The Chinese regime sucks, but the Sinophobia that the US political class is ratcheting up is all a rhetorical smokescreen that has the effect of obscuring the real relationship between the US and China. By Doug Bandow The American Conservative In hopes of winning reelection, President Donald Trump […]
Saagar Enjeti discusses reports that some Chinese companies are using slave labor to manufacture face masks which are then being sent to the U.S.
What do American neo-Maoism and Chinese National Socialism have in common? By Joyu Wang and Lucy Craymer Wall Street Journal HONG KONG—Teachers who backed antigovernment protests in the city—by taking to the streets or supporting the demonstrators on social media—are being reprimanded and, in some cases, fired as […]
The provinces are rebelling.
China Begins Brutal Crackdown Under New Law In Hong Kong, Starts Arresting Those Calling For Freedom
China is the global ruling class’ test market in a sophisticated, high-tech state repression. Recall how much praise China received from international opinion leaders for its heavy-handed response to COVID-19 (all the while disseminating fraudulent medical statistics).
Peter Zeihan has argued that China may eventually fracture due to its internal instability and fragmentation. If that were to happen, I would consider it to be a major victory for “pan-secessionism” as a revolutionary tactic, as was the overthrow of the USSR and its Eastern European satellites. […]
The Chinese have their problems but they’re being used by the US regime to deflect Americans’ attention from the fact that they’re being ruled by incompetent morons. William Jones is the Washington Bureau Chief for the Executive Intelligence Review (EIR). He is also a Non-Resident Fellow of the […]
China is monitoring employees’ brain waves and emotions — and the technology boosted one company’s profits by $315 million
Keep in mind that China is a permanent member of the US-created UN Security Council, the World Trade Organization (which manages the global capitalist empire), and the G-20, which the Asian Development Bank has characterized as the steering committee of global capitalism. In other words, China is just […]
A Marxist-Leninist commie-worshiper makes his case for Xi Jinping’s neo-Maoism. To Western leftists who want to live under state-communism, I always say join the military where you are guaranteed a job and all your basic needs (food, shelter, clothes, healthcare) are provided. Or if the military is not […]
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley Remember when the Russians were coming? It seems like just last week Vladimir Putin was whistling the Soviet National Anthem just around every corner of main street. After the colossal clusterfuck of Hillary 2016, you couldn’t swing a […]
Krystal and Saagar discuss reports that China is threatening to sanction lawmakers who have been critical of the country’s handling of the coronavirus.
John Pilger’s new documentary. Russiahate didn’t get saluted when the Deep State/neoliberal wing of the ruling class/new clerisy alliance ran it up the flagpole. Now the right-wing of the ruling class is countering with Chinahate, and the neoliberal Bidenists are moving “out-Chinahate” the Trumpians. There’s not going to […]
Score one for the Chinese on this one. By Shashank Bengali and Alice Su Los Angeles Times BEIJING — The newscast blares from a television set in a Beijing apartment, carrying through an open window and echoing across the compound. The refrain is the same every evening: praise […]
Fear and Loathing in Coronaville Volume 7: What Rough Beast Slouches Towards Washington and Beijing?
Check out Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, and Part 6. By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley As the smoke slowly settles on the bucolic hills of my farmland community and many others, the Coronavirus nightmare may be far from […]
One reason I can’t really go for all the Chinahate we see today is that China is merely a test market for the kind of system the overlords of the empire want for the entire world, i.e. serf labor, techno-fascist surveillance, and labor camps for those who dissent. […]
A couple of Jacobin Magazine-style “democratic socialists” engage in a torturous discussion of what the “progressive” rather than “reactionary” view of China should be, and why China is generally bad as opposed to Cuba, which is supposedly generally good. China should be viewed as a backwater province in […]
I generally don’t agree with Tucker Carlson’s Sinophobia. Yes, China is probably as close to being an actual “fascist” regime of any country in the world today in the sense of being a one-party state, with a cult of personality built around the leader, a state-directed system of […]
Is the right-wing of the ruling class using the current situation to pick a fight with China? China has very limited naval power and poses no conventional military threat to the US. By Hannah Beech New York Times American warships have sailed into disputed waters in the South […]
Bannon spinning the Sinophobia line. It’s interesting how the right-wing of the ruling class is now using a backwater province in the global capitalist empire, whose primary function is to provide cheap labor and cheap loans to Western corporations and governments, as a whipping boy.
As I have said before, China and Russia merely represent the leading factions within the global capitalist-financier empire (see Antony Sutton from the right or Hardt and Negri from the left). Their role within the empire is that of rebellious provinces in relation to the dominant American-Atlanticist-Zionist-Wahhabi axis […]
A second wave, just like 1918.
