The Visegrad Core is expanding its influence across Europe: Support from the Northern League (Lega Nord) in Lombardy and Veneto.

* Italy. The Visegrad Core is expanding its influence across Europe. Visegrad seems to have support from the Northern League (Lega Nord) in Lombardy and Veneto.

** The League “subscribes” to the letter of the Visegrad rebels refused by Italy’s PM Paolo Gentiloni.

– The letter below in Italian was sent to us by Max Ferrari from his Lega Nord office in Milano. We did our best to translate the article, but it was very difficult and apologize for any errors contained in this translation.

The open letter by Paolo Grimoldi, secretary of the Lombard League, was sent to the four consuls of the Central European countries embroiled in controversy with the EU on immigration. July 24, 2017.

~ The article translated ~

“Now close your ports to the migrants or you will be submerged” is the main message of the letter written by the leaders of the Visegrad Group to PM Gentiloni. This advice from Visegrad, viewed from Rome as an act of intimidation, was merely a sincere offer from Hungary and Poland to help Italy in the creation and management of hot spots in southern Libya.

The Lega Nord has been working with the Hungarian premier Viktor Orbán, who in the European Parliament has been in agreement with Matteo Salvini. Salvini’s Lombard component, Mr Paolo Grimoldi, has long admired the bloc of Visegrad, even dreaming of being a part of it.

As secretary of the Lombard League, Paolo Grimoldi wrote an open letter from Milano to the four general consuls of the Visegrad group:

“For a long time,” writes Grimoldi, “as a representative of those Lombards who are proud of their European socio-cultural roots, I was extremely interested in the geopolitical experience of the “Visegrad Group” and I cannot help from thanking you openly for the letter that your leaders have written to the Italian premier.”

“A letter that I and the League fully consider to be friendly and full of good advice, starting with the closure of our ports, the generous offer to help create and manage collection points in Libya and patrolling the Libyan coastline. These are useful tips for a country that seems to be falling apart and many rightly fear is overwhelmed by an uncontrolled wave of migrants drawn to Europe by politicians and unscrupulous traffickers.”

“I do not understand and I am saddened by the rude and arrogant response of the Italian Government, which claims in a despicable way that your countries have something to learn. Instead, we should all learn about controlling migration from the Visegrad Group, which has brilliantly managed to close the Balkan migration route and secure its borders to impeccably maintain public order.”

“Prime Minister Orban said a nation which is unable to secure its own borders is not a nation and is likely to disappear. We of the League are perfectly in agreement and we share the concerns of Prime Ministers Beata Szydło, Robert Fico and Bohuslav Sobotka who are deeply concerned over Islamic mass migration and how it would change the demographic, cultural and religious features of our Christian Europe.”

“In the letter, it is written that most of those who land in Italy are not persecuted refugees, but economic migrants who must be rejected or, better yet, stopped earlier in the south of Libya. We agree. It is absurd to say that these ideas are racist – which is part of Emmanuel Macron’s agenda. It is even more ludicrous to try to silence the Hungarians with anti-Semitism allegations that have been personally dismantled by the Israeli prime minister. We have a lot to learn from Israel in the defense of our culture and I wanted to be in Budapest with you and Bibi Netanyahu to talk about safeguarding our common roots and our common culture.”

“Here in Milano – just like our friends in Austria (HC Strache and the FPO) – we take a great interest in the possible widening of the influence of the Visegrad Group, which today uses a policy of mutual support to block the arrogant policies of Brussels and counteract the hateful campaigns conducted by the EU, such as those directed at Poland and its sovereignty.”

“Orban said that years ago the CEE countries escaped from the Soviet bloc and looked to the EU as an anchor of salvation. Unfortunately, today the opposite has occurred and now it is the Central-Eastern European countries that are the last light of salvation for European identity. He is right: your bloc’s resistant to the anti-sovereign, globalist and pro-migration policies of the EU is the only chance of salvation for a Western Europe that is almost lost.”

“On the other hand, we do not forget that the heroic Polish cavalry, led by Jan Sobieski, at the head of a European “Lega Santa” (Holy League) – in which Lombardy and Venetians were also a part of – miraculously saved Vienna and Europe from the invasion of the Muslim.”

“As you well know, the Northern League led by Matteo Salvini is actively at your side in the European Parliament and we in Lombard are ready to do all that is necessary for the common cause in our regional parliament. In addition, we would like to create a “Lombardy-Visegrad Study Center” to ensure that trade and synergy are channeled and steady, and that your best practices and good ideas become increasingly familiar to us in Lombardy, demonstrating that the People’s Europe can still be saved.”

* Hungary 🇭🇺: Parliament expresses solidarity with Poland over Article7 procedure.

With 114 yes and 3 no votes, the Hungarian parliament passed the resolution to express its support for Poland in connection with a recent procedure against that country under Article 7 of the EU Treaty.

The EC started the procedure in 2017, saying that Polish reforms severely restricted the freedom of the judiciary and threatened the rule of law. Gaal said that similar laws to the contested ones had been implemented by other member states without similar scrutiny, and he insisted that Poland was being subjected to a political attack. “European values are not imperiled by Poland but by supporters of such procedures,” he said.

