Laughing into 2017

For tonight is New Year’s Eve
Uncork your spirits and welcome it in

It’s become somewhat of a New Year’s Eve tradition here at Gates of Vienna to post some or all of the lyrics to the song “Laughing into 1939”. Not every year, mind you, but occasionally.

When we first featured it, YouTube versions of songs weren’t always available. But by now virtually everything has been YouTubed, and I’ve embedded the song below so you can hear the melody as well as read the lyrics.

We’ve been laughing into 1939 for more than ten years now. Will the calendar page finally flip over to the Year of Doom this midnight?

Or will we get to live through 1938 at least one more time?

In any case, here’s a bittersweet celebration of the New Year by Al Stewart, the greatest lyricist of our time. It’s from his 1995 album Between the Wars:

Happy New Year, everyone!

The lyrics are posted below the jump:

When Did Leftism Go Bad, or Was it Ever Any Other Way?

Below is the latest in an occasional series of essays on the Left by our English correspondent Peter.

The Red Evolution II: When did leftism go bad, or was it ever any other way?

by Peter

I was amazed last August when the head of the Roman Catholic church, His Holiness Pope Francis, asserted that the most dynamic and rapidly growing religion in the last 100 years has been neither Christianity nor Islam but leftism. Leftism? When I got over the shock I had to ask why the demented old buffer chose to make this outrageous statement at all, never mind that it was only a matter of days after two Muslims slit the throat of a French Roman Catholic priest, the Rev. Jacques Hamel, 85, while he was saying Mass in his church. I am still at a loss.

I have no doubt at all that leftists believe in nothing, represent nothing and support nothing. They will bitch, bellyache, gripe and grouse for hours telling you what they are against, i.e. democracy, capitalism, Christianity, Western culture, nation states, conservatism; in fact everything that we in the West hold sacred. And they will overwhelm any contradicting view with raging torrents of well-rehearsed, high-decibel gobbledygook, generally as a diversionary tactic to prevent their victims from asking questions or, indeed, articulating any form of coherent riposte.

So how did leftism, progressivism, communism, liberalism, radicalism or whatever else you choose to call it become such a malign and malevolent force? It is commonly believed that the basis of Leftism evolved from The Enlightenment, but if so, how did such high-minded and principled people such as John Locke, Charles-Louis Montesquieu, Isaac Newton, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Francois-Marie Voltaire and many others associate themselves with a movement that would degenerate into so much evil? Many leftists deny the malignancy of the movement of which they have become part, but that is only to be expected. To the rest of us, the evil of leftism is only too clear.

The era of the Enlightenment ended with two momentous revolutions, both of which significantly and irrevocably changed the world. The American Revolution was a war fought against a colonial power by colonists who demanded and gained the right to self-determination and, in so doing, created a nation that would eventually become the figurehead of the free world. In contrast, the French Revolution in many ways became an inspiration to those who would enslave that world and, in the process, substantially undermine any meaningful discourse.

A great deal has been written about the French Revolution, and I do not propose to add to it. The revolution covered a period from 14 July 1789 until 27 July 1794, beginning with the storming of the Bastille and ending with the execution of Maximilian Robespierre. In between there occurred the Reign of Terror, a five year blood-bath, in which the royal family, so-called counter revolutionaries, moderates, reformers, priests, aristocrats along with anyone else whose face didn’t fit or who was adjudged to have looked sideways at a member of the Committee of Public Safety, were systematically put to death. Following the death of Robespierre, those who remained alive and in power decided, purely on the grounds of self-preservation, that the Reign of Terror had run its course and something approaching normality should now return. It has been estimated that 17,000 people went to the guillotine as the result of the terror, while over 100,000 were imprisoned after being denounced as counter-revolutionaries. This was relatively small beer when compared with the later excesses of Lenin, Stalin, Pol Pot, the Kim dynasty and Mao but it was clearly enough to shock the rest of the population into submission.

While the revolution was at its height, those who were engaged in its pursuit thought that not only was it a good thing to cut off the heads of their own erstwhile rulers and anyone else who incurred their ire, they should spread their new-found wisdom to their European neighbours, encourage them to decapitate their rulers, too, and ally themselves with France to form a coalition of like-minded nations — rather like today’s European Union. Unfortunately for the French, the leadership of the rest of Europe did not share their revolutionary zeal, especially the part about having their heads cut off. As a result of their attempts to export their revolution, the newly established Gallic collective found itself at war with Austria, Prussia, Holland, Spain and, the old enemy, Great Britain.

