    “It Ain’t Me, Babe!” Liar Juncker Blames Smart Swiss! 


    “…I have always noticed on holidays that when I met Swiss people, they have dim view of me….”

    https://www.thelocal.ch/20180215/eu-juncker-european-commission-president-the-swiss-have-a-completely-false-view-of-me

    =

    =

    “I think the Swiss government and the Swiss media have projected an image of me that in no way corresponds with reality…”

    Poor Liar Juncker, who let slip years ago that he lies without conscience. He was this week talking about on-going talks with the Swiss Government and blaming them for everything.

    The Swiss, of course, must be anathema to Brussels and all its authoritarian denizens, because of their democratic constitution. Citizens there have the right to hold their leaders to account, by referenda.

    What must Liar Juncker think of that?

    =

    Well, he’s told us!

    PS – Speaking of liars, however, that Luxemburg louse has no monopoly on mendacity…

    Theresa May and Michel Barnier fooled British public to hide ‘REAL’ £90billion Brexit bill, EU chiefs claim

    Some Swiss Sense On How To Nail Lying ‘Migrants!’ 


     Gambar terkait

    Gregor Rutz is a sensible man, a leading legislator for the Swiss patriot party, the SVP.

    =

    Hasil gambar untuk gregor rutz svp

    =

    He’s currently pressing ahead with a wise reform.

    But what’s absurd is that it’s a reform which should never have been needed! It’s an obvious part of any country’s defence against illegal invasion by lying undesirables, namely – .

    …a parliamentary initiative that would allow the electronic devices of asylum seekers to be checked for evidence of their identity….

    ALLOW?

    Since when does any illegal alien have the right to say no to such basic security checks?

    The very idea that illegals have ‘rights’ is an affront to common sense, a logical nonsense.

     As Herr Rutz told media-

    “With this new possibility we are sending out a clear signal that we don’t accept fake asylum seekers. Then fewer people will come here because Switzerland is less attractive.”

    Good.

    Indeed, making one’s country less attractive to crimmigrants is more than just a good idea.

    =

    =

    It should be a moral obligation!

    And the SVP man also said that anyone who refused to comply with the measure would be sent home.

    It almost goes without saying that the Green Party have chosen to oppose the move.

    =

    =

    Some Turk-born lawyer named Sibel Arslan, who has somehow got onto the Swiss National Council, was quick to slam the measure…

    =

    Hasil gambar untuk sibel arslan

    .

    “The proposal is a fake populist solution!”

    Huh? What on earth is the daft bint yapping about? Does she mean the SVP are ‘fake populists?’ Or that the proposal is a ‘fake solution?

    Since populists only means those who speak up for the people and represent their aspirations, I’d say the Swiss People’s Party is hardly fake.

    On Swiss National Day, Arrogant Elitists Fretting! 

    They have a very good track record of seeking to give citizens a say via their country’s enviable direct democracy system.

    As for the solution, sure, it’s not going to make the crimmigrant menace vanish overnight, but it’s not a bad step to start with.

    It would, she whined, be an intrusion into the private life of those concerned.

     

    =

    Those concerned can sod off back to whence they came if they don’t want their precious ‘private lives’ intruded upon.

     

    They forfeited any such privilege when they came parasiting across the Med or the Aegean.

    Uninvited guests unwilling to comply with simple requirements placed on them by their unfortunate hosts deserve not a Green mantle of protection but the bum’s rush!

    Th only practical objection raised by Shrill Sibel is that people who really wanted to hide their identity could use apps where data was deleted instantly or change their SIM cards over. 

    Yes, they could, but every extra step undesirable aliens have to take offers a chance to keep them on their toes, all the better to trip them up.

    And Arslan’s at least as much concerned about what would be done with any data obtained and who would have access to this.

    The obvious answer should be that ALL such info should be sedulously circulated around all government departments and to all police and security agencies of every Western country.

    That’s perhaps exactly what she fears, when she grizzles that the Rutz plan could be the start of a slippery slope with the practice being used for other purposes.

    It only, dear comrade, needs to be used once -to get the swine OUT of Switzerland. But if you think of other useful uses, be sure to let us know!

    Yes! Swiss Bag-Head Ban To Include Red Nazi Antifa! 


    Hurrah for the Swiss in St Gallen, where regional legislators earlier this month approved a bag-head ban, which not only slaps down  primitive burka-bints…

    =

    =

    ….but also prohibits anyone from covering their face in public if they present a security risk or threaten social or religious peace

    So that can be used to hammer Red Nazi Antifa scum, internationally infamous for launching attacks on patriots whilst concealing their cowardly countenances…

    =

    Hasil gambar untuk G20 black bloc violence

    …as our selection of photos confirms!

    What is truly shocking about the Swiss canton’s admirable action, however, is the slim majority by which it passed, a mere 57 to 55 vote on second reading.

