Introduction by Chris Moore:
It should be obvious by now to anyone who has been paying attention what has happened to the U.S. over the last decades. A thieving, cosmopolitan Zionist elite with no loyalties to anyplace but Israel and any nation but itself jumped into bed with the low character whores who comprised the post WWII U.S. leadership, whispered in their ears about how they could all get rich by plundering the country and the dollar world reserve currency status, and the self-same whores sold their souls and sold out the country to the Zionists for ten cents on the dollar.
The Zionists always pull the same treachery wherever they go, searching for the weakest, dumbest and most character-lacking among the Gentile elites through which their racket can slowly infiltrate the establishment via ear whispering, grandiose promises, ingratiation, and racket nepotism.
It so happened that among the post WWII generation of elites, they had a bounty crop of low character snakes to choose from, so they were able to infiltrate and plunder faster than they ever could imagine.
In fact, the country has been stripped so quickly that they're now scrambling for their next target. They'd originally planned a much more languid, leisurely feast.
China and Japan cut out the middleman
David Brancaccio: China and Japan will increasingly trade each other's currencies directly, without using the U.S. dollar to set the exchange rate. The change, starting Friday, is a new step toward a world where the U.S. dollar is not last word in global currencies. It's a bit like buying a house without a realtor or a stock without a broker.
Joining us for more context is the BBC's Roland Buerk in Tokyo. Good morning, Roland.
Roland Buerk: Good morning.
Brancaccio: So how much trading is there between Japan and China via the U.S. dollar?
Buerk: Well, a very large amount. China has overtaken the United States to be Japan's biggest trading partner -- trade has increased exponentially over the last 10 years. So what's happening now is that the two countries have agreed that from June 1, there can be direct trading between the yen and the yuan. The idea is to cut out the middleman.
