Angels and Adama ~ galaxygirl~ 12/8/2019

We are the angels. We see humanity struggling with these upheavals of change. We would like to remind you that you are lovingly surrounded in every moment by many helping hands, should you allow. We are always here for you. The close calls, the near misses, we are always working to ensure your success. Won’t you talk with us? For we are all around you.

We are the angels. We are hard workers behind the scenes, carrying the light, as are you, ground team. Many of you feel under appreciated. Appreciation for the tasks that you do behind the scenes in secret, in the dark as you illuminate it – it is unimaginable to you the amount of impact that you are having. It is in the stillness that this is best achieved. We see that more and more of you are discovering your own inner still point where the Christ child lives. It is imperative that you seek the stillness more regularly, more fully, for that and that alone will assist you in the coming days ahead.

We are the angels. We love you so much. We send you our tremendous appreciation for the love and joy that you are sharing. Many of you are processing old wounds for yourselves and for the collective. For this we thank you. And we remind you that you are never alone. You are continuously surrounded by the light of the Christ, of the all. You are always surrounded by us, as we continuously collaborate with Source to best assist you. But you must be open and think to ask. Think to pray, think to be still and feel the difference. The solstice is approaching, the still point, the balance. Find your own inner balance and be still, be comforted. The the greatest gift that you can give yourselves is the forethought of inner peace, of the inner stillness.

We are the angels. We surround you with a warm blanket of love this day. Be at peace and be comforted. Be assured that you are making an enormous difference and you have the full support of the angelic realm. We send light and love into your being now. Refreshing, uplifting energies into your form.

Greetings, this is Adama of Telos. Greetings, family of the light. Your inner earth family within Telos sends you love and encouragement this day. We can feel the inner shift of Gaia and we have felt her shift quite a lot lately, which tells us that our reunions are close at hand, and this gives us great cause for excitement and thanksgiving. We know you are weary. The amount of light that you, light team, have grounded lately, is staggering, unprecedented. Much more is to come, but you have help, should you allow it. Many of you have felt alone. This need not be the case, for you are surrounded by family and friends sending your their etheric and galactic support. You are not alone.

I am Adama of Telos. Many of you visit here in your dream state, enjoying the beauty of the inner earth cities and sanctuaries. Gaia is to be a paradise once again. She has remained so in the inner plane. The surface world will be restored once again. We see that the ground team needs to be restored a bit, for these shifts have taken a toll on your morale. Friends, you are not alone. I place my hand over your heart space. (I am seeing crystal light that is alive and spinning, singing). I am placing my hand in your heart, my child. I am placing my other hand on your forehead. (I am feeling this crystal light move inside my head, spinning the energies. The crystal spaces in my head and heart become merged. My body is now filled with this sparkling crystal light). The days of the lone warrior are past. The days of reunification with tribes of days gone by is at hand. Many of you are rejoining us as you slumber, for joy and for celebration. The celebration will soon be made manifest in your surface realm. But carry this celebration in your heart space, carry this inner peace with you and it will be more easily made manifest.

I am Adama of Telos, high priest and big brother. We are your caring family. Gaia’s surface and inner realms will be pristine and beautiful once again. But this pristine beauty may begin within your heart spaces now. See, I have given you a little energetic upgrade. These energies of joy and peace are all around. Allow this higher light, this 5 and 6 D light to rework your inner thought patterns that need to ascend as well. See the word “isolation” and put it in front of you in an orb. Fill the orb with crystal light and see the word change to “community.” Your inner earth community surrounds you with light. You are no longer alone, you need not feel that you are.

I am Adama of Telos. Our healing chambers are always open to serve the surface team of light. You are always welcome within our gates. Only the pure of heart may enter. Many of us (citizens of Telos) are timidly venturing out for a view and experience of the surface world. It is not a place for the faint of heart. We hold you in high respect and honor for the cleansing work, for the bravery that you continually show by holding the light so admirably. Be encouraged and be comforted. This inner light work that we have done together is encoded with Nova Gaia energies with the frequency of Telos. It will be easier for you to connect with your friends and family here or there, whichever makes most sense to you. But know that here or there is irrelevant for it is all within you. Nova Gaia is a state of being, as well as a place. We dwell in this still point of being and you will be carrying with you this state of being, state of mind, state of the heart, wherever you go and you will be a calling card, a beacon of the higher ascended realms wherever you go. Do not concern yourselves with lower vibrational realms and realities. Other combat teams are dealing with this. They have their assignments and are doing it excellently. Your assignment, ground team, is to have the faith and the fortitude and the endurance enough to keep going, to keep loving, to keep shining your light. And in so doing you are bridging realities, weaving them together vibrationally.

I am Adama of Telos, high priest. Many of you have been priests and priestesses in days gone by. We weave the light with you. Just as Inner Earth is weaving its energies with outer earth so your inner realities must be woven with your outer realm so that your inner peace is made manifest on the outer. Live your days within this oasis of peace and be comforted. All is most well. I am Adama of Telos. I kiss your forehead with brotherly affection, igniting the codes further. Feel the love that is available for you, ground team. Feel the light spin within. You are not alone. Feel this call of Inner Earth, carrying you home, and realize it is within you and has been in away all along. Your soul, the voice of your soul is calling you home. This has been a brutal road for many. The experiment fell too far and too many outside interferences were involved. They are being removed. All is in good hands. Ground the light. Ground the peace. Be the joy of heaven within the form of the human body and rewrite your future. For the future is not what you have been told it would be. (I am seeing collapsing old timelines of armageddons, of traumatic ends). These are no more. The crystal heart of Nova Gaia pulses with life, with hope, with trust, with new beginnings. She is trusting in Mother and Father. Will you? I am Adama of Telos. Until we meet again. Peace, brothers and sisters. Peace.

Recent Benjamin Fulfort Weekly Reports

China winning as West remains paralyzed by bloodline vs. Illuminati battle

The Western world remains paralyzed by an elite civil war while China keeps getting stronger and stronger and is heading towards absolute dominance.  Unless this civil war is ended, the Western G6 alliance (G7 minus Japan) will lose the ability to control the United Nations and the direction humanity chooses for its future.

The civil war was on full display at last week as U.S. President Donald Trump “didn’t fare too well at the NATO meetings in London and left abruptly after the Canadian premier was overheard being disrespectful to him,” according to European royal family sources.  The “school playground type of tricks” masked the fact that the real topic of the summit was “the funding of the U.S. corporate government.”  The source also said, “Trump has been a disappointment, I think.  His job was to wind down and reboot.”

Trump has been recently given a couple of reminders that he is dealing with bigger issues than keeping a U.S. stock market bubble inflated long enough for him to be re-elected in 2020.  One was a shutdown of Washington, D.C. air defenses that left him totally vulnerable to a missile or air attack.  The other was when he was hit with a psychotronic weapon on November 21st.
https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/31253/heres-what-really-happened-with-that-washington-d-c-air-defense-scare

https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/1208818/Donald-Trump-latest-health-news-U.S.-President-jon-voight-national-medal-of-arts-Twitter

The Gnostic Illuminati military and intelligence types behind Trump, for their part, have been lashing out strongly against the British royals, especially after the failed NATO summit.  Pentagon sources say, “The royal family saga is far from over, as Trump denies knowing and even Canada’s military struggles with Prince Andrew’s three Colonels-in-Chief titles.”

Then there was the undeniable satanic hand sign made by Prince Harry when he met Melania Trump on December 6th.

Sources close to Harry say the sign meant …

Trump lashes out in all directions as world tension escalates to dangerous levels

World tensions are reaching a dangerous boiling point as an increasingly isolated U.S. President Donald Trump lashes out in all directions.  It looks like Trump is trying to rally U.S. military support for war against Denmark and Mexico in an attempt to seize resources to finance the U.S. corporate government, multiple sources agree.  A major financial sabotage campaign is also underway against China, highlighted by the U.S. dollar bond default of a company with revenue of the satanic number of $66.6 billion.  Meanwhile, Trump backers are lashing out against the British royal family.  Remember, Trump has already labeled the EU “a foe.”

All of this activity is related to the fact that, despite stealing the Japanese people’s pension money, the U.S. corporation still does not have a clear path to meeting its January 31, 2020 payment deadline.  It is interesting to note in this context that Brexit is now scheduled for January 31, 2020.

Let’s start by looking at the situation with Mexico.  The U.S. has now deployed three aircraft carrier groups around that country as “the U.S. military prepares to attack Mexican drug cartels, who may be armed and trained by Mossad,” Pentagon sources say.
http://www.gonavy.jp/CVLocation.html

While we can independently confirm that some of the drug cartel fighters have indeed been trained by Mossad, we also know that this war on Mexico is really about stealing Mexican oil, silver, and other resources to finance the U.S. corporation.  That’s why the Mexican military has publicly come out in support of President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (Amlo).
https://news.yahoo.com/mexicos-top-military-brass-offer-200001882.html

Russia has also deployed nuclear-armed submarines around the U.S. coastline, and Russian President Vladimir Putin publicly declared earlier this year that his country is ready for another Cuban missile crisis.
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-russia-putin/putin-to-u-s-im-ready-for-another-cuban-missile-crisis-if-you-want-one-idUSKCN1QA1A3

What this means is that Trump is going to have to back down, because the U.S. military is not going to start a nuclear war to steal resources to support a foreign-owned UNITED STATES CORPORATION.

Next let us look at Denmark.  Here, Lars Findsen, head of the Danish Defence Intelligence Service, said Greenland was now a top security issue for Denmark because a “power game is unfolding” between the U.S. and other global powers in the Arctic.  Trump cancelled an August state visit to Denmark and called their Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen “nasty” after she refused to sell Greenland to the U.S.
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-50598898

These events follow the installation of a Nazi government in Brazil and a seizure of lithium resources in Bolivia by U.S. Special Forces.  Clearly the Trump administration is trying to turn the American continent into a fortress.  Unfortunately, Canada (the British Empire), Denmark (the EU), and Mexico (supported by Russia and the Vatican) stand in his way.

Now let us turn to the economic attack against China, where CIA sources in Asia promise, “China’s economy and financial system will most likely implode within …

Benjamin Fulford talks Gold, Silver, JFK and financial reset with Robert David Steele, with Notes

This 30-minute interview with Robert David Steele provides an easy-to-understand overview of exactly who and what the deep state is made of.


Hi Ben,

I thought your interview with Robert David Steele was so good it should make the history books as “The Steele-Fulford Level Set.”

I had to take notes.  Here they are if they can be useful to you.

Best & cheers,
—SH


Robert David Steele (RDS) sets the stage, asks for Fulford’s full introduction, and Fulford complies.  RDS cites Fulford’s introduction of a Japanese princess to RDS, and then RDS breaking the Korea Peninsula denuclearization and reunification story because of this.  RDS is called a lunatic until the story breaks more widely.  RDS knows that many Fulford stories are similar—considered crazy until widely acknowledged.  RDS then asks for a broad, global stage-setting of the historical players.

