I recently watched your interview with Stephen Arnold on China. I have some comments.
1) Deng Xiaoping was an important leader of China for a number of reasons, but the increasing role of people with an engineering background in upper leadership started with him. Xi Jinping has an engineering background:
Big Picture. Democrats in disarray. Brokered convention seems likely. Impeachment will be a hoot. Virginia is being stage-managed on both sides, it should ultimately lead to the end of Democratic governors and Democratically-controlled state legislatures. The over-reach of the Virginia Governor on confiscating weapons in violation of the 2nd Amendment is a gift to the Trump revolution.
As we speak, the State of Virginia is attempting to pass laws that would forcefully confiscate the arms of the people of that sovereign State: specifically, semi-automatic rifles AND pistols.
Speaking of Donald Trump, has anyone noticed that this president who keeps telling us how much he supports the Second Amendment has thus far said absolutely NOTHING in defense of the brave men and women of Virginia who are RIGHT NOW fighting for the right of every American to keep and bear arms? Not a peep! Not a tweet!
I want to share with you Rosa Zubizarreta’s remarkable insights into how a very powerful process work its magic. That process is Dynamic Facilitation and Rosa reveals its elegant recipe for transforming intense group conflict into creative group breakthroughs. If a fire-eater ate fire and then pull flowers and doves out of his mouth, we’d call it magic. DF often looks like that. So what’s the secret?
Despite historically important achievements economic growth, job creation, reduced unemployment, prison reform, reduced illegal immigration and notable return to policies of nationalism rather than globalism, President Donald Trump has spent much of his first three years in office defending himself against astonishingly unsupported investigations and an attempted impeachment without an identifiable crime. By contrast, 2020 is more likely to become a year during which Trump’s detractors will play defense in attempts to avoid punishment for real crimes committed both currently and during previous administrations.
Big Picture. Nothing done on this all week in part because the assassination dominated everything. Consider the possibility that the assassination was faked by agreement to achieve mutual strategic objectives.
The alliance between Israel and the neoconservatives is causing a war. The solution is a countervailing alliance that brings the warmongers to their senses.
Trump, Pompeo, political generals, rapture evangelism, and presstitutes are simultaneously discrediting the US government, the US military, Christianity, and giving Israel the power to take the United States to war, a power that it will be difficult for Israel not to use.
Another good interview as you are moving in the right direction! However, both you and Gordon admit that “everything we’ve been told is a lie” but you continue with ideas that do not acknowledge this reality.
I’ve spent more than 30 years in IT, starting in banking and moving to the military as a contractor.
Let’s use some simple IF-THEN programming logic.
If you consider that everything we’ve been told and taught is a lie, then:
