AMERICAN ENVOY fueled Macedonia to the brink of war

Aleksandar Mitevski, director of the Center for Research and Analysis of Skopje except that agrees with the fact that the visit of US envoy further deepened the crisis in Macedonia, suspected that the State Department envoy, Brian Hoyt Yee, received approval by the current US administration for this performance, and believes it is his voice - the voice of the former "Clinton -obama" administration that still in this part of the world has the final word.
"Neither the White House nor the National Security Council had not previously been informed that the Ambassador to Macedonia Jess Bailey planned to recognize the new" parliament speaker "on Thursday evening. This site says' Balkanalizis. This finding raises very serious concerns about who love American foreign policy at the same time when the Balkan ready to explode, amid rising nationalism, "he said.

Why Germany Still Uses the Deutsche Mark

So the Brits aren't the only ones who lacked confidence in the EU Project from the start?

According to the 2012 source article, the Deutsche Mark is still in circulation in Germany to the tune of 13.2 billion DM, or roughly 6.6 billion in today's Euro assuming no more DM has been printed or destroyed. Born2Invest.com says that as of 2015, there are 12.9 billion DM in circulation [Coinmill.com will show you the exchange rate as of 5/2/2017].

Britain must have seen some problem with entering the Eurozone, so they kept the lb. as their currency. Did Germany see the same thing and keep the DM alive as a lifeboat?

Maintaining the DM as an exchangeable currency allows the Germans to circumvent a lot of legal ballyhoo if they leave the Eurozone. This is my theory for why the DM was never made defunct.

Vladimir Putin's sphere of influence edges closer to EU as Serbia accepts Russian weaponry

VLADIMIR Putin’s sphere of influence edged closer towards western Europe after Serbia announced plans to massively increase its defence industry and complete the purchase of Russian weaponry – despite the Balkan nation previously claiming it wanted to join the EU.

Zoran Djordjevic, the Serbian defence minister, proudly declared 800 new jobs would be created by the need for pilots and operating staff for the new Russian fighter jets, alongside the opening of two helicopter repair centres.

It follows the election of vocal Putin support Aleksandar Vu?i? as president.

Iceland’s Approach to Teen Substance Abuse is Something America Needs Now

Waking Times

Primarily addressing the issue of underage drinking and binge-drinking, a need for a new plan to confront teen substance abuse in Iceland has achieved extraordinary results, turning around the dangerous trend. Employing both a ‘radical and evidence-based’ approach, community leaders first looked at stress as a causal factor in substance abuse, then looked at why people become addicts, then offered practical solutions which have thus far worked.

Macedonian nationalists storm the parliament to hold on to power

Macedonia has been in a state of political crisis for more than two years, but the attack in Skopje may prove a turning point. For weeks VMRO had been filibustering efforts by the Social Democrats and their allies, an ethnic Albanian party, to elect a new speaker. On April 27th they at last managed to vote in Talat Xhaferi, an ethnic Albanian MP. Several hundred VMRO supporters, who had been demonstrating outside parliament, stormed the chamber and assaulted Social Democrats, ethnic Albanians and journalists. At least four deputies were hurt, one badly.

NATO may boost its presence & prolong ‘training’ mission in Afghanistan – Stoltenberg

NATO is considering sending additional military personnel to Afghanistan and increasing the timeframe of the deployment in the view of the “challenging security situation,” the alliance’s secretary general, Jens Stoltenberg, told the German Die Welt daily.

The additional troops are expected to join the NATO Resolute Support mission which it says is aimed at training, assisting and advising Afghan security forces in their fight against violent insurgents and various extremist groups.

The ‘training’ mission, after the majority of ‘combat’ troops were withdrawn, currently involves 13,000 servicemen, with around 8,400 of them being from the US.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Italian police say Amazon has evaded 130 million euros of taxes

Milan tax police have told Amazon they believes the world's largest online retailer has evaded around 130 million euros ($142 million) of taxes in Italy, a source close to the matter said on Friday.

