‘Yes’ to death penalty will mean ‘No’ to EU membership

‘Yes’ to death penalty will mean ‘No’ to EU membership, EU warns Turkey

Reinstating the death penalty in Turkey would end EU accession talks, a German government spokesman has stated. Meanwhile, EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini also warned that no country can become an EU member that has capital punishment.

“Introduction of death penalty would mean immediate suspension of accession talks,” German government spokesman Steffen Seibert said on Monday.

Turkey is part of the Council of Europe and is bound by the European Convention on Human Rights, the EU Foreign Policy Chief noted.

“No country can become an EU member state if it introduces the death penalty,” she said. “Turkey is an important part of the Council of Europe and is bound by the European Convention on Human Rights, which is very clear on the death penalty.”

Farage claims parts of France and Brussels are 'virtually lawless' and dangerous for women

The Ukip leader, who recently announced his intention to stand down, has said women, especially those with blonde hair, are "repeatedly stopped" on the street in the Belgian capital.

Mr Farage was speaking on LBC in the wake of the Nice terror attack last week, which has raised questions about the capability of the French security and intelligence community.

He said: "I have to say I am worried about France and I have been worried working in Brussels for some time.

"Just large parts of that city are now virtually lawless.

"Very difficult in the centre of Brussels for women at night to walk alone, particularly if they are blonde-haired.

"They get repeatedly stopped and pestered and something has gone badly wrong."

  July 17, 2016US-NATO Border Confrontation with Russia Risks Nuclear War and Loss of European Partners

As a matter of fact, what NATO is trying to do is to goad Russia into building up an army so it can undercut its economy by diverting more and more resources away from the economy towards the military. Russia's not falling for it. Putin said that Russia has no intention of mounting a land army. It is unthinkable that it could even want to invade the Baltics or Poland. But Putin did say we have one means of retaliation, and that's atomic bombs. Atomic weapons are basically defensive. They're saying, we don't need an army anymore. Nor does any country need an army if they have an atomic weapon, because if you attack us we'll wipe you out. And we'll be wiped out, too, but you're never going to be able to conquer us. And no country, really, can conquer any other country. Russia can't conquer Europe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just because something is the most ham-fistedly, pigheadedly stupid thing for the US government to do is, unfortunately, no guarantee that it won't do it.

War with Russia and/or China, would be madness for the US and NATO at this time, because they don't have the weaponry, the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against either or both countries.

Italy Tasks JPMorgan With Creating A €50 Billion Bank Bailout

Three months ago, when Italy's renewed bank troubles were reemerging again, and the country unveiled its first, and certainly not last, "bad bank" in the shape of the "Atlas" (or Atlante) bailout fund, we - as well as everyone else - mocked it for one obvious reason - at only €5 billion it was far too small to make an impact, as we explained in "Size Matters: Analysts Mock Italy's Tiny "Atlas" Bailout Fund Meant To Support €360BN In Bad Debt."

In late June, following the Brexit vote when the Italian bank undercapitalization and the nation's massive bad debt problem was once again exposed, it became all too obvious just how undercapitalized Italy truly is when in one attempt after another, Italy's Prime Minister Matteo Renzi begged Europe to allow him to implement a €50 billion bailout (not a bail-in) of Italy's banks contrary to the new BRRD regulations.

“What? The US(A CORP) not following it’s own promises or treaties?” What a “surprise”!

““The Americans are placing nukes in Germany, supposedly to counter Putin’s aggression in the Baltics. Do the Americans seriously expect us to believe in such stupidity?” asked Mrs. Wagenknecht to an applause from other MPs.

The demise of Sanders’ “political revolution”

Throughout the Sanders campaign, the Socialist Equality Party has welcomed the broad shift to the left that it revealed in the thinking of millions of working people and youth, while warning that the Vermont senator would inevitably disappoint his supporters.

Bernie Sanders ended his presidential campaign Tuesday, not with a bang but a whimper. The Vermont senator formally endorsed his rival in an undignified prostration before the Democratic Party establishment and Wall Street’s favored presidential candidate, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The unity rally featuring Sanders and Clinton in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, had all the spontaneity and enthusiasm of a going-out-of-business sale. The funereal atmosphere was perhaps fitting

TRUMP TEAM SCORES BIG WIN AS RNC WRITES ITS CONVENTION RULES

The Never Trump movement tried to make a stand. It failed by a massive margin.

