French Communist, 1992: Politicians will tell you they can do nothing, because the EU orders come from Brussels

The Treaty of Maastricht in 1992 was the biggest single step in the gradual formation of the European Union. Before it came the Treaty of Rome and various other treaties that created the European Coal and Steel Community, the European Economic Community, and the European Community. Maastricht marked the beginning of the European Union, which reached its final form with the implementation of the Lisbon Treaty in 2009.

The video below is from an interview with Francis Wurtz, a French communist who served in the European Parliament from 1979 to 2009. It was recorded in 1992, before the treaty was signed. He said, “If Maastricht passes, I tell you that there will be a social explosion when people realize what kind of trap they have been led into.” That and his other predictions were exactly right; he could see what was coming.

In Budapest, the Muezzin Yodels for Guy Verhofstadt

Guy Verhofstadt is the leader of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE), an allegedly “centrist” group in the European Parliament. Our Hungarian correspondent László files this report on Mr. Verhofstadt’s visit to Budapest to campaign for the election.

Guy Verhofstadt visits Budapest

by László

The independent right-wing media outlet Vadhajtások trolled Guy Verhofstadt’s public programme in Budapest today. Worth every minute.

Verhofstadt, nicknamed the “Tooth Fairy” in Hungary, is in Budapest today to support the EU election campaign of the Hungarian Momentum party, which is a member of Soros’s ALDE group. Virtually no supporters of ALDE or Momentum appeared in the streets. The party may get at most one seat in the European Parliament, or else will disappear.

Today the Tooth Fairy got some of what he and his ilk deserve. The Islamic call to prayer was loudly playing, and cries of “Allahu Akhbar” and “you are a traitor to Europe” were shouted at him while he was trying to give interviews to the globalist media. (Otherwise you cannot hear the Islamic call to prayer anywhere in the streets in Hungary: the Muslim population is around 0.5%.) The activists say in the video that the Islamic call is apparently what Verhofstadt wants for this country too, which is why they are playing it for him.

The interview took place in front of the building of the Supreme Court of Hungary. One can see in the video that the dozen policemen are there to protect the building from a potential leftist attack, and could not care less about the right-wing trolls. Even if the activists were threatened by the leader of Momentum party, saying “you should be taken away by the police,” they obviously were not.

Brusselmans Says: Diversity is Europe’s Destiny

We posted a video of Frans Timmermans a few days ago in which the first vice-president of the European Commission said that Islam has belonged to Europe for 2,000 years — that is, since 600 years before Mohammed was born.

The video below includes a clip of the same illustrious Mr. Timmermans describing “diversity” as the absolute, unquestionable destiny of Europe. Many thanks to C for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

The second video is a Dutch campaign commercial targeting voters in today’s European parliamentary elections. It features the evil dictator of the EU, “Hans Brusselmans”, an obvious parody of Frans Timmermans. I’ll bet there are a lot of other references in this clip that the Dutch will find hilarious.

And it was created by the Socialist Party, of all things.

I’ll remind you that Mr. Timmermans is considered next in line to be General Secretary of the Party President of the European Commission, from which office Jean-Claude “Drunker” Juncker is about to retire.

Once again, many thanks to C for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Tommy Robinson: Viktor Orbán is the Defender of Europe

The European parliamentary elections began today and will continue until Sunday. Our Hungarian correspondent László sends this report on the current political alignment between Tommy Robinson and the government of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.

Tommy praising Orbán: “the strongest leader of Europe is Orbán, not Merkel or Macron”

by László

This video is the special English edition of the mainstream “M1” public broadcaster — the same report was on TV in Hungarian as well. The original video report was made by the right-wing media outlet Pesti Srácok in England and then all the Hungarian conservative media published it.

[It is a bit strange that you actually cannot hear Tommy himself in the this report — the English-language studio must have gotten the dubbed Hungarian version. But this is not the point here.]

This is of course political propaganda before the upcoming Sunday EU election here, but still it is noteworthy that the judgement of Tommy Robinson is what Orbán is measured by in the state media. In the video (at 01:15) you can hear the truth about Muslim rape gangs without any PC bias.

As I wrote last year, Tommy is mainstream in Hungary.

Now Tommy has perhaps become even more mainstream.

But it is not that surprising if you take into consideration what Deputy Prime Minister of Hungary Zsolt Semjén said on TV in April:

The defence against Islam is part of the Hungarian identity […] Islam divides the world into two parts. One is the dar al-islam, that is, the area that has already surrendered to Islam, and the dar al-harb which is the jihad or the land of war […] In my identity, János Hunyadi is dominant. [emphasis added]

This is the “Islamophobic” Hunyadi, who stopped Islam at Nándorfehérvár in 1456.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has become increasingly isolated as more and more cabinet members resign, the latest being Andrea Leadsom, the Tory leader in the House of Commons. Mrs. May still refuses to consider stepping down, despite a revolt among pro-Brexit members of her own party. The last straw was apparently her call for a second Brexit referendum.

