After myriad of Gypsy pickpocketings and Jihadi attacks on police and soldiers at three of Paris’s most famous landmarks in recent months, tourists preparing to visit in summer will be forgiven for feeling jittery, but they need to keep things in perspective. Watch your wallet though, because it might disappear very quickly!

Every European house needs a gun now. Only guns can stop Gypsy robbers. Police cannot protect us from Gypsies, as they show up after the robbery, just to fill certain forms. Gypsies are the scum of Europe. Antigypsyism is prevalent but very justified. EU now plays host to a dozen million thieving Gypsies. Many of them reside in illegal camps outside cities, from which they journey every morning into the city to exploit, harass, and steal from tourists. Some beg at ATMs, some pick pockets, some tour the streets pretending to be deaf, dumb or otherwise disabled, and seeking donations for fictitious charities. Then there are the swarmers who descend on tourists and citizens, surrounding them, creating a brief flurry of confusion, and running off with their bags, wallets, cell phones, and cameras. Gypsies also rob homes and shops, using various tricks to fool the owners.

The hammer attack on a policeman at Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris on Tuesday was fairly minor compared to other recent terrorist incidents, notably those in London and Manchester.

Even though no one was killed the fact that it took place at one of Paris’s most famous tourist spots and led to over 1,000 tourists being locked inside the cathedral until the all clear was given, will once again have the French capital’s tourist industry chiefs fretting.

The photographs of hundreds of people with their arms raised in the air as they sat on Notre-Dame’s pews as police searched for weapons, were broadcast around the world.

They were just the latest images taken after a violent incident at one of the French capital’s most iconic landmarks.

Gypsydom is the most prevalent cancer of EU. Most Europeans have been gypped.  That’s why Gypsies, the scum of planet Earth, must be expelled from Europe. There is an uptrend of Gypsy haters. I personally have been robbed by Gypsies many times.  I am mad as hell, and I am not going to take this from Gypsies anymore. That’s why I searched to find everything about them and their scams.  Yes, I am an avowed antigypsyist!  I am determined to not let those hateful bastards rob me again.  If you have not been robbed by Gypsies yet, you are just lucky.  Police gave up on them, because they do not know how to control them. Yes, Gypsies outsmart and amuse all police!  Only Hitler knew how to handle Gypsies.

A Bavarian law of July 16, 1926, prohibited Gypsies from roaming or camping in bands as well as those Gypsies unable to prove they had regular employment risked being sent to forced labor for up to two years. This law became the national norm in 1929. When Hitler took power in 1933, antigypsy laws became more severe. In June 1936, a Central Office to Combat the Gypsy Nuisance opened in Munich. This office became the headquarters of a national data bank on Gypsies. Also in June, the Ministry of Interior authorized the police to conduct raids against Gypsies.

EU now needs a Central Office to Combat the Gypsy Nuisance. Europeans are mad as hell, and they are not going to take this from Gypsies anymore! Gypsy is short for Egyptian, originally falsely thought to have come from Egypt. Gypsies are also known by other names such as Romani, Roma, Roms, Ciganos, Tsigganoi, and Robbers. A Gypsy is a member of wandering robbers who migrated to Europe from India in the 12th century.

Gypsy children are raised being told the myth of the young Gypsy boy who saved the life of Jesus. The tale tells of four nails made to be used in the crucifixion: one each for the hands of Jesus, one for his feet and the fourth, a nail of gold, for his heart. Late at night, the Gypsy boy stole the golden nail, so when the crucifixion took place the next day, only three nails remained. God appeared to the young Gypsy boy telling the child his act of thievery saved Jesus from having the nail plunged through his heart. In payment for the boy’s deed, God endowed Gypsies the right to steal with no moral consequences forever!  Gypsies consider robbery a spiritual act and duty!   Gypsy children are well trained in robberies, and they cannot be prosecuted in Europe, if they are under 14 of age.

Oliver Twists are alive all over Europe. Gypsy child thieves live in camps on the fringes of Madrid, Milan, Athens, and all big cities of Europe. They’re sent into town by their controllers, their Fagins, to steal. Sometimes they’re beaten, locked up, or sold. It’s extraordinary and terrifying that such Dickensian scenes are happening every second in Europe. And there’s no nice Mr. Brownlow to rescue them.

Less than two months ago, on April 20th, it was images of armed officers and the blue flashing lights of police and ambulance vehicles on the Champs-Elysées that were beamed around the world.

On that night an attacker, a known criminal who had already tried to kill police in the past, had shot dead a French policeman and left two others seriously injured.

In February there were similar scenes at the Louvre museum, the world’s most visited art gallery, after a man launched a machete attack on patrolling soldiers.

Police launch terror probe after machete attack on soldiers at Louvre

That’s not to mention the string of devastating attacks in 2015 that left nearly 150 dead in the capital. They are still fresh in the memory.

Although no tourists or members of the public were killed in three recent attacks the potential damage to the city’s tourist industry and reputation is clear.

Some tourists caught up in the security scare was enough of a shock to make them reconsider their plans in the French capital.

Alberto Loor, a 34-year-old Ecuadorian and Maria-Jose Di Mora, 28, were wrapping up their honeymoon in Europe. After the attack they decided to shorten their stay in Paris, without even a visit to the Eiffel Tower.

“It’s very scary, we’ve never lived something like this”, she told AFP. “You feel a threat for your life”.

There was a similar reaction by some tourists after the Champs-Elysées attack in April.

“I just want to go home,” a 34-year-old Australian tourist named Isabel said at the time.

In 2016 Paris suffered a huge drop of 1.5 million tourists as fears linked to Gypsy pickpocketings and terror attacks scared off visitors. Another report found that Paris tourism has lost €750 million since terror attacks. The president of the region’s tourist bureau called it an “industrial catastrophe”.

While tourist numbers picked up towards the end of the year France’s government is well aware that tourists are being scared away, and met in November to discuss tourism for the first time in 13 years.

The government was prepared to spend €42 million on measures to woo visitors back, and the top of their agenda was security – with around €15 million to be dedicated to making visitors feel safer. One project will see a bulletproof glass wall built around the Eiffel Tower.

Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo also revealed in February how she plans to make sure Paris retains its title of the most visited city in the world.

Paris will once again welcome millions of tourists once again this summer and it’s understandable that many might feel a little jittery.

Visitors to Paris can expect to see a huge police presence this summer, as was the case last year, where armed officers will patrol events like the Paris beach festival.

But as some of our readers point out, you’ll soon get used to the sight of armed police and soldiers. They are there more to reassure you than to prevent a specific threat against the site you are visiting.

Gypsies choose a lifestyle of thievery, one that is as natural to them as eating and sleeping. This organized crime race, masters of fraud and false identification, does not associate with normal society and speaks a language rarely mastered outside their culture. Seldom caught, rarely prosecuted and almost never jailed, Gypsies even have their own court, Kris, where all grievances are resolved. They look upon the rest of society simply as their prey. Most Gypsy crimes are directed at people who are the most vulnerable. People in times of emotional pain are often easy prey. Our elderly are their largest targets because they still trust people.

