Mark Rutte, Klaus Schwab, and the Great Reset

Gideon van Meijeren is a politician who represents the conservative populist party Forum voor Democratie (Forum for Democracy) in the Tweede Kamer, the lower house of the Dutch parliament.

In the following video from the floor of the Tweede Kamer, Mr. van Meijeren confronts the mendacious Prime Minister Mark Rutte when the latter denies having any knowledge of a book on the “Great Reset” written by Klaus Schwab, the founder of the World Economic Forum.

Socially acceptable “climate neutrality” is impossible

by Wolfgang Hübner

Since the catastrophic flood, “Climate Policy” has become more popular again. After the Baerbock disaster, the Green Party will put all the levers in the media — to which it is so extremely inclined — in motion until the federal election in September to hammer the electorate: Man-made climate change in the world must under all circumstances and at all costs be slowed, at least in Germany. Incidentally, it is precisely the most anti-national political force in this country that tries to score points in terms of climate and energy with a completely unrealistic, narrow-minded nationalist course. Because little Germany, which does not want to control its national borders, can of course not set any limits on the weather or the climate.

But it is easy for the Green Party to spread such nonsense. The other established parties have long since submitted to varying degrees to the irrational Climate Religion. And the Federal Constitutional Court, firmly in the hands of these parties, has, as is well known, sanctified everything. Nobody knows how the gigantic amounts of energy that are required now, and even more so in the future, will be produced in Germany after nuclear and coal-fired power plants have been phased out. But if you look at the problems from a religious point of view, you don’t necessarily have to worry. After all, there are countries that continue to rely on nuclear power, coal or gas and like to earn money selling energy supplies to the promised land of wind power fanatics.

All of this has to be paid for by the many millions of energy consumers in the most densely populated Germany that has ever existed. But that’s not all: Since the insane goal of a so-called “climate neutrality” between Flensburg and Constance is being striven for, measures are to be implemented in all areas of economy, traffic and everyday life that will be absolutely certain — namely expensive! All political parties and actors know this only too well. But that is precisely why they are extremely reluctant to talk about it. One more reason to do it. Because the desired “climate neutrality” will not be expensive for its political and economic profiteers, but for taxpayers and energy consumers; that is, the overwhelming majority of Germans.

Since the willingness to embark on political adventures such as “climate neutrality” often stutters or even falters, at least with one’s own money, the climate-active parties are very keen not to cause any unrest among the electorate. Even the Green Party wants to make the expected burdens “socially acceptable”. And their established competitors blow into the same horn with different lung strength. But all of this is nothing more than deliberate political deception. Because even with only a superficial consideration of the problem, it becomes clear: For the majority of Germans, “climate neutrality” will be associated with significant losses in income and without consumption. Because the German state cannot possibly even cushion the burdens in a “socially acceptable” manner, let alone compensate for them.

Boys Just Wanna Have Fun

Two mischievous young high-spirited “Swedes” have been convicted of gang-raping a 14-year-old mentally retarded girl. The Luleå District Court threw the book at them: five years in prison, followed by deportation. As for the deportation part, I’ll believe it when I see it. They were already supposed to have been deported prior to the crime, and refugees-welcome volunteer lawyers pull out all the stops to make sure that nobody, no matter how vile, can ever be deported from Sweden. So we’ll see.

There are a couple of things to note about this case. First, based on their current ages, they were 17 when they first applied for asylum in Sweden back in 2015. That was the year when many thousands of grizzled gap-toothed 17-year-old male culture-enrichers threw away their ID and entered Europe seeking asylum. They knew the rules were different for “unaccompanied minors” — with more generous social benefits and a better chance of being granted asylum — so they jumped into the wayback machine, became 17 years old again, and took up residence in Germany, Austria, and Sweden. If you could count the tree rings on these guys, they’d probably turn out to be a bit older than the 22 or 23 they claim to be now.

Secondly, the crime they were convicted of — manipulating and then gang-raping an underage mentally retarded girl — is a common motif among asylum seekers in Europe. It’s a species of crime that seems to be quite popular with culture-enrichers, while being almost unheard of among native Europeans.

The incident has a very unusual Mohammed Coefficient of 150%.

