If China invades Taiwan to unify it with the mainland, the United States will go to war to defend Taiwan and send U.S. troops to fight the invaders. That is the commitment made last week by President Joe Biden. Asked by CBS's Scott Pelley on "60 Minutes" if the U.S. would fight in defense of... Read More
In a rational environment, the 77th session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA) would discuss alleviating the trials and tribulations of the Global South, especially Africa. That won’t be the case. Like a deer caught in the geopolitical headlights, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres issued platitudes about a gloomy “winter of global discontent,” even as the... Read More
The Brandon Government still claims to recognize that Taiwan is a part of China, but they are also saying they will start a world war with China to defend Taiwan’s independence. RT: Okay, Joe. Okay. How about you, people of the world? Do you want a world war for anal marriage in Taiwan? Meanwhile, Taiwan... Read More
Amidst serious tremors in the world of geopolitics, it is so fitting that this year’s Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) heads of state summit should have taken place in Samarkand – the ultimate Silk Road crossroads for 2,500 years. When in 329 BC Alexander the Great reached the then Sogdian city of Marakanda, part of the... Read More
Here’s an example of one of those things I’ve been saying forever and ever coming into the headlines. RT: The US Department of Defense will need an extra $42 billion in the next fiscal year to account for soaring inflation and rising procurement prices, according to the National Defense Industrial Association. In a report released... Read More
Ultimately, we’re looking at a unipolar world with China at the helm. The West is committing suicide. But that’s okay. RT: roflmao. Putin is so great. These people have literally not even explained the rules – but they keep saying “rules” over and over! The administration of US President Joe Biden has been using the... Read More
Cui Bono?
There’s an ever-growing cohort of increasingly desperate Covid long-haulers, many affected for over two years, having difficult legal conversations about medical early retirement and independence payment support. They need answers, treatments – and to know that we take the situation sufficiently seriously to stop creating more cases. Where’s the herd immunity? Danny Altmann, Professor of... Read More
The Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) in Vladivostok is one of the indispensable annual milestones for keeping up not only with the complex development process of the Russian Far East but major plays for Eurasia integration. Mirroring an immensely turbulent 2022, the current theme in Vladivostok is ‘On the Path to a Multipolar World.’ Russian President... Read More
The problem that the US government is dealing with globally is not totally different than the problem they are facing domestically: people are questioning the legitimacy of their rule. That is why this war against Russia is so important to them – they are attempting to assert that they are the ones in charge, and... Read More
Congress has passed two major infrastructure bills in the last year, but imminent needs remain. The 2021 Bipartisan Infrastructure Law chiefly focused on conventional highway programs, and the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA) mainly centered on energy security and combating climate change. According to the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), over $2 trillion... Read More
Jewish Power knows that money power isn't enough. And military power isn't enough either. Jews have plenty of money, and the Jewish-controlled US military is by far the most powerful — Jews control the whore-politicians who order the generals to threaten or attack nations hated by Zionists. Jews have the Strong Horse of money and... Read More
The world is on the edge of nuclear catastrophe in no small part because of the failure of Western political leaders to be forthright about the causes of the escalating global conflicts. The relentless Western narrative that the West is noble while Russia and China are evil is simple-minded and extraordinarily dangerous. It is an... Read More
In the aftermath of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, President Joe Biden declared to the nation and world: "We are engaged anew in a great battle for freedom. A battle between democracy and autocracy." On her trip to Taiwan, Speaker Nancy Pelosi echoed Biden: "Today, the world faces a choice between democracy and autocracy. America's determination... Read More
Reaching a Million Contrary Rumble Views
In Roger Zelazny's classic 1967 science fiction novel Lord of Light, humans on a distant planet have employed technological devices to establish themselves as gods of the Hindu pantheon, each having particular aspects and attributes. Mara is the Lord of Illusion, able to reshape the perceived world in the minds of all those around him.... Read More
American relations with China in regards to Taiwan have been dictated by years of ambiguous statements and commitments. Now this rhetoric is breaking down and armed conflict seems closer than ever – but is Washington ready to fight over Taiwan, or capable of winning? Assurances and commitments Officially, US policy toward Taiwan is guided by... Read More
Do you see this? Jews have to be on every side of every single issue. Even if you don’t know who Jeffrey Sachs is, you may remember that he was the one a few months ago saying that coronavirus probably originated in a US bio warfare lab. It’s possible he’s getting paid by the Chinese... Read More
They used to call it `the million-man swim.’ That was the US Navy’s sneering dismissal of any Chinese attempt to seize the island of Taiwan by a massive amphibious invasion. The US Navy’s strike carriers, submarines and surface combatants, backed by the Marines and Army in Japan, Okinawa, South Korea and Guam, would tear to... Read More
SAMARKAND – Interconnecting Inner Eurasia is an exercise in Taoist equilibrium: adding piece by piece, patiently, to a gigantic jigsaw puzzle. It takes time, skill, vision, and of course major breakthroughs. A key piece was added to the puzzle recently in Uzbekistan, bolstering the links between the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and the International... Read More
This is a very strange thing. In decades of exposure to Chinese people and in nearly 20 years of living in China, I still cannot understand this nor have I found anyone who can explain it to me. I will provide first a bit of background. It’s no secret that Chinese factories still turn out... Read More
It’s tempting to visualize the overwhelming collective West debacle as a rocket, faster than free fall, plunging into the black void maelstrom of complete socio-political breakdown. The End of (Their) History turns out to be a fast-forward historical process bearing staggering ramifications: way more profound than mere self-appointed “elites” – via their messenger boys/girls –...

