EUROPEAN REFERENDUM INITIATIVE

November 17, 2016

Europe at risk of collapse

The European Union is in danger of breaking apart unless France and Germany, in particular, work harder to stimulate growth and employment and heed citizens' concerns, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said in the German capital on Thursday.
Read news report at reuters.com

Comment: French Prime Minister Manuel Valls is simply the latest in a long line of political and financial insiders to admit that that the Brussels EU is on the brink of breaking apart. Notably, back in August, Nobel-Prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz went even further when he stated that Europe is heading towards a "cataclysmic event" that could lead not only to the collapse of the euro currency but also the end of the Brussels EU itself. A former Chief Economist at the World Bank, Stiglitz believes that one more political event similar to the United Kingdom's recent decision to leave the Brussels EU is now all it would take to trigger these outcomes.

To replace the Brussels EU, what is needed is a Europe that genuinely acts in the interests of its people: a Europe for the People, by the People that rejects the profit over life model and puts the right to health, the right to life, the right to natural food, and the right to a healthy environment before the interests of multinational corporations. Not only is this vision of Europe possible, the need to create it is becoming increasingly urgent.

Dutch campaigners gather signatures to derail EU-Canada trade deal

Activists in the Netherlands have gathered almost two-thirds of the signatures needed to lay the groundwork for a referendum on Europe’s free trade deal with Canada, which they say overly favours the interests of multinational companies.
Read article in the Guardian (UK)

Comment: Like other transnational trade deals, the Brussels EU-Canada agreement (CETA) puts the interests of multinational corporations before those of ordinary citizens. With people throughout Europe and Canada becoming increasingly aware of this, opposition to this deal will inevitably – and, quite rightly – only continue to grow. Clearly, therefore, from a democratic perspective, the more able citizens are to express their opposition to such developments through national referendums, the better.

In this respect, the great fear of the corporate dictatorship that currently controls Europe is that the future political shape of the European continent will increasingly be based around the use of participatory democracy. In Switzerland, for example, the holding of national referendums is already commonplace. In that country, if enough eligible voters support a proposal, citizens are entitled to put almost any law passed by their government to a national vote. Similarly, Swiss citizens also have the right to propose almost any constitutional amendment they wish. Hardly surprisingly, therefore, while no country is perfect, Switzerland's unique political approach is seen by many as the world's most stable democratic system and a model to be copied and built on by others.

Brexit court defeat for UK government

The UK Parliament must vote on whether the country can start the process of leaving the EU, the High Court in London has ruled. This means the UK government cannot trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty - beginning formal exit negotiations with the EU - on its own.
Read article on the BBC News website (UK)

Comment: While a clear majority of people in the UK voted to leave the Brussels EU on June 23, the referendum was only the first step in a process that is likely to take several years to complete. Moreover, it should not be forgotten that there are widespread interests – both corporate and political – in the UK and Europe who will do whatever it takes to prevent Brexit from occurring.

Ultimately, for health, peace, and social justice to be possible in Europe, the future shape of the European continent has to be designed around the concept of a democratic ‘Europe for the People, by the People’. In such a model the interests of people have to come first, not the profits of multinational corporations.

To read about the constitution for a ‘Europe for the People, by the People’ proposed by survivors of Auschwitz and other Nazi concentration camps, visit the Relay of Life website. We also invite you to sign the petition in support of this constitution and share it as widely as possible.

José Manuel Barroso cleared of ethics breach over Goldman Sachs job

An ethics panel has cleared the former European commission chief José Manuel Barroso of breaking an EU integrity code for taking a job at Goldman Sachs.
Read article in the Guardian (UK)

Comment: Earlier this year, multinational investment bank Goldman Sachs announced it had hired José Manuel Barroso, the former president of the Brussels EU Commission, as an advisor and nonexecutive chairman of its Goldman Sachs International arm. With Goldman Sachs accused by many people of helping set off the 2008 global financial crisis and then profiting from it by defrauding investors, Barroso’s mercenary acceptance of the appointment predictably attracted widespread outrage. Given the historical roots of the Brussels EU construct, however, we should hardly be surprised that it has essentially chosen to ignore the controversy and clear him of any breach of ethics in accepting the job.

Notably, therefore, despite the extensive media reporting in connection with this issue, little attention has been paid to the fact that the road to Barroso being hired by Goldman Sachs may have begun at a meeting of the clandestine Bilderberg Group.

