Italeave or Quitaly? The EU Is Falling Apart

Italy: Too beautiful to be part of EU bureaucratic dictatorship (picture source)

Since the shock of Britain voting for ‘Brexit’ just over a year ago this blog has been speculating on which EU nation to quit the former free trade association that is being driven by Germany and the globalist elites closer and closer to becoming a single political enity, a Federal superstate (called Germany?)

Our money has always been on Italy although we hedged our bet with a wager on Hungary. And it’s starting to look as if we were correct.

Under the headline Is Italy heading for debt restructuring or euro exit? Financial newsletter Eurointelligence reports that a possible programme for Italy’s leaving the Union is already being discussed in the Italian parliament by the likely partners in a ruling coalition following the next election.

from Eurointelligence (not publicly available)

We are reporting from an important conference in Rome yesterday that has caught the Italian news headlines this morning – on the future of Italian public debt. It was organized by the Five Star Movement, held in the Italian chamber of deputies, and openly discussed issues such default mechanism inside the eurozone, sovereign debt restructuring mechanisms, parallel payment systems, and of course euro exit.

What is important about this debate is that it is now taking place in public – you can’t be more public than inside the parliament. Italians, not only the Five Star Movement, are openly talking about these issues.

One of us was on the podium, where we reiterated our criticism of the Five Star Movement’s previous-held cavalier notion of a euro referendum. The essential point we were trying to make in the debate, well reflected in this morning’s coverage by the main newspapers, is that euro exit is not a decision to be taken lightly. The announcement of a referendum would produce a financial crisis and might turn into a self-fulfilling prophecy. Euro exit belongs to the category of things that, citing Shakespeare’s Macbeth, “if it were done when ‘tis done, then ‘twere well It were done quickly“.

What struck us about this event was the sheer political leverage. Luigi di Maio, the presumptive Five Star candidate for the job of prime minister, seemed to distance himself from supporting euro exit. He sat through the entire 12-hour marathon of discussions. Beppe Grillo and Davide Casaleggio made short appearances. It was very clear that the Five Star Movement is now aggressively tackling the topic of Italy’s future in the eurozone, which is likely to become a major election issue. It also raises questions, as some Italian commentators did this morning, about possible coalition choices for the party if it adopts a more nuanced position on the euro.

A lot of space was given to a discussion on fiscal money – coupons issued by the state to people for use in tax payments. We recall that Yanis Varoufakis worked on a similar scheme for Greece, and one of his advisers at the time gave some details of how such a scheme can be made to work and why it did not work in Greece. The answer is that it requires an extraordinary degree of technical and logistical preparation that is outside the scope of what most governments are physically capable of.

Conferences such as these never reach consensus, but they bring up questions. One of the questions on fiscal money is whether it is sustainable or merely transitional. Is it just an instrument through which a country transitions to a new currency, or just a short-term liquidity measure, or can it work as a supplemental form of money?

Another discussion that struck us was a paper by Alberto Bagnai and Brigitte Granville, who did a stochastic simulation of the costs of euro exit. They noted that there would be an initial cost but that strong counter-cyclical growth would soon resume. The problem with this simulation is that it does not take sufficiently into account the multiple financial shocks that are likely to be dominant during such a phase. Euro exit would do major damage to the financial system both of Italy and the eurozone. The authors have a variable that includes a banking crisis, but we do not think this does justice to the financial Armageddon we are likely to see after an Italian euro exit.

And finally, we noted a comment by Heiner Flassbeck, formerly at the German finance ministry and Unctad, who noted that there can be no solution to the eurozone’s persistent crisis unless one insists on symmetric adjustment in the eurozone. He advocates the strategy that Italy should make a credible threat to leave the eurozone in order to force a German policy shift.

All of Italy’s major political parties, except for the  Democratic Party, the party of Matteo Renzi’s failed government, have flirted with supporting moves to leave the Euro. The current front runners in polls, not that polls are a predictor of outcomes, as we have learned several times recently, with only the french election reflecting polling figures and it is widely suspected that the French result was decided before a single vote was cast.

