French MPs are against war in Syria

On April 13 a number of French parliamentarians wrote a letter to the President Emmanuel Macron. They expressed disagreement with the participation of the French Armed Forces in striking Syria on April 12 together with the United Kingdom and the United States. The deputies believe that there was no evidence of the use of chemical weapons by government forces of Syria. And also, such actions jeopardize national security.
There are some excerpts from this document:
“Your predecessor, President Jacques René Chirac, went down in history by expressing some doubts on accuracy of information about the development of weapons of mass destruction and refused to take part in the destroying of Iraq. By these actions he helped France to avoid responsibility for the catastrophes that followed after the attack: millions of dead, the disappearance of Christian minorities and Yezidi, the birth of ISIL.
The destruction of the Libyan state after Franco-British intervention, motivated by false information about the bombing of civilians in Benghazi, led to similar catastrophes …
Mr. President, we ask you to present the Parliament and the French citizens the evidence of a governmental chemical attack that affected several square kilometers.
If France joins the war against Syria, it is necessary to understand that you are putting our country and our Armed Forces in danger…”.
The members of Parliament Gérard Bait and Jacques Myard, the former minister François Guillaume, the general Dominique Delawarde, the adviser on international affairs colonel Alain Corvez, the former deputy Nicolas Dhuicq, the deputy Jérôme Lambert, the colonel Jacques Hogard signed this letter.
I wonder if Macron will provide real evidence or there is nothing to present? And whose side will he choose: Jacques Chirac or Nicolas Sarkozy?
This situation confirms that there is no common opinion on the situation in Syria in European society, even within one country.
And the desire to solve this issue by force is not typical for all participants of the EU and NATO.

#Germany dictates its rules in the #EU

The other day the German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen proposed to abandon the unanimous decision-making procedure in the EU Council. Von der Leyen said that this principle makes it easy to achieve its goals for those who want to make an outside splitting in the EU, and the transition to a majority vote on foreign policy issues will instantly respond to crises and speak with one European voice.
Let me remind you that the current system allows any member country of the bloc to block the adoption of joint decisions. Apparently, this is the concern of the German government, which in the absence of the outgoing British bloc intends to lead not only in European economy and finance, but also in foreign policy. It is not difficult to guess that France will support Germany in the matter of voting. After all, the change in the voting procedure is dictated by the desire of the EU leaders to take control of the EU’s foreign policy, which, in their opinion, should not become a victim of the whims of small countries.
A simple majority – it is for this and it is necessary that no one, no matter how high in his country he climbs, would not break away from the European collective. But here you can see both favorable and negative consequences. Let’s say Poland wants to collect reparations from the Germans for World War II … Already wants, but so far she is alone. And if it hits the whole of Eastern Europe, then others will also catch up. And then what will Berlin do with this majority ?!
And although in recent times Europe has not been able to take a single unanimous decision on major foreign policy issues, Germany is trying to improve the situation through a qualified majority. I think this will not improve the situation in any way, but will only lead to the collapse of the European Union. After all, the EU member states will now take decisions against Berlin’s wishes. And in general, small Baltic countries and Poland are unlikely to agree to surrender their sovereignty and renounce the right of veto …

Macron doesn’t want to run only France

Probably everyone has already noticed that after coming to power in France Macron determined to extend his political influence throughout all Europe. His ambitious plans are to create a European super-state under his own leadership.
Emmanuel Macron has already begun to plan to exercise control over the European Parliament and create a common political space for the European Union. If this plan of the French president works, then the European Union will come close to becoming a ‘United States of Europe’, actually governed from Paris – despite the fact that no one elected Macron as the head of the European Union.
But it is very interesting what is the point of Macron or is someone else behind that? Let’s figure it out.
First of all, France needs money for their ambitious economic programs. And Macron has offered many times the following the scheme: the European Union issues debt instruments, then all of the EU countries respond to them according to their possibilities, and those EU countries that have more needs use them. In fact, this scheme assumes that German, Italian and Spanish taxpayers will pay for fulfilling the promises given by Macron to French voters. It is not surprising that Merkel strongly opposed it, and therefore, to solve the problem, she will be forced to agree with the Macron’s plan for the plundering of Germany. Moreover, due to recent events, Merkel has ceased to be perceived as a leading politician in the EU. And instead of her the French president with the support of the political forces that want to make ‘the United States of Europe’ from the EU seeks to take the reins of government.
The American agency Bloomberg writes that Macron is not content with France alone, he is preparing to challenge the whole of Europe, but notes that the task of conquering Europe is not simple. People started to compare Macron to Napoleon and predict great problems for him in the implementation of his plans.
The fact is that in order to gain control over the structures of the European Union, the French leader needs control over the European Parliament, which, in turn, will give him a serious lever of influence on the European Commission – the structure that plays the role of the EU government. In addition, Macron himself does not want to leave his presidential post, and for this he needs to change the political system of the EU. Because neither the president nor the prime minister of a European country can simultaneously control the all-European authorities.
So far, he has a chance to implement his plans. He has already enlisted the support of representatives of the En Marche party, who are seeking in all EU countries candidates willing to support Macron in the European elections. Moreover, they are waiting for support from the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe, a transnational alliance of liberal parties supporting the globalization and centralization of the European Union and having its own group in the European Parliament. And if this coalition is large enough, then the French president will become even closer to radical reforms in the European Union and control over the pan-European budget and foreign policy.
And everything seems so good, but this plan to expand its political influence to the whole of Europe has several problems. First of all, it’s money. Macron is a former high-ranking Rothschild banker, and he has serious connections in financial circles and very large material resources. However, mass buying and promotion of candidates and European deputies will require huge sums. An even more important problem is the resistance of the political elites of those EU countries that will lose all their political and economic influence. The Austrian, Hungarian, Italian and other national elites will greatly impede the Macron’s candidates, and in case of real danger of the EU federalization, the withdrawal from the union of specific countries may come on the agenda.
Secondly, I’ve already wrote that these plans of Napoleon-Macron do not coincide with the plans of the German political elite. The European Union does not need an ambitious banker with Napoleon’s habits, which means that the new German government will seek and will certainly find the necessary political and administrative levers to suppress Macro attempts to put the European Parliament under its control. The only way to avoid a tough Franco-German confrontation, which is quite capable of destroying the European Union, is the achievement of some sort of compromise between Berlin and Paris. In general, it is still difficult to say whether the French leader will succeed or Europe will win the forces advocating the preservation of national states in their current form. But all these actions of Macron, which, of course, can lead to the collapse of the European Union, are very frightening and it is necessary to take some steps. Until it’s not too late…

EU policy can lead to the collapse of the whole system or why the EU needs the countries of the Western Balkans?

The European Union, concerned by the crises, decided to take an unexpected step – the integration of the Western Balkans. The EU seeks to complete the unification of Europe by 2025 through the integration of six states: Serbia, Montenegro, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia and Kosovo. The president of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker made such a statement the other day. Although the official website of the European Commission refers only to the real EU accession of Montenegro and Serbia, if they comply with all the requirements for EU membership.
It is still unclear why Brussels is dragging into the EU countries that are not completely ready and economically backward?!
The European Commission believes that the integration of the Western Balkans into the EU meets the political and economic interests of the European Union. And the idea of ​​constant expansion is laid down in the EU philosophy. But I would like to recall that to join the European Union new countries need unanimous support of all its members, some of them seriously doubt that the EU will benefit from this integration of poor and troubled Balkan countries. As the EU has got enough troubles already… And earlier the dictatorship of Brussels, Berlin and Paris dominated in the Union, now it is increasingly failing. In Eastern and Central Europe, there were “dissident countries” led by Hungary and Poland, who can say “no.” The Czech Republic and Slovakia also clearly will not want to sit in Brussels next to representatives of Albania or Kosovo. In the Balkan countries, there have always been and now there are internal conflicts, as a result of which there may be a conflict already within the EU.
In addition, after the expansion of the Balkan countries, the funds, whose task is to redistribute funds in order to equalize the economies of the backward members, will be seriously reduced. As a result, there will be a decrease in revenues due to the withdrawal of Britain, and a change in the structure of the cost. The rich countries of the European Union, such as Germany, France, the Netherlands or Sweden, will now have to pay even more contributions to the EU overall budget, from which the EU structural funds spent on economic development of poorer EU countries like Romania, Hungary or Lithuania. And what will happen to the EU economy if even poorer countries join it?! I think that it will just collapse. After all, rich countries clearly do not like this situation.
The implementation of the large-scale project, drafted by Juncker, together with additional transformations, suggests that by 2025 the European Union will again claim the role of one of political centers of the world. Nevertheless, taking into account corruption, criminality and the state of the market economy of the Western Balkan countries, they will definitely not be ready to join the Union by 2025. As a result, this project is unlikely to materialize. Still I would like to see Europe strong and safe!
In conclusion, I would like to say that the integration of the Balkan countries into the European Union will now simply lead to the collapse of the EU. The fact is that the situation in Europe is so sad … The European Union is already on the verge of collapse. And the accession of such backward and ruined countries will simply accelerate its disintegration. It is believed that the EU is a bastion of well-being, but it turns out that lately only economically backward, corrupt and poor countries are trying to get it.

