In this week's episode, A'ndre and Ryan speak with Michèle Flournoy, former Under Secretary of Defense for Policy during the Obama Administration, on U.S.-China strategic competition, the Taiwan question, and enhancing defense capabilities without a budget increase.  We get Michèle's take on the state of the Biden Administration's defense policy, asking her whether the Afghanistan withdrawal and the AUKUS submarine deal has dented U.S. credibility at a perilous time in great power competition. Michèle then discusses U.S.-China competition, assessing Indo-Pacific strategy, the Quad, and Xi Jinping's own leadership style. We spend a great deal of the conversation focusing in on Taiwan -- the realities of China's approach towards Taiwan, whether strategic ambiguity is ending,  the state of U.S. military support for Taiwan, and why the U.S. risks losing its edge to China in tech capabilities.  Michèle, who co-founded WestExec Advisors and the Center for a New American Security, closes out the conversation with a discussion on defense innovation and fostering technological advances in our security capabilities -- and why we can do that without another defense budget increase.

The U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan and the announcement of AUKUS — a trilateral pact between the United States, Australia, and the United Kingdom — prompted a flurry of criticism from European policymakers with one senior EU official calling for a “pause and a reset” in trans-Atlantic relations. Do the core assumptions and principles underpinning U.S. policy towards Europe need rethinking? What does each side really need from the other? How might the Biden administration build out a more affirmative agenda for Europe given its focus on Asia policy and the Indo-Pacific? On November 15, on the heels of the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) and the G-20 Summit in Europe, the Center on the United States and Europe at Brookings hosted French Minister of State for European Affairs Clément Beaune for a keynote conversation and an expert panel discussion on these topics.

After a quiet start to his presidency, United States President Joe Biden has made some recent decisive steps in engaging with Asia by selling nuclear submarines to Australia and establishing the AUKUS pact, outlining an approach to trade with China, and hosting a Quad summit at the White House, gathering with key U.S. partners in Asia. A major part of this strategy is building up alliances to offer both the region and world at large to drive ‘responsible competition' with China. With the withdrawal of the US from Afghanistan signals a step away from the wars of the past two decades, Biden now has an opportunity to focus the US on the region it is says is its highest priority, Asia.

In this episode of Bitcoin Magazine's “Fed Watch'' podcast, Christian Keroles and I sat down to give an update on Fed news and central bank activity around the world. Topics in this episode include, people at the Federal Reserve and their positions, the Fed Stability Report, Treasury curve update and inversions, the inflation narrative, ECB and BoJ updates, and of course, bitcoin. Bitcoin Day Kansas City First, Christian and I debriefed the recent Bitcoin Day event in Kansas City where I spoke about the end of the dollar system as we know it. It was a great event, with another one coming up in Sacramento early next year. I might try getting one down in Jacksonville next year as well, so be watching out for that. Fed News Next, we jump right into Fed news, starting with the resignation of Quarles. This was kind of a surprise since he had over 10 years left in his term. He has recently faced some backlash from progressive members of Congress, along with Powell, as slightly more hawkish members of the Fed who ignore MMT (modern monetary theory) nut-jobs.  This resignation has a chess move aspect to it. Brainard, who has recently been threatening to take Powell's job as Chairman, was first favored for Quarles' position as Head of Supervision. With him gone, Brainard now has an easy path to simply fill that role, leaving Powell basically uncontested for the Chairman reappointment. These moves might seem insignificant to those who are unaware of the shifting tide within the central bank elite. Most central bankers around the world are looking to MMT and CBDCs (central bank digital currencies) as a way to break out of the debt trap and deflationary environment which the world finds itself in. Powell has the most important central bank job in the world. He has been standing in the way of that dangerous agenda. In a similar fashion to a geopolitical realignment, from NATO to AUKUS, Powell appears to represent the same division, from global concerns to national, within the central bank elites. Fed Stability Report This week the Federal Reserve published their biannual Stability Report. This report is meant to increase transparency of the Fed, to show the public what they are paying attention to, and what could possibly affect their monetary policy going forward. The main highlights from the report is the Fed's warning about a rising risk to risk assets. Of course, the mainstream financial press is going to hop on that with their usual gusto. Another interest warning from the report was about Evergrande and the rising risk of contagion out of China. We've been way ahead on this, talking about this very situation for months now. We all know the horrible shape that the Chinese economy is in, and that is slowly working its way into the mainstream investor consciousness. My prediction, based on the fact that this report came at basically the same time as the taper announcement, is that the Fed is setting up a scapegoat for when they have to eventually halt or reverse course on the taper. They will blame their “policy error” on China and the sheer power of their monetary policy. It's comical. Their monetary policy literally does nothing, else we'd have no problems to worry about. US Yield Curve Next we talk about yield curves. We aren't experts on the bond market, but we know that the bond market is much smarter than we are, and much smarter than the Fed. I highlight that the 20-year and 30-year yields are still inverted, along with the 5-year and 10-year breakevens. The latter being the most inverted in history! This should tell us that all is not well with this recent market action. Inflation expectations in the future are mixed, signaling a severe retracement in the “recovery” and the CPI. The inflation narrative is going rabid. It's gotten to the point where people are making fun of the transitory stance despite all signs to the contrary. It's as if the critics haven't looked at a chart recently. But nevermind, the inflation narrative is a huge bonus for bitcoin in the eyes of investors, while at the same time, the deflationary low growth fundamentals are also great for bitcoin. CPI comes out today, which we predict will be higher than last month (but still in a slowing trend) and cause even more rabid inflation propaganda benefiting bitcoin. Global Central Bank Update By comparison, there is little news from Europe and the ECB, or Japan and the BoJ. First for the ECB; it seems as though the ECB is a few months behind the Fed and is still driving home the transitory nature of this recent CPI spike. Mind you, their headline CPI was only 3% in September, where the US's was 5%.  The Bank of Japan has even less news to report on. They are stuck with very low inflation. Their headline number is 0.2%, and less food and energy is -0.5%. This is despite promising and actually being irresponsible in the QE and spending department. The BoJ is failing so badly in getting inflation, they have to come out weekly and reaffirm their dedication to being irresponsible and attempting to hit their 2% target. Next, I asked the audience to answer a question for this episode on twitter. You have to quote the Bitcoin Magazine tweet for the episode and tag me. “If the US is exporting inflation, why are the ECB and BOJ's inflation rates so much lower than the US's, especially when they have “printed” more money relative to GDP?” Why is the relationship actually inverse? The more a central bank seems to expand their balance sheet, the lower the inflation, even then the US is supposedly exporting inflation with the highest trade deficit ever. The best answer wins a copy of the Bitcoin Dictionary. We wrap up the show by discussing bitcoin in the context of what we are seeing out there in macro. How bitcoin is a source of growth for all who adopt it. We touch on many important topics in this last minute rip, like velocity of money, bitcoin vs traditional interest rates, surging energy prices, ESG shooting itself in the foot, and layer two fee dynamics with the base layer.

Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne is finishing up a four-nation tour of Southeast Asia this week, having begun her trip in Malaysia before moving on to Cambodia, Vietnam and finally Indonesia. A main goal of the visit is to conduct follow-up talks after Canberra agreed in late October on a new “comprehensive strategic partnership” with the main regional bloc, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. Another prominent item on Payne's agenda is to seek understanding from ASEAN members for Australia's three-way defense partnership with the U.S. and the U.K., which was just announced in September. Known as AUKUS, the pact calls for Australia to deploy nuclear-propelled attack submarines with British and American assistance. This week on the Trend Lines podcast, Susannah Patton, a research fellow in the Foreign Policy and Defense Program at the University of Sydney's United States Studies Center, joins WPR's Elliot Waldman to discuss the mixed reception of AUKUS in Southeast Asia and how ASEAN is positioning itself amid rising tensions between China on one hand, and the U.S. and its allies on the other.

Allan and Darren cannot resist focusing on the escalated and seemingly personal spat between Australian PM Scott Morrison and French President Emmanuel Macron over Australia's cancellation of the French submarine contract, then followed by the launch of AUKUS. During Morrison's recent international trip, Macron called him a liar, to which the Australian side responded by leaking details of private text messages the French president had sent the PM just days prior to the announcement. In Morrison's words: “claims were made, claims were refuted”. Who is in the right/wrong here? Stepping back, what is the role of honesty and integrity, or truth and trust, in international diplomacy? How much does it matter? Along the way, Darren finds the temptation to develop a potted academic theory of a “Morrison doctrine” too strong to pass up. Let the debate begin!

With a record number of Chinese fighters flying sorties in Taiwan's air defence zone in October, and rhetoric on all sides becoming more heated, many observers say the past few weeks have been the most tense in the region for decades. How serious is the prospect of an attempt by Beijing to take back the island that it has claimed since 1949 – and would an attack draw the US into a major international conflict?.

Guest: Peter Lee aka @chinahand. As Peter said “it's been a pretty good week for the chinahawks.” In fact, a lot of good weeks lately. We talk about the escalation of tensions with China over Taiwan, the US-led “Asian NATO”l ships sailing through the Taiwan strait and in the South China sea, Chinese military exercises scrambling jets near Taiwan, the issue of Taiwan independence and US defense, the political situation and the prospects for war to break out and more. In a bonus episode I ask Peter what triggered Xi JInping's crackdown in China and what caused the sudden shift in relations between the US and China, the real estate crisis and why Chinese billionaires had been allowed to thrive for so long.

