    Euro-Judge-Jerks Savage Germany 

    Between arrogant Kaiserin Ursula ranting about her Protokol Uber Alles…



    …and the nightmarish Channel Tsunami, Brits must be getting more and more hostile to that ‘European Project,’ aa the ruling class in Brussels dissimulatively describes its supranational ideology.



    Now, however, the naked authoritarianism at the heart of the Fourth Reich has come right out into the open, after Germany’s high court told the ECJ judges to butt out …


    …on an issue most people would have little interest in…


    …except that the Euro-Judge-Jerks have declared that they and they “alone” had “jurisdiction to rule that an act of an EU institution is contrary to EU law”.



    It seems there’s ‘growing concerns in Brussels over the fragmentation of the EU’s legal order.. ‘

    And the report exposes the EUSSR elite’s deepest fear, that the German court’s defence of German sovereignty ‘could encourage those in Poland and Hungary to act in similar ways….’

    What’s Mama Stasi Merkel doing to stick up for her country’s judiciary?

    Likely very little…


    She prefers to side with Brussels against Poles and other nations that retain a taste for independence.


    Oh, and…

    …shock, horror..

    “…could open the way to a ‘Europe à la carte, ’”


    Who would dare suggest that things might be arranged so that each country’s needs and customs and, God Forbid..constitutional requirements…be taken into account as rules are applied?

    That shrill little yelp, about a la carte, came from a  ‘spokesperson’ for the Brussels Commissars, whose identity the Guardian chooses to conceal.

    And no wonder, given the Hitlerian arrogance evident in the rest of his or her outburst.

     “The last word on EU law is always spoken in Luxembourg.

    Hungary Defends Europe, Despite EU Back-Stab! 

    The European Court of Justice last month ruled Hungary had breached EU asylum laws. Budapest was told to stop pushing asylum seekers back into Serbia – yet nearly 2,500 people have been forced across the border since that judgement.

    Read on »

    Hell, read on if you wish, and you will find nothing in the Europhiliac EUObserver that makes sense to patriots.



    Those robed swine in the ECJ served their Brussels Commissar comrades well when they issued that diktat in December.



    The lick-spittle Remainers in the UK seriously want to drag Britain back under the jurisdiction of institutions dedicated to a ‘European Project….’

    …..that aims to flood Europe with parasitic primitives, many of whom harbour nothing but hatred for the lands they swarm into and leech off?


    Never mind ‘push-backs!’

    Start mass deportations!

    Three Cheers For Hungary!

    EUSSR Diktat Scuppered? Beware Brussels Dirty Tricks! 

    Brilliant news from Brussels, where the brave Poles and Magyars have vetoed the Euro-Commissars’ budget.

    The two freedom-fighter governments in Warsaw and Budapest took their stand when the EUSSR moved to attach so-called ‘rule-of-law’ conditions to disbursement of funds.

    We cannot support the plan in its present form to tie rule of law criteria to budget decisions,” said Zoltan Kovacs, a spokesman for Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.


    On Monday, Polish Justice Minister Zbigniew Ziobro said the rule of law issue was “just a pretext”.”It is really an institutional, political enslavement, a radical limitation of sovereignty,” he said.


    Absolutely 100% correct, but neither truth nor justice can be guaranteed to prevail against the Evil Empire!



    Juncker the Drunkard may have passed the bully’s baton to Kaiserin Ursula, but his arrogant mind-set prevails…


    …and what now looms as the real danger is the way the ‘rule-of-law,’ which the ruling class likes to invoke as their cudgel of choice against national sovereignty, will be perverted by the robed rats on the European Court of Justice…



    …which is hardly a ‘court’ as freeborn people understand the term, but merely an additional political tool, tasked with suppressing resistance to the foul ‘European Project.’

    Sensible Brits understand this, and are watching very carefully…



    ….to see if Johnson’s indefensible readiness to compromise on fishing rights, Ulster, etc., will also see him have the UK bend the knee to ECJ diktats.

    NO WAY should such a betrayal of Brexit be countenanced!

      Sackur quite openly brought Soros into it. He was very breezy about it and sees nothing wrong with that devil’s interference.

    Top Euro-Judges Safeguard Crimmigrant Rapists! 

