Shi’ites Take Back Baiji Refinery From Islamic State

Baiji-refinery-650x464[source]

Iran scored a major victory yesterday when Shi’ite forces recaptured the Baiji refinery (capacity 175,000 bpd) [map] from the forces of the Islamic State.

P.S.: note the tenacity with which NWO club Reuters continues to pretend that “Iraq” still exists, where in reality the fate of Iraq was sealed when the Americans murdered Saddam Hussein…

The Iraq War
Americans are the prototypical murderers, just like their Soviet palls, a habit that began in Nuremberg-1945. In 1815, not even Napoleon was hanged, but got a private army he could play emperor with in St. Helena.

… and the civil war was ignited between the three constituting factions (Shi’ites, Sunnis and Kurds), factions that don’t want to live with each other and only can be kept together by a dictator like Saddam, just like Yugoslavia was held together by dictator Tito or the USSR by a dictatorial Bolshevik party. In the future the US can only be held together under a dictatorship as well, not that Washington won’t volunteer, be we digress.

The US neocons plotted for a Clean Break in the Middle East by 1996 and a Clean Break is what the fools got, after cough bin Laden gave them the pretext for intervention first.

neocon_monsters1
“We are not as smart as we like to think that we are”. Neocons flushing themselves through the toilet of history, good riddance.

The US murderers bulldozered the secular Baath regime away and were surprised to discover that Islamists, not democrats, were all too ready to fill the power vacuum, created by the neocon fools, thank you very much. The geopolitical consequences of the colossal invasion blunder are breathtaking:

  • Unleashing fundamentalist Islam
  • The strong possibility of the rebirth of the Turkish run Caliphate
  • The emergence of a Shi’ite empire Tehran-Baghdad
  • The beginning of the end of the state of Israel

putin-schroeder-chirac
The Europeans, who in 2003 defied the US in the Security Council over Iraq did not know what was happening to them, could not believe their luck and could not stop laughing: the US financially wounded to the tune of $6 trillion extra debt and who are now losing control over the entire Middle East.

Offshore Wind Already Cheaper Than Gas-fired and Nuclear

Dong_Wind_landscape_Web[source]

Analysing public data on offshore wind in Denmark, energy consultant Mike Parr concludes that existing offshore wind is already cheaper than gas-fired power plants. Future offshore wind farms will be cheaper still – and up to 60% less expensive than the proposed nuclear power plant at Hinkley Point C in the UK. This means, writes Parr, that government support for offshore wind can be quickly and substantially reduced.

Russia Member AIIB

iron_silk_road[source]

As one of the last countries, China approved Russian membership of the AIIB bank on April 14. Russia filed an application for joining the AIIB on March 30, 2015, a day before the deadline. The only countries that did not apply were the US, Canada and Japan, which would not have made sense, since the proposed infrastructure projects are strictly Eurasian. Applications from Taiwan and North-Korea were rejected. The original capital has been doubled to $100 billion.

Now, nothing stands in the way of realizing gigantic infrastructure projects: a northern, central and southern corridor, all linking China with Greater Europe, the two dominant political poles of the 21st century, that will replace Pax Americana. These corridors will be out of the reach of the US Globocop military and navy. A dollar free Eurasian trade zone will be next, trading in euro, ruble and yuan only, or euro and yuan, once Paris-Berlin-Moscow has been achieved. This will put the NWO out of business once and for all, provided the most dangerous person in Eurasia and enemy of the German industry can be stopped. We’re talking about US stooge Angela Merkel.

Projected realization time: 10 years. One of the plans is to build a 320 kmh high speed rail link London-Beijing, reducing travel time from 15 to 2 days.

[zerohedge.com] – This Is Why The US Just Lost Its Superpower Status According To Larry Summers

If Larry Summers were a country, he would have joined the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. With a backpedalling Washington now completely isolated in its opposition to the China-led venture and with support and enthusiasm running so high that even Beijing itself is apparently surprised, none other than “the hawk” that was almost, kind of considered for the chairmanship of the Fed is out with a sharp rebuke of the US stance calling March “the moment the United States lost its role as the underwriter of the global economic system.”

