Over 80 people have been injured in clashes with riot police in Barcelona and elsewhere across Catalonia, as angry protesters denounced the arrest of former separatist leader Carles Puigdemont in Germany earlier on Sunday.

Police reportedly fired warning shots and bludgeoned protesters as eggs, cans and glass bottles were thrown from the crowd at the officers.

‘We may forgive, but won’t forget’: Serbia’s commemoration of NATO bombing victims ignored by West

Thousands of Serbs honored the victims of the 1999 NATO bombings with a commemoration on Saturday, attended by Serbian president and many officials, including the Russian envoy, but with a glaring absence of Western diplomats.
The main commemorative event, held under the slogan “We will forgive, if we can, we will not forget while alive,” took place in the Southern town of Aleksinac which suffered heavily in the 1999 US-led NATO campaign.

Darkness and silence fell over the entire city center as the ceremony, attended by President Aleksandar Vucic and his cabinet ministers, opened with deafening sounds of air alarm sirens. At least 3,000 people gathered in front of the stage and the ruins of a building destroyed in NATO bombing, according to Sputnik’s correspondent.

WATCH Taxi Drivers March in Protest Against Uber Returning to Barcelona

In December 2014, US-based Uber was suspended in Spain after numerous protests and complaints from the country's taxi sector and now the company plans to make a comeback to Barcelona, the Catalan capital with a great tourist influx.

Barcelona's taxi drivers took to the streets to protest against plans of Uber, a company which links drivers to people via a smartphone app, to restore its service in the city. Taxi drivers fear that Uber services are threaten their jobs, as such ride-hailing companies create unfair competition in the sector.

Hungary Warns of ‘Global Government’ That Will ‘Strip People of Religious, National, Family Identities’

Speaker of the Hungarian National Assembly László Kövér has warned in a conference speech that “both ethnic majorities and minorities” are facing the same threat: the possibility of “global government”.
In his address at a conference Monday, the founding member of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s conservative Fidesz party stated that “the new technique and ideology of government is aimed at creating (societies) without an identity”.

Referring to proponents of global governance as “potential colonists”, Mr. Kövér said: “They want to strip people of their religious, national, family, and even sexual identities so that they are no longer able to recognise, express or enforce their own interests.”

Hungary has been at the forefront of the battle against the erosion of the nation-state and conservative values with Prime Minister Orbán, vowing last month to put “Hungary first” and fight those within the European Union who “want to change the Christian identity of Hungary and Europe”.

Berlusconi Proposes Coalition Between Right-Wingers and 5-Star Which Could ‘Pierce Brussels Through the Heart’

Four-time prime minister Silvio Berlusconi has suggested Italy’s centre-right coalition team up with the populist Five-Star Movement (M5S) to form a government which would send shockwaves through the European Union.
The 81-year-old Forza Italia leader last held office himself in 2011, when he was forced out by an EU-directed coup for failing to co-operate with the bloc’s leading figures on the Eurozone crisis.

His party formed a coalition with Matteo Salvini’s nationalist Lega party — formerly Lega Nord, or the Northern League — and the smaller Brothers of Italy party ahead of the Italian elections in early March, and came in first place, with Salvini’s outfit leading the pack.

However, the alliance did not win a large enough share of the vote to form a majority government, and Berlusconi is seeking to establish whether a programme of government can be arranged with the anti-establishment M5S — now Italy’s single-largest party by far.

U.S. steel tariffs meet barrage of criticism at WTO

- U.S. President Donald Trump’s steel and aluminum tariffs met a barrage of criticism at a World Trade Organization meeting on Friday, as the European Union, Japan, Australia and others joined a debate started by China and Russia.

The EU representative dismissed U.S. assertions that the steps were needed to protect national security, saying Washington was just trying to support its industry, a Geneva trade official said.

WTO Director-General Roberto Azevedo said it was positive to see the discussion happening within the WTO’s walls, since taking disputes outside greatly increased “the risk of escalation in a confrontation that will have no winners”.

“Disrupting trade flows will jeopardize the global economy at a time when economic recovery, though fragile, has been increasingly evident around the world,” he said in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What concerns me deeply here is the ability of trade wars to escalate into actual shooting wars; I am hoping like heck that this doesn't happen wit either Russia or China.

