Could Corrupt EU-US ‘Free Trade’ Deal Be Extended To Israel?

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership has encountered stiff opposition in Europe. Picture credit: Jakob Huber, flickr

There are many reasons to oppose the planned “>Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), not least because references to ‘free’ in the text of leaked drafts does not refer to freedom in any conventional sense but to giving global corporations the ability to operate outside the jurisdiction of sovereign governments and override national law.

TTIP isdesigned to make corportate capitalism the only permissible system in both the US and the European Union. It is being negotiated in a secretive and anti-democratic fashion; not even the elected members of national governments will be allowed to know what is in it before they are required to vote on it. (And as when the European Union’s integration framework was voted down, you can bet if our lawmakers, in the public interest, vote down this step towards global tyranny the bureaucratic Nazi shits who are promoting it will say, “Wrong answer – vote again.”

The groundwork for TTIP and its equally evil twin, the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) has been laid by an unholy alliance of banks and the manufacturers of cigarettes, cars and chemicals. These corporate pirates have even had representatives involved in the negotiations which are supposed to be a government level but from which elected members of governments have been excluded.

The latest information to leak out of the negotistions suggests a way is being sought to extended the treaty to include Israel.

Cecilia Malmström, the EU’s trade commissioner, stated earlier this year that “other countries close to us could link into the agreement” after the contents of TTIP are finalized.

Israel enjoys an extremely close trading relationship with the EU. A deal approved by the European Parliament in 2012 paves the way for Israel to be integrated into the Union’s single market for goods and services.

The idea that Israel would be eligible to join TTIP is being mulled over by the cognoscenti in both Brussels and Washington.

My Dear Old Mum Had Better Not Get Any Silly Ideas Like This

My mother (86) loves her little home in Morecame and over they years me, my sister and bother have done everything we can to make sure she remains happily and independently living in it (I did have to warn her I’d put her over my knee and spank her when she refused a home help after two bad falls while cleaning).

We want her to be happy and content. There are limits on filial affection however. So I will be warning her she’d better not get any silly ideas like this:

After news of her defiance hit the internet, her house because a symbol of struggle against the growth of corporate dominance, even inspiring the film “Up,” in which Pixar modeled its house after Macefield’s home.

In 2008, Edith died and left the home to Barry Martin, the construction chief at an adjacent building site who had befriended her and helped her through her final days. The future of the house was unknown, although Martin said he would like to turn it into a memorial of some kind.

These lobbyists, who have no official status but plenty of money available for ‘hospitality’ (graft, payola, slush, bribery, incentivizing, call it what you will.) to help them enlist the support of corrupt officials – mainly politicians and civil servants mot more and more often these days, prominent scientists, ‘special advisers’ and former politicians who are happy to sell their reputation.

This web page and its links to many posts around the internet has mainly focused on the Trans Atlantic Trade And Investment Treaty (TTIP), an allegedly benign deal to promote free trade between the USA and EU, and its equally evil twin the Trans Pacific Partnership, which proposes the same for the Pacific Trading Area. In reality what both these treaties do is further the global hegemony that US Corporate business and the US Government have been collaborating to achieve since the fall of the Soviet Union. Read much more about these deals and how they will hit small business, individual freedoms and curtail the right of sovereign nations to make their own fair trade, consumer protection, labour relations and civil rights law.elsewhere on the page.

This story is about another nasty deal corporate business has been cooking up with Washington and The United Nations and with the full complicity of mainstream media, the Yog Sothoth of trade deals in fact.

Governments of nations around the world have for two years been secretly negotiating a little-known mega trade deal that poses a threat to internet freedoms and will serve only corporate interests, analysts have warned, citing a U.S. proposal leaked by a whistleblower.

The Trade in Services Agreement (TISA), currently being negotiated in conditions of the highest secrecy between a 50-country committee of World Trade Organization (WTO) members. Negotiations have been in progress for nearly two years, but have been so secretive that it was unheard of in the public domain until the news was published by Wikileaks in June 2014, making it even more shadowy than the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

The given reason for the public being kept in the dark about this deal is that ordinary people will not understand it, in fact there is nothing complicated about the fact that internet freedom will disappear as governments take control of all online activity. The freedoms citizens in democracies have enjoyed will simply disappear, free speech, free (as in unrestricted by law if you can afford to buy a newspaper or rent an internet connection will be massively impacted if we the people this undemocractic treaty to be pushed through by the people who have for decades now been advocating global totalitarian government.

