U.S. power waning as it seeks Europe’s agreement to sanction Russia more

While the U.S. reels from the triple bombshells of this week that have left the Superpower nearly impotent to act, an astonishing occurrence is taking place in diplomatic circles as Washington no longer feels it has the authority to simply impose economic sanction on Russia, but must beg to Europe to stand with them in a move where they hope will allow them to restrict the use of the SWIFT system by Russia. ...

U.S. to respond with more sanctions against Russia one day after petro-dollar system broken

Since most people in America tend to be mesmerized by singular events on television without a true understanding of the complete picture, many will watch today's news out of Ukraine of a Russian incursion across their neighbors borders and think that the Obama administration's call for new economic sanctions are tied to this.  However, what the mainstream media failed to mention yesterday, and which is the ...

Putin adviser: Transition to new global economy will require war

The term revolution has multiple meanings dependent upon the perspective of the rebels seeking it, and the establishment trying to keep it from occurring.  But throughout the annals of history, revolution has never come easily, and almost inevitably is achieved through violent action, or in many cases, all-out war. For Russia, which understands the concept and history of revolution within their own peoples, ...

Iraq has become President Obama’s Vietnam as he prepares to send in more advisors

Although it was President George Bush and Vice-President Dick Cheney who saddled Barack Obama with the duo-sided conflicts of Iraq and Afghanistan, it will be the latter President who will get anointed by history to be the one who's failure in the Middle Eastern nation gets remembered the most. Unfortunately in war, the exit strategy known as the draw down doesn't really work in areas of the world outside o ...

Russian sanctions Part 2: Halt of food imports from any nation sanctioning the Bear

It has been a wild week for geo-politics as the Obama administration has been unable to counter the growing rejection of the empires ability to impose its will on the rest of the world.  First, reports have come out of the Ukrainian high command that Russia has mustered troops and tanks on their Eastern border in what appears to be final preparations for a major incursion against the Eurasian state.  Second ...

Wars and rumors of wars: Nearly 12% of entire world involved in conflicts

When compared to global conflicts such as World War I and World War II that involved nations from every continent except Antarctica, today's ongoing conflicts appear to be little more than political tantrums stemming from religious or economic disagreements.  Yet since the end of the Cold War, the world has not seen so many countries involved in hot conflicts going all at once, and the nature of these aggre ...

American military vs. American military in Iraq?

When President Bush ordered U.S. forces into Iraq in 2003, trends forecaster Gerald Celente predicted that no matter the outcome, the result would eventually lead to civil war.  Well, it took 11 years from that time for his prognostication to come to pass, but ironically, it is another civil war that is about to take place in the region, and it has nothing to do with the Sunnis, Shiites, or Kurds. It has to ...

Pope declares world is on edge of economic collapse and dependent upon war

While the office of the Pope is one that is supposed to represent the voice of Christ to the over 1.2 billion Catholics around the world, the man who sits in that office is also a head of state in the realm of world governments.  Thus a Pope's words can carry great weight even today, just as they did for 1200 years before the Great Reformation. So when the highly educated Jesuit that is Pope Francis speaks ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Oppose the war in Ukraine? New E.O. could allow Obama to seize your assets

In the Federal government, lawyers ensure that legislation, laws, or other forms of regulation are written in ways to be both vague and concise, and allow the state to enforce them as they see fit.  One such 'benign' form of law that was passed last week could essentially allow the Obama Administration to seize the assets of any American who disagrees with the government's policies over Ukraine and the ongo ...
