The Chancellor’s Life After Death

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has a strange political resilience. There was a time when antics such as hers would have long since driven a political leader from office, but Mutti Merkel just keeps going on. And on, and on, and on…

JLH, who translated the snip below, sends this explanatory note:

The following brief quote is from the regular feature by Henryk Broder, Broders Spiegel, which begins with “Mirror, mirror, on the wall” (what’s new this week?).

The translation from Die Achse des Guten:

Broder’s Mirror: The Chancellor’s Life After Death

I have nothing more about the chancellor. I have written myself out, talked myself out, thought myself out, cursed myself out. Nothing more there. And then this speech at Harvard. The epitome of nothing. Hans Dieter Hüsch [cabaret performer, songwriter, author, etc.] would have said: Nothingness is running full speed ahead. And this thunderous applause for it. I have no words.

Trolling for the Muslim Vote in Denmark

The number of Muslims living in Denmark has grown large enough to have electoral significance. And, as in all other Western countries, Muslims organize themselves to vote as a bloc, usually for the left-wing parties — the Left seems more willing than the Right to adopt policies that attract Muslim votes.

Tania Groth, who translated the article below, includes these remarks:

Four years of leftist socialist, globalist open-doors government spells no end of trouble for Denmark. This election was a watershed moment, and it would not surprise me at all if we have seen the last of any future conservative government (not that the last “conservative” government was any great force in stemming the tide — on the contrary — and the immigration-critical Danish People’s Party did pretty much nothing).

In any case, with the demographic situation and Muslims organizing themselves to vote for radical leftist parties… it is the beginning of the end. Denmark is gaining speed on the slippery slope and, alas, they’re either too dumb to realize it, or too lazy to do anything about it.

I despair for my fellow Danes, I truly do.

The translated article from Jyllands-Posten:

The mobilization of Muslim voters, which led to massive advances in the Radical Liberals in vulnerable residential areas, does not please everyone.

“It worries me, because it shows that there is no separation of the various powers, but instead parties are bonded together not on political grounds, but rather on the premises of Islam. It can affect the very basic uniformity we have in Danish society,” says Søren Hviid Pedersen, a debater and high school teacher with a PhD in political theory.

As Jyllands-Posten reported Friday, in urban districts that are on the government’s ghetto list, there was an organized mobilization of the area’s residents. In Gellerup in western Århus, an electoral group was set up, which in co-operation with a mosque and various associations, recommended that people vote for the Radicals and the Unity List.

Nor does it please the debater and priest Sørine Gotfredsen:

“When you begin with this mobilization, and even stand with authorities in the lead recommending specific parties (to vote for), the parallel society has gone from being introverted and closed and in general completely deaf towards the surrounding society to wanting to enter into the debate in order to change society. The parallel society comes a step further in the struggle for what defines Denmark.”

In Gellerup the Radical Liberals went from a voting share of 5.1 percent in 2015 to 34.2 percent in 2019. The same trend was seen in Vollsmose, Tingbjerg and in Nørrebro, where the Unity List is also strong.

Revenge is Macron’s

Since his election as the president of France, Emmanuel “Toy Boy” Macron has made it abundantly clear that anyone in public life who crosses him will experience severe repercussions.

In the following video, Pierre Cassen of Riposte Laïque lists the various people who have been subjected to the vengeance of Emmanuel Macron. Marine Le Pen is the most notable, but she is only one of many.

Many thanks to Ava Lon for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Ava Lon has kindly supplied some background on the dramatis personae mentioned in Mr. Cassen’s monologue:

Gérard Collomb is a French politician of the Socialist Party. He served as Mayor of Lyon from March 2001 to July 2017 and was from May 2017 until October 2018 the Minister of the Interior in the Philippe Government. Unhappy with President Emmanuel Macron’s government, Collomb resigned in order to run again for mayor of Lyons. He is currently municipal councillor for the city of Lyon and councillor for the Metropolis of Lyon.