Despite Supporting UK in Skripal Case, EU Didn't Hurry to See 'Smoking Gun'

While UK Prime Minister Theresa May has urged EU leaders to recognize Russia as the perpetrator in the alleged attack on former spy Sergei Skripal, her allies in Brussels appear to be reluctant to judge the matter before receiving the evidence.

It seems that even European allies realize that the United Kingdom was quick to accuse Russia of Skripal’s poisoning, albeit they did approve May’s statement that it was “highly likely” Russia was responsible for the attack and said that there was no "plausible alternative explanation."

The EU has also recalled its ambassador to Russia Markus Ederer for consultations in Brussels. Speaking on the envoy's recall at a summit in Brussels on Friday, President of EU Commission Donald Tusk said it was an "extraordinary measure," which had never been taken before.

'Part of Society': Giant Mosque Gets Green Light in 'Turbulent' Swedish Town

While local Muslims see it as a confirmation of being part of Swedish society, long-time residents launched a petition to prevent the construction in a quiet residential area as a countermeasure, but failed.

A large mosque with space for 500 worshippers has been given the green light in the Swedish township of Alvesta with only about 8,000 inhabitants, despite protests from the locals, the national broadcaster SVT reported.

The organization Alliance Caucasus, which is behind the SEK 15 million ($1.85 million) project bought the plot of land in 2016. This week, after a long debate, involving petitions from protesting locals, the organization received a building permit.

Hungarian Gov't: Soros Has Employed 2,000 People to Meddle in Our Elections

The Hungarian government has repeatedly clashed with the EU over their contrasting stances on migration and the resettlement of refugees within the union. Businessman and philanthropist George Soros has also locked horns with Hungary, and the government once again accused him of meddling in the country’s affairs to suit his pro-migrant agenda.

Government spokesperson Zoltán Kovács warned that Soros is using his vast resources to meddle in the upcoming Hungarian parliamentary elections, which are scheduled to run on April 8, 2018.

He insisted that Soros wants to remove the ruling anti-immigrant Fidesz party and its satellite party — the Christian Democratic People's Party – which it formed a coalition with in 2014.

EU recalls Russia envoy, backs UK belief Moscow ‘highly likely’ responsible for Skripal poisoning

EU leaders see “no plausible alternative explanation” for the Skripal poisoning and are set to recall their ambassador to Russia for consultations, pressured by the UK to hold the Kremlin responsible for it without due process.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Great Britain and the EU are trying to "Iraq" Russia, building a case that Russia has chemical weapons of mass destruction and must be attacked now to stop Russia from using chemical weapons on ... someone.

My concern here is that for this to succeed, there will have to be a false-flag chemical weapons attack on a wide scale, to be blamed on Russia.

Austria SCRAPS smoking ban in bars and restaurants to defend 'freedom of choice'

Austrian Parliament yesterday voted to scrap an impending ban on smoking on bars and restaurants across the country.

During a turbulent session in parliament, opposition MPs accused the government of 'voting for death' and betraying Austrian children.

The blanket ban, enforced by the previous government, was due to come into effect in May and would bring Austria more into line with the UK and fellow European Union countries, which have far stricter smoke-free legislation.

But the decision, championed by the coalition government, means Austria will remain one of the few dwindling number of countries where smoking in public spaces is legal.

EU president Jean-Claude Juncker congratulates Putin on re-election and calls for positive relations with Russia

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has wished Vladimir Putin “every success” and congratulated him on his re-election, breaking ranks as other countries call for answers following the Salisbury poisoning.

In a letter to the Russian president Mr Juncker said he had always argued that “positive relations between the European Union and the Russian Federation are crucial to the security of our continent”.

The EU chief’s warm message comes a day after EU leaders at the European Council called on Russia to hand over details of its alleged nerve agent programme to help with the investigation into the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal, which the British government says it is certain Russia was behind.

The Euro Area's Deepening Political Divide

Two European elections – in Germany on 24 September 2017 and Italy on 4 March 2018 – warn that the peoples of Europe are drifting apart. Much of the recent deepening of these divisions can be traced to Europe’s single currency, the euro. This column argues that the political divide in Europe may now be hard to roll back absent a shift in focus to national priorities that pay urgent attention to the needs of those being left behind.

EU proposes new digital tax for US tech giants such as Google, Facebook and Amazon

The special tax is the latest measure by the 28-nation European Union to rein in Silicon Valley giants and could further embitter the bad-tempered trade row pitting the EU against US President Donald Trump.

European Union officials unveiled Wednesday proposals for the levy which could heap more problems on Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook after revelations over misused data of 50 million users shocked the world.

