Art of Superstate: Part Three

POST-BREXIT-Dismantling the European Union:  Remain Absorbs the Five Stages of Grief Simultaneously.  

May 23rd 2016. An article appeared in the Guardian newspaper under the heading

How will the Brexiteers react if they
lose? Expect bitterness and frustration

The dreadful contamination of the EU’s loathing for democracy spread into the hearts and minds of some in the Remain camp. Not all I might say. Some are respectful of the will of the people. However there is a vocal few who are outspoken about over-turning the vote and are demanding a re-run of the referendum; won’t happen of course.
A great star has left the Union to shine bright in a wider
stellar system. Expect bitterness and frustration from Brussels.
Rumors say the EU is planning to evict a small member
state on corruption charges as an act of revenge and a warning to
the rest to tow the line of loyalty. Image Frankfurt 2012

But this is precisely the EU disease of vote again till you get it right attitude which started the terminal rot of that institution. France, Netherlands and Ireland were either ignored or sent back to fix their mistakes in 2005 and 2008. But not this time! The British are too big to be pushed around.

The size of this outpouring of public grief can be measure by over four million people signing a petition to cast aside the referendum vote.  This would mean to run and run the issue again until democracy becomes a mirror of how the EU perceives it should look. In other words disobedience towards “More Europe” will not be tolerated.

In October 2013, the then president of the European council Herman Van Rompuy announced in his state of the Union address:

“But ultimately, we will convince people not with rhetoric and words alone (even if words are needed), but with results, with growth, with jobs.”

Oh! how out of synchronisation  is the EU with its citizens. And more so, they were told this solid fact over and over and over.

Now that the dismantling of the EU in its present shape and form is begun, it would help the four million in national angst and indeed the EU itself to absorb the final stage of Grief- Acceptance.

Brexit E.U. Referendum is Won. Fallout is Bitter. Cooler Heads Are Waiting to Take the Lead.

It had to happen.  And it did; democracy has stood up against the march of technocratic rule in Europe. Loyalty to the EU’s Commission that has divided Europe is shattered.

Sovereignty is restored to the British people; giving hope to those in Europe who are Euroskeptic.

Hope is a stronger emotion than fear.  “Project Fear” which focused on the economy, the negative and the absurd, failed to overcome citizen concerns about immigration and sovereignty. It is a lesson for the architects of Superstate to learn. That lesson is- a great political deception (that they know better than the people) can often deceive the deceivers into thinking they can deceive the people – even when their deceptions have been exposed.

 Arrogance and bloated self-importance is the Brussels Europhile elites’ cancer. They must now be wondering where their EU Project is now heading; possibly to the grave.

Already there are calls from some quarters to ignore the result. If this were to happen then a street revolution would surely follow; to seal this historic moment from the majority, is a gamble too risky to consider.

Sovereignty is restored. The cost is a divided Europe. The UK is still part of the EU and stunned at the referendum outcome.
Negotiations should begin at once. Hard decisions made. I am not a Royalist but I am Loyal to the Lands my ancestry has provided for me.

I suspect the referendum will be downplayed as no more than an expression of British distrust and disdain for the EU. But for the sake of re-framing citizen cohesion in a fractured Europe - it cannot be ignored.

The EU Commission now needs to be disbanded or at best brought under the control of sanity and proper vision for the continent.

France, Italy and Spain are worried. They should be. For in the coming months ahead the EU’s failings and clumsy handling of the financial crisis will become increasingly apparent. Recrimination, frothing and skeptic empowerment will detonate the simmering resentment towards the EU’s political classes.  They had better watch out.

In the UK families are split down the middle over what to do next. Seventeen million “Brexiteers” should not gloat or show victorious rejoice towards sixteen million “Remainders.”  

NO! NO! NO! The great challenge is to re-unite the U.K. to correct the compounded damage the now discredited EU ideology has done to its citizens over the past Twenty –three years.

Brexit EU Referendum: Eternal Vigilance is the Price of Freedom

Calved from necessity after 1945 the Common market was officially transformed at Maastricht in 1993. For the 23 years since, this European Union, this controversial institution carved out a deceptive mission to manage “Art of Superstate.”  Now, it is finally under the spotlight of accountability. The question being put to the British citizens is do we accept or reject this deception and its entire works.

The debate is so close; none can make a sure call for the outcome.

