Western Bankers Have Committed Two Acts of War Against Russia




In the past several days, Western bankers have committed two overt acts of war against Russia, namely, the plunging of oil prices and the recent cutting off of all liquidity to Russian banks. This reminds me of the days before World War II in which the United States followed a doctrine called the eight point plan which was designed to provoke Japan into attacking America so Roosevelt could use this as the excuse to get involved in World War II. As Mark Twain once said, “history doesn’t repeat itself, but it sure does rhyme”.

Ditching the Ruble

Has the American public received any reasonable explanation on how oil prices have plummeted at a time of year when they historically spike in order to price gouge holiday travelers? Of course there isn’t going to be any new revelations on this point. Here is the real story behind dropping oil prices.

Zero Hedge first reported  that brokers are now advising their clients that any existing Russian Ruble positions will be terminated without any further notice because of concerns related to the lack of Russian “capital controls”. At least that is the excuse that Western banks are using to run from the Ruble. The truth of the matter is that the West has declared war on Russia and its BRICS partners for undermining the Petrodollar.


No Turning Back

Ditching the Ruble marks a shift in Western banking strategy directed at the Russians. This change was necessitated because the West’s scheme to plunge the price of oil is not having an immediate effect on Russian economic actions. Although American consumers are reveling in their recent good fate with regard to the collapse of oil prices which have resulted in cheaper prices at the pump, there are some very dire consequences attached to American consumer’s good fortune.

The price of a barrel of oil is reaching the point where it will not be cost efficient to even ship the oil because to ship the oil is becoming more costly than the middle men transporting agents can  make. This will result in an artificial shortage of available gasoline. In the United States, shortages will soon appear and prices will spike to unimaginable levels. This will undoubtedly collapse our fragile economy.

The strategy of dropping oil prices in order to bring the Russians to their knees, will not work says Walker Todd. In a reported conversation with my colleague, Paul Martin, Todd told Martin that the low oil prices will not make Putin immediately blink because of (1) inflation and (2) Putin has a year’s reserve of oil and cash. In other words, the fuse has been lit for World War III. Does anyone think that Putin will allow his reserves to be depleted?


The Time Parameters for World War III

The Russian financial situation is about to go critical, despite their ability to temporarily whether the storm related to falling oil prices. The WSJ is reporting, the next driver of the Russian crisis is unquestionably going to begin in the Russian banking system because as the WSJ stated “…global banks are curtailing the flow of cash to Russian entities, a response to the ruble’s sharpest selloff since the 1998 financial crisis.” In other words, Western banks are cutting off all financial liquidity to Russia. This will soon paralyze the Russian economy.  

Russia’s banks are now isolated from the Western world. This is an act of war! The only question remaining is when will Putin launch a pre-emptive nuclear strike upon the West in order to preserve its economy? Will Putin wait until 25% of his oil reserves are gone? Will he wait until 50% of his oil reserves are spent? Before you answer, keep in mind that Putin will need his oil reserves to fight World War III.

After receiving this news, yesterday, I reached out to my contacts with the information hoping to have these developments debunked. Unfortunately, my sources provided  information which seems to collaborate the fact that we headed for war.


Disturbing Developments

I have learned that leaves for critical military personnel have been canceled effective on January 1, 2015. The leaves are  not uniformly cacanceledcross the breadth of the military. However, I have learned that military leaves for personnel serving in the nuclear command structure and specific elements of the nuclear submarine fleet are now canceled. The implication should be obvious as to what someone as to what the Pentagon believes is coming.

Schlumberger International is the largest oilfield corporation in the world employing 126,000 people in 85 countries. Recently, the son of Texas talk show host, Vinnie Pope, stated that Schlumberger has canceled all travel anywhere in the world. This travel ban began immediately after Thanksgiving. Clearly, Schlumberger is anticipating that something big is ready to happen. One could assume that whatever is coming is related to oil since this is the business of Schlumberger. It is interesting to note as an aside that  four years ago on my talk show, researcher Dianne Hunter reported the interconnections between Schlumberger to the Nature Conservancy and ultimately to the Queen of England.  These connections are worthy of further investigation which will be forthcoming



Clearly, something big is anticipated by people/corporations who are in position to know. I am hopeful that this article will shake the bushes a little bit in order to get a better grasp of the particular nature of what’s coming. One thing is for sure, Putin’s tolerance level for these sanctions will soon be exceeded.

