China Spygate: Arrest of Huawei CFO

Canadian officials arrested Huawei’s CFO, Meng Wanzhou, for allegedly violating sanctions against Iran. Canada claims they did so at the behest of the US and extradition will follow.  But no one in the US seems to have a clue who ordered the arrest, and given that arrests for sanctions violations have never been conducted by the US, the entire scheme seems more than a bit odd, if not a setup, if not falsely reported.

Typically, charges for violations are brought by the Justice Department and involve heavy fines – not arrests.  In this case, HSBC was the favored means of laundering according to reports.  HSBC has a history of laundering with the dubious honor of holding the largest sanctions fine as of 2012 at $1.3 billion as part of a prosecution agreement and $665 million in civil penalties.   At the time, the customers included Cuba, Iran, Libya, Sudan and Burma.  No individual was prosecuted.  In 2014, BNP beat the previous honor and agreed to fork over $8.9 billion in penalties after admitting to laundering transactions involving Iran, Sudan and Cuba.  NO prosecution of individuals ensued.

Bolton has claimed he was both aware in advance – and unaware of the arrest.  Trump was most emphatically unaware, which begs the questions who, why, and how?

The announcement was parlayed on the same day that Trump announced progress in trade talks with China’s Xi Jinping.  And thus alludes to the belief that the arrest was an attempt to defrock the positive and tank the stock market.   China has been relatively quiet, Xinhau News making no comment today, and yesterday relaying a press release that was the only press release available to all media outlets.

Canada has released partial information given a ban on media was requested and granted on Ms. Wanzhou’s request.   According to the Canadian government, they state that Wanzhou, who is ‘Chinese’ is suspected of working for the Chinese government and is a spy.  Which would make the Iran sanctions violation a distraction over the real reason for the arrest.

Ren Zhengfei, founder and President of Huawei Technology, is Wanzhou’s father.  Ren was a member of the Peoples Liberation Party where he worked in the military division as an IT Researcher.  He later joined the Communist Party of China.

Due to his military and Party affiliations, India felt Huawei presented a security concern and barred them from winning particular contracts.   Other countries have made similar security concern comments, but no one – did anything.   Huawei’s attempt to buyout US 3Com was forcibly collapsed due to spying concerns.   They have been on the radar and skated.

Hauwei manufactures telecommunications equipment, smartphones, and networking equipment.  Allegations have arisen that its equipment could contain ‘backdoors’ allowing unauthorized surveillance by the Chinese government and the PLA.  The company response was that their equipment posed no greater threat than any other company – which is legal speak for ‘everyone’s doing it’.  As such, miffed, August 2018, they stated that they would pull out of the US market.  Not quite so easily done.

Huawei is enmeshed in various partnerships with:  Motorola, T Mobile, Honeywell, GE, Deutsche Telekom, Groupe PSA, Symantec, Siemens and others.  Well ingrained in equipment throughout the world, it has overtaken Apple in sales of smartphones and is well on its way to being one of the top five cloud computing companies.

Obviously the Iran sanction violation is a media distraction.  The gag order is being contested.  But given the fact that China is actually being relatively silent regarding the entire situation would indicate that they know considerably more.

The arrest might also be a different backdoor – a bargaining chip…

For an arrest to have been made, evidence of the allegations would be necessary.  The Justice Department is currently head by Acting Attorney General, Matthew Whitaker, hardly a light weight.   He is an avid Trump supporter, and faithful to draining The Swamp.

The media has claimed that William Barr heads the list for Trump’s pick for Attorney General, however whether Barr wants the nomination is unclear and confirmation could easily take months, thereby giving Whitaker reign on the possibility of China spygate.

Tariffs anyone?

 

UN Migration Pact: Global Order By UN

On December 10 and 11 the world governments will come together to sign the UN Migration Pact. So far the US, Hungary, Poland, Austria, Czech Republic, Israel, Australia, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Switzerland and Italy have withdrawn approval.  Why?

The Pact is an ongoing attempt to globalize governments into the rule of International Law whereby decisions are arbitrated on behalf of a country given “no state can address migration alone”.   Further, the Pact states that data collection will become a strategized goal whereby a global programme will determine a countries national capacity. This data will be reviewed by the UN Statistical Commission annually in cooperation with the World Bank Global Knowledge Partnership on Migration and Development.  Migration will no longer be classified as having a refugee status, all migrants will be created equal.  And all arms will point back to the global powerhead – the UN!

Within this Migration Pact, the 2030 Agenda For Sustainable Development will be forefront.  Migration as a result of Climate Change will ensure the human rights of those affected taking in recommendations from ‘state-led’ consultants.  In so doing all immigrants will receive a work permit, a certificate of nationality, counseling, legal guidance on their rights according to International Law, gender responsive support, training, and a job.  As their Human Right.

