Europe Unglued: The Drive For Brussels To Merge Sovereign Nations Into A Federal Superstate Has Failed.

For some years the European Union ruling bureaucracy has been set on a course leading to political and financial integration of member states including Europe's oldest and most culturally different nations. Such a policy was doomed to fail, but even now with EU bureaucratic dictatorship and contempt for national sovereignty, democracy and basic human rights such as free speech having triggered a resurgence of European nationalism, the Gauleiters are determined to bend member nations to their will. It isn't working however.

Drunkard Juncker says EU Cannot Survive Without Italy

Ignoring warnings from the European Commission, the ECB and the European Commission (as well as practically every other supranational organization in Europe), the populist-led Italian government managed to submit their draft budget to the Commission before a midnight deadline - an outcome that was cheered by BTP traders, who bought back into Italian bonds, once again compressing the spread to bunds, which has blown out in recent months.

But rather than representing a deescalation of tensions between Italy and Brussels, the game of fiscal chicken in which both sides are presently engaged is instead entering its most acute phase, as Brussels now has two weeks to review the budget proposal before it can either accept the plan, or send it back with requests for revisions. And anybody who has been paying even passing attention to the populist government's denigration of EU budgetary guidelines over the past few months should already understand that Brussels won't just sit back and accept the budget for what it is.

In fact, European Commissioner Jean-Claude Juncker hinted as much Tuesday morning when he told Italian reporters that accepting the budget would be tantamount to inviting an widespread revolt against the EU, per Italian newswire ANSA and the FT. Juncker also blasted Italy for abandoning the fiscal commitments it made when it joined the EU. However, though they have wavered from time to time, the Italians haven't kept their intentions to press for a budget deficit equivalent to 2.4% of GDP a secret. Even Giovanni Tria, Italy's economy minister, defended the draft budget, saying the deficit "would be considered normal in all Western democracies, not explosive."

Undeterred by the fact that there's absolutely no political will in the Italian government to back down from their budget stance, despite threats from the ECB to provoke a Greece-style banking crisis if the Italians don't yield to EU rules.

Italy Declares War On Merkel And The EU

Matteo Salvini promises Eurosceptic surge in 2019 EU elections
Matteo Salvini promises Eurosceptic surge in 2019 EU elections - Picture:www.express.co.uk

There was never any doubt that the leaders of the Euroskeptic coalition now governing Italy planned to challence the EU's ruling bureaucracy over Italy's proposed budget. Both Deputy Prime Ministers, Luigi Di Maio of Five Star Movement and Matteo Salvini of The League, were adamant about locking horns with European Union leadership over all issues of sovereignty between now and May’s European Parliamentary elections. This battle, coming as it does as Angeal Merkel's fraile coalition faces another major setback, indicates that Germany's domination of the EU, if not at an end, is looking very vulnerable.

The Italian budget proposes both tax cuts and universal income and has kicked into touch the EU budget limit of 2.0% of GDP, coming in at 2.4%. It has put their Finance Minister, Giovanni Tria, in a difficult position because Tria doesn’t want to negotiate this budget with Brussels, preferring a less confrontational, read more pro-EU, approach.

Salvini and Di Maio, however, have other plans. And since we began covering this story before the Italian election back in March, the imperative that Salvini force the issue of the Troika’s demands – (the EU, European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund) – back down their throats on debt restructuring/forgiveness.

Salvini’s emergence as the leader of this fight, was that Italy, because they are more than technically insolvent, have all the leverage in the negotiations. The size of their outstanding debt and the liabilities existent on the balance sheets of banks across Europe, most notably the nearly $1 trillion in TARGET 2 liabilities, are something Juncker, Draghi, Merkel and Christine LaGarde at the IMF simply cannot ignore. The reason Italy's debt problem, and those of other EU members in southern Europe are so intractable is the single currency, which was created for political reasons without regard for the sheer economic stupidity of tying economies like those of Italy, Greece, Spain and Portugal to the German economic powerhouse. This cut off the debtor nations from their traditional escape route, devaluation.

