Germany is defending the need for NATO in order to defend the EU democracies against a Russian invasion. Although Russia has given no intelligencia impression of any desire to attack the EU, the narrative serves a purpose.
Germany and her counterparts do not want to foot the defense bill, and given NATO and the UN have been subsidized by the US for decades, it serves a financial purpose rather than a defense purpose.
In that vein, Germany is also defying the Russian sanctions to punish the evil Putin by opening up a Mercedes car plant near Moscow. The hypocrisy couldn’t be more abject. Praising the German-Russian partnership, Germany’s Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy, Peter Altmaier said that he saw great potential for future cooperation with Russia despite “political differences.”
Despite Merkel attempting to justify the trade move, the fact remains, it is all about money. Trade between Russia and Germany amounts to roughly 62billion Euro annually. The farce of sanctions is thus defined. It is a political move to create the appearance of doing something to appease constituents who have been led to believe a demonizing fake media agenda.
Cuba. No different. Despite levying sanctions for decades to oppose the communist regime, tourism continues to be a source of – money. Canada is the largest source of tourism revenue, US is second and Germany is third. Italy, France, Spain, the UK and even Russia enjoy the pristine beaches. But a large sector of the tourism is actually health related given that the government shifted a tremendous amount of funds to that sector following the sanctions. While doctors make less than waiters, their education and drive to cure rather than medicate is a sought after industry.
Germany sought to side-step the Iran sanctions in order to create a trade bolster to their economy. And now Venezuela is finding itself in the middle of a power struggle from outside countries as the frenzy to capitalize on a collapsed economy provides huge potential to make money.
Syria is a case in point. Create a fake war. Destroy an entire country. And then vie for the contracts to rebuild, create a new economy, and walk away with a flush wallet. If a country’s government is not willing to board that plane, the country stands to become the next victim.
Citizens will protest, citizens will cry foul, but in the end, that foul is what supports their continued luxuries and necessities.
Until a new mental acumen can devise a way to deviate from this system that has been in play since the beginning of time, we will be subject to its consequences. Until this layer of global Swampland can be eradicated, they will continue to reap the rewards their inherent greed demands. The mindset is always – no matter what a person has, it is never enough. A millionaire wants to be a billionaire, and a billionaire wants to rule the world because billions will buy such. Greed, boredom, and a bizarre belief that the pawns within this world are there to protect and die for the Queen, remains the monarchial mentality that was and is and is to be.
Until – we say – no.
Merkel is simply looking for a means to prop up a cracking economy in order to give the appearance she is Germany when in fact she is the same Merkel that destroyed Germany. In her last and final days before resigning, her legacy is at stake, her honor must be upheld, and respect must be reattained. By any means.
Germany has historically been the instigator of our worst global wars – always within the guise of propping up a cracked economy.
41BC, after the assassination of Julius Caesar, the Roman empire went through explosive growth. Why?
Caesar’s hand-picked successor was his nephew, Octavian. As most school children learn, Octavian attacked the renegade general Marc Antony, main squeeze of Cleopatra, took control of northern Africa and expanded his empire. But why was Egypt so important?
Octavian was named Augustus in 37BC,
but in that year, Rome had already sent 100 ships to the Red Sea. The Red Sea lanes gave the Romans a shortcut to the Arabian sea, Indian ocean and the Silk Road.
Silk wasn’t the only thing Rome imported from Asia,
though it was probably the most important. They also imported chemicals, (fragrances, embalming fluids, etc.) spices, ivory but most critical to Rome’s armies, steel.
For something to be important as an import, it must be either not available or expensive in the importer’s country, and this was especially true of silk and steel. To be sure, the Romans had silk, but to the Chinese, silk was the basis of much of their economy. After 2,000 years of minute advancements, they had refined the manufacturing process to the point where hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of Chinese laborers were cranking out thousands of tons per year of extremely high-quality fabric that no one else in the world could replicate.
In steel, the process was even more acute.
