Three years of declining economic growth in the European Union since they chose to stand lock-step with the United States on sanctions against Russia have brought the coalition of European countries to a turning point. And the one nation holding the best cards to take advantage of this is China.
There can not be foreign control and positive “vig” to be made on any US paper if it doesn’t pile up in foreign hands. De-industrialization wasn’t the most important “globalist-show” on display. Instead it was a centuries old Rothschild axiom: “Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws!” All the banksters needed was a receptive US audience foolish enough to believe that it is a birthright to “shop until they drop in order to keep up with the Jones’s.” Ironically, it became fashionable. Problem…….
The problem is, as stated many times before, even though there is an extremely positive side of being the world’s reserve currency it still has a time limit. A limit we are at the end of. And once time runs out, all of the positives go with it. And that introduces the following downside for the resident citizen slaves of the world’s reserve currency, the introduction to a problem with a negative multiplier tied to the currency's inflation/devaluation in some form or fashion. But there is a head above the crowd winner…..
Earlier this month, a vote was passed, 17-2, by a committee within the European Parliament to give legal personhood to robots. Ostensibly, this is being done for your own good. Technocratic vision predicts that the day will come when you'll want to hold a robot accountable for murder. (Hopefully not your own.) Wouldn't you love to play the defense lawyer in THAT trial?
In ancient Persia the Parthian shot was associated with fierce horse mounted archers who could feign retreat, then pivot on their galloping steeds to let loose a fusillade of deadly arrows. As lame duck Barack Hussein Obama prepares to leave the White House, quite probably convinced by his own agitprop campaign that those hacking Russians cost his fellow Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton the White House, Poland is the scene of a Parthian shot involving a highly visible surge of American armor and artillery.
The alternative or new media is certainly joining the legacy media in hyping the deployment alongside Fox News Channel headlines such as 'Knocking on Russia's Door' -- for a brigade stationed at Zagan, far closer to Germany than to Russia's Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad which borders northeastern Poland to the east -- though other battalions will be deployed to the Baltics much closer to Russia. While 'debunkers of Russian propaganda' nitpick that 'Kremlin TV' like Rossiya report 3,000 total U.S. vehicles being shipped in the NATO deployment rather than the 2,500 mentioned in Stars and Stripes (with around 4,000 American soldiers), the fact is Obama is deliberately leaving Trump with yet another obstacle -- this one a heavily armored one that's politically difficult to withdraw -- to the U.S.-Russia detente The Donald has advocated.
On Jan. 14 President-Elect Donald Trump spoke with the Wall Street Journal and reiterated his desire towards seeking to improve relations with both Russia and China, and at the same time masterfully playing his obfuscation card with the media on what policies he truly intends to implement. In fact, his ability to promote both sides of an issue to different audiences has become one of The Donald's most powerful traits... which is the ability to go back and forth on a given topic without getting labeled with the politically divisive term 'flip-flopper'.
Late Saturday night, Zerohedge cited Bloomberg reporting that Donald J. Trump's first trip abroad as President would be to the Icelandic capitol of Reykjavik, where President Ronald Reagan and Soviet General Secretary (later President) Mikhail Gorbachev famously held a summit putting ALL nuclear arms issues on the table between the USA and USSR in October 1986. However, according to President elect Trump's spokesman Sean Spicer the reports which also included the Washington based newspaper The Hill were false -- although the Icelanders told Russia's TASS news agency they were ready to host such talks. Trump's first trip abroad as president has yet to be announced and may not be until after Friday's inauguration.
The timing of the reports comes days after The Washington (Langley mouthpiece) Post David Ignatius accused Trump's National Security Adviser, who did not require Senate confirmation, Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn of improper communications with Russian Ambassador Sergey Ivanovich Kislyak. According to the WaPost's intelligence 'sources' Flynn spoke with Kislyak several times by phone on the day President Obama announced the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats from the U.S., allegedly in retaliation for Russian hacking related to the elections and mistreatment of American envoys in Russia. But Trump spokesman Spicer denies the conversations were at all improper or usurping the lame duck Obama Administration, and instead concerned Flynn extending holiday greetings and condolences to the Russian people on the loss of the Alexandrov Ensemble in a plane crash a few days before. Spicer also said Flynn was trying to arrange a phone call between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Trump after Trump is to take office.
V the Guerrilla Economist hosts Ken Schortgen Jr., Deb @BanksterSlayer Caruthers, and W the Intelligence Insider to discuss the major economic shocks coming in the rest of 2017, including the global bond market crisis of negative interest rates, the rollout of blockchain technology through EuroClear and SWIFT. Ken reveals that known CIA front USAID was involved in India's chaos-inducing war on cash experiment, and also asks how gold and bitcoin prices would move if just one percent of the currency invested in bonds sifted into precious metals and the borderless, non-central bank controlled cryptocurrency. V also mentions the global 6.2 billion who are either unbanked or underbanked, from Africa to the New Silk Road slated nations of former Soviet Central Asia, and the decentralization of the Internet and crypto-currency transactions. - JWS
Many observers in the new media have noticed an intriguing numerological 'stat' regarding the inauguration of president elect Donald J. Trump: after he is sworn in on January 21, 2017 he will be 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old. But there's another 'coincidence' we just discovered about Mr. Trump's wife, Melania Knauss (Knavs), who was born in the predominantly Roman Catholic country of Slovenia, in the former Yugoslavia on April 26, 1970 (and will be 46 when her husband takes office).
Today Friday, January 13, exactly seven days before Inauguration Day, happens to be the feast day under the old Russian Orthodox calendar of Melania's patron saint, Melania of Rome, who was canonized by the Roman Church in 1908 as a godly patroness of the Faith who used her great wealth to spread the Holy Gospel.
A timely reminder, that not all the numbers are playthings of the esoteric elites and those enslaved to the evil one. - JWS
On Thursday January 12 French National Front politician Marine Le Pen visited Trump Tower. Her host was not president elect Donald J. Trump, but (Guido) George Lombardi, an Italian businessman friend and neighbor of Trump's in the building.
According to Mr. Lombardi, speaking to the neolibcon rag The Daily Beast on Thursday night, counselor to the president and former Breitbart News publisher Steve Bannon was informed about the meeting by Lombardi and gave a verbal thumbs up. The subject of discussion, according to Lombardi, was fundraising for Le Pen's run for president of France, which has been blackballed by French banks, due to her 'far right' views, but in reality as punishment for Le Pen defying the NATO/EU consensus on Russia.
