France Digital Tariff…er Tax Blunder

France has stated that it will begin charging a 3% digital tax which will be implemented within 21 days and apply retroactively to January 1, 2019.  While Trump has issued a statement calling for a retaliatory tax on French wine, the tech industry seems eerily quiet. Why?

The tax is designed to specifically target online advertising, online intermediary activities, and the sale of user data.   A study conducted by Deloitte reveals that the reason the techs don’t care is because they will absorb just 5% of the 3%, consumers will pick up 55% and businesses will bear 40%.

So once again, the income redistribution will target consumers and small businesses, not billion dollar tech companies. They yawn.

For France alone they expect to rake in roughly $550 million annually which will be deposited into the government coffers along with their VAT tax, income tax, corporate tax, gas tax, wealth tax, stamp tax, professional tax, residence tax, local tax, payroll tax, gift tax, and land tax.

Interestingly, the amount of tariff/tax imposed on tech companies will likely equal the lost increase in gas tax that caused rioting in the streets for months.

Trump’s response is to tax French wine. The US imports roughly $2.1 billion annually and exports about $435 million.   Of course, Macron and his finance minister are completely incensed that we would even consider such a measure claiming they are imposing a tax, and Trump would be imposing a tariff. It would seem, they don’t understand a tariff by definition is a ‘Tax’.   Vive la France.

So what is really going on?

France’s budget deficit is slated to reach 3.4% of GDP next year, which overshoots the EU limit of 3%. But then France has not had a balanced budget since 1974. The reason for the deficit – France is considered a welfare state, thus Health care, pensions, assistance programs, and education account for the repeated inability to balance.

According to the EU rules that nobody abides by, a country’s debt ratio should not exceed 60%. France’s is 99%.   The consequence? Nothing. The EU notoriously establishes rules but few countries take them seriously and haven’t for decades. It is no different than the Paris Climate Accord wherein the convenient wording is stipulated as “guidelines”. Thus everyone can sign it, but no one is obligated to actually adhere to anything – including Germany.

These inconsistencies are part of the reasoning for BREXIT.   The European Union created a standard that all member countries are to abide by, and yet most simply don’t and haven’t since it’s formation. The Commission is thus another useless government authority collecting wages, accumulating pensions, and doing – nothing.

The companies that will be hit by this newly imposed 3% tariff include: Google, Amazon, Apple, and Facebook. Amazon has stated they applaud the Trump administration for defending fair trade.   The others have given no comment.

While the EU Commission had recently ruled down such a tax, Macron defends his stance stating that France is a sovereign nation and can do whatever it wants.   In addition he stated that between ‘allies’, “we can and we must resolve our disputes without resorting to threats”.

WHAT?

Boris Johnson/Trump Effect: Mad as a Hatter!

With the announcement that Boris Johnson will replace the wholly inept Swamper, Theresa May, the MSM is running in circles trying to redirect from what they already know is about to swallow the UK  – the Trump effect.   While the media act as though Johnson has no clue what he’s stepped into regarding BREXIT, crime, fraud, a failing NHS, etc… they seem oblivious to that fact that Johnson ran for office knowing quite well everything he was facing – and – despite everything he was facing!

Because, like Trump, he wants to FIXIT.

MI6 is just as corrupt as the FBI and CIA under Clinton, Bush and Obama.   It has been a long haul of realizing the purity of evil that exists within these two countries power system.  The ‘conspiracy’ is quite real, and the roof is being blown.   Johnson’s first move?  Clean out the Cabinet.  Get rid of the saucers, and lay down some good old fashioned patriots.  Half the cabinet either left or were fired.

Germany has voiced mixed reviews.  The newly appointed EU Commission President, Ursula Von Der Leyen, has puckered a stiff smile while stating that she/the Commission will not accept any deal regarding BREXIT.  NO one was surprised.

Her own rather bizarre rise in the political arena is a bit unusual given her degree is medical and her dissertation was tainted with multiple charges of plagiarism.

But the inevitable jokes and memes began the moment Johnson took charge.   Ridicule and blasphemy would appear to be the new norm for anyone left of right.   There are no longer boundaries or filters to rein in the donkeys.   Coined by Thomas Nast in his comical portrayal of all things political, the Donkey invariably represented the Ass, the Democrat Party. And it stuck.