Roman steel was largely wrought iron, which is a low carbon form, molded into shape by heating and beating. Its low carbon content made it weak, heavy and brittle. Chinese steel could be cast into forms that were flexible, lighter and did not as easily break.
For the Romans, though, what was most important was not steel or silk, but something hardly mentioned in the texts. Branch banking.
To an empire, what you want is not important; what’s important is what you can buy. Rome could never have conquered China and taken its silk and steel. They had to buy it and to do that; they had to not only have money but move it.
Regardless of how powerful a country is, shipping gold across the seas is dangerous and expensive. The Romans, like the Greeks and Jews, solved this by using their temples as banks. Banks took in deposits and issued notes, promises written on paper in lieu of gold. If a person wanted or needed gold, they could have it, just as one who needs cash can get it from a bank, but if they don’t need it, it stays in the bank in their account. This meant the Romans did not need to continually ship gold to finance trade or construction, two things that require large amounts of money.
The Romans protected their temples with armies,
which was why locals kept their money there, but the real beauty of the steel and silk trade was Rome’s ability to tax it. The import taxes on steel and silk were as high as 25%, and the cost of these in the empire was staggering. It’s been estimated that a single bolt of Chinese silk may have cost the equivalent of 8 years of Roman wages. This gave the Romans the ability to create something that didn’t exist in 37BC. A standing army financed by wages and not plunder. Plunder may be a cheap way to finance a war, but you must keep finding new plunder.
In many ways, Bill Clinton, unwittingly, became the Octavian of his time…
though Octavian was a general and Clinton a draft dodger. Clinton’s claim to fame, (or infamy, as it may turn out) was to set the banks free. By eliminating Glass-Steagall and changing banking regulations, he set in motion a chain of events that led us to where we are today. A nation with a mammoth military financed through taxing and borrowing against trade.
Is this good or bad for America?
Like the weather, this is impossible to predict. On the one hand, the US has borrowed rivers of money. On the other, that river has bought us quite a lot. Aside from too many houses too many bars and too many malls, America has something else no one seems to notice. A gargantuan university system.
In Roman times, all roads led to Rome. The same is true here. 9 of the top 10 universities in the world and 35 of the top 50 are in the USA. Of course, you can get an education from a book, but that’s hardly the point.
A few years back, I lived inside the triangle engulfed by three universities, Harvard, MIT, and Tufts.
If you think of these institutions as places you get an education, you’re missing half the story. Harvard college is small, but its graduate school is enormous. The same is true of MIT and Tufts. The level of research going on in this triangle is staggering, and if you think it’s because of “American exceptionalism,” think again. The top students in these universities, as well as many of the professors, are from nearly every country on earth. As my daughter aptly put it when I asked her how many of her classmates in chemistry class at Wellesley were American, she said, “Just me and Eileen.”
To put this in its true perspective, America has 1,400 colleges and universities. The amount of money flowing through is probably higher than the GDP of 80% of the world’s nations. The amount of research being produced is hard to fathom, much less control.
Our Universities may be on the cusp of replacing what for 20,000 years has defined nations. Resources.
They are close to making oil obsolete. The effect on the USA is hard to fathom. Even though the price of computing has fallen by a factor of 3,000 in the last 20 years, the prices of oil and coal, on inflation-adjusted terms, have barely budged in the last 80 years. As Bill Gates once said, if the cost of transportation fell as fast as the cost of computing, you’d be able to buy a jet for what it used to cost for a neck-tie.
This has led to a one to one relationship between energy use and GDP growth. Imagine if this ratio changed by a factor of not 3,000, but just two. Imagine going from using 100 million barrels per day of oil to 50 million? It’s almost impossible to fathom. An electric car uses one-fifth the fossil fuel a gas or diesel powered auto uses. The US has 250 million vehicles!
The same is true of farmland, copper, and steel. We may be within a couple of decades of a family being able to produce almost everything they need to eat in their basements using as much energy as is created by a couple of hours on an exercise bike. In just the last two years, seed technology has raised some crop yields by 20% using the same soil and less fertilizer. Vegetables can already be grown in warehouses and can compete on a price basis with those shipped in from Mexico and sold in Walmart.
