The Italian general elections are coming up on March 4, 2018, and at issue is Italy's sovereign debt, a whopping 134% of GDP, the immigration crisis, the future of the Eurozone, and, incidentally, the future of Mad Madam Merkel's coalition efforts:

Berlusconi, Italeave and How to Checkmate Germany

Merkel Is Forming A Coalition With The Wrong Party

  1. Democracy is a theatrical scam, to divert attention from the hidden hand behind. Party system is masonry controlled smoke and mirrors. Political compromise is the gangrene of lies.

    Double sphinx of politics places two mirrors left and right, that face each other, to create an optical illusion of endless variations. Caught up in a room of mirrors, reason goes astray.

    Bureaucrats get a dog biscuit from the hand of their masters, whose overlord – the dark ring lord – rules them all. Doomsday is exposure into the fire, where imperial ring was forged millennia ago.

    There is no political solution. Only religion of truth can undo what was done. The king of kings is the caretaker of Europe, and that is to pledge allegiance, in faith towards kingdom of heaven (the Rune system).

      Loved your

      from the hand of their masters…

      I’m relatively sure they earn those biscuits by handling the daily business, and assuring creditors and other parasites ,that Europe is still a very viable host.

    2. Nice one A. Thru all this detail it occurred to me that italian n german elections don’t seem as diebold pooched as ussa. Got me wondering how the puppetmasters have kept their puppets well strung. Thanks 4 the sanity check.

  2. The Italian public has had a couple of years to look at Greece being slowly dismembered, as private interests obtain everything of value in a ‘fire sale’ atmosphere. The Italian public knows they are next, if things continue in their present course.

    The Troika wanted to make an example of Greece, in order to frighten the other ‘southern flank’ EU nations. Ironically, they have made such a good example of Greece that the Game is fully visible. Italian voters may decide they want a different Game…

  3. The centre-right grouping of parties is expected by most pollsters to win a relative majority in the March elections. The left is also widely expected to lose the regional elections being held on the same day in the Lazio region, which includes Rome.
    There is certainly widespread discontent about the Euro, Brussels, immigration and Merkel’s Germany, expressed most incisively by Salvini’s League (the electoral symbol has dropped the word “Northern” to turn it into a national party). Up to a recently the 5 Star Movement appeared to spearhead the anti-Euro line, but Di Maio, very near to globalist positions, has now been brought to the forefront of that rather amorphous movement. Which decides its policies on the basis of on-line votes allegedly cast by its website members with no external auditing.
    The League aspires to get more votes than Forza Italia, but even if they don’t they will impose a significant correction to the globalist line in Berlusconi’s party.
    A proviso about the “debt crisis”; in this case we are in the world of central-bank created money, so the general population, while “owing” huge per capita quotas of the public and private debt, are victims and not guilty of some misdemeanour. The idea that Italy, Greece etc. have been “living beyond their means” is the meme launched by the German banking oligarchy (so must softer on the US “debt crisis”). Now, however, more and more people are starting to look into this topic, though mass media and most politicians try reject any such discussion (another taboo issue is the German push towards a centralised European military).
    The Italian banks, again within the context of money as the issue of debt, are in a poor position, but then so is Germany’s largest bank.
    All in all, positive changes seem to be coming in Europe as the existing system proves increasingly untenable.

  4. Dr. Farrell,
    Just a quick comment. Salvini is a far right Northern Leaguer. I don’t know if I didn’t hear carefully you if you flew thru that part in your video quickly, but I thought you had suggested that he was the head of the Five Star movement, which is anti EU but very much a left wing techno-utopian movement and is headed by Di Maio (who is their candidate for Prime Minister) since their founder Beppe Grillo cannot legally stand for the job due to a previous criminal conviction. They have been a little muted on immigration in the same way Corbyn has been in the UK.

    This anti globalist wave of populism we are seeing in the western world has a right wing and a left wing flavor to it. On the right, you have Trump in the US, Brexiteers in the UK, LePen in France, AfD in Germany, Wilders’ party in the Netherlands, the Swedish “Democrats” and so forth. On the Left, you have Bernie in the US, Corbyn in the UK, Melencheon in France, Podemos in France, M5S in Italy, Syriza in Greece etc. One side blames immigration and globalization and the other blames cartellization of capital and globalization, but they both agree the post-1980 neoliberal order isn’t working for them any longer.

    How they ever bought into this, no sovereign nation currency, is beyond me. Of course, the transnational have no allegiance except to more power/money. If they believe it means that, then selling one’s country down the drain is just a simple matter of negotiations.
    As far as the immigration goes, that is another purposed scapegoat. Granted, it is deadly to what really matters: culture; but, it was introduced into the deck to act as a bargaining chip later in the game.
    What’s going to get really interesting is when the people begin waking up. Greeks lost out because they believed and honored the political system. What happens when the vast majority of the people no longer believe in, nor honor the system – and actively start to take it down?
    Either their leaders do it; or they take matters in their own hands.

  6. I mostly agree with this analysis but I think Berlusconi could well turn out to be the EU’s and Germany’s worst nightmare. I think he has many qualities, but magnanimous is not one that comes first to mind (vain and flamboyant are tied for the blue ribbon).

    The trioka tossed him out using a trumped-up sex scandal (seriously, a sex scandal unseating an Italian politician?!) to put in their Golden Sacks golden boy Renzi, who didn’t last that long on the throne, now did he?

    I suspect this election is Berlusconi’s revenge; he’s now 81, rich as ever, not at all in the best of health, and now gets to play Godfather, lurking in the shadows. He has soft-pedaled everything so far, but somehow I suspect he is holding quite the grudge against the Brusselcrats still in power — and who knows? He might actually decide to do something for Italy, for once.