You know Johnson’s the right choice when the MSM goes ballistic.   He has pledged a verified BREXIT, with or without a deal, he really doesn’t care.   And the faltering NHS system of nationalized healthcare is in the twalette.  Shortage of doctors, shortage of nurses, shortage of equipment, shortages, as the privatized portion of healthcare has grown by leaps.

While Johnson’s personal life may be blustery and a bit ahem, no one cares.   Focusing on that part of the man has given him the gavel and he is eager to be inline with Trump.  His jokes are tawdry, his humor conventionally British dry, and he has no problem escaping the politically correct humdrum.   And right now, draining the UK Swamp is at the top of the axis.

What the Trump-Johnson team will look like is anyone’s guess, but having a true ally will likely reinstate a hefty trade relationship that has blimped along for decades with the US representing a mere 13% of UK exports.  Of the 54.2% trade within Europe, Germany’s portion has held at just under 10%.   Germany, the US, and China, respectively represent the largest source of UK imports.  But a no-deal BREXIT could easily swamp the levees of change.

Johnson has also revealed that he envisions closer ties with Russia whose alliance could be the final pearl in the oyster as the Swamp is exceedingly fearful that a US, UK, Russia alliance would most certainly be their demise as the casket would be given a proper salute before being pushed into the ominous black depths of the sea.

Russia collusion memes are likely to hyperventilate the media in the mid term as paper bags are handed to crowds of socialist has-beens.  Feel The Bern!

Italy’s hard right Matteo Salvini, expressed great joy at the prospect of working with Johnson, while like Merkel, Trudeau was relatively glumly polite as the world shifts on its axis of evil and lands squarely on point.

Hollywood, pedophiles, and rapists will no longer run our countries.   And the Mad Hatters will grovel back to the hole where they came from:

“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?”

Russia Stole The EU ELECTIONS? Hardiharhar!

The EU is claiming that Russian friendly social media accounts targeted the EU elections to suppress voter turnout and influence voter preferences by making such grandiose claims as:   1) a decline of western and Christian values in the EU, 2) statements that the corruption scandal that brought down the nationalist party in Austria was the work of Spain and Germany, 3)   highlighting the irrelevance of the European Parliaments powers, and, 4)   unfounded attacks on the EU.

They go on to announce that voter turnout reached a 25 year high.  Odd…

The author(s) of ‘the report’ are never mentioned. But somehow all of the egregious social media statements were considered ‘fake’.   Oddly, that would make me a Russian Bot.   And I am most certainly not.

The social media cited as the sources include; Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, all of which have in place extensive anti-conservative analytics.   Twitter and YouTube have been the latest to suppress any and conservative accounts from gaining any attention, sometimes deleting Tweets without the author even knowing.

The report claims that countries that supported the AfD were particularly targeted by Russian Bots and Trolls given those countries experienced significant gains in nationalist candidates; such as France, Poland and Italy.

But Facebook had already banned all accounts in the EU that it deemed were politically right of center a month before the elections…  Oops.

In other words, if a country actually supports a candidate that is not socialist, that means the people of that country were brainwashed. The NYTimes calls it a DNC Russia hack.

And while gains were made for nationalist and conservative parties, the socialists still control 441 seats out of 701 total, and the communists control 41 seats.  Progress, but not an infiltration.

Jean Claude Juncker, the President of the EU Commission, earns a whopping salary of $36,184 per month = $434,208 annually – not including his insider trade deals. While the PM of Luxembourg, Juncker managed to make his country one of the largest tax havens in the EU, including the pharmaceutical, Glaxo-Smith-Klein, Amazon, and Vodafone. The Luxembourg haven is estimated to be worth over 3-5 trillion Euros. Not bad for a Socialist mentality. And it could be the reason the Socialists continue to claim – this ideology works.

All of this is conjoined under a single term: disinformation. False information intended to mislead and propagandize.

Within that definition such information would include; the Steele/Trump Dossier, New York Times, Washington Post, the DNC, BBC, DW, CNN, CIA, MI5, Google, NBC, Politico, and just about every media outlet on the planet. Because technically, everyone is postulating their opinion –

So why would Russia’s particular ‘disinformation’ be classified differently?

Since 2000, the US has characterized Russia as Authoritarian.   What does that mean?