As Africa sees mass exodus as a direct result of these freebies, African states will likely be more vulnerable and subject to takeover.  Land grabs will be more prolific and Green Climate Funds derived from the Paris Accord will suddenly make sense in their diversion.  Full circle to a Continent untapped and in need of vast infrastructure improvement in order to adequately cultivate those resources.  Ta-Da – Africa Couped!

In the meantime, the UN will extend their arm of Global Leader.  The division of Africa will come under the control and mandate of the UN, and those with insider rule will WIN.

As of 2015, the countries whose ODA (Official Development Assistance) was concentrated in Africa include: Portugal, Ireland, Belgium, and Iceland. The US contributed the greatest dollar amount covering 30% of all contributions to Africa.

The 2030 Agenda, which is lovingly referred to as the New Agenda, states that the means of implementation of a Utopian world will only be able to be accomplished via a ‘Global Partnership’ whereby global solidarity is paramount.  The New Agenda lays out The Addis Ababa Action Agenda as the means to finance the litany of Agendas:    “…a commitment to a new ‘social compact’ in which countries commit to set up social protection systems, with national spending targets for essential services like health and education. If countries cannot funds these through domestic resources, the international community pledges to provide international assistance.

Countries also agreed to work together to fund infrastructure for energy, transport, and water and sanitation, as well as step-up investments in agriculture and nutrition. There was also a commitment to establish a ‘facilitation mechanism’ to promote innovation and scientific cooperation, identify technology needs and gaps, and support capacity building on technology.” 

Countries will fund these Agendas by committing a percentage of Gross National Income.

Of course, the biggest issue in implementing Addis Ababa was Tax.  Therefore, the UN created a new programme entitled, Tax Inspectors Without Borders.   They will help countries to collect and audit the implemented tax that will fund the fund that funds that funds the fund within the ODA fund that gives the money to recreate Africa after all the mass exodus of natives and their relocation with freebies across the EU, North and South America.

As of 2018, these Tax Inspectors managed to raise $414 million.

Given that by simple Geographics the EU is the closest land mass for the African exodus, a quota that includes all countries across the globe is necessary in order to disperse according to the UN’s determination of  ‘capacity’.   Guidelines will map global sites of entry and the UN will determine the welfare administration of these displaced migrants.

Currently, war and conflicts have been the primary means of achieving exodus.  But this was based on refugee status and excluded simple immigrants. These UN provisions would alter that censorship of migration and Open Borders to all.   It extends the global power hold that the UN has been ramping up for decades within a body that grossly mismanages its own funds according to their latest audit, is mired in sex trafficking, rape and sexual assaults in Africa, and seems to in reality have ‘accomplished’ nothing other than to hold countless discussions and make empty meaningless promises.

The New World Order is under the gun and fighting a ravage brawl in its home base of Germany.   You just can’t make this stuff up!

All of this is being done in the name of “Mother Earth”, according to the UN.  Scottie beam me aboard the Mother Ship – NOW!

CHINA Economy Spiraling! Germany Stalling! US Economy Flying!

China’s stock market has slid nearly 23% in one year.   While some economists would shout out Trump and the trade was as the causal factor, the downward trend began six months before the trade war began.  And it isn’t looking likely to shift anywhere positive. Estimates put a $5 trillion devaluation on Asian companies over the last year.  And while some economics point to a thriving housing market as a vestige of prosperity – think again.

Property speculation has been huge in China with short term flips of entire apartment buildings generating new millionaires.   It was easy money, until it wasn’t.

Developers are dropping prices by as much as 20-30%.  The flippers are caught in the middle with massive loans and a panic is brewing.  Property protests are the new norm and property owners are demanding companies compensate for the rapid decline.

While government data suggests the property market is up 7%, reality begs a completely different picture. Where does the truthful information generate from – blogs.  Economists and banks are more concerned with blocking the information given a panic could spiral China’s fragile economy out of control.

China’s largest developer, Vanke, actually compensated property owners with cash and new vehicles in an effort to quell the protests after their decision to drop prices by 33%.  Vanke’s Chairman Yu Liang told staff last month that “survival” was the ultimate goal for the developer over the next year, adding that the property market’s “turning point has really arrived.”

The concern is that the heavily indebted developers could go belly up creating a banking crisis.

When Trump initiated the tariff dispute, the economic fragility of China was known.  He put President Xi Jinping in a precarious position, and Xi Jinping fell into the hole of ego.   It has long been the consensus that China never reveals true numbers, manipulation has been the norm.  But Trump is a businessman, and caught off guard, Jinping did not know how best to negotiate and instead created a greater downward spiral.

Germany too is seeing the results of their refusal to bargain.   Add to the tension that Merkel took a lone stand in tabling trade with Saudi Arabia as the Khashoggi death is unwound, Germany’s economy splintered further.  Germany faltering translates to an EU spiraling.  German banks are also testing economic stability as fraud and corruption is revealed among the bigger Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank and stiff fines are sure to contract profits.

And while German trade continues to ramp a surplus, it comes at a cost to every other EU member who rely on their exports, i.e. Germany’s imports, to keep their heads above water.   Germany has become exactly what they accuse the Trump administration of adhering to – ‘Nationalism’.  Willing to let their EU partners stumble and fall, Germany is looking to support one country – Germany.

Like China’s Xi Jinping, Merkel is in a hole of ego.  Having no business acumen, she is at a loss of how to respond, how to negotiate, how come to the bargaining table.

By contrast, the US economy is growing and strong.  Reinvented by policies of individual and corporate tax reductions, legislation reducing regulations, and energy production, the Trump guidebook is working.

Slaying the demons with a sword in one hand, Trump inspires and reignites hope and faith with his Olympic torch in the other hand.  We know it is working when the barbs fly relentlessly.  We know it is working when every MSM plugs a slew of defamation that has no basis.  

We know it is working because the numbers don’t lie.

IMF: A Crumbling Figurehead

The IMF has lowered its global economic forecast citing as the main fault the US-China trade debacle. It stated that Germany would be hit particularly hard as well as a number of EU countries.   China and the US would also show slowed economies… China was slated to show a growth rate of 6.2% which was lower than the previous July at 6.4%, a minimal decrease. Bbut “Both” numbers are apparently the smallest growth since 1990.   That would indicate that the global growth rate was falling before the US trade war.

So how then can the US-China trade war be a consideration when it’s impact represents such a small reduction?

And is the IMF even an accurate ‘predictor’?

In 2013, Zero Hedge posted various graphs showing the IMF crystal ball predictions regarding World Growth, US Growth and China Growth.  The quarterly revisions for China resulted in an ultimate downgrade of roughly 1.5 percentage points, for the US .8 percentage points, and for the globe .5 percentage points, which extrapolate to a margin of error of a high of 17.2%.

Not exactly a stellar Economic Opinion.

But it also begs the question if the global rate is only 3.4% average and India and China are over 6% and 8%, that means the relative weight of the value of all goods and services is flat – and these spikes from various countries don’t really have much of an impact on the global worth.   While GDP rates are important on a country by country basis, the global rate is likely only significant when measuring those countries with the highest values when marking economic health.   For example if you have five companies each earning $1 billion, and a sixth company earning $1000, if the company earning $1000 is now earning 55% more or $1550 the global impact is not relevant.

Libya has the honor of checking in with the highest annual GDP rate 55.1%, followed by Ethiopia at  8.5% and a list of Asian and African countries that follow.  The US, China and parts of the EU remain a turtle’s pace, but the Tortoise still beat the Hare.

A study done by the Heritage Foundation between 1977 and 1998 in analyzing the reliability of the IMF predictions, found that the margin of error for developing countries was tied to IMF funding.  The bias stemmed from whether a country received IMF funding with over-estimation errors being the rule.

A quick glance at Germany reveals that imports and exports are slightly down this year compared to the previous year, and external debt is at an all time high.   These measurements came ‘before’ any US trade issues.   But those numbers are relatively mirror images of all the biggest value countries – debt is at an all time high, and trade is flat.

The final analysis by the Heritage Foundation:

WEO forecasts shows the prevalence of systematic turning point errors relative to the actual value. 14 These errors take the form of consistent under- and overestimation, which are pervasive in WEO projections for output growth, inflation, and balance of payments on the current account in both industrial countries and developing regions.

Turning point errors imply that the IMF forecasts fail to capture and include crucial economic events and shocks. This failure would weaken the IMF’s effectiveness because early diagnosis of its member countries’ vulnerabilities to potential crises is critical to fulfilling the IMF’s mandate of ensuring the international financial system’s stability. Tables 1a and 1b report the results of this analysis.

So why do we listen?  Why does the market react?  Why should we care?

Because we are ingrained to believe that the IMF has reliability when in reality – they don’t.  Markets are driven by factors more relevant to money supply and interest rate projections.  The IMF really has no power, they remain a figure head that has long outlasted their initial value.  Initially created to help countries balance exchange rates and provide short-term capital to balance payments, instead, today they are a dictatorship whereby developing countries sell their souls for loans they can’t repay.

In response to the flagrant corruption within the IMF, China created the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank in 2014, and the BRICS created the BRICS Contingent Reserve Arrangement.

Ocotber 1st, the IMF appointed a new top Economist, Gita  Gopinath born in India, schooled at Princeton, teacher at Harvard, and student of Ben Bernanke.  She is responsible for over-seeing forecasts – predictions.  Her particular proficiency would seem to be currency movements, interestingly, the same market advocated by Soros.   She has stated that the movement of currency is faulty because it is invoiced in US dollars.

The dollar is still quite strong, but a shift is the agenda.

Colonize Africa: Merkel and Juncker Coup

EU Commissioner, Paul Juncker, has decided that the EU will invest $46 billion in Africa in order to keep up with the Jones’s – albeit the Jings of China…   He claims that for years the EU has been rattling and waving a big stick of claims toward investment, but no one has yet actually backed their stick with hard cash.   So, apparently, now is the perfect time given all the refugees…  What?

