A few days ago, I came into an article that gave me some concerns. This came as an analysis of the magazine cover of Economist January 2015 issue, one of the popular mainstream periodicals in the field of economics.
I was having second thoughts on posting it here, but when I saw an article at RT that tackled China’s concern regarding the developing “closeness” between Modi and Obama, this finally triggered the posting of this article.
While this could be a desperate attempt to cast doubt on the BRICS true intentions, as the Cabal has been busy doing the same thing with bloggers covering the on-going effort to knock them down, it’s still to our welfare to be aware of these possibilities.
In the end, it is our collective effort that will determine the degree of freedom we could achieve, and not those who are claiming to provide us so.
Eternal vigilance and self-empowerment trough the accumulation of useful knowledge are two things we can all do. There are no excuses.
China vigilant as India transforms its diplomatic posture towards the US
The meeting between US President Obama and Indian Prime Minister Modi is a clear statement that India is finally shedding ambiguity from its foreign policy and making tough choices, a stance that’s putting Beijing on guard.
The 66th Indian Republic Day celebration grabbed impressive number of international headlines, thanks to New Delhi’s ‘special’ guest – US President Barack Obama, the first American president to not only visit India twice during his tenure, but also the first to preside as chief guest at the occasion.
The visit saw it all, from big promises of a five-fold increase in bilateral trade, to the US committing $4 billion in loans, $2 billion for renewable energy, and, also $1 billion for financing American exports to India.
Both sides discussed sticking issues including the US’s reservation on India’s “absence of an effective IP protection,” the obtaining of H-1B visas for Indian professionals working in the US, and easing the business environment in India for American investors.
The Indo-US defense framework agreement was renewed for the next ten years. Four ‘pathfinder projects’ were identified as a scheme for co-developing defense technology under the Defense Technology Transfer Initiative (DTTI) which will include – next generation Raven Minis UAVs, roll-on roll-off kits for C-130s, mobile electric hybrid power sources, and Uniform Integrated Protection Ensemble Increment II.
A major “breakthrough” was achieved in an Indo-US civilian nuclear deal. It’s special for India because the Indian Civil Liability for Nuclear Damages (CLND) Act, 2010 is reportedly kept intact.
For years the US has been raising objections over the Indian civilian nuclear deal’s clauses especially Section 17b, which says plant operators can claim compensation from equipment suppliers in case of an accident because of “equipment or material with patent or latent defects,” and Section 46 that makes both suppliers and operators liable to be sued by accident victims.
Indian mediareportsthat the proposal of an insurance pool of $244 million, half of which is to be contributed by Indian insurance companies and the other half by the government, did the trick to break the almost seven-year logjam around the nuclear deal.
Additionally, India is also said to have stuck to its position to allow only the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) track its nuclear materials vis-à-vis US’ long time demand to track the same.
However, the most important statement from strategic point of view was that on the ‘US-India Joint Strategic Vision for the Asia-Pacific and Indian Ocean Region‘ which tacitly is sending a message to Beijing that India is now making some hard choices in the region.
The statement says that “a closer partnership between the United States and India is indispensable to promoting peace, prosperity and stability” in the wider region.
It adds, “We affirm the importance of safeguarding maritime security and ensuring freedom of navigation and over flight throughout the region, especially in the South China Sea. We call on all parties to avoid the threat or use of force and pursue resolution of territorial and maritime disputes through all peaceful means, in accordance with universally recognized principles of international law, including the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.”
Role for New Delhi in Washington’s Asia rebalance
India’s security concern – sharing a troubled boundary with China with reports of border flare ups as recently as mid December 2014 – is evident from some of the first steps that the Modi government took last year soon after it came to power – shooting up foreign investment in the defense sector to 49 per cent and upping its defense outlay to $38.35 billion. However, this is nowhere close to the mammoth military budget of Beijing which has been $132 billion for 2014 and is expected to increase further this year.
On the other hand, Beijing’s overture to expand its influence in India’s neighborhood especially that with rival Pakistan is adding to New Delhi’s unease. By some estimates, more than 50 per cent of Pakistan’s weapons imports come from China. The two even signed anuclear dealrecently.
Meanwhile, coinciding President Obama’s India visit, Beijing too had a special guest – Army chief General Raheel Sharif of Pakistan, the nation that Beijing calls an ‘irreplaceable’ all-weather friend.
India’s concern is the growing ‘China-Pakistan axis’ and a looming risk of New Delhi encountering a two-front offensive. Additionally India also fears being encircled in the Indian Ocean region with China’s growing influence over countries like Sri Lanka and the Maldives.
This is where the US sees a convergence of interest with India. There seems to be a growing conviction in the American diplomatic circle of the greater effectiveness of putting up a united front to contain China and preserve the postwar order in the region than having the US “go it alone” in the region.
In fact during Modi’s visit to the US last year, both countries issued a joint statement, for the first time, specifically mentioning the situation in the South China Sea and expressing concern over the “rising tensions over maritime territorial disputes” in the region.
