Human Flood in the Land of “We’re always right”: Europe should expect up to 35 million refugees. Apparently, the Ayn Rand Institute, a neo conservative ultra Liberal pro-Israel think tank, is behind some of the efforts to bring refugees to Europe. One of their sites, fluchthelfer.in, posted information in German on how to help, transfer, finance and hide people. Initially, whois information listed the Ayn Rand Institute as the owner, after the scandal broke out the registrar information was changed. [source]
NB: Thanks, alan for mentioning this on September 11. There are also rumors that the Austrian Intelligence services released names of the US organizations that participate in organizing the human trafficking, but I couldn’t confirm that. Another aspect, the refugee camps in Turkey were well-funded via the UN. However, in December 2014 the UN stopped food programs for Syrian refugees. [source]
“It is highly unusual for a major aid provider like the World Food Program to follow through on its admonishments by immediately suspending a major assistance operation.” One of the prime reasons for the wave of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers is the sharp fall in international funding from United Nations countries.

On December 1, 2014 WFP Forced To Suspend Syrian Refugee Food Assistance, Warns Of Terrible Impact As Winter Nears [source]
Today, the EU announced that it will give the EU 1 billion euro for an UN refugee agency, World Food Program that was announced by every Western Mass media outlet. The previous budget was EU 4.5 billion. This information is absent on the EU parliament website. Instead, they announced the beginning of the EU military operations in the Mediterranean [source]
During a meeting of the security and defense subcommittee on 22 September, MEP from Austria, Eugen Freund expressed skepticism that the “root cause” of the migration was people smuggling, as the military operation identifies it. The head of the operation Lieutenant General Wosolsobe (European External Action Service, EEAS) said that that “a UN mandate would be required for his forces to intervene within Libyan territorial waters.” As soon as he gets this mandate, he will start the EU war in Africa. Here, he is making noise about deployment of military and civilian forces to the Horn of Africa, Mali, Somalia, and the Sahel region. Expect Africa to go up in flames next. [source]
Food for thought
Expert Seminar on the EU Global Strategy for Foreign and Security Policy [source]
• Europe’s “real” neighborhood, where its vital interests are at stake, stretches out into the Sahel, the Horn of Africa and the Gulf.
• Europeans have to defend their own territory against “external aggression”
• The need to deploy heavy forces on Europe’s eastern borders, in the context of conventional deterrence, while engaging in various operations in the broad southern neighborhood, and preparing for likely additional deployments
• How can the integration of the CSDP in the broader range of EU instruments be deepened and civilian-military synergies further exploited in Africa?
Essentially, the EU is preparing to start military actions in the North Africa, while defending itself from the imaginary external aggression, while deploying heavy forces to Russia’s boarder, while engaging in the operations in Syria, while preparing for more deployments, and to keep on they are subjugating the EU civilian resources and services to their urgent military needs.
Just for a day it looked like the Europeans have realized that their wars are the root of all evil. However, they quickly decided that a secret to success is to keep attacking their “real” neighbors. If you think that you have had enough refugees from the Middle East, wait until you get twice as much from Africa.

• The crisis in Ukraine that followed was Russia’s punishment (as some put it) over what Russia had done in Syria
• De-Industrialization of Germany.
Step 1: Destroy trade between Russia and Germany;
Step 2: make Germany to support the openly Neo-Nazi dictatorship in Kiev;
Step 3: Flood Germany with refugees;
Step 4: Dismantle its most iconic brands;
Step 5: Put entire German auto industry at risk;
Step 6: Put Germany on the list of first strikes for Russia by bringing into Germany nuclear weapon;
Step 7: Put entire German economy at risk;
Step 8: Cut the Russian gas and the Chinese financing (see article above) and the industrial collapse will follow;
Step 8: With all those emigrants being out of work and Germans being out of work due to industrial collapse, there will be social unrests that Germany has never seen before.

Last summer, I predicted that the de-industrialization of Germany by the U.S. is going to be so vicious, as nothing we have seen before. This attack on the German car maker is essentially an attack on the German character. Americans excel in character assassination techniques. Cheating on a test is such an un-German kind of trespassing. I might have a romantic view of the German national character, but Germans never cut corners when it comes to the quality of their products. After the Great Patriotic War, many German POWs remained in the Soviet Union for some time and worked rebuilding what they had destroyed. As the stories go, they were so meticulous and excellent in their work, that the Russians were asking them why would they put so much effort in something that was not even theirs. The Germans’ answer was, because they were Germans.
In Brief: John Helner reveals a conspiracy of the governments, members of NATO, to implicate Russia in a war crime committed by the Ukrainian Porosheno’s junta. The Dutch and Australian records make the Buk story impossible as cause of death. the Dutch government wanted to warn the Dutch against revealing what the Australians had already reported – that there was no evidence of more than 7,800 pieces of shrapnel in a Buk warhead. Most evidence point that it was a bomb onboard calculated to go on the day of the pre-arranged conversation between presidents Putin and Obama about Ukraine. If the evidence Putin gave Obama that morning were to be published and then believed, the responsibility for what had happened would be clear around the world – the Ukrainian Government had committed a war crime.

Ukraine’s Blockade of Crimea
1. Ukrainian farmers and business owners suffer Video Eng subtitles
“As the impromptu “blockade” of Crimea has started, it had as a goal to limit ALL movement of transport carrying goods from Ukraine to liberated Crimea. The genius behind this is some Tatar wahhabist, supported by the Right Sector thugs. Interestingly as with the Russian counter-sanctions, which barred trade from Europe and some other countries, and has seen a colossal rise in domestic production, the case is the same here. Except here it was purely a concept invented by Ukraine, and in fact does not even come from the ukrop govt but from a rogue “state within a state”.
As a result, all of the farmers and whoever else who wanted to sell their goods to Russia ended up stranded on the border, having to dump their goods at below break-even prices as to save at least some of their investment. In the meanwhile, Russian manufacturers and farmers rejoice as this just adds to their already booming domestic demand.
