Germany Grabs Control Of The EU?

Today Germany has takenm over the presidency of the Council of the European Union. No big deal, Europe watchers among you might well say — the Presidency rotates every six months between the EU’s member states. The Council of the European Union is not the same as the European Council or the Council of Europe (confused? Wait ’til someone tries to explain why the EU has to have three presidents).

So to step daintily out of the mire that is EU politics, Germany’s turn to be the boss is wholly expected, yet in the current circumstances there is something symbolic about this particular rotation — because the the EU’s biggest and most economically popwerful member is now dominant in all branches of the EU’s opaque administration. Ursula von der Leyen, a protege of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s and former member of Merkel’s government, has the top job: President of the European Commission. In formal terms, she’s the first German in the post since the 1960s. Another Merkel disciple, Martin Selmayr, is General Secretary (i.e. CEO) of the commission. David Sassoli, the Italian president of the European Parliament was put in his position by the support of the European Parliament’s largest grouping, The European People’s Party, which is dominate by the German CDO, Angela Merkel’s party, although Hausfrau Volksfuhrer Merkel does not lead now after a number of election setbacks. In effect Sassoli was Merkel’s preferred candidate.

The presidency of The Council Of Europe (did I mention this is not the same thing as the Council of The European Union?) also passes to each member state in turn and need not concern us unless the turn of the pariah among European leaders, Hungary’s Victor Orban is due soon.

Von der Leyen got the European Commission job because she was the nominee of  European People’s Party (i.e. Chancellor Merkel’s anointed candidate). Ironically, the European people were given no direct say in her elevation; but she had her old boss’s backing, which is what counts.

The reality of the EU can no longer be denied. It is not a union of 27 nations. It is Germany plus 26 satellite states. Even the European Federal Superstate idealists  can no longer credibly deny the evidence.

Merkel, though born in Hamburg, grew up and was educated under the brutally authoritarian communist regime of East Germany. Indoctrinated with Marxist ideology from an early age, she would have us believe she underwent a Damascene conversion to Western Democratic values as the notorious wall fell? Or is she an unrepentant, authoritarian, dogmatic, control freak, poisoned by her upbringing ?

For example how did the German Emissions Scandal/Dieselgate, one of the most sensational frauds in History, take place on her Watch? Were she and her government completely unaware that Germany’s world beating car makers had been conspiring to deceive the the world and pass off the dirtiest fuel available as the cleanest?

Perhaps we should give her the benefit of the doubt, but regardless, it has blown the concept of the Good German, so assiduously nurtured since 1955, clean out of the water. Germany is off on another master race trip as a friend of my family who had worked extensively in Germany predicted in the 1960s they would. Europe is facing a terrible dilemma, as it witnesses the emergence of the nascent Fourth Reich.

What will be interesting now is how the relationship between France and Germany will develop. For decades these nations have collaborated to dominate EU policy and ensure Britain was marginalised. The Germans have always wanted to run Europe and dominating the EU is clearly better than sending jack booted troops in to capital cities.

France does not want to run Europe so long as it is run in a way that does not inconvenience France. To date the Germans have been happy to let France do whatever it likes regardless of any EU rules which might get in the way. But the French will not be happy about ceding control to Germany.

The weaker member states used to look to UK to be the thorn in the side of the Franco – German nexus and lament us leaving them totally at its mercy now. The Germans were upset with us leaving as we were a net contributor to the budget and without us that who else will help bail out southern Europe’s economic basket cases. Chancellor Merkel might gamble on control being worth that price but German taxpayer’s are not, and with Merkel’s coalition government having no majority in the Bundestag, the Chancellor and her party are vulnerable in any crisis.

With the Coronavirus crisis piling on the agony, and the Eurozone economy, already in crisis before the pandemic hit, it is only a matter of time before the house of cards collapses in on itself. The more political and economic distance between UK and the EU when that happens the better. Boris had better stick to his promise of no extension to the transition period and get us out at the earliest possible moment.

