NWO - The Great Globalization Reject

image: the greaj reject
 
Today my country, your country and the Earth face a corporate holocaust against human and Earthly rights. I call their efforts a holocaust because when giant corporations wield human rights backed by constitutions and the law (and therefore enforced by police, the courts, and armed forces)and sanctioned by cultural norms, the rights of people, other species and the Earth are annihilated.
 
You want sanity, democracy, community, an intact Earth? We can’t get there obeying Constitutional theory and law crafted by slave masters, imperialists, corporate masters, and Nature destroyers. We can’t get there kneeling before robed lawyers stockpiling class plunder precedent up their venerable sleeves. So isn’t disobedience the challenge of our age? Principled, inventive, escalating disobedience to liberate our souls, to transfigure our work as humans on this Earth. -Richard Grossman, 2001
- Globalization Defined
 
To date, one of the primary effects of globalization is the enrichment of corporations at the expense of the environment, local economies and worker’s rights. Globalization, as it is currently implemented, is loaded with problems and something needs to be done to fix it.
- The Case for Globalization, 2006
 
The United States has collectively decided that certain industries, like ELECTRONICS, are not worth keeping. Other industries, like MEATPACKING and chicken-processing, are worth keeping, but only if they’re staffed by a new proletariat IMMIGRANTS who labor for low hourly wages and without benefits or union representation. And now we’re being told that other industries like steel, coal, textiles, and auto parts can survive only to the extent that middle-class stakeholders choose to become INSECURE INDUSTRIAL WORKERS.
 
To be sure, Miller is right that broad forces like globalization, free trade, and the emergence of China as an economic power are making life difficult for U.S. manufacturers. But many of the wounds are self-inflicted. And our system has some perverse incentives that encourage smart executives like Miller to restructure at the expense of workers.
- The Oracle of Delphi, 2005
 
In the EY CEO SURVEY 2022, CEOs highlighted geopolitical tensions as the most critical risk to their future growth strategies.
 
The Self-reliance reigns scenario offers a rerun of the 1930s but with greater isolationism. Fraying alliances create a more volatile geopolitical environment; economic and security rationales are conflated; nationalism and populism are ascendent; and many national leaders turn away from alliances and international engagements.
 
Policymakers are motivated by achieving domestic self-sufficiency and economic security despite the high costs involved. Industrial policy, protectionism and export controls are embraced as antitrust efforts weaken to create national champions in an increasingly broad set of geostrategic sectors - ranging from technology and energy to life sciences and agribusiness.

Thanks to economic and trade SANCTIONS born from the Russian/Ukraine war, people are starting to wise up to the problems of everything being made somewhere else, even if still ignorant to the widespread damage OUTSOURCING can and has done to our LIVELIHOODS and INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY over the years.

In the prelude to the ATHENS AFFAIR, I tried to bring up the issue of skirting on telecom infrastructure security to the deaf ears of management interested more in cutting expenses, than keeping our national telecom infrastructure secure.  My job at the time was to proactively scan the network for ways to save money and spot traffic problems before they became service affecting.  While doing that, I stumbled on a security hole that definitely could have been service affecting if a hacker got in, but may have cost time and money to fix that management may not have been willing to do..

After an initial writeup urging for a policy to secure these dial-up lines, its urgency was ignored, and I was told to focus on proactively predicting and preventing network problems - like identifying unused tandem trunk groups to disconnect to save the company some money - not predicting and proactively preventing central offices from being taken over and 0WN3D by unauthorized, unknown parties.

All in the name of saving money.

Later I wrote my boss an EQUALLY ALARMING and ignored letter about outsourcing the Network Operations Center to COMMUNIST CHINA, POVERTY RIDDEN INDIA, or anywhere off American soil. Soon after I think the company OUTSOURCED I.T. WORK TO IBM - many of those folks in India - now with possibly full control of network and computer operations of the planet’s largest, and [maybe still the] most technically advanced telephone infrastructure.

The GREAT RESET and one big global society without lines dividing countries and people is something I like, but would never work in our world of spiritual immaturity. 

Globalization was a step in that direction of unity, but with the failure of GLOBAL UNIONS, the world labor movement turned into a RACE TO THE BOTTOM, putting workers around the world in competion with eachother.  Instead of bringing up the standard of living of workers in poor countries, our standard of living has gone down so much that we’re almost like a THIRD WORLD country.

