Brexit on the Sands of Time

Tomorrow is the big day in the UK: the General Election. Will Boris Johnson remain Prime Minister, and implement some sort of faux-Brexit? Or will we have to endure a government under the ghastly Jeremy Corbyn?

Our English correspondent Seneca III sends his thoughts on these and other matters.

Brexit on the Sands of Time

by Seneca III

Above all things the Brexit Circus has given us a metaphorical microscope with which to examine the putrid innards of the Palace of Westminster and far beyond. It has exposed in detail the full extent of the devious workings of the establishment and its fellow travellers and their blatant contempt for democracy. It has most of all peeled back layer by layer the darkly flawed construct that is the EU and revealed the motivations, control mechanisms and future intent of those presumptive masters across the ditch.

The EU and, to a lesser extent the USA, thanks to what remains of its once sound constitutional foundations, are both monoliths built with good intent but now drowning in an ideological cesspit created by a political class consumed by an insatiable lust for power.

For as long as these huge, centralised constructs attempt to force one law, one retrogressive culture and one sort of politics on all different demographics trapped within their sphere of influence there will be resistance. Neither will China, in the longer term, be an exception.

In the US and the EU the founding objective of both continental collectives was to take their destinies solely within their own compass, justifiably in the former, case but the complete opposite in the latter. In the Old Dominion it was done openly after years of requesting reasonable and equal treatment (No taxation without representation!) by the Crown, but in the EU, starting after the secretive, early Bilderberg Conferences which culminated in the birth of the apparently benign EEC, it was accomplished surreptitiously by guile, back-room conspiracies, subterfuge, self-interest and lie after lie after lie… a process our own malignant collection of morally destitute and arrogant political classes here in the UK aided and abetted with alacrity.

Yet, on both sides of the pond, the current mindset remains recalcitrant and will not easily take to the threat of an existence bereft of individual freedoms in a vast human hive controlled by the few for the benefit of the few, not the many.

The SPD Moves Further to the Left

A shift in power within the Social Democrats (SPD) in Germany has made the party’s coalition with the CDU (Angela Merkel’s party) even shakier. The two new SPD leaders are pulling the party towards the hard left, which will force Mrs. Merkel to tack even further in that direction to meet their demands, or risk breaking up the coalition with the SPD if she tries to hold on to what remains of her power base.

There will probably have to be new elections: New SPD leaders want to renegotiate many topics in the coalition contract

After being elected by the SPD base, Saskia Esken and Norbert Walter-Borjans are the new party leaders, and the future of the grand coalition with the CDU is uncertain. This past Saturday evening both said that the SPD party conference next weekend should decide whether or not to continue the coalition with the CDU/CSU. CDU and CSU politicians called on the new top team to abide by the agreements. The Left party and the Greens offered Esken and Walter-Borjans cooperation.

Pat Condell: Full National Sovereign Independence

In the following video Pat Condell discusses next week’s general election in the UK. If Britons who want Brexit fail to vote for Brexit Party candidates (in constituencies where that is possible) then they will guarantee that there will be no Brexit, and the UK will be tied to the EU until the entire corrupt edifice collapses. In particular Mr. Condell directs his remarks towards working-class voters who used to be supporters of the Labour Party:

Jimmie Åkesson: “The Social Contract Has Broken Into Pieces”

Last month when Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven appeared on the TV program Agenda he said, “We did not see it coming,” meaning the current crisis of violence and lawlessness that mass immigration has brought to Swedish cities. He and his party did not see it coming, despite the fact that Swedish patriots had been warning about exactly that for decades (and were reviled by polite society for their views).

The above synopsis provides context for a recent speech by Jimmie Åkesson, the leader of the Sweden Democrats (Sverigedemokraterna). Thanks to the cluelessness and perfidy of the Social Democrats (and also the Moderates, the “center right” party in Sweden), the Sweden Democrats are now leading the polls as the most popular party in Sweden.

Greta Thunberg: The Avatar of the Totalitarian New World Order

Our Swedish correspondent LN has translated more material about the long-awaited climate messiah Greta Thunberg, and also includes his own introduction and afterword.

Introduction by LN

ZERO emission activist Greta Thunberg with her entourage is back in Europe. However, ZERO is not always ZERO. How will we achieve ZERO greenhouse gas emissions in the future?

The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency has calculated the matter and concluded that we in Sweden… will not be able to reach the long-term environmental goal of ZERO net greenhouse gas emissions until 2050.

