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

Pepe Escobar ~ The Birth Of A Eurasian Century: Russia And China Do “Pipelineistan”

A specter is haunting Washington, an unnerving vision of a Sino-Russian alliance wedded to an expansive symbiosis of trade and commerce across much of the Eurasian land mass – at the expense of the United States.

And no wonder Washington is anxious. That alliance is already a done deal in a variety of ways: through the BRICS group of emerging powers (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa); at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the Asian counterweight to NATO; inside the G20; and via the 120-member-nation Non-Aligned Movement (NAM). Trade and commerce are just part of the future bargain. Synergies in the development of new military technologies beckon as well. After Russia’s Star Wars-style, ultra-sophisticated S-500 air defense anti-missile system comes online in 2018, Beijing is sure to want a version of it. Meanwhile, Russia is about to sell dozens of state-of-the-art Sukhoi Su-35 jet fighters to the Chinese as Beijing and Moscow move to seal an aviation-industrial partnership.

This week should provide the first real fireworks in the celebration of a new Eurasian century-in-the-making with Russian President Vladimir Putin visiting Xi in Shanghai this Tuesday and Wednesday. You remember Pipelineistan,” all those crucial oil and gas pipelines crisscrossing Eurasia that make up the true circulatory system for the life of the region. Now, it looks like the ultimate Pipelineistan deal, worth $1 trillion and 10 years in the making, will be inked as well. In it, the giant, state-controlled Russian energy giant Gazprom will agree to supply the giant state-controlled China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) with 3.75 billion cubic feet of liquefied natural gas a day for no less than 30 years, starting in 2018. That’s the equivalent of a quarter of Russia’s massive gas exports to all of Europe. China’s current daily gas demand is around 16 billion cubic feet a day, and imports account for 31.6% of total consumption.

Gazprom may still collect the bulk of its profits from Europe, but Asia could turn out to be its Everest. The company will use this mega-deal to boost investment in Eastern Siberia and the whole region will be reconfigured as a privileged gas hub for Japan and South Korea as well. If you want to know why no key country in Asia has been willing to isolate Russia in the midst of the Ukrainian crisis – and in defiance of the Obama administration – look no further than Pipelineistan.

Exit the Petrodollar, Enter the Gas-o-Yuan

Stephen Lendman ~ Sino/Russian Unity: What Washington Fears Most

China is an economic powerhouse. It’s the world’s second largest economy. It’s heading for number one status.

Perhaps sooner than most expect. It’s growth way outdistances America. It’s multiples greater.

Russia matches Washington’s military might. It does so in nuclear weapons strength. With sophisticated delivery systems.

Able to strike global targets accurately. With hugely destructive force. Enough to decimate potential adversaries. Perhaps to discourage potential aggression.

Russia is rich in what China needs most. Oil and gas mainly. Technological expertise. Industrial equipment. Sophisticated weapons.

Each nation is significant separately. They’re able to challenge America responsibly.

Together they’re a powerful combination. A force for world peace. For multi-polarity. For humanity. For weakening Washington’s imperium.

Sino-Russian ties stress unity. They’re strategically important. They’re stronger than ever in modern times.

They’re deepening. They expanding. Washington is increasingly concerned. It’s going all-out to subvert what weakens its strength.

It’s waging political, economic and cyberwar. It’s fighting a losing battle. Sino/Russian unity is odds on to prevail.

Especially with committed ties. With deepening ones. With stronger than ever ones.

On Tuesday, Putin arrived in Shanghai. It’s China’s financial capital. He came to finalize a “Holy Grail” trade deal. It’s enormously important.

It bonds both countries more closely together. It does so politically economically, commercially and militarily.

Both countries will trade increasingly in their own currencies. They’ll strengthen them. They’ll bypass dollar transactions. They’ll weaken it.

Russia will supply China with around 38 billion cubic million meters of natural gas annually. For the next 30 years.

