That appears to be the emerging reality in the wake of Zhou’s shambolic trip to the Middle East, and further disasters upon his return (does he have cancer, or is it just his dementia? Who knows—does it matter?). But to frame this in positive rather than negative terms, what we are seeing is a seemingly unstoppable process of Eurasian integration on both the energy/commercial level as well as on the international security level. And Russia is the driver in this process that is marginalizing Europe, which is descending into continuing rounds of regime change under the tutelage of Davos.
Now you've gone and done it, Mark. You have pulled the curtain away to reveal the ugly realities we face. I would take issue with the implication that the parties calculated what has happened and would suggest one thing lead to another. Trump did not abandon the White House, and he would much rather the steal had never taken place. Knowing full well that certain excesses in our economy would have to be corrected and knowing full well that this would cause much pain to the American public, he would rather have managed this gradually to minimize the effects. Now he is sitting back awaiting the shambles when everything collapses, and is then ready to step in if the public so desires. The Uniparty, for their part, following their Global masters and being well paid in the process, saw an opportunity for a takeover of the American government, and now are becoming increasingly authoritarian both to solidify their control and to prevent any reckoning for their past misdeeds. Any legitimate American government would have prosecuted at least a handful of the egregious allegations of election fraud, and if they cleverly instigated a 'Reichstag fire' insurrection on January 6, they would have buried it and not be conducting sham one-sided 'trials', while denying habeas corpus and humane treatment to detainees who were invited into the Capitol by the police.
As for specific points I disagree on, it will not take a decade to root out the corruption. When we hit the iceberg and things collapse, a regime change exposes those currently in power to all sorts of criminal charges, and there will be a rush of those involved looking to plea bargain. Blackrock may be in charge of the current White House, but Trump was in charge of the Trump White House. Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan profited by the triumph of real capitalism, as did the American public. It was not only Russian top military brass and American generals who had weekly conference calls, but diplomacy was carried on with even countries perceived as enemy, such as North Korea. Love your suggestion that "Davos actually wants to break up the US." Also "Davos overplayed their hand." SCOTUS and the Fed are starting to resist. So must we. AS you say, Americans have a lot to look forward to. Did any of us ever want Empire? We will have a place in a New World Order that does not include Davos or Democrats.
The corruption in the US is one of it's greatest weaknesses. Being the world hegemon is another. Britian gave up hegemony to the US, but it's bankers held sway over US bankers and Wall Street has controlled US foreign policy and the Deep State since Wilson.
These regional powers like India and Brazil will align with Russia and China today, just to resist the US empire. India and Brazil will also play their own game and not get locked into a permanent alliance.
Even Russia doesn't want a permanent alliance with China, because it wants to be a top tier power in the end and not China's toy.
He's "got Covid " 50/50 they off him, but not before they get his signature on a bunch of "Emergency Climate" EO's. This way, they are rid of him and can force another lockdown before November because 'look how dangerous Covid is now'. That forces mail in voting (cheating) for November and then they are off and running with the unchallenged EO's and what's left of our Bill of Rights, because... do it for Joe and the "The Science". Agenda21 back on track, plebes. After the last two years, do you think they won't?
Great article, as usual, Mark. I'm European, so I guess I'll have to invest in a pair of brown trousers! There seems to be hope for everyone except us! I was intrigued by the statement that "the Trump administration may have made a calculated step of vacating the WH in spite of the fraud, because this crisis was a mathematical certainty." I've come round to thinking that too. Trump's econ figures were pretty good but the massive underlying problems meant that it couldn't last. Why not indeed left Biden and the evil Dems take the wrap? If this goes on (and it will), they won't be electable for decades. As for the Euros' actions against Putin, I say again: What. Were. They. Thinking?
