Wind power is a complete disaster

By Michael J. Trebilcock (full article)

T here is no evidence that industrial wind power is likely to have a significant impact on carbon emissions. The European experience is instructive. Denmark, the world’s most wind-intensive nation, with more than 6,000 turbines generating 19% of its electricity, has yet to close a single fossil-fuel plant. It requires 50% more coal-generated electricity to cover wind power’s unpredictability, and pollution and carbon dioxide emissions have risen (by 36% in 2006 alone).

Flemming Nissen, the head of development at West Danish generating company ELSAM (one of Denmark’s largest energy utilities) tells us that “wind turbines do not reduce carbon dioxide emissions.” The German experience is no different. Der Spiegel reports that “Germany’s CO2 emissions haven’t been reduced by even a single gram,” and additional coal- and gas-fired plants have been constructed to ensure reliable delivery.

THE TRANSNATIONAL WESTERN MULTICULTURAL OLIGARCHS.......

By Fjordman (full article)

The essence of Multiculturalism is simply the unilateral destruction of white, Western nations and their European-derived culture. The Multiculturalists, who like to call people they disagree with "racists" or "Nazis," have perfected the Big Lie propaganda technique employed by the Nazis. The idea that "diversity" and mass immigration by peoples from backward countries is "good for the economy" has to be one of the biggest lies ever told in world history.

Islam’s Golden Age: An Archaeological Nonentity

by John J. O’Neill (full article)

In my recently published Holy Warriors: Islam and the Demise of Classical Civilization, I have argued in detail that Islam, far from being a force for enlightenment in the so-called Dark Age, was actually responsible for the destruction of the literate and urban civilization that we now call Classical; and that, if anything, it was Islam that caused Europe’s descent into backwardness during the Middle Ages. In the same place I have argued in detail that the Islamic Golden Age of the late seventh to the mid-tenth centuries, during which the world of Islam is supposed to have basked in the light of science and learning, is a complete myth, and that no such epoch ever existed. The evidence for this is archaeological.

German Neo-Nazis View Islamists as Allies

Posted By John Rosenthal On October 10, 2008

When protesters in Cologne last month managed, with the blessing of the city government, to prevent the holding of an “Anti-Islamification Congress,” the cancellation of the event was widely hailed in the German and international media as a victory against “right-wing extremists” or, more simply put, “Nazis.” (See here [1], for instance, from the English-language site of the German weekly Der Spiegel.)

A new report from the domestic intelligence service of the German city-state of Hamburg [2] shows, however, that actual neo-Nazi groups in Germany — i.e., groups that themselves embrace this description — in fact likewise opposed the “Anti-Islamification Congress” and are notably hostile to its sponsor, the “citizens’ movement” Pro-Cologne [Pro-Köln].

While the neo-Nazis agitate against what they describe as Germany’s “flooding by foreigners” — or “Überfremdung” — they take precautions against criticizing Islamic influences or Islam as such, since the latter is rather “to be seen as an ally.”

The report of the Hamburg intelligence service — known as the Office for the Protection of the Constitution [Verfassungsschutz] — points in particular to the hostility of the neo-Nazi North German Action Office to Pro-Cologne’s “Anti-Islamification” campaign.

As the report notes, for the North German Action Office [Aktionsbüro Norddeutschland], Islam, “globally considered,” is to be regarded as “an ally against the mammonistic dominance of the American east coast.” Allusions to the American “east coast” are commonplace in Nazi discourse, with the expression meant to connote “Jewish” domination of America and, by extension, the world.

In a statement published on its website [3] (German link) on September 25, five days after the “Anti-Islamification Congress” was banned by Cologne municipal authorities, the North German Action Office writes more fully on the subject as follows:

“Pro-Cologne’s” superficial populism against Islam sends a completely wrong signal, about which only pro-Israeli circles could be happy. Whoever thinks things out more completely than the niche-populists of Pro-Cologne will clearly differentiate between the “Anti-Islamism” that is fostered by the establishment parties at the behest of the USA and the necessary fight against the policy of flooding Germany with foreigners [Überfremdungspolitik], whose authors are likewise the establishment parties. Islam is not the cause of the flood of foreigners, but only a particularly visible symptom. … The problem is the system, not the mosques.

Inasmuch as it is a determined opponent of the western-plutocratic one-world policy, we regard Islam, globally considered, as an ally against the mammonistic dominance of the American east coast. The freedom of nations is not threatened by Islam, but rather by the imperialism of the USA and its vassals from Jerusalem to Berlin.

