Decoding 9/11 is the Key to Understanding Modern Geopolitics

Most observers of modern geopolitics face a heavy dose of confusion on a daily basis. The seemingly nonsensical nature of post-9/11 American foreign policy leaves too many questions unanswered, questions like “Why regime change at any cost in the Middle East?” or “Why do they hate Putin so much?” In order to answer them, one must first understand the geopolitical circumstances of the 20th century, the fall of the Soviet Union, and the lead up to 9/11.

As Halford Mackinder noted in his 1904 work The Geographical Pivot of History, the central, contiguous land mass consisting of Europe, Asia, and Africa is incontrovertibly the most populated and resource rich area in the world. Mackinder also recognized that Russia sits right in the middle of this land mass, in what he called the Heartland, meaning that any attempt at world domination and the establishment of a New World Order by the Globalist powers that be could never be successful without removing Russia as an obstacle. But as history has shown, military conquest of Russia is far easier said than done. Swedish and French campaigns chased Russian forces across vast but empty expanses before becoming bogged down and ultimately frozen and destroyed by Russia’s brutal winter. Arguably, the last successful, lasting military invasion of Russia occurred in 1240 when Batu Khan’s Golden Horde annexed Moscow and the Eurasian Steppe into the Mongol Empire.

To the Western oligarchs, the Russian obstacle was a undeniable impediment to their overall strategy. It also meant that the possibility of an alliance between resource rich Russia and industrialized Germany, the classic nightmare scenario of the West, would never go away. What’s more, any attempt to establish a Russian-led world hegemony would spring from the most geopolitically advantageous location on the globe.

With this in mind, a new plan was formulated by the elite- covert regime change. As revealed by Anthony C. Sutton’s seminal work Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution, immensely powerful forces such as the Rockefellers, Morgan Bank (now JPMorgan Chase & Co.), National City Bank (now Citigroup) and other supposedly pro-Capitalist institutions and actors aided and funded Bolshevik revolutionaries like Leon Trotsky in toppling the Russian government and installing a one-party system under the Communists.

By 1917, the Marxist cultural infiltration was complete and Western elites had succeeded in capturing Russia without even firing a shot. The next step in establishing the New World Order was to merge the Soviet Union with the United States. We know this because the Reece Committee uncovered such a plan in their investigations of the Ford, Carnegie, and Rockefeller foundations in 1953.

“Rowan Gaither was, at that time, President of the Ford Foundation. Mr. Gaither had sent for me, when I found it convenient to be in New York. He asked me to call upon him at his office, which I did.”

“Upon arrival, after a few amenities, Mr. Gaither said, ‘Mr. Dodd, we have asked you to come up here today, because we thought that, possibly, off the record, you would tell us why the Congress is interested in the activities of foundations such as ourselves.’

“And, before I could think of how I would reply to that statement, Mr. Gaither then went on, and voluntarily stated, ‘Mr. Dodd, all of us who have a hand in the making of policies here, have had experience either with the OSS during the war, or with European economic administration after the war. We have had experience operating under directives. The directives emanate, and did emanate, from the White House. Now, we still operate under just such directives. Would you like to know what the substance of these directives is?’

“I said, ‘Yes, Mr. Gaither, I would like very much to know.’ Whereupon, he made this statement to me, ‘Mr. Dodd, we are here to operate in response to similar directives, the substance of which is that we shall use our grant-making power so to alter life in the United States, that it can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union.'”

-Norman Dodd, chief investigator for U.S. Congressman B. Carroll Reece’s 1953 Special Committee on Tax Exempt Foundations, as interviewed by Edward G. Griffin in 1982

With the combined might of the US and the Soviet Union, Germany and the rest of world would not stand a chance, and the Globalist one world government would then be installed.

The German factions witnessed all of this, and knew that they could never resist such a alliance, or establish a hegemony of their own, if they were still divided into East and West. While the Globalists in America and Europe spent nearly all of the 20th century pushing Socialism, the policies of Perestroika began to take hold in the Soviet Union during the late 80’s, and it would have appeared that the great merger was under way. In 1989, the Soviet Union began to crumble, the “Sovietologists” and the fake intelligentsia were stunned, and the German Globalists sprang into action with a plan for quick reunification.

During the 90’s, America enjoyed its position as the sole superpower of the world. The pro-West Atlanticist politicians like Yeltsin who pushed for Perestroika would take power, and new policies of privatization developed with “help” from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Harvard Institute for International Development would result in a truly colossal amount of wealth going to a small group of Russian oligarchs. Yeltsin’s decision to sell off state-owned assets and natural resources to foreign entities for pennies on the dollar proved utterly catastrophic for Russia, but was good business for its oligarchs and Western Globalists like George Soros. Yeltsin had been conned into selling out Russia and its people, and by the late 90’s, everybody knew it.

On the other hand, German reunification went smoothly and quickly, and the country returned to its pre-war position as the economic and industrial powerhouse of Europe. The EU was formally established in 1993 via the Maastricht Treaty and the Euro was officially introduced. Monetary policy and an exchange rate mechanism were established as Europe became economically integrated into one union. Due to Germany’s central location and heavily industrialized export economy, it quickly became the strongest economy in Europe, and other countries who had become insolvent due to corruption or instability would eventually rely heavily on German prosperity.

