De “draak”, of wel Mario Draghi, op z’n nummer gezet in Nederland.

“You Look Remarkably Calm For Someone Who Issues €2.5 Trillion Out Of Thin Air” – Dutch Politician To Draghi

Tyler Durden's picture

Used to a fawning press corps and clueless politicians, perhaps Mario Draghi was expecting a warm greeting, a series of softball questions from Dutch lawmakers, and some late night entertainment on Wednesday when the ECB president made a rare visit to the Hague. Instead, what followed, was an “unenviable grilling” from Dutch MPs for nearly two hours in the country’s parliament today which, as the FT said, left the usually implacable Italian confrontational and riled up as tempers flared and Dutch politicians probed Draghi on the ECB’s record of transparency, and attacked policies they said subsidized southern European countries and harmed Dutch pensioners.

The reason Draghi occasionally travels to national capital cities is to defend the bank’s actions: most recently to Berlin, in late September. That trip helped to soothe German lawmakers as the ECB prepared to extend its stimulus again. Draghi was hoping to do the same with Dutch lawmakers who have been far less critical of the ECB’s actions compared to their German peers, in the past.

He was in for a surprise.

“You still believe this [QE program] is fully within [the ECB’s] framework and you have not been doing any government financing, even though you [will have] bought €2.5 trillion of debt by the end of the year?” asked Pieter Omtzigt, a member of the center-right Christian Democratic Appeal, a sarcastic look spreading on his face.

Naturally, Draghi strongly defended the ECB’s decisions, which he said had helped support households throughout the region, including in the Netherlands. He also brushed off calls for a swift exit from QE.

“It is too early to declare success,” Mr. Draghi said quoted by the WSJ. “Maintaining the current very substantial degree of monetary [stimulus] is still needed for underlying inflation pressures to build up.”

Meanwhile, as inflation and growth has picked in Europe, up if only temporarily, Dutch and German politicians have been calling with increasing urgency for the ECB’s “extraordinary measures” to reverse course. The ECB’s balance sheet has already risen to an all-time high of €4.16 trillion and as of this month has surpassed that of the Federal Reserve, which stands at around $4.5 trillion.

Draghi claimed that despite the apparent recovery, his job isn’t yet done as “underlying inflation remains weak, and the bloc’s unemployment rate, at 9.5%, is far too high.” He also highlighted ECB research, published Wednesday, suggesting that up to 18% of eurozone workers are underemployed, meaning they would like to work more hours, or have temporarily left the labor force. In other words, more QE is needed.

That, however, did not sit too well with the Dutch lawmakers who, unlike their peers in much of the developed world, appears legitimately concerned about retirees who are collecting 0% on their savings (and in some cases, even paying the bank), and led to several heated exchanges, such as this one in which Draghi was asked about the possibility of a eurozone member needing a debt restructuring, to which the former Goldman employee snapped:

We don’t want to speculate on the probability of things that have no chance of happening. Why are you asking me that?

Confronted with the possibility of the Netherlands exiting the monetary union from eurosceptic MP Thierry Baudet, Mr Draghi sniped:

“The euro is irrevocable. This is the treaty. I will not speculate on something that has no basis. Our monetary policy has created the recovery…[and led to] 4.5m jobs in the eurozone so far. That’s the reality, the rest is speculation.”

“You’re saying there’s zero probability?” said Renske Leijten, representing the left-wing Socialist party.

“Our policy has created 4½ million jobs, that’s the reality,” retorted Mr. Draghi. It has also created the biggest social divide during peaceful times Europe has ever seen.

The attacks continued when one Dutch MP said the ECB’s stimulus might have made Draghi a hero in southern Europe, but not in Holland.

“It’s not my job to be a hero, just to pursue my mandate,” Mr. Draghi responded and justified his actions by admitting to peer pressure: “The ECB has done no more than other major central banks in the U.S., U.K. and Japan,” which also launched major stimulus programs in recent years.

The punchline, however, belonged to Lammert van Raan, a member of the left-wing Party for the Animals who said “you look remarkably calm for someone who issues €2.5 trillion out of thin air, especially when your chief economist says there is no Plan B.”

It is unclear what Draghi’s reaction was but it is safe to say he continued to look remarkably calm. Watch the exchange 1 hour 49 minutes in.

