    For anyone still at a loss to explain The Donald’s popularity, here is today’s object lesson: People don’t like having their country taken over by outsiders. Especially outsiders who come to rape and plunder (with apologies to those of Viking stock who practically invented raping and plundering, butt haven’t engaged in that sort of behavior for thousands of years now).  Even Swedes seem to have their limits: (highlights added) Sweden’s nationalists lead polls for first time. UPDATED: More people support Jimmie Åkesson’s Sweden Democrats than any other political group in Sweden, according to a new poll which puts the nationalists...

    Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders (D) has said that socialist policies characteristic of countries like Sweden should be implemented in the U.S. As a Swede, I would strongly advise against this. The worldwide socialist movement praises the Scandinavian countries for their high living standards and welfare. Easy to do for someone who has never lived in Sweden or read a book on Swedish history. First off: The success of Sweden predates the welfare state. In reality, the economy began to fall behind in the 1960s when the state rapidly expanded. Moreover, Sweden enjoyed the highest growth in the industrialized world between...

    Once a solid, vibrant Lutheran stronghold, Scandinavia today is probably the most secularized region of the Western world. Spiritually, Scandinavians have become “the people that dwell in darkness.” Scandinavia is filled with large, beautiful, empty churches. This has not happened by accident. . . It is probably the case today that a randomly selected African has a better chance than a randomly selected Scandinavian of hearing the Gospel clearly preached.  There was a time when every Swede was Lutheran from birth by law, and no other denomination was permitted. The Church of Sweden took to calling itself Den Svenska...

    Lefties like to tout Sweden — a country of ten milliion people — whenever they’re bloviating about the joys of national socialism. But here’s one native-born Swedish-American who’s having none of it: This is the last post on this blog. I am leaving Sweden for good shortly, and will no longer be following its descent from what was once the third most prosperous country in the world. Frankly, it’s just too damn depressing. I was born and raised in Sweden, which leaves a cultural mark even though I moved to USA in the 1990s and have spent the better part...

    The Clinton Foundation’s Swedish organization raised $26 million while the Scandinavian country’s government was lobbying U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to not impose further sanctions on Iran. The Swedish business dealings with the Islamic republic were at risk from the possible new sanctions according to the Washington Times. The William J. Clinton Foundation Insamlingsstiftelse had never been screened by the State Department ethics officials despite an agreement implemented in 2009 when Hillary Clinton became Secretary of State. The agreement was intended to implement a transparent review system of her husband, Bill Clinton’s, fundraising and public speaking activities. The review...

    Mona Walter is on a mission. Her mission is for more Muslims to know what is in the Koran. She says if more Muslims knew what was in the Koran, more would leave Islam. Walter came to Sweden from Somalia as a war refugee when she was 19. She says she was excited about joining a modern European nation with equal rights for women. But as a young Muslim woman, that was not the Sweden she encountered. A Real Introduction to Islam It was in Sweden that she first experienced radical Islam on a daily basis.

    Bill Clinton’s foundation set up a fundraising arm in Sweden that collected $26 million in donations at the same time that country was lobbying Hillary Rodham Clinton’s State Department to forgo sanctions that threatened its thriving business with Iran, according to interviews and documents obtained by The Washington Times. The Swedish entity, called the William J. Clinton Foundation Insamlingsstiftelse, was never disclosed to or cleared by State Department ethics officials, even though one of its largest sources of donations was a Swedish government-sanctioned lottery. As the money flowed to the foundation from Sweden, Mrs. Clinton’s team in Washington declined to...

    The new report issued Monday is the first to tackle LGBT rights since Jordanian Prince Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein was named U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights. The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, called for all countries to provide legal protections for same sex couples and their children in a report issued Monday. Hussein stopped short of recommending countries to call those protections “marriage,” but the report suggested that whatever these partnerships are called, they should make all the same protections available to same-sex couples. “States should address discrimination by: …. Providing legal recognition...

    This might seem very surprising indeed but it could be said that the United States actually has less poverty than Sweden. I know this isn’t the story you’re used to hearing but bear with me. Given that elections are looming it must be time for the Economic Policy Institute to release their State of Working America report. Just before an election is of course exactly the right time to release impartial figures on how everyone is doing. Which is what makes this chart of theirs so interesting: This is not calculating poverty by the usual US method. This is using...

    The shipwreck was filmed by a remote-controlled submarine A near-intact shipwreck apparently dating from the 17th century has been found in the Baltic Sea, Swedish television has said.The discovery was made during filming for an under-water documentary series. Public service SVT television said the wreck could be from the same era as the famous Vasa warship, which sank on its maiden voyage in August 1628. The broadcaster said the Baltic's low oxygen content and low temperature had helped preserve the wreck. SVT said the origins of the ship were unclear but its features resembled the work of Dutch ship-builders...
