Sellfishness
by
Ivan Grech Mintoff

Maltese society is unique. Not uniquely better than other societies, but good and distinctly different. We have our own idiosyncratic morals, a distinct culture and particular set of values that we have inherited from our parents and grandparents that we want to pass on to our children. We are a tolerant and democratic people that believe in democracy, in uncensored newspapers, equality before the law without regard for birth, wealth or ancestry; the universal franchise and regular elections. Historically, our political class and our political system served Malta well.

Our indigenous, social traditions have deep roots and have been in tune with the values and traditions of Malta. Our real progressives have always had a deep concern for the downtrodden. We have always cheered and helped the underdog. At the same time, we have valued the family and the independence of the country. Many seem to believe that national feeling is intrinsically conservative, but plenty of 'nationalists' around the world have been self-conscious left-wingers. The leaders of the 1848 uprisings against the monarchical order across Europe were overwhelmingly men of the left. Even today, plenty of leftist movements define themselves in terms of national resistance against foreign-backed oligarchies.

However, in recent years our political system - in particular the present leadership of the previous socialists party - has been replaced by a new "media driven" elite. Supposedly liberal and supposedly progressives. But look closely and you will see that they are in fact disassembling the all that makes us truly Maltese bit by bit: our economy, our coin, our decision-making, our sense of morality, our traditions and our values.

Malta is being stripped of 'Valuri Maltin' on a daily basis.

The new elite have the ability to turn bad news into great news through media spin. They have no ideological compass, see nothing as self-evidently true, and therefore think nothing of presenting the opposite of yesterday's policy as new and fresh thinking. Their word counts for nothing. They are happy to give voters promises they know they are unable to keep. They are equally happy to do the opposite of what they promised voters in the election campaign and present it as in the interest of the nation.

True liberals would want to limit the authority of the government and strengthen the rule of law. But the liberals in control of our government honour our laws and our democracy more when they are breached than when they are observed. Their perversion of the rule of law is definitely not to Malta's advantage. They seem to use the power to enrich themselves and their friends and benefactors. Their investment and foreign policy decisions seem to be based more on kick-backs than national interest and this is even more true of infrastructure projects (like Mater Dei). True progressives would cheer for the underdog. But, while some struggling just above or just below the poverty line with very little help, others are given high government salaries for jobs that no one has seen them doing. Those that claim to be Progressive Liberals (PL) neither cheer for the underdog nor limit their power over us.

The so called Progressive Liberals do not believe in putting Malta first and foremost.

 In the last few months the government has announced it

    wants to remove our neutrality clause from the Constitution and return us to the statues of someone else's military base.
    has introduced gay adoption without proper research on the consequences to the children.
    wants to legalise drug taking and is currently not implementing the law to try and control it.
    wants to legalise what today is paedophilia by lowering the age of 'consent' to 13 or 15 year of age.

These policies are based on a "culture of death" in which temporary government advantage and the whims of individuals are elevated to the highest good. Our neutrality clause is based on the principle of 'Love your neighbour'. The government sees a temporary advantage in our active participation in someone else's military campaigns and wants to throw away five decades of experience of what is the true long-term national interest.

In the elections, the Progressive Liberals promised not to introduce gay adoptions. Reality proves otherwise and what their word is worth. Did anyone hear them promise to lower the age of consent, making it legal for adults to sleep with kids? No, because they knew this would be unpopular so they kept quiet about this policy during their campaign. No doubt a result of this policy will be an increase of teenage pregnancies. And this will necessitate what they will call a 'much needed and long awaited discussion' on abortion.

Also (the latest and worst so far), during the campaign they did not tell us they would introduce teaching young children that homosexuality in any form is "perfectly normal and acceptable". Who gave them such authority? Who voted for this?

These decisions regarding our kids' sexual education and sexual morals runs contrary to what has always been seen as Valuri Maltin. The decision regarding these issues has been surreptitiously taken away from our families and now is to be controlled by people we would not trust babysit our cats let alone indoctrinate our children.

I have on many occasions denounced these harmful policies. I am a Christian and a Socialist and therefore I believe "Malta l-ewwel u qabel kollox!" must be more than a vote catching slogan to be rolled out when the PL needs funds. To me, it is complete belief, a way of life.

