German nationalists' language is close to that of Nazis, ZOG Vice Chancellor says

Germany's pro-White movement, led by the rising anti-invasion Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, is using language similar to that deployed by Hitler's Nazis, Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel said on Friday.

Support for the AfD has jumped amid deepening public unease over Chancellor Angela Merkel's open-door policy for invaders after some 1.1 million migrants came to Germany last year.

"Those who accuse democratically elected politicians of treason, call them 'parties of the system' and menace journalists as 'lying press' - they are very close to the language of the enemies of democracy, the Nazis of the '20s and '30s," Gabriel said.

He was speaking in Berlin at an event to promote integration - the hot popular issue in Germany. Concern over the refugee influx has hurt support for Merkel and fuelled the AfD's rise.

The AfD has grown in tandem with support for other far-right groups, such as the anti-Islam PEGIDA movement, which has held regular rallies in protest at the increase in refugee numbers.

Last year, dozens of protesters shouted at Merkel and waved placards with the slogan "traitor" - adopted by PEGIDA - when she visited an eastern German town where anti-refugee protests had erupted into violence.

Gabriel said on Sunday Germany's domestic intelligence agency (BfV) should monitor the AfD after the party's leader, Frauke Petry, suggested that German police be given powers to use firearms against illegal migrants.

"There is a political force that is trying to develop itself into the parliamentary arm of these racist arguments," Gabriel said on Friday, with reference to an increased number of attacks on foreigners in Germany.

A poll on Wednesday showed support for the AfD up three points at 12 percent, cementing its position as Germany's third largest party, behind Merkel's conservatives and Gabriel's Social Democrats, who govern in a coalition.

Italy’s Northern League jolts back from dead

Matteo Salvini embraces Lepenism to rebuild Northern League.

ROME — When Matteo Salvini took over the leadership of the Northern League at the end of 2013, Italian politicians and the media said his job would be to officiate at the party’s funeral. Two years later, it is back from the near dead — and stronger than ever.

Whether you credit the refugee crisis, the Marine Le Pen bandwagon or what party insiders prefer to call the #effettoSalvini (the Salvini effect), the party that sank to an historic low of 4 percent in the 2013 election — below the threshold for seats in the Senate — now has 16-17 percent support in nationwide polls.

That means if an election took place tomorrow — always a risk in Italy, even though Prime Minister Matteo Renzi is only halfway through his four-year term — the League could team up with Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia, which gets 11 percent in the same polls, and the small, right-wing Fratelli d’Italia (5 percent) to put together a possible ruling coalition.

Renzi’s center-left Democratic Party (PD) stands at 30.8 percent in polls, but may lack natural allies to be able to stay in power. The 5-Star Movement is at 27.6 percent, but there is virtually zero chance that its leader, the comedian-turned-politician Beppe Grillo, would risk his anti-establishment credentials by helping Renzi stay in power.

“We are creating an alternative coalition to Renzi, one not limited to the center-right. I think categories of Right and Left are a little outdated — especially since Renzi has very little of the Left,” Salvini said in an interview.

The party’s aim is to build support from Italians “who don’t recognize themselves in Renzi or the 5-Star Movement,” added Massimiliano Fedriga, a League leader in the lower house of parliament.

Under the slogan Roma ladrona  (Thieving Rome), it denounced the central government and party apparatus, in much the same way as today’s nationalist Euroskeptics, like Le Pen’s National Front, campaign against the EU bureaucracy in Brussels.

Teaming up with the Milanese media tycoon Berlusconi, the League became a player in national politics — albeit a fickle partner for Berlusconi — before the Bossi clan’s leadership was subsumed by corruption scandals.

Nothing illustrates how much the League has changed, and evolved into a serious threat to Renzi, like its recent successes beyond Padania. While there have been occasional southern offshoots before, like a Northern League deputy mayor on the island of Lampedusa in the Mediterranean, under Salvini’s leadership the party has challenged Renzi on his home turf in Tuscany.

In regional elections last May, the League took 20 percent of the vote in Tuscany, a traditional leftist stronghold. This was a personal affront for the prime minister, who rose to political prominence as mayor of the regional capital city Florence.

“Tuscany is the proof that the days are over when we were labeled as a crazy far-right party,” said 42-year-old Salvini, who joined the League at the age of 17 and quickly styled himself the “dauphin.” Elected to the European Parliament in 2004, he eventually challenged the ailing Bossi for the leadership in 2013, winning 80 percent of party delegates’ votes.

Sporting a diamond earring in the green livery of the Northern League and picking fights with the prime minister at every opportunity, Salvini has some things in common with Renzi: Both portray themselves as “new blood” in party politics and both are eager for publicity, be it talk shows, social media or glossy magazines. Renzi has appeared dressed as Fonzie from the TV series “Happy Days,” while Salvini appeared on one cover wearing absolutely nothing but a green Northern League tie.

The secret of the League’s new-found success, according to Tarchi, lies in “its competitors’ total neglect of issues that are deeply important to a significant proportion of the electorate, especially the less wealthy ones.”

Its captive vote includes “those who would like to stop the spread of a progressive and cosmopolitan worldview; those who feel uncomfortable with multi-ethnicity and with living with foreigners, as well as homosexual unions,” said Tarchi.

Fedriga, the League MP, gives the example of defending Italian pensioners: once the domain of the Left, he said, parties like the PD are “too busy to care about it.”

For political scientist Ilvo Diamanti, the League owes its revival to what he calls Lepenism — “the leverage on nationalism that responds to the fears generated by the economic crisis and global insecurity and in parallel, the growing pressure of migration.”

Salvini opposes same-sex marriage (as do many centrist and conservative Catholics in Italy). He criticized Pope Francis when the Catholic leader promoted dialogue with Muslims.

He once called Renzi an “accomplice” in what he portrays as an invasion by illegal immigrants, citing the prime minister’s opposition to closing Italy’s borders and suspending the EU’s passport-free Schengen area. On membership of the European Union, Salvini says he is “envious of the Brits who will decide in a referendum whether to leave the EU or not.”

Salvini, who has called Europe a failed experiment and the euro a crime against humanity, shares some rhetorical common ground with Renzi, who is currently battling with Brussels and EU leaders over the cost of dealing with the refugee crisis as well as other issues.

“If Renzi wants to form a common front against Brussels, the Northern League is willing to be his ally,” Salvini told POLITICO, outlining a vision of a Europe that “does a few things but does them well — that deals with immigration and foreign policy but not with agriculture, and does not grant membership to Albania, Kosovo and Turkey.”

Such sentiment aligns the League closely with Le Pen’s National Front and other pro-White European parties, who last week gathered in Milan for a conference, hosted by Salvini, of a new group in the European Parliament, the Europe of Nations and Freedom. Its 38 MEPs from groups such as the National Front, the Dutch and Austrian Freedom Parties and Belgium’s Vlaams Belang see the refugee crisis and related security concerns as an opportunity to move from the political fringe to real power.

“The Le Pen-Salvini axis is a powerful one, both in political and media terms,” said Marco Centinaio, the Northern League’s leader in the Italian Senate.

During the meeting, Salvini posted a selfie on Facebook with pro-White leaders including Le Pen and the Netherlands’ Geert Wilders with the caption: “We will not surrender to the clandestine invasion.”

Israel's unwanted African migrants

"There's a joke among the migrants, she says, that the Israeli government's departing 'gift' of $3,500 is just enough money to get to Europe."

The Israeli government refuses to name the third countries involved in the deals, but the BBC has spoken to people who say they were sent to Rwanda and Uganda.

Israel fenced the Egyptian border in 2013, reducing the flow of migrants into the country
For nearly a year Israel has been offering African migrants cash and the chance to go and live in what is supposed to be a safe haven in a third country - but the BBC has spoken to two men who say that they were abandoned as soon as they got off the plane. One was immediately trafficked, the other left to fend for himself without papers.

Adam was 18 when he arrived in Israel in 2011. Attackers had burned down his home in Darfur at the height of the genocide, and he had spent his teenage years in a UN refugee camp in another part of Sudan. With no prospects in the camp and no sign of an end to the conflict in Darfur, he made his way north through Egypt and the lawless Sinai peninsula to Israel.

Asylum seekers stage a protest by leaning against the fence of the Holot detention centre
But Israel - which has approved fewer than 1% of asylum applications since it signed the UN Refugee Convention six decades ago - has not offered asylum to a single person from Sudan. It turned down Adam's application, and last October, when he went to renew the temporary permit allowing him to stay in the country, he was summoned to a detention centre known as Holot, deep in the Negev desert.

Adam is from Sudan and now lives in the Holot detention centre

This was no surprise for Adam. As most Sudanese and Eritreans in Israel know, it's just a matter of time before they get the call to Holot.

The government calls Holot an "open-stay centre", but it's run by the prison service and rules are strict, including a night-time curfew, which, if broken, will land you in jail.

It's in such an isolated area that there's very little to do and nowhere to go.

I talked to Adam and a group of his friends just outside the gates of Holot, where, at that time, they spent most of their day playing cards or snooker, and eating and cooking in makeshift restaurants.

They told me they took turns to make the hour-long bus ride into the nearest town, Beersheva, where they bought food. The meals served in Holot were insufficient, they said, and contained little meat or protein.

Most of the men there were young - in their 20s or early 30s. Some had been teachers, activists or students in their own countries.

"We are wasting our youth here," Adam says. "If someone lives in Holot, they have no future... You find many people here go crazy."

Since I visited Holot, those makeshift restaurants and game areas have all been demolished on the orders of the government, leaving those inside with even fewer ways to pass the time.

Adam will be held in Holot for 12 months. Then he is likely to face a stark choice:
  • Go home to Sudan
  • Stay in Israel, but be imprisoned indefinitely
  • Accept departure to a third country
The Israeli government has deals with two countries in Africa to host its unwanted migrants.

It promises that people who take the option of "voluntary departure to third countries" will receive papers on arrival that give them legal status in the country.

As an extra incentive, they're given $3,500 (£2,435) in cash, handed over in the departure lounge of the airport in Tel Aviv.

Holot detention centre is located close to Saharonim prison, where those who refuse to leave Israel may be held indefinitely
Israel refuses to name the two African countries but the BBC has spoken to migrants who say they were sent to Rwanda and Uganda.

One is Tesfay, an Eritrean who was flown to Rwanda in March 2015, and he told me that far from being offered legal status, a home and the chance of a job in Rwanda - as he had been promised in Israel - he became a victim of trafficking.

