"Exciting Step Forward" - Helicopter Drop Of Debit Cards For Refugees In Turkey

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Michael Shedlock via MishTalk.com,

The largest ever humanitarian program in the history of the EU, is now underway in Turkey.

The humanitarian effort comes in the form of a $393 million helicopter drop of Debit Cards and Cash to Refugees in Turkey as Part of Migration Deal.



As many as one million refugees in Turkey will receive debit cards and monthly cash transfers to help pay for food and housing under a new €348 million ($393 million) humanitarian program from the European Union announced on Thursday.


The EU’s largest-ever humanitarian program is part of a €3 billion package of assistance the bloc promised Turkey to support some three million refugees the country hosts, mainly from Syria.


“The European Union is keeping its promise to assist Turkey in hosting the largest refugee population in the world,” Mr. Stylianides said. When it comes to humanitarian assistance, “our cooperation with Turkish authorities has been excellent,” he added.


The new EU aid program will be overseen by the World Food Program, in cooperation with the Turkish Red Crescent. Each family’s need will be assessed individually and there are additional funds available for education or supporting elderly family members, Mr. Stylianides said.


Ertharin Cousin, the WFP’s executive director, said the debit-card project “is an exciting step forward.”


“The money spent by the refugees will go directly into local economies, giving a boost to communities so generously hosting refugees,” she added.


Of the €3 billion pledged, the EU has now earmarked projects valued at €2.2 billion for Turkey’s refugees, including humanitarian aid and programs to provide health, education and other services for migrants.


Of that amount, €652 million has been contracted and €181 million has been spent.

How Far Will €3 billion Go?

The EU pledged €3 billion. There are 3 million refugees.

If no more refugees arrive (fat chance), and none of the money disappears down some graft-hole (fat chance), then each refugee will get €1,000.

Exciting First Step

This is indeed an “exciting step”. Let’s look ahead at the logical progression of following steps.

Step-by-Step Progression

  1. More refugees will seek free handouts.
  2. Turkey will complain €3 billion is not enough.
  3. The refugees will complain €1,000 is not enough.
  4. EU citizens will wonder why refugees are getting €1,000 and they are not.
  5. Demands for an EU-wide helicopter drop of free debit cards will soar.
  6. The amounts demanded will soar.
  7. Some economist will propose the debit cards will expire if not used quickly.
  8. And then, and then ….

Point eight requires an explanation:

Under Eurozone rules the ECB cannot simply print money and give it away. Countries have budget constraints.


So, either taxes go up to pay for the scheme, or the EMU rules have to change.

Place your bets. More excitement is sure to follow.

Yay… free fiat…

Just wait until reality hits and those at the end of the giveaway find out the fiat ain't worth as much as it used to be.

This action is sooo tasteless!!!  Don't they realize that this sort of thing is best done in an arena?

Well, it could be worse.

Government might try to control how the fiat flows into the false economy…

Oh, wait……..

I can't believe Merkel has not yet been sedated and tied up in a room somewhere.

How can such an obvious lunatic be let out off a leash.

How can the Germans still take her seriously.

perhaps they want us to fight among ourselves more than admitting how deeply duped they got our entire world into.. sad attempt of hiding out while lower tier humans destroy eachother..


so where is society's boiling point?

Free Money for the banks!
Free Money for the military!
Free Money for the illegal murdering immgrants!

For you and your family? A hard dry fuck!

Say, why aren't you enjoying it?

because it might feel sort of good at the beginning of the reaming.

butt. the soreness will come..

(from what I have observed on the Internet.. not that I would ever do something like that.. except in extreme situations, in full view of the public, with large groups of people.)

The USD $2Quadrillion the bankers owe humanity is most fairly distributed as $285K to each person on the planet. Either dribbled slowly or all at once which will really perk up the economy.

This will hurt the right-wing parties in Europe. <sarc>

There's going to be a lot of "zionists" that will be very disappointed when they find out they are on the outside, looking in:


PS- Cheesepopes won't like this video- way too much truth.

peddling-fiction's picture

Hi Seek_Truth, do you have a list of Evangelical churches (and others) that do remember and repeat John 8:37-59

Seek_Truth's picture

I wish I did.

But if you look at the credits after Steven Anderson and Texe Marrs movie. "Marching Towards Zion" (posted above) you'll get a sampling.

There are many of us who the Holy Spirit has taught well.

The Synagogue of Satan is being exposed- just as Jesus said they would.

peddling-fiction's picture

Even the Catholics stopped talking about that most important message by Jesus some time ago.

I am spreading the Word in person down here in Bolivia, and the persecution is heating up.

Not suprised though.

No fear and God Bless.

Seek_Truth's picture

You're doing what the Lord instructed, brother!

Let everyone hear His word.

By their acceptance, or rejection of His message,

They will be judged by Him.

Sheep and goats.

Wheat and chaff.

Wheat and weeds.

Good vs evil.

Live your life by his words for

actions speak louder than words

I'd rather see a sermon- than hear one, any day!

My boss, in the early 1980's, spoke those words to me.

I have never found them to be false, in any way.

Unfortunately, talk is cheap and

easier to squeeze money out of.

You have spoken an indictment against yourself?

PS- Looks that way to me.

Next step, Soros will buy them all plane tickets to Europe.  Plus a few million more Turks, Kurds, Somalis, Afghanis, etc.

LOL. Yes. But it's not here. And it's a bargain at 10x the price.

But there more: if they buy passage to Germany, thet can double their debt card & get free housing!

I think Soros already has a system to move them into USA

LetThemEatRand's picture

That makes sense.  Give the "free" money to new immigrants instead of the tax payers who funded it/need it.  No hidden agenda there.  None at all.

pathosattrition's picture

Taxpayers don't really fund anything where public debt persists. Children do.

LetThemEatRand's picture

True.  You can't have true neo-feudalism without indebting the children first.

And the money finds the right people in the end . . . the top of the pyramid.  What else makes sense? 

Great thing about refugees is they must pay rent and buy food they cannot grow.  Captive market for the local capital class.

css1971's picture

I believe the key point is the refugees are still outside the EU, and will remain so.

OverTheHedge's picture

The refugees want to come to Europe. It costs money to get to Europe. Give refugees money, and what happens next? All the refugee will suddenly decide to stay in a squalid, overcrowded camp with winter on the way?

Good job the Balkan route is closed.

All a refugee needs to do is get their feet wet, and they get free delivery to Italy, now with €1,000 in their pocket. This will be confiscated at the border, and added to GDP, but the immigrant gets to stay in free housing, with free food and free access to ladies.

Damn, this is such a good idea, I could have thought of it.

Overdrawn's picture

So were bribing them to stay out of Europe!  It would be a lot easier and cheeper to ........................  add your own solution.

What does that say about you?

taxpayers are saving instead of spending fuck them

remember the UN expects the ideal citizen to be a PRODUCER AND A CONSUMER

Probably a good move they didn't run this humanitarian relief program through the Clinton Foundation...

Refugees would get $4.98 after admin fees for Clinton foundation
