War Party Flails Against the New Reality Defined by the Singapore and Helsinki Summits

War Party Flails Against the New Reality Defined by the Singapore and Helsinki Summits

On Friday Russian President Vladimir Putin said while in South Africa for the BRICS Summit that he had invited U.S. President Donald Trump to Moscow for talks. The Administration reciprocated later in the day, saying Putin is welcome to visit the White House next year. Despite major Senate opposition and hysterical press and social media cries of ‘treason!’, the two sides are slowly working towards easing tensions. The response from the British-led trans-Atlantic deep state and their front men in Congress has been to propose more sanctions and accuse Moscow of hacking into the U.S. power grid and the campaign of Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill.

The deep state dead-enders are doubling down on the Russiagate scandal, with former attorney Michael Cohen contradicting his previous Senate testimony and public denials that candidate Trump did not know about a summer 2016 meeting between his son Donald Jr. and Fusion GPS paid “Russian government lawyer” provocateur Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower (Ms. Veselnitskaya was coached by Fusion GPS CEO Glenn Simpson before the meeting and after it). The President tweeted out that Cohen has likely hired old Clintons crony Lanny Davis and turned on his former patron to save himself and his Ukrainian-born father in law from an indictment over fraud in their New York taxi business — charges that, like the indictments against former campaign chair Paul Manafort, have nothing to do with Russia collusion. But they have everything to do with special counsel Robert Mueller’s desperation to find any witness who can testify for him against President Trump.

SPIEF 2018: Economic forum dedicates first day of conference to alternative ways nations can ditch the dollar

With Russia already fully prepared to not only move away from the dollar themselves in international trade, but also able to offer the rest of the world an alternative to the global reserve currency system, perhaps it should not be surprising that they have dedicated a full day of their annual economic forum to discussion on ways nations can join them in this crusade.

The first day of the 2018 St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) has seen some fireworks come out right off the bat at the threat of the U.S. imposing even more sanctions on nations such as Iran, France, North Korea, and even Germany has made talks on how businesses and nations can use alternative financial platforms to evade any and all restrictions Washington may impose through their use of the dollar as a financial weapon a high priority.
