On Schedule: Russia And Turkey - Emergence Of A 'New Alliance', Davos Elites Call For Ban On Cash,

Who could have guessed this alliance? Oh, never mind...Ezekiel... over 2,500 years ago: 

Emergence of a New Alliance: Russia, Turkey Join Together Fighting Terrorists

The Russian Defence Ministry said on January 18 that Russian and Turkish air forces launched a joint operation against Islamic State (IS) militants holding the town of al-Bab northeast of Aleppo.

Lieutenant-General Sergei Rudskoi, the Main Operations Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Federation, said it was the first time the air forces of Russia and Turkey were engaged in a joint operation. The air strikes were conducted with the consent of the Syrian government.

A group of Russian aircraft, consisting of four Su-24Ms, four Su-25s and one bomber Su-34, as well as eight Turkish fighter jets, four F-16s and four F-4s, participated in the first joint air strike. The action comes one day after the US military said on January 17 that it had carried out airstrikes to support the Turkish offensive to free al-Bab from the Islamic State.

The alliance between Russia and Turkey has been getting increasingly close recently, especially after the two countries brokered a Syria truce in late December to join together preparing Syrian talks in Astana, Kazakhstan, to take place on January 23.

Turkey is in talks with Russia on purchasing the advanced long-range S-400 air defense systems to protect its skies. Hardly anyone but Russia could offer Turkey a better deal on air defense. It is widely believed that the S-400 is the best air defense system in the world. With Russia’s help Turkey could start the production on its own soil to greatly enhance its industrial base.

Ankara also seeks procurement deals in electronic systems, ammunitions and missile technology. General Hulusi Akar, the head of the Turkish armed forces’ General Staff, visited Russia last November to discuss military cooperation.
During the August 9 summit in Saint-Petersburg, Russia and Turkey signed a declaration on unprecedented partnership in defense industry. The parties have also agreed to form a joint military and intelligence mechanism to coordinate their activities in the Middle East.
According to Turkish Defense Minister Fikri Isik, Turkey will do everything needed for cooperation with Russia on Syria. He said «a new page has opened» in the history of defense cooperation with Russia.

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, in his last major speech before leaving office, described Russia on Wednesday as the biggest threat to the international liberal order and said Washington must work with Europe to stand up to Vladimir Putin.
"Defending the liberal international order requires that we resist the forces of European disintegration and maintain our longstanding insistence on a Europe, whole, free and peaceful," said Biden.
Biden was speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos two days before the inauguration of Donald Trump as U.S. president.

Roughly two weeks ago, when writing about the cash ban in India, I stated:

 If you think the Elites aren’t watching this unfold with sheer delight you’re mistaken. Globally a war on cash has been declared. And India has now proved that it can be done with little consequence. The fact it INCREASE tax hauls (something every Government on the planet wants) is just icing on the cake.

Fast forward to this week at the Davos Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland, and Nobel Prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz all but said the exact same thing.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has already removed 86% of his country's currency from circulation in an attempt to curb tax evasion, tackle corruption and shut down the shadow economy.

Should the US follow suit?
Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel Prize-winning economist, thinks so. Phasing out currency and moving towards a digital economy would, over the long term, have “benefits that outweigh the cost,” the Columbia University professor said on day one of the World Economic Forum's Annual Meeting in Davos…
“I believe very strongly that countries like the United States could and should move to a digital currency,” he said, “so that you would have the ability to trace this kind of corruption. There are important issues of privacy, cyber-security, but it would certainly have big advantages.”

Again… the War on Cash is not slowing down. India effectively removed 86% of the physical cash in circulation and no one was forced to resign.
Put simply, India signaled to the global elites that you can implement a near complete ban on physical cash, and there are no real consequences as far as political aspirations.
We believe that the Elites will be pushing for this policy to hit the US. If you think this is impossible consider that Stiglitz openly called for the US to ban cash in the article above.
Indeed, we've uncovered a secret document outlining how the Fed plans to ban physical cash and incinerate savings in the coming months.

"U.S. President-elect Donald Trump's nominee to be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations will blast the world body over its treatment of Israel at her Senate confirmation hearing, according to prepared testimony seen by Reuters on Tuesday.

'Nowhere has the UN's failure been more consistent and more outrageous than in its bias against our close ally Israel,' Republican South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley said in the opening remarks for her appearance on Wednesday before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

'Any honest assessment also finds an institution that is often at odds with American national interests and American taxpayers,' the speech says.

In the remarks, Haley offered some praise for UN activities, such as health and food programs that have saved millions of lives, weapons monitoring and some peacekeeping missions, in something of a departure from Trump, who has disparaged the United Nations."

From "liberal" to "progressive"...

From "global warming" to "climate change"...

From "new world order" to "liberal international order"...

The constant repackaging is exhausting.

Come Lord Jesus!
