Must Read! Putin Signs Secret Pact to Crush NATO

By: Trevor Loudon

Moscow’s long term strategy to take down the United States and achieve world domination is nearing its final phase.

Marin Katusa’s new book The Colder War is a must read for anyone who values liberty and the remnants of Western Values.

Katusa focuses on the Energy and Financial Wars, but unfortunately these are only the beginning. The Russians and Chinese plan to destroy the Western Alliance, then if necessary launch a nuclear surprise attack on America, followed by Chinese occupation of the continental US in the longer term.

It is also important to realize that Putin is merely a puppet for the real rulers of Russia – the old KGB/Communist Party hierarchy. Just as every Soviet/Russian leader since Stalin, Putin is merely playing out his assigned role.

Can we stop the Moscow/Beijing/Tehran Axis? If America goes down, the entire West will fall.

Marin Katusa has done us all a very valuable service, with this timely warning.

Back on September 11 and 12, there was a summit meeting in a city that involved an organization that most Americans have never heard of. Mainstream media coverage was all but nonexistent.

The place was Dushanbe, the capital of Tajikistan, a country few Westerners could correctly place on a map.

But you can bet your last ruble that Vladimir Putin knows exactly where Tajikistan is. Because the group that met there is the Russian president’s baby. It’s the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), consisting of six member states: Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan.

The SCO was founded in 2001, ostensibly to collectively oppose extremism and enhance border security. But its real reason for being is larger. Putin sees it in a broad context, as a counterweight to NATO (a position that the SCO doesn’t deny, by the way). Its official stance may be to pledge nonalignment, nonconfrontation, and noninterference in other countries’ affairs, but—pointedly—the members do conduct joint military exercises.

Why should we care about this meeting in the middle of nowhere? Well, obviously, anything that Russia and China propose to do together warrants our attention. But there’s a whole lot more to the story.

Since the SCO’s inception, Russia has been treading somewhat softly, not wanting the group to become a possible stalking horse for Chinese expansion into what it considers its own strategic backyard, Central Asia. But at the same time, Putin has been making new friends around the world as fast as he can. If he is to challenge US global hegemony—a proposition that I examine in detail in my new book, The Colder War—he will need as many alliances as he can forge.

Many observers had been predicting that the Dushanbe meeting would be historic. The expectation was that the organization would open up to new members. However, expansion was tabled in order to concentrate on the situation in Ukraine. Members predictably backed the Russian position and voiced support for continuing talks in the country. They hailed the Minsk cease-fire agreement and lauded the Russian president’s achievement of a peace initiative.

However, the idea of adding new members was hardly forgotten. There are other countries which have been actively seeking to join for years. Now, with the rotating chairmanship of the organization passing to Moscow—and with the next summit scheduled for July 2015 in Ufa, Russia—conditions could favor the organization’s expansion process truly taking shape by next summer, says Putin.

To that end, the participants in Dushanbe signed documents that addressed the relevant issues: a “Model Memorandum on the Obligations of Applicant States for Obtaining SCO Member State Status,” and “On the Procedure for Granting the Status of the SCO Member States.”

This is extremely important, both to Russia and the West, because two of the nations clamoring for inclusion loom large in geopolitics: India and Pakistan. And waiting in the wings is yet another major player—Iran.

In explaining the putting off of a vote on admittance for those countries, Putin’s presidential aide Yuri Ushakov was candid. He told Russian media that expansion at this moment is still premature, due to potential difficulties stemming from the well-known acrimony between India and China, and India and Pakistan, as well as the Western sanctions against Iran. These conflicts could serve to weaken the alliance, and that’s something Russia wants to avoid.

Bringing longtime antagonists to the same table is going to require some delicate diplomatic maneuvering, but that’s not something Putin has ever shied away from. (Who else has managed to maintain cordial relationships with both Iran and Israel?)