    While the EuroCommissars in Brussels babble and bicker behind closed doors about how to handle the corona plague…


    …the Brussels Empire’s judicial wing, the ECJ, has acted oh-so-decisively, a damnable ruling that no matter how evil a ‘refugee’ is proven to be, how many murders, sexual assaults…


    ECJ: Refugees cannot automatically be deported after committing crimes

    …or other heinous crimes he or she has committed, even, indeed, if he or she is shown not to be a ‘refugee’ at all, they may not be deported!

    • …..

    No, this insane court diktat hinges entirely on the Brussels Empire’s very own Charter of Fundamental Rights.


    The Charter prohibits, in absolute terms, torture and inhuman or degrading punishment or treatment, irrespective of the conduct of the person concerned, as well as removal to a State where there is a serious risk of a person being subjected to such treatment,” the Luxembourg-based court said in a statement.

    Torture and inhuman or degrading punishment or treatment?

    If there’s one thing most sensible people would agree on, it’s that any ISIS rape-gang adherents…


    …..who find themselves being subjected to such treatment have no grounds for complaint.

    And THIS Is What Bojo Will Have Brits Bow Down To? 

    I was reading about the European Court of Justice recently, how they are doing what some Leftist USA courts have taken to doing, making up the law to suit their own ideology rather than basing rulings on the legislation and the constitution.

    The most appalling ECJ misruling was on crimmigrant quotas, as desired by the Brussels Empire’s in-crowd, notably Mama Stasi Merkel.

    Although key decisions are supposed to be by unanimous agreement of the member state governments, the robed rats claimed that a qualified majority was enough.

    The mechanism actually contributes to enabling Greece and Italy to deal with the impact of the 2015 migration crisis and is proportionate.”

    Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó called the court ruling “outrageous and irresponsible” and “contrary to the interests of the European nations, including Hungary.” He added: “The decision puts at risk the security of all of Europe and the future of all of Europe as well.”


    Which brings us to Bojo’s fake-Brexit.

    Please read and absorb,

    Article 86 authorises the European Court of Justice (ECJ) to be the supreme judicial authority over any disputes between the UK and the EU during the Transition Period.

    The Transition Period is of course the period of time which would follow the UK’s withdrawal as a member from the EU while it still remains in the Single Market and Customs Union.

    The Transition Period is due to end in December 2020 but may be extended (up to December 2022) as long as a joint decision to do so is reached by July 2020.

    In other words, even though the UK would have left the EU, it is the EU’s supreme court that would decide any disputes the UK has with the EU including with respect to the WA.

    This would enable the EU to interpret the WA to its own advantage with no mechanism for the UK to resist.

    Article 87 extends the authority of the ECJ in this respect for a period of 4 years after the ending the Transition Period.

    So the earliest that the ECJ would cease holding sway over the UK would be Dec 2024 and possibly Dec 2026.

    Article 89 clarifies the full extent of the ECJ’s authority.

    It makes it clear that any judgements of the ECJ would be binding on and in the UK.

    The European Court of Justice’s pernicious role in the Withdrawal Agreement

    Read the whole article above, please!

    THEN read this, which confirms the initial part of our post today!

    According to the opinion of European Court of Justice’s advocate general Eleanor Sharpston…


    evil judge


    …the court ruled that “by refusing to comply with the provisional and time-limited mechanism for the mandatory relocation of applicants for international protection, Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic have failed to fulfil their obligations under EU law.”

    Please note, this arrogant woman is the UNITED KINGDOM’S ‘Advocate General’ with the ECJ.

    She is very clearly not on the side of nations trying to protect their citizens from undesirable aliens.


    merkel v poles

    She is openly allying with Mama Stasi Merkel and the Brussels Empire in its war on the valiant Visegrad nations.

    Victory To Valiant Visegrad! Fight The Good Fight! 


    While I do not have the constitution of that ECJ to hand, I am willing to wager that, like the Euro-Commissars, that gang of robed rogues take an oath of office always to place “Europe’s” law-codes above the allegiance they owe from birth to their own countries.

    Of course that’s not her in the top picture.

    Here she is, a joy to behold!


    Image result for eleanor sharpston"


    She continued that these countries cannot invoke “the maintenance of law and order” or “internal security.”


    Who the HELL does she think she is, to dictate to those brave historic nations when or how or why they may or may not ‘invoke’ those key conditions on which EVERY country’s well-being depends?

    And you Brits?

    Listen carefully over the next few days, as honest REAL Brexit supporters continue to expose how Boris Johnson has sold out UK freedoms by subjecting them to this supranational tribunal.

    Brits! Be Warned If You’re Flyin’ With Ryan (Unfair) Air! 

    No patriotic Brit who knows anything about Ryanair would ever willingly buy one of their tickets.

    That Eire alien Michael O’Leary, who runs the company, has stuck his arrogant nose into UK politics once too often…

    …we learn of a non-political, entirely commercial, aspect of their operation which should make any would-be fliers think twice.

    Euronews has a longish report, but in a nutshell, a court in Spain has branded Ryanair’s ‘controversial cabin baggage policy ‘ as, wait for it…


    The court had heard how the money-grubbing airline charged a woman TWENTY euros to take aboard hand luggage weighing only 10 kilograms on an inter-city trip from Madrid to Brussels.

    Ryanair was ordered to refund the rip-off impost AND was told that their policy..

     “curtailed the rights that the passenger has recognized by law” https://www.euronews.com/2019/11/20/spanish-court-rules-ryanair-s-cabin-baggage-policy-abusive-and-invalidShared

    But here’s what made me use this story – not the rip-off, but the sheer brazen arrogance of the culprit company’s reaction to the verdict!

    In a statement on Wednesday, Ryanair said: “This ruling will not affect Ryanair’s baggage policy, either in the past or in the future, as it is an isolated case that misinterpreted our commercial freedom to determine the size of our cabin baggage.”

    How uppity can this bunch get?

    Although the report says the judgement could not be appealed, we must remember that O’Leary has friends in very high, if publicity-shy, places..

    More Proof Of Strasbourg Slugs’ Dirty Tricks – Where’s That Green Left Lesbian Now? 

    When even the Brussels Empire’s own judges have to rule that the Strasbourg Slugs are guilty of blatant political prejudice against patriot parties, it tells you all you need to know about how bad and biased the anti-democratic ‘European Parliament’ really is, and has been for years.

    The villain of the piece, or rather villainess ( if that suffix is appropriate to a far-left Green lesbian!) was an Austrian named Ulrike Lunacek, whose other main distinction during her MEP years was as a shrill advocate, unsurprsingly, for the sexually maladjusted.

    She also, interestingly, championed the cause of an alleged Balkan war criminal!

    see her wikipedia entry


    Lunacek.Ulrike-6701 (16887025110).jpg

    The lesbian leftist Lunacek


    But she’s in the news this week after the European Court convicted that ‘parliament’ of deliberate dirty tricks, when Lunacek and her colleages victimised the group of which UKIP was then a leading member.

    A brief quote or two from a leftwing newspaper shows how, when the (exclusively Europhiliac) panel of Strasbourg Slugs decided that the patriot group be issued with a demand to repay EU funds’ – to the tune of £148,000 – and a refusal to stump up  half-a-million euros to which the patriots were entitled…

    ‘…the bureau of the European parliament failed to guarantee impartiality!’

    The lesbian bigot, who, inexplicably was then (2016) ‘a vice-president of the parliament’ had ‘prejudged the issue before the contested decision relating to the 2015 financial year was adopted” –  AND the panel’s minutes revealed she was the only MEP to speak on the case during the meeting. 


    Image result for prejudice meaning"


    But she had made her partisan bigotry clear even before the hearing began!

    “It takes exceptional nerve to disparage the EU at every opportunity while illegally cashing in on EU funds” she ranted, and… in reply to a social media user, she also claimed that “fraudulent use of funds” had taken place.’


    This arrogant sow’s outbursts not only reveal her disregard for basic rules of fair judicial play but also show how the Europhiliac elite regard tax-payers’ money that falls into their hands as a kind of big yummy trough…



    …into which they may shove their dirty snouts in order to push their adored ‘European Project’ –  but which is off-limits to democratically-elected MEPs with a mandate to fight back against the supranational agenda.

    Curiously, the Guardian reporter becomes quite guarded when it comes to what has become of this bigoted bint.

