Florence: “There Are Too Many Italians”

The following video shows an expedition deep into the heart of a no-go zone in Florence, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Once upon a time it was the jewel of Italy, second only to Venice, but now some of its neighborhoods are overrun with African addicts and criminals.

Culture-Enriching Knife Attack on a Little Girl in Wangen

A Syrian culture-enricher stabbed and seriously wounded a 4-year-old girl in the German town of Wangen. Because the perpetrator carried a Dutch passport, he is referred to as a “Dutchman” in many mainstream media accounts of the incident.

Syrian migrant stabs 4-year-old girl in supermarket

April 4, 2024

A foreigner stabs a little girl in broad daylight in tranquil Wangen. The 4-year-old had to undergo an emergency operation. Now further details about the attack have emerged.

Wangen. On Wednesday in Baden-Wuerttemberg, a 4-year-old girl was attacked and badly wounded by a Syrian migrant. According to what is now known, “the man suddenly attacked the 4-year-old girl and wounded her with a knife,” the police reported. The attack took place in Wangen in the district of Ravensburg.

A witness was able to disarm the attacker, who possesses a Dutch passport, and notify security forces. “The girl was immediately operated on and is now in stable condition,” the police state. According to initial findings by the investigators, there is no prior relationship between the child, who was with her mother, and the migrant.

Mayor shocked

The attacker was to be brought before a judge on Thursday. Whether the man was already known to police in Germany, a police spokeswoman, in response to an inquiry by Junge Freiheit, could not yet say.

Mayor Michael Lang was shocked. “That a child is suddenly attacked is something that shocks us all and leaves us unbelievably affected and dismayed.” The independent politician says that he knows the family of the victim. About 25,000 residents live in Wangen.

Jihad Attack at Antwerp Central Station

The video below is a follow-up to yesterday’s report about knife jihad in Antwerp. This clip seems pretty pointless to me, but I suppose it’s the best we can expect from the Belgian MSM.

Whose Face Will Be on the Trillion-Dollar Bill?

Some of the things that President Biden and the Democrat Party have been doing over the past few months are pretty bizarre, considering that this is an election year.

Hispanics and even blacks are shifting away from the Democrats. Young people — the parti-colored Zoomer TikTok generation — are increasingly drawn towards Donald Trump. The way things are going, there won’t be enough dump trucks available to haul in the “found” ballots required to put Joe Biden over the top on the night of November 5th. The Democrats are virtuosos at rigging elections, but even in the dystopian twilight of 21st-century America, elections can only be stolen at the margin. The race has to be at least somewhat close in order to pull off an effective steal.

The Democrat apparat seems utterly unconcerned with making sure the race is a tight one. One unpopular policy after another is being pushed — open borders, criminals released without bail, the promotion of sexual perversion, the war against the internal combustion engine, uniformed soldiers with pink hair mincing around in high heels…

And, to top it all off, there was the “Transgender Day of Visibility” on Easter Sunday. Don’t they even want to win the election?

Well, maybe they really don’t.

I’d been thinking along those lines for a while, and then last week I happened to read something similar at ZeroHedge, an essay saying that they’re going to let Trump win.

These are the key paragraphs:

Let Trump back in, and fight him on home turf — in the maze of the executive bureaucracy. Some of his backers have announced their intention to become politically competent in the event that he wins — but compared to the alternatives, that’s a very manageable risk.

More importantly: let Trump hold the bag for the all-but-guaranteed economic calamity of the next four years. The regime could skate for another decade if they succeed in pinning the collapse on a dangerous, erratic right-wing upstart. [emphasis added]

Everything I say here tonight is pure speculation. I’m not an expert on any of these matters, and especially not on financial issues. I’m just a reasonably well-informed layperson who reads a lot of information from diverse points of view.

It’s undeniable that the country is headed towards some form of fiscal calamity. As I mentioned last month, money-printing is being taken to new extremes:

I swore off making specific predictions after the previous great fiscal crisis in 2009, when my prognostications were so completely wrong. I never would have thought they could keep the racket going for another fifteen years, but here we are. The Powers That Be have managed to do a lot with derivatives and real estate bubbles.

But the debt graph can’t keep going up with a steadily increasing slope — it just can’t. Someday the pyramid scheme will come crashing down, and the chickens will come home to roost. Based on the current debt acceleration, it won’t be much longer. It might take a week; it might take a decade. But the chickens will be roosting relatively soon.

The thing is, the people who keep the Ponzi scheme afloat know exactly what’s coming. They know the money-printing tactic will eventually stop working. It’s a complex process, what with cryptocurrencies, CBDCs, derivatives, paper and digital “futures” of precious metals, and now the BRICS alternatives. Keeping those plates spinning must surely be a tricky business.

And the people in charge know that a collapse of the dollar will eventually come. In order enrich themselves fully, and assure themselves an unbroken hold on the levers of power, they will need to time the crisis carefully. At exactly the right moment they will topple the pillars supporting the dollar-based economy, after having thoroughly prepared the replacement system that will be built on the smoking ruins of the old one.

So which patsy will be nominally in charge when the house of cards comes tumbling down? Who will preside over the Great Collapse?

Whose face will be on the Zimbabwe-style trillion-dollar bill?

For a long time I thought Brandon was being set up as the fall guy. He was always obviously a disposable president, a non-re-electable senile geezer who could be pushed aside when he was no longer needed. The people who crafted his policies and wrote his speeches clearly didn’t try to make him more popular. I assumed that when the time was right, he would be gently eased out (and Kamala, too, although that part would be tricky), and a substitute such as Gavin Newsom or Big Mike installed to run in 2024, someone who was at least plausible enough that the election could be rigged on his behalf.

