Amnesty International: “US & allies war of annihilation” in Raqqa, Syria had devastating toll on civilians.

Note: The direct link to the Amnesty report contained in this post is at the time of writing blocked by the EU and hidden by search engine filters elsewhere. People who think internet censorship is a conspiracy theory please take that on board.

The four-month military operation carried out by the US-led Coalition to oust the Islamic State from Raqqa (Syria), killed hundreds of civilians, injured many more and destroyed much of the city. This report from human rights group Amnesty International documents the experiences of four families whose cases are emblematic of wider patterns. Eight months on, the Coalition remains in denial about the human tragedy resulting from its military campaign.

Amnesty International is urging Coalition members to promptly and impartially investigate allegations of international law violations and civilian casualties, and to provide reparation to the victims and adequate assistance for the desperately needed demining and reconstruction work.

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 parties it would not be a surprise to see AfD outperform their polling numbers on Sunday.

How Many Times Can Lame Duck Merkel Regenerate Her Government?

Dr Merkel-who

This week the new series of Doctor Who launched amid much ballyhoo about the mysterious Doctor being played for the first time by a woman. While many pedantic Whovians (or whatever they call themselves,) are appalled and complain that the lead role belongs to a man, in my not so humble opinion Jodie Whittaker (best know to date for Broadchurch,) the thirteenth Doctor Who, looks as if she may be the best Doctor since David Tennant. She brought to the role a sense of fun which has been missing since Tennant. Both Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi, the two most recently transformed Doctors in what has become a long line of regenerated Doctors are excellent actors, but somehow lacked the charisma to carry off a role that needs to be played with an attitude of, “I know this story is bollocks, but it’s not meant to be taken seriously so let’s have fun.” What has this to do with angela Merkel and Germany? you might well ask. Indulge me, all will become clear.

In the past few years the show had come over all politically correct and disappeared up its own arse. Another field of human endeavour that was in the past a lot of fun but has now fallen into the trap of taking itself too seriously is politics. Take Germany for example. Germans have always been a bit prone to taking silly things seriously. That Master race nonsense a few decades ago is a case in point. Germany was the most prosperous and stable democracy in Europe under Hausfrau – Volksfuhrer Merkel until she won her third term as Chanellor. That victory had the same effect as being declared divine once had on Roman Emperors. Merkel began to believe her own publicity, and thought she could change the world by supporting schemes to unite Europe under a single government and flood the continent with third world migrants (aka cheap labour for Germany’s factories). And she believed she could succeed because Germans, the ignorant masses, would march in lockstep behind her.

And that’s when it all started to go wrong. Uncontrolled immigration caused social and economic problems, while Merkel’s popularity slumped so much that in the wake of the inconclusive election of September 2017 her conservative CDU party was forced into a coalition with their traditional rivals the socialist SPD to keep nationalist and Eurosceptic parties out of power. Yet Merkel, who had looked dead in the water, is still afloat, her political career having undergone more regenerations that Doctor Who.

Earlier this year, Merkel managed to avoid a potentially disastrous second election by finally, six months after the election, getting the Social Democrats (SPD) to sign up to a mutual suicide pact in the form of new Grand Coalition. This ensured cartel-style government of the political and business elites reigns in Germany to do the bidding the European Union and march towards political and financial integration which fewer and fewer Germans support.

The results of Merkel’ desperatly clinging to power have been catastrophic for the former dominant parties of Germany. The Social Democrats (SDP)  is spiralling towards minor party status, with recent polling now putting them behind five-year old Alternative for Germany (AfD) nationally, 16% vs. 18.5% in a recent poll by Die Welt. Worse news for the SDP is that the classical liberal Free Democrats are gaining ground on them too.

But, it’s not just the SPD that continues to hemorrhage support. Merkel’s own Christian Democratic Union (CDU) is now below 25% nationally, since its coalition with the Christian Social Union (CSU) now has the support from less than 30% of Germans nationally.

The sister party of Merkel’s CDU, the CSU, which is a regional party operating only in Bravaria,  is usually good for around 8-9% of that total, but their support in Bavaria is down below 40%, dropping to 35% as of last month’s poll numbers. So, only a week before Bavarian state elections, all the traditional parties are seeing their bases eroding.

