Revoke their passports/citizenship or residency permits.

There is still much, much more to do, like stop importing these people in the first place thank you very much. Also, create a devils island along the French former model and let them live out their days there.

Centre supports criminalising foreign fighters

The Centre party would like to see people who travel abroad to fight for extremist groups face prosecution when they return. The party adopted a position paper on the matter at a meeting of the party board in Mikkeli on Sunday.

People who leave Finland to fight for ISIS or other extremist groups may face prosecution on their return, if a new proposal from the Centre party gains support. The party’s position on the recent attacks in Paris states that “leaving to fight abroad should be criminalized and recruitment to extremist groups should be stopped”.

The paper also expresses support for the victims of the Paris attacks and their relatives. The party board emphasised that refugees fleeing the Middle East are leaving to escape extremist violence, and that most of them have the best intentions in coming to Europe.

As a percentage of the Muslim population, more Finnish Muslims have left to fight in Syria than Muslims from 25 other countries—although the absolute numbers remain small. Some 70 Finns are believed to have left to fight with ISIS.

The Centre party’s board was gathered over the weekend in the eastern town of Mikkeli, with ministers grilled by party officials from across the country.

In his speech to the meeting on Saturday, Prime Minister and Centre leader Juha Sipilä defended his plan for reform of health and social care as a realisation of long-standing Centre party policy. The 18 regions he has proposed correspond to a 1962 proposal from the party, he told delegates.

The proposal has been criticised apparently for ignoring advice from ministerial advisers to limit the number of regions to 12 in pursuit of greater efficiency. The reform is expected to produce savings of around 3 billion euros from the social and health care budget.



A party in need of implosion.

Just as a party’s politics and policies require reformation, the party leadership should also be refreshed regularly,” Arhinmäki said in his speech. “For the Left Alliance’s development to continue we need new ideas and new faces. That is why I will not be available when the next chair is chosen, and next summer’s party meeting will choose a new chairperson.”

Here’s some advice, just disband and stop screwing with society, we’ve had enough of you regressive throwbacks. As well as those within the Greens Party and the SDP. The pseudo conservatives in the National Coalition (Kokoomus) and Center Party (Keskusta) should re-acquaint themselves with the Enlightenment philosophers and stop what they’re doing as well.

NOTE: Arhinmäki is another lefty anti-Israel puke

Arhinmäki drops out of Left Alliance leadership race

Vasemmistoliiton puheenjohtaja Paavo Arhinmäki.

Seven-year Left leader Paavo Arhinmäki announced on Saturday that he will not be applying for a continuation of his chair position in the Left Alliance next summer.

Left Alliance chair Paavo Arhinmäki will not be applying to continue as the party’s leader in next summer’s party meeting. Arhinmäki announced his dropout in the Left Alliance’s delegation meeting in Helsinki on Saturday.

Arhinmäki justified his decision by his seven-year run as party chair and his leadership of the Left Youth prior to his long chair stint.

He added that the party needs a change from being tied to a single figurehead.



Here’s the line Finns Party Timo Soini should have used in the asylum/refugee crisis (that’s still going on in spite of the media’s failure to report on it) debate:

Finnish Prime Minister Juha Sipilä is ready to collapse his own government if he does not get his way over proposed reforms to health and social care.

Pulling out of the government, even the veiled threat of it, would have rattled the political establishment and the Sipilä government, and rallied the people even more to the ranks of the Finns. It was a gross failure in both strategy and principle of Timo Soini and his top ranking party apparatchiks.

PM Sipilä: Gov’t “very likely” to fall

Prime Minister Juha Sipilä said on Thursday evening that his government is “very likely” to fall on Friday in a dispute over proposed reforms to health and social care. His centre party and the National Coalition party are at loggerheads over the number of regions in a proposed new health and social care system.

Finnish Prime Minister Juha Sipilä is ready to collapse his own government if he does not get his way over proposed reforms to health and social care. Sipilä’s Centre Party, which is strong in rural areas, wants 18 new regions to manage and commission services.

Alexander Stubb’s National Coalition, meanwhile, wants a maximum of 12 new authorities. At present these services are managed by more than 150 municipal-level organs, so the changes are expected to bring substantial savings to the public finances.