Deportation-ordered gang-raped handicapped girl in woods: “F*** you very nice”

[Photo caption: Janmohammed Mohamadi and Mohammad Musaruf. Photo: Police]

Two asylum-seekers from Afghanistan and Bangladesh respectively, who came to Sweden in connection with the migrant chaos and were earlier ordered deported, were convicted Thursday for aggravated rape of a child. This after they tricked a 14-year-old functionally handicapped girl into the woods in Norrbotten and there raped her vaginally, anally, and orally. The men, who had been spared deportation through the school amnesty, are now being punished with prison and deportation, but will be allowed to return to Sweden again.

On April 28 of this year 22-year-old Janmohammed Mohamadi, Afghan citizen, and 23-year-old Mohammad Musaruf, citizen of Bangladesh, picked up a 14-year-old girl in a car from her school. Mohammad, who was superficially familiar with the girl, had enticed her to go for a ride.

The girl, who, according to legal documents, has a disability, was surprised that Mohammad had another friend with him in the car and also began to feel worried when she saw that they were going far away from her hometown of Klöverträsk, 40 kilometers outside of Luleå. The men eventually stopped at a hidden turnoff.

[Inset: After marking by a dog with competence for detecting sperm, an area was observed where the mark gave off a blue forensic light source in combination with yellow observation filter. A soil sample was secured in the area marked by the dog.]

Took turns raping

At the location, Janmohammed and Mohammad took turns climbing into the back seat and forcing the girl to perform oral sex. But though the girl asked the men to stop, the rape continued-they also penetrated the girl both vaginally and anally.

After the incident, they drove back with the car and the girl was released. When she came home, the girl’s guardian noticed that she was distant and also began to cry. Later the same day, the girl was taken to the hospital for an examination.

Ordered deported — but allowed to stay after school amnesty

Samnytt has received information from the Migration Agency in which it appears that both Janmohammed and Mohammad had initially received a deportation decision from the Migration Agency since they lacked grounds for asylum.


Mohammad Musaruf (19980818-)

  • Interpretation need — Bengali or Hindi, citizen of Bangladesh.
  • Represented by attorney Marcus Strom
  • Warrant issued April 28, 2021, Arrested May 6, 2021, Ordered held in custody, May 7, 2021

Janmohammed Mohamadi (19991013-)

  • Interpretation need — Dari, citizen of Afghanistan
  • Represented by attorney Marko Tuhkanen
  • Warrant issued April 30, 2021, arrested April 30, 2021, Ordered held in custody May 3, 2021

Janmohammed first applied for asylum in Sweden on 7 November 2015. The Migration Agency rejected his application on 13 October 2017, and at the same time, decided to deport him to Afghanistan. The decision became final on 28 May 2018, but thereafter, Janmohammed applied for a residence and work permit to study at a secondary level.

The Clueless Clucking Clan

MC’s latest essay concerns the intersection of Racism, Woke ideology, and the Corona “pandemic”.

The Clueless Clucking Clan

by MC

I am an anti-vaxxer. I have spent hours of study, looking at the benefits of vaccines, and also the risks associated with vaccines, and the effectiveness of vaccines — I have also followed the money…

In my opinion, it is not a pretty picture.

My oldest son had a febrile fit following on from an MMR injection (he is now 40) — he survived, and in spite of some small personality changes, he was OK.

It was my sister-in-law who warned us about the MMR Jab and its dubious history (the first version was withdrawn after adverse side-effects were reported). My wife and I had argued over having the jab for our son; unfortunately, I won.

I would encourage all parents to do the research for themselves, here is a good place to start.

If I wanted to break the Constitution of the USA I would have to choose my point of attack very carefully; I would need to get the People to want to break it, to be so fearful of outcomes as to voluntarily submit to destroying individual choice for the benefit of the ‘group’.

What could be better, then, than a ‘Satan Bug‘ and a vaccine that ‘must’ be administered to all for it to be ‘safe’ and effective and provide ‘salvation’?

It is not white supremacy as such which is the problem, after all, almost all of the original communists were white (and mostly male — Kollontai and Luxemburg being the exceptions). Most of those who fought against slavery were white, and most of those who dreamt up ideas of individual liberty and freedom were also white.

