TRADE WAR: TTIP and The Global Agenda

Isolating the UK from trade with Russia and the US means they become a groveling dependent of the EU.

Obama openly declared in 2016 that there was absolutely no way that the US would open trade with the UK because the EU took precedence.

EU Council President, Donald Tusk, believes this is the perfect time to reintroduce TTIP claiming that it will solve all the tariff issues within the EU, UK and US…

TTIP is the largest ever trade initiative ever negotiated or proposed – and its contents are completely ‘classified’ we the public have no right to know what it involves, we are told how great it will be and how economically productive. What we do know comes from leaked documents which establish as a goal, universalism. This would mean that the US would effectively become an EU state subject to EU laws, regulations, banking and insurance restrictions at the discretion of a universal EU appointed Tribunal.

One of the more threatening aspects of TTIP is that it gives corporations power over nations. A corporation could sue a nation for failing to perform according to the corporate standards. As such, nations and their governments would be squeezed out and corporate CEO’s would become absolute powers.

In 1933, Musolini declared that he envisioned a corporatism world in which the state governments ‘serve the corporations’.   Renamed Globalization, the concept was later re-introduced by Democrat, George Ball, who claimed that nation states and sovereignty were obsolete. A founding member of the Bilderberg Group, Ball and Rockefeller have been active proponents of creating this new corporate sovereign rule.

TTIP fills this Communist agenda.

Most of the staid countries within the EU are aligned with the Socialist Party.   A shift by the Eastern Bloc toward a more nationalistic view has been infesting the landscape and disrupting the rule of order.   Alienating the UK from trade partners including Russia and the US would have the effect of hitting them where it most hurts in BREXIT and bringing them to their proverbial knees – once again.

Macron’s “En Marche” party was supposedly inspired by Obama, but that would mean that Obama was more than a puppet. In fact, the corporate elites have been behind Italy’s Five Star Movement as well as En Marche as they devised a methodology of moving from Socialism to Communism through Media propaganda.   Thus the New Centrist, is really Communism in disguise.

Before Macron was a “Centrist” he was a Socialist.   Before Merkel was a Democrat, she was a Socialist.   Italy, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Norway, and Switzerland are entirely Socialist.   Giving way to the Rand philosophy of Corporatism is a natural evolution.

In the meantime, Soros has made a fervent call to the EU to regulate social media content, and censor dissenting views… although in his terms it is to “fight populism”.   But wait! The Definition of Populism is: A political philosophy to support the rights and power of the people in their struggle against privilege elite.  

And no one noticed. Censorship on a multinational level is in line with Communism.

BREXIT gave rise to multi-level problems with trade, communism, and the fight against sovereignty.   Trump aggravated the agenda.   Putin was already considered an enemy of the globalization movement when he issued an arrest warrant for Soros and banned all his NGO’s from Russia.

Reeling in each country meant isolating them from trade. Trade was the tool.

So, has Trump inadvertently leaped on the trade band wagon – or is he establishing his own negotiating tactics.

In the end, the script is rather well written.   And the players perfectly cloned. But there are a few good men… and I think I’ll place my trust in them.

Obamacare Healthcare: Breakeven for Insurers!

The Federalist has released a statement that Obamacare insurers are ‘finally’ going to make a profit… because they can ‘finally’ charge premiums that sustain their expenditures. WOW!   Poor babies…

So who are these ‘poor babies’?

Anthem President Gail Boudreaux made $2.2 million, including stock awards, after working 2 months in 2017 (November and December).   The previous CEO stayed on through May and only made $26.4 million in ‘realized pay’.

Molina Healthcare’s new CEO, Zubretsky, who also started in November faired quite a bit better making $19.7 million which included a ‘sign-on bonus’.

Cigna CEO took home $43.9 million including stock gains. Humana CEO had realized pay of $34.2 million.   United has yet to release the data, but figures have fluctuated to as high as $124.8 million.   Kaiser and Blue cross are up for grabs…

As a nonprofit, Kaiser reported Net Income of $3.1 billion in 2016.   United Healthcare reported Net Income $10.82 billion in 2017. And Anthem Blue Cross came in at $2.47 billion Net Income for 2016.

So what the hey?   How is it that these companies are supposedly ‘just now’ making a profit, because that’s a lot of non-profit profit and compensation flying around!

In a world where all healthcare premiums are equal, these CEO’s should be paying monthly premiums of roughly $212,500 to $1,768,000 – conservatively.   Maybe then, they would feel the ‘Burn’…   Because, I don’t think they have a freakin’ clue.

Apparently, this Federalist author didn’t do the math because when I research the Net Income of United Healthcare, it has increased 137% since 2008.   And the CEO’s are living large on 25% increases, 46% increases, and 60% increases in total payout.   So tell me again how the ‘insurers’ are just now breaking even under Obamacare?

