Russia Looks to Eliminate US Dollar from Trade with African Countries – Official

  • Russia Looks to Eliminate US Dollar from Trade with African Countries – Official
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Russian corporations are ready to find an alternative to the greenback in mutual settlements with countries of the African continent, according to the chairman of the Russia-Zimbabwe Business Council, Dmitry Mazepin.

    “I think, it is possible to use other currencies in Africa,”
     Mazepin, who is also a co-owner of Russia’s largest fertilizer manufacturers, Uralchem and Russian fertilizer group Uralkali, told journalists. “We know that VTB is planning to extend its activity in the region. So, we could switch to settlements in the currencies that are more convenient to the lender.”

    Earlier this month, the Russian authorities announced plans to take all necessary steps towards de-dollarization of the country’s economy. The key point of the ambitious plan is to make it more profitable for key Russian exporters to use rubles instead of dollars.

    The measure is reportedly aimed at protecting the country’s economy against imminent US sanctions that threaten to ban investing in Russia’s sovereign bonds, as well as to cut the country off from dollar transactions. The official said that Russian companies still face some difficulties doing business in Africa, with logistics being one of the more challenging problems.

    “Not all the African countries have access to sea or ocean. Not all the territories have rail roads,”
    Mazepin said, stressing that Russian firms have to arrange difficult logistic chains to set up supplies. Financial guarantees are seen as another vital issue, according to the businessman.


    “It’s important to settle the way of payment, as most of the countries are very unstable from financial point of view,”
     he said, adding the problem could be solved ether by using banking mechanisms or supplies on a deferred-payment basis. “However, using the second option we assume some risks,” Mazepin said.

Russia Working to Ditch Dollar, Euro in Trade With Asia, Africa

  • Russia Working to Ditch Dollar, Euro in Trade With Asia, Africa
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia is actively working to switch over to settlements in national currencies with the countries of the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Latin America and Africa, Russian Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov told Sputnik.

    “This process is not quick [transition to national currency settlements], and we launched it not in the form of a response to sanctions. We have been systematically conducting this work for several years, accumulated practice and have experience regarding the work of commercial banks and the Central Bank in those countries where it is advantageous for us to carry out this work,” Manturov said.

    “This applies less to European countries, more to the countries of the Middle East, Southeast Asia, even Latin America, Africa,” he added.

    Russian car manufacturers are switching to national currencies in payments with Turkey for supplies of components, a number of companies have announced such plans, Denis Manturov said.

Macron’s Soft Power Push in Africa is Key to ‘Making France Great Again’

Macron said he wanted to rule as a ‘Jupiter’, above the political fray.

  • Have I concluded 100% that Macron is the Man of Sin? NO! He definitely fits the bill in certain aspects. His statement of wanting to rule like Jupiter/Zeus – the Roman god of gods, certainly makes him a top candidate.
  • However, I have found no evidence of him being Jewish. Theologically, the Bible implies that the Man of Sin is a Jew. Would I be surprise if he is really a Jew? Not at all because Satanic bloodlines are very good at hiding their genealogies. Having said this, if for argument sake, someone provides evidence that he is Jewish. Does it mean Macron is definitely the Son of Perdition? My answer is NO! Because the modern definition of a Jew is not the biblical definition. I have shown that modern Jews (90+% of modern Jewry) are NOT semitic people ie. they are NOT the descendants of the 12 tribes of Israel. So, we need to be very discerning with this Jewish bloodline issue of the Anti-Christ.
  • The next theological reason for not concluding 100% that Macron is the one, is that I do not believe 2Thess 2:9-12 has occurred. We don’t want to jump ahead of biblical events but to think in terms of probabilities. The probability is non zero that Macron is the candidate. Events which are about to happen will help us make a more accurate assessment. There is really no need to confirm 100%, he is the one, or reject 100%, he is not the one.
  • Macron’s Soft Power Push in Africa is Key to ‘Making France Great Again’
    by http://www.france24.com/en/
    President Emmanuel Macron arrives Tuesday in Nigeria on his latest soft power mission while attempting to reassure African nations that France’s interest in the continent is more than just colonialism revisited.

    Africa has emerged as a cornerstone of Macron’s effort to boost France’s global influence. A high-profile November trip to West Africa was aimed at redefining France’s relationship with its former colonies Burkina Faso and Ivory Coast, and marked the first official visit by a French president to the Anglophone nation of Ghana.

    Macron has made clear that vigorous French engagement on the world stage would be a priority of his administration, declaring in no uncertain terms that “France is back.”

    And he has largely succeeded in reversing France’s waning influence after just a year in office, according to Christian Lequesne, a specialist in French foreign policy at Sciences Po university in Paris. “We went from being a country in decline to a country that’s moving forward, full of energy,” Lequesne told FRANCE 24 in an interview last month.

    In his first-ever annual address to France’s 170 ambassadors in August, Macron reiterated plans to keep the African continent at the core of his foreign policy, stating his conviction that “the future of the world will largely be played out in Africa”. He has also established a new Presidential Council for Africa, whose 11 inaugural members will advise him on African issues and help him prepare for visits to the continent.