So here is a short interview with some of the merchants stuck at the border.”

Inquiring minds what to know:
How come the satellite footage in Syria gives great pictures of Russian planes and tanks, while it is not possible to provide a single good picture of the hundreds of Russian tanks in Ukraine?
Interesting, they do have great quality satellite photos of equipment that is stationed on Russian territory or in disputed Crimea. However, once it comes to Donbas, those pictures lose a huge share of their quality, precision and detail. They become blurry to say the least and the only “considerably credible” way, that authors use to make them depict “Russian or Russian-manned hardware” is association with dubious photos from VK and “written testimonies”.
Suffice to say, MH-17 is supplied with even more crude material.

China Economic/financial SITREP by Serbian Girl
Is China preparing for a major financial event?
China has recently made some unprecedented “blink-and-you’ll-miss them”-moves, which indicate that a financial tectonic shift is underway. Here is a slow-motion break down of developments so far.
The timeline starts in August 2015:
IMF refused China’s request to include the Yuan/RMB in their currency basket. They justified their refusal by explaining that the Yuan was a tightly controlled currency, and even though it was used in bilateral trade transactions it was rarely being used in international debt transaction [source]
Following the IMF decision, China promptly replied that they wished for their currency to be “more reflective of market conditions” and they proceeded to de-peg the Yuan from the dollar. [source]
Predictably, mainstream media went ballistic, how dare China manipulate its currency to gain a trade advantage? It’s unfair competition, a provocation. [source]
Even Donald Trump, presidential candidate, weighed in saying China was “sucking money out of the by unfairly devaluing their currency” [source]
Objective analysis puts the Chinese action into perspective: the removal of the peg created a devaluation that was of only 2-3% compared to the dollar. The Yuan is still strong compared to many emerging market other currencies. The trade advantage argument doesn’t hold water. So why the fuss and angry reaction from the Anglo-American mainstream media?
Why was this currency peg so important?
Possible answer: The Currency peg allowed the US to maintain the value of the dollar in spite of persistent trade deficits. [source]
When the US launched their QE programs, the dollar should have significantly devalued, but this did not happen. This is because the Chinese were willing to buy the dollar to maintain their currency peg.
With the peg gone, that game seems to be finished. [source] [source]
As a reminder, here is an overview of actions that China has undertaken to create parallel structures and bypass US dominated financial institutions
1. Creation of an Asian infrastructure bank [source]
2. Creation of China International Payment Systems CIPS to replace SWIFT [source]
3. Creation of RMB Clearing Banks and RMB Swap facilities. [source]
And now recently we have:
4. De- peg of the Yuan
5. Selling of treasuries
Regarding point number 5, the sale of US treasury bonds is another unprecedented move. China holds USD 1.6 Trillion in US treasury bonds, and could plunge the US in a severe crisis by selling all of them on the open market. Of course, this option would cause China a lot of damage as well. Hence the smugness of some US officials “it’s our currency, but it’s your problem”. [source]
But to everyone’s surprise, China did go ahead with the sale of approx. USD 100 Billion US treasury bonds. [source]
Although this sell-off of US treasuries did not affect their price or yield curve, a taboo was broken: China went overnight from being a massive buyer to being a massive seller of US treasury bonds. [source]
By only observing financial market indicators, we would have barely registered the effects of these recent events. China has managed to move tectonic plates without creating a financial tsunami. Is a big event in the financial markets around the corner?
These two links attach to excellent articles about how Ayn Rand’s philosophy is being force fed to economics students and university economics departments within and without the Outlaw Empire, http://wallstreetonparade.com/ayn-rand-the-tea-partys-miscast-matriarch/ and http://wallstreetonparade.com/resurrecting-ayn-rand-hedge-fund-money-teams-up-with-koch-bbt/
Seeing her videos on Youtube prevented me from reading her books, just out of curiosity. She is one nasty piece of work and a perfect icon for the fascists currently in control of the U.S. Government.
Outlaw, the essence of Randism is a visceral hatred of humanity. The perfect ideology for the USA and Israel.
One important point about Chinese holdings of US currency and T-bills: People tend to feel that as long as China holds a bunch, they’re vulnerable to drops in the US dollar. But we forget that it’s relative. If the US dollar drops, it drops against other currencies, which is to say those other currencies rise. As long as Chinese holdings of US dollars represent less than half their holdings of foreign currencies, they’ll break even on any drop in the dollar, or even gain.
Yep, China can short the dollar while it divests itself of the T-bills and make money in the end. At another venue I commented that Yukos shareholders would be unlikely to get one kopek, to which a reply asked for the value of a kopek: the metal value of one kopek is about $0.011, while the metal value of a penny is $0.004. And furthermore, the metal value of the Presidential Dollar coin is just under 4cents–$0.04. Talk about debasing your coinage. So, Russian money has a higher value that that of the Outlaw Empire!! Amazing!!
