All of this anti-Russian warmongering that the West needs desperately to create a war to hide the total collapse of our Marxist-based Socialist Economy where politicians only know how to run by promising free programs for everything.
Blowing up the gas pipeline from Russia to Germany to economically undermine Russia has undermined the German economy as well – the heart of Europe. Pollution levels in the country have indeed at times reached those of the worst polluting countries.
The energy shortages that have been deliberately created have resulted in surging power prices. Germany has been compelled to turn to cut down trees for wood and to boost coal use. All of this has taken place while they are supposed to be committed to fighting climate change and the Greens object to any nuclear power.
To keep the factories operating and just the lights on, Germany is now burning coal at the fastest pace in at least six years. Europe’s largest economy is in serious danger of an economic crisis despite the EU’s drive to phase out all fossil fuel.
Many have asked why our computer has been so bearish on the Euro. Just look at German Real Estate. The high was in 1999 in both nominal and real terms. Then look at 2007. That was the real estate boom in the USA with the Mortage-Backed disaster. It never exceeded 1999 high. Now, look at the 2021 high. Once again, we see a lower high. Here we are 23 years from the 1999 high and still making corrections. Add to all of this the deliberate energy crisis and the rising costs just to stay warm are very serious.
Germany is the heart of the EU. Without a solid economic performance from Germany, the Euro is doomed.
What is absolutely astonishing, is that this entire global warming propaganda that they then changed it to climate change because it was not just getting warmer – but colder. The entire premise is that the climate is changing all because of the Industrial Revolution and they REFUSE to address the fact that there are natural cycles to weather since the Earth was born.
I had to go to New Jersey for the Holiday. OMG – it was 10 degrees. It reminded me why I moved to Florida to get closer to real Global Warming. There us a cycle to absolutely everything. Only a complete idiot would argue against that.
During the 1970s, scientists were all predicting a new ice age. That was the popular view. Then there was a totally theoretical proposition laid out in the book Under a Green Sky that has become the bible for the total destruction of our modern society and just maybe they know that and are looking to deprive energy to reduce the population.
If we take the graph from the paleontologist Peter D. Ward’s book, “Under a Green Sky” published in 2007, this is what has inspired this whole climate debate and there is no evidence that it was CO2 that created an extinction of hundreds of millions of years ago. This has been a theoretical model that appears to be as reliable as the one funded by Bill Gates to justify locking down the entire world economy for a man-made virus – COVID19.
I find it really hypocritical that they want to imprison Trump, but not people pushing to reduce the world population and mandating a vaccine that FAILED to prevent the virus and more people who died of COVID who were vaccinated than not.
When the head of Pfizer seems to be way too close to heads of state and he has ABSOLUTE IMMUNITY that not even the International Criminal Court wants to charge Putin but not Pfizer, is just another example of the political cesspool we live in today.
The rise and fall of civilizations have been tied to climate. They ignore history and refuse to comprehend that there are simply cycles to everything. When Rome was the dominant power, there was pollution and CO2 which was created by burning wood. The first clean air act was put into law in 535 AD. These people act like we will all become extinct unless we reduce CO2 to zero. They have no science to back them up, just a book that put the theory about CO2 creating one of the extinctions without any evidence — just an assumption.
There is ABSOLUTELY no statistical evidence whatsoever that there has been any Global Warming. Here are the monthly maximum temperatures for New York City since 1869.
Here is the Computer cyclical forecast for 12 years. This year 2022 was a Double Directional Change and it was on target. The big targets for the climate crisis will be 2025 followed by 2029 – and it will not be warming.
The real question remains unanswered. Are these people claiming Climate Change to deliberately reduce the population?
COMMENT: Mr. Armstrong; I know you are very familiar with Ukraine. A friend of mine believes he met you in Kiev back in 2013. You and Henry Kissinger are the lone voices who have told the truth and how the West cares nothing about the people in the Donbas. When you attack a people’s religion, language, and culture, there is never any hope for peace. Zelensky and the West are trying to destroy us the same as the Romans attacking Jerusalem.
Thank you for telling our plight.
REPLY: You bring up an interesting analogy. Ukraine is being used as a pawn in this entire scheme to create World War III to justify defaulting on all debt – i.e. Schwab’s You’ll Own Nothing & Be Happy. You certainly have brought up a very good scenario.
The Great Jewish Revolt began during the reign of Nero (54-68AD) which was the first major rebellion of the Jewish people against the Roman occupation of Judea. It lasted from 66 – 70 AD and resulted in probably hundreds of thousands of lost lives and the ultimate destruction of their Temple. Most of our knowledge of the conflict comes from Roman-Jewish scholar Titus Flavius Josephus (37-100AD), who first fought in the revolt against the Romans, but was then kept by future Emperor Vespasian as a slave and interpreter. Josephus was later freed and granted Roman citizenship, writing several important histories on the Jews.