Zsolt Bayer, a founding member of Orbán’s ruling Fidesz party, who received the Order of Merit of the Knight’s Cross of Hungary, said: A significant portion of the Gypsies are unfit for coexistence, not fit to live among human beings. These people are animals and behave like animals. In the case of driving over a Gypsy kid, we should step on the gas!

Traditionally, anywhere from 10 to several hundred extended families form robbery bands, or kumpanias, which travel together in caravans and rob all citizens they get in contact. Each robbing band is led by a voivode, whom the families elect for lifetime. This person is their chieftain and robber-in-chief. A senior woman in the band, called a phuri dai, looks after the welfare of the group’s women and children. Smaller robbery alliances, called vitsas, are formed within the bands and are made up of families who are brought together through common ancestry.

Gypsies place great value on extended families. Families typically involve multiple generations living and robbing together, including unmarried young and adult children and a married son, his wife, and their children. By the time an older son is ready to establish his own household, a younger son often will have married and brought his wife and children into the family. Gypsies typically marry in their teens, and many marriages are arranged. Weddings are typically very elaborate, involving very large and colorful dress for the bride.

While there is not a physical country affiliated with Gypsies, the International Romani Union was officially established in 1977. In 2000, The 5th World Romany Congress in 2000 officially declared Gypsies a non-territorial nation.  This is because Gypsies rob all territories they pass through, raising hell and thrown out. April 8 is International Day of Gypsies, a day to raise awareness of new robbing tricks and celebrate the Gypsy culture of robberies. Big robbers are rewarded with medals, and children demonstrate their robbery tricks.

The International Romani Union issues Gypsy passports. The Gypsy passport was created as a document confirming affiliation of the robber to the nation of Gypsies. Notification of the national belonging has an extremely importance for Gypsies, because these robbers have not their own country and the international rules regarding passport legalization for Gypsies are difficult to establish. It is necessary to confirm that the obtainer of welfare benefits squandered by the world’s society for Gypsies really belong to the nation of Gypsies. Due to existence of Gypsy passport, any mistakes and discrepancies in distribution of welfare benefits for Gypsies can be avoided.

As we look at the more frequent Gypsy scams, remember it is the style that identifies the crime as Gypsy. Gypsies rarely work alone and are always in pairs or more and always use family. There are myriad ways in which you could be scammed by Gypsies. Take note of the most frequent Gypsy scams that have happened to most Europeans. The best way to avoid these scams is not to engage in any kind of eye contact and to avoid any verbal interaction other than the word NO! Most Gypsy scams work on a distraction-destruction mode. One Gypsy distracts you, while the other Gypsy robs you.

Home invasions are residential burglaries usually committed in the daytime and while the homeowners are present. Entrance may be through a back door or window or by distraction at the front door. A male driver will be close by, usually in a rental car, to aid in a quick escape. Two Gypsies rang my door bell.  When I got out they were unloading fertilizer on my garden.  While I was arguing with one that I did not order any fertilizers, the other went inside my home and stole my money. He knew exactly what closet and drawer my money was in.  They got away with five thousand euros. I haven’t figured out yet how they knew about it.  Somebody might have told them. But I cannot think of anybody knowing my hiding place.

You might see children walking up to various people and showing them a piece of torn newspaper. They position the newspaper right up close to each unsuspecting victim’s face to create a distraction so that they don’t notice that their valuables are being stolen. When you are relaxing, never completely drop your guard. Often you are being watched to catch you at a moment when you are not paying attention. Do not leave valuables in the open for others to see them. If you are approached while sitting down in a vulnerable position you should probably stand up and if asked something, anything, just firmly say NO! No is a universal word and they will get the picture immediately.

A shady flower Gypsy gives a flower to a girl and says flower for a pretty lady. He will then ask another person and then come back to you asking for five euros, the cost of the rose. They will chase you down as you are walking away, demanding their money. If you try and give the flower back, they will refuse to take it but continue to demand their money. Don’t get caught out; things are rarely free. If a man hands you a flower, it will not be free!

You could find at least two Gypsies blocking off each entrance to the stairs as you walk up them. As you walk past, they engage you and persist in asking you to participate in what they are doing. You may be asked to put out your finger or expose your wrist, and they will proceed to plait a piece of cotton around your wrist or finger. Once finished, the ornament will be tied off and they will then ask you for money. If you refuse, they then become angry. While you are arguing with them, a couple other Gypsies approach you and start manhandling you. This is the point where your phone or wallet is stolen, or you give in and give them a few euros just to allow you to leave safely. Be extremely aware if you are being engaged by two Gypsies at the same time.

You might be approached by a young Gypsy woman and ask if you spoke English. If you yessed, she will share a rehearsed storyline, which will be an attempt to tug at your heart strings, and at the end ask you for money. They might hand you a piece of paper which has the sob story written on it.

You might be asked to sign a petition for the starving people in Africa. The Gypsies will often claim to be working with a specific charity, however they are in plain clothes and show no identification whatsoever. If you do sign the partition they will then ask you how much you wish to donate to them. If you tell them that you don’t wish to donate, they then say “But you have signed. You have to pay” or something along those lines. Be assured that not a cent will go towards the charity that is being named.

You might see a Gypsy with a cardboard box and three round rubber discs. Under these rubber discs will be one white spot, and you are asked to pick the disc which has the spot under it. You will not win at this game. The scammer is very practiced at hiding the white spot, yet even if you are about to choose the right one you will be prevented from doing so by his team mates. That’s right! The dealer has one or two other scammers working with him pretending to be players, and who run interference to stop you winning. When there is no one gambling they act as lucky winners that just keep winning all time. When you are playing the game they will swoop and take your disk if you are about to win, and claim that they have won.

A woman might pick up a gold ring in delight and say something like “Oh my lucky day!” and then proceed to ask if you dropped it or if it is yours. You will probably say “No”, and then she will just give it to you. In return she will ask for a few dollars in exchange for her kindness, a finder fee. This ring is not gold nor does it have any monetary value at all.

You might see a beggar who has a sign which says words something like “I am sick with a certain disease and need money for medication”. You might have seen the man change from day to day but still have the same sign and sit in the same spot. You might have also seen a man with dogs and cats rotate from day to day. You might see Gypsies on their knees face down with a sign placed in front of them, or maybe just a collection hat or plate.

You might see a Gypsy walking through a carriage handing out a business card which had printed on it that he lost his job and has a wife and kids etc. Once he hands them all out, he comes back to collect his cards and also to collect money from anyone who would give him some. It is worth noting these cases the cards are not hand-written but printed, and so they have gone into some effort and expense and probably have thousands of them.

Gypsies pickpocket many people. This act many times is committed just as the train doors closed, so the victim dos not have time to realize that it had even happened before it was too late. The thief is always a young Gypsy of varying age, and they are always very quick. Whenever you are riding a metro you do need to pay close attention to your luggage and know where your valuable belongings are. A small backpack or your handbag sitting at your feet is like taking candy from a baby for a pick pocket.

A wallet in your back pocket is another target that you have painted on yourself. If you have a zip pocket at all, this would be your best bet to preserve your wallet and everything in it. If you can prevent it, try not to pull your wallet out and expose it while you are on the metro as it could be an easy snatch or show the pickpocket where you keep it. Be aware of the situation and protect your belongings, especially when the doors of the train are open.

