    In 2016, Poland issued 586,000 first residence permits to nationals of non–European Union countries. Poland issued more such permits that year than did any other EU member-state except Britain—and more than Germany (505,000), which has more than double Poland’s population. The vast majority of these non-EU migrants have come from the former Soviet Union, especially from Ukraine, a nation plagued by war, poverty, and corruption. In late 2017, 1.45 million Ukrainians were working legally in Poland. In a country of 38 million, that amounts to nearly 4 percent of the population, and between 4 and 6 percent of the workforce....

    The ruling party in Poland moved to outmaneuver the European Union’s attempts to stop the Law and Justice Party’s judicial reform, what it says is an attempt to remove communist influence from the Polish court system.

    Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has announced his intention to form a grand alliance of populists from across Europe ahead of next year’s European Union parliamentary elections. The populist leader of the League (Lega), which formed an anti-establishment coalition earlier this year with the Five Star Movement (M5S), made his comments on Friday, saying that he wanted to unite the populist parties to challenge the establishment parliamentary groups, Kronen Zeitung reports. “I want to unite the parties that will form the new majority in the European Parliament, the parties in Austria, the Netherlands, Sweden, France, and Germany,” Salvini said.

    Rejects 'migrants-for-money' deal in interview with Bild(ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, JULY 20 - Libya is staunchly against the idea of the EU building facilities in the country to house migrants that the EU does not want, Libyan Prime Minister Fayez al-Serraj told the German daily Bild in an interview. He added that the country would not sign agreements with the EU to take in migrants in exchange for money, either. Al-Serraj said in the interview that he was surprised that Europe did not want to receive migrants but was at the same time asking Libya to take in hundreds of thousands....

    Pathos ^ | June 24, 2016 | June 24, 2016
    Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI predicted the collapse of the European Union. I do not mean that he declared it grandly (or even authoritatively). Rather, through his books, articles, and quite a few sermons, he delivered a general syllogism: I. Any unity rooted in mere economic interest is a precarious one. II. The EU is a fundamentally monetary union (without the roots required to sustain genuine human community). III. The EU is precarious. Europe, and, by extension, the Western world, has only ever come close to unity by virtue of a common creed. In Europe: Today and Tomorrow, Benedict roots the...
  • Daily Show host Trevor Noah joked that Africa won the World Cup. French ambassador not happy.

    After France triumphed Sunday in the FIFA World Cup, “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah was ready to celebrate. “Africa won the World Cup! Africa won the World Cup!” he sang, before joking that “you don’t get that tan by hanging out in the south of France.” Noah was recognizing the multiethnic background of France’s team. It was a joke you might expect from Noah, a South African native and the son of a white father and black mother. But as Noah informed an audience recently in between scenes while filming his Comedy Central show, Gérard Araud, France’s ambassador to the...
  • EU's Record $5 Bil 'Antitrust' Fine On Google Is Really Just More Anti-U.S. Protectionism

    IBD ^ | 07/20/2018
    In what has now become a tiresome routine, European Union "Competition Commissioner" Margrethe Vestager has once again slapped an American company with a massive fine for the heinous crime of out-competing EU companies. The EU complains about U.S. tariffs, but this move to punish Google with a $5 billion antitrust fine is straight up protectionism. "Stop this behavior," Vestager told the firm. What behavior is that? Giving consumers ever-more options for their tablets, phones and computers at a lower price? The fine, after all, is for "abusing the dominance of its Android mobile operating system." The argument is that by...

    It’s #FLOTUSFriday and on any other planet the media would still be talking about the vision of loveliness that was our FLOTUS during her and the President’s 7-day European trip. But because we live in America, where it has been established unequivocally that at least half of us - and the entire media - are clinging to sanity by a very thin thread, they will continue to talk treason, impeachment and court intrigue instead. It must be exhausting to be a Democrat.Bonus shot: Melania at Microsoft in the UK:I’ve got appointments all day, so have at it troops.Posted from: MOTUS...

    American Thinker ^ | 07/19/2018 | Ed Straker
    Europe is very good at regulating.  Less so at creating.  That's why Europe has fined Google five billion dollars for allegedly monopolistic behavior related to Google's Android operating system on phones and tablet devices while failing to produce continental alternatives of its own. European authorities fined Google a record $5.1 billion on Wednesday for abusing its power in the mobile phone market and ordered the company to alter its practices, in one of the most aggressive regulatory actions against American technology giants and one that may force lasting changes to smartphones. The European Union's antitrust fine of 4.34 billion euros was almost double...

