Since I have weighed in on US politics on this site more than once, I believe I owe my readership an explanation of my political views.


This site was started over 10 yrs. ago, first and foremost, as a pro-Israel website. Focusing on published outrageous statements, comments and articles that first appeared in Finnish, I translated and broke them to the English speaking world. The Tundra Tabloids has broken a lot of stories, some of them reached to national importance here. One of them (back in 2008) to the national forefront in US presidential politics, featured on the Drudge Report.

I believe that this blog has served a unique purpose, for up until that time, hardly anyone within the English speaking blogosphere was aware of the anti-Israel / Jew hating views being disseminated in Finnish. This blog’s purpose was to expose that.

My interest in the Islamic phenomenon vis-a-vis the West extends from my pro-Israel work and views, it’s where I came to realize that Islam is a key component to the Arabs’ war against the Jewish state of Israel. It still is. With the backdrop of 9/11, the hegemonic impulse of Islam within our Western states, and the ease by which Muslims have infiltrated our systems, infrastructures and subverted our societies, naturally led me to the Counter-Jihad movement (defenders of classical liberalism), and I’m still here.

My political views have always been conservative in nature, a Reaganite, a defender of classical liberalism based upon the Enlightenment, free market capitalism, small government, in short…..liberty. My views haven’t changed, for my philosophy is based upon reason, logic and human experience. This brings me to the topic at hand which I addressed in the TT’s comments this morning.

A commenter was upset that I defended someone who I felt was wrongly besmirched in a headline at Breitbart News, and who took offence that I opposed the recent expression of Breitbart news during the advent of the Trump phenomenon. I believe that I relay my sentiments enough in the below response that I needn’t repeat them here.

That said, all my views politically and otherwise are filtered through my conservatism. I respect my readership, you’ll know my views and why I post this or that, irrespective if some or many may disagree with my thoughts. I do not promote any view that’s not in sync with my guiding philosophy, I owe my readers that integrity. If at times it means loosing a reader(s) so be it, I have to remain true to myself, while it’s nice to have high number of readers, that is not my prime objective, but in relaying the facts as I see them.


First, commenter Straightshooter:

Are you serious? Kristol is an idiot who is trying to destroy America’s and the Western World’s best shot at stopping this insanity from the Left and Islamists and you think that he should be protected? Really? You do know that the author of this article is David Horowitz, a preeminent JEWISH commentator? Please! Re-evaluate your position. It is not Breitbart that is wrong, it is YOU.

One more thing. Up until today I have been an irregular viewer of your site, after this absolutely baseless comment I think I will give you a few days more, if you continue on this path the you will be gone for me.

Sad really, for up until this you have made sense to me and I have used your site to view the Scandinavian perspective. Unfortunately you seem to have lost all perspective.

What’s going on here? Is Kristol a relative or something? What he is trying to do is nuts.

Hi Straightshooter, first of all, i’m not a Kristol supporter, i’m a constitutional conservative, that puts BK automatically outside my philosophical views. That said, I’m zeroing in on DH’s stupid headline, which will only serve every neo-nazi Jew hating website. Breitbart, while in the past having done excellent work, has now become a ”pom pom” cheer leading site for their candidate. Fine, any news generating org can do that, but the editorial staff (like Matt Drudge)has refused early on to honestly relay their clear preference for Trump. It’s highly dishonest.

It matters little if a person is Jewish or not, stupid is stupid, and Horowitz committed a highly stupid act, and Breitbart compounded it by publishing the title as is. Calling a person out for his/her views is entirely legit, singling the person out for his ethnicity… not. I stand by that.

Andrew Breitbart, a person whom I greatly admired, would be appalled by the direction taken by his namesake news org., he knew Trump was never a conservative, and even if he was, would never condone his site being used as an uncritical superpac for any given candidate (like Fox and Drudge has done), that is my approach to all of this, it’s done with that view in mind.

I’m a principled conservative, and call shots as I see them. I appreciate your visiting my site, but do not expect me to hang my principles at the door and throw myself for this or that candidate just because he mouths this, that and the other, especially when he falls on all sides of any given issue, even on the same day depending what audience he’s addressing.


I was discussing with a few pals online about US election, politics, candidates and geopolitics concerning Syria, Putin etc..

I think it’s high time we abandon the Wilsonian lunacy of “the democracy project”, I believe Cruz understands that. I get nauseous listening to Rubio talk in the same vein as MCain and Graham, I wish he’d stop that. Also, his tactics against Cruz is amazingly old-style GOP, hatchet-like, half truths and outright lying, I don’t like that in any candidate, run on your record, and for some reason if you can’t, don’t run at all. I used to buy into Nathan Sharansky’s “The Case for Democracy”, but no longer, and apparently Bushites still do, (I include Rubio as one of them).