The prime movers in the revolution were, inter alia, the “Sans-Culottes”, the masses, along with the Girondins a radical group and the Jacobins, a revolutionary political movement led by Robespierre. The Jacobins were members of a political club that met at the Parisian Dominican convent in the Rue St. Jacques — Jacobus in Latin — from which they derived their name. It was they who set up the revolutionary dictatorship that dominated the Committee for Public Safety and the French Parliament, and it was they who instigated the reign of terror. It has been argued that the Jacobins were the forefathers of today’s political militants, and that the French Revolution itself was the birth of today’s leftist movement. Indeed, the behavior of the Jacobins bore a striking similarity to that of groups such as Antifa and Unite Against Fascism, who have assumed the right to assault and physically damage anyone who expresses thought processes incongruent with their own leftist template. The Jacobins were not very nice people but neither were the Herbertists, a radical revolutionary group that also played a significant role in the Revolution. They were fiercely anti-Christian, and actively supported the proposal later attributed to Pierre-Joseph Proudhon that “all property is theft,” using that premise to enforce state seizure of goods, often for their own enrichment. Their leadership went to the guillotine on 24th March 1794, following that of the Girondins, and nobody was sorry to see them go.

The year 1848 was ultimately referred to as the year of Revolution, as people rose up all across Europe and parts of South America to take part in the most widespread series of revolutionary actions in European history. Although this had all but fizzled out within a year, at its height, over fifty countries were affected and were changed significantly by events. At the same time tens of thousands of people were killed, and many more forced into exile. The revolutions were most important in France, the Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Italy, and the Austrian Empire, and resulted in significant lasting reforms, including the abolition of serfdom in Austria and Hungary, the end of absolute monarchy in Denmark, and the introduction of parliamentary democracy in the Netherlands. Curiously enough, none of this had anything whatsoever to do with Karl Marx or Friedrich Engels, but their time would come.

The Calais Jungle: It’s Baaaack!

Back in October the French authorities ordered the dismantling of the “Jungle” migrant camp near Calais. The camp was duly razed and its inhabitants dispersed, but the “refugees” didn’t abandon hope of getting through the Chunnel to Britain — they just relocated to other spots nearby.

Many thanks to Ava Lon for translating this article from François de Souche:

Calais: two months later, camps reappear and migrants return in greater and greater numbers

by Tom

Migrants — mostly returning from reception and guidance centers to which they had been conducted after the dismantling of the “Jungle” — are building new, more discreet camps under very precarious conditions.

Several hundred illegal immigrants returned to Calais some two months after the dismantling of the “Jungle” at the end of last October, says The Independent. According to the British newspaper, they are housed in six camps in rural areas away from major roads, in makeshift huts — and their number has been steadily increasing in the last few days.

Many of them are minors whose asylum applications have been rejected by the British government: after being diverted into reception and orientation centers (CAOs), they decided to cross to France to try their luck again in Calais.

“There are more and more people coming back, and just this week, there are dozens of them who have arrived; It can only continue and accelerate,” says Julien Muller, volunteer of the association Terre d’errance, who intervenes in one of these “secret camps” located in Norrent-Fontes, 43 miles from Calais. About 130 people live there, and even though it has in reality existed since 2008, it is only since the dismantling of the “Jungle” that it began to grow.



The Iranian Savior of Bashar al-Assad

Russia figures prominently in conversations about Syria, especially when Barack Hussein Obama and John Kerry are doing the talking. The regime of Bashar al-Assad certainly owes a lot to the Russian air force; however, the “boots on the ground” in the retaking of Aleppo have been supplied by Iran and its regional proxies.

Syria is a Russian client because it is first and foremost an Iranian client. Despite the Sunni-Shi’a divide — Assad is not Sunni, but Syria mostly is — the regime in Damascus has grown to depend more and more on its Iranian patrons.

The following article discusses the role played by the Iranian commander Qassem Suleimani in the successful pushback against the Islamic State in Syria. General Suleimani has overseen Iranian successes against ISIS and other Sunni militias in both Iraq and Syria, to the point where is almost the de-facto military governor of Mesopotamia.

