France & Germany Merger: Will the New Treaty of Aachen Make the EU Superstate Dream Come True?

  • France & Germany Merger: Will the New Treaty of Aachen Make the EU Superstate Dream Come True?
    by DAVID SCOTT,  https://www.ukcolumn.org/
    The great 20th Century political philosopher, Marvin Gaye, once said “To make a dream come true; It just takes two”. Will Merkel and Marcon’s forthcoming Treaty of Aachen be a dream come true for those who would see a single European super-state? With the German Federal Government acknowledging that the Treaty includes the “design of the European Defence Union”, and signs of much more besides, we focus on the 22 January signing of the new Aachen Treaty.

    Symbolism
    Firstly, symbolism matters. In the EU, with its parliament modelled on the Tower of Babel, it matters a lot. So we start with a brief overview of the time and location selected for this treaty signing.

    As as for the location, it has yet deeper meaning. Aachen was the city where no fewer than thirty one Holy Roman Emperorswere crowned. Called by its French name, Aix-la-Chapelle, it was the capital of Charlemagne, who is often called the “Father of Europe”. It was also the place where he died in the year 814.

    Furthermore, it has been the place of signing for key international treaties before. The Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle was a multi-national agreement involving principally Great Britain and France. It was signed in 1748 and brought an end to the War of the Austrian Succession. It settled none of the deeper issues and did not bring lasting peace.

    More positive and perhaps more relevant is the “Aachen Compromise” of  1818, which regulated Great Power politics in Europe for the following 32 years, up until the Crimean War ended the peace. A notable feature of the latter was the presence of secret protocols. Is this historical practice is about to be revived, perhaps?.

    In summary, the leaders of the two key nations in continental Europe are meeting on a date symbolic of the post-war EU enterprise and at a location symbolic of past European Empire creation. This is significant. It could herald a sudden acceleration in the integration of the continent of Europe. With that in mind we next turn to the statements made concerning the content of the present day Aachen treaty.

    So we are all clear – this treaty will accelerate the Planning of the EU Military Union. It has been formally confirmed by the German Federal Government and nobody can say we did not know. Intriguingly, they also reveal the end of national borders as functionally significant administrative boundaries:

    Forward-looking solutions for integration in Europe:
    To improve the everyday life of citizens in border regions, concrete and practical solutions are to be made available. Local actors will be given the opportunity to establish cross-border projects such as nurseries, education facilities, emergency and health services, and industrial estates.

    And what has the excellent work of David Ellis told us about EU Military Unification? It starts with industrial capacity and equipment procurement. Defense News has revealed that weapons, for export at least, form part of the agreement:

    COLOGNE, Germany — The German Cabinet has approved a new, high-level pact with France that calls for a common approach to weapons exports in all joint programs.

    The objective is included in the so-called Aachener Vertrag, slated to be signed by French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in the German city of Aachen on Jan. 22.

    The intension is that both the French and German Parliaments will ratify the treaty the same day that it is signed. In the coronation hall, in the City of Charlemagne, in just six days’ time— Europe will change.

Trump Wants Out of NATO: A Gift to Russia, Or a Gift to Germany?

  • Trump Wants Out of NATO: A Gift to Russia, Or a Gift to Germany?
    by Darius Shahtahmasebi, https://www.rt.com/
    A report has emerged which claims the US president has been incessantly attempting to pull the US out of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Western media has portrayed this idea as a gift to Russia, and not much else.

    Just this week, the New York Times released an explosive report which alleged that US President Donald Trump had “suggested a move tantamount to destroying NATO: the withdrawal of the United States.” Relying on the advice of anonymous senior administration officials, Trump reportedly said he wanted to withdraw from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization throughout the past year.

    As the Times notes, Trump sees little value in NATO and views it as a drain on the United States. So, if true, in the president’s estimate, he wants his country out of the organization. What’s the big deal?

    Well, according to the Times, “[t]here are few things that President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia desires more than the weakening of NATO.” In an effort to make what is essentially a one-paragraph story into a full-length feature, the Times also interviewed Michèle A. Flournoy, under-secretary of defence under Barack Obama, who explained that a US withdrawal from NATO “would be the wildest success that Vladimir Putin could dream of.”

    Flournoy was joined by retired Admiral James G. Stavridis, the former supreme allied commander of NATO, who eloquently noted that merely discussing the idea of leaving NATO – “let alone doing so – would be the gift of the century for Putin.”

