This week's syndicated column

It may surprise some Americans to learn that almost one-quarter of the people living in Switzerland are foreigners. Even so, just over 50 percent voted last month to cap immigration, which, unchecked, could leave indigenous Swiss a minority in 50 years. Newsweek’s headline over the story was typical: “Switzerland’s Sudden Fear of Immigrants.”

Fear. Immigrants. The German publication Spiegel Online wrote also about “scaremongering.” The enlightened reader’s thought-bubble is now supposed to register the word “racism.” But was it really “fear of immigrants” – read: “racism” – that drove sufficient numbers of Swiss to the polls to check their own demographic extinction as a recognizable culture and nation-state? Or was it a nearly anachronistic instinct to survive as a recognizable culture and nation-state?

I see it as the instinct to survive – and applaud the...

I am currently writing about the events referred to in this video, events which Peter Martino has encapsulated well here. In the meantime, there is no one who can explain them with more eloquence and clarity than Geert Wilders himself.



Behold the statue of The Dockworker in Amsterdam (found here via here). It stands between the Portugese Synagogue and the Jewish Historical Museum on Jonas Daniel Meijerplein Square.

Of course, all eyes are drawn to the black flag of Al Qaeda, that elongated and Arabian-curled swaztika, waving beside it.

Back to the statue for a history lesson that makes the appalling symbolism apparent. Below is a screenshot from A Travel Guide to Jewish Europe. It tells us that nearly three-quarters of a century ago, during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands, Dutch dockworkers...

President Obama welcoming Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki, whose cabinet recently approved sharia-based draft law legalizing child rape ("marriage" to 9-year-olds)

This week's syndicated column

You may have missed it, but March 8 was International Women's Day, a holiday unconnected to a religious rite or person, and with no national or even seasonal significance. It is socialist in origin, and it was Lenin himself who made it an official holiday in the Soviet Union. Not surprisingly, it is now a rite of the United Nations.

In these origins lie the day's basic fallacy: that womanhood is an international -- global -- political state of being; that there is a universal female political condition, which urges, a la Marx, "Women of the world, unite!" Against what? The common foe -- men.

As with Marxism itself, for such a sisterhood to coalesce, even on paper or in elite committees...

Note from Condoleeza Rice to George W. Bush and back again on June 28, 2004.

---

When Westerners and Muslims talk about "freedom," they are talking about two entirely different ideas. Tragically, irresponsibly, the political and academic elite still don't admit or know it. They seem to have learned nothing in more than a decade since 9/11 and the subsequent US invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, and the several years since "Arab Spring."

It's so easy to find the facts it becomes clear they don't want to know them.

The entry on freedom, or hurriyya, in the "Encyclopedia of Islam" describes a state of divine enthrallment that bears no resemblance to any Western understanding of freedom as predicated on the workings of the individual conscience. According to the encyclopedia, Islamic freedom is "the recognition of the essential relationship between God the master and His human slaves...

This week's syndicated column

Reading as widely on Ukraine as possible, I kept wondering why the story wasn’t making sense. Then I realized the buzzwords used to tell the story weren’t adding up.

Here’s what we hear: Democracy in action drove a corrupt leader, whose snipers had fired on protesters in Kiev, to flee Ukraine. Enter Russian forces into Crimea, Ukraine. The “Free World” must now take its stand against the “Russian Bear” for freedom, sovereignty and rule of law, and reject the outcome of an “unconstitutional” referendum in which Russian-majority-Crimea is expected to vote to join Russia. Meanwhile, please inject billions of Western taxpayer dollars and euros into Ukraine.

Mute the rhetoric, though, and it’s hard not to notice that last month, a violent mob and rump parliament ousted the elected Ukrainian president in another “unconstitutional” process better known as a coup....

Something's very wrong when the Land of the Free is the envy of Europe for its "centralized government."

From Speigel Online's recent interview on Ukraine with Polish foreign minister Radek Sikoski:

SPIEGEL: Do you feel that Europe is making a weak impression in this crisis? While EU leaders continued to discuss the issue in Brussels, Washington was already imposing stronger sanctions.

Sikorski: The Americans have done even more -- by relocating F-15 and F-16 jets to Eastern Europe, for example. In contrast to Europe, the US has a centralized government. We should learn from the current crisis that European integration must also continue when it comes to security policy.

Sounds to me as if Sikorski is talking about more power for...

If you thought that in Ukraine we finally had a global crisis sans Islam, think again. My first clue was hearing "Allah Akbars" on a Youtube of some anti-Russia protestors (not in news media). Then, a Ukrainian e-pal from Kiev wrote in, noting, "The Kirimli (Tatars) can ask for help Turks and other Muslim peoples. With Hisb-ut-Tahrir or Wahhabites. It could be a new `hot point.' "

The Tatars of Crimea -- at least the ones who have returned to Crimea in the aftermath of Stalin's mass deportations of nearly 200,000 Tatars in 1944, which would kill nearly half of the population  -- are Muslim and speak a Turkic language.

