WTF, Russia’s domestic Internet traffic mysteriously passes through Chinese routers

BRICS INTERNET ALTERNATIVE



This is significant news...this means the BRICS are now separating their Internet traffic to their own networks outside the US/UK/EU controlled networks...  This is not accidental.  Its starting...  -AK

WTF, Russia’s domestic Internet traffic mysteriously passes through Chinese routers

Unexplained diversion underscores insecurity of Net's global routing system.

by Dan Goodin - Nov 9 2014, 6:00pm WET

Dyn Research

Domestic Internet traffic traveling inside the borders of Russia has repeatedly been rerouted outside of the country under an unexplained series of events that degrades performance and could compromise the security of Russian communications.

The finding, reported Thursday in a blog post published by Internet monitoring service Dyn, underscores the fragility of the border gateway protocol (BGP), which forms the underpinning of the Internet's global routing system. In this case, domestic Russian traffic was repeatedly routed to routers operated by China Telecom, a firm with close ties to that country's government. When huge amounts of traffic are diverted to far-away regions before ultimately reaching their final destination, it increases the chances hackers with the ability to monitor the connections have monitored or even altered some of the communications. A similar concern emerged last year, when Dyn found big chunks of traffic belonging to US banks, government agencies, and network service providers had been improperly routed through Belarusian or Icelandic service providers.

The hijacking of Russian traffic is linked to last year's peering agreement between Russian mobile provider Vimpelcom and China Telecom. [...then its not hijacking is it? Its planned! -AK] The pact allowed the firms to save money by having some of their traffic carried over the other's network rather than through a more expensive transit operator.

On multiple occasions since then, according to Dyn, communications destined for Russia has followed extremely round-about routes that take the traffic into China before sending it on to its final stop. Doug Madory, director of internet analysis at Dyn, wrote:

Even Internet paths from Moscow to other parts of Russia were forced through China Telecom’s routers. In the following example, a traceroute from Moscow is taken by Vimpelcom to Frankfurt, handed over to China Telecom’s routers in Frankfurt and, (mercifully) redirected back into Russia via Megafon without getting directed out to Shanghai. (This diversion of domestic Russian traffic is illustrated in the graphic at the beginning of this blog.)

BGP is such a complex framework that improper routing of this type can often be the result of human error by engineers acting in good faith. But the same complexity and lack of security can just as easily be abused by hackers, government snoops, or vandals. Madory recommends operators of large networks carefully monitor the routes their traffic traverses and to filter the routes they receive. "Without both measures, your traffic could be easily misdirected, potentially hurting both the performance and security of your Internet communications," he warned.

Jim Willie: The Crash Heard Round the World- Saudis to Reject USD for Oil Payments
Posted on September 21, 2014

Putin kicked out the Rothschild bankers from his country.[Ahem... my Russian friend tells me the Bank of Russia is still Rothschild controlled central bank and enjoys the same immunity from prosecution from the Russian government the US Federal Reserve has in the USA... -AK ] Putin interrupted the US Govt heroin trade supply routes out of Afghanistan. Like Abraham Lincoln 150 years ago, the elite banker chambers wish to remove Putin and to suppress Russia, but the sprawling nation has joined at the hip with China.  Thus Russia cannot be isolated any more than a bear can be bear hugged.  The nation spans 12 time zones and is a top supplier of numerous important commodities. The Russia & China bond is growing and will result in a marriage, the consummation being a baby called the Gold Trade Standard.

The King Dollar is being displaced, kicked off its throne.  Its squire the Petro-Dollar is undergoing demise.  The Ukraine War is the US Dollar Waterloo event.

The Saudi rejection of the USD in exclusive oil payments will be the crash heard around the world.

Obama's Former Chief Economist Calls For An End To US Dollar Reserve Status

Obama's Former Chief Economist Calls For An End To US Dollar Reserve Status

Submitted by Tyler Durden on 09/08/2014 16:51 -0400

Authored by Jared Bernstein, originally posted Op-Ed at The NY Times,

There are few truisms about the world economy, but for decades, one has been the role of the United States dollar as the world’s reserve currency. It’s a core principle of American economic policy. After all, who wouldn’t want their currency to be the one that foreign banks and governments want to hold in reserve?

But new research reveals that what was once a privilege is now a burden, undermining job growth, pumping up budget and trade deficits and inflating financial bubbles. To get the American economy on track, the government needs to drop its commitment to maintaining the dollar’s reserve-currency status.