With a similar statement this time, many feel this has become an important part of the joint strategic vision for the Asia-Pacific prompting some to think New Delhi could be gradually partnering with Washington in its “Asia rebalance ” strategy.
Meanwhile, India continues to propagate freedom in the disputed South China Sea. A language very conspicuous during Indian President Pranab Mukherjee’s visit to Vietnam last year, where he issued a joint statement favoring freedom of navigation in the East Sea/South China Sea and calling all parties concerned to exercise restraint, avoid threat or use of force.
Interestingly, India’s ‘Act East Policy’ has also found a mention in the joint statement along with US’ rebalance to Asia as a platform that provide opportunities for India, the United States, and other Asia-Pacific countries to work closely to strengthen regional ties.
This many feel could be indicative of a growing US-India-Japan trilateral partnership. While the US is already an ally of Tokyo, India and Japan too have been expanding security ties under Modi.
Sharp reactions from China
Beijing is clearly alarmed with this extended Indo-US bonhomie evident from Beijing’s Republic Day message to India which while offering to take the bilateral strategic partnership to a “higher level,” also cautioned New Delhi to avoid a “zero-sum trap” that was being set up by Washington and its allies.
China said that Washington through its ‘pivot to Asia’ policy was trying to pit New Delhi against Beijing.
Quite tellingly, just as President Obama and Modi released a joint statement mentioning India’s phased entry into the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG), the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR), the Wassenaar Arrangement and the Australia Group;Beijing too announced its conditional support for India’s NSG membership saying India should take required steps to satisfy standards of the NSG.
Taking note of the Indo-US statement on the South China Sea, a Chinese official is said to have criticized the joint announcement saying the need is to “maintain a fine situation in the South China Sea and not to stir up trouble.”
Many feel India is shedding the ambiguity that has characterized its foreign diplomacy for long – a posture New Delhi’s neighborhood needs to come to terms with. Take the case of Israel: New Delhi is coming out in the open proposing closer ties with Tel Aviv. The same goes for the US as for a long time New Delhi has shied away from owning a relationship with Washington under the pretext of non-alignment.
Even in the case of China that has been sent a clear message during the visit of President Xi Jinping that while India is open to expand its relationship with Beijing, it will not compromise on security issues.
Strategically India wants to regain its lost importance in the region especially in Southeast Asia and the Indian Ocean region. It has made a clear choice who it wants to partner with for this.
However Indian diplomatic circles are concerned over the ‘packaging’ of the joint statement on Asia Pacific and the Indian Ocean region. There is a risk that smaller nations in India’s neighborhood including ASEAN may view New Delhi leaning overly towards the Americans who are perceived by many as ‘big brother’, and in this case could act as a ‘quasi’ big brother. Deft diplomacy is needed to send the right message across the region and beyond.
The Economist 2015 Cover is Filled With Cryptic Symbols and Dire Predictions
Jan 8th, 2015 |
I wouldn’t normally dedicate an entire article analyzing the cover of a publication, but this isn’t any publication. It is The Economist and it is directly related to the world elite. It is partly owned by the Rothschild banking family of England and its editor-in-chief, John Micklethwait, attended several times to the Bilderberg Conference – the secretive meeting where the world’s most powerful figures from the world of politics, finance business and media discuss global policies. The outcome of those meetings is totally secret. It is therefore safe to say that the people at The Economist know things that most people don’t. For this reason, its “2015 prediction” cover is rather puzzling.
The bleak and sinister cover features political figures, fictional characters and pop culture icons that will surely make the news in 2015. However, most importantly, it also includes several drawings that are extremely symbolic and allude to important elements of the elite’s Agenda. Here’s the cover :
(You can view a larger version of the cover here).
At first glance, we see political figures like Obama and Putin, references to the Rugby cup and the new Spider-Man movie. But a closer look reveals a plethora of disturbing elements. Here are some of them.
One side of the globe gazes stoically towards the West while the other side appears irate. Does this represent a confrontation between the East and the West? The cover features a few other symbols referring to the “rise of the East”. What’s more unsettling is that, immediately under that angry globe, are pictured a mushroom cloud (the kind that happens after a nuclear bomb goes off) and a spy satellite launching into space.
The Color of the Faces
Take a closer look at the faces of the personalities featured on the cover. Some of them are in full color while others are in black and white. Why is that?
Among those in black in white are Putin, Merkel, Obama, Hilary Clinton and David Cameron. Among those in color are David Blaine, a young person holding a “Singapore” banner (Singapore is the host of the 2015 SEA games) and a random guy wearing virtual reality equipment. A quick compilation of this data reveals that those in black and white appear to be part of the elite (including the ISIS guy who probably works for them) and those in color are “outsiders”. Is this how the elite perceives the world?
The presence of the Pied Piper on this 2015-themed cover is downright unsettling. The Pied Piper of Hamelin is a German legend about a man who used his magical flute to lure away the children of the city of Hamelin, never to be seen again.