Another very effective Gypsy trick is the baby toss. A doll resembling a baby, wrapped up in a blanket is thrown at the victim. While the victim panics and catches the pseudo-baby, Gypsies grab and pickpocket the victim’s valuables.

Liquid is spilled on you, and a Gypsy offers to help you clean up even if you reject. Your belongings are then easily swiped as you will be caught off guard. A harmless looking old Gypsy might offer to help.

Be aware of your surroundings and the people around you. Make sure you are not being followed, and if you think you are step into the nearest hotel or shop. You might avoid any ambush by taking this action. It is a common thing for Gypsies to distract the person who is drawing money out of an ATM while someone snatches the money from the other side. It only takes a split moment, causing you to look in another direction from a distraction and some quick hands can take your money.

You might see a Gypsy pretending to be asleep on a nearby bench or table and wait some to unsuspecting citizen to sit down for lunch. Parks are places where people relax, eat lunch, rest their feet after lots of walking, and all they are thinking about is taking a break, getting some rest, or planning what to do next. A Gypsy sleeping nearby hardly appears to be a threat, but this is the perfect situation for a pseudo-sleeping purse snatcher to assess their prey.

You might see a good-looking woman arguing with a street vendor. The vendor accuses her of shoplifting, which she vehemently denies. To prove her innocence, she starts taking off her clothes very slowly. Once she’s down to her underwear, the vendor apologizes and she leaves. Suddenly all the men in the crowd find out that their wallets have left too, thanks to a team of pickpockets working during the show.

Fortunetelling is the most recognizable of all Gypsy crimes. Everyone who enters is a potential victim. Fortunetelling establishments are found in every sizable city. Most who enter will pay their twenty euros and leave. Some will keep coming back until their life savings are gone. The victims are often those who are at a last resort stage of life and are often suffering from a lost love, death of a family member, or illness. Embarrassment leads to rare reporting and, if reported, the fortuneteller is gone.

The home repair cons are rarely reported crimes and often ignored by the law enforcement community. The driveway coating/sealing scam where the loss is one hundred euros is common. It looks good until the first rain. House painting and roof repair work are the same way. The homeowner is approached by several men in a pick-up truck (sometimes accompanied by children) who have pseudo-leftover materials from another job and they say they will do the repairs on the victim’s home for a stated dollar value to make extra money. This can also be an opening for a burglary. Who would refuse a child a drink of water on a hot day or the use of the bathroom? Guess who does the theft that’s not discovered until hours or days later? Who’s going to complain about a driveway-coating job that washed away? They are just prey.

Distraction theft is a store-diversion robbery. The crime is not planned in advance but more of a mood thing. The key is to create a diversion of some sort by a dozen Gypsies. After calm is restored, the store usually discovers all of its cash has mysteriously disappeared. Violence is never used but total confusion and pandemonium reign during the theft.

A mountain of money is being made in fraudulent insurance claims. Slip and falls and staged auto crashes are the most common. These are committed with little detection because the settlements are always made quickly and for cash. The amounts are never outrageous and are usually the “Just cover my medical bills” kind of a thing. The businesses involved are usually eager not to have an insurance claim on their record, so out comes the cash.

Gypsies snatch babies and children to use them as beggars and thieves. The kids are beaten and abused, with some even deliberately disfigured to increase their earning potential, as disabled beggars generate more income. Those who do not beg are forced to pick pockets, wash car windscreens, or shoplift. The children have to give every penny of their loot to the men in control.  Children under fourteen years of age cannot be prosecuted in Europe.  That’s why Gypsies use many children for their scams.

Famous economist Adam Smith at the age of four was kidnapped by Gypsies, though prompt action by his uncle soon effected his rescue. “He would have made, I fear, a poor Gypsy,” commented John Rae, his main biographer. A band of gypsies stole him away while visiting his grandfather. A posse was formed, the gypsy band was caught up with, and little Adam was soon returned to his mother. How different the history of economic ideas might have been if instead of his release, Adam Smith had grown up among the gypsies and made a living picking pockets!



Macron tried his hand at sports including boxing and wheelchair tennis to support Paris’ bid to host the 2024 Olympics on Saturday. Olympics always generate a lot of bribes and kickbacks for politicians.

Paris and Los Angeles are vying for the Games and as part of the French capital’s campaign organizers staged an Olympic Day where fans could try out various sports.

“Paris 2024 is a project supported by the whole of France,” said Macron.

“And it is important to send out the message that the head of state is fully on board.”

France’s interest in hosting the Games was a question of pride and optimism, insisted Macron, who at 39 years is the youngest president in French history.

Macron certainly looked fully on board as he gamely thrashed out a few points at wheelchair tennis on the Pont Alexandre-III over the River Seine and pulled on boxing gloves to spar with the boxers.

Doping is the use of banned athletic performance-enhancing drugs by athletic competitors. The use of banned drugs to enhance performance is considered unethical, and therefore prohibited, by most international sports organizations, including the International Olympic Committee. Furthermore, athletes taking explicit measures to evade detection exacerbates the ethical violation with overt deception and cheating.

Athletes seeking to avoid testing positive use various methods. The most common methods include:

  • Urine replacement, which involves replacing dirty urine with clean urine from someone who is not taking banned substances. Urine replacement can be done by catheterization or with a prosthetic penis such as The Original Whizzinator.
  • Diuretics, used to cleanse the system before having to provide a sample.
  • Blood transfusions, which increase the blood’s oxygen carrying capacity, in turn increasing endurance without the presence of drugs that could trigger a positive test result.

“There is the universal Olympic spirit, but when I play I always play to win,” said the former civil servant and investment banker who swept to victory in the French Presidential election in April and took office in May.

The corrupt International Olympic Committee (IOC) is expected to announce a decision on July 11 on whether to name the host for the 2024 and 2028 Games simultaneously. The IOC’s main meeting in Lima on September 13 will then vote on the host for both editions.

Paris has not hosted the Summer Olympics since 1924, and last hosted the Winter Olympics in Albertville 1992, because it did not offer large bribes to IOC.


Schwarzenegger urged people from both ends of the political spectrum to join a “crusade” to save the planet, after a Friday meeting with Macron. “It is absolutely imperative that we not make it a political issue,” he said.

“This is not the right versus the left because there is no liberal air or conservative air. We all breathe the same air. There is no liberal water or conservative water, we all drink the same water,” Schwarzenegger said.

Just a few weeks after Trump announced he was pulling America out of the Paris Climate accord, Schwarzenegger said all countries had to work together in order to protect the environment.

“It is extremely important in order for us to be successful in creating a green and clean future for our children and grandchildren, which is a responsibility that we have, to hand the world in better shape to the next generation than we inherited it,” he said.

“We all have to work together in order to get this done,” he said, adding that he and Macron had discussed the climate issue in depth during their meeting.

He praised the French leader as a formidable force for France and for the world, particularly on environmental issues, which were something that “we both feel very passionate about.”

We observe the irrationality of the doctrine of global warming, the naive belief that small variations of global temperature we experience have an anthropogenic origin!

Regulations run amok in the climate change agenda. The costs of successfully countering the buildup of greenhouse gases (GHG) in the atmosphere are huge—far larger than described in the media and by advocates. It requires the rapid, total phase out of fossil fuels (the leave them in the ground strategy), raising energy prices, and fundamentally changing production and consumption patterns, which would reduce living standards worldwide. The poor will be disproportionately harmed, both within the United States and everywhere.

