future of the deal in jeopardy as the annual deadline for its renewal looms. Japan’s foreign minister said that Tokyo “strongly” protested against South Korea’s decision, calling the move “extremely regrettable”. But while Washington is sleeping Through the Japanese-Korean Dispute. China Isn’t. Instead of seeking to actively mediate between its allies, Washington has largely watched from the sidelines—leaving the field to China, which has moved quickly to benefit from US inaction. At a trilateral summit with the Japanese and South Korean foreign ministers in late August, for instance, China encouraged the two sides to at least put aside their differences long enough to make progress on a trilateral trade deal. Despite both countries being close allies of the US, the Trump administration has done little to alleviate the tension. And the few attempts that have been made — Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tried to facilitate a reconciliation last week — have had little success. The Trump administration has failed to establish a sense of alliance in the region. Part of this is the attention on all the other crises the US is currently embroiled in, and part is because President Donald Trump simply does not care enough. This trade dispute is a losing battle for everyone involved. South Korea is one of Japan’s most active trade partners, and the instability in their relationship will cause both economic and national security problems. Like many countries that engage in trade wars, though, they might not care — for now, at least — because of the deeply rooted emotions the conflict stems from. The escalating dispute between Japan and South Korea is another major trade headache – particularly for the world’s manufacturers of mobile phones. With feelings running very deep, this may prove as difficult to resolve as the issues between America and China. The two key U.S. allies in Northeast Asia are at loggerheads—not with China or North Korea but with each other. Since the beginning of July, when Japan restricted exports of critical materials used in South Korea’s high-tech industry, the two countries have waged an escalating war of words. The latest escalation came as South Korea ended a critical intelligence-sharing agreement with Japan. If it gets worse, the trade spat could end up permanently harming relations—as well as disrupting the global smartphone industry right on the verge of the long-awaited rollout of fifth-generation mobile technology. By ignoring this trade war America is Pushing the whole South east Asia right into China's arms. Cambodia just recently moved closer to China and pulled back from the US. South Korea has been changing how they approach North Korea and it has been upsetting the US who wants rigidity and hostility. South Korea was seeking cooperation and some acceptance. Slowly, but surely, South Korea is severing its ties with the West. This is a step on the road to complete Korean reunification and joining the Asian super-powers of China and Russia in the brave new world of post-US sovereignty. The globalists may even try to start a war among the regional players, as they've done it before.

EU, It’s Your Turn Now! European Union Heading For USSR Style Collapse! - Famous Russian Director






Karen Shakhnazarov, famous Russian director: I'd return to that curious statement of Mr. Soros who said that the EU will share the fate of the USSR. Mr. Soros is a cynic, but an intelligent one. I believe he's the press secretary of the financial oligarchy that actually rules the Western world. They hide in the shadows and he voices the ideas that exist in their community. I believe that $22 trillion of the American debt are a considerable sum despite the fact that our pro-American colleagues keep telling us that it's nothing. The Americans realize that it all smells like trouble. That's why they're so eager to break all the rules. Remember Master and Margarita when Behemoth was playing with Woland and just flipped the board? The same thing's happening right now. I believe the underlying cause is that the current Western elite doesn't know how to deal with the challenges the Western world is facing. It's worth to recall that Karl Marx whom Mr. Zhirinovsky so despises perhaps made a lot of mistakes. I'm saying "perhaps" because it's better not to discuss the mistakes of great people.

Russia continues to Dump US Treasuries -- Economic Collapse -- Stock Market Crash








