Fear of Energy: Polish Prime Minister Calls Nord Stream 2 ‘Highly Dangerous’

Poland, one of the countries opposed to the creation of the international project known as Nord Stream 2 pipeline, to deliver gas and oil from Russia’s energy fields to Europe has proposed an alternative project which would create its own pipeline, dubbed Baltic Pipe. Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has criticized the Nord Stream 2 project, Polish Radio reported on Friday (9 March).

“Poland achieved independence from Russia’s Gazprom long ago; we’ve created a terminal in the city of Swinoujscie and are now planning to increase its processing capabilities, Moreover, we are now in talks with Denmark and Norway,” Morawiecki said during a press conference after talks with his Lithuanian opposite number.

The official noted that Poland and other Baltic states considers Nord Stream 2 “highly dangerous for this part of Europe.” This is understandable as in the past Russia has tended to treat Poland as a semi – autonomour province. The Poles also have little reason to trust their southern neighbour Germany, which also has a track record for using Poland as a training ground for its combat troops.

The head of the German energy company Uniper took a different line, saying that the completion of Nord Stream 2 was necessary to provide security for gas deliveries to Europe.

Last month it was reported that Poland intended to launch its own gas pipeline project, Baltic Pipe, which, in contrast to Nord Stream 2, would lead from Denmark instead of Russia. It is hard to see any logic in this as North Sea gas fields are becoming depleted and rumours of massive, unexplored oil and gas fields off The Shetland Islands are unconfirmed as yet. Poland has already tried to block the construction of Nord Stream 2, with Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki asking US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to make sure that US sanctions cover Nord Stream 2 and those European companies that involved in the project be fined.

A press release by Nord Stream 2 suggests the first pipes for the Nord Stream 2 project are being fabricated at a plant of OMK, which is one of the three pipe suppliers selected by Nord Stream 2 AG, in Vyksa, Russia, in this undated photo provided to Reuters on March 23, 2017. Poland claimed that Nord Stream 2 would increase Europe’s dependence on imported Russian gas.

Nord Stream 2 is a joint venture of Russia’s Gazprom with France’s Engie, Austria’s OMV AG, UK-Dutch Royal Dutch Shell, and Germany’s Uniper and Wintershall. It aims to deliver 55 billion cubic meters of Russian natural gas a year to the European Union across the Baltic Sea to Germany.

The pipeline project has been welcomed by some countries in Europe and opposed by some others, including Ukraine and Poland, while the United States has also expressed its opposition.

Expert Idiot Writes EU In BetterShape Than A Year Ago

Someone named Sophie Gaston wrote in The Daily Telegraph today:

One year ago, the European Union seemed to be on the brink. It had suffered an annus horribilis of political shocks, with three major elections looming on the horizon. Each of those elections represented an opportunity for its weathervane to swing perilously between a calm breeze and violent storms.

With each vote, the EU has taken meaningful steps way from the cliff edge of further destruction. In the shadow of Brexit, the bloc of 27 now feels collectively secure. But the situation has forced it to look hard at itself and become more disciplined, more clear about its own purpose. For EU member states the need for solidarity has never been more urgent, but profound frictions between and within them remain.

Better shape? Really?

Ms Gaston goes on to claim the Spanish regional election, which has held after Miguel Rajoy, the neo Fascist leader of the Madrid government dissolved Catalonia’s regional assembly and suspended its semi autonomous status, produced a pro – EU result. In fact while the pro – EU socialist party, which can always rely on the votes of professional dole claimants to bolster its political support, was the largest party, a coalition of parties supporting independence will have a majority in the new assembly. Let’s have a look what this might mean in a wider context.

The article is yet another demonstration of the fact that ‘expert commentators’ are defined by their common detachment from reality. The writer says that in the past twelve months the EU has become more stable and secure. So how are efforts to form a stable government in Germany going? Spain as we have all seen is falling apart and even the neo – fascist tactics deployed by the EU to disrupt the Catalonia referendum have not intimidated voters into abandoning the independence movement. The Visegrad group gains momentum with each crisis and it seems all the Bureaucratic Dictators in Brussels have left to whip member states into line with is good old “Here come The Russians” scaremongering.

And of course the EU bureaucracy is now engaged in a blatant attempt to depose the democratically elected government of Poland.

The EU looks a lot closer to falling apart now than it did this time last year.

This is a typical example of the sort of slavish devotion to the EU that Remainers have. A complete suspension of reality

“With each vote the EU has taken meaningful steps (a)way from the cliff edge of further destruction….. the block of 27 now feel collectively secure”

What utter nonsense, and what steps? Beating up on Poland, and interfering in its internal affairs. This offers an alarming insight into what the reality of a supra state would entail.