    Lunacek left the parliament in 2017 for unrelated reasons.

    Anybody know what those ‘reasons’ were?

    • Edward Lamont 4:14 pm on November 9, 2019 Permalink | Reply

      I had heard about this but you provide background on the main culprit which the Guardian concealed.

    ECJ Robed Rogues Extend A Helping Hand To Red Vermin! 

    Most of you will have seen the barely-concealed gloat-reports in the left media about how those robed rats on the ‘European Court of Justice’ have lashed out at Poland, a rogue ruling…

    Poland broke EU law by trying to lower age of retirement for judges

    (That’s from The Guardian)

    …intended to ‘right a wrong’ allegedly done to certain ‘judges’ – except that those ‘judges,’ a significant number of them, were up to their necks in Communist evil.



    Communists are vermin, and deserve all they get.

    These dirty red apparatchiks really ought to have been hung, as collaborators with the Soviet Union which kept their country in subjugation from 1945 till the Solidarity liberation movement took power in 1981…



    ….setting off a chain-reaction across Eastern and Central Europe in which one communist despotism after another fell to the forces of freedom.



    Instead, these collabos ended up in well-paid positions of judicial power – outrageously – as if any communist were capable, then or now, of understanding, never mind dispensing, justice.

    The Polish patriot government has behaved with great restraint – no dramatic purge, no show-trials, opting for the gentler option of reforming the retirement age to get the swine replaced with decent Poles.

    And who steps in to lend a helping hand to these marxist collabo curs?


    Who else but the highest judicial organ of the EUSSR.

    The article I link to gives chapter and verse about several of the quisling judges…

    …but I am content to let you read the details for yourselves.

    However, the conclusion reached ought to be read carefully, because I do not agree with some of what it says and I need to criticise it in part…

    If this report is factually correct, one thing is certain: a considerable number of senior judges on Poland’s Supreme Court have a past that cannot be a source of pride or confidence in the character of those who preside over important judicial business. Those who are actively working to reform the legal system in Poland will feel vindicated in their actions by this report. 

    So far so good.

    But here’s where I think the writer goes astray.

    This is the context to the whole judicial reform debate which, as Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki often says, the western member states, the European Commission and the judges in the European Court of Justice simply cannot understand. The institutional memory of having to deal with the Nazi past following WWII is now too far in the past for parallels to be sensed. https://polandin.com/39288077/41-polish-supreme-court-judges-with-communist-past-report

    Far be it from me to dispute Mr. Morawiecki’s exculpation of the Euro-Commissars and the ECJ robed rogues, and the leaders of the ‘Western member states.’

    But I must!

    Of the last-mentioned, Mama Stasi Merkel knows very well  – from her own youthful collaboration with the Communist puppet regime in East Germany…

    Mama Stasi – Am I Unfair To Merkel?

    Did Kim Philby Advise Merkel On Treason Skills? 

    …how the red tyranny was at least as evil as the Third Reich.

    And the rest of the Euro-elite?

    They’re rotten but not ignorant of history.

    None of them would ever express the view that the Nuremberg Trials and the de-nazification programme were inappropriate responses in 1945.

    No moral difference!

    So they FULLY understand what they are doing by succouring wicked communists, men and women whose enforced retiral was approved by a democratically elected Polish parliament with the endorsement of most ofthe Polish people.

    As we have said before..

    Malignant May Offers Sinn Fein A New Back-Stop Veto! 

    I subjected myself to watching May’s pathetic speech…

    …in which she spewed forth her latest grovel-scheme and I carefully noted her new nonsense about the ‘back-stop.’

    She must have known from the get-go that her appeasement of our enemies in Eire would subvert any deal..



    ….hence my belief that she herself deliberately set out to sabotage Brexit.

    But many people might have missed the shameful phrase that popped up among her weasel words.

    As reported on the BBC, she had originally pledged in January, I think, to “seek the agreement of the Northern Ireland Assembly,” for any additions to her sell-out in Ulster, a completely empty pledge, because….


    …. ‘Westminster was only required to seek agreement, not to get it.’ 


    ‘This has now been toughened up.’

    Oh Yeah?

    “The Northern Ireland Assembly and Executive will have to give their consent on a CROSS-COMMUNITY basis for new regulations which are added to the backstop.”