British conscientiousness is expressed in a field beside the 303 highway
at Basingstoke, Hampshire, England.
Image June 2016   
The result of the British referendum will offer the UK two choices; a courageous path to a Global role; or to be locked into the EU’s plan for Superstate with a divided populace in a divided Europe, steamrolling towards further confrontation over the nature of its flawed character. 

For the Brussels Federalists, it now matters little how the vote is cast. Either way there will never be a meaningful trust towards the EU machine after this referendum.  – Art of Superstate- is Finished.

This era, when a group of faceless unelected and self-serving Federalists and their technocrat servants wallow in their dream of instructing hundreds of millions on how to run their affairs, is Over.

After this vote - regardless of the outcome -the tone and atmosphere in the corridors of the Commission’s Berlaymont building in Brussels-will (and rightly so) - be one of despondent self pity at its failure to pressure and coerce Europe into a federal state.

History will point out that no project of such magnitude can succeed without proper consultation with the people and their willing support.

Of course, without Britain, the EU will struggle on for a while; maybe into the next financial crisis, when the Euro buckles and is deserted.  Maybe the closeness of the vote will set off a change reaction across Europe. Maybe there will be another attempt to ignore the people and carry on with the Federalists plans. Maybe –maybe –maybe!

One truth is evident- In ignoring the value of Freedom and Democracy cherished by those who have won and kept it safe through thick and thin -the EU was always destined to fail.

The painted view from Britain is why
take a chance with its Democracy and Sovereignty.
After all the EU is just an ideology. And ideologies
 can go very wrong. Just ask our forefathers.
Image; Chartwell House June 2016   
In gazing through the Looking Glass - painting a picture of the future, I see a European Union struck down by the folly and arrogance of its own character. This folly is its inability to reform or respond to citizens concerns.

Twenty-first century UK has modern leadership roles, one of which is to check dangerous moves by those who would put themselves above the will of the people.

The EU has pursued its objectives to dilute plebiscite rights and opinions in favour of an unproven ideology.

The European Union project is widely considered a threat to freedom and democracy.  And so as I prepare to vote Leave I think of these two quotes about safeguarding democracy over the past centuries.

“The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime, and the punishment of his guilt.” - John Philpot Curran Irish lawyer and politician - Speech July 10, 1790, Dublin.

“Freedom is fragile and must be protected. To sacrifice it, even as a temporary measure, is to betray it.” - Germaine Greer, Feminist activist - “The Female Eunuch” October 1970 London.

Brexit EU: Referendum 2016: Lisbon Treaty’s Article 42, From tourism to Tour of Duty.

Deception -The practice used till now by the EU commission to reach its stated objectives of political and fiscal union in Europe; thus avoiding permissions of the populace.
So far it has managed to split the continent over the purpose of the European Project, raised youth unemployment to record levels, subjugated entire countries to humiliation and poverty and best of all has gotten away with it.

Now it has a date to complete its mission as set out in the five presidents’ report. That date is 2025. The means to achieve this “Utopian nightmare” is the Lisbon treaty. It is especially interesting to watch the language change as the reader ploughs through the Articles of this document from delightful innocent piffle, past dreamy eyed visions of a perfect world-

The Lisbon Treaty is the Bible of the European Union to create
a new Superstate complete with its own Army
image 2016

Article 2
1. The Union's aim is to promote peace, its values and the well-being of its peoples.
2. The Union shall offer its citizens an area of freedom, security and justice without internal frontiers, in which the free movement of persons is ensured in conjunction with appropriate measures with respect to external border controls, asylum, immigration…..It shall promote ……solidarity among Member States.

To the outright sinister goal to create an aggressive fighting force under the strong influence of the president of the European Commission.

Article 42

 3. Member States shall make civilian and military capabilities available to the Union for the implementation of the common security and defence policy, Those Member States which together establish multinational forces may also make them available to the common security and defence policy. Member States shall undertake progressively to improve their military capabilities.

From Tourism to Tour of Duty. The EU will be permitted to
requisition military and Civilian assets for acts of military
capabilities. The actions include invasion and peace-making.
Image 2016 

 In the course of which the Union may use civilian and military means, shall include joint disarmament……..tasks of combat forces in crisis management, including peace-making and post-conflict stabilisation. All these tasks may contribute to the fight against terrorism, including by supporting third countries in combating terrorism in their territories.

One of the weapons of Deception the Union uses is Interpretation. This is the role of the European court of Justice (ECJ). The court almost always rules in favour of the European Commission in any dispute over Interpretation between the commission and the rest of the Union.

