Spain Will Face Third General Election In A Year Unless Socialists Accept Coalition

Daily Stirrer, 2 August, 2016

Of all the European nations plunged into political and economic chaos as a result of EU social and immigration policies along with membership of the European single currency system (the Euro), Spain, neither as large nor as economically powerful as France or Italy, but the biggest of the naions to have developed rapidly as a result of injections of EU cash, has been hit the hardest since the Europonzi scheme went wrong. Since inconclusive elections in December 2015 Spain has not had an effective government because political new kid on the block PODEMOS, a left wing, anti - integration, anti - austerity party refused to enter a coalition with either of the groups in the corrupt, Brussels controlled duopoly that has run Spain for decades.

In June 2016, after repeated failures to form a ruling coalition in the Spanish assembly, King Felippe orderd acting Prime Minister Rajoy to hold new elections. Spain’s center-right PP won the most seats in the parliamentary elections, with the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE) finishing second. None of the political forces has an absolute majority and thus cannot form a government on their own. Following the elections, Rajoy initiated negotiations to form a government, which have again proved futile.

On July 28, Rajoy accepted the offer of King of Spain Felipe VI to form a new government.

"Socialists should change their position. If the Socialists continue saying no [to the coalition], there will be new elections and everyone knows this, forming the government as soon as possible was a priority for the country." Rajoy said, . Unfortunately not everyone did know it because Rajoy's coalition could not muster enough votes to get their business through the legislature

Spain needs a government due to the economic situation, the need for stable institutions and for the government to put forward a budget, which will fulfill the obligations towards the Spanish people and the European Union. Rajoy led the talks with major Spanish political leaders on his own where he presented the future government program. He repeatedly spoke against holding a new round of parliamentary elections in Spain.

Now however the acting Prime minister appears to have changed his tune. Speaking earlier today Rajoy warned on that the country may have to hold a third round of elections, after his Socialist rival refused to back his efforts to form a coalition government. Rajoy's Popular Party (PP), in power since 2011, won the June 26th vote but fell short of an absolute majority, winning 137 seats out of 350.

The acting Prime Minister has since been tasked by the king to form a coalition or minority government, which he could only do by pushing through a parliamentary vote of confidence. Pedro Sanchez, whose Socialist party came second in June elections with 85 seats and who has the power to block Rajoy, refuses to back him.

"We are not going to back something we want to change ... the left will not back the right," Sanchez told reporters after meeting Rajoy.

Cracking Up and Cracking Down: Spain Is Bursting at the Seams

from The Daily Sheeple

‘As the turmoil in Greece slowly yields (for now at least) it’s important to remember that the small Eurozone nation is hardly the only one in the EU that is in trouble, both fiscally and socially. In truth, it seems that Europe as a whole can hardly contain itself, and you can strike sparks just about anywhere. Europe is a fiscal mess with an aging population, ruled by a burdensome continent spanning bureaucracy, and simmering with ethnic and cultural tensions that range in age from ancient to modern.

So while the media is busy dancing around Greece as if the future of Europe lies solely in their hands, stop and take a look around the rest of that continent. I think you’ll find that the Eurozone could unravel just about anywhere. But if I could pick just one vulnerable country, I think Spain would be at the top of my list of the most unstable nations in the EU.

They have numerous of economic problems, including one of the highest debt to GDP ratios in the EU, and an unemployment rate that has exceeded 20% for many years now. In response to their fiscal and social woes, their government is rapidly spiraling into an despotic regime that hasn’t been seen since the days of Franco. Just last month the government handed down some of the most draconian free speech laws in the EU.’

Spain Goes Full Police State; Government Enacts Law Forbidding Dissent, 'Unauthorized' Photography Of Law Enforcement

Spain is now a police state again. On July 1st, its much-protested "gag" law went into effect, instantly making criminals of those protesting the new law. Not since the death of General Franco has free speech been a crime in the country. Among the many new repressive clauses in the new law is a €30,000-€600,000 fine for "unauthorized protests," which can be combined for maximum effect with a €600-€300,000 fine for "disrupting public events."

This horrible set of statutes has arisen from Spain's membership of the Euro single currency system which has impoverished the country, caused catastrophically high unemployment and become a focus for anti-austerity protests, the European precursor to the Occupy Wall Street movement. Fines, fines and more fines await anyone who refuses to treat the authoritairia government with the respect it demands from citizens.

The law also extends its anti-free-speech restrictions to social media, where users can face similar fines for doing nothing more than encouraging or organizing a protest. Failing to present ID when commanded is another fine. And then there's this:

"Showing a "lack of respect" to those in uniform or failing to assist security forces in the prevention of public disturbances could result in an individual fine of between €600 and €30,000."

Spain's legislators thought of everything. To ensure these crackdowns on protests go off with a minimum of public backlash, "respected" police officers are being given a blank check to use as much force as they feel necessary when breaking up "unauthorized protests." The law doesn't directly instruct police to behave badly, but it does provide a very helpful increase in opacity.

A clause in the wide-ranging legislation that critics have dubbed the "gag law" provides for fines of up to 30,000 euros ($33,000) for "unauthorized use" of images of working police that could identify them, endanger their security or hinder them from doing their jobs.

Somehow, the Spanish government has managed to find an expectation of privacy within its public spaces and applied it to its public servants. While the law does make some provision for the public's "right to know," it also defers to law enforcement's judgment when it comes to what is or isn't "authorized use" of photographs/video depicting police performing their public duties.

Obviously, this small nod towards the public's rights is completely insincere. The government wants to clamp down on protests and it obviously can't be embarrassed by award-winning photographs/video of its police officers beating civilians wholly uninvolved with the protests that so angried up the cops' blood.

In its Desperation, Scandal-Riddled Spanish Government Criminalizes Solidarity Among Citizens

On Tuesday, March 10, 19 Spanish citizens were rounded up in dawn raids by the Madrid police, accused of committing a crime against the Spanish state they were arrested and taken to police stations. Their crime? Trying to prevent, through non-violent resistance, the eviction of a local resident. If found guilty, the suspects could face crippling fines.

Welcome to Rajoy’s Spain, where helping out your neighbor in his or her hour of need is now a crime against the government.

In most countries affected by austerity measures as a resukt of the 2008 (and counting) financial crisis, the eviction of neighbors and local residents is usually a quiet, low key affair. Often people don’t realize that their neighbors have gone until the house comes up for auction.

In Spain, however, things are different. The incompetence of government departments, the greed of the banks and the heavy handedness of police combine to make foreclosures a very volatile public spectacle, sometimes drawing the participation and attention of scores or even hundreds of people.

When a local resident is threatened with eviction word quickly spreads and groups of neighbors and social activists begin forming to support the homebuyer. By the time police officers arrive a wall of protestors has formed between them and the front door of the property. . This rather unusual social phenomenon has arisen as a direct result of the network effects and organization dynamics offered by the Platform for Mortgage Victims (PAH), an advocacy group formed in 2008 with two main goals: to give legal advice to homeowners and to push for reform of a deeply imbalanced legal superstructure that is rigged against struggling home owners and in favor of the banks. In Spain, debt is neither forgiven nor forgotten. Even when a bank, often with the heavy-handed assistance of the forces of law and order, has repossessed someone’s home, that person could still be left on the hook for thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of euros of debt. Banks in Spain, as in most countries, have the right to auction houses in foreclosure. But if no buyers appear, the bank can take ownership of the house for 60% of its original or current face value (whichever the bank prefers). The banks then have 15 years to go after the homeowner. Indeed, most Spanish foreclosure victims end up personally liable for not only much of the outstanding loan, but also thousands of euros in penalty interest charges and tens of thousands of euros in court fees. In the end they could end up owing more than the original mortgage. Put simply, in Spain debt is for life and bankruptcy is never an option, as Ada Colau, a human rights lawyer who works for PAH, told the New York Times:

Has German Finance Minister Goven The OK For A Greex EU Exit Referendum?
Comments by German Finance Chief Wolfgang Schaeuble seemed to indicate that the EU's paymaster is ready to let Greek PM Tsipras put continuing Euro single currency membership for Greece to a popular vote. Any such move could affect negotiations with creditors by allowing Syriza to claim it hasn’t betrayed its support base, but a vote also risks plunging the country into turmoil should the gambit backfire

Tens of thousands join Madrid anti-austerity rally

Spaniards took to the streets in Madrid on Saturday in support of new anti-austerity party Podemos, a week after Greece elected its hard-left ally Syriza. Tens of thousands of protestors chanting "Yes we can!" made their way from Madrid city hall to Puerta del Sol, the city's main square. Podemos and its anti-austerity message have been surging in polls ahead of elections later this year but have gained additional momentum following the victory of Greece's anti - austerity party.

"There are many people that agree with the need for change. Enough already with stealing - that the corrupt take everything and we can't do anything," Dori Sanchez, a 23-year-old unemployed teacher who came from Manovar in southeastern Spain told reporters after travelling north for the rally.

A Podemos press officer said 260 buses brought supporters to the capital from cities and towns around Spain to swell support for the "March for Change". Hundreds of locals volunteers offered accommodation to the travellers. Demonstrators carried banners that read "Universal Basic Income," "Tick, tock its time for change" and "Together we can".

Syriza beat mainstream Greek parties by pledging to end austerity, as Podemos aims to do in Spain's general election due in November. both might find it impossible to honour that pledge while remaining in the EU and the Eurozone, as their manifesto promises say they will. Podemos was formed just a year ago, but has surged in opinion polls with promises to fight what Iglesias calls the traditional "caste" of political leaders.

Like Syriza, Podemos has found popular support by targeting corruption and rejecting austerity programmes purportedly aimed at lifting the countries out of deep economic crisis but which are in reality much more likely to see the wealth gap between rich and poor widening.

Podemos has also found popularity among Spanish voters enraged by a string of corruption scandals, as well as public spending cuts imposed by the conservative ruling party and previously by the Socialists after the economic crisis erupted in 2008. Spain has now officially exited recession, the country grew by 1.4 percent last year according to provisional data released Friday but this is mostly due to printing money which devalues wages and savings. Nearly one in four workers are unemployed and the figure among the 18 - 24 age group is close to fifty per cent. Salaries for many people have dropped and the number of workers on low-paid short-term contracts or working part time has soared.

Spain's street protest movement has died down since 2013 after the government imposed draconian penalties on protestors but some of the leaders formed Podemos in January 2014. Four months later, the party won five seats in the European Parliament, with more than 1.2 million Spaniards voting for it.

Podemos has overtaken the mainstream opposition Socialist Party in several opinion polls, and in some has topped the list ahead of the conservative ruling People's Party (PP). The Socialists and the PP have ruled Spain alternately since the country returned to democracy after the death of the dictator Francisco Franco in 1975.

Spain Takes a Giant Step Backward, Towards Its Dark Past

Thousands of protestors, both young and old, took to the streets and central plazas of some thirty Spanish cities today to protest for the right to protest. It is a right that should be respected in any self-respecting democracy.

But not in Spain, thanks to new legislation which is on the verge of becoming law. Under the Orwellian-titled Law for Citizen Security, or more aptly named “Gag Law,” virtually all forms of political protest, including all non-violent forms, will soon be criminalized. But not with penal charges – most criminal cases brought against non-violent political demonstrators are promptly thrown out of court – but administrative ones. That way, the government can circumvent the traditional checks and balances of the criminal justice system while pocketing millions in administrative fines.

Here’s a quick breakdown of the financial sanctions the government seeks to impose (and, of course, collect upon) for acts of political protest or disobedience:

• Surrounding a government building: €30,000
• Criticizing or insulting the country, government or head of state during a protest or on social media: €30,000
• Participating in a demonstration that does not have the government’s prior approval: €100 – €1,000
• Organizing a demonstration that turns violent: €30,000
• Participating non-violently in a demonstration that gets out of control: €1,000
• Refusal to show personal documentation (I.D. card, passport) to the police: €1,000
• Uploading images of riot police in action that the government considers against their honor, intimacy or the public image of the police force: €100-€1,000.
• Taking part in a demonstration outside a political party’s headquarters on election day: €30,000-€600,000.
• Trying to prevent the forced eviction of a local resident, something that has become common practice among communities in recent years: €1,000-€30,000.

