Schengen Agreement Dead – Killed by Refugees


COMMENT: Dear Martin,
you are once more right with your view’s. EU’s Schengen agreement is going to die. From May 1st on, anybody in the EU has to carry an “A1 Certificate” if he or she is going on a business trip to avoid “social insurance fraud”. If not, you could be fined by up to 10.000,00 Euro.
Best regards

REPLY: The cornerstone of the EU was to be the freedom of movement to create the United States of Europe. This became known as the Schengen Agreement to create a borderless Europe signed on June 14, 1985, between five of the then ten member states of the EU. It proposed the gradual abolition of border checks at the signatories’ common borders. Measures proposed included reduced speed vehicle checks, which allowed vehicles to cross borders without stopping, allowing residents in border areas the freedom to cross borders away from fixed checkpoints, and the harmonization of visa policies. However, this Schengen Agreement did not come into effect until March 26, 1995 (1995.232). It eliminated border checks among its members and allowed foreign visitors to travel throughout the area using one visa.

Britain has been preventing those non-EU citizens with Schengen visas from freely crossing the border into Britain. Someone from Ukraine with an EU visa cannot travel to Britain and subsequently to many former British Commonwealth states, such as the Bahamas, even for a vacation. Switzerland also is experiencing an anti-EU immigration trend.

This is what they always do. They cannot repeal the Schengen Agreement, for that would defeat the entire premise of the EU in creating the United States of Europe. They are using health insurance to prove you are really a citizen or legitimate resident of your country. It is always the same — wordsmithing. This is not my simple opinion. The Schengen Agreement was dead once they allowed the refugees into Europe.

The EU Elections Due Tomorrow 26th


There will be no exit polls in the EU election. They made it a criminal offense for any country in the EU to publish exit polls, or any information about how people have voted during the election, before 22:00 BST on Sunday 26 May. In the UK, the vote took place on May 23rd. Voters in Ireland turn out on the 24th. Those in the Czech Republic, Latvia, Malta, and Slovakia voted today on May 25th and the remaining 21 EU nations cast their ballots on May 26th. Theresa May’s disastrous performance sent the Conservative Party down to 7% in the polls against Nigel Farage’s 37% for his new BREXIT Party.

The results are going to be interesting to see just how much of an anti-EU backlash has taken place throughout Europe. It will take a major victory for the anti-EU movement to perhaps give at least some pause to this agenda that cannot possibly succeed even structurally in Europe. The question becomes very clear. Will Brussels’ dig in its heels and refuse to reform? Or will Brussels finally listen to reason

PM Theresa May Resigns


Prime Minister Theresa May has announced that she will now step down as the U.K. prime minister after failing to win support for her plan to withdraw from the European Union. It has been shocking how she only pitched Brussels’ demands and refused to defend Britain. This conflict has been all about Brussels who demands a hard border in Ireland to prevent their loss of taxes on trade.

May stated she was resigning outside 10 Downing Street on Friday, for she said it was “in the interests of the country for a new prime minister” to lead the U.K.’s Brexit process and confirmed her final day as Conservative Party leader would be June 7. However, she will continue as prime minister until a successor is chosen.

“It is and will always remain a matter of deep regret to me that I have not been able to deliver Brexit. It will be for my successor to seek a way forward that honors the result of the referendum,”she said. “To succeed he or she will have to find consensus in parliament where I have not.”

Theresa May has single handedly destroyed her reputation and political career. Brussel’s refusal to yield on the border issue appears to be a deliberate ploy to try to force the U.K. into a choice of a hard exit or remain.

Nigel Farage Discusses Brexit Party Victory and Theresa May Resignation…


Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage calls-in to Fox Business for a discussion of Theresa May’s resignation and the success of the Brexit Party movement in the recent EU election.

.

[ps. I still think U.K. far-left media are sandbagging the results of the British vote for EU Parliament members.  Farage puts the total at 35%. Don’t be surprised if the official numbers are not even higher when announced on Sunday]

Prime Minister Theresa May Breaks Down After Announcing Resignation…


British Prime Minister Theresa May has announced she will be resigning from office, effective June 7th, immediately following the state visit by U.S. President Donald Trump.

In an emotional statement in front of 10 Downing Street, the prime minister made her announcement. Bowing to the inevitable, Theresa May announced she will step down as U.K. Conservative Party leader in two weeks, admitting defeat in her attempt to take Britain out of the European Union and sparking a contest to replace her as prime minister.

