COMMENT: Hello Marty !!
It looks like the ” China as a parking lot for cash has already begun. FXI going to the moon of late in spite of Xi & Co. cutting off their own economic foot to hide behind their troubles and blame it on the darn protestors to the folly, by golly. One thing I’ve learned over the years from you is that when one (You) declares things are gonna get nuts (from a guy who has seen way more then his share), don’t blink when human events exceed the retardation level of insanity (NOW!)
Thank You for your take on reality and truth, it is setting many free, and these are those who will pick up the pieces once the warring factions beat each other silly and dead.
Very Best Martin, much respect!
REPLY: I know a lot of people do not like our forecast that post-2032 China will emerge as the Financial Capitol of the World replacing the United States. Some argue against me citing the protests and the form of government. Let me state as clearly as I possibly can. DO NOT assume that the current government in China will survive any more than the United States or Europe.
The last major political collapse was the birth of the United States, the French Revolution, and the surrender of the supreme power of the monarch in Britain and elsewhere. It was the fall of the monarchy and the world turned to a Republic.
I would like to see the world turn to reach democracy where We the People actually decide to go to war rather than these corrupt politicians who take bribes.
The fall of the United States is underway. The nation has become polarized and next will come separatist movements just as in the American Civil War which took place 86 years into the cycle (10 * 8.6) from 1775/6.
All of this talk of a One World Government will end war is absurd. The former President of France stood before the EU Parliament and stated that was the same idea that led to the creation of the EU. One European government would prevent European war. Now they are trying to accomplish this using the United Nations.
Obviously, these people lack any understanding of history. Yes, Rome was one government and it lasted overall for 1,000 years. However, it had many civil wars and it even split into three empires during the 3rd Century.
Perhaps you will recall after the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44BC, Mark Antony and Octavian (Augustus) were together and waged civil war against Brutus and others. Then they too split and waged yet another civil war with Mark Antony and Cleopatra v Octavian and his general Agrippa.
Augustus became the first emperor in 27BC and then the Julio Claudian Dynasty lasted until the death of Nero in 68AD. Then another civil war unfolded. The empire then survived until the assassination of Commodus in 192AD launching yet another civil war that lasted 4.4 years until the rise of Septimius Severus. The death of his son Caracalla in 217AD sparked another battle for the throne for 2 years.
Obviously, one government doe NOT guarantees peace. The utopian nonsense these people are talking about is all a thirst for raw power and even the end of a Republican form of government where we the people will have no right to vote at all. Schwab and his WEF make it sound this is all for your benefit rather than those like Schwab who just want to control everything and everyone.
So when I say China will become the next Financial Capital of the World, make no assumptions. What we think is the solid world of politics as it is today will be no more on a global scale.

There is a shortage of commonly prescribed flu and viral medications in America. Flu season hasn’t even peaked for the year and there is simply not enough medicine to treat everyone who falls ill. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) claims that respiratory viruses are increasing across most the nation. In fact, one in five tests for the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) came back positive last week.
I wonder how many RSV patients will be diagnosed with COVID. People may reconsider not getting the vaccine when they’re sick with any virus, desperate to believe any lie that will make the illness run its course. Perhaps I would not be so sick right now had I took the vaccine despite all the research that it does more harm than good. The pharmaceutical companies have access to data, A LOT of data, and any shortages are suspicious.
This is a supply shortage, even though they’re claiming otherwise. Manufacturers need time for mass production, and pharmaceutical companies place orders well in advance. Remember how everyone seemed to avoid the flu amid COVID? How our immune systems were suppressed with masks, disinfectants, no sunlight, and mRNA vaccines? It makes sense why the general public would assume this flu season would be less eventful since every flu case was deemed the coronavirus. We never achieved herd immunity from the coronavirus, according to the “experts,” but we as a general public certainly lowered our own immune systems these past few years.
Tamiflu is in very short supply, especially for children. Albuterol inhalers are also commonly out of stock. Amoxicillin and other common antibiotics are not available. Most of these medications require a doctor’s prescription, so hoarding is not an issue. The FDA is guiding pharmacists on how to make a child’s dosage of antibiotics from an adult’s pill. Canada is experiencing a children’s Tylenol shortage, and this issue will not be limited to the US.

President Trump and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross both raised serious concerns about the malign intents of Chinese nationals involved in the efforts of Huawei Telecommunications to infiltrate U.S. communication networks.
The Trump administration tried to block Huawei from involvement in the 5G telecommunications system in the United States claiming there were national security interests that could be compromised.
However, Washington DC politicians, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, both of whom were recipients of Chinese donations, defended the expansion efforts of Huawei and accused the Trump administration of “Asian hate.”
In the background, to reinforce a false political narrative surrounding the Asian hate theme, in 2021 the Biden administration removed the China initiative, an investigation of PRC influence in U.S. institutional systems, from the focus of the U.S. justice system.
Yet today, the Biden administration announced the arrest of two Chinese nationals, and the indictment of 11 more, for exactly what the Trump administration had feared:
(DOJ) In three separate cases in the U.S. Attorneys’ Offices for the Eastern District of New York and the District of New Jersey, the Justice Department has charged 13 individuals, including members of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) security and intelligence apparatus and their agents, for alleged efforts to unlawfully exert influence in the United States for the benefit of the government of the [People’s Republic of China] PRC. (more)
Court documents did not name the company; however, Reuters identifies the company as… wait for it…. Huawei:
(Reuters) – U.S. prosecutors said on Monday they have charged two Chinese nationals with trying to obstruct prosecution of a Chinese telecommunications company that a person familiar with the matter identified as Huawei Technologies Co Ltd (HWT.UL).
Prosecutors said the case is representative of a broader pattern of unlawful influence efforts by China and announced they had also charged 11 people in two other cases with spying for Beijing or intimidating Chinese dissidents.
In the case involving the alleged efforts to tamper with the Huawei investigation, prosecutors said two Chinese intelligence officials attempted to recruit a U.S. law enforcement agent to work as their spy. However, the recruit was actually working as a double agent for the United States.
Chinese nationals Guochun He and Zheng Wang were charged with trying to interfere in the prosecution, the prosecutors said. Court documents did not name the company, but the complaint referenced the same dates in which the U.S. unsealed its charges against Huawei, in 2019 and 2020. (more)
