Warmongers in Congress vote overwhelmingly to arm Ukraine and bring world closer to war

On March 24, the U.S. House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly once again to give the President military authority to send arms and constructs of war to the Kiev government in Ukraine.  This is not the first time the House or Senate has voted on such a course of action, but illustrates just how much the warmongers in government desperately want to create new conflicts and attempt to mask how dire the e ...

Russia slaps neo-con warmonger John McCain with sanctions

While the imposing of sanctions by Moscow on individuals may have little effect upon them financially, the political ramifications can be quite harsh, especially if allied nations to Russia choose to jump on board and honor these restrictions.  And with Putin's government signing on board for sanctions that will now affect 200 people, including U.S. Senator John McCain, the ongoing proxy war is now getting ...

As the ECB prepares for Greek exit, Tsipras plans meeting with Putin

Despite the hoopla that came out of a fragile debt agreement between Greece and the Troika a few weeks ago, the Southern European country is no better off now than before they started re-making interest payments on their hundreds of billions of euros in debt obligations.  And as the political and economic situation increasingly moves towards insolvency, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is planning a meet ...

Russia seeks to put on trail retired U.S. General who called for the killing of Russians

Hyperbole, opinions, and commentary on television is one thing, but when a retired U.S. General publicly calls for the killing of Russian and pro-Russian peoples in the Ukraine and in the Russian mainland then these words can quickly become an international incident.  And just days after Major General Robert Scales told Fox News that U.S. foreign policy in the region should be focused on the killing of Russ ...

In desperate move, SWIFT adds Russia to its board as a voting member

Two days after China announced they were within months of implementing their own version of SWIFT to compete and perhaps overtake the U.S. dollar as the globally recognized reserve currency, the West does a U-Turn and has accepted Russia as a voting member of their financial messaging and interchange system.  This move on March 11 comes just months after the U.S. threatened the Eurasian oil giant with being ...

Russia responds to European Commissioner’s call for a new all-Euro military

The biggest problem with having a coalition of states is that many leaders within that union hold much different viewpoints than their counterparts.  For example, the Southern European nations within the European Union are more than happy to have the ECB begin buying up their debt obligations while much strong economies like Germany have a long memory of what devaluing a currency can do to destroy a nation. ...

Since the U.S. continues to sanction Cuba, door opens for Russia to move in

Despite the hoopla that President Obama tried to cash in on when he spoke about improving ties with Cuba late last year, little has changed regarding the overall relationship between Castro and Washington.  However, because of Congress's unwillingness to forgive events that took place more than 50 years ago, Russian President Vladimir Putin sees a new opportunity in the island nation just 90 miles off Ameri ...

The next major hit to the dollar occurs as Russia connects 91 institutions to SWIFT alternative

With most of the world having to use the Western based SWIFT system to perform global currency transactions, the U.S. has dominated the world's financial system for more than 70 years.  And because of that dominance,  America has used their control over SWIFT as a weapon to economically attack nations who opposed their national agendas. However, since the middle 2013 this is slowly begun to change.  And in ...

Obama administration mulls arming Ukraine as President continues ties to Kiev government

In a new report on Feb. 2, the Obama administration is mulling over sending lethal and deadly arms to the occupied government of Ukraine.  This move is another step in President Obama's plans for Washington to control Kiev and use Ukraine as a buffer zone against Russia in the ongoing proxy war with Vladimir Putin.

Elections have consequences: Greece can now veto any new sanctions on Russia

President Barack Obama in one of his narcissistic and arrogant tantrums once told the Republican congress, "Elections have consequences."  And in a more practical and real sense, that became true the moment that an anti-EU party successfully took over the leadership in Greece, and no longer allowed tools from the banking establishment to dictate their future. And as the power nations in Europe are quickly d ...
