Stopping White Genocide: An Israeli View

We have to remember that the criminal globalist elite and their assistants in politics, police, and media represent a very tiny minority in the population of the West and that they are dependent on White society’s cooperation for their control. Once large segments of white society stop supporting the genocidal system, the system will come crashing down. The EU will collapse as was the case in the former Soviet Union and the Eastern Block countries. 

Once EU control is over, each nation would revert back to its national and ethnic independence in which case the much-needed process of repatriation of the non-white alien populations in Europe can begin.

PREPARING FOR A POSSIBLE CIVIL WAR

Ordinary ethnic European citizens in Western Europe and other westerners worldwide should form Militias and find ways to arm themselves for any upcoming civil war, either by buying weapons in the Black market or importing weapons from the relatively “free” Eastern European nations, especially from Russia. The three branches of the Aryan Race (Germanic, Celtic and Slavic) must unite as brothers and sisters for the survival of the European peoples. Only by unity can the ethnic Europeans win.

prayer.jpgCUTTING WELFARE, ECONOMIC LIFELINE TO ALIENS & REPATRIATION

The non-Europeans “immigrating” (i.e. invading) into Europe are NOT “refugees” (Even if they were, they have no justification being in Europe). These are mainly economic migrants along with few Islamic Jihadists who seek to spread Islam into the West. With the help of the real enemy (i.e. Globalists, Liberals, Cabalist Jews, Marxists, and traitors) these non-white invaders seek to exploit and displace Europeans, take their women and take over their lands eventually, wiping out the native European populations. These invaders want to achieve all that with the help of the whites’ tax money and count on white naivete to achieve their territorial aims. Therefore any economic means of existing and breeding in Europe must be taken away from them.

Once their economic lifeline is cut, they won’t have any other choice but to return in mass to their ancestral homelands – where they belong. Those who voluntary remove themselves will be given any assistance, including financial support to move (recent arrivals will not be included in that.)

BRINGING THE TRAITORS TO JUSTICE

Merkel-684723.jpgThose who are directly involved in the promotion of the genocide against the ethnic Europeans, either by allowing the invasion into Europe or by turning a blind eye on migrant invasion and criminal behaviors, should be brought before a national tribunal and publicly punished either by the death penalty or by imprisonment for their entire lives.

Those of the establishment (Politicians, Police, Media) who aren’t directly involved in the crimes against the White race but had served the system in one way or another, should also be punished by denying them any right to be employed in any public service (i.e. Police, Military, Government services etc) or engage in any political activity in the future including the right to vote.

Stopping people like Jordan Peterson from causing ‘offence’ is the road to dystopia

jordan peterson cathy newman

    

Cathy Newman’s debate on Channel 4 with the cultural critic exemplifies free speech and citizen engagement. We need more of that, not less

For a vivid parable of what is wrong with contemporary discourse and culture – and of what could be right – look no further than last week’s Channel 4 News interview of Jordan Peterson, by Cathy Newman. At the time of writing, her half-hour grilling of the Toronto University professor of psychology has clocked up more than 2.3m views on YouTube, and provoked a cacophonous response across social media. So shamefully abusive have many of the attacks on Newman been that Channel 4 announced on Friday that it had called in security specialists.

As the digital temperature rose, Peterson quite rightly intervened on Twitter to stop the abuse: “If you’re threatening her, stop. Try to be civilized in your criticism.” It is unconscionable that a journalist doing her job should be threatened as Newman has been by “alt-right” idiots, with their pathetic Pepe the frog symbol, juvenile memes and claims that their adversaries have been “rekt”.

The onslaught has also eclipsed the content of a genuinely illuminating exchange. Newman is one of the best broadcasters in the business. Peterson is one of the most eclectic and stimulating public intellectuals at large today, fearless and impassioned in his philosophical inquiries, his application of clinical psychology to sensitive social dilemmas, and his critique of postmodernism and neo-Marxism in academia. His opinions are not to everyone’s taste, and his new book, 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos – which I greatly enjoyed – has infuriated others. But so what?