“What these closed-door negotiations do is cement in place rules for global governance—rules that affect a whole host of issues that aren’t about trade at all, such as privacy, financial stability and much more,” Melinda St. Louis, International Campaigns Director for Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch, told Common Dreams:

“There is extreme industry influence in this closed-door trade negotiation process. On the U.S. side there are more than 500 corporate advisers who have access to these texts while the public and many elected officials are locked out.” (our emphasis)

Despite the leaks little is known about the content of the TISA treaty and what reached the public domain has done so through leaks (see above). one of the most disconcerting clauses revealed in the leaked draft shows that negotiators aim to further deregulate global financial markets.

Among subsequent leaks is information that shows negotiators are aiming to curtail internet freedoms.

TISA’s clauses on “E-Commerce, Technology Transfer, Cross-border Data Flows and Net Neutrality,” proposed by the U.S. Trade Representative in April, was published on 17 December, 2014 by Associated Whistleblowing Press, a non-profit organization with bases in Iceland and Spain.

According to an analysis of the text from watchdog organization Public Citizen:

With respect to privacy protections, the leaked text reveals that the U.S. negotiators are pushing for new corporate rights for unrestricted cross-border data flows and prohibitions on requirements to hold and process data locally, thus removing governments’ ability to ensure that private and sensitive personal data is stored and processed only in jurisdictions that ensure privacy.

Such measures are considered critical to ensuring that medical, financial and other data provided protection by U.S. law are not made public when sent offshore for processing and storage, with no legal recourse for affected individuals. Numerous U.S. organizations are pushing for improvements in such policies, which are considerably stronger in other countries. If the proposed TISA terms on free data movement were to become binding on the United States, such needed progress would be foreclosed.

Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch, declared: “Given the raging domestic debate over net neutrality,(mainly a USA problem, the Obama administration has been sucking up to corporate money, the EU has done much better at preserving internet freedom – editor) the growing demands for more data privacy and the constantly changing technology, a pact negotiated in secret that is not subject to changes absent consensus of all signatories seems like a very bad place to be setting U.S. Internet governance policies.”

The Real Significance Of The Jimmy Savile Case

I’ve always liked Anna Raccooon blog, it has always, since starting to look in about five years ago I have found it consistently intelligent, well written, unafraid of controversy and prepared to take a libertarian stance (for the benefit of Prof. Want – War, our resident academic village idiot, and other politically illiterate lefties, libertarian does not mean extreme right wing.

Forget that lefties in the UK have labelled UKIP as a rebranded BNP, the Labour left are really only part a global fascist movement dedicated to totalitarian rule by the elite.

Recently I went off Anna’s blog. Suzanne (the eponymous Ms. Raccoon) took a rather different view to mine on the Jimmy Savile case. No problem with that, she has spent years as a lawyer working in the Court Of Protection, so her opinion on the lack of reliable evidence on Savile and other cases of historic sex abuse and other aspects of law are from a legal perspective more valid than mine.

Jimmy Savile on Jim’ll Fiddle With It – the body language says it all

Unfortunately this reasonable line has attracted a type of commenter who is sure there is nothing underhand going on, that there is no corporate push to gain control of states and their insitutions, and that cases such as Jimmy Savile’s paedophile activities are a lot of fuss about nothing. Their attitude is a kind of argument from authority (the voice of reason?): “Any intelligent person would understand there are no great conspiracies (they haven’t heard of TTIP)and our governments would
never lie to us.

Now Anna is somewhat responsible for that, she doesn’t like ‘conspiracy theorist’ phrases such as New World Order (although the phrase has been used by David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, Pappy Bush and many others in calling for the establishment of a global government controlled by the elite) mainstream media, Illuminati or Scientific Dictatorship. Again I don’t have a problem with Anna, her blog, her rules. What does piss me off is the frequency of comments sneering at ‘conspiracy theorists’ (who are for the most part really just people questioning the establishment), but I do get impatient with people whose only reason for commenting is to undermine others and dismiss valid opinions.

Back to the Savile case, which while Anna Raccoon makes valid points about unreliability of witness evidence on events which occurred many years ago, they smug, authority worshipping people who dismiss our concerns are truly naive when saying “its just a lot of fuss about nothing, only Daily Mail readers are taken in by it,” are the ones who really miss the point.

