Verbal fists are a-flying in the EU! Guy Verhofstadt, Leader of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe, apparently thinks that through bully tactics and personal assaults, he will win over the populist Italian government and reform them to be just like him – a Socialist Federalist with neoliberal leanings.
His outbursts are somewhat reminiscent of Boris Johnson of the UK; flaming, boorish, and uncivilized. He would appear to lack a ‘filter’.
But then he always was more than a bit brash: In 1991, he was ousted from his position in the Belgium government, he disappeared completely until 1997 having remolded himself and softened his radicalism somewhat. In 1999 he was elected PM and spiraled his country into rising unemployment and debt. Despite his quite lackluster achievements, he was elected into the European Parliament in 2009 and proceeded to offend Greece, Italy, the UK, US, Turkey and Russia.
Verhofstadt founded the Spinelli Group as a Federalist Movement to squelch nationalism and sovereignty. Spinelli was a Communist who co-wrote with Ernesto Rossi the Ventotene Manifesto while imprisoned during WWII. The Manifesto not only advocates for a Federalist Europe, but a Federalist World – wherein a one world government would rule. Hmmmm.
He writes for a publication, Project Syndicate, which has been hailed as the smartest op-ed and one of five top news sites in the world! It is funded by the Soros Open Society Foundation, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Die Zeit, and the Politiken Foundation – a Social Liberal political medium that aligned with the Nazi’s during WWII and claimed Winston Churchill was a ‘dangerous man’.
AHHHH, but it gets better: He is on the Board of Trustees for Friends Of Europe – whose funders include: Open Society Foundation, BP, Cargill, European Commission, and Croplife International which is the global crop protector of Monsanto, Syngenta, DuPont, Bayer, BASF, Sumitomo, FMC and DOW pushing for weakening pesticide regulations throughout the globe. Croplife supports the Science Media Center which is embroiled in controversy for its human genetics modification research utilizing embryo’s obtained through assisted reproduction.
A member of the Honorary Council for the European Movement International, Verhofstadt further distinguishes himself as fully integrated in a Swamp deeply embedded in rather conspiratorial links dating from the post WWII era. The American Committee on United Europe had as it’s first Vice Chairman, Allen Dulles of the US CIA, and was established so as to funnel money to the European Movement International. The rationale was to support a Federalist Europe and thus sidestep Communism. Allen Dulles was at the forefront of Operation Mockingbird and MKUltra.
These Communist operations of post WWII have lived and thrived quite well, and are the foundation of the Swamp.
Recently, Verhofstadt’s attacks have been directed against Italy’s populist party and specifically PM Guiseppe Conte who he is calling a ‘puppet’ within the degeneration of Italy. In addition, Verhofstadt blames the Populism within Italy as a Russian- Putin plot similar to the Mueller investigation in the US. Apparently the EU Communists believe the core instigator in the fall of the EU, and the instability of Federalist ideologies lies with Putin…
The detante would appear to be Verhofstadt’s means of vilifying PM Conte into submission to the EU Socialist agenda. Of course it isn’t the only confrontational chaos being flayed at Italy. France’s Macron recently had a hissy fit when the Yellow Vests sat down and talked with Italy’s Deputy PM, Salvini. Apparently, trying to bridge the discourse was seen by Macron as a challenge to his ability to lead given calls for his resignation have gained traction.
But France is claiming that the verbal abuse stems from Italy, not the other way around, claiming that Italy’s di Maio has sited France as a causal factor in the increased poverty within Africa, exploiting Libya, and pushing for a Macron loss in the coming elections.
From the perspective of the abuse endured by Trump during his first two years, France is most definitely acting like a whinny. But then, that would define the difference between Macron and Trump, or Macron and Putin.
In the end, the EU battle has disintegrated into a play for communism vs. nationalism, with Germany leading the Communist agenda in cooperation with the EU Parliament, the EU Commission, and Belgium.
It truly is a sad state of affairs, but I am sure that somehow, someone will lead the fray by deciding it is all Trump’s fault and thus alleviate the row and redirect and distract the chaos from whence it came – Germany.
