You Have to Love Nigel Farage, Truth Teller, Independent, Freedom Defender



Nigel Farage To European Parliament: "The Euro Game Is Up... Just Who The Hell Do You Think You Are? You Are Very Dangerous People"
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 11/25/2010 13:07 -0500 Zerohedge



Famous euroskeptic Nigel Farage (as seen previously here), in just under 4 brief minutes tells more truth about the entire European experiment than all European bankers, commissioners, and politicians have done in the past decade. As we have already said pretty much all of this before, we present it without commentary:

"Good morning Mr. van Rompuy, you've been in office for one year, and in that time the whole edifice is beginning to crumble, there's chaos, the money's running out, I should thank you - you should perhaps be the pinup boy of the euroskeptic movement. But just look around this chamber this morning, look at these faces, look at the fear, look at the anger. Poor Barroso here looks like he's seen a ghost. They're beginning to understand that the game is up. And yet in their desperation to preserve their dream, they want to remove any remaining traces of democracy from the system. And it's pretty clear that none of you have learned anything. When you yourself Mr. van Rompuy say that the euro has brought us stability, I supposed I could applaud you for having a sense of humor, but isn't this really just the bunker [or banker?] mentality. Your fanaticism is out in the open. You talk about the fact that it was a lie to believe that the nation state could exist in the 21st century globalized world. Well, that may be true in the case of Belgium who haven't had a government for 6 months, but for the rest of us, right across every member state in this union, increasingly people are saying, "We don't want that flag, we don't want the anthem, we don't want this political class, we want the whole thing consigned to the dustbin of history." We had the Greek tragedy earlier on this year, and now we have the situation in Ireland. I know that the stupidity and greed of Irish politicians has a lot to do with this: they should never, ever have joined the euro. They suffered with low interest rates, a false boom and a massive bust. But look at your response to them: what they are being told as their government is collapsing is that it would be inappropriate for them to have a general election. In fact commissioner Rehn here said they had to agree to a budget first before they are allowed to have a general election. Just who the hell do you think you people are. You are very, very dangerous people indeed: your obsession with creating this European state means that you are happy to destroy democracy, you appear to be happy with millions and millions of people to be unemployed and to be poor. Untold millions will suffer so that your euro dream can continue. Well it won't work, cause its Portugal next with their debt levels of 325% of GDP they are the next ones on the list, and after that I suspect it will be Spain, and the bailout for Spain will be 7 times the size of Ireland, and at that moment all the bailout money will is gone - there won't be any more. But it's even more serious than economics, because if you rob people of their identity, if you rob them of their democracy, then all they are left with is nationalism and violence. I can only hope and pray that the euro project is destroyed by the markets before that really happens."

  1. Give them hell Nigel.

    We could use the lad here, but we probably don't deserve him because mostly, most of us, as the Europeans do not care enough about our own freedoms to do much about it.

    The Europeans let their politicians lead them down the path to destruction of national freedom and are now paying the price.

    Those who objected to the Euro were scorned and ridiculed by politicians and the liberal media for being "nationalists."

    We allow the American Left to do the same although their favorite charge is "racist."

    Consider The Dream Act, Harry Reid's favorite:

    The Dream Act is the latest attack on American sovereignty. The Dream Act is another assault on immigration laws, another reward to lawbreakers, another erosion of the privilege of citizenship, all under the guise of inclusive righteousness.

    Like the Europeans with the Euro, not enough Americans care to defend their freedom and The Dream Act will shift power away from the Americans that actually own that dream.

    It is a dream to the Democrats and the growing American Left.

  2. "You may think and you sometimes read that Europe is in chaos, disintegrating, the euro about to disappear. This is wrong," Klaus Regling, the head of the EU's temporary rescue mechanism, said in a speech in Singapore.
    ...
    EU plans to make private bond holders shoulder some of the pain from any sovereign debt restructuring after mid-2013 have led investors to reassess the risk of putting their money in the government bonds of high-deficit countries.

    European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet warned markets on Tuesday against underestimating the determination of policymakers to stabilize the euro zone, but their options for stopping the rot appear limited.

    The ECB could decide to increase the scale of its bond purchase program at its Thursday meeting, but resistance to such a step is high on the bank's Governing Council, with some members instead advocating an end to extraordinary crisis measures.

    Meanwhile, Germany has resisted pressure from countries such as France to turn the euro zone into a "fiscal union" in which member states sacrifice sovereignty over economic policy for the good of the group.

