Swedish Populists Win So Many Seats They Have Difficulty Filling Them

The populist Sweden Democrats won so many votes in the country’s recent elections that they won more seats in local governments than they had candidates to fill them.
While it is not uncommon to see empty seats in municipal governments in Sweden at the end of an election cycle, it is rare to see empty seats after an election. The Sweden Democrats (SD) now find themselves in the position of having 22 empty seats across the country in 17 municipalities due to winning such a large share of votes, SVT reports.
One of the reasons the SD have so many empty seats to fill is that the party locked in a certain number of candidates prior to the election and won more seats than they anticipated.
“On a locked list, the party itself has set up its candidates within the stipulated time, and then you can not add any names,” said Hans-Ivar Swärd, election officer at the Swedish election authority (Valmyndigheten).
The issue for the populist party, according to Swärd, is that they have an elected mandate but due to not having people to fill the seats, they cannot fulfil that mandate.
In nine municipalities the SD locked the candidate list without even having one name on it because if the list was left open the party would not have the ability to control which candidates were running for the party but this has meant empty seats in seven different municipalities.
SD municipal politician Petter Nilsson explained the reasoning behind the locked lists saying: “We chose to lock the lists to ensure that we did not get the wrong candidates, that is, those who were not Sweden Democrats.”
“It is not desirable. The best thing that could happen is that we have candidates in all municipalities and all are eligible,” he added.

About



I grew up in an ultra-orthodox Jewish home of 17 children. I was born the night my parents moved from Sydney to Melbourne. They drove interstate in a van with nine children, when my mother was nine months pregnant and I was born as soon as they drove into Melbourne.
Our family was ruled by an abusive and narcissistic father who used systematic violence and a distorted and warped interpretation of religion to control, manipulate and ultimately traumatize for over 30 years. I was kicked out of home at 13 years old and spent time on the streets, in group homes and foster care. I ended up addicted to heroin and often found myself in trouble with the law.
At nineteen I volunteered to join the Israel Defence Force in a bid to kick my addiction and do something meaningful with my life. My time as a Golani sharpshooter changed me and the experience of finally belonging to something that felt like a family helped turn things around for me.
After serving almost 3 years in the Gaza Strip I returned to Australia to start my own gyms which today are known as the largest Krav Maga centres in Australia.
I’m now often asked to comment on issues relating to self defence, counter-terrorism, being pro-Israel in Australia and the Jewish community in Melbourne.

TROP is a non-partisan, fact-based site which examines the ideological threat that Islam poses to human dignity and freedom.

https://thereligionofpeace.com/pages/site/about-site.aspx

TheReligionofPeace.com (TROP) is a pluralistic, non-partisan site concerned with Islam's political and religious teachings according to its own texts. The purpose is to counter whitewashing and explain the threat that Islam truly poses to human dignity and freedom, as well as the violence and dysfunction that ensues as a direct consequence of this religion's supremacist ideology. 

...

https://thereligionofpeace.com/pages/site/the-list.aspx

This list of terrorist attacks committed by Muslims since 9/11/01 (a rate of about five a day) is incomplete because not all such attacks are picked up by international news sources, even those resulting in multiple loss of life.  

These are not incidents of ordinary crime involving nominal Muslims killing for money or vendetta.  We only include incidents of deadly violence that are reasonably determined to have been committed out of religious duty - as interpreted by the perpetrator.  Islam needs to be a motive, but it need not be the only factor.

For example, the Munich mall shooting in July, 2016 was by a Muslim, but it is not on the list, because it was not inspired by a sense of religious duty.   

We usually list only attacks resulting in loss of life (with a handful of exceptions).  In several cases, the deaths are undercounted because deaths from trauma caused by the Islamists may occur in later days, despite the best efforts of medical personnel to keep the victims alive.

In 2014, the BBC did a thorough analysis of Islamic terror attacks occurring during the month of November.  They found 664 attacks and 5,042 deaths.  Our list has only 284 attacks and 2,515 deaths for that month, meaning that we under-counted the true extent of Islamic terror by a significant margin.  

We usually don't include incidents related to combat, such as in Iraq and Afghanistan, unless it involves particularly heinous terror tactics, such as suicide bombings or attacks on troops while they are sleeping in their barracks or providing medical care to the local population.  (The BBC study apparently did not differentiate).

We acknowledge that a handful of incidents on our list may not fit the traditional definition of 'terror attack.'  A small portion, for example, are of honor killings - although we usually omit those in which the woman is killed by her husband, since this is often indistinguishable from a crime of passion (barring explicit circumstances).  Our stance on honor killings is that the stabbing, shooting or strangling of a woman over "unIslamic" behavior constitutes Islamic terror.

Our counter reflects most of the deadly attacks on our list.  This figure may be a bit more than the number of line items, since multiple incidents are sometimes grouped into the same record.

Honor killings and attacks that result in no loss of life are not included in the counter even if they appear on the list.