The list goes on and on while the fines rise and fall between €100 and €600,000. For the government, the sweeping new measures are all about “securing public order,” as a prerequisite for “ensuring individual liberty” – a roundabout way of saying that it is instituting a police state to protect itself.

For many Spanish people, the new law is the ultimate affront, bearing disturbing echoes of the Public Order Tribunal that Franco’s dictatorship used to try political crimes such as public criticism of the Chief of State, justice courts and government; rebellion and sedition; public disorder, illegal propaganda, and the discovery and dissemination of official state secrets.

Resurrecting the ghosts of Spain’s dark Francoist past is the ultimate refuge of a scoundrel government that has reneged on just about all of its election pledges, is mired neck-deep in just about every political corruption scandal imaginable (I wrote about it in April last year: Spain’s Descent into Banana Republicanism), and is to a great extent directly responsible for the collapse of some of Spain’s biggest savings banks.

Having lost all political legitimacy and most of the public’s trust, the Rajoy regime is doing what most desperate governments do when their back is firmly up against the wall: protect its own neck, and those of its corporate and financial masters (many of whom bear a striking resemblance to the same corporate and financial masters that not so long ago enjoyed Franco’s zealous protection).

The fact that the Rajoy regime has an overwhelming majority in parliament means that its every wish is quite literally Spain’s command. Despite the fact that the Citizens’ Security Law is opposed unanimously by every other political party in the land, not to mention over 80 percent of the Spanish public, it nonetheless passed through congress with breezy ease.

But it’s not just in the political sphere that Rajoy et al are making their unwieldy presence felt. Just in the past week Spain’s Attorney General, Eduardo Torres Dulce, resigned, citing outside (i.e. government) interference in his duties. Two of the main causes of Torres Dulce’s fallout with the government were his refusal to stop the court case against the governing Popular Party’s chief treasurer, Luís Barcenas, and his initial unwillingness to launch a criminal case against Catalonia’s premier Artur Mas for daring to call a purely symbolic mock-referendum on November 11.

Torres Dulce’s replacement – a judge by the name of Consuelo Madrigal Martínez-Pereda – will be Spain’s third Attorney General in as many years. Just how long she lasts in the job will, one assumes, depends on her ability and willingness to see things the government’s way.

Another institution that is under intense pressure to see things through the government’s lens (or else!) is the state media. In the last three years virtually all voices critical of the government’s deeply unpopular austerity measures have been purged from both national radio and television. The Rajoy regime has also had a leading hand in the removal of a number of chief editors from national newspapers, including allegedly El Mundo and La Vanguardia.

None of these actions are remotely befitting of a supposedly democratic government. But then, just as I wrote a year ago in Fear Loathing and Collective Amnesia in Crisis Ridden Spain, Spain’s transition into a fully fledged constitutional democracy never came even close to completion. Now it’s being reversed at breakneck pace.

Indeed, the only remotely positive news is that the Rajoy government has just eleven months of absolute majority left. After the next elections the Popular Party will either have to form part of a coalition government or be demoted to the opposition benches. That said, Rajoy & Co can do a hideous amount of damage in eleven months. By Don Quijones

Bankrupt Spain to Spend €1 Billion Euros To Equip Police With Riot Gear As The Nation Turns Against Their Government

by Ian R Thorpe - 11 September, 2014

Spains reponse to protestors
Spain's reponse to protestors (Picture source: The Local)

The gov’t of Spain revealed it is to spend nearly €1 billion on police riot gear, in spite of the nation’s sovereign debt rising by €58 billion over the last year. Authorities have been alarmed by widespread protests of increasing intensity and fear a new wave of violence will sweep the nation in the coming months. With well established separatist movements in the Basque and Catalan regions, Spain is no stranger to civil unrest caused by discontent with the increasingly remote and high handed elitism of those who run the country on the Corporate State model. The Guardian ran a report on the extent of the problem recently.

