This the End of the EU?
New face of Euro-fascism...
[Sharon Hughes] 6/3/05
a world we live in today! Just a quick skim of the daily
newspaper has more power to wake you up in the morning
than that first cup of coffee!
For instance, a few recent 'expresso-type stories' include:
Gov. Pataki having to issue a ban on all publicly funded
Viagra-type drugs after the discovery that
198 convicted level 3 sex offenders (the
most serious kinds) were receiving these drugs thru
~ Federal investigators just reported that despite initiatives,
only 17.5% of the shipping containers that are rated as ‘high risk’ for
becoming vehicles for terrorists are inspected before being
put on ships bound for the U.S.
~ It’s been found that up to $30 million are sent from the U.S. yearly
through the sale of fake high-fashion merchandise, such as Gucci handbags & Prada
shoes by organized crime syndicates tied to Hezbollah, the Islamic militant
terrorist group. That’s right, from right here in the U.S.
- $30 million a year!
news item this week is the fate of the EU's constitution.
Despite French President Chirac’s pleas, the French people voted 'no' against the
European Union’s constitution, and the Dutch followed
suit. Is this good or bad news?
June 6th marks the 61st anniversary of D-Day, when American
and Allied forces invaded Normandy, which resulted in
the beginning of the end of
WWII and the liberation of Europe from Hitler’s rule.
What has Europe done with, and does the European Union
President Chirac worked hard to convince the people of
France to adopt the EU Constitution. But 70 percent of
France's 41.8 million voters turned
out on Mother's Day to cast their vote, with 55% voting
'no'. A few of the reasons sited for rejecting the constitution
were: fear of losing welfare
benefits and jobs, (unemployment listed as the #1 problem
in Europe today); a protest vote against Chirac; and concern
over immigration issues.
Chirac counted on the voters following the major political
parties which all supported the Constitution. What an
upset to find out he was wrong.
And he’s not happy.
Emboldened by the French vote, the Dutch just voted down
the constitution as well. Many sited their discontent with
the unpopular Dutch government,
and anger over the price increases that followed the introduction
of the Euro in 2002.
Nine countries so far have ratified the constitution: Austria,
Hungary, Italy, Germany, Greece, Lithuania, Slovakia, Slovenia
and Spain. There
will continue to be efforts to ratify the treaty until
the process ends in October of 2006. Proponents, obviously,
hoping that the French and Dutch
remain the only members to reject the treaty.
Well, what is this 25-nation European Union all about?
At the end of this article I will list some of the suggested
steps to restore a "glorious
Europe" - the mindset and agenda of liberal Europe, but
first a brief description of the make-up and function
of the EU.
Officially founded on November 1, 1993, and formerly known
as European Community (EC) or European Economic Community
(EEC), the EU's stated purpose
is to enhance political, economic and social co-operation.
The European Union's efforts cover every policy area,
including health, economic policy, foreign affairs and
a federation the
key activity of the EU is the establishment of one common
market, with a single currency. According to Wikipedia
online encyclopedia, "The members
of the European Union have transferred more sovereignty
to that regional organisation than any other members
any other nonsovereign regional
Today, twelve of the twenty-five member states use the
Euro for currency, including:
Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland,
Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal and Spain. Other
nations include Denmark, Sweden,
United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Ten
countries joined the EU on May 1, 2004: Cyprus (Greek part),
the Czech Republic, Estonia,
Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia and
Brussels serves as the de facto capitol of the European
Commission and the Council of Ministers, and also host
of some of the plenary sessions
of the European Parliament.
The European Court of Justice and the Parliament's secretariat
are based in Luxembourg, and the European Central Bank
is located in Frankfurt.
The major issues facing the European Union currently
include its expansion into the east and south, the ratification
of its constitution, and…its
relationship with the United States.
The EU is not the first attempt to unify Europe, there
have been many efforts throughout its history since the
collapse of the Roman Empire. Supporters
declare that the EU is a force for democracy. Of course,
as we saw in regards to the war in Iraq, several EU nations
did not stand with the United States.
But there are more disagreements between the EU and the
U.S. President Bush was in Brussels this past Februay,
with European Union member
states and with NATO. He addressed the issue of EU members
states exporting arms to China, stating, "There is a
deep concern in our country that a transfer of weapons
a transfer of technology to China, which would
change the balance of relations between China and Taiwan."
Just this week the US and the EU filed suit against each
other with the World Trade Organization. According to YubaNet.com, "The
move pits Washington and Brussels squarely against each
other in a months-long dispute that escalated after an
deadline passed without a resolution.
The United States believes financial aid given to Airbus
to launch new aircraft is illegal under WTO rules, while
the Europeans accuse Washington
of subsidizing Boeing through military contracts."
Author of "Hillary's Secret, Richard Poe, who we’ve had
as a guest on the show, wrote a piece in 2003 on "The
Facist Dream of a United Europe" where he lists the
following steps for a united Europe, suggested by Baron
(1898-1974) an Italian
Fascist and one of Mussolini's leading intellectual defenders,
who called for a united Europe in his 1972 book Men Among the Ruins.
1: ESTABLISH AN ELITE ORDER
" ...whose members would act in the various nations, doing what they can to promote
an eventual European unity...members of ancient European families..."
Step 2: LIQUIDATE EUROPE'S "POLITICAL CLASS"
" One must first get rid of the political class, which holds the power in almost
all European countries in this time of interregnum and European slavery..."
Step 3: ERADICATE NATIONALISM
Poe summarizes, "...to put aside their own national loyalties and embrace
the superstate of Europe -- to cross 'from the national level to the supernational...'
The 'nationalist hubris' or 'pride of nations' must be broken."
Step 4: BUILD A EUROPEAN EMPIRE
" into a single bloc...arranged hierarchically..."
Step 5: ABOLISH REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT
Evola called for a "general anti-democratic cleansing."
Step 6: PHASE OUT CHRISTIANITY
Christianity seen as "weak, insubstantial and formless...not specifically
European and not liable to be monopolized for European civilization alone:
after all, even American blacks are Christians..."
Step 7: DRIVE RUSSIA AND THE USA OUT OF EUROPE
" to become emancipated in every aspect and in equal measure from both the United
States and the USSR."
sentiments to be found in the European Union's goals? We'll
save that for part 2. Perhaps the rejection
of it's constitution by the French
and Dutch will render that a mute point. Is this the end of the EU?
We'll have to wait and see. tOR
