The Nightmare of Hyperinflation is Coming

Our Bangkok correspondent H. Numan extrapolates from our present fiscal woes to something more grievous and possibly terminal.

The nightmare of hyperinflation is coming

by H. Numan

He who doesn’t learn from history is doomed to do it all over again. We haven’t learned a lot from history, and are going to make the same mistakes. However, history never repeats itself. It’s always different. One of the reasons is that people tend to look at history, and think: ‘I wouldn’t have done that. How stupid!’ That’s looking back with 20/20 hindsight. You know the problem, and know what didn’t work back then. Most people think our ancestors were really stupid and they themselves are very smart. No, they weren’t, and you aren’t.

We’re about to make the same mistakes all over again. The current dogma is that Hitler was extreme right-wing and the treaty of Versailles was too harsh. Both assumptions are wrong. Disastrously wrong, as you will find out.

Let’s start with Hitler. He didn’t come out of thin air. He became politically active in 1919. Hitler wasn’t extreme right-wing; he was a socialist. His ideas, many of them, were mainstream in Germany at the time. The Germany army started planning rearmament right after (probably before) signing the treaty of Versailles. All Hitler did, once he gained power, was to speed it up and drop any pretenses. All Germans into a greater Germany (‘Heim ins Reich’) was something every German wanted, left and right. The German army was already planning to conquer the east in the future. That’s why they didn’t have a problem with Hitler’s Lebensraum policy. At first together with Poland, only later they switched to conquering Poland first. Before attacking the USSR, that is. Either way, large swaths of Poland were originally German. They would have reconquered it anyway. With or without Hitler.

Hitler himself was a racist communist. Not my words. His own words. He wrote in Mein Kampf, pages 406-407, that National Socialism differs from Communism only in its racism. Take away racial ideology from Nazism, and you’ve got communism.

Now the treaty of Versailles. World War One ended in three treaties: Versailles (Germany), Trianon (Austria-Hungary) and Lausanne (Ottoman empire). The treaties of Trianon and Lausanne were really harsh. They literally drew and quartered those empires into little pieces. Versailles was as lenient as it could be. Germany lost some territory, had to pay a steep penalty and was restricted in her armed forces. Compared with the other treaties almost a slap on the wrist. Don’t forget the Allies made huge sacrifices. Settling for anything less was not possible; their electorates would never have accepted that.

On the other hand — something not only the Germans tend to overlook — we have the treaty of Brest-Litovsk (March 3, 1918), which ended the war on the Eastern Front in favor of Germany. That was a real diktat. It was harsh to the max, so harsh that the USSR didn’t want to sign it. Kein Problem, said the German army. Then we simply go on. So they did, and added more demands. The USSR understood they had two options: take it or leave it. They took it. If you are merciless yourself, you can’t ask for mercy.

What you probably don’t know is that Germany, long before the war began, had the most developed welfare state of the time. Not only that, the German parliament was predominantly left-wing, with very strong labor and communist parties. They didn’t have any influence, mind you. Bismarck started with social laws, so they couldn’t. Not because Bismarck was a socialist, far from it. Better to give a little now instead of being forced to give more later on was his policy.

The German plan was to saddle the Allies with massive demands and make them pay for the war, plus a little extra. The problem was they lost that war. Experts have calculated they couldn’t make any profit out of the war. The costs were simply too high. Just like the Allies in the Versailles treaty, they would have to settle for something more realistic. However, that is moot. They lost. The result was a very expensive welfare state and massive war debts.

Open Letter From Active-Duty French Soldiers: “Civil unrest is simmering in France and you know it perfectly well”

Below is a second open letter from members of the French military, this time from active-duty servicemen and -women. It takes courage to sign one’s name to such a document and be willing to face the disciplinary consequences.

This letter serves as a sequel to one signed by retired generals that was published a couple of weeks ago. The text was once again posted at Valeurs Actuelles. It’s not clear how many signatories it had, but I’ve read that there were 2,000.

Once again we owe a debt of gratitude to Nathalie for the translation:

Mr President,
Ladies and Gentlemen of the Ministries, members of Parliament, general officers, and to all whom it may concern

The seventh stanza of La Marseillaise[1], known as “the children’s stanza” is no longer sung, though it has much to teach us. Let it speak for itself:

“For when we enlist as soldiers, our elders will have departed
There, shall we find their dust and the traces of their virtues
We hanker less to survive them than share their resting place
We shall have the sublime pride of avenging them or joining them in death”

Our elders are combatants who have earned respect. They are, for example, those old warriors whose honour you have trampled in the past few weeks. It is those thousands upon thousands who served France, who signed a tribune full of common sense, those soldiers who gave the best years of their lives to defend our freedom, obeying your orders, to wage your wars or implement your budgetary restrictions, whose honour you have defiled even when the people of France offered them their full support. Those people who fought against all the enemies of France; you called them factious when their only crime was to love their country and weep over her all too obvious decline.

In those conditions, it behooves us who have recently entered into a military career to step into the limelight and tell the truth and nothing but the truth.