The statement bears the title “The Sheep in Wolf’s Clothing and Their ‘Anti-Islamification Congress.’” As opposed to Germany’s mainstream media, which suggest that Pro-Cologne is a “wolf in sheep’s clothing” — i.e., an apparently “normal” democratic party that in fact harbors radical intentions — the North German Action Office accuses it of being rather a “sheep in wolf’s clothing.” The “Campaigns” page [4] of the North German Action Office website includes links with titles such as “National Socialists in Lower Saxony,” “Free! Social! National!,” and “May 1 — Day of struggle for national Socialism.”

Hitler and Jihad

By: Andrew G. Bostom   (full article)

Fifty years later ignorance, denial, and delusion have engendered the sorry state of public understanding of this most ominous conversion of hatreds, by all its potential victims, not only Jews. This lack of understanding is little advanced by the current spate of analyses which seek “Nazi roots” of the cataclysmic September 11, 2001 acts of jihad terrorism, and see Nazism as having “introduced” antisemitism to an otherwise “tolerant”, even philosemitic Islamic world beginning in the 1930s. Awkwardly forced, and ahistorical, these analyses realign the Nazi cart in front of the Islamic steed which has driven both jihad and Islamic antisemitism, since the 7th century advent of the Muslim creed, particularly during the last decade of Muhammad’s life.

But even if all vestiges of Nazi militarism and racist antisemitism were to disappear miraculously overnight from the Islamic world, the living legacy of jihad war against non-Muslim infidels, and anti-Jewish hatred and violence rooted in Islam’s sacred texts—Koran, hadith, and sira—would remain intact. The assessment and understanding of the uniquely Muslim institution of jihad, and Islamic antisemitism, begins with an unapologetic exposure of both the injunctions sanctioning jihad war, and the anti-Jewish motifs contained in these foundational texts of Islam. Yet while the West has engaged in self-critical mea culpa, acknowledging its own imperialistic past, shameful role in the slave trade, and antisemitic persecution—taking steps to make amends where possible—the Islamic nations remain in perpetual denial. Until Muslims acknowledge the ugly realities of jihad imperialism, and anti-Jewish persecution in their history, the past will continue to poison the present, and there will be no hope of combating resurgent jihadism, and Islam’s unreformed theological hatred of Jews in modern times, from Morocco to Indonesia, and within Muslim communities living in Western, and other non-Muslim societies across the globe.

The Downfall of the Netherlands- Land of the Naive Fools

Mohammed Rasoel (article)

Foreword by the translator

On December 16, 1992 the Pakistani cabaret artist Zoka F. was ordered to pay a sum of 2000 guilders. The Dutch judge ruled that it had been proven that his book, 'De ondergang van Nederland', published under the pseudonym 'Mohammed Rasoel' was a racist pamphlet written with the sole purpose of inciting hatred. This sentence was followed by a massive public display of political correctness with the book being taken from the shelves in most bookstores throughout the Netherlands, and quickly forgotten about.

[…]

And though the Dutch will fight for their norms and values, the Muslims will not only surprise them once again with their barbaric methods, they will punch straight through their soft and decent defense. When a pack of wolves attacks a herd of sheep the outcome is known beforehand. By now it should be obvious what the Koran means with: "When you meet the unbelievers in jihad, chop off their heads. And when you have brought them low, bind your prisoners rigorously." (Sura 47, 4) And not until that moment will the Dutch at last admit that they, by letting the Muslims into the Netherlands, planted the disasters of strange countries inside their own territory. So now, as never before, they will all vote on a party who aims for a 'definitive solution' of the problem. But since they no longer form the large majority, since the Muslims will vote on their own Muslim party of which the well-camouflaged prototype already exists, this will not accomplish anything.

Afterwards the Muslims will steadily continue to overmaster and dominate the Dutch, who will have no choice but to participate in a game of tug of war where they will steadily lose ground. The Dutch on their own side won't know of a solution nor be capable of carrying out a possible solution. And revenge isn't their style. The Muslims, who will know all this, shall start to make the nation obey their will and more or less gain control. And with the help of supply lines from their own countries or through private immigration centers they will allow for a continuous flow of immigrants who will establish themselves in the Netherlands, and indirectly force the Dutch out. By 2050 there will be no Netherlands left, or at least, nothing worth calling it that. The second stage of the downfall is then completed.

