Europe turns to the right after terror attacks

Yet another reminder of many throughout the years here as to which direction Europe is turning:

 

Nationalist leaders throughout the continent score political points as public opinion turns against Muslim immigrants

BRUSSELS — The Brussels attacks have given a boost to the far right in Belgium and beyond, and their anti-Islam language is finding a special resonance after another bloodbath by Islamic State extremists.

Just as the Paris attacks that killed 130 people in November reinvigorated the right-wing National Front in regional elections, last week’s bombings in the Belgian capital have given radical-right leader Filip Dewinter’s Flemish Interest party fresh impetus to re-ignite his group’s flagging fortunes.

Kremlin’s French front

Infiltrate, redirect, divide… and conquer. The objective is not only to break the EU, but get NATO kicked out. And here, we see again new information being brought up that the refugee crisis was Russian orchestrated.

 

On December 13, France will hold the second round of regional elections, which are considered a dress rehearsal before the parliamentary and presidential elections in 2017. UNIAN gathered expert opinions on what the change of the French political elites would mean for Ukraine.

In the first round of local elections, the far-right National Front led by Marine Le Pen showed the best results in six out of 13 regions of the metropolis scoring 27.88% of the votes across the country. At the same time the Republicans Party led by Nicolas Sarkozy, in alliance with the centrists, took 26.98% and topped the lists in four regions.

She is the new girl wonder of the French far right, a glamorous 25-year-old poised to break down many mainstream conservatives’ qualms about casting their vote for the Front National.

Since she was elected the youngest MP in French parliamentary history, aged 22 three years ago, while a second year Sorbonne law student, Marion Maréchal-Le Pen, niece of Front President Marine and grand-daughter of its obstreperous founder Jean-Marie, has had the fastest learning curve in French politics since Bonaparte’s.

France’s Hollande Says Islamic State Behind Paris Attacks

Update: Washington, London and Rome are next says ISIS.

If you’ve been following Global Geopolitics for a while now, you’re familiar with the continued warning of a sharp turn to the right following an event, or events. The migrant crisis was one and the attacks in Paris is another. How much more will Europe tolerate as a whole is yet to be seen. This is reminiscent on events leading to what’s Bibically prophesied as the King of the North vs. the King of the South.

The rise of a right-wing society brought on by a ‘push’ from state-sponsored terrorism eventually leading to war is soon coming to a Europe near you:

 

Friday’s Paris attacks are an “act of war” and Islamic State is behind them, French President Francois Hollande said Saturday.

“This is an act of war, and a terrorist army, the Islamic State, jihadists that made a stand against France, against the values we protect around the world, is behind this attack,” Hollande said in a televised address.

Germany’s far-right makes gains amid refugee wave

It’s oft said here that Europe needed one event to take an extreme right turn. As the refugee crisis seems to be unfolding, it looks like we’ve found the event. Chancellor Merkel has changed the landscape of Europe forever and this move will likely serve as the catalyst for the breakup of the EU as we know it today. However, in the pipeline, is still a United States of Europe which will be a leftover group with those seeking further integration with one another. Germany’s leadership knows what it’s doing and time will reveal why it proactively created a firestorm.

 

With the nation taking in huge numbers of asylum seekers, PEGIDA and other movements are seeing a resurgence

BERLIN, Germany (AFP) — Almost declared dead only months ago, Germany’s populist far-right is seeking a comeback amid a record wave of asylum -seekers, hoping to anchor itself in mainstream politics.

Shock result in Polish vote could signal larger power shift

Europe as a whole has for the longest time been one terrorist attack or economic catastrophe away from a sharp right turn. Immigration issues and resentment towards the EU project are also two others which bring the situation to a slower boil.

 

Defeat for President Bronislaw Komorowski communist-era dissident, a sign that parliamentary elections this fall could be unpredictable

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — It’s being called the biggest shock in Polish politics in years: President Bronislaw Komorowski apparently lost the first round of the country’s presidential election to a previously unknown 42-year-old member of the European Parliament.

The defeat for the communist-era dissident, who has long polled as one of the nation’s most trusted leaders, is a sign that parliamentary elections this fall could be unpredictable. It could even signal a possible return to power for Law and Justice, the right-wing group backing Sunday’s winning presidential candidate Andrzej Duda. It favors a more confrontational attitude to the European Union and neighbor Germany than that of the ruling Civic Platform. Continue reading

EXPOSED: Vladimir Putin’s secret plot to RULE Europe

Europe is already a lost continent if you’ve learned that socialism is a bridge to communism. Now all Putin’s doing is reigning it in.

 

German intelligence sources claim the country’s only mildly-eurosceptic party, Alternative for Germany (AfD), is being wooed by Russian agents as part of the campaign “to construct a network of right-wing populism in western Europe.”

According to BILD, Moscow’s Centre for Strategic Communications has drafted the blueprint for the covert operation under the title: “Putin: the new leader of international conservatism”.

Part of the Kremlin strategy includes acquiring gold dealerships through front companies to support parties friendly to it.
