Gates of Vienna News Feed 9/7/2015

As might be expected, the news tonight is dominated by the European “migration crisis”. Greek authorities say that at least 10,000 refugees will be ferried from the island of Lesbos to the mainland over the next five days. However, 5,000-8,000 more will still remain on the island.

Meanwhile, hundreds of newly-arrived migrants in Denmark have decided to walk to Sweden, which they find preferable as a destination. Their trek, accompanied by police, blocked a major highway.

In other news, Qatar has sent 1,000 ground troops to help the Saudis fight the Houthi Shia rebels in Yemen.

Italy: Right Not to Pay Taxes on Primary Residence — Renzi

Someone with mortgage ‘shdn’t have to pay anything’

(ANSA) — Rome, September 7 — Premier Matteo Renzi said Monday that “December 16 will be the last time taxes will be paid on primary residences. The primary residence will once again be exempt from taxes, someone who has worked 30 years and has a mortgage, it’s only fair he shouldn’t have to pay anything”. As for the shortfall in funds that will be produced for local authorities, Renzi said “we will give a corresponding cheque to the mayors”.

10 Shocking Facts You Never Knew About Wikipedia and Jimmy Wales

(NaturalNews) Now that the truth about Wikipedia being a blackmail extortion racket has emerged, people are starting to connect the dots on the criminality and corruption that dominates the discredited disinfo site.

Not only was Wikipedia’s founder Jimmy Wales a “porn king” who sold online pornography before launching Wikipedia, we also know that wikipedia deliberately censors large categories of truthful information on natural healing, the dangers of vaccines, the crimes of Hillary Clinton, the corruption and criminality of the biotech industry and much more.

Here are the top 10 shocking facts you probably never knew about Wikipedia and Jimmy Wales.

1) Wikipedia claims to be run by “volunteers” but is actually edited by corporate-paid trolls on many topics such as GMOs, vaccines, chemotherapy and pharmaceuticals.

2016 GOP Contenders: Carly Fiorina

Several of my friends have opined that Carly Fiorina would make a great VP to Donald Trump. She sounds so good, and she makes some valid points, but actions speak louder than words, as we all well know. In my book, Carly Fiorina is just another Trotskyite, and if you won’t go that far, she clearly uses Marxist techniques. Read on, and I’ll explain…

In 2002, Carly was America’s leading CEO for firing workers. As CEO of HP, she fired 33,000 workers according to the San Jose Mercury. She shipped American jobs to both India and China according to the Center for Industrial Competitiveness. Fiorina cut workers salaries by $130 million while collecting $90 million for herself according to the book, “Greed and Good.” While other CEO’s during the crisis took pay cuts, Carly Fiorina took a 231% raise according to Executive Excess of 2003.

Loyalty was not among her high priorities according to the book, “Backfire.” While at HP, she traded with Iran in violation of U.S. trade sanctions by using a foreign entity. She has even praised and worked with, Jew hater — “Hymietown” — Jesse Jackson.

Fiorina said to Congress in 2004: “There is no job that is America’s God-given right anymore. We have to compete for jobs as a nation.” While she argued that the only way to “protect U.S. high-tech jobs over the long haul was to become more competitive [in the United States],” her comments prompted “strong reactions” from some technology workers who argued that lower wages outside the United States encouraged the off shoring of American jobs. Because of changes to HP’s culture, and requests for voluntary pay cuts to prevent layoffs (subsequently followed by the largest layoffs in HP’s history), employee satisfaction surveys at HP—previously among the highest in America—revealed “widespread unhappiness” and distrust. [Link]

During Fiorina’s time as CEO, HP’s revenue doubled due to mergers with Compaq and other companies, and the rate of patent filings increased. However, the company reportedly underperformed in several areas: there were no gains in HP’s net income despite a 70% gain in net income of the S&P 500 over this period; [Link] the company’s debt rose from ~4.25 billion USD to ~6.75 billion USD; and stock price fell by 50%, exceeding declines in the S&P 500 Information Technology Sector index and the NASDAQ.

A Brief Consideration of Romans 13:1-5

How many times have you heard a Christian say, “God put the President in office so it is our duty to obey him”? I hear that a lot but is it really true? The only passage in the NT that someone who holds this view can point to is Romans 13 but it is my opinion that this passage says nothing of the sort concerning who gets elected to what office. Romans 13 is not concerned about that in the least.

Please take the time to read Romans 13:1-5 now before you continue reading…

When we make God-dishonoring decisions we end up with God-dishonoring leaders and laws. We can’t say “well God put the nine Supreme Court justices in place who forced sodomite marriage upon America so we’ll just have to live with it.” God didn’t do that. We the people did that through the Presidents we elected to that office.

Now how does all this relate to Romans 13? Note verse 1 — God establishes order in His creation by establishing government. Government is nothing more than the framework by which people govern themselves. It is a mutually agreed upon pact between people of a nation who establish their relationship to one another through what they will and will not allow.

Military Selects Rarely Used Charge for Bergdahl Case

Military prosecutors have reached into a section of military law seldom used since World War II in the politically fraught case against Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the soldier held prisoner for years by the Taliban after leaving his post in Afghanistan.

Observers wondered for months if Bergdahl would be charged with desertion after the deal brokered by the U.S. to bring him home. He was — but he was also charged with misbehavior before the enemy, a much rarer offense that carries a stiffer potential penalty in this case.

“I’ve never seen it charged,” Walter Huffman, a retired major general who served as the Army’s top lawyer, said of the misbehavior charge. “It’s not something you find in common everyday practice in the military.”

Obama Orders Companies to Pay Sick Leave

Executive action pertains to federal contractors

President Obama, with Labor Day as a backdrop, breathed life into a new executive order that mandates all companies doing business with the federal government provide seven days of paid sick leave per employee per year.

Obama planned to make the deal officials in a Monday meeting with labor leaders in Boston.

Republican critics called the move an overreach of executive authority, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The Battle for Hoehns Road: Property Rights Versus Muslim Supremacy

The moral of this sorry is never sell land to Muslims building mosques in America. A battle is going on in exurban Henrico County in central Virginia between legacy property rights of a private road and expansion of the Islamic Center of Richmond (ICR). The ICR website estimates there are 1,500 Muslim residents in the West End of Richmond. The battle is not about freedom to worship protected under the First Amendment and federal laws granting exemption waivers from local land zoning laws. Instead it is about the abuse of the courts through lawfare to create a Muslim preserve in Central Virginia through force majeure, harassment and intimidation. The actors in the dispute are Sylvia Hoehns-Wright, an expert horticulturalist and author versus the land agent for the ICR, Yunus Vohra, a commercial property developer embroiled in bankruptcy proceedings and litigation. Vohra contended at an August 2014 County Planning hearing that the delay in rezoning applications by the ICR reflected anti-Muslim bias…

Where to Bury Your Depression When Pope Francis is in America

Some find the man-made pomp and ceremony in preparation for the pontiff’s first trip to America as disturbing as it is depressing.

They are those who know down at heart that Pope Francis is coming to America to pay proud public allegiance to abortion-supporting President Barack Obama and to the frauds hiding under diplomacy at the world’s biggest bureaucracy known as the United Nations.

That the president of the United States and the leader of the Catholic Church on earth would come together to shill global warming/climate change as humanity’s biggest scourge is nothing less than an outrage of surrealistic dimensions.

Germany: #FreeDolphinFromHamas Rally a Spectacular Success in Berlin

[See link for photos]

I mentioned that a rally was planned for last Friday in Alexanderplatz, Berlin, in order to call attention to the plight of the Mossad dolphin captured by Hamas.

The photos of the rally are great.

“Antidolphinism is not OK”

“Dolphin are people too!”

“Freedom for our comrades-in-fins” (h/t Jerry)

This seems to have gotten far more people to march than any BDS rally I’ve ever seen. And they had police protection too — which is funny but also very sad.

Italian Farmers Decry Imports of Polish ‘Mozzarella, ‘ Dutch Salad

Bolzano firm shipped mozzarella from Poland to Salerno

(ANSA) — Salerno, September 7 — Italy’s farmers’ union called Monday for more protection for quintessentially Italian foodstuffs, citing the examples of mozzarella being imported to Italy from Poland and Dutch salad going on sale in the lettuce-growing capital of Salerno province.

The mozzarella was made in a Polish firm for a company in the German-speaking region of Bolzano and was due to be sent to Florence for marketing as “fresh mozzarella,” said Vittorio Sangiorgio, president of the Coldiretti farmers’ union in Salerno province, who led a delegation of Salerno farmers protesting at the Brenner frontier with Germany.

An entire lorryload of Dutch salad was due to cross the Brenner frontier destined for Piana del Sele as succulent produce of Salerno, he said.

“This is a paradoxical situation,” he said, “salad produced abroad arrives to be sold as from Salerno in the area of Europe with the biggest salad production”.

“After wine, extra virgin oil and San Marzano tomatos we add another product to the basket of our excellent specialities under siege by illegal trafficking”.

“We are at the Brenner to reaffirm the necessity of defending the sector from false Made in Italy products until we obtain the indicatin of the origin of all food products, which often come into Italy already branded as Made in Italy”.

Italy’s Top Court Says it Threw Out Knox Conviction Because No Proof She Was at Murder Scene

ROME — Italy’s top criminal court says it threw out murder convictions against Amanda Knox and her former Italian boyfriend because there was absolutely no proof they were at the scene of her British roommate’s slaying.

The Court of Cassation on Monday issued its formal written explanation, as required by Italian law, for its March ruling vindicating the pair once and for all in the legal battle over the 2007 murder of Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy.

The court wrote there was an “absolute lack of biological traces” of Knox, an American, or co-defendant Raffaele Sollecitio in the room or on the body of the victim. Slamming the quality of the prosecution’s case, the court faulted the investigators for “blameworthy omissions of investigative activity.”

UK: Teen Seriously Hurt in Anti-Semitic Attack at Manchester Tram Stop

A Jewish teenager has been seriously injured after an anti-Semitic attack at a tram stop in North Manchester, said police.

Two men, 18, and a 20-year-old were also hurt at the Bowker Vale Metrolink station on Saturday at about 23:40 BST.

The young Jewish men were waiting for a tram when three men verbally and physically assaulted them.

The attack, which left the 17-year-old with a head injury, was being treated as a hate crime, police confirmed.

The tram stop was closed for investigations to take place. It has now reopened.

Det Insp Liam Boden, of Greater Manchester Police, said: “I know this will cause upset and anxiety in the Jewish community and I want to offer reassurance that we have launched an investigation to find the people that did this.

“This attack is being treated as a hate crime and I want to send the message that hate crime will not be tolerated and we will do everything we can to stamp it out.”

UK’s Labour Set for Trouble With a Corbyn Victory

Wildly popular among grassroot activists but isolated on the far left of fellow MPs, Jeremy Corbyn is poised this week to become the most unlikely leader ever of Britain’s main opposition Labour Party.

Party members and supporters have until Thursday to choose between the 66-year-old leftwing veteran and his three rivals — all in their 40s — with the results due to be announced on September 12.

But there is little doubt among bookmakers, pollsters and at the party HQ that Corbyn will triumph as Andy Burnham, Yvette Cooper and Liz Kendall — the three “reasonable” centre-left candidates — flounder in the face of “Corbynmania”.

The battle-hardened, bearded MP who has stood for Islington North since 1983, is known neither as an inspiring orator nor a charismatic leader, but projects the image of a humble man who travels by bicycle and cultivates his own garden in the north London district…

Egypt’s Finance Minister Says Discovery of New Natural Gas Field Won’t Stifle Subsidy Reform

Egypt’s finance minister says that the discovery of a massive new offshore natural gas field will not slow down his country’s efforts to slash energy subsidies.

Speaking at a business conference in Cairo organized by Euromoney on Monday, Hany Kadry Dimian said: “It will not stop us from continuing to implement the reforms that we need … or give us room to maneuver with delays.”

Italy’s Eni SpA revealed late last month that the Zohr field was the “largest-ever” found in the Mediterranean Sea, something could that alleviate Egypt’s need for gas imports in the coming years when a booming population will lead to a spike in domestic demand.

Rabat Bans Lottery, Gambling Ads

With lottery, 70 new billionaires in Morocco in 10 years

RABAT — Morocco has banned ads for gambling and the lottery, as well as cigarettes, alcohol and medicines. Under government law number 03-77, published on official bulletins, television and radio stations will not be allowed to broadcast commercials that are “haram”, or not in line with the Koran’s principles.

The sale, though controlled, continues so people will be allowed to keep buying lottery tickets, cigarettes and alcohol, although they will not be allowed to listen to commercials.

Though very expensive, the lottery has created 70 new billionaires in 10 years, according to official data and represents more than 7.5 million rickets a year for a turnover of some 150 million Dhm.

The measure changes a law on communication, also banning discriminatory ads based on nationality, ethnic group, community or religion.

Deaths of Gulf Arab Troops in Yemen Highlight Boots-on-the-Ground Role, Escalate Conflict

A deadly attack late last week on soldiers from oil-rich Gulf states deployed in Yemen as part of a Saudi-led coalition fighting the country’s Shiite rebels may well have been designed to break the coalition’s will. If that was the aim, it backfired.

Instead, the killing of dozens of troops — most of them from the United Arab Emirates — has upended much of the ambiguity about the U.S.-backed coalition’s boots-on-the-ground role in Yemen and is prompting the alliance to intensify what has effectively become a proxy war against Iran.

In the eyes of many across the Sunni-ruled Gulf states, Yemen — with its Iranian-backed Houthis — has become a key battleground in a Middle Eastern twist on the Cold War domino theory: if Iran cannot be checked in Yemen, the thinking goes, it could ramp up the pressure in Shiite-majority Bahrain and elsewhere in the region.

ISIS Demands Syrian Christians Pay Islam Tax

Terrorists force non-Muslims to curb faith

ISIS terrorists gathered together dozens of Christian men in Syria and told them to either pay a Shariah-inspired tax and sign onto a list of faith-based restrictions, or pay a penalty that could include loss of life.

The tax, called a jizya, as well as the contract, are aimed at ensuring Christians know and abide by their forced second-class citizenship, or “dhimmi” status, in the ISIS dominated areas.

Among the restrictions: Christians cannot own guns, build places of worship, show their crosses in public or even ring church bells, the Blaze reported.

