Hungary’s Migrant Stance, Once Denounced, Gains Some Acceptance

Like most members of Hungary’s liberal intellectual elite, George Konrad, a distinguished novelist, loathes his country’s stridently illiberal prime minister, Viktor Orban.

“He is not a good democrat and I don’t believe he is a good person,” said Mr. Konrad, a veteran of communist-era struggles against dictatorship.

All the same, he thinks Mr. Orban, the self-declared scourge of mainstream elites across Europe, was right and Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany was wrong about how to respond to the chaotic flood of migrants seeking refuge from war and poverty — perhaps Europe’s most serious crisis since World War II.

US Elites Are Trying to Destroy Europe with Immigrants

A side effect of the American neocon strategy of up-ending the Middle East is to flood Europe, and in particular, Germany, the continent's dominant power, with non-Christian immigrants. The author argues that this is deliberate, and that Merkel and Obama are neocon patsies, leading Europe to destruction, and that Russia is one of the few countries whose leadership understands what is happening, and is fighting back. A few years ago, views like these would be considered on the fringe. Today they are going mainstream. Witness the popularity of Donald Trump...

Europe, Turkey Close Airspace To Russian Warplanes Flying Anti-ISIS Missions, General Says

Well in the course of detailing Russia’s long-range bomber missions, Konovalov noted that the Tu-160s were forced to fly from the airfield of Olenegorsk in Russia’s northwestern Murmansk Region.

Why is this notable, you ask? Here's Konovalov again: “Europe didn’t let us fly; Turkey didn’t let us fly, but we showed that even is such conditions we’re capable of coping with the task using airfields on the Russian territory."

In other words, Europe and Turkey declined to allow Russia to use their airspace on the way to conducting airstrikes against the very same terrorists that attacked Paris just four days before the long-range warplanes were deployed to the fight in Syria.

Soros Plays Both Ends in Syria Refugee Chaos

Since John D. Rockefeller was advised to protect his wealth from government taxation by creating a tax-exempt philanthropic foundation in 1913, foundations have been used by American oligarchs to disguise a world of dirty deeds under the cover “doing good for mankind,” known by the moniker “philanthropy” for mankind-loving. No less the case is that of George Soros who likely has more tax-exempt foundations under his belt than anyone around. His Open Society foundations are in every country where Washington wants to put ‘their man’ in, or at least get someone out who doesn’t know how to read their music. They played a key role in regime change in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe after 1989. Now his foundations are up to their eyeballs in promoting propaganda serving the US-UK war agenda for destroying stability in Syria as they did in Libya three years ago, creating the current EU refugee crisis.

Poland sends troops to enforce ‘dismissal’ of NATO intel center head

The new Polish authorities have sent military police on an overnight visit to the NATO Counter Intelligence Center of Excellence in Warsaw to “enforce the replacement of the center’s head.”

Defense Ministry spokesman Bartlomiej Misiewicz explained the move by saying the head of the training center, Colonel Krzysztof Dusza, had failed to fulfill a dismissal order last week.

The reshuffle was needed as the employees of the center weren’t supported by the Polish government, Deputy Defense Minister Bartosz Kownacki told RMF radio.

Watch This Teen Punch the Spanish Prime Minister in the Face. Hard.

Last night a seventeen year old punched Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy right in the side of the head. He later told the newspaper El Pais, “I’m glad”.

Apparently millennials give Rajoy a lower rating than even fascist dictator Francisco Franco once had, likely due to a massive 51 percent unemployment rate in their age bracket there coupled with Rajoy’s stringent austerity policies.

Cameron's hastily-organised EU speech descends into an embarrassing shambles as the Royal crest falls off his lectern

David Cameron's press conference in Brussels last night descended into an embarrassing shambles after the Royal crest fell off his lectern as he spoke.

The Prime Minister's midnight speech was so hastily organised that aides were hurriedly putting up the British flag on the podium just minutes before he addressed reporters.

A cardboard oval with the UK government's coat of arms was attached to the lectern using double sided tape - but became dislodged while Mr Cameron was talking.

EU summit approves idea of creating supranational border guard agency — Tusk

According to Tusk, without the protection of the external borders the EU will fail as a political community. But today there is cause for optimism because all the leaders have agreed to protect the external borders. In this connection it has been decided to urgently consider the proposal on the establishment of the border guard agency, he said. "In this context, we agreed to rapidly examine the European Commission's proposal of strengthening the EU's external borders, including the European Border Guard idea. Ministers should adopt their position by July, but the leaders' broad acceptance means that in the future Europe will not remain vulnerable because the Schengen border is insufficiently protected," Tusk said. According to him, "This evening I have also received good news from Frontex about an agreement with Greece on deploying a Rapid Border Intervention Team already in December.

US Refuses to Tell France Who Financed Paris Terror Attacks

The US has refused to respond to French inquiries regarding terrorist funding sources, according to sources in the French Finance Ministry.

United States authorities have yet to respond to multiple requests from France on sources of funding for Daesh terrorists tied to the November 13 Paris attacks, a French Finance Ministry source told Reuters.