CLEVELAND — Efforts to block Donald Trump’s nomination — hyped for months by proponents as a growing grass-roots movement among Republican activists attending this week’s convention — turned out to be a flop.

During key votes on Thursday evening, only 12 hard-core holdouts continued to resist Trump’s nomination when members of on the powerful 112-member Convention Rules Committee considered a proposal to prevent delegates from rejecting Trump.

Tony Blair’s Former Propagandist: “Referendums Are Dangerous in a Parliamentary Democracy”

In an interview with Hala Gorani of CNN, the man who served as Tony (the war criminal) Blair’s Director of Communications from 1997 to 2003, Alastair Campbell, denounced referendums as a danger to democracy. Campbell is clearly enraged that the British people had the audacity to vote against the wishes of the establishment; and his remarks are the epitome of elitist thinking – which holds that ordinary people are too stupid to make important decisions on their own.

Campbell is also regurgitating the Orwellian propaganda line that is being spread throughout the Western media: that somehow a democratic referendum is undemocratic. Just because the vote flew in the face of the British establishment, the presstitutes are engaging in intellectual jujitsu in order to demonise the leave vote. Would they be doing so if Britain voted to remain in the EU? I think not.

Western-Backed Chechen “Freedom Fighter” Named as Istanbul Attack Mastermind

The true extent of U.S.-NATO involvement in the Chechen struggle for independence is still a well-guarded secret but Chatayev’s story sheds some light on dubious Western machinations that have fueled terrorism in Russia and beyond.

In 2003, “Akhmed One-Arm” moved to Austria. He was granted asylum and received Austrian citizenship. While enjoying Austrian hospitality, Chatayev made extensive use of his new passport that “allowed him to travel freely in Europe and elsewhere.”

Russian media reports suggest that Chatayev was wanted by Russian authorities since 2003 on suspicion of recruiting fighters and raising funds for the North Caucasus insurgency. According to sources in Chechen Islamic groups, this task was assigned to him by none other than Caucasus Emirate leader Doku Umarov.[9]

Neither Chatayev’s close connection to Umarov nor his criminal activities seemed to bother anyone in the West. Russia repeatedly tried to get him extradited, to no avail.

Sweden: Rampant Sexual Assaults Steam On

The police released a report noting that Sweden is at the top of the EU's statistics on physical and sexual violence against women, sexual harassment and stalking. The report stated unequivocally that it is "asylum-seeker boys" and "foreign men" who commit the vast majority of the reported crimes.

As far as the widespread sexual assaults at public pools are concerned, the police said that in four out of five cases, the perpetrators have been "unaccompanied refugee children".

A survey by the National Board of Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen) suggested that as many as 38,000 women in Sweden may have been subjected to female genital mutilation (FGM). Yet health care services rarely help women with the complications associated with FGM.

A Swedish father was told that he and his two children are being thrown out of the house they are renting from the municipality -- to make room for an immigrant family.

Dutchman sentenced to month in jail for insulting king

A Dutchman has been sentenced to 30 days in jail under a rarely enforced 19th century law for intentionally insulting King Willem-Alexander, according to a court ruling published on Thursday.

The 44-year-old man from the city of Kampen, whose name was not released, had posted a message on his Facebook page in April 2015 calling the king a murderer, rapist, “oppressor” and thief.

“Hereby the defendant damaged the dignity of the King,” wrote judge Sylvia Taalman in her decision. “This behaviour is not acceptable in our society.”

Many Dutch consider the law “Insulting the Majesty” to be an antiquated relic that should be scrapped, but it has never featured high on the country’s political agenda.

Vladimir Putin Is The Only Leader The West Has — Paul Craig Roberts

Putin does not want war. He is doing everything in his power to avoid it.

The trip-point of World War III will be the installation of Washington’s missiles in Poland and Romania. As Putin recently made clear to the imbecilic Western journalists, these missiles can easily and secretly be changed from anti-ballistic missiles to nuclear attack missiles that can strike their Russian targets within 5 or fewer minutes of launch, thus depriving Russia of its retaliatory deterrent. Once these missiles are in place, Washington can issue orders to Russia.

Whatever the evil men and women in Washington who are gambling with the life of the planet think, Russia is not going to accept these missiles.

