Russians are much admired and Putin is loved by the Chinese, for good reasons

by Jeff J. Brown for The Saker Blog Crosslinked with: http://chinarising.puntopress.com/2018/06/17/russians-are-much-admired-and-putin-is-loved-by-the-chinese-for-good-reasons-china-rising-radio-sinoland-180618/ https://youtu.be/txVSSlfUD6o https://soundcloud.com/44-days/russians-are-much-admired-and-putin-is-loved-by-the-chinese-for-good-reasons-c-rising-r-sinoland Looking back at the rocky, mutually suspecting and disrespecting relations between Russia’s and China’s leaders, 1917-2000, this photo speaks volumes about the depth of Putin’s and Xi’s mutual friendship and the importance of Sino-Russian cooperation on the world stage, highlighted at last week’s SCO summit in Qingdao. They are brothers, amigos, and trusted partners on the world

China’s only danger: A ‘Generation X’ who believes they aren’t communist

by Ramin Mazaheri for The Saker Blog When you have a world war, there is no question: We are all living in a postwar world. However, not all subsequent generations have been shaped the same. In debunking the standard view of the Cultural Revolution in this series – and also showing that, when it came to politics and non-musical revolutions, John Lennon was the status-quo company man and Mao was

Do you prefer the 1% or The Party? (Or: Why China wins)

by Ramin Mazaheri for The Saker Blog 2018 China: the envy of the world – just check the scoreboard. The Chinese communists kicked out the the Japanese, then the Europeans, held off the American neo-imperialists at Korea and then Vietnam, provided spectacular economic growth during all that time, ended rampant drug abuse, forbid ethnic quarrelling, and is the economic envy of the world in 2018. Maybe you don’t want to

Once China got off drugs: the link between opium and ‘liberal strongman’ Macron

by Ramin Mazaheri for The Saker Blog The link between Chinese opium money and rich Western families and monarchies (Astor, Forbes, Kerry, Delano, Roosevelt, etc.) is already well-known, though it’s not publicised enough in the Mainstream Media. What is even less publicised is how in 2018 the drug trade creates a country – Columbia, Mexico, even Afghanistan, certainly the United States, etc. – which becomes so socially, culturally, financially and

The Rape of Russia (Saker blog exclusive interview)

by Lars Schall for the Saker blog Introduction by Pepe Escobar: William Engdahl is one of the world’s top geopolitical analysts. His books – from Century of War to Full Spectrum Dominance – are absolutely essential to understand how the self-described exceptional nation created and expanded its global hegemony tentacles. A measure of his influence is that as much as Engdahl may be dismissed or derided across the Beltway, the

Mao’s legacy defended, and famous swim decoded, for clueless academics

by Ramin Mazaheri for The Saker blog Part 4 will take a very different tack…. There is a great and hilarious story about Mao during the Cultural Revolution, which is relayed in the Western university-standard textbook, China: A New History by “the West’s doyen on China” – John King Fairbank. In late 1965 the rumblings of the Cultural Revolution had begun, due to grumblings over corruption, revisionism (“taking the capitalist

When Chinese Trash saved the world: Western lies about the Cultural Revolution

by Ramin Mazaheri for the Saker blog Of the West’s the three main “Reasons Why Red China is Evil and the West is Morally & Ideologically Superior” propaganda campaign, the Cultural Revolution outranks the Great Leap Forward and the legacy of Mao for being far and away the most difficult for non-Chinese to truly get a handle on. Most leftists won’t even touch it, much less defend it an inch…and

Daring to go beyond Western propaganda on the Great Leap Forward’s famine

by Ramin Mazaheri for the Saker Blog Between 108 BC and 1911 AD there were no fewer than 1,828 recorded famines in China, or nearly one each year. Since 1962 there should have been in China – if their historical average remained unchanged – 50 serious famines. Instead there have been zero. When one discusses “China” and “famine” – how often do you hear this totally valid point of view? I

Old vs. new scholarship on the continent of China: an 8-part series

by Ramin Mazaheri for the Saker blog Europe is a continent and China is not only because the winners write the history books. There is no scientific reason Europe is a continent: Europe is not a separate land mass, nor does it even sit on its own tectonic plate – we may as well call Canada a continent. China’s land mass area is nearly identical with Europe’s. What makes West

West attacks China’s Social Credit System to deflect from its fascist panopticon

Western racism and hypocrisy foaming at the mouth over China’s constitutional changes

by Jeff J. Brown (cross-posted with China Rising by special agreement with the author) Above, entitled Be Just – Even to John Chinaman, this is one of thousands of racist political cartoons against the Chinese in the United States, especially with the passage of the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act. It legalized the extermination of tens of thousands of Chinese, who were hunted down like dogs, shot, hung and scalped for

These days, that seems so long, long ago! There was time, 1945-1990, when America ruled the noncommunist world like a brutal

BRICS is Eurangloland’s canary in the imperial mines

The Two Americas at Charlottesville

by Jimmie Moglia I wasn’t in Charlottesville during the upheavals in this summer of discontent, but I know some who were. They sent videos, photos and witness’ accounts – thanks to which, I followed those threads of reasoning on which truth is frequently suspended. That is, I formed an idea of what happened, and, perhaps more important, of what the event means, symbolizes, suggests and foretells. Given the turn taken

Trump and American History Have Been Assassinated

by Paul Craig Roberts When Trump was elected I wrote that it was unlikely that he would be successful in accomplishing the three objectives for which he was elected—peace with Russia, the return home of offshored US jobs, and effective limits on non-white immigration—because these objectives conflicted with the interests of those more powerful than the president. I wrote that Trump was unfamiliar with Washington and would fail to appoint
