Invasion of Europe news….
If you don’t know about Raspail or have never read his 1973 novel, The Camp of the Saints, you must.
Actually even mention of the book, banned in some parts of the world, could bring the speech police down on RRW again just as it approaches its 13th anniversary. (It was this time last year that they succeeded in shutting down RRW for a few months.)
Chronicles has published an excellent obituary about the man who told the truth nearly a half century before most see it now—western civilization is committing suicide by ‘welcoming’ mass migration from the third world.
You might have noticed how mention of the novel by Trump adviser Stephen Miller caused the Left (specifically the Southern Poverty Law Center and its media sycophants) to melt down last year, see here at NPR.
Below is a bit of an obituary for the “thinker” by Srdja Trifkovic at Chronicles:
(emphasis is mine)
The great and good French novelist and thinker Jean Raspail died on June 13, three weeks short of his 95th birthday. I was deeply saddened by the news, although at his age it was to be expected. It is ironic that he succumbed to the COVID-19 virus, the product and totemic symbol of our age and the globalized world, both of which he loathed with a passion.
In Camp of the Saints, his best-known work, Raspail castigated the “submersion” of France by the landing of a fleet of derelict boats from India loaded with refugees. The rest of the grim story is known to Chronicles readers, or should be.
“We must reread The Camp of the Saints, which, beyond evoking with a talented pen the migratory perils, had—long before [Michel Houellebecq’s] Submission—mercilessly described the submission of our elites,” tweeted Marine Le Pen in tribute to Raspail. In addition to his resolute stand against all Third World—but especially Muslim—immigration, and in line with his traditionalist understanding of Catholicism, Raspail condemned communism and capitalism with equal force, as the two monstrous twins born of modernity.
In his final years—almost five decades after publishing his prophetic dystopia—Jean Raspail was resigned that our civilization is on the “road to disappearance.” As he explained in an interview published in Valeurs Actuelles in 2013, he had no desire to join the massive circle of intellectuals who spend their time debating immigration because, in his view, such talk is useless:
The people already intuitively know that France, as our ancestors shaped her over the centuries, is on the road to disappearance. The audience is being kept amused by endless talk about immigration, but the final truth is never stated.
What can be done? Raspail’s verdict was clear:
There are only two ways to deal with immigrants. Either we accommodate them, and France—her culture, her civilization—will be eradicated without so much as a funeral. In my view, that is what is going to happen. Or else we do not accommodate them at all, which means we stop sanctifying the Other and rediscover our neighbors.
Jean Raspail will be sorely missed by all Frenchmen and other Europeans who refuse to go gently into the multicultural night.
There couldn’t be a better time in world history, as the heathen hordes (of various hues!) run wild in the streets of the civilized world, erasing history and attempting to silence anyone who disagrees with them through intimidation and fear, to read The Camp of the Saints.

There are many, many news outlets scrambling to get an answer about how Obama Department of Homeland Security whistleblower Phil Haney died last week. The local sheriff, in Amador County, California where his body was found, quickly said he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, but his friends and family say NO WAY!
One of Haney’s friends, Leo Hohmann, posted a masterful piece about his patriot colleague.
As I looked at Hohmann’s post just now and wondered what bit could I snip that would capture how Leo describes his relationship with Haney and what he learned by spending time with him, I settled on this one (below) which is a nugget of wisdom Haney leaves all of you that should give you courage going forward.
However, I urge you to read the entire post at LeoHohmann.com:
Murder of Phil Haney, DHS whistleblower, only strengthens resolve of like-minded patriots
If not for Phil, I would have no knowledge of the concept of fitnah, which is key to understanding the whole Islamist strategy to label and shame those of us who understand what they’re up to. Fitnah is a type of stubborn disbelief on the part of non-Muslims who presented a challenge to the spread of Islam from the time of Muhammad up to today.
If the disbelievers persist, they must be dealt with. How do you do that when you don’t have the majority of a population? You play the victim card and use that to slander your enemies. That’s what Islam does so masterfully to gain leverage in non-Muslim countries like America, where gullible, self-loathing liberals fall easy prey to the fitnah strategy. Even the threat of being called an Islamophobe makes them wilt and run for cover. Islamophobia is nothing but the modern-day application of Islamic fitnah. Thank you Phil Haney for this revelation.
