Soros Details Germany’s Newfound Responsibilities in Ukraine

Although Germany is the owner of Europe’s largest economy and highest population, it has long exhibited a general reluctance to take the leadership reins of the European Union project. There are many valid historical reasons behind this reluctance, particularly the buildup of German power that directly (or perhaps indirectly) precipitated the onset of two world wars. However, in light of the recent conflict roiling Ukraine, many powerful voices in the international media are arguing that Germany must accept the role of union unifier — or Europe could face dire consequences.

Among the commentators calling for a stronger and more assertive Germany is George Soros, the billionaire philanthropist, chairman of Soros Fund Management, and creator and chairman of the worldwide Open Society Foundations. Soros recognizes that Ukraine is ideologically and geographically trapped between two powerful international actors, the European Union and Russia. The country is in the midst of a fledgling experiment with true representative democracy, and in its fragile state it cannot afford to alienate either actor. In this complex situation, Germany can reassert itself as a decision-maker in Europe while simultaneously encouraging cooperation between Russia and Western Europe.

In order to sustain the viability of its new government, Ukraine desperately needs an injection of capital. Germany is by far the wealthiest country in Europe, and is the main state currently funding the debts of countries like Italy and Greece in southern Europe. This gives it tremendous influence over banks and lenders like the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund — by using this influence to trigger investment in Ukraine, Germany can position the EU as an effective counterweight against Russian meddling and aggression in Ukraine. The EU, for all of its impressive accomplishments, has a very difficult time generating cohesive responses to international events, and Germany’s leadership may be just what the bloc needs to present a unified front to the rest of the continent.

Unfortunately, investing in Ukraine is only half of the battle. George Soros also notes that Germany needs to project its international diplomatic power in order to convince Russia to act as a partner in Ukraine’s governmental renaissance. Germany is essentially the only country in Europe that has the global clout to force Russia to the table for a open and honest meeting of heads of state. A cold war replay benefits no one, but until Russia and Western Europe engage in a meaningful and healthy dialogue, tension on either side of the former Iron Curtain will not abate.

European investment in Eastern Europe helped the region emerge from the specter of failed communist growth strategies and become an active participant in the global economy. Today, Ukraine is in desperate need of a similar stimulus package, and only Germany can marshal the necessary resources to make that fantasy a reality. The Ukrainian situation is an excellent test of Western Europe’s true passion for democratic systems of government, and the European Union’s response will depend largely on how prepared Germany is to take a leadership role in the international community again.

Making Money And Saving Money At The Same Time

Underhanded financial dealings are really just a house of glass, or a house of cards–either way, it doesn’t take much to knock down this pseudo-wealth. Think of it this way: if you pay one credit card off with another credit card, it can appear everything you bought was acquired for free. But then the second credit card requires a payoff, predicating the need for a third, fourth, fifth, and six credit card; and eventually you have to either pay the debt, or face the possibility of losing anything you purchased on credit. This is ridiculous enough in small-time social circles, but when underhanded activity of this type is going on at the highest echelons of power, it can spell worldwide recession; and it has. 2008’s financial collapse occurred because persons in financial authority made bad investments predicated on logic of the type involved in the previous credit-card illustration, only in this case the poorly made investments concerned sub-prime loans. These loans through novation were used to surrogate actual money.

A novation in finance is like the transitive property in Algebra. If A equals B, and B equals C, then A equals C. That only applies should the quantities actually equal each other. With novation, this is usually the case–except with sub-prime loans given out via Freddy Mac and Fannie Mae. Basically, people without any money or way of acquiring it were given massive loans they couldn’t pay back, and eventually the house of cards imploded. Had some whistleblowers been available to help alert organizations like the SEC that such activity was taking place, it’s likely it could have been prevented.

