The debate about the possible harmful effects of GM foods came roaring back after a French scientific research linked the appearance of cancerous tumors in rats consuming GM corn.

The study caused an uproar and the French Prime Minister, Jean-Marc Ayrault, came to announce incentive measures for banning GMOs (genetically modified organisms) in all of Europe, if it confirms the result of the harmfulness of the product.” - Amanda Lawrence (emphasis added)

“According to the German daily Süddeutsche Zeitung, German Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich and his French counterpart, Claude Guéant, have formulated a letter to their colleagues in which they call for governments to once again be allowed to control their borders as “an ultima ratio” — that is, measure of last resort — “and for a limited period of time.” - Graham Summers

European Crisis: Integration VERSUS National Sovereignty

“In the long-term, the loss of control over the budget and banking sector would leave the nations under the authority of an external force - a concept that threatens the very existence of the nation state as we know it today. This key contradiction between EU integration and national sovereignty undermines the European project from its foundations.”

Stratfor analyst Adriano Bosoni discusses the political tension at the core of the European financial crisis: the member states’ struggle to integrate fiscally and maintain national sovereignty.

EURASIAN ECONOMIC BOOM: China’s Land Bridge to Europe

Map: Yunus Emre Hatunoğlu

“The prospect of an unparalleled Eurasian economic boom lasting into the next Century and beyond is at hand. The first steps binding the vast economic space are being constructed with a number of little-publicized rail links connecting China, Russia, Kazakhstan and parts of Western Europe. It is becoming clear to more people in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Eurasia including China and Russia that their natural tendency to build these markets faces only one major obstacle: NATO and the US Pentagon’s Full Spectrum Dominance obsession.  Rail infrastructure is a major key to building vast new economic markets across Eurasia.”  F. William Engdahl

Ellen Brown: How Goldman Sachs captured Europe

Eagle In Flight by Jeff Ratcliff / FreeDigitalPhotos.net *

“Goldman Sachs and the financial technocrats have taken over the European ship.  Democracy has gone out the window, all in the name of keeping the central bank independent from the “abuses” of government.  Yet the government is the people—or it should be.  A democratically elected government represents the people.  Europeans are being hoodwinked into relinquishing their cherished democracy to a rogue band of financial pirates, and the rest of the world is not far behind.”  Ellen Brown

“Goldman Sachs is about to take over Europe, but you wouldn’t know it by reading the papers.

On Tuesday, G-Sax alum, Mario Draghi, will take the helm at the European Central Bank replacing retiring ECB president Jean-Claude Trichet. The appointment has slipped by the media virtually unnoticed…”

“Guarantees on bank debt is a direct subsidy to big finance, which is why we think that a former G-Sax exec. will support the policy.”

“The Street’s total exposure to the euro zone totals about $2.7 trillion.
“Greece isn’t the real problem. Nor is Ireland, Italy, Portugal, or Spain. The real problem is the financial system — centered on Wall Street. And we still haven’t solved it.”

Robert Reich

“And that problem will not be solved in the way that you might think of it, because the people ‘solving it’ are the same ones who created it. Their every effort will be directed toward increasing their power and preserving their situations and advantages, to the exclusion of most other concerns.”
Harvey Organ

Anglo-American financiers planned attack against Europe

Wikimedia Commons *

“In the 20th century, Europe managed to commit collective suicide not once, but twice – in 1914, and again starting in 1939. Have the European elites learned absolutely nothing? Has the European public learned absolutely nothing? Is a third collective suicide – this time by a failure to prevent the catastrophic and chaotic breakup of the euro under Anglo-American speculative attack– really inevitable?”

“Those who advocate the demolition of the euro must explain why they insist on surrendering to the brazen aggression of London and New York. Why are they determined to appease Goldman Sachs, Barclays Bank, J.P. Morgan Chase, and the rest of the Anglo-American wolfpack?”  Webster G. Tarpley, Ph.D.    Continue reading

Rockefeller, Morgan, and War

World War II might therefore be considered, from one point of view, as a coalition war: the Morgans got their war in Europe, the Rockefellers theirs in Asia.”

“It should be clear that the name of the political party in power is far less important than the particular regime’s financial and banking connections.”
Murray N. Rothbard