  1. Limited political pluralism realized with legalistic constraints on the legislaturepolitical parties, and interest groups;
  2. Political legitimacy based upon appeals to emotion, and identification of the regime as a necessary evil to combat enemies of the people, socio-economic underdevelopment, and guerrilla insurgency;
  3. Minimal social mobilization consequent to legalistic constraints, such as political suppression of all anti-regime activities;
  4. Informally defined executive powers, which extend and allow government authority into every sphere of life

These are the core ideologies of the Socialist and Democrat parties across the Globe. Censorship being the most pervasive as all things social media are determined to be ‘disinformation’ if they do not align with the regime of the EU and the Liberals. The Liberal Regime then instates itself as the savior of the people from which all things ‘enemy’.  This would include those who do not align with their respective ideals. And lastly, legalistic constraints are imposed by a slew of NGO’s bent on finding all things a bastion of oppression on – one.

Utilizing the now defunct Soviet Union as an example of authoritarianism, what is not voiced in this historical reference is the fact that the Fall actually occurred with the Russian Revolution wherein the Communist Bolsheviks murdered the monarchy, and therein sustained massive assassinations, murders, and genocide under the tutelage of Marxist Socialism. The same Socialism advocated by the EU, Juncker, and the Liberal parties across the globe today.

Leaders that we have been taught to immortalize, to deify, fall within this advocacy including; Nelson Mandela, Ban Ki Moon, Pope Francis, etc…   That is the true propagandizing, the true ‘disinformation’ that has engulfed our schools, our universities, and our media because the Liberal/Socialist politicians who are the pocket-tools of Banks and Pharma are told what to do, what to say, who to like, and where to spit.

There are a few super-heroes working for The People, Sarah Sanders was a true warrior.

History can be burnt. Truth can be redefined.   But it is undeniable that WWII would never have been won without the aid and massive losses of the Soviet Union.   WWI would never have been won, without the Soviet Union.   I do not purport to support Soviet Russia, any more than I would purport to support Nazi’s, because in essence the Soviets were vying for their own freedom from the suppression brought on by the Socialist/Marxist Bolsheviks that have now become US enemy #1.

Know your history.   Study it well.   The Jesuits.   The Bolsheviks. The Christians who converted to Judaism in order to be money lenders… Don’t be afraid.

The Vatican: Power and Riches

Vatican City is not a member of the EU, not a member of the UN, and not a member of NATO. Yet, according to status granted the Vatican in 1964 as a ‘permanent observer state’, it maintains the authority to influence decisions and recommendations put forth by the UN. The only administration the Holy See is not allowed to perform in the UN is the right to co-sponsor draft decisions or resolutions, and to make points of order or to exercise the right of reply, although it may hold the hand of a member state to do so on its behalf. In some specialized agencies within the UN, the Holy See enjoys full membership status – despite not being a member.

Vatican City is considered a city-state as well as a country, sovereign and subject to International Law.   As a monarchial establishment, in 1983, the Pope unilaterally decided that although Vatican City was referenced as the dominion state for purposes of UN membership, the Holy See represented all Catholics and thus all powers and decisions at the UN reside on his shoulders exclusively. However, the Pope clarified that he may authorize a spokesperson to speak on his behalf at the various conferences and meetings at the UN.

In addition to the UN nonmember membership, The Pope has authority within the: Council of Europe, European Communities, the Organization For Security and Cooperation in Europe, Organization of American States, and the Organization For African Unity.

Although the Holy See and the Vatican vow non-participation in anything outside religious education and human rights, the OSCE is tasked with arms control.   The Organization of American States is involved in political, judicial and economic solutions as well as working to limit conventional weapons. The Council of Europe upholds the ‘rule of law’.   And the European Communities ultimately became the European Commission regulating Coal, Steel, Atomic Energy and all newly acquired adherents, agencies, and interests that the EU Commission afforded itself.

In other words, the Holy See has quite efficiently gained world dominion power while not being an official member of anything. This affords the Vatican the right to nonpayment of fees and dues and precludes the UN and all other associations from demanding financial accounting of Vatican City.

When Notre Dame burned in Paris, the Pope expressed his sadness. While he offered no monetary compensation, he did express that he could advise parts of the reconstruction given his vast knowledge of cathedrals.   While Notre Dame is owned by France, the Catholic diocese has full privileges to use the cathedral for – free.

Originally the UN was created as a response to WWII and only countries that were allies during the war could join. The Big Four were the US, China, Russia and the UK. The belligerents were Germany, Italy, and Japan.

Today, Germany, Italy and Japan have become allies, and China and Russia have become belligerents. Twisted.

Pope Francis has been highly critical of Trump. He has attempted to over-rule Trump’s decisions, specifically the Mexican border wall, climate change, income and wealth inequality, media hypocrisy, and views regarding the NWO which Pope Francis supports.

