EU CIVIL WAR: ‘I Must FIGHT HIM!’ Hungary’s Orban Issues Shock Warning to Macron

  • EU CIVIL WAR: ‘I Must FIGHT HIM!’ Hungary’s Orban Issues Shock Warning to Macron
    by HARVEY GAVIN, https://www.express.co.uk/
    HUNGARIAN Prime Minister Viktor Orban has vowed to stand up to Europe’s “pro-immigration forces” led by Emmanuel Macron, warning the French leader: “I must fight you”.

    Mr Orban, whose right-wing government has presided over a crackdown on immigration, said his issue with Mr Macron was “nothing personal” but that he had a duty to oppose him on the issue. Speaking at a press conference earlier today, the Hungarian firebrand said: “There is no denying that Emmanuel Macron is an important figure, moreover, the leader of the pro-immigration forces. “It is nothing personal, but a matter of our countries’ future.

    “If what he wants with regards to migration materialises in Europe, that would be bad for Hungary, therefore I must fight him.” Mr Orban’s warning to the French leader comes as other EU countries including Italy and Poland look to shift the balance of power in Brussels in this year’s European Parliament elections.

Italy’s Salvini Suggests ‘European Spring’ to Bring End to ‘German-French Axis’ on Continent

  • Italy’s Salvini Suggests ‘European Spring’ to Bring End to ‘German-French Axis’ on Continent
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Italy’s Euroskeptic deputy prime minister Matteo Salvini has said he wants Italy and Poland to join together to create a “European Spring” which could end the long-standing French and German domination on the continent.

    Speaking during a press conference with Polish Interior Minister Joachim Brudziński in Warsaw on Wednesday, Salvini said that Poland and Italy “will be part of the new spring of Europe, the renaissance of European values” which would create a “new equilibrium” where the dominance of France and Germany is diminished.

    The leader of the Northern League party said that upcoming European parliamentary elections, set for May, could lead away from a Europe “that is run by bureaucrats.”

    Salvini, who is aiming to forge alliances with other Eurosceptic parties across Europe ahead of the elections, was in Warsaw for meetings with members of Poland’s ruling Law and Justice party, which shares a similar anti-immigration and anti-Brussels ideology. At the meeting, Brudziński also praised Salvini’s immigration policy and his decision to close Italian ports to migrant boats, saying that Poland was also committed to “strengthening borders.”

    At a press conference with France’s right-wing National Rally leader Marine Le Pen in October, Salvini promised a new era of “common sense” was coming to Europe with the rise of nationalist parties.

    Salvini’s Northern League formed a coalition government with the anti-establishment Five Star Movement in June last year. M5S leader Luigi Di Maio has also been seeking to make friends with other anti-establishment parties across the continent, holding meetings with a number of party leaders from Poland, Croatia and Finland who share similar values.

Polish PM: Federal EU Superstate ‘Not What Europeans Desire’

https://t.co/O3uZaCnafa

  • Polish PM: Federal EU Superstate ‘Not What Europeans Desire’
    by Virginia Hale, https://www.breitbart.com/
    Emmanuel Macron’s dream of a federal EU is “far from” what ordinary Europeans desire, the Polish prime minister has said, declaring that “the only realistic solution is to build a Europe of nations”.

    In an interview with Le Figaro this week, Mateusz Morawiecki told the French newspaper that their president’s vision of a Brussels-run federal EU superstate is “far from what the peoples [of Europe] desire” and is “detached from reality”.

    Highlighting another difference in outlook between the governments in Paris and Warsaw, Morawiecki said he failed to grasp what Macron meant when he asserted last year that “there is no French culture”.

    “I do not agree with this, and I think — on the contrary — that the culture of France is one of the greatest in the world,” the Polish leader stated, going on to highlight wider cultural differences between the continent’s west and east.

Gold Reserves Surge 1,000% In Hungary As It Joins Poland, Russia, China and Other Central Banks Buying Gold

Remember the Golden Rule: “He who has the gold Rules!” © Reuters

  • Gold Reserves Surge 1,000% In Hungary As It Joins Poland, Russia, China and Other Central Banks Buying Gold
    by https://news.goldcore.com/
    … Here is our Friday digest of the important news, commentary, charts and videos we were informed by this week including our special podcast on Direct Access Gold.

    From our perspective, the most important developments were the IMF’s financial warnings and the escalation in central bank gold buying with Hungary increasing its gold reserves by a whopping 1,000% due to increasing “safety concerns.”

    For the first time since 1986, Hungary’s central bank is buying gold bullion – a lot of gold bullion. The Eastern-European country announced that it had boosted its gold reserves ten-fold, up to 31.5 tons. It not only dramatically increased its reserves but also repatriated the gold from the Bank of England to Budapest due to concerns about “financial stability”.

    Central banks in Europe are diversifying into gold or moving to repatriate and take “possession in country.” Hungary and Poland are the most recent central banks to do this but they follow in the footsteps of Austria, Netherlands and the powerful German Bundesbank all of which have been repatriating their gold from the Bank of England and the Federal Reserve in recent months and years.

