In new age of ‘Aquarius’, Mama Merkel between a rock and a hard place

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 15, 2018

As you can tell, I am fascinated by the sea change in Europe seemingly brought on in less than one week after Italy blocked the landing of a so-called ‘rescue ship’ with more than 600 mostly African men and boys on board.

The ‘Aquarius’ was ultimately “welcomed” by Spain, but that won’t solve the EU migration crisis where frontline countries get the brunt of the invasion unless Socialist Spain wants to keep them and all the future migrants who will surely head that way now.

Mark Steyn astutely pointed out that Angela Merkel, like most European leaders, actually has no children—no personal stake in the future of German culture.   https://www.steynonline.com/7788/leading-by-example

 

For new readers to my ‘Invasion of Europe’ series, German Chancellor Angela Merkel created the recent migrant surge when she began ‘welcoming’ Middle Eastern and African refugees to Germany in 2015.

Germans aren’t producing enough children and she argues that they need young workers who would support old Germans in their dotage.  Yeh right!, sure they will!

Will Susanna and Tommy turn the tide to save Europe?

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.

Germany: Migrant mob attacks police

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 4, 2018

This is when you know you have too many!

When police officers arrived at a center housing migrants in order to remove an African man who had been rejected for asylum, the officers were driven out and forced to release the deportee.

But they came back with reinforcements….

 

German refugee arrest

 

Germans are not happy.

UN Ambassador Haley: Most Syrians just want to go home

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 16, 2018

Clearly The Guardian doesn’t want to hear that bit of information.

Frankly, if there weren’t nine federal refugee contractors being paid on a per refugee head basis to bring refugees to your towns and cities, maybe then a realistic policy could be advanced to care for (legitimate) refugees near their homes so that returning them to their homes and to their familiar cultures would be the number one priority of humanitarian care.

Perhaps if this pattern could be broken now—Middle East wars=flow of migrants to the West—it would be a very important legacy for Trump to leave us with.

Trump and Nikki

Trump and Haley could break the pattern! No more knee jerk admission of ‘refugees’ with every Middle East conflict.

Here Nikki Haley says what the No Borders Left never wants to hear:

Donald Trump’s ambassador to the United Nations on Sunday defended the president’s ban on allowing Syrian refugees into the US by claiming that people displaced due to the country’s civil war did not actually want to leave the region.

When asked how she justified the Trump administration admitting almost no Syrian refugees while also bombing Assad regime targets in the country, Nikki Haley cited conversations she said she had had with refugees at camps in Jordan and Turkey.

“Not one of the many that I talked to ever said we want to go to America,” Haley said on Fox News Sunday. “They want to stay as close to Syria as they can.”

More here.

In a related story at Hurriyet we see that the bloom is off the rose as Germany begins restricting family members (limiting chain migration!):

Syrians leaving Germany to return to Turkey

A growing number of Syrian refugees in Germany are seeking to return to Turkey as a new German legislation has introduced new barriers to family reunification, local media reported on April 12.

Merkel gloomy with migrants

Even Mama Merkel is beginning to understand limits.

The German government recently imposed stricter measures to curb family reunification for Syrian refugees, many of whom were granted “subsidiary protection.”

German broadcaster ARD reported that its correspondents documented the journey of several Syrian refugees who sought to return to Turkey by paying hundreds of euros to human smugglers.

The refugees wanted to return to Turkey because they could not receive permission from German authorities to bring their family members who had fled to Turkey after the Syrian civil war broke out, the report said.

The EU’s largest economy has accepted more than 700,000 Syrian refugees since 2015, but amid domestic political pressure, Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition government introduced barriers to family reunification. A cap of 1,000 people per month was imposed on who could come to Germany for family reunification.

Family reunification (chain migration) is bugaboo for new German government

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 8, 2018

Invasion of Europe news….

German special forces cropped

Members of German Special Forces in Muenster yesterday. Still no official report on the deadly attack.  https://www.standard.co.uk/news/world/muenster-attack-several-dead-after-car-drives-into-crowd-in-germany-a3808266.html

I bet Japan Times is eager to show the citizens of Japan what a mess one’s country becomes when the migrant tide is invited in!

