Ready For A Hot Weekend

Is the war in Ukraine about to get significantly hotter? All signs point to an imminent increase in hostilities and direct Russian involvement. I guess we'll just sit back and watch as there's not much else we can do.

Earlier today, the Russian "humanitarian convoy" crossed the border into Ukraine and there are already pictures of white trucks on the ground in Lugansk.

The Ukraine Ministry of Foreign Affairs was quick to respond, calling this "an illegal crossing" and a "flagrant violation of the principles of international law": https://mfa.gov.ua/en/press-center/comments/2211-zajava-mzs-ukrajini-u-z...

Recall now what Professor Cohen told us in his segment with John Batchelor 10 days ago...that the convoy had been sent off from Moscow with great fanfare. The Russian government even trotted out a few Orthodox bishops to sprinkle holy water on the trucks in the hopes of blessing them with safe passage. There can be no doubt that this send-off event was staged and orchestrated in order to bring the Russian population completely in line with the mission. https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/podcast/6021/latest-batchelor-cohen-ukrai...

Perhaps this will all work out fine. Perhaps the terrorized citizens of Lugansk and Donetsk will get some food, water and medicine and then the Russian convoy will withdraw. Perhaps Merkel will meet with Poroshenko tomorrow in Kiev and they'll have a wonderful time. Perhaps Poroshenko and Putin will then meet in Minsk next Tuesday and be seen laughing it up, fist-bumping and hugging. Let's hope so.

Perhaps, instead, this has all been designed as a false flag from the get go. Perhaps the convoy, full of Russian goods and driven by Russian citizens (soldiers?), will come under attack at some point this weekend. Perhaps the Ukraine militia, which we already know are only loosely controlled by Kiev, will read the official statement from the Ukraine Foreign Ministry and decide to take matters into their own hands. After all, they're supposedly defending Mother Ukraine, right? Do you not think they consider their mandate an obligation to defend Ukraine from " illegal and aggressive acts of the Russian Federation"?

The full text of the Ukraine statement is below. I've added bold and italic emphasis to the sections that seem the most relevant. Please pay extra close attention to the headlines and your twitter feed today and this weekend. As you know, I've been following these events very closely since February and everything tells me that the situation is about to make a dramatic escalation. For once I hope...and pray...that I'm wrong.

Statement of the MFA of Ukraine in connection with illegal crossing of the state border of Ukraine by the Russian convoy

Today, 13:21
On August, 22 Russia began smuggling humanitarian aid to Ukraine, ignoring established international rules, procedures and agreements, without the consent and escort of the International Committee of the Red Cross.
Although the border and customs services of Ukraine have already started clearance of the Russian convoy, in the morning Ukrainian officials were blocked by the Russian forces and detached from the inspection of the rest of the trucks in the column, despite previous agreements and the fact that they had been invited to the territory of Russia. We are concerned about the safety of our employees. Moreover, deep concern is raised because so far neither Ukrainian side nor the ICRC are aware of the content of the cargo.
The fact that Russian trucks entered the territory of Ukraine without proper border and customs procedures and that the cargo was not donated to the representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross indicates deliberate and aggressive nature of Russia’s actions.
As we have previously emphasized the Russian side is fully responsible for the safety of the cargo. It is important to note that the Ukraine has already taken all necessary measures to ensure the security of the cargo.
In order to prevent any provocations we have issued all necessary instructions for the safe passing of the convoy. Despite all attempts by the Ukrainian side the contact between the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the one of Russia, has not been established, which is critical to ensure security along the route. We point out that terrorists carry out mortar attacks along the possible route of the cargo.
We also are not aware of the content of the agreements of the Russian side with Luhansk insurgents and we do not exclude the possibility of any planned provocation.
We consider this act to be another flagrant violation of the fundamental principles of international law, including inviolability of borders, non-interference in the internal affairs of another state and bona fide fulfillment of international obligations by the Russian Federation.
We call on all international partners to join the strong condemnation of illegal and aggressive acts of the Russian Federation.

