The EU’s Kiss of Death

The European Union is hell-bent on forcing member states to take “their share” of migrants. To this end, the European Commission has proposed reforms to EU asylum rules that would see enormous financial penalties imposed on members refusing to take in what it deems a sufficient number of asylum seekers, apparently even if this means placing those states at a severe financial disadvantage.

The European Commission is planning sanctions of an incredible $290,000 for every migrant that recalcitrant EU member states refuse to receive. Given that EU countries such as Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Austria have closed their borders to migrants or are in the process of doing so, it is not difficult to discern at whom the EU is aiming its planned penalties.

    Unless that proposed policy is scrapped, we are going to see how stupid the citizens of europe really are.

  • DavidinNorthBurnaby

    Much of Europe seems already lost to the muzzie horde. I’m just thankful that Canerduh and the Excited States are in the right hands … oh … wait …

    The greatest NY Times correction in years

    By Clarice Feldman

    “Correction: May 10, 2016 [NY Times]

    Because of an editing error, an article on Monday about a theological battle being fought by Muslim imams and scholars in the West against the Islamic State misstated the Snapchat handle used by Suhaib Webb, one of Muslim leaders speaking out. It is imamsuhaibwebb, not Pimpin4Paradise786.”

    $290,000 per year is probably what each rape-fugee costs on average when you consider food, clothing, housing, schooling, health care, policing, riot control, court costs, counselling for rape victims, etc.

    • Alain

      Agree but why even entertain the idea of paying this bogus fine.

      • Rosenmops

        Of course they shouldn’t pay the fines.

  • dukestreet

    I hope it will cause the complete dissolution of the EU,,which is what is really needed. No unelected body should have the right to impose such penalties on nations. Every nation in the EU should just leave the EU as soon as they try to do this.

      “Every body politic has a maximum strength which it cannot exceed. Expansion often makes it fall below this maximum. The more the social bond is stretched, the slacker it becomes, and a small state is usually stronger in proportion to its size than a large one.
      There are many reasons for this. First of all, administration becomes more difficult over great distances, as a weight becomes heavier at the end of a long lever. It also becomes more expensive as the number of administrative levels is increased: Each town has an administration which the people pays for; each district has one, also paid for by the people; then each province; then the larger governments, such as satrapies and viceroyalties, each costing more than the one below it, and all paid for by the unfortunate people; and finally the supreme administration, which overwhelms everything. All these accumulated charges are a constant drain on the subjects, and far from being better governed by those different authorities, they are not governed as well they would be if they were under only one. Meanwhile there are hardly any resources for emergencies, and the state is always on the verge of ruin when it must draw on those that remain.
      .. the citizens have less affection for their leaders, whom they never see, for their country, which to them seems to be the whole world, and for their fellow citizens, most of whom are strangers. The same laws cannot suit so many provinces, which have different customs and contrasting climates and cannot all tolerate the same form of government.”

        If you really want a microcosm of inefficiency then consider the amalgamation of Ottawa .
        Or Toronto.
        Or all the the Countries in Europe.
        It doesn’t work.
        All it does is create a HUGE inefficient bureaucracy where nobody has the balls to make a quick decision.

    Two words. First one starts with F, the last one with O.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    From Stettin on the Baltic to Trieste on the Adriatic, an iron curtain is descending on the EU.

    • Alain

      I suggest it is more a curtain of sanity, patriotism and common sense to exclude the West’s rush to commit national suicide.
