Germany: The Wolf in Disguise?

Op-Eds are determined to paint Trump’s various actions as alienating “allies and friends”.   Citing the Iran Nuclear Deal and the Paris climate Summit as examples of Trump being a really ‘mean’ guy, the editorials are otherwise rather hollow in terms of actual journalism that might delve into the ‘why’, the ‘wherefore’, and the ‘who’, and simply spew a column of vacant opinion.  And while an Op-Ed, is an ‘opinion’, in true journalism fashion, it would include rationales, reason, evidence, description, and factual basis. Instead, today’s Op-Ed’s are just – blather.

So.  Trump is alienating allies and friends.   Who might that be?   Germany certainly is miffed.    And given that Germany now rules the EU Commission, the EU Commission is miffed.  And given the EU Commission supposedly represents all EU states, that would imply all the EU is angry at Trump…  But in reality – that just ain’t so.

Many EU countries are back pedaling from the dictatorship of Germany over their sovereignty.  They have come to realize that their country is no longer theirs, but instead is a mini-state of Germany, and that’s not going over very well:   Spain is in its own flurry and chaos given the Catalonia disruption which is based on division of wealth.   Italy is now facing a Coup d’Etat politically.  Hungary has expelled Germany’s puppet master, Soros.  Romania and Trump just struck a new trade deal.  The UK is mired in Swamp revelations.  Sweden has succumbed to migrant chaos and destruction.

The problem with the Op-Eds as currently initiated is these consequences are directly related to internal political corruption, and/or dissatisfaction with an abysmal economic profile – NOT Trump.  But the opinion pieces fail to provide dissertation or factual backup.

Journalism has come to represent slanderous yapping, instead of the reporting of statistics and facts.

Some Op-Eds reference Canada as a lost ally because of Trump.  However, they fail to reference the current internal chaos that has lodged a wicked knife in the heart of Canada’s economy under Trudeau.   Headlines include:

  1. Expanded Canada Pension Plan could decrease investment in Canada by up to $114 billion over next dec
  2. Lack of pipelines will cost Canada $15.8 billion this year
  3. Rate of small business startups in Canada down nearly 50% in 30 years.
  4. Record high gas prices show need for gas tax reform (taxes represent 33% of the cost of gas)
  5. One million Canadians waited for medical treatment in 2017 costing $1.9 billion in lost wages

This is an insight into the ally with whom we want to model and align our economic decision making?

Australia, another ally that follows liberal policies and politics.  Over the last ten years their GDP growth rate has rarely broken 1% and never reached 1.5%.   Their forecast outlook is completely flat.   The US remains Australia’s second highest trade partner, after China.  The top exports to China include Iron Ore and coal, two of the most polluting commodities.  And while Australia would ‘like’ to boast of the their advanced immigration statistics – Muslims and refugees barely make the list given that they have tough requirements in order to qualify including advanced education and degrees.

Paris Climate Accord:   So after receiving billions in Grants, what has the Paris Climate Accord accomplished?  Because Merkel is fuming over the fact that Trump is not offering any more money..  The Accord has re-distributed money from various countries into a global pocketbook that would be deposited with the UN and disposed of via ‘private sector asset owners’.  Which sounds an awful lot like a giant subsidy for the world’s largest corporate polluters to draw from when they are sued for polluting…

In essence, the ally that is most disrupted by the Trump administration is Germany.  And in essence, given Germany is fundamentally a Globalization cabal statehood with the Rothschilds and Soros leading the government, and by default, The Swamps, they would not be so much an ally – as a wolf in disguise.

Iran Deal – Merkel Bows

Iran’s relationship with Germany, and by default the EU, is precariously preposterously muddled in piddle.   Iran is calling the shots. Iran is denoting the ‘additional’ terms that the EU must follow if Iran is going to continue holding to the Obama terms of the Iran Deal.   And Merkel looks like a wimperton.

