I’ve always believed that one should not speak ill of the dead – and especially someone so brutally murdered as was Jo Cox MP on Thursday. But when that dead person is being deified out of all proportion– rather as Princess Diana was after her death – by a mainstream media hand-in-glove with a prime minister who is desperate to create false hysteria in order to sway the most important decision of our generation – our vote in the EU referendum – then something has to be said, and it is this:

Undeterred: Amid Terror Attacks In Europe, US H-Bombs Still Deployed There

“A little more than 60 miles from Brussels airport,” Kleine Brogel Air Base is one of six European sites where the United States still stores active nuclear weapons, William Arkin wrote last month. The national security consultant for NBC News Investigates, Arkin warned that these bombs “evade public attention to the extent that a post-terror attack nuclear scare in Belgium can occur without the bombs even being mentioned.”

At the time of her death, Lindh was the main figure for the Yes vote in the Euro referendum, working the campaign trail almost fulltime, and smiling at voters from posters. She was more popular than her party. The campaign strategists understood that she upstaged Goran Persson as a vote-catcher in the tough struggle to convince her countrymen and women, who are almost as sceptical of the EU as the British.

“Great Danger”: US-NATO Missiles Threatening Russia. Putin: “We Know and they Know that we Know…People do not Understand how Dangerous the Situation Really Is”

The main problem, according to the Russian president, is that people do not understand how potentially dangerous the situation really is. “The world is being pulled into a completely new dimension, while [Washington] pretends that nothing’s happening,” Putin said, adding that he has been trying to reach out to his counterparts, but in vain.

“They say [the missile systems] are part of their defense capability, and are not offensive, that these systems are aimed at protecting them from aggression. It’s not true,” Putin told the journalists, adding that “strategic ballistic missile defense is part of an offensive strategic capability, [and] functions in conjunction with an aggressive missile strike system.”

The “great danger” is that the same launchers that are used for defense missiles can be used to fire Tomahawks that can be installed “in a matter of hours,” Putin noted. “How do we know what’s inside those launchers? All one needs to do is reprogram [the system], which is an absolutely inconspicuous task,” he said, adding that the governments of the nations on whose territories these NATO complexes are based would have no way of knowing if this had happened.

The Scariest "Brexit's Impact On The World" Report Yet

If Brexit wins on June 23, the low odds accorded by experts and financial markets to successful populist revolts in America and Europe will immediately look suspect, while the higher probabilities suggested by opinion polls will gain greater credibility. This is not because US voters will be influenced by Britain; of course they will not be. But, in addition to all the economic, demographic, and social similarities, opinion polling in the US and Britain now face very similar challenges and uncertainties, owing to the breakdown of traditional political allegiances and dominant two-party systems.

Putin Thinks West Supported Coup in Kiev to Justify Existence of NATO

Russian President Vladimir Putin thinks that the West supported the coup in Ukraine to justify the existence of NATO.

"After the ‘Arab Spring’ they have already moved closer to our borders. Why did they need to support the coup in Ukraine? There is a complicated internal political situation there, and the opposition that is in power today would have most likely come to power by democratic means, through elections, as well. That’s it, we would have worked with them just like we worked with the authorities before (former Ukrainian) President (Viktor) Yanukovych," Putin said on Friday at a plenary session at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

"No, they had to take it to the coup with victims, to cause bloodshed, civil war, to intimidate the Russian-speaking population in Ukraine’s south-east and in Crimea. What for?" he asked adding that Moscow "just had to take measures to protect certain groups of population," he continued.

Flashback: Britain’s bill for EU bail-out hits £22bn

BRITAIN’S bill for bailing out the crisis-hit euro yesterday soared to £22BILLION — or £900 for each family in the country.

The Treasury was accused of sneaking out the news after the UK quietly increased its contribution to the International Monetary Fund from£10.5billion to £19.7billion.

The £9.2billion rise is on top of £12.5billion the UK has already committed to propping up the euro.

Chancellor George Osborne has dished out £7billion to Ireland and £4.3billion for Portugal, while Britain is also liable for a £1.2billion share of the IMF’s Greece bail-out.

The IMF increase was detailed in a little-seen Government order, and Tory MPs accused Mr Osborne of slipping it out to avoid a row.

