Farage On Barroso: "He's A Deluded Communist Idiot"

Tyler Durden's picture


Commenting on the incredible circle-jerk that Europe (sovereign-to-banking-system) has become, the outspoken UKIP MEP Nigel Farage exclaimed to FOX Business in this best-ever-rant clip that "The whole thing is a giant Ponzi scheme, isn't it?" Goaded somewhat by the interviewer's questions citing Barroso's intimation that the US is to blame for Europe's problems, Farage opines that "Barroso is a deluded idiot" and a communist who supported Chairman Mao. The contagion effect from the US financial crisis did have impacts on Europe, there is no doubt, but as the frustrated Farage notes: the reason the Euro is in the state it is in is that they put together a completely artificial currency with countries that never fitted together on top of which was added a regulatory cost burden through excess regulation on the environment and employment legislation that is driving parts of Europe towards being a third world country; "America, you are not to blame". The clip goes on to discuss the circular bailout fantasy, the taxpayer burden leading to a democratic revolution, and at the end of the day "this whole thing is going bust" as the likable libertarian notes that European leaders believe that "well-educated bureaucrats know better than we the poor peasants how best our lives should be led" which is the same path that led to the economic and social crash-and-burn in the Soviet Union.

An Epic Rant...

Things hotting-up in Syria, where the army now seems to be on the front foot and is (reportedly) being directly assisted by Iranian special forces commandos, and are engaged in firefights with infiltrators near the Lebanese and possibly Turkish borders.


Homs rebels: Army must leave, or we’ll start killing civilians (Op-Ed)
Published: 20 June, 2012, 18:53
A peace activist is claiming the Syrian Army is reinforcing with heavy weapons and locating snipers at the borders with Lebanon and Turkey while clashes continue in villages in central Syria.  Consultant and peace activist Christoph R. Hörstel told RT that his information “is directly obtained from Syrian security personnel of various origins personally taking part in battles and other operations, and/or close relatives of such personnel – some are even well-known people."
Almost all towns are under the government control except for Homs, where rebels and ‘terrorists’ have asked the army to leave – otherwise they have threatened to kill the civilians.  Syrian officials say up to 5000 civilians have been ‘taken hostage’ in Homs, the cradle of the Syrian uprising. The Syrian army refuses to bargain with the insurgents mingled with ‘terrorists’ in the city in Syria’s west, and has not started an assault. The army has halted operations, in order not to cause loss of life among the ‘hostages’.  However, Homs’s area is completely surrounded and is being monitored by the army. The same Syrian officials state that what appears on international media as Homs demonstrators are in fact these ‘hostages’.
For the last three days ‘terrorists’ have been trying to infiltrate across the Lebanese border, but face gunfights with the regular army supported by Iranian commandos.  Infiltrating mercenaries try to move directly to Damascus, but suffer heavy losses already at the borders, say Syrian officials.
... more ...


So it would appear that the rumour that the US is about to bomb Syria has lead to both Iran and Russia to commit forces to directly defend Syria, quell the 'free Syrian army', and begin to restabilise the situation.

What a non-threat!  Peaceful and independent Tibetans living free lives and practicing their own religion.  We Communist Chinese cannot allow this to continue on our borders!  Tibet must be blobbed-up, and Tibetan civilians will be executed (and eventually completely exterminated).

Chinese Citizenism at work.

And a follow up from General R. Mood, in charge of UN's monitoring mission in Syria: he says UN is forced to suspend the mission b/c  UN observers have been given safety guarantees by the Syrian government, but not from the opposition.

I must admit, I did not see this escalation coming.  I thought Syria was just a "ah who gives a fuck right now" place, and that was reason for the total atrocity breakdown.  But this escalation is giving pause...

It is disheartening how misinformed the US populace is of the facts on the ground in Syria. The US media has a very biased slant and is very clearly carrying water for those pushing for a new regime. What's worse is fact Western coalition isn't up to the task — it is losing to Russia and Iran.

you guys are too impressed by a brit accent.  that was a +6 rant, at best.  typical Tory whining about nthe Contient and Brussels and the loss of the sovereignty, etc.  It's all valid arguments, very important: but really, this is just an average rant, and nothing anyone informed does not already well-realize has been part of the debate over there for 20 years.

Farage is a City shill... the UK is MUCH worse off than the EU. 

Smoke and mirrors.

He should be talking about ONE thing only: WHY is the UK in the EU?

He should man up and DEMAND the UK to leave the EU.

I would like the media to start  referring to Bonds as Debt instruments.This is the first step towards properly describing Bonds as A) "legitimate",or  B) "never,ever to be paid back". 

Two years ago I thought of Nigel Farrage as just entertaining. But he has hit the target so many times.Bullseye,spot on. One must give the guy credit. When the history books are written about this period, I think he will be described as one of the few clear thinkers,a voice in the wilderness...

I think everyone understood some time ago that there would barely be enough money for a Spain/Italy bailout,and this would be a one shot scenario.Okay,so the money is gone,the insolvent bank problem remains. Now what?  Spanish youth unemployment at 50%,hot Summer and alcohol. Hmmmmm......

Imagine that, PM's take a beating ahead of Fed meeting.   Short the paper price and then load up on the metal with your winnings.    They make simple for us nut sacks to join China in loading up the canoe.  Lake bottoms all over the world are now gilded in gold.  Are we there yet?  

How about choosing a date for executing the tards?   Local groups choose a rep to blast one of the biggies.  The rest of the group watch his back and docuement his right to take the law into his own hands due to lack of gov. protection of his rights.   A list of the next ex-tard and reason for the ranking is publisized.   Corrupt judges get top billing.  Names are named on a daily basis.   The day of the printed sheet tacked up all over town comes back.   It tells the tale that never makes the MSM news.

Actually I blame the Europe for our economic collapse, they are the investors that funded fraudulent home loans for illegal aliens,  then doubled down on funding municipal debt based on their fraudulent home values. 

To fix the EU, America needs to allow FNM FRE FHA to go bankrupt. 

Then all the Socialist jerks that invested other people's pensions in home loan fraud can all be hoisted unto a lightpoles like Mussolini, then the EU can "move on" without a leadership with a criminal ideology.

"America, you are not to blame"

Greenspan can be blamed for some of the EU troubles. If US interest rates had remained realistic (between 6% and 7%) the whole EU borrowing binge for the past 20 years would have not happened. Both gov't borrowing and consumer borrowing would have been much less with higher interest rates. Note that when the US drops rates in most instances the rest of the industialize world follows by lower there own rates.

Greenspan might just be the man that created the most wealth destruction in recorded human history! Never in history have so many borrowed beyond their means, all because one man decided to drop interest rates to riduculous lows for no significant reason but to delay/prevent normal perodic enconomic recessions.

How sensitive you are when someone from abroad says (replying to some Canadian naive journalist) what you shout every minute all day long behind doors. Mr Farage is none else then pirate queen Elisabeth doggy dog, or shall I say hot dog? Fox and all WASP broken Ponzy pirates of this world (95% of the Derivatives Black Hole was generated and expanded by 9 banks -- 4 americans, 1 brit) are just a bit too nervous now. 911 was not enough a provocation. Didn't work out like Pearl Harbour. Shit! The same with Irak, Afghanistan, and the hilarious assassination of Bin Laden. Now what? Oh yeah, a lunatic Nobel Prize needs an alien invasion to shake things up, or, even better, a war in Europe! So let's prepare it, starting with some big fire in Iran as soon as possible! In the meantime, America is drowning in reverse-speculation and social misery. Barroso, a maoist? You know what pro-soviet communists in Portugal always said about Jose Manuel Durao Barroso? Well, that he was a CIA agent from the beginning! The American Dream is over. Have you notice it? The rest of the world did :(
