William de Berg, Can the West Strike Back?

William de Berg

In 2000, Russia was flat on its back after the fall of the Soviet Union and the rape of its economy by Western-backed oligarchs, while China was still emerging from decades of impoverishment created by disastrous communist economic policies.    Western companies were pervading each nation, and unrest funded by Western intelligence agencies was popping up all around them.

But by 2020 China was the leading trading partner to over 80% of the world and at the forefront of most technological fields, while Russia and China were both fielding advanced military technologies such as hypersonic tactical missiles and super-cavitating torpedoes that are still but a gleam in the eye of the West.

How did it happen?   For one, Russia and China have been led by strong, visionary leaders with a mission to reverse over a hundred years of humiliation at the hands of Western powers.   Second, these nations are blessed with outstanding educational systems, turning out large numbers of savvy high school and college graduates fluent in English and knowledgeable about Western technology and ideas.  Third, by being gifted and, in some cases, having stolen Western advanced technologies, Russia and China quickly caught up and surpassed the West in military and other fields.

Fourth, their export-driven economies created low governmental debt and high foreign reserves, allowing for rapid economic growth and innovation.  Fifth, China and Russia merged together their historical alliances, commensurate economic strengths, and valuable resources to lead and dominate over a third of the world’s population in the form of the Eurasian axis.   Finally, as all of this transpired, internal disputes and unrest (Chechnya in Russia; Xinjiang in China) were systematically eliminated while traditional social values were defended.

Fast forward to 2023, where it is now the West that is in disarray and lagging economically and militarily, as evidenced by the disastrous backfire of anti-Russian and anti-Chinese sanctions and the shocking failures of NATO’s “wunderwaffen” in Ukraine (e.g., the “Bradley Cemetery” in Zaporozhye) [1].    Depleted of most of its arsenal, NATO can no longer threaten or even match Russia’s military, and the Chinese—who have won almost every wargame exercise in the Western Pacific over the past decade or more [2]—are almost dismissive of the United States’ military.   The West, which has dominated the geopolitical arena for over three centuries, is now facing the same dire situation the Russians and Chinese faced in the latter part of the 20th Century.   But can it claw its way back?

If one compares the ingredients used to fuel the rise of Russia and China in the 21st Century to the situation in the West today, the prognosis is not good.   For one, the aging, corrupted, and in some cases even demented leaders of the West cannot begin to match the strength and purposiveness of current Russian and Chinese Presidents Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping.   Meanwhile, Western educational systems are in decline, especially in the United States where vast swaths of high school graduates do not even possess the rudiments of secondary-school knowledge—only about a quarter of secondary students in the United States are proficient at grade level in math [3]—and where almost no one is fluent in Russian or Mandarin or has lived in or is knowledgeable about those nations.   In terms of resources, Europe especially is out of gas (literally) and dependent on increasingly hostile Asia and Africa for key raw materials.

And the high debt loads of Western governments—averaging 90% and 120% of GDP in the European Union and United States, respectively [4]—hamstring their ability to invest in new educational and physical infrastructure.  Finally, much of the West is seemingly rejecting the traditional social and cultural values that anchored its historical rise, dispensing with family and faith and even free speech while coercively treating its minions as guinea pigs for depopulation in the form of toxic “pseudo-vaccines” created by a runaway “Big Pharma”.   Unlike in China and Russia, societal unrest fueled by untamed migration, open orders, and racial division—actually encouraged by the Western elites—is increasing as riots in France and burgeoning crime in the United States can attest.

As with any illness, the first task of the patient is to acknowledge forthrightly the reality of one’s sickness and weakness and then take remedial steps to overcome it.    But the reverse is happening as Western governments and their media collaborators try their best to deplatform, imprison, and silence the voices of those who see through the lies and propaganda to recognize the true rot of their societies.   So, don’t expect an “Empire Strikes Back” sequel anytime soon.

    Biden to Reinstate COVID-19 Lockdowns Beginning September, TSA Whistleblowers Claim


    The Biden administration is preparing to enforce full COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions beginning as early as mid-September, according to TSA and border patrol whistleblowers.

    “A “high level” TSA official told Infowars that they were informed during Tueday’sTuesday meeting of new memorandums and policies to start restricting, including mask wearing.

    The policies would reinstate the mask mandate for TSA and airport employees next month.

    Furthermore, the TSA whistleblower claimed that mask-wearing would be mandated for pilots, passengers, crew, and all airport patrons, and COVID-19 lockdowns would also be implemented in September.”

    NO WAY, NO HOW!!

    FJB, FJB, FJB…..

  2. Not just where is the ACLU, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, etc.? – How about where is the SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES? This is one of the worst violations of individual rights anywhere in the world, obviously designed to “break” the individual so there will be no trial and no presentation of evidence that the Capitol Police let these protesters in peacefully on January 6th.
    Even if most Americans do not see these images and stories due to the MSM blackout, the rest of the world does and wants nothing to do with the United States anymore.

    1. William, that atrocious treatment alone should serve to bring down the entire illegitimate Biden administration. How can anyone STILL possibly believe that demented monster garnered 81 million votes? Where’s that deep state McCarthy on this? I’ll tell you where he is…still supporting that old witch Pelosi’s policies. It’s sickening beyond comprehension. THIS IS NOT AMERICA ANY LONGER. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE HELL IT IS.




    German MEP, Christine Anderson: The so-called “pandemic” was a beta test—conducted by unelected globalists—to see how easy it would be to seize totalitarian control, under the pretext of a global “emergency”.

    “The goal, ultimately, is to transform our free and democratic societies into totalitarian societies. Their goal is to strip each and every one of us of our fundamental rights, of freedom, democracy, the rule of law. They want to get rid of all of this.”

    “In the entire history of mankind, there has never been a political elite concerned about the well being of regular people, and it isn’t any different now… For god’s sake, stop complying. Start rebelling. They are out to get you if you do not resist.”

  4. The following quick report is beyond the pale. To put it succinctly, it’s absolutely thoroughly effing disgusting the deep state has the hubris, audacity and right to treat an American citizen in this manner. May those responsible burn in the fires of hell. My own dog has a room twice this size and is treated like a king in comparison. I pray those responsible are held accountable. A BUCKET FOR A TOILET? WTF?

    A NATIONAL DISGRACE: Photos Leaked Of Horrific January 6 Prisoner Abuse – Tortured 5 Months In Isolation In A Closet Room With Light On And A Bucket For A Toilet — Where Are The ACLU, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch?


    January 6 political prisoner Ryan Samsel has been held in prison without trial now since January 2021.

    During his two-and-a-half years without trial Ryan has been moved around to 17 different facilities. Ryan has been beaten, abused, tortured, and neglected since his arrest in January 2021.

    Earlier this week The Gateway Pundit received exclusive photos from Ryan Samsel’s prison cell at the FDC in Philadelphia. The cell was a size of a closet with a light on all of the time. The cell had a thin blue mattress, no sheets or blankets, no clothing, and he was kept here for five months straight.


    1. The USA with emense freedoms, resources and benefits has one of the largest prison populations in the world. IMO the US is one of the most depraved, morally ugly places on earth.
