Spain Defense Minister Warns Army May Intervene Unless "Catalonia Obeys The Rules"

With Spain's Catalan region on the verge of electing pro-independence parties and seeking autonomy from central rule, the government (clearly worried) has ramped up the rhetoric on what consequences lie ahead. In a rather stunning outburst for a supposed democracy, CNA reports, the Spanish Defence Minister, Pedro Morenés, assured that the army won’t act in Catalonia as long as "everybody fulfills their duty." The Catalan minister for the presidency exclaimed Morenes statement was "out of this world," and could only be made by "someone who is afraid of democracy." The army will "enforce the Constitution," Morenes concludes, unless "members strictly obey the rules." As one pro-independence minister opined, "threatening and trying to intimidate means that you are only left with stupidity."

Hungarian journalist fired after kicking, tripping up refugees on video

A journalist for Hungary’s N1TV channel associated with the far-right Jobbik party has been fired after her colleagues filmed her kicking and tripping up migrants fleeing from the police.

Camerawoman Petra László was filming at a migrants’ center near the village of Roszke on the Hungarian-Serbian border when hundreds of migrants broke through a police cordon in a field.

There is much being written about the refugee crisis in Europe at the moment but none of what I have read explains why the problem is occurring and what will need to be done for the problem to be addressed. Refugees are just one symptom of a deeper crisis. Moreover, like other symptoms of this deeper crisis, the global elite is happy to use this symptom to keep us utterly preoccupied; after all, the immediacy of the refugee problem is all too demanding of our attention and our compassion.

The phoney « refugee crisis »

While the European media arouse emotion by showing photographs of a drowned child and reports of crowds of refugees crossing the Balkans on foot, Thierry Meyssan demonstrates that these images have been fabricated. It’s certain that they serve the purposes of the head of the Federation of German Industries, Ulrich Grillo, and also NATO. But they do not show the phenomenon in its totality, which leads the Europeans to offer inadapted responses.

Behind The Euro Immigration Crisis; Who Is Responsible And Why

By Brandon Turbeville

As the migrant crisis in Europe grows ever more precarious, violence between security personnel and immigrants reaches a new level and tension between citizens and non-citizens inches higher and higher, any informed observer should be asking themselves the question – “What is the ultimate goal here?”

The immigration crisis has not formed organically nor has it formed in a vacuum...

Around 25,000 migrants are currently camped out on the island with hundreds more arriving daily, leading to frequent violent clashes and rioting despite their claim to be fleeing violence.

In Major Escalation, Washington Demands Greece Blocks Its Airspace For Russian Flights To Syria

Moments ago, following ever louder hints - if still unconfirmed by the Kremlin - that Russian forces are either en route to Syria or already there (Russian soldier's VK post stating troops are in Syria, intercepted communication from a Russian An-124 military cargo plane en route to Latakia, Russian Roll-on/roll-off ship allegedly carrying military equipment to Syria), the US made a dramatic diplomatic escalation ahead of what is now assured to be the second major showdown between the US and Russia in Syria, over a Qatari gas pipeline no less, when according to Reuters, it asked Greece to deny Russia the use of its airspace for supply flights to Syria, a Greek official said on Monday, after Washington told Moscow it was deeply concerned by reports of a Russian military build up in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US is in a real corner of their own making. They send weapons and supplies to Al Qaeda and ISIS in Syria, then use the presence of Al Qaeda and ISIS as an excuse to bomb Syria, claiming they are targeting the eeeeeevil Al Qaeda and ISIS. So Russia ways, "We'll help" meaning Russia will help the Syrian government go after Al Qaeda and ISIS. The US cannot admit that Al Qaeda and ISIS are proxy armies working for the US, and since Syria's legitimate government wants Russia's help, the US has to resort to trying to blockade Russia behind Greece, Bulgaria, and so forth. All f this is a violation of international laws regarding freedom of the seas and skies.

