German MEP Jens Geier said: "We can’t discuss this without talking about Brexit and the possible consequences for the EU budget. The radical changes that are going to occur when the second biggest net payer disappears are something that should at least be dealt with.

"When it comes to revenue and expenditure we can’t just say it’s business as usual."

Slovenian Patricija Sulin added: "I am still waiting for an answer to the question how are we going to close the gaps when the United Kingdom leaves? This 16 billion euros that the UK is paying into the budget annually is going to need to be replaced."

‘Russian threat’ meant to unite Europe which is in deep political crisis’

RT: Berlin has jumped on the bandwagon referring to Russian media as propaganda and RT Deutsch as "hostile." Why do they fear and blacklist Russian platforms?

RR: You can only understand this struggle if you look one layer deeper at it. We see a certain system crisis in those countries that have abandoned completely patriotic national values. They are in crisis and then pointing their fingers towards other governments, who have adopted the national agenda in their policy making – be it Russia with President Vladimir Putin, or be it now the US under President Trump. This is basically the line where the two parties are separated by the rather globalist-oriented system and the rather nationalist-oriented system.

Migrant muggers pick on schoolgirl - but are given a hiding as she's a martial arts EXPERT

A TRIO of migrant muggers were caught unawares by a 16-year-old girl after discovering their target was a black belt in jiu-jitsu.

The girl was walking to her home in Trescore Balneario, Northern Italy in broad daylight when three men in their 20s approached her and tried to steal her phone.

But as the attacker lunged into her pocket to grab the mobile, the young girl fought back – blocking her assailant and immobilising him.

Realising they were facing more than they had bargained for the other two attackers instantly fled the scene, leaving their fellow mugger behind.

The Frozen Ground of US-Russia Ties Is Hard to Till

Much is being said about institutional resistance within the US to any attempt to improve relations with Russia.

Rex Tillerson’s confirmation as US Secretary of State must come as comforting news for Moscow. It augurs well for the Russian-American relationship. It leads to ‘de-escalation’ in the tensions, of which incipient signs appear already.

However, the difference is Poroshenko is no gunslinger. And this is not fiction. It is grim reality where lives are suffering from his poker games.

Neocolonial "capitalist paradise" or crony "socialist paradise": the net result is the same: expropriation and impoverishment.

Yesterday I noted that not all assets will make it through the inevitable financial re-set. ( Which Assets Are Most Likely to Survive the Inevitable "System Re-Set"?)

Those that are easy to expropriate will be expropriated, and those assets vulnerable to soaring taxes, inflation and currency devaluation will also be hollowed out.

There are two real-time examples of these dynamics we can profitably study: "capitalist" Greece and "socialist" Venezuela. Both nations have impoverished their citizenry to preserve an oligarchy and its cronies.

A year ago, following the release of Russia’s new national security document, naming as threats both the United States and the expansion of the NATO alliance, a Pentagon spokesman declared: “They have no reason to consider us a threat. We are not looking for conflict with Russia.”

Meanwhile, in early January, the United States embarked upon its biggest military buildup in Europe since the end of the Cold War – 3,500 American soldiers landed, unloading three shiploads, with 2,500 tanks, trucks and other combat vehicles. The troops were to be deployed in Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, Germany, Hungary and across the Baltics. Lt. Gen. Frederick Hodges, commander of U.S. forces in Europe, said, “Three years after the last American tanks left the continent, we need to get them back.”

In a jaw-dropping interview which is bound to infuriate Greek voters European Central Bank (ECB) board member Benoit Coeuré effectively washed Brussels’ hands of the country’s desperate situation.

He insisted that Greece’s economic problems are “not related to its euro membership” and defended the EU’s decision to admit the country into the single currency which has been heavily criticised.

Grexit 4.0? Varoufakis Urges Tsipras: Ditch Negotiations, Adopt "Parallel System"

In his article, Varoufakis suggested that Schaeuble’s strategy is to lead Greeks to the point of exhaustion so they ask to leave the euro themselves.

Noting that the “parallel payment system was already designed in 2014”, Varoufakis stresses that Tsipras had “two delusions” that led the government to the current impasse:

a. that on the night of the referendum, the dilemma was between Schaeuble’s Grexit Plan and the 3rd bailout

b. that the obedience to the 3rd bailout could be political manageable through a parallel, society-friendly program.
Both of these “working assumptions” were based only on autosuggestion, the ex finance minister stresses adding that he tried to explain this to the Prime Minister on the night of the referendum

In the report, attacks on police officers were detailed, along with incidents of children carrying weapons, sex attacks and other violent crimes.

Taking to Facebook to share his frustration, Mr Springare, who works as an investigator for the Örebro police, said the lion’s share of the crimes were committed by migrants.

RT’s Going Underground host Afshin Rattansi spoke to Trump's pick for ambassador to the EU, Ted Malloch, former Deputy Chief of UN Economic Commission for Europe, and professor at Henley Business School in the UK.

“Taking Down” British Officials – Philip Giraldi

A quite incredible story out of England has not received much media coverage in the United States. It concerns how the Israeli Embassy in London connived with government officials to “take down” parliamentarians and government ministers who were considered to be critical of the Jewish State.

It was also learned that the Israeli Embassy was secretly subsidizing and advising private groups promoting Israeli interests, including associations of Members of Parliament (MPs).The story is interesting on several levels, particularly given the recent furor in the U.S. over allegations that Russia has been interfering in American politics.

Judging by the information provided by the Russian intelligence provided to our secret services, Albanians are preparing to invade the north of Kosovo, while Croats are preparing the same scenario for the western part of the Republic of Serbian(Bosnia and Hercegovina)!

In this wicked plan allegedly involved some NATO officials.

The plan is to carry out attacks in the next two weeks and at the same time, in order to prevent Serbia to react and protect their compatriots.

Their intention is to direct false motives for the attacks, but the goal is that in the next 24 hours Albanian special forces come to Jarinje, and Croatian Army Republic of Serbian cut in two!

For fear of a possible alliance between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, they want as quickly as possible to implement his plan to work, because they realize that this is perhaps the last good moment to attack.

It has all the makings of a Cold War spy thriller. Shady deals over caviar and vodka in an East European restaurant, a waiters’ plot, a foreign minister dismissing the country’s alliance with one of its most important allies—all to the sound of clinking glasses in expensive restaurants.

The scandal surrounding the publication of secret conversations between Polish politicians—dubbed “Waitergate” after the restaurant staff was implicated in the bugging—has come at a time when the Polish government appeared to be riding high.

‘And those laws will be interpreted by judges not in Luxembourg but in courts across this country.’

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."

Trump "clearly has issues with the alliance," Thomson said. "It is a new experience for NATO to be described as obsolete." A U.S.