So how does the Commission get control of Europe by legal means you ask?
It is all written down in the treaty. Punctuated throughout the Lisbon Treaty are inserts and amendments to circumvent any objections to the goal of a central political and fiscal Superstate supported by a pan European army- paid for and supplied by the member states.

This little bit is particularly useful for the commission in pursuit of staying out of the spotlight by controlling free speech.

The Member States shall support the Union's external and security policy actively and unreservedly in a spirit of loyalty and mutual solidarity and shall comply with thUnion's action in this area.

The Member States shall facilitate the achievement of the Union's tasks and refrain from any measure which could jeopardise the attainment of the Union's objectives.’
…. They shall refrain from any action which is contrary to the interests of the Union or likely to impair its effectiveness as a cohesive force in international relations.

The Council and the High Representative shall ensure compliance with these principles.

In other words you may disagree in private but you may not openly criticise the Union and its works.
To initiate a military action there is the following provision for the Commission.

4. Decisions relating to the common security and defence policy, including those initiating a mission as referred to in this Article, shall be adopted by the Council acting unanimously on a proposal from the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy…. together with the Commission.

A safeguard you might say is in the unanimous action. But no! The Commission gets around this by creating a separately controlled permanent force.

Those Member States whose military capabilities fulfil higher criteria …..shall establish permanent structured cooperation within the Union framework.

The European Defense Agency referred to in Article 42 (3) shall be open to all Member States wishing to be part of it. The Council, acting by a qualified majority, shall adopt a decision defining the Agency's statute, seat and operational rules.
Specific groups shall be set up within the Agency bringing together Member States engaged in joint projects. The Agency shall carry out its tasks in liaison with the Commission where necessary.

Heading for a new army. The EU has used deception and the European Court of Justice
 to bring Europe's citizens to a breath of a new Superstate with its own military capabilities.
And all in the name of the people but without a whisper of its intentions. Image EDA

The final sway towards control comes in the shape of removing vetoes and diluting down resistance from the Council of Europe. It is called “Qualified Majority Voting” This is a situation where any group of countries small or big can start a military action by representing 65% of the population of the European Union.
Given that 35% of a 508 million population is 178 million then Europe could technically go to war without the consent of France, UK and Italy.
But these three major countries would still be obliged to supply the means and the money to complete any military action should in theory Macedonia invade Slovenia.

7. If a Member State is the victim of armed aggression on its territory, the other Member States shall have towards it an obligation of aid and assistance by all the means in their power,

Does this apply internally and can it refer to separatist movements of which there are many cross the continent.
So! Roll over NATO ..here comes the European Defence Agency under the mighty influence of the President of the European Commission. Who says “Power is Never Given.

Brexit EU: Referendum 2016: Can European Democracy Survive “Project Fear.”

From the passion of daytime clashes over the European Union’s “Project Fear,” a worry has arisen that it is no longer a trick, but a new strategic normal to defeat European Democracy.

It is no secret that by 1941, Democracy in Europe was reduced to just 11 countries. How many today across the continent feel their freedom threatened by the vehemently anti-democratic forces in Brussels and their obsessions to forge a new Superstate.

Can European Democracy survive the creation of a Brussels inspired Superstate and the pan-nation army it
needs to ensure its existence. Some British generals think it is the road to conflict and war.
image 2016

A plan was hatched some years back to create a Europe where conflict was to be made unthinkable between its nations. That may be already an achievement to be proud of; but alas this is not the achievement of the European Union but rather the efforts of Nato and the five members of the Security council. The alliance of the US, France and the United Kingdom was the drive behind the peace.

Now the European Union wants to duplicate the security institutions of the Atlantic alliance and create a pan nation European Army, under whose control none knows. There is no stomach for it at the moment in Europe but if countries lock into the Five Presidents of the European Union’s master-plan for Political and Fiscal union by 2025, “Project Fear” will be already rooted in EU strategy and policy. It will be playing its part in creating the demons and the enemies to the EU’s existence.
Make no mistake about Federalist intentions up to and after 2025. For them it is a win all lose all game.

Once a nation is rooted in a “No way out” Superstate, “Project Fear” will become the organ of conflict and wanton confrontation beyond the control of its member states and their citizens; conflict, which will not be between European nations, but between regions, economies, those who have and those who have not.

Brexit EU: Referendum 2016. Brexit Rebels Hold Firm after Establishment Onslaught.

Brexit Rebels hold firm after establishment onslaught over
post-EU economy. The more sensitive debates follow.
Security and Sovereignty will dominate May & June.
Image  UK 2016

UK rebels fighting against the European Union and its Federalist agenda to create a Superstate by 20125 have held their ground after an unprecedented “Project Fear” onslaught from the world’s financial and elitist establishment.

From nearly every quarter of big business, banks and financial intuitions, the economic debate over the coming Brexit vote focused on the negative and the punishment to be meted out if the people vote for a restoration of democracy..

This UK referendum is a battle to win over a very small number of undecided voters about the three main issues at stake.

Economy – Security – Sovereignty.

From an array of polls, the outcome of the economic debate puts the EU faction slightly ahead.
However this is doubtful to last if one considers the relative small figures involved against the enormity of the decision to shackle the country to the EU for the next several decades.

The economic argument assumes there will be no corrections, new thinking or any of the entrepreneurial British spirit about after the vote to leave; just stagnation or impotence; just how wrong this part of “Project Fear” is!

What is surprising about “Project Fear” is just how little fear it is actually producing across the country. The British are digging in to resist.

Maybe this is what the EU in Brussels needs to see/hear before it continues to treat its members with the contempt and bullying we saw them deliver to weaker countries during the first EU financial crisis.

The EU declared target date for the Federalist “Art of Superstate” is 2025.

Brexit Rebels holding firm in 2016 might just thwart these backroom plans for European domination.

Easter Rising commemorations 1916 -2016: A view from Derry’s Bogside:

A human lifetime is relatively short compared to the collective memory of a nation’s actions – a memory about human engagements that create and shape our destiny. This memory stretches back centuries if not millennium and further still as we search for clues about who we are.

Ireland’s communities have their good examples of how moments of tragic hunger, famine, rebellious bravery and emigration are embedded in its recent collective memory. Every nation has similar moments.
Easter Rising commemoration in the famed Bogside area of Derry.
 An Irish Rebublican  stronghold, it gave birth to Irish Civil Rights and the Provisional IRA.
 Now it feels the winds of change in how it presents its Irishness to the world and its neighbour the United Kingdom
. Image: March 2016

There is always however, a time for changes to this memory. Not in the facts around their actual happening; these facts will always inspire and attract the attention of inquiring minds. The changes I speak of are about relevance and influence to the society of the moment and how historical journeys are continuously formatting long after these remarkable historical events have past. Respect for history and all its contradictions is part of our character.

The 1916 Easter commemorations have brought into view a variety of changes in looking at its significance and influence; not only in Ireland but also in Britain.

It may seem like Great Britain and Ireland have separate narratives to tell its people and the world. In looking at these stories it is clear they are part of the same larger history. Connected by culture, commerce, freedom and blood, there has never been a better time for change in how we feel about our collective memory - A change to pursue political progress with economic development.

In the famed Irish Republican stronghold of Derry's Bogside area, during its 2016 Easter commemoration, change is evident; a celebration of memory as opposed to a resentment to how that memory came about. It is not complete in the national psychic   but is diluting the old grievances with a maturing reverence. It has taken 100 years to feel this change in how we embrace our memories; and maybe a 100 more for them to be legend; our lives may be short, but our histories are long, together they create the eternal memory about who we are.

Brexit EU Referendum: Legacy of E.U. Membership Leaves A Nation Divided

Let’s be clear about the role of the European Union (E.U.) But wait, why hear my words when you can get it from the horse’s mouth.

“We’re not here to make a single market – that doesn’t interest me - but to make a political union.” - Jacques Delors, 1993.

And who is Jacques Delors!

Jacques Lucien Jean Delors (born 20 July 1925) is a French economist and politician, previously the eighth President of the European Commission between January 1985 and January 1995.

Now remember there is a difference between Europe and the E.U. The E.U. is like a company or association charged with the mission of creating a Superstate. None know who will be in charge of the new Empire or whether it will be a positive or a negative force in the world.

Among the many citizens across its 27 member states challenging the E.U.’s mission to make a political union is the Mayor of London Boris Johnston who says:
Sovereignty may prove to be the crucial topic for the English voter 

“We are seeing a slow and invisible process of legal colonisation, as the EU infiltrates just about every area of public policy. A vote to Remain will be taken in Brussels as a green light for more federalism, and for the erosion of democracy.”

The Legacy of the E.U. by 2016 is a Europe divided and on the cusp of forming an Army to fight in foreign wars. In the United Kingdom the greatest decision in a generation to Leave or Remain will no doubt split the country.

Is membership of this Union worth the deep lasting divisions brought about with its obsession for a federal Europe!

