    President Trump resisted some intense lobbying by leaders of other industrialized nations Friday to back the Paris climate-change agreement at a G-7 summit in Sicily, Italy. After hours of discussions, Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni told reporters that the U.S. position on the Paris accord remains an “open question.” “All others have confirmed their total agreement on the accord,” he said of the leaders of Germany, Japan, Italy, Britain, France and Canada. Former President Barack Obama signed the Paris agreement to limit carbon emissions in 2015, but Mr. Trump is weighing a move to pull the U.S. out of the...

    The husband of Luxembourg's gay Prime Minister Xavier Bettel has been mingling with the wives and girlfriends of other world leaders during the NATO conference. Gauthier Destenay, a Belgian architect, joined the likes of US First Lady Melania Trump in Brussels on Thursday while their partners were off discussing world matters. The First Gentleman, who married his Prime Minister husband in 2015, posed for photos with the group of women at Royal Castle of Laeken on Thursday evening ahead of a dinner especially for spouses.

    Brace yourselves, deplorables for a MSM-created preacher who is a cross somewhere between Elmer Gantry and the America-cursing Rev. Jeremiah Wright with a little Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan thrown in for good measure. German chancellor Angela Merkel and the trash tabloid headlines supermarket shoppers read while waiting to cash out have much in common: Both are unwilling to let former President Barack Obama go and live in a fantasy world where he’s still president. “Obama will deliver a speech alongside German chancellor Angela Merkel at Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate. The Obama Foundation says the invitation from Merkel came before...
  • Non-Western Immigrants Consume 59% Of Denmark’s Tax Revenue

    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...

    It happened again last week. Two Turkish nationals in Schwerin, Germany were arrested for raping a 13-year-old girl after forcing themselves into her home.Recently, a judge in Germany acquitted a Turkish drug dealer of raping one of his customers last August. He had forced himself on her for four hours and left her incapacitated for weeks. He told the judge that in the culture from where he came, what she "had experienced as rape" might be considered merely "wild sex."What "culture" is this?According to the Turkish women's rights organization "We Will Stop the Murders of Women," which publishes monthly reports,...

    Young Swiss women will be obliged to attend an “information day” about military service from 2020 in order to encourage more to join the army, according to reports. Currently, military or civil service is compulsory for all Swiss men over 18, who must pay an exemption tax if they are excluded due to health reasons or refuse to serve. It is not compulsory for women, but they may choose to volunteer. Last year, only around 65 women out of 7,600 recruits began their service. In February this year, army commander Daniel Baumgartner said in an interview that he wanted to...

    We are 24 hours into another horrific terrorist attack committed by the insane, murdering disciples of Allah. Last night, in Manchester, England, a suicide bomber, identified as Salman Abedi detonated a massive bomb filled with nails. The explosion killed 22 and wounded 59 and the numbers are still rising. Those killed and wounded were young girls and teenagers who were attending an Ariana Grande concert. Right now, parents are still searching for their children who unaccounted for. That’s right. The target was young girls. Those who target children are out to commit genocide. This attack is just another in a...

    Core EU powers France and Germany vowed Monday to accelerate eurozone integration, with a new bilateral panel to work out ways to kickstart the reform process. “We’ve been talking about progress in eurozone integration for years, but things are not moving fast enough,” said France’s new Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire in Berlin after talks with his German counterpart Wolfgang Schäuble. “We have now decided to get things going more quickly and further in a very concrete manner,” he said. Schäuble agreed that “we are convinced that Germany and France must take a leading role” in strengthening the European Union...

    Europe, the United Kingdom, and Russia have witnessed terror attacks or attempted attacks every nine days in 2017 on average, analysis of security incidents has revealed. Since January, around 45 people have been killed by mostly Islamic terrorists, while hundreds have been injured. The only known incident not linked to jihadism in 2017 was the attack on the Borussia Dortmund soccer team by a Russian-German national attempting to profit from short-selling stock in the company. Attacks and attempted attacks have taken place in Austria, France, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Italy, Russia, Sweden, Norway, and Germany. Security services in Britain —...

Experts predict 10 per cent of pork imported from Europe has the strain and...

