'What does 'Honor among thieves' mean?
If someone says there is honor among thieves, this means that even corrupt or bad people sometimes have a sense of honor or integrity, or justice, even if it is skewed. ('Honour among thieves' is the British English version'.)
This will be another discussion next week on ETHICS AND MORALS dealing with the privatization of all US vital infrastructure to global corporations. In this case it is Baltimore's public water and sewage privatized a few decades ago to global VEOLA ENVIRONMENT now we are being told a global corporations likely a merger with VEOLA now SUEZ wants to control our public water.
Our US Constitution and Federal governance with 300 years of legislative and court precedence PROTECTED AND PROHIBITED any foreign alignment with our vital sovereign infrastructure. Those stances are still in place only IGNORED by CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA. We want to look broadly at these issues so why would Baltimore go from privatized GLOBAL VEOLA ENVIRONMENT to GLOBAL SUEZ?
Whereas French politicians may be POSING ANTI-TRUST to French citizens over merger deals for two giant global fresh water corporations we think this Baltimore deal shows these mergers are indeed happening.
'Even though the Suez-Veolia talks don't appear to have progressed as far as the BAE-EADS discussions, the collapse of both potential deals shows how difficult it is for companies in Europe—under pressure from sagging economies and other factors—to rationalize and improve their operations through deal making. That, in turn, helps explain why the M&A market in the region is so depressed these days'.
Remember, the Western nations are being broken down and re-colonized including US and Europe. What is global French is now being made GLOBAL MULTI-NATIONAL as are any US corporations left. SUEZ has connections to those OLD WORLD MERCHANTS OF VENICE GLOBAL 1% FREEMASONS----this time in our ARABIC region.
A quick look at SUEZ CORPORATION and its history sees a shift from OLD WORLD global 1% French to Egyptian with strong international agreements to access for all global shipping.
Here we are again speaking about HONOR----and indeed the skewing of HONOR AMONG THIEVES as in global Robber Baron global 1% tens of trillions of dollars in frauds against 99% of global citizens especially in US and Europe NECESSITATES assurances of business terms and operations for foreign corporations coming to US cities deemed Foreign Economic Zones. This is why all our US infrastructure is handed to overseas corporations in ownership and/or operation.
Below we see the broad corporate structure of these global corporations as always an INVESTMENT ARM holding much of that corporation's wealth.

French company pitches to take control of Baltimore's water system, lobbyists join push
Luke BroadwaterContact ReporterThe Baltimore Sun
December 19, 2017
In recent weeks, lobbyists have been pitching Baltimore officials on a plan for French company Suez Environment to take operating control the city’s water system, several City Council members say.
The council members say lobbyists from the company have been meeting with influential people inside and outside of City Hall, arguing that private control of water billing and infrastructure will lower city debt.
According to the pitch, Suez — a descendant of the company that built Egypt’s Suez Canal — would pay the city upfront to take control of operating Baltimore’s water system and then collect the money charged from water bills. The company would hire current Department of Public Works employees, honor union contracts, and pledge to raise water rates only minimally.
Jim Perron, Suez’s director of project development, said he has flown to Baltimore from Indiana every week for the past five or six weeks. He said he has met with 14 of 15 City Council members and on Wednesday plans to meet with the Greater Baltimore Committee and Comptroller Joan Pratt, among others.
“The city eventually has to raise rates,” Perron said, but argued private operation of the water system would cause rate increases to be “as close as possible” to the rise of inflation.
Perron said the plan is for Suez and partner KKR, a private equity firm, to develop a 40-to-50-year lease agreement with the city in which Suez would pay annually for improvements to water infrastructure. He objected to the term “privatization” to describe the plan.
“The more correct characterization would be a potential public-private partnership for the city’s water and sewer system,” he said. “The city would continue to own the facilities. We would become the operator.”
Two Baltimore lobbyists have registered on behalf of the company: American Joe Miedusiewski and Brett S. Lininger. Neither responded to phone calls seeking comment.
Mayor Catherine Pugh said she didn’t want to take a “short-sighted” view of the issue.
“Everybody understands that we have a serious problem with our infrastructure,” she said. “The pipes need to get fixed one way or the other. They don’t fix themselves. But we can’t allow somebody to take advantage of the situation. I’m not going to be short-sighted.”
Jeffrey Raymond, a spokesman for Baltimore’s Department of Public Works, said agency director Rudy Chow is not interested in privatization.
“Director Chow has been clear and unwavering in his desire to make the Baltimore City Department of Public Works the best public works agency in the country, accountable to the elected officials, citizens, taxpayers, and rate payers of the City and the water utilities,” Raymond said. “This, not privatization, remains his focus.”
OH, REALLY, CHOW?????? VEOLA ENVIRONMENT OVER A FEW DECADES JUST HANGING OUT HERE IN BALTIMORE?
City Council members who have heard the pitch said they are opposed to the deal.
