The winds of change are blowing hard in the East. With U.S.-Filipino relations deteriorating in the past weeks, this latest announcement from the Philippines president Rodrigo Duterte has officially severed the last remaining ties between the two countries.
While speaking at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, China, Duterte told Chinese and Philippines business people:
“In this venue, your honours, in this venue, I announce my separation from the United States. Both in military, not maybe social, but economics also. America has lost.”
Duterte also expressed interest in seeking cooperation with Russia’s Vladimir Putin.
“I’ve realigned myself in your ideological flow and maybe I will also go to Russia to talk to Putin and tell him that there are three of us against the world – China, Philippines and Russia. It’s the only way.”
China welcomed Duterte and over 200 other Philippines business people with open arms and a full marching band at the official greeting ceremony, which is not often done. President Xi Jinping said the visit is a “milestone” in relations between the two countries.
On the geopolitical level, this is yet another setback for the global banking and political cabal. While we see propaganda continuing to spread on why China and Russia are such terrible nations, we see them in reality continuing to make diplomatic deal and reestablish peaceful ties with once enemies. With Russia, China, Iran, Syria, Iraq and now the Philippines joining in alliance, we see that the U.S. continues to become isolated. Naturally though, this is to be expected when a nation like the U.S. unlawfully invades countries, overthrows elected governments and silences opposition through media propaganda and other means.
While some might view this as “bad,” this is actually good as yet another nation is openly defying the global banking/political cabal. Rodrigo Duterte made another statement that tells the cabal just what he thinks:
“I will not go to America anymore. We will just be insulted there. So time to say goodbye my friend.”
These statements come on the heels of other statements Duterte made in the past few weeks. Two being that he called Barack Obama a “son of a b****” and also told him to “go to he**.”
Duterte has also threatened to quit the “stupid United Nations.”
While global peace is the ultimate goal for most nations, it is indeed a positive sign to see world leaders rejecting and openly opposing the banking and political cabal that has infected our political, financial and social systems throughout the world. More of this is needed and looks as though it will continue as the people of the world are making it no secret that globalism is not welcome and is being rejected. Take a look at Brexit and the opposition to the global trade deals like the TPP.
With the U.S. continuing to lose once allies, what can the U.S. do differently to be at peace with all other nations? What is it the U.S. leaders can do to be at peace with nations like China, Russia, Iran, Syria and now the Philippines?
