EU commission to outline plans for political union

BRUSSELS - The European Commission has said it will soon bring forward plans for an economic and political union it says is necessary for the creation of debt-mutualising eurobonds - one of the most controversial proposed solutions to the current eurozone crisis.
"We need to reflect what kind of European union would be required to deepen economic and political integration, for instance so that joint issuance of debt would make sense for all member states sharing the single currency," economics commissioner Olli Rehn told MEPs on Tuesday (22 May).

Obama’s plan to disarm America

Northeast Intelligence Network  
Pursuing the truth to preserve our nation

28 May 2012:  Slipping silently under the radar is an insidious plan by Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder and legislative globalists is a plan to disarm American citizens. The initial reaction of most  reasonable people in America would be to cry out “impossible!” and cite our right to possess firearms under the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.  That was my reaction as well, until I began a lengthy and complex investigation into the realm of the U.N., current U.S. leadership, and related non-governmental agencies (NGOs).  I was unprepared for what I discovered. The trail leading to ultimate global gun control that includes the U.S. is a long, twisted and arduous route that is not easily followed, but I’ll attempt to summarize my findings in a succinct and logical format.

Treaties in general

The E.U., Neofeudalism and the Neocolonial-Financialization Model

FINANCIAL SENSE


To fully understand the Eurozone's financial-debt crisis, we must dig through the artifice, obfuscation and propaganda to the real dynamics of Europe's "new feudalism," the Neocolonial-Financialization Model. 
Forget "austerity"and political theater—the only way to truly comprehend the Eurozone is to understand the Neocolonial-Financialization Model, as that's the key dynamic of the Eurozone.
In the old model of Colonialism, the colonizing power conquered or co-opted the Power Elites of the region, and proceeded to exploit the new colony's resources and labor to enrich the "center," i.e. the home empire.

Here’s the REAL DEAL NO BS Situation with Europe (Warning What Follows is EXTREMELY BAD).

ZeroHedge

Phoenix Capital Research's picture


The media is rife with misrepresentations and analysis of the EU. Here’s the real deal.

  1. The ECB is tapped out. Having provided over €1 trillion in funding via LTRO 1 and LTRO 2, taking on over €700 billion in PIIGS debt putting its own solvency at risk, it simply cannot launch another LTRO scheme for the following reasons:
    1. Those banks accepting LTRO funding are being punished by the market, thereby indicating that ECB funding is no financially toxic to a firm’s reputation in the market place
    2. The positive effects of LTRO 2 lasted only one month compared to several months for LTRO 1. Thus, we find that with each additional intervention the benefits are shorter lasting.
  1.  The Federal Reserve cannot step in. I know the blogosphere is rife with claims that the Fed will just print and print and print to save the day. The people writing these claims fail to see that:
    1. The last time the Fed printed (just $600 billion at that) food prices hit all time records and revolutions erupted around the world.
    2. Back home in the US the Fed came under massive political pressure forcing it to go on damage control mode (Bernanke’s town hall meetings and opening the Fed to Q&A sessions)
    3. This is an election year. The Fed has done all it can to support Obama’s re-election (for good reasons: Obama re-elected Bernanke and the GOP is targeting the Fed as a major issue). If the Fed launched some massive printing campaign, Obama will certainly lose.

THE FALL

By Sheriff Jim R. Schwiesow, Ret.
May 16, 2012
NewsWithViews.com

One can liken the days leading up to the pending collapse of this nation to an appointment with an endodontic for a root canal procedure, the time unto the appointment seemingly lapses with unnerving quickness while the horrific hour and a half in the chair grinds by for an ostensible eternity. Thus it is in regard to the final days of this nation that slip swiftly by in a run up to the pure hell that awaits; an ultimate frantic, terrifying, gut wrenching fall of a once proud republic.

“And I will dash them one against each other, the fathers and the sons, says the Lord. I will not pity or spare or have compassion, that I should not destroy them.” - Jeremiah 13:14

In the jagged ignorant minds of a lost people those terminal days will grind by in interminable agony. It will be a hell of a secular humanist making and a just retribution for the evolutionists, atheists, agnostics, sodomites, socialists, communists, and progressives who thumbed their noses at Almighty God and held His name in derision.

One can imagine that these dimwits will have in the last desperate days the boldness and unmitigated effrontery to invoke His name for delivery from the elements of destruction, but it will not be in sack cloth and ashes and with abject repentant humility that they approach, but for self preservation and a hope for a continued irreverent existence. Their arrogance will persist unto the final minute of the final hour of the final day, and then the end. Perhaps they will believe their god Obama and his demonic minions will save them; since by all appearances they revere him above the God of creation.

