German Economic Imperialism - The Social Market


Fiscal Kommisar

More and more statements are coming from Germany, regarding the need for European states to give up sovereignty to a Fiscal Kommisar. What is this really about?

It is rooted in German theory of the Social Market Economy, and Ordoliberalism.

German economist Alfred Müller-Armack coined the term 'Social Market Economy' in 1946.
Müller-Armack was an influential economist and member of the NSDAP (Nazi) party from 1933-1945, and was known to be uncompromising of Nazi philosphy in his book "idea of ​​the state and economic order in the New Kingdom". With direct reference to Hitler's "Mein Kampf", Mueller Armack wrote of Nazi ideology that the German nation is "unified in feeling and thinking, by blood and by soil".

In 1932 Müller-Armack had called for a "clean separation" between industry and government, while a year later expressed pleasure in the fact that, in the idea of ​​the state and economic order of the new empire, "state power had finally become limitless". Müller-Armack and his colleagues certainly had an authoritarian understanding of the state.

Jerzy Miller refuses to comment on Smolensk air crash in the light of finding explosives on the plane wreckage
Jerzy Miller, who was the head of the committee investigating the Smolensk air crash, has decided not to comment on any news concerning the events taking place on 10th April 2010. When asked to comment on the information published by the "Rzeczpospolita" daily and concerning finding traces of explosives on the wreckage of the TU-154 plane, Jerzy Miller refused to say anything. "All the findings from our examinations are in the hands of the prosecutor's office so please ask the prosecutor's office about all that because...
Jaroslaw Kaczynski: "This is an incredible crime"
"Murdering 96 people, including the President of the Republic of Poland, is an incredible crime. Anyone who had anything to do with it will be punished for it," said Jaroslaw Kaczynski during today's session of the Parliamentary Smolensk committee. However, at the very beginning late President Lech Kaczynski's brother commented on the death of the technician of the Yak-40, Remigiusz Mus. "Warrant officer Mus's death is a very important event in the light of today's information. Mr Mus made a statement in the military...

President's address on the Czech National Day


Distinguished guests,
Ladies and gentlemen,
we have gathered here in these historical premises again to commemorate that the modern Czech state is one year older. Before long, a hundred years will pass from the establishment of our republic. Then we shall certainly ask the following questions:
- What has this – historically speaking – relatively brief episode, interrupted by the Nazi Protectorate and subsequently by our subjection to the Soviet Union, brought to our nation;
- And what have we who have lived in this era brought to our state.
For such questions to make sense, we must still have our republic at that time. This is, however, not self-evident. There is a great temptation, no longer hidden, to make use of the current problems for a radical centralisation of the continent and for further weakening of the sovereignty of historical European states, problems that would not have arisen in their current form without the ill-conceived introduction of the single European currency.

Address to the Members of the Diplomatic Corps on the Occasion of the Czech National Day


Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is a great pleasure for me and for my wife to welcome you here at the Prague Castle on the occasion of the Czech National Day. We are pleased and honored that also this year His Excellency, the Apostolic Nuncio, will speak to us on behalf of the diplomatic corps. Mr. Ambassador, you have been traditionally adding a spiritual dimension to this festive occasion.
Excellencies, this year, I am meeting you at this historic place as the President of the Czech Republic for the last time. It has been a privilege for me to address you and your predecessors on the occasion of the Czech National Day every year in the past ten years. As the President of the Czech Republic, I have many obligations and duties on this festive day, but the meeting with the heads of the diplomatic missions, who all presented credentials into my hands, belongs to the most important ones.
I believe that you see the Czech Republic as a reliable partner and a friendly country. During my presidential mandate my wife and I have traveled frequently in order to enhance the Czech Republic’s relations with the countries you represent – with our neighboring countries, with the EU member states, with our NATO allies and with our important partners in Asia, Africa and Latin America. I have been looking at each of your countries with full respect to the traditions and customs, to the historical and geopolitical realities, as well as to the constitutional and political arrangements.

Pourquoi l'échec de la droite ?