Business leaders blast £850m UK loan to Greece as they call for more to be done to protect national interest

Business leaders are calling for more to be done to protect the national interest after Britain was forced to contribute to a new rescue package for Greece.

The European Union handed Athens a £5billion bridging loan at the end of last week to keep the country afloat while its £60billion bailout is finalised.

The loan included £850million from the UK – flying in the face of an agreement the Government reached in 2010 to ensure British money would not be used to bailout eurozone countries.

Flashback - Europe tells Britain it MUST pay £1bn share for the Greek bailout: Osborne strongly opposes plan to use money from all EU members

Britain pays around 14 per cent of the EU budget , meaning that lending Greece 8.6billion euros would leave UK taxpayers exposed to a risk of around £850million.

How Brussels spends YOUR money as if it grows on trees: In a devastating dispatch, we reveal how Eurocrats live a life of staggering excess - 10,000 earn more than the PM's £150,000 - while taking decisions that affect all our lives in secret

During a week here in the gilded capital of Europe, I have been amazed by the gulf between this place and the real world.

Just take the wage bill of the 47,000 people who work inside the bubble. Since 2010, it has been British policy to disclose the number of government officials earning more than our Prime Minister, who gets paid just shy of £150,000. In Britain, the latest figure stands at 319.

And the equivalent number for the EU? According to documents leaked ahead of the last European elections two years ago, EU tax perks mean that at least 10,000 EU employees are taking home more than David Cameron.

Many are mere middle managers. Among the extra perks are the £240 monthly allowance for stay-at-home spouses and the £100-a-month allowance per child. On top of that, European taxpayers spend an estimated £80 million each year in school fees for Eurocrats' children.

I thought I'd seen it all but the Remain camp's campaign to make Jo Cox their own private martyr is beneath contempt

The Labour MP Maria Eagle, quick to tweet the killer shouted 'Britain First', was later forced to hit delete when she realised her crass political hopes for a motive may have been exactly that.

But Maria Eagle was just the first in a long line of Remain campaigners determined to own this tragedy for their advantage.

How many times do we need to hear Jo Cox believed in unity? Talking about her constituency in a clip replayed endlessly on the BBC she said, 'there is more that unites us than that which sets us apart'. Remain couldn't have hoped for a better sound bite.

Set against the backdrop of Farage and his decisive rhetoric and billboard of migrant refugees, unity has a whole new cachet.

MPs gathered publicly to cry together. Signalling their side of the Referendum debate.

And wherever Jo had been, Dave and the Remain Dream Team went too.

Dave on rack over Turkey: PM fails three times to say he will veto country's entry to EU

David Cameron refused three times to say he would veto Turkey's entry into the European Union last night as he faced public anger over his failure to curb immigration.

Appearing on a special Question Time, the Prime Minister repeatedly ducked the question, claiming there was no prospect of the country becoming a member in the near future.

He claimed the issue was 'the biggest red herring in this referendum debate' and that voting to leave for fear of Turkish entry would be a 'crazy thing to do'. But given three clear opportunities to say he would use his veto to stop it, he declined to do so.

New EU tax raid on Britain: Staying in could cost each household another £2,600

Brussels has shown no signs of relenting in its long opposition to the UK charging zero and cut-rate VAT, campaigners say. Food, children’s clothes, books, domestic fuel, newspapers and even funerals will all be targeted.

As David Cameron faced a mauling in a live TV debate last night, the issue emerged as just one of a damaging string of policies Brussels is plotting to clobber Britain with once Thursday’s referendum is over, if we vote to stay in.

According to HM Revenue and Customs, the Treasury would have received an extra £71.3billion in 2015-16 if rates were increased. That is the equivalent of an extra £2,649 per household.

5 Things That Won’t Happen If Britain Leaves the EU

The EU referendum debacle has, regrettably, boiled down to a choice between David Cameron’s business-oriented ‘Project Fear’ and Ukip’s anti-migrant sentiment. For left-wing progressives, a Remain vote in support of an institution which prioritizes profits over people flies in the face of socialist ideology. The alternative – Brexit, with its overtones of jumped-up xenophobia – is equally unappetizing. But what will actually happen if the UK leaves the EU? Is it really all doom and gloom? 1. The EU won’t implode.

