From the Daily Mail:

Europe is ‘underestimating’ scale of migrant crisis and could be flooded by millions of Africans in ‘biblical exodus’ unless urgent action is taken says top official

Antonio Tajani said the severity of the migrant crisis is being underestimated

European Parliament president called on urgent action to confront problem

By Rory Tingle For Mailonline
PUBLISHED: 19:46 EDT, 7 July 2017 | UPDATED: 13:31 EDT, 8 July 2017

Antonio Tajani, president of the European Parliament, has said the scale and severity of the migrant crisis is being underestimated

The number of migrants crossing into Europe from Africa will be in the millions within five years unless urgent action is taken, a senior EU official has warned.

Antonio Tajani, president of the European Parliament, has said the scale and severity of the migrant crisis is being underestimated and must be tackled urgently.

In an interview with Il Messagero newspaper, Mr Tajani said there would be an exodus ‘of biblical proportions that would be impossible to stop if we don’t confront the problem now’.

‘Population growth, climate change, desertification, wars, famine in Somalia and Sudan. These are the factors that are forcing people to leave.

‘When people lose hope, they risk crossing the Sahara and the Mediterranean because it is worse to stay at home, where they run enormous risks. If we don’t confront this soon, we will find ourselves with millions of people on our doorstep within five years.

‘Today we are trying to solve a problem of a few thousand people, but we need to have a strategy for millions of people.’

  1. That Tajani fellow is either dishonest or a fool. It isn’t those without any hope who are trying to cross over into Europe – it’s mostly young men who manage to scrounge together enough money (often thousands of dollars) for the journey. The image of desperate famished refugees fleeing for Europe because their lives are in danger is a fantasy.
    Also missing is the fact that European governments are making all of this possible by having their navies pick up the invaders and transport them to Europe. This isn’t some sort of natural disaster nothing can be done about, it’s actively enabled by Europe’s worthless and treasonous political class.

    I read somewhere that the media deliberately take photos and videos that make it appear these invasive migrants are mostly women and children. The number of teen-aged and adult males is minimized as much as possible.

    Good comment. What's lacking is the political will to stop the invasion because elites benefit from it (or think they do).
    , @Sean
    According to Paul Collier in Exodus, at present it is mainly the relatively well to to who can afford to immigrate but immigration is best seen as an investment, the cost of whichis greatly reduced by diaspora, so immigration will naturally accelerate as the more and more prospective immigrants can count on help from relatives already in the West. Eventually it will indeed begin to take in even the poorer Africans a nd women and children.

    The EU doing what it does best: funding a "media project across national borders". They're "successful" coming together to erode Europe's borders with the rest of the world:

    http://www.dw.com/en/pope-francis-praises-dw-infomigrants-news-service-as-austria-moves-to-control-border/a-39537251


    Pope Francis has sent a message to the InfoMigrants.net portal, a joint project of DW, Italy's ANSA and France's Media Monde. ...

    "I am close with affection and encouragement to those institutions, associations and individuals who open up wisely to the migratory phenomenon with interventions of support, bearing witness to the human and Christian values that are the base of European civilization," Pope Francis said.

    The Infomigrants portal, co-financed by the European Union, is published in French, Arabic and English and is aimed at migrants "to counter misinformation at every point of their journey," ...

    ... Responding to the papal message, DW Director General Peter Limbourg said: "We are pleased to receive the encouragement of the Holy Father," and added: "We can not be indifferent to the fate of millions of refugees and migrants."

    Limbourg emphasized that InfoMigrants was not a refugee aid project but a channel for news and factual information: "With InfoMigrants we have succeeded in launching a European media project across national borders," Limbourg said. "We want to help people but also to educate them about the dangers and indicate the route to legal migration."

    , @Erik Sieven
    that´s right. Also it is riciulous to talk about Sudan or Somalia. What really matters demographically is West Africa. Also "millions" is a vast underestimation. We are literally talking about billions.

    Also missing is the fact that European governments are making all of this possible by having their navies pick up the invaders and transport them to Europe. This isn’t some sort of natural disaster nothing can be done about, it’s actively enabled by Europe’s worthless and treasonous political class.
     
    The key point.

    In fairness, I think it's great that any one of these wankers is talking about African population--just as part of a process of getting people "woke".

    But his statement is rife with the same old "fixing Africa" nonsense. We must fix Africa and if we don't blah, blah, blah ...

    This is almost 180 from the reality, which is that Europe aiding/enabling this migration and absent Europe doing that there is no "migration crisis" at all. If Europe just stops doing that and enforces its borders, Africa still sucks, but it isn't infecting the rest of the world.

    Former Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi, the head of the ruling Democratic Party, said yesterday Italy should allow only a ‘fixed number’ of migrants into the country as it grapples with a wave of people arriving by sea from North Africa.

    That fixed number should be -1M/year until they are all gone.

    But it is nice to see the institutional imperative start to bite. These retarded scum are starting to realize that if they keep going with their virtue signaling policies, it will only signal an end to their cushy sinecures.

    I am puzzled as to why there are any in Italy at all - on my trips there, Italians openly dislike the Africans that have arrived there, and its seems crazy that the government continues to do nothing about it when it seems like a solid majority of the country would like to seem them gone. I realize Italian government has a reputation for incompetence, but this doesn't seem like a difficult thing to arrange.
    , @Fredrik
    What's happened is that Austria has said they will use the army to set up roadblocks to prevent the Africans from leaving Italy.

    This is why Italian politicians suddenly see the problem and want to fix it.

