This is Jan. 4, 2016, below freezing in Dresden, and the Pegida crowd looks the same as always. They are extremely faithful.

6:30 In Dresden it snowed, it is very cold, minus 4 degrees and windless. The square in front of the Semper Opera fills. The Opera House projects its now-familiar slogan: "We are not a stage for xenophobia".

The Pegida opponents are at the Postplatz having a counter-demo and all around are police buses that have these demonstrators completely encircled.

In the Church of Our Lady today is the traditional prayer for peace. After that there will be a procession and some may wish to join the counter-demonstrators "Dresden Pegidafrei" initiative.

Arab Muslims “massively” molest women on New Year's Eve in Cologne

Young woman in Cologne, Germany celebrating the New Year 2016 provokes a culture-clash with Arab  foreigners.

Cologne is, as you might remember, one of the high spots of the Welcoming Culture in Germany. The mayor, Henriette Recker, was previously responsible for running refugee services in the city—in charge of accommodating asylum-seekers.

So it is not unexpected that about 30 women have now reported to the police that they were molested in Cologne's main train station on New Year's Eve.

A group of men encircled multiple women and “with their hands they were really everywhere. This is something I've never experienced,” said a 22 year-old victim. “When we called for help, they laughed.”

From The Epoch Times

UPDATE: The Pegida venue was first changed to the Silesian square outside the station in Dresden Neustadt. At the last minute it became the Königsufer near the State Chancellery when the demonstration permit for the Silesian square went to another association, one described by Lutz Bachmann on Facebook as an "Antifa-Demo'".

At the Semperoper Plaza where Pegida has gathered from the very beginning, a different group was given permission for this date [apparently calling themselves “Dresden Nazifrei,” even though Pegida has nothing to do with Nazis]. According to The Epoch Times, at 5:30 pm a demo named "Heart Instead of Baiting" filled the square to about one-third, with people spread out with plenty of space betweem them. There was a video shown and about an hour of music and speeches by artists from the Semper Opera and the Schauspielhaus (as best I can understand). The antifa crowd was estimated at only 3,000 to 4,000.

The rise of Viktor Orban

Viktor Orban - Europe's Man of the Year?

By Carolyn Yeager

EU leadership is trying to regain control after the migrant disaster of 2015

European Union leaders are now being forced to accept that Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban was right all along, but are spinning it to make him look wrong anyway.

The mainly left-leaning leaders of the European Union who have made a mess of Europe's affairs, including allowing over a million Arab and African migrants to pour into Europe in the past year, are now trying to ameliorate the blame directed at themselves by saying at least they're not bigoted as are those on the far right.

Deutsche Welle launches an Arabic-language TV channel for all Europe

Published by carolyn on Mon, 2015-12-14 23:38

The DW Arabic-language channel is available across most of Europe beginning December 15, 2015

How timely. Wonder how long this has been in the works? Germany's state broadcaster aimed at an international audience is making it clear it thinks Arabs are in Europe to stay. The new channel will begin broadcasting tomorrow, December 15th.

The ostensible purpose is to help Arabic-speaking migrants learn what they need to know about Germany, in their own language. According to DW, the information is designed to help refugees deal with everyday life and visits to German administrative authorities, to find job opportunites and to learn German. The channel will transmit German language courses in television format.

It is good weather in Dresden - windless and ten degrees plus. Christmas music plays. The visit of Belgians is not only from the two guest speakers, Filip Dewinter and Anke van Dermeersch of the Party “Vlaams Belang”. There is also seen a "We are the people" banner in Flemish.

6:45 Lutz Bachmann opened the rally:

"First of all, warm greetings to our patriotic brothers and sisters in France," he congratulates Marine Le Pen and the National Front for their "historic victory". That was a very clear signal, and the German press is foaming with rage. Therefore, the Front National will now be reviled - and with it their voters. This "30 percent of our neighbors occupied by right-wing" would now be labeled "right-wing". The ARD  had managed eleven times to accommodate the word right-wing in a three-minute report. "But there's the brown mob of the week!" said Bachmann.

Pegida pulls large crowd, talks expansion on a rainy Monday

Published by carolyn on Mon, 2015-11-30 18:51

 Notice all the umbrellas opened up on this November 30th evening in Dresden.

The dark season is upon us, but this doesn't deter the Pegida  protestors in Dresden. They came out again in force and in high spirits, in spite of the rain, to hear Lutz Bachmann and Siegfried Doebritz, and two guests: Tommy Robinson from the UK and theologian Ernst Krahn from Nürnberg. But mostly they came out just to show their steadfastness in support for their cause: A peaceful, free Germany of Germans.

Tommy Robinson spoke in English while Lutz Bachmann translated into German sentence by sentence. He spoke of the inspiration Pegida has been and announced a sister movement made up of all Europe, plus Britain and Australia beginning on Saturday, February 6, 2016. [Full disclosure: I'm not fond of Tommy Robinson and am sorry to see him get a role in this movement. Well, where there's a vacuum, you know ...]

300 migrants went off on each other at Tempelhof Airport outside Berlin. There were violent incidents in Kreuzberg and Hakenfelde (Spandau) also, requiring hundreds of police to bring order.

Two bloody incidents in Berlin refugee camps broke out on Sunday requiring police operations.
► At 2 o'clock in the afternoon at Tempelhof Airport (Hangar 3): 120 policemen separated and subdued 300 refugees who were taking part in a mass brawl!

The Refugee Scam in Pictures

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2015-11-22 23:43

Would you want any of these young men moving into your community without family, without education, without a skill, without knowing your language? What benefit would they possibly bring? I found the first three pictures at Der Spiegel. They've removed them now.

Above: Fit young men protesting on the Greek side of the border with Macedonia. They are not allowed to pass because they are not of the currently accepted nationality. Look at the tattoos. The whole crowd here is nothing but young men.

Merkel's government demands police lie about refugee violence

Published by carolyn on Thu, 2015-11-19 23:42

A fight in a refugee shelter in Suhl, in the eastern state of Thuringia, left 11 people hurt. Police arrested 15 brawlers in the aftermath.

Are the refugee violence statistics sugar-coated?

An LKA (State Criminal Office) official told how the police downplay refugee crime - for the "civil peace". "It is not a lie, nothing is covered up, but there are things deliberately omitted," he says.

Hannover. The truth has many facets. Sometimes it can be terrible. Before his eyes, a refugee has struck another with a brutal headbutt, leaving the skull bloody. Markus Schwarz is an official of the state criminal police. He did not see the violence coming. Just a few days ago he had talked to the refugees in a relaxed way, about Islam, about German customs and about prophets in Christianity and Islam. It had seemed a very friendly atmosphere; the policeman and the university-educated Syrians had been curious to know about the other's different world. The conflict arose "out of nothing," says Schwarz. In the police report later, it said there was a dispute in an initial reception center "with a non-serious injury".
