As expected, only libertarians and far left liberals in Congress voted against the latest stupid trade treaties that the Bilderberg absolutely adore and push so hard to impose on everyone. Fascists in places like Japan loves these deals because they don’t protect US jobs and allow them, even first world economic powers, to continue exporting hugely to the US while restricting imports. Here is the latest from Japan: Japan braces for another butter shortage! Yes, butter has been for generations, restricted in Japan and you are not allowed to buy more than a tiny amount at a time and this disappears regularly. A top economic nation cannot have enough butter…or toilet paper…or any common thing the rest of us take for granted. All in the name of preventing even the most normal imports.
“The government plans to have butter imports on a scale sufficient for stable supply,” said Agriculture Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi on Tuesday, adding details of the emergency measure will be announced this week…Last year’s butter imports—7,000 tons in May and a further 3,000 tons in September—were the first time in years that Tokyo had raided foreign dairy markets.
As always, the comments to this article are revealing:

“The government plans to have butter imports on a scale sufficient for stable supply,” said Agriculture Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi on Tuesday
I am getting very tired of supermarkets here regularly running out of butter for days on end, and having to hoard it since much of my cooking relies on the ingredient.
I really do wish Japan’s ministry of agriculture would simply get out of the business of deciding how much butter Japan will import. Let the free market decide! The agriculture bureaucrats are doing a horrible job of ensuring “stable supply” — an advanced economy like Japan should not continually face chronic butter shortages as it now does.
The government of Japan actively prevents any farm products from entering Fortress Japan. One would imagine all the trade partners flooded with Japanese goods would protest. But no, our government, the government of Australia or the European Union lets this ride and makes protection deals with Japan whereby we take 90% of the cost and the potential pain on behalf of Japan’s very active territorial demands and push for war with China and Russia. The US has zero reasons for war with China and Russia. Our military rule of the planet when both countries were much weaker has been a total disaster.
Trillions wasted on wars with a billion Muslims. Trillions wasted on protecting trade rivals who ravage our nation causing us to run up a massive, historic trade deficit paid for with fake money called ‘dollars’. The dollar is strong right now because our allies who are our trade rivals, are desperate to export to our country to balance their budgets and Japan is running trade deficits now, regularly, ever since Fukushima.
Japan to join US-Aussie military drills in July as Japan knows that via the Bilderberg gang rule and corruption of Congress, they can control our government along with all the other foreign powers like the Saudi royals, and by pretending to be part of our military machine, infiltrate the diplomatic and military ranks and thus, use our mighty power for themselves. They know the American public will be dragooned into war very easily by media propaganda.
US-China war ‘inevitable’ unless Washington drops demands over South China Sea says China. This is news in Europe but not the US, of course. We cannot go to war with most Muslims and then add a billion Chinese and go to war with them, too. The US won WWI and WWII only by coming in VERY LATE. We didn’t take the brunt of the worst fighting. The Chinese and Russians did that.
China raps Japan after Abe’s wife visits Yasukuni shrine as Abe plays the Banzai! game. Yes, this is very clever and insanely stupid. He is deliberately insulting all of his neighbors due to US support for Japanese imperial pretensions. The US thinks that WWIII will be like WWI and WWII with the US untouched by war for 80% of the fighting and then jumping in at the middle or the end to sweep all before it due to not being touched by war hardly at all. We didn’t have to import food, fuel or manufactured goods until after the Vietnam War, we had zero trade deficits until the middle of the Vietnam war! Today, we are extremely vulnerable to having food, fuel and manufactured goods disappear if war happens.
Worse, WWIII will BEGIN with the US being decimated violently via nuclear bombs raining down mainly on our nuclear power plants. Think the people opposing US imperial power in Asia and Eurasia don’t understand or know the import of what happened to Fukushima and Chernobyl? Of course, they understand perfectly well just as I understand. Way back in the Cold War, our major cities were slated for bombing. No longer!
Our elites bombed most of our cities and support the burning of what remains of our cities and tells the mostly on welfare residents they have good reason to loot and burn what remains of what used to be our major industrial cities because our rulers have zero use for the cities and hope the poor there kill each other off even faster which is why they now support withdrawal of police from the inner cities like Baltimore, Detroit, Cleveland, etc.
The Russians and Chinese know this which is why they will not bomb any of these cities, figuring that protecting the populations there, when the suburban areas, destroyed by nuclear power plants blowing up and polluting everything, will then be systematically murdered and looted by raving gangs from the cities because the welfare money keeping them all happy and fed will collapse.
This Mad Max future is obvious to me. Look at Ukraine: No Bottom in Sight as Ukraine’s Economy Continues Free Fall. Inflation is raging, the US wants to park nuclear missiles there aimed at Russia, the oligarchs are attacking the eastern half of their own country again, bombing civilians. This will end badly for Europe for it repeats the typical mistakes made every 50 years in Europe, thinking ‘Russia is weak, let’s go to war with them!’ Stupid, stupid, stupid.
Ditto with China: Japan is not strong. It is very weak. The people there have entirely given up. They can’t even reproduce anymore. The younger generation is not having children because working conditions are punishingly stupid keeping males at work for ungodly hours and the women don’t like the men at all and are rejecting them and living with mom (NOT DAD) which is very much like the US inner cities, by the way. The collapse of the family in Japan is most profound and deep and getting worse by the day and the only way a country can go to war easily is with a disposable male population which China has in spades as do Muslim nations.
Our foreign rulers have infiltrated our political system: Hillary Clinton’s financial disclosure omitted ‘pass-through’ company used by Bill | Daily Mail Online
Hillary Clinton’s financial disclosure omitted ‘pass-through’ company used by Bill Clinton to collect consulting fees – and nobody knows how much
Former president uses a shell company called WJC, LLC to move money from his clients to his own pocket
Since the company’s accoutns are typically empty after each transfer, Hillary didn’t have to disclose its existence
Candidates must declare family assets worth $1,000 or more
US government has green-lighted Bill Clinton’s consulting relationships with his former counselor Doug Band, entertainment investor Casey Wasserman and film investor Steve Bing
Band’s company Teneo Holdings gave Hillary aide Huma Abedin a second income after her husband, former Rep. Anthony Weiner, resigned in disgrace following a sexting scandal
The Democrats and Republicans all consume this swill. Both parties do this with gusto. They pretend to be outraged by this when out of power but then happily eat away when in power. Our media owners don’t want reforms because many of them are also bribing someone. So we get very little outrage except when the party supported by a media giant is out of power then they blast away, when in power, they shut up.
This is also how the antiwar people operate: if someone they support is in power, war is great and fun and good. When out of power, they are evil, and war is terrible. I am furious with the collapse of the antiwar movement today. Utterly deranged with students more interested in fighting balmy weather rather than stopping WWIII.
