THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS HAS, LIKE EVERY OTHER crisis faced by the European Union, exposed the competitor-conflict-mentality that remains always just below the surface of the proclaimed union of the  New Europe. Europe is made up of Germanic-Scandinavian, Mediterannean and Slavic racial national entities, with long histories of independent cultural development. Their main similarity is that they're all “White Indo-European” origin and share the continent named “Europe."

Is the COVID-19 pandemic racial? Yes, it's racial.

IT'S NOT BEING CALLED THE CHINESE VIRUS FOR NOTHING.

Just this morning, I read on the Deutsche Welle coronavirus update web page -

14:18 Chinese police acted "inappropriately" towards Wuhan doctor Li Wenliang, who raised the alarm on the new outbreak, according to investigators from the central government. Li was reprimanded by the authorities in December for posting information about the epidemic on social media, before the government officially acknowledged the issue. The 34-year-old doctor was made to sign a pledge not to commit any more "law-breaking actions."

Li died of the new coronavirus in February, with his death prompting anti-government outrage on social media.

Latest immigration news from the AfD in Germany

This current poster reads "We warned about this: Refugee Crisis 2.0!  EU and Merkel must act immediately!  Support the Greeks!  Consequences for Turkey!"


FROM THE ALTERNATIVE FÜR DEUTSCHLAND WEBPAGE, where public statements by party leaders are regularly presented because the established media in Germany ignores the AfD politicians unless they can be characterized in an anti-democratic fashion. The same situation that sends Donald Trump to Twitter! So I thought I'd bring these few to you that I found on their site today. -Carolyn

On March 5th, Federal Board Member Beatrix von Storch said: "Merkel's refugee deal with the Bosporus blackmailer has failed."
She says Erdogan understands only a politics of strength.

Germany using increasingly repressive measures against political opposition

Germany's Identitarian movement members are young and clean-cut, but the domestic intelligence agency has placed them under increased surveillance as a "verified extreme right movement."


By Carolyn Yeager

IN THE WAKE OF THE GROWING SUCCESS of anti-migration parties and their demand for protection of the national populations in Europe, the establishmentarians that remain in power are cracking down harshly and ramping up their anti-right rhetoric against any and all they see as threats to their control. In Germany we've seen the treatment of Pegida (Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West – founded in 2014), hit with bad press, frivolous lawsuits and intrusive investigation by domestic intelligence agencies. The founder of Pegida has been sidelined by Facebook in ways that make it difficult to find and read his content.

Erika Steinbach on the 70th birthday of the Basic Law

"Birthday child in emergency" - Remarks to the seventieth birthday of the Basic Law

By Erika Steinbach | Chairwoman of the Desiderius Erasmus Foundation e.V.  /Translated via automatic translators by Carolyn Yeager

THE LEGAL FOUNDATION OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF GERMANY,  our Basic Law, has its seventieth birthday.

It is a birthday for a birthday girl for whom it was actually only supposed to have been a temporary solution. The constitutional fathers and mothers initially only wanted to create a temporary legal basis, a legal framework for the reconstruction of a badly shaken German society after a terrible dictatorship and a devastating war with all its upheavals. And not only a legal basis, but also a moral guideline.

Growing German animosity toward asylum-seekers is upsetting establishment

Germany's beautiful and iconic Brandenburg Gate plaza, near to the Reichstag, filled with asylum-seekers last year.


By Carolyn Yeager

A SURVEY CONDUCTED ACROSS GERMANY from Sept. 2018 to Feb. 2019 of 1,890 participants by the left-wing Friedrich-Ebert Foundation in Berlin surprisingly revealed what is being referred to as an  “illiberal attitude” toward asylum-seekers.

A study based on the survey by researchers from Bielefeld University reveals that over half of Germans (54.1%) now hold a negative view of asylum-seekers. We may think it should be higher than that, but it's high enough to shock the authorities. The figure was 44% in 2014 before the refugee crisis began.

President Trump led in rejecting UN Global Migration Pact—Hungary and now Austria follow

Published by carolyn on Thu, 2018-11-01 00:55

Austrian chancellor Sebastian Kurz (left) and vice-chancellor HC Strache announce they are following in the footsteps of leaders from the United States and Hungary by a decision not to sign the UN Migration Compact in December.


