Ron Paul Says A New European Superstate Is Hardly The Answer

If the UK actually succeeds in exiting the EU, what will be the fate of the remaining members? According to a report yesterday, the French and Germans are looking to create what would essentially be a single European “superstate” that would put an end to national sovereignty. Will this idea fly with the 27 remaining members? We take a look at the post-Brexit landscape in today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:

US Ambassador to Hungary: Overthrow Assad, Let in Refugees, and Fight Russia...or Else!

If anyone wants a short course on what's wrong with US diplomacy look no further than US Ambassador to Hungary Coleen Bell's speech Friday to the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Hungarian Parliament. In typical diplo-speak there was plenty of flowery language about shared values, fish swimming together in the same water (?), sappy poetics like "together, out of that winter, we would force the spring," and talk of together being "part of the world’s greatest military and political alliance."

But make no mistake: Inside Ambassador Bell's velvet glove is an iron fist, poised to strike should Washington's annoyingly independent-minded Fidesz-led government step out of line on the big issues. And by "big" issues it should be understood that the US means the issues it considers in the interests of its own foreign policy, not those in Hungary's interest.

Message to Hungary: do as we say or you will be sorry.

Brexit Aftermath – Here’s What Will Happen Next

By Brandon Smith

Now, I fully understand the excitement surrounding this event. For many people it was a complete surprise because they assumed that international financiers and the ever-pervasive global elites would do anything to stop it from happening. It feels like a kind of revolution; a pointy stick in the eye of the beast. While I applaud the people of the U.K. for their ongoing battle for sovereignty, I can assure you that the Brexit is NOT an obstacle to the plans of globalists...

US-NATO Prepares for War against Russia. Washington’s Objective: Create Divisions between Europe and Russia

NATO has increased its presence in Eastern Europe 13 times for the latest years. In order to stop Russia’s revival, the US unwinds military conflicts plots at every possible way.

Colonel General Leonid Ivashov, President of the International Centre of Geopolitical Analysis explained in an interview to KP, that ‘if data on Russia-NATO power balance at the Western direction is analyzed, as well as military activity build-up rate at our borders, scale of combat equipment deployment, if the grade of Russia’s demonization is estimated, one can say that preparation to a real war is taking place. As such acts are usually undertaken at the forefront of a war.’

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What we are talking about, in that last paragraph, is the creation of a "false flag operation", in which huge numbers are hurt, and much of the landscape where the attacks have happened has been been burnt to cinders, to blame on Russia as the "justification" for going to war against it.

I would very strongly caution those residents of "foggy bottom" who believe that this, under any circumstance would be a "good idea", that such a war would create complete, global devastation.

And I say this, because at this point in time, the US military doesn't have the weaponry, the money, the troop strength, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia; so, most likely, such a war will go nuclear.

Please, to our leadership in the White House, Congress, State Department, and Pentagon: be careful what you wish for; the outcome of such a war could be both catastrophic....and irreversible.

The Accusations Begin: David Cameron Blames Brexit On Merkel And EU "Immigration Failure"

The Brexit vote is history, and so is David Cameron's reign as Britain's prime minister whose gamble to allow an EU referendum backfired spectacularly. And today, in what Bloomberg earlier dubbed his "last summer" Cameron had the unpleasant task of telling his Eurocrat peers during what is hist last Brussels summit why he failed. Only he didn't and instead, as the FT writes, Cameron flipped the tables and told European leaders he lost the EU referendum because they failed to address public concerns over immigration, as tensions rose ahead of looming Brexit negotiations.

Now Juncker to force all remaining EU countries to adopt the euro after Brexit paves way for single monetary union 

The eight EU members who do not currently use the euro may be forced to adopt it in a bid to speed up monetary union in the wake of Brexit.

The Daily Express reports that Denmark, Sweden, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Romania will be given an ultimatum by the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker .

The German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung claimed there were plans afoot to accelerate the 'completion' of the monetary union.
Brexit campaigners claim the plans show that the Leave vote in last week's referendum proved a 'great escape' for Britain.

Earlier this week Czech foreign minister Lubomir Zaoralek said the EU’s chief bureaucrat was a ‘negative symbol’ of the kind of federalism British voters rejected in the referendum and called for him to resign in the wake of Brexit.
But Juncker is resisting pressure to go and is instead planning to speed up European integration.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I seriously doubt that Juncker is going to be able to hold this together, in light of the fact that a number of other European countries are looking for their own moment to exit the EU.

Few people expected the positive outcome of Brexit referendum. Among other doubters, I expected the UK government will borrow a trick from the Clinton collection, and proclaim the Bremain hath it.

Brexit vote is 'final nail in the coffin' for £18billion Hinkley Point nuclear power station plans, says energy expert

Dr Paul Dorfman, an Honorary Senior Research Fellow at the Energy Institute, University College London, said EDF, a majority French-owned company, is 'extremely unlikely' to invest given the current economic climate.

