British voters are being “conned” by Brussels officials who are keeping plans for a European army secret until after the referendum, leading Tories have claimed.
Liam Fox, the former defence secretary who served under David Cameron, told The Telegraph that the ambitions showed the EU is wedded to the “dangerous fantasy” of creating a single defence force.
Another eurosceptic Tory MP said voters were being “deceived” and “hoodwinked” about the true scale of the EU’s drive to create a single army. Continue reading
Brexit leaders are thrilled President Barack Obama came out against them, because they are seeing a bounce in the polls.
Arron Banks, the British entrepreneur leading a grassroots effort to leave the European Union, said he hopes the president continues urging the United Kingdom to remain a member state, during a trip to Washington last weekend. Banks, the chairman of Leave.EU, met with government officials and think tanks to gain support for “Brexit,” the movement to leave the European Union, when the U.K. votes on the EU referendum on June 23.

Whether Russia is part of the scheme or not remains to be seen. However, one thing is certain (and gets hammered in a lot here), is that The United States of Europe is under construction. You are looking at the world’s next superpower, and perhaps lone superpower. The economic is already there, and likely why Germany wants its gold back. It needs it to solidify the economic foundation of its EU superstate. All this is Germany, the dominant force of Europe under the guise of an EU/United States of Europe.
America is suicidally fading away and will go into the dustbin of history if it doesn’t change its act very quickly — and that’s if it isn’t too late already, which all signs point towards. It continues in its attempts to solve a fatal moral crisis with political solutions while turning a blind eye to God, the only solution that can change this. God is not obligated to protect a nation if that nation kicks Him out, which is exactly what America has done.
While people seem to think China will rule the world, or Russia, that’s not likely the case as no one trusts either of them. Russia is also one of the main reasons, or threats rather, that this project is being undertaken in the first place. An alliance, as previously mentioned is not out of the question either since history repeats itself. The last time Germany entered into pacts with Russia, it ended up in the two bloodiest wars the world has ever seen.
With a Donald Trump presidency, you’d also see this European project speed up as he wants to either remove or replace NATO, which will give Russia their dream for conquering Europe — be it without a shot being fired or carpet bombing as far as Poland and turning it dust within 30 minutes before NATO can even get their military fatigues on.
You can find years of documentation on this subject within Global Geopolitics under the following categories:
The late Margaret Thatcher was fully correct when she stated that Europe has become anchored to renewed German dominance instead of Germany being anchored to Europe.
(TRUNEWS) The Former head of British troops in Afghanistan says the eurozone’s elites “ultimate plan” is to form an EU army out of the bloc’s 28 member states.
Retired British Army Colonel Richard Kemp — who formerly worked for the UK Joint Intelligence Committee — said this move would greatly undermine the supremacy of NATO and significantly weaken UK defenses.
“If we left the EU, we would undermine the EU’s ultimate plan of forming an EU army, and that is exactly what they are going to be doing,” Kemp told the Daily Express.
As President Obama winds up his farewell tour of Europe, it is appropriate to consider the broader implications of the brouhaha he created in Great Britain. At a joint press conference with Britain Prime Minister, David Cameron, President Obama defended his intrusion into British politics in taking sides on the controversial and divisive Brexit debate. In an op-ed, Obama came down squarely on the side of Britain remaining in the European Union — a decision I tend to agree with on its merits. But he was much criticized by the British media and British politicians for intruding into a debate about the future of Europe and Britain’s role in it. Continue reading
The EU believes the lorry levy breaches the bloc’s equal treatment rules as it simultaneously lowered excise duty for British trucks – effectively, says Brussels, penalising foreign vehicles driving on UK highways.
In a letter earlier this month to German transport minister Alexander Dobrindt, EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker’s chief of staff Martin Selmayr expressed his “concerns” about the legality of the British model under EU law. Continue reading
BARACK Obama was last night condemned for trying to “blackmail” Britain into remaining in the EU.
The US President warned the UK would be “at the back of the queue” for a trade deal with America if it quit Brussels.
But his threat provoked outrage and scorn from pro-Brexit campaigners, who dismissed it as yet another scaremongering ploy from the pro-EU lobby.
Mr Obama, who will no longer be in office when decisions on a trade deal are made, delivered a lecture to the British people on why he thinks it is in the UK’s, America’s and the world’s best interests for Britain to vote to stay in the EU on June 23.
CHINA has declared economic war on Britain by slapping a hugely punitive tax on high grade steel produced in South Wales.
Beijing has imposed a killer 46% levy on the high tech metal amid accusations that its deliberate over-production of steel is strangling UK production.
Chinese ministers announced the huge tax will be imposed on British exports of sophisticated “grain oriented electrical steel” which is produced in South Wales. Continue reading
The ruling follows a 2009 report by Argentina that fixed its territory 200 to 350 miles from its coast, surrounding the archipelago it calls the Malvinas.
The decision by UN bosses could have significant consequences for Buenos Aires’ claim to natural resources in the sea around the disputed island chain.
Guess who did eventually bail out Greece.
An article from 2011 with lessons to learn from for today:
A chain reaction is set in motion—and a lot of people are going to get hurt.
The date is May 11, 1931. Creditanstalt, a little-known Austrian bank, suddenly announces it can’t make its debt payments. An unstoppable chain reaction results.
Bank failure, stock market crash, mass business closures, 25 percent unemployment, trade wars, runaway inflation, multiple currency collapses, the Great Depression, World War ii. All of it began with a little-known bank in a small country in the heart of Europe.
That is history. And it is happening again.
A similar epoch-changing event may be about to occur in Europe.
What a tangled web the global geopolitical situation has become. Geopolitics and finance have always been interrelated but recently much more so. As many readers know, I have speculated we would be hit over the head with a “truth bomb” from the East and most likely from Mr. Putin himself. Just this week Britain has alleged Mr. Putin personally ordered a “hit” on an ex KGB agent for calling him a pedophile (http://nypost.com/2016/01/21/murdered-ex-spy-accused-putin-of-pedophilia/). Another story came out that Turkey shot down a NATO helicopter which made no press coverage at all in the West. Also, Victoria Nuland recently travelled to Russia and was refused an audience by Mr. Putin. This, after John Kerry had a meeting where he went into it saying “Assad must go” and came out saying Mr. Assad can stay … Why all of this now? I would simply say this reeks of desperation and also a VERY dangerous strategy to attack Mr. Putin personally. I say “dangerous” because it raises the likelihood of a response from him. Can you imagine the outrage were Russia to accuse president Obama or the Prime Minister Cameron of Britain for ordering the murder of someone who called them a pedophile? Continue reading
All signs point to an EU crumbling, however, do not take into account further integration among nations who are willing to stay in. For Europe, because of its own national security and the not-so-dependable NATO, it must and will remain together in some form or another due to the Russian threat next door. Perhaps in the future, to mitigate this threat, Russia might even join the EU bloc in one form or another. One thing is clear: The EU will burn down, but another state will rise out of its ashes: The United States of Europe.
COPENHAGEN/HELSINKI/LONDON/THE HAGUE (Own report) – Demands to halt EU expansion and even begin to scale it back are being raised in several northern and northwestern European countries. In last Thursday’s referendum, the Danish population rejected the proposal for Denmark to adopt EU domestic and judicial policies. Denmark will therefore retain its “opt-out,” obtained following its “No”-majority in a referendum on the Maastricht Treaty, in 1992. There is also little chance that Denmark will join a common EU foreign and military policy, in the near future, as favored by Berlin and Brussels. Because the single currency is perceived as the reason for Finland’s economic crisis, that country’s parliament will soon debate whether to hold a referendum on leaving the Euro zone. Great Britain will hold a referendum on exiting the EU by 2017, at the latest, with already a majority in favor, according to recent polls. In the Netherlands, demands are being raised to reduce the Schengen Zone to a “mini-Schengen.” Following the convulsions in Southern Europe, the EU project – the foundation of German global policy – is also beginning to crumble in the North.

