Samson: Russia proposes to Europe to buy its oil in euros

26th December, 2018

Reduce Russia from using the US dollar for the pricing of its exports, and applies first on the export of Russian oil and gas.

“Russia wants Europe to buy its oil in euros instead of the dollar,” a Russian minister said, according to Sputnik.

The dollar is not a legal tool for cash payments in Europe and Russia. However, Europe still buys oil and gas in dollars.

Russia’s economic development minister, Maxim Ureshkin, said Russia and Europe should consider shifting to using the euro or other currency instead of the dollar to price oil and gas.   LINK

Samson:  Oil prices rise to $ 51 after a sharp drop

2018/12/26 15:23

Oil rose to $ 51 a barrel on Wednesday after hitting its lowest level since June 2017 amid estimates that the price drop triggered by concerns about the global economy has reached its peak and under OPEC-led efforts to curb supply.

Crude has been stuck in the context of weak financial markets in general in the light of US government closures, rising interest rates in the United States and the US-Beijing trade dispute, all of which have alarmed investors and exacerbated concerns about global growth.

Brent crude was up 43 cents at $ 50.90 a barrel at 0949 GMT. The price earlier fell to $ 49.93, its lowest level since July 2017, and lost 6.2 percent in the previous session.  US crude rose 74 cents to $ 43.27.  “I think the decline has gone a little too far because of global market concerns,” said Olivier Jacob, an analyst at Petromatrix.

“It’s all about stocks.  OPEC has shown its desire for higher prices and is working towards that goal. Trading was weak due to Christmas holidays. Asian stock markets fell again on Wednesday, while markets remain closed in Britain, Germany and France.  LINK

Worldwide Debt Did Trump Put The Deep State On Notice With Syrian Withdrawal?

Authored by Robert Bridge via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

The reason so many people continue to misread the actions of US President Donald Trump is because they tend to confuse him with the actions and behaviors of past US administrations, where indiscriminate death and destruction was America’s calling card around a shell-shocked planet. Although certainly erratic in his actions, Trump thus far has been predictable on one score: keeping the powers-that-be guessing.

Last week, Donald Trump, acting unilaterally and within full power as Commander-in-Chief, derailed the Deep State’s plans for yet another disastrous regime change operation, announcing the withdrawal of US troops from Syria.

In a video released via Twitter, the American leader announced that, “We have won against ISIS…and it’s time for our troops to come home.”

In the not-so-distant past, such an announcement would have been greeted with cheers since it is generally agreed that war is – at least for those doing the grunt work – a very unpleasant enterprise. But the times have changed, together with the national agenda, and instead of applause filling the airwaves, the American people can hear nothing but the screeching of incensed hawks on both sides of the political aisle.

That screeching is the sound of the Deep State expressing its deep displeasure and even pain.
