The US and China on the Doorstep of War — Trump Challenges Beijing — Who Will Blink First?

Spratlys_Islands_Map_boundaries

  • The US and China on the Doorstep of War — Trump Challenges Beijing — Who Will Blink First?
    by Dave Hodges, http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/
    President Trump and Defense Secretary Mettes(Mattis) are not backing down to the Chinese. As I write these words Carrier Task Force 1, has sailed into the South China Sea as America calls the bluff of China to stay out of the region.

    South China Sea Tensions Resurface
    After months of relative calm, the events in the South China Sea are, again, heating up and are threatening to bring chaos and war to the South China Sea and perhaps the planet.

    The major players in the territorial dispute are China, Vietnam and the United States. At issue are the Spratly Islands in which China has constructed artificial Islands and militarized them as they lay claim to the area. This is a dispute that has both the US and Vietnam up in arms.

    Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said that tensions in the waters have stabilized, due to the hard work of Beijing and Southeast Asia countries. However, he warns, the US should cease patrolling the South China Sea as it belongs to China. He further elaborated that the US will respect the current situation by not taking “any actions that challenge China’s sovereignty and security,” according to Reuters. And now we have the fertile ground of a stand0ff and the potential for World War III.

    A Review of the Surface Nature of the Dispute
    The following map encapsulates the territorial disputes between several nations. China has claimed the South China Sea as its own which is in direct violation of international law.

Carrier Strike Group USS Carl Vinson Begins Routine Patrol In South China Sea

  • Published on Feb 19, 2017
    Breaking News – Carrier Strike Group USS Carl Vinson Begins Patrol In South China Sea Update

    SOUTH CHINA SEA (NNS) — Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 1, including Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70), Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 1’s Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Wayne E. Meyer (DDG 108), and aircraft from Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 2, began routine operations in the South China Sea, Feb. 18.

    Prior to their operations in the South China Sea, ships and aircraft from within the strike group conducted training off the islands of Hawaii and Guam to maintain and improve their readiness and develop cohesion as a strike group. The strike group recently enjoyed a port visit to Guam and after departing the Marianas, conducted operations in the Philippine Sea.

    “The training completed over the past few weeks has really brought the team together and improved our effectiveness and readiness as a strike group,” said Rear Adm. James Kilby, commander, CSG 1. “We are looking forward to demonstrating those capabilities while building upon existing strong relationships with our allies, partners and friends in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.”

    Vinson last deployed to the Western-Pacific in 2015 and conducted a bilateral exercise with the Royal Malaysian Navy and Royal Malaysian Air Force in the South China Sea. Vinson first operated in the South China Sea in 1983 and in total, has operated there during 16 previous deployments over its 35 year history.

    While deployed, the Carl Vinson CSG will remain under U.S. 3rd Fleet command and control, including beyond the international dateline, which previously divided operational areas of responsibility for 3rd and 7th Fleets. Third Fleet operating forward offers additional options to the Pacific Fleet commander by leveraging the capabilities of 3rd and 7th Fleets. This operational concept allows both numbered fleets to complement one another and provide the foundation of stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.

    CVW-2 includes the “Black Knights” of Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 4, the “Blue Hawks” of Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron (HSM) 78, the “Bounty Hunters” of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 2, the “Blue Blasters” of VFA-34, the “Kestrels” of VFA-137, the “Golden Dragons” of VFA-192, the “Black Eagles” of Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron (VAW) 113, the “Gauntlets” of Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 136 and the “Providers” of Fleet Logistic Support Squadron (VRC) 30.

    A fleet of supporting warships is accompanying the U-S-S Carl Vinson aircraft carrier. This comes days after China’s Foreign Ministry warned Washington against challenging its sovereignty in the region. Shortly after taking office in January, U-S President Donald Trump vowed to prevent China from taking over territory in international waters in the South China Sea. Beijing claims most of the South China Sea. Other claimants are Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan.

Charles Nenner 2017 Prediction: Global War Cycle Coming into Danger Zone

  • Charles Nenner 2017 Prediction: Global War Cycle Coming into Danger Zone
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)
    Renowned financial and geopolitical analyst Charles Nenner correctly predicted there would be no market crash in 2016. 2017 is going to be a very different story.  Nenner explains, “There are going to be some serious corrections and some bounces.  I don’t thing we are going anywhere until the fall of 2017 when the whole bottom is going to fall out.  If you are a very good stock picker, you’ll be okay, but I am talking about the indices (overall financial markets).  It continues to be dangerous, and most of the good news is already in this rally.  The hope that Trump will do the right thing is still there, but it will take too long.  People will realize it is not going to happen tomorrow, and they will get disappointed.  So, I am still not very much into the stock market.  I don’t think there is much to gain over there.  I have been saying that for the next couple of years, try not to lose your money.  That’s the major thing you should be doing.”


    On the election of Donald Trump, Nenner says, “More than half of Americans supported Trump, but everybody is afraid to say so. I always thought Trump would change the whole thing.   I think things will also change in the Middle East.  I do think he much better understands Putin than Obama and the Democrats.  I think he will be tough, and his toughness may lead to a better situation with world peace, although the cycles are against him.  I actually feel sorry for him because if this market crashes, then maybe he can say, like Obama, it was Bush who did it.  He might be able to say it’s only been one year as President, and it’s Obama’s fault.  Maybe that’s how he can get out of it.  I think it was Obama that said for eight years it was Bush’s fault.”

    On his big prediction of a coming war cycle, Nenner says, “I have always said I feel sorry for whoever is going to President now because we have negative cycles, and things usually don’t work out very well. I think the United States will be much better off with a different wind blowing in Congress and in the White House.”