We are those whom the news outlets named the “Generation of Fire[2]“. We are military men and women, on active duty, from all ranks and forces and with the widest range of opinions, and we love our country. This is our only pride. And even as the law forbids us to express ourselves openly, nonetheless we cannot remain silent.

Afghanistan, Mali, the Central African Republic, or elsewhere, a number of us has come under enemy fire. Some have lost comrades. They have risked their skins to destroy the Islamic foe you bend over backwards to accommodate on our soil.

Most of us have taken part in Operation Sentinel[3]. We saw with our own eyes the abandoned “banlieues”[4]; we have witnessed the permissive tolerance of the authorities for crime and delinquency. We have been targeted by several religious communities who sought to use us as their own instrument and for whom France means nothing, nothing but an object of derision, something to be loathed and even hated.

We marched on the 14th of July[5] in the military parade. And for months the authorities demanded that we be wary of this well-meaning, diverse crowd, which was cheering us because we represent them; we were forbidden to wear our uniforms whilst on the streets, making us into potential victims, on a soil we are nonetheless perfectly able to defend.

Yes, our elders are right, and their whole letter is right, in its entirety. We witness the violence in our cities and in our villages. We can see communitarianism[6] becoming entrenched in the public space and in public debates. We can see the hatred of France and her history becoming the norm.

The New Improved Multicultural Germany

Hellequin GB has translated three articles from PolitikStube on migration-related news from Germany.

The first article reports on Germany’s front-runner status in the “asylum” race:

Germany leads the way in asylum applications in the first quarter

With over 26,000 asylum applications in the first quarter of this year, Germany is the front-runner in the EU. In contrast, Estonia accepted eleven and Hungary only eight asylum applications.

“The figures come from a confidential status report by the EU Commission on the current migration situation,” reports Welt am Sonntag and refers to previously unpublished figures from the EU asylum authority EASO (European Asylum Support Office).

It also emerges that, according to the document, 41% of applicants in Germany are Syrians, followed by Afghans (14%) and Iraqis (7%).

This outrage, according to which Germany receives by far the greatest number of asylum applications in Europe, must be ended immediately. In addition, incentives in the German asylum procedure — for example, excessively long procedures, access to the labor market before recognition, excessive social benefits, failed deportations — that primarily attract asylum seekers within the EU to Germany must be removed.

The second article concerns the abandonment of criminal proceedings investigating official corruption in the awarding of asylum status to applicants:

Criminal proceedings against the former head of the Bremen refugee office stopped

It all started in October 2017, when a forged (Asyl) Decision from the Bremen branch of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF [Bundesamt für Migration und Flüchtlinge]) in Hesse emerged. In the spring of 2018, the public prosecutor began to investigate. The suspicion: The former head of the migration authority, together with several lawyers, wrongly helped hundreds of asylum seekers to obtain positive decisions. The public prosecutor’s office was investigating violations of official secrecy, data falsification and taking advantage.

Now the Bremen regional court has ruled, and the proceedings against the former head of the Bremen BAMF branch office have been discontinued against payment of €10,000. In September 2019, the Bremen public prosecutor’s office initially listed 121 alleged crimes that the ex-head of the agency and two lawyers allegedly committed. One of the investigators’ central allegations was that they illegally prevented foreign clients of the lawyers from being deported or improved their residence status.

Uwe Witt, chairman of the AfD [Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany] parliamentary group in the Labor and Social Affairs Committee of the German Bundestag: “The Bremen example clearly shows how lawyers, senior officials and the judiciary work together to smuggle asylum seekers into our social system. The judgment of the regional court strongly reminds me of the saying “One crow does not prick the other’s eye.”

And who has to pay for it? The German taxpayer.

The final article concerns the German government’s questionable official statistics on the number of Muslims in Germany:

French Generals: If Nothing is Done, Civil War Will Come

On April 21 an open letter signed by twenty retired French generals was published. It warns about the imminent danger to the Republic if action is not taken to reverse the establishment of areas of France that are no longer governed by French law.

The first of the signatories is none other than General Christian Piquemal, the former commander of the Foreign Legion. Longtime readers will remember Gen. Piquemal from back in 2016, when he was arrested after speaking at a PEGIDA rally in Calais. Some sort of pressure was brought to bear against him — I suspect threats against family members — and he was forced to recant his remarks. However, he didn’t retire permanently from the Counterjihad scene, and spoke out again in 2017.

See these previous posts about Gen. Piquemal:

Last week’s open letter has been published at a number of French-language websites; the version below was translated from a copy posted at Valeurs Actuelles.

The original is in the grandiloquent formal style that the French reserve for important and solemn occasions. A machine translation doesn’t do justice to it, so I’ve been waiting for a manual translation by a native speaker. The translator remarked that “A machine translation would have produced two big contresens and a rather flat style.”

We owe Nathalie a debt of gratitude for undertaking this major translation:

Mr. President,
Ladies and gentlemen of the government,
Ladies and gentlemen of the Parliament,

The hour is one of great peril: France is in the greatest danger and she is assailed on all sides by a number of mortal threats. We, who, though retired, shall ever remain soldiers sworn to our duty to France, cannot remain indifferent to the fate of our beautiful country.