The Man Who Helped Assad to Victory

Qassem Suleimani is Iran’s master of war and strategy in Syria. The commander of the Qods units is given to ice-cold calculation. Without him, the Syrian regime would probably not have survived.

by Rainer Hermann
December 19, 2016

Supporters of the Assad regime drive through Aleppo and celebrate their victory. In Tehran, the Iranian leadership celebrates the “Triumph of Aleppo.” That is what Ayatollah Mohammed Emami Kashani called the capture of the eastern portion of the city by troops loyal to the regime — a victory of “Muslims over infidels” as he calls the Sunnis and extremists among them. The victory is the result of “determination and tenacity.” He could also have said that the capture of Aleppo was thanks to Qassem Suleimani, who since 1998 has been the commandant of the Qods units — the elite troops of the Revolutionary Guard deployed abroad. As Ayatollah Kashani was speaking in Tehran, Suleimani was doing a walk-through inspection of the citadel sector of the city his troops had just taken from the rebels. A Shi’a flag was waving over the Omajjaden Mosque attended by the Sunnis.

As important as the Russian air force was for the shift in favor of the regime beginning in September 2015, it would have collapsed without Suleimani. He established himself in Damascus in the second half of 2012 and, with the help of a commander of the Lebanese Hezbollah, reorganized the regular Syrian army. He procured weapons and equipment, and later brought Shi’ite militia and mercenaries from Iraq, Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan. He had them trained and built a Shi’ite foreign legion of more than 50,000.

Who Needs the UN, Anyway?

The recent Security Council vote barring Israel from building new “settlements” brought to the fore the malevolent machinations of the OIC-dominated United Nations.

The entire process was cynical and manipulative on the part of Barack Obama, John Kerry, Joe Biden, and other anti-Israel officials in the United States government. They engineered the resolution, pressured Security Council members to vote for it, and then abstained from voting. All the other members voted in favor of it — including the UK and Russia, mind you — so the resolution passed unanimously.

This malicious parting shot by President Obama may eventually have the salutary effect of causing the USA to withdraw from the UN, or at least to defund it. I doubt that was the president’s intention, but it looks like the new Republican Congress — soon to be working under the leadership of President Donald Trump — could be moving in that direction.

The following essay about the festering globalist corruption that is the United Nations was originally published in France. Many thanks to Ava Lon for translating this piece from Boulevard Voltaire:

United Nations: the metamorphosis of woodlice

[Translator’s note: Seven paragraphs more or less explain what they mean by this title. If you look up ‘woodlice’, you’ll see they eat dead leaves and vegetable debris, like earthworms, but they are crustaceans, so they don’t have a metamorphosis in their life cycle. The authors of this article clearly failed their biology class!]

Obama will have succeeded one thing: making the UN obsolete.

Will the year 2017 mark the end of the “spring” and the return to the realpolitik of empires? Seeing the hyperactive panic of the globalist political class, one might believe just that. The narcissistic presidents Obama and Hollande, defeated by Trump’s victory, which destroyed thirty years of globalist work, and above all terrified by the rapidity with which the latter put on the presidential shoes, are reduced to leaving their mark… post-mortem.

With one target: Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Trump. It was enough for Trump to announce his plan to transfer the American embassy to Jerusalem to make a rabbit to jump out of the United Nations’ hat: Resolution 2334, passed without an American veto, makes Israeli settlements outside the borders Of 1967 — before the Six-Day War — illegitimate.

And [former UN Ambassador John] Bolton added: “Contrary to what Obama says, it is the end of the ‘two-state solution’… which basically cannot work” (Newsmax, 28 December).

The visceral reaction of the Jewish community… on Jerusalem. The eastern part of the city (known as the Jewish quarter) had been occupied by the Arab legion during the 1948 war, its population expelled. The “reconquest” of 1967 is now null and void.

And the fury of the Jews is directed at President Obama, to whom Bolton ascribes a “denial of Israeli as much as American exceptionalism.”

Culture-Enrichers Smuggled Into Belgium in a Truck Cooler

The following article describes the discovery of five African migrants concealed in a very small compartment in a truck traveling from Germany to Belgium.

Many thanks to Egri Nök for translating this article from

They were packed together in a tiny storage compartment:
Customs officers free five people from truck.

  • Customs officers in Aachen freed five persons from a truck
  • Particularly extreme: the smuggled persons lay huddled together in a small storage compartment
  • Investigations must reveal if the truck driver had anything to do with the smuggling

December 29, 2016

Aachen. Customs officials released five people from the storage compartment of a truck on Thursday morning. The truck had just passed the Belgian-German border at the former checkpoint Aachen-Lichtenbusch, when the driver stopped for a rest at the motorway station Königsberg. When he suddenly heard knocking sounds from a storage compartment, he hailed a toll patrol that was just driving by. The officers looked into the compartment and discovered five Africans who were huddled up in the small space.

This is how little space there was:

In this truck officers found five persons.

Federal Police who were called to the scene took care of the persons. They were slightly hypothermic and were then examined and treated by paramedics.

Further investigations by the Federal Police will determine whether the truck driver had anything to do with the smuggling.

A first evaluation of the fingerprints of two of the smuggled persons revealed that they are registered asylum seekers in France.

Investigations are still ongoing.

Michael Stürzenberger Writes the Swan Song for Die Freiheit

Die Freiheit is an Islam-critical party in Germany that was founded in 2010 by René Stadtkewitz and Marc Doll. In recent years it has been led by Michael Stürzenberger, who is also well-known for his articles at Politically Incorrect.

PEGIDA and AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) emerged after Die Freiheit. They handle the topic of Islam less gingerly than Freiheit, and are more outspoken about what must be done with respect to mass Islamic immigration. They are also more unabashedly nationalistic, which has hitherto been taboo in Germany. For these reasons they raced past Die Freiheit and eclipsed it in popularity.

Earlier this month Die Freiheit voted to dissolve itself, and tomorrow it will disband. Below is a farewell to Freiheit by Michael Stürzenberger that takes the form of an open letter to journalists.

Many thanks to JLH for the translation:

(Freiheit R.I.P.)

An Appeal to Journalists in Germany

by Michael Stürzenberger

At its December 4th convention in Nuremberg, the party Die Freiheit voted unanimously to dissolve at year’s end. The members confirmed this decision in a written ballot. This document states that all political tasks, including Islam-criticism, best reside in the hands of the AfD, and Freiheit is no longer needed. In this last e-mail as national head of the party, I would like to direct an urgent appeal to you.

Stop the euphemistic, down-playing, hushing-up reportage on the subject of Islam. It achieves nothing to stick our heads in the sand. History teaches us that appeasement only makes things worse.

Clarification of the dangerous political ideology inseparably connected to the religion of Islam has nothing to do with criticism of people. It is not about discrediting Muslims, but helping them to shake off the dangerous elements of Islam like persistently constrictive bonds.

When another terror attack occurs and the Muslim responsible shouts “Allahu Akhbar” in the process, do not once again translate that falsely as “God is great.” It means “Allah is greater”, and is a documentation of Islam’s claim to be the only true religion, and also claims exclusive worldly authority. The Islamic god Allah has nothing to do with the Christian, New-Testament, love-of-neighbor-and-enemy image of God. It is the polar opposite.

Construct no more phrases about the “so-called” Islamic State. It is the Islamic State. Everything that happens there is oriented towards the Koran and the model provided by the Prophet Mohammed, who — with the primitive, original Islamic community — robbed, enslaved, conquered, made war, killed, beheaded and executed critics.

Never forget that the Prophet Mohammed is recognized in Islam as the “seal of the Prophets,” the Messenger of Allah who makes the ultimate, authoritative announcement, and is to be emulated as a “complete human being” as well as a “perfect model.”

Never again claim that the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam. It is a 100% embodiment of pure and original Islam.

Never again claim that terrorist attacks by Muslims — 29,993 of them just since 9/11 — have nothing to do with Islam. They are the precise fulfillment of orders issuing from the Koran. Note that the Koran — unlike the Bible — is considered the word-for-word, direct, timelessly valid command of the god Allah.

Sharia — the Islamic system of law which to us is inhuman and barbaric — is obligatory for Muslims. That is why all Islamic states have tied the so-called “human rights declaration” of Cairo inseparably to sharia.

Never again uncritically broadcast the statements of Islamic functionaries like Aiman Mazyek. It is his job to protect Islam.

Marion Maréchal Le Pen: “The Fight Will Probably Take a Whole Generation”

Marion Maréchal Le Pen, the niece of Marine Le Pen, is a leader of the Front National in France. In the interview below, Ms. Le Pen discusses the deficiencies of French immigration policy in the wake of the terrorist attack on a Christmas market in Berlin.

Like her aunt, Marion Le Pen prefers to use the terms “radical Islam” and “Islam” rather than make a blanket statement about something called “Islam”. Still, her remarks are much more encouraging than anything being uttered by other French politicians.

A Nation of Amnesiacs

The Bundestag — the national parliament of the German Federal Republic — is not planning to hold a ceremony to commemorate those citizens who died in the truck jihad attack on the Christmas market in Berlin on December 19. The ostensible reason is that the parliamentarians are away on their Christmas break.

Germany is now an official amnesiac state. Its motto: “Never Remember!”

Many thanks to Nash Montana for translating this article from Epoch Times. You’ll notice that reader comments demonstrate a full awareness of the politicians’ real reason for the lack of remembrance:

Bundestag has no plans for commemorative services for the Berlin terror attack victims

The Bundestag is forgoing an official commemorative service for the victims of the terror attack at the Christmas market in Berlin.

A central ceremony is not planned, said a spokesperson for the parliament to the Münchner Merkur on Wednesday. The Bundestag is currently on Christmas break; the first session [of the new year] convenes on January 18, 2017.

Below are a few reader comments:

Sepp Adam • vor 4 Stunden

At a commemorative service it would be logical to invite the families of the victims. But in order to guarantee things go smoothly, it would have to be made sure that none of them would say one critical word about the “refugee” crisis and to put the responsible people on the spot in front of the cameras or microphone. To say it in “newspeak”, that would lead to a dreaded “instrumentalization” of the attack through the victims, and run contrary to the interests of the parties and the government. In order to prevent that, they simply will not give any potential criticism a stage, therefore no commemorative service. As the official reason, even the dumbest excuse (parliamentary Christmas break) is acceptable, because it is by far the lesser evil than to deal with the above-mentioned.

Lotte Silberfeil • vor 7 Stunden

At a commemorative service everybody will ask: who carries the responsibility for the death of these victims, who has committed a sin? The answer would undeniably be “Frau Merkel”; therefore, our government. To circumvent this accusation the responsible parties therefore decided to rather not hold a commemorative service in order to keep their reputation intact. Except their reputation was dirtied a long time ago! There are too many dead, raped, too many victims of crime etc!

Michi E. • vor 11 Stunden

Of course Gauck would have been the first one to call for commemorative services if the victims had been “enrichers”. They’re all traitors.

Markus Michi E. • vor 11 Stunden

Gauck also has a migrant background — he comes from the former DDR, which was even more racist. They had guest workers that they segregated. DDR citizens who married a guest worker had to leave the DDR after they got married and move to their partner’s home country. That way it would be excluded that they could move to the hated BRD [West Germany]. In many cases the partners were muslims from Algeria, because a lot of them worked in the DDR. The individual representatives of the government are suffering from amnesia. It explains to me why Eastern Germany has a different way of thinking. The former citizens of the so-called brother states were as popular as foot fungus.

The Civil Organizations of Soros Infect Like a Trojan Virus

The following article about the machinations of Soros-backed NGOs originally appeared in the Hungarian daily Magyar Idők. Many thanks to CrossWare for the translation:

The Civil Organizations of Soros Infect Like a Trojan Virus

Analysts were warned several years ago about the Open Government Cooperation

At the time, several US analysts sharply criticized the Open Government Cooperation, which Hungary left a few days ago — and then the news MSM fired a salvo at our government. As one of the overseas authors at the time warned: the International Convention has a George Soros ‘virus’ embedded, and it was a concern, that “civilian organizations” will exercise their right to arbitrage under the influence of the speculator.

Back in 2012, at the time of its foundation, many North American analysts were greatly concerned and harshly criticized the Open Government Cooperation. For example, Alexander Savchenko, the Foundation analyst, said the Open Government Cooperation (Open Government Partnership, OGP) aimed at government transparency is like a malicious virus that is hidden in the well-intentioned program for the OGP member countries who entered into the agreement.

Via non-governmental organizations connected to George Soros, the member states become vulnerable the speculator. The author maintains that the cooperation seemingly makes efforts to eliminate corruption, but in fact they unwittingly come under the influence of informal US-based organizations. According to the article, for example, it has partly emerged that these organizations were involved in the revolutions famously known as the “Arab Spring”, which ended in bloodshed, while the US extended its influence over the natural resources of the countries.

[We all know that when the author says US interests or US influence, in reality we are talking about the globalists: (Soros, Rothschild, Rockefeller, Clintons… etc), who hijacked the US political and military machine decades ago. However for the ordinary citizen it explains why the US of A is not well-liked at the moment anywhere! — translator]

The analysis shows that the devil lies in the details of the statement: in that document, which laid down that the nations that joined the OGP remain largely autonomous and they can make decisions, but one additional paragraph of the document states that in order for someone to participate in the collaboration with the governments in four priority areas ( for example, the transparency of the tax system, information availability) must meet certain objective indicators. However, the process is judged by faux-”independent experts” who all haves strong ties to Soros, and they scored the countries, and called upon national governments on the basis of the results, also suggesting the implementation of necessary steps. The agreement, looking at any one of the four key areas of the Convention, is not objectionable; however, it is suspicious and of concern that the right of arbitration was vested in same set of “independent experts”.