Unfortunately, this list of Muslim terrorist attacks barely scratches the surface of atrocities committed in the name of Islam occurring world-wide each day.  For that reason, we don't tally up the dead and dismembered, except on a weekly and monthly basis.

Some armchair critics try to minimize the problem by contrasting the number of casualties to other statistics.  This is an unfair comparison since it does not account for the staggering amount of global resources devoted to containing Islamic terror - including the lives of security personnel.  That so many civilians are killed despite this underscores both the threat and its uniqueness, since other religions do not merit this attention.

The incidents are collected each day from public news sources.  There is no rumor or word-of-mouth involved.  Although every attempt is made to be accurate and consistent, we are not making the claim that this is a scientific product.

Unlike the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which publishes a tally of alleged "hate crimes" each year without supporting data, we do provide detail of each incident that we claim as a terror attack and make it available for verification.

The point of this list is not to convince anyone that they are in mortal danger or that Muslims are innately dangerous people (they are not, of course).  Rather it is to point out that Islam is different.  No other religion inspires the sort of terrorism that the "Religion of Peace" produces.  It should be acceptable to question and critique the teachings, particularly those that are supremacist in nature.

We also hope that this list offers moral perspective against so-called "Islamophobia" and other complaints from Muslim identity groups that are petty by comparison.  Who knows - perhaps one day these groups will decide to take the sort of action expected of those who truly believe that it is wrong to kill in the name of their religion.

Slow Culture: Handel är krig – hur det hela började

Söndag 23 Sep 2018

Med intresse – och kanske en smula förfäran – betraktar vi här i väst framväxten av Kina som en global ekonomisk och politisk maktfaktor. Det är inte bara genom sin oerhörda storlek som Mittens rike gör sitt inflytande påmint, det är också genom den mångfasetterade uppbyggnad av något som nästan skulle kunna liknas vid ett kolonialt imperium.