    The European Union says it is already preparing measures to retaliate against the United States if President Donald Trump puts tariffs on imported cars and auto parts. The auto industry is a big employer and exporter in Europe, and the new tariffs could hit the region hard, as well as consumers and manufacturers in the U.S., where prices would rise. ...snip For Europe, there is a lot at stake as companies like BMW, Daimler, Volkswagen, and Fiat Chrysler send $46.6 billion worth of vehicles every year to the U.S. Some 13.3 million people, or 6.1 percent of the employed population...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has said there are "forces" at work that are trying to hamper an improvement in U.S.-Russia relations. Commenting on his summit with President Donald Trump in Helsinki, Finland, on Monday, Putin said, "We see that there are forces in the United States that are prepared to casually sacrifice Russian-U.S. relations, to sacrifice them for their ambitions in the course of an internal political battle in the United States," Reuters reported. Speaking after meeting Russian diplomats at the foreign ministry in Moscow, Putin added that "those forces are powerful" and that they were trying to "disown the...

    Today’s blog is a little bit ‘out there’ so be forewarned. The EU Parliament Building has a shocking similarity to the Tower of Babel of numerous ancient cultures, which I hope to prove on the balance of evidence was intentional, despite EU protestations to the contrary. This can only lead to a deeper discussion of not only why they would wish this to be the case, but what their intentions for Europe are, and what ideology drives them. You will be shocked at what you are about to discover. Let’s take our first step down the rabbit-hole.

    Top White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said the administration expects a significant trade offer to come from the European Union soon. In an interview at CNBC's Delivering Alpha conference in New York on Wednesday, Kudlow said a lot of discussions are being held with individual countries. EU President Jean-Claude Juncker is coming to Washington next week, Kudlow said. "We will be in discussions," he said. "I am told he's bringing a very important free trade offer." Kudlow added he couldn't confirm that.

    The Guardian ^ | Jul 2018 | Pippa Crerar
    Theresa May has defended Donald Trump’s approach to last week’s Nato summit, claiming it made all the difference in encouraging European allies to “step up” their defence spending. The US president left the Brussels talks in disarray after setting a January deadline for other alliance members to increase defence spending and hinting that the US may quit Nato if they failed to do so. For the second year in a row, Trump caused turmoil at a Nato summit, criticising the Germans, turning up late for a meeting, ignoring the issues on the table and securing an emergency discussion on spending....

    Europe must turn back the boats, the Czech Republic has said, warning the current approach of resettling migrants across the continent is the “road to hell”, and making illegal immigration worse. Prime Minister Andrej Babiš restated his nation’s position of not taking any third world migrants from other EU nations after Italy asked fellow bloc members to take a share of a batch of hundreds picked up by Brussels border force Frontex in the Mediterranean on Saturday. “[Like other European leaders], I received a copy of the letter from Prime Minister [Giuseppe] Conte, … in which he asks the EU...

    BEIJING (Reuters) - China could open its economy if it so wished, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said on Monday, with the European Union calling on countries to avoid a trade war even as pressure mounts on Beijing over its industrial policies. Playing host to Juncker and European Council President Donald Tusk, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang stressed the need to uphold free trade and multilateralism as the United States and China become increasingly mired in a trade dispute, with no sign of negotiations on the horizon. U.S. President Donald Trump has warned he may ultimately impose tariffs on more than...

    "The French Suicide" ("Le suicide français") is a book published by the author Éric Zemmour in October 2014. Just one year later, on November 13, 2015 in Paris, a horror took place at the Bataclan Theater, when three terrorists fired into the crowd during a concert, murdered 130 people, and injured 413. Some of the victims had been tortured. The French population reacted as usual: shock and horror quickly gave way to resignation and submission. Flowers, candles and teddy bears were placed at the scene of the attacks. The government promised to act, but did almost nothing. A ceremony was...

    Coming off a contentious NATO summit and a trip to the U.K. in which he seemed to undercut the government of America's closest ally, President Trump took aim at another Western institution just days before his high-stakes meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. In an interview with "CBS Evening News" anchor Jeff Glor in Scotland on Saturday, President Trump named the European Union -- comprising some of America's oldest allies -- when asked to identify his "biggest foe globally right now." "Well, I think we have a lot of foes. I think the European Union is a foe, what they...

    I travel to Europe every other summer. My mother is Italian and she spends about 6 months out of the year in Southern Italy. She comes from a village nestled in the mountains in South-Central Italy, in the Puglia Province. In recent years, she has indicated that the mass migration of foreigners has changed the make-up of the province -- more crime, more drugs, more trash and more people wandering about, homeless. Crime in her little hamlet had increased by 70%! I told her that I would not be visiting any European countries who have been jerks to President Trump,...
