Boycott Nestlé, Leroy Merlin, Auchan, Decathlon.

Boycott Russia
Boycott Nestlé, Leroy Merlin, Auchan, Decathlon!

Boycott Nestlé, Leroy Merlin, Auchan, Decathlon!

Each time we make a cup of coffee have our favorite cereal, eat our favorite snacks, and confectionery we may be helping a company that refuses to turn its backs on Russia.

When we feed our pets their favorite pet food, we may be contributing to this war and helping to boost the Russian economy and ‘Putin’s War’.

The only way to force these companies to withdraw from Russia is to hit them where it hurts, in their pockets and if sales started to drop on a Global scale they would think twice about trading with Russia.

We all need to do our part albeit perhaps a small part until companies like Nestlé, Leroy Merlin, Auchan, Decathlon learn a lesson.

“If you think you are not affected by what is going on in the world at the moment, you are very much mistaken, regardless if you are a household or a business, prices are rising because of Russia. If you are not affected directly you will be affected indirectly. We need to help our governments put a stop to this w#r once and for all”.

About Nestlé.

Nestlé S.A. is a Swiss multinational food and drinks processing conglomerate corporation headquartered in Vevey, Vaud, Switzerland. It is the largest food company in the world, measured by revenue and other metrics, since 2014. It ranked No. 64 on the Fortune Global 500 in 2017 and No. 33 in the 2016 edition of the Forbes Global 2000 list of largest public companies.

Nestlé’s products include baby food (some including human milk oligosaccharides), medical food, bottled water, breakfast cereals, coffee and tea, confectionery, dairy products, ice cream, frozen food, pet foods, and snacks. Twenty-nine of Nestlé’s brands have annual sales of over 1 billion CHF (about US$1.1 billion), including Nespresso, Nescafé, Kit Kat, Smarties, Nesquik, Stouffer’s, Vittel, and Maggi. Nestlé has 447 factories, operates in 189 countries, and employs around 339,000 people. It is one of the main shareholders of L’Oreal, the world’s largest cosmetics company.

Nestlé was formed in 1905 by the merger of the “Anglo-Swiss Milk Company”, established in 1866 by brothers George and Charles Page, and “Farine Lactée Henri Nestlé”, founded in 1867 by Henri Nestlé. The company grew significantly during the First World War and again following the Second World War, expanding its offerings beyond its early condensed milk and infant formula products. The company has made a number of corporate acquisitions, including Crosse & Blackwell in 1950, Findus in 1963, Libby’s in 1971, Rowntree Mackintosh in 1988, Klim in 1998, and Gerber in 2007.

Final Thoughts From the Editor.

Anyone that buys products from companies that trade in Russia has blood on their hands.

Any company that trades with Russia has blood on its hands and any person that buys from these companies is attributing to Ukraine’s Atrocities. For me, I will not be buying Nescafe Coffee or Gourmet Perle Cat Food, or other products from the list on Nestlé. I have made the change and so can you.

Angry Bee Who Is Me!

I may not even make a massive dent as I am one bee, but a swarm of bees can do a lot of damage.

***

Anonymous is also on the Warpath and they are targeting the companies that refuse to not trade with Russia. https://www.hstoday.us/featured/anonymous-hackers-fire-warning-shot-at-companies-refusing-to-pull-out-of-russia/

If I had any say in our government I would impose sanctions on trading gold in Russia. I would also put sanctions on any brands still trading in Russia but also trade with the rest of the world. I would hit them where it hurt in their pockets. If companies could no longer trade in the UK and all brands were removed off the shelves until they pulled out of Russia it would play an important part in helping to end the funding of this w#ar Putin has started.

I am sure the public would understand and agree under the circumstances this measure would bolster the demand on helping end this w#r.

Trading in Russia will uncover many layers similar to a traditional Russian Matryoshka doll. Boris Johnson said Britain wants to “see who really owns the companies and properties that are talked about.

He continued to say “We are going to stop Russian companies raising money on U.K. markets, and we are even with our American friends going to stop them trading in pounds and dollars.”

If I had any say…

  • I would stop all lorries going in and out of Russia via Adjacent Borders.
  • I would close the borders on Russia and not let anyone in (or out).
  • I would introduce special visas to stop mules crossing the borders (if the above was not an option).
  • I would stop Gold from being traded in and out of Russia.
  • I would put sanctions on all vaults holding Gold for Russian Oligarchs (I think Putin has a secret stash of precious metals and precious gems in his own hidden vaults.
  • I would put sanctions on all brands/companies still trading with Russia and ban their products being sold in the UK/World, until they withdraw. (No more Nescafe Coffee or Kitkats I’m afraid).
  • I would encourage every country in the world to Boycott Russia.

All The World Leaders Need To Turn Their Backs on Russia.

Breaking News.

Two US journalists were shot and one has died. A US journalist working in Ukraine has been shot dead in the town of Irpin, outside Kyiv, police say. US film-maker Brent Renaud was reportedly killed by Russian forces in Ukraine. Brent Renaud was an award-winning US filmmaker whose work has appeared in the New York Times.

Other News:

The Middle East is helping Russia and its soldiers are being promised $3000 per month up to 50 times more than the Syrian soldier’s monthly salary. Syria’s military has begun recruiting troops from its own ranks to fight alongside Russian forces in Ukraine. 16,000 volunteers from the Middle East are being deployed alongside Russian-backed rebels fighting in Ukraine, as the two-week-old invasion struggles to maintain momentum.