Seemingly the answer is YES and NO depending on which way you intent to vote. The PM has declared that leaving the EU will not restore sovereignty to the UK. But that he has stopped the hemorrhaging of powers to Brussels.

Boris Johnston and others declare there might be still time to save British democracy.

Make no mistake! This referendum will in the end focus on these two words “British Democracy”

In the end it will come to dominate the debate over who is prepared to give it away and who is prepared to save it.

Brexit EU Referendum: Waiting For Godot.

The British press universally lashed out at the UK PM over his watered down “Brussels Deal.” Apparent capitulation over watered down proposals from the Polish European Council President has left the “Leave” camp with a much stronger argument in the up-coming Referendum over Britain’s relationship with the European Union institution.

The deal over borders, migrants, laws and benefits are interpreted as much ado about nothing and a bit of “A Joke.”
 “Your Brussels deal has done nothing to halt migrants,
nothing to win powers back for Britain.
Sorry, Prime Minister, but... IT STINKS

However, the most serious reaction to the announcement is the lack of it from the “Leave” camp. The importance of this referendum cannot be understated. This vote is pitched as a once in a generation opportunity to decide democratically our country’s future. We are at loggerheads with a discredited and ever emboldened power hungry institution hell bent on constructing a technocratic Superstate; an uncontrolled "Gorgon style Network" of self-interested corporate and "Elitist" families managed by an army of faceless and unaccountable bureaucrats. We have the choice and the means to change direction but committed and passionate leadership for the "Leave" campaign is lacking.

Battle of the messages is paramount for this referendum. Leadership is crucial
 if the people are to be convinced to vote Leave.

When a cause is deemed correct and just, credit for its victory is a national prize and not the ambition of individuals and political opportunists. “Unity is strength!” The “Leave” campaign needs to find it and refrain from “Waiting For Godot.”

Brexit EU Referendum: The Fuddle Before the Muddle.

(There is) “So much to fight for and so much to lose!” - A random slogan I just picked out of the blue conveying an importance over “Brexit” and “More Europe.”
The deadline for the long awaited Brexit referendum is coming into sharper focus. The political landscape is shuffling. The armies of “Leave” and “Stay” are rising from the ground to engage in a tremendous battle to influence destiny.

Those in Brussels and London who claim to know best, “What is best for the people” are waking up to the real possibility that the smart classes which guide democracy have also ideas about what is “best for the people.” And, they differ from the troubled “Europhile Elites.” Elites, who so far have provided Europe’s citizens with a catalogue of misjudgements, dogmatic obsessions and outright unnecessary confrontation with Europe’s near neighbours.

They pepper their short existence as a European Union with achievements that matter little to the lives of Europe’s citizens, such as “How they won the Nobel prize for Peace” or “the rock-bed of free movement of people.”  The fact is, neither of these, or most of any other of their claims to justify their bloated presence, are new or inspiring enough to surrender centuries of work building “New Democracy” in Europe.

Theoretically, closer Europe is always a good idea. But what does that actually mean in the daily management of a continent. So far, since the Maastricht treaty in 7th February 1992, it (E.U.) has been given power, followed by it asking for more power and now it is demanding more power, including an Army, (of all things) to play around with. And yet the outlook is gloomy for this Union; a (E.U.) Union now peddling fear and uncertainty if people consider rejecting its existence.

In London, the old divide where the south east of England looks east while the rest of the Isles look west, outbound and global is shaping the nature of this upcoming referendum.  English Europhiles are being accused of manufacturing a “Project Fear” over this vote; fear of the unknown and uncertainty over leaving the unpopular E.U. 

Lest we forget, Europe is shaped by countries that forged empires and fortunes by exploring the unknown. It is just this curiosity for challenge what makes destiny possible.   

Whatever happened to the challenge of a New Europe after 1945! Did it get lost in the fuddle and the muddle of backroom shenanigans, so often the trademark of E.U. decision making.

This vote/referendum is a vote for the challenge to shape destiny.  It will be hard to listen to the E.U. defining challenge as leap into the unknown; as if the British are afraid of it!

Israel, Palestine, Syria: For the Love of God and Al-Quds

Using God for cover and who loves most the Temple Mount and Al Quds, violence is escalating across the Levant to new and dangerous heights.

The October upsurge leaves Israelis and Palestinians dead and wounded in Tit for Tat gun and knife attacks some are calling a third Intifada.

