Meanwhile, Rioting Breaks Out In Sweden

It would appear the mainstream media (along with several celebrities and Swedish politicians) is going to be apologizing to President Trump once again.

Having spent the entire new cycle trying to ignore the immigrant crisis facing Sweden, and pin the ignorant tail on Trump, both Dagbladet and Expressen reports riots breaking out in the highly immigrant concentrated Stockholdm borough of Rinkeby, Sweden with police firing warning shots as 100s of young people throw stones and burn cars.

During the evening hundreds of young people gathered in the center of Rinkeby, well known for its high concentration of immigrants and people with immigrant ancestry.

High Concentrations of Aluminum in European Vaccines

Dear Populists

Dear populists:

There’s a very real chance you may win the popular vote in the Netherlands, France and Germany – and soon other European countries will follow. Here are some lessons to be learned from Donald Trump’s victory in the U.S.:

Winning an election is only the beginning of a long and bitter struggle. You will be met with counterforces that will stop at NOTHING to sabotage and destroy your political movement:

Rioters set cars on fire, loot shops in Stockholm suburb

Police in Sweden were forced to fire warning shots after a group of unidentified persons ran riots in the Rinkeby district of Stockholm late on Monday, setting cars on fire, throwing stones at police and looting local stores.
A police officer was injured during the clashes, forcing law enforcers to fire several warning shots at the crowd, Swedish public service broadcaster SVT reported, citing a local police spokesperson.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So much for "Safe Sweden".

And here are a couple of follow-on articles:

And to CNN's Don Lemon, who verbally savaged the documentary maker Ami Horowitz for allegedly using false and deceptive statistics to paint an anti-immigrant picture of what is happening in Sweden on his segment; Filmmaker triggers President's Sweden Controversy" Don, why don't you take your next vacation in Malmo soon, and see for yourself just what is going on here?!?

I mean, don't CNN watchers have the right to the truth?!?

Or, is the truth "inconvenient", because it does not support the US's and Swedish narrative about this immigration "going beautifully"?!?

I'm just saying, Don; it appears that your "orders" from your network were to do a brutal takedown of this guy, when the facts and the narrative collide, and on this issue, given the above articles, that seems to have been the "justification" for your approach.

Will Juncker finally quit in row over closer union? EU chief could walk out if his plans to reshape Europe are blocked 

Jean-Claude Juncker may dramatically walk out of his top Brussels post just weeks before Brexit negotiations begin amid an escalating row about his plans to reshape Europe, it emerged yesterday.

The outspoken European Commission president is said to have been left furious after several top leaders tried to block the release of his grand blueprint on the future of the EU.

Farage supports Donald Trump and claims Swedish city could be 'rape capital of the world

The former Ukip leader suggested the property mogul had been unfairly criticised for his speech at a rally in Florida on Saturday and went one step further by suggesting a Swedish city could now be the “rape capital of the world”.

Mr Trump indicated there had been a terrorist incident in Sweden the night before, which led to mockery, including from the former Swedish Prime Minister, as there had not been anything resembling a terror attack on Friday night.

But speaking on his LBC show, Nigel Farage was quick to defend the Republican billionaire and suggested Malmo, a city in the south of the country, may be the world’s rape capital.

WATCH: Stephen Colbert hilariously pays tribute to ‘all the people who did not suffer’ in Sweden

Late Show host Stephen Colbert on Monday ridiculed Donald Trump’s Sweden flub by paying tribute to “all the people who did not suffer” in the European country.

Trump made the comments in Florida on Saturday during a speech in Melbourne, Florida, while discussing his controversial executive order restricting immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries. Nothing specific happened the previous night in Sweden; instead, the president was referring to a discredited segment on Fox News that purported to show a rise in crime rates in the country as a result of its immigration policies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would be very interested; by whom was this "discredited segment on Fox News..." discredited?!? And why?!? Did anyone bother to look at the compare the numbers in Horowitz' documentary to official Swedish documents discredit her, even though countless rape cases now go unreported?!?

Unfortunately, President Trump got his facts turned around, but the problem of rape by migrants continues to be a huge problem for Sweden and Europe, as these articles document. And the Swedish government doesn't want the problem talked about, as it "gets in the way" of tourist and corporate money flowing to Sweden.

So I have a challenge for Mr. Colbert; would he, as a good dad, upon reading, and vetting these articles, send his daughter to Sweden?!? I am almost willing to bet real money that he would not!!

Trump Was Right: Skyrocketing Rape, Violent Crime Rates in Sweden Linked to Open Borders

Of course, it is politically incorrect to speak of this problem honestly, or plainly, in the countries where this is taking place, because it doesn't support the national narrative of the politicians who (for now) are in power in Europe.

