Dutch activists ask Donald Trump to reinvestigate MH17 crash over Ukraine

A group of Dutch activists sent a letter to US President Donald Trump calling him to conduct a new investigation into the crash of the Malaysian Boeing in 2014 over the Donbas. According to Dutch News website, the authors of the letter claim that the official investigation conducted by the Dutch Safety Board and the joint investigation team "was not independent and convincing." According to the Volkskrant newspaper, the activists sent the letter to Trump in November. It was signed by 26 people, including German and Dutch journalists, as well as Dutch MP Thierry Bode. The publication notes that the authors of the letter do not believe in the findings of the investigation, according to which Flight MH17 was shot down by Buk missile. The activists wrote to Trump because he had previously doubted the version of the official investigation too. MP Bode said that he signed the petition as a private citizen against the backdrop of many unanswered questions about the disaster...

Trump Is Being Sabotaged by the Pentagon — Paul Craig Roberts

How is Trump going to normalize relations with Russia when the commander of US forces in Europe is threatening Russia with words and deeds?

The Pentagon has also sent armored vehicles to “moderate rebels” in Syria, according to Penagon spokesman Col. John Dorrian. Unable to prevent Russia and Syria from winning the war against ISIS, the Pentagon is busy at work derailing the peace negotiations.

The military/security complex is using its puppets-on-a-string in the House and Senate to generate renewed conflict with Iran and to continue threats against China.......

‘It is NOT up to us’ Donald Tusk SCATHED by Polish politicians over comments about Trump

DONALD TUSK has come under a fresh round of criticism and was told it was not his role to judge American democracy.

The scathing attack came from Witold Waszczykowski, the Foreign Affairs Minister of Poland, who said it was not up to European politicians to intervene.

Mr Tusk penned an open letter to the leaders of Europe ahead of a summit on Friday, where he warned of the dangers facing the EU.

In this letter the head of the EU Council warned some of the decisions made by the American administration were "putting the European Union in a tough position”.

Mr Waszczykowski said: "We are, quite frankly, slightly concerned with Donald Tusk's words."

Ostashko: Russia should wait out the coming global disorder

In fact, Trump’s critics don’t understand his main chip: his voters simply love when the liberal public in the US and Europe are writhing in anger and spitting poisonous saliva in television studios and newspapers. For the new American President’s voters and supporters, every tear of Madonna, Rihanna, Hillary Clinton, and John McCain are proof that Trump is real, that Trump is not like all the rest, and that Trump is exactly what America and the whole world need. When Merkel and Hollande criticize Trump for banning refugees, they’re primarily hurting themselves and showing that US-Europe relations have no future.

The scale of the EU’s banking problem has become “urgent and actionable”, according to Andrea Enria, chairman of the European Banking Authority.

Mr Enria called for a creation of an EU “bad bank” that would buy up the toxic loans from lenders in an attempt to break a financial cycle of falling profits, pressure on lending and struggling economic growth.

U.S. Defense Dept. Announces 'Thousands' Of Troops Descend Into Poland & Eastern Europe To Protect NATO Allies From Russian Aggression

The U.S. Defense Dept. issued a propaganda press release yesterday, justifying an invasion of Europe with more U.S. troops under the guise of protecting European peace from Russian hostility. The press release stated, in part, "The unit's deployment to Europe is part of Operation Atlantic Resolve, which was designed to reassure NATO allies and partners in the region after Russia invaded Ukraine. Ray said the arrival of the combat team was just one aspect of America's commitment to the region.. Deployed from Fort Carson, Colorado, the 3,500 soldiers and 2,000 vehicles of the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team join a recently increased land, sea and air presence in the region. The arrival of the 3rd ABCT begins a series of back-to-back rotations of U.S. troops and equipment to the region. The soldiers and vehicles will mass in Poland and then disperse via convoy across seven locations in Eastern Europe for training and exercises with European allies.

