QUESTION: With the bank runs in China, do you still think China will surpass the US economy? What about Pelosi’s trip? China’s response was more shock and see than anyone expected.
ANSWER: Nothing has changed. But you have to understand that the decline in the US economy also benefits China’s rise. The Democrats are attacking corporations and hiring 87,000 IRS agents to harass the people. There comes a point where it no longer pays to work. They do not understand that. I used to manage money in the USA and quit in 1985. I handed back all the money and told clients I was retiring. The auditors were crazy. They view NOBODY as honest, so they will not leave until they can charge you with some infraction. Mine was the tabs on our files were “pink” not “red” so they were going to write me up for improper record keeping. I am not one to cower. That was it. I said, fine. I would close the business. IRS agents are no different, but now they will be armed. Later, the government had the audacity to say I was prejudiced against Americans and refused to manage their money. I warned Congress that they were forcing everyone offshore and thus began the hedge fund business. We are at such a crossroads, and the future does not look bright.
As far as Nancy Pelosi’s recent trip to Taipei, it demonstrated the complete lack of international expertise that has engulfed Washington. There appears to be a complete lack of intelligence, and that is by no means confined to just Democrats. Anyone who supported her trip is totally incompetent in international politics. The trip was supposed to demonstrate US confidence in Taiwan’s leadership, but instead, it provoked a reaction from China that undermined the entire region. Beijing has apparently emerged with much more confidence than ever that it could retake Taiwan by force if necessary.
There were some people in the White House and the US Defense Department who told her to postpone her trip. Pelosi had announced her trip on her own and then faced political pressure not to back down once her plans became public. On July 31, 2022, Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, attended a reception to celebrate the 95th founding anniversary of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), which fell on August 1. Her sheer stupidity was a slap in the face to Jinping, showing her total ignorance of international politics.
The Biden Administration has been forced to downplay the trip’s significance. In the process, the Biden Administration was forced to reaffirm its commitment to the United States’ long-standing “One China” policy, which recognizes Beijing as “the sole legal government of China,” while the US just ignores any claims to rule Taiwan. The Biden Administration has been forced to try to tell China that nothing has changed despite the stupidity of Pelosi.
China dramatically put on an expert show of military force that was awesome. Beijing, within hours after Pelosi left Taipei, showed to the world that China’s military spectacle was without precedent in scope and scale. Beijing is merely waiting for the right moment to take Taiwan. Beijing no longer trusts that the American policy of “One China” is in play with all the war drums beating over Taiwan. Biden has stated that the United States has a “commitment” to aid Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion. Even NATO has joined in the rhetoric against China. The timing of Pelosi’s trip merely reinforced the support for Jinping in the coming Chinese Communist Party leadership.
This demonstration showed the world just how far China has progressed militarily since the poor performance during the 1996 Taiwan missile crisis. They can take Taiwan with air and sea assets. China conducted, for the first time, simulated attacks on Taiwan in the actual airspace and territorial waters. China is trying to demonstrate that Taiwan should surrender rather than see its people die and its infrastructure destroyed, as is taking place in Ukraine.
In addition, China has confirmed to the entire world that it could, at any time it chooses, severely disrupt or more likely outright block critical global air and sea trade routes. That would cut off all Taiwanese-produced semiconductors while staring them out from imports. Pelosi’s trip has backfired completely, and instead of showing support and confidence in Taiwan, she has illustrated its vulnerability.
Worse still, the Biden Administration’s sanctions on Russia have destroyed globalization. It has also forged a hardline alliance between China, Russia, North Korea, and many more states swinging to their side against what many call the arrogance of the United States. This reminds me of the Peloponnesian War over the arrogance of Athens, and many joined their enemy, Sparta, and Athens lost.
The people of Panama have been protesting the obscene cost of living for weeks. President Laurentino Cortizo has promised to lower the cost of basic necessities such as food and energy, but the people are not satisfied. Teachers began protesting in July and went on an initial three-day strike. This act of defiance inspired other groups who also took to the streets to call for price reductions.
Inflation in Panama sits at 4.2% as of May, while the unemployment rate hovered around 10%. Fuel costs have soared nearly 50% since January of this year. The issue here is that despite the country’s economy growing, the benefits have not been passed on to the people in any way. Many highly-skilled professionals, such as doctors, left the country long ago for countries where they’re paid competitively and access to medical care has become increasingly difficult.
