German Coverup Scandal: Ministry Urged Erasing “Rape” From “Monstrous” Cologne Migrant Attack Report:

A key turning point in German public sentiment (and subsequent anger) against the unprecedented refugee wave swarming the nation took place during a NYE celebration in Cologne, when multiple reports suggested that as many as 1,000 men “of Arab or North African origin” participated in “monstrous” coordinated attacks on German women in Cologne. “About 90 women have reported being robbed, threatened or sexually molested at New Year celebrations outside [the city’s] cathedral,” Reuters wrote, adding that the men were “between 18 and 35” and appeared to be “mostly drunk” as well as of foreign origin.

This led to an outpouring of anger across Germany, and even Cologne mayor Henriette Reker chimed in calling the incident “unbelievable and intolerable” while Justice Minister Heiko Maas described the attacks as “a new scale of organized crime.”

It also resulted in a prompt reversal in Angela Merkel’s notoriously liberal immigration policy, the result of which was a dramatic slowdown in refugee flows using the “land corridor” entering central Europe, and leading to the infamous deal with Turkey which promised Erdogan billions if he manages to contain the millions of Syrian refugees within his borders.

Now, according to local press reports, it turns out there was more. Germany’s The Local reports that a high-ranking police officer has alleged that his seniors tried to strike the word rape from an internal police report after the mass sexual assaults in Cologne over New Year. Continue reading »

TTIP in trouble
Protesters wear masks of Barack Obama and Angela Merkel
as they demonstrate against TTIP free trade agreement

“The TTIP Is Doomed” – France Threatens To Reject Obama’s Huge Transatlantic Trade Deal:

Following this weekend’s leak by Greenpeace demonstrating not only that the TTIP is driven entirely by narrow corporate interests, but that Obama is openly willing to reneg on his pro-environment agenda just to pass the Transatlantic Treaty at any cost, the blowback arrived earlier today when France became the first major European nation which threatened to reject the huge free trade deal between the U.S. and the European Union, because according to AP it’s too friendly to U.S. business and probably doomed.Continue reading »

‘Non, merci!’ Protests in Paris as highly unpopular labor reform bill reaches parliament (PHOTOS):

Hundreds of people have taken to the streets of France as the highly unpopular labor reform bill has reached the parliament. The bill has been causing protests all across the country, many of them turning violent, with tear gas deployed and dozens arrested.

Thousands of demonstrators have gathered at Le Square des Invalides near the National Assembly in the French capital. “Labor law, no thank you!’” the protesters shouted.

The bill “destroys social rights and corresponds to the dangerous and unproven principle that we need to ease layoffs today so that employment recovers tomorrow,” the head of the Force Ouvriere union, Jean-Claude Mailly, told AP.

Sparks Fly In German Press As Treatment Of Muslims Hits “Gunpoint”:

Europe’s conservative, anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim tide is rising and spreading at an accelerating pace from nation to nation.

First it was the unprecedented ascent and surge in the polls of France’s National Front, whose Marine Le Pen has become the leading contender in next year’s presidential elections; then there was Austria whose Freedom Party swept the competition in last weekend’s first round of the local presidential elections; then over the weekend we learned that Germany’s brand new (less than three years old) Alternative for Germany (AfD) party has not only adopted an “Anti-Islam manifesto”, stating that “Muslims are no longer welcome in Germany”, but is now Germany’s third strongest party.

To be sure, not everyone was delighted by the AfD’s rapid move higher in the polls.

One such place is Germany’s Frankfurter Allgemeine, which just came out with a cover story to “reveal” how uncharacteristically conservative the AfD is, titled “How the AfD wants to live”, with a picture showing a retro family with dog and 3 kids. Oh, and a gun. Continue reading »

“This is all a nightmare,” said one diplomat charged with making the deal work.

Europe’s Migration Crisis: No End in Sight:

  • According to France’s Defense Minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian, 800,000 migrants are currently in Libyan territory waiting to cross the Mediterranean.
  • The multitude of very costly social problems that Muslim migration into Europe has caused thus far, do not exist in this whitewashed European Union report, where the “research” indicates that migrants are always a boon. Similarly, any mention of the very real security costs necessitated by the Islamization occurring in Europe, and the need for monitoring of potential jihadists, simply goes unmentioned.
  • Several European states have a less optimistic picture of the prospect of another three million migrants arriving on Europe’s borders than either the Pope or the European Commission do.

