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?

The Cabal Mafia: Follow The Money

Macron has announced plans to transfer more troops and French Legionnaires to the Estonia border to protect Europe from Russian aggression. This is done in cooperation with NATO and all it’s allies. According to Macron. In a recent speech, Jens Stoltenberg of NATO called for unity to fight against Russian aggression.

Both failed to explain exactly what aggression Russia was deploying.

In fact, simultaneously, Putin was meeting with Estonia’s President, Kersti Kaljulaid to extend their trade, economic growth, and open the borders for diplomacy.   While the conversations reflected some difficult points of contention, both parties left with heightened faith that they could indeed entwine successfully.

So which story is true?

One points to an ever aggressive Russia that is a fearful enemy, and the other reports cooperation, mutual respect and growth.

While technically the information in both articles is correct, they present a diametrically opposed view.   The villain Russia is still being represented as illegally annexing Crimea from Ukraine.  The Russian population in Crimea represents 66% of the ethnicity. That ‘annexation’ was five years ago and was voted on by the majority population – Russians. And technically, neither Crimea or Ukraine give a rat what the US, NATO, or the EU think any longer. They have just elected a new President to oust the ridiculously worthless chocolate king, Poroshenko who managed to completely tank their economy and their civility, while extending corruption.

So who, what is this demon Russia?  I am intrigued by the continued staging of an evil Russia; especially from an historical perspective.

Granted Russia was a communist nation until 1991. But if we consider that Germany initiated both WWI and WWII, and still is represented as an ally, the logic doesn’t fly.   A piece in the puzzle is missing.   Japan bombed the US, but Japan is now an ally.   Russia was an ally for both World Wars and was instrumental in the defeat of the German and Austrian Nazis. So if our enemies became our friends, and our ally became our enemy, what is missing?

While the typical debate directs the conversation toward Putin, defining him in terms of repressive, a former KGB officer, and diabolical; those are terms that could be applied to every President and/or Prime Minister. They are fluff words to mask the true agenda.

Other arguments against Russia include its military strength which is viewed as a threat.   The operative word is ‘viewed’. A media perception employed by The Swamp through the corrupt CIA.  Russia has actually not threatened the US.

Putin is a nationalist. He believes in his country and wants the economy of his country to grow. That growth is delivered through trade. Obama levied sanctions specifically to crash the Russian economy. Obama believed that by crashing the economy, Putin’s image would be destroyed and a puppet government could be inserted. But that strategy failed.

Instead, Putin began to initiate trade elsewhere to bolster against the sanctions.   The Russian people became angry at a US rational that was catastrophic and their loyalty to Putin extended.  And this infuriated the agenda makers.

While the media focus continues to target Russia, the real threats are left unstated. They saturate every country across the world.   The reason the media cannot discuss these real threats is because many politicians and government agencies collude in their crimes.  The criminals are being protected, but an evil is essential as a unifying threat, and as a deflection from the Truth.

They are – the Mafia.

As of 1995, the global mafia trade was said to be worth over $750 billion per year.  Today, that number has likely breached the $1 trillion mark.   Their money laundering is endorsed by nearly every major bank across the globe including Deutsche Bank, JP Morgan Chase, Danske Bank, US Bancorp, etc… These banks routinely pay massive fines but continue to launder because it is hugely more profitable than the pittance of fines.

When a country collapses, the mafia moves in.   Coups have become the easiest means of collapsing a country for the mafia.  And they are protected by the corrupt politicians just like they always have been. Their expansion has been massive. Initially the Sicilian source, they rapidly moved throughout the globe setting up shop in the US, Japan, Argentina, Russia, Albania, Bosnia, Serbia, Sweden, Israel, France, Bulgaria, Greece, Columbia, Brazil, Venezuela, etc…

The Organized Crime And Corruption Reporting Project is an NGO established in 2006 by investigative media and journalists to bring to light corruption around the world. In particular it has a penchant for Russia, and routinely targets Putin. One of its largest funders is George Soros, Open Society Foundation. Other funding has come from USAID, US State Department (Hillary), Knight Foundation, Google Ideas, and the Swiss Confederation (Switzerland). It works in conjunction with various Soros or government controlled media outlets including the Guardian, BBC, Al Jazeera, and Time Magazine.

