Bernard Ingham: One foot in the grave if Britain doesn’t vote to leave EU

I cannot believe that David Cameron is so stupid as to bring politics into further disrepute – after the 1975 referendum kidology – by extolling the virtues of EU membership before he has anything approaching a deal and calling on the might of British industry to say why we should stay in rather than come out.

EU undemocratic & infested with fraudsters – ex-Thatcher aide

The European Union is futile, corrupt and saturated with fraud, Margaret Thatcher’s former press secretary has said.

Writing in the Yorkshire Post, Sir Bernard Ingham, Thatcher’s longtime trusted press secretary, asked why Britain should cast £12 billion a year down an assorted array of “criminal drains.”

New Conservative Polish Govt May Be in 'Maidan' Crosshairs

The whole thing could, of course, be received with an ironic smile – on the face of it, it is looking like the ousted political, business and media establishment are getting out of their luxury cars and going into the streets to call for a repeat of Maidan. Doing this, of course, under the alleged banner of ‘restoring democracy’, can be read as an attempt to bring themselves back into power. These calls for the creation of Maidan in Poland and EU intervention in order to ‘restore democracy’ are sown on very fertile ground when it comes to the EU and Germany.

THE PENTAGON DECLARED THAT RUSSIA IS THE MAIN THREAT IN EUROPE

The United States European Command (EUCOM) said that deterring Russia was its top priority in Europe. This was stated in the new strategy, published on the EUCOM website. The document also says that Russia challenges the US's allies and partners around the world, which is a global problem.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You people in Europe better slap Washington DC up side of the head and tell them to take their war somewhere else.

Danish 17-year-old girl who used a pepper spray to fight off a rapist near migrant asylum centre is told SHE will be prosecuted for carrying the weapon

A Danish teenager who was sexually assaulted near a migrant asylum centre has been told she will be prosecuted after using pepper spray to fend off her attacker. The 17-year-old told police she was targeted in the coastal town of Sonderborg by an English-speaking man, who knocked her to the ground and tried to undress her. But she managed to prevent the man from attacking her further by spraying the substance at him. However, as it is illegal to use pepper spray, the teenage girl is set to face charges. It is likely she will face a 500 Krone (£50) fine. Local police spokesman Knud Kirsten told TV Syd: 'It is illegal to possess and use pepper spray, so she will likely to be charged for that.'

ISIS targeting Europe for ‘large-scale Mumbai-style attacks’, EU police chief warns

Fortress Europe: Brussels shuts borders and calls for refugee camp for 300,000 to be built in Greece in last-ditch bid to stop a flood of migrants 

Belgium has called for vast refugee camps holding up to 300,000 refugees to be built in Greece in a desperate attempt to stem the flow of migrants from Syria and other nations outside Europe.

At an emergency summit of European leaders yesterday, Belgian migration minister Theo Francken raised the spectre of setting up 'closed facilities' in Greece to be operated by the EU.

Portugal: Dying country of no future and many pensioners elects new president

The presidential elections in Portugal showed that the population does not believe the parties it represents. The sleepy country of pensioners is dying. This is not a protest electorate - these people need their cup of coffee, their gardens and terraces. Where are new Portuguese politicians? Greece has tried that, and Iceland even managed to leave the crisis behind. Why can't Portugal do the same?

Giulietto Chiesa: MEPs may be deprived of their viewpoint

Giulietto Chiesa, an Italian journalist and former member of the European Parliament: 'I do not know if it is real, but it is clearly an attempt to impeach the Members of the EU and other national parliaments of their freedom in examining the situation which is going in Ukraine and another countries. I was a member of the European Parliament, and I was expelled by the Estonian state, because they believed that I represented a threat to their national sovereignty and security. Well, it is the same thing. When I was an MP, I went, for instance, to South Ossetia and Georgia without any authorization, because I believed that I was a representative of the European people and I have the right to study the situation around Europe. The PACE wants to deprive the deputies of a possibility to have their own point of view. Ant that is very serious because in Europe the press is very seriously censored. This declaration of a Ukrainian deputy is a clear intimidation.

