Economic bomb from comrade Putin

151
На ресурсе USAwatchdog.com A new article by Comrade Greg Hunter was published, presenting a review of the statements of Jim Sinclair, a well-known gold expert (literally: Sinclair is an expert on investing in gold). The expert believes that Vladimir Putin has prepared a "nuclear bomb" for the West. Along with this, Sinclair speaks almost in an artistic style: “Welcome to the past — into the cold war.”

The world famous gold expert Jim Sinclair, writes G. Hunter, was worried about the crisis in Ukraine. Sinclair declared: “Welcome to the past - to the cold war ...” In his opinion, the cold is about to become hot.

Who started this war? It looks like President Obama, Sinclair believes. According to the gold expert, it was the US president who brought the spirit of the Cold War back to the world, changing diplomacy and outrageously threatening - instead of looking for solutions. Such behavior in the geopolitical arena, Mr. Obama, obviously, considers normal.

Sinclair mentions the referendum in the Crimea, where the "overwhelming majority" spoke "in favor of joining Russia." Still, officials in the West say that this is "illegal or illegitimate" (illegal or illegitimate). At the same time, to put it this way, the West denies that in reality the new Ukrainian government was created as a result of a coup d'etat. Saying so, someone leads us "to the brink of war," says the expert.

In his opinion, the war can begin at any time. We have “two objects” that are armed and “gaze at each other with great hatred.”

Gold specialist is very concerned about such aggressiveness.

On possible US sanctions against Russia (for example, such as excluding a country from the international payment system SWIFT), Sinclair says that the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications may well create "almost prohibitive" difficulties in doing business by blocking bank transfers. That is why the BRICS countries are developing their own payment system. Thus, the West creates a competitor for itself, and this is a mistake, says Sinclair.

In addition, Europe should not forget that Russia supplies it with gas.

Finally, a lot of European and American corporations are now working in Russia.

What is the result?

The expert believes that the sanctions against Russia are about the same as a man’s shot in his own leg.

Who is saying that Russia is nothing more than a regional power? Whose voices are they, where are they from, where are they? Russia with its nuclear weapons and means of delivery - the world power. When we hear that Russia is only a regional power, the expert says, “we hear lies”. And we have no idea what is really going on.

In the meantime, Russia can accept any currency for its oil and gas. She fights, Sinclair notes. She shows her teeth. And the monetary response of Russia will make energy in the world cheaper.

In addition, Russia can respond to at least in order to influence the US dollar exchange rate. Russia will prevail, the expert believes. It can even plunge the American economy into a crisis, a collapse. Actually, there is no such question at all, the analyst believes. “Putin does not need a nuclear bomb,” he notes. “He has a nuclear economic bomb that he can drop at any time.”

In this opinion, Comrade Sinclair is not alone.

17 March under the heading "News business "broadcasting company "BBC" a Robert Peston note was published on the “bear raid” on Wall Street. This, of course, about the Russians and their strategies. And at the same time about Russian friends - the Chinese.

The author of the article notes from the first words “cynicism”, which now has a place “in relations between Russia and the USA”. This cynicism is the most “played out” because of the “Crimean crisis”. However, the roots of this phenomenon go deep into history. Paeston also writes that the triumph of capitalism over communism is by no means the final battle for power between the two states.

Hank Paulson, former US Treasury Secretary, spoke about the depth of distrust between these countries. The interview was previously given for the BBC documentary filmed by the author. The film was dedicated to how the Chinese have fooled the whole world. Paulson’s statements were not included in the film, because they had no direct relation to him. But they gave a visual idea of ​​the complex relations between Washington and Moscow.

The meaning of the statements is that China lent the United States (in the form of buying securities) so much that Mr. Paulson believes that the government and the Fed need to do everything possible to ensure that China’s investments in US debts do not decrease.

All this is understandable, but what happened next. Began a thriller dedicated to international politics. Mr. Paulson met with someone authorized (the names are not called). And this man told him that the Chinese had received a message from the Russians. A very simple message: let's consolidate and dump American securities, let's throw them out to the market.

No, the Chinese are not going to do it right away. However, that authorized person became very scared. It shocked him. Is this what the Russians decided to come to terms with the Chinese - and shake Wall Street, and to the maximum? And then they will go even further - and finally destroy the financial health of the United States?

So far, Paulson asserts, this partisan offensive of the Russians and the Chinese has not happened.

Paulson makes his conclusion. The possible collusion between Moscow and Beijing explains why President Obama shows little desire to understand Putin’s decisions on the Crimea.

According to the expert, the USA is harder than the Europeans insist on imposing sanctions against Russia because the United States, unlike the EU, has only a slight dependence on Russian gas and oil.

Thus, Western economic experts are not of the last magnitude clearly warning the Washington hawks: do not meddle with the Russian bear. Each planned American step can cause two advanced real steps of Moscow and another one and a half catching steps of Beijing ...

    Comrade Sinclair may have exaggerated a little, but it’s high time to create your own analogue of payment systems and have a multidirectional financial policy, rather than ramming the dollar, euro and US government bonds at the Central Bank ...