This folkloric figure dating from the Middle-Ages is said to represent either massive death by plague or catastrophe, or a movement of massive immigration. It also perfectly represents today’s youth being “lured” and mystified by the “music” of mass media. Conveniently enough, there’s a small boy right under the Piper’s flute.
Right under the Pied Piper we see a young boy with dumbfounded look on his face. He is watching a game called “Panic”. The words “Federal Reserve” and “Chi” (which probably stands for China) are on top while the words “Green light!” and “sis!” (which probably stands for “Isis!” or “Crisis!”) are at the bottom. The little boy watches as this twisted game of Plinko unfolds the same way the clueless masses watch powerlessly while various events unfold on mass media. As the name of the game states, the ultimate goal is to cause Panic around the world as crises are almost randomly generated by those who control the game. And that’s on a magazine cover owned by the Rothschilds.
In front of Putin is a small aircraft on which is written Crop-O-Dust. This refers to the concept of crop dusting which is “the process of spraying crops with powdered insecticides or fungicides from an aircraft.” Right under the helicopter is a kid … eating something. Unsettling.
A panda bear wearing a China-flag Speedo while flexing its muscles is a rather clear way of portraying the fact that China is gaining power. Next to it is a sumo wrestler holding a big battery on which the polarities (+ and -) are clearly indicated. Are they alluding to a switch in polarity in world power from the West to the East?
Emerging from behind Obama’s leg is a ghost reading a magazine entitled “Holiday”. Why is this ghost, which represents a dead person, planning a vacation? Does it represent the fact that the masses will be so impoverished that the only time they’ll be on a holiday is when they’re dead? Does it relate to the countless people who died while traveling in the past months? Creepy.
Standing in front of everything else, gazing right into our souls is a turtle with emphasis lines around its shell. What does it represent? Will turtles make a huge comeback in 2015? Probably not.
An angry tortoise is the symbol of the Fabian Society, an extremely powerful organization that has been working for over a century towards to formation of a single world government.
The philosophy behind Fabian socialism is basically the blueprint of what we call today the New World Order.
The Fabian Society is a very old group originating in England in 1884, with the purpose of forming a single, global socialist state. They get their name from the Roman general Fabius, who used carefully planned strategies to slowly wear down his enemies over a long period of time to obtain victory. “Fabian Socialism” uses incremental change over a long period of time to slowly transform a state as opposed to using violent revolution for change. It is essentially socialism by stealth. Their original emblem was a shield with a wolf in sheep’s clothing holding a flag with the letters F.S. Today the international symbol of the Fabian Society is a turtle, with the motto below: “When I strike, I strike hard.”
– The Fabian Society, The Weather Eye
The Fabian Society used to openly advocate a scientifically planned society and supported eugenics by way of sterilization. Its original logo was a wolf in sheep’s clothing … But I guess that was not the best way to conceal the wolf from the masses.
Bringing forth a global system through small incremental changes is exactly what the world elite is currently doing. This is probably why there’s an angry tortoise on the cover of this Bilderberg-connected publication – standing in front of the chaos behind it.
11.3 and 11.5
The lower right side of the cover features some more cryptic symbols. There’s a pile of dirt on the ground and two arrows on which are inscribed 11.5 and 11.3. Are those dates to remember? Why are they next to a pile of dirt? If you look up these figures as coordinates, they point to somewhere in Nigeria. Displaying numbers that can only be truly understood by “those in the know” is one of the occult elite’s favorite hobbies.
Standing in front of the dirt is Alice in Wonderland looking upwards towards the Cheshire Cat.
This iconic cat is known for disappearing entirely, leaving only visible its creepy grin. We therefore see another allusion to a world of fantasy, illusion and deceit as perceived by Alice – a representative of the masses. Along with the somewhat unnecessary inclusion of David Blaine – a magician – the cover mixes real world events with illusions.
Other notable symbols on this cover include a piggy bank flying from James Cameron’s pockets; A model wearing an Alexander McQueen creation (the elite’s favorite designer who died in strange circumstances) and an Asian officer wearing a facemask to protect him from a deadly disease.
2015 seems great, doesn’t it?
The Economist is not a random newspaper that publishes quirky 2015 predictions to sell a few additional copies. It is directly connected to those who shape global policies and who make sure that they are applied. The publication is partly owned by the Rothschild banking family of England and its editor regularly attends Bilderberg meetings. In other words, The Economist is connected to those who have the means and the power to make “predictions” a reality.
The 2015-themed cover basically reflects the overall Agenda of the elite and is peppered with cryptic symbols that appear to be included for “those in the know”. And the masses, like Alice watching the Cheshire Cat disappear, will focus on illusions while the wolf in sheep’s clothing will strike … and strike hard.
You can actually participate in the global efforts to cripple the Deep State organized criminal cabal's ability for genocide, while enjoying healthcare freedom at the same time, by boycotting Big Pharma for good.