ZERO net emissions, however, do not necessarily mean that no emissions are allowed. Up to one third of the emissions may still be present in 40 years.

While preparations continue toward reaching the ZERO emission target, more and more perceptive people are seeing through the Greta Thunberg & Coworker-led activism.

Here follows an essay from the Swedish dissident website Svegot Media:

Greta without a mask — the climate was a smokescreen

By Magnus Söderman
3 December 2019

Svegot Media

Many people saw early on what was behind the mask of this hectic “climate movement” attributed to Greta Thunberg and her school strike. But even more people understood nothing at all, and threw themselves into the new movement where they could signal their goodness. Unfortunately, it all turns out to be nothing but the same old left-wing extremism.

It may seem that you are good and stupid when you do not understand what it all was about. When the left-liberal media, left-wing politicians, a “philanthropist” like George Soros and the violent left (which forms the core of the Extinction Rebellion) gather around a common cause, then it’s about another united front — a classic modus operandi by the Reds. Choose one thing that many can agree on (get scared by), whip up the mood using your own old media and ensure that financing is handled with the help of capitalists and/or with tax assets. And over and over again it is the same thing that happens.

Climate change fit like a hand in a glove. Who wants to be the one who is “against” the climate? The question itself is also so big and cumbersome that one can refer to “science” and “ researchers” and entirely renounce one’s own responsibility. “The researchers say…” And so it was with that thing. It doesn’t matter if the “researcher” turns out to do “research” about gender or critical whiteness.

There must also be a sense of acute desperation when the matter is presented. Previously it was nuclear arms, or the arms race, or to rescue all children fleeing across the Mediterranean. This time the destruction of the Earth within 10, 15, 20, 50 years.

For those who are able to be guided by “opinion” and want to fit in (most people do), it is self-evident to be moved in one way or another. Maybe there is a certain amount of doubt, but it is still “for a good thing”. It’s also a great way to kick-start lazy youngsters. Although technology has made many young persons passive in real life, there is still in the young the will to riot. This is natural because part of the process of becoming an adult involves “revolting” and breaking away from mom and dad and learning to stand on one’s own two legs. This is something the Reds always have been good at cynically exploiting.

Tractors Converge on Berlin

Last week farmers from all over Germany drove their tractors to the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin to protest the country’s latest agricultural policies, especially those mandated by the European Union.

The first two videos below are news reports on the arrival of the farmers in Berlin. The third one shows what happened when Svenja Schulze, the Minister of the Environment, tried to speak to the assembled farmers.

Ethnic Replacement à la Thuringian

Akif Pirinçci is a Turkish-German fiction writer who in recent years has taken up social and political commentary. Incidentally, based on my understanding of Turkish orthography, Mr. Pirinçci’s surname is pronounced “Pirinsky”, which indicates that his family is of Slavic origin. Were his ancestors perhaps Bulgarians who were forcibly incorporated into the Ottoman Empire?

Ethnic Replacement à la Thuringian

by Akif Pirinçci

When my book Umvolkung (“Ethnic Replacement”) appeared, it was, as expected, hardly reviewed at all by the German MSM, and even if it was, it was perceived as the spreading of so-called rabble-rousing, exploring incitement against peoples and all the rest of the Nazi nonsense. From that time to now, the method of silencing by means of the establishment media has been established as the most effective.

Naturally the book — like all my books, by the way — was and is not available through the book trade and later could be acquired on the internet only at Amazon Marketplace. Nonetheless,70,000 copies of Umvolkung have been sold to date by my wholly owned publisher, Antalos Verlag.

And not just that. The concept I borrowed from the National Socialists of ethnic replacement has since become a “wingèd word”, which enrages both the neutral observers of the continuing, already vast ethnic replacement and its deniers. The latter mock the phenomenon as a rightist conspiracy theory, although — living as they do in the middle of the country — it may be difficult for them to hear the German language for a full five minutes at a time.

As to the Nazis, I explain clearly in my book that ethnic replacement at that time was, and remained, merely a fantasy of their elite. In contrast, today’s Germany is not actually exchanging its population, but consciously creating circumstances which people can only escape by emigration, forced acceptance of what is culturally alien or involuntary genocide by ceasing to reproduce.

Ethnic replacement is caused by changing the rules for the continued existence of a people so that anyone who resists is faced — in the name of a presumptuous interpretation of human dignity and of the sock puppet of humanism — with criminalization, denial of livelihood and exclusion from society and participation in social life. Any objection to the compulsory loss of homeland and the nature of its native people with the natural rejection of what is alien is now seen as a crime, which almost always has legal, or at least professional consequences.

