Geert Wilders on the Corrupt Legal Case Brought Against Him

As H. Numan reported earlier this month, there have been new developments in the show trial against Geert Wilders, the leader of the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV) in the Netherlands.

Since then there have been additional reports in the media about the improper involvement of the Minister of Justice in the case. The following material has been translated from RTL Nieuws:

Senior government officials demanded a hard approach in the trial against ‘malicious’ Wilders

Top officials of the Justice Department have been involved in the content of the criminal case against Geert Wilders. They urged the Public Prosecution Service (OM) to tackle Wilders as firmly as possible in the case of ‘fewer Moroccans’ statements.

‘Scandalous’

The interference is very sensitive because it is a criminal case against an opposition leader. Until recently, the Justice department and the OM denied any form of substantive consultation and coordination on the Wilders case. The PVV leader reacts with astonishment to the new revelations and calls it ‘outrageous’.

The documents now show that officials fed the OM with arguments against Wilders, who was an opponent of the then-minister, VVD member Ivo Opstelten. They call his statements “malicious” and “racist.” When these officials read a very confidential official message from the Board of Procurators General to Minister Opstelten of 10 September 2014, one of them wondered: “Is the OM convinced of the desirability and feasibility of prosecution?”

No reason for criminal case

They advise the Public Prosecution Service to go into it legally. The reason for this is the discussion within the OM about the case. The Public Prosecutor in The Hague even wanted to dismiss the criminal case concerning the first ‘fewer Moroccans’ ruling on 12 March 2014, as it turned out last week, more than five years later. And the public prosecutor’s own experts, from the National Discrimination Expertise Center, also saw no good reason for a criminal case in the statements on the election evening of 19 March 2014. They found the statements ‘not unnecessarily offensive’.

The top officials thought that Wilders should not only be prosecuted for the election evening statements, but also had to be tackled for the first statement, because otherwise the whole ‘legally substantive’ case would not be sustainable.

“I would leave this to the judge and put as few restrictions as possible in what you submit to the judge.” The officials also provide a series of legal advice, including on how the Public Prosecutor should deal with the likely arguments of the defense. Literally: “I have already discussed a number of points with the colleague of the Pag [public prosecutor, the Public Prosecution Service, ed.] Today.” And: “I will pass on the points that you mention to the colleague of the OM.”

‘Unimaginable’

Wilders announces that he and his lawyer Geert-Jan Knoops will again ask the Court to stop the trial. The appeal will be served again on Tuesday. Wilders: “It is inconceivable that the Ministry of Justice has dealt with my case in detail. It’s a disgrace, a political reckoning by the VVD minister and his department.”

The PVV writes:

Valerie Price and Rasmus Paludan Discuss the Political Situation in Canada

Valerie Price is the founder and national director of ACT! For Canada.

Rasmus Paludan is a Danish activist who was relatively unknown until his sacrilegious treatment of a Koran got him into a spot of bother in Nørrebro back in April. The incident propelled him into political prominence, so that his party (Stram Kurs, “Hard Line”) gained 1.8% of the vote in June’s parliamentary elections.

In the following video recorded at last weekend’s retreat in Quebec, Ms. Price and Mr. Paludan discuss the current political situation in Canada, with a particular focus on next month’s elections. Despite his being the center of a series of scandals, Justin “Baby Doc” Trudeau is expected to win re-election. However, Maxime Bernier and his party, the People’s Party of Canada, are showing surprising strength in the latest polls.

Viktor Orbán Among The Christians

Rod Dreher has written an excellent account at the The American Conservative of his meeting with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán in Budapest. Below are some excerpts:

Viktor Orbán Among The Christians

by Rod Dreher

I arrived in Budapest on Friday to deliver a speech at a conference for Christian communicators from around the world. At the last minute, conference organizers alerted some of us that Prime Minister Viktor Orbán would like to meet with us privately at the end of the event. We boarded a bus and headed to Buda Castle, where he received us in a salon. I assumed it would be a quick meet-and-greet. Hardly! He spoke with us for about 90 minutes, and answered our questions frankly. Here’s a shot of the group, whose number included John O’Sullivan and Philip Blond, two names familiar to Anglo-American conservatives:

Mind you, I think I John O’Sullivan and I were the only professional journalists in the room, so this was not a press conference. I did not know that we would be offered to opportunity to speak to the PM beyond saying hello, much less that we would be able to ask questions. Therefore, I didn’t prepare for an interview, and in any case I only had the chance to put a single question.

