План Трампа: Cooperation Between the U.S. and Russian Petrostates?

План Трампа: Cooperation Between the U.S. and Russian Petrostates?

One of the undisputed keys to the revival of Russia’s fortunes under President Vladimir Putin has been his leveraging of the world’s largest country and its immense natural resource base to finance military and vital infrastructure improvements. Putin wrote his 1996 economics dissertation in St. Petersburg “Strategic Planning of the Reproduction of the Mineral Resource Base of a Region under Conditions of the Formation of Market Relations” (which Putin’s critics at RFE/RL, Brookings Institute and the Langley/Bezos Post insist was ghostwritten) about the state leveraging oil and gas production to benefit the population, as in Russia’s Arctic neighbors Norway and Alaska.

Although overlooked by the media and deep state manufactured hysteria over Trump’s ‘treasonous’ praise for Putin and their dialogue in Helsinki, CNBC did report Putin’s proposal that the U.S. and Russia work together to regulate the oil price. If implemented this plan would make Moscow, which already cooperates with leading OPEC cartel member and petrodollar pillar Riyadh, into a partner with Washington in keeping energy prices within an acceptable range. As Putin said, it would not be advantageous to the American or global economies to see prices rise too high, nor see them collapse and thereby wreck shale oil production (he didn’t need to add, also hurting Russia and the ruble in the process as the Obama Administration and globalists tried to do in an coordinated piece of economic warfare in late 2014 — Moscow would take military action to boost its leverage against the Saudis and Qataris the following autumn in Syria).

Putin knows very well that President Reagan’s CIA director William Casey worked with the Saudis to drive down the price of oil in the late 1980s, hastening the demise of the Soviet Union which had then posted the young KGB officer and his family to Dresden in East Germany. As W the Intelligence Insider says regarding that period ‘we took out the Soviet Union and the ruble but almost lost Texas’ leading to the 1989-93 recession and ‘handover’ of power from the Bushes to the Clintons. However, in an ironic role reversal, it is now the fragile U.S. economy which needs Russian cooperation to maintain a moderate to higher price, so that highly indebted frackers stay profitable as interest rates rise and steel/aluminum trade wars (including Cold War 2 sanctions on Russian metals) drive up pipeline costs. Indeed, the main problem with the shale boom is the high depletion rate of the wells, which in turn requires cheap money from the Fed and high debt loads to manage (it was no accident that fracking took off in the mid-2000s with a loose post dot.com crash and 9/11 monetary policy).

Sen. Rand Paul Praises President, Says ‘Trump Is Right To Meet Putin’

Sen. Rand Paul Praises President, Says ‘Trump Is Right To Meet Putin’

Kentucky Senator and ophthalmologist Paul may not be his libertarian legend father Dr. Ron Paul, but he is emerging as a staunch defender of President Trump’s sincere desire for detente with Russia. For challenging the bipartisan hysteria over Trump’s #HelsinkiSummit press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin, he has received hatred from #TheResistance and its likely paid trolls online, who tweet congratulations to Paul’s former neighbor Rene Boucher, now awaiting federal sentencing for battering a member of Congress.

Together with Fox News hosts Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson, who rhetorically asked why his son should have to die for newly admitted NATO member state Montenegro (notably omitting Russia, as opposed to irredentist greater Albania nationalists, as the likely aggressor), Paul is one of the leading defenders of dialogue with Moscow. Paul made very clear in a pre-summit interview with CNN’s Russiagate pusher Jake Tapper that he does not excuse or apologize for all of Russia’s foreign policy actions, but that Washington needed to admit it reneged on a promise not to expand NATO eastward given to the Russians as Germany reunified in 1990.

In an interview with Fox News that followed the mostly Trump friendly network’s hosts criticizing the President for being too soft on Putin and the Robert Mueller indictments-alleged ‘election hacking’ of the Democratic National Committee, Paul referred to ex-CIA director John Brennan as ‘unhinged’. He also reminded the audience that John Brennan who is today shrieking about Trump being a Russian agent cast a vote for the Communist Party presidential candidate as a ‘protest vote’ during the 1970s, at a time when the U.S. and USSR were locked in the last Cold War.

Trump and Putin: The New Paradigm in Action, Sending Traitors into Hysterical Fits of Rage

Trump and Putin: The New Paradigm in Action, Sending Traitors into Hysterical Fits of Rage

The historic summit today between Presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin has marked a dramatic phase-shift in history. It is the result of a long, difficult battle, led in no small part by Lyndon LaRouche over the past fifty years, to create an alignment of interests among the great nations and cultures of history as the necessary and sufficient force required to end the tyranny of the British Empire once and for all. In particular, LaRouche posed that cooperation among "Four Powers" — Russia, China, India, and the United States (representing the distillation of the best of European culture) — could replace the broken Western financial system centered in London and Wall Street with a new paradigm, based not on monetary power and colonial wars, but on a credit system to bring peace and prosperity through mutual development for all nations.

Before stepping into the private, one-on-one meeting with Putin, Trump told the press that they would be discussing many things, mentioning, in particular, that Russia and the U.S. were cooperating with "our mutual friend President Xi."

God Save the Tsar: Putin, Trump Meet on the 100th Anniversary of Bolshevik Regicide

God Save the Tsar: Putin, Trump Meet on the 100th Anniversary of Bolshevik Regicide

Monday not only marks the summit between Presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, but also the 4th anniversary of Malaysian Airlines flight 17 being shot down over eastern Ukraine. Most importantly, Trump and Putin are meeting on the 100th anniversary of the night the New York and City of London banker sponsored Bolshevik revolutionaries murdered Tsar Nicholas II and his family in the cellar of Ipatiev House in Yekaterinburg. In the years after the Revolution, Soviet anti-Christian propaganda tours would pose for photographic ‘selfies’ in front of the bullet hole scarred cellar wall, in a sick celebration of the regicide that symbolized their Satanic war on God and His anointed sovereign in Rus.

