German Press: "That Was No Presidential Speech; That Was A Declaration Of War"

Following yesterday's openly confrontational, deliberately protectionist presidential address by president Trump, which in various circles has been dubbed the "American carnage" speech for obvious reasons, some of Obama's closest foreign friends are scrambling to find a role in a world that has drastically changed in less than 24 hours. One of them is the foreign leader whom Obama spoke to last before vacating the White House, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who vowed on Saturday to seek compromises on issues like trade and military spending with Trump, adding she would work on preserving the important relationship between Europe and the United States.

"He made his convictions clear in his inauguration speech," Merkel said in remarks broadcast live, a day after Trump vowed to put 'America first'.

President Trump was elected to bring jobs back to America. He promised he would work with manufacturers to make sure jobs stayed in or came back to the United States.

He has held meetings with executives from these companies and there have been preliminary talks of a big investment.

It is more than just talk now.

Treasury Secretary Mnuchin: Trump IRS Will Collect 100'$ of Million$$$ In Tax Revenue From Tax Evaders

The Senate hearings on Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are very revealing. Mnuchin, who previously worked for Goldman Sachs, says he's concerned and "particularly surprised that the IRS headcount has gone down quite dramatically, almost 30% over the last number of years" amd vows to remedy that problem. In the second video, Munchin says he wants private IRS debt collectors to be more effective. "We can collect tens of millions, or hundreds of millions of dollars, for the American public...particularly in an environment where we are looking for money for so many programs, this to me, seems like a very obvious thing to do." He continues "the majority of Americans voluntarily file their tax returns honestly. But we are all aware that there is tax fraud, and there is tax evasion, and we need to be diligent.

'You CAN'T leave!' EU threatens France and Italy with MAMMOTH bill if they quit the euro

BRUSSELS has threatened Italy with an almost certainly unpayable bill if the country's citizens take the democratic decision to quit the troubled euro.

EU chiefs said countries looking to axe the unpopular single currency will have to pay back all their debts in one go before they can leave, making such a move massively unaffordable.

The pronouncement comes after prominent politicians in a number of member states including Italy, France, Greece and the Netherlands have all made noises about ditching the euro.

Sidestepping the Military Leviathan: Make Money, Not War

Is Washington really going to start a trade war with China, or is it just huffing and puffing for position? I don’t know. Mr. Trump has inexplicably failed to brief me. A point worth bearing in mind:

The United States cannot compete commercially with a developed Asia, or China.

America has nowhere to go. It is a fully developed economy that cannot grow rapidly if it grows at all. America is also a country of only medium size with a white and Asian population of a bit more than two hundred million who do all the brain work. It has a decaying system of education, declining living standards, and an economy crippled by huge military expenditures.

By contrast China has a billion Han Chinese, intelligent government, a great deal of room to grow and high rates of doing so. The combined land mass, population, and economic potential of Asia are staggering. In differing degrees, Asian nations are growing.

Trump Energy Policy: President-Elect Considering Controversial Privatization Of Oil And Gas On Native American Reservations

Water,Air,Sunshine and Natural Resources on the Tribal People's land or on the American people's land should not be privatized for solely private gain.
They are a Public Utility. The Indians and the American people should get a cut and the private interest's should get a cut and the government should get a cut. Alaskans used to get a check every year on oil extracted in Alaska. We need to do that nationwide. Privatizing water and natural resources is a bad thing. Private interests should never control public water supplies. I want my cut!

Opponents of the Dakota Access Pipeline route in North Dakota may have won a victory this week, but Native Americans may have an even bigger fight on their hands if advisors to President-elect Donald Trump get their way.

Though American Indian reservations comprise just 2 percent of the U.S. land mass, they may contain as much as 20 percent of the nation’s oil, gas and coal reserves worth an estimated $1.5 trillion.

Pepe Escobar: Here's How The Trump Presidency Will Play Out

The Trump era starts now – with geopolitics and geoeconomics set for a series of imminent, unpredictable cliffhangers. I have argued that Trump’s foreign policy guru Henry Kissinger’s strategy to deal with the formidable Eurasia integration trio – Russia, China and Iran – is a remixed Divide and Rule; seduce Russia away from its strategic partnership with China, while keep harassing the weakest link, Iran. In fact that’s how it’s already playing out – as in the outbursts of selected members of Trump’s cabinet during their US Senate hearings. Factions of US Think Tankland, referring to Nixon’s China policy, which was designed by Kissinger, are also excited with the possibilities of containment regarding at least one of those powers “potentially arrayed against America”.

Trump’s Inaugural Speech – Promises, Hopes and Opportunities

Could 21st century capitalism dump imperialism? Maybe.
Just hours ago Donald Trump was finally sworn in as the President of the United States. Considering all the threats hanging over this event, this is good news because at least for the time being, the Neocons have lost their control over the Executive Branch and Trump is now finally in a position to take action.

