“Wij zijn de zwarte soldaten, want wij strijden voor vrijheid en voor recht!”
(We are the black soldiers, ‘cause we fight for freedom and for justice)
Thus went a marching song of the NSB, the Dutch National Socialist party (1932-1945). Of course, black referred to the color of their uniforms, not the color of their skins.
In some weird way this old song, like the men who were singing it and the ideas behind it, shunned by decent society, has regained significance in Europe. Taking a closer look at the EU, it is striking that police uniforms generally are also black, perhaps not always those worn by officers on regular duty, but certainly those of the riot police. Riot police in full gear are literally black soldiers. As such, they have been brutally suppressing peaceful demonstrations for over a decade now. For instance, police brutality—worthy of any “Third World” Rogue State—against the Yellow Vest movement in France has been particularly shocking.
At the same time, another kind of black soldiers has also been taking over the streets of old Europe. Not dressed in black uniforms, but black of skin, less tightly organized and commanded, these black soldiers are also waging a war against the peaceful citizens of EU nations. They are targeting women especially, molesting them, raping them, killing them and intimidating their men and families. These latter black soldiers are sort of operating behind the lines, behind the riot police. In short, there is actually a real war going on against the EU population.
Supreme command is in the hands of EU governments. Even though in most EU nations, the separation of powers is enshrined in the constitution, in practice that separation is not evident. Thus, EU governments are able to use a combination of often overtly abusive police action and the judicial system (judges also being dressed in black!) to subdue the citizenry and to control public opinion and public debate. The media, or the so-called free press, both private and public (with the alleged guarantees to ensure its impartiality, like in Germany), also plays a key role in controlling public opinion. Expressed in military terms, EU governments enjoy “full-spectrum dominance” in the entire public domain.
Under these conditions, it was not difficult to ban Russian media from the EU a few days after the beginning of the Russian Special Military Operation in the Ukraine on February 24, 2022. The few voices raised in protest against this massive and unprecedented censorship were easily silenced and suppressed. It is perhaps no coincidence that EU censorship was decreed by a German, namely the president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen. Germany is the European nation that has enjoyed the longest continuous censorship and strict media control anywhere: ever since Hitler ended press freedom in 1933, the Germans have been living with controlled media and the curtailment of speech. Free speech has now been banned in Germany for almost a century! Today, the very policies first applied by the nazis have become the norm and standard all over the EU.
An essential tool for managing and controlling public debate is to ridicule and frame the opposition. Thus anybody who does not buy into the official narrative is branded a “hater,” “denier” or “conspiracy theorist.” On that account alone, it is suggested such people are unfit to participate in the public debate. If they do so nonetheless, sharper weapons are produced. In that case, it is stated the culprit has “dangerous ideas” or that he is a “potential terrorist.” As such he needs to be taken care of, for instance thrown in jail or subjected to psychiatric treatment. Numerous EU journalists and others saying unwelcome truths have been indicted, thrown in jail or interned in a psychiatric ward. In case someone proves particularly difficult to deal with, he is eliminated by way of a car accident, a “lone wolf” or a suicide.
Fortunately, those violent methods rather rarely need to be applied. State censorship with the help of the police and kangaroo courts takes care of most cases. And even before that, the maintaining of “community standards” on social media such as Facebook, Apple (I-phone), Google, Youtube, Instagram, Amazon (until recently, Twitter as well) and other platforms filters out the vast majority of “crimethink.”
However, for the powers that be in the EU, it would be a bad thing if all citizens would join in the goose stepping march towards fascist heaven. Without a moderate, but controlled and directed level of crimethink, there would be little use for all those black soldiers, whose ranks are swelling daily by entire boatloads of “asylum seekers” brought in upon covert EU orders. The venerable adage of divide and rule has been dusted off and guides the policies of most EU governments and the European Commission.
Actually, the EU governments use shrewd tactics to increase social unrest and anxiety, thus furthering their agenda for total control of the population. This method is based on the criminalization of “hate speech” and the covert facilitation of all kinds of crime by the “black” soldiers from overseas. In Amsterdam, 80% of crime is committed by young Moroccans. Whenever the perpetrators are arrested, they are usually quickly released without charges. If charges are pressed and convictions ensue, these tend to be ridiculously light in comparison with the offense committed. All the while the media dutifully observe instructions never to mention the origin or nationality of perpetrators in their reports. These are therefore described as “youngsters” instead of “young Moroccans.” As a result, whenever the media refer to “youngsters” the public knows these are actually Moroccans. Nevertheless, whoever publicly dares to call a spade a spade, is immediately charged with “hate crime.” Surely, there is no better way to foment social division.
Native Europeans feel betrayed, insecure and angry but are forbidden to vent their feelings. A controllable level of tension can thus be maintained indefinitely, because at the same time the public is being cowed into submission by way of daily doses of fear porn: about nuclear war, holes in the ozone layer, acid rain, climate change, the rising level of the oceans, melting ice caps, carbon and nitrogen emissions and deadly pandemics. The media parade endless rows of “experts” to explain and illustrate the horrifying details of each threat, as they make an appeal to “follow the science.” Experts with conflicting views are never invited to reflect upon the lurking dangers. These latter experts are routinely branded as “deniers.” In the process, the governments and media are actually helping to destroy the last vestiges of academic integrity.
