Tillerson was warmly received in Beijing by Wang Yi, Yang Jiechi and Xi Jingping. The time and place for an imminent summit meeting between Trump and Xi have yet to be confirmed and announced. Instead, Tillerson is saying Trump would look forward to meeting Xi in China, and Xi is saying Mr Trump would be […]
Mainstream Press on Wikileaks’ Vault 7: “Nothing to See Here.” Meanwhile, Big Data Leveraged to Create Deep State AI God
The formation of a Deep State-controlled digital surveillance God would be the ultimate, most apocalyptic form of dictatorship. And with ubiquitous digital devices, data-gathering services, and the Internet of Things collecting seemingly mundane information 24/7, we’re opting in to deliver the raw material needed to create it.
With WikiLeaks unnleashing the long-awaited and mysterious “Vault 7” this morning, sleuths both amateur and professional across the globe have begun to dive in and sift through its contents. The Vault 7 release is allegedly the largest trove of documents on CIA activities ever leaked, and focuses on the CIA’s global hacking division, revealing a sort of second NSA within the CIA itself.
War has raged worldwide since long before you were born. Recession has caused record levels of homelessness in city streets, and every day, more Americans come one small financial setback away from joining their ranks. Already, economists, bankers, politicians, and academics have begun pushing for a cashless society in order to monitor all spending and […]
None of you is old enough to remember the Watergate affair of 1972-1974. The abrupt resignation of Michael Flynn, Donald Trump’s national security advisor, reminds me of the beginning of the fall of Richard Nixon. With respect to the current affair that may become known perhaps as Moscowgate, Flynn was thrust into the front line […]
“[Trump is a] blunt instrument for us,” Bannon told me. “I really don’t know whether he really gets it or not.” -From Vanity Fair (August, 2016), courtesy of Truthstream Media Who is Steve Bannon? He is a frustrated, angry White male who studies Sun Tzu’s Art Of War in order to plot a comeback. Or […]
Here’s a letter you can personalize, modify, and email to your senators and congressional representatives. It identifies the nefarious global war on cash, and strongly urges them to fight against it. While it often feels futile to send messages like this to politicians who are overwhelmingly bought and paid for by corporations and special interest […]
Trump Protesters Conspicuously Late to the Game: Where Was the Outrage When the Stage Was Being Set?
With protests against Trump actions seemingly only exploding with greater force since his election, there is a critical question that is seldom being asked. Even for one who acknowledges that there is plenty to be protesting against, you have to wonder: Where were the protests in December of 2015 when Obama signed the Consolidated Appropriations […]
Knowing that British Intelligence knows “things” that the British Government would like Donald Trump to know they knew, Theresa May hurriedly went to Washington to “hold his hands” immediately after his inauguration. Physically as well as figuratively, certain matters of state must be conducted P-to-P (person to person). When it comes to transmitting highly sensitive […]
Attached is a draft summary of my working paper on A Roadmap For US-China Relations. Matters On Hold At the moment, given the instability in US domestic politics, I believe that China is unlikely to rush into any major initiative with the new American administration. It will spend some time observing. There will be contacts […]
Xi And I Philosophically and analytically, Xi and I have astonishingly congruent sensibilities. For us to simultaneously make the analogy from Dickens’ A Tale Of Two Cities is coincidental, but not surprising. It reinforces the notion that the world is indeed at a critical crossroad, resonating the aftermath of the Industrial Revolution and the social […]
Xi Jingping delivered his keynote speech at Davos today. He began with a paraphrase from the start of Charles Dickens’ novel, A Tale Of Two Cities: “This is the best of times. This is also the worst of times …” thus he began his keynote address to the annual assembly of the World Economic Forum. […]
Michael Pillsbury, Donald Trump’s supposed go-to man on China, was in Beijing this past weekend. He made a speech in a seminar attended by members of Chinese think-tanks. Referring to his principal’s idea of “making America great again”, Pillsbury said: “If America were to be great again, the road must lead to Beijing.” The Chinese […]
Unprecedented Orders From Pentagon to Fire D.C. National Guard Commander Days Before Trump Inauguration
D.C. National Guard commander Errol R. Schwartz, a Major General, has been asked to step down after months of planning for president-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration — an inauguration day that feels more likely than any in modern American history to break out in violence and/or social disruption. Some protest groups are vowing to disrupt road, […]
Xi Goes To Davos For the first time, China’s president will attend the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting at Davos, Switzerland. He will deliver a key-note speech there on January 17. Davos, as this forum is commonly called, has become one of the world’s most important and exclusive regular gatherings of political and business leaders […]
Are you superstitious? But this can only be inauspicious? When I watched CNN broadcast of the vaudeville that was Donald Trump’s first “press” conference, I could not keep my eyes away from the not-so-little, red-and-white logo in the front of Trump’s podium. It must surely be the No-Go sign, whether in China, or America, or anywhere in the world! Well, when enlarged, […]
Below details out the US-China confrontation in the South China Sea, highlighting the Malacca Strait and bringing into focus the real strategic stakes that are in play. This is a timely piece, as the specific issues and contentions are now shifting into the broader regional as well as global issues. At the start of 2017, […]
One way to understand polycentrism is to draw a parallel with ecosystems. During polycentric times, the key to success is adaptability. In fact, it is the same story as with evolution. Size and overwhelming strength, if not managed and applied appropriately, can be a dangerous liability. It is a lesson we have learnt from the […]
The key to looking at all the current global dynamics is to understand the nature of a polycentric reality in the world’s power configuration. Polycentrism is a little-understood phenomenon in the post-WWII world, although it was not an unusual set of circumstances in other periods of world history. Here, I will not elaborate on the historical […]
