And getting rid of it will be well mmm lets just say it took Spain only 800 years to recover and get rid of this pest. So judging by history and if we use the cancer analogy I fear it will be almost impossible."
Well here's some good news. Unlike the middle ages, the West has a ridiculously superior military capability compared to the islamic hordes of 2016.Read more
Erdogan is one of those type dictators that screams a lot and does anything he wants until he is stopped.
About the recent diplomatic row in the Netherlands: Turkish officials tried to enter and reach the Consulate after being warned not to come. Basically they were "persona non grata".
No sovereign country is obliged to let some official enter their territory, the rules for diplomatic immunity only apply for those diplomats already inside.Read more
Globalization was all well and good when it was about expanding economic opportunities, setting up factories and businesses with desperately needed jobs in places that had no other economic options to join the global marketplace.
The downside was yes, this cost some jobs at home, but this was somewhat mollified by understanding that the dollars per day those companies were paying the new workers was economically transforming in those areas.Read more
"I feel like I am attending a meeting of a religious sect here this morning. It’s as if the global revolution of 2016, Brexit, Trump, the Italian rejection of the referendum, has completely bypassed you.
You can’t face up to the fact that this bandwagon is going to roll across Europe in these elections in 2017. A lot of citizens now recognize this form of centralized government simply doesn’t work.
Opposition to "Globalism" as used in these sorts of debates is not about opposition to free trade, as the Brexiteers you referenced have repeatedly shown. Globalism is the idea that supranational considerations and organization are superior to local/national ones.
This often entails the loss of local/national sovereignty to organizations like the EU, NATO, WTO, UN, TPP, etc. which in their own ways limit the ability of local/national governments to legislate/act as they wish and, most importantly, reduce the ability of citizens to hold their governments to account.Read more
In 1991 we had BALANCED trade with Mexico - and for that matter, with Canada as well. Then came NAFTA and SUDDENLY we had a large trade deficits.
Let's look at trade deficits with THREE nations and remember we have "trade agreements" with them - all dollars in billions:
1991 - MX 2.4 surplus, Canada 5.1 deficit, China 12.7 deficit
1994 - MX 1.5 surplus, CA 13.9 deficit, CN 29.5 deficit
2000 - MX 24.6 deficit, CA 51.9 deficit, CN 83.8 deficit - favored nation by Clinton in '98.Read more
What pray-tell, is "liberal democracy"??! Evidently it's the utopian state of happiness & good feelings this author touts as the perfect globalist environment for every country on the face of the earth.
What these navel-gazing, egg-heads cannot comprehend is that their precious GLOBALISM has been around since the very beginning of time . . . there's never been a era in recorded history when despots, barbarians & megalomaniacs HAVEN'T proceeded to slash 'n burn & murder & enslave the populace, all in the pursuit of TOTALITARIANISM & unlimited POWER.Read more
Ironically, socialist "Do-Gooders" are willing to destroy the world in order to save it! Climate change, ending global poverty, and open trade/borders are just a few of the seemingly noble initiatives that are embraced by many of the unaware "do-gooders".
The globalists recruit the "unaware" who seek to save the planet and preach the need to force ALL nations to fall in line with their "know-it-all" One-World super-state vision. Mass migration, a favorite of socialists, is used like an accelerant for rapidly reaching their goals.Read more
This is far bigger than Obama's legacy. The globalist agenda is at stake - the UK referendum on leaving the EU produced a Brexit result which puts at risk the EU project and potentially undermines the globalists. Whether Trump becomes president in the US or not is key.
If Hillary had won, then she would have done everything in her considerable power to isolate the UK as a warning to other EU countries not to leave the EU.Read more
Many of these countries still have a huge problem with their populations that never seem to learn from history. As the worlds economies collapse from "globalism", these people are still there, voting for the "collective".
We already know that it is a failure of an idea, and we must bring down the other organizations that threaten the free world.
The EU and the UN are the next ideas that have seen their rise to unelected power, where they try to place huge levies on the worlds greatest countries.Read more