We’re close to being able to diagnose illnesses with a cell phone and where you can make love with your spouse that is 3,000 miles away in a hotel bed. We’re a decade away from being able to sit in a room and have a conversation with Einstein and your long-deceased grandmother.
Why is this important? For all of our history, the world has been ruled by empires, from the Romans to the Ottomans, the Han to the Ming, the British Empire to the USA. Imagine a world where everything you need is at your fingertips. Imagine a world where Empires no longer matter.
Is the USA declining, or, as in the case of Dinosaurs, are we becoming smaller and more sustainable?
Germany continues its attempt to vilify Trump while treading lightly as they dip their pinky toes into a possible recession at the making of their Socialist, Communist government.
The Socialist liberals don’t like Trump’s wall, they hailed Obama’s ‘fence wall’, which was erected for the same purpose, but side with Pelosi in regard to the anti-humanitarianism a wall evokes. Of course, they did nothing about the Berlin Wall which was created as a prison to keep people in – as opposed to keeping illegals – out. It was the US under Reagan that brokered the fall of the Berlin Wall to allow free access among nationalized Germans.
But it isn’t about the wall, it isn’t about humanitarianism, it is about demonizing Trump in light of the reformed Socialist failure toward globalization with Germany at the helm.
Theresa May has informed her closest advisor that she will be resigning this summer two years early amidst the debacle of failing to bring about an organized BREXIT negotiation. Of course, she was the pawn of all pawns in this chess game, expendable, her dignity and respect in an utterly deplorable shambles. Perhaps she went into this fusion of chaos with ‘eyes wide shut’, but I doubt it, and if she had, certainly she is leaving having completely disgraced the UK and herself, while quite possibly creating a spectacular ‘deplorable’ Fall. Without shame, without compassion or a voice for her people, her legacy will be an engraving on her headstone, and Les Miserables may be invoked.
Merkel too is likely to leave amidst a deplorable escalation of crime, lacking negotiating tacticals, and an economy that is nose diving radically. But perhaps that is – the game for the EU. An economy, a society, must be destroyed before one can truly rule it within a globalized fashion of dictatorship – Hitler was Germany’s own example. Bringing down the stalwarts; France, Germany and the UK, would spiral the entire EU aligned countries.
Sweden’s Deputy Prime Minister, Wallstrom, a self declared ‘feminist’, serves the criminals at the expense of her own women and girls, leaving them without support or retribution in a land that has spiraled into the soulless depths of rape, assault, bombs, fires, and crime.
These are the women of the EU. These are the female models – the humanitarians?
Germany’s Deutsche Welle media outlet, a government catered institution much like the Washington Post, prints scathing opinions and articles defiantly anti-Trump while embracing the likes of Pelosi, who would seemingly be wishing, ‘mother may I please’ become President of the US at the ripe age of 80.
Today, DW’s US correspondent, Michael Knigge, would have the audacity to site an argument against Trump declaring a state of emergency to fund the wall given that ‘the US has been in a perpetual state of emergency’ since 1979, which is actually a story drudged up in 2014 during Obama’s reign of terror. Of course the fact that Germany was the causal force that took the globe into WWI and WWII seems to elude this author. Perhaps we should delve into the Bolshevik revolution instigated by Germans seeking to overthrow the Russian Monarchy. Or the 500 year long Germanic invasions of the Roman Empire?
Knigge goes on to ‘ad nauseum’ Pelosify himself as being in alignment with this liberal Socialist who has seemingly garnered a wealth of over $200 million through self-seeking contracts given to her husband, a VISA scam, and insider trading tactics used by herself and infinite other politicians to exploit the system and line their pockets.
In essence, Most, if not all, of Trump’s most vicious critics are angry because he is winning, because their tight apple-cart just got ransacked and dumped, because in all their infinite glory representing an army of 100,000, they still can’t beat one man – Trump!
Germany and France have announced joint plans to build a, as in one, fighter jet, in their ‘ambitious new defense strategy’. This one jet may be ready within – two years… or more because first they have to create a ‘concept study for a shared air combat system’, and the study may require two years to complete.