Euro 'house of cards' to collapse, warns ECB prophet

The European Central Bank is becoming dangerously over-extended and the whole euro project is unworkable in its current form, the founding architect of the monetary union has warned.
Read article in the Daily Telegraph (UK)

Comment: The statement made here by Professor Otmar Issing, the European Central Bank’s first chief economist, was simply the latest in a long line of predictions from financial insiders warning of the likely collapse of the euro currency.

Only 2 months ago, for example, Nobel-Prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz openly stated that Europe is heading towards a "cataclysmic event" that could lead not only to the collapse of the euro currency but also the end of the Brussels EU itself. A former Chief Economist at the World Bank, Stiglitz believes that one more political event similar to Brexit is now all it would take to trigger these outcomes.

Due to its fundamentally undemocratic structure – with the EU Commission holding all executive power and the EU Parliament serving merely as a fig leaf – the Brussels EU needs to be publicly rejected by its citizens, dismantled, and eventually replaced by a truly democratic system of representation: A Europe for the People, by the People. Until such time as this happens, the 500 million people of Europe will continue to remain subject to economic dictatorship, widespread unemployment, and a political model in which democracy increasingly becomes a thing of the past.

Hidden lobbying could go unchecked under poor EU transparency proposals, says watchdog

Industry lobbying activities could continue to go “unchecked” with insufficient Commission proposals for a new mandatory transparency register, according to transparency watchdog Corporate Europe Observatory.
Read article at foodnavigator.com

Comment: As we have often described on these pages, the ‘Brussels EU’ is not a democratic body. Neither its president nor its executive body, the so-called ‘EU Commission’, can be elected – or unelected – by the people. Even the ‘Brussels EU’ Parliament, which parades itself as a democratic institution, is little more than a ‘fig leaf’ that lacks fundamental principles of democracy such as the right to initiate new legislation. Under this antidemocratic system, transparency and the interests of the people of Europe are completely secondary to corporate profits.

As a consequence, restrictive pro-corporate protectionist laws affecting natural health in Europe, such as the Food Supplements Directive and the Regulation on Nutrition and Health Claims, have been deliberately designed by the ‘Brussels EU Commission’ to protect the trillion-dollar-a-year pharmaceutical industry and its sought-for monopoly on health. Despite over 44,000 natural health claims having been submitted to the Brussels EU for approval, for example, less than 300 have been given authorization. And this is despite over a century of scientific research now existing on vitamins and other essential micronutrients!

In short, the Brussels EU has no interest in restricting industry lobbying activities. Instead, it will do whatever is necessary in order to protect and even extend them.

EU leaders will look to exploit Brexit to create a European Army and break through ‘last bastion of national sovereignty’

Senior officials are planning to use the creation of a European army to relaunch the EU after Britain leaves.
Read article in The Sun (UK)

Comment: The Lisbon Treaty, which became law in Europe in December 2009, specifically provides for the creation of a Brussels EU army by legislating that member countries shall make civilian and military capabilities available to the construct. Openly backed by German leader Angela Merkel, not only could this give the Brussels EU direct access to, and possibly control over, nuclear weapons via French participation, it could also result in the implementation of civilian conscription.

With unelected Brussels EU Commission president Jean Claude Juncker already having called for the creation of an army 18 months ago, it is clear that, following the UK’s Brexit vote, the construct now sees the way open to push ahead with the plan.

The formation of a Brussels EU army is an unmistakable step towards securing the Oil and Drug Cartel’s global interests and markets through military means. In the interests of planetary peace and the lives of all 7.4 billion inhabitants of our world, we must oppose it.

Greek MPs to support calls for German war reparations

A Greek parliamentary committee is preparing to say Germany owes Greece €269bn in WWII damages, backing a demand made by the government last year.
Read news report at euobserver.com

Comment:The amount cited in the Greek demand for WWII damages includes repayment of an occupation loan that Nazi Germany forced the Bank of Greece to make in 1942. With the Greek national debt now amounting to over €300 billion, the settling of this demand in full by Germany would effectively bring an end to the economic austerity measures that Greece is currently subject to and free it from the control of the so-called Troika (the International Monetary Fund, the Brussels EU and the European Central Bank).

