Germania. Baviera. Csu inverte la rotta. Troppo tardi.

Merkel 0921_Piccolo Formato

I media possono dire e scrivere qualunque cosa vogliano, vera o falsa, giusta o sbagliata, elogiatrice o calunniatrice, laudatoria o denigrante, tanto la realtà resta lì, minimamente scalfita dalle loro esternazioni. Tanto, ben poche sono le copie vendute e lette.

Gli Elettori stanno dando voto e promesse di voto ad Alternative für Deutschland e stanno ritirando il consenso a suo tempo dato alla Csu ed all’Spd.

*

Anzi, per chiunque scorresse la lista dei risultati delle prospezioni, ossia il loro sviluppo storico, noterebbe immediatamente come l’ondata migratoria abbia sicuramente innescato il fenomeno, ma il comportamento di politici e media sia stato il vero elemento critico nel determinate il tracollo dei partiti tradizionali tedeschi.

La gente è semplicemente stufa, stanca, non ne può proprio di più della loro boriosa retorica.

E più questa prosegue, più si intensifica, più diventa urlata, maggiori sono i consensi che lasciano Union, Cdu e Csu, ed Spd per confluire su Alternative für Deutschland, che adesso è vicina ad avere più consensi dei socialdemocratici.

L’Spd è arrivata al 16% dei consensi.

Ma se le elezioni del 24 settembre furono una clamorosa débâcle, questi cinque mesi di inedia alla ricerca di compromessi snaturanti ha causato una ben peggiore emorragia di consensi.

Nei fatti, non è tanto Alternative für Deutschland che conquista consensi, quanto piuttosto loro che li perdono, e più li perdono più si incancreniscono nel loro modus sentiendi operandique.

* * * * * * *

La Csu bavarese ha subito un crollo di quasi dieci punti percentuali, ossia un decremento percentuale del -25%.

Un quarto dei suoi Elettori le ha voltato le spalle.

L’anno prossimo si terranno le elezioni nei Länder dell’Assia e della Baviera, e le previsioni elettorali sono fosche.

Germania. Elezioni di ottobre in Assia. Prospezioni.

Baviera 2018. Anche i liberal massoni piangono.

*

La Csu ha cercato di correre ai ripari.

Germania. Csu. Mr Seehofer potrebbe essere sostituito da Mr Söder.

Ed infatti Herr Söder ha sostituito Herr Seehofer, silurato con una operazione degna del Kremlin.

Ma il cambio della guardia ben poco gioverebbe senza un cambio di direzione politica.

Ecco alcune frasi pronunciate da Herr Söder.

«For anyone who believes that Islam or even Sharia belongs to our country, I can only say they have nothing to do with Bavaria’s cultural heritage»

*

«We can’t forget our own people»

*

«We are the only country in the world in which you can get in without a passport but you can’t get out»

*

«We want to reunite the democratic right, …. It was a mistake to surrender to (the AfD) those voters who are to the right of center»

*

«the CSU was not moving to the far-right but simply returning to its past credibility»

* * * * * * *

Discorsi questi che avrebbero anche potuto essere credibili se la Csu non avesse aderito al programma Merkel – Schulz per il rinnovo della Große Koalition: quanto sottoscritto con Cdu ed Spd contraddice vistosamente con quanto detto e qui riportato.

E non ci si illuda che gli Elettori abbocchino.


Handelsblatt. 2018-02-16. Bavaria’s folksy push to the political right

The premier-elect of this conservative southern state wants to recapture political ground his party, the Christian Social Union, lost to the populist Alternative for Germany.

*

Markus Söder had a stark message for the 4,000 party loyalists, many clad in traditional leather pants and dirndl dresses, who turned out to see the CSU politician speak at an annual political roast on Ash Wednesday: “For anyone who believes that Islam or even Sharia belongs to our country, I can only say they have nothing to do with Bavaria’s cultural heritage.”

Was that a battle cry against the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party? You bet it was. The AfD campaigned on a xenophobic, anti-immigrant and anti-Islamic platform last year and caused a political earthquake in Europe’s second-largest economy when it became the first right-wing party voted into the Bundestag since World War II. And more than a battle cry, was Mr. Söder’s choice of location for the roast – Passau – near the Austrian border, where thousands of Muslim migrants crossed the border in 2015 and 2016, in any way symbolic? Absolutely.

Mr. Söder has shifted into attack mode, eight months ahead of the state election in Bavaria, where the CSU, the Bavarian sister party to Chancellor Angela Merkel’s CDU, could lose its absolute majority in the regional parliament if it fails to halt the AfD. The state finance and homeland minister, who will replace his party’s premier, Horst Seehofer, next month, is pulling out all the weapons in his war chest to fight the populist party. In an impassioned 80-minute speech, he vowed to increase deportations of failed asylum seekers, tighten border security and beef up scrutiny of foreign funding for mosques – all core vote-grabbing issues of the AfD.

Above the clatter of beer mugs and lively chatter, the 51-year-old politician spoke of Germans being worried about the sheer numbers of refugees and other migrants who have entered the country (more than 1.4 million people have applied for asylum in since 2014, representing more than 43 percent of total applications to the EU). While honoring the numbers Bavaria has accepted, he warned of the soaring costs that have emptied state coffers. “We can’t forget our own people,” he said to a roaring crowd.

In veiled criticism of Chancellor Merkel’s open-door policy that allowed many refugees to enter the country without identification and of the government’s largely failed program to deport rejected asylum seekers, he added: “We are the only country in the world in which you can get in without a passport but you can’t get out.” That line drew even louder clapping and cheering.

In many ways, Mr. Söder sounded like Franz-Josef Strauss, the tough-talking arch-Bavarian who helped found the CSU and led the party for 25 years. The legendary politician proclaimed in his campaign for the state election in 1986: “No legitimate political party can be right of the CSU.”

That’s exactly where the designated premier wants to reposition the party after being tugged into the middle as a junior partner in the conservative alliance, known as the “union,” together with Ms. Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union. “We want to reunite the democratic right,” he said. “It was a mistake to surrender to (the AfD) those voters who are to the right of center.”

The conservatives, Mr. Söder stressed, must make clear to voters that the AfD is “no substitute for the union.” He stressed the CSU was not moving to the far-right but simply returning to its “past credibility.”

The CDU and CSU both bled support to the anti-immigrant AfD in last September’s national election. The alliance suffered its worst election result since WWII, down to 33 percent of the vote from 41.5 percent in 2013.

Ms. Merkel has come under intense fire in recent days from conservatives for giving too many concessions to the Social Democrats to renew a coalition deal with the center-left party. Many are particularly angered over losing the finance ministry, considered second only to the chancellorship in importance.

Anche i tedeschi della Germania orientale votano. AfD 25%.

2018-02-18__Germania_Est__001

Fanno capo alla così detta Germania =rientale oltre diciassette milioni di persone, tra residenti e quanti godano lì del diritto di voto.

Anche se la Germania Orientale rappresenta poco meno del 20% della popolazione totale tedesca, ad essa fanno capo molti stati: Slesia, Pomerania, Distretto del Memel, Brandeburgo e Sassonia.

Nelle elezioni politiche del 24 settembre nella Germania Orientale la Cdu conseguì un 27.6% dei voti, mentre Afd arrivò al 21.9%.

Le proiezioni Enmid del 14 febbraio attribuiscono alla Cdu il 26.0% (-1.6 punti percentuali) ed un 25.0% (+3.1 punti percentuali) ad AfD.

