UKIP's glory in the UK is the start of a global revolution


UKIP has changed the face of politics in Britain with its historic victory at home in the European elections. But it's so much bigger than that. All across the democratic world a revolution is underway. To mainstream media and politics: You ain't seen nothing yet

Tidal-waveThe tectonic plates have moved. And that thing, that gigantic wave, that you see on the horizon is not a bad weather event, whatever the establishment may have pursuaded itself to believe. It is a historic shift. It's coming right at you. It's got momentum. And there's nothing you can do to stop it.

That's the take-home message from the European election results to politically interested people from Washington to Beijing.

The Empire of Lies, Part II:
The Lie at the Foundation of Today’s Right


Commentary for 26 May 2014

You might wonder why the Soviet Union and the Communist International never thought of infiltrating the American Right. But then, what if they did? In fact, they must have done so, because the Communists always infiltrate and subvert their enemies, and the American Right is the heart of the capitalist camp. So it is inconceivable that they did not infiltrate the Right; and that means they are here, right now, in our midst (because the Communists never really went away, despite what happened from 1989-90). This last point is not to be made in polite society, and few are well-informed enough to know something of its validity. For 99 out of 100 persons, it is preferable to believe a lie. As a former British MP once said within my hearing; “Reagan and Thatcher saved the West from socialism.” But a former Russian GRU colonel, sitting across the table, whispered in my ear, “But America is the Marxist paradise.”
 
In the Empire of Lies conservatism has become an outlaying province, long ago colonized by the enemy. And the proof is not far to find. The “conservative” Kissinger went to China, then the “conservative” Nixon went to China, and the “conservative” Reagan traded with China, and now China has destroyed our exports, and our industry, and now our currency. And the conservatives called this “free trade.” They quoted Milton Friedman.  But here, on this small blog, we know the Cold War never ended and Milton Friedman was wrong. We know that China was engaged in a strategy about which Deng Xiaoping said “the capitalists know nothing.” And we may testify, if no one else dares, that the “conservatives” helped the Communists in China and Russia more than anyone else. And if the world thinks we are crazy for saying this, we may reply that the world itself is mad. Meanwhile, there has not been one article I know of about Communist infiltration of the Right. Neither has anyone spoken publicly on this subject. It is a non-subject, about which silence speaks volumes.

CETTE EUROPE DONT NOUS NE VOULONS PAS ! par Pieter KERSTENS

 FPI-Le Gaulois

E
n 2005, pour que les peuples puissent exprimer leur opinion, les ténors politiques avaient soumis à référendum une Constitution pour l’Europe, compilation de nombreux traités signés entre les États avant Maastricht, mais surtout depuis 1992 (Amsterdam et Nice) et fruit des synthèses obtenues par l’ex-Président français Valéry Giscard d’Estaing au sein d’une Commission spécialement dédiée à ce projet.

Contrairement aux citoyens des 14 autres pays, les belges ont été privés de ce référendum, car jugé « dangereux » et « inopportun » par MM Reyders, Di Ruppo, Steyvaert et Sommers, éminences aux manettes du plat pays.

Europe's centre crumbles as Socialists immolate themselves on altar of EMU


Francois Hollande must be willing to rock the European Project to its foundations, and even to risk a rupture of the euro. This he cannot bring himself to do 

Comments833 Comments
 
By a horrible twist of fate, Europe's political Left has become the enforcer of reactionary economic policies. The great socialist parties of the post-war era have been trapped by the corrosive dynamics of monetary union, apologists for mass unemployment and a 1930s deflationary regime that subtly favour the interests of elites. 
 
One by one, they are paying the price. The Dutch Labour Party that fathered the "Polder Model" and ran Holland for half a century has lost its bastions of Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Utrecht, its support dwindling to 10pc as it meekly ratifies austerity policies that have led to debt deflation and left 25pc of mortgages in negative equity.

Set Britain free from the European Union



Gerard Batten
Member of The European Parliament for London

Personal Declaration
Set Britain free from the European Union

The UK Independence Party does not recognise the legitimacy of the European ‘parliament’ to legislate over the British people. UKIP uses the European parliamentary elections and the taking up of seats in the European ‘parliament’ purely to further the cause of the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union.

I was a founder member of the UK Independence Party in 1993. I was elected to the European Parliament in 2004, re-elected in 2009, and stood for a third term in 2014.

As a member fo the European Parliament for London I use that position to campaign for Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union, and a return to Britain’s former status as an independent, self-governing, democratic nation.

The purpose of this Personal Declaration is to state the basis on which I contest the European parliamentary elections of May 2014, and on which I will serve the electorate of London as an MEP.

Is Pope Bergoglio a Psychopath?


