“Welcome to Hell!” is the slogan with which G20 protesters greet the self-appointed leaders of the world to their summit on 7 and 8 July 2017 in Hamburg, Germany, under Madame Merkel’s auspices to discuss the calamities of our globe and how to resolve them. Never mind that the distress of Mother Earth has been mostly caused by those who represent the West, and now pretend to fix it.
How utterly arrogant – and hypocritical!
In the wake of the summit, police were beating on aggressively against the demonstrators, most of them peaceful, unarmed; but some of them violent and hooded, as old tradition dictates, so they will not be recognized as police themselves or patsies of the police. Many people were hurt, several to the point of hospitalization. And the meeting just began.
At the onset of the summit, Donald the Trump, the chief-psychopath, is running amok declaring with echo, “America First”- “America First” – trying to justify his decision for the US to quit the Paris Climate Accords. In a cheap attempt to hit Russia under the belt, he offered Europe gas sales, so Europe would no longer be ‘hostage’ to Russia. How arrogant, again. The Donald doesn’t seem to have a clue what he is doing, other than thinking the world is his puppet. By far most Europeans rather buy hydrocarbons from Russia than being in the bloody and ruthless claws of the United States of America – and those dark forces that pull the strings behind Washington.
It remains to be seen to what extent the psychopath-in-chief will have his European, Australian and Canadian vassal-psychopaths lined up and dancing to his tune.
Before the summit, ‘informal’ talks between the odd couple, Donald Trump and Angela Merkel, took place. They apparently focused on North Korea, Syria, and Ukraine — all countries where the US is intent to destabilize and push for ‘regime change’ – the sort of interference in sovereign nations’ affairs Trump promised during his campaign he would abandon as President. The dark one-eyed Masters didn’t allow it. And he isn’t man enough to stand up for what he was elected. Well, let’s face it – he could lose his job, or worse.
Nobody has elected the G20, nor the G7. ‘G’ stands for Grand or Great. That’s how they see themselves. Everybody takes them for granted, the self-appointed megalos. Nobody seems to question their legitimacy. People only protest against what they stand for. That the G20 are sidelining the official body, the United Nations, is of no concern. Perhaps, because the UN has itself become a puppet of the invisible Masters, manipulated by their executioners, the US of A. So, has any international court that otherwise could hold them accountable for the crimes they committed over the century, or longer and keep committing. The G7, embedded in the G20, are the aggressing driving force for wars, destruction, merciless killing and perpetual chaos.
The G7 – Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, UK and the US – all western nations (Japan follows the western game plan), are also the main creators of terrorism. They fund, feed, train and arm such reputed Islamic terror groups as ISIS / IS, Al Qaeda, Al Nusra – and others that fit the model of their war strategy (sic) of the moment.
Yet, it just emerged – would you believe – that the number one item on the rather fuzzy Hamburg agenda was fighting worldwide terrorism. How hypocritical: you create them, fund them, and you fight them. Lying to the people. How much longer will they swallow the lie?
This reminds of the prominent former German Chancellor, Helmut Schmidt’s words, shortly before his death, in an interview on terrorism to the German paper “Die Zeit”, on 30 August 2007: “I suspect that all terrorists, whether they represent the German RAF, the Italian Brigate Rosse, the French, the Irish, Spanish or Arabs, are relatively modest in their disdain for humanity. They are largely surpassed by certain forms of state terrorism.” – When the journalist asked back, „Are you serious? Whom are you referring to?” Schmidt: ”Let’s leave it at that. I really mean what I say“ (http://www.zeit.de/2007/36/Interview-Helmut-Schmidt/seite-7 – in German).
Only western megalo-psychopaths could have thought of ‘creating’, of nominating themselves into an alliance, of which the ultimate goal is to forge a New World Order (NWO), at times also called, One World Order, referring to an unspoken One Anglo-Zionist Government. That’s where we are headed; towards military oppression and financial subjugation of a small Zionist-headed financial and military elite.