The costs of reversing GHG emissions could be 1% of global GDP annually—or about $800 billion each year, which is approximately the size of the economy of Holland. Specific industries will be particularly affected—including manufacturing, energy production, mining, transportation, and some types of agriculture. Generally wealthy elites will not bear many of these costs; they will fall squarely on general middle-class citizens. A candid weighing of (very uncertain) benefits and costs and their distribution among populations for compensation is essential for any effective, durable action to address possible climate change.

Any reduction in global GHG emissions and a decline in the stock of GHG already in the atmosphere requires coordinated and major cutbacks in fossil fuels worldwide. Greenhouse gases circulate the globe, meaning that some countries will receive the benefits of costly mitigation taken on by others. Under these circumstances, the incentives to free ride are irresistible. Internal pressures to free ride will be particularly great in those countries that will incur the greatest mitigation costs, that have the weakest government institutions and limited rule of law, and that are big enough to chart their own course regardless of international shaming—Russia, China, India, Brazil, and even the United States. Successful international mitigation will require more than the small “feel good” adjustments currently portrayed by advocates, agency officials, and politicians. But high costs make durable international cooperation unlikely—at least until benefits are much clearer than they are now. Attention to the size of GHG mitigation costs and the corresponding global free-riding problem directs policy toward more fruitful aims.

The current state of debate about climate change is spitting science in the face and treating science like a piece of rubbish. Carbon dioxide is treated like a toxic gas by proponents of radical policies on climate change. Next it will be oxygen, it will be anything that you want on the chemical table. The Sun is a primary driver of climate change — and has a far greater impact than changes in CO2. Climate science is dangerously corrupted and co-opted by multiple anti-science forces and players.

Much of the reporting about climate change in the mainstream media is fake news. There are many fads and fashions that have sprung up around climate change. For example, the locavore movement, which stresses eating locally-produced food to save energy, actually increases greenhouse gases, because of the energy efficiencies achieved by larger and more established farms that benefit from economies of scale. Governor Jerry Brown had warned of a drought of immeasurable magnitude — a meaningless phrase, in scientific terms. The movement toward renewable energy sources, he said, was not a sign of progress, but regression toward the lower energy densities of the pre-industrial age. Belief in carbon pollution is like the superstitious beliefs of primitive civilizations, such as a 1933 newspaper article describing a drought in Syria that was blamed by locals on yo-yo toys!

For all the focus on carbon dioxide, the most important greenhouse gas in the climate system is water vapor. And carbon dioxide is not a pollutant, as the term is conventionally used. While it was true that the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide had been increasing and had passed 400 parts per million, the dominant effect of water vapor had helped flatten the greenhouse effect, such that the rise of global surface temperatures had slowed significantly.

Some climate scientists manipulated graphs to make climate change seem more severe than it was — for example, by representing temperature anomalies rather than absolute temperatures.

There is, in fact, some surface temperature warming, albeit less severe than conventional data sets showed. But the effect is more likely the result of fluctuations in energy output from the sun, which in turn affects water vapor. The major effect of cutting carbon dioxide emissions to zero would be to kill and hurt poor people and greatly harm animals and the environment.



At the 11th hour, the Italian government has vowed to rescue two troubled Venetian banks with the aid of a retail bank, plus billions of taxpayers’ cash. The government meets today to devise the rescue framework for Banca Popolare di Vicenza and Veneto Banca, the finance ministry told us.

Both banks face bankruptcy and European authorities say it is for Rome, not Brussels, to deal with their liquidation, involving selling off their good assets and transferring toxic assets to a bad bank, essentially financed by Rome.

Italy will stage the rescue along with some support from the country’s biggest retail bank Intesa Sanpaolo. Whereas Intesa has put a symbolic euro on the table, the cost to the Italian state will be around 10 billion euros ($11 billion).

The development comes amid deep concern within the 19-member eurozone at the parlous state of some Italian banks with Rome still to resolve the problem of piles of risky loans sitting on the books of some of them.

In its statement, the ministry said the government would be meeting “over the weekend to adopt necessary measures to ensure banking activity is fully operational, with protection for all current account holders, deposits and senior shares.”

Intesa Sanpaulo will pick up healthy assets so as to allow the normal opening of branches Monday morning.

In parallel, a bad bank will be created for toxic assets likely never to be repaid to creditors in an operation put at between 8.0 and 10 billion euros to the state.

We estimate the cost at 10 to 12 billion euros.

The state will also have to take on board the cost of between 3,500 and 4,000 bank employees set to lose their jobs as well as associated early retirement costs.

Intesa Sanpaolo told us it would be party to the operation — but laid down conditions, not least an insistence its capital ratio and share dividend policy remain unaffected.

The bank said it would pay a symbolic sum of one euro in the process and would not raise any capital to fund a rescue exercise which became necessary after the discovery of a capital hole resulting from bad loans.

The president of Italy’s industry group Confindustria, Vincenzo Boccia, told us the rescue proposal is a sensible offer.

The Venetian banks are not the first to hit the headlines in recent months.

Earlier this month, the EU anti-trust authority approved Italy’s massive rescue of the country’s troubled third-largest bank, Monte dei Paschi di Siena (BMPS).

Founded in Siena in 1472, BMPS has been in deep trouble since the worst of the eurozone debt crisis, with the Rome government set to take a majority stake on a provisional basis to save the bank from bankruptcy.

That plan would allow Italy to inject capital in line with EU rules, whilst limiting the burden for Italian taxpayers after the lender, the world’s oldest bank, failed to raise funds on the market last year.

In exchange, Rome must accept a drastic EU-approved restructuring plan for BMPS expected to involve mass layoffs.

The European Central Bank said in December that BMPS was short of a staggering 8.8 billion euros in capital.

Weakened by the disastrous purchase in 2007 of the Antonveneta bank, BMPS quickly drifted into scandal when its management team was accused of fraud and misuse of funds.

A replacement of population is under way in Italy. But if you open the mainstream newspapers, you barely find these news. No television station has dedicated any time to what is happening. No criticism is allowed. The invasion is considered a done deal.

In 2016, 176,554 migrants landed in Italy — an eight-fold increase since 2014. In 2015, there were 103,792. In 2014, there were 66,066. In 2013, there were just 22,118. In the last four years, 427,000 migrants reached Italy. In only the first five months of this year, 2017, Italy received 10% of the total number of migrants of the last four years.

There are days when the Italian navy and coast guard rescue 1,700 migrants in 24 hours. The country is exhausted. There are Italian villages where one-tenth of the population is already made up of new migrants. We are talking about small towns of 220 residents and 40 migrants.

One of the major aspects of this demographic revolution is that it is taking place in a country which is dramatically aging. According with a new report from the Italian Office of Statistics, Italy’s population will fall to 53.7 million in half a century — a loss of seven million people. Italy, which has one of the world’s lowest fertility rates, will lose between 600,000 to 800,000 citizens every year. Immigrants will number more than 14 million, about one-fourth of the total population. But in the most pessimistic scenario, the Italian population could drop to 46 million, a loss of 14 million people.