Pope Francis, on his recent visit to the Greek island of Lesbos, said that Europe must respond to the migrant crisis with solutions that are “worthy of humanity.” He also decried “that dense pall of indifference that clouds hearts and minds.” The Pope then proceeded to demonstrate what he believes is a response “worthy of humanity” by bringing 12 Syrian Muslims with him on his plane to Italy. “It’s a drop of water in the sea. But after this drop, the sea will never be the same,” the Pope mused. Continue reading »

TPP & TTIP Harmful, Economic Studies Find:

Eric Zuesse, originally posted at strategic-culture.org

Presently, three supposed ‘trade’ deals are being proposed by U.S. President Barack Obama, to be signed by major trading nations (except Russia, China, and the other BRICS nations): TPP with Asia, TTIP with Europe, and also (but only for financial and other services) TISA with Europe. The promised benefits in all three cases are said to be economic.

Three independent economic studies have been done, two of Obama’s TTIP treaty with Europe, and one of his TPP treaty with Asia, and all three independent economic analyses find that the publics in each participating country will suffer, and that the owners of international corporations (especially in the U.S.) will benefit, if the proposed ‘trade’ deal goes into effect.

“Get Out Traitor” – German Justice Minister Flees In Armored Mercedes After Angry Protesters Boo Him Offstage:

Heiko Maas, the German Minister of Justice, was unable to finish his Labor Day celebration speech on the 1st of May as he was loudly booed and chased off the stage by the German people. The people repeatedly shouted “traitor”, “leftist rat”, “get out!”, “we are the people” and “Maas must go!”, eventually getting him to cancel his speech and flee to his armored Mercedes escorted by his armed bodyguards.

Maas is considered one of the biggest proponents of expanding censorship laws, demanding persecution, fines and jail-time for everybody posting “hate speech” on social media. Recently his party suffered a devastating loss in polls across the country, losing to the Alternative for Germany (AfD) by a landslide in the last state election of Saxony, where he held his speech.

NATO Deploys 4000 Troops To Russian Border As EUCOM Chief Urges “Return To War-Planning”:

With anti-establishmentarians on the rise in the US & Europe, it appears the neocons and their NATO proxy aren’t wasting any time and are stepping up not just the words, but their deeds, against a so-called “resurgent Russia.” NATO’s European Command (EUCOM) “needs to change,” blasts General Philip Breedlove, urging the military to get back to the business of war planning, a skill lost during the post-Cold War era saying his objective is to send a signal of deterrence to Russia. That signal was heard loud and clear as NATO is deploying an additional four battalions of 4,000 troops to the Russian border in Poland and the three Baltic States, according to a report citing US Deputy Secretary of Defense Robert Work.

Germany’s Third Largest Party Adopts Anti-Islam Manifesto: Says “Muslims Are Not Welcome In Germany”:

One week after Austria was shocked by the news that its right-wing, anti-immigrant Freedom Party, had swept the competition, gathering over 35% of the vote and leaving the other five candidates far behind, Europe’s anti-immigrant juggernaut just added to its momentum when neighboring Germany’s populist AfD party adopted an anti-Islam policy on Sunday in a manifesto that also demands curbs to immigration according to AFP. The biggest surprise however, is that the three year-old party is now also Germany’s third strongest party. Continue reading »

European Union Military Police Rehearses For Civil War In Germany:

Around 600 members (pictured) of various European police and military forces have carried out a European Union (EU) funded training exercise, in preparation for major civil unrest and even war.

The exercise took place in North Rhine-Westphalia on the 15th of April, and is part of the EU’s ongoing Lowlands Gendarmerie program.

So-called ‘Gendarmeries’ are a military force charged with police duties among civilian populations, and all seven European countries that maintain such “robust” units are joined together in the European Gendarmerie Force (Eurogendfor). Continue reading »

Italy’s Bank Bailout Fund Already One Third Empty After First Bank Rescue:

When one month ago, Italy was scrambling to unveil a “last resort” bad bank bailout fund (which eventually received the name Atlante, or Atlas, for the Titan god who was condemned to hold up the sky for eternity, only in this case he is holding up Italy’s €360 billion in bad loans), many wondered why the rush? While the explicit purpose of the fund was to allow Italy to bailout insolvent banks without the involvement of the state which is expressly prohibited by the Eurozone, the scramble appeared erratic almost frentic, and was one of the reasons why Italian bank stocks tumbled in early February.