Just take a good look in the mirror and you will see the problem with America. It is not Obama, Bush, the “progressives,” or the government that is messing up this country.

It is us. It is the un-holy trinity of Me, Myself, and I that is responsible for America’s demise.
With all deference to Flip Wilson, it is not the Devil who made us do it. We give him waaay to much credit…the Devil that is. Most of the mess we find ourselves in is self-imposed. We did it to ourselves, or as I often tell our football players, we are our own worst enemy.

Heck, truth be told, most of us don’t need the Devil to mess us up. We do a good enough job of that ourselves. We love to give him the credit, but unfortunately we are ultimately the one’s responsible for our behavior. TheApostle Paul told us:

On the Relevance of Democracy

german-foreign-policy.com

ATHENS/BERLIN (Own report) - In the run-up to new elections in Greece, the German elite is discussing various scenarios involving the use of force to ensure control over Athens, including the establishment of a protectorate or the deployment of "protection forces" in that southern European country. The German austerity dictate, pushing Greece into destitution, is provoking growing popular resistance, which, apparently, can no longer be suppressed with democratic means. Berlin has failed in its efforts to force Athens into subordination by threatening to withdraw the Euro, as much as with its demand that Greece combines its parliamentary elections with a referendum on the question of remaining in the Euro zone. Berlin categorically rejects the option of retracting the austerity dictate and replacing it with stimulus programs, as is being demanded by leading economists world wide, even though the exclusion of Greece form the Euro zone threatens to push the currency, itself, into an abyss.

Notes for the Heartland Institute Conference Speech

ENGLISH PAGES, 22. 5. 2012
Many thanks for the invitation and for giving me the opportunity to address this distinguished audience. I am not for the first time in Chicago. It is also not for the first time that I am attending a conference organized by the Heartland Institute. But it is for the first time I am with Heartland here in Chicago.
Some of you know that I came to Chicago for the NATO summit. Yesterday and today I was supposed to speak about what to do in Afghanistan, how to keep NATO going in an era of overall indebtedness and budgetary cuts, and about NATO-Russia relations. I am glad to tell you that we did not discuss the global warming. It seems that NATO does not consider global warming to be a security threat. But my main preoccupation in the last days was NATO and I am afraid I am not sufficiently prepared to make a serious contribution to your conference. Let me make at least a few remarks I consider relevant now.

British Historian: Euro Crisis Creating a Federal Europe …

T
he euro crisis could quickly transform the European Union into a federal Europe, which is exactly what its designers planned, predicted British historian Niall Ferguson in an interview published in the Sunday Times on May 20 with the title “One Nation (Under Germany).”

“I am not a federalist,” said Ferguson. “But the costs of the single currency disintegrating are really so high and would impact so many people, that the only responsible thing for me to do is to argue urgently for the next step to a federal Europe. I see no alternative at the moment that isn’t a great deal worse.”

The Unraveling in Europe

FINANCIAL SENSE


How bad is the financial situation in Europe? Greece may be about to exit the eurozone, though not according to everyone. The Economic Times of India has published an interview with Jean Lemierre, the chief negotiator for private creditors in the Greece bailout. According to Lemierre, Greece has too much to lose and “a majority of political parties are in favor of the euro.” Yet the Boston Globe is reporting that Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann has warned Europe’s central banks not to increase their exposure to Greece” on account of political uncertainty. 

Is there really danger? For those who live in hope, and for those who cling to economic optimism, there is nothing to fear but fear itself. For those who understand the Leftward drift of Europe’s political economy, and the inevitable bankruptcy that implies, there is no uncertainty whatsoever. Bankruptcy is coming for everyone and Greece is merely first in line.

Wolfgang Schäuble gets the Charlemagne Prize today – the very prize that was awarded to Ted Heath. It is given for services in promoting European unification, and makes for an interesting development.

Despite claims that the eurozone crisis is reinforcing German power, we have a German finance minister at the heart of the crisis who, according to Deutsche Welle, is "passionate about Europe", and is committed to greater integration. The Franco-German alliance, we are told, is particularly important to him.

A matter of timing?

It is difficult to know with people like Peston whether they are being obtuse, or attempting to be Machiavellian. In a sense, though, it doesn't really matter. The effect is the same – they get it spectacularly wrong.

The error of the Great Peston, this time, is in candidly advising us that "creating the currency union was not a random act of collective economic suicide". Rather, he says, it was "in some senses a rational or even noble project that was either premature or too late". But, as we will see, this is more an error of omission.