The “hope” is that the EU money will encourage private investors to come into Africa and create vocational training and jobs for nearly one million people.   The population of Africa is 1.2 billion and it is expected to double by 2050.  In current day dollars, an investment of $46 billion represents less than $46 per person.

What can this possibly do?  Nothing for Africa, but everything for the land grabbers who need infrastructure in order to cultivate their – land.

So then it isn’t really about investing in the people, it is about investing in;  transport, road infrastructure and energy.   At the same time, the EU is making statements that in accord with the Paris Climate Agreement, the commitment to gas free transportation is a priority…  So why would they commit billions to drilling oil in Africa if the value of oil is slated to plummet existentially as the EU becomes completely oil free?  Odd.  I think it’s called – hypocrisy.

But it gets even more murky.

The EU wants to tighten its relationship with the EIB, European Investment Bank, which is currently spending 6 billion Euro to determine the causes of migration and flight from Africa…   Hey, I’ll figure it out for free!  It’s because they are dying and have no food, and their governments are so corrupted they will sell everything to the foreigners offering cash which the government will then deposit in an offshore account, while reaping the benefits of the payoff each and every day. And the foreigners?   They continue to pay because the Land Grabs have cultivated a need for um – infrastructure, transport, and energy!   And Africa is the last and largest bastion of resource to confiscate!  Easy Picking’s.

VOILA!

Therefore,  the EU wants the people to ante up and open their pockets to pay for Africa’s infrastructure in order to support the wealthy land grabbers who need free roads and a thriving transport economy to support their agricultural harvests so they can pocket the money in an off=shore account and pay no tax.   Initially, the Paris Climate Agreement money was going to be spent on these needs, but with the US pulling out, a new agenda needed to be created in order to fund these projects.  And so, the billion s necessary to fund the infrastructure to support the land grabbers, will be payable via the Eu Commission mandate.

IN a perfect mind, it would seem that Merkel, Macron, Juncker are completely oblivious to the real Africa, the Africa that is a desolation of constant death, of disease and more death, of authorities who care nothing for the people, and in all probability see the eradication of the populace as ‘global population control’.   In a perfect mind, the visions that are the real Africa are squelched, and like Saudi Arabia, a fake world is portrayed, a Hollywood vista!

These refugees can not create a new Germany.  Or France.   They have a mind, a brain, that has been altered according to their circumstances.  Rape is acceptable.   Pedophilia is acceptable.   Food is the motivation.   And boundaries do not exist – at all.

Yes, they are different. As they should be.  As – contrary to the goodness meme – which states that we are all the same…  we aren’t.   Not one of us.  We are – each unique, according to our genetics, and according to our environment.   

The EU would pretend that their blood is the same.   It may have once been, but it is no longer.    They don’t have an education.  They don’t have a culture.  They know one thing – basic instinctual survival.   And that dictates their every day thinking.   When Merkel and her cohorts discuss educating Africa, they speak to the pits.   Their intention is single minded, to take over Africa.   To create refugees so that entire countries are left desolate and subject to takeover.  To colonize a continent that has for thousands of years – failed.

To rape their land. Their only commodity.  This is the agenda.  It has no moral high ground.

Their leaders are willing subjects, easily bought with gems, liquor, property, and sexual fantasies. We would like to pretend it is otherwise.  But this is the reality.  This is Africa.   And still, their population is estimated to double in thirty years.   Leaving any progress in the toilet as it is too little, too late.   Giving a trade to a million people when the population is 2 .5 billion will not lift them out of their throes of dire poverty, death and starvation.

But it will line the pockets of a few land grab owners who need infrastructure in order to advance the cultivation of their newly acquired land.

And that – is the agenda. Despite Merkel’s fake demonstration. Despite Juncker’s fake empathy.    They have no heart, they are ruled by a dictator who has one rule of Order – World Control.

One only needs to look at the reality of Africa.  Today. And forty years ago.   A hundred years ago.  Nothing has changed for the Afrikaners.   Not in a hundred years or a thousand.   Nor will their be any major change – tomorrow.

They are about to become the new EU slaughterhouse.   Because, their land has usefulness.   Because, the reality is, Merkel and Juncker see them as commodities, not people.   And that is what matters.

How many billions of dollars have already been spent on Africa to no avail.   Has the corruption subsided?  Has the starvation been impeded?  Have the people risen to become middle class by western standards?   Is there even – WATER?   Is there a stove?   Is there a fish?

A hundred years later, is Africa better today than it was a hundred years ago?

Roughly 30,000 people die every day in Africa, more than 50% of them are children.  Is this better?

A hundred years ago Europe was busily trying to determine how best to annex and divide Africa at the behest of Europe.  Nothing has changed.  Just the media.

Somehow, the media is attempting to obliterate history, even history that is fifty years old.  While the internet can be edited and censored, books remain.   Lest we repeat the ‘burning of the books’ during the time of Constantinople, we have a resource to help provide – the Truth.   More than ever, it is important to hold on to the written words, because even the Editors can alter an online book’s dialogue.   But the written word, the physical book, this is our history, our truth, and our wisdom. 

