What America Does Not Understand About Russia & Oil

While successful this time around the Russian’s via Putin are more than able to cope with an oil rout for the near future. Already the devaluation of the Russian Rubble means that oil revenues will in fact be more in Rubles than last year since the devaluation is currently wider than the correction of the oil price itself.

Why Russia’s Unfazed by Falling Oil Prices

Oil is not quite as powerful a weapon against modern-day Russia as one might think. If Russia ramps up production to raise revenues, it will lead to a bigger fall in oil prices. And one of the primary victims will be US shale production. The slide in oil prices threatens American energy independence & emboldens rather than weakens Russia.

How Financial Warfare Could Bring America to Its Knees

A financial war is brewing right now with Russia. There’s a big difference, in imposing sanctions on Russia & confronting Iran. Russia might freeze U.S. assets in Russia, they could dump U.S. treasury bills, drive up U.S. interest rates, sink our housing markets & stock markets, which are sort of propped up by low rates, & do much more.

Gold And Silver – Is the Golden Rule Broken?

Why has the concerted effort to suppress gold and silver been so unopposed by China & Russia when either country could “stick it” to the West & collapse the “dollar” & Western central banks in a day? It may also be that China & Russia are assisting IMF as it is not in their best interest to see gold and silver “reset” dramatically higher.

New Currency Wars Cometh - Gold To Be “Last Man Standing”

Volatility in the currency markets is likely to increase greatly. If competitive devaluation of currencies accelerate, fiat currencies risk losing value versus gold. In worst case scenarios some may revert to their intrinsic value – zero. When the dust settles gold will be the last man standing as it cannot be created or destroyed by governments.

China to Obama: “Shut Up and Mind Your Own Business”

First Russia, and now China. The US is being firmly put in its place by the emerging superpowers in the world. First it was President Putin standing up to Obama over Syria in 2013. Then again in early 2014, Putin stood up to the US sanctions. Now China has sent a sharp official message to the US, warning it to stop meddling.

The Russian Empire Strikes Back

The Russians will get through these & even further sanctions from the United States. Natural gas in Europe currently sells at more than a 100% premium to North American natural gas prices. When US imposes a sanction on Russian uranium, then its serious. Until then, current sanctions are nothing more than political posturing.

Gold And Silver Will Rise With “Dollar” Demise, Not Just Now

The collapse of the derivatives may be a function of or cause of the “dollar” collapse, and when it happens, it will be the triggering mechanism to catapult gold higher “overnight,” literally. Not owning physical gold is a huge risk. Retaining whatever physical already in possession will be a financial life-saver.

France Assures Push Against Petrodollar Is Not A "Fight Against Dollar Imperialism"

To complete the French triple whammy offensive against the US Dollar, French FM says “now is the right time to bolster the use of the euro” adding, more ominously for the dollar, “we sell ourselves aircraft in dollars. Is that really necessary?” But carefully added up with diplomacy, “This is not a fight against dollar imperialism.”

Russia And China About To Sign "Holy Grail" Gas Deal

Russia is preparing the announcement of the “Holy Grail” energy deal (a natural gas supply deal that is apparently now close after years of negotiations) with China, a move which would send geopolitical shockwaves around the world and bind the two nations in a commodity-backed axis.

The Honeymoon Is Over: Ukraine To Stun Citizens With 40% Gas Price Hike

Ukraine expects to increase domestic gas prices by 40% once discounted import prices from Russia expire, the country’s Energy Minister Yury Prodan told journalists in the European Parliament on Thursday. Ukraine may end up with hyperinflation of all goods and services within the year.
