As we stated yesterday, trillions of misappropriated ENTERPRISE ZONES are OWED to US cities needing to be recovered from what today are MULTI-NATIONAL CORPORATIONS having profited from US funding to build FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES overseas. All it takes is a Baltimore City Council/Mayor making that claim first to Baltimore City Attorney---then Maryland Attorney General and Maryland Governor Hogan. When they refuse to do their job sworn under oath to serve the 99% of Maryland citizens----then the Baltimore City Council and mayor goes to US JUSTICE DEPARTMENT----reports this conspiracy to defraud to FBI----CIA----
Of course any government agency local, state, or Federal would not want businesses tied to criminal activities and conspiracies against our US government allowed in a US state or city. We know the corporations having tied themselves to massive frauds during REAGAN/CLINTON era have merged or acquired by global corporations which KNOWING THE HISTORY of these massive frauds against the US Federal government are CULPABLE...RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT FRAUD.
NO GLOBAL CORPORATE CAMPUSES ALLOWED IN A SOVEREIGN US CITY/STATE.
This is what a FUNCTIONING US local, state, and Federal government would have done these few decades. But everything is corrupt how can 99% WE THE PEOPLE hold power accountable? EASY PEASY.

Such relief shall include reinstatement with the same seniority status such individual would have had but for the discrimination, 2 times the amount of back pay, interest on the back pay, and compensation for any special damages sustained as a result of the discrimination, including litigation costs and reasonable attorney’s fees.
We know actually receiving justice from these massive frauds against US cities will take time so the first goal is keeping businesses known for criminal activities out of our SOVEREIGN CITIES, STATES, NATION. It is easy to VOID any contract installed during the course of massive fraud, public malfeasance.
What REVISED ENTERPRISE ZONE policies have as a goal is dismantling all local government CHARTERS/ZONING POWER regardless of a MARYLAND STATE CONSTITUTION and city/county charters with 300 years of precedence in how legislative power is controlled by 99% WE THE CITIZENS OF MARYLAND OF US.
Baltimore City charter gives BALTIMORE sovereign control over development, commerce, revenues inside the city with the state having some powers in these regards.
Below we see where these few decades Baltimore City mayors and city council have NEGLECTED THEIR JOBS in keeping Baltimore a SOVEREIGN CITY. They place CHARTER AMENDMENT BALLOTS in elections that are rigged and fraudulent----any REFERENDUM attached to an election is ALWAYS PASSED.
Reviewing these CITY CHARTER AMENDMENTS over these few decades to identify those attacking BALTIMORE CITY SOVEREIGNTY is EASY PEASY and can be VOIDED.
Baltimore 99% WE THE PEOPLE black, white, and brown citizens DO NOT WANT AN INDEPENDENT INSPECTOR GENERAL'S OFFICE, we want our local 3 branches of government to WORK ---CHECKS AND BALANCES. Independent inspector general attacks Baltimore's SOVEREIGNTY and those appointed to these BOARDS are always global banking 1% OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS 5% freemason/Greek PLAYERS.
Global banking 1% MEDIA outlets and FAKE 5% labor and justice organizations sell this as a WIN for ACCOUNTABILITY when its goal is to take all ability of local 99% of citizens to BE THOSE PEOPLE holding power accountable. PUGH is quite the OUR REVOLUTION FOR ONLY THE GLOBAL 1% ONE WORLD PLAYER.
Politicians CANNOT abdicate SOVEREIGNTY whether local, state, or national.
Baltimore Mayor Pugh signs off on two charter amendments for November ballot

The Baltimore Sun
Baltimore voters will decide this fall whether the city should allow public funding of local election campaigns and create an independent inspector general’s office.
Mayor Catherine E. Pugh signed the two charter amendment proposals on Monday. Voters will be asked whether they support the measures at the polls in November.
The City Council voted unanimously this month to place the amendments on the ballot.
Supporters say the public financing amendment would limit the influence of wealthy donors and special-interest groups on Baltimore politics. If voters support it, the city will create a Fair Elections Fund and a commission to control it.
The city would provide eligible candidates with matching public funds for small-dollar donations. The charter amendment doesn’t specify where the money would come from. The fair election fund commission would be tasked with recommending revenue sources once it’s created.