Amnesty International: actions of guarantors of democracy have led to the destruction of respect for the human rights

“As we enter the year in which the Universal Declaration of Human Rights turns 70, it is abundantly clear that none of us can take our human rights for granted.”
SALIL SHETTY, SECRETARY GENERAL

The international human rights organization Amnesty International published an annual report on the state of the human rights in the world in 2017 on February 22, 2018. Human rights activists stated that 2017 demonstrated the destruction of the system of human rights protection. And this is not surprising. Since for the first time in a long time serious problems in this sphere have appeared in those countries that have always called themselves guarantors of democracy and legality: the USA, Australia and Western European countries.
According to the organization, the policy of President Donald Trump has a great impact on human rights. “Trump moved from the illegal rhetoric of discrimination and xenophobia into concrete actions threatening a major rollback on justice and freedom”. The efforts of US President Donald Trump to ban entry to all citizens of several Muslim-majority countries based on their nationality was a transparently hateful move. Among other American problems, human rights activists noted attacks on the press, disregard for women’s rights, attempts to deprive millions of people of access to health care. In addition, the United States continued frequent attacks using firearms, and death sentences continue to be carried out. We may recall public statements by representatives of the administration of Donald Trump in support of torture of terror suspects.
The main problem of 2017 was the migration crisis. This is confirmed by the terrible situation of refugees in Libya. In addition, this issue was actively used for pre-election purposes in various European countries. In Austria, France, Germany and the Netherlands, some candidates sought to transpose social and economic anxieties into fear and blame, especially against migrants, refugees and religious minorities.
A vivid example of society’s hatred of minorities was the monstrous military campaign of ethnic cleansing against the Rohingya people in Myanmar. Almost 700 thousand people were forced to leave the country, fleeing violence and murder. It was the fastest-growing refugee crisis of 2017.
In Ukraine, the organization noted further regress in respect of human rights. The main reason for the opinion of human rights activists: the pressure from the authorities and ultra-right groups to criticize the government, journalists and non-profit organizations.
The growth of hatred has also affected Russia, where we witnessed a monstrous campaign of kidnapping, torturing and killing gays in Chechnya. According to human rights activists, another serious problem is the situation of Crimean Tatar activists. The report says that any disagreement with the position of the Crimean authorities is suppressed, people are arrested, fined, and their homes are searched.
Unfortunately, the organization also pointed to a number of violations in my native Spain. Amnesty International noted that the rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly of Catalan independence supporters were disproportionally restricted. Dozens of people were prosecuted for “glorification of terrorism” and “humiliation of victims” on social media. Spain relocated fewer asylum-seekers than it had pledged to under the EU relocation scheme, and resettled fewer refugees than it had committed to.
Taking into account all the above-mentioned serious problems, we should also mention remarkable achievements in the struggle for human rights that were achieved in 2017. For example, in Chile, a complete ban on abortion was lifted, Taiwan came close to recognizing same-sex marriages, in Angola, the law restricting the activities of NGOs was abolished, and residents of the Nigeria achieved a landmark victory in the fight against forced evictions.
The greatest surprise and rejection is the deterioration of the human rights situation in the United States. With the current leadership, the US gradually ceases to be guarantors of democratic rights and freedoms of its own citizens. So in the very near future Washington will lose the moral right to advise its partners how they need to act in the development of democracy. I hope that this year will enable the guarantors of democracy and legality to confirm their commitment to the idea of ​​human rights and change their attitude to this problem.

