PERSUASIVE ARGUMENT


PERSUASIVE ARGUMENT
7 December 2023
In matters of international trade disputes, when a superior court in one country makes a ruling in regards to a trade transaction, it has an effect globally in where findings made may be used in other legal jurisdictions when a similar dispute is encountered, in an effort to settle such a dispute; especially where an active or flawed democratic process is apparent in countries practising adherence to the rule of law. This is the one area of law where such ‘persuasive arguments’ could be readily used in support for a claim of damages being sought in another country. In one recent case a Canadian grain producer successfully sued a buyer who had signed an offer but later decided not to proceed with the contract. The grain producer successfully argued in court that the offer was legally binding and that he had accumulated expenses in ‘preparing the goods for shipment.’ The buyer, rightfully so, was ordered to pay about AUD$ 100,000.00 to the supplier, for said “expenses incurred.” End buyers must be wary; that even though they are trading or buying products located ‘on the other side of the world’, signing an offer which later is canceled, could incur huge costs. The preferred trading or buying aspect is for the end buyer to seek a ‘good quote’ first. A “good informative quote”, is one that has a clear price basis and added details about the goods being considered, as it relates to quality, quantity and grade. A quote is not legally binding. A quote once signed and is returned to the supplier simply ‘confirms’ that the end buyer has agreed with the price basis. FTNX has always treated the ‘offer’ as being more important than the final contract. With a contract, it is possible to add a ‘cooling off’ period in where the ‘buyer’ is able to sign the contract, and later ’breach’ the contract, on the condition that such an act occurs within the expressed ‘cooling off’ period. The ‘offer’ has no such option attached; as the offer once signed delivers the legal aspect; that the offer was “accepted” and that, parties to the signed offer ‘are prepared to enter into a contract.’ In recent times FTNX has now added the following clause to all offers it sends out “as accepted”, when conducting business on the supply side. “Upon the acceptance of this offer, the supplier shall not commence preparing ordered goods for shipment, until the supporting contract has been signed.” Where matters of time constraints become apparent, and there is a reasonable possibility that the supplier may need to prepare goods for shipment earlier than usual– to ensure it can fulfil an order within time schedule – is teated as an excuse; because in an effective trading schedule, the buyer ought not have contemplated such a purchase in haste. Therefore, with ample time on hand as specified on the final contract, “preparing goods for shipment” would have been considered intently when ‘constructing’ the contract; as this one service is about “satisfying a delivery date.” This is one reason Inter alia why conducting business successfully with FTNX may take up to three months to close; as such similar matters, defined as ‘delays and excuses’ were considered prior. Even a good, clean and uninterrupted transaction will take FTNX at least 55 days to close – at the best of times.To schedule the buying of commodities correctly and safely, the end buyer should allow 2 months to complete the deal on the sellers side. A Professional Commodity Trader such as FTNX must accommodate up to 3 months to finalise a trade on the same basis, as FTNX has two contracts and transactions to contend with–within the same period of time.