Dump Merkel

Merkel-and-Hollande-012
After decades of careful Ostpolitik, culminating in the construction of the Northstream pipeline, one woman managed to destroy the results in a matter of a single year. If it is up to her, we’ll have the cold war back and Europe will be cut off from Eurasia, exactly what the satanic Americans want.

When asked what he appreciates about Merkel‘s Ostpolitik, Soros pointed out that “without Merkel there would be no sanctions against Russia.”

Wallerstein on European-American Relations

We already had identified the prominent American Marxist sociologist Immanuel Wallerstein as a supporter of the Paris-Berlin-Moscow continental European grand alliance, supporter as in: predicting that it will happen. This is a video from 2009 and had escaped our attention. From 6:47 onwards he says that his theory is that in the long run the US would prefer to link with China, rather than with Europe.

Our position is that that could be indeed the case. After all, if the US could team up with the USSR in 1933 with a program to combined destroy and enslave continental Europe, there is no reason why the US couldn’t team up with China, but that is something we Europeans should try to avoid at all cost, as we don’t want another 1945; instead we want a reversal of 1776. The reason why the US teamed up with the USSR in the past and could team up with China in the future, is because the US for a century or more is no longer run by people of European descent, but by the enemies of Europe, who intentionally are busy to destroy the European character of North-America and its European colony and turn both into half third world territories.

Europeans must act like the British did over a century ago, if they want to survive as a European civilization. German unification occurred in 1871 and twenty years later the British went in the “Oh My God” mode of thinking and began to plot for WW1, with the aim to destroy Germany, in the hope it would bring them another British Century, like the 19th century had been British. It took them 23 years to get the alliances in place and the war started and eventually they succeeded in their war aim. The British were able to hide their intentions until the very last minute and continued to play nice with the Germans and pretended that they were willing to ‘mediate’ between France/Russia and Germany, where in reality it had been the perfidious British themselves who had been plotting for the war all along. They told the Germans they were neutral, giving the green light to the Germans to attack France first and a few days declare war against Germany anyway and Germany was trapped.

Europeans must act likewise: playing nice to Washington and in the mean time engage in secret diplomacy with the Chinese about how the world should look like after the end of the American era:

worldmap2

It is absolutely normal in world history that the #2 in the global pecking order (Greater Europe) and #3 (China) conspire together against the #1, with the aim to kick #1 a few rungs down the ladder, so #2 advances to pole position and #3 becomes #2. That’s what Britain did, when after 1891 it began to conspire with France and Russia against Germany and that is what the US and USSR did after 1933 against continental Europe.

We Europeans must think for the long term and realize that the West is the sarcophagus of European civilization because of its ruling cultural-Marxist multicultural ideology, imposed by the Straussians in Washington, the only serious enemy Europe has. At the same time it is very important aspect to consider that if you want to return to global prominence (and that is what we want, Wallerstein is correct in that we no longer want to live in the shadow of America), you must realize that Paris-Berlin-Moscow could be the death trap of European civilization if it happens prematurely, because you automatically push America into the arms of China (Wallerstein’s scenario), just like currently Russia is pushed in the arms of China, thanks to the insane policies of the Straussians in Washington.

Every smart woman knows that it is not a good idea to file for divorce from a rich and once powerful man, who is lying on his deathbed and that it is far better to wait a little longer, sit it out, have an onion at hand to generate a tear or two, anticipate the funeral and shovel in the heritage (European America) once he dies, not a minute too early.

