- ‘EU Parliament no better than banana republic’ with PR campaign (RT, Feb 8, 2013):

As eurozone leaders lock horns over the budget deal, speculation is rife the EU is set to invest millions in a PR campaign against online critics. It puts the EU Parliament on a par with so-called ‘banana republics’, MEP Nigel Farage told RT.

“The words ‘legal’ and ‘European Union’ don’t fit together. Nothing matters here, there are no rules,” says the UK Independence Party’s Nigel Farage of the EP plan to spend huge sums of taxpayer money on social network smear campaigns against those who speak out against it.

- Irish EU treaty vote threatens chaos (Telegraph, Feb. 28, 2012):

Ireland has shocked Europe with plans for a referendum on the EU’s fiscal treaty, a move that risks an unprecedented fragmentation of the eurozone and a major clash with Germany.

Premier Enda Kenny said Dublin was acting on legal advice from Ireland’s attorney-general that “on balance” the fiscal compact requires a vote under the country’s constitution. “It gives the Irish people the opportunity to reaffirm Ireland’s commitment to membership of the euro,” he told ashen-faced members of the Dail.

All three major parties back the treaty but analysts say there is a high risk of rejection by angry voters in the current fractious mood. The compact gives the EU intrusive powers to police the budgets of debtor states, and has been denounced as feudal bondage by Sinn Fein and Ireland’s vociferous eurosceptics. The Irish voted “No” to both the Nice and Lisbon treaties before being made to vote again. Dublin has ruled out a second vote this time.

Remember that the Irish people had to vote twice on the Lisbon Treaty, because their first vote was ‘wrong’ and NOT in favor of the elitists’ agenda.

Elite Puppet David Cameron’s U-Turn Denies Britain EU Referendum

- Lisbon Treaty: Now EU Takes Charge Of Britain

- What part of Ireland’s ‘no’ does the EU not understand?:

Asking the Irish to vote again on the Lisbon treaty is arrogant, insulting and undemocratic

As soon as the Irish people’s ballots were counted in June, their rejection of Lisbon was treated as the “wrong” answer, as if they had been taking part in a multiple-choice maths exam and had failed to work out that 2+2=4. Now, they will be given a chance to sit the exam again, “until [they] come up with the right answer,” says George Galloway, attacking EU elitism. The notion that the Irish “got it wrong” exposes gobsmacking ignorance about democracy in the upper echelons of the EU. The very fact that a majority of Irish people said no to Lisbon made it the “right answer”, true and sovereign and final. “No” really does mean no.

- I’m quitting the Tories for UKIP, says ex-treasurer Lord Hesketh after he loses faith in the party (Daily Mail, Oct. 11, 2011):

A former Tory treasurer has defected from the Conservatives to the UK Independence Party over David Cameron’s handling of Europe.

Lord Hesketh says he lost faith in the party after the Prime Minister reneged on his promise to hold a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, the former Conservative fundraiser said he would now devote his efforts to drumming up funds for UKIP.

Before the general election, Mr Cameron gave a ‘cast iron’ pledge to hold a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty.

David Cameron, like Gordon Brown before, is an elite puppet.

President Obama has already been proven to be worse than even G. W. Bush.

Presidents or Prime Ministers are not elected, but selected.



David Cameron has now backed plans to sneak changes into the Lisbon Treaty

BRITONS have been robbed of the chance to vote on a power grab by Brussels despite promises of a referendum.

In the wake of the Lisbon Treaty fiasco, David Cameron vowed Britain would never again give away powers to Brussels without first holding a referendum.

In a spectacular U-turn, however, Mr Cameron has now backed plans to sneak changes into the Lisbon Treaty without triggering referendums across Europe.

It is a significant victory for German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who was last night dining with the Camerons at ­Chequers, the Prime Minister’s country retreat in Buckinghamshire.

At the Council of Ministers, Europe’s prime ministers and presidents backed “a limited treaty change” to deliver tighter fiscal discipline across the EU and a ­permanent bail-out fund for members of the eurozone. The change will create an “economic government” for Europe.