There is always only one way out, one solution to the problem at hand. That is to obey the government and to do precisely as you’re told. Thus, almost a year after the beginning of the Russian SMO in the Ukraine, now that the EU has been engaged in cutting off Europe’s energy supplies and destroying Europe’s industrial base, the citizens are told to limit their use of water and energy. Turn down the heater, they are instructed, drive less, shower less, wear an extra sweater, buy less, eat less meat and switch to insects!
In the meantime, the truly looming danger of a financial collapse is hardly being reported on in the media that uphold the system.
With EU governments exerting rigid full-scale censorship, terrorizing their citizens with SS-like squads of riot police and overseas immigrants (often illegal aliens) with criminal inclinations, throwing dissidents in jail, liquidating them when necessary, while at the same time supporting a regime in the Ukraine that openly glorifies nazi ideology, one is made to wonder about the never-ending and ubiquitous lamenting about how bad those nazis really were. Part and parcel with horror stories about the Second World War, Latin American military dictators, the horrors of communist regimes and any other enemies far away and long ago, these whinings are a cornerstone of PC ideology.
Another epithet the EU governments and their most fanatical supporters such as Greens, Liberals and Social Democrats, like to throw at anybody who disagrees with them is “fascist.” This may actually be a bit like a fossil, an old leftover from a century ago when the left used to be attacked by uniformed street gangs, such as the SA in Germany and the Fasci di combattimento in Italy. Indeed, one may call such people nazis or fascists, if only because that is what they called themselves. But in a more objective sense, what are the distinguishing features of fascism as a political system? These include ruthless oppression of the opposition, censorship and control of every aspect of the lives of the citizens. The EU nicely fits that description. But the most important characteristic is that under fascism, both state and society are subject to the dictates of monopoly capitalism, in other words, of big corporations, including banks. This also happens to be the case in the EU. Whereas in nazi Germany and fascist Italy these corporations were called Krupp, IG Farben, FIAT, Ansaldo and so on, today they are called Blackrock, Vanguard, Amazon and Microsoft.
For many years now, EU legislation, taking precedence over laws enacted by national parliaments, is being written and prepared for passing by a veritable army of lobbyists paid by the monopoly capitalists. These hired hands outnumber the civil servants in the EU capital of Brussels. Instead of resisting, the eurocrats and the Members of the European Parliament and the European Commission concentrate on giving themselves pay hike after pay hike, setting an example for their colleagues in EU member states. Thus one might conclude that not only are the EU and its member states ruled by fascists, but by corrupt fascists. At least, for all their evils and shortcomings, nazi Germany and fascist Italy had significantly lower levels of corruption.
The Russian SMO in the Ukraine has helped to make matters very clear. The truly fascist character of the EU and the “West” in general (basically the US empire), is becoming ever more apparent. That is because underlying truths usually emerge out in the open during crises and wars.
One of these truths is that the EU is fascist to the core.
The author’s concern about Black men raping white women is redolent of images and speech from the Klu Klux Klan of the past century. I know nothing of these events, but if some non-white men are raping white European women, perhaps it is just pay-back (rape is seldom a matter of sexual gratification but a matter of dominance and punishment) for not only colonization of the past 500 years, but very recent and very vicious European attacks on Africa and Asia. These non-white migrants come to Europe for a reason.
Otherwise, the author is very clear that the EU checks most of the boxes for full-out fascism. All that is lacking is glorification of the subtle superiority with which Europeans self-identify, and the overt identification of external enemy, which Russophobia may supply.
There is no excuse for sexual violence against women, absolutely none!
Just the stats and nothing but the stats. I live close to the murder capital of Canada, broke the old record this year. On the surface ghastly, but what doesn’t show due to how news is ‘not reported’ to the public is the majority of those deaths are mainly in a specific group of hmmm….local residents. Debts will be settled.
There has been a sharp rise in ‘specific crimes’ in many EU countries. Mainly violent crimes against women that have not been seen on such scale before. Have EU men lost their freakin minds, their honour? Soccer thugs aside.
The stats don’t lie. What is a lie is omitting who is causing the rise is such crimes, it’s documented, it’s known, it is ‘not reported’. It is anti-woke to point the finger, one becomes an instant target, a racist. Great club to wield.
But obviously we can excuse domestic violence against women and this should be legalized in a totally rational and non-facsist society!
What’s the murder capital of Canada? My guess is a city like Toronto. Anyway, “breaking murder records” don’t tell an honest story. If you look at when the record was set and the population at the time vs the current population and the number of murders, I’m willing to wage a friendly bet the ratio is the same or even lower for a city like Toronto, which has seen big immigrant growth.
Good comment. The “black men raping white women” also seems like a dog whistle to me. Interestingly as you point out, it is a far-right extremist call to arms to protect “our virtue” against the “alien other”.
If crime is rampant, that is a social problem. Rape is rape, regardless of skin colour. The immigration problem in Europe has no one other than the EU and NATO to blame – EU for impoverishment of its periphery by its cartel-like trade practices, and NATO for making an unliveable hell out countries like Libya, Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.
Just wait till the armed to the teeth Neo-Nazis from Ukraine turn their attention westward.
The EU has been digging its own grave long before it sanctioned itself off cheap and plentiful Russian energy.
“Just wait till the armed to the teeth Neo-Nazis from Ukraine turn their attention westward.”
+1 They will make the Albainian mafia of the 00’s look like sunday school kids.
In an EU, where the “times of abundance is over” (Macron), the ground will be once more be fertile for ethno nationalism, being an ‘European’ will no longer cut it for the abandoned ‘pesants’.