The real reason for the controversy is Poland’s reluctance to accept illegal migrants, Gaal insisted. The supporters of illegal migration in Brussels are trying to put pressure on those that oppose it, he said. “Hungarians and Poles have to stand up for the values of a Christian Europe … and stand by one another,” Gaal said.

According to the resolution, the European Commission’s launching the procedure over Poland’s judicial reform is “unacceptable” and “Article 7 must not be used for political witch-hunt”. The Hungarian parliament sees the procedure against Poland as a “dangerous precedent” when the Commission has stretched its authority as “guardian of agreements as outlined in the foundation deeds of the community”, the document said.

Poland’s ruling Law and Justice party (PiS) welcomed the resolution, saying that it guaranteed that the EU would not be able to impose sanctions on the country. “I am very pleased to hear about the Hungarian parliament’s resolution because it clearly indicates that any sanctions against Poland are out of the question,” PiS spokeswoman Beata Mazurek told Polish news agency PAP.

** There will be future battles in Europe, most notably the mandatory migrant quotas. Others in Central Europe must realize their real allies are in Hungary and Poland 🇵🇱, not in Brussels with Guy Verhofstadt’s ALDE Group. Without the vital leadership of Poland and Hungary, others in Central Europe will have little chance of resisting the future demands of Berlin and Paris.

Wonderful news!

Thank you Hungary for standing by Poland, and giving hope to the freedom-loving, conservative Christians of a truly democratic Europe. This is what "European values" are all about.

Thank you Hungary! ;)

* Italy 🇮🇹: As the election nears, Matteo Salvini has a plan....but does he have a reliable partner?

Mr Salvini – leader of Lega Nord – has vowed to deport 500,000 migrants within five years if his party wins the election – including 100,000 in the first year. Unlike others, Salvini realizes that Italy must do more to correct the mistakes of the past other than just complaining about the V4 and their refusal to accept the migrant quotas.

According to Express, if polling is accurate, the centre-right coalition which includes Lega Nord, as well as former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia party, is on course to win a majority in the March 4 election. We would welcome this outcome.

However, Silvio Berlusconi, even at 81-years of age, is a political opportunist that cannot be trusted. There are rumors that Berlusconi could broker a deal with Matteo Renzi and the Democrats, which would be a catastrophe that could leave Salvini out of the picture. All involved vehemently deny this rumor but anything is possible with Berlusconi and Renzi.

However, we are not sure Italians would tolerate the usual establishment games as Italy continues to struggle with hundreds of thousands of asylum seekers and migrants who have flooded the capital. There is a great tension in Italy regarding illegal migration.

The Guardian reports a former office block in the Via Curtatone area of the city became a focal point of the migrant crisis six months, when police evicted 800 Eritrea and Ethiopian migrants who had been living there for four years. Four years? What type of policy is this?

An estimated 100 buildings throughout Rome were similarly occupied by migrants but - with the upcoming elections -efforts to clear them have been stepped up. After the eviction, migrants slept in the nearby Piazza Indipendenza for five days until police cleared them out with water cannons.

Mayor Virginia Raggi, of the Five Star Movement, requested “a moratorium on new arrivals” in the capital, citing the “strong migratory presence and the continuous flow of foreign citizens”, and adding: “We can’t afford new arrivals.”

This is quite the understatement. Not only can’t Italy afford new arrivals, but they must develop a permanent and ongoing mechanism to deport the migrants back to their countries of origin. We give Salvini credit for grasping the reality of the situation and outlining a plan to achieve his goals.

The naysayers claiming it cannot be done are the same ones who claim the borders cannot be secured. Both can be done provided the will is greater from within than from the forces pushing on the outside. Australia, Hungary and US President Dwight Eisenhower, who deported over 1 million illegal immigrants, found success not by luck, but with a detailed plan backed by sheer determination.

Italy has great leverage over the leaders of Africa and they must start using it. This idea of not accepting back one’s citizens must not be tolerated. Why should Italy be held hostage by the leaders of Africa?

In addition, how many migrants would be discouraged from attempts to reach Italy if they saw others being sent back in large numbers and in timely fashion. Certainly, the current system of allowing migrants to roam for years, living off the Italian state or drug money, is not the answer and only acts as a magnet to attract more migrants.

Italy is at a crossroads and the current government has no answers. This crisis cannot be solved with migrant quotas or a “temporary show” of strength at the border. There must be a long-term commitment.

However, this election is also important for the security of all in Europe. If 600,000 migrants were granted entry over the last several years, they certainly are not all still in Italy. In many cases, it appears the migrants were “waived-through” and have moved on.

The V4 Report, as many of our readers know, was quite confident regarding the election in Austria last year and predicted it would be a “game-changer”. While we don’t have this same confidence with Italy, we are optimistic that Renzi, Gentiloni and their “open-entry” policies will be repudiated by Italians.

We just are not sure what Berlusconi is aiming for or what the new government of Italy will look like. Without Salvini and the League, the situation in Italy will continue to deteriorate and things may start to get very ugly. As Salvini said, “We want to prevent that.”
