Trade War

Richard Duncan wrote The Dollar Crisis revised in 2003. I reread it in 2008 at the height of the financial crisis and it read as if it had just been written, it so closely followed the crisis. No other book have I read twice, and no other economist do I have greater respect for. Here’s a rare piece from him: Podcast: Deconstructing Trump’s tariffs, turning point in history and the end of globalisation. If Trump’s trade war is not scaled back then expect this to come to pass.

To show how tariffs bring American jobs home, consider this: Harley-Davidson Begins Kansas City Plant Shutdown As Production Shifts To Thailand.

Commentary

As you will have discerned by now, I consider that the CIA is the most evil organization on the planet. Much of its subversive operation has come into public awareness through declassified official documents, apart from accounts by people previously close to its operations. The problem is that it can take 50 years before documents get declassified and even then may be heavily redacted. Fortunately there are enough discerning people ferreting out its activities today.

A year ago I had thought to write an article about the CIA by collecting references to its activities involving assassinations of foreign officials and coups against democratically elected foreign governments. As I started to do research I discovered such a trove of information by people who had already gone down this path that I abandoned the effort as superfluous, other than for my own enlightenment.

In this post I will link to an article, the first of three parts, that details the actions of the US in Syria though its primary instrument of covert foreign intervention and subversion, the CIA. It should be a good addition to your reference list.

Commentary

Brief but more relevant, temporally.

Trade War

We like to have clear start and end dates for wars. Ray Dalio sees the tariffs against China launched by Trump a couple of days ago as an event that can spiral into a full-blown trade war which then has the potential to become a kinetic war.

Commentary

This post has been gestating for well over a month. I need to get it out. Perhaps the most important item is one I received from a friend recently. It concerns how the Clown Prince’s narcissistic ego is threatening to absolutely destroy this country’s economy:

I have been focusing on setting up gardens. I expect the food I can grow will be important to my family in the coming years. If Trudeau blows away the auto sector then we will face very quickly, economic collapse.

There is a suggestion in the video that the government is dragging their heels on NAFTA waiting to see if the Mexicans will elect a left-wing president. Trudeau is stupid enough to think that in such a case, he and the Mexicans will have strength to get the NAFTA deal he wants. The problem is Trump holds all the cards.

Trade Wars: Martin Armstrong has some interesting perspectives on the US moves, in this very short blog post: Protectionism & Trade Wars. The next article looks at the role of vehicles in trade wars between the EU and the US: France And Germany Clash Over US Car Tariffs. But consider this graphic from the article:

Commentary: As today’s focus I want to offer two videos that outline the contamination of our food chain by agricultural practices and synthetic chemicals such as Monsanto’s glyphosate, trade name RounrUp, that are poisoning us and creating an epidemic of physical disease and disorders.

The first below, describes how modern agriculture has lead to food of decreasing nutritional value contaminated with compounds and genetic structures that are creating a major health epidemic while at the same time destroying soil quality:

The second, below discusses among other things the adverse effects of sugar and glyphosate and the physiological and neurological disorders they lead to such as autism and Alzheimer’s as well as obesity, diabetes, liver damage, cancer and cardiac problems:

Commentary: The kitten that recently adopted us, has grown to the point that it can reach the doorknob when it wants out so we have to act as its valet. I’m thinking, however, I’ll get us one of these robodogs:

The American Empire (AE): For NATO buffs is the following article: NATO’s Real Existential Threat: The Surrender Of Western Values. The author seems not to understand that NATO is an important tool of the projection of US militarism in the same way the Roman empire co-opted other tribes to fight theit peripheral battles.

Climate: Cold temperature and snowfall records continue to fall across the northern hemisphere. Oppenheimer Ranch Project, Ice Age Farmer, and Adapt 2030 are three sites that continue to document these occurrences. And the record heat in Australia reported by the media? That lasted for most of a day followed by record cold which the media didn’t report. The MSM didn’t report snow and hail in Tasmania and parts of northern Africa like Morocco and the Sahara. But keep the faith. The world will still burn up after the next ice age. And if not then, then in a few billion year when the dying sun expands and incinerates the entire inner solar system. And all because of pesky CO2.

Bits and Pieces: A friend asked what do we call the post-millennial generation? This is the snowflake generation and this explains how they have come to be: The Fragile Generation. For the child who grows up in a traditional manner, he will not be facing a level playing field in the adult world – he will tower above it in ability. If he (or she in order not to be too gender incorrect) is at all self-motivated he will be worldly successful.

Trump may only have to sit back and wait: GOP Reps Seek Criminal Prosecution Of FBI, DOJ Officials For “Full Throated” Illegal Misconduct And “Treason”. Is this going anywhere?

Fresh on having the lyrics to O Canada once again revised to make them more politically correct, comes further evidence of where Trudeau is going: “We Say Peoplekind”: Trudeau Mansplains To Woman That “Mankind” Is Not An Appropriate Term.

Here is a new essay on Syria by our friend Paul Merkley: SYRIA’S FUTURE.

There is a video of the wolves of Chernobyl which along with the video on the wolves of Yellowstone Here’s one on the dogs of Chernobyl. They are all encouraging about nature’s ability to adapt to disaster: Meet the Dogs of Chernobyl – the Abandoned Pets That Formed Their Own Canine Community.

The media, in the following article, would include the CBC and CTV, neither of which is capable of unbiased reporting: WSJ Asks: Why Is The Media Ignoring The Real Bombshell FISA Memo?.

Commentary: Closing off 2017. War has not broken out either in North Korea or the Middle East. However, the issues in these two areas remain unresolved. Iran seems to be the likely flash point.

I’ve been following the global cooling issue coincidentally with the grand solar minimum (GSM) and am convinced that it will be the most important event of the next decade next to a global war and a global economic collapse. In fact the three events have strong co-dependencies.

I am now publishing Bits and Pieces 3 or 4 times a month. This will continue but my focus is shifting to the GSM and its implications.

WWIII: The following article provides a summary of the multinational military activity in the wars in Iraq and Syria. The accuracy of the numbers may be questioned but the key point is that this is a global war. It is notable that Canada’s role has been omitted: World War in Syria and Iraq (MAP).