I have lost a chunk of my respect for the Finns Party.

That said, I have absolutely no respect for any of the other parties in Finland whatsoever.


A picture I took of Sebastian Tynkkynen in Helsinki a few days prior to his being ousted from the party for challenging the chairman, Timo Soini. I was seated a few seats from him at the Free Speech event arranged by YLE.

Tynkkynen was recently ejected from the party, following his efforts to get the party leadership to consider whether or not it should continue in government. At the time, Tynkkynen cited the party’s participation in government decisions that ran counter to its election platform.

Finns Party MP group takes back Facebook furore MP, rejects youth wing chair

The Finns Party parliamentary group has welcomed back MP Olli Immonen after a Facebook post widely condemned as racist. Last month Immonen requested reinstatement via message after his self-imposed time-out. The party was not as lenient in the case of re-elected youth wing chair and third vice president Sebastian Tynkkynen, who was banned from attending parliamentary group meetings.

Following a Facebook post in which he advocated a “fight to the death” against the “evil” that was multiculturalism, Finns Party MP Olli Immonen announced in August that he was voluntarily withdrawing from the party’s parliamentary group. Immonen’s comments were widely condemned, and he received a warning.

His comments sparked nationwide anti-racism demonstrations, with the largest in Helsinki attracting upwards of 15.000 participants. Later, in October, Tynkkynen appealed to be reinstated to the group via text message.

On Thursday Immonen appeared with Finns Party parliamentary group leader Sampo Terho, who announced that Immonen had been accepted back into the fold.

“After listening to MP Immonen and following lengthy discussions the Finns party parliamentary group has after due consideration decided to accept MP Immonen back into the parliamentary group, however giving him a warning over the previous incident that led to his voluntary suspension,” Terho said.

Terho said that Immonen’s Facebook comments had been “ambiguous” and that the fallout had been unfortunate.

“We have now issued a warning. This cannot happen again and in future MPs should be more mindful of their statements,” Terho added.

Immonen said that he was satisfied with the parliamentary group’s decision and was pleased to return to the group.

“My comment was open to interpretation. In future I will try to avoid this kind of ambiguity and express myself clearly and simply when I make my arguments” he remarked.

Upstart youth wing Tynkkynen not so lucky

Sebastian Tynkkynen poistumassa perussuomalaisten eduskuntaryhmän kokouksesta Helsingissä.

While Immonen is back in the party’s good graces, the party’s third vice chair and recently re-elected youth wing leader Sebastian Tynkkynen was not so fortunate.

Tynkkynen was recently ejected from the party, following his efforts to get the party leadership to consider whether or not it should continue in government. At the time, Tynkkynen cited the party’s participation in government decisions that ran counter to its election platform.

Parliamentary group chair Terho told journalists of the decision to exclude Tynkkynen from further participation in group meetings.

“The group had come to the unanimous decision that the right to participation will be revoked according to the group’s rules. The reason was what many MPs saw as a crisis of confidence, and which has led the party leadership expel Tynkkynen from the party.”

Tynkkynen acknowledged that “the parliamentary group has made its decision and they have the power to decide.”

“I still have to digest this. Everything happened so quickly,” he said.

Sampo Terho had previously said that in principle the party’s vice presidents had the right to join parliamentary group meetings, unless otherwise stated. Traditionally the Finns Party youth wing chair – in this case Tynkkynen – also had access to parliamentary group meetings in the past.


NOTE: The only reason why Immonen faced any kind of real “backlash”, was due to the weak-in-the-knees (tepid) response by the party leadership. It was a prime moment to educate the media on what multiculturalism is, what the party stands for, and why we need proper vetting of opinions and open debate of the issues. They blew it big time.


The idiocy of the statist.

Just what universe is the jerk living in? The overwhelming number of these muslim settler arriving to Finland, Iraqis, do not speak english, many are not even literate in their own language, very few have even gone to school save being knocked around while studying the koran in a madrassa, and average Finns are to embrace them and take them out for coffee?