    Chancellor Angela Merkel is also skeptical about putting up more funds for bailouts, concerned that German taxpayers would end up shouldering the lion's share of a string of rescues of countries which Berlin believes have made themselves vulnerable through economic mismanagement.

  3. Peter Bofinger, a member of the "wisemen" panel of economic advisers to the German government, said the risks to the euro were "enormously large" and Germany needed to decide whether it wanted to let the currency fail or do more to save it.

    "For me it is decisive that we ask ourselves in Germany whether we want to continue to have the euro or not," Bofinger told Germany's NTV television late on Tuesday. "We must have this discussion because we must ask ourselves whether we find it worth it to stand up for it."

  9. Hanukkah is not Christmas

    Starting at sundown tonight, Jewish families will be celebrating Hanukkah with a variety of traditions – gifts, greeting cards, special food, candle lighting and an ancient story of a divine miracle.

    Just don’t call it the “Jewish Christmas.”

    While the age-old “Festival of Lights” has emerged as a popular observance in the shadow of an ever-more commercialized Christmas, observant believers like Deborah Milbauer of Milton say there’s not as much of a connection as many non-Jews think.

    “It’s not a little Christmas,” the public health consultant, parent and Temple Shalom member said.

    Like other Jewish youngsters, Milbauer’s two daughters will help light the family menorah over the next eight days. They’ll get small gifts, and plenty of gelt – the traditional gold-covered chocolate coins of the holiday. But Milbauer will also be reading them the story of the 2nd-century B.C. Maccabean revolt against their Greek rulers, just as she grew up hearing.

    Temple Shalom’s Rabbi Alfred Benjamin says that story – with the tale of the oil lamp that stayed lit for eight days – makes Hanukkah different from the typical American shopping-mall Christmas.

  14. Printing euros may be EU's last hope to halt crisis
    CARL MORTISHED

    ...

    "All that is happening is that euro zone member states are being judged, not as satraps of some Austro-Hungarian Empire but as free-standing nations with separate economies and distinct problems. They myth of an EU guarantee of member state solvency is shattered and on Wednesday the European Central Bank was back in the market buying Irish and Portuguese debt in a desperate effort to regain the initiative. The appalling truth is dawning in the markets that the EU has nothing left to protect the peripheral euro zone states but massive purchases of government and euro zone bank debt by the ECB; quantitative easing on a colossal scale - the printing of euros.

    The ECB will have to do this if it is to avoid the restructuring of Irish, Portuguese and Greek sovereign debt and it will have to do this to prevent the flight of capital from the euro zone periphery. We are now in a situation where weaker European companies are at risk of refinancing problems due to being shut out of debt markets while the strong, such as utilities and energy companies, may fear that their cash flows will be targeted by desperate governments. A bailout of a major European sovereign, such as Spain, is politically impossible and even little Portugal may be a step too far for the German electorate. The fiscal attack on corporates may spread throughout the Club Med states, ruining their economic prospects as international investors strike these countries from any list of potential investment destinations.

    In order to avoid these outcomes, it looks like the ECB will now have to print money like an alcoholic who has leapt off the temperance wagon to indulge in a final binge. Whether Germany is prepared to stomach such an outcome is doubtful. Soon the political sparks will fly."

    And you asked me what I want this year
    and I try to make this kind and clear
    just a chance that maybe we'll find better days
    'cause I don't need boxes wrapped in strings
    and designer love and empty things
    just a chance that maybe we'll find better days

    So take these words and sing out loud
    'cause everyone is forgiven now
    'cause tonight's the night the world begins again

    I need some place simple where we could live
    and something only you can give
    and that's faith and trust and peace while we're alive
    and the one poor child who saved this world
    and there's ten million more who probably could
    if we all just stopped and said a prayer for them

    So take these words and sing out loud
    'cause everyone is forgiven now
    'cause tonight's the night the world begins again

    I wish everyone was loved tonight
    and somehow stop this endless fight
    just a chance that maybe we'll find better days

    So take these words and sing out loud
    'cause everyone is forgiven now
    'cause tonight's the night the world begins again

    My comment about Hanukkah was about the irony of Jews trying to fit in with the holiday season of what for them is a heretical sect. It was wrongly interpreted as an attack on WiO's kid (if he even has one, I don't care either way). I don't like the feeling of walking on eggshells around here, and I don't like the double standards. So do us both a favor, Deuce, and remove my "attack" post so I have an objective case and I can make a clean break from this place.

    Failing that, I will remain posting at my current low level, but I curtail my replies such that they exclude you, bob, and Allen, lest things grow out of hand.

