Trump and the press

Something is happening, it is the third time that happens in five months that citizens decide

the opposite of what they send. They can not with them or major media or the establishment of economic and political power, suddenly get fed up, say enough and consider a referendum or elections as the last opportunity to change things. And they take advantage of it. It happened in June voting the Brexit in the United Kingdom, it happened again in Colombia saying no to the peace process with the FARC and they have done it again by voting for Donald Trump. And in these social changes worthy of study they are not accompanied by the mainstream media. There has been a divorce between what the street thinks and what they say they think from an office, journalists only attend to the latter.

We forget what we are, we owe it to information alone but sometimes we lend ourselves to be used in favor of a candidate, so we did in these elections to the White House and Trump put it on a tray to attack him, the more he We accused of being politically incorrect, the more votes I got. Without questioning, we gave as good the intentional chronicles that came to us from Fox, CNN or international agencies, we believed together what the Washington Post or the New York Times published, but Twitter, Facebook or Instagram won them the game.

Now when Trump despite them wins the elections we are happy to dispatch covers like the newspaper El Periódico de Catalunya “Dios perdone a America”, or we announce resounding falls in the stock markets around the world that never happen and in the United States thousands of people go out to the street protesting what they have decided themselves. Can you imagine what we would be publishing if it were the other way around, if Hillary had won and Trump did not show up on election night while violent demonstrations multiplied throughout the country? Some would say that Trump was giving a coup d’etat.

Journalists who followed the campaign of the two candidates already saw

Journalists who followed the campaign of the two candidates already saw

that the meetings of Hillary Clinton were usually held in smaller spaces and cost to fill them, while Trump’s took place in stadiums and many supporters stayed on the street for lack of space . While Trump warmed his mouth insulting his opponents or saying he was going to return the Syrian refugees to his country, Hillary shouted in his rallies that all who voted for Trump were racist and xenophobic but only the first appeared on the news. When Trump bellowed that if he were president he would expel the Muslims, the press kept silent that Hillary’s campaign was paid by sheikhs from Saudi Arabia and Quatar. When Trump promised to build a wall with Mexico to prevent illegal immigration, no media remembered that Bill Clinton was the first to build a border wall between the two countries in 1994.

The media elite here and there clearly took sides with what they considered was “the system”, Wall Street and better defended the European governments, but they lost. They still think that citizens are puppets that move under their orders and as happened with Brexit or in Colombia, not a single demographic study knew that Trump would win elections, only free citizens like the documentary maker Michael Moore who predicted it in detail or in Spain who was President of the Spain-US Chamber of Commerce Antonio Camuñas who wrote it six months earlier. It is Trump who has known how to connect with the language spoken in North America badly that weighs us and with a maxim “You can be like me” that’s why he refused to be called a politician. How far from the American people are Hillary, Beyoncé, Madonna and many others who climbed into the chariot of power hoping she won the battle.

Trump will possibly go down in history as the President who said the most savages in the electoral period but … who is more dangerous the one who says or the one who does? Throughout the campaign the media kept silent that Hillary is responsible for the failed war in Lebanon, which always supported the war in the Middle East, voted in favor of the war in Iraq, supported the military coup in Honduras that toppled the democratic government, sponsored the coup in Ukraine that established a neo-Nazi regime and other niceties that were not issued by international information agencies. These same agencies were in charge of spreading the obscene recording of Trump eleven years before insulting the women, they gave the journalists the work done and we bought it without question. Or we re-interpret and tell what happens on the street or our profession has lost its raison d’être.

ZDF WISO plus: Liability insurance is a must

  The liability insurance does much more than just reimbursement, if insured spill coffee over the laptop of a friend. Rather, it offers an important existence protection. Because in addition to unpleasant, but affordable minor damage can be caused by a mishap and a comprehensive property damage, for example, as a result of a fire. Worse still, if third parties are harmed by their own behavior, they may be required to make life-long payments . A personal liability insurance reimburses the costs incurred as long as the damage occurred in the private sector and there was no intent. However, to be optimally protected, interested parties should consider a few things when choosing insurance.

High coverage for adequate protection

High coverage for adequate protection

The ZDF magazine WISO plus recommends, for example, to pay attention to a sufficiently high coverage. If the damage exceeds the agreed sum, the insured remains on the remaining costs. Therefore, the coverage should be between five and ten million euros. Thus, almost all damages are covered by private individuals.

