NO ROOM FOR DUTCH FARMERS IN THE TRI-STATE ‘PLANNEDOPOLIS’

Turns out there is a lot more to the Dutch farmers’ protest than meets the eye.

Many farmers are convinced that the government’s massive land grab has less to do with reducing nitrogen emissions and everything to do with plans to transform the Netherlands into a giant, sprawling metropolis called the TriState City.

The TriState area will cover the WHOLE of the Netherlands and large parts of Germany and Belgium as well.

The ultimate goal is for TriState to become the capital of a new ‘globo-homogenised’ European continent, made up of high density housing, EVs, bike paths and food “manufacturing” hubs.

Any natural areas left over will be used as renewable energy platforms for powering the gigantic new “City-State”.

It would mean the end of the Netherlands as a separate country, with the Dutch people’s own unique culture, heritage and way of life lost forever.

Instead, they and many other Europeans are to be herded into the TriState’s ‘sustainable’, densely packed residences – akin to barracks.

There will be “green space” but NO “free space”.

Inspired by the UN’s Agenda 2030, WEF’s “Cities of Tomorrow” and the EU’s Cities2030, a primary goal of the TriState will be for food to be produced within the confines of the smart cities.

It seems “sustainable” cities means “transforming the way we produce, transport, supply, recycle and RE-USE food”.

Partners of ‘Cities2030 include the Gates-funded “Food Future Institute”, and BIOZOON, a company that has nothing to do with natural, organic farming and everything to do with GMO food and lab-made meat.

In order to make all this a reality, however, a lot of land is going to be needed.

Land that the state doesn’t own – the farmers do.

And it’s not just farmers either.  The Dutch government is now talking of raising property taxes from 0.45 percent to 2.45 percent.  Anything to make it harder for people to afford their own homes and get them into those barracks.

Fishermen are being targeted as well.

From next year, fishing licenses will be issued based on how environmentally friendly their trawlers are – solely based on the “opinion” of inspectors.

It won’t be long, the Dutch fishers say, before no-one will be permitted to hold a fishing licence.

The ‘old normal’, and everything in it, is to be torn down, scrapped.

It’s not just happening in the Netherlands, but everywhere.

I have no doubt there are plans in a drawer somewhere, for a TriState here in Queensland.

A megacity metropolis where everything will be controlled and micromanaged: housing, food, water, education, reproduction and health.

One large ‘sustainable’ Gulag.

With no room for farmers.

Or animals.

Or freedom.

I STAND WITH THE DUTCH FARMERS

There is no greater power in the world than the power of the people when they stand together to fight for their rights and freedom.

We saw it in Canada in January and we are seeing it again today in Europe, where Dutch farmers are refusing to back down.

Their brave stand against the forces of globalist tyranny has been taken up by hundreds of thousands of farmers, fishers and truckers across Europe.

The protests have provoked a mass outpouring of sympathy and support from the public, who are cheering the farmers on despite shameful attempts to smear them by the media.

This is the greatest mass movement for freedom the Netherlands has ever seen!

I stand with the Dutch farmers.  Their fight is our fight!

GERMANY’S GREEN NIGHTMARE

Remember ‘Energiewende’– the green energy transition that globalists held up as a green energy model for the world.

Between 2000 and 2019, renewables in Germany grew from 7 percent to 35 percent of its electricity.

German politicians were so convinced that gas and coal were stranded assets that they closed all their reliable power generators, without building any more to replace them.

Meanwhile, the enormous subsidies paid to the renewables sector helped make German retail power costs the highest in Europe.

No matter.  Energiewende was “Germany’s gift to the world” they told us.

In 2020, the German government allocated a record $38 billion to expand green electricity infrastructure even more.

On 7 March 2022, it earmarked another 200 billion for yet more investments in decarbonisation and “greater independence from imported fossil fuels”.

Germany’s Finance Minister Christian Lindner said the funds would be used to expand e-car charging infrastructure, hydrogen production and the construction of more renewable power sources in Germany.

The Minister called renewables “freedom energies”.

He said it with a straight face.

Energiewende has cost Germany $36 billion annually since 2015.  By 2025, the total amount spent will hit $580 billion.

