Ansbach, Bavaria police guard crime scene after an explosion at a music festival killed one and injured twelve Sunday night, July 24, 2016.


Sunday night a man carrying an explosive device into an open-air music festival in the town of Ansbach, near Nuremberg, was killed and twelve other people injured, three critically, when the device detonated.

Update: The man is now identified as Mohammad Daleel (right), a 27 year old Syrian asylum seeker who arrived in Germany two years ago. His application for asylum was rejected last year, but he had been allowed to remain temporarily and was living in an apartment in the town. [Courtesy of the federal government, of course.] He had twice before tried to commit suicide and had received psychiatric care! 

He had in his possession a video in which he declared his allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Bagdadi, Islamic State's (IS) top leader. In examining the accommodation where the man lived, investigators also found materials to build more bombs, such as soldering iron and batteries. In addition, the officers found two mobile phones with multiple SIM cards and a laptop safe. Violent videos were stored with Islamist orientation and Salafist contents.

It seems as if Donald Trump's acceptance speech last night at the RNC was not "too dark" in describing the situation in the West now -- as the liberal, pro-globalist news pundits have been saying. This event happened as if to underline and give credence to the Republican presidential nominee's world-view. Below is the story that came out around noon from the AFP news service. The updates are the latest information. -cy

Update 7-24: Munich prosecutor revealed that the teenager had spent two months in a closed psychiatric ward in 2015 and received treatment for social phobias and anxiety. Also, turns out that 6 (not 7) of the 9 victims were of non-German background.

Updates 7-23:  Greece's foreign ministry says a Greek man is among nine people shot dead by the gunman in Munich on Friday evening. Earlier, Turkey and Kosovo each confirmed that three of their nationals were killed.  [What? Seven of the nine are not German? -cy] Also, seven of the nine victims were teenagers!

Bavaria's police chief Robert Heimberger says the attacker (shown at right), now named as David S. (full name is allegedly Ali David Sonboly), was born and grew up in Munich, where he also attended school. An acquaintance of the Munich attacker says that he was quiet and reserved with a normal family background.

FPÖ files legal challenge against result of May presidential election

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2016-06-08 14:15

Norbert Hofer (left) and Alexander Van der Bellen share the stage during the Austrian Presidential election campaign in May.


GOOD NEWS! A CHALLENGE TO THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION RUNOFF, in which Alexander Van der Bellen was delcared the winner, was filed today by Freedom Party (FPÖ) leader Heinz-Christian Strache,

As you recall, it was the postal ballots that pushed former leader of the Green Party, Van der Bellen - who ran as an independent - over the line to defeat FPÖ candidate Norbert Hofer. The margin of victory was under 1 percentage point, or roughly 31,000 votes.

Strache filed an official challenge at the Constitution Court, saying “Without these glitches, irregularities and breaking of laws, Hofer could have become president. I think a re-election is very realistic."

NSU trial update – State Intelligence Service implicated in funding murder weapon

Tino Brandt covers his face as he testifies in the Munich Higher Regional Court about his interactions with the so-called National Socialist Underground.


THE PROCEEDINGS CONTINUE, NOW IN THEIR 287TH DAY, centered around the testimony of 41-year-old Tino Brandt, who is currently serving a prison sentence for sexually abusing minors. He is being questioned as the possible supplier of the money to buy the Ceska 83,7.65 mm Browning pistol that was allegedly used in the 9 murders of Turkish nationals in Germany between 2000 and 2007.

Brandt is a former police informant who was forced to give testimony by lawyers for Ralf Wohlleben. Wohlleben is one of the defendents, who is accused of supplying the pistol to the two accused murderers, Uwe Böhnhardt and Uwe Mundlos. Wohlleben denies he played such a role and, when he broke his silence earlier this year, implicated Tino Brandt. Wohlleben said or suggested that Brandt had organized the money to buy the Ceska pistol.

Hofer sees no trace of politics in election result -- asks fans to respect it

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2016-05-24 17:41

Norbert Hofer and H-C Strache enter the press conference room on Tuesday, May 24. Hofer made clear he would not run for Chancellor himself but would support Strache's bid "with all his personality."

In a news conference today, presidential candidate Norbert Hofer and FPÖ party leader Heinz-Christian Strache made statements and took questions. They offered that there would be no protest of the close election result, but Strache said they had received a lot of letters [of complaints] and would follow up on them. “Only then can you tell if there is some truth” about irregularities so many are reporting.

Strache also called for a new electoral system with a restriction on the absentee ballot.

But Hofer said he could see no trace of “politics” interfering anywhere in the country and requested that Austrians respect the election results. Despite the outcome, he didn't regret his candidacy in any way and called the election campaign an "incredibly positive experience."

Sorry, it's a short one. It doesn't start until 28 minutes in, after the walk, so it's only the 2nd half, with a young Austrian speaker. But a good crowd.

I'm going to attach an article here by Frank Jordans of The Associated Press that I think is informative and pretty fair.

Election fraud in Austria? Establishment candidate squeaks by to become President

Published by carolyn on Mon, 2016-05-23 12:26

This is not what I wanted to post here today, but take a good look even if it makes you sick. Austrians and Europe have six years of this refugee-welcoming, super-liberal traitor Van der Bellen in office. I'm afraid his questionable win undermines the patriot movement Europe-wide because hopes were so high. It should not be so readily accepted, and maybe it won't be.


This outcome is incredible to me, and not fully believable, but the FPOe, Freedom Party of Austria, is not contesting the narrow victory of Alexander van der Bellen by 30,000 mail-in votes.

According to the website of the Interior Ministry, the final vote is 2,223,458 votes for Hofer, 2,254,484 for Van der Bellen. This means that VdB got a huge margin of the mail-in (also called absentee and postal) vote. The German government English-language website Deutsche Welle posted a brief report that explained it thusly:

Norbert Hofer should win, but all votes not counted yet

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2016-05-22 19:20

Preliminary final vote results from the Austrian Interior Ministry

I've been following this election news all day, but don't want to celebrate before the winner is officially announced, expected around 3 a.m. my time at the earliest. All FPOe supporters are feeling cautious about what the Left might be up to with the mail-in vote counting, called the postal vote in Austria.

While we wait, please read the excellent detailed coverage at The New Observer, which follows European right-wing parties closely. I was thrilled as usual to read these lines:
