China’s Secret Plans “That Could Spark World war Three”

Please note: While the information in this article is relevant and noteworthy (otherwise we wouldn’t publish it), some discernment is required: Note that this is essentially an MSM promo for a new book. The Chinese Invasion Threat does appear to a potentially informative read though.

China has drawn up secret plans to invade Taiwan with a Normandy-style beach landing by the mid-2020s, sparking a possible region-wide conflict that would likely draw in Australia, a new book claims.
The Chinese Invasion Threat, which has received praise from respected defence and diplomatic figures in Washington, uses leaked Chinese military documents to compile in discomforting detail the invasion plans, which have never before been publicly assessed.
While North Korea is the acute crisis sharpening leaders’ minds around the world, the book argues China’s designs on Taiwan ultimately pose a graver threat because they could bring great powers – the US and China – into conflict for the first time since 1945.
The US would likely come to Taiwan’s aid in the event of an invasion and that could draw Australia in through the ANZUS alliance.
Author Ian Easton, of the Asia policy think tank Project 2049 Institute, concludes that China is held back currently by the likely massive loss of lives, resources and international prestige if it attempted an invasion but says “preparations will continue apace and the situation could quickly change”.
Citing People’s Liberation Army (PLA) internal writings, he writes that democratic Taiwan is seen by the Chinese Communist Party as “its most dangerous external national security threat” because its very existence challenges the authoritarian party.
Taiwan has been the subject of reunification ambitions by the mainland since it was founded by the exiled former Chinese leader Chiang Kai-shek in 1949.
“We must annihilate our [Taiwanese] enemies in large numbers, then conquer and control the entire island,” Mr Easton cites one PLA field manual as saying.
Conquering Taiwan is the PLA’s “historic mission” and “its principal war planning scenario”, he writes.
As well as national honour, China is also motivated by strategy: as an “unsinkable aircraft carrier”, Taiwan would give China clear access to the western Pacific.
The Project 2049 Institute takes a hawkish view on China. But Mr Easton’s book has earned praise from all sides, including former Bush administration deputy secretary of state Richard Armitage and former Obama administration assistant secretary for east Asia Kurt Campbell.
The book lays out China’s invasion plans in unflinching detail. The PLA would rely on speed, taking Taiwan before the US has time to intervene.
It would start with a naval blockade while also “softening up” the island through missile and air strikes, aiming for a “decapitation” that kills the Taiwanese president and other leaders.
Then it would send an armada of ships to stage beach landings in two waves that would ultimately land as many as 1 million Chinese soldiers.
The book also lays out Taiwan’s formidable defences, painting a picture of an island nation whose awareness of its existential vulnerability is woven into its DNA. Taiwan would pull out every stop and involve all citizens down to high school children, Mr Easton writes.
Drawing on Taiwanese military documents, Mr Easton writes that the country’s president, the cabinet and parliamentary leaders would be “moved to deep underground vaults, sealed into a system of secret command complexes that are capable of housing thousands of essential personnel under the earth’s surface”. They would move around via an extensive underground tunnel system believed to lie under the capital Taipei.
Taiwan could mobilise as many as 300,000 reservists within 24 hours and 2 million within 72 hours. Taiwanese intelligence would likely get at least one month’s clear notice because of the scale of Chinese troop movements needed.
The western beaches would host phalanxes of weapons from sea mines down to bamboo spikes and “sea walls of fire” that use underwater pipelines to pump flammable liquids into the shallows and scorch the amphibious landings.
“Chinese military writings depict the envisioned fortification systems as something ugly and medieval,” Mr Easton writes.
To survive the initial air and missile bombardment, Taiwan would hide many of its most advanced fighters jets in hardened mountain bunkers that would be brought out after the first wave. Major motorways can be turned quickly into airstrips – as regularly practised by the air force. Those fighters would then be unleashed on the Chinese naval invaders.
Taiwan could also mount missile and air counterstrikes against the Chinese mainland to persuade Beijing to back down.
Mr Easton acknowledges that China has good reasons not to follow through on its plan because of the high costs. Military planning does not equal intent.
The former defence minister, Labor leader and ambassador to Washington Kim Beazley told Fairfax Media that all countries plan militarily for all sorts of situations.
Once US forces were attacked, Australia would be obliged under ANZUS to consult with Washington, though it does not have to commit forces. Beyond that, Mr Beazley and other experts said, it would depend on the politics of the situation.
Australia could most immediately offer submarines and possibly fighter aircraft.
Mr Easton writes that “respect for international law and shared values would probably draw the United States, Japan, Australia and other democracies to Taiwan’s side”.
He concludes that to deter China, the US needs to more strongly and overtly support Taiwan, including by incrementally deepening its diplomatic relations, even if not immediately recognising Taiwan as an independent nation, and more regular arms sales.
The US President should meet in person with his Taiwanese counterpart and Taiwan should be invited to take part in international military exercises.
China, he writes, would be unlikely to invade unless it was certain the US could be deterred or at least significantly delayed from coming to Taiwan’s rescue.

The UK: “Extricating Itself From The EU Pig Trough” by G Squared

UK EUThe UK needs to protect and care for its own people. It has taken the first step, by extricating itself from The EU Pig Trough and Cesspit. The second stage is to evict and deny all blackmails: American.
Polaris was an idiocy, and financial devastation visited on The UK. Neither Russia nor China have ever had inclinations to nuke The UK. Did they ever attempt? Where they deterred?  What has The UK got that anyone wants, Geo-Strategic or otherwise,
even when America had parked its Nuclear Missile Systems there? What was the purpose? Because ‘Experts’, Apparatchiks, and the bought- and- blackmailed, said so? Or was The UK the great protector of The West?  Go back to the pivotal point of Potsdam, and what preceded it.
The Deterrent has not ‘Saved’ The UK to date; it has destroyed it. Russia has, in recent years, fought wars in Georgia (twice), and Chechnya (three times). It has also intervened in South Ossetia, Belarus, and Crimea. The deluded and destroyed of Ukraine are left to their chosen ideological inducements and romances. They have the option of moving across to The Russian Protection Zone of Dombass.
Russia and China stood mute when America was selling the prosecution of both the Korean and Vietnam Wars to The UN. Why would that be? Did either stand to advise that Iraq had no WMDs? War bankrupted America.
It needs to be remembered that the statistics of military strengths and capabailities postured around the net are false. There are no ‘authorities’ counting heads and weapons systems. And no powers honour the accounting of treaties. Russia and China downplay their numbers.
If The UN searches for WMDs in Iraq, The US cannot find Dimona, or locate Cosmodromes (Kettering), it is unlikely that Russian capabilities would be known. And certainly not The Second Strike Capabilities. All military rhetoric of one-upmanship needs to be denied. Only true history is reality.

Meanwhile America, clinging to illusions of essential propaganda, manufactures above its realities. It includes disarmed ships languishing in ports with no crews. Aircraft and armoured vehicles parked in the deserts of the southern states, a missile system that is admitted as non functional, satellites that do not exist, and an inability to even fly to low earth orbit (the great Moon walkers of a half century ago).
The Russian Space Agency is servicing The ISS. Even during The Great Obama Sanctions Serenades. How else was the goose to react. He allowed America in its delerium to march into dark alleys, and received NYET to its preposterous demands.
Work from real history. Not the incessant lies and distortions touted as the deeply flawed soluble version.

NO: the ‘Leaders’ are not better informed.