Meanwhile, try as the Brussels EU might to hide the truth, awareness of its Nazi roots continues to grow. First published in 2010, our book “The Nazi Roots of the Brussels EU” is now available in 12 languages. With copies continuing to be distributed and downloaded throughout the world on a daily basis, and articles about the book already having been published in international newspapers, the shocking truth about the construct’s origins is rapidly becoming common knowledge.

Set against this background it is clear there can now be no escape for the Brussels EU. One way or another change will come and the construct’s economic and political dictatorship will be replaced by a Europe for the People, by the People. It is no longer a matter of whether this will happen, but simply a matter of when.

'Euro was flawed at birth and destined to collapse' - Nobel economist

The decision to create a single currency without the institutions which would make it work was “fatal” for the eurozone, said Nobel-Prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz, adding that the “eurozone must ditch it now to survive.”
Read article at rt.com (Russia)

Comment:With even the Nobel-Prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz now recognizing that the euro is destined to collapse, the writing is clearly now on the wall for the Brussels EU dictatorship.

Increasingly, the citizens of Europe are realizing that the ‘Brussels EU’ is not a democratic body as neither its president nor its executive body, the so-called ‘EU Commission’, can be elected – or unelected – by the people. Even the ‘Brussels EU’ Parliament, which tries to parade itself as a democratic institution, is little more than a ‘fig leaf’ that lacks fundamental principles of democracy such as the right to initiate new legislation.

In pointing this out we should stress however that our Foundation is not against a united Europe. To the contrary, we believe that the future shape of the European continent has to be designed around the concept of a democratic Europe for the People, by the People. This is why we have been working so closely with survivors of Auschwitz, with whom we have been sharing this goal for many years now.

To learn why we believe the demise of the Brussels EU will lead to the rise of a Europe for the People, by the People, read this article on our Foundation website.

IMF admits disastrous love affair with the euro, apologises for the immolation of Greece

The International Monetary Fund’s top staff misled their own board, made a series of calamitous misjudgments in Greece, became euphoric cheerleaders for the euro project, ignored warning signs of impending crisis, and collectively failed to grasp an elemental concept of currency theory.
Read article in the Daily Telegraph (UK)

Comment: The IMF’s admittance of its role in the euro currency crisis comes only months after a statement by Lord Mervyn King, the former Governor of the Bank of England, who admitted that the financial crisis afflicting Europe since 2009 is essentially the result of a “deliberate” act of policy. Highly critical of the destructive economic strategies of the Brussels EU, Lord King predicted that, in order to free its weakest member countries from the strangulating combination of austerity measures and high unemployment they are suffering from, the euro currency zone will ultimately have to be dismantled.

In this situation, the people of Europe are becoming increasingly aware that the ‘Brussels EU’ is not a democratic body. Neither its president nor its executive body, the so-called ‘EU Commission’, can be elected – or unelected – by the people. Even the ‘Brussels EU’ Parliament, which parades itself as a democratic institution, is little more than a ‘fig leaf’ that lacks fundamental principles of democracy such as the right to initiate new legislation.

Seen in this light, the recent vote by the people of Great Britain to leave the ‘Brussels EU’ was a historic victory for democracy and the first step towards creating a better Europe: a Europe for the People, by the People. For despite what the IMF and other international institutions are trying to pretend, so-called “free trade deals” will not build a better Europe. This is because their primary beneficiaries are the chemical, pharmaceutical and petrochemical industries, the banks, and other multinational cartels. A better Europe can ultimately only be built by the people – and the time to start is now!

Post-Brexit EU unsustainable in its present form

The European Union, as it's currently constructed, is unsustainable in its current form, a global ratings agency has warned.
Read article in The Independent (Ireland)

Comment: The UK’s Brexit referendum decision on June 23 was a historic victory for democracy and the first step towards creating a better Europe. Moreover, despite how sections of the European and global media are trying to portray it, the result was not a victory for xenophobia or racism. To the contrary, it was a vote by a majority of concerned British citizens who refuse to allow the dictatorial construct in Brussels to determine all aspects of their lives.

The British referendum result – which fundamentally questions the legitimacy of the Brussels EU construct – is also a signal for millions of Europeans who are interested in the prevention of diseases: With the walls of the Brussels EU now crumbling, a new Europe is emerging with preventive healthcare being one of its founding pillars.

To learn how the demise of the Brussels EU will enable the rise of a Europe for the People, by the People, read this article on our Foundation website.