People are concerned not about the sex crimes of men like Savile and Cyril Smith who are now dead, or Stuart Hall and Rolf Harris although we accept their crimes were heinous and made worse by abuse of their status and the victims deserve justice – to be believed at last if nothing else.

Our real concern is and has been for decades among those who had our ear to the ground was that things which should have been investigated were covered up to protect celebrities and establishment figures. Unlike the smug, pompous bastards in Anna’s comment threads who are sure there is nothing going on and it’s just Daily Mail readers getting their knickers in a twist, some of us knew that suggestions about Jimmy Savile’s unsavoury sex drive were more than rumour, genial, jolly Stuart Hall was a notorious sex pest, bluff, straight talking Cyril Smith and Greville Janner with his magic tricks liked fiddling with little boys.

It is things like the news story linked below which concern us, not because we want retribution against dead men and geriatrics, but because despite who smug twats in comment threads who’re sure there is nothing they do not know many tell you, the culture of cover up is still very active and will continue to be until it is broken either by the democratic process or campaigns of civil disobedience.

Police admit they were told Jimmy Savile was a paedophile a DECADE before he was exposed

Protesters Gather Around Europe To Demonstrate Against Undemocratic Secret Agreement With USA

Protests against the secretive Trans Atlantic Trade And Investment Partnership (TTIP) will take place today in cities all over Europe. The deal, the terms of which will give Corporate businesses the power to sue governments and overturn any laws made by the UK Parliament (or any elected elected assembly in nations that sign the treaty) which the corporate lawyers see as obstructing their ability to steal taxpayers’ money make a return their investment, has been largely negotiated in conditions ofr such secrecy that even our Members of Parliament and other elected representatives in European Unions and the USA have not been allowed to know what its clauses contain.

That which we do know of has only reached the public domain thanks to leaks and whistleblowing.

Today’s demonstrations will be held in fifteen locations across the UK including London, Bristol, Edinburgh and Bognor Regis to voice opposition to the deal. Those against it say it could lead to the privatisation of the NHS (see below) and the removal of food safety regulations to allow the sale of produce from GM crops and chlorine washed chicken to be sold in European shops without any legal requirement for labelling to inform consumers of what they are buying.

The European Commission (Euronazis) has done its best to suppress opposition to TTIP particularly in the UK by ruling out the involvement of public services in the deal. However, the UK Trade Minister Lord Livingston has admitted to the Huffington Post that talks about the NHS were still on the table. This is due to those enemies of democracy, The Labour Party having taken large chunks of the NHS outside the public sector by setting up independent health trusts and making General (family doctor) Practices into private businesses.

Another major concern for believers in democracy is the provisions in the treaty that would enable foreign investors – for example American firms investing in the NHS Trusts privatised by Blair’s Labour government – to sue a host government if they think their profits are affected by a change in policy.

The campaign against TTIP has been actively opposed by the usual suspects, the Occupy movement, the Unions and worker rights organisations and fringe left wing groups but has also aligned these groups with nationalist political movements that have seen an upsurge in popularity in the past few years as European nations surrendered more sovereign powers to unelected bureaucrats in Brussels while in the USA there has been an erosion of powers held by legislatures of the fifty states as more laws have centralized power in Washington D.C.

The controversial ACTA (Counter-terrorism) legislation, which was booted out of the European Parliament by MEPs after millions campaigned against it, is also said to have ben shoe-horned into the agreement at the insistence of the Obama administration. Plans to compel internet providers to monitor customers’ online activity and other breaches of an individual’s privacy and hand over data to security agencies, one of the core elements of ACTA, is rumoured to be included in TTIP.

These sneaky tactics to get authoritarian legislation onto the statute books by the back door when it has been thrown out by democratically elected lawmaking bodies is something Brussels has a track record for. The unpopular European Constitution, which would have been a massive step towards the creation of a single European superstate, was repackaged as ‘The Lisbon Treaty’ after convincing ‘No’ votes in the French and Dutch referendums in 2005. Two years later, when Ireland, the only European nation constitutionally bound to hold a referendum on any treaty affecting sovereign powers, voted down the Lisbon Treaty, the bureaucratic dictators said, “Wrong, vote again.”

