MICHAEL OBERNDORF – INTERESTING TIMES

Interesting Times

It is said that there’s an old Chinese curse, “May you live in interesting times”, wherein “interesting” appears to be sarcastically ironic. Well, folks, I can’t speak for anyone else, but as I look around each day, I cannot help but conclude that we are, indeed, living in “interesting times”.

China, on many levels, second only to the United States, has performed the Great Leap Forward that Mao dreamed of, but since he was a raging, dogmatic communist, couldn’t pull off. They’ve gone from a Third World, blatant, heavy handed, rigidly communist police state to a First World, semi-capitalist, relatively free – the police presence is still very much there, but is toned way down – world power. However, what has never changed with the Chinese, for some 5,000 years, is the certainty that they are the rightful rulers of the world. They now have the economic, technical, and military wealth to move aggressively toward that goal, and are doing so at a disturbingly rapid pace.

Russia, while no longer the Number 2 Superpower in the world, is still a potential hostile and bellicose force to be reckoned with. Their new alliances in the Middle East, made during the American presidencies of two far leftists – Clinton and Obama – and a die-hard globalist – Bush – have wreaked havoc with the balance of power there. They have been saber rattling all along their borders with Eastern Europe, threatening to take back the subject states that were freed when the Soviet Union collapsed. Indeed, the Crimea has been re-subjugated and the Russian military has interfered in Ukraine directly. During the Obama administration, Russian warplanes, ships, and submarines were often reported at, or within, our air and sea territorial boundaries.

Iran, thanks to the outrageous submission of Obama – an apostate or closet Muslim – is on the verge of developing useable nuclear weapons. They have been a well-known state sponsor of terrorism, supplying money, weapons, and expertise to jihadists and militant Islamists all over the world. Obama removed the sanctions we had placed on them, unfroze their assets, showered them with billions of dollars, and virtually required nothing from them in return. The result has been a resurgence of support for worldwide Islamic terrorism, and an escalating stream of threats from the mullahs in Tehran. It is thought the at least some of the rumored missing “suitcase” tactical nukes that disappeared from Russia at the end of the Cold War ended up in Iran. Their threats to “destroy all you possess” in the “Mother of All Wars” suggests that while they may not have full-blown nukes, they may have the capability of creating an EMP attack, launched from commercial vessels at sea.

The Islamic invasion of Europe, aided and abetted by leftist/globalist European governments has raised, too, the very the possible collapse of Germany, France, Britain, and the Scandinavian countries. The poorest nations in the world are Islamic and Europe seems hell-bent on joining them.

Here at home in the Good Ol’ USA, the left has gone into an insane panic and a violent rampage over the re-emergence of American pride, the election of Donald Trump as president, and his remarkable and undeniable success in undoing much of the damage done by Obama over the past eight years. On Capitol Hill, the leftist Democrat Party has become openly “socialist”, encouraging the violence from their shrinking base, very reminiscent of the National Socialist German Nazis in the late 1930s. They’ve been colluding with the RINO Republican misleadership to block and undermine Trump as he works to Make America Great Again. This communist/fascist alliance is also aiding and abetting a criminal invasion of America by foreigners, one that is aimed at destroying traditional American culture and capitalism by overloading it with ignorant, uneducated, unskilled cheap laborers who have no understanding of our Constitution nor loyalty to our laws, or systems of government and economics.

These are just the most obvious examples of the apparent slide into turmoil that is occurring all over the world. Many more localized, but equally disturbing examples could be cited, but I’m sure your get the idea.

All this, to me, adds up to nothing less than “interesting times”. We’ve had them before, and America has, so far, survived. As with Britain which had Winston Churchill during WWll, we have Donald Trump. In spite of the constant denigrating attacks from the leftist propaganda machine – aka, the “mainstream” media – and Democrat seditionist politicians like Adam Schiff and Maxine Waters, Trump is proving himself to be one of the most competent and extraordinary presidents in history of the nation. He has not failed yet and I, for one, trust him implicitly. If anyone can bring America through these “interesting times”, he can. And I, like millions of other real, patriotic Americans, will support him in every way I can.