If you really want to be cynical, what a European should wish for is a war between the US and China, because that would eliminate any possibility of an American-Chinese alliance for the foreseeable future. That’s what the American and Soviet mode of thinking was when they deliberately pushed for the European war in 1939: the Americans had pushed the British and French in the fateful war guarantee for Poland and at the same time, the Soviets approached the Germans with a proposition for a non-aggression agreement, giving Hitler the illusion that he safely could come to the aid of his beleaguered and persecuted countrymen, forced to live in Versailles Poland, because in this way he could avoid a two-front war, or so he thought. Hitler crossed the border with Poland to solve a purely local conflict about Danzig, Corridor and status of Germans living in Poland, an action that in Nuremberg would be re-branded as “Germany starting WW2″, to cynically cover the real intentions of the Americans and Soviets (plus side-kick Churchill), who secretly were already in bed together since 1933.

What is the key to bring the Chinese over to our side? In 1914 the British had bought France into the anti-German coalition with the promise of Alsace-Lorraine and Russia with Constantinople/Bosporus. France would get its reward, Russia would get communism instead of ice-free access to the Seven Seas.

So how can China be bought into a anti-US coalition? Answer: Australia. We have reported earlier about the worries a very prominent senior politician, John Malcolm Fraser (84) had about the alliance Australia has with the US. Fraser is afraid that China could become embroiled with the US, that the US could lose (the US can’t even win from Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia to name a few) and that the alliance with the US could become a pretext for China to occupy and take-over Australia, article here. In other words, China (1300 million) could easily double its territory, or should we naughtily say: Lebensraum? The only way to achieve that is via a conflict with the US. All it takes is European diplomats secretly passing the message to China that Europe won’t defend Australia, just like Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin exchanged messages before September 1, 1939, that they would be on each others side in the intended rape of Europe. Now it is payback time. As part of the British empire, Australia fought against continental Europe twice, both in WW1 and WW2, so no need for sentimentality. Besides, Europe does not have the means to defend Australia against China, not even if it wanted. If Dutch, British and other immigrants could move to Australia in the fifties, correctly anticipating a better life, they can do that again and move to North-America if they can’t stand the smell of rice [*].

Wallerstein does believe that the US will lose its hegemonic position after the coming financial crash and that’s what we believe as well. But the greatest difference is that Wallerstein, the good old Jewish commie that he is, does not believe in race/ethnicity as major political categories (majestically ignoring how the USSR, Yugoslavia, Czecho-Slovakia, Iraq and now Ukraine came to an end over the past 23 years) and therefore can’t imagine that the US could fall apart. We in contrast believe that the demise of white America will precisely be the reason why the US will fall apart, although it is very difficult to accurately predict the timing. Our European strategy must be to do nothing substantial on the geopolitical front until America begins to fold. Breaking with the United States is not an option, in contrast to what Wallerstein suggests (but perhaps Wallerstein does not have the best European interest in mind). Why should we? In North-America there are still ca. 240 million people of European descent. Why should we make an adversary out of them if we can turn a substantial part of them into a sovereign junior partner of Paris-Berlin-Moscow? European-Americans are not the problem, the US leadership is. What Europe should do when the opportunity arises is to take the lead in the creation of a sort of ‘European Commonwealth’ and simply push away those American territories that don’t have a clear European majority, like the Latino-majority states in the US South-West, resulting in yet another white flight from these territories into ‘fly over country’. That should result in a quartering of the US: Mexican majority territories back into Mexico, East Coast, West Coast (two new ‘Brasils’) and finally a wide corridor, ranging from the Gulf of Mexico, all the way to the Arctic, a territory, sneeringly described by James Howard Kunster as “where Dolly Parton meets Hitler” (Kunstler also assumes a partitioning of America). The latter part, Europe should help creating, if necessary militarily and give Washington the Berlin-1945 treatment, together with constitutionalist American insurgents. The partitioning of America, making America effectively neutral, would be sufficient in itself, an alliance with a European majority in North-America of say 150 million is a ‘nice to have’. But Paris-Berlin-Moscow of 700 million should alone have sufficient gravitas to defend itself and balance/contain China.

