    After a sustained campaign against the influence of left-wing billionaire George Soros by the Hungarian government, Soros’s Central European University has announced its plans to move from Budapest to Vienna. The Central European University (CEU) has come under fire from the Hungarian government which had previously claimed it was unfair that the institution was allowed to give out both Hungarian and U.S. diplomas while not operating a campus in the USA. Now, the university has announced that it has plans to leave Budapest and move to neighbouring Austria where a new campus will be set up, Swedish radio broadcaster Sveriges...

    BUDAPEST (Reuters) - George Soros' Open Society Foundations will close their office in Budapest and move their eastern European operations to Berlin, Austria's Die Presse newspaper reported on Thursday. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has blamed Soros, a Hungarian-born U.S. financier, for a host of ills and pushed through legislation cracking down on non-governmental organizations called the "Stop Soros" laws which drew international criticism. The Hungarian news web site 444.hu said the Open Society Foundations office would shut by Aug. 31 and move first to Vienna then on to Berlin. Reuters was not been able to immediately reach the Open...
  • Interview With Identitarian Activist Reveals Entry to Britain Requires Acceptance of 'Islamisation'

    Breitbart London has obtained the official UK Border Force interview with Hungarian Identitarian leader Abel Bodi, who was refused entry to the UK Friday. The interview — which sees Bodi admit to opposing “Islamisation” — was used as “evidence” of the activist’s “extremist views”. The document, which is part of the overall package given to Bodi, contains 13 pages of questions asked by the UK Border Force including what Mr. Bodi’s beliefs are on mass migration, Islamisation, and other issues. The resulting answers were then given as justification for refusing to allow Bodi to enter the country to speak at...

    Tens of thousands of anti-government protesters marched Saturday in the Hungarian capital of Budapest, demanding a new election and a new national electoral system in the biggest opposition rally in years. Prime Minister Viktor Orban was re-elected for a fourth term last week. His right-wing populist Fidesz party won a supermajority in the national assembly, with preliminary results showing that Fidesz and tiny ally the Christian Democratic party won 134 seats in the 199-seat legislature.

    BUDAPEST: Hungary's nationalist Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Tuesday (Apr 10) that his resounding election win, challenged by the opposition, shows that voters want to stop US billionaire philanthropist George Soros interfering in the country. However the largest opposition party has demanded that the National Elections Office investigate alleged irregularities in the conduct of Sunday's poll. At a news conference with international media two days after cruising to his third straight term, Orban said his government had already drawn up a "Stop Soros" package of legislation. "The reason we submitted this package before the elections is in order to...

    Hungary’s Viktor Orbán is seeking his third consecutive term in office as his country goes to the polls today. But instead of just the traditional electoral battles between candidates, Orbán must face an even greater threat: George Soros and the Globalist establishment. As an outspoken critic of not just Soros but the whole agenda he supports, Orbán is enemy number one in the eyes of those who seek to destroy nation state democracy.

    If the Huffington Post is to be believed, a bigoted Prime Minister in Hungary is leading the nation in a dangerous, ultra-right direction, to the consternation of the populace. If the election results are to be believed, a courageous Hungarian leader is standing against a sea of political correctness, with the support of the populace. I’d say in this case, the Hungarian people have a better sense of reality than does the Huffington Post.Sunday’s elections resulted in a decisive win for Prime Minister Viktor Orban and his Fidesz party. (This will mark Orban’s third consecutive term.) It was also a victory against Hungarian-born...

    Viktor Orban, Hungary’s strongman, right-wing prime minister, soared to reelection victory on Sunday with a powerful supermajority in parliament — precisely the margin he needed to continue an overhaul of the country’s democratic constitution and system of checks and balances. On Monday morning, hours after the election results were announced, Orban’s representatives announced one of the first orders of business: What they are calling the “Stop Soros” bill is designed to crack down on liberal nongovernmental organizations, think tanks and other institutions that, in the eyes of the government, have worked against their agenda and on behalf of the migrants...

    The victory could embolden Orban to put more muscle into a Central European alliance against EU migration policies, working with other right-wing nationalists in Poland and Austria, and further expose cracks in the 28-nation European Union. The European Commission said it was looking forward to working with Hungary on many challenges. On Monday, a spokesman for Fidesz said one of the first laws to be passed by the new parliament could be legislation that would empower the government to ban NGOs that support migration and pose a "national security risk". The proposed legislation, dubbed "Stop Soros" by the government before...

