The Sanitary Dictator has blinked!

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Here in Italy, the Italians have a new name for their Prime Minister, Giuseepe Conte: Il Dittatore Sanitario. It is a play on words, since sanitario refers to health and things which regard health, as well as to being clean and disinfected. They call him this because in the name of keeping everyone from getting the flu, he has acted as a sort of obsessive father who prefers to lock all his children in their rooms for 2 months rather than risk that they get sick. And who cares about sending them to school!  Just for good measure, he ordered all the schools in Italy closed too!

But the Sanitary Dictator has just blinked. Because in his new Decreto-Legge (Dicatorial Decree rubber stamped by his ruling coalition in Parliament on May 14), the proposed Article 16, which would have extended the state of emergency response to COVID-19 all the way to Dec. 31, 2020 with the option of adding another 12 months after that, HAS BEEN CANCELLED from the final official version.

The version which had been presented beforehand as the official one was claimed to have been signed by the President of Italy, Mattarella.  But Attorney Polacco opined last night in his FaceBook address, that the President had Article 16 struck out.

But the good thing is, that the Government of Conte has backed down. They wanted another 18 months of emergency to maintain their claim to dictatorial powers.

Conte has blinked, in my assessment, because courageous Attorneys like Edoardo Polacco are leading legal crusades against him and Mattarella, in which more than 2400 criminal complaints have been filed against them both, in all the Procuratorships of Italy. Complaints, which if heard, will lead to the imprisonment of each of these men and their associates for as much as 15 years. That might have caused Mattarella to think twice about Article 16.

General Pappalardo’s call for an Orange Revolution on June 2 to topple the government might also have something to do with it, not to mention ITALEXIT’s call for 2 million to march on Rome on May 30.

But the buffoons in the Italian government just undermined themselves more than they think. For, in Italy, the President can refuse to sign a bill, but he does not have line item veto power. The bill should go back to parliament and be voted on again. So we have the case of a Decreto-Legge published in the official Gazette of the Republic in a form which was never approved by Parliament. That makes it totally invalid in law. And since it is invalid, any enforcement of it is another crime against the constitutional rights of citizens to be punished only by laws. (In Italy, a law of Parliament does not become law, unless it is signed by the President of the Republic).

Thus, cries for the resignation of the government will now increase. The ball in now in the people’s court.

ITALEXIT calls 2 Million Members to Rome, to protest on May 30th

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The comportment of the Government of Giuseppe Conte, an obscure lawyer known for nothing prior to being appointed by the leader of 5Stelle Party as a compromise candidate for Prime Minister (Presidente del Consiglio dei Ministri) in 2018, has riled up all of Italy.

During the Lock-down, the Italian Movement dedicated to getting Italy out of the European Union and out of the Euro started to gather enormous support. In their latest report their FaceBook page got 2 Million likes (the FB equivalent of a subscription for a FB page).

In response, and emboldened by the failure of Conte to stem the horrendous economic disaster of shutting down the entire country, ITALEXIT has decided to organize a massive protest at Rome on May 30th, at 9 A.M. at Montecitorio, the Piazza in front of the official residence of the President of the Republic, Sergio Mattarella.

This is bold move, because political manifestations have been made explicitly illegal by the Government on account of “danger of spreading the virus”,

Recently, a U. N. Official confirmed that the response to Coronavirus has been excessively injurious to human rights and and based on the excuse that the virus is more lethal than it is.

More significantly, ITALEXIT has announced that it is gathered the support of leading monetary experts, who are now holding private meetings weekly to hash out how to restore the Italian Lira and dump the Euro.

The much simpler solution to base a national currency has already been proposed by the Catholic Political movement Per Gli Italiani, per l’Italia e per l’Italianità (Per I.I.I.) in their political program.

Andrea Furetto, writting for L’Unico, the sovreignist journal, says there is no longer mere speculation that the days of the Euro are numbered. It is now the political objective of a large political coalition which will make its political power known to the government at the end of the month.

He confirms, what FromRome.info has reported on extensively, that this will be only one of the major demonstration at Rome in those days. The Gilet Arancioni have called for 1 Million to march on Rome on June 2, to topple the government, and on May 30, the assembly of citizens in every city and town of Italy to vote for a provisional government.