The greatest European strength in comparison with America is that the latter is much further down the road of multicultural destruction. Europe is, say 15-20 years ‘behind’. According to Paul Craig Roberts, the US will be a third world country by 2024. Another conservative, Pat Buchanan, also thinks that the US could fall apart by 2025. Let it fall apart, the sooner, the better. America in its present shape is gone, good riddance.

[*] the writer of these words is a Dutch Saxon, with five centuries of unbroken Dutch-Protestant heritage in his DNA, a fact that is still responsible for far easier communication with British, Americans and Canadians than with say Catholic, Dutch speaking Flemish people. Holland, not Britain is the Genesis of Anglosphere, a historic fact we will elaborate later on. So why this seemingly ‘betrayal’ of Anglosphere? Because the future of Europe is more important than that of Anglosphere, even for Anglos themselves, if they know what’s good for them (don’t hold your breath). Anglosphere represents a group of conquered people, who are being used to conquer the world in the interest of another group of people, let’s call them bankers, who are deeply hostile to European civilization and would like to see it destroyed (via multiculturalism). And as long as the Anglos continue to let themselves being used for this purpose, we Europeans can’t have their best interest at heart. As a consequence of ‘modern values’, the European race has become a dying race. If you want to change that, you have to kill modernity and help topple Anglosphere, the original promoter of these values. China and Russia won’t require us to commit suicide, but America does. That’s why America and the rest of Anglosphere needs to go. If Anglos are lucky, a part of them will end up in Eurosphere. If not, enjoy the Gulag.

1984_fictious_world_map
The world according to George Orwell, “1984”. Orwell believes in Paris-Berlin-Moscow, China and the Caliphate and so do we. And Orwell believes in a totalitarian Oceania (pink), that’s you, Anglosphere. If the Gulag could happen to Russians, it can certainly happen to Americans, who have a weaker sense of identity than Russians. Commie Wallerstein and his ilk obviously want an alliance between Oceania and China, we Europeans in contrast want Eurosphere. The sacrifice of Australia could be the decisive factor in bringing that alternative world about.

Heinberg – The Great Burning

Published 16 apr. 2015
In this short video, Richard Heinberg explores why The Great Burning — the combustion of oil, coal, and natural gas — must come to an end during the next few decades. If the twentieth century was all about increasing our burn rate year after blazing year, the dominant trend of twenty-first century will be a gradual flame-out.

This video is the second in a four-part series by Richard Heinberg and Post Carbon Institute. The themes covered in these videos are much more thoroughly explored in Heinberg’s latest book, Afterburn: Society Beyond Fossil Fuels.

Joe Biden and the NWO

nwo-biden

Many people believe that the “New World Order” (NWO) is a concept for “conspiracy theorists”, operating from mum’s basement or “internet cooks”, like Alex Jones. That’s not the case. The US elite uses that concept itself as well, see the article from the Wall Street Journal of 1992, written by the current vice-president Joseph Biden. It is absolutely clear what the NWO stands for: complete US hegemony over the planet. It is also clear that the Pentagon, WSJ and Biden himself support the grand strategy.

It is interesting that Biden admits that a ‘solid bank balance’ is also a necessary ingredient of being able to dominate, because in 2015 that condition is no longer fulfilled. Furthermore, Biden advocates that ‘rogue states’ should be destroyed in an early phase, without defining what a ‘rogue state’ is. Perhaps any state that challenges the dominance of the US, like Iraq, Iran, Russia or China? Biden also makes it clear that he does not want Germany and Japan to play a greater military role.

But that was 1992, a time when:

  • Berlin Wall came down and Soviet-Russia evaporated
  • Three years before the beginning of the internet
  • China still nowhere to be seen
  • No euro

Meanwhile, we are living in this world:

2000-years-economic-history
Two most striking features: meteoric rise of China and rapid decline of the US, with Europe and Russia consolidating. These trends continued between 2008-2015 and according to the World Bank, China has overtaken the US in 2014.