SAMARKAND – The ultimate Silk Road city, set at an unrivaled Eurasian trade crossroads, is the ideal spot from which to examine where the New Silk Roads adventure is heading next. For starters, the upcoming summit of heads of state of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) will take place in Samarkand in mid-September. The ancient... Read More
Everyone is going to have to start rooting for China. The enemy of your enemy is your friend in general. This is especially true if your enemy is an evil government run by Jews intent on enslaving and/or slaughtering you. China is “ending” the drills, but establishing a permanent patrol around Taiwan. RT: China said... Read More
When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defied White House signals that she not stop in Taiwan on her valedictory tour of Asian capitals, she ignited the worst diplomatic U.S.-China row in decades. And how did last week's collision turn out for the United States? Writes The New York Times: Speaker Pelosi's trip to Taiwan began with... Read More
Why did Nancy Pelosi go to Taiwan?
A good friend of mine, learning of the impending visit of Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan, recalled Homer’s description of Helen of Troy, “The face that launched a thousand ships and burnt the towers of Ilium.” Well, Nancy ain’t no Helen of Troy, but she might nevertheless be in the... Read More
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s “surprise” trip to Taiwan last week should be “Exhibit A” as to why interventionism is dangerous, deadly, and dumb. Though she claimed her visit won some sort of victory for democracy over autocracy, the stopover achieved nothing of the sort. It was a pointless gesture that brought us closer to military... Read More
I’m not really sure how to explain this, but CBS News has released a documentary which appears to have been based on Daily Stormer articles. The documentary is out somewhere, and I haven’t watched it, but the preview they have up on Twitter starts out talking about how no one knows where any of these... Read More
I don’t know if Americans were ever fiscally responsible, if they ever had a time when saving was valued, where you didn’t borrow for consumption, and where low-quality throwaway goods and products were avoided, but if they did experience such a period in their history, it was brief. Twenty years before Elmer Wheeler’s discovery of... Read More

My 50 Year Odyssey to Truth and Enlightenment
Why do I love China and the Communist Party of China (CPC)? It was not always the case. In fact, for the majority of my life, some 48 years, I hated China and I hated the CPC! Why This Article I want to tell my odyssey, my journey to the West, that has taken me... Read More
Moscow is assessing the possibility that a Washington DC agency played a part in the creation of Covid-19
Russia’s Defense Ministry says it’s investigating the possible role of the US Agency for International Development (USAID) in the creation of the Covid-19 virus. In a press briefing on Thursday, the head of Russia’s Radiation, Chemical and Biological Defense Forces, Lieutenant-General Igor Kirillov, claimed that US-backed bio-laboratories in Ukraine had been conducting questionable research and...