"The dollar is going to be

"The dollar is going to be around for a long time to be sure" Not my words, the words of Jim Willie.

He estimates that it's % of world trade will fall approximately 6% every 3 years which means that the premise outlined by the likes of Kirby that silver will rocket when the dollar sinks "very soon" is just hype to sell his product.

We are looking at another 5 years before we see anything really significant occur, save for an horrific war which may make the price plummet as we have seen before and if it doesn't, in a world war 3 scenario there is no crumb of comfort to be found in a metal rising in value.

You can't put perfume on the pig, there is not enough demand for the price of metals to rise dramatically. Capital would have to take flight into ETF's, into miners etc and that is clearly a cycle which is not on the horizon.

When the Dollar

When the Dollar Collapses

BY FMT STAFF ON AUGUST 20, 20142014 ARTICLES

Dear FutureMoneyTrends.com Member,

No fiat currency survives. This is true without exception, so if you believe the dollar will last forever, you will eventually be proven wrong. Spain, Netherlands, France, Britain and the U.S. have at one point in time during the last 5 centuries held the dominant currency; the currency used for trade and as a global medium of exchange.

The U.S. dollar rose up after World War II. As a currency convertible to gold, the dollar became King Dollar. In 1971, the U.S. announced a temporary pause to backing its currency with gold and went to a currency backed by the U.S. government. Today the world, for the first time, uses a medium of exchange that is purely faith-based, with no intrinsic value.

Headlines around the world are proving that the dollar is likely nearing its end. The King Dollar is shrinking as a percentage of the world’s currency supply. China, Russia, Brazil and India are coming out with new agreements almost every week announcing direct trade in their home currencies. More and more countries are willing to use other currencies to do business.

As a percentage of the world’s money supply, the U.S. has plunged from 90% in 1952 down to just 15% today. The road to complete destruction is pretty simple to understand. By having the world reserve currency, the U.S. is allowed to print money to service its debts. But what happens when interest rates rise and the U.S. is spending 40 to 50% of its income just to service the interest on our previous borrowing?

You can see why the FED will say and do anything to keep interest rates low. Bernanke recently said that he doesn’t see interest rates reaching normal levels (6%) again in his lifetime! That’s pretty significant, as Bernanke is only 61 years old. So what he is basically saying is that interest rates will remain low until around 2030 to the early 2040s. That is if everything works out like the FED and U.S. government need them to.

The reality is in Bernanke’s lifetime, the U.S. will lose its reserve status; either to another country or group of nations, or after a major reset of the global monetary system. The black swans, of course, are everywhere. From the U.S. backing its currency with oil to a major war breaking out — to be clear — a dollar collapse will not be a black and white event. The full outcome and how it will play out is impossible to predict.

A dollar collapse is also impossible to time, which is why I think you should be prepared for it now. This is so that when it does happen, it doesn’t catch you by surprise.

Here are some prudent actions you can take to prepare for the collapse of the U.S. dollar:

  • Own some physical hard assets like precious metals.
  • Become a landlord; owning my favorite cash flowing hard asset.
  • Pay off your home and become completely debt-free.
  • Stick with owning the best businesses in the world (see our Forever Stock Suggestions)
  • Diversify your cash holdings.
  • Avoid the 1980s portfolio model (U.S. mutual funds, bonds, & fixed Dollar denominated investments)
  • Prepare your household for the possibility of civil unrest.

There is certainly no reason to dwell on this or become obsessed with it, because we are literally talking about a global event that will change the entire monetary system.

When the Dollar Collapses - Ep. 35 Weekly Wealth Digest

66 countries according to the IMF have either adopted the dollar as legal tender, peg their currency to it or manage their exchange rate against it. This is 33% of the nations of the world all submitting their currency sovereignty to the U.S. Federal Reserve.

When the dollar does collapse, this will be a day that will be remembered for centuries.

Putin's New Clothes

Voice

Russia’s president is nakedly invading Ukraine. Why won’t anybody say anything?