I believe that we have to revert "back to basics". Not because we want to live in some nostalgic past, but because we believe in the reasoning behind solid principles and working for the nation not the individual.

We should see the 'nation' as the caring, protective mother. We should support Maltese society through decent work, decent wages, on which you can raise a family decently. We look after our nation so that it, in turn can look after us all when we need help. I believe these basic principles have served us well and I wish to transmit them to my children. That is my prerogative. My duty.

Let us therefore do away with petty political correctness and talk some real sense to those who seem to live on a completely different planet and who, through totally undemocratic methods, wish to impose their form of warped reality on us.

Clearly, the time is well overdue for decent Maltese folk who are happy with their type of decent society/family morals to reject this new form of imposition and state categorically to the Peppis, Debbies and Gabys that our beliefs, traditions and our families are worth far more to us than any half baked and warped new experiments which makes no sense nor is beneficial to Maltese society.

Whether you like it or not, we utterly reject your policies and are therefore holding on to the basic yet very sound and grounded ideology.

"Malta l-ewwel u qabel kollox" and solid "Valuri Maltin".

SHAME ON THE INDEPENDENT


The Malta Independent editorial: Shame on all of us


...And that brings us to the image we are discussing today, that of a small Syrian boy, who washed up on the shores of Turkey after the latest migrant tragedy. Our front page’s headline today reads: “Shame on all of us”. By this we mean that not only have Europe’s politicians failed, in terms of not coming up with a plan to help refugees so desperate that they will risk it all, but also all of us, as a human race.

Not since the dark days of Nazi Germany have we seen so many people displaced by the horrors they face at home....

----------------

What a malicious, misleading Editorial - almost as bad as those of the Zionist ToM.
Shame on the boy's parents who put their sons at risk, when they were living peacefully in Turkey.
However, they were not content - they wanted the freebies that Germany offers.

And incidentally, the majority of persons displaced in WW2 were Germans.
Kicked out of their ancestral homelands in the East - brutally raped by Soviet Mongols, callously shot as they trudged westwards.
The MV Wilhelm Gustloff, a hospital ship with clear Red Cross markings, was intentionally torpedoed by the Soviets - 9,400 women and children died.

One photo of a dead boy, fault of his parents, does not mean Europe should open its doors to the billions of aliens clamoring to enter.
This is simply Christian Cretinism, which the Jews use against us.
2,000 years of a poisonous religion that has brought us to the brink of genocide.

Managing Diversity

Link: http://www.independent.com.mt/articles/2015-10-12/local-news/Managing-diversity-and-the-glass-cliff-6736143391

Imperium Europa has always maintained that women should be allowed to reach the highest stages, both in education and employment.
However, one must be very careful of the political coherence and direction. We can promote diversity among sexes between our Peoples and within our Regions but we cannot incorporate and integrate aliens who are led by different beliefs. Women who do not object to constant oppression and subject themselves to imposed limitations. Men who impose the wearing of hijabs and burqas on our women, who are raised in this discrimination (reference to Theo Van Gogh's 'Submission' movie). The two political drives would lead to a mess.


Imperium Europa Chapter 35: The Role of Women
"Within the Dominium women will be encouraged to pursue their education, to its highest reaches. No post will be barred from them."
"Women will be urged to rediscover their original sacred role, that of bearers of the Race. Within them, within their sacred bodies, lies the very future of our Race."

IMPERAT.ORG 18:53 - 19:42
"Men and women born free, educated to take care and guide their own lifestyles. Complete Individual freedom, complete responsibility, no gender distinctions within the Dominium, people free to seek their inclinations and rise to any level they aspire to. However there will be no place for women in the Elite army. Never exposed to the danger of warfare for it is sheer madness to place the bearers of the Race in combat situations. We hold our women in awe and respect"

"My right to dress as I please stops when it impinges on another person's right to enjoy security," Dr Dalli said, adding the government was considering changing the law to make it "clearer".

She said that the issue is not about a religion or other and nobody should take any offence.

The minister's words came after PN MP Jason Azzopardi had said Maltese law demands visual recognition, so wearing a burqa must be prohibited.

