ADIOS SENOR! RAJOY OUT…

Well, it has happened. Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy is the first Spanish premier in history to lose a vote of no confidence. And for a Madrid that seemed to be successfully emulating the Swampy Corruption Policies of Washington, D.C., that's something. Indeed, according to this Zero Hedge article shared by Mr. H.B., kickbacks, or pay to play, seemingly are at the heart of Senor Rajoy's downfall:

Spanish Prime Minister Rajoy Ousted From Power; Sanchez Is New Socialist Prime Minister

As the article notes, however, the new premier is the Socialist Pedro Sanchez, leading a rag-tag coalition that was hastily thrown together for the simple purpose of ousting Senor Rajoy. In short, on the surface, nothing much has changed, because what is socialism but a swampy pay-to-play scheme,  dressed up in the glowing utopian language of Marxism which, somehow, manages always to weave a spell so powerful that it convinces people to ignore the glaring hypocrisies of it all: Bernie Sanders is a millionaire, Lenin sleeps in a dacha and is chauffeured in a limo, Congress "persons" from poor districts of LA somehow end up being multi-millionaires and somehow avoid being investigated, all the while virtue signaling everyone how very concerned and compassionate they all are. Power to the people, er, the proletariate, er... whatever.

There is, as the article notes, not much by way of a common platform for the new government, unlike the situation in Italy, where the thoughts of the new coalition government of Signor Conte are more or less spelled out in the various party platforms of the parties comprising the coalition:

Socialist Party leader Pedro Sánchez, who becomes prime minister immediately, told lawmakers that his policy goals include bolstering social policies to address problems such as unemployment and poverty levels, both of which remain high despite Spain’s strong growth. Among Sanchez' challenges will be managing the eurozone’s fourth-largest economy and dealing with internal problems such as the crisis in Catalonia.

For once, I am rather mystified at Zero Hedge's reporting here, for beneath those two lapidary sentences lies a mountain of discontent in Spain. The article does reference the nationalist aspirations of Catalonia and the Basques, and hints at one of the real issues driving politics in Spain when it mentions that Senor Sanchez wants to bolster "social policies to address problems such as unemployment and poverty levels, both of which remain high despite Spain's strong growth." Such statements seem to me to be a rather watered-down Quixotic attempt to tilt at windmills while avoiding the obvious issue that Spaniards feel: their country, like others in M. Juncker's and Mad Madam Merkel's Europe, is being overrun with "immigrants" and "refugees", from the completely different Mohammedan culture, and they refuse to assimilate (just ask Germans in Cologne, or Swedes in Malmo, or Britons in Lincolnshire, or Hungarians in Budapest, or...well, you get the idea). The consequence is that Spain's own youth cannot find jobs, and youth unemployment remains staggeringly high. The progressivist assault - if one may call it that - on the Spanish middle class actually footing the bill for all this madness has been horrendous.  And of course, Spaniards, like everyone else in Europe, have been sermonized endlessly about how they cannot complain of these policies lest they be labeled "populist" or "nationalist" or "ultra-right wing".

We all know the game plan, because it's pretty much the same everywhere.

Add to this the "underground economy" of drug-running and so on - one of the real stories behind the Catalonia nationalist aspirations - and one has a first class mess that in its major points resembles the policies of The Swamp's D.C. franchise. And that's the point: the game plan is the same everywhere: assault on the middle class, because that's the class that carries the culture and that consciously identifies with it, be that culture American, British, German, Swedish, or Spanish. Mr. Globaloney doesn't want that, because that culture is a constant reminder to him that his actions are immoral, or rather, amoral, and Italy's new coalition government is already sending that message, loud and clear, as the following article shared by Ms. K.M. indicates:

War Erupts Between Italy's Government And Soros: "You Profited From The Death Of Hundreds Of People"

Lest it be skimmed over lightly, Matteo Salvini, Italy's new Minister of the Interior and Deputy Prime Minister behind Florentine lawyer Giuseppi Conte, has announced his intentions to deport some of Italy's refugees, and Darth Soros was quick to respond with his own accusations and pay-to-play scheme:

In response, George Soros flipped out, openly suggesting that Salvini might be financed by Vladimir Putin, saying he is "very worried about Russia's influence on Europe in general and on the new Italian government."

Soros also admits in Italy's Corriere della Sera newspaper that the League's growing influence is a reflection on "Europe's flawed migration policies that imposed an unfair burden on Italy." His solution? Instead of resettling the migrants, the EU needs to pay Italy.

“It follows from the voluntary principle that the problem ... cannot be addressed by forced resettlement, but only by the EU financially compensating Italy for the migrants that land there,” wrote Soros, who also warned “There is a strong inclination in Europe to use the occasion [of the new government] to teach Italy a lesson ... If the EU follows this line, it will dig its own grave by provoking a negative response from the Italian electorate, which would then re-elect Movimento 5 Stelle and Lega Nord with an increased majority.”