Combined Russia and China Treasury Holdings Hit 9 Year Low As they Keep Dumping US Stocks . Russia has continued to sell off US Treasury securities, cutting its stockpile by $2.35 billion in July, according to the latest US Department of the Treasury data released on Tuesday. Russia’s holdings of US state debt amounted to $8.5 billion in July, with long-term US Treasury securities standing at $6.2 billion and short-term at $2.2 billion. In June, Russian investment in Treasury bills was around $10.8 billion. Japan remains the biggest holder of US Treasury securities for the second month in a row. In June, Tokyo held Treasury bills worth of $1.13 trillion, around 8 billion more than it had a month earlier. Japan is followed by China with $1.11 trillion. Russia used to be one of the major holders of US Treasuries, but since last year it has been steadily cutting the investment in US debt in line with the nation’s de-dollarization policy. Russia is now on par with countries like Oman and New Zealand, which are at the bottom of the list of US Treasury holders. As a matter of state policy, Moscow has also been diversifying its reserves, increasing bullion purchases to record levels and earning the title of the world’s most committed purchaser of gold. As of September, Russia held the fourth largest gold reserves in the world worth $109.5 billion, according to the country’s central bank. Russia fell off the Treasurys list of the 30 or so largest Treasury holders. And in the months that have followed, as the US has imposed more economic sanctions and feuded with Putin over the fate of Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro, Vladimir Putin has turned instead to alternative reserves as the country's de-dollarization push continued. Over the same period of time, Russia was a conspicuously large buyer of Chinese yuan, helping contribute to a spike in yuan buying by reserve managers last year . imagine my surprise: you weaponize the dollar, and people de-dollarize. TADA! Russia and china know exactly what is going on. They know that gold is for the long term and eventually will play a role in the new reserve currency in the future. With the weakening outlook for the US dollar, the best way for the Chinese and Russians, is to dispose of their US Treasuries to swap them for physical gold and silver. Swap something that is declining in value (US dollar) for something that will increase in value (gold and silver),after all the US dollar/gold swap is the perfect inverse swap . It's just a counter-threat to Washington. The adversarial coalition's answer to NATO/CIA putting too many troops on Russia's border and/or blowing up Chinese chemical plants. Because now China is waiting in the wings ready to demand all their exports be paid for by letters of credit denominated in Renminbis. What's going to happen when the world has to sell their precious dollars to buy yuan so they can import 'cheap Chinese crap. The dollar goes to zero and World War 3 is the West's only option. What will Trump do when next he meets with Xi who hands him a note to that effect . For some reason we are watching the last act of some American Shakespearean tragedy. Like HAMLET stuck in an awful family with plotters all around him. Dear Ophelia depressed throwing herself into a stream just about sums up the world today. But in our drama we have Russia and China our so-called enemies denied any friendship biting the colder air. But profits to be made selling weapons to client States like SAUDI ARABIA bastion of medieval democracy; swords come in one size to cut off heads in Turkey. We are in a dream world. HAMLET complained about his bad dreams . The very substance of the ambitious is merely the shadow of a dream. We are following their bad dreams. The clock will strike twelve eventually. The United States has the only talent to turn friends (current and potential) into enemies. Everything else are the consequences.

Peter Schiff Warning : Low Interest Rates guaranteed road to Recession










According to Peter Schiff, the chief global strategist at Euro Pacific Capital, it was a “huge mistake” for the Federal Reserve to cut interest rates last month. Schiff says there is no way for the Federal Reserve to stops the United States from going into a recession. Peter Schiff has been saying that the Federal Reserve is going to take interest rates back to zero and launch another round of quantitative easing in order to reinflate the bubble economy after the next crash. The central bank successfully pulled this off after the 2008 crisis. By dropping rates to zero and holding them there for nearly a decade, and running three rounds of QE, the Fed has reinflated the real estate bubble, blown up a bond bubble and pumped up the stock market. But Peter said it’s not going to work the next time around. Instead, Fed monetary policy will tank the dollar and lead to an inflationary recession. There is no question the US economy is heading toward recession, according to Peter Schiff, chief global strategist at Euro Pacific Capital. He says it was a “huge mistake” for the Federal Reserve to cut interest rates last month. “They never should have taken rates to zero in 2008 and held them there for 7 years,” the veteran broker told RT. “Zero interest rates and quantitative easing have created problems in our economy that will take generations to fix. However, the healing will never get underway if the Fed goes right back to zero (which is where they are headed).” According to Schiff, it’s impossible to build a viable economy on the back of artificially low interest rates. “All it accomplishes it to push up asset prices, creating bubbles and malinvestments that hurt the economy. Relying on low interest rates for growth makes it certain that recessions will ensue when monetary policy tightens.” They never should have taken rates to zero in 2008 and held them there for 7 years,”the veteran economic analyst told RT. “Zero interest rates and quantitative easing have created problems in our economy that will take generations to fix. However, the healing will never get underway if the Fed goes right back to zero (which is where they are headed).” "the next crisis will make '08 look like the roaring twenties" said Peter Schiff . It’s impossible to build a viable economy on the back of artificially low interest rates. “All it accomplishes it to push up asset prices, creating bubbles and malinvestments that hurt the economy. Relying on low interest rates for growth makes it certain that recessions will ensue when monetary policy tightens,” he added. Runaway government debt and the Trump tariffs provided the final push to tip us back toward an inevitable recession, Schiff said. “the Fed is not causing the recession; they are just unable to delay it any longer.” He added . America and the world needs more people like Peter Schiff . The economy made a big shift from savings and production to debt and consumption years ago. people holding assets are making way more money than those people working for a living. Depressions and recessions are inherent in a debt driven economy and need to be allowed to playout. Economic downturns cleanse the economy of unproductive debt that is distorting the markets. The reason Capitalism succeeds when socialism does not is because Capital allows unproductive entities to fail. Let the markets determine what succeeds not a central authority. Link the rate of change of private sector debt to the interest rates, end the central banks and let the chips fall where they may. This was The Atlantis Report . Please like . share . and subscribe .

