Salvini Proposes Seizing Control Of Italy’s Gold Reserves From Central Bank

  • This “independence of the Central Bank” is a FAKE psyop meme/idea. It is suggesting something entirely false. Privately owned central banks are NOT independent. They serve the interests of their bankster owners. This meme/idea is to promote a LIE and anyone attacking the central bank is painted as an aggressor (ie. bad guy) and the central bank a victim (ie. good guy). The reality is central banks are unaccountable to the government and the public which they proclaim to serve (falsely). They are “above the law”.
  • So, whenever you hear anyone mentioning “you are attacking the independence of the Central Bank”, you should tell them to stop deflecting and stop protecting an organization that is totally unaccountable to the government and people, and stop serving the private interests of an elitist groups of banksters.

    Another Secret Federal Reserve Bailout, $7.7 Trillion This Time
  • Salvini Proposes Seizing Control Of Italy’s Gold Reserves From Central Bank
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    Italy’s populist de facto leader Matteo Salvini seems set on shaking Europe’s financial establishment to the core.

    One day after the Italian deputy prime minister and leader of the League party, called for the elimination of Italy’s central bank and the country’s financial regulator, Consob, saying the two institutions should be “reduced to zero, more than changing one or two people, reduced to zero”, or in other words eliminated, and that “fraudsters” who inflicted losses on Italian savers should “end up in prison for a long time”, Salvini prompted fresh shocked gasps in Brussels and Frankfurt when he raised the possibility of seizing Italy’s massive gold reserves away from the country’s central bank.

    “The gold is the property of the Italian people, not of anyone else,” Salvini said in comments to reporters on Monday, according to the FT.

    The controversial comments, which were seen as threatening the “independence” of the Italian central bank, whose one-time head was none other than Mario Draghi, prompted Giovanni Tria, Italy’s economy minister, to defend the independence of the central bank.

Is Italy Preparing For COLLAPSE? Italy Tightens Grip On Huge Gold Reserves!

Salvini Calls For Elimination Of Italy’s Central Bank, “Prison Time For Fraudsters”

  • Salvini Calls For Elimination Of Italy’s Central Bank, “Prison Time For Fraudsters”
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    On Friday, in a moment of predictive insight, Bank of America correctly warned that the greatest threat to EPS – i.e., markets – in the next 3 years “is an acceleration of global populism via taxation, regulation & government intervention.” Just one day later, this warning to the financial establishment was starkly manifest in that ground zero for Europe’s populist revolt, Italy, where the country’s coalition government hinted at where the global populist wave is headed next when he slammed the country’s central bank leadership and stock market regulator, escalating its attacks on establishment figures ahead of the European parliamentary vote in May.

    Matteo Salvini, the outspoken head of the anti-immigrant League party, said the Bank of Italy and Consob, the country’s stock market regulator, should be “reduced to zero, more than changing one or two people, reduced to zero”, or in other words eliminated, and that “fraudsters” who inflicted losses on Italian savers should “end up in prison for a long time.”

    As the FT notes, this latest broadside against Italy’s financial establishment comes as the two parties which are increasingly at odds with each other amid speculation Salvini may hold elections to become the sole leader of Italy, prepare to run against each other in the European parliamentary elections in May, a contest widely seen as a proxy for national polls. Meanwhile, both leaders have also increased their attacks against targets including the EU and French president Emmanuel Macron.

Italy Blocks EU Position in Recognizing Venezuela’s Opposition Leader

  • PressTV Published on Feb 5, 2019
    Italy has blocked a joint EU position to recognize Venezuela’s opposition leader Juan Guaido as interim president. Eleven countries of the bloc recognized Guaido after President Nicolas Maduro ignored their demand to call a new election. But Italy rejected a draft EU statement on the issue. The Five-Star movement, a party to Italy’s coalition government, described sanctions on Venezuela as a pretext for military intervention. It said Italy will never recognize people who appoint themselves president. The European Parliament has called on Italy to change its position.

Viktor Orbán Joins Right-Wing Leaders’ Plan to Take Over EU – and Predicts There will be “Two Civilisations” in Europe in the Future

  • Viktor Orbán Joins Right-Wing Leaders’ Plan to Take Over EU – and Predicts There will be “Two Civilisations” in Europe in the Future
    by , https://voiceofeurope.com/
    Matteo Salvini, the right-wing Interior Minister in the Italian government, recently called for a Rome-Warsaw axis to build “a new Europe” that was against migration.

    “I’d like to create a pact, an alliance for everyone who wants to save Europe, the more of us, the better,” he said. Poland’s right-wing Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said earlier this week that “with Mr Salvini we are on the same page with regards to many European matters”. Austria’s right-wing chancellor Sebastian Kurz last year called for an anti-immigration “axis” using the same language. He then cited Italy and Germany as possible allies.

    And now Hungary’s Prime Minister has welcomed the creation of an anti-immigration “axis” in Europe as well. In a speech, Viktor Orbán said he wanted to see an anti-immigration majority in the EU institutions and that he would team up with countries like Italy and Poland to change the bloc’s direction.

    The right-wing leader said there could be no “compromise” on the migration issue and that he would have to “fight” leaders such as Emmanuel Macron to “respect Hungarians’ decision not to become an immigrant nation”. Mr Orban also said he believes there will be “two civilisations” in the EU: “one mixed Muslim-Christian in the west and one traditional, in central Europe”.

