Merkel has come under criticism for a refugee policy that some conservatives call too generous and how best to integrate, support or expel asylum-seekers continues to divide many in Germany.

Cardinal Peter Turkson, a prefect in the Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, said he appreciated what Germany and the European Union had done in recent years, how they accepted people fleeing war and destruction and promoted integration. He also stressed that there was more to be done.

“We also need to help refugees’ home countries,” and improve conditions there, Turkson said. “Right now, Europe is mopping up water, but we need to turn off the tap, or we’ll be forever mopping up water.”

Asked when Germans could expect the long-discussed immigration law that would clarify legal paths of migration and the numbers in which immigrants could enter Germany, Merkel replied it was a priority. “We will have an immigration law in two years time,” she added. “Maybe sooner.” …

“If we always step away from multilateral agreements as soon as we don’t like something about them, that would be a bad message for the world. We want to strengthen multilateralism,” the chancellor said. …
That is the quote mentioned in the headline. Violating the US Constitution is not conducive to international cohesion; sorry, Madam Chancellor.

This left-wing “one world against God” thing goes way back to the Tower of Babel. Nothing new under the sun, of course.

Germany and France are at loggerheads over trade policy, Italy’s two leading parties trying to form a govt are both Eurosceptic. Centrifugal force is a bear.

The inbred English establishment will put off Brexit just in time for the other three largest EU economies to come flying out of it, creating social disorder when people realise they were actually ahead of the curve until their own leaders sold them out. Again. This happens coincidentally with Megan Markle getting caught schtupping a stable boy.

Level one - the power using socialism
Level two - the left non-workers
Level four - 25% immigrants worker 75% on benefits of lower level
Level three - workers and tax payers that pay for upper level
Ohers - not a level as they pay levels above with the highest level receiving money from others.