Payback for crimes committed in previous centuries against innocent people today is as heinous as the original crimes. The KKK was a terrorist organization, predicated on violence. That has nothing to do with the fact that the elites of today have implemented “anarco-tyranny” which is to use the violence of the streets in tandem with the action of the police under the color of law to crush dissent among its citizens. One reason, although not the only reason, these non-European youth have been allowed in, was to serve as “storm troopers” in the streets, protected by “hate crime” laws. Of course, for these elites who use this hapless young as their “storm troopers,” said youth, acting on their unrestrained impulses, mean nothing; they are merely the fodder in their war against their own people.
There is no such thing as historical pay-back.
That is simply rationalization and excuses for hateful behavior by despicable individuals.
Crime & particularly rape often have a decidedly ‘racist’ cross-group character, not just in Western or modern society. Often such deeds are shielded by the “own community” where they would not be tolerated within the group.
Attempting to counter this by suppressing the truth will not help in correcting the relationships between various groups in society … sometimes rigorous measures are required to organize a better social order.
And you realize it is not ‘racist bias’ when your 5-year old asks you why the bad guys seem to be named ‘Mohammed’ so often. Also the modern shibboleth about rape not being about sex … if true, most rapes would end with failure to perform, as if you can command your body to perform!
It seems to be a common mistake to fully discredit (“cancel?”) political/social opposition based purely on their ideological assertions. Society throws around buzzwords such as “KKK”, “Nazi”, “Marxists”, “Wokester”, “Insurrectionist”, etc. in order to to create contrast and to avoid any sort of true debate, as engaging these zealots gives the perception of credibility to their beliefs. The fear of guilt by association only continues to foster both these forms of “extremism” and the increasingly fascist reaction by the common citizen. This is all predicated on the misconception that the average pundit/activist/politician actually understands society and how to foster localized economies of scope. This is why both Libertarians and Communists are so fun to debate, as they are proven to be just as naïve as the above mentioned outcasts when push comes to shove. The truth of the matter is that no degree of social engineering actually works when the family structure is not placed at the forefront of a given ideology. Foresake your homeland and society falls apart at the seams. This appears to be true for both migrants and those who embrace this mass diaspora. Perhaps this is why America is doomed to fail?
Danke für diesen Beitrag, welchen ich voll und ganz beipflichte.
Ich empfinde ähnlich. Die Stellschraube des Angstniveaus wird jedes Jahr fester angezogen.
Sei es Klimawandel, sei es die “Pandemie” usw.
Die Gespräche der Menschen untereinander erinnern mich an DDR- Zeiten.
Habe ein frivoles Lied um getextet als Satire auf unsere “Bundesregierung” (Alle Kabinettsmitglieder). Dieser neue Text sollte nun vertont und synchronisiert werden. Keine Chance. Alle angesprochenen Künstler verwiesen mich auf rechtliche Konsequenzen und die Sorge nicht mehr auftreten zu können.
Das hat mich sehr nachdenklich gestimmt.
Eine starke Frau sagte einmal: “Demokratie ist die Freiheit des anders denkenden”.
Davon ist anscheinend in Europa nicht mehr viel vorhanden.
Thank you for this post, which I fully agree with.
I feel the same way. The adjustment screw of the anxiety level is tightened more and more every year.
Let it be climate change, let it be the “pandemic”, etc.
The conversations between the people remind me of GDR times.
I wrote a frivolous song as a satire on our “federal government” (All cabinet members). This new text should now be set to music and synchronized. No chance. All the artists mentioned referred me to legal consequences and the worry of not being able to perform anymore.
That made me very thoughtful.
A strong woman once said: “Democracy is the freedom of those who think differently”.
Apparently, there is not much of this in Europe anymore.
This is the first time I have seen a coherent comparison of the pre WWII Fascism what we face in the West of Today.
Well written Hans Vogel.
The only point I disagree with the writer, is on his explanation of which political wing the Fascist and NAZIs emerged from in pre WWII, and which political wing which have hijacked Western Democracies today.
Communists were among the pioneers to the Fascist system in Italy, but the working class was too late to realize that they were to bear the burden to save both the state apparatus and the capitalists.
That is why Hitler admired Mussolini for cunning the Italian working class and why the communists in Italy hunted down and hanged Mussolini and his mistress at a gas station post WWII.
Hitler built the NAZI system in Germany after the Fascist system of Mussolini, and consequently the Communists in Germany were sidelined by National Socialism, supported by the German Workers Unions.
Fascism and NAZIsm is a conspiracy of Nationalists, Workers Unions, Zionists, and Corporations to save the state apparatus and big corporations, by exploiting their fellow man, and to invade new territory for “Lebensraum.”
So both the European Social democrats and Left wing parties of today has a Black past in support of Fascism and NAZIsm, but are accusing their opponents of today, of the totalitarian mindset they hold themselves.
Censorship is just slice of the pie there’s plenty more restrictions yet to come.
The war on agriculture: Netherlands is shutting down 3,000 farms to meet climate goals
The government in the Netherlands is planning to conduct forced buyouts of 3,000 Dutch farms with the intention of closing them down to cut nitrogen emissions in half to meet the country’s climate goals. As many as 11,200 farms will have to close, and another 17,600 farmers will have to significantly downsize their livestock operations to meet these draconian targets.
The plan could not come at a worse time because grocery prices are skyrocketing, and world leaders are warning about an oncoming food crisis caused by supply disruptions caused by the war in Ukraine and rising input costs resulting from the energy crisis.
