Germany: Dispute in the train -- African men attack travellers

A physical confrontation between a previously unknown traveller and an equally unknown group of three people took place on Friday afternoon (15 June) in a regional train between Ulm and Ehingen. According to initial findings, the participants initially clashed verbally at about 3:45 p.m., after the traveller asked the group to be a little quieter. According to witnesses, one of the men is said to have grabbed the traveller's face and pressed him to the window, which is why there was apparently a scuffle between all those involved. Through the intervention of uninvolved witnesses, the group of persons could be withdrawn from the traveller. The alleged perpetrators, who according to witnesses were men between 25 and 35 years old African phenotypes, fled the train at Blaubeuren station. One of them wore a blue T-shirt, a blue beret as well as a conspicuously many golden necklaces and a golden bracelet. The second suspect wore a blue T-shirt, a blue bracelet and a red baseball cap, while the third was dressed in a yellow T-shirt and yellow shoes. The unknown traveller is also said to have been between 25 and 35 years old and to have worn a purple T-shirt, beige riding trousers and black riding boots. In this context, the Federal Police is looking for further witnesses, in particular the injured traveler. Relevant information can be obtained by calling +49731140870.

Dresden Central Station: Afghans and Iraqis beat up a train driver

On Friday evening, 15 June, around 7 p.m., the train driver of the S-Bahn noticed heavy crowds at a wagon door after entering Dresden's main station. A vocal battle of words was also audible. The engineer hurried to the scene and noticed that a group of six people were pushing and pressing, forcibly making their way from the car to the platform. A 20-year-old now wanted to return to the train with the same brutal method, which was prevented by the train driver. Since the young man from Afghanistan did not comply with the train driver's verbal requests, the train driver pulled him out of the train. The 20-year-old hits the driver in the face. The 54-year-old injured person suffered minor injuries to the eye. A 17-year-old Iraqi from this group of people supported the 20-year-old and also hit the train driver, who fell as a result. Afterwards, both persons fled the main station in the direction of the city centre. Federal police were able to find the perpetrators at the Dresden-Nord tram stop. Both persons showed themselves physically and verbally aggressive against the officers and had to be tied up. During this and the subsequent criminal proceedings, the two young men insulted the officials with defamatory words. The other persons of the group were also found in the vicinity of the main station. A small amount of narcotics was also found and seized from a 20-year-old Afghan. Investigations have been initiated for personal injury, dangerous bodily injury, insult, trespassing, obtaining benefits and damage to property. To further clarify the events, the federal police are asking for witnesses' information. In particular, potential further injured parties standing directly in or at the S-Bahn are requested to report. The Federal Police Dresden will accept all information under the phone number 0351 / 81 50 20.

“Immigration is causing higher crime, culture-shift” -President Trump

The people of Germany are turning against their leadership as migration is rocking the already tenuous Berlin coalition. Crime in Germany is way up. Big mistake made all over Europe in allowing millions of people in who have so strongly and violently changed their culture!

Austria: Muslim migrant murders elderly couple to make an example of supporters of anti-migration party

“To the police he had stated as his motive that he wanted to make an example of supporters of the FPÖ, by which he felt discriminated against as a foreigner and Muslim.”
Appeasement and cowardice are so universal today that this will probably lead many people to say, “Why, then we must not support the FPÖ, and have to get behind unvetted, unrestricted Muslim migration, because otherwise we will anger them, and they will kill innocent people.” After all, that’s the reasoning that kept the U.S. Embassy out of Jerusalem for twenty years, isn’t it?
“Married couple: IS sympathizer in Linz in court,” translated from “Ehepaar ermordet: IS-Sympathisant in Linz vor Gericht,” Die Presse, June 18, 2018 (thanks to Antonia):
A 55-year-old is said to have killed an elderly couple last year in Linz. Now he is in court. The “Islamic State” is “the right path, the right policy,” says the Tunisian.
A 55-year-old Tunisian had to appear on Monday in the Regional Court of Linz, because in June 2017, he killed an elderly couple and then set fire to their house.
He was determined to have a paranoid personality disorder, but he was deemed sane and largely confessed at the beginning of the trial.
The well-dressed defendant appeared with four guards in balaclavas and bulletproof vests. The whole process – scheduled for three days – took place under increased safety regulations. Cell phones and laptops had to be handed over. The accused – he has no criminal record – had a torn sack of toilet paper rolls, a tattered box of handwritten notes, and a box saying, “It’s all lies and lies, they all know that (sic!) they’re lying, and because the judiciary is independent in our country” – with the “in” crossed out.
Defendant confessed
The Tunisian, who has been living in Austria for a long time, is married to his partner in accordance with Islamic law and helped out in their organic food business. He frankly admitted to the two murders he had committed, including pouring and igniting gasoline on the victims, and admitted also to Islamist postings. On the charges of the court regarding the homicides he said only, with no apparent emotion, “true.” To the police he had stated as his motive that he wanted to make an example of supporters of the FPÖ, by which he felt discriminated against as a foreigner and Muslim. He regularly delivered food from his partner’s business to the victims; he might have suspected a – non-existent – close relationship with the Blues. The prosecution charges him with murder, attempted arson, membership in a terrorist or criminal organization and – because of an incident in the prison – being a dangerous threat to society….
There had also been an incident in custody: the Tunisian went on a hunger strike from 11 to 26 August because he did not want to accept anything from the Republic of Austria. When he finished the strike, he was given halal beef liver cheeses, but was convinced that it was pork. Therefore, he is said to have insulted and threatened a jailer: “You and your family will think of me every night, you know why I’m here,” he is reported to have said….
At first, the defendant apologized briefly to relatives of the victims….”Allahu Akbar,” he said three times aloud, and an Arabic sentence, the entire statement was “Allah is greater and remains forever,” over and over.

