GERMAN POLITICIANS DISCUSS SENDING REFUGEES BACK
German politicians, it seems, are now discussing options for handling their ongoing refugee crisis, including the possibility of repatriating some refugees. Ms. C.M. discovered this story, and as one might imagine, it provokes a few high octane speculations!
German Social Democrats leader wants to send refugees back to North Africa
What's interesting here is that one of the people voicing this option is the leader of Germany's Social Democrat Party, Herr Thomas Oppermann. And what's even more interesting is the reason he is giving:
Marking a shift in his party's rhetoric, the chairman of the SPD-Parliamentary Group, Thomas Oppermann, spoke out in favor of sending refugees arriving on boats back to North Africa. In an editorial he penned in the Sunday edition of the German daily newspaper "Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung", Oppermann justified his view arguing that this would be an important step to curb human trafficking.
"In order to fight human trafficking gangs more successfully we have to deprive them of the grounds on which they conduct their business, by returning refugees saved in the Mediterranean to North Africa and attending to their needs there," Oppermann wrote.
"The solution will not solely involve a greater level of cooperation with the broken country of Libya but will also include more stable transit countries in North Africa, including Morocco and Tunisia."
Oppermann's words come in support of an initiative by German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere aimed at establishing a reception center for refugees in Tunisia and thus strengthening Europe's borders. De Maiziere last month said that some refugees should "not arrive in Europe in the first place but rather be returned to safe places." (Emphasis added)
What's intriguing here is that Oppermann's solution echoes, in some respects, the statements of Dutch politician Geert Wilders made years ago, for which Wilders was pilloried in the Dutch press. But even more intriguing is that Oppermann's reason for apparently moving his party away from the refugee policy it itself concurred with in Chancellorin Merkel's previous coalition government, is that this would be a blow against human trafficking networks.
As one might imagine, this prompts a couple of high octane speculations. The first speculation has to do with those refugee networks themselves, for there have been stories and allegations that one Darth Soros has been involved in the transport of refugees from Africa to Europe. If those allegations should ever be tied to his other activities, it would seem that there is a growing movement in Europe to scrutinize his activities. Only a few days ago, Britain's well-known EU parliament member and outspoken opponent of the EU, Nigal Farage, called for an EU-wide investigation of Soros and his "foundations." Thus, having the leader of one of Germany major political parties state this as a reason for repatriation of refugees might be signaling a deeper agenda to follow.
The second speculation, however, hits closer to home. Angela Merkel is in trouble, since she played a major role in creating the refugee crisis in the first place. For her efforts, her Christian Democrat Union party took a drubbing in the last German federal elections, and Frauke Petry's Alternativ fur Deutschland party, the party which made its opposition to the refugee policy of Merkel's government a major component of its first run in national elections, scooped up over 90 seats in the new Bundestag. Adding to Frau Merkel's woes, the Social Democrats indicated they would not be interested in being in a coalition government with her. This left Merkel scrambling after the elections to cobble together a new coalition, which, as we know, fell through. At that juncture, the SDP signaled it might be interested in a new coalition.
As I have previously suggested, the price for this will probably be very high. And Herr Oppermann may just have signaled what one of the conditions may be. Whether or not Mad Madam Merkel is willing to pay it remains to be seen. If not, my guess is that her government - if she is able to form one - will be weak, and its days will be numbered.
See you on the flip side.

It seems the secret plan unleashed in 2016 has failed : Questionable Deal: EU to Work with African Despot to Keep Refugees Out…….The EU’s new action plan for the Horn of Africa provides the first concrete outlines: For three years, 40 million ($45 million) is to be paid out to eight African countries from the Emergency Trust Fund, including Sudan.
The ambassadors of the 28 European Union member states had agreed to secrecy. “Under no circumstances” should the public learn what was said at the talks that took place on March 23rd, the European Commission warned during the meeting of the Permanent Representatives Committee. A staff member of EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini even warned that Europe’s reputation could be at stake.
Sure glad we took care of Libya.
When teems of South American refugees came here “on invitation of President Obama” were they nicely assimilated into various U.S. communities here and there? I’ve personally heard little of what became of these refugees?
Good point…. well the MS13 from SA well , they are busy sticking to their knitting?
I was listening to a call in program of the Swedish Radio 1 about the immigration issue this early morning. What I noticed was that the receiver of the calls, had very biased questions to callers that had critical thoughts about immigration. They brought up the issues of how to finance the refugees impact, only now by the pensioneers, as it is also in Norway. The rhetorical question to the caller was, do you not have any emphaty to those people that have been arriving. When people calling that were pro immigration, no critical questions were asked.
Our MSM, in Sweeden an Norway, is still in this pro mass immigration modus. The cultural aspect is more or less ignored. If you question the mass immigration issue,; you are a racist. Period.
Some politicians are now coming up with statements, in Norway and Sweeden, that this has been going to far. The leftist are using the racist card more ore less everytime someone express their concern, but I think they are loosing now. Because ordineary people are seeing that tis will not work.
