Bratislava: The Petty European Union Summit

The 27 States who want to remain in the European Union met in Bratislava (Slovakia) for a separate summit – which means without the United Kingdom. They were there to think about their common project, but did little more than rehash the same old songs. The world is changing. The United Kingdom is adapting. The European Union is stagnating. Three months after the decision by the British electorate to ...Read full article...

France wants TTIP Negotiations Terminated

Matthias Fekl, Foreign Trade Secretary, has said there is not enough political support to continue negotiating the TTIP. Whether the latest statement by the French Secretary is just political theater or not is still unknown, but it seems that France is about to give a blow to the controversial negotiations on the free trade agreement between the European Union and the United States. “If discussions can not reach an ...Read full article...

TTIP: Another reason why Trump Must Lose in November

All leaders tacitly defend the TTIP as a source of growth and employment for the two great world economic blocs. It is exactly that very fact that has made millions of people in Europe and the United States reject the TTIP and the TPP. In general terms, what is good for the globalists is bad for the people and vice-versa. Rejection of the TTIP and the TPP is blamed ...Read full article...

Is Europe Doomed By Vassalage To Washington?

It is for the European governments to follow the lead of the British and exit the CIA-created European Union. “One Ring to rule them all . . . and in the darkness bind them.” J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings World War II resulted in Europe being conquered, not by Berlin but by Washington. The conquest was certain but not all at once. Washington’s conquest of Europe resulted ...Read full article...

François Hollande has not revealed whether he will be a candidate for reelection in the presidential elections of 2017 but, during the traditional televised interview he gave on Thursday to mark the French national holiday on July 14, he hinted that he will not throw in the towel due to what he called ‘the difficulties” facing the country. “France is a great country.

Hyping Terrorism, Stoking Fear Following Nice, France Incident

Muslims are convenient scapegoats of choice in America, other Western societies and Israel. Islamophobia rages, boosted by Bastille Day violence in Nice. Western media said lone jihadist lorry driver/gunman Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel singlehandedly mowed down or shot over 200 holiday celebrants in Nice overnight – killing scores, injuring many others, the claim defying credibility. How could one person cause so many casualties before being stopped? Logic suggests more than ...Read full article...

Brussels’ Human Trafficking Scheme

It offers 10,000 euros for each refugee hosted by a European State. The European Commission wants to make it obligatory that European member-States receive refugees from countries outside the EU. It proposes a common scheme which will have an economic ‘incentive’ of 10,000 euros for each asylum seeker to resettle in EU countries. “The exact number of resettlers will be fixed by the European Council as supposed to each ...Read full article...

Britain’s Iron Lady 2.0?

Described by a former associate as “hard as nails,” perhaps Theresa May is the second “iron lady of the Western World” designate, what former prime minister Margaret Thatcher once called herself. Separately, she defiantly said “(t)o those waiting with bated breath for that favorite media catchphrase, the ‘U’ turn, I have only one thing to say. You turn if you want to. The lady’s not for turning.” On Monday, ...Read full article...

War Criminals Roam Free after Killing Millions

When will war criminals like George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Tony Blair and Hillary Clinton be held accountable for their crimes? Sorrow and regret do not make war crimes go away, but resorting to illegal means to carry them out do make them punishable. The Chilcot report, which was made public on Wednesday, details the UK involvement in the Iraq war and the role played by accomplices Tony Blair and ...Read full article...

France Embraces “Governing” by Decree

For the fourth time in this legislature, the French government annulled the parliamentary vote and used a decree to push through labor-related reform. It is the fourth time that the French Executive shows its weakness and lack of desire to govern as it is supposed to do. Instead, the French Prime Minister, Manuel Valls has rammed through legislation that did not have the support he wanted in Parliament as ...Read full article...

The British Revolt to the EU Establishment

Is Brexit just about nationalism and independence, or is it also about a multipolar world? It really meant nothing to the British that their government, the opposition, trade unions, bankers, the IMF and even Barack Obama himself warned them that a vote for Brexit equaled suicide. The more confidence was shown by the supporters of remaining in the EU, the more distrust grew in the Brexit camp. Although pro-Brexit voters ...Read full article...

Spain taps into Reserves to pay for Social Security Obligations

Reserves will disappear in 2017 if no solution is found to the deficit. The government of Spain had to resort to its reserves to pay for Social Security and pensions for the month of July. It had to take 8,7 billion euros from the Reserve Fund, the largest one-time withdrawal to date. Following this transaction,  there are only 25,17 billion euros saved, the equivalent to 2.33% of GDP.