But even if approved in November, public financing for local campaigns likely wouldn’t begin until 2024.
Supporters said sending the measure to voters signaled the beginning of the end for big-money politics in Baltimore.
“Mayor Pugh’s actions today show that she understands that working families in Baltimore City deserve to have their voices heard,” Jay Hutchins, acting executive director of Maryland Working Families, said in a statement. “This effort will help empower voters, strengthen local democracy, allow candidates and elected officials to spend more time with their constituents, and rein in the influence of big money in our elections.”
The cost of running for public office in Baltimore soared in the last election. Mayoral candidates spent a total of $9 million in 2016 — three times as much as in the previous race. Howard and Montgomery counties have enacted similar public financing systems.
Pugh also signed a charter amendment proposal aimed at making the Office of the Inspector General independent of the mayor.
Isabel Mercedes Cumming, who leads the office that investigates waste and abuse in city government, said the inspector general position must be independent.
“We have to do the hard investigations and not be biased either way,” she said. “We’re really hoping the citizens feel as strongly as we do that independence is the best thing for the inspector general.”
The City Council also approved a third charter amendment proposal. It would create an equity assistance fund to support programs that work to eliminate “inequity based on race, gender, or economic status in Baltimore.”
Pugh has expressed skepticism that such a fund is needed. She has not decided whether to sign it.
“She’s still reading through that one,” Pugh spokesman James Bentley said.
Councilman Brandon Scott, the amendment’s sponsor, said he’s meeting with the mayor next week to discuss it.
“We know we have to do the structural work as a government to take down some of the policies and practices that have created this gap of inequity in the city,” he said. “And we know it’ll cost money to do that.”
Voters typically approve ballot questions unless there is aggressive opposition. They approved all 10 charter amendments and bond issues proposed in the 2016 election.
As we MOVE FORWARD GREATER BALTIMORE DEVELOPMENT our local Baltimore Development becomes irrelevant AS IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN----we will see that corporate agency of massive crime and corruption closed soon as this DBED takes priority over statewide development and economy. As we discussed yesterday, the BDC and this DBED have absolutely NO POWER. The executives appointed to these boards are WINDOW-DRESSING installed to make it appear someone LOCAL/SOVEREIGN is making these development/economic decisions when in fact they HAVE NO POWER---NO VOICE----only the talent of LYING, CHEATING, AND STEALING the future of 99% of citizens in each state.
'The Department of Business and Economic Development (DBED) has launched a new state program aimed at tapping into the economic development potential surrounding higher education institutions and certain nonprofits'.
Here we see MARYLAND STATE CHARTER-----having created this DBED in 1884 amending in 1995. What we have MOVING FORWARD in MARYLAND being allowed to be called SANCTUARY STATE/STATE ENTERPRISE ZONE/US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONE is a violation of duties outlined for not only our BALTIMORE CITY CHARTER-----but especially for this MARYLAND CHARTER agency. This agency is sworn to protect the interests of STATE OF MARYLAND---and its 99% OF CITIZENS in advancing ECONOMIC AND DEVELOPMENT projects. MOVING FORWARD GLOBAL CORPORATE CAMPUSES AND MASSIVE US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES is absolutely a violation of public faith these board executives guilty of public malfeasance and conspiracy against 99% WE THE CITIZENS OF BALTIMORE AND MARYLAND. This same structure is MOVING FORWARD in your neck of the woods each state has US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES with global banking 5% freemason/Greek pols and players simply ignoring all SOVEREIGNTY and 300 YEARS OF NATIONAL, STATE, AND COUNTY COURT PRECEDENCE.
We often show how FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES overseas completely destroyed local sovereignty in third world nations overseas-----third world nations are not DEVELOPED FIRST WORLD NATIONS with strong public defenses protecting SOVEREIGNTY.

