Counter Jihad (UK) | FANTASTIC: Hungary erects another wall to defend its people

Hungary plans to build a second fence along its southern border to keep out “hundreds of thousands” of migrants who could swamp the country if Turkey’s fraught migrant deal with the European Union collapses.

Prime Minister Viktor Orban said the new fence, built alongside an existing one, would be stronger and more permanent and able to hold back a massive influx of people.

Building a more substantial barrier along the frontier with Serbia would be necessary if the agreement between Turkey and Brussels to clamp down on migration into Europe via the Balkans continues to unravel, the right-wing leader said.

Mr Orban threatened to stop migrants “by force” if he had to as he announced plans to deploy an extra 3,000 police officers to the border.

More than a million people crossed Europe last year – many passing through Hungary, which recorded the highest number of refugee arrivals per capita.

Hungary had 1,799 asylum applications per 100,000 of the local population in 2015, compared with 587 in Germany and 60 in the UK.

That flow has since been reduced to no more than a steady trickle but fears are growing that Turkey could be about to scupper the EU deal.

The Hungarian PM said: “Technical planning is under way to erect a massive defence system next to the existing line of defence which was built quickly.

“If it does not work with nice words, we will have to stop them with force, and we will do so.”

Under the existing deal, Turkey has agreed to help stem the tide of illegal migrants into the bloc in exchange for aid and visa-free travel for Turkish people.

However, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has repeatedly said that European leaders are not living up to their side of the pact.

Prime ministers of Central European EU member states – the Visegrad countries – will meet in Warsaw later with German Chancellor Angela Merkel to discuss Brexit and the migrant crisis, among other pressing issues.

Hungary will hold a referendum on October 2 on whether to accept any future EU quota system for resettling migrants.

Fact-Check — Top 20 Lies in Hillary’s ‘Alt-Right’ Speech

by JOEL B. POLLAK

Andrew Breitbart would have been proud: on Thursday, his website became Hillary Clinton’s number one target.

In his book, Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World!, Andrew recalled how he warned the Tea Party what lay ahead for them: “I said that they’d be labeled racists and hate mongers and violent criminals, that they’d be depicted as the dregs of society, people to be excluded from dinner parties because of their made-up closet KKK status. They were about to be targeted.”

Andrew added: “They need to marginalize and demonize those that would stand up to their hardball, toxic, and antidemocratic tactics … But it won’t work. Given a fair hearing, given just the slightest exposure — and the American people will rise to the occasion. They see these tactics for what they are.”

Conservatives will never be “given” a fair hearing. But I made sure I was personally on hand in Reno to hear Hillary Clinton’s lies, wearing my Breitbart shirt.

Here are the 20 worst lies in her speech, in chronological order.

1. [Trump’s rhetoric] is like nothing we’ve heard before from a nominee for President of the United States. On the contrary, Barack Obama has specialized in divisive rhetoric, both as a candidate (“bitter clingers,” “typical white person“) and as president. And, of course, Hillary Clinton often uses racist language. In 2008, shepandered to “hard-working … white Americans”; in 2016, she borrows from Black Lives Matter, talking about “white privilege” and “systemic racism.”

2. He’s taking hate groups mainstream and helping a radical fringe take over one of America’s two major political parties. Donald Trump has nothing to do with hate groups, but a “radical fringe” has been in charge of the Democratic Party for a decade — and she was its first victim, in the 2008 primaries. Since then, the party’s leaders have embraced the Occupy Wall Street protests and the Black Lives Matter movement — which she still supports despite its incitement against police.

3. In just the past week, under the guise of “outreach” to African Americans, Trump has stood up in front of largely white audiences and described black communities in insulting and ignorant terms: “Poverty. Rejection. Horrible education. No housing. No homes. No ownership. Crime at levels nobody has seen… Right now, you walk down the street, you get shot.” Ironically, Clinton said that in front of a “largely white” audience in Reno. But consider what she is saying: if you speak honestly about problems in the black community, you are racist. That is how political correctness has imprisoned blacks for 50 years, ever since (Democrat) Pat Moynihan tried to talk about the crisis in the black family.