But things are not looking so good for Germany’s Energiewende today, with gas flows from Russia at just 20 percent capacity.

In fact things are starting to look very grim indeed.

It might still be the height of summer, but Germany has little time to lose.

City officials are dimming or turning off streetlights – even traffic lights – while municipal pools and gyms switch off the hot water in a race to reduce energy consumption before winter.

German brewers have been told to stop making beer and there is talk of Oktoberfest being cancelled.

Landlords have turned down the heating on rental properties and asked tenants to take shorter showers.

Germany’s presidential palace in Berlin is no longer lit at night and the spotlights on public monuments have all been turned off.

Fifteen percent of German industries have already cut production, while a third say they will do so shortly.

One is chemical giant BASF SE, who says it is planning to cut the gas-intensive production of ammonia — a key component of fertilisers – due to skyrocketing energy costs rendering the business unprofitable.

Our economic system is in danger of collapsing,” the Premier of Saxony told Die Zeit newspaper.

“If we aren’t careful, Germany could become deindustrialised” he said.

Welcome to life under Net Zero!

A world where nights are going to be cold and dark, where hot water will be a luxury and sports stadiums prepare to do double duty as warming areas for Germans so they don’t freeze to death.

 

GOVERNMENTS ‘FIDDLE’ AS OIL SUPPLY BURNS

The world’s oil supply is under siege on all sides.

Not only has the market lost 3 million barrels a day of Russian oil due to sanctions, we have seen a string of fires, explosions, supply breakdowns and strikes take out oil refineries worldwide.

On Monday, South Africa declared a ‘force majeure’ at Naref, its last working oil refinery, due to ‘delivery delays.  That means SA’s whole refinery fleet is out of action.

In, Libya, oil production has collapsed from 1.2 million barrels a day to 100,000 barrels, while in the US, Executive Orders have closed the Keystone Pipeline and major fields off the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska Inlet.

Biden is now desperately releasing a million barrels a day from America’s strategic oil reserve, which fell to its lowest level since 1985 this week.

Nearly 1 million bpd of oil refining capacity has been lost in the US since 2020, with five refineries shut down and more closures planned.

Chevron’s CEO told Bloomberg recently: ‘there will never be another new refinery built on US soil’.

In Australia, Chevron announced the closure of WA’s largest oil field by 2025.  This follows the closure of two refineries and dozens of offshore oil fields including shutdowns at the Curtis Island project in Gladstone.

New Zealand protestors, meanwhile, have been camped at Bream Bay for 100 days calling on the government to reopen NZ’s sole oil refinery at Marsden Point.

The whole world, meanwhile, has stopped investing in oil.

Today, there are just 507 oil fields producing more than 500,000 bpd. Most are 50+ years old with 60 percent decline rates.

Replacing these fields will take years and trillions of dollars but despite the surging demand and exploding price, there is no sign anywhere of governments preparing to invest in exploration.

Oil investment peaked in 2015 at a trillion dollars, falling to 583 billion in 2016.

Funny that.

2015 was the year governments worldwide signed on to Agenda 2030 and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals?

What are the odds that hundreds of billions of oil investment were then cancelled or postponed?

Without oil, the world would grind to a halt.

Factories would stop running, Ships, trucks, cars, tractors and airplanes would all sputter to a standstill and rust.

It is the indispensable energy that powers everything from industry, agriculture, transportation and construction.

So where are the oil ‘resilience plans’ or ‘emergency preparedness strategies’?

There aren’t any.

We don’t even have the baseline analysis needed to prepare such a thing.

The one bright spot is that people are finally waking up to the fact that ‘green tech’ won’t save them.

The ‘Green New Deal’ is NOT working.

Just ask all those Germans madly chopping firewood to prepare for winter!

RELAX, IT’S ALL PART OF THE AGENDA …

Over the last twenty years, a “planning revolution” has taken place in Australia.

A revolution brought to you courtesy of ICLEI – (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives – Local Governments for Sustainability) – an international association of local councils, committed to implementing the UN’s Agenda 21/Sustainable Development at the local level.