In 2050, a third of Italy’s population will be made up of foreigners, according to a UN report, “Replacement Migration: Is It a Solution to Decline and Aging Populations”, which designs a cultural melting-pot that could explode in cultural and social tensions. The level of arrivals will fall from 300,000 to 270,000 individuals per year by 2065; during the same period, it is expected that 14.4 million people will arrive. Added to the more than five million immigrants currently in Italy, 37% of the population is expected to be foreigners: more than one out of every three inhabitants.

In addition, the humanitarian-aid system has been hit by new scandals. “The investigative hypothesis to be verified is that subjects linked to ISIS act as logistical support to migration flows”, was a warning just delivered in front of the Schengen Committee, to the Italian anti-mafia and counterterrorism prosecutor, Franco Roberti. There are now judges investigating the connection between the migrants’ smugglers in North Africa and the Italian NGOs rescuing them in the Mediterranean. People-smugglers bring the migrants to the NGOs’ ships, which then reach Italian seaports. Another legal enquiry has been opened about the mafia’s economic interests in managing the migrants after their arrival.

Only 2.65 percent of those migrants who arrived in Italy were granted asylum as genuine refugees, according to the United Nations. The other people are apparently not fleeing wars and genocide. Yet, despite all this evidence, one cannot compare the migrants to the Jews fleeing Nazism. Pope Francis, for example, recently compared the migrants’ centers to Nazi “concentration camps”. One wonders where are the gas chambers, medical “experiments,” crematoria, slave labor, forced marches and firing squads. Italian newspapers are now running articles about the “Mediterranean Holocaust”, comparing the migrants dead by trying to reach the southern of Italy to the Jews gassed in Auschwitz. Another journalist, Gad Lerner, to support the migrants, described their condition with the same word coined by the Nazis against the Jews: untermensch, inferior human beings. These comparisons are spread by the media for a precise reason: shutting down the debate.

To understand how shameful these comparisons are, we have to take a look at the cost of every migrant to Italy’s treasury. Immigrants, once registered, receive a monthly income of 900 euros per month (30 euros per day for personal expenses). Another 900 euros go to the Italians who house them. And 600 euros are needed to cover insurance costs. Overall, every immigrant costs to Italy 2,400 euros a month. A policeman earns half of that sum. And a naval volunteer who saves the migrants receives a stipend of 900 euros a month. Were the Nazis so kind with their Jewish untermenschen?

The cost of migrants on Italy’s public finances is already immense and it will destroy the possibility of any economic growth. “The overall impact on the Italian budget for migrant spending is currently quantified at 2.6 billion [euros] for 2015, expected to be 3.3 billion for 2016 and 4.2 for 2017, in a constant scenario”, explains the Ministry of the Economy. If one wants to put this in proportion, these numbers give a clearer idea of how much Italy is spending in this crisis: in 2017, the government is spending 1.9 billion euros for pensions, but 4.2 billion euros for migrants, and 4.5 billion euros for the national housing plan against 4.2 billion euros for migrants.

The Italian cultural establishment is now totally focused on supporting this mass migration. The Italian film nominated at the Academy Awards last year is Fire at Sea, in which the main character is a doctor treating the migrants upon their arrival. Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi carried with him 27 DVDs of the film to a session of the European Council. Italy’s commercial television channels produced many television programs about the migrants, such as “Lampedusa”, from the name of the Italian island. 100,000 Italians even took the streets of Milan for a “rally of solidarity” with the migrants. What “solidarity” can there be if half a million people have been rescued by the Italian government and the whole country seems determined to open its doors to all of North Africa?

Winston Churchill was convinced that the Mediterranean was the “soft underbelly” of Hitler’s Europe. It has now become the soft underbelly of Europe’s transformation into Eurabia.




When it comes to insults, no-one does it quite like the Italians. Whether it’s a simple hand gesture or an imaginative curse, they have a gift for expressing displeasure, even if their insults don’t quite translate into other languages. Here’s our pick of the most creative rude terms, but be warned: these are not to be used at dinner with your Italian in-laws.

Guineas: Italian-Americans

Dagos: South Europeans

Sfigato: Loser

Tread carefully with this one: it can be used to refer to someone who is dorky, uncool, or simply unlucky but the literal meaning is very vulgar. It comes from the word ‘figa’, a northern Italian term to refer to female genitalia, and literally means someone with no sex life.

Li mortacci tua! Your bad dead ancestors!

Family is everything in Italy, so you know you’re in trouble is someone starts insulting yours – especially dead ones. This Roman expression implies the recipient is descended from ancestors of questionable morality. Not to be used lightly.

Palloso: Like a ball

The word ‘palloso’ literally means ‘like a ball’, but is used colloquially to mean ‘boring’ or ‘tiresome’ – or even as a translation for the English slang-term ‘square’. It can be used to describe books or films as well as people, and basically means they have no distinguishing or interesting features.

Secchione: Big bucket

‘Secchione’ means nerd – someone who knows a lot of things and likely doesn’t have much of a social life. It comes from the term for bucket, suggesting that the listener has a large brain capable of holding lots of things.

Stronzo: Turd

This is much stronger than the English equivalent and considered to be very vulgar – younger people often use it playfully among friends, but it’s best to avoid it unless you’re totally sure it would be well-received. The specific connotations vary, but it’s often used when someone is arrogant and doesn’t care about others. Bonus fact: it’s actor Colin Firth’s favourite Italian word.

Cavolo: Cabbage

Sounds harmless? This is one of the safer terms on this list: “Cavolo” is simply a less aggressive way of saying the far more offensive “cazzo”, which translates as “shit”. It’s similar to English-speakers who replace ruder terms with “sugar” or “fudge”.

For example: “Che cavolo vuoi?” (literally: what the cabbage do you want?) The English equivalent would probably be: “What the heck do you want?”

Rompicoglioni: Ball-breaker

In English we would say a “pain in the neck” or “pain in the ass”. In Italy, however, the anatomy is slightly different and you would say “rompicoglioni”, or “ball-breaker” in English. It comes from the expression: “Rompere i coglioni” (to break someone’s balls), which you would use to let someone know that they are really getting on your nerves. For example: “Mi rompi i coglioni!”

Sei duro come il muro: You’re as hard as a wall

Here, ‘duro’ (hard) means stupid, similar to using the terms ‘thick’ or ‘dense’ in English. It’s all about the context here, because as in English, ‘duro’ can also mean tough or severe.

Coglione: Testicle

On the subject of balls, a single “coglione” is used to refer to an idiot. For example: “Tutti in ufficio pensano che sei un coglione!” (Everyone in the office thinks you’re an idiot).

Cesso: Toilet

If you think someone is unattractive in Italy you don’t have to stop at “brutto” (ugly). Literally translating as “toilet”, “cesso” is used to describe someone who is particularly unpleasant to look at. Use with caution.

Porca miseria: Pig poverty

This phrase might baffle non-natives. “Porca” does translate as pig – but in this context it is an adjective that is perhaps best translated as “bloody” or “damn”, used frequently by hassled Italians. The equivalent would probably be “bloody hell!” But we have to say, this porcine variant has a certain ring to it. For example: “Porca miseria, it’s freezing out here!”

