SO MUCH FOR DEMOCRACY: Swiss referendum to END mass migration from EU is IGNORED

SWISS politicians have sparked outrage after ignoring a historic referendum vote to end freedom of movement.

A majority of voters backed a proposal to cap immigration from EU member states in the landmark poll, held two years ago.

But MPs today defied the will of the people by voting against placing any cap on EU migrants.

It came after fears the country, which is part of the European Free Trade Association, could lose its access to the single market.

Disunited Europe: EU Parliament Angry It Has No Say In Brexit Negotiations

Divisions over how to handle the Brexit are emerging within the EU, with MEPs threatening to begin their own negotiations with the UK if they are not given a say in the talks.

More Evidence “Trash Trail” March through Europe by Nonwhite Invasion Force

Further evidence has emerged of the “trail of trash” being left behind by the nonwhite invasion force as it marches through Europe, with more dramatic images and videos being shared to social media circumventing the controlled media’s blackout of the topic.

Only Russia’s RT service has dared to give any coverage to the wave of filth which the invaders have left behind.

In an article titled “Europe’s refugee crisis: Trash trail left behind by asylum seekers upsets locals,” RT told its readers that “[N]ot everyone in Europe is greeting the thousands of refugees from the Middle East and Africa with open arms. Some locals in countries like Serbia and Hungary have expressed their discontent with the chaos and piles of trash the asylum seekers leave behind.”

Rome on verge of WAR between migrants and the poor, mayor of Italy's capital warns

ROME is on the verge of war as friction grows between poor Italians and and an increasing number of migrants, the city’s mayor has warned.

Virginia Raggi told an immigration summit of European city leaders mayors need to be the first to welcome refugees with “warmth, shelter and accommodation”.

She was speaking just days after a Moroccan family was prevented from moving into a council flat given to them by the authorities after neighbours shouted: “We do not want these n*****s.”

Italy has seen the largest increase in migrant arrivals to Europe this year after the European Union (EU) made a deal with Turkey which meant migrants headed to Italy instead of Greece.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's not just Rome where frustration over immigrant policies destroying the quality of life for citizens is mounting; it's all over Europe, and it will not be too much longer before the European people rebel.

What form of rebellion this will take, I cannot say; but I can feel it coming.

SO MUCH FOR UNITY! EU IN DISARRAY AS MEPS THREATEN TO START THEIR OWN BREXIT TALKS WITH UK

Guy Verhofstadt, the EU Parliament’s chief negotiator, savaged representatives from the European Council and threatened to start up his own talks with the UK if MEPs are not given a leading role in the Brexit process.

His astonishingly blunt ultimatum will alarm European leaders and signals the start of a long and acrimonious war between the Council, which represents the interests of the individual member states, and the Parliament which speaks for the euro elite in Brussels.

Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage said the proposal showed that the EU had become “so unworkable” that Britain should ditch triggering Article 50 and instead just walk away from the troubled bloc.

The row erupted after Mr Verhofstadt accused EU Council chiefs of trying to sideline the EU parliament and hand MEPs only the most minimal role in the Brexit negotiations.

Martin Schulz said MEPs and member states are heading for a period of conflict over Brexit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like the EU is starting to implode.

‘Morally Wrong’ Not To Let EU Citizens Stay After Brexit, MPs From All Sides Tell Govt

European citizens living in Britain should be allowed to remain in the country after the Brexit process is complete, MPs from both the Leave and Remain campaigns told the government.

An expert panel composed of politicians, trade unionists and employers groups has come forward with a series of proposals on how to manage the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union without affecting the rights of current residents. But Prime Minister Theresa May is refusing to agree the status of the close-to-3 million EU nationals living in the country until the rights of Britons residing in other European states is guaranteed.

Greece faces permanent crisis as IMF warns bail-out plan 'simply not credible'

Obama Out Not With a Bang, But a Whimp

The whimpering Obama administration is not over yet. Expect more sensational CIA exploits; more demonization of Russia; more weaponizing of “moderate” Syrian “rebels”; and even the odd false flag.

Clinton’s campaign – fully supported by President Obama — spent a whopping $1.2 billion and floundered ignominiously at the US presidential election. So Obama decided that the consolation “prize” is to order the “intelligence community” – a contradiction in terms – to conduct a “full review” of how the evil Russians handed out the Big Prize to Donald Trump.

