Austrian chancellor: Without strong borders our entire world is in danger

Austria’s chancellor Sebastian Kurz, said at a security conference in Munich that the inflow of migrants “may undermine peace and prosperity in Europe”.
“To ensure peace in the EU we got rid of the borders in the EU a long time ago, but without proper external border protection these borders are in danger. If we don’t do that, our entire world will be in danger”, Kurz said.
He added that “The Arab Spring became a winter in the Gulf; there is pressure in Africa, in terms of migration flows” and “There is a huge potential of conflicts here.”
The leader of the conservative People’s Party (OVP), slammed the EU’s weak border protection and mentioned that without proper external border security there could be border controls within the EU again.

There is much more on this, and it will be posted. For the moment:

Russia: Gunman Kills Churchgoers at Folk Festival in Muslim-majority Dagestan -- He reportedly shouted “Allahu Akbar!”

A man armed with a hunting rifle gunned down churchgoers in the city of Kizlyar, according to the Associated Press, and reportedly shouted “Allahu Akbar!” as he opened fire.
Kizlyar’s mayor Alexander Shuvalov told Russian media the gunman opened fire as people were leaving a Sunday evening service at a local Orthodox church.
“Four people were killed. The shooter was shot dead. Two police officers and a woman were wounded,” he said.
Christians are a small minority in Dagestan, which is ethnically diverse and over 80 per cent Muslim, according to a 2012 census.

The killer has been identified as a local man in his twenties, but the authorities have not disclosed his name or suggested a motive yet.

Sweden Democrats Promise to Reduce Asylum Numbers to Zero and End Chain Migration

The anti-mass migration Sweden Democrats (SD) have promised to reduce both asylum claims and chain migration — or ‘family reunification’ — to zero, and pledged to turn the migration board into a “remigration” board.

The election platform, released this week, claims that under an SD government Sweden would only take in asylum seekers from neighbouring countries. Jimmie Åkesson, the leader of the party, said the SD policy, when compared to the Moderate Party, “is between 50,000 and 60,000 asylum and family immigrants per year,” Blekinge Läns Tidningreports.
The SD has also announced that if elected they will be focusing their efforts on deportations of both failed asylum seekers and those who do not wish to remain in Sweden.
On Twitter, the party wrote: “Many who live here do not want to [stay], but yearn to their homelands. We believe that for both their sake and that of our society, we must offer real opportunities to return.”
Another major pillar of the SD platform is the issue of law and order, especially in the heavily migrant populated no-go zones across the country where grenade attacks, shootings and sex attacks have become a major problem.
Earlier this year Åkesson promised to allow the Swedish military to work in a support role to help police officers deal with the escalating violence, which has seen police stations targeted by explosives and police vehicles attacked with grenades.
Last year members of the Moderate Party proposed allowing the military to operate in no-go zones, and more recently Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven refused to rule out the possibility of deploying the armed forces.

According to Åkesson, he sees the United States as a model for how to deal with organised criminality. He said he wanted to see the participation in criminal organisations criminalised in a law likely similar to the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act of 1970.

Why did Mueller's indictments skip over the most obvious and pertinent statute that was violated?

By Thomas Lifson

Robert Mueller’s indictments announced Friday are most notable for what Sherlock Holmes famously called “The dog that didn’t bark.” There was a clear, obvious, and pertinent statute that could have been applied to the alleged crimes but wasn’t.  Fortunately, the blogosphere has our own Sherlock Holmes on the case, Powerline’s John Hinderaker, who noticed the charge that was not made:
Mueller indicted the Russians only for violating 18 U.S.C. §371 (conspiracy to defraud the United States), §§ 1343 and 1344 (wire fraud and bank fraud), and §1082(A) (identity theft). He did not indict them for violating 52 U.S.C. §30121 (contributions and donations by foreign nationals). The question is, why not? (snip)
Actually, Mueller indicted the Russians only for violating 18 U.S.C. §371 (conspiracy to defraud the United States), §§ 1343 and 1344 (wire fraud and bank fraud), and §1082(A) (identity theft). He did not indict them for violating 52 U.S.C. §30121 (contributions and donations by foreign nationals). The question is, why not? (snip)
This is the relevant language of 52 U.S.C. §30121, which covers “meddling” in U.S. elections by foreign nationals:
(a) Prohibition: It shall be unlawful for—
(1) a foreign national, directly or indirectly, to make—
(A) a contribution or donation of money or other thing of value, or to make an express or implied promise to make a contribution or donation, in connection with a Federal, State, or local election;
(B) a contribution or donation to a committee of a political party; or
(C) an expenditure, independent expenditure, or disbursement for an electioneering communication (within the meaning of section 30104(f)(3) of this title); or
(2) a person to solicit, accept, or receive a contribution or donation described in subparagraph (A) or (B) of paragraph (1) from a foreign national.
The Russians obviously violated this statute; they spent millions of dollars to promote the candidacies of Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump and Jill Stein, and to oppose the candidacies of Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. So why weren’t they charged with the most pertinent crime they committed? Because Christopher Steele arguably violated the same law. He is a foreign national, and he contributed a “thing of value” to the Hillary Clinton campaign, namely the fake dossier.
Note, too, Section (2): it is a crime to “solicit, accept, or receive” such a contribution from a foreign national. Isn’t that what the Perkins, Coie law firm, the Clinton campaign, the DNC, and probably Hillary herself, did?
I thought it very peculiar that Friday’s announcement of the indictments was made just in time to distract the nation from the FBI’s confession that it could have stopped the Parkland school slaughter but didn’t bother following up on an explicit warning of the guns stockpiled and the threats of a school shooting by the alleged perp. It suggests that the announcement was rushed in order to distract the nation from the FBI’s failure to perform its duty at the cost of a horrendous slaughter and trauma. The thousands of students at the high school who escaped slaughter will be  traumatized for life by what they experienced that day.
But John Hinderaker’s shrewd observation takes the disgrace to an entirely different level. It suggests (but does not prove) that the Mueller team is going out of its way to shield Hillary  Clinton and her campaign and their henchmen at Perkins Coie, the DNC, Fusion GPS, and Christopher Steele from their own potential crimes.
Perhaps the reason why Robert Mueller did not make the announcement himself, but rather let his boss do it, is that he wanted to avoid potential questions about the statute that his indictments ignored.
Guardians of Justice?

