Front Nieuws – The Epic Collapse is Near + Up to 60 MP’s Possibly Involved in EU Corruption Scandal + The Known Facts about the Corruption Scandal in the EU Parliament
The Epic Collapse is Near
What’s wrong with the world? I will list the possibilities… The Western action against Ukraine is a failure, a foolish miscalculation that was obvious from the start. It has only exposed the pathetic dependence of our European allies on Russian oil and gas that without that gas their economies will be destroyed forever, writes James Howard Kunstler .
The Russians will likely end up with control of the Black Sea and also end up with Ukraine’s breadbasket. So now Europe will starve and freeze.
Did they really want to commit suicide this way? Do the people of Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the other countries just want to languish in oblivion? Probably not. Rather, now is the time of overthrown governments.
Europe is suddenly in a hopeless mess with governments falling like pine needles, industries shutting down for lack of fuel, and citizens rebelling against the insane dictates of the World Economic Forum (WEF) to drastically reduce livestock and agriculture to close.
Cut his own Throat
This, of course, after the governments of Euroland slit their own throats by sanctioning themselves out of Russian oil and gas.
This is especially bizarre in Germany, the region’s largest economy, which only this year finally recognized and admitted that its “green energy” policy was a complete failure, forcing them to shut down large wind turbine installations and resort to to electricity production with coal.
Well done, Greens. Your idiotic policies are forcing economies to turn to coal, the dirtiest fossil fuel. Of course, the Merkel and then Olaf Scholz governments have turned out to be the most hypocritical idiots.
The globalists’ stooges implanted everywhere are likely to be overthrown. I can envision a scenario in which NATO and the Euro-Union will dissolve in impotent disgrace, and the various countries involved will have to renegotiate their fate, abandoning US advice and coercion.
They could even become opponents of the US, rather than allies. Have you forgotten that not so long ago we fought two wars against Germany? And all those countries have been fighting each other since the Bronze Age.
History is A Joker
It may seem unbelievable, but history never ceases to remind us what a prankster she is. In this Fourth Revolution a strange and terrible reversal has occurred.
Somehow Putin’s Russia will be left to represent what’s left of the international legal order as Western democracies sink deeper into a quagmire of deranged despotism. Either way, they are too busy waging war against their own people to even pretend to be assisting their Ukrainian proxies.
We must not forget that “Joe Biden” has been cramming nearly $60 billion into Ukraine’s money laundering machine since February, which will only spew hallucinated capital back into increasingly disordered financial markets.
Look: Indices are up all over the world this morning. And why? Because the global economy is so good? I do not think so.
Meanwhile, there are reports of massive amounts of weapons supplied by the West appearing on the black market. Apparently some Ukrainians even sell these weapons to the Russians!
An Epic Collapse is Imminent
An epic collapse is imminent. Every place in the world is about to collapse and some countries on the periphery are already going down. Sri Lanka is broke and out of gas after being launched as a WEF experiment in a low-carbon eco-state.
Panama is in turmoil over extreme government corruption, food scarcity and the after-effects of a particularly severe two-year COVID lockdown that the rest of the world has barely heard about — perhaps because China has operational control of the vital Panama Canal and the CCP has operational control has about the World Health Organization, which has set up Panama as a lockdown lab project.
In the US, we must brace ourselves for the fall for the blatant desperation of the claqueurs behind “Joe Biden.” Their propaganda machine will probably go all out for climate change and renewed COVID hysteria.
There are always heat waves at the height of summer. CNN pretends it’s shocking that Texas has high temperatures. Really? Have you never experienced that?
Meanwhile, behind the news of new Omicron subvariants, vaccine injuries and deaths are piling up, and the CDC pretends not to notice. They just lie, as usual. You are used to it. You act like it’s to be expected. You have forgotten that it was not always so. Soon it will matter.
Help is Coming, in a Few Years
Meanwhile, the November midterm elections are only a few months away. The Democrats are in a panic that they will be hit at the ballot box. Well, here’s a prediction: Another pandemic will be declared in early October, complete with lockdowns, as Google teams up with Facebook to launch a new phone voice app. They will say it is all necessary “to save our democracy”.
Miraculously, the Democrats then win 30 more seats in the House of Representatives and five in the Senate. Then we enter the new frontier of the Green New Deal and Build Back Better. In other words, the US is heading for total collapse.
Speaking of “Joe Biden,” whose idea was it to send the wind-up doll president to Saudi Arabia? I can only imagine what happened privately in the room with “JB” and MBS (Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman), the virtual ruler of the oil-soaked desert country. And wasn’t that fist “handshake” just priceless?
What concessions did “Joe Biden” get from the Saudis? Saudi Arabia graciously agreed to increase its oil production in the period 2025-2027 – a real triumph for US diplomacy. Very nice. But that’s not much use to us in the short term, is it?
Folks, Get Ready
And now even the ground under the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is shifting as China’s extravagant matrix of urban building, mortgage debt and bank fraud shakes the financial system to its very foundations. What a surprise!