*

Se è vero che in sede parlamentare si è determinata una sorta di arco costituzionale con conventio ad exludendum nei confronti di AfD, sarebbe altrettanto vero ricordare come i senatori del Bundesrat siano eletti dai singoli Länder. E con il 25%, se non di più nel tempo, AfD sembrerebbe marciare verso la conquista di un buon numero di senatori.

Ungheria. Mr Orban mette fuori leggi le ngo pro-immigrazione.

Giuseppe Sandro Mela.

2018-02-20__Orban_Soros__001

L’otto aprile si terranno in Ungheria le elezioni politiche per il rinnovo del parlamento.

«Opinion polls shows Fidesz, Mr Orban’s party, is on course to win a huge victory in the election. A rolling average of opinion polls ahead of the contest shows his party on over 50 per cent of the vote, which would give them a majority. Polling in second place on 17 per cent is Jobbik, an extreme far-right party, while the centre-left social democrats trial in third position on around 12 per cent»

*

«At least part of the new law would require a two-thirds majority in the parliament to pass because it affects the “basic law” of the country’s constitution»

*

Sotto la condizione che le attuali prospezioni elettorali siano corrette, il Fidesz potrebbe ottenere la maggioranza dei deputati, forse anche in numero tale da poter da solo varare leggi costituzionali.

Nel caso della legge sulle ngo di Mr Soros però sembrerebbe ragionevole prospettare anche il voto favorevole del Jobbik, che apporterebbe un surplus del 17% del totale dei deputati eletti.

Di conseguenza, sembrerebbe essere ragionevole prospettare che la legge sulle ngo possa essere approvata in tempi rapidi.

In questa maniera l’Ungheria assumerebbe le posizioni prese da tempo da quasi tutto il resto del mondo civile. E nessuno potrebbe negare che i risultati delle urne non siano espressione democratica.

Cina. Una nuova legge sulle Ong (Ngo).

Ong. Tempi durissimi. India avvia inchiesta sulla Bloomberg Philanthropies.

Russia. Nuova legge sulle ong (ngo). Povero Mr Soros.

Anche negli Stati Uniti e nel Regno Unito iniziano a tirare venti tempestosi sull’impero di Mr Soros.

Trump attacca frontalmente Mr Soros come un toro infuriato.

Racket delle ong. Questo è il titolo del Gatestone Institute.

Oxfam. Il vero problema di cui nessuno vuole parlare è il gruzzolo.

Soros finanzia la campagna anti-Brexit. Inglesi irritati.

Solo l’attuale dirigenza pro tempore dell’Unione Europea persiste nell’ideologia liberal e socialista, anche se negli ultimi tempi l’Elettorato ha voltato loro le spalle. Ora come ora, l’Italia è uno dei pochi paesi rimasti con governo ideologico, e verosimilmente il 4 marzo potrebbe esserci un cambio della guardia, allineando così anche l’Italia ai principi fondamentali della società civile mondiale.

Ngo (ong) chiedono maggiori fondi all’Unione Europea

* * * * * * *

In questo contesto si colloca l’ultima iniziativa di Mr Orban in materia.

«Last year, the Orban government introduced a measure requiring NGOs that get money from abroad to register with the state, raising alarm in the EU and United States.»

*

«The European Commission said last year it was taking Budapest to the EU’s top court over its NGO laws as well as a higher education law that targets the Central European University in Budapest founded by Soros»

*

«Hungary’s nationalist government introduced legislation that would empower the interior minister to ban non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that support migration and pose a “national security risk”.»

*

«The government says the bill, which would also impose a 25 percent tax on foreign donations to NGOs that back migration in Hungary, is meant to deter illegal immigration»

*

«NGOs that sponsor, organize or support the entry or stay of third-country citizens on Hungarian territory via a safe third country to extend international protection … qualify as organizations supporting migration»

*

«Such activity – including campaigning, advocacy, recruiting volunteers, producing information booklets – would have to be approved by the interior minister, who could deny permission if he saw a “national security risk”.»

*

«Orban’s message, championing conservative Christian beliefs and rejecting multiculturalism, has gone down well with Hungarian voters and his Fidesz party is expected to secure a third straight term in a general election»

*

«Activists who organize or support migration could also face restraining orders preventing them from approaching the EU’s external borders in Hungary»

* * * * * * *

Ogni cosa richiede i suoi tempi.

L’ideologia liberal e quella del socialismo non attraggono più gli Elettori: solo per citare qualche numero, il partito socialista francese si aggira attorno al 6% e la socialdemocrazia tedesca è crollata al 15%, 

La dirigenza dell’Unione Europea è ancora sua strenua sostenitrice, ma anche per essa si avvicinano scadenze elettorali che sembrerebbero esserle non favorevoli. Già adesso la gestione del Consiglio di Europa appare del tutto problematica, e la Germania è tuttora senza governo. Ed anche qualora prendesse corpo la riedizione della Große Koalition il potere reale di Frau Merkel sarebbe solo il fantasma di quello che fu un tempo.

Ancora qualche anno di tempo, e la devoluzione del socialismo dovrebbe essere arrivata in porto.


Reuters. 2018-02-14. Hungary submits anti-immigration ‘Stop Soros’ bill to parliament

BUDAPEST (Reuters) – Hungary’s nationalist government introduced legislation that would empower the interior minister to ban non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that support migration and pose a “national security risk”.

The bill, submitted to parliament late on Tuesday, is a key part of Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s anti-immigration campaign targeting U.S. financier George Soros whose philanthropy aims to bolster liberal and open-border values in eastern Europe.

The government says the bill, which would also impose a 25 percent tax on foreign donations to NGOs that back migration in Hungary, is meant to deter illegal immigration Orban says is eroding European stability and has been stoked in part by Soros.

Hungary and Poland are both under nationalist governments that have clashed with the European Union leadership in Brussels over their perceived authoritarian drift deviating from EU standards on democracy and rule of law.

But Orban’s message, championing conservative Christian beliefs and rejecting multiculturalism, has gone down well with Hungarian voters and his Fidesz party is expected to secure a third straight term in a general election due on April 8.

The bill says that NGOs that “sponsor, organize or support the entry or stay of third-country citizens on Hungarian territory via a safe third country to extend international protection … qualify as organizations supporting migration”.

Such activity – including campaigning, advocacy, recruiting volunteers, producing information booklets – would have to be approved by the interior minister, who could deny permission if he saw a “national security risk”.

If an NGO continued with such activity, Hungarian prosecutors could act to withdraw the NGO’s tax number, essentially paralyzing them, slap them with heavy fines and ultimately dissolve them.

TAX BITE

Organizations that support migration will have to pay tax on the foreign funding or assets they receive, the bill says, with a possible exemption on funding that serves humanitarian goals.

Activists who organize or support migration could also face restraining orders preventing them from approaching the EU’s external borders in Hungary.

Orban has been embroiled in an escalating “Stop Soros” feud with the 87-year-old Hungarian-born Jew, waging a billboard and media campaign asserting that he would “settle millions from Africa and the Middle East”.

Soros has rejected the campaign against him as “distortions and lies” meant to create a false external enemy.

Pro-government media reported earlier that the new legislation could lead to a ban on Soros, who has U.S. and Hungarian citizenship, entering the country.

The Hungarian Helsinki Committee, an NGO that has been providing support for the legal and human rights of various groups including asylum seekers and prisoners since 1994, said the bill was unacceptable and served political goals.

“(Its goal) is to stigmatize certain civil organizations that the government does not like… and to distance them from society, and in the end make their operation impossible,” the committee, which receives a major chunk of its funding from Soros, said in a statement.

Poland, Hungary and other ex-communist eastern member states of the EU have all pushed a strong anti-immigrant stance, even though the number of asylum seekers who want to stay in these countries are very few compared to western European countries.