The border with Austria: Pole shocking relationship with the coach assaulted by immigrants

“Half an hour ago on the border between Italy and Austria i saw a huge crowd of immigrants. With all solidarity to people in difficult circumstances I have to say that what I saw arouses horror.This huge mass of people – sorry – but it’s an absolute wilderness … Vulgar, throwing bottles, shouting “We want Germany”. So what, Germany is now a paradise?

I saw an elderly Italian woman in a car that was surrounded by the immigrants. They pulled her by the hair out of the car and wanted to use it to go to Germany. They tried to topple the bus i was in. They threw feces at us, banging on the door for the driver to open it, spat on the glass. My question is- for what purpose? How do they want to assimilate in Germany? For a moment, i felt like in a warzone. I really feel sorry for these people, but if they would reach Poland – I do not think they would receive any understanding from us.

Fox News Doesn’t Get it, Blames Russia for Refugee Crisis in EU

DC has lost it....totally!

There is one thing Fox News has learned to do well over the years — that's to blame Russia for all the bad stuff that happens in the world. The Syrian war breaks out — quick to blame the Russians, the US government organized a coup in Ukraine — of course the Russians were behind it, the channel screams. What's next, Fox News? Perhaps the Russians also started the Ebola virus or were behind the extinction of the dinosaurs?

This time, it was no different after Fox News decided to tackle the refugee crisis in Europe. KT McFarland, a Fox News National Security Analyst invited to talk on the issue, was quick to blame… that's right, none other than Russian President Vladimir Putin for creating the refugee crisis in Europe.

Through both your actions and your deliberate silence, you have helped to engineer the mutual tragedy of this refugee migration - a disaster now being compounded by phony refugees piggybacking along with the real refugees.

U.S. Drops Bombs; EU Gets Refugees & Blame. This is insane

Starting in 2011 in Libya, the United States dropped bombs on Libya in order to replace its pro-Russian dictator, Muammar Gaddafi. The EU is now tearing itself apart with guilt-feelings at European nations’ responses to the refugee-crisis that was caused by this American bombing-campaign in Libya, and then by the one in Syria. Europe has also received refugees from the American-sponsored bombing-campaign in eastern Ukraine (the bombing-campaign that the 2014 American-installed anti-Russian Ukrainian government calls an ‘Anti-Terrorist Operation,’ or ‘ATO,’ which labels the residents in that pro-Russian area — where the residents reject the February 2014 U.S. coup — as ‘Terrorists’ and thus as being suitable to be bombed, and even firebombed).

Russia and the United States has so far not formally declared on the occasion of this announcement, but the response is certainly expected.
The statement said that the request is under consideration, Reuters reported.

Scotland and Germany use "opt-out" clause to ban GMO agriculture

Operating under a recently passed law by the European Union that allows individual member countries to "opt out" of GMO cultivation, Scotland and Germany announced their decision to forbid the planting of Monsanto's GM corn, also known as MON810. (Republished from

Germany's Agriculture Minister Christian Schmidt reported the move in August, following a similar action taken by the Scottish Government which reported it made the decision in order to "protect Scotland's clean, green status," according to reports.

Carlo Leifert, Professor of Ecological Agriculture at Newcastle University, supports Scotland's ban, saying that "there are likely to be significant commercial benefits from Scotland being clearly recognised as a GM-free region."

Germany seems to agree, also basing their ban at least in part due to the environmental impacts caused by GM agriculture.

Refugee stance an example of policy by polling

As the Prime Minister signals that he might re-consider his unwillingness to help with the refugee crisis, students of New Zealand politics will have recognised a familiar syndrome.

First, a proposal is roundly rejected; then the language softens; the merits of the proposal are partially acknowledged and, finally, it is accepted.

Most politicians with aspirations to remain at or near the top will have learnt that it is not a good idea to stray too far from where public opinion is thought to rest. Some political leaders have perfected the technique of deciding policy on the basis of what the voters think; Bill Clinton, with his "triangulation", even went so far as to give that process a name.

Alexis Tsipras faces shock election defeat as voters on course to punish Syriza at the ballot box

Greek voters are set to punish the government of prime minister Alexis Tsipras after polls show his hard-Left Syriza party is on course for a shock defeat in a general election later this month.

Mr Tsipras, who called a snap vote on August 20, has seen his party’s comfortable 15 point lead evaporate in just six weeks, putting the centre-right New Democracy in pole position to lead Greece's fifth government in just four years.

The ascendant conservatives - who support the bail-out and will keep the country in the euro at all costs - edged ahead of Syriza for the first time since May 2014 in two polls this week.

Dogs of Western resentment bark as Chinese WWII parade passes

The importance for China of this coming Thursday’s parade celebrating the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII in the Asia-Pacific cannot be overstated enough.

The parade rolling past Tiananmen Square officially celebrates the Chinese People’s War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression. This is an extremely serious – and sensitive – business for 1.4 billion Chinese and the Chinese diaspora all across the world.

And once again, the West – displaying trademark cultural/historical insensitivity – has blown it. Beijing is carefully scrutinizing the diplomatic ramifications of shows and no-shows. Symbolically, absences speak volumes.

President Vladimir Putin will be in Beijing, as well as leaders of the four Central Asian ‘stans’ that are part of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

Sanctioned Terrorism

…we must fight sanctioned terrorism today.

What is left unmentioned and unrecognized in our collective psyche is the kind of terrorism that has been deliberately obfuscated: sanctioned terrorism or terrorism with a license – sanctions.

Shamelessly, even after sanctioned terrorism took the life of one million Iraqis, the UNSC licensed terrorism against Iran – sanctions, without any remorse for the lost lives of 1 million Iraqi victims of sanctioned terrorism and untold numbers or other victims across the globe.

The overall failure to identify and deliberately obfuscate this act of terrorism has enabled this premeditated act of terrorism to continue with impunity.The success of this deception is owed to controlling the narrative with complicity from the media.This has been so effective that even the victims of sanctioned terrorism fail to grasp that they are being subjected to terrorism.

In his keynote speech, the president also referred to Takfiri groups, including Daesh, Taliban and Boko Haram, as other sources of terrorism in the region.

Blowback on a NATO beach – Pepe Escobar

We’ve had it coming from the beginning.

And when it came, virtually the whole planet reacted with stunned silence. Sometimes it takes just a photograph to put a noxiously complex version of hell in perspective.

We’ve had it coming when the “we’re the new OPEC” Bush administration invaded, occupied and destroyed Iraq – creating the set-up for the establishment of Al-Qaeda in Iraq.

We’ve had it coming when the Petraeus surge bribed Sunnis to half-heartedly fight Al-Qaeda in Iraq – which then took its time to reorganize in the heart of the desert, change its name to Islamic State and plot a comeback.

We’ve had it coming when NATO, enthusiastically “led” by London and Paris, and allied with hardcore Salafi-jihadis, set out to duly “liberate” Libya into a failed state run by militias.

Ban EU from campaigning in referendum, 100 Tories to warn

More than 100 Tory MPs could tomorrow back plans to formally bar the European Union from campaigning during the referendum on Britain's membership.

They said it would be an "outrage" if the EU is able to use British taxpayers money to help sway the result while there is a general ban on public spending during the campaign.

82 new US-trained Syrians prepare for fighting

Coalition is rotten at its core! Time to change the players and game itself to create a shot at success.

A US military source has revealed in private conversation that the US-led Coalition formed to target the Islamic State (IS) and other terrorist groups is currently training 82 new recruits for its Syria operations. These include 12 new fighters in Jordan and 70 in Turkey.

A spokeswoman for the US military’s Central Command (CENTCOM), Major Genieve David, would not confirm these numbers. “We are not giving out numbers due to operational security concerns,” she said via phone.

But Turkey’s Foreign Minister Minister Mevlut Çavu?o?lu’s comment a few days ago that “in the second group we have around 100 (fighters)” suggests that the source’s numbers are likely to be accurate.

