THE TRUE FACE OF THE EU….

By ATWadmin On December 6th, 2008 at 6:42 pm

Here is a remarkable exhange between Václav Klaus, President of the Czech Republic, and members of the Conference of the Presidents of the European Parliament, Friday 5 December 2008, Prague Castle. Read it and weep.

SUMMONED TO THE HEADMASTER’S STUDY…

By ATWadmin On October 10th, 2008 at 6:19 pm

Naughty Irish.

“Brian Cowen, Ireland’s Prime Minister, must explain to a summit of Europe’s leaders next Wednesday how he is planning to resuscitate the EU Treaty, which was rejected by Irish voters in June. While the final decision will be taken in December, Mr Cowen will hear demands from France and Germany that a second referendum take place as early as March 2009, before European elections. Brussels diplomats have warned Ireland that it is isolated after angering other EU countries, such as Britain, by taking controversial financial crisis measures that benefited Irish banks while “dumping on others”. “The economy might be going into freefall and the Irish really did not help things. Sympathy for their difficulties is running out,” said a diplomat.”

The EU elite are treating the Irish people as if they have been naughty schoolchildren, now summoned to the headmaster’s study to explain their boorish behaviour. Naturally Cowen plays along with it since he is part of the same political  caste which has such contempt for the democratically expressed will of the Irish nation. So how will they get the Irish to say YES?

 

  • One document cites Irish sources predicting that Ireland will be offered an “opt-out” on EU defence and security cooperation alongside plans to ratify parts of the Treaty in the country’s parliament. A second vote would then be held on “sensitive” aspects of the EU Treaty with “diverse declarations” presented as major concessions to Irish concerns. Another text even suggests the slogan “if you don’t know, learn!” as the basis for a propaganda blitz targeting, what EU officials regard as, a “lack of understanding” among Irish voters. “We need to change minds by dramatising how serious the consequences of another No will be for Ireland,” said one official. Irish sources have said the campaign will be posed as “put up or shut up” with voters being given the stark choice between the Treaty and membership of the EU.

So the EU ignores the fact that Ireland has spoken and said No – and will push this treaty down their throats. That’s how tyrannies work and a tyranny is what is being forged. 

Biffo Figures It Out

By ATWadmin On September 2nd, 2008 at 10:07 am


A SUMMER’S work is done and the colleagues have seen a way through:


PARTS of the Lisbon Treaty might be passed by the Irish lower chamber without a referendum, said Prime Minister Brian Cowen on Monday night (1 September) while in Brussels for an EU summit on the Georgia crisis.



Mr Magoo would have seen that one coming. But Cowen is being less than honest. ‘Parts’ of the EU constitution will not be inflicted on an Irish people who have clearly rejected it. Every last word of the constitution will be imposed. By illegitimate parliamentary ratification and judicial activism, it will all come to pass.


It’s clear that the colleagues haven’t only been figuring out how to impose the EU constitution on the Irish without being spotted. It seems they’ve been looking very closely at what the Irish have been reading (my emphasis):


An internal briefing document of the European Commission seen by the Irish Times has criticised Ireland’s media for becoming more eurosceptic since the second Nice Treaty referendum ….. “Editorial is highly critical of the European Union and even more so of the Lisbon Treaty ….. The Irish Sun, which has 309,000 mostly young male readers, has “taken a campaigning Europhobic stance in line” with its sister title in the United Kingdom ….. The launch of the Irish Mail on Sunday and Irish Daily Mail has also affected Irish opinions on the EU, since they “have run intense Eurosceptic campaigns and employ a variety of right-wing journalists. These target primarily middle-class, middle-aged females, who tend to be a demographic that is widely more ‘Euro-hesitant’ ….. The document also highlights the importance of the Internet in the Lisbon No campaign ….. “Apart from official websites, the internet has largely been a space left to anti-European feeling. Given the ability to reach an audience at a much lower cost, and given the simplicity of the No campaign messages, it has proven to be easily malleable during the campaign and pre-campaign period,” the document reads.


Something tells me we haven’t heard the last of what Brussels thinks about the media in Ireland or elsewhere, and I suspect that when we hear of the matter again,  it’ll be something quite sinister.

UNDERSTANDING “NO”

By ATWadmin On July 19th, 2008 at 9:40 am

eussrno2.gifI see that that French President Sarkozy has said he is coming to Ireland on Monday to understand the message that the Irish people wanted to convey by rejecting the Lisbon Treaty. Simple. The message is  NO to the proposed Constitution so beloved of the Euro elite! They message is that Ireland rejects the power grab that the Lisbon Treaty represents. What’s so hard to understand about that?

The real reason Sarkozy is coming to Ireland is help soften up the Irish for the second referendum that will be held in the Spring of 2009 when they will be instructed to be good little Euroweenies and vote YES. Every propaganda channel will be unleashed to get the "Oui" that Sarkozy and his pals need and to hell with the already expressed will of the Irish people. Shameful. The EUSSR is an affront to all who value liberty.

BRITAIN SELLS OUT – NO VOTE REQUIRED.

By ATWadmin On July 17th, 2008 at 1:30 pm

eussrno2.gifI see that the UK has officially ratified the European Union’s Lisbon Constitutional Treaty. The documents were deposited with the Italian foreign affairs ministry in Rome on Wednesday. The move came despite doubts over its future after the "NO" vote in the Irish referendum. All EU states must ratify the treaty for it to come into force BUT that is a mere technicality since No means Yes. All this has been done by the UK government without them daring to seek popular support for this move. Heathcliffe Brown KNOWS that he would lose any referendum held on the Lisbon Constitution so instead it is surreptitiously done behind closed doors – with democracy being turned on its head and the voice of the people muted so the political class can say what the totalitarian EU wants to hear.

FRANCE ORDERS IRELAND TO VOTE AGAIN…

By ATWadmin On July 15th, 2008 at 7:08 pm

Wonder how the Irish will react to the news that French President Nicolas Sarkozy has said that Ireland would have to hold a second referendum on the Lisbon Treaty after rejecting the EU reform package last month, according to reports?

“The Irish will have to vote again,” he told members of his conservative party at a meeting in his office. An official in Paris confirmed Mr Sarkozy made the comment during the private meeting.

So, the voice of the Irish people is dismissed by the contemptible Eurocrats and they are treated like naughty children – forced to go and stand in the corner, think over their irresponsible behaviour, and mend their ways. Is there ANY Irish readers out there prepared to come on here and SUPPORT the view expressed by Sarkozy, a view with Brian Cowen and the rest of the Irish political establishment and media elite will go along with? Ireland must not say NO to EU plans – yes is the only game in town. Expect a PR offensive of unprecedented proportions…..

EU Constitution, Meet Bus

Czech PM’s party may trade Lisbon treaty for U.S. base

Czech Prime Minister Mirek Topolánek (Civic Democrats, ODS) said today he cannot imagine ODS lawmakers supporting the Lisbon treaty unless parliament passes the Czech-U.S. treaty on stationing a U.S. radar base on Czech soil.

“It is hypothetical. In view of that the ODS group (of deputies) has 81 members and I think that I know opinions of most of them, it is very difficult for me to imagine that the deputies, or ODS senators, would vote for the Lisbon treaty if the ratification of the treaty with the United States failed,” Topolánek said on Radio Cesko.

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and her Czech counterpart, Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg, signed the main treaty on stationing the radar base on Czech soil in Prague on Tuesday.

Topolánek said “It is not entirely acceptable to connect it like this. But for the deputies who can make a free choice, it can be a certain aspect that will play a role in the decision-making.”

To take effect, the treaty must be ratified by Czech parliament and signed by the president.

And President Vaclav Klaus has said that he is ready “without any hesitation” to sign the treaty

Support for it particularly in the lower house is, however, uncertain. It is rejected by the opposition and also by some government Green Party deputies.