In essence, despite the rule of law which stipulates a separation of church and state, the Pope maintains authority over every aspect of every country across the globe under the auspices of being a non-member member while completely free from those annoying fees and dues.

While we have really only second guesses and estimates as to the wealth of the Vatican, Vatican Bank manages over $64 billion in assets and it is estimated that the Vatican is the wealthiest organization in world – while demonizing wealth inequality.

The Vatican levies a ‘church tax’ on individual income generated throughout Europe that is deducted from each employees paycheck. It is believed that upwards of 70% of the Vatican’s income is made through this compulsory tax.

Last year the Papal Foundation awarded $15 million in grants and scholarships around the world, mostly to its own organizations, ie churches.   But this is common in the network of NGO’s and Foundations, wherein they basically redistribute their funds to a web of organizations that are connected or subsidiaries of the host organization.   When Zuckerberg gives his own foundation $20 million and the media goes berserk calling him a great philanthropist, what he is doing is redistributing the money, taking a charitable deduction, and then donating 5% of Foundation money to charities and NGO’s aligned with Soros.

The power The Vatican created was a consequence of the Dark Ages. At some point, they realized that as they stood behind the Kings and relayed what the King should do, their power appeared diminished by their lacking vestments.   And thus the finery, the dazzle, and the “papal tiara” were a means of defining their greater authority over the King.

I’ve been to Vatican City.  The massive preservation of artwork that is owned by The Vatican is incredible.   Much of it was procured/gifted by Hitler and the Mafia.  The Vatican is rife with allegations of collaborating with Nazi’s, money laundering, child sex abuse, vanilla sex, and secrecy.   Who ordains this Power?

Shouldn’t entrance to Vatican City – thus – be Free?

EU African Colonial Reparations

With the global flap in the wind Climate Change Fund errr, flapping, the EU has found a new and improved way to prop up their financing the redistribution of wealth agenda – “Colonialism Reparations”.

Another good reason for the UK BREXIT given they could be one of the biggest EU targets…

The gist of the bill is based on EU Afrophobic attacks.  The term, Afrophobic, conjures up  unjust prejudicial and racial ideologies in line with Islamaphobia.  Except that Afrophobia is related to ‘anyone of African descent’.   Each ‘national authority’ would thus be required to provide proper “education, housing, health, criminal justice, political participation and migration”.

The reasoning behind the gem of the bill is that the EU created colonialism and slavery throughout Africa and must be held accountable.

What this bill does not seem to address is the fact that hate crimes can occur against any race or culture including Jews, Whites, Christians, women, etc…  Therefore, creating an African agenda is actually quite blatantly – racial and prejudicial.

What is the real purpose?

  1. It opens the door to possible reparations being made to African states in the form of monetary aid.  Given the fall of funding for Climate Change that was being filtered to Africa, and the need for infrastructure to support the current colonialism land grabs, Africa has lost significant $$$$.   As the cabal took control of large swathes of land in Africa for pennies per hector, pushing out the local farmers, they required infrastructure in order to market their new machinized farms.   The Paris Accord Green Fund flapped, and money dried up.  Thus, a new agenda needed to be created to address the cabal’s need to have funding provided by taxpayers instead of from their own wallets.
  2. It creates an even larger welfare budget within individual EU countries that would become the burden of viable taxpayers further spiraling the EU economy into oblivion.
  3. It demonizes nationals as being the aggressors and victimizes immigrants further suppressing the criminal activities that are decimating entire cities throughout Europe.

The EU Commission rarely operates on a level that is not embedded in an alternate agenda.  And this instance is no different than any other.  The media coverage is slim with respect to hate crimes perpetrated by immigrant Afrikaners.  Most governments, specifically Germany’s, have adopted rules for quashing anything related to immigrant crimes.  The police are forced to release perpetrators, and statistically, they are prohibited from making any arrest which could skew the crime rates.

According to Germany’s Deutsche Welle, there were 800 attacks on Muslims last year.  By contrast, the first nine months of 2018 saw 1000 attacks on Jews.  There are roughly 117,000 Jews in Germany, while there are roughly one million Afrikaners (statistics are not available because Germany does not believe in profiling – numbers are based on an estimate done in 2013 before the massive immigration).

Similarly, in France it is illegal to conduct a census that queries race or color, therefore a proper statistic that would qualify as either Islamaphobia or Afrophobic is completely and utterly impossible.  Making the EU Commission’s bill nonsensical and without a shred of basis.