It’s still time to wake up, to take our lives into our own hands, shed the mainstream propaganda and blood-thirsty lie-media, ignore them; get out from under the fraudulent privately owned fake dollar monetary system. There are alternatives available. We have to see them, then choose them. It is up to us to let go of the ever oppressing west. But each one of us, has to see the light, the little spark, that tells him or her – that there is something drastically wrong with the life we live, have been living for the last hundred years, that peace is just around the corner, but we have been duped into wars, after wars, after bloody conflict – and wars again. We are dozed with the idea that conflict and aggression is the Big Normal, as it is always inspired and provoked by ‘others’ – mostly by the east. Yes, we believe it. It’s comfortable, and it would be inconvenient having to admit that we have been living a lie – a blatant lie all or most of our lives. Admitting it, and standing up for justice, would be saving ourselves and civilization – maybe even humanity.
What and who are these G20? They are the G7 enlarged and disguised in their evil intentions, by 13 other economic power brokers, also often referred to as “threshold countries”, including Russia, China, Brazil, India, Indonesia, Argentina, Mexico, South Africa, Australia, South Korea, Turkey and the EU. Spain is a permanent observer. Of course, the (western) world’s key financial enablers and political institutions, like the IMF, World Bank, Federal Reserve and the UN with its regional sub-hubs, are not missing in Hamburg.
The G20 control two thirds of the world population, 90% of the globe’s economic output and 80% of world trade. Their agenda in Hamburg is semi-secret, except for the items that might interest the populace at large, like fighting terrorism. But certainly, under the guise of ‘security and terrorism’, they will also discuss, led by the Trump team, how to subdue renegades, such as Iran, Venezuela, Bolivia and, of course, the eastern most link of the new axis of evil, North Korea. Fortunately, there are Russia and China at the table, and Trump with all his arrogance, may have to watch out for not becoming the laughing stock of the summit.
NATO, economy and terrorism go hand-in-hand. Without terror no wars. Without wars no production of weapons, and without military-security industrial complex, the western world’s economy has reached a dead-end. The US depends for more than 50% of its economic output on the war and security machinery with its associated services. Europe, if she continues her status as a US vassal, will in no time march along the same footsteps. Hence, terrorism is a must. Peace is a no-go.
Soon NATO forces facing the Koreas? – Why not. NATO sounds good; the alliance of the willing – led by Washington, hiding behind the NATO emblem. In the land of the lawless, impunity is borderless.
Did you know, that at the opposite end of the globe, Washington’s foremost neocon vassal, the President of Colombia, has asked NATO for support in the fight against ‘delinquency’ – i.e. the FARC, with whom they signed a fake, make-the-world-believe peace agreement, largely disarmed them as part of the deal, and now FARC has been tricked. President Santos (the Peace Nobel – sounds like Obama and Kissinger!), and his Washington Masters want to completely wipe out that important peasant movement, the only resistance against the US supremacy over their land, and against Washington’s continuous support of the drug cartels.
Never mind that NATO has nothing to do with South America, or with Asia, or the Middle East, for that matter. The atrocious NATO killing machine will do their work in the process of subjugation anywhere in the world, while most people just close their eyes and ears, and remain mute. As the illegitimate G20 and G7 – NATO is just taken for granted. But be aware – it’s a criminal institution made for killing societies and subordinating sovereign nations. Washington’s current plan is controlling Russia, via NATO’s eastern European border aggressions, and China, by constantly provoking and threatening North Korea’s sovereignty.
That’s why the G20 will not miss talking about NATO prerogatives in war and conflict resolutions and, of course, in fighting terrorism. Surely, Russia and China will not fall for it.
After debating supportive mechanisms like wars and the lie-propaganda – Goebbels would be proud – economy and finance will have center stage. How to speed up financial globalization to attain in the shortest span of time ’Full Spectrum financial and monetary Dominance’? – The western economy is running on empty – its main thriving force is greed and instant profit by a few. Privatization of all state assets is part of the final run. The people are left behind. The people, the lot that needs to consume to fulfill for an ever-tinier elite the abject target of greed for ‘more and more’, the insatiable appetite. These people will soon vegetate in a sucked-dry space, robbed of social infrastructure and welfare.
What’s left is the enslavement by debt. To survive, people may commit to the ‘debt-row’, gradually converting into the death-row. As un-behaving countries are forced to do – swallowing debt against being fed minimal rations for survival. Greece is the epitome of this razors-sharp knife that slashed throats as well as the last goblet of the lifeline to survival. Solidarity is nowhere.
