Germany: Populist AfD calls for aid for local breweries and inns

Germany’s Eurosceptic Alternative for Germany (AfD) party is calling for the government to provide aid to the country’s local breweries and inns, many of which are threatened with disaster because of the ongoing lockdown in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown.

Germany, which has a long brewing tradition, is home to many breweries, some of which have been in existence for centuries. And although there had been a boom in small breweries in recent years due to the explosive popularity of craft beers around the world, the sudden shock of a long-term lockdown is now threatening their very existence, as previously reported by Voice of Europe. Pubs and restaurants have all been closed, public events where beer is served have been cancelled, and exports have decreased as a result of border closings.

In response, the AfD is saying that the government must provide financial aid to breweries and inns that does not need to be repaid. “Loans and deferrals do not help them,” Stephan Protschka, an AfD MP from Bavaria, said in a report by Junge Freiheit …. Continue reading >>>

European Union Approves Bugs For Human Consumption

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

The European Union’s Food Safety Authority has approved the sale of bugs as “novel food,” meaning that they are likely to be mass produced for human consumption throughout the continent by the end of the year.

Can’t wait.

“These have a good chance of being given the green light in the coming few weeks,” the secretary-general of the International Platform of Insects for Food and Feed, Christophe Derrien, told The Guardian.

Since 1997, the EU has required a “novel food” classification to allow the sale of products that had no history of being consumed by humans, meaning that the sale of bugs has been banned in countries like Spain, France and Italy for over two decades.

However, with the new approval, mass production of bug-based food is set to ramp up later this year. This means that locusts, crickets, grasshoppers, and mealworms may all appear on supermarket shelves by the autumn.

Christophe Derrien is looking forward to the sale of bugs as both a stand alone food and incorporated into existing products, arguing that they are a great source of protein and the production of bug food doesn’t harm the planet... Continue reading

NHS Hiring ‘Diversity & Inclusion’ Managers

In the midst of the Coronavirus crisis, the Bristol & Weston NHS Foundation Trust is hiring a new ‘Diversity and Inclusion Manager’. The lucky applicant will play a vital role in “developing and delivering a key programme of work to drive the Trust’s ambition and vision of being committed to inclusion in everything we do.” Wokery is not the most important priority during a pandemic…

They’ll be very lucky indeed, because the salary for the role starts at £44,606 to £50,819 a year. That’s money that could cover the wages of two new nurses. What’s the NHS playing at? from Guido Fawkes

French Official Says Quarantine Should Not be Enforced in Migrant Areas to Avoid Riots

A top government official in France has admitted that draconian lockdown measures being imposed on the rest of the population shouldn’t be implemented in the country’s migrant-heavy ghettos in order to prevent riots.

In a letter leaked to magazine Le Canard Enchaine, French Secretary of State to the Ministry of the Interior Laurent Nunez advises, “It is not a priority to enforce closings in certain neighborhoods and to stop gatherings.”

In a separate video conference call, Nunez told other officials that restricting movement and shutting down shops in France’s infamous banlieues risks igniting violent social disorder if enforced too rigorously.

A regional defense zone prefect who was in on the call agreed that businesses that had been closed down in other areas of France should remain open in poorer neighborhoods in order to help with “social mediation.”

“This undermining of the laws that Macron declared as essential, this clear disregard for the population as a whole, comes at a time when police, ambulance and firefighters face record levels of hostility when they venture into the suburbs where gangs set cars on fire then attack them when they arrive to help,” writes Damian Wilson for Summit News… Continue reading

Former Greek Minister Varoufakis Exposes EU Failure On Coronavirus

As uncertainty continues over how best to deal with the coronavirus pandemic and the crisis deepens throughout Europe, economist and former Financial Minister in Greece’s short lived, Eurosceptic Syriza government Yanis Varoufakis delivered an incisive critique of how utterly wrongheaded the EU’s response to the spread of the pandemic has been.

In a video posted on his YouTube channel DiEM25 last week, Varoufakis said: “The other day there was a eurogroup meeting. That is a meeting of the European Union’s finance ministers of the countries that are using the euro.

