Italy Seeks EU Help in African Boat People Crisis

Europe’s weakness in refusing to defend itself from a Camp-of-the-Saints-style invasion of diverse “refugees” continues to simmer. Around 350 African boaters arrived Tuesday on Italian territory, and the EU requires that the European country where fleebags land has to take them. Italy’s southern islands, particularly tiny Lampedusa, have been overwhelmed by the flood of Africans, some escaping the Arab Spring and others seeking a ready-made first-world lifestyle.

Unfortunately, European elites are too afflicted with liberal notions of virtue to see a civilization-threatening invasion when it is upon them. Perhaps Europe can absorb a million third-worlders per year, even with a bad economy, but it cannot survive 10 or 20 million annually, and there’s no reason why that number wouldn’t come if the dissatisfied of Africa see Europe putting out the welcome mat for everyone. Plus, Africa is on track to double in population over the next 40 years, so the pressure to flee is bound to increase.

Egypt, for example, is a very crowded 82 million persons, and the New York Times reported this week that disappointment in the nation’s political direction has convinced increasing numbers to leave. Naturally the attitude is one of immigration entitlement, that the millions who want to move somewhere better can do so, and the citizens of the target nation have no say in the matter.

Which they increasingly don’t, because the elites who run things have a different idea about national sovereignty.

In 2011 the Lampedusa people demanded and got assurances from the Italian government that the boatloads of Africans would stop and most would be repatriated to Tunisia, but now the problem is as bad as ever.

RT had a decent video piece about of the situation:

The IslamVersusEurope blog recently posted this item of “asylum seekers” on Sicily demanding that their claims be processed more quickly, which looks more like a riot than a plea for better service.

Here’s more from RT.com about Italy’s efforts to make Brussels get involved in sorting out the chaos by spreading the problem around.

Italy urges EU to share burden of migrant crisis, RT.com, October 23, 2013

Italy demands an urgent shakeup of Europe’s asylum policies, as it bears the brunt of a large-scale inflow of illegal migrants from the Middle East and Africa. A leaked draft EU summit statement, however, promises no radical steps until June next year.

Aseter, a young Ethiopian in Sicily, says she is lucky. She was on a refugee boat heading from Africa to Italy the same day another boat like hers capsized in the Mediterranean, killing more than 300 asylum-seekers.

She is now prepared to put her luck to test once again, by illegally crossing EU borders together with her two companions. She is not new to taking risks, as she had to first go by foot from Ethiopia to Sudan, then travel to Libya to finally take the most nerve-racking boat ride of her life.

“In Sicily we managed to avoid getting registered. It’s illegal but we need to go further north – there’s nothing here for us,” Aseter tells RT correspondent Egor Piskunov, while she hides her face from the camera.

Under EU regulation all newcomers must seek asylum in the country where they arrive. And under Italian law anyone avoiding registration is sent home.

That does not prevent newcomers from taking their chances of trying to stay unregistered until reaching an EU country with what seems to them better opportunities. Shiferaw Genene, President of Italian Association of the Ethiopian Community believes it’s only natural.

“When you arrive here [in Italy] they give you the very minimum,” Genene told RT. “There’s no jobs, no school and you sleep in the street for six months.

Italy is one of the worst European states in this regard.” 

Italy and Greece are the most affected by the influx of refugees fleeing conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa. And that puts huge pressure on their economies, already burdened by recession. Continue reading this article

Documentary Reveals Muslims’ Jihad Plans for America

When filmmaker Steve Emerson called his documentary “The Grand Deception” he was referring to pro-jihad groups in America which pretend to be civil rights advocates for Muslims, but in fact support the tyrannical rule of Islam worldwide with the US being one part.

Emerson appeared on Fox News recently, with informative clips from the film. He pointed out how effective the Islamic stealth strategy has been, insinuating itself into the highest levels of power in both Democrat and Republican administrations. The jihadists have even been successful in getting the FBI to remove instructional materials called “offensive to Islam” that were actually useful teaching aids for agents to understand the enemy.

In 2009, a gaggle of Muslims performed the up-butt salute at the US Capitol. Do they see it as a future mosque?

