Disgraced Dutch Foreign Minister Resigns After Admitting Lying About Putin's "Greater Russia" Comment

The Netherlands' foreign minister was facing a tough debate in Parliament Tuesday following his admission that he lied about attending a meeting hosted by Russian President Vladimir Putin at his country retreat more than a decade ago.

But, Minister Zijlstra just confirmed he is stepping down at the beginning of the debate in the House of Representatives.

He called it "by far the biggest mistake of my political life, the Netherlands deserves a foreign minister who is beyond any doubt."

As FD.nl reports, on Monday, the coalition seemed to want to support Zijlstra. But that became difficult when the Volkskrant reported that Zijlstra not only lied about the source of Putin's message - not he, but then Shell CEO Jeroen van der Veer was present at the meeting - but that Zijlstra also misunderstood the content of the message interpreted.

Hungary PM Viktor Orban Vows To “Fight Those Who Want To Change The Christian Identity Of Europe”

Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban has been somewhat of a lone voice in Europe against the Muslim invasion, and on Wednesday he gave a “Hungary First” speech in which he declared that he would “fight those who want to change the Christian Identity of Europe.”

“Our presidency has taken a stand: we cannot give in to extortion,” Orban said in a video statement on Facebook. “For us, Hungary is first. We will fight those who want to change the Christian identity of Hungary and Europe.”

Billionaire Soros Vows to Spend Additional $138,300 on Anti-Brexit Campaign

Hungarian-US billionaire George Soros and his Open Society Foundations (OSF) are set to pledge a new donation of 100,000 pounds, or roughly $138,300, to the campaign to stop Brexit, according to media reports.

The latest pledge comes on top of 400,000 pounds that Soros had earlier decided to contribute to Best for Britain campaign, the Telegraph newspaper reported on Sunday.

The spokesperson of UK Prime Minister Theresa May said Thursday, in a comment on Soros' donation, that London's position on the withdrawal from the European Union would not change and there would be no second referendum.

Lawmakers vote to outlaw references to 'Polish death camps'

Poland's lower house approves bill prescribing up to three years in prison for using phrases such as 'Polish death camp' to describe Nazi killing sites in occupied Poland; critics say would be impossible to enforce the law outside Poland.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel wants to blame Poland for the holocaust to extort money from them. But Poland lost 20% of its population to the Nazis and as the below video indicates, there were as many Poles at Auschwitz as Jews.

REVEALED: Furious German city facing EU-funding EXCLUSION because of Brexit BLACK HOLE

German officials believe Brussels will have their sights on the North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) city of Wuppertal, which has received considerable cash from the bloc in recent years, as the EU attempts to salvage the money lost from the UK.

The European Commission is understood to be considering cancelling the Structural Funds for Germany and other relatively wealthy member states in a bid to save billions of euros.

Reports suggest the EU could save £886million (€100billion) over the next seven-year financial period from 2021 to 2028 if ended subsidies to countries with a per capita income above the EU average – which would also affect France, the Netherlands and Sweden.

According to expert calculations, a 15 percent reduction in structural funding would mean Germany would be excluded from all funding programmes.

Trump should relocate US military forces in Germany to Poland

She might be the hero of western international elites, but by abandoning promises to increase defense spending, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has betrayed the most important of all international alliances: NATO.

The betrayal came on Wednesday, when Merkel's Christian Democrats and the center-left Social Democrats agreed to a coalition deal which fails to recommit to the NATO defense spending target of 2 percent of GDP. Instead, the deal says only that Germany will make "an appropriate contribution" to NATO.

Considering that Germany spends just 1.2-1.3 percent of GDP on defense, and before this week had pledged to reach 2 percent only by 2024, the latest abandonment takes things from the ludicrous to the insane.

Professor Stephen F. Cohen: Rethinking Putin – A Critical Reading

Professor Cohen is right: the real Putin has absolutely nothing, nothing at all, in common with the pseudo-Putin the Western media presents to its infinitely gullible and zombified audience.

I do believe that Professor Cohen will eventually go down in history as the most intellectually honest and courageous Russia expert in the US. In the meanwhile, the West is still stuck in its old, ideological ways: imperialism, nationalism and messianic exclusivism on one hand, and a complete surrender to post-modernism, cultural self-hatred, petty minority politics and moral relativism on the other.

Greeks Are Revolting Again

There were not five or ten thousand in Salonica, they were probably around five hundred thousand, nobody knows exactly. It was not a simple demonstration, it was a revolt, even if peaceful, for the time being. And today, everybody waits a much larger crowd in and around the Constitution Square in the center of Athens, named after the 1843 Revolution which obliged the first King of the Country, the Bavarian Otto, imposed on Greece by the Holy Alliance, to accept constitutional rule.

Munich Report: EU, NATO Face Growing Risk of Inadvertent Russia War

The annual Munich Security Report, this year entitled “To the Brink – and Back?” warns that the European Union and NATO are facing a massively increased risk of an inadvertent war with Russia.

