Will Susanna and Tommy turn the tide to save Europe?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 11, 2018

fake eyebrows

While the media is busy with the run-up to the show in Singapore, and prior to that the G7 in Canada that saw social media in a flutter over the failure of Justin’s fake eyebrow that came unglued in a presser attacking Trump (yes, apparently the prime minister of Canada augments his eyebrows with bushy black fake ones!), some monumental shift may have occurred in Europe in one week….

Is there still hope to stop the Invasion of Europe?

Here is what I see.

EU trying (in vain?) to get new agreement on migrant redistribution in Europe; fear increase in populism

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 27, 2018

“If we don’t get a deal by the summer we will lose credibility vis-à-vis public opinion and we cannot afford that because it would fuel support for populist and extremist parties across the country.”

(Unnamed diplomat from a frontline country)

 

Politico Europe is reporting that the European Union is working to get in place (by June) a new plan to redistribute migrants from frontline countries, but those frontline countries are not happy.

Invasion of Europe news….

Of course no where is it mentioned that they must first stop the boats arriving from North Africa (European equivalent of BUILD THE WALL)!

Hungary working to build anti-invasion alliance

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 13, 2018

slovenia-dobova

Everyone knows this can’t continue…..

 

More Invasion of Europe news….

In light of recent election results in Austria and Italy, Hungary and Poland are working to build a new coalition that seeks to preserve Western values and Christianity in Europe.

Before I get to that Reuters story, see Patrick Buchanan here who astutely comments on what people are willing to fight for (and I hope and pray he is right!):

Who owns the future? Who will decide the fate of the West?

The problem of the internationalists is that the vision they have on offer—a world of free trade, open borders and global government—are constructs of the mind that do not engage the heart.

Men will fight for family, faith and country.

But how many will lay down their lives for pluralism and diversity? Who will fight and die for the Eurozone and EU?

Now here is Reuters on the latest development from Europe and those who know history and want to save Europe!

BUDAPEST (Reuters) – Hungary aims to coordinate more closely on refugee policy with Austria and Italy after elections there boosted anti-migrant parties, broadening an alliance of EU states focused on internal security.

Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Monday that the approach to migration of the Vienna government and the center-right in Italy was very similar to the bloc’s central European member states.

winged hussars 2

The Poles, the Hungarians and the Austrians are remembering history! And, I bet so are the Muslims!

“So it is obvious that we will work together in the future,” he told Reuters in an interview.

“This is not against the western part of Europe, this is against migration, and this is in favor of our interests because we put security first.”

A bitter row over migration policy sparked by the biggest influx of refugees into the European Union since World War Two has undermined trust within the bloc and weakened its unity, with its eastern states refusing to sign up to a quota system favored by several richer members to the west and north.

In refusing to accept Muslim refugees, Hungary and its neighbors in the Visegrad group – the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia – have cited security concerns and the desire to preserve the traditional Christian make-up of their societies.

Upcoming election—Trump should invite him to White House!

[Hungarian PM Viktor] Orban has been one of the EU’s hardliners on migration and is campaigning on a fierce anti-immigration agenda ahead of Hungary’s own national election on April 8, when he will seek a third term in office.

Austria: Mahmoud took the money and went home!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 14, 2018

They are trying it all over Europe—paying the migrants to go home!

It is something we have advocated here as well.  Believe me, it is cheaper than incarceration and deportation and way cheaper than migrants of all stripes living (for years!) off the generosity of the US taxpayer for food, shelter, education and medical care.

going home

Here is the story from NPR (hat tip: Joanne):

158,000. That’s roughly how many refugees are stuck in limbo in Europe right now.

Many of them got to Europe in late 2015, when the refugee crisis reached its peak, and have been waiting since then to see if they’ll be formally accepted into the European Union.

To cut down on the wait time and economic impact of this massive influx, some countries and nonprofits in Europe have embraced a new idea — pay refugees to go back to the countries they left in the first place.

Mahmoud Abdelwahab is one of the people who has been waiting. He’s 25, and originally from Mosul, Iraq. In early 2016, he quit his job as a cook and came to Europe, ending up in Vienna.

[….]

….the Austrian courts have been overwhelmed by applications. When the migrant crisis reached its peak back in 2015, the number of people wanting to stay in Austria tripled.

Instead of waiting longer, Mahmoud late last year made a tough decision. He decided to leave Austria and go back to Iraq.

“He saw other Iraqi people receiving the negative decision that they have to go back,” Epaid says. “And that’s why he decided for himself to back, before he got a negative.”

That decision — to voluntarily leave the country — is exactly what the Austrian government wants refugees to do.

Last spring, Austria announced that it would give 1,000 euros (roughly $1,219 USD) to the first 1,000 refugees who signed up to leave on their own.