2018 is a difficult year for the #EU

By the end of 2017, we can say that the EU had a tendency to disintegrate. And it’s not connected only with Brexit and the Catalan crisis in Spain.
First of all, the stability of the internal political situation is again under threat in the so-called “motor” of the EU – Germany, where during four months the talks on the government coalition following the results of the September elections to the Bundestag first renewed, but then again failed. And although in early 2018 the CDU / CSU and SPD started a new round of negotiations, it is still designated “deadline”, April 1. But the problem is that according to public opinion polls, a new vote between Christian Democrats and Social Democrats will lead to the same impasse as in September. After all, it was this “big coalition” that rules in Germany for two of the three terms of Angela Merkel as federal chancellor. But in 2017, the Social Democrats rested and refused to cooperate with the CDU / CSU. And now they changed their minds again.
At the same time, it is easy to see behind these vicissitudes the same split of the Western elites and their internal struggles. After all, Europe is still fundamentally not sovereign and is the actual sphere of influence of the United States, which exercises control through the institutions of NATO, and the Council of Europe.
Secondly, Emmanuel Macron, came to power in the spring of 2017 in France, changed the emphasis in the most European policy and perspective. Economic leadership of Germany, especially in the conditions of constant instability in this country, threatens to transform into a military one. And go to France as the only European nuclear power. In addition, because of numerous ambiguities in politics, Merkel’s position, openly played by influential conceptual and business circles related to the Rothschild clan, whose promoter is Macron, is rapidly and sharply weakened.
Let us remember the events in Catalonia – a part of this scenario, discovered by George Soros in his time around the Eurobond project: then it was said that Germany either should consolidate and assume all European debts, or dissolve the EU. It is indicative that recent studies by German defense ministry experts have revealed that in three of the six scenarios for the development of the situation in the EU there is no “common future” for Europe, and it will collapse.
Although, in turn, the Catalan precedent has clearly shown that the global oligarchy headed by the Rothschilds is not against a single Europe, but for expanding its own control over integration processes.
In the beginning of the year, Brussels has to resolve a number of internal political issues, including the migration problem, which France and several countries of Eastern and Central Europe have already tightened control over. Even Germany, which willingly welcomed refugees and helped them, is concerned about the possibility that because of the new rules for granting asylum in the European Union, Germany had to accept many more migrants. And that is why he asks the EU to stop this mass flow of refugees.
In addition, the problem of Brexit is quite acute. Despite the fact that the EU and the UK were able to agree in the first phase of the negotiations, they are now moving to the second phase, within which they will have to resolve the problem of regulating the border between the remaining part of the European Union, Ireland and the part of the United Kingdom, Northern Ireland, the status of three with a small million foreign professionals who currently live and work in the British territory.
And we can say that at the moment the European Union is clearly facing a political, social and economic crisis. It has to overcome a very difficult year, because this year will determine its future. As a result, the EU’s exit from the current crisis is one of the biggest issues facing the union, its citizens, institutions, leaders and politicians.

 

#German plan of the #destruction of #Europe

Good evening, my dear readers! I continue the theme of national minorities and regionalisms in Europe.
The modern situation in Europe makes us believe that modern European elites are capable of leading only to a destructive process, to the “real Europe of regions”. Such aspirations exist in many structures of the European Union, including the European Commission. Thus, a number of EU acts promote the implementation of such principles as the development of regionalism and the protection of ethnic, linguistic and religious minorities. Among them are the European Charter of Regional Languages, the European Convention on the Protection of the Rights of Minorities, the European Charter on Local and Regional Autonomy, as well as the Madrid Charter on transregional cooperation, which is designed to facilitate the way out of regions from the power of national governments with their subsequent accession to adjacent regions neighboring states under the supervision of the EU. This policy is supported by European countries, whose goal is the abolition of existing national states with the creation of “Europe of regions” that will allow them to assert their own hegemony on the European continent.
In my articles, I have written many times that George Soros, the famous American billionaire, may be one of the stakeholders in creating unrest in Europe and, in particular, holding a referendum in Catalonia. In addition, there is evidence that the European Commission, together with the Soros Institute, has created a structure that works to promote local specificities and ethnic characteristics – the “Platform for Enriching the Cultural and Ethnic Diversity of Europe”. Its activities are heavily influenced by Anglo-American influence through the International Group for Minority Rights, headquartered in London and the US-based Ethnic Relations Project, headquartered in Princeton. Behind these there are the US State Department and well-known globalist organizations – the Carnegie Endowment, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the Marshall Fund, and others.
But I want to note that “German interest” is the most obvious in the creation of the “Europe of regions”. After all, Germany is one of the most influential countries in Europe. Moreover, for a long time Germany has offered to Europe its concept of policy. For example, Germany is promoting through the EU a whole stream of organizations such as the Federal Union of European Ethnic Communities (UFCE-FUEV), the European Center for Minority Issues (ECMI) or the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages (ECRML), approved by the Council of Europe and the OSCE, whose goal is the effective disintegration of European states. Similarly, the legal recognition of regionalist federalism by European institutions is reflected in such documents as the “Charter of Local and Regional Autonomy” or the framework agreement on cross-border cooperation known as the “Madrid Charter”.
And the consequences of this activity of the Germans are already obvious: the collapse of the former Yugoslavia, the continuing division of Belgium, the destruction of Spain through separatist sentiments in Catalonia. And if the current trend continues, the separation of the provincial regions of France can become a reality (it is already known that a referendum on independence will be held in Caledonia in 2018), the implementation of the “League of the North” project in Italy, autonomy with ” Celtic” territories of Great Britain.
To all of the above, I can add that the policy of the anti-immigration party “AfD” in Germany can also become a disaster that will destroy Europe.
Thus, the movement for minority autonomy has strong support, and it can be argued that under these conditions the process of fragmentation of European states into ethnoregions, well managed and coordinated, will continue, causing instability, local conflicts, and, if necessary, chaos.
I think that it is impossible to allow German and American provocateurs to establish their own order in Europe, which in the future can lead to the dismemberment of the EU.