Interestingly, despite its name, what it doesn’t investigate is ‘organized crime’ or the mafia.

In essence, the media, through its benefactors and foundation supporters, have created an evil Russia while virtually allowing the true enemy, Organized Crime, to perpetuate without any coverage.

Why?

Because a deflection is necessary in order to preserve the true criminal.  Because that is where the money flows.   And because targeting Organized Crime would reveal the massive political support and global agenda.   Supported by banks, Soros, and Switzerland through a Cabal of elite mega wealthy individuals, the Mafia is – Soros and The Cabal.   And all those who align with him/it are brought into that Brotherhood of holy wealth beyond their dreams.  Power?  Bought and paid for.  And therein lies the phrase – ‘money is the root – of all evil’.

Follow The Money.

Russia Sanctions – Meaningless Propaganda.

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.

Putin Threatens US With Missile Targets…

The Media spin is most definitely eye rolling, but more provocatively angst is how incredibly misleading the story outline is regarding Putin threatening the US with missile targets.  The newest Russia allegation is claiming that Putin is threatening the US, and how should the US react?   Let’s take a look at what was actually said and why…

The scare tactic story is devised to further demonize Russia by the liberal left.  In fact, the US through NATO has deployed hundreds of nuclear missiles throughout Europe aimed at one principle target – Russia.   This military posture was heightened during the Obama administration to goad Putin into a potential defensive war.   Using eastern bloc countries, Obama systematically installed missile defense systems along the Russian border.   The provocation was obvious and Putin reacted emphatically denouncing the move and claiming it jeopardized the balance of peace.

Fast forward.

NATO and the EU Socialist blocs hate all things Russia and Putin.  The simplistic reason is because Putin refuses to submit to the same Protocols that have taken hold of parts of South America, Canada, Australia, parts of the EU and the US – prior to Trump.   The entire point of globalization is to create a one world government which is not possible unless you have subjugated every country.  Russia has been the most prominent holdout, and thus is the flagrant scape goat for demonizing.   Prior to Trump, the liberal administration was emphatically onboard.   Under Trump – not so much.

Recently liberal media outlets began the propaganda campaign of claiming Putin had declared strike targets against the US.  The media failed to ‘finish’ the quote:   “… in the event of aggression against Russia .”  Or: “State TV channel Russia-1 has presented a list of five US decision making centres that will become likely targets for Russia’s Zircon hypersonic missiles deployed on submarines if Washington decides to attack Moscow using its missile arsenal.”  If.  

In other words, Putin announced a defensive/offensive strategy should the US attempt to bomb Russia. To do or say anything less would be incredibly – well, stupid and militarily absurd.  Putin’s job is to protect his country.

Russia became a tremendous propaganda tool during the Obama rein of terror.   Every news outlet was instructed to virtually copy/paste articles seemingly written by the CIA under the Direction of Petraeus, Panetta and Brennan. Brennan was particularly interesting in that Obama claimed they “shared a similar philosophy”.  It was Brennan who oversaw the CIA investigation over the Russian/Trump collusion in the 2016 election.   I imagine that was paramount in their ‘shared philosophy’.  Brennan virtually drooled over Hillary.

Using the INF Treaty as grounds for the riff, the media ignores specific elements of the Treaty that make it completely worthless for the US.   The Treaty is only applicable to the US and Russia.   In other words, all other countries in the world can build and deploy an unlimited number of land based short and intermediated range ballistic and cruise missiles.   No one else is bound to, or a party of, this Treaty.  The Treaty was created during a time of transition, the end of the Cold War.   Today, both Putin and Trump recognize that it is ineffectual, dated, and superfluous in a very changed demographic.

Allegations of violations are a distraction.  The enemy has shifted.   And the Treaty needed to go away.

It is rather bizarre that the same media that claim Trump is in collusion with Russia, also claim the withdrawal from the Treaty by the US and Russia was symptomatic of the demise of US and Russian relations…   Obviously, you don’t collude with a country you perceive to be your enemy.  In fact, the media was likely fed a story line and the propaganda meme went full throttle.