Germany Rejects Yazidi Asylum Seekers Fleeing Persecution By Islamic Extremists

A Week Before Election 30% Of German Voters Still Undecided

Lockdown: Snivelling Ninny Party MPs and Fascist Officials Demand We All Stay Locked Up Forever.

As British people spntaneouly rejected the continuing – and now known to be totally unnecessary lockdown rules the usual pack of snivelling ninnies who live in fear of absolutely everything and hold an unshakable belief that anybody who does not share their cringing, cowardly lifestyle poses a personal threat to us all to crawl out of the woodwork and start whining.

MPs belonging to the Snivelling Ninnies party in parliament have called on ocal councils in towns with attractive beaches must adopt Spanish-style booking systems on British beaches to better deal with crowds and avoid the chaotic scenes that unfolded last week, MPs have said.

“Oh look at all these stupid irresponsible people flouting regulations, they must be forced to remain under house arrest or we will all die of a very minor illness,” they snivel. “Why can’t we be like Spain where the beaches are empty,” they whine. It does not occour to these hald wits as they indullge in orgies of wailing and gnashing teeth that the reason Spanish beaches are empty is the British, German, French, Dutch, Swedish, Danish and other nationality holiday makers  who would normally be packing onto those beaches right now just cannot get there. It is not practical to go Spain but we can drive to Bournmouth, Blackpool, Torquay or Scarborough. Once the tourists turn up with their money those Spanish towns will have their beaches and their till open to welcome all comers with a loud Ker – ching.

This bid to extend lockdown for no good reason came as some Government medical advisers suggested that large gatherings on beaches were actually safer than remaining indoors, and may not be “a great danger.”

One said: “They’re all outdoors and if every one of those groups is a family then what’s the worry?”

A major incident was declared in Bournemouth,  Dorset, on Thursday after about half a million people ignored social distancing rules (they obviously read alt_media news and know it doesn’t work,) to flock to the beach. Traffic on main roads tailed back for miles, drunken fights broke out and more than 40 tonnes of rubbish was strewn across the sand. Three people were stabbed and eight were arrested.

The chaos triggered an extraordinary blame game as Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council weere slammed by MPs and community groups for failing to predict the influx and take preventative action.

We not that out of all these whining left wing idiot voices not one was raised in protest about the Black Lives Matter disorder in which social distancing was ignored as “peaceful protestors burned cars and destroyed property. But then hypocrisy has always been the core value of left wing politics.

Half a million people descended on the town

The snivellers are also whining about crowds of Liverpool football club supporters gathering in the city to celebrate their team winning the Premier League. Why? WTF is it to do with anybody if these people, who are aware of the very low risk (almost zero) of an asyptomatic person at an outdoor gathering passing on the virus.

If people are that scared of the virus let them adopt reclusive livestyles, isolated from all human contact. There is not jusification for trying to impose such misery on all of us.

Final word: For over a hundred years now it has been accepted medical wisdom that for a specific pathogen to be considered the sole cause of a disease it must meet all items in a set of criteria known as the Koch postulates. COVID-19 does not meet all of these, in fact it meets none. So technically the disease does not exist. What are you all afraid of? Catching a cold.

In A Corporatist System Of Government, Corporate Censorship Is State Censorship

Total Surveillance: Contact-tracing app will be ‘key part’ of UK government’s Covid-19 ‘surveillance programme’

Contact-tracing app will be ‘key part’ of UK government’s Covid-19 ‘surveillance programme’ – Johnson spokesman
Picture (c) Olivier Douliery, AFP
The hugely unpopular NHS contact-tracing app proposal, which as libertarians point out will giver the government the power to track all our movements, will be a “key part” of the U.K. government’s Covid-19 containment policy for the foreseeable future, a spokesman for the Prime Minister’s office has confirmed.

The app, designed ostensibly to notify smartphone users if they came into close contact with someone who had tested positive for the coronavirus, could be available within a few weeks,  but privacy campaigners warn that the app,  which will give the government and its agencies, including the police who have shown their willingness to abuse their new powers, the ability to record and store the complete movements of individuals and details of those with whom they were in contact.