Brexit contagion: UK vote raises fears of a tsunami of EU membership referendums

The shock decision by the British people to leave the European Union has triggered fears that Europe could be enveloped by a “tsunami” of referendums across the continent as insurgent anti-EU parties look to capitalise on the momentous UK vote.
Read article in the Daily Telegraph (UK)

Comment: The vote by the people of Great Britain to leave the ‘ Brussels EU’ was a historic victory for democracy and the first step towards creating a better Europe. Moreover, despite how sections of the European and global media are already trying to portray it, this was not a victory for xenophobia or racism. It was a vote by a majority of concerned British citizens who refuse to allow the dictatorial construct in Brussels to determine all aspects of their lives. The result was a resounding victory of democracy over corporate dictatorship.

The inevitable consequences of the British referendum will be the demise of the ‘Brussels EU’ and the rise of a Europe for the People, by the People. The only question remaining now is not whether these things will happen, but when.

Brexit: Europe stunned by UK Leave vote

A wave of shock is reverberating around Europe as countries across the EU and beyond digest the decision by UK voters to leave the European Union.
Read article on the BBC News website (UK)

Comment: While we celebrate the result of the UK referendum, our Foundation is not against a united Europe. We believe that the future shape of the European continent has to be designed around the concept of a democratic Europe for the People, by the People. This is why we have been working closely with survivors of Auschwitz, with whom we have been sharing this goal for many years now.

As the Auschwitz survivors have distinctly recognized, building a new truly democratic Europe can only be done by the people of Europe themselves – not by corporate or political stakeholders. Moreover, this new Europe cannot be built by the creation of so-called “free trade deals”, whose primary beneficiaries are – again – the chemical, pharmaceutical and petrochemical industries, the banks, and other multinational cartels.

By voting to leave the ‘ Brussels EU’, the British people have struck an important blow against this undemocratic construct. Above all, the Leave vote of over 17 million people in the UK was a wake-up call for democracy in Europe. Now, the people of Europe have the chance to build a democratic Europe – a ‘Europe for the people, by the people.’ The time to start is now!

Dutch PM says he’s ‘totally against referendums’

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte today (13 June) admitted a referendum called by eurosceptic groups on whether to back closer ties between Ukraine and the EU had been “disastrous” after voters soundly rejected the pact.
Read article at euractiv.com

Comment: Whether Mark Rutte likes it or not, the future of Europe – and the world – will not be based on political dictatorship but on the increasing use of participatory democracy. In Switzerland, for example, the holding of national referendums is already commonplace. In that country, if enough eligible voters support a proposal, citizens are entitled to put almost any law passed by their government to a national vote. Similarly, Swiss citizens also have the right to propose almost any constitutional amendment they wish. 

Referendums are the future of democracy, and Mark Rutte if doesn’t like it there will inevitably be other potential leaders in the Netherlands who have a better appreciation of the fundamental democratic principle that it is the citizens of a country who should ultimately have the final word in all matters affecting them.

The way forward towards a better Europe and a better world is a political system that works for the people, by the people. If everybody works hard enough towards this, it can happen in your country sooner than you think.

More Danes want referendum on EU membership

Support for a Danish referendum on EU membership is on the rise, according to an Epinion poll conducted for DR News, the national TV broadcaster.
Read article at euobserver.com

Comment: It’s increasingly looking as if Great Britain’s vote on the Brussels EU may turn out to simply be the first of many national referendums to take place across Europe on membership of the dictatorial construct. As unlikely as it may at one time have seemed, a Europe for the People, by the People will eventually emerge and the reign of the dictatorial Brussels EU will come to an end. It’s simply now a matter of time.

EU Office Estimates Almost $1 Billion in Graft Last Year

The European Union's anti-fraud office said that almost $1 billion of the bloc's budget was lost to graft and irregularities last year.
Read Associated Press news report on the ABC News website (USA)

Comment: Not only is the Brussels EU undemocratic and dictatorial, as this story shows it is also utterly corrupt. A construct with a scandalous history of actively encouraging its officials to conceal information from public scrutiny, fraud and embezzlement have been widespread in it over the past twenty years.

Due to its fundamentally undemocratic structure – with the EU Commission holding all executive power and the EU Parliament serving merely as a fig leaf –the ‘Brussels EU’ is not reformable. It therefore needs to be publicly rejected by the people of Europe, dismantled and eventually replaced by a truly democratic system of representation: A Europe of the people, by the people and for the people.

