Ru-coin? As Moscow Moves to Regulate Crypto Transactions, Russian Central Bank Plans to Build Its Own Cryptocurrency

Numerous announcements came out of this week’s St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, where ex-Fox News presenter Megyn Kelly interviewed Russian President Vladimir Putin alongside Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi (about which the Russian Analyst will be posting soon).

One of the most important state declarations: that of Deputy Russian Central Bank Governor Olga Skorobogatova. She stated that the Federation is prepared to issue its own national e-currency within the next three years. This came after Deputy Finance Minister Aleksey Moiseev’s call in April for Russian legislation to regulate trading in crypto-currencies and promote transparency in crypto-transactions by 2018.

Syraq SITREP 16: Victory Over ISIS Prologue to the Next Mideast War?

The Islamic State, whose so-called Caliphate ran wild across the Syraqi deserts from 2014-15 as the Obama Administration did little to oppose its advance, is collapsing on all fronts. In Mosul, Iraqi security forces mop up pockets of Daesh resistance; around Raqqa the U.S. has started B52, Apache gunship and long range surface to surface rocket strikes in support of special forces advancing into the northern outskirts alongside SDF Kurds. Most dramatically, in the Syrian deserts, the Daeshbags are in full retreat while being pummeled by Russian airpower and Syrian artillery.

As footage released by the Russian Ministry of Defense made clear, the Obama era of large Daesh convoys moving unimpeded from Raqqa to attack ‘the Syrian regime’ (as they did at Palmyra as recently as December 2015) is over. For the fake Caliphate, a Hitler in the Berlin bunker-style downfall looms.

Memorial Day в Афганистане

On Friday May 26, Zbigniew Kazimierz Brzezinski, one of the architects of the U.S. ‘bear trap’ strategy to bait the Soviets into Afghanistan and then bleed the mighty USSR via support for insurgents in that country, died at a northern Virginia hospital. He was 89 years old.

Ironically, the author of The Grand Chessboard passed away just weeks after the Pentagon accused the Russian Federation of aiding Taliban elements against the Americans, who are the sons or grandsons of the anti-Soviet mujaheddin. The Russians denied the allegations of arming anti-American guerrillas in Afghanistan.

Trumping NATO

It’s rare to see a politician follow through on his campaign rhetoric — even more rare when said statements have drawn the ire of the entire trans-Atlantic political/security apparat for exposing their game. Nonetheless, despite some verbal hints at retreat since January, Donald J. Trump came into NATO headquarters in Brussels Thursday and called the bluff of the EUrocrat freeloaders proclaiming that we should all be fearful of revanchist Russia, stating that most Euro-NATOists haven’t been placing their taxpayers’ money where their Cold War 2 proclaiming mouths are.

In other words, Trump exposed the Atlanticist con that we should all be very very afraid of Vlad the Bad’s resurgent evil empire, even as the suicide bombing blowback from NATO’s 2011 adventure in Libya left 22 dead at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.

Syraq SITREP 15: Russian Flags Fluttering in the Syraqi Border Breeze?

On May 18 U.S. jets attacked a convoy of Syrian military National Defense Forces and Shi’a Hezbollah/Iraqi allies west of the al-Tanf border crossing, which has been seized by American and British special forces. The air strike killed six pro-Syrian government combatants, and was claimed by the Americans to have targeted Iranian backed Shi’a militia rather than the Syrian Arab Army. However, the next time U.S. jets based in Jordan try to bomb Syrian forces in the area, they may spot the distinct profile of Sukhoi 30s on the horizon or hear the growl warning of Pantsir SAM radars in their headsets…

While Trump Visits Saudi Arabia, Houthis Continue Attacks on Saudi Forces

On Sunday President Donald J. Trump gave a historic speech in front of his Saudi and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) hosts, declaring that the U.S. was not against Islam nor seeking to impose the American values on other nations, while calling on Muslims to unite against the scourge of terrorism. While the legacy media focused on Trump, first lady Melania’s demure non-form fitting black pantsuit or lack of a headscarve, or the massive arms and infrastructure deals announced with the pomp and ceremony of a bigly visit to Riyadh, numerous issues lurked behind the scenes. Including questions of persistent low oil prices drastically curtailing the Saudis ambitions to reinvent their country’s hydrocarbon based economy and the obsession with rival Iran fueling a military quagmire in Yemen.

Washington Post’s #TrumpRussia Hysteria, as Seth Rich-Wikileaks Connection Confirmed

Just when the Russia Analyst thought we could turn to writing about Vladimir Putin’s piano playing at the One Belt One Road summit in China, along comes more manufactured #TrumpRussia ns! hysteria, courtesy of CIA’s old/new favorite mouthpiece, the Jeff Bezos blog known as The Washington Post.

Conveniently enough for the Democratic wing of the dirty deep state, this #fakenews story coincided with a report that would’ve been buried, were it not for a Trump ally and suspected informal counselor in the guise of the Internet’s headlines aggregator in chief Matt Drudge: confirmation from a private investigator and former DCPD detective hired by Seth Rich’s family, that the DNC staffer was in touch with Wikileaks before he was murdered.

Amidst Comey Firing Furor, Trump Hosts Lavrov

One day after he fired FBI director James Comey for incompetence and covering for the Clinton crime family, President Trump hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at the White House. For the NeverTrumpers, and the #TrumpRussia ns conspiratrolls both paid and unpaid, and neolibcon Beltway bandits ranging from the Democrat Chuck Schumers to the GOP McInsanes, it was like boosting one upraised middle digit from POTUS to the Deep State Swamp with another.

Atlantic Council & MSM Smear RM Guest Posobiec for Reporting #MacronLeaks

Back on April 29, Rogue Money published an interview with’s Washington D.C. correspondent Jack Posobiec. The topic was antifas thuggery, which had resulted in Mr. Posobiec recently being assaulted while filming on the street and his assailant being arrested.
Little did we know then that days later the legacy media, with a helpful nudge from the (foreign government-funded) (G)NGO the Atlantic Council and a small army of #TrumpRussia Twitter trolls, would soon be attacking a RM guest as an alleged Russian propaganda asset…because Odnoklassniki profile. Drunk on their own Russians! koolaid, the globalist shills are determined to conflate reading 4Chan/pol and reporting on the contents of the allegedly hacked files of French presidential candidate Emanuel Macron with taking orders from the Kremlin.
