Seismic Activity On The Rise Across The Planet

News Image 

BY MICHAEL SNYDER/END OF THE AMERICAN DREAM DECEMBER 01, 2021


Should we be alarmed by all of the seismic activity that is suddenly happening all over the globe?  I don’t know if you have noticed, but major earthquakes and earthquake swarms have been shaking key areas of our planet in recent weeks.  

On Monday, it was Japan’s turn.  It was being reported that a magnitude 6.5 earthquake had been detected southeast of Honshu, Japan and that immediately got my attention.  

Whenever a significant earthquake hits Japan, I am always reminded of the looming threat of Mt. Fuji.  One of these days, Mt. Fuji is going to come roaring back to life and Tokyo will be absolutely devastated.  Let us hope that such a cataclysm can be put off for as long as possible.

Prior to the earthquake near Honshu, a magnitude 7.5 quake rattled northern Peru on Sunday…

A magnitude 7.5 earthquake rocked northern Peru on Sunday, collapsing a 16th-century Catholic church tower although no deaths or serious injuries were immediately reported.
The good news is that the quake happened in a sparsely populated region, but it came right after a magnitude 5.1 earthquake had struck the outskirts of Lima…

The quake struck hours after a magnitude 5.1 temblor with the epicenter in the outskirts of Lima rattled the region. Hernando Tavera, head of the Geophysical Institute of Peru, said at least four aftershocks took place after the latter quake, and he warned residents to prepare for more aftershocks.
The coast of Peru sits directly along the Ring of Fire just like the west coast of the United States does, and earlier this month a very alarming earthquake swarm in northern California received quite a bit of attention…

A swarm of earthquakes rumbled under the San Ramon-Danville area Wednesday, measuring as high as 3.9 in magnitude, giving local residents a subtle reminder of the seismic activity deep under the region.
The 3.9 magnitude quake struck at 11:43 a.m., followed by an aftershock measuring 2.6 magnitude at 11:46 a.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey. A third aftershock with 3.0 magnitude struck at 11:58 a.m. More than a dozen smaller quakes have followed over the last several hours.

Could it be possible that the Ring of Fire is moving into a period of increased activity?
We know that it is just a matter of time before California is hit by the “Big One”, and so we will want to closely watch the west coast in the months ahead.
Meanwhile, the east coast is being shaken as well.

On Saturday, North Carolina was hit by the sixth significant earthquake in less than a week…
Another small earthquake shook North Carolina near Winston-Salem early on Saturday, Nov. 27, geologists said. The 1.9 magnitude quake hit at about 7:55 a.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Its epicenter was located about 3 miles southwest of Winston-Salem, which is in Forsyth County and about 100 miles west of Raleigh.

The middle of the country has been seeing unusual earthquakes too.  On November 17th, the New Madrid fault zone was hit by multiple earthquakes, including a magnitude 4.0 quake that really shook a lot of people up.

I have been writing about the danger posed by the New Madrid fault zone for a very long time, and scientists assure us that at some point our luck will run out.
Speaking of potential threats, there is an area west of Yellowstone that has been shaken by more than 4,300 significant earthquakes since early 2020…

Since that initial large earthquake in 2020, known as a mainshock, there have been over 4,300 aftershocks in the same area. According to the USGS, this uptick in seismic activity has alarmed some people. “A common question seen after many earthquakes in the western U.S. is “Will this earthquake trigger an eruption at Yellowstone?” Or, “is this seismicity related to Yellowstone?”, USGS wrote in today’s update. However they also provided a simple answer: “no.”

Hopefully the USGS is correct.

Because a full-blown eruption of Yellowstone would be an unimaginable catastrophe.
In recent years, we have seen once dormant volcanoes erupt all over the planet.  The eruption that we recently witnessed in the Canary Islands is just one example, and we just learned that “several new volcanic vents” on the side of that volcano have just opened up…
Several new volcanic vents have opened up on the Spanish island of La Palma, releasing new lava that is speeding down a ridge and threatening to widen the damage to evacuated land, roads and homes, authorities said last night.

The molten rock coming out from the main new vent was very fluid and was advancing at a speed of 20ft per minute towards areas unspoiled until now, said María José Blanco, a spokeswoman for Spain’s National Geographic Institute.

So much is happening all over the globe that it is easy to become numb to it all.
After going through so much over the last couple of years, many of us have developed “disaster fatigue” at this point.

