Germany: A Welfare State Subsidized by the US

Germany has pledged to spend $40 billion on climate change initiatives claiming the goals established under the Paris Accord might now be reached by 2030 (although Germany failed to meet goals in 2015, 2018, and 2020).   The plan is to stimulate the purchase of electric vehicles, provide more electric power stations, tax polluting vehicles, improve heating systems and charge a green tax on airfare.  

As of 2016, 84 coal plants provide 42% of electric power.   While Germany has tried to reach sustainable renewable power through wind, solar, and biofuel, with emphasis on wind, a huge snag put a dent in that scheme. Wind farms that were supposed to have a useful life of 20-25 years are dying after 15 years, five years before their financial breakeven. Dismantling the worthless windmills is costly, includes transportation to a windmill ‘dump’ and has created a windmill graveyard.

But hey, Germany has a balanced budget, and a great economy! Right?

That is particularly true however, it is due to the fact that Germany initiated unfair trade tariffs with the US and has consistently refused to meet their 2% of GDP obligation on defense spending.   In 2017, Germany spent just over $45 billion representing 1.2% of GDP. Why the shortfall if they have the money within the budget ‘surplus’?

Because they don’t want to pay, its FREE socialist money extracted from US citizens.

Out of 26 EU countries comprising NATO, 3 contribute their fair share or more: Greece, Poland and Estonia.

The US has 35,000 troops and 13,000 civilians stationed in Germany for defense. When the US asked Germany to ante in some troops to aid in the Syrian conflict – Germany declined stating ‘they couldn’t move hastily’.

Rules of engagement – they decried!

We defend Germany. US taxpayers pay for the shortfall of 23 EU countries including Germany so that Germany can have a balanced budget. In fact, in 2014 Germany’s surplus budget was .6%. If they had held to their contractual obligation for defense, they would have had a budget deficit. Each and every year.  And instead of their debt shrinking – their debt would have been growing – just like the US.

In fact, including Germany 9 EU countries had a surplus budget, and eight of the nine contributed 25%-80% less than the required 2%: Netherlands, Sweden, Czech Republic, Denmark, Luxembourg, Bulgaria and Austria.

In essence, this means US taxpayers have been subsidizing the EU’s wealth to the detriment of our own trade and budget.

Germany’s response?

They have determined that by 2024, they ‘hope’ to reach a 1.5% defense spending level… Obviously contractual obligations between the EU and the US are meaningless to Germans. Nationalist pride – for Germans, disdain for the evil Americans.

Back to wind energy.

Wind turbines cost about $4million each.   There are roughly 30,000 wind turbines in Germany today.   That would require an investment of $120billion. Given the legal ramifications, Germany now has a two year wait for a wind turbine permit.  Issues have arisen that have hit the industry, including; distance from residential neighborhoods, legal disputes, a shorter lifespan than estimated, conservation, noise and endangered species killed by the blades.   And by 2021, thousands of the existing turbines will be demolished as they have outlived their lifespan, lifeless monuments.

So how will Germany supply the electricity for the mandated electric cars?   Coal.  That dirty, nasty coal that makes Germans sneer at the US.

$40 billion for electric cars to run on coal fired electricity generating plants – while demanding the US continue subsidizing the EU’s defense spending on NATO.

NATO has obviously outlived itself and become ‘nonessential’.

But Germany and France in particular need NATO as long as the US pays for it. Germany’s military is a disaster.   Their equipment is obsolete.  Jets and helicopters useless junk.  Merkel’s own military plane – defective.  A total of 3300 deployed military personnel.  Dysfunctional weapons.   Unfit naval vessels.   If Germany were attacked today, they would be obliterated without the US.   The US pays 14times what Germany and France each contribute to defense despite the US economy being just 5 times that of Germany and 6 times that of France.

So while the German economy looks inspiring from a simplistic view, the truth is it has thrived on the back of US taxpayers for decades while defending unfair tariffs and providing -0- military strength. Of course the Germans don’t like Trump. Trump has vowed to make Germany, France and the EU responsible for their defense obligations while normalizing tariffs. That will eliminate any surplus while creating a truth, a real Germany, economically accountable, reliant on its own defense.

Germany is essentially a welfare state of the US.  And Germans have come to believe they are entitled to US taxpayer income ‘redistribution’ to prop up their wealth.

