Doctors Without Borders Suspends Their North African Migration Ferry Service…

Facing increased criticism from the EU and Libyan officials being paid by the EU to keep North African economic migrants from crossing the Mediterranean, Doctors Without Borders has temporarily shut down their North African ferry services.

Under the auspices of generous NGO funding, the globalist organization transported thousands of economic migrants from North Africa to the EU so far this year by transferring small groups onto their bigger ships for the journey across the sea.   However, the EU is overflowing with the migrant arrivals, and without the billions of dollars from U.S. pledges via the Paris Climate Treaty even liberal EU supporters of Drs w/out Borders are now saying enough is enough.

ROME (Reuters) – Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said on Saturday it was suspending its migrant rescues in the Mediterranean because it felt threatened by the Libyan coastguard and the Italian government’s policies have made its job harder.

The aid group’s decision is the latest development in mounting tensions between Rome and NGOs as migration dominates Italy’s political agenda ahead of elections early next year.

“We are suspending our activities because now we feel that the threatening behavior by the Libyan coastguard is very serious … we cannot put our colleagues in danger,” the president of MSF’s Italian arm Loris De Filippi told Reuters.

Almost 600,000 migrants have arrived in Italy over the past four years, the vast majority setting sail from lawless Libya in flimsy vessels operated by people smugglers. More than 13,000 migrants have died trying to make the crossing.

Charity boats have played a growing role in rescues, picking up more than a third of all migrants brought ashore so far this year against less than one percent in 2014.

However, Italy fears the groups are facilitating people smuggling and encouraging migrants to make the passage, and it has proposed a Code of Conduct governing how they operate.

Some groups, including MSF, have refused to sign the code. (read more)

      I remember seeing a drunken Sean Penn on Charlie Rose’s show, discussing Haiti, and he kept referring to NGOs. At the time I didn’t know what that meant. Sean was down there frequently, actually trying to get things moving, and working with these good-for-nothing organizations.
      I really think one inebriated actor accomplished more than these global groups, in terms of actual help to Haitians.
      That’s when I started thinking about the nefarious role these kinds of NFP “charities” were taking on.

    I believe a lot of trouble has occurred throughout the world since all these NGO’s started getting funding from governments of all persuasions in the 70’s. Before that they had to raise their own funds. Now they have been infiltrated by marxists and leftists and that includes Doctors without Borders. They are one of the new religions that must not be questioned. Some of them like WW Fund have massive budgets and the top people have million dollar salaries.

      AHHH The World Wildlife Fund…
      Lots of fun dots to connect.
      …..

      Start with Royal Dutch Shell:
      The Dutch royal family (The House of Orange) is still reportedly the biggest shareholder in the Dutch part of the group, although the size of its stake has long been a source of debate. The Queen of England is also a major stockholder.

      Prince Bernhard of the Dutch Royal Family is the Founding President of World Wildlife Fund (WWF) HRH The Duke of Edinburgh served as International President of WWF for 16 years until his retirement at the end of 1996.

      John H. Loudon, Better known as “the Grand Old Man of Shell”, John H. Loudon, a Dutchman, headed Royal Dutch Shell from 1951 to 1965…. He was President of WWF from 1976 to 1981.

      Ruud Lubbers served three terms as Prime Minister of the Netherlands between 1982 and 1994, thus becoming the longest serving Dutch Prime Minister…. He continued in Parliament as Senior Deputy Leader, and later Parliamentary Leader of the Christian Democratic Alliance. He became President of WWF International on 1 January 2000, but only served for one year as he was appointed United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees from 2001-2005.
      …..

      Back to Shell OIl.
      Another major stockholder is the Rothschilds. The Rothschild Investment Trust was formed in 1988 => RIT Capital Partners. Rockefellers and Rothschilds Unite

      A Berkley team member is Richard Muller (The Berkley team that came up with the ‘BEST’ temperature data set a suposed ‘independent set that PROOFED GoreBull Warming..)

      What about Muller’s connections to Shell Oil?
      Muller’s consulting firm, Muller & Assoc. has on its Advisory Board Marlan Downey — “Former President of the international subsidiary of Shell Oil, founder of Roxanna Oil; former President of Arco International”

      Finally we come to Ged Davis a Shell Oil VP with IPCC connections who was in the Climategate E-mails. See: ClimateGate (1) email 0889554019 The e-mail attachment includes his Sustainable Development (B1) scenario aka UN Agenda 21.
      Like Maurice Strong, Ged Davis is one of those people you don’t hear much about who has a big impact on your life.

      Another Shell Oil exec Doug McKay was at the IPCC scenario meetings. McKay was also Senior Financial Analyst with the World Bank. Robert Watson worked for the World Bank while Chair of the IPCC.

