The Path to a Richer Canada Goes Through our Armed Forces

Following on a column I wrote for this space two weeks ago, in which I enunciated a number of criticisms of the federal government’s current performance, many readers have asked me to provide some suggestions of how the business of government might be conducted more effectively. Trying never to repeat the same column, I have avoided recycling past suggestions, but hope to be pardoned if a little of what follows seems to some to be similar to comments I have made before.

It is very late to introduce any new fiscal initiatives in this parliament, scheduled to be dissolved in time for an election in October, 2015. Neither the late Jim Flaherty nor the present Finance Minister, Joe Oliver, have lacked the imagination desirable in that position, but they have been hemmed in by the prime minister’s election glide-path, and possibly by an ideologically rigid approach to the HST. It is not hard to demonstrate that the best method for stimulating an economy is reduction of personal and corporate income tax rates, and that the best way of reducing deficits is to increase some taxes on elective sales and transactions, though not on the necessities of life such as groceries and sub-luxury residential rental payments.

The government entered office committed to reduction of what was then the GST and did so, though it was this tax, as well as the shuffling of spending responsibilities off on the provinces without corresponding revenue-raising sources, that led to 14 consecutive federal budget surpluses under governments of both traditional parties. This policy has had the additional benefit, and Stephen Harper and Jim Flaherty deserve great credit for it, of reducing the share of GDP represented by federal government spending to the lowest point in decades, while ending the former (Liberal) federal penchant to use the treasury and its capacity to borrow to enter provincial fields of responsibility, effect policy changes in them, and generally to incite what was often inflationary economic growth by reckless public sector spending of borrowed money. A return to that system would be retrograde, but an exoneration from income tax of the 10% of current taxpayers with the most modest incomes, and a reduction in rate for the lowest 75% of those who remain, offset in revenue terms by 2% higher taxes on most financial transactions, luxury goods sales, and purchases of goods and services not vitally connected to basic needs of health, food, shelter, education and employment, would increase economic growth while preserving the bi-partisan attachment to deficit-avoidance.

The last train leaving this parliament for anything innovative was in Jim Flaherty’s last budget, where he was constrained from acknowledging that we were practically back in surplus and required to withhold anything interesting for a pre-election budget, and forced to offer what amounted to an unfitting valedictory for such a successful and long-serving Finance minister: the statement that “boring is good,” which is generally inaccurate as well as pedestrian.

The regrettable fact is that Canada’s economic performance is quite inadequate. In the last full year (2013), according to the CIA Factbook, which is generally more reliable than the United Nations, and at least as dependable as the IMF, Canada’s economic growth was in a five-way tie for 152nd position in the world, at 1.6%, in a dead heat with, among others, riot-tossed, quasi-communist Venezuela.

In fairness, the rate is increasing slowly, and most of the European countries are behind Canada, because of the deflationary pressures that have been applied to deal with the debt crises in parts of the Eurozone. And it is an unambiguously good thing that all of the 90 fastest-growing economies would qualify as under-developed countries, except China, Chile, the United States, Singapore and Latvia. The presence of the United States at about 4.3% in 2013 is not anything that should elicit the habitual Canadian unease vis-à-vis that country, as this is the least one would expect from the current administration’s vertiginous 80% increase on the $10-trillion of debt accumulated in the previous 233 years of American independence. Less explicable is that Australia’s per capita income has been about 15% greater than Canada’s for some years.

In cumulative economic real growth (eliminating inflation), over any recent period, Canada has trailed Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Mexico and Turkey. Despite European austerity and the fact that the United Kingdom is neither naturally rich nor an especially strong manufacturer any more, Britain has an advantage of at least one full point in both economic growth and unemployment compared to Canada.

This country should do better. Combining economic facts with the case I tried to make two weeks ago about the desirability of Canada being a more plausible source of firm leadership in the Western Alliance, which has been reduced virtually to cobwebs by the irresolution of most of its traditional members, particularly the United States, the economy could be stimulated, unemployment reduced, and credibility conferred upon the purposeful foreign policy remarks of the prime minister and foreign minister, if we expanded our defence capability. We are down to 15 functioning navy ships and 15,000 people in the army. The Air Force is in somewhat better condition, but could be stretched seriously if the Russians start in earnest at their old game of consistently flying up to, and slightly in, our air space.

The prime minister recently told an inquiring journalist that he did not think increased military expenditure justified, but I don’t think he has thought this through. Air force expansion could be projected in a way that landed Canada a position in military aircraft consortia greatly exceeding what we now get. Shipbuilding, which this government has promised for eight years but not delivered, backs very conveniently into steel and other industries, and all the armed forces are a boon to high technology industries. Expansion of personnel would facilitate adult education and career training, as the United States, in particular, has shown.

This is a rich country and we are all in the West forced to accept the reality of a substantial American retrenchment in the world. That country carried us all on its back for decades, and no one should forget that the defence of Canada was successful in the Cold War because of the American guaranty of Canada’s territory, given originally by FDR at Kingston, Ont. in 1938. While the United States sorts out what it is prepared to continue to do in alliance terms, the Europeans and ourselves are going to have to account for more of the burden. Paul Martin indicated a willingness to do this, but left office before he could do anything about it.

As has been written here and elsewhere, Canada had one or two aircraft carriers from 1943 to 1970, and has had none since. Helicopter and VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) carriers, with amphibious and command capability are available from France and the Netherlands, and probably the United States also. Everything is available, including the prospects of a resulting shot in the arm in terms of economic consequences and national morale, for Canada to grow into the role the prime minister’s righteously strident foreign policy assertions indicate a desire to play.

The same investment would greatly increase the country’s ability to respond to natural disasters around the world. In straight political terms, as an election year approaches, supporters of the armed forces are a much larger and more reputable constituency than the Conservatives’ knuckle-dragging Neanderthals of the jail’em, flog’em, hang’em sub-culture being extravagantly pandered to with infamous crime legislation promising the erection of redundant prisons that will largely be occupied by native people who don’t belong there.

