Ruble-yuan settlements will cut energy sales in US dollars – Putin

Doing away with the US dollar and switching to ruble and yuan payments will significantly increase Russia and China’s say in energy and financial markets, Vladimir Putin has said, adding that the first deals are already underway.

In short the President said the US dollar has no future, and that the ruble and the yuan have better long-term prospects.

“Payments in rubles and yuan are very promising. Switching to such a large-scale work means that the impact of the dollar on the global energy sector will objectively decline. This is not bad either for the global economy, or the world of finance and the world energy markets,” Putin said at the APEC Business Summit in Beijing Monday.

“It will help expand our capabilities in mutual trade and influence both world financial and energy markets," the president said.

Obama leaves for China, Myanmar, Australia tour

Obama left Washington in the pre-dawn hours en route to an air force base in Alaska, where his plane refueled before traveling on to Beijing.

The US leader was accompanied on his eight-day trip, which also includes visits to Myanmar and Australia, by his national security adviser Susan Rice and several other top aides.

The China leg of his trip will be dominated by Obama's meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing, where the White House said it expects "candid and in-depth conversations."

The relationship between the two superpowers, which US Secretary of State John Kerry has called the "most consequential" in the world today, has been marred by tensions over the South China Sea, cyberspying and human rights issues.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In this set of meetings here, Obama is doing what Obama does best; campaigning. But of course, it's not for votes; it's for certain financial opportunities and considerations, which he most likely will not get.

China is avoiding doing business transactions in the dollar, and this trend is not going to stop.

China has a trade surplus. As reported on 7 November, 2014 in businessinsider.com:

China recorded a better-than-expected trade surplus of $45.41 billion in October, customs said Saturday, but weaker export and import growth could be a worrisome sign for the world's second largest economy. October's trade surplus expanded 46.3 percent from the same month last year, exceeding market expectations for a $42.3 billion surplus, according to a survey of 11 economists polled by The Wall Street Journal.

The US has a trade deficit. As reported by AP on 4 November 2014:

The U.S. trade deficit rose in September as exports slumped, a sign that the world's biggest economy is starting to feel the impact of weakening global growth. The Commerce Department said Tuesday that the trade deficit rose 7.6 percent to $43 billion in September. That marks the first increase in four months. A deficit occurs when a country imports more than it exports. Economic slowdowns in Europe and China appear to have hurt demand for American-made goods. Since September, the dollar has appreciated in value more than 4 percent against the euro to $1.25, making U.S. products less competitively priced abroad. Exports fell 1.5 percent to $195.6 billion, led by declines in shipments of industrial supplies, consumer products and capital goods such as engines and computers.

And "...cyberspying and human rights issues" will be on the agenda?!?

Please.

As if the US government wasn't spying on China (and everyone else, apparently, after the revelations of NSAgate!!)

And after the Patriot Act, US torture of prisoners of war, the Homeland Security Act,the NDAA, and the way Americans are treated by police, Obama doesn't have much "wiggle room" on those two issues at all.

Beijing $40 billion offer to revive the historic Silk Road, starts Central-Asia geostrategic competition

Beijing says it will spend $40 billion to revive the historic Silk Road and connect China with Central Asia, the Middle East and Europe. Chinese President Xi Jinping said the ambitious project is designed to “break the connectivity bottleneck” in Asia.

The “Silk Road Economic Belt” initiative, announced by Xi Jinping in 2013, is designed to allow capabilities of Chinese state-controlled construction companies to further expand its already booming trade with central Asia and Europe by diversification of Chinese trade routes, lowering transportation costs, opening up new markets, and an expansion of the Chinese sphere of influence beyond Asia. It will also secure the supply of Uranium and rare metals from Central Asia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the Chinese government is able to get this process to succeed, it will be a remarkable feat.

I would suspect that long-term, strategic planners from all kinds of Russian and Chinese think tanks are already having consultations as to how and where these two countries could collaborate, probably easily eclipsing the US's plans for the region.

The economic, and trade ties would absolutely strengthen immeasurably between China and Russia, should they decide on practical collaboration here.

National Economic Suicide: The U.S. Trade Deficit With China Just Hit A New Record High

Did you know that we buy nearly five times as much stuff from the Chinese as they buy from us? According to government numbers that were just released, we imported 44.9 billion dollars worth of stuff from China in September but we only exported 9.3 billion dollars worth of stuff to them. And this is not happening because our economy is so much larger than China’s. In fact, the IMF says that China now has the largest economy on the entire planet on a purchasing power basis. No, the truth is that this is happening because our economy is broken. Every month, we consume far more wealth than we produce. Because the outflow of money is far greater than the inflow, we have to go to major exporting nations and beg them to lend our dollars back to us so that we can pay our bills. Meanwhile, the quality of the jobs in this country continues to go down and our formerly great manufacturing cities are rotting and decaying.