The other good news is Trump’s inauguration speech which included this historical promise “We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example for everyone to follow”. Could that really mean that the USA has given up its role of World Hegemon? The mere fact of asking the question is already an immensely positive development as nobody would have asked it had Hillary Clinton been elected.

Oxfam’s assertion is that world economies are mismanaged in favor of the wealthy, which is largely true, however, the report failed to hit the mark on this serious issue by not acknowledging the greatest problem with the world’s economy, which is the global central banking model of privately owned debt-based fiat currencies.

The current banking model is the product of hundreds of years of planned development, structuring, manipulation, force and trickery which began in earnest with Mayer Amschel Rothschild, who first established banking and finance houses in Germany in the 18th century.

Trump Takes Over 'Riskiest' America Since World War II

While most are well aware that President Obama is leaving office having almost doubled the national debt during his 'reign', the more concerning fact is that this debt-splosion came with the weakest economic recovery in US history. What this means simply is that Obama is handing Trump the 'riskiest' America since World War II as debt-to-GDP is the highest since Truman.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is how Trump handles this economic nightmare he has inherited from Obama which will, to large extent, define his presidency.

The Geopolitics Of 2017 In 4 Maps

International relations and geopolitics are not synonymous... at least, not the way we understand them at Geopolitical Futures. “International relations” is a descriptive phrase that encompasses all the ways countries behave toward one another. “Geopolitics” is the supposition that all international relationships are based on the interaction between geography and power.

Our brand of geopolitics takes this a step further and asserts that a deep understanding of geography and power enables you to do two things. First, it helps you comprehend the forces that will shape international politics and how they will do so. Second, it allows you to identify what is important and what isn’t.

Theresa May won’t last & Donald Trump’s a ‘would-be dictator,’ says George Soros

British Prime Minister Theresa May won’t last long in office and US President-elect Donald Trump is little more than a “would-be dictator,” according to billionaire George Soros.
Speaking on Thursday at the Davos Economic Forum ahead of Trump’s inauguration, the investor and philanthropist told the audience of businesspeople and journalists that May would likely not survive the Brexit process, which he predicted, once fulfilled, could see the UK simply rejoin again anyway.

“In my opinion it is unlikely that Prime Minister May is actually going to remain in power. Already she has a very divided cabinet, a very small majority in Parliament. And I think she will not last,” Soros said.

China To Pour $3 Billion in Iran’s Refining Capacity

China will invest US$3 billion in the upgrade of Iran’s oil refining facilities, Iranian media reported, with the bulk of the investment going into the Abadan refinery.

According to Deputy Oil Minister Abbas Kazemi, China has already “opened the financing” for the refinery’s upgrade. Iran’s oil and gas infrastructure has suffered the results of years of neglect because of insufficient maintenance funds during the sanction years as well as access to new technology and equipment.

Last week China’s statistical bureau reported that the country’s crude oil imports had increased to 64.4 percent of domestic demand and this is expected to continue, with imports rising by a total 17 percent in the period 2015-2020, with domestic output falling by 7 percent in the period, according to the National Development and Reform Commission.

One of the most striking – though unreported – aspects of Donald Trump’s interview with The London Times and Bild-Zeitung is what Trump had to say about the state of the US military and of the US defence budget.

It is hardly a secret that the US has completely lost control of its defence spending, and as a businessman conscious of the importance of controlling costs, Trump has homed in on this. His immediate target has been the troubled F-35 fighter bomber programme – about which he has tweeted repeatedly – whose costs have spiralled out of control, and whose capabilities are questioned by many experts.

They have artificially stimulated so many different asset bubbles, whether it’s debt, which is epic, or stock markets, many of which are at historic highs. If we have a crash, it will be in the second half of 2017.

Alibaba'a Jack Ma Drops a Redpill in Davos: The U.S. Wasted $14 Trillion on Wars Over the Past 30 Years

And there it is, the unvarnished, raw, truth about how everything went wrong for middle class America.

Since the Vietnam war, more than 45 years ago, the US has embarked on a neocon strategy of war in an effort to build a global empire. The result of that strategy has left American infrastructure second rate, its school system in shambles, and its healthcare system a complete and utter joke.

Just imagine what America could've done with $14t of investable dollars, instead of waging wars.

Aside from the wars, America spends more than 50% of its discretionary budget on the military, per annum, 16% of its overall budget.

Storm clouds gather as hurricane Trump prepares to hit White House

Donald Trump has delivered a huge boost to Britain by promising a trade deal within weeks of taking office to help make Brexit a ‘great thing’.

The President-elect spoke in glowing terms of his ‘love’ for the UK and revealed he was inviting Theresa May to visit him ‘right after’ he gets into the White House.

He said that he wants a trade agreement between the two countries secured ‘very quickly’ – making a mockery of President Obama’s threat that, if the country voted for Brexit, we would be at the ‘back of the queue’.

The comments follow weeks of overtures to the Trump camp by Number Ten, including a visit by Mrs May’s joint chiefs of staff – and give her a huge boost ahead of her major Brexit speech tomorrow.