    , @RonaldB
    I disagree that the EU power structure is reacting to alleviate the problem.

    The dynamics are pretty obvious. The EU gins up a problem with Europe by importing millions of low-skill, low-IQ, low-impulse-control Africans and Middle Easterners. They then assert the problem can only be solved by massive transfers of wealth to the fertile countries. This massive transfer of wealth will go through the EU leaders and bureaucracy, which will deduct its share of operating expenses, fees, and honorariums.

    In other words, it's simply part of the scheme to centralize European wealth and control to the EU bureaucracy even more than it is already.

    The problem will not be solved by dumping massive resources into the fertile countries, because their peoples invest whatever wealth they accumulate into...more babies. But, the objective of the EU is not to reduce African fertility, but to transfer European wealth to the EU bureaucracy.

    Notice Tajani didn't devote even a whiff of attention to the only real solution for Europe: cut off access to Europe. This is a simple, cheap solution that does not enhance the power of the EU bureaucracy and hence is not even discussed.

    Malthus was right.

    Malthus has always been right.

    Malthus never predicted a global Apocalypse. That’s big-lie propaganda.

    Malthus only described how the world works. When a nation has reached a certain size, when there is no longer an open frontier, then the power of exponential growth is so great, that if people keep trying to double and quadruple and octuple etc.etc.etc. they will fail – and the result will be, not usually famine, but crushing misery.

    I blame those economic whores – Milton Friedman, Julian Simon, Paul Krugman – for DEMANDING that more people are ALWAYS better and that prosperity depends on people breeding like rabbits. These ‘economists’ should be forced to practice what they have so sanctimoniously preached. They (if still living) and their descendants should be stripped of all wealth and shipped off to Yemen or Bangladesh where they may experience the vibrant dynamic economics of ‘the more the merrier’ at a more personal level.

    Except we're reaching peak population and I personally, at least, have never experienced a famine or severe food shortage. That would be unlike most of my ancestors.

    How about the world is complex and when you add people, you do add resources to the world and yes, it's a good thing? And yes, we need resources to support those resources so let's think about that, too.


    I blame those economic whores – Milton Friedman, Julian Simon, Paul Krugman – for DEMANDING that more people are ALWAYS better and that prosperity depends on people breeding like rabbits.
     
    It's really extremist to have these kinds of views. Either we must all NEVER have children LEST WE DIE OF STARVATION (hasn't happened yet, could - but not yet) OR people are clearly promoting BREEDING LIKE RABBITS (TM). It's like having the number of children they could reasonably personally support, whether it's 0, 1, or 5 (sometimes 11) is like an mysterious concept never to be found in the chasm between the extremes.


    Yes, the economist bunch leaves much to be desired, but it's in the idea that economic prosperity is 100% about population numbers and nothing to do with culture and morality. They make us widgets, like a person from Niger has the same wants, motivations, and desires as myself. Like citizen in low trust country will have the same economic impact as citizen in a high trust country.

    They over simplify and in that, the theories are worthless. But people as resources, yes, that's a pretty consistent truth.

    , @RonaldB
    " economic whores – Milton Friedman, Julian Simon, Paul Krugman"

    You're being a bit harsh here.

    These economists were correct within the context of a Western culture and a Western population: high effort in child-raising, technological innovation, and a relatively free market. And in Western countries, the population has generally leveled off well in accord with the increased resources made available by technology. An example is the relatively new technology of fracking, which has dramatically increase the oil and gas reserves not just in the world, but in the West. And, I'm in favor of fracking companies paying the full (and then some) expenses of any damages done by the fracking process.

    But the dynamics are completely different when you get populations for which more babies are a genetic and cultural imperative, child-rearing is a low-attention process, and your productivity is not an index of what resources you have access to.

    These economists had integrity and were correct as far as the world they knew. It's a different world now with different rules.

    They have navies. They have warships.

    They also have borders.
    , @RonaldB
    There's actually a bit more complication than that.

    International law generally mandates that people adrift on the open seas be picked up when encountered. The European courts, particularly the International Court of Human Rights, would consider the case of a navy ignoring refugees on the seas as a criminal offense, and would no doubt issue warrants for the arrest of the naval officers involved, as well as any leaders giving the orders.

    So, any country choosing to ignore refugees in leaky rafts would at one step have to be willing to be accorded criminal status and treat the rest of the world as enemy territory. Their military and leadership would be subject to arrest when traveling anywhere in the world.

    This is the situation which would probably face Israel, except the US quite rightly vetoes any such proposal and has enough clout to make it stick.

    The willingness to face this situation is a test of high leadership, and is simply not present in the majority of countries, with the exception of East Europe.

    No they don’t have navies. No they don’t have guns. The Italian navy for example consists of a few patrol boats which mostly pick up the sexy, no-work layabouts so aging cat ladies and various sloots can get tingle thrills and rapefugee rackets can work like gangbusters.

    Europe has a pretend military, which could not fight its way out of a paper bag. That they have mostly female Presidents, Prime Ministers, and Defense Ministers is a tell that they have no real serious military. France has one aircraft carrier that cannot leave port; and that’s it.

    No, no European GOVERNMENT will or can defend its borders; they lack both the means and the will outside the Visegrad Four. [Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia]. The people are another matter and a young, hungry man might well look at the fat, comfortable, stupid, and sleek people in the government and think “why not me?” instead of Muslim and African invaders.

    Who lets get real, are invited in by the aging cat ladies and sloots that populate Europe’s fairer sex.

