It looks like Hillary Clinton has to slink off stage to lick her wounds and wound her husband. She is cooked. Zogby says so. And the ruling elites meet in DC to discuss shoving around the gullible US voters. They muse about the problem of Ron Paul and worry that he might give them some trouble. Meanwhile, Russia, China and Japan have had increasingly fruitful tri party meetings that are generating deals, contracts and energy business and all three are very worried or severely annoyed at all the talk in the US about bomb, bomb, bombing Iran. And a bus is blown up in a possible terrorist attack in Shanghai. This doesn't make the news except briefly in China.

Where do we go from here? My understanding is that probably today, but certainly within 48 hours, about 30 super-delegates will endorse Mr Obama. That should give him further momentum.
John Zogby: 'there is no chance' Clinton can win
Mathematically, this will widen the gap between him and Mrs Clinton. He has a bigger share of the popular vote, more pledged delegates, and will now overtake her in terms of super-delegates too.
I honestly believe that she will find a way to get out of the race before the next primaries - so as to not hurt her future and to not be blamed for hurting Mr Obama and his chances in the general election.
Here are the reasons:
There really is no mathematical chance for her to win
Her campaign is virtually out of money - and it will be difficult for her to raise significant amounts of money after last night
Not enough happened last night to give her any hope, so continuing would only give the appearance of wanting to damage Mr Obama
And we can all wave bye-bye to this wonderful lady who tried to pretend she was a working class broad and not a $125 million dollar bribe taker. We must remember, this $125 million in bribes was NOT fund raising to run for office. This is money the Clintons got for making speeches or writing stuff. Neither Clinton is a wonderful speaker. Indeed, I find both to be grating and much prefer most anyone else. When Bill Clinton lies, for example, his voice gets all weird and it sounds like two voices are speaking. When Bush is lying, he babbles backwards as is appropriate for demon-possessed people. But Bill Clinton does the double voice so beloved of all movies and animes when the Devil is speaking. No, this isn't a golden-tongued orator who keeps us spellbound. And the places this creature made his very expensive speeches were not where masses of people were gathered.
Nope, they were all at dining situations where everyone eats caviar and cannibalize babies, crunching away, drinking fine wines. They didn't even bother to listen unless he was explaining how his Senator wife would protect and treasure pirates. Then they applaud.
But the topic of all this money barely made the surface in this election. This is because all of these people who bribed Clinton to shut up also are pouring their money into all THREE candidates. They desperately need to keep anyone running for office to be their best, best friend. Being fiends, they will run over to Obama and tell him how he, too, can be a multi millionaire. They don't need to do this with McCain. McCain is one of them already just like Mitt Romney is a full-scale pirate. Talking about pirates eating and listening to dumb speeches.....
Luminaries at the Trilateral Commission meeting in Washington expressed confidence that they own all three major presidential candidates, who, despite political posturing, will support sovereignty-surrendering measures such as NAFTA and the “North American Union.”
THESE meetings do NOT make the news. Never, ever do the mainstream media report any of the Ruling Elite meetings. Davos gets reported but even that is very, very thin. Americans are supposed to not notice all of this and one way to do this is to put it all in the Cone of Silence, this huge, huge cavern where all sorts of things happen or people who can't be heard hang out. Indeed, the mainstream media will mock anyone who notices the ruling elites and their money making ways. This is all imaginary, of course. So, here is the meeting of corrupt minds, trying to figure out how to escape a global inflation/banking collapse. I wish I was invited. It could have given me a laugh or two. Perhaps they could pay me a million dollars a speech like they paid Bill Clinton!
While they are confident they can deal with any “potential president,” the Trilateralists paid huge tribute to Ron Paul in an equally large twist of irony, by expressing alarm that he is causing “significant future damage.”
They expressed concern that Paul’s rallies have attracted multitudes of young people who are getting “their political education.” They want Republicans to pressure Paul to drop out now and stop his education rallies. This assignment was given to Thomas Foley, former U.S. House speaker.
They know perfectly well, how to silence people. Power, as Mao mordantly noted in his Little Red Book, grows out of the barrel of an assassin's gun. They knew that the Cone of Silence would prevent 90% of Americans to never hear anything Ron says. But they are as worried about the powers of the internet as China' dictators. Ron Paul's ability to raise up crowds and be heard is due to people seeing his speeches and confrontations on You Tube, for example. I watch these and am very amused by his persistence and brio. The videos showing the GOP desperately trying to keep out any Ron Paul supporters from caucuses are illuminating. The farce of the US electoral process is clear when Ron's supporters storm the barricades.
The rulers don't mind socialism, by the way. Just as they heartily support fascism. But one thing they hate with a passion is anyone talking about MONEY itself. Anyone discussing the banking system, the way money is made, the process or anything, is a danger. They will literally do anything to stop this. At first, they thought, mocking anyone who does this and calling them 'conspiracy nuts' would do the trick. Of course, they throw into the mix all sorts of goofy faux conspiracies like the lunatic idea that Bush and his inept minions planted mini nuclear bombs in the WTC and then took the immense trouble to hire some Arabs and Egyptians to hijack a bunch of jets and fly them into the WTC and Pentagon, etc. So off people run, on incredible and bizarre rabbit chases into the maze where they look foolish and can be laughed at.