Thank goodness for the people that refused to wear masks DURING COVID’S EARLY DAYS.  Here in the US it was mostly politically motivated - but it showed our rulers we’re not as easy to control as they may have thought we were.

Same with the COVID vaccinations.  Goverment and their PUPPETS at the NIH and CDC DID THEIR BEST TO SCARE US to get vaccinated - but two years later, only one in three got all four recommended shots, and ONE IN FIVE HASN’T GOTTEN ANY.

Another nail in the plans of world rule by the Davos crowd may come from Russian President Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, scaring multinationals not to export work to cheap foreign labor in other countries..

Who’d have thought - thanks to Putin, the U.S. brings work back to its own soil, and globalization dies.

I DIDN’T SAY the GREAT RESET isn’t going to happen, just Putin may have helped slow it down.

If the Russian/Ukraine war ends tomorrow - will the globalists pick up where they left off and go back to the OUTSOURCING OF AMERICA ?

About 90 years ago EDGAR CAYCE PREDICTED Russia may save the world:

When asked in 1932 about political and economic trends in Europe Cayce ZEROED IN on Russia:

Europe is as a house broken up. Some years ago there was the experience of a mighty peoples being overridden for the gratification and satisfaction of a few, irrespective of any other mans right. That peoples are going through the experience of being born again, and is the thorn in the flesh to many a political and financial nation in Europe, in the world.

Q. What is the name of that nation referred to?
A. Russia! (3976-8)

In Russia there comes the hope of the world, not as that sometimes termed of the communistic, or Bolshevik, no; but freedom, freedom! That each man will live for his fellow man! The principle has been born. It will take years for it to be crystallised, but out of Russia comes again the hope of the world.” (EDGAR CAYCE, 1944, NO. 3976-29)

Putin and globalization: The current scenerio

By Akankhya Mahapatra
The New Insight
September 4, 2022

The Dollar Index which tracks global financial conditions, hit a record high of 109.98, up almost 14 percent in six months. In its wake, the Japanese yen is jojoying at a record low of 141 against the dollar, the euro is hovering around 99, the pound sterling is hovering around 1.15 and the rupee is testing a level of 80 against the dollar.

In sharp contrast, and ironically, the only currency that has performed well is the Russian ruble, which has appreciated from 104 to 60 rubles per dollar since February.

The factoid illustrates how the doctrine of economic sanctions as a tool of deterrence has impacted Russia and the world. The war in Ukraine is now 192 days old and continues unabated. It is estimated that over 9 million Ukrainians have been forced to flee their homes since February 24. The death toll depends on who is telling the story and could be in the tens of thousands. Whether there will be a winner is unclear! What is clear and undeniable is that the cost of sanctions has led to the globalization of pain.

The inadequacy of the sanctions and their impact on Russia and other countries is reflected in the IMFs July review of global growth. The IMF slashed global growth to 3.2 percent from 3.6 percent in April and downgraded growth in all major economies, including the US, UK, Germany, France, Canada, Japan, Italy, Spain and India. The notable exception: Russia - its GDP growth was boosted by 2.5 percent. In fact, IMF chief economist Pierre-Olivier Gourinchas explained that higher energy prices had kept Russia afloat despite Western sanctions.

The sanctions were defined in superlatives as “unprecedented” and “like none the world had seen before” - and imposed by the US, EU and other NATO allies within hours of the launch of Russias “military special operation.” A parade of punitive measures ensued, triggering an arming of commerce and finance. For the global economy, just recovering from the pandemic and weighed down by the excesses of easy money, this was truly the final straw that broke the camel’s back. The consequence is the food, fuel and livelihood crises plaguing developed and developing economies.

The price of natural gas in Europe is now estimated at around US$500 per barrel of oil equivalent. UK household energy bills could skyrocket five times to 5000 a year. Gasoline prices around the world fuel rhetoric and anger. Countries are trying to install LNG terminals, look for new sources of gas and extend the life of nuclear power plants. Emerging markets - particularly net energy importers like India - face the twin burdens of imported inflation and widening current account deficits.

The irony is that while the world grapples with the energy crisis, Russia’s fuel export revenues are expected to rise 38 percent to over $347 billion. Thanks to the opportunity created by sanctions, higher fuel export volume and rising prices. In fact, Russia is reportedly considering parking up to $70 billion of its surplus energy export earnings in the Chinese yuan.

On Friday, the Group of Seven (G7) finance ministers presented another round of measures. They agreed to impose a price cap on Russian oil aimed at cutting revenue for Moscow’s war in Ukraine while avoiding price spikes. The critical details - which countries are ready and what the price cap per barrel would be - have yet to be decided. The outlines and content of this major measure are just as vague as the idea itself.