What about the fact that most men couldn’t care less about hanging with these people, let alone being sponsors, so it’s going to be Finnish woman filling the gap, with the likelihood of getting raped being exponentially high due to the great divide in cultures. This has all the ingredients of a major disaster.

Interior Minister: Asylum seekers should get sponsors to help integration

Finland’s Minister of the Interior Petteri Orpo says he thinks every one of the asylum seekers in the country should receive their own sponsor, a person who would help them adjust to daily life here.

In an interview on the MTV3 news programme Uutisextra, the Minister of the Interior Petteri Orpo said he has requested his department to examine an initiative to give every asylum seeker a personal sponsor.

Orpo said that sponsors would assist asylum seekers with daily activities like going to the shop or for a cup of coffee at a café.

Another benefit to asylum seekers having a sponsor would be the opportunity to learn Finnish and to get familiar with the local culture and ways of life, Orpo said during the interview.

The most important thing is for asylum seekers to get into the workforce as quickly as possible, because integration occurs most easily through employment, he said.


NOTE: Most people realize that this guy is a total clown.


These people are insane.

Tens of thousands of unemployable illiterates from questionable backgrounds are to become part of the wonderful economic backbone of welfare state of the future. Yet the hundreds of billions in debt needed to supposedly train these people while they’re being housed, clothed and fed is just good money being thrown after bad.

NOTE: The unemployment numbers will prove to be far higher than what these numbskulls in the government are handing out and the fake media are parroting.

Ministry forecast: Unemployment to worsen in Finland

The unemployment rate in Finland could rise to 9.5 percent this year. According to a fresh forecast by the Ministry of Employment and the Economy, growing numbers of out of work people are falling into the category of the long term unemployed.

The Ministry’s forecast sees joblessness in Finland worsening during the remainder of this year and into 2016.

According to the advisory issued Monday, employment in even the service sector has slowed and the number of unemployed jobseekers is approaching a record high since the year 2000. This year they will number 355,000 on average and will climb to 370,000 next year.

In its last publication of labour market data, Statistics Finland put the number of jobless people looking for work at the September at 225,000, compared to the Ministry’s 337,000 for the same period.

Data from both bodies differ because the Ministry pulls its figures from actual jobseekers registered with local employment offices, while Statistics Finland bases its findings on statistical samples.

More jobseekers becoming long term unemployed

The Ministry said that the growth of employment figures this year would be negative or close to zero in all job sectors. The labour market forecast further predicted that unemployment this year would rise to 9.5 percent.

The Ministry’s review indicated that the unemployment rate would continue to rise this year and that the trend would continue into next year. Senior civil servant Johanna Alatalo also noted that economic growth would not be robust enough to promote employment next year either.

According to the outlook, growing numbers of jobseekers can be classified as the long term unemployed. This year some 110,000 people were considered to be among the long term unemployment, while the number is forecast to grow to 130,000 next year. The Ministry pointed out that nowadays this group no longer includes only the elderly and the poorly educated.



imbecillis maximus

How about importing people who are already a benefit to society than illiterate leaches who can only exist on the public dole?

The use of temporary (only) welfare has long bean a means to motivate people into finding work. The cutting back on the myriad of regulations stifling the business sector (needed to boost productivity) as well as the little by little curtailing, and eventually ending, of the welfare state itself is also a necessary step, as are others just mentioned.

Economist: Immigrant unemployment down with German combo model

Research director Antti Kauhanen from the Research Institute of the Finnish Economy says that combining social security and wage work would help solve the problem of immigrants having trouble finding employment. Two Somali women echo some of Kauhanen’s sentiments.

Antti Kauhanen

Antti Kauhanen, research chief at the Research Institute of the Finnish Economy (Etla) says that reforming Finland’s social security and the job market are key in minimising immigrant unemployment.

“This is a problem we can fix,” he says. “By changing social security and collective bargaining we can create demand for low-wage jobs and thus increase the number of employed immigrants.”

Kauhanen says that the Finnish social security system should be reformed to make combining paid work and social benefits easier.

“We have held to the idea that wages from working jobs should be enough to live on, but this is not the case for certain demographics whose productivity is lower due to issues such as poor language skills,” he says, and adds that language training is another measure that needs to be better implemented.

