SETBACK FOR NEOLIBERALISM: TRUMP DUMPS TPP, WILL RENEGOTIATE NAFTA

President Donald Trump reportedly signed executive orders that will remove the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and start a renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). It increases the possibility that the Trump administration will deliver a fatal blow to neoliberal globalization. That such actions came from a Republican president is remarkable given the party’s recent history of support for neoliberalism, though the popularity of “free trade” has considerably diminished among the electorate. Both major party candidates in the 2016 cycle-former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Trump-campaigned in opposition to TPP.

Trump’s Inaugural Address Was Like No Other in History

He is rich enough, and independent enough, and cantankerous enough that he may not get stuck in the swamps of political compromise.

Donald Trump’s inaugural address is going to go down in history as one of the great ones.I say this as a man with 59 years of public speaking experience and a Ph.D. in American history.

Trump’s speech was different from any previous inaugural address. He spoke directly to his political base. He did not try to pull the country together in some kind of vague, pie-in-the-sky, common-ground political rhetoric. He threw down the gauntlet from the very beginning. Standing in front of the Capitol building, surrounded by former Presidents and politicians, he said that everything they had done in the past has been a way to extract power from the American people and to feather their own nests. This, of course, is exactly what they have done. Nobody had ever said this before in an inaugural address.

German Press: "That Was No Presidential Speech; That Was A Declaration Of War"

Following yesterday's openly confrontational, deliberately protectionist presidential address by president Trump, which in various circles has been dubbed the "American carnage" speech for obvious reasons, some of Obama's closest foreign friends are scrambling to find a role in a world that has drastically changed in less than 24 hours. One of them is the foreign leader whom Obama spoke to last before vacating the White House, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who vowed on Saturday to seek compromises on issues like trade and military spending with Trump, adding she would work on preserving the important relationship between Europe and the United States.

"He made his convictions clear in his inauguration speech," Merkel said in remarks broadcast live, a day after Trump vowed to put 'America first'.

Trump Fires Up Europe's Anti-Establishment Movement

"The genie will not go back into the bottle again, whether you like it or not." — Geert Wilders, MP and head of the Party for Freedom, the Netherlands.

A growing number of Europeans are rebelling against decades of government-imposed multiculturalism, politically correct speech codes and mass migration from the Muslim world.

Europe's establishment parties, far from addressing the concerns of ordinary voters, have tried to silence dissent by branding naysayers as xenophobes, Islamophobes and neo-Nazis.

"In many respects, France and Germany are proving they do not understand the meaning of Brexit. They are reflexively, almost religiously, following exactly the path that has provoked the EU's current existential crisis." — Ambassador John R. Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

'You CAN'T leave!' EU threatens France and Italy with MAMMOTH bill if they quit the euro

BRUSSELS has threatened Italy with an almost certainly unpayable bill if the country's citizens take the democratic decision to quit the troubled euro.

EU chiefs said countries looking to axe the unpopular single currency will have to pay back all their debts in one go before they can leave, making such a move massively unaffordable.

The pronouncement comes after prominent politicians in a number of member states including Italy, France, Greece and the Netherlands have all made noises about ditching the euro.

Sidestepping the Military Leviathan: Make Money, Not War

Is Washington really going to start a trade war with China, or is it just huffing and puffing for position? I don’t know. Mr. Trump has inexplicably failed to brief me. A point worth bearing in mind:

The United States cannot compete commercially with a developed Asia, or China.

America has nowhere to go. It is a fully developed economy that cannot grow rapidly if it grows at all. America is also a country of only medium size with a white and Asian population of a bit more than two hundred million who do all the brain work. It has a decaying system of education, declining living standards, and an economy crippled by huge military expenditures.

By contrast China has a billion Han Chinese, intelligent government, a great deal of room to grow and high rates of doing so. The combined land mass, population, and economic potential of Asia are staggering. In differing degrees, Asian nations are growing.

A New Era of Mass Surveillance is Emerging Across Europe

The world was a different place when, in October 2015, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) struck down the “Safe Harbour” data-sharing agreement that allowed the transfer of European citizens’ data to the US. The Court’s decision concluded that the indiscriminate nature of the surveillance programs carried out by U.S. intelligence agencies, exposed two years earlier by NSA-contractor-turned-whistleblower Edward Snowden, had made it impossible to ensure that the personal data of E.U. citizens would be adequately protected when shared with American companies. The ruling thus served to further solidify the long-standing conventional wisdom that Continental Europe is better at protecting privacy than America.

