What Ails FIFA?

December 21, 2015

FIFA, the world’s football association, a corporation, has come into the crosshairs of the American Justice system. I inquire. My way, all the way down the Dark Pools of the New World Order.

By the word “Football” I follow international usage: “Football” was created in Britain in the Nineteenth Century, it involves striking a ball with a foot.

American “Football” is more prone to involve running with a ball one cradles, throws around and grabs with one’s hands, until one crashes into someone, head first. Its main interest may be concussion, as it promotes the idea that the more one bashes one’s brain, the better, and most successful, one deserves to be.

FIFA stands for:  Fédération Internationale de Football Association. The French name is already difficult for true Anglo-Saxon plutocrats, as it implies something not fully under their command. Hey, who would want such a good thing to come to an end? Command and order are everything. In the USA, those who have it all, and are in command, have achieved a level of relative income as high, or higher than in any of history’s most arrogant plutocracies:

The Rich In The USA Are Not Just Wealthier, They Are In An Other World. They Want That World To Become Yours, The Local Judge Will See To It

The Rich In The USA Are Not Just Wealthier, They Are In An Other World. They Want That World To Become Yours, The Local Judge Will See To It

What ails FIFA?

Money.

There are 600 million practitioners of Football in the world, making it, by far, the world’s most popular sport (Football is known as “soccer” only in the USA.)

Thus private television companies have been keen to purchase the rights for the Football World Cups. And they have been ready to spend whatever it takes, so enormous the profits from advertising to come.

The countries which have been able to muster large amounts of money to serve the World Cups monopolize these events. It takes a lot of investment in infrastructure for being able to organize a World Cup (several events with around 100,000 spectators each are held at the same time).

However there is a laudable desire to rotate World Cups among the 209 nations members of FIFA.

In the next rounds of World Cups, the USA and Great Britain were candidates. Both countries routinely organize Olympic games, and like money they spend and command to come around back to where they feel it belongs. Many of the TV companies which spend so much money on Football World Cups are giant Anglo-Saxon monopolies (or subsidiaries thereof), leveraged to giant, Anglo-Saxon dominated banks. (In other words, the usual puppeteers are pulling the strings.)

However, World Cups soon to come, were attributed to Russia and Qatar, infuriating those who view themselves as the true and righteous owners of the world.

So the British and American master puppeteers mobilized the means they usually order around, their intelligence services, James Bonds, international and national police, the NSA, CIA, FBI, “Five Eyes”, and the “Justice” systems, to remind the FIFA who was the boss. The uppity servants at the FIFA, including the usual French and Swiss suspects, were rolled out under a cloud of suspicion. Anglo-Saxon plutocracy is good at treating the innocent as if they were culprit.

This is why Russia’s Putin considers the head of FIFA to be a hero.

Naturally, genuine progressives, democrats and republicans want FIFA to be clear of corruption. However, American Football, the one played by crashing into other people’s brains deliberately, is much more corrupt than the sport which FIFA administers, while not under investigation by the authorities of the USA. In spite of the giant amounts of money circulating in all sorts of ways, and the medical and moral hazard it represents.

After all concussion is a huge problem in American Football, much more than in FIFA’s football (although it exists there too). And the quantities of money spent, and the way they seem to corrupt what should be the main function of education in so-called “universities” are alarming.

In general, the circulation of giant quantities of money in so-called “Dark Pools” and “Shadow Banking”, related to tax havens (most of which are in the Anglo-Saxon sphere of influence) is the essence of corruption nowadays, and the leaders of FIFA are very small players in that game. Focusing on FIFA is a way to divert attention, and make everybody believe, once again, that the center of the plutocratic empire is white as snow.

So one may say that FIFA is suffering not just from too much money circulating around. It also suffers from easily falling under American anti-corruption laws targeting non-Americans. And from having forgotten that the world’s most popular game should respect the wishes of the authorities and powers that be. One can play the game, as long as one follows the rules written in the USA. FIFA, by the standards of the USA, is a small corporation which forgot that it is there to serve much larger American corporations and interests.

Journalists linked FIFA leadership with corruption, bribery, and alleged vote-rigging pursuant to the election of FIFA President Sepp Blatter and the organization’s decision to award the 2018 and 2022 World Cups to Russia and Qatar, respectively. These allegations led to the indictments of nine high-ranking FIFA officials and five corporate executives by the U.S. Department of Justice on charges including racketeering, wire fraud, and money laundering. On 27 May 2015 several of these officials were arrested by obedient Swiss authorities, who launched a criminal investigation into how FIFA awarded the 2018 and 2022 World Cups. Those among these officials who were also indicted in the U.S. are expected to be extradited to face charges there. Switzerland is a country with no more population than the San Francisco Bay Area (8 million). The difference is that just one San Francisco Bay Area company is present all over the world Internet: it makes the “routers”, specialized computers that direct Internet traffic. CISCO (yes, San FranCISCO): get it?) The Internet was invented by CERN, now it is the source of profit for giant American corporations, mastering the world with ever increasing power, telling the president of the USA where he is going to sleep.

