The Coming Migration out of Sub-Saharan Africa
National Review ^ | August 8, 2019 | Christopher Caldwell

Posted on 08/14/2019 7:06:01 AM PDT by C19fan

Almost the entire population of Italy, it seems, spent the last week of June watching a boat arrive from across the Mediterranean. It was the Sea-Watch 3, a Netherlands-registered ship funded by progressive philanthropists and captained by Carola Rackete, a 31-year-old German climate-change activist. Rackete radioed that she was carrying 42 African refugees rescued at sea who were in desperate health. Italian interior minister Matteo Salvini holds that such ships rendezvous with traffickers just off the Libyan coast, and are really less interested in rescuing sailors than in transporting illegal immigrants to Europe en masse. “Taxis,” he has called them. And indeed, Rackete had been doodling about at the edge of Italy’s territorial waters for several days, charting a course less consistent with any health emergency than with a wish to land her human cargo in the European Union, where it is easy to apply for political asylum and where even those whose applications are rejected are almost never deported. Since his Lega party began sharing power in a populist coalition a year ago, Salvini’s decision to close Italy’s ports to such ships has made him the country’s most popular politician by a mile — and arguably, though he is still only a cabinet minister, the leader of the Western European political Right.

Money quote:

Smith begins by laying out some facts. Africa is adding people at a rate never before seen on any continent. The population of sub-Saharan Africa alone, now about a billion people, will more than double to 2.2 billion people by mid-century

As Sub-Saharan Africa becomes richer, that will give people enough resources to finance an attempt to head to Europe.

Europe might be the main destination but many of these people will attempt to come to America.

The woman is a smuggler, nothing more.

So arrest her.

The Camp of the Saints doesn’t need to be anything but a cautionary tale.

We certainly cannot arrest smugglers here either. After democrat leaders escorted criminals across the border... every smuggler should be appealing right now.

80% of the men in sub-Sahara Africa are unemployed. About 20% of those who leave for Europe die enroute.

Tow the boats back to Africa. Sink the boats. Shoot the captain on site for high-seas piracy and human trafficking.

This is a modern day slave trade. Gangsters and a few radical politicians dealing in human misery, and creating a huge burden on society - all for their own personal profit.

The trip from Africa to Europe becomes possible when a young man can assemble a stake of about $2,000. Once he does, there is no better investment for him or his village than striking out for Europe.

Same logic as saving up money to buy a gun to rob people of what THEY'VE earned.

ITALY BACKSTORY----The new mayor of the "migrant-infested global village" in southern Italy's rural Calabria got elected with the support of nationalist Matteo Salvini's anti-migrant Lega party. Once considered a bunch of bumpkins, they are now in the driver's seat.

LESSON LEARNED THE MAYOR SAID: "We will welcome refugees again, but we can't have 500 to 600 asylum seekers in a town with 1,500 residents. The problem is that we had too many migrants and we lost our initial spirit of openness. A whole economic system developed with the migrants, but without making the village dynamic again... The model destroyed itself."


"German director Wim Wenders made a documentary in 2010 featuring the leftist mayor and the refugees, but Lucano was last year placed under house arrest for allegedly setting up fake marriages to help foreign women stay in the country after their asylum applications were rejected. ........

"They were fighting among themselves, they didn't want the crucifix, or the creche," Falchi said of the migrants.
"It's not racism, it's just that this is our home. We welcome them and then they make problems."


The first sign things were not going well for the invading migrants was in 2016 when an 'Ethnic Food Ban' was
launched by the Shakespearean city of Verona, which has World Heritage Site status. Verona banned the opening of any new restaurants that offer mostly “ethnic” or deep-fried food.

While the continent is able to sustain 2.2 billion people easily, African countries can not.

That’s why there will NOT be 2.2 billion people by mid century.

Africans crowding the US southern border say they are fleeing sub-Saharan Africa "in fear."
<><>The "impoverished" Afrians pay smugglers to take them through Niger and Libya and across the Mediterranean Sea to Europe.
<><> Others apply through the United Nations to be resettled as US refugees.


h/t diogeneslamp---Free Republic reported 35,000 Africans crossing South America to get to the US border.
Appears someone is organizing and paying for this assault against us.

African migrants newly arrived at our southern border flash ‘rolls of $100 bills’
American Mirror ^ | June 16, 2019 | Kyle Olson / FR Posted by yesthatjallen (Video at link)

The “poor huddled masses” coming across the southern border may not be so poor after all. Swiss journalist Urs Gehriger recently visited African migrants who breached the border and hung out on the streets of San Antonio, Texas, waiting to go elsewhere in the country, and he met hostility from people who didn’t want to share details about their experiences, conflicted each other, and had rolls of $100 bills. In a recording played on Fox News, Gehriger asks a migrant from Congo how she got to America. She refused to say.