No clearer statement of Mr. Gobaloney's agendas could be had for why it hates Mr. Putin so much, for the latter has made it clear, in statement after statement, that the Russian government does not accept a global order of the corporations, by the corporations, and for the corporations, nor does it or will it accept the rape of Russia either economically or culturally by western technocrats. Mr. Putin's government may be oligarchical, but it is a Russian oligarchy running the show, not one based in the Harvard Endowment. The globaloney plan, on the other hand, so far, has produced chaos, because in typical technocratic fashion it completely ignores the influence and importance of culture as the coherent matrix molding and guiding policy. Indeed, such a scheme of technocratic and corporate governance could only emerge in Western culture for specific historical reasons, and thus it is as if the Globaloneyists want it both ways: they want to export that culture abroad while tearing it down at home.  Nothing could illustrate the self-contradictory narcissistic and psychopathic insanity of people like Soros than this.

Darth Soros' comments did not go unanswered either, for they were met with a salvo from a leading economist with links to Italy's new coalition government, Claudio Borghi, who pulled no punches:

"Soros worried by the Italian government? Then it means that we are going in the right direction... We understand that those who have speculated for years on the skin of immigrants, financing NGOs and smugglers to invade Italy (sic).

"The wind has changed for [Soros] and for all those who have profited from the deaths of hundreds of people."

Indeed the wind has changed, and now Mr. Globaloney must tack against it, as Soros, with his new version of pay-to-play, appears to be attempting to do with his "we'll pay you money for the suicide of your culture" scheme. Now you can add Spain to the mix, for while it no longer commands a global empire, Spain is Europe's fourth largest economy, behind Italy's third, and that means Mad Madam Merkel's and M. Juncker's technocratic non-national vision of Europe is crumbling. The issue is cultural, and that means that while these new coalition governments in Madrid and Rome may fall, the issue will not go away.

As I said, watch Italy... and Spain.

See you on the flip side...

  1. Bilderberg summit in Turin is a great opportunity to tell the world that Venezuela, Philippens, Syria, Iran examples need to be followed. It’s time to tell STOP to te cabal, to the jew banksters, to wall street adventurism and aggressive behavior with war and proxi wars, false flag op., meddling of hundreds of nations we immediately need to tell stop to american criminal colonialism (and this is an euphemism the american behavior and that of UK and several countries and overall that of Zionists, so Israel for first are behaviors not to be longer tolerated) If ONU cannot withstand what we see everyday happening killing millions of people all around the world (to favorite corporations and banksters we must close ONU, immediately must be incinerated.
    They have thousandt of nukes and they threaten the nations that they would like to have nukes in order to defend themselves from this way of maintaining international relations that put the threat and the war in front of everything else EVER available possibility different and opposite to the wars.
    Is possible see a Sikh (as Nikky Haley false name, Nikky has full Sikh blood in her veins) in a sacred place as ONU telling bullshit everyday?
    NO, we must change! all of us.
    Western countries which permits america and UK making the worse every seen in history of last 100 years are culprit as Usa and UK in same level of criminality, also if threatened, because tha few nation which opposite that cabal risk annichikation everyday only because defending their sacre freedom to live in their countries. So european nations are same of Usa, Australia, Uk, France, Germany, and the last but the worse Israel must be faced in a trial to be put in front of their resposibilities, that’s are so many that the sentence will be secure even dubt of their culpability . we will only have to establish a condemnation with certainty of punishment. People as Mrs Clinton in killing millions of Lybians, Obama for Kosovo, we must trial all the perpetrators of mass massacres, for Iraq war (weapon of mass destruction have yet to be found since 2003), Syria war, arab spring? twin towers? (in Israel we know there are the culprits), for Hiroshima and Nagasaki it’s late, but for Afghanistan?
    For Venezuela? For almost all Africa? Yemen? Ucraina coup and all the victims?

    The international cartels certainly feared the culture of the early 1900s w/the wobblies and labor fighting for a bigger share of what wealth was being generated. A fight that later bore the fruit of the middle class. Now that was a culture worth destroying; though it took a century plus to bear that bitter fruit.

    ________________

    . . . For what it’s worth, that’s a fair assessment of related geopolitical activities. . .

    . . . There’s another grouping of geopolitical-coalition governments (sort of), . . . They are the Tigers and Dragons of the Asian east-southeast and Pacific west-southwest (the west Pacific Ring-of-Fire). . . It won’t be the first time, either, that those mentioned have been referred to and lumped together under one banner – The Orient. . . That’s where the likeness ends, though. . .

