International Politics & Finance: China & Russia Teaming Up Again.
Our beloved cabal sure has made things tough for our government over the last few decades of deception and less than upstanding deals. This is evident as other countries are both tired of the US Corporation’s ways and, in my opinion, tired of being bullied around by them (aka, USA Inc.).
“[Russia and China] are deepening their trade ties against the backdrop of a shared distrust of the United States…. President Vladimir Putin and President Xi Jinping signed a raft of new trade deals in Moscow this month covering infrastructure, agriculture, and transport. They include a plan to boost Chinese bank lending to Russian firms by as much as $25 billion over 3 years.”
Of course, this comes as no surprise when considering BRICS: Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa, proving to be the fastest growing economic powers around the world. I do not believe BRICS has officially congregated as a political union, such as the European Union; however, they do enjoy certain advantages given their swift socioeconomic rise, their geopolitical place in the world, and their seemingly common distrust of USA Inc. Putin even signed a $100 billion reserve fund to specifically aid the BRICS nations.
As just highlighted, they can broker deals without much of the bureaucracy, mind games, and power plays associated when dealing with the US Corporation. Alexander Kliment, director at political risk consultancy Eurasia, said “China and Russia share a desire to erode U.S. power and bring about a ‘more multipolar world order.’ And both countries appear to be taking steps to reduce their dependence on Western sources of funding.”
The cabal continues to make decisions which serve their personal agendas, in turn, negatively affecting our lives at the everyday level, such as unemployment, suppressed technologies, and the illegalization of medical marijuana, for example. I trust their days are numbered, and a true freedom as we’ve never known on this planet is shortly around the corner, once they are removed from power. Blessed be.
Politics & Military: Over a Decade Later, Presidential Hopefuls Admit Iraq War a Mistake.
Do we want to claim, “Hindsight is 20/20,” or is it so obvious that it need not be iterated? Even in 2003, it seemed most obvious to people, who were able to see through the ruse, that this war, as most wars if not all, in my opinion, are excuses to invade other countries in order to claim possession of oil, gold, historic treasures, waterways, etc …and of course to hurt other people whom the attacker believes to be “different” from them.
War is sad, and pathetic, really. Please allow me a moment to honor and thank those servicemen and women who gave their lives, and of course to those who lived but have suffered in myriad ways as a result of that war: Thank you, again, for your bravery and sacrifices!
No matter how you slice it, people die in wars. Cities, countrysides, and homes are decimated; lives gone, and those who live are turned upside down, faced with rebuilding. Faced with emotional loss and grief so immense that I imagine it consumes many people. For what? Greed. Arrogance. Power. Money. Land. Mis-information. These qualities are not worth one human life, much less billions over the last few centuries alone!
Yet, though hard to fathom, war continues in pockets around our world. When will the human race get it? Isn’t it the fundamental belief that we fight wars in order to reach peace? Where is the peace? How long will the cabal continue their empty quest for total world domination, using terrorism as their latest ploy to start wars?
This story shares how many Presidential nominees (or potential nominees) have finally come to accept that the Iraq War should have never happened. Those who voted for it are back-pedaling and saying they were wrong. Now, if that is not HUGE evidence that our world is changing right before our very eyes, then I’m not sure what else to share that could be as convincing. Let’s recall that politicians hardly ever apologize on something like this, right?
Sure, if their actions were a personal choice, like causing an accident from drinking and driving, or having been caught cheating through an online dating service, then of course, the smart politicians will publicly apologize. But just as recently as one decade ago, we would have never heard our Congress admitting that they’d made a mistake, especially one that cost countless lives and colossal financial stress worldwide.
Thank goodness, integrity and conscientiousness are –slowly but surely– filling the hearts of our political candidates. Well, hmmm, am I giving them more than they deserve? Are they really becoming more heartfelt and shifting toward integrity, or are they simply getting more cunning and doing what the public wants them to do, by admitting that the Iraq War was a mistake? Well, at least we can hope, right?
Across this beautiful world, We Are All One.