Until recently, such thoughts were regarded as hallucinatory, as fantasy scenarios dreamed up by xenophobic rightist paranoiacs mutually self-escalating on the internet like Nazi talk among Nazis. But since the election in Thuringia, in which the evil AfD won only 25% of the vote that stood for the battle against ethnic replacement, the ladies and gentlemen of the press have dropped the mask. They really want ethnic replacement!

An excellent example of that is the October 27, 2019 article by a certain Christian Bangel at ZEIT-online, entitled “Nothing is lost”. Actually it is the usual lousy Green-Leftist dreck, indicating that anyone who thinks differently and votes as a moderate deserves to be liquidated. But for the first time an explicit guide to achieving the goal of ethnic replacement is offered by a renowned organ of the press. It is hidden on page 2.

We All Knew This Would Happen, We Just Neglected to Tell You

For more than a decade Sweden’s ruling class — including political leaders and the media — has denied that there are any problems in the country’s banlieues caused by the mass importation of Third World immigrants. Except for problems caused by those WAYCIST Swedes, of course.

Now it seems that the truth about cultural enrichment has become so blatant that it can no longer be denied. The response of the Swedish media establishment? “We knew all along that things would end badly; we just forgot to tell you.”

And they blame the politicians.

Lena Mellin on the violence: “That it would go to hell has been known for years”

November 17, 2019

Aftonbladet‘s Lena Mellin now states that it has long been widely known that the suburbs would “go to hell”. The 64-year-old left-wing journalist calls on Swedish politicians to be “ashamed”.

“All parties, with the possible exception of the Left Party and the Sweden Democrats [SD], who hardly affected the reality on this point, should be ashamed,” writes Lena Mellin in a report.

According to her, politicians have “largely neglected the development in some of our suburbs” even though “everyone knew it would end in disaster.”

However, Lena Mellin’s masterful tone, which is thus directed entirely at the politicians and not at the media, has attracted criticism.

“Incredible! Lena Mellin, of all journalists one of the foremost advocates for mass immigration and multiculturalism, one of the worst SD-haters, claims that ‘one has known for years’ that it would go to hell,” writes, for example, the former SD summit Ted Ekeroth on Twitter.

When Justice Isn’t

Tabitha Korol’s latest essay confronts the current craze for Social Justice Warfare.

When Justice Isn’t

by Tabitha Korol

A letter written by a local elementary school teacher — I’ll call her “Mrs. Krieg” — was brought to my attention by a mutual acquaintance. In light of the notice that honor classes will be discontinued, she thoughtfully agreed that equity (defined as fairness and impartiality) in the schools should benefit all students. Regrettably, she has been influenced by terminology that has been devalued and redefined to become a tool for social engineering among students. Such revisionism has been applied to Equity, Diversity and Social Justice, and comes at the expense of freedom and true justice.

Honors classes were designed to challenge students academically. The advanced work, faster pace, and higher course-credit weight have provided for smarter, happier, well-rounded children who had the opportunity to flourish according to their capabilities and not misbehave out of boredom. But now, the authorities have determined it best to cancel the honor courses across the country because of a “lack of diversity” — that is, more Caucasian and Asian students were engaged than Blacks, Latinos and Native Americans. Instead of also providing honors classes that meet the interests of the low-energy students — perhaps music, theater, artisanal handicrafts — the Department of Education has decided to close the achievement gap by lowering the bar and expectations and discontinuing all incentives. Mrs. Krieg did not foresee that by eliminating the incentives and opportunities, the resulting “equity” would be mediocrity and the loss of exceptional achievement.

Now the Department of Education will generate equity in boredom, discontent, resentment, truancy and delinquency. Academia is not unaware of these inevitabilities. Their purpose is not an improved education but the decline of achievement and the elimination of the exceptional. Former President Obama expressed a similar derogatory outlook when he denounced high-achieving Americans by saying, “You didn’t build that.”

Diversity in the schools no longer describes a richness of ideas, course studies, or specialty careers, but defines and categorizes the students themselves, by race, religion, ethnicity, financial status, sexual orientation, and however else the students choose to differentiate themselves. As with the term “equity,” the meaning of “diversity” has been corrupted, as it now implies division, divisiveness, and discord, the opposite of E Pluribus Unum — Out of many, One. These differences have led to a totalitarian-style monitoring and bullying — called Speech Control, necessitating “Diversity Officers” with doctoral degrees, credentials in counseling and inclusion techniques, and six-figure salaries reflected in higher tuition costs. The officers’ mere presence confirms the growing disharmony, isolation, discrimination, harassment, and violence that characterize the socialist strategy. These points are significant:

What White Privilege?

