    The spread of illiberal ideology is threatening the euro, but it is an illusion that leaving it would offer an easier path, European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said on Saturday. Warning that a half-finished monetary union could be at risk in the next crisis, Draghi made the case for sweeping changes in how the currency bloc operates and spreads around financial risk. “The fascination with illiberal prescriptions and regimes is spreading; we are seeing little steps back in history,” Draghi said in Pisa, Italy. “Only by continuing to make progress, freeing up individual energies but also fostering social equity,...

    ITALY’S Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini has accused French President Emmanuel Macron of keeping the power from the people and in the hands of the elite, less than 24 hours after he said the young centrist was to blame for the “yellow vest” protests that have unnerved Paris. The young centrist is struggling to curb a wave of violent protests that have rocked his administration to its core, and forced him to scrap a planned carbon tax and up salaries. Mr Salvini, head of the far-right League party, has repeatedly locked horns with Mr Macron over immigration policy, and has...

    ITALY, December 3, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Amid what Italian media is describing as “open war” on school nativity scenes, Italy’s Education Ministry has slapped back, granting approval to installing crucifixes and reinstating nativity scenes in the nation’s classrooms. “The crucifix is for me the symbol of our history, our culture, our traditions,” said Education Minister Marco Bussetti, speaking to the Federation of Catholic Schools’ annual congress in Rome. “I don't see how it can cause any irritation in our school rooms, on the contrary it may help kids to reflect on our history.” Bussetti is not alone. When a school...

    In 990AD, the Archbishop of Canterbury named Sigeric the Serious had a more practical reason to walk to Rome. Having risen into his prestigious office, he needed to visit the Vatican to be ordained and collect his official garments. At the time he made the journey, there were many different paths to Rome. But Sigeric, who’d left from Canterbury, wrote down his route home through Italy, Switzerland, France and into the UK, cataloguing the towns he stayed in on his journey. The route he took now makes up the official Via Francigena. The only part that cannot be completed on...

    Italy has stood against the hijrah, and is now being demonized as hateful and exclusionary for doing so by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. This is the standard accusation against any country which resists Islamization. The UN is on an aggressive campaign to force Western nations to accept open borders. It devised the UN Migration Plan, which would hand over border control of sovereign states to the UN. The U.S., Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland and Australia have withdrawn from the Plan, and Italy will likely follow. ================================================================================= “UN says Italy ‘criminalising’ NGOs,” ANSA, November 26, 2018:The UN...

    The European Commission decided to ask Italy to change its 2019 budget plan and to submit the new version by November 13. However, back in Rome, government members have said they will not change their spending plans. The European Commission will announce on November 21, an opinion on all of the euro zone's draft budgets. If there is no change in the budget plan, Brussels could eventually open an excessive deficit procedure (EDP) — a legal step that aims to help countries respecting European fiscal rules and putting their finances back on track. Pierre Moscovici, commissioner for economic affairs, told...

    FULL TITLE: EU votes for total ban on organizations opposed to mass Muslim migration, thought police to be created “The Parliament is concerned by the increasing normalisation of fascism, racism and xenophobia and calls on EU states to ban neo-fascist and neo-Nazi groups.” The problem with this is that the EU labels as “neo-fascist” and “neo-Nazi” all those who oppose their agenda of mass Muslim migration and want to preserve European states as free societies. “MEPs argue, that there is a legal laxity towards ‘right-wing organisations’ in some member states and that this is one of the reasons behind the...

    Now Italian Church Is Drowning in Immorality Five years into Francis’ pontificate, a tsunami of perversion is hitting the Italian Church. The most recent example: a gay propaganda event on November 18 for which Bishop Antonio Napolioni of Cremona is responsible. It takes place at the monumental Our Lady of Fonte di Caravaggio church, the most important Marian shrine in northern Italy, and is called a “dialogue” between local dioceses and “LGBT Catholics”. The leaflet shows homosexuals holding hands. But Napolioni has his faithful against him: over 300 signed a letter pointing out that there cannot be any pastoral collaboration...