Hide it wisely.    

 

 

South Africa’s White Genocide = Russia’s Boom

White genocide is not only ‘occuring’ in South Africa, it is not only condoned by the Black African government, it is now written into law as an enforceable execution!  And not one Mainstream Media outlet has the courage, or guts to report on this fact.   It is white genocide.  It is ethnic cleansing.  It is murder. And it comes with not only the permission and sanction of the government, but it comes as a law – of the government.

It is not just ordered that white farmers ‘can’ be murdered by the black locals, it is ordered that the white farmers ‘should be murdered’ as retribution for their ownership of land.

The last vestige of political correctness at its height.  It doesn’t fit the agenda of blacks are all sweet and whites are all evil. Because the agenda might be turned topsy-turvy as the hatred is legitimized in the venue of – murder.

“LAST month, British woman Sue Howarth and her husband Robert Lynn were woken at 2am by three men breaking into a window of their remote farm in Dullstroom, a small town in the northeast of South Africa, about 240km from the nearest capital city.

The couple, who had lived in the area for 20 years, were tied up, stabbed, and tortured with a blowtorch for several hours. The masked men stuffed a plastic bag down Mrs Howarth’s throat, and attempted to strangle her husband with a bag around his neck.

The couple were bundled into their own truck, still in their pyjamas, and driven to a roadside where they were shot. Mrs Howarth, 64, a former pharmaceutical company executive, was shot twice in the head. Mr Lynn, 66, was shot in the neck.”

Where is Charlize Theron whose mother and father made their livelihood as South African Farmers?   Why isn’t she defending her family?   Where is the outrage for the ethnic cleansing? The Genocide?

I have written about this for years, and still there is no support for the murdered families, the tortured families who have done nothing but try and build a life – legally.  Various numbers abound, but some venture that as many as 70,000 whites have been murdered in South Africa for the crime of owning and cultivating their land.

The contention that whites own a disproportionate 73% of the south African farmland may or may not be valid, but it is also noteworthy that South Africa has been one of the more prosperous countries of the African nation.  It is now considered an upper middle class economy having grown exponentially since 1996 and ranks in the top five of African nations.  That is all about to change as local blacks feel entitled to the wealth held by white land owners.

This is not the first time African black governments have attempted to cleanse whites from land ownership in Africa.  Fifteen years go in Zimbabwe land seizures resulted in a turbulent economic recession that has never recovered.    It is seen as a complete anarchist move that resulted in chaos and economic failure.  Today, the collapsed economy in Zimbabwe is inviting the white farmers to come back and show them how to farm the land in return for a share of the profits.

So why would South Africa fall into this same trap?

Greed. Bitterness.   Entitlement.  

Redistribution of Wealth;  The same type of reformation that led to the Obama era of chaos and division in the US and the same solution Bernie Sander’s Socialists exploit today.

It would be akin to firing all the biologists, scientists and medical personnel at Merck and replacing them with McDonald’s workers.   It may not be a politically correct comparison, but it would be an accurate comparison. What would happen to Merck?

“In 1997, the country’s (Zimbabwe) economy was among the strongest on the continent. This year, its growth rate is predicted to be 1.5 percent, according to the government, lower than that of any of its neighbors. Between 2000 and 2009, agricultural revenue declined by $12 billion, according to the commercial farmers’ union. The nation, once called “the breadbasket of Africa,” relies on international aid to feed 25 percent of its population, according to the World Food Program.”

Given that stellar statistic, South Africa’s Cyril Ramaphosa elected February 2018, has imposed the exact same confiscation program wherein farmland owned by whites may be confiscated for no compensation.

Prior to this declaration, according to Newsweek, a white South African Farmer was killed every five days in South Africa with no criminal repercussions whatsoever.  Wives and daughters were brutally raped.  And frequently, the farmers and their family would be hacked to death though the use of machetes.   No one prosecuted…

An interesting twist to this African chaos is the fact that since 2014 Russia began offering ‘free farm land’ , dubbed the Russian Homestead Act, whereby any and all naturalized citizens and Russians were eligible.  Upwards of 43 million hectares is available.  Hundreds if not thousands of applicants have already positioned themselves, many coming from South Africa and Zimbabwe.   The Russian government has pledged to build the necessary infrastructure at their expense, and the program is seemingly quite successful!

So once again Africa’s thousand year plight of stagnant or back propelled growth is extended into another century amidst the theory that redistribution of wealth created by the evil whites will be the driving power that finally brings Africa into the global boom…

In reality, it is another – bust.