LEIN ON GOODS


LEIN ON GOODS
7 December 2023
A leading bunkering company went into administration. The first action was to recoup outstanding payments. The Hong Kong based liquidator, sent out invoices for immediate payment for fuel delivered to vessels. Most shipowners chose not to service the demands made. The administration took the carriers to court, in an attempt to exercise the lien in making a demand for the return of the fuel. An argument was presented by the law firm representing the shipowners that; the bunkering company “only had a lien on the original fuel it delivered” and that such fuel had been used months earlier to which; the lien (caveat) attached to the original fuel cannot be enforced, because the ‘original fuel delivered’ no longer exists and therefore–such said fuel cannot be returned to the bunkering company. The bunker company lost the legal challenge. This was the legal outcome on the international stage. Could such a ruling be applied in a domestic localised situation in a country like Australia or even the USA, on a similar premise? A person buys an old dilapidated house by taking out a loan with a local bank.The bank takes out a lien or caveat on the old house as security over the loan taken. 10 years later, the old house no longer exists as the buyer has spend a small fortune to change the original purchased aspect. The borrower defaulted on the loan in where the bank decided to exercise its lien on the property, to force the property owner to sell the house so it may recoup funds borrowed. The property owner refused to sell his home to which the bank takes the home owner to court, to force the sale. Could the home owner argue that the lien can no longer apply on the original property purchased, because no semblance of the original property exists. Could such an argument prevail? A supplier is paid when ‘delivery’ is completed at port of loading now serves one important reason why ‘full payment’ must apply at such a time. As far as it applies internationally, if goods delivered are changed to another end product, the lien attached to the original goods delivered could be ‘extinguished,’ is now a matter of law. However the ruling could ‘also be stretched’ and be made to apply in others scenario e.g: A Russian crude oil supplier while bearing western sanctions, delivers crude to a refinery which has no sanctions apparent , in where the refinery turns the crude oil into diesel or where another crude oil is blended with the original onboard Russian stock.The changes made to original delivery could now bear a new origin, causing sanctioned goods to be purchased legally and lawfully as non sanctioned fuel– could be successfully applied. A supplier MUST be paid fully, ‘when goods as ordered, are delivered in good condition over the ships rails, port of loading” is an excellent rule for reason cited. Failing to do as much may lead to a huge financial loss. Failing to interpret Incoterms correctly will contribute to such financial losses. These are the kind of events FTNX has examined over decades; the kind of events that many suppliers may have failed to observed; now serves a very good reason why using FTNX in a trade deal, has genuine purpose; beyond the scope of ‘just making a profit.’

SELLERS INVOICE


SELLERS INVOICE
8 December 2023
The importance of ensuring that entries made on an invoice are itemised–cannot be over emphasised. Custom officials at port of unloading assesses import charges, taxes and tariffs based on the information found on the sellers invoice, as advised to the end buyer. A bad habit currently exists where the sellers invoice sometime will appear to have the total value of goods prescribed as ‘one lump sum’. This is a mistake and will cost the end buyer a significant amount of added expenses to be unfairly incurred, often exceeding 25% of the goods value especially when a CFR or CIF delivery modes are used. Custom officials will take the whole value of goods advised on the sellers invoice and apply importation charges accordingly. In one recent case, an end buyer tried to challenge this aspect, where the court dismissed the claim. If you apply one lump sum on then invoice, then charges apply on the whole sum, when it should have applied on the value of goods only. Even commission payments made to third party assisting on a transaction must be declared on the sellers invoice where supporting goods are delivered at CIP, CIF or CFR incoterms. All entries on the invoice must be itemised; in doing so , Custom officials will verify if the value of goods are legitimately expressed, and apply import charges accordingly.

SUEZ CANAL PROBLEMS


SUEZ CANAL
18 DECEMBER 2023
Major suppliers are avoiding the Suez Canal route until further notice; due to terrorist threats cause by the use of drones. This means Europe and Asia will suffer prices hikes, as ship take the longer routes. Ships who do transverse the Suez Canal could find themselves being uninsurable, as insurance companies also withdraw insurance coverage for ships going through the Suez Canal. Insurance rates in general will also increase a ship take longer to delivery goods on board. Suppliers and end buyers need to communicates about these matters, before signing the contract.

DISHONOURABLE TRADERS


DISHONOURABLE TRADERS
19 DECEMBER 2023
Many private commodity traders have become dishonourable traders. Crude oil carriers being filled with sea water . Demanding more terms and conditions after contracts are signed. Intentionally breaking the contract to sell goods elsewhere at higher prices..etc.etc. FTNX nor any of its USCT members trade in such a manner, as such traders are ethical, educated and highly informed about the nature of business they apply. In one recent case, a Swiss company conducting business as dishonourable commodity traders sold LNG to another country on a fixed basis. At the same time LNG SPOT prices had increased by nearly 300%. The SWISS company looked to enact on the force majeure clause to make an excuse not to deliver contracted goods. The Swiss company even went ahead on such an excuse to cancel the contract. The SWISS company simply diverted revolving shipments to the SPOT market to secure greater prices, than the prices committed with its previous fixed contract purchase basis. This is a serious event and we should hear more about it in the near future, as the seller has actually sold goods already ‘belonging to another’ for a higher gain intentionally. The buyer should immediately instigate court proceeding for breach of contract and loss of profit and make a claim for the whole amount earned by the SWISS company reselling such goods. The SWISS company made the classical mistake of cancelling the contract for no good reason, as the force majuere clause does not mean the contract is cancelled, it only means that delivery is late or may need to occur at another time. If this event happened to FTNX it would have initiated court proceedings immediately which would have taken year to finalise. End buyers depending of imports of raw material must be aware that well known large trading houses and private entities trading in commodities have been and will continue to act dishonourably and are deemed as ‘crooks’ by FTNX, who have crossed path with such private traders over the decades; who have still , never changed their ways. Other financially precarious events in regards to money laundering and the performance guarantee is also event , in where end buyer are asking for two or three shipments in advance as collateral supporting late delivery of the remaining deliveries. End Buyer and supplier MUST deal with disciplined honourable informed traders and not ‘cowboys’ who don’t give a damn about the clients needs in the chase for profits.

