Vladimir Putin on verge of getting powerful new ally in EU as ITALY goes pro-Russia

VLADIMIR Putin’s Russia will get a powerful ally in the EU if Italy’s two elected anti-Brussels parties strike a deal to create an all-populist Government, experts fear.

High-ranking Brussels are reportedly deeply anxious about the outcome of leadership negotiations between the right-wing Lega and anti-establishment Five Star Movement who are locked in talks following the March 4 election which ended in a hung parliament.

If Five Star manage to agree a compromise with Lega Brussels could see a major EU country lobbying for pro-Russian measures in the EU Parliament.

Marine Le Pen Slams Macron for 'Illusions' He Could've Changed Trump's Mind

President Trump’s decision to walk out of the 2015 nuclear agreement with Tehran has prompted condemnation by other P5+1 members, including the EU, Russia and China.

France’s National Front head Marine Le Pen believes that President Emmanuel Macron bears his share of responsibility” for the “illusions” he had about his ability to talk President Trump out of withdrawing from the nuclear deal with Tehran.

“I resolutely condemn the position of Donald Trump and also that of the French diplomacy which, in its attempts to be even more neo-Conservative than (US national security adviser] John Bolton, has found itself without US patronage and no alternative way to go,” Le Pen said in a statement released on Friday.

Netanyahu: “Let’s You and Him Fight”: Brandishing the American Miitary

Fred On Everything is P.O.ed!

Why did the Cockatoo-in-Chief renege on the Iran deal deeply prized by Russia, China, France, Germany, England, and the European Union? Why did he deliberately damage relations with Europe and cost American workers many thousands of jobs at Boeing among others? Why do all of this to hurt a country that poses no danger to the United States?

Israel.Israel, Israel. Israel. Israel.
Always Israel.

But while “the Jews” didn’t sink the Iran deal, a comparatively small number of Israel-firsters did. These are the Neocons, warlike and heavily Jewish, plus the Jewish lobby AIPAC plus a few Jewish billionaires. Collectively they determine American foreign policy, and not for the benefit of America........

European Central Bank president Draghi backs SLUSH FUND to prop-up failing European banks

We were lied to! Secret document FCO 30/1048 kept truth about EU from British for 30 years

A SECRET document, which remained locked away for 30 years, advised the British Government to COVER-UP the realities of EU membership so that by the time the public realised what was happening it would be too late.

Almost all of the shocking predictions – from the loss of British sovereignty, to monetary union and the over-arching powers of European courts – have come true.

But damningly for Tory Prime Minister Edward Heath, and all those who kept quiet about the findings in the early 70s, the document, known as FCO30/1048, was locked away under Official Secrets Act rules for almost five decades.

The classified paper, dated April 1971, suggested the Government should keep the British public in the dark about what EEC membership means predicting that it would take 30 years for voters to realise what was happening by which time it would be too late to leave.

If Five Star manage to agree a compromise with Lega Brussels could see a major EU country lobbying for pro-Russian measures in the EU Parliament.

The two parties have similar views not only on the EU, which they believe is too intrusive in the Italian politics and crippled the country’s economy with its austerity measures, but also on Russia.

Both the Five Star and Lega’s electoral programmes vowed to work towards a normalisation of relations between Italy and Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, supported by the Kremlin, and asked to put an end to sanctions against Moscow following the annexation of Crimea.

Open rebellion? Europe signals patience drying up as US re-imposes harmful Iran sanctions

Europeans are angry over the latest US-imposed set of sanctions harming EU interests in the wake of Donald Trump quitting the Iran nuclear deal. The EU needs to decide whether to finally stand up for itself, analysts told RT.

Aside from imperiling a landmark international accord and endangering regional and global security, the US pull-out from the 2015 agreement with Iran will have crushing economic consequences for Europe. French, German and UK firms stand to lose billions of euros in investments and trade if they are forced to comply with the sanctions that will be re-imposed and expanded now that the US is no longer a signatory of the nuclear deal.

Now, facing the ruinous economic and political fallout from Washington’s unwillingness to honor its agreements, Europe has signaled that it may choose to pursue its own interests – as opposed to obediently swallowing what the US dictates.