US to send tanks this week to territories near Russia’s borders

"After joint U.S.-Polish exercises in northern Poland on Monday, some of the M1A2 Abrams main battle tanks used in the drills will be transported to the Baltic states of Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania," where they will remain until NATO puts into operation its ‘deterrent force’ sometime in spring. Adam Thomson, a former U.K. ambassador to NATO: the dispatching of U.S. troops and armor to Europe "shows the allies are implementing their decision to create a small force to better detect any Russian moves in the Baltics and to show Moscow that the alliance’s major powers stand behind its eastern members." He said along with it the allies remained concerned over the "mixed messages on NATO" sent by U.S. President Donald Trump and his advisors, who expressed full support to the North-Atlantic pact, on the one hand, and described it as "outmoded", on the other. Trump "clearly has issues with the alliance," Thomson said. "It is a new experience for NATO to be described as obsolete." A U.S.

In 2015 there was no way the UK would vote to leave the European Union, so Prime Minister David Cameron promised to call a “Brexit” referendum as a cost-free sop to his party’s right wing in the upcoming election. The Conservatives won big, and Cameron kept his promise to run the meaningless referendum. But against all odds and contrary to nearly every election-day poll, Brexit won, flushing Cameron out of politics, pulling the UK out of the EU, and handing a huge victory to a populist coalition led by the UK Independence Pary’s Nigel Farage.

Soros-funded NGOs aiming to bring down Hungarian govt – foreign minister to RT

The activities of organizations funded by US billionaire investor George Soros in Hungary are “anti-democratic,” as they want to undermine the government in Budapest, the foreign minister of Hungary told RT.

Soros “would like this government to fail, he would like to kind of fire this government because he doesn’t like our approach, doesn’t like our policies,” Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto told RT’s Sophie Shevardnadze.

“We find it very anti-democratic if someone from abroad would like to influence Hungarian voters on whom to vote for,” he asserted.

Seeks to ban NGOs funded by George Soros in Serbia

- George Soros, through its foundation, and its branch offices in Serbia for the direct disruption of the constitutional order of the Republic of Serbia and directly interfere in the internal politics of our country and the electoral process. A network of non-governmental organization that is on the payroll of George Soros has put pressure on all patriotic political options and individuals who do not want to implement destructive policies by Soros, tries them through the media mud and implement the campaigns in order to inflict the greatest possible damage to the public and to minimize their impact, on the other hand there is a reasonable suspicion that the individual candidates financed from the fund - said the Movement.

WHAT WILL REPLACE THE EU?

When Guy Verhofstadt, a former Prime Minister of Belgium who now heads the alliance of ‘Liberals and Democrats for Europe’ in the EU Parliament, described British political figures leaving the EU ‘as rats leaving a sinking ship’, he revealed what he really thought. Like other EU bureaucrats, he knows that time is up, that the EU is indeed a sinking ship. Its disappearance into the dustbin of history is not a question of if, but only of when. The post-War invention of the EU (though not at that time under that name) was clearly only a temporary accommodation provoked by the USA.

‘Stop Operation Soros’ movement begins in Macedonia

A new initiative, Stop Operation Soros (SOS), dedicated to countering the influence of American billionaire activist George Soros, has been launched in Macedonia.

In a press conference on Tuesday, the founders of the group called on all “free-minded citizens,” regardless of ethnicity or religion, to join them in the “fight against one-mindedness in the civil sector, which is devised and led by George Soros,” the Vecer newspaper reported. The movement says it will first focus on uncovering ‘subversive’ activities by Soros-funded NGOs.

Flashback: Hungary set to turn screws on Soros-backed NGOs

Hungarian NGOs have long felt the heat under strongman Prime Minister Viktor Orban -- but they now fear that, emboldened by Donald Trump's victory, the right-wing premier will turn the screws even tighter.

First in line may be groups backed by Hungarian-born billionaire financier George Soros, whose foundation once funded the Oxford studies of a young Orban more than 25 years ago.

Last week the deputy head of Orban's ruling party Fidesz, in power since 2010, said that non-governmental organisations should be "cleaned out of here".

Szilard Nemeth said that criticism of government policies by "fake" civil organisations set up to "influence politics" by Soros and others was "impermissible".

Police in the Swedish city of Malmö made an urgent plea for locals to assist them in solving scores of serious crimes, including dozens of attempted killings, murders, beatings, rapes and other offenses as police struggle to grapple with a spike in violence.

In an open letter, Malmö police chief Stefan Sinteus on Friday encouraged citizens to provide testimonies in a hope that they might help police to find perpetrators in an array of otherwise stalled investigations.