Protestors blocked the Pan-American highway, which is the main route for most of Panama’s food. Even the Catholic Church stepped in during June to mediate the battle between the people and government. The first round of discussions mediated by the Catholic Church resulted in the government freezing the cost of 72 products. Additionally, the government will now allocate 6% of GDP to education by 2024. The Inter-American Highway, connecting Panama to the rest of Central America, was cleared but the supply constraints and resulted in significant losses.
Panama’s economy grew 17.8% in 2021, and 13.6% in Q1 of 2022. There is no reason for Panamanians’ quality of life to decrease when their economy is in a surplus. The protests will continue as the people have realized that their corrupt government does in fact work for them

The White House hosted a “Summit on the Future of the Covid-19 Vaccine” on Tuesday featuring a combination of administration officials, scientists, and executives from the pharmaceutical industry. The summit was chaired by Dr. Ashish Jah, the White House Covid-19 Response Coordinator. Attendees included Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), as well as Dr. Francis Collins, the former head of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Also in attendance were the representatives of pharmaceutical companies, including Moderna and Pfizer. There is no question the advent of vaccines blunted the complete force of the Covid-19 pandemic as Fauci pointed out in his address to the group. He said that “vaccines have saved over 2 million lives and prevented 17 million hospitalizations” even though the World Health Organization pointed out, initially, the vaccines were not distributed equitably among poor nations while the pharmaceutical companies were reaping profits. But the emphasis of the Summit was on how vaccines will be developed and distributed.
In his opening remarks, Dr. Jah extolled vaccines, saying they are “truly a miracle of human ingenuity and 70% of Americans are now vaccinated.” But Jah also said vaccines “need to be better.” Fauci talked about science and manufacturing working together to make sure vaccines are distributed equally and the private sector and science are working together to advance vaccine technology. Additionally, it was pointed out the Biden Administration is committed to the development of new vaccines. Fauci then presented slides of the projects the NIH was funding and developing with vaccine manufacturers.
Included in this was a “Mosaic Approach,” a new form of vaccine that takes on multiple parts of the virus and could help protect against future Covid variants. Participating in the summit were Paul Burton of Moderna and Angela Hwang of Pfizer. Fauci’s presentation of the future of vaccines included the idea that vaccines need to be updated because the Covid virus is continually mutating.
He emphasized the partnership between academia and the private sector. As effective as Fauci’s speech was, it also seemed as if he was giving free advertising to the drug companies with the idea of maximizing the benefits of the partnership of science and technology. The transformative power of the new generation of vaccines continued to be pointed out and regional manufacturing of vaccines was repeatedly pointed to as a way to get more shots in arms. This point came from both Ashish Jah and Angela Hwang. Regional manufacturing and licensing is a way for pharmaceutical companies to increase profit. Moderna’s Paul Burton said manufacturing is a key part of the future, and the company had recently made deals to build new plants in Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Kenya. In the future, vaccines will be administered through nasal sprays and patches. Angela Hwang pointed out that “probably two and a half billion people have received the Pfizer vaccine. That’s an incredible wealth of real-world evidence that we’re sitting on… I think that we have a great opportunity to also help us to understand, how can we design new therapies.” Hwang added Pfizer is “happy to be on this journey.”
The summit gave a history of the mRNA vaccine and said the potion originated through a part of the Department of Defense known as the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The development of the vaccine came as a result of research to help American troops if they’d been exposed to biological warfare on the battlefield. Through that program and others, DARPA had been doing the groundwork for the United States to produce a rapid cure for a pathogen like Covid-19 for years. The pharmaceutical companies capitalized on developed technology and took it further.
Summit panels continually talked about the fact not enough of the population has been vaccinated, and Dr. Francis Collins claimed the pandemic exposed the vulnerability of the American health care system. Collins said there was a need to build public trust even though, initially, the vaccines were not “distributed with equity.” This included the fact that the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Covid-19 Vaccines Global Access (COVAX) has to do a better job of vaccine distribution through what was termed an “allocation framework”. In closing, Dr. Ashish Jah emphasized, again, the importance of public and private partnerships. The summit was, overall, informative and a great day for the pharmaceutical companies.
