Mr Schauble said no single country could bear the brunt of the migrant crisis, as he called on the European Union to reform policies to help out Italy.
His comments could also be seen as a rebuttal on French President ((((((Emmanuel)))))) Macron who yesterday claimed there was “no migrant crisis”, after a meeting with Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez in Paris to discuss how to manage the arrival of migrants.
Mr Schauble said: “I believe immigration is one of the greatest challenges for our Western model of democracy.
“We need to find better answers to face it.
“Immigration is an essential challenge for Europe and only by standing together we can tackle it.
“No country can make it on its own.”
The Bundestag president, known in his days as a financial minister as a fiscal hawk and nightmare of southern European countries for his austerity measures, also urged European nation to help Rome to face the migrant crisis.
He said: “We can’t imagine, not for the past, presence or future, a Europe without Italy, so we need to solve this problem together.”
Mr Schauble stated Italy needs “solidarity” and that immigration is a problem that must be shared among all EU state members.
Explaining that countries such as Malta and Italy can’t bear the burden of immigration by themselves just because they overlook the Mediterranean, he said: “Europe’s founding principle is open borders, but it can only be applied if there is a common responsibility over external borders.
Mr Schauble said no single country could bear the brunt of the migrant crisis
“Immigration is an issue for Italy as much as for Germany and the Netherlands.
“It’s not just a matter of solidarity to Italy, we also need to understand we share a common interest within the EU.”
His words come amid growing tensions between France, Spain and Italy.
Mr Macron was backed by Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez in his attack to Rome over the new immigration policy issued by interior minister Matteo Salvini.
Italy was accused by Mr Sanchez of being “egotistical” after anti-immigration leader Mr Salvini issued a new regulation denying the right to dock in Italy to non-for-profit organisations carrying migrants from Africa.
((((((Emmanuel)))))) Macron claimed there was no migrant crisis in Italy
He said: “There are government, such as Italy’s one, where national egotism is widespread.”
He also said Spain won’t be insensitive to human tragedies and will take in as many immigrants as it can.
But he admitted Madrid won’t be able to face immigration on its own.
And the French president stirred the already difficult relations between Paris and Rome ahead of the mini-summit focused on immigration called by Angela Merkel.
He said: “We need to be clear and take a look at the numbers.
Angela Merkel called the EU mini-summit to find a common solution to immigration
“Italy isn’t living a migrant crisis as last year.
“Whoever says that, is lying.”
In a thinly-veiled attack to Mr Salvini and Italy’s new populist government, he added: “A political crisis triggered by extremists who play with fears.
“But we don’t need to surrender to this manipulation.”
Italy’s interior minister blasted the French President comment as “arrogant”.
He said: “Six hundred and fifty thousands arrivals in four years, 430thousands asylum seekers appeals, 170thousands so-called refugees hosted in hotels and apartments at a cost higher than five billion euro.
Mayhem broke out in the Mediterranean on Friday as more than 900 migrants set off from Libya to reach Europe in just 24 hours.
“If the arrogant Macron believes this isn’t a problem, I invite him to show generosity with facts opening the many French harbours and stopping to turn away women, children and men in Ventimiglia, on the Italian border.”
Italy’s prime minister Giuseppe Conte is currently holding talks with Mr Macron, Mr Sanchez and Angela Merkel in Brussels over immigration.
The summit was called ahead of the EU talks with the 28 state members of the union taking place on June 28-29.
Mrs Merkel hopes to find a common European solution over secondary movements within the bloc following the immigration row sparked with her interior minister Horst Seehofer that could lead her 13-year long leadership to an en
Self-driving cars, or autonomous vehicles (AVs), have become a reality that is already transforming technology and car-making industries. By 2030, it is possible that the majority of cars on the road will be driverless.
Experts project that self-driving cars have the potential to increase productivity, make more space for housing and business in cities, create and destroy jobs, and dramatically undermine the case for car ownership as ride and car sharing becomes more common. Self-driving cars could add as much $7 trillion to the global economy and $2 trillion to the US economy alone by 2050. However, much of this money will go to car manufacturers such as GM as Volkswagen, as well as ride-sharing applications like Uber and Lyft. Technology companies such as Google are also poised to become major players in the self-driving car market, potentially disrupting the auto industry. Where currently car manufacturers’ dominate the auto industry, technology startups and ride-sharing applications are too competing in self-driving vehicle creation.
What will happen to the auto industry when leading car manufacturers’ no longer dominate and technology startups/ ridesharing applications become larger players? How can self-driving cars benefit society and spur economic growth? What impact might this have on global trade?
Ten years ago, Amazon introduced the Kindle and established the appeal of reading on a digital device. Four years ago, Jeff Bezos and company rolled out the Echo, prompting millions of people to start talking to a computer.
Now Amazon.com Inc. is working on another big bet: robots for the home.