The terrorists put forth their demands to Christian men gathered in the town of Qaryatain, a community that used to be home to thousands of the faith but is now dominated by radical Muslims

Toying With Russian Troop Deployment to Syria, Putin Appears Ready to Reset Relations With US

Signs of an ongoing Russian military buildup in Syria have drawn U.S. concerns and raised questions of whether Moscow plans to enter the conflict. President Vladimir Putin has been coy on the subject, saying Russia is weighing various options, a statement that has fueled suspicions about the Kremlin’s intentions.

Observers in Moscow say the Russian maneuvering could be part of a plan to send troops to Syria to fight the Islamic State group in the hope of fixing fractured ties with the West. They warn, however, that Putin would likely find it hard to sell his idea to a skeptical U.S. and risks potentially catastrophic repercussions if he opts for unilateral military action in Syria.

By playing with the possibility of joining the anti-IS coalition, Putin may hope to win a few key concessions. His main goal: the lifting of Western sanctions and the normalization of relations with the United States and the European Union, which have sunk to their lowest point since the Cold War amid the Ukrainian crisis. In addition, the Russian leader may be angling to make the West more receptive to Moscow’s involvement in Ukraine, while retaining influence in Syria.

Who is Really Responsible for the Death of 3-Year-Old Alan Kurdi

Abdullah Kurdi is responsible for the deaths of his family. Blaming anyone else is simply playing politics which, in Canada these days, is rampant

The picture of Alan Kurdi, nicely dressed and lying dead on a Turkish beach, went around the world and suddenly a discussion of the war in Syria that has mostly been ignored was ignited. Alan’s death became bigger news in Canada because of the Canadian connection to the Kurdi family and the fact we are in the middle of a federal election campaign where those on the left, including the media, are suffering the pangs of Harper Derangement Syndrome.

Alan drowned, along with his young brother and mother when the family set out from Turkey trying to reach the island of Kos in Greece, on their way to Germany. They didn’t get too far. The only family member to survive was Alan’s father, Abdullah.

The first misinformation to surface came from Fin Donnelly who was the MP for the British Columbia riding where Abdullah’s sister and Alan’s aunt, Tima, resides. Donnelly, who is running for re-election, said Tima has sponsored Abdullah and his family to come to Canada but the application had been rejected by the Canadian government. Those evil evil Conservatives.

It turned out to be an out and out lie. Tima had never sponsored Abdullah and his family but had sponsored another of her brothers. His application was rejected because it had been incomplete and the UN had not formally designated the brother to be a refugee.

Donnelly, not surprisingly, has never apologized for the misinformation. And the mainstream Canadian media, who once would have verified such information, simply ran with it.

Yemen Crisis: Qatar ‘Deploys 1,000 Troops’

Qatar has reportedly deployed troops to Yemen for the first time, according to the Doha-based al-Jazeera news.

One-thousand ground troops, supported by armoured vehicles and helicopters, are reportedly headed for the province of Marib.

Last week, 60 soldiers from the Saudi-led coalition were killed at a base in Marib.

The missile strike by Houthi rebels killed 45 UAE, 10 Saudi and five Bahraini soldiers.

The troops died after an ammunition depot was hit in the town of Safir.

Protesters Erect Tents in Moldova, To Protest Missing Money

They are demaning probe in 1,5 billion dollar case

(ANSA-AP) — CHISINAU — Protesters have put up tents in Chisinau, the Moldovan capital, demanding a probe into the disappearance of up to $1.5 billion from three Moldovan banks last year.

Organizers from non-governmental groups erected about 40 small tents Monday in a main square, a day after tens of thousands joined a demonstration calling on the government, the central bank governor, the general prosecutor and others to resign.

The state-owned Savings Bank, the Social Bank and Unibank, where the money disappeared before the November 2014 parliamentary elections, were put under the National Bank of Moldova’s administration in December, and the losses were covered by state reserves An unpublished parliamentary report said some of the money was transferred to Russian banks. The three banks are owned by Moldovan and Russian investors.

Russian Officials Propose Bill to Grant Every Citizen One Hectare of Farm and Forest Land to Use for Self-Sufficiency

(NaturalNews) The Pacific Rim of Russia could soon see a mass migration of young people if a government scheme to repopulate this largely uninhabited area is successful. In an effort to promote self-reliance and good land stewardship, the Russian government is planning to grant every Russian citizen who wants it one hectare of land for free as long as these landholders use their land for farming, self-sufficiency, and/or other legal uses.

Russia’s vast Far East territory is currently home to about six million people, but this number has been waning in recent years. The Russian government estimates that once the land grant program is initiated, 30 million more people could flock to the region, infusing new life into an area of Russia that would otherwise qualify as uninhabited Siberia.

“Free land grants [are] a powerful potential for developing our Eastern territories and an opportunity to radically — almost six fold — increase the far eastern population from 6.4 million to 36 million people,” stated Alexander Galushka, the minister of development for this region, to the Siberian Times about the program.

If everything goes as planned, the program will come into effect on January 1, 2016, and run for 19 years. Russian citizens who take residency on these appropriated land plots will have to prove during the first five years that they’re using them properly. After this five-year probationary period, land occupants will be given full ownership of their land in perpetuity.

Based on a government survey, the vast majority of interested Russians have indicated that they plan to use their land for self-reliance. Others have said they plan to become farmers, while a select bunch simply plan to relocate somewhere new in order to start a new life…

Russia gives land to its citizens while U.S. takes land away through Agenda 21

In either case, it’s a far cry from how the American government treats its citizens when it comes to land ownership. Rather than try to increase land ownership and spread the wealth around, federal bureaucrats in the U.S. are actually stealing land from rural citizens in an attempt to force all Americans into densely-packed urban enclaves.

It’s all part of a plan known as Agenda 21 that aims to “rewild” the vast majority of U.S. territory by forcibly relocating people out of their homes and into government micro-managed cities. The federal government already owns nearly half of the land area in nine U.S. states, it turns out, and U.S.A. Inc. is progressively eating up more of it with each passing day.

Chinese Woman Must Choose Between 2nd Child or Her Husband’s Job

BEIJING — A public outcry has been raised over the plight of a woman who’s considering an illegal abortion at 8 months because the child would violate China’s restrictive birth policy and would cost her husband his job as a police officer.

Members of the public have been phoning local officials in the couple’s Yunnan province community to inquire about the case, and an online travel service reportedly has offered the husband a position if he loses his government job.

The case has rekindled debate over whether employment in the public sector should be used to enforce the policy that limits urban couples to one child in cases where both husband and wife have at least one sibling.

Fidel Castro’s Dreams of Nuclear Armageddon

By Servando Gonzalez

Michel Chossudovsky is an award-winning author, Professor of Economics (emeritus) at the University of Ottawa, and Founder and Director of Global Research, Center for Research on Globalization, in Montreal. He is the author of several books on the subjects of globalization, the New World Order and the 9/11 events. Until recently, however, I didn’t know that Professor Chossudovsky had a soft spot for Fidel Castro…

It seems, however, that either Chossudovsky is a careless researcher — which I doubt — or he doesn’t want to see the facts that deny his beliefs of a Castro pacifist and anti-nuclear war advocate. On the contrary, the available record shows that Fidel Castro has always been an advocate for nuclear war. Actually, Fidel Castro is the man who in 1962 brought the world closer to a nuclear Armageddon than never before or after.

So, lets examine the facts to take a look at Castro’s true feelings about nuclear war…

Though Cuban crews were operating anti-aircraft guns, the powerful surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) were under the Soviet’s tight control, and the Cubans had no access to the bases and didn’t know how to operate them. Nevertheless, at about 10:00 a.m. on that same Saturday morning, an American U-2 was shot down by a SAM fired from a battery at Los Angeles, near Banes, Oriente province, in the eastern part of Cuba.