More here.

NOTE: Creating a demand for low wage jobs by opening the floodgates of difficult to employ migrants, is going to further dress those wages (do to abundance of workers) as well as not creating the needed wealth to grow the economy. Here’s a shocker for the economist, the whole idea of growing an economy is to create wealth, not to shift dirt from one hole into another.


Both have nothing against taking on more public debt and ramrodding more statism down the people’s throats.

These people are so out of touch with reality that it’s surreal to watch from the sidelines as both side races with each other to play the part of the fool.

The laws of economics stops for no one, whether you’re a classical liberal/libertarian conservative, a neo-statist or even a full throated one. Today’s politics are centered around dividing an economic pie into even more thin slices while they insist on bloating the public debt (in the vain hope of stimulating the economy).

The Center party (and National Coalition) insists on making cuts to the state bureaucracy while insisting on taking on yet more debt to pay for mass immigration of mostly unemployable men from Iraq, who are supposedly to be “the ones” to help maintain the socialist welfare state. The fact that we have a terribly stubborn (systemic) high unemployment rate of +230 000 people seems to be of no significance to these (impenetrable by fact) leaders.

NOTE: The rest of the political field want to keep things as they are and add more debt. It will all collapse in on itself as it must, because as I said earlier, the laws of economics stops for no one, especially for fools.

Greens chair: Finland sliding towards “children’s class society”

Greens Party chair Ville Niinistö spoke out against the government for its heavily right-wing politics on Saturday. The Greens presented their shadow budget on Friday and say they would be prepared to take on 200 million euros more debt than PM Juha Sipilä’s government is planning.

Ville Niinistö

Greens Party chair Ville Niinistö went on TV1’s morning politics show on Saturday to criticise the government’s politics. He also lays bare his party’s own more moderate line.

“It is a fact of political economy that hard cuts weaken economic growth. Many experts have warned that Sipilä’s government is making rash decisions without accounting for their consequences. Sipilä is taking a risk by going fully right-wing instead of implementing reforms that would boost employment,” Niinistö said.

Niinistö said that the Greens would seek public sector stability over two full parliamentary terms instead of the government’s 4-6-year plan.

“When we leave off cutting wealth from low earners and education the welfare state will bounce back from the recession stronger and we wouldn’t need to take on more debt.”

For how long, until you (feckless politicians) or the crony business community say so?

This is what happens when politicians reject human experience as a guide for future decision making. For the statist and neo-statist (latter being pseudo conservatives) history and experience begin with each new day, no need to look back, just use “reason” alone to determine what is and isn’t prudent.

“Experience must be our only guide. Reason may mislead us.”John Dickinson at the Philadelphia Convention. “Experience was “the best oracle of wisdom” and “the least fallible guide of human opinions,” wrote Alexander Hamilton in The Federalist.[2] James Madison, his collaborator, concurred. Experience was “the oracle of truth” and “the guide that ought always to be followed whenever it can be found,” wrote Madison.[3] Experience would help prevent reason from leading them astray. Sean Busick

NOTE: Sweden is boiling over, and chuckleheads like Sipilä and Niinistö and the rest of the horse and pony show want us to believe that they’ve got it all covered, just trust them, while they pursue illogical choices and knee-jerk policies. He’s businessman, he knows that these Iraqis will be great for the economy and for the civil society just because he’s such a genius.

PM Sipilä: Finland at asylum-seeker capacity

Juha Sipilä spoke on Prime Minister’s question hour saying that the number of asylum-seekers entering Finland is untenable, and that 10,000 would be a sustainable number of yearly arrivals.

Prime Minister Juha Sipilä says that Finland is fast approaching its maximum sustainable capacity for asylum-seekers.

“We are right on the upper limit,” he said on radio’s Prime Minister’s question hour. He says that all sectors of Finland’s response system – including reception centres, housing and police work – are stretched thin.

The Minister of the Interior updated its estimate of the number of asylum-seekers arriving in Finland this year, revising the figure from 50,000 to 30,000-35,000.