NATO ONE STEP CLOSER TO HEAVING TURKEY OUT

The Muslim Brotherhood Jihadist ruling Turkey has gone to far.  NATO members are serupticiously holding talks on heaving this murder out of the organization. Blaming the United States for the attempted coup, all the while accusing us of harboring Fethullah Gulen have caused a major schism in our relationship. He is sought by the Turkish government for alleged involvement in the 2016 coup attempt.  Additionally, there is no love for Israel as this Napoleon complex diminutive can’t get over the controversial and war like provoking  Mavi Marmara incident. Realpolitik played a part in Israel’s latent response and regret of the incident. Note that Obama put the proverbial gun to Netanyahu’s head.

NATO in the past has looked the other way when it was to their advantage, Turkey is strategically located enabling NATO and the U.S. coalition to use Turkish airspace; Turkey needs to be fore warned that their place in history will be dictated by their actions against the NATO countries and their diplomatic transgressions. In the latest act of incitement Erdogan spews from his rabid mouth that Israel is “playing with fire” concerning their actions on the Temple Mount.  However, Erdogan fails to mention the real crime against humanity is the actions regarding the Hagia Sophia. Once the center of Eastern Christendom, Constantinople competed with Rome.

From the date of its construction in 537 until 1453, it served as a Greek Orthodox cathedral and seat of the Patriarch of Constantinople, except between 1204 and 1261, when it was converted to a Roman Catholic cathedral under the Latin Empire. The building was a mosque from 29 May 1453 until 1931. It was then secularized and opened as a museum on 1 February 1935.Hagia Sophia Mars 2013.jpg

In 1453, Constantinople was conquered by the Ottoman Turks under Sultan Mehmed II, who ordered this main church of Orthodox Christianity converted into a mosque. By that point, the church had fallen into a state of disrepair. Nevertheless, the Christian cathedral made a strong impression on the new Ottoman rulers and they decided to convert it into a mosque. The bells, altar, iconostasis, and sacrificial vessels and other relics were removed and the mosaicsdepicting Jesus, his Mother Mary, Christian saints and angels were also removed or plastered over. Islamic features—such as the mihrabminbar, and four minarets—were added. It remained a mosque until 1931, when it was closed to the public for four years. It was re-opened in 1935 as a museum by the Republic of Turkey. Hagia Sophia is currently (2014) the second-most visited museum in Turkey, attracting almost 3.3 million visitors annually.

Before the world pays attention to this Turkish imbecile they must demand that the Hagia Sophia be restored to its rightful place in history. It is noteworthy to remind those Christians that Turkey once 100% Christian is now outnumbered by Muslims, 80,000,000 to less than 200,000. this is a manifestation of the treatment Christians receive in the Muslim world.

Currently and subsequent to the defeat of ISIS in Syria and Iraq, Erdogan has gone on the warpath against the Kurds. Especially in Syria does he have little tolerance for a Kurdish enclave on its border. The foaming at the mouth war monger is intent on crushing any kind of Kurdish control of territory, be it in Turkey, Syria or Iraq.  U.S. backing for the Kurdish YPG fighters in Syria has infuriated Turkey, which views their growing battlefield strength as a security threat due to a decades-old insurgency by the Kurdish PKK within in its borders.

In an August 2017 interview Erdogan said, “We will not leave the separatist organization in peace in both Iraq and Syria,” Erdogan said in a speech on Saturday in the eastern town of Malatya, referring to the YPG in Syria and PKK bases in Iraq. “We know that if we do not drain the swamp, we cannot get rid of flies.”

The YPG denies Turkish allegations of links with Kurdish militants inside Turkey, saying it is only interested in self-rule in Syria and warning that any Turkish assault will draw its fighters away from the battle against Islamic State which they are waging in an alliance with local Arab forces.

Erdogan’s comments follow the appointment of three new leaders of Turkey’s army, air force and navy last week – moves which analysts and officials said were at least partly aimed at preparing for any campaign against the YPG militia.

Turkish forces swept into north Syria last year to seize territory from Islamic State, while also cutting off Kurdish-controlled northeast Syria from the Kurdish pocket of Afrin further west. They thereby prevented Kurdish control over almost the whole sweep of the border – Ankara’s worst-case scenario.

Ankara considers the YPG an extension of the PKK, which is designated a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States and European Union.

Can Kasapoglu, a defense analyst at the Istanbul-based Center for Economics and Foreign Policy Studies (EDAM), said the YPG “remains at the epicenter of Turkey’s threat perception”.

However, the cuddling up to Iran and Russia maybe the straw that broke the camel’s back. Erdogan has gone too far. NATO is alarmed at the new Turkish posture; they are now considering booting Islamic Turkey from their association. Why defend Turkey if attacked? That is the question.