It is ironic that dead white men are also behind the wokism that so besets the modern USA and most of the rest of the world, and one might even think that any intelligent non-white wokista would smell a rat…

Imagine a modern implementation of the post-bellum Ku Klux Klan, but designed to support minority non-white interests instead of defeated ‘white’ interests. What would it look like? It seems to me that the Democrat party has once more scraped through the bottom of their barrel of dirty tricks and come up with an inverted KKK clone — lets call it the CCC.

The assassination of President Lincoln created political chaos, especially as he had chosen a Democrat as his running mate Vice President in the hope of some sort of reconciliation. President Trump was not assassinated as such, but a majority of Americans believe that there was election fraud, and that Sleepy Joe is just not legitimate.

The reactions of the Democrats to the Arizona election audit has convinced me that there is something to hide here. Instead of welcoming an audit as an honest winner would do, the Democrats are squirming like a child who has had an ‘accident’.

Wokism is pure racism and is Nazism in drag. It will soon turn lethal if not scotched. The political buildup that led to Adolf Hitler started with a ‘red/green’ alliance; The socialism of German Workers’ Party (DAP) combined with the ‘volkism’ of the Thule, Vril and Wandervogel pseudo-religious cults gave us the NSDAP and many millions dead.

Another Phony Islamic Academic

This story about a bogus professor of Islam in Germany brings to mind the silver-tongued philosopher and snake-oil salesman Tariq Ramadan.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Politically Incorrect:

Fake professor advised the state of North Rhine-Westphalia on Islam

by Manfred Rouhs

The Ministry of Education of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia is separating itself from a (possibly only supposed) humanities scholar who advised the authority on Islamic matters for more than ten years. This is what Die Welt reports. The report states that the man “apparently built his professional career partly on false information.” The vernacular speaks of impostors in cases of this type.

The long-standing government advisor was responsible for, among other things, Islamic religious instruction in the most populous federal state, and prefixed his name with “Prof. Dr.” Photos show him with important politicians such as the former Federal Presidents Christian Wulff and Horst Köhler, whose image of Islam he apparently helped to shape.

Too bad that nobody knows on which university he’s a professor at. And a dissertation written by him could not even be found by the editors of Die Welt. The termination of his contract with the Düsseldorf Ministry allows the assumption that the Islam scholar’s curriculum vitae, which was submitted more than a decade ago when he was hired, may have been incorrect in some details.

Obviously, an academic career at Central European universities is not necessary to successfully advise a Federal Republican ministry for more than ten years on matters of Islam and, in particular, Islamic religious instruction. What is important for such activities is rather the ability of the advisor to listen carefully and to be able to find out what the decision-makers to be advised want to hear: Islam is good. Islam is harmless. You really don’t have to have studied to be able to tell this…

Wearing Out Their Welcome

It’s been six years since Chancellor Angela Merkel opened the borders and invited the world to take up residency in Germany. Hellequin GB has translated three articles from PolitikStube with some of the latest news on the Great Migration Crisis.

The first article discusses the fact that culture-enrichers are sucking up a larger and larger proportion of the country’s welfare payments. “Hartz IV” is a reference to the current social welfare benefits system in Germany:

13 billion euros for foreign Hartz IV recipients

Entitlements have doubled since 2007 — fewer German citizens receive benefits

The entitlement payments for Hartz IV recipients without a German passport have doubled since 2007 and have increased to almost €13 billion in 2020. In 2019 it was €12.5 billion. This emerges from a response from the Federal Ministry of Labour to a request from the AfD member René Springer, which was made available to the Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung (NOZ).

In 2007, the claims of foreign Hartz IV recipients were therefore just under €6.6 billion. The increase to date has been around 6.4 billion euros. “Germany needs a restrictive immigration policy that effectively prevents poverty migration. Denmark shows us that such a policy is possible if the political will is there,” Springer told the NOZ.

Because the number of German Hartz IV recipients has declined in recent years, the payment claims of all beneficiaries have fallen by a total of €1.1 billion to €35.4 billion. The sum of the Hartz IV payment claims of German households decreased from almost €30 billion in 2007 to €22.3 billion in 2020. That is €7.7 billion less than 13 years ago, according to the answer from the Ministry of Labour.