Europe to punish MPs for traveling to Crimea and Donbass

Ukrainian MP Georgy Logvinsky stated that the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe intends to introduce penalties for European parliamentarians for their trips to the Crimea and the Donbass. "The PACE has adopted a resolution tha European parliamentarians, regardless of their status, will be responsible for visiting Crimea ... bypassing Ukrainian laws ... I am grateful to all members of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, who supported the Ukraine, supported our delegation and voted for our amendment"... PACE representatives had visited the Crimea on the initiative from Swiss MP from the Party of Social Democrats, Andreas Gross, who earlier criticized anti-Russian policies of the West. Russia is not willing to pay its annual fee to the PACE as the organization had deprived Russia of the right to vote. "The PACE has not introduced and can not introduce any penalties for those European MPs who visit the Crimea or the Donbass.

Outrage in Denmark as 17yo girl faces fine for using pepper spray against sex attacker

A Danish teenager who said she was sexually assaulted now faces a fine for using pepper spray against her attacker. The man who pulled her to the ground and tried to undress her fled the scene without any charges.
The incident took place in the center of the small town of Sonderborg in southern Denmark at about 10 p.m. local time Wednesday. She told police that an English-speaking man knocked her to the ground, tried to unbutton her pants and undress her.

However, she was apparently able to protect herself as she pulled out pepper spray and used it against the man, who escaped the scene and hasn’t been charged.

Police say that the girl may face a fine.

“It is illegal to possess and use pepper spray, so she will likely be charged for that,” local police spokesman Knud Kirsten said, as cited by TV Syd.

Greece Is First EU Country Out Of The Gate To Buy Iranian Oil

***
The country’s biggest oil refiner, Hellenic Petroleum (HELPE), will resume purchases of crude from the National Iranian Oil Co. (NIOC). The deal was announced after a meeting Friday between Amir Hossein Zamaninia, Iran’s deputy oil minister for international affairs, and Greece’s deputy oil minister, Panos Skourletis, in Athens.

Deliveries will begin immediately under a “long-term agreement,” HELPE said in a statement, though it didn’t say how long that term would be. The refiner was one of Iran’s significant buyers of crude before the sanctions regime began in 2011, importing about 20 percent of its oil needs from the Islamic Republic. It owns three of Greece’s four oil refineries.

THE TRUTH ABOUT HITLER'S 1939 PACT WITH STALIN

Of the many, and we do mean many, popular misconceptions about the grand history-altering event known as World War II surrounds the true nature of the German-Soviet Non-Aggression Pact -- also known as the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact after the two foreign ministers who negotiated and then finalized the agreement in late August of 1939. As the stupid story goes, this was the moment when Hitler and Stalin made the deal to carve up Poland and - in a 'secret protocol' - the rest of eastern Europe..

Montenegro Rebels Against NATO and Djukanovic

Since the autumn of 2015, Montenegro has been restless. The mass protests outside the government building in Podgorica have not subsided. The situation in the country is heating up with each passing day... Over the past 24 hours in Podgorica, anti-government demonstrations have been chanting the slogans: "Montenegro against NATO and European integration", "Traitor Milo Djukanovic, need to overthrow the government," "We love Russia and Putin", "We — the nightmare of Euroregio Djukanovic", reports News Front. In addition, activists insist that Montenegro should change the course towards Russia and advocate a military and economic union with Russia. It is noteworthy that when they began to broadcast the speech of the Prime Minister before the rest of the government, the crowd heard his voice and started to rebel even more. While Djukanovic spoke at the meeting, activists chanted "Milo - thief!".

New Moldovan government asks IMF, Romania for financial assistance amid political crisis

Moldova’s new government has addressed the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and Romania with a request to provide financial assistance to overcome hard economic situation, Economy Minister Octavian Calmic told reporters on Tuesday. Filip is currently holding negotiations with his Romanian counterpart Dacian Ciolos on the conditions of receiving the first tranche of the 150-million-euro loan promised by Romania. "The ministry will also work on lifting barriers in trade with Russia and boosting exports of domestically produced goods to this country," Calmic noted. He noted that Moldovan transport companies now experience problems in transit of Russian goods via Ukrainian territory due to Kiev’s ban on importing goods from Russia. "Thanks to diplomatic efforts, this problem has been temporarily settled. However, we need to look for a long-term solution by using a CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) platform," the minister stressed.

