  1. https://www.reuters.com/world/china/china-evergrande-files-protection-us-court-part-32-bln-debt-overhaul-2023-08-18/

    HONG KONG/NEW YORK, Aug 18 (Reuters) - Embattled developer China Evergrande Group (3333.HK) has filed for U.S. bankruptcy protection as part of one of the world's biggest debt restructurings, as anxiety grows over China's worsening property crisis and its impact on the weakening economy.

    China unexpectedly lowered several key interest rates earlier this week in a bid to shore up struggling activity and is expected to cut prime loan rates on Monday, but analysts say moves so far have been too little, too late, with much more forceful measures needed to stem the economy's downward spiral.

    This has been a long time coming for Evergrande, and it is a sign of worsening conditions in China.  

    It’s a very provocative development when you consider that the BRICS nations are meeting tomorrow and rumour has it they may be admitting more countries such as Saudi Arabia.  They also are looking at issuing a new gold backed currency.  

    And what might that do to the US dollar?

    I know very well she was talking about being her own person, a brilliant political tactic, yet, they stayed together for the optics to be a political powercouple moving forward, that was my point. 

    You think HIlary was standing by her man when she said, she wasn't standing by her man like Tammy Wynette.   That's all I'm saying.  You are misunderstanding what Hilary meant back in the 90's.

    She is definitely not Hillary Clinton to stand by her man but let's face it he is not a man of Bill Clinton's value and talents either, just being realistic, no offense to Trudeau if he reads this in the future. 

    Personally, I would even ask Mr. Trudeau to consider an exercise and ask himself, where would he be without his father's name today? 

    Uh, Hilary said that she wouldn't stand by her man like Tammy Wynette.  So your statement makes no sense. I think you completely misremember what was meant by Mrs. Clinton, or perhaps you never knew. If you get a chance, read up on that now, and the retort by Tammy W.

    Sir, is well known the Ukrainian military has issues following what they were taught as this classified leaked document from the German army suggests:


    However, you are not here to critique for the good of the West, you are here to critique for Putin, because the social changes scare you, so instead of doing the work here you run to the enemy, Putin for comfort towards your sexual confusing "feelings".

    No, the UFOs scare me.  You, on the other hand, make me laugh.  Keep up the good work on your battle with the bottle komrad, posting here 100’s of times per week is probably good therapy for you.

  5. I laughed at the title of this thread several months ago, saying it was the longest collapse of a major power’ army in history.

    Apparently some are still under the delusion that the Russian army is collapsing(yeah, that’s why the US sent over cluster bombs).

    I give you Newsweek, and an article that says out loud that the Ukraine offensive went nowhere.  And it’s NATO’s fault.


    “Ukraine's previous offensives were successful last year when faced with Russian forces who were thinly spread out and struggling with logistical and command difficulties. Now Ukraine is advancing against well-prepared Russian defenses.

    Kyiv's new Western-supplied weaponry has been met by valleys of trenches dug by Russians along the 600-mile front line. These include minefields, anti-tank ditches and "dragon's teeth"—square-pyramidal shaped pieces of concrete used to stop military vehicles.”

    Now, moonboy’s opinions aside, does that sound like a collapsing Russian army?

  6. The deliberate moves toward a digital currency have been occurring for about a decade.  Probably many moves and preparations done before then too. 

    CBDC's will be introduced using the carrot and stick approach. An economic crisis will come, and the governments will say, "We want to get the money in your hands(the public) but its going to take too long.  Here's a new way we can get it to you.  Simply sign up on this Gov website, agree to all of the stipulations(there will be many pages that no one will read), and we can get you this money TODAY and you can spend it out of your account TODAY!"

    The stick part will be that the money has to be spent within a certain time or it will disappear.  Plus it can't be spent on certain things.  Very few people will realize that the ability to see what you are spending this money on, or not spending it at all, is something that the government has never been able to do before(except for cash, of course).  The dark side of CBDC.  A few people will probably get their accounts frozen, but they will be painted as extremist conspiracy theorists by the media.  

    Cash will remain, but more and more stories in the news will appear on how antiquated cash money is, how it's  causing so many problems.  The young already are programmed to not use cash, its just the old that have to be programmed on the dangers of the germs that cash carries, etc, to be willing to give it up.

    And other "news" stories exposing "extremists" that are hoarding cash, etc.  People are so easy to program now that everyone has a smart phone to do the work.  Will this work, this transfer of our economic rights over to the government?

    That depends on us.

    "His bidding" was US POLICY as determined by the POTUS. Was he lying? OR YOU?

    Was Biden going rogue? I HIGHLY doubt it. Unlike Trump, he's not stupid enough to go rogue on tape. 

    Except you right wingers CONTINUALLY try to smear Joe with things done by Hunter, so you're going to have to live with the double standard YOU GUYS invented. LMAO

    US policy was not to interfere in an investigation into Hunter Biden.  That was Joe’s policy.