    Even Switzerland, it seems, has a large Enemy Within element among its own citizens!

    As usual, liberal media hacks have expressed indignation, one local editor whining that it’s wrong for cops to have to make an “instant assessment” as to whether a person who covers their face is a threat. 

    What’s wrong with that?

    Cops are trained to assess situations where trouble is likely. An arrogant bag-head, flaunting her sectarian triumphalism, is not hard to spot.

    =

    Nor are louts like those in our photos!

    Meanwhile, better still, that citizens’ initiative rolls on, having got enough support to force a nationwide referendum, on a proposal which, delightfully, goes further than St Gallen’s new rule in that there is no assessment of risk — instead it proposes a general ban on covering the face in public, apart from certain exceptions for health, safety or the weather.

    That’s what all civilised countries should be doing, and also looking at the sexist shairah aspect, the subjugation of women.

    =

    The potential new law would also ban anyone from forcing another person to cover their face because of their gender.

      Well said, Ross.
      They all should be deported, the Antifas along with the bag-heads, regardless of their citizenship.
      Where I come from, it has always been seen as only reasonable to expect people who don’t like their country to accept a free ticket to wherever they do like.
      In the Cold War, we felt that peaceniks should be sent to Moscow, or Beijing.
      In the present day situation, Somalia would be a perfect destination for jihadists, now that Daesh is out of action.

    Evil ‘Asylum’ Imam Gets ‘Non-Custodial’ 18 Months! 


    An Ethiopian who served as imam at a mosque in Winterthur has been found guilty of inciting violence after calling on worshippers to murder non-practising Muslims.

    No photo available in The Leftal, sorry, The Local…

    ……….

    …so here’s what we imagine he may look like.

    We’ve followed this saga over the past year or so…

    Pray Or Die? C’mon, Swiss, Deport This Brute! 

    ============

    Deport Brutal Bigots Who Beat Up Righteous Muslims! 

    ….and would in most circumstances be pleased to hear the foul fiend has been convicted and facing suitable punishment.

    =

    Not that the most suitable punishment for such an evil savage is available in Switzerland, since there’s no death penalty!

    But when we read of the court’s idea of suitable justice, we can only recoil in dismay.

    The 25-year-old was handed a non-custodial sentence of 18 months and banned from Switzerland for 10 years…

    https://www.thelocal.ch/20171124/imam-found-guilty-of-incitement-to-violence reports.

    What the Hell!?!

    ….guilty of three counts of public incitement to crime and violence, multiple depiction of violence…

    Oh, and …working without a permit.

    We can skip the permit part and remind you of the background.

    …during Friday prayers on October 21st last year at the An’Nur mosque the accused called for the killing and burning of Muslims who refused to take part in communal prayers.

    Jihadist of scum like burning, don’t they?

    Who’s likely to forget what ISIS did to that Jordanian POW?

    The primitive pig in Winterthur was also convicted of having posted violent images of executions on Facebook and distributing these to other people.

    Now we get to the pertinent part of the story.

    The asylum seeker…

    Yes, he’s one of the phoney ‘refugees’ who have over-run Europe over the past couple of years.

    But what about that 18 month ‘non-custodial’ sentence?

    Since the Swiss are to expel him…

    =

    …I can see why they might not want to waste good Swiss francs on the provision of board and lodgings for a year  and a half. I conceded that in a previous post.

    Swiss Make A Good Move, But Thousands More Needed! 

    ===

    But if they’re going to deport the swine anyway, surely a more serious sentence, albeit ‘non-custodial,’ is in order?

    Life, perhaps. Or at least ten years. Pour encouragez les autres!

    Then we get to the ten years actually specified in the court’s decision.

    WHY is his exclusion from the country whose hospitality he sol disgracefully abused ONLY for ten years?

    In the previous post, it was suggested that a 20-year ban would be imposed. I questioned that too.

    Does the court seriously think that, after a decade ( or two) back where he belongs, the dirty sectarian beast should then be free to return to the scene of the crime?

    Meanwhile, I reiterate my point, oft-made, that if incitement to murder merits action in this case…

    ====

    …why should it not apply to all those barbarous brutes who parade their hate through the streets of civilised countries?

    A Swiss Reminder Of John Major’s Despicable Euro-Grovel 


    AHA.

    Even on Alpine slopes, namby-pamby weeds can flourish!

    =

    =

    What else can we deduce from The Leftal, sorry, The Local’s news, that ‘a group of Swiss citizens has launched a petition aiming to make it illegal under Swiss law for parents to slap or smack their children.’

