Ultimately, we’re looking at a unipolar world with China at the helm. The West is committing suicide.

But that’s okay.

RT:

Current attempts to push for a unipolar world “have taken an absolutely ugly form lately, which the overwhelming majority of nations of the planet find unacceptable,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday.

The remark came as he met his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping on the sidelines of the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in Samarkand, Uzbekistan.

Russia and China “stand together for a just, democratic, multipolar world order based on international law and the central role of the UN, and not on some rules that somebody invented and attempts to impose on others without even explaining what they are,” Putin said.

roflmao.

Putin is so great.

These people have literally not even explained the rules – but they keep saying “rules” over and over!

The administration of US President Joe Biden has been using the phrase “rules-based world order” to describe the way it prefers the world to operate.

During the meeting, Putin thanked Xi for China’s balanced stance on the crisis in Ukraine. China has criticized Russia for having attacked the country, but blamed the US for triggering the escalation by its push to expand NATO.

Putin also reiterated Russia’s support of the ‘one China’ policy and Beijing’s claim of sovereignty over the island of Taiwan. The Chinese government has accused the US of undermining its territorial integrity by increasingly treating Taipei as a separate nation rather than a self-governing part of China.

Putin praised the SCO as “a forum for constructive and creative cooperation.” He remarked that the members of the group have different cultural traditions, economic models and foreign policy priorities. Their willingness to work together as equal partners respecting each other has helped bolster the SCO’s prominence in a relatively short period of time, the Russian leader remarked.

“It is now the biggest regional organization in the world, uniting a vast geographic space and about half of our planet’s population,” Putin stressed.

Yeah, and Iran is going in big.

RT:

Iran has signed a memorandum paving the way to transition from its current observer status to full membership in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

The Middle-Eastern nation, which the US has long sought to undermine with diplomatic isolation and economic sanctions, made a formal step on Thursday to become the ninth member of the organization. Among the SCO’s heavyweights are Russia and China, two major powers that are on Washington’s list of geopolitical opponents.

The SCO was created in 2001 as an intragovernmental forum aimed at fostering trust and developing economic and humanitarian ties in Asia.

It currently has eight permanent members: China, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Pakistan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. The last is currently hosting the annual summit of the leaders of the member states in the city of Samarkand.

India is going over that way. If Saudi Arabia joins, the dollar will probably just collapse.

What the West is doing obviously doesn’t make sense from an America First perspective. But the shocking thing is that it doesn’t make any sense from a Jews First perspective.

What the hell is the plan here, even?

Sino-Friendship is unstoppable.

    China has no interest in “helming” the world or really being a pole for it at all. Don’t project your native western or Roman imperialism onto Han, they don’t have that insecurity.

    and the central role of the UN

    Please tell me this is about politicians lying. Smokescreens and dogwhistles…right? Right?
    Otherwise this is a nuclear /headdesk moment.

    The UN is still in New York, right? It didn’t sneak off to Beijing or Moscow while I wasn’t looking?
    (“Oh yeah dude the UN totally took 100 in stealth.” “So you’re saying…watch out for backstabs.”)

    not on some rules that somebody invented and attempts to impose on others without even explaining what they are

    You can really tell Putin isn’t English. Nailing someone for failing to follow a rule you didn’t tell them about is the most British thing imaginable. If you’re a native it’s not even slightly surprising – you know there’s secret rules you have to investigate before they bite you in the ass, because duh, you’re dealing with Englishmen.

    Lately one of the big problems is that the secrets are so gauche. “You call this hidden? Sad. Lame.”

    What the hell is the plan here, even?

    A Hunter Biden First perspective.
    Although not literally true, mythologically speaking the whole war in Ukraine is about making sure Hunter’s kickbacks don’t collapse and make his line go down.
    Or, equivalently, letting Nuland or whoever off her leash so she starts a war in Ukraine is about collapsing Hunter’s kickbacks because fuck that guy.

    After all, once Hunter loses his contacts, you can go and snap them up, now can’t you?

    Perfidious Albion is not just a meme. Don’t plot against the English, they’ll fuck you up.

    Now if only they could rest on their laurels instead of meddling with the rest of the world. It’s not worth it, you idiots.