When China opened FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES in 1980s as REAGAN era was creating ENTERPRISE ZONE policies tied to changing FDR ERA policies outlining just what US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES could and could not do----the global 1% of Chinese leaders along with our US CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA working for global 1% OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS-----agreed to create trade policy and corporate governing structures that resulted in US corporations becoming MULTI-NATIONAL CORPORATIONS. These few decades of ROBBER BARON sacking and looting America created corporations where profits were going to major shareholders only ---those being mostly these Chinese 1%. Chinese global 1% PRETENDING TO BE COMMUNIST while being raging LAISSEZ FAIRE CAPITALISTS used foreign corporations as a cover for keeping Chinese 99% of sovereign citizens in extreme poverty.
When we look today at China colonizing all those FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES in Asia CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA had agreed back in 1980s----90s to hand those zones back to China ergo, the colonization of all those small Asian nation FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES. Global 1% EUROPEAN OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS could care less about China taking back economic zones once filled with US corporations because those global 1% European OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS are on Chinese multi-national corporations.
So, money-wise it does not make any difference to European OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS if Chinese foreign corporations are used to fill US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES with goal of colonizing America.
As we discussed in detail-------this coming economic collapse has been staged so the last of remaining US CORPORATIONS fall into bankruptcy and will be enfolded into global multi-national corporations like these Chinese firms.
Global banking 5% CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA working as hard as they can to eliminate all sovereign US corporations.
Looks like much of that SMART TECHNOLOGY being off-shored in buy-outs that our US elected officials KNOW is an attack on our US sovereignty.
Chinese firms go on a buying spree for American companies
Pradip Sigdyal | Eric Chemi

Stock markets in China may be in bear market territory, but that has not stopped Chinese firms from going on a buying spree for American companies.
Direct investments from China put over $15 billion into transactions in the U.S. last year, a near-30 percent increase compared to the previous year and a new all-time high. Early indication points to 2016 as yet another record year for Chinese investments, according to a report by the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations and a research firm Rhodium Group.
"In 2016, China's outbound foreign direct investment (OFDI) will likely grow even faster than in previous years," the report said. "A more pronounced slowdown in economic growth and concerns about the stability of the renminbi exchange rate have visibly accelerated the pace of Chinese deal-making abroad since mid-2015, with a record $100 billion of announced M&A transactions worldwide in the first three months of the year."
A significant share of that capital outflow has already found a home in North America. So far this year, 72 deals (including merger/acquisition and private placement) valued at over $7.5 billion have closed and 27 new deals valued at over $33 billion targeting U.S.-based companies have been announced. This compares to 59 deals valued at $2.9 billion closing during the same period last year, per data compiled by S&P Capital IQ.
$ BillionGrowth of Chinese investment in U.S. (including 2016 projection)Cumulative Value ($BB)20002010200520150255075100125Rhodium Group, S&P Cap IQIt's not only the number of deals but also the size of those transactions that's grown over the years. The average deal announced so far this year is a whopping $1.5 billion, an eight-fold increase from last year.
Moreover, of 27 deals announced this year, five are valued in excess of a billion dollars each and include high-profile transactions such as the acquisition of luxury hotel owner Strategic Hotels & Resorts by Anabang Insurance Group for $8.2 billion, Ingram Micro by Tianjin Tianhai Investment for $7.2 billion (upon completion of the transaction, Ingram Micro will operate as a subsidiary of TianjinTianhai, consolidated under HNA Group) and GE Appliances by Qingdao Haier for $5.4 billion.
The inflow of Chinese capital into the country in recent years has also attracted the attention of the global investment community. For private equity firms that traditionally focused on buying and selling American and European companies, Chinese clients present a welcome alternative.
"Unlike in the past, we have now begun looking for Chinese buyers because of the significant increase in investments by Chinese companies in the U.S." said Abhaya Shrestha, a principal at a New York private equity firm Corinthian Capital LLC. "In fact, we are currently in the process of selling a company which is based in the U.S. When thinking of potential buyers to reach out to, one of the groups we focused on was buyers from China."
The Chinese OFDI that began in the early 2000s with investments in Australian and Canadian commodity firms now spans across countries and various sectors. Chinese capital has recently begun to flow into non-extractive sectors in advanced economies of Europe and the Americas, according to a joint report by Asia Society of Northern California and the Rhodium Group.
