VIENNA, Sept 24 (Reuters) – The European Union should set up a “giant refugee city” on the Libyan coast and process asylum claims from refugees arriving from Africa there with the help of a new Libyan government, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban proposed on Saturday.
Speaking in Vienna after a summit of European and Balkans countries on the refugee crisis, Orban said the European Union’s external borders should be under “total control” – including the Mediterranean border, in which Libya is instrumental. Continue reading »
UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Migratory policies around the world have failed, leading to the spread of terrorism, Hungary’s foreign minister told the U.N. General Assembly on Friday.
Peter Szijjarto said the international community must make it clear that there is no excuse for violating the borders between two peaceful countries and do its best to keep migrants and refugees as close to their home countries as possible. Continue reading »
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has railed against the political establishment’s migrant policy, calling for the deportation of over a million migrants from the European Union (EU).
Regularly at odds with EU leaders in Western Europe, the Hungarian Prime Minister has said that the political bloc needs to consider deporting over a million migrants who flooded into Europe over the last year, reportsSpiegel Online.Continue reading »
The Hungarian government is planning to use next month’s referendum on migrant quotas to expose the “stealth way the EU is working,” it’s official spokesman has announced.
At a meeting at the Hungarian Permanent Representation in Brussels, Hungarian government spokesman Zoltán Kovács revealed that the referendum question, to be put to the Hungarian people on October 2nd, will read: “Do you want to allow the European Union to mandate the resettlement of non-Hungarian citizens to Hungary, without the approval of the National Assembly?” Continue reading »
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán is the Eastern nemesis of the European elite. No one else in Europe except him speaks about defending “Christianity.”
“Those arriving have been raised in another religion, and represent a radically different culture. Most of them are not Christians, but Muslims … This is an important question, because Europe and the European identity is rooted in Christianity.” — Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.
The last chance to save Europe’s roots might well come from the former communist members of the EU — those who defeated the Ottomans in 1699 and now feel culturally threatened by their heirs.
Cypriots know much better than the comfortable bureaucrats of Brussels the consequences of a cultural collision. Ask about their churches on the Turkish side of the island; how many of them are still standing?
Austria’s fate is now at stake.
Perhaps it was a coincidence that Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, Archbishop of Vienna and tipped to be the next Pope, chose September 12, the anniversary of the Siege of Vienna, when Turkey’s Ottoman troops nearly conquered Europe, to deliver a most dramatic appeal to save Europe’s Christian roots.
“Many Muslims want and say that ‘Europe is finished’,” Cardinal Schönborn said, before accusing Europe of “forgetting its Christian identity.” He then denounced the possibility of “an Islamic conquest of Europe.”
Konrad Pesendorfer, head of the Austrian Office of Statistics, said that by 2030, 40% of the population of Vienna will be foreign-born, thanks to internal demography and migration flows (60,000 arrivals in just one year). Continue reading »
(REUTERS) – On a recent evening on Hungary’s border with Serbia, a fleet of police trucks raced along the dusty boundary.
A heat sensor trained on the razor wire fence had picked up migrants approaching, officers explained. The migrants, about two dozen in number, quickly split up and went back deep into Serbian territory, police said.
It was a scene that has played out many times in the months since Europe’s migrant crisis erupted.
“The human traffickers are never idle. Their night-vision drones watch our patrol system. They take advantage as soon as we redeploy our forces,” said police commander Zsolt Gulyas.
(REUTERS) – Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Friday the European Union’s Bratislava summit had failed to change the bloc’s immigration policy, which he called “self-destructive and naive.”
He said that without Germany imposing a firm ceiling on the number of immigrants it is willing to take in, a “suction effect” would continue to draw masses to Europe. “Something must happen in that respect,” he said.
Orban added that leaders of European nations along the Balkans migration route, including Austria and Germany, would meet in Vienna on Sept 24. to try to find a way forward.
ASOTTHALOM, Hungary (AP) — A new fence, electronic surveillance equipment and a paved road for police “border hunters” are all part of Hungary’s continuing efforts to stop the flow of migrants and refugees from the Middle East, Asia and Africa at its southern borders.
The government has not yet announced a timetable for the reinforced border projects, but the mayor of Asotthalom, a village on the Serbian border, said the fence built last year had already made a difference. Continue reading »
The name Rothschild is literally associated with wealth. This is because for over 200 years, the family has remained the most powerful and wealthy family in the world. Most of the Rothschild fortune has been made in the world of banking, but investments in other industries, such as coal, estates, and construction, have helped secure the family’s wealth and immense power.
One of the banks owned by the Rothschild group (the biggest banking group in the world) is the International Monetary Fund (IMF), AKA ’Imposing Misery and Famine’. Not only does the group make money off usurious interest rates at the misfortune of crumbling economies, it literally owns governments and people of power. Because it’s nearly impossible to escape the clutches of the banking group, news of IMF being booted from Hungary is being heralded as a victorious happening. Continue reading »
(REUTERS) – Hungary plans to build a second fence on its southern border with Serbia that would enable it to keep out any major new wave of migrants, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Friday.
Orban said the new barrier, to be built alongside the existing one, would strengthen defences to respond if Turkey’s policy on migration changed. If that happened, hundreds of thousands could appear at Hungary’s border, he told public radio.
“Technical planning is under way to erect a more massive defence system next to the existing line of defence which was built quickly (last year),” Orban said. Continue reading »
Hungary has announced plans to repay its bailout loan from the International Monetary Fund early and asked the organization to leave the country.
The head of Hungary’s Central Bank Gyorgy Matolcsy wrote a letter to IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde on Monday asking for it to close its representative office in Budapest as it was “not necessary to maintain” it any longer.
The IMF says it is ready to agree since the current IMF representative in Hungary is due to leave soon anyway. Continue reading »
While as previously reported the biggest political threat facing Europe in the coming months is Italy’s October referendum on Matteo Renzi’s overhaul of the political system aimed at ending Italy’s unstable governments (which as of this moment is not looking to good, with the latest Euromedia Research polls showing that 34% of Italians would vote against Renzi’s plan, with 28.9% in favor and 19.4% still undecided), a referendum which may cost the prime minister his job as Renzi has promised to resign if he does not get the needed support, another referendum has emerged overnight when as Reuters reports Hungary will hold a referendum on Oct. 2 on whether to accept any future European Union quota system for resettling migrants as Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s government steps up its fight against the EU’s migration policies.

