Analysts declare OPEC as finished, which opens door for power vacuum in energy sphere

As last week's OPEC meeting in Vienna came to a close, once again no consensus was formed on price and production levels, leaving OPEC to now be what many analysts are calling, a dead and finished organization.

Removal of sanctions on Iran have suddenly made the Middle Eastern economy the new frontier

The nation of Iran has waited close to a decade to remove their U.S. imposed shackles and break out of sanctions that forced the oil producer to seek revenues from black market mechanisms.  But in just a few short months since Washington signed an agreement with Tehran to have their sanctions lifted, they are suddenly being courted by countries desperate to find a new market for their exports. And like Afri ...

Putin calls out G20 nations for funding ISIS

If there is one thing Russian President Vladimir Putin is a master at is gathering and holding intelligence until it can be used for a strategic purpose.  Many sources believe that Putin holds disastrous intel on what really happened to the Twin Towers on 9/11, and more recently, his information on what really happened to flight MH17 kept the Dutch from crucifying Russia in the aftermath of the tragedy.

Forget Syria, Iran and Saudi Arabia moving into Russian camp

One of the most poignant and important things about the ongoing Russian occupation in Syria is that President Assad invited Putin to send in troops and arms to fight Islamic terror groups, while the U.S. led ISIS and militant rebels are little more than rogue offenders seeking to illegally bring down a sovereign government.  And despite all the rhetoric being used against Russia by the Western media, suppor ...

How long can Saudi Arabia still hold out with low oil prices?

Earlier this year, Saudi Arabia decided to put all their chips on the table for a gambit that they believed would crush foreign oil producers, and allow them to remain at the top of the global oil scheme despite their dwindling supply problems.  However, even with the U.S. fracking industry being decimated by declines in prices, the Saudi's have not been able to crack Russia's hold on production and distrib ...

Mr. Netanyahu goes to Washington to try to get U.S. to fight war for Israel once again

There has been a long standing love affair between the U.S. and Israel, with much of it being tied to either the elite's support of Rothschild's Zionism, or the Christian religion's support of the Jew and the land.  But in the now 68 years of this U.S. - Israeli alliance, one thing stands out above all. Israel has several times since 1947 used the U.S. to fight its wars, and fund its hegemony.  And in no bi ...

Geo-political battle lines continue to be drawn with new Russian-Iranian military agreement

During the Cold War, the world was pretty much separated into two spheres of alliances.  In the West there was NATO and SEATO, which encompassed Democratically led nations in partnership with the Untied States.  And in the East were the countries tied to the Warsaw Pact under the authority of Moscow and the former Soviet Union. But since the end of the Cold War in the early 90's, alliances have been primari ...

China docks war ship in Iran as Petro-Yuan goes head to head with Petro-Dollar

The proxy war for control over the global reserve currency heated up another notch on Sept. 21 as China sailed a destroyer through the Straits of Hormuz and docked in an Iranian port just miles away from an American fleet docked in the UAE.  The meaning behind this move is not mysterious as China is quickly drawing the line that U.S. sanctions on one of their oil partners will no longer be tolerated, and th ...

Iran deals with criminal bank fraud the old fashioned way… they hung him

In the Western banking world where financiers own and control the nation's politicians, fraud, abuse, and corruption are not just a rare anomaly in the market, but it is how business is done.  And with no major bankers ever being prosecuted by both the Bush and Obama administrations, simply paying small fines have only resulted in an increase to the fraud and theft. But in the world of Islam, money and bank ...
