Op-Eds are determined to paint Trump’s various actions as alienating “allies and friends”. Citing the Iran Nuclear Deal and the Paris climate Summit as examples of Trump being a really ‘mean’ guy, the editorials are otherwise rather hollow in terms of actual journalism that might delve into the ‘why’, the ‘wherefore’, and the ‘who’, and simply spew a column of vacant opinion. And while an Op-Ed, is an ‘opinion’, in true journalism fashion, it would include rationales, reason, evidence, description, and factual basis. Instead, today’s Op-Ed’s are just – blather.
So. Trump is alienating allies and friends. Who might that be? Germany certainly is miffed. And given that Germany now rules the EU Commission, the EU Commission is miffed. And given the EU Commission supposedly represents all EU states, that would imply all the EU is angry at Trump… But in reality – that just ain’t so.
Many EU countries are back pedaling from the dictatorship of Germany over their sovereignty. They have come to realize that their country is no longer theirs, but instead is a mini-state of Germany, and that’s not going over very well: Spain is in its own flurry and chaos given the Catalonia disruption which is based on division of wealth. Italy is now facing a Coup d’Etat politically. Hungary has expelled Germany’s puppet master, Soros. Romania and Trump just struck a new trade deal. The UK is mired in Swamp revelations. Sweden has succumbed to migrant chaos and destruction.
The problem with the Op-Eds as currently initiated is these consequences are directly related to internal political corruption, and/or dissatisfaction with an abysmal economic profile – NOT Trump. But the opinion pieces fail to provide dissertation or factual backup.
Journalism has come to represent slanderous yapping, instead of the reporting of statistics and facts.
Some Op-Eds reference Canada as a lost ally because of Trump. However, they fail to reference the current internal chaos that has lodged a wicked knife in the heart of Canada’s economy under Trudeau. Headlines include:
- Expanded Canada Pension Plan could decrease investment in Canada by up to $114 billion over next dec
- Lack of pipelines will cost Canada $15.8 billion this year
- Rate of small business startups in Canada down nearly 50% in 30 years.
- Record high gas prices show need for gas tax reform (taxes represent 33% of the cost of gas)
- One million Canadians waited for medical treatment in 2017 costing $1.9 billion in lost wages
This is an insight into the ally with whom we want to model and align our economic decision making?
Australia, another ally that follows liberal policies and politics. Over the last ten years their GDP growth rate has rarely broken 1% and never reached 1.5%. Their forecast outlook is completely flat. The US remains Australia’s second highest trade partner, after China. The top exports to China include Iron Ore and coal, two of the most polluting commodities. And while Australia would ‘like’ to boast of the their advanced immigration statistics – Muslims and refugees barely make the list given that they have tough requirements in order to qualify including advanced education and degrees.
Paris Climate Accord: So after receiving billions in Grants, what has the Paris Climate Accord accomplished? Because Merkel is fuming over the fact that Trump is not offering any more money.. The Accord has re-distributed money from various countries into a global pocketbook that would be deposited with the UN and disposed of via ‘private sector asset owners’. Which sounds an awful lot like a giant subsidy for the world’s largest corporate polluters to draw from when they are sued for polluting…
In essence, the ally that is most disrupted by the Trump administration is Germany. And in essence, given Germany is fundamentally a Globalization cabal statehood with the Rothschilds and Soros leading the government, and by default, The Swamps, they would not be so much an ally – as a wolf in disguise.