Though it is unfair to pigeonhole two such intelligent people, the conversation between Peterson and Newman, distilled to its essentials, was an argument between classical liberal ideas and modern identity politics. Peterson made his case with reference to individual characteristics and attributes; Newman challenged him to consider the structural disadvantages facing, say, women in the workplace or transgender students.

Do watch the whole thing. It is absolutely not the one-sided rout of Newman that the far right alleges. On equal pay, I thought she had the psychologist on the ropes more than once. On the right to offend, Peterson was on stronger ground. “In order to be able to think, you have to risk being offensive,” he said. “I mean, look at the conversation we’re having right now. You’re certainly willing to risk offending me in the pursuit of truth … And that is what you should do … More power to you, as far as I concerned.”

It is much to Newman’s credit that, 23 minutes in, she drew breath, paused and considered her position. We say that we want our interviewers to be less pugnacious and more thoughtful – and yet we pillory them when they have the guts to be contemplative on air. There are plenty of people who think that Peterson has no place on a mainstream news programme, or even in academic life. The far right, on the other hand, believes that Newman personifies an elitist media caste that is obstructing a great populist revolution. Both groups are ridiculous, and spectacularly ignorant of what constitutes a progressive civilisation. They reduce human interaction to tedious name-calling between the “woke” and the “red-pilled”, awake to the truth of reality.

It cannot be said too often that the first amendment to the United States constitution was adopted with the explicit purpose of protecting minority opinion. Though we have no such jurisprudential protection in Britain, and we – like most democratic societies – curtail speech that is libellous, incites imminent violence or whips up racial hatred, our inherited presumption in favour of free expression is more important than ever. A pluralistic, diverse society needs more free speech, not less. It needs fewer safe spaces and bans, and more civility and resilience.

Now, I know what some of you are thinking: what right does a white, middle-class, straight, cis male who turns 50 this week have to say anything about this? And the answer is: I say what I like, within the law, and so do you.

Object that “speech is violence”, and I reply: tell that to the 262 reporters who, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists, were imprisoned last year – a record high. It has become fashionable to claim that the wrong kind of words can cause damage to our “neural circuitry”. To which I say – really? Are we really going down the road where speech is included in the same category as fists and batons? Because once you allow that philosophical elision, you essentially ditch the Enlightenment – which, speaking for myself, I still find quite handy to have about the place.

Of all the delusions that grip our fractious era, one of the worst is the confident belief that greater restriction of speech will necessarily serve progressive ends. I see no logic in that whatsoever. As Peterson warns, everyone finds something objectionable or upsetting. It would be a moment of maximum peril if the primary test applied to expression became its capacity to offend. Why assume that those setting the rules would necessarily support the powerless or the disenfranchised? The injunction “You can’t say that” leads just as plausibly to Margaret Atwood’s Gilead or to Oceania.

To be a citizen is to engage, and the Newman-Peterson interview is a model of that engagement. Unless you believe that history has a self-evident direction – and it really doesn’t – you must accept that almost all progress is achieved by the hard grind of negotiation, tough debate and busy pluralism. The aphasia of “no-platform” and the bedlam of the digital mob add nothing to the mix. To quote the great African-American scholar Henry Louis Gates: let them talk.

70+ Kids ‘Missing’ from State Foster Care & No One’s Stopping It

A shocking report out of Kansas highlights an extreme disconnect between government — the Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF), which oversees foster care in the state, and the private foster care contractors that the state utilizes to place foster children and oversee their direct placement within foster homes.

There are at least 70 missing foster kids missing in Kansas, according to information provided by foster care contractors during a legislative oversight panel hearing this week. The information was provided as part of a response to questions related to the case of three missing sisters – ages 12, 14 and 15 – who went missing in August, and police believe ran away.

KVC Kansas, one of the foster care contractors, said it has roughly 38 missing children. The other company, Saint Francis Community Services, said 36 in its system are missing, according to KAKE.

