Russia & China Declare All Out War on US Petrodollar — Prepare for Exclusive Trade in Gold

  • Russia & China Declare All Out War on US Petrodollar — Prepare for Exclusive Trade in Gold
    by Jay Syrmopoulos, http://thefreethoughtproject.com/
    The formation of a BRICS gold marketplace, which could bypass the U.S. Petrodollar in bilateral trade, continues to take shape as Russia’s largest bank, state-owned Sberbank, announced this week that its Swiss subsidiary had begun trading in gold on the Shanghai Gold Exchange.

    Russian officials have repeatedly signaled that they plan to conduct transactions with China using gold as a means of marginalizing the power of the dollar in bilateral trade between the geopolitically powerful nations. This latest movement is quite simply the manifestation of a larger geopolitical game afoot between great powers. According to a report published by Reuters:

    Sberbank was granted international membership of the Shanghai exchange in September last year and in July completed a pilot transaction with 200 kg of gold kilobars sold to local financial institutions, the bank said.

    Sberbank plans to expand its presence on the Chinese precious metals market and anticipates total delivery of 5-6 tonnes of gold to China in the remaining months of 2017.

    Gold bars will be delivered directly to the official importers in China as well as through the exchange, Sberbank said. Russia’s second-largest bank VTB is also a member of the Shanghai Gold Exchange.

    To be clear, there is a revolutionary transformation of the entire global monetary system currently underway, being driven by an almost perfect storm. The implications of this transformation are extremely profound for U.S. policy in the Middle East, which for nearly the past half century has been underpinned by its strategic relationship with Saudi Arabia.

Petrodollar Faces Growing Threat From the East. Payments in Gold Across Asia

  • Petrodollar Faces Growing Threat From the East. Payments in Gold Across Asia
    by Andrew BrennanAsia Times, 27 April 2017, via http://www.globalresearch.ca/
    While the recent raft of Sino-Saudi trade agreements benefited Chinese soft power in protecting Xinjiang, and the Saudis by diversifying their economy, China’s slow intertwining with Saudi Arabia complements the Sino-Russian alliance. Primarily, its benefits could lead to a realistic threat to the petrodollar.

    The Persian rival who showed the way
    In 2012/2013, the US Treasury Department, under the Obama administration, initiated a raft of sanctions in an amateurish fashion against the Central Bank of Iran. As we were told, it was done to tire and bleed Iranian economic and social life enough to draw Tehran into negotiations concerning its nuclear programme. The argument of were they/weren’t they pursuing a weaponized nuclear program isn’t important; how the Iranians circumvented these sanctions is.


    The sanctions were meant to be stifling, but the Iranians loosened this problematic liquidity noose by using all their banks that weren’t sanctioned, and sold rich Iranian oil to India. Of course, the Indians couldn’t pay Tehran directly. Neither could they pay bilaterally in rupees due to sanctions and infrastructure needed to trade in a bilateral currency. Instead, Iran requested that India pay in gold so India paid Turkey, the Middle East’s gold market, and Turkey gave Turkish gold to Iranian banks, which then swapped with the Central Bank of Iran.

    Turkey, for its part, may soon be the gold payment intermediator across Asia, and is already nationalizing the sector with a demand for private confiscation occurring to support the Turkish economy, but this has scarcely been reported.

    This clever evasion was known as the Iran-India-Turkey triangle. Iran was escaping the dominance of the US dollar and trading in real money, not a hegemonic fiat currency that was being printed hot-off-the-press all day. They were dealing in gold; not something that could be strangled through SWIFT and electrons traded on a screen easily. A simple intermediator and precious metals could break Obama’s heralded “crippling” sanctions.

    Iran ideologically, as well as practically, wants nothing to do with the US dollar but rather it wants to be free of monetary pressures by the US on its domestic policies. The effectiveness of this evasion was a preview to what countries like China, Russia, and to a lesser extent India and South Korea, have all been trying to do: increase their independence from the US dollar. The Iranian gold triangle showed successful independence from US dollar reliance.

    The Chinese usurpers and their yellow metal
    Fast forward to March 2017; the Russian Central Bank opened its first overseas office in Beijing as an early step in phasing in a gold-backed standard of trade. This would be done by finalizing the issuance of the first federal loan bonds denominated in Chinese yuan and to allow gold imports from Russia.