Of course, it is diverse immigration that has admitted Muslims into our nation creating this threat. Followers of Islam are the historic 1400-year enemies of Christians, Jews and western beliefs, who spread their religion by the sword — join or be killed. It was a big mistake in public policy to welcome enemies which should end now.

Rep. Ted Poe Flip-Flops Back to Borders and Sovereignty

In August, Ted Poe let it be known that he had switched positions to support the open-borders crowd, after a career of law enforcement as a judge and later authoring notable legislation to protect public safety, in particular forcing riffraff nations to accept their criminal deported aliens. Apparently, he thought his total one-eighty would be little noticed (see Rep. Ted Poe Hopes Switch to Amnesty Won’t Be a Problem).

Now he is back with another reversal and a weak excuse: he just noticed that the President has a winner-take-all approach to making deals with Congress. Whoa, who knew?

“The President has proven over the last few weeks that ‘negotiating’ means conservatives must give in and that it’s his way or no way,” Poe recently remarked to Breitbart.

Well, that’s a revelation!

Poe also stated, “Conservatives want to do what’s best for our nation.”

We’ll keep that quote in mind in case of another flip-flop to America-destroying amnesty.

Below, Rep. Poe back in his border-defending days (to which he has returned now he says).

More likely than a revelation about the President is that Poe’s constituents in Texas told him not to expect their votes next election. That’s just a wild guess on my part though.

At any rate, keep those calls and letters coming to squishy congressmen!

Exclusive: Obama Inspires GOP Congressman to Drop Immigration Reform, Breitbart.com, October 21, 2013

Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX), the vice chairman of the House Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security, has changed his mind and now opposes any efforts to grant amnesty to America’s at least 11 million illegal immigrants. Poe said his stance is a specifically a result of President Barack Obama’s style of dealing with congressional Republicans during the recent government shutdown and debt ceiling battles.

“The President has proven over the last few weeks that ‘negotiating’ means conservatives must give in and that it’s his way or no way,” Poe said in an email to Breitbart News. “In his opinion, there is no compromise, just intimidation with inflammatory rhetoric. The President is putting his political agenda ahead of what’s best for America.”

“He wants to do what’s best for his legacy,” the Congressman said of the President. “Conservatives want to do what’s best for our nation.”

Poe added that he thinks “there’s no question that our broken immigration system needs a lot of work.”

“That’s why conservatives will still work on individual bills, such as border security, interior enforcement, E-verify and filling our future labor needs,” Poe explained. “Future, temporary, foreign workers must not displace any American. Conservatives will not support a wrapped up present with amnesty inside. Amnesty, to quote the President, is not negotiable.”

Poe’s decision to turn against amnesty comes on the heels of Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID), a supporter of immigration reform, saying it would be “crazy” for House GOP leadership to negotiate with the Senate and President Obama on the Senate’s “Gang of Eight” immigration bill because Obama’s motives with it are not pure. Obama is using this debate to try to “destroy” the Republican Party, Labrador said. Continue reading this article

New York: Candidate Bill de Blasio Pledges Less Surveillance of Muslims

The liberal Democrat candidate who is the apparent front-runner for mayor of New York City has aroused a certain amount of concern over his statement that he would end the current level of normal scrutiny of Muslims by the NYPD.

The candidate has been using his squishy public safety stance to appeal to Muslim voters, who apparently don’t care about the place being blown up. The number of Allah worshippers is estimated to be anywhere from 800,000 to 1 million, so there are votes to be had by pandering against the general good.

As a young man, de Blasio traveled to Nicaraugua to help the Marxist Sandinistas, so that background is a hint about where he stands.

Since 9/11, the top priority of policing has moved to prevention of terror rather than arresting the perps afterward. That means surveillance and infiltration, which are not the most comfortable ways to pursue public safety in a free society, but diverse immigration has admitted many unfriendlies into our communities and now spying is what we must do.

Of course, the real solution is to end Muslim immigration and unwelcome the rest, since admitting potential enemies is bad public policy, period. There is nothing to be gained by Muslim immigration, only diverse new ways to decrease our freedom.