From Japan Times:

BERLIN – A scuffle over immigration has marred the first weeks in office of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s fourth coalition, promising anything but smooth sailing in the years ahead for the loveless left-right alliance.

Conservatives among Merkel’s Christian Democrats are keen to restrict as heavily as possible so-called family reunifications that would allow some of the million-plus migrants and refugees who have arrived since 2015 to bring in relatives.

That has stirred the ire of Social Democrats (SPD), the reluctant junior partners who helped Merkel into office to end the longest period of post-election limbo in post-World War II German history.

 

A thousand a month!

GERMANY-EUROPE-MIGRANTS

Chancellor Merkel and Interior Minister Seehofer

 

Japan Times continues…..

In their painstakingly negotiated coalition deal, the parties agreed that up to 1,000 people per month could enter Germany under family reunification, with only immediate relatives eligible.

New Interior Minister Horst Seehofer is eager to tighten the screws further, with a draft law that would prevent people dependent on social benefits from bringing in family members and further restrict which relations are eligible, including ruling out siblings.  

Now that is an idea!  The US should be doing that too! If the family already here is on welfare, they can’t bring other family members over.  Gee, I bet that is already a law we don’t follow!

Many people who arrived in Germany as refugees are yet to join the labor market, undergoing job training or language classes, and would therefore not qualify.

Seehofer is a former leader of the ultra-conservative CSU, the smaller Bavarian sister party of Merkel’s more centrist CDU.

[….]

“If the Social Democrats don’t cooperate, the ‘grand coalition’ would be over” less than a month after Merkel was sworn in, deputy leader of the conservative parliamentary group Georg Nuesslein told the Augsburger Allgemeine newspaper.

The family reunification row is just one front in a broader battle over immigration, integration and Islam in German society that has pitted the SPD against the CDU/CSU.

Seehofer is also keen to speed up expulsions of people whose asylum applications are refused, many of whom spend months or years contesting the decisions in the courts or acquire a “tolerated” residence status.

The twin issues of asylum abuse and family reunification are also key elements in the US debate over our southern border.

Can’t lose with the issue of more law and order!

Health Minister Jens Spahn, a rising star of the CDU’s right wing seen as a potential future candidate for the chancellorship, has spent his first weeks in office giving interviews urging more “law and order” in troubled city districts.

Continue reading the story at Japan Times, here.

Japanese readers must be asking:  Why would any sane government act to destroy its own country and culture?

German ‘model’ detention center is former US Army base

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 2, 2018

Invasion of Europe news…

German officials are looking at replicating the facility in Bavaria throughout the country so that asylum seekers are pretty much contained in one fenced facility while they wait for a decision about whether they will be deported or not.

 

Screenshot (341)

 

From Deutsche Welle:

In Bavaria, one model “reception center” is home to more than 1,300 asylum-seekers. Directors say the barbed-wire enclosure and lack of privacy are for “safety” and efficiency. One resident says “it’s a wasted life.”

Is this what the future of asylum management will look like in Germany?

On the outskirts of the romantic UNESCO World Heritage city of Bamberg in Bavaria, one passes through an unforgiving security checkpoint manned by tough guards to enter into a facility lined with barbed wire. This was once a US army base, complete with cinema, supermarket and disco.

Since July 2016 the long, light-colored barracks have served as refugee housing. The streets are named after types of trees. During my visit in December, a thin man in a track suit stood at a roundabout and waved: “I tell you the truth!” he yelled to me. There are guards everywhere. Welcome to the Upper Franconia Reception Center.

[….]

The way the government sees things, the Upper Franconia Reception Center provides refugees with everything they need. They can even receive text notifications about the status of their asylum applications, which they submit at the facility, on their cellphones.

[….]

The Federal Administrative Court has an office here, as does the region’s immigration agency. The welfare agency is in Block E. This is all “state of the art” in Krug’s eyes: “If the government decides to put refugees into centralized accommodations, then our facility is definitely a good model.”

Controversial proposal by interior minister

GERMANY-EUROPE-MIGRANTS

Angela Merkel and Horst Seehofer

 

Deutsche Welle continues….

