RUSSIA, BULLION, GLAZYEV, AND GEOPOLITICS

There is so much news piling up these days it's difficult for those of us in this alternative media/world-watching business to keep up, and of course much of it currently  concerns the Ukraine, Russia, and what sort of world might be emerging.

Well, consider this: if you've been watching states of the USSA passing laws removing sales taxes on bullion purchases, then it might interest you to know that the Russian State Duma just recently passed a bill that removed the Value Added Tax (VAT) - a rough analogue to an American sales tax - on bullion in that country. (See, for example, https://www.txtreport.com/news/2022-03-04-vat-on-the-purchase-of-bullion-of-precious-metals-in-russia.S1Nx3dJbc.html).

Most people agree that it's a necessary step toward using bullion as a medium of exchange, as money.  IN fact, it's the logical end result of policies that were advocated by Sergei Glazyev... Remember him? He who said "our problem isn't the Nazis in Kiev, but the Nazis in Washington"?

Yea... that guy.

Well, according to this article at The Saker, he (Mr. Glazyev) is back:

How Russia Will Counterpunch the U.S./EU Declaration of War

Glazyev reveals in a recent essay what might and in my opinion probably is going on with the Duma's repeal of Value Added Taxes on bullion:

Glaziev, predictably detested across Atlanticist circles, was a key economic adviser to President Putin and is now the Minister for Integration and Macroeconomics of the Eurasia Economic Union (EAEU). He has always been a fierce critic of the Russian Central Bank and the oligarch gang closely linked to Anglo-American finance.

His latest essay, Sanctions and Sovereignty, originally published by expert.ru and translated by Helmer, deserves serious scrutiny.

This is one of the key takeaways:

“Russian losses of potential GDP, since 2014, amount to about 50 trillion rubles. But only 10% of them can be explained by sanctions, while 80% of them were the result of monetary policy. The United States benefits from anti-Russian sanctions, replacing the export of Russian hydrocarbons to the EU as well as China; replacing the import of European goods by Russia. We could completely offset the negative consequences of financial sanctions if the Bank of Russia fulfilled its constitutional duty to ensure a stable ruble exchange rate, and not the recommendations of Washington financial organizations.”

Glaziev essentially recommends:– A “real de-offshorization of the economy”.

– “Measures to tighten currency regulation in order to stop the export of capital and expand targeted lending to enterprises in need of financing investments”.

– “Taxation of currency speculation and transactions in dollars and euros on the domestic market”.

– “Serious investment in R&D in order to accelerate the development of our own technological base in the areas affected by sanctions – first of all the defense industry, energy, transport and communications.”

And last but not least, “the de-dollarization of our foreign exchange reserves, replacing the dollar, euro and pound with gold.”

If you've been following Russian and Chinese gold purchases the past few years, you'll recognize the Glazyevian strategy in play as a means of outflanking American sanctions regimes, which the article subsequently calls - citing Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov - a "tax on independence."

And the financial aspect is just one aspect of the underlying conflict of visions playing out there. Do not forget that the West made the Ukraine its GMO breadbasket and "persuaded" that country to approve of GMOs, and to grant special port privileges on the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to Mon(ster)santo and other big agribusiness concerns (could that be the reason for Bayer's otherwise inexplicable purchase of that blighted company?); meanwhile, Russia said a firm Nyet to GMOs, and (re-)annexed the Crimea.  There's also an ecclesiastical aspect to all of this, as well as a long a murky history on both sides.

But it is this underlying financial aspect - the "Glazyevian strategy" - that is my focus for today's high octane speculation.

This "Glazyevian strategy" has a rather intriguing set of high octane speculative implications if one ponders it long enough, not the least of which is that not only are Russia and some American states - Mississippi and Oklahoma for example - thinking exactly alike, but that their efforts are inextricably coupled, and the implication of that is that if Russia is successful, and leads the BRICS nations out of dollar dependency and manages to stabilize the ruble on bullion, then to trade with that bloc, one needs a similar system, in place and ready to go, here, because the North American economy is no longer anywhere close to autarchy and able to survive on merely continental trade.  It could survive on that trade, but Mr. Globaloney so entangled it and messed it up offshoring everything that a continental autarchy would take years to restore. Therefore, for Mr. Globaloney, the Russian-Glazyevian strategy also means that it must be fought, tooth and nail, wherever it raises its ugly head... and it appears that Mr. Globaloney and his lackey central banksters would rather fight in the Ukraine and to the last drop of Ukrainian blood, than in the USA, but make no mistake, Russia and those American states are linked, and will be the subject of relentless propaganda.  Fighting the battle in the Ukraine rather than here serves as a convenient distraction from their failures domestically, and the "rape of Russia" game, which the west has been playing in the Ukraine, can continue there.  In a way, one is reminded of Lord  Milner's kindergarten, and the anxiety of the British oligarchs at the turn of the last century over the rise of the German Empire, and their determination to end it by fighting... to the last drop of French and Russian blood...

