Putin speech to Russian diplomats: 'The time of U.S. world domination has ended'

Putin tells it as it is. The US is being corralled out of the entire world now.

As the waning days of US imperialism come and go and you see the last gasp efforts of a neocon agenda from the Middle East to the Ukraine to Afghanistan to the fines imposed on BNP and the reaction from Noyer of the French Central bank to Korea using the yuan as a settlement currency. With this comes a realization that life in west is about to change and these statements by Putin clearly set the Russian tone with the full backing of China. Have no doubt the two are in total accord in concert over their view of a multipolar world. 

Once the petrodollar loses a certain velocity, a new reality will unfold with more change than one might imagine and one consequence will be lower living standards in the west. The days of false wealth through the use of derivatives and their spawn are over. Wealth will be measured by actually building and selling things the world needs or creating technology that serves a purpose in the eyes of the world.

"According to Putin, the present crisis in Ukraine is a manifestation of the core Western policy of "deterring Russia" that continued despite the end of the Cold war. Putin announced Moscow would continue to defend the rights of Russian "compatriots" living abroad "using political, economic and self-defense humanitarian operations." He declared that the time of U.S. world domination has ended and Russia will be reintegrating the Eurasian landmass [former USSR], while promoting better relations with Europe, "which is our natural partner." The Russian foreign ministry was ordered to work on preparing "a joint space of economic and humanitarian cooperation from Lisbon to Vladivostok," based on absolute noninterference in internal political matters and excluding the U.S. Putin accused Washington of blackmailing Paris to stop the delivery of the French-built Mistral helicopter-carrying assault ships to the Russian Navy (kremlin.ru, July 1). The first Mistral is planned for delivery this year and it could be stationed in Sevastopol (Rossyskaya Gazeta, June 25)."

This week in Moscow President Vladimir Putin made a major foreign policy statement, while speaking to a worldwide gathering of Russian ambassadors and permanent diplomatic representatives. According to Putin, the West did not give Moscow a choice, but to move to annex Crimea last March to defend Russians and Russian-speakers "that consider themselves part of the wider Russian world" ("Ruskiy Mir"). Putin insisted that NATO planned to swiftly move its forces into Sevastopol and radically change the balance of power in the region, depriving Russia of everything it had been fighting for since the times of Tsar Peter the Great.

According to Putin, the present crisis in Ukraine is a manifestation of the core Western policy of "deterring Russia" that continued despite the end of the Cold war.

The first Mistral is planned for delivery this year and it could be stationed in Sevastopol (Rossyskaya Gazeta, June 25).

Putin's speech was controversial: while accusing the West of ignoring international law and interfering in others' affairs by promoting so called "democracy," Putin strongly asserted Russia's right to intervene in other nations internal affairs "to defend Russian compatriots abroad." The Kremlin rejects the West ideologically, politically and militarily, but Putin's speech did not spell out fully the practical part of the Russian foreign policy agenda (gazeta.ru, July1).

China general's ousting tightens Xi's grip on military: Experts

Chinese strategies are working. Unlike 110M Americans!

One should not have illusions about Xi's determination to eliminate and reduce corruption nor his level of control, it is unparalleled since Mao. The real difference today is that he has soft power that can be exerted globally.

Beijing: The Chinese Communist Party's dramatic expulsion of a former top general -- the most senior figure to fall in President Xi Jinping's anti-corruption campaign -- is an assertion of political control over the powerful and wealthy military, analysts say.

Xu Caihou, former vice chairman of China's Central Military Commission and until two years ago a member of the ruling party's elite 25-strong Politburo, was stripped of his party membership on Monday and his case was handed over to prosecutors.

The 71-year-old is the highest-ranking Chinese military officer to face trial in decades.

The authorities' move to pursue charges against him -- despite reports that he is dying of bladder cancer -- is intended to send the People's Liberation Army (PLA) a clear message, analysts said.

The PLA's influence in domestic affairs has waned since the days of Communist China's founding father Mao Zedong, but it remains a political force to be reckoned with and has at the same time built up a vast network of business interests.

The Emerging German-Russian Axis

They are just too thick and arrogant to get it.

Have no doubt the map is being redrawn by realities not hubris and America's ship of fools is only accelerating the geopolitical and economic shifts while China plays the fiddle.

The world will be vastly different within a couple of years.

And yes perhaps someday someone will ask how did we let this happen?

Submitted by Charles Gave via Gavekal Dragonomics,

This weekend has seen the European Union do a stitch-up deal so that arch-federalist Jean-Claude Juncker became Commission president. To be honest, who gets to play eurocrat in chief is of no great interest to me, but the manner of the appointment tells us lots about the changing nature of power in Europe. Governments from Stockholm to Rome reportedly opposed Juncker, but ultimately none would defy Berlin. Also this weekend, it is worth noting some ostensibly bland comments by Vladimir Putin at a German-Russian official function: “We value the accumulated potential of Russian-German relations and the high level of trade and economic cooperation. Germany, one of the European Union leaders, is our most important partner in enhancing peace, global and regional security.”