Everything was going according to plan for the Globalists. Russia was being siphoned dry and controlled by the Atlanticists and central bankers, German Globalists were incorporating Europe into the centralization paradigm, and all of the appropriate structures and mechanisms to maintain a one world government were being installed.

And then it all fell apart on September 11, 2001.

In his excellent book on the subject, Hidden Finance, Rogue Networks, and Secret Sorcery: The Fascist International, 9/11, and Penetrated Operations, Dr. Joseph P. Farrell lays out a thoroughly researched and meticulously detailed prima facie case that the destruction of the Twin Towers, Building 7, and the attack on the Pentagon was not just an inside job by the elites here in America, but consisted of two separate operations, one within the other. According to Farrell, the first was an operation to facilitate a “new Pearl Harbor” called for by the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), which consisted of merely damaging the target buildings in order to destroy evidence of a covert slush fund consisting of trillions of dollars of stolen money, and to kick off the final sprint towards global hegemony under the leadership of American Globalists starting with regime change in the Middle East. US military bases in Iraq and Afghanistan would carve out a chunk of the rapidly developing Asian continent and isolate Africa, splitting apart Mackinder’s “World-island.”

The second operation was kept a secret from the Bush administration and US Globalists, and it consisted of the actual leveling of the towers and building 7, the hijacking of the US nuclear arsenal and its command structure (the US had assumed a strategic nuclear posture that morning with nuclear armed bombers and submarines standing at full alert), and the isolation and control of key government officials such as Dick Cheney and leaders of Congress. Dr. Farrell posits that a partial coup had taken place capitalizing on the PNAC operation in order to commit nuclear blackmail against US Globalists in order to force them into (or perhaps, out of) a certain course of action or policy.

So who was responsible for blackmailing Bush and the US elites? Farrell unveils a tangled web connecting the 9/11 hijackers and Osama bin Laden to Deutsche Bank and a shadowy organization known as the Carl Duisberg Society. Duisberg was the CEO of German chemical giant Bayer during World War One, forcefully advocating for the development and use of chemical weapons derived from the toxic waste products of his chemical dye industries. Duisberg would also merge Bayer with BASF to form I.G. Farben, the infamous manufacturer of Zyklon B for the Nazi concentration camps.

This group is just one part of what Dr. Farrell calls the “Fascist International,” a mafia-like, extra-territorial covert organization consisting of Nazi holdovers from World War II, the German industrial magnates who followed them, and various levels of peons, cutouts, and shills from all over the world. One of those peons was, apparently, Mohamed Atta, mastermind of the 9/11 attack. Citing the late Michael C. Ruppert’s Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil, Atta was listed as a Carl Duisberg Society scholarship recipient and tutor from 1995 to 1997, had opened accounts with Deutsche Bank while planning the attacks in Frankfurt, and participated in a joint US and German student exchange program for four years in Hamburg. Atta even spoke fluent German.

If Dr. Farrell’s hypothesis is correct, and this Fascist International did indeed turn against the Western elites, 9/11 would have represented the beginning of a factional war within that Globalist power structure, an event that Farrell calls “the divorce.” All of which begs the question: “What could have caused this factional war?”

On January 1, 2000, Boris Yeltsin resigned his position as President of the Russian Federation and appointed his Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin, as his successor. Putin immediately set about reforming everything from tax codes to criminal law to economic policy in an effort to reverse the damage done in the 90’s. The same Russian oligarchs who were enriched by Yeltsin’s policies now found themselves locked in a power struggle with the new President over the direction of the country and its people. Although the Atlanticists still had a significant presence in Russian politics, it was clear that Putin had his own plans for Russia, and they did not involve playing along with a US-led New World Order.

With the largely successful prosecution of the Second Chechen War and having survived harsh criticism for his handling of the Kursk submarine incident, Putin had established himself as the manifestation of a new, nationalist direction for Russian politics. After the debacle of Yeltsin, the Russians had responded by picking the anti-Yeltsin, and therefore, the anti-Christ to the Globalists in the US. Putin’s ascension and solidification of power meant that the fleeting window of opportunity for one world government had come to a close. More than 80 years of preparation, decades of political maneuvering and clandestine activities, and untold amounts of blood and treasure spent would soon be all for nought. Mackinder’s Heartland was pulling itself out from under the Globalist thumb.

But with Putin reigning over Russia, Europe and Germany were spared from US global hegemony. In fact, one could make the argument that Putin was, geopolitically speaking, the best thing to happen to Germany since the reunification as the EU and its Euro are now facing the possibility of disintegration. The revivification of the Russian energy industry was an opportunity for the EU to receive cheaper fuel from a region of the world which was more stable than the Middle East, as well as a means to bypass the petrodollar cartel. Once again, we are face to face with the classic nightmare scenario for Western elites- a rapprochement and alliance between Russia and Germany. Whether or not such an alliance is probable or even possible is an excellent question, but what is far more obvious is the effect of Russia’s revival in driving a wedge between Globalist factions. A wedge which would, many years later, manifest itself in the form of President Donald Trump and the Deep State Junta.

I speculate that it is the effect of this new balance of power, or perhaps a disagreement over how to respond to it and its source in the Kremlin, which would have been one cause for the schism among the Globalists, and ultimately, the “divorce” of 9/11. I suspect another cause would have been a deep suspicion among US elites towards the Germans regarding any potential role they may have played in precipitating the collapse of the Soviet Union at a time which would have benefited Germany’s geopolitical position. As stated earlier, the German reunification was handled quickly and smoothly, Angela Merkel herself assisted in this effort by serving as a deputy spokesperson under the stewardship of Lothar de Maizière, who had run on a platform calling specifically for rapid reunification.

