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.

How Much Does The UK Actually Send To The EU

Big kerfuffle this week over Conservative Party leadership contender Boris Johnson facing a court hearing over his claim, made during the EU Referendim campaign, that Britain sends £350million a week to Brussels. Originally the Rabid Remainers tried to claim somebody in the Leave campaign (they weren’t quite sure if it was Boris, Nigel Farahe, Jacob Rees – Mogg, Michael Gove or somebody else and didn’t really care,) had said all of the money would go to the NHS. Nobody had actually said it of course but such is the solipsism of the globalist camp that if they want something to be true, they can easily convince themseles it is true.

The claim is in fact true but misleading. If the amount paid into the EU budget is taken, then it is close to £350million a week. Our net contribution (i.e. after the amount paid by the EU to fund various EU supported projects means the net amount we contribute to the EU is somewhat less. However that £350million is not the full story:

from The Bruges Group

The true cost to Britain being a part of the European Union is close to £661 million per week since 2010, a number hidden from the British taxpayers due to an intricate payments system and largely ignored by the mainstream media.

Our estimated figure encompasses £80billion lost to the Treasury after the European Court of Justice forced tax rebates to multinationals.

A key area of controversy is on the rebate, an annual, purported “reduction” in United Kingdom’s contribution to the EU budget that’s equal to about 66% of the difference between what the UK contributes to the EU budget and its receipts from the EU.

Even after the rebate, in membership fees alone, Britain shelled out £70.6 billion since 2010.

Data derived from a briefing paper on “The UK’s contribution to the EU Budget” indicates Britain contributed between £8-10 billion per year. The same report acknowledged “the UK made the second largest net contribution to the EU budget in absolute terms, and the third largest net contribution per head of population” in 2015.

If the EU exceeds its budget, as it did in the fiscal year 2014-2015, UK is responsible for footing the difference. We did that year in the amount of £1.7 billion, as reported by the Daily Mail.

The EU demanded the amount after recalculating the income of member states dating back almost 20 years, penalizing the British economy that was found to be larger than previously determined. The article detailed Britain “paid the amount due” in full with two instalments not subject to rebates.

Parliament has no control over these payments since Britain is part of the EU and civil servants are legally obliged to pay these costs. Britain is increasingly relied upon as a financial support structure for Eurozone countries facing serious financial difficulty or at risk of defaulting on their debt

UK Parliament Seizes Internal Facebook Documents

Zuckerberg mig shot
Zuckerberg – his prison mug shot?

After Mark Zuckerberg has twice failed to respond to a summons to answer questions in front of a UK Parliamentary investigation into Facebook’s failure to protect users privacy, and hold accountable for the Cambridge Analytica data breach outrage, the U.K. Parliament has seized a cache of Facebook’s confidential documents from an American software executive visiting the country on business.

The Guardian reports that Parliamentary officers used their legal powers to demand the handover of a number of Facebook documents which are believed to contain proof the social media giant knew a lot more than they have admitted about the Cambridge Analytica data scandal which saw the personal information on 87 million Facebook users mined by a third party software developer that intended to sell the data to political organisations. The decision to seize the documents came after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg refused to appear before U.K. Parliament to testify about the data breach as he did before U.S. Congress. Zuckerberg instead offered to send a Facebook representative.

Damian Collins MP,  chair of the Culture, Media and Sport select committee, took advantage of a rarely used parliamentary power to force the founder of U.S. based software company Six4Three to hand over documents relating to Facebook while he was in the U.K. on business. Parliament went as far as sending a sergeant-at-arms to the software company founder’s hotel to give him a two-hour deadline to comply with its order and hand over the documents. When he failed to do so, he was escorted to Parliament where he was informed he faced heavy fines and even imprisonment for not complying.

He complied.

“This is an unprecedented move,” said Collins,  “but it’s an unprecedented situation. We’ve failed to get answers from Facebook and we believe the documents contain information of very high public interest.”

