The Empire is long gone

But the post-Imperial idiots now running what passes for formerly Great Britain don't seem to grasp that they are not a major power anymore.
Abramovich was a protege of Vladimir Putin – the most ruthless leader in Russia’s recent history. Indeed, his decision to shelve plans for Chelsea’s new stadium has all the hallmarks of his one-time Kremlin mentor.

It is a warning shot, while in a fit of pique, from a man who feels he has been more than generous to Britain but who feels insulted in return by the British government.

Also, it can be seen as an ominous hint that he is ready to end his links with Chelsea FC altogether and possibly sell the club rather than continue pouring money thanklessly into one of the kingpins in Britain’s national sport.

But Abramovich’s move is far more complex – and menacing. This is not just a hissy-fit by a spoilt Russian oligarch. I am convinced that Abramovich made this decision with the approval and possibly the explicit instructions of Putin.
Given that Abramovich is a Jew and a newly minted Israeli citizen, it's remotely possible that this one-man anti-British divestment campaign is being directed by Jerusalem instead of Moscow. But regardless of whether it is the Russians or the Israelis who are reacting to the bizarre ill-treatment of their citizen, the point is that the British are again seriously overestimating their importance.

How can we tell if it is the Russians or the Israelis behind this? Simple. If Russian investors withdraw from the UK in masse and crash the City markets, it's the Russians. Remember, the Russians already know they are going to have to get out of the SWIFT system and join the Chinese alternative at some point. This could be the first sign that this financial migration is actually beginning.

More likely, it's just the rational response of a man to receiving a very clear message that he is not wanted, so he is quite reasonably opting not to financially support his declared enemies. Would that conservatives did the same!

This is all part of the silly charade that the Russian is "the new enemy." The Salisbury false flag fiasco was meant to set up a confrontation, as a prelude to getting involved in Syria. It didn't work and large swathes of the populace are unconvinced. Despite this the UK government have to pretend it was all real or face massive humiliation. Hence denying Abramovich despite years of living and investing in Britain with no problem. Soon there will be a whipped up hysteria over Russian money in the UK. The Tory pets in the media will see to this.

I was doing business in London some years ago, at a party with a bunch of City types, who were railing about Dubya and the USA in general. I said to them, "That's rich coming from you guys in a country of small refrigerators and uncontrolled public drunkenness. Not that we're any great shakes, mind you."

And this was before rape gangs, knife attacks, and a Jihadist as mayor of London.

It was over for Britain in 1945. Thatcher took a run at saving it, but it was just a hiccup in the slow inevitable ongoing decline.

One of the reasons I believe that the Remainers were so adamant is not only because they are "liberal internationalists" but also that they believe without foreigners, Britain is doomed. It's no accident that of the top teams in the EPL, only Tottenham is 100% British owned. It's the "English" Premier league in a geographical sense only.

This anti-Russian thing is just a "tut-tut" huff fit by a nation that used to be great, but is no more. Not to worry. Roman will get billions for Chelsea and Jerry Jones or Carlos Slim or some Emirati will write the next check.

Blogger Jack Amok June 01, 2018 10:14 AM  

So a foreigner is going to invest a huge amount of money into a business he owns in your country, but your government denies him a work visa, so when he cancels the investment your natural conclusion is that it's a Russian plot...

It says something that globalists are - or at least think their followers are - so oblivious to such a basic form of cause and effect.

Blogger Daniel Paul Grech Pereira June 01, 2018 10:19 AM  

Britain is an island full of jihadis, pedophiles, rapists and cucks. I just made a similar post to my blog with this satirical description of Britain:

"Terrorism and organised pedophile rape gangs are highly organised in all grades of society; 'jihadism' in Syria and Iraq has a significant contribution from British born extremists. Morals are superficially highly developed, based on the Globalist Progressive Narrative and EU Fascism; they are, in fact, of a non-existent standard, particularly in urban diversified areas. The Briton is still, however, well known for his extreme subjugation in so far as his womenfolk are concerned, and in a crisis will not lift a finger to defend a single child."

The world's finances ARE run thru Britain with Switzerland coordinating with Britain for the EU. They are not a physical Empire anymore, true. As insiders would say in Britain, ALL Empires end - badly.

Nonetheless, everything that matters financially, including all the major tax havens and offshoring, all are ordered via London. Additionally, with EurAsian gold for the next century lined up thru London, Russians have to come to London for any AU.

So the Russians can wail all they want, their wealth, and more to the point, the oligarchical wealth, is completely at London's mercy.

So it's backwards. The Russians cannot crash London, but London can squeeze the Russians.

While there are certainly a lot of bankers and banker types in London, remember financial services gravitated there due to restictive labor laws on the continent. It's been a while since I've been there, but I know a few years back every French banker who could get to London did.

