What else is the EU elite hiding from us?

With ten days to go until the referendum, how much are David Cameron and our partners keeping back from voters about the EU’s plans for the future?

The question is brought into sharp focus by yesterday’s leaks of British diplomats’ cables, discussing policies not intended to be publicly aired before the vote is safely out of the way.

In one, our representatives in Amsterdam say the Dutch have agreed to co-operate in delaying controversial Brussels announcements until after June 23.

In another, the Foreign Office’s people in Ankara advise ministers to consider offering visa-free access to as many as 1.5million Turks with ‘special passports’, to complement the EU’s plans to open up the border-free Schengen area to Turkey’s population of 80 million.

Brexit vote is about the supremacy of Parliament and nothing else: Why I am voting to leave the EU

Stripped of distractions, it comes down to an elemental choice: whether to restore the full self-government of this nation, or to continue living under a higher supranational regime, ruled by a European Council that we do not elect in any meaningful sense, and that the British people can never remove, even when it persists in error.

For some of us - and we do not take our cue from the Leave campaign - it has nothing to do with payments into the EU budget. Whatever the sum, it is economically trivial, worth unfettered access to a giant market.

We are deciding whether to be guided by a Commission with quasi-executive powers that operates more like the priesthood of the 13th Century papacy than a modern civil service; and whether to submit to a European Court (ECJ) that claims sweeping supremacy, with no right of appeal.

Conservative donor withdraws support over David Cameron's 'irresponsible' EU campaign

One of David Cameron's biggest donors has withdrawn his financial support for the Conservatives and is considering quitting the party over the way the Prime Minister has handled the referendum, the Telegraph can reveal.

Edi Truell, a pensions expert who has donated over £270,000 since 2010, said he will only hand over money if Boris Johnson or Michael Gove take over from Mr Cameron after a Brexit vote.

It came as Priti Patel, a Government minister, accused Mr Cameron of "undermining" the Conservative manifesto by warning that the triple lock on pensions could be at risk if the UK votes to leave.

CYPRUS OFFICIALS IN STEALTH TALKS WITH VICTORIA NULAND ON TURKISH TROOP PLAN

Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades is holding secret negotiations this week with Victoria Nuland (lead image, right), the US State Department official in charge of Turkey, Ukraine and Russia, on a plan to maintain Turkish military forces in Cyprus under the flag of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

Anastasiades has sent his aide, Nicos Christodoulides (lead image, left), to negotiate in Washington; he met with Nuland on Monday.

After losing control of the Cyprus Parliament to an increasingly nationalist vote in an election on May 22, Anastasiades has remained behind at the presidential palace in Nicosia, where he met on Tuesday with the NATO official now conducting Cyprus negotiations for the United Nations, Espen Barth Eide. The Cyprus Foreign Minister, Ioannis Kasoulides, is due to met US Secretary of State John Kerry, on June 13.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is completely insane; what right does the US government have to tell Cyprus that they have to accept a continued Turkish military presence, under NATO command?!?

Shouldn't the Cypriot people have the right to a referendum on such an issue?!?

Apparently, in Barack Obama's, John Kerry's, and Victoria Nuland's world, not at all.

Secret plan to open our borders to 1.5m Turks: British diplomats admit it would be a 'risk' but tell ministers the move would be a 'symbolic gesture to Turkey'

A secret plan to open Britain's borders to 1.5million Turks was revealed today after British diplomats said the move would act as a 'symbolic gesture to Turkey'.

Senior diplomats advised ministers that the EU's proposals to grant visa-free travel to Turkey's 75million population in the borderless Schengen zone could lead to the UK giving the same status to 1.5million 'special passport holders'.

EU officials have also quietly delayed the publication of of documents on the visa-free deal with Turkey until after June 23 to avoid deterring British voters from staying in the EU, according to reports.

British Voters ‘Ignorant’ About Brexit Thanks To Misinformation, New Poll Finds

It Begins: One European Bank Fails, Another One Needs An Urgent Cash Injection!

Interesting news this week as Belgium-based Optima Bank has been shut down by both the National Bank of Belgium (which also acts as the Belgian regulating body) as well as the ECB. According to the national supervisor, the bank would have been unable to meet its commitments to its clients and was forced to cease all banking activities after some potentially fraudulent transaction were unveiled. It’s surprising to see the main media have tried to keep this silent as even the website of the National Bank of Belgium didn’t bother to issue the press release in English (whereas all other press releases on the home page can be read in English). There’s no statement from the ECB either, nor has this news been translated on the English version of website of the state-owned national television station.

Hillary Comes Out as the War Party Candidate

Choosing to speak in San Diego, home base of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, on a platform draped with 19 American flags and preceded by half an hour of military marching music, Hillary Clinton was certain of finding a friendly audience for her celebration of American “strength”, “values” and “exceptionalism”. Cheered on by a military audience, Hillary was already assuming the role to which she most ardently aspires: that of Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces.

