SLOVAK PRIME MINISTER RESIGNS AFTER MURDER OF JOURNALIST KUCIAK AND FIANCÉE

Slovak Prime Minister Robert Rico resigned Thursday after widespread outrage in reaction to the murder of a journalist who reported on potential links between organized crime and government officials.

“Today I have offered my resignation to the president of the republic,” Fico told reporters. “If the president accepts it, I am ready to resign tomorrow.”

The journalist, 27-year-old Jan Kuciak, and his fiancée, Martina Kušnírová, were found shot to death in Kuciak’s apartment on February 26.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For Rico to resign so abruptly, rather than cling on to power, may hint that he already knew of massive improprieties in the Slovakian government, and wanted to distance himself from it; but I have to reserve judgement here until all the facts are truly known.

Swedish Lady on Trial for Saying Migrants 'Drop IQ to Goldfish Level' - Report

Recently, several reports have indicated falling IQs in Scandinavia, leaving the public to ponder the implications of it. A far less scientific speculation by a Swedish lady who argued that continued immigration would result in a further drop of intelligence has, however, landed her in court.

A 65-year-old woman from the city of Jönköping has been charged with inciting hatred against a certain group of people for claiming that continued immigration will lead to lower IQ levels in the Nordic country, Swedish Radio reported.

"If it continues this way, the intelligence in Sweden will reach goldfish levels," the woman was quoted as writing in one of her posts in the Facebook group Stoppa maktmissbruket ("Stop the abuse of power").

Has Europe really recovered from its 2008 financial meltdown?

The mainstream media, and the economic pundits it favors, are rejoicing in the idea that Europe is “back in business,” following a fallow decade. A quick glance at Spain’s numbers suggests this hope may be forlorn.
With the exception of Germany, unemployment in major European Union countries has not returned to pre-crisis levels. Spain and Greece still have Depression levels of unemployment. France and Italy still have very high unemployment, with Italy having only recently fallen below the worst levels it experienced between 1990 and the introduction of the euro.

SPAIN CONFISCATES PROPERTY OF BASHAR AL-ASSAD’S UNCLE

The French customs service, in cooperation with its Spanish counterpart, confiscated the property of the current Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad’s uncle, which amounted to 600 million Euros. Quoting the French newspaper Le Figaro, the Russian news agency Tass reported that around 503 facilities worth 600 million Euros, owned by Rifaat Al-Assad and his relatives in the Spanish city of Marbella, were confiscated.

'EU uses left-wingers to sell its propaganda!' Italy's Salvini STUNS press conference

The leader of the Italian League party, who is in the run to form Italy’s new government after successful results in the Italian election, accused journalists interrupting him during a press conference of being “lefties” unhappy about the election results.

Mr Salvini was addressing the European Parliament in a press conference aimed at announcing his resignation as an MEP following his victory in the Italian Senate on March 4.

MEPs from the Europe of Freedom and Democracy party, of which Mr Salvini is a member, applauded the Italian politician as he began to address the EU Parliament.

Europe’s digital single market hits the Bulgarian rocks

When Mariya Gabriel became the EU’s digital czar last July, tech insiders gritted their teeth and hoped for the best.

Here was a young MEP from not-quite-wired Bulgaria, suddenly put in charge of Europe’s digital strategy. Her mandate was nothing less than completing the digital single market (DSM), a €415 billion plan to make the EU a global tech hub.

What could go wrong?

As it turned out, quite a lot. Nine months after Gabriel began, lobbyists and EU officials ticked off their reasons for being disappointed in her leadership: plans to lift audiovisual geo-blocking restrictions risk being heavily watered down; discussions on telecoms reforms are floundering, despite a recent spectrum compromise; and attempts to broker a copyright overhaul for the digital age are similarly stuck in the mud.

“It’s extremely difficult to change or shift [the DSM],” said Czech Liberal MEP Dita Charanzová of Gabriel’s work. “She doesn’t have political weight.”

15,000 Dutch Teachers Reportedly Go on Strike Over Working Conditions

About 15,000 primary school teachers from three Dutch provinces went on strike demanding higher wages and better working conditions, local media reported Wednesday.

According to the DutchNews media outlet, the strike took place in the Flevoland, North Holland and Utrecht as part of the nationwide campaign launched in 2017.

The teachers criticize the government for failing to meet the shortage of primary school teachers in the country despite the fact that it would toughen in future and call on Amsterdam to spend more money on employment of teachers.

The next strike under the campaign is expected to take place on April 13 in the provinces of Drenthe, Friesland and Groningen.

