The Biden administration and its NATO allies have scrambled out of Afghanistan in the most chaotic and irresponsible way: Weapons fell into the hands of the enemy and, in an attempt to not embarrass the now exiled government, the level of security was misrepresented leaving thousands trapped. During the preparation of the withdrawal no time was spent to identify those who could have moved to other places, non-Western countries, and in the rare cases of highly skilled and highly freedom-oriented individuals, to Western countries. Now, thousands of unknown passengers are transported to Western nations and nobody can identify who is deserving and who merely seeks their financial luck.
Was the war a mistake? After the initial revenge for 9/11 it seems to have grown into one. NGOs and many a military officer saw an opportunity to elevate their status and income. They did not honestly report the (lack of) progress to the citizens at home while more and more money sank into the swamp. Afghanistan was not ready to run its own affairs and won’t be anytime soon. It is a place where small advances can be encouraged, but large civilisational jumps can’t be imposed. The same holds true for immigrant populations. It is not enlightened to expect more of people than they can achieve. The individual can be advanced if he is open to it. Masses of people or entire countries will have to take their time.
On July 19th, Ben & Jerry’s have announced that they would stop selling ice cream in the contested territories of Israel. The product is still available everywhere else in the country allowing residents to boycott it. The move is designed to … yes, well, what actually? It is designed to signal a purpose, a virtue, a moral. Ben & Jerry’s don’t just see themselves as morally superior to Israel, but also to Brazil (homophobic), Europe (xenophobic) and, most of all, America (all of it). Yet, even the kaleidoscope of madness that is their (activist) company website would not cause concern if they were just a wayward little business. They are, however, a node in the cobweb of the emerging ‘woke capitalism’ and a front-runner at that.
Florida’s governor Ron DeSantis stands up against the politisation of our major corporations and aims right at Unilever, the British-Dutch parent company. It is one step of many to reverse a larger trend. Fanatic companies everywhere pressure profit-oriented businesses into activism as well. More and more big brands feign an interest in all kind of left-wing politics. The climate is never cool enough, hate is never controlled well, police is never soft enough and prison times are never too short. Unless you bear the consequences and side effects of the agenda points, you can demand ever more and ever harder policies. The brunt will be borne by smaller businesses.
Ben & Jerry’s also donate to United4Rescue, the activist group operating the “refugee rescue ships” Sea-Eye 4 and Sea-Watch 4. They team up with organizations like ‘Science Based Targets Initiative’ that certify carbon emissions which will eventually establish a red-tape web strangling our economy. And this is the real danger. What looks liked an early hippie idea is likely to sweep away our prosperity if we don’t wake up to it.

Germany has got a confusing election system for the lower house of the parliament. Half of the seats are reserved to electoral lists, proportionally allotted on the basis of the percentage the parties won through a second ballot. Additional off-set seats are also drawn from those electoral lists.
Markus Söder has announced that his party will send women only to fill fifty percent of its list mandates. But is that even constitutional? If at least 50% of the parliament is filled on the basis of lists, the composition of those lists become a part of the parliament election process itself. Legally the selection of candidates of the list is termed a ‘character of the action’ of the federal election (Tatbestandsmerkmal).
If everyday citizens are free to pick and shed party memberships in order to take part in how at least half of the seats are filled, how can a party leadership predict that fifty percent of the positions on their electoral list are going to be women?

My channel is devoted to German and EU politics and, yet, the assault on Western land cannot remain undiscussed. The ramifications of Middle Eastern politics for Europe and America are bigger than many people think. I understand and respect America’s desire for “a little me-time” (Ann Coulter phrase). I respect it the more because of Europe’s inaction over the past decades and I respect it because Americans, particularly those who protect us Westerners with their service in the US military, deserve to be involved in as few cases as possible and by a political leadership that they can trust. We don’t have a trustworthy leadership in the West right now. Naturally, I don’t ask for any involvement and, thus, this is not what the video is about.
Yet, the idea that the Middle East has nothing to do with us while Muslims keep pouring into our countries must be contested. Linda Sarsour, Ilhan Omar and others are constantly lecturing us about our alleged “racism”. And, often enough, the money for the woke brainwashing comes from camouflage outfits of the Muslim Brotherhood, the mothership of the Hamas terror group which is launching rockets from the Gaza strip right now.