EU to extend economic sanctions on Russia after leaders meet on December 15

The European Union will extend by six months its main economic sanctions on Russia over the conflict in Ukraine after the bloc's leaders meet in Brussels on Dec. 15, diplomatic sources and officials said on Friday.

The sanctions include restrictions access to international financing, and curbs on defence and energy cooperation with Russia, which annexed the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea from Kiev in March, 2014, and went on to back a rebellion in east Ukraine.

The conflict in Ukraine's industrial east is still simmering and has claimed nearly 10,000 lives. Efforts at implementing a peace agreement, brokered by Germany and France, have stalled for nearly two years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Comedian Ron White is thoroughly correct, in his stand-up act, when he says, "You can't fix stupid"!

And right now, the EU is, collectively behaving stupidly against Russia on these sanctions, and falsely blaming it for something it never, ever did.

And I would like to politely point out to the writers of this codswallop that Russia did NOT "annex Crimea".

Apparently, real fact checking at Reuters has fallen out of favor, when it does not support the US government's narrative.

When the duly elected Ukrainian President Yanukovich was thrown under the proverbial bus by elements of George Soros, the EU, the US, and the IMF in 2014, and Poroshenko was "anointed" as President, the Crimean government and people understood that there was no longer any legitimacy in the government in Kiev.

And remember: the US's Victoria Nuland bragged, in a presentation, about the amount of money the US had spent to destabilize Ukraine:

Victoria Nuland's Admits Washington Has Spent $5 Billion to "Subvert Ukraine"

So, what the Crimeans did, in an observed free and fair election, was to ask the people of Crimean if they would like to become a part of the Russian Federation, and the people of Crimean overwhelmingly said yes.

Then, the government of Crimea petitioned the Russian Federation to become a member of that Federation, and the Russian Federation accepted this.

Peaceful self-determination is enshrined in the Charter of the UN, and that is precisely what the Crimean people did in these two steps.

The alleged "annexing" of Crimea never took place, except in the fevered, and fantasy-driven minds of those in the US government.

They and the Ukrainian government were ticked, as Crimea had been one of the "industrial engines" of Ukraine; now it is one of the "industrial engines" of Russia.

The Hidden Story of Crimea's Economic Success

So what did the US and Ukrainian government do?!? They collectively manufactured the absolute lie that Russia, somehow, annexed Ukraine, so Russia was to be punished.

Members of the EU understand this, but, to appease their American "big brother", need to treat the lie as real; this is completely, economically, and geopolitically insane, but that's the reality here.

Europe on the brink: Streets 'will become war zones' as continent descends into crisis

It comes after months of warnings from experts – including top military brasses – that massive economic issues, mass immigration, and terrorism will lead to a full-scale crisis.

They have predicted this will affect the entire continent, eventually leading to civil war on the streets.

In December 2015, one of the most apocalyptic warnings came from André Blattmann, the Swiss head of the armed forces.

Blattmann, who left his job just weeks later, said the combination of hybrid wars, the economy, and the refugee crisis would have “unforeseen dimensions”.

He then claimed social unrest was something Europe’s leaders and armies had to be prepared for.

Just weeks ago, French scholar of Islam, Gilles Kepel, told German newspaper Die Welt that the eventual goal of Islamic terrorism was not to simply murder western people in Europe.

He explained the purpose of bloody and vicious attacks on innocent people is to incite hatred among the general population of Muslims in general.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, I know; this article appears both sensationalist and apocalyptic, as is thedailystar.com's style.

but I have to wonder, looking at all the disintegration we are seeing in European countries, and the problems brought on by out of control immigration, how far fetched are these assessments, and what can European politicians can actually do to prevent this predicted "civil war" in Europe?!?

I can tell you one thing; these European leaders better be thinking far ahead, and not just to the next election, before things do go wildly out of control in Europe!

600 ‘underage’ asylum seekers in Denmark are adults: report

According to a report in Jyllands-Posten, DIS suspected that roughly 800 asylum seekers were lying about their age and thus asked the University of Copenhagen's Department of Forensic Medicine (Retsmedicinsk Institut) to run tests to verify just how old the asylum seekers really are.

Using X-rays of their teeth and finger bones, the institute concluded that 74 percent of those tested – or around 600 individuals – are actually adults.

£70,000 Raised In Crowdfunding For New Case Against Brexit

A fresh legal bid initiated by a British barrister is to be taken to an Irish court after thousands supported his case via a crowdfunding platform in an effort to derail Brexit.