Rachida Dati is a French politician and Member of the European Parliament, representing Île-de-France. Prior to her election, she held the cabinet post of Keeper of the Seals, Minister of Justice. She was a spokesperson for Nicolas Sarkozy during the French presidential election of 2007. After his victory, Sarkozy appointed her to his Government on 18 May 2007. She was elected mayor of the 7th arrondissement of Paris on 29 March 2008.

Jean-Luc Antoine Pierre Mélenchon is a French politician serving as the member of the National Assembly for Bouches-du-Rhône’s 4th constituency since 2017.

After joining the Socialist Party in 1976, he was successively elected municipal councillor of Massy (1983), General Council of Essonne (1985) and Senator of the same department (1986, reelected in 1995 and then 2004). He also served as Minister for Vocational Education between 2000 and 2002, under Minister of National Education Jack Lang, in the cohabitation government of Lionel Jospin. He was part of the left wing of the Socialist Party until the Reims Congress of 2008, at the outcome of which he left that party to found the Left Party with Marc Dolez, a member of the National Assembly. He served as the president of the party, and then as its co-president (along with Martine Billard) until August 2014.

As leader of the Left Party, he joined the electoral coalition of the Left Front before the 2009 European elections, and was elected as a member of the European Parliament in the South-West constituency(reelected in 2014). He was the candidate of that coalition in the 2012 presidential election, in which he came in fourth, receiving 11.1% of the first-round votes. He founded the movement La France Insoumise (FI, “France Unbowed”) in February 2016. He stood as a candidate in the 2017 presidential election “outside the frame of political parties”, again coming in fourth, with 19.58% of the first-round votes. In June 2017 he became a member of the National Assembly for La France Insoumise after the following 2017 French legislative election, receiving 59.85% (in the second round) in the 4th constituency of Bouches-du-Rhône, entirely located in the city of Marseille.

Gabriel Attal is a French politician who is a member of the political party La République En Marche!

Stéphane Séjourné is a French politician who was elected as a Member of the European Parliament in 2019. ( He was the director of the En Marche campaign.)

Diana West: “The Victors in America Were the Communists”

In her latest book, The Red Thread: A Search for Ideological Drivers Inside the Anti-Trump Conspiracy, Diana West investigates the Communist influences on various players in the “SpyGate” and “Russian collusion” conspiracies that aimed to take down Donald Trump. The focus on the Red Thread has reopened discussion of the issues discussed in her earlier book, American Betrayal, which caused so much controversy back in 2013 by daring to question the hagiography surrounding Saint FDR.

Concerning the video below, Ms. West says:

There is something so timely about this 2013 interview with Erick Stakelbeck, an excellent interviewer, that I decided to repost it. The topic is my then-new book American Betrayal, but the conversation is all about the introduction of socialism and subversion into the US government, which soon flourished as “the Swamp.”

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for re-uploading this video:

Gavin Boby: Islam in England

Gavin Boby is an English lawyer who is best-known for his “Mosquebusters” operation, which has racked up numerous successes in preventing the construction of mosques by using legal appeals before planning commissions.

In the following series of four videos, Mr. Boby discusses the current state of England under the Islamic onslaught. I wholeheartedly agree with his basic tenet: “Things that cannot continue forever, will not continue forever.” When the change finally comes it will be dramatic and sudden, but neither he nor I is willing to predict exactly when it will happen. The situation is too stochastic to be predictable.

The Lamentable Shortcomings of Some English Judges and Senior Lawyers

What do English judges do when issues involving Islam and sharia appear in their courtrooms? Why, they remain blissfully unaware, of course, as Michael Copeland explains in his latest essay.

The Lamentable Shortcomings of Some English Judges and Senior Lawyers

by Michael Copeland

English judges have shown themselves to be lamentably lacking in knowledge of Islam. They confidently make statements which can easily be shown to be erroneous. What they express are assumptions, not grounded in scholarship. Recent cases demonstrate this assertion.