    But that’s not all. Vox’s Emily Stewart was kind enough to express that “Trump has reportedly discussed withdrawing from NATO. That would be great for Russia.” Not just great for Russia, but as MSNBC has indulged, it is in fact a “dream of Putin.” According to some of those lovely fellows in the Democrat camp, the removal of the US from NATO would be grounds for impeachment.

    This is what I love most about this conundrum. It is supposedly grounds for impeachment if a sitting US president wants to withdraw his nation from a military alliance. It is NOT grounds for impeachment, however, for a sitting US president to head this organization while it bombs 70 percent of Libya’s water supply – an apparently deliberate war crime. It is not grounds for impeachment (or even imprisonment) for a US president to provide the full resources of his country’s military as the “backbone” of almost every (if not every) NATO offensive in the onslaught of a country which, up until this bombardment, had the highest standard of living on the entire African continent.

    No – the big crime in all of this is a president who has decided that his openly flaunted doctrine of “America first” – an apparent campaign promise – involves the US not taking part in international treaty organizations that he sees little value in.

Brokerage Accounts Bail In, Cashless, Gold Backed Yuan — Q&A with Lynette Zang and Eric Griffin

  • ITM Trading Streamed live on Jan 15, 2019
    Link to the Slides and Sources: https://www.itmtrading.com/blog/broke…
    Question 1. Gregory R: Will the bail-in rules apply to brokerage firms like Charles Schwab and Ameritrade?
    Question 2. Marc A: Do you think China will introduce a gold backed yuan? And what will that mean for the price of gold, the dollar and capital flows?
    Question 3. Frank B: In regard to going cashless, would gold/silver still be liquid in such a situation? Or would it be easier to “outlaw” gold and silver?
    Question 4. Sandra G: If someone tells you they are out of the markets because they have sold all their stocks and bonds and have put all their cash into T-Bills in a brokerage account – what do you say to them?
    Question 5. Dennis J: what do the world central banks purchase their gold with? Currency? Seems like a conflict of interest if they have control of their currency supply. Also does anyone even know how much currency is actually in circulation because most currency is digital.

Global Economy Flashes Red As China Shipping Rates Collapse

  • Global Economy Flashes Red As China Shipping Rates Collapse
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    dramatic and sudden slowdown in the rate at which numerous commodities are being shipped to China suggests slowing demand for raw materials in the world’s second-largest economy, and signals a wider economic slowdown globally looms.

    “Recent shipping data has turned negative with charter rates across all sectors notably weaker compared to late November levels,” Morgan Stanley analysts Fotis Giannakoulis, Qianlei Fan, and Max Yaras wrote.

    “While such moves are common, the synchronized decline may be a warning for Chinese commodity demand.”

    Morgan Stanley continues:

    During the last six weeks almost all shipping sectors have seen charter rates move lower, raising concerns about the health of underlying demand.

    * The Baltic Dry Index is down 17% since mid-December (Exhibit 6) with all vessel types earning lower rates compared to a year ago 
    despite the sharp drop in dry bulk supply growth.

Peak Stupidity: Deep State and Mainstream Media Push ‘Trump is a Spy’ Nonsense

  • The Duran Published on Jan 16, 2019
    The Duran – News in Review – Episode 167. The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss the sheer stupidity of the entire ‘Trump is a Russian spy’ narrative being plastered all over the mainstream media, as neo-liberal shills and neocon war hawks continue to damage the Office of the United States President by insisting on pushing a made up story that a five year old child who waits for Santa Claus to bring Christmas gifts would have a hard time believing. Meanwhile the real crime and real treason derived from a Comey-Clapper-Brennan Deep State plot to remove a democratically elected Trump from power, is being blacked out from the mainstream, neo-liberal news cycle.

Ron Paul Liberty Report: The Obama/New York Times Plot To Overthrow Trump

  • RonPaulLibertyReport Streamed live on Jan 15, 2019
    Another “blockbuster” report on Trump’s “ties” to Russia has fizzled into nothingness, as the New York Times’ piece over the weekend on an FBI counterintelligence investigation opened against the president was riddled with holes and absurdities. What came through loud and clear, however, was that Obama appointees and loyalists in the FBI and elsewhere in the deep state were determined to do everything in their power to overthrow a legally elected US president.