The construction for this fighter jet is a combined effort between Germany’s Airbus and France’s Dassault although funding is an issue and the respective governments are looking for outside ante’s. Airbus’ military chief, Fernando Alonso, has stated that simply buying a bunch of US made F35’s would be a much less expensive alternative but such a purchase would greatly impact Europe’s sovereignty. What?
Suddenly, it would appear that Europe has decided it will adopt the anti-Trump agenda of sovereignty – they just won’t announce it to the people. In fact, the cost of this monstrosity unmanned fighter jet has also been kept under wraps given the tenuous budgets of France and Germany are already squeezed by trade issues and immigration welfare.
What they have announced is a $75 million budget to be shared by Dassault and Airbus to develop the ‘architecture and manufacturing structure’ for the project. Essentially, it is a committee fee that may or may not determine if the project is even feasible. And in essence, the spending does little to nothing to advance Europe’s military, and may be a smoke screen or deflection from the fact that their NATO ante remains in the twalette. Previous collaborations have proven quite embarrassing as differing opinions created vast disparities and eventually entire projects crumbled with nothing to show for the $$$$.
Of course, this time will be different.
While Macron made the demand that the venture not include bidding from US Lockheed Martin in order to maintain ‘sovereign rule’, the fighter jet will be fitted with US Nuclear Bombs. So I guess sovereign only means – sometimes.
But they need to do something given their defense ministers have whispered the fact that most of their current inventory is obsolete or in dire need of costly repairs.
While Trump demanded that the EU countries ante up their fair share of military spending per the NATO Agreement, they have been reluctant.
NATO was created to defend European countries from a “Russia invasion”. Canada, Turkey and the US came on board after the fact. Russia came aboard briefly but NATO ejected them after the Ukraine coup. Like a good deal of the Federal government, NATO has become a nonessential burgeoning expense propped up by the US and a handful of EU countries to conduct military exercises. While NATO has been an alliance in Afghanistan, and the first Gulf War, it is now mostly relegated to ‘protecting civilians in north Africa’. Why? Why is NATO protecting countries that aren’t a part of NATO?
A quick perusal of the NATO site indicates their current projects to be a handful of meetings, shaking hands, and discussing security while taking jaunts to Romania, Slovakia, Macedonia, Kosovo, London and Brussels. Of course no organization would be complete without creating a sub-feature that addresses ‘equality for women’, as in NATO is now a sponsor for protecting women’s rights. AH!
Of course the blatantly obvious question in all this military discussion is why are Germany and France creating their own military instead of anteing up their fair share for NATO? Unless they too believe that NATO has become superfluous.
Time Magazine has an answer: Their justification for the fair share debacle is because the 2% of GDP is simply a ‘guideline’, not mandatory. And therefore, Germany, France and most of the EU are within their right to give NATO money – or not, in any denomination they feel like. Therefore if a country, such as the US, decided to ante nothing, we would be within that same ‘guideline’ rule. By George I’ve GOT IT!
It is the same rule that the Paris Climate Accord created, i.e., ‘a guideline’ that neither Germany or France have ever met, and don’t intend to meet in the near future, although a 30 year agenda sounds good because Merkel and Macron will be long gone by then sitting on a beach drinking Mai Tai’s.
I wonder if the $39 billion BREXIT bill is a ‘guideline’? Given that contracts are not really binding, and $$$ aren’t really available, and rules aren’t really governable? And organizations are really superfluous… conducting occasional meetings, flying hither and there… while Kosovo ‘peacekeepers’ are really volunteers, but they are multi-ethnic, lightly armed, professional and support the UN. But Kosovo is not a member of NATO, so why is NATO even there? I ramble.
Bottom line, France and Germany are trying to give the impression they are doing something constructive toward building a military when in fact what they have is completely unusable, would offer no protection to the people, and they don’t have the money to create a military defense – so instead, they have created a committee to evaluate the construction of a jet and held lots of photo ops to impress the media with a proposal/guideline of a jet that is way too expensive, and they can’t afford.
