The Great Withdrawal

06/21/202047 Comments

An extraordinary thing happened this week: Taro Kono, Japan's Defense Minister, got up and announced that the Japanese government would be halting its plan to deploy a new multi-billion-dollar missile defense system. Tokyo had committed itself to buy the Aegis Ashore system from the fine folks at Lockheed Martin back in 2017, a.k.a. the height of the hysteria over North Korea's missile provocations. But Kono has put the plans "on hold" indefinitely, citing budget and schedule overruns.

What makes this announcement so unusual is that it took everyone by surprise. Not just the governors of the prefectures where the system was to be sited—who, according to Kyodo News, were only informed about the change in plans in a last-minute phone call—but even the US government, which Nikkei Asian Review reports was not informed of the decision ahead of time.

What? Japan scrapping a multi-billion-dollar defense deal with a key US contractor without warning? What's going on here?

To those who don't follow geopolitics and military matters in the Asia-Pacific, this may not sound like the most extraordinary thing to happen in 2020—and, to be fair, given the year we're living through perhaps it isn't. But the Japan-US military alliance has been the backbone of the security order in the Asia-Pacific since the end of the Second World War, and the idea of Japan making such a monumental decision unilaterally without even informing its American counterparts beforehand would have been unthinkable even a few years ago. Yet here we are.

In fact, it's not just the Asia-Pacific. From Europe to the Middle East to South America, an extraordinary change is taking place, one that is seeing US power and influence waning around the world. Is the post-WWII era of "Pax Americana" truly over? If so, what does that mean for the future of global geopolitics?

Join James for this week's edition of The Corbett Report Subscriber as he examines the waves of troop drawdowns and withdrawals that the US is engaging in right now, the waning of American influence around the world, and what it means for the death of the Old World Order.

    Summer starts today.
    June 20, 2020 – James Corbett’s The Great Withdrawal.

    …To the conspiracy realists who have long noted that the Old World Order could never become the New World Order without the controlled demolition of America’s economic and military might, it comes as no surprise.
    Regardless, the end of an empire and the shift over to a new system are the types of world-historical moments that the history books are written about (by the winners, of course)…

    …If you thought 2020 has been a rollercoaster ride, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet . . .

    In his video is some old footage of G. Edward Griffin.
    Note Griffin’s tie, which holds a clue to the era.

      That is a pretty good video.

      G Edward Griffin is a cool source… the who guy laid it all out back when Youtube can in film cans via the mail. Back then he thought communists were just a thing by themselves rather then just a branch of the real problem.

      75 minute vintage video

      This address by G. Edward Griffin, given in 1968, is as current as today’s headlines.
      Mr. Griffin shows that the Leninist strategy for conquest involves two kinds of revolution:
      One is violent;
      the other is non-violent.

      Griffin also highlights the writing of Manning Johnson.
      Johnson was an African American man who joined the communist party after he was convinced they were trying to help the democratic party support black communities.
      After climbing the ranks and realizing they were using him and his fellow black Americans to begin a race war in the future, he retreated from the organization to begin warning his fellow Americans on this agenda.

    The hidden hand is certainly closing up shop in america in preparing the way for the global government.

    America has been nothing but an engine for world government. Now that america has served its use in the so-called “great work of the ages,” the hidden hand is now in the process of destroying “her,” and the people themselves have been psychologically conscripted to take part in the controlled demolition/destruction.

    America was always nothing but one big animal farm and slavery never really went away, it changed its form into economical slavery; debt slavery through a monetary system they have no understanding of. The american people helped to fund so much of what has gone into building and preparing the agenda for the hidden hand.

    This move by Japan is simply another sign on a wall that is filled with signs of what is to shortly come for america and the rest of the planet.

    The american people have failed themselves, each other, the people of other nations and most importantly the Creator.

    America is the great hypocrite among the nations, professing freedom but exemplifying the exact opposite. A nation of superficial and superstitious fools.