I hope there will an opportunity for Congress to call Mueller to testify and explain why his indictment dog didn’t bark at the obvious statute that was violated. 

Council Of Europe Slams Crime Wave Sweden For Not Taking MORE Migrants

Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights Nils Muiznieks has criticised Sweden for not taking in enough migrants, saying that more chain migration — or ‘family reunification’ — would “help integration”.

Muiznieks argued that Sweden should allow in more migrants, claiming that the emergency of the 2015 migrant crisis, which saw Sweden take in more migrants per capita than any other western European country, was over, Aftonbladet reports.
“Sweden has been quite generous to refugees and asylum seekers, but this emergency situation introduced years ago is no longer needed and you can return to your traditional, better policy on refugees and asylum seekers,” Muiznieks said.
The Latvian-American said that chain migration was an especially good way to bring in new migrants, saying: “You should not limit the rights to family reunification.”
He added: “Limiting their rights simply prevents integration into Swedish society. Another aspect is that family reunification is an important way to get there safely and legally. If we want to stop chaotic reception, we should increase the opportunity to get here safely.”
Muiznieks based his views on a visit to Sweden last October as part of a report by the Council of Europe into the situation of asylum seekers and refugees with disabilities.
While Sweden slowed the massive flow of migrants in late 2015, the Swedish population has continued to grow due as deportations of failed asylum seekers, especially to Afghanistan, have run into opposition from left-wing activists and others.
Later this year Swedes will go to the polls to vote for the next government and the issue of migration has been one of the top issues for the various parties.

The anti-mass migration Sweden Democrats have made it clear that they want to see a massive reduction of migration with leader Jimmie Åkesson saying that he wanted to see more focus be given toward the deportation of failed asylum seekers.

Soros-Funded Anti-Brexit Group Reveals Cash to Be Spent on Summer of Ads, Music Festival, and App

Nearly all the UK’s major anti-Brexit groups are coordinating in a fresh push to keep the country in the EU, launching a summer of campaigns, a music festival, a new app, and public adverts, starting in weeks.

“The new money that we’ve got in the last few days and the Soros match-funding is to deploy guerrilla marketing, also on social media,” a coordinator for Best for Britain toldPolitico.
The group, who were given hundreds of thousands of pounds by billionaire open borders activist George Soros, boasted how they would be investing in election-style billboards and a mobile phone app inspired by Labour’s Momentum movement.
They plan to hold “barnstormer” meetings in Leave-voting areas over the summer to antagonise Brexit supporters and spread their message, as well as attempt to influence Members of Parliament, the coordinator revealed.
The unnamed activist also said Best for Britain is working to launch an anti-Brexit music festival in London on the August bank holiday weekend, taking advantage of the fact the Glastonbury festival is not happening this year.
Best for Britain are allegedly coordinating with Tony Blair’s former spin-doctor Alastair Campbell, the New European newspaper, Conservative Lord Ros Altmann, Guyana-born investor Gina Miller, and Labour’s Lord Adonis, via an email list and a structure called Grassroots Coordinating Group (GCG), chaired by the Labour MP Chuka Umunna.
“There has been, for the first time probably, a great deal of coordination and coming together on email, through meetings and a determination I think to present a joined-up message against Brexit that’s been absent up until now,” explained Matt Kelly, editor of the New European.
The groups ultimately hope to subvert the referendum result by defeating the Government in Parliament, and then either forcing a general election or a second referendum on the terms of exit.
However, Gina Miller, one of the founders of Brest for Britain, attacked her former group as “undemocratic” last weekend, condemning their “guerrilla warfare” tactics, attempts to bring down the government, and lack of “transparency” after taking cash from Soros.
We have good news! @BestForBritain have agreed to donate some of the money they recently crowd-funded so we can get our campaign off the ground! We will work with anyone trying to prevent this disaster! @BestForBritain @Open_Britain @euromove @TheNewEuropean @Scientists4EU etc!
A new youth-focused anti-Brexit group, Our Future, Our Choice (OFOC), is also receiving Soros’s cash indirectly via Best for Britain, and is focusing on pushing Labour’s leader Jeremy Corbyn to call for a second referendum.
One of OFOC’s co-founders, Femi Oluwole, a 27-year-old law graduate, said: “I realized that if all the problems I know Brexit will produce happen, and I did nothing… I would hate myself… So I’m now coordinating a national campaign from my parents’ loft in Sheffield.”
Another of the group’s co-founders, Cambridge student Lara Spirit, claimed they had representatives in more than 40 universities willing to campaign on campus, with young apprentices, and unemployed young people.
“Young people should be at the centre of this debate,” she said. “They stand the most to lose, and yet they voted most decisively to stay.”