As Vox noted, the Russians may be hankering to abandon SWIFT and go to CIPS, but CIPS has exchanged bodily fluids with SWIFT. It had to, though I bet in China's 100 year plan there is a page or two to get have CIPs be the dominant network, and to cut SWIFT out altogether with the RMB as the reserve currency. But for now, the dollar remains the reserve currency of choice, and China has to play nice.

Meanwhile, the USA can get inside SWIFT anytime it wants and all other forms of global electronic networks--I wouldn't be surprised if there's a toggle at the NSA that gets us inside CIPS, too.

That's why North Korea is willing to sit down with us -- it's not that we're just squeezing them, we're squeezing their suppliers, telling them if they do business with Kim, they won't get paid by OTHER customers.

Our "santions" have bite.

Blogger Fernando Negro June 01, 2018 2:02 PM  

With all due respect,

If you want to know what's really going on behind the scenes, you'll have to read, and listen to, what (the Russian FSB Colonel) Daniel Estulin has to say - now, mostly on his Twitter account: https://twitter.com/EstulinDaniel - and also to what the LaRouche Movement, in the US, has to say: http://larouchepub.com/

There are many things wrong in your assertions...

1) The British Empire never ceased to exist (https://twitter.com/BlackFerdyPT/status/934417652302450690 + https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOROJD8TVYI). And, the royal family now just exercises its power covertly, instead of overtly, in order not to cause an obvious social uproar. Remember the "Opium Wars"? They never ceased to exist, also (https://twitter.com/BlackFerdyPT/status/935150022722768898) and are now also done covertly instead.

2) The Zionists are not the only group of Jews who organize themselves politically (and who have international influence). There are different groups, who don't go along with each other (https://twitter.com/EstulinDaniel/status/962046085165297665). And, the reason why you don't notice the ones besides the Zionists is because, not only are those other groups also based in the West, but many times their interests coincide with what the West is doing.

3) Putin only controls Russia's external policy. The Economy is still in the hands of the same Traitors put in control of it by the West, after the fall of the Soviet Union (https://twitter.com/EstulinDaniel/status/903448001842171905). So, Putin has very little power and influence (https://twitter.com/EstulinDaniel/status/986109365718401025). And, the people with money in Russia are Western and/or Jewish puppets (https://twitter.com/EstulinDaniel/status/689875307881500672).

4) Almost everything that the Western media says about Putin (and not only that, but pretty much also about anything of important that happens in the world of international politics) are Lies. The Western media says that Putin is the Devil incarnated. Yet, the people who are "suffering" his rule support him overwhelmingly... Mass media is the last place to go to know what's happening in the world of politics. It's controlled by the same big economic interests that give orders to our Western governments (https://www.amazon.co.uk/True-Story-Bilderberg-Group/dp/0979988624/) and that seek to control the Russian government as well. And, with Putin not going along with such interests, he is constantly lied about in this same controlled mass media.

Scant doubt you're right about the issue out where you live. But I'm based in Chicago city proper and our problem is like that depicted by the video cited above. Stupid drivers texting while pulling out from a parking spot. I've been admitted to an emergency room (N'western) and splayed across several SUV hoods/windshields despite having favorable light at the crosswalk. Every single time it's "Jill Coogan", a Lincoln Park Trixie driving with her golden retriever in an SUV purchased by dad and with a B1G U. sticker on the rear window, twice U. Iowa FWIW. She's always too busy talking on her cell phone to notice minor obstacles like human beings crossing the street with the light. You can bet your bottom dollar someday I'm gonna shoot me one of those biotches and then skirt a little closer to home and grab some ice cream. Go back and review that video, it's emblematic of the phenomenon my wrath has been directed at here.

Both Russia and China have at this point prepared for the eventual and quite soon demise of the dollar. Conservatively the Fed Reserve is hypothecated to infinity at, if private estimates from insiders is to be believed, of $10 quads ($10,000 T). Yep, you read that right. If the Global Currency Reset does take place, and/or the Treasury Reserve Note for International Trade comes about, expect an immediate ~30% Federal Reserve Note drop as the TRN makes waves and prevents utter catastrophe. Even if we weren't at End of Empire for the U.S., the actions of the Fed Res would have spelt our doom.

Well, maybe not because of the "conservatives", but Disney shares are declining: https://www.thestreet.com/investing/stocks/disney-selloff-could-be-buying-opportunity-14584850, the NFL has been forced to do an about face on their kneeling for the National Anthem after a drop of 18% of their viewership, Universities like Missou have declining enrolments after the administration caved to special snowflakes...

We are looking at a densely interconnected network of power, influence and finance woven through society by the Progressives over a century, so dismantling it will take a great deal of doing. And the resources accumulated over that time means the Progressives can hunker down in academia, the media and entertainment industry, the bureaucracy and politics for a prolonged period, hoping to ride things out and wait for the populist uprising to subside.