Mr. Justice Sweeney

Mr. Justice Sweeney presided over the trial in 2014 of the killers of Lee Rigby. One of them was Mujaahid Abu Hamza, formerly Michael Adebolajo, from Nigeria. He had converted to Islam and had been mentored and trained by Anjem Choudary. A diligent student of Islam, he had prepared from the Koran a list of some thirty-one Islamic scriptural authorisations and commands for the killing of non-muslims, which he handed to a passer-by after the gruesome murder.

The Koran has a very significant status: its text, all of it, forms part of Islamic law. No-one may alter any part of it: “None may change his words” (18:27). No-one may disregard any part of it. One who denies any verse instantly ceases to be a muslim and has to be killed as an apostate (Manual of Islamic Law, Reliance of the Traveller, o8.7(7)). The killing can be performed vigilante-style by anyone, and is penalty-free “since it is killing someone who deserves to die” (o8.4). Control is total: there is no room for conscientious objection.

“It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision” (K. 33:36)

The doctrines set out in the texts are neither negotiable nor optional. Muslims are not permitted to choose: they are instructed. Dr. Salah al-Sawy, the Secretary-General of the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America, issued a ruling, or fatwa, citing the above verse:

For things which have been stipulated in the texts of Islam, the Ummah [Muslim community] possesses no power except to acknowledge and obey.

The teachings of the Koran, advises imam Ahmed Saad of North London Central Mosque, “are universal and trans-time”: they are promoted as “valid from eternity to eternity”, explains Sam Solomon, former Professor of Sharia Law. Non-muslims, kafirs, are “unclean” (9:28), “the vilest of beasts” (8:22), as “apes and pigs” (5:60), “the most despicable” (98:6). They are to be regarded with “enmity and hatred forever” (60:4). “Kill them wherever you find them” commands the Koran (2:191, 9:5). Instruction after instruction in the Koran mandates violence against kafirs.

Ali Gomaa, Grand Mufti of Egypt, the highest Sunni Muslim religious authority in the world, makes the obligation clear:

Muslims must kill non-believers wherever they are unless they convert to Islam.

Lee Rigby’s killer explained to the passer-by who recorded him on a video:

We are forced by the Koran, in Sura At-Tawba…

Sura At-Tawba is Chapter Nine of the Koran. It does, indeed, at verse 5, command muslims “Kill the idolaters (“mushrikun’) wherever you find them”. “Idolaters” in Islam include Christians, because Islam holds, erroneously, that they worship the Cross. The Koran, it needs to be explained, is not arranged in chronological order. Chapter Nine is, in fact, the latest complete chapter. As such, it has a potent distinction under Islam’s doctrine of “abrogation”. It overrides and “abrogates” all the earlier peaceful verses. It is the final word.

All this was clear to Mujaahid Abu Hamza. Evidently, though, none of it was known to Judge Sweeney. Judges, in fairness, are qualified in English law. No part of their training includes Sharia law, the rules of Islam. The judge evidently shared the widely held, though erroneous, English fair play/goodwill assumption that Islam is benign, a Religion of Peace. He exposed his lack of knowledge in what he said to the defendants:

You each converted to Islam some years ago. Thereafter you were radicalised and each became an extremist — espousing a cause and views which, as has been said elsewhere, are a betrayal of Islam and of the peaceful Muslim communities who give so much to our country.

At that point the two defendants howled and shouted in protest, knowing, as they did and the judge did not, that what they had done was not a betrayal at all, but a dutiful fulfilment of Islam’s commands. They were conducted out of the court room. Of course, this enabled the media to represent them as wild and fanatical misunderstanders, thus prolonging the nation’s ignorance.