The CDU are aware Merkel is a lame duck, having nailed her colours to the mast or a raft of deeply unpopular globalist policies, the only thing keeping her in power at this point is that there is little confidence among German voters that a new election would solve the problem, while the one thing Merkel has succeeded in throughout her decline is stabbing potential rivals in the back.

The AfD, not a far right party as mainstream media always claim, but centre – right party that rejects globalism and concepts such as multiculturalism and a borderless world, are not ready for government while the pro – business Free Democrats are natural coalition partners but not coalition leaders. One of the problems for the AfD is that since the ninteen thirties, nationalism has ben increasingly conflated with National Socialism. People who compare AfD, Britain’s UKIP, the Sweden Democrats, the Freedom Party in The Netherlands and France’s Front National and Italy’s ruling coalition to Hitler’s Nazis or Mussolini’s Fascists are poorly informed. Nationalism is not authoritarianism. Mohandas K Gandhi was a nationalist, as were Guiseppe Garibaldi, Mustafa Kemal, Charles de Gaulle and Irish republican leader Eammon de Valera. The politics of these leaders ranges from conservative to democratic socialist.

I have closely watched developments in German politics for some years, just as I have watched developments in other EU nations, having anticipated the break up of the community since I worked in the EU Commission in Luxembourg in the 1980s and learned that the long term plan was political integration and the creation of a European Superstate. It was never going to work of course, the only surprise has been that the reassertion of national independence took so long. But what has become clear recently is that the poll numbers for opposition parties like AfD are under-stated because of real fear of political retribution, and allegedly because of electoral jiggery – pokery. For example, in the recent Swedish election, anti – immigration, Eurosceptic party The Sweden Democrats (SDs) slightly under performed against expectations. In the run up to the election Swedish mainstream media and government figures mounted a massive smear campaign against the SDs, branding them Nazis and racists.

After the election, even though the SDs had come from nowhere to be the third largest party and justifiably claim a place in the governing coalition. This was resisted by the undemocratic parties of the left, and now Sweden faces months of political haggling without a legitimate government just as Germany did because Angela Merkel refused to accept the inevitable.

 

While all this is going on, democracy is under attack on other fronts.  Germany’s anti-hate speech laws are being used to arrest people for being politically incorrect, while the far left directors of US internet giants such as Google and Facebook are meddling in political matters having appointed themselves censors of news and opinions that does not suit their cultural Marxist agenda. From last year’s GDPR, an attack on free speech disguised as a measure to protect users’ privacy, to the latest rules on sharing memes, the clamp down on speech critical of the political status quo in Europe is happening quickly not just in Germany but across the EU. Even in Britain, where we are on the way out of the EU, these rules are being applied to suppress voices critical of Islam, government immigration policies and telling the truth about immigrant crimes.

How is this affecting the polls? We have seen the reults for ourselves, in the brexir refrendum, in Sweden, Germany, Italy, Poland, Austria and to a lesser extent in other EU member states that have held elections recently. Watch an interview like this one . with a German voter and we have to wonder if there are masses of ‘closet AfD voters’ there are in Germany like there were ‘closet Trump voters’ in the U.S. in 2016 or Brexit voters in the UK referendum?

Being branded racist or xenophobic or an ignorant, uneducated working class oik might not directly put people off holding their opinions, but the sheer nastiness, and sometimes the violence with which supporters of the left respond on finding somebody does not agree with their ideology driven authoritarian agenda can have a very real deterrent affect.

No major national elections are due for a while, but if significant numbers in Bravaria turn out to vote AfD and cause an upset in Bavaria’s state elections on the October 14th that could be the catalyst to nudge AfD forward nationally to seriously challenge Merkel’s own CDU in the polls.

This plays in to the unfolding political crisis in the democratic world that after Trump and Brexit, Merkel’s decline in Germany and victory for the anti – EU coalition in Italy isn’t on the horizon anymore. It is here, throughout the liberal democracies the old elites are on the back foot, the banking cartel and the domiation of the petrodollar are being challenged, political parties that differ only in name, while toeing the globalist line on policy are in decline, and after the failure of the US /NATO allies to dislodge Assad in Syria, the military – industrial complex can no longer use scaremongering to swing public opinion behind regional wars and regime change campaigns.

