How to Start a War in Europe

Unknown

The progressive elites of Europe have a new recipe for war, and they want everyone to try it. Gone are the days of wars inspired by territory or national interests. The new recipe is a brilliantly simple ideological model that works something like this:

Introduce policies based on ideology; ignore effects created by those policies; vilify dissenters & continue with fingers in ears = war

The President of the unelected executive arm of the European Union (EU) has vowed to block all right wing populists from power across the continent, shortly after acquiring the power to exert “far-reaching sanctions” on elected governments.

“There will be no debate or dialogue with the far-right,” the liberal bureaucrat told AFP.  Read More

For the past twenty five years the narrative on ever closer ties with the European Union & mass immigration has been controlled by the progressive left. Anyone who had a problem with this narrative was branded a racist or a xenophobe and told to go away.

However those people don’t go away. As the effects of those policies increase, they find another way of making their voice heard, as we can see in the predictable rise of nationalist parties across Europe – it’s fairly simple how the current situation came about if you are willing to be objective about it.

The political spring has been set for a nasty visceral backlash that is only just starting to build momentum. However, rather than address the issue and face the gathering storm, the elites in their arrogance & folly, have decided that they will simple ignore it and continue on as planned.

This will go down as the perilous pitfall of progressive thought: that ideology trumps reality.

Pope 2.0 Abandoning Europe to Islam

images

Yet further evidence that we live in an upside down world of reversed meanings & values has emerged. And rather than a progressive politician, it is Pope Francis who increasingly epitomizes this. Ask anybody what the Pope’s one job is, and top of that list would probably be ‘defending the faith.’ Especially in the European homeland.

But after calling for a one world government – the one thing you cannot do as Pope unless you are seeking to emulate the false prophet of Revelations – Pope 2.0 has now welcomed the Islamization of Europe. Read More

In 2006, Pope Benedict XVI said what no Pope had ever dared to say – that there is a link between violence and Islam. Ten years later, Pope Francis never calls those responsible for anti-Christian violence by name and never mentions the word “Islam.”

Pope Francis does not even try to re-evangelize or reconquer Europe. He seems deeply to believe that the future of Christianity is in the Philippines, in Brazil and in Africa. 

Probably for the same reason, the Pope is spending less time denouncing the terrible fate of Christians in the Middle East. Sandro Magister, Italy’s most important Vatican observer, sheds light on the Pope’s silences:

“He remained silent on the hundreds of Nigerian schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram. He remained silent on the young Sudanese mother Meriam, sentenced to death solely for being Christian and finally liberated by the intervention of others. He remains silent on the Pakistani mother Asia Bibi, who has been on death row for five years, because she too is an ‘infidel’, and [He] does not even reply to the two heartrending letters she has written to him this year, before and after the reconfirmation of the sentence.”

 

 

 

The Battle For Europe

Sources are suggesting that the Queen has spoken out in favour of a British exit (Brexit) from the E.U. during a lunch. Read More

Just in case there is any truth to the matter, the progressive knives came out in the federalist Independent whilst the Guardian denied the story had any credibility.

With four weeks to go before voters go to the poles, if this campaign has served one purpose, it is to highlight the rapidly polarizing nature of politics in Britain.

The Leave campaign boasts a bevy of heavy hitters from business and politics, whilst the Remain campaign has relied heavily on fear tactics; painting an apocalyptic picture of life outside of the E.U.

The Dry Shave Show #58: Gone with the Wimp

It’s that time of the week again: time for a new episode of The Dry Shave Show with Byron Bertram and Ivan Penaluna (pus Pyra Draculea with news… and bloody well about time she remembered to post a link here again!).

This week: Gone with the Wimp

DSS58

Ivan and Byron wish Rob Ford was alive and Prime Minister while Justin Trudeau rejects Putin’s advances/offers of help to put out the Fort McMurray fires and Sophie Trudeau needs more taxpayer-funded help to sit on her ass and do nothing. The gang also discuss a proposed sex park in Brazil, Venezuela telling its breweries to make beer or else, the Saudis instituting gym class for girls’ schools, and an Israeli man tries to get a restraining order against God. Also, Byron rants about sports stuff and Hindu prayers for Donald Trump, courtesy of Narj Singh… er, Swami Ananda.

European Union: Dead Man Walking

Unknown

The E.U. is facing a perfect storm of its own making. Its failure to manage either the economic or migrant crises, means that opting to remain within the E.U. at this stage would be akin to throwing your lot in with the Ottoman empire at the end of the 19th Century.

Polls also suggest that any country opting out of the Euro experiment via a referendum, could act as a catalyst for others seeking to follow suit. Read More

When things get tough, as they did during the economic crisis and again during the immigration crisis, we get to see the true face of E.U. rule behind the benign facade.

Those countries who mismanaged their budgets had their leaders replaced with E.U. appointed technocrats; those countries who were not comfortable taking large numbers of migrants were informed they would take the quota allocated to them or face a fines of 239,000 Euros per person. So much for for countries like Hungary, Slovakia, Poland & the Czech Republic deciding such things for themselves.

And this week President of the Commission, Jean-Claude Junker warned British voters that they would be treated as ‘deserters’ if they voted to leave the union.

Junker, the former leader of Luxembourg must appreciate the effect his choice of words convey: that ‘deserters’ are traditionally shot. It is highly inflammatory and displays the sort of autocratic arrogance we have come to associate with E.U. ministers. Read More

Rather than avoid the spectre of war in Europe and secure economic harmony – the two objectives the E.U. was primarily set up to achieve – it has, through a progressive policy of forcing ideological pegs into cultural holes, ensured the servitude of those countries who cannot live up to economic expectations, and sown the seeds of future ethnic wars continent wide.