[…] There they stand, the Dutch with their completely justified and without doubt noble striving to dissociate themselves as far away as possible from Hitler's ideology. Completely blind to the fact that their path circles back to the other end at the Jews (with all due respect). The poor devils continue to misunderstand that a choice isn't necessarily between the Nazis or the Jews, predator or prey, oppressor or victim, but that there is an alternative, a third road, which is save yourself and guarantee the continuance of your own culture and your own country. It's simply this one, tiny misunderstanding, that will make the Dutch go down in history as the people who thought so deeply about a nightmare from the past that they ended up becoming that nightmare.

The European Parliament is the only elected institution in the EU, but it has no legislative powers. It is, to quote Pravda, “a mere rubber stamp institution, just like the ‘Supreme Soviet’ in the old USSR.”

From the desk of Paul Belien on Mon, 2009-11-30 06:35 (article)

The Russian newspaper Pravda (Nov. 4) recently wrote that the EU is beginning to look like a “reincarnation of the USSR.” The appointment of Cathy Ashton as the first EU Foreign Minister (full title” “High Commissioner for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy”) would seem to confirm this.

[…] Exactly 20 years after this liberation, at last month’s secret meeting of the governments of the 27 EU member states, Ashton, now a Baroness, was appointed Europe’s Foreign Minister. It came as an insult to the brave men and women who fought and died for Eastern Europe’s liberty in the four decades between 1945 and 1989. Last Wednesday, Nov. 25, Nigel Farage, a British member of the European Parliament (MEP), brought up Ashton’s CND past in a speech in the Parliament. He was shouted down and reprimanded by the Speaker. Farage was told that, if he continued to show “disrespect” for the EU leadership, he would face “disciplinary action.”

[…] Mr. Bukovsky, who spent 12 years in Soviet jails, concentration camps and psychiatric institutions, knows a totalitarian dictatorship when he sees one. Since 1976, when the USSR exchanged Mr. Bukovsky for a Chilean Communist, he has been living in Britain. A few years ago, he joined the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), a party which advocates the withdrawal of Britain from the EU. Bukovsky considers the transformation of the EU, which was once a free-trade organization, into a genuine federal state to be an extremely dangerous development. With the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty, the EU has officially become such a federal state. This United States of Europe, however, resembles the former USSR more than it does the USA, warns Mr. Bukovsky, who has coined the term “EUSSR” for the new EU.

Economics and the Health Care Debate

by J. R. Nyquist (article)

The reduction of the citizen to a helpless, dependent creature is now trumpeted as the chief purpose of government. It is logical, as well, that as the citizens are weakened the government is strengthened, and the power of the state eclipses the freedom of the individual. "As long as the problems of socialism were merely a matter of debates," wrote Mises, "people who lack clear judgment and understanding could fall prey to the illusion that freedom could be preserved under a socialist regime. Such self-deceit can no longer be nurtured since the Soviet experience has shown to everybody what conditions are in a socialist commonwealth."

After the government has taken over the management of health care, the socialists will find yet another industry to target. As each sector of the economy is colonized by government, as each citizen is guaranteed free health care, free bread or lodging, the power of the state will grow as the individual withers. The state, said Nietzsche, "is the coldest of all cold monsters." And it was cold comfort to watch this week's healthcare summit on television.

Grover Norquist, Stealth Jihadist

By Pamela Geller (article)

Grover Norquist’s troubling ties to Islamic supremacists and jihadists have been known for years. He and his Palestinian wife, Samah Alrayyes, who was director of communications for his Islamic Free Market Institute until they married in 2005, are very active in “Muslim outreach.” Just six weeks after 9/11, The New Republic ran an expose explaining how Norquist arranged for George W. Bush to meet with fifteen Islamic supremacists at the White House on September 26, 2001 — to show how Muslims rejected terrorism. Wrote TNR author Franklin Foer:

Unfortunately, many of the leaders present hadn’t unambiguously rejected it. To the president’s left sat Dr. Yahya Basha, president of the American Muslim Council, an organization whose leaders have repeatedly called Hamas “freedom fighters.” Also in attendance was Salam Al-Marayati, executive director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, who on the afternoon of September 11 told a Los Angeles public radio audience that “we should put the State of Israel on the suspect list.” And sitting right next to President Bush was Muzammil Siddiqi, president of the Islamic Society of North America, who last fall told a Washington crowd chanting pro-Hezbollah slogans, “America has to learn if you remain on the side of injustice, the wrath of God will come.”