Russia, Turkey and Iran will hold summit talks on Syria next week as Ankara threatens a possible attack on U.S.-allied Kurdish forces and tensions rise between Moscow and Washington over the future of the war-torn state.

Russian President Vladimir Putin will host his Turkish and Iranian counterparts, Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Hassan Rouhani, on Nov. 22 in the Black Sea resort of Sochi to discuss Syria and regional developments, Turkey’s state-run Anadolu news service said Thursday. The three powers are key players in Syria, where they’ve spearheaded a cease-fire initiative and are now cooperating on a political settlement.

KURDS GO TO THE POLLS TOMORROW

A new day for the Kurdish Independent movement starts tomorrow. Voting for independence is a long time coming. The Kurds, numbering 30 million have been subjugated to the likes or dislikes of their home countries over the past centuries; Syria, Iraq, Iran, Turkey are now coming face to face with the grave divisional error of the Sykes-Picot agreement ending WWI.

The Kurds

An ethnographic map of Eastern Turkey after WW1

As originally cast, Sykes-Picot allocated part of Northern Kurdistan and a substantial part of the Mosul vilayet including the city of Mosul to France in area B, Russia obtained Bitlis and Van in Northern Kurdistan (the contemplated Arab State included Kurds in its Eastern limit split between A and B areas). Bowman says there were around 2.5 million Kurds in Turkey, mainly in the mountain region called Kurdistan. The Kurdish Peoples doesnt have any own State since the fall of the Zand dynasty

Partitioning of Ottoman Turkey according to the aborted Treaty of Sèvres

Sharif Pasha presented a “Memorandum on the Claims of the Kurd People” to the Paris peace Conference in 1919 and the suppressed report of the King-Crane Commission also recommended a form of autonomy in“the natural geographical area which lies between the proposed Armenia on the north and Mesopotamia on the south, with the divide between the Euphrates and the Tigris as the western boundary, and the Persian frontier as the eastern boundary.”

The subsequent Treaty of Sevres potentially provided for a Kurdish territory subject to a referendum and League of Nations sanction within a year of the treaty. However the Turkish War of Independence led to the treaty being superseded by the Treaty of Lausanne in which there was no provision for a Kurdish State.

The end result was that the Kurds were included in the territories of Turkey, Iraq, Syria and Iran.

Tens of thousands packed a rally in Erbil’s stadium on Friday, waving a sea of Kurdish flags. Among them were also Israeli flags, a display of affection for the one country that has openly supported the referendum.

Some Kurds say this moment is their 1948 – a reference to Israel’s declaration of independence. They see the challenges Israel faced in its early years as similar to the problems their region now faces.

Iran, Turkey, the Iraqi government in Baghdad, the US, UK, the UN and many other countries have pressured the Kurdish leadership to cancel or postpone the vote. Even up to the eleventh hour the pressure continues, with the UN Security Council expressing concern about the vote and US presidential envoy for the coalition to counter the Islamic State Brett McGurk encouraging Barzani to reconsider.

“There is no Iraq, it is a militia state,” says Hussein Yazdanpanah, a leader of the Kurdistan Freedom Party (PAK), who serves a front line commander northwest of Kirkuk.

Yazdanpanah’s Peshmerga soldiers are Iranian Kurds who oppose the regime at home and have come to the Kurdish region of Iraq to fight alongside their comrades against the common threat of the Islamic State. His men have been holding a front line for three years on a line of dusty hills that overlooks Hawija, where the Iraqi army launched an offensive on September 20.

“Iran, Iraq and Turkey do propaganda against the referendum,” he says, sitting in a chair that overlooks the flat plains around Kirkuk. “Kurdistan has enemies, but also friends. The most important thing you see here is that we have all the minorities and ethnicities [and they] want a referendum. Kurds decided not to stay with this country [Iraq] which has discrimination and inequality.”

SUPPORT THE KURDISH INDEPENDENCE MOVEMENT

The bully diminutive Erdogan running Turkey has been flying to close to the sun of late.  His accusations have developed an anti-American thrall across Anatolia. The hyperbolic diatribe spewing out of the mouth of this wannabee dictator is a cause of concern to NATO. Europe has long been aware of Turkey’s anti European Union policies which are tantamount to treason. So far the United States has not taken an intransigent view of Turkey’s blustering when a hard stance is in order.