I don’t really care for the Sinophobia that is constantly coming from the right end of the spectrum, just as I don’t care for the left’s Russophobia. But these places are still just the Eastern wing of global mafia capitalism, so fuck ’em. By putting out questionable guidance […]
Historically, whenever societies have experienced either an economic downturn or an epidemic of a disease, people have started looking for scapegoats to blame for the problem. In ancient societies, a literal human sacrifice might result. Right now, the US is experiencing both an economic downturn and an epidemic. […]
The Hoover Institution, a think-tank that promotes the interests of the right-wing of the ruling class, takes a shot at China (the leading economic power in the Eastern division of global capitalism). The right-wing of the ruling class hates China as a threat to their economic interests and […]
By William S. Lind Traditional Right A spectre is haunting the world, the spectre of a world-wide debt crisis. Could the coronavirus epidemic in China be the trigger? World debt levels, both public and private, have reached undreamed heights. The United States is now running deficits of a […]
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The joint naval drills of Iran, Russia and China in the Indian Ocean and the Gulf of Oman were aimed at countering US influence in the region, an American political analyst said. “The three countries appear to have as their primary objectives the protection of […]
Watch here. Iran, Russia and China have begun a four-day joint maritime exercise in the Indian Ocean and the Sea of Oman area. The “Marine Security Belt,” as the event is codenamed, will last until Monday. On Wednesday, Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi, the spokesman for Iranian Armed Forces, […]
PressTV. Listen here. The United States is magnifying and overstating the growing threat posed from China and Russia to justify maintaining the country’s armed interventions and its military–industrial complex, an American analyst in Virginia says. “We have to understand that the United States regards Russia and China as […]
My thoughts on the “trade war” with China. Watch here. This week US president Donald Trump declared a national emergency over IT threats. Trumps long awaited executive order forbids U.S. companies from purchasing telecommunications equipment manufactured by firms posing a “national security risk”.
Press TV. Listen here. The passage of two US warships through the Taiwan Strait on Thursday is part of Washington’s efforts to compete with China and preserve its domination in the Asia-Pacific region, says an American political analyst in Virginia.
Needless to say, I think Caleb is overly enthusiastic about China (interestingly, I know Libertarians who are Sinophiles as well). But his takedown of the Western Left is refreshing. Caleb is also being overly optimistic about the interest of young people in “socialism.” Yes, there is a growing […]
I bash John Bolton on Iranian television.
Asia Times China’s ambassador to Damascus has reportedly told Syrian media that Beijing is prepared to aid the government’s push to retake territory throughout the country. Speaking to Syrian pro-government daily Al-Watan, the envoy, Qi Qianjin, expressed China’s support for what he referred to as Syria’s war against […]
By Panos Mourdoukoutas Forbes The reason China is in Africa is simple; to exploit the people and take their resources. It’s the same thing European colonists did during mercantile times, except worse. The corporations owned by the Chinese state are trying to turn Africa into another Chinese continent. […]
PressTV. Listen here. The Islamic Republic of Iran stands in the way of the United States totally dominating the Middle East, according to American political analyst Keith Preston. Preston, chief editor of AttacktheSystem.com, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Saturday while commenting on a Bloomberg […]
Press TV. Listen here. US President Donald Trump’s aggressive trade policy with China and Europe is a “double-edged sword,” bolstering domestic manufacturing and narrowing the trade deficit while hitting the American consumer with rising prices, says an analyst. “Tariffs on imports have multiple economic effects and depending on […]
The withering away of the antiwar movement during the Obama era, and the failure of the Left to oppose the Trump administration’s efforts to strengthen the position of the Atlanticist-Zionist-Wahhabi axis (or to even take notice) indicates that US imperialism will have to be defeated externally rather than […]
China once had a massive anarchist movement in the pre-Mao years. Anarcho-Dictator China has neoliberals and neocons all-a-tizzy about various dangers allegedly posed by a third world country on the other side of the planet. The border between China and the United States is Japan and the Pacific […]
The bosses of the Eastern wing of global gangster capitalism apparently decided to take out an unreliable capo. By Adrian Blomfield The Telegraph The general behind Zimbabwe’s coup may have sought Chinese approval days before the army launched its takeover of Robert Mugabe’s government, it emerged on Wednesday.

Press TV. Listen here. US President Donald Trump’s plans to reduce Washington’s foreign interventionism and focus on issues like immigration are part of a foreign policy plan that seeks to separate Russia from China and Iran, says an American analyst. Keith Preston, director of attackthesystem.org, made the remarks […]
The best analysis of the Trumpian approach to foreign policy I have seen to date. By Pete Escobar South China Morning Press China, Russia and Iran are the three key players in what promises to be the Eurasian Century. Donald Trump may be The Joker; The Fool; The […]
