Is Chinese president Xi under house arrest in Beijing? Are a number of Xi’s opponents under arrest? Is Russia’s Vladimir Putin in danger of a coup due to his Ukraine invasion? Are trained Venezuelan militia coming across our southern border to set up terrorist cells throughout our country? Were the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipelines that carried Russian gas to Germany sabotaged, and by who?
These are just a few of the headlines and questions being asked over the past few days, the answers to each having a dramatic impact on the geo-political future for billions of people across the globe. And this is ignoring the on-going supply chain crisis, predicted worldwide catastrophic food shortages, Iranian aggression threatening the Middle East, rapidly rising prices, just completed, secret joint Chinese/Russian naval exercises threatening Alaska and a major hurricane rampaging through Florida.
On most of these issues, the world relies upon America’s ability to discern truth and act rationally upon it to avoid cataclysm.
Like it or not, for the past 75 years, it is America which has led the way with other countries falling in line with the decisions made by Washington, D.C., and the old economic saying that if America’s economy sneezes, the rest of the world catches a cold remains true.