Poor babies.

As a comparison, physician salaries and compensation ranges between about $200,000 and $500,000 depending on the specialty – and can obviously be far greater if the physician has spiffs, patents, etc…   But it is still a very far cry from the CEO compensation of ‘Health Insurers’.   Poor babies.

In fact, the equalized monthly healthcare premiums of the CEO’s outstrips the total wage base of physicians! So how is it that these corporations are just now making a profit when in fact they have always made exceptional profits while boasting exceptional wages for the CEO’s and Executives?

It’s a magic act, something like the Wizard of Oz wherein the smoke and blubbering of the media exalts a story that has absolutely no basis in fact.   Unless, we are exalting the “New Math” wherein 2+2 = 1… or 6… or 3, because there is no ‘correct’ answer, because then someone might cry because they were wrong – and opinion over-rules fact, and…

So if Warren Buffet has reported adjusted gross income of $63 million, and we adjust for his offshore accounts let’s bump that to $200 million, then his health insurance liability should be $2,833,333 per Month!   His Income Tax liability should then be 37% or $6,166,666 – per month!   Sounds fair – right? 

Do you think the ‘health insurer’ would lower its monthly premium if it was income based?   I think there would be a LOT of pressure, and a massive change.   Imagine!   

Germany – Integration of Muslims and Jews

Germany allowed 1 million Muslims to immigrate into their country as the escalation of war has devastated African and Middle Eastern states.   Those numbers added to the internal population of about 3.7 million. By contrast, Germany is home to roughly 120,000 Jews.   And anti-Semitism has, not surprisingly escalated. In 2016, Germany ‘recorded’ 1468 anti-Semitic attacks. In one university poll, 62% of the Jews reported that they face antagonistic anti-Semitic attacks – daily. But the media prefers to target the AfD for rhetoric, despite the fact that they have a paltry membership of just 29,000.  

Merkel’s response is to require school youth to make a trip to the Nazi camps a mandatory curriculum. But most Muslim refugees aren’t integrated into the school system, so how will this solve anything?

Worse, she is proposing building a synagogue in the middle of Berlin’s most prevalent Muslim neighborhood!   Help me here!

Hate Speech.

In the midst of these measures, there are increasing issues with Islamaphobia in Germany that Merkel sees as a direct correlation with the rise of – AfD, all 29,000 members comprising; .6% of the Muslim population in Germany, or .03% of the total population of Germany.

If Muslims wanted to integrate they wouldn’t live in Muslim districts.  

When immigrants come to ‘any’ country, their first line of defense is to group together where they find a commonality, a language, a shared culture.   Cities across the world have created Polish districts, Chinatowns, Irish districts, Muslim districts, German districts, black neighborhoods, etc… It is normal.   Integration is not.   Christians like to befriend other Christians.   Democrats routinely drop Republican friends when they discover their affiliation.   Couples alienate divorcees.

I can attest to some of the above personally.

Syrian orphan children cannot be adopted outside of Muslim families. Integration is not permitted.

There are by far more examples of why it doesn’t work than when it has worked.

Germany now stands at the forefront of hate speech laws.  

The origin of hate speech laws is unfortunately, forgotten. Having its core in Communism, the laws were designed to curb freedom of speech so as to protect the government from any dissent.   But Germany seems to have conveniently forgotten this history lesson and imposed these laws to the extent that US citizens are barred from entry into the country due to their blog content.

But Germany isn’t content with simply barring entry to individuals, they have barred social media content that they deem in “their opinion” is not appropriate.   As such, they have instituted Communist Laws and Agendas similar to “Sharia Law”.

And Germany is not alone.

The UK has a history of barring activists from entering their borders (Pamela Geller, Martin Sellner, and Lauren Southern), although they embrace refugees who commit egregious and violent crimes.   And still, both Germany and the UK refuse to criminalize these refugees telling their polizi to abstain for fear of mediaslamation… errr, defamation…

Hate speech does exist, its called bullying in our education system. All three of my sons were bullied in the public school system. Most school shooters were bullied in their public school system.   But if you take away the gun from the bullied, will he feel better, will he/she feel less bullied? Will they cross the line in another way?

Islam belongs in Islam.   Jewish people hang with Jewish people.   Atheists hang with atheists.   It is just the way it is – for the most part.   There are exceptions, but they are few.   Forcing people upon people is NOT the solution.   It is government control bordering on Communism.   And personally, I ain’t a fan…

UK Sanctions Russia – Russia Assassinating Spies? Or Russian Mafia?

Once again the complete denouncement of basic law is being manipulated in the UK, with France, Germany and the US jumping onboard. Guilty – until proven innocent.

