Germany: As Some Of Its Top Leaders Never Saw ‘CV-19’ Approaching, Upon Arrival, Many Citizens Ignore It

It is an interesting paradox, for many of us in International Business, to see situations, where clear and precise ‘Rules of Engagement’ are not active throughout a country [where noted for its intelligent citizens]; these ‘Rules’ [now effete in Germany] are as to CV-19. It appears that rather than have a ‘Nation-Wide” direction for citizens to follow, each State has its own rules to obey. We are impressed by the concept: “Sword of Consistency”; that is, Leaders not only issue their mandates, but also enforce them vigorously. “No Bite, No Fright” prevails where rigorous abidement of rules is absent. In Germany, as in other countries, many people are perishing from CV-19. It is not the time to engage in social clustering, as a mandate of ‘fashionability’ with others.

The one common thread we see in the on-going CV-19 ‘episodes’ in Germany, is a continuance of ‘weak leadership’ at both the Federal as well as State levels. In the first instance, many of the Federal leaders did not see CV-19 ‘beyond the horizon’; nor did they know when it had arrived. This we attribute to a massive failure of ‘proper intelligence’ by those who should know; by those who MUST communicate. Upon, being cognizant of CV-19’s visitation, leaders did little to attack it, apparently. The dispersion of the virus was not understood, and the fact that Germany would have many citizens and non-citizens, that were asymptomatic, confused the leadership. Since the top leader of the country was a noted Chemist, such lack of understanding possible parameters of this virus is unusual. Even more so to us, is the fact, it appears this same person did not IMMEDIATELY call upon the country’s best Bio-Chemists for their ‘counter-attack’ recommendations; appalling. “Good Leadership is, as Good Leadership does: Decisive and Timely.”

The recent ‘Canal Event’, we think, had one beneficiary: CV-19. This ‘weak’ “Single Strand, RNA” needs all the help it can get, for transmissivity. If the ‘rafters’ in the canal were desirous to become “Sheep for the Wolves”, they were. If they desired to become “Agents of the Wolves” rest assured, it most likely happened. While they may have acheived financial or social redress to their grievances, [as the rationale for the event] they also attained sociopathic plaudits, from ‘those’ they helped logarithmically: the Wolves of CV-19.

Reality: Good social intentions, performed hazardly and untimely, can endanger all; this, when the Wolves are knocking on the door (or are already in the house).

Main Stream Media’s Fascination Of Firearm’s Violence Neglects Attention Of Other Means

America’s Federal Bureau of Investigation [FBI] released its important listing of firearms ‘Background Checks’ of citizens, for the month of June, 2020. One must be ‘cleared’ by legal authorities, in order to purchase an approved handgun, rifle, or shotgun. The list of ‘negating reasons’ that will prevent a authorization to buy a firearm is quite extensive.

The FBI stated that nearly 4,000,000 ‘National Instant Criminal Background Check System’ (NICS) checks were made in June. This was a historical ‘high’ as to examinations of ‘bona fides’ to purchase arms. A estimated 2,387,524 firearms were sold during the month.

If one reviews the numbers provided by the World Bank [https://data.worldbank.org/indicator/VC.IHR.PSRC.P5], one sees that there are five homicide deaths per one hundred thousand persons in America. Firearms deaths are a mere component of the aforementioned; This, relative to all the countries examined. In conjunction with America’s large population of approximately 331,000,000+, living in 9,833,517 sq. km. [3,796,742 sq. mi.], the death percentage is quite low. As are the number of policemen, per square mile, available ’24/7/365′.

Our having been in various, physically precarious situations over the years, in a variety of geographic locations, particularly in precious metals mining, we can readily understand the enthusiasm of Americans for self-protection. A old mining adage is: “A friend [handgun], when in need, is a friend, indeed.” It is part of the psyche of independence and self-reliance to handle negative situations; if no law enforcement is available, ‘Do your best to survive’.

