The US alliance in Europe and Asia are both under tremendous stress and some are beginning to collapse entirely. This all made rather brief news this last two days: Philippines leader Rodrigo Duterte says it’s time to say goodbye to the US | Daily Mail Online
Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte announced his ‘separation’ from the United States on Thursday saying it was time to say ‘goodbye’.
‘America has lost now,’ Duterte said in China’s Great Hall of the People.
‘Your stay in my country was for your own benefit. So time to say goodbye, my friend,’ he said Wednesday of the US.
‘No more American interference. No more American exercises. What for?’
Duterte also declared that he had realigned with China as the two agreed to resolve their South China Sea dispute through talks.
This is a most stunning reversal and the US was depending on using the Philippine base for actions against China. I figured this would happen and it will happen more and more as time goes by since the US is deep in the red and China is now an industrial and world trade giant.
This situation illustrates what destroyed the British empire. Bleeding badly from WWI, but no rivals for colonies to exploit, the empire grew after WWI despite everything. Even as things got worse and worse for the home population, the colonies were still major sources of income. Then WWII came along and all that came crashing down.
Attaching itself to the US empire, it rolled onwards but is in trouble now, the turn to Europe has now officially failed due to a home revolt of voters with the Brexit business. I just found this story, talking about London bankers here and how our ‘rulers’ are owned by them…ahem…Hillary Clinton Begs Forgiveness From Rothschilds in Leaked Email:
In emails from her private server made available to the public by WikiLeaks, Clinton’s close relationship to Lady de Rothschild is evident due to their warm exchanges which include phrases such as “You are the best […] Sweet dreams,” “I remain your loyal adoring pal,” and “Much love.” This is significant as, judging by Clinton’s other emails, her communication style is almost always curt and concise, never approaching the outright declarations of affection found only in her exchanges with Lady de Rothschild. Lady de Rothschild, married into the Rothschild family in 2000 after being introduced to Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, who alone is worth $20 billion, at the 1998 Bilderberg Conference. War criminal Henry Kissinger served as the couple’s “match-maker.”
Yet, the most bizarre interaction between Clinton and Lady de Rothschild took place in an email titled “Info for you” (ID#1606), which was sent while Clinton was serving as US Secretary of State. In the email, Clinton tells Lady de Rothschild that she had to ask Tony Blair (then-Prime Minister of England) to accompany her to Israel due to the Middle East peace negotiations taking place at the time. Blair had previously planned to spend the weekend in Aspen, Colorado with the Rothschilds at an unspecified conference, but accepted Clinton’s invitation. Clinton then says “I hope you all understand. […] Let me know what penance I owe you.” For those who are not familiar with the word, penance is defined as follows: “An act of self-mortification or devotion performed voluntarily to show sorrow for a sin or other wrongdoing.” Does this sound like something Hillary Clinton would normally say?
Hillary became rich hobnobbing with rich nobs. Trump got rich entertaining people and luring them into doing rather naughty things that I never do because it is stupid but people love gambling and TV so there it is: we are between a rock and a hard place.
The GOP leaders won’t mention a thing about any of these Wikileak revelations because they are all part of the same multi-headed beast. Talking about beasts, here is some amusing news about how governments can collapse due to sheer stupidity: ‘Saudi civil servants work 1 hour a day, we’re headed for bankruptcy in 3-4 years’ – ministers — RT News reports, again, Russian news which I love so much.
Top Saudi officials have hit out at shockingly low productivity in the country’s bloated public sector, as the kingdom – reeling from low oil prices – tries to cut a budget deficit that ran to nearly $100 billion last year.
“The amount worked [among state employees] doesn’t even exceed an hour – and that’s based on studies,” civil service minister Khaled Alaraj said during an official discussion of Saudi Arabia’s economy broadcast at prime time on Wednesday night.
More than two-thirds of all Saudis in employment work for the government – compared to fewer than 20 percent for the US – and last year the kingdom spent about 45 percent of its budget, or $128 billion, to pay their wages.
And they import foreign labor due to being too lazy to work. That country is going to be a primary example in the future of sudden rise in wealth and total collapse back into living in tents again and riding camels. Only they have lost the life skills for even simple tasks.
This cannot be fixed. It is set in cement just like we have, for the last four generations now, set black inner city youths on this path they also cannot escape, broken families, unable to learn anything or control emotions or be productive except when committing crimes, reaching the point of no return. How on earth can anyone change this, too?
This is the danger of falling into social/civil traps that teach families destructive habits. This is why empires collapse. Rome collapsed due to reliance on slavery for labor coupled with welfare systems for ‘citizens’ and this cause internal rot and when barbarians came in, they nearly wiped out everyone else and replaced them with more dynamic people.
