Putin Targets America’s Achilles Heel: “He’s Going to Destroy the Stock Markets”

Putin-Target-Americas-Achilles-HeelIn 2012 an elite insider claimed that on or around March 4, 2014 the doomsday clock would ring, the effect of which would be a complete collapse of the U.S. economy. How former Vice Presidential adviser Grady Means came to this conclusion with a specific target date may forever remain clouded in secrecy. But given the state of current affairs around the world today, one can’t help but consider that maybe Grady Means was on to something. With the fight over political and resource control in the Ukraine heating up, is it possible the Means was referring to this very set of circumstances?

We know the U.S. economy is literally on the brink of a collapse. All we need now is a triggering mechanism.

Contrarian investor and commentator Greg Mannarino thinks it could be happening right now, and he explains his highly viable theory in the broadcast below.

In essence, Mannarino warns that Russia’s Vladimir Putin may be using the current geo-political climate to position his pieces on the grand chessboard with the end game being a total wipe out of domestic equity markets and the U.S. dollar itself .

Given the horrid economic fundamentals in the U.S., mounting and un-serviceable debt levels, and the fact that China is now moving lock-step with their Russian counterparts, could we be seeing the final stages of a coordinated strike on U.S. economic and financial interests?

A few more moves and it could be Checkmate:

Putin understands the Achilles heel is this hyperinflated stock market… this man is brilliant.

Since we realize all warfare is based on deception, this backing off of troops here is  a part of the play.

When he re-introduces those troops and makes his move here it’s going to crush the U.S. equity markets and take trillions of dollars out of this market and a lot of peoples’ pockets.

Vladimir Putin is not in any way going to back down to Barack Obama or any of the Western powers. He has no reason to do that. He understands where this going and what he needs to do to make this work here.

(Video via Steve Quayle / Watch at Youtube)

So this is the set up in my opinion.

He’s allowing cash to flow back into the world markets, more specifically into the U.S. equity market. He’s going to re-introduce his troops almost in a Blitzkrieg type fashion and he’s going to destroy the stock markets.

We also know this… Vladimir Putin has been betting against the U.S. dollar for years by acquiring gold, just like you should be doing.

… The debt of the United States is in the biggest bubble in the history of the world. He knows all this.

This relief rally here… I can’t imagine that it’s going to last because he’s going to re-introduce troops here. It’s going to destroy this relief rally and then some.

We’re going to get panic selling… I think it can happen pretty soon.

Vladimir Putin is pulling a huge bluff on everyone right now allowing equities on a global scale to rise, only to reverse this move and crush equity markets which will destroy the United States economy.

The wealth effect that the Fed has created… Vladimir Putin knows that it is nothing more than smoke and mirrors. And he’s going to take advantage of that.

Make no mistake. Vladimir Putin strives to make Russia a global super power. China wants the same. In order for that to happen the United States of America must be crushed, and that starts with destroying our economy. And if that means a temporary destruction of global equity markets then that’s what Russia and China will do. Unlike President Obama, who bases his decisions on political surveys and half baked short-term platitudes, these nations operate with stratagems spanning decades.

For all we know, it was Putin himself who orchestrated the Ukranian coup. He’s a former KGB operative, a brilliant strategist and he comes from the ‘old school’ of Russian thought. Every move is carefully calculated and executed. While President Obama plays checkers, Putin is executing a Réti Maneuver designed to confuse and frustrate his opponent while leaving multiple pathways for the fait accompli.

The majority of informed readers understand that the collapse of America as we know it today is inevitable. It has always only been a question of “when.”

Perhaps Vladimir Putin will soon give us an answer.

    Russian Dollar Dump Could Crash Financial System-John Williams

    “Economist John Williams says if Russia sells its U.S. dollar holdings, it could trigger hyperinflation. Could it collapse the financial system? Williams contends, “Yes, it certainly has a potential to do that. Looking outside the United States, there is something over $16 trillion in cash, or near cash. That’s about the same size as our GDP. . . Nobody has wanted to hold the dollar for some time. The dollar, fundamentally, is weak. It couldn’t be weaker. All the major factors are against it. It’s just a matter of what would trigger the massive selling.”

        “Crimea Parliament votes unanimously to become part of Russia”

        Within the current realpolitik context, this is good news. This is the lesser of two evils.