What we have a very hard time understanding, as International Businessmen, are Main Stream Media’s {MSM’s] incessant attention to shootings, especially in America. Yet, if there are multiple victims: by bludgeoning, poisoning, stabbing or suffocation, NEXT TO NOTHING is mentioned. If any of these hostile actions occur to a single individual, it may not even ‘make the news’. If the hostilities occur in other countries, MSM will barely mention them. Why is that?

As we think about MSM’s rationale for its timid reporting of the aforementioned, non-firearms, hostilities, we ponder such reasoning. Perhaps it is because these ‘Journalism Majors’ are “Acousticians”, who deplore the noises generated by firearms? Kill people quietly, and while not approved by MSM, it is certainly more fashionably “Green’, in an environmental sense. There are no people who suffer ‘Acoustic Trauma’ nor ‘Bilateral Tinnitus’ as a result of the ‘quiet killings’ as there are with firearms.

As we try to make serious sense of MSM’s continual attempts to ‘De-Arm America’ there is one hypothesis that nags at us. That is: “Are those in MSM surreptitiously acting as agents of enemies of America?” “Do they want a ‘Dis-armed America’ because it is too hard to conquer a 331,000,000+ manned ‘citizen-armed militia’? This force with even many more weapons [and bullets] than personnel?” Paranoia: ‘No’, just good military appraisal.

Which armies of any nation on Earth could possibly win against America’s 331,000,00+ ‘combatants’, ‘armed to the teeth’? Which political leader of any hostile country could convince his military leaders of the probability of success in ‘taking on America’? NONE! Those with stars on their uniforms, around the world, understand the teachings of Sun Tzu’s ‘The Art of War’. To wit: “A battle is won or lost before it begins.”

Assuming world leaders understand the numbers of weapons and ammunition, along with the U.S.A. population, then the tactic changes. It goes from not fighting, due to numerical armed inferiority, to: Disarm the possible combatants. This requires of another hostile country: MSM ‘conscripts’ along with ‘pliable politicians’ doing the work for the enemy forces. By ‘raising alarm’ no matter what the facts are, both ‘Agent-Groups’ can try to sell disarmament to the U.S. public. If that does not work, a ‘Executive Order’ might be employed, to by-pass legislation. Unfortunately, these are not ‘movie scenes’ but possible tactics of hegemonic nations.

Another related tactic, as we have written in other articles, is to establish entropy in America through ‘Anarchy’ and ‘Chaos’. By demoralizing the citizenry, political upheaval may result. It is much easier to slaughter the sheep, by wolves, if the faithful sheep dogs, have been removed.

Again, if one thinks beyond the sizzle, he is hearing, he might smell the stench of Treason, which can become quite odoriferous over time. To Cabalists and hypocritical Politicians, we say: “Those of us with experience can readily comprehend your treacheries. Before you strut around pompously, make sure it is not on top of quicksand. There are no long term secrets.”

There is a old “Greek Sheepherder’s adage”, used to judge both politicians and other well-publicized people: “Be most leery of the Wolves, who have learned to bleat, as though they are Sheep”.

Reality: There is no substitute for experience. Get your teeth kicked in enough, and they will become petrified; especially one’s ‘Canines’.

“Bolts Out Of The ‘Black'”: Lightning Megaflashes

The United Nations’ World Meteorological Organization [WMO], reported a 700+ kilometers [435+ statute miles] long, lightning megaflash. This behemoth of energy flow occurred in Brazil on 31 October, 2018. Elsewhere, there have been other impressive bolts.

Previously, ground mapping stations were utilized to review lightning strikes. However, spatial considerations, among other factors, provided the impetus for building ‘special-task’ satellite-imaging craft; these for lightning flow assessments. Now, both distances traveled, as well as energies-released measurements, can occur over wider expanses. By utilizing both ground and space systems conjointly, precision is attained.

The ‘macro-geometric’ measuring capability should allow meteorologists, far and wide, the ability to evaluate lightning in a manner not possible just a few years ago. Satellite technology provides three-dimensional measuring capability, on a multi-nation scale, in many areas of the world.