Pepe Escobar: Here's How The Trump Presidency Will Play Out

The Trump era starts now – with geopolitics and geoeconomics set for a series of imminent, unpredictable cliffhangers. I have argued that Trump’s foreign policy guru Henry Kissinger’s strategy to deal with the formidable Eurasia integration trio – Russia, China and Iran – is a remixed Divide and Rule; seduce Russia away from its strategic partnership with China, while keep harassing the weakest link, Iran. In fact that’s how it’s already playing out – as in the outbursts of selected members of Trump’s cabinet during their US Senate hearings. Factions of US Think Tankland, referring to Nixon’s China policy, which was designed by Kissinger, are also excited with the possibilities of containment regarding at least one of those powers “potentially arrayed against America”.

Trump’s Inaugural Speech – Promises, Hopes and Opportunities

Could 21st century capitalism dump imperialism? Maybe.
Just hours ago Donald Trump was finally sworn in as the President of the United States. Considering all the threats hanging over this event, this is good news because at least for the time being, the Neocons have lost their control over the Executive Branch and Trump is now finally in a position to take action.

The other good news is Trump’s inauguration speech which included this historical promise “We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example for everyone to follow”. Could that really mean that the USA has given up its role of World Hegemon? The mere fact of asking the question is already an immensely positive development as nobody would have asked it had Hillary Clinton been elected.

Trump’s Declaration of War – Paul Craig Roberts

If truth can be said, President Trump has declared a war far more dangerous to himself than if he had declared war against Russia or China.

Trump made it abundantly clear that Americans’ enemies are right here at home: globalists, neoliberal economists, neoconservatives and other unilateralists accustomed to imposing the US on the world and involving us in endless and expensive wars, politicians who serve the Ruling Establishment rather than the American people, indeed, the entire canopy of private interests that have run America into the ground while getting rich in the process.

Insane lies: Dutch state television claims half a million people marched in Washington today

With the title 'nobody expected that spectacle', the Dutch state journal NOS (paid by taxes) claims that half a million people marched to Capitol Hill today, more people than attended Trump's inauguration yesterday. Some whorenalist even compares it to the unexpected turnout at Woodstock. But judging from those pictures, the crowd was between 15000 and 20000 strong, and that's being very generous. The BS story is going viral in Belgium and the Netherlands.

Washington's trans-atlantic empire suffered a blow this week when Moldova's newly elected president, Igor Dodon, announced his country's re-alignment toward Russia in a joint press conference held with Vladimir Putin in Moscow.

What a sad day this must be for the neocons, the transatlanticists, the globalists, the Victoria Nulands and George Soroses of the world. While they can't have spent nearly as much money in Moldova as they did brainwashing and overthrowing Ukraine ($5 billion according to Vicky), they have surely invested a lot in attempting to pull Moldova into Washington's Euro-Atlantic sphere.

SWEDEN CRUMBLING: Demands for military intervention as thugs turn Malmo into 'no-go zone'

Painting a blake picture of Sweden’s third largest city, the opposition politician blasted Malmo has lost enough of its citizens to shootouts, grenade attacks and murders.

Speaking to Expressen, Mr Olsson also said there was a great lack of police officers in Sweden, which means officers could benefit from the armed forces’ resources.

He said: “There is a great lack of police officers in Sweden and Malmö. For this reason, it is perhaps time to let the military and police to stand together to reestablish order in the country.

Ulfkotte dead: Europe’s Courageous Journalism Voice Has Passed Away

On January 13, Udo Ulfkotte died, reportedly of a heart attack.
Ulfkotte had been an editor at the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitzung. He published a courageous book in which he said that the CIA had a hand on every significient journalist in Europe, which gave Washington control over European opinion and reduced knowledge of and opposition to Washington’s control over European heads of state. Essentially, there are no European governments independent of Washington.

Courage, once plentiful in Europe, is today hard to find. Charles de Gaulle was the last head of a major European state that maintained independence from Washington. Today we find independence in Marine Le Pen and perhaps in the president of Hungary. But for the most part West and East European heads of state are Washington’s vassals committed to Washington’s wars.