A Reflection from a Master in Psychology


TIA,

From a psychological perspective, Pope Francis shows all the signs of being a first rate psychopath. There is mounting credible evidence that he is a divisive character who exhibits little regard for the truth. He seems to be particularly adept at dissembling, causing much confusion, and further destroying the truth in the hearts of the faithful. He also seems to be not too shy in using either his charm or his fist to achieve his purposes, to get what he wants, without sufficient regard for the consequences of his words and actions for the faithful, not to mention the rest of the world.

Being the Pope is the perfect position for a psychopath, because it is nearly impossible to get fired. If Pope Francis is one, unfortunately, it would not be the first time we have encountered this personality type in the Church in these last days. A few intelligent ones manage to slip in, undetected. Once in, they are very difficult to get rid of, unless they commit some crime like abusing children. And even then...

The highly intelligent ones know how to mask their sickness, their lack of a conscience, and blend in. They commit no obvious crimes (or at least they hide them very well). They know how to appear normal, to act virtuous, etc., their fruit, whether early or late, is always bad, always destructive.

L’Europe c’est la paix ? Non c’est la guerre de Sécession qui vient

 

Pour Michel Geoffroy les Européens n’auront bientôt plus le choix qu’entre être  otages ou rebelles. L’Union européenne est loin d’être un facteur de paix. C’est au contraire la menace d’une guerre de sécession qui plane sur les peuples européens. Un texte à lire à quelques jours des élections européennes du 25 mai 2014.


A l’approche des élections européennes toute l’oligarchie bruxelloise et politicienne répète sur l’air des lampions « l’Europe c’est la paix », sans doute pour tenter de retenir un électorat européen de plus en plus réticent. On ne pourrait qu’en rire si le sujet n’était pas si grave.


Les mouches du coche


En rire d’abord, parce que l’Union Européenne n’est en rien responsable du fait que l’Europe occidentale n’ait pas connu de conflit armé sur son sol depuis 1945. Si nous avons connu la paix (si l’on excepte les guerres de décolonisation bien sûr) on le doit avant tout à l’équilibre de la terreur qui a définitivement gelé la guerre froide après la présidence Khrouchtchev. L’Union Européenne qui n’a mis en place ni défense autonome, ni Europe de l’armement, ni diplomatie digne de ce nom n’a aucune responsabilité dans cette situation.

EU Commissioner José Barroso: “The Treaty of Rome Was Signed on Blank Sheet”. EU Founded on Biggest Political Deceit in History


The Treaty of Rome was written on a blank sheet to enable Jean Monnet and his CIA/Council on Foreign Relations friends (see below) to put anything they might want into it along the road, since the heads of state and government disagreed at the time of signature. But no matter what they might put into it, the signers were caught, forced to accept it !! The following clown tales are reports on the biggest political deceit in history and the incredible lack of efficieny and competence of the EC/EU – long before the Constitution/Lisbon Treaty deceit, thus showing a basic deceitful feature of the EU..
marie-heleneThe BBC wrote an appalling report on 23.March 2007: From the beginning (the 6 signers to the Treaty of Rome) struck a tone that dogs the European project to this day: they worked largely in secret (Marie-Helene (right) and the others had to sign contracts which banned them from talking about their work, even to their families).
There was little reference to public opinion; the political elites laboured on in splendid isolation. The treaty – still being argued over and translated into four languages until the last minute – was not printed. The six went ahead with the ceremony anyway. The print shop sent six copies of the title page, and the last, or signature page, but in between these two the entire text of the treaty was missing.
 
The six heads of government put their signatures to a blank document.
The point of the locomotive is ... ever closer union.

The Empire of Lies, Part I

Commentary for 19 May 2014
I conducted three interviews in recent days about the struggle for freedom in Ukraine, Venezuela and Romania. From writer and political analyst Sammy Eppel, I learned how the Communists are coping with powerful opposition forces in Venezuela. I also spoke, once again, with Ukrainian activist Boris Chykulay who updated me on events in Ukraine and offered his analysis; and I interviewed Anca-Marie Cernea, who was kind enough to explain the Ukraine crisis as seen from Romania – a country which struggles, even now, to break its old Communist shackles.
But first, before offering choice bits from these interviews, I would like to touch upon the anti-Ukrainian and anti-American propaganda put out by the Russian media. The lies which flood the Russian air waves are beyond anything we have seen in recent years. Russian television viewers are exposed to a mind-bending barrage of distortions which are effectively preparing the country for war. As a recent article on the Economist.com has pointed out, “Russians have been subjected to an intense, aggressive and blunt disinformation campaign in which they were bombarded by images of violence, chaos and fascism in Ukraine, sinister plotting by the West and evidence of Russia’s strength and nobility in response.” Since these words were written Russian broadcasts have grown even coarser and more routine. It is worth remembering, as well, how Kremlin media czar Dmitry Kiselyov, on Russian TV Channel 1, spoke of why Obama’s hair might turn gray after phoning President Putin. “Russia is the only country in the world that really can turn the USA into radioactive ash,” said Kiselyov. Such braggadocio coupled with sly allusions to Obama’s weakness, does indeed suggest that Russia’s intention is to invade Eastern Ukraine. Why else would such nonsense appear on Russian TV? The need for public support in any aggressive military confrontation is well understood in the Kremlin, and fully appreciated by the Russian generals.