Sen. Laura Kelly told the Child Welfare System Task Force that she was “flabbergasted” after contacting the Kansas DCF about the sisters’ disappearance from a northeast Kansas foster home – after incredibly, Secretary of Kansas DCF, Phyllis Gilmore, told Sen. Kelly that they knew nothing about the missing girls.

Gilmore admitted not knowing about the case, Kelly said, adding that the Gilmore is not simply the head of Kansas DCF, but, also “custodian of these children and she should have known.”

Although legislators expressed dismay over the missing foster kids, Chad Anderson, chief clinical officer at KVC Kansas, told the task force that the number of missing kids in Kansas represented about 1 percent of the foster care population – which is on par with the national average.

Anderson acknowledged that private contractors were not fulfilling their obligations as “custodian(s)” of the foster kids.

“I don’t know that we as contractors have shared as much in terms of missing youth and the day to day as we probably should,” Anderson said.

According to a report by TIME:

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports that during the federal government’s 2015 fiscal year, about 4,600 children in foster care were listed as runaways, or 1.1 percent of the nearly 428,000 total. Kansas had almost 7,100 children in foster care in August, so the number of those missing is about 1 percent.

Gilmore said that while she couldn’t comment on the missing sisters’, in many cases, foster children simply go back to their own biological families or with other people they have a significant relationship.

“So it isn’t always a tragedy, but some certainly can be and that’s why we have to take it all very seriously,” Gilmore said, according to KAKE. Sen. Kelly disagreed with her assessment, noting “that’s not good” since they were initially removed from the home for a serious reason.

Chairman of the task force, Rep. Steve Alford, said after the meeting he wasn’t really surprised and noted the broken nature of the foster system.

“There’s a break between DCF and the contracting,” Rep. Alford said. “Once the children … (go from the court) into the possession of the secretary, she hands them off to the contractors and it’s their responsibility, you know, it’s kind of like out of sight, out of mind in a lot of aspects.”

The Child Welfare System Task Force was set up in 2016 as a means of trying to make the agency more effective in handling abuse and neglect cases, and in protecting children.

Hopefully, the fact that task force chairman Alford clearly recognizes the systemic failure of the foster care system will precipitate a change in daily operations and protocols. There should be no breakdown in communication between the state (DCF), and their hired proxies in the private foster care industry when it comes to a missing child.

The fact that vulnerable kids are being treated with an “out of sight, out of mind” attitude speaks to the systemic failure within Kansas’ state-private foster care system.

If these kids are slipping through the cracks, and virtually nobody in a position of stewardship seems to take responsibility or care, is the system really built to help these kids at all — or is it simply another case of crony capitalism, similar to the private prison industry?

‘Out of Sight, Out of Mind’: 70+ Kids ‘Missing’ from State Foster Care & No One’s Stopping It

Child Sex Trafficking in the US is Exploding, Govt Admits They Aren’t Stopping It

traffickingtrafficking

A recent report on the number of sexually exploited children in Florida gives insight into a horrific world that is often ignored by the media, and that rarely holds millionaires, politicians and even local officials accountable for their involvement.

A report from the Florida legislature’s Office of Program Policy Analysis & Government Accountability concluded that the state’s Department of Children and Family (DCF) and its lead agencies “have not resolved issues related to serving commercially sexually exploited children.”

The report found that in 2016, 356 verified commercially sexually exploited child victims were identified, as opposed to 264 identified in 2015. It noted that many of the victims who were identified earlier were, “both children in child welfare dependency and those living in the community with family—have since been re-victimized, involved with the criminal justice system, or only attended school intermittently.”

