Say no to war with China

George Soros recently said this in regards to the People's Republic of China:

"China is not the only authoritarian regime in the world but it is the wealthiest, strongest and technologically most advanced. This makes Xi Jinping the most dangerous opponent of open societies. That’s why it’s so important to distinguish Xi Jinping’s policies from the aspirations of the Chinese people. The social credit system, if it became operational, would give Xi total control over the people. Since Xi is the most dangerous enemy of the open society, we must pin our hopes on the Chinese people, and especially on the business community and a political elite willing to uphold the Confucian tradition."
The Godfather of color revolutions, US softpower regime change, is *hoping* against hope that his Open Society foundation and the National Endowment for Democracy can incite the people of China against their government, the people whom 85% (at least) of which massively approve of their government. And for good reason, their living standards have skyrocketed in the last 30 years.

The softpower regime change arm of US imperialism lost it's chance with Tienanmen Square in 1989.

That was their one shot, one opportunity.

So, why do I bring this all up?

To show you what the most likely plan of action is for the US moving forward:

100 page document from the RAND corporation published in 2016 that outlines that the strategy the US has to "deal" with China. And it involves sacking the US navy to target Chinese infrastructure, to halt their economic growth, and set them back for several decades, this can be done in their estimation, without nuclear weapons which would end human civilization, and their throne atop of it. China wouldn't use nuclear weapons in response, because they're not savages.

The US military estimates it has until 2025 to be able to successfully carry out this kind of preemptive attack before China's military would be able to shut it down entirely.
Read the document, it's insightful.

This 9/11, remember that the Imperialists on Wall Street and in Washington DC are the real terrorists

Today is the 20th anniversary of t he 2001 9/11 terrorist attacks that demolished the world trade center “twin towers,”  and tower 7. The Pentagon was also struck by a plane. 

The US immediately invaded Afghanistan in response to these terror attacks, and pushed through the patriot act through congress and the senate. Legislators who were opposed to the patriot act were poisoned with anthrax, or were sent anthrax that never made it to their intended targets. 

What is not widely known, despite having an ending credit scene in the film Rambo III dedicated to them, is that the Mujahideen, the precursor to the Taliban and Al-Qaeda, was a direct creation of the US to draw the Soviet Union into “their own Vietnam.” As Zbigniew Brezenski told a French newspaper in 1998.

Years prior to 9/11 the Washington DC think tank Project for a New American Century urged the need for a “new pearl harbor” so the US could secure it’s “national interests” in Eurasia and the middle east. 

General Clark famously said the plan after 9/11 was immediately drawn as such; to take down the governments of Iraq, Syria, Lebadon, Sudan, Somalia, Libya and finishing off with Iran.

After the US failed to do this it sought to achieve it’s objectives, as laid out by long time US strategist Zbiginiew Brzenski:
"To put it in a terminology that hearkens back to the more brutal age of ancient empires, the three grand imperatives of imperial geo-strategy are to prevent collusion and maintain security dependence among the vassals, to keep tributaries pliant and protected, and to keep the barbarians from coming together." Or as is more commonly understood “divide and conquer.”

Interestingly enough, Zbigniew came out and said one of the greatest problems for US unipolarity would be a mutual alliance from mutual grievances from Russia, China, and Iran, the 3 countries the US now refers to as it’s “great power competitors.”

"Potentially, the most dangerous scenario would be a grand coalition of China, Russia, and perhaps Iran, an "antihegemonic" coalition united not by ideology but by complementary grievances. It would be reminiscent in scale and scope of the challenge once posed by the Sino-Soviet bloc, though this time China would likely be the leader and Russia the follower. Averting this contingency, however remote it may be, will require a display of U.S. geostrategic skill on the western, eastern, and southern perimeters of Eurasia simultaneously."

While the US occupied Afghanistan, Opium production and terrorist training camps exploded in number. While the media assured the domestic US population (you and me) that the US was “fighting a war on terror,” what was actually occurring, with our tax dollars in our name, was quite the opposite. 

Afghanistan was used as a central hub of strategic chaos from which the US could export drugs and terror to Southern Russia, (Chechnya) Western China (Xinjiang) and Eastern Iran, along it’s entire border. 

Not content with the “progress” that was being made, further plans were drawn to collapse multiple governments in the middle east in what is now known as the Arab Spring.  Social media and the Hilary Clinton State department played a major role in the Arab Spring. The maximal objective of the Arab spring was to collapse all remaining independent governments with Al-Qaeda and many other jihadist groups armed and funded and trained by the US and it’s allies, the UK, Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States. And then take those forces to Iran, and then Moscow and Beijing. 

