Vice-Chancellor: TTIP trade deal is dead

Vice-Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel said on Sunday that negotiations on a massive trade deal between the European Union and the United States were effectively dead in the water.

"The talks with the US have de facto failed because we Europeans of course must not succumb to American demands," he told public broadcaster ZDF.

"Nothing is moving forward."

EUROPE: WAR MECHANISM LAUNCHED

Europe is inexorably nearing the brink of civil war. What is the essence of this war? In order to understand this, we should pay attention to the two major forces that are unleashing this war and becoming its main poles. On the one hand, there are the hordes of migrants from the Middle East and North Africa. On the other, there are European nationalists whose influence and determination is growing in strict proportion to the number of migrants. Hence the equation: the more migrants, the more nationalists, and the more that migrants resort to violence, the more hysterical and harsh the nationalists’ response will be.

UK Chancellor Philip Hammond Works Against May To Slow Brexit

UK Chancellor Philip Hammond is trying to put a halt to the British Prime Minister Theresa May’s plan for the country to leave the European Union as quickly as possible.

German Economy Minister: "TTIP Talks Have Failed"

In the latest blow for Obama's global trade agenda, German Vice Chancellor and Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel said that free trade talks between the European Union and the United States have failed, citing a lack of progress on any of the major sections of the long-running negotiations. "In my opinion the negotiations with the United States have de facto failed, even though nobody is really admitting it" ZDF quoted the minister, according to a written transcript of the interview to be aired on Sunday. “[They] have failed because we Europeans did not want to subject ourselves to American demands.”

Norway Builds A Wall, Because Migrants

The Left always complains that the United States isn't more like Europe, particularly Scandinavia, and now the joke's on them because Norway now plans to build a border wall to halt the flow of illegal migrants pouring in from Russia.

This racist display of European white supremacy will be a 660 foot-long steel fence stretching 11 feet high and will run from the Storskog border crossing on the Norway-Russia border.

'Single currency experiment has been a disaster' admits Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz in The Euro

"Europe, the source of the Enlightenment, the birthplace of modern science, is in crisis.” So says Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel Prize-winning economist and sometime chairman of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisors.

“Large parts of Europe” have endured “a lost decade”; incomes per head are “lower than before the [2008] global financial crisis”. While Germany is doing “relatively well”, there’s “soaring youth unemployment” in France, Italy and Spain. “In a well-functioning economy, there’s rapid growth, the benefits of which are shared widely,” Stiglitz writes, but “in Europe we see the opposite”.

So what, he asks, is the “big policy problem”, Europe’s “one underlying mistake”? To some, his conclusion may be surprising. For Stiglitz points his finger squarely at “the fatal decision to adopt a single currency, without first providing the institutions to make it work”.

Brexit may send EU 'down the drain' - German vice chancellor

Germany's vice-chancellor has warned the future of the EU could be in doubt if the UK's exit is handled badly.

Sigmar Gabriel said the EU would go "down the drain" if other states followed Britain's lead and that the UK could not keep the "nice things" about Europe while taking no responsibility.

It comes as Theresa May summoned ministers for a meeting on Wednesday to discuss ideas for the UK's withdrawal.

Downing Street said Brexit was "top" of the prime minister's agenda.

Plans for EU army back on as Brussels fat cats take advantage of Brexit

The plans are the brainchild of Hungary's right-wing Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who believes that Europe should strengthen its military capabilities to bolster security.

Mr Orban put pressure on Angela Merkel and her band of EU fat cats over the issue at a meeting with the German chancellor and the prime ministers of Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia.

He said: "We should list the issue of security as a priority, and we should start setting up a common European army."

Theresa May will trigger Brexit negotiations without Commons vote

Theresa May will not hold a parliamentary vote on Brexit before opening negotiations to formally trigger Britain's withdrawal from the European Union, The Telegraph has learned.

Opponents of Brexit claim that because the EU referendum result is advisory it must be approved by a vote in the Commons before Article 50 - the formal mechanism to leave the EU - is triggered.

However, in a move which will cheer Eurosceptics, The Telegraph has learned that Mrs May will invoke Article 50 without a vote in Parliament

EU tries to twist Gazprom's arms before freezing in winter

The ultimate goal of the EU is clear: Russia should not build a pipeline bypassing Ukraine, as Kiev would lose a source of its income, and the EU would lose its leverage for Moscow. The worse it is for Russia, the better it is for the West - this is a well-known postulate. The third energy package of the EU therefore demands the owner of the pipeline and the gas supplier be different subjects. This is a weapon against Gazprom. If there were a Western energy corporation in Gazprom's place, such as Shell or BP, we would not see any form of the Third Energy Package. In addition, the European Union is obsessed with the idea to switch to other sources of fuel supplies, for example from Qatar or Iran. Supplies of liquefied natural gas from the United States are also possible. Yet, the above options require considerable investments that the EU can not afford. For the time being, the EU has TANAP - the Trans-Anatolian gas pipeline, approved by the European Commission.