In fact, the United Nations notes that the number of people affected by hunger has “more than doubled in the past three years, and almost one million people are living in famine conditions, with starvation and death a daily reality.”
Shutting down Dutch farms will make matters substantially worse because the Netherlands is the second-largest agricultural exporter, by value, in the world, with the USA being number one.
These farms help supply the rest of Europe with ornamental horticulture, which means flowers, meat, dairy and eggs, vegetables, and several other vital products that you can see in the graph below, which was produced by the Dutch government.
Not climate goals but bio-diversity.
Not nitrogen but ammonia.
It is about ammonia enriching certain protected patches of nature and displacing certain plants which grow only in poor soil. Most of these patches are not virginal nature, but became nutrient poor through past exploitation.
The problem is judicial activism, holding the Dutch government hostage because of international treaties and EU norms that they signed onto in the past: They have outsourced their sovereignty, and now they are unable to build roads or houses (for migrants!) due to legal injunctions tied to ammonia level measurements.
the nitro is needed for addblue $$$$
@Skip: “The plan could not come at a worse time because grocery prices are skyrocketing,”
To send grocery prices skyrocketing **is** the plan. **So is** sending fuel prices skyrocketing by forbidding people to buy cheap, reliable Russian hydrocarbons.
Down on the WEF farm, it is shearing time for the sheeple.
“You will own nothing and be happy.” (Or else!) — Klaus Schwab of WEF.
“We will own everything and be even happier” — Protocols of the Elders of WEF.
Some months back I was standing in line at a drug store and overheard a conversation by a lady in front of me who said that a relative who works on a farm here in the lower mainland of BC said to her that Trudeau wanted the farmers to cut back on growing food if not cut completely certain crops. The farmers told him where to go. The very thought telling farmers to stop growing crops? It was to say the least a troubling conversation.
It is a well known technique of rightwing extremists to portray themselves as liberals and freedom-loving folk. It lets them hide under a cloak of respectability and common sense.
Having scanned the above article (not fully read, as I’ve just eaten), and the editorial policy of this blog, it is immediately clear that the sentiments uttered by this person should have no place here.
Although trying to sound reasonable and oh-so respectable, a true fascist can’t but show his real colours. He simply can’t help it.
In the Netherlands there is another saying, meant as a warning:
“Hoedt U voor de als links vermomde rechtsen;
Mijdt hen als de pest.
Ze zijn erger dan de rest”.
(Free translation: “be warned against right-wingers, masquerading as Left.
Avoid them like the Plaque. They are worse than the rest).
People should stand guard against tendentious, hate mongering posts and weed out invasive, insidious articles like these.
Very true. Racist seldom think themselves racist. It is the nature of evil not to be aware of itself as evil, but think itself something pure and above good. Like the story of Lucifer.
Rape is a crime of violence and should be brought out in the open. I read quite a bit of news from around the world and realize crime in general is on the rise in Europe and the United States and a large portion of the crime is reported due to immigration policies. I don’t lean left nor right, but believe in free speech “without government interference” the saker has every right to control his blog..
Well, there is another saying, perhaps more pertinent:
« Scratch a liberal, discover a fascist. »
The problem with all ideological utopian activism is their missionary crusading zeal, tirelessly out to heroically convert the “others”, so that together we can change the path of history.
More prudent people try to achieve more personal balance & humility, finding strength in discipline and tradition, patience for the antics of their neighbours, convinced that embracing the good freely given by creation is a rather awesome challenge, let alone improving the world by stirrings of passion and revolutionary ‘understanding’.
The author is voicing some common sense; that does not make you a right-wing extremist.
“be warned against right-wingers, masquerading as Left.”
I’m sorry, but are you on the right page here? The article above is about Fascism masquerading as Liberal Democracy. The hypocrisy of which is like the stench and rot of human moral decay. Becoming of ammonia, literally. Where right is wrong and wrong is right. We are there.
Liberalism on it’s face, started as the separation of the “big pie” into many little pieces to satisfy a cacophony of self interest groups. Under the ostensible pretense of servitude and altruism. Leaving the world totally divided and splintered. And totally vulnerable.
Now insert a fascist government… no wait! The Fascist government (or “thing”) was there all along, masquerading as Liberals! A classic “wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing” ruse.
The whole world’s been duped. Not for the first time either…
These are NOT “rightwing” extremists… they are “leftist” totalitarian fascists.
You admit you haven’t read the article but you want it banned anyway. And then you call anyone who disagrees with you a fascist. You have, unwittingly, proven the author’s point perfectly.
I liked the opening – the Dutch song.
Recently I compared a list of European countries in NATO. I then compared it to a list of countries that fielded their own SS units integrated into the German SS. For example, the Dutch fielded 2 (!) SS Divisions. The French SS Charlemagne Division fought in Russia and was the last SS unit to surrender in Berlin in 1945.
Compare the list yourselves – easily accessible on the net. Just about every NATO member once had their own SS units. Pure coincidence? That Russia is still the enemy?
My conclusion is that fascism runs just below the surface of Europe. What we see is the occasional whirlpool that brakes the surface.
I’m of the opinion that large part of ‘European’ culture is fascistic by nature. More so in the ‘orderly’ Germanic/Protestant countries, a few nothces down in the Latin/Catholic ones and least in Orthodox ones.
The degree can be mesured inversely by the number of Gypsies still around. Ukraine is rising on the list lately.