How The Petrodollar Quietly Died, And Nobody Noticed

Two years ago, in hushed tones at first, then ever louder, the financial world began discussing that which shall never be discussed in polite company - the end of the system that according to many has framed and facilitated the US Dollar's reserve currency status: the Petrodollar, or the world in which oil export countries would recycle the dollars they received in exchange for their oil exports, by purchasing more USD-denominated assets, boosting the financial strength of the reserve currency, leading to even higher asset prices and even more USD-denominated purchases, and so forth, in a virtuous (especially if one held US-denominated assets and printed US currency) loop.

British banker linked to gruesome Hong Kong slayings

A 29-year-old British banker has been arrested in Hong Kong in connection with the grisly murder of two women, a rare occurrence in a city known for its low homicide rate.

Hong Kong police said in a statement on Saturday that a 29-year-old foreign man had been detained earlier that day after two women were found dead in an expensive apartment in Wan Chai, a central city district known for its night life.

The man has not been charged.

Police declined to give the name or the nationality of the man, whom local media and a source with knowledge of the situation have identified as being a Bank of America-Merrill Lynch banker.

Chinese Billionaire Signs Deal for 100 year Takeover of Nicaragua’s New ‘Grand Canal’

Plans are afoot for a new Nicaraguan canal which that would dwarf the existing Panama Canal to its south, but the only problem is that the project will effectively partition central America’s largest lake.

Although the deal has been fast-tracked by the Ortega government, the local population do not support it at all, not least of all because the project will decimate Lake Nicaragua – the region’s most valuable natural resource.

Local residents are threatening nothing short of armed insurrection, if (or when) Chinese bulldozers show up: “There is going to be a massacre because we are not leaving our land, our lives, and we’ll fight for it until death.”

NEO – Hong Kong’s Umbrellas are ‘Made in USA’

William Engdahl brings us the real deal behind the protests in Hong Kong. Guess who? You are right, just another US color revolution with all the usual suspects participating.

The key stars are the National Endowment for Democracy (aka… Overthrows-R_US, the funder), and the National Democratic Institute, that handles the logistics.

We Cold War children grew up listening to our government tell us that what we are doing now was a bad thing when the Soviets were doing it. But now, when there is no Cold War, the US has picked up the expansionist model of the old Soviet Comintern’s world revolution mantra.

Turkey and China to mediate between Afghanistan and Pakistan

Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Sun Weidong said on Sunday the cooperation among China, Afghanistan and Pakistan would benefit the region and emphasized that building mutual trust and friendly consultations between these countries should be encouraged to promote cooperation.

He made these remarks in his keynote address on the opening day of China-Afghanistan-Pakistan trilateral dialogue here.

A collective regional approach toward countering issues and meeting challenges was emphasized by diplomats, scholars and researchers at the dialogue.

Thanking Pakistan-China Institute Chairman Senator Mushahid Hussain Sayed and German political foundation, Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS), Pakistan, Resident Representative Ronny Heine for jointly organizing the two-day international conference, Ambassador Weidong said both Afghanistan and Pakistan were close neighbouring countries and were good neighbours to China.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Regional dialogue here, to heal some of the wounds, and ratchet down the tensions, is far preferable to the kind of outside intervention (including extrajudicial assassinations) the US military has been providing here, and may form the basis of real cooperation between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

I wish this process luck.

Hong Kong leader claims ‘external forces’ are behind violent protests that have rocked the territory

Hong Kong's leader Leung Chun-ying has claimed that 'external forces' are behind the violent protests that have rocked the territory.

Chief Executive Leung said in a televised statement yesterday that he believes foreign powers are involved in the unrest, echoing accusations made by China.

But the students behind the pro-democracy protests firmly denied the claim, saying that Leung was 'just making it up'.

WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION FOUND IN HONG KONG

Mainland Chinese state-run media has been running editorials and opinion pieces to criticize the Umbrella Revolution in Hong Kong, with emphasis on the destruction the street occupations have brought to ordinary people.

The Umbrella Revolution has also been labeled as “Color Revolution” backed up by foreign forces, in particular, the United State. Pro-Beijing law makers passed a motion on October 10 demanding an investigation of the mobilization of the massive sit-in action under the Legislative Council?Powers and Privileges) Ordinance.

It's Starting: Russians and Chinese Are Ditching the Dollar and Europeans Are Using Renminbi in Their Reserves

From the throne of the world’s reserve currency, the Federal Reserve, with the power to print the US dollar, feels dangerously omnipotent.

They can get away with just about anything. For now.