I object to referring to the Pope as “the beast and false prophet?” How can such an over-simplified ad hominem fulfill the aims of this site? I followed closely the whole first day of the Pope’s visit to the US until I grew tired of the predictable routines. I am aware of the papacy’s campaign against the Orthodox and disapprove of it. Is there no chance of a change? Pope Francis appears sincere in his desire to help make things better even though he is enmeshed in a deluded religious institution IMO. But then all patriarchal religions are deluded IMO. Religion itself is mostly a form of social control IMO. Per a recent thread, Russia is making a civilizational (civilized?) choice that is tolerant and eschews violence except in self defense. The root meaning of religion is simply to tie back into source. I espouse a religion of love based on our primal aboriginal state in nature which I present at thelovegovernment.com. It involves rooting out violence in all its forms except for true self-defense. Thinking and language is the most subtle form of violence which is why I am hopefully gently commenting on the attack on the Pope, cleverly softened by the question mark. My work is radically counter-cultural to the civilizations we have developed. I propose that meat-eating, pet-keeping, marriage coupling and interest taking are all insidious forms of violence. Such stances isolate me from all people and groups that I am aware of. I feel like the Saker who in his thanks to the snail-mailers of whom I am one felt like an alien dropped onto this planet with very little genuine contact except for the letters and assistance of the community, (sorry if my memory does not serve me well). I can’t possibly explain why I feel like I do or say the things I say in this short space and time so it is bound to be misunderstood and is inviting ad hominems toward myself. I do my best at thelovegovernment.com but it’s an entirely different mindset and language than the one we are immersed in today. I once was a Catholic priest. Over my 75 years I’ve had to extricate myself from that form of violence starting in my early childhood, and many other kinds of cultural violence. Every day I struggle against violence in my dreams and daily life. Last night I finished reading all the comments at the Civilizational Choice thread. I watched the links suggested by the very last commenter at that time on religions plus Richard Dawkins’ The God Delusion. I don’t throw out religion entirely like the baby with the bathwater. Religion has its uses and abuses like everything else. I like this site because of its high quality dialogue (which is Pope Francis’ forte for which he loses much support among his own tribe; three Catholic supreme court justices boycotted his address to the Congress). I’m a babe in the woods when it comes to the level of discourse here. I believe in God but in one that has been made up by man in his own image. That kind of knowledge epistomology is true across the board for all our thinking IMO. I choose to think in terms of love in the context of rational religion. We are persons are we not? In our original state we are also lovers which our very bodies witness to. It is reasonable for me that we are not the only ones in this seemingly infinite universe. I prefer to call our brothers and sisters across all time and space lovers, for convenience abstracted into the term, the lover, somewhat analogous to the word God as an abstraction of patriarchal men (and now women too) who act as gods. Even the bible says: “let us make man in our image,” the “our” being wanna-be gods, namely patriarchal men and women. The result is war, disease, famine and death, etc. If we want a different result we have to do something different. Talking and papal celebrity ceremonies are not going to do it. It has to start from the bottom up, one individual at a time. Per the Saker it’s a lonely road, a submarine in the desert and a constant battle with the three D’s. Sorry for the rambling and the preachiness. The failsafe is that no one has to read this. I’m mostly rambling in my own mind and preaching to myself. And the moderators can always hit the delete button if I step over a line only they can see.
My dear Dennis,
Thank you for your kind response.
Forgive me for my ignorance, but isn’t it that the beast is a master of delusion, leading to the worship of himself? (Revelation 13:4).153
In some places in Revelations (16:13; 19:20; 20:10) the beast “out of the land” is also called the “false prophet” because it is acting like the PR firm for the most powerful beast.
Isn’t what we try to accomplish here is to de-construct the political delusions and illusions that are being presented and acted upon as “reality.” And the presenters of these illusions as being “false prophets.”
The Pope of Rome is not a person, it is an institution. It’s a head of a state with over 1 billion inhabitants, with rumored 50,000 tons of gold stored in his basement and the penchant to arm armies of young and healthy men and to “bless” them to go to foreign lands to pillage and kill in the name of “God.” In this juncture, the Pope of Rome is no different from Merkel, or Victoria Nuland, only their “god” is called “national security.”
If you take a long hard look at the map of political thought, you will find everyone, from vegans and animal rights activities, to Ultra-Orthodox Jews, Ukrainian nationalists, 9/11 truthers, Washington neo conservatives, Wahabbies, and Vatican cardinals, every one of them and everyone in between believing that God is on their side.
Guess what? They are all wrong.
God has no dog in our fights. No matter what we assume, God doesn’t lead troops and tank battalions into battle. Angels don’t give wings to missiles.
God offers us a chance to become better people. Internally better. That’s all it is to it. Religion is a hospital for sinners. It’s not a bank, a prison, a military barrack, or an execution chamber. The last time I was in a hospital, it was great. Like a vacation of sorts. And the last time I died, it wasn’t bad either. They brought me back, and now I am working on becoming a better person.
As for referring to Washington as “the Beast.” and the Pope as a “false prophet.” The majority of people see Washington and the Vatican cozying up to each other as a sign that the noose that the 1% holds around our throats is going to be tightening.
I fully agree with what Scott wrote, and I will add this: Russians and Orthodox Christians have the right to call the Pope and his Papacy whatever we chose to call it. Last time I checked there is no obligation of any kind to “be nice” to any part of the imperial system of oppression of which the Pope is, of course, a central part. The rule #2 of moderation on this blog says “All comment have to be impeccably courteous to me, the blog’s author, moderators, any guest author and all the other commentators. Absolutely no ad hominems or personal attacks. Comments insulting the 1% plutocracy ruling the AngloZionist Empire are allowed and encouraged.” That very much includes the Pope and all his predecessors. I personally have ZERO respect for the Papacy as an institution and for any Pope whom I see as eternal enemy of the Church (the real one, of course, not the one run from the Vatican) and of the Russian people.
You want respect and praise for the Pope? Turn to the corporate media and you will find plenty of it.
I agree … There is Agenda 21, on the Pope ‘list of most important propaganda’ that will have us all living in a homogenous soup pot.
The Pope criticizes with his mouth big business and big war, but the money of the Vatican…and the Jesuits…is in big business and big war. Karen Hudes, a whistleblower from the World Bank says the Jesuits own the Bank of America…that’s just one of their investments….
The Pope is a Jesuit.
You might want to learn more about the pope’s history before leaping to his defense:
Also, the pope is pushing global government – the Western elite agenda. How “good” could he really be? Certainly there is evidence that much of what is happening was outlined in biblical prophecy long ago. It seems apt to me to use “the beast and false prophet”? in referring to him.
from Prof Michel Chossudovsky,
Wearing the white….does it change the man??
