Finance Ministers from 10 European Union Countries to Probe Brexit Effect on Financial Tax

Daniel 7:7 – ” … behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.”

  • Finance Ministers from 10 European Union Countries to Probe Brexit Effect on Financial Tax
    by Joe Kirwin, https://www.bna.com/
    Finance ministers from 10 European Union countries agreed Sept. 16 to study whether Brexit will harm their plans to establish a financial transactions tax (FTT).


    In addition, European Commission spokeswoman Vanessa Mock told Bloomberg BNA Sept. 17 in an email that “ministers agreed on a way forward to progress on the FTT proposal on the basis of the agreed core engine and finding a solution for pension funds.”

    Germany, France and other EU countries have been engaged in intensive efforts to sway London-based banks to move some or all of their operations to their respective capitals after Brexit. FTT meetings scheduled in June and July were canceled over concerns the negotiations might hinder their recruitment efforts.

    Despite the Sept. 16 commitment to conduct an analysis on the Brexit threat and to carry on with the FTT negotiations, the work to establish the levy on financial transactions could falter again depending on upcoming elections in Germany. Should the German Social Democratic Party fare as poorly as current pre-election campaign polls suggest, and the party isn’t part of a future German government, Germany could drop out of the FTT talks. A commitment to an EU FTT was a condition the German Social Democratic Party made more than three years ago as part of its coalition agreement with the Angela Merkel-led Christian Democratic Party.

    Speaking at the end of 2016, current German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble insisted that the only way an FTT would work without distorting the EU single market would be if all EU member states participate.

    The current FTT negotiations only involve 10 EU member states because a previous EU proposal from the European Commission didn’t get the support of all 28 EU member states. As a result, there was an agreement by the 11 countries to use a special “enhanced cooperation” legislative procedure to get around the normal rules requiring unanimous consent of all 28 EU countries when it comes to tax legislation. The number of countries dropped to 10 after Estonia dropped out.

    Core Engine
    In October 2016, the 10 EU finance ministers agreed to a “core engine” that will drive the FTT. The four core elements involve the following:

Jean-Claude Juncker’s ‘Tragic’ EU Vision “United States of Europe”, Needs to be Stopped ‘Now’, Rages German MEP

  • Juncker is playing the ‘Bad Cop’ in a ‘Good Cop’ – ‘Bad Cop’ routine. The ‘Good Cop‘ appears to be Emmanuel (“god” with us) Macron. The ‘Good Cop’ will save Europe from all the problems Juncker created by instituting a 10 countries federation: United States of Europe.
  • ‘A FOOL’S VISION’ Juncker’s plans could lead to total collapse of the EU – German MEP
    by JOE BARNES AND JODIE PACKWOOD IN STRASBOURG, CHRIS CAMPBELL, http://www.express.co.uk/
    JEAN-CLAUDE JUNCKER’S “fool’s vision” of Europe could lead to the break-up of the European Union after Brexit, according to a German MEP.

    Hans-Olaf Henkel, vice-president of the European Parliament’s third-largest group the European Conservatives and Reformists, said Brexit was a “big disaster” that Mr Juncker was ignoring. European Commission president Mr Juncker delivered his much-anticipated State of the Union speech on Wednesday with a swipe at Britain by insisting the EU will move towards greater integration despite Brexit. 

    But, speaking to Express.co.uk, Mr Henkel said the UK’s decision to leave the Brussels bloc would be just as bad for the EU as Britain. He said: “He called it a full vision of Europe. I must say, it was more a fools vision of Europe because he seemed to have totally ignored the realities of Europe.

    Mr Juncker set out his 12-month masterplan to steer the troubled bloc through the escalating refugee crisis and laid out plans to reform the eurozone. Keen to push ahead with his masterplan, billed as the biggest reboot in the EU’s history, Mr Juncker ratcheted-up the federalisation of the 60-year-old bloc’s core economies.

    The Brussels boss has also called for EU integration in the face of rising populism after Britain voted to sever ties with the bloc ahead of crunch elections in Italy, Sweden, Hungary and the Czech Republic, where eurosceptic parties are gaining momentum. 

    It appears Jean-Claude Juncker is keen to make his mark in the EU as his five-year term as European Commission president expires in 2019 with his grand ambition to rebuild the bloc, left in tatters after Britain’s momentous decision to leave.