The central bankers get to print dollars and spend them at current prices, before the stuff hits the wider market and diminishes its overall value.

And for the time being they don’t really face any consequences. The whole world just absorbs it. Other countries really have no other choice.

But they’re getting tired of putting up with this abuse, and the unrest is growing. New alliances are being made, this time to dethrone the dollar.

Just this week yet another currency swap agreement was made between the Chinese and Russian central banks. This time for 150 billion renminbi.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is not a question of IF the US dollar is going to fall and fail; it is a question of when.

And to attempt to prevent that, look for this country to enter into wars it most likely cannot possibly win, with an horrific cost in blood and money.

China, Russia Sign CNY150 Billion Local-Currency Swap As Plunging Oil Prices Sting Putin

One place where Russia has been hit the hardest as a result of tumbling oil prices, is the crashing currency, with the Ruble hitting new record lows against the USD on a daily basis. In fact, as Bloomberg reports, Russia has been forced to spend a whopping $6 billion in just the past 10 days to slow down the tumble of the RUB.

Russia’s central bank intervened in the past 10 days to stabilize the ruble, central bank Governor Elvira Nabiullina told lawmakers in Moscow today. The action, which comes as President Vladimir Putin orders a withdrawal of Russian forces from Ukraine’s border, has so far failed to halt the ruble’s decline amid a domestic foreign currency shortage stemming from sanctions. The cost of swapping rubles into dollars widened to a record.

China will use gold and gold pricing to force global currency reset

On Sept. 30, statistician and economist Dr. Jim Willie was a guest on the Caravan to Midnight radio show to talk about current financial, economic, and geo-political events. During his three hour interview, Dr. Willie stated that one of the purposes behind China's creation of the new Shanghai gold exchange is to eventually take over global price controls for the monetary metal away from the Comex, and then force a global currency reset by raising the price of gold to its true or actual value.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If the price of gold cannot be kept low, people will abandon the stock market and their savings accounts for the metal. Worse, the holders of gold commodities contracts will be unwilling to settle the contracts for the cash value if gold is heading up, and the sellers of those contracts, who printed and sold far more contracts than they have gold to cover, will default.

Home> InternationalJapan, US Revising Defense Plans With Eye on China

Japan and the United States are revising their mutual defense guidelines for the first time in nearly two decades to respond to China's military expansion and increase Japan's role in regional defense.

An interim report released Wednesday says the U.S. and Japan are pursuing a wider partnership that requires "enhanced capabilities and greater shared responsibilities."

The revision, the first since 1997, comes at a time of heightened Japan-China tensions over islands claimed by both countries in the East China Sea, as well as continuing concern about North Korea's missile and nuclear weapons development.

"What we need to address today is quite different from what we were aiming for in 1997," Koji Kano, a Defense Ministry official in the Japan-U.S. cooperation division, told reporters earlier this week. "The point is how Japan and the U.S. can respond better in the current environment."

China builds military airstrip on disputed island, reports state media

Beijing has completed a runway for military aircraft on a South China Sea island also claimed by Vietnam, state-run media reported, as it asserts its territorial claims in the area.

The newly built facility stretches across Woody Island, part of the Paracel chain, China’s Xinhua news agency said late Tuesday.

The Paracels are also claimed by Vietnam and Taiwan, and tensions between Beijing and Hanoi rose this year over Chinese construction and oil exploration there.

The runway is Beijing’s latest physical assertion of control in the area, two years after it declared a city named Sansha centered on Woody Island — known as Yongxing in Chinese — to administer vast swathes of the South China Sea.

Vital shipping routes run through the waters and they are believed to sit atop vast oil and gas deposits. Parts of the sea are also claimed by the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan.

IMF: China overtakes US as world’s largest economy

Chris Giles at the Financial Times flagged up the change. He also alerted us back in April this year that it was all about to happen.

Basically, the method used by the IMF adjusts for purchasing power parity, explained here.

The simple logic is that prices aren’t the same in each country: A shirt will cost you less in Shanghai than San Francisco, so it’s not entirely reasonable to compare countries without taking this into account.

Though a typical person in China earns a lot less than the typical person in the US, simply converting a Chinese salary into dollars underestimates how much purchasing power that individual, and therefore that country, might have. The Economist’s Big Mac Index is a great example of these disparities.

So the IMF measures both GDP in market exchange terms, and in terms of purchasing power. On the purchasing power basis, China is overtaking the US right about now and becoming the world’s biggest economy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the reason that we may well be looking at a major war between the US and China; it would be the US government's (ill-advised) attempt to put China's economic growth on hold.

Russia, China capable of defeating US in nuclear war: Prof. Fetzer

An eminent American political commentator says Russia and China are capable of defeating the United Sates in a nuclear war.