The collapse of #Europe: the ideas of #separatism prevail

Good afternoon, dear readers! In the Old World, the ideas of seperatism are increasing day by day. For most people, Europe is associated with integrity and well-being. However, that is not quite true. After all, thousands of residents of this most “prosperous” Europe are willing to re-examine the borders of their states, or at least get more autonomy.
A striking example is Catalonia, which fights so fiercely for its independence. I believe that Catalan separatism is not just a struggle for national independence, but the struggle for the possibility of direct subordination of Catalonia to the bureaucrats of Brussels without mediators of Madrid, they want “more Europe and less Madrid.” Most likely, it can even be called a separation from the European Commission. It’s no coincidence that the main advocate of strengthening the European Commission’s influence and dismantling European nation states, George Soros, finances two Catalan organizations that play a key role in the struggle for Catalan pseudo-independence. And I’ve already written about this in my article. I think the Catalan example was contagious for territories like Italy and France not for a reason.
Just recently, on October 22, the referendums in Italy, in Veneto and Lombardy, were held. Although it was not a question of complete separation of the regions, only the vote for getting more autonomy. In turn, 95% of the interviewed supported the idea of ​​autonomy. I think that this famous American oligarch was also involved here. In addition, France is likely be the next in his list.
So, a few days ago it became known that New Caledonia (France), intended to hold a referendum on secession and gaining sovereignty in 2018. I want to note that the separation can seriously hit the archipelago, since the association with France, one of the central European countries, is access to high technologies and the most advanced developments in the field of economics. Moreover, the archipelago produces nickel, and still there are deposits of manganese, cobalt, chromium and other ores.
That’s right, Americans are quietly shaking Europe, causing another burst of separatism. And the European Union, meanwhile, stayed away from these events. Apparently, the EU doesn’t defend longer basic political and human rights.
Apparently, the restraint of the European Union and its members is due to the fact that frozen problems with individual regions exist in many countries. In the same Belgium, the richer region of Flanders declared many times the desire to get more autonomy, and its radical political wing – even complete independence. I think, in view of the ongoing government crises, to start the process of “divorce” in Belgium, it will be enough to help the former Catalan leader, Carles Puigdemont, who fled there in late October, at the end of the separation process, as they immediately begin to pursue their policy on independence.
There are many questions in this field even in Poland – where the residents of Silesia want to get more autonomy. While they are only asking for national recognition and some autonomy, it is not known how they will behave if they are not be heard …
I think that the problem of separatism in the world is largely “fueled” by the double standards of the countries of the West (where some are fighting for independence and others are trying to prevent it), as well as contradictions that are hiding in the basic documents of the UN. In order to stop fierce political battles throughout the world, I believe it is time for members of the United Nations to begin negotiating what is meant by the “right to self-determination” and “territorial integrity” and how to reconcile each other these two conflicting principles. The formulating rules of the game in this matter will make the whole world calmer. Otherwise, these American billionaires will take advantage of this “parade of sovereignties” and adjust themselves to disunited European countries and newly formed regions.
