Why the NWO forum? Because THEY are better than us apparently. So much so that they can park those private jets at the Military Base.

Do as we say and not as we do seems to be the way these people think and using 1700 private jets to get to a World Economic Forum proves that. Especially when Global Warming is on the topic list.


www.activistpost.com...
A squadron of 1,700 private jets are rumbling into Davos, Switzerland, this week to discuss global warming and other issues as the annual World Economic Forum gets underway. The influx of private jets is so great, the Swiss Armed Forces has been forced to open up a military air base for the first time ever to absorb all the super rich flying their private jets into the event, reports Newsweek.

“Decision-makers meeting in Davos must focus on ways to reduce climate risk while building more efficient, cleaner, and lower-carbon economies,” former Mexican president Felipe Calderon told USA Today.


Hypocrisy is rampant my friends:


www.newsweek.com...
Another big theme of the mega-rich confab will be combating “income inequality” and how the world’s rich can pay their fair share to reduce the gap between top earners and the lower class. Admission price for Davos: roughly $40,000 a ticket.

The World Economic Forum will also feature discussions on gender equality and opportunities for women. According to the World Economic Forum’s own statistics, just 17% of all 2015 participants are women.


Income Equality? Where can I park my jet? If I'm paying 40k for a ticket I MUST get valet parking as well.

But no need for them as helicopters too are in major demand and at last year’s event nearly 200 helicopter flights passed through Zurich airport, carrying 20% of the event’s 2,500 attendees.

I especially like this part:

"Executive director Winnie Byanyima, who has said she will use the occasion to highlight the “staggering” global economic gap between the rich and the poor. It is time our leaders took on the powerful vested interests that stand in the way of a fairer and more prosperous world,”

Just after mentioning that it costs between $10,000 and $15,000 per hour to use the private jets.

I guess they never heard of Jet-Pooling?

Peace

Why do all the ultra liberal do-gooders talk about "the rich" paying their "fair share?"

They don't voluntarily pay extra taxes, do they?

The really sad part is they are completely blind to the hypocrisy of everything about this whole event.

I normally don`t like to use bible quotes but this one seems to be custom made for this situation:


Matthew 7:5
"Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' and behold, the log is in your own eye? 5"You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye


I don`t expect that they will be able to identify and fix any of the more complicated and subtle problems of the world when they are so completely blind to the glaring hypocrisy of their own actions that are staring them right in the face.
if these are the type of people that we are depending on to fix the world then we are doomed.

They want their cake and eat it, too. More like they are meeting face to face to figure out how to keep raking it in and forgo the cost of cleaning up the pollution inherent in industry.

Hi level discussions face to face to figure out how to cover up in the public eye, or distract us…

"Chemtrails" anyone?

The elite of the world,

in particular liberal/progressive elite,

do not see themselves as part of the problem, they see themselves as the only ones smart enough to come up with solutions - that the "little people" MUST implement.

They see themselves as exempt from what they expect of the little people, because they are, after all, deserving of whatever they want because they are "sacrificing" to think of the little people and the world.

The Obama's are a sterling example of the thought process of the ruling class elite.
Force children to survive on 600-800 calories a day (the maximum for school lunch which is the only meal each day for poor children, to combat obesity) while they have sculptured cake of the white house at fancy dinners;
and pictures abound of them eating much much more than the school limit of calories at a setting.
The people of the US have been struggling financially,
while they take huge entourages, including family and friends
on lavish vacations funded for the most part by middle class American taxes.

The ruling class elite, do not really think they are subject to the rules they set for everyone else to follow.

But...with the advent of the internet,
which is why they want to pass laws to control it.
Through the internet everyone can see their hypocrisy
which in the past they were able to hide
but no longer
which probably engenders enormous fear.
More fear than (pretend) belief in global warming
so they can enact draconian policies in the name of helping "the world"
which actually control where the money and power go.

I understand your frustration and I understand the hypocrisy but the truth is that its good to be King. And another truth is that Davos is attended by a great many CEO's of the worlds largest corporations. I've watched some interviews with them. Verily it is the case that the CEO of General Electric, for example, or Bank of America, has little control over his or her schedule and therefore finds it necessary to fly the Corporate Jet to the Davos meeting for quick exit when their time to leave arrives. There are some wealthy "individuals" attending, as they do every year. Bill Gates comes to mind. The richest man in the world isn't going to fly commercial airline to be plucked off into some terrorist extortion plot. I'm not making excuses for these people; I'm simply suggesting it might be worthwhile to consider the situation.

At the risk of causing my post to be considered off topic, I'd suggest another consideration be had relative to this years meeting in Davos. That consideration would be the topic of income inequality.

If the leftist propagandists at BBC can be believed, the income inequality thing is a major concern for the Captains of Industry, Finance and Capital at Davos this year, so much so that they've abandoned the goal of issuing their usual treatise on Global Economic Growth and will, instead, issue a treatise on Solutions to Increased Income and Wealth Disparities about the globe.

