Russia-China Cooperation, The Power of Siberia Project, Strategic Gas Pipelines

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…

Weekly Geo-political News and Analysis

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:

Benjamin Fulford weekly reports

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/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.

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.

Benjamin Fulford Geo-Political News and Analysis

With puppets like Obama, Pelosi and Netanyahu gone, Khazarian mafia resorts to nuclear blackmail

The battle to liberate the planet Earth is reaching a crescendo as Khazarian mafia puppet politicians are being systematically hunted down and killed or arrested, Pentagon and MI6 sources say.  At the same time, the cabal has initiated surrender negotiations, according to sources in the White Dragon Society and Earth Alliance.

A clear sign we are facing an unusual situation is that Israel shut down its embassies worldwide, ostensibly because of a labor dispute.  This shutdown is widely interpreted as nuclear blackmail, since Israeli embassies are known to contain nuclear weapons.  However, Pentagon sources say Israel was forced to shut down all of its embassies “because they may house nukes, weapons of mass destruction, and terror cells.”

Resistance leaders, who say much of the ongoing Western civil war is taking place in underground bunkers, provided this map of U.S. underground facilities to illustrate.


They say the most serious fighting is centered around the underground facilities in California, where cabal strongholds like Google, PayPal, and Facebook are located.  There are also underground bunkers in Switzerland, Greece, and Israel that are still fully under cabal control, the sources say.

Meanwhile, on the surface, second-tier cabal agents like former U.S. President Barack Obama, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are being removed.  Since top-ranking fronts like George Bush Sr., Pope Maledict (Benedict XVI), George Soros, David Rockefeller, etc. are already gone, the real puppet masters are increasingly hiding behind computer graphics and body doubles or “clones,” CIA sources say.

For example, last week videos of Pelosi and Obama appeared to create the appearance they are still alive, but our sources on the ground say that neither of them has been seen in public in recent weeks.  We would say with a 90% certainty that those videos were created using computer graphics.

Mossad sources, meanwhile, say the “real Bibi Netanyahu” is in a deep underground base in Israel and the one seen publicly “is a double/clone.”  Mossad entrapment officer Jeffrey Epstein and fake ISIS leader Shimon Elliot “al-Baghdadi” are in the same bunker, the source says.

The undeclared civil war in the U.S. also took a decisive turn last week after the forensic discovery of IMF involvement in the campaign to remove Trump.  “A huge IMF loan to the Ukraine” authorized by then-IMF head Christine Lagarde “generated a large amount of cash that was then laundered into …

Third (fourth?) death of Mossad agent Shimon Elliot “al-Baghdadi” actually signifies major Middle East change

While only a few die-hard corporate propaganda Kool-Aid drinkers actually believe the U.S. announcement that “master terrorist al-Baghdadi” was killed yet again, this time it actually means something, Pentagon sources say.  The third announcement of his death means that U.S. President Donald Trump “is poised with Russian help to cut off illegal oil, arms, human, and drug trafficking that benefit Zionists, the CIA, and the deep state,” they explain.

https://edition.cnn.com/politics/live-news/abu-bakr-al-baghdadi-isis-intl-hnk/index.html

Basically, now that the pretense of fighting ISIS or Al Qaeda or whatever brand name they used has blown up, Trump is now openly telling the truth—that the wars in the Middle East are about stealing oil.  The fact that Trump mentions Rockefeller-controlled Exxon Mobil by name as the company that can develop the Syrian oil fields also means Trump is now an official spokesperson for big oil.
https://lawandcrime.com/crazy/trumps-plan-to-take-syrian-oil-slammed-as-clear-violation-of-international-law-and-imperial-looting/

In any case, Gordon Duff of Veteran’s Today, who has better Middle East sources than this writer, says Mossad agent Shimon Elliot, aka “al-Baghdadi,” is actually still alive.  You can read his excellent report here:
https://www.veteranstoday.com/2019/10/27/exclusive-russia-says-bagdadi-killing-faked-by-us-part-of-new-move-against-the-region-by-deep-state/

Presumably he is enjoying his official death in a safe house along with his Mossad buddy Jeffrey Epstein.

This picture of CIA agent Tim Osman, aka “Bin Laden,” with his handlers sent to us by the Germans supports what Duff reports.