Our tricolour flags aren’t mere pieces of cloth, they symbolise the tradition of those who, across the ages, and whatever their faiths and colour of their skin, have served France and given their lives for her. On those flags are written in letters of gold these words: “Honour and Fatherland”[1]. Our honour today lies in the denunciation of the crumbling disintegration of our motherland.

— A disintegration whose only goal, via a certain anti-racism, is to create on our soil a discontent, even a hatred between communities. Today, some speak of racialism, indigenism[3], de-colonial[4] theories; but through those words we know them: racial war is the ultimate aim of those hateful fanatics. They hold our nation in utter contempt; they loathe her culture, her traditions and want to see her crumble to dust by annihilating her Past and her History. That is why they are so keen, through the destruction of statues, on besmirching great soldiers and statesmen of old, by analysing words that were written centuries ago.

— A disintegration of the land itself, where Islamists and the hordes from the Projects[5] carve out their own territories where our Constitution is disregarded and alien dogmas hold sway. Yet each and every Frenchman, whatever his belief or non-belief, should be able to call every inch of the territory home; there cannot and must not be any town, any neighbourhood where the law of the land no longer applies.

— A disintegration, for hatred triumphs over fraternity when, as the French people, wearing yellow jackets, demonstrate in the streets to express their despair, the authorities wield the forces of law enforcement as auxilliary forces and scapegoats.

This when hooded agents provocateurs smash shops and sometimes threaten these same police forces. Even though the latter are acting under the orders, sometimes contradictory, of you who give those directives.

The menace grows more formidable, and violence grows stronger with each passing day. Who could have predicted ten years ago that a teacher would one day be beheaded as he left work? But we, who serve the Nation, who have always been ready to lay down our lives for her, as our duty demanded of us as soldiers, cannot possibly remain idle spectators when faced with such acts.

It is thus the duty of those who govern our country to gird their loins and eradicate those perils. To do so often requires nothing more than enforcing existing laws, without pusillanimity. Do not forget that, like us, an overwhelming majority of our fellow citizens are angered by your shilly-shallying and your guilty silences.

Covid and the Great Reset — Together Creating Fear… and Resistance

The UK, like most of the Western world, is still under lockdown. Our English correspondent Seneca III sends his observations on the current COVID dystopia in his homeland.

Covid and the Great Reset — Together Creating Fear… and Resistance

by Seneca III

A global anti-lockdown and anti-mask resistance movement is evolving. On Saturday 20/3/2021 in the UK, Australia, Holland, Belgium, France, Austria, Germany, Japan, Italy, Switzerland, Denmark, Canada, Serbia, Croatia, Ukraine and many other locations[1] people were marching and peacefully demonstrating that they have had enough of the misguided, inept and draconian government responses to the SARS-CoV-2 viral epidemic.

Unfortunately, on Sunday the 21st another protest in no way connected with the marchers took place in Bristol, UK, (and again on Monday). They bore no resemblance to those on Saturday. It was the usual Rent-a-Mob event and when the police attempted to close it down riot, property destruction and the torching of police vehicles was the mob’s Pavlovian response. On Sunday twenty police officers were injured in the process, some seriously… it reminded me more of Portland, Oregon, than the pleasant English mercantile city I had known before its transition into a Marxist-Socialist satrapy and subsequent destabilising enrichment.

Video recordings of the worldwide events on Saturday, including in London, show no signs of aggression or vandalism and the police who accompanied them were simply controlling traffic and escorting the marchers safely. My greatest fear is that more events such as that in Bristol will be misinterpreted and conflated with those genuine, peaceful marchers, thus diluting the support of otherwise sympathetic non-participants and encouraging governments to continue their oppression.

It must be widely understood that the Bristol rabble were a different animal. Some of them appeared to be yet more criminal thugs from the BLM and XR stable. No doubt the anarchists of ANTIFA were out in force as well in pursuit of their objective, which is to create a state of chaos which they can then exploit at their leisure. It also appears that this scabrous crew were reinforced by contingents drawn from the underbelly of our society, a collection of cretinous lowlifes addicted to the adrenaline rush of free-range gratuitous violence, arson and momentary fame in some social media sinkhole.

Indeed, many of these moral and intellectual dwarfs should rightly be categorized as ‘Enemies of the State’ and closed down completely by the Powers That Be, not as a species with protected characteristics to be kneeled before and indulged in whatever mayhem they choose to inflict upon us.

By comparison, those who marched on Saturday constituted the genuine, law-abiding core of the resistance. They were perfectly normal people who are tired of the hysterical antics of their respective governments and just want to get on with their lives. They are seeking respite from the debilitating psychological byproducts of enforced lockdowns and the progressive physical and mental carnage affecting all age groups, particularly this current generation of young people who are still in the process of maturing and who could suffer long-term damage from prolonged low-level hypoxic oxygen deprivation caused by masking.

The desire of these people to live their lives free from the draconian edicts of their inept and often corrupted ruling classes, who appear attracted by the thought of some lucrative position in a ‘New World Order’, is purely intuitive in many cases, because the participants either don’t know of or fail to fully comprehend the horrors awaiting them in the Great Reset/New World Order project now being quietly implemented around them with the fortuitous assistance of an escaped bio-warfare agent.

