Week 17 – silence, Christmas and continued crisis

In Uncategorized on December 30, 2009 at 00:14

The courts in Florida is on Christmas holiday but the latest news is that the prosecutor has denied the defense access to the negociations between the Danish justice ministry and the D.A. office in Florida. How will the court in Florida ever be able to make a judgment in this case without seeing this communication? How will the court be able to decide if a DEA agent has committed perjury or the minister of justice in Denmark is lying? We are talking about not some documents – we are talking about THE documents essential for the case.

The statement from a DEA agent is that it was the minister of justice in Denmark who personally demanded the use of the Danish court system, which is very slow working due to reforms. The reform has meant a damage which most think would be dealt with in some 10 or 20 years. The minister of justice properly knew that and now people are question the purpose of such a slow proceeding which delayed the case so much that any kind of conviction in Florida would be ridiculous. Especially because the conviction will be annulled due to the extradition agreement which state that she should be returned to Denmark within 6 month after the court has given her a sentence. A typical waste of the money paid by the hardworking taxpayers in two countries.

It seems that that there is some kind of fashion among the European authorities where the deal is to bother the United States as much as possible. Italy did it by having a show trial against Amanda Knox. Denmark lured the DEA into taking the slowest possible path toward having her extradited. Maybe the DEA was set up by the Danish ministry of justice. None will know before the entire communication in this case between the authorities in Danish and the United States is public record.

When we leave the Camilla Broe case for a minute we have learned a sad news in Denmark today. A year ago they started a trial with stationary unmanned speed traps between Ringsted and Roskilde. While the goal was to reduce the number of people killed on our roads due to speeding, the trial had a very negative impact on our economy. More than 10.000 people have lost their job since the trial started due to decreased mobility. Now the politicians have decided to make the use of such devices permanently.

I have to ask how we can ever rebuilt our economy without regaining some of our mobility. Other countries will properly get the jobs instead of us because their citizens can travel faster.

I believe that it is an insult toward the Danish citizens and the future of the business sector is non-existing until the decision is reversed or we are able to get high ways between small villages as compensation for speed control they do in Jutland all the time.

If I were a foreign investor, I would leave and forget about Denmark at once. The chance of profit is non-existing.

Week 16 – analysis of the COP15 result

In Uncategorized on December 20, 2009 at 21:50

There is no news about the case against Camilla Broe in Florida. A hearing should have been conducted in our parliament but an intense pressure from the United States forced our politicians to abort the hearing. The situation is that a DEA agent stated that it was our minister of Justice who forced them to use our slow court system. It is a statement which our minister of Justice denies. If that rejection is correct then we are talking perjury by the agent. Unfortunately the statement from the agent cannot be tested because our politicians are too afraid to seek the truth.

At last the COP15 meeting stopped. Now we have lived with state of emergency laws for 14 days. 1,800 people were arrested. Phone tapping of the entire phone work has made a lot of noise and slow calls, but it resulted in arrests of some of the people who had planned the events outside the conference. Only a fraction of the protesters remained in Denmark to the end.

I believe that we did good warning people in advance that Denmark had declared state of emergency. I also believe that the plan to have only one bus for 900 detainees causing some of the protesters to become ill after so many hours on the frozen ground in restraints did sent so many to the hospital that they were not able to continue their protests. I believe that our police did an excellent job and send a clear signal to protesters worldwide that the climate issue is no longer something for ordinary people to care about.

It will be easier for Mexico to handle protesters as result of the events in Copenhagen. While the police in Mexico have shown that they can remove protesters permanently as they did in Tlatelolco, people should have learned that they have no business protesting at a COP meeting. We may have saved lives by having such an efficient police.

There are a lot of people who state that the COP15 is a failure. I don’t agree with that conclusion. COP15 was a success. A lot of countries came to Denmark with only one purpose and it had nothing to do with the climate. They came to blackmail the very countries which every year pays them a lot of money in development aid.

How dare they?

We welcomed them here regardless of the fact that they don’t matter in the global picture. We had people in the sector for personal services offering them their services for free. We served good food etc. Could they at least show some respect for their hosts.

There are few countries which have done so much for the world as Denmark. We supported the war on terrorism and made an efficient attack on the morale against potential supporters of terrorism.

Centuries ago we were among the countries which increased mobility of labor transporting a cheap work force from Africa which in fact made a country like the United States.

Lately we were among the few countries which paid their part to the United Nations in full. Not even the United States did that because they are naive and believe that such a World Wide organization can function without adapting local customs regarding bribing.

It is unfair to raise any kind of criticism against the leaders of the conference. Danes don’t follow protocol. We make things happen. Personally, religious and national feelings are not respected. Immigrants who have settled here know that. They could have made some inquiries before they flew in to the meeting.

There are some that believe that this Lumumba due was a paperboy for Communist-China, which for some reason replaced the elected Chinese government in the United States in the 1970’s. I hope that is not true, but should it be it is easy to punish every good coming from China with some extra taxes.

Anyhow it has been kind of funny to observe countries which believe they are something. Brasilia was a fine country in the 1960’s but assassination of business men (among them a Dane) turned it into a less interesting investment opportunity.