What I would do is get Ukraine to offer the Syrians double of what P#tin is paying them on the condition they turn on Russia. I would get donations from around the world to pay the Syrians off.

The world needs to turn its backs on this dictator not even buy him a cup of coffee. It is predicted that Russia next week will become bankrupt.

Russia’s defense ministry said the deployment would be made to the breakaway Donbas region of eastern Ukraine where much of the recent fighting had been focused.

What else I would do is offer his entourage money to defect or turn against him. Money can buy people and power.

What is alarming is that last week on LinkedIn it was posted that the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Viktorovich Lavrov was having talks with H.H Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed.

Whatever the Russians can offer there is going to be a better price or deal around the corner.

I would, just like Pontius Pilate wash my hands from this sorry son of a bitch. I would put such a price on his head for anyone to bring his head on a platter”.

If I had any say in Politics I would go to the leaders in the Middle East and give them an offer far better than what this “CRETIN P#TIN” is offering.

Every Ally that he turned to I would also do business with, by giving an offer that they could not refuse. Eventually all his money and blood gold would be worthless. I do hope history repeats itself and his fate is met that of his predecessors.

Further Reading

P#tin needs to be brought to justice and needs to be tried for w#r crimes. In w#r you do not target civilian life. if the Pope has sent a direct message to stop this massacre and he still does not have a conscious there is something seriously wrong with him in the head and no matter what he does the world would have lost all respect for him including from his own people.

Companies Pulling Out of Russia Daily.

Boycott Russia
Join The Revolution and Boycott Russia.

Fossil Fuel W#r!

I recently wrote about companies still in Russia but each day more and more are pulling out and ceasing trading.

However, even if the Russian Economy collapses the Russian Dictator has Gold reserves and money in offshore accounts not in his name to fund his evil plan regardless of what the rest of the world does to him.

Furthermore, someone as powerful as this P#tin, do you not think he has ways of moving his wealth?

Also, I will embed a video which is in Polish and what these people are saying that the Russians are going to Poland to stock up on medicines and food in lorry loads crossing to Belarus and then onto to Russia. So the sanctions are not being addressed properly by the Polish Government. I would stop all import-export to Russia and I would put a special tax or sanction visa as a security measure.

https://fb.watch/bHwmAUEW3N/

Here are some ways money can be moved:

  1. Blockchain
  2. Crypto Currency
  3. Digital Assets
  4. NFTs
  5. Money Laundering
  6. Precious Metals
  7. Precious Gems
  8. Artwork
  9. Dark Web
  10. Import Export by Lorrys.

The reason in layman’s terms why this w#r is happening is because the US President imposed sanctions ready for the New Green Deal which meant countries will be moving away from fossil fuel otherwise they will get heavy sanctions and fines.

It is no coincidence that we were told that energy prices were going to rise this spring way before w#r broke out.

This was already on the table and P#tin who supplies 1/3 of the gas and oil basically had to make Ukraine the scapegoat and an example to the west of what he can do if he does not get his way. He does not want his supply to be worthless but if I were him I would have re-evaluated and would have maybe started the largest solar energy provider and manufactured solar panels, turbines, etc. But P#tin is not a businessman, just a thug and his entourage whom may I add look like they come from the dark ages and set in their ways are no better.

The EU’s Green Deal has a new purpose — not just to fight against climate change, but also against Vladimir P#tin and Europe’s dependence on Russian gas.

The Russian president’s attack on Ukraine is creating newfound unity in cutting off one of Moscow’s biggest sources of cash. That’s something repeatedly promised during past times of Kremlin aggression, but it was never delivered.

https://www.politico.eu/article/putin-made-europe-green-deal-great-again/

Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said it was “a focused acceleration of the European Green Deal” as a “strategic investment in our independence.” 

A large share of the initial savings would come from finding new suppliers of gas. But the EU wants to double down with a rapid boost of renewable energy and measures to cut energy use. Commission Green Deal chief Frans Timmermans called it “a huge opportunity.”

Now Ukraine which wanted to join the EU and Nato would have meant they too would have to do what all the other countries are doing and Russia who supplies 1/3 of the energy would start to feel a dent in their pockets if everyone went Green. This is now being dubbed the ‘Fossil Fuel War’ similar to the sanctions ‘Trade W#rs’ Trump imposed on China which caused them to retaliate with the C#v#d Pandemic. In order to understand why things happen in this world, we have to look at the bigger picture and uncover what world leaders do at the expense of the citizens. It’s a game of monopoly and who can win and not be defeated. So if all countries had sanctions imposed not to buy oil and gas from Russia, this would bring the country to its knees.

Washington is delegating for an embargo and sanctions on Russian oil and gas as a way of weakening Putin in the midst of his violent invasion of Ukraine. The move makes strategic sense: fossil fuels make up 60 percent of Russia’s exports and account for 40 percent of its federal budget. Literally what this means is oil and gas fuel Putin’s war machine.

Companies that have recently pulled out are:

Russia is becoming a commercial pariah,” said economist Mary Lovely, a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington. “Pretty much no company, no multinational, wants to be caught on the wrong side of U.S. and Western sanctions.”

