  • A New Wave of Popular Fury Could Hit Europe in 2017

    PARIS — For Europe, 2016 has brought a series of political shocks: near-record numbers of immigrants arriving from the Middle East and Africa; a vote by Britain to leave the European Union and renewed threats by Russia to meddle on the continent. But 2017 could be even bumpier. There will be at least three elections in Europe next year: in Germany, France and the Netherlands for sure, and now perhaps in Italy, too. Just about everywhere, political establishments are being blamed for tepid growth, for too few jobs and for favoring global financial markets over the common citizen. The latest...
  • Populist Wave Makes Merkel Go All-Out Conservative: Calls for Burqa Ban in Germany

    Angela Merkel is suddenly becoming more hawkish than Geert Wilders and Marine Le Pen. To everyone's surprise, the German chancellor is suddenly speaking out against the burqa. Not only does she think it's "unGerman" to wear one, but she even believes the burqa should be banned completely. That's rather surprising coming from a politician who has never hidden her support for the Grand Multicultural Idea. Angela Merkel has called for a burqa ban wherever “legally possible” and says the full Islamic veil is “not appropriate” in Germany. The German chancellor made the comments at a Christian Democratic Union (CDU) conference...

    Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi has suffered a heavy defeat in a referendum over his plan to reform the constitution, exit polls suggest. An exit poll on state broadcaster RAI suggests 42-46% voted to back reform, compared with 54-58% voting No. Two other polls gave the No vote a similar lead of at least 10 points. Mr Renzi, who has said he would resign if he lost the vote, is due to make a statement at midnight (23:00 GMT) from his official residence in Rome. The referendum was regarded as a barometer of anti-establishment sentiment in Europe. The vote asked...

    THE EUROPEAN UNION looks set to be shattered by a potential influx of Eurosceptic country leaders who refuse to toe the line of the Brussels elite This weekend Austria could be set to elect its first far-right leader while Italy could simultaneously lose its Europhile Prime Minister. Both outcomes would be a massive blow to the Union as fear begins to spread around the the corridors of Brussels - both nations have put a vote to the people and could start the process of engineering themselves out of the EU.

    Rome (AFP) - Media silence was imposed across Italy Saturday on the eve of a constitutional referendum crucial for Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, who has staked his future on the government reforms. In the frantic final round of campaigning which ended on Friday, Renzi's rivals vowed to defeat referendum proposals to streamline parliament and force the centre-left leader out of office. The 41-year-old premier is hoping for a last-minute turnaround in voter sentiment, having pledged to quit in the event of a "No". While all media comment on the referendum is now banned until polling ends at 11:00 pm (2200...

    A call earlier this week between President-elect Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May — in which they agreed on the need for more NATO member states to commit two percent of their GDP on defense spending — brought European security debate back into the limelight. Although Trump gained notoriety in Europe for his skepticism of America’s alliances, there has been a surge of high-ranking politicians and government officials on both sides of the Atlantic saying that Europe is not doing enough for its defense. Earlier British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said that Europe should “step up to the...

    Italy’s prime minister, Matteo Renzi, only 41, once seemed to have solved the riddle of how to survive Europe’s populist, anti-establishment tempest. But with a critical national referendum on Sunday, the populist wave is now threatening to crush him and plunge Italy into a political crisis when the European Union is already reeling. From Washington to Brussels to Berlin, fears are rising that Italy may be stumbling into its own “Brexit” moment. What should be an inward-looking referendum on whether to overhaul Italy’s ossified political and electoral system has taken on much broader import. Financial analysts warn of a potential...

    Daily Star ^ | Published 30th November 2016 | By Henry Holloway
    RUSSIA has massed 55,000 troops along their eastern border as they prepare to unleash a "frightening war" upon Europe. -------- Military bosses claim Vladimir Putin has sent his mighty army to disputed frontiers along Eastern Europe. Putin’s mass military deployment comes as Russian lawmakers threatened a looming “frightening war” unless their enemies back down over the annexation of Crimea. Russia has been at loggerheads with NATO ever since it seized the peninsula on the Black Sea in 2014. Shockingly earlier this year Russia withdrew from the International Criminal Court after the organisation branded its occupation illegal and said it was...