While we cannot confirm if these pictures are genuine, the story they convey has been confirmed to us by multiple sources over the years.

Meanwhile, in a sign the undeclared civil war in the U.S. is reaching a crescendo, the list of missing politicians in Washington, DC keeps growing.  Neither House Speaker Nancy Pelosi nor House Intelligence Committee head Adam Schiff have appeared in public since their sudden trip to Jordan last week.

House Republican Whip Steve Scalise tried to keep up pretense with this widely quoted tweet:  “My colleagues & I went to confront Schiff face-to-face in his locked room in the Capitol basement to see what he’s been hiding.  When we got there he immediately shut down the hearing & fled with the witness.”
https://twitter.com/SteveScalise/status/1187100490888335360?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%3EOctober

However, a colleague in Washington, DC with a press pass says Pelosi, Schiff, and many others have not been seen in public during the past week and no new videos of them have emerged, either.  Former CIA chief John Brennan, who was constantly in the media, has also not been seen in public for two weeks, the journalist also noted.  (Note to computer graphic agents:  Time to get to work.)

Also, the fact that corporate media reports concerning the ongoing “Ukraine” impeachment proceedings against Trump now quote politicians other than Schiff or Pelosi lends credibility to the idea that they are gone.

Pentagon sources explain, “As sealed indictments reach 130,000, many notables may choose death over dishonor, Gitmo, or military tribunals, and they may be given the …

Benjamin Fulford Report: An attempted coup against U.S. President Donald Trump has failed

Benjamin Fulford Report, October 21st, 2019

“Coup Attempt Fails” – Fulford Report – 10.21.19

Weekly Geo-political News and Analysis

Coup attempt against Donald Trump fails, October revolution continues

October 21, 2019
By Benjamin Fulford

An attempted coup against U.S. President Donald Trump has failed and several senior U.S. politicians, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, are likely to be arrested or executed as a result, MI6 and Pentagon sources say. That is why Pelosi, Schiff, plus Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engel, Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson, and Rep. Mac Thornberry, the ranking member of the House Armed Services Committee, and others made a sudden trip to Jordan and then Afghanistan, the sources say.

The politicians sought protection in Jordan because Antoinette Gardiner, the mother of the current King of Jordan, is from a satanic bloodline who “converted” to Islam and changed her name to Muna, according to Pentagon and other sources.

https://www.veteranstoday.com/2019/10/20/henry-makow-satanic-black-magic-rules-the-world/

However, Jordan’s government was unwilling or unable to provide protection, so they flew to Afghanistan in a failed attempt to drum up U.S. military support there for their coup, the sources said.

It is worth noting that last week former Defense Secretary James Mathis and former head of U.S. Special Forces Admiral William McRaven both publicly criticized Trump and were widely quoted as doing so by the corporate propaganda media.

Mathis, after criticizing Trump, warned that “hyper-partisanship” would either lead to “anarchy” or “the rise of an ambitious leader, unfettered by conscience, or precedent or decency, who would make himself supreme.”

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/jim-mattis-slams-donald-trump-during-speech-al-smith-dinner-2019-10-18/

McRaven, who led the fake raid against Bin Laden in 2011, was quoted as saying, “As I stood on the parade field at Fort Bragg, one retired four-star general grabbed my arm, shook me, and shouted, ‘I don’t like the Democrats, but Trump is destroying the Republic!’ Those words echoed with me throughout the week.”

The coup attempt was prompted by “the execution of powerful anti-Trump Congressman Elijah Cummings,” who was “found guilty of enabling child sex trafficking,” Pentagon sources say. Pelosi was also prompted to flee the country by the death of her brother, former Baltimore Mayor Thomas D’Alesandro III, the sources say.

The trail of intrigue is now implicating Pope Francis, MI6 sources say. “The Pope’s bodyguard, Vatican Head of Police Domenico Giani, just resigned over the financial corruption scandal and associated leaks,” they say. “Really, the Pope should just go. We will eventually find the financial forensics leading back to him linked to assassination attempts against people involved in setting up the new financial system,” they added. The Pope’s role in Argentina’s “dirty war,” in which over 20,000 people were tortured and murdered, is also being investigated, they note.

The Pope and the P2 Freemasons who put him in power were responsible for this dirty war, as well as 9/11, Fukushima, and many other mass murder incidents. They also bragged that the now executed Barack Obama was their man.