Collins added that Zuckerberg’s refusal to testify before the U.K. Parliament and testimony from a Facebook executive in February which they found to be misleading has forced Parliament’s hand in the matter. As usual, when challenged by the authorities, Facebook have acted as if they are above the law. Obviously Zuckerberg does not realise his friend and protector Barack Obama is no longer president. Well I’ve often said any adult who has a five year old’s haircut like the one Zuck sports cannot possibly be smart.

A statement issued by the Culture, Media and Sport select committee, stated: “We have very serious questions for Facebook. It misled us about Russian involvement on the platform. And it has not answered our questions about who knew what, when with regards to the Cambridge Analytica scandal. We have followed this court case in America and we believed these documents contained answers to some of the questions we have been seeking about the use of data, especially by external developers.”

The cache of legal documents from Six4Three make a number of allegedly damning statements about Facebook, claiming that the social media firm was aware of the implications of its privacy policy and actually purposefully exploited them, leading to the loophole which allowed Cambridge Analytica to collect the user data of 87 million users.

Anonymous claims to expose huge psyop in Europe and it’s funded by UK & US

Anonymous has published documents which it claims have unearthed a massive UK-led psyop to create a “large-scale information secret service” in Europe – all under the guise of countering “Russian propaganda.”

In a document dump on November 5, the group exposed the UK-based ‘Integrity Initiative’, said to have been established by the ominously titled Institute for Statecraft in 2015.

The main objective is “to provide a coordinated Western response to Russian disinformation and other elements of hybrid warfare.” The Institute for Statecraft is affiliated with the NATO HQ Public Diplomacy Division and the Home Office-funded ‘Prevent’ program, so objectivity is, of course, at the forefront of their work.

Integrity Initiative: A Look Into the Deep State?

Early in 2018 the name Andy Pryce began to circulate around the rumour mill. He had been making statements to the press about Russia, where he was described as ‘Head of Counter Disinformation and Media Development’ at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

I asked some former Foreign Office people I know if they had ever heard of a ‘counter disinformation’ team – they hadn’t. The earliest press reference I could find to him and his job was in September 2017, so this was apparently a relatively new role.

Also in September 2017, Pryce took part in an event called ‘DEMOCRACY AND PROPAGANDA: Can independent media defend universal values?’, held in the Hilton Hotel in London. This was organised jointly by the European Endowment for Democracy and the EU Eastern Partnership, which, it turns out, is an FCO programme that “works to counter and reduce the effect of destabilising disinformation”.

Pryce took part in the first round of Ukrainian-British interagency consultations on countering cyber threats held in London in March this year.

He took part in the 2018 EU DisinfoLab, in April.

In October he took part in the Atlantic Council’s Global Forum on Strategic Communications and Digital Disinformation event, held in Washington DC. Of note here is that this was a two day event. Andy Pryce’s contribution came on day two, which has not been made available on video.

To get to the bottom of what Andy Pryce is, and what he does, I decided Freedom of Information was probably the best approach. I asked about the scope of his role and the size of his team, and was both bemused and amused that the request for information was refused on the basis of ‘national security’: the Freedom of Information act says that national security can only be used as grounds for refusal where intelligence services are involved.

Nearly a year since the submission of that question, the FCO’s response is now under investigation by the Information Commissioner.

US Lobbying Group Accuses UK of ‘Attempting to Silence Criticism of Islamism’


Tommy Robinson – picture: Huffington Post

Controversial British activist Tommy Robinson was arrested on contempt of court charges earlier this year for filming inside Canterbury Crown Court while four suspected rapists were being tried. Robinson,  real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, has been invited to the USA to speak at a closed-door conservative event and publicly address Americans in Washington.

The Middle East Forum, seven members of congress, and the David Horowitz Freedom Center, invited Robinson on Wednesday to give a talk at the Conservative Opportunity Society in November, provided legal proceedings against the activist end favorably and permit him to travel abroad.

While Robinson’s political views may be a tad extreme for most, he has a point in accusing the UK government and legal system of failing to act properly and justly in failing to prosecute the predominantly Muslim members of gangs that for many years groomed and abused vulnerable, under age girls in British towns. Police and care authorities were pressurised by politicians to ignore reports of these crimes until a wave of public presure, led in part by Robinson, forced then to act.