“The council president is completely and 100 percent opposed to the privatization of Baltimore’s water system,” said Lester Davis, a spokesman for Baltimore City Council President Bernard C. “Jack” Young. “The president has always been a proponent of retaining assets and not giving them away. This is not going to be something that happens under his watch.”
OH, REALLY JACK YOUNG----HANGING ON TO ASSETS WHEN EVERY SINGLE BALTIMORE AGENCY IS OUTSOURCED AND PRIVATIZED?
City Councilman Ryan Dorsey said lobbyists pitched him several weeks ago on how the company could find “efficiencies in the system in order to make improvements less costly.”
“It’s obvious that if you’re looking to privatize infrastructure, your motive is profit,” Dorsey said. “Privatization puts profits first and people last.”
Rather than have an outside company take control of Baltimore’s water system, Dorsey said he wants to see legislation that caps how much the city can charge residents based on their income level
VERY, VERY, VERY, VERY BAD TO CREATE TIERED RATES FOR WATER.
“It’s a scary thing,” he said. “Some people are talking about privatization. It puts fear in people’s minds that machinations are at work. If the council president said it’s not going to happen under my watch, then I want to commend him and hope that others in the city will be equally clear.”
City Councilman Brandon Scott said he took a meeting with the lobbyists but left unimpressed.
“It sounded like a gimmick to me,” he said. “I’m not interested in it at all.”
Perron said deals like the one he is proposing are rare in the United States.
“Our company has pioneered the concept in the United States but it’s very common in Europe,” he said.
The lobbying effort marks the latest attempt by private industry to make inroads in Baltimore’s water system.
In 2014, city officials pledged they had no plans to privatize the water system, as hundreds rallied outside City Hall.
Baltimore's water system employs 1,500 workers and provides drinking water to 1.8 million people in the region.
If one looks at the SUEZ GLOBAL HOLDINGS AND GLOBAL CORPORATION it is massive across industries including HOMELAND SECURITY------and it is located in what is a convenient offshore location close to the home of OLD WORLD MERCHANTS OF VENICE GLOBAL 1% ----MALTA
We want to be sure there is NOTHING RELIGIOUS happening in these OLD WORLD global 1% freemason groups. They are the ones looting our US Treasury, state municipal treasuries, and all our 99% US WE THE PEOPLE'S wealth.
ETHICS AND MORALS------HONOR, FAMILY, DUTY.
'Suez Holdings is a Maltese private limited company',
We showed yesterday how our Asian nations are tied to these OLD WORLD MERCHANTS OF VENICE GLOBAL 1% structures created a few thousand years ago-----these are those global 1% MOVING FORWARD in colonizing our US CITIES DEEMED FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES----with every intention of taking 99% US WE THE PEOPLE ----to feudal enslavement along with all 99% of global labor pool.

When we see a SUEZ GLOBAL WATER CORPORATION our a SUEZ GLOBAL HOMELAND SECURITY-----THINK BUSH------these are the global 1% seeking to control ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE. They are multi-national-----ARABIA, ASIA, EUROPE---nothing AMERICAN about them.
Knights of Malta (disambiguation)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Knights of Malta or Knights Hospitaller were a Western Christian military order during the Middle Ages.
Knights of Malta may also refer to:
Order of Malta (Freemasonry), a Masonic order closely associated with the Masonic Knights Templar
Sovereign Military Order of Malta, the Rome-based successor of the Knights Hospitaller
Order of Saint John (Bailiwick of Brandenburg), the Berlin-based Protestant branch of the Order, from which it separated during the Reformation
Order of Saint John (chartered 1888), an English order of chivalry, parent body of St John Ambulance
The Degree of Knight of Malta (Order of Malta)
The Maltese Cross, symbol of the Order of Malta
This degree is universally associated with the Masonic Knights Templar. In the York Rite system it is conferred before the Templar Degree; in the 'stand-alone' tradition it is conferred subsequently to the Templar Degree. It is known by varying degrees of formality as the Order of Malta, or the Order of Knights of Malta, or the Ancient and Masonic Order of St John of Jerusalem, Palestine, Rhodes, and Malta. In practice this last and fullest version of the name tends to be reserved to letterheads, rituals, and formal documents.
The Knight of Rose-Croix Degree in the "Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite", and honorary Orders like the Royal Order of Scotland are interpreted as evidence of a historical Templar-Masonic connection
One more link before we start discussing MORALS AND ETHICS---HONOR in our US public policy and US cities------as Asia takes its MEDIEVAL stance so too is the global 1% in ARABIA------
In reading international media we have these few decades seen the global 1% in Middle-East touting OLD WORLD OTTOMAN EMPIRE ------as with the redesign of this ARABIC FEZZ-----tied to OLD WORLD MERCHANTS OF VENICE GLOBAL 1% FREEMASONRY. We see again this takes us to 1000 AD----
This is why we know all that civil war and civil unrest tied to installing FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES globally is ALT RIGHT ALT LEFT 5% FREEMASON/GREEKS whipping sovereign citizens into constant wars and tensions.