Denmark has a large export to India. Shipwrecking is something they are the best to in the world. Some IT-projects are also sent down there but it is tasks which are double-checked as there are now critical questions about the material. If an error is found they program the project without correcting the errors. I find that it is double standard to place assignments in India because the main reason that they can be so cheap is that they don’t care about the poor people in their society.

So the conference were destroyed from the inside and the thousands of protesters outside did only do it worse by stealing the entire attention of the media so the climate could be damaged by the actions of those politicians inside.

The ruling must be that the COP15 was a success. It resulted in the best possible result. I hope that all those protesters and politicians who teamed up to destroy it are ashamed.

Week 15 – Denmark – State of emergency result

In Uncategorized on December 12, 2009 at 21:42

The pre-trial process in the Camilla Broe case is almost at its end. An intense political pressure from US authorities apparently prevented a hearing in the Danish parliament. After the verdict in Italy in the Amanda Knox case accusations of Anti-Americanism have seen the light. Based on the past history between these two countries, it could very well be right.

19 people died in the Cavalase cable car disaster. Things were covered up by the Americans and none were punished as expected in such a serious matter. It doesn’t make the relationship between Italy and the United States better because the US government won’t extradite CIA personnel convicted of abduction in Italy.

A guilty verdict against Amanda Knox is a nice way to say that Italy can make things happen also.

With one country almost at the edge of redrawing from the war on terrorism, there is no need for Denmark to take a similar path. What kind of message would we as nation send if we contribute to revealing the employees from a police agency might have stated something which is close to perjury?

Remember that Camilla Broe was extradited based on our anti-terror act. We did not even question the contents of the charges brought against her. They could have played dice about the charges and we wouldn’t have questioned them. Even accusations of participating in the Kennedy murders would have been accepted.

If we start question even a small step in the war on terrorism, we could be the country who stops it. We could bring victory to Osama Bin-Laden. Denmark can as host for the COP15 not afford as a country suffering from Anti-Americanism.

It brings us to the hottest topic this week and properly next week also. As I speak 700 activists have been arrested. Fortunately most were foreigners because the police bus couldn’t take them to Valby Internment fast enough. Exposed to the cold some ended up in the hospital. The police was targeting some 15-20 hardcore activists and arrested 700 so the hardcore activists couldn’t hide in the crowd. It is a huge success.

On the political front things are not happening so fast. The goal for COP15 is to stop the undeveloped countries from making the same mistake as we have done in the western world. If we can prevent them from building any kind of industry and settle being farming countries or offering tourist entertainment the world can be saved.

Just to satisfy the third world leaded by Robert Mugabe Danish high schools students did a lot of charity work so schools in Zimbabwe could be presented as well-runned by their government. China could have been a problem but this week Denmark altered its view on Tibet and in general accepted the actions of the Chinese government the last 50 years.

But the G-77 and especially their chairman – a certain Lumumba Stanislaus DI-Aping – seem to be aiming for a failure of the COP15. We have tried the normal procedure to make them feel welcome and more forthcoming. However it doesn’t seem to work and our employees in our climate ministry have been sent home to student the writings of Georges Remi which is an important part of the curriculum in our schools. Somewhere in this description of the journey of a Belgian journalist around 1930 in Central Africa can we expect to find the key which can make us understand the rather obscure view the G-77 and their chairman represent.

We have an entire week in front of us with the COP15. I hope that we have seen the worst. I don’t know what is worse. That the police arrest someone or that some self-proclaims nobodies can ruin the entire COP15 meeting.

Week 14 – a final standoff

In Uncategorized on December 6, 2009 at 17:50

December 7, 2009 the next meeting in court will take place. The case against Camilla Broe raises an important question:

Who started the extradition process?

The DEA agent stated that it was the minister of Justice herself – Lene Espersen who demanded that the trial should take place in the United States and the Americans should ask for extradition.

This statement is denied by the Danish authorities. Did the Agent then commit perjury?

We have  to wait until December 10, 2009 before this question is answered. The parliament demands an answer and this answer has to be truth or she will have to resign.

In the meantime the Copenhagen Climate Council (COP15) is just around the corner. The state of emergency laws has passed the parliament, the dog cages the police intend to house the activists and bystanders in have been displayed.

Our guests – the leaders from a lot of countries will be served the best meals and have fine ladies giving them the services they so often require when summits are held in Copenhagen.

Now reactions from abroad are hitting Denmark.

L.A. Times attacked Denmark yesterday in relationship with COP15. They state that we are a poor example when we want to house this event.

But I have to state that we didn’t want it in the first place. The decision to house it was done in exchange with India because they are embarrassed to have relief workers from Denmark in their country. According to them they have not hunger or people in need in India so they wanted to prosecute those who travel there anyway. I do personally believe that they could have got the relief workers without trading the climate council for them because India is an important export market. Years ago we have a lot of ships sailing around the world but the crisis has meant that those ships should be taken out of work and at the Alang beach they have the best ship breaking industry in the world.

So we don’t host COP15 because we are the best country in the world to preserve the climate. We host it because none other wanted.

So please leave us alone.
