Well if the rivers don't dry up here in The USA we can still eat,that's if farmers/ranchers accept Fiat money for their grains and livestock ? Pharmaceuticals are beginning to dry up also.I would be stocking up on any needed drugs to survive with.😕

Apart from overt military encounters, I’ll be watching a few key themes going forward: increased volatility in supply chains, in terms of freight volumes; capacity availability and transportation rates; less visibility into China’s economic activity; and a more diverse, less China-centric trans-Pacific trade.

China’s zero-COVID policies and recent tensions over Taiwan have accelerated this confrontation, which could lead to further decoupling between the U.S. and China. But the fundamental issues will likely persist beyond present crises. 

The American media coverage of President Xi Jinping’s address to the 20th Communist Party Congress in Beijing last week took note of Xi’s pessimistic tone, warning party members to prepare China for confrontation and crisis. Politico’s Phelim Kine called Xi’s view of U.S.-China relations “increasingly bleak.” Bret Stephens played into the rivalry, writing a cynical op-ed in The New York Times sarcastically thanking Xi for running his country so poorly as to make the United States seem good by contrast.

    Its all fake new and exactly the opposite. This is an election year and the media needs to lie more to make DEMOCRATs look good.

    Biden has a love affair with China and dont forget he is sending oil from our strategic reserves to the Chinese and raised corporate taxes here in the USA so it will again be cheaper to buy Chinese. DEMOCRATs want to bring about the same type of Marxist socialism to America.

    The USA has also sent most of our prescription drug manufacturing capabilities off to China via greedy democrat dealings. We now depend on them just about every single time a pill bottle is popped. Meanwhile, every other day a recall warning says not to take those blood pressure meds or whatever because they contain cancer causing materials.


    If you ask me, we have given the Chinese the means to eliminate a whole lot of Americas population without the need for a military confrontation!


    I avoid going to cemetery's now days because my ears cannot stand all of the noise coming from previous generations of Americans turning over in their graves!