“They decided that coronavirus poses a clear and present danger of a massive recession in Europe. They said it is a highly significant threat to European economies, So much so that the urgency was so great that they decided to do absolutely nothing.

“They decided they are going to monitor the situation and watch.”

Mr Varoufakis noted: “The eurogroup, the EU and in particular the eurozone are terribly structured.

“They are on autopilot.

“They simply follow particular rules that cannot be followed without racking our economies. It is a reflection of a system that has been created in order to prevent governments from acting on behalf of society.

“That is if you want the ‘neo-liberal kernel inside Europe’.”

Mr Varoufakis added: “They are talking about doing whatever it takes within the fiscal compact, which means nothing because the fiscal compact is like an iron cage austerity from which you then cannot escape.

“And you need to escape from an iron cage of austerity if you are going to do anything about the green transition or about dealing with with the wholesale recession that the coronavirus is going to bring again to Europe.

“A Europe that has fallen behind the rest of the world as a result of such stringent austerity package that increased in 2010 and spread out like a cancer out of control throughout the European Union.”

In an interview on Sky News this morning, the former Governor of the Bank of England Lord Mervyn King echoed Mr Varoufakis’ claims and noted that Britain should be very grateful it is not in the eurozone right now.

He said: “What we can take comfort from here I think is that the Bank of England and the Government are working very closely together.

“I think you can see that around the world nations are responding to this. People have to accept that tremendous sacrifices are made for other people. And the community in which we do that most naturally is the nation state.

“That is not something they have created in the euro area.

“They failed to create a fiscal union.

“Now, someone will hope that the crisis we are facing will lead them to do that but they have not got the political legitimacy to do that.

“We should be really grateful that we are not in the euro area and that we can coordinate our responses directly between Central Bank and Government here in Britain.”

Yannis Varoufakis has been a long time critic of the European Hierarchy in Brussels and was one of the few politicians in member states in the single currency system (The Eurozone”) to try to stand up to the central bureaucracy and defend the interests of the Greek nation’s citizens who had elected him. The reponse from The Bastards of Brussels was to force Varoufakis out of office and out of politics and to oust the left of centre, Eurosceptoc, Syriza paty government and install a government of appointees pledged to implement such draconian austerity measures on Greece, the nation was driven back to third world levels of poverty.

US John Hopkins University Prof Says Don’t Believe Corona Virus Numbers

Authored by Michael Snyder via The End of The American Dream blog,

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to explode all over the globe, and authorities are warning that it is going to continue to get worse.

The number of confirmed cases outside of China roughly tripled once again this week, and if this outbreak continues to escalate at this pace there will be more than a million confirmed cases in less than a month.  But as bad as the official numbers are, the truth is that there are a whole lot more people walking around out there that have caught the virus but have not been tested.  In fact, a medical professor at Johns Hopkins University named Marty Makary believes that there are “probably 25 to 50 people who have the virus for every one person who is confirmed”

Don’t believe the numbers when you see, even on our Johns Hopkins website, that 1,600 Americans have the virus,” he said.

“No, that means 1,600 got the test, tested positive. There are probably 25 to 50 people who have the virus for every one person who is confirmed.

He added:

“I think we have between 50,000 and half a million cases right now walking around in the United States.”

If he is correct, and considering how easily this virus spreads from person to person, it isn’t going to be too long before this virus is everywhere, as Makary concluded:

“…we’re about to experience the worst public health epidemic since polio”

Other health experts are also warning that the number of Americans that have become infected is already extremely high.  As I pointed out yesterday, Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton is convinced that the number of victims in her state is now above 100,000

Ohio health officials announced Thursday that the state has five known cases of the coronavirus, but one expert said that the number is likely much higher and estimated 100,000 undiagnosed cases.

Dr. Amy Acton, the director of the state’s health department, told reporters that the virus is “among us, but we can’t see it yet,” WBRB reported.

But of course what we have seen so far could just be the tip of the iceberg.

