A "Crystal Ball View Of Europe In 2022"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Zero Hedge has presented the work of Bulgarian modern artist Yanko Tsvetkov previously, both in 2010 and 2011. We are happy to see that his work which is meta irony on the weakest link of European culture: centuries worth of stereotype formation and development, has finally made its way into the mainstream media with the Guardian's "Stereotype maps: Is that what they think of us?" We are even happier to see that Tsvetkov has released a new one: a Crystal Ball view of Europe in 2022 which is his cartographic exercise in forecasting the political layout of Europe. While it is mostly an exercise in irony, we have to admit that the probability of him being spot on is high to quite high. We would however point out that by 2022 the "European (Dis)Union" will be a satellite region of Russia, or as it will be better known then, Gazpromia.

_______________________________________________________

Non sense. King Arthur's tale was a way for Celtic people to endure the sufferings imposed by the Saxons apartheid system they put in place while conquering the island.

The Breton-Frank-Occitan-Norman coalition ended that system Saxons would prove later to cherish (probably through genetics because it is hard to see any cultural connection between 6th century Saxons and 18th century Saxons)

So if you want to use a fitting name for a reich, try a Saxon name.

The Celts are indoeuropeans but they do not fit the bill here.

When looking around in the world today for initial fulfillments of this same future-fulfilled prophecy today, one cannot overlook how strong Europe was on its way to becoming until the Euro-zone Crisis hit in 2011, with Ireland, Greece, and Italy on the verge financial disasters, something that is threatening to bring the whole of Europe down with it.

 At the same time, Britain, as in ancient history, enjoys the title of being European, while its proud-filled leaders and people have always seen themselves as a nation separated from the European continent, which secures unto England a degree of time and protection against whatever is plaguing the continent.

 This example of a stronger, reserved, proud Britain against a mixed-powered, faltering, politically wind-driven continent of Europe can be seen even today within the Euro controversy itself. While many other European nations have all but virtually gave up their national currencies for the "stronger Euro," since the time it was introduced, Britain has always stood alone to rather keep its beloved British Sterling and Pound, a clear expression toward Britain's larger ideals of their own national exceptionalism, that great remnant of lofty pride from having ruled the world once before.

That beloved pound sterling used to be worth $2.80 when I was a kid.

I am not saying that the dollar today is worth a lot more than it did in the 1960's - simply that some currencies devalue at a much faster rate than others. :)

"one cannot overlook how strong Europe was on its way to becoming until the Euro-zone Crisis hit in 2011"

What a load of nonsense! Don't spend so much time absorbing the MSM.

Europe was a house of cards from the beginning and was a pathetic force -- both militarily and financially -- since long before 2011.

[Edit]:
Quote from Mervyn King, Governor of Bank of England, Feb 2010 ... "The EU's one single success was the monetary union, and now that success has been undermined."
[/Edit]

The Vatican-Banksta (ie. Jesuit-Sabbatean) clique were desperately trying to hold the EU together while struggling to find any solid new takers in the former Soviet sphere or on the Mediterranean rim. They were hoping to expand their central planning 'Axis of Evil' all the way to Moscow and to the Sahara, but have been looking at potentially losing more participants than they have been gaining for a number of years now.

The Most Powerful Man In The World

 

So, you thought you were pretty well informed by now about all of the main players on the “conspiracy” playing field? You’ve maybe been hearing for years about (or bumped into on your own) the various elements of society who control our world from behind the scenes. 

 

You’ve gotten familiar with the role played by, for instance, the Khazarian Zionists  (who invented the word “Jew” to disguise their adopted heritage, as distinguished from the biblical Judeans), or the role played by the Banksters (banking gangsters) controlling the economies of the world, by

 

* the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations)

* the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderbergers

* the Committee of 300 (the 17 wealthiest so-called “elite” families)

* the Rothschilds in England

* Rockefellers in America

* Bronfmans in Canada

I went a long time ago, to a place in Asia, (surrounded by Muslims) where I can live in peace with family and pay no income or cap gains tax.

The consequence is that not only do I have a superb lifestyle but that I also now have considerable savings that you must pay to the 'Fed' in taxes, which by definition IS your surplus. Neither the FED, ECB, or BoE can rob me blind... fortunately.

though clearly they would like and need to... Europe can go hang as far as I am concerned.

The one that cracked me up the most was 'Gays' - LOL :-)

Now we all laugh about this but in all seriousness - I saw a youtube video on how the European map changed over the past 2000 years and it was quite astounding. Empires came and went - everything was in constant flux. Just because we believe now today we are 'more civilized' we don't expect that map to change much but if you climb into a time machine (maybe you just have one handy) and travel 100 or 200 years in the future then I'm sure you'll see quite a few changes. And you may not like them...

I wouldn't count on that- its a different world right now (truth be told- excluding The Czech, as they took a different path way back in the '90). At least in Poland the people are a bunch of sedated sheep, the gubernment does whatever anyone calling themselves a globalist says and steals anything that isn't nailed down, the pention funds are a ponzi right at the end of the line, and the media is alergic to truth. This place is a shitpile and in a few years when the morons get their last bites pulled out of their mouths it wil change into a burning shitpile. Lithuania looks bad and without perspactive, Ukraine is racing to acertain 3rd world statuss, Belarus is just trying to climb into Russias ass...

 

Most problems in this part of europe come from a corrupt political class that "dug itself in" during the last decade... in Poland that is topped of with the communist bread, dumbest fucking waste'o'space'n'air population- so I think that when it falls its going to make a very loud boom, as the other countries around here just whimper away and become Russian satelites again.

Now i dont live in Poland, so you no doubt have a different perspective as a citizen, but i visit a few times a year for work, and the country really is up and coming more and more. That new skyscraper being built right downtown next to the Palace of Culture? New condo developments alllll along the highway from the Airport to downtown. More than enough 5* hotels to choose from. Always wonderful clients in terms of business. 

Yes, the country sold out to the States, but its at least doing SOMETHING right, in terms of economic progress and an ever increasing GDP. It was the only EU country to not dive into a recession in 2009 for a reason. 

By the end of the decade once prices adjust (RE in Poland//Warsaw is probably one of the best buys right now) i think Poland will be the main financial hub of CEE.

I apologize to the wonderfully creative people of Bulgaria. My Islamic friends have informed me however "it's all simply Euro-stan" to them. Of course the Persians beg to differ...and the Egytpians would speak up but they're being attacked. Again. In the meantime..back here in 'merica:

I might be missing something..... I do that. But let me say this: I lived with a Greek Orthidox family in a Christian village in a 90% (traditionally) Muslim country. 40'years of strict state sponored atheisim is a bitch...... just as bad as state sponsored religion. I was there a few years after their "transition" and saw missionaries pouring in of all stripes. Where they are now.... I do not know, but they are fucking tough and I would put up one of their women up against most American men in a fight, gun or fists. If they evolve into our enemy I am more afraid then I am of the Arabs, IMO.

Sorry...to Albanians their county is Shqiperi or " the land of the eagles " in Albanian. They have an advantage of having been a completely independent state ( although at time subsidized greatly by the Soviets and the Chinese) with mountains and sea as strategic defenses. They also have nothing anyone wants (resource wise). Which is always a plus. They also have a serious vendetta, honor killing based society where shit is not accepted.

He speaks of actions done by the House of Rothschild, a bloodline of moneylenders, and specifies that it has nothing to do with Jews, yet like the nice conditionned soldier that you are you lash out and rejoice in your inhumanity. Way to prove him right.
By the way, little soldier, a Rothschild wouldn't pour water on a burning jew if it cost him a cent per bucket. How's that make you feel for serving these kind of masters?

Report details abuses of NOAA 'pleasure' boat bought with fines

By Richard Gaines
Staff Writer

Using money from fines and other penalties imposed upon fishermen, a NOAA law enforcement office in Seattle, Wash., skirted legal procurement laws to acquire a luxury undercover cabin boat in 2008 that was used as a pleasure craft by unidentified personnel — including at least one agent, his wife and friends — according to a new, detailed report from the U.S. Commerce Department's inspector general.

More than $300,000 was taken from the Asset Forfeiture Fund, made up of fines paid by fishermen for violations of the Manguson-Stevens Fisheries Conservation and Management Act, to pay for the 35 foot Boston Whaler, and another $9,400 was charged to the forfeiture fund for moorage, fuel and maintenance.

The abuse of the fund to acquire the boat was first documented publicly in a July 2010 report by Inspector General Todd Zinser that focused heavily on the excessive fines and other NOAA enforcement abuses carried out against fishermen and waterfront businesses in Gloucester and around the Northeast.

But details of the purchase and misuse of the boat were only released to members of Congress this week after the filing of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests.

The requesting members, Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown and Congressman Rep. John Tierney, released the 34-page report to the Times late Thursday. The initial mention of the boat's purchase as an example of abuse of the AFF did not indicate which region of NOAA law enforcement had been responsible.

The IG began his investigation of law enforcement abuses in June 2010 after persistent complaints emanating from excesses traced to agents and litigators in the Northeast regional office here in Gloucester. The legislative leadership, then the congressional delegation petitioned NOAA Administator Jane Lubchenco to authorize the probe.

The new report was heavily redacted to protect the identity of the principals at the Seattle regional office who were involved in the saga of the undercover pleasure boat.

Chapter headings in the report include:

"Wife and firend aboard for initial launch, running out of fuel in canal, and trip across Puget Sound to Remerton restauarant (June 12, 200."

"Trip to Poulsbo restaurant and excursion with friends to Gig Harbor restaurant (Auig. 5, 200."

"Stranded with wife in Puget Sound en route to restaurant (Aug. 8, 200."

"Following undercover vessel engine failure en route to Blaine restaurant, substitute Office of Law Enforcement marked vessel used for what patrol and trip to Friday Harbor restaurant with subordinate agent's parents aboard."

The IG's report detailed countless violations of procurement procedures as well as "dishonest conduct prejudicial to the government, conduct demonstrating untrustworthiness or unreliability."

What, if any, action has been taken against anyone involved in the abuses could not be deduced from the redacted report.
However, it did note that "on May 31, 2011, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the district of Maryland declined criminal prosecution of (the unidentified agent) in favor of administrative remedies." NOAA headquarters are in Silver Spring, Md.