In an interview with Press TV on Monday, Professor James Henry Fetzer also said that Americans must wake up to the fact that a nuclear exchange would kill hundreds of millions of people.

He said, “The very idea that the United States should be concerned that Russia and China are giving every indication that they are not going to back down from American and Western encroachment in the Middle East and in Eastern Europe, is incredibly naïve on the part of any American authorities because we have been undertaking one provocative action after another.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even if the US "wins" a nuclear war with Russia and China, it will be by a thin margin and the difference will hardly be noticeable for ordinary people living in the rubble.

Is the U.S. Secretly Egging On Hong Kong Protesters?

The mass demonstrations in Hong Kong are dramatic, indeed. And given that Hong Kong has long enjoyed a more liberal existence under British rule, protests against a more authoritarian Chinese government (at least it used to be more authoritarian) are not entirely surprising.

But Chinese officials accuse the U.S. of egging on the protests.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course the US is behind this. If they can bring down the current Chinese government and replace it with one friendly to US interests, then BRICS will be destroyed before it goes active in January!

This continues a well-established practice by the United States of overthrowing democratically elected governments around the world and replacing them with US puppet rulers.

US steps up interference in China amid Hong Kong pro-democracy protests

The United States has stepped up its interference in China’s internal affairs, saying Washington “supports the aspirations of the Hong Kong people” amid continuing pro-democracy protests in the Chinese territory.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said on Monday Washington backs “universal suffrage in Hong Kong in accordance with the Basic Law and we support the aspirations of the Hong Kong people.”

Earnest said the legitimacy of Hong Kong’s chief executive will be greatly enhanced if he is elected by universal suffrage according to the Basic Law.

G-77, China condemn coercive sanctions against Iran

In a resolution issued on the sidelines of the 69th annual session of the UN General Assembly in New York on Friday, foreign ministers of the Group of 77 plus China for the first time explicitly rejected as unacceptable the imposition of unilateral economic sanctions against Iran.

Such sanctions would have adverse consequences on the development of the Iranian nation, the resolution said, calling for the immediate removal of the bans.

The illegal US-engineered sanctions on Iran have been imposed based on the accusation that Tehran is pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program.

China Accuses U.S. of Fomenting Hong Kong Unrest

The U.S. has certainly promoted regime change worldwide, often by using non-governmental organizations as front groups to funnel money to dissidents who will overthrow the government.

For example, USAID has been called the “new CIA”, and FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds told Washington’s Blog that the U.S. State Department is involved in many “hard power” operations, often coordinating through well-known “Non-Governmental Organizations” (NGOs). Specifically, Edmonds explained that numerous well-known NGOs – which claim to focus on development, birth control, women’s rights, fighting oppression and other “magnificent sounding” purposes or seemingly benign issues – act as covers for State Department operations. She said that the State Department directly places operatives inside the NGOs.

Edmonds also told us that – during the late 90s and early 2000s – perhaps 30-40% of the people working for NGOs operated by George Soros were actually working for the U.S. State Department.

HONG KONG PROTESTS PART OF HILLARY'S "CHINA WILL PAY" THREAT

Today's big story tells of a "spontaneous" student uprising and a horrible "crackdown" taking place in Hong Kong (part of China for past 20 years). As loyal readers of The Anti-New York Times are well aware of by now, yet unbeknown to most of the silly young University punks of Hong Kong, these types of protests are the clear handiwork of the CIA. The fact that factory workers have joined the students is further evidence that this is a "color revolution' maneuver.

For those curious why the Hong Kong protests over the weekend have sent shivers across the world’s capital markets, pushed the Hang Seng 2% lower, and impacted both European and US futures, not to mention leading to worries that China may get involved any second and result in another Tiananmen square event, the following clip from HK’s Apple Daily, taken by a drone, shows just how massive the demonstrations, which according to some estimates involved just why of 100,000 people, taking place in Hong Kong are.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The crowd doesn't look all that large. Certainly smaller than Egypt's revolution that ousted Mubarak. About the size of the manufactured crowds the US created in Iran in 2009 and Ukraine last January!

Hong Kong police prepared to escalate use of force against pro-democracy protestors

Police are prepared to use escalating levels of force to dislodge tens of thousands of pro-democracy protestors from the central business district of Hong Kong, says the son of a former senior official.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is feeling like another one in a long series of US-backed covert attempted overthrow of a foreign government. Since the end of WW2 the US has tried to covertly overthrow the governments of over fifty nations, succeeding about half the time. Successes include Iran in 1953 and Chile in 1973. Failures would include Iran in 2009, and I think at this point one could hardly call last January's overthrow of the elected government of Ukraine a stunning success!

