An Old Nightmare Returns: The Balkans Simmer Again

The latest worrisome development is the victory of the most hardline factions in Kosovo’s just-completed national elections. An alliance that Kosovo’s media have dubbed the “war wing,” emerged as the largest bloc in parliament, garnering 34 percent of the vote. The principal leaders of that faction, headed by the Democratic Party of Kosovo, are President Hashim Thaci, and another former leader of the infamous Kosovo Liberation Army, Ramush Haradinaj, who is likely to become prime minister. European Union and UN investigators have accused both men of numerous war crimes during Kosovo’s war of secession from Serbia in the late 1990s.

This Smacks of a Double Standard

If you’re German father, and a culture-enricher sexually harasses or molests your daughter, you can’t shoot him. You can’t hit him upside the head with a board. You can’t kick him. And you can’t smack him. If you do, you may expect the full legal force of the Modern Multicultural State to come down hard on you.

About all you can do is say: “Good day, sir. My daughter welcomes refugees. You may have your way with her — please avail yourself of her services. Would you like her little sister, too?”

WATCH Su-27 Chase NATO F-16 Away From Russian Defense Minister's Plane

Earlier in the day, a Sputnik correspondent reported that the NATO aircraft attempted to get close to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu's plane over neutral Baltic waters but was chased away by the Su-27.

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization's (NATO) activities in Eastern Europe are deteriorating the situation near western Russia, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said at a ministerial board meeting Wednesday.

He pointed to the western alliance's build-up in the Baltics and "the improving infrastructure of their seaports, airfields and other military facilities."

EU DIPLOMATS today admitted that hardly any of the people arriving in Europe on boats are genuine refugees as they vowed to quicken up the rate of deportations for failed asylum seekers.

Brussels station EXPLOSION - Police swoop on terrorist wearing 'suicide belt'

It is not yet clear if the person is dead, or still alive.

EU extends Crimea sanctions, same seen for curbs on Russia

The European Union on Monday extended for another year its trade sanctions on the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea, annexed by Russia from Ukraine in 2014, and diplomats said they expected the bloc to do the same for its sanctions on Moscow soon.

Moscow's annexation of Crimea is not internationally recognized. Along with Moscow's subsequent backing of an armed separatist rebellion in Ukraine's industrial east, it has prompted the bloc to impose sanctions on the peninsula and on Moscow, in sync with the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is painfully clear that 1. the EU is stuck on stupid, when it comes to the financial opportunities trading with Russia and Crimea would bring its members, and 2. the writer of this piece of codswallop either has not a clue about the recent history of either Ukraine or Crimea, or is deliberately lying, to make these sanctions appear "justified".

In 2014, the US government worked with the IMF, and various Soros-sponsored organisations, and overthrew the duly elected President of Ukraine, President Yanukovich, replacing him in a rigged election with the western-centric thug, Poroshenko. Even President Obama admitted to such collusion in 2015:

Washington Was Behind Ukraine Coup: Obama admits that US “Brokered a Deal” in Support of “Regime Change”

You also had Victoria Nuland bragging about how much money the US spent to destabilise Ukraine:

The United States spent $5 billion on Ukraine anti-government riots

When Poroshenko took over the reigns of government in Ukraine, Crimean officials understood that there was not going to be anything approximating the rule of law in Kiev, so they did two things:

1st,they held a free and fair referendum, asking Crimeans if they wanted to stay with Ukraine, or petition the Russian Federation to join it.

Crimeans vote to join Russian Federation with a 97% vote

Secondly, then petitioned the Russian Federation to accept it as a member, and the Russian Federation did just that.

Russia never annexed Crimea; Crimea petitioned the Russian Federation to become a member.

This was a priceless example of peaceful self-determination by the Crimean people, but is treated by Ukraine and the West as betrayal, which must be punished.

'No chance, Juncker!' Hungary's populist PM vetoes idea of single EU-wide migration policy

HUNGARY stepped up its war of words with Brussels today as populist prime minister told chief Jean-Claude Juncker there was “no chance” he would agree to an EU-wide migration policy.

