In October 2010, British Independent Party MEP Nigel Farage lit into
European Union president Herman van Rompuy on the floor of the
EU parliament. Van Rompuy was Belgium's Prime Minister when he
he was named President of the EU Council. Van Rompuy was
picked by the overlords of the New World Order because he
believes the "...rising tide of nationalism is the EU's biggest enemy."

The United States, like Europe five decades ago, is being led like a monkey on a chain into a western hemisphere government-of-the-Americas where it will lose its national identity and finally, its sovereignty. With its loss of identity will come a new multinational currency styled after the failed Euro, a new standard of law which will make US law subservient to international law and place the US Supreme Court one step below the World Court, which will become the final arbitrator of all legal disputes. With international law overriding our laws governing the migration of peoples from the third world to the population-depleted industrial world, we will discover we no longer possess the legal authority to police and seal our own borders.

America needs to wake up—very quickly—and take a close, realistic look at the "new democracy" of Europe. The media makes it appear like its a strong, content, political and economic union that is dwarfing the other industrial nations. But under the facade of what appears to be freedom, a form of soft totalitarianism is taking shape. When it "sets" and hardens, it will be the same old totalitarianism the world experienced every time the lords of the manor house were allowed to enslave the working class (whether they were shackled with a slave's collar or by slave wages). Only, this time, it will be global. And the weakest nations of Europe will have conquered the mightiest nations on Earth.

On Nov. 10, 2010 when EU Council president Herman van Rompuy delivered his State of Europe speech in Berlin he linked the current European hostility to the EU, and the notion that countries who joined the EU federation could leave, to a wave of aggressive nationalism. "We have to fight the danger of a new Euroskepticism," he said. "This is no longer the monopoly of a few countries. In every member state there are people who believe their country can survive alone in the globalized world. It is more than an illusion. It is a lie." The biggest enemy of the European Union, he told his Berlin audience, is the rising tide of nationalism in Europe. Euroskepticism, he told his audience, leads to war. Van Rompuy's statement came less than a week after British Prime Minister David Cameron admitted he was a Euroskeptic after he fought, and lost, a grueling battle to block a sharp increase in the EU budget at a time when every nation on Earth is feeling the hard times most working class Americans are now feeling.

When MEP Nigel Farage attacked Rompuy on Feb. 26, 2010, the MEP told the EU president that he had the charisma of a "damp rag" and the look of a "low-grade bank clerk," just before he said, "I have no doubt that it is your intention to be the quiet assassin of European democracy and of the European nation states. You appear to have a loathing for the very concept of the existence of the nation states. Perhaps that is because you come from Belgium, which of course is pretty much a non-country."

The video (above) came from a speech made on October 29. Farage was, once again, in his best form when he told Rompuy that after a year in office Rompuy should be the pinup boy for the Euroskeptic Movement. Farage noted "...in desperation to preserve their dream of a unified world, they want to remove any remaining traces of democracy from the system. And," he continued, "it's pretty clear that none of you have learned anything."

Nor, unfortunately, have the American people. It's time all of us realize that the people we elect feel they owe their loyally to us on only one day every two years. The rest of the time, they are obligated to those who fill their campaign war chests with legal bribes. Until the American people challenge the right of politicians to legalize bribery—in any amount—in the name of campaign contributions, we will continue to have governments run by men like George Soros, David Rockefeller and politicians—and legislation—controlled by special interest groups. (That's how you get politicians like Nancy Pelosi who can stand before Congress and say, "We need to hurry up and vote for this legislation so we can find out what's in it." Congress not only did not write it, they were clueless what was in it. One of the things buried deep inside those thousand-plus pages was a provision that gives the Executive Branch increased authority to regulate those who sell gold and silver. Uncle Sam now has the right to harass those companies that sell you gold and silver coins. The government does not want you to have a safe haven monetary source, nor do they want you stockpiling food [a "crime" they now call "hoarding."] When government collapses the economy they need everyone to panic in fear as they did in 1933. That way, when government offers the "cure," as Adolph Hitler did in 1934, no one will resist the surrender of liberty for a morsel of food and shelter for their families.)

Political bribes need to be criminalized. All of them, regardless of the amount. And, all parties to the attempt to bribe a politician: the politician who accepts the bribe, the lobbyist or special interest group that offers it, and the corporation heads and directors of the companies proffering the money, all need to go to prison. Constitutionally, political bribery is the attempted theft of a nation. Other than treason, there is no more serious crime. The penalty needs to be just as severe. So severe, in fact, that those who engage in it should not be eligible for a presidential or gubernatorial pardon, nor early parole. Judges, in this instance, must lose the right to mitigate the sentence. Do that, and sealing the borders will become an easy task. And even better, earmarks and other raids on the billfold in your pants pockets, or the purse you carry, will end overnight.
