A Sea Change for Canada Foreign Policy as Freeland Is Replaced by a Pro-Chinese Politico

Published 2019-12-01 16:02:44 by Matthew Ehret in Anglo-5, Canada, Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia, United-States

In Chrystia Freeland’s 2012 book Plutocrats, Canada’s leading Rhodes Scholar laid out a surprisingly clear analysis of the two camps of elites who she explained would, by their very nature, battle for control of the newly emerging system as the old paradigm collapsed. In her book and article series, she described the “practical populist politician” which has tended to be adherent to business interests and personal gain during past decades vs the new breed of “technocrat” which has an enlightened non-practical (ie: Malthusian) worldview, willing to make monetary sacrifices for the “greater good”. She further defined the “good Plutocrats” vs… Continue ->

The Secret War in Africa

Published 2019-12-01 15:00:08 by Guest Author in World, Anglo-5, Color-Revolution, Defense, Eurasia, Finance, Headline-News, Nato, Politics, Russia, United-States

By Steve Brown – The Warsaw Pact may no longer exist, but by contrast the North Atlantic Treaty Organization is expanding its perceived role – the enforcement of western interest – especially in resource-rich Africa.  NATO’s expansion in Africa is intended to assert western corporate influence, where Macron’s France apparently wishes to usurp Germany as the major influential European power.    But corporate interest is not the only driver for NATO’s war in Africa since the Russian Federation has significant ambitions there too. Russian non-governmental private military contractors or ‘Chastnaya Voennaya Kompaniya’ include:   RSB Group Centre R-Redut Antiterror-Orel Shchit… Continue ->

TIRANA – On 26 November, early Wednesday morning at 3:54 local time, northwestern Albania was struck by a strong 6.4-magnitude earthquake with an epicenter northwest of the capital Tirana.

Ukraine’s IMF Gold and the Gold Carry Trade Important Tools for the Monetary Cartel

Published 2019-12-01 13:00:17 by Guest Author in Anglo-5, Color-Revolution, Eurasia, Finance, Headline-News, Politics, Ukraine, United-States

By Steve Brown – Let’s first consider a typical International Monetary Fund (IMF) loan to a sovereign in trouble, and then examine a typical gold carry trade transaction to support a sovereign arms deal. The intent is to demonstrate the importance of physical sovereign gold holdings in all forms of international trade.   Semi-failed and failed states can only exist by dealing in hard assets of real intrinsic value just as Syria, Venezuela, Iran, and Ukraine have done… and the most liquid of those hard assets is their physical gold.    Central Banks always work with the Security State apparatus… Continue ->

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Six of the eleven American aircraft carriers, all of them assigned to port in Norfolk on the US East Coast, are currently non-functional and undergoing either repairs or maintenance, some of which may last for around two years, the media outlet Breaking Defense reported, citing data obtained from the US Navy. It was reportedly expected that at least one of the East Coast carriers would be functional, but the USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) was forced to abandon its mission in September 2019 due to issues with its electric grid and return to Norfolk for repairs…. Continue ->

Haftar says he is ready to humiliate Turkish-backed forces in Libya

Published 2019-12-01 08:39:54 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Headline-News, Libya, Mena, Turkey

Ready for a full-scale conflict in Libya with Erdogan is General Haftar. The development between the Muslim Brotherhood Government of National Accord (GNA) based in Tripoli and Erdogan to steal Greek maritime space, has also sounded the alarm of the rival Tobruk-based Libyan National Army (LNA) in which Haftar leads, especially as Ankara has pledged to support the GNA. It is clear that Turkey will make every move it can as the energy resources of the Mediterranean are a matter of life and death for Ankara. A Libyan official said this agreement is a Turkish attempt to block Greece’s natural… Continue ->

Greek minority blasts Albanian PM for human right violations

Published 2019-12-01 07:34:41 by Paul Antonopoulos in Albania, Eurasia, Headline-News

With the known tactic of beautifying of the actual conditions and situations experienced by the Greek minority in Albania, in a televised interview with EuroNews, in view of the meeting with the Greek Prime Minister, Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama made statements. The Democratic Union of National Hellenic Minority, insisting that no policy can be promoted that would improve the situation without a frank approach and description of the problems, complains that Rama is against the bilingualism of the Albanian and Greek language in the country, and on the other hand for his proven stubbornness to respond to the problems… Continue ->