    My capitals – important, because that terminology ‘ means that a simple majority vote of the assembly would not be enough.’

    In other words, as so often like her predecessors, like the architects of sell-out, Major and Blair, May is giving equal weight to the wishes of those loyal to Queen and Country, the unionists, and to the disloyal vermin of Sinn Fein, the scum who glorify Blood-Beast Adams and the late louse Martin ‘Murder’ McGuinness..



    She’s reiterated the Major/Blair refusal to include the basic democratic principle of majority rule in the governance of British Ulster..

    Typically the BBC seems more concerned about unionists exploiting this veto power, but that should be their right, if they feel they face an existential crisis, as they should, with Traitrix May at Number Ten!

    What is grossly offensive is the blithe, almost casual way the Demon of Downing Street (not for much longer, we all pray!) hands the power of veto to the evil republicans…


    Why should terrorists hold veto power?


    …who wish nothing but the destruction of the United Kingdom and the incorporation of all Ulster into the alien republic currently run by Juncker’s mincing little buddy Varadkar.


    .Related image

    Eire’s Act Of War? Limp-Wrist Leo Stamps A Mincing Foot! 

    Mind Your Erse! Varadkar Minces Into Ulster’s Internal Affairs


    May doesn’t give a tinker’s cuss about Ulster.

    The BBC does, however, draw attention to the flimsy nature of May’s ostensible ‘promise,’ viz.

    What would happen if Stormont did veto any addition to the backstop is not entirely clear.

    All we can say for sure is that there is a mechanism in the Withdrawal Agreement that ultimately allows the EU to take “appropriate remedial measures” if the UK does not update the backstop.  .https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-northern-ireland-48359882

    ‘Appropriate remedial measures?’

      We’re used to it, Ross, but nice to see you remind our fellow-British on the mainland how unfairly we get treated and the worst part is the different voting system, fixed to make sure that at least one of our 3 elected members is always a disloyal enemy of Ulster.

      I just heard that even though we vote today, our results are held back again, till after the weekend because a lot of the Continentals do their voting on Sunday!

        Right you are, Billy, and it’s called discrimination, except when the loyal Ulster people get different voting rules from everybody else in the UK.
        As for Sinn Fein-IRA getting a veto as a free gift from May, what does any of us expect? She is a monster with no principles.

    Read This As Polls Open – Report Slams Sly MEP Swine! 

    A third of MEPs even declined to reveal addresses of their offices, gave addresses that could not be found on the map or simply refused to answer.

    That’s pretty bad.

    What have they got to hide?

    …investigations (brought together under The MEPs Project) had shown that many of these offices just did not exist….


    The question above, and the stunning conclusion, come from a report on a case lost by a group of journalists  and you should note well that these are NOT ‘populist’ or ‘nationalist’ journos.

    Not at all.

    I’m looking at a page from the fanatically Europhiliac EUObserver.

    As they say themselves –

    We, the journalists from The MEPs Project who have co-signed this opinion piece do not share a political platform.

    We have very different opinions on the future of the EU.

    However, as reporters covering European affairs, we have one common objective: to hold elected officials accountable for their decisions as well as their use of taxpayers´ money.

    I’m not going to quote the entire report, but it’s worth noting that their indictment of ‘Europe’ is not ONLY of the Strasbourg Slug MEPs..



    ….but also of the arrogant elitists on the ECJ – the very body to whose arbitrary rulings…


    evil judge


    …Theresa the Traitrix would have her sleazy deal, backstop and all, be subject.



    the European Court of Justice…decided that the MEPs’ right to privacy trumped our right of access to documents

    Euro-Jerk Judges laughing at the tax-payers?


    We thought the European Court of Justice would recognise the democratic public interest in this request.

    We thought the European parliament would share our concern and seize the chance to strengthen the legitimacy of the parliament.

    We were wrong on both assumptions.

    Given that reality, why would ANYONE in the UK want Britain to stay in a sty occupied by dirty, disreputable, greedy swine?





    In 2019, all members receive €4,513 each month for keeping offices in their home countries while not on duty in Brussels and Strasbourg.

    This allowance comes on top of their salaries (€8,757.70/month), and in addition to reimbursements for travel costs (business airfare/first-class rail fare).

