Here is a STRATFOR essay about the newer resurgently powerful Russia. Pay close attention to the faux democracy paradigm to entice foreign investment combined with a strengthened central government with Russian nationalism in mind. Part of this faux democracy is the encouragement of multiple political parties to provide the image of a loyal opposition to the political party in power. The reality that these multiple political parties have disguised ties to Kremlin authoritarianism.
The offshoot is a Russia powerful and strong and able to be a force to make America and the NATO military forces take notice of a potentially aggressive Russia.

My Conspiracy Theory guy Tony Newbill has found what might be the latest. Accused rapist Dominique Strauss Kahn (DSK) is really a hero that was set up because he discovered that tons and tons of Ft Knox gold are missing. According to the EU Times Kahn was expecting a payment in gold to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) as per some deal between the USA and the IMF. Again according to the EU Times when the gold did not arrive, DSK came to the USA to get validation that there was gold in Ft Knox.
Again according to the EU Times the reason to blame DSK for rape was to hide info on Ft Knox missing gold. The Conspiracy Theory is promoted from a Russian FSB (formerly KGB) secret report made public by Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. If indeed Putin is pushing the missing Ft Knox-gold-destroy-DSK’s-life Conspiracy Theory, then Putin is trying to push this credulity because of Ron Paul’s call for a Ft Knox gold audit for transparency to the public.
Below is the email that Tony Newbill sent to me. It is a copy and paste job. You can read it to make your own decisions.