There is little point in Stephen Harper slagging off Justin Trudeau for his vapid reflections on the “root causes” of terrorism if his own reaction to the same acts is perceptive bellicosity unsupported by any ability to participate usefully in an effective Alliance response. (The six aircraft we sent to Poland to encourage Ukraine have been redirected to Balkan countries not under threat, and in such a high-stakes game are only a token and a solo gesture in any case.)

The Canadian electorate is not a vast kindergarten that can be propelled into transports of gratitude by pre-electoral distributions of its own money. It may be too late to do much that is original in this parliament, but a believable disposition to pursue economic growth responsibly and to match military capabilities to bold words in sensible strategic spending over time would be welcome in itself, and would be popular. But no one should imagine that another empty promise of imminent rearmament will be seen as anything but the production of a still-born rabbit from a tattered hat.

Obama and the Coalition of Nations

What the world needs now may be love, but more urgently it needs the end of Islamist jihadism, the greatest danger to Western civilization and values. The arrest on September 18, 2014 in Sydney, Australia of 15 alleged jihadists, local Islamic State supporters, preparing to kidnap at random innocent persons and behead them in a gruesome spectacle in the streets of Sydney, is another reminder of that urgent need.

No wakeup call is required to realize that the same kind of direct threat exists against the homeland of the U.S. It serves no purpose to minimize, as some spokespersons for the Obama Administration have done, the danger to the U.S. and Western countries of terrorist attacks. Similarly shortsighted is the view of Daniel Benjamin, former State Department counterterrorism adviser, that public comments about the ISIS threat have been a “farce.”

It is equally pointless to relax one’s guard on the belief that there is no credible information of an impending attack on the West from IS. The world is now full of Jihadist groups, whether al-Qaeda, the Nusra Front, or the Islamic State, some of whose supporters are trained to carry out terrorist attacks in their Western countries of origin. For policy purposes, it is useful to list some of the groups to which attention should be paid.

The groups exist around the world: Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP); Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghrab (Aqim) in Mali; Boko Haram in Nigeria; Al-Shabab in Somalia; Taliban in Afghanistan; Ansar al-Sharia in Libya; Ansar al-Sharia in Tunisia; Jemaah Islamiah in Indonesia; Abu Sayyaf in the Philippines; Ansar Bayt Al-Maqdis in Egypt.  

Above them all is the Islamic State (IS), (formerly ISIS or ISIL), in Iraq and Syria, a ruling state, a Caliphate, as well as a terrorist organization.

It needs to be repeated that IS, a Caliphate with enormous wealth, large quantities of weapons, and an appetite for power, has ambitions to expand its territorial control in the Middle East. Under its ruthless leader the Caliph and Commander in Chief, formerly known as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who claims to be descended from the Prophet, the IS is first consolidating its rule, then plans to conquer the bordering Muslim states, and then to “battle against the Crusaders” (the West). IS has a governing structure and a functioning bureaucracy with two parts, one for Syria and the other for Iraq, each with 12 Governors, an eight-man Shura Council, the religious monitor, and a number of committees, each responsible for specific services.

Along with the ambition of IS in the Middle East, the Western individuals who have joined the ranks of IS pose a potential danger to their countries of origin, including the U.S. homeland. Thus the need for strong Western response to the threat is urgent. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has reported on his attempts to form a coalition, to enlist allies in the fight, to obtain the support of ten Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia and Qatar, and some promises from others. Saudi Arabia has proposed training facilities and providing equipment for Syrian rebel fighters, though it will not commit troops against fellow Muslims.  

How should the West respond? There still appears to be no clear vision or comprehensive long-term U.S. strategy except the refusal to deploy ground forces. Vice President Joe Biden spoke of going to the “gates of hell” to deal with IS, but didn’t say where that was or who would be leading the charge. President Obama has cautiously vacillated in his decisions and in general is not willing for the American military to be involved in quarrels in foreign countries. The projected U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan indicates the misapprehension of this policy, since the Taliban are likely to become more powerful there. Obama has made clear on many occasions that American combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq.

Above all, Obama is no lone ranger: his policy is alone together. He has increased the number of air raids on IS bases in Iraq, but not yet in Syria. He did send 475 troops to assist the Kurds with training, intelligence, and equipment. If there is to be a meaningful coalition of nations it is imperative that U.S. political and military leaders agree on a serious plan of action.

Troops from European countries, and certainly from the United States, are unlikely to participate in military action on the ground. The NATO countries are unlikely to provide much assistance. Indeed, only four of them (US, UK, Greece, and Estonia) spend at least 2 per cent of their GDP on defense as required. Britain did send four Tornado jets to Cyprus for reconnaissance flights, and also a Rivet Joint intelligence gathering aircraft.

Action by Western countries must continue embracing air strikes over Syria as well as Iraq, training those rebel groups in Iraq and Syria who are prepared to fight IS, monitoring of the borders of Syria, Turkey, and Iraq, controlling ISIS funds, and preventing would-be home grown jihadists from joining IS. An initial problem is that training of the rebel groups has been slow and should be speeded up.

Above all, Western help to the Kurds is crucial. The Syrian Kurds must be strengthened, even though the Kurdish Workers’ Party (PKK) is designated as a terrorist group by the U.S. and Turkey. The Kurds, occupying parts of Syria, Iraq, Iran, and Turkey, the largest ethnic group in the world that is stateless, deserve a regime of their own. Whether or not one accepts this conclusion they should be supplied with heavy weapons, including tanks and helicopters, with which to fight IS.

One country that is reluctant to join any international coalition is Turkey, though it is a NATO country with a large army. Turkey, which has a 560-mile border with Syria, was partly responsible for allowing ISIS to gain strength by allowing weapons, material, and foreign fighters from Europe and elsewhere to enter its country and travel through Syria to join ISIS terrorists.

So far Turkey has been unwilling to act for two stated reasons. The first is that the IS holds hostage 49 Turkish diplomats and their families who were captured in June 2014 when ISIS overran the Turkish Consulate in Mosul. The second is the animosity between Turkey and the Kurdish PKK, the group which has been among those leading the fight against IS.