Francis will be visiting Japan (a country where only 0.5% of the population is Catholic) from November 23 to 26 to try to shore up the slave regime of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. While here, Francis will try to continue the cover-up of the fact that his predecessor as head of the Jesuits, Peter-Hanz Kolvenbach, boasted in a call recorded by the NSA that he was Satan and responsible for Fukushima. Francis has been warned that he will be the last pope if he continues to cover up these and other monstrous crimes against humanity committed by the Vatican.

The other thing Francis will be doing is preparing for the announcement of a fake Messiah which is being cultivated by the P2 Freemasons. This is an individual with stigmata who is being trained for this role, P2 Freemason sources say. The Vatican is also sending its top assassin to East Asia around this time in an effort to cover up its criminal activities in the region, the sources say.

It is interesting to note in this context that North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un rode a white horse on the sacred Mt. Paektu last week. The North Korean Central News agency predicted, “There will be a great operation to strike the world with wonder again and make a step forward in the Korean revolution.”

https://kcnawatch.org/newstream/1571601920-832224570/supreme-leader-kim-jong-un-climbs-up-mt-paektu/

A sudden move (with U.S. military approval) to unify the Korean Peninsula may well be what Kim is planning. It is also worth noting that Emperor Hirohito was always pictured as a descendant of the Sun God when riding a white horse during WWII, so this picture of Kim also seems to indicate he is setting himself up as the true Emperor. Of course, Japanese Emperor Naruhito, who is hosting hundreds of international VIPs for his enthronement ceremony on October 22nd, is of a different opinion.

In any case, Asian intrigue aside, the dragnet is closing on the satanists worldwide, as a “Pentagon pedo task force of Navy Seals and Marines liberated thousands of children from Californian underground bases to deprive the deep state of adrenochrome,” the Pentagon sources say. Children are tortured and murdered before their blood and adrenal glands are removed in order to extract the stimulant adrenochrome, according to multiple whistleblowers.

Also last week, the U.S. Department of Justice “arrested 337 pedos across 38 countries including the UK, France, Italy, the U.S., Germany, and Brazil after a dark web, Bitcoin child porn site hosting 250,000 videos was shut down,” the Pentagon sources say. Of course, it is just a matter of time before the arrested pedophiles rat on their satanic bosses.

The net is also closing in on the cabal following the arrest in India of drug maker Ranbaxy founders Malvinder and Shivinder Singh, who have begun “snitching on the Clinton Foundation,” the sources add.

The ongoing negotiations by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to testify against his satanic bosses in exchange for leniency is yet another continuing threat to the cabal. The U.S. withdrawal from Syria has forced Israeli politicians like him to realize they have to cut a deal, because Israel no longer has the U.S. military at its beck and call.

The reality on the ground is that the messianic Israeli project is coming to an end. A Persian (Iranian), Arab, and Turkish war or intense negotiations will now determine the fate of the Middle East. The Israelis will have to reach an accord with one of these factions to ensure the survival of their country. The most likely candidates are their fellow Semites—the Arabs. In fact, Egypt has now come out against Turkey on behalf of the Arabs, meaning they are Israel’s best hope.

https://thearabweekly.com/egypt-steps-support-syrian-kurds-increases-political-pressure-turkey

In any case, Russian diplomacy, backed by a tacit U.S./Russian military alliance, will probably make intense negotiations the most likely outcome in the region.

A lot of intrigue is going on in other parts of the world as well. However, since this is being widely reported elsewhere, we will just note that there are riots and social unrest in France, England, Spain, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Lebanon, Hong Kong, etc. The ultimate backdrop to all this unrest is uncertainty at the highest levels of power; that is, at the top of the financial system.

A European royal says this Bloomberg interview with Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis President James Bullard discussing regime change at the Fed “is actually a sign that control of interest rate decisions has moved from a manual rate setting by ‘the Committee’ reactive to the global economy to recursive complexity theory using A.I.” In other words, AI detects repeating patterns in order to make decisions. This essentially what modern weather forecasters do when predicting things like hurricanes.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/videos/2019-10-15/bullard-says-fed-must-consider-additional-insurance-in-next-meetings-video

However, a global currency reset to stabilize the entire system will have to wait until the old system destabilizes further, the source says. He predicted the reset would take place in the year 2020.

