IS GRETA THUNBERG A PAWN?

By Pete Moore On August 19th, 2019

No! Say it ain’t so! I can’t believe that the autistic 16 year old with severe anxiety didn’t mount a stunningly successful global PR campaign all by herself.

  1. I can’t read the article because I am not a Times subscriber. Does it mention Soros, because I am disappointed now if I read a right wing conspiracy article that doesn’t mention Soros somewhere.

  2. Ah. So it’s all a conspiracy.

    Of course.

  3. As I said, it’s hilarious how much a sixteen year old Asbergers’ sufferer can get middle aged men’s knickers in a twist. It’s class.

    Question, if Thunberg was campaigning internationally on say an anti abortion ticket do you think she’d get as much abuse on the non MSM and media harassment from the establishment?

  4. If Greta Thunberg campaigned against abortion she’d be anonymous. No-one would gove her a platform.

    Still, it’s interesting to see what swings the commies behind Big Energy.

  5. “Big Energy”

    F@#k me. You used to be a capitalist, Pete.

  6. Of course they wouldn’t. She’d wouldn’t be praised to the rafters all over rightworld social media by people like your opportunistic self.

    Yeah, such an uncharacteristic piece for Dominic Green too.

  7. MR –

    I remain a capitalist. A free market capitalist. Crony corporates hate free markets. They prefer to rig the rules for their advantage.

    Yes, ‘liberatrians’ likE those at ‘Spiked’ hate CORPORATE funding from the Koch Brothers

  9. See the item below on the pawn known as AOC – she was selected too, in the same manner.

  10. As always, follow the money !

    This is all going to come undone. To push the narrative and to stop the general public becoming, Climate Change fatigued (ie bored), they will mount evermore extreme events and make even extremer claims – see Simple Conversation about AGW. St.Greta being just one pitiful example.

    The Marxists, and similar useful idiots to corporatists, will blame all and deny all in an effort to keep the people off track, ignorant of what is happening and the scam / money making scheme going. Or at least as far as they can until they have reached to point where people begin an uprising.

    It’s YOUR money they are stealing !

  11. this child’s parents need to be locked up for abuse.

  12. Mrs. Thatcher I believe as a believer in man made global warming

    What branch of the Communist party was she a member of?

  13. Marxists and Corporatists? Can’t you make up your mind?

  14. The only true capitalists are Trump Alex Jones and Rush Limbaugh

    The corporations are all led by communists now.

    that only proves you can find a flaw in the best of us…..

    Let’s have a look noting that communists supported communism for everybody, but not for themselves…….

    The organization representing the nation’s most powerful chief executives is rewriting how it views the purpose of a corporation, updating its decades-old endorsement of the theory that shareholders’ interests should come above all else.

    The new statement, released Monday by the Business Roundtable, suggests balancing the needs of a company’s various constituencies and comes at a time of widening income inequality, rising expectations from the public for corporate behavior and proposals from Democratic lawmakers that aim to revamp or even restructure American capitalism.

    “Americans deserve an economy that allows each person to succeed through hard work and creativity and to lead a life of meaning and dignity,” reads the statement from the organization, which is chaired by JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon.

    Jamie Dimon – that’s a good start….

    The new statement comes as the gap between the compensation growth of corporate executives and American workers has grown at staggering rates. An analysis released Aug. 14 by the Economic Policy Institute, a left-leaning think tank, found that chief executive compensation had grown 940 percent since 1978, by one measure, while typical worker compensation had risen just 12 percent over the same period.

    So it’s definitely communism for everyone else

    The absurdity of the CEOs of corporations making claims to morality and decent behaviour should be evident. A corporation cannot be expected to be moral, because any corporation which tried to be moral would be unseated by one whic is less moral. Even if there is no-one to unseat them because they are a monopoly, the entire structure of modern economics is driven by a profit motive, so there is just nowhere to inject morality there. Furthermore, these are massive companies, and there is no individual who can be expected to behave morally. People point to the CEOs, but they are still employees of the company, and hired by the company because it is believed they are the best possible person to do the job. Corporate morality is an unrealistic expectation, and here’s an example of how immoral these corporations can be…….

    An advertising campaign, “Love is Love,” launched by the Coca-Cola Company ahead of a progressive music festival in Budapest, Hungary last week has led to political leaders calling for a boycott of the global soft drink company.

    Coke blanketed Budapest with images of couples — including lesbians and gay men — kissing and in friendly intimate poses at train stations, bus stops and other parts of the city. They were posted on the company’s Hungarian Facebook page August 1. The ad campaign led up to the Sziget Festival that ran August 7-13.

    Coke is running a test to see if corporates can get away with this, and they’re not bothered about any commercial losses – it’s the message that matters. If Gillette is prepared to take a loss of $8 billion to attack white males (yes – its consumer base) then Coke will be a willing scout for the immoral corporate pack.

  17. Mrs. Thatcher I believe as a believer in man made global warming

    Yes and no. She briefly came under the influence of Sir Crispin Tickell. He was an advocate of global cooling in the 70s before he flipped to the warming bandwagon. Under his advice she promoted concerns about global warming. Then later rowed back on that somewhat.

    She was always resolute, however, that anything done to mitigate ecological and environmental harm must be as a result of capitalism and markets. Only they, she corrected identified, could generate the necessary wealth.

    She also saw the great left wing migration, from economics to climate change:

    “The doomsters’ favourite subject today is climate change. Clearly no plan to alter climate could be considered on anything but a global scale, it provides a marvellous excuse for worldwide, supra-national socialism.”

  18. Jamie Dimon is a great leader.

    In the financial crisis, when other banks nearly went bust due to stupid moves in mortgage securities, his bank stayed strong, because he got them out of that stuff when he took over.

    That was good for his employees, and for Chase investors too.

    I want you to kiss the ground that he walks on, Allan.

    JP Morgan Chase chairman and chief executive Jamie Dimon has apologised for the bank’s $2bn (£1.3bn) losses on high-risk trades.

    “We have let a lot of people down, and we are very sorry,” he said, testifying to the US Senate Banking Committee.

    He said the losses occurred because traders were poorly managed and did not understand what they were doing.

    Protesters disrupted the start of proceedings, with one man shouting, “Jamie Dimon is a crook.”

    And whilst he supports communism for everybody, he exempts himself and his fellow-CEOs

    …..chief executive compensation had grown 940 percent since 1978, by one measure, while typical worker compensation had risen just 12 percent over the same period.

  20. He said the losses occurred because traders were poorly managed and did not understand what they were doing.

    He’s a great leader and manager

  21. He saved a great American company, when those around him in the US and UK were nearly destroyed or were destroyed.

    Tell me who is a better leader of a business – you don’t know

    The nuts on the left and right, who don’t know business at all hate Dimon.

  22. Phantom – there is something badly wrong in money and banking when the apparent ‘best’ CEO racks up $billions in losses and his underlings “do not understand what they’re doing”. Stellar performance

  23. Allan

    JPM has revenues of $131 billion

    It has a market cap of $350 billion

    It has been -profitable – every year since he took over in 2004, including throughout the financial crisis, when other big banks got crushed.

    You might want to do the slightest research before speaking about something.

    I don’t think that you like capitalism at all.

    Are there any leaders of small or large businesses that you respect
