V4 Report: Angela Merkel is furious with the Three Seas Initiative. We would ask why?

V4 Report: Angela Merkel is furious with the Three Seas Initiative, especially the efforts of Croatia and Poland. We would ask why?

– The German government, full of delusions of grandeur and obsessed with control, believes there is “something more sinister” behind the announced economic projects of the Three Seas Initiative. Merkel’s definition of “sinister” may be someone else’s definition of freedom.

– Merkel and her Court in Berlin believe the Initiative is an attempt to “divide Europe” and “weaken the influence” of Germany on its neighbors. We have a feeling they are more concerned about the latter. It is interesting to hear Merkel accuse others of “dividing Europe” when her reckless migration policies seem to have done a good job at that already. Vanity often blinds one to reality.

– The V4 Report strongly believes it is extremely vital for the V4 and CEE nation states to build “some form” of a regional coalition to work together to prevent any meddling power from dominating the region again, either by political or economic means. This means Russia from the East, Germany (or Brussels) from the West and an increasingly belligerent Turkey from the South. Some forget about the very volatile and erratic Erdogan.

– This does not entail isolation or hostility, but a desire to control one’s own destiny and to engage with others on an equal basis, and not as “subjects”. The V4 and CEE nation states have a great potential to bring positive change to Europe. Yes, they must cooperate freely with others when merited, but they will also defend their interests when challenged by others – as many did with Brussels regarding the migrant quotas. There is nothing sinister or radical about this Initiative; in fact, it is quite natural and wise to seek self-sufficiency.

– This will not be easy, nor will it happen overnight, but it is a valuable first step towards countering the heavy influence of the German-French coalition in Western Europe. Quite frankly, we are alarmed over Germany’s attitude of viewing the Three Seas Initiative as a challenge to their “influence over their neighbors”. What exactly does this mean? Yes, Germany is an economic machine that cannot be ignored, but their export-dependent economy must keep all avenues of trade open. However, they also need to respect the sovereignty and independence of other nation states. After all, it is not the citizens of Poland or Croatia providing Merkel with election success. They have their own visions. Europe is much more than Angela Merkel and she is not “indispensable”.

We are not sure who decided to crown Germany as the sovereign of Europe? Why is it acceptable for Merkel to proclaim a partnership with France to push their agenda, while she attempts to prevent others from taking action to strengthen their leverage?

The V4 Report will follow this post with a fine summary explanation of the Three Seas Initiative from the editors of the Visegrad Post.

In the meantime, beware of those false prophets in the media and halls of Berlin and Brussels who seek to slander the efforts of the V4 and CEE nation states to increase their regional clout. Many of these same critics are often trying to protect their own interests.

As the state of New Hampshire says, “Live Free or Die”. Onward V4! Stay strong and united.

* True European Solidarity at the border: Czech Republic 🇨🇿 sent 1,275 police officers abroad since 2015 to help secure Europe from illegal migration. What has Luxembourg done?

** All four of the Visegrad nations are helping other nation states in Europe with border security.

Most Czech police served missions in Macedonia, Hungary, Serbia, Slovenia and even Greece. Others assisted with the EU Frontex Agency in Italy, Spain and Portugal.

There are still problems with the migrants along the Greek-Macedonian border, where Czech police officers participated in the detention of 314 migrants. The leaders of Greece are creating a backlog and are not deporting “all irregulars” back to Turkey as required under the deal with the EU. This needs to change.

In the host countries, Czech police officers usually help local police protect the border, supervise the observance of the public order, and make security and road checks.

The Czechs are also one of the most generous countries in providing border aid to Libya to help prevent the illegal migrants from traveling to Europe.

* 🇱🇺 Luxembourg’s socialist foreign affairs minister Jean Asselborn wants to start Article7 procedures against Hungary 🇭🇺. Yesterday, he shamelessly likened prime minister Viktor Orbán to a dictator.

Asselborn is well-known for his attacks on Orban but so are others. Orban listed the EU politicians who attacked Hungary in the past but later failed: Faymann, Kern, Milanovic and Matteo Renzi. Perhaps the best example was Martin Schulz whose “anti-Orban” campaign in Germany failed miserably. Orban said, “Schulz wanted to be everything, but became nothing".

Are Western European leaders becoming unglued over the recent success and independence of Visegrad?

** Asselborn, a member of the Socialist Workers’ Party, once served under the government of Jean-Claude Juncker. Asselborn is pictured below with the “High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy” Federica Mogherini, who was once a member of the Italian Communist Youth Federation, upon joining in 1988.

*** The V4 Report warned of more of these bitter political attacks on the nation states after the EU launched Article7 procedures against Poland a few months ago. “Who will be the next target of the EU Inquisition?” we asked. Apparently, it is Hungary. Someone else will be next.

Asselborn said that Orban’s statements should lead to the triggering of Article 7, adding that “the EU must stand up and revolt”.

Watch out, the warriors of Luxembourg have called on Western Europe to “stand up and revolt”. Somehow, we cannot take Asselborn, PM Xavier Bettel and the passive leaders of Luxembourg seriously. What is Luxembourg doing to combat illegal migration? Are they exhibiting “solidarity” by sending police to help secure the Balkan route or do they just enjoy solidarity when it involves fancy dinner parties in Brussels?