The program was successful, and the government extended the offer to more refugees. It’s an incentive that’s gaining traction across Europe.

[….]

He’s taking the buyout, he says, to go home and use the money to buy a car and become a cab driver.

“Two years … [I] was here for nothing,” Mahmoud says as Epaid translates. “It didn’t make any sense to come here.”

More here.

And, LOL!, if I could run the immigration program (in any country) I would hire Mahmoud for a huge sum of money and have him filmed saying that in public service announcements to be shown all over the Middle East and Africa!

And, for my readers who just want to see them arrested and taken in chains to an airport, I don’t want to hear from you so don’t bother commenting. (Of course there would have to be all sorts rules put in place, like they can’t come back next week.  I know that!)

Heck, if we could pay the supposedly educated DACA kids (the Dreamers!) to go back to their countries of origin they might actually (if they have been educated by the US) help their people and their homelands improve themselves, and the world would be a better place.

Come on President Trump, give it a try.  Offer to pay them to return to where they came from, with maybe a little starter money, and see how many will sign up.  Call the program Dreams from my Father’s Homeland!

There would be a little humorous side benefit for us as we watched the Dems scream bloody murder about wasting taxpayer dollars….

(I’m shutting up! I’m getting carried away!).

Another Jewish refugee program halted; special deal for Iranian minorities grinds to a halt

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 16, 2017

We earlier posted on the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society‘s shuttering of its Chicago office and here we learn that the refugee resettlement function of it Southern California office has been closed.

Senate Transportation Committee Holds Hearing On U.S. Passenger Rail

Senator Frank Lautenberg, a Democrat from New Jersey, served in the US Senate beginning in 1982. He died in 2013. He put into federal law a provision to FAVOR religious minorities from Russia, later expanded to include those from Iran.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_

The program slowdown is informative, but I found the discussion of the Lautenberg Program most interesting.

HIAS has been a big defender and beneficiary of the special deal for Iranian minorities (non-Muslims) who ‘made their way’ to Austria (by whatever means they could) and from there we picked them up as refugees destined for America.

You might be thinking good thoughts about Iranian minorities getting out of that country and that is okay. After all, that is what Donald Trump proposed while campaigning for President—that we should pick those we want to welcome to America.

However, demonstrating the incredible chutzpah of HIAS, is the fact that with Trump’s travel ban and restrictions regarding who is resettled in the US, HIAS lawyers have argued in court that there cannot be a religious test that favors minority religions and excludes Muslims

WTH! They have been backing Lautenberg for years which is exactly that—a religious test for admissions to benefit Jews, Christians and other minorities in Iran and Russia.

They can’t have it both ways!

See e-mail appeals from HIAS demonstrating this mind-numbing hypocrisy! How dare Trump have a religious test benefiting Christians over Muslims from the Middle East they say (while we have had one for decades to benefit Jews!). We should give some kind of hypocrisy award!

Here is KPCC in Southern California:

As of Dec. 1, Jewish Family Service suspended its refugee resettlement program. For decades, the agency has helped resettle refugees from places like Iran, Afghanistan, and the former Soviet Union, all fleeing war, persecution and other crises.

“With the new rules, that pipeline shut down temporarily, and then, more completely,” said Margaret Avineri, who directs the agency’s refugee resettlement program.

[….]

Avineri said her agency typically resettles about 110 refugees a year. This past year, it resettled only 37.

Austria shut down the pipeline:

Many of its cases came through what’s called the Lautenberg program, which assists refugees who are religious minorities, mostly from Iran. They travel from Iran to the United States via Austria, which earlier this year stopped granting the refugees transit visas in light of President Trump’s travel restrictions.

While the agency processed about 100 refugee family applications in the past year, they are still pending approval, Avineri said. That affected the program directly and financially since the agency is funded based on the refugees they resettle, she said. [Well, well, at least they are admitting that refugee bodies=funding.—ed]

“Now that the pipeline has basically dried up, there is no one waiting in Vienna that we have processed. We were unable to continue the services, so we had to suspend the program.”

More here.

For our HIAS archive click here. BTW, it was HIAS that directed the Southern Poverty Law Center to target me resulting in my very special award last year. It is all about attempting to silence critics of mass migration because they are working on changing America by changing the people.

European nationalists meet: European migration policy a daily disaster

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 21, 2017

Invasion of Europe news…..

Obviously timed to follow the Inauguration of Donald Trump, nationalist leaders from five European countries met in Koblenz, Germany today to declare a new day for Europe.

enf-europe

#WeWillMakeOurCountriesGreatAgain (use the hashtag whenever you can!)

 

Representatives from France, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy and Austria declared that a “patriotic spring” was on the horizon for 2017.

From AP (emphasis is mine):

KOBLENZ, Germany — French presidential hopeful Marine Le Pen declared Saturday that 2017 will be the “year of the awakening of the people of continental Europe” as she joined fellow nationalist leaders in Germany at the beginning of a year of high-stakes national elections.

