It’s easy to see why the globalist Giuseppe Conte hates and fears Matteo Salvini. Salvini represents the freedom movement that is sweeping the world. He has said: “Between Italy, the United States, Israel, Brazil, Poland and Hungary, there is a closeness in their vision of the world, of rights and values.” He has also been among the few who have noted correctly that anti-Semitism in Europe is coming from Muslim communities.

Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, addressing Parliament after it was recalled from summer recess to decide the future of the 14-month-old government, accused League party chief Matteo Salvini of seeking to cash in on his rising popularity.
“[Salvini] has shown that he is following his own interests and those of his party,” an angry Conte told a packed Senate, a stony-faced Salvini sitting by his side.

Conte, who belongs to neither of the coalition’s two parties, said he would hand in his resignation later in the day, allowing the head of state to start formal consultations with parties to see if a new coalition can be formed.
Failing that, President Sergio Mattarella would have to dissolve Parliament, 3½ years ahead of schedule, a move that could trigger elections as early as the autumn.
Financial markets rallied on Conte’s resignation, seemingly hopeful that snap polls could be avoided amid reports the ruling 5-Star Movement might seek an alliance with the center-left opposition Democratic Party.
Salvini at times shook his head, rolled his eyes or nodded to League senators as the prime minister accused him of being “irresponsible,” “reckless,” “alarming” and “disrespectful.”…
