    A 25-year-old man has been sentenced to two years and six months in prison by Denmark’s High Court for making and possessing a bomb. Somalian citizen Libaan Ahmed Warsame has also been sentenced with conditional deportation from Denmark. He was found guilty of making and storing a bomb in the basement of an apartment building on the Peter Fabers Vej residential street in Aarhus. The device was discovered by a resident in the building in October 2016, and the area was closed off for several areas as armed police evacuated the block and arrested Warsame. A bomb disposal unit was...

    Denmark and other countries are determined to see through the 2015 Paris climate agreement, Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen said as environment ministers from 190 countries met in the German city of Bonn on Tuesday at the UN’s COP23 climate summit. Much of the discussion at the summit will revolve around US President Donald Trump’s announcement earlier this year that his country — which the world’s second-largest carbon dioxide emissions — would pull out of the December 2015 agreement. But other countries are determined to see the agreement through, regardless of the message sent by the United States, according...

    Denmark’s nationalist Danish People’s Party (Dansk Folkeparti, DF) wants to change rules to prevent foreign citizens from running in municipal and regional elections. Parliament will on Thursday open discussion of a proposal by the party to introduce rules requiring non-Danish citizens to pass an extended Danish language test before being approved to run in the elections, TV2 reported on Wednesday. Opposition MPs and an international candidate in the 2017 regional elections have voiced their opposition to DF’s stance. Martin Henriksen, immigration spokesperson with DF, told TV2 that his party would prefer Danish citizens only to run in the elections. With...

    An analysis has revealed that as many as 15 percent of Copenhagen residents eligible to vote in Denmark’s upcoming municipal and regional elections are citizens of countries other than Denmark. The report, published by Copenhagen-based thinktank Tænketanken Europa, also shows that EU citizens alone make up eight percent of the non-Danish citizens eligible to vote in Copenhagen. Citizens of other EU countries plus Norway and Iceland, as well as other non-Danish nationals who have lived in the country for three years or more prior to the election, are all eligible to participate in the November 21st municipal and regional polls....

    Denmark’s minister for Immigration and Integration, Inger Støjberg, was hastily evacuated from the Sjælsmark deportation center for rejected asylum seekers after tensions escalated during a tense visit to the facility. Støjberg was escorted from the center by security guards after an incident while she was visiting the center, reports broadcaster DR. The minister was at the Sjælsmark deportation center as part of filming for the broadcaster’s 21 Søndag current affairs program, according to the report. Red-Green Alliance MP Johanne Schmidt-Nielsen was also at the center in connection with the program. The group had visited a family accommodated at the facility...

    Eight Danish pension funds have been criticized after investing over 140 million kroner (€19 million) in US electric car giant Tesla. The investments, details of which were published by media Ugebrevet A4, have been censured due to Tesla’s policy of banning unions along with its reputation for low wages and high incidence of workplace accidents, reports news agency Ritzau. “The way I see it, the pension funds ought to withdraw from a company that oppresses its employees and forbids unions,” job market researcher Henning Jørgensen, a professor at Aalborg University, told Ugebrevet A4. “This is a question of withdrawing as...

  • A Visit to Tivoli: There's something terribly rotten in the state of Denmark.

    Smack dab in the center of Copenhagen is an amusement park called Tivoli. First opened in 1843, it's a special place. I always found Disneyland agitating, garish, and strangely disturbing – big and sprawling and fake and always insanely crowded, not just an amusement park but something more like a would-be alternate reality where you're condemned to the hell of spending eternity queued up for some two-minute diversion surrounded by shrieking, ill-mannered children. (I've so far managed to avoid visiting Disney World.) Tivoli's not like that. It's like a Japanese garden, modest and charming and meticulously put together. There's a...

    On Monday, NBC’s Today finally discovered the elusive secret to happiness – European-style socialism. While taking a bicycle tour of Copenhagen with National Geographic’s Dan Buettner, correspondent Cynthia McFadden proclaimed: “For 40 years Denmark has ranked as one of the happiest places on Earth....the Danes make life less stressed and more joyful.” How you might ask? The reporter explained: “Here, no job is less than any other....[garbage man] Alan Christensen works just five hours a day, but earns the same as a school teacher.” Buettner proclaimed: “Ambition is not celebrated. No matter what you do, you’re no better than anybody...

    The Danish government announced on Thursday that it was extending controls at its border with Germany. In a letter to the EU, Copenhagen cited the security risk posed by people fleeing deportation orders south of the border. “The large number of illegal migrants and rejected asylum seekers who are awaiting deportation in Germany are a real security threat,” the Danish government wrote in a letter to the EU justifying the decision to extend border controls. There is “a risk that terror groups will take advantage of their precarious situation,” the letter stated. The Danish government implemented border controls in January...

    Less than a quarter of Danes oppose a ban on the burqa and niqab, according to a new survey. A majority of the population support banning the two types of Islamic veil in public, according to an opinion poll carried out by Epinion on behalf of broadcaster DR. According to the poll, 62 percent said they support a full ban on wearing the burqa and niqab in public, while 23 percent said the veils should continue to be allowed. 12 percent responded “do not know”, while three percent declined to answer the question. Last week, a Danish model agency announced...

    Denmark’s booming wind industry has set a number of impressive records in recent years. From wind turbines accounting for the highest proportion of domestic electricity use ever produced in any country, to having the first windmill to ever pass the 100 million kWh mark or setting a record for the lowest price on wind power, Denmark’s windmills have often been the envy of the world. But last week, the nation’s fleet of windmills set a record of another kind. Broadcaster DR reported on Monday that final figures have revealed that September 18th was the least productive day in the history...

    Denmark’s integration minister, Inger Støjberg, took to Facebook on Tuesday to praise the Mohammed cartoons that a dozen years ago plunged her country into its most severe international crisis ever. Støjberg shared a screenshot of her iPad background displaying cartoonist Kurt Westergaard’s drawing of the prophet Mohammed wearing a bomb in his turban. She did so in response to the decision by Skovgaard Museum in Viborg to not display the 12 caricatures of Mohammed published by Jyllands-Posten newspaper as part of an exhibition on blasphemy. The integration minister said that the drawings, particularly the one by Westergaard that has led...

    The irony of this is sweet. Consider it for just a moment, will you? In America leftists are currently fighting to end Freedom of Speech, based on the grounds that “hate speech” is not free speech. In Europe, free speech does not exist… just like the leftists want. So a leftist American woman travels abroad, to Denmark and walks into a bar. At this point she notices that the man seated across from her is wearing a #MAGA hat which “triggers” the woman and sends her into a rage. As the woman’s anger escalates, one of the other patrons begins...

    Denmark has signed an agreement to provide water purification technology to the thirsty coastal US state of California, in a deal that could bring millions into the Danish economy. The west coast state will spend millions of dollars over the coming years on improving water quality and reducing waste. The deal signed with the Danish Ministry for Food and the Environment will provide the opportunity for Danish business to be involved in that development, the ministry said in a press statement. Minister Esben Lunde Larsen, who signed the agreement, said the Californian market was ideal for Danish water technology. Although...

    Rule of law is imploding in Denmark as “low-tech jihad” and migrant gangs take over the streets. The Danish government should not be surprised. But it appears to be. Thousands of incidents involving loosened wheel bolts on cars, large rocks or cinder blocks thrown from highway overpasses, and thin steel wires strung across bicycle paths meant to decapitate unsuspecting cyclists, is spreading a growing sense of horror among the Danes. In almost all cases, the perpetrators have turned out to be from MENAP countries (Middle East, North Africa, Pakistan).

    Denmark’s government will give 315 million kroner (€42 million) to support women in conflict and war zones, with US president Donald Trump having withdrawn American support in the area. Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen confirmed to broadcaster DR that the government would pledge more money to women at risk of rape, human trafficking and being married against their will. Funds are particularly needed in those areas in the current political climate, Rasmussen said. “We have a president sitting in the White House who has withdrawn from all international collaboration related to family planning,” the PM told DR. Earlier this year,...
