The Propaganda War: Quotations and Comments | UK Independence Day 23 June 2016 | Further Articles, Quotations, and Comments on the EU
"The German people had actually voted the Austrian demagogue into the office of Chancellor. What could [Jean] Monnet learn from this. What he learned stayed with him for the rest of his life and stays with us today in the EU. ... democracy must go. It could not be the governmental system of the new Utopia. ... Instead there would be a new system: government by an enlightened elite of bureaucrats. The hoi polloi (you and me) were simply too dim, too emotional, too uneducated to be safely allowed to choose their governments..."
EU Referendum: Shafting the Commonwealth (01 June 2016)
"The history of the UK's membership of the EU is the history of the UK ... on its Commonwealth family (pardon me for the language). Here's one man from a fine member of the Commonwealth family, New Zealand, whose life deserves a mention. It does sadden me somewhat to contemplate the extent to which the UK's Political Class drools over the prospect of favouring our country's relationship with an unelected, unaccountable, kleptocratic autocracy over our relationship with the British Commonwealth..."
The New Totalitarian Age (31 May 2016)
"I've been trying for a while to pin down exactly what the EU is. The planning and deviousness of the EU, over many years, has been an act of genius ... Socialist, Marxist, Fascist or Totalitarian. I've heard the EU called all of these things. ... they're all different regimes that have used Totalitarianism as a tool. The first question to ask then: is the EU Totalitarian? Wherever you seek academic reference to Totalitarianism there are always between five to seven distinct characteristics that are identified:..."
Can You Guess the EU Interviewee? (20 May 2016)
"Responsible cycling being all the fashion, I'm partly reproducing here what I wrote almost four years ago. When you get to the end you'll know why..."
Meet the Financiers of the 'Brussels EU' (16 May 2016)
"From the beginning, one of the main financiers of the 'Brussels EU' was the West German Government. On April 24, 1964, the key architects of the 'Brussels EU' - all of them active members of the IG Farben/Nazi coalition during WWII (IG Farben supplied the Zyklon B for the gas chambers) - met at the 'Brussels EU' headquarters to stake their claims on the future of the European continent..."
Merkel Is Neither Napoleon Nor Hitler - Not Exactly (16 May 2016)
"Boris Johnson ... has committed a sin that never goes unpunished in today's politics. He displayed some knowledge of history and common sense. Not much, mind you - he merely said something any average schoolboy knew when I was young: that the EEC/EU isn't the first attempt to force Europe into a single state. Following the example set by the Roman Empire, quite a few individuals, most of them unsavoury, have tried to recreate what they erroneously saw as the ideal towards which to strive. The Holy Roman Empire ... was one such attempt ... Another attempt ... was that by the Soviets ... So off with Boris's head, along with the heads of those who have read a history book or two and learned to draw legitimate parallels. As Descartes once said, all knowledge comes from comparing two or more things. Boris did just that..."
Origins of the EU's Communautairism (01 May 2016)
"The philosophy behind the EU is simple. It is called 'the Third Way'. The Third Way, as proposed originally in Corporate Fascism by Mussolini and the Fabian Society, endorsed by T. Blair and others in many speeches, is at the heart of the EU. It grew out of Fabian Socialism as a route to global governance. The leading Fabians, like H.G. Wells, were clear both in its objectives and the secretive route it would take to reach them..."
"As so often when the BBC strays from honest reporting into propaganda, the key to Robinson's account lay not just in what he did say but even more in what got left out. In fact, much of it was based on a longer and much more balanced series made for the BBC 20 years ago, The Poisoned Chalice..."
Nine Deceptions in Our History with the EU (27 February 2016)
"The key to understanding the unique system of government known as the 'European Union' is that everything about it is based on smoke and mirrors, with nothing ever being quite what it is pretending to be. Of this, the strange little pseudo-deal stitched up between David Cameron and his 27 colleagues is only yet another example..."
The EU Referendum is Our Waterloo (19 June 2015)
"18th June 2015, the Fields of Waterloo, on the bi-century of the great event. I caught the train from Brussels/Luxembourg out to Waterloo and a taxi to the battlefield. I was there by 9am. ... What happened at Waterloo was that Britain and her allies overcame the maniac who wanted to build a United States of Europe. When I think of the British Guards with their Dutch colleagues in the hell of Hougoumont, outnumbered, and being battered by heavy artillery, I realise that the upcoming referendum is our Hougoumont..."
"In joining all those other oldies telling us how they voted in the last EU referendum 40 years ago, I confess that, like many others, I voted 'Yes' because I couldn't support the two most prominent 'No' campaigners, the Right-winger Enoch Powell and the Left-winger Tony Benn. Only years later, when I co-authored an exhaustively researched book on the history of the 'European project', did I realise that on this issue at least they had both been absolutely right..."
How Harold Wilson Was Warned Europe Threatened British Democracy (27 August 2014)
"Britain's membership of the European Community presented a 'gross infringement of sovereignty' and a 'serious attack on Parliamentary democracy', Cabinet ministers warned [Mr Wilson three months before the 1975 referendum] ... the only referendum on Brussels given to the public, newly uncovered papers reveal..."
"This article highlights the birth place of the 'Brussels EU' on the drawing boards of the Nazi/IG Farben-coalition for a post-war Europe under their control. ... The corporate preparations for World War II started as early as 1925, when Bayer, BASF, Hoechst and other German multinationals formed a cartel called 'IG Farben Industry'. The declared goal of this cartel was to obtain control of the global markets in the key industrial sectors of chemistry, pharmaceuticals and petrochemicals. ... the ultimate goal was to create and dominate a 'European Market' from Lisbon to Sofia..."
Vladimir Bukovsky, 70, is one of the most famous ex-political prisoners of the former Soviet Union. In total he spent twelve years of internment, including prisons, labour camps and psychiatric hospitals, ... In 2007 he co-authored with Pavel Stroilov EUSSR: The Soviet Roots of European Integration in which he constructs, on the basis of documents copied from the Soviet archives in 1992, plans to transform the EU into a Union of Socialist Republics in all identical to the former Soviet Union..."
The Origins of the EU From Paris in 1870 to Berlin in 1942 to Berlin in 1964 (13 November 2012)
"In 1938 a group of German bureaucrats began to develop ... ideas ... on how Europe should be governed. By 1942 they were confident that they were about to win the European War. They held a conference in Berlin on how they were going to run Europe after the final victory. The name of this meeting was Europaische WirtschaftsGemeinsschaft (EWG) - the European Economic Community or EEC ... In 1945 the German Reich hit the buffers leaving the way open for [Jean] Monnet's alternative federal Europe..."
A Reunited Europe? No, Just an Even Bigger Prison Camp (09 May 2004)
"How sad it was to watch as so many countries, free for a season, were marched into the prison camp of ex-nations which the EU is fast becoming. For me, it was especially upsetting to see the Czechs, Poles and Lithuanians - whose struggles against Soviet domination I witnessed at first hand - meekly taking the yoke of Brussels..."
Joseph Goebbels: The Europe of the Future (11 September 1940)
"At the moment when British power is collapsing we have the opportunity to reorganize Europe on principles corresponding to the social, economic and technical possibilities of the twentieth century. ... Our great nation with its large population, ... will in practice take over the leadership of Europe. There are no two ways about that..."
A New Bill of Rights - a Post-Brexit Update (25 June 2016)
"Our country has a long tradition of measures introduced to limit the power of rulers; to prevent their continuation of abuses and exploitations, and to grant rights and protections to the people; the most famous include Magna Carta (1215), the Petition of Right (1628), the Habeas Corpus Act (1679), the Bill of Rights (1689)..."
The Uniqueness of the Magna Carta (13 June 2015)
"This year marks the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta. For many ... the anniversary represents 'an event of truly planetary significance'. A time when the English people rose up against Norman tyranny to reestablish the freedoms and liberties of their Anglo-Saxon forefathers. A moment that would eventually guarantee the rights of all 'freeborn Englishmen' from the tyranny of absolute and arbitrary rule. An event that, up until the last century, was celebrated as reminder that the rights of the individual were superior to the needs of the state and that no man, not even a king, was above the law..."
The Thirty Nine Articles of Religion (1563/1571)

The following is an extended extract from Battle for the Very Soul of Britain
"Nine hundred and fifty years ago, between two hillocks at Hastings, an Anglo-Saxon king took an arrow in his eye and England surrendered her independence. That was our last - should I say most recent? - defeat on home soil. King Harold's forces fought valiantly but they had been exhausted by two earlier battles ... A shrewd and ruthless Frenchman, Guillaume of Normandy, seized power and London's Witan parliament was never heard of again. ...
"I have been contemplating poor King Harold a fair amount recently. ... As a schoolboy I visited the northern French town of Bayeux to see [the] tapestry and remember a sting of sorrow as I saw the needlework images of vanquished Anglo-Saxons. It was always the same when I read history yarns about British chieftain Caractacus fighting the Romans on his hilltop and later being paraded in Rome as a chained captive; or gallant ... Boadicea, Queen of the Iceni tribe, charging towards the Roman lines in her chariot ... In such accounts, I always rooted for the Brits. ... I always wanted the dwellers of our dank and foggy, sea-set isle to seize the day. Was it a nascent sketchwriter's innate bias or inherited love of country from my fiercely patriotic parents? Was that love wrong? Is that love wrong? I still feel that way.
"The likes of Mr Cameron and his fellow Europhiles ... presumably feel something different when they look at the Bayeux tapestry. I suppose they experience a glow of quiet satisfaction that William and his forces of European integration over came the locals. ... A deep-rooted part of me rebels against that. ... I grieve for the freedoms that were squashed. And I feel just the same when I look at an castle built by English lords to crush dissent in Scottish and Welsh territory. My sympathies lie with the invaded. ...
