Russia Threatens Sweden With Military Force

A Russian official warned today that military action will be taken, should Sweden decide to join NATO.

Russian ambassador, Viktor Tartarintsec, said in an interview that there will be “counter measures” and that “Russia will have to resort to a response of the military kind” while re-orientating their “troops and missiles”, should Sweden become an official member of NATO. He added that any “country that joins NATO, needs to be aware of the risks it is exposing itself to”.

“Russia is often described as an attacker who only thinks of conducting wars and threatening others,” he told DN, “I can guarantee that Sweden, which is an alliance-free nation, is not [currently] part of any military plans by Russian authorities. Sweden is not a target for our armed troops.”

In the interview, the ambassador implied that while Sweden may not currently be considered a “target” by Russia, this could change should they join the NATO alliance. One in three Swedes support joining NATO, according to a poll conducted last month. This is an increase from a 2012 poll indicating that only 17% of those in Sweden favored becoming a NATO member.

The increase is likely due to Russia’s renewed aggression that is currently taking place in Europe, which began with the annexation of Crimea last year, and the violence that continues to take place in Eastern Ukraine today. Russia however, blames the increase on “aggressive propaganda” being spread by Swedish media. Russia also denies any contribution to the Ukrainian crisis, and says that NATO is the aggressor, despite this threat being made against Sweden.

Though not an official member of NATO, Sweden is currently considered a close NATO partner. While not capable of triggering the “an attack on one is an attack on all” clause of the NATO charter, Sweden does take part in many military drills along side the alliance, some of which are currently taking place in Poland just miles away from Russian territory.

11 Top Experts Predict Global Economic Disaster in 2015

Will 2015 be a year of financial crashes, economic chaos and the start of the next great worldwide depression?  Over the past couple of years, we have all watched as global financial bubbles have gotten larger and larger.  Despite predictions that they could burst at any time, they have just continued to expand.  But just like we witnessed in 2001 and 2008, all financial bubbles come to an end at some point, and when they do implode the pain can be extreme.  Personally, I am entirely convinced that the financial markets are more primed for a financial collapse now than they have been at any other time since the last crisis happened nearly seven years ago.  And I am certainly not alone.  At this point, the warning cries have become a deafening roar as a whole host of prominent voices have stepped forward to sound the alarm.  The following are 11 predictions of economic disaster in 2015 from top experts all over the globe…

#1 Bill Fleckenstein: “They are trying to make the stock market go up and drag the economy along with it. It’s not going to work. There’s going to be a big accident. When people realize that it’s all a charade, the dollar will tank, the stock market will tank, and hopefully bond markets will tank. Gold will rally in that period of time because it’s done what it’s done because people have assumed complete infallibility on the part of the central bankers.”

#2 John Ficenec: “In the US, Professor Robert Shiller’s cyclically adjusted price earnings ratio – or Shiller CAPE – for the S&P 500 is currently at 27.2, some 64pc above the historic average of 16.6. On only three occasions since 1882 has it been higher – in 1929, 2000 and 2007.”

#3 Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, one of the most respected economic journalists on the entire planet: “The eurozone will be in deflation by February, forlornly trying to ignite its damp wood by rubbing stones. Real interest rates will ratchet higher. The debt load will continue to rise at a faster pace than nominal GDP across Club Med. The region will sink deeper into a compound interest trap.”

#4 The Jerome Levy Forecasting Center, which correctly predicted the bursting of the subprime mortgage bubble in 2007: “Clearly the direction of most of the recent global economic news suggests movement toward a 2015 downturn.”

#5 Paul Craig Roberts: “At any time the Western house of cards could collapse. It (the financial system) is a house of cards. There are no economic fundamentals that support stock prices — the Dow Jones. There are no economic fundamentals that support the strong dollar…”

#6 David Tice: “I have the same kind of feel in ’98 and ’99; also ’05 and ’06.  This is going to end badly. I have every confidence in the world.”

#7 Liz Capo McCormick and Susanne Walker: “Get ready for a disastrous year for U.S. government bonds. That’s the message forecasters on Wall Street are sending.”

