Denmark becomes third Nordic country to form leftist government this year

Denmark will become the third Nordic country this year to form a leftist government after Social Democratic leader Mette Frederiksen agreed terms for a one-party minority government late on Wednesday.

While the new left-leaning government is unlikely to fundamentally change Danish economic policy, Frederiksen, who at 41 becomes Denmark's youngest prime minister, has promised to increase welfare spending after years of austerity.

'Putting Much of Sicily at Risk': Locals Protest NATO's MUOS Station in Italy

Sicily is continuing its fight against NATO's MUOS satellite systems. The Mobile User Objective System is a high-frequency narrow-band military satellite communications system that consists of 4 geostationary satellites and 4 ground-based receiving stations that NATO uses to communicate and transfer commands to its submarines, fighters and drones.

One of these MUOS stations is located in Niscemi, Sicily.

Last week, on June 21, people from all over Sicily protested against the 'occupation' by military bases. More than a thousand people marched in Catania under the slogans: “US - Out of Italy, Italy - Out of NATO”, “Sicily will be better off without MUOS and Sigonella” [Sigonella - a NATO military base - Sputnik], and “Yankees Go Home.”

As The EU Refuses More Migrants, 1000s Trapped In The Balkans Are Overwhelming The System

There are numerous reports that an influx of migrants is overwhelming the already-fragile system in the Balkans. You may think this is not pertinent if you don’t live in Europe. But just like the collapse of Venezuela, the Balkan War, and the collapse of Greece, there are patterns of behavior to which attention should be paid.

Here’s a quick video with a glimpse at the situation occurring right now in Bihac, a city of about 61,000 people in the northwestern corner of Bosnia.

NATO Tells Russia To Destroy New Missile Or Face Consequences

NATO defense ministers will hold talks on Wednesday over their next move if Russia doesn't destroy a new missile system that could allow for short-notice nuclear attacks throughout Europe, which the United States has said violates the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), according to Reuters.

"We call on Russia to take the responsible path, but we have seen no indication that Russia intends to do so," said Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg at a news conference, adding "We will need to respond."

While he declined to go into further detail, diplomats have said their defense ministers will consider allowing more flights over Europe by nuclear-capable US warplanes, as well as more military training and the strategic repositioning of US sea-based missiles.

The dispute has deepened a fissure in East-West ties that severely deteriorated after Russia’s seizure of Crimea and its involvement in Syria. -Reuters

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Reuters, you pitiful;codswallop-creating intellectually-crippled dolts: your revisionist history of what happened with Crimea, and Syria are falsehoods of such immense magnitude, that I barely know where to start. So let's do this YET AGAIN!!

In light of your seeming to still collectively be suffering from an almost pathological case of SMD, (Selective Memory Disorder), let's set the way-back machine to 2014. I promise to try to use small words, which hopefully won't confuse you too terribly.

In 2014, Ukraine suffered from an alleged"color revolution" (translation: the US and Western Europe, were fomenting unrest yet again), and the duly, and legally elected President of Ukraine, President Yanukovich, was officially "thrown under the proverbial bus", and - in an election which was more crooked than is a dog's hind leg - "anointed" Poroshenko (the Chocolate King, remember?!?) as his successor because he was nominally more western-centric than was his successor.

Apparently, Reuters, it has escaped your US collective government-centric gaze, that not only did Victoria Nuland share to a private audience, and was videoed, about the US Government, having spent $5 billion dollars of taxpayers' money to subvert Ukraine Victoria Nuland's Admits Washington Has Spent $5 Billion to "Subvert Ukraine", but none other than President Obama actually confessed, on a CNN interview with Fareed Zakaria, that he was a part of a group which made such subversion possible. Washington Was Behind Ukraine Coup: Obama admits that US “Brokered a Deal” in Support of “Regime Change”

$5 billion dollars is not chump change, even in these spectacularly inflationary times. And one has to wonder, with Poroshenko having lost this years' election, if anyone of those accountable for this fiasco, have had a tiny bit of "Buyer's remorse" about getting this guy elected.