The question: “Does someone know something?” Continue reading »

Germany Moves To Ban Refugees From Welfare; Politician Calls For “Islam Law” To Limit Influence:

The initial refugee welcome in Germany is rapidly turning to rejection as the nation plan to ban EU migrants from most unemployment benefits for five years after arrival as a senior German politician has called for an “Islam law” that would limit the influence of foreign imams and prohibit the foreign financing of mosques in Germany.

As The FT reports, Germany is planning to ban EU migrants from most unemployment benefits for five years after their arrival in dramatic response to rightwing populist assaults on chancellor Angela Merkel’s liberal immigration policies. Continue reading »

It’s an insult to our intelligence.”


The Euro currency sign is seen in front of the European Central Bank (ECB) headquarters in Frankfurt

Eurozone economy speeds up, reaches size it was back in 2008:

LONDON (AP) — It’s been a long and tortuous journey, but the eurozone economy is finally back to the size it was before the global financial crisis. Official figures released Friday show that the eurozone, which as a bloc is the world’s second-largest economy, accelerated unexpectedly at the start of the year to bring it back to the level it was before the recessions of the past eight years.

Eurostat, the European Union’s statistics agency, said the 19-country currency bloc expanded by a quarterly rate of 0.6 percent in the first three months of the year. The increase was double the previous quarter’s rate and ahead of market expectations for a more modest 0.4 percent. Continue reading »

Italy busts ISIS supporters cell mulling attacks on Vatican & Israeli embassy in Rome (VIDEO):

Italian authorities have arrested four suspects, who have seemingly had an “accentuated willingness” to carry out terrorist attacks in Rome and the Vatican. At least two other members of the Islamic State cell are on the run.

While there was no indication of an imminent attack, the group was allegedly ordered by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) to carry out atrocities in Italy “with particular attention to the city of Rome” as well as the Vatican during the Jubilee Of Mercy year, Milan prosecutor Maurizio Romanelli told reporters.

Two of those detained included Abderrahim Moutaharrik, a kickboxing champion and his wife Salma Bencharki. The couple was arrested in the Lombardy province of Lecco as part of a joint investigation by Italy’s anti-terrorism agency, the General Investigations and Special Operations Division (DIGOS) and ROS, a special operations group that is part of Italy’s carabinieri police force.

Greek Default Looms In July After EU Rejects Greek Emergency Summit:

More Greece “Uncertainty”: Default Looms in July, EU Rejects Greek Emergency Summit

Those who thought the situation in Greece was solved after prime minister Alexis Tsipras suddenly caved in to creditors’ demands need think again.

Greek tax revenues are running well under expectations. A default looms in July unless the creditors give more money to Greece so that Greece can pay back the creditors. As convoluted as that sounds, that’s precisely the way this madness works. Continue reading »

Russia’s Top TV Host Kiselyov Ridicules Merkel and Erdogan on Weekly Show (Video):

And gives a big plug to one of Germany’s leading alternative publications

Lately, Frau Merkel is everyone’s favorite punching bag.   For Russian state media, she is a staple of almost daily abuse.

The woman is roundly hated throughout Russia for her mind-boggling moral and financial support of the government in Kiev which waged, and continues to wage a vicious military campaign against civilians in Eastern Ukraine, with her very vocal, even giddy, encouragement.

German military estimate the casualties on both sides exceed 70,000 troops and civilians, with three times that number wounded, and let’s not forget the 1 million refugees, and the 4-5 million shoved in to wrenching poverty in the war zone.

Did we mention she was a strong favorite for the Nobel Peace Prize?

Well at least TIME magazine, a neocon cesspool, was sufficiently impressed.  They made her “Man” of the year, cause, they think she is a real hero.  Seriously, here is part of their explanation: Continue reading »

From the article:

“We are not very popular when we advocate for Europe.”

How come?

Here are some Jean-Claude Juncker quotes:

“When it becomes serious, you have to lie.”

“We decide on something, leave it lying around and wait and see what happens. If no one kicks up a fuss, because most people don’t understand what has been decided, we continue step by step until there is no turning back.”

“If it’s a Yes, we will say ‘on we go’, and if it’s a No we will say ‘we continue’.”

“There can be no democratic choice against the European treaties.”

“Monetary policy is a serious issue. We should discuss this in secret, in the Eurogroup […] I’m ready to be insulted as being insufficiently democratic, but I want to be serious […] I am for secret, dark debates.”