Share +

2.8k Shares

On the night of Aug. 14, the Telegraph's Roland Oliphant and the Guardian's Shaun Walker both witnessed, as the latter put it, "a column of [armored personnel carriers] and vehicles with official Russian military plates cross [the] border into Ukraine." It's not that this was anything out of the ordinary: Russia has been moving all manner of materiel into Ukraine for weeks, as the Interpreter has documented, all under the watchful gaze of U.S. and NATO satellites -- thereby establishing a new normalcy for what does and does not constitute foreign aggression in a neighboring country.

It was, however, the first time any Western reporters had seen Russia sending armaments next door, and the way the hardware was transferred was also noteworthy. A convoy of at least 23 vehicles waited "until sunset near a refugee camp just outside Donetsk," Oliphant reported, "before moving towards the crossing without turning off headlights or making any other attempt to conceal itself."

Vladimir Putin now seems to be relying on the Eddie Murphy "wasn't me" excuse

Vladimir Putin now seems to be relying on the Eddie Murphy "wasn't me" excuse, no doubt with the understanding that having a bald-faced lie exposed by independent witnesses matters not when the rest of the world seems unwilling to do anything about it. NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen called the event a "Russian incursion" -- but not an outright "invasion" -- into Ukraine, proving once again that diplomatic euphemism is a handmaid to authoritarian propaganda. Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius elaborated that "70 pieces of military equipment" disappeared into Ukraine overnight, which no doubt added to the unknown number of pieces already in the hands of pro-Russian separatists -- though how many pieces are still intact remains unclear as of this writing. According to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, a "significant" portion of the Russian armored column that rolled in last night was shot up by Ukrainian artillery, apparently prompting Britain to summon the Russian ambassador in London. I don't care what Rasmussen will choose to call this: The word for it is war.

Note how well-scripted the entire convoy farce has been thus far. I wrote earlier this week that these white trucks, which at one point were flying Red Cross flags, were going to furnish a pretext for some kind of border skirmish or provocation that would allow Russia to declare that it had no other choice but to attack Ukraine.

Probably because they had nothing better to do, Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB) issued a pro forma denial and claimed that, quite the opposite, owing to ongoing shelling from Ukraine, Russian FSB units -- presumably backed up by armored personnel carriers and trucks -- were beefing up on their side of the border. This was all necessary and proper, you see, in order to protect against what an FSB spokesperson called "the infiltration of armed people into Russian territory."

But back to last night's adventures. Oliphant and Walker were at the border covering the much-discussed convoy of around 280 white-painted Kamaz military trucks which, after changing routes and destination points, finally alighted in Kamensk-Shakhtinsky in the Rostov region of Russia, from which they intend to enter Ukraine via the Izvarino border crossing. This is not where Ukraine expected to receive the convoy (it had troops waiting in Kharkiv), nor is it under Ukrainian control any longer. Izvarino was used by Russia to transport the Buk anti-aircraft missile system with which separatists are said to have shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 last month.

Moscow insists that this is a purely "humanitarian" convoy, coordinated with both Kiev and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). The truck crews evidently offered to display their wares to curious journalists; photos of flatbeds full with grain, water, and the like have circulated online -- although a lot of the trucks appeared to be almost empty. Meanwhile, the ICRC, which successfully handled the delivery of Ukrainian humanitarian aid to Lugansk today, tweeted that Kiev and Moscow must "agree on inspection and clearance procedures and confirm strictly humanitarian nature of cargo." Yet news reports have suggested that the relief organization may have worked out a deal whereby the trucks will first be inspected by Ukrainian border guards and customs officials, and then driven in by a single Russian per vehicle who will be accompanied by an ICRC employee. (That said, we still don't know who's actually behind the wheels of these trucks, civilians or dressed-down soldiers.)

Also, in accordance with ICRC policy, Laurent Corbaz, the director of operations in Europe, saidthat there is to beno Russian military escort.