STOP TRADING WITH RUSSIA

The move to pull out of Russia is not only a humanitarian responsibility, it also is a political stance in order to comply with Western sanctions against Russia.

Companies are increasingly aware of the potential risks to their reputations by continuing with business as usual in the country.

Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin of Russia said last week that it would help investors make “a considered decision” rather than succumb to the political pressure of sanctions. It’s not clear how that measure may affect corporations’ efforts to withdraw from Russia, but I am sure secret handshakes will be made.

Here is a running list of companies that have scaled back or cut ties with Russia.

Fossil fuels 

Western sanctions on Russia have for now excluded the energy sector, where Russia is a major player. The nation is the world’s third-largest producer of oil and the second-largest producer of natural gas. However, oil and gas companies, already feeling the heat from climate activists to invest in renewable energy, were among the companies that announced the most rapid and dramatic exits.

“A smart business proposal”

For many companies, exiting Russia is as much about business as it is about morality.

“It’s really tough to do business in Russia under the best of conditions. Now it’s become just crazy. So getting out is a smart business proposal,” said James O’Rourke, professor of management at the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business, who specializes in reputation management and business communications. https://5f464be4842b2c839c66f46a898c6d23.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.html

Two million people have fled Ukraine as of Thursday, according to the United Nations refugee agency.

Company commitments to environmental, social, and corporate governance, known as ESG, are being put to the test. ESG has become the acronym that’s increasingly seen as an important way for corporations to have responsible business credentials.

“But there can also be an element of ‘greenwashing,'” where companies say things that make it seem like they hold certain values or are on the right side of ESG issues while their practices and behavior suggest otherwise, Columbia Business School associate professor Vanessa Burbano said.

“Stakeholders like employees and consumers will want to see if companies’ actions and behaviors are consistent with the communicated support that companies are expressing for Ukrainians,” she said.

Final Thoughts From The Editor.

Where there is a will there is a way and I am not convinced that this w#r will be over anytime soon. It was projected that on day eleven P#tin would have run out of money to fund the w#ar, by day fifteen it is still going strong. His troops need food, he also needs to replenish his artillery so where is his money coming from? I believe he has a vault full of gold so who is buying his gold?

Just like sanctions on blood diamonds, there should be sanctions from blood gold. Any gold, artwork, cryptocurrency, NFTs, and digital assets should also be frozen coming from that country but I believe he is now in hiding in his fortress near the baltic sea with his entourage. Furthermore, all borders should be closed to stop import-export into Russia. Whilst borders remain open money, gold will exchange hands, but how do you stop a country going by land unless you make up special security visas which have to go through certain protocols that could take many months to be approved. Like I said where there is a will there is a way. How about offering the enemy a reward if they surrendered and give security when they have defected. They say you cannot buy people but if the country they live in has an economy on its knees imagine what they could do with the money you pay them. Currently, the Ruble is worth 6 pence which means 100 Rubles would be £6.00 One would have to make the troops worth their while. Imagine if each person was paid £100 in their money that would be 1,660.00 rubles.

Final Thoughts From The Editor.

I am by no means any way qualified to give political opinions but from a personal perspective and what I can see on a daily basis P#tin is a sore loser, his entourage is most probably scared of him hence will do whatever he tells them to do.

But what if you took the instigator out of the equation you would be left with a country that would have to reform. I personally would find out where his sorry arse is located and I would without warning drop a bombshell or two.

The way to find this pathetic example of a human being is to locate his family and friends (although I bet you he has none) then you will get to him. He has children and nannies and servents find out who actually works for him. I am sure that some use smartphones, tap into the phones, and track the phones via satellites.

According to reports The long-term girlfriend of Russian president Vladimir P#tin – Alina Kabaeva – has reportedly gone into hiding in Switzerland, together with the couple’s four young children. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/putin-hiding-olympian-lover-4-26399997

He is bound to be in contact with his girlfriend and children, I would start there. He also has two grown-up daughters living in Germany. In addition to his four children with Kabaeva, P#tin also has two adult daughters, 36-year old Maria and Katerina (35), both from his first marriage to Lyudmila Shkrebneva, a former flight attendant. Maria is married to a Dutch national, Jorrit Faassen, and lived in the Netherlands until recently. She is believed to have left Holland for her native Russia recently.

How hard is it to locate a person with modern technology and Artificial Intelligence? What one does is peel off the layers to find out who all the families are and the connections of all the people that need to be targeted and put surveillance on them all.

I would capture his girlfriend, family, and children’s location, going as far as detaining them to flush him out. His girlfriend has friends and family, I would put surveillance out on all of them.

I may not have any political experience but I used to run a security company with my ex-husband “Alan Barnes” called “Siren Security” in Cardiff in 1993 -2001 back in the day doing covert operations. Alan is sadly not with us now “God Bless his Soul”.

But this is what I would do to flush out this low life.

A true leader does not destroy lives he motivates and empowers people and will stand on the front line to show others how it is done. A true leader is someone like the “Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy”.

Disclaimer of the Brands In this Article. Many Brands are Switching Sides so you need to do your research before making a campaign. Every day more brands are washing their hands of the Russian Dictator. Shell has announced today they will no longer be trading with Russia.

Boycott Companies Still Trading in Russia.