The Student Loan Debt Crisis Explained








America's collective student loan debt now stands at more than 1.5 trillion dollars . For some perspective , that's more than the entire GDP of Spain , or Sweden , or any of the 54 countries in Africa . A part from mortgages , student loans are the biggest source of personal debt in this country . More than car loans or credit card bills . That's a staggering amount of debt . it is enough to distort and cripple the US economy . overall 2 million Americans owe more than hundred grands in student loans . imagine starting life that far behind . 70% of that debt went to the salaries of the university administrators with titles like: Diversity Chancellor, Dean for Diversity and Community Partnership, LGBT Resource Center Director, Director of Gender and Sexuality, Drug Control Operations Director, and, of course, student loan director. student loans aren't about education. They are about bankers. Corporations are selling economically inert degrees to naive people on credit who then do not earn enough money to repay the loans. This it tenant farming and debt peonage. The loan system towards students is totally predatory in nature and totally subjective on whether the economy is good or bad and jobs are available to the graduates. Granted, anyone who majored in gender studies deserves to be serving coffee at Starbucks for a career and had no business taking out a loan in the first place. student loans was designed to fail at the same time as pensions and social security in an omni bubble which will forever change the way business is run in the united states, right around the time the boomers turn 80-85 and most die off . Federal Student Lending has lead to exponential inflation in college education costs and death of household formations. As Ronald Reagan once quipped, "the scariest words in the English language are we are from the government and we are here to help." Student debt was caused by offering students easy loans. This worked until colleges noticed they had a lot more applicants. More applicants means time to raise tuition. The cycle of "Here's more money for college" and "Let's raise tuition" has been going on for years, during which time college costs have increased at four times the rate of inflation. It used to be possible to work your way through college, working part-time, which meant anyone could still go to college - provided you were (literally) willing to work for it. Now, that's not realistic, since the average job available to a non-college graduate may not provide enough money to go to school even if they work full-time. The good news is, by ignoring the markets, colleges have become so expensive that people are innovating a way around college via internet based education. This reduces costs back to a more manageable level. Problem solved, with no need for the government to get involved. Most of the schools have become indoctrination centers anyway, teaching the kids to support the misguided policies that keep the schools growing ever richer at taxpayer expense. Easy credit, corruption, and our debt based paper money has destroyed the natural market forces that would keep such things from happening in the first place. Obama's largest donors were the universities. Now you know why. This was The Atlantis Report . Please like . share . and subscribe . Thank you ...

How to Prepare for a Recession








various indicators in the economy are pointing to the signs that an inevitable recession is coming which has been at the center of financial news for over the last few months . As a result of this there's been a spike in recession fears throughout the nation . So what do you do when the recession happens, and how can you prepare now . I’ll tell you what most people will do. Now, in the good times, they’re going to “enjoy it while it lasts” they’ll rack up credit card debt, car loans, mortgages, and student loans. Why save money when debt is so cheap and easy to get? Besides, times are good. They “optimistically” ignore the possibility of a decline. For millennials especially, the “good times” are all they’ve ever known. One day soon, these people will be in for a shock. That nice stable job suddenly looks a lot less stable. The payments start coming due on those loans, and it becomes a lot harder to get new loans. They begin to default. They begin to sell off assets to make ends meet. Not a fun time. I’ve decided not to allow myself to be in that position. As a product of “the system”, I’ve made a lot of the mistakes that you’re supposed to make along the way. I spent what I made, sometimes more. I racked up some credit card debt, financed a car, and of course, took out tens of thousands of dollars of student loans for an economics degree that didn’t even teach me how to benefit from economic cycles. I’ve taken jobs I hated that paid me next to nothing because I didn’t think there were any other options. I’ve put money into 401k plans, but that was the extent of my investing. I had a few thousand in a savings account, but not enough for any real peace of mind or opportunities. As I mentioned above, I’ve been making improvements lately, but there’s still a long way to go. My plan to prepare for the next recession is as follow . #1.Financial security. This is the first priority, and I define it, first as getting completely out of debt. The student loans and car loans are paid off. Now there’s just the credit cards left, and those should be taken care of by the end of this year if I stick to my aggressive payoff schedule. #2. Cash reserves. Next, build up a large cash cushion in the bank. Several months or more of living expenses in case something unexpected happens. But this is more than just insurance against failure, it’s also a stash of “dry powder.” In a recession, things get cheap, and I need to be prepared to take advantage. Besides, things bother you a lot less when you have cash in the money. #3. Preserve value. Your investments are going to lose value. Maybe a lot of it. First of all, don’t be stupid and sell at the bottom. Second, once I have a bit of cash socked away, I plan to convert some of it into something more inflation resistant. Precious metals are the obvious choice, but there are others. I’m not to this stage yet, and I still need to do more research. #4. Diversify income sources. I could easily have listed this first. If your income is totally dependent on a job, even a good job, you’re taking a huge gamble. People talk about side hustles. Now is a good time to get started. I’ve been neglecting this for a long time, but I have a few things in progress and am always looking for more ideas to work on. The more income sources you have, the better. Basically, my attitude right now is to take advantage while times are good. And I don’t mean buying useless shit ... It has never been easier to start a business or side hustle. Remember all those people racking up credit card debt? They can use it to pay for your product or service. If you need investor funding (try to avoid this if you can, profit is always better), it has never been easier to get. If you need another job, you can probably find one. If you ask your boss for a raise, you’ll probably get it. Do everything you can NOW to increase your income as much as possible. People talk about building great, sustainable business empires, and that’s a worthy goal, but now is the time to grab money. Be a bit unsustainable in terms of effort. Don’t do anything illegal or unethical , this will backfire on you. And then there’s the other side of the equation . Expenses. Keep them as low as possible. Again, this can be unsustainable for now. You want increase that cushion and reduce debt as fast as possible. Skip the $8 coffees an don’t upgrade your SUV this year. Always spend less than you make. Consider selling off some of your old stuff you don’t need NOW. Prices are going to crater on a lot of this stuff when the market shifts. Take your cash off the table now. People think of economic downturns as a universally bad thing, but this is only the case for the unprepared. By planning ahead and organizing your life intelligently, it can actually be a huge buying opportunity for those who can survive the immediate negative effects. This was The Atlantis Report .

