At the moment, thought transfers and mentalists or making contact through a medium are particularly in demand.

Whether a magician wants to network with others is of course up to him.

The gullibility of the people

Magic Christian clearly enjoys the job of a magician. He has already seen a lot in his numerous appearances around the world. A trick is successful when it makes people think. Amazed faces are the best compliments to a magician. To be successful in the industry, you have to follow the trends. At the moment, thought transfers and mentalists or making contact through a medium are particularly in demand. Over the past few decades, Magic Christian has found that people in crisis situations are more open to magical or spiritual forms of entertainment. “” People are terrifyingly gullible, “he says with concern.

“The people are terrifyingly gullible”

Experiences with viewers who ask him full of expectations after the shows to conjure up their sick relatives again make him shudder again and again. In times of economic crisis or war, people seem to yearn for spiritual inspiration rather than objective discussion and verified information. That is why he and his colleagues in the industry have a great deal of responsibility that not every magician lives up to.

Hypocrisy and charlatans

Some magicians or mentalists make unrestrained profits out of people’s misery. For the specialist Magic Christian, who knows how the tricks work, this is often difficult to see. It is very easy to acquire so-called “cold reading” skills these days. In workshops and later through experience, you can learn how to assess people quickly and how to filter out as much information as possible from their posture and appearance. The magicians use this knowledge to perform their thought transmissions and similar tricks.

They let the deceased speak to their relatives or fuel belief in the supernatural with cheap psychological gimmicks. It is the magicians who do not admit afterwards that it was a trick and who insist on the authenticity of their program, who pose a great danger to the people. Magic Christian finds it reprehensible to motivate people to believe in something you don’t believe in yourself.

“It is reprehensible to motivate people to believe in something that you don’t believe in yourself”

The art of wizardry walks a fine line between creative entertainment and dirty hypocrisy. He personally wants to amaze the audience with his entertainment program, which requires high dexterity, professionalism and spontaneity. But it must be clear that it is a trick. He compares his craft with that of a painter, musician or actor, only that, in contrast to this, magic also stimulates the gray matter.123helpme

Although the experienced entertainer claims that he can uncover any trick after a little research at the latest, he likes to be enchanted by a good show.

Sorcery without hypocrisy

Charlatans and cards 🙂 Fits perfectly with the (letter) voting card debacle;) It’s almost like Tricky Niki 🙂

US President Donald Trump criticizes Berlin on all fronts.

At 10:04 a.m., Donald Trump posted a video on his Twitter account with which he started a frontal media attack on Germany. For more than two minutes he talked to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and lists all the wrongdoings of the Federal Republic from his point of view – from an under-defensive defense budget to gas and oil deliveries from Russia.

“Germany fits as an opponent”

This cannot and will not go on like this. Trump seems to have chosen a new main enemy – the previous close ally Germany, which he also wants to impose US punitive tariffs on cars, for example. There are a number of reasons for this. “” As an opponent, Germany fits into its two main narratives ‘burden sharing’ and ‘unfair trade’ “”, says the research director of the German Society for Foreign Policy (DGAP), Daniela Schwarzer. “Trump’s obsession with Germany undoubtedly also has something to do with the fact that his all-right milieu in the USA is panic about seeing a country with an open and liberal society successful,” says the Greens foreign politician Omid Nouripour.

Trump’s fixation on the homeland of his paternal ancestors is not new. According to EU diplomats, he personally resents Merkel for getting on well with his hated predecessor Barack Obama. The fact that Obama praised Merkel beyond measure ensured that Trump eyed her suspiciously from the start – especially since the physicist, with her deliberately controlled political style, represents a counterpoint to the impulsive former real estate manager.

“” Germany bashing “”

Many diplomats describe the relationship between the two as she thinks in “” win-win situations “”, but he only thinks in terms of victory and defeat. And even if Merkel had rejected the New York Times assessment that she was now the leader of the free, liberal world: in fact, with her insistence on the international order, the Chancellor became the antipodin of Trump – much more than French President Emmanuel Macron .

The main reason for the “” Germany bashing “” at the NATO summit is the criticism of what Trump sees as Germany’s low military spending. With just under 1.3 percent of economic output, Germany spends a little more than Trump claims (one percent). But many European allies share the criticism that Europe’s strongest economy is playing a kind of free-rider role in defense policy. The fact that Germany is the second largest provider of troops and financier within NATO does nothing to change this.

“Trump needs a guilty party”

“” If Trump really wants to leave NATO or at least want to reduce US involvement, he needs someone to blame – Germany is a good choice, “says DGAP expert Schwarzer. But Merkel is opposed to this and, according to her own statements, is “” happy “” in talks with Trump in Brussels: The German goal remains to spend 1.5 percent of economic output on the military by 2024. The NATO target is two percent.