In other news, according to the latest projections, four of the five largest parties after the European parliamentary elections will be “populist” parties, with the Brexit Party being the largest of all.

Police Terrorise Tommy Robinson Again

Paul Weston’s fisking of the Greater Manchester Thugs Police is dictionary-perfect.

What precisely is the point of the useless royal eunuchs who pretend to preside over a country and yet permit lawlessness not only to exist but to prevail? This on-going mess has turned me into an anti-monarchist. There’s not enough pomp and circumstance to cover this Greek tragedy in what has become a third-world, unsafe, and bitter green isle.

Paul is more eloquent than I in describing the high crimes and misdemeanors of the police enforcers:

May God have mercy on them all.

France Does Not Belong to the French!

Last weekend a mob of illegal immigrants — who styled themselves the “Black Vests” — occupied the Charles de Gaulle Airport outside Paris and staged a rally against French migration policy. One of the migrants (speaking in Arabic, which was translated into French) said:

“France does not belong to the French! All Africa has a right to be here!”

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

Below are excerpts from a Breitbart article (hat tip Seneca III) about the Black Vest occupation of the airport:

‘France Does Not Belong to the French!’ — Migrants Occupy Airport

Hundreds of illegal migrants occupied the Paris Charles de Gaulle airport in France, preventing people from boarding their flights and demanding to speak to Emmanuel Macron’s prime minister, Edouard Philippe.

“France does not belong to the French! Everyone has a right to be here!” yelled one of the migrants, organised by the pro-migration La Chapelle Debout group, through a loudspeaker, as they pressed for their presence in the country to be regularised.

Calling themselves “Black Vests” in a homage — of sorts — to the Yellow Vests who have been protesting Emmanuel Macron for months, the migrants also demanded Air France “stop any financial, material, logistical or political participation in deportations” in a statement published on Facebook.

[…]

Le Parisien reported that Paris Charles de Gaulle, the largest international airport in France, and second-largest in the European Union behind Britain’s London Heathrow, was targeted because of its proximity to an administrative detention centre in nearby Mesnil-Amelot (Seine-et-Marne), where illegal aliens are held prior to their expulsion from the country.

Air France, which the Black Vests denounced as the “official deporter of the French state”, did send a delegation to treat with the migrants’ representatives, and promised to “report their grievances to the management”.

The airline declined to comment on the incident to the media, however, referring reporters to the police prefecture.

[…]

Illegal migrants appear to have little fear of reprisals for such actions, with hundreds having conducted a similar protest demanding regularisation outside the Paris police quarters in January, according to Le Parisien.

They were even more brazen in 2018, storming the historic Basilica of Saint-Denis, which holds the tombs of many of France’s kings, alongside anti-borders left-wingers, forcing clergymen to cancel a Catholic mass and remaining in situ until the authorities forcibly ejected them from the premises.

National populist leader Marine Le Pen condemned the seeming involvement of left-wing politicians in the demonstration, blasting that, “By calling migrants to desecrate the Basilica of St. Denis, Necropolis of our Kings… the far-left show that, in their immigrationist madness, they are ready to trample our civilisation and desecrate a place of historical worship.”

China: Steve Bannon Is a Demon? A Dragon? Whatev.

Talking to Fox from France, Bannon points out that the Chinese attack on him, is aimed at a now-private citizen, not a politician. Is he intended to serve as a stand-in for Trump, who scares them more?

[Don’t forget that Mr. Bannon is one of the leading lights in the action group, The Present Danger: China. That title deliberately echoes the period of the Cold War against the Soviet Union, when conservatives fought against Russia’s attempt at world hegemony while many on the left played footsie with the Kremlin.

Now the players have changed: China’s questionable deals with Joe Biden and family are being ignored in the MSM while Steve Bannon’s continuing depth charges shake China’s façade.]

So here’s the latest salvo, served and returned:

What is of great interest is Bannon’s decision to work with the nationalist movement in Europe. He was certainly doing just that job as a leading strategist in the Trump campaign; when he came on board, the tone and focus became much more oriented toward our country qua economic nation. He convinced Trump to ignore the polls and focus on the people.

But previous to that, ever since the unexpected death of Andrew Breitbart in 2012, it would appear that Mr. Bannon began to lose whatever heart he had for team sports. That loss probably made his work in the Oval Office, post-election, feel confining. It was a fiery exit.

What he is doing in Europe now is strategic assessments for a number of nationalist teams without having to belong to any one of them. His work is vital and important; he knows European history (the man has been devouring books for decades) and he has mastered the geo-strategic goals of the major world players. That’s why China is bashing him so hard. They badly need to damage him before he spoils their game utterly.

Meanwhile, Bannon is attempting to support a refuge in Italy for the future of Judeo-Christian culture. This video from German media tries to undo the work of Trisulti. Given the continued rise of economic populism in the smaller countries of Europe, all left-wing media repetitions of “ultra-conservative”, “obsessive cults of identity”, etc, ad nauseam, is spitting in the wind of reality. Globalism is on the wane.