EU DIVIDED: Germany says Macron’s vision for more European integration goes 'TOO FAR'

The French President has pushed an agenda of huge Eurozone changes since taking charge of Paris in May 2017 – including introducing a European minister for finance, a separate Eurozone budget and parliament.

Mr Macron is, however, struggling to convince Germany that his visions are right for the European Union, with Angela Merkel dragging her feet over the reforms.

The German Chancellor might agree that there is a need for a swift change to how the Eurozone operates but first has to contend with her coalition government, which is not so convince.

Paris and Berlin might be about to deliver a Eurozone reform plan at an EU summit in Brussels toward the end of June, but German are far from convinced by Mr Macron’s proposals.

'Europe has LOST IT!' Israeli MP EXPLODES at Brussels' appeasing stance on Iran

Israel news: Yair Lapid ripped into the EU for its "appeasing" stance on Iran
"They lost sight of who are the bad guys and who are the good guys in this entire scenario. They forgot that appeasement never works with terrorists and Iran is a terrorist country."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This has to be one of the most dishonest pieces of corporate media reporting I have ever seen.

First, no missiles were targeted at Jerusalem. All the military action is taking place in the Golan, which is still legally Syrian territory occupied by Israel.

Second, Israel provoked this escalation by attacking Syria just an hour after Trump pulled out of the Iran deal. The Syrian attack was a response to Israel's provocation.

Third, Syria reports that it was the Syrian army and not the Iranian forces that fired the missiles.

UPDATE:" I posted the above to the comments section of the original article.

EU Moves to Defend Companies From US Sanctions Against Iran

One major argument against the US withdrawing from the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran was the impact it would have on US relations with the other parties to the deal, including European allies. This appears indeed to be the case, as Europe scrambles to strike back against the US measures.

Whether or not Beijing defies US sanctions, China’s roots in Iran are already deep

In the wake of the Trump administration’s decision to unilaterally withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal, global firms that have dipped their toes in the Iran market are left with few good choices.

Europe moves to safeguard Iran interests after US pullout

Europe's heavyweight economies took steps Friday to safeguard their commercial and political interests in Iran, seeking to keep the nuclear deal with Tehran alive after Washington pulled out and said sanctions would follow.

Germany, France have significant trade links with Iran and remain committed to the nuclear agreement, as does Britain, and all three countries' foreign ministers plan to meet on Tuesday to discuss it.

That is part of a flurry of diplomatic activity lined up following Tuesday's unilateral withdrawal from what U.S. President Donald Trump called "a horrible, one-sided deal", a move accompanied by the threat of penalties against any foreign firms doing business in Iran.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said possibilities to save the deal without Washington needed to be discussed with Tehran, while France's Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said EU states would propose sanctions-blocking measures to the European Commission.

The West worried about Russia's efforts to reduce military spending

In 2013, 65 world countries recognised the USA the largest threat to the whole world. The United States has made Iraq become hell on Earth, and now the same is happening to Libya, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Syria, and more recently - Yemen... According to German experts, military spending in the world reached its peak in 2017 since the end of the Cold War. A report from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) says that global defense spending in 2017 made up $1.7 trillion, which was 1.1 percent higher than in 2016. China was ranked first on SIPRI's list as Beijing increased its defense spending by 12% at a time to $228 billion. The United States decided to increase its spending on military needs to $700 billion in 2018. At the same time, for the first time in 20 years, the military budget of the Russian Federation has reduced by 20%, because Russia gave her third position on the list of countries with largest defence budgets to Saudi Arabia.

White House Preparing New Iran Sanctions, EU May Block Them

One day after President Trump scrapped US involvement in the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran, the White House says new sanctions against Iran’s civilian nuclear program will be coming very soon.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee-Sanders promised “enormous sanctions on them,” saying that the intention is all former sanctions are to be back in place, and that the administration will add new ones on top of that as soon as next week.

That’s the plan, at least. In reality, the pre-deal sanctions were heavily negotiated internationally, and there is no sign that anyone else will be going along with the US push this time. Indeed, there is every reason to believe the European Union will block US sanctions from being enforced, and may threaten retaliatory sanctions against the US in the process.

Trump’s Iran deal exit forces EU to confront US ‘economic policeman of the world’

US President Donald Trump’s pullout from the Iran nuclear deal has put Europe under pressure to salvage the 2015 multilateral agreement. But does the EU have what it takes to stand up to US sanctions?