According to Seymour Hersh, there is strong evidence that, on October 26, 1962, a Cuban army unit attacked and overran a Soviet-manned SAM base at Los Angeles, killing many Soviet soldiers and seizing control of the site. Hersh based his article on information partly drawn from an interview with former Department of Defense analyst Daniel Ellsberg citing classified material from a post-crisis study of the event. The speculation is based on an intercepted transmission from the Soviet base at Los Angeles indicating heavy fighting and casualties. Adrián Montoro, former director of Radio Havana Cuba, and Juan Antonio Rodríguez Menier, a senior Cuban intelligence officer who defected in 1987, confirmed Ellsberg’s report.

Though both Castro and the Russians have categorically denied that the attack took place, Raymond L. Garthoff, Special Assistant for Soviet bloc Political/Military Affairs in the State Department during the Kennedy administration, claims that, in fact, from October 28, the Cuban army did surround the Soviet missile bases for three days. It is evident that, whatever really happened, Castro was frantically trying to precipitate a nuclear confrontation between the Soviet Union and the United States which would have destroyed most human life in the Northern hemisphere.

Actually, there is evidence that this is exactly what Castro had in mind.

6 Bln Euros From German Government for Migrants

New measures to make asylum easier from secure states

(ANSA-AP) — TRIESTE — The German government says it will spend 6 billion euros ($6.6 billion) next year to support the hundreds of thousands of migrants coming to Germany.

In a-late night meeting lasting until early Monday in Berlin, Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition government also agreed to introduce legal measures making it easier to deport-asylum seekers from countries considered “secure states” like Montenegro, Kosovo and Albania. Asylum-seekers will also get less cash in the future and more non-cash benefits.

German officials recently predicted that up to 800,000 migrants will arrive by the end of the year, many of them refugees fleeing war and persecution in Syria, Iraq and Eritrea.

The government’s aid package will include improved housing, more federal police and language classes.

Austria: Refugees Overwhelmed With Generosity in Vienna

The efforts from NGOs such as Caritas and ordinary people who have volunteered to help and donate money, food and clothing has been overwhelming, as this UNHCR video footage from Westbahnhof railway station shows.

Austrian authorities say more than 18,000 refugees arrived by train in Vienna after crossing the Hungarian border over the weekend, after an agreement with Austria and Hungary to relax asylum rules. Most were aiming to travel on to Germany.

Young and old have descended on the Westbahnhof and Hauptbahnhof stations with a common goal — to help the exhausted refugees arriving from Hungary.

Organisers at the stations had to ask people to stop bringing some donations at the weekend as they had so many and not enough space to store them all.

Austria: Create Hotspot for Migrants in Italy-Greece-Hungary

Interior Minister, ‘need more Europe and more solidarity’

(ANSA) — BRUSSELS — “We need more Europe and not less Europe”, the Austrian Interior Minister Mikl-Leitner said in a press conference after the visit of the EU Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos at the reception center Dreiskirchen, outside Vienna. “We need clear and strong answers” the minister said, invoking the need for “greater solidarity”. Mikl-Leitner stressed also the need to establish “hotspots in Italy, Greece and Hungary as soon as possible” and “strengthen the repatriation policy.”

Camp of the Apocalypse

“The West is empty, even if it has not yet become really aware of it. An extraordinarily inventive civilization, surely the only one capable of meeting the challenges of the third millennium, the West has no soul left.”

“At every level — nations, races, cultures, as well as individuals — it is always the soul that wins the decisive battles. It is only the soul that forms the weave of gold and brass from which the shields that save the strong are fashioned. I can hardly discern any soul in us.”

So wrote the great French novelist, Jean Raspail, in 1973 in his harrowing, apocalyptic novel, The Camp of the Saints, that foretold the coming disastrous immigration dilemma facing the nations of the West today. Raspail was far ahead of his time — with a brilliant flair for discerning the “big picture” of humanity’s precarious swings regarding culture, ideology, power, and politics.

The literati of the day heaped huge scorn upon Raspail for daring to tell them truths they were fleeing from. The mainstream press of Europe and America declared his disturbing novel to be a “preposterous, appalling screed.” Time magazine called it a “bilious tirade.” Columnist, Linda Chavez, labeled the book “racist, xenophobic and paranoid.” Almost to a man the media attacked Raspail with a frenzied hatred dripping from their reviews.

Admittedly the book has some racist verbiage that is off-putting. But these prose indiscretions committed by Raspail are picayune in comparison to the monumental message that he is delivering to his fellowman so lost in the decadent sewers of modern day apathy. The book is a didactic masterpiece, one of those gritty, salient sermons of fire and fervency that the daring minds of civilization create every hundred years or so when the societies around them are careening off into insanity. And is this not what modern society has been doing throughout the twentieth century?

Of course, this is what makes history the majestic but tragic enigma that it is. Humans continually wish to avoid the law of nature that is ingrained in their existence like the bloom is etched into the seedling of the rose. The natural law cannot be avoided, yet man never learns. He presumes he can climb to the moon on a rope of sand, that freedom no longer requires adherence to rights, that equal honor and fortune are prizes to be given to everyone no matter what their contribution to society, that nations are not based upon ethnicity and tradition, but upon arbitrary legal contrivance and can house multicultural hordes of aliens who do not share a common language, ideology, or system of values.

EU to Decide Who Has the Right to Asylum

Migrants from Morocco and Tunisia not to be admitted

BRUSSELS — Most asylum seekers in Europe come from Syria, Afghanistan, Eritrea and Nigeria. Syrians and Afghans enter mostly Greece and Hungary through Turkey, while Eritreans and Nigerians come to Italy from Libya. The European Commission is currently drawing up a list of ‘safe’ countries of origin — where the domestic situation does not give a right to request asylum in Europe — which will make it possible to identify more rapidly which individuals are economic migrants to be sent back. The latter will include Macedonia, Turkey and Montenegro, which are EU member state candidates, as well as Kosovo, Serbia, Albania and Bosnia-Herzegovina (‘potential’ candidates). Some 32,810 asylum requests were filed in the first quarter of 2015, 70% of which were from Kosovo citizens, fleeing poverty more than persecution. Using this list, Brussels believes it can speed up request processing to as few as five days in some cases. EU regulation requires processing within 6 months. At the current phase, those from North African countries such as Morocco and Tunisia will also not be considered eligible for asylum.

Europe’s, Canada’s, Australia’s and America’s Refugee Predicament

Question: at what point do first world countries begin collapsing under the refugee load? Answer: sooner than anyone understands.

For example, Germany, less than the size of Iowa, holds 82 million people in 2015. They already don’t possess enough room to water, house, feed and sustain 82 million as to resources. Yet, they face an endless mob of humans storming their borders “for a better life.”

Great Britain, about the size of Oregon, houses 62 million people, but expects another 11 million immigrants from third world countries within two decades. They already cannot sustain their own citizens, but the politicians allow the invasion depicted in Jean Raspail’s book: Camp of the Saints where he said, “You don’t know my people — -the squalor, superstitions, the fatalistic sloth that they’ve wallowed in for generations. You don’t know what you’re in for in this country of yours. They will swallow you up.”

