The EU: A New Ottoman Empire!

In light of BREXIT and Trump’s stance on the less than transparent UN, Juncker is making a bid to find alternate states to bring under the EU umbrella.

Macedonia:   With a population that is roughly 64% Christian and 33% Muslim, Macedonia is a fitting choice to add to the debt of the EU.   It’s unemployment rate is 27-30% and its poverty rate is in excess of 22%.   It’s newly elected Prime Minister, Zoran Zaev of the Social Democrat Union, is mired in more than a bit of controversy as he was charged with conspiracy with ‘a foreign intelligence service’ in initiating a coup against the previous Prime Minister. His squeaky election win was further underscored by the fact that the previous PM was part of the VMRO-DPMNE Party which is considered ‘nationalist’.

Albania:   Roughly 60% of the population is Muslim.   It has the 10th largest reserves of oil, and is the worlds leading exporter of chromium which is used as an anti-corrosive in steel plating. Albania is considered a prime tourist destination for southern Europeans and US citizens. Unemployment is roughly 15%, it operates a trade deficit of -9.7%. It’s PM, Edi Rama, is a member of the Socialist Party.

Bosnia:   Cited as 51% Muslim, the country is loosely defined as a liberal democracy. Despite this tag, “…the highest political authority in the country is the High Representative in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the chief executive officer for the international civilian presence in the country and is selected by the European Union. Since 1995, the High Representative has been able to bypass the elected parliamentary assembly, and since 1997 has been able to remove elected officials. The methods selected by the High Representative have been criticized as undemocratic.   International supervision is to end when the country is deemed politically and democratically stable and self-sustaining.

In essence, the country is ruled by the EU.

It’s infrastructure and economy have yet to recover from the Bosnian/Croatian war that ended in 1995. Main industries include steel, coal and iron ore.   Its unemployment rate is near 40%, and it requires IMF loans simply to survive.

Kosovo: Approximately 96% Muslim, Kosovo’s status as a nation is subject to controversy. Like Bosnia, it has yet to sustain itself since the Yugoslavia war that ended in 1995.   Rich in agriculture, the country boasts 53% of its land use for the production of agri-products, and 41% a forestry. The current PM, Ramush Haradinaj, served in the Kosovo war and although he was indicted for war crimes, no charges were implemented.

Montenegro: The newly elected Prime Minister, Dusko Marcovic, is a member of the Democratic Socialists, not unlike Macedonia’s political metamorphosis. A tiny nation that was also created as a result of the Yugoslav war, its main industry is tourism. While in need of major investment within infrastructure to increase the revenue basis of this industry, Montenegro is a recipient of Climate Change funds with the approval of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.

The Baltic State Region, recognized as developing countries who are at the greatest risk of global warming, have been targeted for Climate Change funding according to the Paris Accord in order to mitigate these potentially catastrophic events…

In essence, all of this means that we have a bunch of Baltic countries whose nominal GDP per capita ranges from a low $3200 to about $6200, whose economies are in desperate need of a boost in monetary investment, preferably free, whose ethnicities are either largely or predominantly Muslim, who belong to the Socialist/Communist leaning political spectrum, and whose land bears fertile usage, wherein a solution was concocted in which a fake moral and ethical agenda of climate change was created, funded with private and global government donated money via the Paris Climate Accord and the UN, that would then be diverted to these economies for rebuilding and infrastructure spending so as to reinvent viable economies to be integrated into the EU, with the ultimate goal of recreating a New Ottomon Empire, which coincidentally was the stated goal of ISIS and Al-Nusra. In the meantime, the citizens of the EU extend welcoming arms unaware that their own ethnicities will soon become the minority and their lives uprooted and displaced. All under the guise of Merkel and Juncker who seemingly are aglaze in a false belief of arrogant power, indoctrinated into trusting that they will be tasked with a leading power role over this New Ottoman Empire, while childishly unaware that they are mere puppets who are ultimately quite expendable…


BREXIT Poll: The Independent

A British media presence which is described as tremendously ‘Liberal’ despite its rather oblique name, The Independent, has conducted its very own poll which has been picked up by the mainstream media in which it claims that over half of the UK now opposes BREXIT.   This same non-Independent routinely teams with Al Jazeera in promoting news briefs and articles. In 2008 it relaunched itself from its status as a ‘Tabloid’ and began attempting to report – actual news.

