New Senate Docs ‘Confirm’ Troubling Biden Family Links To China, Russia

0

from ZeroHedge:

With Joe Biden’s ‘irregularity-filled’ election win all but assured (unless the Trump campaign can pull off several upset legal victories), we now turn our attention back to the Biden family’s ties to Russia and China – a narrative which the MSM will attempt to suffocate out of existence – particularly if Republicans (and their investigative committees) lose the Senate after January’s runoff in Georgia.

Russia, Turkey, Iran to Decide Syria’s Fate; US Still Holding On to Oilfields

from Russia Insider:

What happened in Geneva this Wednesday, in terms of finally bringing peace to Syria, could not be more significant: the first session of the Syrian Constitutional Committee.

The Syrian Constitutional Committee sprang out of a resolution passed in January 2018 in Sochi, Russia, by a body called the Syrian National Dialogue Congress.

Russia, China Continue “Massive Substitution” Of Dollar Assets By Gold

from ZeroHedge:

“I think it’s clear to everyone now” exclaimed Russian President Vladimir Putin, (and French President Macron recently said so publicly), “that the leading role of the West is ending. I cannot imagine an effective international organization without [Russia], India and China.”

And while most politicians are all talk, in the case of both Russia and China, their actions speak louder than their words.

Russia, China, Iran & Venezuela developing crypto to challenge US financial control – study

from RT:

A new report by the American Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) says the US’ geopolitical adversaries are deploying blockchain technology to help avoid sanctions and counter US financial power.

According to the FDD, with the increase of adoption of cryptocurrencies around the world, efforts are underway to build new systems for transferring value that work outside of conventional banking infrastructure.

Governments in Russia, China, Iran, and Venezuela are experimenting with the technology that underpins the crypto market, said the report. They are prioritizing blockchain technology as a “key component of their efforts to counter US financial power.”

U.S., Russia, China Cooperation Portends New Paradigm for Mankind

by Harley Schlanger, LaRouche PAC:

President Donald Trump’s visit to North Korea, meeting with Kim Jong Un, while restoring the “Singapore Spirit” in bilateral relations between the U.S. and North Korea, actually represents far more than that—potentially a major leap for mankind. Helga Zepp-LaRouche noted today that, while the meeting came up suddenly on Sunday, June 30, it “reflects the entire process leading up to the meeting between Trump and Putin, Trump and Xi Jinping—and I think there has been in the background an absolutely incredible effort to go in this direction. This is a big step in the direction of the Four Powers working together.”

IRAN, RUSSIA, CHINA, AND THE SILK ROAD

by Joseph P. Farrell, Giza Death Star:

This has been one of those weeks in which news events have overtaken my original intentions for articles to blog about. And this is one of those cases, as E.G. brought this article from Zero Hedge to my attention:

Declassified: The Sino-Russian Masterplan To End U.S. Dominance In Middle East

In yesterday’s New’s and and Views from the Nefarium, I outlined a high octane speculation scenario concerning the recent attacks on tankers in the Persian Gulf. There’s no question that attacks occurred. The real question is, who actually did it and how was it actually done? Iran, as the US is claiming? Or is this a false flag? Was it a mine? or as the Japanese ship’s crew maintains, something that flew into the ship?

Russia, EU Keen to Drop Dollar for Euro (and Ruble!) in Mutual Trade

from Russia Insider:

Moscow and Brussels are keen on quickly extending the use of the ruble and the euro to bilateral payments, the Russian Finance Minister said, after a meeting with the European Commission for Energy Union’s vice-president.

During their talks in Moscow this week, Russia’s Anton Siluanov and commissioner Maroš Šefčovič, discussed switching to the national currencies for payments for energy resources. [Obviously EU doesn’t export any energy to Russia so what this really means is that Russia would take euros for its gas and later possibly oil.] 

“Wars And Rumors Of Wars”: The U.S., Venezuela, Cuba, Russia, India And Pakistan All Move Closer To Military Conflict

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

Humanity never seems to learn.  During the 20th century, at least 108 million people were killed during all wars combined, and you would think that after so much bloodshed humanity would never want to go down that road again.  And in this century, an enormous amount of American blood has already been shed in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere.  Unfortunately, the drumbeats of war are starting to get louder once again.  Very angry talk often precedes military conflict, and right now there sure is a lot of angry talk going on.

Russia, China, India and Iran: The Magic Quadrant That is Changing the World

by Federico Pieraccini, Strategic Culture:

With the end of the unipolar moment, which saw Washington dominate international relations, the richest and most powerful Eurasian countries are beginning to organize themselves into alliance structures and agreements that aim to facilitate trade, development and cooperation.

At the height of the US unipolar moment, Bill Clinton was leading a country in full economic recovery and the strategists at the Pentagon were drawing up plans to shape the world in their own image and likeness. The undeclared goal was regime change in all countries with unapproved political systems, which would allow for the proliferation of us-made “democracy” to the four corners of the earth. Clearly Eurasian countries like Russia, India, China and Iran were on top of the to-do list, as were countries in the Middle East and North Africa.

Russia, China Postpone Deal on Yuan-Ruble Settlements – Russian Finance Minister

from Sputnik News:

About a month prior to this development, the head of the Russian state development bank Vnesheconombank told media that Moscow and Beijing can sign an agreement on settlements in national currencies by the end of the year.

Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov has announced that Moscow and Beijing decided to postpone signing an agreement on mutual settlements in national currencies, even as the two countries strive to reduce the share of US dollar in bilateral trade.

Russia, Ukraine and the Minsk agreement fiction (Exclusive!)

from The Saker:

Rostislav Ishchenko is arguably the leading international analyst focused on the extraordinarily turbulent Russia-Ukraine relations. He posts regularly on Ukraina.ru, with frequent English translations here.

In contrast to the 24/7 “Russian aggression” demonization campaign effective on all corners of the Beltway and spreading towards selected European capitals, Ishchenko’s analysis, for instance of the information war deployed on all fronts of the Russia-Ukraine saga comes as a breath of fresh air.

Although we were not able to meet in person during my recent visit to Moscow, due to conflicting schedules (the meeting will take place later in the winter), Ishchenko graciously accepted to answer my most pressing questions regarding what could happen next on the Russia-Ukraine front, with translation by Scott Humor.
