NATO wants Europe’s civilian infrastructure ready for war

NATO needs civilian infrastructure in Europe to meet its growing military requirements, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said ahead of a meeting in Brussels. This will mean coordination with national governments and the private sector, he added.

Defense ministers from the 29 NATO states arrived in Brussels to begin discussions on a “revision” of the NATO Command Structure. What is envisioned is a new command to protect sea lines between North America and Europe, and another to “improve the movement of troops and equipment within Europe.”

US looks to push Russia out of EU's energy market while American tankers ship Russian LNG to Europe

Tankers run by US energy corporations are delivering liquefied natural gas (LNG) bought in Russia to the Antwerp Gas Terminal in Belgium, reports Belgian daily Le Soir, as part of an investigation based on the 'Paradise Papers' leak.

On Sunday, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), reportedly financed through George Soros funds, released over 13 million documents from the world’s leading offshore law companies. The documents revealed that four cargo ships owned by Navigator Holdings bought gas produced by Russian petrochemical company Sibur.

Trump: Year One – Justin Raimondo

Trump is neither monster nor savior, and that is surely evident on this first anniversary of the Trump victory

As the one year anniversary of Trump’s triumph approaches, the pathetic remnants of American liberalism still haven’t recognized its meaning, or reconciled themselves to their loss of State power. They dream of impeachment, or even an outright coup: their contempt for the Great American Middle – “the deplorables!” – defines their politics, which, by now, are almost entirely negative: anti-Trump, anti-Russia, anti-bourgeois.

Can Farage Save Brexit? Ex-UKIP Boss Demands Meeting With EU Negotiator Barnier

NATO Intensifies Its Preparations for War with Russia

In the document entitled “Progress report on the Alliance’s Enhanced Deterrence and Defence Disposition,” leading military figures call for a major boost to military capabilities in order to conduct a so-called “Major Joint Operation Plus.” The abstruse terminology in fact stands for a war involving the main military organisations of all NATO countries, i.e. hundreds of thousands of soldiers. Der Spiegel notes: “The period of the peace dividend is past, the command structures of the Cold War are returning.”

The secret report states that NATO must be able to “quickly strengthen one or more threatened allies, underpin peace and wartime deterrence, and support allies in the event of an attack.” The mobilisation of the necessary troops requires “robust military logistics and capabilities”. The lines of communication would have to extend from North America to the eastern and southern borders of the NATO Alliance.

(Sigh) If there was ANY time in its history that NATO, Europe, and the US government needed a Department of Peace, it is right the heck now!!

Desperate EU risks WRATH of Putin by pushing EAST in bid to grow after Brexit

The European Union wants to deepen ties with Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova - teasing the possibility of future membership in exchange for cooperation.

Despite only being "associate members" of the EU, the three states already benefit from visa-free travel with the bloc.

And the EU is now desperately urging the states, two of whom share borders with Russia, to prioritise Brussels over Moscow in exchange for full membership.

Brussels is also seeking closer ties with Azerbaijan and Belarus, who also border Russia, as well as Armenia.

Soros & The Myth Of European Democracy: A Shocking Revelation

George Soros, a Hungarian-American investor and the founder and owner of Open Society Foundations NGO, was able to meet with President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker with “no transparent agenda for their closed-door meeting”, and pointed out how EU proposals to redistribute quotas of migrants across the EU are eerily familiar to Soros’s own self-published plan for dealing with the crisis.

The billionaire financier believes that the European Union should receive millions of immigrants from the Middle East and Northern Africa, provide each one with an annual 15,000 EUR in aid, and resettle these migrants in member-states where they do not wish to go and are not necessarily welcome.

“what happened” and “why nobody seems to be aware of it”.

“Do you think his assessment is accurate?” was the subject line of an email I got from a good friend recently. The email referred to the article by Paul Craig Roberts “One Day Tomorrow Won’t Arrive” which claimed that “the US military is now second class compared to the Russian military“.

Tillerson’s Wobbly War Assurance – Finian Cunningham

Washington has spurned appeals from Russia and China for multi-party talks and a “double freeze” on all military actions by the US and North Korea.

Surely, Russia and China should draft a resolution at the UN Security Council demanding implementation of their diplomatic roadmap. If the US vetoes then it stands to be exposed as an aggressor.

A war with North Korea is completely unnecessary. It is a gratuitous calamity in the making.

Despite the rain, thousands of demonstrators waved Basque and Catalonian flags as Madrid judges have issued an European Arrest Warrant for the return of Catalonia's President Carles Puigdemont.