#8 Phoenix Capital Research: “Just about everything will be hit as well. Most of the ‘recovery’ of the last five years has been fueled by cheap borrowed Dollars. Now that the US Dollar has broken out of a multi-year range, you’re going to see more and more ‘risk assets’ (read: projects or investments fueled by borrowed Dollars) blow up. Oil is just the beginning, not a standalone story.

If things really pick up steam, there’s over $9 TRILLION worth of potential explosions waiting in the wings. Imagine if the entire economies of both Germany and Japan exploded and you’ve got a decent idea of the size of the potential impact on the financial system.”

#9 Rob Kirby: “What this breakdown in the crude oil price is going to spawn another financial crisis.  It will be tied to the junk debt that has been issued to finance the shale oil plays in North America.  It is reported to be in the area of half a trillion dollars worth of junk debt that is held largely on the books of large financial institutions in the western world.  When these bonds start to fail, they will jeopardize the future of these financial institutions.  I do believe that will be the signal for the Fed to come riding to the rescue with QE4.  I also think QE4 is likely going to be accompanied by bank bail-ins because we all know all western world countries have adopted bail-in legislation in their most recent budgets.  The financial elites are engineering the excuse for their next round of money printing . . .  and they will be confiscating money out of savings accounts and pension accounts.  That’s what I think is coming in the very near future.”

#10 John Ing: “The 2008 collapse was just a dress rehearsal compared to what the world is going to face this time around. This time we have governments which are even more highly leveraged than the private sector was.

So this time the collapse will be on a scale that is many magnitudes greater than what the world witnessed in 2008.”

#11 Gerald Celente: “What does the word confidence mean? Break it down. In this case confidence = con men and con game. That’s all it is. So people will lose confidence in the con men because they have already shown their cards. It’s a Ponzi scheme. So the con game is running out and they don’t have any more cards to play.

What are they going to do? They can’t raise interest rates. We saw what happened in the beginning of December when the equity markets started to unravel. So it will be a loss of confidence in the con game and the con game is soon coming to an end. That is when you are going to see panic on Wall Street and around the world.”

If you have been following my website, you know that I have been pointing to 2015 for quite some time now.

For example, in my article entitled “The Seven Year Cycle Of Economic Crashes That Everyone Is Talking About“, I discussed the pattern of financial crashes that we have witnessed every seven years that goes all the way back to the Great Depression.  The last two major stock market crashes began in 2001 and 2008, and now here we are seven years later.

Will the same pattern hold up once again?

In addition, there are many other economic cycles that seem to indicate that we are due for a major economic downturn.  I discussed quite a few of these theories in my article entitled “If Economic Cycle Theorists Are Correct, 2015 To 2020 Will Be Pure Hell For The United States“.

But just like in 2000 and 2007, there are a whole host of doubters that are fully convinced that the party can continue indefinitely.  Even though our economic fundamentals continue to get worse, our debt levels continue to grow and every objective measurement shows that Wall Street is more reckless and more vulnerable to collapse than ever before, they mock the idea that a financial collapse is imminent.

So let’s see what happens in 2015.

I have a feeling that it is going to be an extremely “interesting” year.

Russia Plans Atomic “First Strike” As “False Flag” Racial Massacre Pushes America To Brink Of Insanity

Atomic “First Strike”

The Ministry of Defense (MoD), in a joint report with the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR), is reporting today that President Putin has ordered an immediate “strategic targeting” of what are defined as “Communist Controlled Regions” existing within the United States with an additional up to 50 new RS-24 Yars (SS-29) atomic-armed mobile and submarine based intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) having multiple warhead capabilities and a range of up to 12,070 km (7,500 miles).

According to this report, SVR analysts are predicting that the Obama regime is in the “final phase” of perpetrating a number of “false flag” operations within the United States designed to “insanely” fracture this country along racial, cultural and political lines in order to subdue the population ahead of the coming global banking-financial crash many global experts state will occur no later than 1 October 2015, and which the Federation must urgently prepare for.