To successfully challenge EU financial diktat, Salvini and Luigi Di Maio, leader of Five Star have to make a serious effort to negotiate a good deal for Italy with Brussels, Berlin and the IMF. This is why the budget squeaked past the 2.0% limit and then they walked it back to 2.0% but with provisions they knew would anger the EU finance ministers.

The point of this is to provoke Brussels into a punitive reaction and then paint them as the bad guys to shift public sentiment back towards an Italeave position. Italy’s problems are not solvable with Germany holding the purse strings for all the EU countries.

With a big swing towards Euroscepticism and nationalism under way in Germany it looks as though the days of the Federal Europe project are truly numbered. With voting due tomorrow in Bravaria's regional election, the CSU, sister party of Merkel's CDU and traditional ruling party in the Bravarian provincial government and their main rivals the Social Democrats see their respective votes collapsing. Alternate for Germany (AfD)is now pushing up towards 20% nationally and looks likely to have a significant presence in the Bravarian assembly after the votes are counted, while centre left voters are turning to The Greens. If AfD out polls the Greens and denies the CSU a path to a coalition government without them then that could have spillover effects for Angela Merkel.

The latest polls have AfD averaging around 11% versus a strong push up to 18% by the Greens. Given recent shock results we must doubt the accuracy of these polls, but given the recent history of anti - establishment paries it would not be a surprise to see AfD outperform their polling numbers on Sunday.


Spain's Government Collapses: This Is The End Of The Euro

the daily stirrer
Image source: www.andydavey.com/

The Spanish government, a fragie coalition at its inception, loks set to collapse in the next few weeks as the Ciudadanos party has broken ranks and thrown in its lot with the opposition group, PSOE (socialist) and Podemos in a non-confidence vote against PM Rajoy. After months of strife following a vote by citizens of the most prosperous province, Catalona, to secede from the nation, which prompted a fascistic response from Rajoy's government as it persecuted Catalan politicians, jailing some and causing others to flee the country, this can only mean Spain has taken a giant step towards disintegration.

The Spanish political crisis is inextricably linked to the pending conflict betwen the new Eurosceptic Italian government and Brussels, not simply because the nations are culturally and economically so alike, but because both, having been coerced into joining the signle currency, now combine to create huge financial uncertainty in the eurozone.

Sometimes a crisis in needed to make people see that the emperor, strutting around in all his pomp and glory, is not just stark bollock naked, but also is afflicted with several disfiguring diseases.

Both countries, though Italy perhaps more than Spain, would by now have experienced total economic collapse had the European Central Bank (ECB) not propped up their economies bu mortgaging Europe's future. In essence, the ECB's Mario Draghi is buying up trillions in sovereign bonds to disguise the fact that the present economic condition of the Eurozone makes it inevitable that the poorer south of Europe will lose against the north.

Club Med as the poorer nations are known (or less politely PIGS, Portugal, Italy, Spain, Greece) needs a mechanism for devaluing their currencies from time to time to keep up in order to reduce the burden of interest due on Sovereign Bonds. Signing up for the euro meant they lost that sovereign right, their economies are now tied to the German economic powerhouse, and the single currency itself doesn’t provide a way out. The euro has become a liability to the poor nations, but if we did a bit deeper beneath the headline figures, it’s also a drain on Germany, which, one Britain leaves, will be the only net contributor to the EU budget and thus is forced to either bail out Italy and Spain or crush them the way Greece, Portugal and Ireland have been crushed and are now little more that client sttes of the Brussels bureaucratic empire.

Italy and Spain are much larger economies than Greece, Portugal or Ireland, and therefore present much biggr problems, which are about to become infinitely more painful than had those countries been able to devalue their currencies.

The main fault of the euro, it is that: it creates problems that would not have existed if the common currency itself didn’t. This was inevitable from the get-go. The fatal flaw was baked into the cake.

