*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Joe Biden has just Lost a Last Chance to get a neutral US Supreme Court Verification of his Notoriously Controversial alleged Electoral Results of Nov. 3, 2020, and SCOTUS vice-President Clarence Thomas Warned of "Catastrophic Consequences" (sic !) concerning "Erosion" of Citizens' Trust to the Electoral System, After a Series of Non-Motivated Rejections of 7 Law-Suits for "Writ of Certiorari" mainly against Pennsylvania (the Biggest "BattleGround", "Swing" State among 6, Key for the Overall Electoral Result), lodged by Don Trump's Team (2), Lawyers Wood (on Georgia), and Sidney Powell (on Michigan), Pennsylvania's GOP, Lawmakers, NGOs, etc

 The "Certiorari" Procedure (Unlike an Appeal) is based on Discretionary SCOTUS' Choices, Independent of Citizens' (Electoral and/or Other) Rights, and does Not pre-Judge or affect their Legal Rights or Court Cases in substance, Focusing on the overall Organisation of Federal Public Services for the General Interest.

Most Other Trump Team's Legal Complaints have been notoriously Droped, by Mainly Partisan State Judges, basically on various Procedural Pretexts, Not on the Merits.

=> So, at least Some among 8 Legal Complaints lodged to the US Federal Supreme Court, (from which reportedly still Remains Only 1 concerning Wisconsin State, while Other Pending Issues have Not Yet Found their Road to the SCOTUS), had a Particular Importance, by, at last, Offeding to USA's Highest Court a real (Even if InComplete yet) Opportunity to Eventualy Judge on the Merits at least Some among the most Serious Problems Notoriously Faced in that Bumpy Nov. 3 2020 US Presidential Election Row.

- <<Elections are “of the most Fundamental Significance under our (USA's) Constitutional structure" because, >>Through them, We (the American People) exercise Self-Government>>, Stresed SCOTUS, f.ex. since 1979, as Vice-President Thomas reminded in a Disseding Opinion Publshed Today.

- "But Elections Enable self-Governance Only When they include Processes that “giv[e] Citizens (including the losing candidates and their supporters) Confidence in the Fairness of the Election", he underlined, pointing, f.ex. to a SCOTUS' case of 2006, according to which, “Confidence in the Integrity of our Electoral Processes is Essential to the functioning of our participatory Democracy”. On the Contrary, "Unclear Rules threaten to Undermine this System. They sow Confusion and ultimately Dampen Confidence in the Integrity and Fairness of Elections", he Denounced.

- SCOTUS' VPresident Published that on the Occasion of a Pennsylvania GOP's Lawsuit against alleged Fraud/Gross Irregularities in 2020 US Presidential Election, but Lawyer Lin Wood rightfully observed that it's, naturaly, "Directly on Point" with his "Georgia case" and "Sidney (Powell)'s cases in Michigan and Wisconsin", (Comp. Supra), etc+. Mutatis-mutandis, a Similar appreciation might Also be used on an Earlier Legal Complaint Notoriously lodged to USA's Federal Supreme Court by Texas and 18 Other States...

- Indeed, All of them were Droped under Strictly Procedural Points, and Not at all on the Merits of these Cases : Today's 7 Cases were Droped as "Moot", i.e. too much Delayed in Time. And the Texas' a.o. Lawsuit had been Droped for "Locus Standi" pretexts.

=> But, a most Substantial Consequence, throughout All these various Lawsuits, is that, at Any Case, Biden's alleged Election Claim was Not Proved at all to be True, (at least as far as the USA's Supreme Court is concerned), Remaining, on the Contrary, Always a Contested and UnCertain Question Mark !

+ In Addition, at the Present Cases, Biden's position is located on a Particularly Shaky and Doubtfull, UnStable and Negative Claim, which, Normaly, shouldN't have Enough Chances to be Admitted at all :

>>> Indeed, as SCOTUS' VPresident Critically Observes, in Pennsylvania, Recent and Controversial Changes had Imposed "In Mail" Ballots, i.e. "gave All Voters the Option of Voting by Mail" : Something that is Notoriously Considered as Dangerous for Fraud, (and is Even Excluded in CoE's "Code" for Electoral "Good Practices", established by the Competent "Venice Commission", where the USA are among its 62 full Member States : See http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coeexpertstoefonusaelectionflaws.html, etc).