The dying beast is lashing out, right and left and above and beneath. It is desperate; itself on death-row, but if it must die, then dying we must all – the deadly grip of the rabies-diseased dog that won’t let go. And won’t let go. And won’t let go to the last minute – or until death reigns over us all. That’s the risk we are running. A nuclear holocaust where, as Mr. Putin said already on a number of occasions, nobody will survive. The G20 know it.
But never forget – whatever the G20 do and decide is without legitimacy, as they themselves are not legitimate. The police in Hamburg has no right to suppress a movement against the illegitimate power of insane dictators that formed a conglomerate of illegitimate gangsters.
The oppressive police in Hamburg, ordered by Merkel, to suppress dissent, is but a forewarning for what is to come when Europe is being fully militarized. For those who are not aware, there is currently a ‘ghost town’ being built by the Bundeswehr in collaboration with NATO, for hundreds of millions of euros, in one of Germany’s most modern military training camps, in Sachsen-Anhalt, not far from Hamburg. Starting in 2018, the artificial town will be ready for training NATO and EU military forces for urban warfare, to suppress possible upheavals and protests in the wake of neofascist economic measures – à la Greece – being forced upon Europe. Merkel and the NATO ‘leaders’ (sic) predict that the people may not just take it.
Therefore, the preparation to suppress possible dissent in European cities. Police and military will not shy away from killing their own brothers. We are witnessing how this is done, and has been done for the last seven years to an entire nation – beautiful Greece, the land that has given us the philosophers, mathematicians and scientists we still laud and admire – and the true concept of democracy which the west has used and abused for its trickery and deceit. Today, what’s left is a pipe-dream; and a powerful slogan being used by the most undemocratic tyrannical nation and her vassals to accuse those who do not bend to their dictate.
The G20s are playing the game as long as they are allowed to. Most of them are aware that it may be their end-game, that the future is in the East, that the West is passé, that it is just a matter of time before the West completes its suicide with greed, aggression and lies.

“G20 – Is the West Governed by Psychopaths?”
-Um, of course, all countries are run by psychopath, how do you think you get to the top of society by hugging? In a functional society the high-IQ long term psychopaths rule, in a dysfunctional the low-IQ short term psychopaths rule.
A, not by hugging that’s for sure but by printing fake money.
In Canada they get there by hugging…
And selling out…
from The Sociopath Next Door (by M.Stout):
….an imaginary society of exactly one hundred adults, in a group that conforms precisely to know statistics. This means that of the one hundred people in my hypothetical society, 4 are psychopaths – they have no conscience. Of the remaining 96 decent citizens, all of whom do have consciences, 62.5% will obey authority more or less without question, quite possibly the authority of one of the more aggressive and controlling sociopaths in the crowd. This leaves 36 people who have both conscience and the strength to bear the burdens of their actions, a little more than a third of the group. These are not impossible odds, but they are not easy ones, either.
“t the onset of the summit, Donald the Trump, the chief-psychopath, is running amok declaring with echo, “America First”- “America First” – ”
-The psychopaths are the low-IQ trash running around doing George Soros work in the streets, throwing rocks and attacking Trump, conservatives and nationalists.
You are not far from the truth regarding who takes the lead in the riots and plundering. Such events have been always hijacked by those forces in the dark to make the confusion greater and throwing the peaceful demonstrators under their yoke. Now, leftist and rightists are under the same umbrella of anarchy. That’s why the shock felt by the Hamburger citizens and by different politicians in Germany from different parties. Somebody is laughing in the shadow.
Maybe those crowds are doing the work of George Soros, maybe they’re doing the work of other paymasters (i. e. agent provocateurs) in order to push for more militarization of police. For the first time after WW II, since 2016 German military is allowed to assist the police in case of emergency.
German citizens got sold out by their politicians on privacy as well. Just recently the German parliament bypassed the Federal Council and voted for a (probably by purpose very vaguely phrased) law permitting security forces to spy on citizens – all in the same of internal security.
I don’t understand why you say G20 is illegitimate. All of them were voted by their citizens. All of them are the leaders of their countries.
I don’t see the problem in the biggest players talking to each other. For example, why should a small country like Nepal or Montenegro be invited to take decisions with the “greats” as you call them? In a school( in my country), decisions are made by a few professors that have experience. Should they invite 3rd graders to make decisions ?