That may well start to change, with the next round of European elections, starting with France.

But the first thing which has to happen is that the wars creating this flood of refugees has to stop, and the new leaders of the countries from which these refugees are fleeing, must begin to work for the betterment of the lives of their people.

Oh, and one last thing which was, of course, not in the sightlines of the American Presstitutes, as reported yesterday at zerohedge.com:

Meanwhile, Rioting Breaks Out In Sweden

The story goes on to state:

"It would appear the mainstream media (along with several celebrities and Swedish politicians) is going to be apologizing to President Trump once again.

Having spent the entire new cycle trying to ignore the immigrant crisis facing Sweden, and pin the ignorant tail on Trump, both Dagbladet and Expressen reports riots breaking out in the highly immigrant concentrated Stockholm borough of Rinkeby, Sweden with police firing warning shots as 100s of young people throw stones and burn cars.

During the evening hundreds of young people gathered in the center of Rinkeby, well known for its high concentration of immigrants and people with immigrant ancestry.

The problems Sweden faces integrating large numbers of Muslim immigrants is a subject on which Nordstjernan columnist Ulf Nilson has written many times. His warnings of increasing radicalization among Sweden’s Muslims – warnings he started to broadcast a decade ago – now seem eerily prophetic in light of an Associated Press investigation that found Stockholm to be a breeding ground for jihadists among Swedish Somalis.

According to the AP report, which first ran Jan. 24, an al-Qaida-linked group is busy recruiting anti-government fighters among Somali youths living in Rinkeby. A suburb of Stockholm, Rinkeby has earned the nickname of “Little Mogadishu” because of the number of Somalis living there. Rinkeby is also the center of the recruiting efforts of al-Shabab, a group with ties to al-Qaida."

How Many Euro Crises Will This Make? It’s Getting Hard To Keep Track

Every few years, it seems, one or another mismanaged eurozone country falls into one or another kind of crisis. This leads to speculation about the end of the common currency, which in turn spooks the global financial markets. Then the ECB conjures another trillion euros out of thin air, buys up and/or guarantees all the offending country’s bonds, and calm returns for a while.

SWEDEN ACCEPTED 162K REFUGEES IN 2015. GUESS HOW MANY HAVE JOBS?

this is based on 2015, when 494 out of 162,000 refugees held jobs.
They’re going to be jobless and a chronic strain on the welfare systems of Europe and all other nations who allow hem entry AND they’re going to be resentful of the societies that welcomed them when they realize that they’re only ever going to be working for pennies on the dollar. They will become a permanent underclass, always dependent on the government, and with no motivation to ever accept Western values.

When it comes to the migrant crisis in Europe, the two most important questions that need to be asked is, will these refugees ever return to their homelands, and if not, will they ever be able to function in European societies? So far, the answer to the latter of those two questions is a hard no.

Is Edward Snowden set to be given asylum by Europe? MEPs push EU to take in whistleblower

Mr Snowden is currently living in exile in Russia but European politicians fear that the Mr Trump’s cosy relationship with Vladimir Putin could put him in grave danger.

But their call for him to be granted asylum within the EU will surely enrage the White House administration and comes at a tricky time for relations between Brussels and Washington.

...

Brussels parliamentarians have also previously had their say on the issue, passing a resolution back in 2015 calling on Europe to protect Mr Snowden from Barack Obama’s government, which was seeking his extradition.

It said member states should “drop any criminal charges against Edward Snowden, grant him protection and consequently prevent extradition or rendition by third parties, in recognition of his status as whistleblower and international human rights defender”.

Sweden on the brink? Police force pushed to breaking point by violence amid migrant influx

SWEDEN is on the brink of becoming a lawless state as the police force is losing the battle against unprecedented levels of crime and violence amid a growing migrant crisis.

The Scandinavian country is facing an existential crisis with on average three police officers handing in their resignations a day.

If the alarming trend continues, and police officers continue to resign more than 1,000 officers will have quit the service by New Years.

Since the migrant crisis began last summer, Sweden has been hit by a series of brutal crimes and violent incidents.

In 2015 alone Sweden, with a population of 9.5million, received over 160,000 asylum applications and the country is expected to take as many as 190,000 refugees, or two per cent of the population, by the end of 2016.

Trump’s Watergate All About Drowning Out Russia

Evidently, the big purpose here is to direct Trump to adopt a harder line on Russia and to abandon any notion of developing cordial relations.

The adage about One Man’s Terrorist is Another Man’s Freedom Fighter is aptly paraphrased for the running battle in Washington between President Trump and his intelligence agencies. Only instead of «terrorist» substitute the word «leaker».

