Merkel Talks Tough but Still Affirms “Right to Asylum”

Reuters is claiming that Angela Merkel is changing her stance on immigration. Here’s an excerpt: Merkel’s remarks on Saturday were in stark contrast to her earlier optimism about the influx to Germany, which has taken in far more migrants than any other European country. Her “we can do it” slogan irritated many Germans, uneasy about the mass arrival. “The right to asylum can be lost if someone is convicted, on probation or jailed,” Merkel said after a meeting of the leadership of her Christian Read more […]

Not Only Germany: Helsinki, Finland, Hit with “Unprecedented Sex Harassment”

At Yahoo News there is a headline: “Unprecedented sex harassment in Helsinki at New Year: police.” Finnish police reported Thursday an unusually high level of sexual harassment in Helsinki on New Year’s Eve and said they had been tipped off about plans by groups of asylum seekers to sexually harass women. Helsinki deputy police chief Ilkka Koskimaki told AFP: “There hasn’t been this kind of harassment on previous New Year’s Eves or other occasions for that matter… This is a completely new phenomenon Read more […]

When We Have an Immigrant Flash Mob, Will the Media Report It?

I have written a couple of times now about the crimes perpetrated in Cologne and elsewhere in Germany. Yesterday I saw this new report from the National Post which spelled out some aspects of what happened: “Cologne police report describes ‘chaotic and shameful’ mass sex attack.” Police in Cologne, Germany, were overwhelmed by groups of men attacking women in the city center on New Year’s Eve, according to a leaked report. An unidentified senior official who wrote the report for Germany’s Read more […]

Opposition to Sexual Assaults Brings Out Liberal Insanity

I recently wrote that coordinated sexual assaults and robberies in Germany have stirred up opposition to immigration. Now it seems that the opposition has provoked all sorts of insanity from left-liberals. The New York Times reports, “Cologne Mayor’s ‘Arm’s Length’ Advice on Sexual Attacks Stirs Outcry.” The mayor of Cologne has inflamed a debate in Germany about migrants and sexual harassment by suggesting that women can protect themselves from men on the streets by keeping them more Read more […]

Coordinated Sexual Assaults and Robberies in Germany Stir Up Opposition to Immigration

This headline from AFP isn’t that surprising, sadly: “New Year’s sex assaults stoke German migrant debate.” German leaders expressed shock over dozens of apparently coordinated sexual assaults against women on New Year’s Eve in the western city of Cologne blamed on “Arab-looking men,” but warned against anti-migrant scapegoating. Chancellor Angela Merkel called for a thorough investigation of the “repugnant” attacks, ranging from groping to at least one reported rape, allegedly committed in a large Read more […]

Merkel Preaches “Solidarity,” which Means Submission to Her “Refugee” Policy

One of the hints that the state is a religion is that politicians operate as preachers. Thus, Europe Online Magazine headlines, “Merkel urges German unity on migration crisis in New Year’s address.” The most important issue confronting Germany in 2016 is the nation‘s “solidarity” in dealing with the refugee crisis, Chancellor Angela Merkel will say in her New Year‘s address to the nation on Thursday. “It is important that we not let ourselves be divided – not among generations, and not among Read more […]

German Police Under-Reporting Muslim Crimes

While Belgium is headed toward becoming a Muslim country, and Swedes are having to deal with taxpayer supported immigrants and immigrant crime, the police in Germany are reportedly covering up foreign crimes. Or so the Daily Mail indicates in their headline: “Police in Germany are covering up the extent of crime committed by migrants, claim Bild… as country is revealed to have taken in 1.1 MILLION people during 2015.” German officials have ordered a cover-up of crimes committed by migrants Read more […]

German Voters Moving Rightward Due to Muslim Immigration

The political establishment is losing the confidence of German voters as they watch their country being stressed by foreigners. A recent story in the Telegraph makes inquiring minds wonder if the way the country is receiving immigrants is going to substantially change the behavior of German voters: “Migrant dispute between conservative parties ‘pushing Germans to far-Right'” Disputes between Germany’s two ruling conservative parties over the migrant crisis is jeopardising the government’s ability Read more […]

German Rapes Show Why Free Immigration is Not Always a Good Thing

German rapes and forced prostitutions are a growing legacy of the migrant crisis in that country. Here are a few bullet points from this article at the Gatestone Institute, “Germany: Migrants’ Rape Epidemic.” A 13-year-old Muslim girl was raped by another asylum seeker at a refugee facility in Detmold, a city in west-central Germany. The girl and her mother reportedly fled their homeland to escape a culture of sexual violence. Approximately 80% of the refugees/migrants at the shelter Read more […]

Muslims Converting to Christianity In Germany: Is It Genuine?

Maybe it doesn’t matter if the many Muslims converting to Christianity are doing it for worldly reasons. This story may show us that God, despite all the sin and unbelief in the world, may be having mercy on us: “At a Berlin church, Muslim refugees converting in droves.” Mohammed Ali Zonoobi bends his head as the priest pours holy water over his black hair. “Will you break away from Satan and his evil deeds?” pastor Gottfried Martens asks the Iranian refugee. “Will you break away from Islam?” “Yes,” Read more […]

Is Jeb Bush Campaigning in Europe? Why?

Shouldn’t we be reading stories about Jeb Bush campaigning in the United States? Why are we hearing about what Germans think about him? Since he is running to be this nation’s President, I have been expecting to see Jeb Bush campaigning in… this nation. But then I saw this headline at Politico.com: “Germans conflicted about the Bush brand.” Jeb Bush, kicking off a six-day European tour, will pay tribute on Tuesday to America’s alliance with Western Europe, calling it “as relevant Read more […]

Demographic Implosion in Japan Surpassed by Germany

While Japan has been suffering through a demographic implosion, Germany may be catching up to them. I’ve posted before about Japan’s dire decline in population. People there are simply not reproducing enough. But now it seems Germany is catching up. That, at least, is what Bloomberg Business is reporting: “No Country for Young Folk? Germany Has Lowest Birthrate.” Move over Japan. Germany now has the world’s lowest birthrate, and its economy is poised to suffer as a result. Germany Read more […]