EU Economics Affairs Commissioner Pierre Moscovici presented his proposals in Brussels aimed at recovering billions of euros from mainly US multinationals that shift earnings around Europe to pay lower tax rates.

This current legal vacuum is creating a serious shortfall in the public revenue of our member states,' France's Moscovici told a press conference in Brussels.

'We estimate this could generate at least five billion euros a year if the tax is imposed at three percent.'

Blairite Labour MPs ‘Plot New Pro-EU Party’ with Lib Dems and Tory Europhiles

Senior Labour MPs opposed to Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership have been meeting with the Liberal Democrats in secret talks about setting up a “centrist” pro-Brussels party, sources have claimed.

The Labour leader’s caution over blaming Russia for the Salisbury poisoning was a “watershed moment” that “has caused a number of people to question why we are in this party”, a former member of the Shadow Cabinet told The Times.

Hoping to launch a new party in Spring 2019 after Brexit, sources present at the meetings said ‘Start Again’ has emerged as its working title out of a range of possible names, including Back Together, the Democrats, and Regain.

Politicians involved in the talks include past Labour leadership candidate Chuka Umunna, former shadow chancellor Chris Leslie, and Anna Soubry, the arch-globalist Tory MP who claimed it was a “myth” that mass migration put pressure on public services because migrants are “fit young men”.

‘Caught Red Handed’: Soros-Funded Body Lobbying Germany to Put Pressure on Hungary

The head of a Soros-funded organisation described how his group lobbies Germany to pressure Hungary into abandoning its NGO transparency law.

Balázs Dénes detailed how the Civil Liberties Union for Europe, supported by George Soros’s Open Society Foundations (OSF), attempts to influence Germany via its links to think tanks close to the German government, according to recordings obtained by The Jerusalem Post.

Dénes described his main target as Hungary’s NGO transparency law which seeks for greater transparency of foreign-funded bodies in the country — directly affecting Soros’s open borders charities and pressure groups.

“We work very strongly. I’m having a meeting this week with a think tank, an organisation which is influencing the German government and the Foreign Ministry of Germany, and I’m bringing them copies of the law, just translated from Hungarian, and I’m explaining [to] them what they can do against it,” Dénes is reported to have said.

The journalists found out that sanctions were supposed to be introduced last week, but decided to wait for the results of the presidential election first. The head of the Polish government, Mateusz Moravetski, has already held talks on this topic with British Prime Minister Theresa May. At the moment, Warsaw insists on sanctions against Russia at the level of the European Union, but is also ready for independent action.

39 Arrests in Crackdown on Albanian Crime Rings Facilitating Illegal Immigration

Albania police have arrested 39 people in a crackdown on crime rings illegally sending about 1,000 Albanians to Britain, the United States and Canada.
Police chief Ardi Veliu said Saturday that, after months of an international investigation, authorities have identified seven criminal structures in ten countries in Europe and overseas that helped Albanians emigrate illegally by “falsifying travel and identity documents of European Union countries.”

Each had paid from $9,750 to $30,000 for the forgeries.

In addition to those arrested, 12 people are still at large, including two Bulgarians. Police have also confiscated computers, cellphones, vehicles, cash, different documents and weapons in the case.

Fighting organized crime and illegal trafficking remain key challenges for Albania, a NATO member since 2009 which is hoping to launch EU membership negotiations this year.

UK conspiracy of silence – rape gangs exposed – truth teller’s Twitter account shut down

For MANY years, law enforcement in the UK has studiously ignored and rejected young girls’ claims of serial rape by gangs.

These gangs “groom” the girls with drugs and alcohol—and eventually physical coercion. Sometimes the girls are trafficked to other locations in the country where they are preyed on and raped.

A major reason the police have been sweeping these crimes under the rug? Political correctness. Fear of being labeled racist. Because…

Well, here is what just happened to Tommy Robinson (twitter), as Breitbart reports:

“The controversial activist Tommy Robinson has been suspended from Twitter for quoting research which found that nearly 90 per cent of convicted grooming gang members in the UK are Muslim.”

EU powers propose new Iran sanctions to keep Trump in nuclear deal

France, Germany and the UK have proposed new sanctions targeting Iran in an apparent attempt to keep the US within the 2015 nuclear agreement with Tehran. New restrictions would target Iran’s missile program and activity in Syria.