France: Shock resignations and ‘chaos’ threaten Macron government.

Emmanuel Macron, the man who, in the biggest political stitch up since Hitler grabbed power in 1933, came from nowhere to be shoehorned into the French presidency, is now, less than two years after triumphantly proclaiming he would rule “in the style of a Roman God, finds himself desperately clinging to power as his government falls apart. Following the shock resignation of his steadfastly loyal interior minister Gerard Collomb, which could cripple the second phase of the unceasingly unpopular Macron’s plan to transform France into a one party state, the French President looks very much like a lame duck.

The shock resignation of Mr Collomb, Mr Macron’s most senior cabinet member, hot on the heels of several other senior officials handing in their resignations, poses a fresh dilemma for the president – whether to replace him or use it as an opportunity to reshuffle his team.

The resignation itself was not entirely shocking: Colomb has been making his dissatisfaction with Macron known for some time, but it was the way it was handled and the subsequent mockery of Mr Macron’s leadership style that gave the French President yet another problematic month.

Despite Mr Macron pleading with Mr Collomb not to leave and shockingly refusing to accept his notice, he left anyway and spoke of his desire to leave Mr Macron’s cabinet “as soon as possible”.

The very act of speaking to the French media is considered a debacle in itself, as Mr Macron has banned any member of his team from doing so without his permission.

That, teamed with his meticulous leadership style, which caused the French media to nickname him the “manager-President” due to him interfering in minuscule matters, 2am texts and colour-coordinating his timetable in a manner similar to a student approaching exam week has resulted in his popularity taking a nose-dive by 30 percent.

Mr Collomb is not the only addition to Mr Macron’s cabinet that resigned just 18 months into his presidency. Other officials in Mr Macron’s team who have stepped down include defence minister Sylvie Goulard and former party chief Richard Ferrand to name a few.

French Environment Minister Nicolas Hulot was another who quit, citing huge differences with Mr Macron as his reason, as he added: “I can’t lie to myself anymore”

So much for governing in style of a Roman God. If Macron had a proper education instead of that STEM bollocks that passes for education these days, he’d know that Roman Emperors were declared gods shortly before they were stabbed in the back.

Perhaps Angela Merkel thought we didn’t yet know how full of it she is. Perhaps that’s why she said yesterday with regards to Europe’s refugee crisis that “Everything must move quickly,” only to call an EU meeting a full two weeks later. That announcement show one thing: Merkel doesn’t see this as a crisis. If she did, she would have called for such a meeting a long time ago, and not some point far into the future.

A Profound Danger To The Dollar’s Reserve Status?

This blog and our larger sibling The Daly Stirrer have since 2012 been following moves in the international community, led by Russia and China to replace the US dollar as the global reserve currency, a status that has prevailed since 1974 when the USA concluded an agreement with Saudi Arabia, then totally dominant as the world’s largest oil producer, that all oil trades would be carried out in dollars – this was the birth of the petrodollar.

This agreement has since then given the USA a huge advantage over its trading partners, but the balance of power in the world has shifted with the break up of the Soviet Union, the liberalisation of China and the emergence of China as an economic power and of Russia as a major supplier of oil and gas.

Sweden Vote: International Election Observer ‘Shocked’, ‘Never Seen Such an Undemocratic System’

Translated from Danish news site Berlinske

The first time a Swedish election has been monitored by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), observers have expressed “shock” at the nation’s “undemocratic” system.

Danish delegate Michael Aastrup Jensen, who has previously monitored elections in Russia and Eastern Europe, told Berlinske: “In all the many election observations I’ve been on, I have not seen anything that comes close to how undemocratic the Swedish voting system is.”

The foreign policy spokesman for Denmark’s liberal governing party Venstre, Jensen said the major issue with the Swedish election system is the lack of privacy for citizens casting their ballot.

Separate parties have separate ballot papers in Sweden, the choosing of which takes place in public, as voters must select their preferred ballot papers before placing them into a ballot box.

“It is just so far beneath anything remotely resembling European election standards, or anything we would allow even in Eastern Europe,” he said.

Jensen told the Danish newspaper how, outside of official monitoring duties, he visited a number of polling places in Malmö to see, ‘with his own eyes’, voting take place, and found “party soldiers” standing in front of the stations, where they were trying to hand voters ballot papers for their respective parties.