NO: the great intel to which they are privy is historically verifiable garbage. They are captured by the lies, and become the destructive manifestations and functionaries of those captures.
As far as the morose argument of Deterrent is concerned, China would be marching through Russia, which would never occur, and if The UK ever thought it could deter The Bear, if it decided to march through Europe, what nuking was The UK going to do:
The cities The Bear occupied, or its structured journeys to those cities? Or perhaps Russia itself? How many warheads are at issue? How many would get through? Would Russia not factor in such an equation? And what would bring The Bear to march? The sausages of Berlin? The croissants of Paris?
The Oder-Neisse was a protective buffer zone. The Cold War was an American Construct. Russia has since learnt not to respond.
Rosneft, the leading world oil conglomerate, has appointed former German Chancellor (The Social Democrats and The Greens), Gerhard Schroeder, to chair its board. So if Russia supplies oil and gas throughout Europe, to its chosen clients, and receives commodities and manufactured goods as payment, what went wrong with the Sanctions and the Petro-Dollar: Did we miss something here?
The biggest consumer of oil in the world is The US Military. Second to that is The US Domestic Economy. Obama’s “force downs” of barrel prices; OPEC production reductions; interference to slow delivery, and increase the costs of Canadian Oil Sands and Bakken Crudes, and exclusion of American explorations leading to denial of The Tupi, Venezuelan and Cuban Fields, all damaged America and no one else.
Trump’s recent UNGA waffle script listed grievance states concerned with the American addiction to oil. The prior GWB waffle concerned the Military Industrial Complex and the capture of the American Economy. Trump’s abilities to move the captured America to a sound and rational based economy, is fading.
If Russia already Owns Europe and China already Owns Asia Pacific, someone should inform the self-appointed world policeman. Sitting in the corner with fingers in ears, singing “La La La La La La” is not a connection with the real world.
The question is not if deterrence is a gross idiocy, (with well founded historic proof), but how deep that stupidity runs.
The entire Deterrent Scenario concerning Western Europe is as insane as any other impeccably and rigorously theorised, expertised scenario, sprouting from the minds of the lofty American intellectualised Ivy League elite.
I am grateful, having been privileged to have been educated in The Old English System. Before the insane, progessive, and intellectualised, Comprehensive, Common Core, and Wyndham stultifications.
And of course the natural progressions that would flow from those great advances, delivering the gross retardations that we suffer about us, on a daily basis.
The UK has wasted hundreds of billions of pounds chasing American induced madnesses that have virtually also bankrupted The UK. Money that would have been better spent on maintaining a sovereignty and self-sufficiency with legitimate essential trading.
The UK has four submarines capable of delivering Trident. Because of the idiocy of that pretend weapons system, only one of the four can be in the Atlantic and armed at any time. The other three are permanently in a cycle; to repair; in repair; or from it.
That one submarine, effectively, supposedly guarding America’s Atlantic end, is on the first strike list of all and sundry. As are America’s Information Systems, and America’s extensive fault lines and volcanos. And you thought it would be a missile on missile war at first instance?
American Carrier Groups can’t possibly remain silent and disappear. They will launch fighters and bombers. The survivors of each Mission Round having no where to land on return. And of course far flung bases (600 around the world), denied Information, are very easy targets. Floating in voids such as The USS Donald Cook and Porter. Denied weapons capabilities such as The USS Ross and The UK Trident Platform (Florida Test). Or having ‘Stealthness’ exposed as the naked emperor (The USS Virginia, The Kosovo War).
From The Battle of Berlin to the present, Russia (USSR), drew its lines in the sand, and the West dared not breach them.
Russia sweeping Europe after The Battle of Stalingrad, and moving into The Battle of Berlin, is one of the greatest events of World History. The unconditional surrender of America and The West, along with the by-then non-existent Axis, was etched in history at Potsdam.
America and its sucklings failed in the Bolshevik Revolution; WWII; The Cold War; The China Policy; The Domino Theory; The USSR-Russia Transition, to the present.
What has Propagandised Retardation not delivered to the well informed, highly educated, discerning, professional dross of the insular brigades. Carrying the extensive baggage of induced paranoia, prejudice, and naivette, is such an onerous responsibility. As well as the retirement of the unaligned; Rational and Critical Thought Processes; not conducive to the absorbed, fashionable, socially and morally correct and responsible, derangement by Intellectualised self-Retardation.
The stupidity continues. Trident, which is effectively a dud (The failed Florida Test), is now due for an upgrade. After seventeen years of the current insane version; The UK by its minority Tory Party and its pathetic May, are preparing to sign off on the latest version of the toy. Cameron has run from the room.
There are breaks in The Tory ranks, and its DUP essential coalition partner, has not been correctly sounded. The blackmailing DUP will get its pound at every turn. And of course Labour sees a reality and a better expenditure; The People of The UK. The SNP will give no support. They already chased out Anglo-American Atomic Waste Storage and Processing.
The monumental imbecile Howard: When Australian PM relieved Scotland’s problem, and moved everything to South Australia, he just forgot to mention it to The People of Australia. They might object, as they did to his attempt to change The Australian Constitution; The GST; The Australia Card Identification System; Retrospective Legislation; Disarmament; Performing as a demented puppet to every American wish; abandoning innocent Australians captured in foreign legal maizes; and bankrupting and fire-selling Australia through an economic incompetence never seen before in Australia’s history. Apart from overseeing the perpetration of False Flags and Hoaxes, that made thinking Australians cringe.
Russia missiles ISISThe UK May agenda is to spend an announced £20 billion to upgrade Trident. With a little add-on of some £4.5 billion for 4 new submarines. And we know how American Military Industrial Complex estimates are full, complete, accurate, and on budget!
To muddy the water for the various retard herds, a choice of three systems is postured. The reality is that none are needed, but Trident has again been decided and bribed in.
The pretend contenders are: The Mirage 2000 NK2; The AGM-129-ACM; and The Trident II D5 (upgrade) quoted above. All these have the same contractor names and patterns. Russia and China already hold the overrides. And the platform submarines are on first strike.
To view the trillion pounds pissed away by The UK on its useless militarism, as a grand American suckling, since the end of WWII to date is tragic.
Britain squandered its empire, then its sovereignty. Now in a final stand to take back its sovereignty; it’s captured, useless, meaningless, token, and blackmailed, pretend administration, and longterm bought apparatchiks, want to further attempt to drown the already terminally damaged people of The UK.
The World has moved on from Shooting Wars to Economic Wars. Those late in leaving the former for the latter will not be granted an advanced standing.

Huge Leap In Land Ownership By Chinese Investors

Land owned by Chinese investors soars tenfold in just a year – and they now own 14 MILLION hectares of Australian property

  • Chinese investors own ten times more Australian land than they did last year
  • More than 2.5%, or 14 million hectares of land, owned by Chinese interests
  • Foreigners own a quarter of land in the NT and 14 per cent of all farms

Chinese investors now own ten times more Australian land than they did last year.

More than 2.5 per cent, or 14 million hectares of agricultural land, are owned by Chinese interests.

The UK and China are the largest owners of foreign-held land in Australia, according to figures from The Australian Tax Office’s Agricultural Land Register.

Foreigners own a quarter of land in the Northern Territory and 14 per cent of all farms across Australia, The Age reported.

In Queensland foreign interests own more than 17 million hectares, and in NSW and Victoria over 3 million hectares.

In November last year Fairfax revealed land owned by Chinese investors had risen to over 3 million hectares.

In fact, China appears to buying the world at an increasing pace: Conquering the planet without raising a single weapon?

Fairy Queens, Bears and Eagles, by G Squared

Once upon a time in The West, there were four little Fairy Queens.

Four fairies

Nutty: Hillary Clinton.
Goody: Marine le Pen.
Dumby: Theresa May.
Bady: Angela Merkel.

They all decided to run for election, believing all the children loved them, and the Big Bad Wolf would protect them. Except for poor little Goody. All the elections were manipulated by dark corridor globalist Big Bad Wolves.

Nutty lost (8/11/2016) to a kind but stupid elf named Donny. Her handlers’ electoral interventions backfired. So they blamed a Russian Collusion Delusion, mobilised the livid celebrity princesses, the shill media liars, and dragged along a comic, ill-informed minority.

They had a lot of baggage; from institutionalised paedophilia and permutations of perversions; to thievery on a grand scale. They had even reached the highest secular levels of Indulgences and Dispensations. The Vatican was livid.

