    Re. Segment 3:
    Not only is China buying up infrastructure projects (AND benefiting financially from those) they are using this action to get large numbers of Chinese immigrants into those other countries. Many countries subsidize university education and China uses this fact to infiltrate Chinese citizens and get them educated cheaply. The consequence is that all over the world there are highly increasing numbers of Chinese; in UK, in New Zealand, in Australia,,in various countries in Africa, everywhere.

      Dick Tracy says:

      Downtown Toronto is mostly populated by mainland Chinese. They own lots of real estate and if you walk through the university areas downtown you see them everywhere. That is a good thing because the educated become exposed to our way of life which will at some time translate into a change in their society. I’m sure many of them try to stay here where they can express their views much more openly. China and Japan have fiercely resisted immigration, their government doesn’t trust qualified immigrants let alone the ones that come with no background and cross your border illegally. The Chinese or Japanese would not be so kind if they had the problem that America does with migrants. When have The Chinese or Japanese provided relief to other countries when a natural disaster occurs. The answer is NEVER! DT

        I believe that you are correct Mr Tracy virtually no outside relief help.

        There are many Chinese in my neck of the woods and my impression is that very few return to their homeland for an extended length of time.

      Horowitz’s interview discloses that “People Without Borders” are involved, but their site says this in an opening page: “Please note that People Without Borders is NOT the organization supporting the Caravans of Central American migrants. Some news agencies have translated Pueblo Sin Fronteras to “people without borders” but that group is not the same as People Without Borders. People Without Borders is NOT associated in any form or manner with Pueblo Sin Fronteras or their activities.”
      Also, what happened to the discussion about the Vatican City and its franchise “The Roman Catholic Church”?

    International Migration Convention
    State of Purpose: “The International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families entered into force in July 2003. Its primary objective is to protect migrant workers and their families, a particularly vulnerable population, from exploitation and the violation of their human rights.

    UNESCO advocates ratification of this convention by all states and disseminates information about this convention and other legal instruments concerning migrants.”

    Read the language of the Convention and wonder why the Traitor Obama signed it. Why Trump has withdrawn from it, and why many other EU countries are withdrawing from it…e.g. Austria, Poland, etc.

          But don’t any of the citizens of Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, etc. have any love for their country and heritage?

          It is not exactly true that dictators cannot be overthrown or in the extreme assassinated. It has happened many times in history.
          If, when the going gets tough, everybody simply illegally moves to America, nothing will ever change; except America, as we know it, will also die.

          One could almost claim that it is a duty of Americans refuse to accept illegals so that the braver population does not leave their home countries and that they remain to create better governments.

    Household debt hit a record high of $13.5 trillion last quarter.
    Total household debt is now $837 billion higher than its previous peak, which was in 2008 before the recession.

    In N. California, due to the fires, 50,000 are displaced from uninhabitable homes.
    (Paradise, which used to house 27,00 now not only has lost its homes, but most of its infrastructure: electricity, gas, water.)
    The US is debt for how many $ Trillions, and the rest of the world thinks it should give them aid and take in millions of illegals.

    And this won’t kill the standard of living fo US citizens?

      I had not read Rooster Bar because of reviews like:
      “The Rooster Bar: John Grisham: 4708364220923: Amazon.com: Books
      However, “The Rooster Bar” was very disappointing in so many ways. The first three-fourths of the book was just downright boring and slightly depressing. Two of the three main characters were borderline repulsive and the third female character came across as stupid and insulting to me as a female.”

      Now, I might drop into my local library.

    And yet the politicians often want more immigrants, regardless of the repercussions for US citizens.

    You think increasing welfare handouts won’t bankrupt the country?

    What about simple things like water supply, electricity supply?
    You think politicians are increasing infrastructure?

    What about simply driving on the roads/
    You think traffic density is not becoming a problem?
    You think pollution is not becoming a problem?

    We still hear talk of global warming, now re-named climate change, after all predictions failed to be correct…….What a joke!
    Seriously…. we have cycles in weather. Some are on very long time scales, but we are about to enter a period in time when several minimums in temperature associated with those cycles WILL coincide and we WILL have a time period when advances in plant technology will be insufficient to save many from food shortages and even starvation.
    These advances have rescued us for decades, but….
    Believe it or not we will reach a Malthusian limit.

    Nigel says:

    While I agree with much of what CPA argues for, the thing I disagree with is its argument that the reason the US has so much debt in simple terms is that foreign powers keep lending it money via the mechanism of the US trade deficit. That’s a bit like arguing that the reason an individual is in debt is that credit card companies create the debt not that the person using the credit card. Yes I appreciate that the individual or state might be limited in what it could borrow if the ‘credit card’ was not as readily available but the US seems intent on creating its own debt disaster with or without foreign assistance.

    OOTB Jerry says:

    The fact is, there’s now around $3 trillion of bonds rated BBB, the lowest rating bracket above junk. How much of this debt – like General Electric bonds – should be rated junk that isn’t? We suspect the next liquidity event will clarify the answer to this question.

    The real question, however, is how did $3 trillion of questionable debt pile up to such a perilous level to begin with?
    The fake capitalism of the 21st century is, in essence, a destructive form of self-cannibalism. The economic model depends on three factors: big deficits, monetary policies of extreme intervention, and a central authority with a highly visible hand to direct the supply and demand of goods and services. Taken in concert, these factors consume tomorrow’s productivity with the gluttonous appetite of pigs devouring slop.

    The results are an endless collection of gross distortions, misallocations, debt pileups and vulnerabilities. Stocks, corporate bonds, residential real estate, General Electric, Washington lobbyists, student loan debt, defense contractors, digital gizmo producers, Ford Motor Company, per capita healthcare costs, Anheuser-Busch, Bryce Harper’s imminent $400 million contract, unfunded state pension liabilities, federal debt, and on and on…