In the group of foreign Hartz IV recipients, citizens from other EU countries had claims of around €2.6 billion. For people from the eight most important asylum countries of origin, it was a good €6 billion. More than half of this (€3.4 billion) went to refugees from Syria, followed by Iraqis (€825 million) and Afghans (€870 million).

According to the statistics, around one in ten beneficiaries (9.7 percent) is a Syrian. In 2007, almost 82 percent of all Hartz IV recipients were Germans; their share has now fallen to 62.9 percent.

Persons entitled to asylum in Germany are eligible for standard benefits according to the second German Social Code (Hartz IV) after one and a half years of residence at the earliest, if they cannot provide for their own maintenance.

More and more welfare, and also more and more knife attacks, according to the second article:

Four Years in Juvie For Burning a Woman to Death

Back in February I posted about a gang of culture-enrichers in the Swedish city of Nässjö who set fire to a house with an elderly woman inside, burning her to death.

The Swedish “justice” system has now thrown the book at those rascally youths: the ringleader has been sentenced to four years in juvenile detention, and his accomplices were given similar sentences. Ha! That’ll teach those young whippersnappers a lesson!

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from Nyheter Idag:

17-year-old sentenced to 4 years in juvenile custody after arson

ANNEBERG: On Friday a 17-year-old boy was sentenced for setting a villa on fire in Anneberg in Nässjö municipality and killing a woman who lived there. SVT reports that he has been sentenced to four years in juvenile custody for murder and arson.

The crime occurred on February 1 of this year. The 17-year-old admitted that he set the fire which caused the total destruction of the house and the incineration of the woman inside, but maintains that he didn’t think the woman was still inside and that he had no intention of killing her.

The Eksjö District Court convicted him of murder and arson as well as aggravated theft, vandalism, and harassment, and the punishment is four years in juvenile detention. He will also pay 180,000 kronor in damages to the woman’s relatives.

“That is a reasonable punishment, which corresponds to life in prison for an adult,” says Prosecutor Helene Thomasson to SVT.

Before the fire started the 17-year-old and his two companions harassed the 68-year-old woman. They followed her to her home and shouted curse words at her and spat at her, among other things. The woman called the police, who came, but by then the trio had left.

The two accomplices have been sentenced to juvenile detention and youth service for harassment and also for violation of the law for protection from accidents, since they did not sound the alarm for the fire.

The Worst Emperor in History

Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan presents a historical overview of the man who did so much to usher in the Great War.

The worst emperor in history

by H. Numan

Who’s that? Though one to answer, what? So many choices. Was it Nero? Caligula? Perhaps a Chinese emperor? Nope. None of those. The very worst emperor in history was German. It was the last German emperor, Wilhelm II. He inherited a stable empire, well on its way to becoming a dominant economic power of Europe. When he was forced to abdicate, his empire lay in tatters. Not only his own empire, mind you. His fall was accompanied and preceded by the empires of Russia, Austria and the Ottomans. His rule influenced current world affairs enormously. Because of his actions the British empire fell a few decades later. And we can thank him for the demise of Western civilization. Due to his actions Hitler was able to rise to power, and in the east Lenin was put in charge. The latter was on his direct orders. Without his personal support Lenin could never have gained power in Russia. Without a communist Russia the People’s Republic of China was not possible.

It all began so well. When Wilhelm ascended his throne, Germany was a well-respected country. The world was (mostly) at peace. Germany was managed very capably by Bismarck. It was allied with Austria and Russia in the Three Emperors’ League. The three countries had a lot in common: none of them was democratic. All of them were ruled by autocrats, and they all were extremely conservative. If one political league was a natural one, this was it. When Austria couldn’t control socialist uprisings in 1848, the Russian Empire sent troops to its aid. Not because they had to. Not because they could grab some Austrian territories. But because the czar felt he was morally obliged to help his colleague ward off evil.

France was recovering from the Franco-Prussian war, but in no position to do something about it. There was no Franco-British alliance. More the opposite: France and England fought for centuries against one another. England’s position on Germany was somewhat indifferent: it wasn’t a naval superpower, that was all that mattered to England. They saw Wilhelm as a sort of clown, who excelled in one thing only: gigantic gaffes. The German foreign affairs department had to work overtime to defuse them.

Broadly speaking, the world was at peace. Colonialism worked. Yes, there were some uprisings here and there, but no national liberation movements. Some colonies became self governing countries (Australia, New Zealand, Canada) within the British empire.

