The GREAT Arbitrage Opportunity Written by Jeff Nielson, Sprott Money News   For the past several years, readers have seen these articles focus on the primary reason for accumulating and holding precious metals: to protect ourselves from the monetary/financial frauds of the banking crime syndicate. These frauds are aimed squarely at stealing our wealth.   …

Trudeau to Trump: Drop Dead! (Implications for Gold)
Written by Peter Diekmeyer (CLICK HERE FOR ORIGINAL)
 

 
Forty years ago, the Daily News published its famous Ford to City: Drop Dead headline, which dealt with President Gerald Ford’s response to a New York City handout request.

 

 
The article recalls Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s message to US President Donald Trump, who has been seeking help to relieve America’s defence forces.

Trudeau’s blunt reply, delivered in last week’s Liberal budget, came in the form of vast cuts to Canada’s military spending. Just as important as the scale of the cuts was the timing, which came shortly after the US President had demanded an increase.

This sharp rebuttal has important implications for how a Trump Administration’s policies could play out on the world stage, the US economy, and yes, for gold.

First, a little background.
 
Donald Trump’s threats

America is widely criticized for its wars, occupations, and bombings. However, the country also plays a crucial role as a global cop, which on balance, does a lot more good than bad, particularly for rich Western economies.

American soldiers guard the world’s sea lanes, keeping commerce safe.

March Comex Silver “Deliveries”

March Comex Silver "Deliveries"
Posted with permission and written by Craig Hemke (CLICK HERE FOR ORIGINAL)
 

 
 
It seems that every few months, the charade of "physical delivery" on Comex becomes so outrageous that we feel compelled to write about it. Well, here we are again today.

 
Before we get to the CME-reported numbers, let’s start with the usual background…

 
What you need to know is that most of this is just a massive scam. Rarely is any actual, physical metal exchanged. Instead, the bi-monthly Comex delivery process is primarily a shuffle of paper warehouse receipts and warrants. Additionally, the parties to these exchanges of paper are usuallly The Banks themselves, acting in one seemingly endless circle jerk where one month Scotia "delivers" to HSBC and, the next month, HSBC turns around and "delivers" metals back to Scotia. It’s been this way for years and it continues to this day.

And the volume of "deliveries" rarely changes, as well. For March, the initial amount of contracts still open and "standing" when the contract went off the board on February 27 was 7,299. Even at the conclusion of First Notice Day on the 28th, there were still 4,271 contracts still open. The delivery month is now complete and a total of 3,855 "deliveries" have been made.

Is Demand For Physical Gold Really Collapsing?

Is Demand For Physical Gold Really Collapsing?
Posted with permission and written by Rory Hall & Dave Kranzler (CLICK HERE FOR ORIGINAL)
 

 
 
Seriously? “Simon Black” (it’s a nom de plume) wrote an article titled “Demand For Physical Is Collapsing.” He focused on retail bullion demand numbers. The headline and the content is largely fake news as it focuses on the demand for minted coins vs the paper gold market. We’re not really sure about the intent of article, but the content was devoid of any relevance to the actual global demand for physical gold.

 
While the retail minted coin and small-size bar demand is down from last year’s levels, there’s two factors to explain this. First is price. The price of gold and silver was lower in early 2016 than it is now. The price of gold in February 2017 averaged $1230-$1240 while the price of gold a year ago February averaged $1175. Retail buyers of gold/silver coins are highly sensitive to price and tend to chase the price higher, up to a point. On this basis, it’s not surprising that more minted coins were sold a year ago compared to this year. This “price effect” on the demand for retail gold and silver coins likely explains about 25% of the demand comparison between 2016 and now.

 
The second factor is the economy.

Beware the Ides of March

Beware the Ides of March
Posted with permission and written by Jeff Thomas (CLICK HERE FOR ORIGINAL)
 

 
Eidus Martiae is the Latin term for 15th March, from the traditional Roman calendar. Since 44 BC, the Ides of March has held a dark reputation, as that was coincidentally the date of the assassination of Julius Caesar.

 
In December of 2016, the Chairman of the Federal Reserve announced that the Fed was likely to raise the interest rate several times in 2017. The next such rise is anticipated to take place on 15th March.

