Before the Aswan Dam rudely interrupted thousands of years of sacred agricultural cycles in 1971 (the same year that Nixon closed the gold window, ironically), ((or not)), the farmers along the Nile River would patiently await the arrival of their precious morning star Sirius about an hour before sunrise early in our month of August. Once they saw their goddess glowing in the pre-dawn sky, they knew that the annual flooding of the Nile was near, bringing life-giving fertile silt to the soil, and all would be well for another harvest and period of prosperity. All economic activity in Egypt, and hence to some extent, all commercial activity in the Middle East, revolved around that summertime sky ballet.
Sadly, the dam now prevents the flooding of the Nile and farmers get to rely on Monsanto for fertility. But Isis is never to be denied her role in geopolitics, not when there continues to be a long unbroken line of money-changers who operate via secret societies and public corporations who still deem it their natural right to control the world you live in. Therefore we can expect no less from this year's rise of pre-dawn Sirius scheduled to occur on the mornings of August 8 and 9 at latitudes approximate with the Giza Pyramid in the northern hemisphere, from about 30 degrees north and up to 40 degrees.
We will not be disappointed. The date August 9th does in fact see the meeting of two pivotal world leaders. On this coming Tuesday, the Sultan of what now appears to be the about-to-be resurrected Ottoman empire, Recep Erdogan, will arrive in Moscow for a business meeting with that man upon whom we keep encouraging you to keep your eyes focused, Vladimir Putin. And item #1 on the docket will likely by the go-ahead for the Turk Stream pipeline.
Erdogan has high hopes for Turkey's deal of the millennium, even referring to Vlad as his "old friend." Erdogan was quoted as saying: “This will be a historic visit, a fresh start. I believe that a new page will be opened [during] ... the negotiations with my friend Vladimir.”
Washington and the EU have their panties in a bunch over this meeting. For one thing, the alliance comes at a time when the people of Turkey have finally roused themselves to confront that extra-territorial bully who goes around launching coups and revolutions wherever he feels it's in his interests to do so. Lawsuit upon lawsuit is being slammed on high ranking American generals and national security directors who apparently have masterminded the coup against Erdogan last month. (see James's recent post here.) Somebody has finally stood up to the CIA and NATO and pulled back the curtain.
For another thing, the EU is nervous because the Turk Stream pipeline also represents a major shift on the chessboard. As this writer for the Asia Times put it:
From the Russian point of view, rapprochement with Turkey anchored on deepening economic cooperation – over TurkStream, $20 billion Russian nuclear plant, tourism, etc. – not only promotes mutually beneficial business ties but also creates powerful interest groups in Turkey who are stakeholders in the strategic ties with Russia....
The visits to Ankara on successive days by the Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford and the CoE Secretary-General Thornjorn Hoagland underscore the sense of disquiet in Washington and Brussels, and a last-minute bid to slow down the pace of the Turkish-Russian rapprochement.
However, a "slow down of the pace of the Turkish-Russian rapprochement" does not appear to be in the stars because that's not the only earth-shift that is taking place in early August. Keep an eye on the unfolding of the SDR-denominated bond issuance by China which our own Ken Schortgen just posted about earlier this week.
An article at Nikkei.com (linked here) indicates that China is ready to begin offering the instruments anytime now. And whoa! Even Japanese megabanks want in on the deal! All we can say now is, Will the last person who leaves the Fed please turn out the lights?
The government-linked China Development Bank as early as this month will issue $300 million to $800 million in notes denominated in the International Monetary Fund's reserve currency, with maturities of around six months. This will mark the first float of SDR-denominated bonds by an individual financial institution.
The China Development Bank has informed domestic and foreign banks about the float, with Japan's three megabanks among those expressing interest. Other major Chinese banks apparently are planning SDR bond offerings as well. The government will open trading of these instruments on the interbank market.
Jim Willie has added some further information about the role that China is playing in this great reset process. He finally had it confirmed from one of his top sources, "Euro Raj," that the BIS (Bank of International Settlements) has been in conference for at least two months (remember how the BIS was already meeting ahead of #Brexit) with the Chinese top bankers and ministers of finance. Jim explains what else the Chinese are up to, gold-wise, near the 42min mark with host Dave of the website X22Report.com:
Jim: "The basis of their negotiations is to take the international contracts and swap them out of the Dollar and into Gold. So, for example, the Indians would be paid by the Saudis in gold (etc.) The point here is that all global contracts would no longer be in the dollar. They would be in gold. And you can't do that without settling and agreeing upon, across the board, with all the principal parties, the dollar-to-gold conversion. They are talking about a USD $5000 price per ounce for gold.
Dave: "So they're haggling over the Dollar and Gold and what they're going to fix it at? The price they're going to fix the Trade at?"
Jim: "Exactly." (Near the end of the show, Jim hints at the connection between the SDR bond issuance to this gold fix mechanism):
"Why is Basel [the BIS] giving rules to the U.S. banks? Why is a Swiss private bank giving rules to the private U.S. banking industry? The answer is simple. Because the U.S. is not a sovereign nation. The U.S. is a vassal state under the Khazarian Nazi Banker model with their financial power in Basel. And that's why Basel is negotiating with China on the global international contract centered on the Dollar to switch it over to Gold....
Really soon Basel is going to start making a lot of noise about how the IMF and the Special Drawing Rights [SDR] basket of currencies recently invited the Chinese RMB ... they're moving around the basket percentages and the biggest loser is the Euro ... you're going to see a lot of Euro bonds converted to Chinese bonds in order to facilitate this new percentage introduction. But what the elite in Basel want to do is to have the IMF produce the new major currency: a gold-backed, super-sovereign SDR basket currency of the five majors. And that will instantly, as they claim, provide stability among the five major currencies. [They want] the IMF to step in and "save the day" as agent for the BIS. Basel will hold all the world's gold. And if you want to participate in this, you can hand over your gold to serve as collateral for gold trade notes to guarantee your trade payments, your supply chain. And if you don't have any gold, they will lease you some gold....
But I don't think Russia and China will let that happen.
With about five cents' worth of deductive reasoning, you can see how China's issuance of SDR-bonds will marry well with this BIS upcoming deal to re-negotiate all nations' trade agreements based on a uniform currency system and a common gold fix. China, the BIS, and the IMF have, love them or hate them, come up with a plan that can effect a global transition away from the US Dollar. Just use your imagination to see how SDR-denominated bonds can assist countries who need to build reserves but don't have much of their own gold. Certainly we now see a way that all this swapping out of the Dollar can be accomplished.
So, folks, don your galoshes and prepare for the flooding of the Nile. The stars are in alignment and the die has been cast. The seedlings are ready to put down roots in the fertile soil of the Global Economic Reset.
Oh, one other tidbit that should make Jeff Berwick of DollarVigilante.com smile. In researching the movements of the star Sirius, I stumbled on an interesting science fact that connects the dots of Sirius to the Shemitah. Sirius is actually a binary star system, and may even be a triple star system. This means that there is a "Sirius B" star who rotates in an orbit around its companion "Sirius A". The two stars follow a measurable cycle of time in their gravitational attraction and repulsion. The point of closest connection between the two stars in their regular orbital cycle is called their "periastron."
And you'll never guess how long is their periastron cycle?
You guessed it. 50 years.
And it just so happens that the last periastron of the Sirius companion stars took place in 1994, one of those 7-year "crash" cycles. Which means that we are right now just about half way into the next cycle. The two stars are coming closer and closer. Not unlike all those chess pieces who are now in a mad rush to line up behind the new powers of those Stars in the East.