Imagine if this became the new common justice system for all crimes, all criminals?   It is reminiscent of Sharia Law in which a woman who is raped is considered the criminal and not the victim and is thus punished according to their judicial system – caning, torture, jail, and possibly death.   In circumventing law, the UK is adopting this modicum and Parliament jeers anything less. A lynch mob reminiscent of public hangings or – beheadings.

A double agent and his daughter are subjected to a nerve gas poisoning in Salisbury England and because this particular form of nerve gas was first manufactured in the Soviet Union 30 years ago, circumstantial evidence is the final verdict without a trial, without a court.   To date, the UK has refused to send samples of the poison to Russia for analysis, which would also appear to be odd, unless they didn’t have such a sample.

But apparently, even that isn’t the real story. The nerve agent isn’t the pure Novochok manufactured in the Soviet Union in the 1980’s, in fact it is a hybrid, less potent, and somewhat altered, if not in a manner that was considered, sloppy. Hardly the finesse of a Russian government, more of the botched concoction of a third party…

After the Soviet Union collapsed, Jewish immigrants and former soviet FSB agents banned together to form the Russian Mafia. They grew massively planting seeds in Bulgaria, Ukraine, Serbia and other eastern bloc countries. Ultimately they also infested Israel where they are a formidable presence today.   The mafia in these countries have since infiltrated the US, UK, Canada, Mexico, Australia and much of South America. Large and in charge – they had obtained control of the assets that were once property of the USSR – including chemical weapons.

But the complete formula for making Novochok could never be completely duplicated and thus hybrids were created – by eastern Blocs and purportedly the US.

When Alexander Litvinenko was murdered, he was investigating a connection between Spanish links and the Russian Mafia. As a former FSB agent himself, he had accused the Soviet regime of massive corruption and ties to the Russia Mafia under Boris Yeltsin. Yeltsin was forced to resign under pressure from civilian protests for his corrupt regime. By then the Russian Mafia was firmly entrenched.

Both Putin’s government and the US FBI have collaborated to eradicate the hold the mafia has had over Russia. Multiple arrests of Mafia bosses have helped to purge it’s rein somewhat, but it remains the largest, deadliest enemy the world has today controlling human trafficking, drug smuggling, corporate theft, fraud, etc…

They are also the main perpetrator in global assassinations.

What is going on? Why is the UK targeting Russia? It seems reminiscent in arming the rebel factions of Al-Nusra in Syria…

The only other case that the media is frequenting in their ‘factoid’ is that of Alexandre Litvenenko, a double agent who was poisoned using radioactive polonium in 2006. At the time of his poisoning he was investigating a link between Spaniards and the Russian Mafia.   So why would the UK assume Putin was to blame when the Russian Mafia and Spanish were the main target of Litvinenko’s inquest?

Perhaps Theresa May’s pressure is not coming so much from MP’s as from the Russian Mafia itself as they have setup shop in the UK and most likely have quite a bit of ‘garbage’ on politicians.

Still, a number of media outlets have raised the ante of agents killed in the UK by “the Russian Government”, claiming upwards of thirteen:

Georgi Markov – he was actually a Bulgarian dissident murdered by a pellet fired from an umbrella (sounds like The Avengers to me). The suspect was Francesco Guillino, a Dane of Italian heritage who was a petty thief before being indoctrinated as a secret agent of the “West”. Guillino maintains a life in the EU.

Brerezovsky – he capitalized on the chaos of privatization of property after the fall of the USSR and during the rise and flourish of the Russian Mafia.   He was in the inner circle of the corruption of the Yeltsin empire (Russian Mafia?) and is said to be worth over $5 billion.   Given the time frame, it would be logical that Brerezovosky was also heavily involved with the Russian Mafia. He was instrumental in Yeltsin’s ousting of Alexander Korzhakov who claimed that he and his Communist operatives from the former USSR were the true governors of Russia and Yeltsin was a pawn.   Seeking asylum in the UK, he was backed by M-16. After a lost trial in which he sought remuneration of $3 billion, he was found hung.

Scott Young – connected to Brerezovsky who was connected to Litvinenko, was also targeted by the Russian mafia.   Interestingly, he was also a client of Mossack Fonseca, aka, The Panama Paper Caper, in which he hid over $400 million in funds from his divorcing wife. As a result of this hidden asset fraud he was sentenced to jail, became somewhat sociopathic, and was pushed off the balcony of his flat shortly after his release.   The assumption was that because he was connected to Brerezovsky, he was a victim of Putin.

There are now over 13 Mafia groups across the globe including Israel, Canada, US, Italy, Serbia, Bulgaria, Albania, Macedonia, Romania and Turkey.