“During 2016, DCF’s Florida Abuse Hotline received 2,013 reports alleging the CSE of children, which is a 57% increase over the 2015 reports. Child protective investigators investigated 1,386 (or 69%) of those reports. Counties with the highest number of CSE reports include Miami-Dade (248), Broward (232), Orange (150), and Hillsborough (144). DCF hotline staff did not refer cases for investigation if the allegation did not rise to the level of reasonable (74%), there were no means to locate the victim (11%), or the alleged perpetrator was not the child’s caregiver (8%). Of the reports that were referred for investigation, most came from DJJ, the Department of Corrections, or criminal justice personnel (20%) and law enforcement (15%).”

In 2016, the National Human Trafficking Hotline received reports of 7,572 human trafficking cases, which was a substantial increase from 5,544 cases in 2015 and 5,042 cases in 2014. Florida ranked third on the list with 550 cases, behind Texas with 670 cases and California with 1,323 cases.

Out of the 7,572 human trafficking cases reported in the United States in 2016, the majority or 5,551 were “sex trafficking” cases, and 2,387 of the reported victims were minors.

The report on child sex trafficking in Florida suggested that the increase in victims was due to the process DCF and the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) use to “select children to screen as well as the screening tool itself may limit accurate identification of CSE child victims.”

The report also noted that 62 percent of the children who were labeled as commercially sexually exported remained “in the community and are referred to voluntary, local services.” As a result, “no data is readily available on whether the children use these services.”

The Free Thought Project has provided extensive coverage of the sex trafficking epidemic in the U.S., especially in relation to minors who become victims after they are kidnapped from their homes and placed in foster care.

In April, two pastors who were foster care advocates were arrested for running a child sex ring in Ohio. The pastors, who had influence on their county’s Child Service’s Board of Trustees, were charged with “recruiting, enticing and transporting people the men knew were under 18 to engage in sex acts for pay.” The trafficking was ongoing for at least three years, and initially began with a 14-year-old girl.

In June, a lawsuit was filed in the case of a 5-year-old girl who was given to the leader of a child sex ring in Arizona. She was taken from her mother who was battling an addiction with substance abuse, and she was put in the custody of a pedophile who sexually abused her, tortured her, and ultimately left her fighting for her life.

The recent report from Florida is another reminder that child sex trafficking is a horrific element of the human trafficking epidemic that has been ongoing and increasing in the United States. While government involvement has always been an element, it has yet to put a stop to the increasing number of children who are subjected to life-altering abuse on a daily basis.

Tory MPs in talks with Labour about stopping Theresa May’s ‘hard Brexit’

Labour MP Stephen Kinnock said there was a “growing recognition” of the need for Britain to embrace a Norway-style arrangement to head off the threat of severe economic damage.

He is seeking support for Britain remaining within the European Economic Area (EEA) after Brexit and, therefore, the EU single market, for a “time-bound period.”

“I have been reaching out with a particular proposal to 15 Conservative MPs so far,” Kinnock told the Telegraph.

“There is a growing recognition now in the economy that getting the right transition deal is now the top priority.

“What we need to do is to form a coalition of common sense to secure in particular a sensible pragmatic transition deal, which in my opinion should be based on the EEA. It is a sensible halfway house to give our economy the certainty it so desperately needs.”

Prime Minister Theresa May has made ending free movement her ‘red line’ in the Brexit negotiations, arguing that the public clearly voted to curb EU immigration. But a growing number of MPs argue it is possible to prevent people coming to Britain without jobs to go to without breaching EU rules on free movement.

Given May’s precarious working majority of just 12, a group of 15 rebel Tories could be sufficient to defeat the Tories in any Commons vote.

That, however, would require Labour to shift its Brexit policy. Currently the policy is to keep the “benefits” of membership of the single market, without explaining how.

The talks come as the government published legislation which will repatriate thousands of Brussels powers to London after Britain leaves the EU in March 2019.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said his party will not support the bill in its current form.

He is demanding that the charter be fully incorporated into UK law, ensuring Britain’s worker rights match the EU’s and demanding a change to the so-called ‘Henry VIII powers,’ which give the government the power to change legislation without full parliamentary scrutiny.

“The government does not have a majority in Parliament, it does not have a mandate to do what it likes in Parliament. Parliament must be consulted and be able to decide on these issues.”