The use of holy sites and access to them by those who believe sites to be sacred is hardly the true reason for this bout of senseless murder. Why would Jewish Israel or Islamic Jordon do any harm to the “Temple Wall” or the “Al Aqsa” compound. Isn’t praying to God supposed to be a peaceful activity!

None in any Government will see wisdom in destruction of these sites.

No change! Gun and knife attacks return across the land; for the Love of God
and Al-Quds. The start of a possible third Intifada. Image shows a Jewish settler
in Hebron and a Palestinian in the West Bank during the first Intifada 1990.
However, across the river and north of Damascus the armies of Iran, Syria, Hezbollah, Turkey and Russia are co-operating, albeit in small numbers, to confront an array of Saudi inspired and financially backed insurgents, rebels and Islamic militias. This theatre can only provide further practical battlefield experience and tactical upgrades for soldiers and offices alike.

Although almost all of the belligerent factions are opposites of each other in some shape or form, most of their political masters harbour visions of former regional power status. Such is the complications of a post Ottoman Empire.

The Middle East has fluctuated in and out of Empire and Dynasty since Sumerian and Babylonian times.

It is an old saying that inviting foreign armies into ones country is easier than asking them to leave. It just takes another excuse to further a cause and as we already know an excuse for war is not always the reason.  Ask those who lament and die for the “Love of God and Al Quds”

Should the third Intifada gathers momentum over protection of holy sites in Jerusalem- so will the numbers of waring hordes amassing beyond the Jordon River and north of Damascus!

As winners are declared in coming battles; rest assured the victorious will not make the same folly as Crusader General George Bush by putting defeated professional Iraqi warriors on the military market to morph into the present Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Isis).  The magnanimous gift of a new suit of armour with payment to fight for a glorious cause will keep these newly developing armies trained, primed and intact.

EU Crisis: Germany Absorbs Road Shock: Volkswagen Rules! What Rules! Money Rules! OK

The chief of Volkswagen resigned this week with a severance pay in the region of 28 million Euros. 
He was forced to resign after his position became untenable. 

The company got caught out by a sharp witted American regulator who noticed a Trojan horse in German cars. Software it is, to fiddle diesel emissions to read below their reality in order to meet US standards.

 Image Berlin 1989

Apparently the standards are silly figures in the first place.  Everyone does it in the EU. Fiddle that is. The Greeks did it; the French never take EU rules seriously, just like their German colleagues. The East Europeans refuse refugee quotas even though many migrated West after Communism fell in 1989.  None is exempt. The list is complete.

So what's the all the hullabaloo about.  Well for one thing- it is the normalisation of wrongness and the acceptance of cheating as common practice. This may be human nature, as we say and why try to change it.

But it is not really human nature to be a victim no matter what the cause or the excuses.

Lying is killing people for bigger sales quota and beefier bank sheets.  If even one is found to have died as a result of corporate lies to increase its wealth then it is a crime.  Or maybe not a crime.

Hey, this is going on all the time. That’s what corporations and people do. It’s called free speech. It is not a crime to lie, unless it breaks a specific law, no, it’s just a breach of standards. And for that breach some get labelled as lairs and some get 28 million Euros

E.U. Crisis: Europe’s Shame As it Rejects Results of its War Meddling

Europe - 5,000,000 recorded deaths per year: “War Refugees-displaced & migrants” 224,000 in 2015.  

War is a terrible thing for its losers. In today’s theatre of operations it seems everyone is a loser. America is reeling from its legacy of invasion, torture and failure to realise objectives. The EU has managed to alienate Russia over bungling interference in its internal affairs. Russia is suffering under sanctions. Iraq, Syria, Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Iran and Saudi Arabia are embroiled in desperate struggles for control and stability with little or no chance of success in the near future. Situations mostly instigated by Western policy and by direct action.
Through little fault of their own "War Refugees" are created, displaced and ultimately  rejected by "The New World Order"
The EU's shame, cruelty and lack of responsibility is comparable to events in the 1930's . Image : A statement from the
Cypriot capital Nicosia 2015.

This is the fruit of contemporary politics - the “New World Order” 

In the aftermath of bloody battle displaced persons are despairing to escape the pain and fraught. Some have nothing to lose and others have everything to lose.

For some, a drowning death in frantic and horrific circumstances is on offer. Others must witness the cruelty and utter barbarity of rejection, uncertainty, humiliation and death after reaching the shores of those who have put them in the situation of becoming “War Refugees.”   

In watching the abdication of the European Union’s responsibility towards fellow human beings in their bleak, desolate and weary time of need is heart-breaking but not surprising. Europe once again is embracing the darkness of turning a blind eye to problems they helped create. Their leader’s obsession with credit, fiscal power and austerity is blinding their very reason and purpose.