But the truth is that what we have been through so far is just the beginning.
The Bible describes a time where much more is coming, and most of the population is completely and utterly unprepared for what is ahead.

Why The Stage Is Set For The End Times

News Image 

BY BRITT GILLETTE


As a student of bible prophecy for almost 30 years, and specifically end times bible prophecy, no other time has seemed as close to the end times as right now. Why do I say this? Because, particularly in the past year, the geopolitical and economic stage has been set for the fulfillment of several end times prophecies. 
We now have several potential crises on the horizon. And those potential crises are the same ones the Bible says we’ll experience either in the Tribulation or the days immediately preceding the Tribulation. Below are just a few:

The Gog of Magog War

The Bible points to a future attack on Israel known as the Gog of Magog War (Ezekiel 38-39). It says a military alliance that includes Russia, Iran, Turkey, and a number of Muslim nations will attack Israel “in the latter days” (Ezekiel 38:8) when God brings His people home from among the enemy nations (Ezekiel 39:27). 
Today, we see those nations forming an alliance for the first time – an alliance that has never existed in world history. Russia, Iran, and Turkey all have an active military presence in Syria, meaning they’re right on Israel’s northern border at this moment. Why is this important? Because Ezekiel specifically says this alliance will attack Israel from the north (Ezekiel 38:15; Ezekiel 39:2). In addition, the ancient territory of Magog covers a number of modern day nations, one of which is Afghanistan. 
Up until recently, it was difficult to imagine U.S. occupied Afghanistan joining the Gog of Magog invasion. But now? With the Taliban back in control, it would be odd if they didn’t join this invading alliance. The way nations are aligned today, the Gog of Magog invasion could take place tomorrow. All the pieces are in place. Even just a few years ago, that wasn’t the case.

Global War Prospects

While “rumors of war” have been common since the end of World War II, the current situation is different. The world is in the midst of an energy crisis. Europe has seen natural gas prices surge in the past month. China and India are experiencing rolling blackouts of electrical service. Not only will this create problems in an already broken global supply chain, but these are the conditions which often give rise to war. And energy resource issues could provide the spark that ignites the next world war.

For example, China threatens to invade Taiwan on an almost daily basis. If China does invade, the United States claims it will defend Taiwan. If it occurs, such a conflict will devastate the world. Both China and the U.S. are nuclear powers, and both likely have high-tech space weapons, cyberwarfare capabilities, and innovative weapons never before seen on a battlefield. Such a conflict could easily erupt into World War III. Even if it doesn’t, the global economy would collapse and the global supply chain would be irreparably broken if the two largest economic powers went to war.

The same is true in regard to Israel and Iran. Both nations have been engaged in a type of “cold war” for years, and with each passing month, the prospect of all-out war only increases. A conflict between the two could pull the Middle East and the entire world into a cataclysmic war.

Throw in India’s border disputes with China and Pakistan as well as North Korea’s belligerence toward its neighbors and the United States, and the prospects of global war are probably the highest they’ve been in the post-Cold War era. At any moment, a flare up in any one of several hotspots could cascade into a global war. Yet, contrary to popular belief, the world will survive World War III. 

The death toll will be enormous, but the human race won’t be annihilated (Revelation 6:4). The Bible says a global war will kick off the Tribulation and precede the global rule of the Antichrist. Right now, the odds of a devastating global war appear high.

Global Inflation Prospects

Shutdowns, travel regulations, and other COVID restrictions have wreaked havoc on the global supply chain since early 2020, and it’s only getting worse. Lack of shipping containers, global port congestion, and a lack of workers to produce, transport, and stock goods have led to shortages in everything from toilet paper and microprocessors to chicken wings and tractor tires. 

Meanwhile, central bank and government policies creating low interest rates and instituting rent/mortgage moratoriums, student loan moratoriums, stimulus checks, and tax credits have only added to demand. Basic economics says if you lower supply and increase demand, you get higher prices. We’re seeing that right now, especially at the grocery store. Don’t expect it to get better.
The Bible says the world will experience an unprecedented hyperinflation during the Tribulation. Following the global war outlined in Revelation 6:4, the world experiences a time when an entire day’s wages will barely buy enough food to survive (Revelation 6:5-6). 