Members of the Catalonian leadership face up to 30 years in prison for their attempt to breakaway from Spain, which has seen several former government ministers arrested and taken to Madrid.

Footage was released on Friday showing Italian police seizing around 24 million opiate tablets.

The vast quantity of opiate tablets were discovered at the container port Gioia Tauro in the southern Calabria region.

The tablets reportedly belonged to ISIS and were going to be sold to help finance the terrorist organization.

Channel 4 News Presenter Tells Hungarian Minister: ‘Christianity is Not Really a Fundamental of Europe’

Krishnan Guru-Murthy, a presenter for publicly-owned broadcaster Channel 4, left the Hungarian prime minister’s spokesman “stunned” after asserting that Christianity is “not really a fundamental of Europe”.
The journalist began his interview with Dr Zoltán Kovács, Hungary’s Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy, in a decidedly hostile fashion, asking him “what it is about migration that he’s afraid of”.

“It’s an uncontrolled and apparently unstoppable form of migration,” the minister explained.

“It’s illegal migration, per se. We’ve seen altogether almost two million people arrive into Europe in less than two years, and that’s an alarming issue especially if it’s related to those areas and events which are surrounding Europe–”

This is a disservice not only to President Trump but also to the American people and the planet itself.

Dr. George Szamuely, a distinguished member of the Global Policy Institute of London Metropolitan University, is a British citizen and not a partisan of US politics. He has carefully investigated the so-called Russian dossier and reports that it was entirely the work of the Hillary Democrats.

This fact was known at the beginning both to former CIA director John Brennan and to former FBI director James Comey. Yet both went along with the DNC-invented story of Russian election hacking and Christopher Steele’s fake “dossier” on Trump’s imagined relations with Russians.

EU Backs Madrid’s Imposition Of Authoritarian Regime In Catalonia

The European Union is supporting Madrid’s imposition of Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution to impose a puppet government in Catalonia. Giving Madrid a blank check to turn back the clock to the authoritarian policies of the fascist regime led by Francisco Franco, which fell in 1978 amid mass struggles of the Spanish working class, the EU is shattering whatever pretenses remain that it is a force for democracy.

Catalan Premier Appeals To EU As Opposition Mounts To Madrid’s Crackdown

From Brussels, where he fled to escape prosecution by Spanish authorities, deposed Catalan regional premier Carles Puigdemont appealed yesterday for the European Union to intervene in the secession crisis. Last week, Madrid invoked Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution to impose an unelected regime in Catalonia in response to the October 1 Catalan independence referendum. Now Puigdemont is asking the EU to broker a deal between the Popular Party government in Madrid and the ousted Catalan authorities.

Companies have begun applying to Denmark's medicines regulator to grow cannabis plants ahead of the drug becoming legalised for medicinal purposes next year, it's reported.

Some 13 companies have already submitted applications for growing cannabis plants to the Laegemiddelstyrelsen, so that they can help treat Danes suffering from painful illnesses such as cancer and multiple sclerosis.

From January 2018, the drug becomes legalised as part of a four-year trial and patients in the country can obtain cannabis on prescription, the Copenhagen Post reports.

Vucic: Hoyt Yi told me "you have to respect this, if you do not - think about the consequences"

THE PRESIDENT of Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic, said tonight that the pressure on Serbia and him is great, as well as that all the great powers coming to Serbia are concerned about their interests and that they do not cooperate with the opposite side.

"Serbia sits on its chair, until it can, no one can guarantee it, but in the second instance when it can not be, we will have someone else in the Serbian government, but also in the position of the president of Serbia," Vucic said, adding that nobody he does not like, not on one side, except for the citizens of Serbia.

He said that the great powers will not change their position on the independence of Kosovo.

Speaking of a conversation with US official Brian Hoyt Yi, he said the conversation was difficult.

"They come with their interests, none of them came to fulfill any of the interests of Serbia, or what is a priority for Serbia's citizens," Vucic said.

Lavrov: The United States is pressuring Serbia to the extent that it did on Ukraine on the eve of the 2014 "Majdan".

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said today that the interference in Serbia's internal affairs is a continuation of the US pressure on Belgrade to make a choice between co-operation with Russia and the European Union.

"Recently, US Deputy Secretary of State Brian Hoyt Ji was in Serbia who said that Belgrade must make a choice - either the EU or Russia, as it is impossible to have friendly relations with both sides, and that America absolutely supports the European choice of Serbia. Is not this an interference in the internal affairs of one country? "Lavrov asked.