 
This is also an interesting date, as it’s the date upon which the US government reaches its debt ceiling. This was cast in stone by the previous administration, back in 2015. Although they put into place an automatic freeze on any increase in debt after that date, they did nothing to either cut back on expenditure or prepare for further funding. Therefore, the Ides of March once again has become ominous, as the US government is set to come to a grinding halt as soon as the money presently in the Treasury runs out.

 
On 15th March, the US Treasury will hold roughly $200 billion and will be unable to borrow more. When that $200 billion runs out, that’s it.

The War Against Humans Wins Another Fight

Robotics grow stronger everyday. Technology becomes “smarter” everyday and doubles its capacity approximately every two years. The giant multi-national corporations, the owners of our world, are doing their level best to automate as many task as quickly as possible.

 
Thirty plus years ago it began in earnest with the replacement of a number of human positions on the factory floors. Robots began manufacturing automobiles, processing food, medicine and a great many other task that humans used too perform. We now accept this reality as there is nothing anyone can do about it.

 
Today, with robots in a number of everyday places and automation replacing humans at every turn, why would fast-food workers believe they are any different? If google and uber are working around the clock to replace cab drivers with driverless cars why wouldn’t McDonalds want to replace the human with a robotic burger flipper, fry-frying robot and kiosk to take the order?

 
Wendy’s, to be more competitive with McDonalds, just announced the roll out of order taking kiosk in 1,000 locations all across America.

Gold Fundamentals Strong As PDAC Looms

Gold Fundamentals Strong As PDAC Looms
Written by Peter Diekmeyer (CLICK HERE FOR ORIGINAL)
 

 
Gold prices have surged (+8.57% EOD Wednesday) since January. However, one expert says that trend could continue.

“Shrinking exploration budgets, a dearth of new high-quality deposits and the “fear trade” will provide continuing upside pressure as the year unfolds,” says Brent Cook, editor of Exploration Insights. “Some gold stocks may be overbought right now, but long-term fundamentals are better than ever.”

Cook is little known to the general public, but widely-followed in the global mining community. The annual sector outlooks that he delivers at the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada, the world’s largest mining conference which opens in Toronto this weekend, are among its most anticipated events.

Cook, who, along with partner Joe Muzumdar, did on-the-ground research at more than 30 international mining properties last year alone, agreed to provide Sprott Money News with advanced insights into his thoughts.

Tanking capital investments drive scarcity
 
Key to Cook’s thinking regarding ore demand is the fact that mining companies have cut capital investments so much, that as prices inch back up, companies won’t be able to meet supply.

Depression, Stagflation, Stag-Depress-Flation
Posted with permission and written by Gary Christenson (CLICK HERE FOR ORIGINAL)
 

 
The United States suffered through a deflationary depression in the 1930s. Stock prices crashed, currency in circulation declined, commodity and real estate prices fell hard and human misery prevailed.

 
President Roosevelt revalued gold from $20.67 to $35.00 per ounce in 1933 – a substantial devaluation of the dollar. Make-work and government spending programs were implemented. War followed the depression.

 
Then the United States suffered through the “stagflation” of the 1970s. The economy stagnated and inflation rose to previously unheard of levels. The Vietnam war, inflation and social protests dominated the news, gold shot upward from $42.00 to over $800 per ounce and the dollar bought much less. Government spent massively on the Vietnam War and social programs.

 

 
Those two eras had a number of commonalities – war, more government programs, excessive government spending, social unrest, and escalating gold prices.

 
Both were periods of weak or negative economic growth. The 1930s were deflationary and the 1970s were inflationary.

Republicans, Democrats, and Voodoo Economics

Republicans, Democrats, and Voodoo Economics
 
Written by Jeff Nielson (CLICK HERE FOR ORIGINAL)
 

 
 
The Republican Trump regime has come out with its first economic policy paper. Democrat Larry Summers calls this “voodoo economics”. This is very funny on multiple levels.

 
Many would argue that it was the Clinton regime (with Larry Summers in charge of economic policy) which began the transformation of the U.S. economy from what was still a relatively strong and prosperous entity into the hopelessly crippled, financial Ponzi-scheme which it has become today. It was during the Clinton years, with a Democrat at the helm of the U.S. economy that the Wall Street crime syndicate was fully unleashed upon the U.S. – and the world – through tearing up the Glass-Steagall Act (1933).

 
Not only did that crime against humanity mark the beginning of the worst financial crime spree in the history of humanity (X 100), it also marked the beginning of the financial cannibalization of the U.S. economy, not just by the criminal banks, but by the all of the mega-corporations owned by Western oligarchs. It was during the Clinton years that the U.S. government concluded its most significant “free trade” deals.

