Published

on

Neonettle reported that Italians are becoming increasingly frustrated with the European Union.

A new poll indicates that more Italians are willing to walk away from the EU due to its lukewarm response to the Wuhan virus.

An increasing number of Italians feel that the EU has left Italy out to dry during the Wuhan virus outbreak.

Similarly, the EU is becoming more unpopular among member nations as negotiations over financial aid have become more heated in Brussels.

Belgium, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Portugal, Slovenia, and Spain have been petitioning the EU to issue so-called “corona bonds” to stave off the crisis.

The debt from the bonds would be divvied up among all member countries of the EU.

However, Austria, Finland, Germany, and the Netherlands, colloquially known as the “Frugal Four,” are rejecting this proposal.

Instead, the “Frugal Four” are calling for activating the European Stability Mechanism. This would give member states the ability to take out loans in the form of bond purchases from the European Central Bank.

According to a new poll that the Tecne Institute carried out earlier this month, 49 percent of Italians now have desires to leave the EU and the Eurozone altogether.

This poll’s findings mark a 20 percent increase from the last time the poll was conducted 18 months ago.

Furthermore, another survey conducted by Termometro discovered that approximately 40 percent of Italians want to leave both the EU and the Eurozone, according to report by Il Sussidiario.

Additionally, the Tecne poll found that only 40.9 percent of Italian respondents want to stay in the European Union.

Neonettle noted that the “remaining 10 percent either want Italy to only leave the Eurozone or in some cases, for Italy to remain in the Eurozone but leave the EU.”

If an “Italexit” were to be held today, these numbers indicate that Italy could be on its way out of the EU.

Lega Party MEP Antonio Maria Rinaldi, asserted last week that Germany was carrying out a “diabolical plan” by urging the Netherlands to reject the “corona bonds” measure. Rinaldi believes that Germany wants to completely scuttle this proposal.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
