Portugal Bars Majority Anti-Austerity Leftists From Taking Office

Blair Inc - A book review

Europe and money are two of the big themes of Blair Inc., a conscientious effort by Francis Beckett, David Hencke and Nick Kochan to uncover the New Labour leader’s activities post No. 10: Europe because the authors claim that Blair still longs for a world role, one the European presidency would provide; and money because they say he has made rather a lot of it since 2007.

It was an old American friend who first alerted me to the Blair family’s fondness for the folding stuff. After seeing Cherie being interviewed on US TV soon after Tony became Labour leader, she told me: ‘My mother had a phrase for people like her – “She’ll go grasping into the grave”.’ Twenty years later, the authors of Blair Inc. tell us that the couple now own 36 properties. Their portfolio includes the former Bucks home of Sir John Gielgud that the couple acquired for a reported £4m in 2008 as a sort of personal Chequers. As far as Beckett, Hencke and Kochan can establish, given the complexity and secrecy that surrounds his affairs, Blair himself is now worth around £60m.

Strategic Engineered Migration as Weapon of War

Is there also some general reason for their frantic desire to flee so far from their homeland? Wealthy relatives who have already settled in the European Union, perhaps? Or stories about welfare benefits on which they will be able to live comfortably? After all, to make such a journey they have to pay handsomely for the services of smugglers. According to some reports, these smugglers take between $4,000 and $10,000 to transport a single refugee from Syria or Libya to Europe. Even if this person has wealthy relatives abroad, receiving money via bank transfer is impossible in war-torn Syria. Organising transportation on credit clearly involves certain guarantees, especially considering that the boats often sink in the Mediterranean.

Who is providing guarantees that encourage hundreds of thousands of people to rush from other continents to Europe and why?

Thousands march against NATO war games in Italy and Spain

Thousands of anti-war protesters in Italy and Spain have taken to streets to express opposition to war games conducted in their respective countries by the US-led NATO military alliance.

The demonstrators carried banners and chanted anti-NATO and anti-US slogans during their protest in the southern Italian city of Naples and Spain’s capital Madrid, insisting that the aim of ongoing military drills – dubbed ‘Trident Juncture 2015’ -- is to prepare for new aggression on the horizon.

Greece: Tspiras is Eliminating Any Trace of His Rivals

So now here we are: the new Tsipras government has just resolved two of its major problems: that of the public debt and the one represented by the ex-president of the Greek Parliament, Zoe Konstantopoulou. How has it managed to bring off this feat? Simple! By erasing from the official site of the Greek Parliament – for all time – everything that could recall Zoe Konstantopoulou and her initiatives during her brief presidency, including the Commission for the Truth of the Public Debt.

Barcelona Threatens to Print Parallel Currency, Madrid Seethes

Over the next six months, Barcelona’s left-wing city council plans to roll out a cash-less local currency that has the potential to become the largest of its kind in the world. The main goal of the project, according to a council spokesperson, is to boost economic opportunities for local businesses and traders.

The idea is for local stores and residents to be able to exchange euros for the new currency at a one-to-one parity, and use it to purchase products and services at a discount or with other kinds of incentives. But it doesn’t end there: the new parallel currency may also be used to pay certain subsidies, taxes and local services such as public transport, reports El País. Municipal workers could also receive part of their salary in the new money.

At one point protesters - no doubt thinking of the 2000 'Bulldozer Revolution' in Serbia and the 2014 Maidan overthrow in Kiev - were set on storming the parliament building. The leader of the opposition Andrija Mandi? was arrested and over 40 people were injured.

'U.S. Presidential Candidate Forum' to take place in Jerusalem, Israel on November 3rd.

A gaggle of right-wing, Jewish and Zionist groups from Israel and America are hosting an international event in Jerusalem on Nov. 3-4th. There is no word on if any actual America presidential candidates actually RSVP'd or have confirmed an appearance. I highly doubt it since none are listed. The event does have a number of other speakers scheduled that day, including several 'Members of the European Parliament.' The group's website states "The co-organizers believe that the Summit event in Jerusalem, Israel, will provide a strategic platform for communicating with leading voices and key stakeholders about foreign policy, US-Israel relations, Europe-Israel relations, the present threats to the West, Israel, and our common civilization based on the foundation of the rule of law - protecting life, liberty and property."

