    European nations that turn away refugees could be forced to pay roughly $300,000 in fines for each individual rejected, European Union officials are expected to announce Wednesday. The plan is part of the European Commission’s plan to overhaul its current asylum rules that neared collapse last year after more than a million refugees and migrants flooded across E.U. borders, the Financial Times reported Tuesday. The reshuffle is aimed at alleviating the strain on frontline nations, including Greece and Italy, that have grappled to absorb the heavy incursion of migrants. Officials who saw the proposal in advance said the fine would...

    GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump's emphasis that the guiding principle for foreign policy under his administration will be "America first" has made some of our European allies nervous. Germany's foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier characterized Trump's stance as "arrogant and selfish. To put America first is offensive to my ears. He is denying our equality and our right to participate in determining what America must do to protect all of our mutual interests. If this kind of self-centered viewpoint had prevailed in an earlier era my country and perhaps all of western Europe would today be run by fascists or communists."...

    Temperature and sea level aren't the only things expected to rise as a result of climate change. As heat becomes more extreme in some parts of the world, scientists expect a significant rise in the number of climate refugees. Climate scientists expect the coming decades to feature a mass exodus of millions from the Middle East and North Africa as extreme temperatures become more common. "In future, the climate in large parts of the Middle East and North Africa could change in such a manner that the very existence of its inhabitants is in jeopardy," Jos Lelieveld, director of the...

    Delegates from Germany's anti-immigration party Alternative for Germany (AfD) on Sunday backed an election manifesto that says Islam is not compatible with the country's constitution and calls for a ban on minarets and the burqa. The AfD, set up just three years ago, has been buoyed by Europe's migrant crisis, which saw the arrival of more than one million, mostly Muslim, migrants in Germany last year. The party has no lawmakers in the federal parliament in Berlin but has members in half of Germany's 16 regional state assemblies. Opinion polls give AfD support of up to 14 percent, presenting a...

    The generosity of Danes opening their borders to immigrants from Muslim countries has been repaid by an astounding surge in crimes committed by these foreigners. Though these foreigners make up only 8% of the country's population they account for over 75% of the crimes committed and over 80% of those drawing unemployment benefits from the government. Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, who has frequently offered up Denmark as an exemplar of the kind of social policies we ought to adopt in the United States, professed himself "not the least bit disturbed by these results.

Jeb Bush responded, “Seriously?” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan addressed the nation to condemn it. Even Ted Cruz wouldn’t support it. But there’s one massive group of people that overwhelmingly backs Trump’s proposal for a temporary ban on Muslim immigration: Republican primary voters.

    SALZBURG, Austria - On a crisp morning last October, 198 migrants arrived on the Greek island of Leros, all of them seemingly desperate people seeking sanctuary in Europe. But hiding among them were four men with a very different agenda. The four were posing as war-weary Syrians - all carrying doctored passports with false identities. And they were on a deadly mission for the Islamic State. Two of the four would masquerade as migrants all the way to Paris. There, at 9:20 p.m. on Nov. 13, they would detonate suicide vests...............

    A flood of Muslim refugees from Syria, an average of 358 per week to be exact, is expected to arrive in the United States between now and the end of the fiscal year on Sept. 30. The Obama administration has decided to implement a "surge" in Syrian refugees, fast-tracking the arrival of those fleeing civil war in that country to make good on its commitment of bringing 10,000 by the end of fiscal 2016. . . . To fulfill its promise, the administration has now decided to expedite the process, cutting the screening period from 18-24 months down to three...

    The physical damage was easy to see. The attackers' bombs shattered an airport terminal and a subway station. But when one of the European Union's top leaders expressed his sympathies to the men, women and children hurt and killed in Brussels on Tuesday morning, he hinted that the three attackers purportedly acting on behalf of the extremist group Islamic State had caused even greater damage. "These attacks have hit Brussels today, Paris yesterday," said European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. "But it is Europe as a whole that has been targeted." When the European Union was created in 1993, one of...

    Obama’s Legacy – The Threat of More Terrorism Here Free Fire | March 8, 2016 | Counterintelligence, Counterterrorism, Defense Budget & Programs, Understanding the Shariah Threat Doctrine The President’s Homeland Security Advisor says international terrorist groups are “planning for sophisticated and coordinated terror attacks” in this country. In fact, Lisa Monaco warned that the threats are becoming ‘broader, more diffuse, and less predicable than at any time” since the 9/11 attacks. Call it Obama’s legacy. Unfortunately, as former clandestine CIA officer Clare Lopez and I point out in a new book, See No Sharia, our first lines of defense against...

