IN the past Joseph has said: "Watch Italy..."  Well, in the wake of the BREXIT vote there has been movement in Italy, and it has huge long term repercussions:

Italian senate refuses to back automatic renewal of anti-Russian sanctions

Italy Demands EU reform, warns of full collapse

    First, kudos to Putin for having the insight to hit the capitalist countries in-turn exactly where it hurts – in their pocketbooks! No amount of rhetoric would have produced results, but bottom-lines will…

    Second, in Joseph’s cited articles, there appears the mention of growing inequality. Joseph does not take this further, but I believe this is an important ‘clue’ to the unrest. The elites have so BLATANTLY ripped-off the masses that awareness is rising of true class-warfare going on. Eventually, this underlying ‘awakening’ will be the cause of much, let’s say, Restructuring in Europe and the world. The elites could have been comfortably sitting-atop the masses forever, but they just HAD to push it…

    Third, Italy had one of the strongest Communist minorities in all of Western Europe. True Communism (not Stalinism) has concerns for the working class (as opposed to Capitalism). This background ties-in with the paragraph above, as the sanctions ultimately hurt the working class (via layoffs) more than the elites with the cushy bank accounts. I suspect this ‘political chemistry’ is one cause for the Italians taking action…

    I wasn’t even going to make a comment till the wen page went poof.
    Then the comment went poof very near completion.
    I’m reminded of Dr. Farrell and his videos giving him trouble; not to mention the current typo/computer interference.
    This is nothing compared to that. As I was writing:
    What the countries need to do is get their respective sovereignties back in place. They need to nationalize their banks[Public Banks]. They need to STOP capital flight from their borders. Enforce strong regulatory measures.
    Just like the 1913 FEDE captured the USA through privatizing the Nation’s issuance of currencies, the European Union did basically the same[w/o reserve currency muscle]

    The little PIGS’ees[Portugal, Italy, Greece, Spain] went to the European Market and are now wee wee weeing all the way home to their bankrupted countries & homes.

      None of the crisis are wasted as they are being engineered by design. This is economic warfare; class warfare and its time to wake up and get your country’s Political Power Back in shape by knocking out the Economic Power that is burying your public in debt. Your being consumed by it and being placed in debt peonage. The to be slaves need to get smart pronto.

    The non-productive & counter-productive EU, Euro, anti-Russia sanctions & unipolarism are toast — sooner or later (probably sooner). Viva Italia!

    Ok, so Bayer (the Germans) want to buy Monsanto to control the GMO market, whilst Italy and France want to stop automatic EU sanctions against Russia, who will sweep in and claim all the ‘I dont want GMO’ markets.. and recently Monsanto managed to overturn a French ruling banning their products not long ago..” ” its in french but it means that Roundup was SUPPOSED to be banned from 30 june, but the European Commisionners… decided that they’d allow it to be sold for another 18 months.. which the French arent happy about.. they want to ban it outright.

    Whilst recently Germany recently acknowledged the Armenian Genocide as such, which promptly sent Turkey with their tail between their legs to Russia asking for forgiveness and bear hugs all round.. (with real Bears.. This IS RUSSIA) Lets see that application to the EU again Mr Erdogan?

    And now there are talks to forgive Mother Crusher for annexing Crimea, with all the deaths and planes shot down, etc. etc. coming from Italy.

    Spain is being the biggest hypocrite in the world, refusing to acknowledge Scotland’s right to be heard as a European member state..Not because they think that England and Scotland have to stay united, but because if they do acknowledge Scotland’s right to independence, they will get Catalan rising up and taking all of the money out of the desert (Spain is on big giant huge desert with Madrid in the middle and Catalan, think Barcelona,(and its money and capital and business and cash and tourism). “banda d’hipòcrites”

    Just another day in the European Union..back stabbing, blood, passion and lies.. Everything working as it should be. I have no idea why everyone keeps thinking that it’ll fall to pieces.. the Nazi’s wont let it happen, they finally have what they wanted.

