It was historically moronic for Neocons, libertarians and others to breathlessly claim that we are solely a magical 'Idea Nation!" when almost all of those ideas came right out of the West. --tma
Vienna (AFP) - New restrictions come into force in Austria on Sunday banning the wearing of the full Islamic veil and other items concealing the face in public places and buildings.
Exemptions "under certain conditions" include items like clown disguises "at cultural events", work wear such as medical masks, and scarves in cold weather, the government says.
The restrictions are aimed at "ensuring the cohesion of society in an open society", it says. Violations will be punished with a fine of up to 150 euros ($177).
"Acceptance and respect of Austrian values are basic conditions for successful cohabitation between the majority Austrian population and people from third countries living in Austria," Vienna says. ...
Starting Friday, armed soldiers from the Danish Armed Forces (Forsvaret) will replace police officers at both Denmark’s southern border to Germany and at potential terror targets in Copenhagen.
According to the Danish National Police (Rigspolitiet) and Copenhagen Police, 160 soldiers will patrol the border and take over guard duties at Jewish institutions including the Great Synagogue in central Copenhagen. ...
Phony outrage from Senators on Trump refugee consultation with Congress
Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 29, 2017
I can’t spend a lot of time on this, but it warrants a bit of attention.
These US Senators have no shame!
Senator Grassley has been there 36 years and Feinstein 25 years. I would like them both to tell us when exactly was the Refugee Act of 1980 properly/legally carried out when it came to the provision involving the Presidential “determination” and “consultation” with Congress.
What the hell is Senator Grassley doing scolding the White House/State Department, complaining that the legal process was not followed on THIS year’s legally required consultation on the refugee CEILING/CAP.
For the last ten years (and probably the ten before I was watching), Congress never paid any attention to the law when it came to the President’s determination about how many refugees COULD be admitted in the coming fiscal year.
Someone from the Administration would come to the Hill in mid to late September, present the determination and report, and no one on the Hill said boo!
Whatever was sent up, even literally within days of October 1, Congress accepted.
Now, only now! are they screaming about how the process was subverted (because it is Trump?). ...
Back in the mid-1950s, novelist Sloan Wilson wrote a highly successful but discomfiting bestseller. It was about a man very much like the author of this book: a young writer who lived in a cramped, rundown house with his wife and three children, and worked an ill-paid job at an educational non-profit. He struggled to make ends meet, surviving on a combination of booze and white-knuckle desperation. ...
Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers arrested nearly 500 immigration violators in a nationwide operation this week, pursuing criminal aliens residing in cities that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
The operation, dubbed “Safe City,” nabbed a total of 498 people who were living in cities and states where immigration officers are denied access to jails or where immigration detention requests are ignored.
The operation focused on illegal aliens with criminal convictions, known gang members and affiliates, and people who re-entered the country after being deported, ICE officials said. People with active status under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program were not targeted, according to ICE.
“Sanctuary jurisdictions that do not honor detainers or allow us access to jails and prisons are shielding criminal aliens from immigration enforcement and creating a magnet for illegal immigration,” ICE acting director Tom Homan said in a statement. “As a result, ICE is forced to dedicate more resources to conduct at-large arrests in these communities.” ...
And, no one is happy except maybe the Republican leadership in Congress—they will get some cheap labor for big business donors and the President has asked nothing of them in the way of trashing or reforming the system.
No one is happy when you split the baby!
They can go home to angry voters who wanted a lower number (or none at all!) and pass the buck to the Prez.
Looking at the wailing headlines this morning (quoting the refugee industry) about how Donald Trump, the meany, has slashed refugee admissions to an all-time low, it seems to me that onlyBreitbartgot it right!
Trump Administration Misses Opportunity to Suspend Refugee Program, Sets FY 2018 Ceiling at 45,000
If Trump had suspended the program (Bush suspended it for two months at the beginning of FY02), it might have lit a fire under the House and Senate Judiciary Committees to begin seriously investigating the program and either trashing it or reforming it. There is now zero incentive to do that.