  1. Gnostic Illuminati
    1. Started the American, French, and Russian revolutions.  Starting a world revolution this time.
    2. Founded by Pythagoras.
    3. Recruits 6,000 geniuses per generation.
    4. A discloser to Fulford (one of the geniuses) was scouted in by Bobby Fisher, the chess champion.
  2. P2 Freemasons
    1. Created Communism.
    2. Leo Zagami told Fulford of the P2 Freemasons.
    3. Descendants of Caesars who want a NWO empire under them.
    4. They wear black masks and give orders to the Vatican and others.
    5. They foretold of the firing of Pope Benedict and then made it happen, so they’re real.
  3. Scottish Rite Freemasons
    1. Basically, the British Empire, #2 “on the totem pole” after the P2 Freemasons/Caesars in the West.  Fulford feels they are, from his interactions, basically decent people.
    2. They are pushers of global warming to support underdeveloped countries to avoid killing large part of the world’s population.  Bush and his people want population culling.
  4. RDS recounts Fulford introducing RDS to a top Chinese Freemason.
    1. RDS asks about the power structure in Asia and the differences in Freemasons in the West versus the East.
      1. Fulford:  The Chinese royal families chose Communism as the best way to modernize China.
      2. There are two power blocks inside China, and three outside.
        1. Communist Youth League is Chinese meritocracy/bureaucracy;  the people working their way up that pyramid.
        2. Royal families that stay in the background and control finances.
        3. Third Asian block, having similar languages:  “The horse people”—Mongolians, Japanese, Koreans—with a 1,000-year history of cooperation and adversity with Chinese.  Fulford: “The difference between the Chinese and these people is BIGGER than between the Chinese and the English.”
        4. Chinese diaspora in Southeast Asia:  Former members of defeated dynasties who fled with riches/gold to Southeast Asia and Taiwan.  Very influential among overseas Chinese.
        5. Russia
          1. The Bolshevik Revolution was NOT a Russian revolution but rather was created by Communist Jews.
          2. Upon the dissolution of the USSR, 300 top Russians were bribed to agree to the fall of the Soviet Union and became Russia’s oligarchs living overseas, as in London, etc.  Many top Russian Jews migrated to Israel.
          3. The traditional Orthodox Christian Church of Russia and the Secret Service allied to the Czar were assassinated (~200 people) but took back power.  Today the Russian Orthodox Church is the main power in Russia.  Fulford feels these are good people.  Russia’s living standard doubled within one year of Russia taking back its power.  The Church/Putin stopped the looting of monies going overseas by oligarchs, which is why they vilify Putin.  Fulford speculates that the USA similarly could double its living standard within a year by the removal of the Khazazian Jewish owners of the Federal Reserve Board.  RDS agrees.
  5. RDS references returning to the topics of Asia, gold, and the JFK Memorial Green Hilton Agreement.
  6. RDS mentions the Russian Orthodox Church sweeping into the Byzantine empire as the segue to the Middle East of today and Russia’s proactive stance in Middle East and avoided the topic of the Aga Khan.
    1. Fulford:  “I forgot to mention the Zionists!”  Big laugh.  RDS: “Qanon says ‘we leave the Zionists for last,’” referencing a Qanon post.
      1. Fulford recounts the Turkish Jew founder, Sabbatai Zevi (~1648) with ~1 million followers, acts to carry out prophecies in the Bible, create an artificial Armageddon, and rule the world from Jerusalem.
      2. The Chabads think that after war between Gog and Magog with 90% of humans eliminated, every Jew will receive 2,800 slaves and Jews will rule the world.  The Zionists are a powerful minority behind the Middle Eastern troubles.
    2. Middle East:  Historically, there are three main groups:
      1. Persians/Iranians—the Shia branch of Islam.
      2. Turks/Byzantine heirs—different languages, but variants are still spoken in 17 countries, as testimony of the enduring legacy of the Byzantine empire.
      3. Arabs/Saudi Arabia, Egypt—the Sunni branch of Islam.
      4. Aga Khan—a descendent of Mohammed and heir to the Assassins (who are still around and quite active).  Influential in the Shia world and British high society, maintains a low profile and controls Pakistan.  Fulford:  His heart seems to be in the right place.
    3. Gold
      1. RDS mentions the Seagraves’ book Gold Warriors:  America’s Secret Recovery of Yamashita’s Gold.  Both of the Seagraves were friends of RDS.  The book is about the capture of Japanese gold in Philippines, which became the Black Lily Fund, which funded U.S. covert operations worldwide, morphing into the Black Eagle Fund which funded the Brennan/Tenet/Krongard economic war on Russia (RDS: “for which Putin had every right to nuke us”).
      2. RDS segues to the Global Currency Reset (GCR), as indigenous chiefs and elders seem to be coming back into their own.
      3. Fulford: “That’s a big question!”
        1. Since Roman times, Asia has been sending silk/ceramics/spices to the West, being paid in gold and silver, resulting in 85% of world’s gold being in Asia.
        2. Asians set up the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) to help Germany help pay for their Versailles Treaty reparations after WWI.
        3. Asians were promised a world governance with families in the background, but needed WWII to make that happen.  The winning powers broke their promise and cut off gold to Asia, with no Marshall Plan for Asia/Africa, only a plan for the countries they controlled in Europe.
        4. Kennedy promised a Marshall Plan for the world using Asian/Indonesian gold for backing.  Kennedy was assassinated and the U.S. ran out of gold in the early 1970’s.  Nixon went off the gold standard and the petrodollar was the scheme created, which is now failing.
        5. 9/11 was related to a secret court case that the U.S. lost.  The U.S. had to pay back gold taken from China in the 1938 deal.  The U.S. couldn’t pay, so the evidence was blown up in 9/11.  The War On Terror started, with a fascist coup d’état in the form of the U.S. Patriot Act, when the U.S. became a Nazi terrorist state.  The good guys wake up and find that the U.S. establishment are the bad guys.
        6. In 2008, with the U.S. teetering on bankruptcy, they promise a black president and “things will be different” to get money from Asians.  Barry Soetoro a.k.a. Barack Obama was just a Bush-agenda house slave.  Asian support was withdrawn.  Obama/2008:  750 tons of gold were taken from Yohannes Riyadi, and sold 1,000+ times to create $23 trillion of gold-backed bonds.  This is what’s pumping up the global stock markets, 1,000x leveraged gold.  The markets must return to reality.
        7. The Trump presidency is backed by Gnostic and military-industrial persons, whose hearts are in the right place.
      4. RDS asks about a possible Xi Jinping/Putin/Trump deal to keep markets from collapsing to get Trump re-elected.  Fulford:  It’s easy to say it’s a bubble, but difficult to say when it will burst.  The Chinese Elders suggest a collapse will occur before the U.S. elections and Trump will have to negotiate a bankruptcy.
        1. The CIA and Indonesia contacted Fulford before this interview specifically to ask Fulford to bring up President Kennedy’s Executive Order 11110 and state that it “is still there,” providing for stroke-of-the-pen gold-backed U.S. currency “and leave the Fed mess to the Khazazian mafia.”  Re-enactment of that Executive Order is their recommendation.  This would bring Asian backing.
        2. RDS points to Wayne Jett’s book The Fruits of Graft:  Great Depressions Then and Now,  stating that the Fed debt is on the private banks, not the U.S. citizen.  RDS says “we could nationalize the Fed, and NOT nationalize those Federal Reserve dollars….”
      5. RDS asks Fulford about the Chinese view.
        1. Fulford:
          1. Hillary Clinton had promised China “The United States of China,” handing over control of Japan and Asian to the Chinese and “that’s why they gave her lots of money and were surprised when she was not elected.”
          2. Trump could be better for Chinese, i.e. “with a whole new set-up for the planet, and a fair role for Asia.”
        2. In the 1980’s Fulford was studying the successful Japanese economic double-digit growth as a student.  Japan’s success was being dismantled by U.S.  The U.S. assassinated prime ministers, the U.S. shot down Japan Airlines Flight 123 (600 people), along with other disruptions.  The Japanese system had an economic planning agency at its heart—a hybrid between Communism and Capitalism where the government creates a framework and the private sector fills that framework.  Singapore—the third richest place on earth—and China both copied and improved upon this model.  Qatar and Luxembourg were cited as shills;  Singapore earns money through work and real economic development.  Fulford has been recommending such a system for a Western re-boot.
        3. Fulford cites the bankruptcy of the U.S. CORPORATION owned by “gangsters and satan-worshiping bankers” (many people have no clue as to this U.S. CORPORATION, the Act of 1871, and how USA/America has been actually ruled) as not terrible but actually “removing the nightmare.”  He makes an analogy to the fall of the USSR, and that “that would be a great thing for everybody.” This is a military fight;  we (the good guys) are winning, and they (the cabal) have hired mercenaries to stay in power.  Victory is only a matter of time.  RDS cites the parallel between a planning agency to his open source intelligence and open source engineering.
  7. 5-minute wrap-up
    1. RDS:  Will Palestine be returned to the Palestinians per Kissinger’s suggestion?
    2. Fulford:  Israel is militarily doomed.  The U.S. will no longer fight wars for Israel.  Israel will have no choice but to sue for a real peace and will end up in the protection of Turkey, Iran, and Egypt.
    3. RDS:  “I’ve distinguished between Zionism and Judaism for a long time.  The Supreme Leader of Iran recently made the same distinction, calling for the end of Israel.  Will Trump visit Iran before the election and make “the deal” with Iran’s Supreme Leader?
    4. Fulford:  The Jews need to realize that the Holocaust was caused by Zionists.  It was manufactured to fit the Gog vs. Magog Biblical battle and to drive the European Jews into Israel.  “If they (the Jews) don’t understand that, they’re never going to be free.”  The people of Israel will be allowed to live and prosper in peace with autonomy.  They just need to get rid of these fanatics.
    5. RDS interjects:  “I agree… I follow Rabbi Michael Lerner among many others.  It’s clear that many Jews now realize that Zionism is antithetical to Judaism.”
  8. RDS:  With 2 minutes left, what would you say to Donald Trump if you had his ear for two minutes alone in an elevator?
    1. Fulford:
      1. “Make a deal with the Asians for a Future Planning Agency for the planet;
      2. “Start multi-trillion-dollar projects to:
        1. End poverty;
        2. Stop environmental destruction (clean up the planet);  and
        3. Expand the human race into the universe.
      3. “That’s all I’d need to say.”
    2. RDS closes very graciously and says he’s looking forward to another visit with Fulford in Japan, praising Ben as an amazing human being.

New Silk Roads in Action

 

New Silk Roads in Action at China-Kazakh Border

Central Asia, between China and Europe, is bustling

By Pepe Escobar
Global Research

Click to read this article in your browser.

We are cruising on a pristine, 380 km-long four-lane superhighway from Almaty to Khorgos – finished in 2016 for $1.25 billion, 85% of the cost covered by a World Bank loan. And then, suddenly, riding parallel to us, there’s the real superstar of New Silk Road connectivity.

Meet Yuxinou, the container cargo train plying back and forth along the 11,000 km-long railway corridor connecting Chongqin in Sichuan province via Xinjiang and Kazakhstan to Russia, Belarus, Poland and finally Duisburg in the Ruhr valley. And all that in a mere 13 days.

