Bankers' Solidarity in Action!

European Solidarity? Nein, Bankers’ Solidarity!

After many years of bad debt and poor governance, Greece still finds herself in a rather precarious financial situation. Her week government led by Alexis Tsipras' "socialist" party has gone from bad to worse where decision making is concerned, accepting bad debt after bad debt while refusing to take the necessary steps to address their currency shortage, namely leaving the Euro. A third "bailout" package, carefully put together by the king-makers at the European Central Bank (ECB) and International Monetary Fund (IMF), and thought to be worth an eye-watering €8.5bn, has recently been agreed. The country's poor financial situation has taken its toll; 23.1% of Greeks find themselves to be unemployed (although ironically, this figure is actually seen as a marked improvement on the 30% ...

Worrying: MEPs Publish EU Army Dossier

Worrying: MEPs Publish EU Army Dossier

MEPs Have Published Plans For A Fully-fledged EU Army That Could Be Deployed By Brussels WITHOUT Member States' Prior Approval In a development that many across the continent will find concerning, European MPs have published a dossier that sets out plans for an integrated EU army. Ironically, the militaristic plans were drawn up by the liberal ALDE (European Alliance of Liberals & Democrats) grouping, led by Brexit negotiator-in-chief - and chronic Anglophobe - Guy Verhofstadt. The plans state that a combined land, sea and air force would be autonomous of member states, meaning that it could be deployed directly from Brussels without prior approval of national governments. [adsense] During Britain's referendum campaign, many pro-EU politicians such as the liberal - and Ver...

Muslim Mayor Khan: "Brexit Can Be Stopped"

Muslim Mayor Khan: “Brexit Can Be Stopped!”

London's Muslim Mayor Sadiq Khan has entrenched his divisiveness with his latest comments on Brexit, claiming that the process could be "trumped" if the Labour Party commit to a second referendum. He said he was optimistic that Britain could remained tied to the European Union, but reluctantly admitted that the only way to achieve this was through the ballot box. Mr Khan told the Guardian: “For it to have credibility with the British public, there would have to be a Labour manifesto offer, because the public would say, not unreasonably, ‘Hold on a sec, we voted to leave and you’re now sticking two fingers up at us’. The very fact that a second referendum is an option is "sticking two fingers up at the public", as the London Mayor so eloquently put it. To suggest we need ...

Incumbent Politicians CAN Be Popular… Just Ask Viktor Orbán!

In the western world today, the most popularly held political position is to have a negative opinion of the incumbent government. Particularly in western Europe, there are a number of stereotypes about sitting politicians that are widely believed - and not without substance one might add. We often describe our political class as corrupt, obsolete and even self-serving, and this is certainly not without foundation. This is reflected in the opinion polls, if not at the ballot box. In the United Kingdom for instance, it is widely accepted that a sitting government will lose votes at by-elections and local council ballots, as these events tend to be a litmus test for people's perceptions of that government. This is played out regularly in the national opinion polling too, with the main oppo...

German Police set to spy on WhatsApp messages

German Police ‘Ready to Spy on WhatsApp Messages’

Leaked documents have revealed that the German police are quickly developing new tools that will enable them to spy on all private communications. According to the documents which were leaked by the Interior Ministry, the police are outsourcing this software development to private firms, thus enabling them to circumvent the somewhat murky legal waters that are associated with this issue. This latest development will see the police become able to install Trojan Horse software on mobile devices. Specifically, this will allow them to bypass the end-to-end encryption used by messaging services such as WhatsApp and Telegram by hacking directly into the citizens' phones. [adsense] Campaigners are rightly pointing out that this is currently against German federal law, which currently ...

Poland

The Truth About EU-Poland Row

Over the course of the last week, Poland has once again found herself the victim of frenzied verbal attacks from the globalist pawns at the European Union. The technocrats in Brussels have even threatened what the media have called the "nuclear option" in reference to Article 7 of the Lisbon Treaty, a punitive clause which can withdraw some or all of the rights of member states in light of a "serious breach" of EU law and regulation. The Polish State's latest 'crime' in the eyes of the European Elite is a piece of legislation passed into law last week, which gives the president powers to remove and replace supreme court judges. The EU political class view this as a dismemberment of the separation between the legislative and judicial branches of government, giving too much power to the ...

Merkel: "No Upper Limit on Migrants"

Merkel: “No Upper Limit On Immigration”

Seemingly not content with fuelling the destruction of Europe, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has doubled down on her disastrous migration policy by declaring that there will be no upper limit to the number of migrants entering Germany. The comments came as part of a television interview, in which the Chancellor discussed political topics in the context of the country's upcoming federal election, which is to be held on 24th September this year. The host referred to comments made by Horst Seehofer, the president of the CDU's Bavarian sister party (CSU, Christian Social Union), which implied the Bavarians could refuse to enter into a coalition after the election unless an upper limit on migrant numbers is set. [adsense] Seehofer has been openly critical of the Merkel regime...

Terrorist Group ANTIFA Lay Siege to Hamburg

You'd be forgiven for thinking it's 1917, but the level of violence and destruction by the far-left terrorist group Antifa in Hamburg, far surpasses the mindless aggression of their communist forerunners a century earlier. Under the pretence of protesting against the G20 summit, Trump and capitalism, black-clad, middle-class students and the unemployed have rampaged through the suburbs of Hamburg, burning cars and smashing shop windows. [caption id="attachment_2924" align="aligncenter" width="929"] Black-clad, terrorist thugs of Antifa[/caption] Late in June, communist groups had announced a demonstration which they had dubbed 'Welcome to Hell', with the promise that there would be chaos and fire. The police department issued a warning, not to the far-left, but to ordinary citizen...

Opinion: Don’t Conflate Statism With ‘The Establishment’

In terms of objections to certain forms of government and political theory, one argument that I find too often is this notion that "the state" is always a force of evil. This is of course the territory of libertarians and minarchists, who argue that any political body that holds power in a nation is a negative force, so therefore the state should be restricted to having as few responsibilities as is possible for a country to be maintained. This argument goes hand in hand with the concept of free markets, as the conception is generally that the state spends money badly, taxation is robbery and that individual freedom is based solely around how much autonomy one has with regards to one's own hard-earned money. [adsense] The issue with this objection to the state is that the proponents ...
