Endless War in an Economic Collapse?

open thread.jpg

It is pretty stupid state of affairs driven by American aggression...trying to bully the world into submission. Russia and China want to develop a fair world order which they discussed at this weeks BRIC's conference in order to evade the dominance of the USD and create a cooperative, mutually beneficial world trade framework. That is the very thing the US wants to prevent. No, the US will be top dog and we'll commit suicide and even destroy the world in order to maintain our fading global hegemony. The current state of affairs makes it plain the US is incompetent, inefficient, and consumed by greed for ever more profit.

The problem with anti-imperialists who spend all their time criticizing the evil US empire is that there aren’t nearly enough of them...
Hey I’ve got a great idea, let’s start World War Three over a NATO country that most Americans don’t even know exists. Liberals learned the word “Lithuania” ten seconds ago and they’re ready to nuke Moscow over it.

Caitlin Johnstone

The economic collapse, driven by endless currency creation and the boomerang economic sanctions, is upon us. All as we push for global conflict to maintain what I see as a dead hegemony. The empire has fallen but the emperors do not realize they're naked.

Economic Collapse is Unavoidable

So the US mission has failed. What is the alternative. How about a "fair world order?"
Michael Hudson explains in two hour long lectures

Michael Hudson, perhaps to the world’s most influential (but rarely acknowledged) economist. Michael has had a remarkable career starting off as a practical or reality-based economist working for a variety of institutions looking and how banks really behave.

part one

part two

If you just have time for one lecture, part 2 is the best IMO.

The pandemic was not the "great equalizer" that some predicted. Now, after two years of struggle, everyday people are again struggling, this time due to inflation. And when some, including the chair of the Federal Reserve, say the answer to that is lowering wages, you know we need to drastically change this corrupt system.

TPTB are not happy that US policy has forced China and Russia closer together.

The head of US Indo-Pacific Command (INDOPACOM) on Friday sounded the alarm on China and Russia’s growing cooperation, calling it “extremely dangerous” and accused Beijing of “the largest military buildup” since World War II....
China has been identified by the Pentagon as the top “threat” facing the US military and is used to justify massive military spending. The US is planning a military buildup in the Asia Pacific with a focus on alliance-building, meaning China could face a similar situation as Russia has with NATO expansion in Eastern Europe.

The war in Ukraine isn't going well for the US, unless the goal is simply to sell a shitload more weapons.

Despite what some “defense analysts” may be telling Western media, the longer the war continues, the more Ukrainians will die and the weaker NATO will become...
In short, Russia was winning...
For the past 100-plus days, Russia has been relentlessly targeting both Ukraine’s artillery pieces and their associated ammunition storage facilities. By June 14, the Russian Ministry of Defense claimed that it had destroyed “521 installation of multiple launch rocket systems” and “1947 field artillery guns and mortars.”

https://consortiumnews.com/2022/06/25/scott-ritter-the-fantasy-of-fanati...

Speaking near the frontline, south of the city of Severodonetsk, company commander Oleksandr said a core of experienced soldiers who had been fighting together since 2018 have been lost.
"My unit was 100% made up of professional soldiers who have a lot of experience. Now, 80% are incapacitated from serious injuries or death," he says.
In comments which will alarm those backing Ukraine in its four-month long war with Russia, he says he does not know how long his unit can sustain such losses.

But western media just keeps spinning bullshit to keep it going...

So what is the real reason to keep sending arms and promoting war? Hint: it ain't about Ukraine.
The Neocon's Dream - Decolonize Russia, Re-colonize China

What is notable about this panel is the shift from “spreading freedom and democracy” to the need to “decolonize” Russia....
Russia is announcing the next target of its campaign to counter 'western' misbehavior - the reserve status of the U.S. dollar and the Euro:
MOSCOW, June 22. /TASS/. The issue of creating an international reserve currency based on currencies of BRICS member-states is under consideration, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday in the welcome address to BRICS Business Forum participants. "The matter of creating the international reserve currency based on the basket of currencies of our countries is under review," the Russian leader said.
...
When Russia attacked Ukraine and the West imposed sanctions against Moscow, Washington threatened China that any move on its part to help Russia circumvent the sanctions would trigger severe punishment. Now the wheel has come full circle and the US needs China’s helping hand to salvage its economy. This is Thucydides Trap turned upside down — an emerging power rescuing an entrenched great power, whose extravagance pauperised it.