The Davos Summit or World Economic Forum, is nearly over and they are coming away with some major accomplishments as they prepare to board their Gulf Stream jets and jettison away into the swirl of yellow plume skies…
What have they accomplished so far?
Nothing. They just talked the talk while ignoring the walk and readied to leave in a surge of CO2 pollution as their 1500 jets blazoned the skies. It was no different than the G-20 Summit, the G-8 Summit, The Paris Accord Summit, the NATO Summit, the Healthcare for all Summit, The Inspire Summit, the BRICS Summit and the 100+ other annual Summits that are really about a bunch of back slapping politicians, Hollywood actors and self-proclaimed activists who want to hear themselves speak. Yes – celebrities are invited to attend because the Summit awards artists (actors and musicians) the Crystal Award. Actors describe their ‘vision of the world’ because of course theirs is pre-eminent. It has devolved into a Summit of fantasyland narcissists and uber elite narcissists discussing what is best for their subjects, The People. How droll.
In November 2018, there were no less than 25 separate ‘Summits’, in October there were 21, you get the drift… These Summits have become a forum for self grandizing. Do we really believe that the likes of Matt Damon and Cate Blanchett should decide world policies?
Merkel managed to slam Trump and the Deplorables while sending her Foreign Minister to plead with Trump to be like Obama, pretty please. And Soros, who is an annual attendee, gave a scathing speech about China and XI Jinping while continuing his criticism of Facebook and Google – two major operatives of – Soros. Soros is furious with Jinping because China continues to move away from his open society initiative toward a more sovereign nation and that is cause for a scurrilous spiel of expletive laced spew!
While the media in the UK and US was cryptic in their reference to President Trump’s nonattendance, Macron, Lavrov, Xi Jinping and Theresa May were all absent as well. Each sited their own reasoning, which amounted to resolving issues at home.
What Soros offered was a new and improved United Nations that would rule the world under the tenants of his open society premise instead. He emphasized repressive regimes with IT monopolies that his open society could not ‘destroy’ so as to initiate his plan to infiltrate his own monopolies (Facebook and Google) which espoused his ideals and rules of order and chaos.
But Soros anger may have a core point to his blistering, blustering anger. According to Zero Hedge, of the 12 biggest Billionaires in attendance, Soros was the only one to have secured a net lost in the last ten years amounting to – 61%. And he’s peeved! Everyone else saw their wealth expand exponentially including the top tier Zuckerberg at 1853%, Marc Benioff at 829% and Steven Schwarzman at 486%.
The venue menu included a Caesar salad for a mere $48, a club sandwich for $42.50, and a hamburger for $41. But hey, given that state taxpayers foot the bill… nyeh.
At the end of it all, everyone goes back to their respective country, yawns, and continues along the same path they were on the previous week, the previous month and previous years as though nothing has changed. Those that desperately want globalization return home to push – globalization, and those that don’t, push sovereignty. It is a waste of time, money and pollutants.
And yet they continue ad nauseum each and every year.
I applaud Trump for shrugging it off.
So what happened at the 2018 Summit – a Year in Reflection?
Soros stated that Trump wanted to create a mafia state. Soros blasts Social Media giants because they didn’t garner him the US election as he demanded. Dhragi hits out on Trump comments on the dollar. Soros tells the EU they should prop up Africa’s economy. Soros hits out on China and Russia totalitarianism. Soros says Trump is a temporary phenomena who will disappear in 2020. Soros says the survival of the world is at stake because of Jinping and Trump.
Do you see a pattern… help me please! The entire summary of the summit was about what ‘Soros Said’.
And some pundit, Jennifer Jacobs, a White House spokesperson for Bloomberg, is aghast because Trump dared to schmooze upwards of 15 company executives while in attendance. I mean, isn’t that what everyone – does?