I tell you this so you readers don’t ask me why I didn’t challenge Orbán on this or that policy of his government. I am perfectly aware that he is a controversial figure who has done things and pursued policy goals that are highly controversial for a number of reasons. However, this was a completely unexpected opportunity to be in the presence of one of the most extraordinary world leaders of our time, and to get a sense of his mind.

If the only thing you know about Viktor Orbán is from Western media accounts, you would think that he was nothing but some kind of mafia thug. The Viktor Orbán you encounter in person is very, very different from the Viktor Orbán shown to Americans by our media. In Orbán — who speaks good English — was energetic, fiercely intelligent, funny, self-deprecating, realistic, and at times almost pugilistic in talking about defending Hungary and her interests. Orbán is what Trump’s biggest fans wish he was (but isn’t), and what Trump’s enemies think him to be (but isn’t). If Donald Trump had the smarts and skills of Viktor Orbán, the political situation in the US would be much, much different — for better or for worse, depending on your point of view.

Orbán begin our session with extended remarks about Hungarian and European politics, and the role of his Fidesz Party in them. He said that when he was elected in 2010, he had one mission: to save Hungary from economic ruin. By the time Orbán’s 2014 re-election bid rolled around, the economy was stable, and he described the mission of his second terms as “to say what I think.”

“I realized in 2014 that I was the only free man among the prime ministers of Europe,” he said, explaining that by “free,” he meant that he had a strong, united parliamentary majority behind him. He added, “In Western political life now, you can’t say what you think.”

When the migration crisis hit Europe in 2015, Orbán famously shut Hungary’s borders to Middle Easterners. Orbán said that Hungary’s was the only government in Europe to respond to the crisis in its own interests, and in the interests of Christianity in Europe. With a population of only 10 million, and as a country where Christianity, as elsewhere on the continent, is fragile, the Hungarians concluded that allowing large numbers of Muslims to take up residence here would mean the death knell of Christianity in time.

This scandalized the European political class. Orbán doesn’t care. He told our group that he understands that he is dealing with elites who believe that being a post-Christian, post-national civilization is a great and glorious thing. Orbán rejects this. He said the main political question in the West today is how fractious pluralities can live together peaceably. He said, “Here the most important question is how not to have the same questions as them.”

Napalming Western Culture

The three videos below seem to me to be related, even though Miss Piggy discovered them seriatim and translated them separately. Taken together, they provide a disturbing gestalt of the political and cultural nightmare that has engulfed Modern Multicultural Germany.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.

#1 Islamization

Ralf Stegner is the current leader of the SPD (Social Democrats) in Schleswig-Holstein. The following brief video shows remarks made by Mr. Stegner at the SPD regional conference (a sort of town hall meeting for SPD members, who were permitted to ask questions) in Saarland on September 5. He is a candidate for the leadership of the SPD, along with the woman sitting next to him, Gesine Schwann.

#2 Napalm

The second video features remarks by a German vlogger about a young comedienne who displays the typical attitude held by affluent and well-educated Wessis (West Germans) towards Ossis, citizens of the former DDR. The latter region is sometimes referred to as “Dunkeldeutschland”, or “Dark Germany”. Ossis are more likely to be nationalists and religious Christians than their enlightened brethren in the West, which is why they are often treated as objects of contempt by the bien-pensants.

#3 Kill the Christians

The final video draws together the threads in #1 and #2. It shows a cell phone video recorded by a teenage girl in a high school in Halle, in which you can hear a Muslim immigrant acknowledge that it is his duty to kill Christians.

This provides a glimpse of who — after the successful Islamization of German communities — will deploy the cultural napalm against the benighted nationalists and Christians of Dunkeldeutschland.

