Macron, ovvero il delirio di onnipotenza. Riunione di Parigi.

Giuseppe Sandro Mela.

Macron 0801

Si è tenuta la riunione di Parigi, fortemente voluta da Mr Macron, anche se ci si è dimenticati di almeno invitare il presidente finlandese di turno dell’Unione Europea. Una mancanza di stile caratteristica del presidente francese.

*

In questa riunione Mr Macron ha ribadito il piano francogermanico sui migranti:

– Tutto dovrebbe proseguire come prima;

– L’Italia dovrebbe aprire i porti e tenersi i migranti;

– I migranti sarebbero poi ripartiti nell’Unione.

*

Il Ministro Salvini era volutamente assente.

2019-07-23__Salvini__001

L’errore dovrebbe essere evidente. Date le costumanze di Mr Macron, di una ‘dama di compagnia’ certo non se ne cale: sarebbe stato più appropriato dire ‘paggetto‘ o qualcosa di simile.

*

Sussiste però una discrepanza di comunicati.

«[Il presidente francese Emmanuel Macron] raccoglie l’adesione di 14 Stati Ue ad un “meccanismo di solidarietà” per ripartire le persone salvate in mare, con un’indicazione indigesta per il titolare del Viminale: lo sbarco deve avvenire nel porto più vicino»

Essendo l’Unione Europea composta da 28 stati, raccogliere l’adesione di quattordici nazioni non dovrebbe permettere di parlare a nome di tutti. Non sarebbe nemmeno la maggioranza.

Poi, invece, si legge sull’articolo della Bbc:

Eight EU nations agree migrants deal, France says

«France says eight EU countries have agreed to share the resettlement of migrants rescued in the Mediterranean – but Italy is not one of them.

President Emmanuel Macron says another six nations backed in principle a Franco-German plan at talks in Paris.

He says he will not agree to releasing EU structural funds to countries that refuse to share the burden.

Italy, which has been at the forefront of the migrant influx in the EU, snubbed the talks.

Speaking after Monday’s talks attended by EU interior and foreign ministers, Mr Macron said: “The conclusion of this morning’s meeting is that 14 member states have given their approval to the Franco-German document.

“Of those 14, eight have enacted their co-operation, and their participation in the stable mechanism which would allow the commissioner to act on requests and the response of the eight member states in the necessary spirit of solidarity.”

Mr Macron provided no details of the agreed deal.

The eight countries are Croatia, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Lithuania, Luxembourg and Portugal.

The six EU nations that have backed the deal in principle have not been named.»

*

Cerchiamo di ragionare.

– Questa riunione di Parigi era informale, e di conseguenza non può deliberare nulla;

– “14 member states have given their approval to the Franco-German document”;

– “Of those 14, eight have enacted their co-operation …. The eight countries are Croatia, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Lithuania, Luxembourg and Portugal»

– “The six EU nations that have backed the deal in principle have not been named”

Le quattordici nazioni sono otto: otto su ventotto apparirebbe essere un po’ pochino.

Spicca l’assenza dei paesi scandinavi, dell’Olanda, della Spagna, della Grecia e dei paesi dell’est europeo.

Vedremo se Mr Macron sarà in grado di ottenere la maggioranza qualificata necessaria per un decisione nel Consiglio Europeo, ma se la base di partenza sono otto stati la cosa sembrerebbe essere davvero difficile.

Nota.

Il Santo Padre può nominare cardinali in pectore, ossia porporati il nome dei quali resta segreto.

Ma Mr Macron non è il Santo Padre.