Turkey has not acted as an ally or even a friend. It has allowed exiled members of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood to reside in its country. It has benefited from the oil smuggling by ISIS, at least $3 million a day, and from banking transactions. It generally minimized the threat of ISIS. It refused to sign the statement of September 11, 2014 issued in Saudi Arabia when regional leaders agreed to help stop foreign jihadists and funds going to the Islamic State. 

Turkey has declared that the U.S. cannot use the air bases on its territory, especially the large one at Incirlik, for airstrikes against IS. It appears that IS has some kind of unofficial office in Istanbul and has been actively recruiting in that city. More than 1000 Turks have joined IS, either for ideological reasons or for money, said to be $150 a day. This is attractive for Turks, of whom 17 per cent live below the poverty line. Turkey has also allowed anti-Assad Islamic extremists to operate within its territory. If Turkey is not forthcoming, a good case can be made for its removal from NATO.

The Obama Administration must persist in the effort, difficult though it is, to assemble a coalition of nations to overcome the most threatening menace in the world today, and to lead from in front.

Downing Street - one week after Rotherham

To Downing Street to take the message to No 10.

Making my way up Whitehall I came upon the UAF rally first where speeches were in full swing. This is Weyman Bennet.

"Comrades - I ask you to be patient. The EDL like a drink; they must have a drink first. They say it will be a march. It will be a stagger. And we will be here sober to meet and oppose them"

Having a beer is what the English do. Or in the case of Nelson's navy, a tot of rum.

The admins were setting up the EDL site outside the Ministry of Defence so I went back to the UAF area. The second speaker was the other Sikh against the EDL. 

There are at least two Sikhs against the EDL - in Walthamstow last year he was a much younger man (either that or the uphill paper round is taking its toll.) You just never see them together.

He said that the EDL (who have great respect for Sikhs) do not speak for most Sikhs, and that he, as a Sikh and as a Trade Unionist is appalled to see the EDL permitted yet again on the streets of London. 

It's called free speech and democracy, and our ancestors fought and died for it. I should not have been appalled at the amount of Trade Union banners in their enclosure. My former union, PCS. The National Union of Journalists. Unite. Unison. Paddington RMT. I am more convinced than ever that the PCS collusion in the Labour Government cull of a whole cadre of Civil Servants of the old school, upright, incorruptible and honest was a small, albeit indirect, part of this almighty cover-up.

I carried on to Trafalgar Square to watch the muster.

And then down Whitehall to the tune of 'We're coming, we're coming, we're coming down the road. 
We're the volunteers of the EDL and we're coming down the road'.

Flyers were handed out, although some of the tourists were a bit bemused; that is the drawback of weekend demonstrations in London. 

Some little boys and girls in black on the other side of the road were shouting 'Nazis! Nazis!' The police kept them in order, and I'm not sure sticking one's tongue out is completely Antifa. 

While the EDL filed into their rally area to wait for the speakers (above) I went to see what the UAF were up to (below)

I was quite intrigued as to what sort of people would opposed a group who were protesting about child abusers and rapists. There were a few more of them than in Rotherham last week. In Rotherham (where a coach took them all out of the town centre to Sheffield) I suspect none were local. With local feeling running as high as it is against the police and the local authority it would be very foolish of an employee of Rotherham council to show her face in tacit support of sex gang groomers. London is more anonymous. But if you do see any of these faces at the front of your child's class, or with a clipboard in the council offices, be aware.

The EDL's first speaker who outlined the background to today's demo.



Having seen an antifa sticker already I had to go take a look when I spotted an Antifa flag flying from the UAF compound.




The chants were not very varied. "When I say Nazi - you say scum. 
Nazi - scum! Nazi - scum! "

"EDL go to hell, take your Nazi friends as well."

And the favourite, but inaccuarate -  "We are black, white, Asian and Jew - there are many more of us than you" 

While the youngsters were up the front alternating these usual chants the grown ups were doing a bit of bonding in the quiet at the back.

And this shows their 'peaceful' non-violent credentials 

No, its not Rick Wakeman; it's the EDL's second speaker, a very knowledgable Northern man who I noticed in Rotherham last week. Among other things he spoke of the despicable Joyce Thacker, Head (until her departure yesterday) of Rotherham Children's Services. In particular he spoke of her time working in another Yorkshire town Keighley, where as fast as the MP, the brave and upright Ann Cryer, was trying to expose the grooming of young girls by Muslim men, Thacker was threatening to sack any employee who dared mention the facts.

More evil wrought by Trades Unions who forgot that they exist to protect their members, where those members have acted honestly; not to protect rapists. 

"Look behind you" he said. "We are standing by the memorial to the Women of World War II. Do you see a burka there? No! Let's have a cheer for the women who fought for our freedom."

Then there was a round of applause for the guest speaker, Paul Weston of Liberty GB.

He said he was honoured to be invited today, and to stand with brave patriots who were not afraid. Compared with the quislings and traitors of the UAF, the Communist Party, the SWP, the Socialist Party and the Labour Party to name but a few. But he saved his main passion and remarks for David Cameron, sitting opposite in his residence at No 10 Downing Street, who he says is a traitor to his country. How dare such a man call patriots 'sick' for speaking up for what they believe in.

Whether Cameron heard him from behind his barracade and security we will never know. I am old enough to remember having my picture taken outside No 10. Not no more, such a world they have made for us.

After closing remarks the rally dispersed in the general direction of Trafalgar Square. But not before another last chorus of 'Coming down the Road' sung towards Downing Street to remind David Cameron that we won't be going away.

Despotism Or Violent Anarchy: Muslim Libya's Two Possible States Of Existence

The latest from  Libya here.

Islam -- the books of Islam, the heroes of Islam, including its supreme hero and object of worship and emulation Muhammad -- are all about violence. Submission to the Ruler is commanded, as long as the Ruler is a Muslim. But if there is no Caliphate, and in the absence of a strong  local Ruler, then Muslims are free to mete out Muslim justice, to those they consider insufficiently submissive to the dictates of Islam. Anarchy and violence, or absoute submission to a despotic regime (Muammar Qaddafy, Saddam Hussein, the Al-Assads, the Al-Saud, the Vilayet-e-Fiqh of the Iranian theocrats) that controls all of the armed forces and security services,  are the two natural states of societies suffused with Islam. Those that over time have managed, through an enlightened leader -- Ataturk, Bourguiba -- to constrain Islam, can for a while prove exceptions to this rule, as long as the forces that support such constraints remain firmly in charge.