+ Whenever it Might, Perhaps, be Exceptionaly Authorized, "In-Mail" Voting should be Casted at least "a few Days Before' the Electoral Day, stresses, in Addition, CoE's Electoral "Code", (ibid). But, in this Case, Local Authorities had Even Seeked to Authorize it, initially, until 8 p.m. of the Electoral Date...

++ Evenmore, a Last-Minute Addition had Extended the Reception of "Mail-In" Votes as Far as ...Until the 3rd Day AFTER the Electoral Day, (regardless of Any Post-Stamp, or not, from the Day 1)...

+++ As if this was not enough, Moreover, it's Not the State's directly elected Parliament which had taken such a Controversial Measure, (Despite the Fact that USA's Federal Constitution had clearly entrusted the Legal Competence to do so Only to the States' Legislators), But some (UnElected by the People) Executives, Adding even More Controversy ....

- However, Curiously, Even if, from the Start, such Lawsuit "Met" SCOTUS' "Criteria for Granting Relief", and "Parties did Agree, on Both Sides, that the Issue Warranted Certiorari", while "there was, Also, No Question that Petitioners Faced irreparable Harm", and "a Strong Argument" that a Pennsylvania Authority's "Decision Violated the (USA's Federal) Constitution", and "Petitioners Promptly moved for Emergency Relief", at the Beginning, since "September 28", (etc),

Nevertheless, Already, "Before Election Day" (Nov. 3, 2020), SCOTUS had Initially Denied a Motion to expedite" that case, "Although the Question was of <<National Importance", and there was a “strong Likelihood that (the State Authority's Controversial) Decision   Violates the Federal Constitution", VPresident Thomas Criticized....

=> In Consequence, at least "Now" (2/2021) there is "No (legitimate) Reason to Avoid" these Lawsuits, he judged.

>>> Because "that is Not a Prescription for Confidence" of Citizens. On the Contrary, "Changing the Rules (1) in the Middle of the Game is Bad enough. Such rule (2) by Officials who may Lack Authority to do so, is even Worse. When those changes (3) Alter Election Results, they can severely Damage the electoral system on which our self-governance so heavily depends. If State Officials have [ NOT ] the authority they have claimed, we need to make it clear. ... we (SCOTUS) Need to put an End to this practice Now, Before the Consequences become Catastrophic", (by provoking even W ORSE ?


According to public reports, one candidate for

"a state senate seat claimed victory under what she contended was the legislative rule, that dates must be included on the ballots. A federal court noted that this candidate would win by 93 votes under that rule"

 "A second candidate claimed victory under the contrary rule announced by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. He was seated"...

-----------------

- In Fact, things Became Nasty during "Recent Years", with "a Trend" towards a "Dramatic Expansion" of "Mail-in Votes" via the "Post" : F.ex. 0n 2018, Mail Ballots "composed Just 4% of those cast in Pennsylvania", while "Increasing in 2020 to 38% !", he Denounced.        

- But, "the Risk of Fraud is  <<Vastly More Prevalent>> for Mail-in Ballots", SCOTUS' VPresident clearly Warned, pointing, inter alia, to a "NYT" Article, where the New Dean to YALE Law School "explained that Absentee Voting allows for ... <<Alternatives to Commit Fraud>> on a Larger Scale", (f.ex. Stealing or Stuffing a Ballot box", etc), while "All the Evidence of Stolen Elections involves Absentee Ballots and the like" Nowadays... "Even Before Widespread Absentee Voting, a Federal Court had Reversed the Result of a state Senate Election in Philadelphia, after Finding that the Supposedly Prevailing Candidate had “conducted an illegal Absentee Ballot Conspiracy, and that the [election Officials] covertly Facilitated the scheme with the specific Purpose of ensuring a Victory for” that Candidate... + As for US President Trump he had Recently Explained that "Late Mail-in Ballots" Help Fraudsters by Revealing Where and How Many "Votes" they Need to Add in order to Win, (f.ex. as Biden announced himshelf, After the Electoral Night, in a Video Press-point on Pennsylvania, Boasting that InComing Mail-in Ballots will Continue to Give him a ...78% Majority at a Key County, until he Reverses Trump's Initially Winning Advance : See http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coeexpertstoefonusaelectionflaws.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/usa2020electoralfraudproofgrows.html).             