DONALD TRUMP OPINION


DONALD TRUMP OPINION
9/1/2024
When the majority infringe upon the rights of the minority, the majority is wrong .
While I do not like Donald Trump very much ( I don't hate him, I just do like his style) nor endorse his actions; where the former president was blamed for instigating the Capitol Hill Riots on the 6th of January 2021, I do however feel that Donald Trump has the right to a fair and correctly orchestrated hearing by those accusing him of causing or attempting to cause an insurrection or rebellion. A riot caused by instigators within, is not an insurrection nor uprising. A violent uprising against an authority or government , by one person single handedly, or with 2000 supporters, could not initiate an effective uprising, to satisfy the section within the 14th Amendment, nor is a there any indication of an armed resistance taking place to satisfy the said section of the Amendment; all because a few people were caught with loaded guns; not in the USA where guns and its culture are common aspect of life in 2024, as it was in 1866 when the 14th Amendment came to effect. Insurrection nor the auspices of a rebellion are truly evident; as one person or one person and 2000 unknown others, could not technically ‘overturn’ the United States Government; unless that person controls the military-–of which Donald trump did not. It’s a ludicrous suggestion an trivialise rebellions and insurrections as being on par with a politician exciting a crowd. An unruly mob of around 2000 rowdy Trump listeners and followers; come rioters-–is just that. Donald Trump is not an intelligent person and he is not ‘ fit for purpose’ of holding the highest office in America. He is a business man, a salesman, best suited conducting business deals on his own terms.You do not need to be intelligent to make money. However you do need to be intelligent to run a country like the USA. 400 Million people deserve better, and can do better than Trump. Unlike our ‘liberal’ democratic system (In Australia) where the concerns of the minority over the minority holds no sway, the opposite is true of American Democratic Republican system of government ( defined as flawed democracy ) where the voice of the minority is not governed by what the majority want or demand. Donald Trump needs to be given the right to be fairly heard through his lawyers and he ought to listen to what his lawyers are telling him. Instructions to just ‘shut up’ ought to be heeded by Trump. Donald Trump does not have the intelligence nor means needed to overrun a government; for to do so would require (just like in homicide cases) intent, and considerable planing–with complicit others.
A boisterous and not too intelligent person named Donald Trump ran for presidency and lost. 2 months later an agitated simple minded person, not too intelligent and indeed a sore loser showed his dissatisfaction with the decision that allowed President Joe Biden to win the election. 2000 or so, mostly socially compromised people, heard what they wanted to hear; and from the few, the riots commenced.

The facts are:
1. There is no evidence of Donald Trump having instantaneously or with intent planned to ‘overthrow’ a government alone or with complicit others
2. There is no evidence of anyone was complicit in assisting Donald Trump to ‘overthrow’ the government.
3. There is no evidence of any communication with any military personal making ready to overthrow a government on the instructions of Donald Trump.
4. There are no documents nor evidence via communications, that Donald Trump was planing an insurrection and rebellion, as such;
5. Donald Trump being accused for inciting a insurrection, a rebellion or both is simply not evident.

