European Union’s Ursula von der Leyen moves on property confiscation


 

Former German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen was narrowly confirmed as the next President of the European Commission, the powerful administrative arm of the European Union in July 2019. Who is this woman behind the the E.U.? For the first time this week many of us discovered that she was the wizard behind the curtain pulling the strings for the organization. This time in the form of confiscating the Netherlands farms for the better good of the environment.

Thousands of farmers have gathered in the central Netherlands to protest the Dutch government’s plans to rein in emissions of nitrogen oxide and ammonia.

 

 

Yesterday’s post Headline:

Netherlands Shuts Down Farms to Meet Climate Change Mandates

The government says emissions of nitrogen oxide and ammonia, which livestock produce, must be drastically reduced close to nature areas that are part of a network of protected habitats for endangered plants and wildlife stretching across the 27-nation European Union

Ursula von der Leyen

Portion from an earlier post in 2019:

Do these policies sound familiar at all? This should give a shiver to those Brits if they still have any sense. Germany never gives up. What a war could not do, a pen will. She is adamant in her writings that she wants a E.U. military. One could surmise as opposed to NATO. One can reflect on how Putin must react to this considering Russia’s experience with Germany previously.

 

  • An examination of von der Leyen’s main policy proposals reveals that she is calling for a massive expansion of top-down powers of the European Commission. Her proposals would substantially increase the role of Brussels in virtually all aspects of economic and social life in Europe — all at the expense of national sovereignty.
  • Von der Leyen warned that Brussels would overrule EU member states opposed to her tax overhaul… She called for a comprehensive “European Rule of Law Mechanism” to ensure the primacy of EU law over the national laws of EU member states. She warned that there would be financial consequences for member states that refuse to comply…. She called for a change in rules so that the EU could act even without the unanimous consent of EU member states

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage may be her biggest critic. Addressing the European Parliament, he said:

“What you’ve seen from Ursula von der Leyen today is an attempt by the EU to take control of every single aspect of our lives. She wants to build a centralized, undemocratic, updated form of Communism that will render [obsolete] nation state parliaments, where the state controls everything, where nation state parliaments will cease to have any relevance at all.

“I have to say from our perspective, in some ways, I’m really rather pleased, because you’ve just made Brexit a lot more popular in the United Kingdom. Thank God we’re leaving!

“But it is in the aspect of defense that I think people’s minds should be focused. She’s a fanatic for building a European Army, but she’s not alone. When it’s completed, NATO will cease to exist or will not have any relevance in Europe at all.”

Finally, a new “Common European Asylum System” would require all EU member states to offer asylum to migrants who request it: “We all need to help each other and contribute.”

Following is a brief summary of von der Leyen’s main proposals for the next five years, as outlined in a 24-page document titled, “My Agenda for Europe”:

Climate Change

Von der Leyen called for the European Union to be “carbon neutral” by 2050. She pledged to propose a “European Green Deal” during her first 100 days in office. The deal would include the first “European Climate Law” to enshrine the 2050 climate neutrality target into law: “Carbon emissions must have a price. Every person and every sector will have to contribute.”

She also pledged to introduce a “Carbon Border Tax” that would apply to non-European companies, to ensure that European companies “can compete on a level playing field.” In addition, a “European Climate Pact” would “commit to a set of pledges to bring about a change in behavior, from the individual to the largest multinational.”

Von der Leyen’s social reengineering scheme would be paid for by European taxpayers: A “Sustainable Europe Investment Plan” would “support €1 trillion of climate investment over the next decade in every corner of the EU.” She also vowed that the EU “will lead international negotiations to increase the level of ambition of other major emitters by 2021.”

Rule of Law, Migration and Internal Security

Von der Leyen called for a comprehensive “European Rule of Law Mechanism” to ensure the primacy of EU law over the national laws of EU member states. She warned that there would be financial consequences for member states that refuse to comply: “I intend to focus on tighter enforcement, using recent judgements of the Court of Justice showing the impact of rule-of-law breaches on EU law as a basis. I stand by the proposal to make the rule of law an integral part of the next Multiannual Financial Framework.” She added: “The Commission will always be an independent guardian of the Treaties. Lady Justice is blind – she will defend the rule of law wherever and by whomever it is attacked.”

Von der Leyen also called for a “New Pact on Migration and Asylum” in which a reinforced European Border and Coast Guard Agency would take over border control responsibilities from EU member states: “I want to see these [EU] border guards with the ability to act at the EU’s external borders in place by 2024.”