    Somali 'refugee' influx continues unabated Obama sending 700 per month to U.S. cities despite admitted 'terror-recruitment problem' The Islamic State’s Cyber Army used an online cellphone app to post a “kill list” of names, addresses, phone numbers and other personal information on 36 police officers in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota. The FBI said this week it is investigating the case but analysts say it’s obvious why ISIS chose to target the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. The area is home to America’s largest Somali refugee community and has been a hotbed of Islamic terrorist recruitment dating back to at least...

    Perhaps it’s not a body blow to ISIS itself, but the capture of Salah Abdeslam might do a great deal of damage to its operations in Europe. One question from his capture certainly remains unanswered at the moment — why was the mastermind of the Paris attacks still in Europe at all? And why did he stick around Molenbeek, which Belgian and other Western counterterrorism operatives kept under scrutiny? Salah Abdeslam, the top suspect in last year’s deadly Paris attacks, was discharged Saturday from a Brussels hospital along with a suspected accomplice and will now face official questioning and a...

    Paul Weston’s speech, unfortunately, has been removed from Youtube. However, watching this question and answer session-while you still can-will be an illuminating experience, rest assured. The lecture he had originally planned to deliver was quashed, naturally, by brutal, anti-Western thugs who happen to make their habitation in Canada. Illustrating, once again, the obstacles we face in spreading the truth about the greatest threat to Western civilization in the contemporary era.
  • The "Einzelfall Map" or Isolated incident Map of Migrant Criminality 2016

    #Einzelfall means an isolated incident or a "one off" this is the term German Politicians have been using to describe the criminal behavior of the migrants/refugees. A map showcasing criminality by immigrants in 2016 was originally created using public statistics and news reports from 13 out of the 16 German Bundesländer, it has since been expanded with reports from Austria,Switzerland and adjacent countries. Three German States do not report crimes with any mention of ethnic background, however some news reports have contained ethnicity. I became aware of the map through twitter...https://twitter.com/XYEinzelfall The categories being reported are: sexual assault, attempted rape,...
  • Strong gains for Germany’s anti-immigration party

    Over the weekend there were elections in three German states. And a new anti-immigration party, called the AfD, did incredibly well, especially for a party that didn’t exist just a few years ago. The AfD is led by Franke Petry. She’s young, attractive and entrepreneurial, with a PhD in chemistry. Strangely enough, Angela Merkel also has a degree in chemistry. But that’s where their similarities end. Merkel is 61; she’s a career politician, having spent 25 years at it. But the biggest difference isn’t just that Petry is a generation younger. It’s this: Petry has four kids; Merkel has none....

    "The AfD is a party that is not bringing together society and not offering the appropriate solutions for the problems, but it is stirring up prejudice and polarizing.”That’s from Angela Merkel who spoke last Saturday to Bild am Sonntag about the threat she believes the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany party poses to the country.Apparently, voters weren’t listening.In what amounts to a sweeping indictment of the Iron Chancellor’s open-door refugee policies, Merkel’s conservatives lost in two of the three state elections on Sunday with AfD scoring significant wins at the ballot box.“With three states in play on Sunday, support for Merkel’s...

    As a direct result of Europe's refugee crisis, new and very unpleasant social fractures have started to emerge. One particularly troubling issue is the extent to which officials have tended to “blame the victim" in the ever more frequent sex attacks resulting from Europe's refugee surge, something we first touched upon earlier this week. For instance, Cologne mayor Henriette Reker drew sharp criticism for suggesting that it was German womens' duty to prevent assaults by keeping would-be assailants “at arm’s length.” Then there was the now infamous case of the 17-year-old Danish girl who faced a fine from police...

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservative CDU party was humiliated in key regional elections on Sunday as voters delivered their verdict at the ballot box about her open-door refugee policies. Exit poll results in three out of 16 German states foretell a wipeout in next year's general election as the hard-right capitalized on public disquiet and altered the political landscape forever. Baden-Wuerttemberg - solidly middle class and home to blue chip companies like Porsche and Daimler - was won by the Green Party after Merkel's CDU lost nearly 11 percent support since the last vote there in 2011.
