Indications that the U.S. Is Planning a Nuclear Attack Against Russia

Every Empire, from Rome, to Napoleon, to Hitler who tried to fight on 2 fronts lost.

If these fools push too far as they always do, they will never get to first base because such horrors will be released as will change the world and humanity forever. If humanity even survives.

The idea that China and Russia will idly allow this to occur with these idiots is naive and dangerous. China does not warn without reason and historical evidence suggests such warnings should not be lightly dismissed. Russia and China are joint training, and in their place, logically, a warning strike makes a lot of sense. In just 10 minutes they would take out the satellites and fry all US communications electronics. No Sat navs, no phones, no radar. Worse, knowing payback is incoming.

A mad Usurper who doesn't know, freaking at invisible incoming. Screaming at the wife who can't get her Fat Butt and haunches through the escape Helicopter doors, holding onto 25 freebie Burger Packs to go.

Sad reality of the WH Elm Street Freddys.

On Wednesday, June 11th, CNN headlined “U.S. Sends B-2 Stealth Bombers to Europe,” and reported that “they arrived in Europe this week for training.” Wikipedia notes that B-2s were “originally designed primarily as a nuclear bomber,” and that “The B-2 is the only aircraft that can carry large air-to-surface standoff weapons in a stealth configuration.”

In other words, the primary advantage of the newer, “Stealth,” version of B-2, is its first-strike (or surprise-attack) nuclear capability. That’s the upgrade: the weapon’s ability to sneak upon the target-country and destroy it before it has a chance to fire off any of its own nuclear weapons in response to that “first-strike” attack. The advantage of Stealth is creating and stationing a nuclear arsenal for the purpose of winning a nuclear war, instead of for the goal of having continued peace via “Mutually Assured Destruction,” or MAD.

Some historical background is necessary here, so that a reader can understand why this is happening — the switch to an objective of actually winning a nuclear war (as opposed to deterring one). One cannot understand what’s happening now in Ukraine without knowing this bigger picture.

Interest rate rise a sign Britain is back to normal, former chancellor says

While the world's economies are struggling under severe recession problems, Britain stands alone in Europe. Smart enough to avoid the Euro and emerging from recession bringing hope to others.

Lord Lawson of Blaby, the former Conservative chancellor, says that a rate rise this year signalled by Bank of England Governor Mark Carney would be a sign that Britain has finally got over the recession

A pre-election rise in interest rates would be a clear sign that the UK is over the worst of the economic downturn and is “returning to normality”, a former Conservative chancellor has said.

Lord Lawson of Blaby said that a warning from Mark Carney, the Bank of England Governor, that rates could rise before next spring, is a sign that Britain is out of a “long period of recession”.

He called for a 0.25 per cent increase in rates this year and warned that Mr Carney has in the past been too cautious with regard to interest rate rises.

However, he said that ministers need to “start winding down” the Help to Buy mortgage guarantee scheme to prevent a damaging house price boom.

House prices are rising at more than 10 per cent a year in some parts of the country, and a growing number of economists is warning of a bubble that could leave some households with unsustainable debts and lead to financial instability.

Iraq is on the Verge of a Full-Scale War

A terrible legacy. What an appalling mess. Dinars anyone? Phony Tony has new printed ones to sell for the next round of Rope a dope.

On June 10 Iraq saw the only logical outcome of the American occupation, and the numerous US attempts to impose American-style democracy upon its people. If the Kurds had previously separated from the rest of Iraq, creating a quasi-state in the form of a Kurdish autonomous region that had many attributes of an independent state, now the Sunnis are clearly ready to call it quits as well.

During the eight years of American occupation succeeded by three years of a pro-Iranian Shiite government rule that accumulated all power in the hands of one faction, the Sunnis that had been the governing elite since the days of separation from the Ottoman Empire in 1918 and until the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003, were, quite unsurprisingly, violently suppressed. In December 2013, the Iraqi western province of Al Anbar, populated almost entirely by Sunnis, saw a rise of rebellion movements against the regime of Nouri al-Maliki. The rebellion, joined not by Islamists alone, but also by former Ba’athists fighters, took control of two cities – Ramadi and Fallujah. Simultaneously, the rate of terrorist attacks in Baghdad, Mosul, Kirkuk and other major cities has sharply increased. The security forces loyal to al-Maliki which have been using aircraft, tanks and heavy artillery for the last 7 months in a attempt to suppress the rebellion, while suffering great losses, have ultimately failed in regaining control over the revolting provinces.

To make the matters worse, the situation has been affected by the state of affairs in neighboring Syria, since the armed opposition groups that are fighting against the Assad regime invaded Iraqi territory, taking control over a number of areas adjacent to the Syrian border. Those forces were composed of members of Al-Qaeda and the extremists from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, who have been handsomely funded by Qatar and Saudi Arabia for a long period of time. The ranks of the latter terrorist organization are growing rapidly in those areas due to the fact that, in addition to the Syrians and Iraqis that form the core of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, there are numerous mercenaries from other Arab and Islamic countries, in addition to remnants of terrorists from Russia’s North Caucasus, and even the former members of the Afghan and Pakistan Taliban, joined by Muslims from the European Union.

No wonder the Chinese want to pay homage to our great Queen

Some day you may learn what really happened at the handing over of Hong Kong at the end of the New Territories lease. I suspect the fact that someone more than honored the spirit and intent of the original agreements did not go unnoticed. And now we have the City becoming an international FOREX portal for renminbi, which is why Li Keqiang is in London.