    . . . The Dragons – China, Japan, and Koreas, to start – have cultural histories that span thousands of years that rival the timeline of Egypt, or nearly so. . . The pottery of the Jomon (Japanese) is one such grouping, pushing back the dates of civilization’s beginnings to 14,000 years ago. . . There’s much more that the difficulties on the European parcel of land demonstrate besides another form of history refusing to let go because it is brought along with the indigenous folks to once again make history. . . Add migration surges and those histories to be are once again modified. . . Many academics are not up to that argument as are the indigenous folks of those regions. . .

    . . . Mandarin, for instance, may be spoken by the largest group of people on the planet further west of the Japan’s, yet many western scholars still have problems with the pictographs they did not conjure in their hallowed halls of arrogance of the Mediterranean and European regions. . . One likens the failure to observe these internal items of people that seem to be great motivators, if not part of their motivations, as a form of myopic-short-sighted-tunnel- vision that as yet lacks a remedy toward correction, if there ever will be one. . . Learning over a thousand pictograms that allows one to relate a story of sensory observations is a unique task no less important than learning Latin or Cyrillic characters or Arabic numerals, yet the actual efforts in that learning process are scarcely acknowledged, especially, of what is brought along to use them effectively . . . A very involved and convoluted learning curve in all manner and form, to be sure. . .

    Spain and Italy have interesting histories Spain was overrun by the Arabs fairly quickly. Italy was dismembered with the help of the Roman Catholic Church by stabbing the Ostrogoths in back and then preventing the Lombards from keeping Italy together. Greece is continuing being trashed. Which brings up the question who are the puppetmasters behind this circus of horrors. And this problem is worldwide and has been ongoing since the collapse and destruction of the Roman Empire.

  5. I always find it curious to observe people who try to kill a snake by whacking-about at the tail of the snake. Never seems to work, but they never seem to learn. Makes me think that they were taught to whack-about at the tail of the snake….

    My preference is to locate the head of the snake. It may be under a bush; hidden. Be thorough. Once the head is located, appropriate steps can be taken – with assured results.

    In Spain and Italy (and most of the world), there seems to be a pronounced intent to whack-about at the tail of the snake. Immigrants. Unemployment. Shrinking middle class. Unimaginable gulfs between 1%ers and 99%ers. All these and more lie along the tail. They are intended results, trickling-down from the head of the snake.

    In engineering classes (and on the job), we were always trained to find the “root cause” of a problem. Not treat the symptoms. Once you had that knowledge, symptoms were ignored; you zeroed-in to implement a true ‘fix’. Voilà! Problem (and symptoms) gone…

        Of course, I took it for granted that the link I provided above would lead d-i-r-e-c-t-l-y to the story, “Severed Rattlesnake Head Bites Texas Man, Leaving Him Needing 26 Doses Of Anti-venom,” and it does not.

      2. Yes, and that includes making sure the ‘spirit’ animating the snake is departed, before relaxing one’s guard…

      Private power abhors Public power.
      They’ve been at crosswords forever….

  6. Zerohedge, perhaps for marketing reasons, often has a double stance on monetary and financial matters, publishing articles from the private-central-banking-monetized- debt perspective (perhaps the majority) as well as from a contrary stance. The latter often include the “imminent event” theme – collapse of the dollar, rise in gold etc. The numerous articles on daily or sometimes hourly trends on the bond market seem more targeted to traders (or at least online platform amateurs with money to burn who like to feel part of “Wall Street”). While this website has some good articles – I admit that I check it at least once a day! – it does not represent a cultural milieu for transition away from the monetized debt-based medium of exchange.

    1. According to reports, this meeting will be attended by the “leftwing” President of RAI. Italy’s State-owned broadcasting corporation, Mrs. Lilli Gruber. She attended previous meetings and was tight-lipped about the events, in complete contradiction with her role as journalist. This issue is now being discussed here on social media. It will be interesting to see if she, and others, manage to pull of the secrecy trick now, given that the 5-Star movement, now in the new government, has transparency as one of its founding principles. The League Minister Salvini has spoken out specifically against Soros; it will be interesting to see if a government rep dares to prounounce that “taboo” word, “Bilderberg” and I’ll be the first to report if this happens.

    2. Wow, what a ‘coincidence’! It does make me wonder whether the location is pure happenstance, or whether the deep elite has things so well in hand that the meeting was planned there – years ago – in full foreknowledge of ‘events’ to come…

      (Remember how the 2007 or 2008 Bilderberg meeting occurred – purely by chance, of course – in Virginia, at the height of the Obama vs H. Clinton Democratic Presidential-candidate process. Both candidates were ‘unreachable’ for a few hours during that meeting. After that meeting, Hillary faded-away while Obama’s star rose. Pure chance, of course…)