    They also receive allowances for living costs (€320/day). The office allowances represents more than €40m a year.

    Out of 748 MEPs at the time of our investigation in 2017, only 53 were prepared to show documentation for actual spending.https://euobserver.com/opinion/144827


    enjoy-its from europe


    As the journos remark…

    So much for transparency of public spending.

    We did not ask what tax the parliamentarians pay or how they otherwise use their salary.

    We were not looking for information about their private lives.

    Rather we asked for documents that the European parliament is supposed to have in order to verify that this public money is spent in accordance with the rules.

    This argument was not enough to break the privacy barrier, we were told by the court.

    Their final segment is headed, accurately, with the words, ‘Lost battle...’

    Thus, we lost the legal battle. Then there was the political reaction.

    On 31 January 2019 a majority of the Members of the European Parliament voted in favour of a change of the rules that govern their expenditures.

    It will in the future be made technically possible for individual MEPs to publish a voluntary audit of their use of the General Expenditure Allowance (GEA), the office money, on their official websites.

    That is to say:

    No demand for auditing.

    No obligations to document costs.

    No accountability of how the allowances are used.

    There’s a lot more, but anyone naive enough to contemplate a vote for Remain stooge shouldn’t need ANY more!

    f the European parliament rejecting responsibility and accountability.

    This is all the more surprising as now the EU commissioners and the top officials of the EU agencies publish details about their travel expenses.

      You got off to an early start but this is a damning indictment of ‘Europe!’
      Merkel has no principles so naturally she wont say a word about her cronies in Strasbourg.

      We knew the slugs suck up as much of our money as they can with all those expenses, but hiding out and non-existent addresses is incredibly out of order,
      That ECJ court is up to its neck in the system, which is why they protect the MEP rip-offs from scrutiny.
      I would love to know how much tax money drains away there into the judges pockets, salaries, expenses and unlike the MEPs they’re not even elected.

      A long day if you’re leafletting in a fresh breeze but I think we will win.
      Your slug story was very handy as a different talking point with people.

      Now that all the campaigners have fallen silent, almost, once the voting’s done, we have to wait and see.
      I read somewhere that Brussels has banned exit polls.
      Is that so and if it is so, who gave Brussels the power to tell our UK media what they can and cannot publish?

        I’m afraid so, Diana. There are lots of laws about elections but as usual the UK has to do what it’s told by Brussels, or else.
        EU dictates are not to be challenged.

        I confirmed this from the BBC’s own website, and they admit that ‘there is an additional restriction in the UK for European elections…it is a criminal offence to publish exit polls or opinion polls which ask people how they’ve voted (anywhere in the EU) before 22:00 BST on Sunday 26 May.’

        British political leaders have never stood up to Brussels on this and I have never heard of any media protests either. To me, it’s not something I care much about, one way or the other but I don’t like any bossy rules from anywhere so I looked it up.

        The excuse is that if Brits vote for a left or right party, for example, today, then the Greeks or Italians (who vote on the weekend ) might be influenced by the British results, which is pretty illogical if you ask me, and insults the intelligence of the Greeks and Italians, as if they can’t think for themselves!
        In the USA results on the Atlantic coast are announced while Californians are still voting but nobody thinks that’s a problem.

          Whatever UK law says about banning exit polls, it is not being applied in other countries.
          I just watched news from Dublin, all about the exit polls there.

          Ernie, and all others bemused by this topic, I have just found a brief explanation of the exit poll mystery, in EUObs, that Brussels-friendly site that has its uses.
          Here’s the link.

        Diana, you will be arrested and charged if you try to conduct an exit poll.
        It’s the British Government acting as enforcers for the EU again.
        I think it’s ridiculous.
        Nobody is obliged to say how they vote but why should it be a crime to ask politely?

      I have been catching up on the news about the European election and maybe we are at cross purposes but in Holland exit polls are happening. Euronews has a short report https://www.euronews.com/2014/05/22/wilders-anti-eu-party-pushed-to-fourth-place-in-netherlands-exit-polls
      So are exit polls illegal or not?

      A Google check, lots of news about exit polls. I also double-checked that BBC site. No exit polls.
      This is intriguing.
