“Our Citizens Owe Afghanistan Nothing”

The following video features a member of the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) speaking in the Landtag, or regional parliament, of North Rhine-Westphalia. His remarks refer to the Green Party’s demand that Germany admit thousands of new Afghan “refugees”.

600 million for Taliban-Afghanistan: Why isn’t Merkel charged for supporting a terrorist organization?

by Stefan Schubert
September 11, 2021

What is the difference between needy flood victims in Ahrtal and the radical-Islamist terrorists in Afghanistan? The people in Germany have been robbed of their entire existence, not the least by the failure of politics; they can, perhaps — beginning in October — fill out online forms to apply for state subsidies, which will then, after a review, be paid out sometime. The Merkel government has immediately transferred €600 million to the Taliban terrorists without any bureaucracy or evidence. So much for the priorities of this federal government.

It should not be left unmentioned here that the federal government called on the population to financially support the victims of the flood catastrophe. The citizens with some of the world’s highest taxes and fees should also pay for the failures of politics with additional compensation payments. In the aftermath of the flood catastrophe, it became known that the federal government was responsible for large gaps in disaster control. Over 1,300 special vehicles were lacking, which the federal government was required by law to provide to the states for disaster control. Special vehicles for protection from and for the elimination of biological, radiological, and nuclear dangers are short by about 30%. The former chief of Technical Relief (THW), Albrecht Broemme, was quoted in Der Spiegel with the following words on disaster control in Germany: “The whole world is laughing at us”.

Taliban: Murderers of German soldiers receive German tax money

Until the takeover of the Taliban, politics and the mainstream media observed the same assessment of the fully-bearded radical-Islamists: A brutal, Middle Ages terror organization that oppresses girls and women, including forced marriages, rape, and stoning. Homosexuals are not only verbally persecuted, but sometimes end up on the gallows, and Islamic Sharia stands above any law or human rights.

The Taliban were mainly described as a brutal terror organization, who with bombs and suicide attackers blew up and mutilated thousands of Western soldiers. Afghans who were accused of being collaborators with the West were shot on the spot without any due process. In addition, the Taliban are close allies of other Islamist terrorist organizations, like Al Qaeda, who murder worldwide in the name of Islam as well as persecute and terrorize Western citizens as “unbelievers”.

Has anything changed in any of these points since the Taliban took Kabul in a coup and inflicted a humiliating military defeat on the West?

No, it has not. The blood of countless victims of their reign of terror, including the blood of dozens of murdered German soldiers, still clings to the hands of the Taliban and their close allies from Al-Qaeda.

What are the survivors and traumatized Afghanistan-veterans supposed to feel when the Chancellor of the Federal Republic stands in front of the microphones of the capital city (Berlin) press and announces talks now with the Taliban? These bloodthirsty Middle Ages monsters have now, from one day to the next, been upgraded by Mrs. Merkel to equal negotiating partners?

The Crash of Civilization

by Fjordman

The terror attacks of September 11, 2001 were the type of shocking event where many people remember exactly where they were and what they did that day. Personally, I was living in Egypt at that time. I had started studying Arabic language at the University of Bergen in western Norway. In 2001 I continued these studies at the American University in Cairo.

My linguistic skills in Arabic were mediocre. Since I left the Middle East in 2003 and haven’t practiced the language since, my Arabic has deteriorated and is now quite poor. For me, studying Arabic primarily became a door into studying Islam and Islamic culture. I was far better in this field of study, and continued my personal studies of Islam for years. I am at heart not a linguist, but rather an analyst with a strong interest in history.

Before September 2001, I was already growing more skeptical of Islam based on my own studies and personal experiences. Still, living in the largest city in the Arabic-speaking world during the September 11 Jihadist attacks was certainly interesting. The Mubarak regime imposed a curfew on Tahrir Square and parts of downtown Cairo that day. Perhaps they feared that some local Muslims would publicly celebrate the attacks, the way some Palestinian Muslims did. When Egypt received billions of dollars in aid from the USA, this would not have been good publicity.