Along the way, the Yuxinou stops in, among other places, Almaty, Bishkek, Tashkent, Tehran, Istanbul, Moscow and Rotterdam: a who’s who of Eurasian cities. It carries  laptops, BMWs, spare parts, clothes, machinery, international post packages, chemical products, medicine and medical instruments – all manner of goods, made in China and made in Europe. And all that for only 20% of air freight cost.

This operation platform is called Yuxinou (Chongqing) Logistics Co., Ltd., a joint venture among the railways of China, Russia, Kazakhstan and Germany and the Chongqin municipal government, which is quite proud of its “seamless integration of multinational railway logistics” – complete with a fast custom clearance procedure called “single declaration and inspection on entire journey.”

The key Yuxinou crossroads is the intersection between Alashankou, on the Chinese side of the Kasakh border, and Khorgos, a special economic zone in Kazakhstan. The whole project may be in its infancy. After all, the Belt and Road Initiative is still, according to Beijing’s detailed timetable, in the planning stage.

So Khorgos may still be far from metastasizing into the new Dubai, as the hype claimed a few years ago. But watching Khorgos in action is a fascinating experience, unparalleled in its usefulness for gauging Belt & Road’s potential. As much as the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, the northern part of which I traveled a year ago, this is one of the jewels in Belt & Road’s crown.

Hitting the malls

There are actually three places to take care of border-crossing buisness at Khorgos. I arrived, via the superhighway, at the exclusive crossing for container trucks. Then I visited the border crossing used by Kazakhs and Central Asians from everywhere, leading to a collection of duty-free mega shopping malls officially called the International Center for Boundary Cooperation (ICBC). Then there’s the train station in Altynkol, where Yoxinou stops as do the Urumqi-Almaty cargo/passenger trains. The actual SEZ – many buildings still under construction – is in the periphery of Khorgos.

The ICBC – 5.3 square kilometers housing five multi-story shopping malls with over 2,000 shops – is a sort of neutral no man’s land. If you’re Kazakh or Chinese, no visa is needed. But people from all over Central Asia also come – by bus, eager to take advantage of unlimited Made in China bargains.

The procedure is quite straightforward. Customers arrive usually in the early morning at a huge bus parking lot. They walk a short distance toward the very modern Kazakh customs building (on the day I visited, because of the bitter cold, it was virtually empty). Then they take a shuttle bus to the Chinese border, cross it with little or no bureaucracy (although the Central Asians, other than Kazakhs, do need visas), and hit the malls.

They come back at the end of the day fully loaded – excellent business for an army of packagers and porters. Then they board their buses returning to all points Kazakhstan and other “stans”. On busy days, especially in summer, there may be as many as 8,000 shoppers hitting the ICBC.

China’s top connectivity access to Central Asia and West Asia markets, and farther on down the road to Europe, is via Kazakhstan, which counts China as its second-largest trading partner. At the same time, it’s essential to consider that Khorgos is smack on the Xinjiang border, which implies maximum Chinese security alert.

Yet there’s nothing Orwellian about Khorgos. The CCP apparatus in far away Urumqi seems to understand pragmatically that the whole deal is all about a mega-mall, and not conducive to Uighur separatist shenanigans. And on top of it the really heavy business transits via Yuxinou. In the near future, it’s bound to evolve towards high-speed rail.

In terms of road traffic, container trucks conduct a hefty business at Khorgos – certainly more substantial than in other border crossings I visited, in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.

There are two China-Kyrgyzstan border crossings. The more established one, at Torugart, leads straight to the capital Bishkek and then Tashkent in Uzbekistan. The road was repaved with loans from the Export-Import Bank of China and the Asian Development Bank.

The ADB also provided the financing for an alternative route from Bishkek to Osh, along with an $850 million loan from the EXIM Bank. This road is quite something, cutting through Kyrgyz mountains and passes and eliminating at least 220 km of travel in comparison with the ancient road. China Road and Bridge Cooperation was in charge of the construction, including a 3.3 km-long tunnel.

But it’s still a tricky road; on the last mountain pass before the final dash towards Bishkek, my driver Alex and I spent hours negotiating a cornucopia of lorries gone sideways in the snow and a myriad of clueless drivers stuck without tire chains.

China & the ‘stans

The other China-Kyrgyz border crossing is at the Irkeshtam pass, It used to be the main southern branch of the ancient Silk Road, coming straight from Kashgar. The road was resurfaced in 2013, adding to a connectivity integration net linking Kyrgyzstan, Xinjiang and the Karakoram Highway in Pakistan. I crossed a steady convoy of Chinese container trucks coming from Irkeshtam.

There’s only one China-Tajikistan border crossing, at the top of the Kulma pass, 4,363 meters high. The actual Chinese border is 14 km away from the Tajik border, very close to the Karakoram Highway: another instance of close connectivity. This road was opened in 2004 and also follows the ancient Silk Road.

The whole road between the Kulma pass and the Tajik capital Dushanbe, which includes the legendary Pamir Highway (the subject of an upcoming two-part special), is still a (slow) work in progress. It’s funded by a $254 million loan from China’s EXIM Bank with work by China Road and Bridge Cooperation.

Just outside Dushanbe, as I was leaving for the Pamir Highway, I saw a multi-level road intersection built with a loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and another from the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank.

What I saw was in fact history in the making; this was the AIIB’s first-ever development loan. There will be many others, as the connectivity between China and its neighboring ‘stans hits overdrive.

NATO needed for what?

NATO’s Deep Political and Legal Crisis: Madness and Irrationality

The 2 Percent Goal as Defence Illiteracy

68

Political

NATO’s London Summit on December 3 and 4, 2019 displays the deep political crisis of the 70-year-old alliance: Only a dinner and a short meeting, no statement to be issued, quarrels among the leading military members, accusations, substantial differences on Syria and many other issues, the deepest-ever Transatlantic conflict and the usual issues of burden-sharing.

Legal

But the political dimension of NATO’s crisis is only one. There is also a legal crisis. You’ll recognize it if you care to read the NATO Treaty text – something academic and media people don’t generally seem to have done. They would then have noticed that the Alliance of 2019 consistently operates outside – indeed in violation of – its own goals, purposes and values. For instance, the UN Charter which should be NATO’s guideline has been violated on a permanent basis for decades – such as in its out-of-area bombings of Yugoslavia with no UN mandate.

The contempt shown for international law in general and the UN Charter in particular is an integral part of NATO’s existential crisis.

Moral

And, third, there is a moral dimension to NATO’s crisis. Of course, no one talks about it.

It’s the simple fact that no war that individual NATO members states or NATO as NATO have engaged in can be termed anything but predictable fiascos when judged by the alliance’s own stated goals and criteria – just think of Vietnam, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria… all crystal clear moral catastrophes causing unspeakable suffering, death and destruction to millions upon millions while achieving none of the stated goals that were set to explain and legitimize these wars such as creating democracy, respecting human rights, liberating women or stopping alleged genocides.

By now, the world should have been told enough lies about NATO’s benevolent motives, policies and actions for taxpaying citizens to mobilize resistance to it.

These three crises can all be related to the response of the Western world to the demise of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact 30 years ago – i.e. to the choice to expand NATO and exploiting the weakness of Russia.

Intellectual

The last and perhaps most-hidden-of-all crisis is NATO’s intellectual crisis.

It’s now an alliance that operates in a kind of echo chamber with little, or no, sense of the realities of the world. It’s there for its own sake. When you listen to its Secretary-General – not only Stoltenberg but Fogh Rasmussen and earlier ones – you sense a level of creativity and intellectualism that reminds you of leaders who also happened to be Secretaries-General such as, say, Leonid Breznev.

Irrespective of some little objective analysis of the situation, NATO sings only one tune: There are new threats all the time, we must arm more, we need new and better weapons and we must, therefore, increase military expenditures.

And how is it legitimized?

By uttering mantras. No matter what NATO and its members choose to do, it is simply stated without a trace of argument or documentation that more money will increase four things: Defence, security, stability and peace. And be good for basic Western values such as freedom, democracy and peace.

How come – the small boy watching the Emperor would ask – that no matter what NATO has done the last 70 years, it is still maintaining that it needs more to create that defence, security, stability and peace?

What’s wrong with a system that keeps applying the same medicine decade after decade and gets further and further from achieving the stipulated goal?

Military expenditures in general – no balance and no reality check

NATO’s main enemy is supposed to be Russia. It doesn’t matter that Russia’s military expenditures are about 6-7 % of NATO’s total expenditures (29 countries). It doesn’t matter that NATO’s technical quality is superior. It doesn’t matter that Russia’s military expenditures are falling year-by-year – decreased to US $ 64 billion in 2018 from US $ 66 billion in 2017. It doesn’t matter that Russia’s military expenditures averaged only US $ 45 billion from 1992 until 2018.

Only? Yes, NATO’s total budget is US $ 1036 billion of which the US stands for 649.

And it doesn’t matter that the old Warsaw Pact budget were some 65-75% of NATO’s during the first Cold War and we were told back then that some kind of balance was good for stability and peace. Today we are told that the more superiority NATO has, the better it is for world peace.

In short, reality doesn’t matter anymore to NATO.

The 2 per cent goal

And this is where the 2 per cent of GNP comes into play and reveals just how deep NATO’s crisis is. But have you seen anybody questioning this 2 per cent goal as the philosophical nonsense – or forgery – it is?

It resembles the Theatre of the Absurd to tie military expenditures to the economic performance of a country. Imagine a person sets off 10 % of her/his income to buy food. Suddenly he or she wins in a lottery or is catapulted into a job that yields a 5 times higher income. Should that person then also begin to eat 5 times more?

The 2 per cent goal is an absurdity, an indicator of defence illiteracy. People who take it serious – in politics, media and academia – obviously have never read a basic book about theories and concepts in the field of defence and security. Or about how one makes a professional analysis of what threatens a country.

If military expenditures are meant to secure a country’s future, do the threats that this country faces also vary according to its own GNP? Of course not! It is a bizarre assumption.

Decent knowledge-based defence policies should be decided on the basis of a comprehensive analysis of threats and contain dimensions such as:

What threatens our nation, our society now and along various time horizons? Which threats that we can imagine are so big that we can do nothing to meet them? Which are such that it is meaningful to set off this or that sum to feel reasonably safe? What threats seem so small or unlikely that we can ignore them?

What threats are most likely to go from latent to manifest? How do we prioritize among scarce resources when we have other needs and goals than feeling secure such as developing our economy, education, health, culture, etc.?

And, most importantly, two more consideration: What threats can be met with predominantly military means and which require basically civilian means? And how do we act today to prevent the perceived threats from becoming a reality that we have to face – how do we, within our means, prevent violence and reduce risks as much as possible.

All these questions should be possible to answer with the new mantra: Just always give the military 2 per cent of the GNP and everything will be fine?

The MIMAC

MIMAC is the Military-Industrial-Media-Academic Complex – the vested interests of small elites in symbiosis with governments which run on and benefit from bizarre standards like the 2 per cent goal.