Kosovo: Europe's grey area used by criminals, extremists

Kosovo is a grey area in the heart of Europe and an abode for criminals and radical extremists, the Russian Ambassador to the UN, Vitaly Churkin said on Thursday as he took the floor at a session of the UN Security Council, which discussed the Kosovo peace settlement. "The feebleness of law enforcement and the security structure in Kosovo has transformed the region into a grey area in the heart of Europe, which Islamic radicals, as well as members of criminal networks use as an abode and a transit point," he said. "This facilitates the use of the territory by extremist groups for the recruitment and training of militants," Churkin explained. "Kosovo ranks among Europe's top three for the number of IS combatants per capita of the local population, and that's why should any measures be taken to check the situation, they would still be clearly insufficient," he stressed.

Slovakia's PM speaks out against anti-Russian sanctions

"In my opinion is it is high time to reconsider the sanctions from a rational point of view and say that they are harmful for both the EU and Russia," he said. "They have not settled the problem, which they were supposed to influence." On Thursday, the Slovak prime minister visited Russia, where he had a meeting with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin. "Yesterday, with Vladimir Putin we came to the common opinion that our purpose is to develop mutual trade," Fico wrote on his Facebook page. At present, Slovakia is currently chairing the European Council for a six-month period. In the past, Slovakia’s prime minister has come out in favor of having the anti-Russian sanctions lifted several times. Fico said that his government is interested in correcting the current situation in the relations between the EU and Russia. According to him, Slovakia is committed to restoring full partnership and mutually beneficial cooperation between Brussels and Moscow.

Hungary to build a second ‘massive’ wall to keep out migrants heading from Turkey

Hungary will build a new, 'more massive' fence on its southern borders to defend against a possible surge in the number of migrants, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Friday.

Orban, who earlier said migrants were 'poison', said on state radio that there may soon be a 'greater need for security' and the fortified barrier would be able to stop 'several hundreds of thousands of people' at the same time, if needed. He did not say when construction could start.

Orban said the surge could take place if, for example, Turkey allows the millions of refugees living there to leave for Western Europe.

EU is ‘BIGGER threat than Russia' Danish MP warns of Brussels power as DEXIT calls grow

When asked whether the EU was the biggest danger, Ms Kararup replied: “For Denmark? Yes, without a doubt!

“Just Schengen alone is a catastrophe.

“It’s something that will make Denmark disappear from the world map if we don’t pull ourselves together.

“That national borders have been disbanded is a threat against Denmark’s existence.”

At the same time, according to Swedish migration authority (Migrationsverket) statistics reported in newspaper Sydsvenskan, at least 10,665 people have voluntarily departed Sweden in the period between January and August 2016.

Greek Debt And The New Financial Imperialism

This week marks the first anniversary of the 2015 Greek debt crisis, the third in that country’s recent history since 2010. Last Aug. 20-21, 2015, the ‘Troika’—i.e., the pan-European institutions of the European Commission (EC), the European Central Bank (ECB), plus the IMF-imposed a third debt deal on Greece. Greece was given US$98 billion in loans from the Troika. A previous 2012 Troika imposed debt deal had added nearly US$200 billion to an initial 2010 debt deal of US$140 billion.

MORE EU FINANCIAL CHAOS: Portugal in desperate £3.8bn bid to stabilise its banking system

PORTUGAL is set to inject billions of euros into its biggest bank in the hope of stabilising the country's economy.

The €5billion (£3.8bn) planned recapitalization of Caixa Geral de Depositos carefully side-steps European Commission new rules that mean state cash can't be used to shore up banks.

Under the plans, the government will put in money into the bank but it's hoped it will get more money back after Caixa will also issue out highly subordinated debt.

Will Europe crumble and disappear? Aug24

“The open-door immigration policy of the European Union is justified by pointing out Europe’s guilt for past colonial sins. Well, I have news. You can go anywhere in the world, focus in on any nation, any tribe, and you can discover that, at some point in the past, they did grievous harm to some other group, nation, tribe, or to their own people. You can use history to claim that everybody should give back everything to everybody else. Everybody should be down on their knees, weeping and gnashing their teeth and giving away all they have. Stimulating guilt in order to seize and maintain power is a strategy as old as the hills, but the current generation seems never to have heard of it.”