What Crimea did, which is at the heart of the UN charter, regarding peaceful self determination, when they understood that there was no viable, citizen-chosen government in Kiev, was two things; they had a free and fair referendum, asking the people of Crimea, post-coup, if they wanted to stay with Ukraine, or petition Russia to become a member of the Russian Federation; by an overwhelming majority, Crimeans voted to petition the Russian Federation to become a member of Russia, and the Russian Federation accepted their petition.

As you probably do not know this, as history was never your strong suite, collectively, but Crimea was a part of Russia, before it was annexed to Ukraine by Kruschev in 1954: The 1954 transfer of Crimea to Russia by Kruschev

Now, let's take a look at Syria, shall we?!?

Seeing just how "brilliantly" the American regime changes/occupations of Iraq; Afghanistan; and Libya were going, Russia's President Putin believed that he had a responsibility to make sure that the duly elected president of Syria, Bashar Al-Assad, had the opportunity to stay in office, and with the help of the Russian Military, Al-Assad's forces were able able to wipe out most of the US and Israeli-funded and trained jihadis there, leaving only a few small pockets of resistance.

"What, What,?!?" you say, in a gasp of faux surprise?!?, HOW CAN THIS BE?!? AREN'T THE JIHADISTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST, SUPPOSED TO BE THE US'S MOST HORRIBLE THREAT EVER?!? YES, REUTERS, YOU READ THAT CORRECTLY.

Inside Israel’s Secret Program to Back Syrian Rebels Fighters were armed and paid to keep Iranian-linked forces away from Israel’s border.How many Iranian linked forces were, and actually are, still in Syria, remains to be seen.

America Created Al-Qaeda and the Isis Terror Group

Reuters, can you please JUST STOP LYING, because I am going to embarrass the hell out of you with the facts, every damned time I can, if you continue to do this; and it has become pathological on your part, recently!!

Please count on it!!

A Fortress, Disguised as a Country

Those who think of Switzerland as a quaint land of cuckoo clocks and chocolate are sorely mistaken. To paraphrase Voltaire’s bon mot about Prussia, Switzerland is a giant fortress, disguised as a country.

I attended school and university in Switzerland. Over the decades, I kept hearing about mountains opening up to disgorge warplanes, or cliffs studded with hidden artillery. But even my Swiss friends didn’t know much about these seemingly fantastic sightings.

Fifteen years ago, I was the guest of the Swiss Fortress Guard Corps, a top-secret military outfit that operates Switzerland’s mountain fortresses. I was one of the first non-Swiss to be shown the mountain forts that guard the heart of the nation’s ‘Alpine Redoubt.’ What I was shown astounded me – and continues to do so.

Czech Republic protests: Andrej Babis urged to quit as PM

Hundreds of thousands of protesters have taken to the streets of Prague demanding that PM Andrej Babis resign.

Mr Babis is facing a criminal investigation over alleged fraud, and is also the subject of an EU conflict-of-interest investigation. He denies the allegations.

Organisers say about 250,000 people attended the rally. The figure could not be verified.

It is said to be the largest protest since the fall of communism in 1989.

Who was marching?
The protest was organised by the Million Moments for Democracy group. The movement has grown from a small student initiative into a mass movement.

What are the allegations against Babis?

The prime minister is facing a criminal investigation in the Czech Republic for alleged abuse of €2 m in EU subsidies over 10 years ago.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Czech Republic has had snap elections before, in 2016 Snap Elections, Czech Repu8blicand this may be the mechanism though which Babis might be out of a job, shortly.

Europe proves biggest spender on US arms: Report

Europe proved to be the biggest spender on US-made arms last year, and is expected to retain a devouring appetite for the weapons in near future, shows one report.

The continent accounted for nearly a quarter of the $55.7 billion in foreign arms sales that the Pentagon’s Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) handled in the 2018 fiscal year, Reuters reported on Saturday, citing US Army Lieutenant General Charles Hooper, the DSCA’s director.

Various US arms makers, who were cited by the news agency, including Lockheed Martin and Boeing, also said that the European demand for warplanes, missile systems, and other weapons was growing.

Apparently in anticipation of high demand, Washington sent an especially-ranking delegation, including Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, to the Paris Airshow this year. The expo showcased products by nearly 400 US companies.

Trump on Iran Nuclear Deal: ‘I Don’t Care About Europeans’

US President Donald Trump said in an interview that he is interested in direct talks with Iran without preconditions. At the same time, he dismissed the European point of view that Tehran is complying with the 2015 nuclear deal, arguing that it is EU business interests talking.