And to give the Irish a clue as to what they could expect if they got it wrong again, the European Central Bank (ECB ) engineered the collapse of the Irish economy in the months before the second vote.

With Members Of The European Parliament making more noise that previously and the managers of the European Union under the closer scrutiny than previously (a European Commission candidate already rejected for conflicts of interest), campaigners hope they can repeat the success of ACTA and get TTIP kicked into touch as well.

Have you heard of TTIP? No?
Then you have some reading to do. TTIP (the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership) a so called trade pact between the USA and Europe, which is being negotiated in strictest secrecy, would hand global corporations the power to sue governments and overturn laws (such as consumer protection laws) they feel are obstructing their ability to make profits.

A new People’s Movement (Ireland) pamphlet explains how the EU-US trade and investment treaty threatens democracy, would attack workers’ rights, erode social standards and environmental regulations, dilute food safety rules, undermine regulations on the use of toxic chemicals, rubbish digital privacy laws, and strangle developing economies.

Needless to say all political leaders in nations involved and all major political parties are fully supportive of it. Individual elected representatives and associations of small businesses and employers are waking up to it and even mainstream media are starting to understand it would prevent them printing anything certain corporate interests did not like no matter how much proof existed that the story is true.

The Perils Of Centralized Power

savile thatcher
Centralized power – the worst of all possible worlds

For quite some time now, since I gave up trying to raise a smile most days because the world is now so insane it is impossible to parody or satirize it, a theme of this blog has been the dishonesty, corruption and culture of cover up that runs through government and the public sector.

It is not just this country either. Today’s first story, another chapter of the Paedophiles In High Places sage, come from the USA, a country whose rent-boy President, you may remember, actually appointed Kevin Jennings, a man who made a career out of campaigning for legalisation of sex with infants and equal rights for kiddie fiddlers, as a senior manager in the education department.

A Man Of Many Perversions” – Federal Cybersecurity Head Convicted Of Child Porn Charges

It doesn’t matter whether political or corporate, highly centralized power in any forms must be resisted wherever it rears its authoritarian head. Corporatism is fascism, Benito Mussolini said.

In this, the worst of all possible worlds, to paraphrase Dr. Pangloss such an unholy and undemocratic alliance has become reality as we have stood by and allowed the manipulators to engineer the union of corporate and political power in what we erroniously continue to call ‘the free world’ over recent decades. The inevitable result is that the combined forces of oligarchy begin to rapaciously plunder and ravish the citizenry with zero accountability. This is a fair description of Europe, The United States and other developed nations in 2014.

The problem with centralized power is that lack of accountibility which facilitates the culture of cover up (sic)and thus encourages sociopaths (for obvious reasons) gravitate toward, and greatly covet, positions of power.

Power is the most addictive drug known of course, and even lowly jobs in the public sector offer enough opportunity to fuck with peoples’ lives to attract neophyte sociopaths.

Once embedded in such positions, they are then able to act upon their desires with general immunity, and if they are caught, are often left in positions of power by others who at that point “own them” via blackmail.

This of course is nothing new, it is how the game of power politics and economics has been played since it was called the Game Of Thrones, the earliest civilisations. It is also why decentralization of power is the natural evolution we as a species must embrace in order to build a better world. And yet we see in Europe a push for greater integration and more surrender of sovereign power to Brussels my member states, we see in the USA more centralization of power on The White House and the increasingly Imperial President and around the world, through agencies like the United Nations, NAFTA, NATO and the G20 we see a push for global government.

And all the time the perverts who have insinuated themselves into the bureaucratic system that serves the power elite are getting on with corrupting innocence and destroying the values that hold society together. how do we know?

Well setting aside the Jimmy Savile affair and other celebrity scandals in which cover ups of wrongdoing protected criminals for decades and putting on th back burner the grooming scandals in Rotherham, Bradford, Newcastle, Oxford and London we only need to take a less than forensic look at world news.

Enter Timothy DeFoggi, the recently convicted former cybersecurity director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, who received several awards for his government “service” over the years. This self-proclaimed man of “many perversions,” frequented child porn sites where he paedophiles and those with an interest in adult – child sex could “exchange private messages with other members expressing interest in raping, beating and murdering infants and toddlers.”