Given the inflation and shortages we’re already seeing, how bad will it get if a major war breaks out anywhere in the world, much less an all-out global war like the one foretold in Revelation 6?

The Rising Mark of the Beast System

Throughout the world, governments are pushing COVID vaccines. Those who refuse the jab face a long list of penalties, including loss of employment, healthcare, freedom of movement, and liberty in general. Those pushing vaccine mandates and vaccine passports seek to coerce people into compliance. The goal is to ostracize the unvaccinated from society.

If these coercive policies remain in place, they’ll create a mark of the beast system indistinguishable in impact from the true mark of the beast (Revelation 13:16). In doing so, they’ll pave the way for the rise of the Antichrist and the actual mark of the beast as outlined in the Book of Revelation.
The Bible says those who refuse the mark of the beast will be shut out of the global economy. They’ll be unable to buy or sell anything without it (Revelation 13:17). 

Today, we see the stage being set for the fulfillment of this prophecy. In some places, vaccine passports are required to appear anywhere in public, including grocery stores. Is it really hard to believe they’ll one day be required to engage in any buy/sell transactions?

The Days of Noah and Lot

Jesus said when He returns, the world will be “like it was in the days of Noah” (Matthew 24:37). Jesus said, “In those days before the flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat. People didn’t realize what was going to happen until the flood came and swept them all away. That is the way it will be when the Son of Man comes.” Matthew 24:38-39 (NLT)

Is this what we see in the world today? I think so. Even after 19 months of a global pandemic, a global supply chain crisis, and threats of war, people are still enjoying banquets and parties and weddings. In other words, much of life remains normal. After a series of events that should have shaken the world from its slumber, most people continue to go about their daily lives unaware of the times in which we live. 
The times in which we live are clear to anyone who knows the Bible. We are living in the days just before the Tribulation takes place. Jesus will soon return to take His church (1 Corinthians 15:51-53; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18). How can I be so sure? Because Jesus says so. Jesus said when you see all the signs He and the prophets said to look for, you should look up (Luke 21:28), and we see those signs right now. 

The Convergence of Signs

So what are these signs? Jesus and the prophets pointed to dozens and dozens of signs. This article only cites a few, but each one is undeniable. Their convergence for the first time in history tells us the return of the Lord is close at hand. In addition to the events already mentioned, these signs include:

• Israel Back in the Land (Jeremiah 23:7-8; Ezekiel 39:28; Isaiah 11:12; Psalm 107:3; Ezekiel 20:34; Isaiah 11:11-12)
• The Jewish People in Control of Jerusalem (Luke 21:24-28)
• The Gospel Preached Throughout the World (Matthew 24:14)• An Increase in Travel and Knowledge (Daniel 12:4)
• Arrival of the Exponential Curve (Matthew 24:3‐8)
• Israel Surrounded by Enemies (Psalm 83:4; Psalm 83:12; Ezekiel 11:14‐17; Ezekiel 35:10)
• Israel’s Exceedingly Great Army (Ezekiel 37:10; Zechariah 12:6; Zechariah 12:8)
• The Rise of a United Europe (Daniel 2, Daniel 7, Revelation 17)
• The Rise of a Global Government (Revelation 13:7-17)
• The State of Mankind (2 Timothy 3:1-4)
• Denial of the Signs (2 Peter 3:3‐4)

Stay Awake

Jesus commanded us to watch for these signs (Matthew 24:42). He scolded the Pharisees and religious leaders when they failed to recognize the signs of His first coming (Matthew 16:3). Will He do any different for those who fail to recognize the signs of His second coming? Jesus warned us not to be caught sleeping when He returns (Mark 13:36). 

Now is the time to point out these signs to others and warn them the end is near. If you’ve been waiting to share the Gospel with someone, don’t wait any longer. You may not have another opportunity. Jesus is coming. The signs are all around us.

Prince Charles Supports the Great Reset

The prince of Wales has turned to some unsavory allies to change the world.

BY ANDREW MIILLER • OCTOBER 20

The heir to the British throne is warning that a United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow could be our last chance to save the planet from climate change. In an interview released on October 11, Prince Charles emphasized that Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison should attend next month’s climate event despite Australia’s covid-19 travel ban, because “[i]f we don’t really take the decisions that are vital now, it’s going to be almost impossible to catch up.”