    Re: Islam

    While 100% of Muslims do not support terrorism, 95% of all terrorism is committed by Muslims. That is why profiling works in intelligence gathering and would work equally well in air travel screening were it not for PC.

    For example, you would (I hope) think it insanity for the US government to divide its intelligence assets equally among the world's countries. In short, it would be unthinkable that Iceland would get the same dollar amount of surveillance as Pakistan.

    When Christians, Hindus, Buddhists and/or Jews (of all varieties) are as infamous, I will take your retort seriously.

    The radicals of the Islamic world, would have won if there were free and fair elections in Egypt.

    However in the world's largest arab nation the term "free and fair" means it's ok to simply murder your political rival.

    yep.. and the REST of the story..

    Goldstein was attacked and killed by the worshippers.

    Palestinian riots immediately followed the shooting, leading in the following week to the deaths of 25 Palestinians and five Israelis.

    Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin telephoned PLO leader Yasser Arafat, and described the attack as a "loathsome, criminal act of murder". The Israeli government condemned the massacre, and responded by arresting followers of Meir Kahane, forbidding certain settlers from entering Arab towns, and demanding that those settlers turn in their army-issued rifles Goldstein was immediately "denounced with shocked horror even by the mainstream Orthodox", and most in Israel classified Goldstein as insane.

    - Maybe you could enlighten us with ballpark estimates of those increases over various periods of time, ex-Farmer Bob.

  64. Quirk: I agree the official indignation appears to be somewhat spotty here. No sense getting upset about it though.

    I'm upset that my post about the irony of the Jews celebrating Hannukkah (which even WiO says is about celebrating "the VICTORY over the PAGANS with our RECAPTURE and LIBERATION of our Temple in Jerusalem"), a holiday which "gained increased importance with many Jewish families in the latter half of the twentieth century, including large numbers of secular Jews, who wanted a Jewish alternative to the Christmas celebrations that often overlap with Hanukkah", was interpreted as an attack on WiO's offspring by Deuce, Bob, and Allen, when not even WiO himself interpreted it that way.

    No apologies, no nothing.

    But the offer still stands. Remove any one of my posts and I shan't return.

  65. The Obama administration will reverse its policy on offshore drilling announced last March and bar further new drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, as well as the Atlantic and Pacific Coasts. The new ban will last seven years, and that will deliver a body blow to American exploration and energy independence:

  66. I really don't know, Doug. But my farmer friends tell me there still isn't much profit in it.

    I just wish I'd had better sense to take one of those Quirk seminars where you are taught how to put your best face to the world.

    And be a Detroit salesman.

    I might have made more money.

    But my wife would have left, she not knowing who I really was.

  68. WiO: Jerusalem still is the Capital of the Jewish People. Has been for 3000 years.

    Except for the 1,750 years from 132, when Hadrian renamed it Aelia Capitolina and banned Jews from entering it, until 1948 when West Jerusalem became the capital of the modern state of Israel. So you're about 1/3 right, WiO.

    LUKE 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

  69. Wikileaks being hosted on Amazon’s servers...

    As for the report linked this morning in Headlines about Wikileaks being hosted on Amazon’s servers, rest easy: You won’t have to do your Christmas shopping elsewhere after all. They were summarily booted this afternoon after congressional staff politely inquired with Amazon as to how this arrangement came to be.

    According to the AP, server space can be rented from the company on a “self-serve basis,” suggesting that Amazon might not have realized until today just who their new client was. I find that hard to believe given the amount of traffic that must have been flooding in, but then I also find it hard to believe that Amazon wouldn’t have dumped them instantly had they known lest a U.S. boycott cripple their Christmas sales season. (Media reports about the Amazon/Wikileaks were available as early as Monday afternoon.)

    In any case, Wikileaks has responded with a scathing indictment of Amazon’s lack of respect for the First Amendment, which, according to Wikileaks, apparently somehow constitutionally requires private businesses to host organizations that might be criminally liable under the Espionage Act.

    Good work, Julian.

    In related news, Assange’s mommy would very much like it if you would leave her son alone.

  71. Ms T: when not even WiO himself interpreted it that way.


    Actually I thought you were being an absolute bitch.

    But I figured there was enough other things to go after you about.

    I find the concept that "secular" jews opinion of creating a Jewish Christmas is offensive.

    Just what is a "secular" Jew?

    I know Jews from reform, to ultra orthodox, I know Jews that never go to schul, I know jews that love bacon and cheese soup...

