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.

The following is a roundup of the @FinanceExaminer Ken “the Shotgun Professor” Schortgen Jr’s posts about the hysteria surrounding the Trump-Putin summit and the intriguing discovery of a Russo-Japanese war era shipwreck reportedly containing over $100 billion in gold bars. Even if the estimate of what can be salvaged from the Far Eastern waters proves overly optimistic, the shipwreck underlines the massive mineral wealth the Russian treasury possessed on the eve of World War I that Moscow’s historic enemies in the City of London coveted, and eventually plundered while using the mass murdering Bolsheviks as their agents. — JWSRead More

Ken discusses the European Union (EU)'s hypocrisy on trade, China's growth at U.S. expense boosted by import and duty taxes, and domestic subsidies the World Trade Organization (WTO) ignores because it is a globalist organization dedicated to offshoring American industry. -- JWSRead More
The first phone call between U.S. President Donald J. Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin is set for Saturday evening Moscow time (around midday in Washington D.C.), January 28, according to Reuters. The call which White House National Security Adviser retired Army Gen./Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) chief Michael T. Flynn helped to arrange, according to presidential spokesman Sean Spicer, is the first since Putin congratulated Trump on his victory shortly after November 9. It also comes as the unofficial/official NATO think tank the Atlantic Council freaks out about a reported draft executive order circulating in the Trump White House to lift some of the sanctions President Barack Hussein Obama ordered on the Russians after the return of Crimea to Russia in March 2014...Read More
