Derek Jeter goes to Davos to discuss Climate Change

NY Yankees Shortstop Derek Jeter will be in the hall of fame. He is very active in charities and helps out young kids. The last thing Jeter should do is break the Jordan rule and become vocal on politics.

In a surprise move, Derek Jeter was spotted in Davos, Switzerland. He was not there to raise money for charities or to hook up with foreign exotic women. Jeter was there to discuss, Climate Change. A Baseball Shortstop is now an expert on Climate Change! Even funnier, Pepsi is sponsoring him at Davos!

DAVOS, Switzerland — As global political and business leaders gather here for the World Economic Forum this week, New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter hopes climate change is addressed.

“I was in New York for Hurricane Sandy,” Jeter told The Dispatch this morning, following a private function in Davos, Switzerland. Jeter is here for the Forum this week with Pepsi.

“It’s just something that’s gotten so much attention,” Jeter said of climate change. “Regardless of how you feel about it, it’s something that needs to be addressed because we’re seeing more and more natural disasters each year, it seems like. Something has to be causing it.”

Derek Jeter may soon become Charles Johnson’s favorite baseball player, but this hurts his image with others. When I first read this article I was laughing. But this publicity stunt is very effective. Progressives get these athletes and entertainers to become spokes people for their pet causes. Do not dismiss Derek Jeter becoming a Climate Change spokes person. This could be very effective with low information voters.

As a NY Yankee fan, I am disappointed in Derek Jeter becoming a propagandist on AGW. Even worse is Pepsi promoting his new found activism. I wish athletes would just do their jobs and corporations not focus on making profits.

Maybe the Republicans can get Alex Rodriquez to discuss Sequester and the debt limit!

Transnational Elites planning to “update” Capitalism

The yearly meeting at Davos, Switzerland of the Global elites is very shady,yet the world’s political direction is influenced by them. This gathering is really a meeting of transnational Progressives. They seek to remodel the world into a Neo-Feudal state along the lines of Plato’s The Republic. These elites also have a soft spot for Islamic causes, since they also seek to establish a Neo-Feudal state, but one based on Sharia law. They don’t have our good intentions.

Now in a move to cater to the Neo-Stalinist Occupy crowd, they seek to “reform” Capitalism. The elites feel Capitalism is broken and needs changing.

Economic and political elites meeting this week at the Swiss resort of Davos will be asked to urgently find ways to reform a capitalist system that has been described as “outdated and crumbling.”

“We have a general morality gap, we are over-leveraged, we have neglected to invest in the future, we have undermined social coherence, and we are in danger of completely losing the confidence of future generations,” said Klaus Schwab, host and founder of the annual World Economic Forum.

“Solving problems in the context of outdated and crumbling models will only dig us deeper into the hole.

“We are in an era of profound change that urgently requires new ways of thinking instead of more business-as-usual,” the 73-year-old said, adding that “capitalism in its current form, has no place in the world around us.”

This is just a pretext by the Tranzi  Progressives. The same global elites caused the economic meltdown through bad investments. They used their political connections to get bailed out at our expense. They then created the Occupy Movement to justify their calls for “reforms”. This is power grab, pure and simple.

Snow Leopards

By Gramfan 

RARE snow leopard triplets have made their first public appearance at Basel Zoo in Switzerland.

The zoo is showing off the eight-week-old cubs today alongside their mother, Mayhan and father, Pator.

The pair were matched mid-January through a preservation program run by the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria.

Snow leopards are an endangered species and only 4000 to 6000 are believed to still live in the wild.

They are mainly found in the mountains of Central Asia and the Himalayas.

Three Snow Leopard Cubs Born at Zoo Basel

Uploaded by ZooBorns on Jun 15, 2011

This past week Zoo Basel’s newest furry residents began to venture outside of their den for the first time, proving to be bold and curious little cubs. Born April 22nd, the three little Snow Leopard cubs have stayed secluded with mom, Mayhan, in the den for the last two months and these pictures are their first debut to the world. While the cubs are still nursing, they are also getting practice at munching chicken, which appears to be more about having fun than dinner at this stage. In the wild this shy mountain dwelling feline is threatened by poaching and suspicious herders. Wild populations are estimated to be only 4,000 – 6,000 making these births all the more important.

Something tells me the present day inhabitants of Switzerland aren’t going to be paying the jizya any time soon.

Schlüer: Swiss Ban on Minarets Democratic, Not Racist

Ulrich Schlüer, of the far-right populist Swiss People’s party, leads the campaign to ban minaret construction in Switzerland.

Be advised that every party in Europe that opposes Islamization is automatically dubbed “far-right,” so as to smear it with a false connection to fascism.

Why Switzerland Has The Lowest Crime Rate In The World

Uploaded by crutley2 on Nov 15, 2009

When thinking about the mass extermination camps of a holocaust think..

The key to freedom is to be able to have the ability to defend yourself &, if you dont have the tools to do that, then youre going to be at the mercy of whomever wants to put you away.

Guns are deeply rooted within Swiss culture – but the gun crime rate is so low that statistics are not even kept.

The country has a population of six million, but there are estimated to be at least two million publicly-owned firearms, including about 600,000 automatic rifles and 500,000 pistols.

This is in a very large part due to Switzerland’s unique system of national defence, developed over the centuries.

Instead of a standing, full-time army, the country requires every man to undergo some form of military training for a few days or weeks a year throughout most of their lives.

Between the ages of 21 and 32 men serve as frontline troops. They are given an M-57 assault rifle and 24 rounds of ammunition which they are required to keep at home.

Once discharged, men serve in the Swiss equivalent of the US National Guard, but still have to train occasionally and are given bolt rifles. Women do not have to own firearms, but are encouraged to.

Update 28th December 2010:

Out of nearly 3 million views of this video there are 4358 thumbs up to 427 thumbs down. So, you could say, if any of us lived in any sort of real democracy in this world that would mean that only one in every ten people would like to keep gun control laws. Guess this means that we’re not and that the tyrants still have all the real power.
