Men run the world. Badly.
Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, the 4th and current Chief Executive of Hong Kong since 2017 speaks with the voice of Xi Jinping. She sounds like the new totalitarian shift in Beijing and she has been spotted as a puppet by Hong Kong’s university students protesting in the streets.
Clearly the standoff in Hong Kong is not going well. In the dispute in Hong Kong streets, there is no starting point for negotiation and nobody has spelled out specific demands. It’s just a fight for the sake of fighting although the students in the street say they want a better democracy or leave China. This follows Beijing’s draconian move to usurp the justice system in Hong Kong.

Singapore’s Economy is in a dive thanks to the US-China trade war
According to reports, Singapore’s economy is in its worst state since 2009 when it was struck by a smashing blow as America’s economy tanked over Fanny Mae and other economic fraudsters.
Russia’s Economy is weak as the country reaches for the worst weapons humankind ever possessed.
On the weekend a Russian made cruise missile using some kind of nuclear engine blew up about 500 kilometers north of Moscow at a missile test range. There was a nuclear explosion that has begun to distribute radioactive fallout.
On August 2nd and 3rd respectively the United States and then Russia withdrew from the Intermediate Nuclear Treaty INF. Since then they have been moving at breakneck speed to disrupt the world’s peace by building and distributing the worst nuclear weapons known to mankind.
Condolences to good people lost on a bad cause
Not just disappointment because their bomb broke, but Russia is experiencing the loss of scientists who had families, friends and their own communities. It’s very sad. Five specialists from the Russian federal nuclear center in Sarov (Nizhny Novgorod region) were killed following the rocket explosion at a naval test range outside the city of Severodvinsk, and will be recommended for state awards, center’s Director Valentin Kostyukov said in a speech on local television.
“The death of our staff members is a bitter loss for the nuclear center and the Rosatom state corporation. The researchers are national heroes. They were the elite of the Russian federal nuclear center and sometimes they were carrying out tests in extremely difficult conditions,” the director said. The five specialists have been recommended for state awards, he said.
Even more sad, the Kremlin says Russian missiles remain world’s best despite US developments.
“Russian developments in this area are so far considerably outpacing the level, which other countries have been able to achieve,” a presidential spokesperson said.

FPMag with several partners has formed a global member-driven women’s action group called Voices .
According to Sharon Santiago of The RINJ Foundation, “our goal is to assemble members around the world, led by the best and the brightest to promote and achieve global nuclear disarmament and demilitarization of space in concert with the UN Secretary General”.
“Our method initially,” she said, “is to support the UN Secretary General’s 5-Point Plan for nuclear disarmament plus further initiatives we (you and other members) may decide by vote. We shall challenge commitments of political candidates and government representatives on our aims for a more peaceful Earth through a viable and sustainable nuclear disarmament process and the same for the demilitarization of space.”
The world is changing rapidly. Somewhere between 12,000 and 20,000 nuclear weapons exist on Earth and we believe as a result of research that there are some in space.
Meanwhile, “the growing despotism of a malignant patriarch has put more wars and armed conflicts on this planet than ever before,” adds Santiago.
She believes the countries which have nuclear weapons are bullying those that don’t, with their nuclear bombs and economic sanctions, to prevent weaker countries from acquiring nuclear weapons.
Today Pakistan and India are nuclear armed and they are at each other’s throats according to numerous media reports.
Russia and China are at loggerheads with the United States and all three have enough bombs each to destroy the entire world. Their conflict has alarmed many people around the world and that is evident from an abundance of reportage and op-eds from ‘think-tank’ experts.
Britain under the urging of the United States is leaving the European Union (‘Brexit’) solely because it wants to sell weapons systems to places the European Union would not permit to have such weapons. Those two countries’ weapons and lust for war have put 15 million Yemenis in jeopardy.

North Korea has said it wants a seat at the table to talk about global denuclearization instead of unilateral denuclearization. That makes sense. Let’s do it.
