Michael Hudson: Keynote speech at the David Graeber anthropology conference in France

The Saker

12th July, 2022

“It may seem strange to invite an economist to give a keynote speech to a conference of the social sciences. Economists have been characterized as autistic and anti-social in the popular press for good reason.   They are trained to think abstractly and use a priori deduction – based on how they think societies should develop. Today’s mainstream economists look at neoliberal privatization and free-market ideals as leading society’s income and wealth to settle at an optimum equilibrium without any need for government regulation – especially not of credit and debt.”

14th September, 2022

As boosters that have not been tested on humans are being rolled out across the country, a new study indicates that the jab is far more dangerous than COVID-19 itself. And the CDC has provided false information regarding their tracking of adverse events linked to the vaccines.

Soros’ dream: To turn China into a neoliberal grabitization opportunity

2nd September, 2021

Soros gives his game away by stating that “Xi does not understand how markets operate.” What he means is that President Xi rejects rapacious rent-seeking, exploitative free-for-all, and shapes markets to serve overall prosperity for China’s 99 Percent. “As a consequence, the sell-off was allowed to go too far,” Soros continues. What he means is, too far to maintain the dominance of the One Percent. China is seeking to reverse economic polarization, not intensify it.

Significantly, Kerry also held talks with Politburo member Yang Jiechi, China’s most senior diplomat. It does look already that a confrontational approach toward China may have become highly improbable during the Biden presidency. The geopolitics of the Indo-Pacific region is on the cusp of change.

So we have the CIA Director William Burns deploying in haste to Kabul to solicit an audience with Taliban leader Abdul Ghani Baradar, the new potential ruler of a former satrapy. And he literally begs him to extend a deadline on the evacuation of US assets.

Why the loss of Afghanistan ultimately ends the Empire

29th August, 2021

This episode and its implications will not be lost on other servants of the Empire. Will the its corrupt puppets in the Middle East, Africa, South America and elsewhere be comfortable following the Empire’s dictates? Will they obediently “build back better,” ploughing over their economies and social fabric, destroying their people’s lives? After Afghanistan they will have to think about making nice with their own people and seek cooperation with other global powers, primarily China and Russia. The Empire has already been check-mated in Ukraine; it lost Syria and their hold on Iraq has all but slipped away. Afghanistan may well prove to be its mortal wound.

Reflections on Events in Afghanistan-9

Indian Punchline

27th August, 2021

The horrific terrorist strikes in Kabul on Thursday which killed at least 12 US servicemen and dozens of civilians will lead to a higher level of cooperation between the US and the Taliban. 

The commander of CENTCOM Gen. Kenneth McKenzie disclosed to journalists on Thursday that  the US was already sharing information on terror threats in Afghanistan with Taliban. As he put it, “We share versions of this information with the Taliban so that they actually make searches… We think they’ve thwarted some.”

The US is finally coming round to the Russian view that the real terrorist threat in Afghanistan stems from the Islamic State and not the Taliban — and, more importantly, Taliban can be a useful partner in the fight against the ISIS.

To this day, many people are still unclear as to the nefarious role that Hungarian mega speculator-turned philanthropist-turned color revolutionary George Soros has played in international affairs over the past 40 years. Sadly, many of those who have woken to the systematic carnage created by the elderly sociopath tend to make the mistake of either 1) assuming that the man has run an international conspiracy to rid the world of nation states all by himself or 2) believe him to be a stooge for the “evil Chinese Communist Party” which seeks to overthrow the western Christian-based order.

New Cold War: Some Western pundits want to break up Russia & China

Posted by seumasach on August 5, 2021

In fact, the destruction of Russia and China is the goal along with the destruction of their own countries. At the heart of Western policy is a shocking nihilism and the vain hope of a New World Order built of the rubble of national sovereignty.

US Doubts Returning to Iran Nuclear Deal Is Possible

Posted by seumasach on August 2, 2021

It can hardly then be a coincidence that the UK and Israel are unilaterally declaring Iran responsible for the recent drone attack on an Israeli-owned ship. Both have an interest in drawing the USA back under their influence after the setback of US-Russian detente

It wasn’t so long ago that the US was reportedly close to rejoining the Iran nuclear deal, and diplomats were saying many of the terms had been worked out. Now, the US is growing pessimistic, suggesting that the return may be politically impossible.