The mood was celebratory a day after Donald Trump was sworn in as U.S. president, following a campaign buoyed by anti-establishment and protectionist themes.

“Yesterday, a new America. Today, hello Koblenz, a new Europe!”

Dutch anti-Islam leader Geert Wilders said as he opened his speech at a congress center on the banks of the Rhine river, under heavy security.

“The people of the west are awakening. They are throwing off the yoke of political correctness,” he said. “This year will be the year of the people … the year of liberation, the year of the patriotic spring.”

Wilders’ anti-Islam Party of Freedom could win the largest percentage of votes in the March 15 Dutch parliamentary election, though it is shunned by rivals and highly unlikely to be able to form a coalition. Le Pen is among top contenders in France’s April-May presidential vote. In September, Frauke Petry’s four-year-old Alternative for Germany party hopes to enter the German parliament.

The meeting of the Europe of Nations and Freedom group in the European Parliament also featured Matteo Salvini of Italy’s Northern League and Harald Vilimsky, the general secretary of Austria’s Freedom Party, which last year narrowly failed to win the country’s presidency.

“We are experiencing the end of one world and the birth of another,” Le Pen said. “We are experiencing the return of nation-states.”

The first “real blow to the old order” was last June’s British vote to leave the European Union, she said — followed closely by Trump’s election. The new U.S. president, she said, “will not support a system of oppression” in Europe.

They must turn the migrant tide back this year, or I can’t see how Europe survives!

Identitare: leading the way to save western civilization in the new Austria

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 30, 2016

We told you two days ago that in the first round of Austria’s presidential elections, for the first time since WWII, the two major parties are out of the running as the so-called far right wins big.

Now check this out at Breitbart (read the whole story) about the gutsy Austrian youths associated with Identitare (they oppose the Islamisation of Europe and mass migration) and their dramatic action getting worldwide media attention.

Watch the film here (the banner says ‘hypocrite’). These young Austrian men were protesting a “Refugees-Welcome” (propaganda!) play at the famous theater and Austrian leaders who say they will protect Austrians from the invaders, but don’t.

Will they make ‘Austria great again?’ (will they be able to SAVE Austria is the question)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 28, 2016

Invasion of Europe news…..

The European political world got a real shake-up a few days ago when the so-called “far-right” won a significant victory in the Presidential contest there.  You’ve surely all read about it —how the “anti-immigrant” forces have been energized and for the first time since WWII neither major Austrian political party will be in the final contest.

What does this portend for Election 2016 if the Obama Administration puts in high gear its massive surge of Syrians to America this summer?  Hmmmm?

From the Express:

Norbert Hofer, the candidate for Austria’s right-wing Freedom Party (FPÖ), won 36.4 per cent of the vote, and will face an independent candidate in the final vote next month.

Glocks for

The Glock family for your family. Austrian Freedom Party candidate Hofer carries one on the campaign trail. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/315392780125799840/

It was the Freedom Party’s best result in a national election and comes after a campaign that focused on the impact of the migrant crisis.

More than 100,000 refugees have arrived in Austria since last summer.

The migrant crisis has divided the country and, in a major U-turn, the government, who initially backed German chancellor Angela Merkel’s open-door policy, shut Austria’s borders.

FPÖ leader Heinz-Christian Strache said: “This is the beginning of a new political era. Today political history is being written in Austria.”

[….]

Pro-gun Hofer, who has been seen carrying his Glock pistol on the campaign trail, has repeatedly criticised the Austrian government’s “soft” handling of the migrant crisis.

Gun ownership has been on the rise in Austria, a trend Hofer has branded a natural reaction to the migrant crisis.

There is much, much more, here (in case there is anyone out there who hasn’t heard this incredible news already!).

Our ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive is here.  And, search RRW for Austria.  I’m running out of time, but you should know that the US State Department processes thousands of refugees in Austria for resettlement to your towns and cities.

Austria joins Hungary in warning of the end of the EU if migrant crisis continues…..

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 25, 2016

…..and there is absolutely no sign of the flow ending (predictions are that it will increase as the spring advances).

Invasion of Europe News!

All along, Austria had appeared to side with the “welcoming” Angela Merkel of Germany, but it looks like that relationship has frayed with Austria and Hungary warning of the death of the EU. (LOL! Worrying about the EU? I’m thinking they better worry about the death of each of their countries and clearly Orban is!)

Viktor Orban

The Donald Trump of Europe, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban: Migrant quota would ‘redraw Europe’s ethnic, cultural and religious identity.’

From the Daily Mail:

Austria warned yesterday that reducing the record influx of migrants was a ‘question of survival’ for the European Union.
Vienna has come under fire from Germany and Greece for imposing daily limits on the number of migrants that can apply for asylum or pass through to other countries.