Warnings We’ll Wish We’d Heeded: Plunging Jobless Claims

Warnings We’ll Wish We’d Heeded: Plunging Jobless Claims
Posted with permission and written by John Rubino (CLICK HERE FOR ORIGINAL)
 

 
It’s the same story every time: Imbalances build up during a recovery but most investors ignore them because good times have become the new normal and the uptrend seems bullet-proof. Then things fall apart and everyone wishes they’d paid attention to history.

 
This series will cover a few of the more glaring examples of late-cycle myopia, beginning with jobless claims, i.e., the number of people joining the ranks of the unemployed.

 
In hard times when layoffs are widespread and new jobs scarce, this number spikes. In better times, when jobs are plentiful and employers are desperate to keep good people, the number falls.

 
But when it falls past a certain point wages start rising at a rate that leads (through market forces and/or Federal Reserve actions) to rising inflation and higher interest rates, which are destabilizing and generally cause a recession.

 
So let’s see what this stat says about our place in the current business cycle:

 

 
It certainly looks like we’re back in 1999 or 2007, with a tightening labor market at the tail end of a long recovery.

Megatrends 2020: What They Mean For Gold
Written by Peter Diekmeyer (CLICK HERE FOR ORIGINAL)
 

 
 
Year-end provides investors with an opportunity to assess past performance, adjust strategies and set a base-case outlook for the coming months.

A new Trump Administration in Washington and recent voter backlashes in Italy and the UK suggest that this year, a longer outlook is in order.

Following are guesses about how ten trends are likely to play out during the coming US Presidential election cycle.

1. Trump wins election; but not a mandate

Trump’s electoral college win gives him the Presidency. However, Hillary Clinton, his main opponent, got at least 2.5 million more votes than he did. This will create huge resistance to his policies at the congressional level and on the ground.

Thought there was gridlock before? You ain’t seen nothing yet.

2. Big government conservatism

A Republican presidency, without a popular mandate, suggests that the only changes that Mr. Trump is sure to get backing from Democrats in Congress is spending increases and tax/tariff hikes.

Anything else will require considerable horse trading. The upshot will be bigger government, more borrowing and larger debts.

The Fact of Bullion Bank Gold and Silver Price Manipulation

The Fact of Bullion Bank Gold and Silver Price Manipulation
Posted with permission and written by Craig Hemke (CLICK HERE FOR ORIGINAL)
 

 
Back in April, the Cartel Shills and Apologists attempted to minimize the news that a settlement had been reached regarding a "nuisance lawsuit" alleging price rigging in gold and silver. As we told you at the time and on many occasions since, this case is instead quite significant and very important. The latest update on the case, released late yesterday, sheds more light upon what we’ve always known was taking place behind the scenes in the "free and fair precious metals markets".

 
First, just another reminder of the two key points:

 

Because of Deutschebank’s settlement offer and willingness to turn "state’s evidence" in the case, for the very first time a civil lawsuit regarding gold and/or silver price manipulation is being allowed to move forward into the legal discovery phase. This means depositions, affidavits and subpoenas. Never before has a case been allowed into this phase as all previous civil suits were thrown out by Bank-favored judges before discovery could begin.

The MAGA Trend Continues: Trump Convinces Carrier to Remain

Already, we have discussed the "Trump effect" that is gripping America. We are seeing people and companies turning theirbacks on globalism in record numbers and beginning to think about America first.

 
 
The time for the West to begin taking care of itself once again is now. The elite who have ruled over us for decades have gutted our jobs, siphoned off our wealth, and at the same time, made us feel guilty for our past successes. This trend is fortunately coming to a stop.

 
 
Already, Donald Trump has made deals to keep a Ford SUV plant in America and Foxconn is strongly considering moving their manufacturing back to the United States. Both of these are huge wins for Americans and have been discussed at length on this blog, but the MAGA trend doesn’t stop there.

 
 
One of the strongest talking points that Trump uttered on his campaign trail was about Carrier, the massive air-conditioner company that decided to move its manufacturing to Mexico, during the election cycle.

Black Friday, Fake News and Gold

Black Friday, Fake News and Gold

Black Friday and “Black Friday” weekend have largely become irrelevant. Every retailer in the U.S., from auto dealers to furniture stores to online tennis apparel shops have been advertising “Black Friday” sales since November 1st.