According to the New York Times, the CDC is projecting that up to 214 million Americans could eventually become infected…

Between 160 million and 214 million people in the United States could be infected over the course of the epidemic, according to one projection. That could last months or even over a year, with infections concentrated in shorter periods, staggered across time in different communities, experts said. As many as 200,000 to 1.7 million people could die.

Can you imagine how overwhelmed our healthcare system will be if that actually happens?

*******************************

And supposing this is repeated her in the UK (and there is no reason to believe it isn’t,) can you imagine the strain on the NHS, already struggling to cope with the demands placed on it due largely to the stupidity of virtue signalling left wing and neo – liberal politicians who think we should offer ‘free’ healthcare to the world.

We still have no idea how long the pandemic will last. Some experts say it will burn itself out in a matter of months but that is pure speculation.  What if the virus mutates as quickly as ‘flu, for which we have to have a new vaccine each year, or lasts for three full like the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1919 to 1921 did?

As things standeu, European, the entire western world seems to be in the process of shutting up shop as fear of the coronavirus spreads like wildfire, but can the economies of developed nations withstand such a shock to the system.  Many people are going to be deathly afraid to go out in public for the foreseeable future because this virus is so easy to catch yet the global economy depends on us rushing round like gadflies, sending shipments of good flying round the world, hoppong on and off passenger jets and ignoring the natural barries that have slowed previous pandemics .

This virus could be on the next surface that you touch, it could be on the next hand that you shake, and there is even the possibility that you could breathe it in during the next breath that you take.

In spite of this Emmanuel Macron, the idiot who serves as President of France and Ursula Van Leyen, the wannabe tyrant who is president of the EU have called for national borders to stay open and no restrictions placed on the free movement of people. In typical EU style their thinking is driven by globalist ideology rather than pragmatism.

Hundreds attend protest against Fianna Fail/Fine Gael coalition in Dublin

A few weeks ago the Irish General Election returned an inconclusive result as many voters rejected the traditional power duopoly of Finaana Fail and Fine Gael, both pro – EU, globalist parties, in favour of anti EU, nationalist parties with Sinn Fein (the political wing of the IRA being the main beneficiary. We predicted then that a bid by Europhile Prime Minister Leo Varadkar to hold on to power by taking his Fine Gael party into coalitioon with their traditional rivals Finanna Fail was doomed and would finish Varadkar, a Brussels puppet, and possibly lead to Ireland following the UK out of the European Union.

It looks as if the first part of our prediction is about to be realised already.

from The Irish Daily Mirror

Hundreds attend protest against Fianna Fail/Fine Gael coalition in Dublin city centre

“We’re here to show that we don’t want a Fianna Fail/Fine Gael government’
Hundreds of people came out to call for real change and protest at the possibility of a Fianna Fail and Fine Gael coalition on Saturday. People Before Profit’s Brid Smith TD, Homeless Action Ireland and Extinction Rebellion were among the groups that gathered at the Garden of Remembrance in Dublin. Protesters, holding the banner “Stop the Fianna Fail-Fine Gael Stitch Up – March for Real Change” walked from Parnell Square to O’Connell Street.

Ms Smith said voters called for change in the recent General Election – not another Government led by Leo Varadkar’s Fine Gael or Micheal Martin’s Fianna Fail. Ahead of the demonstration, she added: “We’re calling it a stitch-up between Fianna Fail and Fine Gael and the reason we’re using that term is because the very clear sentiment of the recent election was not Fianna Fail or Fine Gael.

“They got roughly around 43% of the vote, which together is significant, but it doesn’t give them majority rights. “But the sentiment of the election is that we need real change – on housing, on health, on the cost of living, on reversing the pension age.”

