    Russia has unloaded massively US dollars and treasury bills. And has increased the purchase of gold. The 5th column NATO sycophant
    media in Russia is trying to paint this as evidence of looming collapse. Orwellian propagandists trying to sell 2+2=5. By unloading
    US financial instruments, Russia is making itself additionally immune from US sanctions blackmail. These 5th column turds should worry
    more about their masters (the USA) losing from naked aggression. America does not have the power to push both Russia and China
    around. Whether Uncle Scumbag likes it or not a new world order is emerging and he's not in charge.

    With all of the recent events, I think that oil prices are going to go up, does anyone think the same thing will happen?

    The large price drop we have seen since 2014 is a scam. US and EU futures traders use BS metrics such as gasoline stocks to speculate
    on crude oil demand and supply. This is simply inane. So it must be a racket. Right now US gasoline stocks are increasing but world
    oil production is dropping: and we see the oil price dropping. This scam cannot last since the real availability of oil is from
    production and not US consumption.

    Global conventional oil production peaked in 2005. It is non-conventional, flash in the pan production from previously ignored plays
    such as the Bakken that has produced a mostly US-based surge in production. These tight oil (and gas) plays are not ever going to
    replace the conventional reservoir volume. So they will not keep oil prices low for decades. In fact, the Bakken and other tight oil
    plays in the USA are already peaking. Once they start to decline we will see massive upward pressure on oil prices. Don't let the
    counting of ethanol and biodiesel in "oil production" by the EPA and IEA fool you. The same goes for the misnamed "shale oil". There is
    no such thing as true shale oil. Shale is very young rock that only contains kerogens which are oil precursors that need to be cooked
    to produce oil (this happens naturally over millions of years in conventional deposit formation). Tight oil from the Bakken is routinely
    convoluted with shale even though it is "shale-like", i.e. low prorosity, old sedimentary rock that is capping/trapping a Dolomite
    layer with the conventional oil deposit from above and below. Fracking is used to break through this shale-like rock to reach the
    porous Dolomite domains.

    No kerogen to synthetic crude oil production is happening anywhere on the planet. So if you see a reference to Green River deposits
    you know that you are being sold snake oil. The problem with high oil prices is that they trigger recession. So the oil price will
    undergo wild oscillations in the future as supply constraints try to drive it up and demand (recession) collapses will drive it down. We
    are entering a brave new world of economic instability and impoverishment.

    The only corruption that matters is the one you never hear about. That there is all this chatter about these incidents means

    1) they were exposed
    2) they were handled by law enforcement
    3) they no longer matter

    So instead of fixating on "Putin's failure", these amateur journalists and their NATO fanboi equivalents in Russia should report
    on the real story: the increasing exposure of fraud and the increasing number of crooks either busted or running away to
    NATO for safety.

    In NATO, corruption has been legalized via

    1) lobbying which overrides politicians' accountability to their constituents.
    2) absurd bidding procedures for state contracts which enable oligopoly bidders to collude and game the system; instead
    of lowest bid the state pays whatever price the oligopoly decides. There is no competition between the bidders and
    they merely shuffle around who gets to win this year. Naturally, predictable contracts enable this sort of racket.
    3) even with the non-functional bidding process above, there are still cases where politicians over-ride bidders they
    don't like because lobbyists from Lockheed, Boeing, etc., enable these monopolies to win all the time.
    4) we do hear of cases of bank managers defrauding their employers of millions and similar cases in the west too. According
    to all the NATO fanbois that is not an issue, but when it happens in Russia it is the end of the world.

    It is clear that Putin is cleaning house. This is likely due to his coming departure from the active politician role. His
    successor should face a much less daunting task than Putin did in 1999.

    I knew this was gonna come up as soon as I read about that Roscosmos chief who fled.

    As KVS said, Russia isn't afraid of actually reporting this news anymore. It's because of Medvedevs program to fight corruption that the corrupt officials are fleeing. Former economic minister is behind bars as example.

    There will be even more news as US and EU are funding people to go against Russia. It's same in China. No matter what, there will be corrupt people especially those with authority. Eventually they will smoke out most of them and this is what is happening. They are at least being proactive. $1B for Rostec is not a lot. Compared to US and Chinese losses in corruption, it's a drop in a bucket. But it's still bad and should be $0. But it never will be

    Corruption is partly consequence of Mediocre leadership..
    When the people recruiting Managers for a company are mediocre.. de-motivated
    ,boring and weak , they will hire mediocre ,demotivated people ,that will more likely
    become very corrupt and steal at the earliest opportunity.. In other words.. Putin IS TO BLAME..
    for making alliance with Medvedev ,and for getting incompetence corrupt people in control
    of Government ..

    A competent leader , is someone that is self confident person ,Strong ,confident on himself
    and that that INSPIRE many to follow by his example.. So when you have people that steal ,
    from your job.. is because that person was recruited by a mediocre manager and not motivated ,not inspired by the Company to do a good job. People who love their jobs and feel proud about it ,and enjoy what they do ,and that have a high competent and strong BOSS..are far more probable ,to be loyal to their country ,nation and company he works//  

    So corruption => IS many times consequences of Mediocre leadership..  Good leaders will have no problem finding other good leaderss that will be 100% loyal to the state.   So Putin is to blame in part for the mediocre leadership ,he  helped to get in power in Russia.