If anyone wants a short course on what’s wrong with US diplomacy look no further than US Ambassador to Hungary Coleen Bell’s speech Friday to the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Hungarian Parliament. In typical diplo-speak there was plenty of flowery language about shared values, fish swimming together in the same water (?), sappy poetics like “together, out of that winter, we would force the spring,” and talk of together being “part of the world’s greatest military and political alliance.”
But make no mistake: Inside Ambassador Bell’s velvet glove is an iron fist, poised to strike should Washington’s annoyingly independent-minded Fidesz-led government step out of line on the big issues. And by “big” issues it should be understood that the US means the issues it considers in the interests of its own foreign policy, not those in Hungary’s interest.
It appears, just as we warned, that Brexit was indeed the first of many dominoes. Even before the Brexit result, a poll by Ipsos Mori showed that the majority of people in France and Italy want to at least have a referendum on leaving:
Meanwhile, over 40% of Swedes, Poles, and Belgians are in the same boat.
But now, as Martin Armstrong notes, Brussels simply went too far. They cross the line moving from an economic union to a political subordination of Europe. Now eight more countries want to hold referendums to exit the EU – France, Holland, Italy, Austria, Finland, Hungary, Portugal, and Slovakia all could leave.
As Norway offers cash for refugees to leave, announcing that they won’t be accepting any more refugees from the EU, and Switzerland prepares its military to close down borders, the EU has seemingly had enough of every country acting as if it has any type of sovereignty left. The European Commission has announced that it is going to pull rank on everyone, and in Obama-like fashion, will be fining countries for not taking their fair share of refugees.
If there’s one person who exemplifies anti-refugee sentiment in Europe more than anyone else, it’s not Frauke Petry, it’s not Geert Wilders, and it’s not Lutz Bachmann. It’s Viktor Orban.
Orban raised eyebrows in September of last year, when the Hungarian PM built a 110-mile, razor wire migrant-be-gone fence along his country’s border with Serbia.
But the fireworks began in earnest when dozens of refugees decided to try and break through the barrier. When the asylum seekers tested Orban’s resolve, riot police responded with water cannons and tear gas and that, as they say, was that when it came to traversing Hungary along the Balkan route to Germany.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has announced plans to call a referendum on mandatory migrant quotas proposed by the EU as a solution to the current crisis engulfing Europe. Orban hinted he hoped Hungarians would reject the plan.
Orban said that the referendum question would be: “Do you want the European Union to be able to mandatory settle non-Hungarian citizens in Hungary, even without the approval of the Hungarian Parliament?” The PM added that those who choose not to back the EU’s proposal and reject the plan would thus be supporting Hungary’s independence.

If we learned anything last September it’s that Janet Yellen’s reaction function now includes domestic and global financial markets.
Well that, and we learned that Hungarian PM Viktor Orban isn’t playing around when it comes to Europe’s worsening refugee crisis. While everyone else in Europe was busy trying to figure out how to accommodate the millions of asylum seekers fleeing the war-torn Mid-East, Orban simply built a razor wire border fence.
And then he built another one.
And then, when migrants tried to breach his barriers, he met them with water cannons and tear gas. This was the scene:
So clearly, Hungary isn’t playing around when it comes to security, but as it turns out, migrant-be-gone fences and tear gas aren’t sufficient in today’s dangerous security environment and so, the Hungarian central bank is stockpiling guns and ammo.
08/02/2016 – BUDAPEST, Hungary – Hungary applauds border controls
Hungary, the south-eastern European nation which reduced daily illegal migrant border crossings from 10,000 a day to just a couple of dozen by building a patrolled razorwire fence has congratulated Austria on making the first steps of securing their own border, reportsFrankfurter Allgemeine.
Austria had been last year the strongest critic of Hungary’s border plan, with some government figures even comparing the Hungarian government to Nazis for taking efforts to protect their borders. Hungarian leader Viktor Orban was last week presented with a gift painting by the people of Bulgaria to congratulate him on his efforts to protect Europe from Muslim mass migration.
Who in their right mind would want to let these violent bastards into their country???
When illegal intruders attacked the Hungarian border and policemans, the police used tear gas. After this event, photographers made some photos from two girl who probably breathed the gas. A bunch of people stood around the two girls (activists, photographers and two migrants). In a moment (4:01) perceptible, as one of the girl (blue backpack) trying to go from there, but a person pull back her to take photos. After these moments, the two sadist intruders (parents of girls ?!), dragged back the girls to the front (5:41), and provocate policemans to use tear gas again. The girls sobbed and tried to resist, but the sadistic migrants didn’t care. The activists and photographers didn’t mind it too, just watched, as intruders forcing the girls to the front.

ROSZKE, Hungary — Declaring a state of emergency, Hungary sealed off its southern border with Serbia on Tuesday and detained those trying to enter illegally, aiming to shut down the flow of migrants pouring in. Chaos ensued at the border, as hundreds of migrants piled up in a no man’s land, and Serbian officials reacted with outrage.