As usual, she goes for the military solution, ridiculing the notion of diplomacy.

Cameron warns health services, pensions could face cuts post-Brexit

But in a sign of increasing division within Cameron's ruling Conservative Party, a former minister and prominent 'Leave' campaigner accused him of making a "a baseless threat."

"What we now have is a vindictive and desperate attempt to bully and frighten the British people - particularly pensioners - all in a frantic bid to rescue a failing campaign," Iain Duncan Smith said, in an emailed statement from the 'Leave' campaign.

Greediest snouts in the EU trough: Not sure how to vote? Read about the stinking wealth and hypocrisy of those Brussels fat cats the Kinnocks and it may help you decide

Former Labour leader Lord Kinnock of Bedwellty, his wife Lady Kinnock of Holyhead and son Stephen Kinnock, Labour MP for Aberavon, have all been busy banging the drum for Remain.

It’s amusing to remember, however, that it was not always so in their household. Forty-one years ago, Neil Kinnock was a leading figure in the campaign for Britain to vote to leave the then European Economic Community. He believed then that it threatened British jobs and industry.Now, he is vigorously promoting the opposite view. So what could he possibly have seen on the EU gravy train — which has enriched his family by many millions of pounds — to make him change his mind?

EU referendum: Swedish foreign minister warns Brexit 'could cause break-up of European Union'

Brexit could cause the European Union to break down by triggering efforts by other nations to secede, the Swedish foreign minister has said.

An exclusive poll for The Independent found that the campaign for Britain to leave the EU has opened up a 10-point lead against Remain in a reversal of the position one year ago.

Margot Wallstrom, the foreign minister of Sweden, said other nations could follow the UK with referendums and demands from reform if it votes Out on 23 June.

Sir James Dyson: 'So if we leave the EU no one will trade with us? Cobblers...'

“When the Remain campaign tells us no one will trade with us if we leave the EU, sorry, it’s absolute cobblers. Our trade imbalance with Europe is running at nine billion a month and rising. If this trend continues, that is £100bn a year.”

He jabs at a graph. “If, as David Cameron suggested, they imposed a tariff of 10 per cent on us, we will do the same in return. We buy more from Europe than they buy from us, so we would be the net beneficiary and based on these numbers it would bring £10bn into the UK annually. Added to our net EU contribution, it would make us around £18.5bn better off each year if we left the EU,” he concludes with quiet triumph.

NATO Will Suppress Protests In Poland

On May 18th, 2016, the well-known Polish politician Mateusz Piskorski was arrested on charg-es of spying for “third countries.” Shortly before, he wrote an article that predicted the beginning of mass political repressions against NATO opponents in Poland and Europe as a whole. He was right. Katehon presents the following exclusive translation of his article:

Predictions concerning the upcoming NATO summit in July in Warsaw are beginning to clearly indicate that today the alliance’s goal is first and foremost preventing the emergence of social movements demanding the liberation of Europe from underneath the tutelage of the United States. As can be seen, the Financial Times’ inadvertent uttering of the words of one of the Polish Army’s senior commanders show just what decisions can be expected this summer. These are decisions which completely undermine not only the sovereignty of Warsaw in the field of foreign policy, but also clearly speak to the fact that from this moment on NATO is supposed to be a police force ready to participate in the pacification of eventual social protests or intervene in the affairs of domestic Polish politics.

EU referendum: David Cameron admits he is 'very concerned' about Brexit

Asked during the Facebook Live event hosted by Buzzfeed if he was losing sleep over the result, he replied: "Of course."

He went on: "I am very concerned about the outcome of this referendum because I think it is so important for our country. It is bigger than a general election.

"At a general election you pick a team, if you don't like them you can kick them out in five years' time. With this, we are going to live with this decision."

Truer words never spoken. OUT!"

How Finland became a battleground in the Russia-NATO information war

Despite the positive coverage that the alliance receives in the Finnish national mass media, only 22 percent support Finland’s accession to NATO, while 55 percent are against membership, according to one of the numerous polls on the subject conducted in the country. The long history of political-military neutrality that Finland observed in its relations with the Soviet Union and the Western bloc during the Cold War may explain Helsinki’s reluctance to formalize its relations with NATO today. “We are taught in schools how neutral politics kept us away from trouble [during the Cold War],” explained a government worker on conditions of anonymity. Twenty-five years after the end of the Cold War, the government is struggling to keep Finland’s foreign and military policy in balance... NATO’s Strategic Communications Center of Excellence has been studying hybrid warfare and training NATO officials in strategic communication strategies since 2014, according to its official webpage.