The report further cites the explosion of technological innovation in the U.S. and access to high-tech companies in the country as being the driving factors in Chinese firms increasingly targeting technology companies in recent years.
Indeed, of the 72 transactions that already closed this year, 39 involved technology companies worth more than $2 billion. Those included the acquisitions of Intel's Portfolio of Patents and OmniVision Technologies by Xiaomi and a consortium of buyers led by CITIC Capital Partners, respectively.
Another sector that has seen significant Chinese investment recently is tourism and hospitality. According to the Rhodium report, "investments in 2015 included hotels (among them the Red Lion Hotels, Waldorf Astoria New York, Waldorf Astoria Chicago, and the Hyatt Regency Orange County), golf courses (including more than 20 Myrtle Beach golf courses in South Carolina), and travel logistics (such as new operations by Hainan Airlines in San Jose)."
Despite growing Chinese investments in recent years, experts fear the rising politicization in the U.S. can pose a risk to incoming investments which could drive away Chinese capital to other advanced economies of North America and Europe. The current presidential election cycle has, in some ways, already elevated the rhetoric.
The reason global banking 1% CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA are specifically bringing these global multi-national corporations to US SANCTUARY CITY/STATES/AKA FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES-----is global corporations can ignore all US sovereign laws and constitutions inside these US Foreign Economic Zones----where a US corporation would be held to operate as a DEVELOPED WORLD NATION business. We pick on China because they will have the biggest presence in US Foreign Economic Zones since they were the biggest partners for global banking 1% CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA in Foreign Economic Zones overseas.
This is how all corporate economic activity becomes directed to only those global 1% ======while China pretends to be a left communist government----its national politburo filled with China's global 1%------ARE THE STATE GOVERNMENT CORPORATION.
STATE-OWNED DOES NOT MEAN SOCIALIST----IT MEANS THE EXTREMELY RICH CONTROL ALL BUSINESS AND GET ALL THE PROFITS.
The goal of MOVING FORWARD here in US with all the TALKING POINTS about DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST/TRUMP/PUTIN BEING A COMMUNIST----is tied to making our US government structured as a Chinese politiburo with our US leaders working for global 1% OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS----no American will be found.
BIG GOVERNMENT once a US term for left social progressive capitalism goes SUPER-DUPER BIG GOVERNMENT tied to global corporations being that national POLITBURO. Filling US cities deemed FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES with global foreign corporations has only the goal of ending US sovereignty and global banking 5% freemason/Greek CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA KNOW this.

Take a look at the number of Chinese companies on this year’s Fortune Global 500 list and it’s hard not to come away impressed—even a bit intimidated. Ninety-eight companies are based in China, including those headquartered in Hong Kong. That puts China second only to the U.S., which has 128 companies on the list. (You can filter the companies of the Global 500 by country using Fortune’s new, searchable and sortable database.) If you compare this year’s figure to recent ones, China’s rise is even more spectacular. China had just 46 companies appearing on the list in 2010, and only 10 in 2000. The U.S. has trended in the other direction: 139 American companies made the list in 2010 and 179 in 2000.
But dig a little deeper, and China’s rise begins to look less imposing. First, the top 12 Chinese companies are all state-owned. They include massive banks and oil companies that the central government controls through the State-Owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the ruling State Council (SASAC), which appoints CEOs and makes decisions on large investments. Of the 98 Chinese companies on the list, only 22 are private.
With the government as their largest shareholders, China’s state-owned enterprises (SOE) enjoy massive state support, which fosters growth and insulates them from competition. “What would the chairman of China’s largest bank do if the chairman of PetroChina asked for a loan?” wrote Carl Walter and Fraser Howie in their history of China’s markets, Red Capitalism. “He would say, ‘Thank you very much, how much, and for how long?’” He’d probably do so from one of the extravagantly designed SOE-headquarters, many with foreign architects, that line two major thoroughfares in Beijing.
What is the Global 500?
Fortune's Brian O'Keefe, Leigh Gallagher, Andrew Nusca and Scott DeCarlo introduce us to the magazine's list of the world's biggest companies. See the full Global 500 list, here.

