Turkey Notifies NATO Of Imminent Massive Invasion Of Syria To Fight Kurds

Turkey is poised for an imminent massive ground invasion of Northern Syria to quash Kurdish militia groups currently holding Afrin near the Turkish border. Multiple regional outlets have reported a build-up of forces that could constitute the largest external intervening force thus far in the entirety of the Syrian war.

According to Middle East based Al-Sura News, Turkey's military build-up currently underway includes special forces troops, Army units, Turkish-backed Syrian Rebels and Turkey's air force. The Kurdish YPG/J (People's Protection Units) has held Afrin since the Syrian government withdrew from the area in 2012, which constitutes the western-most part of the self-declared Rojava autonomous Kurdish zone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF I were a bookie in Vegas, I don't know what odds of war breaking out between Turkey and Syria were, but I wouldn't bet against it starting within the next 24- 48 hours.

US FORCING EUROPE TO ABANDON RUSSIAN GAS

US forcing Europe to abandon Russian gas & buy more expensive American LNG - Lavrov

The United States is afraid of fair competition in the energy sector, and is hampering the implementation of the Russian Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project, according to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

"There is reprisal in the energy sector against North Stream 2. It is the US which is calling it politicized, leading to a split in Europe, and the strangling of Ukraine,” he said at a press conference on Monday.

“Washington clearly forces Europeans to abandon Nord Stream 2, despite the fact that gas deliveries to Germany via the pipeline could be 2,000km shorter than through Ukraine, and the cost of transit could be halved,” said the Russian diplomat.

Europeans “are being forced to buy much more expensive liquefied gas from the United States instead of Russian gas,” Lavrov added.

Berlin Fears a Devastating Wave of Migrants Amid EU Reform Plans

The European Parliament plans to introduce amendments to the so-called Dublin Regulation, which might result in a growing influx of migrants to Germany, German magazine Der Spiegel reported.

The Dublin Regulation provides for asylum seekers to register in the first EU state they arrive in, with the country then being responsible for processing the application.

However, if the proposed changes are approved, then responsibility for the asylum process could be transferred from the state of arrival to the EU country where the applicant's relatives live.

Kinnock in the firing line of investigation into Brussels fraud claims

Neil Kinnock, the European Commission vice-president, and another commissioner could "have their heads on the block", a senior MEP warned yesterday on the eve of crucial findings from an EU fraud inquiry.

Tonight, a chosen few MEPs are allowed into a sealed room to view at least two highly sensitive reports on Eurostat, the EU's statistical agency. Revelations that up to €920,000 (£638,000) of cash, generated by Eurostat, was funnelled into unofficial slush funds have provoked the most serious scandal to hit the European Commission president, Romano Prodi.

'LAGGING BEHIND': EU INVESTS $1.2BN IN SUPERCOMPUTERS TO COMPETE WITH CHINA, US

The EU says it is "behind" when it comes to supercomputers, and plans to invest $1.2 billion in at least four of the machines. The move is seen as an effort to play catch-up with countries including China and the US.
In a European Commission press release on Thursday, the Commission's Vice President for the Digital Single Market Andrus Ansip said the EU is "lagging behind" when it comes to supercomputers.

"We do not have any supercomputers in the world's top ten," he said.

To fix that problem, the commission plans to use €1 billion ($1.2 billion) of public funding to invest in at least four supercomputers by 2020. Of that amount, $589 million will come from the EU. A similar amount will come from individual member states and "associated countries" that sign up for the project. "Private members of the initiative would also add in-kind contributions," the release states.

Want stability in the Balkans? Then bring back Yugoslavia

The influential US think-tank the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) has the Balkans on its conflict prevention list in its recently published 2018 survey.
However the idea, promoted by the CFR, that the US is the country that can help preserve ‘peace and stability‘ needs to be challenged – as it is the US and its closest NATO allies themselves who are actually responsible for many of the problems currently afflicting the region.

