    How Denmark SOLVED The Immigration Crisis

    The Terran


    May 30, 2024
    In the past decades, immigration to the EU has skyrocketed. With millions pouring in every year, there seems to be no end in sight. Yet Denmark, the Scandinavian Welfare State, seems to have found the solution.
    .
    Only 1,500 people applied for asylum in Denmark in 2020, a 57 percent drop from the previous year and the lowest number since the 1990s. In the same year, Sweden recorded 13,000 asylum claims.

    Denmark, renowned for being polite and progressive, is profoundly skeptical of asylum seekers. Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, of the center-left Social Democrats, has set a target of “zero” people arriving in Denmark outside the U.N. resettlement system.

    I used to like him and loved his comedy. He took the pi** out of the woke crowd, when they deserved it. He exposed his shadow by being explicitly pro-genocide though. Such a creep.

    Norman Finkelstein said to Kyle that many jews aren't actually Zionists, but they're just jewish supremacists so jews can do no wrong. US is in bed with Israel and Germany has the guilt of the past when it comes to jews and Israel. Bill has always been smug, but now he's just becoming old, conservative out of touch rich white weed smoking (jew) guy. He complains about the woke youth all the time and that's his whole schtick. I've been disgusted with many celebrities even more recently. They just think about their group, but if they had any sense of humanity, compassion and common sense they would still speak out against "their group" and say that what Israel has been doing is atrocious and US is supporting them in committing the genocide.

    At a crossroads - Will the European Union shift to the right?

    | DW Documentary


    Jun 3, 2024
    Is Europe facing a shift to the right? Pollsters predict that radical right-wing parties could win votes in the upcoming European elections, and gain strength within the EU Parliament. However, Europe’s radical right is already influencing EU policy.

    What consequences would a shift to the right have for the EU? This documentary accompanies Members of the European Parliament, while analyzing the political shifts that have taken place under Commission President Ursula von der Leyen. For example: EU Commission President and radical right-wing Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni profess to different political agendas. Yet, friendly embraces and amicable conversations are indeed suggestive of a world where an ability to get along with each other might prove mutually advantageous - something almost symbolic of the EU itself.

    "Endgame for Europe - The European Union at the Crossroads” takes a close look at the battle being waged between pro-European forces and their radical right-wing opponents over the direction the EU will take in coming years. Bones of contention include topics like migration, climate change and the distribution of power within the European Union itself.

    A look at von der Leyen's tenure to date (2019-2024) shows the extent to which the struggle for compromise has shifted political positions. When it comes to migration, many EU measures are now in line with the demands of the radical right. The EU’s climate policy, known as the Green Deal, is in danger of failing. But many questions remain unanswered: Will the current veto right of individual member nations be reformed in favor of a majority principle? Will the EU remain capable of action? Might the EU gain in power? Or lose?

    The documentary seeks answers to difficult questions. How much compromise can Europe tolerate? And where do European politicians draw the line?

Plus, Jon pleads with the media to act a little more like the court system and examine evidence and reach conclusions, instead of wildly speculating on future realities.

    EU elections: Europe's night of election drama
    capped by Macron bombshell

    | BBC News




    Exit polls had begun to roll in at the end of European elections across the EU’s 27 countries, when President Emmanuel Macron delivered his bombshell moment in a televised address to a stunned French population.

    “I’ve decided to hand you back the choice of our parliamentary future with a vote. I am therefore dissolving the National Assembly,” he declared.

    The National Rally party - led by Mr Macron's rivals Marine Le Pen and Jordan Bardella - was one of the big gains that Europe’s far-right parties had expected, and confirmation came with all the exit polls giving the party more than 30%, double that of Mr Macron’s centrist Renaissance.

    But beyond France, the broader story of Europe's four-day vote marathon really belonged to the parties of the centre right.

    They tightened their grip on the European Parliament, with victories in Germany and Spain, and significant advances in Hungary, against long-dominant Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

    The far right did not enjoy as great a surge across Europe as many had predicted.

    In the Netherlands, Geert Wilders’ Freedom Party came second, while Austria’s party of the same name came out as winners, but only narrowly.

    The collapse of Russia has already started, at least a financial one and Putin can only thank himself for that.

    The real question is how long would it take to a real collapse like seen during the fall of Soviet Union.