That more or less peaceful world changed completely when Wilhelm II took control. His first act was to get rid of Bismarck. Who needs a competent if not the best chancellor Germany ever had? Certainly not Wilhelm II. Who needs a league of emperors? So he got rid of that too. Wilhelm II was related to every monarch in Europe. Let’s keep it all in the family!

Wilhelm II fancied yachting. Then and now, a sport for the very rich. That made him an admiral, or so he thought. He read the book by Alfred Mahan, and decided Germany should become a naval superpower. Being Willy 2, he didn’t fancy becoming a naval super power, but of course the naval superpower.

He was in luck. The British made the same mistake as the French before them. The French built La Gloire, the first ocean-going all-steel warship. “Jolly good,” said the British, “we can do that too!” The French capacity to produce steel and warships was not nearly as developed as the British, so they didn’t even bother to try to compete. They knew they were beaten.

Later, the British built the first modern real battleship, HMS Dreadnought. Just as revolutionary as La Gloire, if not a good deal more so. At a stroke, all capital ships of every navy were obsolete, including those of the Royal Navy. Hey, said the emperor. Here’s our (= my) chance. Let’s build a lot of dreadnoughts. We’re gonna be the world’s naval superpower! Yes, openly. It was Germany’s destiny, after all. You don’t make friends that way. There was only one tiny little problem. Like France, Germany lacked the capability to outproduce Britain. Unlike France, Willy 2 refused to accept that fact. He tried to out-build the Royal Navy. In vain and at great cost to his nation.

Coronafascism is Here

Harald Laatsch is a politician for the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany).

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from PolitikStube:

Harald Laatsch: How to build a totalitarian state

We have been held captive for more than a year by a plan that has never had the effects it was thought to have had.

All relevant groups are in the same boat. Political parties, media, churches, trade unions, associations and authorities. They all work in perfect coordination. If you look at the definition of fascism, you’ll feel embarrassed.

There is neither an overuse nor an overload of the health system, but a conspicuously high rate of vaccination damage and death. Coordinated on how things are going, the media report completely uncritically, almost propagandistically positive about the measures.

In the meantime, other states have long since proven that the threatened scenario with millions of deaths does not exist. The Swedes are leading the way, and they have good reason to do so.

We have been led to believe such a dramatic scenario before, but at that time nobody in Germany went with it: the swine flu. The initiator, same as this time: Drosten [the virologist Christian Drosten].

Back then, the Swedes were more gullible and let themselves be herded like sheep. The result? A high incidence of adverse effects from the vaccine that caused permanent trauma. The Swedes have learned their lesson.

But let’s come back to the establishment of a totalitarian state or, to make it clearer, the continuous building of a dictatorship. While even old people are beaten down with the most brutal police violence when there is even the slightest suspicion of protest and commitment to freedom and rights, criminals are unhindered when dealing drugs in public or forcing themselves as commuters onto public transport. How does that fit together?

Not at all! Nor does it have to, because the media arm of the dictatorship is in the boat. A particular pioneer of this practice is the media arm of left-wing extremism, the Tagesspiegel. Their attacks on the free world range up to an unbelievable derailment against #Lockdowneverything.

Free opinions must be suppressed by all means. People who express them must be turned into persona non grata; that seems to be the slogan and mission. Optionally, fighters for freedom are called right-wing radicals, Covidiots or even anti-Semites. The connection no longer needs to be established, it is simply asserted in unison.

Anyone who thought we would have to file a lawsuit was thwarted by an amended infection protection ordinance, because the lawsuits had quite considerable success. So the citizen has only the constitutional complaint, the Federal Constitutional Court — but wait, this hope is in vain.

Because the new president of the court, which was formerly supposed to protect our constitution, which often succeeded after a fashion, with Solomonian instead of constitutional-oriented judgments, is the CDU MP Harbath. With him the ultimate authority of the sovereign was undermined. He is a vicarious agent of the FDJ [Free German Youth] specialist [Merkel] in agitation and propaganda and therefore a coffin nail of the FDGO [Constitution].

Würzburg Was a Sedative, Not a Wake-Up Call

As you all know by now, last Friday a Somali “youth” went on a stabbing rampage in the city of Würzburg in Bavaria, killing three people and wounding a half-dozen others before police stopped him by shooting him in the leg.