I have known a few Poles quite well in my life and have studied Poland’s history to some degree and I find it amusing to think that the sybaritic cyphers of the EU bureaucracy think they can puncture the Polish sense of nationhood and independence. This is just one example of the forces tending to break the EU apart because when the flow of money from Brussels subsides the adamantine determination of peoples to determine their own fate will remain. Rajoy is probably right when he believes that fascist violence is the only thing that will put the Catalan genie back in its bottle.

Spain, and the EU, had an opportunity to show respect for the Catalan people and give them a free and fair referendum. They didn’t, instead the people of Catalonia have been subjected to extrovert political oppression not seen in Europe for 40 years or more.

This year for the EU has been troubled, but not as bad as feared for them. Next year is going to be hell for them. Puidgemont has already stated he is going to follow the British model of leaving Spain and thereby the EU… aka a Catalonian version of the EU Withdrawal Bill. Which is going to cause massive problems for Spain and the EU given the economic problems that are currently dormant.

Poland, I expect them to leave the EU next year.

Italy, will more than likely have a Eurosceptic coalition of around 60% of the vote on withdrawing from the Euro, if not the EU itself.

Ireland, Donald Trump’s Tax Reform Act involves the repatriation of the Euro Dollar. He is giving the likes of Apple, Google and Amazon a tax break or incentive to repatriate $2.7 – $4trn worth taxes to the USA. Those companies are primarily based in Ireland. With the punitive retrospective tax hits by the EU, the US government are fighting Apple’s corner.

Britain, in all likelihood we will leave without a deal creating a massive black hole in the EU budget.

Germany, no government… likely to have to new elections increasing the power of the FDP and AFD.

Greece, how will they be effected by the contagion given the dormant economic problems?

If ever there was a ‘calm before the storm’ we are now in it and 2018 promises to be an interesting year for opponents of Euronaziism. Remainers in Britain carry on with their nonsense blissfully unaware that more than half of this nation would cheerfully watch them strangled with their own entrails. Elites blissfully ignore the hoi poloi up to and including the moment when the tumbril rumbles up to their own door. The EU elite makes the 18th century French aristocracy seem a model of sensitivity and awareness. How remarkable were the ancient Greeks who had a word for everything important… hubris, nemesis, catharsis…

EU President Branded a Tool of Germany and ‘Europe’s Left-Liberal Elite’

Following an astonishing attack on his home nation, Donald Tusk, President of the European Council and former Prime Minister of Poland has suffered an immediate backlash from the Polish government, which has called into question  his ability to act as an honest broker between EU member-states.

Repeating a pattern we have seen many times before, particularly for us British from former Labour Party leader Neil Kinnock, these anti – establisment maverick political figures get on the Brussels gravy train and become devoted supporters of globalism and the ideas of supra – national authoritarian government.

The EU president’s emotional, late-night message began. “Bitter dispute with Ukraine, isolation within the European Union, departure from the rule of law and independent courts, attacks on the NGO sector and free media — the strategy of [Poland’s government] or a Kremlin plan? Too similar to sleep peacefully.”

When Tusk refers to a departure from the rule of law, he is probably talking about an EU law which would force Poland and other  of the less prosperous EU nations to accept vast numbers of illiterate semi educated immigrants from backward societies in the third world who have flooded into Europe on the back of hausfrau Volksfuhrer Merkel’s idiotic open doors immigration policy and are now causing mayhem in neighbouring Germany. Poland has chosen to uphold Polish law and continue to enforce border controls in order to ensure new entrants are a) able to speak some Polish, b) Willing to accept Polish law and customs and c) are employable.

Prime Minister Beata Szydło‏, shot back, saying he had “done nothing” for Poland since he went to Brussels, and is now using his position to attack it. Szydlo’s conservative Law and Justice Party (PiS) turfed Tusk’s left-liberal Civic Platform (PO) out of office in a landslide shortly after he took up his EU position Tusks idea of liberalism, i.e. sucking up to Germany and Brussels was so popular that after the election his party did not have one single member in the new parliaments,

A statement on the website of the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) kicked Tusk’s balls even harder, that “Donald Tusk remains an instrument in the hands of Europe’s liberal-left elite, who find it difficult to come to terms with the fact that Poland is governed by a conservative party”.

The MFA also notes that Tusk has “cut himself off from Polishness” since he stepped down as prime minister under the ousted Civil Platform Party (PO) in order to take up his EU position — swapping a 240,000 złoty (€60,000) salary in Warsaw for a package of pay and perks worth well over €300,000 a year, including a five-limousine personal motorcade in Brussels.

Soros: The European Union Is Now In An “Existential Crisis” And Trump’s America Is A “Hostile Power”

Speaking about the state of the European project in the wake of Brexit and the continuing advance of nationalism in EU member states, billionaire glabalist George Soros warned the European Union has plunged into an existential crisis as a result of “dysfunctional” institutions and undemocratic decisions imposed on members, and will require the bloc to reinvent itself to survive.