Khameini has provided five additional pledges that the EU must incorporate into the Deal or else the deal is off:

  • They will pledge to avoid opening negotiations over Iran’s ballistic missile program or actions in the Middle East.
  • European banks should “safeguard trade” with Tehran.
  • They should continue buying Iranian oil and should, if necessary, also buy Iranian oil the US decides not to buy.
  • They should “stand up against US sanctions” on Iran.
  • They should condemn US for allegedly breaking a United Nations resolution that supports the nuclear deal.

IF the EU does not accept all of the above, Iran will “continue its enrichment of uranium”.   What this reveals is the fact that a renegotiation of the original deal Obama and Kerry drafted, is off the table.   Iran is holding firm. It also reveals that uranium enrichment is and has been a long term commitment in Iran.   Despite the pinky swear that Liberals and Libertarians hold on to feverishly.

By defense, Pompeo has stated that unless Iran renegotiates the deal, they face the strongest sanctions ever stipulated in history.   And of course, that ultimately would include ‘regime change’ by the Iranian people, or by coup.

Like the governments of each and every country across the globe, it is unclear whether they represent the will of The People, or the will of The Government, and Iran is no different.

Unfortunately, trying to access Iranian blogs is much like trying to access German Blogs, repression of the media and censorship reign.

Interestingly, in 2017, a number of prominent Iranians sent Trump a joint letter urging him to ‘keep the Iranian Nuclear Deal’, these prominent Iranians, were all artists, actors, with the exception of one scientist who went to Harvard, the school of ir-repute and Open Societies.

The letter apparently sparked a recourse of dissidents who claimed that the views of these select artists did not represent the will of The People.   And it is upon this Will – that I believe we must focus.   I have met a few Iranian converts over the course of my years, and they have all – without exception – been the best of the best.   Educated, philosophical, and well informed, their voices were subjugated until they came to the states.   Still, they were not of the Liberal ilk wherein they fumed and fret and made a nuisance of themselves demanding this and that entitlement. Instead, they dove into the world of business, and made their mark.

I think too often we lose sight of the diction of the government vs the diction of society. It is easy to see it in our own country, but when a country is demonized, too often, we marginalize the people as well. It is and has been the fate of Syria, of Yemen, of Russia, of Germany, of the US, and of Iran.

Oddly, we are quick to understand there are good cops and bad cops, good politicians and bad politicians, good actors and bad actors, and yet when the media wants to indoctrinate an agenda, the evil is profoundly – all.

And without the proper guides, the People – believe.

If we were to impose that same way of thinking upon the US, we would assume that all women were just like Hillary, all men were just like Epstein, and all others were – deplorables. We don’t accept that here, so why in the world would we accept that anywhere else – including – Iran?

Maybe, just maybe, Khomeini is as lauded there as Obama was here… just a thought.

Iran Nuclear Deal – All About The Money

Everyone seems brainwashed that the Iran nuclear deal was all about peace and love and everyone just getting along like Flower Children wearing daisies.  Conservatives, Libertarians, and Democrats are gushing that Trump is disrupting a Peace Agreement when in fact it was never about Peace – it was always about Money – Trade – follow the $$$$$$!  

Short term memory loss:  In 2016 the UK government released an Iranian trade and export guide:  “There is a positive outlook for UK-Iran trade relations. Iran is the biggest new market to enter the global economy in over a decade, offering significant opportunities in most sectors, with potential to grow as the market in Iran expands.

Iran’s significant oil and gas reserves will be an important driver of economic growth. Other sectors in this diversified economy with the potential to contribute to the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth and employment and where UK business has particular strengths include: Retail, Healthcare, Infrastructure, mining and water.”

Money. 

Of course the EU has to support the Obama Nuclear Deal, their business interests have ratcheted up billions to exploit the country and if they supported Trump to pull out of the deal, their lobbyists, their political funding, would tank!

The Guardian wrote:   “Companies from Asia and Europe are already flocking to do business in theemerging economy, which is set to come in from the cold should Tehran meet its obligations to not pursue a nuclear weapon.”