        The alternative, the greater of two evils, would be for the US/EU Axis of Evil to succeed in expanding its empire eastward from Europe to Russia, and westward from Amerika’s Pacific Coast to China, until it has crushed all rivals.

        If it succeeds, the New World Order will be upon us, and that would be far worse. For example, the survival of Russia at least ensured that Edward Snowden had some place to run.

        • Agreed.

          The voter referendum on endorsing the move will be held later this month. Local voters will have also be given the choice of deciding to remain part of Ukraine, but with enhanced local powers.

          Crimean Vice Premier Rustam Temirgaliev said the referendum will be held March 16. The referendum would consist of two questions. The first would ask whether voters wished to join Russia “as a subject of the [Russian Federation].” The second question would ask whether voters wished to remain a part of Ukraine but as an autonomous republic, as laid out in the country’s post-Soviet 1992 constitution.

          – We must at least continue the currently divided world consisting of Oceania, Eurasia, Eastasia, Panem, the Districts, NAFTA, TPP, IMF, and the Disputed Territories

          The world of Nineteen Eighty-Four Panem Commonwealth exists in a state of perpetual war among the three major powers four major alliances, and five major security zones.

          At any given time, two of the three states are aligned against the third and three of the four major alliances are in civil disputes against four of the five major security zones.

          Goldstein’s book states that the war is not a war in the traditional sense, but simply exists to use up resources and keep the population in line. Victory for any side is not attainable or even desirable, but the Inner Party, through an act of doublethink, believes that such victory is in fact possible.

          Panem’s seat of power is a utopian city, called “The Capitol,” Outside of the Capitol, the nation is divided into twelve federal reserve districts under the hegemony of an authoritarian, totalitarian dictatorship, headed by a tyrannical and cruel dictator

          The Capitol developed the Olympic Hunger World Cup Games as periodic events to punish the citizens of Panem, Eastasia, and Eurasia for their rebellion and to remind citizens of consequences for rebelling against the absolute power of the Capitol.

          The Capitol is the seat of Panem’s brutal, totalitarian government and is located in the western Rocky Mountains of the former United States and Canada. The Capitol is surrounded by twelve outlying districts over which it rules absolutely.[6] The Capitol is the home of the dictatorial President Coriolanus Snow and several major characters.
          Citizens of the Capitol are far removed from the deprivation and open oppression of the twelve Districts, and are generally preoccupied with extravagant fashion, parties, and mass entertainment like the Hunger Games. Most Capitol citizens depicted in the novels appear either oblivious of, or totally unconcerned with, the poverty and desperation that prevails elsewhere in Panem. Compared with the Districts, the Capitol is extremely wealthy and technologically advanced, with citizens enjoying a very high standard of living. Visiting tributes, who have grown up with the constant threat of starvation, are shocked by what they consider wasteful decadence in the Capitol. For example, the selection of dishes served at parties is commonly far greater than one person could sample, so it is usual to provide emetic beverages, allowing guests to continue eating. Due to this extravagant lifestyle, it is rare for Capitol citizens to join the Peacekeepers (described below), as it requires its soldiers to avoid marriage for twenty years and is often considered a punishment to avoid spending time in jail. In addition, residents of other districts who are considered criminals or traitors may be forced into servitude in the Capitol and converted into Avoxes, which is a brutal form of punishment in which the offender’s tongue is surgically removed and therefore can no longer speak.
          Citizens of the Capitol are culturally distinct from those of the Districts, speaking with a characteristic accent and choosing first names of ancient Greco-Roman derivation, with the city itself having a distinctly modernized version of Roman architecture. In the books, the Capitol buildings are described as “candy-colored”, rising in a rainbow of hues. The fashions of the Capitol are exotic and ostentatious, with citizens dyeing their skin and hair with vivid colors, adopting tattoos, and undergoing extensive surgical alteration in the name of style. The Capitol accent is distinctive, said to sound “silly” and effete to people from the Districts; the accent is described as being “high-pitched with clipped tones and odd vowels”. The letter ‘s’ is a hiss and the tone rises at the end of every sentence, as if the speaker is asking a question.[7]
          Residents of the Capitol cannot be chosen as tributes for the Hunger Games, as the Games were instituted as a punishment for the twelve remaining districts of Panem for their failed rebellion. At one time there were thirteen districts, but District Thirteen was destroyed by the Capitol for possible use of weaponry (they were the nuclear weapons district for the country). The Games are an annual cause for celebration in the Capitol; citizens gamble on the tributes and sponsor their favorites in the arena, providing water, food, weapons, and other necessary provisions. Past victors are often able to cultivate celebrity status in the Capitol. Despite the bloodthirsty nature of the Games, the people of the Capitol are shown to be vulnerable to sentimentality and melodrama, becoming emotionally invested in the tributes, a fact ultimately manipulated by Katniss and Peeta.
          To promote the release of the film, Lionsgate set up a fictional website for the Capitol. They also developed a virtual tour of the Capitol and a Panem-inspired Tumblr fashion blog called Capitol Couture. The studio also created a Capitol TV network on YouTube that showcases “official” Capitol productions as well as fan-made videos.

