Josephus,

There are bigger forces at play in the world than a Donald Trump.

He is just a ridiculous person and it should be a lesson to American politicians to choose candidates from amongst their own statesman-like kind.

Otherwise you might end up with Kim Kardashian as the President. Because if a Donald Trump can happen than a Kim Kardashian is also a possibility.

Do you really want to have to sing Hail To The Chief to 'Big Butts' Kardashian?

Biden is now taking action to silence anyone that published unflattering articles about him or Kamila and his family. Do we know another World leader who silences his critics? Can you see how power corrupts.

And in the socialist hellhole of Venezuela, dictator Nicolas Maduro and his allies just leveraged the concept of a “hate law” to silence some of the Marxist tyrant’s last remaining critics, AP reports. “Francisco Belisario, a Venezuelan mayor, retired general and member of

No Jose' we should not accept China as big brother, no more than we should accept America as big brother. I have said many times on the Forum that I believe Australia should follow a course as a nonaligned neutral nation, concentrating on rational self defence. We should be building strategic economic and social partnerships, as an equal, not as a servant with other nations in our region, and that includes China. Any kind of "security" treaty sees the weaker nation being drawn into wars, not of their doing but wars that serve the interest of the dominant big brother regime. Such is the case of Australia and the ANZAS treaty with the United States, because of our alliance or is that reliance, with the US we have been dragged into unjustified wars in Korea, Vietnam and the Middle East, none served Australia's interests, but did much for the interests of the United States.

Dear Paul,

An insurance policy costs. It can be painful to pay the premiums, but not anywhere like the cost if your house burns down. Yes, there comes the stage where the insurance companies charge too much and then you must switch insurers (and forfeit the "loyalty bonus"). Perhaps we should have switched yesteryear, but is this stage really upon us at this time?

While some form or another of insurance is acceptable, decent people do not go and burn their neighbours' houses in winter as a way to insure that their house doesn't catch fire in summer.

Trading with the Chinese regime is like that: they will use your goods in their war machine and in return keep you at the bottom of their list, burning your neighbours first. If not stopped, sooner or later they will work down their list and burn your house too!

Yuyutsu,

"Trading with the Chinese regime is like that: they will use your goods in their war machine and in return keep you at the bottom of their list, burning your neighbours first. If not stopped, sooner or later they will work down their list and burn your house too!"

You are spot on there.

My only criticism is that "Chinese regime" should just read "Chinese" because we are talking about the Chinese nation-state as distinct from just the Chinese state.

You need to speak of the nation-state if you want to understand the PRC. Remember it is the PEOPLE'S Republic of China not the Communists Republic of China.

Paul, who do you propose we ally with if we refuse to surrender to China if they are bearing down with 40,000,000 armed soldiers and 1,000 war ships and submarines and 20,000 aircraft. Do we surrender, to save lives? They are planning that we comply as they cut off trade routes.

America under Biden is now an ally of China a reversal of Trump Policy and is according to AOC proposing adopting CCP policy. It has been proposed by AOC that the children of Trump Voters be removed from their parents and be reeducated in Democrat socialist World Views. Remember Communism believes this is the only way to unify a society, and currently America is bordering on Civil war, because of political views.
