Tariffs: Donald Trump's trust in trade war tactic is big electoral gamble

Donald Trump’s obsession with tariffs may be based on one of his few core beliefs. Or it may be part of a grand strategy to win votes. Either way, triggering a trade war between the world’s two biggest economies represents a huge gamble ahead of next year’s US presidential election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looking at the stock market right now, I think Trump lost the gamble.

Trump administration gets war marching orders from Tel Aviv: American analyst

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s anti-Iran threats are nothing but “bombastic” comments stemming from the same war rhetoric already used by Washington against Libya, Syria and Iraq, which itself receives “war marching orders from Tel Aviv,” says an American political analyst.

Rodney Martin, a former congressional staffer based in Scottsdale, Arizona, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV after Pompeo cancelled his scheduled meeting with German officials in Berlin to pay an unannounced visit to the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, where he continued attempts to sow discord between the two neighboring countries of Iran and Iraq.

The Israeli newspaper Israel Hayom, owned by top Trump donor Sheldon Adelson, has published in Hebrew a leaked draft of the Trump administration’s “Deal of the Century” for the Israel-Palestine conflict. The draft was given to the newspaper by an official from Israel’s Foreign Ministry, which is currently headed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The plan, which has been drafted by President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt, is expected to be released this June after the conclusion of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, according to Mondoweiss.

Trump nominates Shanahan as next defense secretary

President Donald Trump has seen enough of Patrick Shanahan, and liked what he saw.

After months of expectations, Shanahan, an industry veteran who was thrust into the Pentagon’s top spot after Jim Mattis resigned, is the president’s official pick as the next secretary of defense.

In a statement, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Shanahan’s nomination was “based on his outstanding service to the country and his demonstrated ability to lead” the Defense Department. He has served as acting Defense Secretary since Jan. 1.

Shanahan took to Twitter to thank the president for his confidence.

Luongo: 'Economic-Warfare-Man' Strikes Again

It’s getting tiresome watching Donald Trump’s bipolar presidency. It seems he can’t let a day go by without making some massive announcement to raise tariffs, threaten sanctions or overthrow a government.

Every 24 hours is another exercise in chasing the Trump Reality Show around. Every lull in the perpetual news cycle has to be seized upon to create more chaos so he can validate his insanity.

Trump has so many plates spinning there’s no way he’s actually thinking anything through. Take the latest fiasco, Chinese trade talks.

One day “Talks are going well,” the next “We’re raising tariffs to 25%.”

Trump Floats Proposal to Cancel 2020 Elections

On Sunday, Donald Trump re-tweeted a post by the arch-reactionary evangelical preacher and prominent Trump confidant Jerry Falwell, Jr. calling for the president to extend his term from the constitutionally mandated four years to six.

Referring to the Democratic Party-led effort to label Trump a Russian collaborator, the tweet read:

“Trump should have 2 yrs added to his 1st term as pay back for time stolen by this corrupt failed coup.”

By re-tweeting this proposal, Trump is, in effect, threatening to cancel the 2020 elections and declare himself above the law. Article II of the US Constitution states that the president “shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years.”

Rep. Al Green fears Trump 'will get re-elected' if he's not impeached

Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, one of the first lawmakers who called for President Trump's impeachment, expressed his fears on Saturday that if Democrats don't pursue his ousting, Trump "will get re-elected."

Green was asked on MSNBC about how unpopular impeachment was among voters. MSNBC correspondent Phillip Mena pressed him with recent polling numbers from Quinnipiac showing 66 percent of voters were against impeachment -- including 38 percent of Democrats and 70 percent of independents.

"Are you concerned that impeachment talk may actually help the president's re-election?" Mena asked.

Grewal: The President's Tax Returns

This Article examines whether congressional committees enjoy the unrestricted authority to demand a President’s tax returns. It concludes that they do not. Though a federal statute seemingly compels the IRS to furnish, on request, anyone’s tax returns to some congressional committees, a statute cannot transcend the constitutional limits on Congress’s investigative authority. Congress enjoys a near-automatic right to review a President’s tax returns only in the impeachment context.

After analyzing the general constitutional principles, the Article briefly examines the House Ways & Means Committee’s disputed request for President Trump’s tax return information.

Trump Derangement Syndrome Blocks Action On Immigration, Higher Ed Crises (They're Related)

So I sit down after dinner to watch some political shows on TV. What are they talking about? The Mueller Report. Still talking about it, still getting heated about it.