They used Deep State Government, Power and Authority for personal gain on a scale that had not been seen. The illusion of Power Base. Tens of millions of innocents died and even greater numbers were displaced by the meaningless expendables, as they dutifully followed the orders for the insanities that they could never comprehend.

The years of Sick Willy Clinton, Barry Obama, and Nutty Hillary, are etched in American History. That which cannot be retraced but must never be permitted to occur again.

One must not question one’s chosen superiors. Civilisation would fall.

The Clinton and Obama Foundations, having their streaked underwear exposed, had no meaning to the brigades of expendable braindeads. Defending that which lost all relevance over a century before.

She destroyed The Democratic Party and their empty foundations. They have no Meaning, Message, or Champion.

Signing off on a ghost written book of fiction is a pathetic, but just, ending to a pathetic career. Scenarios that only the long lost empire of America could entertain.

Goody lost (7/5/2017) to an evil little elf named Puppet Boy Manny. Goody’s evil Puppet Father knifed his own daughter in her Presidential aspirations. She wanted to change NWO Europe, and repair the French economy. The Big Bad Wolves would have none of it.

Dumby lost (8/6/2017) and was pushed into a face saving coalition. Her 50 day snap election turned her majority party into a minority, reliant on opposing forces; obstructionist to the agendas of her mission.

Her Thatcherite presumptive ability to stare down the opposition has been returned to its unlit origin. As was Thatcherism.

Boris lurks to assume his rightful mantle. All is not well in the Thatcherised-Clintonised Tory Party. She was a bad choice, used to ferret down the holes of Brexit and the stupidities that only Cameron could own. But a token nonetheless.

Britain began its journey to a self-immolated loss of soverignty at the hands of a murdering paedophile; who lied. Who would believe it. The Official Secrets Act being dusted off to hide the insular barbarity, to the very top.

The journey of the once great empire travelled the insane path to The 1972 European Communuties Act. The UK squandered its sovereignty by a combination of; blackmails, desperations to hide, and the politically ubiquitous thirty pieces of silver.

Britain never had anything to gain by bowing to the false god of the disguised NWO. A further layer of apparatchik insanity is never a source of economic rationality. On what planet does economic stability and growth derive from an over-arching parasitic administrative paradigm that knows no correlations between activity and economic value.

Non-Compliance with The Maarstrict Treaty saved The UK. Compliance destroyed Greece.

Greenland, dragged in with Denmark, broke loose and rejected the EU insanity as soon as it could.

The Treaty of Rome was a mutual trading treaty. Too good to resist. In a blink it became the greatest apparatchik pig’s breakfast imaginable. Devastation by Expertism and Centralism. The final proof that economic and bureaucratic theories can never intersect reality.

Monumental economic wastes and swerves, as commodities and manufactured goods in excesses were subsidised and thrown away, as massive shortages of the same occurred parallel. A world where poverty and socio-economic devastation were created, that we’re previously being alleviated.

The very definition that Centralism is the evil to humankind that it is.

May’s desperation in leaning to The DUP as a coalition essential, was an error. The DUP will demand, there is division in Tory ranks, and the slighted SNP will see its day. The combined realities will see May packing her smalls for a quick exit, much as Thatcher. Although the latter seemed not to be able to comprehend the stench she had created herself.

There are some 20,000 pieces of statutes, regulations, statutory instruments, and allied garbage, needing to be expunged. Thames sewer blockages greater than those recently encountered are anticipated.

On what planet were the non-entities of BeneLux powered by permanent Works in Progress, Studies in Still Life, Sheltered Workshops, Artificial Intelligence, Ideological insanities, and Intellectualised morons capable of setting guidelines for anyone? Weren’t their own histories ever viewed ?

The art of causal socio-economic devastation by numbers. Omphaloskepsis as a life form for the chosen.

The current ‘European Union (Withdrawal Bill)’, not May’s stupidity of ‘The Repeal Bill’, is the issue. The SNP has The Sewel Convention and Holyrood’s mandatory Legislative Consent Motions. Labour and Tory breakaways are the Westminster reality for a smooth and meaningful Brexit. Not May’s mashup with The Irish and a crossed finger for Tory unity.

The stupidity only deepens. And this is now a real numbers power game. Not a “feed the children more” stupidity syndrome.

Bady lost (24/9/2017) and was pushed into a face saving coalition. Her election turned her majority party into a minority, reliant on opposing forces; obstructionist to the agendas of her mission.

What the children didn’t know, was that Nutty, Puppet Boy, Dumby, and Bady, all work for the same Big Bad Wolves.

Goody, Donny, and Vlad, do not.

Moon emerged for South Korea and knows the importance of the unification of Korea. It carries the trade link with China and Russia. North Korea for decades, has manufactured ‘Made in China’ consumables. As Hong Kong was the trading port for China.

China has taken the lead to douse the dead end suicidal rhetoric from America. As America’s largest creditor, it is protecting its interests. In the denied real world, America is militarily impotent, and economically bankrupt.

Cutting through the cute and kiddy take away concerning North Korea, China has given North Korean Companies operating in China up to January 2018, to close. It has also instructed joint venture Chinese companies in North Korea to close. China says it has reduced textile trade and is renegotiating; coal, steel, and oil.

