New Italian government minister rejects EU and U.S. narrative on Ukraine by saying it was a foreign funded 'fake' revolution

With the new Italian government having proved it is more than willing to take on the bureaucrats in Brussels over EU policies that have kept the Southern state in perpetual austerity over the past decade, on July 19 the Minister of the Interior proved that they are also willing to challenge EU and U.S. policies over Russia.

And in particular, over the narrative that the Maidan Coup was a completely internal revolution sparked by the Ukrainian people.

Italian Drumbeat against EU Economic Policy

Italian Drumbeat against EU Economic Policy

President Donald Trump slammed the European Union (EU) during a speech to his supporters in North Dakota on Wednesday. Speaking to thousands of people at Scheels Arena in Fargo, N.D. the President said, “We love the countries of the European Union. But the European Union, of course, was set up to take advantage of the United States. And you know what, we can’t let that happen.The Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin predictably seized on the remarks in the context of trans-Atlantic trade and an alleged conversation between Trump and French President Emanuel Macron to accuse POTUS of seeking to destroy the EU (some would reply ‘if only’). Josh Rogin’s column and CNN appearance is typical “OMG everything Trump does benefits Russia!” neocon hysteria, ignoring the agency of Europeans in determining whether or not the EU will survive and conflating the Franco-German core with ‘Europe’ as a whole.

Nonetheless, Trump has praised former UKIP leader Nigel Farage as “Mr. Brexit”. And there is no doubt Trump sees the EU not as a compliment to American foreign policy but as a competitor, with the bloc running a large trade surplus to the U.S. largely thanks to German exports. What the CNN/MSNBC globalist mouthpiece media ignore is that it will be Europeans, not Americans, who ultimately decide that the Brussels bureaucracy is failing to meet the needs of their people. Naturally the CNN/MSNBC talking heads captive to their #TrumpRussia narratives don’t even mention that, after tearing up the JCPOA with Iran, the Administration is trying to foist expensive US liquefied natural gas (LNG) imports on Europe — and neither policy is supported by the Kremlin.

In our view Europe must return to the original aim of many Gaullist supporters of economic, but not political integration — a free trade zone with relaxed internal borders but strong external border protections, a Continent of sovereign nations at peace, neither inundated by refugee flows nor engaged in a second Cold War with Russia. If Trump accelerates that process by inspiring populist politicians on the Continent like the ‘Austro-Hungarian’, Polish and especially Italian governments, so be it. — JWS

City of London's Foolish Coup Against Italy Will Hasten a Financial Crash

City of London's Foolish Coup Against Italy Will Hasten a Financial Crash

The London-centered eurodollar elite have just used Italy's State President to block its democratically elected majority government from taking office, effectively carrying out a coup against Italy.

Now, can any doubt remain, that British intelligence circles and European Union elites simply refused to accept Donald Trump's election as U.S. President, and started a drive which still continues, to force him out of the White House?

Both Italians and Americans committed the same offense, of electing a government, or a President, who defied British geopolitics by wanting great-power cooperation with Russia and China, and who refused to follow orders and "market rules" of City of London financial powers' on economic policy.

Another European Central Bank (ECB) Coup in Italy

Another European Central Bank (ECB) Coup in Italy

May 28, 2018 (EIRNS)—What happened last weekend in Italy can be fairly described as a coup. The coup executor was State President Sergio Mattarella, but the string-puller is the European Central Bank. Typical of the general media coverage, the German economic daily Handelsblatt applauds Mattarella: “Italy’s State President Did It Right—Forza Mattarella!” Handelsblatt talks about the political chaos which has dominated Italy for weeks, neglecting the chaos that has dominated Germany for months. “Sergio Mattarella has fully used the power of his office and the Constitution and has prevented a populist coalition in Italy.” (“Forza Mattarella!” is like a sports cheer: “Go Mattarella!”)

The daily Il Giornale reports a confidential statement by Matteo Renzi, former Prime Minister (2014-2016) to a collaborator, saying, “In these days, Mattarella very much listened to Draghi and Visco,” referring respectively to the ECB president and Bank of Italy governor.

Powers That Be stick it to Italian populist movement by inserting banker technocrat as Prime Minister

So much for fair elections and the will of the people in Italy.

Following the formation of a coalition government which was led by two anti-EU and anti-Euro political parties, the entire new government was scuttled over the weekend when President Sergio Mattarella disbanded it just weeks after its formation and inserted a former IMF banker as interim Prime Minister.

Spy-Gate Knocked Out Russia-Gate; Italy's New Euroskeptic Coalition Government

Spy-Gate Knocked Out Russia-Gate; Italy's New Euroskeptic Coalition Government

'Spy-Gate'—the exposure of British filthy-operations against U.S. elections and the Presidency, is now in the process of knocking out Russia-Gate, which itself was a treasonous concoction by these same networks. President Donald Trump noted this in multiple tweets yesterday and today, saying, "Look how things have turned around on the Criminal Deep State. They go after Phony Collusion with Russia, a made-up scam, and end up getting caught in a major SPY scandal, the likes of which this country may never have seen before! What goes around, comes around!" He tweeted this week, "SPYGATE could be one of the biggest scandals in history!"

Details are now coming out, including crimes by an interagency taskforce (FBI, Treasury, CIA and others,) starting in early 2016—long before any "official" mandate for an investigation of Russia and Trump, and interlinked tightly with British espionage networks.

We are at a moment of opportunity to make way for the new economic system, now proceeding through the Belt and Road Initiative framework, and long overdue in the Trans-Atlantic. This is not a time to watch from the sidelines, to see how Trump wages a fight, nor to wish-and-hope some lone members of Congress will do the right thing. But, as citizens, it is our call to mobilize.

Italy's new government threatens alot of chaos for the EU, including voting no during next renewal for Russian sanctions

Italy's new government threatens alot of chaos for the EU, including voting no during next renewal for Russian sanctions

While the UK's vote to leave the EU was a historic milestone for the Continental coalition, in the end it has done little to change the landscape of unelected rule by bureaucrats residing in Brussels. But following Italy's recent elections and their ability to install a completely different government that is both anti-euro and anti-EU, the Southern European country has the power to create great chaos for the entire Union.

This is because under the EU charter, most major policies must be achieved through a unanimous vote.  And while there was great hope a few years ago that Greece would become this change agent following their installation of the Syriza government, this was quickly negated by the Troika's ability to hold much needed loans over their heads and force them to vote in lockstep with France and Germany.