    Except YOU'RE LYING, as USUAL. Biden coerced Ukraine to conform to US PUBLIC POLICY as decided by the POTUS.

    AND the European Union. Making US AID conditional is NOT EXTORTION, it IS SOP.

    Except when the "condition" is AID BY SMEAR for a PRIVATE POLITICAL CAMPAIGN PURPOSE. AKA, what Trump did.

    When Biden said in the video that he would withold funds unless Ukraine would do his bidding, was he lying?

    Here's video of 3 separate instances where Joe Biden directly and emphatically denied any knowledge of Hunter's overseas business dealings. I know of at least one other one, when he was very rude with a female ABC reporter, but it's not in this clip:

    These are Joe Biden's own words, not mine. 

    For whatever reason, Joe pretended to be completely unaware of Hunter's $30K/mo job at Burisma and of the tens of millions that he made with the communist banks in China. 

    And notice that when the left doesn’t have the facts or truth on their side, they go into argue mode and fill up the thread with bickering nonsense.

  10. Ah yes, the non specific response.  I made several points so I have no idea which point or points you are referring to.  Which is what's needed to properly respond to you.  I'm going to go ahead and recommend that you keep on living in fear until you get over yourself, which most likely will never happen until you are pushing up daisies.

  11. Interesting responses.  There seems to be a  consensus that things will be worse in the next 5 years.  I have a friend who surfs the dark web, as he calls it, and from what he tells me I suspect there is a lot of fearmongering going on there, and a lot of propaganda.  And whatever your perspective, I think we can agree that our media sources are also rife with fear and propaganda.

    Fear of climate.  Fear of people.  Fear of the future.  I would submit that fear has always been pushed on the public, and used to get specific results.  That makes such fear a form of propaganda.  Think about that.

  12. Wow, there’s a lot of drama in this thread, although I have to award bonus points for the  BAT GUANO reference.  

    If the left would just calm down, and refrain from being common, I’m sure the right would do likewise.

    I pick on the left since your side tends to think of themselves as having more intelligence than the ‘Fox watching’ right.  If you’re smarter, then let’s see some of this higher intellect in action.

  13. https://www.azmirror.com/2023/05/15/kari-lake-granted-new-trial-must-prove-maricopa-county-ignored-signature-verification-rules/

    And the judge in the case, who ruled late Monday that Lake can take her sole remaining claim to trial on Wednesday, made clear that the former GOP gubernatorial nominee has her work cut out for her: She must prove her allegations by “clear and convincing evidence,” something he noted she hasn’t yet done in her monthslong litigation trying to toss out the November election.

    Noting that Lake’s allegation of election fraud “leaps over a substantial gap in the evidence presented,” Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson wrote in a ruling Monday ordering the new trial that the evidence she has presented “falls far below what is needed to establish a basis for fraud.”

    Funny how the judge is pre-judging the case.  Also funny, he gives her a trial which means there appears to be a possible case of election fraud.  But then he comments on how weak her case is.  Then why give her a court date to present her case?

    It won’t matter on appeal anyway.  As soon as some uncompromised judges deliberate over the evidence, things will start to happen.


  14. Things are ramping up.  Yesterday Durham released a jaw dropping report on his investigations into the 2016 election and the many domestic attempts to interfere with Trump’s campaign by the CIA, FBI, Obama and Hilary campaign.  It’s jaw dropping.  One other thing happened yesterday.  The IRS shut down its investigation of Hunter Biden.

    Next week Durham has agreed to testify.  Expect a major fake news story or false flag event to compete for attention.  I checked, no Chinese balloons are available, they are going to have to come up with something else.

    Is there a leftist anywhere that can own up to anything? 

    Not one of these losers will show the least bit of concern about the fact that the Bidens basically got millions of dollars for nothing from the Chinese gov't, and Joe pretended not to know anything about any of it.

    They don't even care about crimes by the FBI. "Their heart was in the right place." They're more worried about guys who accepted police officers' invitations to wander around in the capitol. 

    Here’s some good news for you.  Although the Biden crime family has been threatening and silencing witnesses behind the scenes, at least 5 whistleblowers are cued up and ready to sing.


    The whistleblowers include and IRS agent, and an Obama era stenographer.  I imagine that the Biden’s are freaking out behind closed doors. 

    Someone should put a tail on Hunter.  His drug intake will be spiking and so will the chances that he’ll do something actionable.

    I realize this is difficult for government sluts to understand, but I will always question the debt. 

    Today's leaders are complete scumbags compared to previous leaders and it gets worse with each passing year.

    It's time to start questioning. 

    True, but then again it could be argued that it’s already way too late.  The US is headed for insolvency due to the end of the petro dollar.  As soon as the US buck starts dropping in earnest(in contrast to the last 6 months) the world community will dump their US bucks.  This surplus of US cash will crash the dollar. 

    Then it won’t really matter who spent what.