It was encouraging to read that local citizens, instead of cowering behind Merkel Legos, chased after the murderous culture-enricher before police arrived on the scene. And the incident caused widespread public outrage — could it be that Germany’s Willkommenskultur (welcoming culture) is finally giving way to hard-headed realism about the catastrophic effects of mass third-world immigration?

The short answer to that question is: No.

Hellequin GB has translated a selection of articles from various sources that illustrate the fact that nothing has changed after Würzburg, at least not at the level of the political leadership.

First, from PolitikStube:

Incomprehensible! Federal states stop new deportation law: Over 291,000 asylum seekers who are obliged to leave the country

The number of asylum seekers who are obliged to leave the country is increasing from year to year; no wonder anyone who has somehow made it to Germany and used the magic word “asylum” as a door opener will no longer want to voluntarily leave the paradise with the high social benefits.

291,462 asylum seekers who are legally obliged to leave Germany are staying in Germany and have made themselves comfortable in the land of milk and honey. Their place at the honey pot is secured; after all, there is no political will for rigorous deportations. There is indifference; neither politics nor the authorities seem to care about the grievances and the waste of taxpayers’ money.


291,462 rejected asylum seekers are currently “legally obliged to leave the country”. The Federal Ministry of the Interior announced this in response to BILD’s request. But only a fraction actually return to their home country.

From January to May 2021, only 4,671 migrants were deported. Most of the deportations were carried out by NRW [North Rhine-Westphalia] (1163), followed by Bavaria (762), Berlin (413) and Baden-Württemberg (395). The federal states do not have enough deportation detention places, and fail because of missing papers. The federal police could give them more support.

But on Friday — the day of the Würzburg Islamist attack — the federal states prevented just that. By an overwhelming majority, they stopped a law in draft, the Federal Council that would have allowed the federal police to deport, if they were to apprehend someone who was obliged to leave, if they were caught in their area of jurisdiction (e.g. in the train station).

The Somali mujahid is said to have had a history of mental problems, so after Würzburg the focus will be on boosting the country’s psychiatric industry.

The second report is also from PolitikStube:

Knife attack in Würzburg: detectives demand more funds for the mentally ill

In almost every knife attack, the perpetrator’s psychological problems are placed in the foreground; at the same time “experts”, politicians or socially romantic followers come out of their holes to discuss the background of the mentally ill violent perpetrators and to relativize the crime as much as possible. The chairman of the Bund deutscher Kriminalbeamter (BdK) also speaks out and calls for more funds for the treatment of the mentally ill. Due to the shortage of skilled workers, the sick could not be adequately treated.

Epoch Times:

The chairman of the Bund deutscher Kriminalbeamter (BdK), Sebastian Fiedler, calls for better equipment in the psychiatric field. “As with the attack in Hanau or the crime at Frankfurt Airport, we are apparently dealing with a mentally ill perpetrator in the Würzburg case,” he told the newspapers of the Funke media group (Monday editions). “We have significant problems with mentally ill people at many levels.”

At the same time, there has long been a dramatic shortage of skilled workers in psychiatry, which prevents the sick from receiving adequate treatment.

“A particular problem are people who become mentally ill as a result of traumatic war experiences.” That is “not an original issue of the security authorities, but of the health sector,” said Fiedler. “The shortage of skilled workers in psychiatry is also an enormous safety problem. Jens Spahn has long been obliged to present a plan for how he will get the problem under control.”

Instead of wearing a black armband in mourning for the victims of the attack in Würzburg, German footballers are celebrating deviants and will kneel to honor people with high levels of melanin skin-pigment.

We Need More Refugees!

The Left party (Die Linke) in Germany is unhappy with the pace of “family reunification”. It wants more migrants, and faster!

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Die Welt:

Around 11,000 migrants are waiting for visa appointments

Thousands of people are waiting for appointments in Germany’s diplomatic missions. Currently, the number of approved visas for family reunification is far below the legal limit — the Left in the Bundestag has sharply criticized the federal government for this.