The allegedly unpaid taxes refer to the period between 2011 and 2015, when Amazon (AMZN.O) made revenues of around 2.5 billion euros in Italy, the source said.

The tax police's findings have been handed to Milan prosecutors, the source added.

Amazon issued a statement denying it had evaded any taxes, and said its profits in Italy, on which taxes are paid, had been low due to its considerable investments in the country.

On Friday, Montenegrin MPs voted 46-0 to become the 29th member of NATO.

Opposition lawmakers boycotted the parliamentary session, while hundreds of protesters gathered outside the parliament building before the vote to express their discontent with the idea of Montenegro joining the alliance.

REVEALED: Brussels moves to INCREASE Britain's exit bill to plug EU's budget black hole

Senior EU officials today revealed that member states were “unanimous” on the fact that the UK must settle up on its financial commitments before trade talks can start and appeared to increase the potential scope of the final amount to be paid.

At a briefing to the Brussels press corps eurocrats said they had been “really surprised” by the determination of the other 27 member states to ensure that getting Britain to cough up was included as a top priority in the negotiations.

And they hinted that the “global amount” that the UK will be billed will now include “political” commitments the UK has signed up to, which includes programmes like the Turkey refugee package which could run for years or even decades to come.

Italy to Raise Taxes to Satisfy Brussels – Why the Euro Will Fail

The bill is now being discussed in Parliament, which has 60 days to pass. Italy has the second highest debt in the Eurozone after Greece.

"This Is A Coup": Masked Men Storm Macedonia Parliament - Live Feed

Supporters of the movement "For The Common Macedonia" stormed the Macedonian parliament and attacked the deputies of the parliamentary majority, following a vote for a new speaker. In addition, journalists were detained in the press center of the Parliament.

Demonstrators forced their way into the building after the Social Democrats and the parties representing ethnic Albanians elected a parliament speaker in a vote that Gruevski’s party didn’t recognize, MIA said.

As Bloomberg reports, the former Yugoslav state of 2 million people has struggled to find a way out of political deadlock after former Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski failed to for a coalition government following an inconclusive snap vote five months ago. Gruevski’s ally, President Gjorge Ivanov, has refused to give a mandate to the opposition Social Democrats, which say they can form a majority-backed government with parties representing ethnic Albanians.

Marine Le Pen Embarrasses Macron

Marine Le Pen is not out of the race for the French presidency by any stretch. Le Pen embarrassed pretty boy Emmanuel Macron in his home town today.
Macron was visiting a Whirlpool clothes dryer plant that was closing in Amiens in northern France in an attempt to smooth over his image of a snooty, private school upbringing that rocketed the young man to socialist Economics minister at age 36.
Poorer voters in small-town France have flocked to Le Pen.
While Macron calmly met with union reps from the factory, Le Pen suddenly appeared unannounced at the factory gates and posed with picketing workers. The event was covered live on most French TV news channels.

Greece's pensioners to suffer MORE: Europe demands austerity as debt hits £268BILLION

GREEK politicians are being told to go after the country's already squeezed pensioners as it faces yet more austerity measures.

Germany and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) have failed to make an agreement over the conditions of a new bail out package.

And while the country's debt bubble continues to mount, as it tries to cope with the migrant crisis from 2015, its citizens are being penalised.

Thousands of hungry, cold and desperate pensioners have taken to the streets of the country to protest at Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras handling of the debt crisis.

As the world focuses on the Middle Eastern and Korean flashpoints, the next war may not occur in either region, but rather in a replay of an old conflict that has been largely forgotten.

In an interview with Politico’s European edition, Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama threatened war if Kosovo is denied entry into the European Union:

“Albania’s prime minister said a union between Albania and Kosovo cannot be ruled out if EU membership prospects for the Western Balkans fade.

“In an interview with Politico … Prime Minister Edi Rama said Europe would face ‘a nightmare’ if the Balkans ‘go crazy’ because EU accession is off the agenda, with the region becoming a ‘gray zone in which other actors have more influence than the European Union.’”

