Brigitte Barèges: “Mass Immigration Has to be Ended”

The following video is an excerpt from President Emmanuel Macron’s much-ballyhooed “national debate” that he convened to try to defuse the anger expressed as the Yellow Vest movement.

Brigitte Barèges is the mayor of Montauban in southern France. In this clip Ms. Barèges, addressing President Macron, expresses her doubleplus ungood opinions about French immigration policy and the negative aspects of cultural enrichment in France.

Pipeline to Disaster

Last Friday a gasoline pipeline in central Mexico exploded, creating a huge fireball. The official death toll keeps rising; as of this writing it is listed as 91. Dozens more people were injured.

The blast was caused by the illegal tapping of the pipeline by fuel thieves, who are known in Mexico as huachicoleros. The practice is a common one, and this is not the first such explosion, simply the deadliest.

As I read the earliest reports about the explosion, a question occurred to me: We have gasoline pipelines in the USA — why don’t things like this happen here? I’m certain there are plenty of unscrupulous down-on-their luck rural entrepreneurs who would consider pipeline-tapping as a career, but they don’t seem to take it up (or not in enough numbers to draw media attention, anyway).

Before examining this larger question, let’s consider some of the details about Friday’s explosion and the practice of pipeline theft in Mexico.

I’ve been reading a lot of articles since the story broke, but didn’t hang on to most of the URLs, so much of what I write here will be unsourced. However, this article from MSN is information-rich, and will serve as a good start for those who want to look into the incident. For further details, do an Internet search on “Tlahuelilpan pipeline explosion” — that will turn up plenty of stories.

The petroleum industry in Mexico is state-run, and the company that manages the pipelines is called PEMEX. The gasoline pipeline along which the explosion occurred runs from Tuxpan on the Gulf coast to Mexico City, making a hard left at Tlahuelilpan in Hidalgo State before continuing to the capital.

The pipeline had been tapped previously more than once at the location in Tlahuelilpan. Whenever that kind of thing happens, PEMEX rigs a patch over the breach and continues pumping. Such patches are easier to tap than an unmarred pipe, so the same spots tend to be used over and over again.

The normal practice is to make a fairly small hole so that the flow of gasoline is not excessive and can be readily utilized. However, on the afternoon before the explosion, one of the fuel thieves became impatient and jammed a piece of rebar into the hole to enlarge it, causing a veritable gusher to spout up twenty feet into the air. In videos of the festive occasion the gasoline plume looks like Old Faithful.

Hundreds of people swarmed the site, carrying large plastic containers to collect the gasoline from the ditch around the pipe. It was not the most intelligent thing to do — the air in the immediate vicinity of the geyser was a dense mass of gasoline vapor, awaiting only a tiny spark to trigger a conflagration.

Which is exactly what happened later that evening. Some reports theorize that the synthetic fabric of the clothes worn by the poor people tapping the pipe generated enough static electricity to create the necessary spark. In any case, without any warning a tremendous fireball exploded over and among the crowd.

The moment of the explosion was captured by someone who had been using an infrared-sensitive video camera to record the night’s festivities. Then, in full living color, you can watch the huge plume of smoke and orange flames rise into the night sky while subsidiary fires spread rapidly at ground level. There appear to be little fireballs rushing away from the center of the blast, but when you look closely, you’ll find that they’re people running away from the explosion. Their clothes, arms, legs, and torsos are engulfed in flame. You can also see people try to extinguish some of the human torches that have collapsed onto the ground. (No, I’m not going to embed the video here; it’s too graphic. But you can find it easily with a YouTube search. And those videos are just the ones that YouTube didn’t pull down — imagine what the others must be like.)

The gasoline vapor was so thick before the explosion that some people passed out, overcome by the fumes. One report says a nearby soldier pulled an unconscious man out of the gasoline-filled ditch and dragged him to safety. Some of the survivors reported that they realized the danger of explosion and hurried out of the area before it was too late.

Such was the Tlahuelilpan pipeline explosion on January 18, 2019. Photos from the following morning show the scorched pipeline and nearby field, with neatly-arranged rows of bodies covered by white sheets.

Illegal pipeline-tapping in Mexico has become a growth industry over the past decade. PEMEX’s pipes are laid shallowly, so that digging down two or three feet will expose the pipe. Local entrepreneurs make the tap, with the support of nearby residents who participate in the collection and sale of illicit gasoline.

