U.S. sanctions against Russia have now helped replace Exxon Mobile with Gazprom as world’s largest energy company

Perhaps one of the biggest ironies in the ongoing sanctions war against Russia is that the U.S. continues to shoot themselves in the foot the more they try to impose their economic will on Moscow. Over the past four years both the U.S. and Europe have seen economic declines once they chose to place a 'red line' against Russia over Washington's own funded Maidan coup in Ukraine.  And in the meantime, Russia ...

Russian finance minister working on regulatory groundwork for cryptocurrencies to end their ‘black market’ use

As we have mentioned in many articles here in the past, it was only a matter of time before individual governments begin to focus on cryptocurrencies and the myriad of other securities sprouting up on the blockchain.  In Japan for example, the government has readily accepted cryptos like Bitcoin as currency and are allowing their use within their general economy. However for China, Russia, and with the othe ...

U.S. becomes a rogue nation as it breaks long-standing international agreements with Russia over diplomatic immunity

During the decades of the Cold War, the West often referred to the former Soviet Union as both evil and paranoid, and the media in the U.S. and Europe went a long way towards pushing this propaganda into the hearts and minds of the people. Now 25 plus years after the fall of the Communist regime, the U.S. is once again trying to re-engineer a Cold War against Russia only this time the paranoia is in the sid ...

Israeli Prime Minister supports ISIS more than his willingness to negotiate with Iran

Even as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu currently deals with corruption charges and a difficult campaign to remain in office, the Israeli leader appears more than willing to keep the turmoil in the Middle East percolating.  And in a meeting on Wednesday with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Netanyahu all but stated to the Eurasian leader who helped bring an end to the Syrian conflict that his allegiance ...

America’s allies trust Vladimir Putin more on foreign affairs than they do President Trump and U.S. policy

When you combine President Trump's erratic stances on foreign policy along with Congress's propaganda conflict against Russia, you get a world where even the most staunchest allies of the United States are turning away from the 'Land of Freedom'. And in an interesting poll published on Aug. 17 by the Pew Research Group, more countries trust President Vladimir Putin when it comes to foreign policy than they ...

International community sees U.S. a much greater threat than both Russia and China

There is no denying that a large portion of the world sees the U.S. as having replaced the former Soviet Union as the biggest threat to world peace since the former Communist country's fall in 1991, but don't tell that to the politicians in Washington who feel their moral high ground is so great they can unilaterally intrude on the sovereignty of other nations contrary to international law.  And a new poll ...

Germany threatens retaliation against the U.S. if Congress pushes through bill for more Russian sanctions

If having U.S. businesses ready to lobby Congress to stop their fake indignation over Russia's protecting their own people and allies in Ukraine and Syria, it appears that Europe, and in particular Germany, have had enough of sanctions against Putin. In fact in light of Congress's new scheme to try to inflict a new round of Russian sanctions, and to hamstring President Trump from ever willingly removing the ...

Russia winning: U.S. companies comes together to lobby Washington about ending economic sanctions

For decades the U.S. has used economic sanctions as a 'stick' to try to coerce nations into ceding their wills to that of Washington's foreign policies.  But as alternatives to the dollar and to SWIFT have grown in the past 10-15 years, more and more countries held bondage to these sanctions have been able to bypass the dollar hegemonic system with the help of countries transitioning Eastward. Ever since th ...

Following Syrian cease-fire agreement with Putin, Trump orders an end to Obama policy of arming terrorists in region

In the final days of the G20 meeting earlier this month, President Trump concluded an agreement with Russian President Vladimir Putin to begin a cease-fire in certain regions of Syria.  And while the Neo-cons and liberal warmongers in Congress went into apoplexy over this, there was little they could do since America's occupation in Syria was really a grey area given that no declaration of war had ever been ...

Legendary investors states sanctions against Russia have actually helped their economy, not hurt it

Famous intellect Albert Einstein once coined the definition of insanity to be when one does the same things over and over and expects a different result.  And while Washington's use of economic sanctions may have achieved a certain amount of success a couple of decades ago when they were used against Iraq leading up to the Gulf War in 1991, and Hussein's final ouster in 2003, they have proven themselves to ...

It appears that Europe has finally had enough of sanctions against Russia

Even the most ideological and incompetent bureaucrat eventually gets the message as after nearly four years of declining exports, and hundreds of billions of euros lost in trade, the G7 on April 11 voted down a U.S.-UK led resolution to impose greater sanctions on Russian military and political figures following the false flag gas attack that occurred in Syria last week. Led by German and Italian members wi ...

Irony: U.S. sanctions against Russia have hurt American businesses more than they have Russian exports

Nearly 100 years ago President Calvin Coolidge issued the statement that, "the business of America is business."  However now in the 21st century this appears to be no longer the case, as the policies of the once greatest economy in history are now more about stifling business than they are about cultivating it. And this includes stifling their own. When President Obama attempted to blame Russia for the act ...