“How I see it is that we have got four days left to save Europe. Unless we vote for change it will go on and on in a totally undemocratic way.”

He added: “This is our moment when the British people take centre stage in history, this is when the eyes of Europe are on us and I think hundreds of millions of people are praying that we will do the right thing and vote for change because they are locked in a system that is incapable of change."

“Britain has always been there for Europe. You made huge sacrifices to save us from Nazi dictatorship.

“The British have a very strong sense of freedom and Brussels has messed with that. That’s the biggest lesson that will come out of a Brexit.”

Mr Lundgren said Brussels was beginning to realise it had misjudged Britain. “They laughed when Ukip and Conservative Eurosceptics began to demand a referendum for Britain,” he said. “They’ve stopped laughing now.

First Brexit Poll Since Jo Cox Killing Shows Remain in Lead

The campaign to keep the U.K. in the European Union led in the first opinion poll fully conducted since Thursday’s slaying of politician Jo Cox.

The poll marked a reversal of positions from Survation’s previous survey which was released just before pro-EU Labour Party lawmaker Cox was murdered as she met constituents in her electoral district in northern England.

Tensions Between US/NATO & Russia Are Flaring Dangerously

The bottom line is this: If you're not already mentally and physically prepared for the prospect of a NATO/US war with Russia, you really should be.

Perhaps the chances of outright war are still low on a relative scale, but the costs would be catastrophically high -- making this worthy of your attention. A low risk of a catastrophic outcome is the very reason we all buy insurance – life, auto, and home. Not because we wish things to go wrong in our lives, but because they sometimes do nonetheless.

A Russian Warning

The list of aggressive provocations by NATO that have been received as belligerent acts by Russia is quite long. It stretches back several years and continues to grow rapidly, making the chance for an ‘accident’ or unplanned incident quite high.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the US and NATO are lacking, so far, is some sort of action or incident by Russia which can be used as an excuse to declare war; so most likely, the US and NATO will have to create some kind of false flag with which to sell their respective citizens on the need for war against Russia.

But I would strongly caution both NATO and the US government; after 9/11, and understanding how and why that was used as the premise for the US government to go to war against Afghanistan and Iraq, you have a very cynical, logical public, which refuses to get manipulated into another war on a pack of lies.

And should war be declared against Russia, you can bet that there will be a very vocal,(and hopefully, peaceful) and robust protest against it; and yes, the President can suspend the Constitution and declare martial law, but it will cause world leadership to see the US government for what it is; a collection of corporately-owned warmongers, pledged to keep the 1% which profits from death and destruction, blissfully profitable, at the expense of its own citizens and the world.

And the other caution I would share with those in Foggy Bottom and beyond is the following; right now, in its current state, the US military doesn't have the money; the weaponry; the manufacturing; or the troop strength to ensure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia.

The US's weapons procurement process can only best be characterised as incestuous, and that is because the politicians who hand out the contracts have their campaigns fully supported, overtly and covertly, by the arms manufacturers who want those contracts. So the outcome here is weaponry which is defective (think the F-35), way late to the point of being obsolete when it is finally deployed, and profoundly over budget.

In consideration of all this, I would strongly urge members of Congress, the White House, the State Department, and the Pentagon, to be very, very careful about what you decide to do as your next move against Russia; the results of a war against Russia could well be both catastrophic, and irreversible, for the entire human race.

We're told the EU makes us all stronger. But this haunting dispatch from a despairing, destitute Greece may make you change your mind

Here in Athens’s Syntagma Square, just after breakfast time one weekday morning, pensioner Dimitris Christoulas put a handgun to his head and pulled the trigger.

The retired pharmacist had walked out of his flat in a middle-class suburb for the last time. He locked the heavy shutters behind him, and the door where he had hung a sign saying: ‘Can’t Pay, Won’t Pay’.

In his jacket he carried a note saying his pension had been cut to ribbons and he couldn’t face a future of ‘raiding rubbish bins for food’.

His only child, Emi, had met her 77-year-old father for coffee the previous evening, though he gave no hint that he was planning to kill himself.

‘Things have got worse for us Greeks since my father died four years ago,’ she says today.