Calling the single currency a "currency union" is odd – that is an unusual term, and it might give some insight into what passes for Peston's thinking. But his headline premise that the euro's survival "requires political union" is the one that grabs attention – as indeed was intended.

It looks like America is hosting an invasion. China is buying up bits and pieces of the country and announcing plans to create little Chinese settlements.

Looking back in history, the original Pilgrims that journeyed to America from Europe came here seeking a new way of life. They came to escape the tyranny of their former countries.

The Chinese Pilgrims, however, are not coming here to acclimatize themselves to our way of doing things – they have every intention of creating mini-Chinas all around the country. According to an article by Michael Snyder at Activist Post,

THE nation of Greece said sorry to the European Union with a present of an enormous wooden horse.



In theory these would still fit
Left outside the European Central Bank in the dead of night, the horse has now been moved into the ECB’s central lobby where it is proudly on display.
A gift tag attached to the horse, which is surprisingly light for its size and has small holes along the length of its body, suggested that it should be placed in the bank’s vaults overnight to avoid it being targeted by thieves.
Mario Draghi, President of the ECB, said: “How nice of the Greeks to acknowledge the trouble we’ve been put to on their behalf with this wonderful horse, handmade and so large it could hold a dozen double-decker buses.
“The card with it, which had a teddy bear dressed as a hobo on the front, explained that Greece made us this because they don’t have enough money for a present, which brought a tear to my eye.
“Nonetheless, unless they can somehow find €200 billion overnight then austerity measures must continue.”
Oddly, Greek representatives in Brussels have hinted that they may soon be in a position to settle their debts and have puzzled the French and German banks that hold their loans by asking if there is any discount for cash.
The government of Spain has reacted angrily to the gift, accusing the Greeks of trying to bribe the ECB and redoubling their own efforts to weave a gigantic sombrero-wearing straw donkey.

Cut the Gordian Knot.


Old Holborn



A problem that has been bubbling away for decades is finally about to reveal the true nature of the European "experiment". Desperate to acquire power and wealth after a century of fruitless wars, the German - Franco powers saw the European Union as the answer to the Commonwealth. Unlike the British Empire however, the European Project needed to be run by Socialists who could redistribute the wealth of a thousand years in return for unbridled power for themselves.

German Government Knew Euro Would Fail

May 16, 2012 | From theTrumpet.com
Newly released papers show the German government knew the euro would fail and lied to the Constitutional Court about it.
Former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl was warned that the euro was doomed to fail, according to secret documents obtained by Spiegel.
“Documents from the Kohl administration, kept confidential until now, indicate that the euro’s founding fathers were well aware of its deficits,” it wrote May 8.
The Trumpet has long warned that European leaders knew exactly what they were doing when they created the euro. The current crisis is not a mistake. They knew that, as Spiegel writes, “a common currency cannot survive on the long term if it is not backed by a political union.” They pushed ahead because they believed a common currency would force the unwilling European people to form a political union.

France's Strategy

By George Friedman
New political leaders do not invent new national strategies. Rather, they adapt enduring national strategies to the moment. On Tuesday, Francois Hollande will be inaugurated as France's president, and soon after taking the oath of office, he will visit German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin. At this moment, the talks are expected to be about austerity and the European Union, but the underlying issue remains constant: France's struggle for a dominant role in European affairs at a time of German ascendance.

Camouflage and Deception

german-foreign-policy.com

2012/05/11

BERLIN/PARIS
(Own report) - Using a deceptive strategy, Berlin seeks to ward off the French President-elect François Hollande's demand to put an end to the German austerity dictate. Other heads of EU member nations have begun to demand alongside Hollande that the EU return to credit financed stimulus programs, to prevent the complete collapse of several national economies, such as Greece is now confronting. Since the demise of the coalition government in the Netherlands, Berlin has found itself rather isolated and, alongside declarations of not allowing the EU zone to budge from its current austerity course, is resorting to methods to create confusion within the rebelling populations. The government is keeping "a placebo for the Euro partners" on hand, explains the press. The chancellor will most likely adopt some of the terminology used by François Hollande, but with her own interpretations. For example, she will speak of "promotion of growth," while meaning the imposition of "structural reforms," as envisaged by the austerity dictates. No new expenditures are planned. This is how the French growth offensive will be verbally ensnared, without having ceded an inch on the essence.

 The DSK Affair: One Year Later 



When Dominique Strauss-Kahn stepped out of the shower in his $3,000 a night suite at the Sofitel Hotel in New York one year ago May 14, he was fully on track to become the next President of France. As head of the International Monetary Fund he was now on his way meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel with a secret plan to avert the Greek default. He was nearly 20 points ahead of his rival President Nicolas Sarkozy in the public opinion polls. He had planned to announce his candidacy on June 15th, he told me when I interviewed him last month. He was confident, perhaps overconfident, he could not be stopped, expecting to be nominated by his Socialist Party, and then defeat Sarkozy.