Pourquoi l'échec de la droite ? (1/2)

 Communication de J. Violette, à la XXVIIIe Université annuelle
du Club de l’Horloge, dont le thème général est
« L’union de la droite »
dimanche 21 octobre 2012
(Première partie)
Notre XXVIIIe université a pour thème l’union de la droite.
L’union de la droite découle d’une simple équation :
  • - la droite est majoritaire en voix dans notre pays, à la différence de 1981 : en 2012 le PS n'obtient que 16,5% des inscrits au premier tour des législatives quand l’UMP en obtient 22% et le FN 7% ; et F. Hollande n'a été élu en 2012 qu'avec 48,6% des voix des votants.
  • - mais la droite n'est désormais majoritaire qu'à la condition d'être plurielle, compte tenu du régime électoral actuel. La droite de gouvernement, quel que soit son sigle, ne peut plus gagner seule, comme l'a montré l'échec de la stratégie de recentrage idéologique et politique qu'elle mène depuis plus de 20 ans. Et la droite populiste, dont l'ancrage local est encore faible, ne peut pas gagner seule non plus. Et il est d’ailleurs dans la nature de la droite d'être plurielle, alors que la gauche est par vocation réductionniste, monolithique et intolérante.
  • - la seule alternative à l'union de la droite c'est donc, comme l’a montré 2012, la victoire durable de la gauche.
Tous les sondages montrent que les électeurs de droite sont favorables à une union de la droite. La recomposition de la droite est déjà dans les têtes, dans celles des électeurs de droite en tout cas. Elle est aussi dans la tête des abstentionnistes, qui sont devenus le premier parti de Francecar ils voudraient un vrai choix politique entre la gauche et la droite, qui n'existe plus aujourd'hui.
Ce sont les états-majors qui la refusent obstinément : soit parce qu’ils sont soumis au politiquement correct, soit parce qu’ils s’imaginent qu’ils peuvent gagner sans avoir d’alliés. Ce sont deux illusions mortelles pour la droite.
* * *
L'union de la droite suppose donc une rupture fondatrice, comme dans tous les grands tournants politiques. L'union ne s'impose pas naturellement, en effet, dans l'ordre politique, marqué au contraire par l'esprit de confrontation. Pour faire l'union, il faut donc sacrifier les conforts, les appétits et les susceptibilités. Il faut sacrifier la politique de l'instant au profit de la politique de l'histoire. Ce sacrifice-là est bien difficile aux politiciens !
La rupture doit d'abord être intellectuelle et morale : la droite de gouvernement doit avoir le courage de tuer le père, c'est-à-dire le politiquement correct et ses prophètes. C’est simple à faire : il suffit de préférer le verdict de l'électeur et des militants à celui des journalistes.

Bureaucrats of EU and Global Governance

By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh Saturday, October 27, 2012

The 27-nation European Union is hanging by a thread like a loose tooth. For months now, we have been warned weekly of impending doom and gloom if the euro is not saved, if Spain, Greece, and Italy are not bailed out by the European Central Bank and if France and Germany do not cooperate and agree to pay even more to the bankrupt southern EU membership who refuses to alter their generous socialist programs expenditures and the way they approach fiscal policy.

Separatist voices in the EU are getting stronger

The separatist voices in the EU are getting stronger. Catalonia wants independence from its own country; they are tired of paying the lion’s share of Madrid’s lavish expenditures. “When everybody was rich, nobody thought of how much it cost us to be part of Spain. But now everybody sees it,” said Oriol Pujol. This richness, of course, came to Spain in the form of easy money while the economic and construction boom took place before the 2008 housing crash. It seems that the producing citizens have a problem with this globalized economy and governance which depends on spreading the wealth.

"They Are Already In Place" - The Coming Attack

For the past 60 years, the Communist gang of criminals in Russia have been subverting and taking over country after country. They swallowed up entire nations during WWII that are still in their possession.

Over 50 years ago, a Russian defector warned America that the KGB had instituted an extreme long-range plan to brainwash the American citizens over a period of decades while simultaneously socializing their nation through their agents.

This plan included taking over the media, the prestigious educational institutions, and the cultural institutions.

Their plan to take over the United States was known as "ideological subversion and consisted of four stages. The stages were Demoralization, Destabilization, Crisis, and Normalization.

The KGB's funding and control of "terrorist" states is part of this long-range strategy. 9/11 was the first probe and the entire Russian military was prepared to follow up if the last plane succeeded in hitting the Pentagon or White House.