We as citizens need to take a stand and support Ukraine from companies that continue to trade with Russia. This means putting pressure on corporations and refusing to buy their products, so even if you may love your coffee, beefburgers, and your fizzy pop, it is a small sacrifice to make to help put an end to this atrocity that is happening in Ukraine.

You would not only be helping our own Governments but you will also be helping people in Ukraine and trying to end this senseless w##.

The more companies that turn their backs on Russia eventually their economy will collapse. They need money to buy artillery, pay their military, and provide for their people.

If we can hit Russia in its pockets, they will eventually run out of money, but this also applies to putting a point across to the companies that are in bed with the enemy.

Global News has already published the outcry to boycott McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, and Shell as these companies are still trading in Russia thus helping to fuel the fire.

It has been reported that three Ukrainian supermarket chains announced they are removing Coca-Cola products from their store shelves and the hashtags #BoycottCocaCola, #BoycottPepsi, and #BoycottMcDonalds were trending on Twitter over the weekend. However, people who support Ukrainians around the world should also take a stand against these companies until they join the rest of the world to help end this diabolical w##

Companies Still Trading With Russia:

Boycott Companies That Are Still Trading With Russia!

Citigroup Inc C -1.83%(Get Free Alerts for C): The Bank was trying to remove itself from Russia long before the Ukraine invasion, but it is trapped in a quagmire — efforts to sell its Russian consumer business is in limbo because the sole potential buyer, the Russian state bank VTB Bank, has been sanctioned by the U.S. government. In its defense, Citigroup CFO Mark Mason stated the bank might need to write off nearly approximately $9.8 billion.

Coca-Cola Co KO -2.37%(Get Free Alerts for KO): Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company AG, the Swiss-based firm distributing Coca-Cola products in Russia has not only shown no signs of suspending operations, but it also went so far as to tell the Russian news agency Tass: “All operational, production and logistics facilities of Coca-Cola in Russia are working. “We are fully responsible to partners, society, and thousands of our employees in Russia. Our top priority is the safety of our employees.” Coca-Cola announced it had halted production at its factory in Kyiv and evacuated its employees, yet is still doing business in Russia, which makes you wonder where their priorities lie?

Estée Lauder Companies Inc EL -7.56%:Thie hair and skin care and cosmetics provider which has headquarters in New York generates 2.7% of its revenue, or approximately $500 million, from sales in Russia. The company issued a statement on March 4 insisting it was “committed to supporting those impacted by the invasion of Ukraine,” adding that its “priority is the safety and well-being of all ELC employees, and we are continuously monitoring the situation and evaluating all possible measures to support them.”

Herbalife Nutrition Ltd HLF -0.06%:This multi-level marketing corporation gets 3% of its revenue, or approximately $150 million, from sales in Russia. On Feb. 23, the day before Ukraine was invaded, Herbalife President John DeSimone answered an earnings call question about the region and stated while there was a risk in Russia, “the biggest risk is probably in Ukraine, and it’s not a material country to us.

Hilton Hotels Corporation HLT -6.32%: Among the U.S. lodging companies, Hilton has 29 hotels in Russia; its sole Ukrainian operation is a hotel in the capital city of Kyiv. Hilton is still operating at the locations and the company has yet to make any public comment regarding the crisis in the region.

Kimberly-Clark Corp KMB -0.91%:The personal care product provider has been part of the Russian market since 1996 and generates 3% of its revenue, or $600 million, from sales in that country. In January 2019, it announced an $80 million to expand its Russian flagship factory in Stupino, a town 61.5 miles south of Moscow. Kimberly-Clark has not offered any public comment regarding Russia’s actions in Ukraine.

McDonald’s Corp MCD -4.88%: The fast-food giant gets 9% of its revenue from the Russia/Ukraine markets, or roughly 2.3% billion. The majority of its Russian locations are franchised by Russian Business Owners, yet the company has ignored growing demands from consumers and elected officials to shut down its Russian eateries.

Papa John’s International Inc. PZZA -7.76%: The Pizzaria chain has approximately 185 restaurants in Russia, headquartered in Atlanta USA. On the company’s fourth-quarter earnings call on Feb. 24, the day of the invasion, President and CEO Robert Lynch stated: “that any change to our restaurants in Russia will depend on how much disruption there is there and the impact of that business.” He continued to say he has no plans of closing any of the restaurants down and added the company had no restaurants in Ukraine.

PepsiCo Inc. PEP -1.99%: The Purchase, New York-based company is being pressured to rethink their business with Russia, with 4.4% of its revenue, or $3.4 billion, coming from that market, the firm is being pressured by New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli who controls the state’s $280 billion pension funds, which includes PepsiCo shares, and he bluntly stated it would be in the company’s best interests to “address various investment risks associated with the Russian market.”

Starbucks Corporation SBUX -6.19%: The famous coffee house headquartered in Seattle has 130 licensed coffee shops in Russia; with no presence in Ukraine. The CEO Kevin Johnson is not forcing its Russian partners to close, he informed his workforce via an internal memo that the company “will donate any royalties we receive from our business operations in Russia to humanitarian relief efforts for Ukraine.”