Nazis created 'basic plan' for European Union, UKIP MEP Gerard Batten says

Mr Batten made the comments after Boris Johnson invoked Hitler to criticise the EU

The Nazis drew up the “basic plan” for the European Union decades before it was actually established, a UKIP MEP has claimed.
Read article on the Independent website (UK)

Comment: As we describe in our book, The Nazi Roots of the Brussels EU, the key architects of the European Union were recruited from among the same technocrats who had previously designed the plans for a post-WWII Europe under the control of the Nazi/IG Farben coalition. Based on literally tens of thousands of historical documents obtained by our Foundation from international archives, the publication of this book effectively means that the Brussels EU “experiment” is now over. No truly democratic person, organization or political party can possibly support the Brussels EU and retain any credibility.

EU Referendum: Boris Johnson compares EU's aims to Hitler's

Boris Johnson has compared the EU's aims to Hitler's, saying both involved the intention to unify Europe under a single "authority". The pro-Brexit Tory MP said both the Nazi leader and Napoleon had failed at unification and the EU was "an attempt to do this by different methods".
Read article on the BBC News website (UK)

Comment: Boris Johnson is of course correct to make this connection. The modern-day Brussels EU is essentially an attempt to achieve the same economic and political goals as those of Nazi Germany, but this time via stakeholders dressed in business suits rather than military uniforms. As we describe in chapter 3 of our book, The Nazi Roots of the Brussels EU, the Nazi blueprint for the so-called ‘European Union’ was drawn up in 1941, two years after the outbreak of World War II.

In Dresden, Germany, at that time, there was a little-known Nazi research institute headed by a man called Arno Soelter. In 1941, Soelter summarized the Nazi plans for postwar Europe in a book, titled: “The Greater Sphere Cartel – An Instrument of Industrial Market Order in a New Europe.” Soelter’s book describes ALL the key elements that we see around us in the Brussels EU of today. Examples include the unelected European Commission as the construct’s executive body, and the system of directives that are used for European lawmaking.

Confirming these historical origins, in the Nuremberg War Crimes Trial against IG Farben which took place in the German city of Nuremberg between August 14, 1947 and July 30, 1948, the legal counsel of Fritz ter Meer, a senior Director of Farben, specifically stated that the concept of a "Total European Economic Area" had shaped his client's war aims.

BREXIT CONTAGION: Now nearly HALF of Europeans want their own EU referendum

Nearly half of Europeans want their own in/out referendum on quitting the EU, a new poll has revealed.
Read article in the Daily Express (UK)

Comment: In this latest sign that public support for the Brussels EU is continuing to fall, a survey conducted among more than 6,000 people from eight European countries found that 45 percent wanted referendums on whether their countries should remain part of the dictatorial construct. Particularly significantly, 48 percent of Italians, 41 percent of the French and 39 percent of the Swedes said they would vote to leave if given the chance.

Regardless of whatever happens in the British referendum on 23 June, it is clear that the people of Europe have suffered enough at the hands of the Brussels EU. The time for change has come.

Germany pushes for European army

Germany is pushing for a European army in the 28-member EU bloc, according to a white paper put forward by the German government. The army is envisaged to have a joint headquarters and shared military plans.
Read article on the International Business Times website

Comment: In order to protect its multi-billion euro global markets in the fields of energy, nutrition and health, the Oil and Drug Cartel must not only eliminate any internal resistance within Europe. It must also take decisive action to defend its global investment markets in other areas of the world. Towards this goal, for some years now the Cartel has been actively pursuing the buildup of a European army – both conventional and nuclear – with Germany at its head.

As we describe in our book, The Nazi Roots of the Brussels EU, twice before, in WWI and WWII, the Oil and Drug Cartel took Europe and the world into the abyss. More than one hundred million people paid with their lives as a result of these corporate interests’ quest for global control.

Today, in the second decade of the twenty-first century, we are faced with the situation that these same corporate interest groups are undertaking a third attempt to subjugate the world under their control. This third attempt today is particularly malicious because the Cartel is hiding its obvious motives of global control behind the deceptive propaganda of peace. The Cartel’s political stakeholders are trying to convince the people that a Brussels EU army is needed in order to prevent Europe from repeating the dreadful experiences of WWI and WWII.