The biggest problem I see with G20 or any G’s si that they have closed door meetings. Thats what i want to see. That is the information that should be public.
As the old saying goes, “The flak is heaviest over the target”.
While I concur in his low opinion of the EU leadership, Koenig’s overheated rhetoric indicates that Mr. Trump is over the target.
Greeks have a saying that fish always start stinking at the head. That’s why they are in trouble now.
Banksters plots and failures have caused the trouble of Greece:
If the world “leaders” were really serious about this “fighting terrorism” mantra, they would all instantly resign, and the feelings of terror and revulsion we have to fight every time we see their ugly faces would vanish. Victory! The war would be over!!!
“In the wake of the summit, police were beating on aggressively against the demonstrators, most of them peaceful, unarmed; but some of them violent and hooded, as old tradition dictates, so they will not be recognized as police themselves or patsies of the police. Many people were hurt, several to the point of hospitalization. And the meeting just began.”
-And you can have no doubt in your mind that every one of these leftist George Soros minions that breaks a nail will be constantly featured on MSM in the west to show how cruel and mean the police are against these little George Soros spawns. Meanwhile the people getting killed and getting their stores destroyed and getting mangled by the George Soros broodlings will get no TV time.
Please kindly note in the city where Airbus is at home, the builder of Eurocopters, there is not a single helicopter with a firefighting bucket to douse any fire during the G20 protests. Never mind that there must be at least one helicopter for every head of state on standby during this event.
For the millions being spent on security it was impossible to predict or to furnish fire extinguishers in large quantity around the perimeters of the meeting venue (sarcasm).
What you are watching is carefully orchestrated propaganda.
According to residents of the Schanzenviertel interviewed on video shown at Der Spiegel, the craziness continued for three hours before any policemen showed up. I thnk this video was made the day after the riot.
Strangely, now I cannot find that particular video, which shows bulldozers cleaning up piles of bricks and other projectiles pulled up from the streets and thrown at shop windows, etc.
OK, here it is:
“Hier war drei Stunden lang keine Polizei”
“The US depends for more than 50% of its economic output on the war and security machinery with its associated services”
-Interesting, what is the source for that claim?
Is the West governed by psychopaths? I don’t think so; just an average bad vintage of normal human beings.

In reply to the question posed by the title of this article…Why would anyone ask this question? The answer is more than obvious, in that their actions speak rather loudly. Do they ever listen to the wishes of the people? Do they ever really seek peace? NO.
Endless chest pounding. Now +60 years of age, and my entire life I have witnessed the same deal, over & over.
The author of this article admits he worked for the world-bank, he knows the game per ‘economic hitman’.
There is no end to the game, there is no end to the charade, most telling is the inability to even mention the demon’s themselves.
Zion has murdered the west since 1700’s UK invention of Cecile Zion Colonialism, Inc, aka Quigley “Anglo-Zion Hegemony”, the only remaining question is will they be able to become a parasite on Russia&China, or in fact are they already there?
No mention ever here of the vast Oil in NK that exceeds Saudi reserves, or the fact that NK has 90% of the world Rare-Earth-Elements, REM is required for all semi-conductor fab on earth, truly he who owns NK controls the future, all the spice on earth is in NK.
Zion represents a force not unlike locusts, and the humans are just waste. The more I age the more I realize that human life has no value on this planet.
So the question begs to be asked, what is to be done? The 4,000+ year old answer, per “Richest Man in Babylon” ( a book ), is that 0.001% humans make shit happen, 3% know what’s going down, and 97% don’t have a clue about shit. This has been a constant for eternity. We know that the 0.001% is ZION, no doubt, and the 3% at best can simply live as far off the grid as possible and enjoy their short human lives on earth.
Nothing Changes. Ever all remains the same, and the chattering class will always chatter, and the bread&circus class will always be entertained, fitting that USA is now led by the WWE ( fake wrestling ) ZIon leader of zio-TV.
Life is short people and the 97% will never remove their yoke, the 0.001% control the COPS&MIL, and the best 3% can do is lay low during the short lives.