Wonder who bought Bank of America's share in China Construction Bank? No one should be particularly surprised then to see CCB's UK subsidiary becoming the first UK clearing bank. Anyone care to bet that Lloyds will be second?

Li Keqiang, China's Prime Minister, arrives in London next week on an official visit. Given the importance of Chinese-UK trade relations (we are talking $17.8 billion) this is a crucial event for British business – especially energy companies, banks, and even Manganese Bronze, who make London taxis. Their success in keeping the Chinese sweet depends on one person: the Queen.

All Li Keqiang wants to do while here is meet Her Majesty. Elizabeth II has become a pawn in a secret diplomatic game being played by the FO and the Chinese Government. That's one in the eye for the Republicans. While the rabid sans-culottes of Britain agitate against the Crown as an expensive anachronism, the most important nation of the future (and ironically one raised on Communist principles) reveres the monarchy.

Here is proof that, the world over, people love the royals. Not any royal, mind you: I don't see the Chinese queuing up to curtsey before the flashy Grimaldis of Monaco, or the cycling Margrethe II of Denmark. No, only the Windsors have that magical appeal that makes even the toughest dictator bend his knee.

US silence on ISIL offensive dubious

Due to Washington’s joke of a Foreign Policy Negligence, a new crisis now develops, destroying all efforts that preceded prior efforts.

What a mess they have made of our world. Time to GO!

This photo, taken on June 11, 2014, shows an explosion as militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) seize an Iraqi army checkpoint in the northern province of Salahuddin.

The so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) came under the spotlight six months ago following its offensives in Iraq and Syria.

The wishful thinking was that the United States would take action against this dangerous terrorist group and would even wage a war to annihilate them because of its self-declared war on terrorism plans launched since 9/11.

The US has spent more than USD 1,000 billion on war on terrorism since September 11, 2001 attacks in order to erase the terrorists off the region. But to the dismay of Washington, an al-Qaeda-style group has emerged – this time along borders of Iraq and Syria.

The emergence of such groups is a nose-thumbing reaction to the US and a declaration of war on a government which claims to be the world’s only superpower.

Russian companies ‘de-dollarize’ and switch to yuan, other Asian currencies

These are real power shifts that the West does not yet recognize, but they are happening today. And as they do, the dependency on the USD is lessened, reducing the velocity and need of dollars in circulation. 

Simply put, ugly is deflation in face of hyperinflation. The US will lose.
9 June 2014

Russia will start settling more contracts in Asian currencies, especially the yuan, in order to lessen its dependence on the dollar market, and because of Western-led sanctions that could freeze funds at any moment.

“Over the last few weeks there has been a significant interest in the market from large Russian corporations to start using various products in renminbi and other Asian currencies, and to set up accounts in Asian locations,” Pavel Teplukhin, head of Deutsche Bank in Russia, told the Financial Times, which was published in an article on Sunday.

Diversifying trade accounts from dollars to the Chinese yuan and other Asian currencies such as the Hong Kong dollar and Singapore dollar has been a part of Russia’s pivot towards Asian as tension with Europe and the US remain strained over Russia’s action in Ukraine.

Since Crimea voted to rejoin Russia, the US government has imposed cold-war era sanctions, which have hurt the Russian economy and have slowed lending and investment activity.

Researchers at UW lab create close copy of 'Spanish flu' pandemic virus

Total madness! Look at where HIV got them.

An international team of researchers led by a University of Wisconsin-Madison scientist created a life-threatening virus in a high-containment lab in Madison nearly identical to the 1918 "Spanish flu" pandemic that killed a staggering 50million people worldwide, according to an article published Wednesday in a major science journal.

The controversial research, intended to show that bird flu viruses currently circulating in nature have the same pandemic potential as the 1918 Spanish flu, is drawing sharp criticism from around the world as highly risky.

The new virus scientists created in the Madison lab through reverse genetics methods was more deadly in mice and ferrets than an ordinary, existing bird flu virus, but was not as deadly as the 1918 virus — one of recorded history's most devastating outbreaks of disease.

The research published in the journal Cell Host & Microbe shows "there are gene pools in nature that have the potential to cause a severe pandemic in the future," said UW-Madison's Yoshihiro Kawaoka, senior author of the report and an internationally recognized authority on avian flu.

Spanish Government Goes Digging For GDP, Asks Brothels: "How Many Services Do Your Hookers Provide?"

Desperate to increase its tax take, the Spanish Government sinks to a new low.

First Italy, then Britain, and now Spain has decided that the key to reducing its debt-to-GDP ratio is not fiscal responsibility, growth, inflation, or restructuring but simply changing the denominator to better reflect reality - in other words, as El Pais reports, Spain is putting an official number on its sex trade and therefore juicing GDP. Prostitution, which is in legal limbo in Spain, is expected, according to revised figures released by the INE on Thursday Spanish GDP increases by between 2.7% and 4.5% after illegal activities such as prostitution, drug trafficking and smuggling are included. The Spanish government is undertaking a sexual services survey to better understand the industry...

As El Pais reports,
Several months ago two researchers from Spain’s National Statistics Institute (INE) paid a visit to the headquarters of an association called Heteria - the organization that works to protect the rights of sex workers - looking for a way to estimate how much money prostitution contributes to the Spanish economy.

The government has been working to measure a part of the illegal economy, and incorporate it into the official calculation of Gross Domestic Product (GDP). This week it revealed its results: according to revised figures released by the INE on Thursday Spanish GDP increases by between 2.7% and 4.5% after illegal activities such as prostitution, drug trafficking and smuggling, together with other methodological changes, are included.
