EU Commission Announced New Climate Taxes To Finance Transition

Dec. 23, 2021 (EIRNS)—The EU Commission has proposed a new set of taxes to finance the grants extended by the Next Generation EU Fund to member countries. The new taxes will mostly be “Green Taxes” or “Climate Taxes,” plus a share of the new international corporate tax.

The first tax is based on “revenues from emissions trading (ETS); the second draws on the resources generated by the proposed EU carbon border adjustment mechanism; the third is based on the share of residual profits from multinationals that will be re-allocated to EU Member States under the recent OECD/G20 agreement on a re-allocation of taxing rights (”Pillar One“). At cruising speed, in the years 2026-2030, these new sources of revenue are expected to generate, on average, a total of up to €17 billion annually for the EU budget,” says an EU release dated Dec. 22. https://ec.europa.eu/commission/presscorner/detail/en/ip_21_7025

The Brinksmanship of the Trans-Atlantic Cannot Be Tolerated

Helga Zepp-LaRouche made an impassioned appeal to viewers of her weekly webcast to use this Christmas period to join with us to mobilize for a New Paradigm. She compared "the commitment to brinksmanship" of Trans-Atlantic war hawks to the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, describing this as"extremely worrisome," as it comes from a belief that Russia and China will back down in the face of threats from the U.S. and NATO.

How to Break with the Geopolitical Strategy of Endless Wars

After 20 years of destructive, mindless wars, which benefitted no one but the contractors of the Military Industrial Complex and the War Hawks they fund, it is urgent that the west adopt a New Paradigm, of mutually beneficial, peaceful cooperation, to rebuild the targets of those wars.  What better time than now, to act in the spirit of Christmas, exemplifying the ideal of Good Will toward All Mankind?  The ecumenical spirit of generosity and love must replace the Satanic geopolitics of the "war of each against all", which has typified the actions of the Trans-Atlantic powers for at least four decades.  This spirit is embodied in Operation Ibn Sina, Helga Zepp-LaRouche's proposal for humanitarian aid and economic development for the people of Afghanistan.  Join us in our mobilization to realize the goals of Operation Ibn Sina

Ibn Sina and Christmas 2021: Why Generosity Is the Trans-Atlantic World’s Only Demonstration, Now, of Its Moral Fitness To Survive

As we rapidly approach “the moment of truth” in the tense dialogue concerning the future of humanity involving the Presidents of the United States, Russia and China, consider the chilling remarks to TASS by Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov, spoken with respect to the Russian proposals regarding the securing of written guarantees against further NATO expansion eastward: “I said that we would find forms to respond, including by military and military-technical means [if NATO ignores Moscow’s concerns again]. I reaffirm this.” Consider, also, the briefing given by Defense Secretary Sergei Shoigu to Vladimir Putin documenting the intention of American private military companies (PMCs) to carry out a staged provocation in eastern Ukraine using chemical weapons. Finally, note that Vladimir Putin was President of Russia at the time of the attack of September 11, 2001, and was the first head of state to speak with President George W.Bush, telling Bush that he had directed the Russian nuclear forces to “stand down” in a situation that appeared to potentially involve even a possible illegal takeover of the U.S. Presidency.

Is Jake Sullivan, a Russiagate Plotter, Lighting the Fuse for a Nuclear World War III?

CNN reported a leak from the Biden administration that there is only a "four week window" to prevent a Russian invasion of Ukraine -- or perhaps, they meant to say to provoke an invasion of Ukraine!  Some believe the leak came from well-known leaker Jake Sullivan, who has been exposed by special counsel John Durham as one who spread the false Russiagate story of Trump campaign links to Russia and Putin through a Russian bank -- a story exposed as a blatant fabrication.  Is Sullivan pushing his anti-Putin obsession more aggressively for fear that further exposure of his role in the Clinton campaign in Russiagate could lead to his indictment?

Russia Stops Attempt To Create UN Climate Police

Dec. 21, 2021 (EIRNS)—This is an extended version of an article appearing in issue No. 51 of the EIR Strategic Alert Service weekly newsletter.

On Dec. 13, Russia vetoed a UNSC resolution on “climate security” which would have been the first step in establishing a global climate police. India also voted against while China abstained. In motivating the vote, Russian UN ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said that the resolution would have empowered the UNSC with assessments and decisions that belong to scientists and that blaming climate change for all problems would have whitewashed responsibility for underdevelopment, wars, and terrorism.