+ However, Fraud/Irregularities' Risks from "Mail-in Ballots" raise a Hard Problem for "Post-Election Litigation", because they are too Time-Consuming, (f.ex. in Checking Envelopes, Signatures [an Issue, however,Easily Solved by Romania, on Late 2020, thanks to the Registraion of "Electronic", Digital Signatures : See http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coeexpertstoefonusaelectionflaws.html], Disputes, etc, throughout Thousands of Ballots), at a period when Courts' Time is Short, given the "Tight" Post-Electoral Events' Calendar, (f.ex. with "Fixed" Dates for Great Electors' Certification, middle December, the Official Counting, by US Congress, of their own Votes for the Presidency, at the Beginning of Jenuary Next Year, etc), pointed out Justice Thomas.    

From the point of view of "Eurofora", we don't think that such a "Zeitnot" should be an Absolute Problem : As far as main Legal and Political Principles are concerned, the Priority should, Normaly, be to Ensure that People's Democratic Choice is Respected, (i.e. Exclude Fraud/Gross Irregulrities which might Undermine it). So that the matter of 1 Week or even Month, Sooner or Later, for the Final Certification of the Great Electors, and/or the US Congress' Official Counting of their Votes for the US Presidency, should, we believe, be considered as, Comparatively, Secondary, and be Adapted, according to practical Necessities, (considering that, at any case, a Full Presidential Mandate of 4 Years expects whoever will really Win that Election). The Number 1 Issue Always being to Ensure Respect for the US Federal Constitutional Principles Guaranteing Citizens' Trust, to the Electoral System Nowadays, and Not a Mechanical, "Blind" Transposition of some 1877 -Fixed (and Only 1945 Adapted) "Dates" for the Formalities... Therefore, it seems Logical and Natural, that, Whenever there might, Eventualy, be a Real Need f.ex. to exceptionaly Extend a Time    Deadline, and/or to Change a given "Date" for one or two among those Various Events, (i.e. as long as there might Still be Important Post-Electoral LawSuits "Pending" at the US Federal Supreme Court, a relevant Postponement of some Dates should, normaly, be possible...)

Anyway, SCOTUS VPresident uses the above-mentioned Argument about possible "Time Deadlines" Problems for Post-Electoral Judicial Control of Long "Mail-in" Voting Disputes (Comp. Supra), Not in order to Hinder, but, on the Contrary, in order to Incite the Supreme Court to Seize the "Opportunity", that it has Now, (i.e. once an "Orderly Transition of Power" has been just performed, while Important Pending Issues are Still Waiting, Ready to be Examined on the Merits and Settled, once for ever), in order to Judge those Issues, not only for the Present Cases, But Also for the Sake of the foreseable Future in Similar or even Identical Post-Elections LawSuits, which are Already Foreseable in the Immediate Future : i.e. 2022, 2024, etc., added to various individual ByElections, etc., as long as these Legal Electoral Matters are Not Clearly Settled yet...         

    + A Similar Trend, (Urging to Judge Now, instead of Skiping Important Pending Electoral Issues, leaving them UnSolved), is clearly Visible Also at the Following Dissending Opinions of 2 More Associate Justices, Alito and Gorsuch :

- Those 2 SCOTUS' Judges, (one Experienced, and anOther Young), Focus mainly on Slaming Dems' and RINOS' alleged Claim that "a Perfect Storm", as they Name the Circumstances of Nov. 3, 2020 Controversial US Presidetial Election, (which Added the Virus' "Pandemic", "Mail-in Voting" and "Postal Service Delays"), would be "ExtraOrdinary and UnPrecedented", to the point  to also be "Not Likely to Recur" in the foreseable Future, (i.e. remaining a "One Off" Event).