Although Merkel and Putin may have more than a few shared interests, I don’t believe that Putin is a pawn for German Globalists. I do believe, however, that Putin is more than willing to play a role in helping China in their attempt to usurp world dominance. While environmental catastrophists in the US and EU demand carbon taxes, stifling regulations, and an end to fossil fuels, emerging markets are more than happy to continue buying Siberian gas. Meanwhile, China has the jump on the US in developing renewable energy technologies, having spent hundreds of billions of dollars on the development of solar panels, thorium nuclear reactors, and even high-voltage undersea power cables to export energy to other countries. While the US was busy spending trillions overturning the Middle East to placate the Saudis, the rest of the world was taking care of their own interests.

Because Globalists pay no mind to silly, antiquated things like patriotism or love of country, they don’t have to suffer the consequences of their misguided, megalomaniacal quest for world domination and the foolhardy attitude they embrace. The window on a US-led hegemony has closed, and a new door has been opened for China to take on the wretched mantle of Globalism with its totalitarian, Hitlerian philosophy elevating the state over God, the collective over the individual, and the end justifying the means. But please do not resent the Chinese, pity them. They have made the ultimate Faustian bargain, one which will slowly but most surely destroy the beauty of their ancient culture and enslave their many people.

An Ocean Apart: The Great Schism Between the US and the EU

It’s either fund NATO, or fend for yourselves, and the President’s insistence forced Merkel to publicly declare her position. Germany’s Chancellor chose not to play ball.

I was somewhat disappointed, but not really surprised, to witness the ouster of certain pro-Trump voices in the mainstream media. I was not shocked to learn that various social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube had begun to blatantly censor independent voices and nonconforming opinions using flimsy copyright violation claims, ambiguously drafted terms of service agreements and equally questionable personal conduct policies written by far-left political advocacy groups. The demonetization of YouTube sapped the will of many anti-Globalists on the platform, which is the primary reason why this blog is not monetized.

I also thought I could change the style of this blog to less frequent but lengthier, more detailed essays with more of an emphasis on the bigger picture, but with fake media reverting back to their old habits of Russian conspiracy theories, anonymous sources which may or may not exist, and some straight up fake news, I see there is still plenty of work to be done and fewer people to do it. The only good news is that the Globalists themselves are forever toiling away at their false narratives and distortions, and that every minute, every waking second of their day is devoted to maintaining the “big lie” that is pushed onto the American people. Those of us who are informed and willing must correct the record, so to speak.

But today, we will not be focusing on Globalist narratives as there are much bigger geopolitical realignments taking place that the fake media are not talking about at all. On his first foreign tour, President Trump had three goals: 1) be the peace through strength candidate, which he pulled off quite well 2) establish economic cooperation with US allies to fund his policy initiatives, which he did with the Saudis, and 3) secure funding for NATO.

The issue of NATO, and Angela Merkel’s refusal to pay Germany’s fair share, clearly defines the growing schism between the US and the EU. The Germans have been spearheading the push for an EU army which would free Europe from dependence on American military might, make NATO obsolete, and ultimately allow Germany and most of Europe to slip out from under the thumb of American global hegemony. It’s either fund NATO, or fend for yourselves, and the President’s insistence forced Merkel to publicly declare her position. Germany’s Chancellor chose not to play ball.

This was ultimately a poor choice, but Merkel and the EU Globalists are very much in dire straits, anyway. The European banking system is failing. Deutsche Bank has been locked into covert economic warfare with the US, and Italy’s oldest bank is on the verge of insolvency. The EU paradigm of debt-based finance, austerity programs, and the Euro have proven to be a failure. Apparently, the socialists in Europe have learned nothing from the Soviets and their inability to adapt to changes at the local level in a top-down style of governance.

And at a time when they needed help the most from their fellow Globalists across the pond, Donald Trump takes power. Had the French election gone to Nationalist and Euroskeptic Marine Le Pen rather than Rothschild banker Macron, the EU’s fate would have been sealed. But the French people have supposedly spoken, and the EU’s wretched existence will continue.

Eastern Europe, on the other hand, has decided to move on. China and Russia’s New Silk Road (AKA One Belt One Road, or OBOR) multi-trillion dollar infrastructure project has been completed. Rather than depending on sea lanes to conduct trade across Asia, goods can be transported via continent-spanning roads and railways, and Eastern European nations are eager to join in.

Notably, leaders of the EU countries most strongly objecting to Brussels policies in key areas of the economy and refugees, such as Hungary’s Viktor Orban, strongly embraced participation in China’s vast $22 trillion infrastructure project…

In remarks in Beijing summarizing his talks there, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban spoke bluntly of an emerging global tectonic fault line. Orban declared that the old globalisation model is obsolete, noting that “a large part of the world has had enough of a world where “a few developed countries have been continuously lecturing most of the world on human rights, democracy, development and the market economy,” a direct slap in the face to the US-led “democracy and human rights” NGOs of George Soros and the CIA-tied USAID which have ferociously tried to topple the very popular Orban.