    We have some fake food for thought in Recommended Viewing, namely Edward Bernays and Group…

    I will focus on last two minutes, when authors astray really badly.

    Sure, it’s not good to base individual identity on groups membership, but that is the outcome of decades of pushing people towards individualism. People lost a “feeling” for society.

    “the existence of society based on individual rights and liberties is dependent on a population which has developed this capacity for individual-consciousness, or in other words,on a society of individuals who understands themselves and treat others as individuals first and foremost”

    Then goes further and citing E.Neumann talking about group-consciousness predates individual-consciousness.

    Sounds ok, just those right and liberties, how they came about?
    They were established/given, after our forbears fought for them, our forbears that were more about group-consciousness, that had feeling for society.
    And now these rights are taken away as we drown in era of individualism and there is no society to fight back!

    Then we come to culmination (that pissed me off to write):paraphrasing

    “proclivity to of individuals to engage in group-identification is danger to society and also a regression of consciousness (me:WTF). A pathological tendency that needs to be overcome”

    That should bring authors Gold Bernays medal!!!

    Unfortunately, observing many “social” movements today one might even agree with authors. BLM instead of ALM, or Stop Police Violence or Freedom. And all the myriad of movements for small particulate group interests. This groups are surrogate-society.

    Machiavelli suggested making groups and make them fight. Today’s social engineers went further, they created “society” of atomized individuals. He would be delighted.

    To overcome this miserable state of affairs some substantial worldview change has to happen.
    Society and individual should conceptually be seen as ying/yang, not like separate entities but intertwined entities.

    • Duck says:

      The single person has no power without the group identity… you are correct that the group identity has been attacked.
      ‘Culture of narcissism’ sees that as a natural growth of industrial society by EM Jones (of ‘Culture wars’)shows that ethnic and religious identity have been attacked deliberatly in order to create classes (such as suburban ‘white people’) that have no value other then personal needs/wants.

      The “right” enjoys this since they become good consumers and easy voting blocs

      the “left” likes this for the same reason and since such people dont have civic virtue and vote themselves goods that bankrupt the state and accelerate the collapse of the present order and bring revolution

      BLM and most movements today are mostly astroturf

  5. Jed says:

    The troop draw down is perhaps comparable to when they handed in the muzzle loaders for repeaters or when they backed 50 cavalry horses out and pulled in a tank. Cops are going to be sent home as well, too expensive and they have guns besides, this population goes to its room when it’s told. Most everyone keeps their mouth shut in public as well, sealed shut.

    • Duck says:

      The ability of a society to protect rights of persons in that society depends on the members having either a respect for such rights outside of materialism OR a group identity that means that an attack on the rights of one is an attack on all.

      The idea that a group identity is more ‘primitive’ is also silly since a ‘totally individualistic’ person who cares ONLY about their own needs and rights is basically an infant- or a psychopath.

    Hi James and Corbeteers!
    Is the Pax Americana Empire is waning or just shifting gears? With all the setup for Africom being the West/China showdown, I worry that this on the back burner as the hot war distraction from Event 201 agendas or are the Wall Street/Military coffers just saving this for later. I used to think this Deagle site was three letter nonsense until lateley.
    I’ve been reflecting on the current Hybrid War that is well under way and how that has been manifesting with the all-out global agenda rollouts and the color revolution hot-spots in the streets which follow the Gene Sharp CIA Color Revolution handbook model to the anti-lockdown protest. It’s weaponized outrage all leading up to and off the cliff of America’s Top Prez selection 2020. The leader of the BLM has been quoted as saying, We have been trained to pomote Marxist ideology, “we’re trained Marxists”.
    The left has been weaponised & spoon-fed parroting a devolved/depraved message of “I hope the Trumpers get the CV for not following orders of lockdowns and mask wearing”. Rediculous clown world citizens. It’s considered pedestrian to not be moronic outrage clown these days, as the normies are all losing it and have nothing to say other than what FB psychographics tells them to. The fact that all the lockdowns happened in every country around the world at the same time like a coodinated all-out assault on the world populace with a significant spike in mortalities closely following the lockdowns is an indication of the nebulous but deadly form of soft warfare we are experiencing on the Event 201 front. Here is an article Vanessa Beeley shared documenting the spike in deaths after lockdowns – This Hybrid World War we are experiencing is manifesting in homes, schools, communities everywhere around the world with the very same issues of loss of freedoms and each government pretends like they are all not together under the world banks(Fed Plan “One Bank to Rule Them All”. The autocrats will try and sell us crumbs of our past freedoms back at high prices like tin-pot dictators as long as we virtue divisiveness. Well, I am not outraged, but I find myself constantly dissapointed with positions people take around me and in my community. I am also surprised in finding a few like minded people who really need to share their experiences and work to network intelligent solutions with. These are the people I am interested in, these are my people!