What bothers me the most about ICLEI, is that it is an international NGO made up of local governments that hold private meetings on council policy that aren’t open – or accountable – to the people of Queensland.

Members are given webinar training sessions, regional workshops, international peer networking opportunities and a library of local government model ordinances, policies and resolutions.

ICLEI also represents Australia’s local governments at the UN’s Climate Conferences.

According to Australia’s Constitution, local governments are not supposed to engage in foreign policy.  That includes forming international alliances, treaties and/or agreements.

But, I’ve noticed that Australia’s Constitution no longer seems to be enforced.  Governments just do what they want regardless.

In any event, ICLEI initiatives have transformed Queensland radically on the principle that all human habitation must be restricted to land within the “Urban Growth Boundaries” of our cities, or “human settlement zones”.

Under ICLEI’s guidance, councils have revised zoning laws to allow high-density and small-lot development in urban areas, while imposing more and more restrictions on land uses in non-urban regions.

They want people off the land and into cramped, overpriced inner city apartments on the train line, where there’s no yard, no privacy and no parking.

At the policy level, rural and remote regions are being starved – or drip-fed – the revenue they need to maintain infrastructure and services.

Council roads are not maintained, parks and sporting facilities are left to rot, while police stations and hospitals are shut down.

Monies are instead diverted into ‘sustainability initiatives’ and ‘inner-city revitalisation’ programs.

Call it Smart Growth.  Call it Sustainable Development.  Call it Green Zoning, Capacity Building, Catalysing Change, Creative Pathways or whatever you like – it all amounts to one thing: a top-down, authoritarian agenda, with no input from the public.

Everything is done using phony neighbourhood groups and paid facilitators, trained at presenting a range of choices geared towards a pre-determined outcome.

It is only the illusion of ‘public buy-in’ they want.

Meanwhile, they have created so many planning boards, commissions, regional agencies, non-profits, roundtables, panels and committees, it is impossible for anyone to keep up with what is going on.

One thing, though, is unmistakable.

Everything that is happening, was meant to happen.

The plan is to restrict your choices, limit your funds, increase your anxiety, narrow your freedom and take away your voice.

MAYBE MICROCHIPPING AND BARCODING ALL OUR FOOD THE LAST FEW YEARS, WASN’T SUCH A GREAT IDEA AFTER ALL ….

The globalists, who already control the world’s financial system, are now moving to take  control of our food as well.

Over the last few years, State governments in Australia have been passing legislation aimed at creating a completely traceable and trackable food infrastructure system.

This full spectrum surveillance across the entire food chain was introduced as part of Australia’s commitment to the 2015 Paris Agreement – also known as Agenda 2030 – and its notorious SDGs.

At the national and state level, of course, the legislation was sold to the public on the pre-text of ‘food safety’ and biosecurity concerns.

Part of the new and innovative digital ‘Trust Architecture’ we keep hearing about – a Trojan horse if ever there was one.

Only now are the true dangers of this digital mapping of the country’s food chain starting to become apparent.

Digital ID is the final piece of the puzzle.

How easy will it be for Governments to link this already existing digital tracking of our food, to Digital ID.

If that were to happen, governments would hold unparalleled powers for controlling WHAT foods its citizens were permitted to eat (GMO) and which foods – ie meat – must be rationed, or banned as ‘bad for the environment’.

Worse, the State would have the power to decide WHO has access to food and who doesn’t.

By allowing the microchipping and barcoding of the entire food network in Australia, we have unwittingly put ourselves at the mercy of Governments and an increasingly megalomaniacal officialdom.

Private sector ‘stakeholders’ would, of course be fully complicit in all this, underlining the dangers which have always existed in the bizarre idea that Governments colluding with Big Business was a good thing.

SANCTIONS ARE HURTING US, NOT RUSSIA

The West banned Oil imports from Russia and the price of oil immediately skyrocketed.

Australia’s RBA Governor, Philip Lowe, said on Tuesday that oil prices have risen 66% since last year.

Australia, he said, is facing the highest level of inflation seen in “many years”.

Now countries worldwide are being hit with crippling fuel shortages.

Many are scrambling to put in place national transportation emergency measures, including the UK, Australia, Canada and US.