The fact that the Treaty only applied to the US and Russia – not NATO, Germany, UK, North Korea or China… is clearly the main reason for the withdrawal from the INF Treaty as the US grows ever closer to identifying exactly who are our real allies, and who – is not.  And Russia’s statement that they will defend themselves against an attack – is simple juju jargon for all the misfits in the MSM.

ELECTRONIC WARFARE: The Corporate Strategy for Liberal World Order

The Munich Security Council is slated to meet this week with diplomats and politicians from possibly 100 countries represented.  Founded in 1963 by Ewald-Heinrich von Kleist, its motto is “Peace through Dialogue”.

The 2018 Conference resulted in the German Foreign Minister accusing Russia, China and the US of undermining the ‘liberal world order’.  Which is true – thankfully, but a rather unpeaceable aligned dialogue.

The 2017 Conference was a tennis match of the US vs Germany chipping away at defense spending, NATO, and demands for a more ‘responsible America’.  And while the bantering was evident on all fronts, some of the guests’ in attendance were notable:

Bill Gates warned that a biological weapon, a genetically modified species, could be used by terrorists, or governments, that would infect computers and infiltrate through the system into monitors/screens around the world and transpose an infectious virus that could kill 30 million people.

Today, the military is developing drones fitted with lasers, which is the equivalent of an unlimited gun magazine, that could take out potentially hundreds or thousands of people in seconds.

The Chinese and US militaries have developed Artificial Intelligence capability which can maneuver the drones and have shown success in beating human pilots.

Russian Navy boats are now being equipped with a newly developed weapon that can presumably cause the target to hallucinate and thus be unable to defend itself or properly aim an attack.  The weapon works by flooding the human nervous system with more light than it can process. In the past, systems using a flood of light or sound have been used for crowd control, but those are Flintstone compared to the advancements made as of today.

In 2015 Chris Roberts, a hacker who founded cyber security firm, One World Labs, announced that he could use his basic laptop computer to hack into the systems of airplanes and control the flight pattern, speed, altitude and direction.   He was forced out of his company which was then reorganized by Mark Turhan and Russell Cohen, and investigated by the FBI.

Conspiracy theories now abound regarding the truth of the 2014 disappearance of Malaysian Airlines 370, wherein 20 employees of the global tech giant, Freescale, perished. Within months of this tragedy Freescale was merged with NXP Technologies a Netherland company for $40 billion.

Freescale was heavily involved in military and defense operations including:   IFF, electronic warfare, HF Radio, Missile Guidance, Avionics and Battlefield Communication.  Freescale has a history of developing various target chips for military warfare.  Electronic Warfare includes radar jamming and deception, electronic masking, and … ‘reprogramming.’   Given M370 detection was not visible on radar, speculation over the use of a cloaking device has been shuffled around.  In addition, the sphere of conspiracy follows:  Blackrock and T Rowe Price each hold roughly 10% of the outstanding shares of NXP, the merged predecessor to Freescale.  State Street Corp owns about 5%.  Blackrock owns 10% of T Rowe Price and about 8% State Street.  Blackrock is the brainchild of Jacob Rothschild.

It was around this time frame that remote car hacking was also revealed wherein a car’s speed, braking, and steering could be externally controlled by a laptop computer.

It would appear that the essence of these warfare tactics is to diffuse the need of a military altogether and reprogram or redirect security into the hands of corporations utilizing engineering expertise and Artificial Intelligence to control targets from the perspective of corporate directives as opposed to national safety.

Ultimately, that would mean the militaries as we know them would become superfluous.  It may also give rise to why Germany and Merkel refuse to construct a military per the NATO Agreement, and per the need for defense. The next generation of military will be Corporations, so why would Merkel spend money on what will be a superfluous organization in a few short years…

This also reveals why the INF Treaty with Russia is defunct and useless.  It exposes why the US has no need to implement this treaty given Nuclear is not the enemy, it is not what we should fear, it is the Bull in a China Shop that has been emptied of china.  It is outdated, out-maneuvered, and a dinosaur in relative weaponry.   Nuclear is – a Distraction.

