    Sent to me via one of my chat group regarding what Biden presidency will mean for the rest of the world. Write up from an ex Asian diplomat to the US apparently.

    Basically, it sounds like he will have little time to worry about the world as his ass will be on fire from day one.

    I'd like to know what book hw wrote, that he references, if you can help. It might be interesting to read.
    (The second opportunity is geopolitical. Biden cannot reverse the US-China geopolitical contest, for reasons I have documented in my book),

    No greater truth ever spoken by one of the Fornicator’s brown nosers - Mnuchin.

    ‘We are working on a mass distribution of the virus!’

    Certainly worked - 12m Americans infected so far & record numbers every consecutive day.

    What awaits the greatest LOSER post Jan 20.

    Years in court and let’s hope years in jail for the con artist.

    “Former federal prosecutor Jessica Roth, who teaches at Cardozo School of Law in Manhattan, said this jumble of personal and business-related cases may amount to years-long legal dramas for Trump.”

    "The sheer number of them makes the task of dealing with them really daunting," Roth said. "And none of those actors are bound by the decisions made by the other one."

    You would not have any credible evidence for this smear, would you?

    Which leaves us with the question - did you make this up yourself or are you just parroting the liar in chief?

    Birds of a feather stick together.

    Guess he likes the modus operandi of the Fornicating LOSER - spreading unsubstantiated smears, false rumours & wild conspiracies.

    It an opinion piece and I would certainly say US-China geopolitical contest is far from over and to suggest one side has won, interesting to take that position. Both sides have altered their position and it an't going back to where it was. Don't think for a moment China's progressive change in position is making the US not have opportunities, national self interest many want to see a relatively strong US to counteract China's own ambitions.

    Opinion pieces indeed but it's hard not to draw the confusion that through the Fornicator's team of morons (Paul Krugman's opinion), US has lost the trade war :

    https://asiatimes.com/2020/10/trump-...g-us-hegemony/

    "The trade and tech war put an end to American domination. It would probably have ended eventually anyway, but could have lasted another 10 or even 20 years if the trade and tech war had not been waged. But now it seems US hegemony will come to an end in the very near future.

    The US used to make the trade and technology rules for the world, and China abided by them. But from now on, the exact opposite will happen. Now it is China that will make the rules, and the US will have to accept them.

    If Joe Biden wins the November 3 presidential election, the US will have to relinquish global domination and exceptionalism to end its trade and tech war. Team Biden will face colossal challenges in its trade and technology negotiations with China.

    So as it turned out, the Trump team is indeed the herd of the morons and dumbest policymakers that Krugman described. He was right, and I was wrong."

    https://www.registerguard.com/opinio...-his-trade-war

    "Trade wars rarely have victors. They do, however, sometimes have losers. And Donald Trump has definitely turned out to be a loser.

    Of course, that’s not the way he and his team are portraying the tentative deal they’ve struck with China, which they’re claiming as a triumph. The reality is that the Trump administration achieved almost none of its goals; it has basically declared victory while going into headlong retreat.

    And the Chinese know it. As The Times reports, Chinese officials are “jubilant and even incredulous” at the success of their hard-line negotiating strategy."

    And the world is a lesser place due to the US losing the tech & trade wars to China.

    Sidney Powell has been dumped from the Trump legal "Elite Force". How crazy would you have to be to be too crazy for Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani? Chris Christi calls Trump's legal team a "national embarrassment". Hello, is there anything associated with these charlatans that is not a national embarrassment. The Republicans are turning on each other now, getting harder to sit on the fence. Individually they have to choose between coming out of this with some shred of integrity or supporting Donny. The price of integrity is losing support from Trump's "base". Tough decision for "conservative" politicians who's instinct is political survival. Which way does political survival lie? Donny has to go and the non-crazy members of the party (there are still some) are not going to go down with him. This will split the Republican party I think.

    Yes, that is how Trump plays "three dimensional chess": make a lot of noise, throw a load of insults, talk big... then because there is no strategy, no forethought, no intelligence, no guts, nothing of substance, just an empty vessel, a "Reality TV President", once the photo op has passed, once the TV news cycle has moved on, just move on to the next thing and leave everyone else to pick up the tab.

    Like with Iran & North Korea.

    Both countries are now more advanced in their nuclear weaponry & so more dangerous but the fornicator is now nowhere to be seen.

    He tried to initiate a military strike against Iran last week which would have set the Saudi Arabian & other ME oil fields on fire. Great strategist, not!

    Great Fornicator though.

    More opinion pieces, clearly you like the ideas presented. Paul was having a go at Trump and fair enough, its still in a vacuum ignoring wider issues and time has already moved on, many other countries are a vital part in all of this, it not as simple as a trade war between just the two countries. Alliances with a different oriented US against a new assertive China how now formed. The trade war may way have been ineffective yet that in itself is not game over.
