  • Ukraine Will Fall To Russia; Obama Looks Weak In Comparison To Putin; Stocks? 8 comments
    Aug 28, 2014 11:27 PM | about stocks: CTIX

    The EU's Health Care Venture Market And Kevetrin

    European money, stock markets and venture capital are very important to North America's Canadian and US capital markets. Albeit in differing measures, this is probably unanimously agreed. In 2009, I was told by a European healthcare venture capitalist, that early stage capital for medical related ventures no longer existed, and that any company in need of funding should be on the cusp of generating substantial revenue. Indeed this was after the 2008 crash, and I would surmise that there were at least a few exceptions to this. One of the exceptions shortly thereafter in 2012, was Cellceutix (OTCMKTS:CTIX) whose drug Kevetrin, was offered a University of Bologna sponsorship for a Health EU and or FDA 1b-2A. The sitz im leben of the Bologna/Kevetrin deal is a powerful validation, as to how Kevetrin was perceived early to be a mega blockbuster. Without such, there is no way in heaven, hell or earth between that Kevetrin would have obtained what it did, when it did, from an Italian University. Yet there are those who project Kevetrin to be little more than a very safe tumor suppressor.Wait until Kevetrin is given to stage 2 and 3 cancer patients. Although announced in January 2013, the discussion between Bologna and Cellceutix, probably would have had to have begun in mid 2012.

    Will The Fall Of Ukraine Produce Similar EU Market Conditions?

    I am not suggesting that the fall of Ukraine, will be as disastrous as the subprime market meltdown of 2008 and 2009. However, I do believe that we have the following near term issues that could cause the general stock market in both Europe and America to substantially correct.

    Vladimir Putin The Strongest Leader In Europe

    Vladimir Putin will be perceived by his friends and enemies as a man who keeps his word. He is goal is to reconstitutue the former Soviet Union. America needs the likes of Douglas McArthur, Jimmy Doolittle, and George Patton to stop Putin. Such types of men are no longer regarded by today's politically correct as desirable leaders. NATO and Obama are perceived as weak, reactionary and afraid of Putin. Long term we are positioned to loose. Our solution with 17 trillion in national dept, and a stubbornly high unemployment rate, is to admit millions of more low to non skilled immigrants and provide them with government benefits. Indeed we should force companies to remain in America, some obscene profit makers must pay for this. Also, we can focus upon Isis, they have yet to develop air power, thus we can play hit and run. However, major issues such as nuclear Iran and Russian aggression, NATO and America will resort to sanctions.

    The winters of 2014-2016, will be major tests as Russia has the ability to raise natural gas prices much higher to it's Occidental neighbors. Of course many Americans will pretend that they have historical amnesia, with regards to 2008, when candidate, later president Obama's message heralded solar and wind energy, as over conventional coal, gas, and oil. Now 6 years later, and trillions of dollars spent, the only way to help Western Europe is with coal, gas and oil. It doth now appear that Sarah Palin's Tea Baggers are the true genius' with their infamous blue collar "Drill Baby Drill". Had we developed the hydrocarbon rich Atlantic and if we were yet using king coal, we could have had enough spare energy to help Europe. Remember we were falsely told in years prior to 2009, that we could never drill our way to energy independence. Who were these prophetic-liars? Where have they all gone? Like an empty well, maybe we should plug and abandon them.

    Eclectic Ineffective Action Equal An Afflicted Europe.

    Our sanctions, combined with rhetoric will not keep Europe warm for the next three to four winters. Our bold commander in chief, has czar like ordered our military to retrofit and switch from diesel fuel/kerosene at $4.00 a gallon to biofuels at $26.00 a gallon. I am sure that Putin, has choice words to describe the previous biofuel shinsky. Putin, will continue to wink his eye toward his faithful and float giant pictures of a friendly bear, like he did at the winter games. Drilling off the US east coast and in the Atlantic is many years away, unless of course someone appointed a competent oil and gas drilling czar. Dr. Putin, the PhD in economics and judo expert seems to be tossing Barrack Hussein Obama and the EU around. If political and economic weakness ever begin to out weigh low interest rates, watch out below!

    The Bright Spot!

    Although Cellceutix must be regarded as a very speculative stock. One is which you could loose your entire investment. Kevetrin seems to have been regarded very highly by the University of Bologna.

    What thinkest thou?

    It's not just Putin alone. You can't just annex whole swathes of a country without public support no matter how strong the soviet distortion field.

     

    A lot of these people in East Ukraine regard themselves as Russian, and they always have. When 3 men get around a table and the end of WWII and calve up Europe like slices of pizza it's not going to be perfect. Whatever the illegal methods of the Russians, if this is what the people want then there's no point starting a war over it. ( although after every Great Depression there has been a big war since the beginning of human history).

