He is now having to ration some of his wares, estimating demand to be about four times higher than normal.

5. Germany tightens immigration rules allegedly
The small coastal town is currently experiencing its biggest influx of refugees to date, with several thousand people turning up every week since the start of September, according to authorities.But out of 1,900 children who have arrived in Trelleborg over the last month without parents or older relatives, at least half are believed to have left the area without alerting officials, despite being given temporary accommodation there.“We don’t know where they are (…) We don’t have the possibility to stop them leaving. We can’t wait by their beds day and night,” Agneta Sjölund, Director of Trelleborg Municipality, told The Local.Sjölund said that most of the refugees had arrived in southern Sweden via ferries from Germany and had been registered in the town but not yet had their paperwork processed by Sweden’s Migration Agency (Migrationsverket), which made it more difficult to keep track of them.
The Archbishop of Valencia, Cardinal Antonio Cañizares, sparked controversy on Wednesday when he questioned whether welcoming refugees to Spain from Syria was such a good idea.
“What’s happening in Europe?” the Catholic bishop asked. “This invasion of immigrants… are they completely trustworthy? Where will it leave Spain in a few years?”
Cañizares was speaking during a forum on Europe and the Mediterranean organized by the New Economic Forum.
He also raised the question of whether refugees were coming to Spain “because they were being persecuted” arguing that “many are not”.
He called for “clarity” and to see “who is behind all this”.
“We must be clear headed and not let everyone in, because today it could be someone who gets along very well, but it is in fact the Trojan horse for European societies and specifically Spain.”
For regular readers, you may have noticed a bunch of anti-Jewish vitriol. I am told we were treated to this because one of the articles published yesterday got a ping back from a fairly Nazi site attracting a lot of people from knuckle draggers to fairly bright people writing half truths to blame Jews for everything. Soros of course provides a ton of fodder for them and Soros, while ethnically Jewish, was a concentration camp capo and is clearly anti-Israel as he funds BDS crap and is quite likely the power behind Obama in some ways. The problem with Soros is he is a progressive. Not that he is a Jew. And yeah, its true, there are a lot of those. But again, its being a progressive. There is nothing scripturally or ethnically Jewish that can be shown to be the source of Soros’ actions. And so for them, this fine video by Pat Condell.
Over the summer there was a great deal of concern about a muslim-only subsidized housing unit in Toronto that rejected a white non-denominational Canadian who was wheelchair bound for a subsidized apartment. Well no worries its not like anything like that could possibly exist in Ottawa, Im pretty sure that would be illegal to have government funds pay for discriminatory housing like that not to mention heavy subsidy on prayer space.
Lastly, a sad RIP to Ken Taylor. He was the Canadian diplomat that helped many American Embassy staff escape via a tunnel from the US embassy to the Canadian one when the current Iranian regime took over the US embassy and held them hostage, some of them for over a year. Mr. Taylor passed away today. He was a great Canadian hero and a symbol of what Western diplomatic staff should be.
I wonder if Obama will send a representative to his funeral. That would be telling indeed either way.