You will be hard put to find a reasonable media explanation for Bannon. I couldn’t find nary a one through three pages of searches. Acres of vitriol and venom, though. He could be even more demonized than Trump…may he enjoy his dragon costume. Thanks to Fox for giving him a small window from which to speak.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has proposed a second Brexit referendum. Meanwhile, according to the latest polls, the Brexit Party is in first place among Welsh voters, but is in second place in Scotland, where Remain is more popular.

In other news, former Vice President Joe Biden promised that abortions will be taxpayer-funded if he is elected president next year.

The Blind Men and the Elephant in the Room

With the European parliamentary elections rapidly approaching, and after today’s reports that Prime Minister Theresa May will seek a vote in the House of Commons on a second Brexit referendum, Seneca III sends these thoughts on the apocalyptic state of affairs in Modern Multicultural Britain.

The Blind Men and the Elephant in the Room

By Seneca III

The global war of minds continues unabated in virtually every sphere of our lives, always under the dark shadow of the elephant in the room.

For example, four top Western generals recently met at Sandhurst to debate items that change the essential character of war: the utility of autonomous weapons, the possibilities of pharmacological enhancement of soldiers, and the enduring importance of deception. It is reported that the discussion was held in a context in which each of them indicated the tension between military advantage and ethical constraints.

Why anyone would think there should be ethical constraints in a war against global Islam, which does not recognise such restraints in any way at all, is beyond me. The purpose of war is to ensure one’s own survival, and only total war seen through to victory can guarantee that. But, as always, at the end of the day policy is determined by politicians, as determined by their interests and those of their financial backers, not those of the body politic they were elected to serve.

In Westminster the current malignant proclivities of our parliamentarians, all of them, reminds me of a Wagnerian opera, where just before the gods marched into Valhalla it was said that it would end in Götterdämmerung… the destruction of the gods and of all things in a final battle with evil powers. The ongoing persecution of elderly veterans from wars long gone, wars which they were sent to fight according to the policies of the government of the day, is a living example of this process.

Thus, a problem I now foresee is that when the reality of their failing position and future prospects finally sinks in, the political classes will throw to the wind any sense of probity and decency they may have left and adopt a scorched-earth policy on their way out, doing even more damage to our democratic processes, our national security and the integrity of parliament than they already have, and leave us with nothing but the elephant in the room — that is why men and women of the indigenous ethnic majority must be able to decide on their own values and priorities and negotiate with others of the same to mutual benefit. When negotiation with invaders and their enablers is no longer an option, when that collection of deconstructionists is irrevocably determined to prevail in its interests alone, irrespective of ours, another dynamic enters human affairs from stage right.

That essential dynamic, freedom, is, above all other things, the most expensive, for it requires of us a willingness to confront those who would deprive us of that freedom — these days under the guise of ‘refugee’, asylum seeker’, ‘human rights’, ‘multiculturalism’ or those other moronic epithets bandied around with manic ferocity when anyone has the temerity to question the veracity of this evil nonsense — ‘Fascist!’, ‘Far Right’ and ‘Racist’. This is what unavoidably places us in the forefront of the battle ready to fight them to their death, for on that path is found the only way we can pass what is left of our freedom on to our children and grandchildren with any sense of surety.

The Entrapment of Heinz-Christian Strache

Until a few days ago Heinz-Christian Strache was the vice chancellor of Austria and the leader of the FPÖ (Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs, Austrian Freedom Party). Then a video surfaced that appeared to show him cutting a corrupt deal with a Russian investor. The video was recorded before the last general election, but wasn’t used against Mr. Strache during the campaign. It seems to have been held in escrow until now, just before the European parliamentary elections — in which the FPÖ was expected to do well, making it an important ally for Matteo Salvini, Geert Wilders, Marine Le Pen, and the other “populist” parties after the new parliament is seated.

The pretend Russian deal was an obvious set-up. As soon as I read the details, they seemed to point to a deep-state operation masterminded by Sebastian “Boy” Kurz, the leader of the ÖVP (Österreichische Volkspartei, Austrian People’s Party) who went on after the election to become chancellor, heading a government in coalition with the FPÖ. With the help of the German and Austrian intelligence services (and the Russians, of course), it looks like Mr. Kurz had planned in advance to create a reason to jettison Mr. Strache and call an election, after which he would be able to lead the government without the help of the FPÖ. I don’t understand his certainty that he can pull it off; but then, he knows the internal political currents in Austria, and I don’t. I assume he is anticipating a new coalition with the Social Democrats.

The following analysis of the entrapment of Heinz-Christian Strache more or less supports my intuition. It was recorded by Oliver Janich, a German author and journalist.

What’s particularly interesting about this video is Mr. Janich’s revelation that the TV comedian Jan Böhmermann was deeply involved in the entrapment scheme, and was at least a passive collaborator with the intelligence services. Long-time readers will remember that Mr. Böhmermann got himself into a spot of bother three years ago by publicly reciting a vulgar but amusing poem about Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
