Der Spiegel Online June 23, 2008: This must be the biggest collection of scoundrels in the world. There are 27 of them. No, more: It's not just the heads of state and government who are here, but also the foreign ministers…..They're plotting something, once again, searching for a way to put one over — and a really big one, this time — on the people they represent. They've been working on it for a long time, picking up where their predecessors left off.
Again and again, they trick their populations into accepting the European Union.
It's been going on for 50 years: politicians making policy against the people. The only time anyone ever notices is when the people — one people, in this case — are asked for their opinion. It happened in Ireland recently, when
the Irish made it clear that they refuse to accept the politics of scoundrels.

They voted against the Lisbon Treaty (more…), and in doing so they plunged the EU into yet another of its many crises. It was the big topic at the meeting of the European Council , when the heads of state and government got together, hoping to devise a way out of their current impasse, a way that would enable them to continue making policy against the people without the people noticing what they are up to. What they were in fact discussing was a handful of tricks, tricks involving lawyers

Bruno Waterfield,
The  Telegraph, July 2, 2008
: The French strategy during their six month EU Presidency, which began on July 1, is to isolate Ireland after last month's referendum rejection of the Lisbon European Union Treaty.
With the Irish people in quarantine, the other 26 EU countries will press ahead with ratifying the Treaty - 19 have done so. Mr Sarkozy made it very clear that there would be no renegotiation of a Treaty that was Part II of the EU Constitution rejected by French and Dutch voters three years ago. "There will be no Treaty Part III," he said.

The Irish do not count.
France, along with the rest of the EU is looking for "escape hatch". "We need a soft landing in October," said Mr Sarkozy, when there will be EU summit in Brussels to find way forward by the time of European elections on June 4, 2009. The Irish either will be asked to vote again, in a rerun of Ireland's second referendum on the Nice Treaty in 2002 - or Ireland's people will be bypassed.
Any means necessary to get an Irish Yes, is what the French President is getting at here. There is no other answer. But the Poles and Czechs are flies in Mr Sarkozy's ointment, with both uppity new East European countries threatening to delay or block a Treaty that requires all 27 EU member states to ratify it before it enters into force.

Here is a man no one can trust - except his illuminist master whom he is hailing here.

Mr Sarkozy warned the new member states that France would block any further EU enlargement unless Warsaw and Prague knuckle under and do what they are told. "I will fight to ensure that EU membership does not exceed 27," he said.
The French President warned the Czechs that they would pay a price if Prague continues to grumble about ratifying the Treaty. "Our Czech friends will have the EU Presidency on Jan 1 it is very difficult to see them blocking a solution," he said. "If the Czechs dig in their heels they will start their presidency in great isolation." Lech Kaczynski's newfound skepticism of the Lisbon Treaty is yet another blow to the European Union in the wake of Ireland's 'No' vote.

Comment:This is all the more reason to block the Lisbon Treaty.
"Czech Deputy Premier Alexandr Vondra has rejected this as a "kind of a lie", adding to a growing chorus of criticism from European leaders on the issue.
According to one diplomat, if Sarkozy persists with his hard line, the only victim will in fact be Croatia. France is isolated on the issue".

Der Spiegel Online 02.07.2008: German papers warn that Brussels needs to recognize the growing sense of mistrust among EU citizens. The Times Online  9 July, 2008, agrees in the mistrust of  the entire political system. "As politics converges, a growing undercurrent of discontent can be heard. We should listen before it is too late"

Germany's highest court is also expected to review legal challenges to the reform treaty, and President Horst Köhler has said he would not sign it until the Federal Constitutional Court has issued its ruling. German papers on Wednesday assess the impact of these delays and doubts on the ratification process. Many are calling for Brussels to step back and listen to Europe's citizens.

The Austrian Social Democrats had demanded a referendum on the EU question
French President Nicolas Sarkozy is seriously mistaken when he suggests that the problem should be 'limited to the Irish.' The lack of acceptance of the EU lies much deeper than many European politicians would like to think. This is based on many different fears and on a lack of knowledge. However, it is also being encouraged by politicians who would like to blame Brussels for everything that goes wrong.

The center-right Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung writes
"Many voters mistrust these methods, and quite a few simply reject further integration. That may well be short-sighted but the referenda in France, the Netherlands and now Ireland have shown it to be a political fact.
Whether Lisbon fails or is saved in the end, one thing is certain: A public debate about the meaning and the goals of the EU is long overdue."

The left-leaning Die Tageszeitung writes
Ireland will not be isolated. The buck will simply be passed back to Brussels, where the helpless response will be: Take time to consider, enter into a dialogue with the citizens and go back to start the reform process from scratch."

The business daily Handelsblatt writes
"The euroskeptics are already celebrating the fact that the Lisbon Treaty is dead. That is nonsense. What is true is that risks of it failing are growing …"
"Some governments behave differently in Brussels than they do at home. No one likes to be the one to disagree at the meetings of the EU leaders. However, back home many realize that there is not much enthusiasm for the treaty. Ratification requires a lot of political energy. If this is lacking there is a great temptation to hide behind the delays in another EU state and hit harder on the brakes. That is why it would be a mistake to play down the threats by the Polish and Czech presidents not to ratify."

"The basic problem of the European unification process is that deeper integration, which is desired by governments and parliaments, weakens national statehood.

The left-leaning Berliner Zeitung writes
"By stubbornly pushing through of this process, Brussels risks hardening many Europeans' image of the EU: That it is something where 'those up there' force something on the ordinary people. Or that something is put to the vote repeatedly until the result suits the politicians." "The idea of a core Europe or a two-speed Europe is not at all the heresy that some make it out to be. It has long been reality: Many states do not participate in one of the key issues of European integration: the single currency. Has this damaged the EU? Another successful model of two speeds is the Schengen Agreement." " European politicians should stop acting as if there is no alternative to the Lisbon Treaty. … Those who want a future for the European Union have to stop trying to change the citizens. Instead they should change the policy."

Mr. Sarkozy ( l´UE , c´est moi!: “Do as you are told – or pay a heavy price.
Unfortunately, Mr Kaczynsky cannot be taken seriously. His eurosceptic statement ceased to exist after Nicolas Sarkozy had threatened him in a 40 min. telephone conversation – according to among others the AFP on July 4, 2008.!!! 
Besides, Kaczynsky did not have the support of his prime minister, Donald Tusk.

Our only hope besides the Irish is Czech president Vaclav KlausHe knows that the New World Order/the EUSSR  pose a terrible threat to our freedom. But can he all alone bear the  weight  of the EU dictatorship - abandoned by his cowardly or bribed colleagues?
Der Spiegel Online 02.07.2008
Czech President Vaclav Klaus has already said he thinks the treaty is "finished." The Czech Constitutional Court is currently assessing whether the charter is compatible with the national constitution.

How can we save our children from the stranglehold of the EU scoundrels, these New World Order conspirators against our freedom and democracy?
I think there is but one way: To spread the knowledge about nature of the EU dictatorship.