Shell PLC said they would continue to buy crude oil from Russia so as not to disrupt the market for the consumer but with the news hitting headlines today that car fuel prices will be rising, I as a consumer would much prefer to buy fuel that is not laced with blood. https://news.sky.com/story/ukraine-war-fuel-prices-hit-new-uk-records-with-diesel-averaging-1-61-amid-warnings-of-worse-to-come-12559818

(At the time of this article going to press, it has been announced today Shell is now pulling out of Russia which is excellent news 🙂 I would have hoped that contacting the family office in the UAE had something to do with it).

The complete list of companies that remain can be seen below:

Final Thoughts From The Editor.

I have redacted some words as I have noticed that online censorship is causing certain articles to get flagged or banned so I have replaced certain letters with hashtags. I wrote about online censorship and words can get you struck off https://marketingagency.cymrumarketing.com/2022/03/05/online-censorship/

I first noticed a problem when I used certain keywords like the Russian Dictators name in an article I wrote about how all Energy and Fuel Price Rises are going to increase poverty to unprecedented levels and how it will affect people’s mental health. This article kept coming back as a 500 sever error and my IT team could not understand what the issue was until I did a bit of digging and finally edited the article into three parts omitting certain words and phrases and not publishing the video that was controversial. You can read the edited article about Financial Difficulty here.

If you are finding your utility bills in the UK going to be unmanageable do consider changing utility providers.

Mental health can affect all people in all walks of life and poverty can cause poor mental health through social stresses, stigma, and trauma. When individuals find themselves in financial difficulty and perhaps do not have the necessities to survive, mental disorders such as depression or anxiety can develop and intensify. Mental health is also caused by grief. Grief can be caused by a number of situations such as the loss of a loved one through death, divorce, or separation. Grief can also be because of the loss of your home and worldly possessions as in the case of many millions of people in Ukraine right now.

If you have been affected by grief or are in financial difficulty I highly recommend you read the following articles I have written on this site and on another that I own:

  1. Coping With Grief
  2. Financial Difficulty
  3. Mental Health Useful Links

“If you found this post useful do take a moment to comment, share and subscribe”.

“Please don’t forget to do your part as a consumer to help stop this evil dictator and put an end to all the people dying”.

“This is now another reason why our prices are rising and inevitably our mental health getting worse”.

“If we come together and stand united we can conquer everything that faces us. My thoughts are with the people of Ukraine”.

Shell Continues To Buy Crude Oil From Russia.

Shell Continues To Buy Crude Oil From Russia.

Europe’s largest oil company said on Saturday that it would most probably still continue to buy Russian crude oil to supply its customers and feed into its refineries with petrol and diesel, however, on the other hand, to put a band-aid on a gaping wound would donate any profits to a charity dedicated to “the people of Ukraine.”

https://www.nytimes.com/live/2022/03/05/world/russia-ukraine?smid=tw-nytimes&smtyp=cur#shell-says-it-will-buy-russian-crude-and-use-the-profits-to-help-ukraine

According to https://fortune.com/2022/03/05/shell-says-it-bought-russian-oil-after-government-talks/ Shell reportedly on Friday bought a cargo of Urals crude oil from Trafigura Group, at a record discount to benchmark prices in a signal that major buyers will likely continue to make purchases of Russia’s energy products despite its increasingly deadly war against Ukraine.

https://fortune.com/2022/03/05/shell-says-it-bought-russian-oil-after-government-talks/

If this is not helping to fuel the fire, I don’t know what is? and people should make the right decision to continue to use this brand.

Is there not enough oil in UAE?

Has UAE got enough oil or is it running out?

The United Arab Emirates has enough oil for the next 299 years and has proven reserves equivalent to 299.0 times its annual consumption. This means that, without Net Exports, there would be enough oil for the next 299 years (at current consumption levels and excluding unproven reserves).

https://www.worldometers.info/oil/united-arab-emirates-oil/

Therefore the only reason why Shell would continue to do business with Russia is the price of the oil, where Russia’s oil is cheaper.

If all major corporations, government, and countries are turning their backs on Russia then this company should be no different.

Any company that helps the Russian Economy is as bad as the Russian Dictator and they too have blood on their hands”.

Shell PLC.

Shell plc is a British publicly traded multinational oil and gas company headquartered at Shell Centre in London, United Kingdom. Shell is a public limited company with a primary listing on the London Stock Exchange (LSE). It is one of the oil and gas “supermajors” and by revenue and profits is one of the largest companies in the world, ranking within the top 10 of the Fortune global 500 since 2000. Measured by both its own emissions, and the emissions of all the fossil fuels it sells, Shell was the ninth-largest corporate producer of greenhouse gas emissions in the period 1988–2015. Citation Wikipedia.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shell_plc

Shells Key People.

I think any company that trades with Russia should be penalized by the government and anyone that knows of a company trading with Russia should stop buying from them its as simple as that.

If I am an itsy bitsy business that can sever all ties with Russia and take down my eCommerce platforms powered by “Ecwid Lightspeed” then everyone should do their part to help stop this w## and bring down the dictator and the Russian economy.

Shell released a statement on Saturday, saying it was a tough decision. “Yesterday we made the difficult decision to purchase a cargo of Russian crude oil,” Shell tweeted however it would abandon its involvement with the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, its stake in the company’s natural gas facility, and its venture with Gydan energy.

According to Shell the reason why they have decided to continue doing business in Russia was to not disrupt the market supply that if sourced elsewhere would have caused delays for the consumer. However, the consumer would have waited for delayed shortages and would have temporarily used an alternative supplier until Shell got back on its feet again.

