Europe

Each Traditional-Nationalist Movement Has Common Cause

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Europe is rejecting, resisting, recoiling from “diversity,” the multiracial, multicultural, multiethnic and multilingual future that, say U.S. elites, is America’s preordained mission to bring about for all mankind. Indeed, increasingly, the indigenous peoples of Europe seem to view as the death of their nations and continent, what U.S. liberal elites see as the Brave New World to come. To traditionalist Europeans, our heaven looks like their hell.

Tribalism in Europe Marches on—But to What End?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Though America was born of secession, the U.S. establishment since the Cold War has been far more trans-nationalist and globalist than a great champion of new nations. Perhaps that is because the New World Order proclaimed by Bush I in 1991 envisioned the U.S. as the benevolent global hegemon. Tribalism appears to be doing to the Bush New World Order what it did to Mikhail Gorbachev’s Soviet Union.

Alone Perhaps, But Is Trump Right?

Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News

Once Europe went out to convert, colonize and Christianize the world. Now the grandchildren of the colonized peoples come to Europe to demand their share of their inheritance from a West besotted with guilt over its past sins that cannot say "No!"

(Some of) 'Old Europe' Is Not So Bad

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

A key reason for the success of Copenhagen and Amsterdam (Islamophobia alert) is that they both have shut the door, in different ways, on Islamic immigration. The door is indeed more firmly shut by the Danes who, though they are superficially the cliché UN pacifists since the days of Dag Hammarskjold, quietly say no to things that endanger their quality of life.

What Happens to Christians There Will Come Here

Here in America our church and political leaders, such as Speaker Paul Ryan and the hierarchy of Washington’s Episcopal National Cathedral, are not just allowing, but encouraging the same kind of Muslim invasion that is extinguishing European Christianity.

Does Europe Treasure NATO Again?

Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness

Ironically, Trump’s herky-jerky warnings about redefining strategic missions and meeting required contributions may jolt the alliance into reform—in a way that past American presidents’ mellifluous but empty rhetoric about the fissures within and the contradictions of NATO seem to have only made things worse.

Is Turkey Lost to the West?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Turkey, a powerful and reliable ally of the U.S. through the Cold War, appears to be coming unmoored from Europe and the West, and is becoming increasingly sectarian, autocratic and nationalistic. While anti-immigrant and anti-EU parties across Europe may not take power anywhere in 2017, theirs is now a permanent and growing presence, leeching away support from centrist parties left and right.

Europe's Lesson Teaches Us: Don't Go Green

Stephen Moore, Investor's Business Daily

Thankfully, Donald Trump has made it known that adopting more of the policy quackery of Europe — at a time when the U.S. Has more recoverable shale oil and gas and more clean coal than any other nation on the planet — is no way to make America great again. Europe is running away from the fantasy of green energy, and this is one rare instance when America may want to follow their lead.

Montenegro Doesn’t Belong In NATO

Montenegro is a quaint, but geopolitically irrelevant. Balkan state. If Montenegro's admission to NATO is approved by the full Senate, Americans will have yet another essentially useless defense dependent, this one a corrupt, long-time gangster state.

The Rise of Illiberal Democracy

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Donald Trump’s victory represented a rejection of Barack Obama’s America. And whether he succeeds, what is there to cause America to look back with nostalgia on the America Obama came to represent? Our Founding Fathers believed that democracy represented the degeneration of a republic; they feared and loathed it, and felt that it was the precursor of dictatorship. They may have been right again.

Are Europe's 'Extreme Right' Parties Really So Extreme?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The European left -- lost for so many years in a blind, virtue-signaling multiculturalism -- now has to come to grips with the fact that maybe all cultures are NOT equal, that some cultures truly are racist, sexist, and homophobic and are governed by a religious ideology that seeks to rule the world with no separation of mosque and state and human rights virtually non-existent, the very things the left claims it abhors. And those same leftists don't know how to handle this contradiction.  So they blame those who do and call them neo-Nazis.

Impending Budget Crisis Dooms American Imperium

America’s fiscal position is deteriorating sharply. Earlier this year the Congressional Budget Office forecast that the federal deficit was back on the rise in 2016, with steady increases expected over the next decade. There isn’t going to be much money for the national government to spend on “discretionary” items, including underwriting wealthy allies, rebuilding failed states, and enforcing international norms.

If God is dead…

Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News

A people's religion, their faith, creates their culture, and their culture creates their civilization. And when faith dies, the culture dies, the civilization dies, and the people begin to die. Is this not the recent history of the West?

Cruz to NYC Democrats: We Need “proactive, hard-headed counterterrorism strategy”

The bottom line is that to defeat radical Islam, said Senator Cruz, we need to focus our counterterrorism resources where terrorists are likely to be. That’s not profiling or spying. It’s common sense.

President Trump Will Complete the Europeanization of America

Leon H. Wolf, RedState

Even if Trump can do half the things he promises, the end result of his nomination as the standard bearer of the Republican party is that we are ten years or less from joining the Brits, French, Germans, and Greeks in basically accepting that the government should run our healthcare, our workplaces, and our economic sector, and just bickering about who can do it most efficiently.

The Migrant Rape Culture The Political Elite Wishes Were Fake

Scott Greer, Daily Caller

The lesson to be taken from the New Year’s Eve horror is clear: Europe must shut its borders to further large-scale migration to individuals who want to bring their incompatible cultural practices into the West. The security of citizens should be more of a priority than the feelings of entitled non-citizens and out-of-touch elites.

Will Europe man-up?

Pat Buchanan, CNS News

They have repudiated their cradle faith Christianity, apologized for the sins of their fathers and sought to make reparations, embraced La Dolce Vita, materialism and hedonism, freeloaded off U.S. defense for 70 years, ceased to have children, thrown open their borders to former colonial peoples to come and repopulate the continent, and turned their back on patriotism to celebrate diversity and globalism.

Immigration is the issue of the century

Pat Buchanan, CNS News

“Will the West endure, or disappear by the century's end as another lost civilization? Mass immigration, if it continues, will be more decisive in deciding the fate of the West than Islamist terrorism. For the world is invading the West.”

Importing Jihad – 2.3 Million Muslim Immigrants To America

Transferring murder, mayhem and radicalism from dysfunctional Islamic countries to Europe and America, and in so doing voluntarily putting our own citizens at great risk is not a requirement of being a compassionate, open-minded, enlightened and tolerant human being.