A not too intelligent person by the name of Donald Trump ran for the presidency and lost. As a sore loser, his rants attracts around 2000 people, who when prompted by a leading few decided to break into and run a rampage inside the Capitol Hill building. It seems to me that 2000 rioters; or the ringleaders, at the least; should have been charged and arrested for trespass as well as property damage, and assault; provides an unambiguous perspective. It seems to me that security forces were not prepared for such an event like a heated riot; to suggest they would be prepared for a rebellion or insurrection delivers the many ‘shadows of doubt’ needed to dismiss the claim that Donald Trump instigated a riot for the purpose of overthrowing a government as no government was actually under threat, nor could be overrun ‘by one single person,’ is the right perspective. Security forces and agencies who are experts at tracking ‘eminent dangers’ could not stop a genuine rebellion or insurrection if one truly had taken place, is now also evident. Donald Trump the salesman, must be allowed to run for and lose the presidency for a second term ‘on merit.’ The American constitution gives Trump that right. Those accusing him of insurrection and rebellion are doing so on an unfounded platform. If Donald Trump is charged for causing an insurrection or rebellion, then the American constitution needed to be revised. A cool and calm, President Joe Biden’ has kept the ship away from the surf and spray,’ in very trying times– a feat that Donald Trump could not emulate. Stupid people running amok after hearing words expressed by a stupid person does not constitute a rebellion nor insurrection.It represent the actions of people who follow a cult: Added Update. On February 2024, the dumbness of Trump and all who follow him has been thoroughly exposed, for suggesting Russia take on Nato ( Nato would destroy Russia , if such an event ever happened) for not paying their bills. Here is a man, who is a racist, bigot, sexist, TV personality, a 'rip off' merchant, and moron, whose whole life is questionable, who does not pay his lawyers and has ripped of past employees their lowly wages - making such a statement. Trump hates poor people, he hates anyone getting social security benefits and believes that such people should not be heard let alone seen. Those who follow Trump are actually the very kind of people he loathes the most. He has never helped anyone unless there is money to be made at the end of the table. He'll 'lick anyone's arse' even Putin, if it means making a dollar, and Putin knows this. Putin knows as much as does President Xi. This human being likes eating alone, because he is indeed ' not of sound mind.' Voting for Joe Biden is indeed the far better leader for Americans; being slow in mind also means being careful as well; being of unsound mind, on the other hand could destroy the world. Only a person with half a brain would vote for Trump. How desperate are the Republican, to allow this 'repulsive turd of a person' to represent their party. Trump is a fake just like his wealth.

KTT AND BANKS


KTT AND BANKS
9/1/2024
Key Tested Telex for payment made via a L/C is still a very active application. All the main banks of the world still use KTT. Poor decision making lacking insight by Governments in Australia has led to home and businesses getting rid of the facsimile machine with the onset of broadband modems. The KTT applicant in with support of a facsimile machine can in effect be used to close commodity deals at a much safer level than using the internet email system; and yet in 2024 these older aspect of conducting business internationally is rarely discussed. FTNX will accept hardcopies of a UCP 600 endorsed L/C advised by air mail, at the counter of any major bank, is still valid very safe arrangement, when compared to the alternative.

NO SENSE ON CRUDE PRICES


NO SENSE ON CRUDE PRICES
10/1/2024
The inception EV industry is fully advancing and yet crude oil prices remain low. I suspect plenty Russian crude oil and by products are being purchased for use by countries bearing Russian sanctions- especially cheap jet fuel, which is the biggest single contributor of emissions. It seems the crude oil industry is keeping prices low intentionally, to prolong the use of gasoline. With 14% of EV users now in effect world wide ;the expectation that as the EV market grows, so will the price of gasoline rise - a perspective yet to be realised. It seems that when the world hits 20 % EV use, the price of gasoline will skyrocket; I can see $200.00 per barrel of crude oil price basis coming in the near future; the nature of business is just that. Less users means higher prices. I expect as the 20% EV user aspect nears (if?), so will the price of gasoline and D2 rise. Currently consumer goods both imported and domestic are priced at an all time high - at the retail level, while at the gate producers and farmer are receiving less. High prices on the shelf have been blamed on import and freight cost, when the truth is that there is a huge disparity between gate prices and goods sold at retail, where retail giants are the entities applying high charges on goods as a method of securing unjust high profits, while importers, exporters and freight are being blamed for such increases. Climate change nonsense is going to create economic woes in the future unlike anything we have seen before.The disparity been spot prices and future prices will also grow in where as products becomes scarce; prices are increased accordingly. Pound per pound to this very day, crude oil produces the most energy of any other comparable non nuclear based product. It true worth has yet to be tested.