What White Privilege?

by Fjordman

One concept that has become influential in American society is the notion of “white privilege.” This is the idea that Europeans and people of European origins overseas enjoy special privileges due to their skin color and ethnic background. The related concept of “whiteness studies” is now also widely established in American universities. African studies celebrate Africans and Asian studies celebrate Asians. Yet whiteness studies have a generally negative focus on Europeans, their cultural identities, history and achievements.

Because the USA has been the dominant economic and cultural power in the Western world since the Second World War, ideas such as “white privilege” and “whiteness studies” are also exported to Europe. The notion of “white privilege” is already questionable in North America, where Europeans do not constitute the native population. The concept becomes entirely meaningless in Europe, where Europeans are the natives.

The ongoing mass immigration to Europe is sometimes portrayed as a “payback for colonialism.” It is true that some European nations such as Portugal, Spain, France, Britain and to a certain extent the Netherlands had colonial empires in the past. However, Algerians and other Africans were considered justified in expelling French people from their soil. If so, why should the French accept being colonized by Algerians or other Africans today?

The British did rule the entire Indian subcontinent. However, they were never very numerous there during colonial times. They did not displace the natives in their major cities. In contrast, the white natives already are a minority in many urban areas throughout Western Europe today. It is increasingly difficult to find an ethnic English person in parts of London, or a native Frenchman in parts of Paris.

Moreover, the British, French and other Europeans also built hospitals, railways and infrastructure in the areas they ruled. The population explosion in the global South is partly due to European science and technology.

Contrast this with the behavior of far too many of the recent immigrants to Europe. Muslims, many of them from Pakistan and Bangladesh, are currently engaged in sexual abuse, gang rapes and torture of native white girls in cities across Britain. This did not happen in South Asia when the British ruled there. British authorities knew about these crimes for years, but covered them up because they were scared of being called racists. Do white girls who are drugged and raped by Muslims in Britain enjoy white privilege? Does Tommy Robinson enjoy “white privilege” for being jailed while protesting the literal and metaphorical rape of his people?

Smaller countries such as Norway and Finland gained their national independence in the early twentieth century. At this point, neither of them held any colonies. Yet today there are Muslims from Bangladesh, Syria and Afghanistan living in Finland. Norway has sizeable and growing communities of Pakistanis and Somalis, even though Norwegians have never ruled Pakistan or Somalia throughout all of history. Oslo is the capital city of a small country straddling the Arctic Circle. Yet there may well be more ethnic groups living in Oslo today than there are member states in the United Nations (UN).

Like many other European countries, Norway has essentially become a hyper-colony for the entire planet. This mass immigration also costs a lot of money through welfare payments. The white natives are thus forced to fund their own colonization and are expected to applaud their national destruction. What kind of privilege is that?

The Three Monkeys

The Three Monkeys

by Tabitha Korol

Even when one American — who has done nothing wrong — is forced by fear to shut his mind and close his mouth, then all Americans are in peril. — Harry Truman

Some years ago, when I visited family in Buenos Aires, I was taken to a country club, one that no doubt had been quite fashionable in its heyday, an era of more than a half-century before. What I saw now were the remnants of elegance, broken tile floors and grounds that were surrendering to the incursion of weeds, signs of a government that was not of, by, or for the people.

I was introduced to Beatriz, one of a group sitting poolside who spoke enough English to complement my conversance in Spanish. Her interests included theater, but she soon came around to expressing her disdain for America because we had the temerity to build the tallest Twin Towers of the World Trade Center to flaunt our wealth and we were therefore deserving of the 9/11 destruction! I explained that America was not in the real estate business, that businesses constructed buildings high enough to accommodate more companies on an island that could not expand into the surrounding ocean — and does envy render pardonable the death of thousands? I’d already known about and noted that Dubai held the dubious honor of having the world’s tallest building and I have since learned that America’s first skyscraper was the Home Insurance Building in Chicago in 1886. A formidable ten stories high! What an impudent undertaking!

She also disparaged America because she reads so much about our country in their local papers, but so little of her own. I clarified our freedom of the press, that our journalists were free to report about anything to be read anywhere, whereas Argentina’s despotic regime undoubtedly controlled what was reported or withheld from the public. Our chat soon dwindled, and we turned to join other conversations. I suppose Beatriz would now be gleeful to learn that our socialist news sources also withhold the news, and actually craft their reports to suit their biased perspective.