And this ‘Poll’ is completely – Independent…

Of course its connection to Al Jazeera a Qatari media front, is further supported by the fact that the principle owner of The Independent is Sultan Muhammad Abjljadayel, a Saudi businessman. It is further revealed that Sultan Muhammad Abuljadayel works for NCB Capital, the investment banking arm of the National Commercial Bank, which is controlled by the Saudi government and is one of the biggest banks in the Middle East.

Al Jazeera was formed by the former Qatari Emir, Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, who overthrew his father as Emir, who overthrew his cousin. He attended the Royal British Military Academy, as did his son – who is now the current Emir of Qatar.

As in – All In The Family – Britain first…

The other two owners of the Non-Independent are a Russian father and son team, Lebedev. Alexander Lebedev’s parents were both Russian intelligentisia, and Alexander was former KGB assigned to London. Alexander Lebedev is also part owner of the Russian paper, Novaya Gazeta, which supports Liberalism, an anti-Putin regime, and is affiliated with the New York Times; they have an agreement to publish selected articles translated into Russian.

It would also appear that Lebedev has financial assets in the Ukraine and specifically Crimea which came under attack by former President Yanukovich for allegations of tax evasion prior to the coup.

The other independent news outlet owned by Lebdeved is the London evening Standard, which is billed as a tabloid and is free.

The point? Contrary to the rant of David Cameron claiming that Democracy is at stake when Trump exposes fake journalism, the media is sorely NOT Independent. It has long been exploited and used as a tool to subvert Democracy and to wield a heavy hand in creating a staged world.

The same David Cameron ‘pretended’ to be a conservative until elected whereupon he began to implement his ‘progressive liberal’ positions. The same Cameron whose wealth was hidden in offshore accounts as exposed by the Panama Paper Caper. The same David Cameron who is chairman for The National Citizen Service, an organization created by Cameron while Prime Minister, funded by the UK government, and has been under tremendous criticism since it’s inception as a Big Society format within a purely Socialist ideology that sounds a bit too close to the Soros placard of Open Society…

And so – The Independent poll conducted by the Non-Independent news media has about as much truth to it as the … Mueller hypocrisy…mess.

BREXIT -Burned By Soros


They are out! They are in! They are safe! They are ruined! The pound is up! It is down… It is up – and down and turning all around – Mother May I – Theresa?

Brother. Bother. UK’s Theresa May, Help!

Parliament must vote on whether the UK can start the initiation of Article 50 in leaving the EU. The government is appealing. The people’s vote doesn’t count. And a stalled process only makes the entire fiasco a mockery of justice, and The People.

So who is behind this stall? Mz Gina Miller – an investment manager, Deir Dos Santos – a hairdresser, and the People’s Challenge group, set up by Grahame Pigney, an expat living in France, and backed by a crowd-funding campaign. Not exactly a stellar bunch of heavy weights…

Who is Mz Gina Miller? The wife of investment guru Alan Miller who came aboard New Star Hedge Fund and was wooed by Soros. Shortly after Alan’s initiation, Soros was dangling an opportunity – $100 million in investment management potential which would amount to a 40% initial startup investment stake. The fund is based in Bermuda to avoid taxes.  No surprise.  Two years later, in 2003, New Star brought on two former fund managers from Soros Fund Management, Sajid Ramzan and Chris Beton.  I’d say Soros has a say in the fund’s operations. Since their initial founding the fund has reaped billions. Thank you Soros.

Enter BREXIT and A favor deserves A favor.

Soros has been openly opposed to Brexit.  Tapping one of New Star’s partners, Gina Miller, to do his bidding would explain how she could exert the influence she has over the entire judiciary and parliament of the UK despite the fact that she is nobody.

Then there is Grahame Pigney whose LinkedIn site recognizes Gina Miller as an associate. How would he know Gina, he’s an expat living in France?   How can a vote that has been decided by the People – be contested by a couple of wealthy operators?  Lord Thomas who is presiding over the case brought by Miller is a member of the European Law Institute which is considered a Soros Open Society apparatus since its founding. And so the circle is complete.  Soros has organized a fight.