What Consent? Hungary, Poland & Czech Republic Deny Sealing Migrant Deal with Merkel

Provider: CartoonArts International / The New York Times Syndicate

  • What Consent? Hungary, Poland & Czech Republic Deny Sealing Migrant Deal with Merkel
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Three EU countries have denied reaching any final agreement with Germany on the return of migrants to the country of entry, despite Angela Merkel’s claim she’d received “political consent” from 14 EU nations to strike such a deal.

    “No such deal has been reached,”
     spokesman for Hungary’s government Zoltan Kovacs said, adding that Budapest has repeatedly rejected German attempts to “return” migrants to their first country of entry into the EU. Similar statements have been produced by Poland and the Czech Republic, which also denied reaching any agreements on the matter.


    “There are no any new agreements regarding the reception of asylum seekers from EU countries, we confirm (that), like the Czech Republic and Hungary,”
     Polish Foreign Ministry spokesman Artur Lompart said.


    Earlier on Saturday, media reported that, during the EU summit, 14 European countries, including some outspoken opponents of German Chancellor’s ‘open door’ policy, had allegedly “consented on a political level” to make a deal on taking migrants back. The document on the deal has been sent by Merkel to her coalition partners, according to Reuters.

    “At the moment, Dublin repatriations from Germany succeed in only 15 percent of cases,”
     the document says, as quoted by Reuters. “We will sign administrative agreements with various member states… to speed the repatriation process and remove obstacles.”

    According to the EU agreement on migrants, known as the Dublin Accord, the country of “first entry”is responsible for accommodating new arrivals. If the applicant moves to another EU state, that state may request the “country of the first entry” to take the applicant back. In practice, the “first entry” provision effectively means that the first country to actually register a migrant becomes ultimately responsible for them. Such practice has caused tensions between the EU members, with Greece and Italy repeatedly accused of pushing migrants deeper into Europe, without registering them. The Dublin Accord was largely suspended, following Merkel’s landmark decision to open borders and welcome all migrants to Germany, made in 2015.

Poland to Vote on EU Membership, Christian Heritage in Proposed Constitution Referendum. Government Declares Jesus Christ the King of Poland

  • Poland to Vote on EU Membership, Christian Heritage in Proposed Constitution Referendum. Government Declares Jesus Christ the King of Poland
    by Virginia Hale, http://www.breitbart.com/
    Questions on EU membership, support for the traditional family, and Europe’s “more than 1,000-year-old Christian heritage” have been included in referendum plans put forward by Poland’s conservative president.

    President Andrzej Duda on Tuesday put forward 15 questions that citizens should be asked in a referendum planned for later this year, which will be the first vote of its kind for Poland since it joined the bloc.

    Both domestic and international matters are covered in the issues Duda proposed Poles be consulted on in the wide-ranging referendum, which is set to give people a voice on whether to update the nation’s post-Communism 1997 constitution.

    Presented by the president after a meeting with his advisory forum, the National Development Council, one question is on whether the nation’s constitution should be guaranteed primacy over European and international law and if it should anchor Poland’s EU membership.

    Citizens would be asked whether they believe that Europe’s “more than 1,000-year-old Christian heritage” should be highlighted in the constitution, “as an important source of our traditions, culture and national identity”.

    Set to be held almost 30 years since Poland was liberated from Communism, it could also ask whether to strengthen the elected president’s authority with regards to foreign policy and the armed forces, along with whether NATO membership should be guaranteed in the constitution.

    Other proposed questions include asking whether voters back “strengthening of the position of the family, including the protection of fatherhood rights alongside motherhood rights”; if the constitution should enshrine family aid and the right to “special medical aid” for pregnant women, children, disabled people, and the elderly; and whether it should allow greater use of referendums.

    Emphasising that the list may be subject to change, the president said that there will be a consultation period in which the questions are finalised and then submitted to the Senate in a formal request for a referendum.

    Since the patriotic, conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party was elected to power in 2015, the government’s opposition to mass migration directives from the EU has seen relations between Warsaw and Brussels deteriorate.

    The proposed constitution comes amid rising Church attendance in the central European country, which in recent years saw the nation’s parliament voting to phase out Sunday shopping to give families more time together, and the government declaring Jesus Christ the King of Poland.

    Polling data reported by Breitbart London last month found PiS enjoying a huge lead, while support for the Europhile Civic Platform (PO) party — which was booted from power after agreeing to allow the EU to distribute third world migrants in Poland — had collapsed to just 14 per cent.

Polish Politician: Ex-Spy Skripal Was ‘Highly Likely’ Poisoned by CIA

  • Emphasis mine:
  • Polish Politician: Ex-Spy Skripal Was ‘Highly Likely’ Poisoned by CIA
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    The poisoning of Sergei Skripal is continuing to make waves in the international community. In solidarity with the UK, some European countries together with the US have expelled Russian diplomats over the matter.

