Before we get to the article at hand many might ask why we cover political and health issues when our main focus in the stock markets and the financial arena.  The short and simple answer is that all these fields are connected; we don’t have free market forces anymore. Everything is manipulated; from the food, you eat to data you are provided.

 If you are aware of this you can plan accordingly. Identifying the problem is over 80% of the solution and this is why most people don’t know what to do because they don’t really understand the problem. Now you know why we are the only financial website that covers such a wide array of topics that on the surface appear to be unrelated but are in fact, deeply interwoven.  Mass psychology is a very powerful tool and if employed correctly can help you spot the grotesque levels of manipulation the masses are subjected to. We strongly suggest that you view or read or view Plato’s allegory of the cave.  You might also find the following article to be of interest:

Inflation, according to Merriam-Webster online dictionary is defined as follows: a continuing rise in the general price level usually attributed to an increase in the volume of money and credit relative to available goods and services

We all pretty much have felt the effects of inflation in one form or another. However, economists and the central bankers chose to define inflation as an increase in the price of goods. This is an ingenious way to hide what they are doing as the real definition of inflation is an increase in the supply of money. If they can inflate the money supply and control the cost of some goods, to create the illusion that all is well. Then they have more or less won as the average person has come to associate inflation in terms of rising prices. Inflation the Silent Killer Tax that’s destroying Middle Class America

The wailing and keening over the choice of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to head the EPA appears to be a lead indicator of a coming revolution far beyond Reagan’s.

“Trump Taps Climate Skeptic For Top Environmental Post,” said the Wall Street Journal. “Climate Change Denial,” bawled a disbelieving New York Times, which urged the Senate to put Pruitt in a “dust bin.”

Clearly, though his victory was narrow, Donald Trump remains contemptuous of political correctness and defiant of liberal ideology.

For environmentalism, as conservative scholar Robert Nisbet wrote in 1982, is more than the “most important social movement” of the 20th century. It is a militant and dogmatic faith that burns heretics.

“Environmentalism is well on its way to becoming the third great wave of redemptive struggle in Western history,” wrote Nisbet, “the first being Christianity, the second modern socialism.” In picking a “climate denier” to head EPA, Trump is rejecting revealed truth.

Yet, as with his choices of Steve Bannon as White House strategist and Sen. Jeff Sessions as attorney general, he has shown himself to be an unapologetic apostate to liberal orthodoxy.

Indeed, with his presidency, we may be entering a post-liberal era.

In 1950, literary critic Lionel Trilling wrote, “In the United States at this time liberalism is not only the dominant but even the sole intellectual tradition. For it is the plain fact that nowadays there are no conservative or reactionary ideas in general circulation.”

The rise of the conservative movement of Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan revealed liberalism’s hour to be but a passing moment. Yet, today, something far beyond conservatism seems to be afoot.

As Hegel taught, in the dialectic of history the thesis calls into existence the antithesis. What we seem to be seeing is a rejection, and a counter-reformation against the views and values that came out of the social and political revolutions of the 1960s.

Consider the settled doctrine Trump disrespected with Pruitt.

We have long been instructed that climate change is real, that its cause is man-made, that it imperils the planet with rising seas, hurricanes and storms, that all nations have a duty to curb the release of carbon dioxide to save the world for future generations.

This is said to be “scientific truth,” and “climate deniers” are like people who believe the earth is flat and the sun revolves around it. Some hold the matter to be so grave that climate deniers should be censored for promoting socially destructive falsehoods.

Yet, the people remain skeptical.

Their worry is not that the rising waters of the Med will swamp the Riviera, but that tens of millions of Arabs, Muslims and Africans may be coming across to swamp Europe, and that millions of Mexicans may cross the Rio Grande to swamp the USA.

Call them climate deniers or climate skeptics, but they see the establishment as running the Big Con to effect a transfer of wealth and power away from the people – and to themselves.

Across the West, establishments have lost credibility.

The proliferation of minority parties, tearing off pieces of the traditional ruling parties, points to a growing distrust in ruling regimes and a return to identifying with the nation and tribe whence one came.

A concomitant of this is a growing disbelief in egalitarianism and in the equality of all races, creeds, nations, cultures and peoples.