    Non-I call "secular"....

    Only a Jew that is DEAD on the inside as a Jew, is a 'secular" Jew. And I have never met one.

    I guess there are people who are Jews that are seeking acceptance by destroying their own history in the eyes of the larger community. I am not one of those.

    I do not disrespect Christmas to my Christian friends however ALL of them know my exact position on it.

    I do not respect others beliefs, IF i really did, I'd convert...

    Nor do I think others respect mine... History has proven that one out...

    I respect all ethical people inspite of their stupid childish beliefs, including my own...

  79. Here is limited and scrubbed version of what led to the Story of Chanuka

    Background

    In the 2nd century BCE, Judea lay between the Ptolemaic Kingdom based in Egypt and the Seleucid empire based in Syria, kingdoms formed after the death of Alexander the Great (336–323 BCE) Previously under the Ptolemies, Judea had fallen to the Seleucids in ca.200 BCE. Since the rule of Alexander in the near east, there had been a process of Hellenization, which affected Judea. Some Jews, mainly those of the urban upper class,[1] wished to dispense with Jewish law and to adopt a Greek lifestyle. Hellenizing Jews had built a gymnasium, competed internationally in Greek games, "removed their marks of circumcision and repudiated the holy covenant".[2]
    When Antiochus IV Epiphanes (ca. 215–164 BCE), became ruler of the Seleucid Empire in 175 BCE, the High Priest in Jerusalem was Onias III. Antiochus was insensitive to the views of religious Jews and treated the High Priest as a political appointee and one from whom money could be made. To Antiochus the High Priest was merely a local governor within his realm, who could be appointed or dismissed at will, while to orthodox Jews he was divinely appointed.[3] Jason, the brother of Onias, bribed Antiochus to make him High Priest instead. Jason abolished the traditional theocracy and constituted Jerusalem as a Greek polis.[4] Menelaus (who was not even a member of the Levite priestly family) then bribed Antiochus and was appointed High Priest in place of Jason. Menelaus had Onias assassinated. His brother Lysimachus took holy vessels from the Temple, causing riots and the thief's death at the hands of the rioters. Menelaus was arrested and arraigned before Antiochus, but he bribed his way out of trouble. Jason subsequently drove out Menelaus and became High Priest again. Antiochus pillaged the Temple, attacked Jerusalem and "led captive the women and children".[5] From this point onwards, Antiochus pursued a Hellenizing policy with zeal. This effectively meant banning traditional Jewish religious practice. In 167 BCE Jewish sacrifice was forbidden, sabbaths and feasts were banned and circumcision was outlawed. Altars to Greek gods were set up and animals prohibited to Jews were sacrificed on them. The Olympian Zeus was placed on the altar of the Temple. Possession of Jewish scriptures was made a capital offence. The motives of Antiochus are unclear. He may have been incensed at the overthrow of his appointee, Menelaus,[3] he may have been responding to an orthodox Jewish revolt that had drawn on the Temple and the Torah for its strength, or he may have been encouraged by a group of radical Hellenizers among the Jews.[6]

  80. Jerusalem is the Capital of the Jewish People.

    It has been for 3000 years...

    No matter what thief, warlord, Mullah, Pharaoh or squatter says...

    Jews have the right to live in Jerusalem...

    They have a right to their holy sites.

    No matter what Johnny come lately stuck on top of it...

    This "alice in wonderland" of a world embracing fake history of pseudo national people is just the straw that will break the camel's back...

  81. One finds that episodes of colonisation in Malayan history have their corresponding parallels in Palestinian history.

    ...

    Modern political developments showed more parallels:

    - Towards the end of British rule, each country had to contend with a terrorist uprising, a prelude to independence;

    - When one country acquired statehood, another was in abeyance: Israel and Malaya became independent nations while Palestine and Singapore did not;

    - For each country, a city's status was in question. Should Jerusalem be part of Israel? Should Singapore be part of Malaysia?;

  82. So I get up from my nap, and find four e-mails from my lawyer.

    She has talked to my accountant, and both of them are off the page.

    The godamned City of Moscow wants to exchange some property up north, which isn't worth a shit, and call that an equal value exchange of my parkland down south, which really is worth something.

    You simply don't know how frustrating it is to deal with these people.

    My son got to the heart of it in a few minutes.

    Have an appraisal on the property up north.

    An idea I hadn't thought of.

    But I am writing my lawyer tomorrow.

    Thank you for the songs, Melody.

    If we take all out posts down, there won't be nobody left here.