The path to Italeave is not easy, a referendum and a constitutional change will be required before any decision can be ratified, but trouble is brewing on a huge number of fronts simultaneously:

The Italian banking system is insolvent.
Another refugee crisis is brewing as flimsy, overloaded boats bring thousands of new illegal entrants every week.
Italy’s youth unemployment is a whopping 37%
The ECB is the only buyer for Italian bonds and yields are at record levels
Italy’s debt to GDP ratio is over 130% to the consternation of Eurozone officials
The global recovery still is not happening or EU members.
It is no longer taboo in Italy to talk of leaving the EU or taking back control of the nation’s borders.

Any number of things could start a chain reaction making Italeave look good to a majority of Italian voters. And despite the recent stitch up of Five Star movement in local elections, the other anti – immigration, anti – federalisation parties, Liga Nord and Forza Italia made big advances.

And when Italy goes, more will follow, at an accelerating rate we predict.

BoJo Was Correct – The EU Was A Nazi Idea

And until recently everything was going according to plan.

The biggest kerfuffle in the EU referedum campaign this week came when the University dumbed Down and brain dead, Labour voting sheeple got their knickers in a twist over comments Boris Johnson made about the E U having originally been a Nazi idea. Boris was  accused of misrepresenting or exaggerating the comparison between the EU and the German Nazi’s plan for a union of Europe.

The pro-Brexit former Mayor has stated that both Hitler and Napoleon failed at unifying Europe and that the EU was “an attempt to do this by different methods”, namely without weapons this time!

Donald Tusk, the European Union Council President, said that the former Mayor of London “had crossed all boundaries” by making the comparison.

Lord Heseltine a Pro-Remain campaigner labelled Mr Johnson’s comments “preposterous” & “obscene”.

And all the globalist and authority worshipping screechers (including Gayvid Cameroink and his bum chum Barack Obama joined in con gusto – yeah we can be multicultural)

Unfortunately Boris Johnson was absolutely correct and far from exaggerating he seems to have somewhat understated his case. To date however, we have not heard one apologetic voice from the Remain campaign acknowledge this important point. But then their entire campaign is built on lies and misrepresentations (oh and the usual hate and envy from the left wing factions.

The Nazi origin of the European Union is 100% documented and easily verifiable. The linked page in this paragraph provides  a brief overview of what the Nazi regime envisaged for the continent of Europe after World War 2.

The European Community, a 1940 book by Nazi Economics Minister and war criminal Walther Funk wrote about the needs of creating a “Centralized European Union” and “European Economic Area’s” he argued, “There must be a readiness to subordinate one’s own interests in certain cases to those of [the EC].” (A shorter summary can be found HERE)

Nazi academic Heinrich Hunke wrote, “Classic national economy is dead…community of fate which is the European economy…fate and extent of European co-operation depends on a new unity economic plan”.

Fellow Nazi Gustav Koenig observed, “We have a real European Community task before us…I am convinced that this Community effort will last beyond the end of the war.”

Other top Nazis who called for the creation of a pan-European federal economic superstate dominated by Germany and through which Germany would dominate Europe if (when) the war was lost, include Ribbentrop, Quisling and Seyss-Inquart, who spoke of “The new Europe of solidarity and co-operation among all of its people… will find…rapidly increasing prosperity once national economic boundaries are removed.”

In 1940, Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels ordered the creation of the “large-scale economic unification of Europe,” believing that “in fifty years’ time [people would] no longer think in terms of countries.”

Just 53 years later, the European Union in its current form was established.

It’s no surprise that what these top Nazis proposed is almost identical to what the EU later become.

Boris was also right to say that the EU is the very bureaucratic, centralized, dictatorial European federal superstate similar to the one Hitler and other top Nazis had planned to implement after World War 2.

Will TTIP Make Europe A Colony Of The USA?

As well as writing most of my posts for the news site I’m on now in support of the Brexit campaign, I have also been actively opposing TTIP, the Trans Altantic Trade And Investment Partnership, a treaty negotiated in secret between EU and US bureaucrats, the drafts of which have not even been released to elected representatives of the people on either side of the Atlantic.
Fortunately, thanks to the diligence of the people at Wikileaks, we do know something of what TTIP contains, and far from being about free trade, it is in fact a big step towards a global version of what, in Benito Mussolini’s definition, can only be called fascism (collaboration between political and financial elites to create an all powerful central authority).