The reasons are best articulated by Kenneth Austin, a Treasury Department economist, in the latest issue of The Journal of Post Keynesian Economics (needless to say, it’s his opinion, not necessarily the department’s). On the assumption that you don’t have the journal on your coffee table, allow me to summarize.

It is widely recognized that various countries, including China, Singapore and South Korea, suppress the value of their currency relative to the dollar to boost their exports to the United States and reduce its exports to them. They buy lots of dollars, which increases the dollar’s value relative to their own currencies, thus making their exports to us cheaper and our exports to them more expensive.

In 2013, America’s trade deficit was about $475 billion. Its deficit with China alone was $318 billion.

Though Mr. Austin doesn’t say it explicitly, his work shows that, far from being a victim of managed trade, the United States is a willing participant through its efforts to keep the dollar as the world’s most prominent reserve currency.

When a country wants to boost its exports by making them cheaper using the aforementioned process, its central bank accumulates currency from countries that issue reserves. To support this process, these countries suppress their consumption and boost their national savings. Since global accounts must balance, when “currency accumulators” save more and consume less than they produce, other countries — “currency issuers,” like the United States — must save less and consume more than they produce (i.e., run trade deficits).

India Slams US Global Hegemony By Scuttling Global Trade Deal, Puts Future Of WTO In Doubt




India Slams US Global Hegemony By Scuttling Global Trade Deal, Puts Future Of WTO In Doubt

Submitted by Tyler Durden on 08/01/2014 15:44 -0400


Yesterday we reported that with the Russia-China axis firmly secured, the scramble was on to assure the alliance of that last, and critical, Eurasian powerhouse: India. It was here that Russia had taken the first symbolic step when earlier in the week its central bank announced it had started negotiations to use national currencies in settlements, a process which would culminate with the elimination of the US currency from bilateral settlements.

Russia was not the first nation to assess the key significance of India in concluding perhaps the most important geopolitical axis of the 21st century - we reported that Japan, scrambling to find a natural counterbalance to China with which its relations have regressed back to World War II levels, was also hot and heavy in courting India. “The Japanese are facing huge political problems in China,” said Kondapalli in a phone interview. “So Japanese companies are now looking to shift to other countries. They’re looking at India.”

Of course, for India the problem with a Japanese alliance is that it would also by implication involve the US, the country which has become insolvent and demographically imploding Japan's backer of last and only resort, and thus burn its bridges with both Russia and China. A question emerged: would India embrace the US/Japan axis while foregoing its natural Developing Market, and BRICS, allies, Russia and China.

We now have a clear answer and it is a resounding no, because in what was the latest slap on the face of now crashing on all sides US global hegemony, earlier today India refused to sign a critical global trade dea. Specifically, India's unresolved demands led to the collapse of the first major global trade reform pact in two decades. WTO ministers had already agreed the global reform of customs procedures known as "trade facilitation" in Bali, Indonesia, last December, but were unable to overcome last minute Indian objections and get it into the WTO rule book by a July 31 deadline.

SDR’S AND THE NEW BRETTON WOODS – PART ONE


Interesting data, seems there are at least 3 schemes out there to try and phoenix the existing systems... -Bill

SDR’S AND THE NEW BRETTON WOODS – PART ONE
JANUARY 21, 2014 JC COLLINS  T
BRICS Inject Capital into I.M.F. Basket of Currencies

In my previous post I briefly explained how China was in the process of assuming the liabilities of the Federal Reserve, in addition to their already held liabilities of the U.S. Treasury.  Such a strong statement will require even stronger evidence.  This I will attempt to achieve over this multi-part essay.

“The legislative process is underway right now. We want the reforms to be adopted expeditiously. It’s really the U.S. Treasury, Jack Lew and his team that’s taking the lead on getting these measures through the U.S. Congress that are required to implement the 2010 reforms.”

“Just to remind you what those are, the 2010 reforms do a couple things. One, they bring four dynamic emerging market countries into the top 10 shareholder ranks or what we call quota ranks of the institution. China, Brazil, Russia, India. It also doubles our permanent capital, the quota. And it also creates a fully elected Executive Board.”
                          – William Murray, I.M.F. Deputy Spokesman, Jan 9, 2014.

