Negli ultimi tempi è accaduta una congerie di fatti nuovi, segni evidenti della devoluzione dell’ideologia socialista. Alcuni sono semplicemente evidenti, altri richiedono un po’ di pazienza per essere inquadrati.

PPE e S&D hanno perso nelle elezioni circa quaranta seggi ciascuno, e con essi la maggioranza parlamentare. L’alleanza con le formazioni liberal è possibile, ma nei fatti si sono rese evidenti profonde dilacerazioni all’interno di quei gruppi parlamentari.  Sono tutto tranne che un fronte coeso e compatto.

A far precipitare la situazione è stata la presa di coscienza del Consiglio Europeo di essere l’organo comunitario deliberante, ove un nucleo di undici nazioni ha bocciato clamorosamente i candidati del PPE, Herr Weber, e di S&D, Herr Timmermans.

La nomination di Frau Ursula von der Leyen è stata possibile solo dopo che Frau Merkel in persona è andata a piatire i voti del PiS, con una lunga telefonata prima con Mr Morawiecki e quindi con Mr Kaczyński.

Gli identitari sovranisti hanno raccolto la sfida convogliando i voti del PiS, di Fidesz e del M5S su Frau von der Leyen, assicurandole una strettissima maggioranza, a monito di quanto potrebbe accadere in futuro.

I liberal socialisti hanno esperito una bruciante débâcle, proprio nel momento in cui credevano di aver ottenuto la vittoria totale.

Al momento attuale dovrebbe essere chiaro che i liberal socialisti non sono tecnicamente in grado di perseguire il loro programma, né nel Consiglio Europeo né in europarlamento. La loro dottrina basata sull’immigrazione selvaggia ed illegale, sugli lgbt, sulle ngo, sul ‘clima’ e sul rule of law troverà grandissime e comprovate resistenze.

Adesso sembrerebbero cercare una qualche via di fuga. Un po’ come la volpe sotto l’uva.

Che Kaczyński, Orban e Salvini abbiano posto delle condizioni dovrebbe essere cosa ovvia.

Nulla è trapelato e Frau von der Leyen è quanto mai abbottonata, ma questo editoriale del Deutsche Welle la conta davvero molto lunga.

Questa è la testata ufficiale del Governo tedesco, edita in 34 lingua, a direzione socialdemocratica di strettissima osservanza: gente per la quale Lenin era un borghese capitalista, adoratori di Mr Soros.

I suoi articoli veementi contro Polonia, Ungheria,Romania ed Italia erano un concentrato tossico di odio verso gli identitari sovranisti, rei di non volersi sottomettere alla loro volontà egemone.

Polonia ed Ungheria erano i suoi obiettivi preferiti, a causa delle riforme dell’ordinamento giudiziario. Come minimo, li definivano ‘illiberali’, ‘antidemocratici’, ‘totalitari’. ‘nazisti’: in poche parole gente che avrebbe dovuto essere scacciata malo modo dall’Unione Europea.

Kontrordine, Kompagni!!

«However, Warsaw refuses to be told what to do by politicians in Berlin and Brussels. This has little to do with politics; it’s more of a psychological issue.»

«As Germany’s minister of defense, she took the eastern countries and their concerns — fears of Russian expansion, for example — very seriously.»

«Many now fear this means von der Leyen will allow herself to be instrumentalized by the populists, and will take an indulgent view of their controversial judicial reforms»

«The incoming Commission president is making use of the change of personnel to establish her own way of dealing with the constitutional renegades.

«The real surprise is not, in fact, her approach to the eastern states, but a proposal she has made: Von der Leyen has advocated a monitoring system to scrutinize all member states and enforce the rule of law»

«She wants to avoid the impression that one part of Europe is essentially criticizing the other.

This is indeed the impression that many have in Eastern Europe. The general opinion there is that western states have serious legal deficiencies too, but they don’t want to discuss them«»

«Germany is frequently mentioned in this regard. Judges are elected to the German Constitutional Court by both the parliament and the representative assembly of the federal states — the Bundestag and the Bundesrat. In practice, though, the two main political parties, the CDU and the SPD, essentially take turns to nominate a candidate, who then obtains a majority.»

«But if all European countries are to be on an equal footing when discussing the rule of law, they should all also be allowed to question this. It would be helpful if the government were to explain the reasoning to those who don’t understand it calmly»

I giornalisti del Deutsche Welle hanno voltato in un attosecondo la gualdrappa, nel vano tentativo che ci si dimentichie chi erano e fossero. Ma per loro malasorte la gente ha ottima memoria.