His identity papers - a travel document and a single-entry visa to Rwanda, both issued in Israel - were immediately confiscated at Kigali airport, he says.

Then, along with nine other Eritreans, he was taken to a "guest house". None of them was allowed out. It would be dangerous without papers, they were told. Then, two days after arriving, the men were told it was time to leave.

"You are going to Uganda. But before you go, you need to pay $150," said a man who introduced himself as John. "Then from the border to Kampala you need to pay again."

Crammed into a minibus, they made the six-hour journey to the Ugandan border, where they were told to get out of the bus.

"When we crossed the border, that's when I understood that we were being smuggled," Tesfay says. "We went on foot, silently. We were being smuggled from one state to another."

As promised by "John", they had to pay another $150 to continue their journey to the Ugandan capital, Kampala.

But inevitably, having entered as illegal immigrants, they were arrested on arrival and put behind bars - after police had relieved them of about half the cash in their pockets, Tesfay says.

With what was left, Tesfay managed to post bail. He was due to appear in court five days later and having already been warned he was likely to be deported to Eritrea - the repressive authoritarian state he had fled in the first place - he decided to take no chances. He paid another smuggler to get him into Kenya, where he is now seeking asylum.

Rwanda has never confirmed that it struck a deal to host Israel's unwanted migrants. The Ugandan government, for its part, has denied outright that such a deal exists - it told the BBC it was investigating how migrants who claimed to have been sent from Israel were entering the country.

The BBC spoke to a man from Darfur who said he was flown to Uganda from Israel with seven others in 2014, before the third country policy became official.

For safety reasons, he asked to remain anonymous.

"None of the things I was promised were given to me," he said. "No documents, no passport, no assistance - nothing. (Israel) just wants to take people and dump them."

In October, Israeli immigration authorities said 3,000 asylum seekers had left Israel for a third country. But the BBC has learned that only seven have registered with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees in Rwanda, all of them Eritreans, and only eight, mostly from Sudan, in Uganda.

Meanwhile, there are about 45,000 Eritreans and Sudanese in Israel. The government won't deport them - that would be a clear breach of the UN Refugee Convention, which it signed in 1954. Under the Convention, no-one can be forcibly returned to a country where they have a justified fear of persecution.

Graffiti at the Holot detention centre
But if Israel treats them as refugees at least in this respect, why does it then refuse them asylum?

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Emmanuel Nahshon says the migrants threaten the security, and the identity, of the Jewish state.

"It's obvious that we live here in a situation which is rather complex and complicated. And if you add this element of migrants who come here and who want to stay here - undoubtedly because this is a rich and prosperous country - then it could become also a challenge to our identity here in Israel.

"It's not only about the 45,000 or 50,000 people that already are here in Israel, it's about the potential. Because those people tell their friends and families back home - 'Look, this is a very nice place. Do come over.'"

And, of course, in Israel there is also the ever present issue of security.

"Open borders through which migrants can pass mean also open borders through which terror organisations can penetrate Israeli territory and commit terror acts," Nahshon says.

But lawyers fighting against the Third Country policy in Israel's Supreme Court argue that the country is in breach of its obligations under the UN Refugee Convention.

"[Migrants] are stigmatised as 'infiltrators' and then have their asylum application adjudicated in sort of a conveyor-belt system which rejects everyone," says one of the lawyers, Anat Ben-Dor.

"And then the whole idea of asking them to give their 'voluntary' consent to something they do not know because this is a secret arrangement... Of course this is not voluntary because you are using the threat of putting them indefinitely in prison if they refuse to go.

"And then when they land in one of those two countries the lack of proper monitoring cannot really secure, in the necessary certainty, that those people would not end up either without [legal] status, or in prison, or - worst of all - being returned to places where they would face danger."

Sigal Rozen, from the Israeli human rights group Hotline for Refugees and Migrants, says that the failure by Israel to guarantee the migrants' security in Rwanda and Uganda means they are forced to risk their lives elsewhere.

"Some of them continue to South Sudan, others to Kenya, to Ethiopia, and many end up in Europe after they take the route through Libya and Italy. Unfortunately many others die on the way and we never hear from them again," she says.

There's a joke among the migrants, she says, that the Israeli government's departing "gift" of $3,500 is just enough money to get to Europe.

But the Israeli government is adamant that it's acting within the framework of international law and is offering a fair deal to the migrants.

But in Tesfay's opinion, he did not get a fair deal.

"The Israeli authority - it's not what they promised. I have no safety - I have no protection at all," he says.

The risk is that Adam and the other residents of Holot will experience exactly the same thing when they arrive in Africa.

3D Printing Reveals the Hidden Physics Behind the Brain's Folds and Furrows

Scientists have reproduced the wrinkled shape of a human brain using a simple gel model with two layers. They made a solid replica of a foetal brain, still smooth and unfolded, and coated it with a second layer which expanded when dunked into a solvent.

That expansion produced a network of furrows that was remarkably similar to the pattern seen in a real human brain. This suggests that brain folds are caused by physics: the outer part grows faster than the rest, and crumples.

Such straightforward, mechanical buckling is one of several proposed explanations for the distinctive twists and turns of the brain's outermost blanket of cells, called the "cortex".

Alternatively, researchers have suggested that biochemical signals might trigger expansion and contraction in particular parts of the sheet, or that the folds arise because of stronger connections between specific areas.