Trump commented on Washington’s point of view on the 2015 Joint Cooperative Plan of Action (JCPOA) nuclear deal with Iran in a Sunday interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd, saying he would accept any kind of deal with Iran, as long as it prevents Tehran from getting nuclear weapons. Trump suggested that he has no issue with the deal being bilateral or multilateral.

“I don't care which, what kind of a deal. It can be separate or it could be total,” he said.

'Bound & Sedated': How Merkel is 'Outsourcing' Germany's Migrant Problem to Italy

German Chancellor Angela Merkel's pro-immigrant stance hardly correlates with Germany's inhuman practices, Italian political observers say commenting on the recent exposure of Berlin's method's for transferring unwanted migrants back to the countries where they first entered the EU.

Germany is sending "bound and sedated" migrants back to Italy, La Repubblica, a centre-left Italian daily, broke on 15 June, adding that what's going on looks more like "human trafficking" rather than a transfer under the EU's Dublin Regulation 604/2013.

The Dublin convention stipulates that rejected refugees should be sent to "the responsible member state" i.e. the country through which the asylum seeker first entered the EU.

US Army Accidentally Invades Romanian… Wheat Field

The "invasion" took place as part of the ongoing joint drills between the Romanian Land Forces and the US Army across the Southeast European country.

Romania's Defence Ministry has confirmed that an incident took place in Ialomita County, southeastern Romania on Thursday in which several US armoured vehicles accidentally drove onto private farmland containing wheat and corn crops, causing an as yet unspecified amount of damage.

A Romanian Facebook user uploaded video footage of the incident, showing vehicles including a tank, an infantry fighting vehicle, and a Humvee support vehicle driving over the crops, leaving large tracks in the fields in their wake.

Sweden to Hire Hundreds of New Police Officers Amidst Rising Sexual Violence

Sweden will employ hundreds of new police officers in an effort to tackle a growing trend of sexual offences against vulnerable people and children.

Mats Löfving, head of the police’s national operational department, Noa, commented on the new policy saying: “For me, this is incredibly big, I think it is the biggest and most important investment I have had in my time in the police. It is perhaps the most vulnerable group that we are helping, women and children, who are exposed to violent and sexual offences,” Swedish broadcaster Sveriges Radio reports.

According to police, the Prosecutor’s Office, and the Crime Prevention Council, the number of sexual offences within relationships and where children are victims, is increasing with only half of the reported rape cases in Sweden seeing any kind of resolution.

Sweden: Strong Explosion in Vicinity of Church

Södertälje is the latest city in Sweden to see yet another explosion, with police describing the blast as being strong enough to be heard 100 yards away.

Police say that they are still uncertain as to the nature of the explosion, which occurred at around 3am on Friday in Geneta, a neighbourhood in the Västertälje district of the Södertälje municipality. Peter Asp, the officer in charge of Stockholm Police’s management centre, told Swedish broadcaster SVT: “We are trying to sort out what has happened, but before the technicians have investigated, we do not know exactly what has happened.”

“It was so strong that people some 100 metres from there have reported it,” he added, with the broadcaster noting the blast happened in the vicinity of St. Afrem’s church.

'Not Enough': US Version Blaming Iran for Tanker Attacks Questioned by European Allies

The Pentagon earlier released a video, claiming to show an Iranian patrol boat removing a mine from the side one of the tankers targeted in the Gulf of Oman as "proof" of the US accusations that Tehran is behind the attacks. The Islamic Republic has strongly denied its involvement and urged Washington to stop false flag ops in the region.

Some European governments have refused to back the US allegations that Iran was responsible for the attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman on 13 June.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas has, for instance, insisted that the footage made public by the US Central Command allegedly showing Iranian sailors removing an unexploded mine from one of the vessels' hull was insufficient to corroborate Washington's claims.

"The video is not enough. We can understand what is being shown, sure, but to make a final assessment, this is not enough for me", Maas told reporters on Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am at least somewhat hopeful, that our European allies would not believe the codswallop the US government was trying to sell them, on this painfully obvious "false flag."