Fearful of EU Disintegration and Mired in Crisis, France Wants Britain Punished for Brexit Revolt

As support for a British exit from the EU strengthens, at least according to the latest polls that give some people whiplash, policy makers on both sides of the English Channel are finally beginning to think about the days, weeks and months after June 23. Some countries, such as Germany, seem more inclined to favor a soft, pragmatic approach in the event of a Brexit, while others, led by the government of France, are calling for a more punitive response.

Unelected government minister tells voters not to 'overrule their democratically elected MPs' by backing Brexit

An unelected peer has told voters not to defy their 'democratically elected leaders' by backing Brexit.

In a bizarre statement this morning, pensions minister Ros Altmann said the majority of MPs support Britain staying in the EU and said voters should follow their lead by voting Remain in the June 23 referendum.

'They're your democratically elected leaders,' she wrote. Voting Brexit overrules your own MPs.'

...

One Twitter user - accountant Rob Henderson - replied angrily to Baroness Altmann by telling her: 'Extremely disappointed in you. How dare the paupers of the nation have a different view from their masters eh?'

Security minister says Britain would be SAFER from terrorists if we decide to cut ties with Brussels

Britain would be safer from terrorists outside the EU, David Cameron's own security minister has insisted.

John Hayes said the Brussels club's ability to fight extremism was compromised by the 'grand scheming' of bureaucrats.

Trying to coordinate security links through the bloc was a 'distraction' and a 'waste' of effort, he argued.

The claim, in an article for the Telegraph, directly contradicts the view expressed by the Prime Minister and Defence Secretary Michael Fallon on the issue.

EU referendum: No single market entry for Britain after Out vote, German finance minister warns

During an interview in a Brexit-themed issue of German weekly Der Spiegel, he said:

“That won’t work. It would require the country to abide by the rules of a club from which it currently wants to withdraw.

“If the majority in Britain opts for Brexit, that would be a decision against the single market. In is in. Out is out. One has to respect the sovereignty of the British people.”

He also suggested an Out vote could trigger referendums across the Continent.

You can't rule it out. ... How would the Netherlands, which has traditionally been very closely allied with Britain, react, for example?"

Deutsche Bank's Shocking ECB Rant: Warns Of Social Unrest And Another Great Depression

In early February, in a post titled "A Wounded Deutsche Bank Lashes Out At Central Bankers: Stop Easing, You Are Crushing Us", we showed just how vast the feud between Europe's biggest - and ever more troubled commercial bank - and the ECB had become. As DB's Parag Thatte lamented then, "ECB rhetoric suggests additional easing measures forthcoming in March. While a fundamental tenet of these measures, in particular negative rates, has been to push investors out the risk spectrum, we remind that arguably the impact has been exactly the opposite." And while the DB analyst has been correct, and now NIRP is widely accepted as a major mistake, the ECB proceeded to not only ease even more just one month after this first DB lament, but in what may have been a direct affront to DB, launched the monetization of corporate bonds, something which as we documented earlier today has now led to the complete disconnect between bonds and underlying fundamentals.

Refugees PISSED After Not Being Woken Up For Ramadan. Their INSANE Reaction Says It All

Düsseldorf’s major international trade fair grounds were set ablaze Tuesday. The fire was deliberately made by Arab migrants angry because of an incident concerning Ramadan. Reports say the conflict was between the German staff and security guards, who were mainly Iranian, and the Arab residents.

According to testimonies, the Iranians, who were employed by Germany to take care of the migrants, “deliberately” did not wake the Arabs up in time for their Ramadan breakfast. This followed a long string of disputes between the two groups.

Just a few weeks before this incident, a migrant angry with the living conditions set his mattress afire in protest.

Migrants were witnessed proudly recording the fire on their cell phones. According to the migrants, the blaze was started because “we just want to get out of here.”

Scaremonger Alert! Taste of things to come? Investors dump billions in British assets as Brexit vote looms

Billions of pounds have been shifted out of the British economy by investors in the last few months. Chancellor George Osborne said this is “just a taste of things to come” if the public votes to leave the EU on June 23.

According to figures published by the Bank of England (BoE) in its monthly banking statistics, some £65 billion (US$94.7 billion) either left the UK or was converted into other currencies in March and April—the largest amount since early 2009, when the UK was in the throes of the global financial crisis.

30,000 Troops Kick Off NATO's Largest Eastern Europe War Game Ever, Will Practice Invading Russia's Kaliningrad

The operations are taking place mostly in Poland, with 14,000 US and 12,000 Polish troops the major contributors. The exercise is being described as the largest peace-time movement of foreign troops in Poland ever, and the first time since 1941 that German tanks will cross the country. Early operations announced include a mass parachuting into the city of Torun, and military engineers scrambling to build a bridge over the Vistula River to help NATO assault vehicles advance eastward in this theoretical war. The troops are advancing into NATO member Lithuania for the operation, but are heading in the general direction of the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad, a clear message that the operation is a simulation of a NATO invasion of Russian territory. The biggest concern among NATO officials is the involvement of Poland’s “territorial army,” a makeshift paramilitary force built of gun club members and soccer hooligans. Two brigades of such forces are to “assist” in the operation.