Nigel Farage, frontrunner to lead the UK Independence Party, said: “It is one of the most massive power grabs they have ever attempted but because it is so ­devilishly complicated this might just sneak through by default. But make no mistake, these are draconian powers and without a shadow of a doubt this should trigger a referendum.”

Leaders are petrified that any change to the EU treaties would spark referendums in the UK, Ireland and the Netherlands.

In Britain the EU Referendum Campaign has been launched calling on the ­Government to give the country the vote denied when Gordon Brown ratified the Lisbon Treaty. More than 5,000 Sunday Express readers signed up after we highlighted the campaign last week.

Commentary:

This unconstitutional bailout is not about rescuing the euro or helping the people of Greece.

It is a bailout for the banksters, looting the people (especially the Germans):

- Former Bundesbank Head Karl Otto Pöhl: Bailout Plan Is All About ‘Rescuing Banks and Rich Greeks’:

Added to this is the fact that, against all its vows, and against an explicit ban within its own constitution, the European Central Bank (ECB) has become involved in financing states.

France’s Europe Minister Pierre Lellouche: Eurozone Bailout Violates EU Laws:

In an interview with the Financial Times, Pierre Lellouche laid bare the French government’s conviction that the emergency stabilisation scheme agreed earlier this month amounted to a fundamental revision of the European Union’s rules and a leap towards an economic government for the bloc.

“It is an enormous change,” Mr Lellouche said. “It explains some of the reticence.

It is expressly forbidden in the treaties by the famous no bail-out clause. De facto, we have changed the treaty,” he added.

- Germany’s Bundesbank: Greek Rescue as a Threat to Economic Stability and Probably Illegal; Calls IMF ‘Inflation Maximising Fund’:

The Bundesbank document offers a withering critique of the deal agreed by EU leaders two weeks ago, saying the plan had been cobbled together without consulting central banks and will lead to monetisation of debt. “It brings problems in respect to stability policy that should not be underestimated.”

The joint rescue between the IMF and the EU would turn the Bundesbank into a “money-printing machine” for the purchase of Greek bonds, according to Rundschau. This would breach the EU’s ‘no-bail clause’.

Is there a solution for Greece? Sure:

- German Professors Challenge Greek Bailout Legislation, Declare it Unconstitutional

- Max Keiser on Greece: ‘The IMF is a Financial Mafia’

- The Solution For Greece (Max Keiser, Matt Taibbi and Catherine Austin Fitts)

And the banksters, not the people, would have to eat the losses.


German High Court Considers Euro Bailout: Is the Rescue Package Constitutional?

german-high-court-considers-euro-bailout
Protesters in Athens: If Germany’s highest court issues a temporary injunction on loan guarantees, it could push Greece to the brink.

A handful of challenges have been filed in Germany’s high court against the 750 billion euro bailout package agreed to in Brussels. The government in Berlin argues the deal was a “political statement” and not a binding international agreement.

There are many who raised their eyebrows when the European Union agreed last month to create a €750 billion war chest to help prop up the euro. Many were concerned that it might violate EU rules on direct aid among member states.

In Germany, however, the package has attracted the attention of the country’s highest court, the Federal Constitutional Court. It is currently considering whether to issue a temporary injunction against the country’s contribution to the planned rescue package. If the court rules to issue the injunction, it could temporarily ban the government in Berlin from activating German credit guarantees — at least until the court can rule on their legality.

SPIEGEL reported this weekend that Andreas Vosskuhle, president of the Karlsruhe-based Constitutional Court, sent a letter to the chancellor, her ministers, parliament, the German president, all state governments, as well as the European Central Bank and Germany’s central bank, the Bundesbank, requesting statements addressing a request for a temporary injunction. The request was made by Peter Gauweiler, a member of the German parliament with the conservative Christian Social Union, the sister party to Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats.

His request hardly comes as a surprise. In 2009, Gauweiler filed a suit against the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty, which set the stage for wide-ranging European Union reforms, in what became a partially successful challenge. The court ruled that the German parliament must play a greater role in Germany’s decision-making at the EU level — a ruling that could have wide-reaching implications for future European integration.

Multiple Constitutional Challenges

Addressing Gauweiler’s latest constitutional complaint, Berlin said that if the injunction is issued, it could directly result in a Greek bankruptcy. The government also stated that the euro rescue package agreed to by the EU member states in Brussels was “not a legally binding international agreement, but merely a political statement.”

In addition to the complaint by Gauweiler, Constitutional Court officials have confirmed that three further cases have been submitted against the euro rescue package. At some point this week, German constitutional lawyer and financial expert Markus Kerber and his supporters also plan to submit a constitutional complaint. Kerber and his co-plaintiffs want the court to determine whether the German law passed by the Bundestag approving the euro bailout complies with the country’s own constitution. The legislation covers Germany’s share of the bailout, roughly €148 billion in credit guarantees.

The EU President has NOT been elected. Herman Van Rompuy was appointed by the heads of the 27 EU member states.


Germany and France have tabled controversial plans to create an “economic government of the European Union” to police financial policy across the continent.

They have put Herman Van Rompuy, the EU President, in charge of a special task force to examine “all options possible” to prevent another crisis like the one caused by the Greek meltdown.

His mission will be to draw up a master-plan for the best way to oversee and enforce economic targets set in Brussels as a key part of a bail-out package for Greece.

The options he will consider include the creation of an “economic government” by the by the end of the year. Continue reading »

EU CHIEF VOWS TO RUN OUR ECONOMY FROM BRUSSELS

Barroso plans to grab power

EUROPE’S chief bureaucrat last night provoked fury after threatening to use the “full force” of the Lisbon Treaty to impose economic control over every EU nation.

European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso claimed that financial stability was so critical that sweeping new powers were needed for Eurocrats in Brussels to meddle in the economies of all EU members.

But his threat sparked an angry backlash from critics of an ever- growing Brussels bureaucracy.

It raised fears that the EU – under unelected (!) new President Herman van Rompuy – is planning a power grab.

Timothy Kirkhope, the leader of Tory Euro MPs, said: “The idea of compulsory economic policies is deeply disturbing. It reflects a very old fashioned ‘command and control’ approach which does not solve problems of the 21st century.” Mats Persson, director of think-tank Open Europe, said: “Economic growth cannot be forced from the centre.

“The unelected Commission is seeking to gain power over one of the corefeatures of democratic politics, deciding how a country’s economy is run. This has no public support and runs the risk of being hijacked by narrow political interests.” Continue reading »

From the article:
“By acting in this way, the EU has crossed a subtle line. It is no longer legitimate.”

If you have a spare evening, read the Magna Carta. It is a restraining document. What leaps out from the pages of Langton’s text is the intent to protect subjects from overweening authority (in this case, Norman-French despotism), by restoring ancient freedoms.

magna-carta

I have a copy dated MDCCLXVI (1766) left to me by my father, and to him by his father. The customary law is Saxon, Celtic, even Visigoth.

“All men in our Kingdom have and hold the aforesaid liberties and rights, well and in peace, freely and quietly, fully and wholly, for ever.”

“No free man shall be taken or imprisoned, or outlawed, or exiled, or in any way destroyed, unless by lawful judgment of his peers.”

“No constable or bailiff shall take another man’s corn or chattels without immediate payment, nor take any horses or any man’s timber for castles.”

“Any one may leave the Kingdom and return at will, unless in time of war, when he may be restrained for some short space for the common good”.

Here is a nice one, as the Square Mile falls under the control EU authorities with “binding powers”.

“The City of London shall have all its ancient liberties and free customs.” Merchants should be free from “evil tolls”.