In addition, given Germany doesn’t profile, the number of attacks on Afrikaners could include black on black which would not be racial at all.

The agenda is obviously far from the purported EU Commission statement.  But as we watch Merkel and the growing possibility of her early resignation, it will be interesting to see where she chooses to reside as her country falls…

BREXIT: A New Referendum?

The UK’s Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn has announced that they would back a new and improved referendum to clarify that the people of the UK really don’t support BREXIT at all.  According to Corbyn, having such a vote would instantly erase the chaos that exists in the UK Parliament where tensions are strung tight, voices are loud, and insults are slung with the precision of an AK-47.

Short sided?

Obviously the ploy is to stage a new vote that will be rigged better than the last one to assure the ‘stayers’ a win.  Should that occur, the Parliament can sit back and actually do something of value to earn their keep.  However, it is a highly inflammatory move that could likely send the UK into an all out civil uprising given that the people are quite aware of the corruption.

In keeping with the illusion of fairness, Corbyn says that they will call this a ‘confirmation referendum’ – just to make sure that what was already voted on by the public is really what they still want because he is convinced that the last vote was rigged.

In contrast, Donald Tusk, of the EU Commission has announced that an extension of the March 29 deadline would likely be approved by all 27 member states in the vein of grace and goodwill.  YUCK.

At this point, Theresa May is watering down the BREXIT agreement to such an extent, that in all likelihood, it is no longer BREXIT at all.  Shadow Secretary, Emily Thornberry, went even further tweeting that Theresa May’s prposed deal be put forth before the public, and if they don’t accept it then it is a slam dunk to “remain”!

If it sounds like Blackmail, it probably is blackmail.

One of the major concerns regarding BREXIT is the impact it will have not on the UK, but on the European Union.  Not only is the UK a positive contributor, but with Germany’s growth staggering close to the point of recession, and France embroiled in a budget row excluding the demands of the Yellow Vests, who is going to fund the globalists?

What is interesting is the timing.  Theresa May has implied she will be stepping down from her role this summer.   If in fact a no deal is allowed and an extension is not requested or approved, May will go down in history as the cause.  If an extension is added to the March 29 deadline for three months as Juncker is hinting, that deadline would align with May’s predecessor taking over.   If May is just borrowing time, the resulting chaos that would engulf the UK would coincide with her quick flight to lala land.

The end result would be the sanctioning of the UK by the EU Commission, or an automatic remain injunction, both of which would send shockwaves and likely result in massive protests.

Given the Leave contingent are representative of conservative political ideologies, it follows that the Socialists are the remain.  Socialists dominate the EU Commission.  Germany is a highly Socialist state and Merkel has been at the helm to denounce any negotiation proposal brought forth by May.  Reconfiguring the costs that were born by the UK and distributing them proportionally to the remaining EU members will put Germany in the forefront to absorb the greatest proportion.   Given Germany’s economy has shown signs of cracking, the burden is enough to pull Germany into a recession.  And if Germany falls, the EU falls.

Hedge Funds are poised to react quickly to buy or short the pound, and the profits will revert to those holding the puppet strings.   But until the game is over, everyone is poised, hand ready to hit the red button – sell or buy…

BREXIT: The 39billion Pound Bomb

With 39billion pounds on the line, it is no wonder the EU Commission doesn’t much care if BREXIT goes forward with No Deal.   When in doubt, follow the money. 

While the UK ranks third in total contributions/membership fees to the EU, Net Contributions have ranged between 4.7billion pounds to 10.756 billion pounds. Thus with 39 billion on the line, it would take roughly 4-5 years to break-even, assuming a $0 interest rate.  The problem?  The UK has operated on a budget deficit for largely 65+ years with few exceptions, the most radical deficits occurring during the 2008 financial meltdown.

Problem?  The UK doesn’t have 39 billion pounds to give to the EU.

With the EU Commission facing a shortage of funds given the probability of BREXIT, at this point, taking 39 billion and running for the nearest tax free haven would not seem a bad idea.  It would also give them the necessary time to schmooze alternate countries into the Union such as Turkey and the Baltics to counter the lost annual revenue from a UK exit.

Given the recent whisper meeting between Juncker and Theresa May that may be exactly what was desired all along.