CLIMATE CHANGE IS WRONG


CLIMATE CHANGE
19 Jan 2024
The verdict is in, reinforcing what FTNX first declared in 2013. In my opinion climate change is the biggest hoax ever created by man’s greed. In September 2023, Australians were told to brace for the hottest summer ever. Instead, we have been flooded out. The amount of resources , energy, time and complex calculations/models needed to predict the weather in collaboration with leading scientific agencies world wide has produced a wrong result. The same related study of the weather is directly related to the study applied in arriving at the climate change scenario. Extreme weather events and climate shifting is not climate change and that scientists who cannot accurately predict the weather are the same people who have endorsed climate change. How did they get it so wrong? So much for AI? ‘Well if everyone reads from the wrong book, then one can expect the same answer to eventuate. When the study is wrong, so will the outcome be wrong.” Climate change and the Coronavirus are the two drivers around the world that has caused an increase in prices at the supermarket self in 2024. Add to this , carriers are being blamed for high freight charges as the reason why prices are high at the consumer level; which is another ‘tall story.’ I think laws ought to be in place where scientist and media who promote a global event which does not occur, are blamed for inciting panic. There is no evidence , proving climate change is upon us; no evidence that cannot be reasonably argued upon. Ostensibly Jet fuel alone produces much more damaging emission that all the gas powered cars in the world, and yet jets continue flying at an increasing rate yearly.The PCT is to continue dealing in fuels, coal and crude oil- because for all the rhetoric , without such fossil fuels , the world comes to a dramatic stop - a scenario which will bring upon the whole world far more global devastation that climate change could ever do.

HIGH FREIGHT


FREIGHT RATES HIGH
2 Feb 2024
Sending a FCL via the Suez Canal is not longer and option for many carriers due to increase attacks by drones . A FCL going from Singapore to Rotterdam around Sth Africa bears distance of 11,800 N/m is now around US$ 5000.00, compared with the same ship going through the Suez Canal which averaged around US$ 1400,00 per each FCL. But ! Having said as much, I’m afraid the higher freight charge is now going to triple or quadruple the price of goods, by the time imported goods reach consumers at retail, and will fuel excuses on why such goods are so expensive. Importing 20,000 bottles of lets say wine, means the freight component is 25 cent per bottle, and yet by the time the Wine hits the real stores , a GP of 200% or more is added to the wine ‘ because of increase in freight rates.’ If goods usually costing with added US$ 1400.00 in freight; at retail lets say an imported product usually costs US$ 5.00 per unit adding 25 cents to the retail price will cover a huge increase in freight rates; and yet we have seen in the last month , prices for goods costing around $5.00 per unit is selling for 8,9 or even 10 dollars per unit at retail ‘ because' of ‘high freight charges,’ Is the poorest excuse one could use, by a store owner, to justify such increased prices at retail. It is the large owners of retail business, like supermarkets who are charging consumers the high rip off prices being recorded in recent times, who are simply blaming import costs as being the culprit. Consumer must return to shopping at ground level by visiting stores and finding where the best prices are- only competition can stop this assault on consumers. Large corporate giants destroying small business, destroys competition. A small country like Australia has only a day to two supply of some basic foods items; it is embarrassing for a country like of Australia to ‘run out of beetroot’ or having to pay 7 or 8 dollar for one kilo of potatoes. The supply of agricultural products and food- will become the hot commodities in the near future as large parts of the world could indeed face bouts of famine at a scale unseen before.

STOP THE MURDER OF PALESTINIANS


ENOUGH IS IS ENOUGH: PALESTINIANS.
29 April 2024:
Personal opinion served without prejudice.