Using a 200-500 atomic warhead “first strike” scenario against the continental United States (lower 48 US States), this report continues, the “preferred targets” include the Eastern coastal regions from Washington D.C. to New York City along with Western coastal regions running from San Diego to San Francisco, California, and then from Salem, Oregon to Seattle, Washington, along with the metropolitan region of Denver, Colorado, where “secondary” US government facilities operate, and the Obama regimes massive new nuclear weapons plant in Kansas City, Missouri.

Both MoD and SVR strategic analysts contributing to this report theorize that by attacking only these “Communist Controlled Regions” of the United States, the remaining American population, and their still existing leaders, will push for an immediate cessation of the war as their main “ideological opponents” (and the vastly morally corrupted governmental, media, entertainment and banking system they controlled) would have been destroyed thus creating a United States “more like it used to be, than it is now”. [то, что было лучше, чем сейчас]

These MoD and SVR analysts further state that a United States ruled by its traditional “Christian-heritage heartland”, instead of its present Communist oligarchs, would be a vastly more peaceful nation within the international community thus ending its nearly 80 year rampage across the world that has resulted in tens-of-millions in deaths.

As to the timing of this atomic “first strike” against these Communists this report doesn’t say, but grimly it does point out that since 2013, the United States has been without one of their main defense capabilities after they shockingly shut down their TARS Air Defense System along their southern border thus allowing Federation submarine-based atomic cruise missiles fired from the Atlantic Ocean/Gulf of Mexico regions to hit their American targets within minutes.

In their knowing of the potential for Federation atomic weapons to destroy them “within minutes”, this report further notes, the Obama regime has quietly begun working to set up an elaborate network of defenses to protect their main Communist-led American cities from a barrage of Russian cruise missiles, but which MoD experts note will be “to little, to late” to save them.

And with new and shocking polling showing that the American people have lost all hope in their government, their media, their banking institutions, etc., this report states, the outright destruction and elimination of that nations Communist overlords will enable them to experience a new birth of freedom that has long been denied them.

But in their knowing of the vast potential for rebellion among their citizens, the SVR in this report warns, the Obama regime is radically increasing tensions within the United States by creating a series of “false flag” events…which include this week’s Charleston, South Carolina massacre where a crazed white madman gunned down 9 innocent black churchgoers, and which this regimes propagandists are now proclaiming “White America Must Pay For”.

Not being understood by the American people though, MoD historical analysts in this report say, are that the racial tensions being perpetrated upon the American people (both white and black) are by “deliberate design” and being directed by Obama whom the Bloomberg News Service, one day before he was elected President in 2008, warned was a Fabian Socialist.

Even more exact, this same Bloomberg News Service article noted exactly what a Communist-oriented Obama would do once he took power: “So here is the playbook: The left will identify, freeze, personalize and polarize an industry, probably health care. It will attempt to nationalize one-fifth of the U.S. economy through legislative action. They will focus, as Lenin did, on the “commanding heights” of the economy, not the little guy.”

Though Obama’s Fabian Society has long sought to hide their Communist actions and thoughts to “advance the principles of socialism via gradualist and reformist means”, this MoD-SVR report further warns, the American people should know these vile peoples true intention…and as they themselves outlined in their 1913 “disputed” publication, A Racial Program for the Twentieth Century, which horrifically stated:

We must realize that our Party’s most powerful weapon is racial tension. By propounding into the consciousness of the dark races, that for centuries have been oppressed by the whites, we can mold them to the program of the Communist Party … In America, we will aim for subtle victory.

While enflaming the Negro minority against the Whites, we will instill in the Whites a guilt complex for the exploitation of the Negroes. We will aid the Negroes to rise to prominence in every walk of life, in the professions, and in the world of sports and entertainment. With this prestige, the Negroes will be able to intermarry with the Whites, and begin a process which will deliver America to our cause.”

And to the “grave danger” facing the Federation in even considering an atomic strike against the Communist Regions in America, this report says, it bears noting that Obama’s Under Secretary for Defense, Robert Scher this past month floated the idea of a US nuclear first strike against Russia.