Senior advisor to EU top court says Israel settlement produce should be labelled

A senior legal advisor to the European Union’s top court said yesterday that products from Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territory should be clearly labelled as such, reported AFP.

The European Court of Justice (ECJ) is “considering a request from France’s top tribunal for clarification of rules on labelling goods” from the West Bank and East Jerusalem, as well as the Israeli-occupied Syrian Golan Heights.

According to AFP, the ECJ “is not obliged to follow Advocate General Gerard Hogan’s advice, but the former Irish judge’s legal opinions are seen as highly influential in the bench’s deliberations.”

In his legal advice, Hogan said that “labels must make it clear if products originate in the occupied territories, and in particular if they come from Israeli settlements in those areas.”

EU and Russia Reportedly Agree to Ditch Greenback in Bilateral Transactions

The decision comes a few days after Russian President Vladimir Putin slammed the US dollar as a tool of pressure while speaking at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF).

Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov and Maros Sefcovic, vice-president of the European Commission for the Energy Union, have agreed to set up a working group that will deal with a transition to using the rouble and euro in bilateral payments, Russian media outlets reported, citing Siluanov’s spokesman, Andrei Lavrov.

Both sides have reportedly emphasised that the use of national currencies will be mutually beneficial, as it reduces certain risks for entrepreneurs in Russia and the EU.

Russia vows 'retaliatory strike' to new US troops in Poland

Russia says a new US military deployment to Poland announced by President Donald Trump on Wednesday would force Moscow to take retaliatory steps.

Trump told Polish President Andrzej Duda on Wednesday that he had decided to send an additional 1,000 troops to Poland to join 4,000 forces already there.

The US will also send a squadron of MQ-9 Reaper Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance drones as well, he added.

The announcement drew response from Russia, which said on Thursday that “its military is tracking these announcements very closely.”

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Moscow “is analyzing the information, and is doing what is necessary so that such steps in no way threaten the Russian Federation's security.”

Sergei Ryabkov, a Russian deputy foreign minister, said Trump's move probably reflected "aggressive" intentions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is so obvious to me, that Trump, and the US government, are leading this country into a completely avoidable war with Russia, there there are moments when I could just scream.

But screaming... will not help.

What WILL help... is logical, thoughtful pushing this government away from war, and toward peaceful ways of the US getting what it wants without firing a shot.

And Mr. President, if any of your people are out there looking at what we write, and listening to what we say; I think it is high time for the US to have a Department of Peace; and hey, if you would like this, I would volunteer to head this.

You are welcome, Mr. President!

EU blasted for ever closer cooperation with terror regime in Israel

One hundred and fifty five European researchers and academics have delivered a stinging rebuke to Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission, and Carlos Moedas, European Commissioner for Science, Research and Innovation.

In a beautifully crafted letter, they express the outrage felt throughout the world, and especially in European countries, including the UK, at the EU’s policy of rewarding the war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by Israel. Each new act of unspeakable brutality, each new onslaught of disproportionate force against civilians brings fresh privileges, fresh cooperation, fresh embraces from an enthusiastic EU elite.

Lira Slides After Turkey Vows It Will Retaliate To US Sanctions Over S-400

Two weeks ago, when Trump started rolling out tariffs left and right as a political punishment weapon for any sovereigns who presented hurdles to
Next on Trump’s train of terrifying tariffs: Turkey.

The reason is simple: Turkey's now official stance that it would proceed with concluding the Russian S-400 missile deal despite vocal opposition from both the US president and Congress. And now, Turkey, too, is bracing for what now appears inevitable as it refuses to budge on its commitment to the Kremlin.

Overnight, Turkey said it would hold firm in its commitment to honor its purchase of Russian air defense systems, warning the US that it is prepared to take "reciprocal steps" in reply to any sanctions imposed by Washington, effectively admitting that sanctions by the White House are only a matter of time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, a word, please; the more you inflame a country, in terms of attempting to punish it for its choices of weapons defenses, the more that country will turn toward other countries whose policies it feels are more in line with its own.

What you have done here, is make Turkey ripe for acquisition by a Iranian/Russian sphere of influence. So sir, I must ask: was this your design objective?!?

Or is this yet another of the "unintended consequences" of your foreign policy failures with the tariffs so far?!?