>>> Instead, SCOTUS' Judges Alito and Gorshus                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Argue, in Fact, that those Nov. 3, 2020 Incidents might act, also in the Future, as a kind of ...illegal "Virus", (one would say), adversely Affecting even Other Elections in the Foreseable Future, Because Dems' and RINOS'    Opposite Claim would "Fail for 3 Reasons" :

(1) First of all, "the Breadth" of that Issue is much Wider than what acknowledge Dems+RINOS : In fact, Any Local Court, (Often a ...Single Judge, usualy Apointed on Partisan Criteria), at Any among the 50 States, could "Override" Any "Rules Adopted by the Parliament" of that State "for the conduct of Federal Elections", (i.e. for the US President, the USA Senate and/or House of Representatives, etc), Nonobstant the US Constitution's General Principle that such an Important Responsibility is Reserved Exclusively for the States' Parliament's themselves. I.e. a Very Large and Vital Area of the Country's Electoral Life, could be Infected...     

(2) In Addition, such Problems are "Surely Capable of Repetition in Future" Elections, i.e. could Replicate themselves, Like a Dangerous Virus (sic !) : -"Indeed, it would be Surprizing if parties UnHappy with the (Electoral) Rules fixed by a State's Parliament, do ...not ask a State's Court    to Mutate them for something that They Find more Profitable"...

(3) Moreover, for that purpose, (i.e. that Law Virus' Replication : Comp. Supra), "it's Not Necessary to see a Recurrence of the Exact Circumstances we saw this Fall", "in order for a Question to be Capable of Repetition", Neither for "History to Repeat itslf at a very High Level of Specificity".

F.ex., mutatis-mutandis, a State's Court may "Find that Conditions at the Time of a Future Federal Election are materially Similar to those Last Fall".

Among others, "the Primary Election for Pennsylvania Congressional Candidates is Scheduled to occur in 15 Months, and the Rules for the Conduct of Elections should be Established well in Advance".. We may Hope, by Next Spring, the Pandemic will No Longer Affect Daily Life, But that is UnCertain"...

-------------------

    - However, if even that "New Virus", of "Legal UnCertainty", (Comp. Supra : Alito and Gorsuch's Disseding), is Not Timely "Vaccinated" by a Crystal-Clear SCOTUS' judicial Solution Nowadays, then, What happens Now with the Worse "New Legal Virus" : that of Threat for Massive Fraud/Gross Irregularities in EU Elections, (Comp. Supra: Thomas' Disseding) which Treatens to be Even Faster and Wider "Replicated", mutatis-mutandis, inevitably Provoking a Huge "Gap" in Citizens' Trust to the European Electoral and Political Governing System ?

    - Apparently, Nothing Good !... Nobody can Trust as "Healthy" a System which ...Abandons and Shoots Down Natural Human Immunity against any "Virus of Fraud" or other Sickness, Hinders even the slightest available "Therapy" Drug, Blocks, Delays or Abandons Any Real "Vaccine", (Pushing Only some Ridiculous "Snowman" or "Hibanjee" "Gene-Manips" of UnKnown Yet Effects, and which Scandalously Infect all the Rest of the World, by "Asymptomatic" Zobies), and Stubornly Refuses Any "Investigation" or even simple Public Debate, at least on the Existence of such a Deadly, Anti-Democratic "Fraud/Electoral Irregularties' Virus", and What Can be Done to Tackle it asap., (Preferring to Hinder, Block and Persecute all those who Protest, Ask for a Full Enquiry and Anti-Fraud Measures, Slander and Trap them, Murder by Gun-Shot, Crush to Death, Kill them by "Strokes", Push them to "Suicides" -including even Policemen, amidst a Wider "Witch-Hunt" Hystery- Arrest, Charge and Jail them, among a Larger Censorship and Muzzling of Dissident Voices even at Private, "Social Medias" at the Internet, (etc), Imposing an UnProven "Official Version" on "Hotly Disputed" Events, Throwing Dissidents' Personal Data by the Window, Exposing their Personal Data, Home, Family and Kids even to Thugs, Obliging them to Resign from their Jobs,  Spreading a Poisonous, Hysteric Neo-Cold War "Maccarthysm", with a Former People-Friendly "House" transformed into an Hostile "Buncker", added Fences, Barbed Wire, EveryDay Tight Curfew, 50.000 Soldiers with Heavy Machine-Guns, (etc), in Nowadays USA.

