The German sado-monetarists seek to destroy the EU!

... unless they are indeed sociopaths in constant denial


It may sound unbelievable, but it's true. A few days after Brexit, the German sado-monetarists with the Minister of Finance, Wolfgang Schäuble, in the front line, demand stricter fiscal discipline by the EU members!

As Reuters reported:

Stricter budget rules for European Union states and a downsized European Commission are part of a post-Brexit reform plan for the bloc drafted by aides for German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble, the Handelsblatt daily reported on Wednesday.

The plan for Schaeuble, whose austere approach to public finances has resulted in a balanced budget in Germany for the first time since 1969, will almost certainly face resistance from France and Italy, who prefer borrowing to stimulate their economies.

"Member states should not be discharged from their responsibilities to ensure stable budgets and growth-friendly structural reforms," Handelsblatt quoted the German experts as saying in the reform proposals.

Furthermore, according to the same report: “... one suggestion in the plan was to downsize the European Commission, which has faced criticism for its extensive bureaucracy. It gave no further details.

The lunacy of the technocrats is beyond any doubt. There is no other explanation: either they are indeed dangerous sociopaths in constant denial, completely blind and unable to see the oncoming disaster, or, they want really to end the current EU/eurozone Frankenstein project.

How else someone could explain that inside this absolute disaster by the austerity and the fiscal discipline policies in most of the EU area and especially in the eurozone, the German "pundits" demand more sado-monetarism? How else could explain that they act as if there was no Brexit at all, pretending at the same time that they are not seeing others who want to escape from the euro-monster?

Yet, this last suggestion about "downsize the European Commission", probably exposes their panic and attempt to keep the German hegemony through further restriction of democratic procedures. A smaller German-occupied Commission would form a more anti-democratic EU, which the lobbyists and especially the German economic oligarchy will control totally. This shows that the German oligarchy will try to balance the loss of the UK by taking more power inside the EU feudal area.

However, this could become the definite gravestone for the current monstrous neoliberal EU. Nationalists and Far-Right eurosceptics are rising everywhere, seeing already a German-dominated Europe. Therefore we end up to the only possible explanation ... again: the German sado-monetarists seek to destroy the EU!

Indeed, Schaeuble continues to provoke, playing with fire. From WSJ : “... Mr. Schäuble clarified his comments to the reporters that were present. 'The Portuguese don’t want it [a new bailout program]. They also don’t need it, if they stick to the rules,' he said. [...] In Portugal, where Mr. Schäuble’s comments were subsequently broadcast, caused outrage among journalists and commentators. 'It isn’t enough that he corrects or clarifies the words that were said; he should apologize to the country,' daily newspaper Público demanded.

And all these, despite the fact that the IMF, this time, openly warned about the ready-to-explode German banking mega-bomb. From ZeroHedge : “... three years later, when not only did Deutsche Bank just flunk the Fed's stress test for the second year in a row, but moments ago in a far more damning analysis, none other than the IMF disclosed that Deutsche Bank poses the greatest systemic risk to the global financial system, explicitly stating that the German bank 'appears to be the most important net contributor to systemic risks.'

There you go: this is the recipe of perfect disaster, yet the German sociopaths together with Brussels bureaufascists insist on strict fiscal discipline from the member-states, even from totally devastated economies (because of their policies), like the Greek one! So, really, how would you explain it?

Διπλό στρατηγικό χτύπημα Τσίπρα κατά του καταρρέοντος Μητσοτακικού καθεστώτος

US imperialists sacrifice their European branch on the altar of their proxy war against Russia in Ukraine

globinfo freexchange   To arm the nazis and destroy Ukraine by dragging the country into a war with Russia wasn't enough for the ruthless US imperialists. They had to throw into the arena the entire Europe.    Yet, apart from a few - highly uncertain - successes so far, (coming from one of its most dirty proxy wars), the declining US empire discovers that it has to pay a huge price, just only to challenge the rise of its global rivals. It appears that, so far, the US imperialists are close to fulfill two of their key goals.    First, to lure Sweden and Finland into the NATO trap. A move that could be proved disastrous for two of the most prosperous and advanced European countries, whose achievements materialized (to a high degree) due to decades of neutrality.   Second, to force Russia into a long attrition war with Ukraine. Since already 2014, we wrote that the US imperialists wanted to challenge Putin in order to drag Russia in an endless attrition war in East Ukraine and this

Do it like the Fed: ECB raises key interest rates, creates money circulation loop for big banks and corporations

globinfo freexchange   Inside the storm of inflation, the European Central Bank suddenly thought that it would be a good idea to raise key interest rates for the first time in 11 years.  According to Deutsche Welle (DW) [emphasis added]:                       The ECB raised its negative benchmark deposit rate by 50 basis points from minus 0.5% to 0%, lifting the bank's deposit facility out of negative territory for the first time in eight years. The announcement came as a surprise as the bank had initially hinted that it would hike the rate by 25 basis points only .    It's remarkable that DW's analyst, Kristie Pladson, stated that " ... this is a historic decision they've taken now - first hike in eleven years, so, on that level, it's a little bit unclear exactly what effect it's going to have ... "   However, one thing ECB's move will surely affect, is money access for most of the Europeans. As Pladson says:                      ... what we do