Mr. Justice Haddon-Cave

Mr. Justice Haddon-Cave presided over the trial of the young London Tube jihadi, whose bomb fortunately malfunctioned at Parsons Green Station, burning strongly but not exploding. Sentencing him, the judge said:

You’ll have plenty of time to study the Koran in prison…the Koran is a book of peace.

Robert Spencer wrote:

Has Mr Justice Haddon-Cave ever actually read the Qur’an? Almost certainly not; otherwise he wouldn’t have gone on record with this spectacularly asinine and counterfactual statement.

The Koran is no book of peace. Voltaire assessed it scathingly:

[It] teaches fear, hatred, contempt for others. Murder as a legitimate means of spreading and maintaining this devil’s doctrine. It denigrates women, divides people into classes and demands blood and more blood.

Mark Steyn: “If the alternative is surrendering our liberty over death threats, to hell with that!”

This morning Mark Steyn testified as a witness at a hearing on “online hate” held in the Canadian House of Commons by the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights. As you might expect, the occasion was one in which sanctimonious progressive pols hectored, badgered, bullied, and otherwise coerced witnesses to fall in line with Party doctrine on immigration, Multiculturalism, Islam, etc.

Mr. Steyn, however, refused to be bullied. He repaid his tormentors in kind, and threw in extra invective just for them.

He was superb. The next time I run into him I’ll say, “Steyn, you magnificent bastard! I heard your testimony.”

No video was allowed at the committee hearing (see Vlad Tepes’ post below for more on that), so the video below is audio-only, to which photographs have been added.

Before you watch it, a word on the cast of characters: Besides the witnesses, committee members are present in the hearing room. However, since I can’t see their faces, I can’t identify any of them. I assume the committee chair, Anthony Housefather, is one of those asking the questions.

Below is a list of committee members, taken from Wikipedia:

Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights

Anthony Housefather, Chair (Liberal)
Randy Boissonnault (Liberal)
Ali Ehsassi (Liberal)
Colin Fraser (Liberal)
Iqra Khalid (Liberal)
Ron McKinnon (Liberal)
Arif Virani, Parliamentary Secretary (Liberal)
Michael Cooper, Vice-Chair (Conservative)
Michael Barrett (Conservative)
David MacKenzie (Conservative)
Tracey Ramsey (New Democratic)

You can also find a list of members on the House of Commons website.

The “Mr. Garrison” mentioned in the transcript is Randall Garrison, an MP for the New Democratic Party, who for some unexplained reason was allowed to ask questions, even though he’s not a member of the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights (he sits on the Defence Committee).

The article by Mark Steyn referenced in one of the questions is “The Future Belongs to Islam”, which was published by Maclean’s on October 20, 2006.

I transcribed and timed this four-minute excerpt, and Vlad Tepes was kind enough to subtitle it:

Below is Vlad’s take on Mr. Steyn’s appearance before the Star Chamber parliamentary committee:

Short segment of parliamentary committee badgering Mark Steyn on ‘hate speech’

This morning an odious procedure took place in Canada’s increasingly Soviet-like parliamentary committee on ‘hate speech’, where three worthy witnesses, Lindsay Shepherd, John Robson, and Mark Steyn, defended freedom of speech, which is to say they are against the Trudeau government’s proposition that Section 13 of the Hate Speech Act be reinstituted into the criminal code of Canada.

A reporter from RAIR Foundation, at the hearings this morning, explained to me that had they committed an actual crime and been on trial for it, their lawyer, and quite probably the judge, would never have allowed the defendant to be treated the way these volunteer witnesses for freedom had been treated.

Before you watch the video, it may help you to understand the intentions and fairness of this committee to know two things.

1.   The Committee voted before this started not to televise the video of it. So there is only audio of it. We can only guess as to why they chose not to broadcast video, as it was a “non-debatable motion” not to broadcast to which most agreed not to broadcast, and one abstained.
2.   They passed another odd motion: not to name the New Zealand shooter and not to quote from his manifesto, even though it was irrelevant to this hearing. However it does relate to an event last week where a conservative MP used facts from the manifesto to counter a false claim, and for which he was immediately reprimanded. This second motion, as I see it, is Orwell’s last prediction. Loosely quoting: “The future is a boot on humanity’s face for pretty much all eternity”.