« Malaise de l’Occident/ Vers une révolution conservatrice ? » de Paul-François Paoli.



« Autrement dit, le vrai clivage n’est plus tant entre droite et gauche, même si celui-ci persiste, qu’entre conservatisme et libéralisme. »

 

♦ Paul-François Paoli, qui est chroniqueur au Figaro littéraire et auteur de nombreux essais, vient de publier un livre intitulé « Malaise de l’Occident/ Vers une révolution conservatrice ? » aux éditions Pierre-Guillaume de Roux.




Conservatisme et libéralisme


L’ouvrage de Paul-François Paoli est consacré à l’opposition entre conservatisme et libéralisme qui est désormais l’opposition centrale du débat philosophico-politique contemporain ; la pseudo-opposition entre droite et gauche n’est que l’élément essentiel de la démocratie parodique et spectaculaire orchestrée par l’oligarchie : « Autrement dit, le vrai clivage n’est plus tant entre droite et gauche, même si celui-ci persiste, qu’entre conservatisme et libéralisme ».

Le libéralisme est fondamentalement et radicalement individualiste et, de ce fait, mondialiste, universaliste, hostile à tous les enracinements et favorable au nomadisme. Il admet l’égoïsme (depuis Mandeville), le désengagement à l’égard de toute forme de communauté (les libéraux nient même la société : « There is nothing such as a society », disait la Dame de fer !) et favorise le développement du narcissisme. L’obsession individualiste conduit à la négation de tous les déterminismes, qu’ils soient naturels, culturels ou historiques, et génère le fantasme de l’auto-engendrement de soi.

Crisis of Legitimacy

german-foreign-policy.com
2014/05/05 ODESSA/BERLIN

(Own report) - The unprecedented disinformation campaign being waged by the leading German media has reached a new climax with its reporting on the murder of more than 40 people in Odessa. In the Ukrainian metropolis of a million inhabitants, the Trade Union House "caught fire" - "a catastrophe," whose cause is still unknown. This is how it was reported immediately following the fire, on May 2. Even though supporters of the putschists in Kiev could be seen hurling Molotov cocktails at those barricaded inside the Trade Union House on international press agency photos, key German media organs chose to publish the Ukrainian intelligence services' falsified bulletins claiming that "Moscow" was responsible for the crimes. Those murdered were among a group of demonstrators calling for regional autonomy. They had fled their attackers and were chased into the Trade Union House, blocked inside and left to a gruesome death by suffocation.
Even though the context can long since be reconstructed, the "Tagesschau" evening news cast still described the scene in deliberately vague terms 24 hours later. For example, on May 3, at 20:15 the incident in Odessa was described in the First German Television Network (ARD): "The Trade Union House caught fire."[1] This formulation sounds like a technical defect, while avoiding linking the incident to an abundance of news material from international agencies. That "unidentified persons" may have set the fire is all that was admitted, claiming ignorance of the surrounding circumstances.

L’Europe sans les peuples : petite histoire d’un grand hold-up

L'OBSERVATOIRE DE L'EUROPE

Comment les Européens ont-ils pu basculer, sans bruit, sans violence et presque sans s’en apercevoir, dans un régime antidémocratique ? Comment ont-ils pu laisser leurs gouvernements renoncer progressivement à ce qui leur était le plus cher : leurs libertés, à commencer par celle de choisir souverainement leur destin, ainsi que leurs communautés nationales ? Cette préservation des souverainetés était une condition impérieuse de la paix : l’Histoire nous enseigne que les démocraties modernes ne se font jamais la guerre entre elles. À l’heure où la dette publique, la pauvreté, la crise d’identité et la défiance populaire atteignent une ampleur historique sur le continent, la question de l’avenir démocratique de l’Europe paraît d’autant plus cruciale. Tels sont les enjeux en train de se nouer derrière les accélérations fédérales en cours, depuis le déploiement des effets du traité de Lisbonne jusqu’aux nouvelles bases juridiques d’une gouvernance disciplinée de la zone euro.
Christophe Beaudouin, docteur en droit aborde ces questions sans tabou dans son ouvrage "La démocratie à l'épreuve de l'intégration européenne" (LGDJ, 2014) et dans le numéro de mai 2014 du mensuel "La Nef" consacré intitulé "Quelle l'Europe ?"


