E.U. to Ratify Paris Accords*

E.U. to Ratify Paris Accords*

Editor Note: Those following along with covert geopolitics know that the Paris Accords are not what they seem at first glance. With the recent addition of the yuan to the SDR basket of currencies, and this latest news of the E.U. ratifying the agreement, it looks as if now we only need to wait for Russia to ratify and that will activate the Global Currency Reset (GCR). According to Benjamin Fulford,

“Russia will wait to ratify the Paris Accord until military issues are resolved and the cabal surrenders.”

This goes along with what Cobra has been saying, as well. His information tells us that the GCR will not happen until The Event and when the cabal is dealt with. We are getting VERY close! See additional links at the end of this article for more information.

“The IMF accepts the gold-backed yuan into the SDR basket on Oct 1, as the FRB ceases sept 30.” It adds: “The Paris agreement which secretly activates a global gold standard is at near 48%, India will ratify Oct 2 (4.5%) so when Russia (7.35%) ratifies it will cross the 55% threshold but holds off until military issues are resolved and the cabal surrenders.”

The European Parliament in Strasbourg, France on Tuesday ratified the Paris Agreement on climate control, paving the way for the 28-nation European Union to do the same later this week.

World powers such as the U.S. and China ratified the deal last month.

China and the U.S. are the world’s top two producers of man-made carbon emissions, accounting for 38% of the world’s total emissions.

India ratified the agreement just last week.

The landmark agreement reached last year in the French capital will go into effect if ratified by at least 55 countries representing 55 per% of the world’s man-made emissions.

This threshold has now been crossed with the European Parliament’s ratification. The E.U.’s combined emissions account for some 12% of the global total.

E.U. President Jean-Claude Juncker said he believed today’s ratification turns climate ambition into climate action.

“The Paris Agreement is the first of its kind and it would not have been possible were it not for the European Union. Today we continued to show leadership and prove that, together, the European Union can deliver,” he said.

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon lauded the ratification today saying he was honored to witness such a “historic moment”.

“We have seen extraordinary action from all corners of the globe to bring this agreement to life this year.

COP21

The Paris agreement on climate change was adopted with no objection by the 196 Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) during the 21st session of the Conference of the Parties (COP21) hosted by France in December last year.

The Paris pact, which sets a target of limiting global warming by 2100 to “well below” 2 degrees Celsius by curbing greenhouse gas emissions, will not be a fully legally binding treaty.

The final Paris accord has agreed that rich nations need to maintain a $100 billion a year funding pledge beyond 2020, and use that figure as a “floor” for further support agreed by 2025.

Confirmed that U.S. Backed Down over Syria after Russian Threatened to Shoot Down U.S. Aircraft*

Confirmed that U.S. Backed Down over Syria after Russian Threatened to Shoot Down U.S. Aircraft*

By Alexander Mercouris

Following yesterday’s Russian warning that Russia stood ready to shoot down US aircraft or missiles attacking Syria, the U.S has confirmed all plans for military action against Syria have been dropped.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest confirmed this speaking to reporters on Thursday 6th October 2016.

“The president has discussed in some details why military action against the Assad regime to try to address the situation in Aleppo is unlikely to accomplish the goals that many envisioned now in terms of reducing the violence there.  It is much more likely to lead to a bunch of unintended consequences that are clearly not in our national interest.”

The U.S. will never admit that it was the Russian warning that deterred it from carrying out air and missile strikes, and it is still pretending that the option of military strikes is still on the table.  In Josh Earnest’s words

“I’m not going to take any options off the table. I am not going to be in a position [we’re] taking options off the table for the commander-in-chief.”

However these are face-saving words. 

Military strikes against Syria would have happened long ago had it not been for the strong opposition of Russia.  The fact the Russian military is now physically present in Syria with advanced surface to air missiles and is warning that it stands ready to shoot U.S. aircraft down if the lives of Russian personnel are put in danger has taken the idea of U.S. military strikes off the table. 

I would add that these warnings would have been given by the Russians to the U.S. in private before they were made public yesterday.

It is because the military option no longer exists that the U.S. has been obliged to return to diplomacy.

I do not expect this to change whoever is elected President in November.

Why Is Rosa Parks’ Former Detroit Home Being Shipped to Germany?*

Why Is Rosa Parks’ Former Detroit Home Being Shipped to Germany?*

The Detroit home where civil rights activist Rosa Parks resided during the late 1950s has been partially dismantled and sent overseas to an art studio based in Germany.

According to The Guardian, Parks’ niece, Rhea McCauley, donated the activist’s old home to Germany-based artist Ryan Mendoza after the city threatened to demolish it. Parks’ relatives had struggled over the years to raise money for the structure’s preservation.