De Blasio Tells Muslims He’ll End Broad NYPD Spying If Elected, CBS New York, October 16, 2013

Democratic mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio told a group of Muslim supporters Wednesday that they won’t have to live in fear of being under constant surveillance if he’s elected mayor.

As WCBS 880′s Jim Smith reported, de Blasio, the front-runner in the Nov. 5 general election, said that, on his watch, NYPD surveillance tactics would only be authorized to follow up on specific leads and that the police force would be under the supervision of a new inspector general.

“The efforts of surveillance have to be based on specifically specific information, and obviously you need to go through a careful vetting process,” de Blasio said during a rally at Columbus Park in Downtown Brooklyn.

Based on internal NYPD reports and interviews with officials involved in the programs, the NYPD has conducted wholesale surveillance of entire Muslim neighborhoods, chronicling daily life including where people eat, pray and get their hair cut, according to a series of reports by The Associated Press. Police also reportedly infiltrated dozens of mosques and Muslim student groups.

In addition, the NYPD secretly labeled entire mosques as terrorism organizations, a designation that allows police to use informants to record sermons and spy on imams, often without specific evidence of criminal wrongdoing, according to the AP. Continue reading this article

More Abuse Charges against Amnesty Radio Mouthpiece Piolin

In Los Angeles, Spanish-language radio star Piolin Sotelo has been a long-time amnesty loudmouth. When Barack Obama barnstorms the city, he has frequently dropped by the studio to visit his pal Piolin and promise a big legalization law for the listeners real soon.

The ugly truth about Piolin has been accumulating for a while, particularly since last July when Univision fired him. You knew the charges were substantial for Univision to release one of its most popular Spanish chatterboxes, a man who personally shares the illegal alien experience.

He allegedly used his staff to forge letters of support for an amnesty campaign, which was doubtless a big strain on them. More serious were the sexual abuse charges, details of which are coming out.

Also, it just looks bad when a media face of the amnesty movement is shown to be an office dictator with shocking habits like humping and biting subordinates. At the height of his power, Piolin was ranked as among the 100 Most Powerful People in Southern California by the LA Times. The late Ted Kennedy was celebrated in an appearance on the radio show — perhaps he and Piolin swapped hints off-mike about fun things to do with underlings.

And make no mistake, Spanish-language media is vital in organizing the anti-sovereignty movement of foreign nationals. It’s too bad Piolin’s staffers didn’t pipe up earlier.

Former ‘Piolin’ staffers allege they suffered years of abuse, LA Times, October 19, 2013

Legal wrangling between Spanish-language radio star Eduardo “Piolín” Sotelo and six former staff members dialed up this week with new allegations of harassment and boorish behavior.

The former staffers worked with Sotelo when he hosted his wildly popular “Piolín por la Mañana” program on Univision Radio. However, the staffers were let go long before Sotelo’s program was abruptly canceled by the Spanish-language media conglomerate on July 22.

Sotelo sued the group of ex-staff members in Los Angeles County Superior Court in late August, alleging they had banded together to try to extort as much as $4.9 million from him. In response, lawyers for the group filed a lengthy motion on Oct. 15, asking a judge to strike Sotelo’s lawsuit.

Friday marked Sotelo’s return to radio with a new four-hour program on SiriusXM called “El Show de Piolín.” After Univision severed ties with Sotelo, SiriusXM leaped to sign him to be the centerpiece of the company’s effort to attract more Latino listeners.

Sotelo, 42, now is broadcasting from a new SiriusXM recording studio on Wilshire Boulevard.

In their motion, the six former workers alleged that as Sotelo’s Univision career began to soar — around 2006 — his behavior toward staff members turned increasingly abusive. He allegedly humiliated workers by calling them derogatory names, licking and biting them, rubbing his body against theirs, and grabbing his genitals.

“Sotelo bit two of the staffer defendants so hard that they had visible marks on their shoulders for days,” the motion said.

The group tolerated the alleged behavior, the filing said, because they feared they would lose their jobs if they complained. Continue reading this article

Austrian Immigrant Schwarzenegger Thinks He Should Be President (of America)

The Constitution, our nation’s founding legal blueprint, is increasingly regarded as a list of outmoded suggestions from dead white men. Sovereignty and laws are thought by many elites to be unfriendly vestiges of the old America which has been hung up on legal trifles.

