  • Russia throws down the gauntlet: energy supply to Europe cut off;  petrodollar abandoned as currency war escalates

    NaturalNews) There are some big moves taking place on the global  stage that you need to know about, as this could all lead to World War  III.

    Yesterday Russia cut off its natural gas supply to Europe,  "plunging the continent into an energy crisis 'within hours' as a dispute with  Ukraine escalated," reports the Daily Mail. [1]

    "This morning, gas  companies in Ukraine said that Russia had completely cut off their supply. Six  countries reported a complete shut-off of Russian gas shipped via Ukraine  today, in a sharp escalation of a struggle over energy that threatens Europe  as winter sets in."

    Alternative media warned about this weeks ago

    This was  all predicted in advance as a move toward World War III. The  website All News  Pipeline <> summarizes the predictions which were widely  printed across the alternative media weeks ago.

    Former U.S. Treasury  Secretary Paul Craig Roberts had also warned in advance of a "Black Swan  Event" such as Russia cutting off energy supplies to European nations as a  prelude to war.

    Europe depends heavily on natural gas supplies from  Russia which are piped into the region via Ukraine. This is especially true in  the winter when gas is needed for heat.

    Russia pulls out of the petrodollar

    In  addition to cutting off natural gas supplies to Europe, Russia has also "just  pulled itself out of the petrodollar," reports Zero  Hedge <> . [2]

    The story quotes <> stating  that Russia "may unseal its $88 billion Reserve Fund and convert some of its  foreign-currency holdings into ruble."

    This is further explained by Mac  Slavo at <> who explains, "What we are seeing are  the strategic moves that will eventually catalyze the next great war. And make  no mistake, this is exactly what's in store for the world should these  escalations continue."

    An escalation into war?

    What's happening here is a radical escalation of the global  currency war in which Russia and China are attempting to route the U.S.  dollar and ultimately destroy the U.S. empire.

    Part of this strategy  involves dumping the petrodollar as a global reserve currency and reverting to  alternative currencies backed by something more than just hot air. Further  evidence of this strategy is found in the explanations  on King  World News <> which states that China is moving to back  its Yuan currency with gold!

    This explains why China has been buying up the world's  physical gold supplies. The U.S., meanwhile, has empty gold vaults and a fiat  paper currency backed by nothing but hot air, empty promises and endless debt.  The whole world knows this, and nations like Russia <> are  positioning themselves to take advantage of the massive currency collapse  that's eventually coming to the dollar.

    Just yesterday, the Swiss franc  skyrocketed 30% in mere minutes as the central banks controlling the Euro  neared announcing their own massive money printing scheme that would flood the  global markets with Euros. As Associated Press wrote, "Bowing to the  inevitable, Switzerland has ditched an increasingly expensive policy to limit  the export-sapping rise of the Swiss franc -- a decision that propelled the  currency a whopping 30 percent higher against the euro within minutes."  [3]

    Oil prices manipulated as an act of economic  warfare

    As part of the U.S. effort to wage war on Russia, oil prices have  been artificially lowered with the help of the Saudis (who have strong ties to  the Bush family and whose royalty was magically evacuated out of the U.S. on  private jets during the 9/11 terror attacks) working in conjunction with U.S.  forces. The aim is to devastate the Russian economy, harm the Russian currency  and even cause damage to Venezuela where food  supplies are now wiped out and grocery stores are being guarded by armed  government military personnel <> .

    Of course, you won't  hear a word of this from the hypnotic, droning mainstream media which tells  you everything is just fine. It isn't. Massive geopolitical strategies and  schemes are being unleashed right now, behind the scenes, and a currency  war is under way at the highest levels.

    The days are numbered for the dollar as the world's reserve  currency

    The  world, it seems, is fed up with the U.S. abusing its reserve currency status  by pumping up the money supply with billions of dollar a month in new fiat  money. (Courtesy of the Federal Reserve and its bankster bailouts) The world  is also fed up with the U.S. meddling in international affairs in Ukraine, the  Middle East and hundreds of individual nations where the U.S. empire maintains  a military occupation of one kind or another.

    Right now the Russians  are targeting NATO countries with the energy cut-offs, sending a message that  any nation which allows its soil to be used by western forces to host missile  systems will find its economy crushed by a lack of available  energy.

    The U.S., meanwhile, has dangerously backed Putin into a corner  from which we can only expect an aggressive backlash engineered to protect the  national interests of Russia itself.

    Remember how the U.S. was drawn into World War II?