This is not the first time Prince Charles has warned we have had our last chance. In 2014, he said a Climate Change Conference in Paris was our “last chance,” and in 2009, he said a Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen was our “last chance.” Yet global temperatures have only risen by about a degree since the Copenhagen conference, and an upcoming period of low solar activity will likely slow even this mild warming (see our articles “Greenhouse Apocalypse” and “The Deadly Climate Change Deception” for why carbon emissions do not actually cause natural disasters).

Yet none of this will stop Prince Charles’s ambitious plan to revolutionize the world economy.

Last August, Prince Charles wrote an editorial for the Daily Mail declaring that the climate change crisis can only be solved by businesses and governments working together. He wants businesses to sign a charter called the Terra Carta, which commits them to put “sustainability” at the heart of their activities. When this charter talks about “sustainability,” however, it means meeting the carbon reduction targets set by the Paris Climate Accords. Meeting these reduction targets would weaken the manufacturing sectors of the United States and Britain while empowering multinational corporations that manufacture goods in countries where environmental regulations are less stringent. (Please read “What the Paris Climate Agreement Was Really About,” by Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry, for information about the threat the Paris Climate Accords poses to the U.S. and UK.)

More than 400 companies have already signed the Terra Carta, and Prince Charles hopes to use the Glasgow summit to convince even more companies to do so. Along with Pope Francis and World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab, Prince Charles has launched a project called the “Great Reset” in the wake of the covid-19 pandemic. Instead of free markets, this globalist project says the world should implement wealth taxes, government regulations and massive infrastructure spending programs in its quest to “Build Back Better” after the pandemic and halt climate change.

“The prince believes that as countries and businesses around the world look to rebuild after this crisis, there is a unique but narrow window of opportunity to accelerate the sustainability agenda in a way that puts people and planet first,” said a Sustainable Markets Initiative spokesman in an interview with the Telegraph. “Before industries simply return to the old ways of doing things, this group, led by the prince and Professor Schwab, is setting out to show we have a chance to recover by doing things differently and with a lot less negative impact on the world we live in.”

Comments like this one have caused the editors at Vanity Fair to ask: “Is Prince Charles Using the Pandemic to Take on Capitalism?” The answer to their question is a resounding “Yes.” Coronavirus lockdowns reduced carbon emissions by 2.8 billion tons in 2020. A Nature journal piece notes how these lockdowns mentally prepared people for the “personal carbon allowances” necessary to meet the carbon reduction targets set by the Paris Climate Accords.

Now the World Economic Forum is seeking guidance from the Catholic Church on how to use Catholic social doctrine to undermine free markets. This is alarming. Prince Charles is heir to the throne of the nation primarily responsible for spreading free markets around the world, yet he has chosen to team up with the pope and a German engineer to destroy those markets.

On Dec. 8, 2020, Pope Francis established what he calls the Council for Inclusive Capitalism With the Vatican. Led by the pope and Cardinal Peter Turkson, it includes numerous leaders from Fortune 500 companies with 200 million employees in 163 countries and $2.1 trillion in market capitalization—more money than the gross domestic product of Italy. It is led by a core group of 27 leaders it calls the Guardians for Inclusive Capitalism, which include the chairmen and chief executives of Allianz, Bank of America, BP, Dupont, Johnson & Johnson, Mastercard, Merck and Visa.

Many have said this real-life organization seems like something out of a conspiracy theory forum, but its goals are aligned with Professor Schwab’s World Economic Forum and Prince Charles’s Sustainable Markets Initiative. They want to use something akin to Catholic social doctrine to establish a “third way” between capitalism and communism.

Like Pope Francis and Klaus Schwab, Prince Charles is espousing a philosophy sometimes called state capitalism but which used to be called corporatism. While pure socialism is direct government control of resources (and people), corporatism permits people to engage in private enterprise but manages them heavily through corporations. These corporations group people together according to their interests and social functions so they can regulate behavior.

Before the Second World War, fascist dictators like Francisco Franco of Spain, Benito Mussolini of Italy and Adolf Hitler of Germany ran openly corporatist economies with the blessing of the pope. And after World War ii, Latin American Catholic dictators like Juan Perón of Argentina and Augusto Pinochet of Chile did the same thing. Now global elites want to use covid-19 and the threat of climate change to restore this tyrannical system.