Two issues, immigration and Higher Ed, are most urgently in need of legislative and/or Executive Action. We’re not getting it, though, as long as so much of our political energy is going into this tiresome campaign to find President Trump guilty of something—anything.

The Times said it received “information contained in the returns from someone who had legal access to it” and “confirmed significant findings using other public documents.”

The information is not from the more recent time period House Democrats are demanding to see. The Treasury Department again refused to provide House Democrats access to Trump’s tax returns Monday.

'I'd Call That Spying': CIA's Ex-Counterintel Chief Says FBI Conducted Espionage On Trump Campaign

US acted on vague Mossad tip-off when it sent strike group to Middle East – report

A US aircraft carrier group and bomber task force were deployed to the Middle East after a tip-off on a “credible threat” from Iran, which came, conveniently vague and timely, from Israeli spy agency Mossad, it has been reported.
At an April 15 meeting in Washington, Israeli National Security Council chief Meir Ben-Shabbat passed along a warning to US National Security Advisor John Bolton, senior Israeli officials told Axios. The information Bolton received was left vague: the attack could hit a US target in the Persian Gulf, or maybe Saudi Arabia, or maybe the UAE.

Trump Floats Allowing Service Academy Athletes to Turn Pro Before Finishing Military Commitment

President Donald Trump floated the idea of providing a waiver for military athletes who hope to turn pro before their service time is up.

“They’ll serve their time after they’re done with professional sports,” Mr. Trump said on Monday, the Washington Times reported.

Trump noted that the current rules prevent military schools such as West Point from recruiting the best players.

Ilhan Omar Thinks She’s Trump’s ‘Biggest Nemesis’

Radical Representative Ilhan Omar declared herself an absolute “nightmare” and President Trump’s “biggest nemesis” in an interview for the Huffington Post.

Omar, completely unaware of the fact that it is the ignorance behind freshman Reps such as herself, Rashida Tlaib, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that drives criticisms against them, said the reason she is vilified is that the President seeks to “marginalize our communities.”

No dear, he seeks to amplify everything you say. Because each time you open your mouth with anti-Semitic rants, defense of dictators, and sympathy for terrorists, it helps to all but guarantee reelection in 2020.

“Clearly, I am a nightmare ? because [Trump] can’t stop really thinking about ways that he can continue to use my identity to marginalize our communities,” Omar claimed.

Israel wants the Trump administration to attack Iran, but U.S. mainstream media ignores Netanyahu’s instigating

Why is the Trump administration escalating its economic war against Iran, a dangerous policy that could eventually lead to a shooting war and trigger a world recession? Iran in 2019 is no danger to U.S. interests anywhere. Tehran is not threatening American shipping, or military bases; its allies, like Hizbollah in Lebanon, have not targeted U.S. civilians or soldiers for years.

The U.S. is squeezing Iran mainly because Israel wants it to. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in a de facto alliance with Saudi Arabia, and has warm relations with the other Gulf states and with the Abdel Fattah el-Sisi dictatorship in Egypt. Iran is the only regional power that is deterring him from completely annexing the West Bank. Iran is also a major supporter of Hamas, the resistance movement in Gaza.

Donald Trump Should be Prosecuted for Failing to Register as an Agent of a Foreign Government

US President Donald Trump has proved himself not to be an agent of the American people, but an agent of Israel.

With his administration’s decision to send an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf, the latest of his escalations in the Middle East, it is only appropriate that he be required to register as an agent of a foreign government.

It is the law that in order to work in the US on behalf of a foreign government, you need to register as such. Recently, there were two high-profile cases where people have been sent to prison for failure to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, namely, those of Paul Manafort and Maria Butina.

As we are all too well aware, Donald Trump has done nothing for America.

White House Divided On Venezuela? Major Crisis In Trump Administration

A recent publication by The Hill newspaper claims that the events in Venezuela were a challenge for the administration of US President Donald Trump.

According to the article, the US leader and his National Security adviser, John Bolton, developed a tense relationship due to divergences of opinion about a possible military intervention in Venezuela.

The author cites the example in which Trump claimed that US influence on the formation of foreign state institutions ended, calling for the end of the war in Afghanistan and the withdrawal of troops from Syria. In contrast, Bolton tries to persuade the country’s leader to use force.