The migrant invasion to Europe from the Middle East and Africa may be part of a left-wing plot to pack the continent with sympathetic voters, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has told Swiss magazine die Weltwoche. He also said that the British make better allies because they apply more “common sense” but argued that whether or not we are a Christian nation and continent is rarely discussed by Prime Minister David Cameron and the broader political right in Britain.
Orban, who was the first European leader to erect a strong and almost impenetrable border fence, has previously hit out at pro migrant invasion individuals and ideologues including Hungarian-American businessman George Soros, whose Open Society Foundations provide funding to almost every pro-migration activist and talking head in the English-speaking world.

Sweden used to pride itself on giving a warm welcome to outsiders. But as the refugee crisis grows, so too does its sense of injustice
When it opened 15 years ago, the Öresund Bridge was seen as a glistening symbol of the new Europe. Sweden and Denmark had been joined together by a motorway with no border controls, fusing together economies and even blurring national identities. Many Swedes in Malmö have come to relish the city’s growing reputation as a suburb of Copenhagen, just half an hour away by train. It seemed to embody many dreams about the future: a continent where national borders would come to mean nothing. That dream was shattered at noon today.
What Britain’s rapturous reception of President Xi shows about its future
Have Britain and America ever been more divided over any foreign-policy issue in the past 100 years than they are right now over China?
Consider the last fortnight. America has finally decided to confront China over its island grabs in the South China Sea. The Chinese government has responded by writing in its state media that it is “not frightened to fight a war with the U.S.” and that China must now “prepare for the worst.”
Meanwhile Chinese President Xi Jinping has just returned from his state visit to the United Kingdom, where the nation rolled out the reddest of red carpets. British officials joined their Chinese counterparts in proclaiming a “golden era” in British-Chinese relations. The Chinese state media called it an “ultra-royal welcome.”
As Australia allows for China to take over a strategic military port, Great Britain allows for its nuclear power infrastructure to be compromised.
In the first major Chinese investment in a Western nuclear facility, China’s General Nuclear Corporation (CGN) will take a one-third stake in the planned 18 billion-pound ($28 billion) Hinkley Point nuclear plant controlled by France’s EDF.
State-owned CGN will also take a two-thirds stake in the Bradwell nuclear plant east of London, where it plans to build a Chinese-designed reactor, and a one-fifth stake in a project for Areva designed reactors at the Sizewell plant.
“We will build a global, comprehensive strategic partnership between our countries in the 21st century and jointly open up a golden era,” Xi told reporters via a translator, adding that the nuclear deal was a flagship investment. Continue reading
