Contrary to popular opinion, I love Donald Trump. He is the president Americans deserve. He is the realest American to ever lead America. He is also MAGA - Making Asia Great Again. Let’s briefly go through his wins.
He destroys the carefully crafted image of a racially tolerant, free, liberal America based on rule of law.
He betrays and alienates his allies left and right to the point where Germany has pushed for independence from the American SWIFT system.
He has surrounded himself with ignorant worms such as high level economic adviser, Peter Navarro.
He destroys America’s credibility by tearing up treaties, deals, and pending agreements [withdrawal from Iran nuclear deal, abandon Paris Climate Agreement, abandon TPP, back stabbed China who helped sanctioned North Korea to ease usa-China trade tensions, negotiating then abandoning a trade settlement with China, requesting trade talks with China and then slapping tariffs on China, etc]
He calls countries including its southern neighbor, “shit holes” filled with rapists and murderers.
He scapegoats ethnic minorities for America’s problems. Thereby, giving a national nod to white supremacists, neo-nazis, white nationalists, and the alt right to live out their barely concealed racist hate against ethnic minorities.
He unleashed a frenzy of xenophobia across the country - especially against the Chinese, who FBI director refers to as a “whole society threat”. This has the wonderful effect of discouraging the migration of intelligent Asian expats/students.
He reduced spending for scientific research and increased the war department’s onerous budget. This has the double whammy of encouraging scientists to leave for greener pastures while dumping more money into a bloated military that is impotent against its rivals, mainly China and Russia [anti stealth radars, anti ship missiles, and MAD].
Started a trade war that will hurt America far more than China in the long run. This requires some explaining.
China slaves away while choking on pollution for pennies on the dollar while Western corporations reap the lion’s share of the profits while enjoying a cleaner environment. Western corporations enjoy huge profit margins selling high value branded goods and services. The services balance is wildly in America’s favor. Yet, they omit this fact. Western corporations enjoy a dominant position in many market segments. The trade war will raise anti-Western sentiment and allow native Chinese brands to flourish instead. This will happen as China’s market continues to rapidly grow effectively locking Western companies out of the lucrative Chinese market.
There are some products/services that China needs to import from America for now [cpu, software], but substitutes are either available or will be available soon. They may not be at the bleeding edge, but it’s not necessary.
China imports “wants” - not “needs”
Meanwhile, Americans need affordable Chinese products to survive. There are no substitutes at the same price, scale, reliability, and speed as China. No other country posses the same level of educated intelligent work force, industry experience, energy and logistics infrastructure, and supply chain. His tariff’s are a tax on the American consumer who already have extremely low savings, high unemployment rate [see shadowstats.com], are one medical disaster away from bankruptcy, and are competing against ever more competitors abroad [who can work for less], etc. There’s a reason Walmart grew to dominate the retail landscape over the past several decades - American consumers rely on cheap goods to survive. American consumers buy at Walmart because they get the most value per dollar spent. That is the same reason nations buy from China. No other country provides better value. Any attempt to buy elsewhere will result in higher prices, lower quality, slower delivery, etc.
Americans import “needs” - not “wants”.
The American market represents a shrinking percentage of China’s total export market [4% currently], which is also shrinking as China’s domestic economy grows. Exports represent only 20% of China’s GDP. Only 20% of those exports go to America. Over half of those “exports” are from Western businesses manufacturing in China. The OBOR project and economic ties with Africa and South America are growing rapidly. China can maintain its economic health while diverting exports away from America and to other markets.
Trump is the gift that keeps on giving.
It’s for these and other reasons that I encourage you all to sing praises to this ass clown whenever you can. Never interrupt your enemy when they are making a mistake. Pour fuel on the fire. I hope he gets re-elected.The longer he stays in the oval office, the faster the American empire dies while giving us comedy gold.
I know he is bad news for the few millions of Asians in America. However, Asia proper’s billions will grow in strength. It’s a good a trade.
For all his bluster, he seems less inclined to use military force to achieve his goals. Although, this could change.
This film is getting really good reviews for its slick writing and excellent acting. It’s a great story that just happens to feature a full Asian family - exactly the type of healthy representation that we’ve been seeking. Congratulations to fellow Asian director/writer, Aneesh Chaganty, and writer, Sev Ohanian for making this film possible. This is the second type of pan-Asian collaboration that has produced good results. The first was the Harold and Kumar franchise.

More will be added over the next few days.
Web app should be added within a week. Exposes and black pill science [though I should rename it to redpill…] will be added later. I’ve been working on another really big project so I’m spread thin.
Warning. I am not an expert on this subject.
Why the American usd was based on gold
First a bit of history.
Fiat currencies gain legitimacy by perception. A currency must be perceived as valuable and reliable to be legitimate. For some time, the American dollar [usd] adhered to some quasi “gold standard”. The usd was backed by gold and owners could exchange usd for an equivalent amount of gold at anytime. America had the world’s largest gold holding at the time. The system was perceived as legitimate.
