Hungary joins US, gets out of UN Migration compact

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 19, 2018

No mention in UN compact of  “fundamental human rights of people who want nothing else than to be able to live in peace and security in their own homelands.”

(Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Peter Szijjarto)

 

Good for Hungary! Let’s hope other countries join them and the US in bailing out of the pact, whose work began at that Obama-led UN pow-wow in the fall of 2016.

From the New York Times:

Hungary Pulls Out of U.N. Global Migration Agreement

Hungary pulled out of a United Nations global agreement on migration on Wednesday, citing security concerns, just days after the accord was reached.

Trump and Orban

Come on Donald, what are you waiting for, invite Prime Minister Orban to Washington!   https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2018/07/17/soulmates-israels-netanyahu-and-hungarys-orban-meet-today-in-israel/

Peter Szijjarto, Hungary’s minister of foreign affairs and trade, announced the withdrawal at a news conference in Budapest, Hungary’s capital, saying the agreement was “in conflict with common sense and also with the intent to restore European security.”

Hungary joined the United States as one of two United Nations members that are not committing to the agreement, the first of its kind to lay out international standards for countries to address migration. The agreement — the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration — was announced on Friday.

United Nations officials say the accord is intended to preserve the human rights of all migrants by offering a framework for national governments devising their own policies on migration.

Hungary, which has long called for stricter policies on European migration, had expressed concerns over the agreement during negotiations. Mr. Szijjarto said the accord did not address the “fundamental human rights of people who want nothing else than to be able to live in peace and security in their own homelands.”

It is about global cooperation, yeh sure!

The compact itself was driven in part by the 2015 crisis that saw European nations struggle to cope with large numbers of migrants entering the Continent. While the number of new arrivals has dropped significantly, the debate about migration has grown heated in Europe. The rise of anti-immigration, populist governments in Italy, Austria and Hungary has added fuel to the debate.

Amina J. Mohammed, the United Nations deputy secretary general, speaking after the agreement was announced on Friday, said the compact was intended to foster global collaboration.

[….]

The agreement is expected to be formally adopted in December during a conference in Marrakesh, Morocco.

More here.

The last thing the UN wants is more governments standing up for their national sovereignty, for their own people!

Saying America First! Hungary First! is like waving a red cape before a bull!  And, I suspect that Trump’s America First message is at the root of why the Left and the media hate him so much.

“Soulmates”: Israel’s Netanyahu and Hungary’s Orban meet tomorrow in Israel

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 17, 2018

Here is an idea for Donald Trump today (the master at making Leftwing media heads explode).

Just as everyone is going crazy over Trump’s summit with Putin, he could invite Hungarian PM Viktor Orban and Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu to the White House to discuss big beautiful border walls!

 

orban and Netanyahu

Haaretz calls them “soulmates.” Last year France 24 called them “spiritual brothers.”   http://www.france24.com/en/20170718-spiritual-brothers-netanyahu-orban-meet-budapest

 

I can dream, can’t I!

 

israeli border wall

Israel’s border wall with Egypt

 

Today Orban will be in Israel meeting with Netanyahu and the far Left publication Haaretz gives us an idea of the magnitude of the media meltdown the US press would have if an Orban/Netanyahu/Trump event was scheduled!

Update: Italy allows some of the latest migrants off the ships in Sicily

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 16, 2018

Relocating the migrants would “lead down the road to hell!”

(Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis)

 

Invasion of Europe news….

This is an update of yesterday’s post about Italy telling other EU countries that they needed to step-up and take in 50 each of the 450 African and Middle Eastern migrants rescued by two Frontex vessels over the weekend.

 

Italy rescue ship

The next generation! “New Europeans” carried ashore in Siccily

 

So far now, five countries have agreed to take 50 each (mostly men): Germany, France, Malta, Spain and Portugal.  So who will get the remaining 200?

Lastest migrant ships stopped by Italy, Italian PM calls on other EU countries to take them

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 15, 2018

Invasion of Europe news…..

He is calling their bluff!

Other European countries agreed just recently to share the burden with an invasion weary Italy, let’s see how many keep their word.

Italian Coast Guard ship Diciotti with migrants arrives in Trapani

Some of the latest batch of African men ‘rescued’ at sea.

So far Germany, France and Malta have agreed to 50 each which means 300 (of the original 450) are still in limbo.

I was looking for any mention of where the 450 are at right now.