Last year, the Orban government introduced a measure requiring NGOs that get money from abroad to register with the state, raising alarm in the EU and United States.

The European Commission said last year it was taking Budapest to the EU’s top court over its NGO laws as well as a higher education law that targets the Central European University in Budapest founded by Soros.


Independent. 2018-02-15. Hungary’s right-wing government plans law allowing it to ban organisations that help immigrants

Viktor Orban’s government unveils policy ahead of country’s general election.

*

The right-wing populist Hungarian government of Viktor Orban has outlined plans for a new law that would give it the power to ban civil society groups that help immigrants and refugees.

The measure is one of the planks in Mr Orban’s drive against US financier George Soros, who has been the target of a state-backed national hate campaign because of his funding of liberal projects.

The law defines organisations that helps migrants as any NGOs that “sponsor, organise or otherwise support a third-country national’s entry or stay in Hungary via a safe third country in order to ensure international protection”.

Hungary’s interior minister, the equivalent of its Home Secretary, would have to grant approval and a permit for any such organisation to operate, and could prevent them from doing any work on “national security” grounds. 

The definition in the law covers organisations that do legal work, campaign, distributing information or recruiting volunteers with the aim of helping foreign nationals.

The new law would also require NGOs that did gain approval to pay a special 25 per cent tax on any international funding aimed at helping migrants and refugees. 

Under the bill, activists for NGOs could also be issued with restraining orders to prevent them from going near Hungary’s borders, in order to hinder their work.

International NGOs condemned the new bill, which was introduced to the Hungarian Parliament ahead of elections to be held on 8 April this year.

“This law would give the government carte blanche to target NGOs on the flimsiest of pretexts,” Gauri van Gulik, Europe director of Amnesty International said.

“In reality, these proposals have nothing to do with protecting national security or borders, and everything with muzzling those who work to assist people in need and dare to raise their voices.

“We call on Hungary to withdraw this bill, and it is high time for EU leaders, who have watched on the sidelines as Hungary crossed red line after red line, to finally take concrete action to stop this assault on civil society.”

Mr Orban has campaigned heavily on the issue of immigration to Hungary and claimed that the law will prevent the giving up of “national independence” and hinder politicians who he claimed wanted to “transform Hungary into an immigrant country”.

Opinion polls shows Fidesz, Mr Orban’s party, is on course to win a huge victory in the election. A rolling average of opinion polls ahead of the contest shows his party on over 50 per cent of the vote, which would give them a majority. Polling in second place on 17 per cent is Jobbik, an extreme far-right party, while the centre-left social democrats trial in third position on around 12 per cent.

At least part of the new law would require a two-thirds majority in the parliament to pass because it affects the “basic law” of the country’s constitution.

Germania. Spd. Herr Kevin Kuehnert e la cagnetta Lima iscritto al partito.

2018-02-22__Spd_Lima__001

«Der Fall wirft ein Schlaglicht auf die umstrittene GroKo-Abstimmung in der SPD.»


«Geht bei der Mitgliederabstimmung der SPD alles mit rechten Dingen zu? Oder ist Manipulation möglich? BILD enthüllte: Sogar ein Hund („Lima“) wurde ganz offiziell SPD-Mitglied.»

“Il voto interno per i membri del SPD è davvero corretto? Oppure è possibile una manipolazione? Bild lo ha rivelato: Anche una cagnetta (“Lima”) è diventata membro ufficiale del SPD.”

*

«„Wir prüfen, ob wir die Mitgliedschaft annullieren können, da sie offensichtlich mit Täuschungsabsicht erstellt worden ist.“»

“Stiamo verificando per vedere se possiamo annullare l’iscrizione, perché ovviamente è stata creata con l’ intento di ingannare”

*

Per approfondimenti su come una cagnetta possa iscriversi alla socialdemocrazia tedesca e votare, e come la burocrazia interna del partito non sappia che pesci prendere per annullarne l’iscrizione, suggeriremmo questo articolo:

Staatsrechtler Prof. Ulrich Battis zum Fall Lima Ist der SPD-Mitgliederentscheid jetzt ungültig?

È stata sentita anche la avvocatura di Stato, nella persona del Prof. Ulrich Battis.

* * * * * * * *

Stanno girando molte salacie sul conto della Spd. Bild non gliene rattoppa nemmeno una.

Sono in molti ad argomentare che se nell’Spd c’è posto per Herr Schulz, allora Lima si troverebbe a casa sua. Altri invece difendono la povera cagna, asserendo che i socialdemocratici se la sbraneranno more ferarum, così come hanno fatto con Herr Gabriel.

Sta di fatto che sia stato possibile che un cane si iscrivesse al partito Spd, ricevesse le schede per il voto ed infine abbia votato.

Non si vorrebbe entrare in dettagli, ma si lascia ai signori Lettori trarre le conclusioni su cosa stia succedendo in Germania nel referendum di partito se aderire o meno alla Große Koalition.

Merkel. Due terzi dell’Spd supporterebbero il cancellierato Merkel.

NoGroKo JuSo. I giovani socialisti vogliono affossare la Große Koalition.

«Für 10 Euro bleibst du zwei Monate Mitglied, stimmst gegen die Große Koalition und gehst dann wieder raus»

“Per 10 euro, rimarrai membro per due mesi, voterai contro la Grande Coalizione e poi te ne uscirai”

Ma se questa è la simpatica versione democratica di Herr Kevin Kuehnert, che si compra i voti a suo di euro, Herr Schulz non scherza mica: ha fatto iscrivere all’Spd un buon numero di islamici, non cittadini tedeschi. Oltre 7,000.

Ci si domanda che senso abbia fare delle votazioni in questa e con simile gente.

Otterrà la maggioranza dei consensi la fazione

che avrà saputo fare i brogli migliori.

*

«The biggest risk to the membership vote is posed by the left-leaning members who for ideological reasons oppose a grand coalition»

*

Al momento il risultato del referendum è impredicibile, ma i suoi effetti saranno duraturi.

Con questa manovra Herr Schulz è riuscito a spaccare in due fazioni contrapposte il suo vecchio partito.

Se è possibile formare una nuova Große Koalition, appare del tutto inverosimile che Herr Kevin Kuehnert resista alla tentazione di mandarla in minoranza a tempo opportuno, per esempio dopo le elezioni nei Länder Hesse a Baviera.

All’ultimo minuto, arriva una smentita ufficiale.

German dog won’t be able to vote on Merkel coalition despite newspaper report

«Social Democrats are angry at a report about a dog joining the party and getting a ballot on the grand coalition. Untrue, they say — but does this case highlight a flaw in asking party members to approve the deal?

It’s a tale of the party versus the paper. On Tuesday, Germany’s Bild newspaper — never averse to attention-grabbing, if sometimes misleading headlines — led with a story that a three-year-old dog named Lima had joined the Social Democratic Party (SPD) and received a ballot asking her to vote on the SPD’s coalition agreement with Angela Merkel’s conservatives.

The party is asking its 460,000-plus members to ratify the deal before entering into another junior partnership with Merkel. Roughly 25,000 new members signed on before the deadline on February 6 to be eligible to vote on the agreement. Critics object that the procedure gives a small group of people undue influence over the next German government and is open to abuse.

Bild filled out the membership application form for Lima as a way of underscoring those points, much to the amusement of many Germans. But the SPD wasn’t laughing.