Seismic Shift In Syria: Trump Ends Covert Obama-era CIA Program Which Sent Arms To Jihadists

  • May be Donald Trump has not sold out 100% to the MIC after all.
  • Seismic Shift In Syria: Trump Ends Covert Obama-era CIA Program Which Sent Arms To Jihadists
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com
    In what may be one of the most significant foreign policy decisions of his first year in office, Trump is shutting down the CIA’s covert program to arm rebels fighting the Syrian government. This would constitute a monumental shift in terms of US priorities in Syria which throughout most of the 6-year long war have focused on removing Bashar al-Assad. The Washington Post reports:

    Officials said Trump made the decision to scrap the CIA program nearly a month ago, after an Oval Office meeting with CIA Director Mike Pompeo and national security adviser H.R. McMaster ahead of a July 7 meeting in Germany with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    The move is consistent with signals coming out of the White House over the past months, as well as in keeping with Trump’s early campaign promises that he would seek to wind down the war in Syria by making ISIS the only objective, and not the removal of Assad. There have been additional hints at willingness to work closer with Russia in a strategic anti-terror partnership in Syria.  Secretary of State Tillerson’s said in an April interview with ABC News, as well several weeks ago, that Assad’s fate would be up for the Syrian people to decide, adding that:

Trump Slams “Fake News Story Of Secret Dinner With Putin” At G-20 – “Press Knew!”

  • Trump Slams “Fake News Story Of Secret Dinner With Putin” At G-20 – “Press Knew!”
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com
    President Trump has tweeted in on the latest “scoop” from the media about his “dealings” with Russian president Putin… 
    ….
    As we detailed earlier, it has been exactly one week since the latest Russia story involving Trump, or in this particular case his son, and with attentions once again starting to drift from the main news cycle narrative of the year, which was eclipsed today by the Senate republicans’ humiliating failure to replace or repeal Obamacare, on Tuesday afternoon a White House official said that Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin held a second, “previously undisclosed” (except to all the world leaders who were in the room at the time) meeting at the G-20.

    According to Reuters, the White House confirmed that the meeting took place during the G-20 heads of state dinner, hours after Trump’s formal bilateral sit-down with Putin. In that conversation, Trump spoke with the Russian leader for roughly an hour, joined only by Putin’s translator. And while the meeting took place in the open in front of all other leaders, it had previously gone without mention by the White House.

    There was a couples-only social dinner at the G-20; toward the end, the president spoke to Putin at the dinner,” NSC spokesman Michael Anton says.

  • Pope Francis: World Government Must Rule U.S. ‘For Their Own Good’
    by Baxter Dmitry, http://yournewswire.com/
    Pope Francis told the Italian newspaper La Repubblica that the United States of America has “a distorted vision of the world” and Americans must be ruled by a world government, as soon as possible, “for their own good.”

    The Pope made the observation in an interview with La Repubblica reporter Eugenio Scalfari.

    Last Thursday, I got a call from Pope Francis,” Scalfari reported. “It was about noon, and I was at the newspaper when my phone rang.”

    He said Pope Francis had been watching Putin and Trump at the G20 and had become agitated. The Pope demanded to see him at four that afternoon, according to a Google translation of the Italian report.


    Pope Francis told me to be very concerned about the meeting of the G20,” Scalfari wrote.

    As translated into English by Agence France Presse, which picked up the story, the Pope said “I am afraid there are very dangerous alliances between powers who have a distorted view of the world: America and Russia, China and North Korea, Russia and Assad in the war in Syria.”

    The danger concerns immigration,” the Pope continued to La Repubblica. “Our main and unfortunately growing problem in the world today is that of the poor, the weak, the excluded, which includes migrants.

Russia and China Play WAR: Destroyers Descend on Kaliningrad for Major Baltic Sea Drills

  • Russia and China Play WAR: Destroyers Descend on Kaliningrad for Major Baltic Sea Drills
    by ZOIE O’BRIEN, http://www.express.co.uk/
    RUSSIA will take part in massive military drills commencing this week as China sends one of its most advanced missile destroyers to the Baltic coast.

    Elite forces from both nations will descend on European borders as they conduct war games with their most fierce machinery. The Joint Sea 2017 naval drills were confirmed by the Russian Defense Ministry ahead of the start of the Baltic phase of the exercise, on Friday. A dozen warships, helicopters and other military aircraft will be involved in the display of military prowess.

    The Russian ministry said: “The main goals of the exercises are to increase the efficiency in cooperation between the two fleets in countering security threats at sea, to train compatibility of the crews of Russian and Chinese warships, to strengthen friendship and cooperation between the Russian Navy and the Naval Forces of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army.”

