Italy thinking about ‘Nuclear Option’ in moving on migrants to Northern Europe

Things are coming to a head in Italy with the influx of refugees and no one is talking about it. Less than 7,000 have been moved on out of Italy and still they pour in. It is reported they are at the breaking point. 13,500 in a 48 hour period arrived just at the end of June. A number of countries are now refusing to accept any,with the EU issuing threats against those countries. Where are the women and children? Just asking:

Senior Italian government figures are threatening to issue European Union visas to 200,000 migrants, granting them unrestricted access to the bloc’s borderless Schengen Zone.

In response to Italy’s mounting crisis, the EU is planning to transport migrants to Europe directly from North Africa and for EU members to resettle them. Brussels expects the United Kingdom to engage in the programme and “volunteer” to accept a quota migrants, despite its vote to leave the bloc in June 2016.

Deputy Foreign Minister Mario Giro and Senator Luigi Manconi told The Times that the government was discussing issuing migrants with temporary visas which would allow them to leave Italy and move freely through the bloc’s 26 Schengen countries.

Mr. Giro and others from the ruling Democratic Party believe Italy can exploit the little-known European Council Directive 2001/55, drafted after the Balkans conflict, to give temporary EU entry permits to ‘displaced people’ – triggering another wave of mass migration into Northern Europe.

In 2015, at the height of the migrant crisis, the EU pledged to redistribute 160,000 African and Middle Eastern migrants based in Italy and Greece to other EU member-states signed up to the bloc’s common asylum policy – but as of June 9th, 2017, only 6,896 migrants have been relocated from Italy.

Countries such a Viségrad nations PolandHungary, and Slovakia are defying the supranational bloc and refusing the forced migrant distribution on grounds of culture and national security.

Mattia Toaldo, a senior analyst at the European Council on Foreign Relations, said: “If migrants continue to arrive and Italy decides to give them papers to cross borders and leave Italy it would be a nuclear option. Italians have lost any hope of getting help from the EU and may say, ‘If you won’t make it a common challenge, we will’.”…….

More than 100,000 migrants crossed the Mediterranean Sea in the first six months of 2017.  Italy has overtaken Greece to become the main point of entry to Europe in the ongoing migrant crisis, with welcome centres in a state of near-collapse after 13,500 arrived in a 48-hour period at the end of June.

E.U. spends half of its budget on ‘greener’ farm subsidies

Who would have guessed about this little number? You think we are nuts? I really was looking for the story EU Child safety rules govern ballons and whistles.. outlawing them for the kiddies which I caught on Michael Savage.. but this story is so much richer. Pick your EU story. First:

And balloons aren’t the only target of the new toy safety regulations. The regs also crack down on popular stocking-stuffers and party favors like whistles and magnetic fishing games, the Telegraph reported

EU plans reforms for ‘greener’ farm subsidies

I feel so much better now about our country. Madness , total madness. And we should worry about the E.U.? We should worry about bailiing them out?

EU plans reforms for ‘greener’ farm subsidies

Believe this or not…. the E.U. spends half of its budget on subsidizing green farm subsidies.

The European Union has announced plans to reform its Common Agricultural Policy – its most expensive scheme, and one of the most controversial.

The CAP cost 58bn euros (£51bn; $80bn) last year – 47% of the whole EU budget.  

The Commission said the aim of the reforms was to “strengthen the competitiveness, sustainability and permanence of agriculture throughout the EU in order to secure for European citizens a healthy and high-quality source of food, preserve the environment and develop rural areas”.

It said the changes would gradually move rewards away from intensive farming to more sustainable practices.

The European Commission does not want to cut the budget, but change its priorities – including linking direct payments to environmental measures. More at  BBC

EU, World Bank brutalize Africans for Carbon Credits

Here is a story that Al Gore and his henchmen, the Liberal wacko’s, the Progressives, who care so much for the environment, that they will not let you know about it. And the EU and the World Bank are equally responsible. But this is their M.O. for the uninitiated. Our lives are nothing to them, we have no value. In fact, we are a burden to their precious planet. For you see, they think there are far to many of us. So for these sad folks it is too late. Let this be our wake up call. Because sooner or later, they will come for us. Yes indeed.

The government of Uganda and the U.K.-based “carbon credits” firm New Forests Company — accredited by the United Nations and largely financed by the World Bank and the European Union — are under intense public pressure after evidence emerged that over 20,000 poor Ugandan farmers were brutally evicted from their lands in order for New Forests Company to plant trees. The atrocities, publicized in a September 22 report by the non-profit aid group Oxfam, have made headlines around the world. But not in America. They are still trying to ram the credits down our throats, and this is bad press.