US Laws Have Legalized Pedophilia With Children As Young as 10 Yrs Old And No One is Stopping It

Girls as young as ten are among more than 200,000 children wed to adults in the United States in just the past 15 years, as — despite minimum requirements a person reach the age of 18, or legal adulthood, nationally — a smattering of locations have preserved loopholes legally permitting child marriage.

Alarmingly, the number of children married away to fully mature adults could be much higher than the already-startling number — ten states provide only fragmentary statistics, or none at all.

And the loopholes don’t exist solely in theory — adults across the U.S. have actively opportuned the law to marry kids — even amid a decline in the number of marriages, overall.

To wit, three 10-year-old girls and an 11-year-old boy were among the hundreds of thousands of children and minors the system somehow permitted adults to lock into marriage — despite their bodies and minds not yet being fully developed.

“At least 207,468 minors married in the US between 2000 and 2015, according to data compiled by Unchained At Last, a group campaigning to abolish child marriage, and investigative documentary series Frontline,” The Independent reports.

Exemptions from the national marriage minimum age of 18 exist for circumstances like pregnancy and parental consent — in every state in the country.

However, record-keeping remains inconsistent across the country, and details regarding the nature of child marriages — if unintended pregnancy made the union tenable, for instance — usually aren’t included.

Indeed, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie — citing conditions such as religious customs — bore the brunt of furious criticism recently for refusing to sign into law restrictions barring children under the age of 18 from tying the knot or entering a civil unions.

“I agree that protecting the wellbeing, dignity, and freedom of minors is vital,” Christie placated an irate populace, upon refusing to codify the law in early May, “but the severe bar this bill creates is not necessary to address the concerns voiced by the bill’s proponents and does not comport with the sensibilities and, in some cases, the religious customs, of the people of this State.”

Unchained At Last Founder and Executive Director Fraidy Reiss — herself, an albeit older victim of forced marriage — told Frontline that, upon first obtaining child marriage statistics for New Jersey, where her organization is based,

“I got that spreadsheet from the state health department, I was literally shaking.”

Data for the state revealed just under 3,500 youth — largely 16- and 17-year-olds — wed adults between 1995 and 2012.

“That number was so much higher than I had thought it would be,” Reiss told the PBS program. “Then, the fact that the children were as young as 13 and the fact that it was mostly girls married to adult men.”

Across the U.S., insufficient data still show the number of marriages involving minors and children dropped by 61 percent in the decade between 2000 and 2010 — but even that figure could be wildly inaccurate without further information readily available.

Lest doubt take root, these figures haven’t been bloated by an excess of youth permitted to marry other youth — fully 86 percent of marriages analyzed with available data involved adults wedding kids under 18.

Frontline reports,

“The youngest children to marry were three 10-year-old girls in Tennessee in 2001, who were married to men ages 24, 25 and 31, according to state data. The youngest groom was an 11-year-old boy, also in Tennessee, who married a 27-year-old woman in 2006.

“Children as young as 12 were granted marriage licenses in Alaska, Louisiana, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

“Thirteen-year-olds were given the green light to marry in Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Washington.”

Around the United States, adults — as old as the 74-year-old Alabama man, whose bride was six decades his junior — ostensibly committed to lifetime relationships with three 10-year-olds, two 11-year-olds, ten 12-year-olds, fifty-one 13-year-olds, and 985 children aged 14.

Of course, individual states’ legal loopholes don’t necessarily jibe with federal mandates pertaining to marriageable age — not to mention the gross breach of social mores and protections for children.

Frontline suggests this odd and astonishing discrepancy — if not outright hypocrisy — leaves cavernous gaps in consistency of law:

“Most states set the age of sexual consent between 16 and 18. A person can be charged with sexual abuse or statutory rape for having sex with a minor. Yet, we found numerous examples of children who were given marriage licenses before they could legally consent to sex. These marriages were almost always approved by court clerks and judges.”