    The far right is expected to make significant gains across the continent in this year’s European parliament elections. If the UK leaves the EU as it is set to do on 29 March 2019 it will not be able to participate in the European parliament elections. The previous round of European elections in the UK were won by Ukip in 2014.

Franco-Germany Treaty Likely to Boost Multi-Speed EU Integration, Leaving Italy Behind

  • Franco-Germany Treaty Likely to Boost Multi-Speed EU Integration, Leaving Italy Behind
    by http://dailyfinland.fi/
    The new treaty signed by France and Germany on Tuesday may give a key boost to the multi-speed integration of Europe, Italian analysts said. However, they warned that the treaty would risk leaving behind other major partners, including Italy, which are currently led by populist forces.

    The Treaty of Aachen, signed by Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron on Jan. 22, renews a friendship sealed with the signature of the famous Elysee Treaty in 1963. The new 16-page agreement covers several areas of bilateral cooperation, including foreign policy, defense, trade, research, climate and energy.

    “Seen from the EU’s perspective, the treaty is a relevant event,” Federico Niglia, international relations and European history professor with the LUISS University in Rome, told Xinhua. “All stages of the so-called Franco-German axis have always served as a metronome for the European integration process.”
    –   
    Closer Franco-German cooperation has also been consistent with the path of enhanced cooperation laid down by the 2007 EU Treaty of Lisbon, which opened the possibility of a multi-speed (or multi-tier) Europe, meaning different EU countries integrating at different levels and pace.
    –   
    Yet, the analyst noted that this renewed friendship between the two major countries of Europe also comes at a time when the EU appears to be “particularly divided.” “The fact that the treaty was signed by two non-populist governments a few months before the elections to renew the European Parliament (in May) means that it would also take on an anti-populist value,” Niglia explained.
    –   
    Michele Nones, scientific advisor at the Rome-based Institute for International Affairs (IAI) and European affairs advisor at the Italian Ministry of Defense, agreed that the new treaty was a good signal for the EU. “It is a sign of strengthening integration at the core of the European process, which has always been represented by Franco-German cooperation,” Nones told Xinhua.
    –   
    Nonetheless, both analysts highlighted that this “core” now comprised only two of the 27 EU member states (considering the forthcoming Brexit). “This so-called inner circle, which could speed up the overall integration process, is for now limited to France and Germany, which might not be seen as positive,” Nones stressed.

EU CIVIL WAR: ‘I Must FIGHT HIM!’ Hungary’s Orban Issues Shock Warning to Macron

  • EU CIVIL WAR: ‘I Must FIGHT HIM!’ Hungary’s Orban Issues Shock Warning to Macron
    by HARVEY GAVIN, https://www.express.co.uk/
    HUNGARIAN Prime Minister Viktor Orban has vowed to stand up to Europe’s “pro-immigration forces” led by Emmanuel Macron, warning the French leader: “I must fight you”.

    Mr Orban, whose right-wing government has presided over a crackdown on immigration, said his issue with Mr Macron was “nothing personal” but that he had a duty to oppose him on the issue. Speaking at a press conference earlier today, the Hungarian firebrand said: “There is no denying that Emmanuel Macron is an important figure, moreover, the leader of the pro-immigration forces. “It is nothing personal, but a matter of our countries’ future.

    “If what he wants with regards to migration materialises in Europe, that would be bad for Hungary, therefore I must fight him.” Mr Orban’s warning to the French leader comes as other EU countries including Italy and Poland look to shift the balance of power in Brussels in this year’s European Parliament elections.

Italy’s Salvini Suggests ‘European Spring’ to Bring End to ‘German-French Axis’ on Continent

  • Italy’s Salvini Suggests ‘European Spring’ to Bring End to ‘German-French Axis’ on Continent
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Italy’s Euroskeptic deputy prime minister Matteo Salvini has said he wants Italy and Poland to join together to create a “European Spring” which could end the long-standing French and German domination on the continent.

    Speaking during a press conference with Polish Interior Minister Joachim Brudziński in Warsaw on Wednesday, Salvini said that Poland and Italy “will be part of the new spring of Europe, the renaissance of European values” which would create a “new equilibrium” where the dominance of France and Germany is diminished.

    The leader of the Northern League party said that upcoming European parliamentary elections, set for May, could lead away from a Europe “that is run by bureaucrats.”

    Salvini, who is aiming to forge alliances with other Eurosceptic parties across Europe ahead of the elections, was in Warsaw for meetings with members of Poland’s ruling Law and Justice party, which shares a similar anti-immigration and anti-Brussels ideology. At the meeting, Brudziński also praised Salvini’s immigration policy and his decision to close Italian ports to migrant boats, saying that Poland was also committed to “strengthening borders.”

    At a press conference with France’s right-wing National Rally leader Marine Le Pen in October, Salvini promised a new era of “common sense” was coming to Europe with the rise of nationalist parties.

    Salvini’s Northern League formed a coalition government with the anti-establishment Five Star Movement in June last year. M5S leader Luigi Di Maio has also been seeking to make friends with other anti-establishment parties across the continent, holding meetings with a number of party leaders from Poland, Croatia and Finland who share similar values.
