The German sado-monetarists seek to destroy the EU!

... unless they are indeed sociopaths in constant denial


It may sound unbelievable, but it's true. A few days after Brexit, the German sado-monetarists with the Minister of Finance, Wolfgang Schäuble, in the front line, demand stricter fiscal discipline by the EU members!

As Reuters reported:

Stricter budget rules for European Union states and a downsized European Commission are part of a post-Brexit reform plan for the bloc drafted by aides for German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble, the Handelsblatt daily reported on Wednesday.

The plan for Schaeuble, whose austere approach to public finances has resulted in a balanced budget in Germany for the first time since 1969, will almost certainly face resistance from France and Italy, who prefer borrowing to stimulate their economies.

"Member states should not be discharged from their responsibilities to ensure stable budgets and growth-friendly structural reforms," Handelsblatt quoted the German experts as saying in the reform proposals.

Furthermore, according to the same report: “... one suggestion in the plan was to downsize the European Commission, which has faced criticism for its extensive bureaucracy. It gave no further details.

The lunacy of the technocrats is beyond any doubt. There is no other explanation: either they are indeed dangerous sociopaths in constant denial, completely blind and unable to see the oncoming disaster, or, they want really to end the current EU/eurozone Frankenstein project.

How else someone could explain that inside this absolute disaster by the austerity and the fiscal discipline policies in most of the EU area and especially in the eurozone, the German "pundits" demand more sado-monetarism? How else could explain that they act as if there was no Brexit at all, pretending at the same time that they are not seeing others who want to escape from the euro-monster?

Yet, this last suggestion about "downsize the European Commission", probably exposes their panic and attempt to keep the German hegemony through further restriction of democratic procedures. A smaller German-occupied Commission would form a more anti-democratic EU, which the lobbyists and especially the German economic oligarchy will control totally. This shows that the German oligarchy will try to balance the loss of the UK by taking more power inside the EU feudal area.

However, this could become the definite gravestone for the current monstrous neoliberal EU. Nationalists and Far-Right eurosceptics are rising everywhere, seeing already a German-dominated Europe. Therefore we end up to the only possible explanation ... again: the German sado-monetarists seek to destroy the EU!

Indeed, Schaeuble continues to provoke, playing with fire. From WSJ : “... Mr. Schäuble clarified his comments to the reporters that were present. 'The Portuguese don’t want it [a new bailout program]. They also don’t need it, if they stick to the rules,' he said. [...] In Portugal, where Mr. Schäuble’s comments were subsequently broadcast, caused outrage among journalists and commentators. 'It isn’t enough that he corrects or clarifies the words that were said; he should apologize to the country,' daily newspaper Público demanded.

And all these, despite the fact that the IMF, this time, openly warned about the ready-to-explode German banking mega-bomb. From ZeroHedge : “... three years later, when not only did Deutsche Bank just flunk the Fed's stress test for the second year in a row, but moments ago in a far more damning analysis, none other than the IMF disclosed that Deutsche Bank poses the greatest systemic risk to the global financial system, explicitly stating that the German bank 'appears to be the most important net contributor to systemic risks.'

There you go: this is the recipe of perfect disaster, yet the German sociopaths together with Brussels bureaufascists insist on strict fiscal discipline from the member-states, even from totally devastated economies (because of their policies), like the Greek one! So, really, how would you explain it?

Ο πραγματικός λόγος που το καθεστώς Μητσοτάκη επιθυμεί διακαώς την ίδρυση ιδιωτικών πανεπιστημίων παραβιάζοντας το σύνταγμα

 του system failure   Όπως έχουμε ήδη αναφέρει σε προηγούμενο άρθρο , μπορούμε να δούμε τη σημερινή κατάσταση στην άκρως νεοφιλελεύθερη Αμερική, για να καταλάβουμε το βαθμό αποτυχίας του ιδιωτικού μοντέλου στα πανεπιστήμια. Ένα από τα μεγαλύτερα προβλήματα που αντιμετωπίζει σήμερα η Αμερικανική νεολαία είναι τα φοιτητικά χρέη. Πολλοί μάλιστα μιλούν για την επόμενη μεγάλη φούσκα που είναι έτοιμη να σκάσει και που μπορεί να αποδειχθεί πολύ χειρότερη από τη φούσκα των στεγαστικών δανείων που συμπαρέσυρε την παγκόσμια οικονομία το 2008.  Η επιβολή του μοντέλου της ελεύθερης αγοράς στην ανώτατη εκπαίδευση, σε συνδυασμό με ορισμένες ραγδαίες τεχνολογικές εξελίξεις στην αγορά εργασίας, δημιούργησε μια ολόκληρη γενιά ανέργων με πανεπιστημιακού επιπέδου γνώσεις, οι οποίοι δυσκολεύονται όλο και πιο πολύ να βρουν δουλειά ανάλογη των προσόντων και δεξιοτήτων τους. Στην Αμερική τους αποκαλούν πλέον 'hyper-educated poor'. Το όλο και πιο σαθρό αυτό σύστημα βασίζεται αποκλειστικά στο κυνήγι το

Israel is a European Invention & Gaza Genocide Was Made in West, w/ MEPs Clare Daly & Mick Wallace

BreakThrough News   Why does Europe support Israel so much? What does Europe gain from the occupation of Palestine and further escalation across the Middle East? How much of this is Europe following its own interests versus being subservient to US imperial designs in the region, as we’ve seen with Ukraine? Is Europe actually united on this or are there segments of the body politic that disagree with the US and Israel’s imperialist aims in Gaza? Does the EU have any awareness of its own hypocrisy? And are there consequences for those who speak out against the status quo?  