Treaty opponents are claiming “that the US anti-missile defence shield in Europe is likely to be abandoned by the next American administration”. If Barack [deleted] Obama is elected POTUS, he may very well do just that.

But be very careful of what you wish for. Barry O could also decide that it’s time for Europe to take care of Europe and bring all American forces home. But what about NATO you whine? Surrender Monkey Logic says that the need for NATO ended when the Berlin Wall came down. After all the NATO treaty is . . . just words . . . .

The Lisbon treaty, which Topolánek signed for the Czech Republic, is opposed by some deputies from his party, the ODS. It was on their initiative that the Senate sent the treaty to the Constitutional Court to check whether it is in harmony with the Czech Constitution.

ISOLATE IRELAND…

By ATWadmin On July 6th, 2008 at 9:06 am

What a sad burlesque the EU has become. I read that the French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, will use a Paris summit next weekend to increase pressure on Ireland’s prime minister to find a way out of the impasse created by his country’s rejection of the Lisbon treaty. Brian Cowen, the Irish leader, may want to keep a low profile at a weekend of French festivities starting on July 13 when he will again face the ire of EU leaders over Ireland’s no vote on the treaty. France assumed the presidency of the EU for six months last Tuesday and Sarkozy is to travel to Dublin on July 21 to ram home the point in talks with the taoiseach. The French strategy appears to be aimed at isolating Ireland.

I wonder how the Irish people feel about the way in which their voice has been treated with ill-concealed contempt  by the EU politicians? The EU does  not listen to the people, instead it seeks to subvert the will of the people. THAT is why the UK should get out – what we see happening to the Irish is proof that this growing totalitarian superstate will remove our freedoms AND silence our voice. 

SARKOZY AND THE IRISH….

By ATWadmin On June 21st, 2008 at 12:53 pm

mandy.jpgI laughed at the news that Peter Mandelson has been blamed by the French last night for the Irish No vote… and the world’s starving children!!

Nicolas Sarkozy’s outburst electrified an EU summit bogged down by rows over Ireland’s rejection of the Lisbon Treaty. And it brought unlikely support from Gordon Brown, Mr Mandelson’s most bitter enemy in politics. EU leaders stayed up late arguing over how much pressure to put on Dublin to vote again, amid fears that the constitutional project could collapse. Asked who should take responsibility for the outpouring of public hostility to the EU in Ireland, Mr Sarkozy said just one word: ‘Mandelson’.

Really? Now Mandelson is a rogue – a disgraced politician who was forced to resign not once but twice, but Sarkozy is way off the mark. Those to "blame" for the Irish vote are the Eurocrats – including Sarkozy – who FAIL to listen to the people. Rather than giving poor old BIFFO four months to "reflect" on how the Irish can say YES, it would do the EU better to take the four months themselves and reflect on the EUSSR they are creating, dividing the elite from the people of Europe. This way lies revolution.

CLOUD CUCKOO LAND…

By ATWadmin On June 15th, 2008 at 10:16 am

The Sunday Times is always amusingly pro-UK PM Gordon Brown and nowhere is this more evident in this piece of trash concerning the  notion that Gordon the Brave is privately ready to sacrifice the Lisbon treaty rather than allow the Irish " no" vote to create a two-tier Europe. Mmmmm. I detect spin.

Despite the Irish referendum, France, Germany and senior Brussels officials have insisted there should be no delay in implementing the European Union blueprint. But No 10 sources say the prime minister would rather see the entire constitutional treaty collapse than allow individual member states to be left trailing in a two-speed Europe. A Downing Street source said: “The legal position on this is very clear: the treaty cannot come into force until all 27 countries have ratified it.” One senior government official said anyone who thought the Irish vote could be ignored was “living in cloud-cuckoo-land”.

But THAT is exactly the situation. The Eurocrats DO live in cloud cuckoo land, safe in their feathered Brussels nest. Brown WILL go along with whatever is proposed and legality has got nothing to do with it. Laws can be changed to accommodate the wishes of all  the European Little Hitler’s.