And, does anyone think any serious effort will be made in Election year 2018?
The program can move along at this slightly lower level until Trump is no longer President and then they can kick it in to high gear again, and away they go. They will push up the numbers dramatically to make up for lost time in demographically changing America.
BTW, Breitbart reporter Michael Patrick Leahy did a little calculation and points out that the average annual admissions under George Bush were guess what? Under 45,000.
So, Donald Trump has done what politicians always do—tried to split the baby—and turned off his base of voters who wanted to see this program and other legal immigration programs reined in.
I’ll have more to say later (have a family gathering to host) when I may be able to calmly give some guidance on what we might do next.
Roy Moore’s upset victory in the Alabama Senate primary sent shock waves through the Republican establishment Wednesday, portending a GOP civil war as outsider candidates in other states threaten to challenge incumbents.
The potential showdowns are reminiscent of the tea party uprising that just a few years ago cost Republicans the majority in the Senate. Now President Trump’s populist rise to power — honed by his former advisor Stephen K. Bannon — has generated a new wave of long-shot candidates capable of upending the 2018 midterms. ...
Within 40 years, given current demographic trends, the white population in France and the rest of old Europe will recede, creating a Muslim majority, a French researcher says.
Charles Gave, an economist, fund manager and political commentator, published his conclusions this month on the webpage of his think tank, Institute des Libertes. He writes of the “disappearance of the European populations” as native populations shrink and Muslims continue to exhibit a robust fertility rate.
Mr. Gave, president of Gavekal Research, acknowledges that his decidedly unpolitically correct view may bring him scorn and possibly censorship. The political left generally protects Islam from criticism. In the U.S., President Obama consistently defended Islam and mocked Christians for their criticism. ...
A couple of years ago, when Obama was considering how many Syrian Muslims to admit to the US, a bunch of far Left Senators sent a letter demanding he admit 65,000 Syrians on top of at least another 100,000 refugees from around the world.
Two Republican Senators (Murkowski and McCain) demand Trump admit more third world poverty to America.
So, friends of mine coined the term ‘Senate Jihad Caucus’ to describe them, see one post here:
I had a good laugh herein September of last year when we saw that the New York Times had picked up our nickname for the group but couldn’t bother to link or even name where they got it!
Now we see that Republican Senators John McCain and Lisa Murkowski have joined that distinguished growing group.
Here is their letter (notice in this anti-Trump PR stunt they can’t even agree on what they think is the appropriate number so have opted for the Left’s favorite word—robust).
The swelling population of illegal immigrants and their kids is costing American taxpayers $135 billion a year, the highest ever, driven by free medical care, education and a huge law enforcement bill, according to the the most authoritative report on the issue yet.
And despite claims from pro-illegal immigration advocates that the aliens pay significant off-setting taxes back to federal, state and local treasuries, the Federation for American Immigration Reform report tallied just $19 billion, making the final hit to taxpayers about $116 billion.
State and local governments are getting ravaged by the costs, at over $88 billion. The federal government, by comparison, is getting off easy at $45 billion in costs for illegals.
President Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and conservatives in Congress are moving aggressively to deal with illegals, especially those with long criminal records. But their effort is being fought by courts and some 300 so-called "sanctuary communities" that refuse to work with federal law enforcement. ...
And now, we have the ultimate proof in Alabama. Judge Roy Moore,one of the most persistenttargets of the Southern Poverty Law Center, is now the Republican nominee for the Senate. And he defeated incumbent Senator Luther Strange despite Strange being endorsed by President Donald J. Trump himself. ...
Homeland Security said it began construction Tuesday on the prototypes for President Trump’s new border wall.
In a short notice, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said the building began in San Diego on eight prototypes, which had been awarded over the summer.
Four of the prototypes are concrete walls, and four are non-concrete designs.
[ ... ]
Mr. Trump during the campaign said he wanted to see a border-long wall, but more recently has said between 700 and 900 miles needs a barrier. ...