In his book The Coming of Neo-Feudalism: A Warning to the Global Middle Class, Joel Kotkin, a fellow of urban studies at Chapman University, warns that the government’s alliance with big business will result in the formation of a “cognitively superior ruling class” that will govern the world like a feudal aristocracy, treating people like serfs who are too stupid to be allowed opinions. But even he does not realize the extent to which corporate feudalism will make a comeback.

Revelation 17 reveals that a powerful religious entity will become a guiding force over a great economic powerhouse that intoxicates all nations with its wealth and splendor. Revelation 18:3 says that “the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury” (New King James Version). These verses are talking about the merger of state, corporate and religious power. We see this merger today, and the prince of Wales is helping it happen.

China va produce ninsoare și ploaie artificială pe jumătate din teritoriu. Cum funcționează „însămânțarea norilor”

China anunță că își va dezvolta proiectul de control meteorologic și că are ca obiectiv capacitatea de a putea declanșa ninsoare și ploaie artificială pe jumătate din teritoriul rău, conform Business Insider.

Autoritățile chineze spun că proiectul de „însămânțare a norilor” va crește de cinci ori și va acoperi un teritoriu de peste 5,4 milioane de kilometri pătrați, ceea ce reprezintă 56% din suprafața totală a țării.

Chinezii spun că proiectul va ajuta la atenuarea dezastrelor naturale precum grindina, seceta sau incendiile de pădure.

China a mai folosit această tehnică în 2008, înainte de Jocurile Olimpice pe care le-a găzduit în acel an, susținând că ploile prevăzute de meteorologi în acele zile au fost „declanșate” înainte. În iunie 2016, țara a alocat de 30 de milioane de dolari pentru finanțarea acestui proiect.

Generarea ploii sau ninsorii artificiale reprezintă un principiu meteorologic simplu – aducerea chimicalelor precum iodură de argint sau nitrogen lichid în atmosferă forțează norii să condenseze picăturile de apă care cad, apoi, în funcție de temperatură, sub formă de ploaie sau ninsoare.

Modalitatea chinezilor este de a lansa proiectile încărcate cu aceste minerale înspre cer. În jur de 168 de milioane de dolari au mai fost cheltuite și în 2017 pentru achiziționarea a patru aeronave și „897 de lansatoare de rachete”.

Practica de „însămânțare a norilor” a fost descoperită în Statele Unite în 1946 de un chimist care lucra pentru compania General Electric. China a lansat un program similar în anii 1960.

Report: Moscow Plans Social Credit System

Open Media, a Russian Internet freedom news portal, reported on Tuesday that Moscow is preparing to implement a “social credit” system similar to the one used in China.

Social credit systems monitor residents in various ways and feed huge amounts of data about them into algorithms that evaluate the quality of their citizenship, including their loyalty to the ruling regime. Those flagged as “poor citizens” can find themselves automatically stripped of benefits, barred from employment, or prevented from traveling, usually with little chance of appealing the system’s judgments.

The Moscow Times summarized Open Media’s report, which was based on public documents filed by Moscow municipal agencies:

Moscow City Hall has since 2017 been collecting the gender, age, income level, and relationship to other people signed up to its mos.ru website as part of the internet activity monitoring system called IS STATS.

Open Media reported that Moscow City Hall placed a 280 million ruble ($3.7 million) tender last week to expand the system’s capabilities.

The digital profiles will now include information about Muscovites’ violations, fines, debts, and participation in various events, according to the cited documentation. The data will be compared with information from public Wi-Fi networks and mobile phone operators.

Moscow City Hall will be able to divide the data into groups that include “signs of loyalty,” according to Open Media.

The IT department at Moscow City Hall insisted it would keep the data the system amassed and analyzed anonymous and studied more for trends than punishing or rewarding individuals, which would be a major difference from China’s system. Skeptics doubted those promises of anonymity, with Internet rights activist Stanislav Shakirov bluntly stating that he expects the Moscow social credit system will be “personalized down to every citizen” and its data will probably end up on the black market.

Russian officials previously denied they were interested in building anything like China’s social credit system. Deputy Prime Minister Maxim Akimov said in November 2018 that social credit was a “fairly obvious threat” the Russian government would avoid falling into, even as it began amassing hefty “digital profiles” of every citizen.

“Scoring a person’s political and social behavior, as well as assessing its success or failure — there are currently no such projects,” he insisted.

