SoT Ep 25 – Jeff Brown: The Rot Of Empire

Think about it guys, with all the shenanigans going in Europe with melted gold and phantom gold in the United States, the [Hong Kong] jewelers probably feel like their gold is safer in China than they do anyplace else.  – Jeff Brown, in reference to China’s first private depository (1500 metric tonnes) right across the border from Hong Kong

The Shadow of Truth hosted a special guest, Jeff Brown, who has been living in China for the last 5 years and for a total of 12 years.  He wrote a book called “44 Days Backpacking in China:  The Middle Kingdom in the 21st Century, with the United States, Europe and the Fate of the World in Its Looking Glass.”  He also writes a weekly column, “Reflections on Sinoland – Reporting from the Belly of the New Century Beast”  (44Days link).   He’s also writing Xi JinPing’s (General Secretary of the Communist Party, President of China) diaries.

One of the topics we discuss is the location of the main gold vault of China’s Central Bank – the “Ft. Knox” of China.  We also chat about the theory that “behind the scenes” the U.S. and China are in collaboration on planning the New World Order.   Jeff resoundingly dispels this view:

The Chinese don’t like us – I’m writing Xi JinPing’s diaries – I read all this stuff in Chinese – they don’t like us.  – Jeff Brown, Shadow of Truth

Jeff is a wealth of knowledge in terms of understanding the context of China’s transformation into a global economic power.  As we all know, it is becoming exceedingly difficult to get truthful reporting on anything from U.S. media about China.  Jeff will be our “eyes and ears” on the ground in Beijing.  He will be able to pull back the western propaganda and expose the real China.

This is a fascinating interview from someone who will really open your eyes about is going on in China:  “we are now in the Xi era and he is everywhere.   He is in Kazakhstan this week, he is in Belarus, he is in Moscow…he was just in Indonesia and Pakistan.  Modi is coming from India after Xi gets back from Moscow for the WW2 commemeration…there’s Chinese ships are in the Black Sea docking at ports in Russia…the west has no answer for Xi JinPing.”

  1. I lament what has become of America. What countries has China or Russia attacked in the last 20 years? America needs to ditch the empire and send the neoconservatives to the gallows. That may sound harsh but these dirt bags are guilty by Nuremberg war crimes standards and they should be executed.

  2. Interesting guest – thank you.

    I appreciate that China hates us so perhaps in his next interview Jeff can talk about how/why Nixon/Rockefeller opened up China – i.e., where would China be today if they didn’t have “our” manufacturing?

    Do they think we’re complete idiots for handing them the entire cookie jar?

    1. We will be having him on quite a bit. I think you’ll find that the perception of what has occurred in China vs. the reality is quite different. Re: your Rockefeller info. What is your source? Western history books and media accounts? Consider the source.

      The west, and specifically the U.S., has arrogantly conducted its affairs since WW2 as if only the west matters. Meanwhile, China – and now Russia – has been building itself slowly and patiently to put itself in position to seize global leadership.

      Perhaps nothing personifies the rot and corruption and hubris of the west MORE than Hillary Clinton.

  3. Actually I meant Kissinger – not Rockefeller – but I take your point about sources and I fully agree with the assessment of HC.

    What would be a good source to understand the differences between the perception and reality of what occurred in China?

    1. Search for information sources not connected to western influence. We’ll be interviewing Jeff Brown a lot more.

  4. “The Chinese don’t like us – I’m writing Xi JinPing’s diaries – I read all this stuff in Chinese – they don’t like us. – Jeff Brown, Shadow of Truth”

    I would go further to say that the Chinese, Russians et. al. HATE us. Not liking us is too soft a sell me thinks.

  5. Thank you Rory and Dave, for a great show. China is just too important, actually always has been, to be ignored on the world’s 21st century stage. I am not saying that the Chinese government is angelic. All governments are inherently power hungry and evil. But after 4,000 years of continuous history, to understand China, you must be able to accept alternative definitions of democracy, rule of law, society and culture. All Xi Jinping and every Chinese leader since 1949 have said and are saying is, “We choose to develop our society, economy and culture based on Chinese terms, not on Western notions. And we resent you trying to shove your versions down our throats”. I invite Rory’s and Dave’s fans to learn more about China, in audio and writing, at Looking forward to the next show with Rory and Dave soon! Jeff in Beijing.

    1. Thanks for the comment Jeff. The feedback we’re getting on the video is off the charts so far. Can’t wait for our next podcast session.
