The Great G7 Swindle

(The Real Agenda News) The countries that are part of the G7 today are the same that have been members for years. The leaders that allegedly represent their countries in meetings such as the G7, have been in power for years, too.
Every time these so-called leaders meet, their official goal is to “improve the economy” and “save the world”. At least that is what they say, and that is what the corporate media report.
It is a funny fact, though, that despite their “best intentions” they fail time after time, to bring the improvements they preach about before, during and after the meetings.
The 2016 G7 meeting is not an exception to the rule, when it comes to not delivering on the promises. The media tells us that, this year, the G7 Summit intends to address and solve the economic crisis that has taken over the world, as if any measure adopted during such a meeting would automatically mean a prompt solution.
According to mainstream media outlets, the goal this year is to plan on how to reactivate the economy. The leaders of the major economies intend to discuss the current economic situation and the implementation of a coordinated strategy for growth. Does that sound familiar?
This is what these “leaders” say every year, isn’t it?
So the leaders of the United States, Japan, Germany, Canada, UK, France and Italy want to make people believe that they have the intention and/or the solutions to deal with the economic recession the world is suffering from, even though they have done nothing to activate economic activity for the past 7 years. In fact, everything they have allegedly done through the policies they have adopted, has been to destroy the decaying economic activity worldwide.
During the first hours of the meeting European Council President Donald Tusk called for a common response to the refugee crisis, and in particular proposed to increase aid to displaced and to implement schemes in other host countries.
“The G7 must show leadership in all dimensions of the refugee crisis, because if you do not, nobody else will,” said community leader.
The Japanese presidency of the G7 has used the summit to announce that the country will provide 6 billion dollars in aid for countries in the Middle East between 2016 and 2018, which would go to areas such as education, employment, industrial development and to prevent the development of extremism.
US President Barack Obama said Wednesday that the Republican candidate for the White House, Donald Trump, has made world leaders “anxious” for his “arrogant” attitude and his “ignorance” on global issues.
“They do not know what level of seriousness they should take to some of his comments. They are uneasy with him and for good reason, since many of the proposals made reveal ignorance of world affairs or an arrogant attitude,” said Obama at a news conference.
All other meetings focused all attention to international trade, to discuss the implementation of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the current negotiations for a free trade agreement between the European Union and Japan, as well as areas of foreign policy and maritime security.
In this final section, the G7 plans to adopt a declaration on the need to maintain the “rule of law” in the South China Sea as a measure to curb China’s position in the region. America and his allies in the region beleive that China’s actions should be condemned as they might alter the territorial order.
However, it is unlikely that the text includes any specific mention of China or its movements in the area such as the construction of artificial islands or missile platforms, but the leaders are expected to urge the pursuit of a “peaceful resolution” of territorial disputes , diplomatic sources said.
The fight against corruption and tax evasion, following the leak of the “roles of Panama” is one of the highlights of the first day of the summit.
The meetings of G7 leaders will continue on Friday, a day which also involves those responsible for six emerging Asian countries and Chad, which holds the rotating presidency of the African Union and will focus on energy, climate change and development.
As readers can see, nothing specific is proposed by the so-called leaders of the free world to actually work for the revival of the economy or the security of nation-states. In fact, the G7 is a “pre-game” event to the Bilderberg Group meeting that will take place a few weeks from now, where some heads of state and corporate leaders do sit down to discuss details about economic policies they are willing to push.
This year, Bilderbeg attendees will apparently meet in a secluded area in Austria, futher away than ever before from public scrutiny. This is not a surprise in an election year, where American politics