Will any of this occur as the kiddy take away reads?..No. America is standing on its hands as a result of its own spiralling rhetoric. China and Russia are kinder to America than it deserves.

The turning point was North Korea stating that America has declared war. Which is the point of the current actions by China. As a consequence of The 1953 Armistice, it falls to Russia and China to firmly put America back into its box. As they did in 1953 and 1975. But this time to permanently disarm America. Don’t be deluded by American populist rhetoric.

Both The Russian and Chinese Navies, stand in the Asian seas. Their Airforces are at hand. They don’t need the gross stupidity of mobile airfields. It’s not mobility and flexibility. It means you do not belong. Their armies can swiftly move; in unheard of numbers; along the land paths of their interests.

Albeit America bankrupted itself by illusions of empire. The problems are the tail endings: the imbecile sucklings which followed the stench, as some form of moral, self-defence, and dysfunctional humanitarian madness.

What level of mass retardation do American administrations need to play to?

—————————————————————–

The children, because of their bad schooling, are not able to absorb that The Bear and The Eagle are friends. So Donny and Vlad have to pretend that they are enemies. And Donny has to pretend he has finally succumbed and is now the puppet of The Military Industrial Complex, and The International Banking Cartels.

The problem being how hard he has to pretend!

Donny chided Boeing and LockMart for being greedy, even though they are structured monopolies; and with concocted US government agency collusion. They are in the hidden band of instigators of that which they pretend differently.

Collusion, blackmail, threats, lies, and deceptions, producing slaughters and devastations. Is this really a valid economy?

Barry Obama was able to get the government lackeys running Alternative Media to sell the lie that Jade Helm was not the return to barracks of The US Military, but preparation for Martial Law.

Barry had reached a state where all the lies and pretending, could actually no longer even feed the great constabulary. Ships were docked and crews were moved, to give the illusion of a navy, as theorised.

In Trump’s Amada idiocy; not only The White House, but The Pentagon had no idea which 7th. Fleet ships were parked in Japan, off Oregon, or conducting ‘games’ with; Japan, South Korea, The Philippines, Australia, and New Zealand.

The exposed Charge Down Failures (4 known collisions in 2017) of The US 7th. Fleet (Asia) has brought about its being sent to dock. It’s called; ‘Operational Pause’.

The poncing of The 5th. Fleet (Middle East) has delivered complaints that it is being harassed by small Iranian patrol boats.

Russia manged  The Kursk, MH-17, KAL-007, U-2, Murmansk, Ukraine, Crimea, Chechnya, Ingushetia, Georgia, and South Ossetia Incidents etc. Iran managed Operation Ajax, The Vincennes, Iran Contra, and The Iran-Iraq War etc. Malaysia handled The MH-17, MH-370, and undersea detonation wave Incidents. Japan managed Fire Bombing, Nuclear Devastation, chemical, and atomic ‘accidents’ etc. There is hardly a corner of the earth that has not paid a price.

From Central to South America, to The Caribbean, Africa, The Middle East, Asia, Eurasia, The Sub-Continent, to Eastern Europe; the dead hand of American Imperialist Delusions is visible. The shortest lived empire in history, of some 100 years, has caused the greatest devastations in the history of the world.

The USS Donald Cook, Porter, Ross, Virginia, Incidents, etc. are well recorded in the minds of those who send the orders to the expendables. Apart from the countless hidden ‘accidents’ as The USS Montpelier etc.

Incompetence is also well recorded by The USS; Forrestal, Memphis, Toledo, San Jacinto Incidents etc.

The 7th. Fleet was whining that its spy planes, when they tried to move out of the permitted patterns, were being ‘intimidated’, and ‘provoked’ when chased back into line by The Chinese Airforce.

If The USN or USAF did not follow directions then they would suffer operational, PR and Morale disasters such as The Hainan Island and KAL- 007 Incidents etc.

For The Great Constabulary Expendables to believe their Mission Statements on the back of their lifelong induced Belief Systems, they have to be lied to, incessantly. Any break in that transmission with exposure to Truth and Reality is destructive to Morale. Rational and Critical Thought is nowhere in sight.

Similarly with all the children herded to pretend to vote and make decisions, based on ideological concoctions and tutored deceptions. It’s all just a big illusion. The children are economically enslaved for life by their Owners

As admitted, the SR-71 flights could only fly along The 38th. Parallel North, and not across it.

Gone are the days of The U-2 and Murmansk Incidents. Gone are the days of America having satellites overhead; without them having ‘accidents’.

Did the world become a less safe place, because America’s world constabulary presumptive was returned to where its sun doesn’t shine.

Reagan’s Star Wars was a lie. Obama’s Full Spectrum Dominance, was a lie. No less than the prior China Policy, Hegemony, and Domino Theory Idiocies.

China TrumpThe Trump Armada against North Korea, is a well recorded stupidity that was played out. Not satisfied with that learning experience; Big Donny and Jimbo again start sabre rattling. Jimbo delivers a round of public flatulence, that he will annihilate North Korea.

All because North Korea is threatening the world, by flying unarmed missiles and dropping them in the sea around Japan. Or so America says. When America fire bombed over 60 cities and nuked 2 others in Japan, that was a totally different moral  paradigm, not the most horrendous War Crime against civilians in history. America was thrown out of Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos by China and Russia.