Nigel Farage - We Are Headed To A ‘One World Government’


In an incredibly powerful interview, today MEP (Member European Parliament) Nigel Farage told King World News, “They even want to get eurozone countries to change their constitutions, to write in their constitutions that they will obey all orders from Brussels.”   Farage also warned “So it is very, very difficult to ignore those voices who have been telling me for 20 years that behind all of this there are a group of people that want to create a one world government ... it’s beginning to stare us in the face.”

Farage also discussed gold, but first, here is what he had to say about the ongoing crisis:  “We’ve reached a point in this where, despite the massive economic the massive economic, political, and social problems that exist within the eurozone, and indeed an argument that the North and the South of Europe are diverging by the day, despite all of that, the political class have got so much the upper hand in Brussels, that, actually, they are moving to more and more extreme tactics.”

Nigel Farage continues:

Germany's hand in the separatist agenda

COMMENT:-   Please look at the two very interesting websites below.  BL..

 I have known Horst Teubert, the editor of this site, for over ten years and co-operated with him in translations etc. He is a conscientious journalist and a gentle, pacifist, left-of-centre sort of chap.
A Europe of bite-sized, digestible, indefensible, mini-states and regions has been on the German agenda since long before the post war EU project. 

See the history section on this site and the article headed "Nazi Regions" on


Mr Salmond, of course, will be fully aware of all this but keeping it under his bonnet as far as he can.
I have long suspected the higher leadership of the Conservative party of long term complicity and acquiescence in this agenda #

ever since it ceased to be "The Conservative & Unionist Party". 

I think this happened  in the early Nineties.

KATYN 2. Experts at International Conference confirm: the plane was blown up

Publication time: 23 October 2012, 15:31 

According to the Polish websiteNiezależna.pl, numerous experts confirmed at the International Conference on the Smolensk disaster held in Warsaw the findings of the Polish parliamentary commission investigating the plane crash.

Prof. Piotr Witakowski indicated that the plane crash had been accompanied by an explosion, and the plane crashed after it was blown up in the air.

According to Prof. Witakowski, the most likely hypothesis at the moment is an explosion in the air. Fragments of exploded plane fell on the ground.

Possible new Deal


Possible new Deal(photo warsaw beeper)
It is obvious for everyone really interested in Poland’s politics, that the Third Republic has reached its limits. It can not go any further. The situation is to some extent similar to that of 1989. One of the possible solutions is a kind of new Round Table talks .

Some people may remember that in the nineties the Gazeta Wyborcza daily, an ultra-fanatic pro-Third Republic newspaper, was the hegemon of the media market. It dictated not only fashions and styles, but also current politics. A single note in the last page could have lead to a dismissal of minister or head of important office. Its position deteriorated in the next decade, but it still retained some power. Now it is only a shadow of its former shape, a tragic-comic specter that haunts some parts of Poland. It is still poisonous and dangerous, but its range of fire is limited. Instead of ministers nowadays it annoys random and not so important people. Let us just give one example – on Monday November 22nd it nabbed one teacher from a remote village who said during the lesson that divorce is harmful for children (according to Gazeta Wyborcza divorce is of course a positive fact, totally harmless). It made a big scandal of this and tried to get the teacher persecuted for such statement.

Central Banks Game Plan: One World Currency

Only those in total denial would claim that the world economies could grow their way out of the debt bubble. Mathematically, the rules of compound interest always destroy the purchasing value of fiat currencies. The era of zero interest rates will end. When the cost to finance debts reverts to normal levels, the bleeding will become a gusher. The world reserve currency status of Federal Reserve Notes will come under enormous pressure. As the central banks consolidate their control over international commerce and the economies of individual countries, the coin of the new realm will shift to a replacement for the U.S. Dollar.

There is no current replacement for the Dollar among existing world currencies. In order to substitute the role that the Dollar plays in trade a new measure of transactions would need to become acceptable to settle trade transactions. A mere substitution with some form of a basket of currencies or the inclusion of gold, does not resolve the enormous overhang of debt obligations needed to redeem all the Dollars that float around the world. The de facto use of Dollars within foreign borders to conduct business supersedes the local legal tender laws that many countries model after those imposed domestically on American citizens.