The graph below uses data from a useful paper (PDF) published by the Baker Institute for Public Policy at Rice University in 2017. I found the total number of taps for 2017, but the statistics for 2018 are only available through October. In the latter case I extrapolated the total for 12 months and then appended the numbers for both years to the data set to produce this graphic:

Red-Pilled Austrian Politicians

The two videos below contain “xenophobic” sentiments that used to be confined to the fringes in countries west of the Iron Curtain (although they have long been standard fare in the East Bloc).

The situation in Austria seems to have changed. The politicians in the videos below express similar sentiments about the violent criminality of culture-enrichers. One of them is even serving in the current governing coalition. And both of them uttered their WAYCIST statements on national television.

Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.

The first video features Karoline Edtstadler, an Austrian politician for the ÖVP (Österreichische Volkspartei, Austrian People’s Party). She currently serves as State Secretary in the Ministry of the Interior:

Gerald Grosz is a former politician for the BZÖ (Alliance for the Future of Austria, Bündnis Zukunft Österreich), which splintered from the FPÖ about fifteen years ago, and served in a governing coalition with the ÖVP.

In the second clip Mr. Grosz decries what he calls the “caravan of violence” that has been brought to Europe with the wave of mass migration:

End of Days? — Part II: An Update

In a follow-up to Thursday’s post, Seneca III provides a more detailed account of Cousin Theresa and the catastrophic failure of her Brexit deal.

End of Days? — Part II: An Update

by Seneca III

To recap: The voting down of May’s Brexit ‘Deal’ (the Withdrawal Agreement) was not meant to carry out the will of the British people as determined by the Referendum, but rather the first step in a convoluted process to use amendments and contra-constitutional machinations designed to bring about a set of conditions whereby departure would be interminably delayed until we would be forced to remain shackled to and still funding the crumbling EU by default.

Summary: Today is Day Two since Theresa Mary May and her spavined government managed to survive a vote of no confidence by a narrow margin because the thought of a Jeremy Corbyn administration run by a Marxist cabal of Venezuela-style apparatchiks was too much even for the most ardent Remainer to contemplate… and little has changed.

In many ways this scenario is best illustrated by The Daily Telegraph, once known as ‘The Tory Party at Prayer’. It, like its readership in the comments section, has sunk into a morass of internecine, bipartisan uncertainty where so many of the comments demonstrate a level of ad hominem sniping that is depressing to behold — a reflection, perhaps, of this divided country at large. On the 16th January it led with an article exposing the underhanded duplicity of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, one Phillip Anthony Hammond (another Oxford PPI graduate) in which it reported (mostly behind a paywall[1]) that:

Philip Hammond [together with Clark (Business Sec) and Barklay (Brexit Sec) I would add], told business leaders that the “threat” of a no-deal Brexit could be taken “off the table” within days and potentially lead to Article 50 “rescinded”, a leaked recording of a conference call reveals.

The Chancellor set out how a backbench Bill could effectively be used to stop any prospect of no deal. He suggested that ministers may even back the plan when asked for an “assurance” by the head of Tesco that the Government would not oppose the motion.

He claimed next week’s Bill, which could force the Government to extend Article 50, was likely to win support and act as the “ultimate backstop” against a no-deal Brexit, as a “large majority in the Commons is opposed to no deal.”

Hereunder a list of known participating CEO’s:

1.   Jurgen Maier, Siemens UK
2.   Doug Gurr, Amazon UK
3.   Keith Anderson, Scottish Power
4.   John Allan, Pres of Tesco and Pres of the CBI
5.   Peter Mather, BP UK
6.   Leo Quinn, Balfour Beatty
7.   Richard Pennycook, British Retail Consortium
8.   Paula Vennells, CEO of Post Office and director of Morrisons
9.   Caroline Fairborn, CBI
10.   Vivienne Hunt, McKinsey & Co.
11.   Simon Blagden, Fujitsu UK
 

[It is worth noting that In January 2018, senior Conservative MPs mounted pressure on Theresa May to sack Hammond as Chancellor following his recent comments about Brexit, which were deemed too Europhilic in nature. He remains in office, so the Witch of Westminster must obviously hold him in some sort of affection — or complicity. It looks as if Hammond, May & Co. do as all crooks and fraudsters do. All have something on each other, so they must live by the code of “If I go down, so will you.” It is mutual blackmail that holds the gang together…self-survival.]

