The European Union always was a CIA project, as Brexiteers discover

Brexiteers should have been prepared for the shattering intervention of the US. The European Union always was an American project.

It was Washington that drove European integration in the late 1940s, and funded it covertly under the Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon administrations.

First Brexit Poll After Jo Cox Death Reveals Stunning Result

British support for remaining in the European Union has weakened in the wake of the murder of the pro-EU politician Jo Cox, according to an online research company Friday.

Qriously, a London-based technology start-up that gathers data and intelligence about consumers through mobile phone apps, found that backing among likely voters for Britain's EU membership has dropped to 32% from 40% before her death.

The poll was based on 1,992 British adults surveyed on June 13-16, and then 1,002 on June 17 — the day after Cox was shot and killed in northern England.

Labour MPs urge Britons to vote for Brexit next week to topple Cameron and Osborne

A new advertising campaign, launched with just seven days until the UK’s historic in/out vote on EU membership, instructs voters to ‘Wipe the smile off their faces’ above a photo of the grinning Prime Minister and Chancellor.

Ex-Brussels chief pushes for EU Army and tells leaders to work FASTER to create one

Former Nato secretary general Javier Solana, who was the EU's foreign policy chief, said the organisation's 28 members need to join forces on defence and security matters to form a united force against jihadism and radicalisation.

Speaking during a presentation of an EU study titled 'On the way towards a European Defence Union: White Book as a first step', the retired diplomat said: "As Europeans we must move towards greater integration in defence and security, so that our responses are effective."

His comments will be seized on by eurosceptics as another move towards the creation of an EU army.

EU extends Russia sanctions over Crimea for 1 more year

The European Union extended Friday for one year its economic sanctions against Russia.

The EU said in a statement that its restrictive measures imposed over what it called Moscow’s illegal annexation of Crimea has been extended until June 23, 2017.

The sanctions, which have been in place for the past two years, prohibit certain exports and imports, and ban investment and tourism services by EU-based companies to Crimea. Moscow defends Crimea’s rejoining Russia as legitimate, saying more than 90 percent of the people in the Black Sea peninsula voted in favor of rejoining in the referendum of 2014.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) why are the members of the EU, who have extended these sanctions, lying through their collective teeth, in order to pursue these sanctions?!?

Russia, for the gazillianth time, did not annex Crimean.

When Victor Yanukovych got dumped under the proverbial bus, courtesy of the putsch which put Poroshenko into power, the Crimeans knew that they had no legitimate representation in Kiev.

They then held a national referendum, which was characterised by observers as "free and fair" where the Crimean people voted to petition the Russian government to become a part of the Russian Federation. Russia accepted their referendum, and that was how they came back to being a part of Russia.

But EU members are starting to get annoyed at with whom they can, and cannot do business. There has been talk about various countries wanting to start re-establishing trade with Russia, which now the EU says they cannot do, with certain items, for at least one year.

This is why, most probably, we will see the breakup of the EU come with the Brexit, Grexit, and Frexit; the economic hurdles it throws up so speciously and flagrantly, are coming home to roost, and member nations are tired of it.

Was Britain Taken Into The EU Illegally?

Many constitutional experts believe that Britain isn't actually a member of the European Union since our apparent entry was in violation of British law and was, therefore invalid.

In enacting the European Communities Bill through an ordinary vote in the House of Commons, Ted Heath's Government breached the constitutional convention which requires a prior consultation of the people (either by a general election or a referendum) on any measure involving constitutional change. The general election or referendum must take place before any related parliamentary debate.

France once again under Nazi occupation

France is once again under a Nazi occupation. The evidence is clear that France is controlled by Germany. Nicolas Sarkozy, a Nazi Germany reunification advocate and sympathizer has played a pivotal role in the Nazi European Union ideology and bailouts. Sarkozy was sent by his Fuhrer German Chancellor Angela Merkel to China to beg China and other states to bankroll the Nazi German dream - a unified Europe under the control of Germany.

European Peripheral Bond Risk Explodes: Forget Brexit, "Now It's Italy's Turn"

If there was any doubt that Brexit was "relevant" then the surges in European peripheral bond risk, despite massive bond-buying by The ECB, should send shivers up and down the status quo huggers that are shrugging the referendum decision off because "central banks will provide liquidity." However, it's not just The UK that EU officials need to worry about, as The Globalist notes, Germany will have to change its policies if it wants to avoid exit of other countries from the eurozone.

ANOTHER poll gives Brexit a six-point lead with just a week to go as Boris denies he's fishing to be Prime Minister

With just one week until the historic referendum finally takes place, the latest surveys matched a string of polls over the past week to have shown big leads for Leave.

Brexit: a Challenge to America’s Domination of Europe

The lead financial writer at the Telegraph, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, wrote in 2000:

Declassified American government documents show that the US intelligence community ran a campaign in the Fifties and Sixties to build momentum for a united Europe.

***

The head of the Ford Foundation, ex-OSS officer Paul Hoffman, doubled as head of ACUE [below, we’ll explain who these players are] in the late Fifties. The State Department also played a role. A memo from the European section, dated June 11, 1965, advises the vice-president of the European Economic Community, Robert Marjolin, to pursue monetary union by stealth.