90-year-old German woman sexually assaulted by asylum seeker in her bed

The asylum seeker is accused of having entered the room of a 90-year-old woman on the morning of the 26th of May 2018 in a nursing home in Wendlingen. There he is said to have sexually assaulted the sleeping elderly woman.
When she woke up and fended off the man, he tried to pull the wedding ring from her finger. When this failed, he let go of her and took a flat screen TV.
The alarmed staffs immediately pursued the suspect and were able to take a picture of him. After a police investigation the man was identified and arrested.
The Gambian was presented to the magistrate at the Stuttgart district court on Friday afternoon and was put into a correctional facility until his trial.

Turkish Government Buses Bulgarian Turks Back to Bulgaria to Vote as Ex-Pats

In the lead-up to June 24 Turkish elections, the Erdoğan government is reportedly sending busloads of Bulgarian Turks to Bulgaria to vote as ex-pats, raising suspicions of voter fraud through double voting.

With the hotly contested Turkish elections just around the corner, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has been holding election rallies and making fiercely passionate speeches. In mid-April, Erdoğan called for snap elections for June 24, alleging that economic challenges and the war in Syria meant Turkey must switch quickly to the powerful executive presidency that will go into effect after the vote.Bulgarian public television has released footage of busloads of Turkish nationals of Bulgarian origin coming to their country of birth to vote early in the 24 June elections.
A June 14 article in Euractiv suggests that the Turkish president is likely sending his supporters into Bulgaria so they can vote twice, “which would constitute election fraud.”
When interviewed, one elderly man who came into Bulgaria on one of the Turkish voter buses declared his loyalty to President Erdoğan. Although Turkey does not allow people to vote twice in the country, it does hold provisions allowing expatriates to vote abroad.
In July 2016, an attempted coup d’etat by members of the Turkish military failed to overthrow President Erdoğan. As shots rang out in Istanbul and Ankara, Turkish fighter jets bombed Parliament while officer Hulusi Akar was kidnapped.
Counter-coup activists, taking to the streets armed with household objects, defeated the coup with the help of sympathetic soldiers and police. Over 250 people lost their lives during the conflict, which Erdoğan used to tighten his iron grip on Turkey.
Authorities have held Turkish expatriate Fethullah Gulen responsible for the coup, and Erdoğan has since spoken at numerous rallies, berating the rebels as “traitors” whose heads he wished to “rip off.” Erdoğan’s revenge was swift and far-reaching, including arrests of more than 50,000 military and government officials in the coup’s aftermath. He also moved to silence his opponents by breaking up dozens of Turkish media outlets.
A July 2017 article in the CyprusMail Online accused Erdoğan’s Turkey of “stumbling toward something approaching dictatorship” and proposed that the president was using the failed attempt to expand his “witch hunt” against political enemies. Erdoğan has hailed the failed coup as a “gift from God.”
Erdoğan’s fiery rhetoric and power grab has won him enemies, such as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who has slammed him for hypocrisy. Netanyahu tweeted that Erdogan “should get used to” being answered back to when he—the one who invaded Cyprus—demonizes Israel as a “terrorist” state.
While most observers expect Erdoğan to easily win the June 24 vote, seemingly desperate moves such as busing voters to Bulgaria suggest that the president himself is not so sure.