With Theresa May leading the pack of sanctions, the logic of targeting Russia and Putin becomes highly questionable.   Russians own quite a bit or real estate in the UK.   Estimates indicate that Russian ownership accounts for roughly 7-8% of all property. The exact number is impossible to calculate because most ownership of property in the UK is done through opaque offshore accounts in which the real owner of record is virtually impossible to locate.

If Theresa May sanctions Russia further and attempts to freeze assets, a mass exodus could tank London real estate… unless of course, the Saudis are waiting in the wings, cash in hand…

Given Theresa Mays recent dealing with the Saudis for more weapons, could London real estate be the blackmail/othersideofthecoin?   Tit for tat?

Jeremy Corbyn has attempted to make these points, only to be met with jeers and admonitions from both Boris Johnson and Theresa May.   And it would appear that Boris Johnson is leading the pack of wolves/MP’s in their bid to derail Russia once again.

Given that May has refused to release samples of the nerve toxin, refused to share the evidence that she is using to base her claims upon, and has moved so radically so quickly, it appears that an agenda is manipulating the truth quite massively. The speed with which this is being done would indicate there is something else that will be dropped on the global citizens quite soon. Something rather formidable, I would venture…

Macron Trade Deal Bust?

Macron is trying to eek out a new trade relationship with India claiming that the exodus of the UK means France will be the winner of the EU. But apparently he forgot to ask Merkel, because behind the UK at $8.6 billion, Germany ranks second at $7.2 billion in 2016 for the EU.   In addition, the UK provides a huge surplus of trade to India which I imagine they will not want to put at risk.   By contrast, China represents their biggest deficit at $51.6 billion.   The largest export items from China to India include: electronic equipment, machinery, furniture, and apparel.  

Problem? Is France even competitive?

India has been ramping up its nuclear program recently, including a push to build 10 new reactors with its inked partner – Russia. Macron is beeming after a handshake to expedite the construction of one nuclear facility in Jaitpur, which is situated on a seismic zone… Oops!  Villagers are not too happy about being forced to hand over their land to the Indian government for this project especially after the catastrophic meltdown at the Japanese facility in 2011.

France has also asked India to support them militarily given India currently has the largest military manpower in the world, and France is more than happy to continue to provide more fighter jets to counter the threat from China in the Indian Ocean. At the center of the India/China dispute is an area that borders Bhouton, India and China, Doklam. China and Bhouton each claim the area belongs to them and historically, like everything else, it is complicated and unclear/muddy. India claims they are acting on behalf of Bhouton in fighting China. And Bhouton recently declared they no longer were giving India the right to negotiate on their behalf.

But India isn’t quite willing to let it go.

Doklam is a notable trade route that was exploited by the British when they occupied parts of India in the 19th century.

France is gearing itself up for a trade war, but can it compete with China? Easy answer – No.   Instead, what they are doing is ramping up tensions between the two with a military antagonist.

January, Macron was in China wooing president Jinping with promises of ramping up trade between the two and putting on the table French wine, cheese, meats, and the Airbus for which sales have been less than robust.

Economists have conjectured that Macron’s China visit was about deriding Trump and the US as benign and lost trading partners for which he, Macron, was ready, willing and able to fill. But Macron was always a big fan of Xi Jinping, in fact last August, he was adamantly anti-China trade due to the significant deficit France incurred.

The EU trade deficit with China was $200 billion last year. The power that China wields in trade is the weapon of choice.   In 2016, China’s military spending was roughly $146 billion.   Despite increases in spending since 1980, the budget as a percentage of GNP has declined sharply to a mere 1% or about 1/3 of the US although China’s has significantly larger active personnel.

While the US has plundered its funds for the purpose of warring other countries, China has behaved liked a tortoise slowly enriching itself via trade.

If Macron was serious before, or serious now, it is unknown.   Given the derision between the EU and the US, the EU and Russia, and the EU and China, they are left to pick.   And for now, the pickings seem to be slim.

As for the US: The fastest growing import is pharmaceuticals. The main suppliers include: Ireland, India, Germany and France.   But the top $$$ import is electronic equipment from: China, Mexico, Japan, and South Korea leading the market. If our trading ‘allies’ really wanted to inch out China, they would be offering discounts to curb those deficits.   If the US really wanted to hit China, they would put tariffs on Electronic Equipment and Machinery.

FYI:   The value of Mexico’s imports of electronic equipment and machinery to the US is roughly half of that of China – yet Mexico remains rife in poverty…

US Trade Deficits: A Tariff Equalizer

While the EU is blistering as they attempt to retaliate against Trump’s steel and aluminum tariffs, they are now attempting to target peanut butter and orange juice.   But the trade war isn’t simply the US vs the EU, it is also the EU against the UK!   However, the commodities their economic experts target is rather odd; Brazil accounts for 50% of all global orange juice. US production is in a downward spiral, has been for years, exasperated recently by Florida crops destroyed by Hurricane Irma and – exports are “flat”.   Which means the tariff on orange juice is worth $0.00.  