Meanwhile, as the pressure mounts the British government seems not to understand that the power of an oppressed people can be a terrible thing when a significant percentage of the polis unites, breaks out of the trap with a single purpose and seeks relief from the excessive legislative and executive actions levelled by privileged power groups and their beneficiaries who are intent upon destroying the fundamental health, freedoms and futures of the citizenry. Those who marched on Saturday understand that their children are the ones who will have to pay the bills for this debacle and probably will have to fight for their ethnic survival as well if things are not corrected soon. That is a terrible burden to lay on future generations.

Political power addicts always tend to become over-endowed with false images of their own exceptionalism and privilege, and these misconceptions must be reined in from time to time by force if necessary. The reality is that hidden behind their faux public personas, their earnest entreaties whereby they demand of us and impose upon us things that we are told we must accept for our own good are a means to their ends, not ours.

The Camp of the Sane and The Camp of the Saints — A Book Review

Long-time readers will remember Max Denken, who contributed a number of essays here several years ago. Mr. Denken retired from the scene to write books about our civilizational crisis. Fjordman has kindly reviewed the first one for Gates of Vienna readers.

The Camp of the Sane and The Camp of the Saints — A Book Review

by Fjordman

It is not every day that you come across a book dedicated to the continued survival of an entire civilization. Yet the author Max Denken has written just such a text. He has previously written under the pen name Takuan Seiyo for dissident online publications such as Gates of Vienna, The Brussels Journal, The New English Review, Quarterly Review, Takimag and others. His well-written and carefully researched book about the future of European civilization is called The Camp of the Sane and The Camp of the Saints: Poland and the erosion of Western sanity, 2015—2020.

The title is a reference to The Camp of the Saints (“Le Camp des Saints”), a novel from 1973 by the French author Jean Raspail. It predicted a Third World mass invasion of Europe, causing the downfall of Western civilization. This process was compressed in time so that what might take fifty years in real life took fifty days in the book. In addition, the bulk of illegal immigrants in the novel came from India. Today, while immigration to Europe comes from every corner of the planet, much of it comes from the Islamic world and Africa.

Apart from that, the novel was remarkably prescient in describing the dysfunctional mindset of the modern Western world. We have become so wedded to unsustainable humanitarian ideals that we are mentally incapable of defending our national existence. When faced with millions of people coming from the global South, we simply raise a white flag and say that they are welcome to colonize our countries. At least, that is what our leaders and mass media do. The EU and Pope Francis react to illegal mass migration in the Mediterranean in almost exactly the manner described in Raspail’s book decades earlier. Europe risks committing suicide because of abstract humanitarian ideals and a Globalist ideology of open borders.

Jean Raspail died in June 2020, shortly before he would have turned 95. He lived to see his native France and other Western countries being partly overrun by migrants. Max Denken completed The Camp of the Sane in the summer of 2020, just as the author of The Camp of the Saints died. Western cities were then engulfed in Black Lives Matter protests, attacks on statues and European monuments and sometimes violent riots. Western mass media presented U.S. President Trump as an extremely evil man, as they had been doing continuously for five years. Some Western media said more positive things about the Communist dictator Fidel Castro when he died in November 2016 than they said about Donald Trump when he won free elections that some month.

Max Denken has Polish ancestry, has lived in California for many years and worked in other parts of the world. He considers the entire Western world to be deeply sick and heading for some form of collapse. This applies to North America as well as Western Europe. Against this crumbling Camp of the Saints, Denken pits what he terms The Camp of the Sane. Roughly speaking, this encompasses much of the eastern half of Europe, or at least the eastern quarter. Ironically, these are countries that were squeezed and bloodied between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union during the Second World War and endured generations of repressive Communist rule during the Cold War. Perhaps their recent historical experiences have provided these nations with a stronger resistance against ideological indoctrination.

Western Europe still has some brave political leaders such as Geert Wilders, Marine Le Pen and Matteo Salvini, but they may have emerged too late to save their countries from collapse. The Western world and what remains of its civilization are in freefall. Denken does not rule out the possibility that something sensible can be created in North America out of the disunited Multicultural mess that is present-day USA and Canada. However, he believes that the best future prospects for European civilization lie in Central and Eastern Europe.

The countries of Central and Eastern Europe no doubt believed that they had joined a sensible project for European cooperation and joint prosperity when they joined the EU. Some of them have come to realize that the increasingly repressive EU now resembles a cultural suicide pact. Money from the EU may seem tempting to nations that were left impoverished after decades of Communist rule. Yet these are silver coins laced with ideological poison. For 1400 years, the forces of Islam have been the collective enemy of the peoples of Europe. Now, the EU wants to force formerly independent European countries to take in Muslim immigrants.

Sometimes a Border is a Border, and Sometimes it Isn’t

The German government finds itself unable to control its borders when mobs of culture-enrichers from the Third World want to get in. But when the danger of the Wuhan Coronavirus is an issue with neighboring European countries, suddenly the borders become watertight.