Newton’s law states that every action, even if it is not an equivalent reaction, will elicit an opposite reaction. Almost on cue, Russian energy giant Gazprom has announced that natural gas supplies through the key Nord Stream pipeline will not resume due to “technical problems.” The effects are bad. The IMFs World Outlook in July warned that “a complete halt to Russian gas exports to European economies in 2022 would significantly increase global inflation through higher energy prices.”

It is true that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine required a response from the global community. It should also be borne in mind that previous episodes of sanctions have not produced the intended results. It cannot be that Europe’s energy dependence on Russia was unknown. It’s also no secret that Russia and Ukraine made up a large part of the global food basket. The bitter fact is that in an interdependent globalized economy, measures like sanctions against big trading nations are ineffective.

Ohio shines after Putin kills globalization

By John Damschroder
Freemont News Messenger
March 30, 2022

March 23 was a pivotal day to see the forces shaping Ohios future through developments in Columbus, Cleveland, Washington and New York.

At high noon in Columbus, GOVERNOR MIKE DEWINE, in his first State of the State address since 2019, was touting a long list of achievements capped by the $20 billion investment for a COMPUTER CHIP FABRICATION PLANT BY INTEL in Licking County.

At the same time in Cleveland, Federal Judge JOHN ADAMS WAS FORCING disclosure that former FirstEnergy CEO Chuck Jones and former Vice President Michael Dowling were the executives who Җdevised and orchestrated a $64-million scheme to pay House Speaker Larry Householder and PUCO Chairman Sam Randazzo for official actions beneficial to FirstEnergy.

Jones, Dowling and Randazzo have not been charged with crimes and deny breaking the law in their involvement with legislation to bail out FirstEnergy for financially failing nuclear power plants including the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station in Ottawa County.

But FirstEnergy’s corporate guilty plea and $230 million fine sparked a shareholders suit before Adams that HE SAYS DEMANDS PUBLIC ACCOUNTABILITY for the ease of bribing public officials in Ohio before trust in state government can be restored.

DeWines speech had no proposals to protect against scandal, failing even to raise the issue as important for legislators to deal with. The powers that be in Columbus clearly agree with me that PROSPERITY IS POSSIBLE WITHOUT INTEGRITY. Ohio can have RESHORING without restoring public integrity; more over, they can see momentum returning for a restoration of Ohio’s place in the sun.

A letter released shortly after the speech, in New York by BlackRock Chairman Larry Fink, founder of the largest money manager in the world, shows conclusive evidence the tide has turned toward Ohio. Fink basically DECLARED GLOBALISM DEAD, a CASUALTY OF THE INVASION OF UKRAINE BY RUSSIA.

Citing fiduciary duty as money managers of more than $10 trillion in mostly pension money, Fink said “BlackRock is working to understand how changes around the world will impact investment outcomes.”

Translation; to boost corporate profits through CHEAP LABOR, we’ve turned Communist China from a poverty stricken land of hunger, to a militarized autocracy threatening armed invasion of Taiwan, the most advanced computer chip manufacturing center on the globe. If China follows the Putin path, trillions in American investment is lost overnight and decades of business strategy becomes instant tragedy.

The reshoring trend I have written about often in this space is in the very early stages of takeoff. Capital investment outside the U.S. is dangerous. It’s no longer worth saving money on labor costs when the entire investment can become worthless overnight. With the production pendulum swinging back to the United States, Ohio’s inherent advantages of advanced manufacturing history, strategic location and world class logistics experience, easily offset the impact of corrupt state government. Between China and Ohio there’s no question where your money is safest.

And make no mistake, there is serious competition between China and Ohio for the future at this very moment. Also on Wednesday, in Washington, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger was testifying before the Senate Commerce Committee in support of THE CHIPS ACT and the $52 billion in incentives to bring the essential fabrication plants back to the United States. Gelsinger said with the legislation, Intels $20 billion investment in Ohio will grow to $100 billion and create a “silicon” heartland.

As COMPUTER CHIPS BECOME MORE IMPORTANT TO LIFE AS WE KNOW IT, with each passing day, the share manufactured in America has slipped to just 12%. Since Wall Street and Washington suddenly have as much trust in globalization as Ohioans paying attention do in state government integrity, Governor DeWine is right, the sun is rising on Ohio.
