Is Putin riding on Greece to help end the sanctions against Russia from the EU?

Ever since the U.S. imposed economic sanctions on Russia in the early part of 2014, the European Union has followed Washington's policy like a lapdog or a vassal state.  But the effects of these bi-lateral sanctions have caused immense strains between the political and economic segments of each nation within the EU, culminating in numerous protests, strikes, and even rises in new radical political parties. ...

As the Russian economy stands above the U.S. and Europe, Western investors rush in despite sanctions

Just as the U.S. Congress goes out of its way to allow insider trading and non-Obamacare health insurance among its own members, so too do policies like economic sanctions only exist for non-U.S. corporations and governments.  And as both the Eurozone and Wall Street continue to wallow in zero and negative interest rate environments, and extremely flat economies, the one country that the U.S. has targeted f ...

Zimbabwe becomes newest economy to demand an end to sanctions against Russia

Earlier this week, a majority of France's parliament voted to end their nation's policy of Russian sanctions in light of a continuing deterioration in their economic output.  And on April 30 another economy, this one from Africa, joined its voice in calling for an end of trade restrictions against Russia that were forged out of Washington's desire for a resurgence of a cold war against Moscow. The condemnat ...

Despite numerous false flag terror attacks to keep France in line, French MP’s vote to remove sanctions against Russia

For several years now, France has been slowly moving away from U.S. hegemony and into better relations with Vladimir Putin and Russia.  And in response to this, the EU nation has experienced numerous assassinations and false flag terror attacks that mirror those done under Operation Gladio from the Cold War days. Yet even with all of this, on April 28 members of France's parliament voted to lift their parti ...

After losses of over $20 billion, German businesses ready to end EU sanctions against Russia

As we have mentioned many times before, the economic symbiosis between European industry and Russia cannot be downplayed lightly since each earns billions of dollars per year in their transfers of energy and goods.  And going into the third year of U.S. imposed sanctions with Russia over the Kiev coup that Europe has summarily joined in with, the costs are continuing to climb to the point where businesses a ...

Foreigners dump dollars in January at the highest rate on record

From August of last year through December, foreigners dumped more than $550 billion in dollar based assets as the demise of the petrodollar in global trade continues to expand.  And as we begin 2016, a new report out for January shows that more treasuries were dumped in that month alone than in any month on record. The previous high of $48.1 billion in treasuries sent back to the U.S. was shattered in Janua ...

Some members within Eurozone have had enough with sanctions directed at Russia

Back in December, the European Union (EU) voted to once again follow in lock-step with their U.S. masters by extending sanctions against Russia for another seven months through July of 2016.  But as the global economy continues its perilous decline in nearly every industrial region, some members of the EU appear to have had enough, and are either bypassing sanctions altogether to establish new business deal ...

Saudi Arabia’s gambit to force down oil prices may lead to Russia becoming the new head of global cartel

Since the early 1970's, the U.S. has relied upon Saudi Arabia's place at the head of the global oil market to protect the dollar and its position as the global reserve currency.  But what would happen to the dollar, and America's future if a different nation wrested control from the House of Saud? That question may actually be coming upon us very soon as a paradigm shift is quickly taking place in the after ...

Vietnam Redux: U.S. continues to arm terrorists despite ongoing ceasefire talks in Syria

During the Vietnam War, the North Vietnamese army, or Viet Cong, would use cease fire meetings called for by the United States to secure positions and re-arm themselves before breaking the cease fire and waging war once again against the South.  This occurred numerous times between 1968 and 1973, with the U.S. falling for this ruse over and over despite the fact they were just days or weeks away from victor ...

China to buy Chicago Stock Exchange

As the U.S. continues to lose infrastructure and other assets to foreigners holding trillions in dollar reserves, some of the most significant transfers are now occurring in the financial sector.  A few years back, Russia purchased Morgan Stanley's oil trade desk which provided them significant leverage in the global petrodollar system, and in the same year China purchased J.P. Morgan's headquarter building ...

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 ...

France ready to lead the way for Europe in removing sanctions against Russia

One of the more interesting items to come out of Davos it appears is a friendlier attitude toward Russia and their leader Vladimir Putin by European powers.  And with Britain and France already breaking protocols with NATO recently over the ISIS threat, the question that is rising is whether Europe as a whole is ready to break away from their long standing affiliation with U.S. foreign policy. On Jan. 24, F ...