    Russia’s Foreign Ministry has responded to these moves by saying that “Britain’s allies are blindly following the principle of Euro-Atlantic unity at the expense of common sense, the rules of civilized state-to-state dialogue and the principles of international law.” All this, because, according to Theresa May, the suspicion will fall on Russia. Sputnik discussed this issue with the chairman of the party “Liberty” (Wolność) Janusz Korwin-Mikke.

    Sputnik:
     Mr. Chairman, does this comply with the international law? What is your opinion?

    Janusz Korwin-Mikke: First of all, there is no such thing as international law. Secondly, you need to have evidence to blame somebody. And I absolutely agree with Vladimir Putin who said either you provide evidence or apologize. This formulation of the question is very clear. Allegations of the use of chemical weapons can only be considered as a comedy play.

    This is ridiculous. If I offer you a shot of meth and you get poisoned, would it also be considered the usage of chemical weapons? Definitely. There is such a concept in investigative practice as “is fecit, cui prodest” (it’s done by someone who benefits from it – editor’s note).

    In my opinion it was done by the CIA. It was the CIA who presented false data on Iraq’s weapons and things like that. It was the CIA who was interested in turning American and global public opinion against Russia.

    There are certain powerful and influential circles in America which are striving for war with Russia and China and they are doing their best to get this war. This was highly likely done by the CIA. I would bet one to five as Russia has no interest in that at all. Using the similarity to the Litvinenko case, the CIA acted the same way in order to blame Russia. I don’t believe that Russia is responsible for the poisoning of Sergei Skripal. Someone from Russia rightly said that Russia definitely wouldn’t do that in the lead-up to Mundial.

    Sputnik:
     It is absurd to accuse Russia of this attack because everything has turned against it.

    Janusz Korwin-Mikke: Yes, certainly. My colleague Michalkiewicz said that the Russians are good chess players and they surely wouldn’t do anything that foolish. I don’t believe in that at all.

EU REVOLT: Polish PM Reveals the TWELVE Nations Ready to TOPPLE Macron and Merkel’s Agenda

  • EU REVOLT: Polish PM Reveals the TWELVE Nations Ready to TOPPLE Macron and Merkel’s Agenda
    by OLI SMITH, https://www.express.co.uk/
    POLAND’S Prime Minister has revealed the 12 countries that are ready to mount a revolt against the establishment EU agenda set by Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel, in what could be a fundamental power shift in Brussels.

    Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki dropped an EU bombshell during an interview this week, as he suggested that 12 countries could form an alliance to defeat the Franco-German pursuit of a more integrated and centralised Europe.

    Speaking at the German Marshall Fund Brussels Forum this week,  Mr Morawiecki said that Mrs Merkel had lost her dominance in Europe since her dismal domestic election. The revelation came in response to a question on whether the agenda in Brussels will change, given the surge in eurosceptic political parties.

    He was pressed on whether he had “different ideas of changing Europe to the Franco-German motor which is more integration, more centralisation, more Europe”. Mr Morawiecki fired back against this approach in Brussels, saying: “More Europe is simply a buzzword that is popular in certain countries.

    “I heard just today that eight countries of the north in Europe – these are not from the Visegrad grouping but the Danes, the Dutch, they now oppose the domination of the Franco-German dimension.”

    The Polish leader’s remarks was citing the report issued by the eight northern European countries that cautioned against Mr Macron and Mrs Merkel’s ambitious political plans. Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands and Sweden hit out at the Franco-German proposals for deepening eurozone integration. They said the integration plans should focus on areas where member states are already close to a compromise.

    This comes just as the German ‘grand coalition’ formed last week, which will prompt Chancellor Angela Merkel to continue talks about reforming the 19-country currency bloc with French President Emmanuel Macron. Mr Morawiecki claimed these eight countries view Brussels with a sceptism similar to the Visegrad group, which includes Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Hundreds Of Tanks And Howitzers From The United States Arrive In Poland

  • Hundreds Of Tanks And Howitzers From The United States Arrive In Poland
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com/
    One day before Russia kicked off its “Zapad 2017” military exercise, dubbed the “biggest display of Russian military power since the end of the Cold War”, on September 13 American military equipment arrived in the port of Gdansk, Radio Poland reports, where more than a thousand pieces of American military equipment from the Second Anti-tank Brigade Combat Team were unloaded at the port, including Abrams tanks, Bradley combat vehicles, Paladin howitzers and other combat equipment. This is the first shipment of equipment to arrive in Poland under the initiative Operation Atlantic Resolve according to UA Wire.

    According to the General Commander of Poland’s Armed Forces, General Jaroslaw Mika, the equipment will be used during military exercises. “This military equipment, which we see today, will be located in the western part of Poland. I mean, first of all, in such areas as Boleslawiec, Zagan, Torun, Swietoszow, and Skwierzyna. This equipment will be used in various maneuvers and training. This is a brigade fighting group. At this point, I want to emphasize the scale of the Dragon 17 exercises. This is 17,000 soldiers from 11 countries. I think that these figures are quite impressive if we are speaking about the activity of the NATO member countries, as well as the use of America’s potential,” he said.