So if you are a supporter of fascism, vote Remain. Also, dump the hypocrisy and start identifying yourselves as fascists. If on the other hand you love freedom, democracy, your country and its culture and traditions, and you are lucky enough to live in Britain and so have a vote, join the fight against global fascism by voting OUT in the EU referendum in June.

This article via Information Clearing House will help a lot of waverers understand what the EU and TTIP are really all about.

Here’s a taster

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) would Abolish Europe’s Sovereignty.

Is Madame Merkel Betraying the EU – Endangering the Lives of Future European Generations with her Push for the Nefarious TTIP?

By Peter Koenig
April 26, 2016 “Information Clearing House” – “Global Research“- This incisive article first published by Global Research in December 2014 is of utmost relevance to the ongoing process of US-EU negotiation of the TTIP
Author’s Introduction and Update 

President Obama will be visiting Germany and Mme. Merkel tomorrow (24 – 25 April) for the Hannover Industrial Messe, the world’s largest Industrial fair, lobbying, in a last ditch convincing effort, Madame Merkel, of the good of the TTIP – that must be signed as soon as possible – maybe even during his upcoming trip to Europe. Everything around the infamous and nefarious TTIP is possible, as it all happens in secret and behind closed doors. 
One of the most important items on Obama’s check list before he leaves office is obtaining the signatures of the ‘free trade agreements’ – the TPP – Transpacific Partnership with 11 Asian and Pacific countries, and the TTIP – Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership with the 28 EU countries. The TPP is almost done. Completion of the two trade agreements – the economic enslavement of Asia (except for China and Russia who bluntly refused to join) and Europe, was one of the conditions for the top elite – call them ‘Illuminati’ – when they summoned him to a special Bilderberg meeting on 5-8 June 2008, in Chantilly Virginia (just outside Washington DC). They caught him in full campaign missing an important campaign event in Chicago. 
The purpose of the meeting was to figure out whether he is worth the money they were willing to pour into his election to make him President. He complied. His psychological profile having been profoundly analyzed before, they knew he would.

And indeed, the spineless Obama complied with all of the conditions. And they made him President at a cost of about US$ 740 million, about double of what Bush’s second term presidential campaign cost, and about half of the price of Obama’s second term presidency. 

Below  is my article published by Global Research in December 2014, on the nefarious consequences of the TTIP – to remind people what is laying ahead for Europe, if the EU and its members ratify the TTIP: Slavehood, sheer and unescapable corporate slavehood, enhanced and controlled by Goldman Sachs — and not to forget, the Rothschilds, who are the invisible hand behind the FED.  
Katherine Frisk sums up best what the TTIP would mean for Europe:
 

International “free trade” agreements such as the TTIP and the TPP which will override the National Sovereignty of any country who signs them, the Constitution of any country, their Constitutional law courts and any laws that any government may or may not make regarding health regulations, minimum wage regulations or environmental requirements. Far from being Capitalism with checks and balances restricting monopolies, it is a form of Corporate Fascist hegemonic colonialism and Corporate Empire building, eliminating all competition in the interests of monopolies.

Angie: Will Hausfrau Merkel Provide The Out Campaign’s anthem

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Monday that if EU members were not able to agree to a fair distribution of refugees, the Schengen zone of passport-free travel within Europe would be called into question.

We say to Hausfrau Merkel:

“Angie Baby, you’re a special lady
Living in a world of make-believe

Angie Baby, Helen Reddy’s song about insanity, fits the insanity of Angie Baby Merkels desire to turn Europe into a paleolithic society like many in Africa

but there’s another point of view on Angies madness of course. And it could fit the Merkel – led EU even better … The Rolling Stones provide us with what could become the anthem of the ‘Out’ campaign in the upcoming referendum.

“But Angie, Angie, ain’t it time we said good-bye?
With no loving in our souls and no money in our coats
You can’t say we’re satisfied.”