The retail and cloud computing giant has embarked on an ambitious, top-secret plan to build a domestic robot, according to people familiar with the plans. Codenamed “Vesta,” after the Roman goddess of the hearth, home and family, the project is overseen by Gregg Zehr, who runs Amazon’s Lab126 hardware research and development division based in Sunnyvale, California. Lab126 is responsible for Amazon devices such as the Echo speakers, Fire TV set-top-boxes, Fire tablets and the ill-fated Fire Phone.
The Vesta project originated a few years ago, but this year Amazon began to aggressively ramp up hiring. There are dozens of listings on the Lab 126 Jobs page for openings like “Software Engineer, Robotics” and “Principle Sensors Engineer.” People briefed on the plan say the company hopes to begin seeding the robots in employees’ homes by the end of this year, and potentially with consumers as early as 2019, though the timeline could change, and Amazon hardware projects are sometimes killed during gestation.
Leading scientists have drawn up plans for a vast multinational European institute devoted to world-class artificial intelligence (AI) research in a desperate bid to nurture and retain top talent in Europe.
The new institute would be set up for similar reasons as Cern, the particle physics lab near Geneva, which was created after the second world war to rebuild European physics and reverse the brain drain of the brightest and best scientists to the US.
Named the European Lab for Learning and Intelligent Systems, or Ellis, the proposed AI institute would have major centres in a handful of countries, the UK included, with each employing hundreds of computer engineers, mathematicians and other scientists with the express aim of keeping Europe at the forefront of AI research.
ANDREW and Jocie Bates know robotic technology is the future of farming and they are excited to be holding the key.
The Bates are just a few months away from rolling out robots to commercial farmers, driving a whole new wave of technology and efficiency in all types of agriculture.
The central Queensland grain growers founded SwarmFarm Robotics at Gindie, south of Emerald, eight years ago when they realised that many traditional farming methods were no longer effective or sustainable long term.
“We’ve been farming here since the late 1970s — we had zero till, controlled traffic and we were fairly efficient at what we were doing but we thought where to next?” Andrew said.
“The mining industry here meant we struggled with permanent staff and everyone was buying bigger and bigger machinery and equipment, yet the equipment was so big it wasn’t as effective — and herbicide resistance was becoming a huge problem.”
Andrew thought robots were the answer to using herbicides more effectively and started looking into the technology.
“Driverless cars weren’t even being talked about yet but there were some driverless dump trucks in the WA mines,” Andrew said.
The Bateses learnt some valuable information and lessons through the university sector and developed a clear vision of where they wanted to go.
“To meet the needs of a rapidly growing human population, we need to grow more food than ever before,” Andrew said.
“Bigger machines are not the answer, smarter machines are.”
THE Bateses wanted to create a small, simple machine that did simple tasks very well.
The initial concept began as an autonomous golf buggy, which later progressed to the base robot they have now.
It is an open interface robot, a platform to potentially carry any type of farm equipment, making it suitable for all types of agriculture, ranging from broadacre cropping to horticulture and turf farms.
“The base platform opens the innovation to anybody at a grassroots level,” Andrew said.
“It can have a fertiliser spreader attached, a sprayer or a mower, and in years to come there will even be a robot for deep ripping.”
SwarmFarm has a team of permanent staff working to refine the technology.
Jocie said they had raised about $4 million in seed funding over three years to get to this point.
“Sometimes it feels slow but it’s technology that we have to get right,” she said.
“We are creating software and hardware so when you have elements ranging from radio communications to bits of steel and tyres, hydraulic drive systems, GPS and safety, it’s very complex.”
A large part of developing the technology was to ensure the robots were easily fixed.
“We want farmers to be empowered to be able to fix their machines again rather than having to get technicians in because there is an error code,” Jocie said.
“We envision local swapnostics centres or spare parts cupboards where farmers can have access to kit without waiting weeks for parts to turn up — time is money.”
The on-farm potential for robots is endless, according to Andrew.
“It’s not about automation, it’s about new farming systems — that is the true benefit of the technology,” he said.
For example, the robots can identify weeds in the paddock and spot spray, reducing the amount of chemicals used and costs. Spot spraying can also break the weed cycle and prevent reinfestation.
Weed-detection cameras have been around for years, but the uptake by farmers has been slow.
“Robots go slowly so the booms are more stable — they are consistent and really good at doing those boring jobs,” Andrew said.
RISE OF THE MACHINES
SWARMFARM has recently partnered with Bosch in Victoria where its engineering and design teams are building the robots.
“We’ve gone past prototyping and the robots have proven themselves in the field but now the commercial rollout needs to happen,” Andrew said.
“SwarmFarm needs to grow quickly and our first six machines are already committed to go out.”
It currently takes eight weeks to build a robot.
The first customers have been hand-picked to take the technology on to ensure quality control as the rollout takes place.
“We’ve kept marketing to a minimum because the last thing we wanted was to get people all excited before the technology was ready,” Jocie said.
“But we will take orders now for those who want to be early adopters.”
The price of the robots is undisclosed. They will be under a monthly operating lease that includes servicing fees.
Andrew said Australia was leading the world in robotic technology and would set the stage for how the technology was adopted around the world.
“Some companies are now too big to innovate,” he said.
