PODCAST: Destroying Diplomacy with China

On the path to Cold War

On FPF #523, Will Porter returns to the show to discuss the deteriorating relationship with China. Last week, the US forced China out of a consulate in Houston. China responded by evicting the US from a consulate in China. The breakdown in the relationship between the US and China – and the US maximum pressure campaign against Iran – is forcing Iran to rely more on China. The two countries are expected to sign a $400 billion agreement soon.

amerikans cannot compete—they require imperialism, tariffs, sanctions to extend their empire another 10 years—at most

as Durkheim and theoretical distinct thinkers–consensus historians, parsonians, Marxists all observe—the state always reflects the values desires of its people —only denied by anti authoritarian amerikan children as Gore wrote…”THE PEOPLE ALWAYS GET THE GOVT THEY DESERVE” J de Maistre

in anticipating what US power will do next (internal or international) it’s worth considering what a drunken wife-beater would do.

There isn’t enough alcohol on the planet to make the wife-beater as manic as the US government is routinely.

The US is in a downfall…the empire is no longer trusted by their own allies. Saying that, how do they bring back that trust? Is it even possible at this point? I seriously doubt it! Right now, Mike Pompeo (“we lie, we cheat, we steal”) is doing his utmost to try to convince the world to completely distrust China when it’s the US who is creating havoc everywhere. Needless to say that Pompeo is not that successful with his lies and games. You just need to look at what the US is doing right now in Europe to poorly attempt to stop the Nord Stream 2 pipeline to Germany. Constantly threatening allies and European companies because the pipeline is now a “threat to Europe”. Better yet, Murcan morons call it a “national security threat to the United States”. Murcans make me laugh when they use the “national security threat” line as an excuse to attack others. Not that long ago, Canada was a “national security threat” to the US because of aluminium. Yes, the evil aluminium producers needs to be labeled as terrorists… :-)) Actually, I’m surprised they were not.

At the end of the day, the US is, more or less, playing the same cards they used against Russia in Europe. They need allies to attack them…to start a war against China but, like Russia, China is not taking the bait. How frustrating that must be for the Murcans.

USA’s trust around the globe is tanking faster then ever. Like NATO, people just don’t trust them anymore.

The US future is extremely bleak. I believe that they will suffer the same fate as the former USSR.
The main difference will be that once it happens, Russia and China will never allow it to get back on its feet…ever!
Murcans will deserve everything coming to them in the near future. The country is already fighting from within and it will be getting worse. The next economic collapse will be the last nail in their coffin. Many States will separate and some will join Canada. The cards are already in play. They came extremely close back in 2008 from falling apart. Clinton begged China back then to buy over 3 trillion of US debt. Do some think China would support the US again? It would take a miracle to save them from a coming disaster.

How can they be trusted by their allies when they couldn’t be trusted by the founders?
Russia and China are not driven by MICIMATT profits, nor do they have ambitions of world hegemony. Both of them share ambitions of being left along by the American Leviathan and will bind together to accomplish their separate independences, if they have to. If America were to have a second true revolution back to a constitution obeyed as intended, the world could see a future of peaceful coexistence. Unfortunately, Huxley’s Brave New World is more likely to be the future.

Yep. Most of the rest of the planet wants no more association with a country whose elites and citizenry have become ignorant, crude, greedy, selfish, virtue signaling, celebrity worshipping, arrogant, brainwashed, miserly thieves. I included all of the descriptors I could and I think they are mostly accurate. That’s now the predominant impression of Americans.

Foreigners no longer envision Disneyland, clean, pleasant suburbs, natural wilderness, pioneers, cowboys, and impressive movie stars. That image died during the ’80s and ’90s. They now envision ghettos, riots, thugs, Hollywood sluts, porn, fat greasy wall street frauds, masculine women, feminine men, big bombs blowing up little villages, masked cowards, and underpaid abused labor.

Welcome to the dust bin of history.
