Bitcoin is holding the $13,000 something range and may well overtake $14,000 again with the crypto showing some considerable strength.
For now however it is somewhat stable as all eyes turn on the presidential election which may well decide what course America takes and the world.
Betting markets have Biden as a clear favorite, a surprising result considering the race is fairly close, but even Texas is now apparently a toss up.
After four years that have ended up with what plenty think is an asymmetric pandemic that seems to affect China none at all and fully all others, a GDP down the pit and debt levels in stratosphere, riots in many American streets, a land of the free full of social media censorship, a global reputation for America that you’d think can’t fall any lower, a politicized holy city of Jerusalem, a tariffed Europe, and Russian spies in NATO, one does have to wonder whether America will want to continue the experiment, or go with the more bland bureaucratic Biden.
The legacy of Trump’s four years will be necessarily his negotiations with China, and in the middle of a pandemic when some of our young have passed prematurely due to cancelled hospital activities, as well as many of our old, this will be at the very top for many voters and perhaps even the only issue they ultimately decide upon.
We all knew there were very high stakes at such negotiations. That it was very complex, and very much next level matters.
Now that they’re clearly over, Trump failed at it would be easy to say because he did fail. There’s no other description but a failure regarding a negotiation that ends in a pandemic.
But did Trump fail or China? And that is a difficult question, because it is not clear it would have ended another way if there was a different administration.
That the American intelligence service failed is utterly clear, and it failed because China purged them as New York Time reported. So America walks in the dark there, and when you walk in the dark, you walk carefully. Touching the land first to see whether there is any land, whether there’s a hole instead that can’t hold your full body.
Did Trump walk carefully? The assassination of the Iranian commander betrays a certain nativity or maybe even delusion which now plays at a far different scale, but with the same response by Trump.
That is, no response because both Iran and China checkmated him by using asymmetric warfare.
He lost in the battle of intellect, and lost at great expense to the American citizen due to his inability to comprehend the simple fact that others have free will as well.
A crass mountaineer of no culture or pen humiliated in the arena of the great devil’s game.
The attack on Vienna however reminds us Biden maybe will bring that stuff back, while the pandemic will probably end.
Meaning they’re saying choose what you want to be terrorized by, some random street attacks or some random pandemic.
We all know the answer, but it’s good to see the choices laid so plainly and the nature of the devils that rule come forth so explicitly for clearly the Moloch worshipers can’t offer peace as a choice.
How can there be peace when interest is due on mountains of debt that Moloch sits hungry to suffocate.
State terror instead apparently is the only offer, but at least you can choose which flavor you prefer, because your choice of course matters, hence the rising bitcoin.