    P.S. Sadly the Russians are not entirely immune to that idiotic imperialism thing.
    Russians are great. Very entertaining. Best comedians anywhere, for example. Just not as neighbours, though. You don’t want to live in the house next door, nor the country next door. Shall we say, they can’t keep their awesomeness contained on their side of the property line.

    Of course they can’t explain it because they make up the hypocritical, self-serving rules as we go along: Taiwan is not part of China but Crimea is part of Ukraine; Russia can’t invade Ukraine but the U.S. can invade Iraq, Syria, etc.; Iran can’t have nukes but Israel can; etc.

    I’m glad you asked. What the “West” is doing makes no sense from any “worldly” perspective IMO; it only makes “sense” from a Satan first perspective.

    Apparently “the plan” is to achieve the goal set forth in Isaiah 14:13,14. IOW the West is run by a cult of demon-possessed, devil-worshiping theistic Satanists who’ve launched a spiritual war against all of humanity, seeking to proselytize the whole world for Satan. That is, they seek to foster decadence and corruption everywhere on earth, thus proving that evil triumphs over good – and therefore evil is good – and God is usurped by Satan, or something like that. And every nation that cannot be deceived, corrupted and manipulated into destroying itself (e.g. Russia, China, Iran) must be destroyed by other means.

  5. Neither Xi nor Putin are flooding their nations with low-IQ immigrants from third-world nations. By any standard China has a national socialist government. Compare Russia and China and their leaders to the cabal that runs the US. It’s a no brainer who the evil people are.

    It is hard to understand what part of this Anglin thinks is either good or believable.

    It is just silly.

    – “just”. “democratic.” “rules.” disingenous sociopaths say what?

    – is “multipolar” goverment supposed to be an improvement on “bi-polar” government?

    – is rule through the UN a good thing? Should UNESCO be setting school curricula perhaps? Racemixing and Sodomy for preschoolers, perhaps? Should everybody in the world vote in US elections or have the right of abode in the USA? Should the borders of all White countries be dissolved? Is global warming not a fraud? Can WHO shoot me full of even more untested vaccines, please?

    – democratic? Like China today? Or like the USA today? Or like the European parliament, a rubber stamp for the European Council.

    – international law? Do I get to vote on that? Do they want my guns? Do I have to live in a dog kennel and eat grasshoppers?

    When did Anglin become a rainbow flag-waving globalist?

    Rational people who want to have families and live among their own people want less centralized government, not more. They want local, direct democracy, not representatives of representative democracies sipping champagne at international forums on how to reduce the global pleb burden.

    Perhaps this is Anglin doing his “Just joking folks” routine, but if it is, somebody should let him know it isn’t funny.

    China is not a national socialist government. It is a CCP kleptocracy and re-establishment of a noble families system.

    The top ranks of the CCP are incredibly wealthy and their children are famously pampered princelings.

    Hitler never received even a salary. His only income was from sales of Mein Kampf, which income he donated to myriad good causes.

    The USA will need to resort to a FALSE FLAG event to jump-start the long-desired war. Maybe along the lines of the Naval Incidents that ignited the Vietnam war, or World War I. Sink one or two destroyers ready to retire. Then launch a preemptive strike against China.

    The “news” media will have a glorious time.

  12. anonymous[403] • Disclaimer says:

    Try to imagine a world in which the United States and Israel cannot bully/murder/torment their way into greater power, because the world collectively stands up against it. There is safety in numbers. As more and more nations turn to China and Russia, the pressure on the United States empire becomes enormous. Sure, the John Boltons of the world, and the sayanim, can demand the whole world get blown up, but there are enough strong adversaries that the US faces profound danger by doing so. The US no longer has the legitimacy to lead. Slowly but surely, the US is being encircled. It can go out and do the All-American thing and kill a bunch of foreign civilians in a false flag operation or “wet op”, but eventually the fires it started abroad are going to start burning at home. The decline of the US is long overdue, but what a damning indictment of the globalists who run it. And the American people deserve all that comes with the great fall, because they loved it when the US was slaughtering millions around the globe because that meant cheaper gas at home and special prerogatives to be assholes when they traveled abroad. The Americans are going to have start acting like members of the global community, and I believe it will happen in our lifetimes.

    Yes, but it makes sense from a Satanic perspective, and that’s exactly the influence that these creatures are under.