Gold & Silver Rally as Investors Seek Safe havens







The price of gold surged more than one percent on Monday as investors turned to safe-haven assets, following attacks at the weekend on Saudi Arabia’s oil and gas facilities. The strikes cut off five percent of world oil supply. The yellow metal jumped 1.2 percent at the open, hitting $1,506 per ounce. Gold is now on track to mark its biggest one-day percentage gain since August 23. With escalating tensions in the Middle East and hopes of more stimulus measures from major central banks, the next target for gold will be $1,530 per ounce. Another safe-haven investment, silver, also gained, rising almost three percent to $17.94 per ounce. When you take a step back and look at the big picture, the implications for gold are clear . #1.Basel III moves gold toward officially being money again. #2.Central banks are buying record amounts of gold. #3.Excessive U.S. sanctions have pushed countries to use gold. #4.China’s “Golden Alternative” allows for large-scale, oil-for-gold trades. #5.The Fed’s dramatic reversal and the return of easy money bode well for gold’s strength against the dollar. #6.The takeover frenzy in the gold mining industry is bullish for the price of gold. #7.President Trump favors returning to the gold standard and is stacking the Fed with pro-gold people. #8.The Democrats’ embrace of socialism guarantees more currency debasement. #9.Gold-backed cryptos make owning and using gold easier than ever. Any one of these catalysts alone would be great news for gold. But the fact they are all converging at the same time means an epic gold bull market is on the menu for 2019. And the time to get positioned is now . Gold is the primary competitor for the U.S. dollar’s top role. And as the American socialists inflate the value of the dollar away, it will make gold all that more attractive. The US gold was leaked into the market to suppress gold prices, surely not all of it, but most. Suppressing the gold price allowed the dollar to continue another couple of decades. The fact that they refuse any audits of it for the last 45+ years is telling. The US gold reserves would be worth trillions if they weren't in Chinese vaults since long. At least fiat bugs will have paper for kindling to keep them warm so there is that. Gold was money for 5,000 years and it'll be money long after the dollar and all other counterfeit currencies are long gone. Precious metals are unique, serving as the only true store of value, standard of value and measure of value, besides being a medium of exchange. If one has physical metal stored and understands the inherent control with its direct access at any given moment, it has been and remains the safest way to protect wealth from the current powerful debasement. Gold stays the same all the time, its value and properties have never changed .ever. It is the currencies that lose value against gold staying in one place because gold NEVER moves. In other words ,it takes more and more dollars to buy the exact same thing. The money is losing to gold in 73 countries around the world. Gold is an insurance policy that pays YOU money. Gold is going to new highs , it is just simple Math . We have a 22 Trillion deficit, 200 Trillion in out year obligations coming due, The FED printed 16 Trillion and handed it out to banks in 2008, there is 21 Trillion that was printed and missing thanks to the detective work of Dr Mark Skidmore of University of Michigan and his grad students. Virtually none of these Trillions are reflected in the current pricing of gold vs the Federal Reserve Note . The only way out of this is to print default or default and default and we all know how they are going to choose even though it won't make a difference to gold. They've kept this game going for about as long as anyone ever thought possible , but it's going to end and when it does you will see it reflected in the dollar exchange price of gold. It's just simple math. This was The Atlantis Report . Please like . share . and subscribe . Thank you ...