The US and the European Union signed an agreement called the Terrorist Finance Tracking Program in 2010, which allowed EU countries to rely on the US for information on terrorist groups' finance flows. Prior to the Paris attacks, the US turned down requests from France to reveal the financial flows funding the January 7 attacks on the Charlie Hebdo newspaper and a Jewish supermarket, saying France "did not provide enough details."

"I don't think that they will dare use this argument for the latest request concerning very specific people identified as being behind the Paris attacks," the source told Reuters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This underscores this horrific attack being a false flag; that's why the US government is noticeably silent on coughing up any info for the French that would help in the investigation.

However, there were several agendas which were very much accomplished, after these attacks.

Now, France is looking to extend their "emergency powers" by writing them into their Constitution; secondly, it gave President Obama another eve t with with to grandstand on his anti-gun policies.

Ukrainian and NATO Sign Defense Agreement

Officials from NATO and Ukraine agreed on a road map Wednesday for greater cooperation between the organization and the troubled country.

Patrick Auroy, NATO’s assistant secretary general for defense investment, and Oleg Gladkovskyi, first deputy secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, were present to sign off on the NATO-Ukraine Defense-Technical Co-operation.

The agreement includes promises to improve Ukraine’s defense industry and armed forces, as well as deepening cooperation between the alliance and Kiev in defense science and technology.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko will meet with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at NATO headquarters in Brussels on Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One wonders just how soon Ukraine will be granted full membership in NATO, which will allow it to invoke Article 5 of the NATO charter, stating that any attack against one NATO member is to be considered an attack against all of them.

Might NATO be contemplating conducting a military assault against Russia,sparked by some false flag in Ukraine at some point in the not too distant future?

Right now, with they way NATO has been storing military equipment and enhancing troop strength in Eastern Europe, I would not bet against such a scenario taking place.

Putin Throws Down the Gauntlet

This isn’t a game, it’s a fight for survival; Russia’s survival as a sovereign country. That’s what the stakes are. That’s not something Putin takes lightly.

Would you be willing to defend your country against a foreign invasion?

That’s all Putin is doing in Syria. He’s just preempting the tidal wave of jihadis that’ll be coming his way once the current fracas is over. He figures it’s better to exterminate these US-backed maniacs in Syria now than face them in Chechnya, St Petersburg and Moscow sometime in the future. Can you blame him? After all, if Washington’s strategy works in Syria, then you can bet they’ll try the same thing in Beirut, Tehran and Moscow.

So what choice does Putin have?

On 14 October, it celebrated the first Defenders’ Day, a national holiday legally decreed by the Ukrainian Parliament. The date is significant, for on this day, seventy-three years ago, the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) was founded. In WW II, UPA cooperated with the Nazis, supplying a Ukrainian voluntary SS division– the SS Freiwillingen-Schutzen-Division “Galizien,” the infamous Galitian Division.

The coordinated effort by senators and members of the House of Representatives, as well as by a congressional committee, formed part of a sophisticated, multimillion-pound lobbying drive in Brussels, which Google has significantly ramped up as it fends off challenges to its dominance in Europe.

‘Austria Isn’t What We Expected’: Refugees Returning to War-Torn Homes

“Dogs are treated better than refugees in Austria,” say asylum seekers from war-torn countries, commenting on European hospitality.

Citing a perceived lack of security, the fear of deportation, abuse, and homesickness, refugees who fled from Afghanistan, Iraq and Kosovo are reluctant to stay in Austria.

Some months have passed since Austrian citizens marched in a pro-refugee rally, welcoming asylum seekers fleeing conflict and poverty in their home countries. Now the same refugees complain of a lack of food and clothes, and that the expected shorter asylum process from Austrian authorities has not taken place as promised.

Jewish doctor says: ‘Rape White women and create half-breeds!’

A Jewish-run publication in France publishes a doctor’s article calling for the rape and forcible impregnation of White nationalist French girls. This is war, white men and women. You must awaken, because the perpetrators of European genocide will use the vilest means.

Soviet propagandist Ilya Ehrenburg called for this same thing, inflaming the brutes of the Red Army to rape and kill German girls, and they did exactly that. Two million women and little girls were raped, many to death, at the hands of these foul creatures, the evil of whom cannot be spoken in human tongue. This same vile pornographic sadism lives on in the wicked man below, whose very eyes betray the evil that lies within. God help us! Retour des Croisades! Battre! Battre! pour les femmes de France, pour les femmes de l’Europe!”

NATO Military Buildup on Russia’s Doorstep: Bracing for War?

NATO has considerably increased its military presence in the Baltic countries, Poland and Romania and is actively drawing ever new states into its orbit, Russia’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said.

“In the past year alone NATO has deployed thirteen times more troops, eight times more military aircraft and up to 300 tanks and infantry fighting vehicles to the Baltic states, Poland and Romania,” Shoigu told an annual meeting of top Russian military officials in Moscow.