Israel ‘Selling Nuclear Information’ to Saudi: Israeli Expert

  • Who is behind the proliferation of nuclear weapons in the Middle East? America and Zionist ‘666’ Israel, the Satanic counterfeit. Who refuses to sign the NNPT (Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty)? Zionist ‘666’ Israel. Iran has signed it.
  • Behind the Extravagant Hype of an Israeli-Saudi ‘Courtship’, Israel Is Setting the Price for Riyadh to Go Nuclear
    by  https://www.haaretz.com/, 14 Feb 2018
    The exaggerated reports and rumours about ever-closer ties are trial balloons: Jerusalem is signalling its reluctant assent to Riyadh obtaining a nuclear deterrent – but at a high price
    ….
    Israel has good reason to be concerned. According to reports, the Trump administration might be willing to lower certain safeguards that prevent U.S. companies from sharing sensitive nuclear technology with Saudi Arabia for fear that it might be used to develop weapons. This administration might not insist on the same precautions that Obama did in its nuclear cooperation agreement with Abu Dhabi, for example, which forfeited its right to enrich uranium or reprocess plutonium.
    ….
    It is more than possible that through its media campaign, Israel is sending a signal to Riyadh that it understands very well Saudi Arabia’s desire for a nuclear deterrent regarding Iran – but there’s a price to be paid for Israel reducing the level of its direct and indirect opposition in Congress to an independent Saudi nuclear capability.

    Obviously, Riyadh would prefer Washington’s blessing and support in developing its nuclear energy program within the rules of the global nonproliferation treaty rather than having to develop the program clandestinely with the aid of other states. Israel senses this, and would be willing to help Riyadh, but has set the price high.

    Israel would far prefer a covert alliance with Saudi Arabia to contain Iran over the U.S. allowing Riyadh to develop an independent nuclear deterrent. But Jerusalem is working to prepare for both eventualities. Whether that strategy will work remains to be seen.

  • Israel ‘Selling Nuclear Information’ to Saudi: Israeli Expert
    by http://www.presstv.com/
    Israel is selling Saudi Arabia information that would allow the kingdom to develop nuclear weapons, a senior Israeli nuclear expert has revealed.

    Ami Dor-On, a senior nuclear commentator with the Israeli military organization iHLS, said the cooperation has been made possible in the wake of the widening ties between Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and is indicative of an emerging nuclear arms race in the region.

    “This information should shock us as we see the world is changing for the worse, following the race for the possession of nuclear weapons that pass right over our heads in the Middle East,” the Middle East Monitor quoted the expert as saying on Thursday, citing a report by Arabi21.

    According to the Israeli writer, the Tel Aviv regime is aware that Saudis would eventually make the move for developing nuclear weapons and want to make sure they would not go to other regional players such as Pakistan to obtain the know-how.

    “It can be assumed that Israel may take the initiative to develop Saudi Arabia’s efforts to acquire nuclear weapons and not leave it solely to Pakistan, given the growing Saudi-Israeli relations,” the expert added.

    Dor-On claimed that Pakistan has already signaled its willingness to transfer the expertise to Saudi Arabia “within a month” should the arms race intensify.

De-Dollarization Escalates: “African Economy Needs More Usage Of Chinese Yuan”

  • De-Dollarization Escalates: “African Economy Needs More Usage Of Chinese Yuan”
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    The world’s push towards de-dollarization continues to accelerate as Americans go about their daily lives worrying more about blasphemous comedians, participation trophies, and Kim and Kanye’s traitorous behavior.

    From yuan-denominated oil futures (and soon to be yuan-denominated metals contracts) to Europe’s decision to use Yuan to pay for Iranian oil; and from non-dollar settlement systems for Russia/Chinese trade to Turkey’s call for citizens to dump the dollar, it appears each action of the Trump administration deepens the distrust in the dollar hegemony, coalescing the world against Washington’s reserve currency unipolar order.

    All of which leads to this… In a well-placed interview in China’s Xinhua news – the official press agency of the People’s Republic of China – officials from Africa are seen calling for more yuanification of the massive continent’s economies.

Sahara Desert Covered in 15 inches of SNOW as Freak Weather Blankets Sand Dunes. Global Warming is a HOAX!

Snow has covered the Sahara Desert in Ain Sefra, Algeria

  • Sahara Desert Covered in 15 inches of SNOW as Freak Weather Blankets Sand Dunes
    by HELEN BARNETT, https://www.express.co.uk/
    HEAVY snow has covered the Sahara Desert in a freak winter weather storm. More than 15 inches (40cm) has blanketed sand dunes across the small town of Ain Sefra, Algeria.

    It is the second time snow has hit in nearly 40 years, with a dusting also recorded in December 2016. But this snowfall which hit yesterday, is much deeper than the fleeting shower little more than a year ago. Locals, who endure temperatures of 37C in summer, were stunned as dense snow settled on the town, known as ‘the gateway to the desert’.

    Photographer Karim Bouchetata, who captured the remarkable images, said: “We were really surprised when we woke up to see snow again. It stayed all day on Sunday and began melting at around 5pm.”

    Last year’s flurry brought chaos across the town, with passengers stranded on buses after the roads became slippery and icy. Children made snowmen and even sledged on the sand dunes.