Spain is described as having become the protest capital of Europe. In the first half of 2013 there were approximastely 36,000 protests in Spain, with the city of Barcelona alone accounting for 2,500 of them, according Spanish news sources. This is hardly surprising with unemployment at around tenty-five percent and joblessness in the 16 - 24 age group around fifty percent, that's a lot of discontent. Add to that the usual stories of the hungry big - government monster constant;ly demanding a bigger share of resources and the vampire like EU bleeding Spain's businesses and savers dry, and a population noted for having a more volatile collective temprament that north european states and sooner or later something must explode. But is heavy handed policing by a militarised police force the answer?

The Interior Ministry says they will be purchasing equipment ranging from riot batons to stab proof vests and water cannons to help deal with protestors. Law enforcements said the water cannons are necessary, "given the current social dynamic." The Coordinadora 25-S activist group already has plenty of protests planned for autumn. The next march is planned for September 11, to mark Catalonia Day, while they are also planning a 2-day strike in October to support teachers.

Amnesty International in Spain said the purchase of riot gear was a worrying development. "They say they buy this material to control disturbances, but how exactly will it be used?" said Amnesty's Ángel Gonzalo. "In Greece we have documented how these water cannons, when used a short distance, can provoke severe injuries and commotions."

Social activist group Coordinadora 25-S, which has its roots in the 15-M movement and called a 'day of action' in 2011 that saw tens of thousands of Spaniards take to the streets to call for “Real Democracy NOW”, has labelled the upcoming season of protests event as “the autumn of unconstitutionality”.

The group has announced it plans to carry out protests against Spain’s new monarch King Felipe VI, education cuts carried out by the current government and other social demos falling under the category of “Marches for Dignity”, online daily 20 minutos reported. Read more on the government reaction at Ten New Security Laws That Are Shocking Spaniards.

Protests are expected over gov’t plans to impose heavy fines on those taking part in unauthorised protests and demonstrations against the monarchy with a demand for a referendum as to whether Spain should become a republic. At Felipe VI’s coronation in June, when he took over the throne from his father Juan Carlos, 3,000 anti-monarchy activists flooded the area in central Madrid, EuropaPress reports. Waving the red, yellow and purple flags of Spain’s second republic, protesters demanded the abolition of the monarchy.

There was a heavy police presence with 7,000 riot police controlling the center of the capital with some 120 snipers keeping watch, however the Local reported that people were being detained just for saying the word ‘republic’ or for wearing the color purple, which is associated with the anti-monarchy movement. It is difficult to see how changing the consitution would improve matters but then as long as the greedy fangs of the EU Bureaucracy remain buried in Spain's jugular is is equally difficult to see how anything might help.

Violence Flares In Spain As E U Imposed Austerity Pain Increases

by Little Nicky Machiavelli - 2013-04-27 Those who stumble through life with their eyes closed may have missed the news last week that unemployment in Spain has reached 27% and EU imposed austerity measures are causing severe hardship as they have in France and Portugal. And now, as has already happening in Greece though not in Portugal yet, resentment of the Euronazi's determination to put their cherished single European government project ahead of the welfare of Europe's people, resentment is turning into violence.

Police and protesters have clashed at an anti-government demo in the Spanish capital, Madrid, with bottles thrown and officers making baton charges. The government is set to reveal a new plan to turn the economy around.

There were violent scenes close to the Spanish national parliament on Thursday, as unrest broke out at a demonstration by protesters calling for politicians to stand down.

Some 1,000 activists gathered in front of a police barrier surrounding Madrid's lower house of parliament, some attempting to pull the barricade down. A group threw bottles and firecrackers at police, who responded with baton charges.

Spanish daily newspaper El Pais reported on its website early Friday morning that 29 people had been injured, 14 of them police. A further 15 people were arrested, with parliament cancelling its session for the day.

In spite of this we still have people in all three major British parties calling for closer integration with Nazi Europe. So the only conclusion we can draw is the Conservatives, Labour and the Liberal Democrats want us to end up like Spain and Greece in the short term and in the long term become a province of the German pan - European empire.