For Paul Pozner, an expert on Venezuelan affairs at Clark University, Trump prefers to join a position that strengthens his position in the US, and interference in Venezuela will have a negative impact on it.

1933 Banker Plot to Remove FDR Was a Ruse

The Illuminati bankers staged the coup to give FDR credibility as Wall Street's nemesis. As I will show, they routinely used such tricks to build up their Presidential puppets.

The conspirators (members of the "American Liberty League") approached retired Major General Smedley Butler to use 500,000 veterans to remove FDR and become a Mussolini-like figure.

butler-medals.jpgSmedley Butler was absolutely the LAST man you would approach if you were serious. The most decorated Marine in history, Butler recently had been forced to resign by Herbert Hoover for calling Mussolini a "mad dog" and warning that his fascist cohorts "were about to break loose in Europe." Butler refused to retract his remarks and thus became a national hero overnight.

However, if you wanted someone to expose your coup as he did; (thought it "smacked of treason,") Butler was the go-to person.

Trump contradicts Bolton, Pompeo on military option against Venezuela

US President Donald Trump has contradicted his national security team on pushing for a military intervention against Venezuela, saying he and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin share the goal of a peaceful end to the crisis in the Central American nation.

"He is not looking at all to get involved in Venezuela, other than he'd like to see something positive happen for Venezuela, and I feel the same way. We want to get some humanitarian aid. Right now people are starving," Trump told reporters on Friday.

Trump's reference to Russia’s hands-off approach towards Venezuela stands in contrast to insistence by his Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that Russia is part of the problem in Caracas. Pompeo claimed earlier last week that President Nicolás Maduro was about to flee Venezuela until Russia persuaded him to stay.

The notorious US mercenary firm Blackwater has returned to Iraq to train thousands of ISIL terrorists in the Washington-occupied Ein al-Assad base in al-Anbar province, a Lebanese newspaper reported.
The Arabic-language al-Akhbar newspaper reported on Saturday that Blackwater, along with other security firms, has returned to Iraq since the start of 2018 after Washington's heavy pressures on Baghdad to issue a relevant license.

According to the report, a source close to the US charge de affairs in Iraq Judy Hood said that Blackwater has transferred the US military equipment from Jordan to Western al-Anbar province in full coordination with Ein al-Assad base, adding that the company is now training the ISIL terrorists in the base.

Nancy Pelosi fears Trump won't 'respect the election' if he loses by a small margin in 2020 and says the President will 'poison the public mind'

Nancy Pelosi is already anticipating that Trump will not be gracious in defeat if he loses the 2020 presidential election by a slim margin.

Speaking to the New York Times, the Speaker of the House says that the Democrats need to win by a landslide so Trump will step down from the presidency without challenging the results.

'If we win by four seats, by a thousand votes each, he's not going to respect the election,' Pelosi says. 'We have to inoculate against that, we have to be prepared for that.'

It would not be unlike Trump, who - even in victory - claimed during the 2016 presidential election that 'millions of people' illegally voted for opponent Hillary Clinton.

“I wonder how he goes to work every day,” says a longtime aide to John Bolton, “because deep in his heart he believes the President is a moron.”

The joke is on Bolton. Having been handed a near impossible task in overthrowing the leftist regimes of Venezuela and Nicaragua, Bolton and his little neocon cabal have been set up for failure – and Trump doesn’t like failure. When it comes to neocon foreign policy, you can reverse the Trumpism that the President adorns his speeches with: Are you tired of losing yet?

And defeat looms large in the neocon effort to bring down Maduro.

Sharyl Attkisson: How Media Narratives Became More Important Than Facts

Authored by Sharyl Attkisson via The Epoch Times,

The day that I told CBS News I wished to leave my job as investigative correspondent ahead of my contract, I didn’t give a reason. I didn’t see the point because the problem wasn’t fixable.

Nor was it isolated to CBS News.

My own take is that - as our industry has changed in ways that have become undeniable to most - I was a bit of the canary in the coal mine. By that, I mean I believe I was among the first to really pay attention to the increasingly effective operations to shape and censor news—the movements to establish narratives rather than follow facts—and to see the growing influence of smear operations, political interests, and corporate interests on the news.

Between October 2018 and February 2019, when Washington formally began the process of leaving the INF Treaty, it quickly set about developing a new arsenal of missiles, penning $1.1 billion in deals with defense contractors in that three-month time span, according to a new report by anti-nuclear weapons activists. That runs in sharp contrast to the US' own claims in February that it would continue to respect the boundaries of the treaty.