The end of the pointless meeting was amusing, not to mention symbolic: the Dutch lawmakers gifted Draghi with a tulip, a symbol of the Dutch tulipmania of the 17th century which led to the world’s first global financial crisis.

“We want you to look at this tulip before your meetings”, said committee head Pieter Duisenberg, who is the son of the ECB’s first president, Wim Duisenberg.

Meanwhile, this is what the current version of tulipmania looks like.

Miljardair Soros koopt Nederland

SorosLeaks: Miljardair koopt Nederland en de EU

Dit weekend lekten er talloze documenten over George Soros’ Open Society Foundation. Daarin staan bewijzen en bedragen over het handelen van de manipulatieve Amerikaanse miljardair in heel Europa. Ook in Nederland. Iedereen kan lekker grasduinen in de documenten, die keurig online staan bij DC Leaks. Want de Nederlandse MSM hebben er nog geen letter over geschreven.

Soros koopt Nederlandse invloed
Wij keken wel even naar Soros’ invloed in Nederland. Zo financiert de miljardair allemaal dubieuze clubjes in de strijd tegen “islamofobie” in ons land, wordt er een boel geld gepompt in onderzoek naar etnische profilering, krijgen “democratische” instanties geld om kiezers te beïnvloeden en trekt Soros al jaren miljoenen uit voor grote en kleine pro-islamitische projecten in Nederland. Alles van recente jaren in het verleden handig in dit overzicht te vinden (pdf), maar hieronder een korte opsomming van opvallende posten op de balans van de Open Society Foundation.

Online racisme-meldpunt Art1 kreeg $92.000 voor 2 jaar onderzoek naar etnisch profileren bij de politie, een onderwerp waar Soros sowieso veel geld in steekt;

Amnesty Nederland kreeg er bijvoorbeeld maar liefst een kwart miljoen Sorosdollars voor in 2013;

Ook uithuilbalie Meldpunt Discriminatie kreeg bijna 50.000 dollar voor onderzoek naar “islamofobie”.

Zelfs totale mafklapper Ineke van de Valk (1) ontving $8.320 om haar eigen islamofobie-onderzoek (2) te vertalen.

Maar ook democratische invloeden worden gesponsord door Soros: ProDemos, bouwers van de Stemwijzer, kreeg in 2014 $217.249 om ‘kiezers te bereiken’;

En wie nu denkt: ‘Dan ga ik voortaan wel naar Krouwels Kieskompas’. Helaas. Die ontvangt óók Sorosgeld;

In 2011 en 2012 ging er bijna acht ton naar Counterpoint, een Engelse organisatie die onder andere onderzoek deed naar hoe populisme verslagen kan worden en (Nederlandse) kiezers bij populistische partijen weggetrokken kunnen worden en

Eerlijk is eerlijk: ook het Anne Frank Huis kreeg in 2013 nog 25k dollar voor onderzoek naar antisemitisme op Nederlandse middelbare scholen. Maar in het geheel van pro-islamitische, anti-“islamofobische” investeringen is dat nogal een druppel op een gloeiende plaat.

De vraag luidt: Is Micha Kat een vrijmetselaar?

Aangeleverd door: Cor van Ruitenbeek

Is Micha Kat een vrijmetselaar?

Waarom heeft Micha Kat een schilderij van ‘Prinses’ Beatrix zur Lippe-Biesterfeld aan zijn muur hangen, terwijl hij pretendeert tegen de monarchie te zijn?

“Een beetje lacherig reageerde Kat, blijkbaar nog niet geheel ingevoerd in het occulte, dat zijn kop aan de muur al 20 jaar oud was, een keer gekocht op een rommelmarkt als geinig object. ‘Heeft geen enkele betekenis net zomin als het portret van Beatrix betekent dat ik in haar dienst sta.’ ”

Dat schilderij is een symbool van onderdrukking. Ik kan echt geen enkele omstandigheid verzinnen waaronder ik een schilderij van Beatrix in huis zou willen hebben, laat staan daar dagelijks naar te moeten kijken. Voelt Micha Kat de walging die ik over de monarchie voel niet?

