41 Swedish Municipalities Being Forced to Take Back ISIS Members

12 Apr 2019, Chris Tomlinson

A list from the Centre for Violent Extremism (CVE) has revealed that 41 out of 290 Swedish municipalities are expected to be forced to accommodate returning Islamic State members.

The CVE invited representatives from the 41 areas to an event to teach them more about the returning terror group members in order to “provide support to the municipalities that have or may be able to receive returning children and adults from areas previously controlled by the Islamic state,” SVT reports.

The areas are being forced to take the returnees because, under Swedish law, they have Swedish passports and cannot be turned away. The returnees have the right to settle where they like and even claim social benefits, Breitbart London understands.
Around half of the 300 Swedes who went to Syria and Iraq to join the terror group have returned since 2012. Some left-wing politicians have suggested the returning fighters should be integrated back into Swedish society and even be given certain benefits to help them.

Muslim Migrant Charged with Threatening Anti-Mass Migration MP

Swedish Moderate MP Hanif Bali

CHRIS TOMLINSON

A Muslim migrant from the Balkans has been charged with uttering threats after an exchange with anti-mass migration MP Hanif Bali, whom he allegedly called a “dirty Arab”.

The 34-year-old accused Bali, who is originally from Iran and serves as an MP for the Moderate Party, of insulting Islam following an appearance on Swedish broadcaster SVT in February. He allegedly insulted and threatened Bali 30 times, Nyheter Idag reports.

According to Bali, who is well-known for speaking out against mass migration, the Muslim man called him a number of names and said, “I’m going to fuck you, you Arabic bastard, your mother and your sister, you’ve insulted Islam, if you were here I would break you.”

After being arrested, the man told police that he was not reacting to Bali’s SVT appearance but to a YouTube video and that he did not even know who Bali was, saying he did not know he was a politician and thought he was just an “idiot”.
A police memo that was brought before the court hearing at Gothenburg district court also revealed that the 34-year-old was uncooperative with police, saying he did not “intend to come to any fucking questioning.”
“The suspect then said he would fuck [the policeman] and his family. When I pointed out that it was not appropriate to threaten someone during a conversation with the Security Police, the suspect replied that he had not threatened anyone at all,” the memo added.
The man has reportedly been convicted of crimes in the past including money laundering.

Right wing media organizations openly propagandize on behalf of right wing politicians. What else is new?

by digby



To my mind this piece from 2017 proves that Wikileaks behaved exactly like Breitbart and Fox News, advising their preferred candidate about strategy, running derogatory stories about his rival and covering for his crimes and corruption. Recall that Trump hired Steve Bannon directly from the Breitbart editor's job to formally run his campaign.

The difference, of course, is that Breitbart and Fox don't pretend to be a "radical transparency" organization devoted to exposing government power wherever they find it. They have no problem owning the fact that they are cheap, partisan whores who are working for the advancement of an authoritarian scumbag largely in order to own the libs. That's what Julian Assange did during the 2016 election. He's just less honest about it:

Just before the stroke of midnight on September 20, 2016, at the height of last year’s presidential election, the WikiLeaks Twitter account sent a private direct message to Donald Trump Jr., the Republican nominee’s oldest son and campaign surrogate. “A PAC run anti-Trump site putintrump.org is about to launch,” WikiLeaks wrote. “The PAC is a recycled pro-Iraq war PAC. We have guessed the password. It is ‘putintrump.’ See ‘About’ for who is behind it. Any comments?” (The site, which has since become a joint project with Mother Jones, was founded by Rob Glaser, a tech entrepreneur, and was funded by Progress for USA Political Action Committee.)

The next morning, about 12 hours later, Trump Jr. responded to WikiLeaks. “Off the record I don’t know who that is, but I’ll ask around,” he wrote on September 21, 2016. “Thanks.”

The messages, obtained by The Atlantic, were also turned over by Trump Jr.’s lawyers to congressional investigators. They are part of a long—and largely one-sided—correspondence between WikiLeaks and the president’s son that continued until at least July 2017. The messages show WikiLeaks, a radical transparency organization that the American intelligence community believes was chosen by the Russian government to disseminate the information it had hacked, actively soliciting Trump Jr.’s cooperation. WikiLeaks made a series of increasingly bold requests, including asking for Trump’s tax returns, urging the Trump campaign on Election Day to reject the results of the election as rigged, and requesting that the president-elect tell Australia to appoint Julian Assange ambassador to the United States.
[...]
Though Trump Jr. mostly ignored the frequent messages from WikiLeaks, he at times appears to have acted on its requests. When WikiLeaks first reached out to Trump Jr. about putintrump.org, for instance, Trump Jr. followed up on his promise to “ask around.” According to a source familiar with the congressional investigations into Russian interference with the 2016 campaign, who requested anonymity because the investigation is ongoing, on the same day that Trump Jr. received the first message from WikiLeaks, he emailed other senior officials with the Trump campaign, including Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, Brad Parscale, and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, telling them WikiLeaks had made contact. Kushner then forwarded the email to campaign communications staffer Hope Hicks. At no point during the 10-month correspondence does Trump Jr. rebuff WikiLeaks, which had published stolen documents and was already observed to be releasing information that benefited Russian interests.