And here's the kicker, ultimately, they're still going to lose after more than a century of slithering gyrations...

Why? Because more and more are alive to the money monopoly - to the welfare/warfare model, as Catherine Fitts has called it - of central banking.

...see you on the flip side...

    In one’s view, it seems like more of a menagerie in monetary monotony form, for power & people control using that shiny stuff to woo-oo-oo the tribal greed for it. As if merely mechanical manipulation through distraction that thwarts worldly energy flow. It seems to beckon a chosen few to hoard it to later be atomized unbeknown to the same hoarding few not knowing the true value of its monatomic gold cousin as it continues to be used to control people, places, and things. Platinum plated meters, utilities, gas pumps / electric charge stations (if not a one-in-every-household type), 24/7 delivery from online ordering, and on and on, seems a ways off at the moment as territories continue to be fought over by the pragmatic in charge.

    In order to flourish in a corporeal form, one needs energy of many levels to exist, produce, and be formulated so that the biological form, upright-simian-type in this case, can use it. Never mind the glitter and shine from afar. There’s no un-pragmatic means around that, not even by a solemn decree by any sovereign wan-nah-bee. Essentially, . . . oh sovereign, come up with the necessities or get run out of office within your surrounded palace, . . . . kind of thing. There were those who used the Guillotine once, of course, but that’s a bit messy.

    An ephemeral transition through frequency rather than brick’n’mortar banking facilities (electronic, too), tradable assets, and hard tangible assets could be thought of as an inappropriate use of gold, especially, where anything Ancient, “ecclesiastical,” and spiritual might be concerned. This stuff is not likely a transition from a fringe perspective. Just a paint job for the wealthier few who can easily hire out their difficulties. Gold could even be considered an abomination by those beyond this greed enhancing element plain of existence. It does not seem likely that eternity has a westing-house meter from the Giza Plateau attached for ascertaining & collecting fees. Doubtful that an army of Shabti dolls would convince Anubis or Osiris that the holder of the gold is pure to the bone.

    The folks out of Moscow might know a thing or two about how to stir up a mess and bulldoze it somewhere else, but so do a few others taking tips from that red book & square. It almost comes down to, ‘Who’s the cleverest opportunist and first to succeed.’ They’ll deal with the niceties later when the tribal folk are more amenable to agreements out of necessity. From ink-stained papers to the glittering sparkle of a metallic kind it will still need petrol to cart it around for now. You know, the heavy lifting that’s still needed to convince anyone that this monetary gloss-over will work.. The dragon will wait a little longer.

      Alchemical gold does involve cycle of year, gathering spring dew, by barefoot run in the green, chasing nymphs.

      Alchemical tribal marriages are seductive, and June brides enter fruition, at peak of sun. That brings the stork, at spring equinox.

      There is no “tribal greed”, in the fertility rites of the Saxon tribes, who welcome Yahweh as year, the ruler of seasons.

      Welcome wishes well come.

    Heads I win, Tails you lose.
    Nato expansion, murderously wrecking various small countries, propaganda campaigns pretending Putin/Russia is evil, blah, blah blah.

    It’s all part of a long term campaign to destroy governments and gain control of natural resources for the purposes of wealth accumulation, and international power politics.

    Fomenting anti-Russian movements in Ukraine put the “evil” Putin/Russia in the position of losing a critical naval installation Russia has had for 200 years, or seizing Crimea and looking like ruthless invaders – dangerous to Europe, criminal and dangerous to the WHOLE WORLD even….

    Getting the puppet president of Ukraine to state that he needed nuclear weapons to protect himself from the “evil” Putin/Russia, to a meeting of Schwabian puppets pretending to be European leaders, well……

    Talk about pulling a trigger to get “Vlad the Invader” to either face a nuclear armed corrpted Atlanticist-Nato puppet state on its border, or to look like a criminal state actor that must be economically cut-off immediately, and to be armed against…….. well…

    This conflict with Russia was likely started intentionally in my opinion. Not only do they want to weaken Russia and divert attention away from the biggest crime against humanity ever committed in human history by them, but they want to drive up the cost of fossil fuels so they can push electric vehicles. If you can’t afford one then in their view that’s good pecause they also seem to want to do away with our ability to travel. If it drives up the cost of food and other stuff and shuts down the economy making the masses hungry and homeless then that will be good to herd everyone into the Great Reset scheme. This smells like it was set up by the same people who set up 911 and the bioweapons release. Their stench can’t be mistaken in all this.