    =

    =

    The wet wallies call themselves ‘No To Violence Against Children,’ and they plan to hand in a petition to the Swiss government with the aim of changing its mind, after the lower house of parliament voted against legislation on the subject last May.

    https://www.thelocal.ch/20171113/should-parents-be-banned-from-smacking-their-children’

    A quick slap from a responsible mum or dad can work wonders, but it’s up to each parent to decide when or if such sensible discipline should be applied.That’s presumably what the legislators thought.

    Unlike some other countries, Switzerland doesn’t qualify a slap by parents in the home as corporal punishment and has faced criticism from the UN on the subject.

    If some pinko twits disagree, then Switzerland has a democratic constitution, does it not, which gives them the right to start a citizens’ initiative?Don’t collect signatures for a petition…

    ….but for a referendum, and let EVERY Swiss decide in the ballot-box whether or not a smack or a trip to the wood-shed should be outlawed.

    But there’s no mention of the whiners doing that.Perhaps they suspect their far-out folly would be voted down if subjected to the test of democracy.

    =

    But why, above, do I mention John Major?

    =

    Because it was he who U-turned most cravenly, and bowed to the robed cretins of the Euro-Court, when they ordered him to end corporal punishment in the UK schools.

    Not only did Major thus scorn his own citizens, who had NO sympathy with the creeps who wanted to ban the cane and the tawse from class-rooms throughout the British Isles…

    =

    Scots tawse in action

    ===

    …but he made himself a laughing-stock too!

    =

    =

    When the House of Commons, not long before the Clown-Court ruling, voted for the continuation of corporal punishment, Major had cast his vote with the majority of MPs and reflected the majority will of the British people.

    ======

    Yet within months, when HMV in Strasbourg snapped their wine-sodden robes and ordered him to flout his conscience and diss democracy, Major did so, shamefully.

    =======

    A spineless cur  beyond compare!

    Yet these days, he’s dredged up as a champion of the Anti-Brexit cause.

    Crimmigrant Collaborator MP Convicted, Yet UNPUNISHED! 


    A Swiss regional politician was convicted Thursday for helping 24 migrants to illegally cross from Italy into Switzerland and for repeatedly inciting others to do the same.

    https://www.thelocal.ch/20170929/swiss-politician-convicted-of-helping-migrants-enter-illegally

    Yet convicted of a crime akin to treason, this Socialist Party legislator has been…

    …sentenced to a suspended fine…!

    She helped Eritreans and Syrians stuck at the train station in Como, near the Swiss border, in mid-2016…

    ==

    =

    ...with not the faintest humanitarian excuse, because, as the judge recognised, the migrants “were not in a country at risk but in Italy, and could have been helped there.”

    So by what possible logic can the prosecutor have brought himself to say that Bosia Mirra’s intentions were good?

    Or that these crimmigrants’ circumstances may have been tragic!

    There is no evidence to show that either the traitress’s intentions were good or that those illegals were in any way ‘tragic‘ figures.

    We’ve protested against the sad-sack sentences handed down by British courts, a few months or a few years to swine who sneak illegals into the UK…

    British Scumbags Get 30 Months? NOT Enough! 

    But the Swiss judiciary, and, so it seems, the prosecution agency, appears to need a major overhaul, if they refuse to take seriously this kind of  criminal activity by rotten reds.

    On Swiss National Day, Arrogant Elitists Fretting! 


    It’s August 1st, Switzerland’s National Day, so greetings to all our Swiss readers!

    After our recent post on how the EUSSR is threatening Swiss democracy…

    NB Team Brexit! Brussels’ Swiss Lackeys War Down Democracy! 

    …somebody sent me a link to a story which I seem to have missed last month.

    How I missed it I don’t know, because it’s from The Leftal, sorry The Local, whose often biased output I often peruse.

    It’s opening words are a stanza of hope.

    The Swiss People’s Party (SVP) proposal to put Swiss law above international law would weaken Switzerland and threaten human rights…

    Swiss government slams SVP’s self-determination initiative

    Switzerland’s had a lot to put up with in recent years.

    We’ve covered the obnoxious ingrates who migrated to the Alpine country and then told their hosts it was time to change their famous flag…Islamist Flag Demands Make Swiss – and Ross – Cross! …because it grated on their sectarian prejudices.

    oooo

    And then there was the case of that equally obnoxious backward brat!

    Swiss School Panders To Sectarian Brats! 

    ooooo

    And we have heard outrageous shrilling from the human rights agitprop gangs who fawn on undesirables, like the 19-year-old dual national who intended to join Isis, saying the SEM ( Swiss Migration Office) wanted to strip him of his Swiss nationality even though he hadn’t yet been convicted of any crime.

    https://www.thelocal.ch/20170223/amnesty-slams-switzerlands-illegal-treatment-of-migrants-at-italian-border

    What kind of ‘rights’ nut-jobs would take up the case of such a vile slug and whine at his proposed exclusion?

    Hasil gambar untuk shamnesty

    Amnesty, of course!

