Globalization 2.0: China Ushering in Newer, Shinier New World Order!

04/30/201741 Comments

Two weeks ago I discussed the baby steps that China and Russia are taking toward creating an alternative financial infrastructure to the SWIFT Network and the Washington Consensus (read: Wall Street Consensus). The steps may be small, but they’re all going in the same direction: away from a US/NATO-led world order and toward a world where there is a China/Russia-led alternative.

The latest example of this Chinese-led world order will be on display in Beijing in mid-May, when heads of state from 28 different nations convene the first Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation. The forum comes amid a flurry of diplomatic activity between China and a bevy of countries along China’s proposed trillion-dollar “Silk Road Economic Belt” and “Maritime Silk Road” known as the “Belt and Road Initiative” (BRI).

This diplomatic activity, much of which has been making headlines in recent weeks, includes:

  • A pledge to deepen cooperation between Greece and China as part of the BRI.
  • A commitment to strengthen ties between Egypt and China under the BRI framework.
  • An offer to involve India in the BRI, starting with the BRI forum in Beijing next month.
  • An agreement between Russia and China to “conjugate” their relationship in the BRI and in the Eurasian Economic Union.
  • And even, incredibly, an invitation for the US to join the “symphony” of the BRI and the Chinese-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB).

And that’s just the headlines from April. You may not know it if you’re only consuming #fakenews from the western MSM propaganda outlets, but the American-led world order of the post-WWII era is being severely tested right now.

So it looks like freedom is on the march and the globalists are on the run. Right, gang? We’ve got this globalism thing licked! Bye-bye, American Empire and hello, peace, cooperation and stability!

…If only. Sadly, as I stressed last month, these new initiatives aren’t really steps away from globalism, they’re just steps toward the creation of a different global order. Globalization 2.0, if you will.

    Pakistan has warmly welcomed Britain’s desire to become a key partner in China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) after the United Kingdom (UK) expressed its willingness to join the multi-billion dollar project, Radio Pakistan reported on Friday.

    well – first Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation – acronyms are always de rigueur

    Belt And Road Forum – Barf!! – works for me.

      BRI… Banque des Règlements Internationaux? Bank of International Settlements?

      The other leading world power to present?

    • nosoapradio says:

      in addition to the obvious BRIC reference (Belt and Road forum for International Cooperation (“Brazil, Russia, India, China (South africa))

      …if acronyms have any importance…

      bank initiatives and so-called world cooperation… “barf”…. belt and road…

      Totally unimportant of course but the “BRI” to the French means “Banque des Règlements Internationaux” or “Bank for International Settlements” which, though unkonown to the vast majority of the French population, has been a key and central world power defining the state of the planet as it is today. Poetic justice in “their” eyes?

    Thanks for the Larken Rose video. I would venture to guess a large number of people are waking from their slumber. I have never in my life seen so much anger from the average Joe and Josephine–ever. I’m hearing increasing talks about Crimes Against Humanity trials for the “elected” filth in D.C., Banksters and Permanent Bureaucrats. Short of that—–physical dismantling of these places of “honor” is close I believe. Demolition teams need to be assembled for these facilities and the residences of those who are the corrupt—that would be all of them. It is quite literally a criminal enterprise now lead by the Banksters giving orders to fools and they listen and obey.

    We know we’ve been hoodwinked or a great number of us do. In the tens of millions and ready to roll at a moments notice.. Truth shall prevail and justice shall soon follow. Lets just hope it’s done before the Blue Helmets arrive (well, they’re actually here now assembling their forces against us).They’ll lose.

    Kissinger is everywhere and everywhere he goes, he plants seeds of destruction. I don’t pretend to understand all the Geopolitics of this but I have to ask, what is Australia’s role here, or should I say, Ausmerica’s role?

    • PeaceFroggs says:

      Australia’s role will always be subservient to the Queen (Commonwealth)…

      …but what I find interesting, while globalization 2.0 (as James puts it) is slowly taking shape, is that simultaneously England and Wales decided to Brexit. (Ireland & Scotland’s future yet to be determined)

      Meaning, after Brexit, it would seem some in England are pushing for a new revived English Empire (Commonwealth) thereby creating its own trading Block in order to counter the Euro Block of Nations.

      However this time around, unlike 1776, after the creation of the Federal Reserve Bank (England finally conquered America in 1913), it appears as though the English are counting on Washington to be among its Jewelled crown. (Wall Street and London, or the Pound and the dollar Block?)

      We seem to be witnessing 3 new trading blocks emerging as the US dollar (End of Bretton Woods/leaders of the free world order is collapsing). On one side we have the American NWO being replaced by a new British/American Commonwealth vis a vis a European market vis a vis a BRICS market…

      Yet to be determined….will all 3 trading blocks share the same new global reserve currency known as SDR as an alternative to the dollar? If so, then the Ruble and the Rupee will have to be included sooner or later.

    This makes perfect sense as the corportocracy from around the globe are heavily invested in each other’s enterprise. Exxon and Rosneft cut deals with each other to develop hydro carbon resources in several different national jurisdictions. But this is just the corporate universe. Above these giant conglomerates sits the western dominated banking cartel that issues almost all the world’s money and credit which represents the totality of all assets on the planet. This is where the friction between apex elites comes to being. Who is to be first among equals as the old world order, same as the NWO, ascends to global governance? Will it be the dynastic western family bankingclique or the new upstarts of the eastern plutocracy? Nowhere mentioned in any of these deals are any kind of rights for the rest of humanity or of any consideration for the life support systems this planet miraculously bestows to all life here in this corner of the cosmos. This is the perennial failing of those who seek to rule human kind and all of nature in their own interests as other people’s interests and the environment are marginalized or worse through all the corrupt, devious,perverted scientific and violent means that human kind has ever thought.