Jean Monnet, "l'Inspirateur"
Jean Monnet, "l'Inspirateur"

par Christophe Beaudouin*

Sur la page « gouvernance européenne » de son site, la Commission avoue sans ambages qu’il s’agit d’une « forme dite postmoderne des organisations économiques et politiques » où il serait désormais possible de « gouverner sans gouvernement ». Est-ce à dire que nous aurions basculé dans le « despotisme doux » annoncé par Tocqueville et repris par Jacques Delors ? Cette Europe intégrée laisse voir bien davantage qu’une simple crise d’adolescence : défaut structurel de légitimité des institutions de l’Union, technicisation extrême du pouvoir, confusion des fonctions exécutives, législatives et judiciaires, contrôles parlementaires national ou européen impraticables, responsabilité politique inconsistante, absence de culture politique européenne et donc d’espace de débat public transnational, perméabilité manifeste aux influences privées mondialisées. Comment en sommes-nous arrivés là ?

Ideology vs. Truth


Commentary for 12 May 2014

There is a tendency, especially today, to reduce all political analysis to an ideological formula, and to judge everything according to this formula. Such a reduction is usually erroneous, even dangerous, when applied to a complicated world. It is, of course, easier to simplify everything in order to make it more comprehensible. But the world does not become simpler when we ideologically simplify. We become simpler – to the point of stupidity.

Most people ideologically simplify because they are distracted and have no time for political studies, or historical studies, so they adopt an ideological template. This allows them to quickly categorize all political phenomena into two categories: (1) that which agrees with their own ideological template; (2) and that which disagrees with their own ideological template. Here is a corrupt practice which says that if something disagrees with the adopted political ideology, it is wrong or evil. If it agrees, it is right and proper. In other words, under the auspices of ideological simplification we do not judge honestly. We judge by the yardstick of ideology, without fully realizing that ideology is not reality.  

It is axiomatic, today, that everyone has an ideology. Even the denial of ideology is taken to be an ideology. People conceive of themselves as belonging to the Right or the Left. This division is further broken down into factions or sects. Someone recently asked what my political beliefs are. My answer is covered in the next few paragraphs.

Strategic Possibilities and Dialectical Games

 

Commentary for 5 May 2014

NATO membership for Ukraine means death for Russia.
                                             - Alexander Prokhanov

In the first stages of Zyuganov’s creation of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (not without some participation on my part, as well as Prokhanov…), efforts were made to interpret and conceptually appraise the presence of the national component in the Soviet worldview (National Bolshevism), but this initiative was abandoned by the leadership of the [Communist Party], which had occupied itself with some other matters…. However, on the level of rhetoric and first reactions, Russian Communists in all senses present themselves as confirmed national conservatives – sometimes even as ‘Orthodox Monarchists.’”
                                             - Alexander Dugin, The Fourth Political Theory

Alexander Dugin, quoted above, is not an ideologist. He is a strategist. Before delving into what strategy is, or can be, let us first consider the situation in Ukraine. Either Russian troops will drive into Ukrainian territory after 9 May, or Russia will rely on secret agents within the Ukrainian government to re-establish (or maintain) indirect control of the country. This latter strategy, if successful, could give Moscow a fresh avenue for making mischief within the EU. The fact that Russian clandestine structures are already embedded throughout Europe is hardly acknowledged or fully appreciated by expert opinion. Europe’s energy dependence on Russia is acknowledged, of course, but this is trivial in comparison. 

Is There Any Reason to Celebrate Our First 10 Years in the EU?


Many thanks for the invitation. I almost don’t remember when I spoke here, in Budapest, last time in a private capacity, not being on a formal state visit.

It may be partly a personal problem because I entered politics in the moment of the Czechoslovak-Hungarian dispute about Gabčíkovo-Nagyamaros Danube dam project and I dared interpreting it as one of the conflicts between green ideology and rational thinking which was not very popular in Hungary at that time. In addition to it, there has always been a sort of competition between the Czech and the Hungarian concept of post-communist transformation – and together with it – a missing mutual understanding of our specific approaches.

It may also be non-personal because the Czechs were always – for understandable reasons – on the side of Slovaks in all kinds of Slovak-Hungarian disputes and because the Czechs looked with evident doubts and reservations on the Hungarian attempts to revive the almost century old debate about the Trianon treaty. We have always seen it differently. And there has also been a natural rivalry between the Czech Republic and Hungary about their role and position in Central European politics.

On the other hand, we have had similar views on Europe and on the European integration process. When I was here on my farewell state visit in December 2012, my talks with Hungarian political leaders showed me quite convincingly that our views on the EU are very close.