The bottom line. Soros speeches indicate he is deathly afraid of Jinping and Trump – not even Putin was awarded the typical demonization reprimand. What is most telling is the fact that Soros unabated fear would seem to highlight the fact that he has lost his ju-ju (to borrow a word from a friend), and he is sliding into obscurity and failure. I imagine for a man of Soros character, failure is far worse than Hell.
The Socialist block of the EU is descending into complete chaos, London, France, Germany are seeing unprecedented riots and the respective governments have no idea what to do! Macron did nothing, then he gave, in, now he thinks that in order to show ‘strength’ he must fight the yellow vest movement. And stupidity reigns as he has lost complete control of his country.
In a speech to the French people, Macron offered no solutions, and merely framed a slew of empty words: “We can do better, and must do better”, “I believe in us”, “Truth, dignity and hope”… But as he spoke the rhetoric glanced with the impact of a spitball, protests continued unabated, and 150,000 police and security were deployed to try and quell the immense volume of discontent. MERDE! Police have been caught on video punching demonstrators, clubbing them, and kicking them on the ground.
Polls indicate Macron now has a disapproval ranking of 80%, and calls for him to step down have gone viral. In the midst of the onslaught, France’s economy will likely suffer incredible economic hardships as tourism is at a standstill and businesses scurry to defend their wares. Looting is rampant, and vandalism is spiking fears that a civil unrest could devolve the country into chaos and bankruptcy.
France’s government has not recorded a positive spending budget since 1970. Since 2002, government health spending has doubled. Government spending is roughly 1.29 trillion Euros per year – $1.5 trillion. The US has five times as many people as France and spends four times as much per person for government expenditures. As a percentage of GDP, France’s military spending is a full percentage point below the US at 2.3. As a percentage of total world spending, France’s military spending is 1/10ththat of the US. The discrepancies are enormous. If the US were to stop footing the bill for the EU countries through NATO, the budget deficit of France would be crippled.
Germany is even worse. Their military spending is a mere 7% of what the US pays. Yet Germany’s population is 24% that of the US. The US picks up 35% of the total world expenditure for military, basically supporting 28 EU member states, Australia, Canada and Japan.
If the US relegated NATO spending to the countries it defends, and simply quashed our share completely, the redistribution to our military would be roughly $310million. Total economic and military assistance to other countries is roughly $45 billion with Afghanistan, Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and The West Bank receiving the bulk of the shares.
If the US became sovereign in its truest sense, we would have at our disposal $45.3 billion additional funds that could be allocated toward military personal salaries, housing, and medical care. If all the funds went to active military personnel, that would provide each one with an additional $35,000 per year.
When European governments cry foul on Trump, when they ridicule and malign him, they stand to create an irreversible economic spiral for themselves should Trump decide to revoke their subsidies. Our allies are not necessarily – our friends.
But then, what we are witnessing is that these governments are not representing their people, they are fake, they are props, likely put in office with the help of voter fraud.
The gender pay gap in France remains unchanged since 2000. Wealth inequality in France shows an constant increase for the top 1% and 10%, despite media notions that France is a country of equality. While their education spending is a large portion of the government budget, the disparity rises as the proportion spent on University education far exceeds formative education, and thus the top tier benefit from those expenditures.
The youth unemployment rate in France is 21.5%. By comparison, the youth unemployment rate in the US is roughly 8%.
Perspective: The minimum wage is France is degraded by age. Standing at roughly $11.5 per hour, for those between the ages of 15 and 16 it is 20% less, and for those 17 to 18 it is 10% less. An average workweek is 35 hours – on a monthly basis their earning power is 12.5% less. The average monthly take-home salary in the US is 42.67% higher than in France. The price of buying real estate is 400% higher – in France.
Taxes in France are exceptionally high. A self employed person can expect to fork over 70% of their income in taxes at the base level. Employees pay 22% into Social Security, deductions and exemptions are significantly less available, the top tier tax rate is 45% and applies to anyone making over 152,260euro. They have local taxes, residence taxes, land tax, professional tax, gift tax, inheritance tax, income tax surcharges, wealth tax, VAT tax (20%), capital gains tax, property tax, and the infamous petroleum tax.