As chairman of Denmark’s delegation to the Council of Europe, the organisation responsible for the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), Jensen hopes to bring attention to problems with the Swedish election system.

“I will highlight the issue with the Council of Europe so that we can hopefully send the strongest possible signals to Sweden that they should introduce the sort of rules seen in Denmark and in virtually every other country in the world,” he said.

Speaking on the outcome of the Swedish election, which saw the worst result in 100 years for the ruling Social Democrats, the Danish foreign minister also hit out at the refusal of mainstream parties to cooperate in any way with the populist Sweden Democrats, which this year secured its largest ever share of the vote.

Russia Accuses US Of White Phosphorus Attack In Syria

Completely unsubstantiated allegations to the effect that President Assad of Syria has already authorised the use of illegal weapons (poison gas) in the coming assault on Idlib, continue to proliferate in western media (the fake news industry,) and are repeated by talking heads on TV and radio. Idlib province in north west Syria borders Turkey and is the last stronghold of the ISIS / Al Nusra rebels who, armed, trained and funded by Washington and its NATO allies and The Kingdom Of Saudi Arabia, have been trying to ovrthrow the Assad regime for the past four years. In a last desperate attempt by the US Deep State to prevent the total defeat of it’s proxy war on Russia and Iran, the US appears to be trying once more to justify direct intervention in the Syrian war.

Unfortunately all the previous allegations of illegal weapons use by the Assad regime, made by Trump and his predecessor, the mass murderer and war criminal Barack Hussein Obama, have been proved to be false flag events or simply fake news.

President Trump has threatened Syrian and Russian forces currently preparing to take back the terrorist-controlled stronghold in northwestern Syria, potentially bringing the world to the brink of World War III, because Russian President Vladimir Putin has previously demonstrated he will not allow Assad to fall. But Trump’s tweets about the potential “humanitarian catastrophe” and what the US response might be have exposed a guiding principle of the US’s involvement in Syria (and indeed across the Middle East): Use of illegal weapons attack is only a humanitarian “catastrophe” if it’s carried out by opponents of US geopolitical hegemony.

In what Russian officials have been warning of since mid August, Washington officials are already blaming Assad for an attack that has not taken place yet. Russia’s foreign ministry has claimed several times its sources in Syria knew  another US-approved false flag attack was being prepared to justify direct military action.

Today we learn from independent sources that on Saturday US F15 jets reportedly dropped white phosphorus (an illegal weapon,) on Hajin, a Syrian town in the Deir Ez-Zor province. When it comes in contact with oxygen, white phosphorus can cause massive fires. Because of this, it’s banned by the Geneva Convention for use in combat. Russian officials said they’re still waiting for information on casualties.

Here’s more from RT:

Two F-15 jets on Saturday bombed the town of Hajin with white phosphorus incendiary munitions, banned under the Geneva Convention, according to the Russian Center for Reconciliation in Syria.

“Following the strikes, large fires were observed in the area,” Lieutenant-General Vladimir Savchenko said Sunday. There’s still no information on casualties caused by the bombing run, he added.

The US promptly denied responsibility for the attack and expects the world to believe its denials. Yet when Washington accuses Syria or Russia of war crimes, their denials are met with derision. Well we would be foolish to believe without question anything Russia or the Assad government said, which is who independent inspectors from the Organisation for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons hve visited sites of alleged chemical weapon attacks and found no evidence to link the assad regime to the use of poison gas.

A Pentagon spokesperson denied the allegations of dropping white phosphorus bombs. “At this time, we have not received any reports of any use of white phosphorous,” Commander Sean Robertson told the media on Sunday. “None of the military units in the area are even equipped with white phosphorous munitions of any kind.”

Despite these outraged denials by US military and Department of Defense officials, photos of the attack have emerged on social media. Note the bright white flames of the incendiary mareial, an indicator that the substance is phosphorous :

Islamic State still controls a pocket of territory in Deir Ezzor between the Euphrates River and the Iraqi border, and also has scattered bases across Syrian’s eastern desert desert. The use of any incendiary munitions in populated civilian areas was banned by Protocol III of the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons, which the US signed the protocol back in 2009.