4. A man with a long history of racial discrimination. Trump has no history whatsoever of racial discrimination. At the Democratic National Convention last month, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley fled from the camera rather than cite one single example of anything Trump had said about black people, much less done. Clinton cited a handful of lawsuits by the Department of Justice — a department which recently tried suing Louisiana school districts for helping black students.

5. And let’s not forget Trump first gained political prominence leading the charge for the so-called “Birthers.” The “Birther” movement started among Hillary Clinton’s own supporters in 2008, encouraged by a candidate with a deliberate strategy of painting her opponent as not fully American. Her campaign also encouraged suspicions that Obama is a secret Muslim. If Trump is a racist for asking for Obama’s birth certificate, then Hillary Clinton is an even bigger racist than he.

6. In 2015, Trump launched his own campaign for President with another racist lie. He described Mexican immigrants as rapists and criminals. Trump’s statement was over-broad, but he was not describing “immigrants.” He was describing illegal aliens. He did specifically add: “And some, I assume, are good people.” What the Clinton campaign does not want to acknowledge, in its push for open borders and total amnesty, is that some illegal aliens from Mexico do rape and murder.

7. This is someone who retweets white supremacists online. Trump is constantly on Twitter, and retweets many people. If he were interested in retweeting white supremacists, we would see many examples — not one or two inadvertent retweets among thousands. If you want to find extremism on Twitter, visit Hillary Clinton’s own Twitter feed, tweeting and retweeting Black Lives Matter. The day after police officers were murdered in Dallas, she was tweeting about white racism. Appalling.

8. His campaign famously posted an anti-Semitic image – a Star of David imposed over a sea of dollar bills – that first appeared on a white supremacist website. The Trump campaign didn’t realize the image was antisemitic, and did not know its origins. It changed the image after complaints. But look at the overt antisemitism in the Clinton campaign: a plan discussed by party officials to use Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ religion against him, for example, which Clinton never condemned.

9. When asked in a nationally televised interview whether he would disavow the support of David Duke, a former leader of the Ku Klux Klan, Trump wouldn’t do it. Only later, again under mounting pressure, did he backtrack. What Clinton leaves out, of course, is that Trump had already denouncedDuke and the KKK several times — including the day before that CNN interview. She falsely paints his repeated denunciation, in the days after the interview, as backtracking.

10. Trump said thousands of American Muslims in New Jersey cheered the 9/11 attacks. They didn’t“Thousands” did not, but a handful did. Breitbart News didmuch of the legwork uncovering the truth behind what actually happened in New Jersey, and it was clear that a minority of American Muslims celebrated the attack. Clinton can barely bring herself even to acknowledge radical Islamic terror, so it is no surprise she would persist in her denial. But she has to lie in order to do so.

11. Just recently, Trump claimed President Obama founded ISIS. And then he repeated that nonsense over and over. This complaint might be taken seriously were it not a response to Clinton’s lie that Trump is the “recruiting sergeant” for ISIS. Trump’s claim that Obama (and Clinton) “founded” ISIS, by allowing a vacuum in Iraq, is an exaggeration of what happened, but Clinton’s claim that Americans are to blame for terror by criticizing Islam actually does the terrorists’ work for them.

12. It’s another reason why Donald Trump is simply temperamentally unfit to be President of the United States. This is a lie for the simple reason that it is what Democrats say about nearly every Republican presidential nominee, regardless. In 2008, Obama constantly claimed that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) lacked the temperament to be President of the United States.

13. And he’d ban Muslims around the world – 1.5 billion men, women, and children -from entering our country just because of their religion. Trump has since refined his policy to target immigrants and visitors from regions of the world (predominantly Musilm) where terrorism is a problem. But note that the reason for his policy is not because of religion itself, but rather because extremist members of that religion have a horrifyingly frequent habit of terrorism against innocent people.

14. “Hoist It High And Proud: The Confederate Flag Proclaims A Glorious Heritage.” Clinton singled out several Breitbart News headlines (among thousands) to claim that the site is racist. The irony of this particular headline, which comes from a guest op-ed, is that Clinton embraced the Confederate flag for decades — not just as First Lady of Arkansas, whose own state flag commemorates the Confederate flag (by her husband’sdecree), but later on the campaign trail in 2008.