A sailor, ‘Top Side’ on a merchant ship, [be it a ‘Bulker’, ‘Container’, L.N.G., or, Oil Tanker] may be standing at a height of 10 meters above the water line. His ‘visible horizon distance” is 11.3 kilometers [7.0 statute miles] in good weather. Ergo, he would never see that which could strike him, from far beyond the horizon, until it was far too late. Now, a ship ‘radarman’ must be aware of the aforementioned, great striking distance of lightning; and thereby alert any crewmen ‘on deck’. This new information from the WMO, may be life-savers.

One might consider what long-term economic impact this technology will have for the Insurance industry, for one. To know: the probability of such electrical events occurring; when, during the year; of what intensities and durations; over which geographic areas, will be invaluable to Insurers and Re-Insurers. With such knowledge: Actuaries can establish insurance rates; customers may find it economically advantageous to minimize property losses. They might by installing preemptively, electrical storm mitigating technologies [as have been long-required on ships]; this would certainly benefit the Insurance Industry. [There may be many smiling faces in Bermuda.] Those who wisely invest in Insurance Companies’ stocks may also be elated by increases in profits.

Reality: Understanding Mother Nature, is for wise men, a roadway to comprehending, and obtaining cost-mitigating efficiencies; this, for business and personal profits.

The ‘Globalists’ “Terrible Times Triumvirate” Agents, Against ‘Internationalists’: N. Tropy and his Steadfast Stalwarts being ‘Ann Archy’ and ‘Kay Oss’

Our having roles in International Business for many decades, has allowed us to qualify as ‘Having been around the block many times’. As such, we have witnessed the same scenarios played out often around the world: ‘Globalists’ who seek conjunctions of many countries into a few ‘blocs’ [for ease of their global control strategies]. ‘Internationalists’ on the other hand, WANT the 200+ Nations on Earth to be independent of each other. A multiplicity of powers: thereby being relatively equal, to each Nation’s unique assets [human and natural], and locations geographically.

As an iceberg displays a mere 10% of itself above the water [90% being submerged, so is ‘murkier’ from above]; such are Globalists’ cabals. They will employ various social tactics, to cause political upheavals, for their own economic gains.

More ‘recent’ examples, of which we have previously written: Joseph Patrick Kennedy Sr.’s attempts to take over Vietnam initially, later, Cuba, then back to Vietnam [after his son was elected U.S. President]. You may want to review our past articles about these subjects. The point being: In EACH case, to achieve economic goals, social entropy was created, which was designed for political changes; so he and his associates could realize vast economic gains. The citizens of those countries ‘be damned’ was their credo.

Presently, throughout the world, there are social movements utilized to hide Globalists true intentions. The plotters want to put political pressure on Nations leaders so they can achieve their own economic goals quicker. There are only a few Strong World Leaders; other Leaders are mere ‘leaders’. This is a reality of life. The plotters think they will win.

When one hears about ‘Global Warming'[now, more ‘fashionably’ “Climate Change”], ‘Clean Energy’ (Geo-Thermal, Solar, and Wind) ask: “Who is funding the protestors?” Moreover, “Who really gains with the changes?”

Another ‘in vogue’ protest now is: “De-funding or Eliminating Police Departments”. “Who gains economically?” We submit: ‘Ann Archy’ and ‘Kay Oss’ would prosper. And both, as one can see on television, can provide protestors’ emotional ‘sizzle’. “Law and Order” be damned. In fact, ‘Masked Robbers” are no longer ‘in play’, today it is ‘Mask-less’ arsonists, looters, robbers, and murderers; because they have ‘legitimate complaints’, some say.

We can continue on but the basic idea is “As with an iceberg with 90% of its mass largely out of easy view, ‘Globalists’ need obscurity. They need Strong Leaders to be removed from office so mere ‘Puppets’ can replace them. If done, ‘Globalists’ can have ‘free rein’ to rule as they choose.