Ansa. 2019-07-23. Migranti: Macron attacca Salvini, 14 Stati Ue con noi

Attacca il ministro dell’Interno Matteo Salvini, assente “ingiustificato” alla riunione informale di Parigi sui migranti e raccoglie l’adesione di 14 Stati Ue ad un “meccanismo di solidarietà” per ripartire le persone salvate in mare, con un’indicazione indigesta per il titolare del Viminale: lo sbarco deve avvenire nel porto più vicino. Il presidente francese Emmanuel Macron illustra la sua soluzione sul dossier migranti, aprendo a un nuovo scontro con l’Italia. La replica di Salvini non si fa attendere: la riunione “è stata un flop” e “noi non prendiamo ordini da Macron”. Le posizioni si erano già cristallizzate al vertice dei ministri dell’Interno di Helsinki la settimana prossima; da una parte l’asse Parigi-Berlino con una bozza di documento che apriva alla redistribuzione tra i Paesi europei dei migranti soccorsi, fermo restando che questi ultimi devono sbarcare nel “porto più vicino”: dall’altra Italia e Malta, fermamente contrarie al principio che le condannerebbe, nelle parole del ministro, “ad essere l’hotspot dell’Europa”. Con queste premesse Salvini ha così disertato l’appuntamento di ieri nella capitale francese, inviando una delegazione tecnica del Viminale con il preciso mandato di ‘affondare’ i tentativi di arrivare a un documento condiviso.

Alla fine Macron deplora gli esponenti politici assenti (“non si guadagna mai nulla non partecipando”) e porta a casa l’accordo di 14 Stati “volontari” pronti a ripartirsi in modo sistematico i migranti soccorsi in mare, senza dover avviare ogni volta complesse trattative dopo il salvataggio. Resta però fermo, ha sottolineato il presidente, che “quando una nave lascia le acque della Libia e si trova in acque internazionali con rifugiati a bordo deve trovare rifugio nel porto più vicino. E’ una necessità giuridica e pratica. Non si possono far correre rischi a donne e uomini in situazioni di vulnerabilità”.

Non ci sta ovviamente Salvini che spara ad alzo zero verso Parigi: la riunione francese, sostiene, “è stata un errore di forma e di sostanza. Nella forma, perché convocata con poco preavviso e in modo assolutamente irrituale visto che siamo nel semestre di presidenza finlandese. Nella sostanza, perché ha ribadito che l’Italia dovrebbe continuare a essere il campo profughi dell’Europa”. Il vertice, aggiunge, “si è rivelato un flop ed è stato ampiamente disertato dai ministri europei. L’Italia ha rialzato la testa, non prende ordini e non fa la dama di compagnia: se Macron vuole discutere di immigrati venga pure a Roma”.

Il progetto di Mr Salvini sta realizzandosi.

Già essere riuscito a coagulare il 23% delle intenzioni di voto per le elezioni europee dovrebbe essere un grande risultato.

Ma si tenga conto che in europarlamento andranno a sedersi anche gli inglesi del Brexit Party, i polacchi del PiS,  gli ungheresi del Fidesz, i rumeni ed altri ancora.

Non è sicuramente la maggioranza, ma sarà ben difficile non tenerne conto: votano anche loro.

Tutto al momento è fluido, ma il gruppo europarlamentare di Salvini si prospetta essere il secondo e, se la sorte assistesse, potrebbe financo scalzare il partito popolare.

Spitzenkandidat. Bene per eleggere Juncker, male per eleggere un identitario.

Se questi dati si confermassero, sarebbe davvero una gran bella beffa!


Deutsche Welle. 2019-04-20. France’s far-right National Rally joins Salvini’s European alliance

Marine Le Pen has thrown her weight behind Salvini’s new pan-European right-wing bloc. So far the group has garnered support from nationalist parties in Austria, Germany, Denmark, Estonia and Finland.

*

France’s right-wing National Rally party formally joined a new alliance of far-right forces in Europe on Friday. The populist coalition, spearheaded by Italy’s anti-immigrant interior minister and deputy prime minister Matteo Salvini, was formed to unite and strengthen disparate right-wing parties ahead of critical EU elections next month.

“Heartfelt thanks to National Rally leader Marine Le Pen and our historic friends and allies of the National Rally for joining the Milan manifesto ‘Towards a Europe of Common Sense,’” Salvini tweeted.

Salvini, the leader of Italy’s League party, announced the launch of the pan-European far-right faction earlier this month at a press conference where he called the EU “a nightmare, not a dream” and vowed to reform the bloc.

The group, dubbed the European Alliance of Peoples and Nations (EAPN), has already attracted support from:

– Alternative for Germany (AfD)

– Austria’s Freedom Party (FPÖ)

– The Danish People’s Party,

– Finland’s Finns Party

– The Conservative People’s Party of Estonia (EKRE).

The move comes days after Le Pen renounced her support of France leaving the European Union in a ‘Frexit’ in favor of reforming the European project from the inside. Her announcement came just ahead of a meeting of European far-right leaders in Prague on Thursday.