Second, the Chinese companies are anything but global brands. They enjoy monopolies or oligopolies at home, but often struggle to expand their business outside of the protected borders of their home country. “Chinese companies that wish to go global are hindered because they lack adequate knowledge of consumers in target markets and experience in building leading brands,” Boston Consulting Group partners wrote earlier this year. Size is no substitute for strength in international competition. Today, many of the Chinese brands that are most known around the world—including Alibaba, Tencent, Baidu and Xiaomi, none of which are state-owned—remain too small (in terms of revenue) to make the list.
The number of Chinese companies appearing on Fortune‘s list should continue growing in the coming years, because it is a government priority to rise up the rankings. At a SASAC event in 2013, the economist Hu Angang, Director of the Institute for Contemporary China Studies at Tsinghua University and a vocal proponent of the Communist Party and its state-owned companies system, said that by 2020 the number of SOEs on the Fortune Global 500 list would hit 130.
But until Chinese companies grow international brands commensurate with their size back home, they will be like B-movie actors who count 1 million Twitter followers: they will never be as impressive as their revenue numbers suggest.
Some other takeaways from the Chinese companies on this year’s Global 500 list:
-Of the 54 companies with the biggest losses last year, 16 were Chinese, the most of any country. (Japan ranked second with eight companies, while the U.S. had just four.) Chinese coal miners and oil drillers were hit especially hard in 2014 by oversupply and falling prices.
-The state-owned bank ICBC had the highest profits of any company, with $45 billion.
-The number of Chinese megafirms with women CEOs: Zero. Of the 14 women CEOs at the helm of Fortune Global 500 companies, 12 are in the U.S., two in India.
-Five of the list’s 10 biggest employers were Chinese. A sixth was Taiwanese: Hon Hai Precision Industry, known as Foxconn. Chinese companies ranked No. 1 in aggregate on the list with 18.7 million total employees vs. 16.2 million for the Global 500 firms in the U.S.
Here are snapshots of China’s 12 biggest companies–all of which rank among the world’s 75 biggest companies by revenue, and all of which are state-owned.
Here in Baltimore there are very few corporations tied to being a sovereign US corporation.

The H&M clothing stores are owned by the H&M Group, which started as Hennes in Sweden in 1947.

LeBron James may have skipped college, but thanks to the I Promise School – a joint project between his foundation and Akron Public Schools that opened Monday – over a thousand students from his home town won't have to.
The school, which is the product of a decade's worth of work, is focused on helping Akron students from difficult backgrounds who qualify based on socioeconomic and performance factors.
By 2022, IPS hopes to teach students from first through eighth grade, but on Monday, it was just 240 third and fourth graders who were on-hand for the opening.
IPS has a longer school day and a longer school year, which is why it's opening in July, but those who complete the entire program will be offered free tuition to the University of Akron, starting in 2021. And in addition to receiving two healthy meals every day, students will also be given free bikes, helmets, school supplies, and even some IPS clothing.
LeBron addressed the crowd on Monday outside the school, which is the product of a decade's worth of work and will focus on helping Akron students from difficult backgrounds who qualify based on socioeconomic and performance factors
Video playing bottom right...For James, who recalled missing 83 days of school as a fourth grader while he and his mom Gloria 'looked for stability,' the opening culminated years of planning by his family foundation.
'This means everything,' James told The Associated Press in an interview before the public event.
'I think this is the greatest accomplishment for me because it's not just me. A championship is for a team, that's for an organization and a city. But these kids, this is for generation after generation after generation and it's for these kids, so it means everything.'
James recalled beating the odds of his youth when life was a daily struggle for him and his mom. Nothing was easy as the pair constantly moved and it was only with the help of others than James found structure.
Now, he's giving kids with the same problems a path.
'There is no way I could have imagined this,' he said. 'I remember our foundation having a bike-a-thon, and I never thought a five-mile bike ride would turn into a school. This is something I'm at a loss of words for.'
It was in the fourth grade when James's mother Gloria allowed him to move in with a local family, the Walkers, who offered him a more stable living situation while she continued searching for steady work. He would go on to have perfect attendance in fifth grade.
'LeBron missed a lot of school in the fourth grade. It's well-documented,' Michele Campbell, the executive director of James' foundation, told USA Today.