The new legal challenge to the results of the British referendum is to be taken to Ireland’s High Court, which is expected to decide whether Article 50 – the one that sets out the process of Britain’s withdrawal from the EU – is revocable once it is activated. The court is also set to rule on whether leaving the EU means automatically leaving the European Economic Area.

As you may recall, Pope Benedict XVI lifted Catholic clergyman Richard Williamson's excommunication in 2009, causing an international media firestorm among the establishment, because Williamson had given a TV interview that same week scoffing at the 'Zyklon B gas chamber' myth. Here Williamson weighs in on the election of Donald J. Trump. He begins, "The essential thing to say about the election last month of Donald Trump as the next President of the United States is that it is a God-given reprieve from years and years of liberal government, but unless the American people themselves turn back seriously to Almighty God, then the reprieve will be swept away by a return of the liberals in force to destroy the United States once and for all, as Hilary Clinton would have done, had she been elected."

'There are big problems' Outrage as migrant rapes soar by 133% – in just ONE YEAR

The number of sexual assaults committed by migrants living in Austria rose by a staggering 133 per cent in 2016, figures obtained by The Freedom Party of Austria from the Ministry of the Interior have revealed.

Austrian interior minister Wolfgang Sobotka said the chilling increase was deeply worrying, as it was a sharp rise on last year when 39 migrants were identified as suspects.

By September, at least 91 refugees had been confirmed as suspects in sexual assaults.

The majority of suspects were originally from Afghanistan - which had an increase from 16 to 47 suspects within one year.

According to the Ministry of the Interior, a further 438 Austrians were involved in other sexual assaults.

In his first major speech since resigning at the Tory leader, Cameron said: “I see more trouble ahead… I wonder how long it can last.

“Some countries have seen decades of lost growth - those countries have a single currency but they don’t have a single fiscal system, a fiscal tax system. It creates bigger differences.”

“You in the United States have ways to make sure that if you have a bad year you pay less in taxes and offset federal programmes. There are no such arrangements in Europe.”

There is an economic theory that I have not tried to confirm, but which I have read in several books: that in the history of humanity, when a State saw that its accounts were not in good shape, waged war to balance its budget. That is, it is one of the easiest ways to produce wealth. Certainly, the price is very high: blood."

Italians went to the polls on Sunday and voted down Prime Minister Renzi’s proposed changes that would have weakened the constitution, further eroded once proud sovereignty, and put nooses around Italian necks.

But Italy rejected its establishment government’s demands for more central control, and pushed anti-establishment party FSM to the brink of power. PM Renzi lost by a huge margin – 20 percentage points – and has been forced to resign.

France: Decomposing In Front Of Our Eyes

Four officers were injured (two badly burned) when around 15 "youths" (Muslim gang-members) swarmed their cars and hurled rocks and firebombs at them. Police were aggrieved when the minister of interior called the attackers "little wild ones." Police and opposition politicians replied that the attackers were not "little wild ones but criminals who attacked police to kill."

Two students at a vocational training school in Calais attacked a teacher, and one fractured the teacher's jaw and several teeth -- because the teacher had asked one of the students to get back to work.

"This is a warning. These young people did not attack the school by chance; they wanted to attack the institution, to attack the State." — Yacine, 21, a student at the University of Paris II.

The riot, which lasted for four nights, broke out after the arrest of a driver who did not stop when asked to by a policeman.

Can Trump Leash His Pentagon ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis?

‘Mad Dog’ Mattis and the Spirit of Trumpism

When it comes to foreign policy, the incoming Trump administration displays a split personality.

Mattis exemplifies the dual nature of the new administration.
This was readily apparent during the campaign, when, on the one hand, Donald Trump told us we were lied into the Iraq war, that NATO is “obsolete,” and that we have no business supporting regime change in Syria – and, on the other hand, he declared that he would crush ISIS, that it was a mistake to leave Iraq, and that we have to “rebuild our military,” as if we don’t already spend as much as the top ten defense spenders.

Russia pipeline is security 'threat', US diplomat says

Russia’s Nord Stream II gas pipeline is a threat to European security, a US diplomat has said, amid calls for the European Commission to intervene.
Adam Shub, the deputy US ambassador to the EU, in Brussels on Tuesday (6 December), mentioned the Russian-German project amid other instruments he said Russia was using to “create division” in Europe and to erode “shared transatlantic values”.

EU Commission has stalled on appeals for a legal assessment.

