MEP Roberta Metsola calls for a Marshall Plan to stem migration into Europe
Tuesday, 7 June 2016,


Nationalist MEP Roberta Metsola has urged EU Member States to put money in development aid in African countries and tackle immigration from its very roots.

Dr Metsola said Member States need to put their money where their mouth is and put up the funds to help build capacity in third-countries where there is no future for people. Speaking during a debate at the European Parliament plenary session in Strasbourg, Dr Metsola said that the EU and Member States "need to encourage investment into developing countries and establish a so-called Marshall Plan - that will give people a chance at a future there without fear and stem migration to Europe".

Dr Metsola, who is the European Parliament rapporteur on a holistic approach to migration, said "All too often, our focus is on emergency measures and fire-fighting situations but it clear that we need to do more to work to prevent these situations from occurring in the first place. As politicians we need to move away from our traditional comfort zones and start to tackle the causes of migration otherwise we risk our actions always being too little too late."

Underlining Europe's place in world geo-politics, Dr Metsola said that "migration is a global phenomenon but one that requires measured, compassionate and effective European leadership. Europe needs thinking that goes beyond tomorrow's headlines and instead focuses on tomorrow's generation. Too often States have been found wanting."

"Europe needs to renew its relationship with key States in Africa.  We can and we should help States build up their law enforcement, judicial and - crucially - asylum systems so that people in need of protection can also find safe haven in States outside of Europe - closer to their countries of origin, but these States must also accept the return of their nationals who are not in eligible for protection in Europe." added Dr Metsola.

This poor, naive woman with her Readers Digest education - another "Educated Idiot".
We have poured trillions of our hard earned money, down the bottomless pit of The Dark Continent.
Nothing, but nothing can uplift the Kaffir - it is the average IQ of 82-85.

And who will fork out all these billions?
Perhaps Metsola, or Kommodini or the other incompetents il gahan Malti voted for - 
perhaps, just perhaps Metsola will put her "money where their mouth is"- and contribute her salary towards the poor Africans.

Why does Mesola and the other idiots reason like this?
Simple! Because saving the Illegal Invaders, takes precedence over everything - including the survival of their own, very children.
You see: it's The Jesus Poison Philosophy of Death, that guides Meltsola il-Pecluqa.

EU to use aid and trade to stop Africa migration


EU leaders are likely to agree to use all means possible to keep irregular migrants from leaving Africa to reach Europe when they meet at a summit in Brussels later, according to leaked papers seen by this website.

The heads of state are set to back a master plan to use development aid and trade as leverage against so-called countries of origin in Africa.

Most of the people disembarking from Libya to reach Italy by boat come from Nigeria, The Gambia, Ivory Coast, Guinea, Mali, Senegal and Egypt. Few are Syrians and most are said to be economic migrants.
The renewed emphasis on Africa follows border closures in the Western Balkans and a March deal with Turkey that has resulted in a sharp reduction of people entering Greece.

Germany's chancellor Angela Merkel pushed the EU-Turkey deal after some 1 million sought asylum last year in her country.

Around 64,000 people have since reached Italy from the North African coast this year. And almost 3,000 have died in the attempt.

A senior EU official said the hope is to find similar leadership with Africa.

"We need 'Merkels', leaders who add their own leverage to the EU leverage, like Merkel did with Turkey," said the official.

'Small piece of the puzzle'

Leaked draft conclusions from the summit, seen by this website, suggest EU states are prepared to do whatever is necessary.

The draft says the EU will "create and apply the necessary leverage" to slow the flows from Africa.

This includes using "all relevant EU policies, instruments and tools, including development and trade".

The same document also wants to speed up returns.

Those caught in the EU without the right for international protection will be sent home even if there are no readmission agreements, formal arrangements that allow for the returns.

The draft notes the need to apply "temporary arrangements" until such agreements are formalised and applied in full.

But such moves are likely to upset African states. EU leaders and African heads of state had already clashed on the issue last November at the Valletta summit in Malta.

The EU at time wanted, among other things, a so-called EU travel document to speed up returns of unwanted migrants who have no ID cards or passports.

African nations baulked at the plan in Valletta but the EU is moving ahead with the idea anyway. MEPs in the EU parliament's civil liberties committee in May backed the travel document proposal.

"It is one small piece in the puzzle and one step in the right direction," said at the time the MEP in charge of the file, Finnish conservative Jussi Halla-aho.

The plan now is to focus the so-called countries of origin in Africa but also transit countries like pariah state Sudan.

Problems with Sudan

Sudan's ministry of interior has requested the EU help fund border infrastructure at 17 crossing points.

This includes computers, scanners, servers, cars and aircraft. It also wants two reception centres in Gadaref and Kassala, with so-called "custody rooms".

Sudan deported at least 442 Eritreans, including six registered refugees, to Eritrea in May, a month after the EU commission had announced €100 million development aid package for Sudan.

EU development commissioner Neven Mimica made the announcement following his visit to the country, whose president Omar al-Bashir is wanted for genocide.

Mimica didn't meet Bashir but he did hold meetings with the Sudan's interior ministry, among others in the government.

The commission says funding won't go to the Sudan government.

External investment fund

Part of the package on Tuesday includes a proposal, to be presented in September, for a new external investment fund.

An EU source told EUobserver that the idea behind the investment fund is "to create better conditions in these countries so that less people would leave".

The fund will pool private and public funds together to help build things like big infrastructure projects.

It's part of a larger idea announced earlier this month by the EU commission to shore up money and bilateral relations with African states.

The commission said some €3.1 billion will be mobilised for its so-called partnership framework. The money is then expected to trigger total investments of up to €31 billion and possibly €62 billion.

European Investment Bank (EIB) chief Werner Hoyer, for his part, will on Tuesday brief the heads of the state on separate but linked proposal to the external fund.

But an EU source said it was unlikely there would be clear commitments made by EU heads of state to the EIB plan and the external fund.

"Don't expect any clear commitments to this but those will be mentioned," he noted.

The incredible stupidity of the Liberal mind.
They believe in the nonsense of Equality - they believe that Blacks are Whites!
Liberals believe that one can negotiate and make deals with African countries.

Trillions of dollars have been poured into that bottomless pit, that Dark Continent called Africa.
The White Man found the sub-human Kaffir, just 2 million of them, eking out a miserable existence.
Then, the do-gooders waded in with the Jesus Poison - and the sub-Saharan Black population will number 2 billion by 2050 - a planetary disaster.

The Black man will ignore any deal - he will just pocket the lollies and keep fornicating.
And Africa will remain the dump it has always been - unless the Whites move in again, whiplash in hand.
 And We will let the Blacks well alone and watch them starve and within just two generations, they will return to the 2 million, when Livingstone found them.

The present EU, full of Metsola's, Kommodinis and Dalli (she is busy changing nappies!)
Do not understand the Reality of Nature's Laws - they are women, practicing Feminine Politics.
We need a New Europe: NOVA EUROPA.

Merkel's party asks EU parliament chief to go when term ends

European Parliament (EP) president Martin Schulz should leave his post at the end of his term and give way to a center-right MEP, officials from chancellor Angela Merkel's party in Germany have said.
Schulz, a German social-democrat, has been head of the EP since January 2012. His current term runs until the end of the year.

While MEPs are elected for five years, an EP president's term is two and a half years long and the parliament's two main parties, the center-right EPP and the social-democrat S&D, traditionnally alternate the presidency.
But Schulz, who was a candidate for the European Commission top job in 2014, got a second term as a consolation prize after his defeat by current commission president Jean-Claude Juncker.

He has not yet announced that he would run for a third term, but this is the general expectation in Brussels.

"There is an agreement, which is to change when his term ends. And given that Mr. Schulz is a man of honour, I assume he will stick to his own commitment," Julia Kloeckner, a vice-president of the CDU, the christian-democrat party of chancellor Merkel, told Die Welt newspaper on Wednesday.

The call for Schulz to step aside comes after the Brexit vote in the UK drew criticism from Germany towards EU institution leaders.



Some German media, including Die Welt, and unnamed ministers have called for Juncker to resign over his personal behaviour, some of his policy ideas and his handling of Brexit.

Schulz's is also being targeted by CDU officials, as disagreements between coalition partners in Berlin increase.

"The SPD stands for everything that makes people angry at Europe," CDU secretary general Peter Tauber said also in Die Welt, referring to Schulz' Social Democrat Party, which governs in a coalition with the CDU.

Since the British vote to leave the EU, several SPD politicians, including foreign affairs minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier have called for more EU intregration.

The CDU, including Merkel and finance minister Wolfgang Schaeuble have warned against such a move in the face of public distrust towards the EU.

Schulz himself on Monday called for a "genuine EU government" that would be directly elected and under the control of the European Parliament and a second house that would represent member states.

Retirement plans

"We must clearly define what citizens can and must expect in certain areas of the EU,” Schulz wrote in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

So far no MEP from the centre-right EPP group has openly said he would be a candidate to succeed Schulz.

The obvious EPP candidate would be the group's leader, Manfred Weber. But as a German member of the CSU, the Bavarian branch of the CDU, it could prove difficult to install another German at the parliament helm for a third term in a row.

A source in the EP told EUobserver on Wednesday morning that Schulz' succession has not been discussed yet but that some EPP MEPs have started to speak about it.

"Some says that Schulz should rather inform us about his retirement plans than talk about the future of Europe," the source said.

Orban: Globalists Will Use Mass Migration To Replace Europeans and ‘Crush The Will Of The People’
http://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/02/13/globalists-will-use-mass-migration-crush-will-people/

Hungary’s Viktor Orbán believes the globalist establishment will not respond to their defeats in 2016 by reexamining their policies, but by encouraging a wave of mass migration which will “crush the will of the people” and replace Europe’s existing populations.
“[T]he lords of globalist politics are not searching for the fault within themselves” after their defeats in the Brexit referendum and the U.S. presidential election, he claims, “but are instead blaming the people and nations”.

“They have decided they will not surrender their positions, but will crush any will of the people that opposes the open society and liberal governance. They have declared that if elections in a certain country are not won by their ideological partners, by the liberals, then in that country democracy no longer exists. They have declared that the people constitute a danger to democracy.”


Orbán believes that politicians wedded to the no borders, multicultural “open society” – a reference to the Open Society Foundations funded by George Soros, the billionaire financier whom the Hungarian authorities regard as a malign influence – will respond to reverses at the ballot box by attempting to undermine Europe’s electorates through mass migration.

f the poor, slowly-awakening citizens do after all dig in their heels, they’ll be flooded with a few million migrants: ‘If these fuddy-duddies in Europe, who are unwilling or unable to shake free of their Christian roots and patriotic feelings, won’t take heed, then let’s dig deeper and replace the subsoil of European life. Let masses of people from different religious backgrounds – who have been raised with different morals and different traditions, and who have no idea about Europe – come and teach us a lesson’.


“This is how the world’s most bizarre coalition of people smugglers, human rights activists and leading European politicians was created, with the aim of systematically bringing millions of migrants into Europe. Where will all this lead?”

 The E.U. Experiment Has Failed
by
Bruce Thornton

The slow-motion crisis of the European Union is the big story that rarely gets the attention it deserves. Even an event like the recent terrorist attack in France that left 17 dead is often isolated from the larger political, economic, and social problems that have long plagued the project of unifying the countries of Europe in order to harness its collective economic power, and to avoid the bloody internecine strife that stains its history.

On the economic front, the E.U.’s dismal economic performance over the last six years was summed up in a December headline in Business Insider: “Europe Stinks.” The 2008 Great Recession exposed the incoherence of the E.U.’s economic structure, particularly its single currency, which is held hostage by the diverse economic policies of sovereign nations. The data tell the tale. The E.U.’s GDP grew 1 percent in 2013, anemic compared to the U.S.’s 2.2 percent. In December 2014, unemployment in the E.U. averaged 11.4 percent, while in the U.S. it was 5.6 percent. We are troubled by our labor force participation rate of 62.7 percent, a 36-year low. But in the E.U., it was 57.5 percent in 2013. Our recovery from the recession may be slow by our historical standards, but it is blazing compared to the E.U.’s.

The E.U.’s economic woes have many causes, but intrusively regulated economies and outsized government spending on generous social welfare transfers are two of the most important. Despite the rebuke of such policies delivered by the recession, government spending as a percentage of GDP has actually increased in the E.U., from 45.5 percent in 2007 to 49 percent in 2013, even as many Europeans decry the harsh “austerity” measures called for by countries like Germany. Greece, the E.U member increasingly in danger of being forced to exit the monetary union and thus risk its unraveling, has nonetheless raised its government spending from 46.8 percent in 2007 to 59 percent in 2013.

As Josef Joffe of Germany’s Die Zeit newspaper summarized in January, “These ailments are deeply embedded in economies that lag behind on investment, innovation and competitiveness . . . Europe as a whole is beginning to look like Greece writ large. But the long-term data whisper to Europe as well as to Greece: Reform or decline.”

Socially, the E.U. is troubled by two trends: demographic decline and the presence of concentrated populations of unassimilated and disaffected Muslim immigrants. Europe is an aging people; by 2030, one in four Europeans will be 65 years or older, reflecting the Europeans’ failure to reproduce. Not since the 1970s have European women averaged 2.1 children, the number necessary to replace a population. The rate in 2014 was 1.6. In countries with low retirement ages and generous benefits, an aging population means more and more money taken from the productive young and investment in the economy, further reducing competiveness, innovation, and growth.

And it means fewer workers, a factor in the influx of immigrants into the E.U. over the last several decades. As Ingo Kramer, head of the Confederation of German Employers’ Associations, put it, “We need immigration for our labor market and to allow our social system to function.” Large numbers of these immigrants have come from Muslim countries, bringing with them a religion and social mores radically different from Europe’s. Yet European countries have done a poor job of demanding assimilation of immigrants into the cultures of their new homes.

The result has been large concentrations of immigrants segregated in neighborhoods like the banlieues of Paris or the satellite “dish-cities” of Amsterdam. Shut out from labor markets, plied with generous social welfare payments, and allowed to cultivate beliefs and cultural practices inimical to liberal democracy, many of these immigrants despise their new homes and find the religious commitment and certainty of radical Islam an attractive alternative. And like the two French-Algerian brothers who attacked the offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, some turn to terrorism.

Such violence, along with cultural practices like honor killings, forced marriages, and polygamy, remind Europeans of just how alien many immigrants are. They are stoking a political backlash against Muslims, the political consequences of which will be disruptive, if not dangerous. Populist parties, for example, opposed to unfettered immigration, angry at sluggish economies, and chafing against E.U. regulatory encroachments on national sovereignty, are growing across Europe. And there are signs that there is a constituency for these parties.

In France, which has 5 million Muslims, the largest Muslim population in Europe, a recent bestseller is Éric Zemmour’s Le suicide Français, about the erosion of French national identity and sovereignty. After the attacks in Paris, novelist Michel Houellebecq’s new novel Soumission, which imagines a France ruled by the Muslim Brotherhood, became an instant bestseller. These literary successes make sense given that according to a 2013 poll in the French newsweekly L’Express, 74 percent of the French said that Islam “is not compatible with French society.”

Similar sentiments and political reactions can be found across Europe. The United Kingdom Independence party in England, the National Front in France, and the “Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the Occident” (PEGIDA) in Germany are united in their Euroskepticism. They are all calling for renewed pride in Western civilization and their national identities, and demand that immigration be limited and Muslim immigrants compelled to assimilate. If these parties continue to strengthen their membership, they will be able to join coalition governments. At that point, they will be able to affect policy in ways—like restricting immigration—that will lead to greater political conflict and perhaps civil violence.

All these economic, social, and political problems are no secret. But the proposed solutions to them usually focus on policy changes or technical adjustments to the structure and functioning of the E.U. Yet this begs the fundamental question that has troubled European unification ever since it began with the Treaty of Rome in 1957: What comprises the collective beliefs and values that can form the foundations of a genuine European-wide community? What is it that all Europeans believe?

Europe and its nations were forged in the matrix of ideas, ideals, and beliefs of Christianity, which gave divine sanction to notions like human rights, the sanctity of the individual, political freedom, and equality. Today, across Europe Christian belief is a shadow of its former self. Fewer and fewer Europeans regularly go to church, with weekly attendance in most European countries in the low double digits. Churches are being shuttered across the continent; the Church of England closes about 20 churches a year and the German Catholic Church closed 515 in the past decade, according to the Wall Street Journal. It is common for many European cathedrals to have more tourists during a service than parishioners. This process of secularization––already well advanced in 1887 when Nietzsche famously said, “God is no more than a faded word today, not even a concept”––is nearly complete today, leaving Europeans without it historical principle of unity.

Nor over the last century have the various substitutes for Christianity managed to fill the void. Political religions like communism and fascism failed bloodily, leaving behind mountains of corpses. Nor has secular social democracy, with its utopian ideals, provided people with a transcendent principle that justifies sacrifice for the greater good, or even gives people a reason to reproduce. A shared commitment to leisure, a short workweek, and a generous social safety net is nothing worth killing or dying for. Neither is the vague idea of a transnational E.U. ruled by unaccountable Eurocrats in Brussels and Strasbourg.

More important, from its beginning, the idea of the E.U. depended on the denigration of patriotism and national pride, for these were seen as the road to the exclusionary, blood-and-soil nationalism that fed Nazism and fascism. Yet all peoples are the product of a particular culture, language, mores, histories, traditions, and landscapes. The “postmodern” abstract E.U. ideal of transcending such parochial identities was destined to collide with the real cultural differences between European nations. These differences have become obvious during the economic crisis of the last decade, when hard-working, thrifty Germans have been loath to subsidize what they see as indolent, improvident Greeks, suggesting that there is more that separates than unites those two peoples. That sense of belonging to a community defined by a shared identity cannot be created by a single currency.

National pride and amour propre were not eliminated by the E.U. and the ideology of its bureaucratic elites, only driven underground for a while. With Christianity moribund, and patriotism stigmatized as neo-fascist, it is unsurprising that Europe has failed to find a unifying principle beyond mere material comfort, resulting in the continent-wide malaise that manifests itself in the various failed policies threatening the E.U. project today, what Pope Francis last November called “a general impression of weariness and aging, of a Europe which is now a ‘grandmother,’ no longer fertile and vibrant”—a culture “weary with disorientation.”

We American should not indulge the schadenfreude aroused by watching our sometimes-condescending older cousins slip farther and farther behind us in global importance and power. Europe is still collectively the world’s largest economy, and its travails will impact the whole globe. More importantly, many of the trends weakening Europe today are active in our own country. The scorning of national pride and American exceptionalism, the decline of Christianity in the public square, multiculturalism and its ethnic separatism and divisive identity politics, and the preference of many Americans for greater social welfare spending, redistribution of wealth, and dirigiste economic policies all point us to a fate like Europe’s.

Self-doubt about the goodness of one’s way of life and living just for today’s pleasures are luxuries a great power cannot afford. In a world of violent ideologies and aggressive autocrats, a free people must have something beyond this world that they believe is worth killing and dying for. Europe seemingly has lost those ideals and beliefs that made it the nurse of freedom, democracy, and human rights. America has taken on that global role, but if we go the way of Europe, if we too no longer know what we believe, who will take our place?

Good article but somehow lacks the will to point out the truly underlying reasons, or causes of Europe's decline.
The article also lacks a convincing conclusion, lacks solutions.
That is where We come in.