Trump has hit back after his National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was forced to resign over disclosed phone contacts he had with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak earlier this year. With barely contained anger, Trump described the leaks as «criminal» and «un-American» and has scorned media outlets for conspiring to destabilize his presidency – only less than one month after taking office.

President Trump: Diplomacy and Democracy in America

Win or lose, the Trump Administration has opened a debate on the possibilities of peace with a nuclear superpower, a re-examination of the huge trade deficit and the necessity to stand-up for democracy against authoritarian threats from the so-called ‘intelligence community’ against an elected President.

By the end of the first month of President Trump’s Administration we are in a better position to evaluate the policies and direction of the new President. An examination of foreign and domestic policy, particularly from a historical and comparative perspective will provide insights about whether America is heading for a catastrophe as the mass media claim or toward greater realism and rationality.

We will proceed by examining whether Trump pursues diplomacy over warfare.

McCain in Munich: The War Party Fights Back

The battle over US foreign policy is taking center stage. Sen. John McCain, the Senate’s leading warmonger, is at the forefront of the fight.

The Munich conference held over the weekend – an annual event that brings the leaders of the Atlantic alliance together to celebrate their hegemonic pretensions – was anything but celebratory this time around.

Despite the assurances of Vice President Pence that America’s commitment to NATO is “unwavering,” the Euro-crats in the audience were miffed that he failed to mention the European Union.

"EUROPE'S LAST DICTATOR" FINALLY FINDS THE LIMITS TO POWER: TAXING THE UNEMPLOYED DURING A RECESSION

Belurusian leader Alexander Lukashenko calls himself "Europe's last dictator": he's a thug who steals elections and sends opposition politicians to forced labor camps, the kind of guy who can get away with arresting a one-armed man for clapping -- but when he imposed a "social parasite tax" on unemployed people in the recession-devastated country, it proved too much.

The mass-marches in the capital of Minsk have now spread to Gomel, the country's second city, with more demonstrations nationwide. 470,000 people are caught by the tax, but fewer than 10% have paid it.

Deadly radioactive particles are found across Europe, and scientists have no idea where they came from

A spike in the levels of dangerous radioactive chemicals has been recorded across Europe.

Air quality stations across the continent detected traces of radioactive Iodine-131 in January - but scientists are yet to work out where the particles came from.

Traces of Iodine-131 were first recorded in Norway and have now been found in Poland, Czech Republic, Germany, France and Spain.

The isotope has a half-life of only eight days, which suggests the particles must have entered the atmosphere after a recent event.

The pattern of movement of the particles suggests they may have originated in Eastern Europe, according to the Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority (NRPA).

Code 291: Swedish Police Cover-Up Thousands of Crimes Involving "Refugees"

Swedish police have covered up thousands of crimes involving migrants over the past four months, all of which have been classified under a secret 291 refugee code designation, it has been revealed.

According to a report in Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet, around 5,000 incidents have been kept secret, including 559 cases of violence, 194 assaults, two terror threats and four rapes.

The article explains that the incidents have been covered-up because of a directive from the National Operational Department that any information pertaining to the behavior of refugees be censored.

FLASHBACK : The Roots of the Refugee Crisis Caused by the West

“The reason so many are fleeing places such as Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, and Iraq is that U.S. and European interventionist foreign policy has left these countries destabilized with no hopes of economic recovery,”explainedformer congressman and three-time presidential contender Ron Paul, a leading voice for a constitutional, non-interventionist U.S. foreign policy. “This mass migration from the Middle East and beyond is a direct result of the neocon foreign policy of regime change, invasion, and pushing ‘democracy’ at the barrel of a gun.”

“Contrary to what one might expect, U.S. military aid doesn’t produce willing, cooperative, or effective security partners. Instead, it incentivizes bad behavior and drives the sources of terrorism: corruption, violence, and poor governance. Unwittingly, this policy is creating its own enemies,” writes Jeremy Ravinsky.

Merkel Says There Is A "Problem" With The Euro, Blames Mario Draghi

Two weeks ago, German finance minister Wolfgang Schauble confirmed Donald Trump's charge that the Euro is far "too low" for Germany, but said he is unable to do anything about it and instead blamed Mario Draghi. “The euro exchange rate is, strictly speaking, too low for the German economy’s competitive position,” he told Tagesspiegel on February 5. “When ECB chief Mario Draghi embarked on the expansive monetary policy, I told him he would drive up Germany’s export surplus?.?.?.?I promised then not to publicly criticise this [policy] course. But then I don’t want to be criticized for the consequences of this policy.”

Then, on Saturday, his boss German Chancellor Angela Merkel echoed her finance minister, and also admitted that the euro is indeed "too low" for Germany, but once again made clear that Berlin had no power to address this "problem" because monetary policy was set by the independent European Central Bank.