But it never happened. And the scripts that Brandon has been following have been so damaging to him that it’s obvious that his handlers don’t really want him to win re-election. It is intended that he go down in flames, taking the Democrat Party with him.

Knife Jihad in Antwerp

A culture-enriching Iraqi “youth” stabbed an elderly woman today on a train in Antwerp. There’s no word yet on whether the victim will be charged with racism and Islamophobia after she gets out of the hospital. Or maybe misgendering her attacker — that’s even worse.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from the Flemish Daily Het Laatste Nieuws:

Iraqi man who stabbed woman in Antwerp Central Station also attacked a police officer earlier this week. The woman (69) was injured but is out of danger.

April 4, 2024

In the Antwerp Central Station a stabbing incident took place today on a train. This is confirmed by the federal police. The victim, a 69-year-old woman, was taken to the hospital in critical condition. Since then she is reportedly no longer in life-threatening danger. The perpetrator, a 20-year-old from Iraq, we learn from political circles and confirmed by the prosecutor’s office, was caught. Earlier this week the man also attacked a police officer.

The incident took place at 11:20 on a train coming from Leuven. The victim was stabbed several times. The perpetrator, a 20-year-old who has reportedly been in our country for ten years, also tried to escape, but was eventually caught in the station by officers of Securail. “The victim was taken to the hospital in life-threatening condition,” according to the federal police. “Two other people who saw the incident are in shock.”

According to the prosecutor’s officer, the man was administratively arrested earlier this week. At a certain moment, he was let out of his cell and kicked an officer. That was subsequently classified by the prosecutor’s office as assault [with injuries] on an officer. On Monday, they brought the man before summary judgment. Now he has stabbed a woman. Tomorrow, he will be brought before the investigating judge for today’s incident.

I don’t know about Belgium, but in Sweden they’d throw the book at the perp — he’d get at least a week in jail, and then have to do twelve hours of community service, just to teach him a lesson. They don’t mess around in Sweden.

Translator’s update: The Belgian article has been updated with some new details. The suspect is identified as Hussein A., 27.

Under the Veil in Italy

Below is another report by the journalist Eugenia Fiore about the ongoing Islamization of Italy and the resulting oppression of women. It begins with an account of a parricide by a young Muslima, and then visits various cities to look at the compulsory veiling of very young girls, and the de-facto institution of purdah to keep Muslim women secluded.

“Christians Are Persecuted by People of Muslim Faith”

The Italian city of Trieste lies at the head of the Adriatic, close by the Slovenian border. In the late 19th century Trieste was the epicenter of Italian Irredentism; today it is a hotbed of Muslim infiltration into Italy. The Balkan Route is currently one of the predominant pathways for clandestine immigration into the European Union, and Trieste is the western gateway on that route, opening into Italy and points further north and west.

The following report from Trieste features interviews with various participants in the migration drama, both Muslims and (persecuted) Christians.

Abu Alia Gets Tossed Out of Canton Bern

I couldn’t help but notice that the Salafist preacher featured in this story (who was expelled from Switzerland) is described as a “German-Greek” named Abu Alia. It seemed an amusing description, but apparently the real name of the Islamic firebrand is “Efstathios T.” — which sounds Greek to me. It seems he must be a Greek who converted to the Religion of Peace and then became a dangerous zealot.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from Blick:

Taken back to the border by police

Authorities prevent entry of hate preacher in Biel

The German-Greek Salafist, Abu Alia, wanted to hold a lecture in Biel (Canton Bern) on Saturday evening. But that didn’t happen. He was banned from entering, and was taken back to the border.

by Lino Schaeren
March 31, 2024

Abu Alia al-Yunani is a radical Salafist. The German-Greek preacher has regularly shown up on the radar of the German Security Police. On Saturday evening, Abu Alia traveled to Switzerland to hold a lecture. Apparently, the preacher was invited by the Albanian Zemzem Mosque in Biel (Canton Bern). At least, Abu Alia announced his visit on Thursday on social media and alerted the Swiss authorities. Because the planned appearance did not occur.

The canton of Bern applied for an entry ban on Abu Alia with the Federal Police Office (Fedpol). That is confirmed by Bern’s Security Director, Philippe Mueller (60, FDP), to Blick. Fedpol only confirms the arrival of the request “in the context of an announced event in Canton Bern on Saturday”. According to Blick‘s information, the Fedpol granted the application from Philippe Mueller on Saturday and imposed an entry ban against the Salafist Abu Alia.

However: Apparently, at this time he was already in Switzerland. That is what the preacher himself says in response to a query from Blick. His entrance into the mosque in Biel fell through, apparently, because the cantonal police were able to grab him early and take him back to the border

Mosque leadership got cold feet

The leadership of the Zemzem Mosque, which the Salafist wanted to enter, was unavailable for comment. Apparently, however, they had already gotten cold feet on Saturday when 20 Minutes was first to report on the planned lecture. On Saturday evening, on-site police officials reported to Blick that the president of the Albanian Muslim Cultural Association did not want the event to go on.

Abu Alia, real name Efstathios T., has been known to authorities in Germany as a figure in the extremist Salafist scene for several years. The state of North Rhine-Westphalia listed the German-Greek as a hate preacher in a 2019 Salafist situation report. Abu Alia was a mainstay in the radical Islamic association “Invitation to Paradise” where he worked together with the well-known Salafists Pierre Vogel and Sven Lau. The association broke up in 2011.
