X22 Spotlight with London Paul Aug. 2017

X22 Spotlight with London Paul Aug. 2017

The Sirius Report's London Paul recorded an interview with Dave of the X22 Report earlier this week, prior to Thursday evening's Barcelona terror attack. London Paul dismisses the U.S. intelligence community 'assessment' that North Korea has ICBMs or miniaturized nuclear warheads capable of being fitted on long range rockets. He talks about the Trump Administration's pressure on China, which White House adviser Steve Bannon alluded to in an interview with the American Prospect magazine (with Bannon disavowing a U.S. preemptive strike saying a second Korean War could lead to millions of dead), dismissing the talk of a U.S.-China trade war in which Beijing holds all of the high cards.

London Paul says that the Pentagon and State Department are seeking talks with the Chinese to de-escalate tensions. He adds that there is tremendous mineral wealth in North Korea that the Hermit Kingdom has not yet tapped due to its economic isolation. A North Korea crisis for the cabal is a means to an end of blocking China's One Belt One Road (OBOR) from integrating the previously hostile Koreas and undermining Washington's control over Japan in the emerging multi-polar world.

London Paul goes on over the hour and eighteen minute interview to discuss other topics including the failed Saudi blockade against Qatar, Turkey's pivot to Russia and China, and much more. -- JWS

FBI Coup Plotters Escalate with the Race Card — Trump Being Set up for Riots and Assassination

FBI Coup Plotters Escalate with the Race Card — Trump Being Set up for Riots and Assassination

Thursday's terrorist attack ISIS is taking credit for in Barcelona, Catalunia (see Deb @BanksterSlayer Caruthers important article on the numerology of this atrocity) has barely dented the frenzied media coverage of President Donald Trump's allegedly insufficient denunciations of the Klu Klux Klan and neo-Nazism after the tragic death of a young woman in Charlottesville, Virginia. The legacy media is attempting to pressure, or more accurately choreograph, a growing number of supposedly moderate Republicans like Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) into denouncing the president, as the most partisan Democrats demand impeachment or more than hint at his assassination. Meanwhile, Vice News, a media outlet that made a name for itself covering the Maidan mayhem in Ukraine and the subsequent war in Donbass, is provocatively calling for a Taliban-style destruction of Mount Rushmore.

Barcelona Attack on 17th August

Barcelona Attack on 17th August

Another vehicle-as-weapon terrorist attack has taken place in Europe, this time during summer vacation in Barcelona, Spain. Some of us had a premonition for weeks that this date of 17-08-17 would not be passing quietly. Barcelona has such a rich history that we would be remiss to just write this off as another ISIS atrocity.

You Can Go Out and Play With The Others When You Have Finished Your Chores At Home…!

You Can Go Out and Play With The Others When You Have Finished Your Chores At Home…!

So Economic Mother Nature gets it and so does the overall market as it tunes up to reality!  I hear a few other indicators like a little “bitcoin” in the background.  The music of business is playing a clear, loud song, and the notes say that the US needs to quit wasting time with the North Korean useful idiot.  And one of the biggest reasons is they may not just be a useful idiot for the west, they might be an even more effective useful idiot or trading partner for the east, and the OBOR.

Tremonti Warns of Another Crash

Tremonti Warns of Another Crash

As longtime RogueMoney readers and listeners know, there's a reason the powers that be are amping up racial and red state vs. blue cities/urban/rural divide tensions. Whether the fights are about Confederate statues few black or white paid attention to before or the legacy media's demonization of President Donald Trump from 'Putin's puppet' to Klansman/'Nazi'/'White Nationalist': it's all a big distraction from the American and western economies coming apart.

Even Germany the star performer and outlier is slowing down under the weight of general EU stagflation exacerbated by sanctions designed to fuel FUD and wreck trade with Russia -- though the mainstream media are generally downplaying signs of slumping German growth or stagnation to boost Chancellor Angela Merkel's reelection to a 4th term. The Canadian and Australian housing bubbles pumped up by easy money and Chinese buying sprees are popping. Commercial real estate followed by the rent is too damn high bubble in the U.S. are certainly next. 

The central bankers know it's game over for the Fed put extend and pretend game they've played since 2008 -- hence the rumors of war with North Korea abroad and attempts to whip people into genuine fear of a second Civil War at home. -- JWS

How China’s Shenzhen Grew From Fishing Village into Major Financial Centre

How China’s Shenzhen Grew From Fishing Village into Major Financial Centre

Shenzhen started out as a market town with a population of around 30,000 people, located on the route of the Kowloon-Canton Railway. In 1979, Shenzhen was promoted to city-status and in 1980 it was designated China’s first Special Economic Zone (SEZ), through the initiative of former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping.