But Ron Paul is focused on what matters. One doesn't need any imagination nor any convoluted trickery when explaining how bankers make money out of thin air and how the speculators use pirate coves to enrich themselves and drain nations of wealth. People explaining the truth of our financial systems are terrifying to the rulers! This is their nightmare: the populace waking up to danger and realizing easy debt=slavery and death.
The Trilaterals got down to real work on Saturday, April 26, with a high-powered panel called “U.S. Foreign and Domestic Policy: Broad Outlines for a New Administration.”
It was presided over by journalistic pimp David Gergen, who will write nothing about TC in his magazine, U.S News and World Report. Also participating were Kenneth Duberstein, former White House chief of staff for President Ronald Reagan; Strobe Talbot, president of the Brookings Institution and former deputy secretary of state; and Joseph Nye, former assistant secretary of defense. Henry Kissinger, former secretary of state and long-time Bilderberg leader, was present and listed as a participant. But a TC staff member crossed his name out. Some speculated he had throat problems.
This panel had these orders for the next president: increase foreign aid across the board because “America does not pay its fair share,” pay up the arrears in UN dues, allow as many immigrants into the United States as want to come and provide “amnesty” for illegal aliens already here.
Little, if anything, was said about the fact that American taxpayers pay one-fourth of the UN’s operating costs and one-third of the cost of 130 “peacekeeping missions” or the fact that immigrants from South America depress wages here and the average immigrant family costs the government thousands of dollars a year in welfare, health and other “benefits.”
Kissinger is an indicator: when I heard on the radio, he was going to head the 9/11 Commission, I stopped and laughed and laughed. Cover up time! The elite had opened the door to bin Laden's people so they could succeed. Tracing this conspiracy to let terrorists attack was the job of the 9/11 Commission and when the President put Kissinger in charge, this was an open admission, they were guilty of COMPLICITY. Which means they all should be arrested and charged with treason.
Normally, the only way to do this is to defeat the dictators in war or have a revolution. We had neither. They found a better tool to fix things and dropped Kissinger. But he continues to ooze his lubbery mass about the world stage, drooling Germanic promises of world domination.
I am glad the reporter who published this story is as angry as I am over the business of the US being strong armed into paying for everything. But the real payments are NOT the pennies for 'aid'. It is TRADE. The US must be the final destination of all trade! And in return, we get endless easy loans. Earlier, I published the Mad Magazine cartoons showing the US eagle being sucked dry by EASY LENDING. They knew in 1975, easy loans were fatal. And they know this today. This is very much an item that is kept in the Cone of Silence. I must be one of the very few people who talks about the need for EXPENSIVE loans. Myself, Ron Paul and Volcker, that is. Note that Volcker was not invited to speak...hehehe.
Now let's go to Asia to see what the hell is going on:
Japan's Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda arrives in Moscow today to meet President Vladimir Putin and President-elect Dmitry Medvedev, deliberate on forthcoming G8 summit in Hokkaido and clarify new power configuration of the neighboring country.
The main thing is to establish personal contracts, there are no plans to sign any agreements, a source with Japan’s Foreign Ministry said, specifying that Yasuo Fukuda will separately meet President Vladimir Putin and President-elect Dmitry Medvedev in Moscow.
The highlight of the meeting between Medvedev and Fukuda will be the summit that Hokkaido hosts July 7 through 9. During this event, the leaders of developed nations are expected to find some methods to combine the tasks of economic growth with expensive actions of environmental protection. EU calls for introducing new obligations for each state aimed at drastic reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, while the United States avoid any promises, saying it will be able to contain the emission growth only by 2025.
The Asian powers NEVER go traveling unless they have a bunch of contracts to sign! They are looking for economic and political advantages. Japan has been very alarmed as Hu of China roamed the world with his big briefcase, making deals that cut out Japan. Now, Japan is trying its hand at the same. The fright that China gave Japan when Russia decided to funnel Russian energy to China, was tremendous. A wake up call! Swiftly, Japan rushed to Moscow to plead their own case. Hu and Fukuda have been chatting a lot lately. They can both see the US market is floundering and dying. Both want to keep their own economies afloat. So they are triangulating as well as cooperating. This is why the ruler of Japan did NOT join in the 'Bash China' Olympic flame out. In return, China is playing nice with Japan. China is also courting the Dalai Lama.
Chinese President Hu Jintao on Sunday told Japanese journalists he hoped his government's negotiations this week with a special envoy to the Dalai Lama would lead to positive results.
Hu said progress would require not only "spoken promises, but actual deeds," such as stopping calls for Tibetan independence and related violence.
Informal talks between China and the special envoy to the Dalai Lama began Sunday in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province.
In a change from usual practice by Chinese officials, Hu referred to the Tibetan Buddhist spiritual leader by his full title, rather than an abbreviated form.