It is said that he recalled that similar statements came from the EU in 2004 when the first "Majdan" took place in Kiev.

"It was then that Ukraine was told that it had to make a choice - either with Russia or with Europe," Lavrov added.

Deposed Catalan President Puigdemont allegedly flees to Belgium

Spain’s Attorney General Jose Manuel Maza has told local media that Madrid plans to file charges against deposed Catalan President Carles Puigdemont and his deputies, in the aftermath of declaring Catalonia a sovereign republic. Many openly suspect that the deposed Catalan leadership will be charged with “rebellion”, which in Spain can carry a 30 year prison sentence. Additionally, it is thought that the Catalan leaders will also be charged with sedition and embezzlement by Madrid. Spanish media have also reported that Puigdemont has fled to Brussels in order to avoid prosecution. The Belgian Migration Minister Theo Francken had previously stated that it was “not unrealistic” that Puigdemont could receive asylum in Belgium, a country which itself is in danger of splitting between Flemish and French speaking Walloon regions.

Talks on breakaway Transnistria may restart in November

Participants in negotiations on a settlement of the conflict surrounding Moldova’s breakaway republic of Transnistria expect to restart meetings in the 5+2 format in November, says the press service of the Moldovan government after consultations of Prime Minister Pavel Filip with 5+2 representatives... tensions between Chisinau and Tiraspol are escalating. In this situation, Moscow has urged a new session in the 5+2 format as soon as possible. Tiraspol voiced an active support, and Chisinau also agreed, but the European security agency said the sides in the conflict must reach preliminary agreements on some thorny issues before such a meeting. The Transnistrian conflict erupted in March 1992 when initial clashes occurred between Moldovan police and Transnistrian militia near the city of Dubossary, followed by an outbreak of armed hostilities.

Europe Will Reap What Spain Has Sown

The Spanish government decided to reach back into its history and borrow from the playbook of longtime Spanish fascist dictator Francisco Franco in dealing with Catalonia’s decision to declare independence from the Spanish Kingdom as the Republic of Catalonia. The Catalan government’s decision to declare independence followed an October 1 referendum in the region that resulted in a “yes” for independence.

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, whose Popular Party is a direct political descendant of Franco’s fascist Falangist Party, wasted no time in invoking, for the first time, Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution, which allows the Spanish Kingdom to impose direct rule on regions not adhering to the whiplashing from Madrid. Catalonia is the first, but possible not the last victim, of Spain’s neo-fascism on display for the entire world.

Russia, SOCOM’s Thomas told members of the Senate Armed Services Committee earlier this year, is “particularly adept at leveraging unconventional approaches to advancing their interests and it is clear they are pursuing a wide range of audacious approaches to competition – SOF [special operations forces] often present a very natural unconventional response.”

REVEALED: Shock strategy Brussels will use to LURE member-states into EU army

A GERMAN MEP has outlined how the EU will push through its plans to build its own army - by encouraging member states to "save money" by handing over control of military affairs.

The European Union will persuade other member-states to join Jean-Claude Juncker's plan for a bloc-wide army by grounding it in "economic efficiency".

Jo Leinen, a German MEP, dropped the shock revelation yesterday, claiming the policy of national armies "cannot continue" for much longer.

It comes as Donald Tusk, the European Council President, plans to set up an EU army by the end of the year to fight back against “destabilisation around Europe”.

A GERMAN MEP has outlined how the EU will push through its plans to build its own army - by encouraging member states to "save money" by handing over con

Jo Leinen calls for more efficiency of Brussels' spending

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Could someone please explain to me how these members of the EU are defining "destabilization around Europe"?!?

Because to the intelligent, casual observer, Europe is suffering the self-inflicted wound of allowing unchecked immigration to flood European countries to the point where social services cannot cope.

These immigrants do not want to assimilate; they want to take the traditions of their own failed coutries, like sharia law, and impose them on Europe.

They have no job skills, and when they learn those skills, are given preferential job-seeking status above that granted to native born Europeans.

Rape, and genital mutilation, are common forms of treatment of women among these immigrants.

So I am at least more than a little perplexed as to precisely how the establishment of a European army is in any way, going to fix this, except, perhaps, for pressing these immigrants into such a military, so that Europe can conquer their countries of origin militarily, and then, economically.

Look at the countries mentioned in this article: Mali, Central African Republic, and Somalia,all just chock full of natural resources European companies would love to exploit, and over which citizens of these countries have the bad taste to be living; how economically rude!!