    TEPCO the grossly negligent Japanese nuclear power company continues to lie over and over to the people of Japan and to the world about the true levels of radiation released into the atmosphere, ground and into the Pacific Ocean! TEPCO also continues to dump millions of gallons of radioactive waste into the Pacific Ocean nonstop every single day to contaminate the plant life, insects, fish, ocean life and animals. We are now being told not to eat anyTuna and large fish at all because the radiation levels are unsafe to put into our body’s and Fukushima radiation is now verified to be moving into the coast of California and the beaches will soon be polluted with this radiation! There is now verified proof of DNA damage and mutations throughout the food chain and we humans are next to suffer! And if we don’t detox our bodies suffer we will! Experts recommend to commence detoxing with the natural mineral called zeolite that is proven to safely remove both radiation and heavy metals from the human body.This detox is VERY important to help prevent DNA damage that will cause disease and future ongoing mutations! For more quality information do an online search for the website with the single word Zeolite or search for ( Detox With Micronized Zeolite)

    If Russia is supplying so much oil to Western Europe, how could our sanctions affect the country’s economy so much to where his 1 year of reserve is all he’s got? I was under the assumption they have a lot of their own oil. Additionally, why wouldn’t they just keep buying oil from Iran in exchange for gold?

    Hi Everybody,


    Do you know that, as a ninth religious sign indicative of Jesus’ Return, the Bible prophesies the clarifying of the Truth on every subject, especially on religion (Dan. 12: 4, 10, 12; Isa. 60: 1,2; 52: 6-8; Luke 12: 37; 1 Cor. 10: 11); that Dan. 12: 4, 10 connects the increase of true knowledge and the understanding of the Truth by the righteous with Christ’s Return (Dan. 12: 1-3); that Isa. 60: 1,2 teaches the same thought, and that Isa. 52: 6-8 shows that God’s mouthpieces would see the Truth alike at that time; that our Lord expressly promised in Luke 12: 37 that at His Return He would give the faithful special feasts of Truth, and that 1 Cor. 10: 11 expressly promises special light for God’s people in the end of this Age, and that we being in the end of this Age, this light must be now shining; that the wonderful enlightenment of our times on secular and religious subjects is due to and proves Christ’s Second Presence; that Christ, in proof of His Second Presence, has been shedding light on all secular and religious subjects; that the wonderful inventions and discoveries of our times and the great advances in all branches of secular knowledge for human welfare, are due to the presence of Christ, the Sun of Righteousness, shining with healing in His beams as foregleams of the Millennial Day; that the dark sayings of the Scriptures and the questions on religion that have puzzled earth’s wisest men are now becoming very clear, and that as a result of the light that Jesus is shedding abroad now in the early stages of His Second advent; that this enlightenment is only the Dawn of the Light of God’s Millennial Day which will give perfect knowledge to the world?

    Since China has a strategic partnership with Russia, the chinese government would probably provide credit to Russia. It is nearly impossible to sanction China, because they have huge dollar reserves and provide very important goods to the USA (rear earth metalls, electronics for the military, all kind of consumer goods etc.).

    …and don’t forget, the chinese are pissed off, because there was no ratification of the G20 decision to include the renmimbi into the SDR from 2010 in congress. Furthermore I do not believe, that the chinese like it, to be encircled by US military bases.

  8. John Little December 17, 2014 at 7:54 am

    Great article Dave. Just remember that Saudi Arabia has not increased oil production. And, the recent meeting of OPEC voted to maintain oil production at previous levels.

    This means that the fall in the price of oil is not artificial.

    Having said that, I believe that you are right that we are pushing Russia towards World War III.

    Keep up the good work, Dave.

    Yours in Christ,

    What the article outlines is what I thought. I thought it was economic warfare. I believe history shows economic warfare is followed by a shooting war. Unfortunately everyone I talk to thinks things are fine. I guess cognitive dissonance with help from mainstream media keeps the masses sleeping and pacified. The lights could go out anytime and no one lifts a finger to change the situation. They won’t even talk realistically about it. Pathetic!