Meanwhile, a new “Common European Asylum System” would require all EU member states to offer asylum to migrants who request it: “We all need to help each other and contribute.” In addition, the European Public Prosecutor’s Office “should have more muscle and authority” and “be able to investigate and prosecute cross-border terrorism.”

Now we find that the Woman behind the curtain is joined by our wizards behind the curtain.

President Biden issued a joint statement this week in a meeting with von der Leyen:

 

Joint Statement by President Biden and President von der Leyen on European Energy Security

 
 
Included:
The United States and the European Commission are also taking decisive action to reduce overall demand for fossil fuels in line with the Paris Agreement and our shared goal of net zero emissions no later than 2050. 
 
The Task Force has met regularly to discuss options to reduce Europe’s demand for natural gas and has also met with key stakeholders to promote the deployment of heat pumps, smart thermostats, and energy demand response solutions.  
 
We will encourage Member States and European and U.S. companies to reach an initial goal of deploying at least 1.5 million energy saving smart thermostats in European households this year.  In the coming days we will reconvene with Member States and stakeholders to discuss actionable policy recommendations to accelerate smart thermostat and heat pump deployment and production in an effort to ensure supply for key energy efficiency solutions are ramping to meet the growing demand. 
 
Mindful of the environmental impact of LNG production and consumption, the United States and the European Commission will step up their cooperation to reduce methane emissions, to ensure that EU-U.S. LNG trade is aligned with the scope of an internationally accepted measurement, reporting and verification standard for methane emissions while working to reduce venting and flaring in natural gas production, and methane leakage in the transmission and LNG supply chain.
 
We will also continue our cooperation on reduction of methane emissions globally. Most recently, the joint launch with 11 other countries of the Global Methane Pledge Energy Pathway will advance both climate progress and energy security internationally.
 
 
And how are the farmers doing? You will own nothing and be happy.

The best of the swamp.

    The fact that China and India, two of THE biggest emitters of all those things the Left believes is killing our climate aren’t being hit FIRST to cease and desist is proof enough to me this whole thing is a farce and only committed to killing democracy along with all Western economies.

    I can see it, and yet it remains inconceivable to me that the European people would reject the German tank but embrace the Third Reich’s goals with only the stroke of a pen. The United Kingdom is fortunate to escape this madness, and we — smugly sat on the opposite shore, urging Biden onward. If we Americans cannot see where the political left wishes to take us at this point, we will never see it — not even with Biden’s jackboot pressing down on our necks. Well, here it is, 82 years after the beginning of the second war to end all wars — it is time for another. Same teams, different players, and in all likelihood, two or three times the number of war dead.

      I now understand Putin. He knew what this lady was all about.. And she can declare war alone without any input from member states. She uses the so called EU courts to rule when a member state is in violation such as the Netherlands and imposes the sentence.

      The picture the of Dutch farmers caravan setting off to piss into the wind reminds one of the French Army in Parisian taxicabs heading for the front in WW I. Rather than dying in trenches for the next several years they’ll merely receive a spanking and head home with their tails between their legs. In comparison Ursula makes our Hildebeast seem like a girl scout.

      //I now understand Putin.//

      When the Russia-Ukraine dustup began in earnest, I remember observing that given all we know about the UN, the EU, and NATO vis-à-vis Russia — it is impossible not to understand Putin’s point of view. That doesn’t make me an acolyte of Putin or Russian ideology — it simply makes me wonder (given the NATO treaty) why NATO member countries have acted so aggressively toward Russia, so blatantly against Russian interests (beginning in 1994-95), when they could have been working toward helping Russia transition to a capitalist society and join the family of nations.

        Wasn’t there a similar time when the Russian Revolution occurred? I am a little rusty on my Russian History which I took in college a few years ago..but there was an opportunity for Russia to go another way… You did make a believer out of me re: Putin after we have had a number of back and forth conversations about Ukraine.

      E.U. to implement a $300K fine per barbarian for non acceptance

      A post done in 2016
      European nations that turn away refugees could be forced to pay roughly $300,000 in fines for each individual rejected, European Union officials are expected to announce Wednesday.
      The plan is part of the European Commission’s plan to overhaul its current asylum rules that neared collapse last year after more than a million refugees and migrants flooded across E.U. borders, the Financial Times reported Tuesday.
      Officials who saw the proposal in advance said the fine would act as a sanction on nations that refuse to adhere to the E.U.’s asylum system. While the exact penalty is still in flux, a diplomat said that it would amount to “hundreds of thousands of euros.”