Senate Democrats Block Cruz Bill to Revoke U.S. Citizenship For American Traitors Who Join ISIS


A bill introduced by Senator Ted Cruz, which would revoke the U.S. citizenship of Americans who leave the United States to join the barbaric Islamic group.

Senator Cruz introduced the Expatriate Terrorist Act (E.T.A.) of 2014, earlier this month, which would also keep the traitors from returning to the United States. 

On Thursday, Senate Democrats blocked the bill after Cruz asked for unanimous consent. Specifically, Democrat Senator Mazie Hirono from Hawaii, objected to the bill, citing “fundamental constitutional rights.”

"Legislation that grants the government the ability to strip citizenship from Americans is a serious matter, raising significant constitutional issues,” Sen. Hirono said in her support of constitutional rights for terrorist traitors.

“It is unfortunate that Democratic senators chose to object to this to prevent this common-sense change in law, and I would note when it comes to the constitutional concerns, I don’t know if anyone in this Senate has been more vigorous or more consistent in terms of defending the constitutional rights of Americans that I have endeavored to be during my short tenure here,” Cruz said.

“I will yield to no one in passion for defending constitutional liberties … it is current law right now that if you go and join a foreign nation and take up arms against America, that act has long been recognized as constituting a constructive renunciation of United States citizenship,” Cruz proclaimed.

Military Occupation To Continue

Scotland rejects the two state solution. Backed by the nuclear armed British army, navy and air force, the once sovereign state of Scotland is to continue as just another large neighbourhood of the United Kingdom.

Israel has so many great friends amongst the Scottish people (we assume) because the ones who make the most noise don’t seem to like the prospect of an independent homeland for the Jews remaining here.

Lets hope that Yvonne Ridley’s dream of a “Zionist free zone” in Scotland is now sunk too.

And let us not forget that Scotland is the original place of creation of George Galloway (heaven help them). Perhaps they’re glad he no longer lives there.

Nevertheless, overall it would appear the majority of people in Scotland still think that rule by the British Empire is preferable to self determination under people like Alex Salmond who got in a bit of a twist last week seemingly equating Israel and ISIS.

So it seems that independence is not the answer to everything and having one’s own state, even for a people who have a long, distinct history; an absolutely clear and recognisable culture; their own specific ancient foods (not only deep fried, battered, Mars bars); what amounts to a unique and distinct language (I canneee understand Glaswegians I tell yeeee), is not the best thing in the world. Ever.

So farewell then Scottish Indipendence,
for now.

We knew you well,
even if you didn’t know yourself,
well enough to say.

It was No.

Farage Urges West to 'Grow Up' and Work with Putin to Defeat ISIS

Makes sense to me. Breitbart:

Western countries must stop "playing war games" in Ukraine and "poking the Russian bear with a stick" and instead work with Vladimir Putin to defeat the self-proclaimed Islamic State, Nigel Farage has said.

Speaking to the European Parliament, the UKIP leader said that Putin is "on our side" in the battle against Islamist extremism, and accused to EU of helping start the ongoing conflict in Ukraine by "directly encouraging" the uprising that toppled Viktor Yanukovich, which "led in turn to Vladimir Putin reacting".

The Russian President has also been blamed by the West for prolonging the Syria crisis by supporting dictator Bashar al Assad, thus allowing ISIS to grow in power as the rebellion stalled. Putin has repeatedly blocked motions of censure against against the Assad regime in the United Nations.

Mr Farage said, however, the West needs Putin on side if it is to defeat ISIS, an enemy that presents much more of a threat than Russia.

He told the European Parliament: “Perhaps we better recognise that the West faces the biggest threat and crisis to our way of life we have seen for over 70 years.

"The recent beheadings of the British and American hostages graphically illustrates the problem and of course we have our own citizens from our won countries engaged in that struggle too.

"In the war against Islamic extremism, whatever we may think of [Putin] as a human being, he is actually on our side.

"I suggest we grow up, I suggest we recognise the real threat facing all of our countries, communities and societies, we stop playing war games in the Ukraine and we start to prepare a plan like Syria, like Iraq, like Kenya like Nigeria or Syria and help the deal with the real threat that faces us. Let’s not go on provoking Putin whether we like him or not."...

French Responses To Ivan Rioufol On The Grand Islamisation

Mr Rioufol,
Ce problème que vous décrivez merveilleusement bien est malheureusement le tabou extrême dont il ne faut pas parler.. Le nouveau livre de Laurent Obertone; La France Big Brother que je vais tenter de me procurer devrait nous en compter plus sur le sujet. La solution n'existe pas à gauche et elle n'existe ni au centre ni à l'UMP.. Sarkozy ne règlera pas le problème. Il va choisir de ratisser au centre pour s'attirer les sympathies des déçus du PS. A s'ancrer trop à droite, il s'aliènerait ces votes là. En fait il ne compte pas sur les voix des électeurs FN qu'il sait avoir trahis. Il sait qu'il ne les récupèrera pas. Et puis si le système le ramène, ce n'est pas pour qu'il le brise en s'alliant avec le FN.. Ne rêvons pas. Et si il venait à dire le contraire, ou à surfer border line sur les thèmes du FN, nous savons tous qu'il ne fera rien pour traiter les problèmes qu'à encore une fois fort bien listé JEANBARRE dans son dernier post (immigration, syndicats, code du travail, assistance sociale, régimes spéciaux, etc)
La conclusion est simple, pour moi c'est évidemment et ce depuis 25 ans; le vote FN. Nous allons en effet vers un affrontement SARKO/FN point barre. L'eau tiède contre le coup de froid. Et la grande affaire va être de savoir si on veut continuer à perpétuer le système ou enfin donner un coup de pied dans la couscoussière.
Je suis certes interrogatif et perplexe (et je l'ai souvent dit ici) sur les compétences des individus. Car il faut hausser encore le niveau et le nombre des sympathisants et adhérents FN pour donner de l'épaisseur et de la crédibilité au mouvement. Mais il faut que les français soient conscients que le seul moyen de se sortir de la panade dans laquelle le pays est flanqué - et dont ils sont les responsables directs à travers leurs votes - passe désormais par le FN. Pourquoi ? Parce que cela va créer un tel séisme National, Européen et Mondial que tous les projecteurs vont être braqués vers la France. Cela va créer une onde de choc indéfinissable. Des affrontements vont certainement avoir lieu ce qui va avoir comme conséquence salutaire de percer l'abcès, car on ne fera pas l'économie d'un grand nettoyage avec appel à l'armée. Bref, un mal nécessaire.
Du sang, de la sueur et des larmes.
«Afin de détruire un peuple, il faut d’abord détruire ses racines».
disait Alexandre SOLJENITSYNE. Les français sont désormais conscients de la destruction entreprise. Leur destin leur appartient..
Quatre mois avant De Gaulle, Pétain était acclamé à Paris..
La France c'est aussi 1789 (Même si j'en blâme les conséquences..)
Les Français vont t ils encore capables de renverser la table ?