Trump easing offshore drilling safety rules from Deepwater

The Trump administration moved Thursday to give oil and gas companies more flexibility in meeting safety requirements imposed after the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon explosion, which killed nearly a dozen people and was the worst offshore oil disaster in U.S. history.

The revised rules, which govern safety standards at offshore wells, come as the administration pushes to expand drilling off the U.S. coast, although court challenges and opposition from many coastal states have slowed its efforts.

The new safety changes were sought by the industry but fiercely challenged by environmentalists.

Interior Secretary David Bernhardt said in a statement the administration was acting to eliminate “unnecessary regulatory burdens while maintaining safety and environmental protection offshore.”

Trump is impotent

I have heard it joked about in Iran that, while US President Donald Trump has attempted to undo every major achievement of his predecessor, President Barack Obama, he will himself be leaving behind nothing that a future president could roll back, because, well, he will be leaving nothing behind.

More than three years into his presidency, Mr. Trump can hold up nothing as either a domestic or foreign policy coup. His promise to build a wall on the border with Mexico, and to have Mexico pay for it, has not been fulfilled. And it is unclear how long his policy of deploying troops to stop migrants at the US’s southern border can be sustained.

“THE HAMMER” — Ultra-secret Supercomputer System Used by CIA/NSA to ‘Wiretap’ Trump

President Obama’s Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper and his Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director John Brennan oversaw a secret supercomputer system known as “THE HAMMER,” according to former NSA/CIA contractor-turned whistleblower Dennis Montgomery.

Clapper and Brennan were using the supercomputer system to conduct illegal and unconstitutional government data harvesting and wiretapping. THE HAMMER was installed on federal property in Fort Washington, Maryland at a complex which some speculate is a secret CIA and NSA operation operating at a US Naval facility.

Trump says he will declassify 'everything' about warrants Obama used to spy on his campaign as he suggests James Comey was 'leading the effort' and the scandal will be 'bigger than WATERGATE'

President Donald Trump claimed on Thursday that it's likely former FBI Director James Comey led an effort to spy on his campaign in 2016.

And he told a Fox News Channel interviewer that he intends to declassify documents related to controversial surveillance warrants 'pretty soon.'

White House officials have vented both publicly and privately for more than a year about warrants the Obama Justice Department obtained from a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court to monitor Carter Page, then a Trump campaign foreign policy adviser.

The president signaled Friday morning that a reckoning was near.

'Finally, Mainstream Media is getting involved - too “hot” to avoid,' he tweeted, citing a front-page New York Times story about 'effort to spy on Trump Campaign.'

Vowing to take a fresh approach, Kushner on Thursday gave the administration's strongest indication yet that the plan will not propose two states for Israelis and Palestinians - for decades the US-backed goal in marathon peace talks.

"If you say 'two-state', it means one thing to the Israelis, it means one thing to the Palestinians," Kushner said at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

We said, you know, let's just not say it. Let's just say, let's work on the details of what this means," he said.

Having Admitted to “Lying” and “Cheating” while CIA Director, Pompeo Drops Another Whopper after Failed Venezuelan Coup

The lack of scrutiny given by the mainstream media to Bolton and Pompeo’s claims is yet another troubling sign of the transformation of many mainstream media outlets into faithful government stenographers.

Just a week after the former CIA director and now secretary of state admitted that the agency prior to and under his direction “lied,” “cheated” and “stole,” Mike Pompeo has delivered another claim that, despite his recent admission of dishonesty, has been regurgitated with little scrutiny by a variety of media outlets.

BARR BATTLE BOILS OVER

***
Neal Katyal: The system is working - NYT: “Many who watched Attorney General William Barr’s testimony on Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, which followed the revelation that the special counsel Robert Mueller had expressed misgivings about Mr. Barr’s characterization of his report, are despairing about the rule of law. I am not among them. I think the system is working, and inching, however slowly, toward justice. When it comes to investigating a president, the special counsel regulations I had the privilege of drafting in 1998-99 say that such inquiries have one ultimate destination: Congress. That is where this process is going, and has to go. We are in the fifth inning, and we should celebrate a system in which our own government can uncover so much evidence against a sitting president.”

