“In many ways, Brazil’s movement is actually far more advanced than we are in the United States,” Bannon tells Bloomberg. He views Brazil as being among a handful of countries where Trumpist political forces could herald a global revival of right-wing nationalism—an outcome he’s actively promoting. “In 2016, the Brexit win in June was inextricably linked to Trump’s upset victory in November,” he says. “Bolsonaro’s heavyweight title fight against Lula next October,” as well as the showdown in France between President Emmanuel Macron and his far-right challenger, Marine Le Pen, “will set the stage for the American midterm elections,” Bannon says. Many U.S. political experts expect Republicans to retake the House of Representatives in November 2022.
It’s no secret that United Statesians are more ignorant of the world beyond their national borders than the peoples of other countries. That ignorance serves a purpose. How can you keep screaming “We’re Number One” and believing you have it better than the rest of the world if you are in possession of accurate information?If you work in the U.S., you don’t know how bad you have it

The United States openly seeks to dominate the world. This becomes difficult as China’s economic power grows while the United States stagnates. The Chinese developed trade relationships with many nations in Africa, a region the United States considers part of its empire. The United States created an Africa Command after the Cold war ended and now maintains dozens of small bases and thousands of troops on the continent. The president of Guinea, Alpha Conde, developed close relations with China and profitable trade deals. China is Guinea’s chief customer for its principal export — bauxite, which used to produce aluminum. China imports half of Guinea’s production that provides half of the world’s aluminum. China provided funds to improve Guinean hospitals and infrastructure to ensure good relations. This friendship upset the United States, so President Conde was ousted in a 2021 coup.The Empire’s 2021 Coup in Guinea (opens in YouTube)