I followed the news and newspapers back home via the Internet. They claimed that all Arabs and Muslims were sad and horrified by the attacks. This is not true. I know. I was there. Some of my Egyptian Muslim neighbors celebrated with cakes and said openly that they were very happy about the attacks.

To me, the most shocking thing about this was not that many Arabs and Muslims hated the West in general and the USA in particular. I already knew that. What was truly disturbing was that virtually the entire Western world seemed to be in complete denial about this fact. This was an entire civilization which once used to cultivate logic and reason, yet now seemed to have lost the ability to think rationally. That really scared me.

The Chinese military strategist Sun Tzu completed his book The Art of War around the year 500 BC. Despite being more than 2,500 years old, it remains surprisingly fresh and relevant. This is because Sun Tzu focused mainly on the psychological aspects of conflict. While human technology has changed greatly in 2,500 years, human psychology has changed a lot less. One of the most famous quotes from The Art of War is this:

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

From what I observed in September 2001, it seemed that the Western world had forgotten who our enemies are. Far worse, though, was that we had even forgotten who we are, and the roots of our own civilization.

A decade later, another terror attack would have an even more direct impact on my life. Both attacks became national traumas. Yet the 2011 attacks in Norway were carried out by a single individual acting alone, whose alleged terrorist network only existed inside his mentally disturbed head. The 2001 attacks in the USA were carried out by many different individuals from a real international terror network whose ideology has adherents worldwide. Moreover, when a small country is attacked, this is bad for that small country. When a large and powerful country is attacked, this has geopolitical consequences.

By 2011, I had been living in the same flat in Oslo for eight years, since my return from the Middle East. When the July 22 attacks happened, some people blamed me personally for the atrocities. I suddenly found myself near the epicenter of an international news story. This was extremely unpleasant, but in some ways also educational. If the 2001 attacks weakened my trust in Western mass media, the 2011 attacks totally destroyed it.

Continue reading

Been There. Done That.

Unless some compelling reason emerges in future years, this will be my last 9-11 anniversary post.

It’s been an educational twenty years, to say the least. The first three anniversaries came up before Dymphna and I started blogging in October of 2004. During those years we had begun our studies of Islam and sharia, eventually launching Gates of Vienna to make our own small contribution to what later became known as the Counterjihad. From 2005 onward, one or the other of us always did a commemorative post when September 11th rolled around.

I still remember what I was doing when I heard the news on that bright, cool September morning, and how the day subsequently unfolded, but I’m not going to write about all that — I’ve covered it too many times before. And I’ll stay away from the political sequelae, except to note that the way the Patriot Act was eventually abused was at least as bad as the most skeptical libertarians predicted, and probably worse.

Over the next decade I spent a lot of time educating myself about Islam and sharia. Beginning in 2009, retired Major Stephen Coughlin was especially helpful in furthering my education. He made me understand the depth and breadth of the penetration of the federal government and the military by the Muslim Brotherhood, to the point that we had written sharia into the constitutions that we devised for Iraq and Afghanistan.

At first it seemed that a combination of ignorance and cluelessness had led to such foolhardy behavior, but as time went by — especially after the Islamophiles in the Obama administration got going full throttle — I realized that there was more than mere ignorance at work. Yes, there were plenty of ill-informed and stupid people at the upper levels of the government and the military, but John Brennan — just to pick an example — was not one of them. There was no way that he could have failed to understand exactly what the Muslim Brotherhood was up to. Thus we can only conclude that Islamization is part of the Deep State’s plan for the deconstruction of Western Civilization.

As the teens wore on, my cynicism and disillusionment about our government got worse and worse. I had started out with the naïve idea that there were decent people among our political leaders who really were attempting to do their best for the country. However, the true state of affairs eventually became ineluctable: corruption and malevolence were (and are) the norm, from the lowest to the highest levels of government. There are a few very rare exceptions, but they play no meaningful role in steering the ship of state.

The five years since Donald Trump stormed onto the political scene have really clarified the extent of the evil rot that has eaten out the core of our political and cultural institutions. The investigation and impeachment of Mr. Trump revealed the true purpose of the Patriot Act. And last fall’s election showed that the Deep State now has full control over the counting of the votes, so that no future elections will show any results other than those they intend. Diehard Republicans who are salivating over the midterms or 2024 are the most clueless of all. If they haven’t yet realized the nature of our new totalitarian dystopia, they probably never will. There’s no voting our way out of this.

So here we are, twenty years later. Afghanistan has reverted to what it was in 2001, except with much better roads, airfields, telecommunications, and surveillance equipment. We just handed the country over to the mujahideen we overthrew back then, lavishing upon them such quantities of state-of-the-art munitions and equipment that they will be the most powerful jihad army ever assembled, courtesy of the United States of America.

Here at home we are entering the full Corona despotism that the paranoid cynics among us have been predicting ever since the start of the “pandemic”. Since I intend to remain unjabbed, by this time next year I don’t know whether I’ll be able to get medical treatment, or eat in a restaurant, or even shop in a supermarket. By September 11, 2022 I might be unable to post a 9-11 commemoration, even if I wanted to.

I remember the ubiquitous “Never Forget” banners that popped up all over the place after 9-11. I didn’t forget.

I remember the “Let’s roll!” spirit that emerged. I rolled as best I could.

I remember when George W. Bush promised to hunt down the evil perpetrators and bring them to justice. And he did manage to round up quite a few of them and stash them in Gitmo until they were released to become ministers in the new government of Afghanistan.

Crossing the Rubicon

Our English correspondent Seneca III sends his take on the impending Great Reset, as seen from a British perspective.

Crossing the Rubicon

by Seneca III

(Agamemnon) …I risked a snub. ‘Why are we doing it, sire?’

Atreus paused in his pacing and supported himself with an arm outstretched to a colonnade’s crimson pillar. Sunken blue eyes examined me closely. ‘Apart from material gain I have two purposes. First, by expanding our territory to make Mycenae Achaea’s paramount power. Second, to close the coast to seaborne Dorians infiltrating across the Gulf.’

‘They are crossing in numbers, sire?’ Bunus inquired.

‘The movement’ said Atreus grimly, ‘has attained the proportions of a mass immigration. They land and take to the mountains, where they reinforce the Goatmen. If we don’t soon stop it we will be embroiled in a ceaseless war of attrition. And not Mycenae alone. Every civilised city will likewise suffer.’

Heroes shook doubtful heads. Some smiled behind their hands. Goatmen raids and counter-raids had become a way of life, a competitive military exercise to keep warriors on their toes, a salutary irritant like blistering a horse. None conceived them a major menace.

Atreus’ far-seeing vision proved everybody wrong.

— From ‘Warrior in Bronze’ by George Shipway. First published by Peter Davis Ltd 1977, Copyright © George Shipway 1977.

Do nations commit suicide without ever realising they are doing so? Doubtless they do. I look around me these days and I see and hear of things happening throughout the West that I could never have imagined even in my darkest dreams.

Whilst I appreciate that life and culture are both dynamics and the evolution of human social-political organisation is a continuous process, I see nothing that would encourage me to think this current vector will in any way lead to a better world and way of life. It would appear that the people of Britain and Europe, invaded from without and betrayed from within, have become so scared of losing what material things they have accumulated that they do not comprehend the actual horrors of the poverty, strife and lack of any personal freedom that Multiculturalism and the Great Reset will bring.

They appear to have given up all hope of holding onto the freedoms that our ancestors purchased for us with their blood. Rather, they have chosen to quietly sink into quasi-servitude, afraid to fight for that which is ours, ours to hand on to our children, not to anyone else. They huddle around the warm fire of history hoping for better times and doing nothing to counteract the increasingly threatening noises in the darkness behind them.

In essence, Britain is being conquered by a cabal of governing cliques who are determined to destroy our whole way of life. The rulings coming out of Westminster, Edinburgh and Cardiff, initiated or parroted by an equally treacherous media, are carefully devised to disenfranchise long-heritage native Caucasian citizens and foreclose any effective resistance to our ethnic cleansing.