I don't know from Global warming; I'm sure it will be given its due this year. But the issue of income inequality and wealth disparities around the globe is rather interesting. I find it interesting because the solutions proposed don't seem to address the reality of the world having passed the point of "Peak Employment". Automation, computerization and Robotics mean that year over year, Corporations such as Proctor & Gamble can produce more soap each year with fewer workers...each year. So, if they needed 100,000 workers in 2012 to produce 1 million tons of Tide, in 2011, they only needed 90,000 workers. By 2025, they'll need less than 50,000 workers, and so on.

One of the popular solutions to this problem of income inequality that's being discussed in Davos is protections of collective bargaining rights. That's all well and good and temporarily raises the pay of the Union workers involved, but that's counter productive in the long run because it only encourages employers to "outsource" their production to third world pit of despair countries where there is no minimum wage and it also encourages them to embrace automation and robotics. So, for example, Elon Musk solved the problem; his Tesla plants are entirely robotic.

It would be somewhat sophomoric to believe the elites are genuinely concerned about "humanity"; practically no one cares anymore about humanity, except perhaps Mother Theresa and shes living with the Angels. Rather I think, the elites are more and greatly concerned about deflation. As workers come to be no longer able to afford the products necessary to get them to their jobs, i.e. automobiles, there's less demand and the prices will of necessity fall. And this deflationary problem is now a major problem in the Eurozone and its becoming increasingly obvious, with, for example, the rise of the Dollar in value, that the old solution of "print more fiat currency" to inflate your way out of a deflationary spiral simply isn't working.

So...this whole income inequality issue is of great interest to anyone who cares to dabble in the problems of macro economic theory. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out.

Apart from them seemingly oblivious to the subject matter compared to the cost in all ways of all this, it's probably a junket for many, and someone else will be picking up the tab...I wonder who?
OP, you are a very bad boy for letting us plebs know about all this.

If you have the money to fly private then why not do it? If you have $40,000 to attend a conference then why not do it? Why live a boring life when you do not have to? I don't understand the hatred for the rich. They got it how they got it, get over it or make changes in your own life and get it too!
Let me put it this way: If you see a bum on the side of the road walking and your in a car, do you owe him anything? Should you pull over and hand him the keys to your car that YOU worked for or that your parents bought you when you graduated college? Should you hand him your bank card? If the answer is no then why not? The only difference is the level of money that the rich, you and this bum have. If you want to fly private get out there and make the money. Or sit here on forums and qq.

They aren't blind to the hypocrisy.

They just think they have no log in their eye. They must pick the speck out of everyone else's.

They actually think they are being magnanimous to the little people to spend their valuable time thinking of the "world and it's problems".


That is the blindness that happens when one is part of the elite class and when one has stayed very long in the political elite class.

They aren't blind to the hypocrisy : they just "know in their hearts"; they are entitled to what they have and do; because they deign to think of the "rest of humanity". They feel a sort of cosmic entitlement to what they have and do, that the rest of humanity, unfortunately, isn't entitled to; or they (the little people) would have what they do, because they are special and worthy.

The plastic surgeon removed that log quite well don't you think?

Really? They need to have a meeting to figure that out? How about take some of those billions you have and give it to the people that don't have? Invest that money into food pantries, homeless shelters and schools. Donate a billion dollars to your favorite charity. Start a trust fund to help people pay off student loans and home mortgages.

I could give them an earful about how to reduce the income gap but I can't find the keys to my jet.

Missing the point of the OP entirely.

But that's ok.

I'm all for people ballin' out however they want. I could careless what the rich do. The point is that liberal elites have this do as I say, not as I do mentality. Al Gore warns us about global warming while flying private jets and building 20,000 square foot mansions. Liberals shut down school choice for those of us who need public schools, but they get to send their kids to private school. Liberals want to take my gun rights while they get to live behind secure gates with armed guards. It is typical liberal hypocrisy of the limousine left.

That's kind of missing the point, it's not all about private enterprise or Entrepreneurship, nothing wrong with that per se, and a good education has to be paid for to help with the former and the latter, and much of that comes from government subsidy, and in the entirety in state education...aka the people, so yes it would be good to give something back to the system. As for Davos, there's probably around a half or more of all attendees, from government or public service. I see no reason for that half not getting a bus.

if they are so danged worried about global warming killing us all you'd think that they would have discovered online video conferencing by now!
seriously I find it hard to take a bunch of people who are flying all around the world to discuss the problem when their danged jets probably throw out more emissions in one hour that I do with my car in six months!!

you'd think if they actually believed all the doom and gloom that they are predicting they'd be conserving some themselves. they aren't never will so quite frankly I tend to not believe much of what they say!