15. Trump – the only Presidential candidate ever to get into a public feud with the Pope. Every Catholic Democratic presidential candidate who supports abortion is opposed to the Pope. In 2007, Pope Benedict XVI reiterated that politicians who support abortion should be denied communion. Pope Francis has softened that rhetoric but the conflict remains.

16. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups, Breitbart embraces “ideas on the extremist fringe of the conservative right.”That is simply a lie, as anyone who reads Breitbart even occasionally would know. And the Southern Poverty Law Center has no credibility left — certainly since a would-be mass shooter used the center’s guide to “hate” groups to target the Family Research Council merely for supporting traditional marriage.

17. That one came shortly after the Charleston massacre, when Democrats and Republicans alike were doing everything they could to heal racial divides. Breitbart tried to enflame them further. On the contrary: as Democrats like Clinton were exploiting the Charleston attack to inflame racial division and push gun control, Breitbart News focused on healing. There are several examples, including Lee Stranahan’smoving account of the makeshift memorial in Charleston.

18. Just yesterday, one of Britain’s most prominent right-wing leaders, Nigel Farage, who stoked anti-immigrant sentiments to win the referendum on leaving the European Union, campaigned with Donald Trump in Mississippi.Here Clinton repeats one of the most frequent — and self-defeating — delusions of the anti-Brexit campaign. (Farage has already responded.) The majority of British voters are not bigots; they simply chose sovereignty over foreign bureaucracy.

19. Trump himself heaps praise on Putin and embrace pro-Russian policies. He talks casually of abandoning our NATO allies, recognizing Russia’s annexation of Crimea, and of giving the Kremlin a free hand in Eastern Europe more generally. How rich this is, coming from a former Secretary of State who championed the Russian “reset” and ensured, after a hefty donation to the Clinton Foundation, that a Russian firm controlled by Putin owned 20% of American uranium.

20. Parents and teachers are already worried about what they’re calling the “Trump Effect.” Bullying and harassment are on the rise in our schools, especially targeting students of color, Muslims, and immigrants. There is little evidence to support this claim. But Americans have been bullied — by the Obama administration, which unleashed the IRS on its political enemies, and accused opponents of the Iran deal of making “common cause” with the regime — attacks that Clinton supports.

London’s Muslim Mayor Who Banned Bikini Ads Blasts France Burkini Ban

burkini

Here is an excellent example of Islamic thinking coupled with Islamic hypocrisy. The Muslim Mayor of London, who banned bikinis from transit advertisements, is in Paris blasting France’s ban of the deeply offensive, misogynist “burkini.”

The London Mayor called bikinis “body shaming,” but burkas and burkinis are really body shaming.

File this under the “hunchback who can’t see his own hunch.”

“London Mayor Sadiq Khan hits out at French burkini ban during Paris visit,” The Telegraph, August 25, 2016:

Sadiq Khan has hit out at France’s “burkini ban” as he travelled to Paris to discuss  integration with his French counterpart.

The Mayor of London’s insisted no one had the right to tell women what they should wear after French police made a woman remove her burkini on a Nice beach on Wednesday. 

The case has fuelled the debate over the Islamic swimsuit ban, which has been implemented by a number of towns around France in the wake of a wave of terrorist attacks.

Mr Khan told the London Evening Standard: “I’m quite firm on this. I don’t think anyone should tell women what they can and can’t wear. Full stop. It’s as simple as that.

“I don’t think it’s right. I’m not saying we’re perfect yet, but one of the joys of London is that we don’t simply tolerate difference, we respect it, we embrace it, and we celebrate it.”

The controversial ban is being met with resistance and will come before France’s highest administrative court today.

The Human Rights League (LDH) is appealing a decision by a lower court in Nice which upheld a ban on the outfit by the town of Villeneuve-Loubet.

