Turkey and Russia will seek to speed up the repair of frayed relations when Recep Tayyip Erdogan meets Vladimir Putin for talks in St. Petersburg next month in the wake of the failed military coup against the Turkish president.

Russia “isn’t just our close and friendly neighbor, but also a strategic partner,” Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Mehmet Simsek, who announced the Aug. 9 visit, said at talks in Moscow with his Russian counterpart Arkady Dvorkovich on Tuesday. “Today, we are here to normalize the situation and our relations as soon as possible and at an accelerated pace since they were disrupted on November 24,” he said, referring to the downing of a Russian warplane by Turkish fighter jets near the Syrian border.

There’ll be no shortage of things for the two presidents to talk about in St. Petersburg, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a conference call Tuesday. Putin discussed Erdogan’s visit with the Russian Security Council on Tuesday, according to the Kremlin’s website.

The attempt to overthrow Erdogan has turbo-charged efforts to restore ties between Turkey and Russia that were already under way after the crisis over the warplane. The rapprochement may even lead to a political realignment in the region. Erdogan has drawn strong criticism from the U.S. and other NATO allies for a sweeping crackdown on tens of thousands of alleged opponents following the failed coup, while Turkey has heaped praise on Russia for its support since the crisis erupted on July 15.

‘Thank You’

Simsek emphasized Turkey’s gratitude to Russia at the talks with Dvorkovich on restoring economic ties, saying: “You supported democracy, supported the government. Thank you very much.”

Russia and Turkey may form an alliance of “two developing economies with an ideology of sovereign values as a union of the deceived against the West,” Alexander Baunov, a senior associate at the Carnegie Moscow Center, said in e-mailed comments.

Violations of rights and freedoms by the Erdogan government after the failed coup mean “moving away automatically from the West, which hasn’t yet decided how much to tolerate in order not to alienate” Turkey, Baunov said. Russia isn’t concerned about such abuses and can show it’s ready to be friends, he said.

‘Ruling Gang’

Turkey received “unconditional support” from Russia over the coup attempt, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said in an interview to Haberturk TV on Monday. He also said anti-U.S. sentiment is rising in the country after the failed revolt.

Putin ordered the Russian government last month to begin lifting sanctions imposed on Turkey after Erdogan sent a letter offering “sympathy and profound condolences” to the family of the pilot who died when Turkey shot down his plane during the November mission to bomb Islamic State and other militants in Syria.

Putin had accused Turkey of a “stab in the back” for downing the jet and railed against the “ruling gang” in Ankara, as Russia retaliated with a ban on charter flights that harmed tourism and sanctions on imports of some Turkish fruits and vegetables. In December, Russia directly accused Erdogan’s family of being involved in illegal oil trading with Islamic State, a charge Turkey rejected.

Trade Decline

Turkey said the warplane was shot down after crossing into its territory and ignoring warnings. Russia insisted its aircraft never left Syrian airspace. Putin turned the war in Syria in President Bashar al-Assad’s favor after ordering Russian airstrikes against militants, while Turkey wants Assad to stand down as part of any settlement.

The ban on charter flights contributed to Turkey’s record drop in foreign-tourist arrivals in May. There was a 92 percent decline in Russian visitors as the number of overall arrivals fell by 35 percent compared with a year earlier. It was Turkey’s 10th consecutive monthly fall in arrivals, the longest streak of year-on-year declines in statistics that span a decade, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Tourism accounts for 6.2 percent of Turkey’s economic output, according to the Association of Turkish Travel Agencies, and 8 percent of employment.

Trade between Russia and Turkey fell by 57.2 percent in the first five months of 2016 compared with a year earlier, to $6.1 billion, according to Russian Federal Customs Service data.

Turkish Stream

Trade volumes with Turkey will rise, though they won’t rebound to previous levels quickly, Russian Economy Minister Alexei Ulyukayev told reporters in Moscow after talks with his Turkish counterpart Nihat Zeybekci on Tuesday. The Turkish food embargo should be lifted gradually and it may take some time, he said.

Turkey confirmed interest in resuming the Turkish Stream gas-pipeline project, Alexander Medvedev, deputy chief executive officer of Gazprom PJSC, told reporters after taking part in talks between Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak and Zeybekci. A decision on an agreement will be made after Putin and Erdogan meet, he said.

Russia shelved talks in December on the planned Black Sea link that would make Turkey a linchpin in Europe’s energy supplies by 2020, with Gazprom saying the route was still possible if political relations improved.

BREAKING: TURKEY MILITARY COUP IN PROGRESS

Source: Covert Geopolitics

What we have expected a few months ago is happening. Several reports have said that the Turkish military coup has succeeded in removing dictator Erdogan from power.

As of the time indicated, Erdogan loyalist forces claim to have neutralized the attempted coup and have arrested its plotters…

Cumhurbaşkanlığı Külliyesi’ne girmeye çalışan FETÖ/PDY mensubu 3’ü rütbeli 13 asker gözaltına alındı.

