A top bureaucrat for the European Union says that the 28 member bloc needs a standing army of 60,000 that could be deployed around the world if need be.
During a European Parliament hearing into his candidacy as vice president for foreign affairs and security on Monday, Josep Borrell, the EU’s incoming security chief, said: “The European Union has to learn to use the language of power.”
Borrell, a 72-year-old Spanish socialist who is set to become EU’s foreign affairs chief next month, said that the union should go further than its current 35,000 men and women who are available to be deployed worldwide.
“That’s already impressive, but we have to do more,” Borrell said. He urged EU lawmakers to “reinforce the EU’s international role and further our military capacity to act”
“The EU has to be more operational on the ground. We have to be ready to deploy forces, starting with our neighborhood,” Borrell continued.
The Spanish Eurocrat called on lawmakers in Brussels to up the number of troops available to be deployed to at least 55,000 to 60,000.
“We should pull our national sovereignties together to multiply the power of individual member states. And I am convinced that if we don’t act together, Europe will become irrelevant in the new coming world,” he added.
Last November, French President Emmanuel Macron called for the creation of a “real European army” to deal with the Russian threat and to rid the EU of its dependence on the US. German Chancellor Angela Merkel was quick to back the idea and enthusiastically echo Macron’s sentiments.
Others in the bloc haven’t been so keen to accept the idea. The UK, Visegrád countries (V4), and Romania have all voiced that NATO should remain the institution that guarantees security on the continent.
A new poll has revealed that Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party is the most trusted party in the country to represent the interests of the British people.
The poll, which was conducted by Ipsos MORI, surveyed 1,090 adults between the 27th and 30th of September and found that Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party had the highest level of trust among British parties, securing 31 percent of the vote.
The poll also discovered that Jeremy Corbyn’s attitude and proposals toward Brexit are not appealing to Britons, with 64 percent of respondents saying that they were dissatisfied with his proposals for leaving the European Union.
Giving respondents aged between 18 and 75 years-old the choice between 16 politicians and institutions, the Ipsos pollsters asked: “Who do you think is on the side of the British people?”
31 percent of respondents reported that they believed the Brexit Party was “more on the side of the British people” while 29 percent of respondents said the same about the party’s leader Nigel Farage.
Among the politicians or institutions which received the second-highest score, at 30 percent, were MPs who wished to leave the EU with a deal.
Less than a quarter of those who were surveyed said they were satisfied with Brexit proposals put forth by the Labor party.
Boris Johnson fared a little bit better, with 36 percent of respondents saying that they satisfied with his handling of Brexit. A whopping 54 percent reported that they were dissatisfied with Johnson’s approach toward Brexit.
The poll also asked voters: “Who do you think is on the side of the British Establishment?
To this question, 42 percent of survey respondents voted for the Conservatives while Boris Johnson came in second place. In third, were Remain MPs at 35 percent.
The survey also asked individuals how much they trusted the British Establishment to put the needs of the British people above their own interests.
Just 17 percent of respondents said they trusted the Establishment “almost always” or “most of the time” to put the needs of the nation first when it comes to Brexit.
42 percent said that they “almost never” trusted the Establishment when it comes to Brexit.
While commenting on the poll’s results, Keiran Pedley, the Research Director for Ipsos Mori, said: “In public opinion terms there is clearly political mileage in attacking the ‘British Establishment’.
At a major right-wing conference in France last weekend, former National Rally (RN) MP Marion Maréchal called on French people to resist the “Great Replacement”.
Maréchals comments came during a speech she gave at the “Convention of the Right” in Paris.
During her address, Maréchals told her supporters that the massive demographic changes that are currently taking place in France and Europe, often referred to as the Great Replacement, is a critical issue that right in France must address, Europe1 reports.
“The first major challenge, the most vital, is the great replacement, this demographic countdown, which already makes us realize the possibility of becoming a minority on the land of our ancestors,” Maréchal said.
The former populist MP then added that if Great Replacement were to continue it would produce a “multicultural society that wants to be fractured and violent”.
The idea of a Great Replacement, which asserts that mass migration and the idea of ‘replacement migration’ can only result in social and political disorder, was first put forward by the well-known French writer Renaud Camus.
For Camus, the Great Replacement has resulted primarily due to a belief held by elites which holds that interchangeability of everything can be very much applied to humans.