The party, wracked by internal divisions over the prospect of another coalition with Merkel and sinking to historic lows in public opinion polls, immediately denied that Lima would have been able to vote. In a statement, the SPD executive board said that to be valid, all ballots in the vote, which runs until March 2, must be accompanied by a signed affidavit as to the voter’s identity.»

Bloomberg. 2018-02-21. Merkel’s Final Barrier to Historic Fourth Term Has a Name: Kevin

– Young Berlin activist leads opposition to coalition deal

– SPD vote’s a toss-up with ‘good arguments’ on both sides

*

The last barrier to Chancellor Angela Merkel’s fourth term is an activist named Kevin who was born the same year the Berlin Wall fell.

The 28-year-old head of the Social Democrats’ youth organization, Kevin Kuehnert has become the youthful face of widespread party frustration, arguing that a role in the opposition is better than yet another alliance with the so-called Queen of Europe. Battling Merkel and his own party’s leadership, he’s become a ubiquitous presence in Germany, appearing on talk shows, giving newspaper and television interviews and debating at SPD events. 

“The SPD is a proud, old party and doesn’t have to orient itself based on what Mrs. Merkel wants,” Kuehnert said in an interview with public broadcaster ARD on Sunday after a rally near Frankfurt. “We’re not in a monarchy.”

Kuehnert’s direct rhetoric and boy-next-door appearance stand to make for a tight race as SPD’s 463,000 members start voting Tuesday on accepting or rejecting the coalition agreement with Merkel’s Christian Democrat-led bloc. The results of the ballot, which will be conducted by mail, will be unveiled on March 4.

“The biggest risk to the membership vote is posed by the left-leaning members who for ideological reasons oppose a grand coalition,” Manfred Guellner, head of polling group Forsa. “It’s difficult to predict the outcome.”

Bild, Germany’s most-read newspaper, helped stoke the flames of political tension on Tuesday with a front-page story about a dog named Lima that became an SPD member. “Is manipulation possible?,” the tabloid wrote. “This is an attempt to make a farce out of strong internal party democracy, which others parties could use themselves,” Ralf Stegner, SPD vice chairman, wrote on Twitter.

Tensions within the SPD surged in the months after a historic defeat in national elections in September, with the membership split over whether to rebuild in opposition or to push for Social Democratic policies from inside the government. That dilemma has become existential as support further declined from a postwar election low. One poll on Monday showed the SPD below the far-right Alternative for Germany for the first time.

Fading Support

Now, it’s up to the SPD members to decide on a coalition agreement that stabilizes Germany, but risks further diluting the party’s profile by serving as Merkel’s junior partner for the third time. 

Andrea Nahles, the SPD’s designated chairwoman, who along with other party leaders is crisscrossing Germany to lobby in favor of a return to government, is optimistic about the vote because of gains made for workers and retirees in the coalition agreement. Even so, the party still needs to reinvent itself to win back voters, she said before a rally in Mainz. A poll from Friday showed 66 percent of members backing a so-called grand coalition of Germany’s two biggest parties.

“It’s very difficult because there’s good arguments on both sides,” said Joerg Lorenz, managing director of the party’s operations in Duisburg, a traditional SPD stronghold in Germany’s Rust Belt, adding that the level of tension is like nothing he’s seen in over 30 years of service.

Chancellor Tasks

Merkel’s response to the challenge from Kuehnert and others critics has been a return to the world stage, meeting with a series of dignitaries in recent days including British Prime Minister Theresa May as well as the heads of the Netherlands, Poland, Luxembourg and the World Bank. 

Despite criticism over handing the SPD the powerful finance ministry in the coalition accord, Merkel is reasserting control over her political base, appointing close ally and potential successor Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer as CDU general secretary. 

Kuehnert shrugs off the risks of SPD’s fall from grace, saying the best way to reverse the decline is by coming up with clear political positions in opposition or as an occasional collaborator with a CDU minority government.

“The SPD has nothing to fear by rejecting this coalition agreement,” Kuehnert, dressed in a black t-shirt, told ARD. “Now is the hour of the SPD members.”

Alitalia. Dovrebbe essere venduta dopo le elezioni.

2018-02-21__Alitalia__001

Alitalia ed Ilva hanno fornito per più di un decennio lo stimolo all’uso di fiumi di inchiostro: oceani di parole ma ci sono sempre rimaste sul groppone.

Impossibile sanarle con un’azione dall’interno: hanno bisogno di nuovi padroni che le trattino come loro si addice.

*

«Sarà venduta dopo le elezioni»

*

«Deve essere venduta perché da sola non ce la fa a stare in piedi soprattutto ora che c’è un competitor»

Così afferma il Ministro Calenda, che molto probabilmente dopo il 4 marzo non sarà più attore in questa contrattazione.

Non vorremmo entrare nel merito, anche per non dover dire cose davvero amare.

Guardiamo sconsolati la fotocopia del Sole 24 Ore del 21 febbraio 2008, ossia di dieci anni fa.

Sufficit.


Giornale. 2018-02-21. Embraco, Calenda: “Fondo anti delocalizzazione, Alitalia venduta dopo il voto”

Il ministro Calenda oggi a Bruxelles per la vicenda Embraco: “Stop agli atti sleali”. E su Alitalia: “Sarà venduta dopo le elezioni”.

*

A dirlo è Carlo Calenda, secondo cui la trattativa è solo “congelata” in vista delle elezioni politiche.

“Questa cosa che Alitalia e Ilva sono state messe sotto il tappeto è destituita di ogni fondamento”, dice il ministro per lo Sviluppo economico a Radio Anch’io su RadioUno, “Alitalia oggi ha una gestione che è migliorata, non ha toccato un euro del prestito dello Stato. Era tutta mia intenzione chiudere il prima possibile, ma i pretendenti, cioè Lufthansa e Air France, vogliono attendere le elezioni per avere un chiaro scenario politico. Io non le posso obbligare a comprare. Deve essere venduta perché da sola non ce la fa a stare in piedi soprattutto ora che c’è un competitor”.

Discorso diverso per l’Ilva: “C’è un cosiddetto arbitrato in corso”, ha ricordato Calenda, “Ha i suoi tempi e che si conclude dopo le elezioni, e c’è un negoziato coi sindacati, che è molto complesso”.

Al momento però il ministro deve occuparsi della vicenda Embraco, l’azienda che produce i motori dei frigoriferi Whirlpool e che ha deciso di licenziare praticamente tutto il personale dello stabilimento di Riva di Chieri, nel torinese, per delocalizzare a Est. Per questo Calenda – che oggi andrà a Bruxelles per affrontare la vicenda con l’Unione europea – chiede un fondo per evitare le fughe all’estero delle aziende, che prevenga le delocalizzazioni e “metta pacchetti che vadano oltre la normativa sugli aiuti di Stato per chi vuole andare a produrre altrove in Europa in condizioni di vantaggio legate al diverso grado di sviluppo dei Paesi”. “Abbiamo bisogno di strumenti più forti”, spiega in un’intervista al Corriere, “Quando c’è un Paese che offre un pacchetto di finanziamenti localizzativo anche conforme agli aiuti di Stato, ma che beneficia di condizioni più favorevoli, io devo essere in grado di operare al di fuori degli aiuti di Stato e offrire le medesime condizioni, ma voglio capire il perimetro entro cui posso dare applicazione pratica di questa misura”.

La Suprema Corte della Pennsylvania ridisegna i distretti pro democratici.

Nei libri di testo occidentali si legge come il potere legislativo, quello esecutivo e quello giudiziario dovrebbero essere separati.

Principio questo enunciato a gran voce dagli illuministi, salvo poi fare larghe eccezioni con l’avvento al potere dei giacobini, che usarono i tribunali, quelli ordinari e quelli speciali, come una sorta di gruppo di fuoco per far decapitare gli avversari politici, che loro consideravano essere dei nemici mortali.