Waar komt het geld vandaan dat Micha Kat in staat stelt semi-permanent in het buitenland in Bed & Breakfast hotels te verblijven?
Waarom praat Micha Kat over de aanslagen in europa alsof het echte gebeurtenissen waren, terwijl er keer op keer is aangetoond dat de aanslagen door de vrijmetselarij-overheden zelf in scene gezet zijn?
Waarom heeft Micha Kat het nooit over de dictatuur van de vrijmetselaars, terwijl hij alles van het vrijmetselarijbedrog afweet? Hij vertelde vol trots dat zijn opa een bekende hoge vrijmetselaar was. Alleen bleek dat ook zijn vader te zijn.

Micha Kat wijst constant naar pedofilie in de onaantastbare Nederlandse overheid maar houd de rol die de vrijmetselarij daarin speelt buiten beeld. Daarmee wordt er voorbij gegaan aan de ware oorzaak waarom zoveel pedofiele kindermisbruikers werkzaam zijn bij de ‘overheid’.
Komt het misschien omdat Micha Kat dezelfde Baphomet aanbid als de vrijmetselaars, en daarom net als Mark Rutte een beeld van Baphomet aan zijn muur heeft hangen?

Is Micha kat in werkelijkheid net als Joris Demmink en Mark Rutte een satanist die de zoon van de weduwe aanbid?

Fukushima wildfire revives worries over airborne radiation from “difficult-to-return zone”

(Natural News) On the evening of April 29, a wildfire broke out in a mountain forest near the now-disabled Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant. In a report by the Mainichi.jp, the publication stated that the fire started on the 448-meter high Mount Juman in Namie, a town in the Fukushima Prefecture. In response to the prefecture government’s request for aid, the Ground Self-Defense Force (GSDF) dispatched eight helicopters to pour water on the blaze. Far from being a normal wildfire, it raised concerns over the probability of airborne radiation spreading from the site. The area has been designated a “difficult-to-return zone” since the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. The high radiation levels originating from the power plant forced officials to bar entry into the area. It’s these high radiation levels that have sparked worries among the population.

In a 2016 blog post by Anton Beneslavsky, a member of Greenpeace Russia’s firefighting group, he noted down the dangers of forest fires occurring in contaminated sections of land. “During a fire, radionuclides like caesium-137, strontium-90 and plutonium rise into the air and travel with the wind. This is a health concern because when these unstable atoms are inhaled, people become internally exposed to radiation,” Beneslavsky wrote.

Formal regional government official Ludmilla Komogorsteva told Beneslacky that forests similar to the one in Namie were “ticking time bombs”. Based on her experience with the infamous 1986 Chernobyl disaster, Komogorsteva explained that “woods and peat accumulate radiation and every moment, every grass burning, every dropped cigarette or camp fire can spark a new disaster.” (Related: Fukushima radiation is affecting the health of the entire global ecosystem, scientist says)

However, an official with the Ministry of the Environment commented that where were “no major changes to radiation levels”, stated CommonDreams.org. The official then added they will “continue to closely watch changes in radiation doses in the surrounding areas.”

The cause of the wildfire is still unknown. According to the Fukushima Prefectural Police, a lightning advisory had been issued for the town of Namie by the Fukushima Meteorological Office on the day the fire occurred. They speculate that a lightning strike may have started the blaze, which has since consumed several hectares of forest.

The 2011 nuclear disaster, in brief

On the afternoon of March 11, 2011, an earthquake with a magnitude of 9.0 struck the Pacific Ocean, 80 miles off the Japanese east coast. For several minutes, there was shaking and rumbling with little pause. The impact of the earthquake caused Fukushima Power Plant Reactors 1,2, and 3 to automatically shut down to prevent further damage. Heat was still being produced within the reactor core, however. “This heat was caused by radioactive decay, and you have to keep cooling it. When the reactors shut down, the cooling was supposed to be by an external power source… but that failed too,” Jim Smith, a professor of Environmental Science at Portsmouth University, told the IBTimes.co.uk.

A horrific chain of events followed. Two external power sources for the power plant were disrupted, forcing workers to rely on 13 emergency diesel generators. A 45-foot high tsunami struck the coast 50 minutes after the earthquake and flooded the basement levels of the nuclear power station, destroying all but one emergency generator. Hydrogen gas began to fill the reactors and, at 3:36 pm on the same day, Reactor 1 experienced a hydrogen explosion and radiation spilled into the environment.

The rest is history, and the effects are still felt by Japan to this day. Authorities have since been dealing with an increase in cases of different types of cancers, particularly thyroid cancer.

What effects the wildfire may bring remain to be seen.