While the media professes that a deranged Trump is in control of the Nuclear Red Button, the Cabal is rapidly and rabidly gaining control of the Biologic and Electronic Warfare with Jacob Rothschild at the helm and that Agenda is truly deranged, maniacal, and deserving of fear.

Years ago my father co-authored a book on military intelligence and defense.  It is completely obsolete at this juncture as Corporations begin the inevitable takeover.

Germany and France: Fake a Military Alliance…

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.

But it isn’t mandatory…

France: Budget Chaos = Tax Chaos = Civil Chaos

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.

This is why the Yellow Vests are protesting!

NATO: A Freefall into Oblivion

Shortly after we got transferred back to the states in the late 1960’s and my dad went to work for the Pentagon, the proverbial shitake mushrooms hit the fan as the defense budget costs were audited revealing $1000 nails, gold toilet seats, $5000 paintings, etc… It was an embarrassment but it showed how budgets were created, inflated, and spent.  It also showed – why?

In the government, when you submit a budget, if you don’t use up all the allocated funds, the subsequent year you are given less.  Therefore, some genius came up with the idea of overspending so that each subsequent year you would get more.  That’s how it went in a nutshell.  And that’s how it continued from the advent of Democrat Lyndon Johnson, until present day.

In light of Trump demanding that NATO allies immediately spend the ‘required’ 2% of GDP on defense, the backlash is typical – “the USAF spent $32,000 on special cups”. Therefore, Trump is a spendthrift who can’t call out member states who don’t ante up their part.

Of course, they have completely missed the point.

The oddball spendthrift is the one country that is the EU’s wealthiest, Germany spending just a tad over 1%.  Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, Norway, Canada, Belgium, Denmark, Luxembourg, Latvia, Lithuania and Romania all underspend according to the NATO rules of Protocol. And they all have since 1991 when Clinton was President and the Soviet Union was dissolved.   The threats for which NATO was created; Italy and the Soviet Union, no longer existed.

Of 29 member states, 5 meet the 2% threshold, Poland is quite close, and the remaining don’t.  So why have rules at all if no one cares to abide by them?  Why have NATO is even the EU’s wealthiest nation refuses to pay their fair share?

Yet somehow, Trump is the bad guy…

Trump called for the 2% mark to be met immediately with a future goal of 4% and the media is going ballistic.  Why? Because they say the US doesn’t spend that much, in fact the US spends only 3.6%…  Interesting argument.  Trump is apparently setting the stage for an increase in defense spending and the media completely missed the message.

Adding to the idiocy is the fact that Merkel who just instituted an extension of sanctions against Russia, simultaneously signed a deal for $11 billion to bring the Russian pipeline into the EU, and demonized Trump for even criticizing the hypocrisy of the situation, while demanding that the US continue to pay the bill to protect Germany from the ‘bad guy’ – Russia.

In 2017, Germany reported a 41.2 billion Euro surplus which represented 1.2% of their GDP.  SO why didn’t they meet their NATO budget criteria if they had the funds to do so?   Military expenditures represented roughly 10% of their Revenues.

The reason they don’t is because no one is crying wolfe!  They are not called to their word.  And their integrity has flatlined.

NATO:  The US was initially not a member of NATO until Democrat, Harry Truman, decided that including the US would help to expand the globalization goal in eradicating communism – ie, Soviet Russia and Fascist Italy.   At the time Germany was not a member given they were the front for WWII.  In 1955, despite France’s adamant denunciation, NATO brought West Germany in as a member.  By 1966, De Gaulle had transferred all defense forces out of NATO due to the perception that it had become a US/UK stronghold.

Short term memory: France did not return to NATO until 2009 with advent of Obama’s Presidency and the rise of the Global elite cabal.

While NATO membership continued to expand from its initial 5 countries as of 1948, it is not clear why given the threats it was created to deter had long ago been eradicated.  Still, it was somewhat of an elite party and everyone wanted to be on the list although no one wanted to pay their fee, they likened it to a freebie supported in most by the US.

