There have been some shake-ups in the Kremlin lately, and Mr. Putin appears to be willing to "gamble" in order to get Russia's stagnant economy rolling again:

    Documentary about Solovki Island Monastery and Prison (English subs)

    Te very sad thing is that so many of the populous will fight for these vile parasites thinking that dying for freedom and welfare is paramount because the enemy is robbing us blind.

    I was brought up by parents who hook line and sinker bought that line and watched all those post war movies presenting one hero after the other.

    Waking up that the world is not dualistic was a start but reality bites are nasty. Excepting people around me as they are and do my own due diligence morally and building my own self with tiny bricks is what is hard.

    Japanese tidbit: a 1-minute ad on Japan-Africa collaboration on rice growing put out on the web by the prime minister’s office. A brief flash of the rice expert dressed in a sort of uniform with certain historical connotations…

      dana, little help? what connotations? btw, that was hybrid, not gmo, right?

    This comment isnt about this article, I’m reading Gisa 2 and just saw this quote on page 178 : (which I hope Dr Farrel doesnt mind me copying here, its a quote from Mr Beardens book)
    “If two weak monochromatic (electromagnetic) waves are run together 180 degrees out of phase, and run through a nonlinear medium so that they modulate each other and lock together, they
    make a strange “scalar (electromagnetic) wave” that is an electrogravitational wave of pure potential, and one that you are controlling. Such a wave goes down through the electron shells of
    the atom, and is absorbed in the nucleus. If you choose the right mix of waves in the scalar wave, and just keep irradiating the nuclei with that “pattern,” the nuclei will gradually rearrange
    themselves. For example, they will be transmuted into another element, given the proper signal mix.”

    Didnt the Russians proclaim recently that they can now change any element to another? Is this perhaps the method that they applied and if so, does this implicate that the Russians have (or are building) their own version of the Pyramid ‘machine’?

      This explains so much in regards to the control of energy and all the accompanying distractions and disinformation being put forth by the so called “elites” in every way, shape and form to maintain their control; from a broken education system to liberalism etc. There’s a vidchat question in here somewhere…

      This was meant to be a reply to GW.

    We can see Mr Glazyev on the begining of this video. It’s maybe what the decarbonization is all about. English subs seems to be OK.

    I worked (indirectly) for a state employment agency for a year during the Great Recession. I talked with the staff and got a real feel for their non-publicized views on things…

    One of the major unstated themes was workforces. It was a matter of scale. It turned out that you could drop the entire US workforce’s jobs into the workforces of China or India and not generate a ripple. Put another way – in the internet age – without protectionism of some sort, everything not involving worksite ‘touch labor’ would leave US shores and not come back. Ever. They were terrified.

    This is the elephant in the room that the globalist elite do not want Western (particularly the US) populations to cogitate-on. No financial borders, and you are competing with cowed, semi-slave-labor masses. Big masses. Job-at-any-price masses. A great sucking sound, and you are on your way to becoming a third world country. Serfs and nobles. No middle class. Cogitate on that, again.

    I believe Putin & Co. have looked at the above. They are staring-down the same gun barrels. If you give the globalist elite free-rein (reign?), that’s where Russia will end up. Nobles (oligarchs) and serfs. I believe Russia’s past (both Orthodox Christianity and Communism) make that ‘solution’ unthinkable.

    So, Russian leaders have embarked on a way to impose barriers to globalist-sloshing (i.e., the poorhouse), while not becoming totally isolationist. The Stolypin economist group, or Club, is the result. Kudos, and best wishes. The West (and particularly the US) may need your guidance…

      how and where to emigrate to. some of our ancestors did it from ireland in the 1800’s. is it time for us to do the same? back to ireland? iceland? north dakota?

      • goshawks on August 19, 2016 at 3:15 am

        ZDB, we will always be at risk, no matter where we are, if we exist under the present globalist/corporatist system. You could move anywhere and have the rug pulled out from under the local economy. This happens because the liquidity-flow is ‘above’ the nation states. Independent. It is engineered to be that way…

        The irony is that this situation could be a force for good. If the purpose was beneficial, rather than predatory, one could ‘slosh’ capital into any needy area, independent of local obstacles. Hey, globalists/corporatists: Want to be a force for good?

        • zendogbreath on August 20, 2016 at 10:33 pm

          word g.

          irony is it’s more profitable in the long run to do that

    Looks like Putin is building up his nation economy while the West is looting it’s own. Just wondering in what dreamland do our oligarchs believe they’re living in it’s certainly not the real World.

    “Could Trump Pull Off a Post-Party Coalition?”

    Pepe Escobar

    As Trump’s backers outline it, “the Pacific Ocean cannot be used for transporting the vital and essential components of our military industrial complex, for in the event of war with Russia or China their advanced silent submarines equipped with advanced anti-ship weapons will block all of our ocean transport, collapsing our military industrial production in any war with catastrophic consequences. These component factories for Intel and others must be repatriated at once through currency adjustments or tariffs.”