“We are now in the process of raising investment capital to grow the business and are one of the only companies in the world that has robots commercially working on farms.
“We are real people and these robots have real dents and scratches in the side of them from working in the field. You can’t build anything robust until you are in the field.”
Andrew said SwarmFarm was a team effort. “We are building this technology for the world and we are focusing on things that make a difference,” he said. “We are extremely proud of that.”
How the Rise of Machines Will Impact Business Process Outsourcing
Reg Dutton, of EvaluAgent, discusses the influence that developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) are set to have on Business Process Outsourcing (BPO).
Over the last few years, we have all witnessed the dramatic rise in the implementation of a vast array of new digital services across the contact centre sector.
To start with, there were the automated services such as Interactive Voice Response (IVR), SMS updates, online customer reviews and robotic process automation. More recently we have seen the emergence of chatbots, whereby computers behave increasingly like humans.
There’s little doubt that machines are getting smarter by the day, and thousands of organisations across the world are now looking to leverage both automation and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
But BPOs beware. This almost obsessive focus on digital CX has some serious and potentially long-term repercussions.
Where digital CX fails to deliver
While automation and AI will deliver a series of short-term gains, they will quickly be followed by the realisation that technology simply doesn’t hold all the answers.
To start with, digital channels aided by the rise of the smartphone, actually drives a lot of calls. (According to the Harvard Business Review, 57% of inbound calls come from customers who went to the website first).
Furthermore, while technology will undoubtedly make contact centres more productive by taking over the more simplistic, mundane tasks; but when it fails or is unable to answer the more complex issues, it will be left to human agents to pick up the pieces and repair the customer relationship.
What this serves to demonstrate is that ultimately organisations will depend more on human creativity; the key element that will continue to form the backbone of a superior CX and a differentiated competitive advantage.
A positive caller experience wins customers over, increases conversions and customer acquisition rates, while promoting customer loyalty. By placing too much emphasis on cost-cutting digital CX, many BPOs could be missing the point; a far better measure of success is improving the key customer satisfaction metric, CSAT.
Now you’re really talking. Provide your clients’ customers with a great experience and not only will they love the organisation or brand, it will go a long way to making all their friends and family love it too.
BPOs, commoditisation and the purple cow effect
Even if a digital CX programme is successfully implemented, it will only serve to deliver standardisation across the sector. With most competitive advantages within the industry already commoditised, it should come as no surprise that delivering a superior customer experience is now regarded as the only way that an organisation can truly set itself apart from the competition.
How can your BPO possibly deliver your clients the competitive advantage based on a first-rate CX, when they all look and respond the same way as their competitors?
If you are in any doubt as to the validity of this argument, you only have to look to the retail sector to see how commoditisation led to a competitive difference based on price. The only companies that are now flourishing are those that have built a brand that offers a superior customer experience, such as Amazon, John Lewis or Waitrose.
How any self-respecting BPO can promote actions that lead to commoditisation is beyond reason, especially as they aren’t selling a product, they’re selling a service.
Many of you may also be familiar with the purple cow effect. You’re driving in the countryside, seeing normal cow after normal cow; then you see a purple cow. Suddenly you’re alert, you’re intrigued, and you’re more than likely going to investigate.
In the case of the contact centre, this purple cow will be human agents and human interaction; with its accompanying intuition, people skills, creativity, and complex problem-solving abilities.
Not only will consumers notice the difference, they are even willing to pay extra for such a service. A poll of over 2,000 adults by Harris found that 70% said they would be willing to pay more for a brand with a good customer service reputation. While 86% said, they would very likely switch brands after a bad customer service experience.
Use contact centre technology to enhance, not replace, the role of human agents
By focussing too much attention and investment on automation and AI, once again contact centres will fail their employees.
The sector has been employing technology with increasing fervour since the beginning of the millennium, mostly in the form of performance metrics and Workforce Optimisation. But instead of empowering agents, it has simply become a large numeric stick with which to beat them.
With disengagement now at epidemic levels, it is essential that technology is used to enhance the role of agents, not simply to replace them.
The good news: Leaders can build on a workforce that’s already highly engaged with digital and reshape their organizations to allow workers to flourish in a future augmented by new technologies in a way that drives real business value: productivity, talent acquisition and retention, as well as innovation and creativity.
The bad news: The clock is ticking. CEOs need to put people as the priority or risk leaving scores of workers, and their company’s competitive strength, behind.”
The best way to offer a differentiated and superior CX is to use new technologies to engage employees and help them to progress. The question remains; how do you go about attracting and inspiring the next generation of super agents who will deliver the level of CX demanded by customers?
With Workforce Optimisation increasingly failing, the answer to a brighter, more productive, more differentiated future lies ahead in the form of Workforce Engagement Management.
Workforce Engagement Management is about creating the right workplace conditions so that agents can give their best every day; committed to their organisation’s goals & values, motivated to contribute to organisational success, while enjoying an enhanced sense of well-being.
Through Workforce Engagement Management, contact centres can now introduce the management and motivational tools that will nurture a new generation of agent; engaged, informed, enthused and capable of delivering a first-class customer experience.