Miller, New Star, Lord Thomas, Grahame Pigney, the entire exploiters of the anti-BREXIT vote, are now attempting to uproot the voters via pressure from Soros.

What say you UK? Who is your Master?

You, The People, have a say, have rights, have the power, if you choose. And like the US, you can rise up against the shadows and just say – NO! Because, our world, our history, and our future are at stake. And that’s worth fighting for!

Deutsche Bank – A Microcosm of the Fall of the EU …

Once again, while our rapt focus has been on the real life drama of Trump vs. Hillary the economy continues to be sidelined. In particular, the performance of our biggest and ‘brightest’ banks.

In 2007, as bank shares began their infamous plummet, Citigroup shares dove from a high of $557 to just $15, Bank of America went from $54 to $3, Deutsche Bank from $160 to $22 and Credit Suisse from $78 to $20, JP Morgan Chase from $52 to $15 and Wells Fargo from $37 to $8.

What is interesting is the performance since then.

Deutsche Bank is in the proverbial twalette. Shares are trading in the $13 range and speculation is that it is sinking much like the Titanic. Gross Revenues are actually up since 2007, but write-offs and expenses are eating up the company. Convicted of LIBOR manipulation, and fined $2.5 billion in 2015, management would seem a bit dicey. Managed by ‘co-CEO’s, Fitschen and Jain’ until 2016, the bank has gone from being the largest foreign exchange dealer in the world as of 2009, to a potential complete cave in 2016. Jain joined as a co-CEO in 2011 while Fitschen became CEO in 2009, the same year Fitschen was being investigated for sales tax evasion… Not a good choice mate.

As co-CEO’s their compensation packages continued to rise as the bank continued to tank. Reaching about 7.5 million euro’s apiece (about $10 million each), employment rose as shares fell, pensions rose as shares fell, and write-offs rose – as shares fell. The new CEO as of this year is a Brit by the name of John Cryan. And anxiety reigns as the bank continues its perilous slide into the abyss.

Wells Fargo. In 2009, Wells Fargo shares tanked from $40 to about $8. However, today the stock trades at $47.90 and has been as high as $57.94. A success story! But greed is greed no matter where you are in the CEO business. John Stumpf, CEO since 2007, has a reported compensation package well over $23 million, which is 473 times the median wage, the bank has been mired in a number of lawsuits including discrimination, tax avoidance, political activism, making loans to unqualified individuals, etc…

And while revenue continues to rise and CEO compensation and incentive packages increase annually, employee benefits have tanked with a tremendous portion of employees making just $15 per hour.

That being said, why is one powerhouse failing and the other skyrocketing?

Deutsche Bank is linked heavily to European countries whose EU contribution is significantly less than their expenditures: Greece, Estonia, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Hungary, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Malta, and Czech Republic. These countries borrow and spend upwards of 6 times their contributions to the union. It is a farcical game of pockets or find the ball beneath the cups when the ball isn’t even there, because slight of hand magic has removed it from the table completely.

Deutsche Bank is simply a microcosm of what is happening to the EU.

Of 28 countries, including the UK, contributing to the EU Commission, 19 countries (68%) operate each and every year in the red. In essence, France, Italy and Germany will now be tasked with propping up the entire European Union given BREXIT.

Credit Suisse, another European banking powerhouse once traded at $80 per share. It fell to $20 at the peak of the crisis… and has continued to fall since – standing at just $11.60 per share today.

So while the massive immigration of refugees is credited with the coming fall of Europe, the fact is, they are simply the icing, the fall had already started and has been steadily gaining momentum. The impact? A devastating ripple…  This is not a coincidence, it is well planned and a shift is in the making – will it be the new and improved Ottoman Empire?  Or something else, something beyond our imagination.  Something good?  Something evil?

And while France and Germany have seemingly been the main targets of ISIS ( no coincidence), I imagine Italy will find itself the next victim.  Bringing down the support system and infiltrating it with chaos is – the Art of War.  As in – Buyer Beware…

BREXIT: Who is Next

While the media exploits the fear of British expatriates living in Spain, France and Portugal, the truth is far far less intimidating. The fact is, expatriates are creating revenue, they own businesses, they own property and these EU countries reap the benefits of their investment in the economy. International law protects them in the event that a government might attempt to alter the rules of engagement, and their incentive is quite nil.

