Sweden’s Prime Minister, Stefan Löfven, has found a solution to his party’s crisis: Stop talking about immigration, Sweden’s Fria Tider reports.
Löfven’s Social Democrats collapse to historically low numbers while the Swedish Democrats are getting stronger in opinion polls.
Now the Prime Minister Stefan believes that he has found a solution: Change the debate from immigration to welfare, as the former question benefits Swedish Democrats.
And what group is predominately on welfare, you socialist moron?
Austria’s right wing coalition has unveiled plans to limit benefit payments for foreigners, including refugees, who can not speak German. The move risks legal challenges from the European Union.
Sweden’s got a major supply and demand problem.
The report by the province’s human rights commission finds that black and Indigenous children are over-represented in the child-welfare system.
Wilders says all real refugees deserve shelter, but he is surprised about how rich Middle Eastern countries don’t give it to them.
Instead the refugees, but also lots of non-refugees, come to Europe and ‘travel through five or six safe countries‘ to reach the continent’s ‘big fat welfare states’, he says.
From Robert Donachie at Daily Caller,
Wealthy New Yorkers can currently lower their federal taxable income by more than $100,000 through a provision of the tax code known as the State and Local Tax Deduction, or SALT. The average SALT deduction in the Manhattan area is at least $60,000.
The Republican bill will cap the deduction amount at $10,000, meaning wealthy New Yorkers who currently write off expensive real estate could face an extra six figures in taxable income.
President Donald Trump is expected to sign the bill into law by Christmas, which is why many hedge fund and private equity managers are seriously considering getting out of New York. More.
Reality check: In short, they were big supporters of every type of largesse the government could think up as long as someone else was paying. It’ll be a test of Trump’s presidency whether he does sign the bill for the cold shower these people need.
One could, of course, refer the Chardonnay socialists to the many Bible verses on the virtue of giving till it hurts of one’s own wealth. But somehow, we fear they will have a secularist meltdown at that point and renew their attacks on traditional religion instead.

The president said the White House would be submitting plans for initiatives on welfare as well as healthcare and infrastructure after the tax push. Welfare reform is “desperately needed in our country,” he said.
As reported by Quartz, the idea has already run into major opposition from some sectors of society, but no matter. The ruling Liberal Party in Ontario will soon launch a pilot “universal basic income” to residents in as many as three cities later this year.
Denmark has discovered that dozens of its citizens fighting for Islamic State have continued to receive cash benefits. According to local media the government somehow expects jihadists to pay the improperly distributed funds back.
An Iranian refugee receiving welfare benefits in Maine while becoming self-radicalized before he fought and died for ISIS has an enraged Gov. Paul R. LePage calling for a sweep of all such taxpayer-funded payouts in his state and nationwide.
Adnan Fazeli, 38, came to Freeport, Maine, in 2009 and was killed last year on the battlefield in Lebanon after abandoning his wife and three kids to join the terror army, according to federal court documents unsealed this week.
LePage said the stunning news of an Islamic State convert in his midst has left him “embarrassed” and outraged at President Obama’s “failed” vetting of immigrants, adding he’s fed up with states like his being left to deal with the refugee crisis.
Possible ways of paying for it include:
- fees on salaries of people who earn more than the minimum
- savings from welfare programs that would be discontinued
- spending cuts in the state budget
Polygamous marriages, largely confined to Muslim families, are recognised in Britain only if they took place in countries where they are legal.
At present additional wives can receive reduced individual income support, meaning the husband and his first wife receive up to £114.85. Subsequent spouses living under the same roof receive a reduced allowance of about £40 each.
Under the new system of universal credit, polygamous marriages are not recognised at all.
But a House of Commons library paper, published earlier this month, has highlighted a loophole that will allow additional wives to claim a full single person’s allowance while the husband and his first wife still receive theirs.