As always, Putin is not thinking small or short term here. Among the priorities he’s laid out for the Russian chairmanship are: beefing up the role of the SCO in providing regional security; launching major multilateral economic projects; enhancing cultural and humanitarian ties between member nations; and designing comprehensive approaches to current global problems. He is also preparing an SCO development strategy for the 2015-2025 period and believes it will be ready by the time of the next summit.

We should care what’s going on inside the SCO. Once India and Pakistan get in (and they will) and Iran follows shortly thereafter, it’ll be a geopolitical game changer.

Putin is taking a leadership role in the creation of an international alliance among four of the ten most populous countries on the planet—its combined population constitutes over 40% of the world’s total, just short of 3 billion people. It encompasses the two fastest-growing global economies. Adding Iran means its members would control over half of all natural gas reserves. Development of Asian pipeline networks would boost the nations of the region economically and tie them more closely together.

If Putin has his way, the SCO could not only rival NATO, it could fashion a new financial structure that directly competes with the IMF and World Bank. The New Development Bank (FKA the BRICS Bank), created this past summer in Brazil, was a first step in that direction. And that could lead to the dethroning of the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency, with dire consequences for the American economy.

As I argue in The Colder War, I believe that this is Putin’s ultimate aim: to stage an assault on the dollar that brings the US down to the level of just one ordinary nation among many… and in the process, to elevate his motherland to the most exalted status possible.

What happened in Tajikistan this year and what will happen in Ufa next summer—these things matter. A lot.

Perhaps no one knows how dangerous Vladimir Putin is and how much he controls the flow of capital in the global energy trade than author of The Colder War, Marin Katusa.

The Obama Regime’s Asia Pivot: Made in China

By: Denise Simon
Gulag Bound

The last visit Barack Obama made to China did not go well such that relations have soured on the diplomatic scale. The visit to China this week consumed huge resources to lay the groundwork in advance of the trip for the 2014 Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation. Susan Rice spent the last weeks challenging the fact that China was so slighted during the 2009 extended trip that China has refused since to extend visas and temporary housing permits of Americans in China on business and with media.

First out of the gate, Obama delivered a most generous gift to China and that was to open a new front on visas for Chinese, from one year renewals to 5-10 years effective immediately claiming it will add to American jobs as it is touted that China infuses $80 billion yearly into the U.S economy. $80 billion is hardly a great sum or epic deal when in fact the Chinese hacking world costs the U.S. corporate industry billions and is a top concern of James Comey, Director of the FBI.

It should also be noted that Russia has been quite effective at cultivating a sustained relationship with China while China’s own economy has almost zero growth and their debt ratio to revenue ratio is stagnant cancelling out each other.

China has presented many issues that must be addressed prior to all the enhanced trade talks and global policy cooperation. China has been most aggressive towards yet other U.S. allies in Asia causing outrage and conflict in the S. China sea with regard to island and territory disputes. There is also censorship within the internet industry and continued human rights issues, both of which the White House and the State Department overlook for the sake of placing a happy face on Obama’s foreign policy strategy.

China does have issues when it comes to its own infrastructure including transportation, medical advancements, factories, power and use of energy sources like oil and gas. Each of those conditions facing China are being addressed in partnership with Russia.

Obama will also use his time in China to push for more attention and resources when it comes to Climate Change, an exclusively assigned mission given to John Podesta and investment treaties.

A topic that will likely not receive any time and attention is the Chinese relationship with North Korea and the associated human rights violations on the heels to two Americans being released from a DPRK prison allegedly managed by ODNI Director James Clapper this past weekend.

In summary, what is really behind Obama’s policy platform in China? Well with the beating he took in the midterms, his policy team has decided to focus on the economy. Obama wants Chinese money and he offered a visa pass to get their money. Going visa free in exchange for money is the common ‘go-to’ agenda of the Obama Administration. Question is, exactly who DOES benefit from the $80 billion of Chinese investment where winners and losers are predetermined by the White House.