    The most disturbing thing Nenner sees coming is a major world war on the scale of WWI and WWII. Nenner explains, “In my research of financial markets, we also did research on war cycles.  It’s about to flare up everywhere.  If the stock market is close to a top, some stocks are just tanking and others still hold up.  What you see here right now is some countries are just tanking, and the rest are still holding up, meaning we are forming a top.  This means the cycle is coming into the danger zone.  I still see a big problem with China and Japan.  We also have problems with Chinese islands (in the South China Sea).  If this continues, it’s going to come from there.  If you go back a hundred years ago, a big war started (WWI).  A hundred years before that it was Napoleon.  Big wars always start in the second decade of a new era. . . . I still see there are problems with war everywhere . . . . Everything is on the edge, and it can ignite at any minute.  If terrorists could, they would use much larger weapons, and if they do, everybody is going to have to wake up.  Then you will have a major war on your hands.”

    In closing, Nenner says, “I think it is a good idea to own some physical gold and silver.”

Ushering In a Totalitarian Police State in Cashless “Smart Cities”

world_war_on_cash

  • Ushering In a Totalitarian Police State in Cashless “Smart Cities”
    by From Scandinavia to Amsterdam to India and elsewhere, the trend of going “cashless” is gaining traction.

    We have been covering the shortcomings of what is rightly called the War On Cash here at TDV for a while now and have shown just how negative the effects can be on an unsuspecting nation’s people.

    Chandigarh, India, which is the capital of the northern Indian states of Punjab and Haryana, is like one of India’s labrats. Indian officials are working hard toward making it into India’s first cashless city. This initiative is part of the Prime Minister of India’s call for state governments to begin developing what he’s calling “smart” cities. That means cities attached to the latest internet technology. However there is nothing intelligent about his plan.

    One of the major changes being made to work toward that objective was the insistence of having all bills paid electronically at government offices within the city.

    Similarly, in Panjim, the capital of Goa, India, the local government is attempting to incentivize the locals into paying digitally by offering them discounts on train tickets and other public transportation services if they pay electronically.

    This is an extension of the ongoing cash battle which has been going on in India since November when Modi announced he was going to replace the 500 and 1000 rupee banknotes. However the government has not started replacements, only ensured the removal.

    What followed the eradication of India’s largest denomination notes was a constricted Indian economy, particularly among the middle and lower classes who rely predominantly on cash transactions to conduct daily business.

Chinese Media: Tillerson Could Spark War

  • Can Tillerson be trusted? Personally, I do not trust top people in the banking cartel, Big Oil, Big Pharma, Big Agri, MIC, Pentagram …. My understanding is that to rise up the rungs in these Illuminist organizations, you need to be Freemasonic Illuminists ie Satanists. Of course, we should not assume that every general, every CEO … is a Satanist but the majority are. The key positions in control/power are always populated by them. Non critical positions like man-power, logistics, maintenance … are less likely so.
  • Published on Jan 13, 2017
    Chinese media have strongly condemned Prospective US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s comment about the South China Sea dispute. China Daily which reflects the views of the Chinese government said Tillerson had better quote-watch his mouth. The paper warned if Donald Trump’s nominee made good on his threats to block Beijing in the South China Sea, there would be a devastating confrontation between the two sides. The US has sided with China’s regional rivals in maritime disputes. But Beijing has repeatedly warned Washington against taking sides and meddling in the regional issue.

“Friends, Long Live” Duterte Tells Russian Navy, Hopes Moscow Will Become Philippines’ “Ally And Protector”

  • “Friends, Long Live” Duterte Tells Russian Navy, Hopes Moscow Will Become Philippines’ “Ally And Protector”
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com
    On Tuesday, in a surprising move confirming the ongoing pivot by the Philippines away from the US sphere of geopolitical influence, and toward the China-Russia axis, the Russian destroyer Admiral Tributs and sea tanker Boris Butomato unexpectedly arrived in the Philippines to conduct military training exercises in what the Russian media described as “an unprecedented navy-to-navy contact between the two nations.”

    The warships arrived in the region on Tuesday as Russian Navy Rear Admiral Eduard Mikhailov proclaimed a joint mission between Manila and Moscow to target the region’s two most pressing security concerns, maritime piracy and terrorism. The Rear Admiral said that “we’re very sure in the future” Russia and the Philippines will “get such exercises, maybe just the maneuvering.” Alternatively, “maybe just use some combat systems and so on,” he noted, so as not to tip Russia’s hand concerning its regional naval strategy.

    A spokesman for the Philippine Navy told reporters this is the first official interaction with the Russian navy, an arch rival of its former colonial master and closest ally in the region, the United States. Mikhailov said they were willing to help train Philippine counterparts to fight piracy and terrorism and they hope to foster stronger security in the region.

China Seizes Unmanned, Underwater US Navy Vehicle Off South China Sea

  • China Seizes Unmanned, Underwater US Navy Vehicle Off South China Sea 
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com 
    Update: according to US officials cited by Reuters, the unmanned vehicles was seized unlawfully by China.  A Reuters official also adds that “the UUV was lawfully conducting a military survey in the waters of the South China Sea,” the official said. “It’s a sovereign immune vessel, clearly marked in English not to be removed from the water – that it was U.S. property.”

    The incident, the first of its kind in recent memory, took place on Dec. 15 northwest of Subic Bay off the Philippines just as the USNS Bowditch, an oceanographic survey ship, was about to retrieve the unmanned, underwater vehicle (UUV), the official told Reuters.

    The Pentagon later confirmed the incident at a news briefing. It said the drone used commercially available technology and sold for about $150,000.