    Think locally in terms of your own borders. Understand what you can and can't affect. Encourage the intelligence services of your country to have the objective of preventing the interference of other countries the in affairs of your country. Honestly, the real military threat of backward countries is not that great. The threat is other Western countries. The aggression of NATO to the Serbs in 1992 is a perfect example.

    Malthus was right.

    Malthus has always been right.

    Malthus never predicted a global Apocalypse. That's big-lie propaganda.

    Malthus only described how the world works. When a nation has reached a certain size, when there is no longer an open frontier, then the power of exponential growth is so great, that if people keep trying to double and quadruple and octuple etc.etc.etc. they will fail - and the result will be, not usually famine, but crushing misery.

    I blame those economic whores - Milton Friedman, Julian Simon, Paul Krugman - for DEMANDING that more people are ALWAYS better and that prosperity depends on people breeding like rabbits. These 'economists' should be forced to practice what they have so sanctimoniously preached. They (if still living) and their descendants should be stripped of all wealth and shipped off to Yemen or Bangladesh where they may experience the vibrant dynamic economics of 'the more the merrier' at a more personal level.

    Malthus has always been right.

    Except we’re reaching peak population and I personally, at least, have never experienced a famine or severe food shortage. That would be unlike most of my ancestors.

    How about the world is complex and when you add people, you do add resources to the world and yes, it’s a good thing? And yes, we need resources to support those resources so let’s think about that, too.

    I blame those economic whores – Milton Friedman, Julian Simon, Paul Krugman – for DEMANDING that more people are ALWAYS better and that prosperity depends on people breeding like rabbits.

    It’s really extremist to have these kinds of views. Either we must all NEVER have children LEST WE DIE OF STARVATION (hasn’t happened yet, could – but not yet) OR people are clearly promoting BREEDING LIKE RABBITS (TM). It’s like having the number of children they could reasonably personally support, whether it’s 0, 1, or 5 (sometimes 11) is like an mysterious concept never to be found in the chasm between the extremes.

    Yes, the economist bunch leaves much to be desired, but it’s in the idea that economic prosperity is 100% about population numbers and nothing to do with culture and morality. They make us widgets, like a person from Niger has the same wants, motivations, and desires as myself. Like citizen in low trust country will have the same economic impact as citizen in a high trust country.

    They over simplify and in that, the theories are worthless. But people as resources, yes, that’s a pretty consistent truth.

    Theresa May called a General Election in April. May and her Tories ran a crappy campaign. The end-result was that Labour BREXIT voters and radical British Open Borders "yoof" voted for Corbyn and Labour in June. The Tories barely survive in a coalition with the Northern Irish Paisley Protestants. May is now begging Corbyn to support her new watered-down Tory BREXIT plan. During the period of time in which May was Home Secretary (2010-16), May was gung-ho for Open Borders. Corbyn doesn't like the idea of helping wounded and bleeding Tories. He is waiting for the Tories and the Paisley Prots to kill each other off. He just may get his wish.

    Well, the *truth* of the matter is that the EU is *wholly and solely* responsible for the current ‘migrant crisis’ which will eventually and inevitably kill Europe.

    The EU *insists* that member states cannot derogate from that god-awful Geneva Convention on ‘Refugees’ – something which *legally obligates* the invasion. It is the EU which forbids ‘push-backs’. It is the EU which outlaws ‘discriminatory’ policies which are necessitated in order to deal with this crisis.

    True. The EU dictates what laws and treaties its member states abide by. And the refugee treaties are in effect an agreement to abolish borders with the Third World. There's no clear dividing line between refugees and immigrants anyway. Overpopulation and inability to form a functioning state are what turns these Third World hell-holes into "war-torn" countries, which allows their people to claim asylum in Europe. In the long run, they're not escaping the chaotic savagery of their native lands. They're just importing it to ours.

    It’s not like Sweden’s rainbow burqa brigade would be required to personally man the turrets. Does any European country currently have a functioning navy? Men who are trained in warfare can be called on to ply their trade. War is atrocity, and the West has been damn good at it. Maybe now, we can put some of those skills to good use.

    And the press loves selective reporting. Maybe they could selectively refrain from running full-page outrage porn every time some would-be Nigerien bandit fails his first swimming lesson in 2,000 feet of water.

    I was hoping/expecting that it will be the Italians who will be the first in EU to say basta.

    With national elections in 2018, the Italians are in the on-deck circle. Italians are pretty much fed up with the 30% minority, Lefty government that they presently have. It looks like the “right” will be back in power next year in the Chamber of Deputies. The Italian “right” just might put a stop to all “ngo” immigrant shipping to southern Italy – – – and not a moment too soon.

    Germany goes to the polls later this year. Merkel is expected to win. Germany is well along the road to national suicide. It may be all over except the shouting for the Germans. Germany appears to be adopting the current Swedish national practice of self-immolation.

    Theresa May called a General Election in April. May and her Tories ran a crappy campaign. The end-result was that Labour BREXIT voters and radical British Open Borders “yoof” voted for Corbyn and Labour in June. The Tories barely survive in a coalition with the Northern Irish Paisley Protestants. May is now begging Corbyn to support her new watered-down Tory BREXIT plan. During the period of time in which May was Home Secretary (2010-16), May was gung-ho for Open Borders. Corbyn doesn’t like the idea of helping wounded and bleeding Tories. He is waiting for the Tories and the Paisley Prots to kill each other off. He just may get his wish.

    I feel quite bad for the minority of Germans whose eyes are open but have have to live under the regimes voted in by their fellows... But I have an idea.