The day after Trump announced his long-dreaded decision to withdraw from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, EU members were hammering out measures to try to protect European firms doing business in Iran from US sanctions.

The JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) – as the Iran deal is formally known – was signed between Iran, the US, Russia, China, Britain, France, Germany and the EU.

But Trump’s pullout has left international companies doing business in Iran vulnerable to the extraterritoriality of US law, which enables Washington to punish foreign companies operating in Iran if they have business dealings with the US or use dollar transactions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good reason to stop using the dollar!

The view from Iran: Treacherous America, spineless Europe

There's a method to Trump's madness, some Iranians believe - while others see little actual methodology involved in his decision-making process. Before the age of Trump, the conversation in Tehran about relations with the West has almost always involved debate on two key questions: US trustworthiness and EU significance.

The longstanding and prevailing view has been that the United States is politically dishonest and the European Union is inconsequential. During the 2013 election campaign of President Hassan Rouhani, this assessment of the US was publicly challenged while the consensus about the Europeans remained unchanged.

“European Union (EU) residents have less confidence in vaccine safety than people in any other region in the world. From the perspective of the powerful pharmaceutical industry and its bought politicians, this growing skepticism about vaccine orthodoxy cannot be permitted to gain further momentum.”

“Ignoring massive protests by citizens and municipal authorities, the governments of France, Italy and other EU nations (with the help of Big-Pharma lobbyists) have begun methodically and paternalistically proposing and/or enacting new vaccine laws. These laws aim to erase any remaining ability for citizens to weigh risk-benefit information and make vaccine decisions for themselves.”

"We are ready to look for generally acceptable approaches with our German and Western partners even under the current situation, which we find utterly unsatisfactory, that has been created through no fault of ours.

US sanctions against Iran are ‘sword of Damocles hanging over Belgian economy’

A new round of US sanctions against Tehran are likely to seriously damage Belgian companies, according to a Wallonia region investment agency.

After the nuclear deal with Iran was reached, many Walloon companies started resuming business ties with the country.

"An average of about 30 companies were present on our joint missions to Iran,”said General Administrator of Wallonia Export-Investment Agency (Awex), Pascale Delcomminette, as quoted by the Brussels Times.

“The country offers interesting prospects for Walloon companies," she added. Despite Iran being placed 99th among Wallonia’s export markets, the Belgian region has investment interests in the country’s agro-industry, mechanical engineering, infrastructure, environment and energy.

Merkel: Europe Can No Longer Rely on US 'to Protect It'

As European countries failed to prevent Donald Trump from pulling Washington out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the tension between Iran and the US escalates.

"It is no longer such that the United States simply protects us, but Europe must take its destiny in its own hands, that's the task of the future," Chancellor Angela Merkel said Thursday after US President Donald Trump announced his withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal.

Merkel's point of view on the issue echoes the earlier statement of the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker, who noted on Thursday that Washington "had lost vigor, and because of it, in the long term, influence," suggesting that Europe should take over the US' role as global leader.

EU chief says Europe must 'replace the US' as world superpower as he attacks Trump over Iran deal and accuses America of turning its back on allies

EU chief Jean-Claude Juncker has attacked the US for turning its back on its allies and says Europe must take America's place as global leader after Donald Trump's decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal.

The EU Commission President said America 'no longer wants to cooperate' with other parts of the world and is turning away from friendly relations 'with a ferocity that can only surprise us.'

Trump has sparked fury in Tehran by withdrawing from the accord with politicians burning the US flag and the country's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warning that 'America can't do a damn thing'.

As European powers scrambled to salvage the agreement today, Juncker said it was up to the EU to take on the mantle of the US, adding: 'At this point, we have to replace the United States, which as an international actor has lost vigor, and because of it, in the long term, influence.'

Addressing Iran's government in a televised speech, Khamenei said: "We hear that you want to continue the nuclear deal with the three European countries. I don't have confidence in these three countries."

"If you don't succeed in obtaining a definitive guarantee - and I really doubt that you can - at that moment, we cannot continue like this," he said.

"If you want to conclude an agreement, obtain real guarantees, otherwise tomorrow they will do the same as the United States."

"In just a short period of time, the world's leading state sponsor of terror will be on the cusp of acquiring the world's most dangerous weapon.”