Questa prassi è stata ripresa in modo estensivo negli Stati Uniti sotto la Presidenza Obama, e tuttora le Corti i giudici delle quali siano affiliati ai liberal democratici intervengono pesantemente nelle competenze politiche.

«Democrats must gain 24 seats nationwide to take control of the House from Republicans. Republicans hold 13 of Pennsylvania’s 18 congressional seats»

*

Nel 2011 con il Pennsylvania Congressional Redistricting Act of 2011, 25 P.S. § 3596.101 et seq. il Governo dello Stato della Pennsylvania aveva variato i confini dei distretti elettorali per adeguarli alle mutate condizioni demografiche, sulla scorta del censimento 2010.

Il 13 aprile 2018, tra poco più di un mese, la Pennsylvania dovrà andare alle urne.

Il 18 febbraio 2018, ossia sette anni dopo la riforma dei distretti e subito a ridosso delle elezioni, la Suprema Corte di Giustizia dello Stato della Pennsylvania dichiara tale riforma incostituzionale, con atto bit.ly/2FeQtPJ.


«PER CURIAM Filed: February 19, 2018

By Order dated January 22, 2018, this Court announced that the Pennsylvania Congressional Redistricting Act of 2011, 25 P.S. § 3596.101 et seq. (the “2011 Plan”), clearly, plainly and palpably violates the Pennsylvania Constitution. This adjudication was based upon the uncontradicted evidentiary record developed in the Commonwealth Court, wherein the Petitioners established that the 2011 Plan was a partisan gerrymander and that this gerrymander was extreme and durable. It was designed to dilute the votes of those who in prior elections voted for the party not in power in order to give the party in power a lasting electoral advantage. In stark contrast, Article I, Section 5 of our Constitution provides: “Elections shall be free and equal; and no power, civil or military, shall at any time interfere to prevent the free exercise of the right of suffrage.” Pa. Const. art. I, § 5. On this record, it is clear that the 2011 Plan violates Article I, Section 5, since a diluted vote is not an equal vote.

Having determined that the 2011 Plan violates our Constitution, the question of the appropriate remedy remained. This Court was compelled to decide whether to perpetuate an unconstitutional districting plan, which would result in the unlawful dilution of our citizens’ votes in the impending election, or to rectify the violation of our Commonwealth’s Constitution immediately. So stated, our choice was clear. As this Court has aptly recognized, the fundamental rights guaranteed by our organic charter “cannot lawfully be infringed, even momentarily.” Pap’s A.M. v. City of Erie, 812 A.2d 591, 607 (Pa. 2002) (internal quotation marks omitted).In our January 22 Order,1 this Court directed that, “should the Pennsylvania General Assembly choose to submit a congressional districting plan that satisfies the requirements” of that Order, the General Assembly was to submit such a plan to the Governor on or before February 9, 2018. If the Governor accepted the General Assembly’s congressional districting plan, this Court ordered such plan to be submitted to the Court on or before February 15, 2018. Thus, the General Assembly had a full eighteen days to submit a plan to the Governor, and the Governor had five days to consider and approve or disapprove the General Assembly’s plan. 2

This Court recognized that the primary responsibility for drawing congressional districts rested squarely with the legislature, but we also acknowledged that, in the eventuality of the General Assembly not submitting a plan to the Governor, or the Governor not approving the General Assembly’s plan within the time specified, it would fall to this Court expeditiously to adopt a plan based upon the evidentiary record developed in the Commonwealth Court. We also offered the opportunity for parties and intervenors to submit proposed remedial districting plans to the Court on or before February 15, 2018.

….

Accordingly, this 19th day of February, 2018, the Court orders as follows:

First, the Pennsylvania primary and general elections for seats in the United States House of Representatives commencing in the year 2018 shall be conducted in accordance with the Remedial Plan as described by the 2010 Census block equivalency (denominated the “Remedial Plan Census Block Equivalency Files”) and ESRI shape files (denominated the “Remedial Plan Shape Files”) uploaded to this Court’s website at http://www.pacourts.us/news-and-statistics/cases-of-public-interest/league-of-women-voters-et-al-v-the-commonwealth-of-pennsylvania-et-al-159-mm-2017, under the heading “Order Adopting Remedial Plan”. The Remedial Plan, in its constituent parts, is hereby made part of this Order, and is hereby adopted as the division of this Commonwealth into eighteen congressional districts, unless and until the same shall be lawfully changed. For reference, images of the Remedial Plan are attached at Appendix A, and available in high resolution at the above website; and images of the 2011 Plan are attached at Appendix B, and available in high resolution at the above website. Also uploaded to the above website are computer generated reports describing the Remedial Plan, identifying (1) county/minor civil division/voting district splits, (2) census place and municipal splits, and (3) compactness scores.

Second, Executive Respondents and Respondent General Assembly, including its Legislative Data Processing Center (“LDPC”),12 shall forthwith prepare textual language that describes the Remedial Plan13 and submit the same to the Secretary of the Commonwealth without delay. The Secretary of the Commonwealth shall thereafter file with this Court’s Prothonotary a certification of compliance of the preparation of the textual description of the Remedial Plan, along with a copy of the textual description.

Third, Respondent Secretary of the Commonwealth shall, without delay, following the preparation of the textual description of the Remedial Plan, publish notice of the Congressional Districts in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.

Fourth, to provide for an orderly election process, the schedule for the primary election to be held May 15, 2018 for the election of Representatives to the United States Congress shall be implemented by the Secretary of the Commonwealth and all election officers within the Commonwealth in accordance with the Revised Election Calendar as proposed by the Secretary of the Commonwealth and Commissioner of the Bureau of Commissions, Elections and Legislation,14 which Calendar is hereby approved, and is attached to this Order as Appendix C.

Fifth, should there be any congressional vacancies existing now or occurring after the entry of this Order, but prior to the commencement of the terms of the members to be elected in the General Election of 2018, they shall be filled for the remainder of the unexpired terms from the districts formerly prescribed in the Congressional Redistricting Act of 2011, 25 P.S. § 3596.301.

Sixth, the Secretary of the Commonwealth is directed to notify this Court by 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 20, 2018, should it foresee any technical issues concerning the implementation of the Remedial Plan.

So Ordered.

Reuters. 2018-02-19. Pennsylvania top court redraws voting map in boost to Democrats

Pennsylvania’s top court on Monday unveiled a new map carving out the state’s U.S. congressional voting districts, imposing a plan it said was based on “traditional criteria” after rejecting a proposal drawn up by Republican lawmakers as unconstitutional.

The state Supreme Court had ruled that the Republican plan effectively marginalized likely Democratic voters. As a result, the Republicans have a more than 2-1 advantage in the state’s U.S. House of Representatives delegation, even though the number of registered Republicans and Democrats in Pennsylvania is roughly even.

The court-imposed plan could help Democrats who want to gain control of the U.S. Congress in the November midterm elections.

The new map “is composed of congressional districts which follow the traditional redistricting criteria of compactness, contiguity, equality of population, and respect for the integrity of political subdivisions,” the court’s order said.

State Republican leaders condemned the new map, saying the court was usurping the powers of the legislative and executive branches.

“We anticipate further action in federal court” to challenge the new boundaries, state Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati and state House Speaker Mike Turzai said in a statement.

Susan Carty, president of the League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania, which was among 19 plaintiffs in the lawsuit, said lawmakers should heed the ruling.