These changing perceptions are the result of the rise of alternative forms of media, which have broken through the mainstream media’s imbalanced and inaccurate portrayal of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

For decades, the one issue that has been the exception to the broadly progressive streak within American Judaism has been Israel. The Jewish state has received unchallenged support by most Jews despite its decades-long occupation of the West Bank and the pursuit of policies toward Palestinians that, were they practiced by any other country, would be overwhelmingly opposed by American Jews.

Merkel’s Faustian embrace of Turkey

If the EU, under Merkel’s direction, accedes to Turkey’s demand for setting up safe zones in northern Syria, then that has ominous implications.

Turkey is pressuring Germany to create “safe zones” inside Syria as a “price” for alleviating the EU’s refugee crisis. It’s a Faustian bargain that could escalate the Syrian conflict, where NATO forces could end up pitted against Russia’s military.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s hot-footing to Istanbul last weekend was capped with a U-turn regarding Turkey’s much sought-after membership of the European Union. In a surprise move, Merkel announcedthat she was now in favor of pushing for Turkey’s accession to the EU, when only a few weeks ago she had reiterated her opposition to its membership.

Corruption is Alive and Well in Greece Only the Cloak Has Changed

In just two days, the Alexis Tsipras government made two shows of semi-authoritarianism that don’t fit with their loud declarations of fairness, social justice, battle against corruption and clientelism.

The arbitrary dismissal of the general secretary for public revenue Katerina Savvaidou put a big hole in the armor of ethics the current Greek government is claiming to have. The chief tax collector was fired because of allegations of extending VAT payment deadlines on television ads. To her defense, Savvaidou said that she did so in order to ease the burden on many businesses that have to pay tax on television advertising. These businesses, she said, employ thousands of people and thousands of families are dependent on them.

Realistically, the Ukraine should have stayed in the realm of similar countries where it had its value and there was a demand for its goods. There is nothing that the Ukraine can offer Europe. It will be stripped of its agricultural products, the ones deemed reasonable, and that’s unfortunately, pretty much the end of it.

Senior State Department Official Urges EU to Adopt Working Definition of Antisemitism

The U.S. is urging the European Union to adopt a working definition of antisemitism, similar to the one used by the State Department, a senior State official said in a conference call with Jerusalem U on Monday.

Defining antisemitism is “an important tool” for combating the rising antisemitic trend in Europe, where — the official, who was not speaking on the record, warned — several smaller Jewish communities, which have existed for 500 to 2,400 years, are on the verge of extinction.

The State Department definition of antisemitism includes certain attitudes toward Israel. In what are commonly referred to as the “3 Ds,” a phrase coined by Jewish Agency Chairman Natan Sharansky, the definition says that demonization, delegitmization and holding Israel to a double standard all constitute antisemitism.

Putin On U.S. Failure Against ISIS: "Double Crossing Is Never Easy. It's Impossible To Combat Terrorism If Some Terrorists Are Used To Overthrow The Regimes That Are Not To One's Liking"

In a speech yesterday, Vladimir Putin presented a rhetorical question asking why the U.S. failed in their fight against ISIS, noting that "double crossing is never easy." "Why is it that the efforts of, say, our American partners and their allies in their struggle against the Islamic State has not produced any tangible results?" Putin asked, explaining "Obviously, this is not about any lack of military equipment or potential. Clearly, the United States has a huge potential, the biggest military potential in the world, only double crossing is never easy. You declare war on terrorists and simultaneously try to use some of them to arrange the figures on the Middle East board in your own interests, as you may think... It is impossible to combat terrorism in general if some terrorists are used as a battering ram to overthrow the regimes that are not to one's liking.

Putin Tells The Truth About Hordes Of Immigrants: "A massive uncontrolled shocking clash of different lifestyles - residents are irritated by the dominance of strangers"

Vladimir Putin gave a speech at the Meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club yesterday, acknowledging the problem of massive immigration. "We should openly speak about this, without trying to polish things up," Putin began. "The residents are irritated by the dominance of strangers, rising crime rate, money spent on refugees from the budgets of their countries." He continued that the question is to how to help the refugees "without infringing on the interests of the residents of the countries where the refugees are moving. Meanwhile, a massive uncontrolled shocking clash of different lifestyles can lead, and already is leading to growing nationalism and intolerance, to the emergence of a permanent conflict in society."

The plan for the end of Europe: the new USSR

By Jon Rappoport

One of the basic principles of elite Globalism is: the end of borders, the end of separate nations.

The European Union was built for this purpose, step by step, out of the ashes of World War 2: a super-bureaucracy and political management system for the whole continent.

