Last Off Ramp for Korean Peace Ahead! Will the Deep State Let Trump Take It?

You want to worry about North Korea?  Go ahead!  But worry more about the emerging Indo-Japanese axis and the implications for anti-China adventurism in Afghanistan and Pakistan.  And we’ve got a sneak peak at my documentary on a US conspiracy to bring the PRC to heel via an Asian war…in 1951!

Is Trump Planning a Korean Peace Surprise? And Can the Deep State Stop Him?

North Korea’s got nukes.  And it’s got ICBMs.  Even so, US hawks have pushed the Korean peace process into a dead end.  But can they keep it there?  Not just Russia and China want negotiations.  Maybe Donald Trump wants to negotiate too!  Is the deep state going to push back?  What do you think?  It already has!  And why didn’t Seth Rogen melt off Kim Jong Un’s face?

Kim Jong Un’s Nuclear Target: China

North Korea has taken a lot of crap from China over the decades.  Now it looks ready to dish it back.  Let’s welcome the world’s ninth bona fide nuclear power: North Korea!  North Korea’s nuclear weapons aren’t just a deterrent; they’re leverage for North Korea to push away from China and push the United States toward acceptance of North Korea as a legitimate state.  That was just some of the bad news for China on its periphery as headaches pile up in the Himalayas, Myanmar, and Cambodia.

Welcome to the China War

The War Against China Kicked Off Last Week…Did Anybody Notice?  Well, China did.  So did North Korea, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan… As American media and public opinion continue their obsession with Trump, Trump’s generals have cleared the decks to confront China across Asia, and China hawks are cranking up the witch hunt against China doves.  More and more it looks like peace in Asia is unpatriotic and undesirable when it comes to America’s anti-China mission.

De-Manufacturing Consent- Sony Hack & the Rise of Digital False Flags

Guillermo Jimenez Presents Tom Secker

On this edition of De-Manufacturing Consent Guillermo is joined by Tom Secker, host of ClandesTime and author of the book Secrets, Spies, and 7/7. We discuss the various theories circulating around the Sony hack, who may have ultimately been responsible, and why North Korea is the least likely of culprits. We also explain what the US government has to gain from pinning the attack on the North Koreans, despite their flimsy evidence. As US intelligence agencies and both current and former lawmakers in Washington look to legitimize their "cyber war on terror" and the millions spent on cyber warfare "defense," the reaction to the Sony hack has evidenced the expansive potential for digital false flags.

We also touch on the film The Interview, and how the State Department's involvement in a movie depicting the assassination of a sitting head of state is completely in keeping with the CIA's propaganda efforts in Hollywood.

Lastly, we explore issues of privacy, in both the digital and physical realms, and how this latest event fits into the lingering "Snowden effect" in normalizing surveillance and redefining privacy norms.

Geopolitics with Ryan Dawson-“North Korea: Where Should the Focus Be?”

Ryan Dawson Presents Professor Christine Hong

GPSometimes the voices for peace get drowned out by all the saber rattling and chest pounding in the press and general discourse about potential war. Are North Korea's recent actions really actions or predictable reactions to US and South Korean policies such as war games and simulated invasion drills on North Korea? As Ron Paul would point out, what if someone did that to us? How would we react? Joining me today to cover some of the history of the struggle, and the some of the less mentioned facets of war, is Professor Christine Hong from the University of California at Santa Cruz. How can we cool off such a hot spot and proxy for anti-China policies in the Pacific? Tune in.

Korean War 2.0: Deescalate Now

Recent warnings of instability on the Korean peninsula by Russia’s foreign minister Sergey Lavrov come at a most appropriate time – and indeed, there is a frightening possibility that the situation could spin out of control. Since the North was heavily penalized by UN sanctions following its recent satellite launch and nuclear test, Pyongyang has embarked on a near-daily onslaught of belligerent threats, some of which include its invalidation of the 1953 armistice agreement that ended the Korean War, threats to nuke the United States, and threats to occupy South Korea and subsequently take all Americans in the country hostage. Military analysts claim that North Korea is at least several years from building a nuclear warhead or a missile capable of reaching the US mainland – but there is no doubt that if the Kim regime oversteps their approach, it could certainly have severe repercussions for civilians in South Korea and Japan, both in range of North Korea’s rockets.

Despite regular threats of destruction and Pyongyang’s recent proclamation that the two Korean states are officially in a state of war, day-to-day life has retained its normality according to sources on the ground. Needless to say, there is no doubt that civilians on both sides are feeling tense in the current scenario, especially those on disputed South Korean islands in the West sea, just a stones throw away from the North Korean maritime border. The four thousands residents of the South’s Baengnyeong Island, which Kim Jong-un personally threatened to “wipe out” in early March, have been severely hindered from carrying out their day-to-day activities such as fishing due to the joint US-ROK military exercises in the area. Despite inter-Korean relations reaching their lowest point in recent times with the entire South on high alert, most South Koreans are adept at brushing off the North’s rhetoric, but they’re still proceeding with caution.

The Reality Principle -Episode 20

“The New Asia: Power and the Pivot” with Nile Bowie

RPLogoThis week, Eric chats with independent journalist and photographer Nile Bowie about some of the major issues and conflicts in the Asia-Pacific region. Eric and Nile discuss the unrest and violence in the Sabah province of Malaysia and the political context of the conflict in relation to both Malaysia and the Philippines. They also examine the current situation with North Korea and the question of whether or not the DPRK will follow the path of economic progress or hold fast to their political isolation. Additionally, Eric and Nile analyze the territorial disputes in the South China Sea and the larger geopolitical context of that issue, as well as the political transition in China and how that will impact their foreign and domestic policies. Lastly, they detail the horrific Trans-Pacific Partnership and the way in which the United States is using it to exert control over a region increasingly more reliant upon Beijing.

Nile Bowie is an independent journalist and photographer based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. His work has appeared in many international news outlets including Russia Today, Asia Times, Counterpunch, Press TV, New Straits Times, and many more.