”To avoid future gerrymanders and court intervention, the legislature should now work toward creating an independent, impartial and accountable redistricting process,” she said in a statement.

The justices redrew the boundaries with the help of independent experts after Democratic Governor Tom Wolf last week rejected a proposal drawn by Republican legislative leaders as unfairly skewed in their party’s favor.

Legal battles are playing out in several U.S. states over gerrymandering, the process by which district lines are manipulated to favor one party. Pennsylvania has long been seen as one of the worst offenders, with one of its districts nicknamed “Goofy Kicking Donald Duck,” a reference to a cartoon image evoked by its odd shape.

Pennsylvania is a hotly contested swing state, and the redistricting is expected to boost Democrats’ chances of winning several of the U.S. House seats in the state in November.

Democrats must gain 24 seats nationwide to take control of the House from Republicans. Republicans hold 13 of Pennsylvania’s 18 congressional seats.

The new map means that Democrats could win up to 11 seats in Pennsylvania in midterm elections, said Michael Li, a lawyer with the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University’s law school, which filed an amicus brief in the case.

“This is the map that many people think is natural for Pennsylvania, which is a 50-50 state, a classic battleground, but hasn’t performed that way in terms of congressional elections for decades,” he said by telephone.

The Republican-controlled legislature created the current map in 2011, after the 2010 U.S. census. The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected Republicans’ appeal of the state court’s ruling in January striking down the boundaries.

Per usare termini politicamente corretti, è finito il tempo in cui la dirigenza dell’Unione Europea usava il budget comunitario per finanziare i propri amici e conoscenti, nonché i propri sostenitori politici.

Per quanto grande, per quanto importante possa essere, l’Unione Europea rende conto del 10.41% del pil ppa mondiale: non può ignorare come si stiano comportando gli altri.  In particolare, l’abbattimento delle tasse negli Stati Uniti comporta ipso facto una riduzione degli impegni statali oppure una espansione del debito.

Express. 2018-02-17. EU united front disintegrates as Austria warns Brussels to cut spending after Brexit

THE European Union’s long-term funding plans have been thrown into chaos after Austria refused to pay more to help plug a £11.5bn budget black hole caused by Brexit.

*

Funding for the bloc’s flagship projects should be cut instead of expecting remaining member states to make up the difference, Austria’s finance chief insisted as chinks in the EU’s united front appear.

The EU27 have repeatedly followed the bloc’s lead as Brexit negotiations continue, but the issue of the budget shortfall once Britain leaves has highlighted division. 

Gernot Blümel, Austria’s finance chief, said: “It can not be that the EU is smaller and that the budget is greater.”

He made the comments after meeting with EU finance boss Günther Oettinger, who has been tasked with drawing up the bloc’s next six-year budget minus the hefty contributions made by the UK.

But despite Britain’s impending departure, Brussels is reportedly considering upping its current £852bn (€960bn) spend.

Mr Oettinger, along with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, are hoping richer member states which pay more into the bloc than they get out will dig deep and make up the billions paid in by the UK.

But Sweden, Finland, Denmark, the Netherlands and now Austria have insisted they are not prepared to fill the gap.

All five nations, like Britain, are classed as ‘net contributors’ to the EU.

In order to pass the 2021-2027 budget, all 27 remaining member states need to agree. 

Following the talks in Vienna today, which also involved Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, Mr Oettinger said: “When it comes to money, there is a dispute.”

However he said the EU is ready to cut back on some of its landmark schemes, such as its cohesion policy which provides massive investment to the bloc’s poorest regions.

Net contributor nations are responsible for funding this policy, which is designed to improve living standards, modernise infrastructure and boost economic growth. 

Mr Oettinger said: ”We will have to cut moderately but considerably with almost all programmes of the EU budget.”

But officials in Brussels are still scratching their heads over how to make up the £11.5bn paid in by the UK.

And other essential projects, including border security and funding to handle inward migration, is expected to run to a further £8.85bn (€10bn)

Options on the table include an EU-wide plastic tax, changes to its carbon emissions scheme and a hike in the cost of entering the bloc for non-EU nationals. 

The EU will submit a draft for its long-term budget in May.

Elezioni 001

Demopolis ha rilasciato un interessante chiarimento relativo alle prospezioni elettorali già pubblicate.

Italia. Elezioni. 35 collegi nel Meridione saranno decisivi. Analisi dei collegi.

La stratificazione del campione avviene per:

– Voto certo: Cittadini che si dichiarano sicuri della scelta di voto;

– Voto incerto (odierno): Il consenso come se so fosse votato il giorno della prospezione;

– Voto potenziale: Prendono in considerazione l’ipotesi di votare il partito.

*

2018-02-20__Demopolis__001

Il voto certo rappresenta la zoccolo duro di un partito: ben il 72% degli intervistati si è dichiarato certo e sicuro di cosa avrebbe votato. È una percentuale davvero molto alta, specie poi se considerata in confronto con paesi quali la Francia, la Germania oppure il Regno Unito.

Questo risultato si presta anche ad altre considerazioni, la principale delle quali verte il partito democratico.

Questo dalle elezioni europee ha perso circa venti punti percentuali. Una emorragia di voti simile a quella subita in Germania dalla socialdemocrazia.

Da questi dati si potrebbe concludere che gli Elettori che hanno abbandonato il partito democratico lo abbiano fatto in modo irreversibile, altrimenti le fasce dei voti incerti o potenziali dovrebbero ben più elevate.

Questa semplice Tabella riassuntiva ci racconta cosa sia accaduto in Germania nel corso dell’ultimo anno.

Accanto ai valori percentuali è riportata la variazione percentuale calcolata in accordo a questa formula:

100 * (Percentualedel giorno – PercentualeStart) / PercentualeStart).

Nel volgere di un anno la socialdemocrazia tedesca ha visto il consenso elettorale dimezzarsi, con un decremento percentuale del -53%, mentre nel converso AfD ha raddoppiato il proprio consenso.

AfD è diventata il secondo partito tedesco.

Ma soprattutto ciò che impressiona è il trend costantemente decrescente per la socialdemocrazia e costantemente crescente per AfD. Elemento questo che suggerirebbe che possa mantenersi sostenuto nel futuro.

* * * * * * *

Come tutti i dati, anche questi si prestano ad essere analizzati da differenti punti di vista, ciascuno dei quali metter in risalto un particolare aspetto. Di certo, non sembrerebbe sussistere una causa unica di questo fenomeno, che forse potrebbe anche essere definito epocale.

*

La devoluzione dell’ideologia liberal e di quella socialista è fenomeno evidente dai risultati elettorali dell’ultimo anno.

Questo il sommario.

Fatti Elettorali.

– Il 20 gennaio 2017 si è insediato il Presidente Trump, che a novembre aveva conquistato 304 grandi elettori contro i 227 di Mrs Hillary Clinton, del partito democratico.

– Il 15 marzo 2017 alle elezioni politiche in Olanda il PvdA, Partij van de Arbeid, Partito Laburista di ideologia socialista crolla dai pregressi 38 seggi agli attuali 9 (nove).

– Il 10 aprile 2017 il Senato Americano ha approvato la nomina del Justice Neil Gorsuch nella Suprema Corte degli Stati Uniti. ‘Gorsuch is a proponent of textualism in statutory interpretation and originalism in interpreting the U.S. Constitution, and is an advocate of natural law jurisprudence.’ Ora la Suprema Corte è a maggioranza repubblicana.

– Il 7 maggio 2017 alle elezioni presidenziali francesi il partito socialista francese è crollato dal 62% all’8%.

– Il 21 settembre 2017 Mr Macron ha conquistato 22 su 171 seggi senatoriali.