But that was not enough. There had to be a way to wipe out separate and sovereign nations at ground level, to irrevocably change the landscape.

It is open borders; floods of immigrants; “replacement populations”; an influx of people who have no intention of accepting the customs and way of life in their new homes...

NATO Begins Dress Rehearsal for Europe-wide War

More than 35,000 troops are participating in NATO’s month-long Trident Juncture war games, along with some 140 warplanes and 60 warships. The militaries of 30 different capitalist governments aligned with the NATO alliance are involved.

Massive NATO drills are taking place in Italy, Spain and Portugal. The drills are designed to prepare the NATO powers for large-scale strategic warfare outside the boundaries of the NATO countries, according to NATO officials.

The main focus of the NATO drills is to prepare for comprehensive strategic warfare spanning broad stretches of the Eurasian landmass, comments from NATO officers have made clear.

“Trident Juncture 2015 will demonstrate NATO’s new increased level of ambition in joint modern warfare and will showcase a capable, forward-leading Alliance,” NATO’s command center said in a statement Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this is about one thing, and one thing only: war with Russia.

As with the US, just because an action would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing NATO could do is, unfortunately, no guarantee that NATO, prodded and poked by the US government, won't do it.

And why war, and why now?!?

The economy is collapsing around our ankles; and rather than the US government admitting that the Federal Reserve's quantitative easing was yet another epic fail by the private central banks which comprise the Fed, this coming, global war is the only thing they can think of to misdirect the anger of the American public at this collapse away from its designers,and toward a trumped-up enemy which is now being utterly vilified by the corporate whorespondents.

And if you want a very real-world demonstration of just how "brilliantly" NATO is working, please take a look at their joint occupation of Afghanistan with the US, 14 years on; the current state of that country tells it all.

How Neocons Destabilized Europe

Exclusive: The neocon prescription of endless “regime change” is spreading chaos across the Middle East and now into Europe, yet the neocons still control the mainstream U.S. narrative and thus have diagnosed the problem as not enough “regime change,” as Robert Parry reports.

The refugee chaos that is now pushing deep into Europe – dramatized by gut-wrenching photos of Syrian toddler Aylan Kurdi whose body washed up on a beach in Turkey – started with the cavalier ambitions of American neocons and their liberal-interventionist sidekicks who planned to remake the Middle East and other parts of the world through “regime change.”

Instead of the promised wonders of “democracy promotion” and “human rights,” what these “anti-realists” have accomplished is to spread death, destruction and destabilization across the Middle East and parts of Africa and now into Ukraine and the heart of Europe. Yet, since these neocon forces still control the Official Narrative, their explanations get top billing – such as that there hasn’t been enough “regime change.”

Europe Slowly Turns Conservative as Anti-Immigrant Party Wins Swiss Election

Once the liberal bastion of the world, it appears that Europe’s political discourse is slowly shifting to the right. As Middle-Eastern refugees continue to flood into the continent, more Europeans are beginning to view the migrants as a threat to their culture, and are increasingly turning to nationalist movements for solutions.

This is especially true for Switzerland, where the anti-immigration Swiss People’s Party, won the largest share of seats in the national parliamentary election over the weekend. The SVP exceeded expectations by winning 29.5% of the vote, which added 11 seats for the party. They now hold 65 of the parliament’s 200 seats, which is the most any party has held in nearly a century. The Liberal Party (which contrary to its name, is actually a center-right pro-business party) managed to gain 3 more seats.

NATO Launches Massive Exercise to Prep for War With ‘Not Russia’

NATO today launched its biggest single military exercise in more than 13 years, involving some 36,000 troops in the Mediterranean Sea, simulating a war spanning from Sicily to Spain and Portugal against a major invading European superpower, who officials are insisting is definitely totally not Russia.

The exercise is planned to last through November 6 and will focus on support a “Spearhead Force” that NATO intends to install along the Russian border, nominally to fend off a Russian invasion of Eastern Europe. The predictions of a Russian invasion have been growing out of NATO for a couple of years, and have justified significant increases in spending and military deployments into otherwise calm nations in the east.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question in this article which is never asked, but SHOULD be, is why in the world would Putin want to attack Eastern Europe at this time?!?

And the short answer is, he wouldn't.

He's got his hands full in Syria, and is working like a demon to get the Russian economy back on track, in spite of US and (crumbling) European sanctions.

Russians and Europeans understand what it is like to have a war on your front lawn, and have had quite enough of that, thank you very much.