The Rise of Eurasia & The Decline of America and The West !!







Asian players are proving to be conceptually and bureaucratically better positioned in the 21st century’s Great Game that involves tectonic geopolitical shifts with the emergence of what commonly called the Eurasian continent which is the fusion of Europe and Asia into a “supercontinent.” While China and Russia solidify their economic and political alliance, the U.S. is missing an historic chance to join a multilateral world, instead clinging to military empire. Since Saudi Arabia, which mostly consists of flat desert with oil wells, spends more on "defense" than the entire 11 time zones of the nuclear power Russian Federation, it seems they are not spending particularly wisely. Putin dropped the hint about the Saudis acquiring the S-400 when asked point blank about the early Saturday major drone attack on the Aramco facilities, citing the need for Riyadh to protect its oil infrastructure., joking that Saudi Arabia should buy the same S-400 anti-missile defense system that Moscow already sold to Tehran ,amid the laughter of Iranian officials, including President Rouhani . Interestingly, he along with the other two leaders meeting in Ankara this week — Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani — were all in agreement that the US-Saudi coalition bombing campaign and war on Yemen must be brought to a close as soon as possible. Absolute folly that the US forced both Iran and Russia into China's arms instead of making deals with them and doing business. That's literally tens of trillions of dollars of business lost. Every action of the US is helping create a multi-polar world, a stepping stone toward world government. Those who ultimately decide US policy are globalists, not nationalists. the rise of Eurasia will trigger the permanent decline of the United States and with it the nations considered as 'the west' that will slide into a deep economic downturn. Social upheaval and disarray will follow once it becomes clear that the economic model is no longer functioning. Those that claim we are in the makings of such a system refuse to acknowledge that the west is in steep decline and that there are deep ideological differences between the leadership in China/Russia and that of the 'west'. Iran's foreign minister Mohammad Zarif paid a visit to his Chinese counterpart Wang Li at the end of August to present a road map for the China-Iran comprehensive strategic partnership, signed in 2016. The updated agreement echoes many of the points contained in previous China-Iran accords, and already in the public domain. However, many of the key specifics of this new understanding will not be released to the public, despite representing a potentially material shift to the global balance of the oil and gas sector, according to a senior source closely connected to Iran's petroleum ministry who spoke exclusively to Petroleum Economist in late August. Without any benefit of doubt Iran become a valuable partner of Belt and Road Initiative led by China. Iran in return get security against Imperialist ambition! The great irony is of course that current American policies aimed at frustrating any Eurasian economic sphere are in fact the engine that drives this process. Russia dreamed of joining the EU and NATO as a means to build a peaceful Eurasia. That was prevented by the US and as a consequence, Russia created the Eurasia Economic Union EAEU as an equivalent and intended copy of the EU, since changed a bit to avoid the EU’s pitfalls. In practice, Russia and China will be advancing the alignment of China’s New Silk Roads, or Belt and Road Initiative , with Russia’s Eurasia Economic Union . Russia was pushed to China by US sanctions , initially for loans to avoid IMF austerity and securing these loans with large oil and gas contracts. This move created the space for the real takeoff of Belt and Road Initiative by making possible land routes from China to Europe via Russia. Since then, both Russia and China corralled as many countries as they can to their respective groups – EEAU and SCO. Russia joined the Belt and Road Initiative and it became clear that the future would be a free trade agreement between the two groups, carefully hidden initially to prevent premature US interference while the blocs were still vulnerable. Russia and China would never have been getting along so well again so quickly if it wasn't for American economic and political meddling. China stipulated in all clarity its principle of global markets but between nation states, not a borderless area. China is more aware of the insurmountable administrative problems of borderless societies and is a firm believer in nation. It’s system is modeled on society: the group is more important than individual, but individual is paramount to innovation and progress and peace. In the larger system of Belt and Road Initiative, nations are the larger entity of individual and the group is the Belt and Road Initiative itself. This will limit administration to each nation, leave the right to self-determination intact and further national/ cultural diversity that is good for trade. China experienced uniformity in its recent past and found it not conducive to lively interchange. That is the insight underlying its principle of non- interference in the internal affairs of other states. China was world economic engine way before The US was born, India and China were more than 50 percent of the world economy since birth of Christ till 1750. They are simply taking back their place. The Rise of Asian giants like India and China will eclipse the west ,as social programs of free money where Social Security and Medicare are becoming unsustainable. The West can't compete with the BRICS power .the Reality is that Dollar is the only US export and it is about to be dropped as reserve currency . Which will turn the US into a third world country. The last option is to go to war or suck it up. The World is no longer unipolar and the american empire is collapsing from with in. No external forces needed. More or less the leftist socialist will destroy the west as they want everything for free. With the EU running into more and more resistance to its normalizing pressures and increasing subjugation by the US, there will in time come a move east – away from US dominance and towards new markets free of neocon limitations. That is why the EU nations joined The Chinese development bank and silently expand trade with Russia: the future is a free trade agreement between the EU, the EAEU and SCO, while NATO will disappear and get reformulated as a pan Eurasian defense force. The United States of Europe will not happen – it is not in the interest of trade. While Washington remains a bipartisan prisoner to the Russophobic Platonic cave – where Cold War shadows on the wall are taken as reality . MAGA is missing the train to Eurasia.MAGA would thrive if hitched to a ride on the Eurasia integration train: more jobs and more business opportunities instead of more foreign wars. Yet MAGA won’t happen . Russia and China are developing the ultimate nightmare for those former shamans of U.S. foreign policy, Henry Kissinger and the late Zbigniew “Grand Chessboard” Brzezinski. A new world is being shaped rapidly. And the reality of facts will continue to demand from world leaders a new approach and a new direction. Eurasia today is not a dream it is a necessity !!