Poland welcomes thousands of US troops in NATO show of force

Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo welcomed US troops to her country at a formal ceremony Saturday, saying it was a "great day" that would help ensure Poland's security.

Some 4,000 US soldiers have been deployed as part of troop rotations to Europe that the Pentagon has said are intended to bolster ties with NATO allies and send a clear message to Russia.
Russia has criticized the continuous deployments as a threat to Russian security.
"It's a great day today when we can welcome, here in Zagan, American soldiers who represent the best, the greatest army in the world," Szydlo said at the ceremony in the snowy western town of Zagan.

Speaking after the Polish leader, Paul Jones, the US ambassador to Poland, said the troops arriving in Poland were "America's most capable force," embodying an "iron-clad commitment" to defend NATO allies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Take a good look at the image at the top of this article. And yes, I can see that there's snow on the ground, which isn't that unusual for Poland in the wintertime.

But look at the puny crowd of onlookers, center-left. I have to wonder if they were "forcefully invited", because they were families of Polish military members, or if it was a "rent a crowd" for hire.

The Polish government may want these troops here; the Polish military may want these troops here; but I really have to wonder about the Polish people wanting these troops here.

They have a first-hand history of wars being fought on their soil, and I strongly doubt that they want to see another war on Polish soil, courtesy of a US/NATO false flag against Russia.

Anonymous – Message to the Citizens of the World VII 1/14/17 (Please Share)

Largely in response to the number of people rising up from various countries around the world all expressing their dissatisfaction with highly centralized forms of big government, and the growing global police state, for slightly over a year the group Anonymous has been releasing a series of messages to the citizens of the world.

On January 14th, 2017, they have just released their newest message. It begins as follows:

-- "When criminals have the power of government on the their side, there is no stopping them…
-- History shows that the only way of altering these familiar reigns of terror is stealing the government back from them by any means necessary…

-- No matter how much blood is spilled it will be far less than simply letting the tyrants have their way…

-- By rousing the public to act…"

That is just the beginning of what Anonymous has to say in their latest message.

We could dismiss Trump’s admission as throwing a bone to the CIA so they can feel vindicated and get off his back, and the statements by Tillerson and Mattis could be dismissed as what has to be said in order to be confirmed.

US Intel Agencies Try to Strong-Arm Trump Into War with Russia

The big shots who run the country are trying to strong-arm ‘the Donald’ into carrying their water so the depredations can continue...

Powerful elites are using the credibility of the US Intelligence agencies to demonize Russia and prepare the country for war.

Last week’s 25-page report, that was released by the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, illustrates to what extent intelligence is being “fixed around the policy”.

The Intelligence Community has been coerced into compromising its credibility to incite fear of Russia and to advance the geopolitical ambitions of deep state powerbrokers.

Risks and Opportunities for 2017

Just a few days into 2017 and we can already say with a great degree of confidence that 2017 will be a historical year. Furthermore, I submit that 2017 will be the “Year of Trump” because one of roughly three things will happen: either Trump will fully deliver on his threats and promises, or Trump deliver on some, but far from all, his threats and promises or, finally, Trump will be neutralized by the Neocon-run Congress, media, intelligence community. He might even be impeached or murdered.

Of course, there is an infinity of sub-possibilities here, but for the purpose of this discussion I will call the first option “Trump heavy”, the second one “Trump light” and the third one “Trump down”.

Donald Trump may be a historic figure, but that does not mean he is easy to understand or anticipate. One thing is for sure – he has a unique style and form of communication.

LAWLESS SWEDEN: Lone migrant youths turn shopping centre into 'NO-GO ZONE', officials say

MIGRANT youth gangs have turned Sweden’s largest shopping centre into a “no-go zone” as they intimidate police, harass girls and deal drugs openly.

Gothenburg police have been forced implement extraordinary measures to cope with the increased number of incidents, which have left shoppers and business owners terrified of their workplace.

Nordstan is Sweden’s largest shopping centre in terms of sales and number of visitors, however once the shops close at 8pm, criminal youth gangs take over despite officers turning out in force.