Over the course of it’s life NATO has worked somewhat in conjunction with US military forces. Essentially, they became a US adjunct financially, while the EU states that it was formed to protect continued to pay less and less over the next 26-27 years from 1991 to 2018.  The US military budget is $886 billion.   That accounts for over half the Discretionary Spending and roughly 20% of the entire Federal Budget.

NATO is obsolete. Whether or not they accomplished anything of value since their ascension to power is debatable.   Their purpose has been removed from existence over the last 26 years.  EU and Canada have recognized this and their contributions have been on a steady free fall ever since.

Dump NATO.

Facebook Partners with The Atlantic Council on Censorship

Oh Brother, as if Facebook couldn’t get any worse, Zuckerberg announced the new and exciting launch of a collaboration/partnership with The Atlantic Council, and here is their job description:

“security, policy and product teams” to offer “real-time insights and updates on emerging threats and disinformation campaigns from around the world. The Atlantic Council’s Digital Research Unit Monitoring Missions will help Facebook watch out for “misinformation and foreign interference” during “elections and other highly sensitive moments” and also work to “help educate citizens as well as civil society.”

What the heck!

The primary funders behind The Atlantic Council include:   UAE, Bahaa Hariri – a Saudi Lebanese businessman who is brother to the PM of Lebanon, Adrienne Arsht – wife of Myer Feldman who was advisor to Johnson, Abu Dhabi Oil, UK, NATO, Wallenbergs – prominent Swedish bankers, Norway, Japan, Google, Rockefellers, HSBC, US State Department, US Army and Navy, JP Morgan, Turkey, Latvia, Cyprus, Slovakia, Ukraine… the list is extensive.

An interesting group of countries that will be Facebooks tag team for censoring.

Of course, it doesn’t end there.   According to a Breitbart report in 2016, Ploughshares Fund, which is financed by Soros Open Society, helps fund The Atlantic Council – and was instrumental in helping market the Iran Nuclear Deal with Obama.

So it is official. Facebook has sold out to Soros and as such will manipulate all US elections utilizing their market manipulation techniques, censorship and propaganda to ‘educate us idiots’.

We are in desperate need of a Facebook alternative – quickly!

Three days ago, 3 million Facebook users who use a personality app in conjunction with Facebook had all their private personal details hacked and visible for all the world to see, use, and record for future purposes…   The data sets were controlled by David Stillwell and Michal Kosinski at the University of Cambridge’s The Psychometrics Centre.

Facebook is also using Artificial Intelligence to weed out fake accounts, graphic accounts, violent accounts, hate speech accounts, and those that don’t meet their ‘standards’.   This year alone 583 million ‘fake accounts’ were deleted.   Facebook has well over 2 billion users. The US has greatest number of accounts followed by: India, Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico, UK, Turkey, Philippines, France and Germany.

Odd, but Russia doesn’t even make the top ten…and yet is the dominant villain.

Utilizing the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab to attack all the fake news and hate speech, their senior fellows include: Eliot Higgins of Bellingcat and Ben Nimmo who they humorously coin as their “Sherlocks”.

Ben Nimmo was NATO’s lead press officer on Russia and Ukraine from 2011 to 2014.   He has been called out numerous times for claiming that western individuals who question the neoliberal agenda and criticize their stories are Russian Bots – and thus had their accounts deleted.   Both Nimmo and Higgins, UK operatives, are quite verbal in their anti-Trump, anti-Russian agenda reporting extensively on anti-Assad issues, and pro- White Helmets.  Bellingcat is funded by the UK.

They have both been instrumental in making their false claims about the collusion of Trump and Putin in the election meddling campaign of Mueller, and are quite possibly players in the UK based Trump Dossier scandal.

THEPROPORNOT website is a shadowy organization that claims to have inside information about all the fake news sites – providing a list of those to delete.   The organization has been used as a ‘source’ for Washington Post articles, The Daily Beast, Foreign Policy, CNN, RFE/RL, The Interpreter, and The Kiev Post. According to an investigation done by The Consortium News, all the players work Ukrainian intelligence, and their Broadcasting Board of Governors included two people who actively worked on Hillary’s campaign; Michael Kempner and Karen Kornbluh.