How the Pentagon Took Ownership of Donald Trump

Donald Trump is a con man. Think of Trump University or a juicy Trump steak or can’t-lose casinos (that never won). But as president, one crew he hasn't conned is the Pentagon. Quite the opposite, they've conned him because they've been at the game a lot longer and lie (in Trump-speak) in far biglier ways.

People condemn President Trump for his incessant lying and his con games -- and rightly so. But few Americans condemn the Pentagon and the rest of the national security state, even though we’ve been the victims of their long con for decades now. As it happens, from the beginning of the Cold War to late last night, they’ve remained remarkably skilled at exaggerating the threats the U.S. faces and, believe me, that represents the longest con of all. It’s kept the military-industrial complex humming along, thanks to countless trillions of taxpayer dollars, while attempts to focus a spotlight on that scam have been largely discredited or ignored.

One thing should have, but hasn’t, cut through all the lies: the grimly downbeat results of America’s actual wars. War by its nature tells harsh truths -- in this case, that the U.S. military is anything but “the finest fighting force that the world has ever known.”>>>

Trump Likely to Be Barred from Addressing UK Parliament During State Visit

During his upcoming state visit to the UK next month, Donald Trump will most likely not address the UK Parliament, as House of Commons Speaker John Bercow continues to oppose the idea of the US president addressing the body.
According to a report by The Guardian, the US president will visit the UK between June 3 and June 5. During the visit, Trump will attend ceremonies marking the 75th anniversary of D-Day, June 6, 1944, when the Allied forces (Great Britain, France, the Soviet Union and the US) invaded Northern France (then occupied by Germany) through beach landings during World War II.

"I feel very strongly that our opposition to racism and sexism and our support for equality before the law and an independent judiciary are hugely important considerations in the House of Commons," Bercow said back in 2017, after UK Prime Minister Theresa May first invited Trump for a state visit.

Last week, Bercow and opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn also both refused an invitation to attend a banquet to be held in honor of Trump's state visit in June.

The Guardian, citing anonymous government sources, wrote that it is unlikely Trump will be allowed to address Parliament>>>

Einar Tangen on Trump's Ignorance

Einar Tangen: Trump Ignorant about Geo-Economics Principles, US to Experience Major Job Losses
TEHRAN (FNA)- Einar Tangen, Political and Economic Affairs Commentator, says US-China trade war is an evidence supporting that US President Donald Trump is unable to perceive the difference between the real estate branding business and geo-economics.

In an exclusive interview with FNA, Einar Tangen said he believes the US-China trade war will eventually hit the US more than China, saying, “US consumers, especially lower and middle class families, who have used cheaper international goods to offset their stagnant real disposable income will be faced with sharply higher costs of clothes, furniture, shoes and appliances… [resulting in] more expensive US exports and significant job losses.”

Einar Tangen is an American-Chinese Political and economic affairs commentator based in Beijing. He served as the President of the US State of Wisconsin International Trade Council, and the Vice-President for the American Association of Cost Engineers International (AACEI).

President Trump suggested on Wednesday that his administration had warned the Russian government to stay out of Venezuela after two Russian planes carrying military personnel arrived in Caracas this week, a move that places another significant obstacle in the White House’s slow-moving effort to oust President Nicolás Maduro.

During an Oval Office meeting with Fabiana Rosales, the wife of Juan Guaidó, the Venezuelan National Assembly politician recognized by the Trump administration and 50 other countries as the rightful interim president, Mr. Trump said that Russia needed to see its way out of the conflict.

“Russia has to get out. What’s your next question?” Mr. Trump told reporters.

On Thursday, The Washington Post newspaper reported, citing unnamed White House sources, that US President Donald Trump is unlikely to launch any long-term military intervention in Venezuela, while US National Security Adviser John Bolton was allegedly urging him to do so.

US President Donald Trump on Thursday called for an end to the conflict in Venezuela, calling it a "brutal repression" of the country's nationals.

"The brutal repression of the Venezuelan people must end, and it must end soon," Trump said during a national day of prayer service at the White House.

Why Biden’s toughest opponent is his criminal justice record

***

For many groups in the Democratic Party, the Crime Bill was seen as a devastating expansion of the police state disproportionately shouldered by communities of color. It is seen as a law that is racist in part and one that has limited the economic, social, and educational opportunities among demographic groups already facing significant challenges in each. Although many in the Democratic Party see portions of the Crime Bill, including the assault weapons ban and the Violence Against Women Act, as positives, it is Biden’s authorship and support of the law as damning. (It should be noted that the only other 2020 presidential candidate who was serving in Congress in 1994, then-Rep. Bernie Sanders, voted in favor of the bill.)

As chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Mr. Biden pushed legislation that expanded the War on Drugs and as a Senator and Vice President, he did little to reform America’s addiction to treating drug use as a public safety rather than public health problem.>>>

Trump’s Remorseful Ghostwriter

When Donald Trump announced his candidacy last year, one of the qualifications he listed was his best-selling book, “The Art of the Deal.” Part memoir, part business-advice book, it presents Trump as the savviest of negotiators. But there’s a problem: Trump didn’t actually write the book—at least not according to Tony Schwartz, the co-author and ghostwriter of “The Art of the Deal.” Schwartz spent more than a year with Trump back in 1986. He hasn’t ever talked publicly about the experience of working with him—until now.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yesterday, on the radio show, I noted that Trump's negotiation strategy did not line up with his bok and speculated it had been ghost-written. As it turns out, this was the case!

Trump Coup Biggest Violation of Constitution in History – Former CIA Officer

President Trump says the Deep State tried and failed to remove him from office in a coup. Former CIA Officer and whistleblower Kevin Shipp says the attempted coup on Trump was a global conspiracy. Shipp explains, “Yes, this is a coup. This is the most shocking violation of the Constitution and criminal activity in the history, not just of America, but of a western government. Much of this rises to the level of treason. People need to understand how shocking this is. It was a clear conspiracy. There will be arrests and indictments without question. . . . This was a coup. It was a conspiracy. It was criminal activity. These people need to be indicted, charged and need to be put in prison, and if they’re not, then our Constitution is nothing more than a sham. This was a coup against a duly elected President, and people need to understand how serious this is.”

Russia Ready to Discuss New Nuclear Deal With US, China

One day after reports that President Trump was pushing for a new nuclear arms treaty with Russia and China, the Russian Foreign Ministry has issued a statement confirming that they, too, are willing to negotiate on the matter. China has yet to directly respond.

Yesterday’s report suggested that Trump’s primary goal for any treaty was to place new limits on Russia’s nuclear arsenal. Russia’s Deputy FM Sergei Ryabkov said that Russia wants a joint statement of all three nations repudiating any use of nuclear weapons.

Talk of new nuclear negotiations is a surprise after the US unilaterally withdrew from the Intermediate Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty. Many feared this would usher in an era where disarmament talks just didn’t happen.

Trump Slammed as 'Threat to World Order' Ahead of UK Visit

The US president last visited the UK in July 2018, with his visit being met with protests and even the launch of a "Trump-baby" blimp in London in mockery of the head of the White House.

Labour Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry criticised the upcoming visit of US President Donald Trump to the UK in June in light of his recent decision to pull-out of the unratified international Arms Trade Treaty. In her opinion, the move was "the final confirmation that [Trump] is not the leader of the free world".

Kim-Putin summit reaffirms onset of multipolar future

The summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and President Vladimir Putin was significant on various levels and reaffirms the onset of a multipolar world.

Knowing your enemies and understanding your friends is a maxim to live by. At the level of nation states, at a historic moment, defined by Gramsci’s rather overused but nonetheless prescient formulation, “the old is dying and the new cannot be born,” it is more than a rule to live by, it is a prerequisite of survival.

Failing to understand their enemies was central to the grim fate that befell Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi and the countries they led, Iraq and Libya. Thus far, the North Koreans, led by Kim Jong-un, have not allowed themselves to go down the same path.

Report: Global Military Expenditure at 3-Decade High, Biggest Spender US Sees First Increase Since 2010
The world has spent $1.8 trillion on its military in 2018, and the US is leading the charge, while some of its NATO allies are also buffing their war budgets citing the Russian threat despite Moscow decreasing its military spending.

The tensions between countries in Asia as well as between China and the USA are major drivers for the continuing growth of military spending in the region,” Pieter Wezeman, a senior researcher at the SIPRI Arms and Military Expenditure (AMEX) program, stated.

While Washington has been an undisputed leader of the chart for years, last year it upped its game even more, increasing its military spending for the first time since 2010. The surge in US defense spending is a direct reflection of the Trump administration's policy, according to SIPRI.