The poor and defenceless people of Palestine are suffering immensely, especially children, who are dying mercilessly at the hands of modern highly trained and armed soldiers, in droves, for the doings, not of their making. Western democratic counties, must show the world ( In particular authoritarian governments) the unity and common values such countries adhere by, by stopping the murderous acts and indeed war crimes being committed with this one sided act of acquiring land via an unjust and illegal conquest. To fight a weak force, by killing anyone standing in their way - is murder by any definition. Democracies should demonstrate to the world how the much the said virtues pertaining to the the ‘rule of law’ has been justly applied in stopping the Israeli government from exterminating the Palestinian race. Where is the passage under UN Human Rights Law; as it applies in allowing a poor impoverished unarmed race of people to be murdered indiscriminately, by a superior force - is an allowable and legal act. It seems western democracies preach a lot about their values, but apply to practice very little of its virtues. We have a Holocaust occurring in front of western eyes; and nobody is doing anything to stop it. Palestinian women, men and children and being killed indiscriminately for no justifiable reason; and they call Palestinians ‘terrorists,' when they try and defend themselves, with sticks and stones. Hamas fired a few rockets in a desperate act of a long simmering frustration. Israeli responded with a plan to destroy Palestine. Palestinians have been pushed shoved and treated poorly for thousands of years - and yet it is they who are deemed the aggressors. Palestinians were here before Christ and Moses; and now all such people are displaced. As for the United States of America, “Justice wears a face mask, because “Justice” is meant to be fair, equal, and merciful without prejudice; however its not meant to also be blind to matters of murder and genocide.’ Palestinians have earned the right to live in Palestine, as they have earned such a right with the ‘cuts from a thousand swords.’ Take away this basic freedom and rights from hungry desperate people using sticks and stones, will only breed contempt an retribution by those who have lost everything. To continue with this slaughter of any people who have nothing to lose, will allow the propagation of evil acts to flourish. Where is the humanity? Thousands of Israeli people are protesting today on the streets of Tel Aviv at the way the Israeli government is using such deadly force against an impoverished displaced people of Palestine– for nothing more than illegally acquiring land. Sure the excuses are many as is the rhetoric being churned out thick and fast, the fact however is simple to comprehend . A superior full armed army taking on and annihilating defenceless people who for most are innocent of any ill doings. The Israeli government via it leader Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu are war criminals. USA should be ashamed and disgraced in harbouring the friendship of murderers. A small number of Palestinians doing the wrong thing, should not be brought upon the whole Palestinian race to bear, the consequences of their actions. We hear such comments in the USA when an American civilian shoots many people in the streets, via a mass shooting event; in where the the American gun lobby gets up on its Dias, to declare that all Americans bearing guns should not be blamed for the actions of a few. It seems that “ the gloves does not fit all.”Palestinians have the right to self determination and the right to live on land bearing our ancestry for over 5000 years. You would have to be both stupid and dumb to say anything different.This aspect makes the Palestinians ‘natives’ of a region. Natives, under the rule of law, have human rights.

The EC and USA must stop this war, before the blood of the last Palestinians - run dry, and before a precedent is established for the rest of us, that can never be reversed. The act of a few, does not reflect the sentiments of a whole race of people.Wealthy entities in peer related countries, should band together and fund an immediate issuance of a summons to bring Israeli Government before the world court (UN Human Rights Courts) as a means to cause a pause in the continuation of this ongoing slaughter of innocent civilians in Palestine. Isreal has killed many people, to let this act slide. The charge? Unjustified and intentional mass murder of civilians, and for conquering land belonging to native inhabintants. The Government of Isreal practices a flawed democracy and is a member of the U.N. The state of Isreal became independent in 1948 with the support of international law ; to “exist within a portion of the territory along with an Arab statue.” That was one of the the conditions Israel agreed upon. Now they want it all– at any cost. In Western democracies an aspect of law called ‘compensation’ is an attribute of law that most democratic countries understand extremely well; when an entity has suffered from a wrong doing brought on by another, in an unjust manner, damages may be sought.

