View competition objectively: China tells Merkel and EU

In a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Chinese President Xi Jinping has urged the EU to “view competition objectively”.

Merkel has already said she favours, in principle, granting China market economy status at the World Trade Organization, and is expected to back Beijing when heads of the European Commission debate the issue in late June or July.

Xi “expressed hope that Germany and the European Union would view competition and cooperation objectively, appropriately address trade disputes with China and honor their obligation stated in Article 15 of the accession protocol signed when China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001, to ensure healthy development of the economic and trade ties between China and the European side” state news agency Xinhua said.

Market-economy status would be a business boost for China. The US has argued against it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Meanwhile, China and Germany have inked 96 deals valued at $15 billion during Merkel’s trip, her ninth visit to China.

'If you stay in the EU, we will acknowledge the 1966 Wembley goal and reserve sun loungers for you with our towels':German tabloid Bild offers 11 hilarious bribes as Europe's media pleads for UK to stay

German tabloid Bild has offered 11 hilarious bribes in a bid to urge Britain to reject Brexit - even vowing to finally recognise Geoff Hurst's disputed goal in the 1966 World Cup final.

In another offer to English voters in the EU referendum, the country's most popular newspaper said it would personally reserve sun loungers for Britons on holiday using its own towels.

Bild was one of many newspapers across Europe who have pleaded with Britain to stay in the EU after dedicating their front pages to the referendum.

The German daily dipped into decades of clichés about British-German relations for its front page - and referenced the controversy over the 1966 World Cup final.

Robert Mundell, economist and "evil genius of the euro"

The idea that the euro has "failed" is dangerously naive. The euro is doing exactly what its progenitor – and the wealthy 1%-ers who adopted it – predicted and planned for it to do.

That progenitor is former University of Chicago economist Robert Mundell. The architect of "supply-side economics" is now a professor at Columbia University, but I knew him through his connection to my Chicago professor, Milton Friedman, back before Mundell's research on currencies and exchange rates had produced the blueprint for European monetary union and a common European currency.

Even France would LEAVE the ‘sad’ EU if it had a referendum, top French philosopher says

Bernard-Henri Lévi said the French would “probably” abandon the EU if they were given the chance.

The respected philosopher said the EU is clogged-up with bureaucrats who have over regulated everything to the point where there is no longer any room for “dreams or ideas”.

He said: “If there was a referendum in France, they would probably vote for Brexit.

“One of the problems of Europe – which is the explanation for this populist reaction like a Brexit – is that this Europe is not desired any longer. And it does not create desire. This is because the pattern it shows is so sad, so grey, so technical and so technocratic.”

What a cynical exercise in hiding the truth: IAIN DUNCAN SMITH on David Cameron's claims over Turkey's EU membership

Although he now claims there is no chance of Turkey joining (allowing its 77 million citizens free movement to the UK), why did the Prime Minister refuse on FOUR occasions to say he'd use the British veto to stop it happening? There are several other contradictions.

If Turkey won't join 'until about the year 3000' (as the PM has said), why is there a special team at the British embassy in Ankara helping Turkey to join?

And why are hundreds of millions of pounds of British taxpayers' money being spent to support the accession of Turkey (as well as Albania, Serbia, Macedonia and Montenegro) to the EU?

Equally, why are Brussels officials busy negotiating key financial aspects of Turkey's accession before Christmas?

Nailed, the four big EU lies: Talks with Turkey will start in days, Brexit WON'T spark trade war say Germans, Brussels will NOT reform on open borders and deportation of jobless EU migrants a myth

As voters prepared to go to the polls in a knife-edge contest, Leave supporters said David Cameron's arguments on Turkey, trade, migration and welfare had fallen apart.

And in a final impassioned plea, Michael Gove declared today was 'D-Day' for current generations of Britons. He urged wavering voters not to flinch from regaining sovereignty from a Brussels machine that would leave their country poorer and less secure.

Despite the constant propaganda against exit, polls indicated that more favored leaving the EU than remaining until a female member of Parliament, Jo Cox, was killed by a man that a witness said shouted “Brexit.” Cox was an opponent of leaving the EU.

The EU’s betrayal of Britain’s fishing industry

In the Seventies, Britain and Greenland held around 80 percent of fish stocks. In comparison, nations such as France, Spain and Italy had destroyed stocks in the Mediterranean.