US peanut butter export partners include Canada, Mexico, Europe and Japan. The European consumers are concentrated in The Netherlands, the UK, Germany and Spain.   Unlike other European countries, The Netherlands top export partners include the UK and the US with Germany being the number one destination.   In 2016, Spain’s highest trade surplus partner was the UK at $8.2 billion, an increase of 3,014%.

The EU has already initiated a trade war with the UK using BREXIT as blackmail.   However, in their tit-for-tat plundering, it would appear they haven’t considered the consequences to countries in the EU other than Germany and France. Given they are the fundamental leaders of the EU decision making schematic, they don’t appear to be making wise choices.

Currently, the UK’s largest trading partner is the EU, with the US coming in a close second. If the EU cuts off the UK and imposes tariffs, the US is calmly waiting in the shadows ready to pick up any slack.   While the EU already slaps a 10% tariff on the import of US automobiles, by contrast, German automobiles are charged an import duty of just 2.5%. The hypocrisy of the German government and by default the EU Commission is beyond comprehension.

It would seem that the EU and Germany are playing a game of chicken without realizing their engine is out of gas.

In 2016, 54% of UK imports came from within EU countries.   If the EU hardlines trade, the UK will slowly shift partners. Currently the largest trade partners include: Germany, Spain and The Netherlands (the same countries that like all the US peanut butter…weird).

While the EU has been considered an ‘emerging superpower’ over the last decade, its share of the global economy has been steadily declining. Add to the fray the growing welfare as a result of refugee and immigration policies, the demand that the EU fund their own military, and Economic policy decisions now seem to be playing a game of chicken without a car…

And the media is at the wheel.

The EU Commission has grown into a Fat Walrus with a budget closing in on $160 billion Euro’s and most assuredly rising. Taxing, penalizing, overseeing, demanding, and fining seem to be their role.   Air pollution is a problem in the EU and despite targets being established in 2005 and 2010, 23 of 28 countries don’t meet the goals.   It’s a joke.

Sanctions on member states not meeting ‘refugee quotas’ was another EU brainchild that has backfired.

And yet, we continue to forget the sage fairy tale that recounts the race between the tortoise and the hare.   While the EU Commission has stated that a) this has been in the air for some time, and b) they will retaliate, and c) they will take this to the WTO, retaliation is not a defense recognized by most courts…  

The US trade deficit in goods is $811 billion, with the largest categories being commercial aircraft, automobiles, and food. The largest deficits were earned with China, Japan, Mexico and Germany.  Germany imports autos, aircraft and pharmaceuticals, while it exports autos, industrial machinery and medicine.   China charges a 25% tariff on US imports of automobiles.

For the Democrats and the GOP to gasp at the horror of equalizing tariffs, they would seem to have ulterior motives that don’t include the prosperity of the US.   Most recently, Trump announced that his goal was to create just that – a direct constant equalizing of all tariffs – thereby eliminating ‘inequality’ – the same catch-all phrase employed by Democrats about – everything Democrat…

But after all the hrumphing and blubbering and demanding, it looks as though the EU, Japan and Australia are begging for their own exemptions.   Bottom line? Trump is looking to close the trade deficits – China, Japan and Germany – it is now your call.

British Double Agent Poisoned by Russia?

Another Russian spy story has emerged with the media using the event as fodder for a James Bond movie replete with evil Russians, poison, vendetta’s, and treason that isn’t treason because treason is only treason when it is any western country, not when it is in – Russia.

An interesting split.

The propaganda surrounds a double agent who worked for M16 and Russian intelligence in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Having been swapped out in 2010 under the Obama administration for Russians held in the US, the agent paid cash for a house in Salisbury under his real name and led a rather ‘ordinary’ retired life.   Supposedly.

He was found in the park with his estranged daughter, Yulia, who resides in Russia, both seemingly poisoned. The UK intelligence division has claimed the agent used was a nerve gas and are looking into their belief that Putin called the hit.

Two oddities appear quite glaring:   1) Putin is not an idiot. Why would he jeopardize his candidacy for President less than 2 weeks before the election when the traitor has lived leisurely and openly in Salisbury for 7 years?   2)   The Guardian has revealed that the Russian double agent was friends with ‘someone’ connected to Fusion GPS and the Faked Trump Dossier.

What we do know is that Clinton was the frontrunner in the botched fake dossier, and blames her election loss on everyone – including Putin.   Sabotaging the election with attempted murder is more in line with the tactics employed by those responsible for the murder of Seth Rich…   Or those responsible for election rigging, busing in illegals, having voters vote twice, those guys.