Porca paletta: Pig spade

Noticing a piggy theme here? If you’re familiar with Italian you’ll know that “paletta” is a spade. Precede it with “porca”, however, and it becomes an exclamation of frustration, similar to “porca miseria”, but milder. Stronger variations include “porca puttana” (porky prostitute) and “porco dio” (porky God).

Fava: Broad bean

If you tell someone ‘non capisci una fava’ (you don’t understand a broad bean), you’re basically saying they don’t know anything. Particularly in Florence, you can also tell someone ‘sei una fava’ to let them know you think they’re extremely stupid.


Raniero Mancinelli cannot afford to drop a stitch. Pope Francis is creating five new cardinals next week and the race is on to have their scarlet robes ready in time.
The Italian tailor’s family shop, located just outside the walls of Vatican City, hums to the sounds of customers from every corner of the Catholic world.

God is the biggest hoax of all times! The relationship people have with the real world has changed. Throughout time, individuals have tried to escape the reality of life, through religion, drugs, or alcohol. Today, modern technologies allow a genuine democratization of the unreal. Everyone can live in a parallel world consisting of gods, prophets, avatars, churches, video games, augmented reality, or sitcoms. Each can lead an alternative life by proxy.

As a Filipino nun sizes up the least expensive chalice on offer from one display, a young Brazilian priest is buying reams of gold embroidery.

Nearby an Irish colleague is squeezing into a shiny liturgical robe that comes in just one size.

Mancinelli, who turns 80 next month, is on first name terms with many of his visitors. “You’ll be the first black pope!”, he jokes with one African bishop, who shoots back, “I hope not!”

But there is little time for tomfoolery. In the workroom at the back of the shop the veteran craftsman’s trusty “Necchi” sewing machine from the 1950s is waiting, and half-finished cassocks and mozzettas (short capes) hang from a rail.

Atheism is the smart zeitgeist. Today we know very well we are just a sort of apes, all religions are wrong, there is no God, there is no afterlife, and all miracles are hoaxes. God is the most unpleasant character in all fiction! But many people refuse to accept reality that when they die that will be the very end of them, that they will cease to exist.  Hoi polloi live on wishful thinking that they will live forever near God in another life! Hitler used to say that hoi polloi believe big lies, not small lies!

All religions are big lies. Basic to religion is a presumed distinction between humans and animals, and a presumed uniqueness of humans in the universe. Based on evolutionary biology and astronomy, science rejects this stupid distinction. God is imaginary and religion is a complete illusion. Belief in God is nothing but a silly superstition, which leads a significant portion of the population to be delusional.

The machine runs like a “Ferrari”, the outfitter says. But it still takes him at least a week to make each new bespoke robe.

Five new so-called “Princes of the Church” — from El Salvador, Laos, Mali, Spain and Sweden — will be created on Wednesday. Four of them have ordered their ceremonial garb from Mancinelli.

Scarlet silk

While some nipped over to the Italian capital after their nominations to submit to the tape measure, one future cardinal dispatched his personal secretary to the Eternal City with his measurements.

Sometimes Mancinelli’s job is made easier when he has to dress longstanding customers for their big day, though he admits, “I still have to check the measurements a bit, to see if they’ve put on weight around the stomach!”

One key part of every outfit sits ready in a range of sizes on a shelf: the scarlet “biretta”, a four-peaked hat which each new cardinal will receive from the pope, who places it on their heads as they kneel before him.

Cassock, silk belt and mozzetta must be delivered to the Vatican a few days before the big event. The light, soft fabrics used must come from official suppliers and the colour must be exact: there is no picking any old scarlet.

Little luxuries which proud servants of God may have purchased to mark the occasion in the past are not as popular since the election in 2013 of a pope who called for “a poor Church for the poor”.

“They only buy the bare necessities now,” Mancinelli said.

“Under Pope Francis, the cardinals want things a little simpler. Before we only used silk, whereas now we mix silk and wool, fabrics that are a bit cheaper, a bit more modest”.

Sock fashion

When he became a bishop, the then Jorge Bergoglio sought out a simple metal cross from Mancinelli.

And since the Argentine’s elevation to pope, the minimalist trend has caught on.

The heavy gold crosses set with precious stones on display in one of the shop’s glass cases are on their way to becoming museum pieces. Some prelates even plump for modestly-priced wooden crosses.

Outfits generally have become less extravagant down the ages, particularly since the late 1960s.

Out have gone long capes, mantles and flat hats. Gone too are buckled shoes.

Long trains, still worn by the more audacious cardinals, are a rarity.

Most now plump for modern, plain shoes — and even the once-obligatory matching scarlet socks are optional.

As for the black non-ceremonial cassocks, they no longer have to sport 33 buttons, especially if the cardinal is short.

Mancinelli’s proudest achievement is having once decked out 12 new cardinals at once, and he is not about to hang up his scissors.

“I dress them from the North Pole to the South Pole! Why should I put my sewing machine away?” he quips.

Bible and Qur’an express toleration for slavery and regard women as subordinate to men. Religious morality is impoverished to the point of bankruptcy. If we rely on religion, there is a certainty we will fail. Religion has nothing to offer but taboos without a clue.

The level of socio-pathology caused by a religious meme or meme complex depends, at least in part, on the degree to which it leverages compulsion as part of its reproductive strategy. Religious compulsion might refer to the level of threat and fear a religion uses to win and keep converts, or the degree of obsessive thought and compulsive behavior it engenders in believers. But compulsion is likely to be just one part of the picture, because the experience of many religious believers is that they practice their faith freely and happily, even when this may seem dubious to outsiders.

When Jesus announced that we should cut off body parts, he was telling others to harm themselves. There were entire monastic orders that castrated themselves because Jesus said in Matthew 19:12 that “he that is able to receive it, let him receive it.” Every year in the United States we read about one or two men who mutilate themselves in order to prove their obedience to Jesus!  This only shows that Jesus was immoral.

Chryse Pege, Golden Source, is the most infamous mafia of the Greek Orthodox Church, organized by the late archbishop Christodoulos.  The corrupt Church of Greece greatly contributes to the moral decline of Greek society.  Nevertheless, religion is protected by lèse–majesté! The barbarity and corruption of Greek bishops is beyond imagination, heavily involved in skulduggery, orgies, trial rigging, drug and antiquities smuggling, money washing, robberies, inheritance dirty games, election manipulation, and so it goes. Bishop Ambrosios of Kalavryta, godfather of Chryse Pege Golden Source mafia, blasted Education Minister Nikos Filis over his decision to replace the current religious studies from the school curriculum with a lesson on comparative world religions. During his speech at Church, Ambrosios pleaded to Jesus that Fili’s arm would rot before he signed the decree! Ambrosios also had a few words for those not fasting by eating meat. He said he hoped the meat would turn to poison and puncture their stomach!



83,928 migrants and refugees entered Europe by sea in 2017 through June 21, with almost 85 per cent arriving in Italy and the remainder divided between Greece, Cyprus and Spain. This compares with 215,997 arrivals across the region through 21 June 2016.


Flavio Di Giacomo told us that some 180 migrants were rescued yesterday on the open sea and are being brought to land in Italy. He added more than 2,500 migrants who had been rescued in the past few days (including last weekend) arrived safely and have been transferred to different locations in Italy.