In yet another forthright intervention just days after eurocrats began legal proceedings against him, Viktor Orban reaffirmed his commitment to refusing refugees allocated through a euro quota system.

He strongly hinted he and other Eastern Eurpoean countries will reject any attempts to create a common European migration policy, such as the setting up of an EU asylum agency to determine applications and distribute refugees.

Among the group's goals is that all migrants who want to apply for asylum in EU countries have to do it in centers outside the bloc.

Belgium Extends Air Force Mission against Syria

Speaking during his visit to Canada, Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel confirmed that Belgium has extended the Belgian Air Force’ mandate for missions in Syria until the end of 2017.

Michel said the decision would be formally confirmed during the next session of the Council of Ministers in Brussels. The small European country has earmarked another 17 million euro for the operation.

The current mission mandate was coming to a close in June, but it will be extended for another six months. Under the new mandate, some 100 personnel and four fighter jets will be stationed in Jordan.

Michel said this would show that Belgium is

“a reliable partner in the fight against terrorism”. He added: “This is a strong signal towards our partners. Belgium is a reliable partner in an international coalition. We also want to show we are operational. After the NATO summit, this proves we are taking up our responsibility within Europe.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Belgium is fighting an illegal war to create regime change in Damascus; if one of their fighter jets takes down a Russian or Syrian fighter jet, you can bet that more sorties against Syrian or Russian troops will be met with defiance.

Turkey Wants to Continue Accession Talks With European Union

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said that Ankara is willing to pursue the talks with the European Union on getting full membership in the bloc and renew the Customs Union agreement with Brussels.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Ankara is willing to pursue the talks with the European Union on getting full membership in the bloc and renew the Customs Union agreement with Brussels, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said.

"Turkey is willing to pursue full membership talks with the EU and renew the Customs Trade [deal]," Yildirim said at a joint press conference on Monday with his Bulgarian counterpart Boyko Borisov in Ankara as quoted by the Anadolu news agency.

The Turkish minister stressed that the European Union had to "revise its future vision" and then make relevant decisions on the talks with Ankara.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question is, after the failed coup attempt in Turkey,and Erdogan having gone full tilt-buggie dictator over his own people, does the EU really want Turkey as a member?!?

NATO Holds Defense Drill Simulating Russian Invasion Of Baltics

NATO officials are growing increasingly nervous about the possibility of an invasion of the Baltic states ahead of Russian wargames planned this fall on the border of Belarus and Poland that could involve as many as 100,000 troops. That "anxiety" was on display this week, when US and British troops carried out the first NATO military exercise that involved a simulated defense of the Suwalki Gap, an area in northern Poland on the border with Lithuania that serves as the gateway to the Baltic region.

In other words, a drill against a Russian invasion of the Baltics states, and by extension, Europe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The logical question is, why in the name of heaven would Vladimir Putin and Russia pull such a bone-headed stunt?!?

The short answer is, they wouldn't!

But I can hear the drumbeat of further demonisation of Russia, by the US and Europe, as a prelude to war against it.

Italians Rejoice as Soros Ally Mayor Awarded UN Prize for Welcoming Migrants Kicked Out of Office

The Lampedusa native was kicked into third place at local elections Sunday, locals electing businessman Salvatore “Totò” Martello, who said during the campaign that he “cannot stand seeing migrants swarming everywhere”.

Poland plans Trump-era defense spending splurge, critics say 'unrealistic'

Poland's new plans to nearly double defense spending and add a further 100,000 personnel to its armed forces seem, on paper, to be just what NATO allies need to counter U.S. President Donald Trump's charge that Europe does not pay enough for its security.

Partly a response to Moscow's actions in Poland's eastern neighbor Ukraine, the "Concept of Defense of the Republic of Poland" aims to enable Warsaw to resist any possible Russian aggression without having to rely so much on help from the thousands of U.S. and other NATO troops already based in Poland.