GEORGE SOROS: THE MAN BEHIND THE MAYHEM

George Soros states that his overriding cause in everything he supports philanthropically is what he calls the creation of “open societies,” and he states that the one principle he believes can save humanity is pluralism. Without that, he believes we will destroy each other. He witnessed such destruction as a boy in Hungary under Hitler’s occupation where clearly pluralistic cultures were not embraced, and he states those years were formative to his character, as I imagine they would be.

Maybe that is what drives Soros to put enormous amounts of money into squeezing people together through immigration, even though he sees that it is creating stress fractures in his beloved European Union. Given the horrors that he witnessed as a child, his need to force pluralistic societies into being could be pathologically driven.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I, for one, believe that all immigrants from Africa and the Middle East should only be allowed to live on Soros-owned and leased properties, so that he, too can be "culturally enriched".

DBRS Downgrades Italy, Stripping It Of Its Last "A Rating" And Raising ECB Collateral Haircuts

Update: sure enough, the Italian reaction didn't take long and as Bloomberg cited an Italian Treasury official, the decision won't impact the interest in Italian public debt. The "DBRS decision to downgrade Italy rating to BBB High from A Low could have impact on short-term debt, but that will be gauged only in coming months" and that the "rating change will not weigh significantly on cost of interests on Italy’s public debt."

When previewing the key events of the week, we noted that today Canadian DBRS rating agency is scheduled to review Italy's credit rating after putting its credit worthiness on negative watch on 5 August. On 5 December, DBRS issued a press release declaring that they would wait for the impact of the Italian referendum result on the continuation of the reform push before making the final decision.

After Tanks the Boots: Thousands of US Troops Touch Ground in Europe on Way to Russian Frontier

A US armored brigade (3rd Armored Brigade, 4th Infantry Division) is on the move to Russia's Baltic border. After its equipment begun arriving in Europe last week so now have its soldiers.

The move is so big it will require 37 trains and over one thousand rail cars to transport from Germany to Poland.

A US armored brigade fields over 400 tracked and over 1300 wheeled vehicles including 80 62-ton Abrams tanks, 140 Bradley armored fighting vehicles and 400 humvees.

Thousands of US Troops, Tanks Advance Toward Russian Border

Having arrived in Germany a few days ago, a mass of over 3,000 US ground troops backed by a large column of American tanks are advancing eastward toward the Russian border today, heading across Poland as part of a major NATO operation called Atlantic Resolve.

Unlike a lot of more specific war-games simulating explicit wars on certain fronts, Atlantic Resolve was initially launched just to spite Russia over the civil war in Eastern Ukraine, and seems to be designed more or less to simply antagonize Russia militarily.

And it’s doing it’s job, in that event, as Russian officials expressed serious concern over the matter, saying they believe the advance of a large number of US troops heading toward Russia is a threat to national security. They also added that they don’t appreciate having a large number of troops massed on their European border by a nation that isn’t even European.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to NATO Secretary-General, Jens Stoltenberg; your efforts at attempting to "...lock President-Elect Trump into a policy of hostility toward Russia." is headed toward an epic fail.

There's only one week before Trump gets inaugurated, and after that point, he and his team will, hopefully, make the right decisions for the future of this country vis a vis Russia, and I can tell you, with very little fear of contradiction, that their Russian policy will NOT be war-centric, as is NATO's.

A NATO Aegis Ashore ballistic missile defense site is to be positioned in Poland in 2018. A direct and provocative threat to Russia’s security.

Not being reported by the main stream media…Poland has just sealed a deal to acquire 70 AGM-158B JASSM-ER (extended range) missiles from the United States, which boast an operational range of 1000+km and the capability of knocking out key stationary infrastructure sites located deep inside Russia’s territory.

The Neocon’s declaration of war against Trump

This is a political coup d’etat...an attempt at removing Donald Trump from the White House.

After several rather lame false starts, the Neocons have now taken a step which can only be called a declaration of war against Donald Trump.

