UN propaganda asset Angelina Jolie treks to Syrian refugee camp

CFR member, United Nations propaganda asset and “special envoy” Angelina Jolie has been sent to Jordan to bring attention to the squalid conditions at the Zaatari refugee camp.

“UNHCR spokesman Ali Bebe says the Hollywood star arrived Monday and is to visit Jordan’s first tent city for Syrian refugees on Tuesday morning,” the Associated Press reports.

Jolie will be accompanied by U.N. refugee chief Antonio Guterres and Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh. Guterres is a former prime minister of Portugal and leading member of the Socialist International and a Bilderberg attendee.

Zaatari is one of a number of Syrian refugee camps in the Jordanian desert. The U.S. and its asset run by the CIA and Britain’s MI6, the Free Syrian Army (FSA), recruit fighters from the camps for the ongoing effort to depose Bashar al-Assad and install a more globalist friendly entity in Syria.

“Jordan has rejected several requests by the Assad government for the extradition of [Syrian government] defectors and has allowed entry to hundreds of Syrian rebels who move freely around the country,” the Times of Israel reported in August. Continue reading

Europe’s scorched-earth policies have begun in earnest. The inherent flaws of monetary union have created a crisis of such gravity that EU leaders now feel authorized to topple two elected governments.

As I long feared, the flood of cheap credit into Southern Europe and the slow death of Club Med industry by currency asphyxiation have together created such a dangerous situation for world finance that informed opinion is willing to turn a blind eye to EU sovereign trespass. Some even applaud.

The Greeks were ordered to drop their referendum on measures that reduce their country to a sort of Manchukuo, with EU commissars “on the ground”, installed in each ministry, drawing up lists of state assets to be liquidated to pay foreign creditors.

Europe had the monetary and fiscal means to contain the EMU debt crisis long enough for Greeks to give or withhold their crucial assent to this ultimatum in December.

It chose – under German-Dutch pressure – not deploy those means. Instead it forced Greece to capitulate by cutting off an agreed loan payment.

In Italy, the European Central Bank has engineered the downfall of Silvio Berlusconi by playing the bond markets, switching purchases on and off to enforce compliance with its written dictates (“La Lettera”), and ultimately allowing 10-year yields to spike to 7.45pc to drive him out.

Europe’s president Herman Van Rompuy swooped in to Rome to clinch the Putsch. “Italy needs reforms not elections,” he said.

We are not that far from use of EU judicial coercion, and then EU police power, and ultimately EU “border troops” – for those old enough to remember Soviet methods of fraternal assistance.

Chancellor Angela Merkel tells us that peace in Europe can no longer be taken for granted, and she is right. Her own Gothic actions and her inflexible imposition of 1930s Gold Standard contraction and debt-deflation on Southern Europe is itself preparing the ground for Europe’s civil war (hopefully pacific), a rebellion by the South against the North.