It is uncertain, anyway, if all 82 trainees will graduate from the Coalition training program.”

Russia and Syria: The Die Is Cast

Hope the Russians will bring peace to Syria and the refugees will return home.

Despite doubts and denials, Russia is about to embark on an ambitious expansion of its Syrian presence, likely to change the game in the war-torn country. Russia’s small and dated naval repair facility in Tartous will be enlarged, while Jableh near Latakia (Laodicea of old) will become the Russian Air Force base and a full-blown Russian Navy base in the Eastern Mediterranean, beyond the narrow Bosphorus straits. The jihadi multitudes besetting Damascus are likely to be beaten into obedience and compliance, and the government of President Assad relieved from danger and siege. The war with Da’esh (ISIS) is to provide the cover for this operation. This is the first report of this fateful development, based on confidential and usually reliable Russian sources in Moscow

Amsterdam to refund Holocaust victims' late-rent fees

Amsterdam will refund relatives of hundreds of Jews who were fined for being late with their rent during their incarceration in World War II concentration camps, city officials said Friday.

"From today, the descendants of the families can ask to be reimbursed for the fines imposed for late rental payments during World War II, which were unfairly collected," the Dutch city said in a statement.

The issue came to light in April 2013 when a student published archive documents in which Jews who had escaped from the concentration camps were billed for arrears on properties belonging to the city of Amsterdam.

The city even imposed fines for late rents on houses which had been confiscated by the Nazis and occupied by Germans or members of the Dutch National Socialist Movement, the NSB.

Some of the homes had even been destroyed in the German bombing campaign.

New Ukraine Military Doctrine Declares Russia 'Adversary', Calls for NATO Membership

In what can only be described as not remotely surprising, Ukraine's National Security and Defense Council has drafted a new military doctrine which identifies Russia as the country’s “military adversary” and presses for NATO membership. The details:

At the meeting, the council backed plans to abandon its previous status as being against moving closer to the European Union and “to resume the strategic course on Euro-Atlantic integration,” according to a report in Sputnik, a Russian state news site.

“The new military doctrine of Ukraine determines the Russian Federation as the country's military adversary and defines conditions for the liberation of temporary occupied territories of Ukraine,” the council said in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With his abysmal leadership, Poroshenko will not get a NATO membership, and by designating Russia as "The Enemy", is moving on very shaky ground at this moment.

The holdout of the breakaway republics will continue, and I seriously doubt he will be able to do anything serious about it.

A desperate father and a train ride with such grim echoes: ROBERT HARDMAN on the trains carting migrants off to detention camps in Hungary

As word reached back to Keleti, there was disbelief – as much among locals as the migrants themselves. You did not need to be a historian to sense the chilling echo of Europe’s not-too-distant past. The last time people were duped on to trains around here, they ended up in Auschwitz.
Let us be clear that there is nothing remotely comparable to the Nazi era in the conduct or intentions of the Hungarian authorities.
But whatever the validity of their arguments that they are only following EU rules, they are managing to do so with an astonishing lack of basic humanity – not to mention basic public relations.
It should also be said that many Hungarians are appalled. ‘I have no words. I am ashamed to be a Hungarian,’ Gyorgy Kakuk of the opposition Democratic Coalition told me.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder; is Hungary looking at indefinite detention in these camps for the "crime" of being refugees, many of whom cannot possibly get back to Syria?!? And how is THAT going to play out internationally?!?

What about the children?!? Will they be educated?!? Will they have basic medical needs met?!?

The images of the young man, on the train tracks, desperately hugging his wife and child, will haunt me for the rest of this lifetime.

But I can tell you with great assurance who those images will not haunt: the US governmental and military personnel who would characterize these simply "collateral damage" in creating regime change in Syria.

The former President of Dublin City University says that Ireland’s natives will be a minority in the country by the middle of this century, but that immigration is still essential if the country is to remain prosperous.

