    MUNICH (Reuters) - U.S. Vice President Mike Pence rebuked European powers over Iran and Venezuela on Saturday in a renewed attack on Washington’s traditional allies, rejecting a call by Germany’s chancellor to include Russia in global cooperation efforts. In speeches and in private talks at the Munich Security Conference, Pence and Chancellor Angela Merkel laid out competing visions for how the West should address world crises. ...

    The billionaire elites have thus taken the opportunity to change the face of America permanently with the help of the U.N. “Do not allow America to fall as Europe has fallen.” – Katie Hopkins The Sunday Times wrote ten years ago that a billionaire’s club had met secretly, at the initiative of Bill Gates, to discuss how their philanthropy could be used to implement “ways of tackling a disastrous environmental, social, and industrial threat” of overpopulation. Ted Turner, Oprah Winfrey, Michael Bloomberg, Warren Buffet, George Soros and David Rockefeller Jr. were among those in attendance. (May 24, 2009) Their desires...

    I WAS TELLING MY FRENCH READERS ABOUT AOC’S CRAZY GREEN NEW DEAL ON A FRENCH-SPEAKING POLITICAL MEDIA. Even in Socialist France, where people suffer daily from “social justice”; where the government confiscates every month 50% of their pay check; where they pay 18% VAT and their tax return with what they have left; where 10% of the people, 25% of the youth is unemployed – and when they are lucky to find a job, it’s never in the field they studied for; where health care costs three times more than in the US – but they emphasize that it’s free...

    Are there any pro-America, pro-freedom democrats left? Everywhere I look I see democrats raving about full out socialism and open borders. With this coming election, looks like they're preparing for full frontal attacks on American sovereignty, capitalism, coal gas & oil, manufacturing & industry, our Judeo-Christianity heritage and freedom itself. It appears the democrats smell blood in the water and feel they've brainwashed enough fools and smuggled in enough alien voters and have perfected fraud and ballot harvesting to the point that they can win any election, so are pulling out all the stops. Capitalism-killing "Green" New Deals, open-borders, full...
  • The Yellow Vest Movement: Does What Happens in Paris Matter to America?

    02/08/2019 4:24:48 AM PST · by Old Teufel Hunden · 14 replies ^ | Feb 7, 2019 | Joseph Micallef
    Roughly 12 weeks ago, French citizens in Paris took to the streets to protest the imposition of sharp, new taxes on fuel. The protesters wore yellow plastic vests, similar to the kind traffic coordinators or construction workers often wear. In France, such vests are mandatory equipment in cars and must be worn by drivers if they are forced to stop because of a roadside emergency. The movement was quickly dubbed the Yellow Vest Movement. Over the month of December, it grew to encompass several hundred thousand protesters, spread to France's major cities, and resulted in widespread damage and acts of...

    It is with sadness, agony, and dread that I see daily evidence of Western democracies turning to Communism “We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and then bid the geldings to be fruitful.” – C.S. Lewis, The Abolition of Man “It’s a brave new world,” one in which radicals are elected to high office in a system more corrupt and ignorant than ever imagined possible. The voters believe in the “shiny illusions of socialist/communist hell and are racing to implementation.”

    WHEN AMERICA took a protectionist turn two years ago, it provoked dark warnings about the miseries of the 1930s. Today those ominous predictions look misplaced. Yes, China is slowing. And, yes, Western firms exposed to China, such as Apple, have been clobbered. But in 2018 global growth was decent, unemployment fell and profits rose. In November President Donald Trump signed a trade pact with Mexico and Canada. If talks over the next month lead to a deal with Xi Jinping, relieved markets will conclude that the trade war is about political theatre and squeezing a few concessions from China, not...

    DAVOS, Switzerland - From centre-stage in Davos last year, President Donald Trump told the world’s corporate bosses that America is a great place to invest. It hasn’t quite turned out that way. Foreign direct investment to the United States fell in 2018, and companies gathered at the World Economic Forum in the Swiss Alps this year say they are worried Trump’s trade war with China will dampen the global economy and business investments even further. One key complaint here this week: Companies increasingly reliant on consumers in China have had to lower their earnings outlooks as the world’s second-largest economy...

    DAVOS (Reuters) - As businessman and bankers sip their morning coffee in a hotel lobby, admiring the Swiss Alps, a disturbing scene is unfolding in the car park below: men with guns are ordering people onto their knees and stealing their watches. {snip} With anti-immigration policies gaining major support across Western countries, the aid group that runs the simulation wants politicians, officials and chief executives attending Davos to understand the issue from the frightening perspective of a refugee. “It’s more effective now, the message,” said Sally Begbie, director of Hong Kong-based Crossroads Foundation. “We bring it to Davos because there...