It may double in size ahead. Depending on China’s internal needs. Continue reading

Ben Fulford (Feb 10 2014) ~ The Countdown Begins, Secretary Of Skull And Bones Kerry Goes On Begging Mission

benjaminfulford.net

The families that own the Federal Reserve Board missed making gold payments due on January 31st so they now have to scramble to find gold before February 27th or face the bankruptcy of their United States of America Corporation. That is why Secretary of Skull and Bones John Kerry is off this week to beg for gold from the United Arab Emirates, Indonesia, South Korea and China. The cover story about the US Congress having to raise the debt ceiling in order to avoid government bankruptcy is only fooling a steadily shrinking group of the brainwashed living dead.

When they missed their payment last September 31st the cabalist were able to postpone bankruptcy by making a deal with Iran, selling weapons to China and a few other tricks. Let us see if they manage to kick the can down the road once again perhaps by offering the Okinawan archipelago to China or some such thing.

Otherwise President Obama can prove he is the real deal and start issuing US government currency instead of borrowing foreign Federal Reserve Board debt notes misnamed the US dollar.

Ben Fulford (June 8 2013) ~ Financial War Escalates With Riots In Turkey, A Blockade Of European Central Bank, Assassinations And Arrests Amid Clouds Of Disinformation

BenjaminFulford.net

Last week multiple high level sources all confirmed an intensifying battle for control of the global financial system and thus the future of humanity. In the public sphere this is appearing in the form of riots in Turkey, blockades of the European Central Bank and massive global protests against Monsanto among other things. Under the surface there has been a rash of intrigues, arrests, threats and counter-threats. New alliances have also been reached between previously opposing forces, according to multiple high level sources.

In Asia, China, South Korea, Japan and the United States have all agreed on forcing regime change in North Korea, according to a senior Chinese government agent. This was confirmed by a gnostic Illuminati grandmaster and Russian FSB agent who said that Kim Jong-un would have to be removed. The North Koreans, now run by an elderly general, want peace. In the Middle East, meanwhile, apart from the riots in Turkey and Russian troops in Syria, there were separate assassination attempts in Iran against President Mahmoud Ahmajidenad and his ally Saeed Jalili, according to the Mossad linked site Debka.

There are also 11 members of the One People’s Public Trust, the people behind the so-called galactics pushing for their version of a new financial system on the run from both hitmen and law enforcement agents in Ethiopia, according to a CIA source. A senior Italian P2 Lodge member says the people in Ethiopia are there in an effort to find the “original Ark of the Covenant.” At least both sides agree that there is some form of high level intrigue going on in Ethiopia of all places. We will try to find out more next week.

Meanwhile, a member of the Dragon family came forth this week to provide some background. The man who goes by the name Count Albert but insists he is not the fraudulent “Count Albert Zvonko Berdik” sent by the Federal Reserve Board to Hong Kong a while ago. According to him, the Dragon family goes back 3400 years and is headed by a single individual going by the code name M1. He says the Dragon family has now formed an alliance with the Five Star Trust run by the non-Bush part of the CIA.
He also says that China has already started to use new energy technology to turn the desert regions of China green.

Ben Fulford (Oct 8 2012) ~ Are Syria, Jordan And Israel About To Revert To Turkish Control?

BenjaminFulford.net

The passing by the Turkish parliament last week of a law authorizing war against Syria may be part of a secret plan to restore Middle-Eastern peace by placing Turkey in charge of the region. This would mean putting Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel and maybe Iraq under Turkish rule as a part of a loose confederation of countries that have, for many thousands of years, been part of the same cultural tradition. Only the Luciferian state of Israel has the military ability to stop Turkey but since it is fast losing the financial and moral support of the Jews, it would probably agree to join a loose Turkish federation rather than lose all military and financial support from outside of the region.

This would mean the Rothschild plan would blow up, and the political map of the Middle East would revert to something similar to what prevailed before they took over the Federal Reserve Board, started World War I and got the Balfour Declaration signed.
In the US, meanwhile, Pentagon and agency sources say that key leaders of the Sabbatean sect or Khazarian mob are being systematically apprehended and cut off from all communications with the outside world.

Also last week two very high level attempts to release huge dollar and yen based funds worldwide were detected and stopped by unknown parties who acted to prevent these funds from falling into the hands of the usual bunch of old world order suspects.
In general, though, heavy secret horse-trading continues around the world as the attempt to create a fascist world government collapses.