One purpose of that goal is to make serious, empirical and relevant threat analysis irrelevant. It’s a perpetuum mobile – a way of securing that MIMAC always gets what it needs, no matter what the consequences are for thosee who pay it all, the citizens and their tax money.

Imagine that Russia disappeared from the earth tomorrow. And NATO would quickly find some other “enemy” by which to legitimate that it anyhow needs also 2 per cent of your BNP in the future. At least!

NATO Titanic

Its Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg two days ago announced this mind-boggling news, swallowed by media as the most natural thing of the world in need of no questions – read it on NATO’s homepage:

“Ahead of the meeting of NATO Leaders in London to mark the Alliance’s 70th anniversary, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Friday (29 November 2019) gave details of large increases in Allied defence spending. Mr. Stoltenberg announced that in 2019 defence spending across European Allies and Canada increased in real terms by 4.6 %, making this the fifth consecutive year of growth. He also revealed that by the end of 2020, those Allies will have invested $130 billion more since 2016. Based on the latest estimates, the accumulated increase in defence spending by the end of 2024 will be $400 billion. Mr. Stoltenberg said: “This is unprecedented progress and it is making NATO stronger.’ “

Read it carefully: NATO’s military expenditure increase 2016-2020 is US $ 130 billion – that is twice as much as Russia’s total annual budget!

There is only two words for it: Madness and irrationality. Madness in and of itself and madness when seen in the perspective of all the other problems humanity must urgently find funds to solve.

The total regular UN budget for the year 2016-17 was US $ 5.6 billion. That is, NATO countries spend 185 times more on the military than all the world does on the UN.

Do you find that sane and in accordance with the problems humanity need to solve? This author does not. I stand by the word madness. There exists no rational academic, empirical analysis and no theory that can explain NATO’s military expenditures as rational or in service of the common good of humankind.

*

The world’s strongest, nuclear alliance is a castle built on intellectual sinking sand. It’s a political, moral, legal and intellectual Titanic.

The only armament NATO needs is legal, moral and intellectual. And unless it now moves in this direction, it deserves to be dissolved.

The inverse proportion between its destructive power and its moral-intellectual power is – beyond any doubt – the largest single threat to humanity’s future.

This challenge is at least as serious and as urgent as is climate change.

Perhaps it is time to stop keeping NATO alive by taxpayers’ money and start a tax boycott in all NATO countries until it is dissolved or at least comes down to – say – one-tenth of its present wasteful military level? Not to speak of its bootprint destruction of the environment….

By Arabi SouriThe inauguration of the Power of Siberia project to transport gas from Russia to China will strengthen Russia’s position as the world’s first gas exporter and boost economic relations between the two countries in an unprecedented way.

Thanks to the US politicians getting busy with their inner fights over who won the presidency and later over who is more corrupt with power in a newly controlled country (Ukraine), the excessive use of sanctions, and the anti-‘free trade’ war, other global superpowers are solidifying their positions and leaping ahead in steady growth. Read more…

Things heat up as Netanyahu indicted, while Trump declares war on the Queen

November 25, 2019
By Benjamin Fulford

The battle for the planet Earth has heated up again as mass-murdering Israeli crime minister Benjamin Netanyahu is indicted, while U.S. President Donald Trump declares war on Queen Elizabeth. Economic and information warfare between the U.S. and China is heating up too, especially over Asian gold and the recent American lithium grab in Bolivia. This is part of the ongoing battle for control of the international financial system raging between the Gnostic Illuminati and an alliance of Asian and European royals.

Let us first look at the battle for control of the Anglo-Saxon world that is flaring between Trump and the British Empire. Here Pentagon sources say, “Trump is declaring war on the Queen not just for spying and trying to remove him from power, but also for pedophilia, murder, and other heinous crimes of the royal family.” British royal family sources are saying that while traditionally they try to keep a stiff upper lip and stay above the fray, they are seriously thinking of hiring lawyers to sue for libel over recent such allegations against them.

The public battle is centered around Prince Andrew and his connections to pedophile blackmailer Jeffrey Epstein and an alleged affair with a 17-year-old girl. “Pedophile Prince Andrew or “randy Andy” is so toxic he has been or is about to be dumped by British Telecom (BT), Standard Chartered, Barclays, Stelios Philantropic Foundation, Bosch, Cisco, Aon, Salesforce, TV Azteca, Inmarsat, KPMG, AstraZeneca, Air Asia, Woodside Petroleum, and even Chinese companies like the Bank of China, the China Construction Bank, JD.com, Tencent, and the Li Ka Shing Foundation,” the Pentagon sources say.

The Queen has also publicly dismissed Andrew from all official royal activities. A European royal close to the Queen said, “I wouldn’t be surprised if the affair seriously damages the Monarchy. The Queen is no longer in supreme control of the Monarchy and Court of Saint James. For insiders it is really very serious now.”

The real battle, of course, is over control of the Anglo-Saxon navies, agree Pentagon and MI6 sources.

Here, “the Trump purge began with the firing of Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer for insubordination, and may be followed by Obama flag officer holdovers, as ‘the Donald’ has won the loyalty of warfighters and special ops forces needed to take down the Zionists and the deep state,” Pentagon sources say.

MI6 sources, for their part, say, “There seems to be a lot of infighting now and attempts to strip the Queen of things like the CIA, U.S. DOD, etc., so this latest fiasco may be an expression of all this.”

In a sign of just how serious a battle this is, the Pentagon sources say that “Since Vice-Admiral Andrew won’t be extradited and may hide behind diplomatic immunity, he may be renditioned by the U.S. military, since the Queen is also Commander in Chief of UK forces.” Needless to say, such an operation would be tantamount to a declaration of war.

The battle to control the U.S. and UK navies is also just one aspect of the bigger battle for control of the financial system. Trump is on the warpath against the European and Asian royals because they are about to stage “a simultaneous recalibration of the Forex and sovereign debt markets on a global level,” according to the European royal.

Trump is attempting to counter this by going after the $29 trillion Indonesian gold fraud carried out by the Federal Reserve Board at the time of the Lehman crisis, according to CIA sources in Asia.

According to the CIA, “During the financial crisis, the New York Fed was given unprecedented powers by the Federal Reserve Board of Governors in Washington, D.C. to create over $29 trillion in electronically engineered money to bail out Wall Street. A significant portion of the $29 trillion went to prop up many of the central banks around the world.”

In his counterattack, “Trump’s soon-to-be-next move is that the Green Hilton Memorial Agreement signed by [then President] John F. Kennedy and President Sukarno at Geneva in November 1963 becomes a reality. Trump can, with the stroke of his pen by Executive Order, reinstate Executive Order 11110 or an amendment thereof, thus allowing the Department of the Treasury to issue the new United States dollars. This may be the reboot of the U.S. dollar, as Trump leaves the debt of the Federal Reserve to be resolved by the actual owners—the Khazarian Zionist cabal,” the CIA says.

The European royal commented that “If that is the extent of the received intelligence at the CIA, then we have a long way to go with them. Individual nation-states such as America would obviously be prevented from going it alone because of the inherent interdependence in the whole thing. But the plan is to migrate away from fiat to asset-backed [currency]. That part is correct, yes.”

Trump, meanwhile, is also attacking Wall Street, according to the Pentagon sources. “After the failed IPOs of WeWork, Lyft, and Uber, greedy Wall Street is unable to make much money from the pump-and-dump Aramco IPO, as their top dogs like JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs face DOJ criminal enterprise investigations along with Boeing, General Electric, and other corporate miscreants,” the sources say.

Saudi Aramco, of course, is key to the support of the Rockefeller petrodollar. On this front, the Pentagon sources note, “The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, the Russian oil company Lukoil, and the Malaysian national oil company Petronas all say no to Aramco, leading other pensions like the Japan Pension Investment Fund and state-owned oil companies like Rosneft, PetroChina, Sinopec, Gazprom, Petrobras, and Pertamina to follow.”

Trump has also seized Japan’s $1.5 trillion national pension fund to keep the U.S. government afloat, according to CIA sources in Asia. That’s why the fund stopped disclosing how it allocated its assets for the fiscal quarter ending in September—that is, at the time the U.S. government needed money to pay its bills.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-japan-gpif/japans-gpif-reports-167-billion-second-quarter-profit-gives-fewer-details-while-deciding-new-portfolio-idUSKBN1XB3NY

“Where is the real money that all the Japanese worked for all these years? When the market crashes, as it is very close to doing, there go all the computer entries. I presume it is nearly the same with all government pension funds. The game is about over,” is how the CIA source explained the situation.

The other thing the Trump forces are doing is physically detaining and killing, or else imprisoning political enemies. That’s why, as far as we can tell, all recent appearances by Barack Obama, George Soros, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, etc. are computer graphics. It’s getting harder to tell, but for example, if you look at the 1:13 to 1:15 second mark on this video of a recent “TV appearance” by Nancy Pelosi, you can see from her eyes that she is a computer-generated image:

Final showdown with Elders of Zion looms

It’s time to call a spade a spade.  Most of the world’s problems originate with a group known as the Elders of Zion.  This is an undeniable fact and has nothing to do with the Jewish people.  Rather, it’s a group of inbred families who own most of the world’s corporations and have been plotting to murder 90% of humanity and enslave the rest.  That’s why they have spent $6.4 trillion on war and mass murder (according to recent calculations by the Watson Institute) since they orchestrated their 9/11 terror attacks and fascist coup d’état.
https://watson.brown.edu/costsofwar/

This was enough money to end poverty, stop environmental destruction, and launch humanity into the universe.  Instead it was spent on a project to create a Greater Israel from which to rule the survivors of their planned artificial Armageddon.  Let us be clear:  the problem originates with the inbred group of families that control monotheism.

As a reminder, we are ruled by a govern- (control) ment (mind) that uses religion (re-ligare:  to rebind) to bundle us into a fascii (a bundle of sticks), or fascism.  Fascism is also known as “rule by corporations.”  A Swiss study has shown that 737 people control 80% of the world’s transnational corporations.
https://arxiv.org/PS_cache/arxiv/pdf/1107/1107.5728v2.pdf

These people are also known as the Elders of Zion.  They control a system of Babylonian debt slavery through their ownership of most of the world’s central banks.  That’s why their servants, the top 10% of the people, control 93.2% of the world’s financial assets, while the bottom 90% are burdened with 72.4% of the debt.

This system is headed for collapse.  Riots and civil unrest in Algeria, Bolivia, Britain, Chile, Denmark, Ecuador, Egypt, France, Guinea, Haiti, Honduras, Hong Kong, Iran, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Lebanon, Pakistan, and Spain share in common a deep distrust of the ruling elite.  The peasants with pitchforks are at the gates.

Also, as discussed last week, the entire corporate financial system has completely lost touch with reality and no longer functions.  The chart below shows how the stock market and the real economy no longer correlate.
https://www.zerohedge.com/s3/files/inline-images/GDP-Wilshire.png?itok=zCZpD5XK

We would like to add that the GDP numbers are wildly exaggerated and do not reflect income disparity, which means the situation is even far worse than shown in the chart.  Right now, indicators of real economic activity, especially in the United States, the epicenter of this crisis, show that a serious recession has already started.  And yet the stock market is reaching record highs.