I know many of you met Haney as he traveled the country attempting to wake up America to the threat within and we all mourn his passing.
I’ll update this post when we get some answers we can believe about his death. I’m seeing some suggestions that the Dept. of Justice should launch an investigation. But, ahhhh! the way things are going at the DOJ right now can we even trust them to get it right.
From the man who coined the phrase the “ruling class” to describe those on the Left and some swamp-dwelling so-called ‘conservatives’ on the Right who believe they are more entitled than the rest of us, comes another important message.
Facing Up To the Revolution
by Angelo Codevilla yesterday at American Greatness.
Save this, revisit it, and remember this as we move past the impeachment scam and last night’s shameful behavior by Nancy Pelosi and her ilk.
More importantly know that not only are you permitted, but are required to “do unto them more and before they do unto us” again.
This is no time to be squeamish.
…our ultimate objective is, as Lincoln said, “peace among ourselves and with all nations.” But what kind of peace we may get depends on the extent to which we may compel our enemies to leave us in peace. And for that, we must do unto them more and before they do unto us.
“Samaritas is incredibly excited to be partnering with Wayne County and Wayne Metro for this important project that will create opportunities for affordable transitional housing for the New Americans families in our care.”

This must be Michigan day for me. Earlier at ‘Frauds and Crooks’ I wrote about all of the ‘new American’ doctors going to prison there for ripping off taxpayers and fueling the Opioid Crisis!
Now comes news that Wayne County (of course!) is building housing to accommodate impoverished refugees in partnership with Samaritas. What! All low income Americans in Wayne County have homes!
And, it won’t cost the county a dime because the money is coming via Washington, DC’s famous money tree—-you and me!
Freedom Village, a safe haven for refugees, planned in Hamtramck
Hamtramck — Wayne County is working to aid refugees fleeing their war-torn countries for new lives in Michigan with a safe haven they are calling Freedom Village, officials announced Monday.
The county is partnering with Wayne Metropolitan Community Action Agency, Samaritas and the city of Hamtramck to create the resettlement designed to provide refugees and immigrants with transitional affordable housing.
Construction of three two-family homes to house six families on Faber in Hamtramck is underway and is expected to be completed by summer 2020, county officials said.
The program was created to provide a better life to low-income refugees and immigrants by surrounding them with resources to eventually pursue permanent homeownership opportunities, Wayne County Executive Warren Evans said.
“We are a welcoming county that derives its strength from the diversity of its residents, and this project epitomizes that core value,” Evans said in a statement.
The Hamtramck project will develop newly constructed, affordable houses on Wayne County Land Bank-owned parcels in the city.
After the parcels are cleared, Wayne County will assemble the properties for the Hamtramck Refugee Resettlement project.
Under the agreement, the new construction will be at no cost to the city of Hamtramck. It will increase the taxable value of the vacant lots, bringing them back onto the tax rolls and contributing revenue to the city, officials said.
Wayne County Metropolitan Community Action Agency will serve as the property developer and owner, and Samaritas, a resettlement agency, will place refugees and provide further services.
Those darn Lutherans in the housing business (again)! You need to know that Lutheran Social Services of Michigan rebranded and became Samaritas in 2016. See my post:
Lutheran Social Services of Michigan, rebrands, no longer wants to be tagged as Lutheran
Earlier LSS got into some housing hanky-panky here.
Back to the Detroit News,
CEO Sam Beals said Samaritas, which has helped resettle families in Michigan for 70 years, couldn’t be more excited for the unique partnership.
“Samaritas is incredibly excited to be partnering with Wayne County and Wayne Metro for this important project that will create opportunities for affordable transitional housing for the New Americans families in our care,” Beals said. “Having beautiful builds like this one, appropriately called Freedom Village, in Hamtramck is much needed and a great location for this project as a welcoming city in metro Detroit.”
More than 600,000 foreign-born individuals live in Michigan, and of that, more than 70% live in southeast Michigan, according to the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan.
County officials did not disclose the cost of the program but said it’s being funded with federal housing dollars through Wayne County HOME Investment Partnerships Program, a federal grant program through the U.S. Department of Housing and Development.
Samaritas is a $100 Million a year operation and received over $30 million in taxpayer funded grants in one recent year. Now they are in the federal housing business. Hmmmm!
