- THE NETHERLANDS - The Dutch
will vote NO in the referendum on the EU treaty. It's even thought that
using electronic 'rigging' techniques - because there's no 'paper trail'
from the voting machines - has become 'to dangerous'. One of the TV polls
last night showed too big a difference: by a sixty-five percent NO votes,
and 25% YES votes.* The angry NO vote by the fed-up Dutch is based on bad
experiences of the past years with the growing 'Superstate', which speak
for themselves: they were promised a 'Great Europe without Borders' - with
the freedom to travel anywhere 'without needing a passport anymore'.
- The reality is, that we now in the Netherlands live in
an 'Apartheid-state', where we can get fined when we leave our house without
an ID card. ''On average a little more than 100 fines a day were issued
to people who could not produce identification in January. Since a new
law came into effect on News Year's Day  obliging everyone above
the age of 14 to carry ID, authorities have issued 3,300 fines, news agency
Novum reported. The fines amount to EUR 50 and EUR 25 for those aged 14
or 15.'' - Url.: http://tinyurl.com/8gujf
- The often malignant and corrupt 'politicians' in Brussels
promised 'One Big Europe', with - as one of the advantages - the 'Euro'
as the new currency. They were warned that 'live might become up to a half
percent more expensive'. In reality more dutch middle class people are
going bankrupt than ever, with a fast growing number of people complaining
that 'prices have doubled' and their economy is in shambles.
- People will vote NO too, because the same gangsters that
wrecked their economy, now again are shoving a 439 pages fine print 'blank
check' under their noses, urging them to sign again. Threatening with everything
negative possible from staggering unemployment figures to 'black outs',
and even in a TV message with the Holocaust, done by the despicable dutch
neocons conservative party VVD. ('Vereniging Van Dieven') - Url.: http://tinyurl.com/cyskr
- PEOPLE ARE NOT CLEVER ENOUGH?
- The neocon Dutch government's investigation of the complaints
- with their own 'commissions' of course - never found any fault. 'People
are not clever enough' - as was said by Dutch ministers - 'to understand
the exchange rates.' Apparently they themselves don't either: according
to high ranking financial specialists, the Dutch Guilder currency was 'sold
out' ten percent below it's net worth, enlarging the economical disaster
for the taxpayers and enriching 'The Banks of London'. An investigation
by the Dutch weekly HP/De Tijd - published exactly two years ago, under
the cover title "The Euro Disaster" - confirmed by comparing
the cost of living 'before' and 'after' the introduction of the Euro, that
the overall cost of living at least had gone up with forty-nine-dot-one
- No wonder the Dutch are (finally) sharpening their knives,
and the people working for the multinationals 'managing' Holland - day
and night drowned the country in a tsunami of lies; a false ticker tape
parade of YES! EU-propaganda. Paid by the taxpayers of course, who are
apparently seeing through the country-wide fog of lies. But even in the
official brochures the word 'taxes' is left out; to avoid making people
think about who's paying the crook's bills. The Dutch seem not to be willing
to accept anymore that Holland is #6 of the richest countries in the world,
while they - after Sweden - pay the highest taxes in the world, getting
less and less in return, of the 6 months a year they 'tax-work' for the
'government'. A poll published two weeks ago, showed nineteen percent (19)
favorable towards the neocon 'government' with an overwhelming eighty-one
(81) percent dumping PM Balkenende and his hypocritical 'christian' neocons.
- The many reasons why the new 'Treaty for a European Constitution'
is very undemocratic and dangerous to peoples lives and well being, is
very well shown in this excellent summing up - http://tinyurl.com/cwnyk
- with all the important points why nobody ever should sign this blank
- It has however nothing to do with 'left' or 'right':
humanity is divided in the groups 'givers' and 'takers'. The US/Israeli
'neocons' are the worst exponents of the 'takers'. Victims of their 'War
of Terror' are all the 'givers'. The 'no opinion' ignorant people too,
because they're paying without understanding, or being able to comprehend
- MILITARIZATION - SECRET AGREEMENTS AND NO UNITED NATIONS
- There is a series of top secret agreements between the
European Union Council, the United States, Israel and different defense
forces and intelligence services, which the EU voters - and many times
not even their members of parliament - are allowed to see or hear about.
But pay for the secret militarization and infringements on their 'freedoms'
the misled taxpayer must.
- Anthony Coughlan, the Secretary of the 'EU Research and
Information Centre' writes in his excellent article* on the NO to the EU,
about the militarization of the EU, as part of the US neocon Empire, it
is understood. "It militarizes the EU", Coughlan rightfully writes:
"The Constitution points to the end of the formal military neutrality
of Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, Austria and Malta by replacing the 'Nice Treaty'
provision that the progressive framing of a common defense policy "MIGHT
lead to a common defense, SHOULD the European Council so decide"
with the provision in the Constitution that it "WILL lead to a common
defense, WHEN the European Council, acting unanimously, so decides "(Art.I-41).
- That decision is clearly only a matter of time. The same
Article requires all Member States "to make civilian and military
capabilities available to the Union for the implementation of the common
security and defense policy"
- THE CONSTITUTION PERMITS EU MILITARY OPERATIONS TO TAKE
PLACE WITHOUT A UN CHARTER MANDATE.
- Article I-16 gives the EU the power to conduct a common
foreign and security policy covering "all areas of foreign policy
and all questions relating to the Union's security, including the progressive
framing of a common defense policy that might lead to a common defense".
The same Article places Member Statesunder an explicit constitutional obligation
to refrain from following an independent foreign policy if that clashes
with the EU one: "Member States shall actively and unreservedly support
the Union's common foreign and security policy in a spirit of loyalty and
mutual solidarity and shall comply with the Union's action in this area.
They shall refrain from action contrary to the Union's interests or likely
to impair its effectiveness." [ ]
- Tony Bunyan, editor of the excellent 'Statewatch', in
an earlier comment: "This is another instance of secret policy making.
European and national parliaments should be consulted and the texts made
public so that there can be a debate as to their content and consequences.
Putting these agreements in place is not just about exchanging classified
documents, it is also about the construction of a security regime for future
cooperation on defense, foreign policy and justice and home affairs between
the EU, non-EU states and international organizations. It is about tying
in the acceding states and others into the aims and objectives of the EU-NATO-USA
politico military axis." [ ]
- With other words: the EU army, with it's 'Rapid Deployment
Forces', the US SSB, ('Special CIA Forces' 'Rendering' - http://tinyurl.com/89dbf)
and NATO troops - all under American so called NATO command in reality
- will be able to fight wars without asking again for a UN resolution or
a mandate of the Security Council of the United Nations.

- The Neocon Dream come true: their 'European Province'
of the US Empire striking at will and 'covering' legal or illegal actions
without any United Nations approval nor limits. Thanks to everyday's 'home
made laws' - like the EU Treaty must become - there will - according to
the neocons - be No More Warcriminals!
- The Dutch have a proverb: 'the brutal people have
- half the world, and try to get the rest.'
- That's a very good reason to say NO!