The children are now advised that The USN is flying off the east coast of Korea. They are not however told that there is a sharp u-turn at the extended 38th. Parallel North.

The takeaway for the kiddies is that America has shown it has bombers and it can demolish North Korea, whenever it likes, as it flies over North Korea. They are not told that the billion dollar bombers are junk. They are not Stealth as exposed in Kosovo, and The Russian Barents Sea Incidents. America does not have the technology.

Missiles fired from The USS Porter and USS Ross; from The Mediterranean at Syrian Government installations were over-ridden and dropped. The RN Trident Missile test off Florida was over-ridden, returned and dropped into the sea near the submarine that fired it. The USS Donald Cook and USS Porter were EMP ‘switched off’ and floated without communications, weapons systems, or engine power.

The current North Korea story for herd consumption, lacks the reality of The 1953 Armistice. And that the American junk flying along South Korea is unable to function a Mission Round from Guam.

America also singed The Amistice on behalf of The UN, when it ran from Korea in 1953. The 38th. Parallel North was the agreed dividing line determined by Russia at the end of WWII.

The further America runs its false narratives to its children, the more deeply it entrenches itself. Is the pending unification of North and South Korea, going to be explained by a grand American Diplomatic Coup. And only something a grand negotiator as Trump could accomplish.

When North Korea responded to Mattis and Trump by asking if America had declared war; the American skid marks of rhetorical retreat are still smoking. China came to America’s rescue again.

America is diverting focus from The Middle East. The disasters it has caused in Iraq, Libya, and Syria.

If you slaughter the orchestra conductor to demonstrate to the audience that you are their hero, how are you going to continue when you can’t read music, are confused as to which orifice faces which end of a wind instrument, but you know only that drums can be banged ?

…As you may have learnt from the activities of other primitive societies of eons past!

An Economic Lesson for China and Russia

Economic lesson Russia china
Is there anyone in Trump’s government who is not an imbecile?
After years of endless military threats against Russia—remember CIA deputy director Mike Morell saying on TV (Charlie Rose show) that the US should start killing Russians to give them a message, and Army Chief of Staff Mark Milley threatening “We’ll beat you harder than you have ever been beaten before”—now the US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin threatens China. If China doesn’t abide by Washington’s new sanctions on North Korea, Mnuchin said the US “will put additional sanctions on them [China] and prevent them from accessing the US and international dollar system.”
https://www.rt.com/usa/403118-usa-china-sanctions-north-korea/
Here is the broke US government $20 trillion in public debt, having to print money with which to buy its own bonds, threatening the second largest economy in the world, an economy on purchasing power parity terms that is larger than the US economy.Mnuchin threatens China
Take a moment to think about Mnuchin’s threat to China. How many US firms are located in China? It is not only Apple and Nike. Would sanctions on China mean that the US firms could not sell their Chinese made products in the US or anywhere outside China? Do you think the global US corporations would stand for this?
What if China responded by nationalizing all US factories and all Western owned banks in China and Hong Kong? China US economy

Mnuchin is like the imbecile Nikki Haley. He doesn’t know who he is threatening.
Consider Mnuchin’s threat to exclude China from the international dollar system. Nothing could do more harm to the US and more good to China. A huge amount of economic transactions would simply exit the dollar system, reducing its scope and importance. Most importantly, it would finally dawn on the Chinese and Russian governments that being a part of the dollar system is a massive liability with no benefits. Russia and China should years ago have created their own system. Being part of Washington’s system simply lets Washington make threats and impose sanctions.
The reason Russia and China are blind to this is that they foolishly sent students to the US to study economics. These students returned completely brainwashed with neoliberal economics, “junk economics” in Michael Hudson’s term. This American economics makes Russian and Chinese economists de facto American stooges. They support policies that serve Washington instead of their own countries.
If China and Russia want to be sovereign countries, they must pray that the imbecile Mnuchin does cut them off from the dollar system that exploits them. Then Russia and China will have to put in place their own system and learn real economics instead of propaganda posing as economics that serves Washington’s interest.

Former Prime Minister John Key has reportedly sold most of his sprawling Parnell property to a buyer in China.
NZME reports Mr Key and wife Bronagh pocketed around $20 million, keeping only around 650 square metres of the original 2340 square-metre site.
It’s believed the couple are planning to build a smaller house where the tennis court currently sits.
The Keys didn’t respond to a request for comment.

Yeah. Says it all really.

Cashless Society: China’s KFC Introduces Facial Recognition Payment System

By Nicholas West

Step by step, facial recognition has been accepted by the general public for security; its appearance is proliferating at airports and at train stations around the world. With that acclimatization in full swing, facial recognition is also becoming a preference in the name of convenience as it is being adopted for conference check-ins and other events. Logically, the next incarnation purports security and convenience in the form of biometric payments using facial recognition.

Reuters reports that an upscale version of KFC, known locally as KPRO, is a testing ground.

Diners at a KFC store in the eastern Chinese city of Hangzhou will have a new way to pay for their meal. Just smile.

Customers will be able to use a “Smile to Pay” facial recognition system at the tech-heavy, health-focused concept store, part of a drive by Yum China Holdings Inc to lure a younger generation of consumers.