EU in trouble as Eurosceptic parties gain in strength:

VIENNA (AP) — Even before a vehemently anti-EU party won strong support in Austria, the European Union’s top official acknowledged that the 28-nation bloc was in trouble. “We are facing very tough times,” European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker told parliamentarians this month. “We are not very popular when we advocate for Europe.”

Those comments were reinforced just days later with the victory Sunday of an anti-EU right-wing party in the first round of Austria’s presidential election. Such parties are growing in strength and putting European unity under siege. Instead of moving closer toward the founding nations’ ultimate goal of “an ever-closer union,” the EU faces disconnect and drift as populists blame it for much of the continent’s ills.

Description:

Several refugees were injured after riots broke out at Moria refugee centre on Lesbos island, Tuesday, with refugees setting rubbish cans on fire and throwing stones at police, who in turn responded with tear gas. Reports from inside the centre state that the violence was sparked by authorities striking a minor.

The unrest started in a section of the camp where mostly minors are kept before spreading across the entire space. Columns of black smoke could be seen rising from the camp, prompting a deployment of the fire brigade.

Germany confirms departure of spy agency chief:

The German government confirmed on Wednesday that Gerhard Schindler, the head of the BND foreign intelligence agency, would leave his post two years early but provided no reason for the surprise change.

In a short statement, Chancellor Angela Merkel’s chief of staff Peter Altmaier said Schindler, who has run the BND since 2012 and is not due to retire until 2018, would be replaced on July 1 by Bruno Kahl, an official in the finance ministry responsible for privatizations and government real estate.

“The BND faces major challenges over the coming years, encompassing all aspects of its work,” Altmaier said. Continue reading »

Swedes Revolt Over Refugees Near Schools: Demand “F##king Answers” From Stockholm City Council:

Having documented the growing tensions in Sweden between an immigration-happy government and a nation beset by refugee-crime sprees, it appears ‘the people’ have had enough. Stockholm residents are upset over the city council’s plans to re-locate hundreds of Muslim migrants right next to a school and during a recent meeting, brawls broke out as Swedes exclaimed, “we demand f##king answers, now!” These are not ultra-right-wing nationalists exhorting their racist feelings, these are average Swedes and the revolution is building…

“You just can’t sit there, when we come here looking for answers, and SAY you can’t ANSWER that. That is not OK. There has to be some f**king order in a democracy! But you are NOT answering OUR questions, will want f**king answers! We will stop shouting when you answer out questions!”

As Shoebat notes, unfortunately, these ‘compassionate’ leftists, who have no respect for their own society or even themselves, are not only pushing the European people into a civil war, but possibly a world war. Continue reading »

Latest Shock From Europe’s Refugee Crisis: Austria Right-Wing Party Sweeps First Round Of Presidential Election:

The fallout of popular anger emanating from Europe’s refugee crisis, which may have moderated in recent weeks following Europe’s desperate attempts to bribe Turkey to keep as many refugees in its borders as possible (unleashing the era of unprecedented Turkish leverage over European sovereigns, including Germany and the Netherlands) continued today with a dramatic result from the first round of Austria’s presidential election, where initial results showed that the candidate of the Freedom Party, Austria’s right-wing, anti-immigrant party has swept his competition, gathering over 35% of the vote and leaving the other five candidates far behind.

Pirate Party’s leader detained in Germany for citing poem about Erdogan:

During a rally supporting comedian Jan Boehmermann, Bruno Kramm, the head of the Berlin branch of Germany’s Pirate Party, was arrested for “insulting a representative of a foreign state” by quoting a line from the comic’s satirical poem slamming Erdogan.

German police arrested Kramm while he was conducting a “literary analysis” of the German comedian’s satirical poem in front of the Turkish embassy in Berlin during a protest held under the slogan “No Power for Erdowahn, Freedom Instead of Erdogan” [Keine Macht dem Erdowahn, Freiheit statt Erdogan], the Morgenpost newspaper reported.

The politician cited a couple of lines from the now-infamous piece that landed Boehmermann in hot water, namely, “Kicking Kurds, beating Christians,” which refer to the Turkish authorities’ reported crackdown on minorities. Continue reading »

Turkish prison for refugees? EU to accept only 70,000 migrants from Turkey:

Germany’s Chancellor Merkel is heading to Turkey on Saturday to discuss implementing the migrant deal that was sealed with Ankara in March. Under it the EU will deport illegal migrants to Turkey while providing Ankara with financial aid and promises of a visa-free regime for Turks. Continue reading »
