For those of you who saw the F. Gary Gray 2003 remake of "The Italian Job" starring Mark Wahlberg, Ed Norton, and Donald Sutherland, you will recall a hilarious line where 'Skinny Pete said: "If there's one thing I know, it's never to mess with mother nature, mother-in-laws, and mother fv*king Ukrainians."

Why haven't world governments learned this? It was bad enough all the intervention that took place within the Ukraine, which inevitably back-fired on them, ...but now the USA wants to hold joint exercises with Ukraine at the Russian border?  Shocked Like that is really going to sit well with Putin? Roll Eyes This just wreaks of desperation... Meanwhile the various alphabet agencies back stateside are clearing Americans off the land... making way for a smoother transfer of ownership and land title to the Chinese perhaps?

Russia’s Petro-Ruble Challenges US Dollar Hegemony.
By Peter Koenig
Global Research, April 08, 2014




China Seeks Development of Eurasian Trade. China will re-open the old Silk Road as a new trading route linking Germany, Russia and China


Russia has just dropped another bombshell, announcing not only the de-coupling of its trade from the dollar, but also that its hydrocarbon trade will in the future be carried out in rubles and local currencies of its trading partners – no longer in dollars – see Voice of Russia Article

Russia’s trade in hydrocarbons amounts to about a trillion dollars per year. Other countries, especially the BRICS and BRCIS-associates (BRICSA) may soon follow suit and join forces with Russia, abandoning the ‘petro-dollar’ as trading unit for oil and gas. This could amount to tens of trillions in loss for demand of petro-dollars per year (US GDP about 17 trillion dollars – December 2013) – leaving an important dent in the US economy would be an understatement.

Added to this is the declaration today by Russia’s Press TV – China will re-open the old Silk Road as a new trading route linking Germany, Russia and China, allowing to connect and develop new markets along the road, especially in Central Asia, where this new project will bring economic and political stability, and in Western China provinces,where “New Areas” of development will be created. The first one will be the Lanzhou New Area in China’s Northwestern Gansu Province, one of China’s poorest regions.

Quote

“During his visit to Duisburg, Chinese President Xi Jinping made a master stroke of economic diplomacy that runs directly counter to the Washington neo-conservative faction’s effort to bring a new confrontation between NATO and Russia.”
(press TV, April 6, 2014)

“Using the role of Duisburg as the world’s largest inland harbor, an historic transportation hub of Europe and of Germany’s Ruhr steel industry center, he proposed that Germany and China cooperate on building a new “economic Silk Road” linking China and Europe. The implications for economic growth across Eurasia are staggering.”


Curiously, western media have so far been oblivious to both events. It seems like a desire to extending the falsehood of our western illusion and arrogance – as long as the silence will bear.

Germany, the economic driver of Europe – the world’s fourth largest economy (US$ 3.6 trillion GDP) – on the western end of the new trading axis, will be like a giant magnet, attracting other European trading partners of Germany’s to the New Silk Road. What looks like a future gain for Russia and China, also bringing about security and stability, would be a lethal loss for Washington.

In addition, the BRICS are preparing to launch a new currency – composed by a basket of their local currencies – to be used for international trading, as well as for a new reserve currency, replacing the rather worthless debt ridden dollar – a welcome feat for the world.

Along with the new BRICS(A) currency will come a new international payment settlement system, replacing the SWIFT and IBAN exchanges, thereby breaking the hegemony of the infamous privately owned currency and gold manipulator, the Bank for International Settlement (BIS) in Basel, Switzerland – also called the central bank of all central banks.

To be sure – the BIS is a privately owned for profit institution, was created in the early 1930’s, in the midst of the big economic melt-down of the 20th Century. The BIS was formed precisely for that purpose – to control the world’s monetary system, along with the also privately owned FED and the Wall Street Banksters – the epitome of private unregulated ownership.

The BIS is known to hold at least half a dozen secret meetings per year, attended by the world’s elite, deciding the fate of countries and entire populations. Their demise would be another welcome new development.

As the new trading road and monetary system will take hold, other countries and nations, so far in the claws of US dependence, will flock to the ‘new system’, gradually isolating Washington’s military industrial economy (sic) and its NATO killing machine.