CITIGROUP, DAVOS WORRY ABOUT POPULAR BACKLASH TO NEOLIBERAL ORDER

From January 20-23, the global elite met in Davos, Switzerland for the annual World Economic Forum. The themes this year were the dangers of inequality and terrorism to the current world order, an order those present have benefited the most from and have charged themselves with maintaining. The founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab, framed the issues as a problem of managing a so-called “Fourth Industrial Revolution” that was exacerbating inequality and allowing terrorists to use digital communication systems to coordinate attacks. The Fourth Industrial Revolution, as defined by Schwab, is “characterized by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres.”

Central banks also serve financial markets through the implementation of bailout programs designed to save banks and financial institutions when markets fail, as well as through the management of monetary policy with its primary objectives of achieving ‘price stability’ (low and stable inflation), which generally favours creditors at the expense of debtors. The prevailing orthodoxy of central bankers is closely aligned with the interests and objectives of private financial institutions, and Governors Carstens and Rajan are no exceptions.

UKIP leader Farage launches cross-party Brexit platform

“We are not against Europe, we love Europe,” Farage said addressing 2,000 people who gathered in Kettering, Northamptonshire, for the event.

“What we are against is the idea of all of our laws being administered by those in Brussels,” he added as cited by The Northamptonshire Telegraph.

The main argument in favor a British exit from the EU is the EU migration policy of open doors, the UKIP leader noted.

“The key issue that I believe will win us this referendum is the fact that as a member of this union we now have an open door to nearly half a billion people, any of whom can come in to our country,” Farage said urging for UK residents “to take back control of our borders” in the face of the migrant influx.

Why do JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs want desperately to keep the UK in the European Union?

JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs want Britain to stay within the European Union and they are spending money to make sure the UK stays. Surprise. It is odd (perhaps not so odd) that so much of the banking and political establishment in British Europe (forgive me Britons, I was taught that one should never call a Brit a “European” but I’m making a point) is so vehemently pro-European Union. The lockstep (goosestep?) push by some to further integrate with Brussels, to give up even more sovereignty, to further reduce Britain’s stature in the world is striking.

America's chemical-soaked, hormone-filled meats impede trade deal with Europe

Earlier this year, many people in the United States were angered over the fact that the USDA was on board with having US chickens sent to China for processing, then shipped back to the States for human consumption. Questionable food practices in China, as well as the illogical nature of such an elaborate import/export process, rendered Americans' stomachs -- and finances -- uneasy.(1)

How interesting it is then, that the United States, which fears China's iffy food security, is now entertaining signing a bill which is providing Europe with those same fears. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), if signed and passed, is poised to create a global megamarket of 800 million consumers spanning from Hawaii to Greece and Alaska to Finland.(2)

Are the US Elites Attempting to Destroy Europe by Triggering A Flood of Immigrants and Refugees?

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.

At Davos, IMF to urge EU nations to open job markets to refugees

The tide of Middle East refugees should boost European economic growth over the short term, but their longer-term impact will depend on efforts to integrate them, the IMF said Wednesday.

In a new study to be presented at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this week, the International Monetary Fund said that governments making strong efforts to bring refugees into the workforce can lessen the chance that they will become a burden on the state budget.

"Quick labor market integration can unlock the potential economic benefits of the refugee inflow," said the IMF study, "The Refugee Surge in Europe: Economic Challenges."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Illegal immigrant labor always cuts down the cost of doing business, which corporations always love.

But what about those Europeans who are displaced from the jobs they had, by doing this?!? Where are they going to go, geopolitically?!?

