Greece Again Can Save The West

Like Marathon, Thermopylae, Plateau and Mycale roughly 2,500 years ago, Western freedom again depends on Greece.  Today Washington and its empire of European vassal states are playing the part of the Persian Empire, and belatedly the Greeks have formed a government, Syriza, that refuses to submit to the Washington Empire

Finland After Elections: Olli Rehn and Ministry of Hybrid Affairs

The parliamentary election in Finland is kind of daily routine for Europe. The Centrists, Social-Democrats, the National Coalition Party… Does it really matter if there is a master in the house? Helsinki snaps to attention and clicks heels upon receiving a command from Brussels. But there is a problem that cannot leave Finnish farsighted politicians and businessmen indifferent. Too many factors – geography, military and political issues, economic cooperation and history – make the relationship with Russia an issue which is always on the radar screen.

Ukraine Waits for Solutions to Its Problems from Everyone but Itself

At trilateral talks held in Brussels on October 30th, Russia, Ukraine and the European Commission reached an agreement on Russian gas supplies to Ukraine and gas transit to Europe. It is a temporary solution to this problem, since the agreement only covers the next five months – until the end of March 2015. Shortly before this, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso made it clear that emergency lending to Ukraine, including for the payment of its Russian gas debts, would not exceed €790 million (Ukraine is asking for €2 billion). Money for Ukraine can only be taken out of the pockets of European taxpayers. But European taxpayers are already disgruntled.

Scots Independents Lose Vote but Win the Fight

The Scottish independents may have lost the vote in this week’s historic referendum on secession, but they have won a decisive fight – with the winning argument that the United Kingdom is a broken-down entity in drastic need of democratic overhaul. And it is not just within Britain that the essence of this argument is resonating. The Scots’ push for independence, or at the very least for acquiring more democratic powers, is serving to fuel separatist sentiments across Europe, in Spain’s Catalonia region, Belgium, Italy and elsewhere.

Juncker? UK’s Cameron A Greater Threat To EU Freedom

The events in Ukraine and the political spat over who should be the next president of the European Commission might seem like issues far apart. But there is a connection that may seem rather surprising. The election of Juncker was presented, in the British media at least, as a kind of “showdown principle” over independence and freedom within Europe; but perhaps of much greater pertinence to European independence is how the continent appears to be toeing an aggressive American foreign policy towards Russia. This latter aspect is scarcely touched upon, yet it is arguably more urgent and relevant to the so-called democratic deficit that mars the European project. The real threat to European freedom and independence comes from politicians like Cameron, not Jean-Claude Juncker.

EU Constitution Marks 10 Years: Story of Stillborn Child

The European constitution saw light ten years ago. On June 18, 2004 it was previously approved by member-states summit. It never came into force foreboding future problems. Today the process of European integration is actually stymied; the numbers of Eurosceptics are growing. No matter that Serbia and some other Balkan states view the European Union as a messiah. It makes it expedient to have a look at what the authors of the constitution wanted and why their efforts were in vain.

Time to Remember Operation Overlord

One day before the operation Overlord began, Stalin informed Churchill that according to Tehran agreements, the Soviet offensive would start in mid-July at one of decisive sections of the front. The armies would gradually switch to offensive actions.  In the period late June – end of July the Soviet forces would start overall offensive. He meant operation Bagration launched on June 23, 1944 in Belorussiain concert with the actions of allies fighting at the second front. Hitler was encircled by the coalition forces and his collapse was inevitable. History allows drawing lessons. No matter the differences between political systems, the USSR and Western allies could unite against the common enemy – German Nazism threatening human civilization. What about Neo-Nazism emerging in Ukraine?  Few in the West share the opinion it must be opposed. The events of the 1930s are repeated again…

What They Teach in German Schools

The history lessons forgotten, the West turns a blind eye on the activities of Ukrainian political organizations Svoboda and Pravy Sector. Hindenburg, as German President, appointed Nazi Party leader Adolf Hitler as Chancellor of Germany.  He was sure that the country was to be ruled by the government of national solidarity. No need to deceive oneself believing that Yarosh, the Ukrainian Nazi and presidential candidate, has little support: his rating is about 2, 5%, the same as received by the National Socialist German Workers Party ( NSDAP ) in 1928. In1930 itreceived18% tobeincreasedto37% in1932. Nothing is exactly repeated in history, but the lessons should not be forgotten, especially by those who cherish the hope that Pravy Sector will collapse…

West and “Russian Spring”: Europe Adjusts its Stance

The more time passes since the Crimea’s re-unification with Russia, the more distant becomes the myth about the alleged international condemnation of Moscow. ... For instance, Patrick Buchanan, an American conservative political commentator, author, syndicated columnist, politician, and broadcaster,   notes, that Russia becomes a center of attraction for those who try to preserve their cultural and historic roots, “Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values. Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan. This is the path to degradation.” According to Buchanan, President Putin speaks about the things Western leaders should have spoken: the protection of Christian values and the traditional family. Actually Putin is bringing to Moscow the image of counter-reformist resistance to neo-pagan world-view…

The Fantasy World of Central Bank Interest Rates Has Set the Stage for the Second Wave of the Global Financial Crisis

Starting from February, deposits made with the Bank of Japan began to accrue negative interest. The interest rate at the Central Bank of Japan now stands at minus 0.1%. This is no longer seen as shocking. The central banks in developed countries began backing into the negative zone for passive operations several years ago...