The Federal State - A Loss-Making Business (II)


(Own report) - Driven by the Euro crisis and the German austerity dictate, secessionist aspirations in the Spanish province of Catalonia are becoming accentuated. Following a major demonstration demanding the founding of a sovereign nation, the region's parliament and prime minister have announced intentions to table a referendum on secession in the course of the next legislative period. New - pre-term - elections have been scheduled for late November. According to Barcelona, the break with Spain must come, even if it means violating prevailing law. Catalan separatists have been receiving German support for a long time. The German Green Party is in the same European Parliamentary caucus as the secessionist parties. Their umbrella organization has published maps in which the majority of European nations have been broken up into smaller entities - including a nation Catalonia. According to their map, Germany had annexed Austria, the German-speaking region of Switzerland and several other territories. Cooperation with Catalonia as the "Partner Nation" in 2007, at the prestigious Frankfurt Book Fair, provided the separatists with an appreciable boost. German federal state Baden Wuerttemberg's special cooperation with Catalonia provides economic support for its secessionist efforts - and points to Europe's breakup into an economically successful core and poverty-stricken, hopeless marginalized zones, just as has crystallized under Euro zone pressure.

If you are happy with how the world works and like to think that everything that you have learned throughout your life is truth, this article is probably not for you. It is probably best that you stop reading this article because you will most likely be offended. However, if you want to free your mind and find answers to why the world is such a mess, it would be a good idea to continue reading. On the other hand, if you are a truth seeker, a person who seeks for the truth with little fear of the unknown, then this article should be of great interest to you.
Mainstream media in the U.S. and most European countries usually contain roughly 25 percent truths and 75 percent distorted information and lies. The percentage of truths and lies will vary depending on the subject that is being covered. As for the media in other countries, the truths and lies will vary depending on how control their countries are.
Most people in the U.S. do not realize that their mainstream media outlets are owned and controlled by only six corporations. Below are two paragraphs extracted from TheEconomicCollapseBlog.com.



Steve I know that it has been awhile since I have posted any alerts in your site. This is because things are getting critical mass in the financial markets. I want all of your audience to understand and think in the understanding that all real trades have STOPPED. All the real money is moved out, the Euro has failed and now begins the death and freefall of the dollar.

The main reason for the Euro failure is this: the Euro was created with the sole intent to become an instrument of not only seizure of sovereignty but seizure of all assets and infrastructure. What do I mean by this? Simple, there are untapped oil, natural gas, and mineral resources in Europe waiting to be exhumed by the multi national corporations, funded by the banksters, and controlled by the elites. In order for this smash and grab to be successful look for the following to occur:

MEP Farage: 'We are Europeans, and proud of it'

EurActiv Logo

Britain's 40 years in the EU have been of great shame and sadness, but the British are European and proud of it, British MEP Nigel Farage told EurActiv Germany.
Nigel Farage, an MEP for Southeast England, co-chairs the eurosceptic Europe of Freedom and Democracy group in the European Parliament. Farage spoke to EurActiv Germany's Mimoza Troni.
The United Kingdom is approaching 40 years of EU membership. Is this occasion something you are going to celebrate or just remember or even regret?
It is an occasion of great shame and sadness, but it is a time, after 40 years of EU rule, when no aspect of life in our country can be said to have been untainted by the influence of the EU and its agents in Britain.
Some say that the UK's membership in the EU was motivated by the desire of the British to ‘control’ what the Europeans do and also by the Common Market. What is your opinion?

In the past, Hajek, a close aide of Klaus, drew the media attention by challenging the existence of Osama bin Laden, branding homosexuals "our deviant fellow citizens" and dimissing Darwin´s theory with a resolute assertion that he by no means descends from an ape.

The former TVP and TVN correspondent in the USA, Mariusz Max Kolonko, speaks in a fierce way about the way the Russians are carrying out the Smolensk investigation and reveals the scenario according to which Donald Tusk is supposed to be the contemporary copy of king Poniatowski.

In an interview for the Onet.pl portal Mariusz Max Kolonko recalls the way the American and world information agencies gave information about the Smolensk air crash and the course of the investigation. He admits that apart from the very information about the air crash the Americans hardly know anything about it because all the agencies used information provided by the ITAR-TASS and not by the Polish agencies because the investigation was being carried out by the Russians and their information was present in the world agencies and news.