Which private liability is the right one?

In addition to the exact benefits and a sufficient coverage, the price for many consumers is the most important factor in the elimination of insurance. Especially with the liability insurance is worth a comparison of the different tariffs. Because the prices for a private liability insurance vary in part very strong. Insured persons do not have to pay much for good liability. A look at the liability insurance comparison calculator illustrates the large price differences. With it interested ones find also fast a favorable and powerful tariff.

Life changes – repair liability

In addition, it makes sense to adjust the liability insurance to the respective living conditions . If a young couple contracts, for example, only a single common policy is necessary. It can thus save contributions. Parents should make sure that they choose a liability insurance that pays damages even if the children are under the age of seven. Although children at this age are not liable for any damage caused, a liability insurance is nevertheless worthwhile. If, for example, the child damages the property of friends or neighbors, the liability insurance company reimburses the costs incurred in such cases if the parents have violated their duty of supervision.

When the liability insurance does not apply

Some hobbies are not covered by any liability insurance . Therefore, insured persons should be careful to either choose from the outset a policy that also covers damage in this area or arrange a corresponding insurance coverage with the insurer afterwards.

Damage caused by own dogs and horses is not covered by a personal liability insurance, here an animal keepers liability must be completed. Even homeowners are only fully secured if they also have a landlord liability.

The German government approves the law to make the loan to Greece

Berlin (dpa) – The German government approved today the expected bill that includes the loan to Greece of 22,400 million euros in the next three years.
The law will be sent for sanction on Friday to the two chambers of Parliament, after which it must be initialed by the federal president, Horst Köhler, to be able to enter immediately into force.

“The rescue action is of a huge political and economic dimension.” Merkel stressed that through aid not only helps Greece, but ensures the stability of the euro, something that also benefit the Germans. “A stable European currency is a very high asset,” he said, while demanding more measures.
“We have to learn from this situation” and put an end to speculation, as well as create a European rating agency. The president demanded reforms of the Stability Pact so that it can not be breached in the future and proposed a unified banking tax in Europe to finance future crises.
The countries of the euro zone agreed on Sunday in Brussels to make available to Greece through loans at lower interest than in the market about 80,000 million euros in the next three years. Germany will contribute the largest sum among Europeans, some 22,400 million euros – equivalent to 28 percent of the total, through credits from the KfW public bank and state guarantee.
For its part, the International Monetary Fund will attend Athens with another 30,000 million euros. The money will be released within a week, said the director of the entity, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, in Washington. Athens needs money before May 19, when interest is due for about 9,000 million euros.
In return, Greece committed to implement a plan of cuts that includes the increase in the Value Added Tax from 21 to 23 percent, the elimination of the bonus (extra pay) to public employees and retirees and the increase in the retirement age.
The Athens government plans to save some 30,000 million euros until 2013 and reduce the public deficit to 13.6 percent by 2014 to the limit allowed by the Stability Pact of three percent. Greek unions have called for multiple protests.
For this year, bilateral European loans for 30,000 million euros and the IMF for 15,000 million euros are planned. The coalition of Christian Democrats and Liberals under Merkel can pass the law in Parliament by itself. The opposition parties expressed reservations.
For the Social Democrats, the aid should include an important contribution from the German banks, which have in their balance sheets about 27,000 million euros of sovereign bonds of Greece. Like Los Verdes, the SPD demands a plan to prevent speculative attacks such as the one launched against Greece.
The Left Party announced that it will vote against the law. “We need the participation of the banks, we need to limit the speculations with currencies and we need a regulation of the international financial markets to finally put an end to these harmful speculations that the taxpayer always has to pay”, demanded the head of the Social Democratic bloc, Frank -Walter Steinmeier.
The European Central Bank announced today that it will make an unprecedented exception and accept sovereign bonds of Greece as collateral for loans from the European bank regardless of the rating they receive from the rating agencies.
The Frankfurt-based entity added in a statement that the suspension of all conditions relating to the credit rating for the Greek debt securities will govern “until further notice”.
After last week the single currency rose when Athens gave the green light to the terms to receive emergency credits, today the euro fell to $ 1.3238 the official exchange amid the nervousness of the markets because of the risk that The crisis extends from Greece to other countries that also struggle to balance their public finances.
The fear of investors is that having approved the aid to Greece, Europe and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) have to face similar measures in nations such as Spain, Portugal and even Italy.
