Nationalist party Sinn Fèin are celebrating a historic result in Ireland

The nationalist trend continues in Europe. Similar to the United States under president Trump. A poll on Friday last week revealed that Chancellor Angela Merkel`s party CDU dropped from 21,7 percent to «only» 12 percent. What a bombshell.

Only a few days later, we have a new bombshell. This time it is in Ireland were Sinn Fèin are celebrating a historic result. Sinn Fèin won 37 seats which is an increase of 14 on the 2016 election. Fianna Fàil lost 6 seats, but is the largest party with 38 seats. Only one more.

The IRA`s former political wing Sinn Fèin`s leader Mary Lou McDonald said the outcome was «something of a revolution in the ballot box». Sinn Fèin used to be a political wing of the Irish Republican Army (IRA), which fought for Irish unity during the decades-long sectarian conflict known as “the troubles.”

This election has been different from others and the main issues has been housing, healthcare and childcare. The answer to that is the nationalist party Sinn Fèin which is not a left-wing party but a nationalist party. A party more like a pragmatic party according to specialists.

This is a complicated phenomen because the party was changed to Sinn Fèin – The Worker`s Party in 1977 and then to the Workers’ Party in 1982. The party has been closely associated with the IRA. Natable organisations that derived from it include Democratic Left and the Irish Republic Socialist Party.

Before the split with the terrorist organisation IRA in 1969-1970, the Workers’ Party was a Marxist-Leninist political party. But the Marxist outlook became unpopular with many of the more traditionalist republicans, and the party/army leadership was criticised for failing to defend northern Catholic enclaves from loyalist attachs.

(These debates took place against the background of the violent beginning of what would become «The Troubles»).

Mr. Varadkar`s center-right party Fine Gael slumped in opinion polls amid crisis in housing and healthcare. They have been trading power for decades along with another center-right party Fianna Fail. A duopol that is now coming to an end.

Both center-right parties had ruled out an alliance with Sinn Fèin during the campaign, and Mr Varadkar said Sinn Fèin was «not a normal party.»

Sinn Fèin support a policy of «critical engagement with the EU», and have a «principled opposition» to a European superstate. It opposes an EU constitution because it would reduce the sovereignty of the member-states.

It also criticises the EU on grounds of neoliberalism. Sinn Fèin MEP Matt Carthy says the «European Union must become a cooperative union of nation states committed to working together on issus such as climate change, migration, trade, and using our common strengths to improve the lives of citizens.

If it does not, EU disintegration becomes a real possibility.

The phrase «Sinn Fèin» is Irish for «Ourselves» or «We Ourselves».The name is an assertion of Irish national soverignity and self-determination; i.e., the Irish people governing themselves, rather than being part of a political union with Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) under the Westminister Parliament.

Sinn Fèin is the largest Irish republican party, and a republican document of the early 1980`s stated: «Both Sinn Fèin and the IRA play different but converging roles in the war of national liberation. The Irish Republican Army wages an armed campaign….. Sinn Fèin maintains the propaganda war and is the public and political voice of the movement.

The British government stated in 2005 that «we had always said all the way through we believed that Sinn Fèin and the IRA were inextricably linked and that had obvious implications at leadership level.»

«This is not a protest vote», leader of Sinn Fèin Mary Lou McDonald said on national TV yesterday. Why people voted for Sinn Fèin is their deep dissatisfaction with the traditional big two parties in Ireland. What people ask for is an alternative party for government. Huh…sounds like AfD in Germany. Another alternative party.

The risk now is a destabilisation of the Good Friday Agreement. The Belfast Agreement is a pair of agreements signed on 10 April 1998 that ended most of the violence of the Troubles. A political conflict in Northern Ireland that had been going on since the 1960`s.

It was a peace agreement between the British and Irish governemtns, and most of the political parties in Northern Irealand, on how Northern Ireland should be governed.

Norway`s trade surplus plunged NOK 24 billion in August

Norway`s trade surplus plunged NOK 23,8 billion in August this year. All the way down from NOK 30,5 billion to NOK 6,7 billion in the same month the prior year. This is happening in a country that is famous for being «the last Soviet state.» A country were the Communist party is growing in popularity like never before.