Air travel has been smashed as airports across the UK, US and Europe cancel up to 60 percent of their flights because they don’t have enough jet fuel.

Can someone please explain how all this is a moral victory against Putin?

As far as I can see, all it has done is make Putin, the Saudis, Iran and Venezuela much, much richer – and us, a lot poorer.

Why?

Because higher oil prices only make them richer.

The loser won’t be Putin, it will be US – the so-called ‘advanced economies’ of the West.

And it’s not just oil.

Thanks to sanctions, commodities are up dramatically across the board: potash, fertilisers, wheat – wheat is huge.  Nickel went up 250% in 2 days after sanctions were first announced.

Who’s going to pay for all this?  You are.

It will be the biggest tax increase of your lives.  And by the way, it could soon get worse.

Why?

Because, contrary to what you’ve been told, a large section of the world has not joined the West’s boycott and Russia is still able to sell its oil, wheat and gas on global markets.

Here’s the bigger truth.  World trade and the global financial system benefit countries like Australia, the most.

That may not be fair, but it’s true.  It is the basis of Western power and wealth.

So if you destroy it in an effort to ‘get Putin’, who are you really destroying?

You’re destroying the West, and that’s what’s happening right now.

When you attack and destabilise world trade and the global financial system, you are attacking and destabilising Western economies, NOT Putin.

The West’s response to the invasion of Ukraine is probably the single most damaging thing any group of leaders has ever done to their own countries and the world.

Not to Putin.  To their own people.  And a lot of small countries who didn’t deserve it.

One day when all the hysteria finally lifts, I think we will review this moment with clear heads and when we do, we will be horrified.

DOES AUSTRALIA ACTUALLY OWN ANYTHING ANYMORE?

Australia was the world’s biggest exporter of Liquefied Natural Gas in 2021.

So why are we now paying more for our gas than overseas buyers?

More importantly, why are we faced with a crippling gas shortage?

Ask the Queensland Government.

The days of enjoying some of the cheapest gas prices in the world ended when our Government began exporting LNG back in 2015.

Seems LNG exporters have not just been exporting our coal seam gas reserves offshore, but gas from conventional sources as well.

Companies like Esso and BHP Billiton have reaped a windfall from the practice, while domestic households and industry gas users have been left to compete on price with foreign-owned LNG exporters needing to fill their overseas export contracts.

The Queensland Government should have taken a leaf out of the Western Australian Government’s playbook.

It wasn’t stupid.  It passed a law requiring LNG exporters to ensure that 15 percent of liquefied natural gas (LNG) was reserved for domestic use.

This has kept gas prices in WA much lower than those on the East Coast and ensured a secure domestic supply for West Australians.

Over on the East Coast, however, we are hearing of various proposals for building multi-million dollar gas import facilities – presumably to import back what we sent offshore at 100 times the cost.

Just to add insult to injury, a new report shows that virtually all Australia’s gas projects, producers and facilities are now foreign-owned.

The Australian Institute researchers, who had access to the Bloomberg Professional Terminal database, has revealed the extent to which foreign ownership has been grossly under-counted in official figures.

Not only are companies like Shell and Chevron 100 per cent foreign-owned, but so are many supposed Australian companies like BHP, Santos and Woodside.

BHP is actually 94% foreign owned and 82 per cent American owned.

So a more accurate description for BHP, nowadays, would be the “Big American”.

Four LNG Export Projects – Prelude, Ichthys, Gorgon and Queensland Curtis LNG – are 100% foreign owned.

Even the least foreign-owned, Pluto, is 84 percent foreign owned.

The report calculated the average foreign equity share by project capacity is 95.7 percent, with Australia’s share, a measly 4.3 percent.

These foreign-owned gas companies are all funneling their profits to owners overseas, and paying little to no tax on any of it here.

Worse, offshore LNG projects are only subject to a petroleum resource rent tax, not Commonwealth royalties.

Something which analysts say has cost Australians billions of dollars in lost revenue per project.

THE END OF SAUDI AMERICA

Sobering news from yesterday’s Commodities Global Summit in Lausanne, with many oil market experts predicting crude oil could hit as high as $250 a barrel this year.