And still – despite paying little for their military, which consumes over15% of the US budget, France operates on a budget deficit and has for the last 50 years. I think Ocasio-Cortez would fit right in.
I am not a ‘fan’ of Facebook, but I have a Facebook presence. I am not a ‘fan’ of Zuckerberg, but I have a feeling he is the scape goat, the fool, set up by those that want irrational control over all media. Who owns what?
Carlos Slim, a Mexican business magnate who was once ranked the number 1 richest man in the world is majority owner of The New York Times. Today he is worth $59.2 billion and assets include;education, health care, industrial manufacturing, transportation, real estate, media, energy, hospitality, entertainment, high-technology, retail, sports and financial services. He accounts for 40% of the listings on the Mexican Stock Exchange,
The Publisher for the NYT is the son of Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, of Ashkenazi Jewish descent whose net worth is estimated to be roughly $16-$20 million.
The senior Opinion Editor is James Bennet, brother to Colorado Democratic Senator, Michael Bennet, and former editor for The Atlantic, a Liberal left-wing magazine On July 28, 2017, The Atlantic announced that multi-billionaire investor and philanthropist Laurene Powell Jobs, the widow of Steve Jobs of Apple, had acquired majority ownership. When he died, Steve Jobs net worth was $11 billion.
Then there is the greedy, egocentric, deceptive Washington Post, owned by Amazon’s Bezos, The Economist, owned by The Rothschilds, CNN which is owned by Ted Turner, net worth $2.2 billion. And Fox which is majority owned by the Murdoch Brothers – critically Liberal in their personal views.
The UK is releasing ‘internal documents’ that they ‘acquired’ from Facebook revealing so less than legal scenarios that have prompted many “Liberals” to call for Zuckerberg’s resignation.
And therein lies the rub. The call is being made predominantly by Liberals and Republican whiners that attempt to disguise their Liberal streak, Graham, Flake, etc… for Zuckerberg to step down. And so, when the call is Liberal it bears scrutiny.
Knowing the tactics that were just unveiled regarding the take down of Roy Moore thru planted “Fake” Russian Bots by New Knowledge, the same New Knowledge that Mueller hired as a ‘startup’ to provide his evidence on the Russian collusion with Trump – that failed, one might see a pattern of deception – and it ain’t Trump.
A number of the ‘internal document’ releases seem to be based out of the UK. The Guardian, the BBC, all have access to these documents, the same UK that created the Trump Dossier that has now been unveiled to be a complete and utter fabrication at the hands of – Clinton.
The UK is more and more coming to the head as a core disruptor, a core instigator, and a core assassinator on behest of the shadows that spill into the Clinton, Obama, Rothschild court.
This does not mean Zuckerberg is a ‘victim’, it means he chose the side of evil, laid down in their bed, and is now being mauled by the den of Lions. Instead of switching sides, he is desperately seeking their approval by further manipulating and trespassing into zones of front and center fraud and corruption.
There is always a back story, an agenda. In the face of Facebook, someone is desperately seeking a means of destroying Zuckerberg so as to control his more than 2 billion users. More power than ANY other media conglomerate today. By comparison, the New York Times reaching roughly 3 million digitally. The Washington Post has roughly 500,000 subscribers with virtually no digital presence. The Economist has an average weekly circulation of 1.5 million. No other outlet, with the exception of Facebook has an audience in the billions.
It thus becomes an essential entity to control outside of the pawn – Zuckerberg. He is – going down. There is little to dissuade that evolution. Of course, sitting on his air hose could ultimately prove disastrous as he likely has information that could put away everyone for eternity and beyond.
While Zuckerberg has absolutely no intention of ‘resigning’, his family is likely at stake, and the witches brew is boiling.
Trump has time and again shown an ability to thwart, to rise above, to work behind the scenes in so many ways that I find it hard to believe that his acumen is not absolutely perfectly on target. While watching the destruction of Facebook, and their shift of majority users from the US to India, perhaps their political edge in election meddling in the US, will be lost by 2020 and the entire destruction of the man – Zuckerberg, a worthless endeavor.