    If you judge Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and his Fidesz party by their enemies, then their sweeping victory yesterday, winning a third term, was a triumph for good. Reuters calls him a "strongman" in its report of his victory, a term usually reserved for undemocratic dictators. The Associated Press settles for "conservative" as its headline adjective – no compliment in its lexicon, but accurate. But the journalists are being outdone by globalist politicians in Western Europe. The AP reports: Luxembourg's foreign minister says Germany, France and others should weigh in against what he calls a "tumor" of scaremongering after...

    Hungary’s conservative-populist premier Viktor Orbán has won a third term in office in a landslide election victory. With the votes counted, Europe Elects is sharing stats which show Fidesz, the party founded by Prime Minister Orbán while he was a young anti-Communist dissident, has won not merely a decisive majority but an outright super-majority, along with minor allied parties — allowing changes to the national constitution. Far-right nationalist party Jobbik came in second place, but leader Gábor Vona has resigned from the party which he has headed since 2006, having promised to do so if he failed to achieve a...

    Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban easily won a third consecutive term Sunday and his Fidesz party was poised to regain its super majority in parliament, according to preliminary results from the country's election. With 84.7 percent of the votes counted, Fidesz and its small ally, the Christian Democrat party, had secured 133 of the 199 seats in the legislature, the minimum needed for a two-thirds majority. The right-wing nationalist Jobbik party placed second with 26 seats, while a Socialist-led, left-wing coalition ran third with 20.

    With Hungarians set to go to the polls on Sunday, a spokesman for the Prime Minister has warned organisations sponsored by billionaire financier George Soros are working to blackmail the country into accepting mass migration. Labelling a leaked European Union paper a “Soros report” designed to force Hungary to bow to EU pressure to accept mass migration and other diktats, Zoltán Kovács said Hungarians would never accept the demands. Remarking that changes proposed to the Dublin regulations which govern the movement of asylum seekers within the bloc would soon make Hungary taking migrants mandatory, Kovács recalled how, “In recent weeks...
  • Mythical Viking Sunstones Could Have Worked

    04/04/2018 8:49:40 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 26 replies
    Physicists from Eötvös Loránd University in Hungary have determined that the sunstones claimed to be used by Vikings to navigate on foggy and cloudy days could provide accurate results. Vikings living between 900 and 1200AD did not have magnetic compasses, and their ability to navigate was attributed in part to the use of calcite, cordierite or tourmaline crystals which functioned as linear polarizers to help them determine geographic north. The crystals can split sunlight into two beams, and when the crystal is turned, splitting the two beams at the same brightness, a navigator could see the polarized rings around the...

    When Hungarians head to the polls on April 8, they will not just be deciding about their country’s future for the next four years, but for many decades to come, the prime minister said in an interview to a local broadcaster in south-western Hungary’s Nagykanizsa on Thursday. “This will not be a regular election,” Viktor Orban said. “There is a struggle going on in Europe,” Orban said. At the centre of it is the question of which countries will get to “stay out of the global trend which creates immigrant countries taking in more and more mixed populations, cultures and...

    WARSAW, Poland - The president of the Polish bishops’ conference cautioned Polish and Hungarian political leaders against fostering nationalism and xenophobia as both countries face European Union sanctions over their alleged authoritarian direction. Archbishop Stanislaw Gadecki of Poznan acknowledged that patriotism “characterizes our nations and is a great value,” but urged vigilance so that patriotic values do not “give rise to … contempt for others.” “Given our common history, we should strive to be linked not just by a shared past, but also by a shared future,” Gadecki said in his homily March 23 at a Mass for Polish-Hungarian Friendship...

    A Swedish MP who was elected to the Riksdag as part of the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats and was recently removed from their list for the 2018 general election has revealed that he wants to become an immigrant in Hungary in order to escape immigration. Kent Ekeroth told newspaper Svenska Dagbladet (SvD) that Sweden should learn from Hungary, where he will emigrate later this year, because they have “no immigration”. “To start with, they have no immigration. That’s the most important thing. And they value their own culture highly and the grounds on which European civilization rests,” he said. Ekeroth’s name...

    Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has said that “Europe is full” and that following the gains of pro-sovereignty parties in recent elections, the EU can no longer “bury its head in the sand” over peoples’ rejection of mass migration. The conservative Prime Minister told Kossuth Radio’s Sunday News listeners that he fundamentally rejected the migration proposals put forward at the EU Council summit last week “because the proposal presented by them focuses on and aims at the admission and distribution of immigrants”. “Europe is full,” Prime Minister Orbán said. “Its external borders must be defended, and migrants must not be...