In the past, Camus has said that human beings were becoming “a product, a producer, and a consumer all at once, a thing, a number, not a human being”.
During her address, Maréchal also urged the crowd to set aside petty differences, to come together as a single united French right, and to “break down yesterday’s partisan barriers”.
Despite not having put herself on this list of potential National Rally candidates for the 2022 French Presidential elections, Maréchal stated: “Tomorrow, and I am deeply convinced about this, we will be in power.”
“After 40 years of mass migration, Islamic lobbies, and political correctness, France is in the process of passing from the eldest daughter of the Catholic Church to becoming the little niece of Islam. Terrorism is only the tip of the iceberg — this is not the France that our grandparents fought for,” she said.
Maréchals speech represents a major comeback for her within French politics. In 2017, she voluntary resigned as an MP to form the Institute of Social, Economic, and Political Sciences (ISSEP) in Lyon.
Americans should be outraged at what is being forced down the throats of American citizens. Yeah, we all love technology. Technology is everywhere and is improving every day. At one time, a computer was as large as a city block. Now, our cell phones have more powerful computers in them than some of our past spacecraft. 5G stands for fifth-generation and can be used to push humanity forward but can it also be used as a weapon?
At the National Press Club on June 20, 2016, the Federal Communication Commission set the stage for the race to 5G. On the I triple E beam forming document it states that this EMF (electromagnetic frequency) made soldiers’ eyes cook like eggs in WWII. Microwave radiation warfare is what we are up against. On a daily basis Americans are bombarded with electromagnetic waves and frequencies as it is. 5G is a silent low-frequency military-grade weapons technology. Barrie Trower was in the Royal Navy in 1960 where he states that 5G is the perfect stealth weapon because it’s a low-level frequency that can cause cancers and neurological damage.
Mark Steele is a Weapons System Head of Display Expert in Britain. He studied the effects of LED street lights emitting 5G frequencies on humans. People in close proximity to the lights reported headaches and nose bleeds. Steele also mentioned that based on the hertz and frequency, 5G can be used in conjunction with chemtrails where nano particulates sprayed out into our atmosphere create a glow on humans causing one’s location to be easily triangulated.
Two infamous cases of tumors caused by cell phone radiation are John McCain and Lebron James. For keeping quiet about his salivatory tumor, LeBron was rewarded with becoming a spokesperson for Samsung. Currently, the radiation level of 5G is one quintillion times above natural background radiation levels according to Professor Ollie Johansen of Sweden. The United States and Canada have set the standard level of EMF 600-1000 times higher than levels known to cause cell degeneration on the microbial level. It only takes .0000000002 microwatts per centimeter squared for standard cell phone operation. At .000027 microwatts per centimeter, pine cone needles on trees begin to age. 6.0 microwatts per centimeter begins DNA damage in cells yet the U.S. has the standard set at 600-1000 microwatts per centimeter which is tens of thousands of times higher than hazardous emission levels. You are not safe.
Health risks associated with radiofrequency radiation are unknown to the general public. In fact, the industry and companies set to benefit from 5G technology have not invested much in finding out all of the health risks 5G poses to humans. Industry-funded testing positively supports 5G while independently funded testing shows this technology to be very harmful as mentioned in the previous paragraph. This is a checkmate move for those set out to destroy and control what’s left of humanity. Is it any wonder why most major insurance companies will not insure wireless companies. The insurance companies are fully aware of the liability of insuring a company promoting a product that can and will cause severe health issues.
We are apparently in the technological age but is all technology worth the risk to the health of humanity? Are major wireless companies nefariously pushing harmful tech on the public just to make a buck? Is this about money and market share or are we being set up by our government officials to be diminished and controlled? We are living in the last days so do your homework and be aware.
A study carried out by the Institute of Legal Medicine in Münster has revealed that nearly half of the migrants who claim to be under the age of eighteen are adults.
On behalf of courts and youth welfare offices, legal physicians from Münster investigated the age of close to 600 so-called ‘unaccompanied minor refugees’ whose age had been in doubt.
What the researchers discovered was shocking.
Of the 600 ‘unaccompanied minor’ who were forensically examined by physicians, 40 percent of the young men were adults, Focus Online reports. Most of these men were from Afghanistan, Eritrea, Algeria, and Guinea.