Today’s example is former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who once claimed to be a conservative. Now he thinks that the Constitution’s requirement that a Presidential candidate be a natural born citizen is too restrictive. Perhaps he thinks that Barack Obama’s squishy credentials provide him an opening.

BTW, I have no doubt that Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii, but his father was a temp visitor from Kenya (who was a foreign student and not even an immigrant), thereby making junior a non-natural-born citizen. At least in my non-lawyer understanding of the more stringent requirement in the Constitution for President.

Interestingly, Schwarzenegger has been sniffing around this issue for some time. In 2008, powerful TV news star Tim Russert remarked he would change the Constitution through his mighty journalist powers so Arnold could be President. As I quoted in a blog titled, Russert Had Big Plans for His Buddy Schwarzenegger:

Schwarzenegger said Tim Russert, the recently deceased host of “Meet the Press” whom Shriver had called her best friend, told him if he ever chose to run for president he would help. “When I ran for governor, he called me and said, ‘If you make that, if you win, then I will take care of the rest,’” Schwarzenegger recalled. “I said what are you talking about? And he said, ‘I will get you to run for president. I will make sure that we change the Constitution.’ It never happened. But anyway, I miss him very much.”

Schwarzenegger has been trying to revive his movie career as an action star, but the foray hasn’t been very successful for the 65-year-old former actor-politician. So perhaps the bored Arnold figures he might as well run for President as another item for his resume.

He isn’t expressing the policies he would implement as Chief Executive for the good of the country, just that he would like to Be the President. And anyway, he’s dreaming if he thinks Americans would vote for him after he broke up his marriage with Maria Shriver by bonking the Mexican housekeeper, producing an extramarital kid.

Arnold lobbies for White House run, Page Six, October 18, 2013

Action star and former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has been lobbying for support to change the law to allow him to run for president in 2016, Page Six has exclusively learned.

We’re told Ahnold has been openly talking about his political ambitions while in New York to promote his new movie with Sylvester Stallone, “Escape Plan.”

One source said: “Schwarzenegger has been talking openly about working on getting the constitutional rules changed so he can run for president in 2016. He is ready to file legal paperwork to challenge the rules.”

Arnie was born in Austria, and the US Constitution prevents foreign-born citizens from holding the nation’s top job. Any amendment to the Constitution must be approved by two-thirds majority in the House and the Senate.

But Arnold, who became a US citizen in 1983, still could mount a legal challenge. In 2010, he appeared on the ‘Tonight Show,’ and was asked by Jay Leno if he would make a White House run if the law were changed.

Schwarzenegger replied, “Without any doubt.” With America becoming more diverse, it is not clear what would happen if Arnie or any other foreign-born naturalized citizen decided to run.

Columbia University Law School professor Michael Dorf, an expert in constitutional law, said about the Governator’s case in 2007, “The law is very clear, but it’s not 100 percent clear that the courts would enforce that law rather than leave it to the political process.” Continue reading this article

San Francisco Amnesty Extremists Block Deportation Bus

In an act of escalated lawbreaking that mimicked a recent Arizona deportation blockage, immigration anarchists sat down in front of a bus filled with illegal aliens being deported from San Francisco.

Unsurprisingly, local media treated the behavior positively, with no opposing view, even though the city is familiar with terrible crimes committed by non-deported illegal alien criminals. In 2008, Salvadoran gang member Edwin Ramos killed Tony Bologna and his two sons when he mistook them for rival gangsters. Ramos had been actively protected as a violent offender by the city’s sanctuary policy.

Even given the recent history of foreigner crime, San Francisco media did not use the incident to point out the benefit to public safety that comes from deporting illegal alien criminals.

As the article notes, no arrests were made because of the city sanctuary policy.

Activists Block Bus In Protest Near San Francisco Immigration Office, CBS San Francisco, October 18, 2013

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Dozens of protesters surrounded a bus believed to be filled with immigrants slated for deportation at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office in San Francisco, a protest organizer said Thursday.