The sanctions would be particularly imposed against Iranian nationals involved in the development of the country’s ballistic missile progam, Reuters reported, citing a document it obtained.

"We will therefore be circulating in the coming days a list of persons and entities that we believe should be targeted in view of their publicly demonstrated roles," the document said, referring to the people involved in the Iranian missile program and support of the Syrian government, as reported by Reuters.

EU Powers Push Iran Sanctions to Placate Trump

With the deadline President Trump’s ultimatum to “fix” the Iran nuclear deal rapidly approaching, EU parties to the deal Britain, France, and Germany are proposing new sanctions against Iran. The move is seen as an attempt to keep Trump satisfied.

The new sanctions proposed are EU-wide sanctions that would target Iran for conducting missile tests, something President Trump has complained about. Getting the sanctions imposed would require unanimous EU approval.

The assumption among the EU nations is that the sanctions would show President Trump that there are alternative ways of going after Iran that don’t involve withdrawing from the P5+1 nuclear deal, and that this will convince Trump that such actions are continuing during the deal.

Like Trump, EU aids theft of Jerusalem

The West’s policies on Palestine can be divided into two broad categories: the mindless and the misleading.

By deciding to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Donald Trump has behaved in a mindless manner. The most plausible explanation for why the US president did so is that acting like a pyromaniac endears him to his pro-Israel campaign bankroller Sheldon Adelson and to an extremist – mainly Christian – constituency.

Despite his propensity for telling lies, Trump has been more honest on this particular dossier than the European Union and its robotic representatives. They claim to be pursuing peace and a two-state solution, while aiding Israeli authorities that have no interest in either objective.

Scientific research has been accorded a high priority in cooperation between Israel and the EU. Israel is an active participant in Horizon 2020, an EU scheme aimed at encouraging innovation, which has been earmarked almost $100 billion over a seven-year period.

Roughly 220 miles of ocean separates Sweden from the heavily militarized Russian port of Kaliningrad. The country’s long, narrow shape leaves it vulnerable to air assault from multiple sides. And Sweden, along with neighboring Finland, are in the unique position as the only non-NATO aligned nations on the Baltic Sea.

Hence, the nation spent the Cold War years preparing to fend for itself against a great power invasion, drawing up plans for how to mobilize the entirety of the civilian population and infrastructure to defend its territory. And then the Soviet Union collapsed, a new era of peace dawned and those plans were left to fall fallow.

Now, Sweden is looking to change that.

SLOVAK PRIME MINISTER RESIGNS AFTER MURDER OF JOURNALIST KUCIAK AND FIANCÉE

Slovak Prime Minister Robert Rico resigned Thursday after widespread outrage in reaction to the murder of a journalist who reported on potential links between organized crime and government officials.

“Today I have offered my resignation to the president of the republic,” Fico told reporters. “If the president accepts it, I am ready to resign tomorrow.”

The journalist, 27-year-old Jan Kuciak, and his fiancée, Martina Kušnírová, were found shot to death in Kuciak’s apartment on February 26.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For Rico to resign so abruptly, rather than cling on to power, may hint that he already knew of massive improprieties in the Slovakian government, and wanted to distance himself from it; but I have to reserve judgement here until all the facts are truly known.

Swedish Lady on Trial for Saying Migrants 'Drop IQ to Goldfish Level' - Report

Recently, several reports have indicated falling IQs in Scandinavia, leaving the public to ponder the implications of it. A far less scientific speculation by a Swedish lady who argued that continued immigration would result in a further drop of intelligence has, however, landed her in court.

A 65-year-old woman from the city of Jönköping has been charged with inciting hatred against a certain group of people for claiming that continued immigration will lead to lower IQ levels in the Nordic country, Swedish Radio reported.

"If it continues this way, the intelligence in Sweden will reach goldfish levels," the woman was quoted as writing in one of her posts in the Facebook group Stoppa maktmissbruket ("Stop the abuse of power").

Has Europe really recovered from its 2008 financial meltdown?

The mainstream media, and the economic pundits it favors, are rejoicing in the idea that Europe is “back in business,” following a fallow decade. A quick glance at Spain’s numbers suggests this hope may be forlorn.
With the exception of Germany, unemployment in major European Union countries has not returned to pre-crisis levels. Spain and Greece still have Depression levels of unemployment. France and Italy still have very high unemployment, with Italy having only recently fallen below the worst levels it experienced between 1990 and the introduction of the euro.