This is a lie endlessly repeated by the MSM to make it appear that Trump is backing down. At many campaign rallies Trump would say parenthetically that "They tell me the Wall does not have to be continuous, because of natural barriers and the like," after which he gave no indication that he disagreed.
“The wall has to get built, and nothing else matters.”
During the campaign, Donald J. Trump made lots of promises — he’d be the greatest jobs president God ever created, he’d cut taxes, he’d balance the budget, he’d give all Americans fantastic health care, he’d renegotiate NAFTA, he’d scotch the Iran deal and so on.
But there was one central promise without which he wouldn’t have been elected: He said he’d build a wall.
Either Trump understood the urgency of our border crisis, as his every campaign speech suggested, or it was just meaningless boilerplate to get himself elected. If it was the latter, then our search continues for one politician who won’t lie to us.
It was precisely the Nietzschean Eternal Recurrence of politicians promising to get tough on immigration, but never, ever doing it, that caused voters to cling to Trump like a life vest in a tidal wave.
If Trump actually believed what he claimed to believe, he would treat the building of a wall as a far more urgent priority than sending FEMA after a hurricane. ...
The MSM, besides endlessly calling all critics of Merkel's crazed open-borders policies, no matter how reasonable, "far-right" or "Nazi," and always saying they are "anti-immigrant," when more accurately they are anti-open borders, anti-European Caliphate, there is this constant drumbeat spin/lie that the refugee invasion and its consequences are all in the past, causing only a "lingering impact," when the invasion is merely down from its hydrogen-bomb peak and, given birthrates, the German/European civilization-ending train-wreck bloodbath has only just begun. Pray for weak as a kitten among timber wolves Europe. --tma
Invasion of Europe news…..
You’ve seen the news I’m sure, but this headline at Reuters caught my attention:
Incensed over refugees, east Germans punish easterner Merkel
Hereis the story. Germany headed down the tubes IMHO (emphasis below is mine):
BERLIN (Reuters) – For weeks, Chancellor Angela Merkel endured taunts and whistles whenever she ventured out on the campaign trail in her home region of eastern Germany.
What did she win? In four more years will Germany even be recognizable?
And on Sunday, it was voters in the east, incensed by her decision to allow hundreds of thousands of refugees into the country, that helped send her conservatives to their worst result since 1949 and vaulted a far-right party into the German parliament.
They want Germany for Germans! What a novel idea!
Preliminary results showed the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD)winning 22.9 percent of the vote in the former communist east, well above their national result of roughly 13 percent. The AfD performed especially well with east German men, 26 percent of whom backed the party.
Merkel did secure a fourth term on Sunday, but she limped to the finish line and must now cobble together an unwieldy coalition with two other parties — the business friendly Free Democrats (FDP) and environmentalist Greens — that have diametrically opposed views on many of the big issues.
The result suggested that pollsters may have underestimated the lingering impact of the refugee crisis in the election and the outsized influence it would have in the east, where voters continue to behave very differently than their brethren in the west 28 years after the fall of the Wall. [Those eastern Europeans haven’t been sufficiently brain-washed with political correctness, or do they understand what occupation feels like!—ed] ...
Berlin (AFP) - The Alternative for Germany (AfD) on Sunday became the first hard-right, openly anti-immigration party to win dozens of seats in parliament since World War II, breaking a taboo despite mainstream politicians' calls to halt "the Nazis" in their tracks.
Exit polls credited the AfD with around 13 percent of the vote, making it the third biggest political force in Germany -- a stunning result for a party that was founded just four years ago.
"We will change this country," vowed Alexander Gauland, one of the party's top two candidates, pledging to "go after" Chancellor Angela Merkel's government.
It promised that it would make it a priority to launch a parliamentary probe against Merkel over her decision to let in more than one million asylum seekers since 2015. ...
St. Cloud, MN: a microcosm of the battle ahead for cities targeted by federal refugee program
Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 24, 2017
The dramatic change in demographic makeup and the escalation of tensions in St. Cloud came to my attention in the earliest days of writing this blog when my then blog partner, Judy, wrote in 2008 about how Somali students were harassing a service dog to such a degree that it caused the disabled student to leave the school.
