EUCO and “relocation” quotas; a one-size fits all migration disaster

EUCO and “relocation” quotas; a one-size fits all migration disaster

Angela Merkel and her Court in Brussels are very predictable. "We must act in solidarity to protect Europe's values with an EU solution to the refugee crisis", seems to be their mantra.  Since when does "solidarity" force member states to accept migrant quotas against ...
EUCO’s New Refugee “Relocation” Scheme; Endless Quotas

EUCO’s New Refugee “Relocation” Scheme; Endless Quotas

#Editors note: I took a three-week break from writing. Having three young daughters who play sport in America (my oldest, 8, alone took on tennis, soccer, and softball in the spring season), it was an exhausting end of the term; but we enjoyed every minute of it. Now ou ...
Battle for Europe: Merkel, EUCO vs. Orban, V4

Battle for Europe: Merkel, EUCO vs. Orban, V4

Europe is at a crossroads.  The migrant crisis is ugly, and it will get worse.  There is no "EU solution" in sight, member nations are too fragmented.  There are no universal EU values, despite Merkel's claim to divinity. The way of life and culture is much different in ...
The Nation States, not the EU, are best equipped to solve the Migrant Crisis

The Nation States, not the EU, are best equipped to solve the Migrant Crisis

The EU and Angela Merkel have come out with another predictable and disappointing "EU solution" that contains nothing new.  When the EU speaks of controlling the border and stopping the illegal crossings, they are not talking about reducing or stopping the flow of migra ...
An EU solution to the Migrant Crisis? Why it may not be possible until the EU breaks apart

An EU solution to the Migrant Crisis? Why it may not be possible until the EU breaks apart

September 2015: After returning home from the Czech republic, I was shocked at the events taking place in Greece, Italy and Germany.  One could see months ago that this migrant crisis was a complete chaos and not sustainable in the long run.  Surely, I said to myself, E ...
Merkel overstepping her authority: Time for others in EU to debate “no-confidence” vote on her

Merkel overstepping her authority: Time for others in EU to debate “no-confidence” vote on her

No one needs reminded more than Angela Merkel that the people of the Czech Republic and the other EU states did not elect her.  She is the Chancellor of Germany, not the Queen of Europe.  When she tells Erdogan of Turkey that "Germany will keep her promises", she should ...
PM Sobotka Fails CzechRepublic, Visegrad4

PM Sobotka Fails CzechRepublic, Visegrad4

*August 30 2016 update: Last week, Czech Republic took in 8 migrant quotas from Greece, which seems to run counter to Sobotka tough talk while Merkel visited. Minister Chovanec did say they would not take any quotas from Turkey "THIS YEAR".  But what about next year, "a ...
Renzi Tsipras negligent for Open Border Wave-Through, exposing all Europeans

Renzi Tsipras negligent for Open Border Wave-Through, exposing all Europeans

To be quite blunt, this writer has never respected Matteo Renzi, the unhinged PM of Italy (full disclosure:  a set of my grandparents were born in northern Italy and I deeply respect the citizens of Italy, just not their leaders).  Italy's economy is in shambles, not al ...
EU Golem State: Refugee Quotas, Blackmail and Extortion for Satellite Nations

EU Golem State: Refugee Quotas, Blackmail and Extortion for Satellite Nations

One knew this was coming; it was just a matter of time.  Angela Merkel, too, knew all along that this was her only card left to play.  Some 2,000,000 migrants/refugees (and some terrorists) have stormed across the border, and more are coming.  Despite the whining and ex ...
Merkel should be thanking Macedonia, Balkans (not Turkey) for saving her skin

Merkel should be thanking Macedonia, Balkans (not Turkey) for saving her skin

Angela Merkel must think she walks on water.  Often portrayed by the media as the "Indespencible  European", she is vain enough to believe only she can save Europe. But clearly, as evidenced by the migrants overwhelming desire for Germany, she, more than anyone, enabled ...