Some of us have been talking it over, and here’s what we think the end game looks like:
1. Greek euro exit, very possibly next month.
2. Huge withdrawals from Spanish and Italian banks, as depositors try to move their money to Germany.
3a. Maybe, just possibly, de facto controls, with banks forbidden to transfer deposits out of country and limits on cash withdrawals.
3b. Alternatively, or maybe in tandem, huge draws on ECB credit to keep the banks from collapsing.
4a. Germany has a choice. Accept huge indirect public claims on Italy and Spain, plus a drastic revision of strategy — basically, to give Spain in particular any hope you need both guarantees on its debt to hold borrowing costs down and a higher eurozone inflation target to make relative price adjustment possible; or:
4b. End of the euro.
And we’re talking about months, not years, for this to play out.

A Bumpy Ride


FINANCIAL SENSE
05/14/2012
We are facing a potentially rough time ahead. The European financial crisis goes from bad to worse. We now learn that JPMorgan has losses of $2 billion. But heavier losses are bound to hit Europe as the French have elected a socialist president who proposes to raise the top marginal tax rate to 75 percent. There are many ways to commit suicide, of course. If the financial news is bad, the prospects for overall international stability look even worse. Military conflict is being threatened in several places; and this necessarily adds a further element of uncertainty.

Séisme politique en Grèce : les enseignements pour la France

 http://1.1.1.3/bmi/www.rivarol.com/Billet_files/Sans%20titre-1.png
 “Quand les peuples cessent d’estimer, ils cessent d’obéir”

La Grèce a connu dimanche 6 mai un véritable séisme lors des élections législatives qui ont explosé les deux partis favorables à l’Union européenne et soutenant la politique d’austérité. Traditionnellement, le Pasok socialiste et le parti conservateur Nouvelle Démocratie dominent totalement la vie politique grecque. Ces partis fonctionnent sur le mode du clientélisme, fidélisant de génération en génération des obligés à qui ils procurent des avantages divers, dont des emplois. C’était particulièrement le cas du Pasok qui avait su s’attacher des fidélités d’intérêt, y compris chez des électeurs nationalistes. Les deux partis du système viennent de s’effondrer, perdant plus de la moitié de leurs électeurs. La Nouvelle Démocratie obtient 18,87 % des suffrages (108 députés) et le Parti socialiste implose à 13,19 % (41 députés), rendant quasi impossible la constitution d’un gouvernement stable. L’extrême gauche radicale, le parti Syriza, l’équivalent du parti de Mélenchon, est le grand vainqueur de ces élections avec 16,77 % des voix et 52 députés. Précisons que cette extrêmegauche stalinienne est bien plus virulente que celle qui sévit en France. C’est dire... Un nouveau parti de dissidents de droite, leparti des Grecs indépendants, a obtenu près de 11 % des voix et 33 députés. Mais le vainqueur, à droite, qui suscite l’émoi, est le parti Chryssi Avghi (Aube dorée), présenté comme néo-nazi, qui obtient 7 % des suffrages et 21 députés. « Notre idéologie vient de notre passé glorieux, qui va de l’Antiquité à la Byzance grecque, au général Metaxas », déclare un de ses dirigeants, se référant aussi au régime des colonels qui avait gouverné le pays de 1967 à 1974. Le dictateur Metaxas avait dirigé la Grèce de 1936 à 1941 et s’était opposé à son invasion par l’Italie fasciste. La mémoire de Georges Papadopoulos, principal figure du régime des colonels, est souvent acclamée dans les meetings par la foule qui cande :« Sang, honneur,aube dorée ! » Dans un des journaux du parti, on voit la photo de Papadopoulos, juste en-dessous d’un portrait d’Adolf Hitler... Le fondateur du parti, Nikos Michaloliakos s’était, quant à lui, fait remarquer par un salut nazi au conseil municipal d’Athènes, où il avait été élu en novembre 2010.

The Fraud Of Austerity


Denial is leading to collective economic suicide in Europe and the United States. The French elected a socialist president who wants to raise taxes on those elusive rich and keep spending as if there is no tomorrow.

Many on the left, including European socialists in tandem with the New York Times and its economist Paul Krugman, are falsely claiming that Europe and even the United States are being saddled with "austerity." Their claim is that governments are not spending enough to reduce unemployment. They want higher taxes on the most productive plus bigger government.