I would contend that we are seeing a decisive shift in the political character of Eurasia. History tells us that long wars have tended to be fought between maritime empires and continental empires. Think of Athens vs. Sparta, Carthage vs. Rome or Britain vs. Napoleonic France. The last big fight was between the US and the Soviet Union ended in favor of the maritime empire. As a result, since 1989 we have lived in an order ultimately run by the US military. But after some unpleasantness playing the role of global policeman, that maritime empire is in retreat.

The consequence of this move toward isolation is that a bunch of ‘continental empires’ are starting to challenge the monopoly of “legal” international violence that the US has exercised for the last 25 years. The most obvious challengers can be seen in the shape of Sunni Muslims across the Middle East, or in East Asia where a more confident and assertive China is stating its case for preeminence. Such struggles have the potential to become major regional problems, but what worries me more is the emerging continental alliance between Russia and Germany. Preventing such a partnership has for centuries been an idée fixe for French diplomacy, and for good reason. A combination of German industrial might and Russian raw materials and military strength would instantly create a colossus. The Poles, who have been perennial victims of engagements between Germany and Russia, are already visibly panicking, as they should be.

US-bound airlines to screen smartphones, laptops amid new Al-Qaeda terror threat

Thank you America. Because of worldwide US State Terrorism, we now have 3 hour check in delays with new snooping. You have F up the world , F up the economy, so why don't you all F off back to Homer Simpson Land and leave the world in peace?

One would think that a government might have the common sense not to fund people who then go and attack them.

Airlines that fly direct to the US will be forced to step up checks on mobile phones and shoes in light of threats of an Al-Qaeda bomb attack. US officials say terrorists have found a way to conceal incendiary devices inside phones to avoid detection.

Passengers on flights from Europe, the Middle East and Africa bound for the US will be subjected to extra security checks, US officials have told Reuters. The US government warned earlier this week of an Al-Qaeda effort to create an undetectable bomb that could be smuggled through airport security.

According to US intelligence sources, the undetectable devices are most likely to be hidden in smartphones, including Apple iPhones and Samsung Galaxy phones. The bombs could also be surgically implanted into an insurgent’s body or be embedded in clothes fibers.

Officials say that bomb makers from an Al-Qaeda affiliate group in Yemen are collaborating with the Syrian al-Nusra Front to develop a device that foils security. Airlines that do not step up their security measures could face bans on their flights entering the United States.

These two stories are huge

Things are so bad for the US we are delivering bad news now in double articles it comes in so fast.

From the second article, the answer by Noyer speaks volumes about what is really happening contrary to the noise coming from America.

One day someone will ask, how did we lose Europe?


"Q. Doesn't the role of the dollar as an international currency create systemic risk?

Noyer: Beyond [the BNP] case, increased legal risks from the application of U.S. rules to all dollar transactions around the world will encourage a diversification from the dollar. BNP Paribas was the occasion for many observers to remember that there has been a number of sanctions and that there would certainly be others in the future. A movement to diversify the currencies used in international trade is inevitable. Trade between Europe and China does not need to use the dollar and may be read and fully paid in euros or renminbi. Walking towards a multipolar world is the natural monetary policy, since there are several major economic and monetary powerful ensembles. China has decided to develop the renminbi as a settlement currency. The Bank of France was behind the popular ECB-PBOC swapand we have just concluded a memorandum on the creation of a system of offshore renminbi clearing in Paris. We have very strong cooperation with the PBOC in this field. But these changes take time. We must not forget that it took decades after the United States became the world's largest economy for the dollar to replace the British pound as the first international currency. But the phenomenon of U.S. rules expanding to all USD-denominated transactions around the world can have an accelerating effect.

"In other words, the head of the French central bank, and ECB member, Christian Noyer, just issued a direct threat to the world's reserve currency (for now), the US Dollar."


Largest Austrian Bank Crashes After "Revealing" 40% Surge In Bad Debt Provisions, Record Loss

Update: just as expected, the confidence-preservation brigade is quick on the scene:

  • HUNGARY LOAN-REFUND LAW VIOLATES RULE OF LAW: BANK ASSOCIATION
  • HUNGARY LOAN-REFUND LAW DAMAGES INVESTOR CONFIDENCE, BANKS SAY

Because clearly marking loans to fair value would crush investor confidence. And clearly investors are dumb enough not to realize that it is precisely by hiding what is beneath the surface, that they have zero confidence in the system.