  10. Jay December 17, 2014 at 8:42 am

    Don’t always agree with you Dave, but I think you’re spot on about this one.

  11. plowboy December 17, 2014 at 9:54 am

    prior to ww2 japan imported 99% of its oil from America. we were the largest exporters of oil in the world at that time. in june of 1941 president Roosevelt turned off the flow of oil to japan. when they attacked pearl harbor on December 7, 1941 their reserves were at roughly the 50% level. is this any indication of what level putin will allow his reserves to shrink to before the attack? I don’t know, but somewhere between 0% and 100% there is a number that represents the point at which he will most definitely start pushing the teotwawki buttons. God be with all of us and thanks.

  12. knobster December 17, 2014 at 9:55 am

    Any sources for the military leaves being cancelled? My searches come up with 2005 articles.

  13. MassEffect December 17, 2014 at 10:01 am

    Dave, excellent article. I have been following this stuff between Russia and the U.S. for the past two years. I read an interesting article late last night where Lavrov was accusing the West (US) of trying to force regime change in Russia. This is a very serious accusation, which I suspect is very true; this is another act of war.

    Now take into account survellience flights near Russia by NATO and Western forces have increased dramatically for the past few months and the U.S. delivering heavy armor (tanks) to that region, I would say war will happen very soon. I do not see Putin waiting to much longer, due to the amount of reserves his country possesses. He would be a fool to wait to long, unless of course Iran and China will be helping them out. I would not put this out of the realm of possibility.

    On a spiritual front, do not forget, the elites want to bring about another world war in order for the “Mahdi” (anti-Christ) to come onto the world stage and maintain order out of chaos and usher in the one world system.

    Ephesians 6:12King James Version (KJV)

    12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

    People had better wake up and turn to God. The U.S. is fixing to burn and fall into darkness. Whether people want to believe or not, it will not change the fact of events unfolding before our eyes and soon to come to this nation. We have all seen the preparations, to choose to ignore it, is certain death and destruction.

    “My most beloved son I have told you many things today about your country and the one world government. I have told you that your leader is the most evil that has ever run your country. He would make Hitler look good if people knew all he has done to America. He has totally signed America over to the one world people. He is just waiting for the time that is set to collapse the dollar and send America into total turmoil. The Communists said they would take over America without firing a shot. They do not want to destroy America because they already own it and they are already building power plants in the west and selling electric back to America to pay for part of the debt that America owes them.”

    Let the criminals fight their own war and leave the rest of the world out of it. I am sure the Russian and American people feel the same way about this. Start by sending every member of Congress who voted in favor of actions against Russia to be on the front lines.

    Hi Dave,
    I read you daily, and I know that you are under the opinion that both Pres. Obama and Vladimir Putin answer to the same Puppet masters, namely the Western banking cartel. Now some people whom I follow seem to think that Vladimir Putin has had a falling out with the Western banks, and your article would seem to support that conclusion.
    However, in past articles you have stated that they are all on the same team.

    Could you clarify that for me?


  21. Bill G Wilmington, NC December 17, 2014 at 2:01 pm

    The Russian attack would explain why the US is not mentioned in the Bible.
    The attack would make more sense after the Rapture as the US would be weakened and in turmoil. Perfect time to attack.
    Confusing part is I believe that Putin and Obama have the same ELITIST bosses. Maybe this is an Iluminati struggle for power…2 players on the same team struggling for power and control. But the attack with the silent submarines is very real and possible. So I agree we are in trouble but God is in charge so my vote is for imminent Rapture. Please Jesus come soon……

    I have a romer lady-friend in Russia that I correspond with regularly. A month ago, I told her to begin stocking up on survival food. She didn’t. The ruble is sinking like a rock in a pond, and who knows how deep the pond is… I’d like to send her a few hunderd dollars, but that may be impossible. It seems ALL western banks have stopped doing business with Russian banks. These bastards running the world are ruining the world.