ARE EU JOKING?! UK 'must contribute to Brussels budget until 2020 for good Brexit deal'

Britain’s EU exit will leave the bloc’s budget around £8.5billion (€10billion) lighter, leaving European leaders fearful they may have to significantly boost their contributions after Brexit.

EU officials are trying to find a way of softening the financial blow to the bloc after Brexit, particularly between Britain’s departure in March 2019 and the end of the current seven-year budget framework which ends in 2020.

Now, British officials are debating whether to maintain payments until the end of the seven-year economic plan in 2020, in order to improve relations between Britain and the bloc in the hope of getting a good trade deal.

IMF Meeting Signals Descent into Global Trade War

The current chair of the committee, Agustin Carstens, the governor of the Bank of Mexico, sought to cover over the significance of the decision by suggesting that the previous wording had been removed because “the use of the word protectionism is very ambiguous.”

In reality, the omission of any disavowal of protectionism is an unmistakable expression of mounting trade tensions, fueled above all by the Trump administration.

These conflicts could not be completely suppressed at the meeting. In his statement to the IMFC, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble said

Germany “commits to keep the global economy open, resist protectionism and keep global economic and financial cooperation on track.”

This statement stood in stark contrast to the remarks of US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. He said the US would

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Secretary Mnuchin, a word, please.

The US manufacturing industry (or what hasn't been offshored/outsourced) needs to reimagine itself, and reposition itself toward making things people want to buy, and are durable.

Value engineering has to go the way of the dodo bird, and the dribble glass; it is just that simple.

And heaven help us, no sane, rational country on the face of this planet wants to buy our GMO agriculture. We see that consistently with China, which has a firm policy of not buying American, GMO-produced fruits and vegetables.

Blaming China and Germany for the failings of American manufacturing and monetary policies, are no substitute for fixing the problems American manufacturing and agriculture have to fix, to make US companies competitive again.

You're welcome!!

TURKISH AIRSTRIKES ON KURDS COMPLICATE U.S. OPERATIONS IN IRAQ AND SYRIA

A few hour ago the Turkish airforce hit Kurdish and Yezidi positons on both sides of the Singal mountains in east-Syria and west-Iraq. Near Derik in east-Syria more than 20 bombs destroyed a YPG headquarter, a radio station and a media center. At least nine YPK fighters were killed. The YPG is the Syrian sister organization of the Kurdish PKK in Turkey. The PKK is a designated terrorist organization. Within Syria U.S. special forces are embedded with the YPG and are coordinating YPG moves against the Islamic State in Raqqa. YPK and PKK follow the anarcho-marxist theories of their leader Abdullah Öcalan who is in isolation detention in Turkey.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question is, what can the US offer Erdogan's Turkey, to make it comfortable with in an independent Kurdistan, when the Turkish government has made it clear that ethnic Kurds in their country are persona non grata, and done their best to suppress Kurdish political parties?!?

But until, and unless, the US has something to offer Turkey, in exchange for them accepting the reality of an independent Kurdistan, these attacks will continue, and most probably worsen.

Then there were two empires: the Western and the Soviet one, and each of them was fueling conflicts with the rival on the territory of third countries, but never within its borders and never directly. Even the public rhetoric was softer. The two camps did not cross the bounds of what was permitted. Today, there are no more rules," Sergei Lavrov told Esquire magazine.

Granskning Sverige (Review Sweden) is a citizen journalism initiative where ordinary citizens call opinion makers, journalists, and politicians to ask them the questions the establishment media journalists avoid at all cost. The initiative was started by the pseudonym Johan Andersson in 2014. Shortly after the start the pseudonym Erik Johansson joined in the effort to change the media narrative in Sweden. After that we have had a couple of citizens joining, and a few quitting, but Nina Drakfors was the first to use her real identity in the GS effort. We also have the pseudonyms Arg Norrlänning (Angry Northerner), Feministinspektionen (The feminist inspection), and a few others with their own YouTube channels in this slowly growing citizen’s movement to hold the pc-crowd accountable for the damage they have caused Sweden.