He said the armed conflict in Ukraine was “just the front line” in the “malign action”, which extended also to the EU and the Western Balkans.

“There are [Russian] attempts to influence the policy debate, support for political parties, we know that, in the European Parliament, for NGOs … attempts to acquire assets on the energy front, Nord Stream - these are threats to Europe and to transatlantic security”, he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Shub's codswallop, in denouncing Russia for doing everything the US government does, in terms of providing loans, supporting and attempting to influence various candidates and organisations who echo the US government narrative, demonstrates that the US government has, in basketball parlance, "got no game", in terms of being able to undo this deal.

This deal makes absolute sense for the German government and the German people, in order to keep fuel costs low.

In his petulant and sophomoric rant at the Ceps think tank conference, Shub comes off as almost thoroughly unhinged in his excoriating criticism of the deal, yet offers absolutely no concrete suggestions of what the German government "SHOULD" do, to get a better deal elsewhere.

And I would politely suggest to Mr. Shub that after last year's revelations of the fact that the US was spying on Angela Merkel and her ministers, neither she, nor any potential successor, is going to be very enthusiastic about listening to ANYTHING the US government has to say.

Italian Government Prepares To Nationalize Monte Paschi

The wait is almost over.

After two previous taxpayer funded bailouts, and nearly five months of foreplay since the third largest Italian bank failed the latest European stress test at the end of July, in which the Italian government in September vow that "bailout for Italian banks has been 'absolutely' ruled out", a third bailout, as we previewed earlier today, is now imminent.

According to Reuters, which cites two sources, Italy is preparing to take a €2 billion controlling stake in Monte Paschi as the bank's hopes of a private funding rescue have faded after a fruitless five month search to secure an anchor investor, following Prime Minister Matteo Renzi's decision to quit.

UK Will Not Be Allowed Any Cherrypicking Over Brexit: Merkel

German Chancellor Angela Merkel says Britain will not be given much leeway to “cherry pick” the parts of the European Union it prefers in the Brexit negotiations without accepting its four basic freedoms.

“We will not allow any cherrypicking,” Merkel said at a meeting of her Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party members in the German western city of Essen on Tuesday.

Dutch reject calls to cease funding Palestinian groups

The Dutch government has rejected calls to cease funding organizations that advocate a boycott of Israel.

In June this year, NGO Monitor – a lobby group with close ties to the Israeli political and military establishments claimed it had scored a significant victory in the Netherlands.

NGO Monitor was referring to a decision made by the Dutch parliament that a review should be undertaken of the country’s aid to organizations supporting the Palestinian-led boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement. According to NGO Monitor, the parliament’s vote was the result of briefings that the lobby group had provided on how “radical” activists were engaged in the “demonization” of Israel.

The government in The Hague has now made it clear, however, that it will not bar BDS advocates from receiving aid.

He warned his audience that they would do this "While you people pay to be propagandized" and said "They are still depending upon your gullibility. They are still banking upon your unintelligence, as they say, to lead you like sheep to the slaughter tomorrow, as they did your fathers and brothers yesterday. For oh, they are ingenious!"

Italy Moves Closer to a BREXIT – 5 Star Movement Poised to Challenge for Leadership Role

In yet another blow to center-left politics, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi has announced his intention to resign following a dramatic voter rejection of his constitutional reforms package.

renziThis unexpected shift in Italian politics could very well trigger calls for Italy to ‘rethink’ its relationship with Brussels.

If Renzi has his resignation accepted, then the government would be handed over to a ‘care taker’ leader until the next General Election scheduled for 2018, or until a snap election is called. Before any snap election can be called, elite bureaucrats are furiously trying to rewrite Italy’s election laws allegedly to keep “Far Right” parties, like the surging Northern League out of power, but in reality these desperate measures are designed to prevent widely popular insurgent parties like 5 Star from gaining a majority in Parliament.

Rule By Distant Strangers

The purpose of the European project, at least the purpose sold to the public, was to provide long-term stability to the continent, particularly economic stability. The lesson of the first fifty years of the 20th century was that nationalist competition among states led to economic instability and war. Therefore, cooperation among the nations of Europe on economic matters, as well as a common defense, would keep the peace and allow all nations to prosper together, as one continent.

Will Iran be the target of the Trump regime?

Hopefully someone will convince Donald Trump that the real answer to eliminating the “Iranian threat” is not war.