Orban added that the world today has, “arrived at a cusp between historical eras: the old model for globalisation – built on the assumption that money, profit and technological know-how are in the West, flowing ‘from there to less developed, eastern countries.’ That model, Orban stressed, has “lost its impetus.” The Hungarian leader emphasized the crucial point that Washington and the stagnating governments of much of the EU are in denial. “Over the past ten years, the global economy’s engine room is no longer in the West, but in the East. More precisely, the East has caught up with the West.”

Eastern Europe Tilts to OBOR and Eurasia By F. William Engdahl

Facing US global hegemony from the west and Chinese/Russian economic encroachment from the east, the Nazis-turned-Globalists in Germany are, yet again, dealing with a two-front war.

American and Japanese Interests Align in Space

This elitist pipe dream of open borders and world trade under a world bureaucracy has turned out to be the greatest, grandest boondoggle of our time. The world was simply not ready for Globalism.

While the war between the Trump faction and the Globalists rages on in DC, there are huge geopolitical realignments happening in the rest of the world. The era of free trade, Globalism and the highly-centralized, extraterritorial power of multinational corporations has come to an end. This elitist pipe dream of open borders and world trade under a world bureaucracy has turned out to be the greatest, grandest boondoggle of our time. The world was simply not ready for Globalism. In the end, the level of coordination and stability (most notably price stability) required to integrate and form a one world economy was too much for our current state of bureaucracy and technology to handle.

Individual bosses will often blame one-off factors: currency moves, the collapse of Venezuela, a depression in Europe, a crackdown on graft in China, and so on. But the deeper explanation is that both the advantages of scale and those of arbitrage have worn away. Global firms have big overheads; complex supply chains tie up inventory; sprawling organisations are hard to run. Some arbitrage opportunities have been exhausted; wages have risen in China; and most firms have massaged their tax bills as low as they can go. The free flow of information means that competitors can catch up with leads in technology and know-how more easily than they used to.

As a result firms with a domestic focus are winning market share.

The retreat of the global company

Although Globalism is over, the economic/petrodollar war and the oil glut continues as China and Russia will push their BRICS alternative to the US financial hegemony being run out of the Federal Reserve. The latter has suffered two substantial losses in the recent days- the loss of Turkey as a western ally to BRICS, the Chinese and the Russians, and the accession of Japan to the China International Payment System (CIPS).

The ramifications of the loss of Turkey are fairly substantive, as Turkey was a brick in a geopolitical wall the western powers established to keep Russia out of the resource rich middle east and Africa. But Japan’s membership in CIPS may turn out to be just as damaging, if not more so, than the loss of Turkey. CIPS is the primary alternative and competition to SWIFT, the western system of financial institutions and satellite networks that are responsible for securely communicating and clearing financial transactions around the world. That means the Japanese can skip purchasing the reserve currency of US dollars and allow Japanese banks to wire money directly to and from China.

The fact that the Japanese are able to do this without metaphorical, or literal, earth-shattering consequences from the West will be noticed. More and more nations in Asia may choose to opt out of SWIFT and artificially inflating the dollar. This is, without a doubt, a result of the fall of Globalism and the debt-finance model that has ruled America since the early 90’s, but I am 100% sure that the fake media will pin this on the Trump administration. This is a part of the mess that the President says he has inherited.

But the President did secure investment from the Japanese in terms of high-speed rail infrastructure, and the Japanese were even willing to invest $150 billion from their government run pension fund. This is a sign that American and Japanese interests are aligning on a long-term economic basis. The Trump administration has also focused on lowering the price of the F-35 fighter plane, which has overrun its budget by the billions. As Joseph Farrell at Giza Death Star pointed out, the US has been pricing itself out of the international weapons market by failing to reign in budget deficits on developing programs like the F-35. Countries wishing to modernize their military out of a fear of regional instability, countries like Japan, may be interested in such a program.

During the meetings between the President and the Japanese Prime Minister, North Korea performed another test launch of a long-range missile system capable of striking US soil. The two leaders of the US and Japan issued a joint response, condemning the missile test and reaffirming their alliance and coordination against North Korean missile threats. Although issuing such a statement was a pretty standard affair, the implications behind this alliance caught my attention.

If you’re aware of China’s intention to build a continent-spanning electrical grid running on green energy, you may know Japan was the one who proposed this giant infrastructure plan. It’s no secret that the Japanese have been looking to get away from nuclear power, and one project started in 2015 involves sending into orbit a series of satellites covered in solar panels to collect energy directly from the sun. This power would be beamed down to earth in the form of microwaves to a receiving station, a “rectenna,” where it would be converted back into electricity and distributed via Ultra-high-voltage power cables currently under Chinese development.

Meanwhile, JAXA is planning on testing the technology in space by 2018, with a small satellite transmitting several kilowatts from low Earth orbit to a microwave receiver on the ground. JAXA hopes to have a 100 kW satellite in orbit by 2021, and a 200 MW version by 2028. By 2031, if everything goes well, a 1 gigawatt commercial pilot plant will be in operation, with a full on commercial space-based power industry to kick off with one launch per year starting in 2037.

Japan Demoes Wireless Power Transmission for Space-Based Solar Farms

The reason why I mention this in a defense context is that, theoretically, any satellite that can efficiently beam energy to a specific point on earth could also be used as a weapon. A 1978 NASA study found that an older method using longer wavelengths required a rectenna at least 6.2 miles in diameter. That is a huge area of effect for any potential weapon.