Such is the results of a Europe centrally focused, selfish and cruel. Just like it has always been.

In the end we are what we are, just like it has always been.

EU Crisis: Who Cares Wins: Marathon Greek Battle De-Thrones Angela Merkel as De Facto Queen of Europe.

It’s game over for the architects of austerity in Berlin and the technocratic Brussels bubble.  Democracy won a great battle. And the fight took place in its birthplace as Greeks defiantly closed the down the taboo of rule by “financial terrorism” and confronted credit with default.

Well! That was Sunday July 5th 2015 after the Greek referendum and its 60% “Oxi” vote. This historic “No” vote came after a barrage of threats, coercion and panic mongering by the “Yes to more austerity, humiliation and subjugation” camp led by Berlin, Finland, Benelux, and the Baltic states.

With classic European Byzantine wheeling and dealing this result was overturned and a week later the above paragraph 2 now reads like its mirror image.

 It’s game on for the architects of austerity in Berlin and the technocratic Brussels bubble.  Democracy lost a great battle. The fight took place in its birthplace as Greeks succumbed to the rule of “financial terrorism” and accepted more credit without default.

This was a battle in a war. A war pitching Democratic principles against a Technocratic global regime - the outcome determined by the motto: “Who Cares Wins!”   This brutal Technocracy claims they are best suited to rule us as Democracy is responsible for making bad decisions. - You just couldn’t make it up if you tried.

This blog asserted correctly in November 2010 that the EU’s future would be determined by the treatment of the Greek crisis, (/fishy-euro-playground.html) That treatment has now resulted in a breakdown of trust and faith in ability and direction for the European project. It has exposed a massive lack of “Unity” and a great deal of “Diversity” that is and will be Europe for the rest of this current historic epoch.  “National Egoism” is the character of communities and nations across the planet. It defines who we are and shapes values positive and negative. In the end a uni-polar technocratic society is an enslaved society. Thus speaks history.   

The Northern block and the Southern neighbourhood will feel this fall-out for years to come.
 And at the heart of the long list of casualties is Chancellor Angel Merkel- the Saxon Queen of Europe- who no longer seems invulnerable to these remarkable events.
In a week when China’s stock market faced its biggest rout since 1992, the relatively tiny Greek financial crisis was ripping the heart out of the Federalist European project; the priority being to teach Greece and the rest of the Democrats a lesson in who rules.
A call for more Europe will be the standard Federalist response. “More Europe is born out of crisis” they have been heard to cry over and over and over. But who cares wins!  Citizens care about their own, their country, their cultures, their future and especially their democracy.

This political debate will continue against those pursing technocratic agendas with devastating costs; costs which includes war, division and humanitarian crises on the southern and eastern flanks.

EU Greek Crisis. European Project Reduced to a Game of Chicken, & A House of Euro Slavery.

Greece refuses to bow the demands of their lenders, despite the growing risk of default.
The Greek PM told his MPs: No to humiliation, No to financial strangulation and no to the IMF. It has “criminal responsibility” for the damage caused to the Greek economy since its first bailout.
Tsipras continued; "The mandate we've taken by the Greek people is *not* a mandate of creative ambiguity; it is clear mandate to stop austerity. “The obsession of the Institutions on such measures means that they want the humiliation of the Greek people.

European Parliament president Martin Schulz replied “Any abandonment of the euro would also result in a member state's ejection from the EU.”
 If this were to be true then Euro-skeptics have a new weapon to break the chains.
The Greeks responded with; “This is the moral choice Syriza has to make. It is the poisonous legacy of the EU-IMF Troika bail-out in May 2010, when EMU leaders roped in their own taxpayers to bail out German and French banks and save the euro. So yes, it is possible to imagine the worst. Yet if Europe was to act on this punitive impulse, it would compound the disaster. “

From Russian with Love.

But the Biscuit went to the Polish PM who announced to the world that the whole Malarkey was nothing more than a “Game of Chicken” and a “ Blame Game.” Would he feel the same if it was his nation of Poles who were feeling the brunt of a Troika financial pillorying and enduring a humanitarian crisis. This EU and its European Project has degenerated to outright humiliation, subjugation and Euro slavery. Europe has never been more divided since the Cold War. 

Most likely there will be the usual political muddle and fuddle to paper the cracks before the end of June default deadline to the IMF. Greece’s reality is now so weak it can barely stand on its feet and may succumb to being forced fed, bound, gagged and thrown back into its cell.