In a 2019 policy brief on “digital authoritarianism,” the Brookings Institution found Russia to be almost as interested as China in using the Internet to monitor and control its citizens but assessed the Russian state as lacking the electronic infrastructure to impose a full-blown social credit system.

The Russian government strongly believes in having a “sovereign Internet” (i.e. a controlled and censored Internet that enables the government to decide what citizens are allowed to see) but it allows more access to foreign social media sites like Facebook and Twitter than China does, and Brookings found its surveillance systems were less sophisticated and pervasive than China’s. If the city of Moscow is moving in the direction of a social credit system, those judgments may need to be reassessed.

Singapore a luat fața SUA – Este prima țară din lume care introduce verificarea facială în sistemul oficial

Autor: Remus Vlad, RedactorPublicat: 26/09/2020 17:26

recunoastere faciala

Singapore este prima țară din lume care folosește verificarea facială în sistemul național de evidență a populației, pentru a oferi acces atât la serviciile private, cât și la cele guvernamentale, relatează BBC.

Agenția guvernamentală pentru tehnologie spune că va fi „fundamentală” pentru economia digitală a țării.

Sistemul a fost testat într-o bancă și este acum lansat la nivel național. Tehnologia nu numai că identifică o persoană, dar se și asigură că aceasta este cu adevărat prezentă.

“Trebuie să vă asigurați că persoana este cu adevărat prezentă atunci când se autentifică, că nu este o fotografie, un videoclip, o înregistrare reluată sau un deepfake”, a declarat Andrew Bud, fondator și director executiv al iProov, compania din Marea Britanie care furnizează tehnologia.

Tehnologia va fi integrată cu schema de identitate digitală SingPass și permite accesul la serviciile guvernamentale.

“Este pentru prima dată când verificarea feței bazată pe cloud este utilizată pentru a asigura identitatea persoanelor care utilizează un sistem național de identitate digitală”, a spus Bud.

Atât recunoașterea facială, cât și verificarea facială depind de scanarea feței unui subiect și de potrivirea acesteia cu o imagine dintr-o bază de date existentă, pentru a-i stabili identitatea.

Verificarea necesită consimțământul explicit al utilizatorului, iar utilizatorul primește ceva în schimb, cum ar fi accesul la telefon său sau la aplicația bancară.

Prin contrast, tehnologia de recunoaștere a feței ar putea scana fața tuturor celor dintr-o gară și ar avertiza autoritățile dacă un criminal trece prin fața camerei.

Multe guverne folosesc deja verificarea facială, dar puține au luat în considerare atașarea tehnologiei la identitatea națională.

În unele cazuri, acest lucru este urmarea faptului că nu există un act de identitate național. În SUA, de exemplu, majoritatea oamenilor folosesc permisele de conducere eliberate de stat ca principală formă de identificare.

China nu a încercat să asocieze verificarea facială cu sistemul de evidență a populației, dar anul trecut a adoptat reguli care îi obligă pe clienți să-și scaneze fețele atunci când cumpără un nou telefon mobil, astfel încât să poată fi verificați.

Verificarea facială este deja răspândită în aeroporturi și multe departamente guvernamentale o folosesc, inclusiv Ministerul de Interne al Regatului Unit și Serviciul Național de Sănătate și Departamentul de Securitate Internă al SUA.

Supravegherea generală nu mai poate fi împiedicată!!!

Reţeaua globală de supraveghere a cetăţenilor planetei. Revolta europenilor. Şi tot suntem ascultaţi

Cei din Consiliul Europei cer Statelor Membre „să întărească protecţia datelor personale în contextul supravegherii cibernetice exercitate de serviciile de informaţii prin promovarea unui instrument internaţional legal valabil care să ofere măsuri democratice şi eficiente de protecţie în domeniu“, recte sprijinind aplicarea şi extinderea aşa-numitei „Convenţii 108“.

Argumentele pro şi contra

Ca să ştiţi exact contextul în care vorbim, aveţi aici declaraţia responsabililor din Consiliului Europei precum şi situl care descrie ce înseamnă „Convenţia pentru protecţia datelor personale în ce priveşte tratamentul automat al datelor cu caracter personal“ cunoscută drept „Convenţia 108“ din care face parte România.