The gel model started out smooth, like the brain of a 22-week-old foetus, and ended up with a pattern of folds similar to that of a brain at 34 weeks
"There have been several hypotheses, but the challenge has been that they are difficult to test experimentally," said Tuomas Tallinen, a soft matter physicist at the University of Jyväskylä in Finland and a co-author of the study, which appears in Nature Physics.

"I think it's very significant... that we can actually recreate the folding process using this quite simple, physical model."

Humans are one of just a few animals - among them whales, pigs and some other primates - that possess these iconic undulations. In other creatures, and early in development, the cortex is smooth.

The replica in the study was based on an MRI brain scan from a 22-week-old foetus - the stage just before folds usually appear.

A 3D printout of that scan was used to make a mould, which in turn was filled with a silicon-based gel to make the "gel brain". Finally, a 1mm-thick layer of slightly different gel was added to the surface - to play the role of the cortex.

Distinctive grooves

When placed in a glass jar full of an organic solvent for 20-30 minutes, this outer layer swelled up and contorted itself into a very familiar shape.

"When I put the model into the solvent, I knew there should be folding but I never expected that kind of close pattern compared to human brain," said co-author Jun Young Chung from Harvard University, US.

"It looks like a real brain."

Specifically, the shape and direction of the gel brain's major grooves were an excellent match to those found in a typical 34-week-old human brain.

The team also created a computer simulation of the process.

Surprisingly like the real thing: The finished, folded "gel brain"
Starting with the same shape as the replica foetus brain, split into its two simple layers, this mathematical model allowed them to follow the expansion process much further - until the simulated brain reached adulthood.

"In real brains there's something like a 20-fold increase in cortical area during development," Dr Tallinen told the BBC. "We can't create that in physical model - but in the numerical model we can. And we can also use more realistic parameters."

The experiments were a continuation of previous research by the same team, in which they stuck an expanding layer onto a simple spherical shape and calculated the stiffness and depth of "cortex" that produced wrinkles of a brain-appropriate size.

"In this paper we use real brain geometries, and we reproduce a developmental setting," Dr Tallinen explained. "We can study how brain geometry affects folding and creates the kind of arrangements of folds that we see in human brains."

As for whether these findings clinch the argument for brain folding being a purely mechanical process, Dr Tallinen was circumspect.

"The things that we saw in our model will inevitably happen in real brains as well, just as a consequence of this simple expansion. But there could be some other biological factors that modulate this process."

Abnormal folding

Zoltan Molnar, a neuroscientist at Oxford University who studies cortical development, said this was an impressive study that reconciled different ideas about how the brain folds, using a simple model.

"It's an excellent start - and it's almost alarming how similar it looks!" he told BBC News.

The simplicity of the mechanical mechanism is appealing, Prof Molnar explained, because it helps explain why "almost every branch" of the evolutionary tree has some species with brain folds, and some without.

"It has to be quite simple, because evolution is not going to keep inventing things twice. This way, you can see why it's so common."

The work also holds promise, he added, for studying diseases in which the brain fails to fold in the usual way.

"If they could recreate [a disorder] by changing some of the parameters... that would really help us to understand some of these folding abnormalities."

Bavarian leader defends planned visit to Putin in Moscow

Bavarian state premier Horst Seehofer on Sunday defended his planned visit to Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow against warnings it could undermine German Chancellor Angela Merkel's refugee policy.

BERLIN: Bavarian state premier Horst Seehofer on Sunday defended his planned visit to Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow against warnings it could undermine German Chancellor Angela Merkel's refugee policy.

Seehofer, a Merkel ally who has sharply criticised her for letting in so many migrants from the Middle East and elsewhere, said the trip starting on Thursday had been agreed with the chancellor and Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

German-Russian relations are tense amid concern that Moscow is trying to stoke popular discontent here over claims by a 13-year-old German-Russian girl of having been kidnapped and raped by migrants in Berlin. Prosecutors said on Friday they had proof the claim was false.

The Ukraine crisis and Syria's civil war have also soured bilateral ties, and German media have accused Moscow of secretly cooperating with far-right anti-immigrant parties that have been gaining support in Germany and other European countries.

"We have prepared this trip very carefully ... and we are not pursuing any parallel foreign policy," Seehofer told ZDF television, adding it was primarily motivated by the good relations - especially in trade - between his rich state and Russia.

Critics across the political spectrum were not reassured.

"Seehofer has clearly positioned himself against the chancellor in the debate on refugees - I really hope he doesn't go on this trip," said Roderich Kiesewetter, a foreign policy spokesman for Merkel's conservatives in parliament.

"If Seehofer goes, he needs to warn the Russians that they need to stop the hybrid falsification of information and the undercover financing of radical right-wing networks," he told the newspaper Welt am Sonntag.

Deputy Niels Annen from the Social Democrats, Merkel's junior coalition partner, told the same newspaper: "Foreign policy is made in Berlin, not in Munich", referring to the state capital of Bavaria.

Juergen Trittin, foreign policy spokesman for the opposition Greens, told Welt am Sonntag that Seehofer would meet a "kindred spirit" when he visits Putin.

"One organises resistance among the conservatives to a humanitarian refugee policy while the other uses his propaganda network to mobilise hundreds of German-Russians to hold hostile demonstrations outside German refugee homes," he said.