Turkey, if you recall was the heart of Eastern Christendom a thousand plus years ago. Constantinople was the center of Eastern Orthodoxy. From the mid-5th century to the early 13th century, Constantinople was the largest and wealthiest city in Europe and it was instrumental in the advancement of Christianity during Roman and Byzantine times as the home of the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople and as the guardian of Christendom’s holiest relics such as the Crown of Thorns and the True Cross. After the final loss of its provinces in the early 15th century, the Byzantine Empire was reduced to just Constantinople and its environs and the city eventually fell to the Ottomans after a month-long siege in 1453.

Long running feuds aside, the time has come to take sides. Is Turkey in or out? The only answer here is OUT. Turkey has accused the United States of complicity in the most recent coup d etat which attempted to over through Erdogan. Turkey has blamed us for harboring Fethullah Gulen, once a friend of Erdogan, but now seen as a treacherous enemy; believed to be directing his followers from his Pennsylvania enclave. Erdogan has the chutzpah in ordering the United States to turn Gulen over. Once in Turkey Gulen will face the hang man’s noose or more precisely Erdogan’s sword for beheading.

Turkey has inflamed the European Union (EU) with its dictatorial posture, but most of all its lack of respect for Democracy. Since the coup the diminutive wannabee Napoleon puke has rounded up a half a million of what he believes, were members of the coup and anti government. Beside these roundups 200 news organizations have been shut down. Currently there are no opposing news organizations.

However, the mother of all eruptions is close at hand. Support for an independence Kurdistan is growing across all of the main venues. Even Israel is pressing for Kurdish independence. The Kurds are the majority population in the autonomous region of Iraqi Kurdistan, and are a significant minority group in the neighboring countries of Turkey, Iran, and Syria, where Kurdish nationalist movements continue to pursue greater autonomy and cultural rights. In total the Kurds number approximately 30,000,000. The time has come for them to have a country of their own.

On September 25 a plebiscite will take place in the Kurdistan region of Iraq.

Councillors in the Iraqi province of Kirkuk have voted to take part in next month’s Kurdish independence referendum in a session, however, that was boycotted by Turkmen and Arab members. The central government in Baghdad is strongly opposed to Iraqi Kurdistan’s planned September 25 referendum, which is non-binding but could lead to independence. Kirkuk, an ethnically-mixed oil-rich province, is not part of the Kurdistan region but has a large Kurdish population.

Having an Independent Kurdish state is very worrisome for the diminutive Erdogan who will continue to fight against the Kurds at all costs. Erdogan sees the Kurds as an existential threat to his authoritative rule.  In Turkey, there are 14 million Kurds, many of whom are well-integrated into the political and economic life of the country, but many others who remain alienated. Religious Kurds have been an important and reliable constituency for the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP). There is also the People’s Democratic Party, or HDP, whose leader Selahattin Demirtas has made a big splash among Western observers for his alleged liberalism. The AKP has sought to portray the HDP and Demirtas as no different from the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) that has been waging a war on Turkey since the mid-1980s. Click here for a more detailed analysis of the ins and outs of the Kurdish relationships within Syria, Iraq and Turkey.

Peshmerga, which means, “those who face death,” is the military of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and Iraqi Kurdistan. Their existence dates back to the mid-20th Century when Mustafa Barzani picked up arms to fight for Kurdistan autonomy.

But the tradition of a guerrilla resistance force fighting for Kurdish autonomy goes back to the origins of the Kurdish people. Because the land area has always been subject to regional and major powers vying for dominance, a resistance force always emerged as they took refuge in the mountains.

Up against much greater forces in the Iraqi Army and Air Force, the Peshmerga was not successful until after the 1990-1991 Gulf War when the U.S. and U.K. enforced a no-fly zone in the North of Iraq.

After the Kurdistan Regional Government was established, the Peshmerga officially became the armed forces and responsible for the security of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.

Originally, the Peshmerga was led by Mustafa Barzani, the head of the Kurdish Democratic Party (KDP), but in the aftermath of another failed revolt, which resulted in the defeat of the Peshmerga by Iraqi forces in the mid-1970’s, the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) arose and formed their own Peshmerga.

The ideological split along both tribal (Barzani family) and political (PUK is more progressive and liberal) lines divided Kurds, and eventually led to the Kurdish Civil War of the 1990’s. During the Civil War, the Peshmerga took sides and opposing forces were responsible for Kurds killing and maiming other Kurds. It ended when KDP’s Head, Massoud Barzani, signed a peace treaty with the PUK Head, Jalal Talibani.