“The IMF is explicit in its antidemocratic leanings, what it calls “political considerations”.  The SDR blueprint calls for the appointment of “an advisory board of eminent experts” to provide direction on the amount of money printing in the new SDR system.  Perhaps these “eminent experts” would be selected from among the same economists and central bankers who led the international monetary system to the brink of destruction in 2008.”
                                   – James Rickards, Currency Wars, Penguin Group, 2011

 _______________________________________________________________________________

G. Edward Griffin’s mind altering “The Creature from Jekyll Island” introduced many of us to the somewhat hidden history of the U.S. Federal Reserve.  It told of how the Federal Reserve Act was passed in Congress during the Christmas break in the year 1913.  It was insidious.  And it changed the course of human history, as it planted the seed of what would slowly grow to become the world’s reserve currency.

Though the U.S. dollar didn’t become the official reserve currency until the Bretton Woods Agreement of 1944, it is commonly accepted that the dollar had already usurped the British pound of this title well before it was officially acknowledged. As I believe the U.S. dollar has now already been usurped by another.  We’ll get back to that in a while.

There was another event which took place in the year 1913 which has been little understood or known at all in the western world today.  After the collapse of the Manchu Dynasty in 1911, the remaining Government of the Chinese Republic issued bonds to foreign investors for the purpose of raising capital to rebuild the country.  These bonds were titled the 1913 Chinese Government 5% Reorganization Gold Loan.  Emphasis on the word gold for later reference.

These bonds were pegged to the price of gold as a hedge against future inflation and were denominated in four currencies.  The underwriting banks for the bonds reflect the four currencies which the bonds were interchangeable with at the time, which are now known as HSBC, Deutsche Bank, the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, and Caylon – Credit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank.

Keep in mind that these bonds were issued in the same context as the U.S. Treasury Bonds which the world’s central banks have been gobbling up since 1944. These bonds had a yield.  These bonds have never fully been acknowledged by the Chinese government.  As a part of the deal with the British government for the return of Hong Kong, the People’s Republic of China did honor 10% of the outstanding bonds at about 62% of the face value.  And what I can say at this time is that there is in fact a deal in the works for a final payout on the remaining bonds.  We’ll get back to that in a while.

Is this More of the ‘Cabal Takedown’?… “The BRICS “Independent Internet” Cable. In Defiance of the “US-Centric Internet””

This was posted at KPs blog....

Is this More of the ‘Cabal Takedown’?… “The BRICS “Independent Internet” Cable. In Defiance of the “US-Centric Internet””

Another move to separate BRICs and other non-West–aligned countries from the US (et al) corporate controlled media , as I see it…
—————————————————–
The BRICS “Independent Internet” Cable. In Defiance of the “US-Centric Internet”
The President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff announces publicly the creation of a world internet system INDEPENDENT from US and Britain ( the “US-centric internet”).
Not many understand that, while the immediate trigger for the decision (coupled with the cancellation of a summit with the US president) was the revelations on NSA spying, the reason why Rousseff can take such a historic step is that the alternative infrastructure: The BRICS cable from Vladivostock, Russia to Shantou, China to Chennai, India to Cape Town, South Africa to Fortaleza, Brazil, is being built and it’s, actually, in its final phase of implementation.
No amount of provocation and attempted “Springs” destabilizations and Color Revolution in the Middle East, Russia or Brazil can stop this process. The huge submerged part of the BRICS plan is not yet known by the broader public.
Nonetheless it is very real and extremely effective. So real that international investors are now jumping with both feet on this unprecedented real economy opportunity. The change… has already happened.

BRICS agree on $50bn IMF rival bank, ‘difficult’ details remain



BRICS agree on $50bn IMF rival bank, ‘difficult’ details remain 
03 Sep 2013
http://special-events.rt.com/summit-g20/news/brics-bank-g20-petersburg/

The ‘big five’ of the developing world, the BRICS nations, will meet on the sidelines of the G20 to further iron out the details of their proposed development bank, which will pool foreign reserves from the five nations to create a fund of up to $100bn.
Leaders from Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa will meet in St. Petersburg to discuss the progress of the bank to rival the dominance of the World Bank and the IMF, and to establish a new joint currency reserve arrangement.

So far the emerging economies have agreed on $50bn in capital, but there are still ‘difficult details’ that could take months to sort out, Russian Russian Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Storchak said.

"These are systemic themes, complicated, [and] negotiations are difficult. We must assume that the bank will not start functioning as fast as one could imagine," Storchak said. "It will take months, maybe a year."

