Emails show Hillary Clinton’s cool response to Tony Blair’s request for support

Emails show Hillary Clinton’s cool response to Tony Blair’s request for support

When you are America’s most senior diplomat you know exactly how to handle requests for favours from friends: be polite and show willing but don’t commit and certainly make sure you are never on the losing side.

So when Hillary Clinton, then US secretary of state, was asked to make a statement in support of Tony Blair’s ill-fated candidacy for European Council president she said she was in a bit of a hurry but would “if I get the chance”.

Jonathan Powell, Mr Blair’s former chief of staff, sent a Clinton confidante a note in October 2009 asking if Mrs Clinton would be willing to praise Mr Blair during a trip to Europe, in order to signal that the newly-installed Obama administration thought him a strong candidate.

“I just got this as I am heading for the Belfast airport,” she wrote. “Not sure I could have arranged it anyway. But, if I get a chance, I will certainly say something positive.”

Welcome to The New World Order – Creation of European Army backed by 36% of Brits

Welcome to The New World Order – Creation of European Army backed by 36% of Brits

Millions of British people would support a standing European Union (EU) military force, according to a study by polling firm YouGov.

Carried out on behalf of Cambridge University, the findings indicate 36 percent of people in the UK would support a pan-European military force, a conclusion which jars with widely-held perceptions of British Euroskepticism.

A further 36 percent did not know how they felt or had no strong leanings, while 29 percent said they were strongly opposed.

Unsurprisingly, UK Independence Party (UKIP) voters were the most opposed, with 51 percent against the idea, while 47 percent of Labour voters and 46 percent of Liberal Democrat voters backed the idea.

Conservative voters were 31 percent for and 36 percent against the idea of a combined European force.

A solid 60 percent majority felt the UK should work closely with European nations on broader issues of foreign policy in the wake of the Paris attacks.

EU border force plan revived as refugee crisis spirals

EU border force plan revived as refugee crisis spirals

Europe’s refugee crisis has revived plans for a controversial pan-EU border and coast guard force to patrol countries like Greece and Italy which are struggling to cope with the wave of migrants.

But analysts suspect frontline nations will resist ceding sovereign border control rights to other European Union states and that Brussels will have to settle for a far less ambitious proposal.

“This is a little bit like calling for a European army.

Remember this?

Our goal is an EU army says Germany’s defence chief:

An EU army is Germany’s ‘long term goal’ according to one of its ministers.

Ursula von der Leyen called for defence cooperation to be strengthened so that the continent can respond quickly to international crises.

But her comments will raise fears the German government will back the call by European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker for an EU-wide fighting force.

In March, Mr Juncker said the EU needed its own army to address the claim that it is not ‘taken entirely seriously’ on the international stage.

Just ONE IN FIVE migrants claiming asylum are from Syria, EU figures show

Just ONE IN FIVE migrants claiming asylum are from Syria, EU figures show

Campaigners and left-wing MPs have previously blasted the government for doing little to help refugees who they insisted were mainly coming from Syria.

But out of the astonishing 213,000 arrivals the EU logged between April and June, only 44,000 were fleeing the war-torn state.

Sceptics criticised campaigners over the revelation, accusing them of selling a lie about the number of people trying to escape the conflict.

Conservative MP David Davies claimed the new figures published by Eurostat reveal “the lie peddled in some quarters that vast numbers of those reaching Europe are from Syria”.

Mr Davies said: “Most people who are escaping the war will go to camps in Lebanon or Jordan.

“Many of those who have opted to risk their lives to come to Europe have done so for economic reasons.”

According to the figures migration for the three months was double the level of the same period last year.

They show that the number of Afghans trying to claim asylum has rocketed from 6,300 to 27,000 – while another 17,700 claims were made by Albanians, whose country is not at war.

Climate change refugees?

Climate change refugees?

Yep – hard on the heels of the EU’s Juncker laying out his plan for dealing with the refugee ‘crisis’

we have Juncker talking of the next ‘wave’

“We are tackling the root causes of the next migration wave, in the next coming decades if we are addressed in a proper way the climate change problem, because tomorrow morning we’ll have climate refugees and we have to know that. And we should surprised or astonished if the first climate refugees are coming to Europe. We have to act now.”

IF you consider that the puppet masters speak in code – and if you consider that ‘climate change’ has ZERO to do with the weather – but rather has EVERYTHING to do with the MOOD of the PEOPLE………… then you might interpret much of what these politicians pontificate in a rather different way?

They are FRIGHTENED of the growing awareness of the people – cos this threatens their political power base.

Creation of Euro-Zone Government

Well – hard on the heels of some are more equal than others  Hollande continues to play the cards his ‘partner‘ has instructed.

French President Francois Hollande said that the 19 countries using the euro need their own government complete with a budget and parliament to cooperate better and overcome the Greek crisis.

“Circumstances are leading us to accelerate,”

Countries in favor of more integration should move ahead, forming an “avant-garde,

Hollande dans le JDD : “Pour un gouvernement de la zone euro avec un budget et un Parlement”

And that is probably much of what is behind the treatment of Greece.

Hollande calls for stronger eurozone led by “vanguard” nations

He stressed the need for “two cornerstones” of a tighter, more secure, eurozone, “an European economic government” and “a specific budget,” to deal with similar crises in future

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls added that this vanguard should include the six founding EU countries: France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg.

Euro-MPs agree air passenger data collection

Whilst we sit back and watch Greece burn (it ain’t Nero filldling this time)

the EU marches on it’s way to total control

BRUSSELS) – European lawmakers approved Wednesday plans to collect EU passenger data, a measure sought by the United States after years of controversy over how to protect personal information while fighting terrorism and serious crime.

Conservative British MEP Timothy Kirkhope who steered the text through the commission said that if finalised the deal would ensure the 28-member European Union (EU) had just one system, not a network of national arrangements.

The 9/11 terror attacks put passenger data high on the agenda, with Washington pushing the EU to adopt a PNR system to tighten up security.

Hypocrisy of the first order’: Outrage as Europe fines UK £642m for poor accounting

Hypocrisy of the first order’: Outrage as Europe fines UK £642m for poor accounting

The draconian financial punishment was imposed because Brussels bean counters claimed the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs had failed to properly administer EU farm payments.

The huge fine was last night (Mon) branded “hypocrisy of the first order” as the European Court of Auditors has failed to give the EU a clean bill of health for the past 19 years.

Details of the fines were uncovered by Whitehall’s spending watchdog, the National Audit Office (NAO).

“Disallowance penalties” imposed by the European Commission on payments made to farmers in England had cost £642 million since 2005, the NAO said.

Overall, it said that the UK had the sixth worst record of the 28 EU member states with 2.70 of every 100 received under the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) being returned to Brussels in the form of fines.

Only Greece, Romania, Portugal, Bulgaria and Cyprus had sustained higher rates of penalties.

Defra is considering investing up to £45 million, which it believes could save future penalties for England of between £215 million and £370 million in the period to 2021.

However the NAO warned that a new system of CAP payments introduced earlier year was more complex than its predecessor and was expected to result in a higher rate of fines – at least in the early years.