Recent US military drills focus on possible war with China: Report

Stars and Stripes explained in a detailed report the Pentagon’s Air-Sea Battle concept during last week’s Valiant Shield exercise over the western Pacific Ocean.

The exercise with 18,000 US forces tested the concept, which is a set of tactics that blinds an enemy’s communications in space and cyberspace and destroys land- and sea-based weapons platforms, the report said.

It added that China is the only country in the Pacific with type of “anti-access, area-denial” capability that participants of the drills fought against.

Will Russia and China Hold Their Fire Until War Is the Only Alternative? — Paul Craig Roberts

Obama’s September 24 speech at the UN is the most absurd thing I have heard in my entire life. It is absolutely amazing that the president of the United States would stand before the entire world and tell what everyone knows are blatant lies while simultaneously demonstrating Washington’s double standards and belief that Washington alone, because the US is exceptional and indispensable, has the right to violate all law.

It is even more amazing that every person present did not get up and walk out of the assembly.

The diplomats of the world actually sat there and listened to blatant lies from the world’s worst terrorist. They even clapped their approval.

Official: Chinese Flotilla's Presence in Hormuzgan Waters Sign of Iran-China Alliance

"The presence of a Chinese navy flotilla in Iran's Southern port of Bandar Abbas is indicative of solidarity between the two nations and armies," Hormuzgan Governor General Jassem Jadari said in a meeting with the commanders and crew members of the Chinese navy flotilla in Bandar Abbas on Sunday.

He noted that Iran and China have closely cooperated in combat against pirates in the high seas in recent years, and said, "Hormuzgan province is of particular importance due to its strategic status and its location near the Strait of Hormuz and also the presence of flotillas of different countries in there."

The commander of the Chinese flotilla, for his part, said that his warships berthed at Bandar Abbas at the end of their mission for protecting trade ships against pirate attacks in a move to consolidate the friendly ties between the Chinese and Iranian nations and navies.

China forming plans to take away gold market and price discovery power from U.S.

Since the beginning of the year, and perhaps even going back to the end of the 2008 credit crisis, gold and silver markets in both London and the U.S. have seen a massive amount of manipulation by the bullion banks in an effort to protect the dollar and reserve currency at the same time the Federal Reserve began implementing the policies of ZIRP, QE, and direct monetizing of U.S. debt. This of course has led the spot price of gold in the physical, paper, and futures markets to become depressed so much that several global miners no longer are able to make a profit from excavating and refining the precious metals.

End Of Empire - The 'De-Dollarization' Chart That China And Russia Are Banking On

History did not end with the Cold War and, as Mark Twain put it, whilst history doesn’t repeat it often rhymes. As Alexander, Rome and Britain fell from their positions of absolute global dominance, so too has the US begun to slip. America’s global economic dominance has been declining since 1998, well before the Global Financial Crisis. A large part of this decline has actually had little to do with the actions of the US but rather with the unraveling of a century’s long economic anomaly. China has begun to return to the position in the global economy it occupied for millenia before the industrial revolution. Just as the dollar emerged to global reserve currency status as its economic might grew, so the chart below suggests the increasing push for de-dollarization across the 'rest of the isolated world' may be a smart bet...

And the country where according to the WSJ, China has deployed some 700 soldiers as part of a United Nations "peacekeeping" force, is South Sudan where the Chinese troops will help guard the country's embattled oil fields and protect Chinese workers and installations, a spokesman for the African nation's president said Tuesday.

Small wars loom large on China's horizon

Broad hints have been coming out of China that the country might start small-scale military strikes over disputed waters that are believed to hold rich energy reserves. The consequences of such endeavors would be tolerable to Beijing, international experts say.

Bitter territorial disputes China has with neighbors in the East and South China Seas have long grabbed media headlines. Virtually all countries in the region are involved in spats with China, from South Korea and Japan to the Philippines and Vietnam. In March alone, Beijing had verbal clashes with Seoul over a submerged rock; with Manila over the Philippines' plan to build a ferry pier; and with Hanoi over China's biggest offshore oil explorer's moves to develop oil and gas fields.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem, given today's geopolitical tensions and advances in technology, is that "small scale military strikes" can escalate out of control, creating an entirely different, and potentially unimaginable, outcome, from what they were engineered to do.

The pieces of a new strategic kaleidoscope in the Asia-Pacific region are starting to fall into place as allies and security partners of the United States seek to deter China from using or threatening force to achieve its expansive aims, particularly in the South China Sea, which forms the maritime heart of Southeast Asia.

A contingent of about 200 U.S. Marines will soon arrive in Darwin, northern Australia. They are the forerunners of a bigger force of up to 2,500 marines agreed in November by leaders of the two allies.

China overtakes US as world's largest grocery market

By 2015, the Chinese market is forecast to be worth £918bn compared to a US value of £675bn, says IGD.

"This rapid expansion has been fuelled by three main factors: rapid economic growth, population and rising food inflation," said IGD chief executive Joanne Denney-Finch.

U.S.-China Tensions Intensify Over Korean Crisis

North Korea has been blamed for the sinking of a South Korean warship in March that killed 46 sailors. Last month, Pyongyang announced it had a uranium enrichment program. And, just before Thanksgiving, North Korea launched an artillery barrage on a South Korean island, killing four people, including two civilians.

China has been encouraging the resumption of six-party talks involving North Korea and regional powers. But U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Jim Steinberg says Washington sees that as simply a reward for bad behavior.

Steinberg will lead an American delegation to China next week to talk with officials there about North Korea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note that this article never states that it was South Korea who started this,by their live firing exercises over disputed waters, to which North Korea responded with the shelling of this island.

But at least, next week, there will be talks between the US and China, and this may well be a hopeful sign.

Chinese Appetite For Gold Continues Unabated.

The Chinese appetite for gold continues unabated. Gold imports by China—the largest producer of the yellow metal in the world—is set to touch a record 260 tonnes for the year 2010, bullion dealers predicted on Thursday.

Already, the yellow metal import by China has increased five-fold for the last 10 months of 2010. By the end of November 30, the Chinese gold imports stood at 209 tonnes. In 2009, China had imported just 45 tonnes of gold, compared to the massive 350 tonnes of gold that rival India had imported in the same year. India is currently the largest gold importer and consumer in the world.

North Korea As Pretext: U.S. Builds Asian Military Alliance Against China And Russia

Washington is proceeding at a breakneck – an alarming – pace with plans to politically and militarily polarize East Asia, using the crisis on the Korean Peninsula to do so. Attempts by China and Russia to defuse the conflict and resume negotiations aimed at its peaceful resolution are being spurned by headstrong and reckless U.S. government and military officials.

Russia and China share borders with North Korea. The U.S. is a continent away. A new conflagration on the peninsula would directly affect the first two nations. America can exploit a renewal of hostilities to reinstall itself in the Asia-Pacific region and use proxies – Japan as much as South Korea – to accomplish that objective.

With top U.S. officials continuing to declare that help from China will be key in calming tensions between North and South Korea, President Obama is planning to call Chinese President Hu Jintao in the next few days to discuss the critical situation, according to senior administration officials.

The phone call will come just days after Obama held a bilateral meeting with Hu on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in Seoul, South Korea, where administration officials were quick to tout the fact that it was the seventh face-to-face meeting the two leaders have had since Obama took office.

Obama's agenda here is twofold. First, by shifting the focus from North Korea to China, he draws attention away from that provocation. Second, it is clear that between the G20, in which China refused to alter their currency when "ordered" to do so, and the dropping of the dollar in trade with Russia, that the war focus has shifted from Iran to China, with war with China being the convenenint excuse to erase the debts owed to China, and of course, that is easily worth the few million dead Americans such a war will cost, right President Pansy?

U.S. sends carrier to Yellow Sea for exercises near Korea

Chinese Maj. Gen. Zhu Chenghu told state-run media in July that "if the United States truly wants to take into account the overall interests of the Sino-U.S. relationship, then it must on no account send its USS Washington to the Yellow Sea." He called the area "sensitive."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Between the US debt owed to China, China's refusal to make their own people suffer to fix the US Government's self-imposed economic melt-down, and yesterday's announcement that Russia and China are dropping the dollar for bilateral trade, the US government has a strong motive to start a war with China and try to make it look like either China or China's client state North Korea's fault, in order to justify erasing those debts with bombs and the blood of young Americans. Just as the firing of shells into North Korea's waters was a provocation, the deployment of the USS George Washington into the Yellow Sea is a provocation. And I note that Popular Mechanics December magazine features a cover story about the Chinese "threat" to US aircraft carriers!

Crisis of Fiat Currencies: US Dollar Surpluses Converted into Gold

Something is going on that your government does not want you to know about. Very few journalists have written about it and little or nothing has appeared in the mainstream media. The story could be one of major stories of our time.

Western powers have tried to destroy gold as a backing for currencies for many years. Presently the major media won’t touch the story and that is understandable.

Something we have been writing about for years is the Shanghai Cooperation Organization known as SCO. Few have been listening and few have been interested in what their mission is and what they have been up to.

Nov 20 07:51

Who fed the tiger?