Don’t know much about the situation in Holland but in Norway and Sweden there has been a huge rise in rapes by immigrants. Seen numerous videos on Youtube. Many of the police are afraid of being seen as racists so do not take the report or do a half assed investigation. The head of the main hospital in Oslo demanded more money because his hospital has been flooded with rape victims. Don’t know why the European feminists have been so ineffective. in the US we don’t have a problem with immigrants raping on the scale in Europe.
” in the US we don’t have a problem with immigrants raping on the scale in Europe.”
Immigrants entering the US (particularly those coming from the south) have a completelly different set of values compared to the ones entering Europe.
In Latin America rapists usually pay dearly for their crimes.
That is a good point.
This from telegram relates to the locations in which the nazis reside, and from which they extend their attempts to do nazi stuff. Recalling the Forest Gump principle, nazi is as nazi does…that’s how you can tell they’re nazis.
Pseudo-Ukrainian rabid mutts with Russian surnames, choking on their toxic saliva, declare that their enemy is located within the borders of Russia, from the West to Vladivostok. Rabies can not be treated.
It is much more difficult for us – our enemy is entrenched not only in the Kiev governorate of our native Malorossia (Little Russia). It is in Europe, North America, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and in a number of other places sworn to modern Nazis.
Therefore, we are increasing the production of the most powerful weapons of destruction. Including those based on new principles.
Moving along, “black men” is a rather non-precise term… Let us say “foreign criminals”.
The rapes we understand that are organized in Europe (and elsewhere), whether “spontaneous” or not, are, as Brother Sean the L. has said…well, let’s recall FDR> There are no coincidences in the political realm. It’s a “crypto-policy”…
“Lavrov gets it right by comparing European Union and NATO to Hitler’s old Axis” see> https://thesaker.is/lavrov-gets-it-right-by-comparing-european-union-and-nato-to-hitlers-old-axis/
As a witness over the post-W2 period residing in the America that died, it looks like a Republic that transitioned, decayed, into a nazinestofpervertsandstanists is making its last try…beware! They’re crazy with lust and fear…
Let’s face it, so-called Western Democracies are now reflective of the Stasi East-German State Security Services circa 1950-90. Large corporations and their (free press) propaganda wing aided and abetted by corrupt Governments, the very definition of a fascist state.
As their democracies flail their heavy handedness increases proportionally (often disproportionally) in magnitude.
France being a major nation, in the EU, has a word for this : Synarchism.
US WWII Mil. Intelligence unearthed this.
Synarchism, adopted during the Twentieth Century for an occult free-masonic sect, known as the Martinists, based on worship of the tradition of the Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte.
Joseph de Maistre, by Isaiah Berlin of British Intelligence, is dubbed the “first fascist.”
It makes no sense to try a left-right Anglo-kaleidescope . WWII US Military Intel. roughly said nazi-communist.
Synarchists are all bankers boys :
There is Schacht, THE banker of BIS, Hitler’s finance and economics minister.
I’d like to add another black ‘police’ and their derivatives to this article: Antifa.
Those entrepreneurs call themselves ‘antifascists’, but they are so ‘anti’ that from 180 degrees they shot through to 360 degrees: they use violence against people with another opinion, and in this respect they do exactly the same as the SA in the thirties, only the color of their shirts moved from brown to black.
And just as the Nazi’s, they have strong bonds with their financial masters, like Georgyi Schwartz, aka Soros, who also finances other fine ‘protesters’ like ‘extinction rebellion’, ‘last generation’ and any other paid nuisance.
I also would like to add that the classical distinction between ‘left’ and ‘right’ is artificial and dynamic. Where the left in the sixties and seventies were against war, in support of the common working people, and against big finance, how is that running now?
There are sites for undecided voters, where you can answer a bunch of questions, and then the site recommends which party suits you best. If you answer those questions with the party program of the NSDAP (National Socialistic German Workers Party, rings a bell?) of 1933, you’ll end up in the direction of Die Linke, die Gruenen.
It’s reflected in the MSM use of descriptions: there is no extreme left, just left, and no right but just extreme right.
There’s a book that I’d like to recommend. It’s “Europe, the dark continent” of British historian Mark Mazower, who points out that Europe having ‘democracies’ is more out of coincidence (or rather calculated convenience) than moral spine.
Btw, the inner cities of Nordrhein-Westfalen here in Germany are quite unsafe to go, especially in the dark. They are the terrain of immigrant gangs, quite some family gangs from Lebanon btw. I’m not sure whether there is some philosophical and/or ideological basis for their behavior.
Cheers and stay safe, Rob
Thanks for the book recommendation. Antifa and BLM backed by Soros, a common thread with the migrant invasion of the EU, colour revolutions, the great white replacement.
The UK media are 100% behind Nazi Ukraine.
Ukraine has demolished the Labour Unions and lowered the minimum wage, (if workers get paid at all).
The UK media are now attacking the Unions in concert for daring to ask for pay rises to compensate workers for Steeply rising prices which the Government has totally failed to control.
“Steeply rising prices which the Government has totally failed to control.”
On the contrary, EU regimes have **totally succeeded** to control rising prices — steeply upwards!
Food prices went steeply upward by EU regimes suddenly ordering farms to close. Fuel prices went steeply upward by EU regimes suddenly banning cheap gas from Russia on reliable long term contract, and ordering five times more expensive gas at opportunistic “spot price” from U$A.
The EU$A is an “elite” club, Little Man, and you’re not in it.