"Because they see what we see, namely that Minsk [agreement] is far from being implemented in any of its components," she added. The United States also intends to extend sanctions against Iran. Russia will also extend its counter-sanctions against Europe that cause EU billions of euros of losses. The Russian embargo is valid until August 5, 2016, but it will be extended, if the European Union extend its sanctions against Russia.

Scores of U.S. troops and then military vehicles parachuted into a spacious, grassy training area on the outskirts of the central city of Torun.

The force's mission was to secure a bridge on the Vistula River as part of the Polish-led Anakonda-16 exercise that involves about 31,000 troops and runs through mid-June.

Euroskepticism Beyond Brexit

The British are not the only ones with doubts about the European Union... The institution’s strongest backers are the Poles (72%) and the Hungarians (61%). In many other nations, support is tepid. Just 27% of the Greeks, 38% of the French and 47% of the Spanish have a favorable opinion of the EU. Notably, 44% of the British view the EU favorably, including 53% of the Scottish. EU favorability is down in five of the six nations surveyed in both 2015 and 2016. There has been a double-digit drop in France (down 17 percentage points) and Spain (16 points), and single-digit declines in Germany (8 points), the United Kingdom (7 points) and Italy (6 points). Young people – those ages 18 to 34 – are more favorable toward the European Union than people 50 and older in six of the 10 nations surveyed. The generation gap is most pronounced in France – 25 percentage points – with 56% of young people but only 31% of older people having a positive opinion of the EU.

Brexit won't happen even if we vote to leave the EU in referendum, says David Cameron's father-in-law

MPs will block Brexit even if we vote to leave the EU in the referendum, according to David Cameron's father-in-law.

Lord Astor said he did not believe there would be a majority in the House of Commons to repeal the legislation that underpins our membership of the bloc.

The bizarre scenario is possible because the national ballot is only advisory - and most politicians support staying inside the EU.

There has already been speculation that MPs could prevent us quitting the European single market, as Brexit campaigners have suggested should happen if there is an Out vote on June 23.

It's not just the Brits: Euroscepticism on the rise all across Europe, major survey shows

The Pew Research Centre survey found that rising disenchantment with the EU is not confined to the UK, with Greece, France and Spain also having a majority with an unfavourable view of Europe.

“Euroscepticism is on the rise across Europe with about two-thirds of both the British and the Greeks, along with significant minorities in other key nations, wanting some powers returned from Brussels to national governments,” said the report.

The findings, based on surveys covering countries that account for 80 per cent of the EU population, will strengthen the arguments of Brexit campaigners that Brussels have been too slow reverse the federalist agenda of the 1990s.

In a sign that Europe’s publics increasingly want an end to the principle of ‘ever closer union’, more than twice as many people surveyed – some 42 per cent - said they wanted powers returned to their national parliaments than said they wanted powers transferred to Brussels.

EU migrants living in Britain are more likely to have a job than British citizens, an alarming new Brussels report has revealed.

It also shows EU migrants are far more likely to be in work in the UK than those from outside of Europe - giving a boost to the Brexit campaign's argument that our current immigration system is 'racist' because it favours people from the continent over others.

BEX ALERT - NATO shows Putin who's boss: 31,000 troops, tanks and jets from 24 countries begin the largest war game exercise in eastern Europe since the Cold War in response to Russian aggression

NATO has deployed 31,000 troops and hundreds of tanks and jets to take part in the biggest war game exercise in eastern Europe since the Cold War as it responds to Russian aggression.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let me see if I have this right. The US (aided by allies, many of whom who are members of NATO) has started military offensives against Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Somalia, Mali, Uganda, Jordan, Cameroon, and is currently provoking China and Russia ... and Russia is the aggressor?!? Are you people on drugs?

You don;t see Russian aircraft carriers sailing around the Gulf of Mexico playing with their warplanes. We can see for yourselves who the aggressor is!

The executive leadership now faces the problem of how to deal with a traitor, who may be the Democratic Party nominee for US President. How do the executive leadership and intelligence agencies back a foreign spy for president, who has been deeply compromised and can be blackmailed? This may explain why the FBI, NSA, and CIA hesitate to press charges; hesitate to even seriously investigate, despite the obvious nature of her offenses. Most of all it explains why there is no indication of the identity of Secretary Clinton’s correspondents in the various reports so far available.