That is exactly the plan advocated by Horst Seehofer, the interior minister in the new federal government and a member of Bavaria’s conservative Christian Social Union (CSU). He has presented plans to open “anchor centers” to house asylum applicants from their arrival in Germany until their requests are granted or they are deported.

And the first one may well be built in Bavaria. The centers that Seehofer proposes are intended to provide efficiency, as well as maximum control over the people who come to Germany hoping to find more sustainable living conditions.

Seehofer has for years presented a hard line on immigration and frequently come into conflict with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

[….]

Whether the Bamberg model will be replicated elsewhere remains to be seen.

There is much more and definitely worth reading.

If the German government put out word throughout Africa and the Middle East that all migrants flooding in to Germany would be housed in large facilities it would surely act as a deterrent to many others trying to get to ‘welcoming’ Europe.

And, hey, couldn’t the US run more detention centers—a kind of one stop shop until asylum decisions are made.  Expensive? Probably, but better than just releasing so many to their supposed relatives and expecting them to show up for their asylum court date.

German Chancellor Merkel still insists Islam belongs in Germany

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 23, 2018

And, she continues to defend her decision to admit a million or so, mostly fake, refugees to the country.  I hope the historians of Western Civilization out there are writing this down (especially since it will be Muslim historians writing in the next century if this keeps up).

Invasion of Europe news…..

From Quartz:

Merkel insists Islam is part of Germany in the first speech of her new term

She’s been chancellor of Germany for 12 years, reduced to a caretaker for the past six months until she could form a new government. Today (March 21), Angela Merkel gave the first speech of her latest term to parliament, addressing the controversial topic of migrants and their place in German society.

 

GERMANY-EUROPE-MIGRANTS

Merkel v. Seehofer:  What will historians say about them?

 

The chancellor directly contradicted her new interior minister—an old foe when it comes to the topic of refugees—Horst Seehofer, leader of the Christian Social Union. Seehofer sparked a furor last week when he told the Bild newspaper that “Islam does not belong in Germany.”

“There is no question that our country is historically Christian and Jewish,” Merkel said.“It is also true that Islam has in the meanwhile become part of Germany.” She acknowledged, however, that some Germans find that hard to accept.

[….]

Merkel said the atmosphere in Germany had become “polarized,” and the refugee crisis of recent years had challenged the country “in an unprecedented way.” She noted that Turkish and Italian immigrants had played a vital role in the rebuilding of post-war Germany and that their families were part of mainstream life.

About 4.5 million Muslims live in Germany, and the majority rejects radicalism, the chancellor said.

Unusually for Merkel, she admitted that in retrospect, her initial hope that the chaos of the war in Syria wouldn’t harm Germany was naïve. It soon became clear that the country wasn’t prepared for an influx of displaced people, she said, describing the taking in of more than a million refugees was a necessary “humanitarian exception.”

Atlantic writer knows refugees are lying and so do those charged with admitting them….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 20, 2018

….but we continue to admit them anyway—to America and to Europe.

Graeme wood

Photo: Wood at Yale. He wanted a refugee to clean his house so he called the local resettlement agency (probably in New Haven!).  http://yale.academia.edu/GraemeWood

Thanks to reader Paul for sending this unnecessarily long article in the April issue of The Atlantic by author Graeme Wood.

I don’t know why it takes so many words to confirm that yes, many lie, that this is an invasion, that the at-once diabolical and gullible Lefties are driving it, and so what if Germany is now seriously screening the migrants. Is that comforting to know?

No!

It is too late for dear Deutschland!

That said, I do hope our US screening process is beefing up as Wood tells us the Germans are.

My question for Germany is this:

So you find out they are lying, do you now have the spine to put them on planes back to the Middle East and Africa (I doubt it!)?

Graeme Wood at The Atlantic:

(Emphasis is mine)

Three years ago [at the height of the Obama Administration—ed], overcome by the squalor of my home, I decided to hire a cleaner. I scanned Craigslist, feeling a prick of guilt; few things arouse class angst as reliably as the purchase of domestic help. Then I remembered another option. Near my Connecticut home was a refugee-resettlement center. On weekdays, dozens of recent arrivals loitered there, eager for work. This seemed to offer a solution to both my squalor and my angst. To pay a Craigslist gig worker felt a little icky. To pay a refugee—well, that felt magnanimous, almost patriotic. [Clearly Graeme wasn’t reading RRW!—ed]

I wrote to the resettlement center, which sent me a stack of résumés. Even the ones from Congolese herders were well formatted and in English—the result, surely, of polishing by the center’s staff. The stories, I found, made propulsive reading, despite the outline form. I was tempted to request more résumés for the understated drama alone. Each was the timeline of a life interrupted in a distant, volatile land and now picked up, improbably, in a snowy New England town.

