    EU Commission President Threatens Italy On Eve Of Election, Says Brussels Has 'Tools' If Wrong Parties Win
    SATURDAY, SEP 24, 2022 - 09:20 AM
    Authored by John Cody via Remix News,

    European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen is being accused of election interference after threatening to use “tools” if the wrong election result is achieved in Italy’s national elections, set to take place this Sunday, Sept. 25.

    As GMM writes, the eurozone is in trouble with a capital T.

    Giorgia Meloni’s electric performances at political rallies have made her a virtual shoo-in to become Italy’s first female prime minister in Sunday’s ballot. She’ll also be the first to campaign with the flame symbol, evoking the former fascist leader, Benito Mussolini.

    The prospect of a charismatic nationalist taking power with almost no government experience has investors and officials on edge. Italy, of course, is wrestling with the fallout from the most serious conflict in Europe since WWII. But the country has been adrift for years, struggling to hit on a formula which can unlock its potential while staying true to its identity.

    Bloomberg

    Von der Leyen added that those same tools are already being used against Hungary and Poland.

    We will see the result of the vote in Italy,” said von der Leyen.

    “If things go in a difficult direction — and I’ve spoken about Hungary and Poland — we have the tools.”

    Von der Leyen made the comment after a journalist at Princeton University in the United States said that there were candidates in the Italian elections “close to Putin” and asked her how the EU would react if they were elected.

    We got in quite a Lady.........she is tough, smart , and has definate ideas......ideas that align with the people.......she needs to get out red hats with MIGA on the front.........the female PM in GB is putting forth the Trump agenda......and this firebrand in Italy , I suspect, will do the same......Trump disciples....we need about 12 of them world wide, to espose the new political religion.........this will occur when he has risen from the dead in 2024.

    Stop the invasion….like Sweden recently did!

    Here in the USA, call it what it is….3% of our population is responsible for over 50% of American violent crime. That’s the 16-40 year old black male. This isn’t a 13% problem, this is a 3% problem.

    It’s not “teenagers” robbing Wawa’s, randomly assaulting senior citizens, pushing Asians in front of trains, it’s the incorrigible group, maybe the 15% of the 3%.

    Tougher prosecutors, longer sentences for violent crime and more prisons.

    Western Europe has a couple courageous leaders with balls enough to talk about it. We don’t! How will it ever get better if we don’t face up to the problem?

    This (sure as shit) ain’t no current tv commercial. It’s the team of people who flew that spacecraft into that asteroid yesterday.

    Not a very diverse group…..lol

    APL will probably lose their funding soon.

    see that is the problem,if that group was not more diverse, it should not have been successful. But it does look like several people have their masks on.

    I am sorta worried about November, on the face of it, it should have been a conservative
    blow out, that is not going to happen, but why, have people changed so much that nothing
    matters, or did reps screw it up again, was Trump a factor.

    IT is scary, our gas went up from $3.24 to $3.99 this week, nobody seems to care

    your 100% correct, this kind of activity from a us congressmen should be applauded, it make
    the republican party stronger and after she thought Trump one.
    Like she says......nown for her QAnon conspiracy theories, she boasts on her social media of her love of 'family values' and being a 'strong, conservative, Christian'

    perfect

    But you think back to when prices got so high under Obama, there were trucker strikes and convoys
    to the cities, now nothing How you going to encourage good government policy if the people
    have no reaction.

    Up to $3.85 here today. Up about 60 cents in the last month.

    We’re taking this shit in stride now. Ho-hum. Biden’s approval creeping up. Republicans beating their meat instead of finding a candidate who can beat President Idiot. Somebody step up, please. Ron D, you are on the main stage now. Ian will make or break you. You have no friends in the press. Overreact! Keep asking Biden for the Moon. Put the turd on his plate.

    New low for the year in the Dow. Billions lost in FLA. It’ll take years to settle all those claims. Biden will jump in with Federal dollars, looking to buy Florida in 2024. It just might work.

    Ukraine wants into NATO officially. Putin took over 4 territories. If we attack those four, are we attacking mainland Russia? He’s talking nukes again. Will China sign off on Putin using The Bomb? That seems to be the key question, IMO. Israel running nuclear drills prepping Iran attack before those cocksuckers get The Bomb?

    Another great fucking week. At least, I’ll be gone before the Feds come for my dough. Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em.

    Whomever draws my name in the Secret Santa gift exchange, I wear 17.5 x 34. I promise to wear this at Saratoga next summer.

    I wanna look like a tall dog, for once. Fedora and all. And a couple winners.