Why NATO Chief Maintains ‘There-Could-Be-Only-One’ Stance on Calls for EU Army

  • Why NATO Chief Maintains ‘There-Could-Be-Only-One’ Stance on Calls for EU Army
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has again cautioned against the creation of a European army, also admitting that Europe cannot do without NATO, the US and Britain. Why does he repeat this warning like a mantra time after time?

    Speaking to Sputnik, Czech military expert Ivan Kratochvil said that “the creation of the EU army with the aim of ensuring the territorial integrity and inviolability of EU countries unequivocally threatens the US interests in Europe.”

    He drew attention to the fact that Stoltenberg’s remarks came ahead of an informal meeting of the defense and foreign ministers of EU countries which was held in the Estonian capital Tallinn earlier this week.

    Kratochvil pointed to Stoltenberg stressing that NATO remains committed to protecting the EU and that both organizations should complement each other rather than compete.

    “He wants more European forces, more modern capabilities and more defense spending. Also, Stoltenberg wants to avoid differences and such duplication as the creation of the European command or the European army as well as the rhetoric that Europe could do without NATO,” Kratochvil said.

    According to him, the NATO Secretary General has repeatedly warned against creating the European army because “the alliance provides US dominance in Europe.”

    “This is a forceful instrument of US influence on its allies and the countries neighboring with NATO members. From the point of view of geopolitics, Russia is the first and most serious enemy of NATO,” Kratochvil pointed out.

EUROPE PANICS: EU’s Brexit Unity on the BRINK as French Urge for Compromise in Trade Talks

  • EUROPE PANICS: EU’s Brexit Unity on the BRINK as French Urge for Compromise in Trade Talks
    by SIMON OSBORNE, http://www.express.co.uk/
    EUROPEAN Union’s Brexit position after France and other EU nations signalled they were willing to tear up the Brussels-imposed timetable on negotiations and get trade talks under way in October.

    The French proposals could lead to a major climbdown by European Unions hardliners who insist the terms of Britain’s departure need to be thrashed out before any free trade discussions get under way.

    The UK refuses to write any cheques unless payments are linked to a future trade deal with the EU, while Brussels insists there can be no trade talks until the money question is settled. But in a sign of growing tensions and possible splits within the EU, senior French diplomats have now made it clear they want the deadlock broken.

Russian Demands Investigation of Allegations US and UK Supplied Chemical Weapons to Terrorists

  • Russian Demands Investigation of Allegations US and UK Supplied Chemical Weapons to Terrorists
    by Adam Garrie, http://theduran.com/
    Russia takes the new reports from Syria very seriously and seeks to confirm the worrying claims.

    This week Syria has alleged that in addition to the already acknowledged arming of terrorists in Syria with weapons and vehicles, America and Britain also gave them access to chemicals which could easily be weaponised. Specifically, chemical weapons confirmed by the OPCW to be in the hands of terrorists in Aleppo and Damascus are said to have derived from the US and UK.

    Today, the Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Maria Zakharova stated,

    “This information requires immediate verification by international bodies. This is not the first time when the western countries, namely, the representatives and the states involved in the US-led coalition, are suspected of supplying and supporting extremist groups, terrorists and militants. The information requires serious attention and immediate verification”.

    This crucial information that Russia intends to verify as soon as possible not only validates an OPCW report and mission which signed off on the fact that the Syrian government has not possessed chemical weapons since 2014, but that the terrorists in Syria which have been known to use such weapons may have obtained them via the United States and United Kingdom.

“None Of It Was True”: 103 Years Later, The FT Admits It Lied And Colluded With The Bank of England

  • “None Of It Was True”: 103 Years Later, The FT Admits It Lied And Colluded With The Bank of England
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com
    When one strips away the lies about central banks’ “inflation and employment” mandates and focuses on what they really do – which is to keep asset prices artificially supported and volatility suppressed – the motive behind virtually every central bank act becomes readily apparent: preserve (and increase, if possible) confidence in the market and economy, while saying anything and everything that helps achieve this, or in other words, lie but don’t get caught.

    Today, thanks to the FT, we have proof of precisely this, in what may be the first recorded instance of a central bank openly lying in an attempt to preserve market stability… and getting caught.

    On Tuesday, the Bank of England admitted that the UK government failed to find enough investors to fully cover its its 1914 War Loan, and was forced to turn to the central bank to help plug a deficit of more than £100m in the fundraising. However, it did so only after it lied to the public that the bond was oversubscribed:
