    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give 315 million kroner (€42 million) to support women in conflict and war zones, with US president Donald Trump having withdrawn American support in the area.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 “We have a president sitting in the White House who has withdrawn from all international collaboration related to family planning,” the PM told DR.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,...

    Aarhus Municipality has given an anti-abortion protest group 48 hours to remove stickers from public areas in the city. The group, Retten til Liv (Right to Life), placed 20,000 of its stickers in various places around Aarhus during the weekend, reports broadcaster DR. One version of the stickers pictures a fetus with a speech bubble containing the words “Pssst! After 8 weeks, my body is ready; now it just needs to grow!” The group has now been informed by Aarhus Municipality that the stickers must be removed. […] Ellen Højlund Wibe, national secretary with the anti-abortion organization, told DR that...

    Denmark’s government is seeking to introduce requirements which will limit the access of foreign residents to the country’s welfare system. Savings made from new curbs could help to finance tax cuts in several areas announced by the government on Tuesday, reports broadcaster DR. New regulations proposed by the government would prevent in principle non-Danish citizens from being eligible for certain welfare payments (known in Danish as overførselsindkomster) from their first day in the country. “I was keen for people to be unable to come to Denmark and receive welfare payments before entering the labor market,” Finance Minister Kristian Jensen told...

    When the UC3 Nautilus sailed from the Port of Copenhagen on the evening of Aug. 10, the homemade submarine bore just two people: its famed Danish inventor and the Swedish journalist reporting on his invention. Less than a day later, only one of them was still alive. Peter Madsen's submarine sank midday Aug. 11; he was rescued by a private boat, but journalist Kim Wall was nowhere to be found. It was Wall's boyfriend who reported her missing, and authorities wasted no time in arresting the 46-year-old Madsen after he came ashore, charging him that same day with manslaughter and...

    Denmark’s governing coalition has shelved plans to make changes to the country’s top tax bracket, which would have effected tax cuts for the wealthiest people in the country. No parliamentary negotiations on changes to taxation of Denmark’s highest earners will take place during the autumn, Liberal Alliance (LA) leader and foreign minister Anders Samuelsen told DR Nyheder. Samuelsen said that a proposal for reducing the size of the bracket of people qualifying to pay top-end tax rates would not be part of a new tax plan to be presented by the coalition government. […] The announcement comes after the populist...

    Police in the city of Aarhus, Denmark introduced the scheme after 36 young men travelled to Syria to join jihad, with 19 returning back to the country. But the policy has been criticised by Danish MPs, with Naser Khadeer – a Muslim member of the Conservative People’s party – calling for a hardline approach to foreign fighters. Speaking on the Australian news programme Dateline, he said: “What I have criticised when it comes to the Aarhus model is when you have been in Syria and you come back, it is wrong in my opinion to reward whoever has been in...

    Let’s face it, this has hardly felt like summer. Now we’ve got the numbers to prove it. According to the Danish Meteorology Institute (DMI), July is likely to end without a single “summer day”, which is defined as any day in which temperatures top 25°C (77°F) at least somewhere in Denmark. If the next five days come and go without hitting 25°C as predicted, it will mark the first time that Danes will have suffered through a summer-less July in nearly four decades. […] The warmest day thus far this month was July 19th, when an almost-yet-not-quite-there 24.6°C was recorded....

    Political representatives from the Nordic and Baltic parliaments recently took part in a top-level visit to Washington. Denmark was conspicuous by its absence. Parliamentary speakers from the northern European countries met powerful US politicians and diplomats during the official visit, which took place the week before last, reports Politiken.

  • Danes Tout $340M Stanflex Frigate For US Navy – But What’s Real Cost?

    WASHINGTON: Denmark really wants you to know they have a solution for the US Navy’s frigate problem. Pentagon officials are on the record that they’ll consider foreign designs in their quest for a more powerful small warship than the $450–$550 million, 3,400-ton Littoral Combat Ship. The Danish answer: their $340 million, 6,600-ton Iver Huitfeldt “Stanflex” frigate. That’s a lot of ship for the price. But a leading US expert, Bryan Clark, tells us that the Danes may be undercounting their costs by about $50 million, since some of the frigates’ weaponry was recycled from older ships going out of service...

    As part of a weapons amnesty in Denmark, police recovered a vintage stockpile of munitions including submachine guns and grenades. The South Jutland Police posted images to social media last week of some 25 weapons and 100 grenades turned in as part of a reprieve for those with illegal or unregistered arms, many of which may have a connection to Danish history. Occupied by Germany during World War II, Denmark was home to a well-organized network of underground resistance units, often equipped by the Allies through the OSS and SOE. Among the weapons brought down from attics and up from...

    Authorities in Denmark and Sweden are set to look into the viability of a new tunnel between Helsingør in Denmark and Helsingborg in Sweden. The mooted tunnel would bring a fast connection between the two cities, which are currently directly linked by ferry. Dubbed the HH connection, the new road link would be the second to connect the neighbouring Scandinavian countries after the Öresund bridge linking Copenhagen and Malmö, which opened in 2000. Denmark’s Ministry of Transport, Building and Housing will work with Swedish authorities on a strategic analysis of the viability of the project, the Danish ministry announced on...

    The number of gay couples marrying in Danish churches has increased on a yearly basis since the law was changed in 2012. 416 same-sex couples have exchanged vows in churches around the country since the law change, according to figures from Statistics Denmark. During 2012, the first year in which same-sex weddings were allowed, 51 couples were married, compared with 105 in 2016. The total number of same-sex church weddings has increased every year since the law change came into effect. Lesbian couples form the largest proportion of the weddings, according to the report.

    Top leaders of five Nordic countries are rejecting claims that they "trolled" President Donald Trump by posing for a photo that is drawing comparisons to the US leader's now-infamous moment with a glowing orb during his trip to Saudi Arabia. The photo, which was first reported by The Hill, shows the prime ministers of Norway, Finland, Iceland, Sweden and Denmark all placing their hands on a European soccer ball -- an image that would most likely have been viewed as benign had it not surfaced just days after one of the most memorable moments from Trump's first foreign trip to...

    Denmark’s prime minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen reportedly received a rebuke from Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu over Danish support for Palestinian organizations. The two prime ministers spoke over the telephone Wednesday, reports newspaper Berlingske, citing anonymous Danish and Israeli sources.Netanyahu wished to express his displeasure at Danish state support for a number of Palestinian organizations, according to the report. Neither Denmark nor Israel has officially confirmed that the conversation took place. Last week, Netanyahu asked Danish foreign minister Anders Samuelsen to scrap Denmark’s support for Palestinian organizations during an official visit by the latter to Jerusalem. After that meeting, Samuelsen signed...
  • Non-Western Immigrants Consume 59% Of Denmark’s Tax Revenue

    National Economics Editorial ^ | May 23, 2017 | Staff
    A recent study conducted by Denmark’s Ministry of Finance concluded that in 2014, immigrants and their descendants cost Danish taxpayers at net loss of 28 billion Crowns per year. Furthermore, when Western immigrants were removed from the equation, the net cost rose to 33kr billion. Compare this to tax receipts from ethnic Danes, who contributed a surplus of 56kr billion in 2014... In short: 59% of the tax surplus collected from native Danes is spent on ethnic minorities, who are a massive drain on the system. This would be roughly equivalent to America’s federal government spending $2.1 trillion per year...

    The Jewish Community in Denmark will contact police about an imam at a mosque in Copenhagen’s Nørrebro neighborhood who encouraged attacks on Jews during a Friday service, reports newspaper Kristeligt Dagblad. The complaint will be based on a video recording of a Friday service at the Masjid al-Faruq mosque in Nørrebro on March 31st this year. The recording was translated from Arabic to English by American institute MEMRI. According to the translation, imam Mundhir Abdallah quotes a hadith — a report of a speech by the Prophet Mohammed used in Islamic scripture — which incites violence against Jews. “‘Judgment Day...

    A prophesy appearing to call for the murder of Jews repeated during a sermon at a Copenhagen mosque has caused outrage in Denmark after it was released online. Mundhir Abdallah was reported to police after being filmed repeating in Arabic an anti-Semitic hadith- a teaching of Muhammad. The verse says “Judgment Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them.” He declares a “caliphate” is coming – that is a state governed in accordance with Islamic Sharia law. It will be part of a jihad to unite the Muslim community and liberate the al-Aqsa mosque in...
