IRELAND SAYS NO TO LISBON TREATY!!

EUObserver

Across Ireland, voters have strongly voted No to the Lisbon Treaty, which looks all but certainly set for defeat.

Nationwide, based on unofficial tallies of seven out of 43 constituencies declared, the No is leading the Yes side 57.6 percent to 42.4 percent.

Dermot Ahern, the Irish justice minister, speaking on RTE television, said: “We’re in uncharted waters here.”

“The results are quite clear,” he added, “I don’t see how they can be overturned [from where they are at this point].”

Declan Ganley, the millionaire businessman and founder of Libertas, the centre-right anti-Treaty group campaigning around tax harmonisation issues and against European ‘red tape’, said: “It’s a great day for the Irish people and a great day for Irish democracy.”

“The Irish people have shown enormous courage and wisdom. They have given a resounding meassage that comes atop the votes against the constitution in France and the Netherlands.

“We are bringing democracy into the heart of the European Union,” he added, speaking to reporters in the courtyard of Dublin Castle, where the central vote count is being held. “This is democracy in action, and the third time Irish citizens have said ‘No’ to this formula.”

This is precisely why the corrupt governments of the other 26 members of the EU refused to give their respective People a referendum on the EUCCP Lisbon Treaty and the majority have already ratified it (in Britain the ratification is an Act of Treason). For an overview of the Treaty’s clauses and ramifications, please visit my earlier post Why Ireland Should Vote No To the Lisbon Treaty.

Barring vote tampering, it looks like end result will be definitely be NO. The Daily Mail reports the following;

Irish voters appeared to have rejected the Lisbon Treaty this afternoon, throwing the European Union into crisis.

To shock across the continent,  the country’s Justice Minister Dermot Ahern conceded today that the vote appeared to have been won by opponents of the controversial treaty.

‘It looks like this will be a “no” vote,’ Mr Ahern said on live television.

“At the end of the day, for a myriad of reasons, the people have spoken.”

The result, if correct, would deal a devastating blow to the controversial treaty and have major ramifications for the rest of Europe.

Ireland is the only EU country to have held a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty, though 18 of the 27 members states have already ratified it.

We should use this intelligent and wise result from the Irish People to spread the truth about the Lisbon Treaty to those who do not know the facts. Time to step up the dissemination of information about the waste, the corruption, the Communist ideal’s and the dictatorship that is the real Face of the European Dream.

No doubt the EU will try its hardest to accelerate its progress and its plans for abolishing the sovereignty of member nations. The BBC mentions;

The BBC’s Oana Lungescu in Brussels says EU leaders are bracing for defeat but are expected to press on with the treaty, which is meant to streamline decision-making in the now expanded EU.

People have to realise that their respective governments do not act in their best interests or in the interests of their Laws. This has been decades in the planning and implementing and we are now in the final stages of their endgame for the European Superstate;

Former Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovksy, who personally saw secret documents in 1992 which outlined a conspiracy to turn the European Union into a Socialist dictatorship;

The Soviet files outlined a plan from the mid-1980’s onwards to hijack the European Union and turn it into what Bukovksy calls the EUSSR, a totalitarian federal superstate with no accountability or direct representation.

There would have been no more Treaties after Lisbon, none would have been necessary as it would have finalised the transfer of all sovereign powers of all nations to Brussels.

That is why Brussels commanded our heads of State to ratify it without a public vote.

That is why Brussels refused to let member States publish the Lisbon Treaty until it is ratified.

That is why Brussels redesigned the Treaty with the specific intention of covering up the original Constitution while keeping all of its changes.

And that is why we, the People must STOP IT. Our governments are firmly in the grip of the EU which is obvious by their actions and inactions. We need to get active and pressure our governments like never before.

They have abused their power too much, for too long.

Today however, the score definitely reads;

Ireland 1 – 0 Tyranny.

Why Ireland should vote No to the Lisbon Treaty

I am going to keep this simple.

