Competition is a sin, wh’d you think said that? Stalin? Chairman Mao? Karl Marx?
Wrong, it was businessman and the world’s first billionaire John D. Rockefeller. Hang on Little Nicky, isn’t capitalism all about competition? You might well ask.
Well yeah, but you see Rockefeller was never a capitalist; nor are Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, the Rothschild dynasty, George Soros or any of the Bilderberg gang. They’re Corporatists and as Benito Mussolini said, corporatism is fascism.
Rockefellers maxim has been a rule of conduct for large corporations for well over a hundred years and it seems will soon govern how you receive your internet signal and how much you pay for it.
Comcast, the largest mass media and communications transnational corporation in the world, announced it will absorb Time Warner, the worlds second largest media and entertainment conglomerate.
The friendly merger will combine the America’s top two cable providers into a colossus that could reshape the U.S. pay TV and broadband industry if it clears regulatory hurdles, reports Reuters. It will also have a knock on effect for European networks and other non – US users because most of us access data from their servers or route our connections through their routers at times.
And lets face it, such hurdles as there are can be swept aside like matchwood by the global banks and corporations that already have arsemongers like the rent boy President Barack Obama, suck up artists like Cameron and clueless goons like Hollande, as well as the third world crooks and pimps who run the UN and other international bureaucracies in their pockets.
Now we start to see what that anti – freedom, sovereignty crushing carve up the Trans Pacific Partnership was really about (remember the TPP would give megacorporations with the morals of sewer rats power of veto over laws made by elected parliaments) and why the EU are so desperately keen to abolish independent member states and drag us all into a Federal European Superstate run by unelected bureaucrats in Brussels.
Don’t say I haven’t warned you.

In view of the above merger, which has obviously been known about for some time even though it has not made mainstream media, Russia Today carried an interesting report:
“Angela Merkel and Francois Hollande will review plans to build up a trustworthy data protection network in Europe. The challenge is to avoid data passing through the US after revelations of mass NSA spying in Germany and France.
Merkel has been one of the biggest supporters of greater data protection in Europe since the revelations that the US tapped her phone emerged in a Der Spiegel news report in October, based on information leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.
Earlier, France learned from reports in Le Monde that the NSA has also been recording dozens of millions of French phone calls, including those of the French authorities. According to the report, in just one month between December 10, 2012 and January 8, 2013, the NSA recorded a total of 70.3 million French phone calls.
Meanwhile, according to the Snowden revelations, the German Chancellors mobile phone has been on an NSA target list since 2002 and was codenamed GE Chancellor Merkel. The monitoring operation was allegedly still in force even a few weeks before US President Barack Obama’s visit to Berlin in June 2013.
Washington has denied it monitored Merkels personal phone, insisting that its surveillance practices are focused on threats to national security, namely terrorism. Merkel, who grew up in East Germany, where phone tapping was common practice, compared the NSAs spying to that of the Stasi secret police in the former German Democratic Republic, and accused the US of a grave breach of trust.
According to polls, the Germans have lost confidence in the US as a trustworthy partner, and a majority of Germans consider Edward Snowden a hero. It’s believed that his revelations have hit Berlin particularly hard since Germany is not a member of the so-called Five Eyes intelligence alliance which includes NSA-equivalent agencies in the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, exchanging intelligence with each other on a regular basis.”