The Swamp in the UK is becoming quite a prolific Player in the pro-Hillary and anti-Trump consortium, which would mean that by default Soros has control over MI6 – and Theresa May.

In essence, the circle always seems to find its way back to Hillary and Soros. And so, we face one of the largest censorship and propaganda campaigns this country has ever seen since the Mockingbird agenda of the CIA.

Germany’s Military – A US Welfare Program

Germany is drawing more and more Communist lines as it vilifies Trump over his refusal to pay for and/or support: the Liberal Order, Climate Change, BREXIT and a common stance on Russia.   DW.com cites, US “eminent” political scientist, G John Ikenberry, as stating that this is not just neglect, but sabotage, and a hostile revisionist power play. WOW!   No mincing words…

First, Ikenberry is a professor at the University of Pennsylvania. He is a known voice of activism and hate speech. Working on ‘several projects for the Council on Foreign Relations, Ikenberry is a well known proponent of World Order, global domination, and the squeezing out of any country who is not on board with this regime, aka Russia. To consider him ‘eminent’ is rather arrogant and pompous to say the least.

The true angst within the EU and Germany is the fact that the US under Trump will henceforth no longer prop up their economies with US taxpayer funds. Including, defense.

Germany’s defense budget accounts for about 2.5% of the total world budget, 1.2% of it’s GDP, and 6.7% of what the US spends NOT including NATO.   As a percent of GDP, Germany would need to triple it’s spending to equal that of the US – topping roughly $120 billion.   The EU is squeezing Germany for more money as a result of BREXIT, and if the US let’s NATO go by the wayside, Germany and France will be left holding an empty bag of trick-or-treats.

Climate Change? 

The Paris Agreement is about two things 1) money, and 2) pinky swear goals.   Trump pulling out of the money part will have absolutely no effect on the climate change outcome given the money is slated for countries whose economies have no impact on climate change whatsoever. It’s a Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme.   As Trump refuses to fund the scheme, US businesses vow to reduce emissions… Isn’t that the goal?   Or is the true goal to create another waste committee to spend billions on infrastructure so as to take over small country’s resources in ‘land grabs’?  Because that’s what the Climate Change money is slated for!

According to National Geographic, 1400 businesses, 20 states and 110 US cities have pledged to reduce emissions. Given that the Paris Agreement is all about ‘pledges’, it would appear that the US is doing it’s part without giving billions to a ‘committee’.

Basically, Germany and other co-dependent countries are whining because they have been given a free ride for so long and haven’t the wherewithal to actually provide for themselves as independent. They have been ‘welfare’ countries for so long that being weaned is making them angry as they cry for entitlement.

Sound familiar? It should, because that is ‘Socialist Communism’.

In addition to NATO, 25 member states of the EU formed PESCO in 2017.   PESCO is a joint effort to create a European military outside of the US welfare budget. Countries have already begun complaining that these funds will stress their other welfare programs and tax government spending.   While a formal budget has yet to even be declared, a goal of 2% has been defined.   But it isn’t just spending – it is about the size of the military itself.

Germany has a land force of just over 60,000 personnel.   Conscription may become a compulsory future for German males, or they may require conscription in order for immigrants to obtain citizenship…   France’s military is considerably larger with a manpower of over 365,000. Sweden has an active personnel log of 22,500, The Netherlands is roughly 59,000 and Norway boasts about 23,000 active.

As a comparison, the US has an active duty personnel of roughly 1.3 million.

Germany’s equipment is in worse disrepair. The Ninth Tank Brigade, which is scheduled to take over NATO’s Very High Readiness Task Force in 2019, has exactly 9 tanks and 3 armoured personal carriers.   It is an embarrassment for Germany and a complete failure of Merkel to compose a ready military.

Germany’s notion that the US is “ambivalent” because Trump is refusing to support the EU while they continue to vilify, demean, and reap the benefits of US taxpayer dollars, is incredibly morally, ethically, insanely hypocritical at best. The real problem is the fact that despite decades of US demands that the EU ramp up their military, they shrugged. There were no consequences, and now they are facing a Trump who is refusing to bow to their grumbling querulous snipes.