It was Norquist who ushered these silver-tongued jihadists into the Oval Office after the worst attack ever on American soil. Don’t you think that the likes of Ibn Warraq, Bat Ye’or, and Wafa Sultan should have been advising the President instead of Hamas, Hizballah and the Muslim Brotherhood? But that wasn’t to be. So at that September 26 meeting Bush declared that “the teachings of Islam are teachings of peace and good.” It was a critically important, historic moment. What should have been the most important teaching moment of the long war became a propaganda tool for Islam. A singular historic opportunity was squandered, and the harm that has resulted is incalculable.

Comment: Grover Norquist is a traitor.

Will Obama Destroy Any Hope of U.S. Energy Independence?

By Charles S. Brant, (article)
Energy Correspondent, Casey's Energy Report
February 13th, 2010

The U.S. consumes nearly three times the amount of oil that it produces domestically on a daily basis. How can this statistic get any worse, you might ask?
Imagine in 2010 the Obama administration persuades Congress to pass a budget that results in a reduction of domestic oil production by 10% - 20%, making the supply/demand imbalance even more lopsided. Foreign oil companies will gain a distinct advantage over American domestic operators as an unintended consequence of these proposals.
Sound farfetched? It's closer to reality than you may think… If it comes to pass, it will likely be the biggest structural change in the U.S. domestic oil and gas industry in decades and have far-reaching implications for investors and for the entire country.

Panic at the Fed or Back to Normalcy?

by F. William Engdahl (article)
February 23, 2010

The decision of the US Federal Reserve to raise its key interest rate was definitely not a sign of confidence in the US economic recovery or a signal that Fed policy is slowly returning to normal as claimed. It was rather a signal of panic over the weakness in US Government bond markets, the heart of the dollar financial system.

Reveille for the fearful

Reveille for the fearful from Gates of Vienna

A growing number of books argue that Europe is turning into an Islamic terror empire. The worst inferno is reported to be found in Sweden. Andreas Malm here introduces the literature of Eurabia.
clip_image001The Muslims are here to take over. Soon they will be in the majority. Their migration to Europe was never an escape from misery, but a “deliberately planned act of subversion”: they have come to “establish a Caliphate where Sharia laws will apply.” Within a few generations “converts out of Islam will be executed, thieves will have their arms amputated” and “adulterous women will be stoned to death”. Muslims are not content with anything less than that you “give them all the power and let them oppress you”.
WHAT is this? The latest pamphlet from the Sweden Democrats? No. This is a best-seller from the world’s largest publisher of English literature, Random House. The book While Europe Slept was nominated in 2007 for the prestigious American literature prize, the “National Book Critics’ Circle Award”.
The author, Bruce Bawer, an American liberal, with a strong inclination towards the conservative side, a cultural critic, an essayist at newspapers such as The New York Review of Books and Christian Science Monitor, and the author of acclaimed books about Christian fundamentalism and gay rights.

