Ukraine crisis oddities: Tycoon George Soros wants US to crash oil market

The US government already sold 5 million barrels as a subtle hint a little over a week ago.

Selling oil from the strategic oil reserve would hurt the USA more than anything else in the long-run. After that’s gone, what else would America have to fall back on during a crisis? At a time when Russia could trade oil in any other currency but Dollars in retaliation, sending the US economy back into the stone age, would such an action with limited effect be worth it? If the Dollar is dead and there is no strategic reserve, then what? Soros, who nearly killed the British economy overnight, and is a convicted felon in France, does not have the best interests of the country in mind. People like Soros are smarter than this and know the likely outcome(s) for their actions, and given his past record, could most likely sparking an intentional attack on the U.S. from within via provocation with Russia.

Obama Says Putin Must Pull Back on Crimea Annexation

Another day, another ‘line’ drawn in the sand.

President Barack Obama today imposed sanctions on seven top Russian government officials and four others from Ukraine and warned Russia will face more penalties if it doesn’t pull back from Crimea.

“Continued Russian military intervention in Ukraine will only deepen Russia’s diplomatic isolation and exact a greater toll on the Russian economy,” Obama said at the White House. The U.S. can “calibrate our response” based on whether Russia chooses “to escalate or to de-escalate the situation.” Continue reading

Russia gains vast new area twice the size of Crimea with ‘the energy riches of an Ali Baba’s cave’

Russia warns could ‘reduce to zero’ economic dependency on US

A grave mistake is to think that this can’t happen or won’t happen, or that the Russians don’t have the capability. China and Russia have both publicly expressed their unity against the USA and the EU after engineering the chaos running through the Ukraine at this moment. Previously they’ve always been united behind scenes, but as they both grow and advance militarily, economically and politically they can be out in the open about it — especially now that they have been given cause.

China has also previously threatened the ‘nuclear option’ on the US Dollar. For additional information, read the following article: China threatens ‘nuclear option’ of dollar sales

The USA, which is drunk off its own power, becoming more corrupt daily and rotting from within might have to face a grave and sobering reality — and sooner rather than later. America is not untouchable.

Europe also faces the same fate as the Heizung can be turned off at any given moment. You’ll also likely see a united Europe like never before as a result, unlike America where its current administration keeps drawing a new line in the sand each time it back-peddles.

Moscow (AFP) – Russia could reduce to zero its economic dependency on the United States if Washington agreed sanctions against Moscow over Ukraine, a Kremlin aide said on Tuesday, warning that the American financial system faced a “crash” if this happened.

“We would find a way not just to reduce our dependency on the United States to zero but to emerge from those sanctions with great benefits for ourselves,” said Kremlin economic aide Sergei Glazyev.

He told the RIA Novosti news agency Russia could stop using dollars for international transactions and create its own payment system using its “wonderful trade and economic relations with our partners in the East and South.”

Russian firms and banks would also not return loans from American financial institutions, he said.

“An attempt to announce sanctions would end in a crash for the financial system of the United States, which would cause the end of the domination of the United States in the global financial system,” he added. Continue reading

Putin to visit Brussels as ‘Eurasian Union’ leader

Russian President Vladimir Putin is expected to attend the EU-Russia summit in Brussels later this month. But he will make sure his hosts welcome him as the representative of the Eurasian Union – Putin’s pet geopolitical project, which bears similarities to the EU.

The summit is the second to take place this year, after a first summit in St. Petersburg in June where Putin listed conditions for signing a new basic treaty between Russia and the EU.

Putin said he would not advance negotiations unless the EU formalised relations with the so-called Common Economic Space involving Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan (see background). The three countries have also forged a customs union. Continue reading

Russia Prepared for Possible Economic Meltdown – Putin

Soviet propaganda outlet, RIA Novosti, bringing attention to Russia in a light that presents the nation as a possibile savior should the world economy go down tomorrow:

Russia may became a so-called tugboat for the global economy as the country is seen by foreign investors as a state with a growing consumer market, upgrading industrial sector and improving investment climate, Head of Europe, Middle East & Africa for Japan’s Mizuho Corporate Bank, Atsushi Narikawa, said on Wednesday.

“Although there are still many problems, we expect that Russia could play a role of a tug for world economy in future owing to improvement [of the investment climate and industrial upgrade],” Narikawa told RIA Novosti.

“Russia with its breathtaking economic growth in recent years is one of the most important markets for Mizuho Corporate Bank. There is no coincidence in that, as the bank’s achievements in Russia have grown rapidly in recent years,” he added.
