Czech Republic Election: The good, the bad and the ugly.

Czech Republic Election: The good, the bad and the ugly.

* Czech Republic Election: The good, the bad and the ugly.

– The Czechs clearly sent a negative message to the major parties (CSSD, Top09) promoting Brussels and the EU Core, but the ANO Party cannot be trusted. The political situation is complex and in complete chaos.

** We will be frank. Unlike Austria, the V4 Report was not optimistic or comfortable regarding the Czech elections. Given the lack of quality and integrity among the front runner (ANO) and the establishment parties, we could not confidently support any of the above. The political situation continues to be a chaos and is very difficult to grasp.

However, one thing is still certain for us. As we said in our previous post on October 10, “As the political establishment in the Czech Republic continues to implode, the Czech people represent the best defense against the multicult agenda being pushed by Berlin, Paris and the EU Core.”

“The Czech people are extremely skeptical of the EU and strong opponents of Angela Merkel’s migration agenda. They will not tolerate leaders who would embrace EU Solidarity on migration or multiculturalism. Andrej Babis would be advised not to cross that line.”

~~ For our readers who reside outside of the Czech Republic, please refer to the brief description of the numerous parties at the bottom of this post. Radomír Pleskač, a member of our audience, provided an excellent description. Thank you and great job Radomír. ~~

Other than ANO winning, we had no idea how this election would end. We do not view the election results as pro-ANO; rather, we believe it was a revolt against the establishment and a rejection of the parties promoting the EU Core Group of France and Germany. We will not touch on every detail, but feel we need to repeat our deep concerns regarding the ANO Party, while identifying the biggest losers and winners of the election.

1. We have many reservations regarding ANO. Andrej Babis won easily and he campaigned against the establishment and Angela Merkel’s migration agenda. Despite his recent anti-migrant rhetoric, many Czechs seem to distrust Babis. According to the CVVM Institute, Babis was trusted by 59% of Czechs in 2015. Today, that figure has fallen to 37%. Many Czechs believe he is an opportunist and would do or say almost anything to become the next PM.

The V4 Report has major concerns with the ANO Party, especially EU Minister Vera Jourova, who has unjustly attacked both Hungary and Poland while claiming “open society values are at the heart of EU action.” We are also very uncomfortable with ANO’s close ties to EU radical Guy Verhofstadt and his ALDE group in Brussels. We will be following the interactions between Babis and these two very closely.

In addition, Andrej Babis has been formally charged with fraud in a case involving a 2 million euro “EU subsidy”. We do not believe it is healthy for a nation to have its leader being investigated by an outside power, such as the EU, which can have influence over the internal policies of the Czech Republic. For instance, would the EU “negotiate” with Babis behind closed doors in exchange for his pledge to accept migrant quotas from Greece and Italy? It would be alarming for the Czech Republic or any other European nation state to find themselves in a situation where the EU has leverage over their leaders.

Babis may later find himself removed from office due to his legal issues. Who would then assume his post? Another member of ANO or would new elections be called? The thought of EU Minister Vera Jourova (ANO) taking over as leader of the Czech Republic is nauseating and totally misaligned with the character and beliefs of the Czech voter.

2. The biggest loser was the CSSD. The Social Democrats, like most leftist parties across Europe, were absolutely crushed. They suffered heavy losses and were viewed as pro-Berlin and pro-EU. The outgoing PM, Bohuslav Sobotka, may have damaged his party even further when he proclaimed support for the euro and deeper integration within the EU Core last week. Sobotka could be looking for a cushy job in Brussels.

3. Another big loser was the Top09. The strongest pro-migration/EU Party barely reached the 5% electoral threshold and suffered major losses as well. Top09 is best symbolized by the old establishment of Karel Schwarzenberg and Miroslav Kalousek, who is by far the least-trusted Czech politician.

Both Schwarzenberg and Kalousek are fierce opponents of Viktor Orban and the leaders of Poland. Part of their platform centered around moving the Czechs away from the V4 to embrace “EU Solidarity”, which did not work out too well for Sweden.

Prince Schwarzenberg (yes, he is a real Prince) believes the Czech Republic should accept many more migrants, claiming “We could certainly integrate them much more than we think. When Germany can handle 800,000, we can have 80,000. I assure you it would not be a problem.” Obviously, the Czechs thought otherwise.

4. The Winners. The Pirate Party and SPD are new and surprised many with their showing. The success of the SPD, the strongest anti-migrant group, did not surprise us. The Czechs are ardent opponents of the EU’s relocation agenda and, according to Yahoo, migration was a key issue in the election.

While the Czechs were sending the establishment a message, another new Party (Pirates) benefited. However, we are not impressed with their message or leader, who is extremely liberal and quite a radical activist. While a distraction, they offer no valuable qualities. We believe they are a short-term “fad” with the same brief life expectancy of the former VV Party.

5. ODS (second at 11.31%) may be the biggest winner. Under Klaus “the elder”, the centre-right Party was a major influence until they suffered major scandals from two of their past PMs. They may be making a comeback. They are against the migrant quotas and “moderately skeptical” of Brussels. We believe they offer much more credibility and substance than the ANO Party. We will judge them by their actions but they could be the party to watch.

The voting is over and the results are final. However, the situation is not pretty and no one can be sure what comes next. As we wrote on October 10th, “The main suspense will be the final positioning of the various parties trailing Babis and the complex coalition building that will occur after the votes are counted. This will be very interesting and will no doubt create much drama and controversy in the Czech Republic for the next several months.”

Good luck!

~~ Election Guide ~~

A summary of Czech political parties graciously provided to us by Radomír Pleskač:

ANO – centrist, without hard principles and stances. Recently they started talking little bit eurosceptism…. however I find it hard to believe them, because the Leader is the biggest reciever of EU subsidies in the country …. He is also a former informer for the communist police. And they dealt some hard strikes to small bussinesses in the last government.

ODS – right wing, since the last election cycle they reformed and lot, and are strong in their convictions. They have lot of good people (for example Vaclav Klaus ml., who is a son of the ex president). Mostly eurosceptic, some would favor referendum for leaving.

SPD – anti-immigrant party, heavily eurosceptic, for the rest of their positions they are mostly conservative-left and centrist. New party.

Pirati – Pirate party, centre-left (liberal-left). Pro-eu. Heavy focus on digitizing the state aparatus. However some people in there are cause for concern, for example the leader attends antifa rallies …..

KSCM – communist party. conservative-left. heavily eurosceptic. anti-nato. Some people are okay on some issues (for example for private gun ownership)

CSSD – Social democrats. They are split between conservative and liberal-left. Split on EU.They mostly support it although with reservations (for example it was them who in the last government refused to accept any migrants.)

KDU-CSL – christian democrats. Centrist with conservative flavor (focus on family values). Mostly pro-eu

STAN – Independents – centrist with little lean on the right. They are mostly pro-eu.

TOP09 – Although they call-themselves as a part of right I would clasify tham as centre-left. (Vaclav Klaus called them “Social democrats for the wealthy”). Liberal left. Heavily pro EU.

* 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.

Shoot first. Ask questions later. 😡😡😡

thank you, fellow slavs for your sacrifice. our country ( mainly due to politics) succumbed to migrants... only good thing is that we're too poor for their life style :p.

There were 50 of them. 28 in one truck and the rest in the other one.