The CCP has succeeded in bribing politicians around the world, infiltrating governments and cultural institutions in every country, and misusing the media for its purposes, but the CCP is apparently losing its grip on the Chinese people, who has had enough of being followed and cheated in lockdown.
The tanks are out. This is not the same movie as Tiananmen Square in 1989. This is the bankruptcy of the CCP, an epic event that will sweep through the “global south,” plunging Africa into famine and chaos, and South America into yet another rotation of elites.
Pretty soon it will be every country for itself in this key event of the fourth upheaval (aka the long state of emergency). The unity of the world is a mirage, along with all those ridiculous narratives about world government.
And in every country for itself, it will be every community, every family, every human being for itself, until everyday life can be painfully reorganized from the ground up.
Folks, get ready.
Up to 60 MP’s Possibly Involved in EU Corruption Scandal
As many as 60 MEPs, mostly socialists, could be in the crosshairs of investigators as the European Parliament corruption scandal involving Qatar appears to be on the rise, Breitbart reports .
The ongoing corruption scandal in the European Parliament may involve many more MEPs than Greek socialist Eva Kaili and former Italian MP Pier Antonio Panzeri, both of whom were arrested last week, with Belgian investigators seizing €1.5 million from their homes .
The pair are said to have taken large sums of money from the governments of Qatar and Morocco, with MEP Kaili’s father being caught with a suitcase full of cash at the Sofitel hotel in Brussels.
As many as 60 MPs, most reportedly members of the Socialists and Reformists (S&D) group, may also be involved in the alleged corruption as part of a much larger network, Italian newspaper Il Giornale reports .
Belgian prosecutors have also named Abderrahim Atmoun, Morocco’s ambassador to Poland, as a person of interest in the case.
Atmoun is said to have been at the origin of gifts to Mr. Panzeri, his wife Maria Dolores Colleoni and his daughter Silvia Panzeri.
The family is said to have used a credit card linked to a person the family refers to as “the giant”, although it is unclear whether or not Ambassador Artmoun is the “giant” referred to by Panzeri and his family.
The communication between the family members was made public as part of an extradition request where Panzeri’s wife mentioned that the family had paid a whopping $100,000 for the Christmas holiday last year.
Soros wants the EU to stop inancing Hungary to make this Country A Threat Example
Both Panzeri’s wife and daughter are in Italian custody after being arrested on December 8 and are likely to be extradited to Belgium where they face up to five years in prison.
Greek MP Eva Kaili, meanwhile, has been relieved of her position as Vice President of the European Parliament, but has denied taking money from the Qatari government.
Greek prosecutors announced on Thursday that they too will investigate Kaili’s activities, including allegations of bribery and money laundering. Economic prosecutor Christos Bardakis has put two assistant prosecutors on the case, but Greece will only file charges if no charges are filed in Belgium.

The Known Facts about the Corruption Scandal in the EU Parliament
The corruption scandal in the European Parliament has been making headlines for several days now. Here are the known facts at a glance.
The fact that the corruption scandal in the European Parliament is making headlines has a “Dirty Taste”, as corruption and conflicts of interest are by no means rare in Brussels, but are mostly ignored by the media. The most prominent example is the head of the EU Commission Ursula von der Leyen, because that lady, for example, transferred more than 70 billion to Pfizer – without a quote, of course, but agreed with the head of Pfizer in a private Whats-App chat. And – what a coincidence – Uschi von der Leyen deleted the chat history in violation of all government correspondence archiving rules. But the press does not see this as a scandal worth mentioning, writes Thomas Röper .
It also doesn’t bother anyone that Uschi’s husband, purely coincidentally, has been medical director of a pharmaceutical company since 2020 , which – quite coincidentally – also makes money from mRNA products that Uschi has made socially acceptable in the course of the Corona pandemic.
Apparently in the EU it is not a problem if someone engages in nepotism where family members earn money, as long as it is “the right people” who benefit from it. The influence of lobbyists who “help” with a lot of money to draft EU laws that subsequently generate billions for their clientele is also not shunned in Brussels, as the example of Blackrock shows, because the investment fund has also received dubious benefits from Ursula von der Leyen .
And the fact that the head of the ECB was legally convicted in France of negligent use of taxpayers ‘ money for giving half a billion euros to a French company didn’t hurt anyone when she was appointed.
Qatar does not seem to be among those allowed to do such things with impunity in Brussels. In any case, the current corruption scandal is making headlines, which is why I am reporting the known facts here. The Russian news agency TASS has bundled them and I have translated the TASS article .
What is Known about the Corruption Scandal in the European Parliament?