'We won't stop until we reach England': Inside the migrant camp on George Clooney's doorstep where hundreds of refugees sleep rough in the Italian idyll Lake Como after Switzerland shut its border 

Italy's celebrity hideaway Lake Como has become home to hundreds of migrants after the nearby crossing into Switzerland was blocked by Swiss officials.

Lake Como has long served as a tranquil paradise for the rich and famous, including George Clooney and Madonna.

But the town's railway station has been transformed into a makeshift camp, where the families live surrounded by discarded clothes, shoes, food containers and even rats.

Tensions are mounting in the luxury resort with more tents springing up every hour as more people arrive from Milan on their journey to northern Europe.

Brussels offers EU states £8k for EVERY refugee they agree to house and BRITAIN foots bill

Europe’s elite are offering member states €10,000 (£8,400) for EVERY refugee it homes, and will turn to UK taxpayers to pick up the tab.

The desperate measure is being introduced in an attempt to ease the growing migrant chaos on the continent, with huge numbers of refugees stranded in Greece and Italy.

But it will raise fears that Eurocrats are looking to squeeze Britain for every last penny before it officially quits the bloc and withdraw our £8.5billion annual net contribution.

Now experiencing a unique economic recovery, the Icelandic public became aware in 2008 that the nation’s private banks had borrowed some $120 billion dollars, ten times the size of Iceland’s economy, creating an economic bubble which forced housing prices to double, and saddled the nation’s people with debt.

NATO Not to Cooperate With Moscow in Usual Format Until Minsk Obligations Fulfilled - Obama
NATO leaders agreed on Friday to deploy military forces to the Baltic states and eastern Poland while increasing air and sea patrols to demonstrate readiness to defend eastern members against the alleged ‘Russian aggression.'
Mikhail Gorbachev reportedly said after the summit that the decisions made at NATO summit in Warsaw should be regarded as a preparation for a hot war with Russia.

On Saturday, Gorbachev told Echo Moskvy in an interview that he sticks to what he had said earlier and that he considers NATO decisions short-sighted and dangerous.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This man is not only an adept student of history; during his time as President of the Soviet Union, he was also a very powerful creator of history as well.

And remember; if President Obama declares martial law as a result of these riots in the US, if they escalate, he may stay in office during a "transitional period", and this will give him both time, and carte blanche to work with NATO in declaring war against Russia, with both no Congressional or popular support on launching such a war.

And if Russia gives Obama no military cause to create war, NATO and the west will just create a false flag incident to be blamed on Russia to start the war.

Unfortunately, just because a move would be the most pig-headedly, ham-fistedly stupid thing the American government can do is absolutely no guarantee that it will not be done.

And a war against Russia would be one of the most pig-headedly, ham-fistedly stupid thing the US government could possibly, in either the long or short term.

The US military doesn't have the troops strength, the weaponry, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against either Russia and/or China, and if they don't understand this, we are all headed for a great amount of hurt.

Brexit: Could a Messy Divorce Damage NATO?

But as the ramifications of the UK’s exit from the EU and the myriad potential problems, pitfalls, and divisions that this process could trigger – or once again force to the surface – begin to become clear, the question can be asked: how will this affect the relationship of NATO allies and the cohesion and stability of the Alliance? If the UK’s divorce from the EU becomes a messy and painful affair it will strain relations between the two and could spill over into the NATO realm. NATO’s integrity being vulnerable may sound far-fetched, but not long ago so too did the UK leaving the EU.

Deutsche Bank's Chief Economist Calls For €150 Billion Bailout Of European Banks

The cards have been tipped, and it appears Italy's Prime Minister may have been right.

In the aftermath of Brexit, much of the investing public's attention has turned to Italian banks which are in desperate need of a bailout as a result of €360 billion in bad loans growing worse by the day (and not a bail-in, as European regulations mandate, as that would lead to an immediate bank run) to avoid a freeze and/or collapse of Italy's banking sector. This has pushed stock prices - and default risk - on Italian banks to record levels. So far Italy's bailout requests have mostly fallen on deaf ears, as Germany's political leaders have resisted Renzi's recurring pleas for a taxpayer funded rescue. However, as we have alleged, and as the Italian Prime Minister admitted last week, the core risk for Europe is not just the Italian banking sector but the biggest bank of all in Europe: Deutsche Bank.
