Great news for Russia and Crimea, and for anyone who’s asked me whether it was a good idea to relocate to Crimea! The new, but already legendary Crimean Bridge (aka, the Kerch Bridge), opens to heavy freight traffic! Train traffic next!
Hundreds of long-distance truckers tested the Kerch Bridge. Last night, the bridge connecting Crimea and Kuban was opened to freight traffic. Crimea and Sevastopol now have another route to deliver food and goods from continental Russia. Its importance and reliability can’t be overstated, especially with winter approaching.
Проект моста через Дунай, который презентовали Порошенко и премьеру Болгарии Бойко Борисову во время их визита в Одесскую область, оказался банально срисован с фото моста через Амур в российском Хабаровске.
Fake Revealed! Ukraine simply copied a Russian Bridge across Amur in Khabarovsk, Siberia, presenting it as their own design of a bridge across Danube! The project of the new bridge across Danube, which was presented to Poroshenko and PM of Bulgaria Boyko Borisov during their visit to Odessa Oblast turned out to be simply copied from an Amur Bridge in Russian Khabarovsk.
Poroshenko being presented the fake ‘new’ bridge project across the river Danube, Odessa Oblast:
The photoshopped ‘international’ Ukrainian bridge, a direct copy of the REAL Russian bridge across Amur in Khabarovsk Krai, Siberia. This fake bridge is supposed to ‘easily’ connect Ukraine with Romania and multiple…

LADA’S INTRO: Dear friends,
The world events we are experiencing are very rattling and often negative. Sometimes we all need a rest from the troubles of the world we are all carrying on our shoulders. I feel driven to infuse a more positive feel into our common space on Patreon. I want this to be a place where we can share a smile, and I want you to come here not only for earth-shifting revelations and heavy-duty geopolitical analysis, but also as a place where you can mingle and get to know your fellow members. A place, where we reach out not only to the higher dimensions, but also to each other… As you know, we do Spiritual Spa, which I’ll probably make into a Special Feature, but I also love to travel and explore. Don’t you?
This is one of the reasons I am inspired to post…

(Natural News) If you listen to ‘official’ Washington, to include the establishment media commentariat, it’s gauche and unacceptable to criticize the Federal Reserve, because it’s supposed to be “independent” from government and thus unassailable, despite the fact that, as our central bank, the Fed decides fiscal policy for the entire country.
Never mind that the Executive Branch, primarily, with Congress playing a secondary role, was charged by our founders with that responsibility. After all, presidents set the tone for domestic and foreign policy; why are they supposed to remain silent when it comes to monetary policy?
POTUS Donald Trump doesn’t believe that presidents should remain silent over Fed policy or that the central bank is beyond reproach, especially when its fiscal policies are mitigating his economic initiatives to the detriment of the American people.
As The Gateway Pundit reports, Wall Street saw its 102nd stock market record last week under POTUS Trump’s economic leadership, only to have it wiped out by a 1,500-point plunge after Federal Reserve Chairman (and Trump nominee) Jerome Powell raised interest rates once again.
Calling the Fed “crazy,” POTUS is right to question the aggressive rate hikes during his presidency, which seem designed to thwart his economic progress at the most inopportune times (like now, right before the midterm elections).
The Trump economy has been nothing short of a miracle, having been revived after eight long, unproductive years under the most corrupt president in modern history, Barack Hussein Obama. But during his tenure, interest rates plunged to zero and remained there for the bulk of his presidency – yet he still only managed an average of less than two percent growth per year, making his the worst presidency for economic growth since Herbert Hoover in the early 1930s. (Related: The Trump economy is SO GOOD even the Left-wing media has to admit it.)
In December 2015, when then-Fed chairwoman Janet Yellen finally raised interest rates by a quarter-percent, CNBC noted that Obama was the recipient of “the most accommodative monetary policy in U.S. history.”
Trump was right in 2016 and he’s right again
But now that POTUS Trump has revived the economy, there are forces at work to temper his successes – which are really our successes – and wreck his progress – which is really our progress as a country.
That’s what the president wants to know.
“The problem I have is with the Fed. The Fed is going wild. I mean, I don’t know what their problem is that they are raising interest rates, and it’s ridiculous,” he told Fox News regarding the rate increases, according to Market Watch. “The problem, in my opinion, is Treasury and the Fed. The Fed is going loco, and there’s no reason for them to do it. I’m not happy about it.”
Naturally, the Washington establishment and the political commentariat pushed back on POTUS’ comments, but that’s what the establishment does all the time when it comes to the current occupant of the White House – no matter how many times he proves them wrong.
“Please point out to me on this historic chart of the Fed funds rate where exactly the current Fed has ‘gone crazy,’” Ben White, chief economic correspondent for Politico (the real expert, not the billionaire in the Oval Office) tweeted, including a Fed Funds rate charge dating back to 1970 showing peaks and valleys.
And while POTUS Trump once criticized Yellen for keeping rates so low for so long, the point he was trying to make then is the same he’s trying to make now: You can’t keep rates that low for so long and then raise them believing there won’t be a series of asset bubbles popping all over the place.
“As soon as [rates] go up, the stock market’s going down,” GOP nominee Trump said in September 2016, adding that he believed Yellen was keeping the rates deflated to make Obama look good.
He was right then, and he’s right now.
