    The migration spokesman for the Greens in the European Union (EU) Parliament has called for Brussels to resettle “whole villages” of migrants in Eastern Europe. Vice-President of the Greens-European Free Alliance group, Ska Keller, told the Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung that it is essential the EU implement a “solidarity distribution” system because migrants should be spread throughout Europe. Noting how a large proportion of the migrants resettled in Baltic states like Lithuania quickly left to seek higher welfare payments in countries like Germany, the Green MEP said Brussels should send migrants to Eastern Europe in much greater numbers. Keller suggested the...
  • ‘We will respond’ EU prepares to STRIKE BACK as Trump’s steel war hits bloc ‘very hard’

    US President Donald Trump ordered an investigation into curbing steel imports amid “national security” fears in April. Washington is expected to decide whether to impose tariffs this week. The investigation has mainly been aimed at cheap imports from China but has sparked concern from European steel exporters who worry they will be targeted by the US crackdown. The EU’s trade commissioner Cecilia Malmström says Brussels “will need to respond” if Mr Trump decides to impose tariffs on steel from the EU, China and other countries. She told Politico: “We should be very, very clear …. [that] this is hitting the...
  • Jesuit scholar rips pope for concessions to Islam

    A Jesuit scholar with expertise in Islam is explaining why Muslims are terroristic and is warning members of his faith not to be taken in by the “liberal-left ideology” that advocates “tolerance” and “concessions.” The verdict and warning comes from Egyptian Greek Melkite Jesuit Father Henri Boulad, who was interviewed by the National Catholic Register. First, the reason for the terrorism is simple, said Boulad, 85, whose relative, Father Samir Khalil Samir, also is a Jesuit scholar of Islam. The Quran orders Muslims to inflict “terror.” *snip* The church should not defend Islam “at all costs” and seek to “exonerate...

    A growing number of radical Muslims are flocking to move from France to Britain, where generous welfare payments, lack of scrutiny from the authorities, and the ease with which families can practice strict Islam have earned the UK a reputation as a halal paradise for Salafists who are unable to secure visas for Saudi Arabia.French newspaper L’Obs reports that Small Heath, a neighbourhood of Birmingham where 95 per cent of residents practise Islam, is one of the most popular spots for French Muslims seeking a new home where women can wear the full face veil. The garment has been banned since 2010...

    Japanese and European negotiators are redoubling efforts to seal a political agreement early next month on what would be the EUÂ’s biggest free trade deal. Sources from five EU countries said the goal of the latest whirlwind of diplomatic activity is for Japanese Prime Minister ShinzĹŤ Abe to jet into Brussels for a summit July 5 or 6, ahead of a G20 summit in Hamburg on July 7. The intention is to reach a political deal covering more than 90 percent of a trade agreement, leaving only a handful of issues to be resolved later.

    European countries failed to take back from Germany tens of thousands of refugees who have to claim asylum in the country where they first entered the EU, government figures requested by the far-left Die Linke party show. Under the Dublin Regulation, migrants must claim asylum in the first EU country they enter. If they apply for asylum in another country, they can be returned to their first port of call. From the beginning of 2016 until March this year, Germany has asked countries in the bloc to take back 72,321 migrants, but only 5,321 of them were accepted, BILD reported...

  • Isolating Trump: Merkel's G-20 Climate Alliance Is Crumbling

    The German chancellor had been hoping to isolate Donald Trump on climate issues at the upcoming G-20 summit in Hamburg. But Merkel’s hoped-for alliance is crumbling, underscoring Germany’s relative political weakness globally. Many countries are wary of angering the United States. German Chancellor Angela Merkel had actually thought that Canada’s young, charismatic prime minister, Justin Trudeau, could be counted among her reliable partners. Particularly when it came to climate policy. Just two weeks ago, at the G-7 summit in Sicily, he had thrown his support behind Germany. When Merkel took a confrontational approach to U.S. President Donald Trump, Trudeau was...