Yum China, which spun off from its U.S. parent Yum Brands Inc last year, is trying to rev up growth in the world’s second largest economy, where food safety scares and changing consumer tastes have dented sales since 2012.

Yum is still the largest fast food chain in the market, where it has over 7,685 outlets. Its China same-store sales have also been slowly improving, rising in the second quarter of the year on a strong showing by its KFC brand.

[…]

Diners can pay by scanning their faces at an ordering kiosk and entering a phone number – which is meant to guard against people cheating the system.

“Combined with a 3D camera and liveness detection algorithm, Smile to Pay can effectively block spoofing attempts using other people’s photos or video recordings and ensure account safety,” Jidong Chen, Ant’s director of biometric identification technology, said in a statement.

As I wrote in 2014, the move to give everyone a global unique ID that can be verified across nearly all human activity has been in the works for some time. The principle behind this is that YOU are the password of the future.

Naturally, the fear of identity theft and cyber-banking crime of all stripes has been the sales pitch to accept identity tech such as facial recognition, iris scans, and fingerprinting, as well as their attendant databases.

Digital sign-in services, smart cards and a range of biometrics have all been offered as perfect solutions that are starting to enter the market at many levels. Moreover, there is an ongoing cooperative effort between global banks and corporations to ensure that there will be standardized, centralized entry into the consumer/Internet/banking matrix of the future. Couple this with the (hackable) “Internet of Things” entering our homes whether we approve or not and we are finding ourselves at the threshold of a new reality.

China’s technocratic and authoritarian leadership is the perfect synthesis to advance biometric payment systems.  Utilizing Alipay, China’s largest digital payments system that is an affiliate of mega corp Alibaba, China is transitioning to a cashless society at the fastest rate in the world, as seen in the graphic below.

And China’s cashless society incredibly goes right down to street-level. From the Observer:

…if you want to spare some change for a beggar you no longer need to rummage through your pockets. Now, you simply scan the beggar’s bar code. This has already happened in China.

In fact, the most populous nation on Earth has set out a formal plan to create a cashless nation within 5 years, with Alipay even having hosted a “Cashless Society Week” to spur nationwide adoption by banks, corporations and merchants.

With this as the backdrop, then, we are starting to see a rollout among popular merchants like KFC.   One of the main issues for anyone who is concerned about this direction is that, as the Reuters article alludes to, the number of young “tech savvy” consumers is rising. So, essentially we have an entire generation who is being raised on this type of intrusive technology without being aware of the larger global agenda that has been planned for potentially nefarious purposes.

I would encourage readers to visit the Better Than Cash Alliance — a government-corporate working group — from which many of these “de-cashing” directives have been launched. One will quickly see that this roll-out is not limited only to those countries with overt authoritarian leanings, but spans the globe in many different forms.

As always, sharing knowledge is key in helping to determine the direction of the future. It is particularly important to educate today’s young people who are born with a smartphone and raised on digital systems. Empowered with knowledge of the full scope of what it means to live in the Digital Age, they will at least be prepared to make aware decisions and utilize technology in the most positive ways possible.

Updates On The Saber-rattling!

China Trump

WASHINGTON (AP) ” The Latest on the North Korea crisis (all times EDT):

12:35 a.m.

Chinese state media say President Xi Jinping, in a call with President Donald Trump, said all sides should avoid rhetoric or action that would worsen tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

China Central Television on Saturday cited Xi as saying that Beijing and Washington are both interested in the denuclearization of the peninsula.

The report quotes Xi as saying: “At present, the relevant parties must maintain restraint and avoid words and deeds that would exacerbate the tension on the Korean Peninsula.”

Trump has pushed China to pressure North Korea to halt a nuclear weapons program that is nearing the capability of targeting the United States. China is the North’s biggest economic partner and source of aid, but says it alone can’t compel Pyongyang to end its nuclear and missile programs.

11:55 p.m.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says he will do everything he can to protect the Japanese people as tensions escalate over North Korean plans to send missiles flying over Japan toward Guam.

Abe says: “I will do everything, to the best of my ability, to protect the safety and property of the Japanese people.”

He made comments Saturday while visiting his father’s tomb in his ancestral hometown of Nagato in western Japan.

On Friday, the Defense Ministry said it was deploying four of Japan’s surface-to-air Patriot interceptors in western Japan to respond to a possible risk of fragments falling from missiles.

The ministry did not confirm whether Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera has already issued an order to shoot down incoming missiles.

10:45 p.m.

President Donald Trump has issued fresh threats of swift and forceful retaliation against nuclear North Korea, declaring the U.S. military “locked and loaded” and warning that the communist country’s leader “will regret it fast” if he takes any action against U.S. territories or allies.

The president appeared to draw another red line that would trigger a U.S. attack against North Korea and “big, big trouble” for its leader, Kim Jong Un. Trump’s comments, however, do not appear to be backed by significant military mobilization on either side of the Pacific, and an important, quiet diplomatic channel remains open.

Asked Firday if the U.S. was going to war, he said cryptically, “I think you know the answer to that.”

4:20 p.m.

President Donald Trump says German Chancellor Angela Merkel does not speak for the U.S. on North Korea.

Merkel has said of Trump’s provocative warnings to the communist nation that “escalating the rhetoric is the wrong answer.”

Trump on Friday replied: “Let her speak for Germany,” adding, “She’s certainly not referring to the United States.”