In fact, Spain and Portugal have historically generously opened their arms to expatriates from everywhere, including the US, offering the same easy transition and assistance. For years, the aura, the beaches, the lifestyle, the stress-free environment of these countries has called to foreigners and they have come eager to acclimate and set-up shop. Tourism is healthy, refugee influx is light, and while crime is an issue in Barcelona and Madrid, it fades dramatically in smaller towns and villages. Although the State Department has issued warnings about the crime rates in Spain, a quick statistical check indicates that the US surpasses their murder rate 5:1, their rape rate 8:1, violent crime 9:1, and total crimes in the US were 85% higher than Spain.

Does that mean the State department should issue a warning for foreigners coming to the US?

While EU expatriates are assured of their status and their rights, incoming expatriates may not have the same rights which should become a negotiation between the respective countries governments going forward.

And despite all this being made clear months ago, despite all the assurances, the media would like to provoke tension and fear with a story of one families fear. Stoking the embers so as to invoke a full fledged fire. In fact, the stories of expatriates is quite the opposite, life has been grand in Spain and Portugal, and returning the the strife and chaos of London simply isn’t an option, nor is it a goal.

The larger issue is the rumbling of EU collapse as other wealthy countries advocate for their freedom. Freedom from what? From a corrupted Commission government that has no transparency, stifling expenses, unaccounted wages, and demands that are not representative of the people, but instead are representative of the Commission. A Commission that needs the wealthy countries to prop up their livelihood and justify their existence – a two government system requiring higher taxation to support.

Not only does the Commission gain it’s livelihood and income from membership taxation, but from excise taxes. Those taxes would not be imposed on countries leaving the EU, and thus their ability to be more competitive in trade negotiations is the attraction, leaving the remaining EU countries scrambling.

While the UK currently has a negative trade balance with their top exports being cars, oil and gold, that VAT tax becomes a hot issue as it is no longer a necessary prop for the Commission. The UK’s major export partners include the US, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland and France. Obviously, the US is not a part of the EU, but then neither is Switzerland an EU member, and only a part of The Netherlands is a member.

Although the initial impact on the UK will be rooted in more fear than fact, the larger agenda of what is being manipulated to be the new EU, becomes a more interesting question. And Germany most certainly has the most to lose, the largest economy, and largest import of refugees.

I’d be watching Germany.  Not because they have any intention of Germexit, but because they have to ante more and more to cover the refugees, and now the lost revenue of the UK.

BREXIT – A Win For Soros!

Everyone is thinking that the people out-maneuvered Soros with Brexit… Think again.

Soros stockpiled gold and sold stocks – as in, he knew the outcome and is profiting once again. Soros had an agenda against Cameron for years, and perhaps the Panama Paper Caper was targeting Cameron more than Putin as the media bahhhed like sheep. It would be rather short-sighted to think Soros didn’t know that Cameron was in the Panama Papers. The idea that Soros plan backfired is preposterous. “Never underestimate one’s enemy…” The Art of War. Soros wanted Cameron out, how better than to mask the true agenda of Brexit, all the while banking on a ‘Leave’ vote.

It is no different than the Soros Master Manipulator urging the EU to not take in refugees – and then urging them to take in millions more – all the while hedging his bet with Erdogan. The mantra? “Do what I do, not what I say!”

While Germany grapples with the blackmail of Turkey’s EU membership, more and more Germanic countries want out. The result? The EU will become the new Muslim Nation joining hands with the Middle East to create the Ottoman Empire – once again.

Cameron had one last chance to save face and he failed, he knew it, and his role in the World Order has now been vanquished. But he also knows too much, and that puts him at risk for becoming a statistic of suicide…

Propaganda Due. An organization that ruled Italy and parts of Europe for thirty years after WWII. They used terrorist tactics including assassinations, kidnappings, paramilitary operations (NATO), and economic sanctions to get what they wanted. Civilians were targeted so as to create a sense of urgency and the need for more control for safety and security. Following the merging of the Clandestine Committee of the Western Union (CCWU) and NATO in 1949, their power and operations escalated to the nth degree, morphing into what is now referred to as the “shadow government”.