Loaded Guns pointed or even shot on Unarmed Protestors Murdered a Woman, another was "Crushed", while 1 Persecuted former Demonstrator was pushed to Suicide, added to at least 2 more Suicides among Policemen while "WitchHunt" Spread against Officers suspected t be -Pro-Trump, 3 Different Versions circulated on why Sicknck "collapsed in his Office" at a Late Hour of the Next Day, as 3 Capitol Police Heads were Forced to "Resign", Demonstators were Hindered to Meet and Speak to Any of their Elected Representatives, Heavily Equiped and Armed "Riot Police" Started to Violently throw to the Floor, Flash-Gas-Bomb and Kick Out All Demonstrators from Every Capitol's Premises (Gardens Included), an Immediate, since 6 pm "Curfew", was Imposed throughout Wash. DC, More than 50.000 Soldiers with Heavy Machine Guns, participated in such an UnPrecedented Military "Coup", with Fences, Barbed Wires and stict Interdictions of Circulation of any People until and beyond a Forced, Army-Backed, Inauguration of Biden on Jan. 20 through exceptionaly Deserted Avenues, After having Started Massive MaHunts, Slandering, Persecutions and Arrests of several Hundreds of former Demonstrators (Systematicaly pushed to immediately Resign from their Jobs) throughout the Country, and Many Jailed, even acting President rump's Personal Accounts to Social Medias were Permanently Suppressed, as well as for Many Other Political and/or Legal Dissidents Criticizing 2020 Electoral Fraud/Gross Irregularities (including Lawyers, Book Writers, etc), relevant Videos Blocked at the Web, Establishment's Medias systematicaly Censored any Mention of alleged Fraud/Irregularities in 2020 Controversial Presidential Vote Row, Bullying, Harassing, Muzzling, Attacking and Threatening Any Dissident Voice, (Even of Elected USA Federal Senators included), former President Trump, Lawyers, etc., were Persecuted, while Any Scheduled Official Public Debate in the Congress on the 2020 Presidential Election Row had been Immediately Stopped among Senators and Representatives, Contrary to the Notorious Aim of that Jan. 6 , 2021 Certification Process, Brutaly Interrupted and Hindered to Resume, Shortly After the First Exchanges,(Fully Registered by semi-official C-Span) Clearly Proved that Dems Seeked to desperately Avoid Any Public Dialogue, point by point, on concrete Facts and Arguments presented by Republicans on the alleged 2020 Electoral Fraud/Gross Irregularities... (which was Completely Muzzled after that Jan.6, 2021 Military Coup : See also http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/usacapitolclashonelectionfraud.html + ..., etc).                                                                                                                                -------------------

 

+ Moreover,  "an Election System Lacks Clear Rules when, as here, Different Officials Dispute Who has Authority to set or Change those rules. (F.ex. any State's Court, or the State's Parliament Only). This ...brews Confusion, because Voters may Not Know Which Rules to follow. Even Worse, with More than one System of Rules in place, Competing Candidates , Thomas Warned.

And severeal Recent Articles, including Published at New York Times, note the Fact that "Voting by Mail is, Now, Common enough, and Problematic enough, that Election Experts say there have been Multiple Elections (Recently) in which No One Can Say, with Confidence, Which Candidate was the deserved Winner !" (sic)...

=> "Because Fraud is More prevalent with Mail-in ballots (Comp. Supra), Increased use of those ballots raises the likelihood that Courts will be asked to Adjudicate Questions that go to the Heart of Election Confidence", he Warned.

>>> "But, ...an Election Free from strong Evidence of systemic Fraud is Not alone Sufficient for election Confidence", the Experienced SCOTUS' VPresident went on to Add :  + Because "Also Important is the ASSURANCE THAT FRAUD WILL NOT GO UNDETECTED !", he Moreover stressed.

+ In Addition, "the Issue presented is capable of Repetition" (Comp. Supra). Indeed, "there is a reasonable Expectation that the Same complaining party (GOP) will be subject to the Same action (alleged Fraude/Gross Irrgularities by Dems) Again", in the foreseable Future, he Warned.

=> It's about "Testing Allegations of Systemic MalAdministration, Voter Suppression, or Fraud, that go to the Heart of Public Confidence in Election Results", SCOTUS' Experienced VPresident underlined.

>>> "That is obviously Problematic for allegations backed by substantial evidence. But the Same is true where Allegations are incorrect. After all “[C]onfidence in the Integrity of our Electoral process is Essential to the Functioning of our participatory Democracy", Justice Thomas reminded, Pointing at "a Compelling Interest in rooting out the mere “Appearance of Corruption” in the Political process", (according to the World-Famous Ancient Moto that "it's not enough for Cesar's Wife to be Honest : She must, also, Look Honest !")...

