Jetzt #Schattenmacht #BlackRock im #ZDF.
Um 00:45 morgens.
Werden sicher wenige sehen.
#Merz & die 1% wird es freuen!
2. #BlackRock currently has just under US$7 trillion under management & with #Vanguard they control two thirds of all #ETFs.

Now if BlackRock decides to sell a bigger share because the market turns you can quickly get a "run for the exit", A RUN!

#Markets #Stocks #Merz
3. #BlackRock has major shareholdings in many of the global Top 500 companies.

In Germany BlackRock is a major shareholder in ALL #DAX-companies!

How Extinction Rebellion 168 climate change zealots - incl. a baronet's Cambridge-educated granddaughter - are paid £400 a week to bring mayhem to our streets. Tory MP called on #HMRC to launch an immediate investigation into the XR tax affairs
mol.im/a/7566515
/1.
Paid XR activists who call for collective guilt & punitive #taxes on the western #taxpayer are enabling new breed of green capitalism, that make select few fabulously rich, while the rest of us choke down meatless hamburgers & pay our #politicians to tax us into oblivion
/2.
Climate Mobilization’s call to action has also managed to unite leftists & anti-capitalists with the global elite. Extinction Rebellion’s call for “net zero” atmospheric carbon is shared by The World Bank, and a host of neoliberal think-tanks & financiers

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.

Let’s focus on growing the conversation and education surrounding pension reform to #StopThePensionCrisis! Our publication Unaccountable and Unaffordable is OFFICIALLY LIVE HERE: bit.ly/2uiUCh6
Did you know over 7 million state employees pay into state pension programs, but their retirement funds are $6 trillion short? #UnaccountableUnaffordable #Pensions bit.ly/2uiUCh6
If states don’t take action, state employees and residents will face a pension crisis of broken retirement promises, increased taxes or, worse: both. #UnaccountableUnaffordable #ALECIdeas

"The Homestead "temporary influx facility" is the largest shelter for migrant children in the country. Homestead is the only such facility run by a for-profit corporation. It is also the only one that receives no oversight from state regulators."
"The operator is Comprehensive Health Services. The FL-based company dispatched medical teams to the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina, to Haiti after the earthquake, & to Balad Air Base in Iraq. And in 2016, it entered the migrant shelter business." n.pr/2RUd2y4
"The current Homestead contract with the Department of Health and Human Services is worth up to $220 million."

The landmark #SacharCommittee report that collected & analysed data on the social,economic & educational status of Muslims in India is now available in our resource section. Specifically,it tried to gauge if & why Muslims are under-represented in govt departments & other spheres.
Here are some of its findings. ruralindiaonline.org/resources/soci…
The 2001 Census showed that #literacy rates were low among Muslims, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes.
The perception that religious conservatism among Muslims is a major factor for not accessing #education is incorrect. As with many Indians, the main reason for ‘educational backwardness’ of Muslims is abject poverty, which forces many children to drop out of school.

On the #Gauland-interview: It's the role of the press to ask difficult questions (which #BerlinDirekt does with other candidates as well).

It is not the fault of the #ZDF when the #AfD still has NOT determined clear (or any) policies on #pensions & other social issues!
@Futureworldxxl @WirtschaftDE @frazionetoskana @tbgstephen @crypt_ghost @ThomasGBauer @Thomas190163 @m_aus_s @Patriotenfrank @webaxvita @ReneTruninger @jaegermeisterl @SamanthaMller16 @sabine_m_b 2. As I stated before: The #AfD can not win on the medium or long term with just #MerkelMussWeg & #RefugeesOut. Security and Law & Order (with anti-#EU) may be the main driver of growth, but the AfD needs to find answers to other issues as well! It had 5 years to do so!
@Futureworldxxl @WirtschaftDE @frazionetoskana @tbgstephen @crypt_ghost @ThomasGBauer @Thomas190163 @m_aus_s @Patriotenfrank @webaxvita @ReneTruninger @jaegermeisterl @SamanthaMller16 @sabine_m_b 3. It is also clear to me that the #AfD tries to avoid these topics. Why? Because #Gauland, #VonStorch & Co know that it could divide the #AfD - Von Storch & #Meuthen sound like a right #FDP (on social issues): This will not please blue collar voters & many protest voters!

(2/16) Vimla Devi from Murhu Jharkhand explains how she has been running pillar to post to find out about her pensions. She last received them in Sept. 2017.

(3/16) A team from @rozi_roti, when investigating the issue, find out that the money is being sent to an Airtel payment account that Vimla knew nothing about. Here is proof of the same.

1) Anem a obrir un FIL sobre un tema estelar. Les pensions. Els partits unionistes utilitzen com a argument de campanya que perillarien les pensions en una Catalunya independent. El gran problema és que Espanya segurament no podrà pagar les pensions entre 2018 i 2019.
2) Preciso, pagar pagarà. El problema com sempre és quant pagarà. I no podrà garantir les prestacions actuals. Haurà de retallar. Encara que Catalunya continuï dins del sistema espanyol. Recordem uns pocs conceptes bàsics del funcionament del sistema de pensions.
3) El sistema de pensions actuals és de repartiment. Els treballadors actuals paguen les pensions actuals. La salut del sistema depèn, llavors, dels següents paràmetres: a) Quants treballadors contribueixen per cada pensionista; b) Quin és el salari mig dels treballadors;
