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.

Security and Sovereignty will dominate May & June.

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.

 In 2006 it was purchased by GmbH HQM of Leipzig.

 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.

after claims of a political coup over the Greek debt crisis. Image:

 thank you very much. 2014
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.
A Separatist pictured in Ukraine. Can Putin
export a new Revolution to counter
Global Financial Terrorism!

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.
 image Alex Aitchison / Documenting Yes 

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.”
The Lone Star of  European Unity Chancellor Angela Merkel calls out to
Greeks behind their barricades. But does she sing Hello or Goodbye.
After the euphoria of  German reunification a USE is now off the
 immediate agenda.  Image CDU 2015, Berlin 1989, Nicosia 2015.

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.”

EU Crisis: Frausterity Merkel: Warsterity: And the Greek Rebellion.

Suddenly citizens are feeling less European, becoming more akin to defend the beloved country.

It’s a typical insurgent situation. A bad situation calls for intervention. Intervention makes a bad situation worse. Eventually the situation goes beyond worst to become intolerable. The result is rebellion, and the unknown.

National interest and national pride will never submit to
imposed intellectual what ifs! Image 2015 Pathos, A Greek world
heritage site
Sometimes the unknown is a realignment of national pride; a pulling together for the moment, a common interest for survival.  But mostly it is bitter recrimination; animosity against intervention with punishment for scapegoats of the day. 

Oh what a lovely Warsterity!  Nice battle-cry from Troika intuitions claiming to be guardians of fiscal competence over people power.  In the minds of people, resistance against “Warsterity” is growing.

Russia, Ukraine, Greece, The Baltics and the “PIGS within” are to blame for the EU getting into a wee spot of bother with their glorious master plan. Of course it has nothing to do with leadership, the Global banking “New world order” or planet Brussels spinning out of orbit.

Frausterity Merkel is no longer a Messiah for a European Dimension.  Europe is not a country, never will be, and for all extent and purpose shouldn't be.

Frausterity Merkel’s duty is to Germany and that is her mandate. As it is with others! The Euro and the EU is not a Crusade but an idea; an idea which needs revisiting.  

Whether Greece defends or capitulates is not the end of recurring unrest gripping Europe, and fomented by blinded ideologues. It must be the start of the end to Federalists imposing political directions which have waning support and no clear future.

E.U Crisis: Divisions Return: Brussels Loses A Dream for Superstate: Donbass Pushes Secession Goals

“Britain may withdraw from the EU unless there is a new treaty arrangement for countries that reject the Superstate project. There is no prospect of Britain joining the euro or becoming part of a "centralising project". …says the British Chancellor just meters from stony faced German finance minister Wolfgang Schauble at the Davos economic summit …………………….Daily Telegraph Jan 24 2015

An air of pessimism hangs over the resort as realities come to roost over the Eurozone’s performance and EU failed adventure in the Ukraine.
A Guard awakes from  slumber at the Greek Green Line in Nicosia Jan 2015
On mainland Greece the people have spoken out against German enforced
Austerity and the rule of the despised "Troika." It remains to be seen if the
EU will now unravel and Superstate consigned to the history pages

The Greeks have spoken out against “Fiscal Waterboarding.” The anti-austerity spectrum is gaining strength. The EU is finally seeing the massive social cracks it created and which it though would fear the people into political submission. This has backfired spectacularly. The 1% has a lot to loath after Syriza’s victory.

It is now fashionable to be anti-EU and fashionable to be part of a New Europe where Empire and Superstate is no longer a given solution to Europe’s troubled past.

For all the puffing and huffing about how the EU is doomed the bigger picture lies east of Kishinev where the Russian sponsored Donbass separatists are pushing for a corridor to Crimea. Should that succeed then it will be Odessa/Tiraspol’s turn to link a swath of southern Ukraine from Tiraspol to Luhansk. (The Wild Fields)

Miscalculation by the west over its involvement in Ukraine has been staggering. Russians are consolidation for a stand-off with the US and the EU. It threatens to split the world in two.