European far-right parties are currently split between three different groups in the European Parliament. If the parties were to merge, they would hold 173 out of 751 seats in the EU parliamentary assembly, or 23%, which would make them the second-largest bloc in the European Parliament, according to the latest poll of polls released by the EU assembly.

Italy’s hard-line interior minister and France’s far-right leader are cementing their longtime alliance ahead of Europe-wide elections next month and said they will press for like-minded candidates in Europe to join their “family.”

Matteo Salvini and Marine Le Pen discussed work, family and environmental protection as major themes in the upcoming vote, which will determine the makeup of the European Parliament in Brussels, Salvini’s office said.

They met on Friday in Paris ahead of the G-7 meeting of interior ministers. Both Le Pen’s National Rally party and Salvini’s League have railed against the power wielded by the European Union’s governing body, especially when it comes to immigration.

Both parties — as well as others on Europe’s right — could make gains in the late May elections, according to recent polling.

Mrs Ursula von der Leyen. Ora attacca bega con la Polonia.

Giuseppe Sandro Mela.

2017-11-05__von_Leyden Masonry.

Mrs Ursula von der Leyden ha un debole per i “masonry works”


«Il silenzio dà alle donne la grazia che loro si addice.»

Sofocle. Aice.


Mrs Ursula von der Leyen sarebbe stata una perfetta ierodula al tempio di Mylitta, con gran sollievo altrui perché nessuno le avrebbe mai buttato la fatidica monetina.

La nostra Mrs Ursula von der Leyen, classe 1958, laurea in medicina nel 1987, Dottorato nel 1991.

Proprio la sua tesi di dottorato suscita molti dubbi:

«tre delle 70 pagine contengono tra il 50 e il 75 per cento di testo plagiato, mentre cinque pagine più del 75 per cento».

*

«Prima di lei, nel 2011, Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, anch’egli titolare della Difesa, e nel 2013 il ministro dell’istruzione Annette Schavan, avevano rassegnato le dimissioni dopo l’annullamento dei loro titoli»

Ma Mrs von der Leyen si è scelta un ottimo padrino, che noi deferentemente salutiamo augurandogli lunga e prospera vita, per cui è rimasta ministro della difesa.

*

«she spoke to German public broadcaster ARD, promising on-the-ground investigations concerning cases of abuse, sexual degradation, harassment and humiliation among Bundeswehr ranks …. the German army has an attitude problem, and it has apparently weak leadership at different levels»

*

«Representatives of the German armed forces association have responded by saying, “If Mrs. von der Leyen says there is a leadership problem, then one must naturally say: leadership goes from the top down.”»

*

«The German army is investigating 275 suspected cases of right-wing extremism within its ranks, according to an answer provided by the defense ministry in response to a parliamentary question»

*

Traduzione dal politichese al linguaggio corrente: 275 militari sono sospettati di non condividere le opinioni del Ministro della Difesa, Mrs Ursula von der Leyen.

Ne è nata una bega che ancora adesso sobbolle nel calderone della Bundeswehr.

* * * * * * *

Adesso Mrs von der Leyen, in perfetto stile teutone, cerca di allargare il raggio della propria impopolarità, prendendosela con la Polonia, nazione di gente mite, mansueta e remissiva.

«Germany on Saturday sought to defuse a diplomatic row with Poland, saying a call by the German defense minister to support a “democratic resistance” in the neighboring country had been taken out of context.»

*

«The Polish government, whose judiciary reform has been met with youth protests and legal action from the European Union, had accused German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen of interference after she called for supporting “the healthy democratic resistance of the young generation” in Poland»

*

«Mrs von der Leyen has emphasized that the EU is an inclusive process, which is about securing and consolidating the common values of the EU and dealing with all positions.»

*

«Precisely this healthy democratic resistance of the young people, also there in Poland, must be supported»

*

Resistenza?

Il termine “resistance” è utilizzato per designare il movimento dei partigiani polacchi contro il regime di occupazione hitleriano.

Molto forte, specie sulle labbra di un ministro tedesco, per indicare nel caso opposizione democratica al governo in carica.