There’s a possibility however that such claim may just be a psywar to dampen the momentum.

What we have expected a few months ago is happening. Several reports have said the military coup has succeeded in removing dictator Erdogan from power.

From The Guardian,

“The full Turkish military statement reads: “Turkish Armed Forces have completely taken over the administration of the country to reinstate constitutional order, human rights and freedoms, the rule of law and general security that was damaged.

“All international agreements are still valid. We hope that all of our good relationships with all countries will continue.”

The Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is on holiday and outside the country. Reuters has quoted a source within his office as saying that he is safe.”

As a consequence, martial law is declared in Turkey.

As in many other coups in the past, background players stay silent while the actions are still developing, only to claim most of the credit later on.

Prior to this, there will already signs of changing policies from the West and Europe.

The White House, for instance, was flip flopping whether Assad must go or not, in conjunction with its indecision regarding coordinating their attacks on ISIS with Russia in the areas near Aleppo and Raqqa.

US State Secretary Kerry, in fact, visited Moscow very  recently.

Whichever this recent development goes from here, it’s very clear dictator Erdogan is losing control of his country, proof of which is his recent apologetic stance on last year’s shooting down of one Sukhoi Su-24 bombing ISIS positions in Syria which resulted to the death of one Russian pilot.

Aside from the fiat monetary scam and bloodsoaked petrodollar, another significant source of funds for the Nazionist Khazarian Mafia is the “healthcare” industry which registered a whopping $3.09 trillion in 2014, and is projected to soar to $3.57 trillion in 2017, in the US alone. We believe that this is just a conservative figure.

The Dismantling Of The Illegal Crime Syndicates Monetary System | Crashing Oil Prices and the Conspiracy to Free Us from Debt Slavery

There does seem to be a systematic dismantling of the monetary system underway. As I’ve mentioned in my article The Demise of the Petro Dollar we’ve seen many countries take a stand against the illegal crime syndicate’s corrupt and inequitable monetary system. People are sick and tired of the same old, same old. Most of the world wants real authentic change and with all the information that has been released this year alone, it seems change is something that is inevitable.

The Russians discovered 12,000 oil tankers from the Turkey-Iraqi border heading to Turkey. They’ve also bombed 2,000 of these oil tankers on November 18th and are still in the process of destroying more of these tankers. Putin appears to be taking a much more aggressive approach with the Khazarian Mafia’s illegal assets and money making schemes. They are stopping the flow of illegal money.

We’ve also seen Putin foil the Khazarian Mafia’s plan to dispose of President Assad in Syria. With the Russian intervention in Syria this has sent a message across the world that the Russians have drawn the line in the sand and told the Khazarian backed United States Corporation that they shall not pass!

The Russians and the Khazarian Mafia have been in a blood fued for the past 995 years. This Blood Feud against Russia is based on the Khazarian’s rage against the Russians for helping the Persians(Iran) destroy Khazaria approximately 1020 AD because it had become a criminal nation of thieves, murderers and identity impersonators and had not heeded its warnings to clean house from top to bottom. Which is why we’ve seen Russia break away from the Khazarian Mafia, because they know they don’t have their best interests in mind. In fact, they have NO ONES best interests in mind. They are criminals and there is no honor amongst thieves.

With the formation of the BRICS alliance and Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank(AIIB), nations around the world finally have a alternative to the corrupt banking system of the Khazarian Mafia. No longer will countries be forced to bank with the Khazarian’s unethical, illegal and inequitable banking practices. We the People of the United States should join BRICS. Please sign this petition from Larouche if you agree the United States should join BRICS.

The Khazarian Money Magic system(fractional banking) we have today is creating money out of thin-air. The Khazarian banking system lends out your money in bank accounts to others(upwards to 10x what you have deposited). There is no gold backing the USD anymore thanks to president Nixon.

The Chinese though, have been pushing to become a world currency and they’ve been largely successful because they understand that they need to fix their currency to gold. This prevents fraudulent practices we’ve seen with the Khazarian banking system. The Asian banking system will be much more accountable and equitable.  

The crimes against humanity that have been committed by this illegal crime syndicate are too many to list. It is time that we the people of the world take a stand against this Evil entity. It is time to be bold in our endeavors to dismantle and remove this parasitic organization. Only then can we truly be free, as long as they are still in their positions of power and authority ALL OF HUMANITY IS IN DANGER. We must make it our goal to have these criminals apprehended immediately if not sooner!

We have the winds of change on our side. The forces that govern our lives are reaching out to us. Assuring each and every single one of us that the time for Freedom has arrived. That the Brotherhood of Man is here. It is within us all, We are All One. Let us sing freedom from the mountaintops, let us dream the dreams of dreams, let us overcome this darkness that once threatened to consume us all. Let Freedom and Truth reign now and forever. Because we deserve nothing less!