Meanwhile, spokeswoman for Homeless Action Ireland Leah Daly said the wishes of half a million voters are being ignored. She was previously homeless with two of her children for two years, and forced to live in emergency shelter even though she was working for a private senior care company. Ms Daly added: “We’re here to show that we don’t want a Fianna Fail/Fine Gael government.  READ FULL ARTICLE >>>

Spain Arrests People Traffickers And Drug Smugglers Crossing From North Africa in Speedboats

by Arthur Quinnell, 7 March, 2020

Spanish police announced the arrest of 90 people suspected of being involed in an organised crime network that operated lucrative smuggling rackets that moved both people and drugs across The Strait Of Gibraltar from Africa to Europe.

The Civil Guard released a statement today stating that the smuggling network regularly moved people and drugs across the Strait from Ceuta, a Spanish enclave in northern Africa to The Costa del Sol in high powered RHIB (rigid hull inflatable boat) speedcraft of the type often used to move illegal immigrants from Libya to Italy or Turkey to Greece.

The Spanish national law enforcement agency said their investigators found evidence that 11 speed boats operated by the gang had carried a total of 269 people and over 10,000 kilograms of hashish from Africa to the Spanish mainland. The ring used radar systems and lookouts stationed along the coast to avoid detection, the police alleged. The advantage of the semi inflatable boats is they can operate in very shallow water.

The migrants moved by the racketeers were allegedly detained by the traffickers at a remote location in Spain until their families paid 5,000 euros ($5,600), a senior police officer said. The Civil Guard did not say when the arrests took place but revealed that another 39 people are under investigation in the case.

The police agency said officers involved in the operation against trafficking had so far confiscated over 10 tons of hashish, 26 boats, 29 vehicles, 250,000 euros ($282,000) in cash, and 12 firearms, during the investigation.

Ceuta is one of Spain’s two northern African enclave cities on the Mediterranean coast. Spain´s southern coast has become a major entry point for drugs and illegal immigrants into Europe since the mass migration crisis of 2015 when Italy, Greece and the Balkan States defied Brussels to tighten border controls. Since a far left government seized power in Spain, the Spanish government has taken a very lax line on preventing illegal immigrants posing as refugees and asylum seekers entering the EU though Spain’s leaky borders..

Le Pen Calls For Referendum To Stop “Submersion” Of France Via Mass Immigration

Marine Le Pen, leader of the French nationalist party Rassemblement National (National Rally) has called for a referendum on immigration policy to stop what she called the “submersion” of France via a “globalist” program of mass immigration.


Marine Le Pen

Speaking in a debate on problems caused by mass immigration and the growth of lawless, migrant dominated ghettos in French cities and towns, Le Pen told the French Parliament that the political establishment had betrayed French people and by overseeing a policy of mass immigration and the dilution of French identity at the expense of ordinary people.

Le Pen said the last 30 years of immigration laws were designed to be ineffective, allowing a virtual ‘open borders’ approach to immigration control which had resulted in  the current social problems. She said the policies had been “nothing more than political grandstanding.”

In another part of the speech she said the French people “recognise that uncontrolled immigration is a threat to their daily lives, to their way of life, and even, at times, a threat to their lives.”

Our country is experiencing a veritable submersion, yes a submersion, I dare to use that term, because it describes the reality of the unbroken wave that is crashing upon our cities, our towns, and now, because of your irresponsible policy of placing migrants in the rural areas, even the smallest villages,” said Le Pen.

She continued by  lambasting establishment politicians for trying to make discussion of immigration taboo and demonizing those who spoke out against uncontrolled immigration, saying a giant demographic displacement of people was taking place. In conclusion she accused the ruling duopoly of “treason” for failing to “defend their people.”

“But above all, without ever consulting the people, they organized the streams of legal migration and tolerated illegal immigration,” she added, saying this was driven by “the globalist ideology that guides them inexorably.” “The torrent of migration is destroying our welfare system, is making the entire penal system explode and is undermining the unity of the nation,” she added.

Le Pen also accused globalists of reducing man to his “economic dimension, as a producer and consumer, an interchangeable man, with no identity or cultural reference points, nothing but a cog in the wheel of global commerce.”

This is of course an almost perfect decription of the aims of Cultural Marxism as defined in the 1920 by members of the notorious Frankfurt School of political and economic academics.