Jason Azzopardi - the same person who claimed that "Malta is not multicultural enough"
He is a 'politician', a lawyer and a University professor.
Yet his ideas goes against the interest of the Maltese electorate which continues to elect him. An electorate which does not wear a burqa. An electorate which never voted for multiculturalism but for a party that 'promised' pushback.
One is well entitled to call him a traitor.

Teaching sexuality to children

by
Simon Mercieca

On Friday, 9 October, I was invited by Ivan Grech Mintoff to be a guest on his programme Exodus on F-Living. He wanted to discuss the current government’s policy on sexual education. It resulted very clearly that the Ministry of Education is hijacked by a group of individuals, all sharing the same sexual ideology, if not also orientation, and want to impose their own views of sexuality on the rest of the nation.

Amongst other things, this group wants to promote - through a sponsored publication from an abortion lobbyist in the USA – their own values of sexuality, including that of masturbation among young children, and that such  teaching should start at kindergarten level. Perhaps, this may appear an exaggerated and far-fetched proposal. However, it is not. Grech Mintoff presented proof, during his programme. The debate rippled amongst teachers and parents, and continued on the Facebook page of the Minister himself. A person posted online and stated that, at a particular kindergarten school abroad, a cake was made in the form of a penis and another in the form of a vagina. This was part of a pedagogical process. Obviously, the young kids were given a piece of these to eat in an educational experiment to teach our young children not to be afraid of sex. It seems that there are individuals within the Education Ministry who fantasize about this sort of pedagogy for our kindergartens. For many of us, this type of penis-cake is more fitting for a bachelor’s or a hen’s party than to a school environment.

Let us stop for a moment and change the scenario. Imagine that instead of a classroom, this penis-shaped cake was baked in a religious orphanage and the cook was a priest or a friar. What would the media’s reaction be? No doubt the priest would be dragged into court accused of being a paedophile. But if the same experiment is carried out by other secular individuals, then the approach changes and the same persons who are pushing forward a campaign against religion in Malta, would start dubbing all this as an indispensable educational project worth supporting and investing in!

This singular approach explains why the liberal arts worldwide have fallen into the trap of relativism. I expect that the same situation will be developing here in Malta where we have been promoting this cult of relativism.

It is not the action that is being condemned but the person behind the action. If the person is a secular, a Liberal or a Leftist, then his or her action is considered right, correct and legitimate. If the same sexual action is done by someone who is religious and Conservative then that action is defined as wrong and condemnable. This sort of approach, full of double standards, is isolating the same liberal persons who are promoting such type of projects. In the case of Malta, this has led the Educational Ministry into the hole, overshadowing a lot of good work that is being done in the vocational sector.

Despite the fact that Grech Mintoff’s programme Exodus is aired at the same time of Malta’s most popular programme Xarabank, it still had an audience and the programme received over 800 sms. Despite his limited resources, Grech Mintoff is succeeding in exerting pressure on the Government and forcing it to change direction. The Minister himself will be on the programme on Friday to discuss and explain his position about these types of sexual projects. 

Until recently, it was thought that conservatism in Malta, in the form of organized religion or politics, had fallen into the trap of isolation. The Conservatives within the Nationalist Party started to call themselves Liberals, in an attempt to make themselves relevant in society. Labour too started to see itself as Liberal, abandoning, in the process, its social democratic values. Labour seems to be realizing that it has been following the wrong path distancing it from its own congregation. The situation may be a little bit different in the PN. I don’t think that the PN is really sure which path to take.

After the fall of Communism, most of those who in the West searched for social justice started to give more importance to the spirtual dimension in their lives. This is why the PN needs to start researching the history of its roots, not the ones fabricated, to give a false impression that it is a Liberal Party, but the truth behind the concepts of Religio et Patria.

There is an affinity between Communism and Liberalism. They share a language lacking in moral discourse. Liberalism is repeating the same mistake of Communism where religion and spirituality is concerned. Till now, all efforts to replace the moral discourse of religion with a new dialogue about ethics has abysmally failed. Without the component of spirituality, all moral discourse is destined to collapse like a packet of cards. Certainly, the sexual ethics that one particular lobby is striving to impose in Malta has met with strong resistance from the rank and file of Labour.

Communists and Liberal atheists share one common element and goal; the creed of negation. This Government too started to embrace this philosophy but is starting to realize that politically the creed of negation does not work. People want to have a positive outlook on life. This was Labour’s message before the election. Despite all that is said about established religions, throughout their history, they strived to offer to their followers a positive outlook on life. This explains why they have survived over centuries.