It will be interesting to note how quickly UK police and M16 work to solve this case and directly implicate Putin, all the while they still seem unable to solve the ongoing investigation into the sexual assault of hundreds of thousands of children during the 1980’s by politicians, entertainers and sports figures…

So here is the ‘evidence’: the daughter has been estranged at least since her father’s imprisonment in 2006. Suddenly she shows up in Salisbury and she and her father are poisoned. Skripal was considered friendly given he said ‘hello’ if you walked past him. Many people came and went from his residence, according to neighbors. He drove a BMW, and paid cash for his residence in Salisbury shortly after he was traded in the spy exchange 2010. During his double agent tenure, he gave up a number of undercover Russian agents to the Brits. He was ultimately accused and sentenced for treason in Russia for his double agent status in 2006.  And newly stated, ‘he was friends with some unnamed person who worked for Fusion GPS’.

The facts are not uncontested that he was a double agent who shoved a number of his Comrads under the bus.

The UK is not without its very odd history in which M16 agents are found dead and routinely m16 either denies they were agents, and/or recreates the scene of death to promote a bizarre sexual escapade gone bad.   In fact, there are 17 such cases that remain outstanding despite the intelligence community being oh so very – intelligent.   Apparently, that intelligence does not transfer to these bizarre deaths given that M16 may be either involved or in collusion: Gareth Williams found inside a gym bag – was ruled a sexcapade. Jonathon Moyle was found hanging naked in a wardrobe with a pillowcase over his head – was ruled a sexcapade. Stephen Milligan who was found dressed in suspenders and tied to a chair with an electric cord around his neck – a sexcapade.   James Rusbridger found wearing a chemical suit and gas mask hanging from a beam in his own home – sexual strangulation. Nicholas Hudson was found wearing a bra and a nightie – a sexcapade. Kevin Allen, Steven Drinkwater, the spies who came in from the cold of the UK turned up dead.

There was no inquest. There was no intelligence gathering. There were never any arrests or inquiries or much of anything despite these men giving their lives for their service…

In 1916 in the UK, “fifteen” participants in the Easter Rising in Ireland were shot by firing squad for treason.

The Spy Business is rife with treason, double agents, corruption, murder, assassination, etc… from every country, across the globe.   It is not the James Bond persona of the movies, it is a commitment in which you and your family are subject to the wrath of your government.

Was Russia and by default Putin involved in the recent Sarin gas poisoning of Sergei Skripal?   Sarin is stockpiled by the US and Russia although it is believed to be in the hands of Iraq, Egypt, Iran, Libya, North Korea and Syria.   If a person is exposed and survives for several hours afterward, they will likely recover from the poisoning.   There are two antidotes available. Exposure is most often caused by inhalation, although skin contact is also possible.

In order for Sergei and his daughter to be poisoned, the inhalation would be via vapor outdoors. Given that the vapors are highly toxic, if a person would administer such, they would have to be wearing a gas mask to protect themselves from absorbing the fumes.   A person walking in a park with a gas mask would be rather noticeable – as far as suspects go…

Once again, the rhetoric is more like Swiss cheese and British porridge, full of holes and lumpy.  

But the aim is quite obvious.   Interfere in the Russia elections…

Italy Election – The New One Party System?

Angela Merkel has now served as Chancellor of Germany since 2005, having been re-elected September 2017 for an additional four year term.   That would mean she is now serving her ‘fourth’ term!   Despite being elected in September, six months later she has still failed to appoint a new Cabinet.   Her initial debut was based on ideologies that seem to have been reshuffled over the years, specifically in 2010 when her power and influence over the EU began to be noticed and corralled by the Rothschild/Soros cabal.

The CDU Party to which Merkel belongs was initially formed as an amalgamation of Nazi collaborators, liberal elitists, Socialist Marxists and nationalist parties within the state.   It was created after WWII with the oversight of the UK and the US deciding its structure and leaders. The concept was to integrate all views into one driving force of power given each had an equal and viable political appeal.

But Merkel has been at a stalemate to elect a new coalition government given her ratings have tanked and her power has been rebranded.   As a result she has decided to embrace the Social Democrat Party, a party defined as Socialist, Liberal, Progressive and Marxist.  

The shift is quite reflective of where Germany’s future branding is leading. Most notably, utilizing the power and previous notoriety of Merkel to create a new Europe similar to the power evoked during WWI and WWII wherein Germany was central within a Marxist protectorate.