    • InfiniteRUs on March 8, 2022 at 8:58 am

      The above is a best case scenario though. What I suspect they are really pushing for is getting Russia to nuke the US. Remember Obama said we wouldn’t strike back for the world’s sake if we were hit first? But the above will still be a goal for the rest of the world that isn’t hit. Because if they are goaded to hit the US they will also have to hit Europe. The southern hemisphere will be where the New Jerusalem is built until the original is safe to rebuild bigger and better than ever in a hundred years.

        Europe is ancient Israel, literally, because the ten tribes of Scythia, poured into Europe as Saxons. “New” Jerusalem was resettled in Britain, in the 1st century AD.

        Nothing has changed in four millennia, and Moloch is just another name for communism. Moloch seeks to devour Russia.

        Moloch is papacy, seeking to destroy ancient Israel in Europe, by proxy of brainwashed Europeans in America.

    After 1917, Russian gold was heisted, by communist criminals, who were financed by Wall Street, and the stolen gold was melted in Sweden.

    The heist was carried out, by Bank Jews, Court Jews and Revolutionary Jews. It was a gold conspiracy. Removing the gold standard is also a heist.

    Today, descendants of perpetrators seek to repeat the gold heist. But it ain’t gonna fly. Because royal Jesuit kingpins are on record pushing poison:

    Brookings is doing a fairly good job of explaining the present economic warfare:

    “China has been developing its own CIPS system as an alternative to SWIFT. Cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology offer banks ways to move payments without using dollars or SWIFT. The very success of the weaponization of the legacy financial system by the United States and its allies may drive Russia and others into an alternative, decentralized mode of finance that by its very nature will resist control by any government.
    Like any form of war, its financial variant is a terrible thing to behold. The consequences for average Russians and likely many others around the world will be painful, although obviously not as much so as the munitions raining down upon Ukrainians.” From Brookings.edu.

    China appears neutral but will benefit both financially and from an agricultural perspective (chernozem) if the Ukraine is pulled out from the grasp of the EU. It will be interesting to see how London and the EU will try to avoid the loss.

    Globalization is coming home to bite Mr. Globalbaloney in the ____!
    More than one can play the globalization game!

    Now it comes down to; not only which version of globalization takes root.
    The Nation States and/or independent States are reestablishing their own sovereign currency controls; whether in bullion, local currencies, and/or combinations thereof.

    Loose the globalized central control factor;
    bring back the sovereignty of the country, county, city, etc.,
    – as well as the individual.

    The individual sovereignties are certainly not in the interests of the WEF, CDC, United Nations, WHO, and all the other international centralized organizations, all under the golden thumb of the international and criminal banking cartel[read BIS] “money”.
    The Nazi Internal, the CCP, and other non-state players wouldn’t like it either.

    He then attended the COP26 Climate Summit in Glasgow. After that, he visited the Middle East with his wife Camilla. They went to the site of the River Jordan where Jesus was baptised and then went and visited the Great Pyramid at Giza – all in the space of two months.

      Baptism – by water and fire – alludes, to Plato’s Cave, that is of Scythian origin, explained by Tolkien, as flame and shadow, and that is cognate with seal six and seven, in the Revelation.

      Pulling a sword from the stone is seal six, and the Grail quest is seal seven. When it comes to RUNES, then Jesuit pretenders on thrones are copycat souffleurs, not alchemists.

      The act, of pulling sword from stone, is an oral exam, to test Druid knowledge of natural symbols, in the Old English Rune poem, depicted on Thames Scramasax.

My view of the next stages is that due to the created hyperinflation there will be chaos in teh US which will be “solved” by the state of Israel. In Europe there will be so much chaos created that Turkey will step to create there the Order ab Chaos.

    Glaziev apparently never went away, and lots of pieces are falling into place. Those “in the know” in the “West” should not have been too surprised at Russia’s economic and financial moves, obviously planned for years. Yet they still seem to be in disarray, as the Zerohedge article suggests. Some time will have to pass before we can discern whether there is a “planned demolition” underway and if so which factions are a party to it, and whether they actually imagined that this process would actually proceed smoothly.