Which is probably agreeable to the Kremlin because the escort has gotten a head start on the aid anyway. Yesterday, nine Russian tanks were recorded rolling along the H21 highway in Donetsk, deep inside separatist-held Ukraine. Moreover, helicopters, military vehicles (some of them marked with the emblem of "peacekeeping forces"), self-propelled guns, the 9K22 Tunguska anti-aircraft system, and what looks to be radar components for more advanced surface-to-air weapons (such as the Buk), were all identified by journalists and plenty of Russian observers moving alongside or above the aid convoy while it rolled from Moscow to the border. The Estonian newspaper Postimees also published photographs of Russian BMD-2s lining up along the M4 highway, about 6 miles from the Izvarino border crossing. This is the infantry fighting vehicle used to great effect by the Russian Airborne forces (VDV) -- camouflaged as the now-infamous "little green men" -- in the March seizure of Crimea.

By now, Putin isn't even trying to make his motives difficult to discern. Without telling anyone, he sent a convoy said to be loaded with baby food, sleeping bags, and grain to the Ukrainian border. Then he dispatched dozens of military vehicles across that border to heighten tensions or lay the groundwork for some kind of confrontation.

The second act of this stage play was never much of a cliffhanger:

Now Putin is saying that his peaceful, humanitarian relief efforts are being hampered by wanton and outrageous acts of violence by the fascist junta in Kiev.

Now Putin is saying that his peaceful, humanitarian relief efforts are being hampered by wanton and outrageous acts of violence by the fascist junta in Kiev. The Russian Foreign Ministry statement: "We draw attention to the sharp intensification of military action by Ukrainian forces with the apparent aim to stop the path, agreed on with Kiev, of a humanitarian convoy across the Russia-Ukraine border." And here's the Kremlin propaganda mouthpiece RT with a headline that helpfully offers an ex post facto justification for Russian invasion under the masquerade of news: "BREAKING: Aid convoy to Ukraine faces disruption, may be attacked -- Russia."

So why all this now? Well, the separatists have been getting battered in the last few weeks, losing much of the ground they had carved out for their prospective "Novorossiya," a restored empire on the basis of ingathered Russian lands. (And where they have been winning, it's been directly correlated to evidence of renewed Russian resupplies of weaponry.) There has also been much plotting and politicking within the separatist leadership of late, which could just be business as usual for an inscrutable and self-cannibalizing movement, or signs that a Soviet-style purge is underway at the behest of Moscow Center.

Yesterday, for instance, Col. Igor Strelkov, the Russian military intelligence official-cum-"Defense Minister" of the self-proclaimed People's Republic of Donetsk (DPR), who had earlier in the week been reported seriously wounded in battle by Russian state media -- which was then denied by separatist channels -- resigned from his position. Or rather, Alexander Borodai, the now ex-prime minister of the DPR, informed LifeNews, a TV station linked to Russian intelligence, that Strelkov was "fine" but was being replaced with a new defense minister who happens to be nicknamed "Tsar." It later emerged that Tsar's real name is Vladimir Kononov, who's an ethnic Russian from Lugansk who's been fighting against Kiev since April.Borodai himself had been replaced days ago with Alexander Zakharchenko, a native of the Donbass region, yet still retains the title of "vice premier" of the DPR. Not that Strelkov was entirely removed from the ranks. He has now been put forward as a candidate for chief of the DPR's general staff, a position the DPR "Supreme Council" must vote on.

What's noteworthy about these portfolio swaps in the separatist government is that the two biggest demotions have affected those with ties to the ultra-religious Orthodox Russian billionaire Konstantin Malofeev, who was recently sanctioned by the European Union and Canada (but not the United States) for his role in financing the insurgency.

Malofeev is the founder of private equity firm Marshall Capital and a major proponent of holy war to conquer Ukraine; he has credited Russia's annexation of Crimea as "God's will" and blamed Kiev and Washington for the MH17 destruction. But more famously, he also once employed Borodai as his public relations consultant, as Malofeev freely admits. There have also been rumors that he employed Strelkov as his former head of security at Marshall Capital, a claim Malofeev denied to Russian Forbes, claiming that there is no security detail at the investment company to begin with. Independent Russian journalist Oleg Kashin also doesn't believe that this employment story withstands scrutiny and points out that the rumor got started after an anonymous party hacked and leaked a tranche of Strelkov's personal emails, one of them showing him boasting of his supposed affiliation to the billionaire. Strelkov's penchant for self-dramatization precedes him: He is, after all, a historical war re-enactor.

