Melania Makes Most Powerful Case Against Trump Enemies

Donald Trump, Europe, Feminism, Gender, Law, Left-Liberalism

“All sexual assault allegations should be handled in a court of law. To accuse someone, man or woman, without evidence is damaging and unfair”—Melania Trump (Fox News 10/17/2016.)

In both her interviews with CNN’s condescending Anderson Cooper and Fox News’s Ainsley Earhardt, Mrs. Trump shows herself to embody the true meaning of strong. When an American woman declares she’s a strong woman, she is using a cliche. She means a woman who whines a lot and brings others into compliance with her world view and ways. (Or you’re hear about it.)

Melania Trump is authentically strong.

In her refusal to give salacious tell-all interviews, in guarding her privacy, and in her serene, gracious, beautiful manners and bearing—Mrs. Trump exemplifies a European woman’s good breeding.

In line with her non-histrionic approach to the world, Melania refused to get worked up about the Access Hollywood tape in which her husband engaged in locker-room talk. Boys-will-be-boys.

Perceptively, Melania noted that every malicious, lie-filled article about herself or Mr. Trump was written by a … female.

Welcome to American Matriarchy rising.

Donald Trump is right to defend himself, said his wife. (Agreed.) “He will fight for the American people as he fights for himself.”

Treasonous Dutch courts fight vs. Geert Wilders:

The story here is American government treason. The 9/11 student-visa program continues unabated. On the positive side, only he died.

Voter fraud is all in Trump’s head. Ask Brianna Keilar of CNN (although the story has since morphed. See below. WA mass murderer was a bad immigrant, but legal. We’re safe).

Not quite a Muslim ban, but close:

Trump doesn’t back down about Islam:

Pence made Trump mellow:

But the women fear Trump, not Islam:

Theo van Gogh remembered:

Blonds beware!

Hungary’s Viktor Orbán The Great:

Another attempted ‘murder-by-Muslim immigrant’:

Immigration treason or electoral fraud; it’s much of a muchness:

EU Commissars Move To Control Ireland-Apple Tax Transactions

Business, EU, Europe, States' Rights, Taxation

And EU countries, most of which bitched about Brexit, wonder why they’re a morass of joblessness and welfare. The EU’s Great Centralizers in Brussels are looking to override Ireland’s tax arrangement with Apple, arrangements Ireland ought to be free to make as an ostensibly sovereign country. EU tax collectors don’t want Ireland to be free to grant Apple certain tax provisions that would enhance prosperity—jobs and investment—in Ireland.

Wait a second, wasn’t Ireland overwhelmingly against Brexit and for Britain remaining in the EU?

Don’t the Irish get that this is what union with EU commissars looks like?

George Soros: Citizen Of The World (Government)

Europe, Foreign Policy, IMMIGRATION, Left-Liberalism, Nationhood

To bolster what Barely a Blog has already reported about Citizen Soros, via The Daily Beast’s Peter Hasson comes, today, a “leaked Soros memo,” stating that, “Refugee Crisis [is the] ‘New Normal [that] Gives ‘New Opportunities’ For Global Influence”:

A leaked memo from left-wing financier George Soros’s Open Society Foundations argues that Europe’s refugee crisis should be accepted as a “new normal,” and that the refugee crisis means “new opportunities” for Soros’ organization to influence immigration policies on a global scale.

OSF program officer Anna Crowley and program specialist Katin Rosin co-authored the May 12 memo, titled “Migration Governance and Enforcement Portfolio Review.” The memo focuses on an OSF program called the International Migration Initiative, which aims to influence immigration policy.

The nine-page review makes three key points: OSF — which doles out millions to left-wing causes — has been successful at influencing global immigration policy; Europe’s refugee crisis presents “new opportunities” for the organization to influence global immigration policy; and the refugee crisis is the “new normal.”

Open Society Foundations is successfully influencing global immigration policy

One of the purposes of the review, Crowley and Rosin write in the introduction, is to “consider the effectiveness of the approaches we have used to achieve change at the international level.”

[dcquiz] A section of the review titled “Our Work” describes how America’s least transparent think tank has worked with “leaders in the field” to “shape migration policymaking and influence regional and global processes affecting the way migration is governed and enforced.”

In a section titled, “Our Ambitions,” the authors explain: “Our premise for engaging in work related to governance was that, in addition to mitigating the negative effects of enforcement, we should also be supporting actors in the field proactively seeking to change the policies, rules, and regulations that govern migration.”

“We also believed that advances at the regional or international levels could create impetus for policy change or implementation of existing norms at the national level. We deliberately avoided the term ‘global governance’ because there is no single system at the global level for managing migration.”

The same section later states that IMI “has had to be selective and opportunistic, particularly at the global level, in supporting leaders in the field to push thinking on migration and better coordinate advocacy and reform efforts. We have supported initiatives, organizations, and networks whose work ties directly to our aims in the corridors.”

“Early on, IMI identified a handful of organizations able to engage on migration globally and transnationally, elevating IMI’s corridor work beyond the national level,” reads another section of the memo, entitled “Our Place.”

“These included key think tanks such as the Migration Policy Institute (MPI) and advocacy networks such as the International Detention Coalition (IDC).” (The authors later note that MPI, a strong advocate of amnesty for illegal immigrants in America, “is sometimes criticized for its closeness to governments, [but] flexible funding from OSF has allowed it to maintain some independence from the governments it advises.”)

The memo also notes that “IMI played a central role in establishing and influencing the goals of two new [European Programme for Integration and Migration] sub-funds on the Common European Asylum System (CEAS) and immigration detention.”

Europe’s refugee crisis presents “new opportunities” for OSF

The memo explains how Europe’s refugee crisis is opening doors for Soros’ organization to further influence global immigration policy.

The authors note that “the current refugee crisis is creating space to reconsider the governance of migration and the international refugee regime.”

One reason for this is that the developing countries that make up the Group of 77 at the United Nations were motivated by the refugee crisis to keep immigration issues on the “global agenda,” the memo states.

“The refugee crisis and the fear that the interests of migrants fleeing poverty, climate change, generalized violence, or natural disaster would be overlooked at these fora have generated a push from G77 countries to ensure other migration issues remain on the global agenda.”

They later explain that the current crisis provides “new opportunities” for influencing immigration policy on a global scale.

“The current climate presents new opportunities for reforming migration governance at the global level, whether through the existing multi-lateral system, or by bringing together a range of actors to think more innovatively. Our long-standing interest and investment in global work means we have many of the right partners and are positioned to help others navigate this space.”

Additionally, the review states, “The refugee crisis is opening new opportunities” for “coordination and collaboration” with other wealthy donors.

Europe’s refugee crisis: the new normal

According to the review, immigration policy-makers need to accept the refugee crisis as a “new normal.”

One of the conclusions listed in the memo is, “Accepting the current crisis as the new normal and moving beyond the need to react.”

“Observing our partners as they respond and adjust to the new reality in light of the crisis in Europe and the Mediterranean, we see little attention given to long-term planning or fundamentally new approaches to advocacy.” The conclusion also stresses the need to fight back against “growing intolerance toward migrants.”

OSF has not yet returned The Daily Caller’s request for comment.

Soros thinks of himself as a citizen of the world, but he’s vying for global governor.