    Israel is only the nominal capital of Satanism. It still plays second fiddle to those who seek global hegemony through the fiat Ponzi scheme — a dominant global currency that they seek to control. And that’s the perspective through which what they’re doing makes sense.

    Are they literally Satanists? Or are they simply psychopathic materialists? Or did they turn to Satanism when their (ongoing) psychotic materialism blew up in their faces? Does it matter?

    What really matters about ((them)) is that they’re evil, and hell-bent salvaging their totalitarian quest, because it’s all they have anymore. Godliness, grace, moral authority, integrity… all those long ago slipped from their grasp. Zionism is merely a symbol of their moral vacuum; their problems are much bigger than just their ((Jew)) wing.

    However, their problem can be identified and grasped by the average plebe through their ((Jew)) wing, just as ((Judas)) became a symbol of epic treachery, greed, and betrayal known the world over. So too, Israel is now known the world over for all the wrong reasons.

    There was an English plot to make everyone think they need to plot like the English, instead of leaning into their own strengths. Worked great, and now everyone is trying to out-lie Satan, even other Englishmen.

    While I don’t want to live next to a Russian, Russia should flatly ban all Englishmen from Russia. Not even joking, when an Englishman shows up and asks to be let in, it should be official State policy to punch them right in the face.

    I dunno if you’ve ever noticed, but Englishmen can’t take a punch. Almost all of them go all “wtf I can’t even” and bluescreen. (It leads to a perverse fascination with boxing and boxers.)

    As he sits there dazed and confused on the ground, the punched Limey will naturally start spewing all sorts of bullshit. As always with Satan, you’ll be tempted to listen. “Huh, maybe he has a point?” Yeah, don’t. Just have someone drag the asshole far enough away that you can’t hear him anymore.

    Of course just as not every Muslim is a terrorist, not every Englishman is perfidious. However, just as at some point it’s not worth letting Muslims in because they keep knifing folk or blowing themselves up, trying to sift through Englishmen is not worth your time.* Just use a blanket ban.

    That has been a problem all along, the fact that the enemies of the West have not been united in response to obvious hostilities directed against them. The West has been united and striking more or less as a fist (with the French sometimes a little reluctant to go along with some operation) while all those they target just sit around waiting to be taken out in turn. Even when the Arabs were told how many of their nations would be taken out they did not unite to stand a better chance of resisting the planned attacks. And so it continues.

For the record, however, I am not yet prepared to completely write off the Hunter Biden diagnosis for explaining, at least in part, the administration’s insistence on patently flouting a dozen or so widely recognized markers of non-belligerency in the current (((Ukrainian))) unpleasantness.

    I am not, of course, suggesting that Witless Joe makes any relevant command decisions within the present ruling clique, but with Doctor Jill pushing and Hunter and all the Jewish in-laws pulling, the (((jerks))) who constitute Joe’s real brain and mouth must see that forgoing a quarrel over the family’s regular mere million or so bucks a month from Hunter’s Ukrainian grift might work out well for (((them))) in the long run.

    Desperation makes folk do dumb things.

    The pie is shrinking but demand for a slice of the pie is growing. This causes infighting.

    Whether the Ukraine thing was a misplay or if it was a Biden rival deliberately screwing them over, the threat of suddenly losing all that grift territory is a red alert situation. Causes desperate infighting.

    I expect the Biden family, or more precisely their shadowy masters, are indeed taking the actions that are best for the Bidens, but they’re in a losing situation so it’s merely draining America as a whole for ultimately no benefit to anyone. The Biden rival may be seeing their line go down as a result of damage to America, but as long as the Bidens’ line is going down faster, they consider the strategy to be working for them.

    Alternatively the Bidens are in fact dumb storm troopers and are supposed to have shadowy masters to keep them from doing dumb things, but they died of covid or whatever and they were so shadowy even the Bidens haven’t noticed yet. There’s a bunch of messengers pretending the local emperor isn’t dead. Biden’s rivals are more than happy to watch him thrash his way to death rather than stepping in and trying to stop him from taking American down with him.

    In a tribute to his Rabbi “Lord Sacks” Prince Charles quotes Isaiah 49:6.

    “Yea, He saith, ‘It is too light a thing for you to be My servant, to establish the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the scions of Israel, and I shall submit you as a light unto the nations, to be My salvation until the end of the earth’.  