But the 40 percent figure is more than likely a lowball estimate. If there was any doubt of a migrant’s age after the forensic analysis, the researchers classified them as a minor.
Forensic Science Professor and Deputy Director Andreas Schmeling told members of the press: “Since we cannot pinpoint the date of birth for the day, there is a gray area. With this variability, we always judged in favor of the person concerned. Thus in cases of doubt, he would be classified as a minor.
The ages of migrants were determined via data obtained from several different methods. Migrants underwent physical examinations, while their dentures, wrist bones, and clavicles were examined radiologically.
So-called ‘unaccompanied minor refugees’ receive special treatment in Germany. They receive more financial and social support, while they generally don’t have to live in collective accommodations.
The German Association of Towns and Municipalities has surmised that the cost to take care of ‘unaccompanied minors’ is approximately 5,000 euros per month.
Physicians in Germany aren’t the first in Europe to uncover the disturbing truth that large percentages of migrants lie about their age to receive special treatment.
In June, various media outlets in Europe reported that that 90 percent of Moroccan migrants who’ve come to Sweden in recent years under the guise of being ‘minors’ are adults.
Last year in Sweden, a dentist has his career ruined after he revealed to the public that 80 percent of the migrant ‘children’ patients that he was seeing in his practice were adults.
And, just weeks ago, newly released statistics in France revealed that French taxpayers are spending no less than two billion euros per year on so-called ‘underage migrants’.
Five radical Islamic terrorists who had previously been stripped of their Dutch identity will now receive their Dutch passports back due to a ruling made by the Raad van State (The Council of State).
In September 2017, July 2018, and April 2019, Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Mark Harbers withdrew the Dutch passports of men who were involved after it came to his attention that they had joined terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria, SCEPTR reports.
The withdrawal of their Dutch passports officially made the jihadists unwanted aliens of the Dutch state, which meant that the men could no longer legally step foot in the Netherlands, or by extension, Europe’s Schengen area.
But the decision to strip the radical Islamic terrorists was overturned by the Council of State, reportedly, due to a technicality. Reportedly, officials from The Council of State contend that because the terrorist organizations that the men had joined were not yet included on the list the country’s ‘prohibited groups’, the action that was taken by Mark Harbers was deemed illegitimate.
State Secretary for Justice and Security Ankie Broeker-Knol (VVD) has affirmed that the decision to undo the withdrawal of the men’s passports made for this reason.
In addition to having Dutch citizenship, the five radical Islamic terrorists also are citizens of Morocco. Their names are Driss Daouayry, Az Edinne Benaissa, Benyamine Fadlaoui, Mounir El Kharbachi, and Ridvan Öz.
Oddly enough, the decision to strip jihadists who travel abroad to fight for radical Islamic terrorist organizations is a hotly contested issue in many northwest European countries.
In March, Sweden’s left-wing globalist Prime Minister Stefan Löfven refused to strip Swedish Islamic State Fighters of their citizenships and has said that they have the right to come back to the country.
Denmark has been less lenient than its Scandinavian neighbor. Last spring, the Danish government decided that it wouldn’t recognize “ISIS children” as Danish nationals.
Sweden’s grossly incompetent leftist-globalist government has allowed an ISIS fighter to return to the country to receive medical treatment from the Swedish state for an injury he received in Syria. If that wasn’t bad enough, they then allowed him to return to Syria to continue fighting for the ISIS terrorist organization.
Khaled Shahadeh, a former resident of Gothenburg and ISIS terrorist, has reportedly bragged about receiving medical treatment from the Swedish state after he was badly wounded in a clash with the Syrian military in 2014.
From a prison inside of Kurdish-held territory, 29-year-old Shahadeh told a crew from the Kurdish media outfit ReProduction, “They fixed the nerves. I recovered. Got married and returned here with my wife,” Expressen reports.
During the interview, Shahadeh goes on to say that when he returned “home”, he was greeted at the airport by staff from the Swedish Security Police SÄPO.
“They were a little worried about why I returned to Sweden,” Shahadeh continued
“They immediately started asking questions about why I returned and what I would do in Sweden. They made it clear from the start that I had not done anything that violated the law. They said there was no law that says I should not join al-Dawla or do jihad,” Sahadeh claimed.
