Finland's membership of NATO off agenda at present

Finland's membership of NATO is off the agenda at present although the Finnish government does not rule out a prospect of this kind in the future, the Finnish ambassador in Moscow, Mikko Hautala said on Tuesday in an interview with the Moscow-based Kommersant daily. He said any country took an interest in having diversified plans of action and that is why nothing could be ruled out but the issue was not in the current plans. Finland is one of the five most advanced partners of NATO along with Australia, Georgia, Jordan, and Sweden. Finnish Prime Minister Juha Sipila said on June 11, 2016, in a speech at a congress of his Center Party that an application for membership of the North-Atlantic alliance would require a broad popular support. Opinion polls show that a possibility of NATO membership is supported by a minority of Finns.

Of course, President Trump also mentioned that certain circles in the United States keep on spinning the issue of Russia’s interference in the US elections even though they are unable to prove that.

No deal! EU up in arms over US - Russia sanctions

Brussels is preparing to retaliate if Washington adopts new sanctions against Russia without taking EU interests into account, according to a memo obtained by the Financial Times.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has requested an urgent review of Brussels' options for retaliation in the event that European energy companies and other business were to be targeted by the new anti-Russian sanctions being proposed by the US Congress.

The new sanctions' targets do include restrictions in the energy sector, and specifically target the Nord Stream 2 project, a joint venture involving Russian energy giant Gazprom and energy companies from Germany, France, Austria, the Netherlands and the UK to bring Russian natural gas to Western Europe via a pipeline in the Baltic Sea. The bill explicitly threatens to target European companies working with Russia on the project.

The Worst Ideological Enemy of the US is Now Europe

The vast majority of these European courts -- whether the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) or the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) -- in their attempt to be moral and just, have dismissed the sovereign laws of Italy as irrelevant, and trampled the rights of the Italian state and ordinary Italians to approve who enters their country.

In Europe, Amnesty International and the like are, it seems, a new source of law.

Those who gave the Statue of Liberty to America in 1886 "to commemorate the perseverance of freedom and democracy in the United States" are willingly trampling their own people's liberties today through courts of appointed, unelected, unaccountable ideologues. The danger is that, with the help of many doubtless well-intentioned, international NGOs, the EU will not stop at its shores.

British, Turkish warships arrive in Ukraine for NATO Black Sea drills

A British missile destroyer and a Turkish frigate have docked at the port of Odessa in Ukraine for a joint NATO maritime exercise, which comes just a week after the bloc’s massive Sea Breeze war games took place off the same shore.
The Royal Navy’s ‘HMS Duncan’ and the Turkish Navy frigate ‘Yildirim’ moored in the Black Sea port of Odessa on Monday, the Ukrainian Defense Ministry wrote on its website. Both ships, which belong to NATO Standing Maritime Group 2 (NSMG2) covering the Mediterranean, are expected to remain in Ukrainian waters until July 27.

“The program of the ships’ visit includes a joint exercise with the Ukrainian Navy to train mid-sea survival skills as well as surveillance operations,” the press release said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These nearly round the clock, NATO exercises in Europe and beyond, seem to indicate to me that something wicked this way comes, in terms of a potential military attack against Russia.

Unfortunately, just because something would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly thing for NATO and the US government to do, is no guarantee that they will not do it.

The demonisation of Russia continues, absolutely fact-free of any genuine Russian threat against the US or NATO.

Sweden to hold ‘biggest military exercise in decades’ with NATO amid fears over Russia

Sweden is preparing to hold what it calls the “first and largest” exercise of its kind in over 20 years involving all of its military branches as well as troops from several NATO countries, to boost its deterrence capabilities, the Swedish military said.
The exercise, Aurora 17, which is scheduled for September, is designed to strengthen Sweden’s defense capabilities and create a “credible and visible” deterrent that would force any potential enemies “to carefully consider the risks of attacking our country,” the Swedish Armed Forces said in statement.

Some 19,000 soldiers from all military branches are expected to participate in the exercise, which will be conducted in the air, on land and at sea. The major training areas will be in the southeastern Stockholm-Maelaren region and the Gothenburg area, as well as on and around the island of Gotland, not far from the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is completely senseless, unabashed propaganda; why in the name of heaven would Russia want to invade Sweden, when all Russia wants right now is trade and peace?!?

EU "Sounds Alarm" Over New US Sanctions On Russia; Germany Threatens Retaliation

Late on Friday, Congressional negotiators reached a deal to advance a bill that would punish Russia for its interference in the 2016 election and restrict the president’s power to remove sanctions on Moscow, according to the WSJ. The measure, if signed into law, will also give Congress veto powers to block any easing of Russian sanctions by the president. And while it remained unclear if President Donald Trump would sign the bill if it reaches his desk, which is now likely, the loudest complaint about the bill to date has emerged noe from the Oval Office, but from Brussels, after the EU once again urged (and warned, and threatened) US lawmakers to coordinate their anti-Russia actions with European partners, or else.

Brussels to act ‘within days’ if US sanctions hurt EU trade with Russia – internal memo

An internal memo seen by the Financial Times and Politico has emerged amid mounting opposition to a US bill seeking to hit Russia with a new round of sanctions. The bill, if signed into law, will also give US lawmakers the power to veto any attempt by the president to lift the sanctions.

‘Don’t THREATEN us’ EU in chaos as Italy launches FURIOUS attack on Austria over migration

ITALY today launched an extraordinary attack on its neighbour Austria as the political strain of the migration crisis once more revealed deep splits within the EU.

In a sign of worsening relations between Rome and other member states prime minister Paolo Gentiloni lashed out against “threats and lessons” and begged the rest of Europe to intervene.

The Italian leader accused Vienna of abandoning its responsibilities as an EU country after Austrian leaders said they would deploy the army to their Alpine border to stop migrants crossing it.

In recent days Italy has become increasingly desperate as it struggles to cope with a huge influx of up to 10,000 migrants arriving at its ports every single day.

CATALONIA’S INDEPENDENCE STRIFE TURNS INTO FINANCIAL SHOWDOWN

Madrid’s standoff with Spain’s north eastern province of Catalonia, which plans to hold a forbidden referendum on national independence on October 1, grows more and more complex by the day. Just in the last week alone the following developments have taken place:

Spain’s Civil Guard has raided Catalonia’s parliament and government HQ as part of its investigation into political corruption in the region. As new research has shown, this investigation forms part of a broader police operation that has served as a means for Spain’s governing People’s Party to spy on political rivals.

Catalonia’s government has replaced the region’s chief of police with a die-hard separatist. It has also purged the cabinet of any members perceived as not fully committed to the separatist cause.

Deloitte published its annual barometer of Spanish businesses according to which 74% of business leaders believe that the independence of Catalonia would do serious harm to Spain’s economy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This issue is as much financial as it is political. Catalonia's debt is off the charts, and if it votes to split from Spain, Brussels will do whatever it thinks is necessary to get that debt repaid, at usurious interest.

Sweden leaked every car owners' details last year, then tried to hush it up

Falkvinge writes Sweden's government has been trying to handle the huge leak of sensitive data away from the public eye.

The story goes back to 2015, when Sweden's transport agency awarded IBM a contract to manage its databases and networks.

...

The leak seems to have happened over email after the transport agency e-mailed the entire database in clear text messages to marketers that subscribe to it – and when the error was discovered, the agency merely sent a new list and told subscribers to delete the old list themselves.

Sweden Accidentally Leaks Personal Details of Nearly All Citizens

Who exposed the sensitive data? The Swedish government itself.

Swedish media is reporting of a massive data breach in the Swedish Transport Agency (Transportstyrelsen) after the agency mishandled an outsourcing deal with IBM, which led to the leak of the private data about every vehicle in the country, including those used by both police and military.