“It is now down to the consumer if they wish to continue buying from ‘Shell’ or help end this senseless w## by finding an alternative supplier of auto fuel”.

Online Censorship

ONLINE CENSORSHIP

Online censorship is a strategy used by search engines and government agencies to control and suppress published information that can be accessed by members of the public. Online censorship puts restrictions on what information can be put on the internet. Online Censors free speech – (There is no such thing as free speech). Internet censorship limits the content the public can access and potentially the content that gets published by content writers. 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_censorship

How Internet Censorship Affects You (+Pros & Cons) (g2.com)

Online Censorship

Censorship of Articles, Images, and videos.

I tried publishing an article the other day on “Financial Difficulty” and how this W## is going to affect the global economy and basically I kept getting a 500 server error. I took it up with IT and basically they could not give me a finite explanation, so I started to do a bit of digging.

It wasn’t until I watched the film on “Amazon Prime Video” and what is happening with the sanctions that I started joining the dots, the film “The forecaster” made me realize we do not have freedom of speech and everything we say and do we are being watched and controlled.

If the elites of this world have their assets and banks accounts frozen what chances have the rest of us have if we step out of line and perhaps say the wrong thing?

At least these people have fiat money and precious metals that they could still live off to a certain degree.

I think it is about time these greedy men were taught a lesson and by rights and had their assets confiscated and their bank accounts frozen. Now consider this scenario and I am not an economist but would that mean the banks would have more money and interest rates would fall with all this surplus money in circulation?

The sanctions are a way to diffuse the fire by taking away the fuel or the money needed to fund w### and to rightly so!

However, if Shell PLC is buying oil in Rus###, then inadvertently they are fuelling the fire. The same goes for Coke~Cola, Pepsi, Starbucks, if all these companies are still trading in Russia then they are also fueling the fire.

However, the film did say that Martin Armstrong, once a Wall Street-based financial advisor, was arrested and jailed on charges of orchestrating a 3 billion dollar Ponzi scheme, which he still disputes to this day, but in reality, he was the accuser and then because of what evidence he had, he became the victim, where he was punished for stepping out of line.

I then tried uploading the video that I wanted to share on Financial Difficulty, it was a video that you can view on Youtube, “The Hidden Secrets About Money” by Mike Mahoney, and my article was unresponsive. So if you do want to check this out just do a quick search and I highly recommend it as it tells you what is going on with the world right now with the money system. If you go directly to Mikes’s website www.goldsilver.com you will see and hear for yourself that Mike also experienced censorship of his own articles.

This now tallies what was in the news today that journalists publishing news, not in line with the Russian Dictator’s point of view ake news about his military could face 15 years in jail. I have omitted from publishing his name and I guess you know who I am talking about P####.

Questions I would have asked would have been:

  1. What has Ukraine done to deserve this?
  2. Will you explain yourself to the world and your resaons why you have acted so harshly?
  3. Could you not have resolved any differences or misunderstanding in a civil manner?
  4. What does you family think of what you are doing?
  5. Do you not care about your own family and how it is going to affect them?
  6. Have you not got a conscious?
  7. Do you not care about human life?
  8. Why target civillians?
  9. What have civillians ever done wrong for you to punish them?
  10. Do you not care about your own people?
  11. Do you not care about businesses in your own country which are now suffering?
  12. Do you not care about your own economy?
  13. Are you mentally unwell?
  14. Have you been accessed my a psychiatrist?
  15. Do you know you are polluting the air of neighbouring countries including your own?
  16. Do you not want world peace?
  17. Do you realise what you do and acquire you can never take it with you when you are gone?
  18. Do you care you are being compared to the WWII dictator?
  19. Will you address all the families that have been affected by what you have done including your own people?
  20. Do you not care you are the most hated man on the planet?
  21. Can you sleep soundly at night?

I was originally going to use this platform as my voice and write him a letter seeing I could not email as his websites have been hacked but thought better of it as you never know who is watching.

It has now emerged that Facebook and Twitter have been ba#### by this country.

If they have nothing to hide they should not be ba####g anything or threatening media outlets and journalists. If they want to suppress what their people can see there will be more social media platforms that will pop up and websites, they cannot b## them all.

Here is a list of words you should use wisely on the internet without being censored or flagged by government agencies.

If you happen to use these words in your articles you may end up having your website penalized and thrown off by algorithms.

Editors Final Words.

I hope P#### sees some sense and puts a stop to this senseless w##.

He has single handily ruined his own country. That is why you should not have men in power as there is too much testosterone flying around and big egos. Women would never go to these lengths to win an argument. Also, the Ukrainian girl with pink hair that died should be the martyr post child for the face of peace and it should be sent to the k#####n and be put on the dictator’s desk. I could not share the picture because it is copyrighted but here is the link to the news article: Younger brother of pink-haired girl shot dead with her parents in Ukraine has died (msn.com)

1. FINANCIAL DIFFICULTY.

If you are struggling with finances do not brush them under the carpet, it will never go away and will only get worse. Interest grows every day if you do not stop it.

Talk to your creditors, they are after all still human although that may change in the future (AI Robots). Just take note. does your bank account control you or do you control your bank account?