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

In no time! 116 migrants flew into Germany last week, 122 yesterday and 155 today

It happens in no time; the aid operation must under no circumstances be endangered by the “dangerous” virus; the relocation to the German pandemic area is proceeding according to plan. Last week 116 people looking for supplies arrived in Hanover, 122 were flown in yesterday and 155 today.

As announced by the Federal Ministry of the Interior in Berlin, 25 families with 53 adults and 69 minors arrived in Hanover on February 24th, 2021. Today another 33 families with 70 adults and 85 minors, whose entitlement to protection has already been determined by the Greek government. The families are being taken in by the federal states of Berlin, Brandenburg, Hamburg, Hesse, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Saxony and Thuringia. Since April of 2020, Germany has taken in a total of 1,954 people from Greece.

As usual, the Federal Ministry of the Interior is keeping a low profile on the nationalities of those seeking care, while the Greek press published the origin of the 122 migrants: Afghanistan, Iran and Iraq. With the 155 migrants who arrived today, the nationalities are likely to be almost identical.

As a counterpoint, consider the following video (in English) from Red Pill Germany, which discusses the fact that the German government has no problem shutting the border with Czechia when the Corona crisis requires it.

Germans Just Showed Once Again That They Can Control the Borders If They Want To

So Here There Be Dragons! (Part VB)

The essay below is the final installment in a series by our English correspondent Seneca III. Previously: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3A, Part 3B, Part 4, Part 5.

So Here There Be Dragons!

by Seneca III

Part V B — Epilogue

Sentimental emotion amounts to, in the words of the philosopher Roger Scruton, “Look how noble is this feeling and how noble I am for feeling it”; it is essentially self-regarding and hostile to the truth that threatens its continuance.

Tried and tested ancient ideas such as the nuclear family, clearly defined genders and their roles in life, nationality, private property and freedom of thought and expression are rooted in tradition, culture, and history. These ideas are what have shaped us, and if they are cast aside we will become nothing but an amorphous, mindless, human blob to be shaped instead into whatever grotesquery the ascendant global power elites decide.

It might be argued that what they are attempting is, in the long term, the right thing, the logical thing, but by extension we intuitively know that this concept is being pushed before its time has come and thus such a forced imposition was doomed to failure even before it emerged. Those whose lust for personal power and wealth dwarfs any atrophied altruistic inclinations they might once have had, those who are fully compromised by lining their pockets with corrupted money, all fail to see and least of all understand the impracticalities of what they are attempting to achieve, because we are still too diverse a species, too stubbornly intransigent and too unwilling give up those gods we know in favour of a nascent entity we do not.

Consider the ongoing rollout of Smart Meters. If you combine SMs with electric vehicles you have the ability to control whether a person can or cannot travel beyond foot/bicycle range of their residence. Consider further the often mooted possibility of the abolition of cash and the imposition of only electronic and plastic transactions and you can see the potential for mass ‘non-personing’ and a clear road to serfdom. Note that despite my repeated refusals to permit the installation of a Smart Meter my electricity provider keeps insisting that I do so:

And, of course, there’s this little gem in the bottom right hand corner of the letter. No wonder they charge the moon for every miserable KWh:

And, just to top it off, our Overlords comfortably ensconced and richly rewarded in the Palace of Westminster are working towards instituting a legal requirement to wear a mask and display a vaccination certification if you wish to leave your house for any purpose whatsoever. Then they really will have the whole damn population incarcerated in a metaphorical Gulag Archipelago controlled by a brutalised, Common Purposed Police Force already fully trained and practiced in this sort of enforcement and backed up by civilian ‘Jobsworths’, ‘Covid Rules Enforcers’, most of whom are obviously semi-literate and semi-numerate highly paid thugs recruited by local councils from amongst the otherwise unemployable.

To add insult to injury, just over a week ago I went to my local Pub for a couple of pints and a chat with my friends. The furniture had been thinned out and rearranged to meet Covid rules and I ended up sitting in a wing chair next to a hot radiator and having a loud conversation with people sitting six feet away. Unfortunately, without thinking things through, I had hung my body warmer over the wing next to the radiator. Later, when it was time to go, I reached for my card in order to pay and found that the pocket the card was in had been tight up against the radiator and the card had curled up and was so distorted it could not be used. Thus did I end up spending an absolute nightmare of a week without plastic as I awaited a replacement card. Whilst I always carry sufficient cash for emergencies and was able to do my small local shopping unimpeded by the loss of the card, December is the month in which I have to renew both my car and house insurances and these days, as the providers will no longer accept payment by cheque, it must be done either online or by telephone.

You Have Less Than a Year

Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan sends this follow-up to his previous essay about the dystopian regime that now governs the Former United States since the Investiture of the Puppet last month.

You have less than a year

by H. Numan

Ladies and gentlemen, you’ve just witnessed a coup. I wrote about it a few days ago. Plenty of people still don’t understand that the rules of the game have changed. Permanently. So I’ll expand on my previous essay, in the hope that the message gets through. You have less than a year to correct the situation. This is a grim and very dark essay. If you can’t tolerate it, sorry. Better read something else. Don’t continue reading.