"As a result the majority of the Americans do not have a clue that e.g. the flight recorders and the wreckage of the plane have so far not been returned to Poland - 2 years and 6 months after the air crash and 2 years after the end of the investigation," explains Mariusz Max Kolonko in an interview for the Onet.pl portal.

The economic motives behind the attacks on Hungary

Date de publication: 2012-05-14

"The Economic Motives Behind the Attacks on Hungary" 
by Professor Magdolna Csath

Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, I am an economist teaching at the Janos Kodolanyi University of Applied Science.  I would need about an hour to summarise the situation in Hungary and the conflicts between my country and the EU.  Let me start with a very important idea which was sold to the Hungarian population in 2004 when Hungary joined the EU.  The people were told that the most important thing about joining the EU, apart from joining a "club with European values", was that the people would be able to expand economically into the rest of Europe.  "Any Hungarian will be able to open a café in Vienna", we were told. 

The Hungarian population realised very quickly that the so-called European values are very far from the traditional Hungarian values: they were based on business interests.  In addition, I have never met a single Hungarian who has been able to open a coffee shop in Vienna as promised.  Instead, it has been the other way around.  Hungarian properties have been acquired by businesses from the core countries in the EU - France, Germany, etc. It is this which explains the conflict today with the new Orban government.  The government is trying to return to traditional values, which are in the new constitution, and it is also trying to build a new Hungarian economy.  The government is attempting to raise some taxes from the transnational companies and banks and they are also trying to gain some control over some foreign businesses active in Hungary.

Smolensk photo leak

KATYN 2. Photos of mutilated Putin's victims were placed on Internet by anti-Putinist FSB agent

Publication time: 18 October 2012, 01:08
As preserved in the cache of the Russian search machine Yandex, the photos of corpses of the Poles, including the then Polish president Lech Kaczynski who had been killed on Putin's order by the Russian FSB (KGB), were placed on Internet by dissident anti-Putinist FSB agent Tania Karatsouba Seid-Burkhan who hates Putin. Ms. Karatsouba is a proxy of FSB general colonel whom she calls Fydor Ivanovich. As an introduction to her anti-Putin's article, Ms. Karatsouba writes about herself:

"My name is Karatsouba Seid-Burkhan. I am descendant of Genghiz Khan, and Tsars, or Khans, of the Golden Horde (my real name is Burkhan). My family is also a claimant to the Russian throne.

Starting from 1998, I have been editor-in-chief and founder of politics and law magazine "President. Parliament. Government". In 1998, I received the degree of Candidate of Sciences at the Chair of Akmeology and Psychology at the Academy of Civil Service attached to the President of the Russian Federation. In 2002, I graduated from the Chair of National Security at the Academy of Civil Service attached to the President of the Russian Federation".

The cache of Yadex also revealed that the blog of Ms. Burkhan with the Russian social network, containing photos of mutilated corpses of 96 representatives of the Polish elite, was closed by the Russian FSB the same day, September 28, 2012, as the Polshevist affiliate of the FSB, Polish secret police ABW (Agencja Bezpieczenstwa Wewnetrznego, Internal Security Agency), noticed the photos on her blog and complained to their FSB masters in Moscow, although the Moscow Center had nothing against the photos glorifying the heroic deed of the FSB men "Smolensk 2010" against the Polish enemies of Mother Russia.

The Europhiles still don’t get it

"We Brits have a choice: to remain tethered to the Titanic as the ship goes down.  Or to take a deep breath, and break free," writes UKIP MEP Roger Helmer

 Last night I attended an event in Brussels sponsored by Volvo — and was disappointed to be reminded that Volvo sold their cars division to Ford ten years ago, and are now a truck business.  Indeed they claim to be the world’s second largest truck business, having absorbed France’s Renault trucks, the USA’s Mack trucks and some other businesses.

I recalled that Ford had bought both Volvo and Jaguar cars at about the same time and — let’s be honest — made a bit of a pig’s ear of them.  Ford’s ambition was to create a luxury cars division along the lines of Toyota’s Lexus.  So it didn’t help when they tarted up a Cortina and called it a Jaguar X-Type.  It never caught on.  Ford gave up, and sold Jaguar to India’s Tata (who are doing a fantastic job with it), and Volvo cars to Chinese car-maker Geely.

