The Chinese Dream (Китайская Мечта): What Moscow is Learning from Beijing's Success

When it comes to the Russia-China alliance, many Westerners tend to view it simplistically, basically as China buying oil and gas plus acquiring military technology from the Russians. The notion that the One Belt One Road (OBOR) goes both ways, and Moscow also has much to learn from Beijing’s tremendous success in lifting hundreds of millions out of poverty in less than two generations, is seldom acknowledged in Brussels, London or Washington. Yet as RogueMoney contributor London Paul of the Sirius Report likes to say, “Watch China and Russia” — because these two giants are the economic and security spearheads respectively to a post-dollar dominated, indeed a post-Western led world.

As the Russian Analyst noted in a previous post about the Valdai discussion group meetings in Shanghai of April 2018, several Chinese experts points of emphasis was greater cooperation between Russia and China in the media space. We see examples of this in RT launching a Chinese language channel in 2017 and more recently, in CGTN’s coverage of the 2018 St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF). But these programs have mostly targeted international rather than domestic Russian audiences, even as polling data shows Russians rank China as their country’s greatest friend on the world stage, alongside former Soviet republics Belarus and Kazakhstan, and well ahead of European trading partners Germany and France. China requites this ‘love’, to the extent that the historically inward looking and vast Middle Kingdom can, with polling data showing Putin is the most admired world leader among 1.4 billion Chinese.

Late in May Russian TV extensively promoted a new documentary film titled “The Chinese Dream: Path to Revival” by Alexei Denisov. The title is suggestive, not only of China’s revival, but that of Russia as well.

Will Americans Allow a "Cultural Revolution" To Destroy the Nation?

Will Americans Allow a "Cultural Revolution" To Destroy the Nation?

The following article by LaRouchePAC comes courtesy of our Berlin-based friend and frequent RogueMoney guest, Harley Schlanger. Though it remains to be seen if President Trump's announced 'strategy' in Afghanistan will prove to be better than his predecessors', there can be no doubt that racial and cultural identity questions are being deliberately exacerbated to create chaos across the country -- and thereby claim that the country has grown ungovernable on Donald Trump's watch and the only 'solution' is removing him from the White House.

Furthermore, it is highly disturbing when foreign observers immediately notice frightening similarities between the radicalism the globalists are unleashing on the streets of America and the playbook of recent 'color revolutions' in the former Soviet Union. The Bolshevik or Maoist-like zeal to purge anything about America's past not viewed as politically correct, results in both unintentional comedy (taking an Asian American sportscaster of an ESPN broadcast of a University of Virginia game because his name is Robert Lee) and outrageous calls for cultural destruction (Vice News oops we only meant it in an ironic hipster way calling for Mt. Rushmore to be 'blown up' due to having 'racist' presidents carved into its face). -- JWS