If it wasn’t ZION, it would be another group, because the 0.001/2.99/97% rule is fixed, perhaps ZION messes up, so will be the future? Oligarch? maybe muslim, maybe chinese? What difference does it make? When in fact the majority of humanity is non-variant.
Being part of the 0.001% is easy if your young and make a concerted effort to rob the poor, being part of 3% is easy too, but it requires study. Thus and for all time the 97% will coast through life and enjoy the bread&circus.
Vast NK oil reserves? Can you clarify?
Maybe NK should let China know.
Do you have some credible sources for your statements? If so, this would add another perspective to the whole game that’s being played. Until now the most logical explanation is that NK is an excellent excuse for threatening Russian and Chinese defense by positioning personnel and ABM shield as close as possible.
These demons proclaim themselves gods:
They want to becomes gods of this planet and will mess with everyone’s DNA, and spiritual well being to make people selfish, isolated, cynical individualists incapable of human contact which won’t be necessary because they plan to make their own offspring human/machine cyborgs with immortal lifespans. Then onward to take on the universe in space.
Nice that you placed that link, I’ve also read this incredible story about this moron.
May I add to this, that sometimes still something ‘leaks’ from the very secretive Bilderberg conference. There are no minutes taken (wise, while John Podesta had all his mails stolen clicking on a phishing mail. The same happened to Hillary, it was even a porn link that she clicked upon).
Apparantly on the first Bilderberg conferences, the start speaker told the audience ‘We are God’s gift to mankind’.
And let’s add to that too the famous fragment of Madeleine Albright, without any emotion, answering about the loss of half a million children in Iraq: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RM0uvgHKZe8
Really, most of them think that they are sort of ‘special ones’.
Wait! Hold on! Is there anything new here? Psychopaths that would be the anglo/zionists not the so called leaders. The G20 is a farce – the only real leader is Putin and to some extent the anarchy ot Trump – not Trump but his subconscious (which sometimes bubbles to the surface) raw anarchy.
The fundamental problem of this article is that it simply expresses what we already know – know on the surface. But it is in the mud and under the rocks that the carpet baggers that control the west really live and manipulate the Eloi from below.
A much better analysis is to focus on who benefits – specifically the transnational occultist run corporations who are the real snakes. The oligarchy – ever bent – on expanding the feudal state via their political vassal tools. Where do you even start with the likes of Trudeau et al?
America, the “MASTERBLASTER” from the movie “Thunderdome” a giant moron ridden on and directed by Twisted Jewish Dwarves ……..
I don’t see the problem that the main economic players on earth are talking to each other. Most problems come while people are not talking to each other.
That a lot of them are ruthless morons, well, tell us something new. I’m actually more interested in the dark forces that give them their agenda’s.
And about those ‘protesters’: well, it’s not that innocent. Arsoning random cars, throwing smoke bombs in a child care, 160 police officers in hospitals – I would qualify that otherwise.
You didn’t really get it. He meant to differentiate between really concerned citizens who (try to or would like to) let us hear their voice peacefully, and fake protesters à la Gladio who joined or infiltrated the movement/protests in order to destroy it as well as serve further agendas.
I did get what the author meant. Peter Koenig stated, that most protesters are ‘peaceful’, the police are ‘harsh’, and just a few are ‘violent’.
However, that’s not what I saw. I saw an orgy of violence, with lots of people thinking that ‘protesting’ means it’s allowed to do anything you want. It’s cheered upon by the left-wing press in my country. I don’t see why arsoning cars, sabotaging rail traffic, attacking child care centres and shops, should be seen as ‘protesting’.
And as always, the effect on the G20 itself is, of course, null and void. It’s just making lots of useless damage to citizens that have nothing to do with it.
It’s cheered upon by the left-wing press in my country.
Which left-wing press are you talking about? If you’re talking about Germany, then I’ve got news for you: there’s hardly any wide spread left-wing press. Irrespective of that (nearly) non-existent press, I doubt that anyone is cheering on violent protest.
“It’s cheered upon by the left-wing press in my country.” (Rob)
“Which left-wing press are you talking about?” (A)
The one to the left of netanyahoo’s politics. It’s one of his standard propaganda memes, which for some “unfathomable” reason is also standard propaganda in israel’s colonials. Like pindoland, where there is zero non-zionazi press outside some very local sources or the web. Same for the uk and the commonwealth. Europe may still have a few survivors of the zionazi take over, certainly other regions of the “west” may, but I have no hard data on it.