If you are not good at talking over the phone, write your creditors an email or letter.

3. MENTAL HEALTH

These price hikes will inevitably cause people to have mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, intrusive thoughts, emotional distress and may even lead to an increase in suicides. It may also cause people to turn to alcohol or recreational drugs to numb the problems they may have.

If you are worried about money, talk with your creditors you can come to some arrangement with them, after all, they would much rather get a payment than no payment at all.

You should NOT get yourself so worked up that you make yourself unwell.

If you feel you cannot cope talk to your local general practitioner doctor (GP).

Talk with a friend, neighbor, or family member. If you feel you have no one to talk to, reach out to the organizations I have listed in the link below. Here are some useful links if you have mental health issues or need to talk to someone: https://disabledentrepreneur.uk/useful-links/

7. FINAL THOUGHTS FROM THE EDITOR

Nothing is so bad that cannot be resolved.

No matter what situation you are in, for example, if you are a business owner and the walls seem to be closing in with the mountain of debt from loans, etc, do consider consolidating your debts. The same goes if you are on a low income or unemployed, no one should be in a situation where they feel there is no way out.

If you think your utility prices are high do consider switching to another provider.

I have included two sites below for you to check out:

Your credit rating may not be great so consider opening an account with Cashplus Bank (They do not do credit checks and they also have Business Accounts).

Whatever your financial circumstances there are professional financial advisors that can steer you in the right direction. Did you know that Poverty increases the risk of mental illnesses, including schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, and substance addiction? Below is a PDF about Mental Health for further reading or alternatively visit our site.

Poverty-and-Mental-Health

You are not alone, there are millions of people in the same boat and some may not know what to do.

With so much uncertainty both globally and here in the UK the situation doesn’t look like it will ease for home buyers anytime soon and looks very grim. We now need to get ourselves prepared for the rough storm ahead”.

Introduction to our guide on ‘Financial Difficulty’ and what we have included at Glance (Part 2).

(W### Makes Money and The Truth About The Money System).

  1. Young People, Salaries Falling Prices Growing.
  2. UK Govenment Help with Fuel Costs.
  3. Cost of Living Breakdown Expenditure Calculations.
  4. Housing.
  5. Homelessness.
  6. Leaders and Dictators.
  7. What is Money and What is Currency (VIDEO -Temp Disabled).
  8. About Mike Maloney.
  1. YOUNG PEOPLESalaries Falling, Prices Rising.

Prior to the pandemic, wages due to furloughs and layoffs were unheard of but now a shockingly 24% of those aged between 18 and 34 had reported a fall in their wages employed in the sectors including hospitality and retail, it’s not surprising that they have seen their incomes fall, either as a direct result of a wage cut or due to a reduction in their hours.

Research by the think tank Demo, and KIS has found that only 30% of people reported a rise in pay since before the pandemic, whilst 70% have seen their wages either stagnate or fall.

When the young were asked why they took on a second job, some responded that they were worried about job security as their primary role could be at risk in the future. Although having a second job may boost their finances in the short term, the additional pressure of long hours may take its toll on a person’s wellbeing.

A third of the population fears that the worst is still yet to come and has a genuine concern about the soaring prices which would have a negative effect on their lives, physically, mentally, and materialistically. The fortunate few who have had some savings will end up losing it all to counteract the impact of higher living costs.

The direct cost for heating and powering our homes, and the indirect cost of other goods and services, will inevitably affect our budgets and our quality of life.

Fortunately, the UK only relies on 3% of Russia to supply Gas to Britain, and it’s the global market that determines the wholesale gas price.

There will still be a knock-on effect for households in the UK if there is a shortage supply of Gas to the rest of Europe from Russia.

2. UK Government Help With Energy Costs.

What is laughable is the UK Government is going to give £200 to people in England and £150 in Wales to help with the increase of the cost of living, however, it is a loan, that you pay back at around £40 per year.

This equates between £12.50 and £16.67 a month towards their energy bills and if my bill is anything to go by Electricity £34.00 and Gas £90 per month totally £124.00 a month. £12.50/£16.67 is pathetic by my calculations if one still has to deduct £3.33 per month to pay the loan back. Residents in Wales will essentially have £9.16 off their predicted monthly bill of £250 this coming April.

A person who has tax credits of £99.23 per week, how do they survive on £396.92 per month?

Minus £250 for Gas and Electric = Leaves a total of £146.92

Minus £58 for water = Leaves a total of £88.92 divided by 4 x weeks leaves £22.23 for food.

So what is the hidden agenda? is it to starve people or drive them to breaking point”?

Changes by the UK Government to National Insurance from April 1st, 2022 will mean that many working people will be seeing more of their income heading to the Treasury.

In addition, the rise in the energy price cap will mean serious rises in the cost of heating and powering your home, which for some such as the disabled, unemployed, households on low incomes and the elderly will be penalized the most, with the rising costs of basics like food, interest rate rises, and council tax hikes, people will be forced into poverty.

So is the Government expecting people to live on Ramen Noodles to survive?

These price hikes are going to be detrimental to people’s mental health and lives.

I understand that some people have a job which is based on 40 hours per week on the national minimum wage of £9.50 equates to £380 per week multiplied by 4 weeks £1,520.

Not everyone is lucky enough to have high-paid jobs and some people live alone.

