...Are Nothing New - Alain DeBenoist
Translated from the French by Tom Sunic
A: The new law allows the installation of “black boxes” on internet networks and servers which operate with the technologies of “deep packet inspection” and which enable the monitoring of private conversations on the internet, as well as the interception and scanning of all communications the goal of which is to detect, by means of secretly kept algorithms, all “suspicious” words and every “unusual” behavior. This law also allows, without any need to seek court approval, the wiring up of homes, computer hacking in order to siphon off their contents, the use of portable “IMSI-catchers” (false antenna relays intercepting telephone calls in a specific perimeter), the “key loggers” (software for reading in real time what a person types on his keyboard), vehicle tagging, geolocation of people and objects, etc.
The “black boxes” also allow the analyses of all the “metadata “, that is to say, to keep track of all traces left behind by a person using the phone or the internet. Any data value, being proportional to the square of the data number to which it is connected, the growing collection of the “metadata” thus enables not only how to predict the behavior of a group of individuals with their specific characteristics, but also to prod into every aspect of citizens’ lives: their relationship, their mail, their social networking habits, their banking transactions, their travels, purchases, subscriptions, lifestyle, age, political views, etc.
Hence, this is no longer a matter of targeting someone; rather, it means crisscrossing the entire landscape. Despite the soothing assurances by the authorities, what we are witnessing is a massive surveillance of citizens, even though, the vast majority of them cannot be suspected of being linked with any offense. The emergency rule becomes the rule. Private life no longer exist and civil liberties are under threat of the law which set itself the objective to find out whether each of us knows people who know some people, who know some other people who are not “clean .” As the “republican” tradition demands we are now back at the Law of Suspects of 1793. With good reason citizens keep complaining about not being heard. Well, short of not being heard, they are now being listened to.
Q: We’ve known for a long time that citizens are always ready to give up freedom in exchange for a semblance of security. Hence the birth of the US Patriot Act. French Prime Minister Manuel Valls, in fact, uses the same argument: “it is the fight against terrorism.” Last year, Benoît Hamon, added to it: “if you have nothing to hide there is no problem with being listened to.”
A: A historical reminder. On December 8, 1893, in order to avenge Ravachol [a “bomb-throwing anarchist”], who had been guillotined the previous year, the anarchist Auguste Vaillant detonated a bomb in the Chamber of Deputies, causing no casualties. A few days later, the deputies passed the anti-terrorism laws, soon to be known as the “villainous laws” (“lois scélérates”) “stipulating the suppression of the freedom of the press and prohibiting any anarchist gathering, even if held at a private place. The banker and the future French President Casimir Perier stated on that occasion that “freedom of speech does not apply to the enemies of civilization.” Sounds familiar? “Terrorism,” “civilization”, restriction of freedom, all of this can be found there. The “fight against terrorism” is only a pretext — albeit a very old one). None of the measures that were taken pursuant to these new laws would have prevented the attacks from occurring over the recent months. By the way, one does not need to set out a trawl to catch a handful of sardines.
As to those who say it does not bother them because “they have nothing to hide”, they certainly deserve the “GPNC” (the Grand Prize of Citizens Naivety). These are the same idiots who watch televised games or who purchase lottery scratch cards at the tobacco store hoping to strike it rich. When uttering these words they give up, of their own volition, their freedom, without realizing that the reasons stipulated by this law (from “collective violence prevention” to that of “the reconstruction or maintenance of banned groups”) are extremely vague. Hence, under given circumstances these legal provisions can enable to place under police surveillance any joint action aimed at changing political, social and economic structure of the country, every social protest movement, all those having dissenting views, or those who took the liberty of challenging, one way or another, the established order, be they the Sivensdemonstrators, or the Notre-Dame-des-Landes protesters, or those taking part in the “Demonstration for All” (“Manif pour tous “).
Q: Our rulers are eager to listen to everyone; yet it is themselves who are also being listened to, particularly by the Americans. How should have the Presidential palace reacted to the recent revelations made by Julian Assange about it?
A: President François Hollande could have demanded that Washington immediately recall Jane D. Hartley, the US Ambassador to France. He could have granted asylum to Julian Assange and even to Edward Snowden. He could have announced that France would withdraw from all talks on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). He did nothing. He is the vassal of the USA on which he depends now in order to conduct operations in which the French Armed Forces are engaged. Ever since it joined NATO again, having lost all of it independence, France stripped itself of any autonomous decision-making.
Alain de Benoist is a journalist and writer who, in 1968 founded the Groupement de recherche et d’études pour la civilisation européenne, an ethnonationalist think-tank.