Norway Central Banker Warns Of Massive 50% Drop In Wealth Fund Assets To Cover Budget Deficits

Back in August, we noted that, for the first time since it's creation in 1996, the Norwegian government had started raiding its sovereign wealth fund in 2016 to cover government deficits. Then in October the Nordic country revealed plans to massively increase withdrawals by over 25% in 2017, to $15 billion, to cover a budget hole that was expected to be roughly 8% of GDP.

That said, Norway's ultimate GDP potential, and therefore budget deficits, are heavily dependent on oil prices so any further weakening of crude could result in even more withdrawals. Moreover, given the substantial YoY increase, it's important to recall that there are fiscal limits imposed on fund withdrawals equal to 4% of assets, or roughly $36 billion, which could come into play at some point in the future if oil prices remain "lower for longer."

Critics tonight said the fact that such a set of plans could be passed by MEPs demonstrated why the British people voted to leave the EU and that Theresa May needs to press ahead with Brexit.

Meddling Brussels to SPY on UK finances for five years AFTER Brexit under new proposals

BRUSSELS will monitor British finances for five years after Brexit takes place, under new proposals by Eurocrats.

Despite being faced with rising Euroscepticism across the bloc, the European Union (EU) still seems to believe that ‘more Europe’ is the way forward - even for those outside the union.

And all EU-funded projects introduced up until 2019 will be subject to “ex-post evaluations” under plans being considered by European Parliament, sparking fury among Brexit campaigners.

UKIP MEP Bill Etheridge said the proposal showed a "staggering lack of self-awareness" and told the EU to “keep your nose out of our business and get your own house in order”.

Italian banks on brink of running DRY: Rome forced to bend EU rules in emergency bailout

ITALY is plotting another multibillion rescue of its beleaguered banking system, as two struggling lenders come dangerously close to running out of money.

Rome wants to inject around £4.2billion (€5bn) into Veneto Banca and Banca Popolare di Vicenza, by bypassing European rules that ban taxpayers' cash from being used to bailout banks.

The two banks are haemorrhaging cash at an alarming rate, according to the Financial Times, sending Italy into panic.

But the new so-called precautionary recapitalisation plan still needs approval from Brussels to go ahead.

Soros-Backed Group Urges EU to Use ‘Nuclear Option’ on ‘Populist’ Poland

Declaring its conservative government a threat to ‘European values’, Human Rights Watch (HRW) has called for the European Union (EU) to consider activating a mechanism dubbed the ‘nuclear option’ against Poland.

The election of President Donald J. Trump in the U.S. represents an “overtly nationalistic and anti-rights form of populism” which poses a “serious external threat” to the EU, according to the NGO’s “advocacy director for Europe” Philippe Dam.

Warning that Poland poses an internal threat to the bloc, he says the European Commission should trigger Article 7 of the Lisbon treaty — a never before used legal mechanism which would result in the nation losing its voting rights in the European Council.

Swiss broadcaster SRF said voters rejected the tax plans by about 60% to 40%. As Reuters notes, Switzerland has been in the European Union's firing line for years because Swiss cantons have a special tax status for foreign companies that means some pay virtually no tax other than an effective federal tax of 7.8%, an incentive to incorporate and stay on Swiss soil.

Volunteer Anti-Banderite Patrols sweep Poland

Since the Maidan coup d'etat in February 2014, the launch of Kiev's war on Donbass, and the ensuing collapse of the Ukrianian economy, nearly two million Ukrainians have immigrated to Poland.

The massive influx of Ukrainians has been accompanied by a growing number of scandals and provocations involving Ukrainian migrants professing neo-Banderite views.

At the March of Ukrainians in Przemysl, Poland on June 26th, 2016, Banderites confronted counter-protesting Poles with the chant: "Poland has not yet perished yet, but it has to!" (a distortion of the Polish anthem's line "Poland has not perished yet"). In another telling instance, the infamous Ukrainian neo-Banderite leader, Dmitry Yarosh, promised Poles "a second Katyn massacre" while his paramilitary gangs were being armed, trained, and funded by Polish security services on Polish territory.

‘Clear off!’ Ireland finally loses patience with EU over ‘excessive surveillance’

THE EUROPEAN Union has been told to clear off by an Irish MEP who has lost patience with Eurocrat interference.

Brian Hayes has accused the Commission of “excessive surveillance” due to its bi-annual visits by ministers to inspect the Republic of Ireland’s finances.

These six-monthly “missions” ensure the country continues to repay bailout funds - but Mr Hayes believes this is a waste of resources considering Ireland’s now-booming economy.

With European Union visits planned every six months until 2031, the MEP believes the EU should put its efforts towards a more worthwhile cause - such as preparing for Brexit.