In 2015, Shahadeh returned to the Islamic State in Syria. He’s admitted to witnessing mass executions of prisoners.
“Some prisoners were executed, others had their heads cut off. It’s the worst thing I’ve ever seen with my own eyes,” he said.
Shahadeh remained fighting alongside ISIS terrorists until the final battle in Baghouz during the spring of 2019 when he fled and ended up in the hands of the Kurds.
Once again, he’s banking on the sheer stupidity of the Swedish state to allow him back in.
“I want to ask for all the people forgiveness, not just my family. If Sweden wants to help us, let them help do it. We are grateful if Sweden helps us out of here,” Shahadeh concluded.
Sweden has the highest percentage of jihadists per capita in Europe who’ve traveled to the Middle East to join terrorist organizations
A drastic rise in the number of migrant arrivals in the last few weeks has brought a facility on the island of Lesbos to the brink of collapse and has forced the government to take immediate action.
As a result of the overcrowding and deteriorating conditions, Greece has started to move hundreds of ‘asylum seekers’ from its migrant camp on the island of Lesbos to its mainland.
On Monday, close to 1,500 migrants were moved from the Moria reception center on Lesbos to migrant facilities in Thessaloniki, Athens News Agency reports.
There is also a second group of migrants that are expected to be transferred to a refugee camp in Nea Kavala, Kilkis.
Moria, Europe’s largest migrant camp, has a carrying capacity of about 3,000 people. As of right now, more than 11,000 migrants and refugees – mostly from Africa, the Middle East, and Asia – are being held there.
Recently, Greece has seen a sharp rise in the number of migrants arriving on its shores.
Last month alone, Greece saw close to 7,000 migrants arrive by boat, the highest number since 2016.
Last week, 13 dinghies with around 540 people on board landed in Skala Sikamias in Lesbos. This represents the largest number of migrant arrivals in a single day since the EU-Turkey agreement was signed.
Despite the 2016 EU-Turkey agreement enabling Europe to send back all migrants who arrive at the Greek islands via Turkey, the Turkish government hasn’t honestly upheld the pact. Few migrants have ever been returned under the agreement.
The sharp increase in illegal migrant arrivals to Greece prompted the Greek foreign minister, Nikos Dendias, to summon Turkey’s ambassador last Friday to “express Greece’s deep discontent.”
In August, Turkish Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu threatened European governments when he said, “We are facing the biggest wave of migration in history. If we open the floodgates, no European government will be able to survive for more than six months. We advise them not to try our patience.”
Greece represents Europe’s primary point of entry for Afghan, Iraqi, and Syrian migrants. More than half of the 56,000 migrants who’ve landed on the northern shores of the Mediterranean have landed in Greece.
After lawmakers in Hong Kong announced a new bill that would allow fugitives to be extradited to mainland China in early June 2019, the streets of the large, modern city have been mobbed by huge numbers of protesters.
On Sunday, June 9, more than 1 million protestors stopped traffic and blocked roads leading to the Legislative Council building complex where a lawmaker debate over the controversial bill had been slated.
To prevent authorities from identifying them, many protesters cover their faces. But more high-tech citizens direct high-powered laser beams at surveillance cameras connected to a centralized face recognition database of images collected from official offices, applications for housing, loans or credit, and the like.
A video published on Twitter showed what looks like a rock concert laser-light show – but multiple vivid blue and lime-green rays of concentrated light were definitely lighting up and trying to blind the police, armed in full riot gear and standing at the ready, who faced the throng from the safety of a building rooftop.
For the past three months, protesters have been annoying and distracting staff members inside the police headquarters by shining brilliant lasers capable of burning through flesh or putting an eye out.
Former electrical engineering associate professor at the University of Hong Kong Dr. William Cheung Sing-wai confirmed that:
“Laser pointers, especially those with high power, can burn one’s skin and cause permanent injury to the eyes.”
On a positive note, laser pointer sales are up in the Aplui Street market of Hong Kong. The larger laser pointers sell out first but the smaller “stargazing pens” are also popular tools for both offense and defense.
We say tools, the police in Hong Kong say weapon as they refer to all laser pointers as “laser guns.” Three police officers injured by lasers required medical treatment.
According to Dr. Sing-wai, laser points that teachers use can project less than 1 milliwatt of power which is enough to damage an eye. At a police demonstration, a laser beam at close range set a sheet of paper on fire.