Don’t worry, I’m the kind of foreigner that you’ll like. Hopefully.
Majorityrights began with and has long been committed to freedom of speech, no matter how controversial the opinion, as I can clearly see from the archives. It has been published as an internet magazine with considerable bravery given the political environment and the risks that come from being misunderstood, and has had a pretty diverse set of contributors and viewers. On 14 October 2014, it marked its tenth year in operation, and I hope that its eleventh year coming in just a few months will be as illuminating as ever. As a newcomer, and as an East Asian woman, I feel privileged to be invited to submit articles from my perspective and experience.
Here, on what could be described as freedom of speech’s front porch in its tenth year, we have a good place to talk frankly and honestly as neighbours and allies with common interests. What I’m about to provide is what I see as a necessary polemic against some positions that exist in Majorityrights’ archives and an invitation to conversation as such.
It is said in warfare about the ‘turning manoeuvre’, that when you move into an opponent’s rear in order to cut them off from their support base, you are taking the risk of getting yourself cut off from your own.
A similar manoeuvre has been attempted by many ethno-nationalists in Europe since 2001 on a political level with regards to the War on Terror, through their decision to advance negative attitudes toward it and their decision to develop talking points that reinforce those attitudes. They are refusing to endorse the War on Terror under the belief that this non-endorsement is somehow a ‘good’ angle to protest the political establishment from. It is not good. Those ethno-nationalists are getting themselves cut off because what they are doing actually undermines their own ability to address a severe demographic threat and also undermines their ability to address a persistent international security threat. It’s an unfortunate situation, because it is crucial for people to be able to square the thoughts that are going on their heads with the reality on the ground: The reality of the necessity of overseas contingency operations.
To understand how things reached the stage that they have reached, first a person has to remember how things started out. The world was stunned to see the events that were taking place on television on 11 September 2001. Nineteen Arab men had hijacked airliners, and rather than putting the planes down at an airport and demanding a ransom, they chose to put the planes down by sending them into buildings in New York City.
People seem to have struggled to understand how this could happen.
Over time, a self-hating narrative built up in which the citizens of the North Atlantic were largely blaming their own governments for having allegedly ‘fanned the flames of conflict in the Middle East’ by allegedly ‘supporting radical Islamists’, while simultaneously also allegedly ‘fanning the flames of conflict in the Middle East’ by allegedly ‘opposing Islamists and offending Muslims’. Both of these narratives cannot make sense at the same time, and I would argue that neither of those narratives are true. Furthermore, the apparent implication in both of those narratives is that the North Atlantic should refrain from pursuing its interests in the zone to the south.
That is an idea that should be rejected on the basis that it leads only to paralysis in the political sphere, and a loss of initiative in the military sphere. Groups which argue that the North Atlantic should adopt a passive stance and not assert its interests, and those who place blame onto the wrong people, may mean well, but they do not realise that the narratives they are creating can lead to serious crises which may not have actually been intended by those dissenting groups.

No, not a commitment to the 14 Words, but evergreen news of dedication to Israel:

It is now only too clear that Americans have lost their country. The Jews are our masters and we are their slaves. What can we do about it?
An abridged adaption by Lasha Darkmoon of a recent article by Video Rebel.
9/11 finally revealed to us the extraordinary chutzpah of our Jewish masters.
That the Israelis did 9/11 with the help of Jewish collaborators in PNAC and AIPAC has become all too apparent to the cognoscenti. The hidden criminality behind this event has been cleverly covered up by our Jewish owned media.
9/11 was a definite declaration of war against America by Israel.
The Israelis wired World Trade Center Towers 1, 2 and 7 for demolition. Tower 7 was never struck by a plane. Yet it fell down in 6.5 seconds.
The BBC was told by the Rothschild-owned Reuters news agency that WTC 7 had collapsed an hour before it did. America was still on Daylight Savings Time but Britain had just left Summer Time, so a confused BBC announced the collapse of WTC 7 fully 24 minutes before it happened in New York.
Knowing that your government can kill the President and blow up buildings with Americans inside, as in Oklahoma City and in New York, helps to restrain hostile criticism of the government. People are nervous and say to themselves, “If they can kill 3000 innocent Americans for Israel and get away with it, what chance do I have?”
9/11 unleashed America’s “War on Terror” against various Muslim countries unable to accept direct invasion and conquest by Israel. This was America doing Israel’s dirty work for it. Israel claims all the land from the Nile to the Euphrates. The War on Terror is simply a process allowing Jews to gain control of non-Jewish lands.

Let’s start with acknowledged instances of the use of nuclear weapons and some officially unacknowledged ones.