The other trait distinguishing these résumés was that nearly every one contained what I, as someone whose job often involves listening skeptically to people’s stories, would call irregularities, little details that seemed odd, that begged for explanation.

An Afghan with no formal education claimed to know a language not spoken in any country she had visited; an African doctor whose CV could have gotten him a job with the World Health Organization in a week was working a cash register in Bridgeport. Two refugees claimed to be from, respectively, Zambia and Tanzania, countries without war or persecution that could justify asylum. (The refugees had almost certainly claimed different nationalities in their application for asylum.) Another said she was from the Democratic Republic of the Congo—a major generator of refugees—but spoke languages that suggested origin in the now relatively safe country of Rwanda. It was as if the center had sent me a dozen jigsaw puzzles, all with either missing pieces or extra ones.

All of the refugees were qualified to clean my house. (The doctor was overqualified, and I wondered whether I should be cleaning his.) But detail after detail hoisted my eyebrows. An asylum officer had heard each story—or some variant of it—and judged the claimant credible enough to welcome him into the United States. For my part, it was hard not to conclude that most of the stories were shot through with lies.

It is not clear if Wood ever hired any of them.

Mr. Wood moves on to discuss Germany…..

The new migrants tend to be young and male, and therefore at times unruly, and the far right has stoked fear of swarthy men’s lust for European women. But accompanying the xenophobia are worrisome facts. Two years after the peak of the influx, more than 80 percent of refugees were jobless, in a general population whose unemployment rate is 5.5 percent. Successful integration is not assured. [Why is it xenophobic to point out the problems? That is what is wrong with writers like Mr. Wood. Can’t they just admit that maybe he and his Leftwing open borders pals are wrong without the virtue-signalling!—ed]

LOL! But at least history is not a stranger to him….

For those worried about the erosion of German culture, it was evidence that the Muslim world, having failed to sack Vienna in 1683, is now coming back in a bum-rush.

He could have quit right there.

More here if you have an hour.

Germans (Brits, French, etc.) are systematically being replaced.  It is an invasion.  It isn’t first and foremost about economic migrants vs. real refugees and how government authorities can tell one from the other.

That is what Austrian Martin Sellner tried to tell the good citizens of the UK a couple of days ago.

It is about the Hijra—-the Islamic doctrine of conquest via migration!

Mr. Wood goes on to laboriously describe how Germany is now trying to throw off the invasion fears with a typically German bureaucratic paper-pushing vetting process which I hope is being employed at our Department of Homeland Security because it is still not too late for us!

Bannon storms Europe: Let them call you racist!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 11, 2018

Steve Bannon, Trump’s right hand man during the run-up to Trump’s upset victory in the US presidential race in 2016, is traveling around Europe spreading a populist message  painfully aware that Europe is in deep trouble and if globalist-instigated migration to the continent continues, Western Civilization itself will be in danger of collapsing in this century.

That reminds me, I recently watched the excellent documentary film, ‘The Fight of Our Lives.  You can order it here (or attend a showing near you).  Using interviews with some very smart people, it lays out the threat from without and the threat from within to our western way of life.  Needless to say, the invasion of Europe is a big part of the film.

 

 

Invasion of Europe news….

Here is Mother Jones report on Bannon’s European tour:

Steve Bannon to French Far-Right: “Let Them Call You Racist…Wear It as a Badge of Honor”

Former White House strategist and Trump whisperer Steve Bannon has a message for members of France’s far-right, xenophobic National Front party. “Let them call you racist,” he told the crowd at the party’s congress in Lille on Saturday. “Let them call you xenophobes. Let them call you nativists. Wear it as a badge of honor. Because every day, we get stronger and they get weaker.”