Ron Paul : No One Believes Iran Attacked Saudi Arabia



Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was sure of who was responsible for the attack on Saudi oil facilities shortly after the attack. Neocons followed suit, one by one blaming Iran and calling for the war they've been drooling over for years. But not only are Washington's European partners skeptical of the claims - even Gulf allies are not outright blaming Iran. Lies grease the wheels of the war machine and with the latest attack the grease is flowing freely. What will Trump do?

Putin offers to Sell the S-400 Missiles to Saudis instead of their American MIM-104 Patriot





The devastating blitz on Saudi Arabia’s oil industry has led to a flurry of accusations from US officials blaming Iran. The reason for the finger-pointing is simple: Washington’s spectacular failure to protect its Saudi ally. The Trump administration needs to scapegoat Iran for the latest military assault on Saudi Arabia because to acknowledge that the Houthi rebels mounted such an audacious assault on the oil kingdom’s heartland would be an admission of American inadequacy. Saudi Arabia has spent billions of dollars in recent years purchasing US Patriot missile defense systems and supposedly cutting-edge radar technology from the Pentagon. If the Yemeni rebels can fly combat drones up to 1,000 kilometers into Saudi territory and knock out the linchpin production sites in the kingdom’s oil industry, then that should be a matter of huge embarrassment for US “protectors.” Saudi Arabia has no defenses against this kind of attacks. The U.S. has no system that could be used for that purpose. Russia is the only country that can provide the necessary equipment. It would be extremely costly, and still insufficient, to protect all of the Saudi’s vital facilities from similar swarm attacks. Russia is already making a sales pitch, saying that the Russian systems can protect Saudi oilfields where American systems can't. And I'm sure the whole world has noticed what the dismal failure of the American weapons. Russia is going to be flat out to keep up with demand. Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed Saudi Arabia to purchase Russian weapons during press conference following talks with leaders of Turkey and Iran in Ankara, Monday. "For the political leadership of Saudi Arabia it will be enough to make a wise decision, as the leaders of Iran did purchasing the S-300, and as President Erdogan did purchasing from Russia the latest S-400 Triumph air defense systems. They will reliably protect any infrastructure of Saudi Arabia", - said Putin. His Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani also commented on recent drone attacks on Saudi oil industry: "The people of Yemen was forced to retaliate following this daily flow of arms to Saudi Arabia and is used against Yemeni people. What Yemeni people are doing is protecting themselves, protecting themselves from the attacks". Iranian leader went on saying that "fundamental solution to this problem is the diplomacy. Maybe what we are witnessing within the Astana format will be the model." Speaking on Syrian crisis, Recep Tayyip Erdogan offered to build a refugee city alongside Syria-Turkey border: "We will not allow any terrorist corridor anywhere along our border with Syria. I would also like to emphasize that in this region we can build a refugee city, we can build a few accommodations for the refugees where they can grow some fruits and vegetables. We can start the preparations in this regard". An excellent reply to Saudi Arabia the S400 is a cheaper and better piece of hardware than Patriot 3 . This was The Atlantis Report .

GERALD CELENTE ELITES WILL TAKE THE ENTIRE SHIP DOWN PREPARE YOUR SCUBA GEAR!