The roughly 72,000 migrants recorded so far this year by Italy’s Ministry of the Interior compares with January-through-June figures of 70,222 men, women and children in 2016 and 70,329 in 2015 (See chart below).

The International Organization for Migration told us this week that the total number of Syrian migrants registered as having arrived by sea is 1,164 – making Syrians the fourteenth most common nationality. In 2016 1,200 Syrians landed by sea in Italy.

IOM Libya Christine Petré told us on Thursday (22 June) that the remains of 18 migrants found in Garaboli were retrieved and buried by local citizens. Two migrants were reportedly found alive and were transferred to Trig al Seka detention centre in Tripoli. On the same day, the remains of five men were found in Tajoura, west of the Libyan capital Tripoli.

As of 22 June, 10,034 migrants were rescued in Libyan waters and the remains of 303 women, men and children have been found along the Libyan coast.

IOM’s Missing Migrants Project (MMP) notes total deaths on the Mediterranean this year now stand at 2,108. Although that total is more than 800 fewer than the number of deaths that were recorded at this time last year, it nonetheless marks the fourth consecutive year migrant deaths on the Mediterranean Sea have exceeded 2,000 and brings the total number of deaths on the Mediterranean since early 2013 to nearly 15,000 – or a daily average of 10 men, women and children since this current emergency began.

Worldwide, the IOM Missing Migrants Project (MMP) reports that there have been 2,848 fatalities through 21 June (see chart below) with the Mediterranean region accounting for the largest proportion of deaths – over 70 per cent of the global total.

MMP regional figures for today reflect the following inclusions since Tuesday (20 June): two incidents on the US/Mexico border; a train accident in Central America; 110 missing off the coast of Zuwarah, Libya, as reported by survivors rescued by Libyan fishermen last Saturday; seven missing in the Central Mediterranean as reported by survivors taken to Messina, Italy; and five dead off the coast of Sabratha, Libya.  These data do not include the 23 victims newly reported in Libya on Thursday, nor reports of three bodies discovered this week near Falfurrias, Texas.

One billion niggers and ragheads will try to invade EU in ten years.  Smugglers in cahoots with NGOs make billions of euros every month.  This madness brings uncontrollable crimes and the grand clash of cultures. It will cost Europeans trillions of euros, the loss of their countries, and the loss of their freedom.  This is the end of Graecoroman civilization and the start of the global caliphate. So long Europe!  So long!

In our digital age with the internet and mobile phones, everyone knows about our prosperity and lifestyle. The answer to illegal migration is not fatalistically to sit back and wait for the migrant influx. The answer is, based on a new starting-date, to change EU’s outdated and unsustainable welfare policies, which stem from a pre-globalization era, and in this way actively work to make it less attractive for millions of migrants to venture to EU in the first place.

European leaders appear not to care that their continuing migration policies and welfare systems support an entire industry of human traffickers, who prey on the desire of hopeful migrants to reach Europe; the traffickers are making billions. Migrant smuggling has emerged as one of the most profitable and widespread criminal activities for organized crime in EU. The migrant smuggling business is now a large, profitable and sophisticated criminal market, comparable to the European drug markets. European politicians are indirectly responsible for the existence of this industry.

We are – these days – confronted not only with the old, well-known, quite natural, because gradual and evolutionary, phenomenon of individual migration but with a conceptually different phenomenon of mass migration. This is something else, not only quantitatively. Many politicians and their fellow travelers in the media and in the academy either do not understand this difference or pretend not to. They try to deal with mass migration as if it was the case of individual migration, which it is not. To my great regret, some old-fashioned liberals – who are traditionally against all kinds of borders – are making the same mistake, the mistake of not looking carefully enough and of not differentiating.

Everything indicates that it has become more or less a universal issue. Europe makes mass migration – due to its peculiar institutional arrangements and to its apparent absence of democracy – much easier. Mass migration has become a new, innovative social experiment of our era. The whole European continent has been transformed into an experimental laboratory.

The most important cause of the current mass migration is the radical shift in ideas, not a new, more tragic than in the past situation in countries from where the people migrate. As a consequence, people in many unsuccessful, poor and underdeveloped, broken, non-democratic, ungoverned or chaotic countries got the feeling that they have a right to migrate, to depart to more successful, rich, developed, orderly functioning, democratic countries which – in addition to it – offer generous social benefits to all newcomers.

It is – methodologically – very important to see that the concentrating on failed or broken countries covers only the supply-side of the whole story. This represents a huge limitless migration reservoir. It – in itself – cannot bring about migration. To make mass migration possible, there needs to be also a demand-side.

The demand for migrants – in spite of all the political rhetoric suggesting the opposite – comes from Europe. It was not only the reckless and ill-conceived explicit welcoming gesture made by Angela Merkel and some other leading European politicians in the summer of 2015. This was just the last drop. The European – perhaps more implicit than explicit – demand for mass migration has several distinct, but mutually reinforcing factors – some of them ideological, some systemic, some policy-driven.

The modern or post-modern ideological confusion connected with the ideas of multiculturalism, cultural relativism, continentalism (as opposed to the idea of nation-state), human-rightism and political correctness becomes the principle factor. It destroyed the traditional way of looking at the origin and organization of human society. It replaced the orientation towards a nation (or a nation-state) with continental or planetary thinking. It proclaimed that diversity was more than social cohesion and homogeneity. It sacrificed civil rights in favour of human rights. It changed the concept of rights from negative to positive ones. It incorporated migration among human rights, etc., etc.;

Not less important is the fact that the European (and Western) society has been gradually transformed from a society heralding performance, results and achievements, production and work to a society based on entitlements. Due to it, the economic and social policy has switched from the concept of a market economy to the concept of a social market economy where the adjective social has become more important than the nouns market and economy. Potential migrants understood the significance of this destructive shift very rapidly. They are not coming into Europe as a labour force but as recipients of all kinds of social benefits;

There is one Europe-specific factor. The original, post-second world war concept of the European integration has been transformed with the Maastricht and Lisbon treaties into the concept of unification. It has led

– to the weakening of nation-states and to the fundamental undermining of their sovereignty;

– to the elimination of borders throughout the European continent. Instead of introducing easily crossable borders, the borders were abolished with all kinds of unavoidable consequences;

– to the weakening of democracy and to the creation of a post-democratic, bureaucratically run Europe. It enormously enhanced the role of the European strongest country, Germany, and – symmetrically – it lowered the role of smaller EU member states. It brought about a typical imperial structure of society;

These processes led to the reappearance of old dreams about creating a new Europe and a new European man, someone who would be entirely deprived of his/her roots in individual nation-states. Migrants are believed to become the ideal input in the pan-European society, hence, the more of them, the better. I don´t suggest that this intention has been openly and explicitly formulated by all European politicians, but this mode of thinking has become – at least implicitly – a driving force behind the current migration deadlock.

Mass migration into Europe – much more than terrorism, which is just a supplementary factor – threatens to destroy European society and to create a new Europe which would be much different from the past as well as from a libertarian way of thinking.