But European leaders quickly hit out at Mr Trump and in a joint statement, Theresa May, Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel labelled the decision a matter of “regret and concern” and would defy the US President in remaining committed to the deal.

Britain, France and Germany had made attempts to persuade the US President to preserve the deal - Mr Macron and Ms Merkel made trips to Washington over the past month, while Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson made a last-ditch trip over the weekend.

Iran nuclear deal dilemma: Six steps to World War Three

"The elimination of the symbolic nuclear agreement with Iran from 2015 would open a Pandora's box - this could mean war," Macron told the German newspaper Der Spiegel. European leaders used to reject the position of the United States on the subject. These days, however, they are ready to consider a few aspects that the deal does not embrace, such as, for example, the development of ballistic missiles - a weapon designed to deliver nuclear bombs to their targets.

Dmitry Abzalov, President of the Center for Strategic Communications, told Pravda.Ru that Donald Trump would most likely torpedo the Iran deal on Saturday. "Trump has an aversion to Iran, and Mueller's investigation brings to light a few of those close to him. Secondly, Israel's Netanyahu actively supports Donald Trump. The two politicians will try to take advantage of the Iranian issue to switch public attention to questions of foreign, rather than domestic policies," the expert told Pravda.Ru.

Will Serbia Hold NATO Responsible For Criminal Use Of Depleted Uranium?

The Republic of Serbia appears to be making moves that would ultimately open the door to holding NATO responsible for the significant spike in cancer illnesses and deaths which followed NATO’s bombing of Serbia with depleted uranium shells.

President of the Serbian Parliament Maja Gojkovic drafted a resolution in parliament that would establish a commission charged with investigating the impact of the NATO bombing in 1999 on the health of citizens and the environment, with particular emphasis on the effects caused by the use of depleted uranium shells.

Previously, the Italian parliament, recognized that NATO’s use of these nuclear waste tainted weapons were the primary cause of illness and death for Italian NATO soldiers in the occupied southern Serbian region of Kosovo. Serbian officials are in an active conversation with the Italians, whose findings may better inform any Serbian investigation.

Why Sweden doesn't keep stats on ethnicity and crime

Contemporary debate about immigration in Sweden often centres on the unusually high influx of refugees in the last decade, which is frequently claimed by the international far right to have sown chaos. Google's data shows that some of the searches connected to "Sweden immigration" that have increased most in the last five years are "Sweden crime rate" and "Sweden rape statistics".

While the domestic debate is more nuanced, migration remains a hot topic in the build-up to the forthcoming autumn general election, and crime in relation to immigration is a particularly big talking point.

It doesn't take much effort to find articles claiming to have the 'truth' about the relationship between immigrants or refugees and Swedish crime. Yet the real truth is that there is no up-to-date public data on the ethnic background of criminals in the country, with existing figures more than a decade old.

Kasselstrand says Sweden’s ‘multiculture is an impossibility and a total failure’. According to him It is not possible to combine widely different peoples in one country and expect good results.

“The historical experience of multicultural societies points to the opposite. Disagreements and conflicts, not a harmonious social life […] is the result of multiculturalism and mass immigration,” he said.

Hungary is one of the bloc’s largest beneficiary of so-called cohesion funds, which are designed to help bridge the gap between the Continent’s richer and poorer nations.

However, the European Commission’s new proposals for its post-2020 cohesion budget includes a series of conditions for eligibility, including rule of law compliance and applying more restrictions on how EU funds can be used.

The Commission proposed the introduction of a “conditionality” mechanism, which would allow Brussels to withdraw and even cut off funding to countries deemed not to be respecting the rule of law or the bloc’s fundamental visions.

EU congratulates killer of Gaza cancer patients

Last year, 54 Palestinians died waiting for Israeli permits to leave the occupied Gaza Strip for medical treatment.

Most of them were cancer patients.

Arguably, the one person most responsible for this horrifying toll is Israeli general Yoav Mordechai, the head of COGAT, the bureaucratic arm of Israel’s military occupation in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

That makes him in effect the military ruler of millions of Palestinians.

Establishment is mounting a Very Un-British Coup says LEO McKINSTRY

Every obstacle in the path was swiftly overcome, every problem quickly resolved. On January 1, 1973 our nation had joined the European Community, beginning the long process of subjugation to Brussels rule.