However, Hammond, Clark and Barclay are not alone in the government’s attempt to thwart the will of the people. Again, in the Telegraph on the 17th more revelations of the treason embedded in the heart of Westminster surfaced[2]:

The Knife — The Underestimated Threat

A knife attack can quickly end in death; many are not aware of that

by Köksal Baltaci
January 15, 2019

VIENNA: It is cheap, easy to get, easy to hide — and as a weapon can quickly become life-threatening. Even though reports of attacks resulting in death or severe injury are commonplace, the danger caused by knives is still widely underestimated.

“Anyone who brandishes a knife at a police officer will inevitably face a firearm,” says a spokesperson for the Vienna police. Police officers are well aware of the danger of knife attacks, and that therefore the only appropriate response to such an attack is to “draw and use the gun.”

And, in fact, not just when the attacker is directly in front of the officer, but also at a distance of, for instance, ten meters. Because, unlike the opponent, the officer cannot know when the attack may come.

A training video that may also be found on diverse internet sites demonstrates how quickly such a situation can escalate. A policeman who does not take seriously a man who is armed with a knife standing around seven meters away is attacked and killed by him. The attack takes just a few seconds, and the policeman has no chance to draw his weapon and defend himself.

Of course, most people would not be able to use a knife as well as they think they can, but, says the spokesperson, “If the attacker is practiced in the use of a knife, a civilian has no chance — even at a distance of ten meters.” This is also true of comparable stabbing weapons — for instance, screwdrivers. It is different for civilians than for the police — there is no real understanding of what a knife can do. “Most people are not acquainted with the pictures and videos that we police get. And so they have no idea of what serious injuries knives can inflict.”

Emphasis on Education

Among the most significant focal points in the training and advanced training of police officers, as well as in deployment training, is the proper reaction to knife attacks. Because the number of people who carry knives has risen markedly, it is far more common now to reach for a knife than it was before. Carrying a knife has even become standard practice in some segments of the population — to be sure, not always with the intention of using it; but it would be used in “exceptional situations.”

Islamic Terrorist Arrested in Spain Didn’t Even Pray

The video below features interviews with friends and neighbors of a “Spanish” terrorist who was arrested on Tuesday as part of a series of raids in Catalonia. According to those who knew him, the suspect wasn’t devout. He didn’t pray; he didn’t visit the mosque; he smoked hashish. How could he possibly be a terrorist?

End of Days?

Yesterday the House of Commons voted on Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal, and overwhelmingly rejected it. What will happen next is not yet clear.

Our English correspondent Seneca III has some thoughts on the subject.

End of Days?

by Seneca III

And so, they are doing it, and are taking the first steps to herd We the People of the UK down the road to perdition. There is no surprise here, because this parliament is the most wretched collection of mendacious self-servers, unconvicted criminals, freeloaders, sexual deviants and morally destitute poseurs assembled in the Palace of Westminster since 1653, and it is no longer material which way or how they vote, abstain, waffle, equivocate, and delay.

For over two years, month after month, day after day they have stood and pontificated, wallowing righteously in a sea of vacuous platitudes and imagined threats whilst dragging the House and the nation into a Slough of Despond deeper than Bunyan himself could have imagined. Most of them cannot even deliver a coherent speech without the use of written texts, and even then the result of their verbal incontinence is painful to the eye and ear of those who have steeled themselves to watch and listen.

History will record them as unfit for any purpose other than their own enrichment and the survival of themselves and their comrades in the Globalist International; they are totally without virtue and ridden with vice — my old dog has more integrity and loyalty than they, even though he also is an inveterate bum sniffer and leg lifter who urinates on everything contrary to his own world view.

Indeed, few of this sordid clan could lie straight on the Rack, never mind present as anything resembling pillars of rectitude. Betrayal is their watchword, and the adulation of their acolytes and (EU) paymasters their bread of life. Moreover, as May & Co signed us up to the UN Migration Pact, then this whole Brexit debacle, however it turns out, will be of no long-term consequence, as global Muslim psychopaths together with feral sub-Saharan primitives will soon flood in to try to finish us off once and for all.

It is now glaringly obvious that We the People are of no consequence to those we have elected to represent us, simply irritants to be ignored after each election day. Thus those who govern are no longer of consequence to us, either, so let us be done with the lot of them and start again no matter how difficult and painful that may be. It will be because there is no solution left to us via the ballot box, and the final resolution will have to be found in the fog and perhaps violent turmoil of their passing.