Germany: FREE Child Care Will Cost 3 Billion Euro

Germany has a daycare problem, it has been made hugely worse by the importation of millions of immigrants who by law may use the municipal daycare facilities, for free given they have no income.   However, there are simply nowhere near enough facilities to accommodate the German children, much less the multitudes of added immigrants.   Merkel’s solution?  Make it all free, then everyone will be guaranteed a spot! Yeah!  Sounds good for the media!   So what’s the problem?  There are NO SPOTS!   Stories abound of German workers who take advantage of the extended leave made available by law, put their children on a waiting list, only to find there still is no available slot after their 14 months leave has run out.

Making daycare free will only exasperate the problem!   Subsidies already cover a hefty percentage of the costs at roughly 225 euros per month. Until recently, this subsidy was provided to parents that chose to keep their children home, out of daycare, but this law was over-turned when a group of activists protested that it encouraged moms to stay at home – a taboo in Germany.

Because in Germany, it is much more preferable to have the state bring up your children for you… And they can’t understand why their birth rate is the lowest in all of Europe.  Odd.

Refugees and immigrants are given priority for daycare slots because the government feels this is the only way to assure the children will learn German…   Thus, Germans are relegated to hiring nannies and au-pairs at a significantly higher cost.

Essentially, when Merkel announced free daycare for everyone, she was really addressing all the immigrants who have yet to take advantage of the welfare benefit.   The potential domino effect of these policies is Germans will lose their employment because they can’t find daycare, can’t find an au pair or nanny, or can’t afford the private costs.

In 2011, Merkel announced that all children over three have the ‘legal right’ to daycare.   In 2013, all children over the age of 12 months were granted this ‘legal right’.  But the terminology is useless if there isn’t an available facility.   In fact, it was estimated that in order to accommodate this right by 2013, Germany would have needed to ADD 140,000 new facilities!  Never made it even close, the infrastructure was not available and the cost topped well over $3 billion.

The solution?

In 2017, a judge determined that parents who are unable to find a government sponsored facility may sue the government for lost wages!   Merkel?

While state sponsored German media outlets applaud the low cost grand scheme of daycare in Germany, the reality is starkly different:

  1. shortage of workers, in Germany they are called ‘childminders’ for family care, means importing them from other countries…
  2. shortage of facilities meant that many communities simply used PODS, or warehouses without any play areas, small spaces, crowded spaces, and inadequate supplies.
  3. parents have taken to bribing managers given the wait list can be exorbitantly long, 5 or more years in more urban areas like Munich and Heidelberg.
  4. a study commissioned by the Federal Families Ministry of Germany, found that only 3% of the facilities were considered of ‘good’ quality.  None apparently made it higher.
  5. there is no standard curriculum and politicians don’t want to require one given this could increase already burgeoning costs.

The cost to the government in providing subsidies and promoting families has been running  $270 billion per year.   Part of the reasoning for the initiative was a result of the ever declining birth rate – which was the major reasoning behind bringing in the immigrants.  Germany needs children and immigrants to fill the cost of supporting an ever aging population, because the German birth rate continues to decline.  So the government decided that the reason adults in Germany were not procreating was because they wanted more state sponsored welfare programs to raise their children for them.

What will Merkel’s new freebie contribute?

Higher taxes given Germany is already grappling with the requirement that it boost it’s military spending to be in compliance with EU regulations, nothing is “Free”.  Higher childcare costs as demand can not match availability, and expatriation as couples search to fill their needs.

Cost of Child Care in Germany:

State run facility – $400 Euro per month average

Private facility – $500 to $900 per month average

Au Pair – 4 weeks paid vacation, 30 hour work week, sick days, public holidays, paid travel, secure room, board and a monthly stipend starting at roughly 450 euros.

Nanny – typically charge 2,000 to 2,500 Euro a month

EU Commission: Gluttonous Spending

The EU Commission is embarking on a massive mission of garnering sought after revenue by suing major US companies including; Google, Amazon, Starbucks, Qualcomm and Apple. The woman behind the coup is Denmark’s, Margreth Vestager, a Socialist Liberal.   Vestager was the primary instigator in leveling a fine on Cyprus Airlines that ultimately resulted in their going bankrupt and the loss of 550 jobs.  By all accounts, she is – brutal.

The Google fine is heavy, weighing in at an astounding $5.1 billion as well as a demand that they change their business model to allow greater competition in the European market.  Whether this affects the share price is debatable, but the fact that the EU is specifically targeting US firms is of more interest as the Commission revenues have floundered and an appeal for funds is most likely the driving force, especially when BREXIT is finalized and 14 billion euro’s result in a significant shortfall.

The Trade War Behind The Trade War

This is not the first time the EU Commission has made headlines and enemies in trade disputes. IN 2004 Microsoft was ordered to pay $497 million which was the largest fine to date.  In 2006, they again attacked Microsoft and imposed an additional $448 million for competition violations.   And again in 2009 imposed $1.44 billion in fines.  And again in 2013, 561 million Euros.  In 2009, the EU Commission fined Intel $1.45 billion.

It would seem that the EU Commission is pocketing quite a bit of revenue from fines which, according to Article 83 of the EU Commission Protocol, are not reported as revenue but instead are held in a ‘special fund’ portfolio of high quality sovereign bonds with no designated purpose. 