Australia, already a bone-dry continent, struggles with its current 25 million population load, but races toward 40 million within 30 years—all because of its stupid immigration policies forced upon it by “Big Australia” corporations.

If you look at Paris, France’s latest 12 murders by Muslim immigrants, or the riots in Sweden, or the rapes in Norway, or the carnage in Italy, or the violence in Spain and the subway bombings in London not to mention beheadings and honor killings—they give ample credit to Raspail’s “They will swallow you up.”

Today in America, Congress forces 1.2 million legal immigrants (refugees) into the USA annually, year after year, with no end in sight. They arrive from the same countries that refused their own responsibilities for birth control and overran their countries’ carrying capacity. Congress also allows 500,000 to 700,000 illegal alien border jumpers to arrive into America annually by not securing our borders. (Sources: ;; )

Since 1965, those numbers continue their march into America with no let up, no pause, no questions asked and no understanding of the future consequences. Americans don’t think about it, don’t know about it, don’t care about it and frankly, do nothing about it.

Greece Asks EU for Humanitarian Aid to Cope With Migration Crisis

Greece asked the European Union on Monday for humanitarian aid to help it cope with what it called “a volatile situation” following the large flow of migrants and refugees from the Middle East and Africa onto its shores.

It requested the EU activate its civil protection mechanism, the bloc’s crisis-response body, to provide staff, medical and pharmaceutical supplies, clothes and equipment, the Interior Ministry said.

Greece is struggling to cope with the thousands of people fleeing poverty and war in countries such as Syria for Europe. Tensions have flared on eastern islands including Kos and Lesbos where most refugees land due to their proximity to Turkey.

Greece: ‘I Lost Everything’: Punishing Long March Across Lesbos for Refugees as Island Overwhelmed

They survived a perilous sea crossing from the coast of Turkey but for the thousands of refugees landing on the Greek island of Lesbos a new, even tougher challenge awaits — a 40-mile march to the main port in the baking sun.

The vast majority of refugees reaching Lesbos land on a deserted stretch of coastline near the tiny fishing village of Molyvos.

After sleeping rough for a night, they then set out south, trudging along steep and winding roads between olive groves, scrubland and wheat fields.

They walk because there are almost no buses along the route and because taxi drivers and local drivers have been told that if they pick up the refugees they could be charged with aiding and abetting people trafficking.

Greece’s migration minister has said at least two-thirds of the estimated 15,000-18,000 refugees and economic migrants stranded in “miserable” conditions on the eastern Aegean island of Lesvos will be ferried to the mainland in the next five days.

Lesvos bears the brunt of the refugee influx, with more than 1,000 arriving daily on frail boats from nearby Turkey. Most remain stuck there for days, sleeping outdoors until they can be identified, and then find berths on crowded ferries to the mainland.

Immigration, Altruism and National Suicide

by Paul Weston

If we could just see though the illusion of permanence and imagine the future photographs depicting what this will be like for non-Muslim Europeans then perhaps we could avert our eyes from photographs of Muslim toddlers washed ashore on Turkish beaches in 2015. The world is changing and if we wish to survive as a people and a culture we must defend our homelands against the migrant invasion. Yes, this sounds harsh, but if we do not we must then accept that our virtue today can only lead to unimaginable carnage tomorrow.

If you are moved by harrowing images of drowned toddlers (and who isn’t?) do please try to imagine what sort of life you are guaranteeing for your children and grandchildren if you allow your emotions to cloud the inevitable consequences of your present day altruism. How we currently think and how we currently behave will seal either our future destruction or our future survival. If you decide for destruction simply because it won’t happen next week or next year then you are betraying your country and your children. It really is as simple as that.

On a final point, there will be any number of half-witted and sanctimonious liberals who will be horrified by my apparent cold-hearted callousness. As ever, if you would like to invite me on to the BBC or equivalent to discuss this then I would be more than happy to do so. But as ever, you won’t because you know you cannot logically, morally or ethically argue against me.

Italy: Gentiloni Calls for European Asylum Rights

Refugee centre in Sicily must be closed says Salvini

(ANSA) — Rome, September 4 — Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni on Friday called for European Asylum rights to be established as Mattel Salvini, raucous leader of the xenophobic Northern League party, called for the closure of a refugee centre after one of its residents was arrested for the alleged murder of an elderly Sicilian couple.

Speaking in Luxembourg, Gentiloni said that “we have to move towards joint European asylum rights — it won’t be simple, but if we don’t do it and we leave each country to deal with the problems, I think we risk a lot regarding (the) Schengen (free movement accords)”.

The principle where asylum is granted by the country of arrival must be overcome, he added. At present that principle is enshrined in the Dublin regulation, which many EU members want to see changed.

In Sicily, Salvini visited the Cara refugee reception centre at Mineo near Catania on Friday, calling for its closure.

The centre hit headlines after one resident was arrested for the alleged slaying of a couple in their home in Palagonia, and the suspected rape of the woman. “Even the bishops’ newspaper, the 5-Star Movement and Forza Italia are calling for the closure of the Cara (centre),” Salvini said. “All that’s left are the baby Jesus and martians to call for closing this out-in-the-open shame, whose management has involved even the cooperatives of Rome’s Mafia Capitale”.

Salvini questioned whether all of its residents were actual political refugees requesting asylum.

“This is the fourth time I’ve come here. I don’t know how many other investigations, how many other interventions and murders and disasters still have to happen to close the Cara di Mineo. Here hundreds of millions of euros have been thrown away.” “Today I’m going to ask the nationality of the residents and we’ll see how many of the resident immigrants are truly fleeing from war.” Salvini claimed the migrant crisis can be resolved “speeding up procedures to identify true refugees and deporting all of those who aren’t actual asylum seekers”.

“But landings in Sicily and Calabria also have to be blocked, and there needs to be action in Africa.” Salvini also tweeted disapproval of European leaders’ handling of the immigrant crisis.

“Europe will punish member states that don’t welcome immigrants enough? Clowns. The umpteenth proof that this Europe is a dangerous cage.” “The EU and Italy have an embargo against the Syrian government and are accomplices to the ISIS massacres. Those images should wake up the consciences of those who pretend to be good but are actually true assassins,” Salvini said.

The images he referred to were photos distributed on social media in recent days of a three-year-old Syrian boy who washed up on a Turkish beach after drowning in an attempt to flee Syria.

Salvini also called European leaders “ridiculous” and said German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s “best effort is to say ‘I’ll take the Syrians’, the only people who are fleeing war, as if to say, ‘I choose who I want and you can keep the rest,” he said.

Upon leaving the centre, Salvini poured scorn on opening humanitarian corridors in Syria to allow for safe passage of refugees.

“There 40% of the territory is occupied by the Islamic caliphate, so there, truly, you’d need to intervene with bombs to exterminate those beasts.” In Ankara, meanwhile, Finance and labour ministers from the world’s 20 wealthiest countries met for the G20 summit to discuss economic recovery with attention expected to focus heavily on Europe’s current immigration crisis.

German Labour Minister Andrea Nahles said the immigration crisis could have an impact on the very idea of Europe.

Germany expects 800,000 immigrants this year, with an economy equipped to handle such an influx, and is already preparing measures to make it easier for migrants to enter the country’s labour market.