It would be “great” if the UK backed away from its decision to leave the European Union and instead chose to stay within the bloc, German Economy Minister Brigitte Zypries told Reuters, adding, however, that she regards such a possibility as “unlikely.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Merkel did say that she wants to make it harder for others to Frexit, Swexit, Pexit, Rexit, Bexit and so forth; any guesses why the EU needs a EU army? How about sending the EU army to any EU country that thinks about Xexit? This starts to looks like 1956 Hungary and 1968 Czechoslovakia.

A LABOUR PARTY frontbencher has revealed that the party would concede over freedom of movement in a Jeremy Corbyn style Brexit deal.

John McDonnell appeared to suggest that the Party would leave the single market, however on Monday Barry Gardiner claimed that would not necessarily have to be the case.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, Rebecca Long-Bailey, the Shadow Business Secretary, said the party would concede on immigration and law for “impediment-free access” to markets.

May is essentially being forced to either reverse Article 50 or seal a 'Soft Brexit' deal for Britain

LONDON - Prime Minister Theresa May is being encouraged to either reverse Article 50, and cancel Britain's plan to leave the European Union, or seal a "soft Brexit" deal that is less harsh than what she was pushing for before the snap general election.

May triggered Article 50 in March, which kickstarted the official two year period where Britain has to negotiate its deal to leave the EU. Britain will leave the EU on March 29, 2019 - unless she calls to reverse it and all other 27-EU member states vote unanimously to allow her to cancel Brexit.

European Union door open if Britain gives up on Brexit: Germany

The European Union's door remains open if Britain changes its decision to leave the 28- member bloc, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said today, while acknowledging such a move is unlikely.
"If they wanted to change their decision, of course they would find open doors, but I think it's not very likely," Schaeuble told Bloomberg Television in his first public comments on last week's election in Britain which saw Prime Minister Theresa May lose her parliamentary majority.

THE NEXT FINANCIAL CRISIS HAS ALREADY ARRIVED IN EUROPE, AND PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO FREAK OUT

Did you know that the sixth largest bank in Spain failed in spectacular fashion just a few days ago? Many are comparing the sudden implosion of Banco Popular to the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008, and EU regulators hastily arranged a sale of the failed bank to Santander in order to avoid a full scale financial panic. Sadly, most Americans have no idea that a new financial crisis is starting to play out over in Europe, because most Americans only care about what is going on in America. But we should be paying attention, because the EU is the second largest economy on the entire planet, and the euro is the second most used currency on the entire planet. The U.S. financial system is already teetering on the brink of disaster, and this new financial crisis in Europe could turn out to be enough to push us over the edge.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And of course, American legislators have prevented American banks from having to deal with this kind of "economic trauma" because of the laws they have passed, preventing it.

8 NEW AREAS ADDED TO SWEDISH POLICE ‘NO GO ZONE’ LIST

Districts in Gothenburg, Malmö, and Stockholm, all with high migrant populations have been added to the list, taking the total to 53 areas where the police themselves say they are no longer able to maintain public order.

The report concludes that: “There exist parallel structures of society, police experience difficulties in fulfilling its mission, which is partly due to an unwillingness of the population to participate in legal proceedings, proximity to other vulnerable areas, and violent religious (i.e. ‘Islamic’) extremism is rife.”

Westmonster has previously reported on the growing problem of Islamist ‘no go zones’. Recently, two female politicians were recently forced to leave their constituencies, after being harassed by Islamists.

The European Central Bank (ECB) has already pledged to continue injecting billions of euros into the economy every month until the end of this year.

But monetary policymakers are likely to continue with the bond-buying programme, or so-called Quantitative Easing (QE) for another two years, according to Societe Generale.

It comes after ECB Chief Mario Draghi last week poured water over hopes that the money printing would soon be scaled back, prompting the euro to weaken.

Why are the Media Calling Sikhs, Blacks and Gays “Far Right”? – Because they are Protesting Sharia Law

In London, a peaceful march takes place that includes members of the Gay, Sikh and Black community; they march under the banner “Unite Against Hate”, but the BBC and other “progressive” news outlets are calling them “Far Right” and are not reporting on the violent attacks being perpetrated AGAINST them.
