Brainstorming European Crises

Despite the necessity to face an impending food crisis the European Union and the Dutch government have shoved down an anti-agriculture directive which keeps stirring up mass protests and violent altercations in the Netherlands. The German parliament Bundestag has turned down the option to continue nuclear energy. The ECB keeps flooding the place with money, but given the inflation that is going to change. A disorganised brainstorm.

Carl Bildt On The Unclear Motivations of Russia

Carl Bildt is a Swedish diplomat and conservative politician. In a conversation with Russian dissident Vladimir Milov he addresses the fact that the motivations stated by Russia make no sense. Ukraine’s constitution even forbade a NATO membership. This was only changed after Russia annexed Crimea, occupied government buildings in the East of the country through proxy “separatist” forces and armed years of attempts at an insurrection.

Germany Commits to Fight Own Independent Courts to Grant EU Unrestricted Power

On the 2nd December the EU Commission issued a statement on their official website that reports on the assurance of the German government to prevent ultra-vires verdicts of its courts. “Ultra vires” are cases about alleged power overreaches of an institution. The conflict that sparked the utter submission of our legal system under the arbitrary rule of the EU resulted from a struggle between the German Supreme Court and the EU Court of Justice over the rightfulness of the national central bank’s bond-buying activities abroad. I explain the details in the video. The website with the note is this one:

Éric Zemmour’s Candidacy Speech (Dubbed)

Éric Zemmour runs for president of France. I have dubbed Éric Zemmour’s candidacy speech with my own translation and added the melody again to recreate the sentiment of his original delivery.

I don’t hold any rights on his speech and less so on its visual part, but I can safely assume Monsieur Zemmour’s consent to my use of it since it is the defining nature of a political campaign to see its material widely spread.

Countering The Vaccine Mandate Arguments

As Europe boils over in the face of aggressive anti-Covid policies, more and more nations add pain to injury and roll out vaccine mandates. Olaf Scholz, the prospective Chancellor of Germany, has already stated his support for this. But what are the justifications for it? How do unvaccinated people affect others? And more importantly are these externalities, the effects of the citizens’ decisions on others, big enough to warrant government interference? In my video I look at the heart of the controversy.

The study I focus on:

The Migration Wave From Belarus

Around 40 flights from the Middle East land at Minsk airport everyday. Thousands of migrants amass on the border to Lithuania, Latvia and Poland to put pressure on their border controls. The numbers keep rising because Belarusian President Alexandr Lukashenko issues plenty of ‘tourist visas’ to load his weapon, the weapon of mass migration. The migrants are a retaliation for EU’s sanction which followed election fraud, a brutal crackdown and the forced landing of an Irish airline flight to arrest oppositional blogger Raman Pratasevich Раман Пратасевіч.

Government Wants To Know How Much We Heat

The Bundesrat (roughly comparable to the US Senate) has passed a law to monitor our heating habits. The lawmakers say that they want us to learn how to heat ‘consciously’ (German: bewussten und sparsamen Umgang mit Wärmeenergie anzuregen). A snitching, remotely accessible heating meter is to be mandated on all new installments and existing heaters will be fitted with one by the end of 2026 at the latest. On our utility bills we will not only see our energy use compared to that of the previous year, but also to the AVERAGE of OTHER RESIDENTS.

Secret Service Verfassungsschutz Snoops on Conservative Think-Tank ‘Institute for State Politics’

Some people seem to be everywhere at once. Who can say whether Dennis Prager hosts a radio show, writes scholarly books about Judaism or runs the web enterprise ‘PragerU’? He is all and does it all. Likewise father of seven children Götz Kubitschek runs the literature publishing house ‘Antaios’, operates a book retail distribution service, works an organic-food farm and is the editor-in-chief of his own magazine ‘Sezession.’ Secret service ‘Verfassungsschutz’ will now be allowed to tap his private communication and use secret spies against him and his think-tank ‘Institute for State Politics’ (German: Insitut für Staatspolitik). They have classified him now as “right-wing extremist.” And we all know what this means. Nazi-like. But the authoritarians on the left don’t admit what their accusations actually mean and ‘right-wing extremist’ is received by the wider public as “Nazi” when in Reality it is one of these fuzzy proxy-words that are too vague to allow for any defence. Kubitschek’s wife Ellen Kositza even speaks Polish!

Outside of that it is NOT the job of intelligence agencies to create or destroy potential majorities in the electorate. And what is important for people to understand is that human rights violations are acceptable here because Germans, like most of us, fall into a schadenfreude-self-booster fallacy. When somebody is hurt, we hope that he deserved it. Government overreach can be built on the sentiment that everybody has it coming.

US Airbase Ramstein (Germany) Turned Into A Refugee Camp

A sea of tents sprawls over the US American airbase Ramstein (Germany, state of Rhineland-Palatinate) to host at least 20,000 Afghans; more likely 34,000 already. About a thousand arrivals land every day and the troops have moved a 5,000 of them to their nearby military base ‘Rhine Ordnance Barracks.’ The US works feverishly to expand its capacity there to host even 6,000 of them. And while many conservatives have dropped the ball in their obsession to exploit any failure of the Biden administration, the uneasy question who can be rescued, correctly identified and who can not remains unanswered. Commentator after commentator shows compassion with that 50% of women that will have to live under the Taliban despite the Pew Research finding that 99% of those very women want to live under shariah law. Everybody feels heartless asking how the other 1% can be identified so we don’t import the very Taliban we once set out to fight. And now with the sprawling camp smack in the middle of Europe nobody knows how to get some of the “rescued” back home again.

Merkel And EU To Spend €800 Million on New Aghan Refugees

The airport escape route is about to close soon, yet more people are fleeing the Taliban. Nobody knows where they will go, through Tajikistan, through Uzbekistan, through Turkmenistan, through Pakistan, through Iran, anywhere. But Angela Merkel knows already where the most needy are. While the media shows the heart wrenching images from the airport. She offers money. To whom? To Non-governmental organizations, of course. Her buddy Ursula von der Leyen adds some more and, whoops, the bill runs up to 800 million € ($940 million).