 

Liberal Word Manipulation

It was less than a decade ago that the definition of religion was the ‘belief in God’, or ‘gods’.   The criteria was important for many reasons one of which was status as a nontaxable entity.   And then sometime in the morphology of propaganda, religion was redefined and few seem to have noticed. Scholars have thus created a virtual monster with Emile Durkheim infusing this rather convoluted definition: “a unified system of beliefs and practices relative to sacred things, that is to say things set apart and forbidden – beliefs and practices which unite into one single moral community called a church, all those who adhere to them.”

As a result the limits of rationale were pushed to the extreme when the church of spaghetti claimed they filled this criteria. They wore a colander for a headpiece and worshiped – spaghetti.

Another form of Word Art is the creation of an entirely new use for a word such as ‘protectionism’.   Utilized to further condemn Trump, the concept states, “Most of the US trading partners consider its trading policies as manifestations of protectionism.”   Everyone assumes this must be a bad thing and move on without having the most basic understanding of how this statement is grossly manipulated.

“Protectionism is the economic policy of restricting imports from other countries through methods such as tariffs on imported goods, import quotas, and a variety of other government regulations.”

How could ‘tariffs’ be attributed to Trump?   Tariffs were first imposed in the US in 1789. They were the largest source of government revenue prior to the 1913 declaration that called for a federal income tax under Woodrow Wilson, the father of the precipitated fall of income equality.

At one point tariffs were imposed at the rate of 51% in Great Britain, Russia climbed to 73%, Germany was 40% etc…  Trump had yet to be born.  And Protectionism was a global institution.

According to the World Bank, Africa is the largest practitioner of ‘free trade’. The World Bank also states that as a direct result Africa is less industrialized than it was four decades ago.  Oops!

Balanced Trade is Trump’s agenda.   The Balance of Trade is essential in order to maintain comparative absolutes. The US Trade Deficit has grown from $-0- to $891 billion between 1950 and 2018. That deficit has a significant wobbling impact on the US economy while lifting other economies, specifically;   China and Germany. This deficit is partially funded by an imbalance in tariffs.  An imbalance that Trump is diligently working to correct.

So, protectionism was actually at the forefront of Germany, France, Canada, Mexico and China until Trump.

Another nuance that has gone unnoticed is the fact that Global Warming morphed to Climate Change, morphed to Climate Science. Science was likely a creative means to apply legitimacy to a highly charged manipulated ‘bubble’.   That ‘bubble’ has made a few individuals vastly wealthy on its propaganda, including Al Gore.   The Socialists and Progressives clamored aboard the con man’s wagon and began touting the elixir. But few understand where the $$$$ go to ‘fight Global Warming/Science.  Africa is the dominant beneficiary of those $$$$, a continent where there are no global warming ramifications… And the absolute hypocrisy is somehow – lost.

‘Reproductive Rights’ is another bastardization of the English language.   Reproductive means to reproduce which requires the mutual consent of a man and a woman in order to create a child.   Once that child is created, one is no longer desiring the right to reproduce because it has already occurred.   It is no longer a reproductive right, it is now a human right.

The ‘Right’ was initially coined in 1968 by Tehran in which parents were legally allowed the right to determine the number of children they wanted to have and the spacing between.   It wasn’t until 1994 that Cairo, in the midst of an HIV/AIDS crisis, declared that Reproductive Rights were extended to include care for sexually transmitted diseases, and post-abortion care.  In 1995, Beijing made their own determination and stated that the definition was about reproduction and any forthcoming child was the responsibility of both the man and woman involved in said reproduction.

IN 2002, the UN put it’s proverbial arse on the line after being accused of advocating coerced abortions.  The reason for the coercion?   Quite simply – Depopulation.  In order to cleanse that abuse, Women’s Right’s were rewired to emphasize the right to an abortion.   And in essence the coercion became a propaganda tool in which women were the target. And they fell for it.

As a result, the emphasis of Reproductive Rights became – abortion on demand which has absolutely nothing to do with Reproduction Rights, Human Rights, or Women’s Rights.

There are a host of other words that have been artfully redefined; judgment, patriotism, nationalism, and even – Socialism, which has been regurgitated to be defined as:   “an economic and political system where the ways of making a living (factories, offices, etc.) are owned by the workers who run them and the people who depend on them, meaning the value made belongs to the people who make it, instead of a group of private owners.”