 
We have no doubt that the Census Bureau will concoct phony holiday sales for November (reported December 14) and December (reported in January). But the truth – the non-Russian influenced truth – is that retail sales spending per capita this holiday on an inflation-adjusted basis is going to be less than in 2015.

 
Already the National Retail Federation has announced that spending per person over Thanksgiving weekend was $289.19, down 3.4% from $299.60 last year. Gallup released a survey of shoppers and determined that Americans intend to spend an average of $752 on holiday gifts this year, down from $830 in 2015. Gallup, looking for a “silver lining” in the survey, stated that this matches the average for the last seven years since 2010.

American Silver Eagle sales have been suspended for the year according to the Authorized Purchasers of U.S. Mint products. Once again, as we have seen in the past, the U.S. Mint makes a dramatic change without warning. Where else have we recently seen a very dramatic change in policy without warning? India announced, without warning, the ban of the most widely used bank notes in the country – without warning. While these are very different scenarios they demonstrate the absolute control governments around the world hold over our money and our currency. Silver, while tatted as an industrial metal, has been money longer than any other form of money on planet earth. Silver was money long before gold was accepted and circulated as money.

 
As we have pointed out, time and again, once a nation’s money/currency becomes corrupt, the entire system must become corrupt in order to cover up the lie that money (gold and silver) will continually tell the citizens.

The recent surge in the US dollar has again brought massive selling in the emerging market currencies, most notably the Chinese yuan. This has occurred twice before in the past 15 months and each prior instance has foreshadowed a 10% drop in the S&P 500. Therefore, are we on the verge of another stock market correction?

 
We’ve been alluding to this in the podcasts of late and I’ve been meaning to write about it with some illustrative charts. However, the metals have been so volatile that I haven’t had the opportunity. Today, with both gold and silver mostly flat on the session, I thought I’d seize the moment.

 
The problem for the Chinese is that the yuan is pegged to the US dollar. So, when the dollar strengthens…as it has for the past 60 days or so…the yuan strengthens, as well. The PBoC doesn’t like this very much as it makes their exports more "expensive". It also creates a whole host of other issues, many of which are summed up in this excellent article I found at ZH last evening:

The Election That Had No Winner
Written by Jeff Nielson (CLICK FOR ORIGINAL)

 
The United States held a general election on Tuesday. Nobody won. Many will claim that Donald Trump won the election, as he is the person who gets to call himself “president” today. However, such a conclusion clearly flies in the face of the facts.

 
How did Donald Trump ever win the Republican nomination, in the first place? He won because the Establishment of the Republican Party had intentionally nominated a cast of lightweights, retreads, and utter incompetents. This was done in order to (supposedly) stack the deck in favor of one of those incompetents: Jeb Bush.

 
The plan was simple: assemble a cast of the lowliest political midgets ever seen on the U.S. political landscape, have the Big Banks stuff Jeb Bush’s campaign coffers full of their dirty money, and then get their sycophants in the mainstream media to pump Jeb’s candidacy. Game, set, and match.

 
Few readers will have any real understanding of the Bush clan. The patriarch of the Bush family was Prescott Bush. Prescott Bush was the father of one president (George Bush), the grandfather of another (George Bush Jr.

The Establishment Has Rigged the System: It’s Time to Shake Things Up
Written by Nathan McDonald 

 
 
 
Is the entire system rigged? Can we trust any of it? Yes and no. Large parts of the current "modern" day system we find ourselves living in is undoubtedly rigged against the little man. This is by design – make no doubt about it – but you should not let it rule your life. Because as history has proven time and time again, the true power lies in the people – we just don’t typically know it.

 
 
The establishment is once again learning this harsh lesson. People are "waking" up at a pace that I have NEVER before seen in my life. We are witnessing a once-in-a-lifetime event due to these Presidential elections.

 
 
The reason for this has been well documented by me in the past few months, but it is so important that it deserves mentioning again. The Mainstream Media and their elite puppet master have overstepped themselves.

 
 
They have gone too far and in their desperate campaign to protect Hillary Clinton, a blatant criminal, that they have shown that they are no longer a medium for the truth or even the news.