 Supporters of Tommy Robinson Gather Outside Central London Court (VIDEO)

United Nations set to impose global ban on criticism of Islam
We have reported before on The United Nations (UN), a supra – national organisation made up of elitists appointed by other elitists, overreaching its mandate and trying to act as a global government, imposing policies that nobody voted for, formulated by bureaucrats that nobody voted for, for on the sovereign nations of the world.

In a press release, the ME Forum accused the British government of “attempting to silence criticism of Islamism”, adding that Robinson will shed light on the matter and his work confronting Islamist extremists during his visit to Washington. There is a lot of evidence to support the allegation, and similar behaviour from the ruling elites of Europe have been one of the drivers of resurgent nationalism. Multiculturalism does not mean giving Muslims a licence to rape.

Furthermore, the US organization has vowed to “continue to support Mr. Robinson personally, as well as the general right to publicly discuss controversial subjects – including those related to Islam – without facing legal jeopardy.”

The group has lobbied the US government to pressure the UK throughout Robinson’s recent legal proceedings, also issuing numerous statements in support of him and his activism.

Brexit has terrified ‘Brussels bubble’ – German insider

German Political Journalist Tanit Koch

The EU elite “lost faith in their own appeal and abilities” following the Brexit referendum vote and the surge in support for nationalist parties. The knee jerk response of the Brussels bubble was to try (and fail) to punish Britain for defing Brussels in the same way as they had punished small nations like Greece, Portugal and Ireland, which in their perception was the only way to prevent the EU breaking apart.

Top bureaucrats in Brussels are terrified at the prospect of the European Union breaking apart, according to a European expert. The fragility of the EU bloc since the financial crisis of 2008 is behind the punishment tactics and intransigence of negogiator Michel Barnier and other EU leaders.

Tanit Koch, now of the Transatlantic Commission on Election Integrity” (TCEI) who previously worked as editor of German magazine Bild, said that the Brexit referendum result shocked the Brussels leadership, who did not have a clue how to respond. Her comments come less than two weeks before the major EU summit this month, at which the direction of Brexit and the future of the EU could be decided.

Koch told BBC’s The World This Weekend: “In the last two years, within Europe, especially within the Brussels bubble, they have lost faith in their own appeals and their own abilities.

“They are desperate for the European Union not to implode or break apart.

“It is not so much about punishing Britain as many in this country suggest.

“It is an honest fear that if a precedent is set, that someone who leaves gets a better deal, others will follow suit.”

Koch also revealed the extent to which EU federalisation dogma has taken hold among the top rank in the business world across Europe. She spoke of a recent meeting between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and prominent German business leaders on Brexit. When Mrs Merkel insisted that the sngle market would not be compromised, raising the prospect of a no deal, the business leaders cheered.

She claimed that support of the “EU’s holy grail” meant more to the German CEOs than the huge expected hit to their businesses. The Daily Stirrer finds this a little far fetched as we know from our own sources that many German firms have lobbied for Merkel to support a reasonable deal for Britain.

Despite the apparent deadlock in recent months, a change of tone has emerged in the last week among EU leaders, after long months of them insisting none of their conditions was negotiable. Yesterday, European Council President Donald Tusk said he was confident that the EU and UK would secure a deal by the end of the year.