The data breach exposed the names, photos and home addresses of millions of Swedish citizen, including fighter pilots of Swedish air force, members of the military's most secretive units, police suspects, people under the witness relocation programme, the weight capacity of all roads and bridges, and much more.

Geopolitical Turbulence in the Caucasus

To put it very simply, after Syria the Caucasus – barely 800 miles to the northeast – is literally Russia’s second line of defense, its “soft underbelly,” to use a worn but apposite phrase. Quite understandably, Russia is in Syria, among other reasons, precisely to make sure that it would not have to fall back to the aforementioned defense line. Its geopolitical opponents, however, are doing their utmost to see to it that it does. Hence the intense turbulence and maneuvering between Baku and Tbilisi, and beyond.

The accompanying buildup of NATO'S troops right on Russia's doorstep is no accident, either.

The public can be worked up emotionally by sham ideals. A sort of collective hysteria spreads and rises until finally it gets the better of sober people and reputable newspapers".

EU's Article 7 ULTIMATUM to Poland: We'll strip you of your voting rights if reforms go on

THE European Union is threatening to punish Poland and suspend its rights in a row over major reforms clashing with EU rules.

Brussels has given Warsaw a week to halt judicial reforms it said would put courts under direct government control, or face punishment for undermining democracy.

Hitting back Poland said it could take its own action at Europe's highest court if any EU case was initiated.

Last week, the Polish parliament adopted a new law which would allow them to choose the successors of 15 judges of the National Council of the Judiciary (KRS).

As a result the European Commission may decide there has been a major break from the EU’s fundamental values and could block Poland’s voting rights.

Netanyahu attack on EU policy towards Israel caught on microphone

Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has launched a withering attack on the European Union at a closed-door meeting of eastern European leaders in Budapest, saying the political grouping would wither and die if it did not change its policy towards Israel.

The remarks, caught on an open microphone, underlined Netanyahu’s often barely disguised contempt for the European political union, which has criticised Israel – and his government in particular – over issues including Jewish settlement building in the occupied Palestinian territories and the peace process.

NATO can ‘deter’ Russia, Romanian president says amid drills in E. Europe (VIDEO)

NATO forces are able to deter Russia and they already do so by holding exercises in eastern Europe, Romanian President Klaus Iohannis said as he visited the site of drills staged by NATO and several partner countries in Romania.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Romanian President Klaus Iohannis, a word, please: Russia doesn't want war.

It wants trade.

And it has some incredible goods to trade, like non-GMO agriculture, oil, and natural gas.

This constant Russia-bashing on the part of you, and your colleagues in Eastern Europe, is a completely unfair, and disingenuous branding of this country, perhaps as a prelude to a NATO war against it, and you have to know that.

The following map tells the story better than I could ever articulate it:

The map that shows how many NATO troops are deployed along Russia’s border

So President Iohannis, if NATO is not encircling Russia with troops as a prelude to a war against it, to destroy the country and its financial system, why please, are they there?!?

European Parliament Votes to Allow EU Aid to Be Spent on Third World Militaries

The proposal to change the so-called Instrument contributing to Stability and Peace (IcSP) — an EU fund worth US$2.62 billion (€2.3 billion), charged with disbursing money for peace-building activities in conflict-ridden developing countries is avowedly part of the European Commission's "capacity building in support of security and development" initiative.

The proposals have been engulfed in legal controversy since their launch by the Commission in 2016. While the European Commission claims the move would strengthen the EU's ability to shore up state institutions in countries whose development has been hindered by violence, critics claim it's a covert attempt to divert financial resources away from traditional aid projects, to the EU's increasingly embattled military operations in sub-Saharan Africa.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I absolutely side with the critics on this one.

Africa is one of the most resource-rich, relatively unexploited continents on the face of this earth; therefore, Europe, just as does the US and China, wants to expropriate those resources, to which it has absolutely no moral right; make sure the regimes in these countries are Western-centric; and that these resources are only sold to specific countries, and only sold in Euros.