    What Trump repeatedly promised to do during the election campaign has been done, and America is no longer part of the Paris Agreement. Predictably, the mainstream media here and across the Atlantic have again gone totally unhinged with prophesies of doom for America, the imminent demise of the Trump administration, and the inevitable rise of Germany and Chancellor Merkel as the new leader of the free world. This may indeed be a watershed event, but not at all as the left here and there imagines it. Contrary to the fervent desires of the leftist elites, it will result not in...

    The Trump administration on Friday touted the delivery of the first-ever shipments of U.S. natural gas to northern Europe as a move that will help lessen the demand for Russian energy supplies. Energy Secretary Rick Perry said shipments of U.S. liquefied natural gas, or LNG, arrived in the Netherlands and Poland on Thursday. "U.S. LNG has begun arriving in Europe with some frequency, providing a diverse source of supply and ensuring energy security for Europe," Perry said. "Europe has been looking to the United States as a key potential source for energy diversification to decrease Russia's leverage as the region's...

    Activity in the UK's services sector - which accounts for four-fifths of the UK economy - slowed sharply last month, according to new figures. The closely watched Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) survey by IHS Markit and the Chartered Institute for Procurement and Supply (CIPS) reported a reading of 53.8 in May - down from the nine-month high of 55.8 in April.

    European leaders criticizing President Donald Trump’s Thursday decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord have also been lobbying the administration to fast-track the approval of liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminals. ProPublica’s Andrew Revkin reported Friday that, while European leaders were “generally basking in the glow of the Paris Agreement,” they’ve been quietly lobbying Trump since February to fast-track approvals of multi-billion-dollar investments in U.S. LNG export terminals. Maros Sefcovic, who heads the European Union’s commission on energy policy, told ProPublica in April that “LNG exports were a central focus of meetings earlier in the year in Washington with...

    Just who is Emmanuel Macron? He is the new French President. When a young, charismatic European leader comes along who also is an ardent globalist, we need to pay attention. Macron is a “Europhile” who is solidly pro-European Union but is also a one-worlder. Frontpage Magazine had a headline reading, “The Globalist Empire Strikes Back in France.” The theme of the article was that in spite of Brexit, the E.U. is alive and well as is the dream of the globalists. Macron has been a Rothschild investment banker with zero political experience. It should be of no surprise that he...

    European Commission Vice-President Valdis Dombrovskis said today (27 January) that the goal of setting up European Safe Assets is to reduce banks’ exposure to sovereign debt. Speaking after the Ecofin Council, Dombrovskis said that work has been going on “for some time” on the concept of European Safe Assets at the European Systemic Risk Board (ESRB). As part of the board, the Commission has been involved in the project. The vice-president explained that the concept is about the securitisation of EU member states’ sovereign bonds. “We find this concept useful since it helps to address the issue of banks sovereign...

    George Soros has urged the European Union to continue pressing Poland and Hungary to preserve the rule of law. Speaking at the Brussels Economic Forum, the American billionaire financier said he welcomed the EU’s recent tough words on both countries which critics accuse of being increasingly authoritarian. Thousands of people have turned out for recent protest in support of Soros’ CEU university, which is under attack from the Hungarian government. “I am full of admiration for the courageous way the Hungarian people have resisted the deception and corruption of the mafia state the Orban regime has established,” Soros said.

    Germany has delivered an ominous message to British negotiators in impending Brexit talks by insisting that even the worst-case scenario would be bearable for the EU. Germany’s Economy Minister Brigitte Zypries said Friday that “even in the most adverse case,” Brexit would be “bearable for the EU economy and in particular for the German economy.” Zypries said that a new study by Germany’s ifo institute, commissioned by her ministry, pointed to “economic opportunities and risks.” While Zypries said Germany would seek “the best results” from talks, her appraisal of a bearable hard Brexit is bad news for hardline Brexiteers. They...

    BERLIN (AP) -- Top European leaders pledged Thursday to keep fighting against global warming as U.S. President Donald Trump announced he was pulling out of the Paris climate accord, they but rejected his suggestion that the deal could later be renegotiated. The leaders of France, Germany and Italy said in a joint statement that they regretted the United States' decision to withdraw from the accord, but affirmed "our strongest commitment" to implement its measures and encouraged "all our partners to speed up their action to combat climate change."While Trump said the United States would be willing to rejoin the accord...