RIP British parliamentary democracy. In a fit of collective greed and madness it suicided in January 2019. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust it will be, because that is all it became fit for in the end, and a re-set is what we must now initiate.

In closing, I offer us all a gentle allegory from: The Sunlight on the Garden by Louis MacNeice, first and last stanzas. Make what you will of it, for the future must now belong to you. But first you must seize it.

Katie Hopkins vs. YLE in Finland

Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff and Katie Hopkins have recently been in Finland to report on the growing presence of “grooming gangs” — more accurately, traffickers in child sex slaves — among culture-enriching “Finns”. Katie & the Wolff have been paying special attention to Oulu, a city in northern Finland that is now known as “the rape capital of Finland”.

Yesterday, after they met with Laura Huhtasaari of the Finns Party, Ms. Hopkins was once again interviewed by a journalist for the state broadcaster YLE. When asked tendentious questions, Ms. Hopkins — with her trademark English-bulldog style — insisted that the interviewer deal with the topic at hand on her own terms, and not those of the PC state media.

Many thanks to KGS for recording and uploading this video. Knowing YLE, this is the only version of the interview that will ever see the light of day. The audio track is quite low, but if you turn the volume up you should be able to hear just about all of it:

Beatrix Von Storch: “We Want to Advocate for Our Own National Interests”

Beatrix von Storch is the deputy leader of AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) and a member of the Bundestag for. She possesses a formidable intellect, and has been instrumental in devising the AfD’s political and economic policies.

In the following video from a panel discussion on German state TV, Ms. Von Storch discusses the implications of Brexit for Germany and the rest of the European Union. She calls for the return of national sovereignty, and even floats the idea of “Dexit” — the departure of Germany from the EU.

Poland’s Breivik Moment?

On Sunday, while he was onstage at a charity event, the mayor of Gdańsk was stabbed, and later died. Green Infidel, who translated a video of the incident, describes what happened:

On Sunday January 13 the mayor of the northern Polish city of Gdańsk (known for being the home of the Solidarity movement), Paweł Adamowicz, was stabbed on stage while live on TV in a large-scale nationwide annual charity concert. The knifeman somehow made his way on to the stage at the same time as the mayor was present (apparently the assailant managed to obtain a press pass). He proceeded to knife the mayor, then took time to walk around the stage with his arms raised, and even addressed the crowd to say he had “just killed” the mayor, before finally he was tackled to the ground.

The wounds suffered by the mayor were serious — apparently he was stabbed close to the heart, and on Monday afternoon (January 14), after many hours fighting for his life in hospital, he was pronounced dead.

The video below captures the surreal moment of the knifing (at 0:17, the knifeman runs from left to right on the stage, presumably to stab Mr Adamowicz, before running back and then standing on the stage with his arms raised in the air, before addressing the crowd, which was totally oblivious to what had just happened).

It’s hard to see what happens onstage in the video — even the audience is unaware of the attack until well after it happens.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Here’s a BBC article about the attack.

The big question now is what sort of ripples the tragic incident will cause in Polish politics. Green Infidel adds this further analysis:

Paweł Adamowicz, the mayor of Gdańsk for more than twenty years, and the recipient of numerous “mayor of the year” awards, was known for being a big fan of accepting “refugees” and promoting Multiculturalism, and was a strong opponent of the governing Law and Justice Party.

There’s nothing to suggest this was the motive — the knifeman on the stage, known only as Stefan W., said he was “unfairly imprisoned by the former Civic Platform government. This is why Adamowicz has just now been killed.” He was apparently released from prison around a month ago, after a five-year sentence for armed robberies of two banks, and had also received psychiatric treatment.

Nonetheless, as Adamowicz was such a big opponent of the Law and Justice party, this is bound to have repercussions. Fingers are already being pointed at the Right for fomenting a “climate of hate”, especially Polish state TV, TVP, which had run many news segments attacking Adamowicz. Also, this happened at the “Great Orchestra of Christmas help”, a charity event which raises money for equipment for causes such as children’s’ hospitals, but which is organised and promoted by prominent leftists, and attacked by many on the Right as being hostile to Christian values (the head of the campaign, Jerzy Owsiak, has given statements supporting euthanasia and abortion rights, and runs Woodstock, an annual hippie-style concert in Poland).

As such, this may well be a significant moment in Poland, especially during an election year…

Now we’ll just wait and see what happens. Green Infidel will keep us informed.