          Peacekeepers are the combined military and police force in Panem and Eastasia. They wear black trimmed white uniforms consisting of a blue helmet, a standing collar, waist length tunic, and trousers which are tucked into high black boots.

          Peacekeepers are usually residents of the Eurasia, Capitol and Districts who sign up for 20 years during which they may not marry or have children. Peacekeepers maintain order and suppress dissidence through coercion and brutality. They are each led by a district Head Peacekeeper who is the commander of each garrison and they ensure that the Capitol’s laws are obeyed and punish those who break them.

          • Dear Tor,


            The Hunger Games is definitely one of those seminal, iconic anti-authoritarian works that is infinitely quotable.

            Others are The Matrix, V for Vendetta, Firefly, Brazil.

    • Dear Gary,

      Putin is smart. So is China’s Xi.

      But strictly speaking, they don’t even need to take aggressive action.

      ‘Murcan pols, at the beck and call of the Unholy Triumvirate of the Fed/Treasury/Banksters are doing all their work for them. They are destroying ‘Murca from within far more thoroughly than any foreign pol could ever hope to do.

      • @Bevin – Never loose sight of Emmanuel Goldsteins words in Orwell’s 1984. The three empires will always pretend fight over a minor state just to keep the war machine going, the prols scared and confused (and poor).

        • All true, Gary – but this situation could get out of hand. Putin is not to be fucked with; certainly not by a poseur like Obama.

          Oh, Obama’s a typical political sociopath – and thus, unscrupulous beyond the comprehension of psychologically normal people. But he doesn’t actually do wet work.

          Putin does.

          • @Eric – Not saying wars will end. Not even. But the constant is the three empires (oceania, east asia, and eurasia) will constantly make and break alliances, fight with one or the other, then switch. This has been the case with every war since Korea. The pattern is just too accurate. If I read the book correctly, they decided long ago to to have a full out nuke war, just make everyone think so. It is their profit center.

          • Dear Gary,

            Re: full out nuclear war

            Let’s hope their conference notes got the wording correct.

            Wouldn’t want a “full out nuclear war” as the result of a clerical error.

        • Dear Gary,

          No argument. That is often the case.

          But not always. Just like Mafia families, they do sometimes “go to the mattresses.” Then it gets more real than even they want it.

          As far as I know, the Rothschilds Rockefeller powers behind the thrones do not currently control either Moscow or Beijing.

          They probably control all the Western corporatist nations, but not the former Communist Bloc nations. Not yet anyway.

          Ukraine is a real interest in Russian eyes. So is Taiwan in Chinese eyes. So are the Diaoyutai Islands, which the USG is attempting to turn over to Japan.

          • @Bevin – Where did the money come from since ’76 to build out China? Whose banking centers are now located in Beijing and Hong Kong? They may spat with each other, but in the end they are “mafia”.

          • @Bevin – Remember to divide by three regions. The the Rothschilds Rockefeller’s are one third. That is how the game must be played. Money and war roll around like marbles, but who are the shooters?

            I have come to believe it is all hiding in plain sight. Except for the real names of the shooters, which we never hear of course.

          • Dear Gary,

            Financial guru Michael Maloney talks about the shareholders of the Federal Reserve System, a closely guarded secret.

            Who are they? They are almost certainly those who control the world’s major banks.