Nice people.

from Wired.com

As the acting cybersecurity chief of a federal agency, Timothy DeFoggi should have been well versed in the digital footprints users leave behind online when they visit web sites and download images.

But DeFoggi—convicted today in Nebraska on three child porn charges including conspiracy to solicit and distribute child porn—must have believed his use of the Tor anonymizing network shielded him from federal investigators.

But DeFoggi’s conviction is perhaps more surprising than others owing to the fact that he worked at one time as the acting cybersecurity director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. DeFoggi worked for the department from 2008 until January this year. A department official told Business Insider that DeFoggi worked in the office of the assistant secretary for administration as lead IT specialist but a government budget document for the department from this year(.pdf) identifies a Tim DeFoggi as head of OS IT security operations, reporting to the department’s chief information security officer.

Although anyone could use the sites, registered users like DeFoggi—who was known online under the user names “fuckchrist” and “PTasseater”—could set up profile pages with an avatar, often child porn images, and personal information and upload files. The site archived more than 100 videos and more than 17,000 child porn and child erotica images, many of them depicting infants and toddlers being sexually abused by adults.

Now it would be easy to get the idea that there are paedophiles everywhere but this blog has never been interested in spreading fear and panic. There aren’t, it is still a relatively rare deviation. That so many of them have ended up in public life, in the Churches and the education system is due to the reasons set out in the opening paragraphs, mainly that centralization of power protects them and bureaucratic organisations have a collective instinct, a kind of hive mentality, that causes individuals to close ranks and protect the organisation.

As that great journalist Bernard Levin once said, “The least amount of power always leads to the greatest desire to abuse it.

Is Europe Waking Up To The Threat Of Globalism Posed by Secret Trade Treaties

Sevran

Wikipedia describes Sevran as a commune in the northeastern suburbs of Paris, about 16 km (10 miles) from the city centre. A nondescript sort of place you might think and pictures like the one above bear out that impression. But in the near future Sevran could play an important role in the shaping of history and like another place few people have heard of which, like Speenhamland, change the direction if the developed world (The Speenhamland poor relief system raised awareness of the urgent ned for social reform in newly industrialised Britain).

One of the dirty little secrets of mainstream consensus politics is that while our leaders blether about democracy and “yoomin rights” they are quietly selling us out to the elitists whose agenda leads to a totalitarian world government.

The Daily Stirrer has reported on the secret negotiations now in progress in which, as clauses of benign sounding multinational agreements like the Trans Pacific Partnership and the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TATP) by which Nazi puppets like Barack Obama, David Cameron and Angela Merkel and dupes like Ed Miliband and Francoise Hollande will betray the people they were elected to serve by surrendering national sovereignty to Corporate Bosses and Bankers. It is any wonder the political establishments and the academic creeps who advise them have been keeping silent about these treaties (which are about anything but free trade – just take a look at the plans of the unelected world government to control the internet and abolish free speech by making publication of views that dissent from the official line a criminal offence.

Wannabe Weltfuhrer Obama gave the game away with a typically petulant and adolescsent outburst in a meeting with the Malaysian leader in which the Rent Boy President condemned those questioning the treaties as conspiracy theorists:

At his joint press conference with Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, Obama addressed concerns that intellectual property provisions in the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) will lead to “higher costs of medical supplies.” His response was that people who raise concerns about TPP intellectual property provisions and access to medicines have a “lack of knowledge” about what is happening in (secret) negotiations, and are therefore prone to “rumors” and “conspiracy theories.”

Obama is reported to have elaborated on that by saying:

If you take an issue like drugs, for example, the United States does extraordinary work in research and development, and providing medical breakthroughs that save a lot of lives around the world. Those companies that make those investments in that research oftentimes want a return, and so there are all kinds of issues around intellectual property and patents, and so forth.”

Obama’s comments could almost be considered an argument in favor of greater transparency, though that was obviously not his intent because leaked texts of the draft agreements for TPP and TATP show that among many corporate and business friendly, people hostile issues concerning patents and intellectual property are proposals to allow corporations to overule laws passed by the elected governments of sovereign nations if it is felt those laws obstruct the achievement of business goals.

So when The Rent Boy President talks of making medicines avaiable in poor counties, what he means is allowing Big Pharma to sue those who manufacture and sell generic versions of drugs in third world nations in order to protect patents and make available to the world’s poor only the most expensive versions of drugs and madicines. The full transcript of the joint Razak-Obama press conference, posted by Inside U.S. Trade, is available here.