They have organised it in such a way that our once green and pleasant land has been fragmented by an invasive horde of predatory alien cultures and primitive belief systems encouraged, enabled and supported by our own political, spiritual, corporate and civil institutions. Metaphysically speaking, we are being subjected to the ideological equivalent of a scorched earth policy. Popes, Archbishops and other princes of the Christian Church have close-ranked with and genuflected before the purveyors of a barbaric political power system founded on atrocity and slavery several centuries ago and maintained thereby to this day.

By effecting this sedition through innocuous pinpricks over a period of decades they have induced a terminal osteoporosis of that conceptual skeleton to which the sinews of a strong, functional society must be anchored. Thus, it is inevitable that the full extent of our weakened condition will only become apparent when one straw too many finally breaks our back, and by then both the will and the means to resist will have been sapped, and the complacent masses will find themselves unarmed and unorganised, naked in the face of their enemies.

Europe Under Assault — What people have been saying

Joe Benedict Biden

It’s always interesting to get a non-American viewpoint on American politics. Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan is better-informed than most Europeans about what goes on here in the USA, so his insights are entertaining as well as instructive.

Joe Benedict Biden

by H. Numan

I normally don’t write a lot about the USA, but sometimes I have to. The humiliating surrender in Afghanistan is such an occasion. Surrender? Yes. It’s not a withdrawal with some minor hiccups when you leave $85 billion worth of equipment behind, and willingly throw your allies to the wolves. Actually, this is a follow-up to the article I wrote when the Biden victory was confirmed. It’s a lot worse than you think.

Benedict Arnold merely tried to sell West Point. Joke Biden actually sold the United States. At this moment Afghanistan has one of the best-equipped armies in the world. That’s not a joke. The Taliban has more and better equipment than France, Germany or the UK. Plus plenty of money to buy whatever they lack. Oh, so they don’t have pilots to fly those Black Hawks? No problem, we hire some. How much equipment was left behind? Enough to give each and every Taliban fighter his own truck, plus a couple of rifles.

Was surrender necessary? Of course not. Portugal had the same problem after their Carnation Revolution in 1974. The revolutionary government dissolved the Portuguese colonial empire overnight. They did it as it should be done: first they evacuated civilians. Next they evacuated everything remotely possible, including toilets, water taps and bathtubs. Then they withdrew their military to the last airport, while keeping a vigilant heavily armed guard. The withdrawal was finished in a couple of weeks. Nobody (Portuguese or otherwise) was killed or even hurt. That’s how you do it.

However, that was not what the caretakers of Biden — the man is clearly senile — wanted. They desired mayhem. Wanton destruction. Mass killings. Immense loss of prestige. This defeat is worse than the defeat in Vietnam, far worse. It will take another twenty years to get over it. If ever. Yes, it is that humiliating. Vietnam was a fairly developed country compared with stone age Afghanistan. They only wanted the foreigners out of their country. Contrast this with religious zealots who always talk about defeating the crusaders. They just defeated the most advanced, biggest, and professional army in the world. Surely Allah knows best!

I can understand something had to be left behind, but not on this scale. That is not “an act of God” (Allah?) or “a simple mistake”. This is intentional. Leave helicopters and aircraft behind? Why on earth? You can’t fly them out? Or should I say: the minders of Biden didn’t want them to fly out? Leave a few vehicles behind? No problem, understandable. But +40,000 light attack vehicles and +22,000 Humvees? That is not an accident. That is on purpose.

It gets even worse. A Black Hawk helicopter is loaded with state-of-the art technology. You can rest assured those helicopters already are being dissected and reverse-engineered in Beijing, Tehran and Moscow. If not this week, certainly the next. Next year Russia, Iran and China have their own copies flying. That’s excluding all the technology that can be found in left behind high tech equipment, such as night vision goggles and communication gear. Forget about any advanced American technology next year. By then Russia, Iran and China have reverse-engineered everything.

In one stroke the American advantage in everything is gone: no more technology advantage, and more importantly: you lost needlessly against a bunch of stone-age shepherds armed with blunderbusses. Remember 9-11? Oh, you got satellite technology? We got box cutters!

