After watching the Norwegian tv series Atlantic Crossing. I wrote this poem about the beginings of WWII and todays WWIII. Just replace thinking of FDR with Biden, Germany with China and princes with prices. The political game is the same and will never change.

In time of weakness
Campains bring fame
Neutrality's bleakness
In a political game

Ignoring the enemy
Watching allies fall
A coward's imfamy
Unable to stand tall

Undermined by royalties
Status undermining favor
Questioned on loyalties
Bipartisanship, an impossible endeavour

The Chinese own large sections of Australia Sluggy, the politicians as usual have sold. Trump told them where to go, but Biden doesn't know where he is!

Yep, it is so sad how many countries sold out to China. Thinking money can solve growth issues. China knows western control is easier, when money does all the talking. China gets away with so many issues. America has forgotten China supplied North Korea in the Korean War, China kicked our lilly white bahookies in Vietnam, and now kicking butt in tech and digital currency. China does not need to actively be in a war, they have plenty of under their thumb to do their bidding. Remember EU bought Huewai hook line and sinker. UK wanted to deny, but it was too obvious 5G and its products are not secure enough for infrastructure. Now Biden wants to make high speed interwebs a high priority and calls it infrastructure. It's BS! The push for high speed, is to make us like China, real time tracking and always online. If Biden had eyes, he would see bidges and buildings in decay. Eventually when a train or a bus with school children end up in carnage, high speed Internet won"t be good enough to save anyone. At one time media was in the poor house, here in the states. Radio programming turned corporate, and needed ratings to survive. Bit coin did not grow on trees, and big players used it as much as drug lords. Everything aligned when Trump was in office. Clinton put China up to this crap and gave up her hand in her smugness, as she kept a confident and deseptive attitude for Democrat plans. China did a lot of under the table funding, knowing it would disrupt truth and create separatism. US media won't blame China, as its the golden child. America needs to follow the money with all the BS stragies going on, both on domestic and global. Digital currancy hides a lot of it. Only a mob could launder money like it.