Next terrible bloody deed in Germany: Half naked girl's body found in front of primary school

Another atrocious bloody deed shocks Germany: the body of a girl was found in Barsinghausen near Hanover in Lower Saxony on Sunday. According to current information, the 16-year-old was the victim of a violent crime. According to an unconfirmed media report, the dead woman was found half naked and covered in blood with head injuries. A particularly explosive finding was that a female body had already been discovered in April not far from the site. The girl's body was found on Sunday afternoon around 2 pm near the Adolf-Grimme primary school in Barsinghausen-Hanover by passers-by. The girl had probably been killed in the night on Sunday or in the early morning hours. The dead girl is said to be 16 years old and lived only a few hundred meters from where the body was found. The victim is said to have been on foot on his way home during the night, when contact with acquaintances is said to have broken off at about 1.30 a.m.. For the time being, the police did not give any information on the identity of the victim or the cause of death "for tactical reasons". The girl's body was lying directly on the meadow in front of the primary school, but a little off in a shady area on a hedge, as the daily newspaper "Hannoversche Allgemeine" reported. According to the report, the dead girl was found half naked and covered in blood with head injuries. The body of a 55-year-old woman had already been found not far from where it was found in April. The autopsy revealed that the woman had been killed. So far, there's been no sign of the perpetrator. "We'll see if there's a connection between the two crimes," a police spokeswoman said on Monday.

Is Trump Pivoting East in Europe?

by Alex Alexiev

As Trump haters are having yet another field day on account of his ostensible faux pas at the G-7 meeting in Canada, and leftist pundits fall over each other screaming that Trump has no strategic vision, as others just as self-assuredly accuse him of planning to “break the West,” which, on the face of it, requires plenty of strategic vision. While this silliness continues to rapidly declining effect, there are now signs that the White House is putting together a robust strategy in Europe that was missing until now.
It comes in the shape of A. Wess Mitchell, who was just appointed the point man at the State Department for Europe and Eurasia. The significance of this appointment, which was missed in the cacophony of anti-Trump perorations, was much on display at the very first programmatic speech he gave last week at the Heritage Foundation. Before delving into the speech, a couple of words about his background, which is important part of his appointment. Mitchell is a bona fide expert on Eastern Europe with three books to his credit and, more importantly, the long-term leader of CEPA (Center for European Policy Analysis), the only Washington think tank dedicated to the study of Eastern Europe.
Mitchell started his speech with a ringing endorsement of the Western alliance and the civilization undergirding it, which guaranteed “democracy, individual liberty and the rule of law.” But he also noted that the West collectively is “under-prepared” for its defense. There are a number of reasons for that, including the dismal legacy the Trump administration inherited from President Obama with its failed reset of relations with Russia, conflict in Ukraine, policy failure in Syria, and the largest ever Muslim migration to Europe.
But, more importantly, Mitchell underscored, preserving the West cannot happen without a strong and free Europe, which is a vital interest of the United States.  And here he did not diplomatically avoid naming names and identifying problems. It is Russia and China who “want to break the West,” he said and EU allies (read Western Europe) who are showing insufficient willingness to “defend their own continent.” He further singled out specific European policies that the U.S. consider counterproductive -- the Nord Stream 2 pipeline and the Iran agreement. The first one is clearly directed against the interests of Eastern Europe and will benefit Russia’s monopolistic gas hegemony and make NATO’s eastern flank more vulnerable. Though Mitchell did not say it, Germany is the clear culprit here, as the above well-documented CEPA study proves. The Iran agreement, which is still supported by the EU even after the U.S. pulled out of it, allowed the expansion of Teheran’s influence to the borders of Israel, the largest such expansion since antiquity, Mitchell noted, and represents a clear danger for the West in Washington’s view.
Mitchell did not dwell on the current background of the alliance’s politics, but there is no doubt that it was a motivating factor for this groundbreaking policy statement. And that background includes the flat-out refusal by Germany to commit to spending 2% of GDP on defense, except in the very distant future, which makes the largest economy in Europe a consumer, rather than a contributor to collective security.  Compare this attitude to the enthusiastic support for NATO’s role by nine Eastern European countries (known as the Bucharest 9) which met in Warsaw, as Mitchell was speaking, and endorsed a greater role for the alliance in the East. It is this clear and widening fault line that has prompted numerous pundits to speculate that Trump may be pivoting to the East in Europe, while others have interpreted it as a declaration of war on Russia.
There are other pregnant developments on the old continent that cannot but affect the cohesion of the Atlantic alliance -- from Italy’s new Eurosceptic government closing its harbors to migrant vessels to a fundamental and widening conflict over immigration by the two ruling parties, the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), and the Christian Social Union (CSU) in Germany. The CSU, which is Bavaria-based, wants to turn back migrants at the border, while Chancellor Angela Merkel, who is to blame for the migrant debacle, is doing everything possible to avoid that and thus admit that she was wrong all along. It may be a long shot, but a turn to the right in Germany, may be the best news for Trump and NATO yet.