According to Al Monitor, Turkey's Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutolgu recently met in Kiev with the former speaker of the Tatar National Assembly, Mustafa Abdulcemil Kirimoglu, and declared: “If the term is appropriate, we are in 'mobilization' to defend the rights of our kin in Crimea by doing whatever is necessary.”

In 2005, drawing from his ground-breaking book A Throne in Brussels, Paul Belien published an essay titled "The Dark Roots of the EU." If ever you have wondered why the EU resembles a socialist superstate, this essay reveals that the EU's earliest theorists were socialists and Nazi sympathizers.

Paul writes:



In the 1930s the idea of transplanting Belgicism to the European level, by creating a unified pan-European corporatist welfare state, was further elaborated on by Henri De Man, the leader of the Belgian Socialist Party, and by his deputy Paul-Henri Spaak. De Man called himself a national socialist, but explained that this had nothing to do with nationalism at all. In fact, one of his major books was called “Au delà du Nationalisme” (“Beyond Nationalism”).

De Man knew that Belgium, as an artificial construct, did not really exist as a nation. The Belgian state was no more...

You can't. It's not possible.

Yes, Europe's Islamization is more overtly advanced -- from de jure sharia courts in England to de factos sharia courts in Germany, no-go-zones in all major cities, halal food galore, sharia speech curbs everywhere, mosque proliferation -- but the US is being Islamized, too, maybe more neatly and more quietly, but with no such vocal and passionate political opposition.

Somehow, Europe has spawned courageous politicians such as Switzerland's Oskar Freysinger, whom I had the pleasure of intereviewing at his home in the Alps several years ago, Belgium's Filip de Winter (ditto in Antwerp), The Netherlands' Geert Wilders, whom I have interviewed on several occasions, among others, but America has not. We have no one here who addresses the Islamic threat in clear, forthright terms, not even among those conservative politicians who parade before CPAC, all the while fancying themselves defenders of the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic.

I have been trying to figure out why from the start I have balked at the mainstream narrative framing the struggle in the Ukraine as that of a classic, black-hat, white-hat struggle  -- Tyranny versus Freedom.

First, there are the players. It's just hard for me to see a white hat on the European Union, which in no way stands for preserving the liberty of the citizen. The EU stands for central control -- "soft" tyranny -- "soft" empire, too, and for the end of national sovereignty. A few weeks ago, in fact, I hailed Switzerland's successful, anti-EU referendum to wrest more control of its borders and immigration policy from Brussels, the EU "capital." Could the EU possibly be suporting the sovereignty of Ukraine, or of any other country for that matter? Certainly, that's what we are to believe, but the evidence is not convincing. Worth remembering also is that the EU is helmed by a bevy of erstwhile Communist, Marxist, Maoist and nuclear freezenik ministers who rule by means of an unelected, non-accountable governing structure that Vladimir Bukovsky has likened to that of the old Soviet Politburo. (I discuss the EU in American Betrayal in the context of who really won the Cold War.)

As thousands of conservatives from across the country gather outside Washington, D.C., this week for the annual CPAC conference, they get to see and cheer on their favorite conservative all-stars and presidential hopefuls in person – Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Dr. Ben Carson, Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter and many more. But something else is going on. Amid the hoopla, book signings, meet and greets, speeches, panels and bands, a tense, no-holds-barred fight is under way to try to rid CPAC of a pair of influential men with track records of working with America’s enemies – Islamic organizations the U.S. government has linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and larger world of jihad.

It sounds like the setup to a thriller: Here is the pre-eminent showcase of red-meat conservatism, and at its organizational heart are movers and shakers with links to the world jihadist movement. But these are the facts as laid out in a meticulous, 40-plus-page “Statement of Facts” solemnly signed last month by former CIA Director...

"Intercepted" phone conversations between unelected officials are magically appearing on Youtube -- something George Orwell, I don't believe, gave much imaginative thought to.

First, there was Victoria Nuland's intercepted conversation with the US Amb to Ukraine -- a gem, which left us with much more than the headline  "F--- the EU" to contemplate. Such as: Why do unelected American bureacrats think they can/should pick new governments for foreign countries?

Now, there is the Estonian foreign minister's intercepted phone call with Baroness Catherine Ashton, the unelected "foreign minister" of the EU, which is also known as, pace V Bukovsky, as the "EUSSR." The Estonian minister relays evidence to Ashton conveyed to him by a Ukrainian medical official that some element of the opposition was behind the snipers. Estonia and the Ukrainian health official have since tried to walk back the story -- although Estonia has authenticated the call.