Francis Fukuyama is right: Socialism is the only alternative to liberalism

In Liberalism and Its Discontents, Francis Fukuyama diagnoses the political and psychological malaise caused by capitalism. His analysis makes one thing clear: liberalism is incapable of addressing the social, economic, and ecological crises it faces.    by Samuel McIlhagga  Part 1 In a CNN interview, after another round of the US government’s sanctions on Russia, the following exchange took place between the show’s host and President Joe Biden’s economic adviser Brian Deese:               CNN: What do you say to those families that say, “Listen, we can’t afford to pay $4.85 a gallon for months if not years, this is just not sustainable”?         Deese: Well, what you heard from the president today was a clear articulation of the stakes. . . . This is about the future of the liberal world order and we have to stand firm. The events of the past two years, from the start of the global pandemic to the war in Ukraine, and now the global food shortage, are clear signs that liberalism, as a

Mexico’s President gives Joe Biden a big history lesson

Latin American nations are putting themselves on the front line for the sovereignty of certain countries, and are backing progressive processes in others   by Rodrigo Guillot   Part 1 Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) visited the United States on July 12 and offered five proposals to US President Joe Biden. These proposals are based on AMLO’s in-depth knowledge of Mexican history and his reading of the economic crisis in the United States, which seems to be losing its edge as a global leader. The first of the proposals that AMLO made was about Mexico allowing US consumers to fill gasoline tanks on the Mexican side of the border. By doing so, it is permitting the United States to ease its inflation crisis. AMLO offered to double the supply of gasoline in Mexico in his show of support to further ease the crisis. Second, AMLO said that Mexico would provide for more than 600 miles of gas pipelines along the US–Mexico border to help transport natural gas from Texas to Ar

The British establishment chose Boris Johnson as its weapon to defeat the Left

Boris Johnson’s disastrous time in office has spluttered to an ignominious conclusion. Many of those now deploring his record sided with Johnson when it really mattered because they wanted to block a left-wing government that could transform British society.   by Daniel Finn   Part 3 - Change UK Can Believe In Austin and Woodcock weren’t the only Labour MPs to break ranks under Corbyn. In February 2019, seven MPs resigned from the party and set up the Independent Group, which later became Change UK. There was a lot of talk in the commentariat about their potential to break the mold of British politics. Yet in the 2019 election, Change UK — now calling itself the Independent Group for Change — took just over ten thousand votes, marginally outpolling the Monster Raving Loony Party. All of the Labour defectors lost their seats — including those who defected a second time to the Liberal Democrats — apart from the ones who decided not to stand. They’ve since gone on to higher things: Chris

US debt held by the Federal Reserve surpassed 25% of GDP in 2021!

globinfo freexchange According to the economic database of St. Louis Federal Reserve (FRED), the US debt held by the Federal Reserve surpassed the unthinkable percentage of 25% of GDP (25.48%) for the first time in the third quarter of 2021! We observe that from the beginning of the related recorded data in 1970, the US debt held by the Federal Reserve remains almost flat and at much lower levels (~ 3.5%-5.5% of GDP). And this is the case even during the recession right after the 1973 oil crisis depicted by the shaded area in the graph.   Then, during the big financial meltdown of 2007-2008, we observe a shallow dive of the debt. After that period, we can see clearly that the US debt held by the Federal Reverse breaks one record after another, reaching unprecedented levels.   For the first time, the debt surpasses 10% of GDP in the second quarter of 2011 (10.41%), and in the first quarter of 2014 surpasses 15% of GDP (15.25%). Then, we have a dive in the third quarter of 2019 at 11.33

Ukraine: Ukrainian fighting tactics endanger civilians

Military bases set up in residential areas including schools and hospitals   Attacks launched from populated civilian areas       Such violations in no way justify Russia’s indiscriminate attacks, which have killed and injured countless civilians    Part 1   Ukrainian forces have put civilians in harm’s way by establishing bases and operating weapons systems in populated residential areas, including in schools and hospitals, as they repelled the Russian invasion that began in February, Amnesty International said today. Such tactics violate international humanitarian law and endanger civilians, as they turn civilian objects into military targets. The ensuing Russian strikes in populated areas have killed civilians and destroyed civilian infrastructure. “ We have documented a pattern of Ukrainian forces putting civilians at risk and violating the laws of war when they operate in populated areas, ” said Agnès Callamard, Amnesty International’s Secretary General. “ Being in a defensive pos
