U.S. sanction Fail: Russian’s made billions off of Obama’s gambit

Ahhh chess.  It's a game where masters succeed and the amateurs fail.  And for centuries, those who have mastered the ability to think and plan several moves ahead have always been able to transfer those skills into real life situations and are then able to manipulate those who are limited to just reactionary responses. This has been the case between Russia and the United States over the past year, and in p ...

Russo-Sino relations become one as largest energy deal signed

During the cold war, there was one thing the United States could rely upon as it strove to be the sole defender against global Communism.  That ace in the hole was the fact that the two largest Communist powers could never fully achieve an alliance against the West, and would quite often dedicate energy and resources against one another more than against their true enemy which was the U.S.. However, when Ru ...

Russia holds meeting to plan for implementation of exports being done in Rubles not dollars

Late last month, a little known meeting took place with Russia's Finance Ministry to discuss the implementation of new export rules that will cut out the U.S. dollar, and increase the use of the Ruble in international settlements.  In addition, two nations, Iran and China, were said to have backed Russia's plan which will soon lead to an increase in global dissension over the reserve currency, and with glob ...

Newly separated state of Donetsk asks Putin for absorption into Russia

You know how you can tell this is not your Grandfather's Russian empire?  It is because former Soviet bloc states and populations are not fighting to abstain from being annexed by the Kremlin, but instead they are begging to join the Russian Federation.  In a quick turn of affairs in Eastern Ukraine on May 11, the newly referendumed state of Donetsk called for President Putin to absorb the sovereign state i ...

Russia counters U.S. rhetoric by claiming genocide in Ukraine

In a proxy war, propaganda is a key tool in swaying public and global support towards ones cause.  North Vietnam was a master of this, and by the end of the conflict with the U.S., America was completely disheartened and seen by the world as a lost aggressor. So as Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry play Monday morning QB from the confines of the White House, Russia, which actually has troops st ...

Ukrainian nationalists put bounty on head of Russian journalist

In a civil war, there is no such thing as civility, or human rights.  Even the U.S. invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan demanded certain 'rules of engagement' which protects civilians above and beyond the normal course of achieving an objective. But history shows that conflicts between different ethnic groups can degrade into a primal no holds barred battle of carnage and brutality, as the world saw two decad ...

Rumors circulating that new Eurasian Zone currency will be the gold Altyn

As empires rose and fell throughout the annals of time, one remaining constant seems to always prevail... that being an empire's currency. From ancient Greece, the Drachma is recognized today in books, films, and even by a modern civilization that pines for better days in the wake of economic collapse.  Then there was the famous Roman Denarius, which was segregated in value through the use of different meta ...

China providing an alternative to Europe for Russian natural gas

Contrary to most government propaganda, nearly all military incursions, as well as global wars, have been waged over the desire to control energy resources.  World War I saw the breakup of the Ottoman Empire, and the colonization of new Arab States to tap into their massive stockpiles of petroleum.  World War II was led by Axis power Japan, who needed to invade and control the Asia to access energy they cou ...

Eurasian Economic Union and trade zone scheduled to begin in May

The concept behind the European Union was to solidify the economic power of European nations under one umbrella in the wake of World War II, and the ever changing sphere of global super powers.  Starting in the late 1950's between companies in France and Germany, this union has morphed into a go-political monstrosity run by un-elected technocrats, and using a common currency that has stifled trade throughou ...

Putin threatens Europe with gas shutoff if it doesn’t pay Ukraine’s debt

The reason the world's reserve currency is known as the petro-dollar is because oil, not gold or GDP, rules the world.  In today's modern civilization, those that have oil and abundant energy, dictate to those who do not. Which is why the trump cards have always been in Russia's hand, and on April 11, Vladimir Putin chose to play a big one. Europe should provide aid to Ukraine to ensure uninterrupted natura ...

Russian central banks drops major hint as it changes its logo to golden ruble

With the covert overthrow of the Ukrainian government earlier this year, America appears to have gone past its own 'red line', and is now teetering at the point of no return for dollar hegemony.  And in threatening Russia at its own doorstep, the U.S. has triggered the Eurasian superpower to accelerate its plans with China to overthrow the dollar as the world's reserve currency, and usher in a new financial ...
