To Pass TPP, U.S. State Dept. Upgrades Malaysia’s Human Trafficking Ranking Despite Discovery of Mass Graves

–  To Pass TPP, U.S. State Dept. Upgrades Malaysia’s Human Trafficking Ranking Despite Discovery of Mass Graves  (Liberty Blitzkrieg, July 16, 2015):

When it comes to a choice between human rights, freedom and national sovereignty versus multi-national corporate giveaways, we know which decision the U.S. government makes every time. In the latest slap in the face to anyone stupid enough to still think the American status quo cares about anything other than money and imperial power, I bring you the following from TechDirt:

Earlier this week, we wrote about a troubling move by the US State Department to “upgrade” Malaysia from a “tier 3″ country to a “tier 2″ country regarding human trafficking. This move came despite a near total lack of evidence of any improvement by Malaysia. In fact, just two months ago 139 mass graves were discovered for migrant workers who had been trafficked and/or held for ransom. And the US ambassador to Malaysia had publicly criticized the country for failing to tackle its massive human trafficking problem.

Malaysian Government Wants to Turn Human Trafficking Camp Into a “Tourist Attraction”

Malaysian Government Wants to Turn Human Trafficking Camp Into a “Tourist Attraction” (Antimedia, June 3, 2015):

A human trafficking camp was recently discovered in Malaysia, roughly 100 miles from the border of Thailand. Sadly, Malaysia is among many countries notorious for involvement in human trafficking, which is protected by close relationships between the government and the organized crime syndicates that control the industry.

The government doesn’t seem to be doing a very good job pretending that they care, either.

Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim, an official from the Prime Minister’s Department in Malaysia, recently said that the prison camp was actually pretty nice and could be turned into a tourist attraction.

Malaysia accuses US and EU backed Ukraine regime of MH17 shoot-down

Malaysia accuses US and EU backed Ukraine regime of MH17 shoot-down (4bitNews, Aug 9, 2014):

  1. A Thursday article in the New Straits Times, Malaysia’s flagship English-language newspaper, charged the US- and European-backed Ukrainian regime in Kiev with shooting down Malaysian Airlines flight MH 17 in east Ukraine last month. Given the tightly controlled character of the Malaysian media, it appears that the accusation that Kiev shot down MH17 has the full backing of the Malaysian state.
  2. The US and European media have buried this remarkable report, which refutes the wave of allegations planted by the CIA in international media claiming that Russian president Vladimir Putin was responsible for the destruction of MH17, without presenting any evidence to back up this charge.

Former Prime Minister Of Malaysia Accuses CIA Of Covering Up MH-370 Disappearance

Former Prime Minister Of Malaysia Accuses CIA Of Covering Up MH-370 Disappearance (ZeroHedge, May 19, 2014):

It has been over two months since Malaysian flight MH-370 disappeared and still not a single credible trace of its final resting place has been found.

In the ongoing din over the confusion surrounding the recovery effort which has led nowhere, even the current Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak recently described the current rescue effort driven by satellite data of the suggested “location” of purported MH370 debris in the Indian Ocean as ‘bizarre’ and ‘hard to believe’. Further, he told CNN when discussing the satellite data which is the basis for the current search in the Indian Ocean that ‘To be honest, I found it hard to believe…. It’s a bizarre scenario which none of us could have contemplated so that’s why when I met the team…of foremost experts in aviation industry I asked them again and again “are you sure?”

Deep divisions over TPP as US pressures to close controversial deal – WikiLeaks (RT, Dec 9, 2013):

The US is ramping up pressure to secure a Trans-Pacific Trade Deal with conditions that could undermine the national interests of nations involved. WikiLeaks documents say talks are “paralyzed,” with the US refusing to compromise on disputed issues.

Anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks has released two documents revealing the state of negotiations for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). The deal in question includes 12 countries – the United States, Japan, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Malaysia, Chile, Singapore, Peru, Vietnam, New Zealand and Brunei – which represent more than 40 percent of the world’s gross domestic product.

5 Best Countries To Move To Before Collapse of the West

FYI. (And I certainly do NOT agree on those recommended countries being the ‘5 best countries’, but it gives you ideas what you could do besides sitting and waiting for the hammer to fall.)


5 Best Countries to Move to Before Collapse of the West (Activist Post, March 5, 2013):

It’s been two-and-a-half years since we posted a similar article to this. In just that short time, the national average gas price has gone up from $2.86/gallon to $3.72/gallon, a 30% increase. This is our updated list of where to bug out to.

That which mathematically cannot continue will not continue. Western countries, led by the United States and Europe, are in deep economic trouble. Massive debt levels are strangling their economies, and once great nations like Greece and Spain have been reduced to third-world status with staggering unemployment levels and almost daily violent riots.

Asian Buyers Snap Up Half Of New London Homes

Asian Buyers Snap Up Half of New London Homes (Wall Street Journal, Jan 22, 2013):

If you’ve just moved into a newly built apartment in central London, don’t be perplexed if your neighbors speak mostly Chinese.

Market-cooling measures in Asia have helped fuel interest in London’s real estate market—long a popular destination for property buyers on the prowl, says property consultancy Knight Frank. Last year, overseas buyers spent $3.5 billion on apartments undergoing construction in central London, up 22% from the year earlier.

Together, buyers from Singapore and Hong Kong snapped up nearly 40% of all such apartments in central London. Adding in buyers from Malaysia and mainland China, Asian buyers accounted for roughly half of all purchases. By comparison, U.K. buyers made up just 27% of all purchases of apartments under construction, according to Knight Frank’s latest figures. Such figures were generally consistent with those seen in 2011.