Professor Ferdinand von Prondzynski was referring to unpublished and unidentified United Kingdom based research. Speaking at the conferring ceremony at DCU on Tuesday he said that the Irish in Ireland will be a minority by 2050 while the Chinese may form the largest ethnic group.

The coming war with Russia

Political and military analysts don’t believe that either side would deliberately start such a war. But with large numbers of military forces operating in such close proximity, anything could happen, they warn.

Bloodshed could be spurred by something as simple as miscommunication between military units, for instance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Or a false-flag attack.

Japanese troops set off a small explosion on a train track in 1931, and falsely blamed it on China in order to justify an invasion of Manchuria. This is known as the “Mukden Incident” or the “Manchurian Incident”. The Tokyo International Military Tribunal found: “Several of the participators in the plan, including Hashimoto [a high-ranking Japanese army officer], have on various occasions admitted their part in the plot and have stated that the object of the ‘Incident’ was to afford an excuse for the occupation of Manchuria by the Kwantung Army ...”

A major with the Nazi SS admitted at the Nuremberg trials that – under orders from the chief of the Gestapo – he and some other Nazi operatives faked attacks on their own people and resources which they blamed on the Poles, to justify the invasion of Poland.

Nazi general Franz Halder also testified at the Nuremberg trials that Nazi leader Hermann Goering admitted to setting fire to the German parliament building in 1933, and then falsely blaming the communists for the arson.

Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev admitted in writing that the Soviet Union’s Red Army shelled the Russian village of Mainila in 1939 – while blaming the attack on Finland – as a basis for launching the “Winter War” against Finland. Russian president Boris Yeltsin agreed that Russia had been the aggressor in the Winter War.

The ECB - EUR22 Trillion Is Missing

Yesterday I published the assets/liabilities of the European Central Bank as provided by them. I provided some analysis that I thought was relevant as I also asked all of you to look at the numbers yourself. To be quite open; I was stunned by the data they provided and shocked by the implications. I had not seen the data in any other source or commented about by anyone and the subject, while admittedly complex, and perhaps made more complex by design, is a huge wake-up call for anyone investing in Europe.

You can hear and see how the terrified journalists are fleeing:

Italian politicians seize on asylum seeker's alleged role in murder

The brutal murder of an elderly couple in Sicily has become a political issue in Italy following the arrest of an African asylum seeker who was allegedly implicated in the killings.

The accused killer, 18-year-old Mamadou Kamara from the Ivory Coast, has been a resident of the Mineo refugee centre in Sicily – the largest such facility in Europe – since 8 June. According to Italian media reports, Kamara was arrested on Sunday after he was found entering Mineo with a bag containing a phone that allegedly belonged to the victims. His pants were allegedly stained with blood.

Ethnic activist and “Constitutional crusader” Glenn Greenwald demands lawlessness on immigration

I write this piece with a heavy heart. As I have previously written, I have long held a great deal of respect for the lawyer, constitutional expert, and brilliant polemicist Glenn Greenwald. Seen from Europe, his articulate defense of civil liberties and a peaceful foreign policy presented a tantalizing alternative of another America to that of the swaggering, neoconservative-dominated administration of George W. Bush. But, as time goes on, the evidence mounts that Greenwald is marked by ethnic biases, conscious or not, which lead him to engage in vicious attacks against Anglo-American identities and, most seriously, to condone illegal immigration that is enormously threatening to the traditional peoples of the West.

EU referendum question is 'biased' in favour of staying tied to Brussels and needs to change, election watchdog warns Cameron

Asking the public to vote 'yes or no' to staying in the European Union is biased in favour of remaining tied to Brussels, Britain's election watchdog has warned.

The Electoral Commission said the public should instead be asked whether they want the UK to 'remain' or 'leave' the European Union.

It has now written to the Government and all MPs urging them to change the question when the European Union Referendum Bill comes back before Parliament on September 7.