By far, the highest paid executives in the world are not at FIFA, but in the corporations of the USA. And that’s the entire point which FIFA forgot. The remedy would have been to attribute a World Cup to the USA.

As I listened to reaction in Europe, in various countries, European pundits did not follow the preceding approach. Instead they tended to marvel at the American Justice system, how thorough it was. Yet, in the end, a few tenths of millions of dollars at most circulated under the table. When an individual such as Elon Musk makes 12 billion dollars in seven years thanks to lots of subsidies of various types in the reign of Obama I, nobody investigates this hefty compensation: neither journalists, nor justice, nor what passes in the USA for intellectuals (MIT’s Chomski).

Europe is doubly at fault: first it does not have Federal structures of investigation and prosecution, as the USA has. Second, and worst, it’s naive to not realize that, had the head of FIFA walked around proudly with Obama, as Elon Musk did, the money, much greater amounts of money, would have circulated in the New World Order, where it belongs (at least that’s what the New World Order feels). The American system would then have anointed FIFA.

Thus instead of one possibly suspicious payment of 2 (two!) million dollars to the head of the European Football association, Michel Platini, one of the world’s greatest football player, ever, one would talk billions, but billions that would flow where American corporations exert control, and thus where American plutocracy commands. Trillions of  “payments” in service of the New World Order as managed form the USA, that’s not corruption, but the Free Market at its best.

American CEOs head the world’s most powerful corporations, and are paid like kings. It’s hard work to be so mean. And this is just the dusting of snow, on top of the iceberg. The real power if in Dark Pools. The corporation known as FIFA forgot its place in the pecking order. Let them eat cake in American prisons, learning, the hard way, who, in this world, is really the boss.

Who Needs Spanking? France, or Europe?

March 4, 2015

There is, in the Anglosphere, a systematic bias against the French Republic. The latest: an English organization “APPROACH” got France condemned by the “Council of Europe for the tortures allegedly inflicted in France on French children by sadistic French parents.

France, presently at war in several countries, just scoffed: the mood in France at this point is that there was not enough discipline, and too much laxity. No other country in the world is as obsessed by its own children as France. (France spends the most of all countries in the world on care and education of her children, until the age of 12, very clearly.)

Then I read a long article in Nature on the connection between corruption and the lack of innovation (the more corrupt a country is, the less innovative). That was also an Anglosphere based article. What struck me was that the article considered France half corrupt, so to speak. Half-way between the most corrupt European countries, and the less corrupt (Sweden). That was in contradiction with official European statistics:

Truth: France Less Corrupt That Sweden

Truth: France Less Corrupt That Sweden

Now this lie, that France is half-corrupt, is in a major article in Nature, the most famous peer reviewed journal, in 2015! Anglosphere anti-French propaganda never rests, and no lie is big enough?

On a philosophical-historical level, it is clear that France is much less corrupt than Sweden. France is a Republic, Sweden a monarchy founded by Napoleon (!), Sweden was Hitler’s most useful collaborator in World War Two, second only to American plutocrats viewed as a set. Sweden gave Hitler all the high quality iron he needed to make his weapons. In Spring 1940, France and Britain decided to act, and, invading through invaded Norway, were in the process of preparing to cut Sweden in two (to stop the flow of iron to Hitler), when France got invaded. So the French army, which had routed elite Nazi troops in Norway, was recalled.

Now, of course, Sweden is cooperating with the worst aspect of the USA, in the Snowden affair. And not just that, but a Swedish-American fighter plane is used as a Trojan Horse against the usual suspect, France.

The problem with Sweden is not enough spanking: the country collaborated with the Nazis like crazy, but never even examined, let alone punish itself (in France, 40,000 collaborators were executed, 200,000 condemned; however the collaboration of Sweden with Hitler was voluntary, and greed propelled, whereas France was defeated first, and then the Nazis were able to find criminals to help them; the fact that, to this day, Sweden did not self-spank about the whole affair, is abysmal; is it because spanking is outlawed in Sweden?)

But back to our British “Charity”: The “Association for the Protection of All Children” (APPROACH), a “Charity” in the UK, has the “right to register a collective complaint”. Charity to whom? Plutocrats?