Theresa May has been in office since 2016.  In the UK the term of office is five years, ending 2021 which coincides with Merkels’ and is a year shy of Macron’s 2022 term end.  However, none of these officials are remotely popular and their stand-down, resignation has been called for by The People.  Theresa May could exit early if the BREXIT debacle doesn’t resolve according to the Will of The People.  But, I doubt she really cares.   Her legacy is already twalette water.

In contrast, The People in the US have not called for Trump’s resignation, that call has rigidly been made by DC Swamp reptilians from the Democrat and Republican Parties who see their Deep State monetary and power vacuum being sucked into oblivion.

The UK and Germany GDP growth rates hovering in the 1% category would put them on par with Haiti and Azerbaijan, ranking in the bottom 30 of 193 countries.   Not exactly a success story to write home to mama.  Women unite?   Hardly.

The Show, of course, the choreographed in-fighting, was likely staged and rehearsed two years ago with a scripted Act I, II and III resolving in nothing but chaos.  The implication that anyone in the UK Parliament actually gave a rats ass, is quickly waning.  They didn’t, don’t never have.

In the end, The Swamp that controls the UK, is likely speckled with layers of appointments as to who will be the lackey of the week ridiculed in the press, only to have that honor shift to the next idiot whose finances are secured in the offshore camps of various Panama Accounts awaiting the fall so that they can at last escape into their umbrella cocktails and mermaid prostitutes oblivious to the crash of proletariat servants.

May and Merkel will skulk into the sunset of their ever shrinking geriatric years on this earth, and Macron will be left, the lone wolf, flailing desperately as the tide breeches and he raises an arm to the sky, “Sacre Bleu!”  and disappears into the diaspora.

They are all dispensable in the globalist scheme, and they know it.   All they want is their island lifestyle to eclipse their dreams and make destroying their own countries, their homeland, worth it.

Meanwhile, a lone Trump is fighting beyond human comprehension to sustain The Politicians that abhor him in the US, to rise above the reptilian and piranha razing of flesh, and recreate a world wherein The People reign.  

Socialism In The US House…takes hold

With the Democrat House filing into DC they bring with them a new host of Socialists.  And one might gasp except that in 2010 the Socialist Party released a list of 70 Congressional Democrats who were also members of the Socialist Party of America.   They endorsed none other than John Kerry and Obama.  In the latest election 15 Socialists were elected to office across the US.  While the numbers may seem small from a percentage standpoint, they do reveal an evolution.   The EU Commission is comprised of Socialists, the UN is run by Social Democrats, and still, despite the collapse of Venezuela, the push continues.

In every Socialist state, the first death is that of the Middle Class.   Those who have much, have more, and those who had nothing, have something.   The fact that those who had nothing was a high percentage is what keeps the power operating.  Until it collapses.

And so the question arises, why does it collapse?

Opinion pieces are rampant in this discussion, most recently Bloomberg’s op-ed attempted to sway the discussion of Venezuela, and instead highlight the vast progress and effectiveness of Bolivia’s Socialist President, Morales.    The opinion piece claims there is a right way and a wrong way to do Socialism and lists Venezuela as the wrong way compared to Bolivia as the right way.  Noah Smith, the author of the piece bills himself as a neoliberal on his Twitter status.

But is Bolivia really a ‘right’ way, or is the author simply attempting to validate Socialism?

Bolivia’s President Morales continues to win re-election, not because his policies are good for Bolivia, but because he has given something to a population that had nothing, and virtually eliminated the Middle Class in the process.  He is elected by the poor, the 40% of the population living below poverty line.   Despite being given vast free assistance from Cuba and Brazil, Bolivia continues to rank in the bottom bowels of South America’s economy, ranked just above Venezuela.  Somehow Noah Smith didn’t read that far.

Bloomberg’s, Smith, cites the fact that they have GDP growth… and makes the claim that illiteracy has been eradicated.  Unemployment is made up of unskilled laborers, and skilled workers are in high shortage.  Corruption is rampant, a dictatorial rule is leveraged, while only 40% of the youth population continue school after the 4thgrade, and 20% enter secondary school, UNESCO has declared the country to be wholly literate.   In case you are math challenged, UNESCO warns that the rate can not be higher than 100%…   Unlike Florida which typically allows upwards of 140% of the population to vote.   I digress.

In terms of World Ranking – Bolivia is followed by Zimbabwe.

Not exactly a stellar record to use in support of Socialism.

The splintering and demise of the Republican and Democrat Parties is parlayed.

