  • Why women will march en masse in Copenhagen after Trump inauguration

    Donald Trump’s inauguration as the 45th president of the United States on Friday should be the biggest show in town; but according to a recent report, it’s likely to be dwarfed in size by the Women’s March on Washington the following day. A DC council member told the local NBC affiliate that the city has issued around three times as many tour bus permits for the march than it has for the Inauguration Day events themselves. […] Not only is Copenhagen no exception, the so-called ‘sister march’ here may draw one of the largest crowds outside of the United States....

    Berlin (dpa) – German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday fired back at US president-elect Donald Trump's denunciation of her liberal stance on refugees and his dismissal of the NATO military alliance as "obsolete." "I think we Europeans hold our destiny in our own hands," she said. "We know what his position is," Merkel said in response to Trump slamming her refugee policy as a "catastrophic mistake." "My position is also known," she added. In an interview with Germany's Bild and the Times of London, Trump also threatened to impose a hefty tax on German carmakers for selling vehicles in the...

    European Union nations bracing for the looming Donald Trump presidency showed defiance Monday in the face of the president-elect's stinging comments on everything from NATO and German cars to the crumbling of the EU itself. German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said the U.S. president-elect's view that NATO was obsolete and his criticism that European allied members aren't paying their fair share had "caused astonishment." Trump also said Britain's decision to leave the 28-nation European Union would "end up being a great thing," and he predicted that other countries would also leave. At a meeting of EU ministers, French Foreign Minister...
  • European leaders shocked as Trump slams NATO and E.U., raising fears of transatlantic split

    BRUSSELS — European leaders said Monday that they may have to stand alone without the United States once Donald Trump enters office, raising the prospect of an unprecedented breach in transatlantic relations after Trump’s comments that the European Union is bound for a breakup and that NATO is obsolete. Trump said in a weekend interview with the Times of London and Germany’s Bild newspaper that the 28-nation European Union was a vehicle for German interests and said that he was indifferent to the bloc’s fate. He also said he was committed to European defense even as he expressed skepticism about...
  • Could Western Civilization Be Saved If Most Europeans Converted to Judaism?

    01/16/2017 6:57:13 AM PST · by pinochet · 80 replies
    Israel is the only country in the Western world, where birth rates are above the replacement level of 2 children per woman. Of all Western nations, Israel shows the greatest resistance to cultural suicide. If Europeans do not increase their birth rates, the future of Europe will be Muslim. Judaism is one of the founding cultures of Western civilization, alongside the Ancient Greek and the Ancient Roman cultures. Jews have lived in Europe since 300 BC. The Ancient Greek and Roman cultures died out, but Judaism still survives. Judaism is the longest-lasting culture of Western civilization, having been around for...

    Monsignor Carlo Liberati, Archbishop Emeritus of Pompeii, said that Islam will soon become Europe’s main religion thanks to the huge number of Muslim migrants alongside the increasing secularism of native Europeans.Speaking to Italian Catholic journal La Fede Quotidiana, the archbishop said: “In 10 years we will all be Muslims because of our stupidity. Italy and Europe live in a pagan and atheist way, they make laws that go against God and they have traditions that are proper of paganism.“All of this moral and religious decadence favours Islam.” “We have a weak Christian faith,” he added. “The Church nowadays does not...

    Europe has assumed the posture of the Good Samaritan as a response to the tsunami of refugees and migrants flooding the continent. Politicians and public authorities are in the grip of emotional do-good-ing. Critical voices and questions are attacked with a barrage of accusations of inhumanity, lack of compassion or outright racism. Any intelligent political debate on immigration has therefore been silenced and replaced by a grandiose show of emotion. Danish police gave up registering refugees and migrants entering at the border because the migrants refused to comply with regulations in order to push on to go to Sweden. This...

    Germany’s domestic security chief warned on Sunday that the country’s radical Islamist scene is not only growing, but becoming more decentralized, posing greater challenges to surveillance operations. In an interview with national news agency DPA, Hans-Georg Maaßen also defended security officials under fire after it emerged that Berlin truck attack suspect Anis Amri had slipped through their net, saying they had done everything they could. Overall, the number of Salafists — or fundamentalist Sunni Muslims — in Germany has risen to more than 9,700, sharply up from 3,800 people in 2011, said Maaßen. “It’s of great concern to us that...

    The push to reclaim Mosul and Raqqa is just like a successful radiation treatment, it is shrinking the Islamic State’s caliphate that was once advancing unabated across Iraq and Syria. Even though their land mass and fighters are dwindling, their sympathizers and their fundamentalist ideology has spread across the world like a cancer. Islamic extremists in Europe, for instance, have plans to conquer the continent with fundamental Islam to join a future caliphate. They will not, however, wield the sword; pillaging, raping and killing infidels everywhere they go, planting their black flags on every hilltop. Mind you, this is the militant...