But the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has been experimenting with shorter wavelengths and achieving “pinpoint accuracy.” This sort of accuracy would be much more useful as an anti-missile defense system, and combining this capability with Japan’s proximity to a North Korean launch means that such a device could be quite useful during the short but vulnerable boost phase of a missile launch.

With Globalism dying in a ditch and US and Japanese relations substantially restrengthened, the ball is now in Russia’s court. Putin knows that siding with the Chinese will mean that Russia will always play second fiddle next to the modernized, industrial behemoth of a workforce of the Chinese economy. He understands well the predatory nature of free trade and Mr. Global’s endless scarcity game of debt-financing and austerity, but Russia and China’s interests are already heavily tied together. Judging from Russia’s recent actions and their overarching geopolitical goals, Russia and China will continue to work together in the foreseeable future, but Russia, and Japan, seem to be inching closer and closer to the detente balance of power and away from the Old World Order.

President Trump Goes to Work, China Goes to Davos, and George Soros Goes Underground

The first week of the Trump administration looks like a victory for the everyday, working class people, but Corporate Democrats like Cory Booker, the dishonest media, the out of touch, irrelevant celebrities, and the bubble-dwelling intelligentsia are still protesting the scourge of this evil Donald Trump.

Not long after the peaceful transfer of power was made official, President Trump quickly set to work fulfilling many of his campaign promises to the American people. His first act ordered the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, the crumbling health care program designed in large part as a bailout of the health insurance industry.

President Trump also shut down the Globalist TPP free trade agreement, announcing the US’s withdrawal from the treaty and sealing its fate. He repeated his intention to renegotiate NAFTA in a manner that would put American workers first, and announced intentions to cut business regulations, notably environmental regulations, by up to 75%. The President hopes that these policies, along with slashing corporate tax rates, will attract industrial capitalist and jobs back to the US.

Meetings were also held with the heads of Ford, GM, and Fiat/Chrysler as well as Dell, Whirlpool, Johnson & Johnson, Lockheed Martin, Arconic, Dow Chemical, US Steel, Tesla, Under Armour, International Paper, and Corning to discuss the repatriation of manufacturing jobs. This was the first of a series of quarterly meetings designed to provide President Trump with constructive feedback on restoring America’s manufacturing base.

The first week of the Trump administration looks like a victory for the everyday, working class people, but Corporate Democrats like Cory Booker, the dishonest media, the out of touch, irrelevant celebrities, and the bubble-dwelling intelligentsia are still protesting the scourge of this evil Donald Trump. Despite the successes, there have been a few difficulties as well. Mexico’s President Enrique Pena Nieto cancelled his meeting after flatly refusing to pay for the proposed southern border wall. The administration remains adamant about building the wall, and will use tariffs on Mexico to reimburse the taxpayer for footing the bill. Alex Jones also hinted at the possibility of taxing money transfers going from the US to Mexico to recoup payment for the wall.

As for the Supreme Court, the President announced he will be picking his nominee this Wednesday. He also attacked Democrats who have been delaying his cabinet nominations, labeling them, as I have labeled them, obstructionists.

On the matter of the popular vote results and allegations of massive voter fraud, President Trump announced plans to open a full investigation via the Department of Justice. I have suspected that the Corporate wing of the Democrat Party, along with their Globalist friends, may have artificially inflated Hillary Clinton’s vote tally through polling sites in deeply blue states like California. After losing literally every house of government, the Globalists began taking measures to save face. Denying President Trump the popular vote and astroturfing an anti-Trump movement is the start of another soft-power, cultural offensive and more social conditioning. You know, the usual skullduggery.

Who Was Behind the Women’s March? George Soros-Backed Groups

In the fallout of 2016, it’s become clear to all that the old paradigm of centralization, bureaucracy, social justice and political correctness is being thoroughly rejected by the people of Western culture. This shift in attitudes was evidenced at the World Economic Forum held in Davos, Switzerland, where job-killing technologies like autonomous vehicles were on display, and stuffy eggheads further engrossed themselves in their concept of the welfare state by debating Universal Basic Income.

“The essence of the story is that the elites now want to address some of the shortcomings that have led to a rise in populism. I’m sure their desires are sincere.

“But the truth is that such discussions and calls to action may be too little, too late. Rightly or wrongly, the image of the Davos meeting is etched in the global consciousness as a symbol of elitism — as a go-to meeting for billionaires and top policy makers.

“If two years ago it was cool to want to be part of the elite, and it probably was, then now it has become a throwback to a bygone age as distant as top hats, and horse-drawn carriages.”

Davos Just Jumped The Shark

The rise of populism and the reality of the Trump presidency means that America is now off the Globalist track, and not interested in what’s going at Davos.

1484724583644

Filling this vacuum left by America is China, with Xi Jinping being the first Chinese president to attend the forum. This is not at all surprising as the Chinese have always had the most to gain from that old paradigm of debt-financing, free trade and outsourcing.

“As a latecomer to modern industrialisation and its resurgence as an economic superpower, China has certainly benefited from the process of globalisation, particularly following its accession to the World Trade Organisation. China’s recent emergence as a leading global investor suggests that it is ready to help other countries [in] harnessing globalisation and free trade for their economic and social development.

“However, the current global economic climate is full of anxiety and stress, as most countries struggle to find their way out of slow growth or recession.”