The cabal’s Federal Reserve Board is pumping unprecedented sums of money into the system to try to prevent a meltdown.  It now looks like something called Collateralized Loan Obligations (CLOs) will be Ground Zero of the collapse.  These are bundles of junk loans which work according the same logic that caused the Lehman Brothers collapse.  That is to say, the financial wizards somehow think that if you take lots of small bits of garbage and put them into a big garbage bag, they stop being garbage.  This chart below shows that the problem this time is at least twice as big as the Lehman crisis.
https://www.zerohedge.com/s3/files/inline-images/3-Fed-repo-operations-768×452.png?itok=431QWT2b

This impeding implosion and revolution is probably the reason the Black Sun worshipers at the P2 Freemason lodge contacted the White Dragon Society last week.  The representative of the P2 said that Pope Francis, who is visiting Japan from November 23 to 26, would …

Deliberate implosion of financial system being engineered to kick-start new financial system

A bigger than Lehman Brothers collapse of the financial system is being engineered in order to make way for a new financial system, Asian secret society sources say.  Recent trends in financial markets, notably a stock market bubble of biblical proportions, back up this assertion.  Any financial veteran will tell you that when financial markets fight against reality, reality always wins in the end.  This means stock prices could fall by 90% or more.

However, in a sign the financial war is not yet over, European royals disagree, saying, “All of the world’s investment banks have begun to migrate away from the old system, so it is just a matter of time before it seamlessly or frictionlessly just morphs from the old to the new.”

This may work for payment systems, ATMs, and credit cards, etc., but not for the Western system of Babylonian debt slavery as a whole.  This system has resulted in the top 1% owning 53.2% of all stocks and mutual funds, and if you add in the next 9%, the rich control 93.2%, leaving the remaining 90% with just 6.8%.  Further proof that this is a system of debt slavery comes from the fact the bottom 90% of the people owe 72.4% of all the debt.
https://www.zerohedge.com/s3/files/inline-images/total%20asset%20held%20by%20wealth%20group.jpg?itok=mWryuKbR

This stock market, controlled and owned by the super-rich and their high-level servants, has become fraudulent and parasitical and is actually sucking money out of the real economy.  This makes a collapse mathematically inevitable.

Let’s take a look at some more numbers that prove this.  From January to October of this year worldwide, $339 billion has been put into bonds and $208 billion has been taken out of stocks, and yet the stock market keeps hitting record highs.  That’s because since 2009, institutional investors and households have taken $1.9 trillion out of the stock market while corporations, using private central bank funny money, have bought $3.6 trillion of their own shares.
https://www.zerohedge.com/s3/files/inline-images/equity%20bond%20flows%20oct%202019_0.jpg?itok=Nxl8qhbg

https://www.zerohedge.com/s3/files/inline-images/total%20flows%20buyback_1.jpg?itok=WtOd33NR

Plus, according to the Wall Street Journal, 97% of listed companies are not using Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) in releasing their profits, meaning basically they are cooking their books.
https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/wework-disaster-aftermath-97-companies-using-non-gaap-metrics-everything-fake

https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/corporate-profits-are-worse-you-think

Coca Cola is a good case study.  To quote from The Daily Bell:

“If we just go back a few years to 2010, Coca Cola’s annual revenue was $35 billion.  By 2018 the company’s annual revenue had fallen to less than $32 billion.  In 2010, Coca Cola generated $5.06 in profit (earnings) per share.  In 2018, just $1.50.  And Coca Cola’s total equity, i.e. the ‘net worth’ of the business, was $31 billion in 2010.  By 2018, equity had fallen to $19 billion.  So over the past eight years, Coca Cola has lost nearly 40% of its equity, sales are down, and per-share earnings have fallen by 70%.  Clearly the company is in far worse shape today than it was eight years ago.  Yet Coke’s share price has nearly DOUBLED in that period.”

To summarize, the families that own the Western (and Japanese) central banks are printing money and handing it to the corporations they also own, while sucking the lifeblood out of 90% of the population.
https://www.zerohedge.com/s3/files/inline-images/how%20qe%20works%20in%20practice.jpg?itok=3994DpPy

The financial system has become a giant black hole, which makes perverted sense since many of the ruling families worship the black sun.

One likely trigger will be the collapse of Deutsche Bank, which just announced a third quarter loss of 832 million Euros.
https://www.cnbc.com/2019/10/30/deutsche-bank-q3-2019-earnings.html

This chart of their stock price bears an uncanny resemblance to Lehman Brothers just before they collapsed.
https://www.zerohedge.com/s3/files/inline-images/bfm9067.jpg?itok=cVit4Ln5

A collapse of Deutsche Bank would pull down the European Central Bank and bankrupt the EU, the Asian sources say.

Needless to say, while it’s easy to spot a bubble, it’s harder to predict when it will burst.  However, Asian secret society and White Dragon Society (WDS) sources believe a collapse is likely in 2020.  This will be followed by a jubilee (a one-time write-off of all debt and redistribution of assets) and a huge campaign to fix the planet.  This plan includes setting up a meritocratic future planning agency that anybody can apply to join.

Before that becomes possible, though, some serious battles remain to be fought.  Right now, the main action is taking place in Saudi Arabia and Mexico, where the Khazarian mafia is fighting to preserve its oil and drug money pipelines.

Let’s start with the situation in Mexico, where according to Pentagon sources, U.S. President Donald Trump has “declared war on Mexican drug cartels, and indirectly the Democrats who are their secret supporters.”  However, Mexican sources say recent events in Mexico such as the supposed murder of nine American women and children are just false flags.  The evidence leads to “Yunque, an extreme-right secret occult sect with trails of …

Disclosure: RV-QFS

“The RV Plan” by Ron Giles – 11.12.19

 

“The RV Plan” by Ron Giles – 11.12.19

NOTE: For those with suspected Fake Zim Bonds – if you paid for them the NPTB will fund your Humanitarian Projects, they know who you are.

“Q,” says “Trust the Plan.” So, what is the RV Alliance plan anyway, and why is it so important to understand and trust?

These are good questions.

A plan is a set-in-motion process(s) that if followed, a person will arrive at a predetermined set of desired results. The adherence to the plan is, therefore, necessary to accomplish the results intended within the plan. If you don’t know the intended results, how can one determine the necessity to follow the plan?

This may seem a simple statement and yet why do so many people get confused and get carried around by every wind of doctrine (information) that comes along from the intel gurus they follow. There exist a set of results that must be understood so one can see for themselves the necessity of following the plan.

The Old Central Bank, banking system…why must it be replaced?

The Central Bank’s financial system is designed to create inflation that destroys the currency and the people’s assets and results in the necessity to re-establish a new currency to take the place of the old system. Inflation consumes the buying power of currency over time. When the buying power of currency is lost, people will turn to loans to solve financial problems. This creates a downward spiral into debt slavery.

In 1917 when the Central Bank’s banking system (CB) took over the then-existing financial system of the US, the US dollar was worth 100 cents. When inflation deteriorates the buying power of the dollar, at a Fed desired rate of 2% inflation per year, then the dollar loses 2 cents of value per year. After 50 years of 2% inflation, the dollar then loses 100% of its value when compared to when the cycle was started UNLESS it is reset and started over, which it has been.

Couple this with the interest rates charged to use the money and the economy is on a collision course with near-complete destruction. It needs to be re-set, usually by a catastrophic war scenario or some other major public event, to hide the demise of the inflation prone currency. The built-in design of the CB financial system is intended to last 50 – 70 years and then needs to be re-set to continue.

It is not hard to see why the Cabal, with their war hawks, are feverishly trying to start World War III? It is at the end of its cycle, and to continue, it needs the war to reset the CB financial system. This will not happen as the Alliance will not allow a World War to be started again. The CB financial system cannot carry the world debt without the re-set, so it will die of natural causes on its own.

The New Quantum Financial System (QFS) will replace the old Central Banking financial system.

As the last dying embers of the CB are being shown to the world, the Alliance is set to pull the trigger on the Fed and let the world know the CB is not needed anymore. They will not go peacefully into the trash, but into the trash, they will go. The Fiat system of currency backed by nothing of value will be buried and the old Gold-based, real money systems will emerge like the Phoenix rising out of the dust, but with a more secure way of using gold to back currencies of the world.

Beyond the necessity of some financial structure that supports the economy, the CB has always been the limiting factor for national and international Economic Growth. With its millstone around the neck to inhibit the financial growth of both individuals and Corporations, the CB has been the culprit that has cost the people of earth dearly. Of necessity, Governments have been complicit in supporting the CB with their bribery and extortions and all manner of illegal activities so that career politicians can become millionaires off the backs of people they are supposed to serve. The Government must keep the CB intact as the entity to control and manipulate the Economy. It is a system that has created the DC swamp and must be returned to the Constitutional form of government that this nation was founded upon as well as the new Quantum Financial System. (GESARA for the world)

The QFS stands as a sentinel to allow the new financial system to be economically successful for the people. The “lack- mentality,” of the Cabal economic system gives way to allow the people to become “Abundant” and self-sufficient with all the money they need to not only survive but to thrive.

The RV is essential to the “plan.”

The new financial system must have the financial where-with-all (cash/currency) for every person to have what they need to take care of their own requirements without needing to go on the dole or borrow money to survive. The RV supports this premise. Certain things in the new financial system will need to be held inviolable. The home and income should never be subject to foreclosure or loss that destroys the Family Unit and its security. Zim Benefactors must create provisions to avoid this problem, because it will not come from a Socialistic government, as in the dole. (LWS’s RSS program). Becoming responsible for ourselves and others will become the social norm instead of greed, hatred, dependancy, and divisions such as Race, Religion, Politics, Gender identity, and etc. that destroys society. If you’re not willing to give up your prejudices you might not make it in this new system. These divisions separate we humans and are part of the Cabal takeover that supports the Central Bank financial system that is being moved to the trash bin. Holding on to these divisions will be detrimental to society as a whole and will alienate individuals from full participation in a Thriving Society. Question: are we Zim Benefactors up to the task of creating a new Economic System for Society?

Society functions well when the basic structures are protected with all peoples contributing to the whole as responsible individuals. This is not Socialism, nor is it greedy Capitalism. Everyone willing to do their part for society and their family unit will add to the whole by doing things within their uniqueness to contribute to society as they desire. Lazy people will not do well, but those willing to do their part will find great opportunity and comfort in the new economic system that is coming.

What is the “Plan” and what are the desired “results?”

The PLAN is to create an economic system where every person, who is willing, can find financial success and live lives worthy of being the Sovereigns that we, as children of God, are by inheritance. Sovereigns conduct their lives according to correct principles that allow all persons to THRIVE and meet the full measure of their Creation.

The RESULTS are a Financial System that supports each individual as a viable member of society, worthy of respect and honor as each person contributes their uniqueness to the whole. Without each person participating in the bounty, the whole is not complete. The answer is to love and serve one another.