Let me know if you see that important bit of information.

From The Local:

France, Germany, Malta will take 50 rescued migrants each: Italian PM

Trump to Europeans: You are losing your culture!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 13, 2018

I was telling a reporter just yesterday that perhaps one of Donald Trump’s greatest gifts to us is that, with his penchant for speaking his mind, he gives us permission to say what we believe in our hearts, but may fear saying.

So here he is in the UK speaking frankly to The Sun, as reported by The Hill:

 

Trump: Europe is ‘losing its culture’ because of immigration

President Trump is railing against what he described as the migration of “millions and millions of people” into Europe, declaring that the continent is “losing its culture” to refugees and asylum seekers from the Middle East and Africa.

In an interview with the British tabloid The Sun published Thursday, Trump said that it is a “shame” that European leaders had allowed so many migrants to enter their countries’ borders.

President Donald Trump speaks at a rally in Great Falls, Mont.

“Allowing the immigration to take place in Europe is a shame,” the U.S. president told the tabloid, which his owned by conservative media mogul Rupert Murdoch.

I think it changed the fabric of Europe and, unless you act very quickly, it’s never going to be what it was and I don’t mean that in a positive way,” he continued.

Trump’s publicized comments came shortly after he arrived in the U.K. for a long-awaited trip on the heels of a tense set of meetings at the annual NATO summit in Brussels, where he delivered a blistering criticism of European allies and demanded that member nations pay more for defense.

The president’s comments during his interview with The Sun, however, highlighted Trump’s deeply held skepticism of immigration and resurfaced a line of attack that he had used often on the campaign trail – that Europe was being overrun by non-Europeans and was quickly becoming a shell of what it once was.

“I think you are losing your culture,” he told the tabloid….

The Hill reporter goes on to say, but, but, but, the numbers coming in have slowed.

I have seen that talking point everywhere. So, even if the numbers of migrants have diminished somewhat in the last two years, the damage was done when hundreds of thousands of Africans and Middle Easterners previously got in and are still there roaming around Europe!

See my ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive (which I have been adding to for years) by clicking here.

Endnote: As regular readers know, I watch CNN for a bit every morning to learn what has their panties-in-a-wad each day, and boy were they freaking out about The Sun interview, but not one word about this part of the interview—-the immigration/cultural destruction comments!

The titans face off in Berlin (Orban vs. Merkel)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 7, 2018

Invasion of Europe news…..

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban traveled to Germany this week for a pow-wow with Angela (Mama) Merkel over, what else, migrants.

 

orban and merkel

Hey, Mr. President, you have had Merkel to the White House, it is now time to invite Orban. Ask him how well his border fence is working and watch media heads explode!

 

Here (below) is just one of many accounts of what happened.

Sheffield, England: Somali mayor bans Donald Trump from the city

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 6, 2018

Frankly, I don’t know why President Trump is even going to the UK next week.

But, my first thoughts, when I saw this story about the Lord Mayor of Sheffield telling Trump he is not welcome in his city, were……

Sheffield mayor

So this is how Somalis behave when they get some power?

So this is how Somalis behave when they get in positions of some authority?

Does Magid Magid really expect us to take him seriously as a political leader?

And, is this type of behavior why they couldn’t keep Somalia from becoming a hellhole?

From Newshub:

Sheffield’s Lord Mayor Magid Magid bans Donald Trump from visiting the city

 

The popular Lord Mayor of an English city has banned Donald Trump ahead of the US President’s visit to the UK on July 13.

Germany: Mama Merkel survives for now, but significantly weakened

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 3, 2018

“Under her continued leadership, Germany will be largely immobilized at home and in Europe.”

(Thomas Kleine-Brockhoff, director of the Berlin office of the German Marshall Fund)

 

To save herself (HER government) she agreed to border controls for Germany. 

Details are “sketchy,” but she agreed to the creation of transit centers at Germany’s borders to detain incoming migrants.

The migrants will be sorted and those who applied for asylum elsewhere in Europe will be returned to that country. The others??? Will they be deported immediately? Or, is Germany in for many years of housing migrants in camps?

 

Merkel we love you

Will the migrants love her now?

 

This New York Times story on what happened yesterday isn’t bad considering the source and makes the point near the end that Donald Trump is also putting pressure on Germany to pay-up for their NATO defense protection, or else.  The ‘or else’ could be the removal of more of our military from the German state where we have tens of thousands of American servicemen stationed.

