China piles pressure on Trump by vowing to UPHOLD the Paris climate change agreement as premier urges ‘others’ to follow suit and EU leader tells US president not to ‘change the (political) climate for the worse’| Daily Mail Online: This news is amazing because it is all about looting the US. That is, to protect us from pretend heat, they intend to levy a gigantic tax on the citizens of the US, bigger than all other countries taxes. China, in particular, is very eager to cripple the US economy further. The EU is already attacking US citizens demanding we pay 50%+ the costs of defending themselves. Trump is stopping all these looting expeditions. Aside from this news, there is news about a new Russia/Saudi Arabia alliance, the NYT is slowly going bankrupt and Uber car service continues to lose nearly a billion a year but claims it is getting better and is losing only $700 million this last quarter!
It was the first time that Rosneft boss Igor Sechin and Saudi Aramco chief Amin Nasser had held a formal, scheduled meeting – going beyond the numerous times they had simply encountered each other at oil events around the world.
Putin is going around the planet making deals. The EU is freaking out because he is making deals inside the EU. The Bilderberg gang has worked tirelessly to isolate and hoped to bankrupt Russia but has failed and now they are all going bankrupt, one after the other. Instead of seeing the obvious, that they are cutting off their own noses to spite Putin’s face, they continue to self-destruct.
Their conversation also broke new ground, according to two sources familiar with the talks in the Saudi city of Dhahran last week who said the CEOs discussed possible ways of cooperating in Asia, such as Indonesia and India, as well as in other markets.
“It is a new ‘axis of love’,” one senior Gulf official said of the relationship.
Kissy-kissy! And…Trump did a big diplomatic move there, too. Obama bowed and scrapped for the Saudi royals who treated him like he was their personal butler. It showed! I complained about this back then. Russia tried wooing Trump but Trump was forced to be anti-Putin after being savaged by our corrupt political class both Democrats and Republicans who belong to the Bilderberg gang…literally, not metaphorically.
Trump wishes to be friends with Putin! But the EU is pushing for WWIII instead. Good luck with that. Is France Shifting towards Moscow? French Media Hail Macron’s Moves Away From US Anti-Russian Policies.
Macron had to be a big boy so he attacked Putin over irrelevant issues so he wouldn’t look like he wants to be nice to Putin and Putin stood there and shrugged his shoulders and then continued his diplomacy. The EU clown show thinks that when they throw toys out of the pram, they are being ‘leaders’. I find this endlessly amusing.
Now onto fake media in the US: New York Times eliminates its public editor – POLITICO
That’s the direction the Times is going in — letting the public serve as the public editor, a position created at the Times in the wake of the Jayson Blair plagiarism scandal in 2003.
That ‘editor’ was supposed to provide criticism to keep the NYT from reporting fake news. HAHAHA. Didn’t work. They continue to print fake news nonstop and today, the fake news levels have reached a critical stage: the NYT has gone insane.
“[T]oday, our followers on social media and our readers across the Internet have come together to collectively serve as a modern watchdog, more vigilant and forceful than one person could ever be.
I remember the online riot when I was kicked out of the NYT forums years ago. They once had this wonderful system where one could launch a forum topic and then run it on and on, and my ‘pages’ were highly popular and then 9/11 happened and within three months, the NYT killed their forums entirely, wiping them out.
I called the NYT and tried to talk to them about all this and they refused. Naturally! They hate hearing from readers. Now, comments are allowed very rarely, are cunningly concealed from view, hard to read and heavily censored so only people approved by the staff are allowed comments, that is, it is nearly 100% ‘liberal’ and all of them are screaming about how Russia is the USSR and we are being spied on by Russian agents and should repeat McCarthy’s witch hunts.
Our responsibility is to empower all of those watchdogs, and to listen to them, rather than to channel their voice through a single office,” Sulzberger said in the memo. “We are dramatically expanding our commenting platform. Currently, we open only 10 percent of our articles to reader comments. Soon, we will open up most of our articles to reader comments. This expansion, made possible by a collaboration with Google, marks a sea change in our ability to serve our readers, to hear from them, and to respond to them.”
WTF? Way back 10 years ago, they had comments on all articles. Then they decided to cut it to the bone. Now, they have to be with Google to do this? How weird. It is as if we don’t have millions of people online who remember the recent past.
When they lied about things, their response when given proof of something being an outright lie, was to lie even more and then scream ‘shut up’. I doubt this is changing.
Businesses that are bad or fake are all over the place such as bitcoins, for example. Here is a fake company that shouldn’t exist except some rich people are funding it hoping to drive out legitimate businesses by underselling them: Uber Limits Loss to $708 Million in First Quarter – The New York Times
Uber has spent billions to upend the transportation industry. Now, at least for the moment, it is burning slightly less cash in that effort.
HAHAHA. We shall do some math.
The company said Wednesday that it lost $708 million over the first three months of the year on revenue of $3.4 billion, not counting expenses like employee stock compensation. That is a narrowing of the previous quarter’s loss of $991 million, on revenue of $2.9 billion.
OK: Losing nearly a billion dollars a quarter translates into -$4 billion a year. I call this bleeding red ink.
In the latest in a string of executive departures, Uber also said Wednesday that its finance leader, Gautam Gupta, was leaving to join a start-up. Uber said it was looking for someone with experience running financial operations for a public company.
HAHAHA. Rats jumping a sinking ship. Hey, hire the bitcoin con men! They are good at pretending stuff. So, if things are going great, why the exodus? It is obvious, this is a failure and their attempt at being a monopoly failed. Time to fold and go home.
And I wish the NYT had a finance editor. The article is stupid.