This is the way the “Global War on Terror” (GWOT) ends, over and over again: not with a bang, but a whimper. Two Hellfire R9-X missiles launched from a MQ9 Reaper drone on the balcony of a house in Kabul. The target was Ayman Al-Zawahiri with a $25 million bounty on his head. The once... Read More
The biggest upside of the Nuclear Nancy Air Invasion is that these retards on Fox News can no longer keep claiming that Joe Brandon and his Democrats are agents of the Chinese communists. At least we don’t have to hear that gibberish anymore from Tucker Carlson and others. Of course, most of Fox News will... Read More
Why would the US want to “defend Taiwan”? What does “defending Taiwan” even mean? Who are we defending from what – and why? We’re trying to save the people of an island in China from communism by giving them democracy. This is our business because we are the people who decide what is right and... Read More
Just try to imagine that with everything that is happening in the United States right now, the government of the United States thinks it’s a good idea to go on the other side of the world and harass some people who appear to be very serious in nature. RT: The statements sound cooler and more... Read More
When a man knows he is about to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully, said Dr. Samuel Johnson. If there is any benefit to be realized from the collision between China and the U.S. over Speaker Nancy Pelosi's proposed trip to Taiwan, it is this: America needs to reflect long and... Read More
It was obvious that after 4 years of the peacemonger Donald Trump, a big reason of why the Jews were in such a rush to overthrow him is that they wanted wars. Hillary Clinton had campaigned on war with Russia and others. When Biden came in, you had these 3 main enemies: Russia, China, and... Read More
That Nadezhda Mandelstam quote (which, by the way, I first encountered in Simon Leys‘ 1976 book Chinese Shadows) is connected in some way I haven‘t
In The Grand Chessboard, Zbigniew Brzezinski speculated about the American unipolar hegemon’s ultimate geostrategic nightmare: “a new ‘antihegemonic’ coalition, formed around the three powers with the greatest geopolitical stake in reducing America’s primacy in Eurasia.” Those three powers, of course, are Russia, China, and Iran. Such a development, Brzezinski observed, would “bring together the world’s... Read More
This should really be published as an update to the China article I already published before this statement was released, but this morning I spent 5 hours writing down a cinematic dream I had, and the staff is gone because it’s Sunday. So I’m publishing this as a separate article. Bloomberg: US House Speaker Nancy... Read More
When Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi added to the itinerary of a valedictory trip through Asia the island of Taiwan, she could not have been oblivious to the reaction she would produce in a stunned Beijing. Thus, when the Financial Times revealed that the speaker would be visiting Taiwan, which China regards as a... Read More
Those were the days, in 1955, at the legendary Bandung conference in Indonesia, when the newly emancipated Global South started dreaming of building a new world, via what became configured later in 1961 in Belgrade as the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM). The Empire of Chaos – and Lies – would never allow a starring role for... Read More
That friendly fist bump with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman might not have been such a defining moment — had Biden not first set himself up. During the 2020 campaign, Biden said that when he encounters the prince, he would treat him like the "pariah" he was for having authorized the murder and dismemberment... Read More
The U.S. Government’s “Nuclear Primacy” meta-strategy says that there are “acceptable” levels of destruction of America in a nuclear war against Russia and/or China, so long as America “comes out on top” globally, at the end. Brian Berletic walks us through the Rand Corporation’s plan for the Pentagon to attack China during the narrow window... Read More
DID YOU notice the theme on the Tucker Carlson Tonight, July 18? Tucker Carlson got into TikTok mode, blaming China for pervasive American decadence, decades in the making. The host petulantly saddled China and its algorithms for, among other things, America's gutter culture, as acted out on TikTok. If we are to believe Mr. Carlson,... Read More
The Suicide Spectacular Summer Show, currently on screen across Europe, proceeds in full regalia, much to the astonishment of virtually the whole Global South: a trashy, woke Gotterdammerung remake, with Wagnerian grandeur replaced by twerking. Decadent Roman Emperors at least exhibited some degree of pathos. Here we’re just faced by a toxic mix of hubris,... Read More
Just to be clear, when they talk about “Beijing” here, they’re not talking about the Chinese national government, but the municipal/city government of the actual city of Beijing. This was the first time anywhere in China had tried to limit movement based on a vax, and they canceled it in two days because of public... Read More
Previously: NASA Says China Planning to Take Over the Moon, Announces New Race to Space If you land in Guangzhou or Beijing, you feel like you’ve landed on a Moon Base in the year 2186. Americans simply have no idea how much further technologically advanced China is beyond America. This is real life: if a... Read More
Russia and China are in the news lately for obvious reasons. During the Cold War, Russia, as the core of the Soviet Union, posed the greatest challenge to US hegemony(or the greatest threat to the Free World, depending on one's perspective). And China, though backward, represented leadership in the Third World's challenge to both US... Read More
Schizos keep telling me that the US has working hypersonic missiles, they’re just a secret. How can they be a secret? How can you test missiles in secret? Many people promoting these schizo conspiracies are actually just very stupid, and not even actually schizophrenic at all. Here’s the fact: Russia and China both have more... Read More
The future world order, already in progress, will be formed by strong sovereign states. The ship has sailed. There’s no turning back. Let’s cut to the chase and roll in the Putin Top Ten of the New Era, announced by the Russian President live at the St. Petersburg forum for both the Global North and... Read More