NATO won’t invoke Article 5 on collective defense over UK claims against Russia — source

NATO sees no reasons for using Article Five of the collective defense treaty after London’s charges against Moscow in connection with the poisoning of former GRU Colonel Sergey Skripal, a diplomatic source in the mission of one of NATO’s member countries in Brussels told TASS on Wednesday.

"Using Article Five would be a disproportionate response to such an incident. Getting support from all allies (NATO member-countries - TASS) would be impossible. With a high degree of probability one should expect the NATO Council will hold security consultations under Article Four of the Washington Treaty (on collective defense)," the source said.

Italy VOLCANO threat: Seismic swarm of earthquakes hit ancient volcanic area

In Pisciarelli-Agnano, at least one nursery school had been evacuated already by 2.30pm when the largest tremor was felt by pupils, parents and residents.

The Director of the Vesuvius Observatory, Dr Francesca Bianco, has made an effort to calm fears among local residents as the tremors cause disruption to schools and local businesses.

Dr Bianco clearly took the view that in her capacity as Director of the Vesuvius Observatory, it was right to issue a statement that sought to clarify the situation for those residents who might have been affected.

In her statement, Dr Bianco suggested that nobody should be frightened by the tremors they might have felt over recent hours and that this situation - with earthquakes and tremors affecting the region - has been going on for a number of years.

Italy's Right-Wing Leader Says 'EU Policies Robbed Us of Future & Hope'

The results of the general election in Italy, which has always been an ardent supporter of the European project, showed that Italian voters support the eurosceptic parties, as the country's center-right coalition achieved a historic result, only just falling short of gaining an outright majority.

"Last Sunday's vote shows that the emperor wears no clothes," Matteo Salvini, the head of the re-branded Italian party The League, stated. He was referring to the results of the vote, which reflected increasing eurosceptic attitudes toward the European Union amid mass migration from Africa and a struggling economy.

"European policies have robbed us of the right to a future and to hope," the politician added.

Row between Serbia & Kosovo slowing European clocks by 6 minutes

Millions of clocks across Europe are running more than six minutes late because of diplomatic tensions between Serbia and Kosovo. The situation is so bad it is literally impacting the European electrical grid.

Unlike normal wall clocks and watches, which keep time using quartz crystals, electric clocks use the frequency of the power grid to keep time. Europe’s huge interconnected network, which spans from Spain to Turkey and from Poland to The Netherlands, is run at a frequency of 50 Hz, or 50 cycles per second.

Supply and demand can cause the frequency to rise and fall fractionally, but it always averages out to 50 Hz. If you’re really interested you can actually watch the grid frequency live on Swissgrid’s website.

EU Extends Anti-Russian Sanctions Over Ukrainian Territorial Integrity Breach

The Council of the European Union announced on Monday it was extending sanctions "over actions undermining or threatening the territorial integrity" of Ukraine for six months.

"On 12 March 2018, the Council prolonged the restrictive measures over actions undermining or threatening the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine for a further six months, until 15 September 2018. The measures consist of asset freezes and travel restrictions. They continue to apply to 150 persons and 38 entities. An assessment of the situation did not justify a change in the sanctions regime," the statement read.

Other restrictive measures of the EU in response to the crisis in Ukraine include economic sanctions targeting some sectors of Russia's economy, as well as measures limited to the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol, which rejoined Russia in 2014.

Merkel: Europe Must Respond to Unilateral Actions by US on Trade

In the trade dispute between the US and Europe, German Chancellor Angela Merkel still sees hope for discussion and dialogue, she told reporters in Berlin at a joint briefing with the leaders of the parties that will make part of Germany's future government.

Merkel stressed that Europe must be ready to respond to the US unilateral actions such as imposition of trade tariffs, but the focus should remain on talks.

"If this unilateral action cannot be avoided, then we must think about how we can respond in a reciprocal fashion but I prioritize dialogue in the first place and there will be an opportunity for it," Merkel said.

Alleged EU Ultimatum for Non-Members: Take Your Refugees or Forget About Visas

Amid the migrant crisis and growing spending on refugees, Brussels is going to press transit or countries of origin to take back failed asylum seekers, threatening them with travel limitations for insufficient cooperation.

The European Commission is set to propose a new legislation for non-members to make them take back those refugees, who didn’t receive asylum, according to the German outlet Die Welt. The change in the existing visa codex, which is slated to be published on March 14, will deny visas to citizens of countries, which fail to cooperate.

This introduces two-step measures: first, visas will be denied to elites, including diplomats and service passport holders for three months. Then, if this period isn’t enough to fix the disagreements, the restrictions will hit all citizens as the number of consulate services will be reduced, e.g. with fewer working hours.

