BREXITS AND SWEXITS: THE EU IN TROUBLE

BREXITS AND SWEXITS: THE EU IN TROUBLE

As I noted earlier this week, it has been a week of geopolitical news that has left my email articles folders failry well stuffed to thegills with articles of world-goings-on that has made final selection of stories difficult, but there have been two developments in Europe, each with their own indications that the EU, as currently constituted, is in deep trouble.

A word about that phrase, "the EU, as currently constituted" is in order before we proceed, for it is that current constitution that has two of Europe's oldest demcratic nations, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland, reconsidering the whole venture. As I attempted to show in my recent book The Third Way, the current sand very un-democratic structure of the EU, which  vests all real decision-making power in the hands of a few un-elected "commissioners" and bureaucratic regulators. This mirrors in many detailed ways the plans of the wartime Nazis for precisely such a post-war "European federation,", where real power was to be vested in precisely such a set of "comissioners" (think of them as Reichkommisaren and Gauleitern) who would represent the Grossraumkartel (large space cartel) of the giant German and Italian combines such as I.G. Farben, which, with the then Reichswirtschaftsminister (Reich Economic Minister) Dr. Walhter Funk, jointly sponsored a study, published in Berlin in 1942, of precisely how to establish such a Germany-dominated "federation." Additionally, I pointed out how Nazi jurist Dr. Walter Hallstein and other legal thinkers also added details to this structure. As I pointed out in that book, the EU bears an uncanny resemblance to these designs, and, it should be noted, Dr. Hallstein became a prominent eminence grise to several post-war West German Chancellors, from Dr. Adenauer to Willi Brandt. CDU or SDP, Dr. Hallstein was there to make sure the "plan" moved forward.

Britain, as always, was the constant spoiler of these ambitions (let it be recalled that it was Great Britain that exposed the 1953 Nazi Naumann coup attempt against Adenauer), Lady Maraget Thatcher's Government being the first to strongly voice concerns about the whole project, but with British concerns continuing down to our own time, and demanding a referendum on whether to stay in the EU or leave. THe driving issue here, for most Britons, has been that first voiced (and one needn't add, strongly voiced) by Mrs. Thatcher: how would the EU institutions impact on long-standing and deeeply-rooted English institutions of freedom and law? And the answer was, and is, "adversely". Under the current EU arrangement, no national court supercedes the EU courts, which again, are pprofoundly un-democratic institutions.

But, the news out of the United Kingdom for Brexit advocates has taken a sudden and dramatic turn for the worse, with the assassination of a promient pro-Brexit MP, as these storis - shared by several readers of this website from the Uniited Kingdom - show:

British MP Assassinated as Tensions Rise over BREXIT

I ave been arguing for some time that a Brexit might not be as dire to Great Britain economically as many have been arguing. For one thing, it would free Britain from th choking dictatesand chhoking regulatory bureaucraccy that the EU has become. This would position Britain effectively to pursue its own agenda with the emerging Chinese-Russian silk road projects with greater efficiency  and `effectiveness. For another, it would remove Britain from beneath the thumbs of the EU's subservience to Washington's gllobalists. It should be remembered that the EU was as much a project sanctioned by people such as Averrill Harrriman and Allen Dulles, as it was of Walter Hallstein and a dream of the Nazis for the simple reason that it would be much easier for the USA to dominnate and influence a bureaucratically controlled "federation " than a multitude of indeppeendnt powers. Nonne of this, in spite of the "special relationship" between London and Washington, is in the long term economic or security interestts of Britain. The British know this too, that the political class in the USA is deeply sick, as their op-ed piecce in the Economist last year complained, running Jeb Bush and HIllary Clinton only serves to indicate how calcified and corrupt that class has become. Prime Minister Cameron's "logic" as been that if a Brexit occurs, it will weaken Britain's ability to neegotiated a modificcation of EU structure. I would arguue the reverse, thatt a strong and independent Britain would me an ameliorating force in an institution that looks increasingly like it is being run from the board rooms of the Bundesbank and Deutschebank than even Brussels.

But Britaiin is not the onl country leaving the EU project. Switzerlaand, which once wanted in, has withdrawn its application in a big "No thank you":

Switzerland withdraws longstanding application to join EU

What's the bottom line here? It seems to be this:  in spite of decades of  propaganda no on how wonderful it all it all is,  no one really likes the idea of unelected bureaucrats, who represent the interests of the 1%, determining everything. In short, that old 1942 plan is beginning to unravel, and it will continue to do so, unless real people, and not just the 1%, have a real voice in real democratic institutions.

See you on the flip side...