The fact is that the Romans had occupied Judea from 63 BC onward. While there were some tensions among the advocates of independence, the freedom of religion that had become the cornerstone of Rome was really its backbone. Yes, they conquered many lands. They allowed the people to retain their own religious beliefs and this the Christians would call paganism because there were many gods but none of them were viewed as a creator – more of superbeings who protected them.
Some complained about having to pay taxes to Rome. The story of the zealots trying to entrap Jesus into a conspiracy asking him where he stood on the question of taxation he resolved by asking whose portrait was on the coin. It was most likely Tiberius at the Time. He simply said give unto Caesar what is Caesar’s
The tension began to rise when Emperor Caligula (37-41AD) demanded in 39AD that his own statue be placed in every temple of the Empire. Caligula was rather mad and many say he saw himself as a god. Indeed, Zelensky has outlawed your religion as part of the Moscow Russian Orthodox Church demanding you now obey his replacement of a Kyiv Patriarch. The Romans did the same insofar as they appointed the High Priest of the Jewish religion.
Though the Zealots were always rebellious, Jewish tensions rose sharply when Nero plundered the Jewish Temple of its treasury in 66 AD. This followed the Great Fire of Rome and Nero was short of cash and he was the first to begin debasing the coinage. Like Henry VIII who also was broke raided the Catholic Church, Nero did the same to the Jews. He seized large amounts of silver from the Temple. The story of how the Jews also wanted their autonomy like the Donbas from Ukraine, in both cases there was a rise in nationalism with the aim of freeing the Holy Land from the earthly powers of the Romans, and in the case of the Donbas, the oppression of Ukrainians to the blind eye of the West.
In addition to the Romans, the Jewish peasantry was also angry with the corruption in the Jewish priesthood class as they were pawns of the Romans. It was the Jewish priests who turned Jesus over to the Romans. They were indeed very corrupt not unlike the corruption that had plagued the high priest in Rome who Julius Caesar was forced to overthrow. At the end, when Nero died leaving no heir, the Roman Empire fell into civil war. Vespasian (69-79AD) was forced to crush the Jews out of fear that if he did not, other provinces might rise up and demand freedom as well.
It is an interesting comparison as Kyiv has sought to oppress the Donbas and any student of history knows the hatred of Ukrainians v Russians. Why should the Donbas remain a second-class group of people oppressed by Ukrainians? The West only cares about destroying Russia and you are the pawn in the middle.
While the NY Times was still supporting Bankman-Fried, if the truth is ever really allowed to surface, you will find that FTX was I believe funneling kickbacks to the Democrats from the billions they handed Zelensky. Ukraine pleads for money and I have warned DO NOT SEND ANY FUNDS TO UKRAINE. If you want to help the people, donate to Red Cross – not the Ukrainian government. It is the most corrupt government at least in Europe if not the world. They keep putting out total BS to keep the money flowing. Why was Ukraine pouring money into FTX rather than taking care of its own people?
I was asked by a reporter from the NY Post did I think Republic National Bank was laundering money through my accounts with all the errors, AS THEY WERE DOING IN MADOFF! I told them I had no idea. The error would be backed out the next day and I did not see where it came from and if it went back to the same account or anyone. They do this ALL THE TIME! Madoff simply pled guilty and that prevents a trial so you will never know the truth. I believe he did so to protect his family. The banks claimed they had no idea! That was simply a lie. What about the regs – know your client? They do not apply when the banks are laundering money for someone in power.
We are the good people who base their values on evidence and appreciate civil discourse. Challenges are a good thing; they strengthen us and forge our identities. They free us from complacency and limited thinking. They free us from living life on autopilot. When challenged, live in grace; no fear, no retreat, no surrender. You are not alone, and we SO got this!
Some of the biggest players have gathered in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, for the annual Future Investment Initiative (FII). The conference is often referred to as “Davos in the Desert,” as they are competing with the World Economic Forum to be the largest economic conference of the year. Washington’s relationship with Saudi Arabia is at a standstill, but that is not preventing Wall Street’s chief names from attending.
“American companies will make their own decisions about their presence and where to invest, taking into account a range of factors including legal constraints, the business environment, and reputational concerns that can arise from public policy choices made by host countries,” said Karine Jean-Pierre, the White House press secretary.
Former Treasury Secretary Mnuchin and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, who both run private funds backed by the Saudis, were in attendance. JPMorgan’s Jamie Dimon and Goldman’s David Solomon spoke at the event along with Blackstone’s Stephen Schwarzman and investor Ray Dalio. FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried also spoke at the event. No one associated with the Biden Administration was in attendance as Washington is re-evaluating its relationship with Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia’s economy is rapidly growing. The event is Prince Mohammed’s opportunity to show that the kingdom is ready to be seen as a financial powerhouse beyond its energy sector. The private sector is making it known that they are willing to invest in Saudi Arabia despite Washington’s reluctance.