Mendoza, who is American but has lived in Europe for over two decades, will attempt to reconstruct the home at his studio in Berlin’s Wedding district. Afterwards, he hopes to display the home at several art galleries across Europe, highlighting its largely unappreciated existence in the U.S.

“I hope either President Obama or his successor will be sensitive to this issue and catch word of the house that is held hostage across the world,” Mendoza told The Guardian.

“A monument to Rosa Parks’ legacy that was purposely kidnapped in order for America to recognize what it has lost.”

The Rosa Parks Family Foundation, founded by McCauley, purchased the home on South Deacon Street in November 2014 for $500 from the Detroit Land Bank Authority, the Detroit Free Press reports. The activist’s niece had hopes of restoring the old residence and worked to buy it back from the council that placed it on the city’s demolition list in 2010.

“She loved the city, but I don’t think the city loved her very much back,” McCauley told the Detroit Free Press last month. “This house should have been preserved here. But we live in a world where every other project takes precedence.”

 Mendoza stripped the structure’s facade and covered its remnants with what looked like a large white bed sheet. What was left of the house was demolished by ABC Demolition on Monday, Sept. 26.

The Parks project is similar to an earlier work by the Germany-based artist in which he transported a family home from Detroit’s low-income 8 Mile Road area into a permanent exhibit at the Verbeke Foundation in Belgium, The Guardian reports. Mendoza received backlash from a few Detroit residents who complained that the home’s crumbling remains were an eye sore. According to the Detroit Free Press, the structure’s remnants stood for six long months after the facade was stripped off.

Another one of Mendoza’s notable works is one in which he redesigned two abandoned Detroit homes so that light projected through bullet holes at night displayed the names of presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, per The Guardian. But the artist noted he wanted to turn Parks’ old home “into a work of art without violating the building as a document.”

Mendoza argued that maybe he wasn’t the perfect candidate for the project and that “somebody in the Black community should be doing” it. However, he and McCauley only had one of two choices: preserve the home or let it be demolished.

“If a small little lady can fight for justice until the end of her life, what is wrong with the rest of us?” McCauley said.

Parks became the face of the Civil Rights Movement when she refused to give up her bus seat to a white person in December 1955. Her defiance sparked the beginning of the Montgomery bus boycott, which lasted over a year. She fled Alabama and retired to Detroit after receiving death threats well after the bus boycott. She resided in the Motor City until her death on October 4, 2005.

Thirty-five thousand terrorists, including 2,700 natives of Russia and countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), have been killed in Syria, the Interfax news agency reported on October 7, citing Deputy Russian Defense Minister, Anatoly Antonov.

As the RIA Novosti news agency noted, all these terrorists were killed in the period from February 27 to September 1. The Russian official said that all in all, Russian military managed to liberate 586 settlements and 12,360 square kilometers of the country’s territory. Antonov also added that strikes on terrorist groups in Syria were a part of a plan, approved by Russia and the US on February 22.

The representative of the Russian Defense Ministry pointed out that aircraft of the US-led coalition carried out 6-15 airstrikes per day only on facilities of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group.

“I think, any further comments are superfluous,” Antonov concluded.

The Russian Aerospace Forces launched its operation in Syria on September 30, 2015. The Russian combat air power supported ground operations of the Bashar al-Assad’s Army. Russian fighter jets and helicopters are based at the Hmeymim air base in the Syrian province of Latakia.

On March 15, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered to withdraw the main part of the Russian group from Syria, since the task, assigned to the Defense Ministry, has been completed.

Earlier, the State Duma ratified an agreement between Russia and Syria on the termless deployment of a aviation group of the Russian Armed Forces on the Syrian territory.

Iceland Jail Top Bankers For 46 Years, Europe ‘Outraged’*

Iceland Jail Top Bankers For 46 Years, Europe ‘Outraged’*

By Baxter Dmitry

Iceland has found nine top bankers guilty and sentenced them to decades in jail for crimes related to the 2008 economic crash.

On Thursday Iceland’s Supreme Court returned a guilty verdict for all nine defendants in the Kaupthing market manipulation case, after a long running court trial which began in April last year.

Kaupthing was a big international bank headquartered in Reykjavik, Iceland. It expanded internationally for years, but collapsed in 2008 under huge debts, crippling the small nation’s economy.

By demanding that bankers be subject to the same laws as the rest of society, Iceland opted for a very different strategy in the wake of the financial crisis to rest of Europe and the U.S., where banks were fined nominal amounts, and directors and chief executives escaped punishment altogether.

 

While the U.S. and U.K. governments provided bail outs and government stakes for their big banks with tax-payers’ money – essentially giving bankers the green light to continue behaving in the same way – Iceland adopted a different approach, declaring it would let the banks go bust, weed out and punish the criminal element at the top of the banks, and protect the savings of the people.

