Plans for a drone program, for WLAN surveillance and cell phone hacking: Qatar has equipped itself with spy equipment. Even their own spies feared surveillance in the desert state. What does that mean for visitors to the World Cup?
Political talks in Washington and New York – Germany’s de-industrialization begins
In the USA, the state is now making massive industrial policy. In fact, there are also protectionist tendencies. In the end, it should not be the case that the U.S. is making an economic policy against us Europeans, although it actually wants to hit China. We should be self-confident in voicing our concerns. Germany is cutting itself off from Russia, we want to reduce China’s influence, our energy prices are high.
All of this will pose an enormous challenge to our industry. It’s not good if our biggest ally also aligns its economic policy against us.
Democracies vs Autocracies – America’s Last Stand?
America’s political agenda, especially foreign policy and the war in Ukraine in particular, largely determines German and European policies towards Russia, China and the rest of Eurasia. No secret is made of this either, but with every new sanction against Russia it is pointed out that everything was decided in consultation with the allies. Germany and other NATO countries have been ordered to self-impose trade and investment sanctions that will outlast today’s proxy war in Ukraine.
The reorientation of the member states of the European Union
It’s about much more than just the fact that the Russian army has positioned itself against the Ukrainian military. The Prussian General Carl von Clausewitz said: „War is the continuation of politics by other means“. Politically, this war is about the reasons for Russia’s „special operation“. The West was not ready to hold serious talks with the Kremlin about the origins and development of the conflict. Putin’s hand was rejected. The consequences for Europe and the USA will be dramatic. Russia will win this meta-political and earthly war. The West is slowly beginning to realize this reality.
Sensational speech by Putin at the Valdai meeting
History will know whom to annul. What can I say? History will certainly put everything in its place and know whom to annul, and these will certainly not be the greatest works of universally recognized geniuses of world culture, but those who for some reason have righted themselves to make world culture after theirs to use at will. Your self-esteem really knows no bounds. In a few years, no one will remember their names. But Dostoyevsky will live on, as will Tchaikovsky and Pushkin, much as they might wish the opposite.
Into your own flesh
Germany is running in the wrong direction. It’s no use increasing the speed and determination with which this happens. Our government is practicing the complete opposite of a win-win strategy in the Ukraine crisis. The losers are the German citizens who, in order to “annoy Putin”, will have to contend with the increased cost of living. The losers are probably the Ukrainians, whose war is dragging on with German help. The environment is also a loser, when even green politicians, in their stubbornness, still prefer coal and fracking gas to energy from the „evil empire“. At best, the winner is Russia itself, which has been swimming in money since it has been selling its gas to anyone other than the capricious Europeans. Although the victims of the war in Ukraine are regrettable, Putin is certainly not a moral luminary – but the Ukrainian leadership does not deserve the loyalty of the Germans to the Nibelungen. We must now reverse gear in the impasse and finally head for a negotiated solution that is suitable for reality.
Coup of the global fascists (2)
A gigantic power cartel is preparing to dismantle the world under the keyword „The Great Reset“ and to create a „New World Order“ from the rubble of the old order. The „Global Deep State“ is the driver of the „New World Order“. It is made up of Big Money, i.e. the rich and super-rich, oligarchs and plutocrats, as well as capital collectors such as BlackRock & Co., Big Corporations, including Big Data and Big Pharma, the military-industrial-security complex, the secret services, externally and internal secret armies, the PR/propaganda agencies and media conglomerates as well as „Deep & Corrupt Governments“.
Wheat production and export on a global scale
The world’s largest wheat producers are the USA, India, China and Russia. Depending on the region, wheat is used as animal feed or as a staple food, with animal feed predominating. Wheat accounts for approximately 24% of global grain production and covers 20% of the world’s calorie needs. Overall, more wheat is produced than is consumed. However, the regional differences in production volumes are very large. While the EU exports the most wheat, Russia exports the second largest amount of wheat. It was 31 million tons in 2019. Russia, as the second largest wheat exporter, is followed in descending order by Ukraine, Canada, the USA, Australia and Turkey. Global geographical disparities are the reason for this worldwide distribution of wheat production. The world’s most productive landscapes can be found in the black soils of Ukraine, in loess in Germany and in the steppes of the USA. Almost half of the world’s stockpiles of wheat belong to the People’s Republic of China.
Il y a 20 ans, il n’y avait pas de millionnaires en Afghanistan, du moins pas officiellement. Même aujourd’hui, aucun millionnaire afghan ne figure sur la liste des millionnaires. Mais cela devrait bientôt changer. En Afghanistan, les millionnaires remettent la poignée de porte. Le district de Sherpur est connu sous le nom de „Beverly Hills“ de Kaboul. Beaucoup ont probablement été construits grâce aux bénéfices du boom de l’opium, aux pots-de-vin et à l’argent de l’aide internationale.
Violence has become America’s calling card.
According to Devlin Barrett of the Washington Post, „The United States has seen the largest one-year increase in homicides since the country began keeping such records in the 20th century, according to crime data and expert testimony.“ We only have data for the first nine months of 2020, but according to the FBI, there was a 20.9 percent increase in homicides compared to the same period in 2019, a truly shocking increase. In 2020, Joe Biden was elected president of America through voter fraud. From that point on, violence has skyrocketed.