Serbia Warns Albania Bid to Annex Kosovo Could Lead to War

erbian officials are warning that the Albanian ambitions to absorb Kosovo could easily lead to another war in the Balkans, and that NATO and the European Union need to publicly rule out that possibility in an effort to forestall another ethnic war spanning the region.

The status of Kosovo is a big sore spot in the region, after NATO’s 1999 war imposed a separation of Kosovo from Serbia, which was supposed by the Kosovar Albanian majority but widely opposed by ethnic Serbs in Kosovo. Kosovo’s independence is heavily contested, with a number of countries refusing to recognize it.

This could spiral out of control, and descend into another round of warfare in the Balkans very, very quickly.

IMF says Greece needs to dig even deeper

The International Monetary Fund had a sobering message for Greece this weekend: Even if the country secures debt relief from its European creditors -- a question that is by no means assured with bailout talks still deadlocked -- the nation still needs even more painful economic overhauls than currently planned.

Seven years into an economic crisis and another near-term financial emergency looming, that is a message no Greek wants to hear and a key reason why the IMF is also urging Germany and Athens' other European creditors to give the country hope in the form of real debt relief.

The country's "fiscal and structural reforms...pension reforms, tax reforms, are only a down payment," said Poul Thomsen, IMF's European department chief and Greece's original bailout architect, on the sidelines of the fund's semiannual meeting of finance ministers and central bankers.

Turkey says it may suspend migrant deal with EU

Ankara will present a new document in May on its visa-free deal with the EU which if not accepted would put the refugee deal with the bloc at a standstill, EU Minister Ömer Çelik has said.

In an interview with private news channel CNN Turk on Aprik 22, Çelik said Turkey was doing its part in the deal with EU.

He said the refugee deal between the two sides would continue if the EU accepted Ankara’s fresh offer that would be submitted in May.

“If they accept our proposal, the [refugee] deal would be completed in a positive way, otherwise it would come to a standstill,” he said.

The EU and Turkey agreed in March last year on a plan to stop migration through illegal channels in the Aegean Sea by cracking down on human traffickers and improving the conditions of nearly 3 million Syrian refugees in Turkey.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Turkey reneges on this deal, all hell will break loose in Europe, which is already straining, economically and socially, from the huge impacts of previous waves of immigration from the Middle East and North Africa.

No wonder they wanted us to stay! UK leaving EU without deal 'would cost Germany BILLIONS'

BRITAIN leaving the EU without a deal would end up costing the remaining eurozone countries more, especially Germany, a Bundestag committee has been warned.

A hearing of the Bundestag’s European Committee was told by experts that Germany would incur extra costs because it is the largest net contributor to the EU’s kitty.

If Britain were to leave the bloc without a deal, then it would no longer be obliged to transfer any money to Brussels from April 2019 onwards and would not need to contribute to the future pension costs of EU officials, which stands at a sizeable £54.1billion (€63.8bn)

Dr Peter Becker, 58, at Germany’s Institute for International Policy and Security, told the committee: "The EU would then have no legal means to demand outstanding payments from London.”

This disease is infectious. If somebody does not maintain sanitary standards, he will get ill and infect all the others. It was evident when such a huge flow of migrants was coming to Europe.

Backtracking on his previous opposition to negotiating with the crumbling Brussels bloc, the President softened his stance after individual EU member states rejected attempts by his officials to start talks on separate trade agreements.

According to the Times, German chancellor Angela Merkel managed to convince Trump at a private dinner last month that striking a deal between the US and EU would be simpler than he thought.

In Paris, the media want you to think that the latest Islamic terrorist attack is no big deal…just the ‘new normal’

Days before the first round of voting in the French presidential election, the people of Paris got another taste of Islam’s ‘peaceful’ cultural enrichment. Let’s see if they vote for more of that ‘new normal’ which falls off the front pages in a day or two. Or survival.