"Hereward the Wake [a] Lincolnshire freeman ... had his lands taken by the Normans and decided to do something about it. For a few years after 1066, Hereward and his small army operated out of the Cambridgeshire town of Ely, then an island. They were beaten only after a treacherous monk showed the Normans one of the secret paths to Ely through the Fenland marshes. ... Almost a millennium after the event, I feel a lively indignation on Hereward's behalf. What a cur that monk was to betray him. What if Hereward had continued to oppose William? Could he have combined with the still unconquered Celts and Northumbrians to drive out the 'ingengas'? Or was Norman rule as inevitable as supporters of the EU now say their governing body is inevitable? As for that treacherous monk, was he a sort of Roland Rudd of his day ... the City PR smoothie pulling strings for the Remain camp? ...
"My support for Hereward may reflect a surfeit of foolish romanticism. But it may also echo enduring truths about the importance of self-determination and of remaining true to one's ancestral heritage. For what are we if we deny the past? What is the point of being British if we are not able to say who governs us? And let there be no doubt: if we vote to stay ion the EU, we will not be able to dislodge the elite that runs Brussels. They will be impervious to our democratic disapproval. They will be as safe as William and his shaven-headed Normans were in their mighty castle keeps. ...
"The Leave campaign ... has urged voters to quit the EU for a range of reasons ... Hereward the Wake ... would have heard Vote Leave talk of how we must 'take control' and would surely have thought 'I don't really want control - I want liberty.' ...
"It would obviously be good for us to retrieve national control of trade decisions, tax matters, ... immigration policy ... But where is the optimism in Leave's campaign? Where is the appeal to something more positive, more human, more ardent? The hearts of Hereeward the Wake and his 'green men' would have burned for something greater; something more essential. You could call it self-determination or independence but it is basically the right to plant your feet on the clifftops of Kent, raise your eyes to the cloud-scudding sky, and relish your ancient liberty as a free-born Briton. ...
"I think of my grandfathers. One was wounded three times on the Western Front in World War I. The other landed in Normandy - Normandy! - just before D-Day to clear the beaches of mines. They fought for king and country, yes, but they fought most of all for an idea: freedom. The days of ancestral sword and scramasax may have passed but that powerful notion of liberty, the spirit of British dissent which flared so wonderfully in the East Anglian fens 950 years ago, must never be allowed to die. Without it, we would be an island without pride, an island shorn of soul"

The following is an extended extract from Freenations
"Free nations, like free people, are the condition for democracy, free trade and international peace. No system based on freedom under the law and majority votes in elections can exist without a common language, history, [and] religion which form the basis of the law and a predominant culture to which immigrants must gradually assimilate. Such are the achievements of the Nation States. Supranational States achieve the opposite - war, internal conflict, economic failure, financial collapse and social decay, as the USSR, Nazi Europe and the EU today so clearly demonstrate. ...
"The great wars of the 20th century were fought to free the nation states from the hegemony of imperial powers, from fascism and from communism. The years of general peace after 1945 coincided with the rapid growth in the number of nation states, and the UN Convention on Civil and Political Rights of 1966 affirmed the rights of all peoples to self determination. But gradually over the last 50 years the power of supranational government (the EU being the most aggressive) and multinational corporations frustrated and overturned the will of voters and the power of the consumer. They formed that combination of corporate and State power that has always destroyed democracy and nationhood and has always been associated with the rise of fascism ad German imperialism in Europe.
"From the Single European Act of 1986 and the Maastricht Treaty of 1992, conflict and wars, ethnic cleansing, the break up of nations and inter-nation tensions have risen in Europe. The results of the wars which freed the nations have been reversed with the political map of Europe now looking remarkably like 1914 and the height of Nazi hegemony in 1941. The EU has now extended further East than even Hitler was able to venture as recent agreements between the EU and Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova testify. Those agreements - like the early trade agreements of the European Common Market - have already required constitutional surrender by those nations and now there is built by German Europe from the West something akin to the Russian Europe which Stalin built from the East. ...
"Corporatism and Fascism are cross party. They combine the left, the right, and in particular the unthinking centre. ... Therefore the solution is cross party. ...
"Nationism [describes] the (non-nationalistic) concept of the democratic sovereignty of nations trading and co-operating peacefully with other nations. Self-governing and democratic at home and free trading and cooperating abroad, there is nothing aggressive about the nation state.
"NATIONISM: (a) democratic people, (b) equality of nations, (c) cultural homogeneity to ensure democracy, (d) free movement of goods and capital, (e) diffused political and economic power, (f) stable money for people to save.
"NATIONALISM: (a) political State power over other nations, (b) multicultural imperial supranational power, (c) controlled trade to ensure political control, (d) central political and corporate control, (e) inflation for the State to reduce its debt"

"These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood. And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth" (Genesis 10:32-11:9).
