One of Europe’s greatest politicians is Nigel Farage, leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party. Here he gives a perceptive interview - not to the appalling, pro EU Biased Broadcasting Corporation – the rotten-to-the-core BBC- but to Russian TV! Yes, you are more likely to get the truth there than on most western media, which likes to pretend UKIP doesn’t exist. Incidentally, my view that Europe will go seeking a new strong man is mine, not necessarily Nigel's!
Here is a link to Nigel’s comments and clips-I especially like his comment on the pathetic little squit Herman Van Rompuy once a predictably anonymous Belgian Prime minister and now rejoicing in the meaningless title: President of the Council of the European Union. Here’s what Nigel says- wonderful! http://dailyreckoning.com/nigel-farage-on-the-fall-of-europe-and-the-parallels-for-the-us/
As Nigel points out, the EU was set up to control the Germans and make us love each other, rather than killing each other. Now, however, it is making us hate each other as small, broke southern countries face hardship and are increasingly resentful of Germany bossing them around. When Germany’s Angela Merkel was in Greece recently she was greeted by demonstrators dressed as Nazis.
Here’s how my favorite financial newsletter The Daily Reckoning summed it up:" Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party, is a very outspoken advocate of small-to-no government, which makes him a very outspoken critic of the European Union. Farage is not an anarchist, but he would like to see the European Union wither up and blow away so that the nations of Europe could reclaim their political and economic sovereignty.
Late last week, Farage sat down with Lauren Lyster, the witty and engaging anchor of Russian TV’s Capital Account, to discuss his anti-eurozone perspective. (One of your editor’s loved it; the other, not so much). As they launch into the interview, Lyster notes that Farage’s comments and interviews often “go viral” on the Internet. The reason is obvious, she says. “There’s a bull market for the truth. There’s a bull market for getting past the B.S. and the rhetoric.”
Farage clearly delivers a perspective that “gets past the B.S.,” but not without utilizing his own brand of rhetoric.
“One of the ironies of the European project,” Farage remarked last time we featured his comments in the Daily Reckoning, “is that this project that was set up to make us all love each other is actually beginning to make us hate each other... Far from Europe coming together, Europe is being torn apart and we are risking stirring up the very kind of nationalisms that the project was supposed to stop in the first place.”
Alan adds: The logical conclusion of this disaster, which is seeing ever-increasing street demonstrations across Europe, is that Europe will go looking for another "strong man" to replace the Von Rompuys of this world, who are barely able to run a bath, let alone a continent.The coming Greater Depression, which I have been forecasting for six years (see and buy our book, Goodbye America, Goodbye Britain ) will lead to such despair that democracy - such as it is in the EU - will soon be abandoned. The motto of the EU "project," as they term it, is "ever closer union." So, far from falling apart, we are likely to get a more centralised fiscal andpolitical union, with weak countries giving up what remains of their independence.
They will get their strong man. The Bible calls him Antichrist.....Soon he will rule the world as head of the coming One World Government. I am talking about it this week at the East Coast Prophecy Conference in Gettysburg, where I am writing this comment. Churches who want to know more about how Bible prophecy is being fulfilled in the daily headlines can invite me to speak: I am in Texas in January and June, 2013. Contact me at email@example.com