    5th column.. =when people feel the nation is behind and doing bad.. people will start looking greener
    the grass in the other side. Putin lack of vision for developing Russia ,as a real alternative to United
    States ,is the reason why 5th Column exist..  While Putin gave gas discounts to Ukrainians.. to get their friendship and keep Ukraine in the Russian orbit.. The Americans were giving Ukrainians things they really liked and enjoyed and cheered... as it is the American culture.. their Internet , their music and their entertainment industry , that combined with US strong image in the world , more ambitious space exploration program.. and their image of being world stronger economy , that sold out Ukrainians to the Western side..    We feel Europeans.. we are not Russians.. This is what Both Poroshenko and Georgian government have said many times.. Russia lost Ukraine simply because
    of weakness and lack of Vision of Putin.. in how to counter the west. and transform Russia into a better alternative to the west.


    This is what Russia should have been doing. Following the example of China and huawei , Now even UK ,which is top US ally.. is not following US demands.. and opens the door to CHina technology ,something that will cause massive damage to American companies in communications ,massive damage to US economy too..,that will not lead anymore anywhere in the world.. or in  smartphones..Leading in High Tech for civilian industry ,,but with Putin the "Great" in power, he was more interested in breaking Wheat farming records and winning Olympic medals ,because it promote "patriotism" and because "promote friendship " too...  So Putin bet $65 billions dollars ,that leading in Sports and farming was going to make Russia stronger and more respected by the west... Haven't anyone notices how US and Russia relations have improved dramatically after they won the Gold Medals in Sochi? lol1

    Sarcasm aside.. This is an example of how CHINA by LEADING the World , by being a leader in high tech.. a perfect example how defeating American High tech business ,can OPEN you the doors ,with even top US allies... and break the Siege of American sanctions..Russia can be 100% sanctions proof , if he breaks US Business high tech domination , in the things they are more popular and influence more the world..  Russia economy needs to be focused on High Tech and not in Tourism or Oil  banana records ... Russia needs an economy that challenges directly American most popular high tech companies.  same way China is doing in Huawei vs Apple.. take this to a new level ,with many other US companies like Microsoft ,Intel ,Xbox ,new Internet , Entertainment industry and for sure you can never get enough of leading in Space .. the more the better.. there is not such a thing like too much lead in space..

    Trump own Economic Advisor , told that the day China leads in High Tech ,AI and Robotics.. it will be game over
    for American Economy.. and they will never recover again..  So This is where Russia need to fight.. where Russia needs to lead..  So that US is forced to Ban not only CHinese high tech from their market ,but also Russian ones..
    and to see how the rest of the world.. Don't Follow US sanctions.. so US will be isolating itself from progress and technology for losing their lead. and this can't be done forever ,eventually US allies will question US lead in the world ,and will realize ,they don't need to follow US leadership ,when there are better things in Russia or China.. If US lose the lead in high tech and Space.. it will be game over for the American empire. nobody follow  second best.. people like to follow leaders.. And this is how you break NATO and the American system.. by surpassing US most popular high tech business.. and how you break US leadership in the world . And their system.

    China can damage US economy big ,Because they have Business leadership..  China is the only country in the world fighting for real the American system ,the American empire.. and this is what PUTIN should be doing..
    Putin "Strategy" to damage US economy..  Is turning the other cheek .when Russia slapped in the face , be polite and look weal ,to try to earn world sympathy.. through weakness. Because what Putin is doing doesn't work. Russia represent barely 2% of US economy ,this is how mediocre is Putin's Russia influence over United States..and
    Russia ending the use of dollars will not harm in any remote way American economy... So it is shameful and embarrassing to see Putin bragging about Olympics gold medals , agriculture records..as a "proof" of how strong
    is Russia.. Where the idiot needs to compete is in BUSINESS.. to target American top high tech industry.. this is where it hurts them. Because the day US lose completely the high tech Business leadership ,and its Entertainment industry leadership ,,it will be the day ,they will lose their leadership image in the world.. and so nations will have no reason to follow US ,if Russia and CHina business are way better..more advanced across the entire spectrum.
    Russia don't need to win a single medal in any sports at all in any sport.. the medals Russia needs are Space exploration medals , and a  post industrial business revolution that is aimed to provide an alternative or completely defeat American business.. This is how you fight the US empire.. with Business Leadership.. Huawei in just 2 years.. have done damage to US economy and US leadership  ,than Putin 20 years in power.. No

    Putin is terrible leader ,completely clueless ,in understanding from Where its adversaries gets their world influence
    and leadership.. is not competitive olympics sports what Putin needs to promote..this is good for people who don't want a strong education and wants easy money doing meaningless things.. but what Putin needs to promote is Education and Science instead.. that people use their brains and not symbolic games as sports is ,to transform Russia economy from a third world banana/oil country commodities like. .as it is now.... to a Advance High Tech and Space business exporting economy .. Russia Almost everything it needs to replace United States . The only missing is a Strong Leader ,that don't have , to lead the country into a complete reinvention of itself.. into a completely modern hi tech , consumer exporting technology economy.