Today the position is exactly reversed over Brexit. Almost two years ago the electorate voted by a decisive margin to leave the European Union but since then the establishment has done all in its power to thwart the popular will.

In place of the eagerness that characterised the political class in the early 1970s towards European entry there has been only relentless negativity about British independence.

Brexit should be a golden chance to rebuild our sovereignty and nationhood yet that opportunity is being squandered by the wilful feebleness of the establishment. Every difficulty is now exaggerated or used as an excuse for more delay, more capitulation to Brussels.

Lavrov: Ukraine lost its independence

The Russian top diplomat comments on the situation in Ukraine

Ukraine has actually lost its independence and national economy due to the internal crisis provoked by some Western countries led by the US, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told Italy’s Panorama magazine.

"For many years, attempts were made to force Kiev to make a false choice, ‘either with us or against us,’ between the development of cooperation in the East or in the West, which has eventually resulted in the collapse of the Ukrainian statehood, which has never been particularly strong. The result as of today is the de facto loss of independence, people’s suffering, the collapse of the country’s economy, which had every opportunity to become one of Europe’s most stable and strong," he said.

According to Russia’s top diplomat, "a group of Western states led by the US who consider the entire world a sphere of their influence...">>>

US extended EU tariff exemption after 'fruitful discussions' – Commerce Secretary

The US postponed the introduction of steel and aluminum tariffs on the EU after “some potentially fruitful discussions about an overall reduction in trade tensions," Wilbur Ross, US Commerce Secretary, told CNBC. However, Ross said that Washington has no intention to grant protracted extensions, explaining that it “defeats the whole purpose.” The EU’s tariff exemption was to expire on Tuesday, but Donald Trump postponed the decision for another month. In March, the US President imposed a worldwide 25 percent tariff on steel imports and a 10 percent tariff on aluminum.

What Can be Done? Europe’s Acceptance of Washington’s Vassalage

It is up to Europe whether or not the Earth dies in nuclear Armageddon.

European governments do not realize their potential to save the world from Washington’s aggression, because the western Europeans are accustomed to being Washington’s vassal states since the end of World War 2, and the eastern and central Europeans have accepted Washington’s vassalage since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Vassalage pays well if all the costs are not counted.

EU condemns Abbas's 'unacceptable' remarks about Holocaust

The European Union's foreign service condemned remarks on the Holocaust by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas as "unacceptable," echoing criticism on Wednesday by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

In strikingly blunt language from Brussels, the European External Action Service said in a statement: "The speech Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas delivered on 30 April contained unacceptable remarks concerning the origins of the Holocaust and Israel's legitimacy.

"Such rhetoric will only play into the hands of those who do not want a two-state solution, which President Abbas has repeatedly advocated."

Nord Stream 3? Economic Analyst Explains Why Gazprom's Proposal is No Bluff

Last week, Gazprom deputy chairman Alexander Medvedev told Russian media that the gas giant was prepared to build yet another pipeline to Europe to compliment Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2. Rossiya Segodnya economics observer Dmitry Lekuh explains why the official's proposal is really a 'mathematical inevitability'.

Speaking to Rossiya-24, Medvedev noted that Gazprom has the confirmed gas reserves and transport infrastructure capabilities to quench Europe's energy needs. "If Europe tells us what it needs and is ready to sign the relevant contracts, I'm not ruling out that we might need new gas pipelines, like, for example, a Nord Stream 3," he said.

In EU-Wide Poll, Majority Think Migrant Integration ‘Unsuccessful’, Figure Rises to 73 Per Cent in Sweden

A European Commission poll has found that a strong majority of people in France, Germany, and Sweden believe the integration of migrants has failed in their country.

People in all 28 member states were asked: “Generally speaking, how successful or not is the integration of most immigrants living in [your country].”

Overall, across the open borders bloc, 55 per cent of people said integration it is going badly and 39 per cent said it had been a success, according to the survey commissioned by the European Union’s (EU) unelected executive branch.

In Sweden, the picture was bleak, with just 24 per cent of respondents saying they thought integration was going well, and a shocking 73 per cent saying it has gone badly.

Greece’s “Radical Left” Ruling Party Sells The Country’s Soul To Neo-Liberal Rothschild Bank

The French investment bank Rothschild plays an important role in Greece’s effort to get rid of the bonds of creditors, Frankfurter Allgemeine claimed on Sunday.