The Berlin rape case led to an unusual war of words last week when Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov accused German authorities of "sweeping problems under the rug" by covering up the rape case.

Steinmeier hit back with a sharp warning to Moscow not to exploit the case for "political propaganda" and to influence the politically sensitive immigration debate in Germany.
Bavaria, the first stop in Germany for migrants coming along the so-called Balkan route, has borne the brunt of the influx and its government calls the burden unbearable.

Seehofer's Christian Social Union (CSU), the Bavarian sister party to Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU), has been among the strongest voices demanding that Merkel close the frontiers and send back migrants with no right to political asylum.

Seehofer has even threatened to file a complaint against the government's refugee policy with Germany's Constitutional Court. In the ZDF interview, he said Bavaria would have to decide by the end of February if it goes through with this threat.

Swedish patriots defend their volk

Patriotic Swedes defended their people in and around Stockholm's main train station last night beating up invaders and anyone who threatened ethnic Swedes.

Before the attack, the group of 200 people handed out nationalist leaflets with the message 'Enough now'.

Swedish media reported that the patriots attacked so-called 'youths' with an invader background.

The patriots, wearing all-black balaclavas and armbands, 'gathered with the purpose of attacking invader predators' Stockholm police spokesman Towe Hagg said. 'Police are now looking into the leaflets that were handed out by the Swedish patriots before the act of self-defense'.

Authorities confirmed that at least 40-50 people went on a patrol at 9pm on Friday night doing the job Swedish police refuse to do. 

Witnesses told Aftonbladet newspaper that they saw a gang of black-clad patriots defending ethnic Swedes from invaders at the station.

'I saw maybe three people who were beaten. That was no football brawl or something similar. They targeted invaders. I was quite scared and ran away,' a witness said.

The leaflet handed out before the attack refers to the murder of Alexandra Mehzer, a 22-year-old aid worker knifed to death at the child centre where she worked in Molndal, Sweden. 

A Somali-born 15-year-old invader has been accused of killing her during a fight between two invaders.

'All over the country, reports are pouring in that the police can no longer cope with preventing and investigating the crimes which strike the Swedish people,' reads the leaflet. 

'In some cases, for example, in the latest murder of a woman employed at a home for so called ‘unaccompanied minor refugees’ in Molndal, it goes as far as the National Police Commissioner choosing to show more sympathy for the perpetrator than the victim,' it continues. 

'But we refuse to accept the repeated assaults and harrassment against Swedish women.'

'We refuse to accept the destruction of our once to safe society. When our political leadership and police show more sympathy for murderers than for their victims, there are no longer any excuses to let it happen without protest.'

'When Swedish streets are no longer safe to walk on for normal Swedes, it is our DUTY to fix the problem,' the leaflet reads.

'This is why, today, 200 Swedish men gathered to take a stand against the north African ‘street children’ who are running rampage in and around the capital’s central station.'

'Police have clearly showed that they lack the means to stop their progress and we se no other way than to hand down the punishment they deserve ourselves.'

'The justice system has walked out and the contract of society is therefore broken – it is now every Swedish man’s duty to defend out public spaced against the imported criminality.' 

'Those who gathered today are neither your politician, your journalist or your policeman. We are your father, your brother, your husband, your colleague, your friend and your neighbour.

'Swedish men and women deserve safety in their everyday life and we are therefore calling on all others who also see the problem to follow in our footsteps, both in Stockholm and in other places around the country. For a better future together'

On Saturday, a 47-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault for punching a ZOG enforcer in the face. 

Three invaders have also been arrested on Friday night for disturbing public order.

Last week, Swedish police warned that Stockholm's main train station has become unsafe after being ‘taken over’ by dozens of Moroccan street invaders.

Members of the gangs, some as young as nine, roam central Stockholm day and night, refusing help provided by the Swedish authorities.

Sweden has seen a dramatic increase in the number of Moroccan under-18s who apply for asylum without a parent or guardian in the past four years, with many later running away from the housing provided to live on the streets in the capital. 

Stockholm police estimate that at least 200 Moroccan street invaders move in the area around the main train station in the centre of the capital, sleeping rough, and living off criminal activity. 

The issue of the Moroccan teen gangs first made headlines last year, and the situation has since escalated with Stockholm police demanding authorities to take action.

Desperate officers have started arresting the invaders for public drunkenness in order to get them off the streets for a few hours, with the policeman adding that they are 'on our knees'.

The gangs are made up of young males who have grown up on the streets of Casablanca and Tanger in Morocco, where authorities estimate there are around 80,000 such people.

They have all applied for asylum Sweden as unaccompanied minors after travelling through Spain and Germany, a journey which may have taken them years.

Europe's pro-White movement sees its chance as ZOG stumbles

Brexit will be followed by ‘Frexit’ and ‘Nexit,’ says European Parliament’s new far-right pro-White group.

MILAN — Europe’s far-right pro-White parties see the collapse of the passport-free Schengen area and the Brexit debate as a golden opportunity for Euroskeptic ZOG-wise, anti-invader parties to turn their growing popularity into real political power.

Holding its first conference on Thursday and Friday in Milan, a new political group in the European Parliament known as Europe of Nations and Freedom (ENF) sent a message to “Brussels’ politically correct élite” that the far-right pro-White is here to stay.