Dubai scheduled ten flights per day to Tehran and said each one was packed.   But it was Germany leading the pack with their tongue wagging and their wallets stuffed with IOU’s anticipating a boom of $3 billion Euro immediately, and a release of their oil import concerns amidst visions of lollipops and gummy bears…

Meanwhile the voices revert still to the Peace Treaty and claim that Iran underwent multiple inspections all of which determined it was squeaky clean.   But the inspection process was quite sketchy;  Iran had to be given advance notice of an inspection by outsiders, certain facilities were exempt from inspection, military facilities were off-limits including the Parchin facility which was ‘self inspected’.

Currently the IAEA website is blocking access to Iran Inspections with an “error Page 504…  Odd.  I suppose they need to create reports that weren’t previously created?

In 2016, Yukiya Amano, Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said “The hard work of verifying the controversial pact will likely continue for years, strongly hinting that he intends to seek a third term as head of the watchdog agency to see the task through.”

“It is still fragile,” Amano said of the accord during an interview at the IAEA’s Austrian headquarters. “Reaching an agreement was very important, but making it sustainable requires a lot of effort.” 

Has the IAEA released an Inspection Report since 2016?

Trump attempted to renegotiate parts of the Agreement to shore up the obvious loopholes and was blatantly told – No.  Why if they have nothing to hide?  Why if they are truly in compliance?

The IAEA is mired in controversy and muddling, short staffed, and inexperienced staff make up a portion of their inspection team.  In September 2017, Director General, Yukima Amana, stated that“The IAEA has conducted many complementary accesses (CAs) in Iran since Implementation Day of the JCPOA, and will continue to request access to sites and locations before drawing a broader conclusion for the country.”

In other words, two years after the implementation of the Nuclear Deal as created by Obama and Kerry, only a handful of sites were actually inspected by the IAEA because Iran refused access.

Now the media would have us believe that what is most important is for the US to ignore these facts and simply join the EU bandwagon of exploiting the trade dollars while Iran continues to do whatever it chooses…

Meanwhile, Kerry is desperate.  I wonder how much $$$$$$ are at stake from his own portfolio?

Obama and Kerry: Negotiating with Global Leaders

While the press is fixated on personal jabs at Trump, McCain at personal jabs at Trump, there is a rumbling beneath the surface that is growing exponentially.   Despite the fact that Obama is no longer president, he continues to act as though he is meeting with foreign dignitaries across the globe from the presidents of China to India to France, to Germany, to Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Japan to the infamous Farrakhan leader of the Nation of Islam.  

John Kerry is also making world tours under the guise of his former status as Secretary of State, most importantly meeting with heads of state in Iran.   Kerry is also running around the globe speaking at the UN as the US representative while fomenting division as he speaks with France’s Macron, with the European Union foreign policy chief, and with Germany’s president, Steinmeier.  Coincidentally, today Steinmeier (who rarely comes out of the proverbial closet to offer an opinion on anything) made front page news as he slams Trump for alienating what was formerly known as the ‘global community” and for not backing the Iran deal…

Simultaneously, Michelle Obama is making tours representing herself as the ‘forever First Lady”, and Hillary is raising money across the globe purportedly in the guise of book tours.

Theories circulate as to the radical flurry of these comrades-in-armswho seemingly are securing their place, their name, their power – as a potential transfer of power underlying the rumbling in the US White House.   Impeachment or coup, they are desperate to secure their grab of righteous authority.

But these trolls of the White House are losing ground as Trump continues to drain The Swamp and reveal the corruption that has plagued our government for decades.   A bitter war is being fought as we stand idly on the sidelines.   Most of The People are completely unaware of the magnitude of this purging.   Most are not privy to the layers upon layers that have slowly been built only to find that as one layer is uncovered and displaced, ten more are revealed.

It is interesting that despite these revelations, many within even the conservative ranks and Libertarian ranks, are still unsatisfied.  As though it isn’t ‘enough’, it isn’t ‘fast enough’, it isn’t enough players…   They speak with the same entitlement and impatience that one would normally expect from within the Liberal Democrat ranks.   Perhaps it is simply a societal anomaly of everything must happen immediately without the business and political insight of rules of order, of cause and effect, and of thorough research and investigation.