I doubt that. Tariffs or no tariffs China will not help the U.S. in anything. It knows that the U.S-Russian proxy war is about much more than Ukraine. The current U.S. aim may well be to decolonize Russia, but its real geopolitical aim is a re-colonization of China.

Of course the US really is trying to promote this war...
Western Officials Admit Ukraine Is Crawling With CIA Personnel

The revelation that the CIA and US special forces are conducting military operations in Ukraine does indeed make a lie of the Biden administration’s insistence at the start of the war that there would be no American boots on the ground in Ukraine, and the admission that NATO powers are so involved in operations against a nuclear superpower means we are closer to seeing a nuclear exchange than anyone should be comfortable with.
This news should surprise no one who knows anything about the usual behavior of the US intelligence cartel, but interestingly it contradicts something we were told by the same New York Times not three weeks ago...
And now here in June we’ve got war hawks like Max Boot coming right out and saying that this is actually America’s war, and it is therefore important for the US to drastically escalate the war in order to hand the Russians “devastating losses”.

Is Russia fighting to create a new world order?

With the conflict in Ukraine prolonged, we see an even clearer ridge between the West and the non-West. When NATO claims that Putin will burn the whole world, the non-Western countries are almost unanimously not in favor of sanctions against Russia. What do they believe a triumphant Russia will bring to this world, if Putin is going to burn it down? Professor Zhang Weiwei, Professor Aleksandr Dugin, and Professor Ejaz Akram discussed the future of a world without being dominated by any hegemony.

Sounds like a better world to me.

Did you hear any of the talks from the BRICs meeting this week? The theme was cooperation and mutual respect. Some might call it rhetoric, but I wish we heard rhetoric like this in the US. All we got is Putin Bad, Russia Bad. (2.5 min)

Contrast those thoughts with our Monroe Doctrine approach to relations with Latin American countries. Ecuador is a compelling story. (17.5 min)

We continue the attempted colonization of Venezuela...

Unfortunately, the Biden administration’s attachment to Guaidó remains weirdly strong. The president’s wife posted a photo with Guaidó’s wife this week and refers to her as the First Lady of Venezuela. This is just the latest sign that U.S. Venezuela policy remains on Trump-era autopilot. I suppose it is fitting that our farcical fantasy Venezuela policy should remain tied to the fantasy that Guaidó is president, since they both lack any connection to the real world.

The US warmonger economy has failed, and it failed a long time ago. (28 min)

Six hundred and twenty thousand civilians died in the Vietnam War, yet they have never received justice… Iraq was invaded, accused of developing weapons of mass destruction, yet this has been shown to be a lie. And for 20 years Afghanistan was a battleground in the war on terror, yet ultimately the Taliban regained power. Lies, self-interest and profit have created a vast web of international conflict, devastating the lands and peoples caught in it. And the responsibility rests with one country alone. The documentary "The Warmonger's Legacy" reveals the shocking truth.

The US war of terror has resulted in 6 million deaths. Lee Camp explains.

I don't enjoy seeing my own country as the world's primary perpetrator of war, but realistically I must. I see the Russia and China model of a fair new world as a better path, and wish we would join the effort rather than hamper it with endless conflict. I can imagine a belt and road program in North America for example. The theory has been if the economy is in trouble, start a war. This time it has backfired and we sit on the verge of a second great depression in the west as the rest of the world paves the way toward a more sane cooperative society. I wish them the best. I wish us all the best as the challenges become real for us all over the next years.

It is a crying shame the US masses have been buffaloed into believing that we, as a nation,
represent 'freedom and democracy' in the govt/corp/mil foreign policies arena.

Almost the opposite is closer to the truth. 'freedom' means ignoring world-wide laws, and
'democracy' is a white-washed term meaning empire control.

Like you, I believe in the co-operative agenda put forward by the BRICS initiative. This may be
our only salvation. The hollowing out of our society for the benefit of the warmongers must be
reversed somehow. That is a tough one to contemplate. Applying the brakes would be a good
first step.