It involved intelligence divisions of every major country, was connected to the Mafia, the CIA, multiple governments and hundreds if not thousands of politicians. Central to its cabal, it was rooted in the Masonic Temple and dabbled inside the Vatican, the extent of which is ‘not available’. They ruled with an iron fist.

The strategy was to create false tensions within countries, generate the threat of war, denounce peaceable citizens as rebels and unpatriotic terrorists, escalate protests with ‘provocateurs’, so as to destabilize a country and send it into chaos. Why? Because – peace is considered a threat to the dominance of western power structures. The idea is that the only way to maintain dominance is to rule by instilling fear.

Does this all sound familiar, because it should – it is the exact template that we have been subjected to for fifteen years, since 9-11. It is a global elite that is not bound by law, order, or budgets. Ron Paul refers to the funds used in these strategies as the CIA black budgets wherein no accounting is ever administered, the money is available, it is funneled, and all trace is wiped clean.

Back to Brexit. Soros lost confidence in Cameron. Dividing the EU is basic military – divide and conquer. Cameron became the scapegoat, and the UK has been manipulated once again.

Did Soros hedge against the Pound along with his ante up of gold and divesture of stocks? Probably, he’s not one to miss a good laugh at the idiocy of the game all the while raking in more money. While the financial fallout to the EU Commission will not be pretty as they struggle to deal with the refugees, all the while losing the annual ante from the UK, which amounted to a hefty 13 billion Euro as of 2015. How can the EU fill that financial void? Of course – enter Turkey.

It’s called – The Strategy of Tension

Republicans Supporting Hillary

Republicans supporting Hillary?     That’s heinous – and it defiles the Republican Party!  It only seems to support the notion that the Good Ole Boys are a club that will do anything to maintain power and the gender identity has been crossed. The Boys aren’t for their party – they are for the Cabal; Bush, McCain, Romney, Kagan, the list is growing and the allegiance is obvious – it isn’t the party, it isn’t the ideologies, it is the Cabal. Which only emphasizes the people, the citizens who are not represented, we are ruled like slaves.

So if the Republican Party backs a Democrat for President, does that mean that the Republican Party has officially been corrupted by the shadow power structure?   Have they succumbed, or was this where they existed all the time?  Has the party system been a joke?  Yes. Absolutely. Without a doubt.

Is it any different than the church changing it’s views to align with the liberal views of homosexuality?   No. It is a line that you either have – or you don’t. Just make a statement and stick to it, abide by it, adhere to the ethic and morality, just take responsibility!!  Help me here!

I have three sons – each completely unique and special for who they are.  I would die for each of them in a second. But I do believe, if you as an organization, whether it be political, environmental, religious, or whatever, and within your framework you have rules that are sacrosanct, you don’t waver. They are the rules. This is what defines who your are, your values and what we can expect you to be!    If you are republican – then you DO NOT back a Democrat unless there is a corrupt agenda that you are attempting to support.  And therein you become quite very – suspect – as a defector, or worse, an outright traitor.

The Trust – goes flamingly out the window in a split second!!

McCain – he is a known crazy who has backed world obliteration. Romney? I actually supported, but have changed my mind from support to absolute fear! Bush – we always knew he was knee deep in the shadows, and so the lies go.

Add to the craziness, and we have Democrats, grown middle aged people staging a ‘sit-in’ on the Congressional floor like they were in college and 18 years old! And we are supposed to respect these people? It is absurd! Did it work in the sixties? NO! So why do these middle aged loons think they will garner respect exposing their vericose veins and pudgy waistlines and too strict suits and pompador hairstyles in a very immature – sit-in?    They each live a mega lifestyle, pay heinous amounts for their mortgage and cars and swimming pools and nannies, live like royalty, and yet they have the audacity to stage a ‘sit-in’ like they are Goldie Hawn on Laugh In!  Ewwwwww….

Ugh. Personally, I find it incredibly embarrassing.

How old are you? What year is this? What degree did you get from college? Protest marches?

And somehow, these grownup politicians think that by staging a ‘sit-in’, they are showing how much better they are than the bombast of Trump? They are showing their superior intellect and advanced degree?

Help me!