While Kerry’s actions of colluding with the ‘enemy’ are categorically illegal under the Logan Act, Obama continues to traverse a skimming line that is carefully announced within the vein of Foundation work – much like the Clinton Foundation skimming that was regurgitated just a year+ ago.   But given there were no real consequences paid by the Clinton’s for their corrupt funding, Obama has nothing to preclude him from playing the same game.

At least not – Yet.  

IRAN Nuclear Deal – A Sham

Was the Iran Nuclear Deal more about finding a means for lifting sanctions than curbing their nuclear production? Was it more of a corporate decision in order to profit on the economy of Iran while unfreezing potentially $100 billion in assets, which could be used to pay for the greed of corporate products? Maybe it was to legalize all the ‘waivers’ that had been extended despite the sanctions!

The US had already apparently granted some 296 waivers, allowing various business to operate, trade, and service in Iran – prior to the Iran Nuclear Deal. All granted during the Obama regime.

Waivers were given to a host of biomedical, agriculture, and medical device companies, but they were also given to institutions like Harvard, New York University, HSBC, BNP Paribas, GE, genetics companies, etc…

BNP was cited for illegally doing business with Iran, Sudan and Cuba despite sanctions in place. They were fined nearly $9 billion by the US, and then issued a waiver – to do business in Iran. BNP is also the largest nuclear investor bank in the world with $13.5 billion on the line.

Since the Iran Nuclear Deal became effective, the share price of BNP Paribas has risen 67%.

So what is the point of sanctions if waivers are the norm?

And who is denied a waiver? How much does it cost to buy a waiver? Where is the waiver money deposited, because I don’t see it as a line item under the Federal Revenue Budget?

Nothing is ever as it seems, and the Iran Deal is no exception.

Playing with the sanctions in Iran has been rather self fulfilling as periodically specific sanctions were lifted. In 2000, sanctions were lifted on ‘caviar and carpets’, obviously to accommodate the appetite of the uber wealthy.

With a failed attempt to colonize Ukraine, was Iran the next largest prospect? Cuba?

Iran is much more westernized than other Middle Eastern countries. The Burqua is not required.   Luxury brands from the EU and US are popular. They have copycat markets for burgers, pizza, and even Starbucks. Victoria Secrets, cigarettes, Dell and Apple products are everywhere.

Legalizing what has already been done under the table is only a part of the agenda.

Israel. Israel and Iran despise each other. Lifting the sanctions releases a pressure valve ramping up Israel’s defensive character. The Iran Deal also sends a message to Israel that – you aren’t important, business is – and isolates Israel from virtually the rest of the world given the P5+1 signed off on the New Deal. P5+1 is Russia, China, UK, US, and France, the +1 is Germany, an after thought… why not make it the P6? Too easy.

The notion that scrapping the Iran deal will somehow spur Iran to greater nuclear capacity is rather naïve. Iran has yet to be transparent, we really don’t know – or aren’t saying – their true nuclear capabilities. Despite the IAEA politely asking for pretty please permission to see all of Iran’s facilities, the request is not always granted. This same IAEA organization claims they will conduct ‘oversight’ to maintain that Iran stays within the confines of the Iran Nuclear Deal… But of course, how can they possibly when they don’t even know where all the sites exist and aren’t allowed access?

Allegations about facilities have abounded, and sometimes shelved. When denied access, the IAEA simply shrugs. With a budget of roughly ½ billion euros, what exactly do they do and where does their money come from?   Apparently the revenue is generated via ‘contributions from member states – perhaps why Germany was made a quasi member, to ante up. And the bulk of expenses are for staff, travel and consultants.

According to staff at the IAEA, their inspectors don’t have the expertise or knowledge to properly inspect and identify whether a machine is being utilized for military capabilities or not! Hence they require outside consultants. So why have the IAEA if outside consultants can perform the job at 1/20th of the cost?

The IAEA doesn’t have a clean bill of health in their performance having been called out for improper samplings and techniques in Syria. Even Democrat Feinstein has stated that the IAEA needs to be substantially overhauled if we are going to rely on their oversight.

Littered with oddities from the beginning, the Iran Nuclear Deal really had little to do with curtailing Iran’s nuclear capabilities and more to do with opening a floodgate for Corporate wealth – and putting Israel on notice.