    The elections in Holland took place on the 15th of March. What has happened since that day? Not a damn thing. Parties* are negotiating. Not all the time, though. Yasser Feras (Jesse Klaver) wants to spend time with his kids. So he insists on ‘daddy days’. No negotiating on a daddy day. Or we don’t negotiate because mommy Klaver died. Rest assured, an ultra-left cabinet is in the making. The Dutch electorate voted somewhat conservatively. The Labor Party (PvdA) was virtually murdered from 38 seats down to 9 seats. Voters weren’t too happy with the conservatives (VVD) either, they went...

    Forget all the claims and protestations about “families of nations” and a “new Europe” and “the European project.” The European Union, and especially the eurozone, is a German empire. The new capital of Europe is not Brussels — let alone Strasbourg, the home of the European Parliament — but Berlin. The ultimate power of the EU is not the president of the European Commission, but the chancellor of Germany. That’s the takeaway from “Adults in the Room: My Battle With Europe’s Deep Establishment,” the sensational memoir by the ill-fated, but colorful, former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis.

    Friends who visit Europe with large families in tow tell me they soon become “tourist attractions” themselves.Europeans are used to Muslims with large families. But Americans? People from a prosperous developed nation? How odd. Don’t they know that children get in the way of self-fulfillment? That population growth is bad for the environment?The visiting Americans with large families are almost invariably Christians—another segment of European society that, along with children, seems to be on the way out. In 2016 more than 90,000 people dropped out of the Church of Sweden, and Norway’s State Church lost more than 25,000 members...

    NATO is scrambling to tailor its upcoming meeting to avoid taxing President Donald Trump’s notoriously short attention span. The alliance is telling heads of state to limit talks to two to four minutes at a time during the discussion, several sources inside NATO and former senior U.S. officials tell Foreign Policy. And the alliance scrapped plans to publish the traditional full post-meeting statement meant to crystallize NATO’s latest strategic stance. On May 25, NATO will host the heads of state of all 28 member countries in what will be Trump’s first face-to-face summit with an alliance he bashed repeatedly while...

    In the land of NIRP refugees and “Reverse Yankees,” who will get crushed? At the end of the week, something special happened, something totally absurd but part of the new normal: the average yield of euro-denominated junk bonds – the riskiest, non-investment-grade corporate bonds – dropped to the lowest level ever: 2.77%. April 26 had marked another propitious date in the annals of the ECB’s negative yield absurdity: the average euro-denominated junk bond yield had dropped below 3% for the first time ever. By comparison, what is considered the most liquid and safe debt, the 10-year US Treasury, carries a...

    The world, in its ignorance, is racing rapidly a day of reckoning. The recent election of Marcon of France, raises many questions about the future of Europe. Erdogan is rattling his spiritual sabre. Millions of Muslim's are waiting to rush into Europe, setting off a population bomb that will fulfill the second arm of Jihad. Will it be Muslim controlled within 10 years? And then there's the professor who attempts to make the argument that showing graphic pictures of dismembered babies is akin to "child pornography", proving that people who are wise in their own minds are complete reprobate when...

    Authorities in Hamburg, the second-largest city in Germany, have begun confiscating private dwellings to ease a housing shortage — one that has been acutely exacerbated by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision to allow more than two million migrants into the country in recent years. City officials have been seizing commercial properties and converting them into migrant shelters since late 2015, when Merkel opened German borders to hundreds of thousands of migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Now, however, the city is expropriating residential property units owned by private citizens. In an unprecedented move, Hamburg authorities recently confiscated six residential...

    When we hear the name Le Pen in relation to French politics it’s most often a reference to Marine Le Pen, the losing candidate in the recent presidential elections. But this is something of a family business and the latest headline has to do with her niece, Marion Marechal-Le Pen. She was the youngest woman elected to the legislature since the French Revolution and has been widely viewed as more of a rival to her aunt than a teammate because of her distinctly more socially conservative views. Her time in the political spotlight is over now, however, at least for...

    Despite what the politically correct cultists claim, all cultures are not equal and cultures that do not respect women do not deserve to be respected. But that is not what is happening. Europe seems to be adopting the approach of Islamic sharia law to rape and rape victims.PJ Media reported on April 21:A German judge has acquitted a Turkish man of rape, despite the fact that he forced a woman to have sex with him, and left her incapacitated. The judge argued that in “the mentality of the Turkish cultural circle,” what the woman “had experienced as rape” might be considered merely “wild sex.”...