It hosted a summit yesterday with ministers from nine countries along the west Balkans route used by migrants travelling from Greece towards northern Europe.

‘We have to reduce the influx now. This is a question of survival for the EU,’ Austrian interior minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner said after the talks. Austria believes measures are necessary because the EU has failed to get off the ground any effective common response to the continent’s biggest refugee crisis since 1945.

[….]

Hungary’s prime minister yesterday called a referendum on whether his country would accept an EU plan to share out refugees that he warned would ‘redraw Europe’s ethnic, cultural and religious identity’.

[….]

Mr Orban said yesterday: ‘We cannot make above the heads of people, against the wishes of European people, decisions that seriously change their lives, and the lives of future generations. The quota could redraw Europe’s ethnic, cultural and religious identity. Neither Brussels nor any other European body is authorised to do that.’

Continue reading here.

And be sure to see my favorite interactive map by clicking here.  Note that migrants enter Greece from Turkey and move northward every day and this map does not show those coming across the Mediterranean from North Africa (where Obama and Hillary helped create another failed state—Libya).

Yesterday no migrants entered Austria, but slide the little courser back and you will see how many thousands entered the country earlier this month.

Over 110,000 migrants have entered Europe in 2016 alone, here.  Millions more on the way.

Our lengthy archive on the ‘Invasion of Europe’ is here.  It extends back many years because Europe at one point had plenty of time to stop the boats and safely return them to where they were launched, but leaders lacked the will to send a tough message and now, frankly, it is too late!

Is ‘Refugees Welcome’ partly to blame for American nanny’s murder in Vienna?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 8, 2016

Invasion of Europe news….

You’ve probably heard the news of her murder, but will the mainstream media mention her death was allegedly at the hands of an African asylum seeker?

 

Refugees-welcome

Let’s call them the generation with a death wish! Did these three indirectly play a role in a young woman’s murder by an African ‘asylum seeker’ in Vienna? Learn more about Refugees Welcome here: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/refugees-welcome-airbnb-for-asylum-seekers-started-by-german-couple-spreads-around-the-world-and-the-a6718321.html

 

A young Colorado woman working as a nanny in Austria was found murdered in her apartment last week and an African ‘asylum seeker’ has been arrested in the case.  (This is a different case, although similar, to the American murdered in a similar fashion in Italy).

As European countries have opened their gates to ‘refugees’ from all over the world, it is no wonder that murderers, rapists and thieves have taken advantage of the sheer stupidity of European leaders especially those in Germany and Austria, not to mention the enormous naivete of young ‘humanitarians.’

Here is what Breitbart London said on Saturday.  The murdered young woman was protecting her killer from imminent deportation:

A 24-year-old Gambian ‘asylum seeker’ has been arrested for the murder of an American Au Pair in Austria.

American Lauren M. [her family has revealed her last name, here.—ed] had worked in Vienna, Austria for going on 3 years. The au pair job allowed her to pay for her studies and live in the city.

lauren-m-640x481

25-year-old Lauren Mann of Colorado was found dead in her Vienna apartment last week.

Her dead body was found in her one bedroom apartment in Vienna’s 4th district on the evening of Tuesday January 26 after she had not come in to work that day or contacted any of her friends. Police found her corpse face down in the bedroom of her home.

Krone says initial reports were unclear as to the cause of Lauren’s death but an autopsy later identified that she had been suffocated and so the case was determined to be a homicide.

The hunt for a suspect was helped drastically when police were able to find DNA at the scene which belonged to an asylum seeker already in their database. The 24-year-old Gambian Abdou I. was no stranger to police. In fact the asylum seeker had already been involved on the wrong side of the law and had been accused of sexual misconduct with minors back in 2014.

According to authorities, the Gambian was living at Caritas refugee centre in Erdberg [Caritas Austria, here—ed] and was scheduled to be deported back to his home country in Africa. There was already a warrant out for his arrest at the time of the murder and it is through that Lauren M. had hidden him in her small one bedroom home so that he could escape deportation.

Refugees Welcome!  Come live in our homes!

Breitbart then tells us this:

Lauren M’s actions were possibly inspired by the Refugees Welcome founders Jonas Kakoschke and Mareike Geiling who set up their group as a sort of migrant “airbnb” for migrants to live in their homes and for other volunteers to do the same.

See also Pamela Geller, here, on the murder.  Moral of the story!  Do not take an asylum seeker into your home!

More on Austria:  Did you know that we take hundreds (thousands) of “refugees” from Austria?

Austria is a safe country and there is no reason we should be processing any refugees from there or from Malta either.  I don’t care what the excuse is!  Go here and see that 424 “refugees” came to America from Austria in the first 4 months of FY2016.