Not to be forgotten either, this report concludes, should President Putin give the order to strike America’s Communist Regions with the Federations atomic weapons in order to save the United States from itself, it will be the second time in history it has done so…as during the US Civil War (1861-1865), Tsar Alexander II ordered the full power and might of the Russian Fleet to America’s shores to protect it from the imminent and planned invasion of British troops from Canada, and French troops from Mexico, who were poised to invade the United States and destroy it forever.

Predictions 2015: Disastrous Christmas, World War 3, US Economic Collapse – Celente

‘Russia Would Attack NATO Only In Mad Person’s Dream’ – Putin

Russia is not building up its offensive military capabilities overseas and is only responding to security threats caused by US and NATO military expansion on its borders, Russian President Vladimir Putin told Italian outlet Il Corriere della Sera.

Speaking to the paper on the eve of his visit to Italy, Putin stressed that one should not take the ongoing“Russian aggression” scaremongering in the West seriously, as a global military conflict is unimaginable in the modern world.

“I think that only an insane person and only in a dream can imagine that Russia would suddenly attack NATO. I think some countries are simply taking advantage of people’s fears with regard to Russia. They just want to play the role of front-line countries that should receive some supplementary military, economic, financial or some other aid,” Putin said.

Certain countries could be deliberately nurturing such fears, he added, saying that hypothetically the US could need an external threat to maintain its leadership in the Atlantic community. “Iran is clearly not very scary or big enough” for this, Putin noted with irony.

Russia’s President invited the journalists to compare the global military presence of Russia and the US/NATO, as well as their military spending levels. He also urged them to look at the steps each side has taken in connection with the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty since the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Russia’s military policy is “not global, offensive, or aggressive,” Putin stressed, adding that Russia has“virtually no bases abroad,” and the few that do exist are remnants of its Soviet past.

First Ever Russian-Egyptian Naval Drills to Be Held in Mediterranean

The first Russian-Egyptian naval exercises will be held in the Mediterranean Sea from June 6 to June 14, the Russian Defense Ministry’s press service said Saturday.

The drills are aimed at strengthening military cooperation between the two countries’ navies to promote security and stability at sea, according to the statement.

“Russian-Egyptian naval exercises ‘Friendship Bridge 2015′ will be held in the designated area of the Mediterranean Sea from June 6 to June 14, 2015.”

As part of the exercises, Russian and Egyptian warships, working with air support, are expected to protect shipping lanes from various threats and conduct live fire tactical training.

In May, Russian-Chinese first ever naval drills were also held in the Mediterranean. The crews involved completed a wide range of tasks – from maneuvering to anti-submarine and radio-electronic warfare. The active phase of the Naval Cooperation 2015 joint exercises between the Russian and Chinese Navies ended on May 21.

US Deploys B-52 Nuclear Bombers to Baltic Sea War Games

US Deploys B-52 Nuclear Bombers to Baltic Sea War Games

The United States has deployed three B-52 nuclear bombers to take part in military exercises with NATO partners in the Baltic region amid heightened tensions with Russia.

“The deployment demonstrates the United States’ ability to project its flexible, long-range global strike capability,” the US Strategic Command said in a statement on Friday.

Scores of ships and aircraft from 17 countries are participating in Baltic Sea naval drills as part of exercise BALTOPS, which began on Friday and will run through June 20.

Overall, 5,600 troops, 49 ships, 61 aircraft and a submarine will be involved in the US-led military exercises.

The war game comes as Washington seeks to reassure European allies amid heightened tensions with Russia over the crisis in Ukraine.

Russia views the drills as an indication of NATO’s encroachment on its borders and has organized a series of large-scale military exercises over the past months in the Baltic, Black Sea and Arctic region to show its military prowess.

The Obama administration is considering new “deterrence strategies” to prevent Russia from meddling in Europe.

The approach involves boosting militaries of allies and potential partners, expanding the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and increased training exercises, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The measures stem from a recognition that sanctions alone have failed to make Russian President Vladimir Putin reverse course.

“It’s clear the sanctions are working on the Russian economy, but what is not apparent is that that effect on his economy is deterring Putin from following the course that was evidenced in Crimea last year,” Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said Friday in Germany.

US President Barack Obama meets with leaders of European allies this weekend in Germany, where he is expected to push for a tougher stance against Moscow.