    The one and only state of the Jewish people, back in their historical homeland, is a beacon of democracy in the Muslim-Arab sphere devoid of human rights, left behind by social and economic progress and subject to frequent bouts of bloody unrest. Yet Israel is singled out, again and again, for condemnation. The European Union, self-appointed human rights watchdog, is at the forefront of the attacks. This is a puzzling phenomenon. Why is Europe turning a blind eye to the deadly legacy of violence, chaos and backwardness left by the Islamic occupation of the Middle East and North Africa? Why,...

    The incoming Secretary-General of the United Nations (UN) told a room of policymakers in Europe on Wednesday that “migration is not the problem but the solution”, and said politicians should ignore voters. Speaking in Lisbon at the Vision Europe Summit, António Guterres said European nations have no right to control their borders and that they must instead take in floods of the world’s poorest people. “The idea that management of migration is a matter of national sovereignty is extremely limited. The truth is that in the meantime, the real controllers of international mobility are the smugglers and criminal organisations. It...

    ISTANBUL - Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned the European Union that if it continues threatening his country he will open the border gates and allow hundreds of thousands of migrants to flood into EU countries. Erdogan, in a speech Friday, reacted furiously to a non-binding resolution approved the previous day by the European Parliament demanding that the bloc freeze membership negotiations with Turkey over the government's heavy-handed crackdown following a failed coup in July. "We are the ones who feed 3-3.5 million refugees in this country. You have betrayed your promises," Erdogan told the EU. "If you go...

"We are one of the factors protecting Europe. If refugees go through, they will flood into Europe and take it over, and Turkey prevents this," Yildirim said in comments broadcast live on television. "I accept that cutting off ties with Europe would harm Turkey, but it would damage Europe 5-to-6 times more."

    Chancellor Angela Merkel defended democratic values and multilateral cooperation on Wednesday, but insisted Germany "can't solve all problems" in the world. Merkel evoked the experience of Germany's post-war division to stress that democracy and freedom cannot be taken for granted, saying Europe should work with the United States and other allies to defend those values. With the imminent departure of U.S. President Barack Obama, Merkel, 62 years old and already in power for 11 years, is left as the senior leader anchoring a Western alliance shaken by Donald Trump's U.S. election victory. "I am deeply convinced that openness will bring...

    PARIS (AP) — French conservatives are voting in a nationwide primary to choose their nominee for next year’s presidential election, after a campaign marked by concerns about immigration and Islamic extremism. Seven candidates are competing Sunday in the first round of the primary. A runoff will be held between the top two vote-getters a week later. The three leading candidates are former president Nicolas Sarkozy and former prime ministers Francois Fillon and Alain Juppe. The candidates have been keeping a close eye on far-right candidate Marine Le Pen, whose criticism of immigration and Muslim practices resonates with many voters.

Obama's divisive comments acknowledging but then dismissing Americans' rejection of the globalist assault on self-government and nationhood were made in Athens, Greece, during his final official trip abroad. The misleading remarks confirm that, despite escalating public fury worldwide as expressed in Brexit and Trump's election, the globalist establishment is not ready to surrender its radical internationalist agenda without a...

    According the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) — part of the Council of Europe — the British press is to blame for increasing hate speech and racist violence. On October 4, 2016, the ECRI released a report dedicated only to Britain. The report said: some traditional media, particularly tabloids… are responsible for most of the offensive, discriminatory and provocative terminology. The Sun, for instance, published an article in April 2015 entitled “Rescue boats? I’d use gunships to stop migrants”, in which the columnist likened migrants to “cockroaches”… The Sun newspaper has also published inflammatory anti-Muslim headlines, such...

    It should not be controversial to observe that the EU is in a bit of a mess. It has been one slow-motion disaster ever since the 2008 financial crisis. That was initially because one of the pillars of European unity is the Euro currency, yet the European Union does not have the effective political integration to make a currency union work. Though Europe’s economies, for example, are more similar between themselves than the richest and the poorest states of the US, the United States has an adequate level of political and financial integration to make their monetary union work.

The rampage left 130 people dead, 85 of them in Bataclan, where the band, the Eagles of Death Metal, was playing. Meanwhile, investigations have revealed that all nine men involved in the attacks...

And the fastest way to get them is to bring them here from poor nations when they're young, when they're uneducated and unskilled and can't work and thus they arrive totally dependent.