The main actors behave as follows:

  • The US is losing the economic competition to China and Germany (the world’s largest exporter). Every year US debt increases with $6-8 trillion. The US tries to isolate Europe from Russia, so it can keep the Euro-bitch for itself. Tries to escalate military conflict wherever it can, currently in Ukraine. US strategy is to provoke Russia to invade Ukraine and reignite a second cold war.
  • China is still very prudent and avoids direct confrontations, but is working towards eliminating the dollar from its international trade. Has a ‘Silk Road‘ Eurasian grand strategy of building trade routes through the Eurasian landmass and thus avoiding confrontation with the US at sea.
  • Russia is standing up against the NWO and China supports this, but for the moment China loves to hide behind Russia’s back. Russia tries to avoid to break with Europe.
  • Europe has meanwhile the largest economy on earth, but embarrassing weak political leadership, which struggles not to let the Ukrainian conflict escalate and also avoid to break with Russia.

How is this going to be played out?

If nothing happens, the world will gradually ‘dedollarize’, the US will slide further into debt and at some point the world will no longer accept the dollar as payment. That means that Washington will be without international buying power and that means that the US will default. Expect the US to fall apart, when Washington can no longer distribute handouts. This is the most likely scenario.

Obviously the US oligarchy will attempt to avoid this scenario and provoke a larger war, it can use as a pretext for extra-ordinary measures at home and turn the country into a police state. Focal point to generate conflict: Ukraine.

Wild card events: revolution in Saudi-Arabia and a war in the Gulf. This will automatically drive Europe into the arms of Russia for oil and gas deliveries.

But in all scenarios, the most likely end result will be:

– a multi-polar world with Paris-Berlin-Moscow and China as the two dominating political forces in the world of the 21st century
– a balkanized America.

Putin 2015 Q & A

Complete national 2015 Q&A session.

Apparently, Vladimir Putin has fully recovered, if he has been ill at all. Perhaps the recent ‘radio silence’ was a necessary break, perhaps just a prank, Putin played with the rest of the world. Again Putin acting as a real leader should, addressing concerns of ordinary citizens of a cohesive homogeneous population in an impressive marathon session of many hours.

Russia represents the right ‘Gaullist model’ for European nations, not the wannabee imperial USA. The political challenge for the coming decade or so is to figure out how to dump the US sarcophagus of European civilization with the least amount of damage for Europe, meaning avoiding to drive the US into the arms of China. The answer is secession.

JuiceBox 8.6 kWh Storage

juicebox-advanced-residential-energy-storage-system

The US company JuiceBoxSolar brought a 8.6 kWh energy storage system to the market, specifically designed to support a domestic solar system. This kind of storage provides for the missing link between electricity production during the day and electricity consumption at night, when people return home from work. The system is advertised as maintenance free for a minimum of ten years and can be installed outdoors, against a wall.

Editor: the price is still a mystery and for that reason probably high.

We’re In!

Invaders and gate crashers, newly arrived in Italy from the South, using their smart phones to tell their folks at home that they made it to the promised lands. The welfare system and petty crime is next on the menu, since they will never add anything of substance to society.

The average employee of the Dutch immigration service IND will tell you in private that less than 2% are real refugees, the rest just tries, backed by a traitorous and totally corrupt ‘human rights’ political class, the despicable 1968 generation.

A Dutch social researcher Pieter Lakeman, who in 1999 wrote the book “Binnen zonder kloppen” (“Entering without knocking”), calculated that the average working Dutchman had to work one whole month per year to pay for the immigration idiocy: asylum procedures, handouts, crime fighting, prisons, the lot. And that was 16 years ago. European politicians, acting on orders of the US are claiming that this gigantic suicide represents nothing less than a core ‘European value’.