I hate to sound like a broken record, but I cannot get excited about any candidate that’s beholden to the GOP establishment, Rubio is. I also cannot get excited about any candidate that doesn’t truly understand the need to exact US power (you can wipe your rear with the paper inscribed with International law, it doesn’t exist without a healthy US presence). Rand Paul I believe is at the opposite extreme of Rubio, Ted Cruz safely moves within their parameters, (US interests first).

I second (redacted) take on Marco’s ruminations on Syrian ”freedom fighters”, that there aren’t any should give us all pause for concern, as did the French Revolution for Edmund Burke, we should back away from supporting any side, let Putin do whatever until a Republican is in office then realign the chess board to reduce his gains. Putin is doing whatever he can from a Russian perspective (that’s fine, all nations do), but it’s not our perspective or best interests, and he’ll only reduce the shared enemy to a point that it’s not a threat to Russian interests, not the West’s, he needs them to keep us off balance.

to ‘Ashley converted Muslim’ who ‘studie Quran’ first “study” not “studie”, maybe you should go back to school and study primer/abc-book instead of quran

you see I read it and all this book calls to jihad, and jihad is political war with infidels in 97% ( ) statistically (doubt you know what that means)

And you talk how “good” “religion” is islam. It simply means you are dualist ( and use taqiyya ( to lie to us, foolish, nice europeans.

congratulations, you are a winner.

Ashley the convert to islam replies in a way that’s highly characteristic of muslims, irate babble:

thats cool i do know what jihad means but im not hear to argue islam is the fastest growing religion in the worls 2.5 billion muslims all the middle east half of the phillapines, 17% of europe 10% of the USA, all of western china most of mongolia even though there shias…lol 5% of canada and 3% of south america and many more countries so who cares what you think i hate racest pieses of shit like you. may allah forgive me i live in bisbee, Az. i doubt you would express your veaws in front of a real muslim inshallah if you feel the need try…lol your fucking ignorent you and your american red neck punks.



The whole bunch of them were settlers, not asylum seekers.

One of their Arabic translators admitted to the fact that fake passports were being used!


As I walked up to the main doors, many were outside busy talking on their cell phones (most likely trying to get elsewhere). I was greeted at the door by one who used his iPhone as a translator machine, he got upset when I asked him why he didn’t stay to fight the jihadis.

I reminded him (and the operator of the asylum freak show) that Finnish men of all ages stayed to fight the Soviets during WWII, and didn’t run away. The group listening to the exchange (translated by one of their group) were basically, speechless, having nothing to offer other than that “they want to be in Finland”, “What a great country”.

Here is Äänekosken first reception center

Äänekoski’s first “reception center”


One of the Finnish Red Cross managers of the farce (all of them from Helsinki) was extremely upset by my questioning, and refused to engage in any conversation whatsoever.

One point worth noting, none of the so called asylum seekers wanted to remain in the small town, unlike some of the Bosnian refugees Finland received some 20 years ago (1992-1995), who were actually thankful to find refuge in whatever place they were directed to stay, and remained in these same small towns, with their families, until things calmed down in their home country.

While they say that they “love Finland”, these Iraqis are not thankful for squat, and are nothing more than opportunists looking for the good life (Muslim settlers), or, Islamic State operatives (jihadis) waiting for the right time to get active.


Tundra Mail

The other day Eric Allen Bell responded to a comment by Larry Estavan at the Tundra Tabloids that inadvertently got through, and it shouldn’t have been. Every once in awhile something like this happens, all I can say in my defense is that it’s just part of being blogger, it’s bound to happen.

Thankfully Eric took the time to debunk this guy, and after a couple exchanges with Eric, we decided to leave the comments up, and now I’m making this a front page item, no one can use my site to promote half cocked, and outright loony claims of someone, especially if that someone is an active member of a movement dedicated in countering dangerous islam 101’ers.

Here is the exchanges in full at the TT’s post of Bell in a video talking about the info age being the death of islam, including our discussion.

  1. Six Signs Eric Allen Bell is not part of the Counter Jihad Movement

    1. Wants to remove Christians from the movement
    2. Believes Jews control America
    3. Thinks Pamela Geller “hurts” the movement
    4. Thinks Spencer, and Geller are tools of the Religious Right
    5. Lies to, and manipulates the CJM
    6. Is pretending to run a business, has a money tree, and is politically active

    These are warning signs of someone who is here to cause trouble.

  2. I wish to respond to the allegations about me, made in the comment above:

    1 – I do NOT wish to expel Christians from the Counter Jihad Movement. This statement is 100 percent untrue.

    2 – I do NOT believe Jews control America. This statement is 100 percent untrue.