If the plan goes through unchallenged, and Boris Jognson’s recent conversion to the kind of authoritarian approach wannabe Galactic Emperor Bill Gates has lobbied for suggests it will, the public will be “coerced” into sharing personal data about their movements, personal liberty activists fear.

This blog has warned from the outset that the whole COVID – 19 coronavirus scare was being used by globalists to effect a huge power grab and the abolition of the rights and liberties we in the democratic nations have come to take for granted.

Johnson’s spokesman added that the priority while waiting for the app to be ready is ensuring continued social distancing in order to fullfil the “five tests” to be met before lockdown measures can be eased. Those tests include falling deaths and falling infection rates. This is ridiculous and confirms our suspicions as empirical evidence shows distancing does not work and lockdown, apart from trashing the economy, has failed to curtail the spread of the disease. Nations like Sweden and South Korea which avoided a lockdown, arguing rationally that the economic damage would cause more deaths in the long term than the virus is ever likely to, have experienced no higher infection rate or deathg rate than normal.

Today’s statement from Downing Street follows a heated exchange in the House of Commons on Tuesday 28 April over proposed legislation setting out the legal basis for processing personal data by the app. Shadow deputy leader of the House, Afzal Khan, said that while the app has an “important role to play,” legislation should ensure that it stores data in a decentralized manner. This is nonsense as data stored in a decentralised way, i.e. a distributed database, can still be pulled together almost instantly on entry of certain keywords.

Responding to Khan, Solicitor General Michael Ellis QC said the app will be “voluntary participation only” and there will be “no private identifiable information on it.” Furthermore, the whole process will be “data protection compliant and there will be an ethical advisory board monitoring it,” he said.

If you believe that look out of the window quickly, you might see several pigs flying over your home.

Internet law professor Lilian Edwards took a more cautionary line, telling MPs, that there was a “precedent of other pandemics leading to a mass land grab in extensive state surveillance.” She is probably referring to the pandemics of damp squibs over the past three decades, including SARS, MERS, Swine Flu, Bird Flu and Ebola. The first four of those were so ludicrously hyped they caused the World Health Organisation to change the edfinition of ‘pandemic’ from hundreds of millions of people all around the world will be infected and millions will die, to ‘a few people here and there will feel a bit poorly.‘ Ebola was different, it killed thousands in west Africa in 2014 / 15 but despite a massive campaign to spread fear and panic in the rest of the world the diseasedid not significantly break out of Africa.

Historically, virus epidemics to tend to burn out after a few months. Why this is so has never been understood.

COVID – 19 has turned into a real pandemic, but there are several aspects of how it is thought to have originated, the way it predominantly attacks the old and those with underlying health problems and the fact that all the world’s leading economies were in deficit because of rising welfare bills, that have led conspiracy theorists to speculate that the timing is suspiciously convenient. And the authoritarian measures adopted by governments, vesting far more powers in the state, tend to fuel those suspicions.

Several EU countries have been developing contact-tracing apps in parallel with the UK, a statement from the EU Commission in Brussels earlier this month stated that it wanted EU members to take a “common approach” to the use of digital technologies and data.

The ‘common approach’  recommendation from Brussels has triggered a debate that is still raging in Europe  over whether to use centralized or decentralized solutions for the apps. While a decentralized approach would see data stored on the user’s own phone, a centralized infrastructure would see data sent to a central database run by public authorities, which civil liberties groups say risks evolving into state surveillance.

The German government plans to adopt a decentralized approach it was announced last week. This is a  U-turn on the previous plan which involved full support of the Pan-European Privacy-Preserving Proximity Tracing (Pepp-PT) protocol developed by European Union agencies. Berlin will now support decentralized solutions proposed by Apple and Google instead, which leaves the gathered data on devices controlled by US tech corporations. This approach presents even greater problems for personal liberty activists  as on user privacy and data protection the track record of both these predatory corporations is on a par with that of a fox in a chicken coop.

