‘Pandora Papers’ Claim First Two Victims, First Victory for Green Fascism

Oct. 11, 2021 (EIRNS)—Two heads of government who were opponents of EU green austerity mandates and proponents of nuclear war were knocked out of office by the “Pandora Papers” scandal this weekend. Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš’s party was outvoted by a coalition of right-wing parties featuring the one that started the confrontation with Russia over an ammunition warehouse explosion in Vrbětice in 2014. When Czech President Milos Zeman appeared ready to ask Babiš to form a government anyway, since the latter’s party was the top vote-getter as an individual party, Zeman was suddenly rushed to a hospital in unknown condition for unknown reasons. He is now listed in stable condition, for an undisclosed but chronic condition. And in Austria, Prime Minister Sebastian Kurz was forced to resign by a “Pandora Papers” scandal.

Many foundations will pay for “unconventional” means of shutting down nuclear plants or preventing them from being built, waving the banners of Malthusian genocide.

On an international level, nations which were holdouts against the “global minimum corporate tax” pushed by Janet Yellen’s U.S. Treasury quickly fell into line late last week, allowing this scheme to be prepared for adoption at the G20 meeting this week and then as a UN convention. EIR has exposed the prominent holes in this scheme before: City of London and Wall Street financial companies are not subject to the 15% minimum corporate tax; there’ll be no attempt to enforce this tax against “London offshore”; and the U.K. and European nations will drop their “online transaction fees” so that the IT giants are as free of sales taxes in Europe as they have always been in the United States.

Remember that London (with “London offshore”) dominates secret trusts and tax evasions. “The Tax Justice Network blames the U.K. and its controlled network of satellite jurisdictions for aggressively undermining the ability of governments around the world to meaningfully tax multinational corporations. The network said Britain has ‘single-handedly done the most to break down the global corporate tax system, accounting for over a third of the world’s corporate tax avoidance risks,’ ” reported International Investment, in May 2019.