Let’s start with the coup. It certainly wasn’t a revolution. Revolutions are usually more violent or come with force to some extent. The Democrat Party didn’t do that. They planned, many years in advance, a fraud to gain full control. It was no accident that mail-in votes and harvested ballots gave Biden, now president for (the remainder of his) life, the presidency. The vote, in general terms, has been diluted for many years. You should have seen this coming — but nobody did. It’s not a coincidence that the DNC, wherever possible, wanted no ID checks and more ways to vote. Not because voter ID is racist, but because more people can vote the ‘right’ way. They have fought with success to give everybody they need a vote. Including dead people. The trick worked. Suddenly the bombshell exploded. Now it is too late.

Not really too late, but you have to act. Fast. REALLY fast! You do have an advantage over Nazi Germany, but a very small one. Biden and his DNC are not Hitler and the NSDAP. Hitler didn’t hesitate for a second to use extreme force, and built many concentration camps. As quickly as possible. Given their background, that is something Biden and the DNC will hesitate to do.

Why this coup? Well, despite my dislike for your Democrat Party, they are not Nazis. Socialist in some way? No doubt. But not — yet — true international socialists. At the moment the old party hacks control the party. All they wanted was to be in power forever. Now they are. Their major problem is to remain in power forever. And that requires a real socialist, or — as they will describe it — democratic policy. You have less than a year to stop it.

Biden is now in full control of your parliament, both houses. That means he can — and bloody well will! — write any kind of legislation he wants. Biden himself is not a Hitler. More like one of Hitler’s more slippery henchmen, like Martin Bormann. Always hovering in the background, filling his pockets. Just enough in the limelight to be noticed and to be powerful enough to hand out favors. But he definitely is no Hitler. Like Hitler, Biden will have to consolidate his power. That is a process he can complete in about one year. That’s all the time you have left. Less than a year. After that, better sign up for DNC membership. If they will still accept you.

Please don’t parrot empty meaningless slogans, such as: they can pry my guns from my cold dead hands. Very few people will actually do that. Pretty soon a new mass shooting incident will happen. No need to arrange for one; mass shootings happen several times every year in the USA. All the DNC has to do is wait for the next one. Then Harris Biden will act decisively and ban most handguns. Just about everybody will hand in their guns, without a fuss. That’s what happened in Australia in 1996. The government said: That’s enough. No more guns! It was enough, and there are no more guns in Australia. Why is it an empty slogan? Because most people like to live. Given the choice between handing in firearms or facing at least a very lengthy jail term, they choose handing in their weapons. If only because they have a family to take care of.

That is exactly what will happen, in a few months’ time. What about those ‘pry my gun’ people? Well, America is not Australia, and no longer democratic. America is now a Democratic Republic. Which means your police will simply send in a SWAT team, and blast them to kingdom come. Live on TV. It will be all over the media. Not as martyrs, but as brave police officers getting rid of dangerous hysterical fascists. The remainder of the pry-my-gun people will get the message and quietly turn in their guns. Willingly even, as the media will go apes**t about really dangerous fascists refusing to obey Big Biden the law.

An Open Letter to US Generals

The author of the following letter requested that he be identified only as a ‘US Air Force veteran’.

If China had invaded the USA and installed Beijing Biden, would you respond?

by a US Air Force veteran

In the 2020 election, Trump won overwhelmingly. Biden lost.

Anyone willing to look at the data can see this fact. If the Democrats had nothing to hide, they would welcome an open audit.

But the Democrats do have something to hide. They have blocked all efforts for an open audit.

Somehow big media, the digital giants, the Democratic voter fraud machine, and China got Beijing Biden, a man who appears to be on the CCP payroll, installed in the US presidency via a fraudulent election.

When I joined the military, I took an oath to defend the constitution of the USA from all enemies — both foreign and domestic.

Did you generals do the same thing?

Elections are an important part of the American system. Without real elections, we are a banana republic.

Trump’s, Sept. 2018 executive order on “Foreign Interference in American Elections” clearly spells out exactly what transpired during the 2020 election.

The Executive order also states what the US response should be.

DNI John Ratcliffe said: China interfered in the 2020 election. This fact alone triggers Trump’s executive order.

So, what happened? Why no response to a clear act of war?

If China had invaded the USA and installed Beijing Biden, would you respond? What’s the difference? (The Art of War: Sun Tzu)

Does it matter if the outcome is the same? We now have a CCP plant in the White House

I do not believe for a minute Trump gave up and accepted Beijing Biden as the winner.

I can imagine behind the scenes the Democrats and RINOs have put a lot of pressure on you generals. You control the guns. Without your support, Beijing Biden would not be in the presidency.

Trump left because you let the American people down. You supported a CCP plant in the presidency.

Mao said: “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.”

In America, political power is supposed to grow out of ballot boxes.

You generals need to do the job you swore an oath to do. Don’t be a bunch of Benedict Arnolds.

So Here There Be Dragons! (Part V)

The essay below is the sixth in a series by our English correspondent Seneca III. Previously: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3A, Part 3B, Part 4.

So Here There Be Dragons!

by Seneca III

Part V A — Dragons

“It has been frequently remarked, that it seems to have been reserved to the people of this country, by their conduct and example, to decide the important question, whether societies of men are really capable or not, of establishing good government from reflection and choice, or whether they are forever destined to depend, for their political constitutions, on accident and force.”

— Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers, Pub. J. & A. McLean, March-May 1788.

This is a period in history when the entire system under which we live is under attack. From within, disasters real and imagined, a deluge of disinformation and endemic corruption across the complete spectrum of the legislative, the executive and their super-wealthy bag carriers alters the whole perception of the present and future world around us, causing distress, fear, apprehension and even feral hatred for those who are bringing it about.

The worldview encompassed by each generation is developed and formed by the sources and veracity of information available at the time and according to which socio-political environment (community) the individual is exposed to and educated in. These sources and environments change regularly. Whilst it should be incumbent upon every thinking person to re-evaluate from time to time, this is not a particularly common practice, as original ‘indoctrinations’, for want of a better word, are very hard to dislodge or to pass on. Hence the so common in-family disagreements between generations that occur predominantly when the younger generation is in its teens and early twenties.

For example, an intergenerational battle now in progress in many households concerns the sly imposition of ‘gender dysphoria’ theory on young and old minds alike. In reality a very small percentage of gender dysphoriacs[1] are naturally transgender, but in the vast majority the condition has been deliberately induced for the purpose of destabilising the nuclear family unit.

The diagnostic label ‘gender identity disorder’ (GID) was used until 2013, but with the release of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition (DSM-5), the condition was renamed to remove the stigma associated with the term disorder. This is yet another example of muddying the waters in the cause of ‘Wokeness’ even before that counter-reproductive and societally destructive concept was imposed upon us.

Family activities aside, historically speaking major happenings, tectonic shifts in human life and affairs, do not appear to be measurably cyclic, but random, sometimes with subtle warning signs that tend to be ignored, and sometimes without warnings but with sudden, stunning ferocity. The great tsunami of 6,000 years ago that wiped out at least half of the small number of human inhabitants on the island of Britain and changed the shape of its East coast topography for many leagues inland is one prime example. The far better known and more recent Black Death which resulted in the deaths of 75-200 million people in Eurasia and North Africa is another, and both were natural disasters initiated by events beyond the hand and ken of man.

Between those two events, at the onset of the early Iron Age between 1200 and 1150 BC, an extinction event occurred, that of the late Bronze Age culture in and around the Mediterranean basin, an event the reasons for which remain open to debate, although there is some consensus that the causes were an unfortunate conjunction of both manmade and natural events.

But time moves on, and in the 20th century, still within the living memory of some, two world wars burst upon us, the first one driven by the arrogance of imperial dynastic power players, and the second by the inevitable consequences of national socialist ideology allied again with an unquenched thirst for conquest — motives easily ascribed to the proponents of the beguilingly deceptive memes ‘Build Back Better’ and ‘The Great Reset’, which are nothing more than totalitarian social re-engineering resurrected as a technological art form.

A recent modern example is the arrival of the Cambodian Khmer Rouge in 1975, its Year Zero project and the huge genocide that followed, which to this day remains totally inexplicable to those who do not understand that socialism in any of its many guises always ends up consuming itself and all about it.

Two further examples from the 20th century are second[2] five-year plan in Mao’s PRC (1958-1972) which resulted in 18-45 million deaths, making it the greatest famine in human history. Bear in mind that the People’s Republic of China is neither of or for the people and nor is it a Republic in any sense other than it doesn’t have an absolute monarch at its head (well, not in name, anyway).

Also, in the middle of the second five year plan, there emerged the Red Guards, a mass student-led paramilitary social movement mobilized and guided by Chairman Mao Zedong in 1966-1967 during the first phase of the Cultural Revolution, which he had instituted. According to a Red Guard leader, the movement’s aims were as follows:

Ornella Mariana: The Harlots of the Regime Have Enabled Islam

The following video features the Italian writer Ornella Mariana in an appearance on a TV talk show. The relative dearth of political correctness in the Italian media makes clips like this one a delight to watch.

Among the characters referred to by Ms. Mariana are:

  • Emma Bonino: Senator for Rome, former Minister of Foreign Affairs
  • Federica Mogherini: former Vice President of the European Commission and former Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs
  • Laura Boldrini: former President of the Chamber of Deputies

Many thanks to HeHa for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling.

The translator includes this note about the use of the phrase “female writer” at the opening of the video excerpt:

The Italian noun used here for “writer” is scrittrice, the feminine form (as “actress” is used for the feminine of “actor” in English), so the first two lines are about Mariani wanting to be identified using the masculine or neuter form and not the feminine form. In English the word might be something like “writress”.

“At the Precipice” — The Dire State We Are In

The following quotes were collected by Michael Copeland in 2013, but the collection has not previously been published.