The bank will be set up by 2015 Storchack confidently said in June at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum. The project was approved at the BRICS summit in Durban, South Africa in March 2013.

WORLD BANK WHISTLE-BLOWER: “PRECIOUS METALS TO SERVE AS AN UNDERPINNING FOR PAPER CURRENCIES”

WORLD BANK WHISTLE-BLOWER: “PRECIOUS METALS TO SERVE AS AN UNDERPINNING FOR PAPER CURRENCIES”

MAY 7, 2013 BY THE DOC

I had the opportunity yesterday to speak with one of the western world’s most courageous and astute women, Karen Hudes, Former Senior Counsel to the World Bank—now turned whistle-blower.
It was a powerful conversation, as Karen spent 20 years with the World Bank as an attorney and economist, before being “let-go” after reporting internal fraud and corruption.

During the interview Karen indicated that the world is rapidly changing, with western power structures breaking down, economic & political influence gravitating to BRICs nations, all amid a pending currency transition which will highly favor precious metals.   Hudes stated: “All of the countries of the world are going to allow precious metals to serve as currency, and this will be an underpinning for paper currency, as we’ll have both systems at the same time.”

A South African Reader Comments
on Ben Fulford's Latest Post


Hilarious that Fulfie describes the coalition as BRICs (small s for South Africa). There’s been articles locally about how small South Africa is in comparison to the others, and how we’ve only been invited in, probably, coz China wants access to Africa through South Africa. One local cartoonist was brilliant today (a briquette is something you put on a BBQ. LOL) The showerhead on Zuma’s head relates to his belief that having a shower after sex with someone HIV+ would protect you. The cartoonist in question doesn’t like Zuma. LOL.

Status of Japan in Regards
 to New BRICS Financial System


Ben Fulford Blog Post

03/31/2012
RE: BRICS and the new financial system


Hi Ben,

Recently I saw a conference by Alfredo Jalife-Rahme (teacher of political and Social Science at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM)), where explains that BRICS are creating a new international Bank and a new financial system to fight against the power of FMI and the World Bank So my question is the following:? Is this the new financial system you have been talking about If the answer is yes, could you clarify which is the role that Japan is going to have in all this stuff and how BRICS will help to free humanity from the cabal?

Thanks in advance,

PS As I Know You Have a Good Spanish, I Add your Review for the conference link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=IWF3IkyG2j4 


Hello, 

It is true the BRICS are working on a new financial system. There are 134 countries supporting this plan. Another group of 54 countries (the British Commonwealth) also has a plan that is in harmony with the 134 countries.

The obstacle is the governments of the United States, Germany, Japan, France and Italy and their remaining slave states.

Japan's government is on the verge of announcing its support of the new financial system. The Japanese government has already signaled in principle, its support for the creation of a new international economic planning agency based in Japan and with an initial budget of $ 10 trillion or possibly 1000 trillion yen. This organization would carry out large scale development plans like turning the deserts green and replenishing the oceans with fish. It would not, in any way, contradict or work against any plans of existing governments, corporations or development organizations. It would work in harmony with them.

The 5 nations that have controlled the previous financial system and the families that run those nations are negotiating a transition right now and hopefully some sort of mutually acceptable agreement will be reached soon.

China to export yuan to BRICS

China is reportedly to begin extending loans in yuan to BRICS countries in another step towards internationalizing the national currency and diversifying from the US dollar.

The Chinese Development Bank wants to sign a memorandum of understanding with the country's partners from BRICS group of developing countries on increasing yuan-denominated loans, while partners increase loans in their national currencies, The Financial Times reports, citing people familiar with the talks.

The move aims to increase trade volumes between the five nations and diversify from using the US dollar.

Brazil and South Africa were quick to react to the proposal, saying they expect the lending pledge to be included into a master agreement to be signed in New Delhi on March 29.

“We will discuss the creation of structures and mechanisms for lending in local currencies in order to maximize economic and financial transactions between the countries that are members of the accord,” Brazil’s development bank BNDES said.

China, with 54 per cent of its foreign reserves in US dollars, has been trying to diversify from the currency it believes will weaken soon and for a protracted period.

China agreed to use national currencies with Russia, Belarus and Japan for bilateral trade. The country also decreased its foreign reserves in dollars recently in favor of the Australian and Canadian currencies.
