In a major victory for American national sovereignty and self-government, President Donald Trump on Monday fulfilled his campaign pledge to withdraw the U.S. government from the “free trade” regime known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Despite strong support from Obama, most congressional Republicans, and the establishment wing of both parties, the secretly negotiated “trade” scheme was unconstitutional, dangerous, and extraordinarily unpopular across the political spectrum. But with a simple executive action by the new president, the globalist establishment's cherished dream for what lawmakers described as a “Pacific Union”-style super-government went up in smoke. Globalists were furious, while patriots celebrated.
Venezuela’s Marxist dictator Nicolas Maduro fired Nelson Merentes, head of the central bank. Maduro refuses to place the blame for Venezuela's collapse on his own socialist policies.
In a bizarre spectacle that took many low-level establishment-minded analysts by surprise, brutal Communist Chinese dictator Xi Jinping was crowned the king of globalism this week by embattled Western globalists at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos. Blasting “excessive pursuit of profits,” Xi offered a “vigorous defense” of globalism and pseudo-“free trade” schemes in his keynote speech at the event. He also suggested that his brutal regime was ready to step in to a leadership role in the emerging new world order as the United States changes direction. However, as the globalist alliance with savage communist tyranny comes out of the closet, Western voters are likely to become even more hostile to the extreme agenda of their would-be overlords.
The United Nations “education” and “cultural” organization, as well as its controversial Communist Party boss Irina Bokova, are facing growing pressure over corruption, abuse, mismanagement, and other scandals. Several major donor governments including the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, and Israel have recently been up in arms about the outfit, formally known as UNESCO. Meanwhile, insiders at the UN agency tell The New American that an external independent audit is needed to bring everything to light. And in the United States, where federal law already prohibits U.S. tax funding to the scandal-plagued UN “education” body, calls for a complete American withdrawal are growing louder.
A mass-murdering communist dictator, some billionaire crony capitalists, mega-bankers, and a gaggle of out-of-touch globalist politicians walk into a summit. Unfortunately, there is no punch line, and it is not a joke — it is actually a description of the upcoming World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, the controversial annual gathering of globalists and establishment types.
But at least the mask is finally coming off. With the globalist establishment in the United States on defense amid a historic uprising illustrated by Donald Trump's victory on an anti-globalist, America-first campaign platform, globalism central is now shifting to Communist Party-ruled China. And the establishment is not shy about telling the world.
After witnessing disarmed French civilians cowering before a few Islamists rampaging through Paris with illegal guns, top officials in the Czech Republic are determined to ensure that similar tragedies do not strike in their own country.
A prominent Islamic cleric has said that most of his fellow clerics forbid their followers from celebrating New Year’s. But this didn’t stop some Muslims from marking and marring the occasion with acts of mayhem.
On his way out of office, Robert Fico, the rotating head of the European Union Council, called on EU leaders to stop letting citizens vote on important issues that could threaten the increasingly controversial super-state. Citing recent anti-establishment votes in Britain and Italy, the EU Council boss blasted the “adventures” of letting citizens decide the fate of their own nations in referenda. The EU boss drew a quick rebuke from advocates of self-government.
German Chancellor Merkel's top priority even in the face of bloody terrorism is pushing an open door migration policy, and she's facing harsh criticism and waning poll numbers.