– Il 24 settembre 2017 le elezioni federali politiche sanzionavano la perdita di 153 deputati della Große Koalition: la Cdu crollava al 32.9% e l’Spd al 20.5%.

– Il 15 ottobre in Austria Herr Sebastian Kurz trionfava alle elezioni austriache con il 31.6%, e l’Fpö raggiungeva il 26.0%.

– Il 21 – 22 ottobre 2017 nella Repubblica Ceka il partito Ano 2011 conseguiva il 29.6% dei voti (78 / 200 seggi), mentre il Čssd, la socialdemocrazia, crollava dal 20.5% del 2013 al 7.3% dei voti.

– Il 5 novembre 2017 in Slovakia, alle elezioni regionali, la Smer, partito socialista del presidente Fico, ha perso il controllo di quattro delle sei regioni. Nelle elezioni politiche del 2012 aveva conseguito il 44.4% dei voti, il 28.3% in quelle del 2016, il 26.2% nelle regionali.

– Il 27 gennaio 2018 nella Repubblica Ceka Mr Milos Zeman ha vinto le elezioni con il 51.64% dei voti validi, contro il 48.35% di Mr Jiri Drahos.

Fatti politici.

– Il 6 dicembre il Congresso degli Stati Uniti ha rigettato 364 – 58 la istanza democratica di impeachment al Presidente Trump. 123 deputati democratici hanno votato contro assieme ai repubblicani.

– L’8 dicembre la Polonia ha approvato la riforma del sistema giudiziario.

– Il 20 settembre il Congresso Americano ha approvato la riforma fiscale statunitense.

– Il 21 dicembre la Romania approva la riforma del sistema giudiziario.

– Il 27 gennaio 2018 Mr Trump in una cena a Davos con il Gotha dell’industria europea ricevere impegni di investimenti negli Stati Uniti per 600 miliardi di dollari.

– Il 18 febbraio 2018 Mr Trump annuncia un piano infrastrutturale per 1,600 miliardi.

* * *

In termini di consenso elettorale liberal e socialisti stanno sistematicamente perdendo tutti i confronti: la gente comune, gli Elettori, non li votano più.

La società civile non ne vuole più sapere di loro.

La ‘colpa’ di questo fenomeno non risiede nelle formazioni politiche che li fronteggiano, quanto piuttosto nel fatto che le loro teorie non riescono più a spiegare quanto accada né, tanto meno, a prevederne il futuro: sono teorie obsolete e sono tali perché avulse dalla realtà.

Hanno imposto alla gente gravami contro natura, e la natura si è ribellata. La gente comune non ne può di più del fraseggio politicamente corretto, esattamente come vuole una famiglia normale: un padre, una madre e dei figli.

Esattamente come il loro fallimento economico è certificato da una disoccupazione al 12% nell’Europa. Avevano promesso il paradiso su questa terra alla luce del sol dell’avvenire, e non sono stati capaci di generare posti di lavoro che non fossero altro che assistenziali.

Un ruolo potente nell’accelerare la devoluzione socialista è stato svolto dai media di regime. Si è ripetuta la storia già vista nell’Unione Sovietica.

Questi media hanno bombardato la gente con un overkilling mai visto prima nella storia: enough is enough.

I media hanno assunto una posizione di saccente alterigia, quasi che fossero i depositari della Verità, che il loro credo politico fosse il dogma religioso.

La derisione e persecuzione dei valori del retaggio religioso, storico, culturale, sociale ed artistico dei popoli, retaggio cui i popoli sono invece abbarbicati, è stato l’argomento cardine che ha portato alla devoluzione del socialismo.

La costante e martellante demonizzazione degli avversari politici, quasi fossero eretici da bruciare oppure poveri mentecatti che non riconoscevano il grande valore della loro ideologia.

L’uso sistematico della menzogna: questa è un’altra caratteristica del tutto indigesta del media liberal.

No amici miei. No.

Deutsche Welle. 2018-02-20. Germany’s far-right AfD overtakes Social Democrats in poll

The populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) has overtaken the Social Democrats (SPD) in a national opinion poll for the first time. The news comes as the SPD begins a crucial vote on a coalition with Angela Merkel.

*

A poll published on behalf of German tabloid Bild has found that 16 percent of voters would choose the right-wing, anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD), half-a-percent more than those who would vote for the Social Democrats (SPD).

The figures released by the INSA polling institute show theSPD in free fall. Germany’s oldest political party has seen its polling figures plummet even further since it garnered just 20.5 percent of the vote in September’s federal election, its worst result in the post-war era.

DW political correspondent Thomas Sparrow described the poll as a “bombshell,” and part of a larger trend that sees traditional parties losing ground to the anti-immigrant AFD.

“Let’s not forget that the AFD entered the German parliament for the first time in September, they became Germany’s third most important force political in the parliament and they tap essentially into people’s fears,” Sparrow told DW television. “We are talking here about immigration, about their suspicions regarding the establishment, the established political parties, that’s one of the reasons why they had been able to take some of those voters away from both the Conservatives and the Social Democrats.”

The newspaper Bild described the survey “a bitter blow” for the SPD, while INSA chief Hermann Binkert said the poll showed that “the conservative bloc is currently the only truly mainstream party.”

The SPD’s seen better days

The news will add to the Social Democrats’ woes, whose members on Tuesday will begin voting on whether to forge another “grand coalition” with Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservatives .

However, the SPD leadership’s decision to pursue a coalition deal with Merkel has been the catalyst for its fall in support. Many in the SPD — and the party’s youth wing in particular — have warned against another coalition, arguing that the party must go into opposition to properly regroup.

According to Sparrow, the fall of the SPD cannot be blamed squarely on the populist forces. The left-leaning party has lost its political “profile” by entering two grand coalitions with Angela Merkel, with the right-leaning chancellor taking away “some of the core elements” of the SPD’s identity.

“Let’s not forget that Social Democrats – for a very long time – were a natural home of Germany’s working class. And, to a certain extent, they lost that idea,” Sparrow said.

Martin Schulz, who led the party to its worst election result in since 1945, stepped down as leader last week. The SPD will hope a change in leadership in the form of Andrea Nahles will give it a much needed boost.

Nahles is expected to be elected to the helm of the SPD at the next party congress on April 22.

Elsewhere, the poll saw Merkel’s Christian Democrats strengthen their lead at the top by two points to 32 percent.

The Greens retained a steady 13 percent, the Left Party saw its support fall to 11 percent and the Free Democrats (FDP) fell 1.5 points to 9 percent.

A total of 2040 citizens were interviewed for the survey from 16-19 of February.

Second poll disputes INSA findings

Pollsters from INSA, however, admitted that a poll of this size had to take into account a margin of error of at least 3 percent, placing doubts over the AfD’s narrow 0.5 percent lead over the SPD. 

The Forsa Institute’s “Trend Barometer,” also published on Monday on behalf of German broadcasters RTIL and n-tv, found that the SPD was still second most popular party in Germany, albeit also with just 16 percent of the voter share.

The AfD, meanwhile, stil laid still a good way behind 13 percent of the vote. Merkel’s conservative bloc took 34 percent, while the Greens enjoyed 13 percent, the Left Party 10 percent and the Free Democrats 9 percent.

Queste sono le tesi che arditamente sostiene Mr Qaisar Mahmood.

«The idea had entered, however dimly, the popular consciousness: the Vikings were really Muslims. Islam is Swedish. Sweden was Islamic before it was Christian. The Muslim migrants are Swedes»

* * * * * * * *

Ricapitoliamo.

