If Russia, China Don't Disengage from the Western System, the WW III INEVITABLE

World War III Has Begun

The Third World War is currently being fought. How long before it moves into its hot stage?

Washington is currently conducting economic and propaganda warfare against four members of the five bloc group of countries known as BRICS—Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa. Brazil and South Africa are being destabilized with fabricated political scandals.

Both countries are rife with Washington-financed politicians and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs). Washington concocts a scandal, sends its political agents into action demanding action against the government and its NGOs into the streets in protests.

Washington tried this against China with the orchestrated Hong Kong “student protest.” Washington hoped that the protest would spread into China, but the scheme failed.

Washington tried this against Russia with the orchestrated protests against Putin’s reelection and failed again.

To destablilze Russia, Washington needs a firmer hold inside Russia. In order to gain a firmer hold, Washington worked with the New York mega-banks and the Saudis to drive down the oil price from over $100 per barrel to $30.

This has put pressure on Russian finances and the ruble. In response to Russia’s budgetary needs, Washington’s allies inside Russia are pushing President Putin to privatize important Russian economic sectors in order to raise foreign capital to cover the budget deficit and support the ruble.

If Putin gives in, important Russian assets will move from Russian control to Washington’s control.

In my opinion, those who are pushing privatization are either traitors or completely stupid. Whichever it is, they are a danger to Russia’s independence.

As I have often pointed out, the neoconservatives have been driven insane by their arrogance and hubris. In their pursuit of American hegemony over the world, they have cast aside all caution in their determination to destabilize Russia and China.

By implementing neoliberal economic policies urged on them by their economists trained in the Western neoliberal tradition, the Russian and Chinese governments are setting themselves up for Washington.

By swallowing the “globalism” line, using the US dollar, participating in the Western payments system, opening themselves to destabilization by foreign capital inflows and outflows, hosting American banks, and permitting foreign ownership, the Russian and Chinese governments have made themselves ripe for destabilization.

If Russia and China Don’t Disengage from the Western System and exile their neoliberal economists, they will have to go to war in order to defend their sovereignty.

  1. Russia can enrich its internal economy even while Oil exports are hurting.

    Taking a page from the Pennsylvania Colony in 1721. The Treasury can set up a National Treasury Bank as its central bank. It can print rubles interest free to fund National Treasury Bank Branches in every township in the country. These branches provide low interest loans to the region small businesses, and farms. Loans at low interest should be achievable, especially since the ruble is backed by gold to cover its M1 requirement.Loan payments go directly into the Treasury to control inflation and begin creating excess reserves for social and infrastructure support. The branches do not need to collect loan payments because they are simply conduits for providing loans to the local community. This doesn’t prevent private bank lending, but it offers a way to lend to local regions and ensures that loan payments return to the Treasury and are not captured in private banks.

    The country can simply print the currency needed to stimulate businesses, farms and employment and then control inflation by extracting loan payments and taxation on new capital. Concentrate on enriching the internal economy and wait for oil to stabilize. There is no need for privatization and there should be no need to seek loans in other currencies.Oil is an export issue, but a country can enrich itself, internally especially with the Ruble backed by gold.

  2. Current Geopolitical SITUATION , Based on the Historic FACT , of the Artificial Western INTEGRATION of two “Incompatible SYSTEMS” , Namely the “ANGLO – AMERICAN Monarchic ARISTOCRACIES” , still Treating their “INHABITANTS” as “SUBJECTS / WORKFORCE / Serfs” , and Central- & East – EUROPEAN DEMOCRACIES , Where “SERFDOM was Ended” , by their “Ruling MONARCHS” in the “19. CENTURY” ! The Prolonged “British , Now Shamefully “Constitutional” Named “Hard – Core MONARCHY” , Started it’s “WAR of SUBJECTION” , Especially Against “The EAST” , Actually “Unifying HUMANITY” !

  3. “Donald Trump Foreign Policy Speech – ‘Who’s Advising This Guy?’

    There is absolutely NO chance for the US to leave its wicked ways with people like Trump and Clinton (fucking biggest peace of shit on the planet) and all the other stupid fucking whores that run the place, what a fucking abortion of a country, what a fucking facade for a democracy!
    Though what would you expect coming from the biggest exporter of porn, dishonesty greed and filth upon this earth?

    It would therefore be advisable to remove this parasite upon our earth before THEY remove us! My support therefore goes to the first country that destroys the USA!!

  4. As it Now turns out , A thorough “REVIEW” of the ‘Bubbled Up’ , in English Defined “Absolute Monarchic SYSTEM” of ‘Ruling ROYALS’ & ‘Ruled , Voiceless ASSETS / Inhabitants / SERFS’ , SIMPLY is “INCOMPATIBLE” With the ‘Age – Old , CULTIVATED “IDEA” , of “FREEDOM , TRUTH & JUSTICE” , Which Forcefully Spreads around the “WORLD” !!!