“I believe that the European Union is in the process of collapsing on itself for one simple reason. The two pillars on which it’s founded – Schengen and the euro – are in the process of crumbling,”  Marine Le Pen, Leader of the French National Front. Read More

In February, Hungary announced a referendum on migrant quotas imposed by the E.U.

In an unprecedented challenge to Brussels’ authority over national law, the Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Oban announced the country would hold a referendum on the question. States are legally bound by decisions made in the Council of Ministers, and there is no precedent for a state putting such a decision to popular vote.

“The Hungarian government believes that neither the union nor Brussels nor the European leaders nor any European body has the authority to do this,” Mr Orban said. “We feel that introducing a settlement quota without the consent of the people is nothing but abuse of power.”

Donald Tusk, the European Council president, warned that countries rejecting refugee measures would push Britain to leave the EU, saying the crises are “strictly interconnected.”

We have entered a most dangerous time in the European history.” Donald Tusk, European Council President

Sowing the Seeds of Ethnic War

In France, half of their armed forces are deployed on French streets to police the final stages of an experiment which, even by the more generous interpretations, has failed.  What we are seeing in France is the start of an ethnic war. People returning from Belgium after years of living in the country describe it as “fucked.”

These are the startling realities that supporters of continued Islamic immigration won’t acknowledge; continuing with the same policies and hoping for a wind change is criminally naive. It would be one thing if Islamist attacks only killed those who apologize for and excuse Islamic violence, but unfortunately they don’t.

As political philosopher, Roger Scruton points out in The Uses of Pessimism,

“Since the sixties Western countries have adopted policies in the matter of immigration that no person schooled in the elementary truths of pessimism would have endorsed. Anybody who has studied the fate of empires, and the difficulties of establishing territorial jurisdiction over communities that differ in religion, language & marital customs, knows that the task is all but impossible, and threatens constantly to break down into fragmentation, tribalism or civil war. Take the lid off multi-ethnic and multicultural empires – such as the Ottoman or communist Yugoslavia – and bloodshed and destruction ensue.”

The failure to see culture and race as considerations by those driving policy, has ensured that the conditions that developed over a thousand years in Yugoslavia, have been recreated in less than two generations in modern Europe. A European ethnic civil war is a almost a certainty at this stage, it’s now merely how big that war is.

On June 23rd people in Britain have the opportunity to set course and escape the inevitable scramble for life jackets by voting to leave the E.U.

 

 

With Federalist Friends Like These

images

The Remain campaign in the upcoming British referendum on continued E.U. membership must be wishing that allies like Jean-Claude Junker would resist the urge to help.

The President of the E.U. Commission’s idea of assistance is to threaten British voters going to the polls that they will be treated as ‘deserters’ if they decide to leave the E.U.

In his greatest intervention in the referendum contest, the President of the European Commission said that the UK would face “consquences” and be treated as a “third country” following a break with the EU.

Historically threats go down really well in Britain, and are almost certain to activate the deeply embedded cultural oppositional defiance inherent in so much of the national character; especially when they come from the former leader of Luxembourg – a country that barely exists without the E.U. and which the German army didn’t even consider worthy of a stop for lunch in 1940.

The President finished off being helpful to the Remain campaign by suggesting that the package of concessions British Prime Minister David Cameron secured in order to persuade voters to remain in Europe will “not be easy” to deliver.

With Federalist friends like these who needs a counter campaign?

However, the Leave campaign faced a similar issue recently, when French National Front leader Marine Le Pen offered to come to the U.K. to help Nigel Farage persuade people that membership of a federal Europe is not in the national interest, which he politely declined.

 

Trudeaumania: List Under Satire

images-3

Can someone please call The Guardian a taxi, they’ve had too much to drink.

Imagine a West Wing episode come to life, and that’s basically Justin Trudeau. The winsome Canadian prime minister blew up the internet again this week via an old photo of him larking about for the cameras, balancing his entire weight on his wrists on the edge of a desk in trademark manly-but-sensitive fashion. One more for a photo album that so far includes Trudeau cuddling pandas, Trudeau proudly proclaiming himself a feminist, Trudeau wearing a Barbie-pink sweatshirt in solidarity with kids bullied for looking different – and of course a newly elected Trudeau last autumn answering questions about why half his new cabinet was female, with the words “because it’s 2015”, and a shrug that clearly meant “so deal with it.”

Who else is still pulling off the whole hopey-changey thing, still surfing a wave of sunny progressive feeling when the US and much of Europe are increasingly convulsed with rage against either poor migrants or privileged elites, or both? While Britons contemplate a supposedly “kinder, gentler politics” of the left that turns out to come garnished with vicious personal attacks and repulsively antisemitic undercurrents, lucky old Canada gets a photogenic ex-snowboarding instructor calmly explaining why it’s not so mad to run a deficit.

Just little bit more? Go on then…

From the outside at least, Canada seems to be pulling off the elusive trick of remaining tolerant, relaxed and at ease with itself in challenging circumstances with more aplomb than most. You’d think all progressives would be hammering on the door to find out how they do it. But while any leftish policy wonk can give you chapter and verse on Scandinavia, few have made a life’s work of studying Canada, even though its quietly self-effacing culture seems in some ways a more realistic vision of what a future progressive Britain could be.