Mr Khan dded: “We’ve got to make sure that we don’t inadvertently give the impression of being complacent or arrogant because things aren’t perfect in London. If we want to do integration better, we can’t stand still.”

Speaking in Paris this morning he vowed that ties between London and Paris will become closer than ever despite the UK’s Brexit vote.

He met with his Parisian counterpart Anne Hidalgo for talks on trade, security and measures to tackle air pollution.

Mr Khan insisted that the French community in London would “always be welcome” amid concerns about the status of European Union citizens in the UK following the referendum result.

Mr Khan said: “London and Paris are two of the greatest commercial and cultural cities in the world and we have much to gain from working even closer together post-referendum.

“We have a thriving French community in London, who make a massive contribution to the economy and the vibrancy of our city, and I want to reassure them that they’ll always be welcome.

“I’m here in Paris to make it clear that London is open – open to the world, open to trade, open for new business ventures and collaborations, open to new ideas, new talent and people.

Days after ISIS calls for baseball bat attacks, Muslim migrants attack truckers with bats in Calais

BY ROBERT SPENCER

“A new ISIS terror video has urged followers to use household goods to conduct jihad against the West….they are told to equip themselves with baseball bats…”

“The dashcam footage shows a group of men standing in between the branches and the lorry, armed with baseball bats and large sticks which they wave at the Flemish trucker.”

What a coincidence.

“Calais truckers fear for their lives as migrants armed with BASEBALL BATS attack them,” by Alix Culbertson, Express, August 24, 2016:

A THRONG of violent armed migrants have been filmed holding up a UK-bound lorry as they battled to scramble onboard vehicles in Calais.

Mountains of branches can be seen on the main road into the northern French port, blocking off the essential thoroughfare into Britain.

The dashcam footage shows a group of men standing in between the branches and the lorry, armed with baseball bats and large sticks which they wave at the Flemish trucker.

As the driver puts his foot down on the accelerator, one of the men hits the lorry’s cab.

Driver Marc Lombaerts, told Belgian media: “If I dared put my foot down, they immediately made it clear that they would strike the windshield.”

The terrifying incident emerged on the same day as a 37-year-old Ethiopian migrant was murdered and 15 others seriously injured during a “hugely violent” fight between rival UK-bound gangs from Sudan and Afghanistan.

The latest figures show the lawless Jungle camp in Calais has now increased its numbers to more than 9,000 migrants attempting to get to Britain, despite the demolition of most of the camp by French authorities….

A source close to the murder probe said: “As two gangs from Sudan and Afghanistan competed to get on to the motorway to stop the lorries a fight broke out.

“Weapons including knives and sharpened sticks were used and the situation got very violent. It was a hugely violent fight and there were similar disturbances in other parts of the road system.”…

“‘Use baseball bats, power drills and screwdrivers’: New ISIS propaganda video urges lone wolves to wield household objects to jihad against the West,” by Darren Boyle, MailOnline, August 22, 2016:

A new ISIS terror video has urged followers to use household goods to conduct jihad against the West.

In the video, self-radicalised jihadis are urged to follow example of Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel who used a rented truck to launch a devastating attack on Bastille Day celebrations in Nice killing 86 people.

During the film, terrorists are advised they do not require sophisticated weaponry or explosives to launch an attack.

Instead, they are told to equip themselves with baseball bats, power drills, screw drivers and even hypodermic syringes.

According to PJ Media, the new video – which lasts for almost 20 minutes – concentrates on the United States and France….

GERMAN GOVERNMENT PREPARING FOR “CIVIL UNREST”

Citizens panic buy food after warning of national catastrophe

AUGUST 25, 2016

Prominent political parties on both the left and right in Germany agree that the government is preparing for mass “civil unrest” that could arise out of the arrival of large numbers of immigrants or as a result of war.

*
Many Germans expressed alarm after the German government advised them to ensure they had stockpiles of food and water that could last up to 10 days in the event of a national catastrophe, leading to panic buying and empty shelves.

*
That warning formed part of the government’s new ‘Concept for Civil Defense’, further details of which were announced by Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere yesterday.