We prefer Nations to freely and openly engage in commerce, while protecting their individual sovereignties. Their commercial regulations apply to themselves, not to other Nations. They cooperate with other countries but do what is best for their own citizenry. Such leaders DO NOT push off their people to other Nations because they are too lazy to solve their own economic difficulties. Interestingly, there will be a small group of ‘wealthy’ in each country of which we are speaking. They just help themselves.

It is our opinion that International Trade should be encouraged anyway possible: Dredging harbors,; building wharfs; facilitating ship licensing; training pilots; expanding airport runways, paving highways, et al.

By NOT having a few “Globalists’ control the world, with citizens being their serfs, people far and wide prosper.

With plentiful commerce, people gain financially. De-regulation, of business activities is the fuel for economic growth. In growth are the roots of survival of Nations.

Reality: The diversity of Nations is copacetic with the proviso: “Nature abhors singularities”. The ‘More, The Better’.

‘Segway’: A Utilitarian Product, Under-Designed, While Over-Priced, Sinks Into “Economic Quicksand”

The ‘automatic balancing ability’ of the Segway transporter has apparently failed in balancing performance vis-a-vis cost of production; and, subsequent pricing for retail ownership. It has been announced that this possibly commercially-viable vehicle will no longer be produced due to lack of world-wide sales.

As International Businessmen with decades of experience in ideation of products based on exotic materials and metals, preliminary design, manufacturing cost estimating, production, and marketing, we have seen potentially ‘great’ products, of others fail. Many of these ‘goods’ would be able to help people become more productive in their daily lives. Quite often, a potential manufacturer of a product wants great unit profits to be in their business plan. The fact that buyers might not value the product at the same price-point, is of little concern. So, the item is manufactured, offered for sale, and sits in the ‘showroom’ with no buyers.

As to Segway, a lack of well-engineered stopping capability in the vehicle, and apparent lack of operator controlled-sensitivity adjustments, as designed, doomed it to sales failure. A novice operator should have more ‘retarded’ velocity/vector capacity than of an experienced user, such as policemen patrolling avenues. Furthermore, in such a example, braking should be enhanced electronically for the novice.

All of us thought the Segway was a great move forward in personal transportation; we still do. However, a advanced iteration of this platform will be essential. This, if the present Chinese owners hope to sell their product. Right now, one might ask: “Show me where the “$5,000.00″ is built into this product.” [On a mass-production scale, it is not apparent.] If they cannot, then the ‘Price/Value’ relationship is overloaded by the price; it will NOT sell.

A ‘fairly good product’ at a “too-high” price will not sell; a ‘very good product’ at a “too-high” price, may suffer the same fate. An old aircraft adage: “If it is designed well, it will fly well; If priced well, the ‘bird’ will sell well.” applies, even to Segways.

Reality: It is not the marketed product, at a particular price-point, that is important; but, the consumer’s estimation of the value to be received by that product, at that cost to he or she, that makes a sale or not.

Indonesia Modernizes Its Mining Laws: Many Benefits Will Follow

President Joko Widodo has signed into law a upgrading of Mining Laws for his country. Continuing to show strong leadership, as to many aspects of his government, Mr. Widodo has modernized this industry for his citizens.

Indonesia’s ‘2009 Coal And MIning Law’ was viewed to be obsolete in today’s competitive world. Its requirement of randomized sources of approval for projects, was outdated. Furthermore, its restrictions on site sizes, made projects uneconomical [much of mining profitability is scalar; ‘Volume of recoverable ore’ is a barometer of potential financial success]. The updated law allows for riparian mining. The new regulations will also provide for greater clarity for international investors; an excellent revision.

It is interesting to note that the ‘clamor’ against the new law is provided by ‘non-Miners’ and other ‘outsider’ vested interests. Both, who continually spout off “Environmental Concerns” for their bona-fides.