    It is big news. You can tell it’s big because it’s not being reported, at least not by any mainstream sites whose headlines I’ve checked. Instead there’s just the usual slush of personality politics and the latest engineered panic.

    Sometimes I look in on Stratfor, not for truth or accuracy, but to see what the neocons and potty people are brewing for us. George Friedman has a thing about Japan and Poland as the new bulwark nations and regional superpowers. In his out-there predictions he likes to talk of a struggle between Poland and Turkey as a determining conflict while Japan sorts out the east. Presumably the US is going to sort out the rest.

    Is this a way of saying that NATO is stuffed and that a new crazy plan is needed to replace the old crazy plan? If so, Japan’s rejection of Lockheed might mean they need a new new crazy instead of new crazy.

    Back when the US was expanding it actually managed to conquer enough of Mexico to make Winfield Scott governor of Mexico City. There was talk of securing the whole country but cooler heads pointed to the less populous territories and vast coastline to the west which could be digested into the nation state. A bit like Bismarck and Putin wanting only what they could swallow.

    More prudent superpower aggression by the US may not be popular with the likes of Lockheed (or Israel) but allowing rivals to make mistakes and bicker with one another while using diplomacy might just work. Instead of barging in, try knocking. If you can’t digest, don’t swallow. And if you can’t swallow, don’t even bite.

    Obviously leaders are now so compromised (Epsteinized) that a moment of rationality can cost a career or even a life. But let me dream on a while.

    • Duck says:

      George Friedman wrote “The coming war with Japan’ back in the 90’s and everything he said kinda made sense (nations need to control their land mass and have secure borders so that they can afford a big navy, and they then want to control the oceans and they then to control the nations FACING them on the other side of those oceans though the ‘villain’ was more China by the time I read that book.

      If I was Japan (assuming actual ‘free to act’ leaders) I’d pick China over the US which is looking rather like the Soviet Union just before it fell over. I cant remember when, but the Philippines were looking like they were going to jump ship to china a few years back I guess they changed their mind…lol

  8. Libertydan says:

    The term, “The United States of America” has been misused in the above article. I believe that it would be more appropriate to say “The United States Inc.” or “The United States Government” or even “The United States Empire”.
    “The United States of America” was, (and still exists in many minds), as a “Union” of Free and Independent States. It has, or had, a “Constitution” giving it very specific limited powers, and a “Bill of Rights” whereby it promised to preserve basic Individual Human Rights for living breathing people (not Corporations).
    Indeed, do to some very cleaver Deception by a small group of World Bankers, the “Union” of States called “The United States of America” has been surplanted by a Central Corporation with corporate tentacles in every State.
    The “Union of States” known as the “United States of America” was a great step forward in the defining of, and the preserving of, Individual Freedoms.
    It is sad to see that Good things often go bad, yet it is only in being able to recognize what was Good, that we are able to build something New, and perhaps even better.