The removal of restrictions on business, its advantageous geographical location and the development of transport infrastructure caused a rapid inflow of investment from Hong Kong and other regions into the SEZ.

Two Paradigms, One Choice

Two Paradigms, One Choice

The strategic significance of the Aug. 11 telephone conversation between President Trump and Xi Jinping, as emphasized at the time by Helga Zepp-LaRouche, was further evident in yesterday's publication in Xinhua of China's "readout" on that call. It emphasized the same essential points contained in the earlier White House readout—including the need for a peaceful, negotiated solution to the Korean crisis—but added in conclusion that, "on the Korean nuclear issue, Trump said the United States fully understands China's efforts in resolving it, and is willing to continue to keep close contacts with Beijing on major international and regional issues of common concern."

Ukrainian Rockets' (North Korean) Red Glare

Ukrainian Rockets' (North Korean) Red Glare

Hours after we published a RogueMoney article on the U.S./NATO buildup against Russia in and around Ukraine, The New York Times reported that the Ukrainian rocket engines firm Yuzhmash illicitly shipped powerful boosters to North Korea. These engines originally designed in the Soviet Union for ICBMs like the SS-18 'Satan' are said to account for North Korea's major leap in missile range achieved in recent tests. Yuzhmash is of course, like many other Soviet legacy Ukrainian industries, facing ruin due to the cutoff of trade with Russia since 2014.

With the recently passed UN Security Council (UNSC) sanctions supported by Russia and China potentially opening the door to sanctioning any nation that proliferates nuclear or missile technology to Pyongyang, not suprisingly Yuzhmash and the U.S.-backed Kiev government are denying everything. But the story is coming at a difficult time for Kiev, as a growing number of Americans ask why neo-Nazi and torchlight marches chanting 'blood and soil' are unacceptable in Charlottesville, Virginia but sponsored by the American taxpayer and Arizona U.S. Sen. John McCain via funding for the Ukrainian National Guard's SS rune flag waving Azov Battalion...

The Javelins of August: Deep State Plans for Escalation in Ukraine

The Javelins of August: Deep State Plans for Escalation in Ukraine

One of the fallacies of modern warfare is that weapons, not fighting men, win wars. The motivation of Donbass native volunteers to defend their homes and home towns remains higher than that of Ukrainian conscripts to bleed and die for the idea of a 'united Ukraine' or 'repulsing Russian aggression'. This is a problem Washington's politicians, the CIA and the Pentagon have not been able to solve in three years, after humiliating Ukrainian Army defeats in Ilovaisk outside Donetsk, the still unacknowledged by Kiev late July/early August 2014 slaughter of UAF personnel in the 'southern cauldron' along the Russian border, and the rout in the crossroads town of Debaltsevo. But that doesn't mean the neocons have given up trying.

On August 1, the neocon mouthpiece Wall Street Journal editorial board admitted the objective of supplying the Kiev government with new Javelin missiles isn't victory over the 'separatists', but killing Russia's proxies and Russian advisers in the Donbass. One problem with that, and the very good reason the Obama Administration hesitated to take a step the supposed Putin-installed Trump White House is now considering, is that attrition can go both ways. Russia is more than capable of upping the ante -- including via proxy targeting of NATO advisers who 'aren't' officially observing just behind the front lines of the conflict. Moscow could also tear up gentlemen's agreements it maintains with Israel against arming the likes of Hezbollah or arm the Yemenis capable of killing America's Saudi/UAE allies in the Mideast...

Southfront Interview with The Saker, 08-12-2017

Southfront Interview with The Saker, 08-12-2017

Southfront.org, one of the Russia Analyst's go to sites for maps and updates on the Syria conflict, has posted their interview with my friend Andrei Raevsky aka The Saker. In this hour and forty minute plus interview, the Florida resident discusses his background, including a dismissal from the Swiss military's general staff after earning degrees in strategic studies from Johns Hopkins. The Saker also mentions some of his favorite themes, including the fact that sanctions target Europe as much as Russia, and the degeneration of multiple and often contradictory American foreign policies run by the White House, CIA, and Pentagon (with the latter two groups insurgents killing each other in Syria as recently as last summer) into 'not-agreement capable' (недоговороспособны).

"God forbid" The Saker half-jokes, "that peace or cooperation would break out" according to Donald Trump's campaign promise to improve relations with Moscow. "It's absolutely fascinating to observe, that basically the masks [the deep state has worn] are slowly but gradually falling off." -- JWS