WikiLeaks played a pivotal role in the presidential campaign. In July 2016, on the first day of the Democratic National Convention, WikiLeaks released emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee's servers that spring. The emails showed DNC officials denigrating Bernie Sanders, renewing tensions on the eve of Clinton’s acceptance of the nomination. On October 7, less than an hour after the Washington Post released the Access Hollywood tape, in which Trump bragged about sexually assaulting women, Wikileaks released emails that hackers had pilfered from the personal email account of Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta.

On October 3, 2016, WikiLeaks wrote again. “Hiya, it’d be great if you guys could comment on/push this story,” WikiLeaks suggested, attaching a quote from then-Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton about wanting to “just drone” WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange.

“Already did that earlier today,” Trump Jr. responded an hour-and-a-half later. “It’s amazing what she can get away with.”

Two minutes later, Trump Jr. wrote again, asking, “What’s behind this Wednesday leak I keep reading about?” The day before, Roger Stone, an informal advisor to Donald Trump, had tweeted, “Wednesday@HillaryClinton is done. #WikiLeaks.”

WikiLeaks didn’t respond to that message, but on October 12, 2016, the account again messaged Trump Jr. “Hey Donald, great to see you and your dad talking about our publications,” WikiLeaks wrote. (At a rally on October 10, Donald Trump had proclaimed, “I love WikiLeaks!”)

“Strongly suggest your dad tweets this link if he mentions us,” WikiLeaks went on, pointing Trump Jr. to the link wlsearch.tk, which it said would help Trump’s followers dig through the trove of stolen documents and find stories. “There’s many great stories the press are missing and we’re sure some of your follows [sic] will find it,” WikiLeaks went on. “Btw we just released Podesta Emails Part 4.”

Trump Jr. did not respond to this message. But just 15 minutes after it was sent, as The Wall Street Journal’s Byron Tau pointed out, Donald Trump himself tweeted, “Very little pick-up by the dishonest media of incredible information provided by WikiLeaks. So dishonest! Rigged system!”

Two days later, on October 14, 2016, Trump Jr. tweeted out the link WikiLeaks had provided him. “For those who have the time to read about all the corruption and hypocrisy all the @wikileaks emails are right here: http://wlsearch.tk/,” he wrote.

After this point, Trump Jr. ceased to respond to WikiLeaks’s direct messages, but WikiLeaks escalated its requests.

“Hey Don. We have an unusual idea,” WikiLeaks wrote on October 21, 2016. “Leak us one or more of your father’s tax returns.” WikiLeaks then laid out three reasons why this would benefit both the Trumps and WikiLeaks. One, The New York Times had already published a fragment of Trump’s tax returns on October 1; two, the rest could come out any time “through the most biased source (e.g. NYT/MSNBC).”

It is the third reason, though, WikiLeaks wrote, that “is the real kicker.” “If we publish them it will dramatically improve the perception of our impartiality,” WikiLeaks explained. “That means that the vast amount of stuff that we are publishing on Clinton will have much higher impact, because it won’t be perceived as coming from a ‘pro-Trump’ ‘pro-Russia’ source.” It then provided an email address and link where the Trump campaign could send the tax returns, and adds, “The same for any other negative stuff (documents, recordings) that you think has a decent chance of coming out. Let us put it out.”

Trump Jr. did not respond to this message.

WikiLeaks didn’t write again until Election Day, November 8, 2016. “Hi Don if your father ‘loses’ we think it is much more interesting if he DOES NOT conceed [sic] and spends time CHALLENGING the media and other types of rigging that occurred—as he has implied that he might do,” WikiLeaks wrote at 6:35pm, when the idea that Clinton would win was still the prevailing conventional wisdom. (As late as 7:00pm that night, FiveThirtyEight, a trusted prognosticator of the election, gave Clinton a 71 percent chance of winning the presidency.) WikiLeaks insisted that contesting the election results would be good for Trump’s rumored plans to start a media network should he lose the presidency. “The discussion can be transformative as it exposes media corruption, primary corruption, PAC corruption, etc.,” WikiLeaks wrote.

Shortly after midnight that day, when it was clear that Trump had beaten all expectations and won the presidency, WikiLeaks sent him a simple message: “Wow.”

Trump Jr. did not respond to these messages either, but WikiLeaks was undeterred. “Hi Don. Hope you’re doing well!” WikiLeaks wrote on December 16 to Trump Jr., who was by then the son of the president-elect. “In relation to Mr. Assange: Obama/Clinton placed pressure on Sweden, UK and Australia (his home country) to illicitly go after Mr. Assange. It would be real easy and helpful for your dad to suggest that Australia appoint Assange ambassador to [Washington,] DC.”

WikiLeaks even imagined how Trump might put it: “‘That’s a real smart tough guy and the most famous australian [sic] you have!’ or something similar,” WikiLeaks wrote. “They won’t do it but it will send the right signals to Australia, UK + Sweden to start following the law and stop bending it to ingratiate themselves with the Clintons.” (On December 7, Assange, proclaiming his innocence, had released his testimony in front of London investigators looking into accusations that he had committed alleged sexual assault.)

In the winter and spring, WikiLeaks went largely silent, only occasionally sending Trump Jr. links. But on July 11, 2017, three days after The New York Times broke the story about Trump Jr.’s June 2016 meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer with connections to Russia’s powerful prosecutor general, WikiLeaks got in touch again.

“Hi Don. Sorry to hear about your problems,” WikiLeaks wrote. “We have an idea that may help a little. We are VERY interested in confidentially obtaining and publishing a copy of the email(s) cited in the New York Times today,” citing a reference in the paper to emails Trump Jr had exchanged with Rob Goldstone, a publicist who had helped set up the meeting. “We think this is strongly in your interest,” WikiLeaks went on. It then reprised many of the same arguments it made in trying to convince Trump Jr. to turn over his father’s tax returns, including the argument that Trump’s enemies in the press were using the emails to spin an unfavorable narrative of the meeting. “Us publishing not only deprives them of this ability but is beautifully confounding.”

The message was sent at 9:29 am on July 11. Trump Jr. did not respond, but just hours later, he posted the emails himself, on his own Twitter feed.

Some time after 2011 or so, Wikileaks morphed into plain old partisan yellow journalism worthy of no more respect as a journalistic organization than Newsmax or Glenn Beck's The Blaze. It's protected under the First Amendment but you can't blame liberals for being reluctant to energetically take up the cause after what he did. The ACLU will do it, no doubt, as will other defenders of free speech. But you can bet the right wingers like Trump and Hannity will run as fast as they can now that Assange is in custody and can no longer help them out.No one should ever expect the right wing to defend free speech unless it directly benefits them.

This is a good rundown of the civil liberties and press freedom concerns about the Assange charges. Even miscreant yellow journalists have a right to publish and protect their sources.

Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder and national coordinator of Tea Party Patriots, told Breitbart News that the rallies were inspired by President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address, where he pledged, “America will never be a socialist country … ever.”

“That inspired us to do this,” Martin said.

But, Martin said, the event is about more than opposing the left’s agenda.

“The people taking part in the rallies are not just standing against socialism, but are also standing up for liberty and freedom,”

So many 'Patriots' are so utterly clueless about the topic upon which they bloviate.

'Patriots' do not accept welfare from The State.  

'Patriots' do not work in professions that impose violations of Rightful Liberty upon their countrymen.

And the absurdity of the Tea Party holding 'rallies' on 'Tax Day' to protest 'Socialism' and oppressive government is beyond my ability to properly articulate.  The stunning failure to understand the reality in front of them is mind-boggling.

Socialism is not the problem.  Communism is not the problem.  Anarchy is not the problem.  Fascism is not the problem.  Racism is not the problem.

The problem is now and has always been with the -ist, not the -ism.

Social-ists are the problem.  Commun-ists are the problem.  Anarch-ists are the problem.

Don't fight the -ism - that is folly.

Extirpate the -ists - reduce the gene pool of the garbage.

No man or woman has ever died from an -ism.

Death is always at the hands of the -ists...

          The Case for Trump -- Minus "America First"?      Comment   Translate Page      

This is not a review of Victor Hanson's book, The Case for TrumpRather, it is a passing comment on the treatment of "America First" in Hanson's case for Trump. 

In discussing Trump's counter-revolutionary (my term) "America First" vision, Hanson writes:

Yes, Trump's America First vision triggered "the charge of isolationism" (not to mention apoplexy) from the Left, the Republican Establishment, sundry "progressives" and new world order types. All of the above had varyingly dominated American politics in the decades since World War II, pushing the country ever farther off of its foundations as a nation-state into the global system, whose institutional bases were, after all, established by a pair of Soviet agents, Alger Hiss (United Nations) and Harry Dexter White (IMF). Certainly, to these same globalists, it is safe to say that "the charge of isolationism," as Hanson writes, "only cemented the slur against Trump," which was spawned by vague but distasteful notions of "sullied" Lindbergh, as Hanson writes, and the America First Committee. It's notable that Hanson, the Trump case-maker, seems to share this outlook.

Indeed, he repeats their standard smears of Lindbergh and, by extension, the America First Committee. Why was Lindbergh "sullied"? Lindbergh, Hanson tells the reader, was "at best" silent as Hitler and Mussolini rose. "At worst," he was a conspiracy theorist who blamed "international Jewry" and "British monarchists" for our entry into World War II.

This is the rote interpretation of Lindbergh, as repeated by the Left, the Republican Establishment, sundry "progressives" and new world order types. A return to the record, however, shows this is unfair. It is unfair to dismiss the hero-aviator as "silent" in the 1930s when he made multiple trips into Nazi Germany at the behest of the US government to gain intelligence on the Nazi aviation industry. It is unfair to characterize Lindbergh as a conspiracy theorist about "international Jewry" and the rest. Doing so in ahistorical shorthand, however, is a quick way to ensure that America First retains its discredited and also disreputable aura. Hanson's Trump "challenge," then, would seem to be to distance Trump from it.      

He accomplishes this some pages later.

Here, America First has been downgraded to merely that "supplementary" slogan of "the Trump team" -- not even attributed to Trump himself. And thank goodness, since the America First slogan, Hanson reminds us, "only provided further ammunition to critics" -- and we mustn't have that. After all, America First, Hanson tells us again, was "the isolationist, anti-war, noninterventionist and often anti-Semitic movement of Charles Lindbergh..." 

In my view, the resurrection of "America First" was not only what made Trump's candidacy unique in presidential history; it was not only the key to Trump's success with the Deplorable Vote; it was also, and equally as important, a catalyst for the chain reaction that resulted in his Marxist enemies in and around the Deep State going nuclear on him and attempting a coup against his presidency. Why?

Here is the short answer from The Red Thread: A Search for Ideological Drivers Inside the Anti-Trump Conspiracy:

Marxism is a common driver of revolutions and coups, successful and failed, over the past 170 years (and before that it was called something else). Throughout the 20th century, Moscow was the main instigator and enabler of these same aggressions, and especially so within the United States. Many people still recognize this as the “boring from within” cancer of international communism and socialism, even as they assume it all vanished when the Soviet Union dissolved in 1991. Enter Donald Trump, a quarter century later, single-handedly reviving the greatest weapon never deployed against international communism and its globalist descendants: America First.

Whether anyone recognizes it (including Trump himself), Donald Trump is America’s most anti-Communist president ever, bar none. Not even Ronald Reagan’s anti-communism exceeds Trump’s, tempered as it was by Reagan’s “internationalism” and commitment to “free trade,” both of which are positions that have been easily subverted by communism to undermine the national interests of the USA.

The restoration of the nation-state was the organizing basis of Trump’s successful presidential candidacy. The profundity of this “America First” principle cannot be overestimated: A strong nation-state is a bulwark against international socialism and its “One World” framework, which for generations has been pressed upon Americans in different guises, up to and including “globalism.” 

Trump without America First isn't Trump.

---

Back in 2016, I had occasion to research the America First Committee and present my thoughts about it in relation to Donald Trump's presidential campaign in an address called "America First, 1940-2016." (See the video presentation here.) What follows is an excerpt from the address, which was publlshed in 2017 in the Journal of Strategy and Politics:

...This latest chapter in the annals of America First probably began as a set up, when a New York Times reporter asked Donald Trump if it was correct to say that what Trump was describing was “if not isolationist, then at least something of ‘America First’?” Trump replied that he was not “isolationist,” but he was “America First.” “So I like the expression,” Trump said. “I’m ‘America First.’”