As sanctions are the only weapons the west can use for now against Russia, the Kremlin on the other hand can hand the west an impoverished and desolate rump Ukraine in 2015. Coupled with an Oriental response to Washington’s hawkish moves to control the world’s financial systems we may be seeing a return to divisions not witnessed since 1963.

E.U. Crisis: Rampant Citizen Austerity; P.O.W. Torture: Elitist Leadership Failure.

The United States took a hard look at the notorious Bush leadership and its reign against terror 2001 – 2009. It didn't like the reflection.

During and after WW11 many belligerents on the other side were executed for using the very torture techniques the Bush cabal paid $80millon to former army psychologists to update and enhanced these torture methods.
Whereas the CIA was following orders, just like all the others, leadership has choices. The buck stops with them.
Calls to make the Holocaust an educational subject gather strength as brutality, torture and
inhumane acts return to the western sphere. Auschwitz, above, is a place where even the coldest
heart melts viewing capable horrific deeds by Homo Sapiens. Image 2008, during the C.I.A.
rendition of P.O.W.s to camps in Poland and nearby countries which experienced WW11 atrocities.   
In effect the Bush administration sanctioned the physical and mental mistreatment of P.O.W.’s for nothing more than a brutal act of revenge in their acquirement of money. Make no mistake in realising; they at the top in that administration, made a killing.

This bout of in-human nature defies belief after the horrors of the Second World War. Do Homo sapiens deserve a place of prominence on this planet? Can we create a successor species in time before this cancer for self-loathing eats away any hope or any will to proceed further!

In Europe, the pursuit for the subjugation of the continents younger generation is continuing by Federalist elites in the Brussels/ Luxembourg/Corporate family camp.
Their goal to destroy democracy and any resistance to a Federal authority using financial ruin and austere economic domination, is no less a torture to citizens. 

If recent reports emanating out of the fester which has griped even the EU parliament, are to be believed, then none is to be trusted when it comes to promoting the European project or any talk of closer Union.

For these coming years, citizens will need to awake and look at recent past performances of those who would be our rulers. The rottenness of impunity for western leaders, those who schematise world management like the style of a Mafia family, is close to times before the great and terrible revolutions that failed the political evolution of our species.

EU Crisis: 25 Years After the Berlin Wall Collapsed, Cold Politics Returns to Europe

The EU, launched in January 1993 is a major let down. An organisation bedevilled with controversy and deemed unfit for purpose by governments and citizens alike.

A room with no view . 25 years since the Wall collapsed A new Cold War  is reaching Berlin. 
Has change been for the better!
Image 1989; An old Communist party building near near Palast der Reublik in Berlin, recently destroyed
against the wishes of the people who say it is a process to eradicate 20th century history 
In 2 years’ time the British people will decide its future.  If the British leave, Europe will languish on and on in Eurozone limbo till one by one the northern states join the global Atlantic Empire now in the making and whose reach will encompass a never setting sun.

EU Europe is not for reforming. Junker’s last stand is the commissions Alamo. None is afraid of speaking out about a post EU environment. And about where a cold political wind blows this Ship of Fools, blindly steering a conglomerate of iffy institutions hell bent on destroying democracy and installing a milder form of authoritarian communism. What could come after the split is unknown.  

Most people feel WW3 is already with us. It has the same ingredients as any war, economic austerity; un sourced terrorist threats, perpetual security alerts, national self-interest and an earning to explore wider political horizons.

And in Novembering Berlin 25years on, the architect of Glasnost and Perestroika Mikhail Gorbachev, the man who made it all happen, claims a new Cold War is here.  A possible tax criminal is president of the EU commission. The British political establishment is openly saying to its citizens EU reform is beyond reach. Netherlands, Italy and even France and Germany have doubts about EU progression. The ECB in Frankfurt is beyond comprehension to citizens about who it represents. The Mafia and the Vatican are looking very alike. And European aristocracy is just a money factory teamed with giant corporations and devoid of anchors to any social responsibility.