But is doesn`t matter, because most of the income is coming from oil and gas. In addition; they have $1 trillion in assets called The Government Pension Fund Global, also known as the Oil Fund. The fund was established in 1990 to invest the surplus revenues of the Norwegian petroleum sector.

The fund have stocks in 9158 different companies in 73 different countries. Most of the capital is invested in stocks and some of it in fixed income securities. A small part of the investments is invested in the real estate market.

The goal is to contribute to the walfare state.

Therefore, the fund and the country is dependend on sustainable growth, markets that works well and inovation.

Oil prices jumped more than 20 percent on Monday and that`s good news for Norway. The higher the price of oil, the more they earn. 62 percent of Norway`s export comes from Mineral fuels, oils and distillation products.

We all know that these category is on the way out. So, the “new oil” is fish that stands for 9,5 percent of the exports. In other words; this model is fragile.

The biggest trading partner is the United Kingdom with 22 percent export. Second is Germany with 16 percent. Third; Netherlands at 11 percent, France and Sweden with 6,7 percent. Down on the export list we will fine the U.S at 4,7 percent and China with 2,1 percent.

Two of the biggest trading partners are in trouble. United Kingdom with Brexit and Germany near recession. In addition; we have the trade tension between the U.S and China. As you can see; a higher oil price came at the right point for the fund as 62 percent of the exports comes from oil.

Brent climbed as much as 20 percent on Monday and that is the biggest percentage move since 1990 Kuwait invasion. It jumped up to $71 per barrel in the seconds after the open, before pulling back about half of the initial surge. That was equivalent to $12 increase, and that is the largest gain in dollar terms since 1988. All this is good news for Norway that is dependend on oil.

But the Nobel Peace Prize Country need to wake up, because this won`t last forever. Higher oil prices is good but that is not enough. The Petro dollar can also be a game changer in addition to all the electric vehicles that is flooding the market. Every single EV sold will decrease the demand for oil every single day.

Nor is fish enough. Oil is good especially if you are in a cartel business. You don`t have much competition either because oil is very limited in other countries. 70 percent on this planet is water and there are lots of fish in it. Other countries can start to compete in the fish industry whenever they want. Fish is not as unique as oil. Competitors can pop up and take market shares and push the prices down. Like Russia.

Russian aquaculture is planning a new RUB 1,5 billion smolt plant and that will reduce the dependence of Norwegian fry imports. Russian Aquaculture produces around 18,000 tonnes of salmon and trout on the Kola peninsula, the for northwest of Russia. Among the owners of the company are Maksim Vorobyov, the brother of the governor of Moscow.

Russia will triple the production in 11 years. The deputy head of Russia`s Fedral Agency for Fisheries Vasily Solokov has told Tass that the Russian government is drawing up plans to make salmon production account for 37 percent of all aquaculture by 2030.

Some Russian producers are hoping to increase production to cover one third of the country`s entire salmon and trout consumption. A peninsula in northern Russia which is close to key military bases and nuclear submarines is being used to grow the country`s salmon farming regime.

Communism vs Capitalism

Tons of Democrats wants to beat president Donald Trump and be the next president of the United States. The Democrats had the first debate and president Trump calls the first Democratic presidential primary debate «Boring.» And he is not alone.

Ocasio-Cotez says debate reminded her of high school class where some students didnt do their homevork. The Democrats are in real trouble when AOC mocks them all saying «not doing your homework.» Maybe the Russians have hacked NBCs audio feed during the debate, but they acted all like a Comedy Central.

Trump said in an interview thirty years ago that he was tierd of seeing the country being ripped off. It seems like someone have tried to destroy the U.S, but Trump is making it great again. The debate is about two things; Socialism/Communism and Capitalism.

If you ask some capitalists, they will say the debate was scary where the candidates on the stage lurch further towards socialism. A total reworking of the U.S democracy. They were demonizing capitalism. They were demonizing job creators. People on the left side is now too extreme for many.

There is no doubt that capitalism is working. Just look at Cuba or Venezuela. Two extreme socialist/communist countries with one big problem; there is no growth. The debate made Trump a winner because the growth have never been better in the U.S. In other words; Trump`s economy is his strongest card right now.

There are people from Cuba and Venezuela living in the U.S right now and they are very frightened because they know how it is to live in a socialist/communist country. They can see similarities; they promise free stuff for everybody, but they all know that in the end it will be a government takeover, and then it becomes oppression. In other words;

DON`T FEED THE BEAST!