Né si potrebbe dire errore dovuto alla scarsa padronanza dell’inglese: Mrs von der Leyen è stata per cinque anni a Stanford, California.

*

I polacchi si sono imbufaliti.

Giusto qualche giorno or sono Mr Macron aveva proclamato:

«I believe in the sovereignty of states, and therefore, just as I don’t accept being lectured on how to govern my country, I don’t lecture others».

Ecco cosa scrive Radio Poland.

Poland demands explanations over German minister’s words

«Officials in Warsaw have demanded explanations after the German defence minister suggested it was necessary to support the “resistance of the young generation” in Poland.

The Polish defence minister has issued instructions to summon the German defence attaché in Warsaw over the statement, and Poland’s foreign minister described the remark as an unacceptable attempt by a German politician to meddle in Poland’s internal affairs.

“On November 3, Defence Minister Antoni Macierewicz, in response to a statement by German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen, instructed Col. Tomasz Kowalik, Director of the [Polish defence ministry’s] Department of Military Foreign Affairs, to summon the German Defence Attache for explanations,” the Polish defence ministry said in a statement.

Speaking to German broadcaster ZDF, von der Leyen on Thursday said her children had been studying in Poland as part of the European Union’s Erasmus student exchange programme at a time when there was a power shift in Warsaw. She added that it was important to support the “healthy, democratic resistance of the young generation” in Poland.

“Our task is to maintain the discourse, to argue with Poland and Hungary,” von der Leyen also said, as quoted by Poland’s PAP state news agency.

Referring to von der Leyen’s words, Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski said her statement was a case of explicitly “admitting that the German side is interfering in political life in Poland.”

Waszczykowski added: “For the last two years we have been hearing from German politicians that they are neutral and that whatever is being said in the local [German] media is just independent publications that the German authorities have no influence on.”

Waszczykowski also said he would make efforts — “in a gentle way, because we remain neighbours and friends” — to ensure German officials “explain why such unacceptable words are spoken publicly.”

“We hope it’s just a slip of the tongue that can happen to a politician,” he said, as quoted by the wPolityce news service. “We will give [the German defence minister] a chance to take these words back without creating some kind of diplomatic incident.”»

I tedeschi hanno la mentalità degli sfasciacarrozze.

La loro capacità diplomatica è nettamente inferiore a quella di Brenno.

Sono eccellenti nell’arte di trovarsi i nemici.

E con una Bundeskanzlerin azzoppata ne vedremo delle belle.

Nota.

La riforma della giustizia polacca ne renderebbe strutture e criteri di nomina simili a quela tedesca.


Reuters. 2017-11-04. Germany seeks to calm Poland’s outrage over minister’s call for ‘resistance’

BERLIN/WARSAW (Reuters) – Germany on Saturday sought to defuse a diplomatic row with Poland, saying a call by the German defense minister to support a “democratic resistance” in the neighboring country had been taken out of context.

*

The Polish government, whose judiciary reform has been met with youth protests and legal action from the European Union, had accused German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen of interference after she called for supporting “the healthy democratic resistance of the young generation” in Poland.

But a spokesman for von der Leyen said the comments had been misinterpreted and the minister had instead praised Poland’s achievements since the fall of communism and called for a more inclusive approach to European integration.

“The defense minister’s quote was changed in social media and ripped out of context,” a spokesman for von der Leyen told Reuters on Saturday.

“Mrs von der Leyen has emphasized that the EU is an inclusive process, which is about securing and consolidating the common values of the EU and dealing with all positions.”

The Polish reform of the courts would give nearly a free hand to the ruling conservatives in picking the country’s top judges.

It has triggered protests by thousands of young people and others over the summer and an “infringement procedure” from the European Union.

It comes as some European leaders call for letting some member states in the wealthier, Western part of the bloc push ahead with further integration without the others following suit.

During the show broadcast Thursday on ZDF television, von der Leyen highlighted significant efforts undertaken by the Baltic states and Poland to “live in freedom” and to be part of the European Union.

“Precisely this healthy democratic resistance of the young people, also there in Poland, must be supported,” she said.

Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski called on von der Leyen to withdraw her words.

“This is one of the most explicit statements, which I am not sure whether it is a warning or an admission by the German side of interfering into our internal affairs,” Waszczykowski told the wpolitice.pl right-wing news portal.