This Economic Sea Change may bring the empire to its knees, without spilling a drop of blood. An area of new hope for justice and more equality, a rebirth of sovereign states, may dawn and turn the spiral of darkness into a spiral of light.

Russia prepares to attack the petrodollar

Фото: РИА Новости

The US dollar's position as the base currency for global energy trading gives the US a number of unfair advantages. It seems that Moscow is ready to take those advantages away.

The existence of "petrodollars" is one of the pillars of America's economic might because it creates a significant external demand for American currency, allowing the US to accumulate enormous debts without defaulting. If a Japanese buyer wants to buy a barrel of Saudi oil, he has to pay in dollars even if no American oil company ever touches the said barrel. Dollar has held a dominant position in global trading for such a long time that even Gazprom's natural gas contracts for Europe are priced and paid for in US dollars. Until recently, a significant part of EU-China trade had been priced in dollars.

Lately, China has led the BRICS efforts to dislodge the dollar from its position as the main global currency, but the "sanctions war" between Washington and Moscow gave an impetus to the long-awaited scheme to launch the petroruble and switch all Russian energy exports away from the US currency .

The main supporters of this plan are Sergey Glaziev, the economic aide of the Russian President and Igor Sechin, the CEO of Rosneft, the biggest Russian oil company and a close ally of Vladimir Putin. Both have been very vocal in their quest to replace the dollar with the Russian ruble. Now, several top Russian officials are pushing the plan forward.

First, it was the Minister of Economy, Alexei Ulyukaev who told Russia 24 news channel that the Russian energy companies must ditch the dollar. "They must be braver in signing contracts in rubles and the currencies of partner-countries," he said.

Then, on March 2, Andrei Kostin, the CEO of state-owned VTB bank, told the press that Gazprom, Rosneft and Rosoboronexport, state company specialized in weapon exports, can start trading in rubles. " I've spoken to Gazprom, to Rosneft and Rosoboronexport management and they don't mind switching their exports to rubles. They only need a mechanism to do that ", Kostin told the attendees of the annual Russian Bank Association meeting.

Judging by the statement made at the same meeting by Valentina Matviyenko, the speaker of Russia's upper house of parliament, it is safe to assume that no resources will be spared to create such a mechanism. " Some ‘hot headed' decision-makers have already forgotten that the global economic crisis of 2008 - which is still taking its toll on the world - started with a collapse of certain credit institutions in the US, Great Britain and other countries. This is why we believe that any hostile financial actions are a double-edged sword and even the slightest error will send the boomerang back to the aborigines," she said.

It seems that Moscow has decided who will be in charge of the "boomerang". Igor Sechin, the CEO of Rosneft, has been nominated to chair the board of directors of Saint-Petersburg Commodity Exchange, a specialized commodity exchange. In October 2013, speaking at the World Energy Congress in Korea, Sechin called for a "global mechanism to trade natural gas" and went on suggesting that " it was advisable to create an international exchange for the participating countries, where transactions could be registered with the use of regional currencies ". Now, one of the most influential leaders of the global energy trading community has the perfect instrument to make this plan a reality. A Russian commodity exchange where reference prices for Russian oil and natural gas will be set in rubles instead of dollars will be a strong blow to the petrodollar.

Rosneft has recently signed a series of big contracts for oil exports to China and is close to signing a "jumbo deal" with Indian companies. In both deals, there are no US dollars involved. Reuters reports, that Russia is close to entering a goods-for-oil swap transaction with Iran that will give Rosneft around 500,000 barrels of Iranian oil per day to sell in the global market. The White House and the russophobes in the Senate are livid and are trying to block the transaction because it opens up some very serious and nasty scenarios for the petrodollar. If Sechin decides to sell this Iranian oil for rubles, through a Russian exchange, such move will boost the chances of the "petroruble" and will hurt the petrodollar.

It can be said that the US sanctions have opened a Pandora's box of troubles for the American currency. The Russian retaliation will surely be unpleasant for Washington, but what happens if other oil producers and consumers decide to follow the example set by Russia? During the last month, China opened two centers to process yuan-denominated trade flows, one in London and one in Frankfurt. Are the Chinese preparing a similar move against the greenback? We'll soon find out.