“The aims and objects of APPROACH Ltd are “To prevent cruelty and maltreatment of children and advance public knowledge in the United Kingdom and abroad in all matters concerning the protection of children and young people from physical punishment and all other injurious, humiliating and/or degrading treatment whether inside or outside the home”.

There are, of course, laws in France against mistreating children. There is even a mighty state agency specifically in charge of this.

So this makes the following complaint irrelevant:

“The complaint alleges that France is in violation of Article 17 of the Charter because of the lack of explicit and effective prohibition of all corporal punishment of children, in the family, schools and other settings, and because France has failed to act with due diligence to eliminate such punishment in practice…. Millions of children are thus suffering violations of their right to respect for their human dignity and physical integrity.”

That’s purely defamatory: there is no evidence of corporal punishment of children in France anymore, than say, Britain. Actually there is evidence that British youth is exposed to more violence than French youth.

My own nephew, who lives in a tough part of France, where youth are pretty violent by French standards (Aix-Marseilles), lived in England as a teenager, and was astounded by the level of violence in South-East and East England where he resided. A particular problem in Britain is binge drinking among students:

At Least three Binge Drinking In The Last 30 Days For Students Is Very Violent Abuse

At Least three Binge Drinking In The Last 30 Days For Students Is Very Violent Abuse

So what is going on?

We have seen it before: the plutocrats in the Anglosphere (those who provide funds for “charities”) do not miss an occasion to attack France.

This is nothing new. France is generally accused of the “Terror” of 1793, but those who do this always “forget” to mention that the coalition which started to invaded France in Spring 1792 (that is, well before) threatened officially to “inflict an ever memorable vengeance by delivering over the CITY OF PARIS TO MILITARY EXECUTION and COMPLETE DESTRUCTION…”

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2012/01/07/how-genocide-starts/

So the “Terror” and Holocaust habit was actually started by plutocrats, many of them, if not most of them, based in England (and certainly England got the ball rolling against revolutionary France).

Ever since, France and her “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity” has been in the crosshairs of plutocratic “charities”.

Thus French cheese was declared dangerous (hey, French bacteria inside!), and the European Union tried to outlaw it, for years. Wonder why the French National front is becoming the party the French prefer? The first thing the National Front wants to do is “get out of Europe“. Whatever “getting out of Europe” means. But it may mean, in practice, that Europe stop getting its orders from people who, like Draghi (Economics PhD MIT, 1979) or J-C Juncker, have made their entire careers, serving USA plutocrats. And reserving European edicts to absurd orders about the details of daily lives, while giant plutocratic institutions (corporations, individuals) are financed to the tune of hundreds of billions of Euros every few months.

More generally, why would plutocrats want the French not to touch their children anymore? Because plutocrats want human beings infeodated to them to be as inhuman and robotic as possible: one is better served by well programmed automatons. The casual, down to earth, natural and life loving attitude of the French is the symbol of the rebellious spirit plutocrats fear: what do these French think, believing they can interact with their children without the “Council of Europe” watching their every move?

“APPROACH” wants to protect young people from injurious, humiliating and/or degrading treatment… So what about paying enormous tuition for going to school? This is now the case in England (where, under Cameron the plutocrat, university tuition has reached USA levels). Is not paying much of a family income to attend school injurious? Let alone degrading and humiliating (as most youth cannot afford it)?

Canada forbids spanking, but in just a small part of Canada, 3,000 young women disappeared in recent years (only one culprit was found so far, a pig farmer, who fed girls to his animals; but he killed only a few dozens; Canada denied for years that there was a problem). Sweden also, loud and clear, has outlawed spanking, but has alarming levels of violence against women (not overall, but for rape).

Overall Violence Against Women Worldwide: Less In France, Italy, Spain

Overall Violence Against Women Worldwide: Less In France, Italy, Spain

In countries not France, I have seen parents terrified apparently to touch their children in any way. What they do generally is play ball with them, in a sort of semi-formal way (“Hey buddy, here is the ball…”). That’s officially safe. But is it really so?

Once people are afraid to interact with their children, they leave free access to the propaganda of real malfeasance against children. For example contact sports (American football, rugby, hockey, even soccer…) with their concussions: plutocrats prefer their slaves decerebrated. Many of the thugs employed in High Finance have a past in very violent sports: it goes together. By playing “American Football” or Hockey, they have learned to abuse others, and they justify that by letting themselves be abused.

One ends with creatures obsessed by scoring, winning, while looking superficially correct, and, their brains being fracked all over by concussions and their scars, unable to think of anything much. Thus, perfect servants of the established High Financial order.