Today as Merkel scrambles to reorganize the EU so to reaffirm her power, Italy is on the verge of becoming a ‘far-right’ state in early elections – that is, according to the MSM. The main causal factor in the Italy shift is the migration stance established by Germany and the EU. In addition, BREXIT has contributed to the exodus of the Liberal Socialists as the EU pressures Italy to increase contributions to the EU budget, and Italy balks.

With the UK representing 13.5% of the EU budget, addressing the lost revenue means anteing from every member state. With the push toward making the Balkans member states, more revenue would be necessary in order to bring them to a net positive before they can create a positive EU cash flow.

Italy’s election results are not over, but the two leaders include Lega Nord and 5-Star, both ‘supposedly’ Nationalist and right leaning.   But because neither party won an outright majority, a coalition must be resolved which could take days or months to create.

Italy has undergone some of the complexities plaguing Spain with a high concentration of wealth associated with one particular area supporting the remaining portions of the country.   And while wine continues to be Italy’s largest world share market, it ranks fifth in the world as a tourist destination. Immigrants and crime could dramatically impact that industry and Italians rather enjoy sustaining what they have. With a vibrant, lush history of art, architecture, and antiquity, Italy is keen on preserving its heritage.

Although the Lega Party represents itself as much more of a Nationalist, anti-immigrant, pro-Trump party, the 5-Star Party is much more of a hybrid espousing radical Socialist views and ideals.   They view politics as a non-entity that should never rule outside of the people. Their views have been compared to aligning with the ‘Californian Ideology’ which closely follows the philosophy of Stewart Brand and Ayn Rand.

While Rand is noted for her various novels rooted in ‘objectivisim’, Brand is the initiator of The Whole Earth Catalog and the Now Long Foundation whose projects included building the 10,000 year clock recently completed by Amazon’s, Bezos, who spent $42 million on the project…

The Lega Party claims to be more nationalist in its Euro views, immigrant views, and it’s Pandania Movement which supports the seccession of Northern Italy. The party has evolved considerably since it’s creation having followed Democrat views, an alliance with Burloscusi who followed closely with Merkel’s liberalism, and much in-fighting. Emerging with Matteo Salvini as it’s leader in 2013, the Party has become progressively more right leaning although it too defines itself as a ‘catch-all’ party.

As such, both of these parties advocated by the media as right-wing, are actually relatively moderate with the aim of embracing a ‘one party coalition’, which sounds dangerously similar to Merkel’s recent change of attitude in embracing the German Socialist Party. These pretexts were used to elect Macron as well as he advocated being a middle of the road candidate when in fact he is rather a nonentity who has done nothing at all.

If these one-party/combined-party ideologies were to spread to the US, it would mean the GOP and Democrats aligned together to form the GOPcrats…. Oh wait, that has already happened in their attacks on Trump!   Imagine that.

Germany: Imports and Exports with US

Germany and France have jointly stated that they will alter their own corporate tax rates in defiance of Trump lowering the US rate to 21%.   Currently, Germany’s average rate is about 38-39%, and roughly 33% in France. Turkey, Russia, the UK, and Switzerland all fall below the new US rate. So why would Germany and France really care?   Spain, Italy, Canada, Australia, The Netherlands, China, South Korea and Indonesia are already below the rates imposed by France and Germany. So what’s the big deal about the US lowering it’s rate?

Its a false perception.  Its news.  Its media bias.  And it creates divisiveness.

The EU, albeit Germany and France, are also screaming bloody bull because Trump has stated he is imposing tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum. But the US only imports 3% of it’s steel from Germany, most imported steel comes from Canada, Brazil, South Korea, Mexico, Russia, Turkey and Japan.

According to the Economic Policy Institute, “surging steel imports put up to half a million US jobs at risk.” With Trump promoting infrastructure spending, there needed to be in place some barriers that would force companies to buy American. During the Obama administration steel imports doubled.   Since 2000, US aluminum production has dropped 77%, and the world market share has dropped from 16% to less than 2%.   During the Obama administration imports rose roughly 80%.   By contrast, China’s production has gone from 11% to 53% and they represent the largest world producer.

Making America ‘competitive’ seems to go against the European model.

Opinions from Germany’s DW suggest that Trump is simply being ‘unfair’.   How dare Trump put the American people before Europeans!   Ranting on, the columnist declares that Trump is ‘anti-globalist’ and only cares about the US…   He then attacks the American steelmakers for not switching their focus to more specialized high-value steel. Again, why would Germany be so bent out of shape over a commodity that only represents 3% of all imported steel to the US?

Germany’s ‘slowest growing export is steel’ according to WETx.

The retaliation proposed by Merkel is set to include tariffs on blue jeans, bourbon and Harley motorcycles.   The EU is claiming that by Trump imposing these tariff measures on two items, steel and aluminum, he will be responsible for all EU countries retaliating…   Interesting. So, retaliation is not their fault?   If I steal your motorcycle and then you steal my car – are you not responsible for anything? It is a strange ethic to denounce the US and Trump because we are focusing on ourselves instead of them.