This is an off-the-cuff talk. So I don’t go through rocket types, terror groups and leadership quotes to link the violence to the funders in Tehran.
The Green party (currently polling at around 18% and culturally far more influential than that already suggests) have written a manifesto in which they demand the inclusion of anti-racism into our constitution Grundgesetz. Article 3, section 3 is to include the goal that ‘the state guarantees the protection against all group-oriented violations of the equal dignity of all human beings and works towards the abolition of all existing disadvantages.’
Additionally a new Federal ministry is to be set up for ‘social cohesion,’ which will most certainly have the exact opposite effect because it is to focus on anti-discrimination, women, immigration, queer, disabilities, family, seniors, youth and “democracy.” Of course, this shall not take away from the already existing sinecure offices because those issues were supposedly cross-sectional and must also be dealt with on all other legs of our balooning state administration.
Correction: I say in the video that BND does the external spy control business of a normal secret service. It is actually also a duty of Verfassungsschutz. However, their focus is clearly on thought crimes.
The secret service Verfassungsschutz is a thought-crime-oriented intelligence agency which officially fights extremist thinking. It currently monitors the conservative party AfD as a “Prüffall”; that means based on publicly available information. It is expected that the party will be classified as a ‘Verdachtsfall’ in the coming week, which means that Verfassungsschutz can use secret spies and false identities to obtain information. It makes it also easier to get a warrant from a court to tap their post or telecommunication.
The party’s youth organisation ‘Junge Alternative’ is already a ‘Verdachtsfall.’ The patriotism caucus “Flügel” is even classified as a “Beobachtungsfall.” That means that warrants for intrusive measures are easier to obtain. At the end of this classification ladder a party can be banned as ‘hostile to the constitution.’ But that would require the consent of the Supreme Court and it is very unlikely to be the fate of the AfD anytime soon.
One criteria for such a ban based on ‘hostility against the constitution’ is ‘activities against the idea of an understanding between peoples’ (Art 9 GG (2)). In theory this means that a group or party can be banned if it objects to any foreign ideology and thus destroys the constitution-mandated Kumbaya. Even though a legal ban of the AfD is highly unlikely, an intensified monitoring creates propaganda fodder for people who see the AfD as hostile to the constitution because of their dislike of jihad.
Angela Merkel has cobbled together a long list of policies to fight the “far-right”. Of course, this is not about the handful of neo-Nazis who are drunk by lunchtime. Nobody in his right mind cares about them.
The new German fanaticism will be flushed through various ministries. In this episode I will run you through the items that belong to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection, the Ministry of Labour and the Ministry of Defence. Merkel’s goons don’t even shy away from lecturing others about colonialism, which was a fairly mixed period of time with positive and negative aspects.
Angela Merkel has founded a ‘Cabinet Committee for the Fight Against Right-Wing Extremism and Racism.’ On Tuesday they presented their 89-points policy catalogue replete with pure horror. So I translate it for you. Yes, I said 89 points. So this is the first of four videos. Should I fail to reach anybody, I will at least be able to say that I did my best to document the disaster. The points covered in the first video are supposed to be carried out by the Ministry of the Interior. I will also show you the given “goals” mentioned in the document. The government estimates the costs of the policies to be 1.150.000.000 EUR.
With so much things going on, too much to research right now, continue with my series on Kübra Gümüsay, the activist who does not want to be your cleaner.
Our favorite social justice warrior is sharing her insight on freedom, democracy, justice and nice. Because all these things are now one and the same and mean gay marriage, Islam or migration, it is a chance to talk about that sly shift of meaning. Also the villain of our self-governing system, racism, has a definition journey behind itself. Originating in pseudo-genetics it has arrived at today’s system-rattling Halloween-costume and accent-recognition trauma that we are familiar with.
On rare occasions Merkel gets to hear criticism from the plebs. Last week a man took heart & confronted her with what he (and I) perceives as her abolition of democracy. The response reflects her own lack of understanding what Western values even are. She starting e.g. with the claim that in undemocratic countries he would have to fear for his life for posing such questions to her. She does not understand that not every country outside North Korea is already a Western Nation.