Anger over £440,000 'golden goodbye' payments to EU top dogs Jean-Claude Juncker and Donald Tusk when they stand down later this year

Brussels was accused of 'unacceptable greed' last night as it emerged Jean-Claude Juncker and Donald Tusk are in line for nearly £440,000 in 'golden goodbyes'.

The Eurocrats, whose terms finish in November, are entitled to the bumper severance payments after leaving office.

It means Mr Tusk, president of the European Council, is in line to rake in up to £288,000 for a 'transitional allowance', while European Commission chief Mr Juncker can pocket £144,000.

Side Effects of NATO's Yugoslavia Campaign: Cancer, Sterility & Mental Disorders

Aleksandra Stanic - Serbia is planning to carry out scientific research on the effects of the 1999 NATO campaign in Yugoslavia and to prove that there's a connection between the deplorable public health trends and the damage caused by NATO bombs.

According to Serbian oncologists, the number of cancer patients in the country is on the rise, and the mortality rate among them is increasing. The situation with infertility, autoimmune diseases, and mental disorders in Serbia is also alarming.

"Twenty years after the bombing of Yugoslavia, we are seeing an increase in oncological diseases, primarily systemic ones, such as lymphomas and leukaemia, and then solid cancerous tumours. And the most tragic thing is that, compared with the European average, we have 2.5 times more children with cancer".

Sweden's Electric Car Boom Is Under Threat From Power Crunch

Sweden’s ambitious plan to drastically cut emissions from transport by bringing millions of electric cars onto the road could be derailed by a lack of power capacity for new charging stations in major cities.

An increase in government grants sent sales of electric cars surging by 253% in the first five months this year, but the rally could be over before it’s really started. Demand for electricity in Stockholm and other cities is outgrowing capacity in local grids, forcing new charging networks to compete with other projects from housing to subway lines to get hooked up.

PRIME MINISTER OF POLAND SIGNS GLOBAL APPEAL TO STOP 5G TELECOMMUNICATIONS TRANSMISSION

SOURCE: GLOBALRESEARCH.CA
In what is surely an unprecedented and groundbreaking action, the Prime Minister of Poland, Mateusz Morawiecki, has personally backed an International Appeal to stop the controversial roll-out of 5G electromagnetic microwave telecommunication transmissions.

5G, a new millimetre band frequency range being introduced by the telecommunications industry worldwide, has been identified by over 2,000 scientists and 1,400 medical doctors from all over the world, as presenting a direct threat to human health, as well as to animal, insect and plant life.

There have been no safety tests carried out to ensure its safety, in spite of the fact that 5G operates at between 10 and 100 times higher frequencies than current 3 and 4G cell phone tower transmitters.

Something Huge Just Happened In Europe

Jun 09 09:33

The European elections brought no change for the Middle East

At the end of May, almost 500 million citizens across the European Union voted for Members of the European Parliament to represent them over the next five years, shaping the political orientation of the EU for the immediate future. While the results reflect voters’ desire for some real change, they brought no change for the Middle East.

The results triggered mixed reactions and interpretations, but it is obvious that European voters turned their backs on parties which have dominated EU institutions for a decade. Instead, they supported smaller candidates from Green, Liberal and Nationalist parties.

Europe has been largely absent from the Middle East for years, as it has been preoccupied with its own problems, from the 2008 financial crisis through migrant issues and now Brexit. The outcome of the elections is a divisive parliament, suggesting that one can expect a sense of déjà vu with Europe fighting internal battles and largely neglecting issues affecting its near neighbours.

The neoliberal establishment is wringing its hands in the wake of European elections that proved a resounding victory for populist parties across the continent, casting around for someone to blame but utterly incapable of realizing their own interference has doomed them. Doubling down on the censorship, they are determined to provoke the catastrophe they need to make free speech history.

The NGO-industrial complex was operating at maximum capacity in the weeks leading up to the election, shutting down hundreds of Facebook pages deemed “fake” or “hate speech” in the hope of controlling the messages reaching voters before they made the terrible mistake of voting for a candidate who represents their interests.

US President Donald Trump has denounced critics of his NATO policy, saying while the alliance “was going down” over the last 15 years, it is “like a rocket ship up” now. According to the US commander-in-chief’s interview with Fox News, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg sided with him.

