Yesterday The Duran’s Alexander Mercouris reported on Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi’s landslide defeat in the Italian constitutional referendum, which subsequently triggered the PM’s resignation, “creating a period of instability as Italy wrestles with a burgeoning banking crisis.”
These last eight months have seen the entire globalist “rat pack” picked off, one-by-one, via election or referendum.
Renzi was not a full fledged member of the neo-liberal cabal that has ushered in a decade of chaos and inequality, as the Italian PM was often an outspoken critic of various EU policies…but the Italian public voted, and felt that while Renzi may not have been cut from the same cloth as a Merkel or Obama, he was nonetheless close enough to the globalist “rat pack” that he had to go.
One by one, all the men and women that lead the world into misery are being given “das boot”. Merkel must be feeling very lonely right about now.

As Will Jordan notes, the photo showed a meeting of the world’s top political leaders, President Barack Obama talking with European leaders before their meeting in Hannover, Germany.

As of this evening, of the five, just one remains on the global political scene. The real question is for how much longer.
