European Parliament implementing ‘Soros plan’, says Orbán in Brussels

European Parliament implementing ‘Soros plan’, says Orbán in Brussels

The European Parliament has started implementing the “Soros plan”, as the EP’s commission on civil liberties, citizenship and home affairs (LIBE) has adopted a report on amending the Dublin Rule, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said on Friday.

Speaking after a summit meeting of European heads of state and government in Brussels, Orbán said that

“no less is in the barrel than a bullet, which would introduce a permanent (migrant) distribution mechanism with no upper limit, which translates as a mandatory resettlement quota.”

LIBE’s report “neglects the hazards of there being a connection between migration and terrorism,” Orbán said, adding that the amendment would also restrict the powers of member states.

“So far, it has been our competency to determine who can stay in Hungary, but the European Parliament has launched an attack stronger than ever before against our sovereignty,” Orbán insisted. He added that “national unity would come in handy” in a situation like this, but Hungary’s opposition parties “support Brussels’ immigration policy based on the mandatory quota“.

Orbán pledged, however, that “as long as Hungary has this government and I am at the head of it, there will be no resettlement or migrant quota of any kind in the country.” He added that he expected “hard and lengthy” debates on the matter.

Despite “worrying differences on certain issues” between the Visegrad 4 group and the European Commission, the working dinner of the V4 leaders and EC President Jean-Claude Juncker on Wednesday night was successful, Orbán said. There is a good chance to improve cooperation, he said.

The differences in the parties’ views on Europe’s future and migration are rooted in cultural rather than political discrepancies, he said.

“The meeting was nevertheless successful”, Orbán said.

“We have cleared up a number of misunderstandings, and managed to tell Mr Juncker that we wanted more respect for central European people, Hungarians among them”.

On another subject, Orbán urged that talks with Montenegro and Serbia on their EU integration should be accelerated, and argued that accession of those countries would “stabilise the EU in the Balkans”.

    Soros directed refugee 10% terrorist and 27% lazy bully welfare people. West doing nothing in Syria. No red cross nothing. Green and liberals don’t understand anything.

    Prime Minister Viktor Orban once again shows, and stands ‘tall’, with the clarity of his European vision in resisting the bureaucratic attempt of the EP President Jean-Claude Juncker to relieve him of his national Hungarian sovereignty and respect, so dearly earned !!
    A strengthened Visegrad 4 Group can be a powerfull force to modify the current erring path of Brussels and company !!
    Viktor Orban may not be tall in Cms, but he is a ‘giant’ in his vision and approach for the European path ! Few compare !

    The EU is a steering ship loaded with explosives and a ruthless crew.
    Once again, the government leaders of the EU Member States gathered to negotiate common projects and objectives. But the crucial questions were only pushed forward each time. There is no clear line to discover. The EU Member States have again announced a cautious result, with great reservations for their meeting, when it comes to the global fire that is raging. It’s a bit like they only watch their internal and international organization from the outside through a thick clad diamond, unclear and watery. Perhaps this is the only way to align 28 or 27 repercussions, depending on the role that Britain still plays. However, it is likely that there will slowly and surely be a growing awareness that this strategy will only weaken the EU administration.
    A look back reveals the mistakes. Since the early ‘90s, EU Member States have had time to prepare themselves for a turbulent world. This boat was missed. A reason for the French President Emmanuel Macron to call for a new start. However, it seems that the EU itself slows down any dynamics. Internally, in particular, the Brexit negotiations with Britain must panic EU countries and Brussels, as they are all interested in a soft exit. But the time for the negotiators hits. In any case, Mufti Merkel has spread an unusual optimism in the current negotiations, which is now completely late. She said about a possible agreement that should prevent a hard brexit from coming: ‘I do not doubt that we all agree’, but she considers it unclear. Whether this ‘unanimity’ would help to reform the reform agenda that President Donald Duck Tusk wants to run until 2019 remains a mystery. It is a matter of controversial interests that each Member State tries to maintain. There is no common line in the European integration community that makes it possible to act together. Instead, the different groups have different interests and try to push them through.
    The proposal for a 2-speed EU is the opposite of leadership. But precisely, the latter urged the EU to survive. The Member States that want to promote cooperation do so on their own initiative and without taking into account the other states. If you try to lead, like Germany and France, it is not necessary always to reach a consensus but try to convince the other smaller Member States with your idea. That does not happen. The EU leaders are particularly worried about external migration, drawing attention to the successes of controlling the closure of borders while being as leaky as the well-known basket. They boast of continued support for Italy and cooperation with Libya. The fleet agreement with Turkey is also praised, but the mechanism for the exchange of refugees does not work as expected. But the limit will be closed for the time being. The intention is to further reduce immigration via the Mediterranean Sea in 2018. To this end the ‘causes of the flight’ must be combated, for which the EU has already collected € 175 million for projects on the African continent. But the decades of years of development aid shows that the calf has long been drowned in the well.
    Money is also at stake in the light of developments in Turkey. It was clear that accession negotiations are not completed because some countries, such as Bulgaria, they would not agree. It is equally clear that something has to be changed with Turkey’s relationship as Mufti Merkel has already announced. Therefore, the EU has now proposed to reduce accession aid to Turkey, but this was not yet approved by the last communiqué last week. Between 2007 and 2013, Turkey received € 4.8 billion from Brussels. (From EU taxpayers!) This is more than 27 times the amount intended to ‘fight’ the reasons for the flight in Africa. And after 2013, the project was continued: by 2020, an additional € 4.5 billion will be transferred to Sultan Erdogan. For accession to democracy and the rule of law, 2 words that can hardly be mentioned in the context of Turkey. The rule of law currently does not exist there. Since 2007, the situation has deteriorated and nothing is happening.
    The last week’s summit began with the appearance of the future Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz. It is expected that he will use the European scene to compete with the French president Macron in order to agree with him on a number of issues in the field of migration policy, the European budget and a finance minister of the EU. So, it remains a matter of waiting but there is no logical explanation apart from incompetence that would explain why in recent years such big mistakes have been made that make the EU a steerless ship full of explosives.