The article below (also translated by MissPiggy) from Politikstube accompanies Video #3:

Halle: Muslim wants to slaughter girl (17) because she is a Christian

A 17-year-old girl from Halle, Germany posts her story on Facebook and gets mobbed by “good” people for just telling the story:

Linda from Halle: I deal with these guys every day. I live in Halle, in a bad neighbourhood, although the area is actually very nice, with many trees. But all you hear is: “A Syrian stabbed someone, the wife of an Afghani was robbed, young children threaten smaller children with knives, or refugee stabs German man.”

Two years ago, at the age of 15, I was almost raped. I have already been spit on, kicked, pushed against the elevator, in my own building. I live in a tower block. My dogs have been spit on and kicked when I wasn’t looking.

Two weeks ago I was sitting in the tram, and a foreigner was standing next to me, pressing his thing against me constantly. The first time I thought to myself, OK, he did it accidentally maybe, but he did it three more times. Then, of course, I told him my opinion.

Here’s the saddest thing: I published a video about it and what kind of reaction did I get? “You’ve started a smear campaign”, “It’s disgusting how you just lump them all together”, “JUST because you’ve had a bad encounter ONCE doesn’t mean every foreigner is like that.”

Despite having clearly stated my point of view in my post, most of the people who commented just twisted my words any which way they wanted.

Border Guards From Génération Identitaire Get Six Months in Jail

Last year, to prove a point, a group of people from the French nationalist organization Génération Identitaire set up a cordon on the border between France and Italy, in the Maritime Alps where “refugees” were wont to enter France illegally. Now three leaders of the Identitaires have been sentenced to six months in jail for the action.

Here’s a report from Voice of Europe (hat tip Reader from Chicago) about the sentencing of the Identitaires:

French Identitarians Slapped With Six Months in Jail for Alpine Expedition

A court in southeastern France handed three leading figures of Generation Identity (GI), a right-wing youth organization, to six months in jail for engaging in a peaceful expedition in the Alps designed to bring attention to the migrant crisis.

The three right-wing activists were charged with “exercising activities in conditions that could create confusion with a public function” — a charge that surely does not warrant six months in jail.

Although prosecutors allege that the group’s stunt could have been misjudged as a police maneuver, it’s quite clear that charges are entirely politically motivated, and are meant only to inflict damage upon the growing movement.

Culture Wars International: EU There and Democrats Here

Culture Wars International: EU there and Democrats here

by SF

The following essay is pretty inflammatory; but as we have all seen, acting in a nice, civilized, restrained, and decent manner towards a Hitler or a Stalin, and never saying out loud what is actually going on, only leads more quickly to our own doom.

The EU and America’s Democrats are two sides of the same coin.

Political correctness / culture wars / political Marxism began in Europe. Initially, it was a not unreasonable response to the powerful people (the aristocrats and tycoons) using their power to reward their friends, while keeping “the little guy” from being able to advance and earn a decent living. In Eastern Europe it developed as violent Communism. But Western Europe was different, in that it consisted of many individual, highly developed, independent nations. In each of these nations the struggle was between Conservatism and democratic Socialism. Both were nationalistic. But then Hitler brought things to a head by using Conservative Racist Nationalism to try to dominate the world.

World War Two brought about a Darwinian change in Europe. The most aggressive and militaristic Europeans died in the fighting. The survivors were the ones who were the most wimpy and pacifistic. They were determined to bring about a socialist utopia. Their first goal was to ensure that any Hitler wannabes could never again gain power. So they began a never-ending struggle against nationalism, militarism, capitalism, Christianity, and “white supremacism”. As a counterweight to Christianity, they promoted Islam as “the religion of peace”, especially because most of its adherents were non-white. To do this they had to delude themselves about the true nature of Islam, but they did it happily. Pretty soon they invited Muslims from nearby lands to emigrate to Europe, so that they could dilute the remaining native white conservatives, and they even subsidized the Muslims with welfare payments to make it easier and more attractive to them.

