The spread of jihad is irreparably undermining Europe’s post-War reputation as a continent of security and peace.
In addition, free speech seems increasingly regarded by mainstream politicians as dangerous and archaic. Diversity of opinion often appears seen as an obstacle to multiculturalism, the objective of which, ironically, is diversity.
These dual trends are set to come to a head in the Netherlands next year, in elections set to follow the conclusion of the trial of Dutch MP Geert Wilders this November. Wilders is the leader the Netherlands’ Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, or PVV), which currently tops the country’s polls. He faces imprisonment on a charge of hate speech, for saying that the Netherlands could use “fewer Moroccans.”
As Wilders outlined in his opening statement to the court on March 18, the politically-motivated bias against him of one of the judges is a matter of public record. Moreover, despite ample demonstration by Wilders’s defense of the forgery of a group of the criminal complaints that initiated his prosecution, his trial nevertheless continues.
This miscarriage of justice being orchestrated against Wilders is merely one aspect of the many prosecutions being carried out under laws less about prevention and punishment of actual crimes, and more about criminalizing dissent against the demographic transformation of Europe.
The immediate future with the Palestinians will remain Hamas and company launching what they are able whenever they desire from Gaza and Mahmoud Abbas turning on different levels of violence and calm such that Israel is never quite brought to intervene militarily. All of these restraints being applied when Israeli population begins to reach their limits and demand an intervention is dependent on Mahmoud Abbas remaining the governing force. That may be less a given than some presume as eventually one of two events could change that. The first would be the Arabs in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) demanding elections as every poll indicates that in any fair election Abbas would lose and Hamas and company would take over the parliament and replace Abbas as the head of the Palestinian Authority. This would bring into effect many changes other than just a change in leadership for the Arabs; it…

One thing that many Americans find hard to understand is what it is like to live under a dictatorship. Why would they know? After all, America has always been a democracy, since its inception. They have no experience of living in a dictatorship.
If you conduct a poll in America for example, most people will give straight answers reflecting what they really think about an issue. They have no reason to fear the consequences of their opinion and don’t have to look over their shoulder for expressing their views.
Call someone on the telephone out of the blue, in a country like Iran however, and say to them you are conducting an opinion poll, and ask them a question like, ‘Are you in favour of your government’s nuclear program?’, the respondent will either have a heart attack from fear there and then or, if they care for their own well being, as most people do, answer ‘Yes, of course I do!”.
How would you react if you found out a public opinion poll of how Iranians feel towards an issue was conducted by an office led by the Supreme Leader’s personal physician’s, US educated son, and another shady former Iranian student who has studied under his supervision?
Well if you had even only a double digit IQ, you will probably say the fabricated poll was not worth the paper it was written on. And if you saw the poll’s results were something along the lines of the following you’d think the same:
I’m seriously thinking about firing my financial adviser. He’s also my Special Life Coach, so this is a major step for me: but on balance, I think it’s long overdue.
To be clear (as Dave the Brown-nosed Remaindeer would say) I’ve been getting advice from Barack Roomdrama for nearly eight years now, and I think it’s safe to conclude that the bloke either has nothing to say, or says something and then does the opposite. When an adviser advises you and then ignores his own advice, you have to get into, you know, a close examination of the motives in play.
Things came to a head this morning when I got a letter from Barack. One of the things I get concerned about is that his own financial circumstances are not that great: he owes pretty much everyone a Rocky Mountain rangeof money, and five of his subsidiaries are bankrupt…

This is what I hear when I hear rich Democrats say they won’t vote if their fave doesn’t win the nomination:
I don’t know a single person with a disability who lives on social security who doesn’t know that regardless of who the democrat in power is, the quality of our lives improve.
Susan Sarandon will not go hungryif Trump or Cruz wins office.
And while we’re at it, can we talk about the lunacy of electing a Democrat to the office of President, giving him a Republican Congress, then blaming him for
not enacting his agenda.
Basic Civics Lesson:
Congress serves as a check on Presidential Power.