“We were beaten by soldiers. They beat my husband and put him in jail,” Naiki Apanabang, who obtained her family’s land in recognition of her grandfather’s military service, told Oxfam investigators. “The eviction was very violent.” Apanabang and her eight children no longer have enough food to eat — let alone money for schooling.   …..unanimously telling investigators horror stories of brutality, shootings, wanton destruction of livelihoods, and more. “The communities Oxfam spoke to describe the evictions as anything but voluntary or peaceful,” the report noted.  

Ugandan authorities granted the UN-accredited carbon-trading firm a license to plant trees on the land in 2005. So-called “carbon credits” earned from the plantation would then be sold to companies to offset their emissions of CO2. The problem was that tens of thousands of people had been living off of the land for decades.

Here is a refresher as to what the Progressives are all about. Let us not forget for a nanosecond.

Sarkozy meets with Obama, hang on to your dollars

Here is one to keep our eye on. I had heard that Sarkozy was going to push Obama to accept a new monetary policy of going off the dollar, and moving into a basket of currencies. Keep in mind regarding the IMF, we pony up about 20 percent. No doubt we wil be going in debt to China to bail out Europe. How about a hearing Republicans? New Tea Party folks out there, make your move. Here tis:

The euro lost ground on Monday, falling to its lowest level since mid-September after a Sunday report that said Portugal was under increasing pressure to accept a bailout from the European Union (EU) and International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Amid those woes, Nicolas Sarkozy, president of France, sought to gain support from President Barack Obama for G20 goals that include tighter control of commodity prices and dollar exchange rates.

Sarkozy, as current head of the G20, will seek Obama’s support for greater global food price and currency stability this week in Washington. The French president intends to begin monetary system reforms to prevent countries from simply dropping their currencies to give momentum to their export business during the downturn. He also wants more transparency in both trading and pricing in commodity markets, as well as more stringent commodity derivatives trade regulation such as those being pushed for other derivatives.

Sarkozy meets with Obama on Monday in Washington. One of Sarkozy’s advisors said of the meeting, “As we sense it, more multilateralism is the best answer to the increased instability in the world. We want to broach this thinking with the Americans and see if they are willing to join in such an approach, whereafter we can produce more precise proposals.”

Judges in modern, moderate Kosovo refuse U.S. request to extradite accused jihadist

Please remind me why we are and have sent our blood and treasure to this Muslim loving country? I know, the ethnic cleansing thing was and is abhorrent. But in return for saving all of your sorry……, could you help us out with the Terrorist thing going our way?? Hey Europe, his next stop  could be coming your way too.

 Three European judges serving in Kosovo turned down a United States request to extradite a Kosovo Albanian man wanted on terrorism charges, the European Union mission said Friday. The man, Bajram Asllani, 29, was arrested on June 17 after federal prosecutors in North Carolina accused him of providing material support to terrorism suspects and conspiring to kill and hurt people abroad. The mission said that there were no accords between the United States and Kosovo governing extradition of Kosovo’s citizens, and that the United States request did not adequately demonstrate well-grounded suspicions that Mr. Asllani had committed the crimes for which he was charged.

Asllani was released from detention on Friday with the promise to report to Kosovo police twice a week, Reuters reported. Asllani told a Kosovo news service that he wanted to be extradited to the U.S. Yes, you do that.

Hat Tip from Jihad Watch

Just Say No!None of our money to bail out Greece! UPDATE

Here it comes! Cloward- Piven model is in use and this will be one of the excuses. We soon will be bankrupt. We will start to bail out the European Socialists.(See our earlier posts: Cloward-Piven Strategy)

U.S. tax dollars already pay for 17% of the IMF’s liquidity. And any bailout by the IMF would have to be approved by the U.S. government. According to the IMF’s rules, major decisions require an 85% supermajority. And the U.S. is the only country with the power to block a supermajority on its own. So how much are we shelling out now? Under the cover of the German Government.

As the Greek Debt Crisis continues, President Obama needs to stand firm: American tax dollars should not be used to bail out Greece – or any country – that engages in reckless government spending and deficits.  And yet, a bailout paid for by U.S. taxpayers remains a real possibility.

This week, leaders of the European Union will be meeting to consider aid for Greece. But instead of using their own money to bail out Greece, it’s more likely the EU will adopt Germany’s proposal to use money from the International Monetary Fund. That way U.S. taxpayers – not just the European Union – will be on the hook for an international bailout.

In the meantime, let’s be clear: If President Obama is considering bailing out Greece, American taxpayers need to send him a message. And our message is: “Just Say No.” Who is pulling the strings on this madness?