Why the American usd was based on oil
That changed starting in 1971.
The on-going military failure of the illegal Vietnam War, trade imbalances, and other factors rapidly drained America’s gold reserves. In 1971, president Nixon unilaterally got off the gold standard. America needed a new way to legitimize its currency. The national security adviser, Henry Kissinger, made a deal with Saudi Arabia. America provided military protection. In exchange, Saudi Arabia priced oil in usd. This artificially created demand for usd. All nations must get usd, which is used to buy oil. In essence, the usd was supported by oil instead of gold. This, a pillar of the American regme’s power, is called the petro dollar.
The petro dollar as super theft
It is an unlimited credit card. America can print money to pay for everything. All the usd currency holders are robbed via an imperceptible inflation when the money supply increases. For example, after money printing, a piece of bread that used to cost $1 may now cost $1.1 because there is more money chasing the same amount of goods.
The petro dollar system is supported by the regime’s other pillar, the American military.
Any nation that tried to leave the petro dollar system or create an alternative system was crushed by the regime’s military [see Iraq and Libya].
The petro yuan challenge
Now you understand why the petro yuan is an important event.
If the petro yuan succeeds, even modestly, the demand for usd would drop correspondingly and thus its currency value would also drop. The drop of usd’s value would increase the cost of imported goods from major exporters such as China.
Keep in mind that the American savings rate is an abysmal 5%. One rainy day can ruin their life. An eclipsed petro dollar system would be akin to a thunder storm.
Don’t celebrate too soon
I am doubtful the petro dollar will be dethroned quickly [within months or years]. The biggest reasons are inertia, threats of violence, fear of the unknown, and media control. Despite the usd’s perpetual theft via money printing, it is held by giant institutional investors. It is used extensively in international trade. The American military can still impose its will by violence. The usd does provide relative stability. The petro yuan has no track record yet. Much [not all] of the western media projects the perception that America’s economy is healthy while downplaying its immense structural weaknesses.
I should add that the petro yuan does seem to be positioned to dethrone the petro dollar eventually. This is a chart of the past world reserve currencies.
Each nation enjoyed world reserve currency status when it became a powerful empire that greatly influenced trade. Today, the world’s biggest trading nation is China.
China also has the world’s largest physical economy based on manufacturing eg they actually make useful things. America, in contrast, is increasingly based on FIRE [finance insurance, and real estate.]

The Petro-Yuan Bombshell
For decades, many Asian women, especially Asian “feminists”, juggled two personalities simultaneously.
In one personality, they publicly fought against racism and social injustice. Examples of such injustice include red lining, imperialism, Islamophobia, discrimination, racist stereotypes, police brutality, hate crimes, glass ceilings, etc. The bulk of these crimes are the creation of white men.
In the other personality, they were the white worshiper with zero self respect. Such Asian women are so infamously easy that a white nationalist site has described dating Asian women as a “rite of passage for white nationalists”. Remember, that’s not just any white male, but a white nationalist - the polite term for a white supremacist - a white male who views other races as “beneath” him.
When called out for their dishonesty and hypocrisy, these Asian women resorted to more lies such as…
● “Love” is colorblind / I don’t see color
● It’s just my “preferences”.
● White males “treat me better”.
● Asian men are jerks.
● Asian men have “tiny” penises.
● Asian men are just jealous losers.
● Asian men are hypermasculine/violent
● Asian men are girly
For a long time, with the enormous help of a white male controlled media, they fooled the world into accepting those lies. Not anymore.
Note: It turns out this author only goes half way. She blames racist white males, but ignores Asian women’s complicity. I’ll let these two wisemen sum it up. They do a much better job.
she fails to ask the most important question of all: why are Asian women choosing to partner with racists? Why are they choosing complicity in white nationalism and anti-blackness? Lim deals with this awkward fact by ignoring it…
The uncomfortable truth here is that white nationalists pursue and attain Asian female partners simply because they know they can, and that there are some Asian women who are very willing to partner white racists. There’s no mystery about it.
At first, I didn’t click it because I thought I would be disappointed. Then finally, I clicked it…and was disappointed.
The difference between what I want to see and what I actually see in the media can be summed up in two words: personal responsibility. I’m really not so surprised that the Alt-Right is into Asian women, and I’m not so surprised that Asian women are into Alt-Right white guys. Asian women are often conservative, so there’s no surprise that conservative guys would like them. Many (though of course not all) Asian women also love and idolize White guys, so there should be no surprise there either. What is surprising is that writers in major newspapers continue to talk about problems and ONLY point the finger at White guys. If racist Alt-Right White guys are marrying Asian women, you can’t just question the White guys. Obviously Asian women are also choosing the Alt-Right. Shouldn’t this be at least as big of a story?