Meanwhile the UK leans toward a centralized model and it’s been reported that experts from GCHQs National Cyber Security Centre, an agency which has been spying on us through our web use, emails, molbile phone calls and texts for over two decades, are advising on the project. So the unalienable human right to privacy is right out the window then.

In France the government of beleagured president Emmanuel Macron has also been pushing a centralized app solution, prompting hundreds of the country’s computer security experts to sign an open letter asking the government to reconsider due to concerns around privacy and individual freedoms.

Johnson’s spokesman said the government would set out more details regarding the British app as soon as it could. Our advice, Just Say No, Do you really need an app that allows a government no sane person would trust, to track their every movement and who they came into contact with.

In the early days this was innocuous enough, organisations that paid to advertise of Google’s pages had their page links bumped up the search results table.

Later it became more sinister, when you understand that among Google’s clients were organisations including political parties, governments (of some very nasty dictatorships as well as the so – called democracies,) state security agencies, NGOs (non government organisations) promoting and assisting the mass migration of illiterate, unskilled third world males to the developed nations for the purpose of destabilising societies, and other organisations and corporate enterprises pursuing a globalist political agenda.

Yes, the proof is out there that Google (and other internet tech giants,) rather than ‘hostile foreign powers’ have been meddling in elections and manipulating public opinion on certain issues.

British MEP Reveals Undemocratic EU Stitch Up Of Top Jobs

Brexit Party MEP Alexandra Phillips angrily blew the whistle on the undemocratic election process for choosing the European Parliament’s highly influential Committee chairs. The Newly elected MEP claimed the Federalist bloc had organised a “stitch-up behind closed doors”.

Phillips said she was “astonished” by the method the European Parliament uses to elect chairs of its committees. In a video uploaded to the Brexit Party MEP’s Twitter page (embedded below), Ms Phillips says: “So, I’ve just come back from my first committee as an MEP. I am on the Development Committee (DEVE) which is really important to me because I have lived and worked in India and Ghana and Kenya and Cameroon, lots of places.

“And I have seen how badly the EU as a corporate cartel and big business and big banking essentially rides roughshod with trade deals over developing worlds and then uses bits of aid to try and cover up the massive open wounds that they leave behind.

“But what astonished me, the agenda for this meeting was actually appointing the new chair of the Committee.

“But this is already stitched up behind closed doors by the big Parliamentary groups who decide that they will portion out the chairs of committees behind the scenes and then each candidate stands unopposed.

“So I went to the meeting and one chair and vice chairs were automatically appointed because they were the only candidates stepping forward.

“Remember this Parliament is 60 percent new MEPs who haven’t had experience in these areas before and so don’t know the systems and aren’t putting themselves forward.”

Alexandra Phillips tells of her shock at the lack of democracy or transparency in EU

EU leaders have also come under fire for undemocratically facilitating a backroom stitch-up for the bloc’s top job, that of President Of The European Commission. The person chosen to succeed Jean – Claude Juncker in the post is little known Federalist Ursula von Leyen, who emerged as the preferred candidate through a completely opaque process after better known figures were rejected by member states.

Much of the criticism centred around the abandonment of the so-called lead candidate (spitzenkandidat) process, which is designed to give a democratic mandate to the Commission presidency. Instead, leaders held a series of meetings across three days to fill European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker’s role before he is scheduled to step down at the end of October. But nobody seems to know who proposed von Leyen, who voted for her or what qualifies her for the job other than that she is German, a member of Angela Merkel’s CDU Prty know for loyalty to Merkel and a strong supporter of Merkel and Macron’s push to transfor the EU into a Federal superstate.

Following the talks among EU leaders, Ursula von der Leyen, who is currently Germany’s defence minister, a supporter of Federalisation and an advocate of an E U Army, was selected to be the next Commission President. She will become the next European Commission President if the European Parliament approves her appointment. Her path to power may not be smooth however. Member of the European Parliament from The Green Party and a coalition of socialist and communist parties have vowed to oppose her and claim they have the numbers to vote down her appointment.