NB => Indeed, "an incorrect Allegation, Left to Fester, withOut a robust Mechanism to Test and DisProve it, “Drives Honest Citizens Out of the Democratic process and breeds Distrust of our Government", he observed.

 - "Here, We (SCOTUS) have the Opportunity"..."to Address these admittedly Important Questions", so that "our Refusal to do so, by Hearing these Cases, is Befuddling !"... In Fact, "there is a clear Split (among SCOTUS' Members) on an Issue of such Great Importance", that "there is No Dispute that the Claim is Sufficiently Meritorious to Warrant Review".

+ Moreover, "the Issue presented is Capable of Repetition, (Comp. Supra), Yet Evades review", Even if "there is a reasonable Expectation that the Same Complaining Party will be subject to the Same Action Again.”... => In Conseqence, "one Wonders What this Court (SCOTUS' Dems + RINOS) Waits for ?"...

>>> "The Decision to LEAVE ELECTION LAW HIDDEN BENEATH a Shroud of DOUBT, IS BAFFLING !", SCOTUS' Experienced VPresident Denounced.

=> "BY DOING NOTHING, WE (SCOTUS) INVITE Further CONFUSION and EROSION OF VOTER CONFIDENCE", he Warned, in Conclusion.

 -  "Our fellow CITIZENS DESERVE BETTER and EXPECT MORE of us..."


    So, that's how BIDDEN's Controversial Presidency is, from Now on, CONDEMNED by USA's Supreme Court to be uncomfortably Sitting on "a Shrout of DOUBT" (sic !), "Leaving the Electoral LAW HIDDEN BENEATH" his back ... (CQFD : Comp. supra).

Sarkozy and Merkel : June 2009 solution to May 2005 "NO" ?

 - Will French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angie Merkel live up from June 2009 to their obvious Historic European mission to revitalize, and re-launch the "European Dream", after the series of 3 "NO" since May 2005 in France, the Netherlands and Ireland, by renewing, and changing the EU with fresh stimulus, big horizons, and values attractive for EU Citizens ?

Whatever views anyone might have, it's a Fact that, recently, EU's political spectrum didn't produce other more charismatic and popular EU leaders than Merkel and Sarkozy, starting from September 2005 and May 2007, respectively.

This trend was confirmed, in one way or another, both during the German EU presidency in 2007 (shared by Merkel with the SPD), and mainly during the French EU Presidency in 2008, (with Sarkozy "free" to move).


The positive 2009 EU Polls are a natural consequence :

- Both with 72% Sarkozy and Merkel are considered by EU Citizens to be "the most Influential" leaders in Europe, by far.

- They are the only EU political leaders to attract a Majority of "Positive" views by EU Citizens, (Merkel over 60%, Sarkozy over 50%, particularly in the continent).

- 60% of EU Citizens find the 2008 French EU Presidency "Good", (and the satisfaction grows up to 67,5% in continental Europe).

The Poll was made by "OpinionWay" in big EU countries as Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK, (with the only exception of France), from 26 to 28 May 2009.

sarkozy_merkel_polls_400

But the most important is that both Franco-German leaders seem willing to, at last, really start serious business on EU's indispensable renovation and Renaissance from 2009 : Year of crucial EU and German Elections.

Therefore, this time, the joint European move by Sarkozy and Merkel, which just published a common Franco-German Manifesto, aims to stimulate aspirations and action not only in their respective countries, but also in many other EU "partners", as they say.

Both on EU economy, social values and scientifico-technologic research, as well as on Turkey's controversial EU bid, obviously incompatible with a popular Political Europe, whose Citizens can find a collective Identity and popular Values, they have already started to magnetize various growing voices accross the European landscape :

"Today, more than ever, it' time for action", they stress from the outset.

Facing "an unprecedented Global financial and economic Crisis", "Europeans must get resolutely involved if they want for the World which is being built to meet their Values of Liberty, Solidarity and Justice".