“At the Precipice” — The Dire State We Are In

Compiled by Michael Copeland

  • “Europe… is at the precipice of obliteration.”
    — Jan Suzanne Krasner, American Thinker, 6 Apr 2013
  • In 1980, the Islamic Council of Europe laid out their strategy for the future — and the fundamental rule was never dilute your presence. That is to say, do not integrate. Rather, concentrate Muslim presence in a particular area until you are a majority in that area…
    Brussels Journal, 13 Jul 2006
  • The unthinkable barbarity of honor-killings along with rape, incest, slavery, pedophilia, and polygamy, are becoming commonplace in western democracies among Muslim populations.
    — Robert Neville, Logan’s Warning, 20 Dec 2010,
  • …I think of all the low-information voters we have; how immoral we have become; the massive welfare state; the contempt so many have for whites; and how fast we have deteriorated in the past 30 years!
    — Bluffcreek, comment on Michael Finch, FrontPage, 2 Feb 2013
  • We are divided as a people, flooded with illegal immigrants, crime is rampant, the welfare system is in full bloom, government spending is out of control…
    — bluffcreek1967, comment, FrontPage, “The End of the Republic?”, 18 Mar 2013
  • When the masses wake up and see the plot and how their leftist governments have betrayed them and how their treasonous liberal media have lied to them they will rise and Muslims will find no peace in Europe and in America.
    — Ali Sina, 19 Jan 2013
  • We should put a stop to this mass immigration of people coming from outside Europe, mainly Islamic countries, of people who cannot and will not adapt to our way of living in Western Europe.
    — Philip Claeys, Belgian MEP, www.rt.com, 28 Feb 2013
  • A new report from Oslo Norway’s Police Department on the number and nature of rapes it is experiencing is nothing short of stunning. Of the rape cases with identified perpetrators 100% are Muslim immigrants! By contrast Norway has recently welcomed 61,000 Catholic Polish workers — not a single one of whom is a rapist.
    www.sodahead.com, 7 June 2011
  • Last year 6,509 rapes were reported to the police in Sweden — the corresponding figure in Denmark was 392.
    — Ingrid Carlqvist, Jihad Watch, 6 Feb 2012
  • CJ   “Talking about England… well, they’ve already submitted”
    Mark   “They’re gone.”
    CJ   “Forget about it. They already have submitted. It’s all over. You can halt all the immigration you want to those countries [England and France] but it won’t matter, because they have a sufficient percentage of their population now, already, and with the next generations coming behind them they got all the numbers they need. They don’t have to import any more.”

  • England is lost.
    — BS77, FrontPage, “Muslim who raped 13 Year Old UK Girl”, 27 Jan 2013
  • First, I can say without hesitation that I hope never to return to Britain. I actually don’t see any point. Jews are targeted by massive anti-Semitism of both the social and physical varieties. Why would anyone Jewish want to live there?… there is no future for Jews in England.
    www.CarolineGlick.com, 21 Jan 2013
  • Asian boys coming up to me and saying “I’m gonna rape ya. And if you don’t go with me I’m gonna punch ya in the face with a knuckle-duster, and if ya don’t give me a blow-job.”… It’s happening to lots of girls… Every day… Yes … I feel intimidated by ’em, and… scared.
    — White English schoolgirl, 14, www.liveleak.com, 26 Jan 2011
  • Typically, the victims are white and non-Muslim, as is sadly known to the inhabitants of Blackburn, Burnley, Bradford, Blackpool, Keighley, Rochdale, Rotherham and Derby and other locations.
    www.durotrigan.blogspot.co.uk 5 May 2012
  • …the European project… was a conspiracy of the European elites against their own peoples: it is the literal truth.
    —Janet Daley, Telegraph, 27 Jan 2013
  • British kids are punished if they refuse to go on the school trip to the mosque.
    — emmi 29 Jan 2013, Logan’s Warning, 10 July 2011
  • “In Islam doesn’t it say you have to respect the law of the land you are living in?”
    “No, it doesn’t.”

    — Stacey Dooley and Muslim demonstrator on Channel 4 documentary on Luton
  • “The people of France will live under the Islamic movement, even if you don’t like it. We will collect the jizya poll tax.”
    — Muslim with loudspeaker, London, Jihad Watch 20 Jan 2013
  • Now there is no trace of any kind of community — that word so cherished by the Left. Instead [Acton] has been transformed into a giant transit camp and is home to no one.
    — Jane Kelly, Telegraph, 29 Jan 2013, Jihad Watch, 3 Feb

We Could Do Nothing, Being Sold

From time to time Saturday is Poetry Day here at Gates of Vienna, and today seems an appropriate occasion — given that it’s the first Saturday since the Investiture of the Puppet — to repost an old favorite by Edwin Muir. I’ve posted it at least twice in the past, but it’s worth revisiting.

I don’t know why people are complaining about the legitimacy of last November’s election. I mean, we got the best election money can buy* — what’s not to like?

As a matter of interest, I memorized this poem for my O-Level examinations when I attended the High School in Harrogate. Except for the odd preposition here and there, the text in my head seems to be intact some fifty-three years later:

The Castle
by Edwin Muir

All through that summer at ease we lay,
And daily from the turret wall
We watched the mowers in the hay
And the enemy half a mile away —
They seemed no threat to us at all.

For what, we thought, had we to fear
With our arms and provender, load on load,
Our towering battlements, tier on tier,
And friendly allies drawing near
On every leafy summer road?

Our gates were strong, our walls were thick,
So smooth and high, no man could win
A foothold there, no clever trick
Could take us, have us dead or quick.
Only a bird could have got in.