When President Trump goes to the NATO summit in a week, he will be meeting a very much weakened German chancellor.

Agreeing to any sort of border controls is a BFD!  One of the founding principles in the creation of the European Union was the idea of free movement of people between its participating countries and Angela Merkel was a leading proponent of that policy.

From the New York Times:

Merkel, to Survive, Agrees to Border Camps for Migrants

 

BERLIN — Chancellor Angela Merkel, who staked her legacy on welcoming hundreds of thousands of migrants into Germany, agreed on Monday to build border camps for asylum seekers and to tighten the border with Austria in a political deal to save her government.

It was a spectacular turnabout for a leader who has been seen as the standard-bearer of the liberal European order but who has come under intense pressure at home from the far right and from conservatives in her governing coalition over her migration policy.

Although the move to appease the conservatives exposed her growing political weakness, Ms. Merkel will limp on as chancellor. For how long is unclear. The nationalism and anti-migrant sentiment that has challenged multilateralism elsewhere in Europe is taking root — fast — in mainstream German politics.

Ms. Merkel agreed to the latest policy after an insurrection over migration policy led by her interior minister, Horst Seehofer, threatened to bring down her coalition.

Mr. Seehofer demanded that Germany block migrants at the border if they have no papers, or have already registered in another European country.

Ms. Merkel, who supports free movement across Europe’s borders, has been opposed to any moves effectively resurrecting border controls until Monday night, when she made the deal to stay in power.

[….]

It would establish camps, called “transit centers,” at points along the border. Newly arriving migrants would be screened in the centers, and any determined to have already applied for asylum elsewhere in the European Union would be turned back.

Turning them back to the countries where they first arrived is going to cause even more tension between Germany and its neighbors. But, not mentioned here is what about all those who have no legitimate right to asylum, are they going to ship them right back to Africa or the Middle East?

Merkel in the breach—holding back the rise of the right!

Maria-Ladenburger-Hussein-Khavari-743317

The New York Times story briefly refers to the rape and murder of Maria, a German student, by an Afghan asylum seeker as the beginning of the change in attitude of the German public about Merkel’s welcome to migrants in 2015.

Under Ms. Merkel, Germany has been a bulwark against the rise of the far right in Europe and the increasing turn against migrants. Even as neighboring countries turned away those fleeing war and strife in the Middle East, she has welcomed more than a million since 2015, and lobbied for a collective European solution.

[….]

Anti-migrant feelings helped lead to the rise of a far-right political party, the Alternative for Germany, or AfD, which has put Germany’s more mainstream parties under pressure to change.

Ms. Merkel has been unable to stem the changing tide, with cascading implications for politics in Germany and Europe.

Much more here.

President Trump should find her less cocky (than he found her in Canada at the recent G7 meeting) when he gets to the NATO summit next week in Brussels.

LOL!  Maybe they can share notes on detention centers!  Will German’s separate the children for instance?

Merkel’s government on brink of COLLAPSE blares headline

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 2, 2018

Remember the famous line from the Clintonistas: It’s the economy stupid!  No, it is immigration stupid! It is the issue of our lifetime, of the century and beyond.

 

Screenshot (562)

Merkel lectured Trump in Canada last month. Sit down Angela!

 

We’ve been reporting on the trouble for the “world’s most powerful woman” for sometime. It is the trouble she brought on herself by opening Germany’s gates to more than a million invaders three years ago and thus creating a magnet for more illegal aliens who necessarily must travel through other countries to reach Merkel’s nirvana.

Merkel’s folly might now (finally) be due for a reckoning and hopefully will serve as a powerful lesson to all political leaders who have a hankering to invite the masses in to a first world country. Invite them and they will come.

Highly anticipated EU “deal” on migration is a nothing-burger!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 29, 2018

Because I’ve been telling you in advance about the pow-wow in Brussels yesterday about the migrant invasion of Europe and what the EU will do about it, I’m compelled to give you an update of the disappointing results.

They talked and talked, indeed they talked all night, and came up with what the NY Times even says is a ‘deal’ with “sketchy” details.

 

Aquarious cargo

Migrants on the “Aquarius” turned away by Italy precipitating the EU’s latest migration crisis TALKS.

 

The UK Express says it all in its headline:

EU Summit FUDGE: Merkel STILL not safe as vague immigration deal DOESN’T solve issues