Thanks for the essay. These issues are not hard to comprehend. Only wish more people

The gathering I went to yesterday doesn't bode well for US self awareness. It was an annual party held for the first time since the pandemic. It is at a land coop with primarily open minded liberal people. Sadly that term, liberal, has lost its meaning. Heard lots of BS about Russian aggression and plenty of anti-Trump rhetoric too. No real self reflection on US policy nor actions. All they got is Putin bad, Trump bad. It has been effectively programed into the national psyche. Plenty of misunderstanding of COVID was evident as well. Seems we've become a nation of sheeple controlled by the media mongols to do the bidding of TPTB.

Glad I've got the holler to hide in when I see friends buy the propaganda. It isn't really their fault when the messaging is AI driven 24/7/365 until everyone now thinks white is really black. Better to listen to nature instead of people these days...

Seems we've become a nation of sheeple controlled by the media mongols to do the bidding of TPTB.

For decades or longer people have been able to resist the brainwashing from the government and media, but somehow during Trump their minds broke down and they no longer see that they have been lied to daily about so many issues. People who protested during Vietnam and saw through Saddam having WMDs started believing everything they heard about Trump and Russia Russia and then fell for the Rona psyop. Why? What changed in their brains and why do only a few still see through it? People who once KNEW that the media lied to them daily all of a sudden started trusting them to be telling them the truth? Even when people found out that their government was employing people who know how to manipulate their thinking are still believing everything that their government is telling them.

It goes beyond Trump bad and Biden is riding a white horse when Biden has spent his entire career screwing the working class and Trump did nothing to drain the swamp. People have watched as both parties have betrayed them for decades, but still think that if their party gets power they win even though both parties have been rescinding their rights every chance they get.

I’m just dumbfounded by how many people have lost their critical thinking skills and think that their government is doing things to help them. There’s plenty of news that show that it’s a lie.

ran. I would call them Republicans, except that many Dinos got away with doing unreasonable shit (Joe Lieberman and others) too.

Now the political winds have changed and it is the Democrats that can pull all kinds of shady shit and pay no price for it (Yet, anyway. We'll know more after the 2022 midterms.)

I believe the actual bosses shifted their eggs from the Republican basket to the Democrat basket starting in 2016. Trump REALLY...WAS...NOT...SUPPOSED...TO...WIN. It's why every talking head from Thom Hartman and Amy Goodman to all ABCNNBBCBS anchors lost their f'ing minds. Their private election script burst into flames. And all of the secret deals and back scratching that hinged on Hillary being in the White House fell apart.

The extreme and shameless cheating in 2020, first to screw Bernie in the Primary, then Trump in the General was all unleashed because they were not going to underestimate the little-shit voters again.

For whatever reason TPTB decided that the Democrats would be more effective doing their bidding now, and in many ways (not all) the two parties have reversed roles.

The other important thing to mention is that the neoliberals have been buying and co-opting alternative lefty media and slowly shifting their message away from stories holding corrupt elites accountable and toward meaningless vapid pearl clutching and faux outrage.

Thanks for the info, Lookout!

In the same vein, I sent the following email to a couple of friends yesterday who are probably thinking in line with the MSM rhetoric, feeling that these observations might not be offensive.

**************************

Going beyond the tragedy of war - which it is of course. Reading and watching videos from all over the world, I am seeing some good coming from all of it. The collective "West" (the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand) is only 15% of the world's population. The rest of the world is 85%. While all this is going on, they are busy meeting together and signing agreements for trade, cooperation, and support. One of the most significant things is that they are creating an alternative world trade currency, meaning they will no longer trade on the dollar. BRICS leaders just met a couple of days ago and signed an agreement https://www.mea.gov.in/bilateral-documents.htm?dtl/35435/XIV+BRICS+Summi...

What does this mean for us? You will probably agree with me on this one. Our government needs a reset badly. Most politicians take bribes. It is horribly corrupt. Republican policy is so terrible, but sadly the dems aren't doing anything about it. Most of them are taking cues from their owners too. Ugh. We need a miracle.

You might like this interview "Peace is the result of diplomacy, never of war."

@Columbia University’s renowned economist Jeffrey Sachs talks about the lessons he has learned from consulting with governments around the world, about how global problems, such as the war in Ukraine, will only be solved via efforts to understand the other side, never through force. https://youtu.be/9d4D2EKGfv4

Also, below are links to a four-part video series I have been watching. Haven't seen the last video yet, but in the third one, Eckhart says that we in the West are about to enter a period of collective turmoil. You probably feel this too. Gas prices at the pump, and more significantly for my family, electricity prices. Our electric bill was $200 more last month than in April and March with about the same usage. Now this month it is HOT, so the air conditioners are running everywhere. I'll get the bill on Friday. I already budget $350/month for electricity so last month it was $550. Yikes!