Muad’Dib has released an updated version of his movie 7/7 RIPPLE EFFECT, to commemorate the 7th anniversary of the July 7, 2005, London bus and tube bombings. The first version of 7/7 Ripple Effect made a clear case for people with inside access perpetrating 7/7, not Muslims. Muad’Dib sent copies of this video to the courthouse trying to prosecute innocent Muslims over the 7/7 bombings. The police arrested him for “perverting the course of justice.” Muad’Dib sought refuge in Ireland and spent over a year and a half fighting extradition to England.
Some of this ended up in the news. They exposed his identity as John Hill, and tried to trash him because of his unusual religious beliefs, never addressing any of the arguments in his video.
Muad’Dib lost his legal battles in Ireland and was taken to England, in shackles, by anti-terrorist police. No record was made that he was imprisoned, and only clamor by his supporters got him registered as an inmate, but only briefly, and he was granted bail after 4 months in jail, after the prison service kept making “mistakes” or “forgetting” to bring Muad’Dib to his own court hearings. Muad’Dib learned that many people had mailed his video to the courthouse, to prevent innocent Muslims from being scapegoated, but none of these were arrested because they were just mailers; Muad’Dib was the one who produced the video.
Muad’Dib attempted to challenge the court’s/British legal system’s lack of jurisdiction, but this was brushed aside. Muad’Dib’s trial has to be one of the most absurd instances of prosecutorial misconduct. Even the Judge summarized the case against Muad’Dib with gross distortions, redefining words, disallowing evidence by the defense and assigning statements to Muad’Dib that he never made. But the case was such a farce that the jury returned a not guilty verdict. See summary of Muad’Dib’s ordeal.
Muad’Dib was using the domain jforjustice.co.uk, but this domain is apparently in the process of being seized.
Now who were these people with inside access to perpetrate the 7/7 bombings? 7/7 wasn’t masterminded by those racially English. People don’t do something like 7/7 to their own, and England had nothing to gain from 7/7, only things to lose: deaths, injuries, fear, hatred, emotional trauma, legislation to further undermine civil liberties, deeper involvement in foreign wars, debt. The only people who stood to gain from it were the ones who benefited from having English soldiers go around the world fighting and killing Muslims. Only one racial group had the means, the motivation, the solid credentials to pull off false flag operations, and the need for 7/7.

Much has been written on the deterioration of public school education and television programming over the last few decades. These amount to an attempt to dumb down the population.
The MSM would have the public believe that a Head of State was using an ordinary email service provider, based in the U.S. [New York], to discuss personal matters and matters associated with the State. The MSM would also have the public believe that this Head of State used this email service even though he knew that the U.S. administration is hostile to Syria and there’s a nuclear-armed hostile neighbor, Israel, that would love to get its hands on the President’s emails, which the Mossad surprisingly didn’t hack much earlier. The MSM would also like the public to believe that this Head of State, fluent in three languages, highly educated and a promoter of internet services in Syria, did all this in spite of having “a degree of awareness of web security”:
Deleting emails as soon as they arrive shows a degree of awareness of web security. So too did the fact that Assad never attached his name or initials to any of the emails he sent. However, many of the emails that arrived in his inbox are addressed to him as president and contain intimate details of events and discussions that were not known outside of the inner sanctum and would have been very difficult to manipulate. (source)
Only a dumbed-down people could be sold such a tale. The contents of the emails unsurprisingly make the case Israel wants to make.
The President’s wife apparently spent tens of thousands on chandeliers and candlesticks. Now where have we heard this before? Marie Antoinette was accused of “indulgence” when Moses Mendelssohn, Jew, commissioned a London jeweler to create a 250,000-livres diamond necklace, which was delivered to her. This was quickly followed by accusations of adultery. One thing led to another, the masses started disliking the royalty, and the French revolution was on. When France burned, Marie Antoinette was said to have stated that if the people don’t have bread to eat, let them eat cake. Jewish liars are doing the same thing today that they did during 1788-1799 in France: Asma al-Assad is living a high life, oblivious to her country burning around her!
In the leaked emails, Assad is said to have received advice from Hezbollah and the Iranian government, a nexus that Israel has been making the case for. Assad even describes his promised reforms as “rubbish laws of parties, elections, media....”!
One of the emails shows President Assad corresponding with Luna Al-Chebel, a Syrian anchor who resigned from Al-Jazeera, a TV network operating under the auspices of Jews, having had her fill of their lies and not wanting to be a participant in promoting these lies, which she later talked about in public. Luna Al-Chebel used her hotmail account, and President Assad had no issues sending correspondence to a hotmail account! Native Arabic speakers quickly determined that the people who fabricated this correspondence aren’t native Arabic speakers.
And how did the leaks come to light? The Guardian tell us that initially the Syrian opposition had gotten hold of the emails and were monitoring them, but the hacker group Anonymous hacked into the Syrian ministry of public affairs’ website and trawled through more than 80 email addresses stored on the ministry’s server, and “Somehow, someone searching through the ministry’s emails was able to establish that the Sam email belonged to the president.”
The affair is a kosher fabrication, and Anonymous, being the Jewish-funded entity it is, won’t renounce the “credit” where credit isn’t due.
