The American people have no qualm against the Russians or their people - but the Deep State inside of America is determined to cause chaos - and today's publishing of a list comprised of over 210 allegedly "Senior Russian Officials" by the Treasury Department further underscores this desire.
The list includes 110 Russian officials and 96 Russian business owners who in all actuality haven't done anything to America. When you have propaganda outlets like<a href="https://www.cnn.com/2018/01/29/politics/trump-Russia-sanctions/index.html"> CNN </a>praising the move, you most certainly have to question who it benefits.
Even the<a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/congress/state-department-says-no-new-russia-sanctions-at-this-time/2018/01/29/dc06b644-055b-11e8-aa61-f3391373867e_story.html?utm_term=.c4b761ff86be"> Washington Post </a>reported that Vladimir Putin Claims this is in part a move made by enemies of President Trump to tighten the stranglehold on any peaceful cooperation with Russia.
"One does not have to be very smart to make this list," said Mikhail Fedotov, head of the Kremlin Human Rights Council. "It would suffice to visit the Kremlin website and take a look at the names of the administration heads, presidential advisers, presidential aides, etc. This is not a great piece of work," he said.
This is the second recent list to come out against Russia with five others being named<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/14393-Treasury-Department-Sanctions-Five-Russians-Per-Trump-Investigation"> just last month </a>, except in that case Sanctions were imposed against the former Soviet kingdom of Russia.
In the new list there are no sanctions imposed, but instead, an effort to make Americans fear to do any business with Russia in any way.
Every business owner with more than a billion dollars of net worth in Russia has been added to the new list, showing you just how broad of a brush was used in generating it.
There is some interest for the American people in keeping Russia at bay because as consumers we rely on the purchasing power of our US Dollar to be able to afford goods at a low price.
Sadly, that requires America to run a military industrial complex style of aggression and arms dealing across the globe which also creates many enemies that we don't need to have.
Russia, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba, and others have all claimed they'd accept the Petro-Yuan, a Chinese currency hopeful, in return for petroleum sales.
This threatens the US Dollar which is considered as the world's reserve currency used by almost every nation on earth. If the Petro-Yuan were to be accepted it would dramatically decrease the value of our dollar.
There's also a legitimate argument however that if America wasn't being aggressive all across the globe then Russia and others wouldn't desire to shut down our currency in the first place, but that's irrelevant because it's actually happening.
Under the<a href="https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/3364/text"> "Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act"</a>, Congress passed a bill on which they claim is meant to ‘counter aggression' by Iran, North Korea, and Russia.
It's essentially a means or furthering the "Deep State" narrative which claims Russia is somehow out to cause disarray inside of America, but in reality it's intended to both sanction the Russians for outing their plans, ensuring President Trump can never have a strong relationship with Vladimir Putin or unite to destroy some of the CIA's operatives inside of places such as Syria.
While I'm in no way defending Putin, or even Russia, the fictitious Russian hate serves no purpose except to keep the world at war, which is profitable.
The United States of America's intelligence community has a vested interest in keeping Americans and Russians as divided as possible, in part because the Russian government under Vladimir Putin has consistently called out the Deep State for their global atrocities in funding and financing "moderate rebels" in regions which play a strategic role in global petroleum delivers and sales.
More often than not, that financing of those types of rebels leads to essentially terrorists being paid for unknowingly by the American taxpayers. Putin has challenged this type of behavior in the public arena and as a result, the intelligence community has him marked.
The reality is, if America and Russia were to peacefully unite in the annihilation of ISIS or global threats from radical Islam, the two parties would quickly crush and conquer the Islamic Caliphate in just a matter of hours.
All of this comes of US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced four<a href="https://home.treasury.gov/news/press-releases/sm0266"> Executive Orders </a>on January 26th against an additional 21 Russians and nine Russian entities that promoted Urkanian interventions. That list also brought new sanctions.
"The U.S. government is committed to maintaining the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and to targeting those who attempt to undermine the Minsk agreements," said Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin. "Those who provide goods, services, or material support to individuals and entities sanctioned by the United States for their activities in Ukraine are engaging in behavior that could expose them to U.S. sanctions."
It boils down to protecting the interests of the intelligence community and the dollar and trying to restrain any chance of President Trump's friendship with Vladimir Putin from having positive impacts on regions where the "Deep State" is engaged heavily.
It's unfortunate, but there isn't much anyone can do about this. Currently, there's more than enough domestic battles between the Trump Administration and the "Deep State," where so far Trump has outplayed their every major maneuver.
Once the swamp is fully drained, there's potential for peace with Russia. If there's one quality about Putin you have to admire it would be that he's a <i>very patient man</i> and almost never takes the bait the "Deep State" dangles before him.
