  • Illiberal Democracy Versus Cultural Destruction…Big Change Coming to Europe

    09/20/2018 2:23:37 PM PDT · by Pavegecko · 2 replies ^ | 9/20/18 | L Todd Wood
    Western leftists likes to mock Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban when he infamously said that Hungary would pursue an “illiberal democracy” in opposition to Western European social democracy — which might more accurately be labeled as intolerant socialism. If one wants to be intellectually rigorous (not a virtue common among liberals), it’s necessary to dig deeper into Mr. Orban’s concept to see what he is actually talking about. The big beef that Hungary and other Central European nations have with European liberal democracies is that they are not liberal at all. They are totalitarian, especially if you do not share...

  • Poland ‘Worried’ About EU Vote To Censure Hungary

    09/15/2018 3:32:23 PM PDT · by Pavegecko · 5 replies ^ | 9/15/18 | L Todd Wood
    The Central European nation of Poland has expressed ‘worry’ over the EU Parliament’s decision to move forward in legal action against Poland’s fellow Visegrad member, Hungary, over what Brussels says is a ‘systematic threat’ to the European Union. In reality, it seems the EU is worried that these nations standing up for their own security and Christian culture could lead to a further split from the culturally Marxist edicts coming from Western European capitals. Poland on Wednesday said it was very worried by the European Parliament’s rare decision to launch a procedure against Hungary for posing a “systemic threat” to...

    The National Catholic Register ^ | 9/14/18 | Ed Pentin
    In an interview with the Register, Péter Szijjártó explains why he believes his government’s EU-opposed immigration policy is necessary to preserve Hungary’s and Europe’s Christian heritage. In recent years, Hungary has been almost alone in Europe in fighting to retain its Christian heritage and to preserve its Christian identity in the face of a European Union that has tried to do the opposite. And it has done so largely through what some see as a “hardline” immigration policy, but which the country’s government insists is a sensible policy of controlled immigration (it opposes illegal and irregular immigration and favors tight...

    Mr Farage spoke highly about the country’s leader Viktor Orban and urged him to not stand to be lectured by the EU but instead follow the UK’s lead and simply leave the bloc. The comments come a day before MEPs are set to vote on whether to trigger Article 7, which is an EU law drafted to ensure respect for democracy and the rule of law as they are worried Hungary is becoming a dictatorship. Mr Orban has said that triggering Article 7 would be an “abuse of power” of the EU. Brussels is concerned with Mr Orban's attitude towards...

    The European Parliament has voted to pursue unprecedented disciplinary action against Hungary over alleged breaches of the EU's core values. Prime Minister Viktor Orban's government has been accused of attacks on the media, minorities, and the rule of law - charges which he denies. More than two-thirds of MEPs backed the censure motion - the first such vote against a member state under EU rules. If also approved by national leaders, Hungary could face punitive measures. The ultimate sanction, the suspension of Hungary's voting rights, is unlikely as Poland is likely to veto any such move

    Hungary's PM Viktor Orban has accused the EU of "insulting" his country, as its parliament began considering disciplinary action against Hungary. MEPs are debating whether his right-wing government's policies on issues like migrants pose a threat to the EU. It comes just months after the European Commission took the step of launching similar proceedings against Poland.
  • Hungary’s Tough Border Laws Pushing Asylum Seekers To Go Elsewhere

    The Central European nation of Hungary has figured out how to stop the migrant crisis in Europe – make it miserable for those seeking to enter the country. It is working – big league. The government of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has been vocally defiant against edicts from Brussels to resettle more economic migrants from North Africa and the Middle East into the country, fearing a loss of security and Christian heritage. Hungary has passed a series of laws to criminalize the enabling of migration and to make it easier to turn away those pushing to cross the border....

    France does not want to finance a populist Europe, the country’s foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian has indicated, just as the fight over the EU’s new long-term budget begins in earnest. These strong words were said in Paris on Wednesday during the annual conference of French ambassadors, a meeting at which the French head of diplomacy officially indicates the most important directions of the country’s foreign policy. 71-year-old Le Drian, who after the victory of French President Emmanuel Macron took the helm of French diplomacy, said that France and Germany intend to work out a common position on migration before...

    The Hungarian government is openly asking “What’s wrong with the Swedes?” as the Scandinavian country’s pro-immigration government lashes out at Budapest, while the leader of Poland’s governing Law and Justice Party has said his country must avoid Western Europe’s “social diseases”. In a public blog post on the official About Hungary website, Hungarian government spokesman Zoltán Kovács posed the question: “Why are these senior Swedish figures portraying Hungary as Europe’s bogeyman, spreading falsehoods and distorting facts about our government’s policies on migration? Could it have something to do with the fact that the country faces general elections on September 9th?”...

I am astonished at the stupor of a political left that now exists only to challenge others and believes that Milan should not host the president of a European country, as if the left has the authority to decide who has the right to speak and who does not -- and then they wonder why no one votes for them anymore." — Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini.

    During talks in Milan this week, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Salvini and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban agreed to work together to end the mass migration into the European Continent from North Africa and the Middle East, which has destroyed Europe’s security and threatens its Christian heritage. The two leaders pledged to extend their movement in Europe “that excludes socialists and the left, that brings back to the center the values and identity”. “We are near a historic change on a continental level,” declared Salvini. “We agreed that the most important issue is migration,” Orban said. “Europe needs a new...
  • European Court Rules Hungary Must Feed Migrants On Border Whose Asylum Requests Have Been Rejected

    The European Court of Human Rights has ruled Hungary must feed migrants on its border with Serbia who have applied for asylum but their applications have been rejected. The asylum seekers are appealing the decision. The Central European nation has been at odds with the European Union’s policy of open borders for some time. The EU is taking legal action against the Hungarian government. Hungary’s parliament in June passed laws that criminalize giving some kinds of help to illegal immigrants. Hungary also said it would not accept asylum applications from migrants arriving via a country where they are deemed safe...

    Evangelical leaders have responded to the New York Times' claim that the Trump administration is undermining its own priority of protecting religious freedom by emphasizing the policy priorities of evangelical Christians. On Saturday, The New York Times editorial board published an opinion piece titled "A Too-Narrow Vision of Religious Freedom." The piece essentially argues that although "the Trump administration embraces a laudable desire to expand religious tolerance" across the globe, it is the administration's "own intolerance toward some" that "undermines the message." For examples of intolerance, NYT mentions "Trump's disgraceful attempts to ban Muslims from some countries from entering the...

Der Standard reported the Austrian Chancellor [pictured above, left] held a telephone conversation with Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, in which the pair agreed that the situation with migrants being ferried across the Mediterranean was not sustainable. “We are both of the opinion that the EU cannot just allow every ship to dock,” said Kurtz, urging other nations in the bloc to close their ports to boats carrying illegal...

    The foundation run by US billionaire George Soros said Thursday that the last of its operations in Hungary would cease by August 31, with its activities being transferred to Berlin. The Open Society Foundations (OSF) announced in May that it was leaving Hungary, citing what it called the “repressive” policies of nationalist firebrand Prime Minister Viktor Orban.