And so we end up with today’s situation in Europe: hordes of unassimilated, Christian-hating Muslims living in no-go zones, most receiving welfare, and committing crimes in the name of Jihad (terrorism, rape, etc.) while the “progressive” governments make excuse after excuse for them (they are unfamiliar with our culture, they are not practicing “real Islam”, they bring more benefits than losses, etc., ad nauseam). And naturally, if you are crazy enough to point out how insane this all is, they will inevitably ruin your life (shades of Stalin).

Jörg Meuthen: Change is Coming From Eastern Germany

Alice Weidel Confronts the Lügenpresse

The AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) scored major victories yesterday in local elections in two German states, Brandenburg and Saxony. The success of the party was not due to its surpassing the two traditionally dominant parties (the CDU and the SPD), but to its increase in voter support at the expense of those parties (see the graph at the top of this post to get an idea of the dynamic in Saxony).

The fact that the AfD could post these sorts of gains in the face of massive state propaganda, the hostility of the Lügenpresse (“lying press”), and being blatantly labeled as “Nazis” is evidence of the political shift that is currently underway in Germany. In a consensus culture such as that of the Bundesrepublik, the results are nothing short of astonishing.

In the following video Alice Weidel, the co-leader of the AfD, discusses these results with a hostile interviewer from German mainstream media. Ms. Weidel acquits herself with aplomb, and retaliates against her interviewer at least as strongly as he tries to sabotage her.

Traitors, Mobs, Demagogues and Useful Idiots

Seneca III sends his latest essay from the royal throne of kings, the sceptred isle, the precious stone set in the silver sea — the soon-to-be-Brexited Britain.

Traitors, Mobs, Demagogues and Useful Idiots

by Seneca III

Since prorogation[1] was first mooted I’ve been trying to recall historic parallels with our current situation. Initially, as always, my mind swung back to the last days of the Roman Imperium — mainly, I think, because of the hallmark debauchery which came from moral and cultural decadence and which in turn gave birth to the same dangerous, unsavoury horde of false prophets, deviants, idiots and violent rabble that descend upon us now.

Both then and now cases of feverish mass derangement bereft of any logical foundations arose amongst peoples; all were aided and abetted by corrupt and power-hungry political demagogues. Both the Imperium and the UK were and are plagued with predatory alien tribes sinking their barbarian fangs into the body politic. In both, febrile mobs violent in act and rhetoric were and are on the streets daily and the descent into chaos accelerated. As Rome sank, so we are doing, but in this IT age much faster than in the past.


Blocking traffic by playing ‘Ring-a-Ring-a-Roses in the middle of the road — I kid you not!


And Caroline Russell, a rather chubby member of the London Assembly representing the left-liberal Green Party, decided to give the Police a mouthful when politely asked to move along.


And was promptly arrested.

But with this knowledge of how things happen, how civilisations collapse, we do not need to follow Rome’s course into oblivion. We, the original indigenous masses, must regain our sovereignty, our right to determine our own future, to retake our lands for ourselves and ourselves only, to govern according to our ways. And we must ensure that the proto-tyrants of the Left and the EU Marxist-Globalist Theocracy together with their seventh-century foot soldiers never succeed in ethnically cleansing and subjugating us.

As it was at Waterloo and the Battle of Britain, this battle is ours to win or lose. With 59 days left going down to the wire it will be a damn close-run thing, so from those times past I offer two quotations.

On the night before Waterloo the Duke of Wellington and one of his aides rode through the lines of his soldiery who, to a man, were drawn from the commonalty and often referred to as the dregs of society or the criminal scum of Britain. They were eating, drinking and brawling around their campfires, apparently without a care in the world. Wellington is reputed to have turned to his aide and said, “I don’t know what effect these men will have on the enemy, but by God, they terrify me.”

A hundred and twenty-five years later after the Battle of Britain Churchill addressed a weary, bomb-damaged, wounded nation with these words:

Brazil’s Bolsonaro Beats Macron (And the Globalist Media)

Below is a follow-up by José Atento of Lei Islâmica em Ação to our earlier report on the Amazon fires and the interference by the G7.