Race to the top, not to the bottom
Gartner has predicted that within the next few years, 89% of businesses will compete primarily on CX.
As a result, forward-thinking BPOs that want to lead the market and command a higher price need to start demonstrating that CX should be measured not in efficiency metrics, but in the increase in first contact resolution (FCR) and customer satisfaction (CSAT).
Organisations look to BPOs not for a product, but for long-term solutions and differentiation in order to gain the competitive advantage. By focusing too heavily on automation and AI, it will simply lead to a race to the bottom with the commoditization of the sector; the only comparison between BPOs being the price.
There’s no King Canute in this scenario. Not only are the machines here to stay, they will grow in number, with new ideas and advances increasingly encroaching on what were previously exclusively human-centric roles.
But by ignoring much-needed investment in people, BPOs are simply entering a race to the bottom. And they need to watch their step, because it’s a very long way down.

Herald View: We need to be prepared for the rise of the robots
THE spectre of robots playing an integral part in society has long moved on from science-fiction to a situation where it must be considered a realistic subject for debate. It’s a debate we keep putting off, considering it “futuristic”.
But that future is creeping up on us fast, according to leading expert Dr Ian Pearson, who predicts robots will outnumber humans by 2048. In tandem with his prediction, new research conducted by NOW TV, who commissioned the research to celebrate the return of Westworld on Monday night, revealed two thirds of Scots fear the rise of the machines, not least because of the possible impact on jobs.
Already, we’re used to their presence in manufacturing: spraying cars, packing boxes and loading lorries. But their future CVs could feature a far wider skill-set, including construction, farming, the military, administration, surgery, sales, finance and catering. In education, they might assist teachers in the classroom and do janitorial work, so our children would soon get used to them, a prospect that also worries Scottish parents.
Perhaps we are being overly pessimistic. After all, robots can carry out jobs that are dull, dirty or dangerous. They could increase output and national wealth. And, while mass manufacturing would be done by machines, more craft-based, idiosyncratic production by humans might prosper.
Still, the prospect of mass unemployment remains real. Increased wealth produced by robots might finance a universal basic income (particularly if companies are taxed on robot use, as suggested by Bill Gates). But, while “robot” comes from the Czech for forced labour, humans are not (yet) cut out for forced leisure. Most need to work, to be productive.
Robots are about to become a serious social and industrial issue, and this isn’t something we can leave to scientists. It’s not scientists’ job to run the country. It’s the job of government and, here in Scotland as much as in any other country, we have to begin planning for this development. That means considering questions of retraining, redundancy legislation, taxation (where we have the power), welfare provisions, even rewards for “voluntary” work.
It will also require thinking out of the box at which, for now, we have the advantage over the robots.
Rise of the Robots: Jobs Machines Can Do Better Than You
The robots are coming, and this time it’s for your job. They’re bypassing the interview process and heading straight for your desk, not to mention the desks of your co-workers. And it looks like they’re here to stay.
With technology advancing and the labor market evolving, the encroachment of robots is more widespread than you ever dreamed of. You’ll soon find them in your doctor’s office, behind the wheel of your car, and checking you in at your hotel.
Jerry ((((((Kaplan)))))), author of Humans Need Not Apply, says that their presence won’t always be noticeable. Some—like the ones greeting you at the bank or the department store—will look vaguely human. Others will basically be invisible.
“When they say the robots are coming, it doesn’t mean they’re going to look like people,” ((((((Kaplan)))))) says. “They’ll come in the form of distributed systems capable of performing a job better than humans can, or storing information better than humans can, or perceiving different patterns in cyber space that humans can’t readily analyze.”
((((((Kaplan)))))) attributes the rise of the robots to two breakthroughs in artificial intelligence: machine learning, which feeds off large quantities of data being inputted into computer programs; and sensory perception, which allows robots to take in information about their environment and react accordingly.
Robots have patiently waited in the unemployment line for the following jobs—all of which they’re now capable of taking on.
With advancements in artificial intelligence, there’s a possibility that robots will fill jobs in the medical field that require high skill and intellect, says Hod Lipson, professor of engineering at Columbia University.
How is that possible? While a doctor can see 10 to 20 patients a day, Lipson expects that artificial intelligence could allow thousands of patients to be treated in that same time frame, and for a fraction of the cost.
“It’s both exciting and alarming,” Lipson says. “Lots of lives will be saved with robotic doctors, but a lot of jobs will be lost. There are pros and cons to this.”
Robots are already working away in hospital operating rooms. If you’re getting knee-replacement surgery, for example, a robotic arm may help with the procedure.
Sanjay K. Gupta, medical director of the joint replacement program at Connecticut’s Danbury Hospital, says the device uses 3-D visualization of the entire pelvis to assist surgeons.
“It guides the surgeon to put the socket exactly in the way it’s intended to be put in,” Gupta says. “That makes the surgery very precise and very reproducible.”
Narrative Science, a Chicago company that specializes in machine-generated articles, is teaming up with media outlets to provide sports stories and earnings reports. For run-of-the mill coverage, it’s less expensive to go this route than to hire reporters.