The common currency has been rendered obsolete by technology, in 2018, people have no need of banks or exchange bureaus to exchange their dollars, krone, pounds, or yen, we can either pay in plastic or get some local currency out of an ATM. All this could be done at automatically adjusting exchange rates without the use of all sorts of middlemen that existed when the euro was introduced.

Americans, Australians and travellers from non Eurozone European nations such as Britain or Sweden visiting Europe already use this exact same system and it would work just as seamlessly for Francs, Deutschmarks, Peseta or Lira. Governments could easily agree rules that make it impossible for banks and credit card companies to charge more than, say, 0.5%, on currency exchange transactions. Nations do not need a body like the European Union in order to make deals with each other.

Technology has eradicated the reason for the euro's existence, but the euro is here to stay because the real but unspoken reason it was created was to ease the path for integrating the EU member states into a single political entity. It is therefore going to cause a lot more pain and mayhem before it collapses because Europe's bureaucratic elite are not going to give up their dream or a pan European empire easily. Any country that even thinks about leaving the system will be punished hard, even if leaving is the only was to prevent that nation sinking into third world poverty.

So many carers have been built of fulfilling the dream of a single European superstate run by unelected bureaucrats, so much has invested in it, and the richer nations and their banks still benefit hugely from the problems poorer ones face. The countries that got it right were Britain and Sweden, both of which more than met the conditions for single currency membership but decided to stay out of the eurozone. Italy, Spain, Portugal and Greece did not meet the conditions but through creative accounting and bullying in brussels were forced in, with disastrous results for all.

If, however, anyone want to take out a bet on who’s going to be worse off when the euro whip comes down, post Brexit Britain or for instance Italy, Spain or France?




'Islam Doesn't Belong to Germany' - New Interior Minister

While mainstream media was hailing the political mastery of Hausfrau - Volksfuhrer Merkel in negotiationg a new coalition deal to keep her in power for another four years, after Germany had been without a government for almost six months, The Daily Stirrer (and other alt_news sites to be fair) warned that the new government of Europe's most powwerful economy was fragile and full of holes. Only days after Merkel was sworn in for a fourth term, the holes in her coalition started to appear. Germany's new Interior Minister Horst Seehofer of the CSU party, a well-known and strident critic of The Chancellor open-door policy toward migrants, recently said that Islam is not part of German culture.

Seehofer addresses his party conference
Seehofer addresses his party conference

Similar statements have been repeatedly made by the Alternative for Germany party which opposes mass immigration and is Eurosceptic. This is in constrast to the sentiments of Merkel and some of her more sycophantic hechmen, who have repeatedly stated, to the detriment of their own paty's standing, that Islam is as muvh a German religion as Christianity.

Seehofer, leader of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), on whose support Merkel relies, publicly opposed the idea that the Islam is part of German culture. "No. Islam does not belong to Germany," Seehofer said in an interview with the German newspaper Das Bild. "Germany has been shaped by Christianity."

In particular, the politician stressed that some aspects of German everyday life have been prompted by Christian traditions. This includes, for example, that all supermarkets and stores are closed on Sundays and that many public holidays coincide with church holidays such as Easter and Christmas.

Although the politician told the media source that Muslims are a part of Germany, he stressed that the country won't abandon its centuries-long beliefs and national traditions.

The "Islam doesn't belong to Germany" remark was used by the AfD party in their general election campaign last year. The right-wing party which is now the third-largest bloc in the Bundestag and the country's largest opposition party is known for its tough stance on migration.

Seehofer also said that he was working on a "master plan" to speed up deportations of migrants whose asylum applications had been rejected. In 2015, Merkel announced that Germany would open its borders to migrants, fleeing to Europe in the hundreds of thousands in search of a safer future.

However, of late Berlin has been trying to curb its open migration policy, partly, in a bid to balance out the relationship between the CDU and the CSU which wants to see a harder line on immigration, after Merkel's party took a Major hit in the election, losing so much support that Merkel had to ally with traditional opponents to stay in power.

Number of Illegal Migrants Crossing Sea to Italy DOUBLES in One Month

With crucial government elections just over a month away,the EU Border Agency (Frontex) has revealed the number of illegal migrants crossing the Mediterranean to enter Italy illegally has doubled in the space of a month.