According to a media report, almost 11,000 relatives of migrants are waiting for an appointment in German diplomatic missions abroad for a visa for family reunification. This emerges from the response of the federal government to a request from the left-wing parliamentary group in the Bundestag, which the newspapers of the Funke media group have received. According to this, as of the end of March there were 10,974 appointment requests for family reunification for a refugee admitted in this country with so-called subsidiary protection — for example in embassies and consulates in Lebanon, northern Iraq and Turkey. Subsidiary or limited protection is given to anyone who is at risk of serious harm in their home country, for example torture or war. For example, many Syrian civil war refugees fall into this category.

According to the Funke report, the number of monthly visas for reuniting with subsidiary protection is still well below the limit of 1,000 people per month set by law . In January 2021, the German diplomatic missions issued 264 visas for family reunification, in February 473, in March 442 and in April 363. In the complex application process, the Federal Office of Administration acts as the interface between the immigration authorities and diplomatic missions abroad. With the corona pandemic and restrictions also in the work of German consulates, the numbers had recently dropped significantly again, but they had already been below the upper limit. The interior expert of the left parliamentary group in the Bundestag, Ulla Jelpke, criticized the federal government sharply. “It is a shame that currently only a few hundred members of those entitled to subsidiary protection are allowed to join their families each month — that is not even half of the already unconstitutional quota,” Jelpke told the Funke newspapers.

A New Dutch Cabinet? Don’t Hold Your Breath.

Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan sends an update on the interlocking political scandals in The Netherlands.

Geert Wilders tweeted: “An outing of the CDA party faction”

A new Dutch cabinet? Don’t hold your breath.

by H. Numan

I’ve reported about the Dutch elections in March. How’s the cabinet formation going? Not quite well. And it won’t, for the foreseeable future. A game changer event happened: Pieter Omtzigt resigned from his party. His resignation makes an extreme left-wing minority cabinet inevitable. A crazy left-wing cabinet, as the biggest party in it will be the “conservative” VVD party. So, what happened?

For many decades Dutch politics were ruled by religious parties. Our first real political party was the ARP or Anti Revolutionary Party. They were staunchly protestant (Calvinist). What revolution they were against? The French revolution! Yeah, I never understood why either. Vive le roi! In those days Dutch society was strongly pillared. Everything was segregated according to religion or political affiliation. I’ve told you that many times. You were born into a (in my case) Catholic family. That means an RC nurse delivered you. Your mum would visit the RC baby-care center. You’d go to an RC kindergarten, primary school, secondary school, get a job in an RC company, date and marry (in that order) an RC girl, if necessary go to an RC hospital, retire to an RC nursing home and eventually be laid to rest in an RC cemetery. You’d listen to the RC radio KRO, and vote for the Catholic KVP party. I experienced the last remnants of that society.

That changed completely in the ‘60s. The pillars disappeared, together with confessionalism. Religion was no longer a focal point in one’s life. Two protestant and one Catholic party realized they would no longer be able dominate politics. From now on, a cabinet without any religious parties was a strong possibility. They decided to merge, and formed the CDA or Christian Democrat Appèl (Appeal). That way they could still rule over Dutch politics for decades, which they did.

Like the proverbial whore of Babylon, they did it with anyone in any way. Usually with the — then — conservative VVD. A progressive cabinet was no problem for the Christian Democrats. We’ll do any trick you want, big daddy! They positioned themselves as the inevitable and unavoidable center party.

It was a smart move, but nonetheless a rearguard action. Because the trend in western Europe is secular, definitely so in Holland. For many Americans probably a rude awakening, or a refreshing shower, depending your point of view. In Dutch politics your sexual preference doesn’t matter. We’ve had plenty of gay politicians. You can be openly gay in America, but you’d never be in the running for president. Likewise, we have plenty of openly atheist politicians. When an American politician admits he is an atheist he just told you he’s not interested in a higher office. Your evolution vs creation politics are for us laughable. Or hilariously ridiculous. No European politician would be crazy enough to admit he’s a creationist. In America he’s taken seriously. In Europe, and particularly in Holland, he’d be the village (or a real) idiot. Religion does play a role, but nowhere near the way it does in America. Home schooling, for example, is not even possible.