Here We Go Again. Serbia Has a New Government

Aleksandar Vucic failed to keep the promise that he made during his visit to Moscow on May 2016 to form a new government by mid-June. The government was formed 14 weeks after the snap elections that were held from April 24 to May 4, 2016. There is little doubt that the procedure was delayed due to the complex political situation in Serbia and the ambivalent position of Aleksandar Vucic and his Serbian Progressive Party (SNS). On the one hand, if the opinion polls are to be believed, the Prime Minister’s approval rating is considerable and he has the support of nearly half of the population. His trump card is his dramatic, expansive and emotional style, coupled with confidence, a command of the facts and a knack for turning a patently losing situation into an attractive ideologeme. On the other hand, the actions of the last government ran counter to the values and perceptions that the politically active segment of society has formed since October 5, 2000.

The run-off vote in October will pit two highly contrasting candidates against each other once again, following an initial vote in April and a first, annulled run-off vote in May.

Former Greens leader Alexander Van der Bellen is running as an independent against Norbert Hofer, the candidate for the Freedom Party (FPO) - a Eurosceptic, anti-immigrant party that is gaining ground in the country.

While Mr Van der Bellen won the first run-off, the FPO successfully appealed the decision following accusations of voters fraud.

Speaking on Radio Sputnik’s Loud & Clear program, Pilger declared that Brexit is the last nail in the coffin of the EU. “It’s very hard to find anyone in Europe who supports” the bloc, he said, referring to surveys conducted across the EU in the aftermath of the UK referendum.

“With democracy being sidelined in so many institutions in Brussels, I think many people in Europe will be feeling that it is time for their countries do what Britain did.”

Brewing Collapse of the Western Monetary System? German Government Warns of an Upcoming Catastrophe, Tags Russia as an “Enemy Nation”

On a related note, against many Members of Parliament and several ministers, the German Bundeswehr (army) has declared Russia as an enemy nation. This is akin to a declaration of war. The head of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Russian State Duma, Alexei Puschkow, has posted the Twitter message:

‘The decision of the German government declaring Russia to be an enemy shows Merkel’s subservience to the Obama administration.’

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to say that things are looking up, geopolitically, and that peace may break out; unfortunately, I cannot say that with a straight face right now.

The best you can do is not panic, but prepare, as we have stated all along.

Make sure that you have storable food; potable water; and any medications which you (or your pets) may take safely stored as well.

Make sure your bug-out kit is up to date, and please do know your kids' school's policy for releasing them before the end of their school day, and under what circumstances they can go back to their parents before then.

Have a pre-approved gathering place, if people are separated, to regroup.

The more you take care of this now, the easier it will be to withstand a real crisis if the excrement does hit the ventilation shaft soon.

I am no Nostradamus; but looking at the gathering collection of tensions, geopolitically, I cannot bet against a major military confrontation, involving US troops, possibly well before the end of the year.

I hope to heck I am wrong, but that's what it feels like to me.

REVEALED: ECB SECRETLY HANDS CASH TO SELECT CORPORATIONS

In June, the ECB began buying the bonds of some of the most powerful companies in Europe as well as the European subsidiaries of foreign multinationals. This pushed the average yield on euro investment-grade corporate debt to 0.65%. Large quantities of highly rated corporate debt with shorter maturities are trading at negative yields, where brainwashed investors engage in the absurdity of paying for the privilege of lending money to corporations. By August 12, the ECB had handed out over €16 billion in freshly printed money in exchange for corporate bonds. Throughout, the public was given to understand that the ECB was buying already-issued bonds trading in secondary markets. But the public has been fooled.

EU mocked for suggesting it 'won' the Olympics

The message was accompanied by a graphic which showed the European Union standing in first place on an Olympic podium, while the United States took second place and China languished in third place.

The tally combines medals won by British athletes with those of their European counterparts and has led to the EU being accused of trying to "piggyback" on Team GB's Olympic triumphs.

It sparked an immediate backlash on social media, with one user responding: "This is disgusting EU propaganda! Did you asked the sports man and woman [sic] if they agree with this."

"The "European Union" were NOT participants in #Olympics at #Rio2016 so stop pretending you were part of it," fumed another.

A third replied: "[This is] the perfect definition of piggy-backing...Might as well do a humanity league table."

Two More Banks Start Charging Select Clients For Holding Cash

Last weekend, when we reported that Germany's Raiffeisenbank Gmund am Tegernsee - a community bank in southern Germany - said it would start charging retail clients a fee of 0.4% on deposits of more than €100,000 we said that "now that a German banks has finally breached the retail depositor NIRP barrier, expect many more banks to follow."

Not even a week later, not one but two large banks have done just that.

Overnight, the Irish Times reported that Bank of Ireland is set to become the first domestic financial institution to pass on the ECB's negative rates to customers for placing their money on deposit with the bank. The newspaper has learned that Bank of Ireland, which is 14% owned by the State, has informed its large corporate and institutional customers that it plans to charge them a negative rate of -0.1% for deposits of €10 million or more starting in October.

Webmaster's Commentary:

The four-battalion rotational presence would include US troops in Poland, British forces in Estonia, German troops in Lithuania and Canadian forces in Latvia.