Det handlar dock inte här om den typ av kolonialism som dominerade vår värld från slutet av 1800-talet och fram till andra världskrigets slut, då ett antal europeiska stormakter utövade direkt territoriell kontroll över en stor del av planetens yta, utan om den typ av kolonialpolitik som europeiska makter utövade från och med 1400-talets upptäcktsresor och fram till en bit in på 1800-talet.
Där handlade det om säkrandet av handelsleder och omslagshamnar, förmånliga avtal med lokala potentater och möjligheter att skapa fördelaktiga handelsvillkor och monopolsituationer. Det handlar om att premiera de ekonomiska aspekterna vilket i förlängningen leder till politiskt inflytande. Den europeiska kolonialpolitiken efter 1870 stod jämförelsevis på huvudet – där premierades istället politik och territoriell kontroll, vilket inte på något sätt var ekonomiskt sunt. De europeiska kolonialimperierna var på det hela taget en ekonomisk förlustaffär för moderländernas skattebetalare från och med förra sekelskiftet, vilket var den främsta orsaken till att de kunde avvecklas så snabbt och (med ett par undantag) smärtfritt under 50- och 60-talen.
Dessa misstag vill Kina inte upprepa. Med sina storskaliga ambitioner att utveckla handelsleder, såsom ”Den nya sidenvägen” och ”Belt and Road Project”, liksom satsandet på hamnar och infrastruktur i tredje världen, där de lokala ledarna snart upptäcker att deras länder befinner sig i en mycket ogynnsam skuldsituation i förhållande till kineserna liknar dagens kinesiska politik mer den europeiska handels- och kolonialpolitiken under 15- och 1600-talen, än något annat. Det kan därför vara intressant att titta lite närmre på hur allting började.
Upptäcktsresor och internationell handel har givetvis alltid funnits; och strax innan den stora europeiska expansionen tar sin början hade såväl kineser som araber etablerat sig som viktiga aktörer på den globala arenan. Genom sitt finmaskiga handelsnät hade araberna under medeltiden kommit att dominera handeln på Europa med kryddor och andra eftertraktade varor från orienten. Det var den mäktiga handelsstaden Venedig som fungerade som arabernas partners i denna handel. Detta var ett stort problem för de nya europeiska nationalstater som börjar växa fram efter det fransk-engelska hundraårskriget, liksom efter Portugals och Spaniens återtagande av den Iberiska halvön i samband med Reconquistan, då de muslimska härskarna kastades ut. Det är också i dessa ”proto-nationalstater” där det blir lättast att omvandla handelsrelaterade och militära företag till systematiska operationer.
Det var länderna på den Iberiska halvön som var först ut ur startgroparna – och ett exempel på detta nya ”systematiska” synsätt är Henrik Sjöfararens (1394-1460) årliga expeditioner längs den afrikanska kusten. Här kunde portugiserna handla guld med karavanerna från det legendariska Timbuktu. För att ytterligare säkra guldhandeln anläggs en handelsstation i Guinea på 1480-talet – och inkomsterna från denna driver fram nya sjöföretag. 1487 rundar Bartolomeus Diaz Godahoppsudden, men drivs tillbaka av stormar. 1497-99 når Vasco da Gama till de arabiska handelsmännens förfäran fram till staden Calicut i södra Indien. Araberna inser direkt att deras lukrativa handelsmonopol är hotat.
...
Spanjorerna var lite långsammare när det gällde att utveckla ett interkontinentalt handelsväsende. Portugiserna hade stängt vägen till Indien runt Afrika, men eftersom jorden är rund kunde man ju alltid nå Österlandet genom att segla åt andra hållet. Detta var vad Columbus föreslog de spanska dubbelmonarkerna Ferdinand och Isabella på 1490-talet, vilket ledde till den europeiska upptäckten av Amerika, 1492. Efter att ha insett att det handlade om en helt ny kontinent, där befolkningen stod på en lägre kulturell nivå än i Asien, bestämde sig spanjorerna för att kolonisera landet, snarare än att upprätta handelsstationer. I förlängningen handlade detta om att på effektivast möjliga sätt kunna exploatera naturtillgångar, och främst då ädelmetaller – i Amerika fanns inte de kryddor som marknaden var intresserad av.
...
På 1600-talet trädde holländarna in på arenan och blev den dominerande handelsnationen såväl i Europa, som globalt. Det protestantiska Nederländerna på sin lilla landyta och med sin jämförelsevis ringa befolkningsmängd kunde föra upp de internationella handelsföretagen till en helt ny dimension genom att frigöra enorma mängder privatkapital – och detta skedde genom införandet av ett modernt bank-, kredit- och aktiebörsväsende. Även här kom kryddorna till en början att stå i centrum. 1602 grundades det nederländska Förenade ostindiska kompaniet (VOC), med målet att ta över orienthandeln från portugiser och spanjorer och garantera investerarna – entreprenörer och riskkapitalister – en vinst på 100 procent av insatt kapital. VOC undvek nogsamt de portugisiska omslagsplatserna (som Goa, Malacka och Macao), utan gick direkt på de ostindiska kryddöarna för att kontrollera produktionen vid källan. I allians med diverse indonesiska småfurstar kunde man driva bort portugiserna och sätta sig i besittning av Moluckerna (”där pepparn växer”) och ta över handeln.
Holländarna fick efter sitt gyllene 1600-tal bereda plats för britterna under 1700-talet. Britterna hade kunnat sitta bekvämt tillbakalutade och se vad som fungerade, respektive inte fungerade. Den statsunderstödda handelsföretag som bedrevs av Portugal och Spanien, eller den privatfinansierade holländska modellen, där navet utgjordes av det största privatkapitalistiska projekt som (i relativa termer) världen någonsin skådat i form av det mäktiga VOC. Man valde, helt förnuftigt, en kombination av det bästa med statlig intervention och det bästa av de privatfinansierade aspekterna – och där den yttersta garanten för kommersens och handelsvägarnas säkerhet utgjordes av den brittiska flottans oövervinnliga vapen.
Idag garanteras samma handelsvägar, sedan britterna dragit sig tillbaka väster om Suez efter andra världskriget, av den amerikanska flottan i förbund med sina allierade. Kina, som väl känner sin historia och väl vet vad oförmågan att konkurrera med västerlandet på handelspolitikens område ledde till för landets vidkommande, har nu börjat etablera sig som en global rival till västvärlden. Dock är det svårt för oss här i väst att betrakta Kina riktigt som en fara för den hegemoni som vi har vant oss vid sedan så många år. Vi har nämligen vant oss vid att betrakta imperier som välden som innehar väldiga landmassor och med trupper på plats i främmande territorier. Detta är ett 1800-talsmässigt sätt att betrakta sakernas tillstånd. Det kinesiska imperiebyggandet ser inte så ut. Kina bygger sin makt och sitt inflytande på samma sätt som vi själva gjorde på 1500-talet – och ju snabbare vi inser detta, desto bättre.

Report: White House Drafts Executive Order to Investigate Big Tech

Lucas Nolan, 22 Sep 2018

The White House has reportedly drafted an executive order that would open an antitrust investigation into the Silicon Valley Masters of the Universe.
According to a report from Bloomberg, the White House has drafted an executive order that would begin an antitrust investigation into the business practices of  Silicon Valley tech companies such as Google, Facebook, and Twitter. The executive order is reportedly just awaiting President Trump’s signature before the investigation can take place. The order is still only a draft and has yet to be reviewed by other government agencies according to White House officials.
Bloomberg obtained a copy of the draft, nothing that it instructs U.S. antitrust authorities to: “Thoroughly investigate whether any online platform has acted in violation of the antitrust laws.” The order asks other government agencies to suggest actions that could potentially “protect competition among online platforms and address online platform bias,” within the next month.
