Just a reminder, things between the US and China have deteriorated and could get worse

May 4, 2020

Chris Temple joins me today to focus on the tension between the US and China. At the end of the last year a Phase 1 deal was signed and there was a lot of optimism for continued progress.

This year everyone has been distracted with COVID-19 however any progress that was made between the US and China has dissipated very quickly. Things look to be getting worse as the year progresses.

    It di not have to be the way it is;
    The Travon Martin hoax:

    The release of covid-19 may have been accidental, but its spread to the US AND THE REST OF THE WORLD WAS NOT.
    China should be kicked out of the WTO and Taiwan should be recognized.
    No CCP Chinese student should get a US entry visa from here on out.

      My home town of Swansea is twinned with… Wuhan. Yep, seriously.

      The local Uni just built a new campu on the Bay – Huaweii funded a huge chunk of it and – I am not making this up – the new law campus was named after, and opened by, one Hilary Clinton. The town is full of Chinese students with new apartment blocks going up to house them. The city has boomed on the back of Chinese money. It is rumoured that the CCP own some of the new student accomodation blocks.

      Chinese money has inflitrated and influenced universities across the Western world – if that gets switched off vast numbers of universities will no longer be financially viable.

        That is the technique used by the CIA to destabilize countries, and the Chinese are excellent copiers.

          Well, I almost made the comment that China has, in terms of my town, done far more DIRECTLY economically than the US has ever done.

          Now, I say that tongue in cheek, as I live a 5 minute walk from a huge park from which, on June 5th 1944, thousands of GI’s left the park – it had been turned into an enormous army camp – heading to France and becoming the second wave ashore at Omaha Beach.

          My point being that China has spent their money across SE Asia, Africa and Europe in ways that directly has buoyed local economies. But what is my small town compared to the great universities of the US, UK and Europe, to the big tech firms of Silicon Valley and the Hollywood studios and their actors – many of whom appear to have bent the knee to the CCP.

    I look forward to listening to this in a couple of hours. But I was wondering about the oil price today when reading about China dusting off the war drums.

    We clearly are at the start of a new Cold War with tremendous implications for metal prices, oil, manufacturing of the tat that the West relies on from medicine to cheap shoes to plastic things… I assume, if Hilary wins the US election (Yep, I think she is waiting to be parachuted in to replace Biden.) that the continued decline of US dominance will, well, continue. But with Trump as President… is this 1945 again?

    The supply chain is broken, incentives should be given to building up everywere but ccp China filling up of the supply chain.

      What is even more dangerous is that we are about to enter into 40 years of a cycle of climate change with a Grand Solar Minimum. While the weather will be ameliorated by global warming, we are entering into 40 years of reduced crops and some years of partial crop failures. But China has been acquiring desert land in Africa, which was main grain-growing land for the Roman Empire when weather patterns that we are now entering into last existed.

        May 04, 2020 04:57 AM

        Africa is ideal ‘living space’ for China. Where have we heard that phrase before?

      Thank-you CFS for the greensmoothiegirl interview with Dr Judy Mikovits.
      That was once again a very informative hour and fourty five minutes.
      I have been following Nikola Tesla and the quote that Energy, frequency and vibration hold the secrets of the Universe and we are all part of one energy field.
      The Max Planck Institute has done studies when Schuman resonance was not present how health deteriorated.
      This could be a link to 5G and the deteriorated state associated to the congruent state of the body,with links to Covid-19.
      Einstein is quoted as saying that nothing exists except Electromagnetic Vibrational Frequency.
      Mararu Emoto has published “The hidden Message in Water” He has exposed water to different frequencies, froze the water and photographed this under a microscope.
      Nikola Tesla, Albert Einstein and Max Planck were all geniuses.
      Put them all together and what do you come up with. At least I do is the failure of the medical association to make the connection to health and Electromagnetic Frequency.

        My bad, posted in wrong interview

    Chris is right about the Russia is evil madness. The Russians have a lot to fear from China due to their enormous land border. It would be very hard for the Russians to stop a Chinese land grab of the resource rich far east of Russia.

    A pair of timely articles for this thread at south front.

    May 04, 2020 04:03 PM

    “sucking countries into debt……..”. That’s interesting that the Chinese picked up this tactic, from where? We wrote the book on the subject. Remember John Perkins and his book “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man”? Sad story with Equador. We screwed them royally with oil and the Texaco connection and now they get screwed again by China………..

    Anybody here listen to David Hunter? Personally never heard of him but it’s an interesting listen: He’s got a different road map to look forward to…………

    I think Trump and Xi Ping are fighting the same enemy. Xi needs to get rid of his communist party which wants to have a war. Trump is trying to get rid of his communist party (known as democrats) which want to start a war. What’s happening now is full exposure of the communist parties around the globe. Trump, Putin and Ping are in harmony of its exposure and defeat. Russia is and has alway been an ally of the US. It’s the communist party (known as democrats, RINO’s, and cabal controlled media) that never wanted a US president and a Russian president to get on the same page to destroy the communist party/oligarch families/cabal.

    This article explains some of the exposure.

    As I reported in this forum, statistical evidence exists to suggest many early covid-19 cases were misdiagnosed as flu or pneumonia.
    Here is the 7th or 8th proof of that thesis:

    Just what will Great Bear open & trade range today? I suspect down a minimum of 15% on the open.