Thus, a thousand screeching headlines were born: stories about “noxious,” “isolationist,” “defeatist,” “anti-Semitic,” “pro-Nazi,” “America First.” Herbert Hoover, Robert Taft, Norman Thomas, and the rest? This doesn’t parse. Even Trump-friendly Breitbart News ran a story called: “Trump Risks Charles Lindbergh Label with America First.” “America First,” the story says, “soon became associated with isolationism, anti-Semitism, and short-sightedness ….”

But even the Lindbergh story of America First and antiSemitism doesn’t hold up under scrutiny—certainly not on delving into the details of the organized smear campaign against the famous aviator. What is important to note is that these recent debate-stopping buzz words are the same ones that dogged “America First” back at the beginning.

Reading into the documents and speeches and letters of the America First Committee and wider movement, however, I see none of these poisons driving the principals. They did see an officially neutral America as having separate interests from the rest of world – and very likely, they would relate to Trump’s border wall and Muslim immigration moratorium, but would fail utterly to understand how we ever came to need them – but their concerns, agree with them or not, were not to appease Hitler and advance anti-semitism, as we are incessantly told.

They discussed constitutional matters; American liberties and their loss during a state of “war socialism” and regimentation; Congress’s war powers, which they saw being seized by a usurping chief executive. They also discussed their sons’ lives, which they did not want to see lost by the ten thousand. After Germany attacked the Soviet Union in June 1941, they were also gravely concerned about an American alliance with one totalitarian monster, Stalin, to defeat Hitler, another totalitarian monster. Better to let them fight each other, some said.

Certainly, as former President Hoover pointed out in his one of many speeches, for Uncle Sam to go to war allied with the dictator Stalin “makes the whole argument of our joining the war to bring the four freedoms to mankind a gargantuan jest”—particularly, as he would also point out, since the Communist Party, and also Stalin’s secret agents, were already conspiring in a dirty, covert intelligence war against the United States, as partly revealed in prewar investigations by the House UnAmerican Activities Committee. (In my book, American Betrayal,

I ponder the impact on US policy-making and war-making that this same Soviet intelligence army of over 500 confirmed agents inside our government and related institutions might have had. It was considerable. It was also cataclysmic.) As for the charge of shortsightedness, Sen. Robert Taft sounds not a little clairvoyant when in 1941 he asked: “Will that part of the world which Stalin conquers with our airplanes and tanks be consecrated to freedom [of speech and religion and the rest]? Or, after a Russian victory with our aid, must we step in with our armies to impose the four freedoms on 200,000,000 people 10,000 miles away…?” At the very least, the namecalling is not the full story, then or now; nonetheless, it always ends the discussion.

This pattern is typical. It begins with buzz words and the strictest platitudes. For example, one is “Islamophobic” if one rejects the statement, “Islam is a religion of peace”; one is a “Red-Baiter” or “McCarthy on Steroids” if one demonstrates that the “Red Scare” was no “scare” at all but rather a Red Reality subverting our republic. Just so, one is a Nazi or a “nativist” (whatever that is), if one is for America first. Chilling effect follows. But not for Donald Trump.

Trump’s course of action was to double down on “America First,” trumpeting the slogan at campaign rallies. A few weeks later, in his first formal foreign policy address, he announced that “America First” would be his guiding policy as president. Here’s what he said:

My foreign policy will always put the interests of the American people and American security above all else. It has to be first. Has to be. That will be the foundation of every single decision that I will make. America First will be the major and overriding theme of my administration.

More poison protest headlines followed. But consider for a moment what it means when the presumptive Republican nominee for president of the United States makes waves by declaring he will put America first in formulating his policies; and, further, has to explain what it means to do so; and, then, on the whole, is met with derision, outrage and fear on the part of commentators and politicians and academics and the like – no matter where on the political spectrum they may have located themselves.

I submit this as proof of how extremely far along on the continuum between nation-state and global system the United States of America really is. This tells me that the most revolutionary thing Donald Trump said in this same address is the following. He said:

We will no longer surrender this country or its people to the false gods of globalism. The nation-state remains the true foundation of for happiness and harmony. I am skeptical of international unions that tie us up and bring American down and will never enter [them].

This is nothing less than a declaration of war on globalism—on the New World Order, on One-Worldism, internationalism, and multilateral this and that. It seems to echo some long lost chord of anti-Communism, too, and even buck unseen Marxist currents. At least so it strikes me. But we don’t talk about such things anymore. What Trump has done is revive an old struggle in American politics. It is a struggle the adherents  of America First have always lost. Trump’s completely unexpected political success to date, however, tells us this is not an idea whose time is indisputably past—as we have all been so forcefully taught.