Troika Is Manoeuvering To Rig The Greek Referendum

Uncle Joe knew a thing or two (image source)

According to Greece’s finance minister Yanis Varoufakis, the troika, the IMF, European Central Bank and EU Commission is planning to rig the outcome of the Greek referendum on whether to accept further austerity measures in return for bail out cash and an extension of the debt relief programme.

In a TV interview, Mr. Varoufakis said unequivocally, “This is a very dark moment for Europe. They have closed our banks for the sole purpose of blackmailing what? Getting a ‘Yes’ vote on a non-sustainable solution that would be bad for Europe.”

Most politicians go anywhere near telling the truth, but Varoufakis seems refreshingly honest and is the ONLY finance minister who appears to understand the demands of the Troika are not plausible for Greece (or any other nation) amounting as they do to a total surrender of sovereignty to the unlected bureaucrats of Brussels.

Mr. Varoufakis also said Germany’s Angela Merkel has tried to skirt any responsibility by saying this is a Troika decision.

“One must seriously ask, are those in the Troika just totally brain-dead?” he added, “Their blackmail and economic war against Greece will be evidence to ensure that Britain leaves the EU. The ONLY thing that saved Britain was Maggie Thatcher’s effort to keep Britain out of the euro for she knew far too well where it would lead. The view in Poland is also now anti-euro. Any Brit who now does not vote to get out of the EU and the grips of the Troika is ignorant of world events and the political power play going on.”

The EU leaders are due to travel to Athens after the referendum. Varoufakis claims only then will they realize that their powers are so off the wall that they dare not expose their own schemes. Hollande of France wants a resolution for he fears Marine Le Pen’s campaign for a Frexit is gaining momentum. Obama wants a resolution that will keep Greece in the EU, fearing Greece will be forced into the arms of Russia, thus breaking down NATO.

Irish Senator Says same Sex Marriage Vote Will Lead To Change Like Soviet Revolution

Irish gays celebrate with a new version of Riverdance called Alimentary Canal dance (image source)

The really annoying thing about news events like the “Yes” vote in Ireland’s same sex marriage referendum is that they always inspire lefties to start spounting the most inane drivel. Like this:

A pro-gay marriage Irish Senator David Norris (IND) has told journalists at Dublin Castle he hopes the vote to legalise same sex marriage will lead to change across the world, just as Ireland inspired the Bolshevik revolution of 1917 (WTF?). Senator Norris, was talking about how Ireland was a “small island on the edge of Europe” but that it could have a much wider impact.

The example he cited was the General Post Office (GPO) uprising in Dublin in Easter 1916. A group took over the GPO and fought against the British Army to maintain control of it for several days. The attack was unpopular at the time as it was seen to undermine the British and Irish efforts to win First World War.

Those responsible only caught the public imagination later when the British sentenced them to death, a ruling that proved hugely unpopular in what is now the Irish Republic. However Norris claimed their actions had “inspired” the Bolshevik uprising in Russia the following year. It led to the establishment of the Soviet Union and led to the deaths of tens of millions in forced labour camps and through famine.

He said: “We hope this vote will change things, in Africa and across the world just as the Irish rebellion of 1916 led to the 1917 revolution in Russia”. His comments were met with applause from the assembled crowd of pro-gay marriage supporters.

Change like the Soviet Revolution eh? Well let’s recall how that worked out. Stalinism, suppression of free speech, persecution of certain minorities including homosexuals, gypsies and Jews, genocide, food shortages, persecution of Communist Party members who questioned the leadership, shortages of food and clothing, economic and social stagnation, persecution of religious congregations, shortages of electricity, gas and coal, persecution of everybody, etc. etc. Well the Gay BLT and Yooman Rights lobby are certainly as authoritarian, self righteous and ideologically driven as the regimes of Lenin and Stalin. I have a horrible feeling this bloke might be onto something here.

The Inevitable Claims That The Scottish Vote was Rigged Are Gathering Momentum

No one on the Boggart Blog team or even at The Daily Stirrer actually expressed an opinion on which way we wanted the Scottish independence vote to go. That’s because none of us are Scottish and didn’t have a vote, nor did we have an opinion.