Are you saying that the left-wing press is cheering on violent protesters?
And that this press is aligned with Netanyahu?
I don’t see how that would parse. I mean, Netanyahu is a far-right maniac, as far as I can see (except for maybe his “pan-nationalism” type of neoliberalism, which I guess technically is sort of left compared to “nationalism,” which the “left” now calls ” right.”) It seems to me t hat that leaves us with the fact that the protesters, since they actually probably align more closely with the “right” than the “left” by definition if they are protesting global finance, etc.
So who says the protesters (violent ones) are left in the first place? Did anyone ask them whether they are “left” or “right”?? Or the nonviolent ones, too, for that matter? They might all be so addled t hat they don’t know anymore whether they are “left” or “right.” Soros has screwed things up big-time!
we definitely are ruled by psychopaths at least in the Anglo-Saxon world. That is the biggest problem we have nowadays I think. They are great actors, often charming (not all of them are i.e. Hilary), they are great actors, tell their victims exactly what they want to hear…in order to get into positions of power.
Most importantly, psychopaths cannot care about others even if they want to – it’s the nature of their sickness.
I started learning about psychos after reading Steve Job’s biography. I was on a holiday in Greece and had nothing else to read – I expected some insights on design etc – I was really shocked to see how outrageously crazy he was. Then a friend told me he was a psychopath so I ordered all the best books I could find on the subject.
Having psychos in positions of power if like putting a fox in charge of a hen-house.
Nothing will change until more people learn how to identify psychos and prevent them from doing damage.
I started a blog on the subject but only had one post so far. I’d like to research and write more but I don’t have much time:
Irrespective of the success his companies had, Steve Jobs was mainly a marketing guy. “The Woz” and all the others who had been working behind the scenes (R&D) are the real movers and shakers.
I enjoyed reading your article. Most of the conclusions and opinions that you make, I agree with.
“The West” can no longer sustain themselves as before, they need constant wars and inequality. What is really disgusting is that they don’t even treat their own citizens well. It is really a war between corporate greed and humanity.
Thanks for a great article!
Yes, me too. I find Peter Koenig’s writings to be among the best to be found anywhere.
I’d have to disagree, the G20 has a good mix of countries – from large countries/ economies like the US, China, Russia, to middle-powers like Uk, Germany, France, to small countries like Argentina, Australia and Saudi Arabia.
It’s got the full mix!
If you invite 100 countries nothing of substance will ever happen – witness the UN for instance!!
“In the wake of the summit, police were beating on aggressively against the demonstrators, most of them peaceful, unarmed; but some of them violent and hooded, as old tradition dictates, so they will not be recognized as police themselves or patsies of the police.”
This is accurate analysis that says true facts. There are many particulars the author does not yet know but will. ie the dumbing down of all human dissent by means of newborn installed interactive brain chips. Thought up in Hitler times, finished in USA.
HOw do they actually get them into your brain?
Fortunately so many of these nefarious groups will go under when our whole civilization crashes. They won’t be the first of course but they will lose their agendas and control. For starters the grid keeps communication going as well as the lights and machines. It will fragment first as local areas cannot effect repairs. Some local solar powered areas will take over but only local. Shipping depends on letters of credit. There won’t be many of them as banking is all electronic, trashing the entire system.
They, as well as us, are on borrowed time. That’s one good thing. But the cost….?
Tell me – what was decided at the G20 that was so important violence was warranted?
That’s right. Nothing. No decisions were made in Hamburg.
Schmidt did NOT say that terrorist are “relatively modest”, nor that they are “LARGELY surpassed”.
The correct translation without any specific or leading emphasis:
“I suspect that all terrorism – regardless if it is the German RAF, the Italian Brigate Rosse, the French, the Irish, the Spaniards or the Arabs – differs little in their contempt for humanity. They are surpassed by certain forms of state terrorism.”
Small albeit significant difference. That is when it was time to stop reading, because when an author manipulates something as simple as a translation, I must assume that he manipulates everything else he authors, or at the very least is manipulative in his writing. No thanks, we already have the commercial media for that.