Lame Duck Merkel Snubbed As EU Leaders Reject Her Choice Of “Half Baked” Socialist For Top EU Job

While Trump’s handshake with an insignificant little fat man, the pro – democracy protests in Hong Kong, the latest exchanges in the US / China trade war and Boris Johnson’s bid to replace the hapless Theresa May as the next UK Prime Minister have dominated mainstream news over the past few days, another story which did not attract anywhere near as much attention could perhaps have far more long term significance. The profression of the ‘European Project’ from a free trade association of friendly and culturally similar nations to a federal superstate suffered its most serious setback to date as the first cracks appeared in the facade of neo – liberal unity presented by the centre – right / centre – left, globalist consensus bloc that has dominated the Union for decades, appeared as German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s ‘s anointed candate to succeed Jean – Clauder Juncker as the president of the European Commission was rejected by other EU leaders.

In May, this year Europe’s ascendant populist parties scored their biggest sucesses yet in elections of representatives to the EU Parliament, a result that shifted the power base in the EU away from the Federalist / Globalist consensus parties to parties strong on sovereignty and national cultural values, though many people who rely on left-leaning outlets like the BBC, CNN, or state controlled French and German TV channels for their information. Britain’s far – left newspaper The Guardian tried to spin the results as a critical victory in as far as the mainstream parties did not do as badly as many pundits feared they would.

Though the center-right coalition known as the EPP (European People’s Party)  and center-left coalition S&D (Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats,)  lost their combined majority in the Parliament, they retained a plurality of votes, while populist parties like Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party and Italy’s League made strong gains. This blow to the establishment’s coalition has made selecting the replacements for Juncker, ECB President Mario Draghi, and other senior bloc-level positions (most of which are filled via backroom horse trading or pork barrel politics democratic process) much more difficult. Smaller nations have always sold their support, now with a realistic challenger to the consensus parties, they find they can demand higher prices.

As of today the new parliament has not yet been sworn in but Merkel, for so long a dominant figure in EU politics, has been exposed as a lame duck after her latest attempt at “un-retirement” was ridiculed in Germany. Her inability to gain support for the coronation of her coalition’s picks for top EU positions is seen as a weakness that can be exploited.

One EU official quoted by Bloomberg called the unexpected resistance to Merkel’s agenda- which came both from her coalition partners as well as ‘smaller countries’ who angered by their were exclusion from a deal cooked up mainly between Germany and France with officials from ther United Nations, the IMF and other supra national bureaucracies at the G20 meeting in Osaka – a “rebellion of rabbits.” Here’s a snippet:

If there was one thing Angela Merkel didn’t factor into her plan to make Socialist Frans Timmermans the European Union’s next chief executive, it was what one official in the room called the “rebellion of rabbits.”

As she flew back from the G-20 in Japan, the German chancellor and veteran of many an EU marathon summit was fairly confident that the 58-year-old Dutchman would be accepted by the rest of the leaders gathering in Brussels to decide who to put forward as the next head of the European Commission.

Sure, it was going to be a long night, but she’s faced down worse. As the sun rose, there was no deal and shortly after noon it was decided to reconvene on Tuesday at 11 a.m. after almost 19 hours of going around in circles. It was something almost without precedent.

What became clear was that Merkel had miscalculated the degree of opposition on two fronts: from her own center-right political family that felt betrayed she gave away the top prize. And also the smaller countries that often feel unseen and bared their teeth at the what felt like a stitch-up cooked up in Osaka.

As Monday morning’s deadline approached, Merkel was forced to meet one-on-one with national leaders in a bid to cobble together enough support for her lap – dog bureaucrats through bipartisan deals to get them accepted. And still, no deal materialized. Here’s how Bloomberg explained it.

For starters, the stage hadn’t been properly set. Deals and assurances weren’t put in place. Young powers smelled blood and growing intolerance for backroom deals – especially in an increasingly fragmented political landscape following May’s EU elections.