And as the media debates what is fair game in advertising for the campaigns – we already know – everything is fair game – because that is the bimbo line drawn years ago. Doesn’t make it right – simply makes it reality. Attacking Trump’s wife is fair game – but attacking Mr. Bill’s lecherous past is somehow not… Attacking Trump’s business dealings is fair game – but attacking Hillary’s bogus foundation – is somehow – not. Attacking Trumps’ appearance is apparently fair game – but it is heinous to attack Hillary and her ‘appearance’.

Hypocrisy is large and in charge. What is fair – in today’s politics – would seem to be – everything. As in – buyer beware.

As in the Brexit campaign, we are seeing a topsy-turvy situation in which the actual truthful outcome is an unknown, and the propaganda is so pervasive no one has any idea why they support one side or the other, they only know what they have been told.

What is clear is that Soros is weighted in Gold. And a Brexit will cause gold to spike – temporarily, and the pound, to spiral, temporarily. But the sentiment of the people will make everything feel a bit off, a bit uneasy, whatever the outcome. And ultimately, that is the agenda. It makes us feel vulnerable, it makes us feel unsteady, it makes us feel anxious. And that is the true Brexit. Not the reality, but the designed.  And then – somehow – everything will fall into place and all will be alright… until the next perceived crisis and we panic!

And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love – that you make. And that’s all there is.

BREXIT – Turkey and the Rise of The Ottoman Empire

With all the talk of whether the UK should make a ‘Brexit’ or not – perhaps the reality is that the UK is not following the criteria and doesn’t want more probing into its finances that might reveal some inconsistencies…

David Cameron?

There are five financial rules for maintaining EU membership:   1) HICP Inflation model which states that inflation can not be higher than the value of the three countries with the lowest levels averaged (Greece, Bulgaria and Cyprus have been given a green light despite their levels not complying), 2) Government deficit relative to GDP must not exceed 3%, 3) Government debt to GDP must not exceed 60%, 4) Exchange rate stability of their currency for the previous two years, and 5) Long term interest rates can not be more than 2% higher than the government bond yields of the three countries with the lowest HICP values.

Can the UK even meet this criteria?  Nah.

Government debt to GDP is 90.6%.

Government deficit relative to GDP was 5.7% for 2014-2015.

Inflation rate is 2.2% vs the max allowable as of 2014 of 1.7%.

But they aren’t the only ones who don’t meet the criteria. Exceptions are rampant in order to create a false bubble of membership. Denmark and Sweden have opted out. Switzerland and Norway were never in. Greece is in trouble. Italy is in trouble. A number of countries simply can not meet all the financial criteria and yet they are continually given – a pass. Which makes the criteria – ridiculous at best.

Enter Turkey. Turkey is blackmailing for admission and the EU is bowing and scraping. Is that a membership club you would want to belong to?

Who is Turkey’s biggest supporter in accession to the EU? The UK!   The same UK that wants to leave, as in Brexit, supports Turkey joining. A bit odd. Interestingly, one of the biggest parts of the EU membership accession would allow for visa-free travel. As in refugees, ISIS, etc… How do you stem the flow of refugees from Turkey while opening visa-free travel?   They are not mutually indistinct.

Turkey only has 3% of it’s physical land that is considered a part of southeastern Europe, and this 3% gives it the authority to apply for membership. Currently, Turkey has a population that would make it second to Germany. As a result, they would be entitled to the second largest number of MEP’s in the European Parliament. It is anticipated that their population will exceed that of Germany as of 2020, potentially giving them control of the EU. Arab refugees are the new population in Europe given a falling national population for just about every country in Europe.   So, it isn’t just about ISIS, it is about changing the demographics of Europe.

In addition, admitting Turkey and giving them Parliament advantage, would open the door to the admission of other Islamic nations. And the rise of the Ottoman Empire could once again take hold, not through the backdoor as in ISIS – but right through the front door…

But then there is Cyprus. Cyprus has no land in congruence with Europe and was still granted admission (Cyprus sits ‘below’ Turkey). So if Turkey became an EU member, and a part of Europe, would it follow that any lands adjacent to Turkey could qualify for membership? Turkey is bordered by eight countries; Iraq, Syria, Armenia, Azerbaijani, Iran, Georgia, Greece and Bulgaria.  Ottoman Empire united…

While currently no EU country may have more than 96 MEP’s, opening the door to more accession, changing the face of the Parliament, and applying lax standards and rules with exceptions can easily be seen as the shift toward a Europe that is no longer European.