The Supreme Court may say all religions are equal and all must be treated equally. But do Americans believe Christianity and Islam are equal? How could they, when Christians claim their faith has as its founder the Son of God and God himself?

After calling for a ban on Muslim immigration, Trump was elected president. After inviting a million refugees from Syria’s civil war into Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel admits having made a mistake and is now in favor of letting German cities and towns decide if women should be allowed to wear burqas.

A sea change in thought is taking place in the West.

Liberalism appears to be a dying faith. America’s elites may still preach their trinity of values: diversity, democracy, equality. But the majorities in America and Europe are demanding that the borders be secured and Third World immigrants kept out.

The next president disbelieves in free trade. He wants a border wall. He questions the wisdom of our Mideast wars and the need for NATO. He is contemptuous of democratist dogma that how other nations rule themselves is our business. He rejects transnationalism and globalism.

“There is no global anthem, no global currency, no certificate of global citizenship,” said Trump in Cincinnati, “We pledge allegiance to one flag, and that flag is the American flag. From now on, it’s going to be America first. … We’re going to put ourselves first.”

That’s not Adlai Stevenson or Jimmy Carter or Barack Obama.

Nothing seems settled or certain. All is in flux. But change is coming. “Things are in the saddle, and ride mankind.”

African Nations Furious over Possible Collapse of Climate Change Agreement

“I personally dont believe in Climate Change and feel its just the Elitists cause to control the world.”

 

This morning’s key headlines from GenerationalDynamics.com

The surprise election victory of Donald Trump, who has called climate change “a hoax,” has been an extremely unpleasant shock to African leaders attending a climate change conference in Marrakesh, Morocco. Prior to the election, they had hoped that the international climate change agreement would be a financial bonanza, and they are angry now that they see all that money slipping away, and are concerned that the entire climate change effort may be near collapse.

A statement by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to the Marrakech conference on Wednesday urged a rapid scale-up in funding for climate change programs, especially to support developing countries. “Finance and investment hold the key to achieving low-emissions and resilient societies,” he said.

Many leaders are urging that implementation of the climate change agreement be sped up so that as much as possible can be done while president Barack Obama is still in office.

World Bank president, Jim Yong Kim, said that he’s trying to mobilize as much as financing as possible.”

It is not just about trying to persuade donors and financiers to put up more money, although we are definitely trying to do that, but it also about creating the environment that crowds in a lot more financing. Even if we have the 100 billion dollars we are talking about, it is not nearly enough to reach our goals…

We are trying to find ways to improve the way the existing banking sector understands and considers the risks of climate smart investments.

Kenya’s president Uhuru Kenyatta said that the developed countries have an obligation to provide plenty of money to developing countries like Kenya:

We should aim to ensure achievement of the long-term global goal of stabilizing the global temperature increase to below 1.5 degrees Celsius above the preindustrial levels, which gives hope to the most vulnerable countries and communities…

The process should also take into consideration the obligations of developed country Parties to provide additional, predictable and sustainable support in terms of finance, technology and capacity building to meet the adaptation and mitigation needs of the developing country Parties.

One thing that we have learned over the years is that giving free money to African countries is mostly a disaster. After decades of giving huge amounts of aid to African countries, the people are just as poor and the infrastructure is little changes. Money given to an African leader is used to buy weapons, or to build a new glittering presidential palace, or to be deposited in a foreign bank account.

The ‘science’ of climate change

As I’ve written in the past:

  • Humans may well have caused and be causing climate change, but climate change scientists have been making predictions for 20 years, and have been consistently wrong.
  • Climate change will take care of itself. It is already happening, as cities like Beijing and New Delhi are choked with smog and force the governments to adopt clean air policies. Renewable energy prices are falling without any international climate agreement.
  • The proposed climate change agreement contains no plan, no roadmap, nothing that shows how to accomplish the stated goals, because no such plan or roadmap exists or could exist.
  • Predictions by climate change scientists are always wrong because it’s impossible to predict future mitigating technologies, such as nanotechnologies and the Singularity, and because they assume that there will never be another world war.