“Pope Francis appears sincere in his desire to help make things better even though he is enmeshed in a deluded religious institution IMO”
At the latest RT episode of Redacted Tonight, I think they’ve nailed the Pope: in all things that actually matters, his position is unchanged. It’s on everything else where there might be some room to wiggle where he treads, like, I donno… disarmament, anti-war rhetoric, denouncing Capitalism (while at the same time never naming names), I believe he even spoke about Climate Change (faux-Eco nonsense that’s pretty mainstream anyways)…
So from where I’m at, he’s nothing but a Catholic PR damage-control after all those priests sexually abusing little kids, and that awful, almost demon-like Pope they had before, what’s his name? Benedict?
^You could name Dracula as the new Pope and he would scare children less than that evil little creature.
This is what it did it for me: Francis visited the Philippines some months ago.
This is a country under the iron grip of a Catholic elite, as a result, is one of the most (if not the most) overpopulated and overcrowded countries on Earth. All thanks to the good ol’ Catholic Church and their meddling on government policies; no birth control, no abortions, no family planning clinics, be fruitful and multiply says the bible, blah, blah blah.
(and there are plenty of other links if you google them)
Thanks to this “policy”; families have between 8 to 10 [or more] children each, poverty is off the charts. So, these loving “Christian” parents send their children ‘to work’ the streets to support the rest of the brood.
“Work the streets” is euphemism for child prostitution and if this country is not number one on that, it must be a close second (but I doubt it).
A young filipino girl met Francis on his visit to the country and ask him “Why does God allow children to become prostitutes?”
The Pope allegedly broke in tears, but did he say: for the love of god stop breeding!!!! (?)
NOoooo. He said something vague about learning how to cry, and then went on to say something equally vague about women seeing things with special eyes…
Last but not least:
‘Smoking gun’ memo proves Pope Francis collaborated with junta
“Allegations that Jorge Bergoglio, now Pope Francis I, collaborated with Argentina’s brutal military dictatorship have been circulating for decades [..]”
“On Sunday [back in 2013], an Argentinian newspaper published a government memo that seems to definitively prove that Bergoglio did indeed provide information to the murderous dictatorship, informing authorities about allegations against two Jesuit priests who were kidnapped, tortured and imprisoned for five months for allegedly contacting anti-regime leftist guerrillas. Furthermore, Gregoglio is alleged to have sold the priests out even while he personally promised them his protection [..]”
That’s all I have to say, to your nonsense bro.
@ Anon [Sep 28, 2015 · 11:14 am UTC]
“That’s all I have to say, to your nonsense bro.”
(Interesting as those links maybe, I have not the faintest, what the relation is between them and the pope?!)
Plus; I don’t know how well documented facts can be classed as “nonsense.”
You might want to dispute the credibility of the “memo” quoted on my post, but “Francis” was indeed part of the clergy when the Junta was in power, and in those days you didn’t live very long if you didn’t support the Junta and/or collaborated with them when asked to.
Indeed, I read several articles on global research that corroborate what you wrote. it is even worse, all in all, with the pope pushing global government and Agenda 21, as Ann pointed out, which is essentially a plan to bring about the extinction of most of humanity and to enslave the remainder. I see nothing to praise in this man, however deluded he might be. I suspect he is not unaware of the deceptive role he is playing in selling the so-called NWO to the unquestioning and hopeful masses. I that during the pope’s visit the top search on google was this question: Is Pope Francis the anti-Christ?
“[..] I suspect he is not unaware of the deceptive role he is playing in selling the so-called NWO to the unquestioning and hopeful masses [..] during the pope’s visit the top search on google was this question: Is Pope Francis the anti-Christ?”
LoL! People get spooked by the darnest of things, don’t they? Some are still looking for signs for this ‘upcoming’ and rather ominous “Black Pope,”
Nothing but superstitions…
But yes, the guy is – just as you suspect: a tool, a massive TOOL, if you catch my drift…
…and he’s fully aware of it, just like Obama knows he’s a humongous tool and ‘porko-phile’ Cameron is another ‘tool’ too, and so are the rest of them…
Well Dennis, you just ‘ramble’ away as much as you like.
I for one appreciate your posts. At least you struggle to make sense. Often you do, if only partially.
Plenty are reading you.
Which means you are being heard.
So you are not alone, there are many submarines in the desert.

A few bits and pieces – inspired by Scott and Serbian Girl:
The HUGE VW (Volkswagen scandal) has broken just in time for the Zionist American Oligarchs to break the German economy and spirit of the German people (who host the strongest economy in Europe), for their attempt to steer an independent political course (from that of the Zionist American imperialists).
It appears the Zionist American Oligarchs allowed the corrupt VW corporate owners to fester along, until they could make political use of their moral – financial weakness to break the German economy – and enforce their political will.
It has long been understood (by the non-musical Lenin, as well as many others), that the unity of the German and Russian people will provide the key for the liberation of the Eurasian nations. Therefore the Zionist American & Anglo Oligarchs wish to block that unity at every turn.
On another matter: The extreme danger to Russia of Zionist-NATO-NAZI-USA military bases on Estonian, Latvian, and Lithuanian soil, cannot be overstated, and must not be allowed to take place, AT ANY COST!
The first whisper, the first hint, the first rumor, the first tickle, of such an eventuality should have resulted in a trio of defensive liberation of these nations (each hosting approximately 50% Russian nationality).
Some 20,000 Russian Marines-each, should prove adequate for the task. All foreign (American Zionist), Trash would be rounded up, disarmed, and, in return for imperialist held prisoners, exchanged.
To Vladimir Putin at the United States’ Nations, get the F— on the fastest jet plane you have – back to Moscow, dig up Zhukov, or a living facsimile General, do not pass Go! Do not collect $200! and, Get’R Done! It’s not your fault. You didn’t want to do it! You were given no options. These small nations are right on your borders, only a short hike to St Petersburg. Take a deep breath! You’ll feel better in the morning.
To those readers taking their digitalis, Be soothed; understand that this is the best way to avoid global conflagration.
