Iran, Russia, China, Turkey Celebrate ‘Collapse’ Of U.S.

The goal of these countries during the current U.S. crisis is to use it to their advantage to achieve gains.

Authoritarian regimes throughout the world are pushing narratives that appear to gloat over and celebrate that chaos unfolding in the United States. On Monday, Iran’s media pushed stories that highlighted the “collapse,” while quoting Russian sources portraying that the US is flailing about as its world order comes crashing down.

The US became the world’s most powerful country, a global hegemonic superpower, after the Soviet Union and its client states fell apart in 1989. However, Russia, China, Iran and increasingly Turkey have all awaited the period when the world would become multi-polar again. They have sought to work more closely together, and they have sat frequently at global forums that the US does not attend.

To coordinate efforts against the US, these countries all have state media that is well funded, such as RT, TRT, Iran’s Tasnim and Fars News and numerous Chinese media outlets. The policies of these countries are to slowly undermine the US and wait for moments of US weakness to push their agendas.

The leadership in Turkey and Iran view their goal as undermining the US through a more religious lens linked with the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and Muslim Brotherhood that influences Tehran and Ankara respectively. Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdoğan sought to capitalize on the recent riots in the US, claiming that America is part of an “unjust order” in the world.

Iran’s former president made similar comments about the declining U.S. “order.” This is a reference to the concept of the “axis of resistance” in Iran, and the defeat of U.S. “arrogance.” Ever since the Islamic Revolution in Iran of 1979, there had been a call for a third way between the U.S. and Soviet Union in the 1980s that would bring about the defeat of Western systems and the rise of political Islam rooted in Tehran and then in Ankara.

Ankara is a nominal U.S. ally, but it has drifted away and signed deals to acquire Russia’s S-400 anti-missile defense system. It seeks to partition Syria with Iran and Russia. Turkey and Iran coordinate in efforts against Israel and both support Hamas. They broadly work together against other U.S. partners, such as Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the UAE and Egypt.

Now the protests in the U.S. and the COVID-19 crisis have made Washington appear to be declining rapidly. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the US was now having to deal with its police misconduct and said the US compared unfavorably with Russia. “Thank God things that happen in America do not happen in [Russia],” he said, according to Russia’s TASS media.

Aleksey Pushkov, a senator in Russia’s parliament and an expert on foreign policy, argued on Twitter that the US is crumbling. He said that US withdrawals from Afghanistan and Syria, Turkey ordered the US to leave and attacked US Kurdish allies, was an example of American decline.

He also tweeted that the US crumbling due to COVID-19 and the inability of the US to help Europe or its allies at the peak of the pandemic. He said America has been on a “hysterical” tirade against China and now faces an internal schism and racial rebellion.

Iran was pleased with Pushkov’s words, writing an article about them at Tasnim as if to affirm the Iranian regime’s own view. Meanwhile, Iran’s IRGC said it was stronger than ever and that it was resisting the “pharaonic, dictatorial, terrorist United States.”

Turkey has mobilized all its state media propaganda resources against the US. TRT’s headlines are directed at bashing the US as part of a state-controlled effort run by Ankara. It has an opinion piece on its homepage about US corporations “looting” black communities, an obvious and ironic title designed to make it appear that it is US businesses looting people, as opposed to protesters doing the looting, thus making it seem like a normal form of resistance. Turkey supports the protests, but suppresses dissent at home – just like China, Iran and Russia. TRT highlights police brutality in the US even though it never critiques police brutality in Turkey.

The goal of Turkey, Iran, China and Russia during the current US crises is to use it to their advantage to press gains. Turkey has been flooding Libya with weapons and Syrian mercenaries during the crisis. China has pushed up against India in a border dispute. Iran is flexing its muscles at home and sending tankers to Venezuela. Russia has sent warplanes to Libya and Syria.

Meanwhile, all these countries want to leverage the economic crisis of the pandemic to their advantage. Turkey is designing a new fighter jet that Russia’s media heralds as a possible replacement for the F-16. Russia is pushing its defense systems, and Turkey wants to work with Iran, Malaysia and Pakistan to improve economic relations and expand its role in the Mediterranean.

Concern over the rise of these countries has led to other countries scrambling to counter-balance. Egypt, Greece, Cyprus, the UAE and France as seeking to counter Turkey’s growing role in the Mediterranean. Globally, US allies are concerned that the chaos in the US, where the US military is now being deployed, could represent a decline of US ability to concentrate abroad. That will mean all those that have been waiting for the US to reduce its footprint will be running to fill the vacuum.

Already, Russia and Iran are running toward Afghanistan, and Turkey and Russia are sponging up Libya. The race is on, the scramble to grab up properties as the US appears to teeter. From eastern Libya to Afghanistan to Asia and Africa, everywhere the US may appear weak, the adversaries are preparing. The big four – China, Russia, Turkey and Iran – are poised to exploit and emerge stronger. Where once George Bush Sr. spoke of a new world order, now these countries want to bury that US world order amid the chaos.

Stick A Fork In It: Trump Celebrates Spectacular Implosion Of Biden Campaign With Coffin Dance Meme

President Trump shared a meme on Facebook celebrating the end of Joe Biden’s presidential campaign following the presumptive Democrat nominee’s recent comments regarding black people.