In the meantime, uncertainty levels, as measured by the frequency of key words in the media, are at levels never seen before, surpassing 9/11, the Lehman shock, the fall of the Soviet Union, etc. In other words, it looks like the old system is going to have to collapse before the new can be ushered in.

https://www.zerohedge.com/economics/did-something-just-snap-us-policy-uncertainty-unexpectedly-soars-above-lehman-sept-11

This does not mean all the news is bad, though. For example, there are now undeniable signs the U.S. military has begun the process of disclosure. They have been publishing patents for technology like free energy that will totally revolutionize how we live.

https://www.zerohedge.com/technology/navy-patents-ufo-compact-nuclear-fusion-reactor-and-hybrid-spacesea-crafts

Now it looks like an actual demonstration of this science-fiction-like technology will take place on October 30th, according to a U.S. Air Force Academy tweet.

https://twitter.com/AF_Academy/status/1185227374427807745

We are also hearing that diamond prices are plunging worldwide because previously hidden carbon technology is about to be released. Remember, diamonds are made of carbon, one of the cheapest and most plentiful materials there is. Carbon scientists tell us that diamond windows, tableware, etc. will soon be made available to the public.

https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/there-global-crisis-israel-diamond-industry-plunges-amid-global-turmoil

Even more exciting, medical technology to make us immortal is being released. For example, a three-drug combination that can increase lifespan by 50% has been announced. While the article below says this works for fruit flies, it affects a basic mechanism in our bodies that is identical to that seen in fruit flies.

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/09/190930161857.htm

Let that sink in a bit—technology for free energy, space travel, and immortality is being made available publicly. These are very real signs that a new age has begun.

By South FrontAccording to the agreement, Turkey’s Operation ‘Peace Spring’ will continue in a limited area between Tell Abyad and Ras al-Ayn with a depth of 32km. Starting from 12:00 October 23, units of the Russian Military Police and the Syrian Army will be deployed along the rest of the Turkish border to the east of the Euphrates. Read more…

The Russian-Turkish Deal on Syria: Who Won and Who Lost?

By Andrew KorybkoPresidents Putin and Erdogan reached a deal on Syria that represents a decisive victory for Turkey while being a drastic climbdown for Damascus after President Assad vowed earlier that day that the Syrian Arab Army was “prepared to support any group carrying out popular resistance against the Turkish aggression” only to later “fully support” the Russian-brokered agreement to give Ankara practically all of what it wants once he was informed about the details by his counterpart in Moscow. Read more…

As Trump Aids and Abets Turkey’s War Crimes, the UN Must Act

By Prof. Marjorie CohnWhile the United States and Turkey reached a “ceasefire” agreement on October 17, there are ongoing reports of violations of the deal. A U.S. official told CNN that Turkish-backed forces broke the ceasefire on its first day, saying that they were either acting beyond the scope of Turkish control or Turkey “didn’t care what they did.” Two U.S. officials said the ceasefire “is not holding.” The agreement calls for a five-day ceasefire and requires Kurdish fighters to leave an area of Syria along the Turkish border, in essence, relinquishing control of their territory. The United States would lift the threat of further sanctions on Turkey, and once a “permanent cease-fire” occurs, would remove the sanctions that Trump imposed in the wake of criticism of his abrupt withdrawal from the region. Read more…

Why Did Trump Give the Green Light to Turkish Intervention in Northern Syria? Framed by Russia?

By Nauman SadiqIn return for the generous favor of establishing a safe zone along Turkey’s southern border to address its security concerns regarding the Kurds, Turkey would probably allow the Syrian government with the backing of Russia to occupy a few strategic areas in northwestern Idlib Governorate – particularly near the Alawite heartland Latakia, such as Khan Sheikhoun, which the Syrian government has recently liberated from al-Nusra Front, and Marat al-Numan and Jisr al-Shughour – though this hasn’t been stipulated in the agreement and was most likely informally discussed in the Erdogan-Putin meeting. Read more…

However, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu has raised some interesting questions and warned of the danger of “reverse migration” of foreign terrorists to their home countries as Turkey has completely ignored prisons and camps holding the jihadists. Read more…