Some sort of Black Swan event will come out of nowhere and cause an explosive move in gold and silver – Bill Murphy on Shadow of Truth
 
In the absence of intervention, gold and silver would be trading at a level that is a few multiples higher from they “trade” now. At some point, some entity will want to take possession of a big “chunk” of gold or silver and will stand for delivery of the physical with the intent to remove that gold or silver from COMEX vaults.

 
For now, the big accumulators of physical gold (China, Russia, India) are content with the current rigged market price of gold as long as the West can continue to make deliveries into these countries. But at some point the West’s “cupboard” will be bare and big buyers will see what the COMEX really has in its vaults. It’s at that point when the precious metals market will become interesting.

 
There is always the threat that the Shanghai Gold Exchange begins arbitraging out the price difference between the physical market (eastern hemisphere) and paper market (Comex, LBMA).

October Comex Gold "Deliveries"
Posted with permission and written by Craig Hemke, TF Metals Report (CLICK FOR ORIGINAL)

 
 
As we’ve been monitoring all year, the total amount of gold allegedly "delivered" through the Comex has soared in 2016. This is simply another anecdotal datapoint of gold demand but the trend is certainly noteworthy, particularly when you see the numbers thus far in October.

 
We’ve already written about this trend several times this year. Our most recent article is linked below and I strongly encourage you to read this post as a refresher before you continue.

 

http://www.tfmetalsreport.com/blog/7770/curious-pattern-comex-deliveries

 
As noted in the post above, 2016 has seen a very unusual "delivery" pattern for gold on the Comex. Consistent with surging open interest and surging demand for gold in all its forms around the world, "deliveries" of gold through the Comex have increased as well. However, when you compare "deliveries" for 2016 versus 2015, you’ll notice that the divergence and increase didn’t really begin in earnest until June if this year.

Donald Trump Cannot Be Brought Down By The Hillary-Loving Mainstream Media
Written by Nathan McDonald (CLICK FOR ORIGINAL)

 
 
 
It’s no news to anyone that Trump is facing some rough times. He is fighting the entire Democratic party, traitors within the ranks of the Republican party, and just about the entire Mainstream Media. It is clear to both sides that the "system" is out to discredit and smear the Trump name.

 
 
What isn’t so clear, especially if all you do is watch MSM garbage, is the fact that Donald Trump cannot be brought down. This movement is bigger than Trump and the people have had enough. No matter what his enemies do, his support continues to grow.

 
 
Therefore, it was no surprise to his supporters to see the recent polls come out today. After experiencing what many are calling "the greatest debate victory in history", the numbers are finally starting to trickle in and they are showing a complete and utter reversal of Hillary’s momentum. The LA Times poll, one of the most accurate in former elections, has Clinton and Trump in a virtual tie.
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
Yet, what’s more shocking is the fact that Trump has once again not only tied it up with Hillary in the most recent Rasmussen poll, in which just a few short days ago he was trailing Hillary by five points, he has actually overtaken her and is leading 43% to 41%.

The renminbi was added to the SDR (Special Drawing Rights) basket of currencies on Saturday October 1, 2016. Nothing changed, the dollar didn’t blow apart and the world is still functioning as normal. Why? Because the people, around the world, still accept their currencies issued by the central bank in their respective country. We will not see any changes to the system until the next crisis. The next crisis could come today, tomorrow or fifteen years from now. The next crisis will be slowed, and possibly stopped by central banks around the world “printing” trillions of units of currency.

Going The Way Of The Denarius

Posted with permission and written by Jeff Thomas

 
 
History repeats. (Or it rhymes, depending on your choice of words.)

Throughout history, there has been an extraordinary tendency for governments (and cultures) to follow similar paths. Even regarding eras thousands of years apart, we see people behaving in much the same way, over and over. This is particularly true in the case of “wrong moves.” Over and over, people and their governments make the same mistakes, seemingly never learning from past errors.

Why should this be? In fact, how is this even possible? Surely, if a government in the 21st century were to make egregiously bad decisions, they are unlikely to be the same bad decisions that were made in, say, Rome, in the 4th century.

The reason, in two simple words, is “human nature.” Human nature remains the same throughout time. Two thousand years ago, governments were typically made up of egotistical, self-centred dictatorial-types, who were far more concerned with their own power than in the general welfare of their people. Today, politics remains a magnet for such people. They therefore will revert to type, when faced with the very same problems.

Should we cut spending to give the taxpayers a break? No, we should increase taxation and give more to ourselves.