    “Light to the nations (Hebrew: אור לגויים, romanized: Or la’Goyim;) is understood by many Zionists to express the universal designation of the Israelites as mentors for spiritual and moral guidance for the entire world.

    My guess is that the current British Royal family is the stand-in for the biblical “Jewish King David” line.

    According to the Talmud, in order to fulfil the prophecy of the arrival of the Jewish Messiah, there must be a Jewish King. Hence, Prince Charles who is now King Charles III fulfills the prophecy.

    The bigwigs are notoriously inbred because they are quite deliberate in seeking to mate with other people of Norman French descent.

    That’s why the muckers are brave and a bit violent, and the bigwigs are high-V and “non-agreement capable” because of their contempt for the muckers (which is just a specific case of their contempt for anyone who isn’t them).

    UK bigwigs have been reneging on agreements – treaties, contracts and the like – since Elizabethan times (the 17th century Elizabeth – not that old part-German lady who died recently).

    A question with no confrontational intent: Have you read any of the Bond novels? If you have, what was your reaction to them—specifically, as fictional entertainment?

    I ask largely because I was bored silly by Casino Royale when I tried to read it in college sixty years ago, and I gave up after thirty pages at most. I had buddies who devoured them all, however. When in the eighties I discovered that Evelyn Waugh, Graham Greene, and Anthony Powell were all (1) Fleming’s friends and (2) fans of the Bond books, you could have knocked me over with a feather. All three of them loathed the “middle-class” critics who complained of the utter amorality of both Bond and the storytelling. Class loyalty? Scribbler-fraternity loyalty?

    Powell writes in his memoirs that Fleming’s primary motivation was his need for money, in part because of his expensive habits and in part because, like many other members of the English aristocracy, he owned a lot of property whose upkeep was far beyond his means, but he didn’t want to sell out to Jews or Americans.

    I wonder whether Powell was thinking of Fleming’s plight when he created the character of the penniless but property-burdened Lord Warminster (Erridge Tolland), the eventual brother-in-law of Nick Jenkins, the narrator and focus of A Dance to the Music of Time, the novel series Powell began writing at the same time Fleming began writing the Bond books. None of Powell’s characters, however, has a WWII espionage or war-hero background similar to that of Fleming or his brother Peter.

    When the japs invaded China mainland, they brought with them their Korean henchmen, who behaved even MORE atrocious than the japs themselves. That the Chinese avoid blaming the Koreans directly today is because:

    1. Invading China was not their own intention. It was the japs who brought them there.

    2. There were Koreans who fought shoulder to shoulder with CCP guerrillas against the jap aggressors in Northeast China.

    Yet, today there are Koreans who choose to take the side of the japanol-murrikan axis against China, which, they probably believe– like the right-wing japs do– are only entitled to taking abuses from them and their white masters.

    The US-led globalization which started in the 1980s had benefited Wall Street the most as the tax-free profits from ‘outsourcing’ manufacturing and services industries to lower-cost developing countries were shifted to offshore tax havens. This business model is no longer economically viable as sky-high USD debts piled up from four decades of debt-fueled spending runs its course. With the final completion of the NS2 gas pipeline project between Russia and Germany as well as the expected ratification of the EU-China investment treaty in 2022, the EU would have seen its economy integrated with Russia + China into an Eurasian economic bloc using its own Euro currency. That Eurasian continent-wide Eurozone would have turned into the world’s largest economic bloc by displacing the USD debt-fueled globalized economy. That’s the impetus behind the Ukraine Crisis which the USA instigated to destroy the EU economy and kill its Euro currency in order to prop up its own USD as the world’s dominant reserve currency.

    The USA needs foreign buyers of its USD debts which has gone up while foreign holdings of its USD debts have gone down:

    The USA wants to ‘f-ck the EU’ by forcing Europeans to buy USD debts in exchange for their EU assets. The best way to do that is to deflate EU asset prices by imposing US sanctions against Russia, thereby forcing Europeans to use USD to buy non-Russian energy, overpriced in USD. The long-term goal of the USA is to dismember the EU in order to destroy the Euro currency, thereby preserving the USD as the world’s dominant reserve currency.