    Thanks to the Just for Fun section, I ran into a video any metalheads in the audience might enjoy. This band from the 60es seems to have been seminal for the entire genre and the many subgenres. It was so much ahead of its time that it, sadly, flopped. Many of the artists that are usually listed as the source of various metal icons may have been influenced heavily by Coven and its frontwoman, Jynx Dawson.

      The “Billy Jack” movies
      Back in the 60’s and early 70’s, sometimes independent film makers could get distribution of their films because of the network of independent theatres and independent drive-ins.
      Wikipedia gives a brief summary of how Tom Laughlin (Billy Jack) booked the theatres. There is much more to the story. It took a lot of guts to pull it off.

      The Billy Jack films were extremely popular with my age group at the time. We would quote parts of the film and stuff like that.

      This short film clip portrays how people really did dress.
      I well remember it on the screen, as does my younger brother.
      Billy Jack (1971) “One Tin Soldier”
      (2 minutes – with music)

      Billy Jack is a “half-breed” American Navajo, a Green Beret Vietnam War veteran, and a hapkido master.
      A group of children of various races from the alternative school go to town for ice cream and are refused service and then abused and humiliated by Bernard Posner, son of a local corrupt politician.
      This prompts a violent outburst by Billy. (Kick scenes)

      Later, Jean (school director) is raped by Bernard, who also murders a Native American student.
      Billy Jack confronts Bernard, whom he catches in bed with a 13-year-old girl, and sustains a gunshot wound before killing him with a hand strike to the throat.

      On November 20, 1971, Coven performed “One Tin Soldier” on the Dick Clark ABC-TV Saturday-afternoon program American Bandstand.

      rumour has it… when Jynx said “NO” & promptly gave the president of columbia records a swift knee in the groin, her fate (& Coven’s) was sealed ~ forever blacklisted. if he had only just asked her to sign the contract in blood, she woulda been more than happy to oblige.

  10. MagicBullet says:

    Maybe the withdrawal has to do with election year and Trump being able to brag about his promises?

    And the Lockheed deal cancellation has more to do with Japan wanting to stay out of debt considering the crash in GDP because of Corona and they just don’t want pressure from the US so just did it, or actually did tell the US behind the scenes, seeming not to do it to project independent power?

    These withdrawals can still be a diplomatic fake like a Michael Jordan shoot fake, dribble, then dunk. It’s all too early to make conclusions.

  11. cu.h.j says:

    I guess we’ll find out exactly what it means soon enough. One thing I am trying to practice is living in the present while doing as much as I can to influence the future-which at this point isn’t much.

    Being an American myself some of the comments were accurate about the general public. There’s a lot of ignorance and just going along because it’s easier. My maternal family is from Australia so they had a different culture and valued education and doing things that were ethical and not supporting things that were oppressive. There’s so many oppressive things that our moral values are corrupted like the meat industry and clothes from China made in sweat shops. People get numb to the harm of what they support and just try to tune it out and the psychology of cognitive dissonance takes hold.

    Do “we” deserve what’s coming? I don’t know. I don’t think so. I don’t think anyone deserves slavery and manipulation. Is it better to die fighting? I think it is. It is better to fight for what is right than to acquiesce-to go along with the plan in hopes of eking by like a hungry rat.

    Masks – Some potential legal ways NOT to wear a mask

    There is some good information at the link.

    For example, an employee can site an OSHA regulation.
    Employers do not like messing with OSHA. Even OSHA’s paperwork is horrendous for an employer.

    Another example:
    Recently on June 19th, the tyrant dictator Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins demanded that all Dallas County businesses enforce that customers entering their store don a mask. The business could be fined $500 for each violation.
    Thus, if the store is caught with a customer who does not have a mask, the store could be fined.
    Little kids are exempt, because they are always picking their nose and slobbering and touching things.
    This is all over the news.

    Here is the rub, (because I can read).
    The Ordinance itself states:
    “Face coverings do not need to be worn in the following circumstances: …
    (#3 of 6)
    …When doing so poses a greater mental or physical health, safety, or security risk.….