Since the new law has been reviewed by Indonesian government legal authorities, as lawful, who are these others to criticize? We, as International Businessmen, have heard similar diatribes, over and over again, AGAINST ANY AND ALL MINING, ad nauseum. What is not mentioned by these ‘outliers’ is the fact: The world today, would not exist, as it is, if it were not for previous mined and processed mineralizations. If these same decriers of ‘Mining’, are so resolute, let them live ‘naturally’ in bamboo huts, on some far-off islet.

It takes the decisiveness of a strong leader, as is President Widodo, to make his country even more competitive in the world. This Mining Law upgrade, by advancing mining financial requirements of investors, along with its legal review of projects, should assure growth. With growth, is increased survive-ability.

Reality: A Leader, who listens to opposing views, but pays no heed to their ignorant shouts, will make wise objective decisions.

Going For Gold [Au]: Wise Nations’ Leaders See Beyond The Horizon

Russia, is predicted to lead China in mining of Gold, in future years, per Fitch Corporation. In its analysis of Gold Mining Operations, Fitch thinks that the prodigious production rates of Gold mining will increase even further than present rates of production, in Russia.

China has taken a cautious view of Gold mining processes. Cyanide is used extensively in the conversion process. Mining raw ore; crushing and grinding; heap leaching with Cyanide; Carbon processing, to Dore; to smeltered purity is the methodology. Since Chinese populations are near present-day mining operations, a retardation of Au activities, in China, is the result.

China presently, has expanded its Au production desires to South America, where substantial Au mineralizations are located. In a large commercial transaction, the Chinese have wisely accumulated ownership interest in Argentina. Venezuela, with large Gold deposits, are of interest, and one can easily envision others locations of their possible future intentions: Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, and Peru immediately come to mind by we, who consider such assets.

Russia has a enviable Au environment in which its mining companies deal: that is, large deposits of Gold, many being relatively distant from large populations. Since the cost effectiveness of Gold mining is certainly scalar, going from ‘Shaft’ Mining’ to “Open Pit’ Mining’ will lead to significant cost savings. ‘Up Front’ costs are much greater in the latter; for example, Excavators, Graders, Haulers, Shovels, and the like must be utilized. However, in ‘Shaft Mining’, with its ‘descent’ followed by ‘branching’, followed by ‘descent’, and then again, ‘branching’, is not very efficient. In shaft mining, ore grade quality is of extreme importance; one ‘follows the vein’ Typically, quantities are far less recoverable than in ‘Open Pit’ operations. . Open Pit’ mining, if Au deposits are of significant size, and ‘good’ ore grade quality, wins the scalar-efficiency race.

In Mining, beyond the day-to-day costs, risks and rewards, is the fundamental economic truth: Since the dawn of civilizations, Gold has been revered as of lasting value; ‘Ink printed on paper’ “Fiat Currency” has not. It will not endure as a steadfast measure of value. Even its composition is ‘weak’ compared to Gold. The alleged, 6,000 tons of Gold, said to be held by the U.S. Government, verifies that America also agrees with China and Russia about the inherent worth of Gold.

Reality: Metallic Gold, which came to Earth from outer space, is a ‘Heaven Sent’ enduring-value commodity; It makes ‘Fiat Currencies’ “fodder for fleecing the financial foolish”.

Mother Nature’s “Lightning”: A Clear And Present Danger

A Texas rancher, unfortunately, found some of his livestock, which has been standing near a fence, dead from a lightning strike. Each year, world-wide it is estimated that domestic, as well as feral animals, are killed in the hundreds of thousands by lightning strikes. The cost to the owners of the herds is prodigious. The reality of the matter is not much has been done to protect livestock in such weather. If one ‘thinks outside the box’ there is no reason insulated transportable small ‘barns’ could not be designed and inexpensively manufactured for herd shelters.

In the areas, such as Arkhangai Province near Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, herders lose thousands of their animals yearly due to horrendous lightning storms, snow and wind. In -30C [-22F] temperatures; this loss can be reduced significantly with the aforementioned portable insulated ‘small barns’. Losses from electrical storms, in particular, could be prevented. As for humans, we are better off.