 

Bannon and Le Pen

Bannon: History is on our side with Marine Le Pen   https://www.usnews.com/news/world/articles/2018-03-10/france-le-pen-set-to-field-new-name-for-far-right-party

 

Mother Jones continues….

Bannon, who was swept out of the White House after unflattering quotes of his appeared in Michael Wolfe’s book Fire and Fury, is currently traveling Europe and whipping up support for various nationalist and anti-immigrant parties. “They see what Breitbart did and they want it in their own language,” he told the New York Times, referring to the right-wing site he left in January. “That’s the key. Right now my sites are in English. They want one in their own language.”

He told the Times that he had a “fascinating” meeting earlier this week with the leaders of the hardline Alternative for Germany party. The AfD, now the third-largest party in Germany, is hostile toward immigrants and Muslims, arguing for stricter immigration controls and bans on minarets and niqabs. Not long ago, two AfD officials responded to a public service announcement by German police that ran in Arabic as well as German by tweeting, “Are they seeking to appease the barbaric, Muslim, rapist hordes of men?”

The Times also reported that Bannon might meet with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, an autocratic figure who has cracked down on his country’s media, judiciary, and electoral system. Blocking immigrants from entering Hungary is arguably Orbán’s signature issue. Bannon, who declined to say whether he was meeting with the Hungarian leader, called him a “hero” and “the most significant guy on the scene right now.”

And Bannon has embedded himself in Italian politics, lending a hand to the populist forces now on the rise in that country.

In France, Bannon reportedly met with the National Front’s leader, Marine Le Pen, who was defeated in last year’s presidential election by centrist Emmanuel Macron.

More here.

Bannon is exactly right on the “racist” name-calling! Take away the power of the word by laughing at them!  Humor is the most powerful political weapon (Saul Alinsky).

I’ve said often that we should have a gala every year to celebrate all those that the Southern Poverty Law Center has labeled as racists.

(I don’t mean to brag about my honors, it would just be a fun gathering that would also send a powerful message because it would end, once and for all, the SPLC’s power with the media.)

Germany: Palestinian jihadist sentenced to life in prison for deadly knife attack

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 2, 2018

Invasion of Europe news….

He was a failed asylum seeker who said he understood the Koran and therefore needed to go out and kill Christians.

From AFP via Malay Mail Online:

HAMBURG, March 1 — A Palestinian jihadist who killed one man and wounded six other people in a German supermarket knife rampage last year was sentenced today to life in prison.

FILES-GERMANY-JUSTICE-TRIAL-ATTACK

What a wonderful asset this wannabe refugee was for Germany. Now German taxpayers get to pay for his life in prison.

Ahmad Alhaw, 27, had admitted to the murder and assaults in the river port city of Hamburg.

In delivering the sentence, the judge noted the “particular severity” of the crime, lowering Alhaw’s chances of obtaining early release on parole.

Prosecutors had said the attack stemmed from a “radical Islamist” motive, charging that the man had hoped “he would die as a martyr”.

His aim was to kill as many German Christians as possible to avenge the suffering of Muslims worldwide, they said.

[….]

The defendant entered a supermarket on July 28 last year, snatched a 20-centimetre (eight-inch) knife from the shelves, unwrapped it and fatally stabbed a 50-year-old man.

As panic broke out, he slashed and stabbed at others inside and then outside the shop, shouting “Allahu Akbar” (God is greatest), and also wounding a 50-year-old woman and four men.

[….]

The Islamist attack was Germany’s first since December 2016 when Tunisian Anis Amri ploughed a stolen truck through a Berlin Christmas market in an attack that claimed 12 lives.

The knife rampage led to charges that security services had been too complacent in keeping an eye on Alhaw despite multiple warnings that he was radicalising.

It also fuelled growing xenophobia against Muslim migrants after the mass influx of more than one million asylum seekers since mid-2015.

Witnesses told the court they had seen the failed asylum seeker self-radicalise in the lead-up to the attack.

[….]

….Alhaw, who had watched IS propaganda videos online, grew deeply religious and increasingly distrustful of state authorities.

By 2016 he thought that he suddenly understood the Koran completely, rejected all previous temptations, and started looking at all other people as either true believers or non-believers, the psychiatrist said.
