(30.10.2019) Today is Wednesday and it’s Johannes’ 93rd birthday!
‘Johannes’ if the stepfather of my old friend O.L., who incidentally is one of the two or three most gifted photographers I’ve ever befriended.
Johannes has been a farmer all his adult life; energetic and hardworking until about 10 years ago.
Also he is, I think, the most generally likeable man I’ve ever known. He’s fair and broadminded, friendly and intelligent and ALWAYS courteus and positive, even though he was always very busy.
But I was reminded of the farmers lot in modern Denmark while strolling and enjoying today’s bright weather here in downtown Copenhagen. I happened to pass by a large, grey building near Parliament and noticed a particularly large surveillance camera lens in the door frame; ‘it’s so large it almost seem to strut out into your face while passing by’.
Wondering what kind of establishment needed that much security I looked for a nameplate, thinking it might possibly be a branch of the Rotschild bank or something like that.
However it turned out to be merely one of the many government departments that’s located right in the vicinity of Parliament.
The sign read: MILJØ OG FØDEVAREMINISTERIET. (Ministry of Environment and Food).
In the olden days (until abt. a couple of decades ago?) they called it LANDBRUGSMINISTERIET (Ministry of Agriculture).
But the word Agriculture (Landbrug) has now almost become an expletive in our small nation, of old renowned or even famous for the quality of its agricultural products.
One suspects that the name ‘Miljø og Fødevareministeriet’ was choosen as a compromise instead of what was possibly really wished for – f.i. MILJØSVIN OG FØDEVARE-MAD-SPISE-NED-I-MAVEN-MINISTERIET? (sorry – I’m just kidding, and cannot possibly translate it into English).
By the way – I believe Denmark is probably the only nation in the world – and correct me if I’m wrong, please – where national TV can feature an almost perpetual series named THE PEASANTS ASS (Bonderøven)?
But then again, isn’t Denmark – and especially Government-Denmark – now morally degenerate almost beyond recognition?
Today I’m carrying a couple of newspapers in my bag. Lets cast a quick look at a few headlines.
Firstly from today’s issue of B.T.metro (- a large, free sub-tabloid circulated in metropolitan Copenhagen).
The front page is dominated by a photo from the horrible wild-fires in California.
The actual conflagration in Cal. appears to be almost beyond comprehension. Thousend of houses burnt and hundreds of thousands Californians displaced. And many millions more without power for days or weeks. The nearest comparision is perhaps to the bombings in Syria?
But many US-americans have been really down on their luck, recently. Think of the hundreds of thousands homless. Think of the wast floods in the MidWest, that have devastated millions of acres of prime agricultural land.
I believe they have inundated an area at least corresponding to a small european state, like for instance all of Denmark.
You have to feel sorry for all the innocent victims, in the US as well as in Syria.
On page 12 there is a piece about banks turning up their fees.
It’s a long story, ofcourse, but the gist of the matter is irresponsible ‘money-printing’ by irresponsible central banks. Even the main stream press and main stream politics are beginning to catch on (see the following few recent sample quotes from newssites).
Only – yesterdays ‘money-printing’ is now called ‘Quantitative Easing’ or ‘Financialization’ – and perhaps other fancy fake names as well?
Thus money are basically for free for the elite (and especially the elite banks), making the savings of the middle class almost – and certainly increasingly – worthless.
Hence in quite short order the monied elite will own everything, bought by their fake, ‘counterfeit’ money – supplied basically for free to the tune of trillions! But only to the the elite – ofcourse.
(The ‘average, middle class man’ may believe he has part in the loot, by being able to borrow millions ‘for nothing’ to buy a house. But this is merely a trap; when interest are manipulated higher (and central banks do nothing but ‘manipulate’!)- then house owners are sunk: If interest is doubled the ‘cash-price’ of your house is basically halved).
In Copenhagen we have recently heard about one of these elite american investors, buying properties in Copenhagen City at a frantic speed with their ‘fake’ dollars-almost-for-free.
Like I’ve remarked a few months ago – perhaps Danish land and property will soon be more attractive to own as an investment for the billionaires than property on Manhattan? (hint: The climate in Denmark seems to become (relatively) increasingly attractive).

Now to yesterdays issue of B.T.metro:
The front page has a headline saying: ‘Minister will stop bonus-party at the Police’. On page 4-5 you learn more about the matter.
It seems there has been raised a public uproar about payout of a small yearly bonus to a few top policemen.
I’m not sure I’m able to really comprehend what all the fuss is about. But it seems there has been established a custom of paying out small yearly bonuses to most of the nations 14 regional police directors.
Generally the bonus is in the region of 10,000 dollars; but the director of police in Western Sealand just gets abt. 5,000 dollars.
Thus we’re not talking about bonus and/or other benefits to the tune of hundred of millions like the directors of for instance NET’s – that as far as I know has come about by asset-stripping formerly public assets?
Now the question is: How in the world can these – almost ridiculously small – bonus amounts cause almost a national hetz in the mainstream media?
Apart from the fact, that ‘hetz-instincts’ were always running deep in the general public, the answer may be that there is perhaps a more or less tangible cause.
Namely the fact, that the public has been increasingly exasperated by service levels from law enforcement. Often amounting to no service at all.
Police are reportedly rarely showing up if you are burglarized or mugged, not to speak of lesser offences.
But why is that? Is this really by fault of the police?
Hardly! Police are not planning and creating the economic and moral framework for their duties. The politicians are.
First and formost you have to blame your politicians for the lacking law enforcement!
Still it probably won’t happen that police will get noticeably more money. They will get whipped publicly – like it’s happening now – but they will not get meaningfully more money.
And why is that, you may ask?
It’s like this (you may learn the modus operandi, eventually – although perhaps not before it’s too late?) – but alas, here we go again.
The global supreme master-puppetering master-robots tell our governments liason officer (the dark-master-puppet-robot) what’s to do about police.
The dark-master-puppet tells our P.M. what the global master-robot has imparted unto him about what to do.
The P.M. then tells the reigning M.o.J. what to do and what to tell the police and the public.
And the M.o.J. gives everyone a song and a dance as ordered.
Because, mind you: The global mission may be Disruption and even Chaos? Police – and hospitals! – have perhaps most likely not been starved just to save money? They may have been and will possibly forthwith be starved WITH THE OBJECT OF CREATING DISRUPTION AND CHAOS – thus enabling elite predators to ultimately and terminally rob everyone else blind?
Remember the former cabinets ‘Disruption Task Force’ and ‘Burn everything down every seven years’? And cabinets these days are basically clones of each other, aren’t they?
But it’s getting late , and I would like to get home before dark (as I’ve just drawn out a few hundred dollars for emergency money).
Thanks for joining, and be safe!
