In terms of post-Covid recovery, China is one of the fastest growing economies in the world and has a good chance to double its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by 2035, according to Helen Qiao, head of Asia economics at Bank of America Global Research.

She told CNBC that some reform measures would help China get there. The doubling of China’s GDP would require an average annual growth of 4.7 percent for the next 15 years.

Qiao said: “We think China would be able to achieve it.”

The economist predicted that, in addition to doubling its GDP, China would surpass the U.S. as the world’s largest economy in around 2027 to 2028.Read More »

Journal of People report

jop march 2 crowd

Gatherings in a society tell about the society. It is an issue of politics. To the parties concerned with society, gathering is an issue to examine.

A Los Angeles Times report – “Thousands of pro-Trump crowds have gathered since he took office. No state has had more than California” by Rahul Mukherjee said:

“Despite its reputation as a leader of resistance, California saw more pro-Trump crowds than any other state during the president’s term in office.

“That’s according to the Crowd Counting Consortium, a project from the University of Connecticut and Harvard University that documents political gatherings of all kinds. By combing news reports and social media, the group has cataloged some 4,500 pro-Trump gatherings nationwide since he took office in 2017. Of those, 417 events were in California. Florida was a distant second, with 253 events.”Read More »

Trump & Biden White House: Break up Big Techs AND do not Sanction Saudi Prince

A Journal of People report

jop march 2

Former U.S. President Donald Trump has called for breaking up giant technology companies and taking away their Section 230 liability protections.

Trump argued that the Big Tech mutes conservative voices like his own.

Trump said Sunday at the CPAC conference in Orlando: “The time has come to break up Big Tech monopolies and restore fair competition. Republicans, conservatives must open our platforms and repeal section 230 liability protections.”

Trump argued: While in the past the public had a chance to hear both sides of the argument before making an informed decision, the big tech censorship disproportionately targeted conservatives, depriving them of the right to be heard. “You would win, you would lose. But now there is no debate, because they refuse allow our side to even speak or to be heard,” said Trump.Read More »


Secretly, Biden’s Foreign Policies Are Trump’s Foreign Policies (The Criminal Hypocrisy Rolls On)

Eric Zuesse

Biden’s foreign policies are putting Democratic Party lipstick onto the Republican Party’s pig. That’s his ‘change’, on US foreign policies. Though President Joe Biden is publicly critical of Trump’s foreign policies, he’s continuing almost all of them and is changing only minor ones. The changes are almost entirely in rhetoric, not in actual policies, as will be documented here.

A good example of this entirely rhetorical ‘difference’ is described in a February 19th article from Reuters, Drawing contrast with Trump, Biden promises US allies a partnership that’s not transactional. Biden’s policy, to “promote democracy over autocracies,” condemns Trump’s polices as having been “transactional” instead of based on “values.” But, actually, America’s invasions, and coups, and economic sanctions, during the past few decades, have been ‘justified’ by condemning the US regime’s target-nations (Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, and Ukraine before America’s 2014 coup there — and now Ukraine is ‘our ally‘) as not being “democratic,” and as not adhering to ‘human rights’, as if the US regime itself were an authentic democracy, or were unquestionably better on human rights than the targets against which its aggressions are directed — none of which is true.Read More »


US Secretary of State Blinken Threatens Venezuela at UN Human Rights Council (+Nicaragua, Cuba, Iran, China, Russia)

Orinoco Tribune | February 25, 2021

During the first participation of a diplomat from the Biden administration at the United Nations, new US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken threatened the Venezuelan people—ironically within the Human Rights Council.

Blinken was in charge of requesting the return of the US to the Council for the 2022-26 period. The diplomat foolishly took advantage of the human rights platform to lash out at free and sovereign states: “We will continue to denounce abuses in places like Venezuela, Nicaragua, Cuba and Iran,” asserted Blinken.Read More »

CARACAS — Unless you read the local Venezuelan press, you are unlikely to know that an American secret agent is currently standing trial in Venezuela on charges of terrorism and weapons trafficking.

Matthew John Heath was arrested in September outside Amuay and Cardon oil refineries in possession of a submachine gun, a grenade launcher, C4 explosives, a satellite phone and bricks of $20 bills. The Venezuelan government also alleges that he was found carrying a small coin or badge that CIA employees use to prove their identity to one another without raising suspicions. On Wednesday, Heath pled not guilty to all charges.Read More »


Network in Defense of Humanity Letter to President Nicolás Maduro, Honoring your Dignity and the Heroism of all the Venezuelan People

RESUMEN | February 27, 2021

“In Europe everything is done for tyranny, here it is for liberty; which certainly makes us enormously superior; they support thrones, kings; we support peoples, republics; they want dependence, we want independence”.

-Simón Bolívar in Lima, February 23,1825

President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela; Nicolás Maduro Moros

Dear Mr. President:

It is possible that we have not been able to express sufficiently our solidarity and appreciation for the anti-imperialist and anti-capitalist struggle that the government that you lead is permanently promoting through your responsibility as president and legitimate depositary of the confidence of your people. It is necessary today to express our recognition of your courage in the maelstrom of adverse scenarios produced at great speed and with great diversity. Under the convictions, matured by the example of our peoples and our heroes, there is no room for flattery or for the “cult of personality”. On the contrary, our REDH was born to make criticism an emancipatory tool at the service of the people, especially fraternal criticism that perfects social struggles. Embracing this original slogan, it is appropriate today to recognize the courage and determination to take a measure that corresponds to the responsibility of your popular mandate, to defend the most cherished principles on which our struggles have developed, such as the self-determination of the peoples and the rejection of all foreign interference in internal affairs, which make for sovereignty and independence. In this sense, we applaud with standing ovation the expulsion of the Ambassador of the European Union in Venezuela, in accordance with the powers that you have as President of the Republic and provoked by the unacceptable interference of the diplomat in the internal affairs of your country.Read More »