“When socialism can no longer help, bankers are called upon to take over. The leftist, populist Greek government, which had traditionally anti-capitalist slogans, recruited prominent capitalists as assistants in the fight against debt,” the newspaper quotes referring to the example of Goldman Sachs.

Return of the Migrant Crisis: Greece ‘Overwhelmed’ as Illegals Surge Across Turkish Land Border

Greece is being “overwhelmed” by illegal migrants surging across its land border with Turkey, with a local mayor warning the situation is “on the verge of spinning out of control”.

The country bore the brunt of the 2015 influx, which saw over 815,000 illegal migrants traverse the Aegean Sea in dangerous watercraft.

This figure was reduced to 30,000 in 2017 after the European Union persuaded the Turkish government to step up containment efforts following a multi-billion euro deal partly financed by the United Kingdom.

The major action then shifted from Greece to the so-called Central Mediterranean Route from Libya to Italy, but this, too, was brought under partial control in late 2017, after the Italian authorities began incentivising the Libyan coast guard to intercept smuggler-boats and cracked down on so-called “rescue” ships operated by pro-migration NGOs.

EU Commission Moves to Protect Whistleblowers After Cambridge Analytica Scandal

The European Commission on Monday proposed a new bill to strengthen whistleblower protection across EU member states and establish safe reporting channels in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica and the Panama Papers scandals, the press release said.

"Many recent scandals may never have come to light if insiders hadn't had the courage to speak out. But those who did took enormous risks. So if we better protect whistleblowers, we can better detect and prevent harm to the public interest such as fraud, corruption, corporate tax avoidance or damage to people's health and the environment. There should be no punishment for doing the right thing," European Commission's First Vice-President Frans Timmermans said, as quoted in the press release.

Sweden: Syrian Migrant Claims He Didn’t Know Sex With 12-Year-Old Was Illegal

A 17-year-old Syrian migrant was convicted of two counts of rape against a 12-year-old girl in a Swedish court this week, although he claimed he did not know that sex with a 12-year-old was illegal in the country.

The 17-year-old, who has been identified as a Syrian asylum seeker by Swedish journalist Joakim Lamotte, is said to have raped the 12-year-old twice on the same day last June.

However, after being convicted by the Uddevalla District Court this week he was sentenced to just six months of detention in a youth care facility and a 140,000 SEK (£11,729) fine, Expressen reports.

According to independent Swedish journalist Joakim Lamotte, the migrant, who came to Sweden in 2014, claimed that he did not know it was illegal to have sex with a girl under the age of 15 and said that the victim had told him she was 14 at the time.

Iran Deal: Trump 'Acts on Orders From Israeli Lobby in Washington' - Analyst
US President Donald Trump, at a meeting of his followers in Michigan on Saturday, suggested that his administration would do everything within its power to shift what the White House terms Washington DC's trade imbalance with the European Union, and hinted darkly that Americans must prepare for a bumpy and uncomfortable ride, according to RT.

In asserting that the EU was primarily formed to divert financial gains from the US, Trump promised that what he termed "disastrous trade deals" would stop, as he was going to personally "take on" the economic European powerhouse, as well as China, the largest economy in Asia and the second largest economy in the world.

The woman also wrote other posts that the prosecution said were “negative to Muslims and immigration.”

The pensioner was convicted for “breach of opinion against a public group” and will now have to pay a fine of 12,250 SEK (around $1500 dollars).

Populist’s Electoral Success Forcing Europe to Think Twice About New Mass-Migration Schemes

Germany has U-turned and blocked a new European Union (EU) mass migration scheme it once supported, because of the electoral success of the anti-mass migration AfD party, a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) has said.

The unelected European Commission is currently pushing through reforms to asylum and migration policies, including the forced relocation of refugees and a new so-called “Blue Card” scheme to bring in thousands more “skilled” migrants.

The Commission pitched the scheme in 2016, claiming there will be 756,000 unfilled ICT jobs in the bloc by 2020, which can be filled by migrants instead of training up Europeans.

Angela Merkel’s Germany initially backed the “Blue Card” mass migration scheme, being negotiated behind closed doors, but switch to blocking it soon after September’s federal elections, an MEP claims.