    If anyone asks about your physical health…
    In the U.S., you are not required to give out personal medical information.

    “fellow traveler’s” signalling Need for speed: Japan supercomputer is world’s fastest
    Fugaku is 2.8 times faster than the second-ranked US Summit supercomputer … built with government backing and used in the fight against coronavirus…
    numerologically: 2+8 = 10 (1 & 0 computer binary digits) — 10th month is oct, & bill gates birthday 10/28. of course, 10 reduced to single digit is one ~ alpha, as well as “new beginnings”. in the petaflops speeds, there’s a lot of fives, & 5 often means destruction, a horrible example: 9/11/2001 added & reduced to single digit ~ 5. ok, back to gates… his birth year 1955, when i found out the 55 tripped me out, didnt comment on it, simply posted his 10/28/1955 birth date as binary ~ 10101010 which reduces to 1111. will be interesting to see how much longevity he has.

Supercomputer Fugaku, the pride of Japan and the namesake of Mount Fuji, vaulted to the top of the 55th edition of the Top500 list with 415.5 (*4+1=5,5.5) Linpack petaflops, marking a win for system builder Fujitsu, for Arm-based supercomputing and for the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic in which Fugaku is already engaged. In reduced precision, measured via the new HPL-AI benchmark, Fugaku achieved a record 1.4 (*1+4=5) exaflops.

    Looking Forward to the End of Humanity
    Covid-19 has spotlighted the promise and peril of ‘transhumanism,’ the idea of using technology to overcome sickness, aging and death.
    By Adam Kirsch
    June 20, 2020 12:01 am ET

    It sounds bitterly ironic now, in the midst of a global pandemic, but not long ago some of the most forward-looking people in the world believed that humanity was close to abolishing death. “If you ask me today, is it possible to live to be 500? The answer is yes,” said Bill Maris, the founder of Google Ventures, in 2015. Three years later, biomedical researcher Aubrey de Grey estimated that “people in middle age now have a fair chance” of never dying.

    Eternal life through advanced technology seems like a pipe dream for a society that, until recently, had trouble manufacturing enough masks to save doctors’ and nurses’ lives. Yet Covid-19 may turn out to be just the kind of crisis needed to turbocharge efforts to create what its advocates call a “transhuman” future. With our biological fragility more obvious than ever, many people will be ready to embrace the message of the Transhumanist Declaration, an eight-point program first issued in 1998: “We envision the possibility of broadening human potential by overcoming aging, cognitive shortcomings, involuntary suffering and our confinement to planet Earth.”

    Transhumanists, many of them associated with nonprofits and think tanks like Humanity Plus and the Extropy Institute, have long been driven by the fear that our entire species could be wiped out by nuclear war, asteroid collision, technological accident—or a pandemic. In March, as the coronavirus was spreading around the world, the science writer Tom Chivers observed that it proves the need for technological protection against such existential threats: “Humans could be around for a billion years, or more, if we don’t screw it up. Coronavirus won’t be the thing that kills us all, but it’s a bloody good illustration of how something could,” he wrote in the online magazine UnHerd.

    People have always feared death and dreamed of escaping it. But until now, that hope has been formulated in religious terms. Transhumanism promises that death can be conquered physically, not just spiritually; and the movement has the support of people with the financial resources to make it happen, if anyone can. Jeff Bezos, Peter Thiel and Elon Musk are among the Silicon Valley moguls who have invested in life-extension research. In 2013, Google entered the field by launching the biotech firm Calico, short for California Life Company……

      Damn! That’s good money.

      A decade ago (I was old then), after the 2008 crash, I was desperately trying to find a job which paid decent. For an old guy, I was in healthy shape.