"That's what we want" and "propose to our Partners" :

* "A strong Europe, able to protect us" :

- "We refuse a Bureaucratic EU, which mecanically applies burdensome rules and is afraid of change. We want a European Union which listens what Citizens have to say, which innovates, stimulates".

- "We want a strong and united EU in the World, while also respecting its Member States' Diversity", which "brings Courageous Replies to the Questions of our Times, ensuring our Prosperity :  

This implies to "favor Research and Innovation", "Economic Coordination", to "develop real Policies on Immigrationn, Energy, Defence, and modernise  common policies, particularly Agriculture".

*  "EU must bring immediate replies to the Global Crisis".

- "Lawless liberalism failed". "The Model we want is that of a Responsible Market Economy, which favors Enterpreneurs and Workers, above Speculators ;  Long-term Investment, over immediate profiits".

- "We appeal upon the EU to take, from June, the first decisions to ensure a real European Regulation of Financial Markets, based on coordination and cooperation". "On speculative funds, on fiscal heavens, CEO's and financial operators' earnings, EU must give the example".

- "We call to change the rules of accounts, which are important for our Economy's revival : The competent normative authorities must take action". "The issue of a sufficient Credit offer is of central importance for our Economy". "We don't accept that, during this Financial Crisis, the European Banks' capacity to lend money might be unjustly reduced by Capital's requirements and accountant's rules

* "During the German and French Presidencies, EU has resoçlutely prepared itself for the fight against Global Warming... EU is the 1st and only area in the World to have adopted a package of ambitious and legally binding rules to comply with International Aims"

- "We have now to convince our Friends and Partners, to get involved, in order to atteint, next December at Copenhagen, a Global Agreement worthy of whay is at stake. Our closer ally, the US, but also other big industrial countries, must commit themselves with the same force as the Europeans".

"Green Growth is a Chance ... and an opportunity to create jobs turned towards the Future. Europe must be a leader".

- But, at the same time, we must ensure that our companies remain competitive in the World. The ambitious European involvements on Climat must not lead into a position where EU industry might become a Victim of Unfair Competition. Climat protection and Competitvity must go together. If our International partners refuse to associate themselves to our efforts, we are determined to take measures to protect European Industry"

* "Europe must be more ambitious for its Industry" : "It must favor the emergence of strong European enterprises at a Global level".

- "As long as an International mechanism" to "monitor Public Aids at WTO level, and hinder 3rd Countries to give abusive subsidies to their enterprises, provoking unfair competition", is "not yet set up, we must consider Transitory European Solutions".

* "The current Public Debt is too heavy... We must head anew towards sound public finance, as soon as we'd have passed the crucial stage in this crisis".
-------------------------------------------------

* Last, but not least :  "Europe must play a top-level role in the World"

- "For that purpose,  it needs efficient Institutions. That's why we need Lisbon Treaty". "The 27 Member States decided, last December (2008) that the Treaty should enter into force before the end of this year (2009)". To obtain that, June EU Council must agree "on the Guarantees for Ireland".

- But, "to be able to act, EU needs Borders. An Enlargment without Limits is not possible", Sarkozy and Merkel stressed in an obvious reference to Turkey, etc.

- "In order to be strong, Europe must assume its Values and its Identity". "Human Rights .. are at the basis of our commitment for a Peaceful Development accross the World".

- "For that purpose, we shall strengthen our common Defence and Security policy".
----------------------

* "We are ready to contribute to activate the EU towards the realisation of these aims, with our EU Partners".

"In order to succeed", Europe  "needs the active involvment of all, starting by Citizens themselves. That's why the June 7 rendez-vous is important", and "we are calling all Europeans to vote".

"We are convinced that, if Europe wants, Europe can", they conclude.
-----------------------

Precisely : - What can better forge "Europe's Will" than a "European Consciousness" emerging from political, democratic struggles to face Global Challenges, and open big New Horizons, including by crystal-clear Public Debates, with active EU Citizens' involvement, before the most important EU Decisions affecting People's lives ?

Precisely what "EuroFora"s project warns since 1997-2007, and unprecedented Majority Abstentions, since 1999-2004, added to 3 "NO" to EU Referenda in 2005 and 2007, proved meanwhile..

Let's hope that the Time wasted by some scandalous anti-European and anti-Democratic obstacles of the Past, will stimulate faster, simplified but substantial and persistent, efficient action.-

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