Firstly, as I am sure people following the progress of the Lisbon Treaty will know, Ireland is the only country in the European Union who’s Constitution requires the ratification of the Treaty to be put to a public vote. Good. The re-wording of the original European Constitution to a Treaty in reality changes nothing of its content as the orignal Constitution is for all intents and purposes, intact in the Lisbon Treaty, albeit hidden. Disagree?

How about from the mouths of those whom one would expect to know, starting with the architect of the original Constitution, Valery Giscard d’Estaing, who states, in the Telegraph, 27 June 2007;

“This text is, in fact, a rerun of a great part of the substance of the Constitutional Treaty.”

He also appears in the Telegraph again where it is stated;

Valéry Giscard d’Estaing, the architect of the abandoned European Constitution, has admitted that the document has been rewritten by EU leaders in a different order just to avoid the need for referendums.

He made clear that the purpose of the rewritten Treaty (now called the Lisbon Treaty) was to make people think the new version did not merit being put to the people in referendums.

“Above all, it is to avoid having referendums thanks to the fact that the articles are spread out and constitutional vocabulary has been removed,” he added.

Here some more quotes, from an earlier article of mine;

Germany
“The substance of the Constitution is preserved. That is a fact.”
(Angela Merkel, German Chancellor, Telegraph, 29 June 2007)

Spain
“We have not let a single substantial point of the Constitutional Treaty go… It is, without a doubt, much more than a treaty. This is a project of foundational character, a treaty for a new Europe.”
(Jose Zapatero, Spanish Prime Minister, speech, 27 June 2007)

Ireland
“90 per cent of it is still there… these changes haven’t made any dramatic change to the substance of what was agreed back in 2004.”
(Bertie Ahern, Irish Taoiseach, Irish Independent, 24 June 2007)

The European Commission
“It’s essentially the same proposal as the old Constitution.”
(Margot Wallstrom, EU Commissioner, Svenska Dagbladet, 26 June 2007)

And so on… So yes, it is all still there, just a different lick of paint and buried in other documents you have probably never read either.

But what is there exactly? What does the Lisbon Treaty mean for Brussels, and for its member states (who apart from Ireland, were all refused a say on the Treaty because the People were overwhelmingly against it).

In a nutshell;

An analysis by Prof. Anthony Coughlan

Today the European Union leaders signed the Lisbon Treaty. This treaty gives the EU the constitutional form of a state. These are the ten most important things the Lisbon Treaty does:

1. It establishes a legally new European Union in the constitutional form of a supranational European State.
2. It empowers this new European Union to act as a State vis-a-vis other States and its own citizens.
3. It makes us all citizens of this new European Union.
4. To hide the enormity of the change, the same name – European Union – will be kept while the Lisbon Treaty changes fundamentally the legal and constitutional nature of the Union.
5. It creates a Union Parliament for the Union’s new citizens.
6. It creates a Cabinet Government of the new Union.
7. It creates a new Union political President.
8. It creates a civil rights code for the new Union’s citizens.
9. It makes national Parliaments subordinate to the new Union.
10. It gives the new Union self-empowerment powers.

The complete article (which should definitely be read) is revealingly named ‘These Boots Are Gonna Walk All Over You‘ and is located here.

So, what to do? Your government is telling you to vote Yes (although they would much rather just refused you a vote altogether), many unions and groups are campaigning against the Treaty, not sure what you are going to do? Firstly, I strongly suggest you use your vote. This Treaty will give the EU superior powers over all of your Laws (including your Constitution). This is a FACT. The European Union is just dying to expand the EU into North Africa and accelerate its expansion. Also a FACT. The French foreign minister Bernard Kouchner is currently threatening Ireland at the prospect of you guys and gals kicking the elitists in Brussels where it hurts. Apparently;

Mr Kouchner said that a “No” vote would be met by “gigantic incomprehension” in the rest of Europe.

That is a lie. It is also a blanket statement made by one politician who claims to speak for Europe which is strange considering the Lisbon Treaty was crafted specifically to stop the People having a say on it. He is just trying to use the spectre of Europe as a battering ram to frighten you into capitulating to the demands of Brussels. In truth however;

75% of people in the EU want a referendum on any new treaty which gives more powers to the EU. In the UK, 83% would want a vote to be held. A majority in all 27 countries would want a referendum.

Which brings me to my final points. The first is, what is so democratic and freedom-loving about threatening countries who may disagree with the EU? The little dictator-in-training continued;

“It would be very, very, very troubling…that we could not count on the Irish, who themselves have counted a lot on Europe’s money,”

So the EU was just pretending to be helpful, when in reality it was trying to set Ireland up to leverage power from them in the future. Sounds like the antics of a loan shark doesn’t it? This brings me to my final point.

Whether you currently think Yes or No, there is a 99.9% change that you do not really know what is in the Treaty. I don’t mean you couldn’t understand it, I just mean that you haven’t read it. This is not surprising considering the EU is refusing to allow member governments to publish readable versions of the Treaty until it is completely ratified!

So when you go to vote, just imagine you are in a bank to sign a contract on a home you already own. The suit across the table is trying to convince you to sign it. The document you have is literally unreadable. You are not sure what is in it, but you do know that at the very least it will result in massive changes in the way you can govern your own home. You don’t know how though. You don’t know how much it will cost in the future or what direction it will take either. But you do know that signing this contract means the rules you used to live by will now become secondary to the rules of that Bank. But you don’t know what the Bank’s rules are. You do know that the Banks accounts have not been signed off for at least the past 14 years because of rampant corruption and misuse of funds. You do know that a very large number of people are against the EU’s legal framework and the Lisbon Treaty. You do know that the contract contains a self amendment clause (Article 48) which will enable them to;

give the EU powers to amend its own treaties, without recourse to an intergovernmental conference or a new Treaty. It is also unclear whether this ‘simplified revision procedure’ would be subject to a referendum.

These are some other things you do know, from the National Platform EU Research and Information Centre via Wise Up Journal (each point in explained in detail in the source article);

1. Lisbon makes the EU Constitution superior to the Irish Constitution in all areas of EU law.
2. Lisbon gives the EU the constitutional form of a supranational European Federal State and turns Ireland and the other Member States into regions or provinces of this Federation.
3. Lisbon shifts influence over law-making and decision-taking in the EU towards the Big States and away from the smaller ones like Ireland.
4. Lisbon removes Ireland’s right to a permanent EU Commissioner.
5. Lisbon deprives the Irish Government of its right to decide who Ireland’s Commissioner would be when it comes to our turn to be on the Commission.
6. Lisbon gives the European Union the power to make laws in 32 new areas that are removed from the Dail and other National Parliaments.
7. Lisbon is a self-amending Treaty which would open the way to harmonising Ireland’s company taxes.
8. Lisbon gives the EU the power to decide our human and civil rights.
9. Lisbon provides that if one-third of National Parliaments object to the Commission’s proposal for an EU law, the Commission must reconsider it, but not necessarily abandon it.
10. Lisbon militarizes the EU further.

Finally, if you think you can just opt out of it afterwards, think again;

David Cameron yesterday said it would be “almost impossible” to have a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty if it was already law in the UK and the rest of the EU.

So, would you still sign that contract or refuse to do so until you can appreciate the number of changes it may make and what the effects of those changes could be on your life and that of your community?

Go Ireland!

British tourists are told to put EU stickers on their passports

Daily Mail

Britons are to be asked to put a sticker proclaiming the rights of European Union “nationals” on the back cover of their passports.

From July 1 next year all new passports issued in the UK and other member countries will quote Article 20 of the EU’s founding treaty.

But in the meantime the European Commission has also told the British Government to produce stickers quoting the article and encourage as many people as possible to put them on their passports.

In case you didn’t know already, this is just another step in a long line of laws and proposals passed down from the unelected and unaccountable EU in order to mine power and influence away from sovereign nations. The goal is to eventually do away with sovereign parliaments and laws, instead governing the entire area from Brussels. The increasing power has continued to grow through the Treaties.

Foreign Office officials last night said the Government was “positive” about the proposals and diplomats were finalising details such as the look of the stickers and how they would be distributed.

Just so you know who the government truly serves.

Shadow Foreign Secretary William Hague said Ministers should tell the EU to mind its own business.

“Once again the EU is desperate to muscle in on passports. Our Government should remind them that British passports are still primarily Britain’s business,” he said.

“The danger is that this is all part of a broader Brussels agenda to extend their control over how people are looked after abroad. Now it’s passports – next could be visas and embassies.”

Indeed, if the Lisbon Treaty is ratified (which cannot be allowed to pass) there will not be a need for sovereign visas and embassies. The EU technically could shut them all down and replace them with EU embassies. It even goes further than that;

Britain’s 153 embassies around the world will be closed as the ink from the Queen’s signature dries. (As Tony Blair refused to admit this has been agreed to, Jose Zapatero, the Prime Minister of Spain, confirmed it in a February 2005 radio broadcast.) – Eu Truth

The EU has almost completed its supra-national power grab. Note that the British passport already has ‘European Union’ emblazed on it, above the United Kingdom and Royal Coat of Arms. That is not random. You can imagine over time, the EU wording getting larger and the rest of it shrinking until only the EU is left.

That is what’s happening.

From July 2009, the new wording will appear alongside the official message in the name of the Queen under legislation published in Brussels last week and given the nod by British Ministers. The Article reminds “citizens” they are entitled to assistance from the embassy of any EU member state.

I don’t anything about this legislation from Brussels, I wasn’t given a vote on it. But that’s just the point though, your vote will be meaningless in the completed EU. When the text refers to ‘citizens’ it means European Citizens. The Lisbon Treaty sets up the EU as its own legal entity. This gives us dual citizenship. When the ‘rights’ or laws of the EU conflict with those of the member state, the EU’s laws will overrule.

1. It establishes a legally new European Union in the constitutional form of a supranational European State.
2. It empowers this new European Union to act as a State vis-a-vis other States and its own citizens.
3. It makes us all citizens of this new European Union.
4. To hide the enormity of the change, the same name – European Union – will be kept while the Lisbon Treaty changes fundamentally the legal and constitutional nature of the Union.
5. It creates a Union Parliament for the Union’s new citizens.
6. It creates a Cabinet Government of the new Union.
7. It creates a new Union political President.
8. It creates a civil rights code for the new Union’s citizens.
9. It makes national Parliaments subordinate to the new Union.
10. It gives the new Union self-empowerment powers.

Brussels Journal

Most people don’t know this, but then again, most people don’t know anything of any real importance. That’s the problem. While people are moaning about mass immigration (EU Amsterdam Treaty 1997) and other issues our government no longer has any authority over, these Laws, Treaties and Proposals and constantly being churned out of Brussels with every single one involved in increasing the powers of the EU over its member states.

The issue is so GRAVE that this is probably the gravest in our lifetime. In fact all civil organizations of all EU countries should start uniting  their powers to prevent the ratification of the Treaty.

The content of the Treaty, as well as the circumstances within which it has been forced onto the member states are so alarming that if this Treaty will be ratified, that will be the end of freedom for the nations of Europe. – Marvin Brenik

As far as government and country is concerned, there is nothing more important than stopping the Lisbon Treaty and leaving the EU. It is a DICTATORSHIP.

Face of EU Dictatorship

Former Soviet Dissident Warns For EU Dictatorship

After the Lisbon Treaty, there will be no others. There won’t need to be. You see, the Treaty contains a self-amendment clause.

Article 48, Article 308 and others make the treaty self-amending in that they enable the European Council to extend the areas in which the EU can legislate and make major changes to the functioning of the Union by majority vote, without the need for a new treaty and, therefore, without the need for referendums in Ireland or elsewhere. – Libertas.org

At the very worst, the Prime Minister hasn’t read the Treaty. But he’s signed it. You’re not allowed to vote on it, although it affects you. While we’re on the subject, you didn’t vote for the Prime Minister either. In fact, he refused a general election too.  Seems like we are already in a dictatorship.

Let me repeat. This is not a joke. I’ve known this for ages and the more research I do, the more evidence I find in supporting our immediate exit from the Communist Claws of the EU. I’ve chosed to support the UKIP Party primarily for this reason, as voting for any of the other parties while knowing what I know would amount to me being an accessory to Treason (none of the other parties would dare touch upon the subject of leaving the EU).

Even people I talk to in town and at work have brainwashed, unsubstantiated opinons of the greatness of the EU and that being against the EU is ‘racist’. When I say I’m voting UKIP people have commented, saying ‘aren’t they like the BNP?’

No they fucking aren’t you ignorant serfs.

If we don’t leave the infernal supranational regime, nothing else is going to matter.

We’re on the express elevator to hell – going down! – Private Hudson, Aliens

The only difference between the EU Constitution and the Lisbon Treaty is that in the Lisbon Treaty the Constitution is obfuscated better.

“The substance of the Constitution is preserved. That is a fact.” – (Angela Merkel, German Chancellor, Telegraph, 29 June 2007)

EU Map deletes England, replaces it with Regions

The Lisbon Treaty which was signed by Europe’s leaders on December 13th 2007 seeks to establish the European Union on an entirely new legal basis.  In effect, its amendments to the Treaty on the European Union (TEU) and the Treaty Establishing the European Community (TEC) create a de facto constitution, comprising more than 90% of the substance of the EU Constitutional Treaty rejected by the people of the Netherlands and France in 2005. – Libertas.org

So it is entirely relevant to speak of the Constitution on these matters. Realise that the re-writing of the Lisbon Treaty was primarily done to get the Constitution passed in member states without giving the people a say in the matter.

You were denied a vote you were promised. If you don’t support the UK Independence Party your vote will probably never matter again. I found the party after I’d done my research, and I actually read their manifesto and realised it makes perfect sense.

If the Lisbon Treaty is ratified, the following things could happen (more are listed on the source site, please visit it to learn more);

The EU takes ownership and command of our Police, Army, Royal Navy, RAF, nuclear weapons, currency reserves, North Sea Oil. (See the EU Constitution below)

Serving officers in our police, army, navy and air force already know they will have to take an oath to the EU instead of to the Queen. If they don’t many have been told they will be dismissed. The EU will have complete military control of the UK.

The UK Independence Party will be banned under the 1999 ruling of the European court of Justice case c274/99, where it was held that it is illegal to criticise the EU.

The Conservative, Labour and Lib-dem parties will be abolished (only pan EU parties like the EPP or PES are allowed -see clause I.46.4 of the EU Constitution). It will then be blindingly obvious to even the dumbest politician there is no reason to keep Westmister open, and that the EU has the legal right to close it.

We will all be criminalised by the 107,000 regulations. Its impossible to know or understand 107,000 regulations, and the poor can’t possibly afford to comply. We will all be subject to frequent fines and arrest as a result. Here are just 4 examples:

Under EU regulations it is now illegal for you to repair your plumbing, electrics or your car (from 1st January 2006). If you buy a boat over six feet long, built after the EU Recreational Craft Directive of 1999, and don’t pay the EU £4,000 to “measure” the boat, you get 6 months imprisonment. We will live under permanent threat of arrest and fear of the knock at the door that takes us away.

There will be no redress through local democracy because there won’t be any. The nine UK regional governments, which replace our 48 counties and councillors, will be unelected (see the European Regionisation plan). Our only vote is to the powerless EU parliament. We will be ruled by the 25 unelected Commisssioners, and have have no redress at any level; we will be as poor but have less freedom than Soviet Citizens.

If we demonstrate or protest we can be be seized and relocated to another region. The EU Arrest Warrant and Civil Contingencies Act 2004, with 20 other oppressive Acts the Queen has signed between 1972 and 2005, give the government absolute power over us. They can shoot us if they wish with no legal comeback – the shootings of innocents Philip Prout and Jean de Menezes were entirely legal under EU law.

Please, just try and tell other people about this, and wake them up. Decades of TV junket and brainwashing have turned people away from politics when they need to be paying attention the most. People voted Conservative because they don’t like Labour. THAT ISN’T HOW YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO VOTE. You’re suppsed to do research, read manifestos, keep an open mind and question everything.

You no longer have any choices. Time is running out. You know what you must do.