"The number of migrants arriving in Italy via the Central Mediterranean route in January rose to more than 4,800, double the figure from the previous month, when smuggling activities were affected by fighting in Libya near the embarcation points favoured by the organized crime networks that control people smuggling rackets. This increase has come in a season when it might be expected poor weather would slow the flow," the agency reported.

"According to preliminary data, Eritreans were the largest group of migrants detected on this route, followed by nationals of Pakistan and Tunisia," the report added.

A response from the Italian interior ministry claimed that the number of illegal migrants is down overall but appeared to agree with the last point, with ANSA reporting the number of Eritrean arrivals at 1,312, followed by Tunisians at 763, Pakistanis at 279, and Nigerians at 252.

Mass migration has been responsible a rapid collapse in support for the EU among Italy’s younger voters in recent years, with a 2017 report noting the number of resident foreigners has exploded by 270 per cent since 2002.

Opinion polls ahead of the elections suggest Italians are unhappy with the changes in society mass immigration has broyght about, particularly in the cities, with the younger generation the most sceptical about the new, multicultural Italy. A huge 65 per cent of under-35s said they had a negative view of immigration in a recent survey, and polling shows the Italian public’s faith in the supranational European Union, which does much to encourage open borders, is collapsing. The outcome of the election could see an anti - EU coalition take power and fulfill pledges to hold an in / out referendum similar to Brexit.

After becoming the new front line for Europe's migrant crisis, Italy stopped short of adopting the tough love policy on boat migrants of Australia, which brought seaborne people-smuggling (and drownings) to an end by insisting that illegal migrants would all be turned around or processed offshore and housed in safe countries nearer to home if found to be legitimate refugees.

Italian Anti - EU leader Matteo Slavini Slams brussels


The E.U. can go fuck itself, says leader of popular Italian populist Matteo Salvini, frontrunner to win the nation’s coming elections, has said, in an explosive interview.

With no chance of any party contesting the Italian election winning an overall majority, Salvini, a member of the European Parliament and leader of the Lega Nord party, on Thursday agreed on a joint manifesto with two other right-leaning leaders, and the coalition is now favourite to govern Italy after the vote on March 4th 2018.

During a heated interview with Italian TV Channel Rete 4 this week, Salvini played up the eurosceptic position of his party, accusing brussels of meddling in the Italian election process and blasting the bureaucrats: "Europe can go f*ck itself! The European Union has been shafting us for the last 15 years and we are worse off than 15 years ago,” he added. "European measures are the last thing I am interested in."

He also attacked the EU Economic Affairs Commissioner, Pierre Moscovici, for interfering with the Italian election process. His tirade against Brussels continued on Twitter, where he wrote: "Slaves of the European Union? No, thanks! I can’t wait for Italy, with our government, to regain its sovereignty to defend the national interest in any way possible.

"Unacceptable intrusion from a European bureaucrat in Italy’s elections. The immigration policies and economic sacrifices imposed by the European Union have been a disaster and will be rejected by the free vote of Italians. European bureaucrats calm down."

He added on the social media platform Thursday: "League will always defend our fisheries and the agriculture of Italy. Enough with the European standards that slaughter our businesses and our territory!"

Mr. Salvini agreed on a joint manifest this Friday with Silvio Berlusconi, former four-time Prime Minister of Italy, and Giorgia Meloni, leader of the nationalist Brothers of Italy party, promising to slash taxes for Italians.

"The Italy I have in mind for the next few years: reduces taxes and attract businesses," he explained on Twitter, before praising U.S. President Donald J. Trump’s tax cuts.

Polls suggest the right-wing alliance will win the most seats in the election, but fall short of an outright majority, making it hard to predict what sort of coalition government might emerge.Explaining the agreement on Twitter, Mr. Salvini said: "Whoever gets one more vote between me and Berlusconi will make the President of the Council."