  1. The first shot across the bow was Iceland withdrawing its application and joining with Norway in a strategic common relationship with the bureaucratic dictators in Bruxelles. Clearly, the UK to fall into that kind of relationship with Norway and Iceland which would be positive for the fisheries industries in Scotland that had been completely ruined by EU regulations. The very quiet Danish conversations with Norway and Iceland should also not be missed.

    I had to laugh at the SNP in Edinburgh making noise about a 2nd Independence referendum. Everyone and their brother knows that Scottish voting dating from the Orkneys, the Shetlands, Aberdeenshire, and the Hebrides was fake as fake could be. So if Miss Edinburgh-SNP wants another referendum she should watch her back flanks because the Orkneys, the Shetlands, and Aberdeenshire would rather be part of Norway than a despotic SNP-controlled Scotland … (and then there is that bit of very suppressed data set that people throughout the Hebrides would rather be legally connected to Northern Ireland if the SNP managed to get their independence referendum passed).

    1. I had kept a wee broadsheet in Scots Gaelic from the last Scots Referendum that presented a common strategy for the Shetlands, Orkneys, Inner, and Outer Hebrides noting the strength of support in Aberdeenshire for political union with Norway rather than Edinburgh. There was also a very sharp barb stating the Islanders would all get a better and fairer deal from the “mess” in Belfast than the “hen rule” in Edinburgh with its pretensions of “home rule”.

      My Finnish is not exceptional, but I did manage to read an interesting article about Finnish talks with the Danes and the Baltics about forming a “compact” with each other and with hope for a similar agreement with UK, Norway, and Iceland to augment or replace the EU non-democratic treaty structure and dictatorial regulatory bureaucracy. Then on another page I read of .. conversations … between the Finns and Hungarians and the Poles. Facinating.

  2. Technocratic rule of the unaccountable unelected.
    Is that dystopian nightmare the choice of the unelected 1%?
    The people won’t hear a discouraging word about it from their ostrich talking heads, buried in the bureaucratic-soup of tpp-ttip-tisa – loose your freedoms ASAP.
    And they do this with the ever tightening sinews of a worldwide debt anaconda squeezing the…

  3. Whether people are waiting for a savior I doubt that. They have better things to do with their lives only the over schooled and the pseudo educated think(dream) that. The European Union was dodgy and a house of cards from it’s inception this newest assassination of a MP has the odor of a mob hit to enforce a extortion-protection racket.

  4. The European union with or without the UK is doomed as is the euro. The power players who thought a united states of europe could actually work German dominated OR NOT were utterly wrong. Too much history, too many old beefs, inbuilt genetic nationalism etc etc. Then thinking a currency could unite europe when 1 english pound sterling was worth 10,000 italian lira. nonsense. bonkers.
    In or out, its the end of the failed experiment, the Neocons Neoliberals Nazis Communists Illuminatti Masons Zionists Evangelical Jihadists (anyone else? – oh yeah, offworlders ) will have to try again….

    1. My apologies! I posted this before I saw today’s “News and Views,” where you explain that this is a computer problem and will need to wait until royalty check comes in to replace it. I can live with your typo’s, and I know your other followers can, too! 🙂

  5. After the collapse of the EU and a few more failures such as NAFTA how long before the people start clamoring for a new system to control them? And waiting in the wings is the UN, powered economically by China/allies and Russia as the new sheriff. As usual all elements of control will be safely hidden behind the scenes but with no little bothersome “sovereign” nations to worry about this time around. Too many people are looking for a savior to solve their woes and the UN will be that savior for them. It will also achieve the one world government goal.

  6. Well, according to her biographer, the Queen supposedly put her own two sense in by when she remarked to close associates at the dinner table, “give me three good reasons that Britain should stay in the EU?” He goes on to say that she remains apolitical in public, but in private she is quite vociferous regarding politics.

    1. “God save our graceous queen, long live our noble queen god save our queen..dadada – send her victorious happy and glorious long to reign over us – god save our queen.”
      Hedges her bets somewhat?

    1. Interesting. I have always suspected that the NWO would come from the East not the West, it’s how they roll. Their problem, reaction, solution strategy is wearing thin and is obvious to anyone who thinks for themselves.
      Anyone who doubts what the globalists are capable of fails to understand what trillions of stolen dollars and compartmentalized black projects can accomplish when orchestrated by a cabal with a focused goal.
      The fact that they now own all the intelligence agencies, have total control of the media, and own just about every politician is no small feat.

    2. Looks like the globalist are still pressing the delay button for now. Just wondering when these monsters press the destruction button and end this charade. Thanks for the link chimera.