Danish Stand on Nord Stream 2 Contradicts European Laws - Schroeder

Denmark puts at risk timely completion of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline for delivering Russian gas to Europe, and Danish policy contradicts European laws, Gerhard Schroeder, the former German chancellor and the head of Nord Stream 2 operator's board of directors, said on Friday.

"Nord Stream 2 could be put into operation in the end of the year already in order to ensure safe deliveries of natural gas to Europe. However, there is a problem. For many months already, Danish policy has been putting at risk timely completion of the project", Schroeder said at a business breakfast dedicated to Nord Stream 2, held at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF).

UKRAINE'S NEW PRESIDENT COMMITS TO EU, NATO MEMBERSHIP

SOURCE: DW
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy intends to keep Ukraine "on the path of European and Euro-Atlantic integration." He also said he is ready to negotiate with Russia to end the war in Eastern Ukraine.

'Ukraine's strategic course remains unchanged'

During his visit to Brussels on Tuesday, newly elected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said his country still aspires to being a member of both the European Union and the NATO military alliance and that he is open to peace talks with Russia.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg had been waiting to hear the foreign policy aims of the former comedian, who was sworn in as Ukraine's president last month.

What Zelenskiy said:

His government intends to keep Ukraine "on its strategic course ... to achieve fully-fledged membership in the EU and NATO." Membership of both entities "is the priority of our foreign policy."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Zelenskiy understands that he is walking a geopolitical tightrope, very much without a net, because his reaching out to Russia may cause NATO to spurn his desire to join it.

But IF he can work on these two objectives together, and better the lives of working Ukrainians, he will become a hero to his people; I, for one, hope that he can achieve this, and get rid of the wretched corruption, instigated and encouraged, by his predecessor, President Poroshenko (President Obama's and Victoria Nuland's "golden boy"), so that the nation can become functional again.

My fingers are crossed for this guy, that he is able to do what his country wants him to do, by "hiring" him as their President through the electoral process.

THE LONG ARM OF THE BILDERBERG GROUP. CREATED BY THE CIA AND MI6

The most important “personalities” participating this year, as usual, were those of the USA;

Clubs, Cartels and Bilderberg
Henry Kissinger, “historical figure” of the Group, closely linked to the late David Rockefeller (image right, died in 2017) who was founder of The Bilderberg and the Trilateral Commission:

Mike Pompeo, ex-head of the CIA and currently US Secretary of State[2];

General David Petraeus, ex-head of the CIA[3];

Jared Kushner, advisor (and son-in-law) of President Trump for the Middle East, and intimate friend of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Following on, Jens Stoltenberg, Secretary General of NATO, who received a second mandate for services rendered to the USA.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You need to look very closely, at the statement from Henry Kissinger, one of the "dark, overlord princes" of this confab, who saw war as a way to fix anything which had gone wrong, or could possibly go wrong:

"Control oil, and you will control the world; control food, and you control people!!"

Then you look at the presidencies of Bush; Obama; and Trump, and you see how transparently this has translated into wars for resources, to which the US has absolutely no moral right.

So let me see if I have understood this correctly; regime change; occupation; and the selling of oil only in US petrodollars.

This policy... has become the despicable, unholy trinity, which moves American foreign policy forward.

And in terms of food, not being GMO?!? You can clearly see that this battle has been brewing for a long time, and at least, at this moment, it appears that the non-GMO proponents, have had some small victories; but not nearly enough to feed the US in the future, coupled with catastrophic floods, which means acreage which used to see the planting of crops right now, cannot be planted.

And folks, if you do not have a freezer right now, talk to your family, and neighbors; getting a freezer, and filling it with non-GMO food, might not be a bad idea. Mike and I went to the local grocery store last week, and the "sticker shock" was pretty amazing.

I swear, we weren't buying either caviar or champagne :-)

But seriously, you need to protect yourselves against the time when the excrement hits the ventilation system, in all possible ways. That means, potable water, storable food, and whatever medications are necessary, for you, your family, and for your pets.

However, there may be one notable exception. Jewish schools are to be exempted from the ban, fellow Social Democrat Civilian Minister Ardalan Shekarabi assured following the criticism from the Jewish Central Council.

“There are special rules for the minorities we have in Sweden. The Jewish minority is protected in that legislation and this means that they will be able to maintain their structure with special training,” Shekarabi was quoted as saying by Aftonbladet daily.