“Those thirty-odd thousand migrants will be a challenge. It is ten times are many asylum-seekers as last year,” Sipilä said.

He estimates that a sustainable yearly number of asylum-seekers entering the country would be around 10,000.


Just under 80 people arrived in Tornio to claim asylum on Saturday, a huge reduction on the busiest days at the town’s newly-established registration facility. Finland is expecting a total of some 30,000 to 35,000 asylum seekers to arrive this year, with 20,000 registered so far.

NOTE: I seriously doubt the low number of just 80 coming into the country at Tornio, they have been proven to be misleading time and again.


The Finnish state conducts infowars against Israel.

There is no doubt in my mind whatsoever about Putin’s Russia disseminating propaganda and false info (infowars) throughout the West. One of the persons named in the article is an arch-stooge for Russian propaganda in Finland, Johan Bäckman. That said, Finnish researcher, Saara Jantunen, would be well advised research the publically funded propaganda emanating from the various branches of both the EU and Finnish governments.

The disinformation and slight of hand strategies of both entities has been constant and intense for decades. The EU, with its pantheon of statist and neo-statist demagogues are shown to be the saviours of Europe all the while they are the ones creating the chaos. Using each crisis created, the EU strips more sovereignty from its member states, thereby removing the people from the decision making process with no oversight and no accountability.

Then there is the ongoing propaganda war against the Jewish state of Israel, with many EU member governments funding NGO’s for anti-Israel purposes but under the thinly veiled guise of ”human rights”. If Jantunen wants to find troublesome propaganda/infowars, she could also find it at home as well.

Finnish researcher: Russia ramping up its information war

Russia has intensified its ongoing information war against the West since the onset of the Ukraine crisis in 2014. Finnish author Saara Jantunen says the campaign cannot be reduced to a few crazies blowing off steam, because at its worst the goal is to encourage public mayhem via false information. She also claims people in Finland who call attention to the looming threat are being silenced.

Saara Jantunen.
Image: Matti Hämäläinen / Yle

Doctor of Military Science and infowar expert Saara Jantunen has released a new book in Finnish on the Russian misinformation campaign. Named ‘Infosota’, the book explores the ruthless front lines of the concentrated Russian infowar effort, including its troll houses – where hundreds of Russian bloggers are paid to flood forums and social networks at home and abroad with anti-western and pro-Kremlin comments.

For nearly a decade now, the Kremlin has been busily waging an information war mainly through its international broadcaster RT (formerly known as Russia Today). In 2015, Russia increased its spending on RT by more than 50 percent to over 260 million euros.


Jantunen isn’t the only researcher in Finland who is concerned about the growing influence of the Russia information war. Director of government communications and Finnish Safety Committee expert member Markku Mantila and University of Helsinki researcher Hanna Smith have both warned against the dangers of mixing lies and reality.

“I am deeply concerned about the levels of discussion in the Finnish political arena if people aren’t allowed to speak,” says Jantunen.

She says it is high time Finnish politicians put the country’s former presidents and Eastern neighbour appeasers Paasikivi and Kekkonen to rest.

“Nostalgia for the days of Finlandisation and the re-interpreted retro importance of the Paasikivi-Kekkonen policy line are just props that are used to avoid real decision-making and true intellectual independence.”


NOTE: This explains how easy it has been for the Finnish government to parrot EU rhetoric against those who champion individualism, freedom of thought and conscious. Being against Islamization will bring out the worst sort of propaganda from Finnish authorities, smeared, tarred and feathered and brought before the court, with the outcome known in advance.


Severe conflict of interest I would think.

I reported on this earlier (here as well), Luona Oy (Ltd) is a company which is greatly involved in the “refugee” business and who has a sitting MP on its board. Yle is just now reporting on the story.

Evening paper Ilta-Sanomat printed a story on Monday about controversy surrounding National Coalition Party MP Sanna Lauslahti’s membership on the board of a company called Luona Oy, which sells its services to reception centres.

After the news of Lauslahti’s involvement in the company was revealed Friday, Finns Party member and European MP Jussi Hall-aho voiced his objection to the situation.