Mr Rioufol, vous énoncez des vérités que peu de gens de votre profession osent révéler, beaucoup de lecteurs doivent vous en remercier secrètement.

J'émets juste une observation quant à ce que vous écrivez ci-dessous =
"Cette idéologie veut en découdre avec la France et ses valeurs, en abusant de la passivité de la communauté musulmane."
La communauté musulmane est complice de tout ce qui se trame car elle acquiesce en silence. Et c'est cela qui est le plus dangereux. Car l'Occident est menacé par plus dangereux qu'un terroriste musulman dont on connait les intentions : les extraeuropéens , musulmans ou non, naturalisés ou non. Combien de fois ai-je constaté directement ou non leur ressentiment anti blanc sous une couche plus ou moins policée. Les plus éduqués n'échappent pas à ces sentiments nauséabonds, il faut juste gratter un peu plus pour atteindre ce qu'ils pensent réellement. Leurs sourires de façade n'en sont que plus effrayants. Quand j'ai fait cette "découverte" j'ai réalisé dans quel m.... nous étions.
Encore une fois, ils ne sont pas tous ainsi faits mais il n'en demeure pas moins qu'il s'agit d'une très grande majorité dont on minimise la capacité à nous faire du mal.
Du reste, ils n'ont pas besoin de l'Islam pour exercer parfois cette capacité.La religion musulmane n'est qu'un prétexte, un moyen de cimenter tous ces racismes à notre égard.
Ceux que Mr rioufol appellent des passifs ne sont que des "complices actifs" en devenir dès qu'une franche occasion leur sera ouverte.
C'est une guerre ethnique anti blanche sourde et latente. Nous sommes une minorité et avons le devoir d'en prendre conscience et de réagir en conséquence.

Et ce n'est qu'un début de ce racisme anti blanc que l'on retrouve partout en Occident (jusqu'en Australie et nouvelle zélande).

Si la France veut vraiment empecher la guerre ethnique sur son territoire,qu elle commence deja par ne pas reprendre les loups solitaires et autres desequilibres partis combattre avec les coupeurs de tetes,ennemis de la civilisation. Ou alors les remettre aux autorites de leur veritable nationalite..

Leur haine de l’Occident rend leur retour indésirable, d’autant que le risque d’attentats est au plus haut. Le refus de vivre ensemble passe aussi par un séparatisme identitaire affiché et par une envolée des actes antisémites, qui ont augmenté de 91 %. Les chrétiens suivront.

Edito très lucide.

C'est ce que nous disons ici depuis longtemps, je crois.


Alain Finkielkraut à encore une fois eu le courage hier dans l'émission "des paroles et des actes" de dire haut et fort que le malaise premier dans notre pays est le problème identitaire avec le communautarisme et la crise de l'intégration de certains, il dénonce aussi le silence frileux et lâche des politiques sur ce sujet. D'ailleurs il lui a été immédiatement répondu sur le plateau que non non non c'était uniquement le chômage qui était source de tous les maux. Les bobos-politiques sont tellement bêtement butés, déconnectés et dans le déni qu'ils préféreront détruire notre civilisation que prendre le problème identitaire et de l'immigration musulmane à bras-le-corps.
A 1h55 mn :

la France et ses valeurs

l./././. e./././. f./././. sous la guillotine.

Quelles valeurs ???????????????????? quand la voix peuple ne vaut absolument rien du tout sous le regime dictatoriale des Seigneurs de Matignon.

des actes antisémites, qui ont augmenté de 91 %. Les chrétiens suivront...nous sommes deja impotent and nos voix sont completement la police est contre nous si nous voulons defendre notre pays, notre culture et notre heritage....essayer de comprendre ce qui se passe ?

Ils ont deja leurs piscines, ils occupent nos hopitaux, ils sont les maitres de nos rues et personne parmi nos soi-disant serviteurs n'osent les contrarier mais savent comment nous rendre impuissant en faisant des lois contre notre propre liberte surtout celle de s'exprimer.

Quelqu'un peut me definir notre systeme de gouvernance maintenant?

"J’ai l’impression de me trouver dans un pays en conflit, de vivre une scène de guerre en Irak"

Trés bonne analyse, M.Rioufol. Avec toutefois une petite réserve sur la "passivité" des musulmans en France.
C'est bien plutôt un acquiescement silencieux à l'avancée islamiste. Tous n'ont pas l'envie d'aller faire le jihad en Syrie et en Irak, mais aucun ne désire entraver le plan "divin" de conquête du monde par l'islam. Ils croisent les doigts et font profil bas.
En cas d'affrontements sanglants dans notre pays, il ne faudra pas compter sur eux pour nous aider à sauver la démocratie et la France.

A Truthful Description About Islamic Intentions Temporarily Stops The Naming Of A Roman Street After Oriana Fallaci

Roma litiga per “via Oriana Fallaci”: speriamo sia solo questione di parole

All’indomani dell’ottavo anniversario della morte della Fallaci, l’idea di intitolare alla grande giornalista fiorentina una via o una piazza nella Capitale fa discutere e spacca la classe politica romana. L’Urbe infatti ha detto “no”, anche se solo momentaneamente, ad una strada intitolata ad Oriana Fallaci.

