‘Drugging up Germans with oxytocin will help make them “friendlier” to migrants and more susceptible to open borders, a study suggested.

Oxytocin, known as the “cuddle hormone” due to its generosity effects on humans, was suggested as part of a “treatment” for Germans who oppose EU migrant quotas, according to University of Bonn researchers.

“It appears that pairing oxytocin with a social norm can help counter the effects of xenophobia by enhancing altruistic behavior toward refugees,” the study stated.

The leader researcher, Prof. Rene Hurlemann, claimed that “given the right circumstances, oxytocin may help promote the acceptance and integration of migrants into Western cultures.”

In other words, let’s just drug Germans into accepting a globalist agenda.

The study asked 100 native Germans their opinions on migrants, then gave half of them a dose of oxytocin while the other half received a placebo.’

‘In a meeting with United Russia ruling party faction leader Vladimir Vasilyev, Putin said: “I want to remind you that significant budget savings for the next year are stipulated, by the way, due to a cut in defence spending.

‘A “great illusion” prevails in Germany over the deportation of failed asylum applicants, Bavarian premier Horst Seehofer argued, adding it is unrealistic to expel all migrants once they are in the country.

It is much more humane for European countries to protect common borders and decide on the spot whom to allow in than to accept migrants en masse and struggle to deport failed applicants, said Seehofer.

The politician, who also leads the Christian Social Union (CSU), the Bavarian sister party to Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU), told Focus magazine on Friday it was “almost impossible to send back migrants once they are in the country.” 

“I say this having a nine-year experience as [Bavaria’s] prime minister,”Seehofer told German magazine Focus. “A great illusion prevails in Germany when it comes to the issue of deportations,” the politician said.’

‘Britain risks a new Brexit fight in international courts if it tries to quit the EU’s single market without giving other countries official notice, The Independent can reveal.

Legal experts, including one who advised the Treasury, agree Theresa May will leave the UK open to legal action in The Hague if she pulls out of the European Economic Area (EEA) without formally telling its other members 12 months in advance, to avoid disrupting their trade.

The notice is demanded by an international agreement, but ministers do not intend to follow the process because, insiders believe, they want to avoid a Commons vote on staying in the EEA – and, therefore, the single market – that they might lose.’

‘Immigrant-dominated, crime-ridden and largely Muslim enclaves across Europe, the so-called “no-go zones,” have become as much an ideological battleground as a literal one, but many arguing about them have never been to one.

What no-go zones are not?

For most people at most times, the designation “no-go zone” should not be taken literally.

There are exceptions. In the Stockholm suburb of Rinkeby the local police station was shut down in 2014, following the latest in a series of fire-bombing riots, and the one currently under construction is reminiscent of a war-zone outpost, to which police officers will have to be driven. Sparked by seemingly routine encounters between petty criminals and the cops, mass violent protests have originated in the district most years since 2010, though just as notably car burnings and stone-throwing flash riots are at times so frequent they are barely reported in the local media.’

‘A Swiss art dealer is going to jail for more than 12 years after being found guilty of murdering a friend he believed to be an alien.

The defendant, who was not named by the court but identified in the British press as 32-year-old Bennet von Vertes, said he was under the influence of a cocktail of drugs and alcohol at the time.

Von Vertes was also found guilty on a separate charge of raping a former girlfriend two months prior to the attack, the ATS news agency reports.

After a night out in Zurich, the pair were said to have returned to the villa in the early hours of the morning where they got into a fight. During the tussle, von Vertes stabbed his friend with a broken piece of glass before beating him to death with a candlestick holder.

Von Vertes admitted the murder but insisted that hallucinations, brought about by a cocktail of cocaine and ketamine, made him believe his friend was an alien who was trying to kill him.’

‘The European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and his team racked up a bill of £24,450 by chartering a private plane for a one-night visit to Rome, campaigners have revealed.

The fee for the “air taxis” which commissioners are supposed to charter only when there are no commercial options available was part of almost half a million euro bill accumulated by the 28 commissioners in January and February 2016.

Spanish-based human rights group Access Info spent several years trying to obtain detailed information about EU officials’ expenses and following an official request, the Commission released the travel expenses documents.’