China pays serious attention to Davos for a more stable world order

Taking over on the Globalization project will add yet another huge geopolitical task onto China’s already massive global agenda. The Chinese are currently financing giant infrastructure plans in Africa and along the New Silk Road, attempting a take over of the South China Sea and its trade routes, and are planning to construct an international electrical grid covering the entire Pacific Rim. I’m not at all surprised that Putin and the Russians are getting a little nervous over the PRC’s ambitions and hedging their bets appropriately.

But it is the Globalists such as the Clintons, Jean-Claude Juncker, and Angela Merkel who have the worst possible outlook in 2017. There has been a palpable and international groundswell of resistance specifically to billionaire arch-Progressive George Soros and his Open Society NGO’s coming from Europe.

‘Stop Operation Soros’ movement begins in Macedonia

Without corrupt politicians in position to do his bidding, Soros is forced underground and NGO’s become his primary tools for affecting political and social action (usually through mass media). If this anti-Soros sentiment spreads throughout Europe, the Globalists will have lost a big financier and partner in their fight to maintain control over Europe.

macedonia-protest-against-soros

To be honest, I wonder how long Soros has left until he’s cast out of the cabal and put on the menu. Soros succeeded in the liberalization of Russia and the plundering of assets under Yeltsin, but his victories seemed to have ended there. He missed Putin’s invasion of South Ossetia in 2008, and Russia’s breakout from the Globalist hegemony. It was Soros’ Euromaidan faction that provoked Putin’s invasion of the Ukraine, and Soros’ recommendation of economic sanctions that failed to remove Russian troops. One could make a very convincing argument that George Soros was one of the primary actors at the center of the Globalist defeat in 2016.

The Beginning of Geopolitical Upheaval and a New Economic Order in 2017

In order to win back trillions of dollars in repatriation, Trump, through his appointees, has called for the establishment of a new economic order.

After talking about the geopolitically obstructionist nature of the Russian hacking theory in my last post, one might wonder exactly what the Globalists in the DC establishment are obstructing. We already know what the obstructionists want: open borders, the outsourcing of jobs in the “pivot to the Asia,” coziness with the Saudis, endless foreign wars and conflicts, and so on. But what does Trump, and most tellingly, one of his appointees tell us about his geopolitical goals over the next four or eight years in office?

United States

Many are wondering how Trump plans to fund an infrastructure repair bill while cutting taxes. The money has to come from somewhere, and repatriation of trillions of dollars from offshore accounts, foreign investment from allies like Japan, and lots of deregulation are keys for the Trump administration. Repatriation of funds is paramount, or else the administration will fall into the standard establishment protocol of Big Government Republicanism and running up the national debt.

In order to win back trillions of dollars in repatriation, Trump, through his appointees, has called for the establishment of a new economic order. For the position of Secretary of the Treasury, Trump has nominated Steven Mnuchin. Although many immediately took notice of Mnuchin’s membership in Skull and Bones and Goldman Sachs, few know the interesting details of his background.

According to Catherine Austin-Fitts, former Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and founder of The Solari Report, Steven Mnuchin is the son of Robert Mnuchin, the man who ran the equity trading desk at Goldman Sachs.

“When I worked there in the summer of 1977, I used to take some of the courses in the equity sales intern program and knew all those guys, which is how I met his dad. If you wanted to understand everything about equity on the planet, all you had to do was sit on that trading floor. Bob Mnuchin ran the arbitrage desk on that trading floor. You’re talking about somebody with unbelievably deep ties for generations in the equity world.”

In other words, the Mnuchins are Goldman Sachs royalty, identifying at least one group of the deep state who have splintered from the Globalists and aligned with Trump. Catherine also notes how Steven Mnuchin was working closely with the architects of the housing market collapse, siphoning trillions of dollars out of the US economy and taking it elsewhere.

“So the idea of taking the people who engineered the financial coup d’état and using them to bring the money back is certainly interesting. If you’re talking about a machine that has real power, the question is: Can you get it to have a positive return to the taxpayer?”

That is indeed the question at hand. When the old Soviet Bloc countries transitioned to capitalism, debt/equity swaps and equity trading gave insolvent governments a way to restructure their debts by selling off state-owned assets. In Russia, this was done under the Yeltsin regime to benefit pro-Western factions within the Russian deep state, factions that still do not see eye-to-eye with Vladimir Putin.

The lure of privatization could be very effective at repatriating money to the US. For example, the privatization of space required a huge amount of fixed capital, technological development, and innovation, but the lucrative prospects of asteroid mining and space tourism drew in investors and entrepreneurs from around the world. Of course, the financial predators wait in the wings, licking their teeth at the prospect of the classic “pump and dump” to line their own pockets at the expense of society.

Trump’s call for a new economic order is a shift away from debt based finance, centralization and Globalization and a move towards innovation, privatization, and deregulation.

The Middle East

Israeli officials said they felt betrayed last week when the Obama administration decided not to veto a UN resolution condemning Israel’s territorial expansion. Yesterday, the House of Representatives voted to condemn the resolution and demand its repeal.

“The 342-to-80 vote reflected the bipartisan nature of Congress’s support for Israel. Almost all of the votes against the resolution came from Democrats, and a handful of Democrats also voted ‘present.'”