Passers-by have also been targeted with lasers to stop them from snapping images that authorities could use to identify the upstarts.
Steve Li Kwai-wah, the Senior Superintendent of the Organized Crime and Triad Bureau, stated that laser weapons are not prohibited in Hong Kong.
That being said, there is trouble brewing over the confiscated lasers because “the laser pointers seized by police breached the Trade Descriptions Ordinance for failing to display energy levels or warning labels.” Customs officials now control the case.
This number of protestors hasn’t been seen since mainland China regained control of Hong Kong from the colonial British in 1997.
Citizens of Hong Kong caught protesting are being blacklisted by their government which is forcing companies to ban such employees from the workplace. This is cascading into the economy as businesses are suffering from transportation shutdowns caused by the determined protesters.
Hong Kong opponents of the extradition law believe that it would threaten the legal relationship they have had with China since the early 1980s. Deng Xiaoping, the Paramount Leader of the People’s Republic of China, is responsible for the current “one country, two systems” rules of governance.
Unified China agreed to preserve the separate economic and administrative systems in certain Chinese regions, including Hong Kong. The Hong Kong government operates on its own and handles all legal, economic, financial business, and foreign trade relations.
Allowing Hong Kong to extradite Hong Kong residents suspected of criminal activity (which includes protesting the extradition bill) would give Communist China a toe-hold into dictating policy in neighboring Hong Kong.
China is infamously building the ultimate Big Brother-esque surveillance state and is using their advanced public biometric identification system to shame jaywalkers which is a big deal in that ancient culture of honor and dishonor.
Meanwhile, the ongoing mass protests in Hong Kong continue to interrupt business-as-usual. They say they won’t disperse until their demands are met:
- Withdraw the extradition bill formally and completely.
- Start a formal investigation into police brutality.
- Force the resignation of Carrie Lam, Hong Kong’s Chief Executive.
- Release protesters who have been arrested.
- Adopt other specific democratic reforms.
Slogans left by protesters on some government buildings in the city center said, “Down with the Chinese Communist Party,” and “F–k Zhina” (Zhina was the derogatory term for China used by the Japanese during its partial occupation of Hong Kong in the 1930s and 1940s.
Hong Kong lawmakers were quick to respond, posting an official statement on the office’s website which claimed the slogans “insulted the country and its people” and said the demonstrators had gone “well beyond the scope of peaceful protest.”
Hong Kong was relatively quiet in July but violent demonstrations have been increasing since early August. The eyes of the world are on the people of Hong Kong with the hope, difficult as it may seem, for a peaceful resolution.
The populist Five Star Movement (M5S) and the establishment Democratic Party (PD) – two parties with pretty much nothing in common – have joined hands to take down their arch political opponent – Matteo Salvini.
Yesterday, the BBC reported that the two unlikely partners were able to strike a coalition deal to take down right-wing populist Matteo Salvini and his League Party, which has surged in popularity in the last months.
The two parties which have traditionally been at odds with one another entered into coalition discussions after the previous coalition between the League and M5S broke down after months of internal strife.
A failed attempt by M5S to do away with plans to construct a high-speed rail link proved that the populist coalition could no longer govern, Salvini said at the time. Salvini subsequently tabled a no-confidence motion against him with the hope that it would bring forth new elections.
But that’s not what happened. Salvini seemingly has been outmaneuvered by his political opponents.
The leaders of the newly-arranged coalition have asked Italy’s currently sitting president Sergio Mattarella to reinstate Giuseppe Conte as the official head of the government.
Presidential spokesman Giovanni Grasso has said that Conte is set to meet with President Mattarella this morning. Most expect Conte to be given a mandate to form a new government.
Salvini has stated that only thing which brought the two parties together was their mutual hatred for himself and his National Populist League party.
“The only thing that unites them (M5S and PD) is their hatred of the League,” Salvini told journalists on Wednesday. “The truth is that 60 million Italians are being held hostage by 100 parliamentarians who are dead scared of losing their seats,” he added.
In order to be finalized, the coalition agreement first must be approved by party members in an online vote. That vote is expected to take place before the end of the week.
If a final agreement is reached, the new governing coalition could serve until the next scheduled election in 2023.