    3 – I have the utmost respect and admiration for Pamela Geller, her leadership, her courage and the very important work she is doing to expose Islam.

    4 – I am no fan of the Religious Right. However, if they want to help us fight Islamic tyranny, I will fight with them, shoulder to shoulder.

    5 – Point number 5 above does not require a response. My actions speak for themselves.

    6 – My business is my business. I do not accept donations for my work in Counter Jihad. I am self supporting. That said, I have no issue with those who do solicit donations so that they may continue with the fight. In fact, I do from time to time donate to many of those people and entities.

    • Eric, I thought that i had already deleted that comment, my bad. Since you already responded to it, thereby bringing it to my attention once again, I’ll leave it up as proof of your beliefs against this kind of smear bullcrap (that shouldn’t have been up in the first place, I must have had it on hold to respond to or to deal with, and it inadvertently was posted. Once again, my bad.

SIDE NOTE: FM: Eric Bell: Thanks for that. I prefer to keep my response up, if that’s okay. At first I was not responding to what he was saying, but to my surprise a lot of people were believing him. So, I decided it was best to occasionally respond to Mr. Larry Estavan. This guy has been posting this stuff regularly for 3 years now.


 Child sexual abuse ring in Halifax: 25 men charged – police reaction

Twenty five men have been charged with child sex offences against two girls in Calderdale following a major police operation.

In what police say is the largest child sexual exploitation (CSE) investigation in the country – bigger than high profile cases in Rochdale and Rotherham – the men face a combined total of 59 charges, including rape, sexual activity with a child under 16 and trafficking for the purposes of sexual exploitation.

‘Basement imams’ spreading radical Islamism, Muslim prison chaplain warns

In the wake of last month’s Charlie Hebdo attacks, the French government is trying to tackle Islamist radicalisation in prisons. More than half of France’s 70,000 prisoners are Muslim, served by 182 chaplains, leading to a promise to recruit 60 more. But one chaplain, Mohammed Boina M’Koubou, is not sure that will be enough.

Iraq to launch major ground offensive against IS group

A top US official announced Sunday that Iraqi troops will launch a ground offensive within weeks to take back swathes of the country seized by Islamic State group, while a suicide attack killed at least 12 in Baghdad on Monday.

Immigration in Denmark at an all-time high

2014 was a record year for immigration in Denmark thanks in large part to Syrians and a rapidly-growing number of Western immigrants.

New figures from Statistics Denmark show that nearly 65,000 foreigners moved to Denmark in 2014, an all-time record for the highest number of immigrants in a single year. The 64,874 foreign nationals who came to Denmark last year represented a 15 percent increase over 2013, which held the previous record. More here.

The team changed their strip last season to include the rainbow flag, to fight against homophobia in the sporting world, in what they call ” the most laddish sport in the most laddish city in Sweden”. They also won the “Keep up the good work” award. More here.



Boko Haram and the Kidnapped Schoolgirls

The Nigerian terror group reflects the general Islamist hatred of women’s rights. When will the West wake up?

Since the kidnapping of 276 schoolgirls in Nigeria last month, the meaning of Boko Haram—the name used by the terrorist group that seized the girls—has become more widely known. The translation from the Hausa language is usually given in English-language media as “Western Education Is Forbidden,” though “Non-Muslim Teaching Is Forbidden” might be more accurate.

But little attention has been paid to the group’s formal Arabic name: Jam’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-da’wa wal-Jihad. That roughly translates as “The Fellowship of the People of the Tradition for Preaching and Holy War.” That’s a lot less catchy than Boko Haram but significantly more revealing about the group and its mission. Far from being an aberration among Islamist terror groups, as some observers suggest, Boko Haram in its goals and methods is in fact all too representative.

A writer for the Huffington Post has admitted vandalising a UKIP poster in Birmingham. In an article published today, Bill Drummond, who describes himself as an artist, proudly posted photos of himself defacing the poster and justified his actions by comparing the UKIP billboard to Nazi propaganda.

In the article, Mr Drummond said that he was looking for a large billboard to deface when he chanced upon the UKIP poster, which he says “offended me in so many ways.” The poster in question features an out-of-work labourer on a street, with the tagline “EU policy at work. British workers are hit hard by unlimited cheap labour.”

