EU taking on Google – Well One German Publisher Is

Those New World Order fanatics at The Guardian, bless them, seldom miss a trick when it comes to promoting the single European Superstate and the globalist agenda. Their latest misrepresentation is to try and make us feel the European Union is somehow protecting our freedoms even as the bureau rats of Brussels are taking them away.

The fight to stop Google grabbing control of all the information in the world is not being led by Junkhead, Van Rompuy-pumpy, Baroness Ashton and the rest (they are pushing the neo-feudal Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership which would enable corporations like Google to override sovereign laws made by national governments) but by a German publishey big German publisherr – a very big and influential German publisher.

Mathias Döpfner  is CEO of Axel Springer SE, Europe‘s biggest newspaper publisher, which owns its bestselling tabloid, Bild. His stated mission declares that Springer should become “the world’s leading digital publisher ” This conflicts just a tad with Google’s  stated mission that their aim is to become the world’s ONLY digital publisher.

Axel Springer prepared to defend their position by introducing a partial paywall for Bild’s online offering, bought  TV news channel N24, and repositioned the print publishing operation behind  flagship broadsheet, Die Welt, so that the web editors now commission content and a team of 12 editors compile the print edition from the online bounty.

Then Döpfner, a former journalist himsel felt it was time to pick a battle with the biggest player in new media: Google.

In April 2014, he lobbed a grenade in the form of an open letter to Google’s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt, in which he accused the Search Engine Giant of operating a business model that “in less reputable circles would be called a protection racket”, and of discriminating against competitors in its search rankings (Google deny this but it is very obviously true). Google’s motto was “if you don’t want us to finish you off, you’d better pay”, he wrote .

Last Wednesday, he told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “We need a simple rule of fair and transparent search criteria, and I think the product that has the highest traffic should be on the top rank and the product that has the lowest traffic should be on the lowest rank. But unfortunately, Google is not respecting that.”
In a speech on Monday, Döpfner went even further, saying that Google was “abusing its dominant position”,  This looks like hypocrisy coming from the head of a media empire which for decades abused its dominant market-position in the German media to impose a reactionary agenda on policymakers, but on the other hand it is no more hypocritical than google whose corporate motto ought to read “Don’t be evil, that’s our job“.

Obama Expresses Support For Ukraine’s Democratically Elected Government

As Ukraine slides towards civil war in much the same was as Syria did thanks to meddling by the USA and European Union in its domestic affairs (the Syrian project did not bring down the incumbent regime but in all other ways the progression has been the same) while Russian and NATO troops mass on the borders, the warmonger, mass murderer and former rent boy Barack Obama is doing his best as usual to make a bad situation worse.

from Infowars:

‘While Obama himself along with other members of the administration have repeatedly complained about pro-Russian “propaganda” clouding the Ukraine crisis, the President’s characterization of a government that came to power as a direct result of a violent overthrow of the democratically elected Yanukovich administration as “duly elected,” when no democratic vote of any kind took place, is either a huge gaffe or a flagrant act of deception. Here’s the full quote in context from the transcript;

“What they cannot accept, understandably, is the notion that they are simply an appendage, an extension of Russia, and that the Kremlin has veto power over decisions made by a duly elected government in Kiev.”

“The government in Kiev is anything but duly elected since it was installed with the aid of the United States itself after a violent uprising that unseated the previous government which actually was duly elected,” some might well say.

In this case I would disagree with them, the current government in Kiev was installed by nd for the benefit of the Obama administration. And Barack Hussein Obama has always believed in one man, one vote. So long as he’s the one man who casts the one vote.

