    OFFICIALS in the Swedish government have been accused of "covering up" migrant rape and refugee violence for the sake of appearing politically correct in a Fox News broadcast. By OLI SMITH PUBLISHED: 00:01, Sun, Feb 19, 2017 | UPDATED: 22:08, Sun, Feb 19, 2017 8K Journalist Ami Horowitz told Fox News people high up in the Swedish government are purposely covering up the prepretrators of rape crimes to protect "vulnerable" migrants.

  • Trump is right: Sweden’s refugee policy has led to problems it never imagined

    The Spectator (UK) ^ | 2/19/17 | Tove Lifvendahl
    (Fraser Nelson writes from Stockholm:) During a rally in Florida yesterday, Donald Trump said that Sweden ‘took in large numbers’ of refugees and is now ‘having problems that they never thought possible’. He is being justifiably criticised and mocked for a bizarre claim that some (presumably refugee-related) event happened “last night” in Sweden. Nothing happened of any note, save for an unusually bad episode of the Melfest song contest. But Sweden has grown used to refugee-related crime stories, from attacks on asylum centres to gang-related killings. I met a journalist in Stockholm a few days ago who told me that such stories...
  • Radioactive Iodine over Europe first measured in Finnmark

    Barents Observer ^ | 2/19/17 | Thomas Nilsen
    A trace of radioactive Iodine-131 of unknown origin was in January detected over large areas in Europe. Since the isotope has a half-life of only eight days, the detection is a proof of a rather recent release. Where the radioactivity is coming from is still a mystery. The air filter station at Svanhovd was the first to measure small amounts of the radioactive Ionide-131 in the second week of January. The station is located a few hundred metres from Norway’s border to Russia’s Kola Peninsula in the north. Soon, the same Iodine-131 isotope was measured in Rovaniemi in Finnish Lapland....

    The embattled leader says Europe has an obligation to take more displaced people from Syria and Iraq.

In a wide-ranging speech at a Munich security conference, the German chief also vowed to work closely with Vladimir Putin's Russia in the fight with ISIS in the Middle East. Mrs Merkel has come under fire for taking in up to one million refugees amid security concerns and a string of migrant sex attacks across Germany. After the Berlin lorry attack at a...

    2016 was the year that the grassroots started the fight-back against the Globalists and Establishment Elite. From the political earthquake of Brexit, to the stunning victory of Donald Trump, the political elites were left shocked, disgusted, and more determined than ever. In their “Groupmind”, these events were not thought possible; it showed that their claws were not so deeply entrenched in the fabric of society and the public psyche. Their war chests are being counted, their forces in the media are being marshaled, and their Generals are looking at the next theaters of operation.

Under the leadership of former ski bum Justin Trudeau, our neighbor to the north seems to be embracing some of the values that have made Europe so inhospitable to its indigenous population. As Barbara Kay has explained both in print and other media, the proposed law by a Muslim MP targeting Islamophobia is simply a pretext to police inconvenient thought which happens to offend the political class.

    There was a time, in the years immediately after 9/11, when I was reasonably (though not entirely) confident that we Americans would be too savvy to let ourselves be led down the primrose path of Islamization. I assumed that the alarming example of Europe – where the destructive nature of Islam's impact was there for all to see – would be effective enough to persuade us to pull up the welcome mat and double-lock the door. What I didn't count on was that so many of our politicians and media would do such a splendid job of covering up the...

    Dragons are very common mythical creatures in almost every part of the world, but no other civilizations paid closer attention to them than East Asia and Western Christendom. While these serpentine creatures are worshiped in Oriental countries, dragons in Christendom are feared to a point of revulsion. In fact, a popular Christian myth that perpetuated the fear of dragons is found in the narratives of the early pre-Catholic era. The 3rd Century AD Roman martyr named St. George was believed to have slain a dragon who feeds on sheep and virgin women during his adventures in Libya. This legend also...

    Everyone in Italy and the rest of Europe will "soon be Muslim" because of our "stupidity", warned Monsignor Carlo Liberati, Archbishop Emeritus of Pompei. Liberati claimed that, thanks to the huge number of Muslim migrants alongside the increasing secularism of native Europeans, Islam will soon become the main religion of Europe. "All of this moral and religious decadence favours Islam", Archbishop Liberati explained. Décadence is also the title of a new book by the French philosopher Michel Onfray, in which he suggests that the Judeo-Christian era may have come to an end. He compares the West and Islam: "We have...

    The more I see of the Donald Trump administration, the more I like its style. Here’s a perfect example – in which Trump’s prospective new Ambassador to the European Union, Ted Malloch, tells it like it is in an interview with Andrew Neil on the BBC’s Daily Politics show. Neil asked Malloch why on earth he’d want to be Ambassador to the EU. AN: I mean you’re clearly not a great fan of Brussels or these bureaucrats like Juncker. TM: Well, I had in a previous year a diplomatic post where I helped to bring down the Soviet Union, so...

    Lisbon (AFP) - French President Francois Hollande on Saturday urged Europe to form a united front and provide a "firm" response to his US counterpart Donald Trump's controversial policies. "When there are statements from the US president about Europe and when he talks about Brexit being a model for other countries, I think we must respond," Hollande told reporters the sidelines of a summit of southern EU nations in Lisbon. He was speaking a day after Trump called Britain's decision to exit the European Union as a "wonderful thing" during a joint news conference in Washington with visiting British Prime...

    California has granted a pro-secession group 180 days to gather enough signatures to get their Calexit initiative on the ballot. From the Hill: The California secretary of stateÂ’s office announced that the group could begin collecting signatures on Thursday.The group needs 585,407 signatures from registered voters over the next 180 days to qualify for the ballot. The mechanism here is not very straightforward. If the Yes California Independence Campaign can gather the needed signatures in time, that would put an initiative on the ballot next year. That initiative, if passed, would change portions of the California constitution and set...

    Drama teacher and actor Mohammad Arvan has started classes for ‘unaccompanied minors’ in which he tells the young migrants how to pick up Swedish women. The Örebro resident says the two hour classes have much improved his students’ flirting techniques and told SVT he plans to run a course to teach Swedish men how they should approach women. “In the beginning they were completely useless at picking up women,” Arvan said of the migrant youths, aged between 15 and 17, who he instructs each week on a Wednesday. “They just went up and asked for their phone number. Which, of...

    Migrants granted leave to remain in Switzerland on the basis that they risk death in their homelands are using welfare money to fund holidays back home, the Basler Zeitung reports. The Swiss newspaper notes that thousands of migrants each year are heading to Eritrea for their holidays each year despite their having supposedly fled the northeast African nation in fear of their lives. Although a large proportion of Eritreans in Switzerland have been refused asylum, authorities are powerless to deport them because their homelands are deemed to be too dangerous by the country’s refugee policy. While there are no direct...