Compensation for indiscriminately killing people and for illegal conquest. Split half of Isreal’s land mass, all the way to the to coastline; to be handed over to the remaining Palestinians to rebuild their homeland, this time to include their own port–for breaching the 1948 agreement. I would seek such compensation using native title law to provide a persuasive argument to reinforce such a claim. The rule of law is able to decide on this matter proficiently under naturally applicable “native title rights”–something a long standing UN member like Isreal cannot avoid to face. International laws are not able to override matters of native title laws; such laws already familiar to countries like Canada, USA and indeed Australia–just to name a few. Palestinians need only the ‘show’ its long connection to the land to succeed on the claim.No statehood ,but an actual country called Palestine must be initiated and incepted , if long term peace is to ensue in this region. I would also commence war crime proceeding against Isreal, to remind the rest of the world–no matter who you are, when you do wrong in battle, the time to pay for your actions commence when the battle is over.

As for the ‘Laws’ of Isreal, in part. King Solomon, sought to cut the child in half; but relented when one mother said go ahead, while the other said, ‘don’t kill the child, give him whole and alive to the other women.’ In his wisdom, King Solomon gave the child to the women who was painfully prepared to surrender the living child to the other women. Palestinians must make Isreal front a legal forum to show their territorial rights, under the very strong attributes native title; when Isreal has potentially– a lot to lose, perhaps then, Israel will then make the only right decision.

“I may not like a race of people, their creed, lifestyle or what they stand for, but I will fight to the end in defending their lawful rights. Who among us is so righteous, in being able to throw stones at others. Are we not, each one of us, ostensibly, “Knights” of the whole realm. When the majority does wrong against the rights of a minority, the majority is wrong.

TRANSSHIPMENTS NOT ALLOWED


TRANSSHIPMENTS
14 MAY 2024

Transhipment of export goods is the latest well utilised delivery procedures designed to work around Western induced sanctions. A product is shipped by e.g: Russia, where the goods are reloaded onto another ship as a method to stop tracking applications.The new shipment is then sold to a country not bearing western sanctions, for reselling as goods of another origin, by submitting a new COO as part of the presentation process. USCT members are reminded that we are unable to handle or deal in transshipped goods. If a PCT wants to use the doctrine safely then transshipped goods cannot be traded , even if issues pertaining to sanctions are not a concern. This is one of the security issues embedded in the FTNX doctrine and applies under current UCP DLC rules. A PCT looking to ensure they cannot get circumvented on a deal must obey the FTNX trading process or face consequences otherwise. The whole doctrine was developed because circumvention was rife before we came onto the scene. If a PCT is working on a transshipped deal, it loses the right to use a UCP 600 DLC and must attempt to secure commission payments on goods that can’t even be traced let alone verified- once transshipment are apparent. The PCT is unable to act on a transshipped deal because they have no BOL to serve; and waybills cannot be used under UCP DLC applications. A barge loading a mother ship, NBC cargo transferred mid ocean to another ship or FCLs being transshipped from a central hub are commodity deals that cannot be effectively traded by a PCT as its impossible to collect on any commission payment being assured on such deals. For a ship bearing 10,000 MT of lets say Jet fuel being loaded from a country not nearing western sanctions, is topped up with 70,000 MT of sanctioned Jet fuel to represent a new 80,0000 MT load supported by a new PSI certification, has the same effect- changing the quality of the goods even slightly in law may indeed support the idea that the original sanctioned products no longer exists.These tricks to get around western sanction do not support the business application of the PCT in any form.

DUMP DIRTY TRUMP II


DUMP DIRTY TRUMP II
31 May 2024
Finally we have a verdict against as disgusting immoral person named Trump. It seems the USA legal system had worked. What I am not understanding is the idea that if a person in the USA applies for meaningful work with a criminal record, the chances of landing such work is literally nil. Here we have a convicted felon named Trump , with a criminal record, running for the top job of the land. This part I don’t get. I don’t get the idea that there are enough stupid people in the USA willing to vote for this person into the Whitehouse. I think voters need to sit for an IQ test before allowing them to cast a vote, where anyone found with with an IQ lower than 80 cannot vote. A person of unsound mind should not be allowed to vote. Potential jurors get vetted, then why not the voters. Trump is a dirty corrupt, dishonourable and a proven immoral person.American people deserve much more. A least with Biden his only job is ‘keep the ship away from the surf and spray.’