    Germany should dis-unify. That is, it should return to its Cold War-era division into West and East Germanies. The East can be populated by patriotic Germans, who will be allowed/encouraged to move there, and the West can be used as a dump for all the refugees, presided over by the Merkelites.

    It would be a shame to lose so much in the West, but we would be better off having a pro-German East Germany forming a block with Eastern European countries.

    It seems like a fantasy now of course, but think of the future: it wouldn't be the first time a two-state solution was proposed to end ethnic strife with Muslims.

    Sweden at the moment accepts only the EU minimum number of migrants, but the traitorous ex-commie Greens have been agitating for that to be changed (in their favorite paper (((Dagens Nyheter)))). To some, that still seems too little too late of course.

  71. “‘When people lose hope, they risk crossing the Sahara and the Mediterranean because it is worse to stay at home, where they run enormous risks. ”

    Utter garbage of course.

    1. It will always be worse ‘at home’ than in Europe.
    2. Conversely, migration is almost always the much riskier option.
    3. It is the *hope* of a much nicer life in Europe that prompts migration. Migrants take a big risk in search of a big reward.

    ***If they sent the migrants back, the migration would stop***.
    The migration destroying Europe is a product of migrants being allowed to stay.

If SSA can't work out its own problems, that's sad, but allowing SSA to expand across the face of the Earth would be sadder.

    I read somewhere that the media deliberately take photos and videos that make it appear these invasive migrants are mostly women and children. The number of teen-aged and adult males is minimized as much as possible.

    The photos I see seem to bear out the UN’s official numbers of 70% men. I suspect it’s even higher. Women and children, men with families, are going to be very reluctant to journey along with dozens of young men who are strangers.

    Former Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi, the head of the ruling Democratic Party, said yesterday Italy should allow only a ‘fixed number’ of migrants into the country as it grapples with a wave of people arriving by sea from North Africa.

    That fixed number should be -1M/year until they are all gone.

    But it is nice to see the institutional imperative start to bite. These retarded scum are starting to realize that if they keep going with their virtue signaling policies, it will only signal an end to their cushy sinecures.

    I am puzzled as to why there are any in Italy at all – on my trips there, Italians openly dislike the Africans that have arrived there, and its seems crazy that the government continues to do nothing about it when it seems like a solid majority of the country would like to seem them gone. I realize Italian government has a reputation for incompetence, but this doesn’t seem like a difficult thing to arrange.

    Stating the obvious, but not forcefully enough. But at least someone in the EU power structure admits there's a problem.

    I disagree that the EU power structure is reacting to alleviate the problem.

    The dynamics are pretty obvious. The EU gins up a problem with Europe by importing millions of low-skill, low-IQ, low-impulse-control Africans and Middle Easterners. They then assert the problem can only be solved by massive transfers of wealth to the fertile countries. This massive transfer of wealth will go through the EU leaders and bureaucracy, which will deduct its share of operating expenses, fees, and honorariums.

    In other words, it’s simply part of the scheme to centralize European wealth and control to the EU bureaucracy even more than it is already.

    The problem will not be solved by dumping massive resources into the fertile countries, because their peoples invest whatever wealth they accumulate into…more babies. But, the objective of the EU is not to reduce African fertility, but to transfer European wealth to the EU bureaucracy.

    Notice Tajani didn’t devote even a whiff of attention to the only real solution for Europe: cut off access to Europe. This is a simple, cheap solution that does not enhance the power of the EU bureaucracy and hence is not even discussed.

    Malthus was right.

    Malthus has always been right.

    Malthus never predicted a global Apocalypse. That's big-lie propaganda.

    Malthus only described how the world works. When a nation has reached a certain size, when there is no longer an open frontier, then the power of exponential growth is so great, that if people keep trying to double and quadruple and octuple etc.etc.etc. they will fail - and the result will be, not usually famine, but crushing misery.

    I blame those economic whores - Milton Friedman, Julian Simon, Paul Krugman - for DEMANDING that more people are ALWAYS better and that prosperity depends on people breeding like rabbits. These 'economists' should be forced to practice what they have so sanctimoniously preached. They (if still living) and their descendants should be stripped of all wealth and shipped off to Yemen or Bangladesh where they may experience the vibrant dynamic economics of 'the more the merrier' at a more personal level.

    ” economic whores – Milton Friedman, Julian Simon, Paul Krugman”

    You’re being a bit harsh here.

    These economists were correct within the context of a Western culture and a Western population: high effort in child-raising, technological innovation, and a relatively free market. And in Western countries, the population has generally leveled off well in accord with the increased resources made available by technology. An example is the relatively new technology of fracking, which has dramatically increase the oil and gas reserves not just in the world, but in the West. And, I’m in favor of fracking companies paying the full (and then some) expenses of any damages done by the fracking process.

    But the dynamics are completely different when you get populations for which more babies are a genetic and cultural imperative, child-rearing is a low-attention process, and your productivity is not an index of what resources you have access to.

    These economists had integrity and were correct as far as the world they knew. It’s a different world now with different rules.

    They have navies, don't they? Their warships have guns, don't they?

    This is not in the least bit complicated.

    There’s actually a bit more complication than that.

    International law generally mandates that people adrift on the open seas be picked up when encountered. The European courts, particularly the International Court of Human Rights, would consider the case of a navy ignoring refugees on the seas as a criminal offense, and would no doubt issue warrants for the arrest of the naval officers involved, as well as any leaders giving the orders.

    So, any country choosing to ignore refugees in leaky rafts would at one step have to be willing to be accorded criminal status and treat the rest of the world as enemy territory. Their military and leadership would be subject to arrest when traveling anywhere in the world.

    This is the situation which would probably face Israel, except the US quite rightly vetoes any such proposal and has enough clout to make it stick.

    The willingness to face this situation is a test of high leadership, and is simply not present in the majority of countries, with the exception of East Europe.

    Don't be preposterous. The maritime law you cite was established for, and is sufficient only for, genuine situations of those stranded at sea. The ignominy and any punishment for a captain ignoring a shipwreck would be by and large meted out not by some international bugbear like the so-called International Court of Human Rights, but by the man's own sovereign should it learn of his behaviour. (Much as, in any functioning society, miscreant children fear much more the wrath of their fathers than that of the constabulary or the magistrate.)

    Here we've no shipwrecked persons nor distressed vessels relying upon the reciprocol altruism codified in maritime
    law; we've instead a deliberate and ongoing amphibious invasion. By your lights all the world may flaunt borders with impunity so long as they do so in a dinghy and wave a copy of some screed from the United Nations at their betters

    Notwithstanding the recent nonsense purporting to abridge sovereignty with all manner of formal rigmarole and bureaucracy such as you cite, the entire affair is a paper tiger. Who shall hold accountable the Italian navy should it begin towing, at gunpoint if need be, boats brimming with insolent Negroes back to the coasts of Africa whence they came? Or if the Greeks close their ports to these vermin, leaving them to turn back or bob in the open ocean, in international waters, until they should all starve? The Greeks have no responsibility in such a case. Will German naval officers be precluded from their frequent and indispensible trips to Tunisia? Will Morocco enact sanctions against the European nations to retaliate? Will the Chinese, what used to be the U.S.A., and Japan invade France to hunt down the alleged criminals? Who will issue these warrants you imagine? Who will execute them? Is the Sixth Fleet going to steam up the coast of Dover and launch cruise missiles at the parliament until the admiralty are handed over for trial and punishment?

    Do yourself a favour: stop smoking that stuff.

    Yes.

    The only solution is derogation from the ECJ and ECHR and the re-assertion of national independence and sovereignty.

    Before the UK entered the EU - or for that matter acceded to the ECHR - the doctrine of 'parliamentary supremacy' ran writ in the UK. Basically, this means that no court, no judge etc can, in the final analysis, overrule the will of parliament. That's why there never ever were, until Tony Blair's time, any 'charter of individual rights' in the UK. Parliament was held to be the guarantor of citizen's rights.
    Wisely, by not having a written constitution or having courts that could possibly constrain parliament, or an enforceable 'bill of rights', the framers of the Westminster parliament knowingly and willing created a system that could smoothly react to the unpredictable crises thrown up by unknowable future events in a way that the most fitting course if action for the*nation* the highest and really only interest, could be taken without the national authority being hamstrung and tripped up by 'well meaning' but ultimately counteractive, legalistic measures.

    Most Western European countries are already deeply in debt. Now they face the prospect of endless spending on social welfare for the "refugees" as well as higher security spending. The increasing chaos is also a drag on economic growth (lower tourism, brain drain, etc.). If these countries don't act soon, growth and revenues will slow further, taxes will rise and more people will flee. It's a death spiral.

    “If these (Western) countries don’t act soon, growth and revenues will slow further, taxes will rise and more people will flee.”

    Where to ? I’m not sure Poland will have all of us. Historically the first to flee are the people with the money and the people who got us into the mess.

    Germany should dis-unify. That is, it should return to its Cold War-era division into West and East Germanies. The East can be populated by patriotic Germans, who will be allowed/encouraged to move there, and the West can be used as a dump for all the refugees, presided over by the Merkelites.

    It would be a shame to lose so much in the West, but we would be better off having a pro-German East Germany forming a block with Eastern European countries.

    It seems like a fantasy now of course, but think of the future: it wouldn't be the first time a two-state solution was proposed to end ethnic strife with Muslims.

    It won’t be the first such proposition never implemented, either.

    There's actually a bit more complication than that.

    International law generally mandates that people adrift on the open seas be picked up when encountered. The European courts, particularly the International Court of Human Rights, would consider the case of a navy ignoring refugees on the seas as a criminal offense, and would no doubt issue warrants for the arrest of the naval officers involved, as well as any leaders giving the orders.

    So, any country choosing to ignore refugees in leaky rafts would at one step have to be willing to be accorded criminal status and treat the rest of the world as enemy territory. Their military and leadership would be subject to arrest when traveling anywhere in the world.

    This is the situation which would probably face Israel, except the US quite rightly vetoes any such proposal and has enough clout to make it stick.

    The willingness to face this situation is a test of high leadership, and is simply not present in the majority of countries, with the exception of East Europe.

    Don’t be preposterous. The maritime law you cite was established for, and is sufficient only for, genuine situations of those stranded at sea. The ignominy and any punishment for a captain ignoring a shipwreck would be by and large meted out not by some international bugbear like the so-called International Court of Human Rights, but by the man’s own sovereign should it learn of his behaviour. (Much as, in any functioning society, miscreant children fear much more the wrath of their fathers than that of the constabulary or the magistrate.)

    Here we’ve no shipwrecked persons nor distressed vessels relying upon the reciprocol altruism codified in maritime
    law; we’ve instead a deliberate and ongoing amphibious invasion. By your lights all the world may flaunt borders with impunity so long as they do so in a dinghy and wave a copy of some screed from the United Nations at their betters

    Notwithstanding the recent nonsense purporting to abridge sovereignty with all manner of formal rigmarole and bureaucracy such as you cite, the entire affair is a paper tiger. Who shall hold accountable the Italian navy should it begin towing, at gunpoint if need be, boats brimming with insolent Negroes back to the coasts of Africa whence they came? Or if the Greeks close their ports to these vermin, leaving them to turn back or bob in the open ocean, in international waters, until they should all starve? The Greeks have no responsibility in such a case. Will German naval officers be precluded from their frequent and indispensible trips to Tunisia? Will Morocco enact sanctions against the European nations to retaliate? Will the Chinese, what used to be the U.S.A., and Japan invade France to hunt down the alleged criminals? Who will issue these warrants you imagine? Who will execute them? Is the Sixth Fleet going to steam up the coast of Dover and launch cruise missiles at the parliament until the admiralty are handed over for trial and punishment?

    Do yourself a favour: stop smoking that stuff.

    How ironic it is that a top Eurocrat pontificates thus.

    Well, the *truth* of the matter is that the EU is *wholly and solely* responsible for the current 'migrant crisis' which will eventually and inevitably kill Europe.

    The EU *insists* that member states cannot derogate from that god-awful Geneva Convention on 'Refugees' - something which *legally obligates* the invasion. It is the EU which forbids 'push-backs'. It is the EU which outlaws 'discriminatory' policies which are necessitated in order to deal with this crisis.

    True. The EU dictates what laws and treaties its member states abide by. And the refugee treaties are in effect an agreement to abolish borders with the Third World. There’s no clear dividing line between refugees and immigrants anyway. Overpopulation and inability to form a functioning state are what turns these Third World hell-holes into “war-torn” countries, which allows their people to claim asylum in Europe. In the long run, they’re not escaping the chaotic savagery of their native lands. They’re just importing it to ours.

    Yes.

    The only solution is derogation from the ECJ and ECHR and the re-assertion of national independence and sovereignty.

    Before the UK entered the EU – or for that matter acceded to the ECHR – the doctrine of ‘parliamentary supremacy’ ran writ in the UK. Basically, this means that no court, no judge etc can, in the final analysis, overrule the will of parliament. That’s why there never ever were, until Tony Blair’s time, any ‘charter of individual rights’ in the UK. Parliament was held to be the guarantor of citizen’s rights.
    Wisely, by not having a written constitution or having courts that could possibly constrain parliament, or an enforceable ‘bill of rights’, the framers of the Westminster parliament knowingly and willing created a system that could smoothly react to the unpredictable crises thrown up by unknowable future events in a way that the most fitting course if action for the*nation* the highest and really only interest, could be taken without the national authority being hamstrung and tripped up by ‘well meaning’ but ultimately counteractive, legalistic measures.

    I agree with you on derogation.

    I cannot agree on your assertion of the disadvantages of a Constitution. The Bill of Rights is a life raft for US citizens. Furthermore, the Congress can, Constitutionally, pass any law it wants and remove it from the jurisdiction of court judgement. So, in effect, the Constitution is what Congress says it is.

    Since Congress, and the multi-cultural US are too divided to assert its Constitutional prerogatives, I doubt that abolishing the Constitution would do anything to preserve US liberties.

    The Germans voted for Merkel's party after two million migrants traipsed through Europe to get to Germany at her invitation. Why should America care if Europeans don't? Let the Africans & Muslims take over.

    I agree with the note at the end of the video. It seems to have been made by an african who can’t believe what is happening and who can hardly believe what the vibrants are able to get away with. He seems angry at the germans for letting all of this happen to their country. He’s angry at the european politicians doing nothing. He says that France is already gone. I think he’s very frustrated and just doesn’t get why Europeans don’t seem to care.

    There’s an algerian guy nicknamed Aldo Sterone who does french language videos that are a little bit of this type in that he tries to get it across to the French that they’re losing their country. He gets angry at the French for allowing this to happen. It’s the anger of someone who cares.

    Former Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi, the head of the ruling Democratic Party, said yesterday Italy should allow only a ‘fixed number’ of migrants into the country as it grapples with a wave of people arriving by sea from North Africa.

    That fixed number should be -1M/year until they are all gone.

    But it is nice to see the institutional imperative start to bite. These retarded scum are starting to realize that if they keep going with their virtue signaling policies, it will only signal an end to their cushy sinecures.

    What’s happened is that Austria has said they will use the army to set up roadblocks to prevent the Africans from leaving Italy.

    This is why Italian politicians suddenly see the problem and want to fix it.

    I suggested Britain offer up South Georgia Island as a refugee center. There in the remote South Atlantic refugees could be kept and their requests for asylum evaluated. Once the word got out that you not be allowed to squat on the streets of Paris, London or Berlin but would have only penguins to sexually assault and pure glacial water to wash down your UN rations with I think the number seeking asylum would drop considerably.

    South Georgia residency can also come with a free Antarctic cruise to McMurdo during the summer months, where refugees can find gainful employment.

    In the long run, only the policies of the “extreme right” parties can save Europe from genocide, whether these parties are voted into power or other ones adopt their policies.

    The “conservatives” who promise to “tackle” the problem are the most pernicious. All they are really promising to do is reduce the rate at which immigration is increasing.

    For two reasons, the “conservatives” are worse than the far left as represented by people such as Jeremy Corbyn. For one thing, they fool the voters by posing as “reasonable” politicians as distinct from superannuated Trotskyites like Corbyn. Secondly, they have viable economic policies to offer which can see their countries through another decade or two of mass immigration. On the other hand, under a far left government, the economic Armageddon would come a lot sooner and Europeans would be forced to wake up or die.

