Η πρώτη (ίσως και η τελευταία) θετική ενέργεια από τον Τραμπ!

Ίσως ανακόψει σημαντικά την παγκόσμια νεοφιλελεύθερη επέλαση


Παρά τα πρώτα απογοητευτικά σημάδια από την κυβέρνηση Τραμπ, με τον διορισμό μιας στρατιάς πλουτοκρατών και πρώην τσακαλιών της Goldman Sachs, ο νέος Αμερικανός πρόεδρος προχώρησε και σε μια θετική κίνηση. Πρόκειται για την υπογραφή υπέρ της αποχώρησης των ΗΠΑ από τη συμφωνία ελεύθερου εμπορίου μεταξύ των χωρών του ειρηνικού (TPP).

Από το tvxs.gr :

Ο νέος πρόεδρος των ΗΠΑ Ντόναλντ Τραμπ υπέγραψε το διάταγμα για την απόσυρση των ΗΠΑ από τη συμφωνία ελεύθερου εμπορίου μεταξύ των χωρών του ειρηνικού (TPP). Πρόκειται για μια συμφωνία αντίστοιχη με την TTIP, τη συμφωνία ελεύθερου εμπορίου μεταξύ ΕΕ και ΗΠΑ, που έχει προκαλέσει μεγάλες αντιδράσεις και στις δύο πλευρές του ατλαντικού.

Με το εν λόγω διάταγμα μπαίνει τέλος στη συμμετοχή της Αμερικής στην συμφωνία, την οποία είχε διαπραγματευτεί επί σειρά ετών η κυβέρνηση του Μπαράκ Ομπάμα και κατά πολλούς θεωρείτο το αντίβαρο στην αυξανόμενη επιρροή της Κίνας. Ο Τραμπ προεκλογικά την είχε κάνει λόγο για μια συμφωνία που παραβιάζει τα συμφέροντα των Αμερικανών εργαζομένων και είχε υποσχεθεί την κατάργησή της.

Η συμφωνία, που είχε προωθηθεί από την Ουάσινγκτον με στόχο να διαμορφώσει τους κανόνες του διεθνούς εμπορίου στον 21ο αιώνα, υπογράφτηκε το 2015, αλλά δεν έχει ακόμη τεθεί σε ισχύ.

Στην αμφιλεγόμενη συμφωνία συμμετείχαν 12 χώρες (Αυστραλία, Μπρουνέι, Καναδάς, Χιλή, Ιαπωνία, Μαλαισία, Μεξικό, Νέα Ζηλανδία, Περού, Σιγκαπούρη, Ηνωμένες Πολιτείες και Βιετνάμ), οι οποίες αντιπροσωπεύουν το 40% της παγκόσμιας οικονομίας.

Σχολιάζοντας την προαναγγελία του Τραμπ για την απόσυρση των ΗΠΑ από την TPP, ο Ιάπωνας πρωθυπουργός Σίνζο Άμπε, ένας από τους πιο ένθερμους υποστηρικτές της συμφωνίας ελεύθερου εμπορίου, είχε επισημάνει πως η TPP χωρίς τις ΗΠΑ «δεν έχει νόημα».

Η TPP ανήκει στην ομάδα των διεθνών εμπορικών συμφωνιών (TTIP, CETA, TiSA and TPP) που σφραγίζουν την οριστική κυριαρχία των πολυεθνικών και τραπεζικών τεράτων πάνω στα κράτη.

Κατά τις τελευταίες δεκαετίες και στις δύο πλευρές του Ατλαντικού, έχουμε δει μια τεράστια μετατόπιση ισχύος από το δημόσιο συμφέρον προς τα ιδιωτικά συμφέροντα. Μία πίεση για οικονομική φιλελευθεροποίηση, αυξανόμενη ανισότητα, φτώχεια και περιβαλλοντική υποβάθμιση. Οι συμφωνίες αυτές είναι μια προσπάθεια των λόμπι να καταστήσουν αυτή την πραγματικότητα μη αναστρέψιμη.

Καθώς οι διαπραγματεύσεις για τις συμφωνίες αυτές γίνονται υπό πλήρη μυστικότητα, ορισμένες διαρροές εγγράφων έχουν δείξει ότι αυτές απειλούν τη δημοκρατία, τις δημόσιες παροχές, τα κοινωνικά και περιβαλλοντικά στάνταρ, ενώ βάζουν σε μεγαλύτερο κίνδυνο τις μικρές αγροτικές καλλιέργειες, τα διατροφικά και περιβαλλοντικά στάνταρ και γενικά τη δυνατότητα των ανθρώπων να αλλάξουν τις κοινωνίες προς το καλύτερο.

Οι επωφελούμενοι των συμφωνιών αυτών είναι οι μεγάλες εταιρίες που τις σχεδίασαν, όχι οι πολίτες. Είναι πολύ απογοητευτικό το γεγονός ότι οι κυβερνήσεις έχουν αγνοήσει τελείως τις μαζικές διαδηλώσεις στην Ευρώπη και αλλού ενάντια σ'αυτές τις συμφωνίες και συνέχισαν τις 'διαπραγματεύσεις' με τα λόμπι, όπως ήταν προγραμματισμένο να γίνει.

