EU in Disarray Over Global Migration Pact

EU in Disarray Over Global Migration Pact

Germany’s AfD leader: “Leftist dreamers and globalist elites want to secretly turn our country from a nation state into a settlement area.”

The European Union is in the midst of a political turmoil over the ratification of the United Nations pact on migration. The resistance to the pact is galvanizing in Europe ahead of the December 10 deadline when the representatives from some 180 UN member states will meet in Morocco, a Muslim-majority country in North Africa, to formally adopt the “Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration,” as the pact is officially called.

Belgium became the latest EU country to get sucked into the crisis, with its ruling coalition teetering on the brink of collapse over the migration dispute. The country’s right-wing New Flemish Alliance (N-VA) broke away from the ruling alliance amid sharp disagreements over the UN pact. The N-VA regards the agreement as an infringement of Belgian sovereignty. “In our democracy, we decide. The sovereignty is with the people,” the party said.

The Belgian newspaper EU Observer covered the unfolding political crisis in the country:

The future of Belgium’s coalition government has come under threat after Prime Minister Charles Michel said he would sign the UN Global Migration Compact in Marrakesh on 10 December, despite opposition from his coalition partner, the Flemish right-wing N-VA party. (…)

Michel said the international credibility of Belgium, which had approved the document last September, was at stake. He also said Belgium could not afford to oppose the pact while the countries surrounding it are expected to support it.

The Belgian PM also announced he would take the issue to the federal parliament. Some commentators see the vote in the Belgian parliament as an attempt by Michel to forge a new majority.

Michel’s MR party (ALDE-affiliated) has been in coalition since 2014 with the New Flemish Alliance (N-VA, ECR-affiliated), the Christian Democratic and Flemish (CD&V, EPP-affiliated), the Open Flemish Liberals and Democrats (Open Vld, ALDE affiliated).

Should N-VA choose to pull out from the government, this would probably lead to a breakup of the coalition.

The development further diminishes the EU’s chances of unequivocally endorsing the pact ahead of next month’s UN migration summit in Morocco. Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel is among the most fervent backers of the UN treaty besides German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron.

Last December, the United States became the first country to pull out of the Obama-era pact, prompting other countries to follow suit. In recent months, the opposition to the agreement has grown within the EU, with Slovakia becoming the eighth EU member county to reject the pact earlier this week. Outside of the EU, Switzerland, Australia, and Israel have also withdrawn from the global pact.

Speaking at the UN general assembly in September, President Trump urged other nations to join the U.S. in rejecting the globalist agenda. “America is governed by Americans,” he said. “We reject the ideology of globalism and we embrace the doctrine of patriotism.”

The opposition to the pact is not limited to eastern Europe alone. Germany’s Merkel faces open rebellion within her Christian conservative CDU, with leading party members speaking against the UN-backed initiative.

Marian Wendt, a senior CDU lawmaker, is spearheading the campaign to challenge Merkel on the floor of the parliament over the issue. Wendt has received support from Jens Spahn, the German health minister and a front-runner to succeed Merkel as the CDU chief.

The sharpest rebuke to the Merkel’s stance on the issue comes from the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD), the third largest party in the German Bundestag. “Millions of people from crisis-stricken regions around the world are being encouraged to get on the road,” the co-chair of the AfD parliamentary group, Alexander Gauland, said recently. “Leftist dreamers and globalist elites want to secretly turn our country from a nation state into a settlement area.”

The opposition within the Bundestag is unlikely to stop Merkel from signing the pact, but it will further weaken her at home and within the EU. After President Obama’s departure from the world stage, the German leader is widely seen as the driving force behind the UN migration initiative.

The migration pact is regarded by many on the European right as an attempt to establish an international legal framework to supersede the existing national laws. Once in place, the UN framework could be used to sanction individual countries defying the open door immigration policies advocated by the political elite sitting in Berlin and Brussels, the opponents of the pact fear.

It seems like much of the Western political class is begging to be overthrown?

Or, the more likely result: “Leftist dreamers and globalist elites want to secretly turn our country from a nation state into a settlement area third world country.”

The EU was not supposed to be a suicide pact.

An infringement of Belgium sovereignty? HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAA!

The fuckers haven’t had a functioning Government for fucking decades!! They have literally outsourced their entire Government to the FUCKING EU!

Belgium IS the EU!

And to think that all this opposition the the UN/EU Pact is only possible because of Trump!

Europe, the choice is yours. Continue on a Globalist path towards losing one’s own sovereignty, taking in the uneducated, unskilled rabble of the third world, or FIGHT BACK and say “Enough!”. Seems like an obvious choice to me.

    This is now becoming to be the closest for the need of a Churchill like intervention after Chamberlain came back from peace talks in Germany. EU would let England cleanly off the hooks on the Brexit vote if they could negotiate a clean deal on keeping the Financial Power in London. Similar to holding the city of Berlin in Germany after borders were reestablished. post WWII.
    The EU – has been and is manipulating not only England, but Hungary and France while courting Italy and Russia to stay viable. Deja vu when it falls apart?

Keep in mind that it took many years to get the right people in place to make this anti-democratic power grab. It is now unraveling like a an old cheap sweater. Just goes to show how fragile large, conspiracy-based structures prove to be. Without the consent of the governed, you get violence.

I hope CA is watching Paris these days. Our state government might be shocked with how fast their plans unravel once voters rebel. Once the middle class has completed emigrating, it will be the elites paying all of the income-based taxes. The poor people on welfare will be trapped in poverty paying all of the gas, cigarette, alcohol and mass transit taxes. Guess what happens next?

Just every other state is already there are soon to be there. Those who don’t think so are not paying attention. Heck, TX almost turned blue. FL probably has already.

Breitbart reporting that Paris police union chief is urging his staff to join this week-ends protests. I wonder why these protests are only happening on week-ends? Is it because the protesters work during the week? Unlike our BLM, Antifa, and other professional and/or trust baby protesters?

A cover-up for collateral damage from social justice adventures (e.g. anti-nativism progress, redistributive and retributive change), the deficits of planned parenthood, the unaffordability of central planning, and gerrymandering votes through diversity and division under political congruence doctrine.

I know that I am preaching to the choir and/or flogging a dead horse, but why in the hell do we still bankroll and host the UN? What exactly is it’s purpose other than to destroy western civilization and prop up despots?

A Soviet… excuse me, RUSSIAN… invasion of Europe at some point in the future might actually be a good thing. Then all the radical Leftists/Muslims running Europe into the mud would become Russia’s problems.

The proposal should be re-named, as the more accurately-stated “Global Pact to Spread Islamic Supremacism, Totalitarianism and Belligerence, By Exploiting Western Historical/Theological Ignorance, Naivete, Vanity and Dhimmitude.”

classic example why the US founding fathers set up our constitution the way they did, the more populous states could not run roughshod over the smaller less populous states