Much will depend on the performance of Five Star Movement, an anti EU, anti - immigration party that is to the left of Salvini's coalition. Though Five Star will not join forces to form a coalition with Berlusconi's Forza Itala and The Brothers Of Italy, neither will they support any pro - EU coalition.

Nobel economist Says Euro was flawed from start and destined to collapse'

In a book to be published next week, ‘The Euro: How a Common Currency Threatens the Future of Europe,' (an extract of which has been published by The Guardian, Nobel Prize winning economist Joseph Stilgitz writes the European Single Currency System (The Euro) was flawed at birth and is destined to collapse unless huge changes are made to the common currency system.

"The euro is often described as a bad marriage. A bad marriage involves two people who never should have been joined together making vows that are supposedly indissoluble. The euro is more complicated: it is a union of 19 markedly different countries tying themselves together," said an extract from the book published by the Guardian.

A professor of economics at Columbia University, and former senior vice president and chief economist of the World Bank, Stiglitz observed that the euro had neither delivered prosperity to European Union member states, nor had it smoothed the path to political integration of those members into a single political entity, the two principal goals of they system's architects. As a result, European nations are now starting to divide into cultural blocs and view each other with suspecion. German Dominance Of Europe Through A European Bureaucracy Germany, the only member which had benefited from the Euro, until Changellor Angela Merkel's 'open doors' immigration policy allowed unskilled, illiterate third world peasants to flood into the country, is now looking politically isolated in the organisation it once presumed to dominate.

According to the Stilgitz a single currency designed to hold together a region with enormous economic and political diversity is almost incapable of working. Excuse us for blowing our own trumpet but this is what our own finance expert, Phil T. Looker, has been saying for a decade.

Stilgitz also criticized the eurozone leaders claiming they had no proper understanding of what a monetary union meant. The structure of the eurozone,its rules and regulations, was not designed to promote growth, employment and stability but to advance the single European supertate agenda and globalism.

The critique of Eurozone economics continues, "The mark of a well-functioning economy is rapid growth, the benefits of which are shared widely, with low unemployment. What has occurred in Europe is the opposite. .. A small country in Europe could, for instance, be in a recession when the rest of Europe is doing well."

Or as we have witnessed since the Euro was launched in 2001, a large and economically powerful country with a solid economy (Germany) could be doing well while other large but less economically stable nations such as France and Italy struggle and small nations with weak economies (Greece, Portugal,) face ever deepening economivc chaos.

According to Stiglitz large parts of the Eurozone now face a 'lost decade,' and even Europe's so-called successes have become colossal failures. He gives the example of Spain where official statistics show unemployment has fallen from 26 percent in 2013, to 20 percent at the beginning of 2016 - but nearly one out of every two people are unemployed. This is possible because European Union rules on measuring unemployed statistics dictate that people who have been out of work for two years are excluded from the statistics.

The economist suggested the best way forward for the euro area is a ‘flexible euro,’ where each member country adopts its own version of the currency. They could of course simply revert to the curriencies they had before monetary union.

Scrapping the idea of monetary integration could help the weak southern European countries export more and import less, helping to achieve a trade balance and full employment, writes Stiglitz.

French Prime Minister says: "Europe Is Falling Apart"

After years of blythely ignoring years of economic stagnation, social deterioration, and an unemployment rate which stubbornly refuses to fall below double-digits for countries like Greece, Spain and Italy, Europe appears to have finally been shocked into recognising the reality of its situation by Brexit and the Trump election in the USA. Bureaucrats have responded with their usual tactic, scaremongering. Do as we say or you'll be sorry say the unelected pen pushers who have been chief advocates of scrapping the sovereignty of member states and merging all twenty eight nations, from mighty Germand and proud france at one end of the scale to little Malta at the other. Case in point: French prime minister Manuel Valls, who speaking in Berlin, said that the European Union is in danger of breaking apart unless France and Germany, in particular, work harder to stimulate growth and employment and heed citizens' concerns.

"Europe is in danger of falling apart," Valls said at an event organized by the Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper. "So Germany and France have a huge responsibility."