              Let it be so! A person or a state that has been oppressing everyone around for years should understand that the degree of hatred and aggression towards an oppressor is growing exponentially. That is why, not a single state built on fear, could not survive any significant period.

And in addition, I would not trust the foreign masters who sing odes. Very often they say what the opposite side wants to hear them, and not what they think. And I also suggest thinking about why the third package of sanctions is planned for the summer (July). I really hope that the brains of our financiers and economists in the government still remain.

Earlier, the European Union and the United States imposed visa and financial restrictions on several dozen Russians, mainly officials, deputies and senators. This is due to the accession of Crimea to Russia. Economic sanctions in the EU are under discussion, but so far no solution.

        Our Stabilization Fund was not in dollars, but in debt bonds of the US government, the so-called "thrasheris" - as well as foreign exchange reserves of China. It looks like ours, before the Crimean crisis, almost the entire Stabilization Fund - 100 yards out of 130 - were transferred from trasheris - somewhere ... It is more difficult for the Chinese to do this - they have invested 10 times more, 1,3 trillion in trasheris. If they start selling them, it will immediately depreciate them, as it were, to zero, and China will lose almost all of its reserves. So this is possible only in the event of a direct MILITARY threat to China. He will survive the loss of virtual bucks - the PRC will still work, he is the world's largest REAL manufacturer. But our government rests only on the end of the DEVELOPED reserves of oil and gas. Even the entire Stabilization Fund is not enough to extract the EXPLORED reserves - they are in the undeveloped part of Siberia, under the ice of the Arctic, etc.

          Of course, China is not so lazy and relaxed from the consciousness of its own "superiority" as the United States, and it will be easier for it to survive an extreme situation.

        Well, gold is not the best way, since gold has lost the status of an unshakable unit of account.
        Yuan is also a nonsense.

        As practice has shown, the use of the US dollar as a clearing unit does not fully meet the interests of countries, with the exception of the lenders themselves.
        The introduction of a single currency (euro) is also beneficial only to heavyweights.

        It remains to try an intermediate option: the introduction of a separate "draw" of the external accounting unit with the preservation of national units with a course in relation to it.

According to the gold expert, it was the US President who brought back the spirit of the Cold War to the world by changing diplomacy and outrageous threats - instead of seeking solutions. This behavior in the geopolitical arena, Mr. Obama apparently considers normal. "

    Obama was simply offended that every time I lower him lower and lower and decided to win back at once for all humiliation. That's just for decisive action darling is not enough.

    "Putin doesn't need a nuclear bomb," he notes. "He has a nuclear economic bomb that he can drop at any moment."

    "And this man told him that the Chinese had received a message from the Russians. A very simple message: let's, they say, consolidate and dump American securities - throw them on the market."

        In principle, this is just the case when the government can subsidize banks for the issue of new cards. They stupidly you will let in the appendage to every existing plastic, since the money is not on the card, but on the bank account. And this account will have one more card. What is the benefit of the government / Central Bank - and the commission will go not to foreign operators of payment systems, but to the national one. I think we are talking about large enough amounts to compensate for the massive emission of national plastic. Plus, at the level of the law, you can stupidly "recommend" to use the national payment system for internal payments.
        Further, if you dream up, you can get BRICS partners involved in this business, especially since that Sberbank already has a branch, well, a network in China, and then down the list hi

        As for the collapse of the dollar, it is not so simple with the benefit for us. For the US financial collapse will entail a non-sour crisis around the world - after all, the first economy in the world will fall to the bottom. And in order to minimize losses from this, you need to try Pts, and there will be losses, including from China. And how do you imagine that China itself will kill its main buyer? Overnight, this certainly will not happen. And all such articles on this topic are just the reasoning of the next lobbyist for someone's interests. First you need to think - and who benefits from it?

    Thus, the West creates a competitor for itself, and this is a mistake, Sinclair says.

    They have been doing just that lately. Modern China can be said to have created the United States themselves. It looks like the blinders of overconfidence do not allow to see the consequences, or the belief in the omnipotent dollar. Of course, the collapse of the dollar will affect the global economy, but the slow process may be resisted. Well, for example, a controlled transition to another currency. But they themselves constantly scratch on their ridge. Their "exclusivity" may get bored, they will cease to stand on ceremony in spite of the consequences and will want to accelerate, they will say well, a little chaos and there is a bright future.

In general, this is a confrontation between the two structures of the light of knowledge and the darkness of ignorance.

    Obama is a slave, as it has been for centuries in America. He does everything the white master says. There is no logic in the actions of the President of the United States, and the white masters consider the profits from the unkilled bear, they also do not care about logic. It all comes down to the fact that the US is already trying to set EU countries on Russia. and does it already openly. And the US colonies are timid but still go to the chopping block, although they certainly understand that America will throw them at the last minute. Thus, America believes that it will kill two birds with one stone, will return Europe to a state of stability and economy like 1945 year. See how the United States today is preparing not only Ukraine but also Poland, the Baltic countries, Romania, Georgia, Azerbaijan, etc. they stuff tons of weapons there, and carry out massive propaganda there. Complete devastation and chaos, and here they are Americans with their loans. But Russia is weakened and can be devoured.
    Therefore, if we do not have time, then they will have time!