Despite the support that Evarist Bartolo and the Gay Movement received to introduce these types of books from gay activitists and humanists, the stampede on the Ministry was so strong that the Ministry had to go Canossa, and stop the distribution of these books on gay and lesbian sexuality and abandon, temporarily at least, all sorts of bizarre projects. I am sure that even avowedly secular parents have opposed this distribution of such books. Those in Malta, who fancy the introduction of penis-shaped cakes to be eaten in our kindergarten classes, will have to shelve, at least temporarily, their plans.

This goes to prove that, once again, a one-person crusade can bring about a change in Government policies. 

-----------------

Liberals emerged after WW2 from Socialism.
Socialism emerged before, well before from Communism.
The three Ideologies are obsessed with Equality.

Like sunflowers they tilt to the East - they are bedfellows.
Liberals are the worst tyrants today - DCG is a prime example.
Liberals peddle destructive policies that gnaw at the vitals of our Race and Civilisation.

Here, their target are our children, at a very young age.
Most originators of such policies were and are Jews:  Reich, Spock, and the Lesbics:
Bella Abzug, Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan  - all Jews.

This is another facet of the attack on the White Race by this Tribe of Rodents in Human Form.
They are the Cosmic manifestation of that Satanic Force of Prime Evil, let loose on our planet millions of years ago.
But their Dark Era of Kalyuga expired in Dec. 2012 - Now is the beginning of The Golden Dawn: Kritayuga.

An eternal struggle between Good and Evil.

http://www.maltatoday.com.mt/comment/blogs/66530/hatred_is_ultimately_linked_to_ignorance#.V2JvmNR95kg


Hatred is ultimately linked to ignorance
Those applauding Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric do not see beyond his anti-immigrant rhetoric and fail to connect the dots that his hate speech is potentially dangerous for all of us


I’ve noticed a recurring thread in the recent events all over the world, be it the alarming support for Trump as he runs for President of the most powerful country in the world on a platform which appeals to bigotry, or the hooligan violence at Euro 2016 or the massacre at a gay club in Orlando,
It is the hatred of the “other”; those who are different, who are not like us, although the “us” in this demographic keeps changing depending which side of the fence you are on and what your pet peeve is.

And more often than not, the hatred is as a result of a dire lack of general knowledge and a profound ignorance which stems from a lack of reading.

Sometimes it is simply a refusal to mix with people of a different cultural, political or religious belief system, because so many are content to surround themselves with clones who are carbon copies of themselves so that they do not have to question or open the doors of their minds even just a crack, but can all sit around, nodding furiously and agreeing among themselves on any given topic. It’s so much nicer and safer that way after all, isn’t it?
Those applauding Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric (including many Maltese people who seem to think that Trump is the best invention since sliced bread) do not see beyond his anti-immigrant rhetoric and fail to connect the dots that his hate speech is potentially dangerous for all of us.

The mass shooting at the Pulse club in Orlando has given more fuel to Trump’s fire because the gunman was said to have proclaimed allegiance to ISIS. But Omar Mateen was born and raised in the United States so the illegal immigrant argument does not wash.

The US is made up of second and third generation immigrants so what does Trump plan to do – deport anyone whose ancestors did not arrive on the Mayflower (even though they, too, were immigrants)?
Mateen’s obvious homophobia was the problem and what appears to be his own repressed sexuality according to latest reports which state that he visited gay chat rooms and had even frequented the same club himself. The other glaring problem, of course, is that people like him can buy a machine gun so easily in the first place.

Some comments I saw bizarrely tried to blame Barack Obama for this latest shooting, because he has done nothing  “to change the gun laws” when the President’s efforts on this issue have been continuously blocked by Republicans in Congress (backed by the powerful gun lobby, the NRA).   Again, everything points to a superficial reading of headlines, because many are simply too lazy to delve deeper into an issue but just fire off a comment parrot-style.