Translation: confirming what we have said for years, the ECB did nothing for the economy while propping up markets and banks, and now it is time to actually focus on the people, ideally by launching a massive fiscal spending stimulus funded by borrowing vast sums of money from global banks.

Today Reuters reported M. Valls said it fell on Germany and France, for decades the axis around which the EU revolved, to help refocus the bloc to tackle an immigration crisis, a lack of solidarity between member states, Britain's looming exit, and terrorism.

He said France must continue to open up its economy, not least by cutting corporate taxation, while Germany and the EU as a whole must increase investment that would stimulate growth and job creation, as well as boosting defense.

Taking a stab at the UK, Valls said that as Britain seeks to negotiate its post-Brexit relationship with the EU, hoping to restrict immigration from the EU while maintaining as much access as possible to the EU single market, it must be prevented from cherry-picking.

"If they are able to have all the advantages of Europe without the inconveniences, then we are opening a window for others to leave the European Union," Valls said. Immigration was one of the main drivers of Britons' vote to leave the EU, and Valls said the bloc, which more than a million migrants entered last year, had to regain control of its borders.

Still, confirming that the lessons of Brexit and the US election are finally seeping through, Valls said the Brexit vote and Donald Trump's election victory showed how important it was to listen to angry citizens, and that "politicians scared of making decisions were opening the door to populists and demagogues."

In France, opinion polls suggest that the far-right, anti-EU, anti-immigration National Front leader Marine Le Pen will win the first round of the presidential election next April, before losing the runoff according to polls. However, if there is anything the past 6 months have demonstrated, it is how wrong they are at predicting black swan events such as a possible Le Pen presidency.

Europe is at The End of its Existence. Western Europe Is Virtually Dead

by Egbert Nokakon, 31 July 2016

Speaking on Polish television, former counter-terror police officer Jacek Wrona, and an academic expert on information warfare and terrorism have spoken of concerns about the intellectual and spiritual collapse of European civilisation, which they said is “at the end of its existence”.

Wrona and military history academic Dr. Rafal Brzeski were guests on the Polish TVP Info programme discussing the Munich shooting in which nine were killed, and were forced to conclude it was a symptom of the end of European Civilisation. Propaganda expert Dr. Brzeski rejected suggestions in German media that the Munich killer — an 18 year old Muslim — was mad, pointing out the killing had “an element of planning”, reports wPolityce.

As for the treatment of the attack in the mainstream media, the academic said it was a case of the [German] ministry of propaganda at work. "There is nothing worse than self-censorship in journalism", he said, referring to the mainstream media habit, not just in Germany but all over Europe and the USA of trying to suppress awareness of the links between most terror attacks and the more extrem sects of the Sunni Muslim faith. Highlighting the reluctance of mainstream media to recognise the killings as a terrorism, Brzeski said: "this is definitely an act of terror… the execution of an act of terrorism. He was setting out to scare people, and that is an act of terror".

Pre-empting the press conference in which the German Chancellor said her government stood by its disatrous 'open door' immigration policy and other policy decisions which have helped create the migrant crisis, and the immigration driven crime wave (sexual offences against European women in particular) while recognising the frustration of the German people with her government's approach, the academic remarked: "Germans have had enough of this, which does not mean the government has had enough. These are two different approaches".

Former police counter-terror specialist Mr. Wrona expressed deep concern for the future of Europe on the back of a summer of terror attacks across France and Germany. Picking out the European Union sacred cow of free movement of people across Europe which has effectively meant free movement of criminals from outside the EU to anywhere within it, and also the free movement of illegal ex-Soviet weapons from Eastern to Western Europe, the security expert said: “The whole Balkans are flooded with weapons, and from the Balkans have come two million people.

“Together with them came arms dealers, gangsters, drug dealers. Buying a Kalashnikov [Soviet automatic rifle] in Bosnia and Herzegovina is as it was with us after the war. You can buy one for peanuts”.

The free flow of guns and grenades West is not the main problem Europe faces said the