The long-delayed project was due to have Hinkley Point power station producing 7 per cent of the UK's electricity by 2017. But, if built, the earliest date it could now start doing so is 2025.

Even that looks a remote possibility according to Dr Dorfman, who told MailOnline Brexit was 'the final nail in the coffin' for Hinkley Point.

He said: 'It gives everybody the chance to slip out without losing any more face.

'How is France going to invest in the UK if the UK is no longer part of the union?

'Not only that but the French nuclear industry has huge financial problems and unions are screaming that they don't want it [Hinkley Point].'

Norway is not in the EU, and yet it is one of America's closest allies, the U.S. president told NPR as part of a long interview, a section of which was released today.

'I think that the best way to think about this is, a pause button has been pressed on the project of full European integration,' he said.

After ‘Brexit,’ Can We Exit A Few Things Too?

Last week’s UK vote to leave the EU may have come as a shock to many, but the sentiment that led British voters to reject rule from Brussels is nothing unique. In fact it is growing sentiment worldwide. Frustration with politics as usual, with political parties that really do not differ in philosophy, with an economy that serves the one percent at the expense of the rest of society is a growing phenomenon throughout Europe and in the United States as well.

We're NOT talking of Scotland NOW: Donald Tusk SNUBS Sturgeon over EU meeting demand

The First Minister insists she has no intention of following Westminster’s lead as Britain breaks from the bloc, stating she wants her country to remain in the Union.

But after revealing she would travel to Brussels tomorrow to discuss the options for her country, Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, said the meeting will not take place.

Sturgeon was set to meet European Parliament President Martin Schulz to press for continued inclusion with the EU for her country, which largely voted to remain during the June 23 referendum.

Tusk, however, said now is not the right time to discuss what Scotland wants, just days after Britain voted for a Brexit.

Eurozone rocked by Brexit: Now George Soros bets €100m on German bank collapse

BILLIONAIRE investor George Soros took out a staggering €100MILLION bet that a major German bank would collapse after Britain decisions to cut ties with the crumbling EU.

The man who "broke the Bank of England" took a short position of 0.51 per cent in Deutsche Bank shares on Friday - the day after the people of Britain backed Brexit.

In growing signs that desperate Angela Merkel's economy is struggling in the wake of the nation's decision to leave the EU - Soros Fund Management said its short position was now 0.46 per cent - suggesting it had begun to take profits from the trade.

Since the momentous decision, shares at Deutsche have dramatically slumped.

Far right figures in Alternative for Germany have promised to call their own vote if they clutch power in country's general election in autumn next year.

EU BACKLASH: Brexit ‘TSUNAMI’ expected as 34 referendums set to rock union

THE EUROPEAN Union (EU) is about to be rocked by a “political tsunami” with right-wing parties across the continent calling for dozens of in-out referendums.

A study by the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR) revealed so-called extreme “insurgent parties” are calling for a total of 34 public votes - with matters ranging from their countries’ membership of the EU to refugee policy.

The ECFR report blamed Europe’s fear of Turkey joining the EU and the German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s “refugees welcome” policy as major reasons behind a rapid rise in support for both right-wing and far-left, anti-EU parties and their attempts to take back control of their countries.

EU Hints It May Stop Speaking English To Spite UK

It has now become abundantly clear that the bureaucrats at the EU are doing everything they can to punish the UK for voting to leave the EU.

Even before the referendum, German finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble threatened the UK and claimed it could never get single-market access to the EU. In other words, the UK would never be granted the sort of access that non-EU members Norway and Switzerland already have.

Following the election, EU Parliament President Martin Schulz raged at the UK declaring he wanted the UK out as soon as possible, claiming that the UK was holding the EU "hostage." Schulz, of course, is the same person who condemned the Poles for daring to elect someone that Schulz doesn't like. Soon after, Brussels launched a probe against the Poles, and other Europhile politicians called for sanctions against Poland for not electing the correct people.

Today the political elite continue to actively discuss the question of what will happen to Ukraine and how it will be affected by the outcome of the will of the British people.

Many are sounding that the EU will never take Ukraine in its composition, so as to solve their internal problems, in order not to disintegrate completely. And Ukrainians should not think about the visa-free regime in the near future. As it turns out, the sounds are not groundless.

Pinning the blame for The Brits' vote, the op-ed lambasts The EU's political failure, "The British do not leave the EU as narrow-minded snobs that had not meant it to happen that way, but as proud democrats that no longer wanted to put up with the snags and political failures of the EU;" and puts the blame squarely on the sagging shoulders of Angela Merkel (and her solo attempts at refugee policy)...

At long last the tyranny of the global financial elite has been slammed good and hard. You can count on them to attempt another central bank based shock and awe campaign to halt and reverse the current sell-off, but it won’t be credible, sustainable or maybe even possible.

