Irish Bulldog Vincent Browne Pounds EU's Klaus Masuch Over the Irish Bank Bailout

Last Thursday in Dublin, Vincent Browne was like a dog with a bone at the ECB/EU/IMF Troika Press Conference. He put a question to the ECB's Klaus Masuch - a question that he refused to answer despite Vincent's persistence. So now is your chance to get that important question answered, and to facilitate this we have an email ready to send to Klaus below. All you have to do is enter your email address and the email as you see it will arrive in his inbox from you directly. – FM.com

Dominant Social Theme: The Irish, who are paying billions, are incredibly intelligent in the view of the EU.

Free-Market Analysis: The British have Nigel Farage (an independent-minded politician) and the Irish apparently have Vincent Browne, a more-than-independent-minded reporter.

In this YouTube clip we can watch Browne absolutely blow apart the arguments of EU and ECB banking representatives regarding the responsibility of the Irish to pay billions and billions to make European banks solvent for their poor investments in Irish real estate. It's a kind of tour-de-force.

Anyone who has appeared on media knows how tough it is to think and act calmly under the gaze of television cameras. Browne is not only a real pro; he's quick to respond to buttress his argument and never loses the thread of his rhetoric.

Dominant Social Theme: The Irish, who are paying billions, are incredibly intelligent in the view of the EU.

Free-Market Analysis: The British have Nigel Farage (an independent-minded politician) and the Irish apparently have Vincent Browne, a more-than-independent-minded reporter.

In this YouTube clip we can watch Browne absolutely blow apart the arguments of EU and ECB banking representatives regarding the responsibility of the Irish to pay billions and billions to make European banks solvent for their poor investments in Irish real estate. It's a kind of tour-de-force.

Anyone who has appeared on media knows how tough it is to think and act calmly under the gaze of television cameras. Browne is not only a real pro; he's quick to respond to buttress his argument and never loses the thread of his rhetoric.

What's most startling about the thrust of Browne's questioning is its adult nature. The US press, for instance, is often apt to ask President Barack Obama where he is traveling or what he's had for lunch. Browne's questioning – in this case and in many other interviews – is aimed at the jugular of the current imbalance of global power.

The implication is that the EU itself is a corrupt and repressive organization and that the Irish are being unfairly treated. In fact, it's more than an implication. At one point, Browne actually comes out and accuses the hapless trio of participating in the degradation and financial ruin of irish society. Masuch has no response. The woman to his right simply wants to "move on."

One of the dominant social themes that the Anglosphere power elite has been the most successful with is the idea that people have generic culpability based on where they are born or the culture in which they've been raised.

Germans have been relentlessly pounded to accept "national guilt" for World War II even though there is a good deal of evidence that Anglosphere banks helped fund pre-war Germany and may even have funded the German industrial effort throughout the war.

In Europe today, the power-elite promotion of "national responsibility" is in full cry. This is one of the reasons the elites hate the Austrian economic philosophy, with its emphasis on individual human action. A large chunk of the moral suasion applied to people via elite memes is based on the idea of group guilt.

The Irish – and other European countries as well – are being pressed to "accept" culpability for their "nation's" wayward, spendthrift activities. Southern Europe, we are taught, is constitutionally irresponsible when it comes to money.

Of course, this is nonsense. There may be lots of factors that explain what's going on in Europe today, but being born in a certain place probably isn't one of them. In fact, we've explained that we think the austerity measures taking place in Europe are a kind of set-up.

The idea of austerity is to get Europe primed to accept a fully federal system, in our view. It's a malicious, authoritarian system of tax hikes and service cuts aimed at the people who can least afford them. It's basically the system that the IMF perfected in all its blood and agony in the developing world, and now it's being implemented in the "first" world.

We've also tried to explain in the past how the Anglosphere elites that control central banks and seek one-world government are, in fact, behind the movement for a federalized Europe. The mechanism actually seems to us very simple.

In order to tempt countries to join the EU, the Eurocrats came up with the idea of giving governments money to ensure that the debts would be paid off and the public purse rationalized. This was nothing but a kind of bribe, however.

The top pols in these Southern European countries paid off their cronies, banked or invested the money and left power. But before they did, they did everything they could to ensure their countries "voted" to join the EU.

Having bribed the European (Southern) elites and garnered their cooperation, the next stage of the plan was initiated. The PIGS (especially) were suddenly seen to be bankrupt and unable to pay back their "bills." The citizens were then positioned to take responsibility – as the European banking system was "at risk" if they did not.

Browne doesn't spell all this out in his questioning but he sure implies a lot of it. Someday the full story about how the Anglosphere elites maneuvered behind the scenes to stick up the EU (even creating an apparently false schism between Britain and the Continent) will be told. Until then, confrontations like this one between Browne and Masuch will have to do. And they'll do pretty well!

Browne is a courageous man. See the video here.
