Power & Profit Fuel War on Cash in Europe:

But who benefits from the War on Cash?

In the wake of the attack on the Christmas market in Berlin in December, the European Commission granted customs and police authorities sweeping new powers to seize cash or precious metals carried by “suspect individuals” entering the EU. People carrying more than €10,000 euros in cash already have to declare this at customs when entering the EU. The new rules would allow authorities to seize money (or precious metals or bitcoin) below that threshold “where there are suspicions of criminal activity.”

It was the latest step in the War on Cash. The powers that want to kill off cash include private and central banks, fintech firms, Silicon Valley magnates like Tim Cook and Bill Gates, telecom behemoths, credit card giants, assorted NGOs, a bewildering alphabet soup of UN agencies and many national governments. They all have their own disparate motives for taking out physical money. Continue reading »

EU leaders call Trump’s condemnation of Europe’s catastrophic Muslim migration policy a “declaration of war”:

From shaking things up in Washington to causing extreme confusion and butt-hurt for current leaders in France and Germany, one could say the European establishment doesn’t know whether to shit or go blind. (Kind of like the American establishment)

Germany’s New Propaganda Bureau:

Big Brother is Watching YOU!

  • A married couple, Peter and Melanie M., were prosecuted and convicted in July 2016 of creating a Facebook group that criticized the government’s migration policy. Also, in July 2016, 60 people suspected of writing “hate speech” online had their homes raided by German police.
  • None of the above seems to be enough, however, for the president of the Bundestag, Norbert Lammert, from Angela Merkel’s CDU party, who believes that what Facebook is already doing against “hate speech” is not enough. According to the CDU politician, there is a need for more legislation.
  • The German government’s view of what constitutes “hate speech” is highly selective and appears limited to protecting the government’s own policies on immigration from legitimate criticism.
  • When massive antisemitism swept large German cities in the summer of 2014, for example, no such anti-racist zeal was manifest on the part of the German government. On the contrary, there were instances of authorities practically facilitating hate speech. In July 2014, Frankfurt police let mainly Muslim “protesters” use their van’s megaphone to belt out slogans of incitement in Arabic, including the repeated chanting of “Allahu Akbar” and that Jews are “child murderers”.
  • Firebombing a synagogue, on the other hand, is simply an “act of protest”.

Officials in Germany’s Interior Ministry are urging Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière to establish a “Defense Center against Disinformation” (Ab­wehr­zen­trum ge­gen Des­in­for­ma­ti­on) to combat what they call “political disinformation,” a euphemism for “fake news.”

“The acceptance of a post-truth age would amount to political capitulation,” the officials told Maizière in a memo, which also disclosed that the bureaucrats at the Interior Ministry are eager to see “authentic political communication” remain “defining for the 21st century.”

In two separate, and quite striking interviews with Germany’s Bild (paywall) and London’s Sunday Times (paywall), Donald Trump did what he failed to do in his first US press conference, and covered an extensive amount of policy and strategy, much of which however will likely please neither the pundits, nor the markets.

Google translation (original article in German down below.):

Disclosed: refugees commit 556,000 crimes – media and politicians are silent:

This number does not appear in any periodical article, it has not been published anywhere yet it is correct. This is even an “official” number of the BKA. The problem is that the state police department has tried everything to hide this monstrous figure from the public. The author Stefan Schubert provides with this article explosive background information on his bookbills.

By Stefan Schubert

In search of my current book ” No-Go-Areas – How the State Capitulated Before Foreigner Crime “, I’ve scoured countless statistics and police papers, secretly talked to policemen and secrets, and I’ve seen public-like papers and probably the most recent one Lie of the elites pushed. According to this, “allegedly” refugees commit fewer offenses “, as, for example, the Süddeutsche Zeitung headlines in large letters. The ARD-Tagesschau sounds like this. And despite this, despite the fact that the facts are the opposite. Continue reading »

Investigation Launched After Pig Heads Hung On Site of Future Mosque:

The Dijon prosecutor has launched an investigation after a number of pig heads were hung on the gates of a building recently purchased by an Islamic association prior to its conversion to a place of worship.

Six sawn-halves of pigs heads were discovered on the gates of the building in Genlis, a small town near Dijon, France on Friday morning. Further to the pig heads, further “cold cuts” of pork were discovered thrown into the yard.

France’s Le Figaro reports the comments of the local Mayor, who said the Association of Socioculture and Muslim Culture of Genlis (ASCMG) had “acquired this building with the aim of making it a place of worship in the future. This announcement, made in the regional press last week, had unleashed [bad feelings]”. Continue reading »

EU Parliament Committee Votes To Give Robots Rights (And A Kill Switch):

Foreseeing a rapidly approaching age of autonomous artificial intelligence, a European Parliament committee has voted to legally bestow electronic personhood to robots. The status includes a detailed list of rights, responsibilities, regulations, and a “kill switch.”

The committee voted by 17 votes to two, with two abstentions, to approve a draft report written by Luxembourg MEP Mady Delvaux, who believes “robots, bots, androids and other manifestations of artificial intelligence” will spawn a new industrial revolution. She wants to establish a European Agency to develop rules for how to govern AI behavior. Specifically, Delvaux writes about how increased levels of autonomy in robot entities will make usual manufacturing liability laws insufficient. It will become necessary, the report states, to be able to hold robots and their manufacturers legally responsible for their acts. Continue reading »

Dozens of Sex Attacks Registered in Berlin Despite ‘Tough’ Security Measures:

The enhancement of security measures in Germany on New Year’s Eve didn’t prove sufficient as 23 complaints about sexual assaults have already been filed by women in the police office in Berlin.

Late December, representatives of the German police stated that increased security measures were taken on New Year’s Eve in Berlin and other German cities to ensure people’s safety. About 1,700 police officers should have ensured security during the New Year celebrations in the German capital.

However, it didn’t help much in terms of preventing cases of sexual assaults committed by migrants against women. According to recent information, the suspects have been identified as migrants, Der Tagesspiegel reported on Tuesday. Continue reading »

Deportation of 62 Islamists Stalls Over Lack of Identification Papers:

The German government has identified 62 dangerous Islamists that it wants to deport to their native countries but is having issues because many of them lack proper identification.

Many Islamist suspects do not have the correct identification documents lack the proper paperwork for their countries of origin to take them back, Die Welt reports. Continue reading »

German Police Union Chief Warns of Potential No-Go Zones:

German Police Union chief Rainer Wendt has warned of the possibility of “police free areas” in which police and other authorities will be unable to enforce the law.

Mr. Wendt has warned German politicians to get the criminal element in the country under control or risk “police-free zones in Germany”. He said that “2017 must be a year of prosecution”, demanding police be allowed to properly enforce the law and hard measures be taken against those “who do not adhere to the laws”, Die Welt reports.

The Police Union head said no-go areas could end up being ruled under criminal laws, rather than the German rule of law, and said this year “must be a year of law enforcement. And indeed there must be consistent law enforcement for those who believe they do not have to stick to the laws in Germany.”

In order to combat criminal elements, Wendt said the government must make more use of technology to boost police presence and capability. He recommended more CCTV cameras in public areas which could work with pattern and facial recognition software to register potential crimes thus allowing police to stop crimes before they happen or better help them identify suspects.

Wendt acknowledged the success of CCTV in identifying the Bulgarian attacker who kicked a woman down the stairs of a Berlin metro station last month. Continue reading »