The folks doing this horrific warmongering are primarily the American political leadership, and its military.

Against the Clock: Pentagon Pushing Ahead With Nuclear Buildup in Europe

While Russia is eradicating the terrorist threat in the Middle East, the US and NATO are busy with modernizing their European nuclear arms aimed at some unknown menace and pressuring the EU, particularly Belgium, into spending more on US weaponry, founder of Agora Erasmus movement Karel Vereycken told Sputnik.

It is naïve to believe that the Obama administration, lambasted by both right and left-wing parties in the US for its inconsistent policy in the Middle East, is perplexed or distraught. Undoubtedly, it has a well-thought-out foreign strategy and Europe is one of its targets.
In his earlier interviews to Sputnik, Karel Vereycken, journalist, founder of the Belgian political organization Agora Erasmus and editor-at-large of the French newspaper Nouvelle Solidarité, called attention to the fact that the Pentagon and NATO are pushing ahead with the project of re-nuclearization of Europe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just because pushing the renuclearization of Europe is one of the most ham-fistedly, pigheadedly stupid things the US government could do right now is, unfortunately, becoming a nightmare reality for Europe.

Russia is absolutely no threat to the US, unless the US government creates a massive provocation against it, which the US government seems hell-bent on doing with these actions.

Russia's military campaign in Syria has demonstrated that it has some really world-class hardware and software, to which the US military has no real answer at this point.

And, unlike the US, in Russia, there is a tacit agreement agreement between weapons makers and the Russian government that when equipment is deployed in real-world battle conditions, that equipment is deployed fully functional.

"We will find the votes necessary to register our initiative to send the cabinet to resignation. We will spare no effort to have these authorities stepped down," he told TASS. The initiative has already been supported by the leader of the Party of Communists and former President, Vladimir Voronin, who has 19 seats in the parliament. "We see what is going on the country. Strelet is not doing what he is supposed to but is protecting his business run jointly with the arrested former Prime Minister [Vlad] Filat. That is why we are ready to vote in favour of sending this government to resignation," he said.

NATO BLIND: Top Secret Russian Air Defence System Deployed in Syria

You are only as good as those you fight. The US military is great for gunning down innocent men,women and children all over the planet for their corporate and neocon masters.
They are absolutely no good for defending the USA from attack and are at this moment training to attack the American people. And they have now been caught not only giving aid and comfort to America's enemies,they the Pentagram creates Americas enemies out of whole cloth! Shameful!

Thierry Meyssan, a French journalist who has been based in Damascus for some years now, is reporting that Russia has deployed its most advanced, top secret air defence system in Syria, which has essentially “left NATO blind.”

While the West has been completely embarrassed by Russia’s swift and effective operation in Syria, it has now been utterly outclassed; so greatly that, as we shall hear below, even NATO Commanders are ‘worried’.

ISIS Fighters Could Gain LEGAL Entry Into EU, Thanks to Europe’s New Schengen Visa Deal for Turkey

Turkey is set to pick up a few big sweeteners from Brussels if ‘tries’ to stop refugee flow into Europe – even though it’s nearly impossible for Ankara to actually come good on its lofty promise to ‘contain’ the large refugee flow through Turkey into the European promise land.

It’s true that Turkey has accommodated roughly 2 million Syrian refugees, and is said to have spent over nearly $8 billion on the crisis thus far.

What they are not telling us however, is that Turkey has been the primary facilitator of the Syrian conflict, mainly by hosting terrorist and ‘rebel’ training and equipping for tens of thousands of fighters since 2011, as well as providing a continuous safe haven for terrorist fighters – freely coming and going over its southern border with Syria.

A Very Heavy Agenda Part 1 : A Catalyzing Event [Trailer] (Neocons exposed)

Post-9/11, the War on Terror had outlived its usefulness.
The minds behind the think tanks that drive America’s interventionist foreign policy decided that the U.S. needed a new enemy, so they chose an old one -- Russia.

Part 1: A Catalyzing Event 1hr 25mins

Cheney, Wolfowitz and Rumsfeld were ubiquitous in the news media as they took every available opportunity to market to America an aggressive preemptive war policy. But from where did their ideas originate? The answer is a tightly knit and eminently well placed group of neoconservative thought leaders, chief among them Bill Kristol and Robert Kagan. Part 1 begins in the panicked weeks after 9/11, as Kagan et al. seized upon the hysteria surrounding the anthrax letter attacks to further shape America’s perception of reality, planting the seeds for endless future military engagements. George W. Bush may have been understandably perceived as an idiot, but watching these wonks and academics drive the ideological engine for his administration belies a much more sophisticated strategy at play.