For Merkel, one year ago, this type of snub would have been unthinkable. But now that she has stepped down as party leader and set an end date for her historic chancellorship, the new blood in Europe is trying to make its voice heard. Guiseppe Conte, Italy’s Parime Minister, though nationalist firebrand Matteo Salvini, who had to accept a lesser official title is the de facto leader of the Italian government after the EU showed its comtempt for democracy by refusing to accept a Eurosceptic national leader, objected to the package of nominations presented on the grounds that it was put together with the help of people outside the EU political framework and without consultation with all EU members.

Merkel was isolated. Even usually reliable allies like Emmanuel Macron (who really fancies himself as the saviour of the European project, having reduced France from political chaoseto near failed – state political dysfunction in just two years refused to support her . As Bloomberg put it:

And French President Emmanuel Macron was not coming to her rescue – their relationship has been showing signs of strain. “In the long run we must draw consequences of such a failure,” he said at the end of day two. “Our credibility is deeply stained by these endless meetings that lead to nothing. We’re giving an image of Europe that is not serious.”

he PrimeT Minister of unconsidered Bulgaria summed up the frustration of the EPP’s smaller parties: “Nobody has the right to negotiate on our behalf, from EPP, whatever post they have.”

Another described Merkel’s plan to anoint Timmermans as “half baked”.

“Merkel is leader of the CDU, not the EPP,” Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov told reporters. “Well many other things came from Osaka as well. But nobody has the right to negotiate on our behalf, from EPP, whatever post they have.”

Such open defiance to Merkel from the leader of one of the EU’s economic basket cases would have been unthinkable even a year ago.

Project Veritas Releases Email Leaked By Google Mole Approving Censorship Of Conservative Writers

from TownHall.com

Matt covered the bombshell Project Veritas report yesterday which showed key Google employees discussing the various ways that they can manipulate search results in order to ensure the type of United States election results that they want to see. What Google wants, the videos suggest, is to prevent President Trump from winning in 2020.

via Matt:

Well, Project Veritas decided to dig into this bastion of liberalism. After all, its reach to the public with their products is how millions get the news. It’s also a medium that Donald Trump harnessed expertly to outmaneuver the Left in the 2016 election. Liberals know it. Over at Google, one executive, Jen Gennai, is working hard to ensure that its AI feature and associated algorithms work hard to pretty much help alter electoral outcomes.

Project Veritas, founded by James O’Keefe, caught Gennai on tape chastising presidential candidate and progressive icon Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for wanting to break up Google. Gennai claims this is wrong to do because smaller companies would not be able to prevent the “next Trump situation.”

“Elizabeth Warren is saying we should break up Google,” Gennai said. “And like, I love her but she’s very misguided, like that will not make it better it will make it worse, because all these smaller companies who don’t have the same resources that we do will be charged with preventing the next Trump situation, it’s like a small company cannot do that.”  READ ALL >>>

As this blog has reported and speculated on many times, Google’s actions and the comments made by their senior managers, and the cosy relationship the tech company enjoyed with The White House under the Obama administration give grounds to suspect the company is not interested in profit so much as political influence. That is undemocratic and sufficient reason for the parent organisation Alphabet to be broken up. But who is really behind Google’s rise to a position from which it can influence not only the outcome of elections (though obviously not as effectively as its directors like to think, but also shape government policy.

We should remind ourselves every day that Google was launched on its path to dominance of the World Wide Web with money from venture capital outfit InQtel, which as all of us who take the trouble to be well informed are aware is a front for the CIA.

Says it all really.

And They Call Brexit A Farce? EU Chaos As Leaders Fail To Agree Choices For Top Jobs …

 


The Council of Europe – posing for pictures was about the only thing they could agree to do yesterday. (Picture via Politicalite)

The Council Of Europe, which consists of the political leaders of all EU member states (including the UK as Britain is still a member,) gathered for a summit meeting on Thursday to decide which candidates should be appointed to fill several top jobs when European Commission president Jean – Claude Juncker and several other senior figures step down at the end of their terms of office.  They were locked in debate for the whole day and late into the night but were unable to reach agreement on who will fill even one of the positions within the EU.

