Davos 2019: As 1500 Private Jests Descend On The Small Swiss Resort, Climate Change Is High On The World Economic Forum Agenda


A private jet stands ready to take its payload of a few VIPs off round the world.

Standing atop a massive pile of money, the elitist looks down angrily at the poor man who merely asks for a pay raise.

Every year leading figures from business, politics and entertainment gather at the World Economic Forum to discuss the world’s most pressing problems. This year’s theme is “Globalization 4.0: Shaping a Global Architecture in the Age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution”.

The summit itself is a meeting of the global experts and influencers from politics to business, culture and the media. During the week these elite will meet and discuss a range of topics, including the economy, climate change and international relations.

The WEF’s, a bunch of paternalistic neo-liberals like to pretend they are safeguarding the interests of the planet when really all they are interested in is looking after the interests of corporate business and the global elite. Thus their Global Risk Report for 2019 revealed that environmental crises, such as failures to tackle climate change, “are among the likeliest and highest-impact risk that the world faces over the next decade”.

Founder and chief executive of the WEF Klaus Schwab, said it was “humanity’s most existential challenge” and that it “requires urgent global action”. He wrote: “Never has science been clearer in its concern about the risks of climate change and the stress this places on our oceans and other vital ecosystems, including tropical forests and freshwater sources.

“Yet our response to melting glaciers is glacial. While solutions increasingly exist, especially in the energy sector, there is as yet no movement on global action commensurate to the challenge.” Perhaps he thinks we have not noticed that all the solutions the elites amd their pet ‘experts’ have so far proposed involve the working and middle classes sacrificing our lifestyles and pating punitive ‘green’ taxes which are used to fund ‘green’ projects that boost corporate profits and shovel our tax money into the coffers of businesses and the landowners who have put wind farms and solar farms on their property in order to scoop up the subsidies for ‘sustainable’ power that the ‘green’ taxes and levies on our fuel bills fund.

When he says “our response to melting glaciers is glacial,” there is no intended irony in his words, he cannot be unaware that an anticipated 1,500 private jets will descend on Davos and nearby airports in Switzerland this week as the international financial and political elite gathers to talk about how to deal with global climate challenges by making us punters reduce our carbon footprint.

That number is an increase on the estimated 1,300 aircraft movements seen at last year’s forum, despite climate change registering as the top risk factor identified for the global economy then as well. In a survey of World Economic Forum (WEF) movers and shakers last week all placed the need to reduce carbon emissions highly among their priorities, yet none travelled by train and few by commercial airline.

Sir David Attenborough, a lead speaker this year, has already stated that climate is the issue of our time. The veteran broadcaster, 92, used his acceptance speech to tell business leaders and governments to come up with “practical solutions”. Speaking at the beginning of the forum on Monday, the Blue Planet and Dynasties narrator told the crowd he is “quite literally from another age” and warned of “man-made disaster of global scale” that lies ahead.

Were Attenborough have serious about his pleas for the environment, he ought to have used his platform to condemn events like the WEF, the United Nations Climate Conferences, G7 and G20 economic summits and so on. Industry group Air Charter Service calculated the private jet flights over the week, as delegates fly in to hear the likes of Attenborough speak at an event boasting a basic entry ticket price of U.S.$60,000 – per person. Around 3,000 participants are expected for the 2019 edition of the WEF.

Andy Christie, Private Jets Director at ACS, told the Guardian how the numbers are determined: “Davos doesn’t have its own airfield and, whilst we have several clients who fly into the town by helicopter, the four main airfields that private jet users attending the forum use are Zürich, Dübendorf, St. Gallen-Altenrhein and St. Moritz.

Working with WingX, we looked at private jet activity at those airports over the six days of each WEF week since 2013 – from one day before the event to one day after. Last year was the busiest year for private jets so far, showing an 11% increase on 2017, with more than 1,300 aircraft movements. If we see a similar increase this year, we could be looking at almost 1,500 aircraft movements over the six days.

Countries with the most arrivals and departures over the past five years at Davos are Germany, France, the UK, U.S., Russia, and UAE, respectively.”

