European Superstate?


From European SUPERSTATE to be unveiled: EU nations 'to be morphed into one' post-Brexit, in the UK Express (dated June 28, 2016)...
EUROPEAN political chiefs are to take advantage of Brexit by unveiling their long-held plan to morph the continent’s countries into one GIANT SUPERSTATE, it has emerged yesterday.

The foreign ministers of France and Germany are due to reveal a blueprint to effectively do away with individual member states in what is being described as an “ultimatum”.

Under the radical proposals EU countries will lose the right to have their own army, criminal law, taxation system or central bank, with all those powers being transferred to Brussels.

Controversially member states would also lose what few controls they have left over their own borders, including the procedure for admitting and relocating refugees.

[...]

...[S]ome see the Brexit vote as an opportunity to push ahead with the European elite’s long-cherished dream of creating a United States of Europe.

Spain’s foreign minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo has called for “more Europe” whilst Italy’s finance minister, Carlo Padoan, is advocating a common budget for the eurozone states.

And Emmanuel Macron, France’s economy minister, wants to go even further and set up a common eurozone treasury which would oversee the permanent transfer of funds from wealthier northern Europe to shore up Mediterranean economies.

Readers, what do you make of the above information about a European superstate with Germany and France at the helm?

    1. GOOD NEWS!

      The Dow-Jones Industrial Average just closed UP 270 points!


      Of course tomorrow it may go DOWN 400 points ,–– one never knows ––, but I have great faith in the market, IF The Oligarchs would only let it do what it will.

      At any rate I've lived ling enough to have learned that both Optimism and Pessimism feed on themselves and become self-fulfilling prophecies. THEREFORE it well behooves ALL of us to take as firm an OPTIMISTIC stance as we could possibly muster.

      DROWN OUT the NAYSAYERS.SHUN THEM. IGNORE THEM. –– STARVE THEM to DEATH if possible

      Haven't you ever noticed that LEFTISTS thrive on a Tragic-Pathetic, Febrile view of life? They ADORE Pain, Grief, Natural Disasters, Medical Crises and most of all Desperate Unfulfilled Needs.

      This is because they derive their power from promising COST-FREE RELIEF for miserable, downtrodden souls and victims of circumstances beyond their control.

      The Achilles Heel in MARXIST-COLLECTIVIST thinking, however, is its utter dependence on EXTORTION and outright THEFT from those who HAVE in order to satisfy the needs of those who HAVE NOT.

      Once the "PIE" is devoured, there is NOTHING LEFT for ANYONE to EAT.

      Marxism guarantees mutually shared deprivation, degeneration, increased desertion that soon turns to conflagration.

  2. New York Times braces for big change

    Politico, by Joe Pompeo

    This summer, The New York Times is ushering in a transformation more radical than it has seen in almost half a century, perhaps since the great Abe Rosenthal overhaul of the 1970s, which created the wide-ranging, multi-section Times we know today. Back then, the Times was grappling with economic headwinds and the rise of TV. Now the Times—like all newspapers—is grappling with economic headwinds and the rise of the smartphone, and its future is on the line once again. Story Continued Below “The Times has changed enormously in the past few years, but it still hasn’t changed enough,” said David Leonhardt, a prominent ...

    1. The sooner the New York Times expires, Trevor, the better it will be for life in these United States. The Times may be filled with erudite prose, and well-written articles on Arts and Leisure, etc., but the Times has always been a veritable FOUNT of Communist-Inspired Sepsis.

      A common mistake on the part of the half-educated and uniformed is the assumption that learned, elegant prose must be the product of authors filled with virtue.

      Unfortunately, INTELLIGENCE –– like FIRE –– is a neutral phenomenon that may be used in service to Evil as well as to Good.

    This was the aim all along: Meld 27 dithering, blathering, flailing states into one giant, pathetic, sclerotic, bureaucratic wreck with an embarrassment of a military that couldn't dislodge a bum from a toilet stall.

  4. Collectivists, who are in fact TYRANNISTS, will never cease trying to find new ways to dominate, subjugate and enslave the largest number of people possible.

    This used to be done by military aggression which spread terror by causing widespread destruction of property while killing huge numbers of "targeted" people. Today it is done by the manipulation of currencies by International Bankers, the owners and suppliers of the raw materials needed to keep the "modern" world functioning, and the Captains of Industry. It has always been in the best interests of this de facto oligarchy to keep the vast majority of world populations ignorant, poor and helplessly dependent on the Oligarchs, or rather what the oligarchs own and control.

    So guess what? Despite a relatively short period of hope brought about by the Enlightenment, the resultant decline of royal and aristocratic power, the increased democratization of Britain, Europe and the promise of the early success of the American Experiment, we have effectively come full circle and moved back to a far more centralized, greatly-expanded, "internationalized" version of the FEUDAL SYSTEM!

  5. I knew it was you with the first sentence...

    Another disturbing phenomenon is the complete suborning of the press by the global elites. An alarming corollary to that is the left's embrace and hero worship of the Globalist World Order and modern-day robber barons like Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk and Fanged International Supervillain George Soros.

    Does anyone remember when we had real liberals who stood for liberty and warned us about bankers, foreign policy finaglers and people in power?

    1. I'm glad you recognized me, Silver, but I never intended to deceive anyone. In my tiny treatise on how and why we got where we are I failed to mention any specific names of the villains who plague us. Thank you for filling some of that in for us.

      I look at everything from a Long View, Big-Picture, Megatrend perspective, and often omit or gloss over details. Probably because I see underlying principles –– and the adherence to or violation of –– as far more important than myriad facts and figures. In other words the seed that began the growth of a tree and its subsequent root structure are more significant than whatever limbs, branches, twigs, leaves, blossoms and fruit the tree ultimately may bear.

      From a metaphysical perspective Truth, Love, Intelligence and Principle are synonymous with God.

      If only we would learn to take to heart the advice given in the Scriptures to seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness, everything else we need to live a rich and fulfilling existence would come to us.

      Unfortunately, most of us insist on looking at Reality through the wrong end of a telescope, as it were.

  7. Look, even Chomsky wasn't always a complete buffoon. He only became a complete tool later in life.

    1. If Chomsky ever did anything right, FJ, it had to have been for the wrong reason. He has always been a know-it-all. I instinctively recipe from anyone who talks to me as if speaking from a great height.

    3. You instinctively "recipe" ...?

      I'm sure you meant something else. I'm not smart enough to figure out what it was.

      Anyway, this blog seems more intelligent than some others I've visited as a newcomer to blogging.

    4. Sorry, Trevor, I meant "instinctively RECOIL."

      Yes, AOW, but only to a limited degree. Perhaps we could discuss the odd limitations imposed by this DAMNABLE new 'outer at leisure when you're feeling better?

    1. Maybe some people like that? It makes them feel like Mom and Dad are still taking responsibility, for them, isn't that about it? From what I've heard the Scandinavians are happy letting the state supervise their lives. Do you think we should tell them they're wrong, if they like what they have?
