Martin Armstrong Warns EU Just Declared US Is The New Enemy

The European Union’s chief BREXIT negotiator, Guy Verhofstadt, told Reuters that Donald Trump is part of a three-pronged attempt to undermine the European Union.

The other two threats were from radicalized Islam and from Russian President Vladimir Putin, who Verhofstadt said was also working against the progress of the EU project.

 

"We have a third front, for the moment, undermining the European Union, and it is Donald Trump," Verhofstadt said in a speech at the Chatham House think-tank.

 

"Trump spoke very favorably of the fact that also other countries will want to break away from the European Union, and that he hoped for a disintegration of the European Union."

 

Verhofstadt served for nine years as prime minister of Belgium, and has served in the European Parliament since 2009.

 

He said that the European Union had severe problems, saying it was in a "poly-crisis", but nevertheless argued that the solution was for greater co-operation between states.

 

"A disintegration of the Union would be a disaster ... not only for Europe but also I think for our allies and for the world."

His comments reflect just how deranged the EU politicians really are for they will accept no blame whatsoever for any of their own policies that are dictatorial in nature and have sought from the start to federalize Europe while denying that was their goal all along.

Verhofstadt told Reuters that the other two threats were radicalized Islam, which them themselves opened their own borders to accept with open-arms, and from Russian President Vladimir Putin, who just said that Europe should stay together. Putin even warned that the EU would not be a global player as is.

Verhofstadt actually claimed that all three parties were working against the progress of the EU project. The EU is doomed and their own refusal to address the autocratic anti-democratic policies have sealed their fate. It was the USA that encouraged the formation of the Euro – NOT the political surrender of sovereignty of all members to Brussels.

This is the problem. The EU is blaming everyone but itself for its failures. That means they are incapable of preventing the collapse since they are in total denial that there is a problem. The deliberatly established a system whereby the European people CANNOT vote to change any politician since they do not stand for election. Draghi has engaged in QE since 2008. It has failed for 8 years. But no European can get rid of him at the polls. That means the ONLY was to bring about change is to exit the EU. Verhofstadt cannot bring himself to look in the mirror. We warned this would be the outcome of the EU project back in 1996 for its was designed knowing they wanted federalize Europe while denying that was their motive.

We warned about the rise and fall of the Euro back in 2011. We warned that the Euro would fail and provided the Hamiltonian Model as the answer to save Europe. The Committee establishing the Euro attended our World Economic Conference in London. We have had direct contact, yet it has gone in one ear and our the other. It is easier to blame others than admit a huge mistake they made all by themselves. Meanwhile, European politicians are deranged and believe they could win trade war against the USA because of its strong economy? Not really sure what world these people are in but it does not seem to be connected to Earth.

The biggest risk to the EU is the EU itself and it's total inability to correct its own structural flaws.

The failure to renegotiate with David Cameron is all the evidence you need that the project is nothing but an octopus drunk on power. EU doesn't care about anyones grievances.

With Verhofstadt as chief EU negotiator on Brexit, that will quite a short discussion? It would spice things up a bit and we could all at least have a bit of fun, if Nigel Farage (his nemesis) were appointed chief Brexit negotiator for the UK.

Yes, these Europrats in their Brussels echo chamber are completely delusional. And of course they have never paid any respect to real democracy and couldn't give a shit about the peoples of Europe, only themselves and their unelected positions of "power". It's over Guys, there are adults in the room now.

With fourth prong of Brexit, fifth in France, sixth in Netherlands, seventh in Italy, eight in Orban's Hungary, ninth in Poland and, last but not least, tenth in Greece... too many prongs in Verhofstadt's ass.

Verhofstadt busy with resuscitation of the European corpse.

The biggest risk to ALL governments at this point is the predominance of psychopaths. Psychopaths are natural destroyers. Nothing is going to get better until power is taken away from the clinical psychopaths. One way to begin doing that is to split big, cancerous governments into smaller, independent pieces.

New ZHers need to get it into their heads that there is a subspecies that lives among us but is not like us. They see us as 'their' livestock.

Political Ponerology:  A Science on the Nature of Evil Adjusted for Political Purposes

"If the many managerial positions are assumed by individuals deprived of sufficient abilities to feel and understand the majority of other people, and who also exhibit deficiencies in technical imagination and practical skills - (faculties indispensable for governing economic and political matters) - this then results in an exceptionally serious crisis in all areas, both within the country in question and with regard to international relations. Within, the situation becomes unbearable even for those citizens who were able to feather their nest into a relatively comfortable modus vivendi.  Outside, other societies start to feel the pathological quality of the phenomenon quite distinctly.  Such a state of affairs cannot last long.  One must then be prepared for ever more rapid changes, and also behave with great circumspection." (2nd. ed., p. 140)

The structural flaws in the EU are by design from the very beginning. The biggest risk is revealing this fact.

Which happened right now.

Not British. Plus the stats say British 12yo kids have better dental health than USA. Fewer missing teeth, fewer fillings - about the same as Luxembourg. Not quite sure what's up with our Belgian friend here ...

This pussy is pissing its pants if forced to pass only nearby a stomatologic cabinet, that's the simple explanation, these are the libtard leaders pussies and cowards, that's why they are in love with fascism because they are losers afraid to face the real life strong people and then they resort to oppressing paramilitary forces to get their wishes done not by fair and square negotiations, pretty much summarized in 'the art of the deal'

Bring the troops home

Fuck NATO

Why should we defend these faggots when they are brainwashed by one enemy and welcoming in another enemy?

Trump should bring back the troops to handle the shitstorm brewing over here. 

On the way out, he could say "Someone is going to rape you Europussies and I would rather it be Russians than Muslims.  Because I'm a racist, sexist Islamophobe.  By the way, all your leaders are pedophiles and all your banks are bankrupt.  Vlad, you are clear to drain the swamp!  Now send me that plane full of teenage Russian hookers.  Make sure the plane has lots of drinks and a broken toilet." 

Note:  Not actually suggesting Trump say this.  His trolling is much more subtle.  I just want to watch heads explode like popcorn.  Mmmm, popcorn.

But let them. All leftist think they can tell the US what to do even when their not citizens. Delusional fools.

Yeah, pretty much sums up the last 8 years seems like US has become Europe's fascist left/communists bitch :), I'm very sure this has made someof the powerful man in the business and military very sad and angree, and such we luckly got Trump to readjust the national dignity

Speaking of writing, does Tyler put typos in to these articles on purpose? Mr Armstrong supposedly "wrote" it, then Tyler reposted it, and nowhere in this chain did anyone actually read it and think WTF? Is it a subtle ploy by Tyler to make Armstrong look like an incoherent babbler? If so, well played, because it's working ;-)

Have you heard him speak? He is one of those colorless, odorless results of post-war politically correct upbringing.

He is a totally pussy, giggling whimp. Who cares what he says, as his only objective is to please the still big brother behind the curtain. He does not have an opinion as he only says stuff he believes he is supposed to say.

He was a belgian national politician before being picked up on waivers by the EU. I believe he left BE in a shambles.  Quite a system they have there - ejected/failed politicians are recycled by the EU bureaucracy... a new suit, a little mouthwash... why work a real job when the EU is a built-in retirement community for hack career politicians.

EU is doomed.

Vageling's picture

Nice feeling, eh? Either way the EU (which does not equal Europe. Russia is also ."Europe". We share a continent.  No Europe = no EU.)  Is desperate. That supranational entity didn't forget to add the fallen one. With more pay ofcourse and less accountability.