With such a small population so reliant on one industry, Greenland saw no other option but to leave the EU. How is the nation doing now? Having ignored the scaremongers at the time, the islanders have found their average income on par with other rich Northern European states, and they have benefited from the lack of EU red tape.

In addition, Greenland successfully negotiated favourable terms for their exit, and now enjoy favourable trade deals with the EU. If a nation of 57,000 can do it, why do we often hear that Britain, a nation of 65 million, cannot do the same?

Iceland's fishing minister has said the country would "never join the European Union" because the country is thriving outside.

The country applied to join the EU in 2009, but dropped the application last year.

The nation now has one of the most modern and productive fishing industries in the world.

David Keighley’s BBC Watch: How State propaganda linked Cox’s death to Farage’s poster

The Corporation’s treatment of Farage this week has taken this negativity to a new, menacing level. It is clear, unequivocal evidence of deep prejudice against the ‘exit’ side. Last Thursday, Farage unveiled a campaign poster based on a picture of immigrants on European soil that was aimed at drawing attention to the problems caused by the EU’s attitudes towards the issue. Controversial? Yes. Unsubtle? Maybe. But without doubt, a depiction of a legitimate aspect of a debate in which control of immigration has played a central role.

Two hours later, 150 or so miles away, a gunman with mental health issues cruelly killed the MP Jo Cox. Despite the dangers of ascribing rational motives to the deranged, the Left instantly hijacked the murder to create political capital, and this has continued relentlessly to the extent that it now defines the ‘Remain’ case.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

People who know the killer insist he had no political views at all, even on the Brexit.

At long last, a secret agreement that received absolutely no input from the general public and a heck of a lot of input from the world’s biggest corporations and their lobbyists will be presented to and voted on by Europe’s elected representatives.

They gathered near Vienna for a Patriotic Spring. Europe's right leaders have supported the British peoples desire to leave the EU. They also condemned the unsolved migrant crisis, calling for a restoration of national sovereignty. This happened last friday.

The meeting was hosted by Austria's Freedom Party (FPÖ), which almost won presidential elections in May and which is leading opinion polls ahead of the next scheduled elections in 2018. Politicians from nine countries attended the meeting, including Marine Le Pen of France's National Front, politicians from the Alternative for Germany (AfD) and Italy's Lega Nord.

The so-called political elites of Europe "are scared that the United Kingdom is regaining its liberty, its freedom to trade with whom it pleases," Le Pen told to the people present at the event. "We want all the peoples of Europe to take back these liberties. The will of the people has to be respected," she stated.

Brexit: Global Trigger Event, Fake Out Or Something Else?

Those people who do not avidly track global economic events may be a bit confused by the growing tensions surrounding the U.K. referendum to exit the European Union, otherwise known as the “Brexit.” Or, they are completely indifferent. Unfortunately, the potential fallout surrounding the event could very well affect the entire world, but perhaps not in the manner the mainstream media and international financiers would have us believe...

The Meaning of Brexit

The Political is Personal

Whatever the British people decide about the EU the people who dwell on this island have been pushed to think patriotically and nationalistically. The decision each of us make to vote for ‘remain’ or for ‘leave’ will be based on the realisation that this political decision will have a significant personal impact.

Party Politics is A Severe Form Of Detachment

Both major parties failed to assess the huge appeal of the ‘call to leave.’ This blindness proves that the estrangement between the British political universe and the public is complete. This shouldn’t be much of a surprise. Many of the Britain’s political leaders are public school graduates. They are foreign to the experience of most of the British people.

Governments got into this mess by violating four common sense rules regarding their fiscal and monetary policies. These rules are:

1. No sovereign government should ever, under any circumstances, give over democratic control of its money supply to bankers.

2. No sovereign government should ever, under any circumstances, borrow any money from any private bank.

3. No national, provincial, or local government should borrow foreign money to increase purchases abroad when there is excessive domestic unemployment.

4. Governments, like businesses, should distinguish between "capital" and "current" expenditures, and when it is prudent to do so, finance capital improvements with money the government has created for itself.

Sovereign countries must create their own currency via their own public central bank in order to maintain their sovereignty. The EU is set up to eliminate sovereignty, since the member countries become in debt to a currency they don't control.

Economists are often wrong (and British voters ought to know that)

That economists are frequently wrong about fundamental questions was wonderfully reaffirmed seven years later. In 1999, The Economist surveyed 164 British economists, two-thirds of whom said that they were in favor of Britain joining the single currency.