Conclusion

There is a PLAN that when fully implemented will produce the desired RESULTS.

When you read information, use your inner discretion and ask yourself: “How does this fit into the plan?”

It might be misinformation or disinformation or it might go against the plan:

1. If the information does not support the demise of the CB financial system post RV, then disregard, (there are no bank charges or fees in the QFS, Banks will not survive.)

2. And, if the information creates doubts in the RV process, the negotiable rates, or the amount of the funds available, then disregard.

3. And, if the information given lowers the belief you have in yourself or your ability to do your humanitarian work or if it supports any outside control or power-over-you, then disregard. (We are Sovereigns and control ourselves by adhering to Correct Principles in harmony with other Sovereigns) (Telling Zim Holders they will only receive ??? millions for a 100 T note, reflects power-over-people by un-named Shills, don’t stand for it)

4. And, if the information does not support the absolute security of our funds in the QFS, then disregard.

5. And, if the information does not include a discussion of Re-Valued gold-backed currencies to be deposited into your accounts within the QFS and not in a bank, then disregard.

6. And, if the information gives any expected dates for the RV or the release of the 800#, then disregard. (We are under a strategic, military disinformation protocol, we do not have a “need to know.” Surprise! Surprise!)

7. And, if the information or person gives continuing unfulfilled-expected-dates which has destroyed the credibility of all gurus who participate in this travesty, then disregard.

8. And, if the information gives any expected exchange or redemption rates, then disregard. (we negotiate on our own)

9. And, if the information talks about tranches or the movement of bank funds, then disregard. (The QFS has no need to move funds for exchanges or redemptions, it will be an account to account transfer within the QFS) (Banks use codes, QFS uses direct personal access using PIN numbers)

10. And, if the information says fake Zim Bonds will not be redeemed, then disregard. (All Zim Bonds support humanitarian projects, even if they are fake.)

11. And finally, and perhaps most importantly, if the information makes you feel uncomfortable in your heart or if it does not jive with what you already know to be correct, then disregard.

For we Humanitarians, there is a PLAN in place that is being meticulously followed with military precision. It will produce the RESULTS of a New Economic System that will inure to our benefit as we go about our Humanitarian Work.

I believe in the PLAN and expect the RESULTS to be far greater than we can presently comprehend.

Have a blessed day and “believe in things that are TRUE.”

China: “Give Peace a Chance”

 

China’s Vision for the Future: “Give Peace a Chance”

Text of Peter Koenig’s Presentation at the International Forum on “China’s 70-Year Development and the Construction of the Community with a Shared Future for Mankind”, Shanghai, November 2019

Region:
Theme:
Mao Zedong

China’s vision for the future is “Give Peace a Chance”. It is also the title of one of John Lennon’s most prominent songs. It became the anthem for the anti-war movement, at the time of the US-waged war against Vietnam. John Lennon was a peace activist. No wonder he was ostracized, considered enemy number one by the US establishment, was followed and surveyed by the FBI – and was eventually assassinated. October 9, 1940 is his birthday.

“Give Peace a Chance” is the key motto for China’s peace philosophy throughout her 70-years Revolution, often against challenging situations, especially in the last decade with almost permanent aggressions of one kind or another by the United States and their coopted allies in Europe. China is a tremendous challenge for the west, not only because of her sheer size and economic and technological advances, but also because China seeks peaceful cooperation and development around the globe.

The West does not seek Peace. Peace is bad for business. War is good and profitable, as such renown mainstream journals as the Washington Post have openly propagated in their op-ed columns time and again. Anecdotally, both world wars were initiated in the west. This is the premise under which the permanent western aggressions against the east, especially the leadership of the east, China and Russia, are being waged.

The motto of non-aggression and Peace – a Tao doctrine – prevails in China’s foreign policy as the top principle, as of this date. And there is no indication that China will depart from this Peace dogma which has brought her internal stability, international recognition – and has made China over the last decades to one of the world’s foremost economies, as well as a leader in technological and environmental advances. This, despite constant western castigating for pirating western technology and destroying the environment. The demonization is like a propaganda tool to deviate the world’s attention from western capitalist disasters around the world. But China moves on, undisturbed, generously, with a vision for a common future for mankind all mankind, not just China.

On 1 October, China celebrated the 70th Anniversary of her Revolution. China’s vision began with the Chinese Revolution,when China’s leader of the Communist Party, Mao Zedong, declared the Independent People’s Republic of China on 1 October 1949, succeeding the Republic of China (1912). In fact, China’s Revolution already began just after the Second Sino-Japanese War (1937-1945), at the end of WWII, with the Chinese Civil war (1945 – 1949), also called the War of Liberation.

The International Forum on “China’s 70-Year Development and the Construction of the Community with a Shared Future for Mankind”– 5-6 November in Shanghai, is part of the celebration. It is a forward-looking event with a Chinese vision for the future. To better grasp that vision for the future, here is a quick look at the past.

History with Foresight

Visionary Chairman Mao Zedong wanted to finally free the people of China from hundreds of years of western colonization and oppression, from the calamities of Opium Wars I and II (British imposed 1839-1842, and 1856-1860) and engaged the Chinese Communist Party (CPC – Communist Party of China) in an all-out confrontation with the Kuomintang (KMT), or the second phase of the Civil War (1945 – 1949).  The KMT, also called the Nationalist Party, was led by General Chiang Kai-shek, who succeeded KMT’s founder, Sun Yat-sen, after his death in 1925.

Chiang Kai-shek had the support of the United States, whose main objectives were stopping the “spread” of communism and maintaining continuous access to China’s riches, mostly in the form of natural resources, but also by exploiting the Chinese labor force. Washington ordered Chiang to break all relations with the Soviet Union – and to eliminate the threat of a communist leadership in China. This led to a lingering on and off conflict from the 1920s onwards between KMT and the CPC (also considered the first phase of the Civil War).

Hostilities began shortly after the foundation of the KMT in 1919 which was ‘helped’ by the United States. While Mao and his Communist Party emerged as the winner of the Civil War in 1949, Chiang Kai-shek and his followers took over the Chinese Province of Taiwan, where Kuomintang is still the ruling party. China’s non-aggression against the occupation of Taiwan is one of the many demonstrations of China’s peaceful diplomatic approach to conflict.

The current President of the Republic of China, as Taiwan calls itself, although it is a part of China, is Tsai Ing-wen, a politician and professor, in office since 2016. He caters entirely to the interests of Washington and the west in general, even vying to buy independently – and totally illegally – weapons from the US. While part of the PRC, Taiwan enjoys a certain autonomy, again compliments of China’s non-belligerent approach to conflicts.

Today, Taiwan is still recognized by 14 countries out of 193 UN members as the official representative of China. This, despite the fact that the UN declared the People’s Republic of China already in 1971 as the official representative of China with one of the five permanent seats in the UN Security Council (UNSC). Countries recognizing Taiwan as official China, still bending over to please Washington, are becoming fewer and fewer, as China is emerging as the number one economy of the world; call it socioeconomy, because China’s advancements are not just measured by the western standards of linear economic growth, but promote distributive growth, encompassing also vast improvements of people’s quality of life.

Mao’s victory brought a new era to the Chinese people. With what he called the Great Leap Forward (1958 – 1962), Mao and the CPC led a social and economic campaign converting the rural agrarian areas into a socialist industrialized economy through communal farming or agricultural cooperatives. This 4-year effort was constantly attacked and disrupted by infiltrated anticommunist saboteurs at a high social and monetary cost for China. But it served as a learning phase. China’s flamboyant rise to the second (by some accounts the first) world economy, proved that the lessons helped defeat US interference then and today.

The ten-year Cultural Revolution (1966 – 1976) was Mao’s sociopolitical movement aiming at cleaning socialist China from infiltrated capitalist elements and influences. Then, and to some extent still today, China was full with so-called Fifth Columnists, a term coined during the Spanish Civil war, when General Franco’s Nazi-party, the “Falange”, were able to defeat the legitimately elected Republicans, because the “Falange” had what they called a “Fifth Column” clandestinely embedded among the Republican defense forces in Madrid. Today Fifth Columnists are everywhere. They come in all shapes and forms, including disguised as western NGOs, in every country that Washington and its western allies want to dominate and provoke ‘regime change’.  It was clear that the west, predominantly the emerging US empire, wanted to disrupt Mao’s revolution; they would not let China flourish under her own political, communist values and believes.

Foreign meddling in China’s Revolution came at a huge cost for China. As a consequence, Mao’s revolutions are often portrayed by the west as failures, the usual western tarnishing the success of other nations, of other socioeconomic systems, in order to hide the west’s own disastrous failures. From a Chinese and humanitarian perspective, Mao’s Revolutions have drastically improved the public education and health system, have eradicated endemic deadly diseases inherited from the western dominated colonial and KMT times – and, foremost, poverty was largely eradicated. As of these days, about 750 million people have been lifted out poverty. Alleviation of poverty was an emphasis under both of Mao’s Revolutions. These Revolutions also taught valuable lessons to Chinese scholars and future leaders – and have drastically advanced China towards food self-sufficiency which she reached by 2018.

It is thanks to these lessons that, after Mao’s death in 1976, his successor, Deng Xiaoping, led China through a far-reaching economic reform, including elements of a market economy, however always under central government control – a principle that is maintained as of today. Deng called the new Chinese economic model “socialism with Chinese characteristics”, a principal that continues today. He helped develop China into the world’s fastest-growing economy, improving the lives of hundreds of millions of citizens. Deng also masterminded the return of Hong Kong from a UK colony to China in 1997, and Macau from Portugal in 1999. The transition was completed by Deng’s successor, Jian Zemin.

Deng retired in 1992. His successor, Jian Zemin, had several high-ranking positions in previous governments and was President of the PRC from 1993 – 2003. Jian opened China further for foreign investments and trade. He visited the US in 1997, where he met with President Clinton. Jian followed a non-confrontational foreign policy, like his predecessors, strengthened relations with western partners, especially the United States – and maintained at home an economic annual growth of at least 8%. This led to an explosion of wealth, but also initially to a less than optimal distribution of wealth, most of which concentrated along China’s eastern shores, risking conflicts with the lesser developed Chinese “hinterland”.

Hu Jintao followed Juan Zemin as China’s Paramount Leader from 2002 to 2012. Hu, as a rather modest leader, along with his Premier, Wen Jiabao, and his Vice-President, Xi Jinping, continued the policy of economic growth and development, achieving more than a decade of double-digit growth, however shifting the economy gradually more to non-consumption growth, fostering, instead, socioeconomic equality, aiming at building a “Harmonious Socialist Society”.

Hu was seeking a prosperous China, free of internal social conflicts and pursued internally and externally a “peaceful development policy” – with ‘soft power’ meaning a diplomatic approach to foreign policy issues, that was never confrontational. During Hu’s rule China increased its influence in Africa and Latin America, laying the groundwork for future closer relationships with these regions. Hu was also known for shared and consensus-based leadership. Hu was succeeded in 2013 by Xi Jinping.