The report, due to be published later this week, cites mounting security concerns in Eastern Europe, fueled by weakening of nuclear treaties, mounting tensions, and mutual military buildups along the frontier.

Each of these increases the possibility of a miscalculation or other misunderstanding that would lead to a military conflict, which could quickly escalate out of control into a massive nuclear war.

This report echoes what many other reports have already warned about, that NATO-Russia relations are at their worst since the height of the Cold War, and that there aren’t enough safeguards to prevent a disastrous conflict.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What this looks like to me is more propaganda in an attempt to "sell" a NATO war against Russia, using some kind of a false flag to kick it off.

And if NATO is truly looking for some kind of repair in the relationship, and a ratcheting down of tensions, why are they not having some kind of delegation immediately negotiating with their counterparts in the Kremlin to prevent an horrific "accidental war" from happening?!?

Of course, THAT... would be logical.

The fact that no one in NATO's high command seems to want to negotiate with the Russians, to fix these problems, does not augur well for peace.

EU Threatens Force Against Countries Refusing Migrants

European globalists are preparing to "force" Central European nations to accept mandated migrant quotas and open borders, according to Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orban.

Following a meeting with fellow Fidesz party officials, PM Orban posted a short video on Facebook summarizing the threat leveled by Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel at Hungary and allied governments, vowing to stand firm in defense of European civilization and Christian identity.

"The presidency of Fidesz has discussed yesterday the announcement of the Belgian prime minister, that they will - if necessary with force - obligate Central European countries, including Hungary, to accept migrants," Orban said. "According to their plan, this will happen in June at the summit of the prime ministers in Brussels."

"Our presidency has taken a stand: we cannot give in to extortion. We will fight those who want to change the Christian identity of Hungary and Europe."

Webmaster's Commentary:

‘He is no friend of Britain’s’: Tory MP tells George Soros - the billionaire investor who 'broke the Bank of England' – to ‘butt out’ of UK affairs after it emerged he gave £400,000 to campaign to thwart Brexit

Billionaire George Soros was today told to 'butt out' of UK affairs after it was revealed he had pumped £400,000 into a campaign fighting to stop Brexit.

The US investment mogul is one of the biggest donors behind the Best For Britain group launched by Gina Miller.

The revelation sparked fury among Brexiteers who said 'serious questions' must be asked into why a foreign national can bankroll a UK political campaign.

And they said Mr Soros - who is known as the 'man who broke the Bank of England' after he bet against the pound on black Wednesday -is 'no friend of Britain's'.

Record Support for Conservative, Pro-Sovereignty Governments in Hungary, Poland

Recent polls show that the conservative, anti-mass migration governing parties of Hungary and Poland are receiving record support as EU unity on immigration continues to crumble.

Nearly three-quarters of Polish voters, 73 per cent, believe President Andrzej Duda is performing well, according to a study by pollster CBOS.

In a separate survey conducted by IBRiS, Poland’s ruling Law and Justice Party (PiS) would pick up 47 per cent of the vote if parliamentary elections were held this week – way ahead of its rival, Civic Platform (PO).

Danish Left Unveils ‘Ambitious Plan’ to Slash Third World Migration

Presenting an ambitious plan to slash migration from non-Western nations, Denmark’s Social Democrats said the country lacks the capacity to integrate further flows of third world migrants.

The largest party in Denmark, where it is part of the left-wing opposition, the Social Democrats on Monday unveiled a 44-page migration policy document pledging “to introduce a cap on the number of non-Western foreigners who can [enter]”.

“We want to reform our asylum system, among other things, by setting up reception centres outside Europe, and in the future it will not be possible for refugees to obtain asylum in Denmark outside quotas set by the United Nations,” said Social Democrats head Mette Frederiksen.

Under the proposals, immigrants would no longer be able to turn up “spontaneously” at Denmark’s border or migrant centres to file asylum claims, and would instead be sent to a Danish-run reception centre in North Africa while their case is examined.

Berlusconi Pledges to Deport 600,000 Illegal Immigrants From Italy: 'Social Bomb Ready to Explode'

Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said immigration is a "social bomb ready to explode" and pledged to deport 600,000 illegal immigrants after a Nigerian migrant brutally murdered an 18-year-old girl and triggered a retaliatory attack where six African migrants were shot and wounded.

Rather than repeat platitudes about how "our diversity is our greatest strength," Berlusconi called for a return to sanity.

Hungarian Prime Minister: UN Migration Compact ‘Looks Like It Was Copied from the Soros Plan’ for Mass Migration

Hungary’s Viktor Orbán has blasted the “dangerous” new United Nations Global Compact on Migration, saying it bears the fingerprints of billionaire open borders campaigner George Soros.

“Principles are being formulated which, for example, raise the possibility of lighter penalties for illegally crossing borders, or propose that every country in the world simplifies and accelerates administrative procedures – in other words that we reduce the screening of foreigners who want to enter into our countries – or that NGOs should participate in these procedures,” the conservative heavyweight explained in an interview with Kossuth Rádió.