Words such as ‘humanitarian’ and ‘democracy’ have acquired a darker and more cynical meaning following their misappropriation to justify the invasion of sovereign nations, effect regime change and promote the spread of Western military, economic and cultural dominance around the world. The mainstream media and many human rights activists, assist these ventures by broadcasting and publishing propagandised news and by tapping into negative emotions such as fear and outrage to soften public opinion and make interference in the political affairs of sovereign states appear justified.
If you remember 2001 and the lies of western politicians and media about Saddam Hussein’s Weapons of Mass Destruction, supposedly capable of being deployed against western targets within 45 minutes, the strategy was used to swing public opinion behind the US / EU / NATO push for a war that would rid them of a maverick leader.  The public were deceived into accepting the invasion through attention-grabbing headlines crafted to abhor readers with ‘evidence’ of Saddam’s butchery and to generate strong emotional reactions which would cause people to think with their hearts rather than their heads.
One story was written by UK Labour MP Ann Clwyd, and published by the one time newspaper of record The Times  two days before the US-led Coalition of the Willing began pounding Iraq’s cities and infrastructure with carpet bombing attacks. Clwyd claimed that Saddam had demonstrated a ‘human-shredding machine’ into which adversaries were fed and reduced to fish food. It is of course a variation on a scence in the Coen brothers film Fargo in which a wood shredder is used to render a corpse unidentifiable.
The article, under the title “See men shredded, then say you don’t back war” was quoted by other newspapers and by TV and radio news and caused readers to feel revulsion towards Saddam and his regime, and made the anti-war lobby appear sympathetic to a murderous regime dubbed by one tabloid, “The Butchers Of Bagdhad,” and indifferent to the plight of the Iraqi people. The story was challenged by anti – war campaigners and no evidence of such a device has been found. And for the record Saddam was supported by more than half of Iraquis, a popularity he achieved by the simple expedient of using a significant proportion of his country’s oil revenues to provide generous welfare payments.

The Iraqi dictator was certainly no angel, but he did manage to keep down the extremist elements in his country ,and of course, his removal by the the western military powers, USA , UK and France (The FUKUS axis,) facilitated the rise of ISIS some years later. Saddam’s real crimes were well known to US and NATO intelligence services, who kept him informed about the locations of Iranian troops during the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s, in the knowledge that he would use mustard gas and sarin against them.

The US also provided Saddam with cluster bombs and helped him acquire chemical precursor agents. US-based Human Rights Watch estimated that Saddam killed at least 290,000 of his own people while in power.  However, this figure is dwarfed by the number of Iraqis believed to have died in the aftermath of the 2003 invasion, due to occupation forces, sectarian violence or ISIS – this figure is estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands, if not in excess of a million.

The psychological shock-and-awe strategy was again employed in the lead up to NATO’s bombing of Libya, as the US and UK’s on-off relationship with Gaddafi took a turn for the worse after he planned to start selling oil in dinars (a new gold-backed pan-African currency) instead of US dollars or euros, and encouraged his African neighbors to follow suit.

The release of emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server in late 2015, just as the 2016 election campaign was getting under way revealed that such a move would have strengthened African economies and led to competition between the dinar and the dollar or euro. In fact there is in progress now a move led by Russia and China to dump the US$ as reserve currency and move to a system of settling cross border trades in the vendors currency. And earlier this year, China launched the Petroyuan, a gold-backed contract for trading oil futures, on the Shanghai stock & commodity exchange. So old Mad Dog Muammar was just unfortunate enough to be ahead of the game when he had no powerful allies to back him up.

On this occasion, we were treated to the excuse that bombing Libya and supporting the anti-Gaddafi rebels, including Al-Qaeda-affiliated elements, was necessary as Gaddafi was about to commit a massacre against the people of the rebel-controlled city of Benghazi. Another emotive claim designed to mould public opinion into accepting the war affirmed that Gaddafi was giving his soldiers Viagra so they could commit mass rape. An investigation by Amnesty International found no evidence to support this allegation and revealed that on several occasions anti-Gaddafi forces in Benghazi had made false allegations or manufactured evidence of human rights violations.

Without any sense of irony American, European and British politicians and the media now try to justify censorship of news and opinion, seeking to justify this illiberal and undemocratic activity by claiming it is necessary to silence those who spread ‘fake news’. Do we really believe governments and the media are going to censor themselves? Do we believe Google are suddenly going to cease and desist from suppressing factual information and opinions critical of their cronies in Washington? Do we believe Facebook are going to remove the globalist bias from their algorithms and give equal prominence to news and ideas that do not support Zuckerberg’s world domination agenda? Do we look as though we were born yesterday?

The concern of governments and their corporate friends about fake news is that with the rise of new media real news will leak out into the public domain and expose the fact that governments have been feeding us fake news since the modern era began with the protestant reformation.