The U.S. president’s warnings that Pyongyang will “regret” any threats or action against the U.S. are a break with the diplomatic language of his predecessors. But Trump said Friday that millions of Americans support their president “sticking up” for the U.S. and its allies.

___

3:50 p.m.

President Donald Trump says his critics are only complaining about his tough rhetoric on North Korea “because it’s me.”

He says days of grave threats to the communist country’s leader, Kim Jong Un, would be welcomed as “a great statement” if “somebody else” uttered them.

Trump adds that millions of Americans support his words because “finally we have a president that’s sticking up for our nation and frankly sticking up for our friends and our allies.”

___

3:40 p.m.

President Donald Trump says North Korea’s leader will “regret it fast” if he threatens or acts against Guam, or any other U.S. territory or ally.

Trump says tens of millions of Americans support his tough position on North Korea’s nuclear threat.

Following days of grave threats to North Korea, Trump directed his latest warning Friday directly to the communist country’s leader, Kim Jong Un.

Trump mocks Kim

1:10 p.m.

An escalating exchange of provocative rhetoric between the United States and North Korea is alarming international leaders. Russia’s foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, estimated the risk of a military conflict between the U.S. and North Korea as “very high,” and said Moscow is deeply concerned.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel declined to say whether Germany would stand with the U.S. in case of a military conflict with North Korea. She called on the U.N. Security Council to continue to address the issue.

Japan has started deploying land-based Patriot interceptors after North Korea threatened to send ballistic missiles flying over western Japan and landing near Guam.

Meanwhile, American and South Korean officials said they would move forward with large-scale military exercises later this month that North Korea claims are a rehearsal for war.

12:45 p.m.

A Democratic congressman is urging House Speaker Paul Ryan to reconvene the House from its summer recess to consider legislation prohibiting a pre-emptive nuclear strike against North Korea.

Rep. David Cicilline (sihs-ihl-EE’-nee) of Rhode Island, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, says that in light of President Donald Trump’s “reckless words” threatening North Korea, the House should immediately take up legislation barring a pre-emptive nuclear strike without prior congressional authorization.

Cicilline said Trump “has made a dangerous situation even worse by recklessly asserting that the United States is ‘locked and loaded’ to bring ‘fire and fury’ to North Korea.”

Cicilline said Trump’s bellicose language against North Korea has raised alarms around the world, adding that “if the president will not defuse this situation, then Congress must.”

11:20 a.m.

Japan has started deploying land-based Patriot interceptors after North Korea threatened to send ballistic missiles flying over western Japan and landing near Guam.

The Defense Ministry said Friday the PAC-3 surface-to-air interceptors are being deployed at four locations: Hiroshima, Kochi, Shimane and Ehime.

The deployment is largely aimed at responding to the risk of falling fragments while missiles fly over the region.

The four PAC-3 systems are brought from eastern Japan, as its missile defense is largely centered around Tokyo. They are expected to arrive in the designated sites early Saturday.

The ministry did not confirm whether Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera has already issued an order to shoot down incoming missiles.

9:35 a.m.

Russia’s foreign minister says the risk of a military conflict between the U.S. and North Korea is “very high.”

Sergey Lavrov said Friday that Russia is strongly worried about escalating rhetoric coming from Pyongyang and Washington. He added that “when it comes close to fight, the one who is stronger and wiser should be the first to step back from the brink.”

Asked how Moscow would act in case of a military conflict between the U.S. and the North, Lavrov answered it would do everything it could to prevent the worst-case scenario.

Lavrov said Russia doesn’t accept the North’s nuclear weapons bid and pointed at a proposal by China and Russia under which Pyongyang would freeze its nuclear and missile tests while the U.S. and South Korea would halt their military drills.

___

9:15 a.m.

Despite tensions and talk of war, life on the streets of the North Korean capital Pyongyang remains calm.

There are no air raid drills or cars in camouflage netting as was the case during previous crises. State-run media ensures that the population gets the North Korean side of the story, but doesn’t convey any sense of international concern about the situation.

North Koreans have lived for decades with the state media message that war is imminent, the U.S. is to blame and their country is ready to defend itself.

At a park in central Pyongyang Friday evening, young people practiced volleyball and grandparents and parents watched children on climbing frames and swings.

___

9 a.m.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel says she doesn’t see a military solution to rising tensions between the United States and North Korea and called for a de-escalation of the rhetoric.

Asked Friday about U.S. President Donald Trump’s latest statements, Merkel declined to say whether Germany would stand with the U.S. in case of a military conflict with North Korea. She said, “I don’t see a military solution and I don’t think it’s called for.”

Merkel called on the U.N. Security Council to continue to address the issue. She says Germany would work to find diplomatic solutions with the countries involved, the U.S. and China in particular, but also South Korea.

She added: “I think escalating the rhetoric is the wrong answer.”

Earlier this week, Trump said the U.S. would slam the North with “fire and fury like the world has never seen” if it provoked America again.

___

8 a.m.

President Donald Trump is warning of military action “should North Korea act unwisely.”

Trump tweeted: “Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!”

North Korea has announced a detailed plan to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles toward the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam, a major military hub and home to U.S. bombers. If carried out, it would be its most provocative missile launch to date.

Trump said this week the U.S. would unleash “fire and fury” on North Korea if it continued to threaten the U.S.