“Well, Hungary has had some rather bad experiences with NGOs: the bogus civil society organisations dealing with migration all eat out of George Soros’s hand,” he added.

“By the way, what we know about the text today – as it hasn’t yet been officially released – looks as if it was copied from the Soros Plan: in spirit it’s exactly the same.”

The launch of the new movement called Renew had been kept under wraps in the UK, but word has got out in France where MPs from Macron's En Marche party have been offering advice and support.

Renew will officially be launched next week, according to France Info radio, but the movement already has its own website at www.renewBritain.org.

What is absolutely certain is that this latest move by the US is, again, a dream come true for Putin and his supporters, especially right before the elections.

African migrants injured in Italian drive-by attack days after Nigerian accused of murder

A lone gunman has targeted foreigners in a series of drive-by shootings in a central Italian city, wounding six people, before being arrested.

Italy's interior minister Marco Minniti said the gunman had been motivated "by racial hatred" and had "a background of right-wing extremism with clear references to fascism and Nazism".

The shootings came days after the murder in Macerata of 18-year-old Pamela Mastropietro, whose dismembered remains were found on Wednesday in two suitcases.

A judge on Saturday confirmed the arrest of the main suspect, identified as a 29-year-old Nigerian.

The man arrested for carrying out the shootings was identified as Luca Traini, a 28-year-old Italian with no previous record.

He had run for town council on the anti-migrant Northern League's list in a local election last year in Corridonia, the party confirmed, but its mayoral candidate lost the race.

Hungarian mass honoring Nazi ally canceled after Jewish protests

A Budapest church has called off a memorial mass it was planning to hold in honor of a former Hungarian leader and Nazi ally on Saturday - International Holocaust Remembrance Day - after protests from Hungarian Jews and the World Jewish Congress. Parliament's deputy speaker who is member of the ruling Fidesz party of Prime Minister Viktor Orban, had been due to speak at the event called in memory of interwar Governor Miklos Horthy. The planned ceremony for Horthy, an admiral who led Hungary for 24 years until 1944, and handed over hundreds of thousands of Jews to the Nazis, triggered strong objections from Jewish organizations. With the WJC declaring it a provocative measure honoring an "unabashed anti-semite", the Budapest church which had organized the Catholic ceremony, canceled the event on Thursday.

NATO warships looking for opportunity to break Crimea's defence

It should be noted that the Duncan destroyer and the Gaziantep frigate have reserve places for Mk.41 vertical take-off missile launchers. These are unified installations that can be used to launch Tomahawk cruise missiles.

It is also necessary to take into account the growing activity of US aerial reconnaissance. Several days ago, officials with the US Department of Defence accused a Russian pilot of a dangerous, as they believe, manoeuvre, when the pilot approached a reconnaissance aircraft of the US Air Force.

A Russian Su-27 approached EP-3 Aries reconnaissance aircraft of the US Air Force in neutral airspace over the Black Sea. The Russian fighter jet manoeuvred at close range in various positions, being "five feet" (1.5 m) from the right wing of the EP-3. Such manoeuvres are unsafe, officials with the 6th US Fleet said. The Pentagon was so impressed with the manoeuvre it has published five videos of the incident.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though NATO is playing piccador here, and is spoiling for a fight; so I strongly caution NATO to please be very careful what it wishes for, in its aggressive behaviour against the Russian military.

EU to veto Brexit if Theresa May fails to protect citizens’ rights, Brussels sources say

EU diplomats are threatening to veto any Brexit deal if Theresa May doesn’t backtrack on her “shameful” plans to deprive EU citizens of free movement rights during a transition period, it has been claimed.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday during a three-day trip to China, the prime minister left audiences baffled when she seemed to suddenly toughen her stance on EU migrants. May said she wanted to make it “clear” that EU citizens arriving after the UK effectively drops out of the EU – set for March 2019 – will be treated differently from those who are already settled.

Resisting the much-spread idea that nothing would change post-Brexit, May said: “What we’re doing now is doing the job that the British people asked the government to do, which is to deliver on Brexit.” She added: “In doing that they did not vote for nothing to change when we come out of the EU.”

Europe Cries “Never Again” As It Repeats History of Censorship And Euthanasia

Op-Ed by Brandon Turbeville

After Europe’s tragic experience during the second world war at the hands of Nazis, many Europeans have prided themselves as being the tip of the spear of “tolerance,” “anti-racism,” and “liberal” policies. Though the horrors of the Soviets and Communism are rarely mentioned, the horrors of Hitler are repeatedly bashed upon the heads of Europeans with the requisite collective guilt and trained need to atone for the crimes their grandparents and great grandparents were allegedly responsible for. Of course, the older generation was simply cannon fodder for the great powers of their time and it was the same power structures and elitists maintaining their positions today that were responsible for the horrors on all three sides but still the general public is viewed as responsible for the atrocities committed in their name, despite risking their lives for even speaking out in dissent at the time.