House votes to condemn U.N. security council resolution on Israeli settlements

This is yet another attempt by Globalist stalwarts to sabotage and obstruct any return to a detente policy and to force the next administration back into the status quo. Israel has recently accepted Russian investments and cooperation exploiting the Leviathan gas field, a venture that Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson would be very familiar with.

In Turkey, we have what would appear to be even more obstructionism and sabotage with the assassination of a Russian ambassador at an art exhibition. The assassin claimed revenge for Russia’s actions in Syria, but the only effect this has had has been to embolden and inflame political hardliners backing both Putin and Erdogan, putting pressure on them to act against the West, and sabotaging any possibility of rapprochement between the US and Russia.

With the US becoming energy independent, and the silent, unremarked upon death of “peak oil,” don’t expect the Trump administration to be anywhere nearly as cozy with the Saudis as a Hillary Clinton administration would have been. The Saudis have been trying to sell off ownership of their state-run oil industry in an attempt to diversify their economy- dealing mostly with defense technology and arms manufacturing. Globalist carbon policies dictated this process, but the unexpected victory of Trump, who doesn’t believe in Climate Change, have caused the Saudis to prepare for a future that hasn’t arrived yet, and may not arrive for a while longer.

Asia

After President Obama spoke at a memorial in Hiroshima, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe came to Pearl Harbor to commemorate those killed in action. There has been a sincere desire by both sides (and maybe all of the US factions) to reaffirm our alliance with Japan. With Russia somewhat uneasy over the Chinese takeover of the South China Sea, Putin has welcomed Japanese investment in Siberian gas ventures and worked to resolve the Kuril Islands territorial dispute.With all of this recent fence mending, it would appear that Japan is establishing a position of detente. Given the location of the country, and the conflict between the US and China to control trade around the Pacific Rim, it’s not a bad idea. Expect Japan to play a vital part of any rapprochement between the US and Russia.

On Christmas day, a Russian plane carrying the Alexandrov Ensemble, formerly the Red Army Choir, to a Russian military base in Syria crashed into the Black Sea minutes after take off. The day after, Vladimir Putin declared a day of mourning, and investigations have concluded that it was an accident. But with the recent assassination of a Russian ambassador in Turkey and the flimsy Russian hacking theory being aired on most news networks in the US, I would not be surprised to discover Globalist involvement to – you guessed it – obstruct Trump.

Similar to the assassination in Turkey, the death of the Alexandrov Ensemble, and suspicions of foul play, have been whipping up the Russian hardliners backing Putin to act against the US and pro-Western factions in Russia.

Europe

In Europe, and the EU, the struggle between centralization and sovereignty continues. While the British establishment are still trying to hold back the triggering of Article 50, many European Parliament politicians have become concerned over the formation of an EU military. They have pointed out that such an army would be redundant to NATO, except even more bloated and bureaucratic. Any proposed EU army would also suffer from the same complications in coordination and logistics that NATO suffers from- i.e. language barriers and the need for mass standardization. On top of that, the US and the UK, two of the largest military powers in the world, will not be members of the EU, excluding their military might from an EU army.

In other troubling news, Yves Chandelon, the NATO Auditor General and the man in charge of investigating the international funding of terrorism, was found dead from a gunshot wound in Brussels. The official cause of death has been ruled a suicide, but Chandelon’s family disagrees. Could this be an effort by the Globalists to cover for their friends Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar? It is these three nations who have been implicated in the funding and nurturing of ISIS. Or perhaps this is a measure by the Globalists to rid themselves of further oversight, so they can continue their clandestine operations to manipulate world affairs well after President Obama leaves office.

The Myth of Russian Hacking Omnipotence is a Massive Effort of Obstructionism

Similar to the British establishment’s response to the Brexit, which is now being blamed on Putin, the Globalists in DC decided to obstruct the election in every way possible.

In a last ditch effort to influence world affairs and abate a tide of change not only washing over the US, but the entire Western World including Britain, France, and Italy, Globalist politicians in every nation are blaming Russian hackers for their ills. It’s an attempt not only to focus attention away from their own appalling failures, but to also further entrench the Globalist geopolitical strategy of unipolarism and China first before the Trump administration takes office.

The plight of Mr. Global has become so desperate, free speech is becoming blatantly censored for fear of Russian agents spreading “fake news” (a.k.a. conspiracy theories). Now, social media networks are actively censoring alternative and independent viewpoints, placing them on the same threat level as Jihadi websites.

“The article by reporter Craig Timberg — headlined ‘Russian propaganda effort helped spread ‘fake news’ during election, experts say’ — cites a report by an anonymous website calling itself PropOrNot, which claims that millions of Americans have been deceived this year in a massive Russian ‘misinformation campaign.’

“In other words, the individuals behind this newly created group are publicly branding journalists and news outlets as tools of Russian propaganda — even calling on the FBI to investigate them for espionage — while cowardly hiding their own identities. The group promoted by the Post thus embodies the toxic essence of Joseph McCarthy, but without the courage to attach individual names to the blacklist. Echoing the Wisconsin senator, the group refers to its lengthy collection of sites spouting Russian propaganda as ‘The List.'”

Washington Post Disgracefully Promotes a McCarthyite Blacklist From a New, Hidden, and Very Shady Group

But the older, soft power method of conflating ideology with race is still being used. A little over a week ago, Dutch eurosceptic and Populist politician Geert Wilders was convicted of hate speech for criticizing the religion of Islam. Such blatant censorship is surely a sign of desperation.