Trump’s timely meme, published with no comment, follows Biden’s disastrous interview with The Breakfast Club last week, in which he told host Charlamagne that God, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

Lunatic Fringe Journalist Profess She’d Still ‘Vote for Biden If He Boiled Babies and Ate Them’

A liberal journalist has declared she would still “vote for Joe Biden if he boiled babies and ate them” because “taking back the White House is that important.”

Katha Pollitt, a journalist and author of books about abortion and Hillary Clinton, said, “I would vote for Joe Biden if he boiled babies and ate them. He wasn’t my candidate, but taking back the White House is that important.“

Katha Pollitt, a long-time essayist and columnist for The Nation, a left-wing publication, made the radical statement in her disturbing May 20 article, “We should Take Women’s Accusations Seriously. But Tara Reade’s Fall Short.

According to Pollitt, reelecting President Trump “will replace what remains of our democracy” with “unchecked rule” by “religious fanatics” and “gun nuts, and know-nothings” — and she would rather have a baby-eating homicidal maniac in charge than a “religious nut” who supports the Second Amendment.

Pollitt writes, “I would vote for Joe Biden if he boiled babies and ate them. He wasn’t my candidate, but taking back the White House is that important.

The environment?” she adds, “Education? Public health? The rights of voters, workers, immigrants, people of color, and yes, women? Forget them. And not just for the next four years: A Trump victory will lock down the courts for decades.

I cannot believe that a rational person can grasp the disaster that is Donald Trump and withhold their support from Biden because of Tara Reade,” writes Pollitt. 

CNS report: Pollitt then goes on at great length explaining why she does not believe Tara Reade’s accusation.

For the record, Pollitt in 2018 wrote that Christine Blasey Ford’s completely unsubstantiated claim against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was a “credible allegation.”  The subtitle to her article reads, “Christine Blasey Ford has come forward with highly credible allegations of sexual assault that deserve a full airing and much reflection.

In a Sept. 27, 2018 tweet, describing Blasey Ford’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Pollitt wrote, “She is so brave.”

Near the end of her piece on Tara Reade and Joe Biden, Pollitt says, “Whether or not you believe Tara Reade — and I’m betting that the case for believing her is going to get weaker rather than stronger as the weeks go by — you should vote for Joe Biden if he is the nominee. And he is almost sure to be the nominee, despite the best efforts of some Sanders supporters to use Reade to force Biden to step aside.”

Moreover, there is nothing hypocritical about feminists supporting Biden,” writes Pollitt.  “We have a perfect right to support the candidate who will be better for women and their rights than the one who will send us back to the 1950s. It is the only intelligent thing to do.

Controversy Erupts After Biden Tells Black Voters Considering Trump “You Ain’t Black”

Joe Biden just massively insulted black voters – telling a popular black radio host on Friday that he ‘ain’t black’ if he was still weighing whether to support Biden or Trump in the November election.

Biden’s comment came during an interview with “The Breakfast Club” host Charlamagne tha God, who challenged the former VP over his decades-long record on racial issues and asked him about possibly choosing a black, female running mate, according to Politico.

“I’m not acknowledging anybody who is being considered, but I guarantee you, there are multiple black women being considered. Multiple,” said Biden of his (handlers’) search for a VP nominee.

It was then that an aide to the Biden campaign could be heard interjecting into the conversation, attempting to cut short the interview. “Thank you so much. That’s really our time. I apologize,” the aide said.

You can’t do that to black media!” Charlamagne retored.

“I do that to white media and black media because my wife has to go on at 6 o’clock,” Biden shot back, apparently referring to a subsequent media appearance by Dr. Jill Biden, before adding: “Uh oh. I’m in trouble.”

“Listen, you’ve got to come see us when you come to New York, VP Biden,” Charlamagne said. “It’s a long way until November. We’ve got more questions.”

“You’ve got more questions?” Biden replied. “Well I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.

Charlamagne explained that “it don’t have nothing to do with Trump, it has to do with the fact [that] I want something for my community.” But Biden remained adamant in promoting what he described as a career of public service devoted to advancing civil rights. –Politico

Needless to say, while Biden’s comment will probably go unnoticed by his MSM surrogates, it hasn’t slipped past Twitter users:

PBS Caught Making Propaganda Film For The CCP

Taxpayer-Funded PBS Stations Caught Working with China on Chinese Propaganda Film PBS affiliates receiving millions of dollars in federal funds every year

Several taxpayer-funded PBS stations have been caught working with a Chinese agent to produce a pro-China propaganda film for the ruling Communist Party. The PBS affiliates receive millions of dollars in federal funding every year. However, the stations are airing a pro-Beijing documentary produced in conjunction with CGTN, a Chinese-government controlled media outlet.CGTN is registered as a foreign agent with the Department of Justice.

The film, entitled “Voices from the Frontline: China’s War on Poverty,” does not disclose CGTN’s links to the Chinese Communist Party. The film’s producer, Robert Lawrence Kuhn, also has ties to Chinese officials and the government’s foreign propaganda wing, State Council Information Office – a detail which is also not disclosed.