A Judicial Revolving Door for the Culture-Enriching Rapists of Lethbridge

Our Albertan correspondent DL sends this follow-up to last week’s report on the culture-enriching “grooming gang” of Lethbridge and Calgary.

The Insanity of Our Courts Continues

by DL

The Lethbridge Muslim “groomers” are being protected now by a publication ban on the details of their bail amounts and bail conditions. Alberta Provincial Court Judge Jerry Neil LeGrandeur issued bail for most of the Muslims on the sex-grooming charges, but applied a “publication ban” on the details of that bail issuance and its conditions.

You will notice in the stories below that Judge LeGrandeur, in ordering a publication ban, also ordered the accused to “surrender their passports”, which virtually guarantees these vile men are some of “Justin Trudeau’s Darling Refugees”.

This judicial lunacy of using unlawful leniency when dealing with refugees was manifest in Lethbridge, Alberta in 2016. That year Wijdan Yasir, a Pakistani National, had sexually assaulted three women in the swimming pool of the Holiday Inn hotel in Lethbridge, Alberta.

Wijdan Yasir was released on a $1,000 “no cash bail” by Chief Crown Prosecutor D. Vaughan Hartigan. Wijdan Yasir jumped his bail twice and failed to appear, and in spite of his criminality on the repeated breach of his bail conditions, Yasir was re-released back into the community before his trial, again by Chief Crown Prosecutor D. Vaughan Hartigan.

Before his trial on the sex assault charges, Wijdan Yasir finally fled to Pakistan, where he remains to this day. Out of reach of Canadian courts, out of reach of justice.

Chief Crown Prosecutor Vaughan Hartigan was promoted to the Alberta Court of Queens Bench as a sitting judge.

Incredibly, in spite of Wijdan Yasir fleeing the country after being released on a “no cash bail”, as detailed in “Story Two” below, Alberta PCJ Judge Jerry LeGrandeur still allowed one of these current Muslim sexual predators to be released on a $2,500 “no cash bail”.

This is the totally dangerous, incompetent, negligent, corrupt and politically activist insanity of our justice system in Canada.

This cannot be tolerated.

Merkel’s Little Shop of Horrors

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this op-ed from Politically Incorrect:

Merkel’s balance sheet in one word: CATASTROPHE!

by Martin E. Renner

Shortly before the federal election on September 26th, which is truly groundbreaking for the future of our country, voters are faced with a dilemma.

If you believe the current polls, it almost doesn’t matter which old party you vote for: CDU/CSU, SPD and GRÜNE will each receive something around 20 percent and FDP and LINKE to the left or right of the party political uniformity will tip the scales.

Some voters who act tactically make it the premise of their voting decision to absolutely prevent an increase in power for the Greens. The classic left-wing camp is pursuing the same goal towards the CDU/CSU. These “tacticians” have only one thing in common: they all have — for whatever reason — missed the realization that the old political camps are in complete disintegration.

MPs are only extras in the party and democracy theater

For a long time now, the majority of high-ranking political statists are no longer concerned with making fundamental and directional political decisions.

Votes are one thing above all else: they are of crucial financial importance for the parties. So not with regard to the future of our country. But definitely for the future of the parties and their respective mandate-related and personalized hierarchies within the parties.

The parties have come together amicably on almost all key issues relating to the political and social future of our country. During her 16-year management, the former FDJ secretary, who was excellently trained in Marxist-Leninism, formed the “New Unity Party of Germany (NED)” behind the theater curtain of democracy.

For sixteen years the former old parties tolerated and allowed Merkel to stage her destructive work. Year after year, policy field after policy field. Even if Merkel was and is the head and acting director of the destructive work carried out on our homeland and our nation, all the old parties represented in the German Bundestag and their figurants (theater language for extras) have to shoulder a considerable part of the responsibility.

Merkel’s work of destruction. A drama in many acts:

Energy transition and phase out of nuclear power

In the 2009 election campaign, Merkel advocated the “phasing out” of nuclear power. Merkel originally wanted to suspend the phase-out of nuclear power begun in 2001 by the red-green predecessor government and delayed it for an indefinite period of time. On March 11, 2011, the seaquake struck off the coast of Japan. The resulting tsunami led to the well-known reactor accident in Fukushima, Japan.