One Man, One Border

The mandate for a multicultural society necessitates the removal (or at least the neglect of) national borders. Since citizens are no longer protected at the national level, they must protect themselves at the individual level — creating, as it were, tiny borders around themselves by various means. Women in particular must take unusual measures to guard against rape, sexual assault, and other forms of violence perpetrated by culture enrichers.

In the following video, Vlad Tepes has compiled a useful and thought-provoking selection of these “tiny borders”:

Join the Greens and Help Destroy Europe!

The Green Party did well in most Western European countries, especially when compared with the previously dominant center-left and center-right parties. In Germany they gained 21%, second only to the CDU/CSU (28%).

Annalena Baerbock, the co-leader of the German Greens, made a little Freudian slip at the victory celebration after the election, as caught in the brief video clip below.

Jörg Meuthen on the European Parliamentary Elections

Jörg Meuthen is the federal spokesman for the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) as well as a member of the European Parliament. In the following video from RT, Mr. Meuthen is interviewed about the results of the European parliamentary elections, in which the AfD gained 11% of the vote — not as much as hoped for, but a significant improvement over the previous election.

The Tide and Some Worms Have Turned, Part 3

Seneca III has decided to extend his report on the departure of Cousin Theresa and the European parliamentary elections to include a Part 3.

The Tide and Some Worms Have Turned

Part III — After-Action Report

by Seneca III

Resignation Redux

Theresa Mary May is no longer in the running for…

First: A headline:[1]

”POLICE CELEBRATE END OF MAY: ‘HER LEGACY ONE OF MISERY’, ‘COUNTRY LESS SAFE’, ‘OFFICERS WILL SHED NO TEARS’”

The article and particularly the comments are well worth a read. Also, a redux on the redux just to level the playing field…Hopkins is still the Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police![2], as Tommy Robinson has recently learned the hard way.

Second: Both the Irish and the Dutch released their exit poll details immediately but for some reason the UK could not or did not, or at least to the public. When she made her resignation statement May could well have had them, and possibly even the result of the election itself, which would have been the final straw that broke her will to remain and she chose to pass on the poison chalice. Had they been less promising to TBP then I suspect she would have hung on even longer.

In a strange way I found that situation comforting (and I was correct — the Tories finished fifth), because if the results were bad enough from her perspective to force her to chuck in the towel, they sure as hell will be good for the country and its future. There’s a way to go yet, of course, but the results do show that things are moving in the right direction (no pun intended).

Third: Guyana-born Gina Miller[3] initiated the 2016 R (Miller) v Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union court case against the British government over its authority to implement Brexit without approval from Parliament. One has to assume that she was actually dumb enough to believe Theresa May’s oft-repeated statement “No deal is better than a bad deal”, believing that it was a statement of genuine intent, and thus Miller contrived to block a fellow Remainer from carrying out her treacherous plan by handing authority over to parliament as a whole who, of course, have managed to turn this failed exercise in reverse democracy into the stalled debacle we have before us today. Thank you, Gina, history will record you as a glorious stumblebum who managed to stab herself in the back whilst trying to stab the UK in its heart; it will be remembered as the triumph of self-serving vainglory over astute political analysis.

And thanks again for trying to destroy the sovereignty of your adopted country which welcomed you with open arms. Gratitude does indeed have a very short half-life.

Fourth: The Tory leadership battle…

…could last up to and perhaps into the Summer Recess (20th July 2017 — 5th September 2017) which means that between now and 20th July they are going to be unable to propose, debate and pass any meaningful legislation through readings in both Houses. This presents an interesting possibility which is well worth examining, but first some background.