For the Democratic Republics!
That monarch of great renown, the late Henry VIII, perfected the tactic of turning a blind eye to his minions’ corruption, until they disappointed him in their performance, and needed to be removed. This tactic almost failed with the non-venal Thomas More, but he was convicted of treason, and executed, on the perjured testimony of another lifelong Roman Catholic, who remained loyal to Rome, never adhered to the Church that Henry founded, and who died a natural death in his dotage, during the first Elizabeth’s reign, as a peer of the realm, and one of the wealthiest men in England, the first of a long line of Richie Riches. Sometimes, those of little scruple prosper very well, if they are careful in service to the powers that be.
speculative article extract here….?
Having been brainwashed with the concept of the Russian threat, the Europeans do not realize how the US is militarizing their countries. Washington has been building NATO command points and increasing its contingent throughout Europe. By the middle of the current century, European capitals may become Muslim-dominated cities.
Social explosions may lead to the creation of, for example, “the Party of Islamic Justice” that will win parliamentary elections in the United States of Europe thus giving birth to a new, 1-billion-strong country, with 600 million originating from Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
This Sunni state will leave traces of “traditional beliefs” in the face of Christians somewhere in the north. The army of this mega state will be based on American principles. The army will consist of the people, who will be ready to wage war against anyone. They will not have the European genetic memory of the two world wars. The model for the establishment of such a state has already been used in the creation of the Taliban and the Islamic State. There is even a small range ground in the center of Europe – Kosovo.
After 2030, financial oligarchy will initiate the collapse of China, start a conflict with Japan and launch the operation to conquer Russia. A Maidan-like revolution in Russia will be possible, as Russia’s current education system will prepare a new generation of slaves that would be addicted to gadgets. If you take away the Internet from such people (the Internet is controlled by the USA), the crowd will crush the culprit. The war against Russia will reduce the global population and will give the Americans an opportunity to colonize Russia. The European part of the country will be annexed to the United States of Europe, while Russia’s Asian part will become another state of the USA.
After the war, the world will be adjusted to America’s standards. Under the slogan of developing healthcare and anti-terrorist struggle, chips will be implanted under the skin of every human being. World’s elites will start cloning themselves, while common people will work for the evolution of the human body.

A correction should be made to Germany’s deindustrialization step 8. The video showing violence was shot in Bern, Switzerland. It shows a clash between Turkish and Kurdish immigrants on the day of protests of both parties.
If these people want to fight each other, wrap them up and send them home altogether. There is enough place in Turkey for war against each other.
Don’t put too much on what happened in those Turkish refugee camps. Only about 10% of the Syrian refugees in Turkey are housed in those camps. What really has changed is that prior the Turkish government actively prevented the exodus of refugees to Greece and now it is at least neutral and possibly actively involved.
The NY Times today had an article in which it gives the credits for revealing the Volkswagen scandal not to West Viginia but to California
Russia moves to create its own diamond exchange in Vladivostok
Alrosa to announce timetable within two weeks, with exchange likely open by 2016.
Ambitions to open the new Russian exchange by the end of 2016 are ‘absolutely real’, said deputy premier Yury Trutnev. The aim is to ‘try to link the marketplaces of the Asia-Pacific countries with the Russian Far East, because it is stupid to sell our diamonds to Japan or China via Antwerp’.
The West Virginia University is a cover of sort for the U.S. military Intelligence. Besides taking down the European industries, this University is very busy with organizing vibrant anti-Russian propaganda. I have to chuckle to see that the same US DoS and DoD apparatchiks work to destabilize Russia, and now destabilizing Germany.
That makes the take by Jim Stone all that much more plausible, days ago as it is.
Far better & closer to the mark than anything in print in the NYSlimes propaganda rag, anyway.
Two big reasons why Volkswagen got busted:
1. They produced the world’s most fuel efficient cars, and when the XL1 hit production, represented a huge threat to the climate change scam. Think about it – if all of a sudden fuel economy increased even 5x, (rather than the 10X the XL1 did) it would destroy the entire notion of us destroying the planet by driving.
Consider this: The biggest threat the climate hoaxers claim is CO2. Volkswagen cut that in half with the TDI, in part by breaking the emission system rules that would make it impossible to do if followed. Volkswagen proved the emission standards and systems are a scam that is feeding the climate change hoax. How would a powerful elite climate hoaxer respond to being exposed?
I wonder ,(just as a thought) if Volkswagen has ever thought of moving their corporation to Russia.It seems they plan on doing a lot of business there.And it might keep them out of the hands of the US courts.Which seem to busy themselves far more with “overseeing” foreign companies than US ones lately.
@ Scott and Serbian Girl,
Sometimes a thousand words will do, in other cases a simple picture. I have neither of these, but my thankfulness knows of no boundaries.
Thank you for this brilliant sitrep. As usual, I learned a great deal.
Many thanks for this excellent report. Unable to help financially or time wise but I am here to cheer you on.
Scott & Serbian Girl,
Thanks so much for the sitrep; as always I’ve learned a lot. I especially enjoyed the zerohedge article which says that the US economy is being taken down on purpose. I have been saying this for the past 5 years & this is the first time I’ve heard of anyone else agreeing. I also concur that economic collapse (or some other emergency) will usher in the global currency– and that this will be catastrophic to national sovereignty & therefore to individual freedom. The only escape that I can see is to leave the IMF system w dollar as reserve system, to nationalize central banks, to leave WTO & the other huge “free trade” treaties. It is not safe to have all economies so tightly wound together. Countries need to exercise individual monetary & trade policies.
—I have a question, or perhaps I am actually puncturing an urban myth:
At the foot of the sitrep you say,
“Although this sell-off of US treasuries did not affect their price or yield curve, a taboo was broken: China went overnight from being a massive buyer to being a massive seller of US treasury bonds. [source]
By only observing financial market indicators, we would have barely registered the effects of these recent events. China has managed to move tectonic plates without creating a financial tsunami. Is a big event in the financial markets around the corner?”