Είναι επίσης πιθανό ότι έχουμε να κάνουμε με ένα εσωτερικό πόλεμο εντός και εκτός των ΗΠΑ μεταξύ του μεγάλου κεφαλαίου με αφορμή αυτές τις συμφωνίες και ο Τραμπ απλώς χρησιμοποιείται σε αυτό τον πόλεμο.

Εξίσου απογοητευτικό είναι το γεγονός ότι ένα πιθανό πλήγμα κατά της TPP (και ελπίζουμε και κατά των άλλων συμφωνιών), δεν θα έρθει από τη δύναμη των πολιτών, των οποίων η φωνή έχει αγνοηθεί τελείως από το διεφθαρμένο πολιτικό κατεστημένο. Θα έρθει από τον πόλεμο ανάμεσα στο μεγάλο κεφάλαιο. Και έπρεπε να περιμένουμε κάποιον σαν τον Ντόναλντ Τραμπ προκειμένου να κάνει την πρώτη σημαντική κίνηση κατά αυτών των συμφωνιών. Είναι μια απογοητευτική διαπίστωση που δείχνει το βαθμό παρακμής των δημοκρατικών αξιών.

Παρόλα αυτά, οι αντι-νεοφιλελεύθερες δυνάμεις της Αριστεράς θα πρέπει να αρπάξουν την ευκαιρία και να εκμεταλλευτούν τέτοιες ενέργειες σαν αυτή του Τραμπ, ώστε να επιτύχουν περισσότερες νίκες κατά των συμφωνιών αυτών μέχρι την τελική τους διάλυση.

Confirmed: Alex Jones' popularity rises after Infowars banning from social media

globinfo freexchange
We wouldn't expect to be confirmed so fast on this.
A few days ago in the article IT and social media supergiants have just made Alex Jones a hero in the eyes of the ultra-conservative audience, we wrote that Alex Jones' wet dream has just become reality thanks to the combined move by Facebook, Apple, YouTube and Spotify to ban Infowars. These private IT and social media companies couldn't give a better gift to him right now. At a time where Infowars was going through a saturated period according to the best scenario, the corporate giants actually saved it with that stupid(?) strategy.
Suddenly, a corporate branch of the liberal establishment gave real value to Alex Jones' awful performance, pretending to be the 'anti-establishment' hero - just like Donald Trump - and made him a real hero in the eyes of the ultra-conservative audience that has been brainwashed by his absurd conspiracy theories.
Only a couple of days later, Kyle Kulinski of the…

Corporate media begin typical operations to make progressives comply with the establishment

The operations will multiply and become more aggressive towards 2020
globinfo freexchange
Corporate media of the ultra-conservative side made already a ridiculous attempt to present Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as totally unreliable. In the video, TYT hosts analyze very well the specific strategy followed by Conservative Review TV.
The strategy is quite simple: you create a fake video, you upload it on social media and after being watched by thousands you admit that it was created for satire purposes. Yet, the propaganda will be definitely effective because only a small portion will notice that this was satire. Most of the viewers (especially from the conservative audience that has been heavily brainwashed for decades to love corporate America and believe whatever comes from the Fox apparatus) will believe whatever transmitted from the ultra-conservative propaganda machine.
But the corporate media of the liberal side have a very big problem right now. It is almost impossible to start an open …

While you've been occupied with that Infowars-banning story, the establishment machine already started a covert censorship operation against leftist independent media

Developments are coming like storm. Just when the prediction that Infowars banning will actually strengthen Alex Jones' popularity became true, it seems that our second 'prophecy' (and prediction by many progressives), also becomes true. According to this, Infowars banning will be used as a blueprint by the establishment machine to shutdown progressive independent media and voices, based on that 'fake news' narrative.
We wrote that a corporate branch of the liberal establishment gave real value to Alex Jones' awful performance, pretending to be the 'anti-establishment' hero - just like Donald Trump - and made him a real hero in the eyes of the ultra-conservative audience that has been brainwashed by his absurd conspiracy theories.
Max Blumenthal speaks with Aaron Mate and gives details about Alex Jones' dark role in the whole story:
Alex Jones has always served establishment priorities. First, by taking the 9/11 truth movement, whi…

‘I knew and approved the assassination of Maduro’ claims TV show host

globinfo freexchange
Peruvian journalist Jaime Bayly claimed in his TV show Bayly, that he was aware and had personally approved the attempted assassination of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.
"My reliable sources have called me and told me 'on Saturday we will assassinate Maduro' and I told them 'do it'," he said in his show and added: "When they asked me if I would condemn their move I replied that if they want I can buy them another drone."
Referring to Maduro, the journalist called him to be on alert. "My friends," he said, "are very capable, they have already scared you and there are more to come".
In a press conference, Maduro wondered how it is possible a host of a show in the US stating openly that he was aware of the attempted assassination.

