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.

Green Energy causing massive energy shortage during Europe’s Winter

Perhaps we can learn a few lessons from Europe and not repeat several of their disastrous decisions. Refugees being one, and how about ensuring enough energy is available to keep everyone toasty. Add the fact they are paying over twice as much as we do, I say, let’s use common sense on this issue. Here tis:

windsnow

Over-reliance on green energy and freezing winter weather triggered serious power shortages across Europe.

European Union nations, including Greece and Hungary, hoarded power due to the cold winter weather. That hoarding triggered shortages that cut off electricity to tens of thousands of homes and sent power prices soaring to record levels.

Temperatures across southern Europe are expected to drop below freezing again next week. The continent has been unable to meet electricity demand, as green energy tends to go offline in the cold. Solar power, for example, tends to produce less energy in the winter because the days are shorter.

Europe has increasingly invested in green energy in recent years, which has created big problems preventing blackouts during the winter.

The average European spent 26.9 cents per kilowatt-hour on electricity during the last full year of data, while the average American only spent 10.4 cents, according to an analysis of government data previously published by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Even EU nations where power is relatively cheap pay a lot more for power than any U.S. state. Great Britain, for example, pays an average of 54 percent more for electricity than Americans paid last year. Much of the expense comes from subsidies for green energy, which account for roughly 7 percent of British energy bills, according to government study released last July.

U.S. takes on more Syrian refugees than all of the E.U. 8,000 vs 6,000

This morning we wake to this headline Obama Administration Releases 15 Guantanamo Detainees In Largest Transfer Of Presidency. The worst of the worse. But let’s not stop there with this administration. Let’s tool up so we can bring in more “refugees” of unknown backgrounds and play more Russian roulette. While the E.U. is slowly waking from their somnolence and slowing down their self-immolation, Obama and Clinton are hell-bent at putting us at risk. Here we go:

Despite promises of European Union member states to take in 160,000 refugees, a new report shows that they’ve accepted a fraction, 6,000, while the United States has embraced 8,000 of a planned 10,000 this year.

As President Obama, backed by Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, has ramped up accepting refugees fleeing Syria and other war-torn nations, the EU has put the brakes on hard, apparently bowing to public outrage.

After officials moved to stem the huge influx if immigrants, Europe had led the way in making promises to accept the additional refugees in camps in Italy and Greece. But a new report in France found that Paris had accepted just 1,300 of the 30,000 it promised to take from Greece and Italy by 2017.

‘There is an obvious lack of solidarity,’ Henry claimed,” said the CIS blog post from Nayla Rush based on some French media reports.

CIS suggested that the EU refusal to move as fast as Obama might be a “sign of mere common sense,” following a number of terror attacks. H/T:Washington Examiner

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

To be honest I have paid little attention to the nature of the governance of the European Union. So just who are these so-called “officials?” Never mind, what they have in mind will totally destroy Europe and spread the migrant horde throughout Europe. Those few countries that have held firm in denying access will succumb to the weight of a $300,000 fine per “refugee” they deny. A corrective fairness mechanism will be implemented? Here goes:

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.”

The United Kingdom has the option to opt out of the new program.

The Guardian reported:

Under the latest plans, E.U. countries would still be responsible for housing refugees that arrive on their territory, preserving a key principle of existing asylum rules known as the Dublin regulation. Unlike under Dublin, refugees could be dispersed around the EU via a “corrective fairness mechanism” in the event that countries that are the first arrival point are unable to cope.

The penalties are intended to incentivize nations to abide by the currently failed migrant quotas.

Eastern European nations, including Poland and Hungary, would likely accept the new changes, the recommended fines would be a hard-hit to their economies, according to the Financial Times.

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.

EU Court Says Finland Cannot Make ‘Cognac’

Mark one up for the European Union Court. Obama would just love them implement a world court, us included. I get it. Champagne needs to come from a certain region. But just follow the detail of this gem.

You can’t make cognac in Finland. No how, no way.

The EU’s Court of Justice ruled Thursday that a Finnish company called Gust. Ranin Oy cannot use the word “cognac” and its Finnish translation, “konjakki,” on its spirits because that would mislead consumers.

Making true cognac is no simple thing. Only certain grapes can be used. A traditional still must be used. Distillation must be complete by March 31 following the harvest. It must be aged in casks made of particular types of oak, and only in facilities licensed by the Bureau National Interprofessionel du Cognac — the winner in this court case.

But geography trumps all: If it’s not made from a defined area around the western French town of Cognac, it cannot use that name..
