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

The ferocious slap-down saw Marie Krarup, of the right-wing Danish People’s Party, dismiss Russia as the country’s main threat and instead pointed the finger at divisive Brussels.

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.”

‘We’re not a MIGRANT WAITING ROOM’ Austria blasts Merkel and demands 'deportation summit'

AUSTRIA is not Germany's "waiting room", the country's defence minister has said, in the latest attack on Angela Merkel's immigration policy.

Hans Peter Doskizil claims the beleaguered German chancellor's "welcoming" stance on refugees fleeing the Middle East is creating a new "attraction factor" for those hoping to relocate to Europe.

Asylum seekers leaving Sweden in record numbers

Sweden received a record 163,000 asylum applications last year, but after the country’s government subsequently tightened its policy in the area – including the introduction of photo ID border checks and temporary residence permits – the numbers applying dropped dramatically to around 19,270 in 2016.

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.

6.2 Earthquake Wrecks Central Italy, Kills At Least 120: “Town Doesn’t Exist Anymore”

Unfortunately, it was only a matter of time. Earthquake watchers have been observing the build up of pressure and worrying... and more events with larger magnitudes (7.1? 8.3? 9.0?) may be coming to an area near you!

The worst hit was the small town of Armatrice, with some 2,700 residents:

Here comes AUXIT: Austrian election hinges on Brussels - with Eurosceptics SURGING ahead

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.

After Brexit 'It's Hard to Find Anyone in Europe Who Supports' EU

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."

He is now calling on coalition partners of his right-wing OVP party to support the proposals when a bill comes before parliament.

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:

Russia Must Counter Threats of NATO Deployment in East Europe - Envoy

Russia must take all measures, including military, to counter threats linked to the deployment of NATO's extra-capabilities in Eastern Europe, Russia’s envoy to NATO Alexander Grushko said Thursday.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said members of the alliance agreed at the July 8 Warsaw Summit to strengthen the military bloc’s presence in Eastern Europe by next year.

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

Austria's "Anti-Immigration" Presidential Candidate Resurgent After 9 Refugees Accused Of Gang-Rape

Europe's establishment powers just can't catch a break: following an unprecedented attempt to reduce the average age of its aging workforce (in a ploy that appears to have had the explicit backing and funding of none other than George Soros) and boost the flailing economy by accepting over a million, mostly young, Syrian refugees in 2015, the plan backfired spectacularly when "irreconcilable cultural differences" emerged leading to mass rapes, assaults, a failure to assimilate and increasingly more frequent terrorist attacks conducted by the new migrants.

And, when it comes to Austria, the latest such attack could not have come at a worse time for the status quo. According to The Telegraph, nine Iraqi refugees have been arrested in Austria on charges of gang-raping a 28-year-old German woman in a case that could ignite debate of immigration and crime ahead of this Autumn’s presidential election re-run.

Europe lost the US-Russian war, two years ago already.

Yes, this was written two years ago today, in the wake of the Russian counter-sanctions. Some saw it, even then, and today, well, here we are.

War: you are either at war or you aren't. There is no pretending. For ignoring this simple fact, Europe is in the whirlwind, completely disoriented in search of benchmarks that it no longer has.

The war the US is waging against Russia is a war to the death. Europe, at once actor and at stake, does not want this outcome but, victim of its protective alliances and its historic, though now artificial status, is obliged and even ordered to take sides with its Great Protector. This war is not hers, but she has to do it. Then she makes believe, since both protagonists know the outcome can only be the total defeat of one or the other, reflected either in the full and complete submission of Russia or the US loss of any hegemony.

Will Hungary Be Next to Exit the EU?

Will Hungary be the next nation to exit the dysfunctional European Union? The question isn’t at all as far-fetched as it might seem. On October 2, voters in Hungary will participate in a nationwide referendum to vote whether they agree to the forced settlement of migrants in Hungary by the EU or not. It’s a major issue in Hungary, a land of proud and staunchly independent-minded people who have endured 150 years of Ottoman rule; wars with Habsburg Austria until the Austro-Hungarian Compromise of 1867 created a peaceful coexistence under the dual Monarchy of Austria–Hungary. After that, Hungarians were subject to the Soviet Union since 1945, initially under the dreaded Mátyás Rákosi, until it became the first Warsaw Pact communist country to declare a constitutional republic in October, 1989 and open its borders to Austria, setting in motion the domino fall of East Germany and then of the entire Warsaw Pact and, ultimately, the Soviet Union.
