Jimmy Dore interviews Danny Haiphong about escalating tensions on various flashpoints around the globe as Trump and his gang keep trying to advance heir own narrow interest in the coming election while also implementing the bipartisan script to keep and expand US global hegemony. It’s noteworthy that Jimmy, not for the fist time, shows either his political naivety or simply ignorance (or he’s just very clever at setting up leading question to allow his guests to explain the subject efficiently), but, it is his knee-jerk, negative, ethnocentric American reaction about China’s need for censorship that suggests he may at times be out of his depth in broaching these topics—weak, like most Americans, on history and ideology. So Yea, much as I like and admire Jimmy Dore for his enormous contribution and brave reportage, I only wish he’d educate himself more thoroughly about these topics, as that would allow for deeper and more probing discussions. I commend Danny Haiphong for his patient and lucid explanation of a subject that is, as Jimmy demonstrates on this episode, hard to grasp for many Americans.

The Anglo-American Empire and hence its vassals are at war with China. This is not a cold war. It is a very hot one. It is being fought on all continents and with every conceivable weapon. The imperial propaganda apparatus (80% of the world’s mass media, including the unacknowledged control over the Internet — which after all runs on US servers everywhere except in China) — has focused on the narrow issue of “trade war” between the US (reduced to Trump) and China. This is a significant distortion of the facts. With substantial US manufacturing assets in China and China as holder of some 20% of outstanding US government debt, intellectual property and dumping prices — in US markets — are trivial points. Nonetheless these are the kinds of points that fill the pages or broadcast minutes of the media consumed by the “educated classes” in the West.

ANDRE VLTCHEK—France, the U.K., Germany and other EU countries are not necessarily happy with Washington’s foreign policy towards Iran, but their outrage is far from being [just] moral indignation. Iran is big and it is far from being poor. European companies are losing billions of euros in trade, because of the sanctions. For instance, in the recent past, two Iranian airlines were ready to purchase large numbers of brand-new Airbus aircraft, in order to compete with Qatar Airways and the Emirates. Such plans collapsed, because of the U.S. withdrawal from the JCPOA, and the almost immediate imposition of new, senseless but brutal sanctions against Teheran. Now even Mahan Air, a civilian airline, is facing sanctions, allegedly because of its flights to Venezuela, and to several Middle Eastern destinations.

ANDRE VLTCHEK—This has to be repeated, again and again: You cannot call China, a country which was first attacked by the coronavirus, and which defeated it, alone and with great determination and sacrifice, “a country which infected the world”, or “a country which is profiteering from the crisis”. That would be insane, incorrect, and thoroughly vulgar. If anything, China has helped almost the entire world to fight this pandemic. It also quickly shared expertise, and helped those nations which have been hit the most, with both advice and invaluable medical equipment.

ROSA MIRIAM ELIZALDE—We have consumed lies for many years, but now that something has gone out of control, especially psychically, the table is set for the lifelong lunatics and haters. These days, reports Miami New Times, certain Miami “leaders” have put forward the theory that Cuba is behind the epidemic. “It is well known that the Cuban government, after the Bay of Pigs and the missile crisis, began to experiment and get a lot of support from the then-Soviet Union in biological warfare and all kinds of weapons,” said Miami-Dade County Commissioner Javier Souto, an octogenarian who has been in office for decades, and who managed to pass a resolution banning flights to the island — just after the Havana government’s announcement that it had closed its borders.