By Carolyn Yeager

THE UN MIGRATION COMPACT FOR SAFE, ORDERLY AND REGULAR MIGRATION was approved in July by all 193 UN members except the United States. Later Victor Orban of Hungary said he would not sign the final document, which signing ceremony is to take place in Marrakesh, Morocco in December. Now Sebastian Kurz, chancellor of Austria, has announced that his country has decided not to sign it and will not send a representative to Morocco for the event. Poland is also indicating that it will probably decide the same. [Update: https://www.dw.com/en/merkel-meets-polish-pm-as-he-threatens-withdrawal-from-un-migration-pact/a-46135819]

The compact, which calls mass migration “inevitable, necessary, and desirable,” is made up of 23 goals, some of which definitely infringe upon the sovereignty of first world nations. Austria, in making its Oct. 31 announcement said that 17 of those goals are unacceptable to its government, led by Kurz's conservative Peoples Party in coalition with vice-chancellor Hans-Christian Strache's populist Freedom Party.

AfD wins largest increase from 2013 in Hesse regional election with 13%

UPDATE - Angela Merkel has announced she will not run again for CDU Chairman at the party's annual meeting in December. At last, at last! She says she will remain Chancellor until her term expires in 2021 but, of course, if her government coalition falls apart at any time, there could be a call for new elections. The CDU made a historically poor performance in the last two state elections.

BUT YOU WOULDN'T KNOW IT FROM READING THE GERMAN NEWS OUTLETS, who are all playing down the Alternative for Germany's success since it wasn't the big winner of the night and “only came in 4th” out of six parties that earned the minimum 5%. They fail to mention the AfD's +9 point increase from 2013, which is greater than the 8.5 point increase being so wildly celebrated for the liberal Green Party.

The fact that the Greens won between 19 and 20 per cent of the total vote in this Western Germany state, equaling the result for the declining Social Democratic Party (which lost eleven percent from 2013 – the biggest loser in that regard!) is enough reason for the press to accord them the title of big winner of this election. Well, the Greens probably took their substantial increase directly from the Reds!

Intel chief Maassen turns in report to Seehofer, while far-left wants him sacked

Published by carolyn on Mon, 2018-09-10 14:57

Interior Minister Horst  Seehofer (right) listens as his intel chief Hans-Georg Maassen  speaks. Maassen turned in a report on Friday explaining his position on a controversial video used by Chancellor Merkel and the left parties to denounce "nazi violence" in the city of Chemnitz during the past two weeks.


UPDATE 9-12: Maassen survives grilling in Parliament; given vote  of confidence by Interior Minister Seehofer. Maassen came under fire for not being tough enough against the so-called far-right during the anti-migration protests in the eastern German city of Chemnitz. At the hearing, the head of the domestic intellegence agency is reported to have aimed his criticism at the media, stating that terms like "hounding" should not be used lightly in writing because they can redefine reality. Seehofer praised Maassen for his work and stated that he had argued convincingly and with nuance. Naturally, the left and far-left were not satisfied, saying they had lost confidence in him.

Fake news becoming more irresponsible as elections loom large

This restaurant in Chemnitz, Saxony claims it was attacked by masked antisemites armed with rocks and bottles during the "riots" on August 27.  It was first reported on Sept. 2 by Die Welt.

IN THE U.S., WE HAVE THE WASHINGTON POST'S BOB WOODWARD GOSSIP-BASED book on Donald Trump, along with an anonymous, very similar sounding letter published in the NYTimes, both seeking to destabilize the President and his administration. Would you say that the establishment media and the Democrat Party are one and the same? I would say that.

In Germany, the establishment press is currently playing up the “neo-nazi” angle in the Chemnitz protests [against the street murder of a German by migrants] in exactly the same fashion as the US media played up the protests in Charlottesville, Virgina in August 2017. The important Bavarian state election will take place on October 14 in which everyone fears the AfD will gain even more power. Today, a Deutsche Welle (DW) purported “news” article states that,