In 2016, fifty leading economists, who were brought together by the pro-EU Centre for European Reform, concluded that “there is a broad consensus that the euro had been a disappointment: the currency union’s economic performance has been very poor, and rather than bringing EU member-states together and fostering a closer sense of unity and common identity, the euro has divided countries and eroded confidence in the EU.”

The entire European Commission - the executive body of the European Union - has resigned in the wake of a damning report exposing fraud, corruption and mismanagement at senior levels.

"Everyone is going," Farm Commissioner Franz Fischler said after an emergency meeting in Brussels.

The BBC Europe correspondent says the situation at the commission is one of hysteria.

The meeting was called after the Commission was slammed in a report on its handling of fraud and corruption in its ranks.

The report, which was published on Monday, accused the entire EU executive body of losing political control. The European parliament's largest political group, the Socialists, had called on the entire Commission to resign.

NATO Commander Admits There's No Threat of Russia Invading the Baltics

NATO has launched an unprecedented buildup in Eastern Europe, specifically focusing on the Baltic region, continuously citing "Russian aggression." But one alliance general has suggested that the West has no reason to believe Moscow has any intention to invade its neighbors.

Last Tuesday, NATO agreed to deploy "four robust multinational battalions" that will serve in Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Poland on a rotational basis. According to NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, these troops are necessary to show that the alliance will "continue to protect and defend all Allies against any threats coming from any direction."

US Army soldiers representing units participating in the the Anaconda-16 military exercise, attend the opening ceremony, in Warsaw, Poland, Monday, June 6, 2016.
NATO Battalions on Russian Borders Could Easily Grow Into Larger Contingent

Pavel's comments assure me that there some "adults in the room" in NATO high command; my great fear, however, in this circumstance, is that Pavel and his logic will be overruled by other commanders, drunk on the smell of their own cork, who really WANT a war with Russia, and believe, with intense hubris, that they could actually win it.

The European Dead End

European construction began as the dream of European elites and has become the nightmare of European peoples. For a number of European intellectuals and politicians, the dream was to transform Europe into a sort of Superstate, capable of rivaling the United States. For others, the idea was to get rid of the Nation-State once and for all, since it was considered chiefly to blame for the woes of the 20th century.

Jun 21 13:59


Russian capabilities to deploy troops at long distances are “scary” as they outweigh those of NATO, the commander of US Army Europe has said, calling for “a military Schengen zone” that would allow troops to move back and forth within the bloc’s territory.

“Their snap exercises that they [Russia] do, I personally am surprised each time they do it. And so you can see why that scares me,” Gen. Hodges said, obviously referring to the Russian Army’s large-scale military drills intended to test troops’ readiness and combat capabilities.

Hodges’s remarks echoed a February report by RAND Corporation that claimed NATO “cannot successfully defend the territory of its most exposed members,” adding that the Baltic cities of Tallinn and Riga would be overrun by Russian forces in less than “60 hours.” The alarming report came as the Pentagon announced plans to quadruple its spending in Europe in 2017.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question one has to ask (but didn't get asked of Gen. Hodges) is why in sam's hill would Russia want to invade a NATO country?!?

This just absolutely does not make sense; Russia wants to trade and do business with the world; not invade the rest of the planet!!

The Netherlands: EU membership to no purpose

The leader of the Dutch Freedom Party, Geert Wilders, aims to exit from the EU. He said that the European Union deprives the Dutch of their identity and democracy... "The Netherlands has been discussing this question for years. The country has given the EU and its progenitor, the European Economic Community, a lot more than it has taken". According to Nikolai Mezhevich, the public mood in the donor countries of the European Union differs from that in EU's beneficiary countries. For example, Poland, despite its euroscepticism, has obtained more than it has lost as a result of its EU membership, both financially and politically. In case of the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg, the state of affairs is not so obvious. These countries have not acquired sales markets, unlike Germany, for instance. One may not say that they have increased their national wealth either, as the above-mentioned countries had been wealthy and prosperous before they joined the EU.