While he didn’t name Lauslahti specifically, Halla-aho said that politicians should not be making money from asylum seekers, the paper wrote.

In an interview with the paper, Lauslahti defended herself saying that her political job does not involve decisions about migration at all and that she will focus on education and cultural issues, the paper wrote.

Law professor at University of Helsinki Olli Mäenpää said that the issue is an ethical and moral one, and said that legal barriers are in place if an MP would attempt voting on measures that would create a conflict of interest.

Luona was founded this year and provides services to a total of seven reception centres in Finland.

The company is a subsidiary of the private employment agency Barona Group, which has staff of around 2,700 people and provides services in the social, health, IT and other sectors in Finland, Russia, Estonia and Sweden.



The problem is, when you talk like a marxist and promote marxist principles, you have little leverage against someone who calls you out on not being marxist enough.


Timo Soini is not a conservative, not even close, so it’s a matter nuance when you compare him with his political competition. Antti Rinne is an old time marxist, and has no problem using classic marxist class struggle rhetoric in trying to chip votes away from his chief rival of (now) The Finns party.

Not holding conservative values, Soini has a problem (as do the pseudo conservatives National Coalition) in fighting his rhetoric. It’s kind of like the GOP (U.S.) making Mitt Romney their nominee for president to run against Obama who instituted a highly unfavorable healthcare program (Obamacare), that was modeled on Romney’s own healthcare plan in Massachusetts.

Rinne slams Soini’s claim to be “party of the workers”

A boost in the polls this week for the SDP is a sign that people are waking up to the reality of the Finns Party, claims opposition leader.

Antti Rinne

The leader of the Social Democrats, Antti Rinne, has slammed a claim by Timo Soini that the Finns Party is the country’s true labour party.

Speaking on Yle’s Ykkösaamu politics programme on Saturday, Soini repeated his assertion that his party is the one which represents Finland’s working men and women.

Speaking in Rovaniemi, where he is launching the party’s campaigns for forthcoming local government elections in Lapland, SDP leader Antti Rinne said he is very happy with the results of the latest Yle-commissioned poll, which saw the Finns Party fall into fourth place in terms of support, while the SDP appeared to rise 3.9 percentage points into second place.

More here.


They’ve lost Finns Party supporters over their refusal to do the right thing and leave the current government, or at least threaten to leave it.

And no YLE (state propaganda wing), they didn’t lose support because of the rebellion within the party, they lost support because their feckless policies led to the rebellion itself. You can’t position yourself as a party of small, balanced, managed immigration/migration and then sit on your thumbs during the greatest breach of Finnish border sovereignty (an elusive term in an era of EU hegemony) in its history as a nation.

NOTE: This is similar to the outrage by republican voters and fiscal conservative democrats (Reagan conservatives) to Bush Jr.’s bailout of Wall Street which led to the rise of the Tea Party. I doubt anything similar happens here though, just voter dissatisfaction leading to The Finns Party’s demise.

Yle poll shows steep drop in Finns Party support

A new poll carried out for Yle shows a huge drop in support for the Finns Party. The 4.3 percentage point fall in just one month is exceptional in Finnish polling history, and hits the populist party after a rebellion within the party over immigration policy.

Party Support Graphics.
Image: Yle

The Finns Party has been hit by a big drop in reported support levels in the latest monthly poll carried out for Yle by Taloustutkimus. The party’s support dropped 4.3 percentage points to 10.7 percentage points. That’s a fall of 7 percentage points compared to their performance in April’s election.

The Social Democrats, by contrast, saw their support leap by 3.9 percentage points to 18.3 percent. The Centre Party is in first place with 21.7 percent, although that has dropped by 1.7 percent since last month. The National Coalition is in third place on 18 percent, down 0.9 percent since last month.

The poll comes as Finns Party leader and Foreign Minister Timo Soini has to deal with an insurgency in his party against the government’s immigration policy. The party’s third vice-chair Sebastian Tynkkynen on Monday published an appeal for a special meeting of the party’s organs to vote on continued participation in the government after what Tynkkynen claims is a departure from the government programme on the issue of immigration.