Complaints initially came from parents in Bradford, north England, but it became clear this was not an isolated case, and that several school districts in England and Wales differentiated between northern and southern Italians.

    Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s far-right National Front Party, vowed that if she is elected the country’s president she would ban all public displays of religious symbols and clothing, including kippot. Le Pen made the statement during an interview on Sunday with France’s BFM-TV. She is expected to seek the country’s presidency in 2017. She heads the third-largest party in France. Le Pen is seeking to broaden an existing law, called the headscarf ban, that does not allow conspicuous displays of religious symbols in public schools to include all public areas. She called the ban a struggle against...

    Hillary Clinton claims to be a champion for women, but in reality, she’s a faux feminist who doesn’t support women at all. Over the years, Hillary has maligned women who were allegedly raped or sexually assaulted by her husband Bill Clinton. Hillary and the Clinton Foundation have also accepted tens of millions of dollars from anti-women regimes like Saudi Arabia. While slamming Donald Trump as a sexual predator, Hillary refuses to condemn, or even acknowledge, the Muslim rape epidemic roiling Europe. The disproportionate mainstream media fury over Trump’s words versus the Clintons’ actions spotlights the media bias that exists today....

    Europe has one of the highest rates of prisoner suicides compared to other regions, according to the WHO. Prison reform advocates have called for alternative solutions for tackling the harrowing phenomenon. While questions over security and personal well-being have emerged in the wake of the Chemnitz explosives suspect Jafer Albakr’s death, figures show that prisoner suicides happen far too often. […] The UN Office for Drugs and Crime (UNODC) suggested in 2014 that suicide among prisoners appeared more frequently in Europe than other geographical regions, averaging 62 suicides per 100,000. …

    It is difficult to say who will be elected by American people, but the world (except for sterile Western Europe) has made its choice. And this choice, in spite of formal logic, is the "racist," "sexist," "imperialist," "Islamophobe" Donald Trump. In New York, the President of Egypt, el-Sisi, has met with Trump and characterized him as a "strong leader." The presidents of the Czech Republic and Hungary, Milos Zeman and Viktor Orban, urged Americans to elect Trump. According to Orban, Trump would be a better leader than Obama, and Zeman compared him with Reagan. Russia, Israel and the Arab monarchies...

    There are few things more precious to Swedes than their traditional drinking habits, and a new EU-wide rule change affecting one of their favorite Christmas drinks has some of the normally tranquil Scandinavians up in arms. A yuletide tradition in Sweden since the 1800s, glögg (a variation of mulled wine) is consumed at parties and gatherings throughout the Christmas period, and is often strengthened with additional spirits to give it an extra kick. But now, some drinks previously labeled as glögg will no longer be allowed to carry that name, with revised EU legislation on the labeling of aromatized wine...

    When the massive influx of Muslims occurred earlier this year, I couldn’t understand why? How could so many people just up and leave their home countries to walk to Europe? How could so many people get the word and decide at the exact same time to get up and go? It didn’t make sense but it happened. This article below explains it all. Remember, I am an Islamaphobe and am not to be trusted when it comes to bashing Muslims. What is Hijrah? We understand far too little about Muslims leaving their homes. What is Hijrah? Obama is well educated...

    Speaking at the annual Association of the US Army conference, the commander of the US Army Europe Ben Hodges revealed some of his concerns regarding the current state of NATO armies. Amid growing escalation of the US-Russia tensions over Syria, cyberattacks and whatnot, fears of all-out war can be heard more and more often. In this light, some of the issues Ben Hodges pointed out sound anecdotal. For example, one of the minor, but nevertheless troubling issues are… refueling nozzles. Who could have thought that armies of the US and Germany use incompatible refueling systems? Thus, if some German brigade...

    The EU launched its beefed-up border force Thursday in a rare show of unity by the squabbling bloc as it seeks to tackle its worst migration crisis since World War II. European Union officials inaugurated the new task force at the Kapitan Andreevo checkpoint on the Bulgarian-Turkish border, the main land frontier for migrants seeking to enter the bloc and avoid the dangerous Mediterranean sea crossing. The European Border and Coast Guard Agency (EBCG) will have at its disposal some 1,500 officers from 19 member states who can be swiftly mobilised in case of an emergency, like a sudden surge...