Il cuore del discorso è questo:

«Germany is frequently mentioned in this regard. Judges are elected to the German Constitutional Court by both the parliament and the representative assembly of the federal states — the Bundestag and the Bundesrat. In practice, though, the two main political parties, the CDU and the SPD, essentially take turns to nominate a candidate, who then obtains a majority.»

Polonia, Ungheria, Romania e molti altri stati sono stati demonizzati perché avevano operato delle riforme del sistema giudiziario sulla falsariga di quello tedesco. Contro Polonia ed Ungheria è persino iniziata l’azione a mente dell’art sette, ossia la cacciata dall’Unione Europea.

Due pesi e due misure.

Se la Germania nomina in via politica giudici costituzionali nelle persone di chiara posizione politica sarebbe manovra altamente democratica e perfettamente in linea con i principi ispiratori dell’Unione. Ma se Polonia ed Ungheria facessero ciò sarebbe la lampante evidenza di quanto quei governi siano totalitari, dittatoriali, nazionalsocialisti, e via quant’altro.

Vedremo con il tempo quanto la Ursula von der Leyen saprà gestire la situazione.

Pacta servanda sunt.


Deutsche Welle. 2019-07-21. Opinion: Open discussions, not ingratiation

The president-elect of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, wants a more objective debate about the rule of law in Europe. But that doesn’t mean she’ll cozy up to the populists, says DW’s Rosalia Romaniec.

*

The European Commission and countries such as Poland and Hungary have been arguing for years now about issues related to the rule of law. The EU’s executive body has been critical, for example, of measures that restrict the independence of the judiciary and the media. So far, though, little has been achieved: There hasn’t been much concrete progress at the political level.

Only one legal body — the European Court of Justice — has managed to induce the Polish government to revise some controversial decisions. Its judgments are respected. However, Warsaw refuses to be told what to do by politicians in Berlin and Brussels. This has little to do with politics; it’s more of a psychological issue.

One person who has never fallen into the trap of criticizing or talking down to her fellow leaders is Angela Merkel. Although their positions often differ, the German chancellor always manages to strike the right tone with her Eastern European counterparts. No western politician is more respected in the east than she is.

Clearly, Ursula von der Leyen wants to build on this. As Germany’s minister of defense, she took the eastern countries and their concerns — fears of Russian expansion, for example — very seriously. This was one reason why delegates from Poland’s national-conservative PiS party didn’t find it hard to vote for her as president of the European Commission.

Fresh approach

Many now fear this means von der Leyen will allow herself to be instrumentalized by the populists, and will take an indulgent view of their controversial judicial reforms. This idea, however, is simply nonsense.

The incoming Commission president is making use of the change of personnel to establish her own way of dealing with the constitutional renegades. If she were immediately to start lecturing her partners in the east, or threatening them with cuts to their EU funding before even sitting down at the table with them, she wouldn’t get any further than her predecessors. And that’s not far enough for a Europe that must work together to resolve not only constitutional deficiencies, but other problems as well.

Von der Leyen hasn’t ruled out taking the toughest action, like cutting subsidies, as a final resort, but she’s not going to do this right now. She’ll wait for the pending decision from the European Court of Justice before upping the political pressure — especially as she doesn’t actually take office until November.

Monitoring for all member states

The real surprise is not, in fact, her approach to the eastern states, but a proposal she has made: Von der Leyen has advocated a monitoring system to scrutinize all member states and enforce the rule of law. She wants to avoid the impression that one part of Europe is essentially criticizing the other.

This is indeed the impression that many have in Eastern Europe. The general opinion there is that western states have serious legal deficiencies too, but they don’t want to discuss them. Germany is frequently mentioned in this regard. Judges are elected to the German Constitutional Court by both the parliament and the representative assembly of the federal states — the Bundestag and the Bundesrat. In practice, though, the two main political parties, the CDU and the SPD, essentially take turns to nominate a candidate, who then obtains a majority. The idea is to ensure that the country’s highest judges represent different political positions.

But if all European countries are to be on an equal footing when discussing the rule of law, they should all also be allowed to question this. It would be helpful if the government were to explain the reasoning to those who don’t understand it calmly, matter-of-factly. A European monitoring system would help with this. “Nobody’s perfect,” von der Leyen commented. She may well have a point.