Nobody has died of spanking, ever, that I have heard of. But in just one week in the USA, hundreds of youth suffer concussions, and several die. From American Football alone. Clearly a case of lethal, or morbid, child abuse. But nothing that “APPROACH” will ever approach, as that would be reproached by its sponsors.

American children with marmalade brains, dying all over from football? Ah, but, they are not French! Thus, who cares? Is that the logic? It is flattering in a devious way…

Attack Context, Not Appearance

June 12, 2014

The term ‘redskins’ is viewed as a racial slur in the USA… by the self-celebrating “politically correct”. Bob Burns, a Black Foot Elder, says: “…”redskins” not okay with me. It’s never going to be okay with me. It’s inappropriate, damaging and racist. In the memory of our Blackfeet relatives, it’s time to change the name.” “Redskins” is the name of an American “football” team in Washington.

Contrarily to what its name indicates, American Football is also played with hands; steroid laden monsters clutch to their chest a squashed ball, running all out, until they bang into each other, thus demonstrating that brain concussion, and men running into men in tights, and manhandling them, is where it’s at.

"Red Skin": Original Native Semantics

“Red Skin”: Original Native Semantics

[What’s next? Plucking the feathers too?]

If “Redskins” should not (?) exist, semantically speaking, why should a game played by hand with a non-ball, be called “football”? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mR-tbOxlhvE&feature=player_embedded

Provocateurs often adopt the very values they condemn, be it only by contradicting them. In general, when one does not like some idea, there are three avenues to do away with it:

  1. Showing it leads to some blatant contradiction (mathematicians love that one).
  2. Showing it’s contradicted by fact(s), evidence (as lawyers call it).
  3. Showing its context is hare brained (the royal road to deep thinking).

An example of 1), 2) and 3) combined was the assault of G. W. Bush and its idiotic followers, against Iraq. Saddam Hussein, long the West’s attack poodle, and who had passed lots of Western-like laws, was the best the West could hope for in Iraq (thus a contradiction, and an hare brained context). That Rumsfeld who used to shake Saddam’s hand, wanted him suddenly killed was even troubling (what did Hussein know that one did not want him to say?).

Iraq, of course had no weapons of mass destruction (thus making Bush’s main loud arguments contradictory to facts). The chemical mass murders during the Iraq-Iran war were something the West was involved with in more ways than one.

Another example of 3), according to me, is that the (Standard) Big Bang leads to the Multiverse, something obviously hare brained (how many angels on a pinhead being the most ridiculous aspect of the Middle Ages that the Multiverse brings back, just worse!)

I more than see the point of talking about the holocaust of Native Americans, all the more as the mood that presided to it, is still in power. I have written literally hundreds of ferocious pages about it.

However, not to mention Red Skins ever again, is the best way to achieve a philosophical holocaust. In France, a country present in North America about a century before the English arrived, and much more respectful of “Indians”, the term “peaux rouges” is not derogatory. Some of the Plains Natives used an early combination of sun screen and bug repellent, giving them a red appearance. Naturally, they decided that it described them proudly (contrarily to what the video above suggests).

The worst thing is not insulting, but ignoring to the point of dehumanizing.

American semantics has a similar problem with “black” and “niger” (the Latin word for “black”). Senghor (Senegal-France) and Césaire (Martinique-France), both “black”, made a point that black was proud.

Making a big deal about appearances, behaving as if they were everything, is precisely what leads to holocausts.

“Red Skin”, a self-identifier,  if nothing else, celebrates early Native American, ecologically correct technology, let’s celebrate it, by keeping on mentioning it.

By refusing to even mention “Red Skins” anymore, we play into the ultimate act of annihilation. It’s a case of victims, embracing their exterminators’ cause.

Ironically, the name “Redskins” for the Washington football team was supposed to have a positive connotation, when it was chosen. A century ago, the team’s coach, “Lone Star” Dietz, a Native American, had brought to the team several other proud and authentic Red Skins.

And what of Iraq? Jihadists are taking over, Washington is talking of going bombing again.

Well, the USA is getting what it deserves in Iraq. Mr. Obama did not want to intervene in Syria against a clear war criminal (Assad). The Jihadists in Iraq are clearly a reaction to the annihilation by the USA of Saddam Hussein’s regime, and the various institutions of the Iraqi state.

Iraq is a case for the United Nations. All the more as the case of 3,000 year old Kurdistan is tied to it. I am all for the independence of Kurdistan, and carving it out of Syria, Iran and Turkey. Not just Iraq.