Since the early 2000s, I’ve been describing a coming economic depression that will dwarf the one that began in 1929. But, this is by no means guesswork or crystal ball gazing. Whenever a country (or countries) create debt that is beyond the level that they can ever repay, an economic collapse is a near-certainty. Today, many jurisdictions, particularly, the US, EU, UK, Canada, etc. have created debt that is far beyond anything the world has ever seen. This assures us that the corresponding collapse will be of epic proportions.

 
Of course, I’m frequently asked, “When will it happen?” This is all but impossible to predict, but, to be perfectly honest, back around 2006, I was guessing, “Probably by 2012.” Although I predicted the minor crash of 2008, I felt that the bigger jolt that’s still coming would have been on our doorstep by now. Again, it’s not all that hard to predict the events if you do your homework, but predicting the timing is another matter.

 
However, I’ve continued to repeat my general principle that, when an economic unraveling of major proportions is coming, significant events increase in frequency and severity.

I’ve never bothered to explain why I established this principle as a barometer and maybe this bears explanation.

Switzerland and Norway Begin to Massively Accumulate Precious Metals Mining Shares

Switzerland and Norway Begin to Massively Accumulate Precious Metals Mining Shares

Written by Nathan McDonald 

 
Events are moving behind the scenes. For decades, Western Central bankers have told the masses that gold is a barbarous relic. They have encouraged us to shed its protection and move into the sanctity of their highly corrupt and highly manipulated fiat assets.

 
During this time period, our Western Central bankers have offloaded our countries’ hard earned wealth, shipping massive quantities of precious metals to far off lands in the East, never to be seen again – despite what they may think. Our wealth is being sold out from under our feet.

 
Yet, as I have reported on recently, a shift is occurring. Call it what you will – I call it panic. Many Western Central bankers are trying to accumulate metals in stealthy ways, behind the scenes and unbeknownst to the masses, whom they wish to keep trapped in fiat money.

 
The two most recent examples of Western Central Banks moving into precious metals in a serious way are the Swiss and Norwegian Central Banks.

 
Both banks are being reported to have printed close to $1 billion dollars of fiat money as of recently. This should come as no shock to anyone, as this is all Central Banks know how to do – print money.

 
What is more stunning, however, is where they immediately moved these funds.

Negative Interest Rates Are ILLEGAL

Written by Jeff Nielson

 
We used to live in societies which observed the Rule of Law. Among the many great ironies and perversities of our social/legal devolution is this. Many of our fundamental principles of law (and justice) were such an integral part of our lives that they were taken for granted, and thus rarely discussed in explicit terms. Now, in the Corrupt West, many of these same principles of law/justice have been forgotten – seemingly erased by our lawless governments.

One of these elementary principles of law is the commercial doctrine of “consideration”. The premise and legal principle is a simple one. In order for any commercial transaction to be recognized as being legitimate (and thus legal), both parties to any transaction/contract have to derive some material benefit. In law; this material benefit is known by the name “consideration”. There must be consideration, on both sides of any/every commercial transaction.

At this point; many readers will already grasp that so-called “negative interest rates” violate the legal doctrine of consideration, and thus fail the test as a basis for any legal/legitimate commercial transactions. However, this merely scratches the surface when it comes to the degree to which our criminalized interest rates violate the Rule of Law.

Picking Up the UK Tab

Picking Up the UK Tab

Back in the late 90’s, I began saying, “I’ll give the EU twenty years.” At that point, the EU seemed to be going great guns, but I believed that it was an ill-conceived concept that wouldn’t stand the test of time.

 
There were several reasons for my view. First, I didn’t believe that those countries that were entitlement-focused, such as the Greeks, would ever be as fiscally responsible as, say, the Germans, so the Germans (and other countries where there was a responsible work ethic) would end up subsidizing the Greeks (and to a lesser extent, Spain, Portugal, etc.)

 
Second, culturally, there was so great a divide between, say, the Austrians and the French, that they could never substantially agree on the union’s laws and directions.

 
Third, the countries of Europe have been at war with each other countless times over the centuries. They might agree to trade cooperation, but they would never agree to having a former enemy dictate policy to them. And it was baked in the cake that some members would have a louder voice than others and so, would seek to dominate.

 
In recent years, we’ve watched the EU stumble repeatedly. Invariably, Brussels has arrogantly assumed that it can dictate to all EU members, and offers few apologies for doing so.
