Tom Steyer, Billionaire Democrat Behind Trump Impeachment Campaign, Part of Bizarre Podesta “Walnut Sauce” Email Thread
With billionaire Democrat Tom Steyer back in the news for a campaign to impeach Trump, Pizzagate sleuths are revisiting his strange-toned “walnut sauce” emails from the Podesta email dump on WikiLeaks.
What we are witnessing is Diplomacy working at the highest level. It produces potentially good history for Mankind, rather than bad memories. It Is Cruising It has only been seven months since Xi met with Trump at Mar-a-Lago. The progress on the Roadmap for US-China Relations is very encouraging indeed. In addition to the signing […]
We have no finishing school for our Presidents … To Bow Or Not To Bow Interestingly, Donald Trump chose not to bow to Japan’s Emperor in his recent trip to Japan. Instead, he politely nodded and made friendly eyes-contact as he shook the welcoming Emperor’s hand. In modern Japan, that would be proper behavior for […]
During his upcoming visit to China, Donald Trump can reserve his place in history by initiating formal dialogue on two subjects with his Chinese counterpart. They are (a) currency and monetary cooperation framework, and (b) strategic arms limitation talks. He should bring up these subjects when he goes on the stroll one-on-one with Xi Jingping. […]
The modern media landscape provides a never-ending stream of contradictions, absurdities, and outright distortions, each one further damaging the public trust in traditional news outlets. Most are honest mistakes made by jaded corporate journo-masturbators in the breathless pursuit of ratings and clicks, but media manipulation and idiocy are also sometimes the products of Deep State meddling.
Civil Libertarians Increasingly Complacent as Creeping Tyranny Continues Full-Speed Ahead Under Trump
Aside from Libertarian stalwarts like Ron Paul, and commentary from the likes of Michael Krieger and Zero Hedge, all of whom continue to ring alarm bells, civil libertarians and conservatives seem to have become much quieter under the Trump administration. I suspect a couple of major reasons for this: for one, complacency in their perception […]
If you control food, you control people. If you control oil, you control nations. If you control currency, you control the world. – Henry Kissinger Guarding The Old Order The above is a famous quotation that some believe underlies Kissinger’s geopolitical realism, from the standpoint of the oligarchs of financial capitalism whom he serves. Ownership […]
With major “newspapers of record” like the New York Times and Washington Post facing the very real threat of financial destruction, they’ve more than ever become Deep State vanity presses owned by mega-billionaries like Carlos Slim (NYT) and Jeff Bezos (WaPo).
Worse yet, due to doors opened by the likes of NAFTA and Clinton-era telecommunications reform, nearly all major news media have been consolidated into only six mega-conglomerates. Perhaps, then, the further degradation of an already-troubled field shouldn’t be surprising.
All of a sudden, a military conflict is imminent between India and China. Three weeks ago, out of the blue, Indian troops crossed the Sikkim border and squatted 100 meters inside Chinese territory. They were held there by Chinese border troops. India declared that the 1890 border treaty between China and Sikkim, a formerly independent […]
*** In the Middle East, a friend of a friend can be an enemy, and an enemy of an enemy can also be an enemy. It is like an Opium Den in which every participant accuses others of breaking the law. *** A Powder Keg The showdown over Qatar triggered tension over two ongoing processes […]
What is the Bilderberg “Club”? It is not what you would normally think of as a club. Here is how I would describe it. It is an international group of relatively high-powered technocrats and significant economic and political players assembled to serve the Western capital oligarchs. There is no vested membership, just various mailing and […]
Get your popcorn ready (we all know Putin is) as the world watches President Trump’s first overseas trip and meets with other world leaders. He hopefully doesn’t have an international incident that rattles markets ahead of the 3-day weekend coming up for Memorial Day. On the economic front, we have Durable Goods, University of […]
Handing In Homework The first group of items agreed between the US and China on trade and economic matters were announced a few days ago. As part of the results under the 100-day pledge at the Xi-Trump summit on April 6 – 7, some of these items dramatically demonstrate the benefits of win-win cooperation. There […]
Re-ignited Cold War At this point, as a result of the sequence of events in the past few years and other bizarre reasons, the US and Russia have re-ignited a Cold War. One of the characteristics of a Cold War is tic-for-tac actions, dirty tricks, and doing things that would foil or complicate matters for […]
Rapid Changes In The World It is hard to believe that Xi Jingping and Donald Trump met as recently as April 6-7. The world has changed so much in the last couple of weeks that few could recognize it from what it was the week before the Xi-Trump meeting. Instead of a warming of US […]
One Belt One Road （“OBOR”） is the designation of China’s initiative in its foreign relations. It embodies China’s vision that peace in the world is best achieved through cooperative development, economic, social and cultural. Along the various routes that had represented the historical Silk Roads on land （the Belt）and the Maritime Route by sea（the Road）, […]
Ivanka Trump’s daughter, Arabella sang a song, recited the 3-character primer, and a Tang Dynasty poem in Chinese for President Xi Jingping and Madame Peng Liyuan. It is going viral in China. Forty-five years ago, an historic breakthrough in US-China relations was achieved through the Nixon visit to Beijing. It was dubbed the “Pingpong” diplomacy. […]
This is what I understand to be the possible elements of a script anticipated on the Chinese side of the Xi-Trump summit. 1. Trump would kick off by asking for the sky from China. Xi and his entourage would remain silent, but flash broad congenial smiles at their host, saying without saying, “You are joking. […]
This Thursday, Xi Jingping and Donald Trump will meet for the first time. Usually, meetings between US and Chinese heads-of-state require a long period of time to prepare. This will probably go down in history as one that takes place under rather bizarre circumstances, but it may end up being quite significant. Bizarre Circumstances （1） […]
This past quarter in the markets was one of the more interesting three-month periods we’ve had in a while. Not because of what took place, but rather, the lack of what took place, considering the boiling global geopolitical climate. Almost all of Q1 unfolded against a backdrop of zero volatility and confounding complacency not seen […]
