Obama Demands Russia Leave G-8; June Summit Cancelled While Ukraine Deploys Army Along Borders

Tyler Durden's picture




 

UK Prime Minister David Cameron stated that it is "absolutely clear" that the G-8 Summit scheduled for June in Sochi, Russia will not go ahead. But it is President Obama that appears to be pressing the hardest for major changes:

  • OBAMA SAID TO PRESS ALLIES TO SUSPEND RUSSIA FROM G8: WSJ

This comes at a time when Ukraine forces are being withdrawn from Crimea and deployed to North, South, and East borders of the region.  Meanwhile, Ukraine is taking its soldiers pulled from Crimea and deploying them along all other borders.

  • UKRAINE'S PARUBIY: PRIORITY IS TO PROTECT BORDERS, LEAVE CRIMEA
  • UKRAINE DEPLOYS ARMY TO NORTH, SOUTH, EAST BORDERS: PARUBIY
  • UKRAINE HAS MOBILIZED MORE THAN 10,000 PEOPLE, PARUBIY SAYS

David Cameron says G-8 Summit Scrapped...

There will be no G8 summit in Russia this year, David Cameron said in a further ign of efforts to isolate Moscow over the Ukraine crisis.

 

The Prime Minister said it was "absolutely clear" the meeting could not go ahead.

 

Speaking in The Hague ahead of a meeting of G7 leaders, he said: "We should be clear there's not going to be a G8  summit this year in Russia. That's absolutely clear."

 

Preparations for the planned June summit in Sochi had already been suspended as a result of Russia's actions in neighbouring Ukraine.

And Obama is calling for Russia to be kicked out of the G-8.

What is Obummer's problem? The Crimeans overwhelmingly voted to leave Ukraine. East Ukraine will probably do the same, especially now that they were informed their gas prices will rise 40%, bank accounts over 100K HRY will be "taxed," billions are owed to China and Russia, etc. I wouldn't be surprised if the rest of Ukraine votes to leave as well.

You'd have to be a fool to want to stay in the west at this point.

- That Russia will leave Ukraine

- That he be allowed to redo his NCAA tournament bracket

- That everyone should quit making fun of him

- That his approval rating be raised to 60%

- That my wife should start having regular sex with me

Maybe if he also held his breath it would be move effective.

I expect we will soon see a meeting of the G77 nations. Basically all nations which have a growth trajectory and leaving out the bankrupt and moribund US vassal states.

The G77 will likely seek to avoid use of US dollar (blink your eyes once and find your banks outlawed or your finances subject to some oval office Diktat). Blink your eyes twice and you find all those fiat assets are now 50% of par value. Blink your eyes three times and you are looking up at at incoming Hellfire missile with "Freedom and Liberty" written on the nose cone.

Why would any nation in their right mind put up with this crap?

As for "FU THE EU" I understand some folks truly enjoy being bent over.

I think that this might be a part of a planned Hegelian Dialectic being played out with the Puppetmasters whom are behind it making Bank.

 

Of course it is just "mere speculation" as I have no direct evidence to verify my belief.

the sooner China and Russia formally announce they will no longer be using the debt coupon dollar the better off the entire world will be...now, on another front....

 

"According to the December 31, 2013 financial filing known as the Call Report that JPMorgan made with Federal regulators, it has tied up $10.4 billion in illiquid, long term bets on the death of a large segment of its employees.

The program is known among regulators as Bank Owned Life Insurance or BOLI. Federal regulators specifically exempted BOLI in passing the final version of the Volcker Rule in December of last year which disallowed most proprietary trading or betting for the house. Regulators stated in the rule that “Rather, these accounts permit the banking entity to effectively hedge and cover costs of providing benefits to employees through insurance policies related to key employees.” We have italicized the word “key” because regulators know very well from financial filings that the country’s mega banks are not just insuring key employees but a broad-base of their employees.

Just four of the largest U.S. banks, JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo and Citigroup hold over $53 billion in investments in BOLI according to 2013 year-end Call Reports. Death benefits from life insurance is purchased at a multiple to the amount of the investments, meaning that $53 billion is easily enough to buy $1 million life insurance policies on 159,000 employees, and potentially a great deal more. Industry experts estimate that the total face amount of life insurance held by all banks in the U.S. on their employees now exceeds half a trillion dollars."

Goldman assured me this Ukraine thing was transient and the US economy was going "re-accelerate"--Whatever that means.  I swear to gawd they come up with this stuff for their muppets drunk on the shitter Sunday night before they mail it out on Mondays.  When I read something written by Schiff, vs something written by Goldman, it is like a 3rd grader named Eric Cartman wrote the Goldman stuff.  Peter goes into detail on the macro, and Goldman just says some dumbshit, won't admit admit they were wrong on the economy, and then says it is going to speed up twice as fast as they had originally wrongly predicted.  Who uses "slam dunk" in a research report--just before getting their face ripped off, anyway?

WTF do these 2 statements taken from the article mean?  Are they redundant?  They are in sequence, so which is it - deployment to N, S, and E borders .... or to all other borders?

Statement 1) This comes at a time when Ukraine forces are being withdrawn from Crimea and deployed to North, South, and East borders of the region. 

Statement 2) Meanwhile, Ukraine is taking its soldiers pulled from Crimea and deploying them along all other borders.

why is Washington going to such surreal and absurd lengths to draw this out? monitors from the Ukraine and NATO have already been quoted, repeatedly, confirming that there is no indication that Russia is massing sufficient military force to launch an invasion nor that they have violated any treaties in terms of size and make up of said forces along the Ukraine border.

yet the MSM is reporting as if the entire Russian army, air force and navy is staged on the border and about to blitzkrieg all of eastern Europe...

I would say this is just typical propaganda driven distraction drivel being spewed to keep john q public focused on the new and improved "evil empire" now that the terrorist thing has pretty much played itself out. after all people might just start questioning whether the amount and type of protection the state is providing is really necessary if there is no eminent threat to the "safety and security" of the homeland.

the problem is that john q public isn't really paying all that much attention to events in eastern Europe and most likely couldn't give a shit less if  Putin rolled tanks all the way to Warsaw. in fact, most people I've spoke to who are paying any attention at all hold a very favorable view of Putin and he may just very well be the first Russian leader to be more popular here in the US than our own teleprompter reader in chief.

needless to say the attempt to cast him as the next Hitler is failing miserably.

yet they still insist on pushing the angle that Russia is going to, at any moment now, rain hell fire and brimstone upon Europe just like back in the good old cold war days when the world was one step away from the apocalypse on a daily basis. 

so either this is a mass scale propaganda stunt to try and foist a (old) new fabled enemy upon us that has suffered an epic fail.

or

Washington is desperately trying to build public support for war with Russia in a last ditch effort to save the petrodollar.

either way this continues to show just how out of touch, delusional and dangerously myopic those who inhabit DC really are.

precipitated the very thing they were trying to deter;

An existential threat to the petro dollar and the evil empire it levers.

Methinks the elites who 'rule' from DC are now so insulated and isolated from reality, most of them do not see their scam is no longer being bought into by increasing numbers of We The People. What is obvious is They no longer represent US.

It reminds me of the Syrian debacle, where Backdoor Barry was shot down in flames.

I am concerned though that Ukraine is a diversion of Russian forces to allow the Banksters to stage an invasion of Syria! Then Iran's flank is exposed. Now we are talking War.

I had to travel yesterday and last weekend. I have seen numerous military convoys. Anyone else notice any extra activity, especially if you live near a base? I think we still have troops in Jordan.

Who knows? It is getting a bit scary.