Everyone seems to believe that China has the ability to collapse the dollar by dumping all her treasuries. But is that true? Because look at this:
http://www.brookings.edu/blogs/up-front/posts/2011/09/07-china-currency-kroeber “China holds just 8% of outstanding US Treasury debt; American individuals and institutions hold 69%. China holds just 1% of all US financial assets (including corporate bonds and equities); US investors hold 87%. Chinese commercial banks lend almost nothing to American firms and consumers – the large majority of that finance comes from American banks. America’s banker is America, not China.”
Maybe 8% is enough, but I personally was surprised that it isn’t more.
According to Chinese news, china was anticipating having the yuan accepted by the IMF as a reserve currency to be used in world trade.
I could not see the US allowing the IMF to include the yuan. The IMF rejected the yuan a few days ago apparently, so if China really did think the IMF would allow the yuan to compete with the dollar as a world reserve currency, then those illusions are now gone.
We will now have to see what China’s plan B is to have its currency used for word trade.
A currency is commodity with its market value just like any other commodity. If there is too much supply in the market, the value plunges. If there is too much demand in the market, the value rises, just like like any commodity.
If a currency is pegged to USDollar, then that currency doesn’t become a commodity, and might as well use the USD instead.
Thanks for bringing this up.
Citibank did a few simulations on the effect of the sale of USTreasuries, and they showed that if foreign holders reduce their UST holdings by only 10% this translates into yield rise by a “mammoth 108 bp”. i.e. more than 1%.
Right now the US can only handle interest rates between 0- 0.25%.
So yes, even though Chinese hold “only 8%” of the total debt US debt, they can still significantly affect the UST yield and directly increase the US government’s borrowing costs.
Here are some links with a more detailed discussion:
Citibank simulation discussion: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-08-27/its-official-china-confirms-it-has-begun-liquidating-treasuries-warns-washington
Thank you Serbian Girl, for responding. I have been wondering about this for a couple of months and your comment and links will give me a chance to increase my understanding.
Interesting sitrep. Thanks
After reading the article at http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-09-23/worst-part-central-bankers-know-exactly-what-they-are-doing, and some follow-up articles, and “assuming” what those articles say could be true,—then we cannot but think that these presumed “superenergized evil ones 1% of the 1%” must be like a religious cult. They serve entities and/or serve purposes to simply generate the maximal amounts of rage energies and fear energies among humans on this planet, and this is their true objective, this “energy production”, and not any sort of capitalistic greed or racist-nationalistic fanaticism or even thirst for “power”. As for the nature of this likely religious cult,—we are reminded of the dominant Aztec religion in the years just before the Spaniards arrived. This religious cult had two main features: 1) perpetual warfare, and 2) human sacrifice, including ongoing ritual sacrifice. And there was perhaps a third significant feature, which was a practice of ritual cannibalism [think of the “zombie” theme promoted nowadays, is it a harbinger and desensitization concerning activities to come?].—Analysis of the spiritual, psychological, social and economic foundations and dynamic of this late Aztec religious cult, and what really were the motives, and who really benefited,—that is the challenge. This surely was not “capitalism”! But the Aztec society was sophisticated for its time, an urban society, with music, art, schooling, architecture, craftsmanship, agriculture, etc. which was not inferior to the contemporary Europeans, and was not just some naked savages. How and why was this society gripped by such a cult?—Who or what really benefits from all those suicide bombers? Not the persons who kill themselves, not really their cause because the suicidal killing creates horror and negative reaction to their cause, for the most part,—so who or what benefits? There are only much rage energies and fear energies generated in the aftermath. Who or what really benefits?
@ Scott and/or Serbian Girl,
In Peter’s block, there’s the mentioning of ‘step 8’ twice. I guess the last one should be ‘step 9.’
Cheers, and again, thanks.
I was reading a biography of Rosa Luxemburg at a website when I came across this paragraph:
“Karl Liebknecht was the only member of the Reichstag who voted against Germany’s participation in the First World War. He argued: “This war, which none of the peoples involved desired, was not started for the benefit of the German or of any other people. It is an Imperialist war, a war for capitalist domination of the world markets and for the political domination of the important countries in the interest of industrial and financial capitalism. Arising out of the armament race, it is a preventative war provoked by the German and Austrian war parties in the obscurity of semi-absolutism and of secret diplomacy.”
[much interesting stuff at this website, btw]
Things change but they never change.
Spartacus educational glorifies all things AngloZionist. And promotes the usual antiTsarist rubbish.
Which undermines the relevance of GrandmaR’s post..how, exactly?
“Saturday 26 – Armed attack on the ambulance station in Simferopol, Crimea. The doctors are killed, more injured.”
If this is connected in any way with the fascists and Ukraine.A total annihilation of pro-fascist elements throughout every inch of Crimea needs to be undertaken at once.Turn the job over to the patriotic militia forces in Crimea.And the Russian government need not interfere while they clean up the problem.It won’t be pretty,but it will be permanent.And Federal authorities need not get involved,nor should they get in the way.
“Warsaw Poland. Nazi swastikas on the monument of the Soviet troops fallen for liberation of Poland in WWII ”
As I’ve said before,Russia needs to repatriate all the bodies of her war dead back to Russia.The soil of the EU is too polluted by a “disease of the soul” to be worthy to have the heroes remains rest there.And I’ve sure it would be better for any Polish war dead or monuments of any kind to be returned to Poland at the same time.They seem to like polluted soil,and so would be more at home there.Russia should start with the Smolensk memorial from the plane crash.And any Katyn memorials around.From what I see on Russian boards,common Russian citizens advocate accomplishing that task for the Russian government. If the government has a problem standing up to Poland on the issue.
Poland Bans Russian Diplomat Ahead Of OSCE Meeting ! A Gross Violation By The Polish Regime !
