Out of the people who were killed in Mali, three were Chinese nationals, and six were Russian nationals. All nine worked for two large companies. Who doesn’t want them to trade and have infrastructure in Africa?
All of a sudden things are getting built in Africa by other countries even though the Clinton foundation have been receiving massive amounts of money to help Africa from Countries and individuals including Australia (over $10 million x2, Ausaid and Commonwealth of Australia), Saudi Arabia (over $10 million), The Coca-Cola company (over $5 million), Bill and Melinda Gates foundation (more than $25 mill in 3rd quarter 2015), and the Rockefeller Foundation (over $10 million). Remember this money goes to the Clinton Foundation and not to the countries where it is needed. Where has all this money gone and who gets the money? I don’t believe for a minute it’s what the Foundation says it is for.
According to the Washington Post the Clintons make a massive amount of money from speeches also. From January 2014 to May 2015 they made over $25 million talking shit to fools who listen... and pay.
Here is an excerpt of the story in regards to the Mali attacks which can be read in full here.
‘Aside from the obviously tragic fact that these men were murdered in cold blood, one must examine carefully who they were in order to get a full sense of the importance of their killings. Mr. Zhou was the General Manager of the China Railway Construction Corporation’s (CRCC) international group, Mr. Wang was the Deputy General Manager of CRCC’s international group, and Mr. Chang was General Manager of the CRCC’s West Africa division. The significance should become immediately apparent as these men were the principal liaisons between Beijing and the Malian government in the major railway investments that China has made in Mali. With railway construction being one of the key infrastructure and economic development programs in landlocked Mali, the deaths of these three Chinese nationals is clearly both a symbolic and very tangible attack on China’s partnership with Mali’.
‘Among the dead are also six Russians, all of whom are said to have been employees of the Russian commercial cargo airline Volga-Dnepr. While at first glance it may seem irrelevant that the Russian victims worked for an airline, it is in fact very telling as it indicates a similar motive to the killing of the Chinese nationals; specifically, Volga-Dnepr is, according to its Wikipedia page, “a world leader in the global market for the movement of oversize, unique and heavy air cargo…[It] serves governmental and commercial organizations, including leading global businesses in the oil and gas, energy, aerospace, agriculture and telecommunications industries as well as the humanitarian and emergency services sectors.” The company has transported everything from gigantic excavators to airplanes, helicopters, mini-factories, and power plants, not to mention heavy machines used in energy extraction’.
Russia has decided to add the Chinese Yuan into their central bank as a reserve currency. It seems they don’t need to wait for the IMF to decide at their next meeting whether to add it into the IMF SDR basket or not. It looks like the Yuan will be added to the IMF basket anyway according to a former head of China’s IMF division. The sanctions that the US has put on state owned assets in Russia have not worked to the US’ liking. Investors went to China and Asia which became lucrative for them.
According to the Brics Post China will invest $1 trillion overseas in the next 5 years. President Li has met with 16 European countries;
At a meeting with the leaders of 16 Central and Eastern European countries (CEE) in the Serbian capital of Belgrade in December, Chinese Premier Li has announced a new investment fund of $3 billion to facilitate financing in the cash-strapped countries.“China will make the loan more preferential and reduce the cost of financing,” Li told the leaders.
China will make the loan more preferential. That means that by not using the IMF there will be either none of this or less of this...... Pensioners in Greece protesting about pension cuts, raising the retirement age, and cuts to health care.
‘Before they will release €7.2bn in aid that Greece needs to pay public-sector salaries and pensions and repay €1.6bn in IMF loans, those lenders want further reforms to the pensions system, including penalties to put people off taking early retirement and more cuts to even the lowest pensions’.
So the IMF (those lenders) wants further reforms. Will China’s debtors face the same reforms that the IMF imposes on their debtors? The IMF loan funds to 188 countries at present. Perhaps this is why Australia is having reforms as well;
• Shifting towards more efficient and simple taxes. In particular: by preventing a large share of individual taxpayers from facing higher tax rates through unchecked bracket creep (which would affect those on lower and middle incomes most), reducing the corporate tax rate to international levels, and eliminating stamp duties and minor taxes. This would be paid for by broadening the base of the GST and possibly raising the rate—while at least fully compensating those on lower incomes—and relying more on a broad-based real-estate tax and excises.