Meanwhile in France, what should be a celebration of football has been plagued by violence, between what are said to be trained Russian hooligans and British fans, who are themselves no strangers to hooliganism. In fact the Russian ‘fighters’ as they call themselves are considering it a badge of honour that they are hitting back against English supporters in these clashes.
One Russian was quoted by the BBC as saying, “In the 70s and 80s everyone would bow down before the English… Now there are different hooligans. These are different times.”
It is all very pointless, has ruined the atmosphere of the long-awaited Euro 2016 and has threatened to disrupt other international events as well, including the World Cup.
And while here we may not (as yet) be facing the possibility of a demagogue as leader or violent football clashes or hate crimes against gays or mass shootings, the hatred and aggression which is spewed on a daily basis online against those who are different is enough to leave you with a very bitter taste.
Once again, this is a result of ignorance, a superficial understanding of current events, and a parochial, insular mentality which prevents people from accepting a divergent point of view, but insists on a “I’m going to badger you to death with my opinion” kind of approach to discussion.
I have lost count of the number of topics which could be potentially interesting, that become completely derailed and which degenerate into a free-for-all of name calling and insults because of an inability to stick to the point.  In too many instances, the default position of many people is to resort to ad hominem attacks rather than to debate the actual topic at hand. 
Nowhere is this more the case than when it comes to politics which has veered away from discussing what the politicians do, but has for several years now become an excuse to target private citizens simply for their political views.  The way things stand, I can only see this getting worse in a tit-for-tit type of retaliation which, much like a gunman machine-gunning everyone in sight, cares very little about who gets hurt.

-------------------


Only a woman could have written such a superficial and ultimately stupid article.
So, it is a lack of reading that make leading anthropologists what they are!
Shockley, Eysenck, Carlton Coon, Lothorp Stoddard, Oliver Revilo....

JA MNEJKA!

http://www.independent.com.mt/articles/2016-12-01/newspaper-leader/Editorial-Human-rights-Stateless-children-is-a-national-disgrace-6736167348


Editorial - Human rights: Stateless children is a national disgrace

It is nothing short of a national disgrace that the Maltese government is willing to bend over backwards and defy its agreement with the European Commission for people who are able to pay hundreds of thousands of euros to acquire citizenship, while at the same time it leaves children born in Malta stateless.

Partit Demokratiku, quite rightly, raised the issue of the Malian nationals who are facing imminent deportation, including children who were born in Malta.  The party highlighted that these children should be treated as Maltese citizens, and this newspaper would go one step further and urge that they are given Maltese citizenship because no one, particularly children, should be left stateless.

       After all, these children are Maltese for all intents and purposes: they were born in Malta, they have fully integrated into Maltese society in ways that their parents never could, they have never even seen their parents’ homeland and they go to school in Malta and they are friends of our own children.

Deporting these children would leave an indelible stain on the country’s reputation – at home and abroad alike.  These are basic human rights that the country is morally, if not legally, obliged to uphold.

There is a serious lacuna in the country’s legislation, and it is one that the international community has for too long now been requesting Malta to fill.

The problem has been flagged time and time again.  For example, none other than the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child has expressed grave concern about cases of children, mostly with respect to the children of irregular migrants, who are not provided with birth registration.

The Committee has stressed its concern that there is no provision in the Citizenship Act for the acquisition of Maltese citizenship by a child born in Malta who would not be eligible for citizenship of any other country because of its parents’ life situation.

It urged Malta to “ensure that all children born in its territory are registered at birth, regardless of the status of their parents, with particular attention to children in single-parent families and/or irregular migration situations”.

It also called on Malta to “ensure that a child born in Malta to parents who are foreigners, but unable to pass on their nationality, or to parents who themselves are stateless or whose nationality is unknown, is granted citizenship.”

But such pleas have continually fallen on deaf ears, and the country simply cannot allow this situation to persist.

There is something intrinsically incongruous when you have a government that does not bat an eyelid when it is criticised for its programme of selling Maltese citizenships to the wealthy on the one hand, and denying the underprivileged the means by which to address their statelessness.

The Home Affairs Minister recently told the media that were Malta to sign the United Nations’ 1954 and 1961 conventions on statelessness – key instruments in the protection of fundamental human rights of stateless persons – human resources would be strained and the system would become clogged up with so many more irregular migrants claiming they are stateless.

The fact remains that there are children being born stateless in Malta is entirely unacceptable in this day and age.