Demand for private jets far outstrips other events that also loom large on the private aviation calendar, such as the Super Bowl or Champions’ League final, according to Mr. Christie.
“We have had bookings from as far as our operations in Hong Kong, India and the US ?- no other event has the same global appeal,” he said in a statement.

No wonder, those 3000 paying punters will be accompanied by their entourages, persdonal assistants, PR consultants, technical advisers and other people employed solely to make their bosses feel important. And the trend is towards even more expensive, larger private jets such as the Gulfstream GV and Bombardier’s Global Express. This may be in part due the long distances travelled, but according to aircraft industry sources is mainly due to business people not wanting to be outdone by rivals.

The European Union May Be on the Verge of Regime Collapse

posted by Ed Butt

Europe disappearing up it own hole (image source)

Europe won the Cold War and looked set to become the global superpower. So where did it all go wrong?

Not long after the Berlin Wall fell a quarter of a century ago, the Soviet Union collapsed, the United States squandered its peace dividend in an attempt to maintain global dominance, and Europe quietly became more prosperous, more integrated, and more of a player in international affairs. Between 1989 and 2014, the European Union (EU) practically doubled its membership and catapulted into third place in population behind China and India. It currently boasts the world’s largest economy and also heads the list of global trading powers. In 2012, the EU won the Nobel Peace Prize for transforming Europe “from a continent of war to a continent of peace.”

In the competition for “world’s true superpower,” China loses points for still having so many impoverished peasants in its rural hinterlands and a corrupt, illiberal bureaucracy in its cities; the United States, for its crumbling infrastructure and a hypertrophied military-industrial complex that threatens to bankrupt the economy. As the only equitably prosperous, politically sound, and rule-of-law-respecting superpower, Europe comes out on top, even if — or perhaps because — it doesn’t have the military muscle to play global policeman.

And yet, for all this success, the European project is currently teetering on the edge of failure. Growth is anemic at best and socio-economic inequality is on the rise. The countries of Eastern and Central Europe, even relatively successful Poland, have failed to bridge the income gap with the richer half of the continent. And the highly indebted periphery is in revolt.

Global Warming Nutters To Protest In Record Cold Temperatures

You have to smile at the science worshippers and climate change Warmageddonists, they are so detached from reality that if the ice caps were advancing through Europe and North America they’s claim it was caused by global warming. They just don’t do real world evidence.

This story is a prime example of how these deluded OCD bell – ends have raised congnitive dissonance to an art form:

After a record – breaking cold summer across much of the United States, in mid – Spepember snow lies on the ground in seven US states as advocates of inventing scare stories as an excuse to impose punitive taxes on the lower classes (the unwashed idiots who wave placards and chant, “tax the rich, tax the rich,” haven’t noticed the leaders of their movement are all billionaires or multi-millionaires) gather to demand a United Nations response to “global warming” (“Tax the poor in rich countries, tax the poor in rich countries;)

“Global Warming” (tax the poor) Activists Plan March Amid Record Cold Temperatures.
from Patriot Rising

Later this month, activists are planning a march in New York City for “global warming awareness,” even though the northern U.S. is reeling from record cold temperatures.

Called the “largest climate march in history” by organizers, the “People’s Climate March” will occur on Sept. 21st, a few days before the United Nations will attempt to draft a “global warming” treaty on the same level as the controversial Kyoto Protocol.

“The Secretary-General has asked leaders to announce significant and substantial initiatives to help move the world toward a path that will limit global warming,” states a U.N. press release.

Yet, in contrast to that rhetoric, ice cold temperatures are shattering records across the U.S. and Antarctica’s sea ice is expanding at a record pace.

Typically, when the irony of protesting against runaway warming while the nation shivers in unusually low temperatures is pointed out to the Warmageddonists they reaction can be summed up as saying, “You shouldn’t take any notice of the weather, if the science says its hot outside then get your kit off and slather on the factor 25.”

The words mad and scientist have always belonged together.

Hundreds of protesters arrested in Brussels as leaders debate ‘maintaining citizen’s trust’

brussels protest

Strangely you did not see anything about this in print of broadcast news yesterday or today. One would think the loss of another human right, the right to peaceful protest, to the Euronazis in Brussels would warrant a mention here and there.