     

    You're right about energy though, massive problem. In the UK our latest generation of nuclear power stations can't come soon enough.

     

    America will be foolish to start a war with a country that has enough tanks to flatten Europe, regardless of how many missiles are fired (although I hope it won't come to that).

    I second your intellect, emotion and passion. I believe that Regan and the Saudi's lowered Oil prices in the 1980's to stop Russia's expansionist plot. However, we are not in the position for many reasons to do that.

     

    Gen Patton, believed that War with Russia was inevitable, the key is understanding when to fight it. It appears as though Churchill believed the same. Also, the Russians military leadership has said that if we become involved in Eastern Europe there will be WWIII.

     

    So, I would like to do a lot to avoid it, but frankly I do not believe that we are prepared for it. Our major peaceful weapon energy has been disabled by government policy.
    Putin views Western Europe and America as decadent. He believes the he must protect one part of Europe from the Western side. In order to do that he must eliminate several major powers. This is quite serious, I do not think most people want to understand this.

     

    Your reference to Yalta is salient, I do regard that as the original sin in this matter. Its seems as Putin is coming back for Russia's pieces of the pizza. At some point either Putin must sneak attack or he risks an all out war with NATO. If he chooses neither, then he must relinquish some of his pieces.

     

    The key is which do you think that Putin will do? Which scenario does America's current leadership provide him with motivation to do?

    Putin wants what every dictator wants, more loyal followers. He is certainly going the right way about it... Hearts and minds of the people of Eastern Ukraine. Russia will not start a war, they can't afford to, they don't need to anyway.

     

    Supporting the rebels with troops, training and equipment. Its a show of support from a country that everyone there wants to be a part of.

     

    For those who aren't fighting he sent in a convoy of trucks hurriedly spray painted white (I laughed at the irony when I saw them). Of course they didn't have soldiers or equipment in them, he didn't need trucks for that. Russian military can pass freely into Ukraine. The only reason why the Russian aid trucks were "halted" at the border was to get on global media, thats why they pulled off when the story was over.

     

    No, they contained food and water for the people surrounded by the government troops who have cut them off from power and water to make life hard for the rebels. The government forces seem like the bad guys and are painted as fascists ( just look at the captured Ukrainian soldiers paraded through the streets and were hit by rotten fruit by their own people).

     

    When all the dust settles and everyone is weary of the conflict talks will be set up the people will choose independence and when a new border is drawn Russia will annex the area to cheers and celebration in the streets.

     

    Russia wants clear access to Crimea where their largest Naval port is, a place of strong strategic significance for them.

     

    There isn't going to be a war between two established nations. No one can afford it, besides well all have the nuclear toys these days, we'll just rattle them if things get nasty. No one wants that either.

    Author’s reply » So Russia will annex a major portion of Ukraine and a much smaller Ukraine will continue, somewhat similar to Georgia.
    There is certainly precedent for that.

     

    I am sure the Chinese are watching, they would love to have Taiwan back and reasoning is about the exact same. China does have an almost fully functional aircraft carrier, many submarines and of course a lot more.

     

    After Ukraine is divided like Pizza, then who will be next?

    We get through it. Take my word for it but there are powerful people who are never in the public eye who work tirelessly for no recognition just to maintain the status quo. Things that are just too important to leave to heads of state.

     

    Also, more than ever our world is governed by the need to make money. And for the most part war benefits no one in the long run (war profiteers aside). Happy countries are profitable countries. There is a member of Goldman advising every major government of the G8 and most of the G20. Why do you think we went into Libya and not Syria -ultra low sulphur diesel- found only in libya.

     

    You should check out this video (a truly great man who used to lead one of the UK's smaller political parties). The video is a bit old but what he says is truer than ever.

    Author’s reply » Thanks a lot Pogoh, I will check this out on tomorrow, my spouses computer has sound, mine does not. Please check out Cellceutix, I think every physician should be aware of what they are doing with both cancer, and also antibiotics.

    I did listen to your recommended link. I found that this gentleman provided me with historical pinions to mount some of what I have already been thinking.

     

    I do have several points where I beg to differ with him. However, my focus is upon where I agree with him, which is the vast majority of what he said.

     

    We are in a multi-polar world and I think that America is both over confident and arrogant. I also believe that we have become both decadent and immoral.

     

    Existentialism, nihilism and secular humanism dominate America. I love the America that I grew up in, I yet love America, but ..... and I end here.

     

    Thanks I Did Profit