I’m not aware of any evidence to support the belief that any money spent on the basis of an international climate change agreement would not be completely wasted. BBC

Judicial Watch: Obama Attendance at Paris Climate Change Conference Cost Taxpayers $2,976,296.20 – Judicial Watch

Obama Travel Cost Taxpayers over $82 million to Date

(Washington DC)—Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained records from the U.S. Secret Serviceand the Department of the Air Force detailing the costs of Obama’s trip to attend the 2015 Paris Climate Change Conference.  Secret Service charges for Obama and his staff to attend the Conference cost taxpayers $1,324,171.60.  Flight expenses cost $1,652,124.60, bringing the total expenditure for the conference to at least $2,976,296.20.  To date, Obama’s known travel expenses total $82,606,703.13

Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for these documents on January 6, 2016.  The records were released in response to a FOIA lawsuit filed on May 6, 2016, (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Homeland Security (No. 1:16-cv-00863)).

The Secret Service expense report is as follows:

  • $82,991.60 was spent on air and rail travel.
  • $706,065 was spent on Parisian hotels.
  • $531,598 for rental vehicles.
  • $10,820 in overtime pay was run up.
  • Cell phones were rented for $2,562.
  • Cell phone usage cost $679.
  • A copier was rented for $652.
  • $624 in “miscellaneous” expenses.

The Secret Service detail stayed in a number of Parisian hotels.  The most money was spent at the InterContinental Paris Le Grand, a historic hotel built in 1862 that is called a “luxury” hotel that “defines historic grandeur,” according to its website.  Accommodations were also booked at the Hilton Astor, Marriott Ambassador, Marriott Rive Gauche, and Mercure Tour Eiffel.

According to Air Force documents two planes were used for the trip to Paris, both Air Force One and a C-32A (which is generally used by either the secretary of state or the first lady):

  • Air Force One travelled a total of 14.4 hours @ $180,118 per hour for a total of $1,404,927.00.
  • The C-32A travelled 15.6 hours @ $15,846 per hour for a total of $247,197.60.

Other expenses for additional cabinet members’ travel and catering, Secret Service meals, meeting rooms, etc. are not included in these totals.

The controversial Paris Climate Conference, also known as COP21, spanned from November 30, 2015, to December 12, 2015.  Travel to the conferencereportedly burned 300,000 tons of carbon dioxide, seemingly defeating the purpose of the meeting of world leaders.  Critics also contend President Obama’s executive action implementing the Paris Climate Agreement circumvents the constitutional requirement that treaties become law only after ratification by the U.S. Senate.

“Obama’s Paris junket is another example of wasteful and unnecessary presidential travel that abuses the taxpayers, the military, and the U.S. Secret Service,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

After Brexit, UN Climate Regime in Trouble

Written by 

In addition to the devastating blow dealt to globalism generally, the historic British “Brexit” vote to exit the European Union could have far-reaching implications for the United Nations “climate” regime. Concocted in Paris last year by the UN and its member governments, the controversial deal is unprecedented in terms of its full-blown promotion of regional governments, such as the EU, as crucial players in imposing the international agenda. But with Brexit, that gamble has turned against the globalists, and now they are scrambling to save face amid a victorious “leave” campaign led largely by climate skeptics and realists.

Whether the Paris Agreement is doomed yet remains unclear. Either way, though, the UN “climate” agreement is on increasingly shaky ground. Among other headaches for UN climate alarmists and internationalists hoping to centralize power at the global level is the United States. GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is already vowing to blow up the Paris deal and de-fund the UN bureaucracy responsible for it. Indeed, U.S. funding for the UN “climate” machine is now illegal under federal law. Plus, there is practically zero chance of ratification for the deal by the U.S. Senate, as required by the Constitution for all treaties.

Other governments are also weary of ratifying the controversial scheme for various reasons, even with promised bribes to Third World dictators who play along. And with the man-made global-warming theory looking increasingly discredited — just 40 percent of Americans believe the theory in polls, as observable evidence debunking it continues to grow — the clock is running out on the alarmists. Now, the British referendum to leave the EU represents the latest monkey wrench to be thrown into the gears of the UN’s “climate” agenda. Establishment-controlled “green” groups and “news” outlets are already sounding the alarm, calling on Prime Minister David Cameron to ink the Paris Agreement prior to leaving office in case a “skeptic” government takes the reins.

