The Sirius Report with London Paul 06-21-2018

London Paul joins RogueMoneyRadio from the Netherlands where he is on summer holiday to discuss the absurdities of the U.S.-China trade war. Paul discusses how Chinese foreign direct investment (FDI) into the USA plummeted starting in the last quarter of 2017 through the first half of 2018. Paul also mentions the strong likelihood of Chinese citizen boycotts at the behest of their government directed against American brands like Apple or Starbucks.

Turning to the Middle East, Paul talks about why the U.S. will eventually have no choice but to pull out of Syria, where ‘deescalation zones’ with aggressively enforced American perimeters around bases like al-Tanf have been used to harbor Daesh terrorists. Paul makes it clear Damascus and the Russians have had enough of these games being played by the neocons, and are moving forward to clear out jihadists up to the Golan Heights line of control facing Israel. — JWS

Drone Industry to Pump £42 Billion into UK Economy by 2030, Reports PwC

The rising adoption of drone technology may potentially add £42bn to the UK’s annual GDP, according to a report by the PwC. The increase in drone adoption is being fuelled by corporations that want to automate their current operations.

The report estimates that 76,000 drones will be operational in the UK by 2030. More than 1/3 of the drones could be utilised by the public sector, which includes areas like defence, education, and health. Public and defence industries are predicted to use approximately 30,000 drones for their operations, while mining and agriculture are estimated to use 26,000 and 11,000 respectively.

Another EEU nation preparing to dump dollars and other fiat currencies for gold

Another EEU nation preparing to dump dollars and other fiat currencies for gold

In just the past month, three EEU nations have embarked upon a process of dumping dollars, with two of them also increasing their gold holdings in preparation for a post-dollar world.

Earlier in June we discovered that last month's climb of the 10 year Treasury yield to over 3% was primarily due to Russia selling $49 billion of their dollar reserves.  Then just a few weeks later Belarus announced they were signing up with Russia to begin bi-lateral trade done outside the reserve currency.

Now on June 20th a 3rd Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) member has jumped into the mix by announcing their were dumping both their dollar and yuan reserves to instead purchase physical gold as their primary monetary protection.

This Is the Moment for Change

This Is the Moment for Change

Two events of the day point the way for how the New Silk Road paradigm is the means to overcome what is currently being whipped up in the Trans-Atlantic as inevitable, insoluble strife: the migrant crisis and trade war.

In the Americas, Bolivian President Evo Morales met in Beijing today with President Xi Jinping, and signed commitments for Belt and Road collaboration between Bolivia and China. Morales said it will mean economic development and peace throughout the continent. Also in China, is a delegation from the Dominican Republic, conferring on economic projects and business in the Caribbean. Generalized across Ibero-America, this activity--along with defeating the narco-criminals--can end the poverty and danger driving millions to flee their homelands. At present, 200 million out of the 650 million-plus people in Ibero-America and the Caribbean live in poverty, which can all be changed.

Secondly, the Japanese government is now working on specifics for first-ever cooperation with China on joint ventures in third countries, under the Belt and Road framework. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe this week spoke of how Japan's "infrastructure exports" can be done on a collaborative basis. A task force is at work on selecting priority projects. This is a powerhouse arrangement.

Major Changes Can Keep Coming, Trump And Xi Can Solve Both Trade and Immigration

Major Changes Can Keep Coming, Trump And Xi Can Solve Both Trade and Immigration

The summit just accomplished in Singapore has already changed the relations of nations in Asia for the better, showed President Donald Trump's unusual leadership capacity, and should be changing the way Europeans and Americans look at what is possible. The very real potential is now emerging for an early summit of Presidents Trump and Putin, absolutely critical to ending 15 years' continuous disasters of war in Southwest Asia and North Africa. And there can be more "game-changers" — no crisis situation is fixed at this moment, if citizens and leaders will move optimistically for peace and mutual economic development.

Above all, this is a time when many should be joining with the Schiller Institute and LaRouche Political Action Committee, who for decades since the Berlin Wall fell, have held the torch for a "new paradigm" of economic and scientific progress and peace. What is happening in Asia through the New Silk Road and the Korea summits, can "break out" in Europe and the United States if there are any forceful leaders for cooperation of major nations' cooperation — as President Trump has shown he is.

Helga Zepp-LaRouche's call for an EU summit next week which actually solves the migrant crisis there — by European nations joining China in the economic development of Africa — is now circulating internationally in many languages; now the same solution has been proposed in China's Global Times newspaper. Her call should go out far and wide, to trigger action, and action now.

May the Space Force Be With You

May the Space Force Be With You

Judging by the general tone of his twitter feed, @VicSepulveda probably didn’t intend for this meme graphic of Darth Trump to be such a compliment. Nevertheless, mark this day on your calendar: June 18, 2018. Today, the President of the United States officially directed the creation of the sixth branch of the American military. The ‘Space Force’ is now about to join the Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard and Marine Corps. If only you knew the power of the dark side….

Texas Gold Depository could be a central bank alternative if enough people choose to accept gold as money

Texas Gold Depository could be a central bank alternative if enough people choose to accept gold as money

After years of legislative and infrastructural legwork, the state of Texas officially opened their Gold Depository last week.  And with gold and silver both being recognized by the state as money and legal tender, the potential for Texans to wean themselves off the central bank debt based system is extremely high.

Houthis Claim to Have Captured French Special Forces Joining in Saudi/UAE Attack on Yemen's Red Sea Port of Hudaydah

Houthis Claim to Have Captured French Special Forces Joining in Saudi/UAE Attack on Yemen's Red Sea Port of Hudaydah

Al-Hudaydah also known in English as Hodeda, Hodeida, Hudaida or Hodeidah, is a port on the Red Sea and starving Yemen’s humanitarian lifeline to the world. It is also alleged to be a major conduit for Iranian missiles and ammunition to reach the Ansarallah or Houthis, the Zaidi Shi’a resistance that rules the capitol of Sana'a. The Ansarallah are fierce qat-chewing desert warriors, whose conservative Zaidi or ‘fiver’ branch of Shi’a Islam differs considerably from that of their Lebanese Hezbollah allies or the ‘twelver’ Shi’a practiced by their supposed puppetmasters in Iran. Nonetheless they have adapted the Iranian clerical regime’s revolutionary slogans of ‘Allah is great, death to America, death to Israel, victory for Islam’ adding to their slogan ‘a curse upon the Jews’.

For three years, the Houthis have waged an effective guerrilla war, inflicting thousands of casualties on Saudi Arabia’s lavishly funded and incompetent military since the Kingdom invaded its impoverished neighbor in 2015. If you believe that the petrodollar is the key to America’s ability to finance its massive deficits, then the Houthis are to the Anglo-American empire what the Afghan mujaheddin were to the late Soviet Empire — harbingers of its defeat and collapse.