Transdniestrian FM says attempts to preserve Moldova’s Soviet-era borders are utopian

"We make only realistic forecasts, unlike our Moldovan colleagues and some international partners who prefer to follow an utopian idea of preserving the borders of ‘Soviet Moldova,’" the press service of the Transdniestrian foreign ministry quoted his as saying in an interview with German journalists making a film about Transdniestria. He noted that since 1990, when the non-recognized republic of Transdniestria sprang into existence, more than 35 new states have been formed, with most of them being internationally recognized. "The fundamental basis for the sovereignty of a number of such countries was the will of the people. And this is the only scenario acceptable for Transdniestria. Our principled position has always been as follows: the settlement is to rest on the actual reality that has formed over these years and be based on the people’s will," he stressed.

STEVE HILTON, a former senior adviser to David Cameron, is standing by his claim that the prime minister was told his pledge to cut annual net migration to under 1000,000 was impossible.

Mr Hilton, who is campaigning for Brexit, insists Mr Cameron was directly and explicitly told in 2012 his migration manifesto pledge would fail.

"We were told, directly and explicitly, that it was impossible for the Government to meet its immigration target as long as we remained members of the EU, which of course insists on the free movement of people within it," he wrote in the Daily Mail.

Nine per cent said they are still undecided while four per cent said they would not vote.

The results show a switch back to Leave from YouGov's previous online survey, published over the weekend, which handed a two point lead to Remain.

This story stinks to the high heavens

The shooting of British Member of Jo Cox is very suspicious.

First, the killer is not known to have ever had any political opinions at all.

Second, not one single real eye witness said he yelled "England First."

Yes, immediately as the news broke, the UK corporate news media all painted this sick individual as an advocate of "Brexit", the leaving the European Union by the UK.

Right before the shooting polls showed that the vote was very likely going to be for exit.

Now, the vote has been suspended and the news media are making a heroine out the victim - and most importantly - villains out of anyone who wants the UK to leave the European Union.

This story stinks to the high heavens.

It’s Not Just the UK – Widespread Support for EU Referendums Seen Across the Continent

Actions have consequences, and people can only be pushed so far before they snap. I believe the Paris terror attacks will be a major catalyst that will ultimately usher in nationalist type governments in many parts of Europe, culminating in an end of the EU as we know it and a return to true nation-states. Although I think a return to regional government and democracy is what Europeans need and deserve, the way in which it will come about, and the types of governments we could see emerge, are unlikely to be particularly enlightened or democratic after the dust has settled.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just like the voters in the US are learning, as Hillary is handed the White House.

The scaremongering about Nexit

Every time I dig into the position of Brexit- and Nexit supporters, I keep stabbing three quarters. They are in favor of Europe and free trade, they say, but the EU is not required. The EU urges States mass immigration, they say, and they are against: borders closed. But how you do it - free trade with the borders closed?

Caution is advised here. If I conclude that EU opponents with their closed borders threaten free trade, I do namely to scaremongering. And intimidation is taboo in Brexit- and Nexit debate. In previous debates on the EU is distributed much scaremongering - the light goes out, etc. - that you can bring facts only EU skeptics that no one scare.

The Assault | The Battle of Stalingrad (1 of 3)

"The Eastern Front experienced the viciousness of war on a scale of unimaginable horror and brutality. The bloodiest and most savage fighting took place in Stalingrad between August 1942 and February 1943. Stalin's city on the Volga had military significance for Hitler. It carried the name of his enemy and therefore had to be destroyed. The ensuing battle sealed the fates of hundreds of thousands of soldiers and civilians and marked the turning point of World War II. It was the beginning of the end for Nazi Germany.

Filmed from both the German and Russian perspective, the series contains footage shot by soldiers during the siege. The Russian archives opened their doors to the filmmakers, granting them exclusive access to previously unreleased material.

Trump as the ‘Relative Peace Candidate’

The danger to the rest of us is not Trump, but Hillary Clinton. She is no maverick. She embodies the resilience and violence of a system whose vaunted ‘exceptionalism’ is totalitarian with an occasional liberal face.”

Hillary Clinton has shown no real remorse over her support for neocon “regime changes,” aggressive wars and belligerence toward Russia, leaving the oft-obnoxious Donald Trump as the relative peace candidate, says John V. Walsh.

Let us hear from these heretics, among them William Greider, Glen Ford, John Pilger, Jean Bricmont, Stephen F. Cohen and William Blum. Their words are not to be construed as “endorsements,” but rather an acknowledgement of Trump’s anti-interventionist views, the impact those views are having and the alternative he poses to Hillary Clinton in the current electoral contest.
