In 2014, Prime Minister Renzi of Italy put forth various Constitutional Amendments that 1) gave the senate significantly less power, and the President and PM significantly greater power, and 2) overhauled the voting system which they referred to as ‘proportional representation, ie redefining districts.
These same measures are the basis for Eric Holder’s and Barack Obama’s new venture, “The National Democratic Redistricting Committee” which they launched January 2017 in response to Trump’s Presidential victory. It’s more commonly known as Gerrymandering, or manipulating districts so as to create new electoral, so as to sway an election to one party.
It is because of these reforms that despite Italy’s voting for a more right wing government, the Socialist President, Mattarela, interceded in the populist vote and ousted the nationalist pick, Paolo Savona, as Economy Minister because of his anti-EU stance. It is believed that Merkel directed Mattarela to nix the choice and instead replace Savona with her IMF favorite, Carlo Cotterelli because of his ‘friendly’ alignment with Germany and the EU.
As such, Italy is now facing exactly what Renzi and Mattarela created with their “Constitutional Reform”, a staunch dictatorship that is sure to see an internal revolt by The People.
Cotterelli’s wife Miria Pegato who is a manager at the World Bank Group which has received its fair share of criticism for corruption driven by NGO imperialism.
Both the IMF and The World Bank are well known toys of George Soros. Developed as a part and parcel of the Bretton Woods System, both the IMF and World Bank were created to enhance Globalization and Trade Imbalances as a result of WWI and WWII. In fact, what it accomplished was to immediately crash US trade as it shifted the balance overseas. Somewhat like ‘income redistribution’.
In essence, Italy is now facing a coup as the non-elected Establishment, Socialists, undermine the elected Populists. There is talk of holding ‘new elections’ while allowing Mattarela and Cotterelli to act as the governing authority and forcing out both the Five Star Movement and The League – the aligned populist/nationalist government that jointly won.
The Establishment doesn’t like who won, or their choice for Economy Minister, therefore, The Establishment is blocking the authority of the elected government and moving in of their own accord. The New York Times says its all in the best interest of Italy given that the new elected government would probably have failed anyway given they were not ‘politicians’ but businessmen…
The irony of course, is the continued question, “Can Italy’s strange new government who know nothing, fix the mess that the Establishment created”, and by default, “Since Italy’s elected government has yet to form a coalition that The Establishment approves of, it makes sense to allow The Establishment to oust the elected government and rule by coup given they are well aware of the mess they have created”.
And The People said, “Ah.”
Worse, the media would have us believe that Italy’s government woes have caused the price of oil to tank… However, the two are not even remotely connected. Oil dropped because Russia and Saudi Arabia stated they would increase production due to the Iran situation. Period.
For the last ten years, Italy’s growth rate has been virtually stagnant. Wage growth has dropped significantly. And forecasts are relatively gloomy, which is why The Establishment was voted out! Democratically.
Hillary continues to whine that she coulda/woulda won if the US had the same Constitutional Amendments that Italy instituted regarding redistricting, which would have paved the way for Constitutional reforms that could have given her a monarchial US.
With Merkel in charge of the EU, and Hillary at the helm of the US, the Masters Plan might have worked. But Trump altered that course – not just in the US, but he gave hope to EU countries as well, which is making a muck of the New World Plan of Action. Not to be deterred, the age old warring of “Coup” apparently has just been instituted in Italy in an attempt to regain lost ground…
