A Tale of Four Summits…and America’s Age of Anxiety and Bewilderment

June 2018.

It was the best of times…it was the worst of times…

It was the time Xi Jinping orchestrated a grand spectacle of Eurasian power at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit in Qingdao, China…

…as the Western powers presided over an omnishambles of acrimony and dysfunction at the G7 Summit in Ottawa, Canada.

And it was a time when China’s state propaganda and media apparatus successfully trolled the United States…

….contrasting scenes of Trump confronted by America’s most loyal allies

…with images of Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin yucking it up in Qingdao as they plotted the creation of a post-American order on the Eurasian continent

And it was a time of two more summits…

…the summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un that the American establishment never wanted

…and the summit between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin that the American establishment hopes will never take place.

The scariest thing: maybe Trump senses what’s going on…and the experts don’t.

Something is happening here, and you don’t know what it is…if you’re an American strategist besotted with dreams of sustaining US hegemony in Asia.

Hollywood and the downwinders still grapple with nuclear fallout

At the Olympics, South Korea Says “Enough” to a Century of Japanese and U.S. Betrayal

My Asia Brief audio report on the history Americans don’t know… but drives current events on the Korean peninsula.  Resentment at the sacrifice of Korea to U.S. Cold War ambitions and the Japanese alliance runs deep…and Koreans in the North and South are finally able to do something about it.

General MacArthur’s Conspiracy to Start a War with China! New Documentary Release & Interview! For purchase at Newsbud Store or for Purchase or View via Amazon or Vimeo

The Korean War was a desperate and dubious battle in which the US was ready to try anything and everything to overcome its strategic and tactical disadvantages.  Biological weapons, nuclear weapons…and Douglas MacArthur’s plans for a strategic breakout via escalation of the Korean conflict to a regional war.  Everything was on the table.

Douglas MacArthur made the first US attempt to parlay a Korean crisis into an existential confrontation with the People’s Republic of China.  With the US milsec establishment, his ideas are more popular—and dangerous—than ever.  My documentary uses first hand testimony and declassified archives to finally reveal the truth behind this long-suppressed event.

Fukushima’s Nuclear Shadow: Fallout Over the USS Reagan

For viewers of this episode’s segment on John Wayne and the Downwinders who wish to dig deeper into the issue of cancer and atomic fallout, in 2014 I used an undercovered crisis—the extensive contamination of the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan by radioactive fallout from the Fukushima nuclear power plant during post-earthquake and tsunami relief operations off the coast of Japan in 2011—to do a deep dive for CounterPunch Magazine on the US government’s systemic suppression and distortion of public health science concerning the dangers of nuclear radiation.  It’s a sobering story of decades of government finagling of numerous radiation incidents including the biggest fallout event you never heard of: a massive washout of radioactive material onto Albany, New York.  And it covers the controversies—and crimes—like no other article in the popular press.  Available for purchase at the link.

    In the up coming nuclear war, I believe Russia will be double-crossed China, and the United States will be double-crossed by Israel.