The Vision

Enter the era of President Xi Jinping. He is a lawyer, chemical engineer, philosopher – and visionary. On 7 September 2013, President Xi Jinping gave a speech at Kazakhstan’s Nazarbayev University, in which he spoke about ‘People-to-People Friendship and Creating a better Future”. He referred to the Ancient Silk Road of more than 2,100 years ago, that flourished during China’s Western Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD 24).

Referring to this epoch of more than 2,000 years back, Xi Jinping pointed to the history of exchanges under the Ancient Silk Road, saying,

“they had proven that countries with differences in race, belief and cultural background can absolutely share peace and development as long as they persist in unity and mutual trust, equality and mutual benefit, mutual tolerance and learning from each other, as well as cooperation and win-win outcomes.”

Xi’s vision may be shaping the world of the 21st Century. He designed and engineered the Belt and Road Initiative, loosely modeled according to the Ancient Silk Road, soon after assuming the Presidency in 2013. He launched this ground-breaking “project”, a fabulous idea to connect the world with transport routes, infrastructure, industrial joint ventures, teaching and research institutions, cultural exchange and much more. Enshrined in China’s Constitution, BRI has become the flagship for China’s foreign policy.

BRI is literally building bridges and connecting people of different continents and nations. The purpose of the New Silk Road is to construct a unified large market and make full use of both international and domestic markets, through cultural exchange and integration, to enhance mutual understanding and trust of member nations, ending up in an innovative pattern with capital inflows, talent pool, and technology database”.

During the 19th National Congress in 2017, BRI was included in the Chinese (CPC) Constitution as an amendment to promote the BRI’s objective of “shared interests” and “shared growth” which are major political objectives for China. This amendment to the Constitution for raising international cooperation through a multifaceted socioeconomic development endeavor is unique in China’s history. It fits precisely the theme of the present Forum, “The Construction of the Community with a shared Future for Mankind”.

The BRI is a global development strategy adopted by the Chinese Government, eventually with investments in more than 150 countries and international organizations – and growing – in Asia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas. BRI is a multi-trillion investment scheme, for transport routes on land and sea, as well as construction of industrial and energy infrastructure, energy exploration, cultural exchange and integration facilities, education and research institutions – as well as trade among connected countries; and, unlike WTO (World Trade Organization), BRI is allowing nations to benefit from their comparative advantages, creating win-win situation. In essence, BRI is to develop mutual understanding and trust among member nations, allowing for free capital flows, a pool of experts and access to a BRI-based technology data base.

At present, BRI’s closing date is foreseen for 2049 which coincides with new China’s 100th Anniversary. The size and probable success of the program indicates, however, already today that it will most likely be extended way beyond that date. It is worth noting, though, that only in 2019, six years after its inception, BRI has become a news item in the West. Remarkably, for six years BRI was denied, or ignored by the western media, in the hope it may go away. But away it didn’t go. To the contrary, many European Union members have already subscribed to BRI, including Greece, Italy, France, Portugal – and more will follow, as the temptation to participate in this projected socioeconomic boom is overwhelming.

Germany is mulling over the benefits and contras of participating in BRI. The German business community, like business throughout Europe, is strongly in favor of lifting US-imposed sanctions and reconnecting with the East, in particular with China and Russia. But the official Berlin is still with one foot in the White House – and with the other trying to appease the German – and European – world of business. This balancing act is in the long run not sustainable and certainly not desirable. At present BRI is already actively involved in over 80 countries, of which at least half of the EU membership.

To counteract the pressure to join BRI, the European Union, basically run by NATO and intimately linked to Washington, has initiated their own ‘Silk Road’, to connect Asia with Europe through Japan. In that sense, the EU and Japan have signed a “free trade agreement” which includes a compact to build infrastructure, in sectors such as energy, transport and digital devices. The purpose is to strengthen economic and cultural ties between the two regions, boosting business relations between Asia and Europa. It is an obvious attempt to compete with or even sideline China’s BRI. But it is equally obvious that this response will fail. Usually initiatives taken in ill-fate are not successful. And China, non-belligerent China, is unlikely to challenge this EU-Japan competitive approach.

China’s New Silk Road is creating a multipolar world, where all participants will benefit. The idea is to encourage economic growth, distributed in a balanced way, so as to prioritize development opportunities for those most in need. That means the under-developed areas of western China, eastern Russia, Central Asia, Central Europe – reaching out to Africa and the Middle East, Latin America, as well as to South East Asia and the Pacific. BRI is already actively building and planning some six to ten land and maritime routes, connecting Africa, the Middle East, Europe and South America (see map, above).

The expected multi-trillion-dollar equivalent dynamic budget is expected to be funded by China, largely, but not exclusively, by the Asian Infrastructure and Investment Bank (AIIB), by Russia – and by all the countries that are part of BRI and involved in singular or multi-country projects.

Implementing BRI, or the New Silk Road, is itself the realization of a vision of nations: Peaceful interconnectivity, joint infrastructure and industrial development, as well as joint management of natural resources. For example, BRI may help with infrastructure and management advice resolving or preventing conflicts on transboundary water resources. There are some 263 transboundary lake and river basins, covering almost half the earth’s surface and involving some 150 countries. In addition, there are about 300 transboundary aquifers serving about 2 billion people who depend on groundwater.

Water resources, life depends on them. If these resources are not properly managed, by, say, one or several parties taking advantage of the other users, a conflict is born. Often such conflicts can become violent. BRI may turn this source of potential hostilities around into a source for peace. Water is among the most shared resources on earth, and as such it may serve as an instrument for peaceful connectivity.

The Chinese government calls the Silk Road Initiative “a bid to enhance regional connectivity and embrace a brighter future”. With freshwater resources rapidly diminishing for ready use in the public domain, because of industrial and human pollution and privatization, management of water resources and transboundary water in particular, may be constructed into a “Shared Future for Mankind.” The Belt and Road Initiative may provide the guiding principles for this shared future of life’s essential resource – water.

Today, “Give Peace a Chance” is more relevant than ever. And China is a vanguard in promoting peaceful development across the globe. During the Cuban Conference “For a World in Equilibrium” of January 2019, one of the Chinese representatives said very unequivocally in his presentation, “we are building bridges between people and nations to connect the world peacefully”. Undoubtedly, he is right and was referring to President Xi Jinping’s Belt and Road Initiative, or the New Silk Road.

The same can unfortunately not be said about the West which is, instead, building walls, predominantly the US, followed by her European vassals, either physical walls, or walls by conflicts, wars and – walls by “economic sanction”, by which they strangle and kill people en masse. Whenever a government does not share the US neoliberal doctrines, or refuses to bend to their dictate and efforts to plunder a country of natural resources, it is first subject to atrocious sanctions, then to military intervention with the goal of regime change. All that is possible, because the western world is run by the fiat dollar system, under which all international transactions have to transit through an American bank, foremost a Wall Street bank. That’s how they block transfers, confiscate and steal money in banks all over the world.

In Venezuela sanctions started soon after President Hugo Chavez was elected as President in 1998. They were severely enhanced under Obama in 2014, and President Trump squeezed the country even more in 2017. In August 2019 Trump tightened the noose of economic strangulation to the maximum, “the most that any country has been sanctioned”, he proudly proclaimed, blocking and confiscating government accounts, including national reserve accounts and gold all around the western world. They are seizing Venezuelan assets in the US and internationally, intercepting ships and otherwise interrupting trade, for example blocking crucial medication and food stock from entering the country, while also threatening sanctions on countries that are trading with Venezuela.

According to Venezuelan officials, the financial losses since 2017 amount to at least 130 billion dollars. These funds represent goods and services, the absence of which compromises not only wellbeing but real lives of Venezuelans. The 130 billion dollars could amply supply food and medication for Venezuelans to live well and for hospitals to function with the necessary medication and equipment. In addition, the US was directing mercenaries and members of the government opposition to sabotage the countries electric system, which caused days, in some regions weeks of black-outs, a disaster for hospitals depending on electricity for refrigeration and lighting of operating theaters. Indeed, a recent study by the Center for Economic Policy Research (CEPR), in Washington, concluded that sanctions of the US and their European allies may have cost the lives of up to 40,000 Venezuelans. But Venezuela will not cave in and will survive, largely thanks to the support from China and Russia.

At this time could also be mentioned the 60 years blockade of Cuba, the US instigated wars on Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Vietnam, the civil wars in Central America, Central Africa, the hostilities towards North Korea – and of course the constant aggressions vis-à-vis China and Russia – and much more. All for eradicating any “threat” of socialism that might spread as a positive alternative to boundless turbo-capitalism which is currently running the western world.

But enough about the west and its drive for world hegemony in flagrant disrespect of international law and Human Rights. It just goes to illustrate a few examples to juxtapose the west and the east, foremost China in alliance with Russia, whose approach is a multipolar socioeconomic development scheme, generous and peaceful, connecting people through trade and through BRI.

“The future is in the East” – so goes a progressive axiom. It is also my strong believe. By the East is meant China, Russia, most of Central Asia; now all represented by the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), or the Shanghai Pact. SCO is a Eurasian political, economic, and security alliance, the creation of which was announced on 15 June 2001 in Shanghai, China by the leaders of China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. The Pact was signed in June 2002 and entered into force in September 2013. SCO’s headquarters are in Beijing

Today, the SCO counts 8 members, including the member India and Pakistan. Iran and Mongolia are on a “waiting list”, on the verge of becoming members. Turkey, already a dialogue partner, is increasingly vying gaining SCO access, either through association or full membership. And this, despite the conflict it may create with Turkey’s NATO partners, mainly the US. Clearly, were Turkey to join the SCO, exit from NATO would be imminent – and disastrous for NATO, perhaps he stumbling block that would bring NATO down. Especially, since popular anti-NATO pressure from Italy to Germany, Greece, Spain and Portugal is steadily growing. Turkey is also the most strategically located NATO partner between East and West; between Europe and Asia, controlling the Bosporus, access to the Black Sea.

The SCO has also several observer and dialogue partners which eventually, it is assumed, may become full-fledged SCO members. The SCO is also called the alliance of the east and is considered a security pillar in more ways than one: SCO members account for almost half of the world population and for about one third of the world’s economic output. In other words, this eastern alliance is politically and economically autonomous and to a large extent detached from the western dollar based “sanction-prone” economy.

The SCO, a visionary Chinese initiative of the early 2000s, was overlaid and expanded in 2013 by another brilliant Chinese Initiative, the BRI. May also be added to this powerhouse another association of countries, the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), primarily a trading partnership. The members are located in central and northern Asia, and include Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia. The treaty was formally established in January 2015.

This block of eastern countries and associations is seeking against all odds, a multi-polar world, a world of Peace and Prosperity for All – a big challenge given the current socioeconomic disequilibrium – but feasible with mutual respect and a will to cooperate, to apply the forces of synergy and solidarity, as is inherent in the Belt and Road approach. The stakes are high. As Russia’s Foreign Minister, Mr. Lavrov pointed out during the 74th UN General Assembly, in September 2019: “The West ignores reality by trying to prevent the formation of a multi-polar world by imposing its narrow “liberal” rules on others.” But, he added, “Western dominance is on the wane, ‘we’re liberals, so everything’s allowed’ just isn’t working anymore.” These words are the basis for a strong pillar and union of eastern associations.