How does it work? When scorekeepers email post-game data to Narrative Science, a software program called Quill whips up a pretty accurate story in a matter of minutes.
The same holds true for business stories. Even big publications like Forbes are getting in on the act, using the technology to summarize earnings reports.
When it comes to most articles, you won’t even know a human didn’t write them.
“The truth is that machines are much better at analyzing that kind of data than people are,” says Stuart ((((((Frankel)))))), CEO of Narrative Science. “Technology like Quill emerged to automate a task people are spending a lot of time doing.”
It’s expensive to rent out a helicopter to get some great aerial shots, but with drones, you can capture all the footage you need for comparatively little money. They’re also becoming indispensible for special events, weddings, and even exotic vacations.
Drones have become so popular that the Federal Aviation Administration is cracking down on unauthorized flights. Earlier this month, it announced a $1.9 million fine for a company that operated drones in restricted airspace over New York and Chicago.
But even with these restrictions, the use of drones continues to skyrocket, and startups have been quick to take advantage of the growing industry. Queen B Robotics, based out of WeWork Berkeley, develops software that allows a fleet of drones to communicate with one another, while FreeSkies, a member of WeWork Golden Gate, was founded to make drone photography even easier.
“Photographers and cinematographers will need hybrid autonomous drones that assist without limiting creativity,” says Jay Mulakala, co-founder of FreeSkies. “Drones are the next visual domain that is set to transform film from the skies.”
By now, you’ve surely heard of the Google Self-Driving Car. The Google X project is already forcing the government to consider down-the-line legal ramifications, and the Department of Transportation has given four states and Washington, D.C. the power to draft rules governing how these self-driving cars are tested and sold.
Ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft are wary of these changes. Soon, they’ll face the interesting dilemma of whether they should also deploy self-driving cars to keep pace with the latest technology.
But it’s not just cars that will be speeding down the highway without drivers; soon, commercial vehicles will also be operated remotely.
“The technology being developed will eliminate cars and trucks altogether,” ((((((Kaplan)))))) says. “There’s a likelihood that the role of cab drivers will be greatly reduced in the future. But the first to go will be long-haul truck driving because it’s the simplest thing to automate.”
Say bye to baby-sitters. Chinese company AvatarMind created the iPal to give kids a fun and interactive friend to play with while their parents are away at work. The cartoon-like robot on wheels made an appearance at a recent RoboBusiness conference in San Jose, California, where attendees had a chance to interact with it and admire its many talents. It can sing, dance, play, talk, and read with children, and has an LCD display and sensors that help provide therapy for kids with special needs.
Parents can use AvatarMind to monitor their loved ones remotely via smartphone, and even initiate a video call that uses a screen on the robot’s chest, says John Ostrem, the company’s co-founder.
Customer service rep
When you walk into a hotel lobby, imagine someone behind the desk handing you a refreshing cup of water and striking up a conversation. You’ll do a double take when you realize you’re talking to a robot.
That’s right: robots are taking the customer service sector by storm. They’re programmed to answer tons of tough questions that their human counterparts might not always know the answer to. And you’ll never see them calling their managers over.
The famous example is Pepper, a Japanese humanoid robot that has the ability to read emotions, react to its environment, and spark interactions with customers. Behind the design of these intelligent, wheeled robots—which, among other things, can recognize and remember your tastes and preferences—are Aldebaran Robotics and SoftBank Mobile.
Magali Cubier, global marketing and communications director at Aldebaran, says Pepper can actually increase traffic and engage customers.
“Pepper is not supposed to eliminate jobs,” Magali says, “but act more like another layer on top of in-store professionals to provide customers the best experience possible.”
[Your name here]
Someday, robots just might replace your physical presence while you’re away on vacation or on a business trip.
Double, a teleconferencing tool created by California-based Double Robotics, sits in on business meetings when you’re not there. A web-based platform and iOS app allow you to have a virtual presence through video chat. If you really wanted to, you could grab a seat at the lunch table, have a one-on-one meeting, or just roam around the office saying hello to co-workers.
Another way to roll is via Beam, a robot created by WeWork South Station member Suitable Technologies. Barack Obama used Beam this past summer during a reception at the White House. For the workplace, the upside of having Beam show up to your meetings is that it’s always ready to go. It doesn’t need a coffee or lunch break. Instead, Beam has a battery dock on its feet, which keeps you juiced up throughout the day.
Amid the rising tide of robots, there’s nothing for entrepreneurs to be worried about—so far, at least. “Robots don’t start companies,” says ((((((Kaplan)))))). If anything, they’re taking on work that requires the ability to retain a great deal of information or perform repetitive tasks. In doing so, they’re helping us focus on creating jobs we’re truly passionate about and actively pursuing them with a higher purpose.
Part of the hair-raising ride was captured on Officer John Cusack’s body camera. The camera, police say, fell off after the suspect made several “sharp maneuvers.” Surveillance video then captured the beginning of what turned into a chase through Broward during Tuesday’s morning rush hour.