It becomes easier to understand why the UK would vote for Brexit.

Side note: Turkey is directly North of Israel…

Hollande bestows French Legion of Honor Medal – on Saudi prince

Which is worse? Obama getting the Nobel Peace Prize when he’s done nothing peaceful? Or the Saudi Prince getting the highest medal of honor from France’s Hollande, for human rights and fighting terrorism…?

Is this insane or what?

Hollande has obviously spurned himself to the lowest of scullery maids in bowing and scraping to the Saudi’s. But he has also made the award, The Legion of Honor, – worthless for all future potential recipients. As did the Nobel Peace Prize panel.

While Bush was scurled for the Afghan war, Obama has been instrumental in A) continuing that war, B) instigating the Ukraine civil war, C) destroying Syria D) allowing for the takeover of Iraq by ISIS, E) destroying Yemen, F) failed coups in Egypt, Turkey, Argentina and Brazil, and G) creating the worst racial divide not seen since the 1950’s and 1960’s!  Gee, that’s definitely deserving of a “Peace Prize”! In the meantime, the US would seem to have fewer and fewer friends left and many allies that would seem to be instrumental in helping ISIS and love beheading people. Not good….. not good at all.

The Saudi Prince is no better:    supporting ISIS, ethnic cleansing in Yemen, ethnic cleansing in Syria, beheadings, bombing of schools, hospitals, and civilians indiscriminately…   Worthy of a medal for Human Rights and fighting Terrorism…  And France bestows upon them the highest nationalist award in the country.  WOW!

But the topsy-turviness continues –

After David Cameron resolutely decried that Trump was devisive, wrong, Islamaphobic and stupid on banning refugee immigration, today the UK Metropolitan Police Commissioner declared that the UK was facing the threat of ‘enormous and spectacular attacks by ISIS’, and Cameron stated that the UK would not join in the EU migrant quota to divvy up refugees… So I guess that makes Cameron – divisive, stupid, wrong and Islamaphobic.

In addition, the UK has launched the HMS Enterprise, a British warship, in the Aegean Sea to pick up migrants and return them to Libya. Something similar to building a wall, only this would be termed a sea barrier…so I guess that’s different…

These referendums come on the heels of the upcoming vote as to whether Britain should exit the EU or remain. While Cameron clearly wants to remain, many within his cabinet are not so keen. Why? Fears rule. While the UK would thus be free of the regulations, rules, and doctrines imposed by the European Commission, trade tariffs would apply. But the bigger fear is that the wealth of the EU would be further diminished given the wealthiest Norwegian countries are out, and more and more impoverished nations vie to gain access to the pool of EU Commission benefits.  The countries that have the highest ‘net benefit’ from the EU Commission are Poland, Greece, Portugal, Hungary, Romania and Czech Republic. Other countries that have net benefits are: Slovakia, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Latvia, Estonia and Luxembourg.  That means of 28 member countries, about 18 receive ‘net benefits’ – 64% get back more than they pay.

Why Luxembourg? They have the second largest GDP per capita in the world, why would they have a net benefit from the Commission?  Agriculture subsidies. According to Farm Subsidies, the transparency of who-what-why Luxembourg would be such a recipient is oddly unaccounted. No one will talk – not the Commission or Luxembourg. Reporting is scarce to non-existent despite Commission requirements.  More Commission sticky fingers.

In the meantime, the ever emboldened Erdogan smiles deliciously as he offers to ‘take back’ all the non-Syrian refugees he released into Europe – for a price – a pretty penny price of about $3.3 billion. Calling it ‘cooperation’ a term that is better defined as ‘Bribery’. And no doubt the EU will comply, maybe just as the UK makes it’s Brexit thus preserving their ‘fair share’ of the $3.3 to perhaps $20 billion that Turkey may ultimately demand. Of course we can completely trust Erdogan at his word…

Hollande spits back that the UK will suffer ‘consequences’ should they exit. And Germany will be left to absorb the bill.  But hey, the governments know what they are doing – right?