Before the Brexit referendum last month on whether to secede from the increasingly totalitarian EU, UN climate czarina Christiana Figueres warned that the UN pseudo-treaty purporting to control “global warming” would have to be rewritten if the Brits voted to leave. Speaking at a June 22 press conference next to EU Energy Union Commissioner Maroš Šefcovic, a “former” communist from Slovakia, and billionaire U.S. extremist Michael Bloomberg, whose fanaticism on global warming is second only to his crusade to disarm Americans by any means necessary, Figueres was clear that if Brexit were to happen, the UN scheme could not just march on uninterrupted.

Basically, she said, if the British people reject the EU, the Paris deal would need to be renegotiated and rewritten. “From the point of view of the Paris Agreement, the U.K. is part of the EU and has put in its effort as part of the EU so anything that would change that would require a recalibration,” said the controversial UN figure, who famously opened one of the UN’s infamous carbon dioxide-spewing “climate” conferences with a prayer to the Mayan goddess of war, human sacrifice, and cannibalism. “In principle, it is actually, historically, we say, as humankind, we are moving towards larger and larger tents of collaboration […] rather than in the opposite way.”

The British voted to leave the EU anyway, sending prices for CO2-emissions permits in the super-state’s so-called carbon market — a key component of the EU’s plan under the Paris scheme — plunging by close to 20 percent. At first, Figueres and other UN bureaucrats and alarmist politicians may have thought they were bluffing, aiming to keep the British people under the thumb of the EU via fear-mongering. Now, though, the reality is setting in, and the Paris pseudo-treaty is in jeopardy. Figueres may have been wrong about the globalist mantra of centralizing power more and more, or “larger and larger tents of collaboration” as she put it, but she was right about the threat Brexit poses to the UN’s “climate” machinations.

The unaccountable EU super-state, which now lords over the formerly independent peoples of Europe practically without restraint, pledged at the UN climate summit in Paris to slash the CO2 emissions of its disenfranchised subjects by 40 percent below 1990 levels by the year 2030. The commitment was “to be fulfilled jointly.” But without the British to endure an outsized dose of the economic pain, loss of prosperity, and diminishing liberty, that lawless pledge by the EU commissars is in serious jeopardy. Indeed, even the globalist push to have regional governments take a leading role in imposing UN schemes may be blowing up in the internationalists’ faces.

In Article 4 of the Paris Agreement, for example, the agreement outlines a plan for “regional economic integration organizations,” such as the EU, “to  act  jointly” under the agreement. It also calls on those regional super-governments to notify the UN bureaucracy of “the emission level allocated to each Party (national government).” In other words, emerging regional governments such as the European Union, the African Union, the Union of South American States, the Eurasian Union, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, and other sovereignty-crushing outfits are expected to play a major role in allocating “emission levels” to entire nations.

That means illegitimate and unelected bureaucrats will decide how much CO2,” also known as “the gas of life,” nations will be able to release. In short, it is rationing, on an unprecedented scale, due to false scarcity imposed by internationalists themselves. The implications for liberty and prosperity are gargantuan. Consider that every human activity — including breathing — emits CO2. (Though man-made CO2 emissions account for a fraction of one percent of all greenhouse gases naturally in the atmosphere). By purporting to grant regional governments loyal to the UN the power to limit and regulate those emissions, negotiators in Paris attempted to literally hand those regional governments power over life and death, over all energy, all economic activity, and more.

The deal also purports to allow and even encourage regional governments, such as the EU or any of the other super-states being imposed on people around the world, to vote in place of their member states, with the same number of votes as it has member states. “Any regional economic integration organization that  becomes a Party to this Agreement … shall be bound by all the obligations under this Agreement,” the Paris deal explains. So if you live under the EU or any other autocratic would-be super-state that signs up to the UN scheme, you can kiss your nation’s liberties and self-government goodbye.

In keeping with the globalist strategy for building what its architects often refer to publicly as a “New World Order,” the UN agreement is packed with references to the regional super-governments being used to shackle nations and peoples worldwide. It is clear that these Soviet-style regimes are being positioned to play an increasingly massive role in the lives of people around the world, all under the supervision of the UN. In fact, even the preamble to the Paris Agreement vows to “uphold and promote regional and international cooperation in order to mobilize stronger and more ambitious climate action.”