This is why the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was passed in 2010. This Congressional act gives whistleblowers employment safety and incentives to do the right thing. But it doesn’t guarantee anonymity. For that there’s Labaton Sucharow, a legal agency who has Jordan A. Thomas leading a team of professional SEC Whistleblower attorneys to ensure justice is done. Thomas pioneered the Dodd-Frank reform legislation while working at the SEC, and since he’s at Labaton Sucharow now, clients can be guaranteed of the finest possible representation. Initial consultations are entirely free of charge, and anonymity may be maintained–though Sucharow strongly encourages potential clients to reveal themselves to potential attorneys; client-attorney privilege protects all confidentiality considerations. Finally, Labaton Sucharow can maximize incentive returns while fighting the case on behalf of a client who remains perpetually anonymous.

Human Rights Foundation Founder Thor Halvorssen Believes Socialism Is Wrong But He Donated Money To The Sanders Campaign

Thor Halvorssen gets a bad taste in his mouth when he hears the word, socialism. And he should. Halvorssen’s birth country, Venezuela, is a pitiful version of socialism. There’s not much more anyone can say about Venezuela except that the country has the largest deposits of crude oil in the world. Thor lived a nightmare during his early years, and he doesn’t want the United States to fall into the same trap that has kept his countrymen in poverty for decades.

 

Thor recently expressed his opinions about socialism and the primary election in a Fox News interview. Even though Halvorssen is against socialism, he has contributed to the Bernie Sanders campaign. He explained his choice by simply saying Hillary Clinton’s track record is so tainted with missteps that he couldn’t support her. Thor also said that Sanders form of socialism is not the same as the socialism that American’s have learned to hate through the years. Sanders call his form of socialism, “Democratic Socialism.”

 

Democratic socialism, according to Thor Halvorssen, is a milder, and much more aspirational ideology. Sanders is not saying that he wants the government to take over certain industries, but he does want the government to be more generous to workers, and he wants to give them more power. Sanders main objective is to break up the big banks, and he wants to stop the influence that money brings to the political arena. Sanders also wants the government to police businesses more closely, so American jobs and money stay in the United States.

 

Halvorssen is on board with all of those changes. He believes Sanders can work with both Parties to get things done. After all, Bernie isn’t really a Democrat. He’s an independent that has been working with the Democrats and the Republicans for years. But it is an uphill battle for Sanders, according to Thor Halvorssen. The Democratic establishment has its own agenda and Bernie isn’t part of that exclusive club. But the people see the difference in the candidates. Perhaps Sanders will pull a Democratic socialist rabbit out of his hat and get elected.

Bizarre Charges Emerge Against San Fran’s Brazen D.A.

San Francisco District Attorney, George Gascon was well known, during his time as chief of police, to have fraternized with the cops whom he now denounces. As police chief Mr. Gascon has also been well known to have been a bigot and a racist, entirely untroubled by the lack of ethnic diversity within his department. His alcohol induced rants against ethnic minorities is well known to all whom have served under him, a thing often observed by the myriad union leaders he enjoyed rabble rousing with during late nights on the town.

This, in a nutshell, is the narrative that Gary Delagnes, ex president of the Police Officers Union would have the denizens of San Francisco believe. Ironically, Delagnes comments only came about due to the questioning he received from a investigative panel created by none other than Mr. Gascon himself to look into the aforementioned “racial discrimination” taking place in the police department. But how much of Mr. Delagnes story really stands up to scrutiny?

During his twenty five year tenure on the force Mr. Delagnes was well known to have had a predilection for verbal jousting and heated debate with his associates. This is shown by Delagnes recounting of a dinner party event both he and Mr. Gascon attended. Mr. Delagnes states that Mr. Gascon was deep into his bottle and that he was speaking with great animation about minorities, he was, Delagnes alleges, endlessly complaining about racial minorities. This apparently reached such bombastic levels that a African american who was attending came up to plead that Gascon stop for the sake of his family. There is only one problem with this allegation, is it hasn’t been factually substantiated by anyone else, thus far. Indeed, Alex Bastian, the district attorney spokesmen even publicly stated that what, “Mr. Delagnes lacks in credibility he makes up for in imagination.” Not all of the facts are yet in but what can be said with certainty is that Mr. Delagnes has a great deal of convincing yet to do.