Brazil’s Bolsonaro beats Macron (and the globalist media)

by José Atento

You probably have heard the fires in the Amazon region described as a great tragedy that is only occurring because of the “deplorable” government of Brazil, under President Jair Bolsonaro, and how the forest is doomed, and the planet’s oxygen is about to run out, global warming will peak to unprecedented levels, etc.

In reality, what happened was a large operation orchestrated by the globalist media with three objectives:

1.   Destabilize the Bolsonaro government and destroy the recently-signed commercial agreement between the European Union and Mercosul.

Why was Macron so adamant against Brazil, even asking for a boycott and the cancellation of this agreement? Because Macron is afraid of the power of Brazilian agro-business and how it will affect his already precarious situation with the French public, particularly, with its rural population.

The problem is that it becomes very difficult to use lies in the age of Internet. Macron used false data and old pictures, which have been readily debunked.

2.   Create a situation that supports the call for international intervention, beginning with the Amazon Synod currently being organized by Pope Francis.

One cannot dismiss the influence that the Catholic Church still has, particularly in a majority Catholic country like Brazil. And we know Pope Francis is more interested in the environment than in Christians who are being slaughtered by Islam, Communism and narco-trafficking. Such intervention would be consolidated by the more than one thousand international NGOs that have operated in the Amazon for a long time, with the support of the former Brazilian socialist government, and have received international donations from the Amazon Fund.

3.   Based on this “environmental catastrophe”, put a portion of Brazilian territory under international rule. This would be accomplished by the creation of the Triple-A Corridor, connecting the Andes, the Amazon and the Atlantic, governed by indigenous nations under the control of international NGOs and big global financiers. All natural resources (including 90% of the world’s niobium reserves) would be under international control. (Who said the Globalist-Left alliance is against colonialism and imperialism?)
 

The lies were magnified to the maximum and barely dismissed afterwards. For example, the lie that the city of São Paulo was darkened by smoke from the Amazon. The media directly blamed Bolsonaro for the fires in the Amazon, hiding the fact that this is seasonal, and this year has been far from the worst.

“Sovereignty Belongs to the People”

Matteo Salvini has resigned as Interior Minister of Italy, and a new government will be formed, a coalition between the populist 5-Star Movement (M5S) and the leftist Partito Democratico (PD).

Mr. Salvini initiated the current political crisis by calling for a no-confidence vote in the government in which he served, the coalition between the Lega (his party) and the M5S. Either he miscalculated, thinking that his move would result in new elections (which the Lega would almost certainly win), or he was making a strategic move, expecting a landslide for his party in a future election.

The former seems the most likely explanation. His reactions since the M5S and the PD came to terms seem those of a man who was both surprised and dismayed by what happened. However, that may have simply been theater on his part — the outcome may be exactly what he had been expecting all along.

There’s no doubt that he’s right about the influence of Brussels in the formation of the M5S-PD coalition. The mandarins of the EU may not have created the coalition, but I’m certain that they lobbied for it.

The new government will be staffed by a set of unlikely bedfellows. To put it in an American context: it’s as if Ron Paul and Bernie Sanders had formed a working alliance. The new cabinet will be as unstable as an atom of francium-223.

The two videos below show the reactions of Matteo Salvini and Giorgia Meloni (leader of the Fratelli d’Italia, and a natural ally of the Lega). Many thanks to FouseSquawk for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.

Viktor Orbán’s message to Matteo Salvini: regardless of political developments, we look upon you as a brother-in-arms

August 29, 2019

At noon on Thursday Bertalan Havasi, the Prime Minister’s press chief, informed the Hungarian news agency MTI that Prime Minister and President of Fidesz Viktor Orbán has written a letter to Matteo Salvini — the leader of the Italian party Lega, and until today a member of Italy’s government. In his letter Mr. Orbán expressed his appreciation and gratitude for the work recently done by Mr. Salvini for Italy and the whole of Europe, including Hungary. Mr. Orbán wrote, “I wish to assure you that we Hungarians will never forget that you were the first Western European leader who sought to stop the influx of illegal migrants into Europe across the Mediterranean.”

In his letter to Mr. Salvini, the Hungarian prime minister continued: “Regardless of internal political developments in Italy and the fact that we belong to different European party families, we look upon you as a brother-in-arms in our battles for the preservation of European Christian heritage and the halting of migration. I wish you much success and good health in carrying out your future tasks.”