It all started when police were called to Century Village because there was an unconscious couple in a car, according to police.
Cusack, a 19-year-veteran, found Thomas Cabrera and a woman passed out and a “small, clear plastic baggie with an unknown substance in plain view,” according to a police report.
Thomas Cabrera Florida Dept. of Corrections
The 38-year-old Pines resident had done eight months in prison for grand theft in 2014. A check of Broward County court records says his only brush with the law in Broward since then was a traffic ticket for failure to obey a traffic control device.
According to his police report, Cabrera told a detective after being read his rights that he left because he didn’t want to go to jail. He said he and his fiance were doing heroine and cocaine in the car before the officer woke him up, according the report.
“The Defendant displayed a clear intent by his actions to take the life of [Officer] Cusack who was in full uniform, operating a marked police unit, while attempting to flee from officers,” the detective wrote.
Under the guise of “peace” and “humanitarianism,” global institutions have been set up all over the place. But not only have these institutions been utterly ineffective both in preventing conflicts and in helping those in need, they’ve instead been used to relentlessly push for a globalist agenda undermining the sovereignty of all nations.
Intelligent people have long figured out that the U.N. and related institutions are nothing more than Jew scams.
The time is long overdue to stop funding these horrible money sink-holes.
Vice President Mike Pence told Christian leaders from the Middle East gathered in the nation’s capital for the annual In Defense of Christians summit on Wednesday that President Donald Trump has directed the U.S. State Department to stop relying on the United Nations to provide humanitarian aid to persecuted religious minorities in the region.
“My friends, those days are over,” Pence said, adding that the Obama administration paid more than one billion dollars for humanitarian aid, with the majority of the funding funneled through the U.N.
One billion dollars.
Imagine what could have been done for our people with that money. That money has been utterly wasted, not even really helping the people it was supposed to, instead fueling the corrupt Jew globalist bureaucracy.
“Yet the United Nations has too often failed to help the most vulnerable communities, especially religious minorities,” Pence said. “The result has been that countless people continue to suffer and struggle needlessly.”
Mmmh… I can taste those globalist tears.
Pence called it a “sad reality” that the main U.N. presence in terror-ridden places like Syria and Iraq is their flag posted on abandoned buildings in places where persecuted Christians are not even present.
“And while faith-based groups with proven track records and deep roots in these communities are more than willing to assist, the United Nations too often denies their funding requests,” Pence said.
“Our fellow Christians and all who are persecuted in the Middle East should not have to rely on multinational institutions when America can help them directly,” Pence said, announcing Trump’s order to the State Department to “stop funding ineffective relief efforts at the United Nations.”
If you want a glimpse as to what the U.N. does in the third world, just watch this documentary:
These UN bureaucrats are just giving out scraps, while enjoying $1USD negro prostitutes on the regular. We’re literally blowing billions of dollars on these kikes for no meaningful reason.
I mean, ideally we wouldn’t be spending any money at all on foreign aid to third-world nations, unless we get something in return. But at least managing these funds ourselves is definitely a small step in the right direction.
Their is no negotiating with people who in their minds believe you owe them some gibs. They see white america as weak, and due to white guilt, unable to defend itself from invasion and displacement of its people, white people. They will continue to demand your rights, privileges and property until we force them to leave. But the cultural Marxist and its leftist enforcers will not allow us to remove these people without a fight. The Left understands that in order to obtain power, they must flood our nations with non-whites who will vote left, low IQ black, brown and yellow people who they themselves are here to feed off of the predominantly white male tax payers. The enemy is entrenched at ALL levels of government, the military, and liberal corporations, they are the dying media and still control the minds of many of our people. The first step is to weaken the control over the minds of our people, which we are doing now, next we spread our message and bring our people together, and take back that which is ours by birth alone.
When this is all said and done, these people will pay for what they have done, it isn’t enough that we expel them, and end all trade with their nests (nations), we must guarantee that never again do they have the ability nor the will to invade our lands, and take what is ours. What they have been doing to our nations, we shall do to their nations, they attempt to breed us out of existence, we shall do the same to them. They stripped our nation of its economic resources and what belongs to our people, we shall do the same to their people and communities, they intended to replace our people and genocide us from this world, we shall return the favor and wipe them from the earth.
There can be no peace, until this world and ALL that is within belongs to the white man.
If you’ve found your way to this humble outpost of truth, you might have noticed the world around you is beginning to not make any sense. Up is down, left is right, black is white. Part of the reason for the chaos is the fact George Soros and other elites are organizing camera-ready protests, then bringing two sides of extremists together to clash while pinning the blame on one side.
This agenda has been going on for years. (Ferguson, San Jose, Charlotte, et al.) So, it’s worse than what happened in Charlottesville. What’s more, almost every “news” item one sees in the mainstream media is a farce, a marvel of the Hegelian dialectic intended to accomplish goals of elites paying talking heads to read propaganda before they swoop in like vultures with “solutions.” These false flags and psyops are designed to create division and to implode the remnants of the American republic. We are entering the advanced stages of a long-term elite plan for a so-called post-democratic, post-industrial world. It is to be a world constrained by a tightly controlled, planned economy. In essence, global Communism is its aim.