In 2014, the Commission reported that of 70 separate fines imposed on various businesses, they collected $2.2 billion in ‘funds’.   In 2016, the EU Commission expenditures topped 136.4 billion Euros with roughly 8 billion going toward ‘Administration’.  Of course, it is important to note that administration is not an all inclusive of salaries and wages given that each sub-section absorbs costs that are ‘allocated’ to the specific project.   The two largest projects are;  Sustainable Growth Natural Resources, and Smart and Inclusive Growth which combined absorb over 90% of expenditures.

What the heck?

Smart and Inclusive Growth is supposedly targeting infrastructure and jobs in the least developed EU countries.   Sustainable Growth targets increased agriculture productivity.

In 2013, an external audit revealed that £109 billion out of a total of £117 billion spent by the EU in 2013 was “affected by material error”.  In fact, the audits for the previous 19 years all revealed similar deficits.  At the same time, the Commission was demanding additional sums from the UK in the amount of 1.7 billion creating  a havoc of hypocrisy and distrust.

The newly released budget for the Commission is slated at 1.14 trillion Euro.  The largest expenditure is applied to ‘foreign aid’ for countries wishing to become EU members – 123 billion Euros.

Given such an astronomical budget, what exactly has the EU Commission accomplished over it’s lifetime?

1)  It ratified the Paris Climate Accord

2)  It initiated the phasing out of export subsidies to allow poorer countries the opportunity to compete in agriculture

3)  It banished the death penalty

4)  It created a single market

5)  It ‘theoretically created open borders that meant passports were not necessary – although in reality due to the EU’s refuge and immigrant abject failures this open border policy is no longer being followed.

But most of the funding supports Research and studies that tackle various concerns including a project that determined cargo ships use less fuel than lorries, a mobile app to monitor weight loss, a publication of our galaxy, the design of an electric car for aging people, continuing research to expand renewable energy supply which now accounts for 5% of all energy output, and a project in which busses were subjected to a three year trial to determine if hydrogen fuel is a viable alternative…

While these projects all have relevance, it would seem the cost of funding the commission is rather extraordinary in comparison to the actual economic benefits achieved.

BY contrast, it would appear the US does not reciprocate in embarking in lawsuits against EU businesses that violate trade competition.

Child Detention Centers Generated $5.2 Billion Annually?

October 2012, a scathing article was written exposing the Obama Practice of putting illegal alien children crossing the border alone in prison like detention centers, and given the lack of space, sometimes they had to be housed at military facilities.   Between October 2011 and June 2012, border agents apprehended 15590 children and put them in detention centers.   There were no parents in these shelters. 

In 2014, a USA Today article again unleashed a scathing report as it exposed 90,000 unaccompanied children were now living in US detention centers, while 1100 of them were being housed at a Texas Air Force base due to lacking space.

It was revealed that according to Homeland Security:

“Several temporary and permanent resettlement centers on the border have opened just to house unaccompanied migrant children. But the HHS’ Administration for Children & Families, which has responsibility for the children, won’t say where the centers are or how much is being spent for the kids’ care.”

Federal law states that the unaccompanied children are supposed to be turned over to HHS within 72 hours and then reunited with parents or other relatives already living in the United States.

But they weren’t – otherwise there would be no need for so many Detention Facilities.  Follow The Money.   The Walmart in Brownsville Texas that garnered all kinds of conspiracy theories that it was going to be a prison for US citizens when Obama declared Marshall Law – was actually transformed into a ‘children’s detention facility’ and shuttered from the press or public – by Obama.

The conditions of some facilities were so awful a complaint was filed by the American Civil Liberties Organization citing children not even given water, molestation, and beatings.   At the time federal funding cuts were being made against organizations that were tasked with addressing this problem. Appropriations were scarce, and according to the article:  “The problem with the administration is they don’t want to give information,” he said. “In fact, there’s times when they don’t want to give information to members of Congress. It’s almost like they don’t want the American public to know about the situation.”

The issue was obviously quite alive and thriving throughout the entire tenure of the Obama Administration who wanted to cover it up, and pretend it didn’t exist.

In fact, the exact same photos were being splashed across the media exposing ‘cages’ and over-crowded facilities – in 2014.

But it even gets better for those with short term memory loss.  In 2016, Obama was attempting to force the state of Texas to grant the largest child detention facility a new classification “Child Care Facility”, despite the fact that it was originally built as a prison for men.   It boasts a gym, Zumba classes, a beauty salon, playgrounds and a school, not exactly short-term – as in 72 hour holding.   While opponents wanted the facilities shut down and the children released, Obama argued that it would not be in their best interest and granting child care status would open the facilities up to receiving considerably more government funding.

A former employee at one of the Texas centers stated that, “security locked up migrant mothers who spoke out about the conditions. She said a psychologist worked as an informant for federal agents, and that her bosses regularly asked her to omit complaints to hide them from government audits. In early 2015 and again in December 2015, migrants at the center went on hunger strikes.”