As we describe in our book, The Nazi Roots of the Brussels EU, twice before, in WWI and WWII, the Oil and Drug Cartel took Europe and the world into the abyss. More than one hundred million people paid with their lives as a result of these corporate interests’ quest for global control.

We now have to make a choice: Either we close our eyes and ignore these historical facts or we recognize our responsibility to prevent history from repeating itself and act. Clearly, the only way forward is to act. The first step to end the centuries of deception – that has kept millions of people illiterate about the real culprits behind the largest crimes in history – is to share this information with others.

Greece set to run out of cash by May pushing Europe into another crisis

Debt-ridden Greece is dangerously close to running out of cash and plunging the eurozone into a fresh crisis.
Read article in the Daily Express (UK)

Comment: As always with these types of media stories, the accusation that the poor state of the Greek economy is entirely the country’s own fault ignores some key facts. In a little-reported statement given on March 1st at the influential London School of Economics in the UK, Lord Mervyn King, the former Governor of the Bank of England, confirmed that the financial crisis afflicting Europe since 2009 is essentially the result of a “deliberate” act of policy.

But Mervyn King was hardly the first high-level official to confirm that Europe’s economic malaise has been inflicted on its citizens deliberately. In a barely-noticed article in the Financial Times back in 2001, the then president of the Brussels EU Commission, Romano Prodi, stated that he was sure “the euro will oblige us to introduce a new set of economic policy instruments. It is politically impossible to propose that now”, he went on. “But some day there will be a crisis and new instruments will be created.”

Due to its fundamentally undemocratic structure – with the EU Commission holding all executive power and the EU Parliament serving merely as a fig leaf – the Brussels EU needs to be publicly rejected by its citizens, dismantled, and eventually replaced by a truly democratic system of representation: A Europe for the People, by the People. Until such time as this happens, however, the 500 million people of Europe will continue to remain subject to economic dictatorship, widespread unemployment, and a political model in which democracy increasingly becomes a thing of the past.

Dutch voters now demanding referendum on TTIP

Dutch voters want a referendum on the TransAtlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), throwing into doubt the future of the US-EU free trade deal, nine days after the country’s ‘no’ vote in a plebiscite on an EU-Ukraine association agreement.
Read article at euractiv.com

Comment: A most promising development, this is democracy in action! The TransAtlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), also known as the Transatlantic Free Trade Area (TAFTA), is being negotiated between the Obama Administration and unelected bureaucrats of the Brussels EU. A highly undemocratic trade deal that is being conducted in clandestine, the talks are taking place under heavy influence of the multibillion-dollar global pharmaceutical investment industry.

The mechanism through which Dutch citizens are demanding a referendum on the TTIP deal is the Advisory Referendum Act, a law passed in the Netherlands in 2015. Under the Act, legislation can be subjected to a referendum if more than 300,000 citizens demand it. When a referendum is held, if a piece of legislation is rejected by more than half of the votes cast, with a mandatory turnout of at least 30%, its entry into force must be suspended indefinitely.

Thus far over 100,000 Dutch citizens have already signed the petition demanding a referendum on the TTIP deal.

Backroom Brussels? Report calls for EU lobbying clampdown

A transparency watchdog has called for legally-binding measures to tackle lobbying in the EU, following the release of its report that claimed permanent representations for member states were being left wide open to corporate pressure.
Read article at foodnavigator.com

Comment: It is no exaggeration to say that corporate lobbying in the Brussels EU is completely out-of-control. As researchers from theAlliance for Lobbying Transparency and Ethics Regulation have discovered, a request for lists of all meetings held with lobbyists from 17 European countries in 2015 led to only 4 governments providing some or all of the information requested. This is clearly absurd and bears no relation to the scale of corporate lobbying that is actually taking place.

In reality, the Brussels EU is a corporate-led dictatorship. Its executive level, the so-called European Commission, is controlled by corporate interests. The so-called European Parliament, meanwhile, has no right for fully independent law making.

The Brussels EU has proven time and again that it is utterly incapable of reform. As such, its corporate lobbying problem will persist until such time as the construct is dismantled and replaced with a model in which true democracy, rather than corporate interests, comes first: A Europe for the People, by the People.