Oxfordshire County Council in England has voted to divide itself into six “15 minute neighbourhoods” with restrictions placed on private vehicle movement between these neighbourhoods. It will be possible to apply for permits to exceed the proposed restrictions.
First the world had the personal health lockdowns. That got us accustomed to being told what we could do out of concern for public health. Now we have what looks like personal travel lockdowns because, it is claimed, traffic is congested and parking spots are limited.
The given reasons for both of the cited lockdowns may be true, but, fascism is all about control. Get ready for more of it.
“Even though in most EU nations, the separation of powers is enshrined in the constitution, in practice that separation is not evident.”
Separation of powers in any government is a fallacy. The only separation is the tax consumers in government and the tax producers not in government. Most all people don’t know that and expect government to nanny them thereby effectively giving over their personal power to government and ultimately selling themselves into bondage. No sign of that changing anytime soon.
BRICS GOLD: THE GEOPOLITIC DIMENSION OF THE CURRENT FINANCIAL IMPLOSION
11 DECEMBER 2022
Prof. Sergio Porta .
[…] In essence, it is the end of the historical cycle of Anglo-American colonial domination of the world, described through the lens of de-dollarization. Such is the enormity of the stakes, such is the extent of the global telluric phenomenon in the power structure we are witnessing, the consequence of which is the shift of the earth’s axis towards the Eurasian steppes.
This shift, as the top exponents of the Russian Federation keep repeating, is an entirely inevitable historical determination. The foaming reaction of the old, now dying Atlanticist lion could cause some itching in the great body of the movement in progress, certainly not change its direction. And here, when you look at the management, things can get really creepy.
The scenario is that of the default of the United States, a scenario now upon us. The announcement of the entry of the Saudis into the BRICS, in a context in which the FED has printed gigantic quantities of money in the last three years, leads to hyperinflation and consequently to the skyrocketing of interest rates, and at this point comes the collapse dollar, bonds and stocks. Boom. End. But that’s still not the creepiest thing. The most disturbing one – says Schectman in the interview with Jay Martin – is this: one cannot think that the FED does not know all this, at the very moment in which it is the main protagonist. Instead, one must think that he is an aware director.
But this is, of course, conspiracy theory.
1:40 [Andy Schectman] I really noticed things starting to change in 2017, when all of a sudden the German Bundesbank caused a stir for requesting the repatriation of their gold. This was after a six year downtrend in the precious metals market. 2017 in particular was a difficult year for those who made companies in precious metals. Bitcoin had taken off, stock markets were booming, gold was languishing, and central banks were selling it off. It didn’t make any sense to me: why would central banks sell gold? Maybe because it was in the middle of a downdraft and there’s this new thing called Bitcoin that’s really starting to kick off, or maybe we were just moving away from the old way of doing things and moving into a new reality. In 2017, six out of 10 orders were for sale.
2:49 So in late 2017, surprisingly, the German Bundesbank which had started repatriating its gold from the New York Federal Reserve a year or two earlier, made a public case about it. They said, hey, send all our gold back to us.
It’s really important to understand that since the end of WWII the US has always held the majority of the world’s gold. The reason is, in short, that at the end of the Bretton Woods war the dollar was anointed the world’s reserve currency. In essence, we made a promise to the world by saying: give us your gold because it is safe here. We will pay you $35 an ounce for your gold and in return you take the proceeds and buy our US Treasuries. These will give you a return on a non-interest bearing asset which will be held in safe custody, and which we will resell to you whenever you want, always at 35 an ounce. It’s been like that for a long time since then, and we’ll get to talking about the moment when all of that changed shortly. Germany then in 2017 tells the West to give back their gold, and within a few weeks the Bank of Austria, the Bank of Hungary, the Bank of Turkey, the Czech National Bank, the Dutch National Bank followed suit and said the same thing: give us back our gold. And they’ve said it not only at the New York Fed but also at the Bank of England: we want to repatriate our gold. And that’s really weird right now, because we were in the middle of a gold downward momentum that has been going on for five to six years now, and now central banks were repatriating their gold. we want to repatriate our gold. And that’s really weird right now, because we were in the middle of a gold downward momentum that has been going on for five to six years now, and now central banks were repatriating their gold. we want to repatriate our gold. And that’s really weird right now, because we were in the middle of a gold downward momentum that has been going on for five to six years now, and now central banks were repatriating their gold.
4:44 And in 2018, the following year, those same groups that had repatriated their gold bought more gold than they had in the previous 60 years combined. So here was really something going on. These banks had repatriated their gold from the Fed and the Bank of England and were now buying new gold in large quantities. Very interesting. In 2019, these numbers increased by almost 100% in terms of central bank gold purchases. The trend was significantly increasing. Central banks were not only repatriating their gold, they were now buying new gold. And that puzzled me, until I got to milestone number one.
6:20 Milestone number 1. It’s 2019, and after the banks have just hoarded gold massively over the previous two and a half years and repatriated all of their gold, one wonders: Did they get inside information? And this is the point I want to address here: in April 2019 the BIS (Bank of International Settlements), i.e. the central bank of central bankers based in Basel in Switzerland, without saying anything to anyone reclassified gold as unique another category 1 asset for the world reserve. Now, from 1944 to the end of the war there had been only one category 1 asset recognized by central banks, and that was the dollar and US treasuries. They were a simply risk-free asset. And now, out of nowhere and very, very quietly, they lift the gold from category 3, where only 50% is valued on the balance sheet, at 1, where it is as good as cash. And that makes you wonder if central banks didn’t get this message from BIS: hey, take your gold home and start hoarding it! Well, I think the answer to that question is: yes!
