Yanis Varoufakis Treason Threat is A Shocking Euro Development

Yanis Varoufakis, Treason I have been familiar with the ways of the European Union for many years, and I thought myself impervious to surprise at the extraordinary way in which Brussels imposes its will, with plain defiance of democracy and utter contempt for the opinions (and frequently the well-being) of the people. Does it not routinely ignore the results of referenda, and tell the poor benighted voters that they must go away and vote again, until they get the right answer? Did it not gloss over the French and Dutch NO votes on the ill-fated European Constitution, and use the disreputable device of re-naming the Constitution a “Treaty”, so skirting the need for new referenda (except in Ireland)? Has it not twice contrived the removal of democratically elected Prime Ministers (in Greece and Italy) and replaced them with compliant EU apparatchiks? But even so I was shocked — genuinely shocked — to read that

Pope Francis Ushers in Era of Vatican Austerity

Pope Francis holds a crucifix as he lead the Easter vigil mass in Saint Peter's basilica at the Vatican The pontificate of Pope Francis with his emphasis on poverty has resulted in a new tone of austerity in Vatican circles, with clerics avoiding any show of ostentation in favor of a new sobriety in dress, transportation and manners. Francis has put aside official Vatican limousines, wears plain black shoes instead of soft red loafers and sits down to common meals with priests and other clerics in the cafeteria of the Casa Santa Marta, the Vatican residence where he is living. His Vatican spending cuts have affected almost everyone, and even the office in charge of naming saints has been told to lower expenses. A shopkeeper named Luciano Ghezzi who sells clerical wear says that styles have definitely changed in the era of Pope Francis. When the Pope tones down his own dress, he says, “it is natural that everything around him takes on a more sober tone.” “I know

The Sun Tacks Left: Tory Mayor Candidate Shouldn’t Speak to UK’s Oldest Conservative Group

sun The Sun newspaper, hardly known for its ideological integrity, appears to have tacked left today, attacking Conservative Mayoral Candidate Zac Goldsmith for appealing to right wing activists who support the oldest Conservative think tank in Britain. The Bow Group, which is hosting Goldsmith later this month, is backed by the few remaining conservatives in Britain – and furiously opposed by the liberal, Cameroons of the “modern” Conservative Party. Breitbart London understands that the Conservative Party itself has used its vast resources to pursue the Bow Group, its spokespeople, and its officers both legally, and through attacks in the media – raising more questions about the party’s commitment to free speech and dissent from within. Now, the Sun, which almost hysterically backed David Cameron at the May 2015 general election, has weighed into the fight, joining the BBC, the Spectator Magazine, and the Guido Fawkes blog in doing so. There are

Levin: We Need ‘A Real, New Civil Rights Movement’

Screenshot Talk radio host and author of “Plunder and Deceit,” Mark Levin called for “a real, new Civil Rights movement” “where we advance liberty, prosperity, private property rights, capitalism, American sovereignty, and individual sovereignty” on Monday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel. Levin declared, “The Liberty Amendments are there and people should continue to press for a convention of the states, bottom-up. I talk grassroots all the time. We believe in federalism. We believe in the 10th Amendment, Washington is not going to correct the design that he created. Obama’s on the loose. Congress is on the loose. The courts are on the loose. And Article V, the convention of the states, is what the framers gave us to fix that. What I’ve done here is I say, ‘You know, young people, you need to stir yourselves, you need to inform yourselves. Every poll shows that you resist authority. Every poll

Krauthammer: ‘Teflon Don’ Trump Has Shown He’s ‘Durable’

Screenshot Columnist Charles Krauthammer argued that “Teflon Don” Donald Trump has show “he’s going to be a durable candidate” on Monday’s “O’Reilly Factor” on the Fox News Channel. Krauthammer said of Trump’s debate strategy, “I would think from his point of view, when you have the kind of lead he does, and the others have no particular incentive to attack you, because it might hurt the two of you, and leave the rest of the field unmolested, you’ve got a pretty good shot at just playing statesman and being quiet. And I don’t see Trump coming in, throwing around insults. But what I do see, is maybe one of the candidates on the lower rung, who’s got a lot less to lose, and more to gain might take a shot at Trump.” He added that Rand Paul could be that candidate, and “would have been” Rick Perry, but he probably won’t