    3 doesn’t work.

    That Tajani fellow is either dishonest or a fool. It isn't those without any hope who are trying to cross over into Europe - it's mostly young men who manage to scrounge together enough money (often thousands of dollars) for the journey. The image of desperate famished refugees fleeing for Europe because their lives are in danger is a fantasy.
    Also missing is the fact that European governments are making all of this possible by having their navies pick up the invaders and transport them to Europe. This isn't some sort of natural disaster nothing can be done about, it's actively enabled by Europe's worthless and treasonous political class.

    According to Paul Collier in Exodus, at present it is mainly the relatively well to to who can afford to immigrate but immigration is best seen as an investment, the cost of whichis greatly reduced by diaspora, so immigration will naturally accelerate as the more and more prospective immigrants can count on help from relatives already in the West. Eventually it will indeed begin to take in even the poorer Africans a nd women and children.

    No they don't have navies. No they don't have guns. The Italian navy for example consists of a few patrol boats which mostly pick up the sexy, no-work layabouts so aging cat ladies and various sloots can get tingle thrills and rapefugee rackets can work like gangbusters.

    Europe has a pretend military, which could not fight its way out of a paper bag. That they have mostly female Presidents, Prime Ministers, and Defense Ministers is a tell that they have no real serious military. France has one aircraft carrier that cannot leave port; and that's it.

    No, no European GOVERNMENT will or can defend its borders; they lack both the means and the will outside the Visegrad Four. [Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia]. The people are another matter and a young, hungry man might well look at the fat, comfortable, stupid, and sleek people in the government and think "why not me?" instead of Muslim and African invaders.

    Who lets get real, are invited in by the aging cat ladies and sloots that populate Europe's fairer sex.

    No they don’t have navies. No they don’t have guns.

    With national elections in 2018, the Italians are in the on-deck circle. Italians are pretty much fed up with the 30% minority, Lefty government that they presently have. It looks like the "right" will be back in power next year in the Chamber of Deputies. The Italian "right" just might put a stop to all "ngo" immigrant shipping to southern Italy - - - and not a moment too soon.

    Germany goes to the polls later this year. Merkel is expected to win. Germany is well along the road to national suicide. It may be all over except the shouting for the Germans. Germany appears to be adopting the current Swedish national practice of self-immolation.

    Theresa May called a General Election in April. May and her Tories ran a crappy campaign. The end-result was that Labour BREXIT voters and radical British Open Borders "yoof" voted for Corbyn and Labour in June. The Tories barely survive in a coalition with the Northern Irish Paisley Protestants. May is now begging Corbyn to support her new watered-down Tory BREXIT plan. During the period of time in which May was Home Secretary (2010-16), May was gung-ho for Open Borders. Corbyn doesn't like the idea of helping wounded and bleeding Tories. He is waiting for the Tories and the Paisley Prots to kill each other off. He just may get his wish.

    As the French used to say, before Hollande and Macron, QUEL MERDE! - - - now the frogs just lie dead & horizontal on the proverbial lab table and take it from the fresh arrivals of the Third World . . .

    Sweden at the moment accepts only the EU minimum number of migrants, but the traitorous ex-commie Greens have been agitating for that to be changed (in their favorite paper (((Dagens Nyheter)))). To some, that still seems too little too late of course.

  115. In the ancient world, there was a great upheaval at the end of the Bronze Age, when, whole peoples, what were later called the Sea Peoples, and others, began to move into and invade the great Bronze Age civilizations of the Near East. Their invasions and movements eventually destroyed those Bronze Age civilizations and ushered in the beginning of a Dark Age in the Near East. Out of that Dark Age, new states emerged. Only Egypt escaped the destruction and managed cultural continuity. They repelled the invaders with force by assembling a navy with bowmen. I suppose there is a lesson in there somewhere.

    Malthus has always been right.
     
    Except we're reaching peak population and I personally, at least, have never experienced a famine or severe food shortage. That would be unlike most of my ancestors.

    How about the world is complex and when you add people, you do add resources to the world and yes, it's a good thing? And yes, we need resources to support those resources so let's think about that, too.


    I blame those economic whores – Milton Friedman, Julian Simon, Paul Krugman – for DEMANDING that more people are ALWAYS better and that prosperity depends on people breeding like rabbits.
     
    It's really extremist to have these kinds of views. Either we must all NEVER have children LEST WE DIE OF STARVATION (hasn't happened yet, could - but not yet) OR people are clearly promoting BREEDING LIKE RABBITS (TM). It's like having the number of children they could reasonably personally support, whether it's 0, 1, or 5 (sometimes 11) is like an mysterious concept never to be found in the chasm between the extremes.


    Yes, the economist bunch leaves much to be desired, but it's in the idea that economic prosperity is 100% about population numbers and nothing to do with culture and morality. They make us widgets, like a person from Niger has the same wants, motivations, and desires as myself. Like citizen in low trust country will have the same economic impact as citizen in a high trust country.

    They over simplify and in that, the theories are worthless. But people as resources, yes, that's a pretty consistent truth.

    They make us widgets, like a person from Niger has the same wants, motivations, and desires as myself. Like citizen in low trust country will have the same economic impact as citizen in a high trust country.