7:20 Then, in 2020 we see other things that you can connect the dots to. One of them is Milestone number 2. What I’m about to talk about started a few years earlier, but has really taken off since 2020. I consider it perhaps the most significant event of our lives up to this point: yes it concerns the launch of the Chinese initiative of the “Belt Road Rail”. Most people I talk to don’t have a clue what this is, but it’s a hugely impactful and incredibly significant thing for the West and its future. Because it is the most ambitious infrastructure project ever attempted in human history. It connects Asia and Africa to parts of Europe and even South America. The old Silk Road, plus sea canals, bridges, railways, roads. This new infrastructure system will be reserved for military and commercial use. It’s like the Panama Canal, but much more important. But what people need to understand is that this specific little work will account for more than 75% of the human population and 45% of the GDP (net of new industrialization).
9:15 The contracts and agreements of the new Belt Road Rail are mostly settled in the currency of the new Chinese Digital Yuan. This is a very, very, very big thing, because in the past three years, the Digital Yuan has successfully transacted upwards of $20 billion in trades and deals, including for the Winter Olympics. I would call it a beta test. We’ll come back to that later, but it’s really a huge thing, one where 75 percent of the human population is starting to be indoctrinated into using a new currency and trading system. This ambitious infrastructure project is almost entirely devoid of American participation and completely devoid of dollar deals.
10:05 [Robert Kyosaki]: It’s like Marco Polo and the Silk Road, it’s a significant thing up to this point: Marco traveled from Italy to China and started connecting the dots, while the Belt Road Rail initiative, that the Chinese are undertaking using their concrete asset-backed CBDC (Central Bank Digital Currency) will switch 75% of the world’s population to the Chinese system.
10:54 [Andy Schectman] This is the beginning of building the infrastructure, both internally and externally, that is the foundation for massive de-dollarization. But we’ll get to that in a moment. Other things start happening in 2020 that really make me say, hey, I saw something here, no question about it. Suddenly the IMF (International Monetary Fund), a group of almost 200 countries set up in Bretton Woods, says to the world: we want a new Bretton Woods. What does it mean? It means that 200 countries around the world want a new standard, not the Bretton Woods standard, which is that the US dollar is the world’s reserve currency. They said it right on their website: we are calling for a new Bretton Woods. Wait a minute: whatever that means, this really got me thinking: it is something even greater than I had thought. When you have 200 countries from around the world, plus 1) the Belt Road Rail initiative; 2) gold which is reclassified in category 1; 3) all central banks repatriate their gold. And now: 4) the IMF wants a new standard! Now there is no longer any doubt that something is really going on.
12:05 And it gets even deeper. Obviously, in 2020 central banks are still massively accumulating gold, I mean massively accumulating it, mostly Russia, China, India and the BRICS members, the strong ones: Russia, China, India, South Africa are continuing to buy it. Then, we see something come out of nowhere on the Comex market, the metal exchange here in the United States. Every week the Comex commodity exchange publishes a report called the Commitment of Traders Report. The Commitment of Traders Report shows the positioning, long or short, of the major traders. Typically, these are just commercial banks and speculators, aka hedge funds, and if one goes long the other goes short and vice versa. It’s a zero-sum game, so to speak. Where money-hedging hedge funds will go long, commercial banks will go short, and vice versa. And that’s all I’ve ever seen in the Commitment of Traders report through 2020. Then, out of nowhere, here’s a new list of Commitment of Traders accredited, called “the Others.” Who the hell are the others? They are family funds and sovereign wealth funds. They are considered to be the most knowledgeable and well-funded private operators on the planet. And most of the trading these people do on Comex goes to something called “the Globex,” which gives them a little more privacy and anonymity. So, nobody really knows who they are, but what they did in 2020 followed exactly what central banks were doing: pulling metal off exchanges. What happened in 2020 is this group of “Others” started to dry up the market, the Comex market, for the physical asset. After no one had ever requested its return, in one year – in 2020 – more silver was withdrawn than was withdrawn in a typical decade, and more gold than the Bank of Japan has in its official reserves! So we have the best-funded and informed private investors doing exactly the same thing that commercial banks and central banks have done, namely: repossessing their metal and hoarding new. So here we are in 2020 where all of a sudden you see all these things happening: the IMF calls for a new system, gold is reclassified into category 1, central banks repatriate their gold,
14:52 And here we are in 2021, where we see Russia, and Turkey, and India, and Poland, and China, and Kazakhstan, and Hungary, and Thailand, and Japan, and the Brazil, and the Czech Republic and Turkey, all of which are buying gold. Nobody talks about it, due to its status as a risk-free and category 1 asset.
Now let me go back for a moment to what we talked about earlier about the dollar as the world’s reserve currency: The dollar, as far as national governments were concerned, was backed by gold. We (the US) promised the world: you can get back at any time all your gold you have accumulated with us, or even just the dollars you own, in exchange for your dollars at the set cost of $35 per ounce.
In 1971 however, near the end of the Vietnam War, President de Gaulle from France realized that we were issuing more dollars and treasury bills to finance the war than we had gold backing, so he sent warships full of dollars at New York Harbor and told President Nixon: We want our gold back for these dollars. And we gave it to them, which bled a very large portion of the gold reserves held in the US treasury. At that point Nixon said: ok, August of 1971, the shop is closed. Temporarily though it never reopened so it was a long time temporary. But we kept our promise to the world, and the dollar was never guaranteed anything from then on.