Switzerland snubs U.S. effort to sanction Russian billionaires
Reuters
April 2, 2014 12:21 PM
 
ZURICH (Reuters) - Russian officials sanctioned by the European Union will be barred from new business interests in Switzerland but billionaires included on the U.S. sanctions list face no restrictions, the Swiss government said on Wednesday.

Switzerland decided last week against imposing its own sanctions in response to the Ukraine crisis, but promised not to become a place to circumvent sanctions imposed elsewhere.

In a statement on Wednesday, it fleshed out its plans to make sure people on the EU list - 33 politicians and security officials - could not use Switzerland to bypass the EU rules, but did not mention those sanctioned by the U.S. Treasury.

A spokeswoman for the Swiss State Secretariat for Economics (SECO) later confirmed to Reuters that only the individuals on the EU sanctions list were affected by the Swiss measures.

The United States and the EU have both imposed personal sanctions against Russian and Crimean officials involved in last month's seizure of the Crimea peninsula from Ukraine.

Washington has also targeted a bank and several Russian billionaires, including Gennady Timchenko, whose sale of his shareholding in Geneva-based oil trader Gunvor narrowly averted collateral damage to the Swiss commodity trading sector.

Switzerland, a global commodity trading and private banking hub, is a popular destination for Russia's wealthy elite and reluctant to take steps it fears could compromise its cherished neutrality or damage closely-nurtured trade ties with Moscow.

Switzerland has already been under pressure for years over its secrecy laws, which helped make it the world's biggest offshore financial centre but drew the ire of countries seeking to fight tax evasion - especially the United States, but also Germany and France.

In its statement the government said financial intermediaries in Switzerland would be prohibited from entering into new business relationships with the 33 Russians and Crimeans on the EU's sanctions list.

This means those named on the list will not be allowed to transfer assets to Switzerland that they hold outside of the EU, it said. Assets within the EU are already blocked by the EU sanctions.

Existing business relationships will not be subject to the ban but must be reported to SECO, including details of beneficiaries, purpose and value, so that the government can gain an overview of the what relationships and assets the persons concerned have in Switzerland.

The measures will come into force at 1600 GMT on Wednesday. Depending on how the situation develops, the government left open the possibility of taking further action.

Russian assets in Swiss banks stood at nearly 13.8 billion Swiss francs ($15.6 billion) in 2012, with another 2.5 billion held by fiduciaries according to the most recent data from the Swiss National Bank. This does not include private banking funds or other assets such as precious metals and real estate.

France has been a predominantly Catholic country for centuries. It's their right to decide how they live.

It's anybodies right to decide how they live their lives, ...regardless of how long they have been in a country.
What I see happening here is rampant xenophobia. What's the big deal having an alternative to pork on the menu? ...especially when a high percentage of diners don't eat pork? No one is saying those who want to eat pork can't.
I just think it smacks of hypocrisy when you state there will be no religiously based menu options available,
...then you cater to Catholic religious habits. What's next? ...forbidding the circumcision of new born babies?  Roll Eyes

You don't see them immigrating to Pakistan and demanding Friday fish though.

Le Pen is claiming schools should not cater to religious beliefs... well, if that's the case, they should have no problems with a ban on school cafeterias serving fish on Fridays no? That would be catering to Catholics no?.

I just think it's petty if you ask me.

Between these political parties in Europe and Vladamir Putin the globalists must be having an epic meltdown.


Marine Le Pen's party is often charged with being hostile and discriminatory towards Muslims and Jews. The latest move, reported in the global media as 'Eat pork or go hungry', will no doubt add to the fears.

The disgusting blind xenophobic racists in Le Pens party who live in their ignorant little bubbles, and cheer on this decision would probably have a hissy fit, if school cafeterias stopped serving fish on Fridays. Roll Eyes

71  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Injury and Rehabilitation / Re: horrible upper back pain on: April 05, 2014, 12:52:05 AM
I was doing burpees last Friday, and I was really worn out.  I came down hard on the pushup part and felt a click on the upper side of my shoulder blade towards the middle of my back.  It was horrible when I woke up Saturday, but got better through the day. 