The answer is clear here.Russia should announce they won’t be attending or giving any credence to results from any conferences held in nations that ban attendance of their delegates.So if a conference is held in one of those states, Russia no longer will be a part of that organization.And anything agreed from now on in that organization will not concern ,nor bind Russia in any way.
As far as Gownopolska is concerned:
A Katyn a day should keep Polaks at bay
Also adding my very own little Polish joke:
Q: What in Heaven’s name are a bunch of Psheks doing in far-away Siberia ?!?
A: As Psheks understand Geography, all roads lead to Rome.
Wonder if they’ll try to enforce Roman numerals upon us. Total retards.
Yats last week was calling for another Minsk as the current one runs out at the end of 2015…….but of course that is the pint, it should have been achieved by end of 20-15. and Ukr is infamous at procrastination….
the war is costing 5 m dollars a day
According to the leader of a criminal junta, this money could be invested in the sustainable development of the state. Poroshenko also said from the rostrum of the UN General Assembly on the crisis with internally displaced people in the Ukraine.
Ukraine because of the military operations in the Donbass daily loses $ 5 million, said on Sunday the president Petro Poroshenko.
“Every day of the war in the Donbas costs us about $ 5 million, which could be invested in sustainable development”, – he said at a summit on sustainable development goals of the United Nations.
For comparison, the Ukrainian state budget deficit for the first half of 2015 – 95 million dollars.
Poroshenko stressed that today there are some 1.5 million internally displaced persons. “The crisis of internally displaced persons, 1.5 million, is a huge problem not only for Ukraine but for the whole region”, – said the minister of the United States.
Poro trying political posturing and upstaging at Un…
(The Rus delegation except Churkin walked out of this speech
The Russian delegation quitted the United Nations General Assembly during Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s speech at the U.N. summit on sustainable development, a top-ranking Russian diplomat told TASS late on Sunday.
“We left the meeting hall in protest against his openly politicized and aggressive speech which had nothing to do with the summit’s topic,” the diplomat said.
One Russian diplomat however remained in the hall. When asked why this diplomat stayed, the source said, “The Russian side is in the habit of heeding its opponents and not ignoring their words.”
Initially, Poroshenko was to be the 14th to speak at the summit but took the floor 26th, just before Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. Under the United Nations rules, is a speaker cannot take the floor at a time appointed for him or her due to any reason, he or she is automatically placed “at the end of the line.” The Ukrainian president spoke in a group of heads of state and government, so he was the last to take the floor in this group before the “ministerial” part of the session that was opened by Russia’s Lavrov.
“We don’t know for sure was it Poroshenko’s deliberate intention to be postpone his speech or not,” a representative of the U.N. secretariat told TASS. However he said he thought it had been done deliberately by the Ukrainian delegation.
According to TASS information, the Russian foreign minister was offered to postpone his speech but Lavrov refused not to change his further schedule.)
fortruss article says:
“I think that the citizens of Ukraine, sitting in front of the TV, if did not shut it off, then spit on it.
Because the UN hardly heard more lies before coming from the podium.
A man, who dropped his country below Gabon in Africa, said literally the following:
“Regarding Ukraine, I would like to emphasize that we managed to:
reduce poverty threefold — however, due to Russian aggression we expect this indicator will fall
improve the maternal health system
cut child mortality by half [and how many babies did your army bomb in Donbass? – KR]
to reduce the incidence of HIV/AIDS
to make progress in the fight against tuberculosis [What about the shortage of vaccines and the polio epidemic? – KR]”
Also Poroshenko said:
“Today, Ukraine needs to implement the necessary systemic reforms, countering Russian aggression, trying to undermine democratic European development elected by the Ukrainian people [What about half the Ukrainian people who elected the Eurasian development? – KR]
As a result of treacherous Russian annexation of the Ukrainian Crimea and aggression in Donbass, thousands of people were killed.
Critical infrastructure was destroyed [Ukrainian army notoriously targeted critical infrastructure – KR]. Ukraine has lost about 1/5 of its economic potential [“Donbass lived on handouts from Kiev” – is what we heard from Kiev before – KR]
Military actions of Russia against Ukraine increased the environmental and epidemiological threats, and also risks associated with social exclusion. [“Let their children sit in basements, and our children go to school” – said Poroshenko earlier about the kids of Donbass, and who stopped paying retirement benefits to Donbass residents?]
The chemical compounds in the conflict zone in Eastern Ukraine and adjacent territories constitute a special hazard. [Especially when the Ukrainian army keeps targeting the Donetsk Chemical plant with their most powerful bombs – KR]
There is a terrible threat to potential man-made disasters [Ukraine is one huge disaster zone – KR].”
For the Russian delegation to listen to this nonsense, apparently, was intolerable. So our diplomats left the hall. “We left the hall in protest against overtly politicized and aggressive speech, which did not correspond to the declared theme of the summit,” – they explained.
Poroshenko detachment from reality has reached its peak apparently. After all, only a crazy man can say that the number of poor has decreased three times, on the background of the rapidly impoverished citizens. Although, maybe he meant that the number of poor is declining in the fields of the ATO. Then no one will hardly argue with that.”
I have absolutely no idea how Churkin managed to sit through this. The Russian delegation had to leave – they would have had collective apoplexy if they hadn’t.
Its like a violent rapist blaming the victim for the crime. Total defamation.
The man is an utter criminal with absolutely no hope of redemption. And Yats is even worse – if that’s humanly possible.
The Ukraine is absolutely doomed to becoming a total hell-hole if the Ukrainian Army doesn’t get its act together.
Cross the godamn line.
Join the resistance.
March on Kiev.
Just get them out.
I am in awe of Kristina Rus. How did she manage to do this translation without blowing her frontal lobes out?
“Russian Foreign Minister explained that the analytical material matched what was written in the “Minsk-2”, on the one hand, and, on the other hand, what has been done in practice. Kerry has promised to introduce the intelligence of US President Barack Obama.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov handed over to US Secretary John Kerry material associates recorded in the “Minsk-2” and made in connection with the parties to the conflict in Ukraine.