    =======

    So it’s high time ‘human rights’ was exposed for what it is – a slogan!

    Civic rights, constitutional rights, democratic rights – no problem.

    Those are part of the contract between government and the governed in civilised countries.

    Abstract notions about some other kind of ‘rights,’ on the other hand, are an excuse for so-called ‘NGOs’ and un-elected tribunals and worse, external, supranational sticky-beaks like the ECHR, the EUSSR and…

    ..

    UN Hypocrisy – Time To Stop Crawling To Sexist Primitives? 

    …the rancid hypocrites who sit on that disgusting ‘UN Human Rights Council,’ to intrude on national sovereignty.

    But the Swiss political in-crowd don’t see it that way!

    They’re ranting and raving at the latest SVP popular initiative – which last year gathered enough signatures to put it to a referendum…

    So what’s got the Federal Council’s left-liberal lederhosen in a twist?

    Admirably entitled ‘Swiss Law Instead of Foreign Judges (Initiative for Self-Determination,’ the SVP (Swiss People’s Party) move is not complicated.

    It’s the kind of law every patriot in every country should be proud to champion, calling for Switzerland to put Swiss law above international law and, if necessary, renegotiate or renounce international treaties it has signed, including the Convention on Human Rights.

     WUNDERBAR!

    How many Brits or Aussies, for that matter, would like to see their countries extricated from that damnable convention?

    It was drawn up after WW2 but has been bastardised since, with notions of ‘rights’ that would have made the original signatories gasp.

    When Britain signed up, for example, every school-child knew that if he or she stepped out of line the cane or the strap was within easy reach of their teacher.

    Similarly with corporal punishment for criminals.

    Similarly with capital punishment, banned yet no ban ever mentioned when the convention was formulated.

    Same goes for that Refugee Convention, subject these days to wholesale deliberate misinterpretation by so-called ‘NGOs’ and all the vilest lawyer-lice to brandish at sensible governments.

    But back to the report and the SVP’s case!

    The patriot party asserts that the ‘elites’ consider international treaties to be more important than Swiss-made legislation…

    “The people and the cantons have, for example, approved the unilateral management of immigration and the expulsion of foreign criminals, but politicians refuse to apply these decisions, invoking international law…”

    And that’s ABSOLUTELY true. The establishment parties have stabbed the people in the back! Read the linked post from last week at the top of our page.

    The elite despise democracy.

    Late last year the government decided not to fully implement an SVP-led anti-immigration initiative, approved by the public in a 2014 referendum, because it would contravene its free movement agreement with the EU.
     
     

    So how does the elite feel on being told that referendum decisions should be t applied “without discussion and regardless of whether they please or do not please the ‘elites’ of federal Bern?”

     Unbelievably, the Federal RAT (German for ‘Council’) said the initiative “threatens the stability and loyalty of Switzerland…”

    HUH?

    Democracy’s THAT dangerous?

     The leftist Justice Minister Simonetta Sommaruga, who has in the past actually shown some sense, is an exemplar of the hostility shown towards self-determination, and she singled out that foul ‘rights’ convention.

    She finds it downright scary that a referendum, date yet to be determined, could allow the Swiss nation to define its own human rights.

     

    WHY the HELL NOT?

     Is she seriously saying it’s simply absurd to trust Swiss men and women to determine their laws and customs via the ballot box…

    …….

    …to do what’s best for their country without having to obtain approval from supranational court-cliques ready to cudgel them into line?

    Well, yes, she is saying exactly that about the European Convention!

    “…I think it’s absurd to talk about ending it,” she said.

    In other words, she trusts a panel of robed aliens in Strasbourg to defend Swiss rights more than she trusts her own fellow-countrymen and women?

    Oh, and here’s her take on the risk of mere voters deciding if and when a treaty has outlived its usefulness.

    ====

    “A Switzerland that wants to sign an agreement with another country but who says ‘maybe one day we won’t want to do this, we’ll maybe want to renegotiate but we don’t know yet’ is no longer a loyal partner.”
    GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY!

    She sounds like a UK Remoaner….once ye get in there, ye’ll never get out – as the old Ulster song about Purgatory goes!

    This socialist harpy could not be more explicit on her commitment to supranationalism.

    Once a country signs a treaty, it may NEVER reconsider if that treaty actually benefits its people?

    If one government adheres to some convention, all subsequent governments are thereby bound in perpetuity?


     

    Shove, it, Signorina!

      Every time somebody starts talking about human rights I know it will be about rights for illegal immigrants or some other kind of criminals or else the ever-moaning ‘gays’ and not much heard about our rights, rights of law-abiding people who live or try to live normal lives.
      It should be up to the Swiss to decide what rights people have in their own country and not that European Court or the UN.
      I wish we had the Swiss kind of democracy in Britain. Life would be so much better without foreign interference.