But what may be more credible evidence of a direct link to Malofeev is that, according to intercepts released by Ukraine's Security Service (SBU), Strelkov informed one "Konstantin Valerievich" (the second is Malofeev's patronymic) about an ambush attack on "three VIP cars" in the early phase of the insurgency, and the Konstantin caller identified the main victim as the head of the Ukrainian antiterrorist center.

As I reported earlier, owing to tensions between and among different separatist factions -- and also how these tensions were being manifest among ultranationalist invasion proponents inside Russia -- there was every indication the founding fathers of irredentism in Ukraine were cruising for a bruising. If Putin had been looking to professionalize or nativize his proxies, then the MH17 fiasco would have made clear the urgency of doing so.Again, it bears mentioning that Zakharchenko and Kononov are Ukrainian; Borodai and Strelkov are Russian.

So the foreigners have now retired (or been retired), just as Russia nakedly dispatches columns of armored vehicles into Ukraine, and stages a piece of pseudo-humanitarian theater to legitimate a more open form of warfare. This is win-win for Putin: If Ukraine declares war on Russia, he gets to ride in to save his faltering rebellion. If it doesn't, he keeps waging deniable "incursions" to send the rebels heavy machinery.

There's a Russian chess term that explains what's happening: mnogohodovka. It means making multiple moves at once. As ever, Putin is counting on his enemies not realizing this, and being multiple moves behind him.

Here we go the US denial that it was an invasion

In Washington, a Pentagon spokesman, Rear Adm. John Kirby, stopped short of calling the movement an invasion but said “it strains credulity to think that this equipment’s not moving across the border accompanied by Russian forces.

”Kirby called on Russia to withdraw vehicles and personnel and threatened “additional costs and isolation” otherwise. That is a reference to potential further economic sanctions on Russia and diplomatic ostracizing of Moscow, tactics the West has applied for months with little success.

The ICRC said the convoy was delayed because of its concern for the safety of its workers in rebel-held areas.

https://tinyurl.com/mrrbpfb

So let me get this straight someone runs a 200 plus unescorted un inspected convoy of trucks into a military conflict zone and its not an act of war but a guy branding a knife after stealing 2 cokes and a donut is an act punishable by death??????????

The US is one ass backwards fucked up country with its priorities based on the whims of the 1%

The Significance of Russia’s Decision to Move ...

A rather interesting perspective on the subject:

https://www.globalresearch.ca/the-significance-of-the-russias-decision-to-move-the-humanitarian-convoy-into-novorossiya/5397202

The Significance of Russia’s Decision to Move the Humanitarian Convoy into Novorossiya

It appears that the Russians got tired of waiting. I suggest that you all carefully parse the Statement of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs I posted earlier today. This is an interesting document because besides an explanation of the Russian decision to move it, it is also, potentially, a legal defense or an unprecedented Russian decision: to overtly violate the Ukrainian sovereignty. Let me explain.

[...]

The US and their main agent in Kiev, Nalivaichenko, immediately and correctly understood the threat: not only did this convoy bring much needed humanitarian aid to Lugansk, it also provided a fantastic political and legal “cover” for future Russian actions inside Novorussia. And by “actions” I don’t necessarily mean military actions, although that is now clearly and officially possible. I also mean legal actions such as recognizing Novorussia. From their point of view, Obama, Poroshenko, Nalivaichenko are absolutely correct to be enraged, because I bet you that the timing, context and manner in which Russia moved into Novorussia will not result in further sanctions or political consequences. Russia has now officially declared the Ukie national sovereignty as “over” and the EU will probably not do anything meaningful about it.

That, by itself, is a nightmare for Uncle Sam.

[...]

Bottom line: this is a risky move no doubt, probably brought about by the realization that with water running out in Luganks Putin had to act. Still it is also an absolutely brilliant move which will create a massive headache for the US and its Nazi puppets in Kiev.