The Murder in Chemnitz, One Year Later

Cast your mind back to the events of twelve months ago in the East German city of Chemnitz (or, if you’re not a long-time reader, see this post). A man named Daniel Hillig was murdered by a Syrian culture-enricher on the streets of Chemnitz. The killer was only recently convicted and sentenced to nine and a half years in prison, as reported in suitably pixelated TV newscasts.

The murder of Mr. Hillig caused outrage in Chemnitz, and sparked a series of angry spontaneous demonstrations. A leftist website used a brief snip of video to spin a fabricated tale about “right-wing extremists” hunting down immigrants on the streets of Chemnitz.

At the time of the incident Hans-Georg Maaßen was the head of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz, BfV), the German intelligence service. The BfV was in a position to know that no such “manhunt” had occurred, and Mr. Maaßen said as much in a press conference. For sinning against The Narrative on Chemnitz, he was forced out of his position.

Opponents of mass migration staged a demonstration in Chemnitz on the first anniversary of the murder of Daniel Hillig. The two videos below report on what happened that day in Chemnitz. Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.

The first video contains The Narrative on Chemnitz as presented by the German MSM:

The Bolsonaro Government Flips the Bird at Emmanuel Macron

Because the Brazilian people elected a populist president rather than a leftist or a globalist, the international community has decided to raise the alarm about fires in the vicinity of the Amazon rainforest, even though the fires are well within the normal range for the season. Fiercer and more extensive fires are currently burning in the African tropics, but the countries involved have not sinned against the New World Order, so there is no alarmed campaign about them in the media.

At the recent G7 meeting in France, President Emmanuel “Toy Boy” Macron led the way in proposing an aid package to manipulate help Brazil during the wildfire “crisis”. In response, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and his ministers were forthright in directing their tongue-lashings towards Mr. Macron and other members of the G7.

Many thanks to José Atento of Lei Islâmica em Ação for translating this post from the blog at Globo.com:

Onyx says government will reject G7 financial aid announced by Macron

The French president stated that group will send 20 million euros to combat fires. ‘Perhaps these resources are more relevant to reforest Europe,’ replied the minister.

by Gerson Camarotti and Mateus Rodrigues
August 26, 2019

The Minister of the House, Onyx Lorenzoni, told the blog that the government will reject the aid of the G7 to combat the fires in the Amazon, which was announced on Monday (August 26) by French President Emmanuel Macron. The office of the Planalto Palace confirmed the information given by Onyx.

The aid was announced in France after Macron attended a G7 meeting. According to him, the group decided to allocate €20 million to combat the fire [later, the French government corrected itself and reported that it was $20 million].

The French President and President Jair Bolsonaro have been publicly criticizing each other since last week.

“Thanks, but perhaps these resources are more relevant to reforesting Europe. Can Macron not even prevent a predictable fire in a church that is a World Heritage Site, yet wants to teach something to our country? He has a lot to look after at home and in the French colonies,” Onyx told the blog.

“Brazil is a democratic, free nation, and has never engaged in colonialist and imperialist practices, as is perhaps the objective of the French Macron. Incidentally, coincidentally, with high domestic rejection rates,” added the minister of the Civil House.

Onyx Lorenzoni also said to the blog that Brazil can teach “any nation” how to protect native forests. “By the way, there is no country that has a larger native coverage than ours,” he added.

MRE speaks of ‘redundant initiatives’

By means of a note, the Ministry of Foreign Relations (MRE) reported that despite the “supposed launch of new initiatives related to the Amazon” to reforest the region, there are already instruments provided for this type of measure.

According to the note, the actions are foreseen in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and already include, for example, the payment by developed countries like France of US $30 billion for the reduction in Brazil of greenhouse gas emissions.

“France — and other countries that may support its ideas — are expected to engage seriously in these discussions within the UNFCCC, rather than launching redundant initiatives, with amounts well below their international commitments, and with ambiguous innuendo about the principle of national sovereignty,” states the MRE.