As Gehriger continued to ask simple questions, he said they backtracked and “were not answering at all.” “They wouldn’t tell me anything about how they got here, and then they started to get aggressive and they were contradicting each other,” he told Laura Ingraham. “One said they ran through the forest, and another said no, there was no forest, and they were actually arguing among themselves,” Gehriger said. He said they started to get “aggressive” after questions about money and help.

Gehriger believes the illegals were coached on giving answers to authorities. “I had the impression that somebody told them not to speak about it,” and acting like “now we’re here, you have to help us, give us money.” “What I found from an aid worker there, they actually do have money. Quite a few of them, because he spotted them under a tree, right in front of the shelter, counting a roll of money with hundred dollar bills,” Gehriger told Ingraham. Hundreds of migrants Congo and Angola were transported to San Antonio the week before, and city officials say they received no warning from the feds that they were coming. KENS published a story showing dozens of people milling around downtown, saying they arrived at the southern U.S. border by way of Ecuador. ETC...


Africans jump the border----seen holding wads of 100 dollar bills?

Its likely their Third World govt's are paying the freight b/c the govt honchos cash in bigtime from remittances of the US gravy train tax dollars.

RFERENCE Sen Grassley expressed his concerns about the process by which Congress was allowed to view letters inappropriately restrict the scope of the FBI’s investigation, and that the FBI inexplicably agreed to destroy the laptops knowing that the contents were the subject of Congressional subpoenas and preservation letters. “These limitations would necessarily have excluded, for example, any emails from Cheryl Mills to Paul Combetta in late 2014 or early 2015 directing the destruction or concealment of federal records.


TALKING POINTS Brian Pagliano, Hillary's personal IT in her email mess, protected Hillary bigtime, then disappeared, only to reappear as a "contractor" in Hillary's State Dept. What does he do there besides cash US govt checks?

Who else did Hillary make a "contractor." Are they cashing US govt checks for no-show jobs? Chelsea, Bill, Huma, Sid Blumenthal, Lanny Davis, Eric Holder, Eric Schneiderman, Valerie Jarrett, Michele Obama, her mother, Hillary's campaign crew?

NOTE: It’s an old trick politicians use-—hand-picking people and putting them on several govt payrolls. Long after you think they’re gone, they’re still cashing in.

Taxpayers demand to see their correspondence, emails, snail mails, hard drives, wire-transfers, text files, offshore banking activity, and the like.

ITEM——Demand to see govt reports of all tax dollars outlay to the aforementioned especially to Cheryl Mills.

"a racist, a xenophobe, a conspiracy theorist, and a rightist"

Such ad hominem attacks merely demonstrate the scorn of truth--truth for its own sake--and the free exchange of honest ideas that characterizes the decadence of Western Civilization.

There was a time when ideas were held paramount, when their free exchange in unfettered conversation was the ideal, when students were encouraged to think for themselves and challenge the contentions of their teachers!

What happened?

Western Civilization in its decadent phase held the opposite of all this as its standard. Unwelcome ideas became heresy and sometimes provoked violence. Ad hominem attacks and other fallacies of logic assaulted those whose ideas were unwelcome. The free exchange of ideas was crushed by mob rule. The search for truth--truth for its own sake--was lost, and not only lost, but oppressed, truth-seekers persecuted and even killed.

Such is the decadence of Western Civilization.

It's not a new story. It's an old one. Old, sad, and horrifying.

Particularly sad and horrifying because Western Civilization is unique in the history of the world.

Its gifts to the world are priceless.

The article mentioned mentioned that the pirate ship “broke through a wall of Italian Coast Guard vessels” and the first thing I though of was “Do they not carry live ammunition anymore? Or did they ever?”

By 2070, Nigeria will be the 3rd most populous country in the world, and still growing in 2100... Almost a billion by then.

Watch here:

Top 20 Countries by Population (1950 to 2100) - The Most Populous Countries in The World

the territory encompassing Nigeria isn’t that big. The other most populous countries, like China, India, the USA, and Indonesia are large, land-wise. Where will all the Nigerians go? What will they do? How will they find food? Water? Jobs?

Also, Pakistan is going to grow much larger, as well as many other African countries.

Real Soon Now, the migrants will overload the European social service systems. When that happens, Europe will experience rioting and civil unrest at a level it had not seen before.

At some point, we come to a limit of how many people with no viable job skills we can support.