Italy: Salvini Calls Renzi a ‘Worm’

Heated views on immigrant crisis erupt in verbal barbs

(ANSA) — Rome, September 7 — Matteo Salvini, leader of anti-immigrant, anti-euro Northern League party, on Monday said of Premier Matteo Renzi, “a prime minister who uses a child for his electoral campaign is a worm,” speaking on Italian morning talk show Mattino 5.

“It’s squalid to insult someone who asks for certain rules,” Salvini said.

On Sunday, Renzi, leader of the centre-left Democratic Party (PD), told an audience at a political rally that in the immigration crisis, “it’s not the PD against the right, it’s humans against beasts”.

Renzi also showed a picture of Aylan, the Syrian child who was found last week washed up on a Turkish beach after having drowned in a Mediterranean crossing with his family.

Salvini on Sunday responded on Twitter to Renzi’s comment by referring to Renzi as an “incompetent blabbermouth” who’s “afraid, nervous, insults millions of Italians”.

“I’m a beast because I defend Italians? Ok then, I’m a beast. Renzi illegal immigrant,” Salvini tweeted.

Italy: Northern League Leader Dubs Renzi, Merkel ‘New Slavers’

“How do I feel? I feel like an evil beast,” Salvini quipped, referring to a remark by Renzi on Sunday calling those who whip up anti-migrant sentiment for electoral reasons “animal”.

“The good guys are Renzi, Alfano, Boldrini and Merkel, who want to uproot peoples to bring them to Europe as new slaves”.

“They have sniffed out a bargain … I believe that today Europe is governed by new slavers,” Salvini said, speaking with his party organ, Radio Padania.

Lesbos ‘On Verge of Explosion’ As Refugees Crowd Greek Island

Lesbos is on the verge of ‘explosion, the Greek immigration ministry has said, as the island struggles to cope with the influx of thousands of refugees, mostly from Syria.

“Mytilene (the capital of Lesbos) currently has 15,000 to 17,000 refugees and this is the official figure from all services,” Mouzalas, a junior interior minister, said. “We are placing emphasis here because the situation is on the verge of explosion.”

Lesbos is one of several Greek islands struggling with the arrival of thousands of refugees from nearby Turkey.

Orban said “How is this going to work? Has anyone thought this through?” Orban also said that migrants who had kept going after reaching safe countries like Turkey or Macedonia “want to live a German life. It has nothing to do with security.”

Refugees Try to Walk From Denmark to Sweden

A group of refugees who fled from Rødby station in southern Denmark on Sunday night have now set off on foot towards Sweden, where many of them say they have family members waiting.

Some 60 to 100 refugees left Rødby on the southern Danish island of Lolland on Monday morning with the intention to walk to Sweden. Danish police are escorting the group, which includes men, women and children.

Danish network TV2 spoke with some of the refugees, who said that they did not want to have their fingerprints taken in Denmark and be subjected to processing by Danish authorities under the Dublin rules, which state that the first EU nation to register an asylum seeker must process the claimant’s application.

Some refugees told the broadcaster that they had heard about Denmark’s tougher immigration rules and longer processing times in relation to Sweden, while others said that they had family members waiting for them in Sweden.

“I want to go to Sweden. I like Denmark, but my family is in Sweden. There is no family in Denmark,” one woman who declined to be identified told TV2.

In the below video posted to Twitter, those marching appear to be chanting “Malmö, Malmö” as they leave Rødby.

Refugees at Risk of Infection and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

While politicians argue over the details, European health services are gearing up to treat refugees from Syria and elsewhere. Many have a complex set of physical and psychological problems, and addressing these will be vital for helping refugees settle in the European Union, according to specialists in refugee health.

A whole range of chronic, non-communicable conditions can affect these people. A UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCF) study from 2013 found that Syrians arriving at camps outside their country’s borders had high rates of diabetes and high blood pressure.

Respiratory infections, diarrhoea and gastrointestinal problems can also be common, and the collapse of healthcare systems back home means that children may not be up to date with vaccines against common childhood diseases like measles, says Sharuna Verghis, co-founder and director of the Health Equity Initiative, a refugee mental health charity based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Slow Crossing Causes Tension at FYROM Border

Scuffles broke out early Monday between FYROM police and thousands of refugees and migrants attempting to head north toward Europe.

About 2,000 people had gathered at the Greek border near the village of Idomeni just after dawn, attempting to cross into Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. But FYROM authorities were allowing only small groups to cross every half hour, leading to tension. The situation later calmed after more were allowed to cross, with about 1,000 having passed the border by mid-day.

Greek police said about 5,000 people had crossed the border heading north in the 24 hours from Sunday morning to Monday morning.

Scuffles at the border have become near-daily as an increasing wave of people fleeing conflict and poverty in the Middle East and parts of Asia have headed to Greece from Turkey, aiming to cross the Balkans overland toward Austria, Germany and Scandinavia.

Spain Will Take in More Refugees But Says it is Overwhelmed by Petitions

The Spanish government has confirmed that it will take in more refugees than the 2,749 it had originally planned to accept before this summer’s sudden surge in asylum seekers.

The European Union wants to assign Spain a quota of 15,000 refugees, representing 12.44 percent of the 120,000 people that Brussels wants to distribute among member states.

Spain would thus become one of the biggest recipients of refugees, along with Germany and France.

Syrian Refugees Protest in Uruguay Saying They Want to Leave South American Country

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay — A group of Syrian refugees who were welcomed to Uruguay last year are demanding that authorities let them leave the South American country.

Uruguay welcomed five families of 42 Syrian refugees fleeing civil war in October 2014. Two of the families protested Monday in front of Montevideo’s presidency building. They say local officials promised more than they could deliver and that Uruguay is expensive and there are no jobs.

Maher Aldees, the head of one family, says he wants to travel to Syria or Lebanon, and that he and his relatives will continue protesting outside the presidential offices until authorities take them to the airport.

The Aldees family returned to Montevideo a week ago after spending 20 days in the airport in Istanbul, Turkey, where their documents were not accepted.

Syrian Invasion of Europe: A Day That Will Live in Infamy

In the past week, Germany and Austria opened their doors to a human mob numbering in the hundreds of thousands. Over 350,000 Syrian refugees and other Africans flooded into Europe, smashed the doors down and poured into Western society. And most of them: Muslims. Unable to maintain viable civilizations, they race toward successful countries—ultimately to destroy everything they inhabit.

Those immigrants constitute an armada that Jean Raspail described 40 years ago in his epic book: Camp of the Saints.

A reader Orsed said, “This prophetic book is not so much about the invasion of Europe as it is about the surrendering mindset of the majority of the French. Raspail quite ruthlessly examines how and why their culture was eroded by dissidents within, to the point that they were psychologically unable to defend themselves. Jean Anouilh perceptively called it ‘A haunting book of irresistible force and calm logic’.”…

America invites the same human mob into its guts annually: 1.2 million legal refugees. Our Congress and president allow another 500,000 to 700,000 illegally to cross our borders. The entire ethos, language and culture of America degrades with this invasion. Only Trump stands against the floodgates of history. It will be interesting to see if the American people stand with him or become victims of the Camp of the Saints.

Tech Helps Refugees Make Journey — and Survive When They Arrive

For the Syrian refugees marooned at Budapest station in Hungary, charging a phone can be tricky. There’s one outlet in the train station, another in the nearby migration aid offices, and a few power lines offered up by satellite news trucks on the scene. Local businesses are a gamble — some have started charging high prices for the privilege of plugging a phone in.