That night I felt okay, and did squats.  It hurt after that a little bit, I moved onto barbell lunges and after that it was absulutly killing me.  I had to stop before finishing my workout and walked out to the car with my neck tilted sideways and leaning.  I couldn't steer the car very well.

It's better today than it was at its worst, but still hurts bad when I move a certain way like sitting down.  I can't really do anything today because of it.  Like a jolting kind of pain.  Killed me every time I rolled over last night.  Hurts like hell to sneeze.


Any suggestions?  Info?  Thank you!!!  Cool Shocked


Roger,
Were you able to get an answer or solution to your question? If so, can you please share it with me?
Looks like I'm in the same boat. It looks like the same muscle, but on the opposite side.
I don't know how I sprained it. Every time I turn my neck to the right, there's that jolting pain that I can feel down the entire length of the muscle, ...and sometimes when I try to lift my gym bag over my left shoulder. In the past, I've always been able to gently stretch out the muscle, but this time, it's impossible. I have to turn my neck to the right in order to stretch it out, and that triggers the jolting pain. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks

This part I will agree with. Human Experimentation without consent or full disclosure in the USA is nothing new.
Neither is the EPA's human experimentation with PM's.
Anyone who knows how to read between the lines and connect the dots has known about this for years.
Interestingly enough, when I was marketing MPG Caplets worldwide, the biggest selling feature internationally was the impact it had reducing NOX and particulate matter, ...but in the USA, no one cared about that benefit. All Americans cared about was what the product could save them in their pocket book... despite enjoying some of the lowest fuel prices among so called "First World" nations. Roll Eyes

As for the economy & budget deficit, ...those wheels were already in motion and well past their tipping points before Obama ever came on the scene.

Chrisians shouldn't be upset by this ruling.  It seems fair to allow the distribution of literature if christians are already allowed to. 

Agreed.

However, I believe the error was made in the distribution of the Bibles to begin with.
Separation of Church & State. If anything, allow distribution of the materials for research purposes, however, include other POV's as well. Stock them in the libraries, but no religious indoctrination instruction in the classroom, and certainly not at the elementary levels.

More evidence that atheists proselytize. 

It has been my experience that atheists for the most part are not big on the proselytizing, ...but I have one atheist acquaintance whose whole life is was all about proselytizing. Oh the battles we would have!!!

I realized it was in reaction to his having been raised in a part of the USA that is heavily repressed with 'religiosity' but he was ridiculous! I finally had to tear him a new one, and make him realize he was the flip side of the coin he detested so much!!!

A few years back while seething with anger, I once said I hated evangelicals. What I meant to say at the time, and should have instead expressed, was my displeasure with proselytizers. Pent up anger & resentment sure can discombobulated the brain.   Tongue

Shock-- you are 100% right. There is no such thing as coincidence in the political arena. I respect your opinion regardless, but especially in this case because it confirms that I'm not imagining shit.

IMO this whole "massacre" was nothing more than an elaborate hoax.  

I challenge anyone to watch the first two videos and tell me something isn't terribly wrong.

For the record, I do not believe 911, or the moon landing, or any other tin foil hat conspiracy theory popular among our getbig breathren is legitimate.


Man, that just bugs the poop out of me that you should even feel compelled to state that disclaimer.

I mean, what the heck is wrong with people these days? Just because you question an anomaly, or something doesn't quite seem kosher to you about a particular line of  "official rhetoric" ...that's suppose to mean you automatically believe every conspiracy theory that has ever been floated? Nonsense! The very fact that so many close-minded pin heads expect a "conspiracy theory" to first receive the proverbial "stamp of approval" from the very MSM presstitutes who collude with the very conspirators themselves before it can be examined is beyond a joke, and they're too ignorant and mentally enslaved to realize they're walking around in a trance, and that their minds are not their own. Screw 'em! You don't need their approval to believe what you want, and screw 'em if they're ignorant enough to attribute other beliefs to you by osmosis.