We were born with a power of thought and speech, the ability to ideate and communicate to others, our equals under God and superior to other life forms. Yet there is a powerful faction, a self-anointed, arrogant cabal of leftists, socialists, globalists, the sharia-compliant, and the United Nations — that has placed itself beyond criticism, determined to destroy our humanity. In true totalitarian fashion, they have long been indoctrinating our vulnerable youth in schools, while the media brainwash the population at large, special forces (CAIR) influence our clergy, and shadow opponents work against our duly elected president.

With God removed from the classroom during the Obama years, and more recently from the oaths in Congress, the new, highest “Authority” fills the void, and the weak in faith and the undereducated succumb to the new rulers. The Authority now has the facility to take God-given life, before and after birth, and use any means and myths to threaten destruction and visit misery upon the masses.

Indoctrination is used to manipulate, make fearful, insinuate doubt and distrust of centuries-old truths, Biblical concepts of morality and basic human rights, science and logic. Our history is dismissed as inaccurate and evil, our Constitution proclaimed inessential. In fact, without amending the Constitution, the Authority has profoundly impacted the First Amendment with its control over the press/media and our freedom of speech. Words have been expunged from our vocabulary through intimidation or had their definitions twisted, so that “diversity” has led to more polarization, justice to “social justice,” liberty denounced for equality, and the FBI manuals purged of crucial information to disguise the threat of the lethal ideology of Islam. Children are immersed in Islamic rituals, prayers, and anti-Zionist ethnic studies, learn nothing about the dangers of totalitarianism, and the public is bullied into silence.

A Good Trick

Good Trick

How they’re giving us the bird with the electric re-allocation charge, what was left out of the climate packet, and what Merkel wants with Huawei.

Satiric week-in-review

by Hans Heckel
October 19, 2019

Well, at least that’s something. So as not to annoy the Germans too much, the despised EEG levy, also called the Clean Energy Assessment, will — just in time for the 2021 Bundestag election — be lowered by 0.25 cents per kilowatt hour. The money will not, of course, be sent to us. It is only intended to balance out a part of the already foreseen CO2 tax, which could lead to undesirable decisions in the voting booth.

The lowering of the EEG levy is a signal that the political establishment also takes seriously the worries of the lower income strata. That is, they are not just paying attention to the climate concerns of those living in mini-mansion neighborhoods and chic historical districts frequented by politicians and leading journalists. It warms the heart and makes skeptical voters mellow.

So, on January 1, 2021, the “lowering” of the levy will see a change from 6.4 cents to 6.5 cents. A reason for hard-pressed electricity consumers to breathe a sigh of… Wait a minute!

Since when is a change from 6.4 cents to 6.5 cents a “lowering”? Is that a typo? No, No. It’s a simple trick. On January 1, 2020, they will raise the price more than 5% to a whopping 6.75 cents, then just a year later offer us a price of 6.5 cents as an epic unburdening of households. Clever, isn’t it?

Will anyone notice? Not likely, or the people responsible for this would stay away from such a ruse. A year is a long time to drive the climate hysteria to never-before-seen heights. Who is going to nit-pick “levies” when the planet is at stake? See?

It doesn’t matter that the world is hardly engaged, and the German uproar over CO2 has no measurable effect worldwide. Germany is, after all, a rich country and obligated to play a leading role in saving the world’s climate. The others will see that we are right, and fall in line. That is what they did with the no-borders intake of asylum seekers, right? No they didn’t. And won’t. Nonetheless, our Interior Minister Seehofer acts as though they were, and sends inviting signals to the potential lands of the wave of future asylum seekers, which, by all accounts, is already forming up. But let’s stay with the climate thing. In this case, there is the ominous possible erosion of a decisive base supporting the construct of the whole climate thing — i.e., that stuff about being a “rich country”.

It has occurred to one attentive writer that nowhere in all of the government’s climate package does the idea of “competitiveness” appear. As the country next to Denmark in the world in highest electric costs and an equivalent percentage of exports, completely ignoring this aspect is quite an accomplishment.

This author suggests, in Cicero, that a “borders compensation system” be concluded swiftly with our trading partners to offset the climate-policy-determined higher German prices. In other words, Berlin should convince the administrations of our competitors to artificially raise the cost of their exports and artificially lower the cost of their imports so that the good Germans do not throw themselves under the wheels of their own runaway policy.