Last week, all the attention of European politicians turned to the corruption case of European Parliamentarians suspected of taking bribes and trying to illegally influence the course of the EU. Arrests, house searches, expulsions from the party and the EU Parliament, ties to Qatar and Hungary’s ironic reaction. Everything you need to know about the EU Parliament corruption scandal can be found in the TASS report
On December 9, a sensational corruption scandal broke out in the European Parliament. On that day, the Belgian police carried out a large-scale operation, conducted dozens of house searches and arrested four people, including Eva Kaili, Vice President of the European Parliament. According to the media, all suspects are suspected of bribing and attempting to influence EU policy towards Qatar in the context of the preparations for the 2022 World Cup. In particular, they allegedly tried to influence other parliamentarians by handing them large sums of money and valuables. giving gifts, spreading positive reviews about Qatar and covering up the country’s human rights violations. The case has already been dubbed “Qatar-gate” by the media.
According to the French press agency (AFP), a house search was carried out at Kili in Brussels on the evening of December 9. A source at the agency clarified that she could not use her parliamentary immunity because she was arrested “on the spot”. The house searches in Brussels continued the following days. At the same time, French police sealed off a number of offices at the seat of the EU Parliament in Strasbourg. Belgian media reported that approximately two million euros in cash were found and seized during the house searches. According to the Greek newspaper Efimerida ton Syntakton, bags with a total of 160,000 euros were found in Kili’s house, including money that her father was carrying in a suitcase at the time of his arrest.
Meanwhile, Kili’s lawyer Michalis Dimitrakopoulos said in a written statement that Kili was following official EU policy towards Qatar as directed by EU Parliament head Roberta Metsola and initiated by EU chief diplomat Josep Borrell. According to the lawyer, Kili “didn’t know about the existence of the money” found in her flat and feels “betrayed” by her colleagues in the EU parliament.
However, the EU prosecutor’s office announced on December 15 that Kili had become a suspect in two corruption cases in the EU parliament within two weeks. But this had nothing to do with Qatar and the 2022 World Cup, he said. This concerns in particular unjustified payments to the staff of Members of the European Parliament. According to the authority, the waiver of the immunity of the two Greek MPs Eva Kili and Maria Spiraki of the European People’s Party has been requested.
The Epic Collapse is Near
The Greek Public Prosecution Service announced on December 15 that it had launched its own investigation into Kili to determine, independently of the investigation in Belgium, whether bribery and money laundering had taken place directly in Greece. If such violations are found, Kili will be prosecuted in Greece.
EU Relations with Qatar after the Scandal
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz called for this corruption scandal not to be linked to relations with Qatar in general. He described the corruption allegations as “A Separate Issue to be Resolved in its Own Right” . The chancellor said it is important to investigate the allegations against those allegedly bribed and those who bribed them.
EU oreign Policy spokesman Peter Stano said the EU has not summoned Qatar’s ambassador or sought official statements from the country in connection with the corruption investigation. “The investigation is Ongoing, it is being Carried Out by the Belgian Authorities and we are Waiting for the Results. When we have the results, we can take the Necessary Sction,” he said.
Meanwhile, Ursula von der Leyen, head of the EU Commission, said the EU Commission intends to “thoroughly review” all contacts of its staff with Qatar . She described Qatar as an important partner for the EU to offset gas supplies from Russia. Nevertheless, she said, the EU has always “spoken out” about human rights violations in the country.
On December 13, MEPs voted to end Kili’s mandate as Vice President of the European Parliament over the corruption scandal.
Parliament President Roberta Metsola made this decision three days earlier.
At the same time it became known that Kili had been expelled from the Greek PASOK, the Movement for Change party. According to the AMNA, this decision was taken by leader Nikos Androulakis “In response to recent events and the investigation by the Belgian authorities into corruption by European parliamentarians”.
Responses to the Corruption Scandal
Ursula von der Leyen described the allegations against Kili as a matter of trust in the EU institutions. She said that the Union needs the highest standards and structures for ethical oversight, in cooperation with all Union institutions.
Roberta Metsola promised that the EU Parliament would look into protecting whistleblowers who publish information about corruption and that it would review the rules for MEPs to interact with non EU countries. “This is A Serious Blow to the Reputation of our Institution and to our Democracy. I will Immediately begin to Restore Confidence,” she said. Metsola clarified that only a “A Small Group of People” undermine the credibility of the European Parliament.
Hungary has reacted emotionally and actively to the corruption scandal. This is mainly due to the fact that the European Parliament recently reprimanded the Hungarian government for not doing enough against corruption. MEPs have therefore recommended that the EU leadership freeze more than € 13 billion in EU funds owed to Hungary.
With the corruption scandal being discussed worldwide, Prime Minister Viktor Orban posted on his Twitter account: “Good Morning, Sear MP‘s!” . He accompanied the post with a photo of smiling European politicians with the caption: “The EU Parliament is Seeply Concerned about Corruption in Hungary.”
He later poked fun at the EU Parliament again by tweeting photos taken by Belgian police showing physical evidence in the corruption case against Kili, including large sums of money. “This is What the Rule of Law looks like in Brussels,” Orban said.