While Noah Smith argues that Socialism didn’t destroy Venezuela, hyperinflation did, he rather bizarrely refuses to acknowledge what caused ‘hyperinflation’.   It is humorous to note that Venezuela is referred to as the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela – it followed the exact same ideologies and principles as Morales does now in Bolivia.  The Bolivarian Revolution in 1999 ushered in Chavez as the savior of the Republic.  He vied for ‘socialism or death’.   Chavez government was called the Bolivarian government.  He created a new Constitution – as did Morales.  They support social welfare, social property, communes, universal healthcare, and of course, redistribution of wealth.

The only difference between Bolivia and Venezuela is that Chavez introduced Socialist policies beginning in 1999, Morales took office in 2006, Bolivia simply hasn’t reached the same crescendo – yet.

While the Soviet Union took decades to rise from the ashes of it’s socialist/communist rule instituted by the Bolsheviks, Venezuela and Bolivia don’t have the machismo or brute intellect to know how to recreate failing economics despite being rich in natural resources.  Reading of the demise of Venezuela, it reads as a static version of Bolivia’s current crisis and stagnation – crime rates soaring, riots, protests, inability to redirect industry from oil, vast resources left untapped, education crisis, etc…

Despite Noah Smith attempting to frame Socialism as simply mishandled, he has shown that his own understanding is rather pathetic.    But what he isn’t noticing is the fact that while both ruling parties in the US are crumbling, fracturing, and called out as failures (thank you Romney), the evolution of Socialism historically appears as a saving solution only to completely destroy the country so relegated – from within.

The EU is only now waking up to their own demise promulgated by the Socialist/Communist regimes of Merkel, Macron, and May.  Sweden is Falling faster than the Twin Towers, and Norway is a close second.   But then, that is the plan…

We The People, have that authority.  It is a choice.

EU Talks Italy – Amidst Biggest Banking Scandal In History!

Within the vein of ‘do as I say, not as I do”, or the adage, “rules are made to be broken”, the EU has threatened to punish Italy because they have submit a 2019 budget that increases debt by more than the allotment.   Of course the fact that only14 EU countries out of 30 meet the 60% GDP requirement at all doesn’t seem to phase the Commission when calling out Italy.   In fact, not even Germany has ever managed to keep within the guides and rules of debt to GDP.

So, the obvious reason Italy is being called out as the bad boy is because its new government isn’t a part of the Liberal EU Cabal.

In fact, it is so politically motivated that this is ‘the first time’ the EU Commission has demanded such a change in conjunction with a threat.  Italy has bucked the ranks.   Italy’s government has basically said – eff you.

In addition to Italy, Greece, Portugal, Belgium, France, Spain, Cyprus, Austria … all have debt to GDP ratios 30 points higher than the allowed 60%.   This is not a small deviance.  And yet, there are no sanctions.

The Global hand of the EU Commission is apparently plagued with arthritis.

EU Commissioner for economic and financial affairs, taxation and customs, Pierre Moscovici, has warned that the budget “lies outside our rules and regulations.”  That’s funny….!

Why would anyone abide by rules invented by the EU Commission when 53%, a majority, of EU members don’t abide?

In 1999, the EU Commission created a 3% threshold for budget deficits.   Italy’s deficit for 2019 according to its budget will be 2.4% – within the threshold.  But the EU believes that it will further escalate Italy’s total debt which stands at 132% all of which was generated by the previous Cabal aligned government that was not sanctioned…   Thus, although Italy is actually within the 3% threshold, the EU thinks they are being too positive and need to change..  but why then didn’t they sanction the previous government?

Of course, the EU’s demands and threats have hit brick walls before when dealing with Hungary and Poland on immigration quotas.

Has the Commission outlived its usefulness?  

I am reminded of parents who threaten their children to be quiet or else, only to try blackmail and candy when heir empty threats fall short.

The first EU Commission was created in 1951 and they called themselves, “The High Authority”.   They were tasked with administering coal and steel. It wasn’t until 1977 when Roy Clark, the UK’s Liberal, Democrat, Labour politician was appointed to the EU Commission that its role expanded significantly.   The Treaty of Lisbon which went into effect December 2009 increased the power of the EU President even more  substantially as well as creating fundamental rights, a legal personality, and a stronger EU Parliament.

The beginning of the end for an independent Europe.