Kurdish Youth Group in Germany Vows to Turn Europe Into 'Rubble and Ash'

It seems that Germany may face the consequences of Turkey's ongoing military operation against the Kurdish YPG militia in Syria’s northwestern Afrin region.

Citing the Turkish military's Operation Olive Branch in Syria's Afrin, a Germany-based left-wing Kurdish youth group has threatened to turn European streets into "rubble and ash," according to Deutsche Welle.

The warning came after pro-Kurdish protesters clashed with police across Germany late last week, which prompted Ankara to urge Berlin to take measures to protect Turkish citizens living in Germany.

Hungary’s Gold Repatriation Adds To Growing Protest Against US Dollar Hegemony

A country’s sovereignty is becoming the driving force of so many changes in the geopolitical sphere, today. Whether it is Brexit, surprise electoral victories in central Europe or a change in trade deals, sovereignty is at the forefront of so many of these decisions.

One of the first indicators that there was a change in the water when it comes to globalisation and international cooperation was through central bank gold buying and repatriation.

For some time now many central banks have been working on building up their gold reserves and ensuring they are stored on soil it believes to be safe and trustworthy.

The most recent central bank to make this change is that of Hungary. Last week it was announced that it intends to bring 100,000 ounces of its very limited 5 tonnes gold reserves, back home from the Bank of England.

Plan for Scandinavian ‘Ice-Silk Road’ west moves ahead

n ambitious plan to build a railway between Rovaniemi in Finland and Kirkenes in Norway that would serve as an Arctic gateway for China’s Belt and Road project has beaten other competing proposals and has been selected by Finnish and Norwegian transport officials for further study. The link is designed to connect northern Europe with China and Russia’s Arctic Ocean deep-water ports.

Finland’s Ministry of Transport and Communications said on March 9 that the US$3.4 billion plan, drafted by a group of Finnish academics and business leaders, is the one that best addresses the country’s logistical, accessibility and supply-security issues. The proposal for a routing to the Arctic Ocean via Oulu, Rovaniemi and Kirkenes was also found to be less costly.

Senator suggests Israeli ambassador leave Poland after anti-semitism comments

A member of Poland’s ruling party has called on Israel’s ambassador to leave the country after alluding to a rise in anti-semitism. A new law criminalizing blaming Poland for Nazi crimes created tensions between the two states.

Prof. Jan Zaryn, senator for Law and Justice (PiS), was angered by suggestions that the actions of Poland’s ruling party were reminiscent of the widespread persecution of Jews carried out by the Communist Party in 1968. In an interview on Friday with wPolshe, Zaryn was clearly referring to the Israeli ambassador, Anna Azari, when he outlined, “if this is done by the ambassador of a foreign state, then maybe we have to ask this lady to leave this country.”

Germany's AfD Criticizes EU’s 'Export Hurdles', Supports Trump's Metal Tariffs

US President Donald Trump’s recent imposition of trade protectionist measures – specifically tariffs on steel and aluminum imports – have drawn widespread criticism, particularly from China and the European Union. Meanwhile, Germany’s Alternative for Deutschland (AfD) party has taken a more understanding and supportive stance.

Kay Gottschalk, a member of the German Bundestag, who also serves as the AfD party’s deputy spokesman, defended Trump’s import tariffs, while describing his strategy as "clever."

"The EU Commission is shouting loudly because Trump charges punitive tariffs. It raises itself as the grail-keeper of free world trade, defending indirectly the abominable consequences of globalization: pollution, wage dumping and tax avoidance of large corporations. Trump's clever strategy is obvious. He destroys existing contracts so that he can replace them with new and better ones," Mr. Gottschalk was quoted as saying by an official AfD press release.

British cops are unlikely to probe Keith Vaz’s property empire not least because of a rule protecting politicians from scrutiny placed in UK law at the behest of the European Union.

Fortunately for Vaz measures put into the Criminal Finances Act (2017) mean politicians in the EEA can only be served with such an order if there is sufficient suspicion that they are involved in serious organised criminality. The Act states that to impose an order the High Court must:

“Be satisfied that the respondent is a politically exposed person, or there are reasonable grounds for suspecting that—(i) the respondent is, or has been, involved in serious crime (whether in a part of the Uited Kingdom or elsewhere), or (ii) a person connected with the respondent is, or has been, so involved […]

With Friends Like These: EU Threatens to SUE the UK if Trump Exempts British Steel Industry from Tariffs

The European Commission has taken the extraordinary step of threatening to sue the United Kingdom if President Trump exempts Britain from U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminium.