No doubt there will be the nod and wink to others from the Brussels Dictate to say this is how far we will go to trample Democracy into the ground and prove ourselves right about the Euro.

However, behind the scenes Putin’s strategy for EU containment is working. From Russia comes love for those who are being thrashed and humiliated by the forces of Global Financial terrorism. Their mantra being as follows:  

 "Capital must protect itself in every way. Debts must be collected, mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When through the process of law the common people lose their homes, they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers.
 People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders. This is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of capitalism to govern the world.
By dividing the people we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance to us except as teachers of the common herd.
It is thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished." - Banker’s Association 1924

Mr Tsipras had warned some weeks earlier that this crisis risk setting off a process that may "entirely transform the economic and political balances throughout the West." He may just be right about that.

The Great Scottish Debate #4: Unions New and Old Face Decisive Battles during Next Parliaments.

Democracy won a great victory in the UK this week. Against all the predictions, backbiting, backstabbing, spite and malice, the British electorate voted decisive victories north and south of the border.

The English referendum over E.U. clutches is gathering unstoppable momentum, as is the sea of yellow flags marching on to shape Scotland’s destiny.

The Brussels Federalists are getting a lesson in why democracy may mean little to them but is everything to the citizens they wish to control.

Bang on cue, some political and media commentators are displaying resentment and vulgarity towards the SNP victory.  This can be dismissed as immature.

What cannot be dismissed is the reality of political economics, now proving to be today’s mantra for votes and power.  As oil diminishes in size and revenue, Scottish plans for independence (one would imagine) should reflect the challenge to develop alternatives over time. After all if Scots can wait 300 yrs. Why not another 15 to get it totally prepared.

SNP victories are sea changing for the Old Union. Democracy is working.
 The question is asked will Democracy be permitted
 to shape the future of the New European Union in 2017.

There are plenty of examples where small nations have bitten the bullet and built up viable economies. But in contemporary society a sole diet of nationalism is not enough. A convergence of episodes face those who want to alter the shape and direction of two Unions

2017 is now a date for heads to contemplate. It is one of those dates which can become metamorphic in principal and in reality, for positive or negative.

Two Unions stand locked in debate about their future. The UK and the E.U. have emerged as the contenders to determine the near future for the London-Paris-Berlin sphere.

Brussels is managed by a near hysterical group of Federalists hell bent on their vision for Europe, regardless of citizen’s democratic wishes or objections.

In the run –up to 2017 they (Brussels) may see their objectives made all the easier if a disgruntled UK were to leave the EU. England may see their objectives made all the easier by handing over a new and significantly economically less powerful Scotland to be a vassal of the Euro. Does anyone wish to become another Greece!

Under these conditions the old Union may still have some life in it; albeit a Union with a much needed remolding over how it functions.

Scottish self-determination is a most likely a given in our lifetime. The question is - with the vote for independence now secured, can the SNP be leader enough to judge the right time to play this card.

E.U. Crisis: Angela Merkel Sings, I Don't Know Why You Say Goodbye, I Say Hello

Trust for the European project, and especially its leadership, is evaporating as fast as capital flight from Greek banks.

The federalist’s dream is becoming a muddle in the puddle of pessimism and foreboding as the democratic will of nations gathers momentum.

As usual, in the Byzantine world of modern European politics, blame is forever the hot potato one strenuously avoids to handle.

For Alexis Tsipras, forcing Angela Merkel to make the decision to evict Greece from the Eurozone would support Syrizia’s role to introduce the Drachma, devalue and become competitive. “Look what the Germans did to us.”

It would be a mortal body blow to the E.U.  “This is what to expect if you get into trouble, regardless of whom is to blame!” Their cry would reverberate around the Union. “Why follow a Union which doesn’t share burdens and transfer profit and loss where it is needed!”

The answer of course is, there is no transfer Union in place to implement such tools of governance; but if we were to have closer Union both fiscal and political then this would be all so possible.
And you see that’s the crunch. Do the people of Europe buy this promise? Or do they trust their own to govern their own!

Merkel publicly states she wants Greece to remain in the Euro, but to struggle on till 2050 to repay all debts in abject misery and poverty if necessary.  “Maybe this will be unacceptable to Greeks and hopefully leave of their own accord.”

It’s the muddle in the puddle again for the EU and who’s to blame for its coming failure. “I don’t know why you say goodbye I say hello.”