My guess would be, when these Europeans become displaced by illegal immigrant labor,the anger at the governments which betrayed them will cause the mood across Europe to swing hard right, and we will see a floodgate of ultranationalist sentiment the world hasn't seen for quite some time.

Think Germany in the 1930s.

Those politicians, like Angela Merkel, who have been advocating the acceptance of all alleged political refugees will find herself gone from German, European, and international politics so quickly that she will barely have time to catch her breath.

But the one thing no one in Davos is advocating is for the United States to stop its endless military interventions in the Middle East which are generating this flood of refugees which has overrun Europe!

How the 1% do love their wars!!

From the Polish media we learn that German authorities ordered the destruction of CCTV evidence of the Cologne attacks.

We know that the Polish media cannot be trusted because Law and Justice (PiS) has been busy stacking the state media overseeing with its own cronies. To be sure the previous pro-EU leftist government had done the exact same, but that is okay because it was done in pursuit of the goals of social justice. As exemplified by, say, the German and Swedish media, which have been ordered at the highest levels to avoid reporting on minor political issues, such as the mass rape of their own women by refugees. What refugees? What rape? What Turkish sponsorship of ISIS? Hey, look over there – isn’t Julian Assange a chauvinist pig for not wearing a condom during consensual sex?

Every false flag in the making is detected ahead of time by somebody’s intelligence services

Every false flag in the making is detected ahead of time by somebody’s intelligence services—usually more than one country—because spying today is so effective and so universal. Officials in possession of this secret information often pass it on to the country that’s targeted, in the sincere belief that a heads-up will be appreciated.

But often the information isn’t welcomed—-because the fix is already in. Treasonous assets within the targeted country’s chain of command, who are prepared for the possibility of a leak, take measures to block the information from reaching those who might act on it in a meaningful way.

Kremlin urges all sides in Moldova to refrain from violence, comply with law

Moldovan protesters set to resume rallies: The leaders of the Party of Socialists and the Our Party have criticized the latest move by Moldovan President Nicolae Timofti to approve the new cabinet of Pavel Filip overnight. "This is an illegal government and an illegal parliamentary majority. The fact that the cabinet has taken the oath secretly and the president has signed a respective decree changes nothing," Dodon said. http://tass.ru/en/world/851102
On Wednesday, riots occurred outside the parliament in Moldova after the new government was approved. Thousands of opposition supporters stormed the building saying the cabinet was illegal.

same silliness different day

snip: And that once again feeds the warmongering hordes, for which that «good old-fashioned world war» is the easiest ticket out. Cancel all the old debt; issue loads of new debt; turn ploughshares and iPhones into cannons. And after a little thermonuclear exchange, welcome to full employment and a new (waste)land of opportunity.

Russia to respond to NATO Black Sea force by deploying new weapons - report

The Russian Army and Navy will deploy additional forces and modern weapons to its southwest in reply to NATO’s plans to boost its presence in the Black Sea region, a Russian newspaper reported quoting Defense Ministry sources.

The military is planning to test the fresh forces, infrastructure and weapons deployed to the regions bordering the Black Sea in the headquarters exercise Caucasus-2016, scheduled for September, the sources told Novaya Gazeta daily. The exercise will include joint use of various forces in the Caucasus Mountains and on the Black Sea, they added.

The plans to reinforce Russia’s southwestern borders must be tied with NATO’s plans to boost its military presence in the region, as well as with its constant effort aimed at increasing the combat abilities of the Ukrainian Army, the newspaper suggested after receiving the sources’ information.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem for NATO is that when Russia military weapons builders have delivered their equipment, that equipment works precisely as advertised if not better.

With Western made military equipment, many times the products are very much behind delivery schedule, way over budget, and not performing at all to spec, when field tested.

The number of refugees coming to Europe must be vastly reduced in the coming weeks, Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte said on Wednesday (20 January), as he outlined the priorities for the Dutch presidency of the EU for the next six months.

“We are running out of time. We need a sharp reduction in the coming six to eight weeks,” Rutte warned.

He told MEPs that tackling the migration crisis would be top of his agenda, and urged states to implement agreements which have already been made.