The EU Gravy train has run out of flavour. Berlin’s vision of a new Europe is gathering a gloomy view in a room with no windows.

Mapping the State of Islamic Authority: Visions of the Kingdom of Allah

In the end, there was never to be any re-construction of the Kingdom of Allah. The troops just left as they always do. After weary unfruitful years the money runs out, citizens loose interest and fearing attrition,  army commanders advise withdrawal.

Just like in the time of Rome’s domestic woes and chores, the “Barbarian” tribes capitalise on the situation and rush to fill any vacuum.

But the goal is not to sack London or Washington, but to claim Islamic authority over the Kingdom of Allah - A kingdom, floating not on prayer but gas and oil.

A Battle for Islamic Authority; Iran and Saudi Arabia locked in a deadly proxy war over wealth, power and influence
The decline of Turkey and the rise of Arab  and Kurdish confidence. A vision of The Kingdom of Allah  2014
Religion, for some, may be a bit of a laugh, but for others it is serious business.

Christianity’s once dominate position in the marketplace for trade, control and influence is no longer a top brand name. It doesn't do it for the shopper anymore.  Asian labour is the “New Trade” – A payoff for the inventing Western haves, to monetise - the work for very little have-nots. 
And in the middle-east vacuum, Shia Iran and Sunni Saudi Arabia sees one hundred years of wealth and power up for grabs.

The mechanism for control is the redrawing of the map by Arabs, Kurds and Persians, rubbing out colonial lines drawn by France and Britain after 1918 and post Ottoman rule. 

Kurdish aspirations are as strong as ever.  Turkish PKK, Iraqi  Peshmerga, and Syrian YPG fighters are the now cutting edge of a future Kurdistan.  Islamic State fighters are soldiers of Sunni destiny and defenders of the Kingdom of Allah.

Who will loose!  Can Turkey suffer the indignation of reverting to an Anatolian heartland to ponder its Empire’s final trumpet into history.  Will Iran, if stopped in its bid to reach the Mediterranean, turn east and with Pakistan swallow up a weak and failed Afghanistan.

The map is a vision, not a truth – not just yet!

EU Crisis: Junkers Commission Fuels Animosity with UK: New Power Struggle for Union Leadership

It would suit the commission to see the UK bolt for the exit.  After all, who wants competition to one’s plan!
Using fines and penalties against dissenting voices is a very European thing-simply because they are organised to make collections as a well-oiled machine.

or are they still poles apart. Junkers Commission rejects reform for an all
in call over supremacy and power.  image 2014
Most people in Europe believe that when fined or handed a bill it is only right to pay it even if they disagree with it. And some believe they are committing an offence if they don’t pay up. Rules are not the same as the Law.

This is the legacy of blindly following leaders who care little for individual dissention and everything for their authority.

Junker has made a massive miscalculation by opening his day-job role with a volley of confrontational financial moves against the UK and other member states.

This Brussels setup is now about telling national governments what to do and using the system to bring as much as possible to a centralised, politicised and ideological civil executive.  In short it is exactly what skeptics are worried about.

Whether or not the rules have been applied justly and accordingly is no longer a point of order for the British, Dutch, Irish, Swedish, Danish, French, Italian, Spanish or Greek public. This Brussels Federalist commission has firmly rejected any talks of reform and opted for an all in poker call it thinks it can either win or bluff. It is pitching its objectives against the will of the people.

“Lead public opinion, don’t follow it” is the latest Federalist mantra. In other words the people are not fit to think for themselves.  Eventually it will be the same assumption for some dissenting leaders. Where this takes us to, is clearly what the EU was created to avoid.

Brussels is not interested in the will of the people, but the people are interested in the will of Brussels.