E come (troppo) spesso accade quando si parla di una grande giornalista come la Fallaci, i toni diventano subito accesi: è successo e sta accadendo anche in Campidoglio dove l’assemblea capitolina ha bocciato una mozione, presentata da un consigliere di NCD e firmata da tutti i gruppi capitolini, che prevedeva l’intitolazione di una via alla giornalista e scrittrice. A votare contro però sono stati sia il PD che SEL che hanno contestato una frase all’interno del testo del documento considerata “inneggiante all’odio religioso”.

fallalci1D’altronde, non sono una novità le posizioni “decise” della reporter nei confronti dell’Islam. Fatto sta che con 18 voti contrari, 14 favorevoli e 2 astenuti, l’Aula Giulio Cesare ha bocciato la mozione presentata dal consigliere NCD, Marco Pomarici, per l’intitolazione di una strada alla giornalista; e pensare che inizialmente era stata firmata da tutti i gruppi capitolini. La frase incriminata che ha fatto decidere PD e SEL per il “no” è contenuta all’interno della mozione e recita così: “Le intuizioni della giornalista sul pericolo di una deriva islamica si sono puntualmente avverate. Secondo la scrittrice fiorentina – si legge nella mozione – staremmo assistendo ad un pianificato tentativo del mondo musulmano di islamizzazione dell’Occidente, basato su quelle che, a suo parere, rappresentano le strutture portanti del Corano”.

Alla fine a spiegare le posizioni sono gli esponenti della politica capitolina: “Siamo ovviamente d’accordo all’intitolazione di una strada a Oriana Fallaci ma all’interno della mozione presentata c’è un riferimento all’islamizzazione dell’Italia – ha spiegato il capogruppo di SEL, Gianluca Peciola – e il testo aveva un contenuto di odio ideologico verso l’Islam che non ha nulla a che fare con il radicalismo di alcune minoranze”.

Di parere simile il coordinatore della maggioranza di governo, Fabrizio Panecaldo: “Abbiamo bocciato la mozione perché c’erano un paio di incisi nel testo della mozione che avrebbero potuto creare problemi. Ci sono apparsi pesanti. Ma abbiamo già depositato un ordine del giorno, che voteremo a fine della seduta di oggi, per intitolare una strada ad Oriana Fallaci. Vedremo se l’opposizione lo voterà”.

Insomma il nodo si può sciogliere, basta togliere dal documento la frase incriminata: d’altronde può piacere o meno, si può essere d’accordo con lei o no, ma sul valore della professionista e sul suo contributo alla storia di questo paese non ci possono essere dubbi. Tuttavia la Fallaci è destinata a far discutere: succedeva quando era viva, figurarsi ora che si parla di un argomento sensibile come l’Islam. Sul quale le ideologizzazioni si sprecano: “Credo nel tentativo del mondo estremista musulmano di islamizzare l’Occidente e allo stesso tempo il mio paese che si chiama Italia e che io difenderò fino alla morte. Oriana Fallaci è stata profetica – ha commentato Pomarici subito dopo la bocciatura – e tutto quello che ha scritto ora si sta avverando. Il PD, dilaniato ancor più al suo interno si è ritrovato nel votare contro un documento che esprime il pensiero della stragrande maggioranza dei cittadini italiani e romani”.

Come dire, quando si parla della Fallaci non si può prescindere dalle sue posizioni. Unica consolazione il fatto che a essere spaccata non è solo Roma ma anche la città natale della giornalista scomparsa nel 2006, Firenze. Anche il sindaco Dario Nardella è intervenuto sulla questione: “Ogni cosa a suo tempo – ha detto – passo dopo passo: analizzeremo tutte le condizioni, tutti i fattori che possono portare ad una decisione in questo senso prima dei dieci anni dalla morte, previsti dalla procedura ordinaria”.

Eric Zemmour: Daesh (Islamic State) Applies Islam To The Letter


Everyone who has bothered to look into Islam knows this. But no political figure in the West will say it. Instead they earn the contempt of the well-prepared by insisting that the "Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam." If they mean it, their ignorance is unacceptable. If they don't mean it, but are afraid to tell the truth, it's intolerable.

Modi Follows European And American Leaders, Whistles In The Dark About Islam

He wants to make the war of self-defense against Islam into something else: "Humanity" against "Inhumaity," with plenty of Muslims, as he pretends to see it, on the right side. But the handful of Muslim nations -- only the Emirates comes to mind -- willing to fight the Islamic State, and openly declare it, and the great enthusiasm, growing by the minute (though not "exponentially"), for the Islamic State among Muslims, the more the West noisily opposes it, suggest the truth: the Islamic State is not an aberration, but embodies the truest, most uncompromising, understanding of the Qur'an and Hadith. Those Muslim states that oppose it do not do so out of solicitude or horror at the treatment of Christians or Yazidis, including mass killings, destruction of churches, and sex-enslaavement of Yazidi women. That doesn't matter to them. What matters to them is that the Islamic State appeals to those Muslims, living in such places as Saudi Arabia, where the tribe of the despots takes most of the national wealth. The Al Saud are worried only about their own position, the stability of their own country. And that is true of the other despots. The Emirates, while each is ruled by a local despotic family, appears to have somehow made itself civilizationally somewhat more advanced than the other states, and it is possible to believe that at least some of its rulers would like -- if only it could be done -- to have some kind of avoidance of Islamic reality, some kind of understanding that Islam is not really what any reading of the texts -- Qur'an, Hadith, Sira -- and observation of the behavior of Muslims, over 1400 years and across a vast area -- would lead one naturally to conclude.

Modi's remarks, made out of a desire to keep the lid on Muslms in India (where there have been many terrorist attacks, and not only the spectacular ones in Mumbai and on the Parliament building in Delhi, but up and down the land, most entirely unreported in the West), by denying the impossibility of preventing Muslimis, once aroused, to remember that their supreme and only loyalty must be to Islam.

