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.