According to a Dutch government agency (CBS), a whopping 65% of all Moroccan youth, has been arrested at least once by the police. Even the government, the instigator of the drama, calls these figures ‘shocking’.

The Third World is a deadly threat for the continued existence of European civilization and continued mass immigration a crime against our posterity. Never before has a civilization embarked on such an insane suicide program. The earlier China challenges and defeats the US and the earlier the western financial collapse comes, the better it is. Smash modernity!

Marco Rubio is Going to Bring Us a New American Century

After la Clinton announced that she will be running for the Democratic nomination, a Republican candidate stepped forward, promising his supporters that he would bring them another American Century, just like that. The last time somebody spoke about that topic, actually it were the neocons who did that, was shortly before they the boxcutter crowd organized 9/11.

After the intervention in Iraq spectacularly failed, effectively handing the country over to that country that bravely defies the NWO until today, Iran, the neocons quietly dropped their PNAC idiocy, but apparently nobody briefed this Rubio chap about it.

Actually, we don’t think that the Republican party will win the next election, not that it really matters which party wins. When election day is over, the oligarchy will continue to rule as if nothing happened, because nothing happened indeed.

What is interesting though is that if the Democratic party does win, it will probably win for ever, due to the profound demographic changes in that once happy nation. But when it starts to dawn to the Republicans that they will will never again win any election in the future, for the simple reason that the US will gradually become a needy ‘gimmy dat’ third world slum, it could happen that even the Republicans will understand the futility of their efforts and throw the towel in the ring.

That could be the moment for the European-American supporters of the Republican Party to blow up the system and secede. European Americans as the new Serbs or Donbas Russians.

What’s Going on in Yemen?

yemen-redsea

For some time we accepted the official western narrative that the conflict in Yemen is between Saudi-backed Sunni’s and Iranian-backed Shi’ites. That’s not the case. The rebel Houthi group maybe a predominantly Shi’ite group, but it does include Sunni’s as well. And there are hardly ties between Iran and the rebels.

The slogan of the Houthi’s is: “death to America, death to the Jews“, not “death to the Sunni’s“. It always pays to listen carefully.

*** The real conflict is about whether Yemen is going to remain a US satellite or not. ***

The ousted president Abd-Rabbuh Manṣour Al-Hadi was a US stooge, enabling the US to establish military bases in Yemen. Meanwhile, the Americans were forced to leave Yemen. Now America ‘leads from behind’ in setting up its remaining Middle Eastern proxies Saudi-Arabia and Egypt against Yemen, in order to attempt to bring Yemen back into the US empire.

The real (and only) geopolitical significance of Yemen is its location at the entrance of the Red Sea. Controlling that entrance means controlling one of the most important shipping lanes in the world with virtually all traffic to Europe and, not to forget, Israeli submarines from Israel to the Gulf.

Think about scenes like these in Egypt. There is no defense against missiles fired from the shores of Yemen.

Story describing that Russia, Europe and China managed to evacuate their citizens safely from Yemen, but that the US didn’t. Not sure if it correct to attribute that solely to ‘American cowardice’. The Houthi’s simply don’t like Americans, but perhaps were inclined to give the others a free pass.

Roaring Twenties and Dirty Thirties

The ‘Roaring Twenties‘ were the years before the global collapse of 1929. The world was already truly globalized, Europe ruled politically, Argentina was an important country, but sleeping giant USA was already the largest economy by far.

And then, out of the blue, the Wall Street crash occurred. Nobody saw it coming, but then: what do people see coming? The fall of the Berlin Wall? The Arab Spring? The atom bomb? 9/11? The internet?

Dirty Thirties. Could they return?

Unfunded US liabilities exceed $200 trillion and the government accumulates $8 trillion new debt every year. The western financial system is a dead man walking.

Here a series of 4 articles making the case that we are on the verge of another global economic collapse.