We're not alone, everyone is experiencing inflation and this is just the start.

What do we do? Personally, I guess just cope and adjust . . . be grateful for what we have and the goodness all around us. Lots of folks will have a hard time doing that though.

I hope the other 85% of the world can save us.

@mhagle Our bills remained the same, no rolling blackouts. What I figure is coming is a ban on outdoor watering. We are starting to water every other day. They will allot some strange time of day, like 5 am until 8 am during weekdays, when everyone is getting ready to head to work.
This typically doesn't occur until late July and August. This is a very hot summer that started very early.
We did a walk around with an electrician and a solar system to get us off grid would have been a $53,000 project. No way I will live long enough to break even.
My electric bill for my home from mid-May to mid-June was $108, and $54 at the office. That is the result of installing a heat pump. My former costs for both would have been $600, more or less.

Possibly good news for much or even most of the world IF we avoid WWIII. Sadly, that's because of the bad news and impending disaster for the US/NATO/EU and monopolar fascist hegemony. Just getting started on the vids, however, but Dreizin sure laid out a scary scenario, though I don't agree that the Petro boys took any threat of a green new deal and transition away from petro from the Dems seriously, there are other games being played here, but the effects are the same. Have to go get some stuff done for a bit here, but the BRICS summit sure sounds like the move of the BRICS to get out from under the dollar is still going strong and will eventually prevail to their benefit and our detriment.

....week after week, and that has been an extravagant gift to the people in this community. You have the ideal perch from which to watch what may be a terminal global event — and what is certainly going to be a profound change of consciousness for the White master race and their vassal states.

(I choose to analyze these larger trends from a racial point-of-view, because it is the simplest way to grasp the past 500 years. It is also the best way to understand and adapt to the coming global power shift to the Global South, which will dominate the next 500 years. But beyond racial exhaustion, there are other epic forces that are pushing this transformation, including massive environmental change. There could even be potential for the emergence of a messiah figure. This sort of thing repeats.)

The rise of the global South will mark the first time a convergence of global influence will come from indigenous people standing on the bones of their distant ancestors. A hopeful thought.

I'm going to re-read this week's sweeping visual analysis and watch ALL the video's you have gathered. Your conclusion was indeed a true gift:

I don't enjoy seeing my own country as the world's primary perpetrator of war, but realistically I must. I see the Russia and China model of a fair new world as a better path, and wish we would join the effort rather than hamper it with endless conflict.

Here' you've captured the moment. A frozen snapshot of the flux of swirling truths.

The one turbulent discord is that the United States doesn't know that it is dead yet. We were warned by history that this is what happens to some dying empires. They thrash. However, all the nations surrounding us are watching the US carefully, humoring its imperious demands, not trying to engage directly, avoiding confrontation. They are not mocking and are not arguing. When called upon, they interact respectfully. This includes China and Russia.

The problem for them is that the US does not have a competent Head of State. The President is a befuddled old man whose limited influence peaked a very long time ago. The US has no central mind. It has a seething core of ideologues and psychopaths. It has an old useless constitution (a solid truth made clear this week) and no moral compass. The nation's powers have been privatized and sold to corporations. Hopefully the highest commanders in the military are secretly sane, and they are aware that there is no Commander in Chief. If they are sane, then they know their duty is to the people and not to the rogue kamikaze government that is moving Joe's lips.

The US and its brainwashed people, unfortunately, have done so much damage in the world, that they really cannot be part of a multipolar global governing body. They have centuries of restitution to pay, and an educational system to clean up so they can produce better citizens.

@Lookout

I've been an avid watcher since 2013. The speeches this year were very coordinated. Over the years, their ideas have gelled into a vision for the future. I was thinking of the BRICS when I mentioned the Global South. I think that association has changed those countries involved. They now show a higher awareness of their place in the coming world. They, of course, are all key players in the Belt and Road Initiative, which is an all-empowering global event. The entire concept of infrastructure is taking off, too. People everywhere are starting to understand that infrastructure is a living extension of themselves. By becoming part of the infrastructure, individuals and societies can more easily harness their dreams and aspirations.

