Italy: Soros is involved in the migration crisis of Europe

It is not the first time we hear that it was the US billionaire George Soros is involved in creating a migration crisis in Europe.

And nowadays, this crisis has reached such proportions that the Italian authorities have decided to strengthen external borders to reduce the flow of illegal migrants from Africa to Italy and the EU.
So, the other day the Italian Minister of the Interior, Matteo Salvini, suggested that George Soros was involved in creating migration chaos in Europe, in particular in Italy.

According to him, the US billionaire “supports non-governmental organizations dealing with the delivery of illegal migrants from Libyan territorial waters to Italy, and wants to turn Italy and the rest of Europe into a refugee camp. Because he likes slaves”.

Let me remind you that earlier the Hungarian government also accused the American business magnate of Hungarian origin of the desire to “flood” Europe with refugees.
Unfortunately, the financing of the migration crisis in the EU continues. Today in the countries of Africa there is an extremely unstable situation, and the US billionaire will try to cynically use it as a further impetus to increase the migration flow to the countries of the European Union and Italy, in particular.

By 2050, it is expected that the population of African countries will exceed 2.5 billion, and most of these people will live in slums. That means that the number of refugees in the EU countries will only increase … and if the states do not take radical measures, all these actions of George Soros will only lead to the collapse of the European Union.

 Obviously, the topic of migration is one of the main problems of Europe, and apparently, one of those that is very far from a solution …

Who should take refugees in Europe?

The number of illegal refugees seeking to enter the EU countries is growing every day, but, unfortunately, the number of EU countries refusing to accept migrants is growing with it. Let me remind you that the new Minister of the Interior of Italy Matteo Salvini refused to accept the vessel with illegal migrants (629 people), thus provoking a violent reaction to the EU. Fortunately, two days later Spain decided to accept these people on board in Valencia.
Europe is going through the most serious migration crisis, caused by a number of armed conflicts and economic problems in the countries of Africa and the Middle East. And so far, one of the main problems remains unresolved: Who should save and host the migrants who have suffered the disaster?
It turns out that according to the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, the captains of vessels should assist people at risk at sea. But what should happen after people are saved, and how this should be solved from a legal point of view, is not clearly stated in the document. So, no country is obliged to give permission to land on its shore to people on board a vessel that has been wrecked.
Most likely, Salvini’s decision will give a new impetus to the reform of the European asylum system. One of the compromise solutions may be an agreement to show solidarity with countries along the borders of the EU and share a burden of responsibility with Italy, Greece or Bulgaria. But how this will happen, the EU member states themselves must decide. In 2016, the European Commission has already made a number of proposals. So far none of them have been realized …
I hope that this time Europe will still be able to find a compromise – and right-wing populists who came to power in some EU countries will not be able to prevent it. After all, even the Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who opposes the adoption of refugees by Europe, agreed to consider financial support.
While the EU countries are discussing the adoption and distribution of refugees, migrants are changing their usual routes. And nowadays the popular place is Spain. Here in recent months there has been an increased flow of migrants trying to get to Europe via the Mediterranean. In this situation, the proposal of the Spanish government to take in Valencia people who are aboard the vessel MS Aquarius was a nice gesture. But not all are going to follow the example of Spain.
I think that many are concerned about the decision of the Italian authorities on Aquarius. Since they clearly run counter to international norms and risk creating a dangerous situation for all countries. Therefore, it is time to regulate the standards for granting asylum and to ensure that all EU countries take part in this.

 

Why Macron keeps quiet?

The crisis in Italy entered into a new phase after the President Mattarella said that the appointment of Professor of Economics, Paolo Savona, as Minister of Economy and Finance could be a blow to Italy’s public debt. In this regard, one of the largest and most important countries of the European Union remains without government, and the political crisis there is only aggravated.
The Italian crisis is one of the problems that the European Union has already faced: the US withdrawal from the Treaty on the Iranian nuclear program, Brexit, migrants, the complicated relationship between Madrid and Catalonia. The situation for Brussels is getting worse every day. And everyone understands it, except for Ms. Merkel, German politicians and journalists who are playing their game. An article published in “Der Spiegel” by German journalist Jan Fleischhauer who calls the Italians parasites, is another confirmation of it. The Germans and the French do not take Italy seriously for 20-30 years. This is a big mistake.
And now you should turn to the French, who dream and strike to greatness. If Berlin has an opinion on all these situations and does not hesitate to express this opinion, then why does Paris keep silence. After coming to power a year ago, Emmanuel Macron missed many opportunities to become a significant European, or maybe world power. He could mediate in Brexit negotiations, Merkel’s failure in the parliamentary elections opened up new prospects for him, the crisis between Barcelona and Madrid could be the impetus for seeking a balance between sovereignty, democracy and Europe. Now he misses a new chance, which gives him a political crisis in Italy!
Simply monitor the Internet and you will be convinced of the absence of serious statements and actions to overcome these European crises from the French president. As a rule, he acts as a financial inspector, trying to maintain the viability of the ECB system without any drastic changes.
Is it worth reminding that the proposals about transformations in the eurozone, sounded from Macron a year and a half, are now finally buried? Will the current president of France have the power to do something after the final recognition of the failure of his reform of the eurozone? Has he not yet realized that Germany does not respond to his proposals? Can he take the risk of talking one-on-one with Germany, which is still strong enough and confident?
All these questions can be answered only by Emmanuel Macron himself and his deeds!