The Chancellor, who once again acted purely opportunistically, shone with a real somersault. Diametrically opposite the original course and without necessity, the final phase-out of nuclear power was decided.

Since then, the “Renewable Energy Law” has been amended and tightened several times. This not only brings us today the progressive destruction of our cultural landscapes, but above all the highest electricity prices worldwide and the lowest full-load backup. With all the consequences for business and consumers. Even so, Merkel turned out to be the most powerful state leader with a green primer — worldwide.

The Narrative is Crumbling

The video below is an excellent compilation of various Corona- and vax-related clips. I’ve already watched most of the videos excerpted here, but it’s chilling to see them all together like this. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for uploading this video:

The video was produced by the sponsors of today’s Nationwide Rally for Freedom in Adelaide. I didn’t learn about the event until late last night, right about the time it was getting underway, so I couldn’t publicize it ahead of time.

It’s the wee hours of Sunday morning now in Adelaide. I haven’t heard any news yet about how it went. Our Aussie readers are invited to check in here when they wake up and leave reports and links to the day’s events in the comments.

The Triumph of the Taliban

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from the German site JournalistenWatch:

Triumph of the Taliban: The More Afghan refugees, the more Islamic sleeper terrorists

August 18, 2021

The security-political consequences of the Taliban triumph are for Germany perhaps graver than the refugee crisis in 2015, when the Merkel government, in oath-breaking irresponsibility, out of naïve humanitarianism, flooded the country with millions of people whose intentions and background were, in most cases, not known. Because the change of power in Kabul conjures up exactly the horror scenes that were fought there for 20 years and gives jihadists worldwide a tailwind.

After the terror attacks in New York, the West moved to the Hindu Kush — under the motto “War on Terror”, contradictory in itself because they were crooked and utopian words from the start. Germany, which under the then-Schröder government negligently and hastily declared “unconditional solidarity” with the USA, made its contribution. Then the terror was fought; but in the last few years, in which Berlin negotiators dealt with the Taliban in Doha, even more so now after the foreseeable takeover of power, the important lesson from the RAF [Red Army Faction] “You don’t negotiate with terrorists” has become obsolete. That yesterday the political leader of the Taliban, Mullah Baradar, was flown to Afghanistan from exactly where Merkel’s diplomats chatted diplomatically in air-conditioned luxury offices with the barbarians and where Germany will play in the World Cup next year, could not be more symbolic than the breaches of German morals and consistency.

Actually, the Taliban are now being made socially acceptable: The pseudo-pragmatism of a pathetic and spineless appeasement, which the despondent cowards of the West advise as conflict and confrontation readiness, will mean that the West will serve them just as it did with the Iranian mullahs. And even when Germany “suspends” its development aid payments (which flowed unchecked until last month, especially into the private box of the fleeing ex-president, Ashraf Ghani, who absconded with $164 million), one can assume that it will soon bubble up again. The Taliban have made a clever contribution to PR here, the generous promise to protect “women’s rights” (in conformance with sharia, you understand), and suddenly under the eyes of the public render themselves harmless. With the softened political amateurs, something like that resonates.

“Dialogue readiness” with the Taliban as with the Mullahs

This is entirely in the interest of the Holy Warriors, who, due to their own inability, are now using it as an argument to remain “dialogue ready”. Because the de facto hostages, among whom, are still hundreds of German and Afghan ex-Bundeswehr [German army] local forces, as well as diplomats and co-workers of aid organizations stuck in Afghanistan, and in addition, the Taliban also got a huge weapon arsenal free of charge, and have an ideal negotiating position.

In addition: In the future Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, the Stone Age warriors also have learned since 2001: They don’t need open confrontation anymore, rather, thanks to the suicidal naïveté of the West, they have long since placed their fifth column in the Western kuffar states, more effective than any military success or any secret intelligence infiltration would have allowed. Over half a million Afghans live in Germany alone, a large number of whom have been “Merkel guests” for the last five or six years. Nobody knows how many of them are submarines connected to the Taliban or other extremist Islamist groups.