    Baltiysk in Russia’s Kaliningrad region will play host to the Chinese naval forces on July 21 for an official welcoming ceremony. Then, the drills which have taken place between the two nations since 2012, will kick off between July 24 and 27.

Israel Rejects Cease-fire Deal Between U.S. And Russia In South Syria

  • Israel Rejects Cease-fire Deal Between U.S. And Russia In South Syria
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com
    One month after the WSJ reported that Israel had been secretly funding the Syrian rebel opposition to Assad’s regime for years in hopes of keeping the Syrian political situation unstable and preventing the Syrian – and Iranian – regime’s military from becoming a substantial threat, overnight Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told reporters after his meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron on Sunday that Israel opposes the cease-fire agreement in southern Syria that the United States and Russia reached “because it perpetuates the Iranian presence in the country.”

    Quoted by Haaretz, a senior Israeli official said Israel “is aware of Iranian intentions to substantially expand its presence in Syria”, and added that Iran is not only interested in sending advisers to Syria but also in dispatching extensive military forces including the establishment of an airbase for Iranian aircraft and a naval base. “This already changes the picture in the region from what it has been up to now,” the official said.

The US Deep State: Sabotaging Putin-Trump Ceasefire Agreement in Syria

  • Emphasis mine:
  • The US Deep State: Sabotaging Putin-Trump Ceasefire Agreement in Syria
    by FEDERICO PIERACCINI, https://www.strategic-culture.org/
    … The most important agreement concerned a ceasefire in southern Syria along the border with Israel and Jordan. This is a very active area of fighting, and so the ceasefire obviates the possibility of dangerous confrontations between the United States and Russia, as well as between Syria and Israel, which could escalate out of control as seen when the US Air Force shot down a Syrian Su-22 jet as well an Iranian drone. Israel, from its position in the occupied Golan Heights, has repeatedly struck the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), in a desperate effort to halt its gains against al Qaeda and Daesh terrorists.

    In their first meeting, within less than two hours, Putin and Trump came to an agreement on potentially the most volatile situation in the region, saving hundreds of civilian lives in the process. The agreement on Syria now has to run the gauntlet of the deep state and all the other interests arrayed against Trump. Just four days following a similar agreement reached in 2016 between Obama and Putin, everything was upended by the US Air Force bombing and killing nearly a hundred soldiers of the Syrian Arab Army in Deir ez-Zor, shredding the ceasefire agreement that had just been reached.

    Trump is dealing with the same occult forces that sabotaged Obama’s ceasefire agreement. It is impossible to know how much strategic support the US deep state has for the ceasefire decision. Ever since the SAA reached the Iraqi border north of al-Tanf, the space available for the US and her allies to maneuver has been dramatically diminished. With al-Tanf isolated, Washington’s ceasefire does not change or shift the already heavily altered balance of power in that area of Syria. For all these reasons, the ceasefire does not appear to be a concession by either party but merely a commonsense move to lessen the possibility of a direct confrontation between super-powers.

Jim Willie: Global Reserve Currency at Risk

  • Jim Willie: Global Reserve Currency at Risk
    by Jim Willie, http://www.goldenjackass.com/, via http://www.goldseek.com/
    Within the US borders, the population remains largely ignorant of the true significance of the global currency reserve concept. It is of paramount importance, yet almost never discussed in the financial press. The public within the United States simply assumes the country operates with the USDollar as its currency, with near blindness to its global role in trade and banking. The end of an era is coming, as the change will be powerful in its effect. The shock wave could hit this year in some form, in a manner to highlight its importance.

    MEANING OF CURRENCY RESERVE
    The term is tossed around in common manner, often without an explanation of what it means. A strict meaning is followed by a practical meaning. The USDollar serves as global currency reserve, insofar as the USTreasury Bond is the standard for bank reserve core asset usage. Numerous countries have a core foundation to their national banking system. They maintain core assets and ratios. It is not gold bullion, but rather the USGovt debt. It is the USTBond denominated in USDollars. Of course, such practice is upside down and lunatic. Debt operating as core assets in the global banking system is utterly reckless, insane, and bound to force a systemic breakdown. Such is the heresy and risk from the banker cabal.


    The practical side of global currency reserve system is that trade payments are standardized as being executed in USDollar terms. A crude oil shipment, a grain shipment, a container vessel shipment, they are paid in USD terms, often with short-term USTreasury Bills. Also, international contracts like for consulting services or for installation of IT systems typically are written for payment in USD terms. As a result, the nations set to pay for a shipment or contract maintain huge USTreasury stores in their banking systems, ready to complete the trade payments.
