Scandinavia, the Baltics, NATO, and Russia
August 20, 2017

The admirable weekly newspaper The Economist had an article in October ten years ago titled «Putin flexes his muscles». The most recent Economist, on 12 August 2017, has an article on its website titled «Russia’s biggest war game in Europe since the cold war alarms NATO» — but in the print edition on my desk the same piece is titled «Mr Putin flexes his muscles». One wonders why the headline was changed, but it is interesting to note that the honorific «Mister» has been added since 2007. Not much else has altered, however, and the harangues of muscle-flexing anti-Putin rhetoric have continued unabated through the years.

Europe’s Newest Threat from Migrants: Culinary Correctness
March 12, 2016

Europe is experiencing another threat to its cultural distinction as a result of the massive influx of unwanted and largely Muslim migrants to the continent. Not only are Europe’s social, religious, and artistic identities under assault from the new migrants, but its rich culinary history is also threatened by migrants whose religious dietary laws do not comport with eating habits existing in Europe for centuries…

«Gratuitous Democracy» or «Banking Concentration Camp»
June 2, 2015

The news I’m talking about was reported by media in May. Not a big thing at first glance, certainly not a thing to hit radar screen. But the devil is in the details. Some interesting events took place in Scandinavia. The Danish government proposed exempting certain shops from the obligation to accept cash payments in a move seen as pushing the country a step closer to a «cash-free» economy. Businesses such as clothing retailers, gas stations and restaurants will no longer be required to accept cash next year, the government of Denmark said on May 6. The move comes as part of a pre-election package of economic growth measures aimed at reducing costs and increasing productivity for businesses. Many stores in Sweden do not accept cash but only debit or credit cards. Now a buyer with full pockets of cash will leave a Swedish and Danish shop empty handed…

​EU-Russia ‘trade war’ to finish within 3 months – Danish biggest lender
August 27, 2014

…However, we believe an escalating trade war would be unbearable for both Russia and the EU and that the EU will revoke the sanctions within one to three months, with Russia abolishing its own sanctions…

Something is Rotten in the State of Denmark
July 20, 2014

NATO charter member Denmark has been a sycophantic ally of the United States for most of the years following the founding of the Western military alliance in 1949. Until 1949, many Danes favored the creation of a neutralist military bloc of Nordic nations that would steer clear of American and Soviet military alliances. This attitude by the Danes irked Washington. A recently declassified Central Intelligence Agency document titled Neutrality and Third Force Tendencies in Western Europe and dated December 19, 1950, bemoaned the presence of neutralists in Denmark…

Bilderberg Elite Gather in Denmark to «Circle their Wagons»
May 29, 2014

«Bilderberg 2014» chose Copenhagen, Denmark as their venue for their annual «off-the-record» meetings and side chats that adhere to so-called «Chatham House Rule»… The Chatham House Rule states: «Participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed». Among the topics on the Bilderberg agenda this year are those that put the global elites in a crisis mode… To keep NSA’s interests at the forefront, former NSA director General Keith Alexander, is in attendance at Bilderberg 2014… Joining Alexander in Copenhagen is Tom Donilon, President Barack Obama’s former national security adviser, and Henry Kissinger, the eminence grise for major cabalistic conspiracies over the last two generations. Also in Copenhagen is John Sawers, the head of Britain’s MI-6 and an expert in the Chatham House Rule…

Nordic States Security (I)
August 5, 2013

 Sweden has come out with a proposal to build a joint Nordic Battalion Force (NBF) to make it part of the agenda for Sweden, Finland, Norway and Denmark… The force advocated by Sweden would operate as a separate force to the European Union’s Swedish-led Nordic Battle Group (NBG), made up of troops and equipment from Finland, Norway, Ireland, Estonia and Latvia. Unlike the NBF, which would be Nordic-specific, the larger NBG is assigned to the EU’s standby international mission forces. But taking into consideration the fact that the major EU parties are also NATO members, it easy to guess the both formations will inevitably add to NATO’s capabilities too…