In London, the first consciously Socialist movement was lead by Karl Marx and Mikhail Bokunin, both of whom were Russian Jewish anarchist revolutionaries. Their ideology instituted the Paris Commune in which the concept of Separation of Church and State was instituted to squelch religion and promote secularism. Within 2 months, Paris defeated the principles.

WWI ushered in Socialist Doctrine in the former Tzarist Soviet Russia. Nazi Germany was built on the Socialist Party platform by Hitler. And the EU Commission indoctrinated 28 countries into a massive propaganda wherein an individual, a city, a nation, were subject to the rule of a bastardized monarchial totalitarian select few.

In essence, the rule that leveled the Soviet Union into economic collapse was subsequently modeled by the EU. Thus, the definition was altered from Communist Marxism to Equality and Rights.

Word Art – it isn’t really Art at all, it is simply another tool of manipulation that has been parlayed for the purpose of indoctrination.   And like sheeple, the people baaed and fell onto their backs – caste.

Merkel: Failed Values Amidst a Purveyor of Fake News

After Merkel openly ushered in millions of immigrants between 2015 and 2017 at the behest of Soros, she is visibly backtracking.  Austria is urging border protections, Italy is shipping immigrants to Spain, and Merkel is mumbling that she needs to talk to Brussels before she is allowed to say anything, because, well, she doesn’t know what Soros wants anymore…

After the EU decried “FOUL” because Trump suggested that the US should no longer be responsible for Europe’s military, the EU Commission under Juncker’s instructions announced a European Defense Fund that would not protect anyone outside the EU.   Of course, the decision to create EDF was due to border threats. Apparently EDF financing will be progressive and use taxpayers as the basis for what would be a new tax…(I wonder if they know this yet)?. Juncker is demanding member states ante up 5.5 billion Euro per year after 2020, and 2.56 billion per year beginning err, last year, although no one has actually contributed anything – yet.

Germany’s foreign minister, Maas, has issued his counter measure to Trump’s America First by stating, Europe First!  Mentioning ‘values and interests’ as his platform is a bit mystifying given Germany is forced to admit that they will fail to meet the goals of the Paris Climate Accord by 2020. Oops.

Maas, who is head of Germanys Social Democratic Party, must also answer for his party’s decision to offer ‘feminist porn’ for free on public broadcasting stations throughout Germany as a means of equalizing divisive sexist pornography which is apparently a favorite pastime beginning at the age of 13.  This value comes on the heels of massive child sex trafficking allegations.

Merkel is arguing the Trudeau platform regarding trade with the US by complaining that although the US does have deficits in the trade of goods, it does not in the trade of services. Foremost, this does not even address ‘tariffs’, but secondly it fails to address the fact that trade in services generates tax revenue for the country that is receiving the service as well as jobs.

According to a document released by the European Parliament in 2015, trade in services is a very gray area given valuations are estimates, can vary widely by country in methodology of valuation, and are not a verifiable number.  In addition, ‘intellectual property’ is definitively a varying value that can be worth billions until it’s patent expires which in the pharma industry is roughly 7-10 years.   The vast majority of trade falls within what is called ‘category iii, or (c)’ referenced as:  “…a service provider of one party through a commercial presence in the territory of any other party”.  This means that a commercial establishment of the US would have created a facility in another country, such as a bank or a pharmaceutical company.  Such company would likely employ staff within the host country and generate taxable revenue.

The TISA agreement (Trade in Services Agreement) which is the basis of all Service Trade is ensnared in ‘secrecy’ which makes the rules and negotiations completely confidential and lacking in transparency.  Thus identifying the services and how they are valued is of little merit.

And lastly, Germany’s values have been purged again.  It has come to haunt Merkel that she has failed to address the ramifications of a German cult that was organized in Chile wherein children were kidnapped, enslaved, tortured, and sexually abused since – 1961.  Despite the Chilean government requesting Germany to resolve the ongoing problem and establish a fund for the survivors – Merkel has apparently failed to do anything at all although her government has promised, pinky swear, to develop a plan of action as of June 30th.

For Merkel to continually create an arrogant aura of superior values, superior knowledge, and a superior attitude with regard to all the above Germany First structures, in reality she embodies a truly abysmal failed Leadership built on fake censored media which is monitored and edited by Soros – DW.com.