It is characteristic of these sleepers to remain inconspicuous for years, and then be activated when necessary. And now, with the recent fall of the country, nobody can say how many of the Afghans reaching Germany are terrorist time bombs. This is not about prejudice or general suspicion, rather about a fully objective and sober consideration of the facts, which touches on our direct security interests. The day before yesterday, Interior Minister Seehofer counted about five million possible refugees, but even if it is only a tenth of that, this is sufficient to be the final straw for Germany, not only for integration and migration policy, but for becoming an Islamic high-risk area with 365-day critical terror incident alert status.

The Globalist Grooming Gang

Dr. Reiner Fuellmich is a German lawyer and politician who leads a regular podcast called Corona Ausschuss (“Corona Committee”). The following video is the first of three excerpts from a recent podcast by the group.

In this segment of the video Dr. Fuellmich interviews Ernst Wolff, a journalist and author who specializes in the economics of globalism. Mr. Wolff has researched the labyrinthine connections among various globalist groups, paying special attention to Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum. In this clip he talks about the leadership training groups associated with the WEF that groom promising candidates for positions in global governance. In a striking coincidence, the Western leaders who play the most prominent roles in the authoritarian responses to the Wuhan Coronavirus have all passed through these WEF leadership training sessions.

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:

The Jihad to Join German Public TV?

The Socialists and the Greens in Hamburg want to bring Islamic zealots into the supervisory council for German public television. Bear in mind that this is hardly a marginal position: the Greens will almost certainly be part of the new government when Angela Merkel’s party (“The Union”, CDU/CSU) collapses after the next general election.

Resolution in Hamburg: SPD [Socialists] and Greens want to bring Islamists into NDR broadcasting council

by Björn Stritzel

You spread anti-Semitic and Islamist agitation — and now representatives of these associations are supposed to control the television program of the NDR [Norddeutscher Rundfunk, Northern German Broadcasting]?

The government parliamentary groups SPD and Greens have submitted an application to the Hamburg parliament calling for the “NDR Broadcasting Council to be geared even more closely to the diversity of society”. The application states that the city of Hamburg has already committed itself in contracts with the DITIB regional association Hamburg and the Shura to “work in negotiations on the state media contracts to ensure that these religious communities are represented accordingly on supervisory boards such as the NDR broadcasting council.”

The Broadcasting Council is the highest supervisory body of North German Broadcasting. Here, of all places, are Islamists supposed to move in?

Ditib, the Turkish-Islamic Union of the Institute for Religion [Turkish: Diyanet İşleri Başkanlığı; German: Türkisch-Islamische Union der Anstalt für Religion], is subordinate to the Turkish religious authority Diyanet. Their representatives repeatedly attract attention with anti-Semitic attacks: The Diyanet recently tweeted while Hamas terrorized Israeli civilians with rockets: “The baby killer Israel must be stopped as soon as possible.” The “Islamic Center Hamburg” (IZH) is also represented in the Shura, the “Council of Islamic Communities in Hamburg”. According to the Hamburg Office for the Protection of the Constitution, the IZH is an important institution of the Iranian mullah regime. “The position of the head of the IZH is traditionally occupied by a supporter of the Iranian state doctrine and the Islamic revolutionary goals. He is considered the representative of the revolutionary leader Khamenei in Europe.”

Mohammad Hadi Mofateh (55), the current head, is, according to the intelligence agencies, a “well-trained representative of the current regime in Tehran” who served in the terrorist revolutionary guards. While IZH officials used to support the anti-Semitic Quds March, which called for the destruction of Israel, it was canceled last year due to the corona situation. Instead, according to the Protection of the Constitution, a “Shiite extremist with close ties to the IZH” held an online event on Quds Day. The LfV Hamburg has been reporting on the IZH for three decades because of “the knowledge about efforts against the free democratic basic order”. And such Islamists should now control the broadcasting council of the NDR?