As early as 1990 Trump announced in a “Playboy” interview that he would like to impose punitive tariffs on German imported cars. It annoys him that the German corporations have long left their US competitors behind. However, here, too, he met some approval of the EU partners, who also mocked the high German export surpluses. The German government is looking for a dialogue and, unlike French President Emmanuel Macron, would also talk about tariff cuts – Merkel remains tough on the matter. In January 2017, when asked how German consumers could be persuaded to buy US vehicles, the then Minister of Economic Affairs, Sigmar Gabriel, said: “For this the US must build better cars.” “

In response to the feared shrinking trade relations with the USA, contacts with China, for example, are now being expanded. Berlin also supports counter-sanctions from the EU. In the opinion of SPD parliamentary deputy Rolf Mützenich, one can no longer change Trump’s thinking anyway: “” The guiding principle ‘America First’ follows a simple logic: all trading powers are challengers to the USA, “” he says. That is why Germany and China were among the main opponents in Trump’s coordinate system.

Trump combines the demand for a reduction in the trade deficit with the desire to sell more US gas to Europe. So he attacks the new Nord Stream II pipeline project, which is also supposed to bring Russian gas to the EU via the Baltic Sea and Germany. “He also expresses anti-Russian criticism for tactical reasons – precisely because he is accused of having too close a pact with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the USA,” says DGAP expert Schwarzer. Trump is counting on the Balts and Poles to be by his side.

Trump: Merkel is dividing Europe

In the refugee crisis, Trump criticized the Chancellor directly and personally for the first time and accused her of dividing Europe – and he would welcome precisely this division. After the Brexit referendum, Trump expressed the wish that other EU states should leave. A few days ago, the US president also said that the EU was only founded to harm the US. The pro-European attitude of Germany and Merkel in particular is therefore a thorn in his side.

The Berlin federal government is still reacting relatively calmly despite the concerns about the trade dispute. “Trump underestimates the fact that the burden and profit sharing could only work in joint organizations and sets of rules, especially since the Cold War created special conditions,” says SPD politician Mützenich. “All we have left is to strengthen the European structures economically and politically and to further improve the national framework.” “

According to DGAP expert Schwarzer, sitting out Trump will not work. “You have to develop alternatives in the event that there is a further escalation.” “That requires a recalculation of your own attack surfaces. For example, the federal government would have to set up an “overall political cost accounting” for Nord Stream II. Just as higher defense spending is ultimately not important for Trump, but for European reasons, one must ensure that the trenches in the EU are not deepened by the Baltic Sea pipeline. “Because you can only act from a position of strength and unity,” says Schwarzer.

Trump is just jealous because he is the president of a third world country, the behavior is clearly that of a toddler, but we are used to nothing else from Trump. If you want to distract from your own problems then you go exactly this way.

According to diplomats, US President Donald Trump openly threatened NATO to go it alone on defense issues. At the same time he assures the partners loyalty to the alliance.

According to diplomats, US President Donald Trump openly threatened NATO to go it alone on defense issues. If the allies did not immediately spend two percent of their gross domestic product on defense, the Americans would do their own thing, Trump said on Thursday at the summit in Brussels.

Special session of the NATO summit

The German Press Agency learned this from several sources. After Trump’s statements, the 29 allies came together for a special meeting. A press statement by Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU), originally scheduled for 10.15 a.m., has been postponed.

Whether Trump is serious about the threat and what he plans in the event of his demand not being met was initially open. Theoretically, it would be conceivable, for example, to reduce the United States’ NATO engagement – for example, by withdrawing troops stationed in Europe to deter Russia. In the most drastic case, there could even be a break with NATO.

Germany refused to make commitments

At the summit, Germany in particular had previously refused to make far-reaching commitments to increase defense spending. The German government wants to increase the quota to only 1.5 percent of GDP by 2024. She points out that in 2014 the NATO countries only agreed to move in the direction of two percent by 2024.

The US President considers this to be completely inadequate. Trump complains of an unfair burden-sharing and has been attacking Germany in particular for months. According to diplomats, he also addressed Chancellor Merkel personally in his remarks on Thursday morning. A White House spokesman initially did not respond to inquiries on the subject.

Who will reach the two percent target

According to the latest forecasts by NATO, in addition to the USA, only Greece, Great Britain, Poland, Romania and the three Baltic states of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia will achieve the two percent target in 2018. Germany is currently at around 1.24 percent despite significantly increasing defense spending.

US Secretary of Defense James Mattis had already threatened shortly after Trump took office in February 2017 that the US could reduce its involvement in NATO if the allies did not significantly increase their defense spending. At the time, however, he had quickly made it clear that this would not call into question the United States’ obligation to provide assistance.

Merkel speaks of “” very serious discussion “”

Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel has described the discussions in NATO on burden-sharing as “a very serious discussion”. She did not say clearly whether US President Donald Trump threatened to leave the alliance in a crisis meeting on Thursday. To a corresponding question she replied: “” I can only summarize what the result is: a clear commitment by everyone to NATO and a clear willingness to make a contribution in view of the changed security situation.