There are elections next week, you know what you have to do. And ignore those Tory and Labour orchestrated attempts to discredit UKIP with unsubstantiated allegations about racism, they only show how worried the main parties are.

'Sorry': Spanish PM apologizes for corruption

via The Local

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy on Tuesday begged for forgiveness on behalf of the country's ruling Popular Party a day after police arrested several party members in anti-corruption raids.

"I ask for forgiveness in the name of the Popular Party (PP) from all Spaniards for having put people in positions of responsibility who weren't fit for them," said Rajoy in the national parliament.

"I hear and understand the frustration of the people," he added.

"This behaviour is particularly hurtful when the Spanish people have had to put up with so many sacrifices to get our country out of the economic crisis."

Rajoy's comments came after Spanish police on Monday made 37 arrests as part of an investigation into a kickbacks scheme in which politicians and public officials allegedly received illegal commissions from companies in return for political favours including the awarding of contracts for construction and infrastructure projects.

Among those targeted in the raids were Francisco Granados, the former number two in Madrid's PP as well as the party's head of the provincial authority of León, Marcos Martínez Barazón. Several Madrid mayors from the PP are also being investigated.

All have now had their PP membership suspended.

The arrests had made people mistrustful of politicians, said Rajoy on Tuesday, but he stressed that it was unfair to tar the vast majority of people in Spain's political parties with the same brush.

The prime minister was also keen to highlight that the prime motivation of those implicated in the kickbacks scandal was greed, and had nothing to do with illegal party funding.

Those assertion comes on the same day a former secretary general for the PP, Ángel Acebes, appeared in court as part of a long-running investigation into whether the party operated an illegal slush fund.

In 2013, former party treasurer Luis Bárcenas — currently in prison on charges related to another corruption case — alleged he used such a fund to make under-the-table payments to top party figures including Rajoy. The prime minister has repeatedly denied those claims. [ Continue reading ]

Eurodebt Threatens Portugal, Greece, Spain - Inflation Threatens Your Pocket

from Little Nicky Machiavelli

No good news this week. Then to cap it all today we hear the latest on inflation. Oh well that's goodbye o our savings, pensions and lifestyles.

Meanwhile Portugal looks set to become latest Eurozone member to be threatened by speculative attacks in the bond markets as borrowing costs soar

The European Central Bank (E.C.B.) has stepped in to the financial markets to buy Portuguese bonds on Thursday amid growing fears that the Eurozone's rolling crisis is about to claim its third victim.

Policymakers in Frankfurt intervened for the first time in three weeks as borrowing costs on Portugal's debt remained at a level that proved to be unsustainable for both Greece and Ireland.

Left Bloc, one of the smaller parties in Portugal's parliament, said on Thursday it would table a motion of no confidence in the minority socialist government.

There is a pattern emerging here. Oo - er we have a coalition government with a minority party whose members are not happy.

Roll on The New World Order.

Drop in UK inflation Is Not Good News

Spain parliament passes bill restricting protests

posted by Ed butt

One by one the lights are going out all over Europe - Sir Edward Grey
from PressTV The Spanish parliament has approved a highly contentious bill that puts major restrictions on citizens' right to protest. The Public Security Law, which was passed in a 181-141 vote on Thursday, limits protests to authorized rallies only.

The law also makes all unauthorized gatherings punishable by fines of up to 600,000 euros ($745,000).

The measure has been fiercely criticized by opposition politicians and activist groups. Several lawmakers tied up their mouths in protest as the bill was debated in the parliament. Opponents say the legislation violates the right to protest, limits freedom of expression and gives more power to police.

Spain has been hit by a wave of demonstrations and strikes over the past months against the government's austerity measures. Grappling with deep economic recession, Spain has adopted harsh austerity measures as part of attempts to deal with the dire situation. The country has been witnessing daily protests in recent years since the country’s economy collapsed into recession in the second half of 2008, taking millions of jobs with it.

How to stop Google tracking your every move
Do you ever get the feeling you are being watched or followed? OK, it could possibly be because you are paranoid but more likely you’ve noticed a few things that are just beyond creepy when you are using the web and particularly Google services. For example, has an advertisement for a product or service ever popped up on your screen just after you were talking to someone about it?