Thirty years ago, a small melon farmer in China might never travel more that 20 miles from his home and would spend his life in poverty. His children would move away because the farm could not provide for them. Today that same farmer has customers for his exclusive brand of melon in every corner of China, and he might have his own weekly television show where he visits the farmer markets throughout his province and samples the produce being harvested. This is a surprisingly common story in China, where infrastructure development was the key to 100 percent poverty eradication. The farmer's children stay home now and start small businesses that turn farm villages into tourist destinations. (Farm tourism is a popular pastime in China.)

The BRI, of course, is the macrocosmic version of China's own infrastructure build. The BRI involves many trillions of dollars in investment. It is supported by 140 nations, who are also the founding members of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), which easily rivals the World Bank. The US refused to join and the State Department has been smearing the project ever since.

So, I got a laugh today when I saw this headline. The punchlines in the article write themselves:

WASHINGTON, June 26 (Reuters) - The United States aims to raise $200 billion in private and public funds over five years to fund needed infrastructure in developing countries under a G7 initiative aimed at countering China's multitrillion-dollar Belt and Road project, the White House said on Sunday.

Increasingly worried about China, G7 leaders first floated plans for the project last year, and are formally launching it now under a fresh title, "Partnership for Global Infrastructure and Investment" while dropping the moniker "Build Back Better World" first coined by Biden during his presidential campaign.

Biden will unveil several specific projects at a G7 side event, joined by leaders from Britain, Germany, Japan, the European Union and Canada, vowing to focus on projects that help tackle climate change as well as improve global health, gender equity and digital infrastructure. Notably absent will be French President Emmanual Macron who had formally joined the Chinese infrastructure program.

"The president's not thinking that we need to spend dollar for dollar versus China ... though if you add up what the U.S. and the G7 partners are going to be announcing, it comes pretty close to the number," one senior U.S. official told reporters.

The funds would be raised through grants and federal funds, and by leveraging private-sector investments, the White House said, adding that hundreds of billions of additional dollars could come from multilateral development banks, development finance institutions, sovereign wealth funds and others.

China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) scheme, which Chinese President Xi Jinping launched in 2013, involves development and investment initiatives in over 100 countries, with a range of projects including railways, ports and highways.

White House officials say Xi's plan to create a modern version of the ancient Silk Road trade route has provided little tangible benefit for many developing countries, with top jobs going to Chinese workers, while increasing rates of forced and child labor.

Biden will highlight several flagship projects, including a $2 billion solar development project in Angola with support from the Commerce Department, the U.S. Export-Import Bank, U.S. firm AfricaGlobal Schaffer, and U.S. project developer Sun Africa.

Together with G7 members and the EU, Washington will also provide $3.3 million in technical assistance to Institut Pasteur de Dakar in Senegal as it develops an industrial-scale flexible multi-vaccine manufacturing facility in that country that can eventually produce COVID-19 and other vaccines.

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) will also commit up to $50 million over five years to the World Bank’s new global Childcare Incentive Fund, a project aimed at address the gap in suitable childcare infrastructure.

.
This is not going to happen. There is no state money to fund it, and institutional investors are looking for big profits, not big investments. The the Vassal States are pretending and flashing fake smiles for the press at the G-7, which opened today in Germany.

Makes sense to build infrastructure in countries across the pond whilst letting our infrastructure either rot or be privatized so some company can suck even more money out of clueless sods.

It took congress a week to transfer billions to the corporations and rich people at the beginning of Covid, but over a year for them to decide how much to give us. Ukraine gets billions at the drop of a hat and democrats are finally going to touch the 3rd rails of social security and Medicare. If they lose both houses and republicans do it then of course Biden will sign it.

We’ve watched them do this for decades and still people think that we can vote our way out of this corruption. Go figure.

More importantly, you already know there is no way to change the outcome, certainly not through political means. And you know that your fellow citizens will comply quietly. Soon, the noisy people will be methodically removed. People will stop talking. Just as those without healthcare have been quietly removed, for years

I've been watching the housing crisis. It is not going to be addressed. Either homeowners will solve the problem by doubling up and taking in the homeless, or those without homes and friends will be quietly removed.