The central bankers and their compatriots at the EU, IMF, White House/Treasury, OECD, G-7 and the rest of the Bubble Finance apparatus have well and truly over-played their hand. They have created a tissue of financial lies; an affront to the very laws of markets, sound money and capitalist prosperity.

Poroshenko Calls to Ignore the Outcome of the UK Referendum

Supporting the idea of a Brexit in the UK referendum became an information bomb for Petro Poroshenko, who came to power under the slogan of Ukraine joining the EU. London was seen as one the main lobbyists of Ukrainian interests in the EU. Another lobbyist, Poland, is not such a powerful foreign policy player as the UK. Another reason for the frustration is the blow struck to the attractiveness of the European Union. Until now, European countries have sought to enter the Union and not come back. Therefore, the decision of the British people expressed in the referendum is perhaps the strongest foreign policy defeat of the Poroshenko regime.

In short sales, investors agree to sell shares they don't own yet, in the belief they will be able to buy them later at a lower price. The difference in price is their profit - or loss, if the bet goes wrong.

Okay, so maybe the framing of the assertion wasn’t great – using colouring books as an example of how youngsters of voting age might be unfairly impacted by EU propaganda was a hit job waiting to happen. But the truth is that this situation has been going on for years, and it isn’t a stretch of the imagination to say that those turning 18 in the next year, before the European referendum, may well have encountered the infamous colouring books.

Well, they will only have been born in 1998. The days of Tony Blair, and well into the European project’s most recent expansionist growth spurt.

Why Erdogan apologized to Putin

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has apologized to Russian President Vladimir Putin over the shooting down of a Russian Su-24 bomber in the skies over Syria, the president's Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said. According to experts, Erdogan took such a step due to the deterioration in relations with the EU over refugees and the economic consequences of the breakdown in relations with Moscow.

Erdogan's letter to Putin, which the Kremlin announced on June 27, 2016, expresses regret over the Russian Su-24 bomber downed in Syria at the end of November 2015.

“After the Su-24 incident, Turkey tried in its foreign policy to find allies on this issue by playing on the contradictions between the European Union and Russia,” Alexei Arbatov, head of the International Security Center at the Institute of World Economy and International Relations at the Russian Academy of Sciences, said in an interview with RBTH.

According to him, the economic and political situation in the country has forced Ankara to change its position with the financial crisis and rupture of relations with Moscow having an extremely negative impact on the country's budget.

Will Britain Really Leave The EU?

The Brexit vote shows that a majority of the British voters understand that the UK government represents interests other than the interests of the British people. As difficult as the British know it is to hold their own government to account, they understand they have no prospect whatsoever of holding the EU government to account. During their time in the EU, the British have been reminded of historical times when the law was the word of the sovereign.

Washington fears Brexit will unravel its anti-Russia policy

Britain’s stunning referendum vote to leave the European Union has thrown a cat among the pigeons, not least in Washington, where it is feared that the “Brexit” could scupper its anti-Russian policy.

That tacit policy is a foundation of the postwar international order whereby Washington – thanks to its trusty British acolyte – has been able to exert hegemony over Europe. Nearly seven decades of American transatlantic domination are at risk of crumbling.

The unscheduled, hasty visit by US Secretary of State John Kerry to Brussels followed by London on Monday is a sure sign that Washington is alarmed at the historic decision by the British electorate to quit the EU – after 43-year membership of the bloc.

“Kerry urges Britain, EU to manage their divorce responsibly,” was how American news outlet ABC reported the diplomat’s detour. The outlet went on to say with a pretense of chivalry that Kerry’s concern was “for the sake of global markets and citizens”.

Ron Paul: The People Will Not Suffer From Brexit, Only the Global Banking Elite Will

George Soros exposed the dependence of the elite on the EU when he took to fearmongering about rampant financial collapse upon Brexit.

“The Brexit crash will make all of you poorer — be warned,” Soros penned in an op-ed for the Guardian on June 20. “My 60 years of experience tells me the pound will plummet, along with your living standards. The only winners will be the speculators […]

“A vote to leave could see the week end with a Black Friday, and serious consequences for ordinary people.”

However, as Ron Paul so aptly pointed out on Friday, the people’s suffering will be minimal. It is the banking elite who are running scared.

Parliament takes axe to 2nd EU referendum petition

A petition to nullify the UK’s EU referendum and hold another appear to be riddled with fraudulent data. Raw data examined reveals that many of the participants come from outside the UK, or use IP addresses outside the UK. Only UK or British citizens and residents can create or sign a petition, according to the rules. You can see the geographical breakdown here.

Some 39,411 signatories came from Vatican City, even though the city state has a permanent population of only 450. Over 23,000 voted from North Korea.

The House of Commons petitions committee is investigating the petition for fraud, and has already removed 77,000 “signatures” - but says the site was “not hacked”. The petition, ironically created weeks ago by a Leave campaigner, calls for the vote to be rerun if turnout was under 75 per cent, or the winning plurality was under 60 per cent.