Any foreigner willing to commit at least $500,000 and create 10 jobs in America can apply for an investor immigrant visa — also known as an EB-5.

Rich Chinese overwhelm U.S. visa program

The demand from mainland Chinese eager to move abroad has already led the U.S. government to warn the program could hit a wall as early as this summer.

Chinese nationals account for more than 80% of visas issued, compared to just 13% a decade ago, according to government data compiled by CNNMoney. That translates to nearly 6,900 visas for Chinese nationals last year, a massive bump up from 2004, when only 16 visas were granted to Chinese.

“The program has literally taken off to the point [that] in China, the minute anybody hears I’m an immigration lawyer, the first thing they say is, ‘Can we get an EB-5 visa?’ ” said Bernard Wolfsdorf, founder of the Wolfsdorf Immigration Law Group.

“There is a panic being created in China about the demand [getting] so big that there is going to be a visa waiting line,” he said.

Obama Refuses to Give Up his Dictatorship

By: Sher Zieve
Gulag Bound

First and foremost, let me disabuse both Marxist Democrats and RINOs of the notion that the Republicans were elected so that they could compromise and get along with the Dems to enact legislation. That is not what occurred 4 November 2014. These elections–both nationwide and states’ wide–were a repudiation and condemnation of big government, big spending, the US “progressive” (aka “Alinskyite”) movement and–of course–Dictator-in-Chief Barack Hussein Obama; both his policies and him personally. In other words, the American people finally awakened from their long and dissatisfying slumber.

Proving once again the will of the American voters means less than nothing to him, Obama almost immediately announced that his replacements-for-the-American-people-with-his-illegal-aliens will proceed. He is substituting the current majority and minority ethnic races in the USA–the ones who finally woke up and saw the real writing on the wall–with his unschooled illegals from Central America and beyond. And, in case there are still a few out there who didn’t notice, Obama replaced his position of the illegal POTUS with that of the ObamaGov tyranny in early 2009. He has no intention of giving up his dictatorship that will continue to replace US citizens with illegal aliens. For those still on the far Left that means–unless you’re a large donor and still useful to Dictator-in-Chief Obama–you’re being replaced too! You didn’t really believe you’d escape Obama’s wrath…did you?

Obama said he plans to issue his blanket amnesty for all of his recently imported illegals–including the Islamists and gang members he’s brought into our country–before the end of December this year. He announced his intent at Friday’s faux “make nice” lunch with the new Senate and old House leadership…after the media cameras were turned off. He will use, yet, another Executive Order to bypass Congress. And on Sunday Obama used the same old excuse he used for the still wildly unpopular ObamaCare, when he told Bob Schieffer on Face the Nation: “It’s not enough just to build a better mousetrap. We’ve got to sell it … There are times, there’s no doubt about it, where I think we have not been successful in going out there and letting people know what it is that we’re trying to do and why this is the right direction.” In other words, the American people are still too stupid to know what they want and their “betters” (aka “Obama syndicate”) will have to force it down their throats…again.

Obama does not plan to compromise on anything, Instead, Obama expects the Republicans who won in a real nationwide landslide to do what he tells them to do. Obama is the American dictator and the GOP better realize that very fast…or else.

Note: I think its time that the GOP leaders resurrect their courage that has been in the back of the closet for a very long time. I know it’s past time that the Republican Party shows some inner fortitude.

GOP leaders: We did not elect you to compromise with Obama in order to “get things done in D.C..” No! We elected you to stop Obama and his anti-American destructive polices. What about the word “stop” do you not understand? Why do you think so many Democrats switched sides and voted Republican? There are still a lot of them who don’t want to see their country dismantled and decimated!

Real leadership in the USA means standing up for the United States Constitution and the American people. We-the-People voted you in, in a “wave election” (Republicans, Democrats and Independents) to get back to our founding principles…not to ignore them and accept our annihilation. It’s time to begin the road back to sanity.