Attacking President Macron and his lamentably inept administration for exacerbating the problem by attempting to deflect attention from their failures by virtue signalling, Le Pen dismissed the “debate” as a pointless “rehearsal for a high school play,” calling for a national referendum on stopping mass immigration.

“In this chamber a majority want this migration madness to continue. In France, a majority want this migration madness to stop,” she concluded.

Le Pen was heckled throughout the speech by pro-mass immigration, establishment politicians, but her words are likely to ignite still more unrest in France where months of strikes and disruption have destabilised the nation.

EU Borders at Breaking Point as Migrants Shipped to Frontier

This blog has always tried to point out to the lefties who screech about “open borders” that the European Union commitment to free movement of Labour only applies to citizens of EU member states moving withing the Union. They are closed minded and bigoted on the subject of course, “open borders” facilitating the movement of hundreds of millions of uneducated third world peasants to the developed nations is one of the sacred cows of their ideologically driven agenda and practical considerations like how do nations cope with the burden of feeding, housing and providing social benefits the extra, mostly unemployable people when its population is increased by 50% in a short time while the economy remains stagnant?

from Breitbart Europe

Tensions on Europe’s borders with Turkey are rising as thousands of migrants are brought to the frontier on unmarked buses and state-owned railways.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his country’s borders to Europe were open for migrants some days ago, ostensibly because his country could not cope with an increased flow of refugees from Idlib, Syria.

Yet the move follows years of threats made by Erdogan to punish Europe for not furnishing his Islamist government with money and political support by opening Turkey’s borders — behind which are 3.5 million or more migrants waiting to travel to the West.

Erdogan has repeatedly expressed frustration with Europe’s failure to fully back his military operations in the Syria to carve out a Turkish zone of control and prop up rebels linked to al-Qaeda, which has resulted in deadly clashes between his forces and the Russian-backed Syrian government and its Iranian and Iran-linked allies.

There are now thousands of migrants packed into the so-called no man’s land on the Greco-Turkish border, with the Greek authorities struggling to repel the reportedly mostly male migrants seeking to breach the European Union’s common external border.

Despite Erdogan’s suggestions that the migrants are recent refugees from Idlib, this does not appear to be the case, with the migrants coming from all over Africa, the Middle East, and South Asia.  Continue reading

German Economy Slumps, Key Indicators Fall, Underlines Eurozone Economic Decline

With zero growth in the German economy over the final quarter of 2019 as manufacturing remained in a slump and exports fell, the wisdom of Britain’s middle and working class voters choice to leave the failing European Union was vindicated again. The German figures highlight the many challenges facing the Eurozone, which is hamstrung because it consists of 19 different economies (eith of them economic basket cases,) all needing very different solutions.

German’s state statistics agency reported today there was zero growth in the fourth quarter and a mediocre 0.6 percent increase for the whole year. And that paltry figure has only been achieved with the help of financial jiggery pokery from the European Central Bank (ECB)

Germany´s troubles are central to the economic difficulties of the 19-country eurozone economy and the European Central Bank, which has for several years been trying mask the reality of flagging growth and inflation with negative interest rates and newly printed money. Germany has been a manufacturing and export powerhouse in recent years and has propped up the rest of the sigle currency zone, but with German manufacturing in the doldrums and exports rendered uncompetitive due to increased costs imposed by ineffective and pointless “green” policies imposed on member states by Brussels, those areas have been sluggish and only debt funded consumer spending has kept the country out of recession. But debt funded spending is only ever a short term solution.

Carsten Brzeski, chief economist at ING Germany, told a German Financial Newspaper, “In general, the German economy remains stuck between solid private consumption and a paralyzed manufacturing sector.”

Slowing global trade and the uncertainty caused by the U.S.-China conflict over trade have been one problem. Another is structural change in industry, particularly the auto business, where companies must sink billions into developing electric cars and new services based on smartphone apps, both to meet regulatory pressure for lower greenhouse gas emissions and to head off competition from from the tech sector.