One of the most discouraging aspects of the filling out of the Donald Trump cabinet is the array of Iran haters that seem to be lining up in the foreign policy and national security areas.Trump has been personally advocating sensible policies relating to Russia and Syria but he appears to have gone off the rails regarding Iran, which just might be attributed to those who are giving him advice.

There is not an America First-bone in any of them, and they would work against your often-stated goal of reforming U.S. foreign policy in the direction the Founders intended, and ending the influence of the passions of Neoconservatives and Israel Firsters for involving the republic in endless, unnecessary wars.

Induced panic is a tool used to scare the peasants into additional submission. The most obvious method will be a major economic and monetary implosion designed to create fear so that their revered and lauded interdependency necessitates another surrender of national sovereignty.

'Footloose' Comes To Brussels - Europe Unleashes "Dance Tax"

"Everybody cut loose".. but be prepared to pay for it in Europe. As Martin Armstrong notes, if you dance in a bar in Brussels, you must pay a tax!

The patrons of Bonnefooi, a cafe in the center of Brussels, last week received a visit from a City inspector.

The inspector asked them to pay the “tax dance.” Yes you read correctly. Brussels has a “dancing tax” written in the 50´s and as the government needs money, they have “revitalized” this tax since 2014.

For every customer who dances in a bar the owner has to pay €0.40 per night. They sent incognito civil servants to uphold this law.

Elites are fighting to keep us in the EU and undermine the will of the people

DURING the EU referendum David Cameron put out an official leaflet that could hardly be more explicit about the consequences of the vote: “This is your decision. The Government will implement what you decide.”

Yet much of the political establishment has refused to accept the result. Bristling with contempt for democracy these Remoaners are doing everything in their considerable power to thwart Brexit. The judiciary, media and Parliament are cynically exploited in their ruthless campaign of obstruction against the popular will.

The latest obstacle in the path to British freedom is the Supreme Court, which today begins its hearing to decide if the Government has to seek parliamentary approval before it can trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, the clause that signals the start of withdrawal from the EU.

The disintegration of Europe begins: Renzi ally says mission to 'relaunch' EU has failed

THE DISINTEGRATION of the EU has begun, the Italian minister for European affairs has said.

Sandro Gozi has warned Italy now faces a severe period of unrest and uncertainty after Prime Minister Matteo Renzi lost a referendum on proposed constitutional changes.

Mr Gozi, a close ally of Mr Renzi, who has announced his resignation as promised following the vote, said Brexit and now the Italy vote had dramatically weakened the EU.

He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “I think that the beginning of European disintegration has started with Brexit.

“It is up to the other 27 governments to relaunch Europe.

“That was our policy, that was our goal as the Renzi government.

“It is clear that now Europe loses a major political actor to its relaunch.”

NO SOFT BREXIT: UK 'will scoop extra £20billion a year' when it quits EU single market

THE UK will scoop at least an extra £20 billion a year in tax revenues and investment when it quits the European single market a new report has revealed.

The analysis by the Global Britain thinktank has sunk claims made by Remoaners that Britain needs to stay in the single market in what they have dubbed a “soft Brexit”.

The boost to the UK’s finances would be on top of the net £10 billion a year contribution the UK will get back by leaving the EU as well as the new revenues generated by being free to negotiate new trade deals.

It also reveals that leaving the single market will bring a renaissance in high paid jobs in Britain and force companies to start paying to train people in Britain.

All Eyes On Monte Paschi, Whose Bailout Is Now In Doubt, And Italian Bank Sector Contagion

As we noted last night, when we previewed the virtually assured "No" vote, we said that "a strong “No” vote will cause Prime Minister Renzi to resign, leading to political instability in Italy. Furthermore, a "No" vote is expected to kill a long-running attempt to rescue Italy's third largest and oldest bank, Monte dei Paschi, which has been desperate for a private sector bailout ever since it failed this summer's ECB stress test to avoid broader banking sector contagion; a failure of Monte Paschi will likely spark a fresh eurozone banking crisis, and prompt the ECB to get involved again (as it warned it would do), in a redux of what happened after the Brexit vote."

Italians were voting on Sunday in a referendum on constitutional reform that will decide the political future of Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, who has promised to resign if he loses.

About 51 million Italians are eligible to vote on Renzi's plan to drastically reduce the role of the upper house Senate and claw back powers from regional authorities.

By noon, 20 percent of citizens had voted, the Interior Ministry said, more than the 17 percent who had cast ballots by the same time in May 2014 for the European Parliament election.