Hu said he was optimistic that China would offer Japan another giant panda. He referred to a request from the Japanese government following the death last week of Ling Ling, the last surviving giant panda at Tokyo's Ueno Zoo.
And here is the runner up in the Chinese TV version of 'American Idol'. She is doing a lovely rendition of 'Don't Cry For Me, Argentina.'
I have drawn cartoons about how China uses pandas for diplomatic purposes. This offer signals favors and will be returned by the Japanese. I have also said in the past, the Japanese actually love these sorts of negotiations. The negotiations with the Americans are no fun since Japan runs circles around the US. We blunder about, fearful the Japanese won't love us. But they have contempt for us due to this pathetic need for love. And again, the ruling elites in Europe have a totally different agenda from the Americans who follow Kissinger and both the US and EU are clueless about Asians.
Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda and visiting Chinese President Hu Jintao signed a joint statement Wednesday on promoting a mutually beneficial strategic relationship without referring to "apologies" or "reflection" over Japan's wartime actions in China.
During a joint news conference after the signing ceremony, the two leaders indicated that major progress had been made on the sensitive issue of joint development of gas fields in the East China Sea.
"We were in agreement that an early agreement should be reached after hammering out the details," Fukuda said.
Hu added, "The total picture for resolution of the issue has come into view. We agreed to accelerate the discussions in order to reach an agreement as soon as possible."
I can feel the love. Note that China has no longer any need to harp about WWII and Japan is very careful not to annoy China about WWII. Japan insulted the US repeatedly about WWII and the US blundered about, ignoring these insults. To the relief of Japan, China reacted violently each time. So they kissed and made up! I do hope someone in our bumbling State Department figures this out. It will be too late soon.
Qin Gang: Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. I would like to start with an announcement.
The Chinese Government and people follow closely the strong cyclone that hit some parts of Myanmar and left grave casualties on May 2. President Hu Jintao, Premier Wen Jiabao, and Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi have sent messages to their Myanmar counterparts respectively to convey deep solicitude and sincere condolences to the Government and people of Myanmar. They expressed their confidence that the Myanmar people will overcome the grave difficulties caused by the cyclone and bring life and work back to normal at an early date.
China and Myanmar are friendly neighbors. The Chinese Government has decided to offer the first batch of financial and physical emergency aids worth one million US dollars to Myanmar so as to help it with the rehabilitation.
The disaster-relief materials will be shipped to Yangon by air at the fastest possible pace.
The Chinese Government cares for the Chinese nationals in Myanmar. The Chinese leaders have expressed solicitude to the staff in Chinese Embassy and Consulates as well as Chinese students and nationals and those with Chinese enterprises in Myanmar. The Foreign Ministry launched the emergency response mechanism immediately, and maintains close communication with the Embassy in Myanmar. The work of the Embassy has returned to normal, all staff there are safe and the damaged parts of the premises is being repaired. Chinese students and the rest of the Chinese in Myanmar are all safe. The Embassy there has not received any report of Chinese casualties.
China has news conferences which are ignored in the West. In the middle of this one, a reporter asked about the bus that was blown up in Shanghai on Sunday. 'What the hell???' I said. I looked in the news and there were exactly two stories: one in Malaysia and one in Xinhua. Queer, that. The death toll from the typhoon that hit Burma climbs and is over 60,000. This is a terrible catastrophe. Today, Tokyo was rocked by two 6+ earthquakes and little happened. This same typhoon, if it hit Japan, would cause very little damage.
But poor Burma! The dictators there have reduced everyone to total poverty! Like in New Orleans, the masses live in poor, collapsing housing that is easily destroyed in violent storms. Shanty towns are not much protection from wind, rain or earthquakes. The Chinese will be allowed to bring in aid because they have no desire to overthrow the government any more than the US wishes to overthrow the despotic Saudi Arabian royals.
Q: Iran rejected the basket of incentive measures proposed by the six-nation Foreign Ministers' meeting on the Iranian nuclear issue. Do you believe it's the time for tougher sanctions against Iran?
A: The six-nation Foreign Ministers' meeting on the Iranian nuclear issue was held in London on May 2. Chinese Assistant Foreign Minister He Yafei attended the meeting as the representative of Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi.
Participants reiterated their commitment to the diplomatic solution. After in-depth discussions, they reached consensus on the resumption plan of the talks.
China has been upholding the international non-proliferation system and the peaceful solution of the issue through diplomatic negotiations so as to maintain peace and stability in the Middle East. This is in the interest of all parties. As a signatory party to NPT, Iran has the right for peaceful use of nuclear energy, provided that it fulfills corresponding international obligations.
China has been devoted to mediation and made unremitting efforts in this regard. Under the current situation, China hopes relevant parties to intensify diplomatic efforts and promote the early launch of the negotiations with a view to seeking a long-term proper settlement of the issue in a comprehensive way.
The US will NEVER get permission from either Russia or China or even Pakistan, to invade or bomb Iran. We must give this up. But then, McCain is desperate to bomb, bomb, bomb Iran and Hillary want to annihilate Iran in a nuclear holocaust. This is not what Obama has said so I support him over the other two. Thank you.