Putin-Erdogan Meeting Aims to Organise Differences and Shorten the Gap Between Allies

By Elijah J. MagnierIn the first week of the month of October the US informed Turkey and Russia of its intention to withdraw from north-east Syria (NES). Turkish President Recep Tayyib Erdogan pulled out a plan prepared over a year ago to move forces into NES and take control of cities like Manbij, Ain al-Arab and Ras al-Ayn: an area 440 kilometres long and 35 kilometres wide. The US central command and the Russian military command, as well as other countries including Syria, were informed of the Turkish intention to move forward to fill in the gap. Turkey believes this incursion into the Syrian territory serves its national security and will relocate millions of Syrian refugees living in Turkey, and those who will move out of Idlib once the liberation of the city is in process. Read more…

By Stephen LendmanRussia’s intervention in Syria changing the dynamic on the ground, US inability to topple Iran’s government, and effectiveness of Yemeni Houthis against Pentagon/CIA-orchestrated Saudi aggression foiled US/Israeli regional aims. Before withdrawal of unclear numbers of US forces from northern Syria cross-border to Iraq, Pentagon troops controlled around 30% of the country. Unknown numbers of US forces continue to unlawfully control southern Syrian territory near the Iraqi and Jordanian borders, no plans to withdraw them. Read more…

Archangelic Wisdom & Divine inspiration for an empowered life

Shanta Gabriel ~ It’s Safe to Let Your Light Shine!

by Shanta Gabriel, October 20, 2019, ShantaGabriel.com

https://tinyurl.com/y6zq8bhf

This is the shortest of the Gabriel Messages, and yet one of the most profound. Every time I read it, my heart is blasted with Archangelic Wisdom and Divine inspiration for an empowered life. This is a safety affirmation that can be used at any time to bring you a sense of Grace and Protection.

I was first introduced to the concept of safety affirmations in 1988. They have been very helpful in making me more empowered in my physical body and the world.

For years I had never felt safe to be in my body. It really did not feel as though the Earth was a benevolent or safe place for me to live. Even though I knew I had volunteered to be on this planet during these challenging times of awakening, throughout my life it had felt as though I was an alien species. I even began questioning the wisdom of staying in my body.

I was coached to begin saying safety affirmations. I began with, “It’s safe to be in my body.” That felt surprisingly good, so I started branching out. “It’s safe to be who I truly am. It’s safe to speak my truth.” These really started encouraging me. Then finally I received the guidance from Archangel Gabriel, “It is safe to let your Light shine!”

This was a huge revelation, because I saw that in protecting myself I did not allow the true essence of my most Divine, authentic Self to radiate into the world. It does not matter what past-life history made me feel that it was not safe to show that most vulnerable side of me. It became most important for me to shift into allowing the true radiance of Divine Light to be expressed in the world through my being.

It has taken many years to do this. I wish I could say it was an immediate turnaround. Old patterns can take some time to let go of. However, what I discovered is that when I allowed myself to reveal and express my most authentic loving nature, the happier I became.

The times we are living in require us to open up into a greater realm of awareness. We need to remember that it is not only safe to let our Light shine, it is imperative to the evolution of consciousness on the Earth. The more Divine Light that shines into the world, the more the planet and all beings who share this world are elevated.

Divine Light carries the expression of the love and intelligence of God that we each need so urgently. In order for all to live in true Harmony and for Peace to prevail on Earth, please know that it is truly safe to let your beautiful Light shine! Here is my prayer for us all:

Divine Presence,

Thank you for assisting me to become a radiant Beacon of Divine Light in the world. May I relax into my true, most loving self and allow this Light of Pure Love to shine through me to others. May I truly know that Well-being is my only reality and that I am safe, because I am being carried by a Love that never ends. I know in my heart that I am being held in Wings of Divine Light as I share this time with others.

Help me to be the one who has the courage to smile first. May I be willing to walk through my world with an open heart. I ask to demonstrate loving-kindness no matter who I am interacting with.

May all beings know that we are truly connected as family. May all of humanity open their hearts to allow their most Eternal, Empowered, Authentic, Divine Nature to radiate Light and Love within and around them at all times. And may we also be powerful receivers, acting in Trust and Wisdom, as we allow ourselves to be filled with the greatest Light the world has ever known. So be it. Be it so. Amen.