Understandably, that had consequences for the Christian Democrat Party. They were — and are — in a sort of limbo. What to do? With the resignation of Pieter Omtzigt, the last shreds of credibility went with him. Everybody knows the CDA is now a wishy-washy party only looking for political power. CDA stands for Christenen Dienen Allah, or Christians serving Allah. Literally, as they accepted many mohammedans in the party and promote them to influential positions. When mosques want to broadcast the adhan over loudspeakers, it’s not only progressive parties that support it. The CDA also does that. Much more so than other parties. Because they want to show they are still a religious party. Yup, including that religion. Corruption scandals are standard in every political party. It’s just that the CDA top seems to think that the C stands for corruption. They eventually lost power in 2010, when premier Balkenende had to resign. He was at that time too religious and far too Calvinistic for the electorate. The CDA went into decline. Right now, that decline is terminal. Nay, they are dead. No resurrection over the weekend. Dead as a dodo.

Send in the Army!

It looks like Endgame is fast approaching for Modern Multicultural Sweden. Municipal leaders in the Gothenburg — the country’s second-largest city — are calling for the army to be sent in to control cultural enrichment in the city’s gang-ridden no-go zones.

The call for military intervention isn’t coming from the WAYCISTS of Sverigedemokraterna (the Sweden Democrats), but from representatives of Moderaterna (the Moderates), the nominally center-right party of former Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt.

That’s how serious the situation is.

Moderaterna in Gothenburg: Send in the military against the gangs

After recent serious violence in the Gothenburg suburb of Hjällbo, Hampus Magnussen, the municipal counselor (M) in Gothenburg, is proposing that the military should be deployed against gang criminals in a motion voted through by Moderaterna (Moderates) in Western Sweden. In the autumn, the proposal will be considered at the Moderates party meeting.

“We have a police authority that is under enormous pressure and in many ways is at a disadvantage. So we think that the military can support them in many tasks where they have relevant training, such as setting up roadblocks and searching vehicles,” says Hampus Magnusson to Dagens Samhälle.

Presently, the Swedish military cannot be used on the grounds that “there is a risk that it could use force or violence against individuals,” according to the provision on defense forces support to civilian activity, something the Moderates in Western Sweden want to change.

“It is my absolute judgment that there must be a change in legislation. What is happening today in Sweden where individual policemen’s homes are being fired at, and there are explosions at police stations, is the domestic terrorism of our times,” says Magnussen to Dagens Samhälle.

Magnusson’s proposal is supported by the municipal board chairman in Gothenburg, Axel Josefson (M).

“This is a way that can help the absolutely acute police shortage we have in Sweden, where we want to go back to a system in which you can use emergency police who can support the police in special incidents, and it will naturally be under police leadership,” says Josefson to Expressen.

Belgium investigates channeling of development money to Palestinian terrorists

June 2, 2021

Minister for Development Cooperation Meryame Kitir confirmed in Parliament that an investigation is underway into Belgian developmental aid that has possibly been channeled to the financing of terrorist activities by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

She answered a question from N-VA Parliament Member Kathleen Depoorter: “This matter is very serious, and cannot be taken lightly. I am happy that the matter is being investigated, but also expect quick answers and appropriate steps by the minister.”

A report accuses seven Palestinian organizations of channeling developmental money from Western European donors, intended for the local people, to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a terrorist organization according to the European Union.

Among the suspected organizations are also found partners of Belgian developmental cooperation such as Health Work Committees (HWC), but also the organization Defense for Children International Palestine (DCIP), which Belgium wanted to give speaking time in the United Nations Security Council.

€3.76 million support improperly used

Minister Kitir confirms that in the past five years the concerned organizations, through their Belgian partners, received up to €3.70 million of which €660,000 through Viva Salud, €1.8 million through Oxfam, and €1.3 million through Broederlijk Delen (Brotherly Sharing). According to the Israelis, our support is improperly used. They reportedly submitted a report to our government, after which the minister opened an investigation.

Payments suspended in Netherlands, Belgian government remains silent

MP Kathleen Depoorter points out that these reports in the Netherlands caused the necessary commotion in the government, and the payments were suspended. “I note that our government, while the allegations are serious, remains much quieter. Nonetheless, I have asked the minister to look into these reports and that she bring her own investigation into the misuse to the Parliament. Everyone is innocent until the opposite is proven, and these Palestinian organizations deserve a fair chance, but we expect appropriate measures if the facts are proven.”