    Western culture and society pose more health risks to migrants and refugees than they do to host nations, according to a World Health Organization study. The first report on refugee and migrant health in the west by WHO Europe suggests new arrivals are at risk of falling ill while in transit to another country, but face further dangers when they arrive in a host nation because of unhealthy living conditions, poor diet and the obesity epidemic. The report on the health of refugees and migrants in the WHO European region says they do not transmit diseases or place a disproportionate...

    There is a growing feeling of distrust in governments and the media among the general population, according to the Edelman report. It states that there has been a 3 percent increase between 2018 and 2019 in the level of distrust towards the government and the media. Overall, the general feeling of distrust has hit a record high this year from 2017. There is also a clear difference between mass population and the informed public, with the return to the largest-ever trust gap between these two, since 2017. This trust gap is particularly evident in developed countries, including the U.K., Canada,...

Despite announcing its first gigafactory outside of the United States in Shanghai barely over a week ago, the electronic car maker will be handing over 3,000 of its 45,000-strong workforce their leaving papers.

    Francis: A Real "Schism" Is Under Way - But Only In Politics Humanity encounters "serious difficulties", writes Pope Francis in a letter to the president of the Pontifical Academy for Life (dated January 6). According to Francis, the cleavage between the "obsession for one's own wellbeing" and the "shared happiness of humanity" seems to become deeper to the point that one may think, "that between the individual and the human community a real schism is underway." The term "schism" has primarily a religious connotation, meaning a breakaway from the Church. By using it in a political context, Francis seems to...

    Analyst: Pope’s Popularity Slump Marks Fading Trust in Globalism The approval rating of Pope Francis declined all over Europe during the course of 2018, a new analysis observed Wednesday, in large part because of his ever-less popular pro-immigration stance and other globalist positions. Among German Catholics, the pope’s popularity plummeted by a staggering 20 percentage points in one year, notes analyst Francesco Galietti, who runs the political risk consultancy Policy Sonar, and with Francis at its helm, the Catholic Church as a whole also suffered a drop of 9 percent in its approval rating among the same constituency.

    GWB Institute ^ | 2018 | William McKenzie
    Compassionate conservatism remains as relevant today as when President George W. Bush campaigned for president on its principles in 2000. In this conversation, President Bush takes a deep dive into the philosophy. From helping displaced workers at home through economic policy, to defending the oppressed overseas, to ensuring a quality education for all, the core responsibility of government is to care for its people. "I do think respect and civility are possible. Ultimately, wise leaders are going to sense this feeling of frustration among voters and rise above all of this. For example, when Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and I...

    Climate change – arguably humanity’s most existential challenge – requires urgent global action. As the World Economic Forum’s Global Risk Report 2019 will show only too clearly, environmental crises – notably a failure to tackle climate change – are among the likeliest and highest-impact risks that the world faces over the next decade. Indeed, 2018 saw record levels of costs due to extreme weather events. The urgent scientific message on climate change finds it hard to cut through the news cycle and the competing agendas of our ever more complex world. The effects of the Fourth Industrial Revolution on the...

    It has long been noted that the leftist movement had transformed into a kind of religious cult – the Cult of victim seekers.Like any other cult, the leftists have their dogmas, their worldview, their taboos, and their idols. The list of “victims” of this cult is impressive. Well-known recent “victims” are nature (destroyed by evil capitalists), domestic animals (evil capitalists mock them), climate (the temperature of the air is warmed up by all the same evil capitalists), and sexual minorities. It is not surprising, therefore, that the numerous left-wing “green” parties in all countries are often compared to watermelons: they...

    ... The modern leftists are fighting so fiercely for “the rights of illegal immigrants” not because the fate of immigrants worries them in any way, but because Globalists see the illegal immigrants as the main “engine of the revolution,” which must bring about socialist transformations and catapult them to power. Therefore, the more “engines” there are in the country, the better for the Globalist party elite. Hence, their irrational and contrarian sense calls for opening the borders of the United States, the dissolution of the border patrol service, and the admission of non-citizens to participate in elections. The position of...

History confirmed the fallacy of this approach. • The Trotskyists (“Bolsheviks”) argued that power in one socialist country in a capitalist encirclement would not be retained by any terror, and it would be necessary to simultaneously make socialist revolutions/coups in all countries without exception. History confirmed that Trotsky was right that the power cannot be held. • The Fascists (“Mensheviks”) argued that the bloody revolutionary redistribution of the wealth would only deter the people from socialist ideas....