So he's doing what Camron and Obama and others in the West do, but Modi is doing it not out of ignorance but because he's not sure what other tack to take, and he'd like at least to begin by trying out the let's-pretend appeal to Muslims, and to non-Muslims too. Whistlng in the dark, in magical Bharat, here.

Kemi Seba, Enemy Of The West, Imprisoned


He should never have been allowed into France. Having been allowed in, he should never have been given citizenship. Having been given citizenship, the French state, in order to protect itself, ought to find ways to strip him of his citizenship and send him back to Senegal. And if it currently lacks the laws to do so, it should pass those that will enable it to do so. These might include the ending of jus soli (but that is unlikely to have applied in this case), and the requirement that all naturallized citizens be required to take, on oath, a detailed test of their ability to integrate into French society, and that should include a list of questions -- such as whether they believe in the full legal equality of women, and of non-Muslims -- that will be hard for Muslims to answer truthfully. And such an examination ought to include a dozen or so passages from the Qur'an, including 9.5 and 9.29, so that the examiner can elicit from those being examined just how they think their beliefs can possibly enable them to live side by side, peacefully, with those they are enjoined to subdue, to humiliate, to kill.

The texts -- Qur'an, Hadith, Sira -- are there, waiting to be held up for public examination. The Muslims who follow those texts, or claim to, or who may do so more fervently than they do now, are the ones who are to show that the non-Muslims in the advanced world, the world to which those Muslims seek admission (but without the intent to "integrate" in the sense that the host population means; rather, they intend to use whatever tools, such as knowledge of the local language, laws, ways that are most effective in persuading the locals  they are provided, by the Western, host governments, to further their putative  "integration," in order to solidify and expand their position, their beachhead, in what is a slow inexorable campaign of demographic conquest.

Lakemba protest by Muslims who believe Australian terror raids were ‘unjust policing’

From Australia

AN urgent meeting has been called tonight by members of the Muslim community who are furious about today’s anti-terror raids in Sydney. The meeting will be held at Lakemba station in response to what organisers say is the Federal Government’s heavy-handed approach to the raids, which resulted in 15 arrests.

Just over 2000 people have been invited to the event via Facebook with about 150 saying they would attend.

“The Australian government has overnight carried out “the biggest anti-terror raids in Australian history”. Just as in 2005, these raids come on the eve of new laws being tabled in parliament next week! Many families terrorised in the middle of the night, people beaten, and stories of harsh, unjust policing are emerging,” the Facebook post said.

“The Muslim community is squarely the target of these raids and laws, the climate of hysteria only increases as the government fabricates reasons for these draconian laws.” The anonymous post said the community needed to “raise your voice as one” if they were angry about what occurred.“Spread the word, invite Muslims and non-Muslims and send a strong message against this government aggression.”

Other extremist supporters have also taken to social media to launch attacks on the Abbott Government and police after today’s raids, the Daily Telegraph reported.

At a press conference this morning NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione said he appreciated the support of the Muslim community.

Australia’s biggest terror bust: Public beheading allegedly planned

From the Australian Times

Australian police say they have foiled a major terror act, following the country’s largest ever counter-terrorism sweep. 15 people have been arrested with one man, Omarjan Azari, charged with serious terrorism offences, apparently including the intent to carry out a public beheading on the streets of Sydney.

It is understood police believe that suspects were planning to behead a random member of the public and drape the victim in the flag of the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL. According to The Sydney Morning Herald, amongst objects confiscated by police in the raids was a sword.

Azari, 22, from Guildford, appeared briefly in court later on Thursday. Commonwealth Prosecutor Michael Allnutt told the court that Azari was part of a plot to commit an act to “shock, horrify and terrify” the Australian community. The plan involved the “random selection of persons to rather gruesomely execute”, 

When asked about the alleged plot to conduct a public beheading, Prime Minister Tony Abbott told reporters: “That’s the intelligence we received. Quite direct exhortations were coming from an Australian who is apparently quite senior in ISIL to networks in Australia to conduct demonstration killings here in this country,” Mr Abbott said. “So this is not just suspicion, this is intent.”

About 800 state and federal police officers in New South Wales and 70 in Queensland conducted raids in Sydney and Brisbane late on Wednesday night and into Thursday. 25 warrants were executed in the sweep, in the Sydney suburbs of Beecroft, Bellavista, Guildford, Merrylands, Northmead, Wentworthville, Marsfield, Westmead, Castle Hill, Revesby, Bass Hill and Regents Park

Australian Federal Police acting assistant commissioner Andrew Colvin said the raids in Brisbane were a “follow-up” to last week’s arrests in the city and not necessarily linked to the Sydney raids, although the possibility was being investigated. “So while the raids in Queensland are not directly related to what’s happened here today in NSW, the investigations continue and we are looking at linkages between the two,” Mr Colvin told reporters.

The AFP today also launched Operation Hammerhead, which includes an additional 220 highly visible police at major events and flashpoint locations, to help counter terrorist threats and discourage public unrest related to extremism.

In France, Smuggling In A Vast Programme Of Support For Non-French

By making them, merely because of their age and the length of time they have been (mainly) in France, French citizens. The great majority are Maghrebins. They have contributed, through their many children, and those children's many children, to the social and economic condition of France today. Now they are apparently to be rewarded for that. And money that might have been available for the French aged in France, not the Muslim Arab aged in France, will not be.

The story here.

A Few More Comments On France, Its Internal Enemies And Their Collaborators


Ce que vous persistez à ne pas vouloir comprendre, c'est que le vivre ensemble et le non-communautarisme, eh bien, "ils" n'en veulent pas ! Ils se fichent comme d'une guigne que ce soit votre opinion.

Selon moi, votre argumentaire teinté de PADAMALGAM a définitivement volé en éclat. Les évènements ci-dessous valent davantage que les tonnes de beaux discours dont nous sommes abreuvés en boucle :

- dans les mois suivant le 11 septembre 2001, on a assisté dans les maternités françaises à une augmentation significative du prénom "Oussama" parmi les nouveaux-nés. Cela se passe de commentaires.