The protesters included dozens of undocumented immigrants and immigrants’ rights advocates who rallied for the expansion of a national movement to pressure President Barack Obama to halt immigrant deportations, according to Jon Rodney, a spokesman for the California Immigrant Policy Center.

“We are not going to wait for Congress anymore. We are not going to wait for Obama. This is a humanitarian crisis, two million people deported in 5 years,” protester Hairo Cortez told KPIX 5. Continue reading this article

Hamburg Africans Protest Refugee Treatment

In Germany, there’s a group of refugee demanders with a website called Lampedusa in Hamburg. The front page photo shows a banner reading, “We did not survive the NATO war in Libya to die on the streets of Hamburg,” which is kind of a double-down statement of Screw the West for ousting the dictator and now give us free stuff in Germany.

Or something.

They put on a noisy protest the other day. It seemed more about intimidation than friendly appeal.

The RT.com YouTube posting contained additional text:

Germany: “Lampedusa in Hamburg” sees hundreds protest migrant treatment, October 16, 2013

Hundreds of refugees and activists of the “Lampedusa in Hamburg” group took the streets of Hamburg on Wednesday to protests against the alleged unlawful treatment of migrants by the Hamburg Senate.

Protesters marched from the main station to the city hall and back in a 2-hour demonstration to also show their support to the victims of the recent shipwrecks occurred off the Italian island of Lampedusa.

Clashes erupted Tuesday night in Hamburg after around 500 protesters demonstrating in front of the squatted theatre “Roten Flora” reportedly threw stones and bottles to police, who used pepper spray and batons on protesters.

Obama Plans Amnesty to Follow End of Government Shutdown

The President’s legacy countdown is moving along, and he would doubtless like to use a massive amnesty to put tens of millions of future Democrats in the pipeline to assure a leftward slant of Washington forever.

Most hispanics (who account for three-quarters of illegal aliens) are culturally inclined to support big government and do so for generations. They are natural liberals.

By the way, it is interesting that the President found time on Tuesday during a government crisis to chat with Spanish-language Univision, which keeps its viewers informed about issues of interest to Mexicans.

Obama to push immigration reform ‘day after’ budget deal, The Hill, October 15, 2013

President Obama vowed Tuesday that he would pursue an immigration reform vote in the House the “day after” Congress reaches an agreement to reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling.

“Once that’s done, you know, the day after — I’m going to be pushing to say, call a vote on immigration reform,” Obama told Univision’s Los Angeles affiliate. “And if I have to join with other advocates and continue to speak out on that, and keep pushing, I’m going to do so because I think it’s really important for the country. And now is the time to do it.”

The president reiterated his claim that the only thing holding back passage of the Senate’s immigration bill is “Speaker Boehner not willing to call the bill on the floor of the House of Representatives.”

Earlier this month, House Democrats introduced their own version of an immigration bill in an attempt to spur Republican action after it appeared that momentum had stalled for immigration reform. The bill largely mirrors the Senate effort, while stripping out some border security provisions added to win Senate GOP votes. Continue reading this article

Immigration Anarchists Demand Obama End Deportations

In Arizona, open-borders extremists have escalated their tactics from noisy rallies to physical confrontation with law enforcement. By blocking deportation buses, they have told the President that they do not recognize American sovereignty or the rule of law, and they demand that he act according to their radical aim to end immigration enforcement.

Below, amnesty pests chained themselves to deportation buses in Tucson, October 11. Operation Streamline has been one of the most effective enforcement programs.

The language of the activists, e.g. “to put our bodies on the line,” is that of revolutionaries, not of concerned citizens.

Taking Immigration Law Into Their Own Hands: Protesters Form Human Chain To Stop Deportation Bus, Fox News Latino, October 11, 2013

A group of immigrant advocates in Tucson, Ariz. decided on Friday to try to take immigration laws into their own hands, vowing to stop deportations for a day by stopping a bus carrying detainees  and blocking people from entering the parking lot of the federal courthouse.

It was the latest protest by advocates in Tucson, who are rallying against the record number of immigrants deported under President Barack Obama’s administration. About 1.5 million people were deported under Obama’s first term in office from 2008 to 2012 – including an unprecedented 409,849 last year.