Note they want to REDUCE the corporate tax rate, eliminate stamp duties and minor taxes which will be paid for by the GST hike. So corporations pay less and the workers get an income tax break in one hand and then pay for it through the GST with the other hand.
If the Yuan becomes the reserve currency of the world, will they fix the problem of colluding banks? At least China put their corrupt bankers in jail like Iceland has done. Wall Street bankers will get a fine at most. Do the fines that are paid out go to the US government who then invests it with Wall Street bankers???? More on that can be read here.
It looks like Russia has some interesting technology that they rarely use as to not give it away. They have used it on an Israeli jet and jammed their un-jammable radar. They are now sending even more weapons and technology to Syria after the jet downing incident. The article written by George Abert formerly of US Air Force Intelligence can be read here.
This article by Alexander Mercouris suggests that Turkey’s Allies in NATO are not all that chuffed with Erdogan shooting down a Russian jet. Read his article here.
Here is some more on Turkey’s President Erdogan raiding media offices and arresting press who exposed the truth on Turkey’s arms supplies into Syria. They are now considered terrorists for bringing out the truth. More here and here.
Well it looks like Turkey is going to get their NO-FLY zone after all. This will keep the illegal sale of Syria’s stolen oil to Turkey flowing. The President of Turkey has had a telephone conversation with President Obama after the downing of the Russian jet where Obama has said, "The leaders agreed on the importance of de-escalating the situation and pursuing arrangements to ensure that such incidents do not happen again". The arrangements they pursue will be a NO-FLY zone to protect their interests.
A bit about Turkey’s President wanting to put 2 children aged 12 and 13 in jail for ripping down a poster of him can be read here. Attacking the PKK who are attacking ISIS here and wanting to put journalists in jail here.
Something’s amiss with Turkey stating in their letter to the UN directly after the incident that the jet was in their air space for 17 seconds over 1.15 miles. That means the jet was flying at stall speed of 243mph/388kmh (1.15/17x60x60). The SU-24’s maximum speed at altitude is 1654kmh. The letter also states they did not know the nationality of the fighter jets. Does this mean they shoot down any jet that comes near their air space? Why not make radio contact and fly alongside the jets to escort them away from the border as is the case every other time?
The Greek people are also not happy with Turkey and double standards as Turkish jets encroached their air space 2,244 times in 2014 alone. Then there is the fact that the Russians are the only ones obeying international law in Syria by being asked by the legitimate government of Syria to attack ISIS.
One pilot was killed by moderate rebels as he parachuted to the ground and the other pilot was rescued by the Syrian army. The rescued pilot also says that they were given no warning before being shot in the tail and downed.
The stories on mainstream media are amazing with the propaganda that goes on. This from Paul Craig Roberts’ article;
‘Do not expect any truth from any Western government or from any Western media. Governments and media know that the Western populations are uneducated, unaware, and can be relied upon to accept any preposterous story’.
‘NPR this morning confirmed that the media is a government propaganda organ. The Diane Rehm show on NPR presented us with a group of talking heads. Only one was informed, a professor at the Middle East Institute of the London School of Economics. The rest of the “experts” were the typical dumbshit Americans. They repeated all of the lies. “Russia is attacking everyone except ISIS.” How can there be anyone but ISIS to attack when the US general overseeing the area recently told Congress that “only 5” of our trained “rebels” remained? Yet the myth of “moderate rebels” is kept alive by these liars’.
My friend in Melbourne sent me a text message yesterday, it read...
‘On talkback down here most callers are bashing Russia along with the shock jock. This guy comes on and says just this. Russia is the good guy in this and I will tell you why. He gets cut off by the shock jock who says yes the Middle East is a complicated situation. The guy didn’t get a chance to say anything. Had another guy saying the pilots got killed as they parachuted. Shock jock said there’s no proof of that’. My friend then e-mailed them some links.