    Your reference to the IMF reserve loops below won’t work even if the IMF uses its SDR currency:

    USA –> Canada –> EU –> Latin America –> USA

    Or

    EU –> Canada –> USA –> Latin America –> EU

    Precisely because the EU has its own Euro currency which would have displaced the USD as the world’s dominant reserve currency had the Russian-German NS2 pipeline gone into operation and the EU-China investment treaty gone into effect. With both the 2014 Sino-Russian Power of Siberia and the 2022 Sino-Russian Power of Siberia 2 gas deals priced in Euros as well as INSTEX allowing the EU to bypass US sanctions against Iran, the Euro reserve loops would have looked like something below:

    Russia —> EU —> Iran —> China —> Russia

    Or

    China —> EU —> Iran —> Russia —> China

    If Russia, China and Iran are not enough, then add India, Brazil and South Africa to get BRIICS. Throw in the rest of Asia, Africa and Latin America, then you get the Global South using the Euro. Remember that the only reason why the USD remained the world’s dominant reserve currency after Nixon abandoned the Gold Standard was the Kissinger-brokered deal with the Saudis known as the Petrodollar System. Both Russian and Iranian oil & gas getting traded in Euros effectively kills the Petrodollar System which is enforced by US military power in the Middle East.

The allegedly ‘social democratic’ ALP only put band-aids over these mortal wounds, because years of hate propaganda by the Right, led by the Murdoch cancer, has demonised these victims so viciously that easing their suffering is considered ‘electorally’ inadvisable. Other sadisms were inflicted for years on children in ‘State care’, old people in ‘nursing homes’, foreigners in our role in US-led colonial wars etc. The rabble ape their betters through bullying, which is absolutely rife and getting worse, year by year.
    In fact the Western worldview, of ‘dominion’ over Life on Earth, granted by that hideous ego-projection, the Judaic patriarchal God, has led to abominable damage inflicted on living systems, non-Western peoples and even the fabric of the planet, in the search for money, the concrete sign of ‘God’s blessing.

    Yeah they claim to be “Christian” nations and yet they don’t understand the biblical principle “you reap what you sow”. They sowed destabilization and destroyed all those countries – so now they are reaping the refugee crisis in return.

    Here is something that might shock you. Most of the EU along with South Korea is more reliant on foreign trade than China is!!! Only the US and Japan is less reliant. Facts are important things.

    As to Russian hydrocarbons… Haven’t you heard how much has now shifted to Asia???? Asia has a larger energy demand than the EU and US.

    Yup… And a lot of the characters he noted he patterned after people he met while living in Jamaica… Lots of British intelligence spent time in Jamaica since it was a colony… People even forget that Nazi prisoners were kept there during WW2. Lots of secrets there in the tropics.

    I agree.

    Thanks.

    Both Russian and Iranian oil & gas getting traded in Euros effectively kills the Petrodollar System

    There’s a (the usual) problem for Iran:

    Nuclear chief: IAEA is referencing Israel
    https://www.tehrantimes.com/news/476900/Nuclear-chief-IAEA-is-referencing-Israel
    (excerpt, emphasis added)

    TEHRAN— In a live interview with national TV late Sunday, Head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) said that Israel has turned into a reference for the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

    The AEOI chief noted, “The narrative that Zionists and Westerners make about Iran’s nuclear program and the accusations they have against our nuclear industry predates to 20 years ago.”

    “The Agency said that we are closing the case of two of the alleged places and you should clarify more about the next two sites, Eslami said, adding, “Later, they closed the case of one of those two sites and later, they reopened the case of the same site.”

    Eslami exemplified, “One of these places is an abandoned mine that has been unused for more than 30 years.”

    There is no nuclear activity in the Islamic Republic of Iran that has not been reported to the Agency or that the Agency is unaware of, he reiterated, adding that all of Iran’s activities are under the Agency’s supervision.

    About 2% of the world’s nuclear capacity is related to Iran, but about 25% of the inspections are done from Iran, the AEOI chief lamented.

    Eslami then noted, “The messages we hear from the Agency show that they intend to close this (Safeguards) case. We hope they are honest and don’t waste more time and don’t assume that they can apply maximum pressure with this leverage.”

    Same sadists in Ukraine: That’s the kind of democracy the US, UK, and Canada’s-WEF’s protégée Christia Chomiak Freeland want to export in Ukraine (she said NATO is there to protect Ukraine’s civilians against Russia) – Bravo Canada!:
