The Treaty of Lisbon: how the EU operates

Tratado de Lisboa 2007 *{{eo|Ŝtatestroj de Eŭr...Image via Wikipedia
James Higham on "nourishing obscurity" has outdone himself with a great series of posts on the workings of the EU after the Lisbon Treaty has come into force. Here it is:

TEAM: "A black day for Democracy in Europe"

On December 1st 2009 the Lisbon Treaty enters into force. With the Lisbon Treaty the EU gets a President and a Minister of foreign Affairs (Articles 15 and 18). In more than 50 areas powers are transferred from the member states to Brussels, and the Treaty states directly that EU-laws have precedence over national laws (Declaration 17).

The member states bind themselves to increase their military capacity permanently (Article 42,3), and the EU is recognized as a Legal Personality (Article 47). On these and countless other areas the Lisbon Treaty is a huge step towards the United States of Europe, and undermines national sovereignty and the democratically elected national Parliaments of the individual member states.

Team, the European alliance of EU critical movements: "Danish pending legal action against the Lisbon Treaty could save the day"

(...) Poland, The Czech Republic and Germany have not yet finished their ratification. This is mainly due to law suits, documenting the profound consequences that accession to the Treaty will have for the member countries.

We, a group of citizens who have brought an action against the Danish Government, charging it with breaking the Danish Constitution, take the liberty to draw the attention of the Irish People to these pending law suits and to the serious political effects of the Lisbon Treaty that they demonstrate. The Treaty confers almost unlimited powers on the EU, thus undermining the Constitutions and the living Democracy in the member countries. It threatens the possibility of the peoples of Europe to have a decisive influence on their own societies and living conditions. (...) >>>

Prague Daily Monitor: "LN: Klaus testing EU's courage by offering Lisbon compromise"

Czech President Vaclav Klaus does not risk so much by offering a compromise that would enable his signing the Lisbon treaty to complete its ratification, but he, on the contrary, exposes the EU to a test of courage, Bohumil Dolezal writes in Lidove noviny (LN) Tuesday.

Klaus demands an opt-out for Czechs from the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, a part of the treaty, to secure the inviolability of the post-war Benes decrees on the basis of which ethnic Germans were deported from then Czechoslovakia after World War Two and their property was confiscated.

Political analyst Dolezal reminds that Klaus is persistent and stubborn in his opposition to the EU's deepening integration, and he is fighting against it in the name of the Czech Republic's sovereignty. Now Klaus wants an addendum to "Lisbon" stating that the Czech law is superior to the EU law. (...) >>>

On the day Angela declares victory for Lisbon, in effect ending the sovereignty of her country, Germany's highest court has ruled to halt the ratification process until the German parliament changes a domestic law to strengthen the role of the country's legislative bodies in implementing European Union laws. Irrelevant, but noteworthy is popular opinion ...

EUobserver: "Irish commissioner says EU Treaty would be rejected in most countries"

Ireland's EU commissioner, Charlie McCreevy, has said that the Lisbon Treaty would be rejected by most member states if put to a referendum. With just a few months to go before his own country's second referendum on the document, the plain-speaking former finance minister said 95 percent of the 27 member states would have said "no" to the new institutional rules if it had been put to a vote. Heads of state are far more realistic than Brussels 'fonctionnaires'The commissioner, in charge of the internal market, reckons all leaders know this and it is only officials working in the EU institutions who have unrealistic expectations about the popularity of the treaty, designed to streamline how the EU functions and removing the unanimity requirement for decision-making in most policy areas. "When Irish people rejected the Lisbon Treaty a year ago, the initial reaction ranged from shock to horror to temper to vexation. That would be the view of a lot of the people who live in the Brussels beltway," he told the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ireland on Friday (26 June), reports the Irish Times. (...) >>>

Time: "Vaclav Klaus: The Man with the E.U.'s Fate in His Hands"

Will he sign it or will he spike it? That's the question lingering in Europe's capitals as Czech President Vaclav Klaus holds the key to the European Union's future.
The Czech Republic is one of four E.U. countries - out of 27 - that are yet to finish ratifying a treaty that would allow the enlarged bloc to reform its institutions. The goal of the Lisbon Treaty, which the E.U. has been working on since its failed attempt to pass a constitution in 2005, is to boost the E.U.'s influence on the world stage by making it more effective. (Read "Czech Government's Collapse Hits the E.U.")

The Czech government first submitted the treaty for ratification in parliament in January 2008, but its opponents, encouraged by euroskeptic Klaus, managed to put the painstakingly negotiated accord on the back burner for over a year. Finally, the Czech Senate was the last parliamentary chamber in the E.U. to approve the treaty on May 6, passing the hot potato onto the president, whose signature is required for ratification. Klaus, 67, opposes the treaty as a boon to the E.U.'s bigger members and a threat to his country's sovereignty, and he has since kept Europe on tenterhooks as it waits to see whether or not he will sign.

FT: "Czechs clear way for Lisbon treaty"

The upper house of the Czech parliament on Wednesday approved the European Union’s Lisbon treaty by a convincing majority, increasing the chances that long-awaited institutional reforms in the 27-nation bloc will come into effect on January 1, 2010. The Czech senate’s 54-20 vote was comfortably above the margin required for approval and came as a relief to EU leaders, who have invested the best part of 10 years in trying to redesign the EU’s decision-making procedures in a way that satisfies everyone. (...)

The treaty still needs the signature of Vaclav Klaus, the Czech head of state, who is a fierce critic of Lisbon (...) he would have to sign the document sooner rather than later. The Czech vote will put similar pressure on Lech Kaczynski, Poland’s president, who has delayed signing the treaty even though the Polish parliament has passed it.

The chief obstacle to the treaty now lies five months ahead in the form of an Irish referendum, expected in October, that must be held if Lisbon is to secure the necessary approval from all EU member-states. Irish voters rejected the treaty in a referendum in June 2008. (...) >>>

Cranmer: "Lisbon Treaty introduces EU-wide death penalty"

(...) the Treaty of Lisbon reintroduces the death penalty in Europe (...) ‘very important’ (just a bit), ‘in light of the fact that Italy was trying to abandon the death penalty through the United Nations, forever. And this is not in the treaty, but in a footnote, because with the European Union reform treaty, we accept also the European Union Charter, which says that there is no death penalty, and then it has a footnote, which says, "except in the case of war, riots, upheaval"—then the death penalty is possible. Schachtschneider points to the fact that this is an outrage, because they put it in a footnote of a footnote, and you have to read it, like really like a super-expert to find out!’ (...) >>>

Prague Daily Monitor: "Czech lower house approves Lisbon Treaty"

The EU's reform treaty cleared the lower house of the Czech parliament Wednesday as the first step on its often delayed road to ratification by the nation that now holds the EU presidency. The Chamber of Deputies granted its consent with the ratification after a vote of 125 for and 61 against, deputy PM Alexandr Vondra said. The next steps call for the Senate to okay the treaty, and for President Václav Klaus, an outspoken eurosceptic, to put his signature to it. >>>

WSJ: "Dublin and the Democratic Deficit - How the Irish might save European civilization, again"

Ireland's decision to hold a second referendum on the EU's Lisbon Treaty, a variation on Europe's failed constitution, hardly comes as a surprise, but it does raise some interesting questions. What would happen after another "no" vote? A third referendum? Or might two nos have the finality of one yes in the European Union's calculus?
This time around European leaders are offering sweeteners to Irish voters. These include guarantees that Ireland won't be forced to give up its military neutrality or abortion ban -- though it's an open question whether such guarantees would be legally binding. They're also offering an assurance that all member states will continue to be represented by a Commissioner in Brussels.
This last pledge reveals the folly of staging revotes on failed treaties, if making a mockery of democracy weren't already enough. Proponents say the Lisbon Treaty is crucial to reforming the creaking institutions of a union that has nearly doubled in size since the last EU pact took effect in 2003. Yet one of the worthiest of the proposed reforms, reducing the number of European Commissioners to a more manageable size, has now been deemed expendable. Meanwhile, Brussels wants to press forward with controversial adjustments such as eliminating national vetoes in a number of policy areas. (...) >>>

Ceske Noviny: "Irish minister condemns parallels drawn by Czech president- press"

Czech President Vaclav Klaus's recent utterances on a visit to Ireland continue to stir passions in the country, with Dick Roche, European Affairs Minister, lashing out at Klaus again on Saturday, newspaper Irish Independent writes on its website today. Roche said the parallel Klaus drew between the anti-EU activists and former Soviet-era anti-communist dissidents was "stomach-churning." During Klaus's visit in Ireland, Irish Foreign Minister Micheal Martin called the parallel drawing "ridiculous, shallow and bogus." Klaus in reaction called Martin's position "hypocrisy" he could not accept.
(...) Klaus recalled that his predecessor in the Czech presidential post, Vaclav Havel, former anti-communist dissident, liked to meet foreign dissidents. "So I will now meet an EU dissident and I regard myself as such as well," said Klaus, a Eurosceptic and Lisbon treaty critic. Roche described Klaus attempts to draw comparisons between the EU and a Communist regime as "particularly odd" given his own history as a "minor apparatchik" during the Communist era in the former Czechoslovakia.

Libertas: "Libertas accepts invitation to meet Sarkozy"

Libertas Chairman Declan Ganley has this afternoon said he has accepted an invitation to meet French President Nicholas Sarkozy. Sarkozy will be hosting a meeting of members of the Yes and No sides from the Lisbon Treaty campaign on Monday."Along with many of my fellow Irish & European citizens, I was offended to hear Sarkozy say that Ireland would have to vote again. Sarkozy himself has denied the people of France a vote on the Lisbon Treaty saying 'if there was a referendum in France, there would be no treaty'. For Sarkozy to tell Ireland to vote again is a shocking indictment of the anti-democratic attitude of some European leaders. As a European, and in particular as current President of the European Council, Sarkozy has a democratic responsibility to respect the will of the Irish people. The Lisbon Treaty is dead, the same formula has now been rejected by the Dutch and by Sarkozy's own people and now by the people of Ireland. (...) On Monday when we meet, I will be asking that he accept that the Irish people have rejected the Lisbon Treaty. Libertas will not participate in any debate on the Lisbon treaty on Monday - that debate ended when the people of Ireland voted no" (...) >>>

Ellian Blogs: an expert witness in defense of Wilders

Ahmadinejad Says Iran Is Ready For Talks With ...Image by USb_cABLE via Flickr
Collating Nazism and Islamism

Those in power in Islamist Iran represent a pure form of political Islam. It is a unapologetic form of Islamofascism, which includes antisemitism. The self-appointed President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad often expresses himself in antisemitic terms. Are there any other functionaries in the Islamic Government like that?

Ayatollah Khamenei is supported by other antisemitic clerics holding an ideology that is apocalyptic in nature. They believe that the appearance of the 12th Imam must be triggered through strife and mayhem (like any other collectivist, Utopian narrative, CT).

Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi is Khamenei's most important supporter. He sits on a great number of Government bodies. In an address on January 5 he elaborated at length on the Jewish question. (...) Yet Mesbah Yazdi's speech sounds strangely familiar. Jog your mind and replace Islam with Arian race. We've heard these words uttered during the thirties of the last century. I don't intend to demonize Mesbah Yazdi.

He is allowed to hate Jews and the state of Israel. Nevertheless, the narrative is the same as Nazi propaganda. It is the style of (Hitler's book, CT) Mein Kampf (which includes Hitler's German Volk victimhood narrative, never to be underestimated as a justification for violent action: "we are under attack!", CT). Geert Wilders MP should subpoena Mesbah Yazdi as an expert witness. Mesbah Yazdi must be questioned about his views on Jews. Are they rooted in the Koran? The proceedings must be broadcast live. Islam will be on trial. (...) >>>

Breaking News From Iran - Mutiny in the Military

Pundits and diplomats have been wondering why the Iranian regime is loath to use the China model against protesters and opponents in the Green Wave movement. The China model stands for an extremely brutal, widespread and violent crack down on the opposition. Well, what does it mean?

Tanks and armed military charging and firing into the crowds. A wave of executions is also included in the model. Applied to Iran that would mean deploying around three in the morning and arresting anyone 'green'.

All means of communication are shut down simultaneously. Citizens will be waking up to an address by the leader who declares the rallies over. Thousands will be executed. Swiftness and brutality is the essence of the China model. Why doesn't Khamenei do that?

He pondered it this summer before he became indisposed. He even gave the order to arrest opposition leader Mousavi. But he withdrew the order when he was told that Iran would explode. But a more important reason may be found in the military themselves. (...) >>>

A Crucial Day for the Iranian Resistance

(...) In an article on Wall Street Journal Ellian explains the unique and specific nature of the Iranian theocracy:

The regime's theological nature gives it a very different perception of reality. Despite the popular unrest and growing rift between the regime and the military and clergy, Ahmadinejad has no reason to see himself as weak or illegitimate. In his world view, bolstered by people such as Ayatollah Yazde, his regime does not rely on the consent of the people or dissident ayatollahs. Instead, it gains its legitimacy by its obedience to Allah. The regime surely fears the people, but controlling the masses serves the greater cause of obedience to Allah and therefore the interests of the people are of no real importance to this regime.
Ellian also has an important post up on Elsevier on events during Ashura on December 27 and today, a crucial day in the resistance against Islamofascism. As it's very lengthy I'll limit the translation to the main points:

Sunday marked the bloodiest Ashura in Iran's history. Ahmadinejad claimed the protests were stoked by the Americans and Israelis. A video shows a police car purposefully careering into the public. More video. (...) >>>

The Women of the Iranian Vanguard

The entire regime is in question. There are many dead and wounded; hundreds of protestors have been arrested. Primarily women.

Protestors have also addressed American foreign policy. Not against the country, but the President: "Obama, Obama, are you with us or with them?"

[Grim video material of street clashes moved to file.]

While Obama has already written two dear-Iranian-leader letters, the people themselves have called on him to support them instead. American foreign policy is called into question.

The world has noticed the role of women in the revolt against the Islamists. Also last week women took the lead. Oxfort University has instituted a philosophy scholarship in the name of Neda.

The Revolutionary Guard (RG) is prepared to crack down hard. A boy in Isfahan was shot to death as he prepared to enter his home.

Also the Basij militia is unleashed on the people. (...) >>>

The West Must Support the Iranian People

(...) Last Friday once again hundreds of thousands of people hit the streets. According to several witnesses Tehran's streets contained a million people and more. The BBC states the people shouted: "Azadi, azadi (freedom); Mousavi, we support you." (...) This is just unbelievable. The people have a political consciousness. Yes, the Americans and the Israelis have nothing to do with the situation in the country. But Russia does. The Russians and the Chinese are loyal allies of the regime. They were among the first to congratulate and acknowledge Ahmadinejad as President. The people know the security forces are trained principally by the Russians. (...) Moscow must understand that if the people succeed in toppling Ahmadinejad's and Khamenei's regime, such dealings will be over. (...)

Well informed sources have told me that on June 15 Rafsanjani took delivery of a letter sent by the Revolutionary Guard's High Command. The letter consisted of eight lines, conveying two messages: (a) There's still a red line that must not to be crossed. (b) This goes for Rafsanjani as well, and if he joins Mousavi, the Revolutionary Guard (RG) will act mercilessly. The letter was signed by Jafari (Supreme Commander of the RG). The letter ended: cc Ayatollah Khamenei. I've never heard of such a thing in my life! Cc the leader. This means that real power is no longer in the hands of Khamenei. In power are a number of very radical ayatollahs and the RG.

I hope Western Governments are aware of that, because it is with these people, and not with Khamenei, that they must negotiate Tehran's nuclear ambitions. (...) The turban tumbled! Isn't that symbolic for the Islamic regime itself? Islamofascism without a turban! Perhaps the end of Iranian Islamism is neigh. (...) >>>

Allah's Sons Keep Up the Killing in Iran

Nega Agha Soltan, who died before the eyes of millions of people, was the first symbol of the Iranian resistance against the Islamic regime. She is now accompanied by a new symbol of innocence: nineteen year old Sohrab Arabi. An innocent young man who went with the Persian, green flow. One morning he said goodbye to his mother. Then he took to the streets to fight for the Republican ideal of liberty. It unavoidably clashed with the Islamic Caliphate. He never returned home.

His mother went to Ewin Prison. She was told her son had been arrested. But last Saturday (July 11) - almost one month later - she learned from Mortazawi, the Officer of Justice of the Revolutionary Court of Tehran - that her son may be dead. As stated, Mortazawi earlier indicated Sohrab had been arrested. She was sent to the Security Department where she was shown the photos of some sixty corpses. Her son was in one of those pictures. Yes, the assassinated Sohrab was one of them. (...)

How many protesters are being killed in Iran by the sons of Allah? The exact figure is unknown. Over five thousand! How many injured? Several thousand. Will it withhold the people from demonstrating? No. Last week, July 9 thousands of people again hit the streets of Tehran, Tabriz, Shiraz, Isfahann, Ardebil, Kurdistan Mas'had and other cities to commemorate the 1999 student uprising. These demonstrations are well documented. How long will they keep it up? No one knows.