It is a good thing that we captured some of that story because it seems to no longer be available at the St. Cloud Times, which surprise, surprise, seems to be the case for many of the articles we have reported on from St. Cloud in the ensuing 9 years.
Recommendation! I can’t do it here, but when I look at RRW’s archives on St. Cloud (that began with the dog abuse story) what immediately comes to mind is that what has happened to the city, now the third highest for the direct resettlement of Somalis in the state (Minneapolis and St. Paul, are numbers one and two), is that someone should do a documentary film or write a book about the transformation of a small American city that began with a meatpacking plant’s desire for cheap labor. ...
RIMINI, Italy (Reuters) - Italy’s anti-establishment 5-Star Movement, riding high in opinion polls, has named 31-year-old Luigi Di Maio to lead it into parliamentary elections next year that could see it win national power. Di Maio, deputy speaker of the lower house, is the party’s most prominent and popular politician and had been groomed for the leadership in recent years by 5-Star’s founder, the 69-year-old comedian Beppe Grillo. Boyish-looking and usually immaculately turned out in suit and tie, Di Maio presents a moderate image in striking contrast to Grillo, who is famous for his raucous tirades against Italy’s ruling elite. “You have given me an enormous responsibility ... I assure you I’ll carry it out with discipline and honor,” Di Maio told supporters on Saturday at the party’s annual gathering in the Adriatic coastal town of Rimini. ... http://www.reuters.com/article/us-italy-politics-5star/italys-5-star-names-youthful-new-leader-as-election-nears-idUSKCN1BY0UN
MUNICH/POTSDAM, Germany (Reuters) - More than 8,000 people -- including hecklers blowing whistles -- showed up in Munich for one of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s final speeches before Sunday’s national election that is expected to sweep her into a fourth term. Merkel, whose conservatives have a solid double-digit lead over the Social Democrats, largely ignored jeers from hundreds of left- and right-wing demonstrators to deliver a stump speech focused on stability, security and a promise to avoid tax increases. “Get lost,” “Merkel must go,” shouted some demonstrators as curious foreign tourists, in Munich for its famous Oktoberfest, snapped photographs of the German leader first elected in 2005. ...
BERLIN/GREIFSWALD, Germany (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel, poised to win a fourth term in Sunday’s election, urged supporters on Saturday to keep fighting for votes with a third of the electorate still undecided. Merkel’s call was echoed by her center-left challenger Martin Schulz of the Social Democrats, now in an unwieldy “grand coalition” with her conservatives. Merkel is widely expected to cruise to re-election with the Social Democrats trailing by double digits but the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) could emerge as the third largest party, complicating the make-up of her next coalition. ...
As Germany gears up for next Sunday’s federal elections, there is a growing fear among the nation’s elite establishment that the conservative AfD party will do considerably better than polls indicate. A recent article by the magazine Der Spiegel bore the title “I’ve Never Seen So Much Anger, So Much Hate,” which is liberal doublespeak for a growing malaise among the German electorate for the business-as-usual of Angela Merkel’s globalist administration. Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) was founded in 2013 with a strong anti-European Union identity, but has shifted its focus in response to Germany’s central role in Europe’s migrant crisis, which has turned many against Angela Merkel and her Christian Democratic Union (CDU). AfD has called for far more rigorous immigration controls, including sealing the European Union’s external borders. ...
"In the wake of the Brexit vote and the election of President Trump, the experts and commentators whose ideas shape the ideas of others have tried to pinpoint the cause of the populist fervor that upended many expectations. In op-eds and books (see The Death of Expertise) the consensus seems to be: The egghead is dead. ..." Of course the intelligent thing would have been for voters to take the advice of Globalist academics and left-wing and Neocon intellectuals and pundits and elect the Clinton Crime Family and reject Brexit in favor of staying within the EU, which is fast becoming something between the Soviet Union and a European Caliphate. http://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/what-happened-americas-public-intellectuals-180963668/