  24. Nick December 17, 2014 at 4:19 pm

    The saddest thing is there are numerous people who would take this crap seriously. Russian economy is about equal to Spain. Never gonna happen. Putin is a player in the NWO just like almost all world leaders. The miscreants will be given democracy soon. Merry Christmas!

  25. Panza2u December 17, 2014 at 5:37 pm

    China is in bed with Russia, and has been for awhile now, in fact, they signed a Military agreement. Not only that but you have the Brics Nations in the mix and those Nations will support Russian interests, especially western Europe, because they are dependent on Russian Gas and Petroleum…..now add the Emirates that Russia supports and China’s interests in Africa, Argentina, Cuba, Iran and and. I think the US has bitten off more than it can chew, given that most countries are moving away from the greenback., and the deflated economy. I dont see how they can pose a threat to Russia in their dire circumstances… I doubt very much that the US will provoke Russia into WW3, In fact, WW3 wont involve the US to the extent that you think. Given the state of the US. The US will be off guard when that happens, along with Britain and their allies. There will be no interaction between the US and Russia on a military bases, It wont happen. What we are looking at is a virtual checkmate because both sides are in the same quagmire, a cold war that never ended…….

    God’s Word is unerring. God clearly states in His Word that the Final Babylon (USA) will burn to the ground in one hour, at a time when commerce is taking place in a normal, healthy fashion and at a time when the Final Babylon is still the mightiest nation in the world. There will not be a financial collapse first, God will allow our enemies – His Word states that the entire world hates the USA – to destroy us. My hunch is a preemptive nuke attack from Russia is what will do it.

    The rest of the world will be fighting WWIII, but not the USA, as we will be nothing but ashes. Never to be inhabited again in this age.

    Aside from the weapons of mass destruction, including electro-magnetic Tesla beams that both sides have developed, just considering the basic economics of Russia-China versus US-NATO, the later is bluffing with a pair of twos, the former is holding an aces high full house, maybe even a straight flush.
    And flushing down the toilet is where America is headed.

    I have to ask what Bible some of your readers are reading? The term: “antichrist” only appears four times in the KJV:
    1 John 2: 18
    1 John 2:22
    1John 4:3
    2 John 1:7
    And nowhere is “the antichrist” a who, but always a those…many.

    If one would simply do the conversions and math of Rev.21:16 it would be easily seen that the New Jerusalem won’t fit on the old earth…Where are you going to put a cube with sides 1380 miles in length on this old planet?

    Bring the war on, it will be merciful, quick and painless, and after that wonder of wonders that “eye hasn’t seen nor ear heard…”

    Putin´s economy is severely suffering now, but he has a calculated strategy with China. You view Putin through the lens of Nyquist and all those golytsin followers and that is why you’re Analysis and predictions never hit the mark. He will let America straggle themselves. Once he is fully Independent of the Swift and Western Banking System, China, Russia, Brics, And Middle East countries will announce to the world no more Dollars for oil or any trading. All those 16 Trillion Dollars abroad will be sold (maybe not all at once). Germany and other countries will join the fold and leave the Dollar System. America will experience a Dollar Crash, hyperinflation and a civil war. During this time (it might take a few years to unwind) Russia and China will attack.

    Mary, Mother of Jesus speaks to the world (www.locutions.org)

    MARY, Dec 5th, 2014

    Remain with these teachings that I have given to you. Each one contains my gifts. You will need all of these because the darkness will come from many useless solutions. This darkness will be Satanic and only the Woman can defeat him. By these teachings, I wrap you in my mantle of protection and guide you. Let me speak of both Satan’s darkness and of my light.

    Not since the death of my Son, Jesus, has Satan had such a control over the world. Step by step, he has plotted this moment. At times, his plans were delayed because someone, like Pope John Paull II, rose up to push back the darkness. Yet, his darkness has never been fully overcome, just pushed back and delayed. He has not been slain or bound up. He still roams the world seeking the ruin of souls. This is what lies behind all the current problems.

    No one, not even the Holy Father, can destroy Satan’s kingdom and rout the enemy. The Father had given that power only to me, as his first-born daughter and the mother of his Son. This is the great mystery, whose many parts I have been revealing. Keep all of this in mind. Never forget my words. They will be the only real light in the coming darkness.