Finland is set to welcome some 50,000 asylum seekers this year, an unprecedented figure with some 20,000 already having made claims since January. The influx has been particularly difficult for the Finns Party’s anti-immigration wing to stomach, with a number of demonstrations held in recent weeks demanding that Finland close its borders.


NOTE II: In order for The Finns to regain their public trust, Soini should step down as party leader, with the new leader insisting that the party leave government. Or just stay a rump party ankle biting its way on the sidelines.


He’s also advising the current Finnish Prime Minister.

This is the bureaucratic hack who’s working against pro-Israel voices in the (state) Lutheran Church, and now we find out that he’s acceptable to the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation to head one of their funded agencies under the auspices of the UN.

NOTE: He’s anti-Israel, so he must be already sharia compliant enough (read = dhimmi stooge) for the OIC to select him to the post. And as the headline shows, he sticks to failed memes like a fly to wet paint.

The Prime Minister’s special representative: “Isis is recruiting loners, asylum seekers need to get to work at once”

Antti Pentikainen met with representatives of the Government of the Government Palace in Helsinki. He, the EU should make already more than mere declarations on the Mediterranean crisis.
Antti Pentikainen met with representatives of the Government at the Government Palace in Helsinki. According to him, the EU should already be making more than mere declarations on the Mediterranean crisis.

Pentikainen has had an action packed week in the Prime Ministers entourage. He was involved, among other things, in the EU’s Prime Ministers’ meeting in Brussels and at the end of the week, he traveled back to New York, where he lives with his family.

Pentikainen is on leave from his position of Executive Director of Finn Church Aid. He started in the spring, in New York, as director of a three-year job as the leader of a religious and traditional community leaders network.

The network set up by UN and the OIC, Organization of Islamic Cooperation, supports peace work, inter alia, Yemen, Iraq, Syria and Libya.

“Recently, it has been noted that there is no conflict that is able to be solved at the national level. What’s more effective is their settlement at the grassroots level, in religious and tribal communities.”



So they’ll add on to the national debt in pursuit of the statist nirvana that will never come.

Professor: Finland being branded “Finno-Ugric hickville”

A professor of world politics at the University of Helsinki has levelled criticism at recent events contributing to what he sees as Finland’s tarnished reputation. He says that both domestic and foreign policy choices have recently upset many and compromised the country’s credibility.

Helsingin yliopiston maailmapolitiikan professori Teivo Teivainen.

Helsinki University world politics professor Teivo Teivainen says that Finland’s decision to cut contributions to the United Nations environmental UNEP programme by six million euros and to halve funding to other UN organisations has smeared Finland’s reputation.

The loss of credibility is also directly related to Finland’s attitude towards immigrants, he says.

“We are slipping away from being perceived as a tolerant, affluent Nordic family due to these recent incidents,” Teivainen said on Yle’s morning TV programme on Monday.

“It seems like we’re branding Finland as some kind of Finno-Ugric hick town.”

Further dents in the country’s image include its scratch vote on the European Commisison’s plan to relocate asylum-seekers across the EU and recent racist protests against refugees.

“We are fast approaching the same black hole with our attitude towards immigrants as Hungary,” says Teivainen. “Finland’s combined domestic and foreign policy is not looking good. Finland’s reputation has been destroyed quite effectively.”

The label of backwardness is more than a cosmetic flaw, he says, adding that how a country reacts to others in crisis is reflected in the support it will later receive if faced with a crisis of its own.

“When we ourselves face distress – whether financial, military or from a natural disaster – then we’ll the consequences of our actions,” Teivainen warned.



This guy is the worst of the worst.

How Finns got saddled with this POS, repeatedly, I will never know. Soini finally speaks his mind about Sweden’s continual muslim settler dump into Finland, and this letch of a traitor cries foul.

Ex-foreign minister concerned about Soini’s “foolish statements”

The former Finnish foreign minister Erkki Tuomioja has said he is very concerned about the current Minister of Foreign Affairs Timo Soini’s behaviour.

Foreign Minister Timo Soini’s controversial comments lambasting Swedish policy towards asylum seekers have prompted condemnation from his predecessor in the post.