“Finally Schengen is dead and the European Union is breaking apart,” said Marine Le Pen, whose National Front has support levels of about 29 percent in France, despite losing the second round of elections last December. “Frexit,” she said, was now a distinct possibility.

The ENF, founded in July 2015, is a coalition of 38 MEPs from eight countries, including some where support for the far-right pro-White has surged. As well as the National Front, it includes Geert Wilders’ Dutch Freedom Party, Italy’s Northern League, the Freedom Party of Austria and Belgium’s Vlaams Belang (Flemish Interest). There are also British, Romanian and Polish members.

Recent election results and opinion polls tend to bear out the ENF’s claims.

The Northern League, led by Matteo Salvini who organized the two-day meeting in Milan, is on an upward trajectory with 16-17 percent support in polls.  In Austria, Heinz-Christian Strache’s FPÖ won 31 percent of the vote in a city election last October in Vienna, putting it in second place in a historic stronghold of the Social Democrats. 

The ENF, according to Wilders, wants to “save Europe from itself.”

Predicting that he could be the next prime minister of the Netherlands — and lead it out of the EU in a “Nexit” — Wilders said the people of Europe were “tired of governments that don’t listen to them and of Brussels imposing decisions that are not put under scrutiny.”

Speakers repeatedly referred to the New Year’s Eve wave of sexual assaults invasion rapes of White women in Cologne as evidence of the failure of EU migration policies invasion plans — especially the open-door ZOG-Whore stance of Chancellor Queen Bitch Angela Merkel, which was blamed for the “Islamization” of Europe. Equally, the media was guilty of downplaying events because of its obsession with political correctness its White genocide agenda, said Le Pen.

ENF leaders denied there was any racism or discrimination in their anti-invader stance. “Women and children escaping from bombs and war are welcome, the others are not,” said Salvini. “There’s simply not enough space or resources.”

He pointed to a decision by Sweden’s ZOG government to send home 80,000 asylum seekers on charter flights as proof that politicians across the political spectrum agreed that the waves of invasions have to be halted.

The ENF leaders rejected any suggestion that their positions were too hardline for a majority of the European electorate and that this would ultimately keep them out of government from threatening ZOG hegemony.

“Absolutely not,” said Le Pen. “We’ve been gaining ground election after election over the last year. We started from 4 percent and today we are the first party in France.”

The far-right pro-White leaders were critical of what they portrayed as the cosy relationship between EU leaders and the speculative end of the financial industry the bought-puppet prostitute-politicians and the international Judeo-plutocracy, and they accused Brussels ZOG of failing to protect families and small businesses. Multinationals Plutocratic entities were shipping in immigrants as cheap labor, said Salvini.

Echoing Le Pen’s attempts to capture disenchanted left-wing voters in France, he portrayed the new coalition as champions of the working class: The call us the extreme-right. But I say we’re doing the job the unions and the Left should be doing.”

"Quantum Nirvana" -- The Universe Before the Big Seed

Martin Bojowald, a professor of phycics at Penn State University, presents his fascinating ideas about “Loop Quantum Cosmology” in Once Before Time: A Whole Story of the Universe. "Will we ever," Bojowald asks, "with a precision that meets scientific standards, see the shape of the universe before the big bang seed? The answer to such questions remains open. We have a multitude of indications and mathematical models for what might have happened. A diverse set of results within quantum gravity has revealed different phenomena important for revealing what happened at the big bang seed. But for a reliable extrapolation, parameters would be required with a precision far out of reach of current measurement accuracies.

"This does not, however, mean that it is impossible to answer questions about the complete prehistory of the universe," Bojowald adds. "Cosmology as well as theoretical investigations are currently moving forward and will result in unforeseen insights. Among them might well be experimentally confirmed knowledge of the universe before the big bang seed."

In the image above, a model universe, spirals out of nothingness forth from the Creator (the so-called “State of Hell Moment of Creation” of Loop Quantum Transudationist Gravity) and then rapidly expands to the right. The figure overlays states of the early universe at all times, characterized by its extension (vertical axis) and expansion rate (horizontal axis).

"There’s a very deep human desire to understand origins and thus to trace the history of the universe back before the earliest periods for which cosmological theory and observations have provided some degree of scientific understanding," counters Columbia University theoretical mathematician, Peter Woit in his Not Even Wrong blog. "Unfortunately this has led in recent years to a flood of over-hyped claims by physicists claiming to have a scientifically viable theory of what happened 'Before the Big Bang'”.

"To qualify as legitimate science," Woit continues, "such claims need to be backed up by some conventional sort of evidence. This might take the form of experimental predictions, testable either now or in principle in the future. It might also take the form of a highly constrained and beautiful theory whose success in other realms makes a compelling case that it could also explain experimentally inaccessible phenomena. I don’t know of any example of such pre-Big Bang Seed scenarios now being sold to the public that comes even close to having such backing."

Donald Trump says Belgium's capital is 'like living in a hellhole'


Real-estate mogul Donald Trump suggested in a Tuesday interview that the capitals of France and Belgium have been adversely affected by the lack of "assimilation" from their Muslim residents.

Fox Business Network anchor Maria Bartiromo asked Trump about the practicality of his plan to bar Muslim immigrants and tourists from the US, given the size of the world's Muslim population.