-----------


A disgraceful Editorial, a disservice to Malta and its People.
Partit Demokratiku and its Leader, The Hon Marlene Farrugia, have shown they are unfit to lead - they are simply a poor imitation of the Christian Hypocrites.
And the sooner they formally join them, the better for both.

And these children of tender age are not Maltese - no matter that they were born in Malta and have Maltese friends.
How puerile can these Liberals, with their Jesus Poison, be.
Africans are baby machines - and if we grant citizenship, the Kaffirs will start streaming in and plopping their golliwogs.

And everyone knows that the UN is dominated by tin pot countries, those very countries that disgorge their populations onto us.
And Human Rights do not exist - Only Individual Rights do; the right to live one's life, freely.
And Equality is a myth, invented by the Jews in order to weaken and finally destroy the White Man.

OUT!  All of them! Parents and children alike.
OUT! Including those White whores who cohabited with them, along with their innocent, mongrel offspring.
OUT! Those Racial Traitors who adopted Black children, future potential destroyers of the Europid Race.

As for the Liberal Instigators, the worst of the lot - WE WILL HANG YOU ALL!

TMID Editorial: Migration - Where is the solidarity?

 The Mediterranean migrant situation hardly affects Malta anymore, with the country having become an indifferent spectator to the daily tragedies that occur off our southern shore. But despite the fact that we have, in the last two or three years, barely participated in the humanitarian missions at sea, it seems that our political stance has remained unchanged.

Earlier this week a vessel called the Golfo Azzurro, which is operated by Spanish NGO Open Arms, picked up three migrants near Lampedusa. The crew requested to disembark the rescued people in Italy and Malta, but neither of the two countries welcomed the migrants with open arms.

Both governments refused to allow the ship to enter their respective ports.

Information was at first very scarce. Our newsroom was told, when we tried to make out what was happening, that the ship had only anchored off Malta because some crew members had bought flight tickets from Malta. When we contacted a spokesperson for Home Affairs Minister Michael Farrugia, we were told that there was no information about the case.

But government sources, speaking to other, more ‘friendly’ sections of the media, confirmed that Malta had refused the ship entry. And the Italian government was doing the same. This was confirmed to The Malta Independent by the Open Arms’ Head of Operations.

After spending more than 24 hours waiting outside Maltese waters, the vessel sailed towards Pozzallo in Sicily, where it was also turned back. The Italians, it seems, had a change of heart and the vessel was yesterday evening steaming towards Sicily for a second time.

This is not the first time that Malta has refused to take in rescued migrants. Many have correctly pointed out that the migrants were saved near Lampedusa, which is an Italian territory, and that, according to international law, we had no obligation to take them in. Some argued that, had Malta allowed the vessel to disembark the migrants here, we would have created an ‘ugly’ precedent.

International law states that people rescued at sea should be taken to the nearest safe port – in this case Lampedusa. To further strengthen the point that Italy should have taken them in, the operation was being coordinated by Rome.

But once again politicians, lost in their bickering over fine legal points, seem to have forgotten that on this boat, bobbing up and down on choppy waters, are three human beings who have escaped persecution and threats.

There were cases in the past where delays caused by political bickering cost the lives of men, women and children. One such instance was the 11 October 2013 tragedy, where a sinking boat capsized, taking over 300 people down with it, while Italy and Malta argued over who should go to the rescue.

In this case it seems that the migrants were not in imminent danger, but blocking them on a boat in international waters with no one offering to give them shelter is not a very humane thing to do.

Where is the solidarity?

------------

If one reads just a few of the previous posts, one realizes that this Editorial fits in with the Independent's agenda of falsehoods.
An Editorial based on The Jesus Poison, that religion of Death that forces us to embrace our Enemies -
hardened, hateful Enemies whose goal is to subjugate us, exterminate us if need be.

The Independent, like the Zionist ToM, stands with our Enemies and against our People.
Two vile Zionist outlets who daily pour this 2,000 year old Poison, that now labels itself as "Liberalism".
Two pernicious papers, alongside the corrupt Catholic church, that keep the People blind as to who the real Enemy is.

Our People are alone, bewildered, clinging to the two Lesbic Prostitutes, the two main Parties.
Clowns performing in that Pigsty, we call Parliament.
Only We, of Imperium Europa refuse to submit and surrender.