But then, we constantly see, they don’t really care.
More clarity into the UN Climate Change Pact has been revealed – perhaps somewhat inadvertently by Deutsche Welle. For all intents and purposes, Africa has already fallen. China, the EU and to a lesser extent the US have taken over the five largest cities including; Congo’s Kinshasa, Nigeria’s Lagos, Egypt’s Cairo, Tanzania’s Dar es Salaam and Angola’s Luanda. According to the EU, these cities face ‘extreme risks’ from climate warming. And funds need to be made available immediately to mitigate the losses that the EU might encounter as they have ramped up business exploitation for over a decade…or two.
Luanda: A valuable port city, the official language is Portuguese. They host a Chinese community, a Latin American community and of course, a sizable Portuguese community. While 53% of locals live in poverty, lack clean drinking water, have limited electricity, and live in squalor housing, luxury construction for the wealthy is booming! The government has solicited a Chinese firm to build what they call ‘social housing’. The 53% slum population will be removed from the streets and housed in these facilities so that additional renovation, infrastructure and luxury housing construction can continue for the wealthy expatriates.
Kinshasa: Located along the second largest river in Africa, The Congo, primary language is – French. Affluent residential and commercial areas and three universities are flanked by an ever shifting slum community. Every year, as wealthy development inside the city continues unabated, the slums are shifted to the outer periphery. The UN has a headquarters in Kinshasa and as recently as 2016 deployed ‘peacekeeping troops’ to stabilize unrest. NGO’s play a prominent role in the local government, including the Belgium Development Agency. China has an $8.5 billion loan outstanding for infrastructure development. Corruption is rampant, poverty is rife, and war is a constant – to eliminate the undesirables and allow room for the new wealth.
Dar es Salaam: The city experienced one of Africa’s fastest urbanization rates as businesses were opened and prospered, growth in the construction sector with multi-story building, bridges and roads. Tanzanian Banks headquartered in the city started to run more proper,and the Dar es Salaam stock exchange expanded. The Harbor proved to be the most important in Tanzania and prominent for entrepot trade with landlocked countries like eastern Rwanda, Burundi and Zambia. The CBD skyline hosts tall buildings, among them the 35-floor PSPF Tower, finished in 2015, and the TanzaniaPorts Authority(TPA) Tower, currently under construction. Diplomats and expatriates revel in the white sands of Oysterbay and Coco Beach. According to the UN, 70% of locals live in slums. But not to worry, with squash courts, white sand beaches, a darts club, golf, soccer and fitness clubs throughout the wealthier sectors, the city is insulated from the riff raff.
Lagos: 2/3 of the cities population live in slums…
Do you see the pattern yet? Need I say more?
In other words, Africa has been systematically developed by China and the EU for a wealthy expatriate contingent. That contingent desires better infrastructure, water, power, and retail in order to sustain their lifestyle. The local population will ultimately be housed in barracks where they will not defray the views, and will be available for labor at the behest of the lords and ladies. These countries all host a largess youth population averaging over 50% of the entire population, making the labor force more valuable. They have a huge emigration population residing in the US, EU, and UK, while the wealthier residents that live in these cities come from the US, the UK, and the EU.
This is – the shift.
Macron, Merkel and May allow unlimited migrants to take over their flailing countries, while their own wealthy emigrate to Africa and then demand that their cities and townships meet the standards to which they are accustomed while providing a largess slave labor force at their disposal. All, provided for via the Climate Change, Global Warming Hoax demanding $100 billion annually to fund – their colossal compounds in the continent most affected by global warming – Africa.
They have sold their countries, their people, to the ravages of immigrant terrorists while moving to the same continent that the immigrants are fleeing. Albeit with a purse of $100 billion paid for by you – and – I. Sure, open the borders to more illegal ravaging. The end game has been in play for possibly two or three decades. The resources, the climate, the beaches, were always the draw. But how to rid these lavish sultan cities of the scourge?
And if you thought this was a ‘white supremacy’ racist agenda, think again… Obama.
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.
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!