Germany represents only 7.9% of US exports and only 5.5% of the US imports.   The European Union accounts for 54-58% respectively of Germany’s trade.   Trade with the US is not substantial. Trump’s tariffs did not target the biggest exports of the EU, they targeted China. Had Trump wanted to hit Germany, he would have imposed tariffs on Germany’s largest exports: automobiles and machinery. He didn’t.

The largest importer of US Bourbon is Canada. The world’s largest exporter of jeans is China.   The largest exporter of motorcycles is China, followed by Japan, Germany, India, and Italy.   Harley Davidson has already been largely impacted by Japanese manufacturing. Their biggest market remains in the US, with the international market representing roughly 38% of sales including; China, India, Africa, Middle East, EU, and South America. They have been aggressively pursuing smaller bikes to accommodate a changing demographic, however the main motorcycle markets in the EU remain to be Vespa, Honda, Ride, Derby and KTM. The ‘total’ US market share of all motorcycles in the EU was 2.9% in 2011.

So why would Germany target these particular markets?

Maybe because Merkel felt obliged to give the appearance she was going to respond to the big meany Trump so as to continue the media promotion that he’s a big, bad meany guy who only cares about Americans and not Germans…  

Or maybe all the rhetoric coming out of the EU is simply BLATHER.

FACEBOOK Censorship – Just The Beginning

During the 2016 election campaign it was routinely charged that Facebook and Google were manipulating public opinion in favor of Hillary. Zuckerberg was a kid in a candy shop offering to push agendas when he met with Podesta. He wanted to be taught the ropes… He wanted Hillary to win. And he wanted to be a part of that history making.

December Soros sold a tremendous portion of his shares of Facebook and Google.

In January, Soros gave numerous press feeds that Facebook and Google were evil monopoly IT giants manipulating public thought, and they needed to be highly regulated like – tobacco.

In January Zuckerberg announced plans to alter the algorythms of Facebook news feeds so as to give priority to family and friends.   What does that mean?   According to Zuckerberg this change will be ‘good for people’s well-being’.   So Zuckerberg will now determine which businesses, which brands, and which media is ‘good for our well being’.

Those most affected are commentary articles, opinion articles, and political articles that aren’t feel-good. In other words, it is massive Censorship! And Soros basically engineered the entire coup. Why? Because it will suppress political knowledge and create a listless feed of Entertainment Hollywood style to fill our minds with emptiness. Merkel was already using Zuckerberg to censor anti-Muslim views, with which he complied.

This was all engineered by Soros so as to create a fake stance of repudiation because a considerable conservative media existed on Facebook blogs.

YTD, the price of Facebook shares have tipped $192 and dropped to $172.

There are alternative platforms that are getting off the street, albeit slowly; Diaspora, Ello, EyeEm, and Path.   Of these Path has the most registered users at 30 million, Ello has roughly 4 million, and Diaspora is struggling with about 60,000.

Problem:   EyeEm is based in Germany and as such follows the strict censorship rules implemented by Merkel.   Path is not really a competitor given it was founded by a former Facebook executive to be used in conjunction with Facebook. Diaspora doesn’t have the audience. Ello is thus the only alternative.  Ello is a public forum with no blocking features, nor privacy features and no censorship.  For now.

Twitter has admitted to censorship for a number of years using a technique called shadow banning in which your post is blocked and you are not made aware and so can’t complain, or simply blocking your account through a suspension.   Also called censorship.

Government owned news media thrive despite the contention that such a thing is Communist.   BBC is owned by the government, and all content is approved before publication.   Two stations in Australia are government owned; ABC and SBS. In Canada there is the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and the Canada Post.   New Zealand has a television station and the New Zealand Post. Most African nations have their government owned media.   The US has been accused of media manipulation for decades beginning with The Washington Post in Operation Mockingbird.

Typically, state owned media is considered a Communist ideology.

But Hillary was no slouch in utilizing social media in her campaign to lure voters; Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, Quora, PinInterest, Instagram, YouTube. Clinton was everywhere, dominating the scroll – and still didn’t muster a win.   She had panels of writers whose job was to create messages.

Recently, Trump has gained more favorable ratings. Mostly as a result of his social media campaign in which he has the opportunity to reveal what he’s accomplished instead of what the MSM continually portrays. How best to manipulate the thoughts and opinions? Eliminate all availability through algorithm alterations and fill the empty space with ‘good for people’s well-being’ cherry plucked information.

Unless there is a fast track alternative, conservative news will ultimately die out, quashed and beaten, it won’t have a readership because of – an algorithm.