    You may or may not recall that it was a U.S.-led energy blockage  against Japan in the 1940's that ultimate forced Japan to launch its surprise  attack on Pearl Harbor. In a similar pattern, the U.S. and NATO nations are  currently forcing devastating economic sanctions onto Russia, driving the  nation into a rapidly-dwindling set of defensive options, one of which  includes the deployment of nuclear weaponry.

    This situation is beyond  "serious." It is at red alert levels, and you need to be monitoring websites  like <> to  catch the headlines you won't find in the mainstream media.

    Steve  Quayle has consistently been decades ahead of everyone  else with his predictions on biological  weaponry, currency <> wars  and much more. His foresight is so far-reaching, in fact, that it's almost a  curse because a society blinded by the distractions of current affairs will  never value the accurate warnings of a man who sees a decade or more into the  future. Western culture is far too short-sighted and self-possessed to take  seriously the words of a man who warns that the good times buoyed by debt and  delusion won't last forever.

    In a world of deceit, all truth-tellers are  condemned

    Even now, we are living in a time when all truth-tellers are  condemned as heretics. Any  person quoting accurate economic statistics, for example, is called a "doom  and gloomer." Anyone questioning the sanity of a government that's $18  trillion in debt and spending wildly on ballooning entitlement programs is  labeled "anti-government." We are living in a time that's so bizarre, almost  everything the average American believes to be true is factually false. The  mainstream news is the wool that's pulled over their eyes to blind them from  the truth, to paraphrase The Matrix.

    The real truth is that  our world is headed straight into unprecedented crisis and conflict. When you  wake up tomorrow, realize you are living in the run-up to a collapsed economy  that exists in a world where the most powerful nations on the planet have  already declared a covert war <> on the  U.S. empire (and can't wait to bring it down).

    The  artificially-inflated luxury lifestyle currently experienced by the U.S.  population -- complete with welfare state entitlement programs -- will come to  an end for the simple reason that it's all funded by artificial money  creation. That artificial money creation, in turn, is only possible because  the dollar is currently the world's reserve currency, providing a very large  money supply base ("buffer") that insulates America from the more immediate  effects of fiat currency creation. But as the world abandons the petrodollar <> ,  the ability of the U.S. to print its way to bigger government, bigger  entitlements and bigger debt will utterly collapse.

    Something big is "fast approaching" - Ron Paul

    It is not  a coincidence that bankers keep showing up "suicided" (i.e. killed off)  lately. It is also not a coincidence that the U.S. domestic police forces have  been arming up with military weapons from the front lines of all-out war in  the Middle East. Law enforcement is arming up for something big. Really  big.

    As Ron Paul recently wrote in a widely-cited column, "A major  geopolitical or economic event, greater than the crisis of 2008, is fast  approaching. The precipitating event will be a surprise to the majority of  politicians and economists. There are many "next shoe to drop" possibilities,  and one could happen any time or any place."

    Ron Paul goes on to  explain:

    Sanity will not return to US leaders until our financial  system collapse -- an event for which they are feverishly working... Debt in  all categories will continue to increase at unsustainable  rates...

    The riots to come

    Everyone at the highest levels of the U.S. government knows that  the current entitlement state debt system is wildly unsustainable. They also  know that the day after the EBT cards (food stamps) stop working, every  U.S. city will collapse into chaos and mass rioting.

    Although this  event could still be years away, its arrival is inevitable. And when it does  happen, it will happen suddenly, without warning. That means most people will  be completely caught off guard. And when they are caught off guard, they will  panic.

    I pity the people who do not realize what's happening on the  global stage. All those people obsessed with Hollywood movies, celebrities,  fashion and television will be completely taken by surprise when  the currency  war <> escalates. They have no idea how close they are to  helplessness, hunger and desperation. They have no awareness of reality, no  real-world skills and no ability to take care of themselves.

    That's why  I recently declared 2015 to be the Year of Self-Reliance. This is  the year when it's becoming increasingly urgent to learn and practice skills  for living away from the systems that are subject to failure. This is a time  to learn how to augment your current lifestyle with some home food production,  water collection and storage, off-grid energy sources, home-based medicine  production and more.

    Interestingly, many Russians already have  these skills, so if economic devastation strikes both the USA and Russia,  there's no question that the Russian citizens will do far better in terms of  survival and self-reliance. Russia, even with all its own problems, at least  does not criminalize home gardening, fresh cow's milk and home-produced herbal  remedies.