[part 1][part 2][part 3]

In the meantime, as the dollar loses its world reserve status, it loses the ONLY pillar of support keeping its value somewhat stable. As the dollar falls, U.S. citizens will be reduced to Second World or Third World economic expectations. Employment and wages will continue to dissolve, while the margins between the “haves” and “have nots” will continue to grow.

Editor: it is difficult to see how the US can remain in one piece if the “American Dream” is over for good and it no longer makes sense to persist in the current prevalent “don’t rock the boat” behavior.

Der Spiegel Tracker

stoppt-spiegel-jetzt

This site not just follows events in the sphere of geopolitics and energy, but also openly promotes a Gaullist political model for Europe: Europe of the Fatherlands or Paris-Berlin-Moscow, that should replace the West after the end of American era. The West needs to be abolished and replaced by the North…

worldmap2

…that is a civilization with continental Europe as its political center of gravity plus middle-American territories and large parts of Canada.

Oh, and it is also the model for the president of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin.

As a consequence we reject the US aspirations of a global empire (“NWO”) under the leadership of Washington, because it would mean the end of European civilization and favor a multi-polar world instead. Once you have set your political goals, as a next step you need to identify the enemy, that is those who support the NWO, that is the Western media. One of the most sophisticated Western media outlets is the German der Spiegel. The idea is to regularly add pointers to articles with short comments, to expose the agenda of der Spiegel and the Western media in general.

[Auftritt bei Pegida: Vom Wilders verdreht] 14-04-2015
Der Spiegel reports about the speech Geert Wilders held yesterday in Dresden for Pegida supporters. Der Spiegel attacks Wilders, but not with brute force, by attempting to downplay the arguments made by Wilders. But in reality, Wilders and der Spiegel are not really enemies, both operate on behalf of the communist New World Order, a secular world, without nations and borders. Wilders attacks Islam and tries to demonize it and attempt to remove the belief system from the heads of the Muslims. Wilders is not really a Dutch nationalist, but a neocon in disguise. Both Wilders and der Spiegel operate in the interest of Washington. Our anti-NWO attitude is that we are not interested in a confrontation with Islam, we just want to keep it out; at home they can do what they want. We want a multi-polar world, where Europe and the Caliphate exist next and independent of each other. In that light it becomes understandable why we ‘secretly’ love ISIS. Because the more fundamentalist these people behave, the more difficult it becomes for our local commies to keep advocating that Europeans should mix with Muslims. Der Spiegel tries to downplay the level of ‘fundamentalism’, a lie. Read this to learn what Muslims living in western Europe really think.

Dutch History Illustrated by ‘Schoolplaten’

Krijgsraad-voor-de-vierdaagse-zeeslag-1666
1666 – Dutch fleet preparing for yet another battle against the British.

Yours faithfully had the privilege to attend primary school during the golden early sixties in the Netherlands and regularly thinks back with nostalgia to the class room, the three rows of two-seat-benches (‘schoolbanken‘) with build-in ink pots, the maps and the headmaster teaching history.

But the point of this post are the ‘schoolplaten‘, no need to translate that word into English, on the walls, mostly illustrating the great moments in Dutch history. Spending a weekend collecting almost all of them and put them in chronological order and adding comments, is all in all a very pleasant task.

A schoolplaat is a piece of hard carton with typical size of 80 x 110 cm, sometimes reinforced at the corners with a piece of iron and a picture painted on it, that is not directly High Art, but sufficiently attractive and above all lovingly made. The purpose was education of children, the first ones were brought to Holland from Germany in 1839, but from 1857 on-wards they were all Dutch made by artists like Jetses, Ising, Bueninck and many others and served their purpose until the sixties, after which they went out of fashion. The pictures usually have an idyllic character, the harsher aspects of life are avoided and Dutch history is presented in a positive light only.

Giscard d’Estaing: Crimea’s Return in Accord With History

Another important signal that there is significant European resistance against the US effort to set Europe up against Russia. Take Valery Giscard d’Estaing, who was president of France, between 1974-1981, an aristocrat, with Louis XIV and Charlemagne in his lineage. He has zero problems with the return of Crimea to Russia.