Similar to the British establishment’s response to the Brexit, which is now being blamed on Putin, the Globalists in DC decided to obstruct the election in every way possible. From using a third party to demand recounts to subverting electors, the political establishments are simply filibustering, with the British taking the issue all the way to their supreme court and ignoring the will of the people and their own referendum.

But the larger ramification, and the overarching goal of such an effort, is to have a geopolitical effect. It is an attempt to sabotage any rapprochement with Russia, or an abandonment of the China First policy. Trump, with the Taiwan call, has signaled an end to this type of relation with the PRC. By raising tensions at the mere possibility of any deviation in American foreign policy, the political establishment are nothing more than obstructionists acting under the guise of the concerned. And what they are obstructing is a return to the multipolar detente, balance of power politics of Henry Kissinger under Nixon.

This is the type of foreign policy, balance of power, that won’t hesitate to put an end to amicable relations with the Chinese. As Globalist lawmakers across the West are set on outsourcing their manufacturing bases in their “pivot to Asia,” their disenfranchised electorates have voted to put an end to it. While the world invests in the development of the Asian continent, China takes the lead on the research and development of green energy, possibly shutting out the West from dominating that new market as America does the world energy markets. If anything, the West has been locked into a detente policy put on by China, being played against the Russians to benefit the PRC.

But the pundits and talking heads, themselves obsessed with the type of personality-driven politics that propelled Trump into the spotlight, very rarely elevate the scope of their reporting to include the bigger picture view of geopolitics. As Hillary Clinton continues to blame everyone from the FBI to Putin to the electoral college in her public psychodrama, the EU disintegrates further, and Globalism under corrupt, corporate cronies continues to be rejected.

Taiwan and Other Tenuous Relationships in the North Pacific

Since 1949, Taiwan has been a particularly sensitive area for Chinese internal politics. In fact, you could call it an old wound that has never completely healed over.

A simple congratulatory call from the president of Taiwan to President-elect Donald Trump has ruffled Beijing’s feathers. One week prior, the Chinese were flying nuclear-capable bombers around the island country, perhaps signaling a warning to Taiwanese nationalists not to act up.

“According to a press release from the Trump transition team about the phone call, Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen offered her congratulations and Trump offered the same to her for her election victory this year. They discussed the ‘close economic, political, and security ties between Taiwan and the United States,’ the Trump transition team said.”

China Lodges Diplomatic Protest After Trump’s Call With Taiwan’s President

Since 1949, Taiwan has been a particularly sensitive area for Chinese internal politics. In fact, you could call it an old wound that has never completely healed over. When Mao Zedong and the PLA won the Chinese Civil War with the help of the Soviets, the deposed government was the Republic of China (ROC) under Chiang Kai-shek, and they were forced to abandon their capital and set up a government in exile on Taiwan. Since then, there has been no armistice, no cease-fire signed between the two Chinese factions. Both governments, the PRC and the ROC, claim to be the legitimate government of China, but the Communists held the mainland, and when Nixon came around to open up relations with China, he chose to negotiate with the PRC.

Although Chiang Kai-shek lead the Nationalist Party and the Republic of China for most of the 20th century, the ROC was first lead by Sun Yat-sen, a doctor, political philosopher, and revolutionary who was born in China, but received an education from American schools in Hawaii. Sun believed in decentralizing power and developing a federal republic of smaller states similar to the US. He lead the rebellion that overturned the last Chinese emperor and the Qing Dynasty. A photo of Sun Yat-sen is featured above.

With the death of the TPP, US foreign policy in the Pacific Rim has stalled, but this contact between the President-elect and the president of Taiwan could be taken as a sign of changing relationships between the US and China.

The whole northern Pacific area is a bit of a work in progress for both China and Russia. Right on their doorstep is North Korea, a nuclear powder keg being run by a megalomaniac. Below the 38th parallel is South Korea, a bastion of Western influence and home to nearly 30,000 US troops. Further east is Japan, who are currently rearming and overhauling their military forces in response to China’s aggression in the South China Sea. Japan has also established its own balance of power, working economically with Russia as a counterbalance for Chinese expansion.

Japan’s recent rapprochement with Russia has also helped to settle the territorial dispute over the Kuril Islands. The Russians agreed to return two of the four islands to Japan, but on the territory they’ve kept, they’ve installed missile systems with a 375 mile effective range.

“The disagreement over the Pacific islands, seized by the Soviet Union in the final days of World War II, has kept the two countries from signing a peace treaty formally ending their wartime hostilities.

“Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has been pushing for progress in the dispute over the islands, called the southern Kurils by Russia and the Northern Territories by Japan.

“The sparsely inhabited islands lie just north of the Japanese island of Hokkaido, in an area rich in natural resources, and they also serve as a strategic vantage point for the Russian military. Last month, Japan protested after Russia announced the deployment of new anti-ship missiles on Pacific islands to the Kurils.”

Russia warns Japan not to expect quick progress on islands

The Chinese are already very busy taking over the South China Sea, stabilizing the Yuan, and building infrastructure along with other long-term geopolitical goals. Having to deal with Taiwanese nationalism may be another issue for China to juggle, and the possibility of a currency war turning into an all-out trade war with the US could threaten China’s ability to coordinate and fund big projects that require heavy, fixed capital.