Advocates working to close gaping loopholes caution that age cannot necessarily be the primary indicator of a distressing betrothal.

“A large age difference is an automatic red flag, but a small age difference is not an automatic green flag,” attorney Jeanne Smoot, of the Tahirih Justice Center, which works to eradicate all marriages involving minors, told Frontline, adding authorities rarely pursue charges against adults in marriages to kids, as “the same acts that would be statutory rape outside of marriage are made lawful within.”

Most states allowing adults to take a child spouse require the consent of one or both parents, permission from a judge, or some combination thereof — however, there is a rather astonishing footnote to this underbelly of marriage and child love in the United States.

Frontline notes,

“In 26 states, there’s no minimum marriage age, according to the Tahirih Justice Center. Children in those states can get married at any age if certain conditions are met.”

WATCH: Head of DHS Just Admitted Drug War is a ‘Waste of Time’ at Stopping Drug Crisis

homelandhomeland

The “War on Drugs” has failed so miserably, that now even the head of the Department of Homeland Security is admitting that it is won’t stop the current drug crisis.

DHS Secretary John Kelly testified before Congress on the Trump Administration’s 2018 Homeland Security budget request on Tuesday. He told Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) he believes the current methods used by the United States are a “complete waste of time,” given that fact that there is still such a high demand for the same drugs the U.S. is trying to eliminate.

“If we don’t reduce the drug demand in the United States for heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamine, this is all a complete waste of time,” Kelly said. “The bad news for Mexico and the southwest border is, largely because of our drug demand, an incredibly efficient network has developed that stretches, frankly, from around the world, goes through the Western Hemisphere … into the United States.”

Kelly said he believes it is not up to law enforcement to solve the problem. He believes it is up to Hollywood, professional athletes, and even politicians, to influence society to turn to a more holistic approach.

“We’ve got to take a much more holistic approach to this [drug problem], demand reduction, rehabilitation,” Kelly said. “Certainly law enforcement plays a role in the homeland. The southwest border plays a role.

Kelly told Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.) that his primary strategy revolves around restrictions on “precursor drugs.”

“The United States wants to try to kill themselves with methamphetamine, heck, we can do it for them,” Kelly said. “Congressional action in terms of restricting the precursors—that’s primarily, in my view, the solution to the problem.”

While Kelly has not pushed for decriminalizing all drugs, or even specifically ending marijuana prohibition, his comments do set him apart from other prominent figures in the Trump Administration.

Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price has a reputation for being one of the most anti-marijuana members of Congress. His voting record includes evidence that he is a vocal advocate for the federal government interfering with state laws on marijuana legalization, and that he is against Veterans Affairs doctors having the right to recommend medical marijuana to veterans who might benefit from it.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is also a strong advocate for the federal government increasing the “War on Drugs,” despite its track record. He even went as far as to say that “good people don’t smoke marijuana” during a Senate hearing in April 2016.

“I can’t tell you how concerning it is for me, emotionally and personally, to see the possibility that we will reverse the progress that we’ve made,” Sessions said. “It was the prevention movement that really was so positive, and it led to this decline. The creating of knowledge that this drug is dangerous, it cannot be played with, it is not funny, it’s not something to laugh about, and trying to send that message with clarity, that good people don’t smoke marijuana.”

Kelly made headlines in April, when he told Meet The Press that he believes filling prisons with nonviolent offenders arrested on drug charges won’t solve the drug crisis.

“The solution is not arresting a lot of users,” Kelly said. “The solution is a comprehensive drug demand reduction program in the United States that involves every man and woman of goodwill. And then rehabilitation.”

Kelly also said marijuana, which is listed as a Schedule 1 drug in the U.S., is not a factor. He noted that the use of drugs such as meth, heroin and cocaine led to over 52,000 deaths in 2015.

“Marijuana is not a factor in the drug war,” Kelly said. “Drug consumption in the United States is the problem, just cocaine alone when you consider the massive amounts of profit that come out of the United States.”