    I’m off to buy bit coins and a secure server with its own solar and nuclear powered generator.. Personally, I think that Europe can only survive if they DO make one super-state with one external border, controlled by a centralised police and DEMOCRATICALLY elected governement.. go back to the start. Greek Democracy, one citizen, one vote and everyone HAS to be part of the senate for several months, not paid!! No more career politicians.
    Otherwise they need to pull down the Schengen Zone and the single currency..or Europe will suffer more and more false flags ‘rapegangs of immigrants’ or terrorist attacks or whatever propoganda happens to be flying around. Dont be fooled America, the Brexit vote was a vote against immigration, it was played out with Nazi style propaganda and lies and the british people wolfed it up like a Warsaw Salade.. Im ashamed to say that Goebbels would have been proud..Fear and Hate still are and will always be (it seems) powerful motivators
    Just needs a nice big gorey bloody terrorist attack in the UK for an Adam Sutler to turn up and take the reins. Something involving children and fluffy animals.

    Italy — and indeed all southern tier EU+euro countries — are being drained economically by being slowly suffocated with a de facto deutschmark renamed the “euro.” Greece has already succumbed and now Italian banks have run dry as well. Italy has a large argicultural sector which is particularly weighed down by a strong currency. Meanwhile, at the northern end of the euro seesaw, Germany, a manufacturing and exporting powerhouse, benefits from a relatively weak currency and bleeds the south dry.

    Yeah, leaving aside the Brussels politburo, that’s working out just great now, innit?

    Also, when the whole Greek debacle first began to unravel, a secret, eyes’-only analysis prepared by the Pete Peterson Institute on what to do with Greece (in a nutshell: keep them in or kick them out?) was circulated among the highest echelons of the EU, IMF, World Bank and the like.

    A few hundred copies were printed, and one of them was leaked and put online. I read it; essentially, it said that under no circumstances could Greece be allowed to leave the EU and the euro, because once out, it would reinstate a much devalued drachma which would ignite an export boom and revivify the economy, making them the envy of all the other suckers stuck in the euro goal.

    Well, there you have it. Britain got out while the getting was good, and the City banksters are rubbing their hands with glee.

    I appreciate your analysis since here in Italy, it is not always easy to appreciate these important political signals on the regional and national level, to stop austerity and to stop sanctions against Russia. They tend to be shrouded in the “fog of (media) war” among lots of contradictory statements and a strong pro-Brussels backlash.
    Nevertheless there are other elements. Recently one of the independent TV channels, “La7”, with a considerable audience, has had a regular feature expressing well-argued anti-EU and anti-Euro positions.
    There is growing grassroots support in Italy for this and it remains to be seen how this will play out, given the fragmented nature of the political scene.
    Of course the independence movement would accelerate even more if the Franco-German Reich decide to adopt Mr Soros’ suggestions/orders, read out at the European Parliament a few days ago, to impose new taxes in order to “save Europe”.

    I think what is interesting is that Martin Armstrong computer model is predicting not only a collapse of the EU but of the euro. Armstrong was ask to meet with the founders of the EU when they were first putting the single currency together. He told them that the project would not work because as long as individual countries could raise debt, most would go bankrupt as they could no longer strengthen or weaken their currencies as needed. This is of course what is happening!

    You cannot fix the EU period, it’s been a mess since it was founded, and there’s no stopping the exits. They can change all the rules they want, but down the road it will be all in vain. Zero Hedge is all over the banking problems in Italy, and imo Italy will be the first to jump.
    It only needs one major country to ever talk about bailing and the msm will be all over that. Public opinion is shifting, even though the msm is not covering it, but hey, we have the internet now to inform us of the sordid details. So Mr. EU, close it down before you get shut down.

    You forgot Portugal Joseph I think the heart of the old Western Roman Empire are sick and tired of their old enemies. The Germans though they have stabbed the Germans in the back through the centuries especially during the height of the Holy Roman Empire. Now that their adversary the Normans or more correctly the Anglo-Saxon-Jutes, Celts have voted to leave the EU issues that have been simmering have surface an have to dealt with once and for all. Now Europe has to face reality head on if the EU is to have a future.