It was good to hear about the trucks — but it was an unrelated conversation at the dinner table that caught my attention.

KATYN 2. American expert confirms some Poles survived in Russian terrorist attack

Publication time: 15 October 2012, 01:32

A Polish portal W Politice reported on new developments around the Russian terrorist attack near Smolensk on 10 April 2010. It writes:

Prof. Kazimierz Nowaczyk, expert of the Polish Parliamentary Group investigating the causes of the Tu-154M crash, made a presentation in the Palladium Hall in Warsaw. The presentation was also attended by the chairman of the group, MP Antoni Macierewicz.

After the presentation, the professor responded to questions from the audience.

Asked whether passengers some passengers could survive in the crash, Prof. Nowaczyk, citing the words by Dr. Szuladzinski, said:

 - It is highly unlikely that all of them died. As for the explosion, it is another matter. It depends on what resources were used, we need to know the course of events, because it is not only the explosion, which occurred at a certain height, but there is also another matter - a delay of assistance which may be intentional (it was a politcorrectness, all the people present knew perfectly well that the survived Poles were killed by a hit team of the KGB (FSB), but it is impossible to speak about it openly at a System's conference held by a System's parliamentary party - KC).

Asked about the satellite images of the fragments of the aircraft from the United States, he said:

The theory behind the EU is simply wrong

By John Bolton, Ottawa Citizen October 15, 2012

News that the European Union won the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize undoubtedly gladdened the hearts of global governance advocates everywhere. Although the idea of universal government has appeared in many formulations over the years, most contemporary approaches use the EU as a model for where the march toward “one world” will ultimately end. After all if “global problems require global solutions,” the continent-wide EU strikes many as a paradigm for the entire planet. A cornerstone of the EU’s founding justification, and the underlying rationale for granting it the peace prize, was that European economic and political integration would quell the troublesome forces of nationalism that have been the basic, enduring cause of war around the world.

On the other hand, given today’s parlous state of affairs in the EU, especially for those nations using the euro as their common currency, the future isn’t looking all that attractive. In fact, Norway’s peace prize committee was manifestly trying to throw the EU a lifeline, once again demonstrating just how politicized its decisions have become in recent decades. The eurozone is in crisis; economic growth has stalled; Greeks and Spaniards are rioting and protesting German hegemonism; and the war on terror continues unabated while the EU largely stands on the sidelines. In the traditionally euro-skeptic United Kingdom, public pressure for fundamental changes in Britain’s relationship with the EU is rising, and even in Germany, heartland of European integrationist sentiment, fellow feeling for those ungrateful Mediterranean countries is steadily declining.


Absolute Power arises from failure

The euphemistically named European Stability Mechanism has just been set up and is taking huge amounts of taxpayers money from the countries in the Euro-zone in order to rescue the governments of the Euro-zone destroyed by the Euro-zone. Each member within the Euro, regardless of how bankrupt they are, must contribute to the paid up capital of 700 billion Euros. The rules then permit billions of Euros of borrowing on top of that - all guaranteed of course by the taxpayers of the countries it claims it is rescuing.

When countries in the Euro can't afford to cough up more money (which on present form will happen quickly) then they lose their voting rights and the remaining countries get more voting power. Imagine the outcry if we told the unemployed they had lost the right to vote! The national constitutions of Euro-zone states requiring funds will be permanently suspended so that all financial, economic and budget decisions will be taken by the ESM, out of any control by national electorates. As Angela Merkel said:

The debt brakes will be binding and valid for ever. Never will you be able to change them through a parliamentary majority

The last sentence applies of course to the whole of the Euro "project" given the abject surrender of democratic sovereignty by national politicians - but it has rarely been spelt out so graphically. The ESM staff get privileges normally reserved for diplomats and full immunity for anything they do while working for the company. They are exempt from income tax (the ESM will itself tax its employees and keep the money).

The ESM also gets to audit itself, having a quaint idea that "independent auditors" "must be approved by the ESM's Board of Governors". The ESM will also be beyond the reach of any outside regulation, supervision or legal structures. After all these privileges (and the high salaries which undoubtedly accompany them) these great "bankers" will leave all the negotiating of the conditions of the loans made by the ESM to - the European Commission! Not bad work if you can get it.