The founding texts of the English Constitution – charter, petition, bill of rights – have one theme in common: they create nothing. They assert old freedoms; they restore lost harmony. In this they guided America’s Revolution, itself a codification of early colonial liberties.

Europe’s Constitution – the Lisbon Treaty, as we know it – began as a sort of Magna Carta. EU leaders agreed at Laeken in 2001 that the Project needed restraining after Danes and Swedes rejected EMU, the Irish rejected Nice, and youth torched Gothenburg in anti-EU riots.

People do not want Europe inveigling its way into “every nook and cranny of life”, they said. Needless to say, insiders hijacked the process. A Hegelian monstrosity emerged. The text says much about the heightened powers of EU bodies, but scarcely a word to restrain EU bailiffs and constables.

The Charter of Fundamental Rights – legally binding in the UK as of Tuesday, when Lisbon came into force – asserts that the EU has the authority to circumscribe all rights and freedoms.

The text was modified after I threw a tantrum in the Daily Telegraph during the drafting process, comparing it to the “general interest” clause used by Fascist regimes to crush dissent in the 1930s.

Article 52 now reads: “Subject to the principle of proportionality, limitations may be made only if they are necessary and genuinely meet objectives of general interest recognised by the Union.”

Don’t be misled by this inverted wording. What it states is that the EU may indeed limit rights in the “general interest”. In other words, our Magna Carta has been superceeded.

It is the European Court (ECJ) that decides what is “proportional” or “necessary”, and it cannot be trusted. The ECJ behaves like the Star Chamber of Charles I, as I learned following three cases where it rubber-stamped the abuse of state power against whistleblowers Bernard Connolly and Marta Andreasen, and German journalist Hans-Martin Tillack.

Ireland could have stopped the ‘New World Order’:

- What part of Ireland’s ‘no’ does the EU not understand? (Guardian) (!!!)

But:

- Ireland Votes 67% In Favor Of Lisbon Treaty -Final Count (Wall Street Journal)

(I am of course not blaming the Irish people for how they voted. After their first vote on the Lisbon Treason Treaty they were real heroes in my eyes. The only ones with brains in the EU. This madness should have been stopped a long time ago.)

Now we have an unelected Bilderberg puppet EU President:

- EU President Herman Van Rompuy Announces 2009 as ‘First Year of Global Governance’ (BBC)

It is not that the people are powerless, but that they are not thinking for themselves, acting like a dumb, fear driven herd of sheep in total survival mode. Such behavior assures only one outcome: The people will get slaughtered by the elite.

“What good fortune for governments that the people do not think.” - Adolf Hitler

Unelected EU President Herman van Rompuy

(Daily Express) FAT cat Eurocrats celebrated a “shameful” new era of Brussels domination last night with a ­lavish ceremony and fireworks – all at the hard-pressed taxpayers’ expense.

New EU President Herman van Rompuy and Brussels chiefs toasted victory as the Lisbon Treaty, which moves vast swathes of power from Westminster, ­became law across the EU at midnight on Monday.

Mr van Rompuy and EU foreign affairs chief Baroness Cathy Ashton were among the EU bureaucrats who cheered the landmark occasion at a glittering ceremony and banquet in the Portuguese capital.

But in Britain, angry anti-EU ­critics declared that it signalled the end of our independence after the latest massive surrender of sovereignty to Brussels.

Campaigners have pledged to fight on against the emergence of a Brussels superstate.

UK Independence Party Euro MP Nigel Farage said: “This day should go down in history as National Loss of Independence Day. We now live in a new legal order. We are just a province of a new legal entity called Europe.”

UKIP yesterday launched a national campaign for a referendum on whether Britain should quit the EU. Tory MP Douglas Carswell said: “Britain has ceased to be a sovereign country. Shamefully, the freedoms our forefathers fought for have been given away by the politicians at Westminster. We need a referendum now.”

Tory Euro MP Daniel Hannan said: “It is appalling, demeaning, disgraceful that such a thing should have been done without popular consent and in the absence of the referendum that all three parties had promised.”