 

Former director of the bank, Hreiðar Már Sigurðsson, who was found guilty and jailed last year, was also given a six-month extension to his sentence on Thursday.

According to Iceland Monitor, the bankers are found guilty of crimes relating to deceitfully financing share purchases – the bank lent money for the purchase of the shares while using its own shares as collateral for the loans.

They are also found guilty of creating a misleading demand for Kaupthing shares by means of deception and pretence.

 

The Icelandic Approach

These guilty verdicts are just the latest in Iceland’s unprecedented clampdown since the economic crash. Authorities have been pursuing bank bosses, chief executives, civil servants and corporate looters for crimes ranging from insider trading to fraud, money laundering, misleading markets, breach of duties and lying to officials.

Meanwhile the economy that collapsed so spectacularly has rebounded after letting its banks go bust, imposing capital controls and protecting its own citizens rather than the elite bank bosses responsible for the mess.

This determination to hold people to account for actions that caused intense financial misery contrasts strongly with the U.K., the rest of Europe and the U.S. Yes, fines were imposed on the 20 biggest banks for transgressions such as market manipulation, money-laundering and mis-selling mortgages, but these costs fall on shareholders and, by hampering the banks’ ability to lend, they also punish the rest of society.

Meanwhile the guilty senior bankers, thanks to government bail outs, carry on making enormous profits and collecting their obscene bonuses as though nothing happened.

Last year, the International Monetary Fund declared that Iceland had achieved economic recovery “without compromising its welfare model” or unduly punishing its citizens for crimes committed by its bankers.

Iceland is right to jail it’s bankers – and the U.S. and Europe is wrong to merely slap a few wrists and give the green light to future outrages.

Civilians help Syrian Army Drive out Terrorists from Damascus*

For almost five years, the Al-Hamah suburb of Damascus was a war-zone that left thousands of civilians stranded between the Islamist rebels and Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

Tired of war, the Syrian civilians in Al-Hamah conducted a massive demonstration against the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and their Islamist allies, demanding they make peace with the Syrian Arab Army or else face expulsion from the suburb.

Earlier this week, the Free Syrian Army’s leadership’s accepted a peace treaty with the Syrian Arab Army; however, they had no intention of fulfilling their agreed upon obligations, which included their withdrawal from several points in Al-Hamah.

The Syrian Arab Army was now left with no choice but to attack the Islamist rebels and expel them from Al-Hamah.

In a quick four hour operation, the Syrian Armed Forces managed to expel the Islamist rebels and declare the entire Al-Hamah suburb under their control.

Aiding the Syrian Armed Forces in Al-Hamah were several local civilians, who helped drive out the Islamist rebels in their neighborhoods, while also confiscating the latter’s weapons.

Eruption of Silent Volcano Shocks Japan*

Eruption of Silent Volcano  Shocks Japan*

On Saturday, the Meteorological Agency of Japan said that one of the few most active volcanoes in the world and the most active one in Japan erupted.

The ash generated by the eruption from the volcano covered 11,000 meters (7 miles) of the sky.

The Director of the agency’s Volcanology Division, Makoto Saito stated,

“It is extremely rare for an eruption column to exceed 10,000 meters.”

Ichinomiya district of Aso city, located 8 kilometers northeast of the volcano, witnessed an ash fall and the agency warned that Shikoku region will also face probable ash fall too.

Saito commented on the volcano’s active phase and said,

“There is a possibility that a same scale of eruption will occur again.”

In order to alert people nearby, the Meteorological Agency issued its third-highest level of alert that ranged on a five-level. Warning of gas and falling rocks at one of the peaks of the Kumamoto chain was also issued.

The public television of Japan, NHK, ran the footage of orange flames emerging from numerous locations on the mountainous region.

However, there were no houses situated close to the area of the eruption and no injuries or damages have been reported so far, local media reports confirmed.

The time of the volcanic eruption is said to be 1.46 am local time on October 8. According to records, this particular peak has reportedly been inactive since it exploded in January 1980.

Japan Times reported an official stating,

“Mount Aso is in an unstable condition and could erupt again on the same scale.”

The eruption that took place on Friday was of a minor category.

So far, officials have said that there isn’t enough evidence to relate the eruption to the earthquake that hit Kumamoto and Oita in April and killed 49 people.

Japan, that sits along the Pacific “Ring of Fire,” is said to witness most of the world’s earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. The region accounts for about 20 percent of the world’s earthquakes of magnitude 6 or higher also experiences several volcanoes.

On September 27, 2014, Japan came across the most fatal eruption in 90 years which occurred in Mt Ontake. The eruption was an unpredicted one and caused the death of at least 63 people, most of them hikers.

Currently, a dozen volcanic warnings are in place.