Money in Congress is a National Security Risk . Whips and Leaders are the crux of the corruption. A true disruptor in Congress. They were created during the height of Government corruption in 1899 (leaders) and 1900 (whips). They were NOT implemented by the framers of the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence. Congress is manipulated by Whips and Leaders to broker the bills in a profiteering manner to 501c's, corporations, globalist and other countries (never waste a crisis to make money). The myth is Congress is a weak victim overpowered by the large money lobbyist. But the truth, Congress is the tyranny understanding they have a monopoly selling bills and are aggressive at it. You want a bill passed you have to come through them, so bring your American Express card. There is no defensible argument, Congress betrayed their Fiduciary duty. Whips and Leaders should have been eliminated with Antitrust in the early 1900's. Whips and Leaders front run our republic. This isn't a Democracy, it's not a Republic, it's a coup d'état and the Whips and Leaders are the party of guilt…. The most corrupt era of the US Government was in the late 1800's and early 1900's. It was when Americans were in revolt of our Government in collusion with giant monopolies (Antitrust). Names like JP Morgan , Rockefellers, Vanderbilt's, etc.. These guys bought and paid for the election of President McKinley in 1896. Then President McKinley implemented Whips and Leaders into our government to assist the large amounts of lobbyist money, campaign contributions and special interest group monies in a profiteering manner. It was a terrible, terrible time for America. Six months later in Presidents McKinley's second term of Presidency he was assassinated. Antitrust was finally passed around 1914 but they forgot to get rid of the corrupt Whips and Leader position that assist in this corruption. Benjamin Franklin said, “A Republic, if you can keep it.”

Coming War? Saudi Arabia Oil Fields and the Iran Drone Attack EXPLAINED






The targeting for this attack was done with detailed knowledge of the process and its dependencies. The hits were extremely precise. The Yemeni armed forces claimed it attacked the facility with 10 drones (or cruise missiles). But the hits on these targets look like neither. A total of 17 hits with such precise targeting lets me assume that these were some kind of drones or missiles with man-in-the-loop control. They may have been launched from within Saudi Arabia. The U.S. and Israel are able to commit such attacks. Iran probably too. Yemen seems unlikely to have this capability without drawing on extensive support from elsewhere. Middle East Eye, a Qatari financed outlet, reported yesterday that the attack was launched from Iraq by Iran aligned forces in revenge for Israeli attacks in Syria. The author, David Hearst, is known for slandered reporting. The report is based on a single anonymous Iraqi intelligence source. Qatar, which is struggling with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates over its support for the Muslim Brotherhood, would like to see a larger conflict involving its rivals east and west of the Persian Gulf. Some thing does not add up: Why is the U.S ignoring the people who claimed fault- they know that Iran is helping the Houthis. So what ! The U.S has supported their proxies from the the days of the pioneers being paid for every dead indian to supplying ISIS with new Toyotas . Wouldn't they be attacking tanks in the refinery that were full of Oil and gas rather than empty ones .a bit too convenient. Why does Fred Flintstone (Pompeo) jump to conclusions about 'evidence' when there is none . It seems a bit too obvious who is really behind this- electioneering anyone! Notice a pattern here guys, first the tanker wars, three attacks. When Iran responded, that stopped. Just a while after now this. Whosoever is behind this wants a war very badly. My money is on the bankers .All wars are bankers wars after all . Just to keep in mind: if missiles were launched from Iran, they would have had to cross the Persian Gulf, pretty much over Bahrain (where the US Sixth Fleet is headquartered), over Dammam, and strike the target - all while undetected by the vast area of assets the US has in the region, let alone Saudi Arabia's defenses . This is attributing to Iran stealth missiles with pinpoint accuracy that the most modern US radar/defenses absolutely cannot detect - entirely invisible. Even the tail burn. Does that make sense? And if it is true. do you really want to start a war against whoever has that technology . I mean, the US mainland is far less protected than that area of the world - how many nuclear plants are within 100 miles of the ocean, where any frigate could launch one of these . So, we have absolutely no evidence. We have a claim made by a barbaric terror state that constantly lies and has it in for Iran. And we have the Trump lapping it up. Of course the liars in charge will never walk through the implications of their lies. They just expect you to swallow them, hook, line and sinker, and start World war 3 just because they tell you to. This was most likely Saudi self-inflicted. A false flag . they damage their own stuff, blame Iran, and start the war they have been dreaming of. Pretty easy to do. All they had to do is wait until Houthis launched an attack for the timing. Better to stage an attack on soon to be unneeded infrastructure and blame your people's ensuing financial pain on terrorism than become dog-meat when they realize you squandered their birthrite for pennies on the dollar, and it's gone now. This is a regime survival propaganda play. This was The Atlantis Report . Please like . share . and subscribe . Thank you ...