We will be without water out West much sooner than anyone expects. People will walk away from their homes, because they cannot be sold. The water will not come back. Banks will bail out the corporations and they will leave, along with the jobs.

There's no will in the US to fix any of this. I saw how a million people died from the pandemic, and some scientists say a million more will join them by the end of the year. In the US, no one tried to stop the infection, no one tried to treat it, there was not enough protective wear, people couldn't buy it. There were never enough tests. There was no public health education, there was no discussion of dangerous deficiencies in vital nutrients like vitamin D that we knew was wiping out African Americans.

China is just the opposite. They are holding back the virus from entering China while their scientists are scrambling to find a cure. China produces a dozen different vaccines, but vaccines do not reliably prevent coronavirus infections. China's Covid-19 research mandate is very active and very deep. They don't want citizens becoming infected because they know the virus damages the organs, which results in life-long health problems and early death. They don't want to deal with a sick population for the next 80 years.

The US is not a safe place. People are not getting enough food right now. People can't afford the gas to go find affordable food they need.

I've been watching people scrambling to get out of the US. They dropped the flight restrictions just in time. Leaving the US has never been easier. Thousands are crossing the border into Mexico and traveling further from there. Mexican officials want to see a guaranteed income of $3000 a month and $200,000 in the bank before they will issue an extended visa. Most nations south of here have similar restrictions.Many American families are now in Mexico illegally trying to figure out a way to stay there. Canadians, too. They have come up with some impressive money-making schemes. I follow dozens of expat message boards on Facebook. US Retirees are leaving at an astonishing rate and are spreading out across Central and South America. They are priced out of the US retirement market and really can't come back. They are some of the happiest people on the Internet. They claim that leaving saved their lives. Some say it's the food.

Most of them still don't have a clue about US politics. They are not running away from the US. They are running toward paradise.

...to see why I find the US proposing to build their own "infrastructure" solution for the world.

First of all, the world already knows what happens when the World Bank helps the US perform infrastructure projects in developing nations. The developing countries go bankrupt and lose all their valuable natural resources. Years of unrest and puppet dictators follow. The people become even more destitute.

So, I'm laughing at the wide-eyed reaction of the African people, for example. They are surprisingly sophisticated when it comes to geopolitics. It's horrifying for the 'realists' when the US comes calling. The only way the US gets a foot in the door is by overthrowing the government and installing a Nazi puppet. Countries in Central and South America are equally horrified by the thought of infrastructure help from the US.

They're willing to buy weapons, but that's about it.

"whatever that means". But the reason is simply that the left has been 99.99% co-opted by neoliberal warmongering corporatists. And what I hear when I accidentally come across them is gas-lighting bullshit artists parroting from a script. I still don't listen to extreme right nut-bags. But if Tucker Carlson has Jimmy Dore or Glenn Greenwald on his show then Kudos to him.

There's a lot more to be said on the subject, but basically I don't like being lied to. And there are very few lefties with a microphone who haven't been co-opted. I still listen to Jimmy Dore, of course. He kicks liars and hypocrites asses, whether they are on the left or right.

multinational corporations have taken over nations as the world's power brokers.
https://theconversation.com/who-is-more-powerful-states-or-corporations-...
Screenshot 2022-06-26 at 13-47-46 Who is more powerful – states or corporations.png

State power did not disappear with globalisation, but it transformed. It now competes with corporations for influence and political power. States use corporations and vice versa, as the following two examples illustrate: offshore finance and transnational state-owned enterprises.

To start with offshore finance, global corporations use different jurisdictions to avoid being taxed or regulated in their home country. Lost taxes due to profit shifting could be as high as US$500 billion globally. When states position themselves as tax havens, they undermine the ability of “onshore” states to tax corporations and wealthy individuals – a cornerstone of state power.

Besides tax havens, numerous EU governments have become notorious for offering “sweetheart deals” that reduce the tax burden for specific multinationals to an astonishing extent. Also, our CORPNET research group at the University of Amsterdam recently identified five countries who play an important additional role in facilitating tax avoidance: the UK, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Ireland and Singapore. Each enables multinationals to shift investments at minimum cost between tax havens and onshore states.