For people who live with someone obviously, the majority of bills will be halved and not everyone commutes or has childcare.

However what about the self-employed that maybe only scraping by and are not making a profit and maybe paying back loans and credit cards and just living on tax credits?

Clare McNeil, the head of the IPPR’s Future Welfare State program said:

“It has trapped us in a vicious circle which, unless broken, will condemn us either to a constantly rising social security bill or to ever-increasing poverty among working households.”

Jonathan Reynolds, shadow work and pensions secretary, said:

successive Conservative administrations had broken the link between work and prosperityit is simply wrong that one in six working households can’t make ends meet while the overwhelming majority of children living in poverty have working parents”.

4. HOUSING.

KIS Finance Advisor Holly Andrews, MD said:

“At a time when the cost-of-living crisis is deepening, the global impact of the situation in Ukraine looks set to make the situation even worse. Rising costs on everyday essentials, alongside increasing interest rates, will stretch household budgets and be a further blow to those trying to get onto the property ladder”.

With the rising costs on the horizon, there will be an increase in evictions and homelessness. People will simply not be able to live. Not everyone can manage their money well or set budgets, therefore I have designed a monthly financial planner for you to customize. I recommend starting a new planner each month.

Furthermore, shortages in the housing market are forcing prices to escalate, while rents are at some of their highest rates ever. With the cost of borrowing increasing alongside the rising cost of living, people saving for a deposit will find it hard to get on the property ladder because of mortgage income requirements which will implicate disposable income due to the rising cost of essentials.

5. HOMELESSNESS.

Local Councils predict evictions are to rise as much as 79% from privately rented houses as people struggle to make ends meet. The current pressures on the rising cost of inflation and living could see homelessness increase by as much as a third compared to pre-pandemic levels.

6. LEADERS & DICTATORS.

Fat Cat!

Privilege Leaders & Dictators.

It is ok for the privileged individuals that have never been without food or have never experienced poverty to dictate what the working or lower class should live on.

President Put## who is purported to be the richest man on earth is driven by greed, corruption, money, and power, yet what is waiting for him on the other side is going to be worse than any war he has ever created.

Imagine if their wealth was suddenly taken from them they would soon be singing a different tune. These people that have had lavish upbringings do not have a clue what the rest of the public has to do to survive. These people that have gone to private schools funded by their wealthy parents do not have one iota what it is like to bring food to the table and to keep a roof over one’s head. These people that pay £500 in the UK to aim to help society and get rewarded once they get a good enough following again may be clueless. (I have a better following than some MPs I know, but am not paid what they get). One does not need a specific qualification to become an MP as it is a job you have to work up towards although most people do have some form of higher education and the ones at the very top of the food chain have been either been born with silver spoons in their mouths or have had wealthy parents, spouses or connections.

Who controls our money system?

(Watch the Video Below)

Forbes 500 Rich List

Have you noticed the likes of Put## (who has been in office since 2012 ), the Rothchilds and Rockerfellers are not on the Rich List of wealthiest people because they are the 1% that control the rest of the world and are far richer than the likes of Elon Musk, Warren Buffet or Bill Gates? Furthermore, The Waltons with $238 billion, The Mars with $142 billion, The Kochs with $124 billion, The Hermes with $112 billion, The Sauds with $100 billion, The Ambanis with $94 billion, The Wertheimers with $62 billion, The Johnsons with $61 billion, The Thomsons with $61 billion, The Boehringers and Von Baumbachs with $59 billion are also not mentioned. https://www.investopedia.com/articles/insights/052416/top-10-wealthiest-families-world.asp

This is what the Federal Reserve says about the money system: https://www.federalreserve.gov/faqs/about_14986.htm

Yes, I know Pres##### Put## came from humble beginnings but he made affluent connections when he joined the K##. It is sometimes the case of not what you have or what know but more so who you know, that can open doors…

7. WHAT IS MONEY, AND WHAT IS CURRENCY?

To know how the system works one needs to educate oneself about money and currency. The video below explains the process.

Fiat money has no value unlike gold or silver, it is what the federal reserve prints out, keeps on printing and lending out with the only goal to charge interest on worthless pieces of paper, which people have to slave over.

The price of gas in the ground does not inflate in value it is the price the fat cats put on to make themselves richer. This is sacrilege, but then again if they cared about people they would not cause wars. We are just a number to them and they will not mourn you if you die.

President Put## does not care about his people or his army, you will not see him on the front line fighting with his army, he will be tucked away in his shiny kremlin office somewhere unlike the Ukraine President Zelen####, who is fighting to save his country.

President Put##’s only intention is to gain power, money, and control. He does not care that sending out troops may not return, he does not care about the families of the soldiers that died in the line of duty, and that their family’s worlds will be turned upside down. He only cares about lining his pockets, gaining control of a country, and dictatorship.

Ukraine – Pres#####t Zelens###

Ukraine is now ordered all men, between 18 -60 training every abled body male to help fight the w##. These men have no choice they have been conscripted as per the orders of Ukraine’s “Pres##### Zelens###”, although he has been seen in combat uniform himself. He has also pleaded with other countries to help.

This senseless act by “Pres##### Put##” is so that the fat cats get richer and for everyone else to get poorer.

“We have one life, one world and we come into it with nothing and we leave with nothing, so why be greedy and not share equally”.
