It is the EU, not Donald Trump, that threatens to undermine NATO and the security of the West. An EU defence union will present a direct threat to NATO, competing for funds, building in duplication and confusion, and setting up rival military structures.
“You can’t say the past doesn’t matter, the values we share don’t matter, but instead try to get as much money out of NATO as possible and whether I can get a good deal out of it.” — German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen.
This is breath-taking hypocrisy from the defence minister of Germany, which spends less than 1.2% of GDP on defence against an agreed NATO minimum target of 2%, while freeloading off the America’s 73% contribution to NATO’s overall defence spending.
European leaders would do well to recognize that they need the US more than the US needs them, and that real, concrete, committed defence from the world’s greatest military power is more beneficial to them than a fantasy army that will have plenty of flags, headquarters and generals but no teeth.
Trump should also prioritize both practical and moral support to anti-Islamist regimes in the Middle East, such as Sisi’s Egypt.
Rather than spreading fear and false propaganda about Donald Trump, they should be praying that he will provide the strength that is so desperately needed today, and working out how best they can support rather than attack him….. [read more]
NATO has been forced to step up its plans to deploy thousands more troops to the Russian border as Vladimir Putin increases the country’s war preparations. The global alliance will use its meeting with European Union officials to launch an aggressive push to implement troops in Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
An agreement – signed at a Nato summit in Warsaw in July – will see 3,000 to 4,000 soldiers stationed close to the Russian border in case Moscow launches all out war. The US will lead the mission in Poland with Britain leading the way in Estonia, while Germany, Canada and France will also contribute troops…. [read more]
BRITAIN has sent tanks, drones and 800 soldiers to the Russian border as tensions with Vladimir Putin intensify by the hour. The show of force comes just days after the Russian leader’s fleet passed near the British coast. British soldiers will travel to Estonia in what is one of the biggest build-ups of foreign firepower on Russia’s border since the Cold War. The move will take place next spring, with Denmark and France also taking part in the huge military exercise…. [read more]
THE European Union cannot rely on NATO to protect its member states from external threats and must develop a policy of collective defence that allows it to “act autonomously if and when necessary”
According to a new foreign policy document from the Brussels-based institution to be handed to EU leaders next week, a “credible European defence” is also essential to preserve good relations with the US.
EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini’s Global Strategy document states that “as Europeans we must take greater responsibility for our security”. EU army plans: Union pushes for new security strategy, European army as option
No surprise here, the new EU army will be formed largely from German and French soldiers…. [read more]
EUROPEAN political chiefs in Germany and France are to take advantage of Brexit by unveiling their long-held plan to morph the continent’s countries into one GIANT SUPERSTATE, it has emerged today.
“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 1:9 (KJV)
The very first world war global humanity ever saw was World War I which started on July 28, 1914. The two main culprits were Austria-Hungary and Germany. World War II started on September 1, 1939, when Germany invaded Poland. Now a full century later we see Europe’s most powerful nation, Germany, calling for the creation of a militarized, single State of Europe. This would be Hitler’s Germania, but on a much larger scale. The third time’s the charm?…. [read more]

Yesterday the British people stood up for their freedom. Today the world is a different place.
Celebrities and politicians swarmed television studios to plead with voters to stay in the EU. Anyone who wanted to leave was a fascist. Economists warned of total collapse if Britain left the European Union. Alarmist broadcasts threatened that every family would lose thousands of pounds a year if Brexit won.
Even Obama came out to warn Brits of the economic consequences of leaving behind the EU.
Every propaganda gimmick was rolled out. Brexit was dismissed, mocked and ridiculed. It was for lunatics and madmen. Anyone who voted to leave the benevolent bosom of the European Union was an ignorant xenophobe who had no place in the modern world. And that turned out to be most of Britain.
While Londonistan, that post-British city of high financial stakes and low Muslim mobs, voted by a landslide to remain, a decisive majority of the English voted to wave goodbye to the EU. 67% of Tower Hamlets, the Islamic stronghold, voted to stay in the EU. But to no avail. The will of the people prevailed….. [read more]
Yesterday, June 23, 2016 will be remembered as the day that the world struck down globalist progressive bureaucrats and said NO to open immigration.
Yesterday morning, a tie vote in the Supreme Court blocked Barack Obama’s amnesty plan.
Last night, Britain voted for freedom from the oppressive beast called the European Union.
Today, early stock market futures are in turmoil, gold is rising, the 10 year treasury is now below 1.5%, the 10 year Japanese bond yield is minus o.215% and the British pound plummeted to a 31 year low.
Today U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron, who campaigned for the remain vote, announced his intention to resign by October.
Here is what we don’t know:
How the wounded beast of globalism will fight back
How many other countries in the EU will follow Britain
Will Brussels find a new super president to stabilize the chaos
When global markets will calm down
Here is what we know for sure:
In a highly charged and emotional time it is best to avoid quick financial decisions
Over the next days/weeks the political and financial landscapes are likely to settle down
Outrage is growing on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean following a massive new leak of the proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), a globalist “trade” agreement negotiated between the Obama administration and the European Union. The leaked documents are being used, properly in some cases, to portray the treaty as a giant handout to Big Business cronies. Just as importantly, the almost 250 pages of text also confirm once again that the controversial new “trade” regime aims to merge the regulatory regimes of the United States and the EU under unaccountable transnational institutions. In short, the threats to liberty, privacy, self-government, and national sovereignty are very real. But critics are fighting back.
With public support for the scheme collapsing and the new revelations sparking fury across the political spectrum, some analysts are actually heralding the death of TTIP. Top politicians, business leaders, and media outlets across Europe are suggesting that the end may be near for the unpopular pseudo-free trade agreement. However, despite the statements of some government leaders, without an even more massive outcry in the United States, the TTIP is unlikely to die a peaceful death anytime soon. Instead, globalists will continue working to impose their anti-sovereignty agenda on the world, just with more regulations to placate the controlled opposition from the Left that demands more environmental, consumer, and labor “protections.” Everybody agrees that chances for the scheme to come to fruition are better while Obama occupies the White House….