Outlook and Vision

Economy

China has registered during the past decades a phenomenal economic growth rate, at times exceeding 12% per year. Today it has been on purpose reduced to about 6%, so as to allow a better distribution of the growth benefits, and also spread wealth more horizontally to create greater equality of wellbeing.

In figures and facts:

China’s GDP measured in US-dollars amounts to $14.2 trillion (nominal; 2019 est.), which corresponds to $27.3 trillion in Purchasing Power Parity (PPP; 2019 est.). This corresponds to US$ 10,153 / capita, in nominal term (2019 est.), to US$ 19,520 / capita measured by PPP.

Compare this with the US GDP of US$ 21.345 trillion in nominal terms (2019 est.) and $64,767 / per capita (2019 est.) This makes China the world’s second largest economy in nominal terms, expected to exceed the US by 2026. However, when comparing the two GDPs by their PPP values, China is number one; having surpassed the United States in 2016.

Measured by PPP, China is already today de facto the world’s largest economy, because the only figures that have any significance in economic production and consumption, are those that reflect the output’s purchasing power.

Examples of Economic Efficiency

New Airport in Beijing: In only 4 years China built by far the world’s largest airport in Beijing, Daxin International Airport. It was ready for China’s 70th Birthday on 1 October 2019, when it was inaugurated by President Xi Jinping. It has been operational the week after inauguration. This airport, an architectural wonder, covers some 700,000 m2 (almost 100 football fields) and carries passengers by fast train in 20 minutes to the center of Beijing. It is expected to accommodate in 2021 already 45 million passengers and can easily be expanded to receive and serve 100 million passengers as the need requires. This airport is a sign that China is capable of realizing extraordinary achievements – it signals a visionary future.

China’s Rapid Urbanization: When in 2017, Beijing was faced with a housing shortage for low-wage migrant workers, they built 100,000 low-rent apartments in twelve months. The speed of China’s infrastructure development, the rapid urbanization, providing millions of new subsidized housing for migrant workers, is a model that has worked and is being replicated throughout China. In fact, pays off socially and economically. People who do not have to worry about shelter, are healthier and live and work better. China has been building homes for a million people–the entire housing stock of San Francisco – every month since 1950. This policy aims at and creates wellbeing among the workers, among the people – and is at the same time a solid tool for China’s economic development – and people’s happiness. China’s successful and rapid housing development is being closely watched by Australia, as her major cities, Sydney and Melbourne face similar problems.

Trade

China has been the world’s largest exporter of goods since 2009. Official estimates suggest Chinese exports amounted to about $2.1 trillion in 2017. The total annual value of the country’s exports equates to approximately $1,500 for every Chinese resident. Since 2013, China has as well become the world’s largest trading nation.China is also a significant importer and accounts for about 10% of total global imports, i.e., about US$ 1.7 trillion, leaving China as a net exporter with a trade surplus of about US$ 400 billion. – Trade war with the US– see below.

Monetary Policy

China’s Yuan, is a solid currency, backed by China’s economy and by gold. In 2017 the Yuan was admitted into the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) basket of reserve currencies, which constitute the SDR – or Special Drawing Rights. The SDR basket consists of five currencies and their respective weights are: US-Dollar $41.73%, Euro 30.93%, Renminbi (Chinese Yuan) 10.92%, Japanese Yen 8.33%, British Pound 8.09%. The Yuan is clearly undervalued in the SDR basket, as it is rapidly replacing the dollar as reserve currency. Treasurers around the globe realize that the US-dollar is fiat money, backed by nothing, whereas the Yuan is a solid currency, based on a solid economy, plus backed by gold.

The decline of the US dollar as a world reserve currency means that the US dollar hegemony is fading. This is inadmissible for the US. Therefore, Washington along with the major western allies are considering to abandon the key reserve role of the dollar and replacing it with some kind of an SDR, in which the dollar would maintain a prominent role, but its Ponzi-scheme characteristics would no longer be openly visible.

The current US debt to GDP ratio is about 105%. However, what the General Accounting Office calls “unmet obligations” amounts to about 700% of GDP (net present value – total outstanding obligations discounted to today’s value). According to former Federal Reserve Chairman, Alan Greenspan, responding to a journalist’s question, “we will never pay back our debt; we will just print new money”. This is a dangerous pyramid, or Ponzi-scheme, of which most governments are aware, and yet many of them hold on to the dollar as key reserve currency. With the yuan rising, this may change rapidly. In fact, the conversion from dollar to yuan as reserve currency has already started.

Regarding the western foreseen reserve basket to “save” the dollar, it is not clear yet what the other currencies and their respective weight in the new “Reserve SDR” would be, but let’s assume the same five currencies. The Yuan, if still in the reserve basket would probably still be under-valued. If so, this might be a good reason for China to exit the Reserve SDR and continue with the Yuan by its own economic and monetary value as a reserve currency. The Yuan has made its reputation of stability and does no longer need the backing of a (western coined) SDR to prove its strength as a reserve currency.

The War on Tariffs

In June 2018, US President Trump started an unprovoked Trade War with China, then expanded it to other countries, including his European allies. But it is most ferocious with China. As usual, China’s response was not hostile. Retaliation, yes; but still an approach of seeking negotiations and compromise. In reality, the US market for China may be important, but not that important to be humiliated as was the case with the American bulldozer approach to impose not just tariffs, but tariffs that were nothing but a new form of economic sanctions.

The real meaning and purpose behind these tariffs was not reducing China’s exports in the first place, but harming the Yuan, as it was gaining strength and, as mentioned before, gradually taking over the US-dollar’s role as world reserve currency. Some 20 years ago the US dollar accounted for more than 90% of all reserve assets in nations’ treasuries around the globe. Today, that percentage has shrunk to less than 60% and is fading rapidly. Much of the lost territories by the US dollar was made up by the Chinese Yuan. And as the importance of the Yuan rises, the US hegemony of the world’s economy, resources and people will fade. This does not go down in Washington without a fight.

Future Economic Growth

China, in the near future, will most likely keep to a “modest” growth rate, around 5% to 7%, concentrating on horizontal distributive growth, with a focus on improved public wellbeing for all, universal access to affordable housing, basic infrastructure, water supply, sanitation, public transportation, rural higher education, as well as internal cultural exchange and harmonization. Two areas of economic development, ”horizontal growth”, may be singled out; (i) Artificial Intelligence (AI), and (ii) Environmental Improvement.

Technological Innovation

China is a Power House of new technologies and no doubt the world’s number one in Technological Innovation. Just to mention a few, not in order of priority:

  • Rapidly progressing robotization of construction and manufacturing, as well as of medical interventions, like surgeries and localized cancer treatment;
  • 3-D construction of serving a myriad of sectors, including manufacturing in the medical sector, medical equipment, human body replacement parts, production of construction materials – and more. China predicts in 20 to 30 years everybody (in China) will have access to individualized 3D building capacity;
  • Face recognition technology, making traditional ID and bank account access cards obsolete and identity protection more secure;
  • High-speed train systems, a domain where China has bypassed Japan and is the world’s number one; i.e. the high-speed railways Shanghai Maglev and Fuxing Hao CR400AF/BF;
  • A new generation of garbage recycling – into building material, fertilizers, fuel as a source of energy – and more;
  • Architecture and building efficiency, only two examples, (i) the new Beijing Daxin International Airport, the world’s largest, built in just 4 years, with a capacity of more than 100 million passengers per year – and a superb architecture; (ii) the “Birds Nest” – the stadium for the 2008 Summer Olympics which will also be used for the 2022 Winter Olympics; it was built in less than 5 years and is an architectural masterpiece, and
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) – see below.

China’s ambition: Everything is possible – and China has already proven that it can be done.

Artificial Intelligence (AI).China is also moving rapidly towards leadership in Technical Innovation for Artificial Intelligence, with plans to invest considerable resources into research. In 2017, the State Council (CCP) issued a “Next Generation Intelligence Development Plan”, including a US$ (equivalent) 2.1 billion AI industrial park. By 2025 the State Council predicts China to be a leader in AI research and predicts that China’s AI core industry will be worth some US$ 60 billion, amounting to about US$ 700 billion equivalent, when accounting for related industries. By 2030, the State Council expects China to be the global leader in development of AI.

Environmental Improvement. China has made leaps in improving her environment, by far exceeding efforts of western countries. China’s environmental policies are developing BRI at home and abroad in shades of green. New parks with trees and areas for recreation are emerging in every major city in China. According to an expert at the School of Regulation and Global Governance of the Australian National University, Beijing has improved its air quality by 30% in the last five years.

A study of the University of Chicago demonstrates that Chinese cities have reduced the concentrations of fine particulates in the air on average by 32 % between 2014 and 2018.

The Chinese people and government are putting utmost importance to protecting the environment and ecosystems. Green development makes for improved public health, but is also attractive for investments.

China has a three-year “green” plan to improve air quality and tighten regulations. Air quality is one of the key environmental issue besetting China. In that sense, the government is accelerating the electrification of vehicles and has pledged that by 2030 all new cars will be powered by electricity.The government is also tackling drinking water quality and shortages, as well as improving urban and rural sanitation. These are longer-term propositions. Cost estimates for China’s overall environmental programs are not readily available but may easily reach into hundreds of billions of US-dollar equivalents over a ten-year period.

Conclusion

A few years ago, China, Russia and other SCO countries have started trading among themselves in their local currencies with a non-western monetary transfer system, using mostly the Chinese Cross-Border Interbank Payment System (CIPS). It is out of control of the western SWIFT transfer system, thereby escapes the sanctions regime of the US. Gradually, the SCO and associated countries are detaching themselves from the western dollar-based fiat system.

In terms of trading, the SCO countries, mainly China, control most of the Asian markets, even making rapid inroads into Japan and Australia, and are evermore present in Latin America and Africa. Before long Europe will see the light and turn eastwards. It would be a wise decision. Dealing first within the confines of the huge Eurasian landmass, including the Middle East and parts of Africa – has been the logical way of trading since the Ancient Silk Road, more than 2,000 years ago.

China has a great visionary future that had already begun 70 years ago, and was enhanced six years ago with President Xi Jinping’s launching of the Belt and Road Initiative. BRI will continue spanning the globe for the next at least 50 to 100 years, spreading development in a multi-polar world, stressing equality and wellbeing for all. BRI investments may be counted in the multi-multi trillions and will be funded by China and the participating countries, with a socio-economic return that cannot be expressed in sheer monetary terms, as investments will also bring unfathomable social benefits, poverty reduction, improved health, higher and better education and, generally improving people’s wellbeing.

The bright side of this initiative, is the Chinese philosophy of non-aggression, of diplomacy to resolve conflicts and of promoting peaceful economic coexistence and development around the globe.

China’s determination to develop with a “green” economy, a “green” BRI and a horizontal distributive growth that emphasizes equality and inclusion is a landmark model for the world to embrace. It is a model to construct a Community with a Shared Future for Mankind.