    The Crisis of 2015
    Mary, Dec 6th, 2014

    These words must be recorded now so all the world will know that I have issued the gravest warnings. The words must go forth, published openly, “written on the walls” so to speak, so that when they come true, all must say that I had been a true mother and did not hold back my wisdom.

    This is the year of the events. Many, many dangers are present. They are already in the headlines, but I am speaking of new events, surprising events which no one foresees. This is already happening in the racial divide that is now appearing in America, when all thought that the issues had been resolved by the Civil Rights legislation. That is only the beginning of new events.

    These forces are already imbedded in human history, forces that will divide and separate, forces that will break forth in great destruction.

    The greatest events will be the collapse of the economic structures. This will lead to even more enormous problems. There will be rivalries among nations, breakups of friendly cooperation that has been in place for years. The causes of these divisions will vary but when you see various nations pulling away from each other, when you see relationships being strained and even broken, then you know that I have told you ahead of time.

    All of these divisions come from the Evil One. The divisions are not the final steps, but they prepare for greater problems. When nations are together in peace, they can overcome and work out difficult situations. When they are separated by divisions, they cannot adequately respond to new crises, those which they did not foresee.

    These Words Prepare You
    Mary Dec 13th, 2014

    When the events take place, people will see that my words are true. They will have great faith and prepared hearts. Right now, you have no need for the special words. The purpose of speaking now is to prepare you to have faith so you will believe my future words. Right now, your lives continue on as usual and you do not need my special words, which I reserve for the darkness.

    These events have no exact timetable because they do not come from God. They result from evil embedded into human history and into human hearts which can freely choose. If people choose prayer and repentance, the effects will be less and will come later. If people choose selfish goals and sins, the effects will be greater and come sooner. The events will reflect the sins of mankind. God will not cause them.

    By these little locutions, I have prepared all who believe. A series of events will occur that will change much of human life. By telling you ahead of time, I give you faith so that, in the middle of the events, you will believe my daily words and I can lead you. Peace. Always peace. The Lord is near.

    Let us not forget that Putin and Obama are ruled by the same puppet masters behind the scenes. The elite are making the decisions and these two public rulers are on the same side.


  46. Seen2013 December 19, 2014 at 10:09 pm

    “The only question remaining is when will Putin launch a pre-emptive nuclear strike upon the West in order to preserve its economy? Will Putin wait until 25% of his oil reserves are gone? Will he wait until 50% of his oil reserves are spent? Before you answer, keep in mind that Putin will need his oil reserves to fight World War III.”

    Not being well versed in such logistics, I would surmise not more than 20%. This allows the US reserves to flood the market emptying storage of the strategic reserves in addition to allowing Europe’s reserves being depleted as well. This allows 80% to fight a brutal conventional and limited nuclear exchange, and Russia or China for that matter could hurt the US the worst by targeting the chair of OPEC Saudi Arabia whose largest oil importer right now is China and Putin very clearly told the House of Saud before Ukraine and the Olympics if the terrorism occurs Saudi Arabia will have a new real estate dynamic as a parking lot.

    And, yes Putin, Obama, Merkel, and others are playing for the Dummies’ Club or Bastards of Basel. It’s really simple… Most of the world’s elitists are bred to be arrogant, delusional, and tampered with Bismarkianism and Hegelian Dialectic. Basically, think authoritarian as a primary objective and practice gradually implemented in incremental stages through both Astroturf movements like socialism and national socialism (Fascism, Communitarianism, and Communism) to determine the developing power-structure hierarchy and caste system.
    World War III is for all purposes baked into the cake and even by democratic processes the survivors of the Globalists will largely out number any surviving groups as fringe. And, the US is being designed to loss. Russia and China have a build ratio of 1 for every 3 destroyed to US’s 1 for every 10 part by sophistication and part by our gutted industrial infrastructure. It’s about 1 for 5 counting Europe’s, but German-Sino dropped the US Dollar in denominated trade between 2011-12 after Russo-Sino’s initial action around 2009 and expanded since. China’s agreements now includes the remaining BRICS+Germany+Canada+Qatar, and they are Saudi Arabia’s largest oil importer. Basically, China can tell them to jump ship or face the whirlwind.
