“How does Sputnik V differ from the Pfizer “vaccine”?
one difference is that Russia has been researching rna vaccines for decades.
another is the Russian vaccine is less than $10 a pop. Pfizer is $20. again Russia has been studying rna vaccines for decades without a massive profit seeking motive.
Here you go boschohorowdipshitz-
Great Christ look at yourselves- did any of you sinoboobs check the links in that article? No evidence. Pure fantasy. You’re fecking hopeless. Great Game India!
Christ, heard of projection?
Carrie Lam isn’t the Beijing candidate- she represents HK capital. Beijing can sit back and watch the ‘democrats’ destroy what’s left of HK capital, and then pick up the pieces. You did notice the PLA out cleaning up after the protesters? Time is not on HK side.
Your knowledge of belt and road is nonexistent- ignore it then call it a debt trap. Nonsense.
What’s with your fixation on the HK riots, don’t they get enough coverage in MSM? Oh oh, One was shot recently, escalation? Have you never seen this Gene Sharpe playbook? It’s called a color revolution, remember Maidan? The yellow vest have gone on for how many weeks now? Haitian riots, any MSM coverage? Lenin Moreno rolling for his life? Christ the US banned masked protesters in the nineteenth century. Free the paid underage protesters in HK who have been sold cheaply for a pack of lies!
I’m not claiming Britain and America were socialist- although they did institute aspects of a planned economy in war time.
If you are claiming Britain and America won WW2, go ahead, but you’d be dead wrong again.
‘Makes me think of how Britain fought back vs Germany, and Viernam vs the US. Once your entire economy moves into self-defense mode, -almost- anything is possible.’
If you substitute Russia for Britain and self-defense mode for socialism that statement would be accurate.
Paul…indeed. And they just finished a what 27 mile bridge to the mainland? Would they let this turn into another Maidan? Doubtful.
I wouldn’t conflate Mao with the protocols of the elders of Zion. You’ve got it backwards Charles Alban, the tail does not wag the dog.
V Arnold is spot on…this is a color revolution funded by the CIA…These paid protesters are “
pro democracy” “pro-imperialist ”
1958, Mao Zedong: “U.S. imperialism invaded China’s territory of Taiwan and has occupied it for the past nine years. A short while ago it sent its armed forces to invade and occupy Lebanon. The United States has set up hundreds of military bases in many countries all over the world. China’s territory of Taiwan, Lebanon and all military bases of the United States on foreign soil are so many nooses round the neck of U.S. imperialism. The nooses have been fashioned by the Americans themselves and by nobody else, and it is they themselves who have put these nooses round their own necks, handing the ends of the ropes to the Chinese people, the peoples of the Arab countries and all the peoples of the world who love peace and oppose aggression. The longer the U.S. aggressors remain in those places, the tighter the nooses round their necks will become.”
Speech at the Supreme State Conference (September 8, 1958).
well timing is everything, and what timing….a load of fuckery this big screams massive psyop.
well well seems we got here a ginuwine nazi…said in the voice of Slim Pickens. Who is this really, Jules Evola?
That Doug Casey article is pure shite…China has never colonized a territory outside the Chinese mainland. Malicious, manipulative utter shite.
That’s okay by me, since you clearly have nothing of interest to say on the subject.
“The issue comes down to whether we get everyone’s data or China gets everyone’s data,” a former director of the Central Intelligence Agency told me recently. But I don’t think that is the issue at all: More than one kind of technology now exists that will make eavesdropping impossible — not just difficult or expensive, but outside the realm of physical possibility.
The ultimate form of data security is quantum communications, an application of physics that China has pioneered. Two years ago Chinese scientists had a video call with colleagues in Vienna, creating the signal by entangling atoms halfway around the world. The system that makes the communication possible cannot be stolen, because any outside intervention destroys the signal itself. It is like a letter that disintegrates the instant you set eyes on it. Commercial applications of this technology may not be too far away. In 2018, Huawei conducted field trials for data security in optical networks with the Spanish telephone company Telefónica.
‘There is no surplus on planet earth’- baloney.
We throw out half the food grown.
There was plenty of food in the great Indian famines of the nineteenth century, and the bengal famine, and infrastructure to distribute it, but ‘markets’, a benthamite experiment that prefigured future holocausts.
And you know what China doesn’t have, for all the talk of ‘shadow banks’, a quadrillion dollar ‘market in derivatives.
Here from Luciana Bohne:
“The IMF is the debt trap, not China: some VERY basic observations
China’s infrastructural assistance to African countries (and not only) is pissing off the usurers of the IMF. Why?
1. The main reason is that China makes bi-lateral agreements, the terms of which are secret, not available to institutions like the IMF. This hampers the IMF’s ability to assess risk when it negotiates its own loans to China’s bilateral partner
2. Follows on #1. Risk assessment is crucial to IMF because creditors are private investors while Chinese creditors are state-owned enterprises (much more sustainable as “risk). In other words, the creditors are the Chinese people.
3. The IMF loans are granted based on demand to constrict expenditures in the public sector and expanding them for the private sector, based on the market fundamentalist faith that the engine of economic growth is the private sector. Thus, IMF loans require of the debtor “structural adjustment” of public services and utilities–shrinkage of government role in the public good. This means that the IMF dictates domestic policies. China’s loans are not predicated on interfering with domestic policies. They calculate their returns in terms of human development–believe it or not. Whereas the IMF calculate in terms of returns to investors. In other words, China lends to countries (23) that the IMF considers at risk and even severe risk (16), without forcing them to adopt market fundamentalism–or communism, for that matter.