Gas Prices

Waking Times

With cheap gasoline at the pump, and increased interest rates, you’d think we were just recovering from a bad financial hang-over, but something much more sinister is at place. Don’t worry though, there is a happy ending. A revolution is happening before our eyes.

Oversupply is not the reason that oil is dropping in price faster that Exxon Corporation can say “uh-oh.” Canadian oil is dropping even lower, in some cases to $8 a barrel. Russia is not suffering from these falling oil prices, either, as the mainstream press would convey. Similarly, despite the recent Fed hike in the US interest rate, which is the first in more than a decade, this does not herald an economic turning point, at least not for the debt-slavery system that is currently in place, but that is crumbling. The magic-money system of debt and quantitative easing based on the petro-dollar is on its knees. This was an act of desperation.

Falling oil prices are not driving Moscow to expand its austerity program in an attempt to balance an expected deficit of $38.6 billion in 2016. You can be sure President Vladimir Putin was at least three chess moves ahead of tumbling oil prices. Marek Dabrowski, co-founder of the Center for Social and Economic Research in Warsaw and a professor at Moscow’s Higher School of Economics, recently ran the numbers on the oil-exporting economies and discovered a paradox. Russia is not even close to being the most oil-dependent of these countries.

It gets even more interesting though. China has announced that the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) is up and running as promised late last year. Members of the bank include China, Russia, Denmark, Egypt, Iran, Italy, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Kuwait, and others – noticeably absent is the United States of America.

Moreover, the BRICS Bank, headed by Russia, is also moving forward. A recent Forbes article, titled, “With Russian Official Said to Head BRICS Bank, Will Dollars Get Dissed?” invokes the underlying theme of the silent revolution happening under our noses.

Add to the picture – commerce between Europe and North America has literally come to a halt. For the first time in known history, few cargo ships are in-transit in the North Atlantic between Europe and North America. All of them (hundreds) are either anchored offshore or in-port. NOTHING is moving, reports ZeroHedge. Some claim that shipping companies are demanding to be paid in Chinese yuan, and this is why no goods are moving.

Add these little tidbits:

  • Former Assistant Treasury Secretary Paul Craig Roberts claimed the Federal Reserve doesn’t have any more gold. That’s why they could only give Germany 5 tons of the 1,500 tons it’s holding. In fact, when Germany asked for this delivery, the Fed said no.
  • China has been dumping US debt.
  • Commerce – that is dry goods going from other countries to the US as measured by the Baltic Dry Index, has been greatly slowed if not stopped.
  • China and Russia have been buying up physical gold.
  • 12,000 oil-smuggling trucks have been caught taking Iraq’s ‘liquid gold’ into Turkey for use via ISIS.
  • Russia now has access to cheap oil from Iran.
  • Countries have been clamoring to exit the cabal banking system propped up by US Mafioso banks and criminal drug cartels, as well as a rigged stock market.
  • The US Stock market took a nose dive at the beginning of the year.
  • As Matt Taibi wrote for Rolling Stone last year in an article titled, “Everything is Rigged, Continued: European Commission Raids Oil Companies in Price Fixing Probe,”: “the European Commission regulators yesterday raided the offices of oil companies in London, the Netherlands and Norway as part of an investigation into possible price-rigging in the oil markets. The targeted companies include BP, Shell and the Norwegian company Statoil. The Guardian explains that officials believe that oil companies colluded to manipulate pricing data.”

To many, it is old news that the US Corporate government is bankrupt. The new news is how they are being taken down systematically by the ‘white hats’ and other benevolent interests within our world organizations that are tired of being pushed around by criminals using the petro-dollar, and fiat money.

These signs tell of a larger picture.

Secret bank bailouts are soon to be a thing of the past. So are bank bail-ins. Industry corruption such as the Fifa ‘bribe’ which was funneled via HSBC in Hong Kong came from a US bank fined for a link to Colombian drug cartel will continue to be exposed, and huge fines will be paid. In other cases, bankers representing the cabal will be fired or put in jail.

At the end of 2015, the CEO of Brazil’s largest investment bank was arrested. This was accompanied by huge layoffs at major banks across the US. Regions bank has announced 260 layoffs for 2016. Bank of America, Citibank and other cabal-fronts will also lay off thousands of people this year. As part of a crackdown on corruption, China has also uncovered the largest “underground bank” in the country. Over 370 individuals involved in the scheme have been arrested, according to the People’s Daily, for handling 400 billion yuan ($64 billion) in illegal foreign-exchange transactions. It seems the crime syndicate had tentacles everywhere. Though slow, the preliminary schedule for mass arrests and for the re-chartering of the world’s fraudulent banking system is underway.

With cyber warfare becoming part of leaked news daily, the strategic moves of Putin, and the new banking institutions coming into the fore, we may finally see the end of Cabal rule.