16:35 So what kept the dollar as the world reserve currency from then on? This question normally gets a myriad of answers, usually revolving around our military strength, or that we have the largest and most robust economy, or whatever, and I guess it could be argued that some of these answers are right. But what really kept the dollar the world reserve currency thereafter was that three years later Henry Kissinger was sent to Saudi Arabia to make the Saudis a promise: We will support you – he said – call it “joint military cooperation agreement”. . We will provide you with ammunition and support, and we assure you that no one will ever make trouble for the Saudi Kingdom. But in exchange for this, OPEC will value oil in dollars globally. All right – said the Saudis. So since 1974 every single country on the planet has had to own dollars to buy oil, which has created this synthetic demand for the dollar, called the “petrodollar,” and this fact has made the dollar the world’s reserve currency. If you want to bring energy to your country, you need dollars. It is the protection of the Saudi Kingdom and, consequently, the relationship with OPEC that has allowed the dollar since 1974 to remain the world reserve. Three years earlier, when the link to gold was severed, the dollar became fiat (inconvertible) money, because it was no longer backed by anything. Obviously, we all know the story: since then the dollar has lost more than 90% of its value. which created this synthetic demand for the dollar, called the “petrodollar”, and this fact made the dollar the world reserve currency.

Why not just give a short summary of the article and post the link if people want to read more instead of cutting and pasting a ridiculously long comment that has nothing to do with the article by Mr. Vogel? This is pretty rude and disrespectful.
The article has everything to do with fascism – which is the bankers response to financial implosion.
Thanks for translating that Gold article which on the web link is in Italian. Gold is my main asset so was interesting to read a well structured explanation of Golds worth. I had agood look around the web site & lots of articles are in English – the photo’s are just stunning.
Thank you very kindly for the post, Salvatore!
One remark about the use of words> With regard to> “extent of the global telluric phenomenon in the power structure we are witnessing, the consequence of which is the shift of the earth’s axis towards the Eurasian steppes”.
Most English readers will have to refer to a dictionary to discover the meaning of “telluric”.
“thalassocracy” = rule by sea
and the alternative (which we see now in juxtaposition to the fascist powers, more or less)>
“tellurocracy” = rule by land
Thanks again Mr S! Great long post!
Excellent article, spot on. The EU has become a cesspool under the control of a corrupt Marxist elite with a plan to terrorize and replace the white population with invading migrant hordes. The Bolsheviks tried to genocide the Russian population but the Russians survived through determination and self preservation, I do not see the same apathy and culling of Russians or Hungarians as there is in the EU. The narrow focus on the past 500 years of warfare/colonization/imperialism and the victim mentality is not a fair summarization of world history. Human warfare/slavery/bloodshed is not a western invention, this destruction has been going on since the fall of man, it has been going on since the fall of man beginning with Cain and Abel.
Very ignorant verbal diarrhoea. Most ‘refugees’ in the EU are not even black people, they are Arabs from the Middle East and North Africa. Moroccans and Algerians are of Arab/Berber ancestry, not negro from Sub-Saharan Africa. This author seems to have a problem internalising the humanity of black people and can only see the colour of their skin, which revolts him. Yet he dares talk about fascism. Ridiculous.
In this podcast by well known financial expert Luongo, which starts about Swiss neutrality – go to
45:50 and many here will not believe what happened on Sep 15th in Berlin…
Episode #122 – Pascal Najadi and How the Swiss Regain their Neutrality
“How do we live on?” France was swept by a wave of violence”
There is list of typical cases in France.
Bonbon, I’m an American living in Paris. Your comments are interesting.
I’m shocked at the nonchalance of the French people. My church, here, has had no heat or hot water for almost two months. I’ve heard that landlords are pressured to turn off the heat in buildings where activities take place that the state does not consider important. In a secular state, churches are irrelevant. Coffee shops and clothing stores, on the other hand, are warm. The heat in my apartment (3^e) goes off for hours. I’m under a blanket writing. My breath fogs my glasses whenever they sink down my nose.
Paris is the opposite of the frog slowly boiled to death — it’s more like a Jack London novel in which the guy messes up his last match, knows he’s going freeze and die, so takes a nap. So yeah, the temperature is slowly decreasing, people know it, but … whatever. Move along …
Everyone seems to understand that the US/UK blew up the Nordstream – it’s just a common fact. But whenever the word Nordstream is mentioned, the room goes silent. People glance to their sides nervously. I think it’s fair to say that a few people here are changing their minds about the EU, UK, NATO, US, etc., but it’s slow to happen and not widespread.
The only way things can radically change is if ordinary people force the minority elitists to bend to the their will. I wish i could say I saw this happening, Bonbon.
Question:Does synarchism in France have a Catholic tinge?
The EU has potential to do great things but corrupt elites are not allowing it to happen.
The same group of pigs runs things as they did 80-100 yrs ago.
They went underground after 1945 for 40 years but the same old practices have resurfaced.
Those instigating this live in secluded / exclusive parts of Europe, and many in Switzerland which is not part or or subject the EU, and or have remote hideaways across the globe, and do not see nor want to see how the average EU citizen lives. They also dictate US policy.
They have always been the problem.
They must be removed and their own actions I think have set in motion their own demise which is not far off and not avoidable now.