* * *

Ever since 2012, when we first revealed that the biggest problem plaguing Europe's financial sector is the $2 trillion+in bad debt on the books of European banks (not our numbers, the IMF's), it became clear that the only wayEurope can avoid a complete financial meltdown coupled with currency disintegration, is if it can constantly keep rolling over said bad debt (obviously the only way to do that would be to create an epic debt bubble leading managers of other people's money to do idiotic things like buy Spanish debt at 2.75%). This is why not only the BOJ launched its mega QE in 2013, but why Draghi also kicked in with NIRP a month ago: the logic - do anything and everything to reflate the biggest credit bubble possible as otherwise European banks will have no choice but to face up to their trillions in bad loans.

The “Battle for Europe” is Raging. How America Undermines Franco-Russian Relations

Now the Billy No Mates in Washington need Europe to bully?

If one takes time to understand the European culture, one realizes that words uttered from the hip are long remembered when reviewing one's actions and no doubt these words are thought of:

Victoria Nuland in her infamous conversation with ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt in preparation for the coup d’etat in Kiev pronounced her immortal: “Fuck the EU!”

And F You Washington we all hate you slimeballs!

The bloody destabilization of Ukraine was a means to an end: Keep Europe under control. But it’s not working.

One can also be sure that other countries watch as well and ponder their stance. After all the G77 are aligned against the US. With each passing week we are seeing more and more countries either utter the need to remove their reliance on the USD or actually bypass the USD as Korea did, so one must ask what does it take to see the shifting sands of time. America is dying!


US Blackmailed France using the Banque Nationale de Paris as Hostage

Global Research
By Umberto Pascali
2 July 2014

On July 1st, during a meeting with all Russian ambassadors and permanent representatives, President Vladimir Putin revealed the details of a blatant blackmail against France. The US Administration used its unilateral (and de facto illegal) sanctions against Cuba, Iran and Sudan to punish France and in particular the Banque Nationale de Paris – Paribas. The Bank was blackmailed in to paying $8.97 billion for not submitting to the malicious diktat of the power-drunk but weakening hegemon, even though the sanctions are not a decision agreed to by France.

In a development that has a direct impact on national sovereignty, Senior BNP executive Dominique Remy resigned in mid-May after New York state banking regulator Benjamin Lawsky (read Wall Street) named him as one of the 12 officials who should step down due to their roles in the “scandal”.

Putin revealed publicly something even worse. The case against France’s BNP was set up by Washington in order to blackmail France and force the country to refuse the delivery to Russia of two French-produced Mistral-class helicopter carriers for $1.6billion.

France and Russia, however, did not back down on the Mistral deal: at this very moment 400 Russian sailors are receiving training on the first Mistral in a French port.

Horrific scenes from Kabul Taliban burned 400 tanks with fuel, the fire is not yet extinguished

The news is that the Taliban torched 400 tanker trucks in Kabul. Soon the only way to get the Bush CIA Cabal heroin out will be by air, assuming there is aviation fuel, or by camel.

So much for the money and lives wasted there.

And no, you will not read this in a western paper.



On Saturday morning it was difficult to ascertain the damage as firefighters were still working to extinguish the fire.

Jutarnji List

KABUL - The attack on Friday night destroyed nearly 400 tanks with fuel near Kabul, for which the Taliban claimed responsibility.

Trucks with fuel tanks on fire on Friday evening and were still burning on Saturday morning in the parking lot in Paghman district, west of Kabul.

On Saturday morning it was difficult to ascertain the damage as firefighters were still working to extinguish the fire.

For the head of the criminal police of Kabul Gul Aghu Hashimi "was not a suicide attack, the fire was caused by a magnetic bomb".

In a statement sent by e-mail the media, the Taliban spokesman through Zabihulaha Mujahid claimed responsibility for the attack.

International forces for help and safety could not immediately confirm whether the fuel was intended for NATO forces in Afghanistan.

MP Simon Danczuk has called for a public inquiry into child abuse amid concerns about the disappearance of a file on alleged paedophile activity at Westminster in the 1980s.

The Rochdale MP is leading demands for Prime Minister David Cameron to launch a high level inquiry into the scandal.

The Prime Minister has ordered a fresh review by the most senior official at the Home Office into what happened to the dossier handed to the then home secretary, Leon (now Lord) Brittan by the Conservative MP Geoffrey Dickens in 1983.

Mr Danczuk, who carried out an investigation into abuse by the late Liberal MP Cyril Smith and who raised the issue of what happened to the Dickens' file at a hearing of the Commons Home Affairs Committee, said there needed to be a full public inquiry.

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg this morning rejected calls for a Hillsborough-style inquiry into historic sex abuse allegations - despite growing concern over the disappearance of a dossier detailing explosive claims of sex abuse by paedophiles within Westminster.

Mr Clegg said the police should be in charge of getting to the bottom of what happened to vulnerable children in care homes, following claims that high profile individuals were part of a paedophile network targetting children.

The Lib Dem leader's remarks came after former Home Secretary Leon Brittan admitted receiving a file containing allegations of a child abuse network operating in Westminster. He said he was given the file by the late Conservative MP Geoffrey Dickens in 1983 and launched an investigation into the claims.