When we speak of US citizens black, white, and brown citizens we are speaking of multicultural identities no matter how many generations these citizens have lived in US. So, some of our US black citizens identify with those ARABIC freemasons while some identify with Catholic or Jewish freemasonry. Same for our white and brown 99%.
THE PROBLEM FOR US 99% OF WE THE PEOPLE IS THIS-----THE 5% TO THE 1% TIED TO THESE GLOBAL BANKING 1% HAVE NO IDENTITY OR HONOR/DUTY TO AMERICA-----THEIR HONOR/DUTY IS TIED TO OVERSEAS.
This discussion of ETHICS, MORALS, HONOR, AND FAMILY needs to look broadly at from where our US citizens -----new citizens and generations old stand in these BELIEFS.
The Ottoman Empire (Ottoman Turkish language: Devlet-i Aliye-i Osmaniye; Turkish language (Modern Turkish): Osmanlı İmparatorluğu) was an imperial power centered on the borders of the Mediterranean Sea that existed from 1281 (or 1299) to 1923. At the height of power, it included Anatolia, the Middle East, parts of North Africa, and much of southeastern Europe. The empire was established by a tribe of Oghuz Turks in western Anatolia and ruled by the Osmanli dynasty, the descendants of those Turks.
In diplomatic circles, the empire was often referred to as the Sublime Porte or the Porte, from the French language translation of the Ottoman Turkish language Bâb-i-âlî ("great gate"), the grand Palace Gate of the Imperial Topkapı Palace where the sultan greeted foreign ambassadors. It has also been interpreted as referring to the empire's (and especially the capital Istanbul's) position as gateway between Europe and Asia. In its day, the Ottoman Empire was commonly referred to as the Turkish Empire or Turkey by Westerners, though it should not be confused with the modern nation-state of Turkey.

Turkey brings back Ottoman sports.
Brandishing their javelins and letting out a bloodcurdling war cry, the Ottoman horsemen charge at a thunderous gallop. Suddenly one is hit and thrown from his horse – making dozens of children gasp as they film the scene on their smartphones. It may be 2017, but Istanbul rolled back the years last weekend with the Ethnic Sports Cultural Festival (EKF), which aims to promote the sports practiced by modern Turks’ ancestors – from the nomadic horsemen of Central Asia to the Janissaries, the elite troops of the Ottoman empire.
The Revived Ottoman Empire?
:: by Jack Kelley
by RR@admin2 Category:General Articles, Jack Kelley
The Ottoman Empire existed from 1299 until 1922. It was in many respects the Islamic successor to the Eastern leg of the Roman Empire and like the Romans had its headquarters in Constantinople (Istanbul). At the peak of its power, the Ottoman Empire extended from the Adriatic Sea in the west to the Caspian Sea in the east and from Austro-Hungary in the north to the southern tip of the Red Sea. It was at the center of interactions between the Eastern and Western worlds for 6 centuries. The Ottoman Empire was defeated in World War 1 after aligning with Germany. Its dissolution at the end of the war led to the formation of 40 new countries in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Northern Africa, many of them on land once claimed by the Romans.
Suleiman The Magnificent
The Empire’s greatest days occurred under the rule of Suleiman the Magnificent who reigned from 1520-1566. Only 25 years old when he came to power, Suleiman began his reign by performing many acts of kindness and mercy toward his people. He freed hundreds of slaves, showered his officers with gifts, and built a school for slaves. To the Ottomans he was known as The Lawgiver, having re-written the non-Shariah portions of the law. This was the law by which the Empire was governed for all of the remaining years of its existence. Because of the humanitarian nature of his laws he was also called Suleiman the Just by his subjects.
We spoke of Japanese stances on honor, family, duty ------here is our Muslim/ARABIC/PERSIAN stance ----Muslim clerics as too with our Jewish rabbis are central in defining and interpreting what these public policy issues mean for 99% of Muslim/Jewish citizens globally and indeed they work with governments in each nation to assure these societal structures can be integrated to the greatest extent inside non-majority Muslim/Jewish nations.
FAMILY HONOR is strong in Muslim culture and the EYE FOR AN EYE in repairing injustice is strong as well. When we have our global 99% filling our US cities come wanting US freedom, liberty, justice, and rights as citizens---we are asking our 99% of Muslim citizens to move away from CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA far-right wing global 1% extreme wealth extreme poverty ------our Muslim as Jewish have a strong connection to these OLD WORLD MERCHANTS OF VENICE FREEMASON groups-----they will tear apart what US citizens fought 300 years to create as the strongest democratic, egalitarian, free society.
ETHICS AND MORALS, FAMILY AND HONOR-------all major world religions embrace the MOSIAC ten commandments in some fashion......certainly no LYING, CHEATING, STEALING, NO MORALS OR ETHICS, NO US RULE OF LAW, NO GOD'S NATURAL LAW-----Laissez faire global neo-liberalism.
Texas is ground zero for US cities deemed Foreign Economic Zones and MOVING FORWARD has these zones operating as they do overseas which means every foreign global corporate campus will hire and treat their workers however they want ---including religious rights or lack of those rights.