"My Bank In Denmark Just Offered Me A Negative Rate Of Interest To Borrow Money"

Authored by Alex Moneton via SovereignMan.com,

Yesterday I called my bank in Denmark, Nordea, and couldn’t believe what they told me...

They offered to lend me money at MINUS 0.12% for a ten-year mortgage.

In other words, the bank would PAY ME to take out a loan.

Of course, as a Sovereign Man editor, I’ve written a lot about negative interest rates. But most of these cases were always reserved for big banks or institutions.

That no longer seems to be the case…

Now, negative interest rates ARE the norm. Thousands, if not tens of thousands of Danes will go out and take out mortgages that will pay themevery month.

This is completely mind-boggling to me. But it just highlights how broken the financial system really is.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable.

The Center Isn't Holding In Europe

If there is one big takeaway from the recent European Parliamentary elections it is that centrist parties which stand for nothing in particular represent a lot fewer people. From both the ‘left’ and the ‘right’ the center lost ground across Europe.

The Euroskeptics got a lot of press in the run up to these elections and the final result was pretty much in line with expectations, with a couple of exceptions. The pro-EU left lost a lot more ground in Sweden than expected but the Dutch People’s Party were rejected thoroughly in the Netherlands.

Otherwise the polls were mostly in line with the results. And while the early spin tried to put a brave face on results in the U.K. and France Marine Le Pen outpolling sitting president Emmanuel Macron just two years after he beat her in the presidential election is notable.

Mette Frederiksen: the anti-immigration left leader set to win power in Denmark

She marked her return on Facebook, with a video straight out of a Quentin Tarantino film, buttoning her jacket, arranging her hair and slipping on stiletto heels to heavy metal music. “I’m ready again,” she declared to camera. “Let’s get this bus rolling.”

Mette Frederiksen, leader of Denmark’s opposition Social Democrats, was in hospital with food poisoning when the prime minister, Lars Løkke Rasmussen, called a general election last week, and was two days late joining the campaign.

But the 41-year-old has all the momentum, with her left-of-centre bloc starting with an eight percentage point lead, and few doubting that she will become Denmark’s youngest-ever prime minister after the election on 5 June.

US Hits EU With Ultimatum to Save Close Ties to American Arms Industry - Report

The Western alliance has come under increasing strain in recent years amid President Trump's insistence that NATO's European members commit more to defence spending, and reports that the president has repeatedly raised the issue of withdrawing Washington from the bloc.

The Trump administration has presented America's European allies with an "ultimatum" demanding that the countries make changes to their defence policy to ensure that Europe remains closely linked to US defence manufacturers in the creation of new arms, El Pais has reported, citing documents from a meeting in Washington, DC on 22 May between US officials and members of the EU's Political & Security Committee.

According to the Spanish newspaper, US officials warned their EU counterparts that they may be left alone in the face of threats, supposedly including Russia, if Brussels rejected the US defence companies' participation in the creation of new weapons systems.

EU condemns new Israeli settlements in East Jeruslaem as 'illegal'

The European Union has condemned Israeli plans to build illegal housing units in occupied East Jerusalem.

The plans, which were announced on Wednesday by Israel's housing ministry, include the construction of 805 housing units in Jewish neighbourhoods in the city's east, which was occupied by Israel in 1967.

In a statement released Saturday, the EU said it is "strongly opposed to Israel's settlement policy, including in East Jerusalem, which is illegal under international law and an obstacle to peace".

"The policy of settlement construction and expansion in East Jerusalem continues to undermine the possibility of a viable two-state solution with Jerusalem as the future capital of both states, which is the only realistic way to achieve a just and lasting peace.

Hungary: The EU has provided 2 million migrants with unlawful cash cards worth 1.55 billion euros in an effort to legalise illegal migration

“Over two million migrants have received anonymous debit cards. The equivalent of 500 billion forints (1.55 bn euros) has been spent in this manner”, Chief Security Advisor to the Prime Minister György Bakondi said on Hungarian M1 television.

Mr. Bakondi said that the cards are unlawful, because European citizens cannot own anonymous banking cards, they cannot be monitored, and no public procurement procedure was launched for their issuing.