“It was very obvious that people were desperately trying to find ways to charge their phones,” says Kate Coyer, director of the Civil Society and Technology Project at Central European University in Budapest.

Smartphones are a vital survival tool for many of the millions who have been forced to flee Syria. Some say they relied on their phone’s GPS to navigate the thousands of kilometres into Europe. For example, The International Rescue Committee (IRC) documented one man’s trip from Aleppo to Hamburg, Germany, travelling by ferry, train, taxi and on foot. Throughout the two-month journey, he said GPS helped guide the way.

In addition, Facebook groups offer critical advice for those thinking of fleeing or already on the road. Some groups will help connect traffickers with their clientele, for better or worse. Others post real-time updates about which areas are safe to travel through — where the water is fit to drink, for example.

On Friday, when one group boarded a train that appeared to be bound for the Austrian border but then found themselves stuck just 30 kilometres from Budapest in the town of Bicske, those with phones posted warnings to those still waiting back in the capital.

‘They’re Not Refugees, They’re Migrants After a German Life’

Hungarian PM claims thousands fleeing war zones should stay in Turkey because they are no longer in danger

Large numbers of migrants entering Europe should be seen as immigrants, not as refugees, because they are seeking a ‘German life’ and refuse to stay in the first safe country they reach, Hungary’s prime minister said today.

Viktor Orban, a right-wing populist whose robust handling of the migrant crisis has drawn both condemnation and praise, also said the EU should consider providing financial support to countries such as Turkey which are near to the conflict zones so that migrants stay there and do not move on.

Syrians, Iraqis and others entering Greece, Macedonia, Serbia or Hungary are safe in those countries and, in line with EU rules, should have their asylum applications processed there, Orban told a gathering of Hungarian diplomats in Budapest.

‘If they want to continue on from Hungary, it’s not because they are in danger, it’s because they want something else,’ he said, adding that the migrants’ target was Germany and ‘a German life’ not physical safety.

His comments came as President Francois Hollande warned that without a united EU policy to share the burden of migrants, the borderless Schengen system would collapse.

Video: Italian Coast Guard Rescues 107 Refugees

Italian coast guard ship “Dattilo” picked up 107 migrants attempting to cross the Mediterranean on a make-shift raft, they were then transferred to the island of Lampedusa which has been transformed into an immigrant reception center.

It is thought that 20 people are missing after falling into the water before the coast guard could make it to the raft. The Mediterranean hope organisation talked to the survivors as they landed on Lampedusa, many exhausted and distraught from the loss of their loved ones.

Italy has had 100,000 migrants arrive on its shores this year, and the UN estimate that 2,400 have lost their lives attempting to cross the sea into europe.

Judge Who Jailed Kentucky Clerk Has History of Imposing Homosexual Agenda in Public Schools

The federal judge who held Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis in contempt and ordered her to jail for refusing to sign marriage licenses has on two occasions denied Christian students in Kentucky public schools their First Amendment rights by ordering them to undergo re-education training promoting the homosexual lifestyle against their religious objections.

In 2003, Federal District Judge David Bunning ordered Boyd County education officials to implement training, which mandated school staff and students undergo diversity education principally “devoted to issues of sexual orientation and gender harassment.”

A number of students objected to being forced to watch a gaystapo propaganda video denouncing Christian views that opposed homosexuality as wrongheaded and proclaiming homosexuality as a safe, healthy, and fixed lifestyle that cannot be changed.

When it was discovered that students would be punished if they didn’t undergo the training their parents brought in the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) legal organization, which sued the Boyd County Board of Education.

In 2006, the gaystapo tool was back at it. Once again he tried to force Christian students to watch a gaystapo propaganda video promoting the homosexual lifestyle, and denying Christian students the ability to opt out of the indoctrination training. Bunning ruled that an opt-out was unnecessary because the training didn’t mean that students would have to change their religious beliefs.

Bunning’s decision was overturned in October 2007 by the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. The Court ruled that a Christian student could seek damages from the school district because the training Bunning imposed had “chilled” the student’s ability to express his Christian beliefs about homosexuality to his fellow students.

Madonna’s ‘Gay’ Brother Defends Kim Davis

Christopher Ciccone, the openly “ gay” brother of mega-star Madonna — who made a name for herself in the ‘ 80s for her sexually graphic music videos and concerts — has put forth a strong statement of support for beleaguered and jailed Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, saying the same-sex community ought to back off their persecution of her.

On Facebook, Ciccone said Davis is owed the same level of support as a Muslim woman “ who insist[s] on covering her face and refuse[s] not only gay marriage licenses, but divorce, accusations of rape and driving a car without your man’ s approval,” he wrote, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Ciccone also criticized the federal government for unfairly enforcing laws, including marijuana regulations and “ the abstract notion of sanctuary cities,” the Hollywood Reporter said.

The Law Abider Who Sits in Jail

Exclusive: Joseph Farah asks, ‘What crime did Kentucky clerk commit?’

As you read this column, Kim Davis is sitting in jail.

What crime did she commit?

Actually, no crime. The Rowan County Kentucky clerk is in jail for contempt of court because she refused, on the basis of her First Amendment rights, to issue a same-sex marriage certificate.

Some people suggest she broke the law in doing so.

I disagree. In this case, Kim Davis seems to be one of the few parties involved in this controversy actually obeying the law.

The scofflaws in this case are the majority of the U.S. Supreme Court who violated the Constitution by legislating, a power explicitly denied to any branch of government except Congress. Congress had overwhelmingly approved a law that defined marriage as a union between one man and one woman.

Likewise, if we turn to the Constitution of Kentucky, we find this plain English provision: “Only a marriage between one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in Kentucky. A legal status identical or substantially similar to that of marriage for unmarried individuals shall not be valid or recognized.”

The U.S. Supreme Court has no authority to overturn the Constitution of any state. There are provisions in the law to amend state constitutions, just as there are provisions in the U.S. Constitution to amend it.

So which law did Kim Davis break or defy by refusing to issue a same-sex marriage certificate?

No law.

But, you might say, she defied a court order directing her to issue the certificate. That is true. She defied an illegal court order, one that was in defiance of the Kentucky Constitution.

We’re all mixed up in this country. We can’t get our heads on straight. America was set apart from the other countries in the world in that it was to be a nation under the rule of law, not a nation under the rule of men. There’s a big difference. That difference defines America politically — or did for some 230 years.

Canon Develops 250 Megapixel Camera Sensor

Electronics company Canon has developed a 250 megapixel sensor for use in digital cameras.

Canon said the sensor is sensitive enough to read lettering on the side of an aircraft 18km (11.1 miles) away.

However, it added, the gadget was unlikely to find its way into domestic cameras or smartphones.

Instead, the ultra-high-resolution sensor could find a role in surveillance systems or other specialised applications.

The Terrifying Tentacles of One World Governance

Your socially-engineered and indoctrinated kids will be dancing and singing in school praises to the Blue Zone Project. Is it Orwellian enough for you yet?

A series of rather transparent and “progressive” events solidified the path to U.N.’s Agenda 21 and one-world governance:

1. In 1961 U.S. introduced a program calling for all nations to transfer their military power to the United Nations.

2. In 1972 the U.N. Conference on the Environment took place in Stockholm, Sweden when the Canadian Maurice Strong became the Director of the newly created U.N. Environment Program.