Addressing the Brussels Economic Forum, the financier and notorious meddler in politics said the EU had “lost its momentum” and urged policymakers to abandon the push towards “ever closer union” which has been driven by a top-down approach from Brussels and a Franco – German accord which has been detrimental to smaller member states. His statement is likely to provoke a backlash from Germany, which has most to gain from futher political and economic integration, being already the dominant economic power in the bloc.

“The European Union is now in an existential crisis,” Soros told the audience. “Most Europeans of my generation were supporters of further integration. Subsequent generations came to regard the EU as an enemy that deprives them of a secure and promising future.”

Just a day after Brussels published a paper mapping out its vision of eurozone integration, Mr Soros warned that the single currency area had become “the exact opposite of what was originally intended” according to the Telegraph.

According to a CNBC report, Soros said “Europe’s reinvention would have to revive the support that the European Union used to enjoy.” The reinvention would have to consider past mistakes and to understand what went wrong, and make proposals to make things right, he added.

Soros, who is said by many to have been instumental in engineering Europe’s immigration crisis, praised a German proposal to reduce EU payments aimed at reducing income inequalities for countries that defy Brussels diktat. Hungary and Poland, both net recipients of these ‘cohesion funds’, have been criticized by the EU Commission for their refusal to accept bureaucratically imposed immigant quotas.

The billionaire also had some harsh words for the high handed treatement by the bureaucrats of the EU on southern and eastern European nations which have been crippled economically by membership of the single currency (the Euro). “By imposing an austerity policy they made it practically impossible for the debtor countries to grow out of their debts. The net result was neither voluntary nor equal.”

He also said loss of trust in the EU has led to support for anti-European political parties, explaining: “Now we need a collaborative effort that combines the top-down approach of the EU institutions with the bottom-up movements that are necessary to engage the electorate, instead of a “multi-speed” Europe we should aim for a “multi-track” Europe that would allow member states a wider variety of choices. This would have a far-reaching beneficial effect.”

He urged the bloc to focus on three key areas – dealing with the refugee crisis, Brexit and “the lack of an economic growth strategy”.

Predictably, the man who was behind the movement that sent 1 million allegedly Syrian refugees (but mostltly African and Asian economic migrants,) to Germany in the past 2 years, Soros said Europe needs to overcome the current existential crisis by fighting together against the rise of anti-European sentiment, xenophobic feelings and surrounding hostile powers.

“Externally the EU is now surrounded by hostile powers: Putin’s Russia, Erdogan’s Turkey, Sisi’s Egypt and the America that Trump would like to create but can’t,” Soros said.

He called for a rewriting of European treaties to make the EU work for all members rather than just Germany and the development of a “multitrack” bloc where countries would retain more sovereignty when it comes to decisions on integration, migrant policy and setting interest rates.

Would Hungary Be Denied EU Membership If It Applied Now?

Were Hungary to appy for EU membership now, under its current government, it would be rejected,  former NATO secretary-general and EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana has said. It’s not surprising that a democratically elected government like that of Hungary, which tries to put the welfare of its people head of the political and economic ambitions of the global elites would arrtact the ire of the European Union’s bureaucratic dictatorship, which is quite happy to endorse the accession to full membership of terrorist state Turkey, which is know to have aided and funded the activities if Islamist terror group ISIS in Syria, Iraq and Kurdistan.

Solana said his intention was to raise concerns about the “epidemic of nationalism” across the bloc. Citizens of EU nations need to unite to raise concerns about the increasing authoritarianism of the unelected bureaucrats who run the European Union.

While globalist EUronazis are worried by the actions of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, Solana’s raising questions about Hungary’s EU credentials if it were currently applying for membership should be seen as a threat to member nations that do not comply with the Brussels diktat.

“With the reform of the Constitution of 2013 some of the mechanisms that limited government action on key issues were eliminated,” Solana wrote in an opinion piece for Spanish newspaper El Pais.

“Also, a state council was established with members of the party itself, to regulate the media. It has been said that if today asked Hungary for membership in the European Union, would be rejected.”

‘An Epidemic of Nationalism’

Along with Hungary, Solana also highlighted concerns he held about the direction of the government in Poland, saying an “epidemic of nationalism” had developed in the countries.

“Unfortunately, the epidemic of nationalism and anti-European sentiment has also reached these countries in Eastern Europe. Although there are many causes and countries are not easily comparable, there are two clear trends: the rise of nationalism and the decline of the rule of law.”

Instead of trying to cooperate within the EU to get their voices heard, Solana said Poland and Hungary were trying to “present European policies as challenges to their true national identity”.

Obviously Solana, like most of the elite, has a lot of trouble getting his head round the concept of democracy. Like the medieval aristocracy, who gained their position by conquest, these people think they are a superior species to the ‘downtrodden masses’. They need to be reminded very regularly that if they continue to act like dictators it is they who will be down and ‘we the people who will be doing the treading’.