“I can assure you that the police in Malmö are doing everything we can for suspected perpetrators to be held accountable. But we cannot do it on our own. We depend on you, and your witness statements, to solve these violent crimes. Therefore I appeal now to you: Help us,” Sinteus wrote.

So how did May pull it off, that is, tame the tycoon?

US President Donald Trump’s hosting of Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May was billed as the “odd-couple” meeting. After their amiable press conference and Trump’s remarkably subdued behavior – for him – the British leader is entitled to feel satisfied.

On her way to Washington DC, she even hinted at bracing for an odd-couple challenge, by telling reporters, “sometimes opposites attract.”

How Deutsche Bank Made a $462 Million Loss Disappear

The bankers in the room had seen some financial sleight of hand in their day, but the maneuver that Faissola’s staffers proposed was audacious. They described a simple trade in two parts. For one half of the deal, Paschi would make a sure-thing, moneymaking bet with Deutsche Bank and use those winnings to extinguish its 2008 trading losses. Of course, Deutsche doesn’t give away money for free, so for the second half of the deal, the Italians would make a bet that was sure to lose. But while the first transaction was immediate, the second would play out slowly, over many years. No sign of the €367 million sinkhole would need to show up when Paschi compiled its yearend financial reports.

THINGS JUST GOT SERIOUS IN EUROPE’S WAR ON CASH

The central authorities in Europe just launched their most important offensive to date in their multiyear War on Cash. The new move comes directly from the European Union’s executive branch, the European Commission, which just announced its intention to “explore the relevance of potential upper limits to cash payments,” with a view to implementing cross-regional measures in 2018.

Maximum limits on cash transactions already exist in most European countries, and the general trend is downward. Last year, Spain joined France in placing a €1,000 maximum on cash payments. Greece went one better, dropping its cap for cash transactions from €1,500 to €500. In simple terms, any legal purchase of a good or service over €500 will need to be done with plastic or mobile money.

I would like to hope that should the US government attempt to do this in some way, that the reaction would be as (peacefully) fierce against it.

Syrian “safe zones”: a disaster waiting to happen

This idea is a disaster waiting to happen, and could augur the unraveling of the President’s “America First” foreign policy, which supposedly abjures regime change operations in the Middle East and elsewhere. In 2013 testimony submitted to Congress by then chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey, the reality of what this would have to mean was outlined:

“Thousands of U.S. ground forces would be needed, even if positioned outside Syria, to support those physically defending the zones. A limited no-fly zone coupled with US ground forces would push the costs over one billion dollars per month.”

Washington's servants in Europe change their shoes one after another

Europe's master in Washington has changed. Donald Trump no longer needs those, who love to hate Russia.

Some may still hear forecasts from some mentally unbalanced individuals, who say that Russia could seize Poland in one day and the Baltic States - in 60 hours. One can still see US tanks and soldiers in Eastern Europe, but it appears that the situation has started to change. Yet, even Poland is changing its shoes now, although Warsaw is known as Washington's primary servant in Eastern Europe.

EU admits its lauded new border agency is FAILING as record numbers hit shores

THE European Union (EU) is desperately trying to cobble together a team of border guards after admitting its major new defence project is creaking at the seams.

Despite 100,000 guards in place all over Europe’s external borders, chiefs admit they are struggling to cope with demands.

Jean-Claude Juncker announced a record of 160,000 migrants used the Mediterranean Sea to access Europe last year, despite a major new European Border and Coast Guard Agency being set up to patrol Europe land and sea borders.

Now it can be revealed the EU's struggling task force, which recently revealed it sent 2,300 experts to Greece to send back just 908 people in 2016, say they are facing major funding issues over "deployment gaps".

As a result, the pound is set to lose its prized status as a leading international safe haven currency, said Robin Winkler.

Sterling is currently among one of the world's top so-called reserve currencies, along with the US dollar, Japanese yen and the euro.

Cyprus President Caught Up in Russian Money Laundering Under Pressure to Sign Deal Favoring EU and Turkey

Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades (lead images, left) has come under intense political and personal pressure to agree to terms of settlement for the future of Cyprus, swapping Turkish military occupation for European Union rights for all Turkish immigrants to the island -- the former to be implemented over years; the latter to become effective immediately.

