Syraq SITREP 25: IAF F35 'Adirs' vs. Syria's Russian SAMs and Hezbollah

Syraq SITREP 25: IAF F35 'Adirs' vs. Syria's Russian SAMs and Hezbollah

Did two of the Israeli Air Force's Lockheed F35 jets get removed from service due to bird strikes, or because they had close encounters with Soviet vintage Syrian S200 SAMs?

That was the question asked by the respected among alt media websites Southfront.org, which was picked up by Zerohedge this week. However, the Russia Analyst believes, thanks to W the Intelligence Insider, that there is a third explanation for the reported temporary grounding of the two F35s. This theory ties in with advanced IAF/IDF preparations for an apparently delayed -- but hardly averted -- devastating second war between Israel and Hezbollah. A conflict W has warned in multiple RogueMoney radio programs will change the Middle East as we've known it.

Putin Cruises Through Valdai 2017

Putin Cruises Through Valdai 2017

All of a sudden, Artificial Intelligence in Russia has become a thing. Vladimir Putin was just one of several speakers at this week's Valdai Discussion Club to bring it up. Otherwise, his speech at Valdai was a bit conservative compared to what we've become accustomed to. Or perhaps Vladimir has been a bit pensive this October 2017, a month that marks the 100-year anniversary of the earth-changing Russian Revolution.

Ethereum's Buterin Weighs In On Notion Of Government-Issued Cryptocurrency In Next ‘Few Years’

Vitalik Buterin suggested that if a central bank were to issue a cryptocurrency in the next few years, the token would not represent a genuine blockchain use case.

Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin has stated that he is “not expecting to see any kind of large-scale, live central bank digital currency actually launched for another few years.” He added that “if it is, then I guarantee you that it will basically be a server with a bunch of marketing buzzwords to make it look like a blockchain.” He made the remark while participating in an October 17 panel discussion at Swell, a conference convened by blockchain firm Ripple in Toronto.

He believes that, at the moment, “there is nothing close to a central bank-issued digital currency that’s being launched because people don’t even fully understand what the economic model” associated with such an asset would look like. The fact that many central banks have been running various types of pilot programs on the Ethereum blockchain “doesn’t mean too much in practice,” he explained, because “these are ultimately all test projects.” Among the other blockchain use cases that governments are studying, he said, are revenue-tracking measures to combat corruption and a settlement coin that would operate “inside of a financial derivatives system.”

Buterin’s comments came on the heels of an announcement made by Russia’s minister of communications and mass media that President Vladimir Putin plans to develop and issue the cryptoruble. Russia is motivated to debut its state-backed cryptocurrency quickly, the minister explained, because “if we do not, then in two months our neighbors in the Eurasian Economic Community will do it.”

Other governments and central banks that are considering developing a digital currency includethe United Kingdom, the Netherlands, India, and Sweden.

As Buterin indicated during the discussion, he has himself been involved in conversations with central bankers about the ways in which state and financial institutions might deploy blockchain technology.

From "Fake News" to Fake Economics: Nobel Prize Committee Rewards a Faker

From "Fake News" to Fake Economics: Nobel Prize Committee Rewards a Faker

October 12 -- In the last year, since the Brexit vote in the U.K. and the election of Donald Trump in the U.S., there has been a growing awareness that the population in the Trans-Atlantic world is being subjected to a dangerous phenomenon known as "Fake News."  The distrust of all elites, including those who determine what is covered in newspapers and by the talking heads on television, is part of the dynamic of insurgency which is sweeping the west, and is manifest in the anti-establishment voting patterns, which are overturning "politics-as-usual."

London Paul and Team RogueMoney Told Ya: The Crypto-Ruble is Almost Here

From CoinTelegraph via Zerohedge.com comes the breaking news that President Vladimir Putin has ordered the accelerated roll out of a cryptocurrency backed by Russia's central bank.

While cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and ethereum received a great deal of attention at July's 2017 St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, notably through Putin's extensive meetings with ethereum's Russo-Canadian executive Vitalik Buterin, these reports indicate a move towards a sovereign cryptocurrency that, as RogueMoney regular contributor London Paul has forecast for many months, will be convertible to cash rubles and be asset (most likely gold) backed...

Renewing sanctions against Iran could be the final straw in ending dollar hegemony

Renewing sanctions against Iran could be the final straw in ending dollar hegemony

On Oct. 15, President Donald Trump is expected to de-certify the Iran deal brokered by former President Barack Obama months before his tenure in office was up.  And despite all the outcries from the neo-con establishment that Obama and the White House was 'bowing down' to another world leader and government when the deal allowed for a removal of economic sanctions, the reality is that Iran is not a terrorist threat on the nuclear stage, but are instead being persecuted because they are an even greater threat to the monetary hegemony of the U.S. empire.

Sponsors of House Resolution Against U.S. Role in Saudi War: ‘Stop the Unconstitutional War in Yemen!’

Sponsors of House Resolution Against U.S. Role in Saudi War: ‘Stop the Unconstitutional War in Yemen!’

Oct. 11, 2017 (EIRNS)—In an opinion piece published in the Oct. 10 The New York Times, Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) and Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) denounced the United States’ role in providing arms and warplanes to Saudi Arabia in the latter’s genocidal war against Yemen, and urge support for their bipartisan resolution, H.Con. Res 81, which would halt this action. The names of the bill’s other two co-sponsors, Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) and Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), don’t appear on the op-ed.

The authors argue that the Congress hasn’t authorized such U.S. military assistance to the Saudis, and thus it constitutes a violation of the Constitution. They warn that by providing missiles, assisting in selecting aerial bombing targets, and providing midair refueling for Saudi and United Arab Emirates jets, the United States is complicit in thousands of Yemeni deaths from indiscriminate airstrikes, as well as the "horrifying" starvation of millions.