Saudi Aramco Drone Attack is a Reverse 9/11 False Flag Attack






On Saturday September 14th someone fired missiles or sent armed drones against Saudi oil facilities reducing world oil production by 5% and Saudi production by 50%. The beleaguered Houthis group at war by Saudi Arabia in Yemen quickly claimed credit for the attack. While the Houthis have used armed drones in attack mode previously against the Saudi’s, those flights were bee stings compared to the sophistication and breadth of success in the latest attack. The BBC calls the latest events “a different order of magnitude altogether.” There were seventeen different points of impact on the Abqaiq facility. What ragtag poorly armed enemy could possibly conduct such as remarkably complex attack? Since the recent long past sell-by date demise of John Bolton, Donald Trump’s current attack Chihuahua, Mike Pompeo, promptly insisted Iran was behind the attack. But how does Iran benefit by starting World War III ? Are they so fucking stupid that they would wave a red flag in front of the nuclear armed US, nuclear armed Israel and Saudi Arabia run by a snow flake who thinks cold blooded murder is just about right when his feelings are hurt. Something really strange about the missile strikes on the four tanks in one of the pictures they released. The "marks" on the attacks "appear" to come from incoming from the North and the locations on the four tanks are within inches of each other! And there appears to be no leakage or fire marks around the supposed puncture holes! Something very strange about this! A targeting precision beyond belief! The Houties claim the did this yet a missile is found in Kiuait and supposedly Iran did this ! Why The Saudis didn't take down a single missile with their Patriot missile systems ! The third most important oil facility in the world was inadequately protected ! No radar images of incoming missiles, not even ground reports ! And the Saudis claim they will get some production back in short order ! Stinks of a False Flag by the Military Industrial Complex to drag the US into another stupid, useless and costly world war . The satellite photos provided look fake. The impact holes are all perfect - nicely rounded and placed in the same locations on the tanks, no sign of any spillage or fires, and the smoke plumes are all going different directions. All in the same location on all tanks. Accuracy never before witnessed. or was it just some nice photoshopping. I'm going with the photoshop. Also, the missile debris seems odd. A missile drops down to the sand, and doesn't make a mark on the ground ! even if it didn't detonate when it hit, it's still going to make an impact when it's debris falls to the earth. These parts all look like they were just laid there. Most definitely a False Flag. Was Bolton released because he wouldn't play along ? Even he probably knows this is a bad idea. All that said, take note of some things. Despite Yemen's Houthis themselves claiming responsibility for the precision strike using ten drones, unleashing explosions that rocked Abqaiq facility and the Khurais field, there were way more then 10 explosions within this attack. And the attack occurred in 5 different locations within the satellite image which showed 5 separate smoke plumes in the desert, the following morning. Of the 10 missiles claimed to have been fired from Yemen, at least 1 of them crashed in the desert. which means 7 of the remaining 9 missiles hit one target site alone! Plus there were other reports of loud jet engines and then 12 large explosions at the same site. first they were claiming they were "certain" attacks came from Iraqi soil, likely from Iran-backed militias acting as proxies. they've now changed their tune to line up behind the latest Saudi military assessment. Meaning: The U.S. really isn't "certain" about anything, and will change their "certainty" based on what the Saudis want them to say. It's all propaganda that the U.S. is passing on to Mainstream media . With all the CIA's high-tech gear, why does it take Pompeo over 48 hrs to manufacture "evidence" ! As soon as they are done creating the evidence, Pompeo will release it , they said . Yep, 48hrs needed to Photoshop some images. And wind the war machine up. What an amazing coincidence this attack was anyway . just when the banks and the frackers were afraid that oil would hit $20 a barrel . and that their trillion (quadrillion) dollar derivative positions would unwind . and that the dollar would immediately collapse . the evil Iranians callously strike the innocent House of Saud . and we have breathing room, again . who would have ever imagined that this scenario could possible play out !!! it's as ridiculous as planes striking the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Its great how nobody with even half a brain would believe them in just about ANYTHING anymore. The US goobermint,from the CONgress to the Prezident to the Supreme Soviet to the alphabet soup terror agencies to the Military Industrial Complex have lost whatever credibility they once had. Despite US officials repeatedly over the weekend claiming they were "certain" attacks came from Iraqi soil, likely from Iran-backed militias acting as proxies, they've now changed their tune to line up behind the latest Saudi military assessment. That's how you know this was a false flag. They had to scramble for best narrative, as a matter of fact they kept quiet for 24 hours trying to figure out how to frame this. They floated narratives that didn't work and modified as they went. All they knew was that they would of course blame Iran. When Trump said he was waiting to hear from Saudi it had nothing to do with Saudi being in charge, preposterous. They needed time. The big problem the US will have when releasing its evidence is that NOBODY BELIEVES A LIAR even if it's true. For every one fired Bolton, there are 10 sucking Pompeos surrounding the POTUS. War is inevitable folks, with all the unintended consequences. Another false flag event to get us into another senseless war.And this one is to defend the same people who attacked us in 2001.