Thursday/Friday 23rd-24th May 2019

The Dutch exit polls may indicate that that Marxism triumphs yet again.

From POLITICO[1]:

The Dutch Labor Party of Frans Timmermans, the center-left candidate for European Commission president, is the unexpected winner of the European Parliament election in the Netherlands, according to an exit poll.

The party won five out of 26 seats with more than 18 percent of the vote, doubling its result compared to the last European election in 2014.

Rutte’s People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD) rose from three seats in 2014 to four seats this time, according to the exit poll, while Baudet’s FvD enters EU politics with three seats.

Rutte congratulated Timmermans’ party. “The Labor Party has delivered an unbelievably good performance tonight,” he said. Of his own party’s result, he said the VVD has made “considerable progress.” He added: “It’s a fine result, but of course one would have preferred to be the biggest party.”

Asked whether he is happy the liberals came ahead of Baudet’s party, Rutte said it is good the Euroskeptic FvD is “not the largest.” He added: “Above all, I am very much in favor of a vision of Europe. There is still a great deal wrong with the EU, [but] in order to keep the Netherlands strong, you have to remain part of the EU, and this has, in any case, led to a profit for my party.”

FvD’s European lead candidate Derk Jan Eppink said that his party is “the biggest winner in the number of seats, we go from zero to three.” He also congratulated Timmermans on his victory.

The big loser was Geert Wilders’ far-right Freedom Party (PVV), which lost three of its four seats. The socialist-liberal Democrats 66 lost half of their votes, ending up with two seats. According to the exit poll, turnout was up: some 41.2 percent of eligible voters in the Netherlands cast a ballot, compared to 37.3 percent in 2014.

The Netherlands and the U.K. were the only EU countries to hold their part of the European Parliament election on Thursday. Official results will be released only on Sunday evening, after all 28 EU countries have voted.

[The PVV with only one seat? All is not well in the land of the Cloggies, but this raises another question: What’s going on here? Voters lying at the exit?

Whatever. Why can’t we publish the results of our exit poll in the UK but the Dutch can? Is it one rule for Europe and another for us, or Is it because the Marxist EU Presidential candidate Timmermans is purported to have won 5 of the 26 seats and the EU want to encourage more voting that way all around the Block rather than revealing our results which are highly likely to be the exact opposite.?

We shall see, but watch out, those of you in the patriotic EU countries voting on Saturday and Sunday — you are being stitched up as badly as we are.]

Friday 24th May 2019

Theresa Mary May, the Vidkun Quisling of the United Kingdom, announced at 1015 hours BST today that she is resigning as leader of the Conservative and Unionist Party on the 7th June. They must now elect a new leader.

[The election process is instigated by either the incumbent resigning or the Parliamentary Party passing a vote of no confidence. Such a vote is automatically triggered if the 1922 Committee receives demands for new leadership carrying the signatures of 15 per cent of Conservative MPs (currently 48).

The Conservative Party then uses a twofold system to select a new leader:

The Conservative Chief Whip (currently Julian Smith) receives nominations from party members.

If just one MP is nominated, they are automatically installed as party leader.

If multiple names are put forward, a ballot of Conservative MPs is held. The lowest-polling name is removed and another ballot is held. This continues on subsequent Tuesdays and Thursdays until just two nominees remain. These two nominees are then put to a ballot of the wider Conservative Party membership (150,000) with the winner becoming the new Conservative leader

Candidates will go head-to-head at hustings events around the country with their pitches to party members in the hope of winning their support.

A candidate achieving more than 50 per cent of the vote among Party members will be declared Leader of the Party.]

Analysis

May is now out of the running for:

Nevertheless, the worrying thing is that because of the convoluted nature of the Leadership election she could still be running the government for anything from two to six weeks until her replacement is elected.

She could do a lot of damage in that time, being the sort of person she is. What the country really needs is an impartial caretaker leader with only a limited mandate until the new leader is in place.