Missiles fired from the Chinese mainland could destroy five of the six major U.S. air bases in the Far East. So states a new report of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, adding:

"Saturation missile strikes could destroy U.S. air defenses, runways, parked aircraft, and fuel and maintenance facilities. Complicating this scenario is the future deployment of China's anti-ship ballistic missile, which could hold U.S. aircraft carriers at bay outside their normal operating range."

Opposite Taiwan, China's missile force has reached 1,600.

Beijing is also building rockets, submarines and surface fleets to extend her dominance out to the third chain of islands, enabling the People's Liberation Army to strike U.S. carriers and bases as far away as Guam.

Encircling Russia, Targeting China, NATO'S True Role in US Grand Strategy

Israel’s aggressive stance toward its regional neighbors would be a serious liability for NATO, apt to be dragged into wars of Israel’s choosing which are by no means in the interest of Europe.

However, there is one subtle strategic advantage in the Israeli connection which the United States seems to be using… against Russia.

By subscribing to the hysterical “Iranian threat” theory, the United States can continue to claim with a straight face that the planned missile shield is directed against Iran, not Russia. This cannot be expected to convince the Russians. But it can be used to make their protests sound “paranoid” – at least to the ears of the Western faithful. Dear me, what can they be complaining about when we “reset” our relations with Moscow and invite the Russian president to our “Strategic Concept” happy gathering?

US panel lashes out at China

n a much-anticipated report, the US-China Economic and Security Review commission has accused Beijing of deceptive economic practises, effectively reigniting the two countries' spat over currency and trade issues.

Presenting its findings to the US Congress, the congressional advisory panel has recommended the Obama administration to take tougher actions against what it calls China's policy of keeping its currency undervalued.

On Wednesday, the commission said that China is creating global imbalances and using "market access-limiting practises" that fall outside its World Trade Organisation commitments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This a petulant President's revenge for not getting what he wanted out of the G20 conference.

China is not to blame for the US's financial woes: our current domestic, foreign, and banking policies have brought us to the place we are now.

China has an enviable surplus: the US government may well collapse, choking under the weight its own deficit.

Jobs have been allowed by this government to be offshored, creating a huge unemployment problem in this country.

Those people who, legitimately, qualified for a mortgage when they got it, but are now without work, cannot keep up the payments, so houses are foreclosed on, and these people are now both jobless and homeless.

You have a situation where he banks have deliberately oversold those mortgages to the point where no one really knows exactly who holds the title.

Obama has continued an endless cycle of costly wars, with the situations in Afghanistan and Iraq going horrendously badly; yet, we are also at war in Pakistan, and soon, Yemen.

The only people actually "winning" in these situations are the defense contractors, who provide mercenaries, supplies and logistics, and the drug lords.

Did the Chinese government do anything to cause any of the above to happen?!? Not at all.

The US government is desperately attempting to deflect blame from the fact that it is US governmental policies which have wreaked havoc on the lives of the American people, not the Chinese government.

China Telecom rejects US hijack claims

A leading Chinese telecommunication company has rejected the US claims implicating the firm for some temporary redirecting of sensitive Internet traffic on US websites.

China Telecom, one of the country's major telecommunications operators, rejected US claims that its servers "hijacked" highly sensitive Internet traffic for 18 minutes on April 8 on American government and military websites, AFP reported on Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More gratuitous China-bashing and rather lame since there is no reason for such sensitive US traffic to even leave the US networks let alone route through Chinese servers. Since the "great revolt" that transformed the ARPAnet into the Internet, the military has set up a parallel network of their own, which for obvious reasons is not connected to the global internet. So this story was a non-starter, to begin with

While such measures may be considered as last resort by Beijing, if implemented, impact on corporate earnings could be quite negative. “Higher resource prices may force authorities to turn to price controls rather than tighten policy.

Mongolia's "Color Revolution" & Banker Colonization

As the bipolar Cold War system ended, a transitory phase of globalization was initiated in order to pave the way for global governance.

The color revolutions of the 21st century were a highly sophisticated method of transforming nation states into such a world system.

Mongolia experienced the draft form of color revolution in its "Red Rose Revolution" in the 1990's. The sparsely populated country was easier to manipulate due to its corrupt politics and post-Communist identity crisis.

As with many buffer states, Mongolia regarded it as beneficial economically, geo-strategically and security-wise to cooperate with larger powers such as the U.S. [1]

Beyond being a goodwill ambassador for ten days, Obama is seeking sales of American-made durable and consumer goods, weapons deals, an expansion of trade, green energy cooperation, and the maintenance of a geopolitical balance in the region favorable to the United States. Just as the decline of the American economy hobbled him at home, however, the weakness of the United States on the world stage in the aftermath of Bush-era excesses has made real breakthroughs abroad unlikely.