Of course in good company with US MSM, it would seem that Brussels is actively attempting to create a detraction from news that is quite startling:   Germany’s Deutsche Bank, Spain’s Santander, Germany’s Commerzbank, Hypovereinsbank, Landesbanken, and Warburg Bank, British lender Barclays, French bank BNP Paribas, and global banks JPMorgan, Meryll Lynch, Morgan Stanley, and UBS have all been duplicitous in tax fraud that has resulted in a loss of revenue amounting to 55.2 billion Euro and is being called the ‘biggest tax robbery of EU history’.  

The news comes on the heels of revelations that Denmark’s top lender, Danske Bank, perpetrated the biggest money-laundering scandal in European history funneling over 200 billion Euro. The combined scandal amounts to just shy of $300 billion, greater than Russia’s entire annual revenues.  Yet it doesn’t even make the news.

Why?

Because it doesn’t advance the cause of banks and the Cabal. Instead, Italy’s budget is the main topic of discussion.  So what did the EU Commission do after today’s deadline for Italy to comply with their demands for a new budget?  They gave them three more weeks to change their mind.  Mama MIA!

And while Merkel has tabled all Saudi trade until the Saudi citizen Khashoggi idiocy can be finalized, the banking scandal is on the agenda to be ‘discussed’ in December. 

Poland Sued by EU at Behest of Soros!

The EU Commission is suing Poland!  Poland lowered the retirement age of judges from 70 to 65 which effectively terminates 27 of their 72 judges.   According to a statement issued by the EU, the foregoing is the reasoning behind such a bizarre move:   “The European Commission maintains that the Polish law on the Supreme Court is incompatible with EU law as it undermines the principle of judicial independence, including the irremovability of judges,”

Judicial independence means separation of power.  Typically, this meant that other assemblies of government could not influence the decision making process of sitting judges, given they were independent.  But the government continues to pay them.

Judges in many countries are granted ‘life tenure’, but are nonetheless forced to retire at 70 or 75.  So life tenure is a meaningless clause and the real issue is thus rather crumbly.

But then the EU Commission has been in a row with Poland of late and this would seem to be the strumming of a Soros agenda – tit-for-tat.  I doubt this EU move will likely make any fast friends among the Polish people as more meddling in internal affairs is generally not taken well.

But then the Polish President, Andrzej Duda, has indicated he would like a relationship with Trump, and that may have been the real catalyst for Soros who has quite an influence over the EU Commission.

According to the EU, the new age limitation for judges is a means for Poland to drain their Swamp. But whether life tenure means 70, 75 of 65, it is interesting that the EU would even have the right to make that determination.  With the EU fighting BREXIT, with Hungary also following anti-EU ideals, with Italy staged to follow, the EU Commission is rightfully seeing it’s base of funding disappear, and it’s globalization agenda – fray.

Austria is in the midst of a row with the UN and EU over the migration crisis.  Relations with Putin have added to the Soros miff, as Russia continues the race of the Tortoise and the Hare.

Therein, the EU defines Judicial Independence as a Human Right.  In a recent poll, Europeans were asked to rank what they deem as most important from a list of European Values.   EU Values have frequently been cited by Merkel as being far superior to US Values.  Following is how the people of Europe would rate their value structure:

Human Rights, Human Life, Peace, Democracy, Individual Freedom, Rule of Law, equality, Solidarity, Tolerance, Self, Respect for Other Cultures, Religion – in that order.

A notable sad realization is that ‘religion’ came in last place garnering just 5% of the poll’s position.

So how is Poland’s Reformation of it’s Judiciary considered a ‘Human Right” violation?  Because according to Poland, many of the older judges are actually remnants of the 1980’s Communist era and need to be replaced. The globalists disagree and claim that the Reformation will allow politicians to place in office judges who fit their particular agenda.

But the government isn’t ‘selectively’ eliminating judges, they simply changed the retirement age and lowered it by five years.  Judges will continue to be nominated according to the same process that has been used for decades.

Soros’ efforts to destabilize from within have been called out.   Since booting out Mrs Lyudmyla Kozlovska, President of the Open Dialog Foundation, this past August, Soros has been busily working on retaliatory actions.  But even more enlightening, what this highlights is the incredible power-influence Soros has over the EU Commission!  They will do his bidding no matter what it is, no matter if their actions are idiotic!   Some EU countries have quite simply risen above his influence and are fighting back.

Perhaps Poland’s desire to have a permanent US military base in Poland named after Trump, isn’t so much about fears of a Russian invasion as the US media would have us believe, but of an EU invasion…

Just a thought.