3. In 1976 the Conference on Human Settlements in Vancouver, British Columbia, created “the first steps toward global governance” with 65 pages on land use in which they declared that “Public control of land use is indispensable.” The recommendations that appeared in this conference’s report are implemented in the U.S. and around the world as Sustainable Development (the lynchpin of U.N. Agenda 21, sustainable communities, and smart/green growth, as mandated by comprehensive land use plans). 4. At the World Commission on the Environment in 1983, Gro Harlem Brundtland, Vice Chair of the World Socialist Party, introduced the term and the definition of Sustainable Development—”Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” The concept and the definition sound innocuous enough until you start wondering, what are the needs of the present and future generations and who decides them and what is ability? It seemed like collectivism to me.

5. In 1992 the U.N. Conference on Environment and Development attended in Rio, Brazil by the largest crowd in history, 10,000 delegates and 30,000 NGOs, released three documents: U.N. Agenda 21 (a soft law, not a treaty) The Convention on Biological Diversity (a treaty) The Framework Convention on Climate Change (a treaty)

U.S. President George H. W. Bush signed two documents but refused to sign the Convention on Biological Diversity based on proprietary concerns of transfer of technology. All three documents were signed by the remaining 177 participating countries.

Henry Lamb wrote in 2010 that “Government control of land use is a fundamental principle of global governance.” The 40-chapter U.N. Agenda 21 document, although never ratified by Congress, limits the behavior and freedoms of individuals and firms, involving every facet of human life. It makes suggestions and recommendations that are adapted into law at the state and local levels through comprehensive land use plans which are voted on and included by the board of supervisors into local zoning codes.

Citizens do not understand U.N. Agenda 21’s damaging ramifications to their private property, to their ability to make a living, to use their land, grow food in their gardens, sell their fresh produce freely, engage in agriculture, sell their land, and pass it on to future generations. Local land owners do not have the opportunity to provide their input into the decision-making process; they are at the mercy of “visioning committees” and the board of supervisors, often plants or paid subscribers to the one world government idea.


I described in great detail the stated goals of U.N.’s Agenda 21 in my bestselling book, “U.N. Agenda 21: Environmental Piracy:” Stated goals of U.N.’s Agenda 21

1 Population redistribution according to resources (social engineering is taking place now through the flooding of immigrants from third world countries into the western world under the guise of refugee status and diversity) 2. Equitable distribution of resources by government control of land use (taking place under the aegis of many bureaus such as EPA, Bureau of Land Management, Wildlife and Fisheries, Park Service)

3. Zoning and planning controlling land use

4. Public land ownership controlling urban and rural land

5. Population control (massive abortions via government funded clinics that sell the aborted baby body parts and dwindling births in the developed world) 6. Government “Regionalist authorities” hold developing rights 7. Mega-cities with mixed-use, high rise, stack-and-pack miniature apartments with no parking but five-minute walk from work, school, shopping, and entertainment

8. Mass transit and removing people from their cars by making expensive toll roads, narrower roads, taking roads out of commission and making them into pedestrian zones only 9. Redraw neighborhoods to make them more diverse as dictated by HUD and insert illegal immigrants into middle class neighborhoods 10. Shaming people into owning land by calling it social injustice; Seattle is drafting rules that will ban single-family zoning; Seattle Mayor Ed Murray said, “We can still be a city for everyone, but only if we give up our outdated ideal of every family living in their own home on a 5,000 square foot lot” 11. Plans to manipulate human populations in rural areas

The one world governance will control and dictate:

1. Energy production, delivery, distribution, and consumption via Smart Grid, Smart Meters, and Renewables (wind and solar) 2. Food growth and production via FDA regulations 3. Education via a curriculum centered on Mother Earth, global communism, and global citizenship (Common Core, International Baccalaureate) 4. Water through irrigation denial to save a tiny fish, forced reduction in home use, recreation activities, destruction of dams and reservoirs 5. Population control to “manageable levels” through sterilization, eugenics (who decides and how?) 6. No borders, no sovereignty 7. No national language and culture, a multi-cultural hodge-podge 8. No Christian faith 9. Longer distance travel through light rail use for the masses while elite continue to fly and lecture the rest of us about limiting our carbon foot-print 10. Mobility restrictions [Just like in the Soviet — internal passports.] 11. Homestead in high rise apartments in order to designate formerly private land wildlife habitat


Henry Lamb told us that UNESCO, another tentacle of the United Nations, had taught seminars to teachers and disseminated curriculum materials that promoted the idea that nationalism was bad and had to be replaced with global citizenship. The textbooks of the International Baccalaureate plant the seeds of prejudice against national pride and support the idea that global citizenship and one world governance are viable solutions to the future of a socially, racially, and economically unjust planet.

    • I would imagine that the actions of those ‘refugees’ would still be pardoned by some – the most indoctrinated into self loathing – and a wake up call to others.

  1. Westerners must do more than block the migrant invasion. They must also deal with the existing immigrants who have been welcomed by traitorous Western leaders in the past.

    By what mechanisms will Westerners — whites — be inundated by hostile foreigners? At this moment in history it will be

    (1) by the migrant onslaught that we see now and

    (2) by slowing drowning in the higher birth rate of foreigners hitherto allowed to settle.

    And foreigners they still are and always will be. The contempt is palpable.

    ALL of the mass immigration has been without the consent of whites and the intent of the elites has been treachery. The inanely dissimilar races and cultures stupidly permitted entry are such as to absolutely guarantee bloody civil war, for there is zero possibility – z…e…r…o — that Islam’s ghastly practice of murdering apostates and chivvying for shariah supremacy and humiliation of a host country will ever cease. Muslims want only total victory over the kuffar.

    Yet these very people have already been welcomed with no demand whatsoever that they reject the Muslim “faith” in its entirety. Why should Westerners accept what is unacceptable? Why should we accept a rocket ride back to seventh century Arabia?

    Alas, Western nations with their feeble, emasculated, sentimental, gender-aware, media-besotted, sybarritic peoples will never bring themselves to face reality. Still, reality is patient, if unkind, and nonviolent population transfer is the term that must be eventually addressed. Lunatic behavior of the past does not have to be embraced or treated as irreversible. But it is optional.

    Given the course that Europeans freely choose in the present tempest, however, we can confidently draft the collective epitaph of that once vigorous and formidable people: “They couldn’t bring themselves to be not nice. The savages and primitives who conquered them found them to be contemptible nonetheless.”

    • Col.Bunny, WTF do you have to mention “whites”? I’m a white Brit, but have no particular problem with most South Asian Hindus or Sikhs, or black people from Africa or the Caribbean, since the majority integrate well with our culture and people.

      As has often been pointed out, Islam (our main preoccupation here) is not a race.

  2. There’s about 11 million displaced people still in Syria now (CNN report). And they all want to come to the west. But all I hear about are the 30 thousand at the border now– no body discusses the others.

    But like you said, the west has become too ‘touchie-feelie’, since the 1960s. the only way to deal with any problem is to go to the sorce. This would mean setting up resettlment areas in Syria itself. But the U.S –which would have to shoulder most of the burden, of a land WAR–won’t. We are still trying to keep Afghanistan pacified. after 12 years.

    I can’t think of anyway out of this problem either. Again I recommend the follwing History Channel documentary. It might be on You Tube :
    ‘Rome: Rise and Fall of an Empire’…mainly the last 3 episodes. It sent chills up my spine.