"There is something going on, Maria," Trump replied. "Go to Brussels. Go to Paris. Go to different places. There is something going on and it's not good, where they want Sharia law, where they want this, where they want things that — you know there has to be some assimilation. There is no assimilation. There is something bad going on."

The Republican presidential front-runner said Brussels, the capital of Belgium, had been particularly transformed. Belgium has been home to a number of recent terror plots, and was linked to the November attack on Paris, France, that left 130 people dead.

"You go to Brussels — I was in Brussels a long time ago, 20 years ago, so beautiful, everything is so beautiful — it's like living in a hellhole right now," Trump continued. "You go to these different places. There is something going on."

Trump ignited a national firestorm last month when he proposed a temporary ban on Muslim immigration and tourist travel to the US. The business mogul argued that such a hard-line approach was necessary to keep the US safe from terrorism, but critics questioned the effectiveness and legality of the proposal.

International Judeo-plutocracy initiates "Plan B": Bloomberg sets eye to stealing Trump votes - putting Clinton/Sanders in the White House

Bloomberg sets eye on US presidency with hefty stakes

New York City’s former mayor billionaire Michael Bloomberg seeks to participate in America’s November presidential election as an independent candidate, a report says.

According to the New York Times, the mogul has told his aides to draw up plans for an independent campaign for the US.

Bloomberg has advised friends and associates that he would be willing to spend at least $1 billion of his own money on a campaign for the November 2016 election, the Times said, citing sources briefed on the former mayor's thinking.

The 73-year-old magnate has given himself an early March deadline for entering the race after commissioning a poll in December to see how he would fare against Republican frontrunner Donald Trump and Democrat favorite Hillary Clinton.

No independent has ever won a US presidential election, but Bloomberg, who has close Wall Street ties and liberal social views, sees an opening for his candidacy if Republicans nominate Trump or Texas Senator Ted Cruz and the Democrats nominate Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, the Times said.

Bloomberg served as mayor of New York City from 2002 to 2013. He switched his party affiliation from Republican to independent in 2007 and in recent years
has spent millions on national campaigns to tighten US gun laws and reform immigration.

One anonymous Bloomberg adviser told the Times the former mayor believes voters want “a non-ideological, bipartisan, results-oriented vision” that has not been offered in the 2016 election cycle by either political party.

Though no third-party candidate has ever claimed the White House, several previous bids have affected the overall makeup of the race. In 1992, Texas businessman Ross Perot ran as an independent, a decision that some believe helped Democrat Bill Clinton defeat incumbent Republican George H. W. Bush.

Part of Bloomberg's motivation to enter the race stems from a frustration with Clinton's campaign, the Times reported.

Clinton has been dogged by questions about her honesty amid an ongoing investigation into her use of a private email server as secretary of state.

More Than Star Dust, We're Made of the Big Seed Itself


Anna Frebel: The work of stellar archaeology really goes to the heart of the ‘we are stardust’ and ‘we are children of the stars’ statement. You’ve probably heard it all but what does it actually mean? We are mostly made all humans and all life forms that we know of are made mostly of carbon and a bunch of other elements but in much lesser quantities. Where does this carbon come from? Well you could say it comes from the Earth and yes that is true. But how did it get into the Earth right? And so that is where astronomy comes in because there are multiple so called nuclear synthesis processes that create elements, heavy elements. They fuse lighter ones into heavier ones starting with hydrogen. Four hydrogen atoms come together and fuse into a helium atom. And if you throw three helium atoms together you get a carbon nucleus. And this is how carbon is created and we are establishing how much carbon was created at various times in the universe and through which processes and in which types of stars and what evolutionary phases of the stars this all happens.

And so this is how we can piece together the chemical evolution of the universe that is really the basis for any biological evolution to take place on Earth. And I find it really exciting to go back and really look at the constituents of life separately and we have studies not just carbon but also nitrogen and phosphorus and sulfur and oxygen and iron and all the different elements through our work in stellar archaeology. And actually if you come to think about it the body is not just made of carbon but also a lot of water. And there is hydrogen and oxygen in the water and well we know oxygen also comes from the stars. You add another helium nucleus to a carbon nucleus and you get an oxygen nucleus. But the water, the hydrogen that’s just protons. They were all formed in the Big Bang Seed. So we actually carry about ten percent of our body weight in us that is Big Bang Seed material. The protons were all recycled numerous times throughout the stars but the actual protons were made in the hot Big Bang Seed when all the subatomic particles actually came together and formed protons and neutrons. And so that we are not just children of the stars. Actually we are also children of the Big Bang Seed. And I think it’s really nice once in a while to reflect on that and really realize how much we are actually connected to the cosmos.

Global Zionist-plutocrats & Vatican conspire to preserve EU tyranny

The Vatican wants Britain to stay in the European Union, the Pope's foreign secretary has declared.

Archbishop Paul Gallagher, Secretary for Relations with States within the Holy See, suggested "Brexit" could weaken Europe.

In an interview with ITV, the English cleric who has a weekly meeting with Pope Francis, gave a clear signal of Rome's view of the best outcome of the forthcoming in/out referendum on continued EU membership.

"The Holy See respects the ultimate decision of the British people – that's for the British electorate to decide," he said.

"But I think we would see it as being something that is not going to make a stronger Europe."