Russia and Iran, wanting stability in the middle east, seeing what the US’s long term plans were, stepped in to aid Syria, while the US was using Al-Qaeda and co to fight against the Syrian government. 

Syria still lives on, although the US, with 1,000 troops or so, and via Kurdish proxies and ISIS and Al-Qaeda  affiliates currently occupies 1/3rd of Syria, the eastern region where the countries oil and wheat fields are located. The US is stealing Syrian Oil and wheat, trying to starve the Syrian people into submission. 

Libya was not fortunate enough to survive the US’s war of terror, although initially successful in holding off US backed jihadists on the ground, the US saw fit to bomb Libya for 7 months straight to give their proxies on the ground the support they needed to collapse the Libyan state. 

Libya today exports about 10% of the oil it did while Gaddafi was still alive. The objective and taking out an oil selling competitor who sought to unite the African continent was successful. Before the NATO bombing Libya had the highest standard of living. Today Libya has open air slave markets and constant fighting as a result of the NATO bombing campaign, which targeted Libyan infrastructure, water treatment facilities, and things people need to live decent lives. 

So now, the US has recently pulled ground forces out of Afghanistan, it remains to be seen if the Taliban will bring stability and economic development to their country, by working with China Russia and Iran, or if they will act as US proxies to continue to export terror and chaos. 

The New York Times, the paper of record in the US recently ran an op-ed titled “What comes after The War on Terrorism, The War on China?”

While the COVID-19 shutdowns resulted in a closure of 60% of small businesses in the US
, that, along with the CARES act that was passed unanimously has resulted in the largest upward transfer of wealth in human history,  and while medicare for all would have saved 40% of those who have died from COVID-19, the US continues to spend it’s population’s money and lives on exercising their will on the Eurasian continent with ever greater diminishing returns. 

This 9/11, never forget and remember that the Imperialists on Wall Street and in Washington DC are the real terrorists.

Bloomberg openly calling for Regime change of the democratically elected Maduro gvoernment

Every now and then, I come across an article that just makes my blood boil and I have to dispel it. This is one of those nows, or thens.  

"One of the defining features of the Trump years has been the collapse of bipartisan consensus on foreign policy. There is at least one notable exception, however: support for a democratic transition in Venezuela."

1. The bipartisan consensus on empire didn't go anywhere. Democrats and Republicans have routinely voted to intervene in Venezuela, Nicaragua, Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, Hong Kong and is Belarus next?

2. Democratic transition is code for "destroy the Chavismo movement and the social gains made for the working class of Venezuela and reimpose neoliberalism and privatize everything and anything that western capitalists can make a profit from privatizing.


When Juan Guaido, the leader of Venezuela’s national assembly and the man recognized by the U.S. and more than 60 other nations as the country’s interim president, attended the State of the Union address in Washington this year, he received a standing ovation from Democrats and Republicans. The next day, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi saluted his courage. “We believe the plight of the people of Venezuela is a challenge to the conscience of the world,” she said.

1. Gross Nancy, gross.

2. 75% of countries (148 countries vs. 48 countries) acknowledge Maduro as the true president. 

3.  Guaido studied public administration in George Washington University and The Instituto de Estudios Superiores de Administración, a private non-profit Venezuelan business school who is responsible for installing horrid neoliberal economic policies before Chavez took power. 

4.  81% of Venezuelans did not know who Juan Guaidó was (as recent as 2019)

Democratic support for President Donald Trump’s initial 2019 Venezuela policy — support for Guaido and sanctions against President Nicolas Maduro — is particularly important now. In December, Venezuela is scheduled to hold a rigged election for the legislature that Guaido now leads. If Joe Biden wins the U.S. election in November, he will have to decide how best to respond to what happens in Venezuela a month later. Early signs are that he will do the right thing. Biden was the first Democratic presidential candidate in 2019 to support Guaido as interim president, tweeting three weeks after Guaido was recognized by Trump: “It is time for Maduro to step aside and allow a democratic transition.”