These European military operations in sub-Saharan Africa get little or no press here in the States; they should.

BANK OF ITALY WARNS AGAINST CREATING YOUR OWN CURRENCY

Because the top cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin and Ethereum are open source, any one can create their own cryptocurrencies. While the proliferation of cryptocurrencies has central banks concerened, another more insidious and perhaps greater threat to central banks’ monopoly on money creation is the issuance of scriptural euros by citizens.

What are Scriptural Euros?

Scriptural Euros are Euros issued by citizens under a “theory of the autonomous creation of scriptural currency” based on the idea of collective property of money that affirms the right of every citizen to autonomously create “scriptural” money (Euros) via their own accounting records. The thoery of autonomous creation of scriptural currency holds that just as banks can conjure debt based money out of thin air, so can citizens. Money thus created by citizens can then be used to extinguish their own debts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Citizens are starting to think that if the banks can create money out of thin air, why can't the citizens?

Eurozone on the ROCKS: Inflation PLUNGES further as ECB scrambles to save EU economy

EUROZONE inflation remains below target in an embarrassing development for the European Central Bank (ECB) which has pulled out all of the stops to kick the EU's economy into action.

Despite desperate efforts by policymakers to raise inflation, it came in at just 1.3 per cent in June, the European Commission this week confirmed.

The ECB has slashed interest rates below zero and injects billions into the eurozone every month in the hope of lifting the economy.

Yet inflation continues to disappoint, with stagnant prices taken as a sign of weak consumer demand.

The Biggest Issue of our Time

Great civilizations don't die from murder, they die from suicide.

Longtime Steyn readers will be familiar with the demographic thesis of his 2006 international bestseller America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It. Almost the entire developed world is mired in deathbed demography from which no functioning society has ever recovered.

Mark's book was a big success a decade ago. But it is a melancholy fact that most people in the western world remain entirely unaware of this remorseless arithmetic or its likely consequences. So this brand new SteynPost is a kind of primer on demographic trends, and where they lead.

Italy Threatens EU With "Nuclear Option": Give 200,000 Migrants EU Visas, Sending Them North

The former Ukip leader blast: “I think it’s a pretty loathsome performance, frankly.

“He is showing people why he is now one of the most disliked living figures in British politics – he wants to reverse the result of a democratic referendum.

“He’s making it clear that anything must be done to stop us leaving the EU, he suggests public opinion has shifted when actually there are more people in favour of Brexit now than there were at the time of the referendum.”

If we don’t cut all ties with the EU... 1.2m migrants will head to the Britain

BRITAIN will need to build a city the size of Birmingham every two years unless it cuts all ties with Europe.

If the UK remains subject to freemovement rules, net migration from the EU will continue at around 125,000 a year over the next decade, adding to those from other countries, a report said last night. A soft Brexit will leave the door open to 1.25 million EU immigrants over this time.

The disturbing scenario comes as the first full week of Brexit negotiations are poised to start today in Brussels with urgent new powers to control migration the priority.

Taking into account nonEU migrants, pressure group Migration Watch UK claims failure to control EU movement will result in the population rocketing by around 500,000 each year.

This is close to figures from the Office for National Statistics under a high migration scenario.

Ukraine In NATO? America Should Reject A Bad Idea That Only Grows Worse With Age

The government of Ukraine reaffirmed its desire to join NATO. The alliance said the door is open for Kiev. It’s an idea that only grows worse with age.

It’s easy to understand why a majority of Ukrainians want NATO’s protection. They really want America’s protection. And who wouldn’t like the global superpower to take over one’s defense? Their country established its first contact with the alliance in 1991 when Ukraine joined the North Atlantic Cooperation Council. Since then Kiev has received aid and support while contributing troops to some allied operations.

And given the fact that the U.S. would do most of the heavy lifting in any conflict with nuclear-armed Russia, the critical question for Washington is whether adding a new member would increase Americans’ security.