Both the Left Party and the right-wing Alternative for Germany party (AfD) reacted to the policy paper by asserting that it was part of plans for the militarization of law enforcement to deal with mass civil unrest.

*
“If there are dangers, that threaten our country at that point, it is civil unrest, brought to us by unsatisfied refugees, who have been invited to our country by our government with wrong promises,” AfD spokesman Ronald Glaser told Sputnik.

*
Glaser also drew attention to the panic buying of food that has swept parts of the country this week, remarking, “Germans take it seriously. They talk about it in public, and some stores seem to be sold out at the end of a day, which was unlikely to happen until now.”

*
Striking a similar tone, the Left Party’s Ulla Jelpke said the government was also gearing up for “civil unrest, strikes and protests,” but that they would be caused by, “The inevitable consequences of ongoing aggressive foreign and neoliberal economic policies, which lead to an increasing impoverishment of many people.”

*
Jelpke added that the plan was a sign that Germany was also preparing for a military confrontation with Russia in the near future.

*
As we reported yesterday, the Czech government is also warming its citizens to “prepare for the worst” and stock up on food.

*
Firearms sales and sales on non-lethal weapons are also exploding in Germany, France, Switzerland, Austria, and the Czech Republic.

Muslim intern refuses to remove headscarf, German mayor fires her on 1st day

The mayor of a German town fired a Muslim intern on her first day of work because she refused to take off her headscarf, local media reported.
*

The 48-year-old woman had been hired for a project called ‘Perspectives for Refugees’ in the eastern town of Luckenwalde, Brandeburg, according to local paper Märkische Allgemeine. She was scheduled to work for six weeks.

However, the woman’s assignment with the town hall ended long before the scheduled date. In fact, she was fired on her very first day of work after refusing to remove a headscarf when asked, saying she did not want to do so in the presence of men.

*

Mayor Elisabeth Herzog-von der Heide wasted no time in firing the Palestinian woman, stating that wearing a headscarf violated the religious neutrality of town hall.

“The Islamic headscarf is a means of expressing a religious worldview,” Herzog-von der Heide told German media on Wednesday, as quoted by The Local.

She admitted that the town hall should have asked the woman about her position on removing headscarves prior to hiring her, and vowed that it would do so in the future.

The abrupt sacking was criticized by Sven Petke, a representative in the state parliament from Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party.

“There are no legal grounds for this decision,” Petke said in a statement cited by Deutsche Welle, stressing that the German Constitutional Court had previously ruled that personal beliefs and their connection to certain items of clothing should not be viewed as a problem.

“That’s different from a crucifix on the wall,” he said.

On the other hand, the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party has praised the mayor.

“If the cross is not permitted in the rooms of the town hall, then there should not be special treatment for Muslims,” AfD state parliament representative Thomas Jung said in a statement.

“The mayor deserves respect and not scolding for her uncomfortable decision,” he added.

*

It’s not the first time that Muslim headscarves have been at the center of heated debate in Germany.

In June, a Muslim law trainee won the right to wear a headscarf to work when a court ruled that there was no legal basis for the state of Bavaria to prevent her from doing so.

Last year, Germany’s Constitutional Court lifted a ban on female Muslim teachers wearing headscarves as long as it doesn’t lead to“disruption” at school.

The burqa has also received its fair share of criticism in Germany, with the country’s interior minister advocating a partial burqa ban earlier this month. Chancellor Angela Merkal has also said that a“completely covered” woman has almost “no chance of integrating”herself into German society.

Just days ago, a court in northwest Germany sided with school authorities in a lawsuit brought by a student who had been expelled from classes for wearing a full face veil.

Opinions about the influx of Muslim refugees in Germany are mixed, with many citizens criticizing Merkel for her open-door policy for those fleeing war and persecution.

Over one million asylum seekers arrived in Germany last year, most of whom hail from Syria, where a civil war has claimed the lives of over 250,000 people and displaced 12 million others since 2011, according to UN figures.

The American Immigration System, a la Barack Obama

His treacherous policies have undermined Rule of Law.

BY JAMES SHOTT

A common refrain about immigration is that the U.S. “is a nation of immigrants.” People coming to the colonies built what would become the United States of America, and since then millions have immigrated here.

