To paraphrase a former White House occupant…It depends on what your definition of free trade is. TPP it ain’t.

Have you ever stopped to think what makes up US foreign policy? What have Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and their antecedents wrought?
The main US foreign policy tools for winning hearts and minds include bribery, intimidation and hellfire missiles. Not a lot has changed.
In the Middle East we create an atmosphere that breeds dozens of terrorist groups we don’t understand then pay, train and equip them all to fight each other. We do Islamists a favor by upending Middle Eastern countries so they can walk in and take over, we try two or three times if we have to. We team up and fund Sunnis who attack(ed) us to fight Shias that haven’t attacked us. We never mention 9/11 and Saudi Arabia in the same day.
The EU and NATO policy is fund their defense and require them to spend their ill gotten US taxpayer dollars on US armament ‘upgrades’. You have to keep up to snuff if you are going to run with the big boys. As a bonus the MI Complex keeps campaign coffers well fed.
Central and South America, Southern Europe/Asia, Africa and far East Asian countries and other assorted minions are encouraged to take our money, do what we say, not go pinko and not speak kindly to Russia and China.
Pacific (Lake USA) countries are told to accept US money, troops, bases and missiles as they will be the first to be crushed by China and North Korea whom the US is economically and militarily aggravating. As is the case with Eastern Europe and Russia.
Uppity commies that complain when we sail warships up to their shores need to be reminded who is master.
Pay Israel whatever they demand, do whatever they demand, do not ask them to help fight ISIS and ignore their partnership with Saudi Arabia in funding Sunni terrorists. Do NOT ‘Remember the Liberty’.
Any son of bitch that robs, rapes, murders, tortures, gets rich off US tax payers and selling drugs gets a free pass if he is OUR son of a bitch.
Get military bases established anywhere and everywhere.
If any miscreants (excluding Israeli or SA miscreants) fail to obey they can expect a ‘democracy’ advocating NGO, Gladio and/or CIA to straighten them out using the above mentioned tools. When Victoria Nuland invites herself for a visit you know you are in for a whoopin’.
I’d say that about covers it.
Be seeing you

A few points jump out from this Brexit commentary.
We will hear about dreaded isolationism. The one-worlders and multi-culturalists act as though the UK will build a Trump-wall around the island and turn into hermits.
There is no reason why trade and other mundane daily activities cannot continue with little change. The change the ‘outers’ want and is dreaded by the EU is the UK will no longer contribute to the failed EU state benevolence fund. Not wanting to send your youth to the Grave Yard of Empires is in the mix too and hardly constitutes isolationism. Read the rest of this entry »

Notice the stunted discussion of the origin of the current refugee crisis and non-existent discussion of the end game?
The US policy of democratization via overthrow for governments that fail to do as they are told has torn the Middle East apart. The “we had to destroy the village in order to save it” mentality has sent millions of refugees toward Europe.
Angela Merkel committed Germany to 800,000 refugees. What is her plan to house, feed, clothe and (gainfully) employ these Muslims? Will they become European Germans? Will they be accepted by ethnic Germans? Doubtful.
Multiply this scenario by the number of ethnic European countries under EU pressure to accept refugees. European Christian birth rates are rapidly losing ground to prolific immigrants. Europe and the UK already have more immigrants than they know what to do with, let alone track. Many are relegated to the fringes of society and strain welfare systems. Former French President Sarkozy has said “multiculturalism does not work”. Nationalism is strong everywhere. Europe’s future holds great strife thanks to US.
The single-state Europe the EU honchos crave may well be a Muslim one.

When I first heard of China buying our debt I thought-This isn’t supposed to be happening. This is America. What have they got that we don’t?
Cash. China has lots of cash to spend because they print it like US. That is why they are in a manufacturing bubble. Their bubble like ours will certainly burst. But when and how will they react?
The debt buying is an indicator of a power shift. A drop for the US more than a rise in China.
I agree with the opinion that the economic and political power of the West, the US in particular, is shrinking. The failed drug war, the holes in the Middle East which we are digging deeper, finding terrorists under every rock, lately African rocks and other feeble attempts to grab power. Too many failures. Too much scrambling. The US is looking desperate. We are a mess. Read the rest of this entry »

Like a lot of other places, the current Ukraine population evolved from the influx of various peoples. Most are of Slavic heritage. In the 30s and 40s the Russians added some of Poland and Romania to the mix. Not surprisingly they can have their differences. The Western half of the country leans towards the EU and the Eastern half looks to Russia. Ukraine is complex.
Ukraine needs help. The EU offered few hundred million dollars worth of loans and reform demands while Russia offered 15 billion dollars worth loans and discounted oil and gas.
Chaos has since ensued, with our helping hand. Our point person for government overthrow is Victoria Neuland, the FU lady. Read the rest of this entry »