It recommends suppressing debate until the point at which “adoption of such proposals would become virtually inescapable”.

In other words, the U.S. State Department recommended ramming through the creation of the EU before Europeans knew what was happening.

NATO Says It Might Now Have Grounds To Attack Russia

NATO is now alleging that because Russian hackers had copied the emails on Hillary Clinton’s home computer, this action of someone in Russia taking advantage of her having privatized her U.S. State Department communications to her unsecured home computer and of such a Russian’s then snooping into the U.S. State Department business that was stored on it, might constitute a Russian attack against the United States of America, and would, if the U.S. President declares it to be a Russian invasion of the U.S., trigger NATO’s mutual-defense clause and so require all NATO nations to join with the U.S. government in going to war against Russia, if the U.S. government so decides.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


I hope this is just an attempt to bluff Putin into not releasing Hillary's emails!

Brexit Is The Only Way the Working Class Can Change Anything

Working-class people’s voices are rarely heard outside their communities, and almost never within the political or media sphere. However the EU referendum debate has opened up a Pandora’s box of working-class anger and frustration. It is clear that the Westminster politicos are quite unnerved by this. Even I am surprised by how the referendum has captured the attention and the imagination of the same people that only last year told me they had no interest in the general election “because ‘they’ are all the same”.

Some 13 months later they are asking me what I think and arguing with me about the finer points of Brexit. In working-class communities, the EU referendum has become a referendum on almost everything.

Osborne on the brink: Furious Tory MPs pledge to OUST Chancellor after he threatens to hike income tax and slash spending if we leave the EU

The Chancellor faced the unprecedented backlash from more than 60 of his own colleagues as he warned against opting for 'austerity' with dramatic hikes on income tax and fuel duty.

He insisted the poorest would 'pay the price' if we decide to take a 'leap in the dark' - and also risked further inflaming public anger over immigration by dismissing the prospect of curbs on free movement from the bloc.

But in the most vicious Blue-on-Blue clashes of the campaign so far, Conservative Brexit supporters immediately responded that they would not allow him to impose the 'emergency' Budget. They said his position would be 'untenable' if he tried to impose it.

And even his Remain allies Labour disowned the drastic measures, saying they would be the 'wrong thing to do'.

New poll shows slump in Scottish support for remain vote just days before EU referendum

Support for remaining in the European Union (EU) appears to have dipped in Scotland as the referendum draws nearer.

An Ipsos Mori poll for STV suggests backing for the remain camp, while still well ahead, has fallen by 13% over the last two months.

They have warned: ‘If he were to proceed with these proposals, the Chancellor’s position would become untenable.’

Commenting, Vote Leave Chief Executive Matthew Elliott said: "George Osborne’s reckless teenage temper tantrum has proved a step too far.

"Threatening to vandalise the economy has led to his MPs effectively declaring no confidence in him. The Prime Minister must reflect on the failure of his appalling scare tactics and stop undermining the British economy for his own political interests."

Vote Leave chief executive Matthew Elliott last night said: ‘This is literally the gravy train that the £350 million a week we send to Brussels is paying for.

‘If we weren’t paying for the fine dining and extravagant cuisine of MEPs we would have more money to spend on our priories like the NHS.

The European Commission on Wednesday proposed a new system for enforcing the relocation of migrants around the EU, giving countries that refuse to accept refugees an expensive “pay-to-not-play” option.

The measure, which would set a price of €250,000 per migrant for countries that want to avoid EU-imposed quotas for the resettlement of asylum-seekers, is part of a raft of new proposals aimed at rebooting the EU’s beleaguered strategy for dealing with the migration crisis.

CHAOS ERUPTS IN PARIS AS RIOT POLICE UNLEASH ON 50,000-STRONG LABOR PROTEST

French police unleashed tear gas and water cannons on demonstrators Tuesday as tens of thousands packed the streets of Paris in an outpouring of opposition to the government's anti-labor agenda.

The CGT labor union, which helped organized the march, hoped Tuesday's mobilization would be the largest since protests launched over new labor standards, which allow employers to more easily fire workers and create precarious, lower paid positions in place of permanent contracts.

"I’ve been to all the demos since March because I want to live in dignity, not just survive," Aurelien Boukelmoune, a 26-year-old technician, told AFP in Paris. "I want the reforms to be withdrawn, pure and simple. Only then will it stop. For the government's sake, they should withdraw the law, otherwise we'll block the economy."

Murdoch Newspaper Urges UK Exit from European Union

According to the YouGov poll for The Times, "Leave" held 46 percent support compared with 39 percent support for "Remain." Undecided voters were 11 percent, while 4 percent won't vote.

SUN SAYS We urge our readers to beLEAVE in Britain and vote to quit the EU on June 23

WE are about to make the biggest ­political decision of our lives. The Sun urges everyone to vote LEAVE.

We must set ourselves free from dictatorial Brussels.

Brexit vote is about the supremacy of Parliament and nothing else: Why I am voting to leave the EU