But all the financing in the world cannot alter the basic problem of the Eurozone . It will not work because the bankrupt countries cannot recover economically, therefore cannot repay their debts and therefore will continue to collapse becoming (on top of being totally uncompetitive within a single currency) financially insolvent. They have no currency to find its correct level. They have no interest rates which might reflect their domestic reality. They cannot prevent capital flight because it is against EU rules. They cannot make their own social laws to suit their economy because the EU makes them centrally. Instead they are trapped, as William Hague said, in a burning house with no exit.

The only question is will this latest centralized, power crazed Euro-institution work economically? No. Will it be tolerated politically? No - nothing new there then, but this time the EU elite may not get away with it. There is only so much economic destitution, social revolution and political chaos the EU Commission and the BBC can cover up and only so much constitutional democratic loss hidden from voters and we are now well beyond that point. The denoument for the Euro-political class approaches.

The successful launch on October 12 now enables engineers to run intensive tests on every aspect of Galileo from its ground operation centers in Munich, Germany, and Fucino, Italy, and “clear the way for rapid full-scale deployment of the constellation” of the remaining operational satellites, according the European Space Agency’s director of the Galileo program, Didier Faivre.
The operational satellites following this validation phase will be launched every three months beginning next spring until 18 of them are orbiting space. At that point—projected to be late 2014—the system would have reached the Initial Operational Capability stage, ready for initial use. Full Operational Capability, nonetheless, will be reached with 12 additional satellites by 2018.
Galileo will be 10 times more accurate than GPS. It will have civilian and commercial uses, as well as military applications. But as the Register wrote, “Galileo only makes sense in the context of European military action and infrastructure security, independent of the U.S.”
In 2007, then European Commission Vice President Antonio Tajani admonished, “We must commit very strongly to Galileo. We need this; this not entertainment. This is necessary for the competitiveness of our European Union in the world.”
Galileo is Europe’s challenge to U.S. monopoly and military dominance of its GPS. It is another significant step for Europe as it lurches toward full independence from the U.S. and superpower status.

Nobel Peace Prize to EU grotesque

Letter to the Nobel Peace Prize Committee.

Sirs -

Norway’s award of the Nobel Peace Prize to the EU was grotesque.  It was a gratuitous and totally avoidable insult to millions in the Balkans, and to NATO.

What short memories you have.

You had obviously forgotten – or chosen to forget – the most powerful reason why the EU should not have received the Nobel peace prize.

The Balkan wars started when Croatia declared itself independent in June 1991.  Croatia’s old ally, 

Germany, unilaterally recognised Croatia and then pressured the EU to do the same.

Despite vigorous international pressure not to do so, the EU caved in to German coercion and recognised Croatia as an independent country, outside the Yugoslav Federation.

To nobody’s great surprise, Serbia objected to Croatia’s independence and supported the Federal Yugoslav Army (JNA) in resisting it.  By September 1991, the tension had escalated into war.

The EU’s feeble decision had triggered a chain of events that devastated the Balkans for nearly a decade.  It was the worst conflict in Europe in 50 years and caused the deaths and homelessness of hundreds of thousands.  Peace it was not.

Indeed, restoration of Balkan peace under the so-called ‘European Peace Force’ had to await the arrival of US forces acting under the auspices of NATO (to which France remained semi-detached).

The Norwegians responsible for this award should tell us why they chose to forget the EU’s role in the Balkans when they decided to give this year’s peace prize to the EU.

They have brought shame on themselves, on Norway and on the Nobel tradition.

Satellite photos from the day of Smolensk air crash have been classified
Satellite photos from Smolensk, taken on 10th April 2010, were given to the Polish intelligence services by the NATO just after the air crash. In the documents which the "Gazeta Polska Codziennie" daily got hold of this is confirmed by, among others, the Intelligence Agency. At the same time, the military prosecutor's office, which is carrying out the investigation, has classified the photos to such an extent that it even refuses to admit if it has them at all.
Shocking photos of Smolensk victims' bodies come from the MAK
According to what the Niezalezna.pl portal has established, the photos of the Smolensk victims' bodies published on the Internet by an alleged blogger come from the evidence collected by the Russian MAK.