The head of the Ford Foundation, ex-OSS officer Paul Hoffman, doubled as head of ACUE [below, we’ll explain who these players are] in the late Fifties. The State Department also played a role. A memo from the European section, dated June 11, 1965, advises the vice-president of the European Economic Community, Robert Marjolin, to pursue monetary union by stealth.

It recommends suppressing debate until the point at which “adoption of such proposals would become virtually inescapable”.

In other words, the U.S. State Department recommended ramming through the creation of the EU before Europeans knew what was happening.

The European Union always was a CIA project, as Brexiteers discover

Brexiteers should have been prepared for the shattering intervention of the US. The European Union always was an American project.

It was Washington that drove European integration in the late 1940s, and funded it covertly under the Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon administrations.

First Brexit Poll After Jo Cox Death Reveals Stunning Result

British support for remaining in the European Union has weakened in the wake of the murder of the pro-EU politician Jo Cox, according to an online research company Friday.

Qriously, a London-based technology start-up that gathers data and intelligence about consumers through mobile phone apps, found that backing among likely voters for Britain's EU membership has dropped to 32% from 40% before her death.

The poll was based on 1,992 British adults surveyed on June 13-16, and then 1,002 on June 17 — the day after Cox was shot and killed in northern England.

Ex-Brussels chief pushes for EU Army and tells leaders to work FASTER to create one

Former Nato secretary general Javier Solana, who was the EU's foreign policy chief, said the organisation's 28 members need to join forces on defence and security matters to form a united force against jihadism and radicalisation.

Speaking during a presentation of an EU study titled 'On the way towards a European Defence Union: White Book as a first step', the retired diplomat said: "As Europeans we must move towards greater integration in defence and security, so that our responses are effective."

His comments will be seized on by eurosceptics as another move towards the creation of an EU army.

EU extends Russia sanctions over Crimea for 1 more year

The European Union extended Friday for one year its economic sanctions against Russia.

The EU said in a statement that its restrictive measures imposed over what it called Moscow’s illegal annexation of Crimea has been extended until June 23, 2017.

The sanctions, which have been in place for the past two years, prohibit certain exports and imports, and ban investment and tourism services by EU-based companies to Crimea. Moscow defends Crimea’s rejoining Russia as legitimate, saying more than 90 percent of the people in the Black Sea peninsula voted in favor of rejoining in the referendum of 2014.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) why are the members of the EU, who have extended these sanctions, lying through their collective teeth, in order to pursue these sanctions?!?

Russia, for the gazillianth time, did not annex Crimean.

When Victor Yanukovych got dumped under the proverbial bus, courtesy of the putsch which put Poroshenko into power, the Crimeans knew that they had no legitimate representation in Kiev.

They then held a national referendum, which was characterised by observers as "free and fair" where the Crimean people voted to petition the Russian government to become a part of the Russian Federation. Russia accepted their referendum, and that was how they came back to being a part of Russia.

But EU members are starting to get annoyed at with whom they can, and cannot do business. There has been talk about various countries wanting to start re-establishing trade with Russia, which now the EU says they cannot do, with certain items, for at least one year.

This is why, most probably, we will see the breakup of the EU come with the Brexit, Grexit, and Frexit; the economic hurdles it throws up so speciously and flagrantly, are coming home to roost, and member nations are tired of it.

Was Britain Taken Into The EU Illegally?

Many constitutional experts believe that Britain isn't actually a member of the European Union since our apparent entry was in violation of British law and was, therefore invalid.

In enacting the European Communities Bill through an ordinary vote in the House of Commons, Ted Heath's Government breached the constitutional convention which requires a prior consultation of the people (either by a general election or a referendum) on any measure involving constitutional change. The general election or referendum must take place before any related parliamentary debate.

European Peripheral Bond Risk Explodes: Forget Brexit, "Now It's Italy's Turn"

If there was any doubt that Brexit was "relevant" then the surges in European peripheral bond risk, despite massive bond-buying by The ECB, should send shivers up and down the status quo huggers that are shrugging the referendum decision off because "central banks will provide liquidity." However, it's not just The UK that EU officials need to worry about, as The Globalist notes, Germany will have to change its policies if it wants to avoid exit of other countries from the eurozone.