The 28-nation North Atlantic Alliance is actively facilitating the entry of the former Yugoslav republics, Georgia and Ukraine and is drawing Finland, Sweden and Moldavia into its orbit. It has also set up a cybersecurity center in Estonia and a strategic propaganda center in Latvia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is very clear to me that military equipment and personnel are being pre-positioned for a military conflict between NATO and Russia.

Unfortunately, just because such an action would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US and NATO can do is absolutely no guarantee that they will not do it.

The conflict has already started, between the situations in Ukraine and Syria; as to when it will actually land on the consciousness of Americans, that their government has led them into a bloody, barbaric war, ultimately over whose "ink and paper currency" will reign supreme, I cannot tell you, but I have one suggestion.

Be aware; there is draft legislation "brewing" in the House Armed Services Committee; and this time it will take your daughters as well as your sons, with women approved for combat duty. Congress is waiting for the "right psychological moment" to pass this, when they feel they will have the minimum of "fuss" about it.

Perhaps that is the moment, when this legislation is passed, that Americans will wake up, and understand, with painful and amazing clarity, that their government has just dragged them into World War III.

DO YOU WANT YOUR CHILDREN TO DIE FOR MONTENEGRO?

Get used to the possibility that your son or daughter might end up dying for Montenegro because that country has just been invited to become the latest member of NATO, the Cold War organization that was brought into existence to defend Europe from America’s World War II partner and ally, the Soviet Union.

Just in case you’ve never heard of Montenegro or maybe don’t know where it is, here’s a link to Wikipedia’s page on the country: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montenegro. It seems to me that if your son or daughter might have to die in the defense of Montenegro, you might want to know a little about it or at least where it is located.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why the US and NATO are enabling Turkey against Russia; to create a (false flag) incident, allowing Turkey to invoke Article 5 of the NATO charter, which states that if one NATO country is attacked, it is as though all NATO countries have been attacked, and must come to that country's aid, militarily

As a Europhile British ex-pat who has spent most of his adult life living on “the continent,” as we Brits are fond of calling the non-British part of Europe, it might seem rather odd to be encouraging my fellow Brits to vote to leave the European Union.

DIRTY BUSINESS: SWISS OIL TRADERS CAUGHT EXPORTING DAESH-EXTRACTED OIL

Swiss oil traders might have gotten themselves into some trouble after it was revealed that they regularly imported oil from terminals in Turkey, where Daesh, also known as ISIL/ISIS, sold their illegal oil supply, the Swiss newspaper Le Matin reported.

The newspaper obtained documents showing that several major Swiss petroleum trading companies exported oil from the Turkish city of Ceyhan, one of the places in the country where Daesh-extracted oil was sold.

"The risk [of Swiss companies importing Daesh-oil] is very high," said Jean-Charles Brisard, a French expert on terrorism financing, according to Le Matin.

As Daesh sold oil for a cheaper price than its official market price, many customers didn't mind buying it, although there was an official ban to purchase oil from Daesh-controlled territories.

"Timofti would be glad to resign, but he is not allowed to do this, that’s why he needs help. We will then hold one strong rally and end up with this.

Putin Goes on the Offensive (And It's Not in Syria)

President Putin’s 2015 remarks to the Valdai assemblage mark his most dramatic break with any lingering sentiment that partnership with the United States is still possible, feasible, or even desirable. Even more than his famed 2007 speech to the Munich Security Conference, with his complaints about Washington’s foreign policy, the current remarks in Sochi make it clear that the hope for reviving the immediate post-9/11 antiterrorism coalition and that this might serve as a basis for improving U.S.-Russian relations have no grounding in reality.

Putin’s speech certainly covered a tremendous amount of ground:

- Articulating points that the United States ginned up a largely imaginary Iranian nuclear threat to justify its moves in the Middle East and the deployment of a theater anti-ballistic missile system in Europe;

- That the U.S. is prepared to support terrorist organizations in the Middle East if they can be used as battering rams against regimes Washington dislikes;

German police found a WWII tank, an anti-aircraft gun, and a torpedo in a raid on a house belonging to an elderly man. The man’s property had been searched previously on suspicion that stolen Nazi art was being stored there.

The entire contents of the heavy weapons trove, which had been hidden by its 78-year-old owner, were from the World War II era. The biggest pieces of equipment included a 45-ton Panther battle tank, a 3.5 inch anti-aircraft gun and a torpedo.

The IMF Just Entered The Cold War, Forgives Ukraine's Debt To Russia

For over half a year there was a semi-public discussion with U.S. Treasury advisors and Cold Warriors about how to stiff Russia on the $3 billion owed by Ukraine to Russia’s Sovereign Wealth Fund.

In the end, the IMF simply lent Ukraine the money.

By doing so, it announced its new policy: “We only enforce debts owed in US dollars to US allies.” This means that what was simmering as a Cold War against Russia has now turned into a full-blown division of the world into the Dollar Bloc (with its satellite Euro and other pro-U.S. currencies) and the BRICS or other countries not in the U.S. financial and military orbit.