      I applied as an Engineer for a Railroad in my area. Engineer was a polite term for the grunts who check and switch the tracks, couple the freight train cars, and such. Long hours, hard manual labor, and any kind of weather, riding the rails out of town. I knew what to expect, and the esprit of the fellas working around the place was what I wanted.
      It was fun just to be around the guys. Everyone was Union (Unions are not always common in Texas).
      I was in better physical shape than most all the other younger applicants in the room. I made it into the final cut when three bosses pulled me in for a sit-down. They liked me, I could tell. I told ’em straight up: “Fellas, I know I am old, close to where most retire. But look at me. I am strong and healthy and I really, really want this job.”
      You could see it in their eyes. They felt me.
      Well, I did not get the job.
      Destiny is what it is.
      But I loved just even having that exposure and experience.

    Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) in China – Bat viruses – National Institutes of Health – Dr. Fauci – Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)- EcoHealth Alliances

    White House abruptly cut off funding to coronavirus grant research, Dr Fauci says
    The White House has abruptly cut off funding to the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) coronavirus research, said Dr Anthony Fauci, the director of the NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

    Mr Facui made the revelation when speaking to Congress on Tuesday about the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

    Representative Marc Veasey, a Democrat from Texas, first asked Mr Fauci why the funding was cut in April during a House Energy & Commerce Hearing…

    …The cancellation of the grant came after reports surfaced about EcoHealth Alliances’ research with a virologist at Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) in China, who works with bat coronaviruses.

    This lab became the centre of a conspiracy theory with the US federal government speculating that Covid-19 did not originate at a Wuhan wet market but instead in WIV.

    During a coronavirus press briefing on 17 April, a reporter asked why the US would provide a grant to China amid this pandemic with rumours circulating about where the virus originated…

    …EcoHealth President Peter Daszak tweeted that it was an “obvious case of political interference” on Tuesday following Dr Fauci’s testimony in front of Congress.

    “Eventually, we’ll all know the shoddy truth of how a conspiracy theory pushed by this administration led @NIHDirector to block the only US research group still working in China to analyse Covid origins,” he wrote. “Thanks to this China can now do the research, we can’t!”

    Virologists at the Wuhan lab have long disputed claims the virus broke out from the facility.

    USA: The reports of my demise have been highly exaggerated.

    1. Did usa military actually try to change regime in Venezuela or did they just send a squad and notify the Venezuelans they were coming so to get such type of negative and/or demoralizing reports going? Would not surprise me in the least with so much of the top end infiltrated by new world odor.
    —It would seem much MORE hay would have been made regarding “Trump’s inept Venezuelan ploy” and therefore leadership, in their never relenting attempt to spear Trump with anything negative.

    2. Claiming things are worse now with the Norks than prior to the Trump-Kim talks. Really? By what std of measure? The quantity of Nork missiles flying over Japan? By Kim’s pre Trump belligerence?

    3. Since the troop postings in Germany and Afghanistan (and most everywhere else) have been a waste of money, it would seem a [wise move] rather than whatever negative spin upon the usa could be assigned. Reduction of overseas troops was something Trump ran on. Maybe the story should be, he actually is doing it, good.

    All that and I would much prefer a libertarian (or better yet no one) at the helm, than a Trojan Horse catering to the Khazarian mafia, Zionists, or similar. Nor do I get upset in the least when someone burns a colorful cloth called a flag. Better that than them going postal.

    I’m just saying, the usa isn’t its corporate-govt-military-media complex. It is joe and jane six pack, and no, you haven’t seen anything at all out of them yet. Unfortunately they always wait until they are dragged kicking and screaming into reality.

    Beware the dragon of joe and jane. Nice people can become downright vicious if you corner them and start poking them.

    It would seem the weasel powers understand that to some extent and are doing their best to off them via disease, vaccines, GMOs, chemtrails, G5 pseudo telecom, etc. So only the easily manipulated Marxists they indoctrinated in their schools are left to be their slaves.

    Joe and Jane, its time to wake up!

    A little underwhelmed with Japan. It looks good, but they have a major military base sitting on their forehead. It looks nice- what they did- but Trump also appeared to shuck off the globalists by withdrawing funding from the WHO. Of course…we all know where that money ended up.