(...) We must also remember all the other mothers of missing and murdered children. We must not forget they're fighting for and are being killed for the values we in the West think of as normality. But the mother of Framarz, my uncle's son, was not even allowed to bury her child. My uncle died two days before the elections. He had to mourn his missing child in silence. Now all of Iran is mourning her missing children. Oh, it is unbearable. (...) >>>

Today in Iran: the anniversary of the 1999 student uprising

Ayatollah Khamenei, the supreme sacred and secular leader of Islamic Iran, has closed the file on the rigged elections. This is strange, because every night around 10PM the sky of Tehran is filled with the sounds of "Allahu Akbar, death to the tyrant!"

On the highest echelons of power there's still speculation whether to depose the selfproclaimed President Ahmadinejad and supreme tyrant Ali Khamenei. The regime is split about the way in which Khamenei exerts power.

For the first time in the history of the Islamic Republic there's division and strife between fatwa eligible ayatollahs. A number of respected ayatollahs have fatwahed Ahmadinjad's presidency illegal. And some have declared the actions by the Revolutionay Guard and the paramilitary haram (forbidden). Yet Khamenei declares the protests ended. Khamenei makes a crucial mistake. (...) >>>

A sea of flowers in a desert of death. Remembrance and mourning are the only weapons at the disposal of powerless people. This is our weapon against those in power, who wish to expunge history.

Iran: an Update and an Exposé of the Paramilitary

Iran's security system is violent and totalitarian through and through (...) who are the men atttacking civilians (...) who leads them (...) who protects the regime?

1. Ansar Hezbollah. Shortly after the revolution groups of men came together and called themselves Hezbollah [the party of Allah]. These consisted of scum and ultra religious people. They attacked opponents with knives and other weapons. They made victims everywhere: left, right, liberal intellectuals, and even moderate believers. Hezbollah was above the law and was protected by the leader of the revolution, imam Khomeini. They were refered to as the SA [Sturmabteilung, Storm Troopers] of the regime.

2. The Revolutionaire Guard (RG) was also founded after the revolution for the defense of Islam and the new regime. They too resorted directly under the imam. RG probably consists of 120,000 men of which eighty percent are conscripts. The latter are a security risk for the regime. (...) >>>

Behind the scenes of a popular revolt (narrative)

(...) Dutch-Iranian refugee, pundit and Leiden University lecturer, Afshin Ellian has another great post up at Elsevier. He disects the erratic Obama policies and in an astute analysis calls him "not the President of ethics, but the President of polls". With reference to the 4th of July invitation extended before the Iranian elections and affirmed only last week, Ellian wonders what Obama believes the relationship is between the Islamofascists and "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness"? An excellent question. Obama uninvited the mullahs only when poll figures began to plummet: over sixty percent of Americans disapprove of his Iran policies.

Diplomatic Neutrality is not an Option

Ahmadinejad countered by pointing out that because of his policies, the Americans no longer pushed for regime change. And the Europeans would be willing to strengthen ties with Iran as evidenced by the fact that Europe is Iran's largest trading partner. In other words, foreign policy is the central theme in the discourse.

The regime is pointing the finger at the West for stoking social unrest. A ludicrous accusation: it is rather disingenuous to tell Iranian mothers that their children are acting on the behest of the CIA, Mosad, AIVD and MI5. (...) >>>

The last few days he was offered money and political and economic positions. He and his family were also threatened. But he's still standing, will not break, nobody doubts him.

A Prague Spring for Tehran?

The expenditure in support of terrorist groups is a secret of state. According to the opposition it involves billions of dollars. This money belongs to the Iranian people. Many live under the poverty line.

Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah said in a live television interview that 40 million Iranians voted for Khamenei and therefore for the theocratic system. He also said that "our friends are quarelling over the result, but with Khamenei's wisdom all will be settled in due course.

The Tehran Putch

I want to inform you about what has happened in Tehran over the last couple of days. I got my information from open sources and discussions I had with the people of Tehran. (...)

Last Friday at 10 PM the polls were closing. Just after midnight press agencies IRNA (Islamic Republic News Agency) and Fars (a mouthpiece of the Revolutionary Guard and the Iranian Hezbollah) issued a report that Ahmadinejad has been re-elected President. Around 3 AM some 15 million votes for Ahmadinejad had been counted. A physical impossibility.

Saturday afternoon around 4 PM radio and televion broadcast a message from the leader Khamenei. Even before the electoral committee issued the result, Khamenei congratulated Ahmadinjad on the occasion of his victory. It's apparent that this isn't the actual result of the elections.

The European Union (EU) would do well to protest against the situation. Mousavi spoke of election engineering with good reason. (...) >>>