It all began with CNN published an article entitled “Intel chiefs presented Trump with claims of Russian efforts to compromise him”

Within one short week we went from allegations of “Russian hacking” to “having a traitor sitting in the White House”

SOUTHFRONT ACCUSED OF SUBVERTING POLISH GOVERNMENT

At issue is the Internet page Southfront.org. It published an article suggesting that the dismissals of Polish generals are the effect of the negative atmosphere within Poland’s Ministry of National Defense which supposedly prevailed after Antoni Macierewicz took over ministry. The author of the text slandering the Polish army and the defense chief is a Polityka reporter, and the text was translated and commented on by J.Hawk [That’s me!!! I’m famous now.] known in the Internet from pro-Russian activity [I prefer to think of it as simply reporting the news the CIA doesn’t want people to know]. Southfront.org is a platform headed by Putin trolls (sic), spreading Russian propaganda (sic), clearly anti-Western materials (sic), where it is difficult to find any criticism of the Putin regime (sic).

Desperate Eurozone to borrow BILLIONS to fund Greece rescue amid fears of crash

THE eurozone's bailout fund is borrowing tens of billions so it can fund a rescue plan for Greece, amid fears the country's debt crisis could once again send shockwaves through the bloc.

The Luxembourg agency responsible for doling out rescue money - the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) - is turning to markets to raise the extra cash needed for the Greek debt relief programme.

The ESM is now issuing €57billion (£49.5bn) in long-term bonds - up 14 per cent from original plans - to cover the bail-out programme.

However, Athens remains at loggerheads with creditors over the long term measures of the deal for fresh cash and debt relief - and the stand-off could last for weeks, as the two sides refuse to back down over controversial austerity measures.

Last month, the ESM froze short-term debt relief for the country, after prime minister Alexis Tsipras announced a one-off Christmas bonus for low-income pensioners.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Austerity is always great for the banks, but lousy for the people it hits, like the Greek Pensioners.

And what happens if the ESM just cannot get the money, and the market is skittishly bearish on the concept?!?!?

Obama’s ‘Farewell To Arms’ As War Presidency Ends

Self-declared liberal Americans consider Bush to be a warmongering disaster, yet somehow they hail Obama as some kind of progressive «peace president».

Eight straight years of warmongering come to an end as US President Barack Obama bows out with his «farewell to the nation» speech this week, as fawning American media dubbed his valediction.

In reality, Obama’s outgoing address should have been billed as a «farewell to arms» made by arguably one of the most belligerent presidents to ever have occupied the White House.

Only in exceptionally delusional America could such a pernicious paradox be presented as something honorable and sentimental.

Two conflicting interpretations are suggested, says Cohen. Either Trump is about to become a potentially seditious American president. Or powerful US forces are trying to destroy his presidency before it begins, perhaps even prevent him from taking office.

US troops enter Poland, 1st deployment at Russia's doorstep

American soldiers rolled into Poland on Thursday, fulfilling a dream some Poles have had since the fall of communism in 1989 to have U.S. troops on their soil as a deterrent against Russia.

Some people waved and held up American flags as U.S. troops in tanks and other vehicles crossed into southwestern Poland from Germany and headed toward the town of Zagan, where they will be based. Poland's prime minister and defense minister will welcome them in an official ceremony Saturday.

"This is the fulfillment of a dream," said Michal Baranowski, director of the German Marshall Fund think tank in Warsaw. "And this is not just a symbolic presence but one with a real capability."

U.S. and other Western nations have carried out exercises on NATO's eastern flank in past years, but the new deployment — which includes some 3,500 U.S. troops — marks the first-ever continuous deployment to the region by a NATO ally.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh yes, i am SURE the Poles go to sleep at night dreaming of the return of US occupation forces!

Russia never annexed Crimea; it was the the US/IMF/NATO putsch which threw the duly elected President of Ukraine under the proverbial bus in 2014 which made the Crimeans "deeply nervous", because there was no representative government in Kiev after the western-centric thug* Poroshenko was "anointed" as President in a election more crooked than a dog's hind leg.

Italian Foreign Minister Angelino Alfano spoke on Tuesday in favor of getting back to the G8 format with the participation of Russia, ANSA news agency reports. "We must look towards Russia rejoining the G8 but we still don't know if it will be possible by May," the news agency quoted him as saying. However, speaking about Russia’s possible return to G8 "would be premature now, because you first have to start with an assessment of the enactment of the Minsk Accords," he added. Italy assumed the rotating presidency of G7 on January 1. Earlier reports said the G7 leaders planned to discuss the issue of retaining sanctions against Russia at their next summit, due in Italy in May.