Chinese Missiles Could Close U.S. Bases in Attack, Report Says

The Chinese military’s non-nuclear missiles have “the capability to attack” and close down five of six major U.S. Air Force bases in South Korea and Japan, an unpublished government report says.

China’s improved inventory of short- and medium-range missiles provides a “dramatic increase” in its ability to “inhibit” U.S. military operations in the western Pacific, according to excerpts from the draft of the 2010 annual report by the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission scheduled for release on Nov. 17.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a media roundtable in Melbourn, Australia, Monday, according to a transcript released by the Pentagon, Tuesday. "They aren't owned by Korea. They're international waters in which we have and many other countries have sailed forever. My expectation is we'll continue to do that."

The United States says Beijing holds its yuan currency artificially low against the U.S. dollar and argues it should be allowed to rise to aid U.S. exports and jobs.

Here’s a finding that will have any red-blooded American spluttering into his cornflakes. According to the Conference Board, a highly respected economic research association, China will overtake the US as the world’s biggest economy by 2012, or within two years.

OK, so in dollar terms, that’s obviously not going to be the case. It will be a lot longer than two years before China overtakes the US on that measure. But in terms of purchasing power parity, according to the Conference Board’s latest world economic outlook, China is already nearly there, and by 2020 will have reached a size of output which is nearly half as big again as the US.

Something else the United States used to be able to do but cannot any longer.

Does anyone here comprehend what the future would be like had we taken that $14 trillion poured over Wall Street to save them from the derivatives disaster of their own making and instead spent it on research into new technology, new products, and new industry? We would have Thorium reactors, photonics, fusion both hot and cold, cheap desalinization, hydrogen technology, Maglevs, SSTs; in short a clean 21st Century world and a non-petroleum energy base. We would not have to wage world wars over oil and water.

But apparently in the eyes of the US Government, still mired in the mindset of the mid-20th Century, your money and future indebtedness were better spent keeping billionaires in their mansions, instead of throwing them in jail with Bernie Madoff-with-the-loot!

In these angry political times, Democrats and Republicans agree on next to nothing. China is one exception. Democrats and Republicans alike are accusing each other of cozying up to Beijing and backing policies that send U.S. jobs and IOUs to the world's second-largest economy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

China is not the problem for America's financial woes.

Governmental policies which make offshoring of jobs financially attractive, is a big part of the problem.

Congress needs to incentivize corporations to keep good-paying jobs here.

To fund the illegal and immoral wars without end it is conducting, the Federal government has borrowed like a drunken sailor. It is high time to defund these wars, and focus on improving infrastructure here at home.

The Fed needs to be disbanded, and the US government needs to create and control the money, and money supply here in the US.

All of these steps, taken together, could make a major difference in the lives of this country's citizens: bashing China for the US government's self-inflicted wounds of bad policy decisions, domestically and internationally, will do nothing to remedy the situation at all.

China’s government can direct its banks to advance credit in the national currency as needed, because it owns the banks. Ironically, the Chinese evidently got that idea from us. Sun Yat-sen was a great admirer of Abraham Lincoln, who avoided a crippling national debt by issuing debt-free Treasury notes during the Civil War; and Lincoln was following the lead of the American colonists, our forebears. We need to reclaim our sovereign right to fund the common wealth without getting entangled in debt to foreign creditors, through the use of our own government-issued currency and publicly-owned banks.

Tianhe-1a kicks an American computer out of the top spot. The Jaguar supercomputer built by Cray at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in Oak Ridge, Tennessee is now only the world's second most powerful computer.

Globalization Creates Unemployment: American Job Loss Is Permanent

The correct conclusion is that the US trade deficit with China is the result of “globalism” or jobs offshoring, not Chinese currency manipulation.

An important point always overlooked is that the US is dependent on China for many manufactured products including high technology products that are no longer
produced in the US. Revaluation of the Chinese currency would raise the dollar price of these products in the US. The greater the revaluation, the greater the price rise. The impact on already declining US living standards would be dramatic.

When US policymakers argue that the solution to America’s problems is a stronger Chinese currency, they are yet again putting the burden of adjustment on the out-of-work, indebted, and foreclosed American population.

The Number One U.S. Export To China: Waste Paper And Scrap Metal

Historians tell us that by the very end of the Roman Empire, goods were pouring into Rome from all over the known world, but about the only thing being sent out of Rome was human waste and garbage. America has not yet reached that point, but we are certainly well on our way. In 2010, the number one U.S. export to China is "scrap and trash". Yes, you read the correctly. The number one thing that China buys from us is our garbage. According to author Clyde Prestowitz, China's number one export to the U.S. is computer equipment (nearly $50 billion) while our number one export to them is waste paper and scrap metal (approximately $8 billion).