Ah, but then the protestors were objecting to one of the sacred cows of the Global Totalitarian Government lobby, the Trans Atlantic Trade And Investment Partnership, you know the one, it will grant corporations like Pfizer immunity from national laws and prevent our democratically elected governments defending our national interests.

Some of us have been trying to warn people. Some of you have been supporting this Nazi shit by joining in that UKIP are Racists meme that attempts to win support for the Eurofascists by trying to smear the only British political party committed to opposing global Naziism.

Read this and see what I mean:

from Euracity

240 people were arrested on Thursday (15 May) around the European Business Summit venue in Brussels during non-violent protests organised by trade unions and citizens’ groups.

The protestors had gathered to denounce the budgetary austerity policies in Europe, and the ongoing talks on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the EU and the USA, which they say is being negotiated “in total opacity”.

‘We don’t want more business in Europe’

“Today multinationals are inviting political decision makers like the European trade commissioner Karel De Gucht and they are discussing putting more business in Europe,” said Felipe Van Keirsblick, the secretary general of the Belgian trade union for employees, the CNE-CNG.

“We don’t want more business in Europe, we want more democracy in Europe and that’s what people want, not what multinationals want,” Van Keirsblick said.

Do You Take Photographs? You’re Probably A Criminal

I’ve been going on a lot about the Trans – Atlantic Trade Partnership (TTIP) and how it is part of a plan to extend the takeover of the USA by Corporate Nazis to the rest of the world.

One of the main planks of the TTIP is the establishment of a framework for enforcing US patent and copyright law around the world. “how is that bad, surely writers, musicians and such deserve to earn royalties and inventors deserve to be paid for use of their innovations don’t they? You might well ask.

I agree, and as a writer I know I deserve far more that the occasional pittance I receive from people who use my work. But the TTIP and its Pacific twin the TPP are not about writers and artists, or inventors and innovators, they are about governments, global corporations and bankers.

What am I talking about. Well things like Nestle trying to obtain patent on fennel seeds which have been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years. Or this even more bizarre patent application which has, it seems, been granted by courts in the USA.

Taking a photo against a white background? Amazon owns the patent on that

from Blacklisted News

Today a photography blog unearthed another strange development in America’s ongoing patent train wreck: Amazon was recently awarded the intellectual rights to taking pictures of people in front of seamless white backgrounds.

Critics of the deal from the tech and photography worlds are split on what they see as the bigger affront: the gullibility of the US Patent and Trade Office, or the genius of Amazon’s patent lawyers.

The patent, which you can read here, was originally filed in 2011, and has the fittingly sparse title, “Studio Arrangement.” It takes five pages of dense text to explain the photographic innovation at issue. There is a diagram that, TechDirt points out, “pretty much looks like every photo studio in the history of photo studios.”

Posh Boy Can’t Explain What He Doesn’t Understand

pfizer lies
selling fascism as capitalism (h/t dividicke.com )

Conservative globalists are screaming that David Cameron must explain why the takeover of British based pharmaceutical corporation Astra Zeneca by American asset strippers and patent thieves Pfizer is a good thing and will benefit the British economy.

There is no chance of Dave succeeding of course, even someone who was being paid shitloads of money by Pfizer could not make a decent case for this takeover. Even Oskar Pistorius’ lawyer could not excuse the track record of Pfizer for breaking pledges given to national governments once they have succeeded in acquiring a takeover target.

Here’s what one Tory globalist was saying (and if you are wondering about Labour’s position on the issue, sorry the party of millionaires, lawyers and elitists have been too busy planning how they will tell us all what to eat and drink and where we can go and what we can do.

Benedict Brogan in The Daily Telegraph reported:

… he would look “very very hard” at the effects of the Pfizer/AstraZ deal, at a stroke joining the queue of otherwise sensible – and some not-so-sensible – politicians who have decided that making noises against it is a smart move. There were plenty of them in the Commons earlier who harangued a calmly effective Vince Cable when he defended the principle of non-interference.