The impact of such governmental backing of just a few companies most certainly reinforces the market brand. The presenters didn’t do much reflection as to what they could have done better during the pandemic. Rather, industry and government collaboration on more advanced vaccines suggests the government will increasingly be involved in helping fund the few winners of the vaccine and drug development business.
COMMENT: I went to sign up for a dating site. It asks only if you are interested in men or women. I am really confused since we do not know what a woman is anymore. I think it needs to be more clearly defined.
(1) Someone who identifies as a birthing person
(2) Someone who has been transformed into a birthing person for appearance’s sake
(2) Someone who has been transformed into a birthing person who can give birth
(4) Someone who is a natural birthing person
(5) Someone who is a retired natural birthing person
(6) Someone who is non-binary and identifies as whatever depending on the moment
REPLY: My question is after Harris identifies as a woman, which is now a debatable term, she then states what she is wearing. Maybe I’m too old. But I do not understand why someone would state what they are wearing unless they are saying they are not wearing a traditional dress. Why stop there? Should we now identify the type of underwear she is wearing? I have never gone to a meeting, ever, where you stated what you were wearing. Never in all my meetings with Maggie did she ever once state her gender.
You could tell with COVID their mental state depending if they wore a mask and demanded yours had to be over your nose. But this is far beyond that. This has all gone insane.
Quite a remarkably telling situation when the foreign leaders of France and Canada begin to think they have some political responsibility to deliver their opinions on decisions within the United States government.
Yes, their pronouncements are fraught with stupidity considering their own national laws on abortion were/are much more stringent than the United States, but that belies the point of their insufferable arrogance. The globalist outlook is structured around their own sense of importance.
The protestations from Macron are particularly ridiculous since France has a legal limit of 14 weeks for abortion [LINK].
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the same man who forced all women in Canada to undergo a vaccine requirement or remove themselves from society, took the hypocrisy of his own “women’s health” policy one step further than Macron.
It is worth noting, “there are currently no Canadian laws that explicitly guarantee access to abortion as a right,” [LINK] putting the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the exact same place as the Canadian government position on the issue.
However, Canadians more than 23 weeks into their pregnancy cannot get abortions in Canada. Instead, according to CTV they travel into the United States to get the procedure.
“According to a study published by Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights in 2019, no providers in Canada offer abortion services more than 23 weeks and six days into a pregnancy. Those who are this far into their pregnancy and looking for an abortion often travel to the United States for the procedure instead, which would be in jeopardy should Roe v. Wade be overturned.” (more)
In a 6-3 ruling [pdf HERE] the Supreme Court has ruled that New York state cannot require an individual to prove a “special need” in order to carry a firearm for self-protection. The ruling, likely to have ramifications for other gun restricting states, affirms the constitutional right of an individual to carry a firearm, and blocks the efforts of states to make the individual prove they have a need for one.
Writing the majority decision Justice Clarence Thomas concluded there was no historical requirement that law-abiding citizens show the kind of special need for self-defense required by the New York law to carry a gun in public. Indeed, as Thomas wrote, there is “no other constitutional right that an individual may exercise only after demonstrating to government officers some special need.” [Ruling Here]
SCOTUS BLOG – The state law at the heart of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen required anyone who wants to carry a concealed handgun outside the home to show “proper cause” for the license. New York courts interpreted that phrase to require applicants to show more than a general desire to protect themselves or their property. Instead, applicants must demonstrate a special need for self-defense – for example, a pattern of physical threats. Several other states, including California, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, and New Jersey, impose similar restrictions, as do many cities. (read more)
Leftists, particularly those who have recently become drunk on power from their COVID dictates, are apoplectic about the supreme court limiting the power of government to control the constitutional rights of the individual. It’s quite remarkable to watch the far-left lash out against the institution that has the role in our government to protect the constitution.
Primary election contests continue today in Alabama, Georgia, Virginia and Arkansas with run-off elections.
One of the key contests people are watching is Representative Mo Brooks of Alabama, a six-term congressman, facing Trump-endorsed Katie Britt in a runoff election for the Alabama senate seat. President Trump rescinded his endorsement of Mr. Brooks earlier this year and endorsed Ms. Britt.