The current President of the EU Council and one of the people who will retire later this year, Donald Tusk, a former Prime Minister of Poland, said he will organise another summit on the 30th of June to readdress the matter. Tusk, who has been touted as a possible presidential candidate in Poland for the centre-right and pro-EU Civic Platform, is one of the politicians still pushing for political integration of member states, a position which has been shown by the rise of nationalism both in his own country and throughout the EU to be as popular as a plague of boils with EU citizens .

Choosing a replacement for Commission President Juncker was always going to be difficult as the position has previously gone to the candidate favoured by the German government but growing resentment among other member states of the way Germany has manipulated EU policy to its own benefit, added to the huge influx of Eurosceptic European Parliament members following the success of both left and right leaning nationalist movements in the EU election last month. All previous elections have led to the centre – right Christian Democrats of the European People’s Party (EPP) and the centre – left Socialists and Democrats (S&D) groups dominating the assembly. This grand coalition of establishment parties previously divided the leadership positions based on how the two groups performed in the EU elections.

In this year’s elections voters were more polarised in their voting intentions, with a big surge in support for the Greens, the far left, and for nationalist parties.  For many reasons, including the immigration crisis, economic stagnation, an EU expansionist agenda and the increasing awareness that the EU elite is completely out of touch with the problems that beset ordinary people in EU member states, the mood has swung against the consensus politics of the traditional parties. And then there are the minor local difficulties of Brexit and Italy’s launch of a parallel currency which must lead to it leaving the Eurozone. All of this severely weakens the long standing hegemony of the leading German and French parties, all of which have adhered to the neo – liberal consensus.

The failure of the EPP and the S&D to win enough seats for a combined majority in the European Parliament has forced them to look for deals with other groups, most of which seek to overturn the status quo. President Emmanuel Macron, and the new Renew Europe group of centre to centre-right liberal parties that he leads are determined to alter the balance of power in their favour.

Manfred Weber, Chancellor Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) nominee is the EPP group choice to be the Commission President. Macron and his allies have refused to support Weber, and have called on Merkel to anoint another figure. Macron has suggested Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier or Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager as alternative option, but reports suggest neither name figured in the actual discussions yesterday.

The inability to agree on who will assume the presidency of the Commission will in turn, result in delays to the appointment of the new head of the European Central Bank (ECB). The first act of the European Parliament on returning from its summer recess  will be to elect its president from candidates suggested by the European Council, but as the current council, which has not progressed as far as considering that question yet, is unlikely to be able to agree on the candidates that position too is in limbo. Furthermore new European Commission President must be chosen prior to the first sitting of the ninth European Parliament, which takes place on the 1st of July.

Taking all of this into account puts into perspective the words spoken by Jean – Claude Juncker a few weeks ago: “Democracy is a fundamental problem.” For a group of elitists trying to merge 500 million people spread across twenty – seven different nations with widely differing cultural and economic needs into a single political entity, one can see that it is.

It was an understanding of the problems inherent in that which prompted many of us in Britain  to vote to leave the EU.

Electoral Fraud Scandal In Peterborough By – election Being Covered Up?

from Politicalite:

Thanks to Politicalite’s groundbreaking exclusive coverage of the crooked Peterborough By-Election so far, the Daily Mail have picked up on our story and have revealed a fresh incident of alleged electoral fraud being investigated by the Police:

“A knock at the door of a semi-detached house on a street in the East ward of the city of Peterborough.

It’s the afternoon of April 22, eight weeks before the June 6 by-election in which Labour will squeak to victory ahead of Nigel Farage‘s Brexit Party.

Alone at home is a 54-year-old Asian woman with severe health problems.

On her doorstep she allegedly finds Dr Shabina Qayyum, Labour candidate for the ward in the local council elections, along with two male party officials.

What happened next is in dispute. But the resulting allegations were serious enough for the council to call in the police.

Criminal claim was followed by counter-claim; the only certainty is that politics in Peterborough is a dirty business — and has been for some years now.

Labour’s victory by 683 votes, in one of Britain’s most keenly-fought by-elections of recent years, has been overshadowed by accusations of electoral fraud and voter harassment — centred on the Asian community which is particularly active in Peterborough politics.” READ ALL >>>