“Most immigrant groups that had formerly come to America by choice seemed distinct, but in fact had many similarities,” as ushistory.org explains. “Most had come from Northern and Western Europe. Most had some experience with representative democracy. With the exception of the Irish, most were Protestant. Many were literate, and some possessed a fair degree of wealth.”

Most, but not all immigrants intended to become American citizens. Some, however, returned to their native land after earning money to send home. Not all were good people; some were criminals, mentally ill, anarchists and alcoholics.

Furthermore, many Americans were not thrilled about immigration, and ushistory.org tells us, “In 1917, Congress required the passing of a literacy test to gain admission. Finally, in 1924, the door was shut to millions by placing an absolute cap on new immigrants based on ethnicity. That cap was based on the United States population of 1890 and was therefore designed to favor the previous immigrant groups.”

Throughout the decades and the problems and controversy that accompanied immigration, diversity came to the U.S., which had become a nation of primarily peaceful, self-reliant, hard-working people, qualities they generally passed on to the next generation.

However, the concept that America is a nation of immigrants is less and less valid. Today, the USA is a nation not so much of immigrants, but principally a nation of the descendants of people who were immigrants generations ago; a nation of Americans.

Our government has the duty to admit immigrants who want to become good American citizens, as demonstrated in the previously discussed examples of acts affecting immigration. No sensible person would allow people they cannot be virtually certain are good and honorable people into their homes; our government must be every bit as cautious.

Instead, we find that the current immigration system is wholly dysfunctional, and the responsibility goes squarely on the shoulders of Barack Obama and his administration. The idea held by many on the Left — that we are morally obligated to admit any and all who seek entry, legally or otherwise — is not just dumb, it is dangerous. And that concept has no basis in history or in the Constitution.

Nevertheless, that foolish idea has strong support, and it set the stage for what happened in a hearing of the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee this past April, when Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) addressed comments to those testifying, including Immigration and Customs Enforcement director Sarah Soldana.

Chaffetz listed some startling facts:

  • In a three-year period Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has released more than 86,000 criminal aliens into the American public. These are people here illegally, were caught committing a crime, were convicted of that crime, and instead of deportation, were released back out into the United States of America. All told they were convicted of more than 231,000 crimes.
  • In 2015, 196 of these people were convicted of homicide, and ICE released them back into the public, rather than deporting them.
  • One hundred and twenty-four of those who were released between 2010 and 2015 went on to commit homicide.
  • In 2013 ICE released 36,007 criminal aliens who were unlawfully in the United States. As of September 2014, 5,700 of those individuals went on to commit additional crimes.
  • In March of 2015, the director of ICE testified that during fiscal year 2014 ICE released another 30,558 individuals with a combined 79,059 criminal convictions, instead of deporting them. Of those 30,558 criminal aliens 1,895 were charged with another crime following their release, including sex offenses, assault, burglary, robbery and driving under the influence.

“And ICE told us that in 2015 the agency released 19,723 criminal aliens with a combined 64,197 convictions,” Chaffetz said, “including: 934 sex offenses, 804 robberies, 216 kidnappings, and 196 homicide-related convictions. And that’s on your watch.” They were here illegally, committed crimes, were caught, tried and convicted, and then turned loose to prey on the American people again.

Chaffetz then displayed an aerial photo of Notre Dame football stadium filled with game watchers, and said, “You released more people that were convicted of crimes and should have been deported than you can fit into that stadium. You’d still have people waiting outside in line. Those are the criminals that you released instead of deporting.”

Government’s job is to seal the borders from illegal entry, to thoroughly vet people before letting the acceptable ones in, and to prosecute and punish criminals. Put them in jail, or at the very least deport them and keep them out.

Do these colossal government failures rise to the level of criminal offenses? Should they? Or, is such dangerous and irresponsible behavior “merely” gross malfeasance? Is there no penalty for such wrongdoing, whether criminal or not?

Not in the administration of Barack Obama, where apparently the treacherous operation of this immigration system is a matter of celebration for his supporters.