While the propaganda (and it is propaganda) about the E U economic recovery is starting to sound like a spinal Tap gig where the amps are turned up to eleven, what is going on behind the scenes suggests what is really happening is the opposite of recovery. In fact the latest moves in finncial markets tell us Europe is introducing a regime of capital controls.

from Zero Hedge

“Today we learned that Italy has just ordered banks to withhold a 20% tax on all inbound wire transfers: a decree which on top of everything will apply retroactively to February 1. As Il Sole reports, “the deductions will be automatic (unless prior request for exclusion), and then it will be up to the taxpayer to prove that the money is not in the nature of compensation “income.” In other words, as of this moment, but really starting two weeks ago, all Italians are money launderers unless proven innocent.”

In effect Italy has enforce a stealth withholding tax on all inbound money Il Sole says:

“The mechanism that provides a primary role to the bank official that is to receive the declaration of the taxpayer and evaluate it. In any case, you make the deduction or not, the name of the recipient will be reported by the bank Revenue Agency. And the taxpayer has until February 28 of the year following the year of the deduction to attest to the improper application of withholding tax to the bank and ask for a refund.”

Naturally the result will be that more Italians – the seriously wealthy ones – will open bank accounts either in other Eurozone nations that have not enacted punitive measures against those who earn money abroad to the benefit of the economy, or in such tax havens as Singapore now that Switzerland’s main business model for centuries has been destroyed. The end result will be even less capital inflows into Italy – just the opposite of what the desperate Italian government is trying to achieve but don’t bureaucrats always achieve the opposite of what they are trying to do.

But that is a problem for the next Italian government (taking office this week) and the one promptly replacing it (by mid March). Meanwhile, in these meritocratic times, let’s all pretend Europe is fixed because the statistics published by Brussels say it is, even as the Euronazis prepares for the final solution to the Eurozone economic crisis; the confiscation of citizens savings.

We Want EU Not Dictatorship Say Ukraine Protestors

Protests continue in the former Soviet republic of Ukraine as people call on the government to reverse a decision which would rule out eventual membership of the EU and pave the way for closer political and economic ties with Russia.

The Independent reported:
“‘Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych proposed an amnesty on Friday for all those facing criminal charges over the wave of anti-government protests that have hit the country over the last three weeks, after its withdrawal from a political pact with the European Union.

The move appears to have done little to placate opposition leaders, and with another demonstration set for Sunday which could see hundreds of thousands of people again on the streets, three demonstrators explain why they are there.’” Read full report in The Independent

In view of historical hostilities between Russia and Ukraine and a visceral hated of the Russian in a nation where, under the rule of Stalin’s Soviet regime many millions were either summarily executed for political dissent or died of malnutrition as the Moscow government plundered the rich agricultural economy of the satellite state to feed its own people, the objections to a stronger relationship with Russia are very understandable. There is something wrong with their protest however.

If the people of Ukraine fear a dictatorship, why the hell do they want to join the Bureaucratic Dictatorship that is the European Union.

Why Don’t Euronazis Understand "No".

The limited vocabulary of those who run the European Union is something I noticed many years ago. Now I may be a more diligent guardian against Euronaziism than most bloggers but I think everybody became aware after the debacle of the Irish referendum on the transfer of sovereign powers from the elected parliament to the unelected paper shufflers and bean counters of Brussels, that when they EU gives us a choice and we choose the wrong option, they just ask us to choose again … and again … and again. (Europe says F U to democracy)

Now the Naziism in Brussels has trickled down from sovereign powers to more mundane matters, for example, who should be making the laws that govern us, or elected Parliaments or American based global corporations of the Big Pharma, Big Ag, Big Food, Big Media or Big War cartels. yes, government by lobbying has arrived.

My, haven’t those pharma lobbyists been busy!

I learn from the excellent Dick Puddlecote blog that the Eurotwats in Brussels are trying to sidestep October’s decision by the EU parliament and bring in medicalisation of e-ciggies anyway. Now e – ciggies are a harmless substitute for smokers who recognise the health hazards of nicotine but like the warm secure feeling a ciggy gives, almost as if they are still at their mother’s tit. But enough of my sarcasm, people should be free to make their own choices no matter what a bunch of smooth faced limpdicks in the EU think.

