Soros Pledges Renewed Fight Against ‘Dominant Ideology’ of Nationalism, Says EU ‘on Verge of Breakdown’
http://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/01 ... breakdown/

Quote:
Soros, alluding to the collapse of the USSR, told the left-liberal newspaper: “It’s déjà vu all over again with one big change — the dominant ideology in the world now is nationalism… It’s the EU that’s the institution that’s on the verge of a breakdown.

“And Russia is now the resurgent power, based on nationalism,” Soros said.

That's very bad and shows that we don't get shown the full picture in the "west" of how this conflict is still going. Serbia should call itself lucky to have Russia on their side.

So... they've agreed that they can talk about it.

Progress.

Next item for the SPD discussion: whether or not Merry and Pippin are just little orcs.

The German Navy doesn't exist: problems abound with submarines, other craft.

Its new frigate just got sent back to ship builders after being rejected and deemed unworthy for service.

Pity about the subs, not the rest.

Anyways, German government is matching closer to another "grand coalition".

Soros pours money into campaign to reverse Brexit

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... rse-brexit

Quote:
US business magnate has given £400,000 to Best for Britain group since June 2017 election


Quote:
A key pro-EU campaign to reverse the Brexit vote has been given more than £400,000 of funding by American billionaire George Soros’s foundation, the Guardian can disclose.

The business magnate, who is the founder of the Open Society Foundation (OSF), made more than £1bn betting against the pound on Black Wednesday, which forced the British government to pull it from the European exchange rate mechanism.

The Best for Britain campaign, which advocates remaining in the EU, rather than fighting for a soft Brexit, has received the six-figure sum from OSF since the June 2017 election, sources have told the Guardian.


Soros: Doing what's "best for Britain" since 1992! :lol:

Dutch Foreign Minister admits he lied about meeting Putin in 2006:

https://nos.nl/artikel/2216638-zijlstra ... oetin.html

Google Translated version of original source:

Quote:
Minister Halbe Zijlstra of Foreign Affairs lied about a meeting with the Russian president Putin in 2006. He admits this in an interview with de Volkskrant . The VVD member was, contrary to his previous claims, not at a meeting with the Russian president in his country.

Zijlstra acknowledged his lie last weekend, in a conversation that the newspaper had with him at Schiphol, shortly after returning from a business trip to Japan.

The then VVD group leader said in a speech in 2016 that he had heard Putin himself talk about 'Greater Russia'. Zijlstra was then a council member and was deployed for Shell through his ICT one-man business. Zijlstra in his speech: "I was an employee, I was tucked away in the back of the room where it was taking place, but I could very well hear what Vladimir Putin's answer was to the question what he meant under Great Russia", said Zijlstra during the party congress. .

"Because Big Russia is what he wants to go back to, and his answer was: that is Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and the Baltic States, and Kazakhstan was nice to have."


Nice to see another instance of this "Greater _____" bullshit debunked.

As a follow up to that, here is an article about that from the Intercept

https://theintercept.com/2018/02/12/dut ... ut-russia/

Quote:
Over the past year, there have been numerous claims made by Western intelligence agencies, mindlessly accepted as true in the Western press, that have turned out to be baseless, if not deliberate scams. Just today, it was revealed that Dutch Foreign Minister Halbe Zijlstra lied when he claimed he was at a meeting with Putin, in which the Russian president “said he considered Belarus, Ukraine and the Baltic states as part of a ‘Greater Russia.'”

“Fake news” is certainly something to worry about when it emanates from foreign adversaries, but it is at least as concerning and threatening, if not more so, when emanating from one’s own governments and media. And there are countless, highly significant examples beyond today’s of such propaganda that emanates from within.

And this is all independent of all those cases when the U.S. media was forced to retract, or issue humiliating editor’s notes, about stories regarding the “Russian threat” that turned out to be false. Even in those cases in which some evidence can be found suggesting that some “Russians” were engaged online in support for a particular cause, the size and impact of it is usually so minute as to be laughable. In response to months of demands and threats to Twitter from the U.K. government to investigate how its service was used by Russians to support the Brexit referendum, Twitter — to satisfy mounting complaints — finally came up with this:

<< 49 accounts retweeted 461 times and liked 637 times... represents less than 0.005% of the total number of accounts that tweeted about the referendum >>



Take that shit into your pipe and smoke it

and the story continues... :lol:

Quote:
"One day after we reported that Latvia's central bank governor - and ECB Governing Council member - Ilmars Rimsevics was detained by Latvia’s anti-corruption authority on Saturday on suspicion of accepting a bribe of more than €100,000, prompting both Latvia's Prime Minister and the president to call on Rimsevics to resign, Latvia now appears to have a full-blown banking crisis on its hands, after the European Central Bank froze all payments by Latvia's third largest bank, ABLV, following U.S. accusations the bank laundered billions in illicit funds, including for companies connected to North Korea’s banned ballistic-missile program."

Yet another European journalist assassinated for investigating tax frauds among elites:


Quote:
Slovakian journalist investigating claims of tax fraud linked to ruling party shot dead


https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/feb/26/slovakian-journalist-investigating-claims-of-tax-linked-to-ruling-party-shot-dead

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/26/world/europe/jan-kuciak-slovakia-journalist-killed.html


Just like that one in Malta. Investigating the "Panama Papers" type of connections between oligarchs and criminal syndicates is dangerous work.