Revealed: Hillary Clinton’s State Department refused over and over to brand Al Qaeda group that kidnapped 300 girls in Nigeria as ‘terrorists’

Former Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton offered tepid condemnation of Boko Haram on Wednesday night, hours before it emerged that her State Department refused to designate the group as terrorists

Former Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton offered tepid condemnation of Boko Haram on Wednesday night, hours before it emerged that her State Department refused to designate the group as terrorists

  • CIA, FBI, DOJ and more than a dozen members of Congress begged her to add the group to State’s official list of designated terror organizations
  • A suddenly alarmed Clinton is now looking hypocritical, voicing her anger at Boko Haram after it kidnapped hundreds of Nigerian girls
  • John Kerry, the secretary of state who followed Clinton, did designate Boko Haram as a terror group, but Clinton fought it all the way
  • Members of Congress describe the al-Qaeda-linked group with words like ‘vicious,’ ‘evil,’ ‘gutless’ and ‘barbaric’


Under then-Secretary Hillary Clinton, the U.S. State Department repeatedly refused to add the Nigerian al-Qaeda affiliate group Boko Haram – the organization responsible for the recent kidnapping of more than 300 young girls – to its official list of terrorist organizations.

In November 2013, current Secretary John Kerry did what Clinton wouldn’t.

Boko Haram is the group that has claimed responsibility for kidnapping hundreds of girls in Nigeria, promising to sell them into slavery.

The Daily Beast reported Thursday that in 2011, after the group’s mass-murderers bombed the United Nations building in Abuja, Nigeria, Obama administration agencies and more than a dozen members of Congress begged Clinton to add it to its official list of designated terror organizations – but the State Department fought it and did nothing.

The UK Independence Party (UKIP) has been forced to cancel its Freepost address after far-left activists sent human waste, blood and various bulky items at a cost to the eurosceptic party. The address, which does not require a stamp, was set up so that voters could send the party queries without having to pay postage.

However, the arrangement means that the party picks up the tab for any mail it receives, leading to opponents sending it bulky, heavy items, forcing it to pay the high postage costs. Last week, a bomb disposal team was called in to deal with two suspicious packages that contained human faeces.

Some opponents also decided to use the address to return the party’s literature, with another sending eight litres of water (271 fl oz).

Most of the packages were intercepted by mail staff before they arrived at the party. Bexley UKIP tweeted a photo of a Royal Mail receipt which said they were cancelling the service. The receipt said: “You may be aware that there have been incidents of inappropriate mail items being sent to a UKIP Freepost address.

“This includes items which are prohibited [such as blood/human faces] and present a health and safety risk both to you and our Royal Mail Colleagues.”

An arrest has been made in the Netherlands in the case of a Canadian teenager who was blackmailed to expose herself in front of a webcam, Canadian police confirmed on Thursday.

The 15-year-old girl, Amanda Todd, later committed suicide after detailing her harassment on a YouTube video watched by millions around the world.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police Insp. Paulette Freill said a suspect has been arrested in the Netherlands and charged with extortion, luring and criminal harassment and possession of child pornography for the purpose of distribution.

Police did not release the name of the 35-year-old man and declined to release specifics of the case but said there were other victims in Canada and internationally.

Dutch prosecutors said the man is suspected of blackmailing girls in the U.S., Britain and the Netherlands. Canadian police said they would seek extradition.

Amanda Todd brought the problem of cyber bullying to mainstream attention in Canada after she posted a video on YouTube in which she told her story with handwritten signs, describing how she was lured by a stranger to expose her breasts on a webcam.

A Lebanese man arrested in Thailand earlier this week on suspicion of ties to terror group Hezbollah admitted to plotting a bomb attack on Israeli tourists in Bangkok, the Bangkok Post reported Friday.

According to police, Ayyad confessed that he and at least two others entered Thailand to carry out a bombing against Israeli tourists in Bangkok as well as other Israeli groups on Khao San Road over Passover and the Thai New Year — Songkran — which coincided this week.  The third suspect remains at large.

Thai authorities said the men were arrested at different locations in Bangkok after Thai police received intelligence from Israel about a planned attack on Israeli tourists during the Jewish holiday of Passover.

A Labour councillor has expressed his concerns about schoolchildren singing the national anthem and raising the Union Flag because of the “cost” of the proposed moves.

A Conservative councillor in Bolton, Mudasir Dean, proposed the moves in order to encourage patriotism. Dean’s grandfather was the town’s first Indian immigrant, reportsthe Mail.

But despite the backing of the local Labour-run council, Cllr Chris Peacock opposed the plans, insisting that the patriotic moves would cost too much. He said: “Who will pay for these new flag poles and flags? Schools’ budgets are already stretched. Raising the Union flag won’t raise standards – that should be our priority.”

A large Union Flag with eyelets runs at about £3.99 on eBay, while flagpoles can be bought for less than £60 online.

Councillor Dean said: “If we were more patriotic – if we sang our national anthem and flew our flag – and instilled it in our younger generations, [immigrants] would do [too]”.

Bolton council is now set to write to schools in the area and ask them to consider flying the flag and incorporating a performance of God Save the Queen into the school day.

Qin, from Hunan province, was also found guilty of spreading rumors about several celebrities including popular television hostess Yang Lan, the state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