Analyst Who Predicted Trump's Rise Bets On Le Pen Victory

"Le Pen’s momentum is a slow-moving reaction against the men of Davos - as we have seen with Brexit and Trump - but markets don’t want to believe it."
That’s the conclusion drawn by Charles Gave, founder of Hong-Kong based asset-allocation consultancy GaveKal Research, who, as Bloomberg reports, predicted the triumph of Donald Trump in the U.S. election, and is now betting on a win for the anti-euro National Front candidate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Le Pen's potential victory is going to signal the end of the Euro, as a currency, if not the European Union entirely.

“Yes. I don't like it,” said Schaeuble.

In an interview conducted by Swiss newspaper Tribune de Geneve published Wednesday, Mr. Onfray warned that due to persistent demonisation of the Front National and Le Pen in French media, there could be a violent public reaction if she wins the presidency.

“As soon as there is an announcement of her victory, some will angrily march in the streets,” he said.

“HUNTING FOR EASTER FASCISM”: CAMPAIGN AGAINST LE PEN IS IN FULL SWING

The main object of Le Pen’s criticism became bankers, European bureaucrats, Brussels, technocrats and finanancial lobby. They have huge power and, that’s why, they take a decision without considering people’s will.

“They control our laws; they are leading us to our surrender and subordination. They owe our territories and we cannot decide anymore who comes to our country. They own our rights: the French in France have fewer rights than foreigners”, - Mrs. Le Pen mentioned. The leader of the National Front reminded about a threat from terrorists, drug dealers, and mafia, which are the consequences of non-controlled borders in France.

“The principle of solidarity does not reflect the interests of sovereign policy in France anymore”, - Mrs. Le Pen added. “This reflects not only the material aspects of life: the shortage of work places,infringement of native citizens’ rights and so on, but it reflects the loss of our own history and culture”.

Is Euroland on Verge of Disintegration?

The decision last year by a majority of British voters to exit the European Union was more than a simple vote of the people. The Brexit campaign was promoted and financed by the most influential banks of the City of London and by the British Royal House. Far from the end of Britain, Brexit is far more likely to be the beginning of the end of the disastrous Euro single currency experiment .

The Glorious Achievement of US's Ukropia

One of the greatest achievements of US State Department (Ms. Nuland in particular) and the mass media propaganda machine (NYT and WaPo in particular), was the Ukrainian mess.

Russophobia, hatred, paranoia, violence, rehabilitation of nazi ideology. It all worked in unison and created an entity that split Europe in half, as it itself got split. But Russia was clearly weakened, and so was its cooperation with Europe.

So why stop there? We know that bad examples are extremely infectious. Stupid politicians and the press that has engendered Ukistan, have decided to re-apply the methodology to the States and Europe. If it worked so well within the culture that used to treat Russians like brothers, it would surely work even better among traditionally Russophobic cultures, like Polish, British, or American. It is now working at full speed in Germany and Sweden.

The Communist Party are On the Ballots Once Again in the UK: The Hammer and Sickle Flying Proudly

When voters in Birmingham received their ballots through the door for the upcoming “Metro” Mayoral Elections taking place on next month, many were surprised to see the “Hammer and Sickle” logo and a Communist party candidate. Apparently the deaths of 150,000,000 odd people has not been quite enough to shame activists into silence. And what may be even more surprising, is that the “Communist Party of Great Britain” never actually went away. It has been operating openly and working on the sidelines of British politics for almost 100 years.

Theresa May calls for UK general election on 8 June

Theresa May has said she wants to hold a snap general election on 8 June, despite repeatedly claiming that she was against the idea of an early vote.

A Lesson On Immigration That The US Can Learn From Europe (Not The EU)

How many refugees has the US taken in the last year? And how many asylum seekers? Are they classed as the same? And where are they today? Most importantly, were adequate checks in place to ensure that not only do they have a valid claim, but also that there are no disqualifying factors? As you’d imagine, not only are there contradictory answers to all of these questions, but the information seems purposely obfuscated.