Most see the ban on Russian oil as long-term and potentially leading to a “crude supply shock”, which could devastate the global economy.

“Wakey, wakey” one told attendees.

“We are not going back to normal business in a few months”.

“I think we’re losing the Russian supply on the European side, for ever.”

Others said the ban meant as many as 3 million barrels a day of Russian oil could be lost to the market permanently.

The Head of oil and gas at Standard Chartered said:

“You now have to deal with this as a long-term issue which means YOU NEED TO FIND AN ALTERNATIVE SUPPLY.”

Easier said than done.

As the guy from Houston said, don’t expect the US shale oil industry to be riding to anyone’s rescue.

“The cavalry is not coming” he said firmly.

Why? Because it’s starting to look like the end is nigh for America’s fracking companies.

Less than 4 years after the ‘shale revolution’ reinstated America as the world’s No 1 oil producer, companies in Texas, New Mexico and North Dakota are now saying most of their best wells are tapped.

According to a recent Wall Street Journal review of the US oil and gas inventory, even if shale-drillers kept their output roughly flat, as per 2020 levels, many companies could only continue drilling profitable wells for a decade or two.

If they boosted production 30% to pre-pandemic levels, they would run out of prime drilling locations in just a few years.

So, anyone hoping America will ride to the rescue and suddenly start drilling like crazy to bring up all this shale oil and fix the world’s supply problems, is ‘dreaming’.

According to WSJ, they might be able to do that for 3 or 4 years, but after that they would run out of good core acreage.

There would still be some marginal acreage left, but essentially, the US shale party would be over.

So instead of trying to bail the EU out, the Biden administration should be thinking about what the US will do once its shale oil runs out.

Because if America runs out of oil, then we really will see a “Great Reset”.
And the America that emerged from that wreckage, would bear little resemblance to the one that exists today.

EU COMMITS ECONOMIC SUICIDE – CUTS OFF ITS OWN ENERGY SUPPLY

EU’s decision to ban Russian oil, with two-thirds to be cut immediately and 90 percent by the end of 2022, is mind-bogglingly stupid.

And it’s not just the oil the EU embargoed, it’s gas as well.

The EU is heavily reliant on Russia’s natural oil gas.  Several countries are 100 percent reliant on it.

Russian Energy Giant, Gazprom announced yesterday it had now cut supply altogether to Bulgaria, Poland and Finland, with Denmark next on the list.

Putin, meanwhile, is still sitting pretty over in Moscow.

For eight years he has built up Russia’s productive capacity and basically ‘sanction-proofed’ the whole Russian economy.

Europe, on the other hand, spent the same years in dismantling all its fuel infrastructure and replacing it with unreliable and expensive ‘green energy’.

And before you say anything:-  ‘NO’!  Alternative energies are not going to save the day here.

The EU’s Alternative Energy sector accounts for a tiny sliver of its energy consumption needs, most of which still depends on fossil fuel.

You will NEVER replace that consumption with solar and wind towers – you just won’t.  It’s impossible.

Putin and Victor Orban appear to be the only two world leaders who understand this.

Orban said joining the EU’s ban would have “dropped an atomic bomb” on Hungary’s economy.

Putin simply said the EU’s ban was “economic suicide”.

All of which makes you wonder, ‘what on earth was the EU thinking’?

MSNBC’s interview with EU President Ursula Von Der Leyen the other day, may provide a clue.

The woman clearly has NO idea how oil markets work – AT ALL!

And at the end of the day, isn’t that what this is really about?

A bunch of incredibly ‘unserious people’, most of whom have never held a real job, or produced anything of value in their lives, being gifted with decision-making powers well beyond their capabilities or intelligence?

Anyone who thinks I’m exaggerating here, consider this:-

On 2 March, OPEC nations agreed to release an extra 60 million barrels of oil to ease global fuel shortages.

It sounds a lot, but it’s only a blip compared to what Russia exports each day – 5 million barrels of crude oil.

When you take OPEC’s 60 million and divide it by five, you are left with just 12 days’ worth of what Russia exports.

Not much of a buffer is it!?

And yet that’s the situation they have put us in.
