European Leaders Greece,Germany,Poland,Hungary,Slovakia Threaten Civil War Over Migrant Crisis

 Their fears are this will spread to American, A top EU official has warned that the migrant crisis in Europe threatens to erupt into a huge civil war within 2 years, unless something drastic is done to curb the influx of refugees. European Commissioner for regional policy Corina Cretu says that leaders need to spend serious money on tackling the issue, before migrant ghettos become a “nuclear bomb” of unrest.

Top EU official warns migrant crisis set to spark civil war

Ms Cretu said that this is important for ‘social integration’. She told the Thomson Reuters Foundation this week at the World Urban Forum in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: ‘Social integration will be crucial in the years to come.

‘If we allow ghettos or segregation of migrants, this will become a nuclear bomb in the future.’

The EU asylum system was on the brink of collapse in 2015 as a million refugees and migrants arrived by boat, overwhelming Greece and Italy.

Poland, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic refused to take some of the new arrivals.

The dispute ended up in the courts and has weakened the bloc’s unity, spilling over to other policy areas.

European Union interior ministers are now struggling with the politically charged issue of reforming the union’s asylum system.

Former communist states continue to defy pressure from other European capitals to accept refugees travelling across the Mediterranean which would ease the burden on nations such as Greece and wealthy destination countries like Germany.

Ms Cretu, who oversees the cohesion policy, highlighted recent investments on the frontlines of Europe’s migrant crisis – from the purchase of two rescue boats for Italian authorities to a support network for mayors of cities wrestling with migration.

When residents and migrants clash, ‘mayors are in the middle’, Ms Cretu said, citing the tiny Greek island of Chios, where arrivals of refugees and migrants have risen recently.

The European Union is using a new approach to measure inequality, which should give policy makers a better understanding of which areas are most in need, according to Cretu.

She said: ‘GDP per capita is not very accurate because it doesn’t take into account these pockets of poverty unemployment.’

Ms Cretu also believes that while the cohesion policy’s biggest achievements to-date have been in traditional infrastructure, basic needs have been neglected in many parts of eastern Europe.

She said: ‘We have still people who are dying because of the quality of water, because the networks were built 40-50 years ago.’

ALERT ALERT

 After Years Of Stagnation Under Obama 
Household Income Hits 50-Year High

Image result for money

Former President Barack Obama got plenty of praise for shepherding us through the recovery from the 2008 economic crisis. However, those on Main Street, USA, knew the truth — things weren’t any better than they had been when George W. Bush left office.

As The Weekly Standard reported in 2016, median household income when Obama came into office in 2009 was $56,731. In 2015, six years into his presidency, that number was $56,516 — a decrease of just over $200.

By the time he left office, it’s true that media household income had risen to $59,471 — but that was essentially the same as it had been in December, 2007, at the end of the “Great Recession” and just a few weeks before Obama took office, when it was $59,549.

So, how’s The Donald doing?

Well, as Investor’s Business Daily reported, a new study from Sentier Research found that the median household income in April was $61,483 — a 50-year high.

That’s up from $59,471 in January of 2017.

The firm tracks income using census data and adjusts for inflation — so even a slightly weaker dollar doesn’t account for the increase.

Bad News For Dems: Household Income Hits All-Time High Under Trump … And He's Getting Credit For It!!! 

Household Income Hits All-Time High Under Trump, And He's Getting Credit For It

A new report shows that the median household income has climbed 3% since President Trump took office. It's another sign of a strong economy, and at least one poll shows the public credits Trump for...

That’s great news for the country, but maybe not the best news for Democrats.

“This is just another indication that the economy has notably strengthened under Trump. And polls show that the public’s mood has brightened considerably as a result,” Investor’s Business Daily reported.

“The latest IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index is 53.6. This index has been in positive territory (anything over 50 is optimistic) since Trump took office. The Quality of Life Index, meanwhile, hit a 14-year high in May and the Financial Stress Index is at an all-time low.”

That economic data is followed by a lot of polls that seem to show that the “blue wave” expected in the November midterms breaking and rolling back into the sea.

A new Reuters poll found that a generic Republican would beat a generic Democrat by six points. Back in March, the Democrats were up by nine points. A CBS poll found that Democrats had a two-point advantage on the generic ballot — hardly “wave” material.

The CBS poll also found that 68 percent of Americans believed Trump’s policies deserved at least some of the credit for the economic situation, with 35 percent saying he deserved a “great deal” of the credit.

Sixty-four percent of respondents rated the economy as “somewhat good” or “very good.” In a CNN poll, 57 percent of voters said that “things are going well in the U.S.” In February, that was 49 percent.

Perhaps the most important figure: Under Obama, when Gallup asked whether it was a good time to find “a quality job in the U.S.,” the highest number that administration ever achieved was 45 percent. Under Trump, that number is 67 percent — the highest number in the 17-year history of the poll.

While Trump’s personal numbers haven’t seen the same bounce, they’re still up — and that’s the important thing. Thanks to the relentless campaign of personal attacks against him, Trump’s stated approval rating has always been a lot lower than it probably is.

Don’t believe me? Just ask Hillary Clinton. For all of the personal barbs and attacks, 2016 ultimately came down to the economy. So will 2018 — and that’s not good news for the Democrats.