Israeli Cabinet Members Join Event Calling for Ethnic Cleansing & Resettlement of Gaza

Democracy Now!  An Israeli reporter covered a major conference in Jerusalem calling for Palestinians to be removed from Gaza in order to rebuild Jewish settlements. The conference was attended by about a third of the Israeli Cabinet, including Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich and National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir, both of whom have long been involved in the extremist settler movement in the West Bank.    Conference-goers were greeted by a huge map of planned illegal settlements in Gaza, and the atmosphere was joyful and celebratory, in contrast to what Israeli journalist Oren Ziv with +972 Magazine says is a somber atmosphere in Israeli public life following the October 7 Hamas attack. “ This is not just a bunch of extremists; it’s the government, ” adds Palestinian physician and activist Mustafa Barghouti in Ramallah.  

Πώς ο Γκρίνμπεργκ μπορεί να θάψει το καθεστώς Μητσοτάκη

του system failure    Είναι ξεκάθαρο ότι η αναμφίβολη πρωτοκαθεδρία του καθεστώτος Μητσοτάκη οφείλεται σχεδόν αποκλειστικά σε μια άκρως επιθετική επικοινωνιακή εκστρατεία που είχε καταφέρει μέχρι στιγμής να κρύβει κάτω από το χαλί (τουλάχιστον ως ένα βαθμό) τον αυταρχισμό και τη διαφθορά του καθεστώτος, καθώς και τις καταστροφικές πολιτικές που εφαρμόζει.  Και δεν είναι πλέον μυστικό, ότι ο άνθρωπος-κλειδί πίσω από αυτή την εκστρατεία είναι ο Αμερικανός δημοσιοσχετίστας, Σταν Γκρίνμπεργκ .    Όμως καθώς το καθεστώς επαναπαύθηκε στις δάφνες της νίκης των τελευταίων βουλευτικών εκλογών, τα μεγάλα προβλήματα συνέχισαν να συσσωρεύονται και φάνηκε ότι το καθεστώς είτε δεν ήθελε, είτε δεν μπόρεσε να τα αντιμετωπίσει. Έτσι, είδαμε σε σύντομο χρονικό διάστημα να έρχονται τα πρώτα σημαντικά πλήγματα στην πρωτοκαθεδρία του, μέσα από τα αποτελέσματα των δημοτικών και περιφερειακών εκλογών. Παρόλα αυτά, η αλαζονεία των καθεστωτικών στελεχών παρέμεινε αμετάβλητη, καθώς θεώρησαν ότι η τραγωδία των Τ

Israel’s Looming Invasion of Rafah is the “Worst-Case Scenario”

Democracy Now!   The United States, the European Union and countries around the world are warning Israel against a ground invasion of Rafah in southern Gaza. As Palestinian human rights attorney Noura Erakat says: “ This is disproportionate, excessive force that is meant to terrorize a population, ” and “ Israel must stop its genocidal campaign now. ” Erakat also responds to news that one of President Biden’s top foreign policy aides has admitted the administration has made “missteps” in the Middle East, and discusses calls to stop arms transfers under international law to prevent war crimes.

'Clearly a victory for Russia' as ICJ dismisses bulk of Ukraine's terror case against Russia

FRANCE 24 English   The United Nations' top court on Wednesday mostly rejected Ukraine's claims that Russia was financing "terrorism" in eastern Ukraine, saying only that Moscow had failed to investigate alleged breaches. Fernande Van Tets, FRANCE 24’s correspondent in the Netherlands, reports from The Hague on why this ruling is such a victory for Russia.

Day 1761: Julian Assange still in prison and under slow-motion execution by the Anglo-American imperialist criminals

failed evolution   On 11 April 2019, the Ecuadorian government of traitor Lenin Moreno, invited the Metropolitan Police into the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and they arrested Julian Assange . Since then, Assange is kept in Belmarsh high security prison in London, without actual charges.   The real reason world's number one political prisoner is still kept in this high security prison, is because he exposed horrendous war crimes carried out by the US imperialists and their allies.   The ruthless Western imperialist regime wants to punish the No1 real journalist in the world and make him an example for any Whistleblower or real journalist who will attempt to expose its big crimes in the future.   And the Anglo-American axis has now become officially a fascist coalition , framed by the rest of its Western pets. UK's Home Secretary Priti Patel, one of the most ruthless ever, decided to extradite Julian Assange to US. No surprise of course. The only question we had in mind is

Study Finds Media Giants New York Times, CNN, and Fox News Pushing for US War in Yemen

by Alan Macleod  Part 2 - Biased Reporting MintPress conducted a study of four leading American outlets: The New York Times , CNN, Fox News and NBC News. Together, these outlets often set the agenda for the rest of the media system and could be said to be a reasonable representation of the corporate media spectrum as a whole. Using the search term “Yemen” in the Dow Jones Factiva global news database, the fifteen most recent relevant articles from each outlet were read and studied, giving a total sample of 60 articles. All articles were published in January 2024 or December 2023. The study found the media wildly distorted reality, presenting a skewed picture that aided U.S. imperial ambitions. For one, every article in the study (60 out of 60) used the word “Houthis” rather than “Ansar Allah” to describe the movement which took part in the Yemeni Revolution of 2011 and rose up against the government in 2014, taking control of the capital Sanaa, becoming the new de facto government.