We know from experience that the provisions found in the leaked texts are the same types of provisions that have been shown to raise drug prices in other countries that have implemented trade agreements with the United States. Last year’s joint report by the World Trade Organization, World Health Organization, and World Intellectual Property Organization describes the impact of TRIPS Plus intellectual property provisions dictated by trade agreements in Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Colombia, and Jordan. Extensive analyses of the most recently leaked TPP intellectual property text by civil society and academics are available here.

It is also worth noting that the provisions Obama boasts so proudly of will not only allow but assist Big Pharma and Big Ag to obtain patents on plants that have been evolving in the natural world, thus making it possible for corporate lawyers to sue herbalists and purveyors of traditional remedies such as the medicinal herb Fennel (recently the subject of a patent application by Nestle) which has been used by healers for thousands of years and is still an important medicine in poor areas.

Those are just small examples of the shitiness that is contained in the TPP and TATP agreements.

Fortunately for democracy, in Sevran resistance has already begun. Since April 11 the city has been a self-declared area free from TTIP, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. It is up to the rest of us to follow their lead.

A resolution introduced by the anarchistic group Sevran Solidaire et Citoyen has been adopted by a large majority of Sevran’s Council. The city is petitioning the French government to halt negotiations concerning the creation of a free trade zone between America and Europe.

In Sevran they have understood that the treaty “is not so much about free competition and lack of barriers as a threat against the European democratic model and the French way of life: the dismantling of all social and environmental protections, salary structures and regulations preventing price dumping, anti – monopoly laws, in fact the French state will be subject to attack by multinational corporations in law courts and arbitrations tribunals.”

This may paint a grim picture of America’s last shot at establishing a global hegemony, but concern is spreading around Europe in spite of the fact that mainstream European media (controlled by the same dark forces that control US media) has been deafeningly silent on the topic. With European elections imminent the Federal European Superstate camp, facing humiliation by Eurosceptic national parties don’t want to talk about such a divisive issue as their attempt to revive Naziism by dressing it in touchy – feely, caring, sharing mawkish sentiment (“oh but fascism so nice will help the poor” – well maybe, but it doesn’t do much good for the “useless eaters” of Hitler’s political philosophy.)

The way in which Brussels has been trying to present the treaty is typical of a Europe that lacks a political heart; an elitist club whose idea of democracy is to regulate every aspect of life, even a zucchini’s length, or the proper radius for a banana but to disregards the diverse needs of humanity.

Call me a Conspiracy Theorist if you like, Sidi Obama. I’m with the citoyens opposing Corporate Fascism, Go Sevran!.

Privatization of Water as an Owned Commodity Rather Than a Universal Human Right

water privatisation argentina
What water privatisation has mean in Argentina

Not so long ago, towards the end of last year, I used the words of John Lennon to provide a perspective on the psychopathic views expressed by the CEO of one of the world’s leading food processing companies. Lennon said, “Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it”

He spoke the truth of course and what’s worse, when he died in 1981 things were a lot less insane that they are now.

I used that quote in a short blog post highlighting a statement made by the boss of Nestle who was expressing the view that water cannot be owned by everything and must be privatised so greedy, fascistic corporations like the one he runs can profit from it. (See the blog post with video)

The question of when water becomes property is one that nobody has yet attempted to answer. The US Government has already taken to jailing people for collecting in barrels rainwater that falls on the rooves of their home and outbuilding, for building ponds on their land to collect rainfall and for allowing farm animals to drink public property from streams and lakes.

We did warn of what was on the way, everything the increasingly tyrannical administration of The Emperor Obama are doing in violation of the US Constitution and The Geneva Convention was detailed in the policy document released by the United Nations under the title Agenda 21 which promises the abolition of private property. Well Obama may be leading the race to fascism, but we and our EU partners are being dragged that way too.

It will be interesting to see how our infallible, omnipotent leaders plan to seek restitution from the Sun, when our star’s rays cause rainclouds, or government assets of surface water to evaporate, thus destroying valuable resources the government planned to license to corporate water merchants when the vapour had condensed enough to fall to earth. They are still working on that one, meanwhile the idea that water is not a naturally occurring thing but an economic asset is taking hold.