    I suggested Britain offer up South Georgia Island as a refugee center. There in the remote South Atlantic refugees could be kept and their requests for asylum evaluated. Once the word got out that you not be allowed to squat on the streets of Paris, London or Berlin but would have only penguins to sexually assault and pure glacial water to wash down your UN rations with I think the number seeking asylum would drop considerably.

    I’m sure that there are hundreds of desolate islands that would serve as “refugee” reception centers. Great idea, worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize.

    In the long run, only the policies of the "extreme right" parties can save Europe from genocide, whether these parties are voted into power or other ones adopt their policies.

    The "conservatives" who promise to "tackle" the problem are the most pernicious. All they are really promising to do is reduce the rate at which immigration is increasing.

    For two reasons, the "conservatives" are worse than the far left as represented by people such as Jeremy Corbyn. For one thing, they fool the voters by posing as "reasonable" politicians as distinct from superannuated Trotskyites like Corbyn. Secondly, they have viable economic policies to offer which can see their countries through another decade or two of mass immigration. On the other hand, under a far left government, the economic Armageddon would come a lot sooner and Europeans would be forced to wake up or die.

    Additionally, I believe that mainstream “conservative” parties are more accomplished liars than the Leftists. Leftists tend to be so ideolgically driven that they tell the truth about what they want to do, e.g., let men use public facilities that your daughter will use.

    That Tajani fellow is either dishonest or a fool. It isn't those without any hope who are trying to cross over into Europe - it's mostly young men who manage to scrounge together enough money (often thousands of dollars) for the journey. The image of desperate famished refugees fleeing for Europe because their lives are in danger is a fantasy.
    Also missing is the fact that European governments are making all of this possible by having their navies pick up the invaders and transport them to Europe. This isn't some sort of natural disaster nothing can be done about, it's actively enabled by Europe's worthless and treasonous political class.

    The EU doing what it does best: funding a “media project across national borders”. They’re “successful” coming together to erode Europe’s borders with the rest of the world:

    http://www.dw.com/en/pope-francis-praises-dw-infomigrants-news-service-as-austria-moves-to-control-border/a-39537251

    Pope Francis has sent a message to the InfoMigrants.net portal, a joint project of DW, Italy’s ANSA and France’s Media Monde. …

    “I am close with affection and encouragement to those institutions, associations and individuals who open up wisely to the migratory phenomenon with interventions of support, bearing witness to the human and Christian values that are the base of European civilization,” Pope Francis said.

    The Infomigrants portal, co-financed by the European Union, is published in French, Arabic and English and is aimed at migrants “to counter misinformation at every point of their journey,” …

    … Responding to the papal message, DW Director General Peter Limbourg said: “We are pleased to receive the encouragement of the Holy Father,” and added: “We can not be indifferent to the fate of millions of refugees and migrants.”

    Limbourg emphasized that InfoMigrants was not a refugee aid project but a channel for news and factual information: “With InfoMigrants we have succeeded in launching a European media project across national borders,” Limbourg said. “We want to help people but also to educate them about the dangers and indicate the route to legal migration.”

    Sample InfoMigrants.net stories:

    For this Syrian refugee in Germany, an apprenticeship makes all the difference

    Afousatou, a rebellious woman from the Ivory Coast who dreamed of independence

    Ross Douthat objects:

    In this column he looks forward to Europe being Africanized:
    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/08/opinion/sunday/the-west-and-what-comes-after.html

    I shouldn’t think those need be rediscovered. Though technocrats are eager to expand populations, they do it the Biblical Migration way. They’ve consistently decried doing it the biological way, which if you’re white is just plain icky. We have abortion and feminism for that.

    that´s right. Also it is riciulous to talk about Sudan or Somalia. What really matters demographically is West Africa. Also “millions” is a vast underestimation. We are literally talking about billions.

    The key point.

    In fairness, I think it’s great that any one of these wankers is talking about African population–just as part of a process of getting people “woke”.

    But his statement is rife with the same old “fixing Africa” nonsense. We must fix Africa and if we don’t blah, blah, blah …

    This is almost 180 from the reality, which is that Europe aiding/enabling this migration and absent Europe doing that there is no “migration crisis” at all. If Europe just stops doing that and enforces its borders, Africa still sucks, but it isn’t infecting the rest of the world.

    Yes.

    The only solution is derogation from the ECJ and ECHR and the re-assertion of national independence and sovereignty.

    Before the UK entered the EU - or for that matter acceded to the ECHR - the doctrine of 'parliamentary supremacy' ran writ in the UK. Basically, this means that no court, no judge etc can, in the final analysis, overrule the will of parliament. That's why there never ever were, until Tony Blair's time, any 'charter of individual rights' in the UK. Parliament was held to be the guarantor of citizen's rights.
    Wisely, by not having a written constitution or having courts that could possibly constrain parliament, or an enforceable 'bill of rights', the framers of the Westminster parliament knowingly and willing created a system that could smoothly react to the unpredictable crises thrown up by unknowable future events in a way that the most fitting course if action for the*nation* the highest and really only interest, could be taken without the national authority being hamstrung and tripped up by 'well meaning' but ultimately counteractive, legalistic measures.

    I agree with you on derogation.

    I cannot agree on your assertion of the disadvantages of a Constitution. The Bill of Rights is a life raft for US citizens. Furthermore, the Congress can, Constitutionally, pass any law it wants and remove it from the jurisdiction of court judgement. So, in effect, the Constitution is what Congress says it is.

    Since Congress, and the multi-cultural US are too divided to assert its Constitutional prerogatives, I doubt that abolishing the Constitution would do anything to preserve US liberties.