A document has been leaked which lays out dozens of clauses which the Big Pharma have sold to the EU to be inserted into the tobacco products directive.

Smokers rights campaigner Bates describes the trust of the document like this:

Basically, the Commission has tried to smuggle in as much medicine-style regulation as possible, and then added the most restrictive commercial aspects of tobacco regulation on top – thus imposing the worst of both worlds for this most promising product. There are one or two acceptable things in the new draft, of course, but the very bad things listed hugely outweigh them all.

Bearing in mind that a PhD in incompetence is the essential qualification for reaching the upper echelons of any bureaucracy we predict this will backfire. Conservative estimates already reckon one in four cigarettes sold in the UK are brought in illegally (realistic estimates put the figure as high as one in two) and with the latest attack on smokers’ rights, which had focused on plain packaging (because as the ‘science’ clearly does not show though the bansturbators insist it does, people only smoke because the packets are such pretty colours) has now opened a second front against substitute ciggies that carry no health risk.

It is obviously not the health of smokers that concerns the bansturbators of the authoritarian left, but the fact that people are enjoying something. There can be not other reason why the unelected bureaucrats have not sent away Big Pharma lobbyists, telling them “No, we are not doing this, the elected body voted against making nicotine substitute a prescription only drug that your bosses can profit from.”

Don’t F*** With The Russians

Moscow today accused the European Union of theft after it emerged the bailout of Cyprus would result in heavy losses for foreign depositors, many of whom are Russian.

The cash-strapped island nation needs a 10billion euro (£8.5billion) rescue package to recapitalise its ailing lenders and keep the government afloat.

As we reported last week some of the biggest depositors in Cyprus banks are Russian businesses and private individuals.

Earlier the Boggart Blog news desk learned an important gas pipeline supplying gas to E U nations has unexpected closed over the weekend leaving Britain with only 36 hours of gas supplies in reserve.

Any connection we wonder.

Europe Says Eff U To Democracy

Only the Bureautwats of Brussels would be unable to see the joke in calling their new financial integration treaty the F U treaty.

But in their defence the Brussels mafia are as unfamiliar with humour as they are with what constitutes democracy. Ireland used to have exemplary rules on the implementation of neo – Fascist assaults on it’s sovereign powers by the Eurotwats. The Irish constitution stated that there must be a referendum on any new measure that affected it’s sovereignty. It also provided for the distribution of a summary of each side’s case to every household and a fair allocation of broadcast time. In order to get the Nice Treaty (a slightly disguised version of the Lisbon Treat which the Irish rejected) ratified by the voters, these rules were altered, basically making it a civil offence to tell the truth about what the new rules would be to Irish sovereignty. All Irish referendums, not just those on new EU federalist laws, are now conducted in a biased way.

The F U treaty (or financial stability pact as the BBC like to call it) poses two questions. First, are bank bailouts right in principle? Ought taxpayers to rescue financiers from the consequences of their incompetence? Second, even if they are right in principle, is it fair for Ireland to be stuck with the bill for propping up the entire European banking system?

The case of the pro Federalism, Pro-Treaty Forces is to say: ‘Never mind the bollocks, if you vote “No”, the E U will not lend your crippled economy any more money, so F U.

Ireland is the only country allowed a referendum. All other nations only require the vote of their Parliament to ratify a treaty that will effectively make their nation a province of Greater Germany. And politicians are such weak self indulgent creatures it is easy to guarantee their support by videoing them taking bungs or in compromising positions with prostitutes procured by Dominique Strauss Khan Associates Ltd.

If you think this is just anti New World Order hyperbole, look at this website a supposedly a factual resource funded by the Irish government. It is so extreme, so blatantly biased it even makes BBC Radio Four’s Today Programme look fair and balanced. counterproductive.

Why should Irish voters rely on their government, deeply in thrall to Brussels, to interpret the the ‘Stability Treaty’ for them when the clue is in the name.

Eff You.