Why Iran Won’t Double-cross Russia

Some speculation is weaving through the airwaves that once its US-imposed sanctions are lifted in several months, Iran will shift its existing allegiance with Russia and instead double-cross the Great Russian Bear by doing gas and oil export deals that directly undercut Russia, especially Gazprom’s Turkish Stream gas pipeline aimed at the southern EU states. Were that to occur, perhaps at the same time a Pentagon and CIA backed rearming of the Ukrainian army and supply of massive heavy artillery to launch a far more effective military assault on the eastern Ukraine self-proclaimed republics, the Washington calculation would be a devastating blow to Putin and Russia’s economic stability. No matter what dreams may be floating around the Pentagon however, for many reasons an Iranian double-cross is highly unlikely.

As tragedies shock Europe, a bigger refugee crisis looms in the Middle East

While the world’s attention is fixed on the tens of thousands of Syrian refugees swarming into Europe, a potentially far more profound crisis is unfolding in the countries of the Middle East that have borne the brunt of the world’s failure to resolve the Syrian war.

Those reaching Europe represent a small percentage of the 4 million Syrians who have fled into Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Iraq, making Syria the biggest single source of refugees in the world and the worst humanitarian emergency in more than four decades.

As the fighting grinds into a fifth year, the realization is dawning on aid agencies, the countries hosting the refugees and the Syrians themselves that most won’t be going home anytime soon, presenting the international community with a long-term crisis that it is ill-equipped to address and that could prove deeply destabilizing, for the region and the wider world.

Growing Migrant Crisis Prompts Call for Urgent Meeting of E.U. Officials

With increasing public consternation about the flow of migrants and asylum seekers to Europe and the dangers of their passage, Germany, France and Britain made a joint call on Sunday for an urgent meeting of European Union interior and justice ministers to find “concrete” measures to cope with the escalating crisis.

In a quick response, Luxembourg — which holds the revolving presidency of the European Union — called such a meeting for Sept. 14 in Brussels.

What is most urgent, the interior ministers of the three countries said, is agreement on the establishment of welcome centers in Greece and Italy to house, feed and screen migrants and asylum seekers, and to decide who should be allowed to remain as a legal refugee and who should be sent back home.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

European governments' hubris on this issue, apparently, knows no bounds.

How in the name of heaven, and all that is just, can European
leaders even THINK about sending fleeing refugees back to Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq,Yemen, Somalia, and Libya?!?

Are these people simply "collateral damage", to be discarded as quickly as possible, or human beings, caught in the snares of the barbarism which is war?!?

These horrific wars without end, have been generally started by the US government, or by US proxies, ultimately for private financial corporate gain.

Therefore, from my perspective, the US government should be aiding European governments tasked with dealing with the refugee problems engendered by these wars of conquest. From a national moral perspective, this issue cannot be just "Europe's problem" with which to deal.

‘Critical mass’ of dead migrants in Europe fast approaching – HRW Refugee Prog Director

Europe is facing the largest migration crisis since World War II. But while the EU struggles to formulate a policy to address the influx of people, thousands are dying en route and many are being violently pushed back at borders. Is the EU living up to its obligations toward asylum seekers, and how will it cope with the intake of refugees, given rising xenophobia across the continent? Oksana is joined by Bill Frelick, the Director of the Refugee Program at Human Rights Watch, to analyse these issues.

He correctly notes that the failure to repulse the ongoing migrant invasion is due to a lack of will on behalf of European leaders.

West About to Surrender to Barbarian Invasions of Our Age

"Day and night, hordes of people with fake IDs (or no IDs whatsoever) storm Europe’s undefended borders. Back in the day, they would’ve been stopped and forced to go back by the police, army or border control. Now, however, European warships are used to safely escort the migrants to safe harbors, where they are provided with food, shelter and are allowed to obtain refugee status," says the professor.

Mr. Jensen points out that while there were many migrations in the past, like the migrations of Europeans to the US, Canada and Australia, as well as migrations within Europe itself, things were quite different as migrants had no welfare system to rely on and had to fend for themselves.