Face-centered cubic, monoclinic, triclinic, orthorhombic … streak plates … hardness scale from soapstone to carborundum (well, actually, diamond, but this predated synthetic diamonds so no one could afford the full scale). Granite = quartz + feldspar.

So disappointed when I realized none o’ this fun stuff existed in Hawai‘i because volcanic origin = everything’s igneous. Basalt, basalt, and did I mention basalt? Things are tuff all over, conehead.

Once free of England, we were an oligarchy ab initio, primarily of a plutocratic bent.

Meanwhile the elites continued to rig the game and stack the deck further and further.

@enhydra lutris ...and I read Howard Zinn's People's History as a freshman in high school; not college, high school.

"The Right" is correct that there is nothing good about reflexive 'anti-jingoism' (remember that maltheism is still a form of worship).

The fact that one of those sides has won more often than it has lost does not nullify the existence of the other side, and only serves to assist the former in burying the latter - also, it is important to separate the worlds of faces, minds, matter, motion, and ideas and be able to view all their motions in tandem.

That's one of the problems with history education: Too much religion, not enough metaphysics.

As I've said before, MY America effectively began only in the 20th Century, sometime between the influx of immigrants from Asia and Mediterranean/Eastern Europe in the 1910s to the election of FDR in 1932. It is these fresh faces who managed to create an America that those who were already here had already given up on - but these naive immigrants did something remarkable: They took the American Dream, and made it a REALITY - their efforts did not fail, they were sabotaged by the sore losers with the assistance of ALL those who wouldn't/couldn't get over their 19th-Century soap-operas.

They have been begging the US to drop hundreds of crippling tariffs and those sanctions that harm the people, which were levied under the Trump administration. Biden's Neocon minders won't allow it and Biden is an old fool. China is not the payer of the tariffs.

China points out that the US is impoverishing its own middle classes since lower and middle class Americans are the ones paying most of the tariffs. The Biden administration cynically calls it "inflation," and blames it on Russia. That's why the Federal Reserve cannot "control" this inflation. Their interest rate hike can do nothing — except further harms the lower and middle classes by charging them higher interest on the money they must borrow each month to pay for the sanctions on their necessities.

China recognizes that it has a responsiblity to keep the world's supply chains open, no matter the costs to them. They will not stop selling and shipping the things that people need.

...of other nations, they have stated that all people on earth can enjoy moderate prosperity within the current world economy. It simply a matter of infrastructure, access, and organization. This will become apparent in countries adjacent to the Belt and Road buildout. I imagine it will be very striking in Africa and South America. But the home nations must also govern wisely. Once prosperity begins to spread, then China can withdraw from the world, go home, close the gates, and live in peace. China will have what it wants: prosperous customers. It really is that simple for them. They don't want to govern over strangers and they don't want anybody else's stuff.

I didn't spend the $200+ dollars for the dinner in the evening preceding the event. I should have.

I asked the final question to Pierre Kory "How can someone get ivermectin?" He mentioned compounding pharmacies and buying it from India. My dermatologist gave me a prescription for 40 3 mg tablets and 100 tablets of HCQ at 100 mg. A second prescription of IVM has never appeared. A woman came up and said that one can get it from India. I sent away and got 200 12mg tablets and now am ready.

They are trying not to kill civilians and destroy infrastructure like we do whenever we invade countries on false pretenses. Russia is acting in self defense, but you’ve been told that too. Maybe you can look back at the comments after you posted this question and see what they explained to you. Or keep believing whatever propaganda you have been reading and keep asking this question.

I'm Dr. Claire Craig. I'm a diagnostic pathologist and I am co-chair at The Hart Group. And I want to take you through the evidence that Pfizer just presented to the FDA on the 6 months to 4-year-old children. There's an awful lot about this trial that has shocked me, and I think will shock you too.

The trial recruited 4,526 children aged from six months to four years old. 3,000 of these children did not make it to the end of the trial. That is a huge number. Two-thirds of them. Why was there this drop off? That needs to be answered. And without an answer to that, on that basis alone, this trial should be deemed null and void.

Once again Pfizer unblinded the control group and gave them a jab making the trial basically useless.
Fortunately more parents have adopted a wait and see attitude before getting their kids jabbed.

But from the article I linked above it’s not going to be too much longer until people start waking up to see what has been done to them. And then hopefully the sh*t hits the fan and we start holding people accountable for their actions.