The New Islamic Caliphate: The Road to Catastrophe is Littered with Good Intentions

It was long thought Western powers were playing referee in the middle-east to a proxy war between Saudi & Qatar against Iran, Russia and China, over whose pipeline will bring whose gas to the massive European market. Did we really care who won or supplied us with the goodies. Russia yesterday, Qatar today, Iran tomorrow! We oscillate like the wheat field in a breeze.

Russia, Iran and Qatar are the world’s no 123 in that order. We side with Saudi and Qatar in the proxy war and mostly ignore their public stoning and beheading of people convicted of crimes we find trivial normality. Like adultery or homosexuality. In the Arab world of retribution, public beheading is part of Sharia Law.

But then we also ignore how recent we were doing the same.  Europe’s record of beheading convicts stretches centuries up till until as recently as 1979 in France. Germany managed over 16,000 in the 1930’s alone albeit it being the work of the Nazi Party!   

Our blunders in Iraq created the climate for ISIS, Al Nusra, and the other off shoots to thrive and now, from a few dodgy dossiers we are faced with a mighty dodgy future.

Western allies have begun the standard process of demonising the enemy while assuring the public there will be no return to direct intervention. Everyone knows the Kurds and Shia militias cannot complete the job. And, is it fair of us to ask this sacrifice of them when so often we have let the down.

Some say military action can only hold the ring long enough for politicians to find a political solution. We are now way beyond this theory. We face the unstoppable rise of a new Muslim Empire stretching from India to the Mediterranean Sea. We helped create it; and all for a bucket of gas.

Heaven knows how mankind survives; because eventually it reaps what it sows.

The Great Scottish Debate #3. Reckoning, Appraisal and a Letter to a Friend

 A chara Sophia
Dea-shláinte a thabhairt duit agus an teaghlach

How are you in Stockholm this weekend...disappointed after the result. May I give you my report to make the yes camp feel a little better.

2 yrs. ago close observers including the SNP knew there were not enough votes to win the yes campaign. The fundamentals just weren't there.

These fundamentals are mainly generational, the younger generation having the spirit and courage to take Scotland to dizzy heights, while older citizens, like everywhere, preferring the devil you know - especially, if you’ve known him for 307 yrs.

performance at the Reconciliation conference in Dublin
Castle last week, 2 days before the referendum vote.  2014

Alex Salmond also knew that Westminster would cut up rough as would big business and the Banking moguls. Such bold moves for self-determination are for far flung places and not for the extension to the family home.

However Salmond was wise to test how far he could close the gap and how difficult it would be to take on the opposition. He needed this trial run before the next and final effort to win total unconditional independence in an environment acceptable to all.  Preparation for war is everything Sophia and most are won even before they are ever fought. (Sun Tzu, art of war)

What he did was to close the gap from 25% in May 2013 to 45% at end of play 2014...and fought the opposition to a standstill, sacrificing himself just like Mel Gibson did in Braveheart. Filmed in Ireland I might now add. 

This is a remarkable achievement and makes the man a living legend.

You see Sophia, for every NO voter that now becomes deceased, and that is about 60,000 per annum, a new YES voter will join the register. 

Given there is a shortfall of  300,000 to reach 50% means Salmond is just 5 yrs. away from this magic number and 10 yrs. away to reverse this referendum result into a 55% YES favour. Allowing for errors in these figures, the next vote is 15 - 17yrs from now.

So the UK has this time to fix the family house and build a Federal Union or a Commonwealth Confederacy, because, the nature of the UK and its central system is now broken. If they act Salmond’s independence movement is a chapter for the history books. If they fail then the banner to march will rise again.

So I hope you didn't cancel the victory breakfast, for it was a great tactical move worthy of any Highland charge against the Sassanachs 

Salmond may resign as first minister but as a lightning rod for the independence movement that shook the world; his place in history is secured. Who will remember Darling, Brown or Cameron.