Grèce : plus dure sera la chute

LE BLOGUE DE YANN REDEKKER

Athenes_crise

Bruno Gollnisch l’a constaté comme beaucoup, pendant la campagne présidentielle un consensus muet s’est établi dans les médias et chez les deux principaux candidats du Système pour ne pas parler DU sujet qui fâche, en l’occurrence de la pérennité de la zone euro, plus que jamais menacée. Il s’agissait aussi de ne pas donner du grain à moudre à ceux qui, comme au Front National, sont classés dans le camp des eurosceptiques, à ceux qui doutent légitimement de la viabilité de la construction bruxelloise sous sa forme actuelle. Or la terre n’a pas arrêté de tourner ces derniers mois. La dégradation de la situation de la Grèce que nous avions annoncée, relayant ici les analyses de nombreux économistes, s’est matérialisée brusquement avec le résultat des élections législatives dimanche.

Les deux partis dominants à la Vouli, (le Parlement grec) et qui se partagent tous les pouvoirs depuis quarante ans (ça ne vous rappelle rien ?) , les conservateurs de Nouvelle Démocratie et les socialistes du Pasok, ont vu le cumul de leur score s’effondrer , passant de 77% des voix aux élections de 2009 à un petit 32%.

UN Plan for Sustainability and Green World Government in Rio Next Month: Green World Communism

Euro-med                        

Euromediterranien - Euromediterranean - Euromediterranien        

Summary: Next month, a conference with probably far-reaching consequences for mankind will be held in Rio de Janeiro. It involves the introduction of the green one world communist government under the name of Agenda 21 - which I’ve written about several times. The core of the ideology behind it is sustainability, defined in the Brundtland Report in 1987 as follows: “Development that meets present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”. Behind it are 36 global organizations. That sounds good - but do we want to pay the price for this Soviet-utopia?
This world government is now in the making  since the Rio Conference in 1992 I and is to be completed in Rio. Central to it is Rothschild’s Global Environmental Facility (GEF), which has the task of channeling our money into the pockets of the big banks and the politicians around the world – and a small part for the poor of the never-developed countries, as a compensation for an alleged non-existing manmade global warming.
With the approval of 182 countries, Rothschild can now collect an increasing part of the earth with its natural resources as forfeited collaterals  from endebted countries. The GEF partnership includes 10 agencies: the UN Development Programme; the UN Environment Programme; the World Bank; the UN Food and Agriculture Organization; the UN Industrial Development Organization; the African Development Bank; the Asian Development Bank; the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development; the Inter-American Development Bank; and the International Fund for Agricultural Development. The Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel provides technical and scientific advice on the GEF’s policies and projects.
In a recently published report, entitled “Working Towards a Balanced and Inclusive Green Economy: A United Nations System-wide Perspective,” the global transformation agenda was designed. The main motive is a communist redistribution of the prosperity of the world – 2.1 Billionen Dollars a year - from the productive to the unproductive world - presumably to the Muslim countries in particular - under the name of globalisation.

The Significance of Russia’s Threats on Missile Defense

One of the touchiest subjects in the U.S.-Russia relationship just got touchier.

As Vladimir Putin returns to the Kremlin, exuding more swagger than ever before, it’s becoming clearer that Russia has shifted into a new, higher gear in its quest to rebuild the old Soviet power bloc.
In an especially bold statement just days before Putin’s rule became official once again, Russia’s top soldier said that if Washington forges ahead with plans to build missile defense facilities in Eastern Europe, Russia will destroy the posts with a preemptive strike.

How the euro zone will try to bring Greece back into line


The Peterson Institute’s Jacob Funk Kirkegaard — who I’m hoping will let me call him J. Funk — games out how the euro zone is likely to respond to the recent elections in Greece:
When faced with this type of electoral upset in small member states, the EU has historically adopted two distinct response strategies, one aimed at voters and the other aimed at recalcitrant political leaders.

The first strategy was employed in 2009 when the Irish first rejected the Lisbon Treaty reforming the European Union. Subsequently, when a few meaningless revisions were added to the Treaty, the Irish voters adopted it in a second referendum. It was the threat of economic and political isolation that persuaded them to change their mind.

The second strategy unfolded at Cannes last year. It was then that the EU threatened Greek political leaders with economic ruin (in the form of a euro exit) in order to force them to rethink their response.

Both these strategies were designed to overcome member state democratic processes and get to the “right answer” for the European Union as a whole.
And if that fails? “It would be reckless to force Greece out without adopting the type of 10-year plan for euro area integration called for by Mario Draghi, the ECB president, including steps like a banking union and a road map toward eurobonds and a common fiscal policy,” writes J. Funk.