The situation in Italy as a new cause for concern in the EU

On May 27, an attempt to form a coalition government in Italy consisting of the populist and anti-system Five Star Movement and the right-wing League ended in failure. The President of the Italian Republic and the coalition failed to agree on the candidature of Minister of Economy and Finance. Sergio Mattarella announced that he would never agree with the appointment of Minister of Finance, Paolo Savona, an eurosceptic and opponent of Italy’s participation in the eurozone.
So, who is Paolo Savona, whose figure led to the collapse of the new government? – He is Professor of Economics, worked in the Central Bank and in the largest employers’ organizations in Italy, he was in the councils of many large companies and banks. The 81-year-old politician had political experience: he was Minister of Industry and Head of the Department of Public Policy. But over the years, Savona’s views became more rigid. The candidate for Minister of Finance, proposed by anti-system parties, is not only a strong critic of the euro, but also a convinced nationalist and opponent of Germany’s policy. The media published often his statements, and in one of his scientific works he claimed that “Chancellor Angela Merkel managed to realize – though peacefully – Hitler’s plan for German hegemony in Europe”.
And since earlier Mr. Mattarella has repeatedly said about the inviolability of the European parameters for the future of Italy, he does not agree to see in the most important public posts people who lead the country in a different direction. It turns out that the prospect of forming an Italian cabinet of ministers has rested on the figure of the 81-year-old possible minister. And in whose favor this problem is resolved, it has not yet known. In any case, it is not good for the integrity of the European Union.
The process of forming the Italian Cabinet is being watched very carefully in Brussels. Because this situation can lead to another crisis in the eurozone. Let me remind you that the amount of Italy’s public debt is 130% of GDP – after Greece it is the second largest public debt among the EU countries. However, Italy ranked first among the EU debtors, given that it is the third largest economy in the eurozone.
And given the upcoming exit of Britain from the European Union (Brexit), the discontent of Poland and Hungary with the EU migration policy, the withdrawal of Washington from the Iranian nuclear deal, the trade wars with the USA, new sanctions and energy security issues, the current situation in Italy will add problems to Brussels. In addition, on May 29, at the peak of the Italian political crisis, the Project Syndicate published Soros’s comments on the possible collapse of the European Union. It may have been his doing, creating chaos in Italy. Therefore, it is quite possible that soon Rome will say “ciao” to Europe, as London has recently done…

#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.

#Berlusconi would act differently on the #independence of #Catalonia

Good evening everyone! The leader of “Forza Italia”, the former head of the Italian government, Silvio Berlusconi, does not agree with the position of the country’s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy. The solution to the situation, according to Berlusconi, is the support of a “legally controlled” referendum that would help resolve this situation.
He said it after the meeting of the European People’s Party (ERP) in Brussels.
According to Berlusconi, he would not send the officers of the Civil Guard to Catalonia to prevent the voting of its residents.
The social organization Human Rights Watch, together with the experts, concluded that the members of the Civil Guard were subjected to unfair force against the referendum participants, which took place on October 1. It’s easier to say that Madrid’s actions “were excessive.”
The Italian politician also noted that the solution to the crisis will be a “dialogue” and a vote based on legal grounds. Even people who do not want changes in the administrative-territorial system will have the right to vote.
The autonomy of Catalonia is planned to be suspended for a long time, applying the 155th article of the main law of the country, the measures for which are now being approved. These plans were announced after the head of the region Karles Puigdemont wrote a letter threatening to launch a declaration of independence by voting in the event that Madrid continues to interfere with the dialogue.
I’d like to remind you that today, October 27,the Senate of Spain will consider the government’s plan to transfer control of Madrid to Catalonia and the authority of the autonomy.
The Senate is expected to approve the activation of article 155 of the Spanish Constitution, which gives the government the authority to “take all necessary measures to coerce” the region during the crisis. The article has never been used before.