    AIIB President meets with Trump admin officials

    The President of the AIIB Jin Liqun is now back in Washington talking to officials from the new Trump administration.

    “Our conversations focused on cooperation between corporate American and our bank. How can we work together to achieve win-win situations? Because I think with your technology you can help those countries doing something better,” Liqun said.

    The AIIB allows any company to compete for contracts on projects even if the firm is not based in a member country. The same applies when it comes to jobs, and Liqun says several Americans have been hired in key positions.

        Trump adviser suggests U.S. should embrace China-backed infrastructure bank

        Opposition to AIIB ‘is strategic mistake,’ James Woolsey says in op-ed

        A top adviser of Donald Trump has suggested that the U.S. should end its frosty opposition to a China-led development bank.

        Beijing launched the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank in 2014 as a way to expand its influence over international development. The U.S. wanted China to invest more in existing institutions like the World Bank and has refused to join AIIB, even though 57 other nations are members or in the process of joining.

        The U.S. has worried that China may use the AIIB to unfairly advance its economic and political agenda.

        In an op-ed in the South China Morning Post Thursday, James Woolsey, a former head of the Central Intelligence Agency and now an adviser to President-elect Trump, said the Obama Administration’s opposition to the AIIB was a “strategic mistake.”

        “We understand China’s desire to reform global institutions that reflects its increasing footprint in the global economy and global security architecture,” Woolsey said.

          “James Woolsey, a former head of the Central Intelligence Agency …said the Obama Administration’s opposition to the AIIB was a “strategic mistake.” Arrggghhh…that guy!

          From the Washington Post this January:
          “Woolsey has been a key player in the national security firmament since the late 1970s, when he served as undersecretary of the Navy in the Jimmy Carter administration. He has held other roles under former presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, culminating with the post of director of the CIA between 1993 and 1995.”
          https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/wp/2017/01/05/former-cia-director-james-woolsey-quits-trump-transition-team/

          In short, Woolsey is a Washington insider and you should see a furiously waving red flag when he, or any American elitist like him, starts supporting any other global initiative than the one led by the usual NWO cabal.

          I had my hopes that what China was sponsoring with the One Belt One Road would be a fresh start of some sort. But as James points out, it’s the same corporatocracy with their fingers in the new pie, but with Chinese calligraphy on their business cards.

    Chinese investment in Australia surged 11.7 percent last year to A$15.4 billion ($11.5 billion) amid booming demand for agricultural assets and infrastructure, according to a report released Monday.

    A record 103 deals were signed with Chinese companies in 2016, with 76 percent of those reached with private firms, KPMG and the University of Sydney said in the report “Demystifying Chinese Investment in Australia.”

    YOKOHAMA (Jiji Press) — Bank of Japan Gov. Haruhiko Kuroda on Tuesday welcomed the role of the China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank in promoting regional infrastructure investment.

    It is impossible for the Asian Development Bank and the World Bank alone to meet huge infrastructure demand in Asia, Kuroda said in a question-and-answer session after his speech in Yokohama.

    It is good that many countries join the AIIB, the central bank governor said.

      In Rothschild&Co own words:

      Our services in Greater China

      The Rothschild family businesses can trace their first contact with China to the 1830’s. Our business was one of the first Western business institutions to re-establish relations after 1953.

      Rothschild Global Advisory provides impartial, expert advisory and execution services to large and mid-sized corporations, private equity, families and entrepreneurs. We have direct access to the Chinese and North Asian markets through our local Chinese bankers who are based on the ground in Shanghai, Beijing, and Hong Kong, and supported by a partnership in South Korea.

    For my tastes, the following link provides one of the best interviews I’ve been privileged to hear. I keep running into Bonnie Faulkner’s work, so I should put her in my favourites, I guess.

    And I’m not alone in my assessment: “Precise answers to adept questions. Saker at his finest.”

    https://soundcloud.com/guns-and-butter-1/in-search-of-russia-the-saker-367

    Apparently Faulkner did a 2nd interview with The Saker, and this will be out in the near future.

  11. herrqlys says:

    For at least two years now there has been a vicious diatribe by the legacy media, and equally crass demonization by western political mouthpieces, against Russia and Vladimir Putin in particular. Yet our ill-informed general public knows nothing of substance about either, and in large part still draws imagery from the (easily invoked) propaganda of the Cold War years.

    The following video, a Russian TV production, simply blows away the stereotypes. It’s 2 hours long, but deserves full and complete attention. I sincerely hope that some of you can make time for this.

    From the above video I followed an annotated link and got the bonus feature: the famous video about the Crimean crisis, including a lot of interview footage with Vladimir Putin, that has finally been edited with English subtitles.

        I’ll sum it up for you, folks:

        Ratings are for idiots. These people lie and fabricate, they don’t stand behind any of their “ratings” and “advice” and they are generally not to be held accountable for anything. Ever.

        Pretty much the same as your political and religious leaders.

      This kind of documentation is important. It is an historical record. All these great references and Corbett’s article serve as a “Colossus of Rhodes” to shed light on the economic deceptions of our time.
      These will definitely come in handy in the future.