The sensitivity of that deal, Cypriot, Greek and US sources said this week, is such a political bombshell for Anastasiades seeking re-election in a year’s time that he wouldn’t be risking detonation, if not for a personal vulnerability he is facing at the same time.

May To Publish Article 50 Bill, Brexit White Paper

UK Prime Minister Theresa May says the government is ready to publish a “white paper” on Brexit, as well as a bill that would seek the Parliament’s approval for kicking off the talks with the European Union (EU).

May made the announcement during this week’s Prime Minister’s Questions (PMQs) at the Parliament on Wednesday, a day after the UK Supreme Court ruled that the lawmakers should give her the go-ahead before invoking the Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty.

EU-Moldova association deal may be scrapped if people say so — president

"If most Moldovan nationals at the referendum or the majority of the elected parliamentarians speak against the agreement with the EU and decide to revoke it, the president cannot and will not prevent this," Dodon said at a news conference. The Party of Socialists of the Republic of Moldova, he led earlier came out against the signing of this agreement on grounds it was ‘premature’, he reminded reporters. "Putting it baldly, this was done for geopolitical considerations, and that is exactly why we can see what is happening - growing corruption, distrust of the authorities, declining numbers of European integration supporters from 70% in 2009 to 39% we have seen in the recent polls. We haven’t increased exports to the EU, but have lost the market in Russia, which had remained the main one for our country for many years. One billion euros was stolen from the country’s banking system after the signing of the agreement".

Transnistria’s future should be determined by referendum

Moldova’s President Igor Dodon said Tuesday the future of the breakaway region of Transnistria should be determined at a nationwide referendum. "I think that the president, the parliament and the government should have no differences on the Transnistrian settlement. We need to find a political solution that should be determined in a nationwide referendum," the president told reporters on Tuesday evening. The president added that on the first days of his presidency he met with the leader of the self-proclaimed republic of Transnistria, Vadim Krasnoselsky, and achieved certain practical goals, including the launch of the Joint Control Commission to oversee the peacekeeping operation. He dismissed local media reports that said he had recognized Transnistria’s six-billion-dollar gas debt to Russia. "From the legal point of view, it is a private debt of the Moldovagaz company," he said.

The controversial scheme, under which Syrians who fled their war-ravaged homeland are given about £21 a month, forms the central plank of a £2.5billion aid package from European states that was thrashed out with Turkey at the height of the migrant crisis last March.

Bad news Nicola! Sturgeon's EU dream in peril as MEPs brand Catalonia referendum 'ILLEGAL'

NICOLA Sturgeon's dream of keeping Scotland in the European Union were dealt a hammer blow today as Brussels politicians reacted with open fury to Catalonia's independence plans.

Fuming MEPs could not hide their contempt for efforts by the tiny Spanish region to split from the rest of the country and made it plain they would not welcome it into the bloc.

They fired volley after political volley at its plans for an independence referendum, which were touted by three Catalan MEPs at a highly controversial conference in Brussels this week.

The level of anger directed at secessionist politicians in Spain does not bode well for Ms Sturgeon, who wants to haul Scotland out of the UK in order to keep it in the single market.

President Trump signed five more executive actions Tuesday in a blitz of executive power meant to speed approvals of high-profile energy and infrastructure projects, including two controversial pipeline projects in the upper Midwest.

Trump signed two presidential memoranda intended to expedite the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, but also signed three more longer-term and sweeping directives requiring American-made steel and changing the process of approving and regulating future pipeline and infrastructure projects.

From Yin to Yang – Pussy Riot–3, in Washington

The ascent of Donald Trump is more than a change of tenant of the White House on 1600, Pennsylvania Ave. It is a momentous swing from Yin to Yang, from dark feminine to bright masculine paradigm, from Cybele to Christ. Tremendous resistance to the regime change proves its unique importance.

Pussy Riot–3, in Washington, another obscene attempt to use women and their bodies for political and religious anti-Christian purposes.

If you prefer a more up-to-date comparison, this is a new Pussy Riot. Perhaps you remember there was a Russian group of that name. They were anti-Putin like the American lot is anti-Trump; they blasphemed like their American counterparts; they were guided and supported by Louise “Madonna” Ciccone, who starred in Washington threatening to blow up the White House.