1. Elections in Venezuela are already probably the most heavily monitored in the world. Successive reports from hostile sources such as the European Union and the Carter Center have strongly praised the election system (MacLeod, 2018: 60-1). Indeed, President Jimmy Carter (2012) stated that the Venezuelan elections were ‘the best in the world’. The 2018 elections in Venezuela were of note because they took place under a fractured US-supported opposition, with some boycotting the proceedings. The US also demanded opposition presidential candidate Henri Falcon stand down, in an attempt to delegitimize the vote before it started. However, the vote took place in complete normalcy and under the auspices of senior election officials from around the world, who testified to the election’s validity. The Latin American Council of Electoral Experts (CEELA), consisting of senior election co-ordinators, most from countries openly hostile to Venezuela, praised the ‘high level of security and efficiency’, noting that the vote reflected ‘the will of its citizens, freely expressed in the ballot box’ (CEELA, 2018). The African mission’s preliminary report characterized the election as a ‘fair, free, and transparent expression of the human right to vote and participate in the electoral process’, endorsing the proceedings’ ‘comprehensive guarantees, audits, the high-tech nature of the electoral process’ (Venezuelanalysis, 2018). Indeed, the strongest criticism the international election teams’ reports had was that some polling stations were not on the ground floor, meaning some voters had trouble accessing them. In comparison, the Colombian election, which pitted the conservative Ivan Duque against the leftist Gustavo Petro, took place under a heightened state of terror, with Petro narrowly surviving an assassination attempt, while many of his supporters were not as lucky. The incumbent conservative party under President Alvaro Uribe had overseen a massacre of over 10,000 civilians (Parkin, 2018). Colombia is also the most dangerous place to be a human rights defender or trade unionist, as many more unionists are killed inside Colombia than in the rest of the world combined (Human Rights Watch, 2008). This is partially because the military and paramilitaries have been trained by the US to see agitating for better wages as a communist conspiracy to destroy the country and to respond with a clenched fist. The paramilitaries – right-wing death squads linked to the government – issued generalized death threats to those who tried to vote for Petro. There was widespread vote-buying, with American observers, such as Daniel Kovalik, mistaken for voters and offered money to vote. There were over 1,000 official electoral fraud complaints (Kovalik, 2018).

Biden has been careful to say he does not support “regime change for Venezuela, the phrase used to describe the George W. Bush administration’s approach to Iraq. But he has come close to endorsing the concept in substance. As he told the Americas Quarterly in March, Maduro “is a dictator, plain and simple, but the overriding goal in Venezuela must be to press for a democratic outcome through free and fair elections, and to help the Venezuelan people rebuild their country.”

I mean, this speaks for itself. The government of Venezuela was democratically elected. The US wants to overthrow it because Venezuela has the largest oil reserves on earth and it's Bolivarian socialism is providing quite the example and inspiration for the rest of the South American continent, as is always the case with popular governments that aren't letting Washington extract their country's resources and labor for super profits. The cold warrior domino theory comes into play and the threat of a good example has to be eliminated, lest it spreads. 

As Noam Chomsky more eloquently said

US planners from Secretary of State Dean Acheson in the late 1940s to the present have warned that "one rotten apple can spoil the barrel." The danger is that the "rot"-social and economic development-may spread.

This "rotten apple theory" is called the domino theory for public consumption. The version used to frighten the public has Ho Chi Minh getting in a canoe and landing in California, and so on.
Maybe some US leaders believe this nonsense- it’s possible-but rational planners certainly don’t. They understand that the real threat is the "good example."

Jefferey Epstein

Jefferey Epstein, teacher turned banker turned billionaire with a taste for young girls was found dead in his cell at the  HIGH SECURITY Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City . Epstein was one suicide watch after his previous suicide attempt 3 weeks ago, but was taken OFF suicide watch 12 days before his death on august 11th.
 President Donald Trump has retweeted conspiracies suggesting Bill and Hilary Clinton are responsible for his death. Found in Epstein’s flight logs were numerous mentions of Bill Clinton and Donald Trump.

 Trump has been quoted as saying: “I’ve known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy. He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life."

While Bill Clinton himself was on Epstein’s flight logs at least 26 times.

Current and former presidents aside, many powerful and wealthy people have been implicated in Epstein’s crimes.

On June 30, 2008, after Epstein pleaded guilty to a state charge (one of two) of procuring for prostitution a girl below age 18,
 he was sentenced to 18 months in prison. While most convicted sex offenders in Florida are sent to state prison, Epstein was instead housed in a private wing of the Palm Beach County Stockade and, according to the sheriff's Office, was after 3 and a half months allowed to leave the jail on "work release" for up to 12 hours a day, 6 days a week. This contravened the sheriff's own policies requiring a maximum remaining sentence of 10 months and making sex offenders ineligible for the privilege. He was allowed to come and go outside of specified release hours. 

American officials across the political spectrum have demanded answers and investigations into Epstein's death.

Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska sent a letter to Attorney General William Barr Saturday afternoon demanding the Department of Justice investigate Jeffrey Epstein's apparent suicide in jail. Sasse also called for those who allowed Epstein's death to occur under their watch to be fired.

“We need answers. Lots of them,” Ocasio-Cortez, a member of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, tweeted.

 If nothing else, his life, death, crimes and unanswered questions are a perfect example of how wealthy powerful elites live in a different criminal justice system than the working class.