This is not to defend Pfizer. There is nothing to suggest that they are a charity interested in advancing the cause of UK plc. If anything, their record suggests they pump for cash and get out. But let the share price be their judge. If they want to be seen as a company that engages in a form of tax arbitrage by seeking a less onerous jurisdiction to base themselves in, fine. Again, they aren’t a charity. Come to think of that, neither is AstraZeneca, the product itself of a foreign merger in 1999. As George Osborne knows to his cost, UK ownership is no protection against global competition: he got to know the company when it eliminated thousands of jobs in his constituency. More:

Now defending capitalism is one thing, but what the globalists and world view theorists overlook is that what we now have is as far from capitalism as was feudalism with its system of lief and leige.

Pfizer along with the rest of Big Pharma, Big Oil, Big Ag, Big Biotech, Big Food and Big Finance are not capitalist enterprises, they are corporatists. Their businesses are not founded on asset backed capital but on debt and fiat money. And as Benito Mussolini said (and he’d know) corporatism and fascism are the same thing.

No wonder the political parties that support Euronaziism are in favour of it.

Y’know one day I will come across some twat with a degree in economics who actually understands how business works … and I won’t know whether to shit or go blind.

APRIL FOOLS review 2014

Things are so dire this year that the April Fool jokes in the news papers are uniformly lame.

The Times’ spoof that the Duke of Saxony, a German tarot fooldescended from the James 1 and the Stuart dynasty, sees the prospect of Scottish independence as a chance to claim the throne of Scotland. The clue, however, lies in quotes attributed to an academic Amadan Giblean, whose name is a Gaelic translation of April Fool.

The Guardian takes its usual internationalist line, expressing hopes that Scotland will align itself with mainland Europe by switching to driving on the right, relabeling the road signs so that the M8 motorway becomes the S8 and constructing huge, spiralling “direction reversal” systems to avoid accidents when cross-border motorists become confused by the lane switch.

First Minister Alex Salmond’s head would replace that of the Queen on a pound coin named the “Salmond Sterling”, according to the Daily Telegraph’s “Flora Poli.” Really? I would think Mel Gibson’s head would be more appropriate after “freedom”.

The Daily Mail says it’s snapped a ministerial aide accidentally revealing the design for a “Scot-free Union Jack”, minus the blue of the saltire. It quotes “Avril McTickle” complaining that there’s “no constitutional need to change the flag”.

Meanwhile, away from Scotland, The Currant Bun’s Avril Fuel (you gotta spoonfeed Sun readers) reports that the Queen has approved fracking in the grounds of Buckingham Palace in a bid to reduce “rocketing” palace utility bills of £3.1m.

And the Daily Express says British farmer Ian Hatchett’s hens are laying square eggs at his “Flair Loop” farm, in Suffolk. That one is worth a groan.

One story I thought was a prank concerned a convict who has become a grandfather at 27 after the daughter he fathered when aged fourteen gave birth herself, aged only thirteen. Why did I think this true story was a joke? Well I haven’t been watching enough Jeremy Kyle obviously.

The United Nation Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) had the lamest April Fools joke this year:

Under the headline Climate Scientists Have The Courage To Tell It Like It Is the Daily Telegraph’s Geoffrey Lean tells it like it isn’t by misrepresenting as courageous, the cowardice of climate scientists in telling it exactly like the Rothchild banking cartel ordered them to.

The IPCC report care-in-the-community case Lean is waxing lyrical about is the 2,000 pages of Apocalyptic catastrophes for the next 1,000 years;
including fire and brimstone classics such as ….

Biblical scale tsunami’s rolling up the Thames, 150°C heatwaves causing fire-storms every second tuesday in London, Global famine giving rise to Mad Max style cannibal tribes throughout the UK, and finally …

Climate change derived Genetic Mutation bringing on the “end of times” Zombie Apocalypse !!

(Well OK, I might have made up a few of those)

With a concluding chapter along the lines of: repent repent ye sinners for the end days are upon us, The Great Whore Babylon riding on a seven headed beast is come among us !!! Prepare ye for The Rapture .. buy carbon credit offsets from your local Goldman Sachs broker.

Now what sort of numpty would fall for that tosh? Oh sorry Dave, Gideon, Nick, Ed …