The capacity to kill, from lightning’s electrical energy, is well-known by all. In fact, it kills on average, approximately 6 people per million, per year, world wide. If one presumes there exists approximately 7.8 billion people on Earth, one sees that 46,850+/- people perish yearly from strikes. In agricultural areas around the world, for humans, the death toll is higher, due to lack of effective shelters, than of residents in cities. In urban areas one is safer due to effective housing. Since lightning injuries exceed deaths, by ten times, human suffering is quite vast. Numerically, lightning strikes to humans,and animals, as well damage such as forest fire started from the strikes, are as destructive as many ‘Influenza Pandemics’. As to ‘Flora’ damage, there is no contest.

Having engaged in hard rock mining, many of us are quite familiar with lightning storms causing ignition of blasting caps for dynamite charges. [We are also aware of firearms shots detonating sticks of dynamite; This we have witnessed]. For miners, several thousand feet underground, lightning can kill; as historical evidence in Africa has shown. It behooves executives of mining companies to secure the best of insulation for their miners in remote locales, world-wide.

It is imperative for effectively-insulated building designs to be employed, as the, in-fashion phrase, ‘Climate Change’ [no longer, “Global Warming”] evidences climatic deviance in weather patterns. This evolution in climate may produce more electrical storms in greater varied locations, and of stronger electrical intensities. At present, it appears that Japan is the leader in building fabrications with the fewest lightning strike victims in the world; a fact of which the country’s leaders should be proud.

Reality: For all living creatures and humanity, respect for ‘Mother Nature’ with her powers is essential. Those unaware, or in denial, can pay the price for this lack of acknowledgement.

Sydney, Australia River Is “Pretty” Polluted; A Ecologic Wake-Up Call For All

A surprised Sydney, Australia resident witnessed an aesthetic “Mauve” coloration of the Duck River, which flows through a portion of the city. Viewing a lack of bird and other animal life, people were concerned about the formerly muddy-brown water flow.

Fortunately for fauna and flora, in and abutting the Duck River, no apparent damage has been reported. However, one may presume that minimally, the aquaculture in the river have been affected negatively, by the unknown chemical[s]. Officials have yet to identify the miscreants and bring them to justice. The fact that the Duck River is slowly transitioning back to is muddy-brown mode is good.

ANY entity dealing with chemicals has to realize the possibility of contamination by the chemicals, accidentally or not. Since ‘Ignorance’ is never a viable excuse for contamination, we suggest an approach to those who may be found responsible. We would advocate a “No Bite, No Fright” rationale for the adjudicator to utilize in evaluating all of the evidence. A punishment with a ‘Strong Gavel’ may persuade others to be law abiding. In this Duck River case, we think that since the contaminator did not contact the authorities regarding this substantial area ‘dirtying’, he, she, or they, should pay the price: a substantial fine and incarceration might be attention- gainers for others too.

Reality: The price of contamination by a few, should never have to be paid for by ‘Mother Nature’.

Cyprus Leads Other Clean Waters European Countries as Beaches Are To Be Enjoyed

Cyprus has lead the way in clean, clear waters for its beaches. Other countries in extremely close rankings are: Austria, Malta, Greece, and Croatia; all are to be congratulated. As International Businessmen, we know from our travels, how enticing is is to swim in clean, clear waters. Additionally, from a commercial point of view: ‘Cleanliness and Purity of Waters’ are sought for man’s psyche [beautiful, compelling, and rewarding].

International visitors, with much cash to spend, will seek out not only ‘Five Star’ hotels, but will also seek out beautiful beaches which are deemed ‘Safe’ in which to swim. Smart businessmen should certainly seek certification of their adjoining waters as an excellent marketing tool.

It behooves all businessmen to do everything possible to make sure their beaches and waters are not only ‘non-polluted’ but of the highest level in ‘cleanliness and clarity’. Clean waters can make for: Clear ‘Selling’ of one’s “ship” to possible ‘passengers’. It can mean more Euros into one’s business bank account.

Reality: A wholesome image, backed by verification, endures for those who want to win.