4. In the Congo, right now, the IMF has a big headache because it cannot assess risk of debt renewals.. On the one hand, it does not know the terms of China-Congo debt agreements, and, on the other, it does not know how much China has covered IMF death distress to the Congo in one-time deals. The IMF, therefore, complains of “lack of transparency” by China and partner. (who would be “transparent” with loan sharks?)’
Have you posted a single positive story about China this year, or ever? And your argument about China having no answer, or communism having no answer, was completely without substance, and laughable. A Langley thought experiment.
You disappoint me.
Maybe do your homework before posting another Langley thought experiment
Diogenes shrugged… time is a river, and you’re waist deep in horseshit.
And here….add this to your China file or whatever….”The trade – get out of the dollar and look at gold … People are totally on the wrong side of this trade right now. People don’t own gold and silver. They’re too long the dollar. They have no idea just how much inflation the Federal Reserve is going to be unleashing. And it’s not going to be good for stock prices. The inflation is going to be in the supermarket, not in the stock market.”
And that is, and has been, exactly what the world’s central banks have been doing.”
I’ll be back to enlighten you further when this plays out.
Here we are Raul…for your morning porridge…https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-08-06/treasury-yields-plunge-gold-jumps-ahead-yuan-fix
‘What’s happening is the US dollar is rising in value (or expected to) and that rise in effect lowers the value of the Yuan. The same is happening to other currencies as well,as the dollar rises. Why is the dollar then rising? There’s a global stampede to safety and that means buying US Treasuries–which are now in freefall in terms of interest rates (and escalating in terms of price). Prices from one year or even less, to 10 and 30 year Treasuries are accelerating. But to buy Treasuries, foreign investors must sell their currencies and buy dollars before buying Treasuries. That escalating demand for dollars is what drives up the value of the dollar, which in turn drives down the value–i.e. devalues-the Yuan in relation to the dollar.
In other words, the slowing global economy which is being driven by the Trump trade wars is what is causing the flight to the dollar and to the safe haven of US Treasuries. Trump’s policies are at the heart of the global slowdown (already in progress due to fundamental forces stalling investment and growth). That slowdown is what’s driving the dollar and in turn lowering the Yuan. Trump policies are ‘manipulating’ the Yuan.
China is of course allowing the devaluation to occur. Previously, it was entering money markets to buy Yuan in order to keep it from devaluing. Now it’s just allowing the process to occur. This is China’s response to Trump’s imposing an additional 10% tariffs on $300 billion of China imports last week. It signals that the ‘trade’ war (now becoming an economic war) has moved beyond tariffs.’
The US is not moving it’s production home- have you noticed a pickup in US construction of manufacturing capacity? Did you note that truck orders are down 81%? Does the US still have the logistics infrastructure to move this new production capacity? How are the US rail systems? How is the US economy , let alone the morale of it’s already impoverished population going to handle an inflationary spike? None of this is opaque.
Time will tell, but I hear you Raul- ‘so China raised a billion out of poverty…piffle’
And again if any country is headed for autarchy is would be the USA…god man are you blind?
You don’t get it…’The crux of the dilemma probably lies in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), which I’ve been saying for years is just China’s way to sell its overcapacity and overproduction abroad. Sure, there may be loftier goals, and surely in the glitzy brochures, but the fact remains that China has tried to be an economic miracle, doing in 10 years what took the US a century, and it never slowed down its growth, at least not voluntarily, even if that might have been a wise move.’
Seriously, WTF? I mean are you being deliberately obtuse? China is an economic miracle raising a billion people out of poverty. The fact that you cannot acknowledge this, and post articles from exiled Chinese economists, i.e.cia assets, as proof positive that china is an economic house of cards, and are astounded that anyone would call you out on this? Give me a break.
Well your sinophobia is just astounding, and all of the above could be more accurately said of the USA. It is the USA that will be isolated if they don’t first start ww3.
Cory Morningstar has an excellent series on the fascist fraud that is the green new deal…..http://www.wrongkindofgreen.org
Yes you keep banging on about the great big ponzi in China, forgetting that China can wipe out their debts while the west will never do so. That is all the west has is debt. I could go on but give me a fecking break with this nonsense….what has your defected chineses scholar informed you of recently ffs
“And on the international stage: while Japanese corporations are plundering entire countries, and corrupting governments, China is helping to put entire continents back on their feet, using good old Communist internationalist ideals. The West does its best to smear China and its great efforts, and Japan is doing the same, even inventing new insults, but the truth is more and more difficult to hide. One speaks to Africans, and he or she finds out quickly what goes on. One travels to China, and everything becomes even clearer. Unless one is paid very well not to see.”
George Galloway The History Boys 13: the miracle of China
‘In arguing that China can’t be dictated to, Xi followed in the footsteps of previous leaders. Mao Zedong rejected the advice of Soviet leaders in both his strategy for winning the revolution and in his desire to pursue his Great Leap Forward industrialization campaign. Deng refused to entertain Mikhail Gorbachev’s ideas for pursuing political reform together with economic opening and rejected 1990s “shock therapy” as socialist systems were dismantled rapidly across the world.
“There is no textbook of golden rules to follow for reform and development in China, a country with over 5,000 years of civilization and more than 1.3 billion people,” Xi said.’
Well, who cares what Xiang Songzuo, “a relatively obscure economics professor at Renmin University in Beijing”, who recently defected to the west, has to say? What else is he going to say? And isn’t it to the good of China to rid itself of as many neoliberal minded economics professors as possible?
How many military bases does china have? Oh yes, they just put one on the moon. At any rate if Eurasian multipolarity isn’t the future, then there isn’t much chance of a future.