In Serbia, aid workers scrambled to help hundreds of migrants sleeping rough in parks and makeshift shelters. The extreme winter weather that has gripped Europe in the past days has caused more than a dozen deaths, left villages cut off, caused power and water outages, frozen rivers and lakes, grounded flights and led to road accidents. Serbia’s authorities on Sunday banned river traffic on its stretch of the Danube — one of Europe’s main rivers...

    There is a disturbing and growing trend in Italy and Europe. For the first time in more than 700 years, Islamic songs resonated in Florence's Cathedral, the Church Santa Maria del Fiore. Under the famous Dome of Brunelleschi, Islamic melodies accompanied Christian ones. The "interfaith initiative" was promoted a week after the barbaric massacre by Islamist terrorists in Paris at the magazine Charlie Hebdo, and included "Koran is Justice" and other such "hymns". A priest in the south of Italy then enraged parishioners by dressing the Virgin Mary in a Muslim burqa for his church's Christmas nativity scene. The pastor...

Muslim migrants are flooding in from hostile countries by the millions, and many people here do not even know about it. The MSM blackout on the issue is the main reason. Merkel and the rest of the socialists over there are allowing, and encouraging an invasion of their countries by military-age Muslim males. Brilliant. Where are all the women and children refugees??

This explains the seemingly pitiful willingness of the Europeans to silently watch their countries fill with muslim refugee-settlers. They are now prosecuted for free speech.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel's celebrated open-door policy encouraged the migration of more than 1 million refugees in 2015, and hundreds of thousands more in 2016. It was lauded as a courageous triumph of humanitarianism. Even in 2016's year-end accolades, Merkel has been given hosannas for "keeping the doors ajar." But after last week's Berlin attack, in which a man — suspected to be a Tunisian migrant — intentionally plowed an 18-wheeler into a crowded Christmas market, killing 12 and injuring dozens more, it's fair to say that Merkel's celebrated policy has actually been a disaster. After all, "keeping the doors...

In Germany, the Merkel regime is desperately denying that the country's open-borders policy toward Islamic immigration, including a conscious policy of converting many refugees into truck drivers by easing licensing requirements, might be an enabling factor in the spate of social outrages, rising crime rate, and now mass murder by lone wolf jihadi Anus Amri at the Berlin market.

    The nature of the societies that filled the chasm left by the demise of the Roman Empire in the 5th century AD remains one of the relative unknowns of history. While there has been focus on the ways in which famous kingdoms such as those of Anglo-Saxon England or Frankia emerged, there has been little study of how the societies that lived beyond the limits of the Roman world were similarly transformed in this period.

    EYGELSHOVEN, Netherlands — The U.S. and its NATO allies are taking no chances amid a build-up of military force on Europe's eastern frontier with Russia. Three years after the last American tank left Europe, they are being brought back "as part of our commitment to deterrence," Gen. Frederick "Ben" Hodges told NBC News. Hodges, who is commander of the U.S. Army in Europe, welcomed a batch of tracked and wheeled support vehicles to a depot in the Netherlands on Thursday.

    While Geert Wilders was being prosecuted in the Netherlands for talking about "fewer Moroccans" during an election campaign, a state-funded watchdog group says that threatening homosexuals with burning, decapitation and slaughter is just fine, so long as it is Muslims who are making those threats, as the Quran tells them that such behavior is mandated. "I am still of the view that declaring statistical facts or even sharing an opinion is not a crime if someone doesn't like it." - Finns Party politician, Terhi Kiemunki, fined 450 euros for writing of a "culture and law based on a violent, intolerant...

    This is one of the reasons why Geert Wilders will, I believe, win the elections for parliament in the Netherlands that will take place in March 2017. Of all Dutch inmates in 2015, 39 percent had a native Dutch background, while 62 percent had a migration background. That's clear from the official statistics from the government's Central Bureau for Statistics (CBS). According to the CBS, these numbers haven't changed in any significant manner in the last few years. With a share of 11 percent, inmates with a Moroccan background form the largest share of all of the inmates with a...

    Throughout 2016, the Danish Immigration Service (Udlćndingestyrelsen, DIS) has questioned the age of hundreds of asylum seekers who say they are younger than 18. According to a report in Jyllands-Posten, DIS suspected that roughly 800 asylum seekers were lying about their age and thus asked the University of Copenhagen’s Department of Forensic Medicine (Retsmedicinsk Institut) to run tests to verify just how old the asylum seekers really are. Using X-rays of their teeth and finger bones, the institute concluded that 74 percent of those tested — or around 600 individuals — are actually adults. …

These men, who will inform Trump on security matters foreign and domestic, have proven backgrounds of courage, valor, and discipline. Our disgusting mainstream media has a new phrase that they...