A senior Chinese agent met with a White Dragon Society representative last week and
there was a friendly exchange of views. The view of the incoming Chinese government nominally headed by compromise candidate Xi Jinping is that China’s long term plan is to take over the Okinawan archipelago as a prelude to taking over Japan, according to the agent.

Ben Fulford (August 7 2012) ~ Summer Stalemate Continues But Lots Going On Under The Surface In Preparation For Autumn Regime Changes

Benjamin Fulford | August 7 2012

War and rumors of war continue to be promoted by terrorist states like the US, Israel and their secret ally Iran as the desperate criminal cabal that seized power in the West continues to hope they can trigger World War 3 and thus avoid bankruptcy. There are also continuing rumors of horrific new terrorist attacks by the cabal and their “Al CIAda” subsidiary (a nuclear attack on London being one possibility) in a desperate attempt to implement their plan for a fascist New World Order world government.

Their desperation and cynicism has reached the point that corporate propaganda media outlets do not even seem to notice as they report their governments are fighting “Al Qaeda” in Afghanistan even as they finance it in Syria and Libya.

The 150 nations BRICS alliance, for its part, continues to refuse to support terrorist financing groups like the European Central Bank and the Federal Reserve Board and is instead promoting the universal human goals of peaceful, environmentally friendly development.

Under the surface, meanwhile, power struggles continue in preparation for regime changes in China, the US and the EU this fall.

The cabal controlled Western governments are beating the war drums in part as a negotiating strategy first to get them past the September 31 fiscal half-year financial deadline and second to strengthen their hand in ongoing negotiations about the new financial system.

The situation for many Western governments is similar to that of an individual trying to postpone an inevitable bankruptcy. In this case, instead of bills piling up, all sorts of countries are trying to cash real bonds issued by members of the Western banking cartel only to run into a wall of excuses and delays.

For example, when an international group of investors tried to cash a large amount of Brazilian bonds recently, some key lawyers involved suddenly got violently ill while others recused themselves following death threats. The bonds are real but that does not help their case.

In Japan meanwhile, in addition to the 7000 trillion yen sitting frozen in the Bank of Japan’s computers, another 5000 trillion yen batch of bonds has turned up. The 5000 trillion yen worth of bonds in question were issued in the 1970’s when Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka of Japan restored diplomatic relations with China, according to Chinese government sources. Tanaka offered the money to China’s Zhou Enlai but he refused to accept them and said the Japanese people should use the money instead. These bonds then went into limbo but an Asian group now has them and is planning to cash them at the Bank of Japan and use the money for humanitarian projects.

Other large denomination US dollar gold backed bonds have also surfaced. The owners welcome legal scrutiny of these bonds because they are confident they are genuine, sources close to the owners say. This group would also like to use the bonds for humanitarian purposes.

Once again though, all they will be doing is to bring a real bill to a dead beat borrower.

Paul Craig Roberts ~ Washington’s Insouciance Has No Rival

Paul Craig Roberts | February 15 2012

Is Obama a hypocrite or merely insouciant? Or is he an idiot?

According to news reports Obama’s White House meeting on Valentine’s day with China’s Vice President, Xi Jinping, provided an opportunity for Obama to raise “a sensitive human rights issue with the Chinese leader-in-waiting.” The brave and forthright Obama didn’t let etiquette or decorum get in his way. Afterwards, Obama declared that Washington would “continue to emphasize what we believe is the importance of realizing the aspirations and rights of all people.”

Think about that for a minute. Washington is now in the second decade of murdering Muslim men, women, and children in six countries. Washington is so concerned with human rights that it drops bombs on schools, hospitals, weddings and funerals, all in order to uphold the human rights of Muslim people. You see, bombing liberates Muslim women from having to wear the burka and from male domination.

One hundred thousand, or one million, dead Iraqis, four million displaced Iraqis, a country with destroyed infrastructure, and entire cities, such as Fallujah, bombed and burnt with white phosphorus into cinders is the proper way to show concern for human rights.

Ditto for Afghanistan. And Libya.

In Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia Washington’s drones bring human rights to the people.