‘Integrate or Leave’: As Wilders Surges in Polls Dutch PM Ramps Up Migrant Rhetoric

Just one day after polls which gave Geert Wilders’s insurgent populist party a nine-point lead on the ruling conservatives, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte has drifted again politically closer to the rival he last week ruled out a coalition with.

Borrowing heavily from rhetoric commonly employed by Mr. Wilders, Prime Minister Rutte took out a full page advert and spoke in an interview with Dutch daily Algemeen Dagblad to tell migrants they should integrate or leave, and to issue a call for a return to “common decency”.

SETBACK FOR NEOLIBERALISM: TRUMP DUMPS TPP, WILL RENEGOTIATE NAFTA

President Donald Trump reportedly signed executive orders that will remove the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and start a renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). It increases the possibility that the Trump administration will deliver a fatal blow to neoliberal globalization. That such actions came from a Republican president is remarkable given the party’s recent history of support for neoliberalism, though the popularity of “free trade” has considerably diminished among the electorate. Both major party candidates in the 2016 cycle-former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Trump-campaigned in opposition to TPP.

Trump’s Inaugural Address Was Like No Other in History

He is rich enough, and independent enough, and cantankerous enough that he may not get stuck in the swamps of political compromise.

Donald Trump’s inaugural address is going to go down in history as one of the great ones.I say this as a man with 59 years of public speaking experience and a Ph.D. in American history.

Trump’s speech was different from any previous inaugural address. He spoke directly to his political base. He did not try to pull the country together in some kind of vague, pie-in-the-sky, common-ground political rhetoric. He threw down the gauntlet from the very beginning. Standing in front of the Capitol building, surrounded by former Presidents and politicians, he said that everything they had done in the past has been a way to extract power from the American people and to feather their own nests. This, of course, is exactly what they have done. Nobody had ever said this before in an inaugural address.

German Press: "That Was No Presidential Speech; That Was A Declaration Of War"

Following yesterday's openly confrontational, deliberately protectionist presidential address by president Trump, which in various circles has been dubbed the "American carnage" speech for obvious reasons, some of Obama's closest foreign friends are scrambling to find a role in a world that has drastically changed in less than 24 hours. One of them is the foreign leader whom Obama spoke to last before vacating the White House, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who vowed on Saturday to seek compromises on issues like trade and military spending with Trump, adding she would work on preserving the important relationship between Europe and the United States.

"He made his convictions clear in his inauguration speech," Merkel said in remarks broadcast live, a day after Trump vowed to put 'America first'.

Trump Fires Up Europe's Anti-Establishment Movement

"The genie will not go back into the bottle again, whether you like it or not." — Geert Wilders, MP and head of the Party for Freedom, the Netherlands.

A growing number of Europeans are rebelling against decades of government-imposed multiculturalism, politically correct speech codes and mass migration from the Muslim world.

Europe's establishment parties, far from addressing the concerns of ordinary voters, have tried to silence dissent by branding naysayers as xenophobes, Islamophobes and neo-Nazis.

"In many respects, France and Germany are proving they do not understand the meaning of Brexit. They are reflexively, almost religiously, following exactly the path that has provoked the EU's current existential crisis." — Ambassador John R. Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

The pronouncement comes after prominent politicians in a number of member states including Italy, France, Greece and the Netherlands have all made noises about ditching the euro.

Sidestepping the Military Leviathan: Make Money, Not War

Is Washington really going to start a trade war with China, or is it just huffing and puffing for position? I don’t know. Mr. Trump has inexplicably failed to brief me. A point worth bearing in mind:

The United States cannot compete commercially with a developed Asia, or China.

America has nowhere to go. It is a fully developed economy that cannot grow rapidly if it grows at all. America is also a country of only medium size with a white and Asian population of a bit more than two hundred million who do all the brain work. It has a decaying system of education, declining living standards, and an economy crippled by huge military expenditures.

By contrast China has a billion Han Chinese, intelligent government, a great deal of room to grow and high rates of doing so. The combined land mass, population, and economic potential of Asia are staggering. In differing degrees, Asian nations are growing.