How normal human behavior became a false mental disorder epidemic

globinfo freexchange
In the early nineties, an epidemic of mental disorder was sweeping America and Britain. It had been uncovered by a new system for identifying disorders. Psychiatry had been attacked for relying on the personal and fallible judgement of psychiatrists.
But instead, a new objective method based on checklists had been invented. These listed only the objective symptoms, and deliberately did not enquire into why the individuals felt an anxiety. In the late 80s, nationwide surveys had revealed an incredible picture: more than 50% of Americans suffered from mental disorders.
But at the very same, the drug companies had announced that they had created a new type of drug, called an SSRI, which they claimed, targeted the circuits inside the brain that were causing these malfunctions. The SSRIs were marketed under names like "Prozac". What they did was alter the amounts of serotonin that flowed across the circuit connections within the brain, and they readjusted the …

The US empire was always conducting trade wars that even included deliberately created cartels

globinfo freexchange
Donald Trump is using his trade wars to support the part of the US capital that has heavily lost from free trade globalization, which is more powerful than ever in our days. This is also part of the Trump agenda to persuade Americans for his "patriotic devotion" based on his "America First" slogan.
The reality is that the US empire was always conducting trade wars that included not only tariffs on specific products, but even deliberately created cartels.
In the early 90s the Clinton administration uncritically adopted the neoliberal doctrine from Ronald Reagan and continued the big fraud against the majority of the Americans.
On the one hand, the Clinton administration was selling the big fairy tale of neoliberalism to the American public: free market capitalism would bring prosperity for all through that trickle-down fiasco. And it was translated, as always, in further cuts in public spending - more tax-cuts for the super-rich. On the other hand, …

Why the rapidly escalating and most disgusting propaganda against Jeremy Corbyn is actually a good sign

failed evolution
In the UK front, the liberal establishment machine is escalating its propaganda campaign against Jeremy Corbyn through that 'anti-Semitic' smearing. In reality, his only 'crime', of course, is that he is too lefty for the totally-occupied-by-neoliberalism Britain.
After the collapse of that ridiculous Skripal case - that ended to an embarrassing fiasco for the Western clowns - the establishment machine in the UK gave up its campaign to smear Jeremy Corbyn as a Russian stooge.
The new 'brilliant strategy' of the establishment tools is simply to paint Jeremy Corbyn as 'anti-Semite'. Which is actually the permanent smearing by the mainstream media and the liberal political center - many have been bought by the Israeli lobby- against anyone who has the ‘audacity’ to condemn the Israeli crimes against Palestinians.
The logical leap in this case is literally ridiculous: if you condemn the Israeli crimes against Palestinians, immediately means tha…

Retired US army colonel implies that a war with Iran could start with a Vietnam-type false flag operation

globinfo freexchange
After Tucker Carlson brought additional embarrassment to the pseudo-Left warmongering liberals with his anti-war positions, he tried to make Trump appear, more or less, as a kind of peace defender. He was joined by Douglas Macgregor, a retired US Army Colonel.
Both Carlson and Macgregor attempted to blame Trump's warmongering officials and the war lobby for the fact that another devastating war, this time with Iran, becomes more and more possible. The truth is slightly different because Trump has enormous responsibilities for this development too. He was from the start very hostile against Iran, he did everything in his power to kill the Iran nuclear deal and put the most bloodthirsty, anti-Iran neocons in key positions.
Yet, it would be worth to focus on a peculiar statement by Macgregor at the end of this short interview. As he said:
           You and I know that there are lot of people who would welcome conflict with Iran, that's obvious. I think the presi…

WikiLeaks paper shows France & UK pioneers behind Libya breakup

On March 16, 2016 WikiLeaks launched a searchable archive for over 30 thousand emails & email attachments sent to and from Hillary Clinton's private email server while she was Secretary of State. The 50,547 pages of documents span from 30 June 2010 to 12 August 2014. 7,570 of the documents were sent by Hillary Clinton. The emails were made available in the form of thousands of PDFs by the US State Department as a result of a Freedom of Information Act request. More PDFs were made available on February 29, 2016, and a set of additional 995 emails was imported up to February 2, 2018.

A letter from Clintons' top advisor Sidney Blumenthal to Hillary Clinton in early March, 2012, reveals that two of the Western neocolonial powers, France and UK, were trying to breakup Libya in order to secure a privileged place upon the Libyan corpse for their big companies. It appears that both Sarkozy and Cameron, as well as their intelligence services, were working closely…

The financial system of chaos: no one can tell the 'when', 'where' and ‘how’ of the next financial meltdown

globinfo freexchange
In previous article we wrote that, the last mutation of capitalism, which has started about four decades ago, appears to contain the tools of its final demolition. Financial capitalism, accompanied with the corresponding neoliberal ideology, created a deeply unequal and unstable system.
Another study by The Democracy Collaborative comes to confirm that we live in the most unstable times, where financial crises become more frequent and more devastating. According to the study:
It appears that, contrary to the great moderation theory, the occurrence of financial crises has been accelerating in the neoliberal era.
An important 2001 paper by a number of economists from Rutgers, Berkeley, and the World Bank found that "since 1973 crisis frequency has been double that of the Bretton Woods and classical gold standard periods and is rivaled only by the crisis-ridden 1920s and 1930s. History thus confirms that there is something different and disturbing about our age.&qu…
