As Iran politically rises the Zionists slowly and morally fall ~ link ~ This is one of the many factors driving the very dangerous level of geopolitical/strategic 'red flags' as we head into 2015. Much is Israel's fault as their attitudes towards non-Jewish peoples and especially 'neighboring' peoples is so terribly racist in the extreme (many believe that unless you are born of a Jewish mother you are not a 'human' simply a soulless two-legged animal placed on this earth to serve the Jews) that it brings hate upon their heads and empowers potential regional competitors such as Iran (ancient Persia). This could be changed but not under leaders like Bibi 666 Netanyahu and his ilk! Stirling

[A]s Russia's Vedomosti reports, citing vegetable producer Belaya Dacha, juice maker Sady Pridoniya and others, Russian suppliers are suspending food shipments to stores because of unpredictable FX movements.
The Vedomosti website further notes that food retailers are at the mercy of suppliers because of the dramatic volatility of the country's currency, the ruble, whose worth is tumbling as devaluation continues daily. As such, suppliers simply cannot "plan their activities in the current environment," according to a Google Translate version of the story.

Judging from the volatility in the USA index today, I strongly believe that we had a derivative meltdown of some sort. The total USA dollar short position by major players is 9 trillion USA according to the iMF. The USA dollar has gone from 80 up to 91.5 for a 14.3% loss. Coupled with this, the players then bought oil plus other commodities and that as well as seen a huge fall. There is also a huge problem with a potential Greece exit. All of these combined could add up to a trillion dollar loss to the major USA banking system (the major banking underwriters).
Oil Derivatives in early 2015 explosion ~ link ~
Gold and derivatives expert Rob Kirby thinks crashing oil prices are going to lead to a 2008 style financial meltdown. This is not a maybe–a market explosion is going to happen in 2015. Kirby contends, “Oh yes, without a doubt, it will. It must because the income crude oil sales generate are used to pay the interest on the debt. . . . If you have a mortgage payment of $5,000 at the end of the month and you only have $2,500, you have defaulted. That is the position they are in right now. We just need to wait for some coupon dates to come and go because these guys won’t have the money. They don’t have the income.”
Kirby also thinks what is happening with oil prices being cut in half in a matter of months is no accident. Kirby explains, “I look at what is transpiring in the crude oil market as yet another engineered or financial trickery on the part of the financial elites. . . . What this breakdown in the crude oil price is going to spawn another financial crisis. It will be tied to the junk debt that has been issued to finance the shale oil plays in North America. It is reported to be in the area of half a trillion dollars worth of junk debt that is held largely on the books of large financial institutions in the western world. When these bonds start to fail, they will jeopardize the future of these financial institutions. I do believe that will be the signal for the Fed to come riding to the rescue with QE4. I also think QE4 is likely going to be accompanied by bank bail-ins because we all know all western world countries have adopted bail-in legislation in their most recent budgets. The financial elites are engineering the excuse for their next round of money printing . . . and they will be confiscating money out of savings accounts and pension accounts. That’s what I think is coming in the very near future.”