On Friday, a dozen demonstrators used chains and pipes to lock themselves to the wheels of a bus carrying immigrants to court. Continue reading this article

Britain Poll: Two-Thirds Want Drastic Action to Reduce Immigration

Around the world, most societies don’t care for immigration, particularly when there’s too much of it. Global polls from Ipsos and Pew Research have illustrated the normal dislike of foreigner diversity. Human nature is deeply tribal, dictating that we all like our own group the best and are somewhat suspicious of those who don’t share out language, culture and values.

Mass immigration is a favored project of elites, who like the reduced cost of labor and see exploitable third-worlders as potential household help.

Immigration is even less popular when historic enemies (e.g. Muslims) have been permitted to enter by the millions. London is no longer majority white and some areas have been declared sharia zones where infidels better behave according to allah in their own country. Plus there has been serious terrorism, like the 2005 London bombings, and appalling crime, particularly the sexual targeting of young English girls by Muslim gangs.

There have been recent murmurs from the British government that it would toughen up against illegal aliens, though actual seriousness remains to be seen. Not a minute too soon either, since the EU requires the free entry of Romanians and Bulgarians later this year.

The graphic below from the recent Sky News poll is of rather poor design, since it’s hard to read the important details. The 67% part says: “Take drastic action” The UK population is already too large and the government should take drastic action now to reduce migration.

Immigration: Britons Want ‘Drastic Action’, Sky News, October 13, 2013

The Home Secretary has insisted the Government is tackling immigration after a Sky News poll revealed a demand for “drastic action”.

Theresa May told Sky News steps were already being taken to tighten rules on migrants’ access to benefits as she noted the findings of the survey.

It found more than two thirds of the British public believe the UK population is too large and want the Government to go further.

Some 67% of people questioned said the coalition’s attempt to reduce net migration to 100,000 a year was not sufficient and that more should be done.

More than a quarter of those polled (27%) believe the wave of immigration Britain has experienced in the last decade has brought no positive benefit to the nation.

And more than half (52%) say they will be more likely to vote for a party that promises to “significantly” reduce the level of migration. Continue reading this article

Russians Riot over Muslim Immigrant Crime in Moscow

Russians have not been celebrating the increased Muslim diversity in their nation. Jihadist terror has struck hard there, notably in the Beslan school massacre of 186 schoolchildren and the Moscow theater hostage crisis, both attacks committed by hostile Chechen Muslims.

The city of Moscow has one to two million Muslim residents who block streets by the thousands on their Allah holidays and they intimidate daily to force Islam on Russians. The breakup of the Soviet Union has accelerated the influx and the accumulation over the years has been brutal.

The RT.com video below begins with the announcer describing the reason locals are angry over a recent murder, “An uncontrolled flow of illegal migrants has turned the neighborhood into a crime center.” It’s remarkable there are not more riots over nation-changing immigration invasions.

The written report from RT similarly notes unhappiness with diversity-fueled crime.

Over 300 detained after anti-migrant riot in southern Moscow, RT.com, October 13, 2013

Moscow police said they detained some 300 people during the mass rioting in a southern district of the city. A mixed crowd of nationalists and locals attacked a warehouse run by natives of the Caucasus, blaming a migrant for the fatal stabbing of a local. [. . .]

The violent scenes came after a similar rampage took place at a nearby shopping center, where the rioters had originally gathered. The outraged crowd demanded that the police find the killer, allegedly a man from the Caucasus or Central Asia, and clamp down on illegal migration in the area.

The locals also lashed at the the authorities, accusing them of covering the wave of migrant crime. [. . .]

Even the Associated Press report mentioned the Muslim angle, although with no context.

Moscow stabbing death sets off street riots, AP, October 13, 2013

The stabbing death of an ethnic Russian man has ignited anger in Moscow against people from the Caucasus, with demonstrators breaking into a shopping center and storming a vegetable warehouse Sunday evening. Police detained hundreds of people.

The man was believed to have been killed by a native of the North Caucasus, a region in southern Russia where the people are predominantly Muslim. Caucasus natives work in the shopping center and at many vegetable markets around the Russian capital. [. . .]
