This has to be among the most significant news stories of the year, if not the decade and the first part of the 21st century!! The fact that among these six new members, we have Iran and Saudi Arabia – the formerly sworn enemies – says it all.  In addition, India and China decided to set up a group of expert officials to solve their border dispute, the problem that has been messing up their relationships for decades!! To get a grasp of the magnitude of the event, please take a look at the chart below, depicting the growth of BRICS economies compared to G7, according to IMF data:

The chart is clear: Even before the expansion, the BRICS economies were larger than the G7.  But with the inclusion of Saudi Arabia, Iran, Egypt, Ethiopia, United Arab Emirates, and Argentina, the Bricks will shoot from 32.1% of the Global GDP to probably around 38 or 40%.

But the actual significance surpasses the GDP numbers (whose “concoction” by the West is disputed by many economists).  The five BRICS have over 40% of the world population and, with the new additions, will probably approach 50%.

Even more important is the obvious observation that with the inclusion of Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Ethiopia, the entire Middle East, including the Suez Canal, whose geostrategic significance cannot be underestimated, is passing from the West to the Control of the BRICS.  In addition, oil prices will be controlled by them as they include the biggest oil producers. Goodbye petro-dollar!!

A complete geopolitical disaster for the U.S. and the West is unfolding before our eyes! We heard that the State Department – in a last-ditch effort to prevent this disaster – was ready the last few days to offer Saudi Arabia nuclear weapons!! This idea has failed…

A side-effect of these developments seems to have hit Greece already.  The shipowners, who, luckily for Greece, control the mass media and therefore have tremendous power over the Mitsotakis government, are pulling the rug under his feet… The wildfires seem to have given the shipowners the excuse to get rid of a treasonous prime minister who has been undermining Greece’s national interests. For eight decades since WWII ended, Greece followed the Yalta agreements: 80-85% of influence over the country belonged to the West and the rest to Russia.  But Mitsotakis went 100% to the West, hurting Greece’s national interests – the interests which have been proven over the centuries to coincide with the shipowners’ interests.

Another huge side-effect will be the collapse of the DC establishment, which depends on the dollar’s power.  The combination of domestic pressure (the rising populist movement under Donald Trump) and big external pressures (defeat in Syria, defeat in Ukraine, defeat in Niger, and the rise of the BRICS) will end the corrupt DC swamp.

But to these hugely important issues, we will return soon…

BRICS leaders announced on Thursday the admission of six new countries from next year as the club of large and populous emerging economies seeks to reshape the global order.

The BRICS — Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa — agreed at their annual summit to make Argentina, Ethiopia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates full members from January 1.

“This membership expansion is historic,” said Chinese President Xi Jinping, whose nation is the most powerful in the group of non-Western states that represents a quarter of the world’s economy.

“The expansion is also a new starting point for BRICS cooperation. It will bring new vigour to the BRICS cooperation mechanism and further strengthen the force for world peace and development.”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi later congratulated the new menber, saying, “India has always supported the expansion of BRICS. India has always believed that adding new members will strengthen BRICS as an organisation,” he said.

  1. Very interesting! Though, this will not be reported very well by the West/MSM, or will totally be downplayed as nothing great. Boy, but will there be hell to pay down the road by the West!

  2. Have to hand it to Nick and Helleniscope…. what America, Israel and the G7 cabal’s Racketeering and Protection Crime Syndicate is losing control of their client states who no longer fear Economiic , Political , and Military racketeering wars against “Insubordinate” government who will not toe the line of the U.S , UK and Israeli Crime families of the Republican and Democratic Parties..

    No successful International Crime Syndicate can succed without a Corrupt Criminal FBI, DOJ< and Justice System of the U.S. and G7 Bloc …who have been weaponized not only to oppress political opposition leaders , like Donald Trump , but international foreign leaders of democratically elected countriews , like Syria to control the economic, politcal , and military sovereignty of those countries!

    Importantly , it is the leaders of the Democratic , Republican , and EU?Nato Parliament who have violated all the Rico Act laws against organized Crimes in imposing illegal Economic Sanctions which are legalized by the Corrupt FbI DOJ. and Judges of the U.S government which allow them to "Extort, Coerce, Money launder, murder, embezzle, support Human trafficing of the borders of America , Blackmail, bribe , and guess what …"OBstruct INterstate and International Trade ..thruout the world , and literally confiscate the assets of foreign Government and civilians , as we saw EU and U.S do to Unvaccianted Protestors , and opposing countries of America… Thats right Ladies and gentlemen…right in front of all our eyes …they have robbed the gold Assets of Veneaueal and most of the countries of the world , under the disguise that they had the right to do this , when in fact they were simply Gangsters robbing the peoples treasuries !

    Economic Sanctions have also been called "Crimes Against Humanity" by UN reports since they are designed to starve the people of targeted countries from providing for their families food and medical needsw, and provide Energy Resources for the people like in Syria to run their businesses or drive their cars , so that the gangster could force them to leave their country or surrender their elected leader to the DOJ of the United States , who will then install like in the Ukraine a fascist regime loyal to the Degenearte of the U.S Congress and government.

    Lets be clear …WW3 has started … and sides are being established …and this is what the Ruling Parties of America have done ..and the civilians will be the collateral damage….

    This is why teh Brics will expand and this is why Russia and China are the number one threat in the world to America's Economic monopolies

    Now you know why the war in the Ukraine against Russia is all about …to chop off the head of the leader of the the Brics expansion , who without Russia's military protection …the Bric could never rise to resist U.S. Fascism.

  3. The train is racing full speed ahead. I see the brick wall. Brace for the crash. It cannot be stopped. Let us pray for one another.