Dutch Referendum Could Cause Trouble for European Union

A local, nonbinding referendum on a signed-and-sealed European trade deal might not normally make for high political drama. But if the Dutch say no on Wednesday to a two-year-old agreement between the European Union and Ukraine, the vote could cause major headaches for Brussels, the Dutch government and even the British one.
Read article in the New York Times (USA)

Comment: While, on the face of it, this referendum was supposedly about whether or not the Dutch people agreed to their national government signing a Brussels EU trade deal with Ukraine, in the minds of many voters it was never about this. Instead, the Dutch people – many of whom are aware of the construct’s Nazi roots – took the opportunity to signal their utter lack of support for its dictatorial style of government.

Meanwhile, with opposition to the Brussels EU growing across the entire European continent, on 23 June citizens of the UK will be voting in a referendum on their country’s actual membership of the construct. The choice at stake for the British people essentially concerns whether to submit to the increasing threats that are openly warning of “consequences” if they vote to leave, or whether to restore democracy and regain their country’s independence. Whatever they decide, one thing is already for sure in that the outcome of their referendum will ultimately affect the future of the British people for generations to come.

Britain warned it wields no power in German-dominated EU

Britain has little or no say over decisions made in a European Union increasingly dominated by German interests, Iceland’s prime minister has said.
Read article in the Daily Telegraph (UK)

Comment: For citizens in Great Britain, our exposure of the Nazi roots of the Brussels EU has been a particular provocation. Having twice previously – in WWI and WWII – played a critical role in saving Europe from takeover by the German Oil and Drug Cartel and its political stakeholders, the British people are now faced with the very real possibility that the extraordinary human sacrifices their countrymen made in the past may have been in vain.

However, in their upcoming referendum on their country’s membership of the Brussels EU, the people of Britain have a chance to break free from its dictatorship, restore democracy and preserve their country’s independence. But with European leaders already openly warning of “consequences” if Britain votes to leave, the Cartel and its stakeholders are clearly preparing to do whatever it takes to prevent this from happening.

Comment: With Britain’s referendum on its membership of the Brussels EU now officially scheduled for June 23, the resignation of John Longworth from his post as director-general of the powerful British Chambers of Commerce business group is a highly significant event.

Openly describing the dictatorial Brussels EU construct as “incapable of meaningful reform”, Longworth says he took the decision to resign from his position to enable him to speak out freely over the issue. The first influential figure to resign from a senior post over the issue of Britain’s upcoming referendum on the Brussels EU, he is unlikely to be the last.

Euro depression is 'deliberate' EU choice, says former Bank of England chief

Europe's deep economic malaise is the result of "deliberate" policy choices made by EU elites, according to the former governor of the Bank of England. Lord Mervyn King continued his scathing assault on Europe's economic and monetary union, having predicted the beleaguered currency zone will need to be dismantled to free its weakest members from unremitting austerity and record levels of unemployment.

Comment: Europe's current economic malaise is hardly the first damaging policy choice that the Brussels EU has deliberately inflicted on its citizens.

In a little-noticed article in the Financial Times in 2001, the then president of the Brussels EU Commission, Romano Prodi, stated the following: “I am sure the euro [currency] will oblige us to introduce a new set of economic policy instruments. It is politically impossible to propose that now. But some day there will be a crisis and new instruments will be created.”

As such, it can be seen that the ongoing economic crises in Europe are being created deliberately so that the Brussels EU elites can use them as a means of bringing in further laws that take them gradually closer to the political dictatorship they have desired all along.

Referendum contagion that threatens to paralyse Europe

From Finland in the north to Greece in the south, voters want a new say over their terms of EU membership.
Read article in the Daily Telegraph (UK)

Comment: The ‘Brussels EU’ is a dictatorial structure serving global corporate interests that are threatening the lives of hundreds of millions of people across Europe. Unless European citizens take action now, it will remain in place for generations to come and will subjugate the entire world under its control. Due to its fundamentally undemocratic structure, with the EU Commission holding all executive power and the EU Parliament serving merely as a fig leaf, the construct of the ‘Brussels EU’ is not reformable. It therefore needs to be publicly rejected by the people, dismantled, and eventually replaced by a truly democratic system of representation: a Europe of the people, by the people and for the people.

Dutch also want EU membership referendum, poll shows

A majority of people in the Netherlands want a referendum to be held on Dutch membership of the EU similar to the one taking place in Britain in June, according to a new poll by Maurice de Hond.