Why US fears Putin success in Syria

Russia is conducting operations that are lawful under international law with the full consent of the Syrian government – unlike the US-led coalition which is bombing the country illegally.

BEX ALERT - Christians living in Sweden have been told to 'convert or die' in chilling messages across Gothenburg – a hotbed of ISIS recruitment

Christians living in Sweden have been warned to 'convert to Islam or die' in a string of threatening messages linked to the Islamic State.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These "ISIS in Europe" are in fact propaganda operatives, selling the illusion of an imminent domestic threat from ISIS, which we know now is a made-up enemy by the United States (think "Emmanuel Goldstein" from George Orwell's "1984") to trick the people into accepting more war and dictatorship.

Poland Admits Its $1 Billion LNG Terminal Unlikely to See Much Use

Mr. Jakub Jaworowski, Secretary of State, Chancellery of the Prime Minister, Poland, likened his country's new LNG facility to a “shotgun on the wall.” Calling it a game changer, both for Poland and the region, that shotgun is there on the wall “just in case.” He explained, “So it greatly enhances our negotiating power with our suppliers, because we can always say 'well, maybe we can buy some gas from other destinations.'” A real gas market, he added, does not exist if the infrastructure is not in place. He said that now it is almost impossible to move LNG from Spain to Poland. “Out of Spain's 230 bcm of LNG regasification capacity, more than one-fourth is in Spain. But it doesn't matter, because there is no pipeline connection between Spain and Poland, so in case of any crisis we cannot move any gas from Spain to Poland,” said Mr. Jaworowski, who added that this had encouraged Poland to invest in infrastructure in the last 7 years.

EU Taxpayers and World Bank Stuck With Ukraine's Gas Bill

Russia is taking a tougher stance towards Ukraine: Ukraine’s potential failure to fulfill its loan obligations due in December would be classified as payment default. National bankruptcy would be the consequence. Recently the World Bank and EIB granted a credit guarantee to Ukraine: this liquidity enables Ukraine to fulfill its obligations towards Gazprom and secures gas supplies not a moment too soon before winter comes. Russia’s president Putin intends to involve the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in this dispute over debts. The IMF should take the role of a lender of $3 billion to Ukraine thus enabling the neighboring state to redeem a loan with the same value due in December, Putin stated last Tuesday in Moscow. Any shortfalls concerning Ukraine’s financial obligations within the terms and conditions would be graded as payment default, Russia’s finance minister Anton Siluanow announced.

EU Directly Funds Israeli Military Companies and Institutions

Aside from maintaining this siege and engaging in direct military attacks on Gaza, the Israeli army’s primary ongoing task is to enforce the Occupation of the Palestinian land and people.

1,000 Estonians Protest Against the EU’s Foreign Invasion

Estonia is a country we do not often hear about in the West. It is a small country with around 1.25 million people, but it has a rich history, culture, and genetic inheritance, which need to be preserved.

As part of the European Union, Estonia is being subjected to all sorts of Cultural Marxism, and Estonians are finding themselves sliding down a very slippery slope. For example, on October 9th Estonia’s parliament legalized homosexual marriage, following the West’s model for decline. Shortly before this, the EU pushed to relocate 160,000 illegal invaders from the Middle East and North Africa into Estonia, Sweden, Luxembourg, and other EU countries.

Euro drops on hopes of more QE after ECB admits it is missing its inflation target

The European Central Bank is missing its inflation target and will have to ramp up stimulus measures, according to the chief of Austria's central bank.

World’s First Cashless Nation is On Track in Sweden

By Nicholas West

The full emergence of a cashless society has been a plan long in the making and taking place on many fronts. We are currently seeing an array of new tech that is intended to make cash seem like an antiquated, clumsy way to transact business. Why not pay via identity tech such as vein scanners, facial recognition, voiceprints, iris scans – even tears? Purchases will just be so much safer and more convenient with your new Zwipe biometric credit card.

Simultaneously, we are witnessing legislation and internal banking policies that make it – or will make it – virtually impossible to use cash unless you want to be investigated for money laundering or ties to terrorism. We have begun to hear an increasing chorus from central banks, lackey politicians and of course the United States IRS who are openly declaring a war on cash. So what will the new economic world look like?...