      Yes everything is correct.
      At the moment, I'm afraid to jinx it, but problems may arise in Belarus.

      This 44th president reminds me of a poisonous snake that got hit in the nose and is so hungry for revenge that it has lost its mind.
      Only a clear position of China can enlighten it.
      I see no other way.
      Everything is in the hands of our diplomacy and intelligence.

    But there are people who believe that we do not need the Crimea and at least count on their head. Just talked with that. He says that it’s a poor region, to invest a lot of money there, we say there is Sochi, the Black Sea Fleet has already been bought out, and Europe will now stop buying our gas (will switch to liquefied gas) and what will we do. Moreover, the ministry cut the budget for them because of the Crimea. I don’t know if my arguments have worked, there are people who have formed their point of view and can’t do anything with them in 10 minutes of conversation on the street))

    Let's be aware of the fact that China has already become a superpower (all the attributes are obvious: huge influence in the world, vast territories, independent foreign policy, the presence of nuclear weapons, etc.) In addition, the lion's share of the US foreign economic debt belongs to China. )). And for America it can turn into BIG problems !!! Looking at the current confrontation between Russia and the West, I doubt that China will take the side of the "democracy" of the US and the EU after they have left no stone unturned from world law! China has its sore spots in domestic relations. Wise China reserves the right to maneuver in the international market, and the position of the Western powers will deprive it of this opportunity completely !!! China's decision to support Russia knocked out American diplomacy even more than the "outrage" of the Russian Federation in the Crimea !!! The states are afraid of this union like the devil of incense, in fact for them this is the beginning of the end!

      No need to deceive ourselves about the plans of the Chinese. They pursue only their interests. And, unlike others, they are trying to approximate the consequences of the political steps of different countries both in the near and long term.
      Based on this, they decide on whose mill to pour some water. Or maybe stand aside.

    ... Mr. Paulson believes that the government and the Fed need to do everything possible so that China's investment in US debt does not decrease.

    If you believe the "experts", the United States has an unbearable external and internal debt. Those. he never will not be paid off. And then what? Again, according to these experts, there are several ways out:
    1. Forgive everyone who should and introduce Amero instead of the dollar (external debt)
    2. Continue to print money: well, debt is growing and figs with it
    3. Unleash the Third World, of course, on the ... European continent, and thereby write off it a la Lend-Lease.

    Sanctions will hit primarily on our oligarchs ..... Do you think they will forgive Putin? ..


    I won’t give you the numbers, but approximately:
    for example, a mosque or a channel, their production and work is primarily oriented to the domestic market, not everywhere and not always
    the same mosque was conducted by ipio - just a few years ago, the volumes of consumption of coal and metal are mostly internal.
    and if there is domestic demand - construction - and metallurgy is the second industry after the energy sector, then external sanctions will not hit much, while decreasing any share in the foreign market, does the market respond by increasing prices, but is it necessary for Western partners?

    ... example from our experience: Russia supplied coking coal for nippon steel, for steel production, the share of our coal was in the range of 2-3%, but the quality of this coal, like any other, is very unique, and the production is very finely tuned for a mixture of coal , and if you remove the Russian 2-3% - then compensate for them stupidly by increasing supplies from the same Australia - in principle, it is not possible, because you need to reconfigure the whole process - and this is both time and money and quality, and as a result, the volume and price of current products

Also, China, if it wants to help us, can sharply limit the supply of rare earth metals to the EU and the US, as it was in 2012: - "US President Barack Obama said on Tuesday that China violated the rules of the World Trade Organization by limiting the export of rare earth metals."

    Putin was waiting ... for a long time and patiently ... increasing military power, driving Europe more and more into dependence on Russian hydrocarbons, raising his political weight ... but I got the impression that Putin’s steps that enraged the whole world and created an open confrontation West and East is a very thoughtful game that was being prepared for more than one day ... something else was needed, maybe more information ... and it appeared in the person of Mr. Snowden ... and the author correctly speaks of an economic nuclear bomb .. . But I think in the hands of Putin there is a political nuclear an omba that can easily crush NATO, either a political unit or the European Union (which is already bursting at the seams), and the United States with its bloated pseudo-democracy ... EVERYTHING WHY IT FORGOT FORGET ABOUT SNOWDON, AND NO ONE KNOWS THAT HE TAKEN OUR SPECIAL SERVICES ...

But nothing! The stupid amerovskaya public wentssip about this topic and calmed down ... That's the whole effect of the "political nuclear bomb". Open your eyes, turn on your brain and notice that Russia is now in MANY MANY TIMES MORE BAD POSITION than the USSR at the time of its demise. The only thing that is holding back the West from a RADICAL SOLUTION OF THE RUSSIAN QUESTION so far is Russia's nuclear weapons. And as soon as they deploy their missile defense system in full ... then the end of Russia will come ... and no papers and a missile will save ...