We all love Scotland for different reasons and would hate to see our countries divided but were all aware that whichever way it went would be divisive. And we were all aware that with the EU and USA absolutely dreading the break up of the UK there was no way the Yes campaign would be allowed to win. Even if the Scots had voted Yes, somehow the result would have been overturned (remember the Irish referendum on the Lisbon Treaty, which itself was just a rehash of the European Consitution thrown out by referendum in France and The Netherlands anyone?). Which explains why the No vote looks like it will turn out to be more divisive in the UK than a Yes vote might have been.

After Allegations Of Indyref vote fraud – Petitions gain traction for recount

Scots wha hae when votes were rigged

A petition demanding a recount in the Scottish independence referendum has been signed by over 150,000 people after videos purporting to show evidence of vote fraud went viral on the internet in the aftermath of last week’s referendum vote.

Several video clips appear to show sporadic examples of potential vote fraud, feeding into existing suspicions that the British establishment was prepared to go to any lengths to prevent Scotland from gaining independence from Westminster. After the alleged vote fraud videos went viral, online petitions popped up, with tens of thousands rushing to advocate a recount. Scroll to the bottom of this City AM page to see a video which shows several examples of alleged cheating

A change.org petition started by Scottish voters demands “a revote of the Scottish Referendum, counted by impartial international parties.” Can’t see them getting one but it indicates there is a lot of bitterness in the wake of the vote that will last for a long time.

The petition has been signed by nearly 90,000 individuals. A separate petition which demands an independent enquiry into vote fraud allegations has topped 62,000 signatures.

A comment posted by the person who started the petition, appealing for an end to the hate attacks, was posted on Facebook.

A personal word.
by Kirstie Keatings
Petition organiser

I would like to respectfully ask that people stop contacting me on my facebook regarding this petition just because they don’t agree with it. I am merely the one who started this petition, not the voice behind it. For that, you should look to the (currently) 81,000 signatories, as it would be nothing without them. If there is no truth to the evidence of vote rigging then you have nothing to fear, do you? Let democracy take its course and do not harass anyone to do with this petition or its subsequent groups and rallies.

WTF? What is happening to free speech in our country? Kirstie is right about the evidence or lack of, and she has a right to her opinion and to express it even if she is wrong about the vote rigging.

Global institutions and individuals including David Cameron, corporates and major banks pulled out all the stops to sow fear about independence after polls suggested it was moving towars a Yes vote. When George Osborne, Danny Alexander, Ed bollocks and Gordon Broon agree in their predictions of economic doom, it can’t get any more insane than that.

The elite onslaught against secession employed at least two strategies. The first involved threats and “for your own good” lectures. US Senator Mr. Magoo John McCain even sugggested that Scottish independence would help terrorists (what, by arming, funding and training them like the Obama administration has?)

The second strategy involved pleading and begging, which, of course, betrayed how truly fearful the West’s ruling class is of secession.

The threats that focused on the Scottish monetary system were particularly telling. The very last thing that govt’s in London, Brussels, or Washington, DC want to see is an established Western country secede from a monetary system and join another in an orderly fashion because if that happens it will allay fears about the Russian / Chinese / Iranian bit to replace the $US as the global reserve currency and encourage Eurozone nations to quit the European Single Currency system.

Political secession is bad enough and is a constant worry for the bureaucrats who run the EU which not only hopes to expand Europe into the middle east and north Africa (or create a superstate, Eurasia as George Orwell called it in ‘1984’) but also establish itself someday as a perpetual union governed by a totalitarian bureaucratic dictatorship with no Get Out Of Jail cards on the board. A successful withdrawal from a major global currency, even if to join the EU monetary system later, would imply that countries have monetary options other than being absorbed wholesale (and permanently) by the EU.

When we get a vote of an independent England I’m voting ‘Yes’ although I’d rather see us split four ways with Anglia, Mercia and Wessex becoming a federal province of Europe and The Danelaw joining an economic union with Scotland, Ireland, Denmark, Norway and Sweden. We might become an economic basket case but at least WE’D KNOW HOW TO THROW PARTY.