Comment: As we have been saying for some time now, the people of Europe are witnessing the beginning of the end of the Brussels EU. Throughout history, every empire that was built dictatorially and undemocratically, without the consent and support of its people, has predictably failed. The Brussels EU will not be an exception to this rule. Regardless of the outcome of the UK’s referendum on its membership of the dictatorial construct, citizens in other countries will inevitably demand their own referendums. Sooner or later one country will leave the Brussels EU, and the floodgates will open.

EU referendum: Cameron sets June date for UK vote

The UK will vote on whether to remain in the EU on Thursday 23 June, Prime Minister David Cameron has said. The prime minister made his historic announcement in Downing Street after briefing the cabinet. He said he would be campaigning to remain in a reformed EU - and described the vote as one of the biggest decisions "in our lifetimes".

Comment: In stating that the UK’s upcoming referendum on its membership of the Brussels EU will be one of the biggest political decisions its citizens will make in their lifetimes, David Cameron is of course correct. However, in campaigning for the UK to remain a member of the dictatorial construct it is clear he is deliberately omitting to make any mention of the construct’s Nazi roots. But he is hardly the first British leader to do so, of course. The true facts about the origins of the Brussels EU were similarly hidden prior to the UK’s first referendum on its membership of the undemocratic bloc, which took place on 6 June, 1975. Significantly, therefore, in a revealing article published in the Independent newspaper in June 2005, the millionaire businessman, Alastair McAlpine, who acted as campaign treasurer for the ‘Yes’ side in the 1975 vote, admitted that “the banks and the big industrial companies put in very large sums of money” to the ‘Yes’ side. The Independent also described how, according to an organizer of the ‘Yes’ campaign, Caroline de Courcey Ireland, the ‘Yes’ side additionally had the benefit of money from the European Commission, whose funding was used to charter a series of 100-seater jet planes from British Caledonian airlines to fly almost 1,000 pro-European speakers to briefings given by top level Eurocrats. Revealingly, de Courcey Ireland described the money as “a sort of special dispensation” from the Commission. In the run-up to their crucial vote on 23 June, the people of the UK should be prepared for even more skulduggery to be used by the Brussels EU in its desperate attempt to prevent them from leaving.

German lobbyists in Brussels: Fighting the corner of German business interests

Across the EU, more lobbying organisations come from Germany than from any other country.

Comment: Particularly notably, of the German companies and organisations that have the most contact with the bureaucrats and technocrats in the European Commission, Bayer, the pharmaceutical and chemical company, had 26 meetings between December 2014 and November 2015. This statistic illustrates the fact that, unlike in a true democracy, in the Brussels EU dictatorship the real influence and decision-making power lies not with the people but with multinational corporate interests. The people of Europe have neither control over the executive level nor even over the legislative process itself. Worse still, the parliament they elect has no right for fully independent law-making either. Thus, by any definition, it can be seen that the Brussels EU is a dictatorship.

Big Pharma Leaders Warn Against Brexit

Big pharma leaders have warned against a British exit from the EU ("Brexit"), reports the Financial Times.
Read press release at pharmexec.com

Comment: In a particularly notable quote in this press release, Roger Perlmutter, head of research and development at Merck, one of the world’s largest drug companies, said that Britain's withdrawal from the Brussels EU would be "challenging" for his company’s scientists, who had benefited from receiving grants from it. Notably, his statement came only days after British prime minister David Cameron had openly urged business leaders to campaign for Britain to remain a member of the dictatorial construct. As Britain’s referendum on its Brussels EU membership draws closer, it seems safe to predict that the multinational pharmaceutical and chemical industries will be doing all they can to terrify the British people into voting against leaving.

Don’t mention the Brexit: EU bans Plan B studies

European Commission economists have been banned from researching the impact of Britain leaving the 28-nation bloc, or even talking about it, for fear of getting embroiled in the heated British debate ahead of a referendum, officials said.
Read article at reuters.com

Comment: Prime Minister David Cameron has promised the British people a referendum on their country’s membership of the Brussels EU. With the vote expected to take place either this year or next, polls currently suggest a clear majority of people will vote in favor of leaving the construct. As such, far from worrying about getting embroiled in the British debate, the real reason Brussels EU economists have been banned from drawing attention to this issue is that the dictatorial construct fears their doing so could encourage other European countries to hold similar referendums – thus accelerating its own demise.