Time For Hungrexit: PM Orban Opposes Mass Immigration In Hungary, Attacks Soros In German Press

By Brandon Turbeville

Viktor Orban has caused shockwaves amongst the EU and the European establishment in recent years and has subsequently drawn the wrath of that establishment, resulting in an attempted color revolution in Hungary. Orban survived that attempt, however, and is continuing to “trigger” the EU with his refusal to destroy his country and culture with mass immigration and his open condemnation of George Soros and the destabilization empire Soros has maintained in Eastern Europe for decades...

Classical Liberalism Strikes Out

Is the Trump presidency an example of liberalism’s decay, or a last gasp to save the system?

We can see how the attraction for a strong, blustering, iconoclastic leader would arise in this context. The appeal of Trump arose from the pervasive sense of helplessness by a broad swath of Americans, especially those who have suffered most from the dissolution of families, churches, communities, and a range of constitutive bonds. On the one hand, I see the effort to exert some control over our destiny – by demanding an economy that works for average citizens, by insisting that a national culture amount to more than borderless non-judgmentalism, and rejecting the “political correctness” accompanying a sexual revolution whose wreckage is accumulating exponentially – as a “last gasp,” as you put it, and even an admirable one.

‘We won’t pay any more!’ Austrian minister RAGES at EU as Brexit prompts budget DILEMMA

As member states continue to argue about how to plug the gap left by Britain’s impending exit from the EU, Austria's Chancellery Minister Gernot Blümel said the bloc must improve productivity and streamline its goals, rather than simply demand more money from the EU27.

Mr Blümel, who is responsible for EU agendas for the upcoming budget, does not want Austria to have to spend more to cover the finical gap left by Britain’s exit.

He said: "The EU will have to concentrate on fewer tasks, but will have to carry them out more efficiently, for example in terms of security and external border management.

And the passports were not only for businessmen themselves, but also members of their families.

Merkel Exposed: Germany, France Reeling Under Refugees' Crime Waves, Welfare Costs

A new German study, based on data that Angela Merkel’s government had kept hidden, has confirmed statistically what Merkel’s opponents have charged: The refugee tsunami to which Merkel opened Germany’s (and all of Europe’s) gates in 2015-2016, has also brought a huge crime wave. If this information had been allowed to reach German voters before last September’s federal elections, media darling Merkel likely would not have won her fourth term as chancellor. Merkel and her Left allies have always denied the refugee-asylee-migrant crime connection. Now that the facts are out (at least a small fraction — most of the data is still restricted) — the Left is trying to spin the evidence to argue for more Muslim migrants and more migrant benefits. Incredible?

The European Union could face a massive influx of some 10 million refugees from Africa in the coming years if it does not change its policy, Czech President Milos Zeman has claimed in an interview with a local TV channel.

Zeman, known for his fierce anti-immigration stance, once again blasted Brussels for its migration guidelines in an interview with the Prague-based Barrandov TV channel Thursday.

“If the European Union does not reach the courage to strengthen its external borders, for which it constantly chatters but does nothing, we will have 10 million refugees [from Africa] in the course of several years,” Zeman stated.

EU trade war: Brussels demands €1.4BILLION from Russia after Putin bans imports of EU PORK

The bloc will make the case for financial compensation to a World Trade Organisation arbitration panel after the trade regulator ruled the bacon ban was illegal in 2017.

It is asking for €1.4 billion in compensation, which would be collected by withdrawing tariff reductions Brussels granted to Russia under WTO rules.

The amount is equal to the yearly volume of pork exports to Russia prior to the trade embargo.

Russia has already rejected the idea of paying compensation to the EU.

‘Accept the Will of the People on Migration, Culture, or Hit the Road’: Orbán Tells Europe’s Leaders

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said that Europeans are “asserting their will” by supporting leaders who reject mass migration and support Christian foundations, and gave a warning to politicians who deny the “natural order of democracy”.

The conservative Fidesz party leader told Kossuth Radio’s listeners that 2.3 million Hungarians took part in the national consultation against the George Soros-backed pro-mass migration plan, and Mr. Orbán now intends to spend the next few months convincing his opponents that Europe is right to protect her borders and her culture.

Asked by the 180 Minutes host what made him think that after two years, since the migrant crisis, progressive leaders would listen now, Mr. Orbán said: “Because in the meantime elections are being held in Europe.”