Australia, the UK and the US have announced a historic security agreement, dubbed ‘AUKUS', in response to regional security concerns about China's rising power and influence in the Indo-Pacific. Under the deal, Australia will build nuclear-powered submarines for the first time, using technology provided by the United States. It also signals to a greater presence of the three powers in the region with a focus on military and technological capabilities, including in long-range weapons, cyber and undersea technologies. How do the three states see AUKUS as contributing to regional security? How have regional states responded to this agreement? And what are the broader implications of Australia's pursuit of nuclear-powered submarines? Panel: Dr Anna Powles (Senior Lecturer in Security Studies at Massey University, New Zealand) Associate Professor Maria Rost Rublee (Politics and International Relations, Monash University) Professor Peter Dean (Director, Defence and Security Institute, University of Western Australia) Natalie Sambhi (Executive Director, Verve Research) Dr Rebecca Strating (Executive Director, La Trobe Asia, La Trobe University)(Chair) Recorded on 27 October, 2021.

“France does not know it, but we are at war with America. It's a permanent war, an economic war, one seemingly without deaths and yet a war to death.” This quote from former French President François Mitterrand illustrates the ancestral gallic defiance toward the US “hyperpower,” one that continues to inform French strategic thinking. So when the US entered secret negotiations with Australia and the UK to launch the AUKUS defense partnership—thus scuttling France's 90-billion dollar submarine contract with Australia—Mitterrand's warnings turned prophetic. Even the usually diplomatic Minister for Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves le Drian spoke of “a stab in the back.” This extraordinary diplomatic coup de théâtre happened amidst an ongoing conversation on the concept of European strategic autonomy, a topic Uncommon Decency covered in depth last year. Can the EU become a geopolitical actor in its own right, and not just a geopolitical playing field for the great powers of the 21st century? Following the events in Afghanistan and Australia, we take stock of where this conversation is headed—and whether the transatlantic relationship has suffered as a result—with The Economist's Sophie Pedder and the Atlantic Council's Benjamin Haddad.

Gerald Horne, professor of history at the University of Houston, author, historian, and researcher, joins us to discuss the Sudan coup. The African nation of Sudan is in chaos after a military coup that has many casting a suspicious eye towards the US empire. Creating further suspicion, Israeli officials have voiced support for the extra democratic move in a recent interview. Marjorie Cohn, professor of law at the Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego, joins us to discuss Julian Assange. Dr. Cohn argues that the UK high court has no option other than to drop the charges and release the beleaguered journalist in light of recent information regarding an assassination plot by US intelligence leaders. James Carey, editor/co-owner at Geopoliticsalert.com, joins us to discuss Afghanistan. Zalmay Khalilzad served as the ambassador to Afghanistan and was also involved in the withdrawal negotiations. Khalilzad has opened up in a recent interview to give his side of the story.Dr. Ken Hammond, professor of East Asian and global history at New Mexico State University and activist with Pivot for Peace, joins us to discuss China. China has countered Biden's Taiwan measures and called out the US empire's hypocrisy by signing a belt and road-related economic deal with Cuba. Biden's "rules-based order" is being exposed as a fraud. The US continues to make military and economic maneuvers on the borders of Russia and China while arguing that the entire Western hemisphere is under the imperial umbrella of its empire. John Kiriakou, journalist, author, and Host of The Back Story, joins us to discuss the Facebook whistleblower. Recent information that has been unearthed is exposing the so-called Facebook whistleblower as an intelligence operative bent on supporting the US empire's desire to impose complete control over social media. Frances Haugen is represented by US intelligence insiders and claims to have worked for a Facebook unit that is staffed by former intelligence operatives. Jack Rasmus, professor in economics and politics at St. Mary's College in California, joins us to discuss the US economy. Dr. Jack argues that a financial transaction tax is not only a good idea but desperately needed to revive the US economy and pay for the proposed build-back better legislation. He says that a minimal tax would create 2.4 trillion dollars within the first five years.Scott Ritter, former UN weapon inspector in Iraq, joins us to discuss US foreign policy. An article in the American Conservative magazine poses the question as to whether the threats and bluster of the Biden administration is going to lead the US empire into a disastrous war. As is normally the case, the US is again blaming Iran-related groups for an attack on an illegal military base in Syria.Dan Lazare, investigative journalist and author of "America's Undeclared War," joins us to discuss NATO. NATO has deteriorated into a theatre of the absurd. Ridiculous claims against Russia have now been joined by a chorus of anti-China rhetoric as some elements in the rapidly fracturing coalition seek to join the US empire in a misguided shift to include the Asian power in their quixotic crusade.