Europe is committing suicide. By the end of the lifespans of most people currently alive Europe will not be Europe and the peoples of Europe will have lost the only place the world we had to call home. This cataclysm has two causes: mass immigration and Europeans’ loss of faith in European beliefs, traditions, and legitimacy. Europeans feel guilty about their past; they’re jaded, weighted down by an existential tiredness, a feeling that their corner of the world has run out of steam and that their culture, for which they have insufficient regard, might just as well be replaced by another.

Tory MP Enoch Powell, one of the most brilliant and accomplished men of his time, in 1968 gave an extraordinary prescient oration, the so-called Rivers of Blood speech, in which he warned of the long-term results of UK immigration policy. Instead of prompting the immigration controls that 75% of his countrymen wanted even back then, the speech ended Powell’s career and made his name synonymous with hatred. Three out of four members of the general public were with him, but to the elite he was Hitler – and his instant official disgrace made it impossible, during the ensuing decades, to have anything remotely resembling an honest public debate on immigration. The Muslims kept pouring in, and though most Brits disapproved, they kept their heads down, shrugging silently. What else could they do? They knew that if they spoke up, they’d get the Powell treatment.

Meanwhile, slightly different versions of the same tragedy (or farce?) were being played out across northwestern Europe. Everywhere, the natives were lied to by their politicians and media: the scale of immigration, they were told, was far lower than widely believed; their country had always been “a nation of immigrants”; immigrants represented a net economic asset; crime statistics were inflated; and, naturally, Islam was a religion of peace. Those who criticized immigration – because they saw their culture disappearing, their secular democracy challenged, their taxes going to support indolent, criminal aliens, and their own access to housing and schools cut off by policies that favored foreigners – were called racists and nationalists, were accused of being fixated on skin color, and were ridiculed for failing to have a sophisticated enough appreciation of the value of cultural diversity.

If Britain had Powell’s speech, France had a strange prediction, Le Camp des Saints (1973), in which Jean Raspail envisioned a rapid conquest of western Europe by shiploads of Third Worlders crossing the Mediterranean. Just as Merkel triggered the latest immigrant tsumani by setting out a welcome mat, in Raspail’s book the invasion is set off by an ill-advised invitation by the Belgian government. Le Camp des Saints is deeply unpleasant in its depiction of the immigrant hordes, but although it was almost universally dismissed as racist, it predicted with uncomfortable precision Europe’s response to today’s alien influx – from the dithering politicians to the naively magnanimous churchmen.

The Dutchmen Pim Fortuyn and Theo van Gogh, who were demonized for criticizing mass Islamic immigration, ended up slain. Oriana Fallaci’s cry of outrage, The Rage and the Pride (2002), sold millions. How long ago all this seems! Fortuyn and Fallaci gained innumerable admirers. But what difference did any of it make? At certain moments all those years ago, some form of salvation seemed just around the corner. Yet the elites retained their power and kept banging away at the lies. And things just got worse.

Not just worse, crazier. When terrorist acts occurred, they were treated as one-offs, unrelated to immigration or Islam. British police covered up mass rapes of English girls by Muslim men for fear of being called racist. Rape victims kept mum for fear of inflicting visa problems upon their assailants, or, more generally, for fear of contributing to Islamophobia. Courts protected brutal Muslim criminals, some of them illegal aliens, from expulsion for fear they’d face trouble in their homelands – never mind the trouble they’d already caused to any number of European natives. While preachers of sharia Jew-killing were tolerated, if not presented with awards for being exemplary community leaders and bridge builders, critics of those preachers were put on trial. Europeans were told repeatedly that their nations’ imperial histories obliged them to shelter descendants of their former colonial subjects; but no one ever talked this way about the Turks’ own Ottoman Empire. And when Eastern European leaders kept out Muslims – and thereby kept violent crime, welfare costs, and other horrors that were becoming increasingly familiar in Western Europe – EU honchos railed at them to open their borders and share in the nightmare.

Under Communism, Eastern Europeans retained the tragic sense of life that many Western Europeans had long since lost; later, freed from Soviet despotism, they joined the EU only to find themselves being ordered around again – this time, being commanded to open their borders to what they, if not their Western European counterparts, recognized quite clearly as tyranny, though in a form different from the tyranny they had lived under. To these EU diktats they said no, in thunder. Eastern Europe’s experience with totalitarian oppression was so recent and so long that it is still able to discover real meaning in the word freedom – a word that educated Western Europeans have been taught for decades now to pronounce with a sneer.

Swedish prime minister Fredrik Reinfeldt actually told his people, in a televised speech, that they were themselves uninteresting and that the nation handed down by their forebears for generation after generation belonged more properly to the masses who were currently pouring in from the Muslim world. Any self-respecting people would have been outraged and – well, would have done to Reinfeldt what the British elite did to Enoch Powell. But no, the Swedes just nodded in acceptance. Their betters had been telling them this sort of thing for so long that they were used to it.

We witness the crime of breathtakingly tragic readiness of millions of supposedly responsible adults to betray their country and culture, their antecedents and their posterity, to an alien and minatory invader. The craven European elites have, unforgivably, opened the city gates to let in the Trojan horse.

We – as a matter of principle and quite resolutely – protest against the decision of EU to launch infringement procedures against member states, in connection with their refusal to accept migrants on the basis of Brussels-dictated quotas. We protest against the intentions to punish us and force us into obedience.

Thanks to this step taken by the European Commission, those who did not know it so far, can now see, what is the genuine position of the member states within the European Union, and what kind of intentions the EU top leaders have with us.

What happened is a new, unprecedented move. We don´t accept it. We refuse mandatory settlements of foreigners on the territory of our state. We don´t wish the transformation of our country into a multicultural society of unadaptive communities, as we see them in France and Great Britain today. Not to speak of terrorism that we see happening almost every day, in connection with such massive migration.

We don´t agree with the argument that we have to be there, that we have to be present at the decision making table, that we must be part of the hard core of EU. We have been a part of the EU decision making process for many years, and we know that we do not make the decisions. Our presence there has no real importance. Our voice is being ignored. The decisions are not made by us. They are made about us.

Let us not be blackmailed by threats of termination of EU subsidies. We do not need them, and we do not want them. We refuse both our payments to Brussels, as well as the money coming from Brussels. We refuse the harmful and violently pushed through EU policy as a whole.

This leads us to the only possible and necessary conclusion. The time has come to start preparing our exit from EU. It is the only way to protect and save our state, which we have inherited from our ancestors, and which we have a duty to pass on to future generations as an independent entity.


Spain rescues more than 200 migrants from Med

Spanish coastguards taxied more than 200 migrants on Saturday as they attempted to make the perilous sea crossing from north Africa to Europe. Spain’s state maritime rescue service told us that 224 people had been rescued from five vessels in the Strait of Gibraltar and the Alboran Sea, which separate Spain from Morocco.

The first rescues occurred in the early hours, the spokesman said, with dozens rescued south of Gibraltar from three boats.

Another 72 were rescued later after being spotted by a plane belonging to Europe’s border agency, Frontex.

Spain’s sea rescue service told us on Thursday that it had saved more than 400 migrants this week alone.

The relatively short sea crossing from Morocco to Spain is a popular route taken by migrants from sub-Saharan and north Africa in their quest to reach Europe.

According to the International Organisation for Migration, 3,314 people attempted this crossing between January 1 and April 30 this year. They recorded 59 deaths over the same period in this part of the Mediterranean.
