Donald Trump Concludes Momentous Visit to Asia, Opening New Era of Cooperation with China

In some ways, Donald Trump’s Nov. 5-14 visit to Asia was truly historic. After the U.S. President had consolidated good working relations with Japan’s Shinzo Abe and South Korea’s Moon Jae-in on the first part of his journey, his “state visit plus” to China was a high point, followed by attendance at the APEC, ASEAN and East Asia summits, coupled with state visits to the two host countries, Vietnam and the Philippines.Hier   weiterlesen

Strategically, All Eyes Are on Trump Visit to China

The most important strategic intervention at this point in time is undoubtedly Donald Trump’s trip to Asia, which takes him to five countries in Asia, and includes attendance at three summits, over the period Nov. 5-14. The most momentous event should be the talks between the U.S. President and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping, who just united the Communist Party of China behind his Belt and Road Initiative at the 19th Congress of the party.Hier   weiterlesen

China Is Not Our Enemy, Asserts White House Chief of Staff John Kelly

For the past year, since the election of Donald Trump to the U.S. Presidency, the Anglo-American “deep state”, and their media, have been feverishly working to undermine Donald Trump’s oft-stated intention to improve relations with Russia and China. But it hasn’t worked so far.Hier   weiterlesen

Kooperation USA-China-Rußland kann der Geopolitik ein Ende setzen

Die Präsidenten der drei wichtigsten Nuklearmächte der Welt arbeiten intensiv daran, die Beziehungen zwischen ihren Nationen zu verbessern und auf eine solide Basis der Kooperation im gegenseitigen Interesse zu stellen. Das sollte eigentlich von allen vernünftigen und friedliebenden Menschen überall auf der Welt begrüßt werden, aber in Europa und in den USA schmähen die Mainstream-Medien Donald Trump, Wladimir Putin und Xi Jinping als gefährliche vermeintliche oder tatsächliche Diktatoren und im Fall des US-Präsidenten als geistig instabil.Hier   weiterlesen

Putsch in Washington: Special Counsel Mueller Under Fire from Congressmen

Nineteen U.S. Congressmen have drafted a letter demanding an investigation into the activity of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is spearheading the drive to contain or remove President Donald Trump from power, based on the absurd allegations that his election was the result of Russian operations directed by President Putin. The letter was addressed to Senator Chuck Grassley, Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Rep. Bob Goodlatte, Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, both Republicans.

Puerto Rico: Could Donald Trump Deploy the “Debt Bomb”?

After visiting Puerto Rico which had been devastated by the hurricanes, President Trump suggested that the island’s debt should be “wiped out”.  Immediately, Wall Street went into a panic mode and the mainstream media spouted that a.) he can’t do it; b.) he doesn’t know what he’s talking about; and c.) Cabinet members are “walking back” his comments. But they all missed the most obvious point — which is that there is no way that Puerto Rico can pay back the debt!  Trump is right, it must be written-off.Hier   weiterlesen