Wakey, Wakey – U.K. Votes to “Change Politics For Good”…


The British voted yesterday for members to the European Parliament.  The official announcement of results will not come out until Sunday because the EU vote window is 5/23 through 5/26 (and heaven-forbid the pesky Brits would influence the continent).

That said, initial media “surveys” and “exit polling” reflect the Brexit Party crushed traditional party-lines and gained around one-third of total vote support.

A Survation poll for the Daily Mail shows Mr Farage’s Brexit Party well ahead in the European elections on 31 per cent, trailed by Labour on 23, the Conservatives on 14 and the Lib Dems on 12 (link)

For a political movement only six weeks old; and a likelihood the surveys and exit polls are sandbagged; the results by Nigel Farage and the Brexit Party are remarkable.

The results are so good it is also likely Prime Minister Theresa May will announce her decision to resign her post; with a request for delayed exit (irony) so she doesn’t suffer the embarrassment of a President Trump state visit simultaneous to her being voted out of office (irony x 2).

The odds-on favorite to become Prime Minister is Boris Johnson.

(Via Daily Mail) […] Theresa May will today clear the way for Britain to have a new prime minister by the summer.

Allies said that – barring a last-minute change of heart – she will announce plans this morning to step aside as Conservative Party leader next month.

Mrs May will begin the day with a meeting with the Tories’ backbench shop steward Sir Graham Brady to discuss the exact timetable for her departure.

She is then expected to address the nation from Downing Street to explain why she is leaving ‘the job I love’ before she has realised her ambition of leading Britain out of the European Union.

Mrs May is expected to try to delay the start of the Tory leadership race until the week beginning June 10, to allow her to host Donald Trump’s state visit without the indignity of her MPs voting on her successor at the same time. (read more)

Funny, how that happens….

“See you soon”…

Director of UK Charity Calls for Acid Attack on Nigel Farage


The policy director of a UK charity that “campaigns to increase happiness” was fired after calling for Brexit leader Nigel Farage to be doused in acid. The battle between the left and right is really getting intense. Happy City UK’s Ruth Townsley commented on Nigel Farage being assaulted while walking in Newcastle where someone threw a milkshake at him. She tweeted: “Great that milkshakes have become a thing when it comes to racists in our midst. I’d prefer acid but milkshakes will do for now.” It is so interesting how they hurl labels of “racist” to justify violence when the entire issue of refugees is about religion and not a race

May Could be Asked to Resign by June


Prime Minister Theresa May could be forced to leave Downing Street by late June if she does not deliver a Brexit deal. Conservative Party sources are letting it be known that unless it becomes clear by the end of May that her plan stands a chance of being approved, she may be compelled to leave for the good of the country. They have already voted against changing the party rules that would allow another no-confidence vote this summer ahead of December.

PM May survived a no-confidence vote last December. However, they may change those rules if she fails again in May. Downing Street has set June 30 as its new deadline for a Brexit deal in the Commons. She could remove the divisive border clause in the hope MPs vote for it and send a new message to Brussels that it must be axed or changed if Britain is to leave the EU. Why she seems to prefer sacrificing her own country to the demands of Brussels leaves many in a desperate position.

Prime Minister May has been under pressure to renegotiate with the European Union by Conservative Brexiteers. EU negotiators have insisted that the UK’s Withdrawal Agreement cannot be reopened. Many called for her resignation from angry Brexiteers after a six-month extension deal was agreed at an emergency EU council meeting in Brussels. The delay until Halloween, with a ‘review’ in June, was a compromise solution. It was France who declined an extension for Britain.

 

Vancouver to Investigate Real Estate Buyers for Money Laundering


Premier John Horgan of BC in Canada was joined by Finance Minister Carole James and Attorney General David Eby at a press conference in Victoria, BC, where they announced plans to move forward with a public inquiry in light of recent findings on money laundering.

The real estate bubble in Vancouver was built on a tax-free principal residence exemption and greedy politicians who were eager to benefit however they could. Now that the bubble has burst, they need to blame someone other than themselves. They released a report claiming that dirty foreign capital was the cause of the real estate boom. The real estate market is now under investigation for money laundering. It had been obvious for a long time that capital was parking in Vancouver. Now the twist will be to investigate and see where the money came from. If they can determine it is tainted, they will confiscate the property. Now that the boom is over and money flow has ended, it is time to investigate everyone to see if they can pick up some extra cash with allegations of money laundering. That should help prices decline even further.