I have written about communist-China for years and what we see in Hong Kong is the same. They demonstrate against the one rule communist party in Beijing. They still want a «one country, two systems» model. They want to be independent and govern themselves.

Former prime minister Margaret Thatcher said in the 80`s in a meeting with communist leader Deng Xiaoping that Hong Kong must be able to retain its way of life, legal system, their economic system, freedom of speech, freedom of press and freedom of association. Freedom of religious worship.

These are fundamental freedoms, Thatcher said.

Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo wanted democracy and freedom but the communist-party in China put him in jail for that. The one-rule communist-party doesn`t care about human rights. Nor do the Godless communists care about christians. Or muslims.

The totalitarian and authoritarian one-rule communist party in Beijing hav built a network of internment camps in Xinjiang where hundreds of thousands of ethnic Uighurs are beleved to have been detained.

Uighur journaist and activist Gulchehra Hoja have warned about the consentration camps in Xinjiang which is similar to Holocoust and crazy things that happened thousands of years ago. It`s all about communist propaganda.

In the camps, they get up at 5 am. They do a lot of learning. They start the day by singing songs for two hours a day. Sometimes three or four hours. The text goes like this: «Without the Communist party, there will be no new China.»

the prisoners watch movies that praise Xi Jinping and also the Communist Party. They would also tell them about religion, saying: «There is no such a thing as religion. Why do you beliee in religion? There is no God. Do you have a Coran at home?»

You will lose your freedom if you feed the beast too much. The government will blow up and be an arrogant intellectual idiot. 30 years ago, the one-rule communist party in China killed its own citizens who wanted democracy and freedom. Communists do not care about the rule of law. There is only one side; their side.

China is a totalitarian and authoritarian police state. They control the people by fear and silencing them all. If you say something about the president, they will put you in jail. If you say something about democracy, they will put you in jail. You have no freedom of speech.

So can be said about Turkey and Erdogan. A Nationalist state which is totalitarian and authoritarian. Erdogan controls the police, military and media. Plenty of journalists in Turekey are put in prison. The economy is a disaster and people in Turkey want a change.

The government is your servant, not your master!

You have lost your freedom if your government treat you like a doormat. This is the point were the government have become a beast. Your enemy. A system against you which is totally wrong and insane because you are paying their wages; tax money.

Some countries in the West have China as a role model and you are hereby warned. The battle is between communists and capitalists. So who are the Americans gonna vote for? So far, I think president Trump is the big winner and the radical socialists are in trouble.

4th of July is approaching and it`s a rally for FREEDOM!

Trump supporter Tomi Lahren said socialist Ocasio-Cortez lacks logic and common sense

Tomi Lahren were attacked in public for being a conservative Trump supporter and she is not the only one to be attacked. Sarah Sanders from the White House was also attacked at a restaurant last year. Kirstjen Nielsen who said thanks to Mr Trump for the opportunity to serve the U.S on Monday has also been attacked. She was forced out of a restaurant.

You can clearly see how the mob is working, but Tomi belive it will be worse as we head into 2020. The more Democrats loose on policy issues, the more they will attack republicans. Just look at the fake news journalists and some politicians and listen to what they have to say about Trump. How sick he is. How dangerous he is. This is how you see how dangerous they are, Tomi added.

Attorney Barr and Mueller concluded that there was no collusion with Russia, but Maxine Waters still want to impeach Donald Trump. Why not wait about ten years after his death? He won`t be there to defend himself.

What kind of society are you living in?

Are you living in an authoritarian and totalitarian society like communist China? Or are you living in a dictatorship like North Korea? Or maybe you are living in a free society? Just look at your own society and you will find out what society you live in.

A.E. Samaan is the author of the book From a “Race of Masters” to a “Master Race,” and he said that tyrants are obvious, and easy to identify. It is the well entrenched and corrupt establishment that is truly insidious.”

“All Socialism is Democratic Socialism. Socialist nations take away civil liberties by referendum. Socialism is submission of the masochistic masses to the will of the sadistic elites.”

“Capitalism is not a form of government. Capitalism is a symptom of freedom. It is the result of individual rights, which include property rights.”