Obama argued that sending the children to live with their relatives while giving them an ‘ankle bracelet’ to monitor them would only cost $17 a day compared to the $159 per day it cost to house a child in a detention center – or roughly $4800 per month per child – $58,000 per year!  And Obama wanted to expand the cost… why?  Most likely because he is a share holder through a series of offshore trust accounts.

So the disservice that Time Magazine, The Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, Mika Brzezinski and all the despicable faces in Hollywood  have conveniently forgotten – is the POLICY was not only created by the Obama Administration, but they fought tooth and nail to make it into a mega-business venture utilizing taxpayer funding! At $58,000 a head times 90,000 children – that translates to a $5.22 billion annual revenue…

US Communism: Buyer Beware

When everyone is ‘equal’, and no one is merited for their achievements, it is called “Communism”.  Communism by definition is the absence of social classes.  It advocates the ideology that the root of all problems in society stem from conflict between classes.  Common ownership.  Sharing no matter the labor, no matter the intellect.   Someone with an IQ of 180 is no different than one with an IQ of 80, and thus they may be deemed the exact same labor as determined by the dictatorship government. 

A valedictorian was denied his status despite his credentials because it might ‘offend’ those who didn’t achieve such heights.  It was deemed an unfair and unequal status and eliminated from the High School, East Wake High School, of North Carolina.

Firefighters have fought the communist agenda for decades as requirements were lowered in order to facilitate those who could not pass exams.

Imagine a doctor who was pushed through despite nearly failing every exam?  A politician who didn’t know politics?   A teacher who taught math without knowing basic principles… Of wait, that already exists.

Tolerance has come to mean – “everyone is capable even if they aren’t.

The means to crumble a society is to take away the achievers.

Sex education in the University of California now advocates porn for children as young as 10 or 12 stating that it is healthy and natural.   Yet, in the midst of the worst child sex trafficking ever known to man, somehow the university has no opinion.  Perhaps it is because those making these decisions were shuttled through the system barely able to read, but worthy of equality.

My generation has less than fond memories of this equality indoctrination when our children were in grade school and suddenly awards were granted to everyone no matter their performance.   It wasn’t about ‘winning or losing’, it was whether you showed up.

As all things do in this chaotic society, the pendulum swung so far left, the clock stopped working.

Other countries do not follow this model.  In fact, Germany follows a more purist version of Communism by having the government decide what each student is qualified to do based on their exams at a young age. Once this decision is determined, the child is pushed through his formative education accordingly.  Some are allowed to go to college, others to trade school, and still others are provided simply labor employment – as pre-determined by the Bundestat.

When Russia was Communist, Germany and the US were quite vocal in their denunciation.  And then the shift, the tectonic shift occurred and subtly a New Order was imposed.  So subtle that most didn’t even notice – until it was too late.

We wonder why our country continues to fall in marks, why our youth can’t get jobs, why we don’t excel as compared to even India and China…   Aghast, we have determined that it must be because we need more tolerance, more equality, more safe spaces, more condemnation of excelling, less distinction, less accolade, less…

There is a contingent of home schoolers in the US that have revolted.   And interestingly, the statistics show they excel better than public schoolers, more quickly, younger, and with 1/10 of the cost…

In Germany homeschooling is a crime punishable by jail and fines.

Why?  Because it circumvents the Order, it gives a child choice, it creates dreams, it opens doors.  And those attributes are considered a threat to the “International System of Norms”, aka, the New Order, The New World Order.

This Order advocates a shift of power, not naturally, but irrationally demanded and chaotically created.

The Bible is rather specific that God is Order, and thus, by default, chaos is evil, is sin.

When we hear the depravity from the tongues of Hollywood arrogance, I think most of us are saddened, more than angered, because we see how far they have strayed, how vile is their walk, and how defamed is their soul.   And as the Swamp is cleared more each day, we see that their defamation comes from their sins – the mirror.

And so as we watch the unfolding of the very imperfect Trump, I think it is worthy to note, that his agenda, his heart, in all that is Trump, is working toward the benefit of anti-Communism, and the freeing of an enslave nation.

 

US Trade Deficit: Began absolute tanking in 1992.  The Billy Years.

As of 2009, US school performance lagged in 29thplace behind Latvia, Korea, Brazil and Chile…

Only 14-15% of US students even enroll to college

It is projected that the cost of a US MBA will rise by 400% between now and 2021.

Since 1980, the cost of one year of college in the US has risen by 600%.

Wile looking’ at the value added of a college education in the US, the statistics show a declining curve.

The bottom line is a system that is rapidly nearing complete implosion, while advocating for greater implosion…   It is such a disservice to our youth and yet, the same Hollywooders and Politicians who create this chaos, do have an agenda.  But it isn’t the benefit of our next generation, it is the systemic fall of society in the US and the EU so as to reinvent Communism as the ‘savior’.