    So Trump should hammer the message that all new bank credit must be tied to rebuilding destroyed US industries, “either by ending currency rigging or applying tariffs.” Bank credit, Trump backers argue, “should not be used for currency manipulation, or for cash settlement market rigging. There should be no bank credit for speculation and absolutely none for hedge funds. Let’s wipe these speculative vehicles out by huge taxes on short-term trading profits, ending tax concessions on borrowing, and ending all bank credit for speculation. Let these people go to do real work.”

    That, in a nutshell, explains Wall Street’s visceral aversion to Trump

    . . .

    This all implies Trump should become well versed in the national economy ideas of Friedrich List — whose tariff-protected Zollverein League was essentially the founding method of Prussia to build the German nation.

    “LIST VS. VON HAYEK: Free-Trade Monetarism Is the Road to Serfdom”

    List writes:

    Anywhere, anytime, when the intelligence, morality, and activity of the citizenry have stood in the same proportion with the prosperity of the nation, the wealth, along with these characteristics, has increased or decreased; but nowhere have the industriousness and thrift, inventiveness and initiative of individuals achieved anything significant where they have not been supported by civil liberty, public institutions, and laws, by means of the state administration and foreign policy, primarily through the unity and power of the nation.

    List’s tariff policy followed this insight.

    The fact that this was correctly understood in Prussia by Chancellor von Bismarck and an extensive circle around him, who eventually saw through the fraud of the free-trade doctrine and took corresponding countermeasures, vexes the supporters of free trade to this day.

    Industrialist and Bismarck advisor Wilhelm von Kardorff, first president and founder of the Central Association of German Industry, gave vent to his anger that he had been taken in by the hoax of free trade, and wrote a book about it, Gegen den Strom (Against the Current.)

    In May 1879, Bismarck announced the end of his free trade policy to the Reichstag, with these words:

    We were, up to this point, the dumping ground for the surplus production of other countries, because of our open door policy. In my view, this wrecked the prices in Germany. It has prevented the growth of our industries and the development of our economic life. We must close this door, and erect a higher barrier. And what I now propose is that we create for German industry the same market that we up to now have benevolently allowed foreigners to exploit. If the risks of protectionism are as great as is claimed by the adherents of free trade, then France would been impoverished long ago, because they have gone with this theory since the time of Colbert.

    Bismarck understood that the free-trade doctrine serves not the freedom of Germany’s economy, but quite the contrary, its subjugation; and that only by applying constraints to that same economy could he restore the freedom that Germans so desperately needed for their development. This apparent paradox was the basis for the insight that all activities that produce value must be protected and encouraged at the state level, while harmful sources of profit must be minimized in the long run.

    The Vienna School does not draw this distinction.

    See also:


    And with regard to bringing Russia’s econ/finance agencies under the aegis of the president:

    The Russian Constitution, Chapter 3, Article 75 (, establishes that the Central Bank shall fulfill its responsibilities independent of other state authorities. Chapter 9, Article 136 establishes that amendments to Chapters 3 and 6 require approval of legislative bodies that represent two-thirds of the subjects of the Russian Federation after adoption as a “federal constitutional law” (Chapter 5, Article 108) by three-fourths of the Council of the Federation (members defined: Chapter 5, Article 95 (2)) and two-thirds of the members of the State Duma (members defined: Chapter 5, Article 95 (3)). Got that? This is constitutional stuff and making it happen requires real day-to-day consensus building.
    There are many people who object to the way that the Russian Central Bank has conducted itself during the sanctions regime imposed on Russia and who want a central bank that is more responsive to the president of the Russian Federation and his executive team. Those who advocate subordination of the Russian Central Bank to and all Russian economic policy formally under the office of the president ( see: Engdahl: Russia’s Achilles Heel – Reflections from St. Petersburg) rather than under the prime minister (the Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation (Chapter 6, Articles 111 & 112)) face the need to amend the Russian Federal Constitution. That requires concerted political action at the local and regional levels to ensure that candidates sympathetic to such changes get elected to the Duma.

      Thank you David G,

      I was unaware of Bismark and the free trade comments.

    My comment went to the holding moderation cell.

    Still, I loved this News & Views as it expresses two views of authors I read with vigor & enjoyment/ Engdahl & Farrell.

      Putin puts the crosshairs on the globalist Nazis.

  10. Robert Barricklow on August 18, 2016 at 7:54 pm

    Throughout history the wealthiest families have seeded economical and political institutions of leaders to defend their interests, typically using private banks as their center of power. Two types of banks vied against each other: extractive Anglo-Dutch-American w/collateral-based lending against existing real estate and orders-on-hand versus Productive long-term credit to fund tangible capital formation and infrastructure{public Banking].
    Russia is crossing swords with the predatory, life-sucking globalist fighting against the political legacy of feudal privileges to enclose the commons and privatize the public infrastructure.