Totul vine în contextul în care, recent, Curtea Europeană de Justiţie a emis o hotărâre în termenii căreia conchide că mecanismul de protecţie a datelor decis între UE şi SUA „nu oferă un nivel suficient de protecţie pentru datele cu caracter personal transferate din UE către SUA, asta datorită garanţiilor insuficiente privind drepturile omului în contextul accesului la date prin intermediul programelor de supraveghere ale guvernului american“.

În declaraţia responsabililor din Consiliul Europei se spune că decizia justiţiei europene are consecinţe care merg dincolo de transferul de date UE-SUA şi oferă ocazia de a întări cadrul universal al protecţiei datelor. Tratate insuficient de precise, reglementări ascune sub …

Colonialismul comunist al Chinei

Ca unul care studiez profețiile, mă întrebam ce-i va face pe „împărații din răsărit“ să vină în valea lui Moghido. Iată că istorie ne dă răspunsul clar: China va fi implicată masiv în comerțul mondial și în statutul de supraputere.

China is not just a creditor to “some” African countries; it is the single largest creditor to the African continent.
China does not loan money, they build facilities which they own until the mortgage is paid. If the mortgage is not paid then they own it in perpetuity. The politicians in many countries have allowed themselves to be bought into this fiasco, including our own.

“African countries already deeply indebted to China through its Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) face serious economic trouble from the looming recession. Through the BRI, China establishes economically predatory infrastructure projects in developing nations to expand its influence. According to the Center for Global Development (CGD), Niger and Angola are among the African BRI countries likely to encounter future economic difficulties.”

All a part of China’s plan, these nations were never going to be able to pay that debt and now their infrastructure and natural resources are mortgaged and will belong to China when they default. This is stealth colonialism. China is importing many hundreds of thousands of people into Africa to build the infrastructure. These men are very racist against the natives except in the case of satisfying their sexual drive and leaving behind fatherless Afro-Chinese children who face stigmatization while their peasant mothers are financially unable to care for the children and are ridiculed in their poor communities.

Belt and Road: China-Kenya Rail Contract Ruled Illegal

The SGR cargo train rides from the port containers depot in Mombasa, Kenya, to Nairobi, Tuesday, May 30, 2017. Kenya's president Uhuru Kenyatta opened the country's largest infrastructure project since independence, a Chinese-backed railway costing nearly $3.3 billion that eventually will link a large part of East Africa to a …

A Kenyan appellate court has declared a $3.2 billion rail contract between Kenya and the China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) illegal, the South China Morning Post (SCMPreported on Tuesday.

Kenya’s Court of Appeal ruled on Friday that state-owned Kenya Railways had “failed to comply with and violated” the nation’s laws “in the procurement of the SGR [Standard Gauge Railway] project.”

The Law Society of Kenya brought the suit in 2014 arguing that the railway was a public works project that should have been conditional upon a “fair, competitive, and transparent procurement process.” Instead, its attorneysd claimed, the SGR contract was “single-sourced without being put up for tender” with Kenyan taxpayers facing the burden of repaying associated loans. Kenya’s High Court originally dismissed the case. The plaintiffs then appealed this decision, resulting in the appellate court’s ruling on Friday.

According to the report, the appellate court’s ruling leaves many possibilities up in the air. It comes after a large section of the project, roughly two-thirds, was already completed and has been operational. Some observers think that the Kenyan government or CRBC could challenge the appellate court ruling in Kenya’s Supreme Court.

According to the SCMP, Kenya Railways and CRBC have defended their joint contract, claiming the Kenyan government negotiated with the Exim Bank of China for two loans, each estimated at $1.6 billion, to finance the SGR project. China is Kenya’s second-biggest creditor, and the Exim Bank of China is the top recipient of Kenyan interest.

The “contractor negotiated loan” deal described by Kenya Railways and CRBC is an example of corrupt arrangements often seen between China and Kenyan political actors that “make it easy to conspire with the Chinese to push a project into the [Kenyan] government’s spending program even when it has no money for it,” according to Kenyan newspaper Daily Nation.

Kenya’s SGR is part of China’s greater Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) to finance and build infrastructure projects throughout developing nations in Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America. Based on predatory loans, the BRI projects serve China more than the host country, which acquires burdensome debts to Beijing. By forcing nations across multiple continents to become increasingly dependent upon China, the BRI allows Beijing to push the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) sociopolitical agenda on a global scale.