According to the 1992 Constitution of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), the President of Kurdistan is the Commander-in-Chief of the Peshmerga Armed Forces.[1] In an effort to unite against the Islamic State in August 2014, KRG President Massoud Barzani issued orders to the Ministry of Peshmerga Affairs to reform the Peshmerga under a unified single command structure.

The bottom line here comes down to the diminutive Erdogan who may up the ante and pick a fight with the Peshmerga on the Syrian border. This will cause a rift with the United States, although the United States hasn’t jumped into the fray hook line and sinker. But the battle we hope will not come is on our door step and can’t be denied. For the United States the battle lines are clear; boot Turkey from NATO before we suffer more humiliation from the the diminutive Erdogan.

Turkey is against the United States, the Kurds are for the United States. 

MOHAMMAD STRIKES AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN – NO ONE IS SAFE FROM DAESH

Until the last Mohammad is put to death no one is exempt from the terrorism of the savage Islamist. Global Jihadist can strike at any moment and anywhere; no one is safe. Long held beliefs that the West is responsible (Christianity) for their predicament and Jews are the Satanic Devils as taught in Madrassas .  BANGLADESH the most recent target of Islamic wrath -seems you can’t take the BANG out of Bangladesh. 

Among the dead from Friday’s attack, the police said, were nine Italians, seven Japanese, two Bangladeshis, one American and one Indian.

The attack also suggests that Bangladesh’s militant networks are internationalizing, a key concern as the United States seeks to contain the growth of the Islamic State.

But wait, Iraq is never out of the news. The 4th of July came a day early to Shia. Bombs away in Baghdad.

DEADLY DAY IN BAGHDAD

IS bombing kills 125 in Baghdad

At least 125 people are killed and many more injured in an explosion claimed by the Islamic State group in Baghdad, Iraqi police say.

MIDDLE EAST

BAGHDAD: At least 91 killed, 170 wounded in separate bombings across Iraqi capital

The deadliest attack took place in the central Karada district of Baghdad, where a suicide bomber blew up his explosives-laded pickup truck outside a crowded shopping center, killing at least 86 people and wounding up to 170 others, according to a police officer. He said the dead included 15 children, 10 women and six policemen.

ISIS cannibals wreck havoc across the globe continuing their attacks against those who don’t follow Sharia Law. 

IMAM – “GAYS MUST BE KILLED OUT OF COMPASSION”

FROM  pjmedia.com 

Time for the LGBT community to wake up to the threat brought on by the Obama/Clinton Axis. The are responsible for saturating our communities with mosques (masjids) plus welcoming in millions of Islamic terrorists into America. These ISIS commandos are the enemy of the LGBT Rainbow Coalition. Time for them to wake up to this existential threat that they are now facing in the Heart Land of America. 

All gays must be killed out of compassion.”

A RELIGION OF PEACE

Truck bomb takes out 50 in Baghdad. ISIS takes credit. Of course Islam is a religion of peace. Don’t tell us that they don’t worship the same GOD. ISIS controls large swaths of Iraq and neighboring Syria. According to United Nations figures, at least 670 Iraqis were killed last month due to ongoing violence, of whom about two-thirds were civilians. Obama relishes this kind of mass murder; why else does he stand by watching from the sidelines.?

TRADITIONS BY MICHAEL OBERNDORF

Traditions

Traditionally – and I use this term, even though tradition has become a dirty word to the left – traditionally, when your economy is going south on you, or there is political unrest at home that threatens to remove you from power, traditionally, those in power start a war. We have seen this happen time and time again throughout history, all over the world. We are very likely to see it again. Soon.

The Ayatollah al Obozo and his unindicted co-conspirators in his administration and the corrupt, parasitic institution that is Congress, have managed to set the world back, peacewise, to a time that resembles the days leading up to damn near every war in recorded history. Their meddling in the Middle East has created massive instability that has allowed insanely zealous barbarians like ISIS to arise and metastasize in an epidemic worse than Ebola. Meanwhile, as both Russia and China have thrown caution to the wind and have been going full speed ahead with military improvement and expansion, al Obozo has been hell-bent on cutting and demoralizing ours. Traditionally, Obozo’s actions are called treason, but as the late, great Barry Goldwater said, none dare call it that.