The scheme also calls on parties to the UN scheme to “strengthen regional cooperation on adaptation” and “establish regional centers.” By “regional cooperation,” the document is of course referring to supranational governance at the regional level — the EU, the AU, ASEAN, and other such schemes. In all, there are 17 provisions relating to regionalism in the UN document, which is just over 30 pages long. With British voters dealing a crushing blow to regionalism by supporting Brexit, though, the agenda just suffered a major defeat.

Even domestically, the Brexit vote may have major implications on British “climate” policies. For one, many of the movement’s leaders and its voters are deeply skeptical of the man-made global-warming theory, as well as the policies to allegedly deal with the alleged problem. “It is highly unlikely that the party-political green consensus that has existed in parliament for the last 10 years will survive the seismic changes that are now unfolding after Britain’s independence day,” said Global Warming Policy Foundation director Benny Peiser, citing the “astonishing self-determination and skepticism of the British people in [the] face of an unprecedented fear campaign.”

The UN and Obama are pretending that if enough Third World dictators can be bribed (with your tax money) into “ratifying” the pseudo-treaty before a potential President Trump, that it will be more difficult for the deal to be shredded. That is, of course, nonsense, as the scheme was never ratified by the U.S. Senate or even presented to it for ratification, making it essentially a glorified press release by Obama and his cohorts, with accompanying illegal and unconstitutional decrees with no force of law. In short, the foundation of the entire scheme is built on quicksand, and it appears to be in the process of swallowing up the scam.

Regardless of what happens with Brexit, Americans must continue to expose the fraud that is the UN’s Paris Agreement. With aconcerted educational campaign, the extremist plot to empower the UN and regional governments over every aspect of life can and will be crushed.

COP21 Draft Leaves Out Indigenous Rights | Al Jazeera America

Indigenous leaders say omission is attempt by polluters to avoid blame for human rights abuses linked to climate change

The latest draft of the Paris climate agreement leaves out all references mandating protection of human rights — including the rights of indigenous peoples, native representatives attending COP21 said Friday.

Indigenous representatives said the omission is an attempt by wealthy industrialized nations to avoid accountability for their role in causing climate change, and an effort to establish carbon-trading programs instead of simply cutting their own emissions.

“The new draft … omits mention of human rights, including the rights of indigenous peoples from any operative article,” Alberto Saldamando, legal counsel for the Indigenous Environment Network, told Al Jazeera from Paris.

The latest draft, released Thursday evening, does mention the protection of human and indigenous rights in the preamble, but all other references to those rights in actionable articles of the agreement have been removed.

“In other words, there’s no legally binding obligation to respect, observe our rights,” Saldamando said, after warning on Thursday that the agreement risked overlooking those rights.

Paris Deal Sets Path to Limit Warming to 1.5 C | Al Jazeera America

Accord sets ambitious long-term goal advocated by most vulnerable countries and sets down landmark blueprint for action

Climate negotiators in Paris have approved a historic agreement that would put the world on a pathway to keeping the global average temperature rise above pre-industrial levels “well below” 2 degrees Celsius while “pursuing efforts to limit temperature increase to 1.5 C.”

Nearly 200 nations took part in the COP21 talks in Paris, working for the past two weeks on a deal to mitigate the worst effects of global warming, a process of change which has already begun to impact some of the world’s most vulnerable communities through extreme weather, rising seas, and drought.

The final draft was presented Saturday by French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius before being subsequently approved Saturday afternoon by 195 nations in a suburb outside the French capital.

Before the agreement officially goes into effect, it must be ratified by at least 55 individual countries. It is the first agreement that asks all countries to collectively tackle the problem of global warming, a major shift in U.N. talks that previously included pledges only by rich, not poor, nations.

“200-Year Flood” Leaves Southern Norway Immersed by Heavy Flooding – YouTube

Published on Dec 9, 2015www.undergroundworldnews.comSevere Storm “Synne”, known as Desmond in UK and Ireland, battered southern Norway with heavy rainfalls and strong winds during the weekend of December 5 and 6, 2015.

Torrential downpours caused heavy flooding across the affected areas. Road and rail traffic was disrupted and numerous people were forced to evacuate their homes.The so-called “200-year flood” ravaged southern Norway wreaking havoc across the country on the weekend of December 5.

According to media reports, Bjerkreim Municipality in Rogaland was hit the hardest. Abundant water amounts flowing through Bjerkreim have left the town of Vikesa immersed in water.
