International Finance: Guess who’s now joined the AIIB?
Boy, how our corporate cabal has changed their tune. Last week, I reported that they carried on about how horrible a decision it was for the UK to join China’s Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB). And now… they want in! They decided this after Germany, France, and Italy joined, and several other countries are currently considering joining, too. (2)
Created by 22 countries, this China-led AIIB has become the “it-thing” to invest in –seemingly sweeping the world like a trendy nite club where everybody who’s anybody is trying to get onto the VIP guest list. I will absolutely state for the record that it is most atypical for the US to back-peddle and be “the followers” by joining AIIB basically from peer-pressure, in my opinion. It’s as if the once-almighty corporate cabal is scurrying now to catch up to the progress that the rest of the world is developing. And thank goodness –it’s about time.
To be honest, I think that we, the people of the world, have been pushing and pushing and pushing for change, and our cabal dug in their heels –inflexible, unbudging– yet when the world is about to create a new competitive financial system, now they come a-running so they’re not left in the dust.
Of course, we know China’s a founding member of BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa), which gives credence to the changes that those nations are helping to manifest –go BRICS! Given that countries are starting to join the AIIB, I believe it’s safe to say that finally world changes are materializing, as evidenced by the implementation of AIIB and its growing membership.
Thank you China for leading the way through these following ways, and for helping our world effectively get ourselves out of the stuckness of the old financial system of our controlling cabal!
“• One, cleaning up the house – by promoting good governance through the anti-corruption campaign,
• Two, cleaning up the air – by curbing pollution and preserving the environment,
• And three, clearing the path to further engagement with the world – through further participation in the multilateral dialogue and through more international investment and trade.”
“Indeed, as China navigates the ‘new normal’ of its own economy, it also contributes more to the global common good – to economic and financial stability, to environmental sustainability, and to a multilateral approach that is equal to the pressing global challenges facing us today.” (1)
International Peace & Military: Obama states he’ll honor President Ghani’s request.
While I am extremely ready for us to bring all our troops home, I understand politics is a tricky thing. Especially in the middle of impending change across our globe, as evidenced by numerous countries supporting AIIB: “On October 24, 2014… the Signing Ceremony took place in Beijing, China, where [China] formally recognized the establishment of the bank. 22 countries’ representatives have signed the document, including Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Laos, Kuwait, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Oman, Pakistan, the Philippines, Qatar, China, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Ubekistan, and Viet Nam.” (1)
In other words, our world is right in the midst of drastic reform, yet the cabal is still in power. As we mentioned in our previous story, our beloved cabal found themselves playing catch-up in joining the new financial system. Interestingly, this bank was officially founded last fall, and yet our cabal has held out for 6 months, hoping they can still remain the financial power.
Please don’t mis-understand: I’m not saying I want China or any other country to “take us over,” or even for the cabal to change ownership, such as China be the “new boss.” No. What I’m saying is that, it’s my belief that the BRICS countries are tired of our beloved corporate cabal driving our economy and standards of living into the ground through debt slavery and war.
And as such, world events are finally out from behind closed doors and are moving onto an overt stage where we, the people of the world, can see what’s now happening. While the cabal’s grip is starting to loosen, as evidenced by being “forced” to join the AIIB or else fall out of the financial race, they will still paint the news as if everything is status quo. Forgive me, I digress… back to the story!
President Obama will slow down the removal of our troops from Afghanistan keeping 9,800 still there; however, he assured us that his timeline for full removal will be honored.
“Obama… made it clear that he wouldn’t depart from his current plan to close the remaining U.S. bases in Afghanistan and consolidate the remaining U.S. forces in Kabul by the end of 2016.”
“The White House decision to keep about 5,000 additional troops in Afghanistan came at [Afghan President Ashraf ] Ghani’s request and also reflected the growing concern of U.S. military commanders. Last year’s fighting season was one of the bloodiest for Afghan civilians and security forces since the U.S. invasion in 2001.”
War must stop in order for peace to reign, and in my opinion, it’s never the answer. Let me be very clear: I personally do not support violence or bloodshed any time. It is never acceptable. I don’t want our troops there.
If your situation is particularly challenging at the moment, then please know that this too shall pass.
Across our beautiful world, We Are All One.