The U.S. President has suggested that the tariffs — designed to protect the American aluminium and steelworkers from foreign dumping, as their industry is a strategic asset — will not be applied to all of America’s allies, with NAFTA members Canada and Mexico already being offered exemptions.

But the European Commission — the unelected body with acts as the EU’s executive as well as the sole initiator of EU-level legislation — has reacted with fury to British trade secretary Liam Fox suggesting that the United Kingdom will try to “maximise the UK’s case” for a similar exemption and threatened to sue the country if it does not suffer along with the rest of the bloc, the Telegraph reports.

That's what Samantha Power, one of the top diplomats in the Obama administration, did when she shared an article by Spain's El Pais newspaper about how Russia predetermined the outcome of Sunday's election by spinning an immigration discourse in Italy: "Italy’s joins long list of elections influenced by Russia. Sputnik will do what Sputnik does. The question is: what are our democracies going to do about it? Will voters repudiate candidates who seek to benefit from Russian interference?"

Billions Flown From Gaddafi 'Frozen Funds' in Belgium

Belgian authorities have discovered the disappearance of 10 billion euros of frozen Libyan assets kept in the Euroclear Bank during the period 2013 to 2017, according to the Le Vif weekly paper.

According to Le Vif magazine, these funds were controlled by the inner circle of ousted and killed Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi.

Over 16 billion euros were located in four accounts opened for the Libyan Investment Authority and Libyan Foreign Investment Company.

The Belgian authorities found the disappearance of a significant part of these funds in the fall of 2017, when an investigation into money laundering sought to seize the 16 billion euros. It turned out that on the four accounts just over 5 billion euros remained.

After the bombing of Yugoslavia, we should understand what will happen to the world and our country, Russian President Vladimir Putin said, reminding that in 1999 he was hit in the center of Europe without the approval of the UN Security Council.

Putin in the documentary "World Order 2018" spoke about the events after the unification of the two Germans, pointing out that Russia not only contributed to this, but also withdrew troops from Eastern Europe.

As he said, it did so in the expectation that after the termination of the Warsaw treaty, the cease-fire would cease to exist, or, at the very least, that this organization will not expand and that, as he said, tectonic changes in the system of international relations as a whole .

"As we see, it did not happen. It turned out that under the cover of this ideological confrontation, a geopolitical struggle is going, a struggle for geopolitical interests. Secondly, the old world order created after the Second World War and based on that power distribution has actually disappeared and everything had to be changed from scratch, "Putin said.
He estimated that from there came all nihilism to international law and the role of the UN.

Afghan Asylum Seeker Admits to Vienna Stabbings, Says He Did It Because He Was in a ‘Bad Mood’

The 23-year-old Afghan asylum seeker who was arrested in connection with the stabbings of four people Wednesday night in Vienna has confessed to the attacks, saying he stabbed them because he was “in a bad mood”.
The man was arrested Wednesday night after two separate stabbing attacks in Leopoldstadt, the second district of Vienna.

During his police interrogation, he said that the first attack was motivated by his “bad mood” over his life situation. The second attack was related to the Vienna drug scene and the Afghan blamed the fourth victim for his drug addiction.

This is a subsea cable system that will connect the Israeli electricity grid to Europe via Greece and Cyprus.

Microwaves across Europe are 6 minutes slow due to a Serbia-Kosovo grid dispute

In a press release on Tuesday, Europe's electric transmission lobby said that ovens, microwaves, and radios across continental Europe could be running almost six minutes slow due to a power grid dispute between Serbia and neighboring Kosovo.

Power-connected clocks on appliances generally tell time by counting the rate of the electrical current, which in Europe is supposed to hold a constant frequency of 50Hz. If that frequency drops below 50Hz, connected appliance clocks will be slow, and if it rises above 50Hz, clocks will be fast. Since mid-January, clocks that are on the Continental Europe Power System, a synchronized area that reaches through 25 countries across the continent, have seen a deviation from grid-time based on an average frequency of 49.996 Hz.

Netherlands to hold referendum on controversial law in March 2018

Four months after the controversial referendum law was passed, the Netherlands is all set to hold a non-binding referendum in March 2018 over the legislation giving law enforcement authorities ‘mass-surveillance’ powers, the Dutch Voting Commission said on November 1, 2017.

As per a report published in Reuters, digital privacy advocates, activists, politicians, and media groups want to overturn the data-slurping “tapping law” which was passed by the Dutch Senate in July, after years of debate and allowed intelligence agencies to gather data en masse from large groups of people.

While emphasizing that the public referendum was ‘purely consultative’, the Dutch Electoral Council said that if more than 30 percent of the electorate vote in the favor and a majority oppose the law, the government would re-examine the proposal.