Men Menstruate? Latest Dickheadedness From The Legion Of The Dickless
Yes you read that headline right, the GayBLTQetc. lobby propagandists are now pushing the most preposterous idea yet in their determination to make unequal things equal. A colouring book aimed at children in the age range that use colouring books floats the idea that men can have periods.

Chemtrails Exposed - NASA has admitted weather modification experiments
We know that since World war Two ended governments have been engaged in experiments to control weather, they know we know, so why keep denying it. Repeated denials of projects like chemtrail spraying and HAARP have only spawned more, and more outlandish conspiracy theories. So what is going on?

Australian Aborigines and Eurasians Left Africa at the same time?
One of the internet memes propagated a broadcast by the Church Of Scienceology cult, those closed minded people who believe science is infallible omnipresent and omniescent is the "Weez Aalz From Afrireekaa" fallacy, so when I spotted online an article reporting a news study which, relying heavily on guesses and assumptions, made a case that all humans living outside Africa were put there by a mass migration between 50,000 and 60,000 years ago ...

EU punishes Turkey For Repairing Relations With NATO Public Enemy No1 Russia
Leaving aside the current spat between The Netherlands and Turkey which is a different thing altogether, The EU’s diplomatic service is currently trying to punish Turkey for seeking better relations with Russia, after their supporting different sides in the Syria conflict brought the two nations close to war. It is true that NATO member Turkey has recently shown less commitment to the West, but there are probably good reasons for this ...

Does It matter If The Dollar Is Replaced?
While mainstream media in the developed world continues to agonise over the Trump presidency, the rise of nationalism in Europe and the threat they pose to the global elite, important changes are happening within the strategic triangle of Russia, Iran and China, which has been engaged in economic manoeuvres to replace the US dollar as global reserve currency for a decade.

White Girl Is Burned Alive, 17 Black Gang Members Arrested. Mainstream Media Blanks The Story Remember how the Social Justice Warriors of the politically correct 'left' screamed when a young black man named Trayvon Martin was shot by Hispanic George Zimmerman, because it was assumed someone named Zimmerman would be white? Remember how they wailed and stirred up civil unrest when a black man was shot by white cops in Ferguson, Missouri, automatically assuming the the killing was racially motivated. more >>>

Things Are Getting crazier In USA As Trump Supporters Push Back Against Obamas Silent Coup

A congressional investigation has revealed that the Obama administration channeled billions of dollars to activist groups through a Department of Justice slush fund scheme. “It’s clear partisan politics played a role in the illicit actions that were made,” Republican Representative John Ratcliffe of Texas told Fox News. “The DOJ is the last place this should have occurred.” more >>>

Donald Trump Just Exposed Obama for HORRIBLE Crime! HERE IS THE PROOF!!
As the first scandal to hit the Trump Administration, the truped-up accusations that team members had contact with Russia was splashed over mainstream media, American liberals were quick to claim (dishonestly) that the Obama administration had been scandal free. The “scandal-free” Obama’s may finally have just been caught red-handed. This morning President Trump took to Twitter from the Mar-a-Lago resort to reveal a HORRIFYING crime committed by Barack Obama right before he left office: Political wiretapping!

Jacob Rothschild Says Putin “A Traitor To The New World Order”


Jacob Rothschild, patriarch of the megarich banking family, and a leading proponent of the drive to create a global authoritarian government made up of people drawn from the corporate and financial elite, has accused Russian president Vladimir Putin of being a "traitor to the New World Order".

Katie Hopkins Reports From Hellacious Sweden, ‘Where Females Fear to Tread’
A news feed filled with reports of the rape and assault of Sweden’s young women, some inexplicably streamed live on Facebook by the gang as they attacked. Other reports filed quietly away in a box marked unmentionable: the rape of a 12-year-old unaccompanied immigrant by a so called fellow 'unaccompanied minor' immigrant who later bragged he was 45.