So, while the Chinese make public statements that they are not afraid of having a war with us, and have their subs shadowing our aircraft carriers, and while the Russians hurl snarky insults at al Obozo as they violate the arms treaty and execute new tests of their nuke delivery missiles, and their nuclear bombers buzz our ships and cruise our coastlines, how does the Fraud in the Rainbow House react? By proving himself to be the Great Prevaricator, the Liar-in-Chief, and putting boots on the ground again in Iraq. Yikes!

The treasonous deal with Iran, brokered by the traitor John F. Kerry – who speaks French, by the way – and Ayatollah al Obozo – who can barely speak English, if it’s not written for him on a teleprompter – appears too, to have gone the traditional way of such sucker scams. As soon as it was signed, the $157 billion freed up to fund terrorists once again, and the crippling sanctions lifted, the Islamist Iranian rulers made it crystal clear that they have no intention of honoring any part of the deal. As it turns out, they have been responsible for at least 14% of the American deaths in Iraq, so al Obozo sending more American troops there seems to be icing on the cake for the Terrorists of Tehran.

Traditionally, Nobel Peace Prize winners don’t go around starting or abetting or getting their countries involved in wars. Not so with America’s Instant Peace Prize Laureate. Al Obozo has been responsible for tens of thousands of deaths of our troops and innocent civilians all over the world. As noted above, this has added immensely to the probability of a major war – World War III? – breaking out. It has also given the impetus and the excuse for the massive invasion of Europe by “refugees”, some 80% of whom are military age, single Muslim males, traditionally the core of jihadist armies. Though it failed in 732, thanks to Charles “The Hammer” Martel – the last great French military man – and again in 1492, when the last Muslims were run out of Spain, it seems indisputable that Europe is in imminent danger of falling to Islamic jihad. The Propaganda Ministry, aka, the “mainstream” media, love to gush about al Obozo’s “unprecedented” accomplishments. Bringing on the potential destruction of the world by all-consuming war leading to a nuclear holocaust, by a Nobel Peace Prize winner is decidedly unprecedented, and certainly not traditional.

Traditionally, elected representatives of We, the People, pay attention to our wants and needs if for no

other reason, traditionally, that if they don’t, they’ll get booted out of office. However, this seems to be another of those traditions that has gone by the wayside. On issue after issue, from the disastrous ObamaCare to amnesty to IRS and EPA abuses of authority to taxes and spending to defunding, demoralizing, and downsizing of our military to job-killing complicity with the “environmental”movement, Congress has blatantly ignored the wishes of 65 to 90% of We, the People. Instead, they do the bidding of huge-money “donors” – traditionally referred to as “criminal bribe givers” – the “special interests” of the not-so-distant past. We, the People, are no longer feared by those who would use positions of power, privilege, and influence in government for their own benefit. Frankly, the only thing – repeat: the only thing – that stands between us and totalitarian domination by a far left elitist minority is the Second Amendment. And when the house of cards built by this bought-and-paid-for “government” collapses, and the circling Russian, Chinese and jihadist wolves move in for the kill, it will be the tradition of a freedom-loving armed citizenry, the “gun behind every blade of grass” that the Japanese so feared, that will ultimately be our salvation.

THE CAMP OF THE SAINTS

 American Renaissance

The proliferation of other races dooms our race, my race, irretrievably to extinction in the century to come, if we hold fast to our present moral principles.

—Jean Raspail, The Camp of the Saints, 1973

Forty-two years ago, the great French author Jean Raspail wrote a deeply prescient novel. A flotilla of rusty ships packed with beggars sets sail from the Third World. They head for the French Riviera, where a million wretched, brown-skinned people hope to storm the beaches and feed on the wealthy white West. Will the French army fire on the invaders or welcome them as refugees? In the end they do neither; soldiers throw down their weapons and run away as the mob stumbles ashore. Millions more follow, and Europe is snuffed out.

The Camp of the Saints has never gone out of print, and has been translated into all major European languages–and yet the coverage of the European “migrant” crisis goes on as if it had never been written. The masses pouring in from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, and a host of African countries are doing exactly what Mr. Raspail predicted they would and, tragically, so are the Europeans.

The underlying problem–and one that cannot be solved–is that whites have built the most pleasant places to live in human history while, with only a few exceptions, everywhere else is a dung heap. In some cases, such as Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya, Western meddling has made things worse, but even without that, hundreds of millions of non-whites in a hundred different countries would move to Europe or America if they could.

And now, they can.CampOfSaints
