Bombs VS Bridges – The USA competing with China – By Brandon Turbeville

 – How Two Empires Are Competing For Their Version Of The New World Order

 — Bombs VS Bridges – By Brandon Turbeville

There is a crisis in the Western world. Both in terms of domestic affairs and foreign policy, Western nations are showing all signs of impending collapse. This is despite the fact that the flagship of the Western world, the United States, continues to expand its empire across the globe. At the same time, the world is witnessing the “rise of China,” an empire in its own right though no one seems to have any interest in calling it what it is.

The American empire has come to terms with itself to some extent. Through all the claims of support for “democracy” and “freedom,” the United States has transitioned to an authoritarian state at home and a rampaging military of conquest abroad.        Continue reading

President Nicolás Maduro says ‘thank God’ for dollarization in Venezuela

Nicolás Maduro

By

CARACAS,  (Reuters) – Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro embraced the currency of his bitter rival the United States yesterday, calling it an “escape valve” that can help the country weather its economic crisis amid U.S. sanctions aimed at forcing him from power.

The official currency, the bolivar, has depreciated more than 90% this year, while hyperinflation in the first nine months of the year clocked in at 4,680%, according to the central bank.

The inflationary spiral has slashed the purchasing power of the South American country’s minimum wage, which together with food assistance, is equivalent to about $10 per month.    Continue reading

Guyana SPEAKS: Travel and Tourism In Guyana – London UK- Sunday November 24. 2019

Dear Friends,

Many of you will have seen the Guardian newspaper article by Kevin Rusby: We want to keep our Forest: Why Guyana’s Wilderness Needs Visitors and his wonderful descriptions of trees festooned with ferns, creepers and orchids; of a jungle full of treasures and jewel-like birds in splendid emerald and sapphire livery.  It’s impossible to read it without feeling nostalgic for Guyana.            Continue reading

Award of Kaieteur, Canje Oil Blocks… Former Natural Resources Minister Robert Persaud explains

Award of Kaieteur, Canje Oil Blocks…I only operated as a bridge between GGMC and Ramotar –  says Former Natural Resources Minister Robert Persaud 

Robert Persaud

By Kiana Wilburg  – Nov 18, 2019  News    

When it comes to the award of oil blocks pre- oil discovery, former Natural Resources Minister, Robert Persaud contends that he never had a central role to play.

In fact, Persaud described himself to this news agency as being a mere bridge between former President, Donald Ramotar (who was also the Minister of Energy) and the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC).

During a guest appearance on Kaieteur Radio’s Programme, Guyana’s Oil and You, Persaud made this comment as he explained the thinking behind the award of two oil blocks, Kaieteur and Canje, just months before the 2015 elections were held.          Continue reading

The USA’s War on Chinese Advanced Technology – By Prof. Jeffrey D. Sachs

November 12, 2019- By – By Prof. Jeffrey D. Sachs

NEW YORK – The worst foreign-policy decision by the United States of the last generation – and perhaps longer – was the “war of choice” that it launched in Iraq in 2003 for the stated purpose of eliminating weapons of mass destruction that did not, in fact, exist. Understanding the illogic behind that disastrous decision has never been more relevant, because it is being used to justify a similarly misguided US policy today.

The decision to invade Iraq followed the illogic of then-US Vice President Richard Cheney, who declared that even if the risk of WMDs falling into terrorist hands was tiny – say, 1% – we should act as if that scenario would certainly occur.      Continue reading

God Save the Queen: The US Destruction of the British Empire – L arry Romanoff | Global Research

Larry Romanoff | Global Research

This is about a little-known and never-discussed part of US history, but yet one of the major factors that propelled the US to its overwhelming manufacturing and economic supremacy after the Second World War. It involves the final destruction of the British Empire, for which no thinking person would have regrets.

The First World War caused Britain to lose about 40% of its former Empire and wealth, and the Second World War completed this task, but not without the little-known predatory intercession of the United States of America.

During the Second War, Britain needed huge volumes of supplies of food, raw materials, manufactured goods, armaments and military hardware. But Britain’s factories were being destroyed by the war, and in any case lacked sufficient productive capacity. Britain also increasingly lacked money to pay for those goods, its solution being to purchase on credit from its colonies.        Continue reading