- - - - - - - - -

Now he wants to tell us the truth about Europe. The worst is the inferno in Sweden. Sweden is Europe’s “ground zero”. In Stockholm, Muslim youths are drifting about “chasing non-Muslims out of swimming halls.” They “are terrorizing schools”, “are attacking firefighters and ambulances.” The most popular t-shirt among them displays the words “2030: then we will take over”.
THE ARCHITECT of this hell is the Swedish political establishment. From Johan Norberg — one of the Swedish debaters who Bruce Bawer indicates as one of his sources of knowledge, along with Dilsa Demirbag-Sten and Mauricio Rojas — he has learned that Sweden, although not a ‘one-party state’, is definitely a “single-idea-state”, where obsequiousness to Islam reigns. Thus the Swedes are suffering now under a growing Muslim population, who are “disproportionately inclined to violence”, which have made the frequency of murders “twice as high in Sweden as in the United States”, and which are most deranged in the town of Malmö: where the “rape rate is five or six times higher than in Copenhagen and child rape has doubled in ten years”.
So it continues.
AT all this, one could smile. You could laugh and put it aside, as a curious postcard from a hallucinating fool. Unfortunately, that is not possible. This conception of the world that Bruce Bawer conveys is about to settle down in the brain of the Western world. One of many examples is precisely the stream of books, in which Bawer’s is included, which in the past two years have been written on a single, very familiar theme: Western civilization, with its enlightened, advanced, liberal values, is threatened by Islam.
The basic text of the genre is a study by the British amateur historian Bat Ye’or, now a celebrated guest on an academic tour from Yale to the Hebrew University. In the book Eurabia from the year 2005, she made a sensational disclosure about contemporary history.
IN 1973, the Arabs suspended their sale of oil to Europe. Thus they obtained a stranglehold on the continent. To reopen the oil taps the Arabs demanded harsh conditions, and the then EC immediately prepared itself to surrender.
With this in view, the EC formed, under the dictates of the Arab League, the body ‘Euro-Arab Dialogue’, or EAD. Never heard of EAD? That’s right: since 1973, EAD has ruled Europe, has thrown its network over companies, universities, and the media, and made it so that “a foreign lobby has infiltrated the parliamentary systems”, and yet the whole time succeeded in remaining “totally unknown to Europeans, even though its occult machinery has carried out Europe’s irreversible transformation “.
EUROPE is no more. European civilization has, after plans by EAD, dissolved itself in favor of a hybrid between Europe and Arabia: you may not know it, but you live in Eurabia.
In Eurabia, the Arabs reign, which group is synonymous with Muslims. In Eurabia, Europe has become “an appendix to the Arab-Muslim world” and the native Europeans have been reduced to dhimmis, the status that Islam throughout history has forced upon conquered peoples. This means that Europeans must humbly put up with Muslim laws and rules. Like all dhimmi peoples, they must “walk to the left side of Muslims, in the gutter, and accept violations and infringements so as not to anger their Muslim masters”.
IN THIS VEIN it continues for more than 400 pages. One might think that Bat Ye’or’s theory should be ‘deported’ to the most soiled booksellers. Instead, her concept has stuck in the Western discourse on Islam. In 2005, Fox News sent a series of reports from Europe, in which Malmö was depicted as a Mogadishu controlled by Muslim warrior-gangs roaming about: the vignette of the series was “Eurabia”. Francis Fukuyama, a prominent intellectual, to say the least, says in the liberal Slate Magazine that “ There is no question that what has come to be called “Eurabia” constitutes a major problem for democracy [in Europe]”.
Prominent British historians like Niall Ferguson have praised Bat Ye’or: “Future historians will one day regard ‘Eurabia’, the term she has coined, as prophetic”, this man writes on the book’s cover.
However, not everybody in the genre is as bushy as she is. One of the most recent contributions, The Last Days of Europe, by the respected historian Walter Laqueur, is a more low-key variation of the same diagnosis: “Europe today is like Rome just before the Fall”.
WITHIN A FEW generations Europe will be a museum, tacked into the streets among all the mosques, the swarthy beards and the burkas, where tourists can view the relics from “the highly developed civilization that once led the world, gave us Shakespeare and Beethoven”. Since Islam is a very violence-prone culture, the Muslim ghetto inhabitants in the middle of the heart of Europe will have established an anti-society, whose constitution is the love of “violence for violence’s own sake” and “the urge to destroy everything around”. Laqueur argues that these Muslims must be called by their real name. They are “barbarians”.
When The Wall Street Journal reads Laqueur’s book it is “one of the most compelling in the long series of volumes by authors on both sides of the Atlantic depicting Europe’s decay”. One work with the opposite temperament is America Alone by the rabid right-radical Mark Steyn, but the thesis is the same: “our world is about to perish, because Muslims are multiplying, and start wars against everybody else”.
Like his peers, Steyn is endlessly obsessed with demographics, which in this discourse has the same role as eugenics in anti-Semitism; “the deepest reason for September 11”, he explains, “is that in the 1970s and ‘80s the Muslims produced children, while Westerners abandoned that habit”.
AND WHAT reception has this bestseller received? Christopher Hitchens, one of the most prominent Templars in the Liberal neo-secularism brotherhood, in the New York magazine City Journal praised Mark Steyn’s new book as “extremely persuasive”, a warning that we must “recognize the extraordinary threat and the possible need for extraordinary responses”. Meanwhile, as Europe was turned into a Eurabia under Muslim terror, the Europeans have thus slept sweetly. But behold: now, finally an awakening is occurring.
In the Eurabia literature it is spelled: Pia Kjærsgaard, Pim Fortuyn, Jean-Marie Le Pen, Filip Dewinter, our own Jimmie Åkesson [leader of Sverigedemokraterna]. Bruce Bawer is shouting with joy as he reads about how the public’s hostility towards Muslims is rising, and a growing number of politicians in Europe “are arguing that Islam cannot be reconciled with European values”. A drowsy Europe is now starting to suspect “the harsh choices: total surrender or mass expulsion”.