“We discussed the situation in Ukraine, we gave our American colleagues analytical material that matches what has been written in the” Minsk-2 “, on the one hand, and, on the other hand, what has been done in practice. John Kerry has assured that it is necessary to study the document to the meeting with the President and prepare its leader in a serious conversation, “- said Lavrov to journalists after a meeting with Kerry.
On Monday in New York on the sidelines of UN General Assembly held a bilateral meeting of US and Russian presidents Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin.”
just like VP saying they know everything re the Maidan …I can imagine this exchange also asked USA to provide any info re presence of Rus military in Donbass that maybe Kerry could not answer, but maybe what could happen if Ukr does try to provoke a false flag, or provoke Rus in any way or increase their military AFU action(reports of mortaring at Donetsk last day or so
“Ukrainian security officials on Saturday, 26 September, mortars fired from the Kuibyshev region of Donetsk during a gathering of citizens there. This was announced by the head of the district administration Ivan Prikhodko: “During the gathering of citizens Saturday at the intersection of Ershov and Rabfakovskoy opened fire with mortars. At this point there were about 200 people, all civilians. By sheer luck nobody was hurt ”
According to the district authorities, the fire was from the position of APU in the village of Sands.)
note UK duplicity as USA poodles
“Britain will dispatch military instructors to Ukraine and will grant precisely targets assistance to the Ukrainian military, Prime Minister David Cameron said on Sunday at a meeting with President Pyotr Poroshenko in New York.
“David Cameron gave assurances of Britain’s further willingness to support Ukraine in the defense of its territorial integrity both politically and practically by way of sending military instructors and granting precisely targeted aid to the Armed Forces,” the press service said.
Cameron and Poroshenko claimed at the meeting the elections in the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics on October 18 and November would be unacceptable and undermine the Minsk accords.”
latest OSCE SMM report Donbass
Aviation experts from the Netherlands arrived in Donetsk to collect data and to continue the investigation on the crash of the Boeing Malaysian Donbass downed Ukrainian security forces July 17, 2014.
This was reported by the Acting Attorney General Andrew DNI Spivak: “At present, Dutch experts have already arrived in Donetsk. Meeting with them is scheduled for tomorrow. ”
What exactly will be engaged experts, it is still unknown, most likely they will be to study the debris left over from the passenger liner.
In September this year, the militia found on the ill-fated field under Thorez many fragments of the fuselage, which can reveal the secret of the crash. Number of found fragments of “Boeing” is several thousand, among them – the personal belongings of the dead passengers. All of them are taken to the Prosecutor General’s office of Donetsk People’s Republic.”

Well you just have to hope that Chinese financial counter-measures will soon bring the whole rotten edifice of the USA down. It is very dangerous, of course, with the US run these days by sub-moronic psychopaths, rather than the clever psychopaths of yore.
Dear Scott thank you for your informative sitrep.
Dear Serbian Girl thank you for your sitrep on China and financial markets – a very important matter to watch. There is so much happening – things could easily be missed.
..,” and in those days you didn’t live
very long if you didn’t support the Junta and/
or collaborated with them when asked to.”
Which would make every Argentinian who survived the era complicit. So why stop at the current pope?
By your logic Putin and all who survived the Yeltsin era are also complicit in Russia’s post-Soviet destruction.
Btw, how do the Latin American liberation theologists and dissenters like the murdered bishop Romero fit in with these assumptions?
Why did the CIA murder Latin American jesuits if they are all on the same page?
Ps The memo was written and subsequently circulated by a supporter of the junta with CIA links. I would want better than that to prove active collaboration.
Lovely, very nice…
Let’s open with this picture:
^ That’s good ol’ Jorge Mario Bergoglio [now known as: “Saint” Francis] and General Jorge Videla.
“Washington’s Pope”? Who is Pope Francis? – Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio and Argentina’s “Dirty War”
“[..] Who is Jorge Mario Bergoglio?
In 1973, he had been appointed “Provincial” of Argentina for the Society of Jesus.
In this capacity, Bergoglio was the highest ranking Jesuit in Argentina during the military dictatorship led by General Jorge Videla (1976-1983).
He later became bishop and archbishop of Buenos Aires. Pope John Paul II elevated him to the title of cardinal in 2001 [..]”
“The military junta led by General Jorge Videla was responsible for countless assassinations, including priests and nuns who opposed military rule following the CIA sponsored March 24, 1976 coup which overthrew the government of Isabel Peron [..]”
“Wall Street and the Catholic Church Hierarchy – Wall Street was firmly behind the military Junta which waged “The Dirty War” on its behalf. In turn, the Catholic Church hierarchy played a central role in sustaining the legitimacy of the military Junta.
The Order of Jesus –which represented the Conservative yet most influential faction within the Catholic Church, closely associated with Argentina’s economic elites– was firmly behind the military Junta, against so-called “Leftists” in the Peronista movement.
“The Dirty War”: Allegations directed Against Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio – Condemning the military dictatorship (including its human rights violations) was a taboo within the Catholic Church [..]”
“In 2005, human rights lawyer Myriam Bregman filed a criminal suit against Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, accusing him of conspiring with the military junta in the 1976 kidnapping of two Jesuit priests.
Several years later, the survivors of the “Dirty War” openly accused Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio of complicity in the kidnapping of priests Francisco Jalics y Orlando Yorio as well six members of their parish [..]”
“Upon his release, Priest Orlando Yorio “accused Bergoglio of effectively handing them over [including six other people] to the death squads … Jalics refused to discuss the complaint after moving into seclusion in a German monastery.”

With Syria on the front page, it will be a while before I make use of all the excellent links.
Any chance these s-rs could be categorized separately for ease of reference?
Even the older ones are often worth re-checking: earlier reports often cross-pollinate with later, apparently disconnected events.
It would help to join up the dots.