Concerning the “return” of Crimea to Russia, very frankly, I judge it in conformity with history. I’ve re-read books describing Russian history of the 18th century. Crimea was conquered in the reign of Catherine II, with the predominant lead of prince Potemkin, when Russia went south toward Turkey with the idea of reconquering Constantinople. The conquest of Crimea was rather harsh, but it was not at the detriment of Ukraine, which did not exist, but at the expense of a local sovereign who depended on Turkey. Since then, it has not been populated by anyone but Russians. When Nikita Khrushchev wanted to increase the weight of the Soviet Union in the UN, which was then aborning, he invented Ukraine and Bielorussia to give two more votes to the Soviet Union, and he gave Ukraine authority over Crimea that it had never had before…

To see the matter clearly, you have to ask what really happened a year ago in the Ukrainian capital. What role did the CIA play in the Maidan revolution? What is the meaning of the systematic anti-Russian policy conducted by Barack Obama? Why did the US want to advance their pawns in Ukraine?…

Did the Americans have an interest in the fall of the Russian economy? But for Europe, the Russians are partners and neighbors

I hope the diplomacy of France will take Europe’s leadership in the search for a political solution in Ukraine. This solution seems to be that of a multi-ethnic confederation, on the model of Switzerland and its cantons, with one part russophone, one part Polish, and one part intermediary — a system at once federal and confederal, under the aegis of the Europeans and supported by the UN…

What is for sure is that Ukraine will not get in to the European system; it’s impossible! Ukraine has neither the necessary economic maturity nor the practical politics. Her place is in between two spaces, Russia and the European Union, with which she must maintain normal relationships. As for the admission of Ukraine into NATO, not in question, and France has reason to oppose it!

Editor: children, drunkards and old men out of office speak the truth. It is quite clear why the rightwing French daily Le Figaro did not publish this interview: this is not in line with the official neocon policies of the West. But Valery Giscard d’Estaing, Dominique de Villepin, Gerhard Schroeder, Helmut Schmidt, Wolfgang Schluessel and many others, who have spoken out in favor of Russia, can’t be ignored. If America thinks it can unleash another world war in Europe, they could be in for a nasty surprise. First time a tragedy, second time a farce.

Californian Drought and the Power of the Lobby Groups

california-drought-desalination-2[source]
Water is getting scarce in California because of the seemingly never ending drought. Now the governor has decided that a consumption monitoring system needs to be in place to ensure that nobody uses too much. Except for the powerful farmers.

Agriculture accounts for 80 percent of the state’s water consumption, but 2 percent of the state’s economy. To spell it out a little more clearly: Under Jerry’s Brown water plan, it’s fine to use a gallon of subsidized water to grow a single almond in a desert, but if you take a shower that’s too long, prepare to be fined up to $500 per day.

Reason: agricultural lobbies have achieved that they are exempt from the restrictions and that water prices are artificially low; growers pay less than half of what city dwellers pay. If true market prices would prevail, there would not be a substantial agro-business in California, like there is none in the Libyan desert. Agriculture belongs in Iowa, not California.

Hillary Clinton Presidential Candidate 2016

Democracy means that it is you, and nobody else, who is going to decide which system certified empty suit will bomb Iran: Hillary or Jeb Bush. Representative democracy in a two-party system, where it is virtually impossible for third parties to break in, is completely meaningless. The US is an oligarchy, not a democracy and never has been. But by taking the trouble to walk to the voting booth, you the voter give the system legitimacy, so it can call itself a ‘democracy’ and create the excuse for the oligarchy to ‘export democracy’ to other territories. The US is just as democratic as North-Korea (but the US Constitution still makes all the difference). Continental Europe with its multi-party systems is a little better in that there it is very well possible for new parties to break in and they do. But the real democracy in the western world is Switzerland.