By 1977, the Soviet authorities were embarrassed over the structure becoming a place of pilgrimage for Orthodox believers mourning the Tsar, and Ipatiev House was ordered demolished ahead of the 70th anniversary of the October Revolution by regional party secretary Boris Nikolayevich Yeltsin. By ‘coincidence’ or divine Providence, Boris Nikolayevich, whose patronymic matched the name of the martyred Tsar Nicholas, would rapidly ascend the Soviet Communist Party ranks under premier Mikhail Gorbachev in the 1980s. After a stint as the mayor of Moscow and usurping his patron Gorbachev, Yeltsin would become the first President of a post-Soviet Russian Federation. On the 80th anniversary of the Royal Martyrs deaths twenty years ago this day, Yeltsin joined in the burial of their remains at St. Petersburg’s Peter and Paul Cathedral.

In his final act as President, Yeltsin appointed an obscure former KGB agent from the same city named Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin as his successor on the eve of the millennium. Three years later, in a nod to the German origins of the last Tsarina of Russia Alexandra Feodorovna of Hesse, President Putin would meet German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder at the Church on Blood in Honour of All Saints Resplendent in the Russian Land consecrated on the site of Ipatiev House.

#Romanovs100: Unsettled Scores

#Romanovs100: Unsettled Scores

Doesn’t she remind you of the Bionic Woman? Nicoletta Romanoff is one of the great-great-great-great-granddaughters of Tsar Nicholas I. That is a diamond bracelet on her wrist, but, alas, it’s not part of the Romanov family jewels. Nicoletta works like anybody else as an actress and model. (Photo credit here.) She is one of hundreds of people across Europe and Asia who can legitimately claim a blood connection to the unhappy Romanov monarchy, a family butchered by agents of the Bolshevik Party 100 years ago tomorrow. Do you think Putin will be thinking about that as he begins his political chess match with Donald John Trump in Helsinki at the same time? And what will the American president be bringing to that table?

The Other Mideast War: Saudi/UAE Siege of Hodeidah Fails, Houthis Step Up Attacks Inside the Kingdom

The Other Mideast War: Saudi/UAE Siege of Hodeidah Fails, Houthis Step Up Attacks Inside the Kingdom

With the global media’s eyes will be fixed Monday on the summit between Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Donald Trump at Helsinki, Finland, Syria is expected to be the main topic of negotiations between the world’s two leading military powers. Israeli media in particular have extensively covered a prospective bargain between Putin and Trump, whereby invited Iranian forces withdraw from Syria in return for the U.S. pulling its troops out of its uninvited and thereby illegal under international law bases east of the Euphrates River. Some Israelis, affiliated with the neocons, having bitterly denounced Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for allegedly placing naive trust in Putin’s word, while foreign policy realists have pointed out the Russian leader cannot make the Iranians leave Syria — even if he wanted to do so.

However, as RogueMoney readers are aware, there is another conflict besides the proxy war with Iran in Syria, that petrodollar linchpin Saudi Arabia has been losing since 2015. This one is much closer to home and therefore more dangerous to the Saudi monarchy than losing influence in the Levant. The defection of a prince from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Qatar, Riyadh’s gas-rich Sunni rival, has shined a spotlight on the Emiratis casualties in the Yemen War, and serious dissension inside the Emirates ruling houses regarding the Saudi-led coalition’s quagmire.

Since the Saudis broke off diplomatic relations with Doha in June 2017, Qatar’s Al-Jazeera channel has relentlessly covered the staggering humanitarian costs of the Saudis war on Yemen, as well as the Kingdom’s covered up combat deaths which Western media outlets, fearing expulsion from the country, fail to cover. On Sunday, Putin handed Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani a ceremonial FIFA soccer ball symbolizing Qatar’s 2022 hosting of the World Cup.

Mueller uses meaningless indictments to continue deep state vilification of both Russia and cryptocurrencies

Mueller uses meaningless indictments to continue deep state vilification of both Russia and cryptocurrencies

Just as the timing of school shootings, false flags, and even geopolitical events occur as smoke screens in the wake of something that potentially could change the status quo (see the 'random MP knifing just days before the Brexit vote), so too does the Deep State use information drops as a means to change the focus of attention from the people prior to the birth of a new paradigm.  And thus it should not be surprising that on July 13 the Mueller led Special Council came out with new indictments against Russian actors in attempt to derail President Trump's summit with Vladimir Putin.

Syraq SITREP 61: SAA Liberating SW Syria Despite Israeli Strikes, Putin Meets Netanyahu Ahead of Helsinki Summit with Trump

On July 11-12 the warm up act before the Helsinki summit between Russian President Vladimir Putin and President Donald Trump took place in Moscow. This was Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Uncle Sam’s BFF whom Congress once gave a standing ovation, praising the Anglo-American deep state and the legacy media’s enemy no. 1 Putin for Russia’s superb hosting of the 2018 World Cup. Netanyahu then joined Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and Croatia’s Prime Minister in watching the Croats 2-1 win over England at Luzhniki Stadium. After the pleasantries and Netanyahu’s posturing over the Israeli shoot down of a Syrian unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) followed by IAF missile strikes against structures along the Golan Heights line of contact, negotiations (which were well along the last time Bibi came to Moscow for the Victory Day holiday on May 9) resumed behind closed doors.