Nessuna preclusione mentale al fatto che il capo del National Heritage Board svedese possa essere un pakistano.

Esattamente come non esiste preclusione al fatto che sia un integralista islamico.

Fa specie che Mr Qaisar Mahmood sostenga tesi difficilmente compatibili con la carica ricoperta e con la documentazione storica disponibile. Invece che tutelare l’eredità nazionale la vuole semplicemente rimuovere alla radice.

«Vikings were really Muslims»

*

«Islam is Swedish»

*

«Sweden was Islamic before it was Christian»

*

Aspettiamo con pazienza i risultati delle prossime elezioni politiche. I governi nominano, ma anche destituiscono.

Ribadiamo qui un concetto già ripetutamente espresso.

Il problema non sono gli islamici, bensì la classe politica occidentale che li usa per conseguire e mantenere il potere politico, per snaturare ciò che era ed è il retaggio religioso, storico, culturale, sociale ed artistico occidentale.

Tra qualche mese gli Elettori svedesi andranno alle urne e staremo a vedere il risultato.


Frontpage Mag. 2018-02-15. Sweden Appoints Pakistani Muslim Head of National Heritage Board

And that marks the end of Sweden’s national heritage.

*

Qaisar Mahmood, a Muslim born in Pakistan, is the new head of the Swedish National Heritage Board. This is an extremely anomalous appointment, since he readily admits that he has not read anything about Sweden’s cultural heritage. But his new job is not really about preserving and protecting Sweden’s cultural heritage and historical sites at all.

Qaisar Mahmood, who once rode his motorcycle around Sweden in an apparently failed attempt to discover what being Swedish consisted of, is using his position as head of the Swedish National Heritage Board not to highlight and celebrate that heritage, but to downplay Sweden’s cultural heritage and history, and to create a false narrative that will help compel Swedes to accept mass Muslim migration. He says he doesn’t want simply to alert people to Viking artifacts and the like, but to use Sweden’s history to “create the narrative” that will make Muslim migrants “part of something.”

We have already seen how that works. Remember the fake news story about the Viking burial cloth bearing the word “Allah”? Last October, a Swedish researcher gained international headlines by claiming that burial costumes from Viking graves dating back to the ninth and tenth centuries had been found to be inscribed with the name “Allah.” The intent of this was obvious: to convince Swedes that Islam had always been a part of Sweden, all the way back to the days of the Vikings, and so they should not be concerned about the mass Muslim migration that was now bringing Sweden unprecedented rape and other crime rates. Islam has always been a part of Sweden! Stop opposing mass Muslim migration!

The Viking burial cloths didn’t really feature the name “Allah” at all, as Stephennie Mulder, an associate professor of Medieval Islamic art and archaeology at the University of Texas at Austin, proved shortly thereafter, but by then the damage had been done. The idea had entered, however dimly, the popular consciousness: the Vikings were really Muslims. Islam is Swedish. Sweden was Islamic before it was Christian. The Muslim migrants are Swedes.

The “Allah” Viking burial cloth propaganda offensive was one manifestation of what Qaisar Mahmood and others like him are doing. There is no Muslim history in Sweden, but Qaisar Mahmood is working to change the very idea of cultural heritage and fabricate fictions about a historical Muslim presence in Sweden in order to advance his political and sociological agenda.

Qaisar Mahmood, as a Pakistani, of course has no Swedish heritage of his own. His admitted lack of knowledge of Swedish heritage and history ought to have disqualified him from his position, but this is how Sweden is obliterating itself and committing cultural and national suicide. After all, Swedes appointed Qaisar Mahmood to this position. It is Swedish leaders who want to destroy Swedish cultural and national identity.

It also must be remembered in connection with Qaisar Mahmood’s role as head of the Swedish National Heritage Board that the Qur’an suggests that ruins are a sign of Allah’s punishment of those who rejected his truth: “Many were the Ways of Life that have passed away before you: travel through the earth, and see what was the end of those who rejected Truth.” (3:137)

This is one of the foundations of the Islamic idea that pre-Islamic civilizations, and non-Islamic civilizations, are all jahiliyya — the society of unbelievers, which is worthless. Obviously this cuts against the idea of tourism of ancient sites and non-Muslim religious installations such as are found all over Sweden.

  1. S. Naipaul encountered this attitude in his travels through Muslim countries. For many Muslims, he observed in Among the Believers, “The time before Islam is a time of blackness: that is part of Muslim theology. History has to serve theology.” Naipaul recounted that some Pakistani Muslims, far from valuing the nation’s renowned archaeological site at Mohenjo Daro, saw its ruins as a teaching opportunity for Islam, recommending that Qur’an 3:137 be posted there as a teaching tool.

It does lead one to ponder what Qaisar Mahmood might allow to be done, or not done, with Sweden’s historical sites and artifacts. But whatever destruction may ensue is, obviously, what Swedish authorities want.


Basler Zeitung. 2018-02-15. Armes, dummes Schweden

Die schwedische Regierung leugnet das krachende Scheitern der Integration. In Städten bildeten sich unterdessen rechtsfreie No-Go-Zonen.

*

Aus Schweden stammen Ikea, Abba und Pippi Langstrumpf, auf der ganzen Welt geliebte Brands. Ebenso erfolgreich, wäre es nur nach dem Willen der Erfinder gegangen, hätte auch eine andere schwedische Idee werden sollen: die Öffnung des «Folkhemmet», des sozialdemokratischen Wohlfahrtsmodells «Volksheim» für Geflüchtete und Beladene aus der ganzen Welt. Das kulturell homogene Schweden sollte multikulturell werden, hatte vor rund vierzig Jahren dessen politische Elite beschlossen, und die Grenzen weit geöffnet.

Die dankbaren Neubürger würden bald die Tugenden der wackeren, arbeitsamen und etwas langweiligen Nordländer übernehmen, und Schweden würde als «humanitäre Grossmacht» und Modell einer ethnisch-religiös kunterbunten, aber trotzdem friedlichen und fürsorglichen Gesellschaft den restlichen Nationen den Weg leuchten. So die Träume der stolzen Sozialingenieure. Es kam anders.

Multikulturelles Nirwana

In Städten bildeten sich rechtsfreie No-Go-Zonen, wo sich Migranten-Gangs mit automatischen Waffen und Handgranaten bekriegen. Gewaltkriminalität, auch islamisch motivierte, nimmt kontinuierlich zu, besonders stark aber sexuelle Gewalt und mit ihr der Tatbestand der Gruppenvergewaltigung. Migranten der ersten und zweiten Generation, insbesondere aus Nordafrika und Nahost, sind in allen Sparten überproportional vertreten.

Das polit-mediale Establishment leugnet das krachende Scheitern der Integration und verfolgt unbeirrbar ihr quasi-religiöses Projekt eines postnationalen, postreligiösen, multikulturellen Nirwanas. Wie ernst man es meint, zeigt eine jüngste Personalie. Zum neuen Direktor von Schwedens Nationalem Amt für Kulturerbe wurde der 44-jährige Muslim Qaisar Mahmood gewählt. Der gebürtige Pakistani ist jetzt oberster Verantwortlicher für die Erhaltung von Schwedens historischer Seele: von Wikinger-Gräbern, Runen, mittelalterlichen Kirchen, Volkstrachten. Mahmood hat Soziologie studiert, war Integrationsbeamter, schrieb Aufsätze über «Diversität», hat aber, wie er sagt, noch nie ein Buch über Archäologie oder Kulturerbe gelesen.

Wer einen solchen Personalentscheid anordnet oder zulässt, hat eine kulturelle Todessehnsucht. Armes, dummes Schweden.