            Find out who they are and we’ll have our answer.

          • @Bevin – As you so accurately said before. Bingo! 🙂

            I also found out recently that the IRS is not really a US Government department. It is a private collections corporation of the private Fed acting under contract. It is all a frigging world wide game of Monopoly and hat tricks.

          • Dear Gary,

            Yup. “Follow the money.”

            Always good advice.

            Actually, in the case of the Fed, it’s not “Follow the money.” The Unholy Triumvirate of Fed/Treasury/Banksters do not use money. They use currency. Fiat currency.

            Genuine money would bring their long con to a screeching halt. Only fiat currency makes possible “The Biggest Scam in the History of Mankind.”

            I urge everyone here to watch the following 30 minute video. It is the clearest most concise explanation of the global bankster scam that I have ever seen


            Together with “The Creature from Jekyll Island” they will tell you everything you need to know about what goes on behind the scenes.

          • Dear Gary,

            Yes. I can believe this guy.

            He’s saying essentially the same thing as G. Edward Griffen and Michael Maloney.

            The banksters’ Ponzi Scheme has run its course. It almost went over the precipice in 2008.

            This time, they won’t be able to pull another rabbit out of the hat.

            Nobody is buying into the scam any more. Not Russia. Not China. Not even Germany. They tried to get their gold back remember?

          • Mom, apple pie and vote for me to fix it all. The politicians have been feeding us that for how long? String’em up along with their predecessors.

          • Dear Gary,

            The guy (Jim Willie) wrote,

            “Imagine the lunacy of trying to cut off the only Russian warm water military naval port in the Crimea. Just as stupid as the Trans Pacific Partnership faux pas, trying to cut off China from its Asian neighbors and partners in trade. The intelligence level of the USGovt has never been more stupid, destructive, and in full view. ”

            Dead on!

          • Dear Gary,

            Just finished reading the entire article.


            That guy Jim Willie, aka “The Golden Jackass,” is a “got-damned genius!” He really gets the economic component of strategic power.

            Somehow the “Best and Brightest” Rhodes Scholars and Fullbright Scholars in DC and other Western power centers seem to have lost sight of the fact that one cannot be a global hegemon and world superpower if one is flat broke.

            Somehow the only people who seem to appreciate this simple economic reality, are the power elites in the two largest former Communist nations, China and Russia. How ironic.

            Thanks for sharing that article. Much appreciated.

          • @Bevin – Thanks. He does take in the big picture. Caution – if you subscribe to his newsletter all your free time will be used up reading. 🙂

  4. Based on the photo above, Putin looks as if he could be cast as a Bond villian or possible even as the title character (probably too old).

    How high will the debt get, before the house of cards collapse?

    Hopefully when the cards fall it will not take much time for sound policy to return.

    • Dear Mith,

      He really looks the part doesn’t he? Real badass.

      Actually he sort of looks like the ruthless spymaster Percy in the TV series NIKITA, played to perfection by Xander Berkeley.


      As we hardcore free market anarchists know, there are no “good politicians.” Only bad politicians and worse politicians.

      But geopolitical power struggles are a lot like mafia family wars. Who didn’t cheer for the Corleones and boo their rivals while watching “The Godfather?”

      And so it is with the Amerikan and Russian “crime families with flags.” Better known as “governments.”

      Speaking only for myself, I can’t help cheering Putin on and hoping that he can trip up the USG’s galloping hegemony.

        Blue pill society has rigged the game against natural men; the red pill is about finding the right countermeasures to live life and enjoy it.

        The history of the manosphere includes a sense of pride in validating one’s own life choices while simultaneously working to cut down other men who aren’t following your same exact path.

        This explains the constant one-upmanship that’s taken place in the manosphere.

        Though you may not agree with each man’s approach, you should nonetheless acknowledge the validity of differing approaches.

        Don’t waste time and energy developing new hierarchies and standards for the newly emerging phyles and movements. I.E: To each, his own.


        Why Must Women Progress At Men’s Expense?

      • I do not admire Putin, but I respect him.

        He’s a thug, but an accomplished one. A serious white person (so to speak). Martial arts master and KGB colonel.

        Obama is literally a joke.

        Putin, on the other hand, is as serious as melanoma.

        Fuck with him at your peril.