The Polish defense ministry said it would summon the defense attache from the German embassy for an explanation.

Von der Leyen is part of the conservative team trying to negotiate a new coalition government with the pro-business Free Democrats and the environmental Greens.

Earlier this year she sparked outrage among the armed forces after she decried what she called “weak leadership” in the military.

Cina dichiara Mr. Michael Brand ‘non gradito’.

Giuseppe Sandro Mela.

2016-05-14.

 Das Brandenburger Tor in Berlin

 

«Michael Brand, chairman of the Committee on Human Rights and Humanitarian Aid of the German Bundestag, is not welcome to China».

Ma chi mai sarà codesto Herr Michael Brand?

«Michael Brand (born 19 November 1973 in Fulda, Hesse) is a German politician and member of the CDU.

A former election observer at the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), Brand has been a directly elected member of the Bundestag since 2005, representing Fulda.

Between 2005 and 2013, Brand was a member of the Committee on the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety, where he served as the CDU/CSU parliamentary group’s rapporteur on recycling and waste regulations. From 2009, he also served on the Defence Committee and on the Sub-Committee for Civilian Crisis Prevention.

Since the 2009 federal elections, Brand has been serving on the Committee on Human Rights and Humanitarian Aid; he has been the committee’s chairman since 2014. In addition, he serves as deputy chairman of the Parliamentary Friendship Group for Relations with Bosnia and Herzegovina and as member of the Parliamentary Friendship Group for Relations with the States of South-Eastern Europe (Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia).

In April 2015, Brand vigorously criticized German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier for refusing to use the word “genocide” to describe the mass killing of Armenians by the Ottoman Empire, arguing that “the German foreign minister is expected on a national and international level to recognize and name a genocide; […] especially because of the Holocaust a genocide must not be by-passed or withheld due to cowardice.”» [Fonte]

*

Tuttavia emergerebbe anche un’altro aspetto di Herr Michael Brand.

Assieme a Kerstin Griese, Spd, aveva presentato e fatto approvare dal Bundestag nell’aprile 2015 la legge Griese/Brand sul bando del suicidio assistito.

Fin qui nulla da eccepire, tranne che questo tema sarebbe stato a cuore della dirigenza della Chiesa Luterana e, sembrerebbe, Brand sarebbe incardinato nella Luther Connection, lobby che si interessa di moltissimi argomenti e solo marginalmente di aspetti etici.

*

Essere poi membro del Committee on Human Rights and Humanitarian Aid, deputy chairman of the Parliamentary Friendship Group for Relations with Bosnia and Herzegovina e member of the Parliamentary Friendship Group for Relations with the States of South-Eastern Europe non sembrerebbe avergli garantito le simpatie cinesi.

Le sue attività poi a favore di un’indipendenza del Tibet avrebbero consolidato la decisione di dichiararlo “persona non gradita”.

*

Il fatto si propone ad molte interpretazioni differenti, mettendo ciascuna di esse in evidenza un particolare aspetto.

Tra queste, una ci sembrerebbe pregnante.

Che la Cina non avrebbe potuto gradire né Herr Michael Brand né ciò che rappresenta non era poi un mistero. Ciò che lascia stupiti e perplessi che il Bundestag lo abbia proposto per una missione in Cina.

 

Xinhua News. 2016-05-13. German legislator unwelcome in China for backing ‘Tibetan independence’

A Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Thursday that China had refused to allow a German legislator to visit the country for his pro-Tibetan independence position.

Michael Brand, chairman of the Committee on Human Rights and Humanitarian Aid of the German Bundestag, is not welcome to China, spokesman Lu Kang said at a routine press briefing.

Lu said Brand’s position of backing “Tibetan independence” is against Germany’s one-China policy.

Brand was denied permission to visit China purely because of his position on Tibet, not for his comments on the human rights situation in China, stressed Lu.

China attaches importance to exchanges and cooperation with the German Bundestag as well as its committees, including the Committee on Human Rights and Humanitarian Aid, Lu said.

The Chinese side has made extensive preparations for the upcoming visit of the Committee members, said Lu, adding that dialogue and exchange must be based on mutual respect.

It would be very unwise for the committee to issue a statement criticizing China’s decision, said the spokesman.