My ancesters are mostly from the coastal Samii population. So, I can be labelled as a quarter Samii ,or a half Samii. In the terms of Goebels. Or in the USA, I would have been a full blooded Samii, if the terms used to descirbe people of african origin. Well, culturally, I am a Norweegian, as US citizans, they are Americans that are having ancesters from Africa.
Anyhow. Today we made a last farwell to my mother. She passed away last Sunday, 99 years old. What I discovered 4 years ago, she suffered from dementia, but what was going on 80 years ago, she very well remembered! Well, during WW2, she and her sister made stenography from BBC news, from a radio on their top floor of their house in Harstad, printing the text the next day, 8 copies distributed. I asked her, do you remember when Stalingrad falled; we cheered, she said. She was a hero and I did not know about her efforts during WW2 until 4 years a go.
And,; when she was borned, there were no radio, no TV, no PC, and the aircrafts had dobble wings, and – the horse carriers were the main vehicles in the streets. What an amazing story and journey!
All the Best, Dag. and Merry Christmas.
Here in Italy many people are healthily skeptical about mainstream media migration memes, and have understood, or intuited, the destructive economic and cultural agenda behind the highly structured (and highly profitable) human trafficking that is being passed off as being “spontaneous migration”. I’m sure that real opinion in Scandinavia is much the same.
As usual, economist Michael Hudson cuts to the chase:
“The immediate question facing Germany and the rest of Western Europe is how long they will sacrifice their trade and investment opportunities with Russia, Iran, and other economies by adhering to U.S.-sponsored sanctions. American intransigence threatens to force an either/or choice in what looms as a seismic geopolitical shift over the proper role of governments: should their public sectors provide basic services and protect populations from predatory monopolies, rent extraction, and financial polarization?
The past century’s global fracture between creditor and debtor economies has interrupted what seemed to be Europe’s democratic destiny to empower governments to override financial and other rentier interests. Instead, the West is following U.S. diplomatic leadership back into the age when these interests ruled governments. This conflict between creditors and democracy, between oligarchy and economic growth (and indeed, survival) will remain the defining issue of our epoch over the next generation, and probably for the remainder of the 21st century.”

Absolutely Right On The Money!!!
While the ‘people cost’ is high and I feel sorry for all sides involved, I can’t help but feel that the refugee-kerfuffle is serving its purpose: Misdirection.
Every moment eyes are focused on this issue, they are not focused on Central Banks, Breakaway Civilizations, ESP, 0.00001%ers, etc. Wizard of Oz maneuvers. Don’t look behind that curtain…
Over the last 5 years the Australian government has made a big deal about it’s success in “stopping the boats” and “depriving the people-smugglers of their business model”. It has however saddled itself with a problem; refugees who are interred in “detention centres” on remote Pacific islands (Manus and Nauru). How this problem gets solved is undetermined. New Zealand has offered to take the refugees but this is unacceptable to the government for what seems to be purely political reasons. The most striking thing about this unfortunate situation is that the Australian government has made it illegal for health workers and legal advocates to publically comment and/or report on the welfare of the refugees being detained. No transparency, no accountability, no morality. Angela Merkel would do well to cast her Sonderkommando eyes over the current lack of popularity being experienced by the Australian Prime Minister because, like her dubious coalition, the current Australian government’s legitimacy is weak, and its days are numbered.
Of course refugees aren’t like a Christmas sweater that you can send back for a refund. And the operative word in the headline is “discuss,’ as in talk. As in hot air being expelled.
Mayors in France (leftist ones at that) have written an open letter to Macron published in Le Monde saying the boat is full to overflowing and that they have no more resources to deal with any more “asylum” seekers; those already being parceled out to them have no places to go.
Interesting that now Sauros and Sutherland can add “human trafficker” to their CVs and already long list of “accomplishments” for an open society (and leaking like a sieve).
It’s a little late, once you have pulled the Trojan Horse into your compound, don’t you think? You have knowingly allowed the invasion which will eventually take you down.
I hope you’re wrong WD, bilut you are most likely correct. SIGH
It’s never too late, mate. Just watch the re-election process in Germany and see what will happen when the ‘Alternativ fur Deutschland’ party gains more power. Mad Merkel and her ‘open German society’ project is already out of the equation. Germans are very patient people but when you poke them to much with a stick you should expect a big hard kick in the buttock. And the whole Europa will follow, just watch…
I hope you are correct; however, for every one of those “child” refugees you eventually get the rest of the family, it would seem. This is far from over.
Though mass repatriations could in theory be feasible (Germany and others have experience in this), it was interesting to see the mention of the N. African coast as the focus of trafficking. However, the leaky migrant boats are just the last link in a money-making chain that starts in the Sahel and Equatorial Africa. Areas that are heavily controlled by French, German and assorted globalist interests. Mining operations in those parts use slave labour under the watchful eye of “Western” troops or mercenaries and their puppet governments. Who get a cut on the labourers who choose to stay and on those who are provided with “convenient” escape channels – for a price.
They can’t send refugees back in masses anymore. Once you let them in, it’s game over. Sure you can send back few of them, but it does not change the big picture.