- Encore "mieux", si je puis dire : en 2011? comme vous le savez, ont eu lieu les élections tunisiennes consécutives au fameux "primtemps arabe". les tunisiens de France ont été appelés à voter. Eh bien, le résultat est sans appel : 40% d'entre eux ont voté pour le parti islamiste. Des personnes vivant pour beaucoup depuis longtemps sur notre sol ont donc, sciemment, voté pour un parti qui prône que la seule loi applicable est la charia, et que celle-ci se place au-delà des lois terrestres (donc, la Constitution française, en somme). Cette loi préconise entres autres la lapidation des femmes adultère, l'élimination physique des homosexuels, et autres joyeusetées.
40% Genefou, 40% !

- la petite dernière, datant de quelques jours : le patron de la LICRA a reconnu (les larmes aux yeux), que la très grande majorité des agressions antisémites en France le sont pas de jeune personnes d'origine maghrébines.
Vous imaginez un peu la transgression mentale que cet aveu a pu causer à une personne dont on ne peut en aucun cas suspecter la xénophobie ni le racisme.

Les faits sont là.

Bien à vous.

« La France a aussi ses ennemis intérieurs »

Et c’est bien de ça, et de gens comme vous que je parle, non d’êtres abstrais et virtuels , mais d’hommes et de femmes qui font ce réel, dont les choix politiques, leur militantisme effréné est bien responsable du monde ordinaire qui est la copie conforme de celui que vous projetez en numérique. Vous parviendrez toujours à baratiner quelques âmes faibles sur ce blog, à provoquer une sorte d'empathie victimaire alors même que vous leur crachez à la figure, mais je fais partie de ceux que vous n'atteindrez jamais. POURQUOI. Parce que je vous tiens pour responsable du massacre d'enfants juifs à Toulouse, de la mort d'innombrables innocents pour une cigarette refusée ou même inexistante, un regard de travers, ou pire encore et le plus souvent, parce que ces innocents sont au mauvais endroit au mauvais moment. Je vous tiens responsable de toutes les humiliations de ce pays, le saccage des ressources qui devraient revenir aux plus pauvres et qui sont redistribués à d'autres, les humiliations des nôtres obligés de baisser les yeux dans les quartiers sous leur contrôle, et plus généralement de la destruction de notre pays. Toute cette misère ne vient pas ciel par le seul plaisir d'un dieu sanguinaire, mais bien parce que des gens comme vous l'organisent et lui ouvrent grand les portes tels les troyens devant un cheval de bois. Il vous est trop facile planqué dans vos certitudes morales comme derrière un clavier de déverser votre haine des nôtres, mais face à la réalité que nous connaissons et votre avalanche haineuse envers les français que vous rêvez en réalité de soumettre, je ne vous accorderais jamais l'ombre de l'ombre d'un début de sympathie. Vous ne m'impressionnez pas plus que vos jérémiades circonstanciées. Cela fait trop longtemps que vous sévissez ici-même. Et tant pis pour ceux qui ne comprennent pas. Vous êtes bien pire qu'un Mérah qui lui ne faisait que répondre à l'appel de sa religion. Vous aspirez volontairement à jouir de la présence massive des Mérah. Parce qu'il faudra bien un jour nommer les vraies raisons de la présence de tous les Mérah en France, désigner ceux qui organisent et collaborent avec cette invasion. Il est trop facile de venir verser votre fiel impunément ici depuis des années avec votre dialectique tordue. Dernière en date sur l'invasion espagnole d'Amérique du sud, amalgamer des faits datant de siècles pour encore une fois mettre sans raisons sur un pied d'égalité les massacres du califat avec une civilisation ancienne. La vérité est que vous êtes aussi tordu qu'eux. Et tant pis pour ceux qui vous font des courbettes. Pour ma part je combats viscéralement des gens comme vous, sans la moindre nuance

Ivan Rioufol: The Impoverishment Of France, And The Shadow Of A Civil War

Bloc-notes : les Français oubliés ont la clé des crises

| Réagir

Une nation paupérisée et éclatée : voilà bien le bilan de quarante ans d’une cogestion droite gauche coupée des réalités. Il manque en moyenne 540 euros à chaque foyer français pour boucler ses fins de mois, et la précarité s’est installée dans les zones périurbaines délaissées par la "politique de la Ville" (comprendre : des banlieues). Exemple extrême : les investissements publics dans le quartier des Hautes-Noues à Villiers-sur-Marne (Val-de-Marne) sont mille fois supérieurs à ceux destinés à un quartier modeste de la périphérie de Verdun (Meuse), habité par des "petits Blancs" (1). 85 % des ménages pauvres vivent en dehors des quartiers "sensibles", sur qui les subventions se déversent. Dans ces derniers se développe, en revanche, un islam radical qui biberonne aux prestations sociales. Cette idéologie veut en découdre avec la France et ses valeurs, en abusant de la passivité de la communauté musulmane.

L’ombre d’une guerre civile s’épaissit. "J’ai l’impression de me trouver dans un pays en conflit, de vivre une scène de guerre en Irak", écrit Maxime Tandonnet (2) décrivant une visite surprise de Nicolas Sarkozy à La Courneuve, en 2010. Dans le commissariat : des centaines d’armes de guerre confisquées, kalachnikovs, lance-roquettes, grenades, etc. Il est vrai que les guérillas contre la police, vue comme une force d’occupation, sont devenues banales dans les ghettos. S’y recrutent les centaines de jeunes djihadistes envoyés en Irak. Leur haine de l’Occident rend leur retour indésirable, d’autant que le risque d’attentats est au plus haut. Le refus de vivre ensemble passe aussi par un séparatisme identitaire affiché et par une envolée des actes antisémites, qui ont augmenté de 91 %. Les chrétiens suivront.

De ces désastres, prédits en vain par les lanceurs d’alerte, les Français doivent s’extraire dare-dare. (La suite ici)

Antisemitic And Anti-Israel Activities At UCLA's Middle East Department


Unsurprising, and not new, but possibly now, with a growing understanding of Islam and, consequently, of the Jihad against Israel, the accumulated evidence will push some Congressmen, sufficiently alarmed, to do something something to end or diminish Title VI support for this swamp at UCLA, a swamp that needs draining.
