OBOR for the Americas

With the 100% probability that OBOR will raise living standards across Eurasia, 10 suggestions:

  1. Build an “OBOR-Americas. Look at OBOR as a model for similar infrastructure from Alaska & Canada to Tierra del Fuego, enriching everyone along the way: road and rail links, seaports. Add airports where it makes sense. Add an electrical grid and Venezuela can start selling their oil again to benefit the region by burning it into electricity, increasing manufactures. Then they’ll all need cars to get to work so will buy gas. Will Venezuela play? They can get on-board or OBOR-A will avoid

Peak Disruption

The post-war Old Order crashes around us. The Information Age reaches the maturation necessary to displace the Industrial Age.

Peak disruption may be at hand in the transition, but peak influence never will arrive. The influence of information will – can – never cease expanding, for such is the nature of information.

The post-post-war order rises. The disruptions accelerate and enlarge as one Age gives way to the next. Fukuyama was wrong.

The media that provided the compass and the landscape for millennia is the troll under the bridge wooing us from reality and telling us of a path […]

What If America Is Not The Target?

Is North Korea aiming to attack America? Or is this misdirection? Looking at America or American colonies (Guam) as Rocket Man’s target may be entirely wrong.

Putting aside the mistake Japan made at Pearl Harbor – a small attack they thought was the mere shooing-away of an almost militarily insignificant non-combatant trying to interfere in their years-long creation of the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere (that resulted in the annihilation of two of their cities, the loss of millions of Japanese lives and the destruction of their country as an effective polity) – centuries have passed since the last attack […]

Removing Islam

This is an interesting column on the steps required to stop anti-Western jihad; IMO, however, it has two major failures.

1. Associating the word “religion” with islam is incorrect. “Religion” is a Western word. Western readers/users foundationally – unconsciously – associate with it the idea of separation between church & state. This concept is antithetical to islam, period. Islam
does not in any way, shape or form meet any test of the word “religion.” The association of the two creates a semi- or un-conscious mindset in the reader that is the opposite of islam. Islam is a death-cult based on

The Left Would Love a Nork Nuke on US

To those asking some version of “Does the Left WANT us attacked?” the answer often is “Yes.”

The Left hates America. They tell us this every day in every way. Why would they not want us attacked? They’re attacking us with immigrants and multiculturalism now – a nuke is faster in achieving their aim.

Contrary to what (too) many seem to think, a nuclear attack on an American city furthers Progressive goals.

Are Schumer and Pelosi publicly standing with Trump, saying, “We Americans have our policy differences, but those stop at the water’s edge; do not attack us”? No. They […]