“I’m ashamed that Finland now shows itself as such a hostile country that it is turning against our neighbour Sweden without any reason at all,” SDP MP and ex-Foreign Minister Erkki Tuomioja said.

On Tuesday, Soini told the newspaper Ilta-Sanomat that the current refugee crisis could damage relations between Sweden and Finland.

Swedish tabloid newspapers Aftonbladet and Expressen both described Soini’s comments as an ‘attack’ on Sweden, and both Swedish and Finnish Interior Ministers commented on the matter after a meeting in Brussels.

NOTE: Here’s a clue for the bat-sh*t crazy Finnish ex-FM and radical 60’s marxist, we are all ashamed of, as well as disgusted, by you.


Multiculturalism is a regressive, post-nation state (return to) tribalism.

Immonen is 100% correct.

He went on to state that he opposes multiculturalism and believes a uniform culture is better. He claimed that in many countries immigration brings ghettos, alienation, crime and radicalization — “I oppose all those things” — and insisted that Finland has succeeded because people of the same background have pulled together.

Anti-multiculturalism MP temporarily steps down from parliamentary group

More than a month after calling on Facebook for a fight against “the nightmare called multiculturalism”, Finns Party MP Olli Immonen finally faced the media, and accused them of sensationalist reporting. Immonen’s remarks in July spurred politicians to speak out against racism and sparked tens of thousands of people to attend pro-diversity demonstrations around the country.

In a press conference held on Wednesday morning, MP Olli Immonen was flanked by his party superiors (but with Finns Party leader Timo Soini visibly absent) when he announced that he’s applied for and been granted a 2-month leave from his parliamentary duties. He said that as Finland is in a difficult situation economically, and employment- and immigration-wise, his party needs to address these issues and not deal with the fallout from his controversial text.

The move will see Immonen remain a member of the party and remain in parliament, though by being outside the parliamentary group he will no longer be subject to party directives.

Immonen admitted the measure will not affect his work in parliament, and he said he will continue to serve on committees.

Immonen accused the media of twisting his words for what he described as “sensational headlines”, and criticised them for reprinting Facebook photos he had recently posted of himself posing with members of a neo-Nazi group at the grave of nationalist Eugen Schauman.  “I don’t have any ties to extremist groups on the Far Right or the Far Left,” he said, adding that when the photo was taken he was not aware that the group he posed represented the Finnish National Resistance Movement.

“Many media outlets claim that my Facebook post was published on the anniversary of Utøya, but that’s not the case,” he said. The Utøya massacre took place on July 22, 2011 when mass murderer Anders Breivik took the lives of 69 people on the Norwegian island. Immonen’s post appeared two days after the anniversary of the massacre.



I’ve been saying the exact same thing for years.

It is a regressive ideology, a throwback to tribalism, and can only exist within a society given over to statism, the pushes identity driven politics and group rights.

Excellent speech BTW, also, The Finns party has completely weathered the storm created by the faux media, opposition parties and the hard Left, over the Immonen Affair, in which a lone Finns MP criticized destructive multiculturalism and was branded a ”racist” for his efforts.

Halla-aho: Democracy without options is not democracy (video)


Halla-aho said that The Finns party has been in recent times in a large whirlwind. Especially one member of the party has been much criticized, he said, referring to Olli Immonen. Halla-aho said that there are two kinds of people: democratic and undemocratic. The Finns party is a Democratic Party and subject to the same outcry as Immonen, who as a parliamentarian, was undertaking the promotion of the party’s affairs.

– The non-democratic forces represented in the demonstrations were men swinging knives and anti-fascist stone throwers.

Time-limits on opinion is not democratic

He also raised, for example, the editorial journalists and columnists who try to tell MPs what opinions they can have.

– We are a democratic party – we don’t tell the Greens, what opinions they ought to have, Halla-aho got rumbles of loud applause.

The Party remains an option

He pointed out that The Finns have their voice because they are an option. And they have a voice as long as you have an option.

– Political pressure towards countries like Finland is hard, but it is precisely difficult times that require leadership and political will. It is what our constituents require. We received votes, because we have an option. We were voted for only as long as we have an option.