The irony that the U.S. and Russia have so dramatically switched roles in the world since 1991 is all the more astounding, in that the U.S. is now making concrete steps to enforce its brand of totalitarianism on the world and Russia is making strides towards democracy, nationalism, and national identity once prized by America.
It now seems the Cold War was a fight over who would get to take over the world first, not the trite freedom vs. tyranny narrative American statesmen sold us for half a century. The U.S. used the power of the free market to take advantage of the economic weaknesses of Socialism, only to make a stunning about-face once the Soviet threat died and the world lay before the American elite as spoil.
The bleak future of American-style global Socialism (and later, Communism) is what many have dubbed The New World Order. One of the key ways global tyranny is being implemented is through Agenda 21. Not enough people know the truth of what Agenda 21 really is, adopted by the United Nations in 1992 as a “voluntary” (it’s not) agreement to create a world run by the elite in which each citizen is as interchangeable as a piston rod (to paraphrase Howard Beale) and every bit as expendable.
Most think Agenda 21 is just another crazy conspiracy theory, although in modern times, conspiracy theories are beginning to make more sense than the unending stream of lies from corporate media.
Looking back, the transition from a free society to a society run by tyrants began 100 years ago with the creation of the Federal Reserve, effectively handing over the power to create money to a private bank. As the Rothschild family knows, and Nathan Rothschild once said:
Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.
The Barbary Slave trade culminated in 1 to 1.25 million white Christians being enslaved by black Muslims between 1500-1800
Indeed, those who control the purse strings make the rules. But, the ball really got rolling on the agenda to topple American democracy and replace it with worldwide tyranny after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the institution of mass feminism, and the scapegoating of whites for the crime of slavery (which all races participated in – the first American slave owner was a black man, and there was the Barbary slave trade in which Africans enslaved millions of Europeans between 1500-1800) as an offshoot of the Civil Rights movement. It’s no coincidence all this happened in the 1960s.
The current obsession with the slavery narrative in the brainwashed world of the corporate media is intended to start small, strategic fires around the foundation of the American republic with the removal of Confederate statues, then progress into a big, roaring flame culminating in the burning of modern Rome. The slavery narrative is the perfect Trojan Horse, since the Founding Fathers were slave owners when they formed the American republic.
The slavery narrative is intended to ultimately debase and destroy the United States Constitution.
No matter how noble the aims of the authors of the founding documents were, how they inspired the world and how rare the gifts they bestowed on the masses have been in the course of human history, the lobotomized narrative is the fruit of their labor must be discarded because it is “tainted” by their participation in an economic system that dominated the entire world at the time. Slavery, as horrible as it was, and is, was the entire world’s economic system for thousands of years. (Interestingly, only 5% of the African slave trade came to the U.S. and the rest went to Latin America! Yet another fact the Anglo-American media cartel refuse to acknowledge!)
The elite intend to enslave mankind by decrying slavery. This is just how diabolical the plan the American elites have for the world really is.
One of the NWO blueprints, in which a central planning agency decides where people can and cannot live
The supreme hypocrisy of media narratives is the fact talking heads condemn a world run by white men, but the New World Order will result in world run by rich white men once again – a 1% which is ostensibly the same 1% that owned slaves in the first place (99% of whites never owned slaves). If there plans are realized and the U.S. Constitution is dissolved, thus begins a downward slide into hell on earth. Here are key bullet points that are part of Agenda 21. It’s aims are anti-life and anti-humanity:
Ending national sovereignty
Constant surveillance of all activity
State planning of all land resources
Ensuring global equity (equal slavery)
Elites only defining the role of business and finance
Abolishing private property
Restructuring the family unit (i.e. destroying it)
The State raising children rather than moms and dads
The State choosing jobs for citizens
Restricting movement (Think TSA on steroids)
Creating “Human Settlement Zones”
Beginning mass resettlement and forced eviction
Dumbing down (even further) education
Mass global depopulation (killing billions)
All these goals are being worked on piecemeal, as the economy is inflated and then crashed in concentric rings with the noose slowly tightening around the West’s throat as living and working conditions worsen with each generation. The above goals are the antithesis of what America is supposed to stand for, and each legislator who has supported them in the past and supports them today are treasonous scum.
We must be this generation’s Paul Reveres, alerting the masses to the danger the American government is placing them in
We Are The Resistance
If Agenda 21 realized, we will live in a world in which the individual is finished. Man nor woman will have any control over their own lives, as electronic slavery is unleashed on the world via RFID chips. The State and the henchmen who finance it in the corporate world will have total control over the populace. Indeed, Agenda 21 realized could lead to the end of the human species itself.
How do we resist? We went searching for answers. Interestingly, the Jeremiah Project proposes one of the most viable short-term solutions. It offers a three-pronged course of action for those awakened men who see what’s coming. It says the awakened man must:
First, he must defend himself by protest, i.e., legal action.
Second, he must flee if at all possible,
Third, he may use force if necessary to defend himself.
The full treatise of the plan of action to resist the NWO is available here. As TNMM has repeatedly written, we must not let ourselves be divided any longer on matters of race, gender, sexuality, and other wedge issues designed by the planners of Agenda 21 and The New World Order to keep us fighting amongst ourselves while they dissolve any remaining freedom we enjoy. From the Jeremiah Project:
We must reject the collectivist idea of “divide and conquer” and instead accept ALL men as equals. We need to consider the words of Martin Luther King and reject the racist labels put on humanity by those who want to control and dominate us. There is no black, no white, no Hispanic, or whatever when it comes to humanity. Sure, there are those ethnic differences, but those differences are only descriptors of our heritage, not differences in human value. We are all brothers and sisters on this planet and we should live our lives that demonstrate that solidarity.
We should encourage whatever talents each person has and allow them the opportunity to express those talents in a way of each person’s choosing.
The controllers of the world know that in order to dominate and control the masses, the easiest way to accomplish this goal is to keep the people divided amongst themselves. Rather than expending valuable resources to conquer a society, the controllers instead pit one another against their neighbors and let them fight amongst themselves, thus destroying their unity.
Unity is strength, always remember that. Here is more sage advice to resist the NWO as the world descends a world electronically controlled darkness, unlike any mankind has ever known:
Disconnect from all Establishment media and other sources of Marxist propaganda
Seek out like-minded men and help build each other up
Self-educate and think critically
Learn to recognize the Hegelian Dialectic: Most “problems” are created so the masters can impose preconceived solutions on the masses, stealing their liberty and autonomy
Learn to recognize false flags, which have been perpetrated on the public for literally thousands of years
Patronize small business rather than multinationals and chains
Get your money out of the banks – fractional reserve banking means the bank only has 10% of the sum of all customer deposits available at any one time
Reduce the amount of taxes you pay into the system as much as possible by any legal means necessary – this usually means learning to live on less
Eat non-GMO food and organics when possible
Of course, these bullet points are only a start when it comes to planning a peaceful resistance movement. The bad news is, we absolutely cannot expect our representatives to do anything except blow hot air as we’ve seen with the Establishment’s moves to maroon Trump on a political island. (Whether he is part of the ruse remains to be seen.)
Mighty Mouse and The Gobbler aren’t going to save you – Ryan and McConnell are traitors to the American people
Republicans Are Complicit
If the election of Trump has proven anything, it’s the the Republicans are malware. They refuse to move on any of his agenda items despite having an overwhelming mandate as they control more of the United States government than the party has at any time since 1929. It is obvious they are complicit in impaling the heart of the American Republic as Democrat Socialists lead the way. Laurence Vance of the Lew Rockwell blog details how bad Republicans really are:
Republicans are worse than Democrats because they use libertarian rhetoric to deceive conservatives and libertarians into thinking that they actually believe their mantra of the Constitution, limited government, federalism, fiscal conservatism, personal freedom, private property, and the free market.
Just take one issue: the war on drugs. Republicans support it lock, stock, and barrel even though it is not authorized by the Constitution, it increases the size and power of government, it violates the principle of federalism, it wastes billions of dollars a year, it negates personal freedom, it infringes upon property rights, and it is contrary to the free market.
How bad are the Republicans in Congress? The few that are good are very, very good. The many that are bad are horrid.
The only thing Americans could possibly do to drain the swamp at this point is to elect an entirely new Congress, throwing every Republican and Democrat currently in office out on their asses. That simply won’t happen. Re-election rates for incumbents are high, despite the fact their approval ratings are low. The shuck and jive still works for those holding the levers of power.
Leaving America may just buy you some time
Go Minimalist Now, Expat if Possible
The best advice for those planning for the worst is to go minimalist now if you haven’t already. Destroy your debt. Stay out of debt. Live on less. Downsize from a McMansion to a smaller home. Don’t buy new cars. Stockpile money and diversify your investments. Plan for the worst, because the current economic bubble we are in will be imploded just as all the rest were imploded since the advent of the Federal Reserve, by design.
Future articles will expound on what men can do to safeguard their own lives and those of their loved ones.
If you haven’t made strides to expat and take the fruit of your labor with you, now might be a good time to speed up that agenda. At least it will give one breathing room and a buffer zone when the inevitable conflagration begins in the United States. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be here when Martial Law is declared and mass chipping of the public begins.
Falling back at least gives men time to regroup and come up with a new plan, since we are painfully behind the 8-ball as earnest efforts to de-legitimize the U.S. government begin. As we either try to weather the storm or fall back and regroup, when making our plans we must always remember one sage piece of wisdom. As the Founding Fathers knew: Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.
Locus says, “the only solution is the complete and total end of all involvement in the UN and similar organizations, and the withdraw of all western nations from any and all involvement with non-white nations. All political elites and corporate leadership and their families must be liquidated, deportation of non-whites (especially non-white males), and anti-white populations within the west must be relocated to controlled zones for reeducation for those who can be, and termination of those who refuse to submit to white male rule.”