Last week, Communist Party leader Xi Jinping praised Kenya’s controversial railway project at a virtual China-Africa Summit he hosted for African leaders in Beijing. Xi congratulated Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta on the SGR, saying the railway had ensured the “uninterrupted flow of cargo” inland from its starting point at Kenya’s Port of Mombasa. He claimed that Kenya’s SGR had helped “keep trade flowing” in the region despite restrictions placed on freight distribution during the coronavirus pandemic, according to the SCMP.

Xi’s laudatory remarks failed to address the fact that the Kenyan government has been forcing importers to use the SGR in recent months under pressure to pay its debts to China, made even harder by the economic downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Importers have resisted transporting their cargo via the railway, preferring to use less expensive modes of transportation, such as trucks.

As reported by the SCMP, SGR generated $136 million in revenues last year through cargo transport and passenger services. However, this month, Kenya’s parliament revealed that Kenya Railways “had not paid $380 million in management fees to Africa Star Railway [a CRBC subsidiary].” The Chinese Embassy in Nairobi later confirmed the unpaid fees to Africa Star Railway, claiming it “appreciated the efforts that the Kenya government has made to clear the pending payments.” In 2017, Beijing awarded Africa Star Railway a contract to manage the SGR’s cargo and passenger operations, according to the report.

According to the Daily Nation, the SGR contract originally stipulated that Kenya’s Mombasa Port be used as collateral for China’s loan, in a serious threat to Kenyan sovereignty: “As then-Auditor General Edward Ouko said, the government committed Mombasa Port as part of the collateral. So, if the government defaulted on the loan, the port could be taken over,” the newspaper revealed.

China has forced other desperate nations into similar debt traps. In 2017, China seized Sri Lanka’s port after the struggling nation defaulted on its BRI loans.

Germania pune piciorul în prag: Ţările cu datorii îşi vor pierde suveranitatea

Într-o ieşire aspră, ministrul german al finanţelor WolfgangSchäuble a susţinut sancţionarea ţărilor “problemă” din uniuneamonetară, nu cu excluderea lor, ci cu pierderea suveranităţii înfavoarea UE.

Într-un interviu acordată săptămânalului Stern şi comentat deDeutsche Welle şi RFI, şeful finanţelor germane susţine: “O ţară cuprobleme care trebuie ajutată ar trebui să cedeze Uniunii Europene,la schimb, o parte din drepturile sale de suveranitate”. Măsura arfi mai bună şi mai funcţională decât excluderea unor state din zonaeuro, spune ministrul. “Europa nu are cum să reuşească dacă nu sestabileşte clar că un stat membru nu poate fi dat afară din zonaeuro”.

Într-un interviu pentru ZF, ministrul român de externe TeodorBaconschi a susţinut că retragerea unui stat din zona euro ar creadificultăţi majore întregului spaţiu european, de aceea salvareaeurozonei trebuie să fie obiectivul numărul unu al Uniunii.

Deutsche Welle aminteşte că Wolfgang Schäuble a pledat, într-oscrisoare adresată parlamentarilor conservatori, în favoareadeciziilor luate la ultimul summit special al ţărilor zonei europentru salvarea Greciei.

El a admis că planul de salvare a Greciei nu este lipsit deriscuri, susţinând însă că alte variante posibile erau şi mairiscante.

În interviul citat,Schäuble pledează pentrublocarea dreptului la vot al statelor care nu respectă pactul destabilitate şi creştere, o propunere care fusese avansată anultrecut şi de cancelarul Angela Merkel. De altfel, Grecia aexperimentat pe propria-i piele o situaţie asemănătoare. Practic,când a fost lansat primul plan de salvare a Greciei de 110 mld.euro, în vreme ce membrii eurozonei analizau situaţia,reprezentanţii acestei ţări au aşteptat la uşă sfârşituldiscuţiilor fără să fie primiţi înăuntru.

Schäuble pledează pentru adâncirea integrării UE, dar cu regulimult mai dure. “Integrarea trebuie să continue, iar unui stat careare probleme i se va acorda ajutor, dar: “va trebui să renunţe la oparte a suveranităţii sale naţionale în favoarea Uniunii Europene “Această măsură este mai eficientă decât dacă anumite ţări cudatorii, membre ale UE, vor fi eliminate din zona euro, explicăminstrul german de finanţe.
