Stephen Lendman ~ Strengthening Sino-Russian Ties

“Russia, China and other major world nations represent the future. America on its present course has none. It makes more enemies than friends. It’s thirdworldized.” – S Lendman

steveLendmanOn October 2, Vladimir Putin participated in the VI Russia Calling! Investment Forum. It focuses on attracting foreign capital.

It discusses ways to increase investments in Russia’s economy overall. Efforts so far proved successful. Opportunities in a resource rich country like Russia are huge.

According to Putin, “many serious investors and our country’s partners of long standing continue increasing their investment in various sectors of the Russian economy.”

At the same time, “(e)xternal limitations have an adverse effect not only on Russia’s economy, but also on that of the whole world,” he said.

“They only add to our determination to meet our targets in the priority areas of our country’s development, which include economic growth, upgrading the industry and infrastructure, the creation of new jobs and improvement of the quality of life of Russia’s citizens.”

Conditions are more complicated than earlier, Putin explained. Russia’s actions are based on responsible, balanced macroeconomic and budget policy, he added.

“The events of this year have convinced us yet again that the choice we made many years ago is the right one,” he stressed.

Putin remains upbeat. He’s confident about Russia’s economic prospects. He’s looking more East than West.

At the same time, He’s eager for normalized Western relations. He called sanctions on Russia “foolish.”

They’ve had little effect on Russia’s economy. According to Russian expert Richard Connolly, “FDI (foreign direct investment) figures from the Central Bank didn’t show any particular downturn.” Continue reading

Paul Craig Roberts ~ Will Russia and China Hold Their Fire Until War Is the Only Alternative?

” Unfortunately for Russia, Russia is infected with Western trained neoliberal economists who represent Western, not Russian, interests.” – P C Roberts

PaulCraigRobertsObama’s September 24 speech at the UN is the most absurd thing I have heard in my entire life. It is absolutely amazing that the president of the United States would stand before the entire world and tell what everyone knows are blatant lies while simultaneously demonstrating Washington’s double standards and belief that Washington alone, because the US is exceptional and indispensable, has the right to violate all law.

It is even more amazing that every person present did not get up and walk out of the assembly.

The diplomats of the world actually sat there and listened to blatant lies from the world’s worst terrorist. They even clapped their approval.

The rest of the speech was just utter bullshit: “We stand at a crossroads,” “signposts of progress,” “reduced chance of war between major powers,” “hundreds of millions lifted from poverty,” and while ebola ravages Africa “we’ve learned how to cure disease and harness the power of the wind and the sun.” We are now God. “We” is comprised of the “exceptional people”–Americans. No one else counts. “We” are it.

It is impossible to pick the most absurd statement in Obama’s speech or the most outrageous lie. Is it this one? “Russian aggression in Europe recalls the days when large nations trampled small ones in pursuit of territorial ambition.”

Or is it this one? “After the people of Ukraine mobilized popular protests and calls for reform, their corrupt president fled.  Against the will of the government in Kiev, Crimea was annexed.  Russia poured arms into eastern Ukraine, fueling violent separatists and a conflict that has killed thousands.  When a civilian airliner was shot down from areas that these proxies controlled, they refused to allow access to the crash for days.  When Ukraine started to reassert control over its territory, Russia gave up the pretense of merely supporting the separatists, and moved troops across the border.” Continue reading

Jonathan Turley ~ China Will Soon Be Able To Import Cooked Chicken Into U.S. Without Labels Of Origin

ChickenChinaThe Obama Administration has quietly opened up the U.S. market to Chinese chicken – a move that alarms some public interest groups. Many consumers avoid China foods, including pet foods, due to a long series of contaminated and poisoned products coming from that country. Now the U.S. will allow four Chinese poultry plants to send processed chicken to American markets while hiding their origin. The problem is that by cooking the chicken, China can avoid new country-of-origins labels (COOL) at delis and other stores — resulting in consumers eating Chinese food products without knowing it.

The Chinese plants passed inspection and will be able to start processing chicken that has been slaughtered in the U.S. or other countries. This follows a hold on the operation after outbreaks of bird flu occurred this year in China, causing human illness and death. Continue reading

Using an official Vatican car to transport cocaine and cannabis did not help two Italians to avoid justice. Diplomatic plates failed to protect the two smugglers as they were stopped and arrested in France.

Two Italians, 30 and 41, whose names have not been revealed, are now in a French prison.

There are varying reports on where the arrest was made. Local sources say the incident took place at a French border checkpoint, while AFP reported the two were detained at a toll station near Chambéry, in the French Alps.

When law enforcement searched the Vatican vehicle, they found four kilos of cocaine and 200 grams of cannabis.

It appeared that the car belonged to the Argentine Cardinal Jorge Maria Mejia, 91, retired librarian of the Holy See, who is now recovering after a heart attack.

According to reports, the Cardinal’s private secretary had given the car to the two Italian men few days earlier, to take it for its annual checkup. French RTL radio said the two men used the car to drive to Spain to buy the drugs, assuming they would be protected by the diplomatic plates. They were reportedly on the way back when French police stopped them.  Continue reading . . .