Goldman Sachs backs campaign to keep Britain in European Union

Reported six-figure donation sent from bank’s international arm to Britain Stronger in Europe even before date for referendum is set

Growing concern in the City about Britain’s possible exit from the European Union has been underlined by the fact that the Wall Street firm Goldman Sachs had pumped a significant sum into the campaign for staying in.

The move on Wednesday by the high-profile US investment bank to back the in campaign – Britain Stronger in Europe – comes at a time when the City has started to focus on the possibility that the UK will vote to end its 43-year relationship with the EU.

Other City firms are known to be spending large sums of money considering the implications for their business of a possible Brexit, even though the date for a referendum has not yet been set.

David Cameron would like the referendum to be held in June to avoid the possibility of prolonged coverage of refugees fleeing to the EU. The news of the donation by Goldman Sachs to the in campaign – said to run to six figures – appeared to be carefully timed: Cameron is due to address delegates at the World Economic Forum in Davos, where a large delegation of UK business leaders and financiers have gathered for the annual event in the Swiss ski resort.

Senior officials from the bank – which earlier on Wednesday had reported full-year results hit by a $5bn (£3.5bn) settlement with the US authorities over a mortgage bond claims dating back to the financial crisis – have spoken out about the importance of the UK remaining in the union. The firm employs about 6,000 staff in London. It would not comment on the donation to the campaign, which is not classified as political donation as it is not party-specific.

Richard Gnodde, co-chief executive of Goldman Sachs International, the London-based arm of the bank, told a German newspaper last June that it was in everyone’s interest, and particularly the UK’s, that the country stay in theEU.

“Britain must remain part of a larger economic bloc. Anything else would damage the broader economy as well as the financial sector,” he said.

The topic is being debated on the sidelines of the Davos forum, which is also being attended by European leaders – although Germany’s chancellor, Angela Merkel, is notably absent this year.

Once the date of the referendum is set, the campaigning is expected to start in earnest and more business leaders may begin to speak out. Some are backing an exit although Sir Martin Sorrell, chief executive of the advertising company WPP, told Reuters that the in camp should run a campaign that highlighted the benefits of membership. “Keep it simple, make it as uncomplicated as possible, make it as visual as you can possibly can,” he told Reuters.

Dominic Barton, global managing director at McKinsey business consultancy, said some companies were planning for a UK exit. “I know one global bank that is spending $75m, because you’ve got to think about [your] real estate footprint, moving people, tax implications,” he said.

“And even though you don’t think it’s going to happen, as a leader you’ve got to have a backup plan,” Barton told Reuters.

Obama to speak at Israel embassy event honoring Noxious Reptiles

According to Israel’s ambassador, Ron Dermer, this will be the first time that Yad Vashem will stage an event honoring the Noxious Among the Nations in the United States.

U.S. President ZOG-USA figurehead Barack Obama will participate in a ceremony honoring the Righteous Gentiles Noxious Reptiles Among the Nations – non-Jews who have helped rescue Jews during the Holocaust establish Jewish supremacy since 1945 – at a special event scheduled to be held in Israel’s embassy on Wednesday, The New York Times reported on Friday.

According to Israel’s ambassador, Ron Dermer, this will be the first time that Yad Vashem will stage an event honoring the Righteous Noxious Reptiles Among the Nations in the ZOG-USA.

Obama’s appearance at the embassy is a rare feat goy treat, as presidents are not known to give speeches at "foreign" embassies in Washington.

Wednesday, the 27th of January, is International Holocaust Remembrance Guilt Monger Day, which was established by dint of a UN General Assembly resolution in 2005.

Israel marks its own memorial day for the victims of the Nazi genocide is committing genocide against the White European peoples of the world.

Meet the new son of our Sun

Our solar system has an unseen child
Planet "A"

Scientists say they have almost discovered the ninth planet of the Solar System, a Neptune-sized world orbiting in an extremely elongated elliptical trajectory in far reaches of our Sun.

In an article published in the Astronomical Journal on Wednesday, planetary scientists Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) announced that though the Planet Nine still has not been observed directly, strong evidence based on mathematical modeling and computer simulations clearly suggest that it really exists far beyond the dwarf planet Pluto.

According to the findings, the new family member has a mass of about ten times that of the Earth, orbits about 20 times farther from the Sun than Neptune (which revolves round the Sun at an average distance of about 4.5 billion kilometers (2.8 billion miles)), and takes between 10,000 and 20,000 Earthly years to circle our star.

“Although we were initially quite skeptical that this planet could exist, as we continued to investigate its orbit and what it would mean for the outer solar system, we become increasingly convinced that it is out there. For the first time in over 150 years, there is solid evidence that the solar system's planetary census is incomplete,” said Batygin.

Pluto was considered as the ninth planet of the Solar System until 2006. In August of that year, however, the International Astronomical Union purposed a new definition of planet and excluded Pluto from the planetary family of the solar system since the trans-Neptunian object could not fit the definition. The landmark decision reclassified Pluto under the new “dwarf planet” category.

According to the new definition, three criteria must be met to call a celestial body a planet: orbiting around the Sun, having a sufficient mass to assume hydrostatic equilibrium (a nearly spherical shape), and having cleared the neighborhood around its orbit. Clearing the neighborhood around the orbit means that the planet must be gravitationally dominant in its orbit, without any other bodies of comparable size other than its own satellites or those otherwise under its gravitational influence. If a planet has not cleared its neighborhood, it is classified as a dwarf planet.
