Losers all. The Kenyan, Valerie Jarrett, Hillary (the Killer) Clinton, and now John (Special Oops) Kerry have really managed to dig themselves (and us) into a deep hole. With European trade talks on the horizon, they might never get to first base. Angela and her socialist buddy, François ain’t happy campers. And rightfully so!
Whatever will they do?
The revelations threatened to derail an EU-U.S. free trade deal worth billions of dollars.
France’s President Francois Hollande said Europe would hold off on any negotiations with the U.S. on the trade deal, until it was sure the U.S. spying had ended.
“There can be no negotiations or transactions in all areas until we have obtained these guarantees, for France but also for all of the European Union,” Hollande said.
In a strongly worded statement, the chairman of the European Parliament’s Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee said the spying allegations were a “disaster” ahead of the trade talks.
“Upcoming EU-U.S. trade talks will certainly be under strain in the wake of this scandal. There will be an enormous elephant in the room which will be impossible to ignore,” said Chairman Sharon Bowles.
“I will be leading a delegation of my Committee to the U.S. in a couple of weeks and the issue of bugging is bound to come up. The last time I was in Washington I was briefed in a coffee shop, although this was due to a very early start. That said, it might now be safer to conduct all our business in coffee shops.“
When these markets are involved, and the Central Banks of the EU are in such a chaotic state, look for something big. Soon.
Egypt is about to burn. Iran and Israel have been too quiet. Syria is awaiting. If Europe ever wanted a war, this is the time to get one. For free! After all, don’t we owe them, at least, that much?
Beware of diversionary black swans.