What did Orban say to earn the scorn of Asselborn?

“We are those who think that Europe’s last hope is Christianity … If hundreds of millions of young people are allowed to move north, there will be enormous pressure on Europe. If all this continues, in the big cities of Europe there will be a Muslim majority.”

Orbán also accused the High Commissioner for Human Rights of the Council of Europe as being the “main ideologues of the Soros Network”. He has a point. Prior to his appointment as Commissioner for Human Rights, Nils Muižnieks was the Programme Director at the Soros Foundation-Latvia.

On the UN, Orban stated:

“What does the United Nations want to do? The United Nations wants to accept that immigration and its promotion contribute positively to economic growth and prosperity. From Europe, this is obviously nonsense, as if someone said that the flu pandemic is a good thing because it contributes favorably to people's health and well-being. According to the UN, safe and regulated immigration routes need to be established in Europe, according to the United Nations, all Europeans have a duty to help immigrants arrive in their settlements and work. We understand that 80 percent of the UN member states are more migrant countries, but we have not created the United Nations to turn to us and force us to ruin us.”

This is not the first time Hungary has been slandered by Asselborn, who once said Hungary “should be temporarily suspended, or if necessary, permanently expelled from the EU.”

In an interview with German newspaper Die Welt, Asselborn expressed his anger at the Hungarian government’s policy on migrants, saying “the fence that Hungary is building along to keep out refugees is getting longer, higher and becoming more dangerous. Hungary is not far from giving orders to shoot refugees. Anyone who wants to surmount the fence has to reckon with the worst.”

“Shooting the refugees”? No. Protecting Hungarians from unknown, aggressive male migrants? Yes.

**** Luxembourg may be irrelevant, but this is a preview of the strategy to be utilized by the leaders of Western Europe in their battle with Visegrad and the CEE states over migration. The EU does not like independent thought and is prepared to vilify and smear both Poland and Hungary in an attempt to divide Visegrad by isolating their strongest leaders.

Things are starting to get ugly and divisive inside the EU. We expect more of the same as the migration manifesto demanded by Berlin and Brussels continues to divide Europe.

Don't u report other things apart from Hungary and Poland issues 😴

Nasty people. Not fit for purpose the EU.

Who are these puppets? ... oh, just the usual fart-filled soap bubbles.

Oh boy... socialists are on it again... Poland and Hungary seem like nemesis for European Union

Az EU vezetősége kizárólag leszerepelt volt európai miniszterek, akik egymást illegálisan kinevezték a főpiziciókba, és ami szorosan összeköti öket a Soros szolgálat. Úgy látszik, Soros jól megfizeti szolgálataikat! Európai árulói ezek, amiért egyszer súlyos árat fognak fizetni.

Incroyable ingerence in the Hungarian elections!

He cant do nothing to Hungary. Cheer up, Friends, he's only dumb socialist ;-)

Asselborn is a Communist and he wants to to reactivate an EUSSR. Stop communists!

The ass born and the Islam loving slut concubine of Mohammed. A European revolt is long overdue. www.infowars.com/eu-security-head-political-islam-is-the-future-of-europe/

These people who "represent" the public should have tranparent bank accounts.. Their families also

Asselborn is just a simple European mf, his time will come soon too   He has never been chosen by anyone as a our boss! We are on the brink of a devastating European war and these assholes still “getting drunk”!

* Czech Republic 🇨🇿: Visegrad nation protecting Europe by combating illegal migration. 35 illegal migrants found in lorries detained by police, spokeswoman Veronika Hokrova told journalists on Saturday.

The detained lorry drivers are suspected to be internal people traffickers, Hokrova said. This, along with so-called human rights activists who assist in the crime of illegal migration, has become a major problem in Europe. The authorities must severely punish those who assist with illegal migration and must target internal traffickers just as much as external smugglers. Someone is aiding the migrants once they enter Europe.

"The detained persons were driven by special buses to the immigration police station for further measures," Hokrova said.

"At present, we are finding out within the EU whether the people are registered as asylum seekers in a different EU country," she added.

"It should be found out whether they can be returned to the country in which the foreigners asked for asylum within the Dublin system and its directives," Hokrova said.

"There is also the option of proceeding consistently with the readmission agreement with Slovakia because the lorries came to the Czech Republic from it," she added.

The police officers arrested the drivers and their fellow passengers aged 26 to 37. The police started criminal proceedings with them.

In 2017, the immigration police detained 172 transit migrants, while there were 511 of them in 2016. At the peak of the border crisis in 2015, the Czechs detained 2,294 illegal migrants.

** The Czechs are correct to detain the migrants, rather than letting them roam Europe. In 2015, the UN and Pussy Riot punk band traveled to the Czech Republic to protest this procedure. Ex-Interior Minister Milan Chovanec basically told them to mind their own business. As we have seen, migrant roaming has been a recipe for disaster in Western Europe.

This is another reason why we strongly oppose the attempts from the UN to establish a global migration manifesto.
