The Entire World Is Responding to the New Reality Created by the Trump-Kim Summit

The Entire World Is Responding to the New Reality Created by the Trump-Kim Summit

Tuesday's summit in Singapore demonstrated that there is a sea-change underway in global politics, a sea-change that is sweeping away the old, decadent structures of geopolitics, and ushering in a New Paradigm which is taking root, first in Asia, around the Spirit of the New Silk Road. The world is divided, Helga Zepp-LaRouche commented today, between those, on the one hand, who understand that the Trump-Kim summit is the beginning of a new sort of process of peace through development; and those, on the other, whose hysterical reaction against the summit belies the fact that they would prefer even nuclear war to seeing the rules of their game change. The latter group includes the British Empire, their neo-con and neo-liberal allies in the U.S., and the apoplectic western media, who are lying wildly about what happened in Singapore.

While the clowns come together in Quebec for the G-7 this weekend, real things are getting accomplished in Asia at the SCO Summit

While the clowns come together in Quebec for the G-7 this weekend, real things are getting accomplished in Asia at the SCO Summit

Nothing spells out chaos and turmoil better than the expectations this weekend for Western leaders at the G-7 conference in Quebec, Canada.

Even before arriving for the summit, European leaders have gone as far as to try to isolate the U.S. by calling the group the G-6 +1, with some like Emmanuel Macron threatening to stand toe to toe with President Trump over trade and tariffs.

However while it appears that the West has diminished to nothing more than a three ring circus, over in Asia real work is getting accomplished at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit which is scheduled to also meet this weekend.

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

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.

'Deals' Or Wars? — Trump Joining Economics With Xi, Meeting Putin, Will Decide

'Deals' Or Wars? — Trump Joining Economics With Xi, Meeting Putin, Will Decide

A Japanese newspaper has raised the prospect that President Donald Trump's crucial June 12 summit with D.P.R.K. leader Kim Jong-un may be joined by China's President Xi Jinping. This report, sourced to an unnamed American official, is not at all confirmed. But the potential of the leaders of the three Armistice countries of the Korean War meeting, with the included goal of ending it with a treaty, is a very significant one for that summit furthering peace and economic progress in the world.

More important, however, is that President Trump decide between his own campaigning for Alexander Hamilton's "American System" to "make America great again," and the British system of high profits from trade and cheap labor, which his party and advisors push on him.

Why? Because the decision for the American System means joining in cooperation with China's extraordinary Belt and Road Initiative of great infrastructure projects, which itself culminated decades and decades of China's learning and adopting Hamilton's economics with Chinese characteristics. And that will make President Trump's Korea "deal" succeed.

China To Establish World-Class Universities For Innovation Revolution

China To Establish World-Class Universities For Innovation Revolution

In yet further evidence that China is leaving no stone unturned as they seek to make giant strides forward in reforms, the Chinese President Xi Jinping is seeking to turn the nation’s universities into world-class institutions.

Xi stated that the precondition of making a university great is to make a nation great. He also suggested that China is continuing to make internal reforms towards a modernised socialist country, urging the younger generations to provide the momentum to ensure these goals are achieved and become the latest significant force in rejuvenating China.

Shanghai Oil Quotes Now Rolling

Shanghai Oil Quotes Now Rolling

The photo of Putin celebrating never gets old. The other players raising a glass of champagne that you can't see in the picture are President Xi as well as the ghosts of Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi, Hugo Chavez, and anybody else who once dreamed of accomplishing what Russia and China have now done: selling oil contracts at an international market in a currency other than the #PetroDollar.