Spain, Italy – who is next in this “parade of sovereignties”?

Passions over the recent plebiscite about the independence of Catalonia are running high, and the destiny of this autonomous community is still unknown. On Saturday, October 21, at an emergency meeting of the Spanish government, it was decided to apply 155 article of the Spanish Constitution, which allows to abolish the autonomous status of Catalonia. This decision must be finally approved by the Senate (Upper House) of the Spanish Parliament, whose meeting is scheduled for October 27. In turn, the Parliament of Catalonia can declare already independence of the region on October 26. What’s Puigdemont waiting for?! Maybe, when Madrid itself recognizes Catalan independence? I think, nevertheless, he is simply following a planned scenario, written by George Soros, an American billionaire.
I will assume that in Catalonia we are witnessing one of the stages of the transformation of the European Union into the so-called “Union of Regions”, in which the nation-states will be completely fragmented, and the center will be only one and will be located exactly in Brussels. Indeed, the Catalan separatists insist on the “European”, not on the national identity. Here we see the typical mechanism of the “color revolution” of Soros, especially as he was already caught in the process of financing Catalan nationalists.
Catalan separatism is not a struggle for national independence, but a struggle for the possibility of direct subordination of Catalonia to Brussels bureaucrats without mediators from Madrid. They want “more Europe and less Madrid,” that is, it’s not even a struggle for independence, but rather a separation of the region in favor of the European Commission. It is not by chance that the main supporter of increasing the influence of the European Commission and the dismantling of European nation states, George Soros, financed two Catalan organizations that played a key role in the struggle for Catalan pseudo-dependence. As “La Vanguardia” reported in 2016, Soros financed the Council of Public Diplomacy of Catalonia (Consell per la Diplomàcia Pública de Catalunya), an organization that actually serves as the Catalan “Ministry of Foreign Affairs” and is a tool for lobbying Catalan interests at the EU level, and also supported financially CIDOB (non-commercial organization), which plays the important role of a “brain”, working for Catalan politicians and separatists.
It is also important that in the conflict between Barcelona and Madrid, the sympathies of the American oligarch are clearly on the side of “pro-European separatists”. Most likely, it’s not even in Catalonia itself, but in creating a scheme that can be repeated in different European countries until the European Union becomes practically a single state controlled by no one elected European bureaucrats.
Let’s remember the terrorist attacks in Barcelona that should lead to the requirements for limiting uncontrolled migration to the European Union, but the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Catalonia, Raul Romeva, stated that “the problem was not migration,” but that “some people perceived this as a problem”, and also demanded to fight xenophobia, which caused just a storm of enthusiasm in American and British media. It should be noted that the British and American media are very pleased when a Catalan politician expresses the theses from the Soros method of tolerance and that African and Middle Eastern migrants are happiness for Europe, and not a reason for concern or for the closure of borders. Tolerance of Catalan politicians has reached a level that recent migrants support the independence of Catalonia. Another sign of truly “Soros” tolerance is that Barcelona is now one of the “centers of jihadist terrorism in Spain,” as the Canadian newspaper “Globe and Mail” said.
What is next?! Most likely, there will be the implementation in practice of a typical “Gandhi-style” strategy that involves careful design of the victim’s image and at the same time creates conditions under which any violence or punishment of political activists turns into serious image losses for the authorities. If President Puigdemont announced immediately independence “here and now,” he would be immediately arrested, and in the eyes of the public and the international community this would look quite an adequate response. Now it turns out that there is independence, but it does not seem to exist, and any violence or punitive operations by the Spanish authorities will look like an act of unmotivated cruelty. So, step by step, the Catalan separatists will “press” Madrid to achieve the goal – the intervention of the European Commission as a mediator, and from there to the actual collapse of Spain and the launch of a chain reaction in other European countries.
So, while Catalonia is recovering from the actions of American oligarchs, yesterday, October 22, in Italy, Veneto and Lombardy held referendums. Although we are not talking about the complete separation of regions, they did it only to achieve greater autonomy. More precisely, Lombardy and Veneto want to save a large share of financial resources, reducing the so-called “residual tax”, that is, the gap between the taxes paid by the region and the state funds received for regional development. But this may already be another signal of intervention by the same American oligarch, George Soros. I wonder who will be next in his list?