      Then you have Shell Oil funding the Climate Research Unit at East Anglia.

      Positively incestuous isn’t it? The world at the top is really rather small and VERY interconnected.

    Sad that because Italy 🇮🇹 faces an election next year, the current government decided enough is enough! Italians are smart enough to see through this 💩.

    From the article linked above:

    Migrants versus the MAFIA: Cosa Nostra ‘declares war’ on refugees as mayor says Sicily capital feels more like Istanbul or Beirut than Europe

    Immigration to Italy soared by 90 per cent in the first three months of the year. The migrant population in Ballaró, the part of Palermo where the shooting took place, has risen from approximately five to 25 per cent since the migrant crisis began.

    There is widespread concern in Italy that the number of new migrants exceeds the country’s capacity to cope – and the mafia is its biggest and most dangerous critic.
    The mayor of Palermo, Leoluca Orlando said: ‘In the past, when the Mafia was more powerful, it prevented any immigrants from entering the city. Until I was 30 years old, I never saw an African or Asian in Palermo.

    Many astute observers of society’s ills including Sir James Goldsmith have noted the necessity for nations to allow time for the complete absorption of new immigrants before opening the doors again. Otherwise, havoc reigns. The lack of common language, culture, religion and morals creates disorder and distrust. One can see that in the early growth of cities where factions of immigrants gave rise to gangs battling for territory.

    This sudden, manufactured, massive immigration will cause chaos for many, many decades to come unless the.migrants are returned to their home territories. Let the NGOs treat the problems there.

  17. Doctors Without Borders has been running an advertisement on radio talking about their good works: “Turn a stairwell into an emergency room …” and “vaccinate 710,000 people in 11 days …”

    But the one that sticks out like a turd in the punch bowl is this: “Turn a refugee ship into a maternity ward …” accompanied by the sound of a crying baby.

    Knowing about this NGO’s “taxi service” helping phony “refugees” (economic migrants) to reach Europe really made that “refugee ship” part horribly inappropriate.

    An interesting bit from this article concerning the shooting of a Gambian migrant by a Mafia member in Pamero, Sicily is a fact that is *carefully ignored by media here and in the EU,* : African CRIME GANGS have come over with the “refugees.” THIS is what has spurred a turf war in Sicily.

    We have the organized criminal (as well as the terrorist) element coming into our own country too via illegals and “refugees.” Our politicians have IGNORED, just like Italy and other EU countries, this OBVIOUS threat for so long that we’re now faced with trying to arrest and deport all MS-13 gang members back to El Salvadore. It’s common sense to expect criminals from poor countries to jump at the chance to profit in a richer country—particularly if the stupid government is picking up the tab for shelter, food and a myriad of social services!! Rotten politicians are selling out their own citizens while virtue signaling. Sickening!

There are other groups who actually spend their funds performing medical miracles on those who need it. Who needs another radical leftist organization.

      There are roughly 50 million Mexicans and Latin Americans living in the US, 20% of our population. The sheer number and the speed at which it has occurred is evidence that most of that migration could not have been legal. What did WE do when those trainloads of diseased Central American “children” started arriving, under Obama’s protection? We complained vociferously and there was some protesting, but there were also idiots at the border with Mexico handing out teddy bears, including Glen Beck and Ted Cruz.

      I agree that PC has seemingly throttled Europe to a suicidal degree, but lest we high horse the Europeans too much, let’s keep in mind that we are very, very lucky that Donald Trump ran for and won the presidency. Had Hillary won, we’d likely have another half million of those “refugees” ourselves, by now.

        Thank you for the links McClainra. I knew DWB were suspect after that Ebola debacle two years ago. Obama used their workers in a social justice experiment to “welcome” this horrible disease to our shores. These supposed health care “professionals” working in Africa had to know the consequences, yet they refused quarantine and ran around EU and USA unimpeded as they developed fevers.

        At the same time, The World Health Org altered their website content to mask the seriousness of this contagion. (Something about the viral load in sneeze droplets). Obama also threatened to withhold funds from African nations who complained as Ebola began to spread. Of course, media sycophants assured us this outbreak was indeed over, several times, then – oops my bad- nothing to see here. . As the story got out Obama simply ordered a news black out and google stopped providing source material to search. News articles disappeared. The whole thing was scrubbed.

        Meanwhile, local emergency workers in hazmat suits were ordered to radio “fever travel incident” and never use the word Ebola when dispatched on calls involving people bleeding out from various orifaces.

        The facade is cracking. Truly, nothing is as it seems. Globalists are, indeed, evil exterminators. And yet, many people, even here in the sobering reality of the Treehouse, still clutch pearls and swoon when their delicate sensibilities are offended. Spit.