Junk Food Killing Kids? We often hear about the plague of obesity from talking – head ‘nutrition experts’ on TV, but less is said about the other problem caused by a diet of junk food. On a typical teenager’s diet it is possible to develop both obesity and malnutrition. On the flip side, you have malnutrition. According to the United Nations (UN) special rapporteur, Hilal Elver, Ph.D., the impact of processed food on public health is “alarming.”

Report casts new doubts on WETC official story The controversy goes on, fifteen years later. While it ought to be obvious even to the most casual observer that the way the twin towers collapsed on 9/11 did not look as if it could be the result of a random strike (and Tower 7 was not hit by anything - well a careless sparrow maybe,) many people who should know better but are in awe of authority continue to scream conspiracy theorist at even those well qualified to challlence the official narrative.

Oslo Police Declare “We Have Lost the City”…Islam Has Taken Over
While attention has been focused on Sweden because of remarks made by US President Donald Trump, the apocalyptic level of culturally-enriched violence in neighbouring Norway and particularly in Grønland, a district of the capital city of Oslo.

Courts Quietly Confirm MMR Vaccine Causes Autism
After decades of passionate debate, parents probably missed the repeated admissions by drug companies and governments alike that vaccines do in fact cause autism. For concerned parents seeking the truth, it’s worth remembering that the exact same people who own the world’s drug companies also own America’s news outlets. Finding propaganda-free information has been difficult, until now.

The War On Cash Intensifies In Response To Trump and Brexit
It appears Europe is charging towards a cashless society. Just days after Davos’ elites discussed why the world needs to “get rid of currency,” the European Commission has introduced a proposal enforcing “restrictions on payments in cash.” – because only terrorists and drug-dealers need cash (nothing at all to do with totalitarian control over a nation’s wealth) – we are not surprised that this proposal from the European Commission would appear…

Soros Is Responsible for Europe's Immigration Crisis Says Hungary's Viktor Orban
With Britain's Conservative Government pressing ahead with a 'hard Brexit agenda, and the Trump administration setting abou demolishing the expressway to socialism Barack Obama had spent eight years contruction, there is a lot of speculation and precious little hard evidence to indicate where the globalist elite, having seen their ambition for a world government thwarted will go next.

The Reality Of Globalism - World Trade Has Increased By Less Than 1% Annually In The Last Decade
There can be little doubt that 2016 was the year the great pushback against globalisation and the push towards an authoritarian world government (NWO) really got off the ground.

World Bank Aims to Hand Over Seed Industry to Agribusiness
Today Donald Trump will be inaugurated as 45h President of The United States, his victory in the November election having been a major setback to those dark forces that give the impression only one more big push was needed to drive the world into accepting a global authoritarian government. Trump's victory, combined with 'Brexit' the vote by British citizens to leave the EU, combined to make 2026 a bad year for the globalists.

Oxford University wants to turn English into a sterilized Orwellian language
Oxford University, one of the oldest universities in the world and, one might think, the 'home' of the English language is now, it seems, engaged in a New World Order campaign to destroy the English Language.

I Was Right - Gravilty Does Not Exist

Well OK, saying gravity does not exist is a bit of an oversimplification, but there is strong evidence Isaac Newton's theory of what makes things fall to the ground, which does not attempt to explain how gravity makes things fall, but only states gravity is a natural force, really misunderstood what was going on.

France Falling Apart As The World Looks On
France will elect a new president in May 2017. Politicians are already campaigning and debating about deficits, welfare recipients, GDP growth, and so on, but they look like puppets disconnected from the real country. Violence. It is spreading. Not just terrorist attacks; pure gang violence. The media does not dare to say that this violence is coming mainly from Muslim gangs

The Internet Purge Of Politically Incorrect (aka truthful) Content Begins
Facebook, Google (owners of YouTube) and Microsoft have long been known as CIA collaborators and it has been acknowledged that Obama's move in divesting the US government of responsibility for ICANN allows The White House to make outraged noises about suppression of free speech while using Search Engine Operators as proxies to shut down anything challinging US and NATO propaganda (on the grounds no doubt that challenging the politically correct orthodoxy constitutes hate speech.)
