Sebastian Kurz – Europe’s Christian Chancellor

Sebastian Kurz – Europe’s Christian Chancellor

* Austria: Sebastian Kurz – Europe’s Christian Chancellor: “Christians should comport themselves with confidence.”

– If the title is correct, we expect that Frans Timmermans, the EU Minister of “values”, will be visiting Austria soon. Brussels does not like this type of thought.

– Some have questioned Kurz’s sincerity, but we have confidence in him, especially in partnership with the Freedom Party. He may be young, but he is confident and seems willing to stand by his convictions.

** The V4 Report certainly does not subscribe to the entire article, especially the obnoxious attacks on Kurz – who is Catholic – emanating from Germany, which may be realizing they are losing influence in Central Europe.

We are also amazed at the arrogance of some who question whether his policies on migration are at odds with “Christianity”. This is a ridiculous debate. The liberals raising this issue are likely to be promoting the agenda of the “Open Society”, the EU and the UN – which are not exactly bastions of Christianity. In fact, they are quite hostile to the Faith.

The debate is not about whether or not to support the refugees as some of the self-appointed “Gods of Humanity” have framed it. The arguments revolve around the best way to help the true refugees without sacrificing the security of Europeans.

The UN/EU/NGO society believes in open-borders and endless relocation with little regard for the safety of Europeans. Many others – including the V4 Report – view the policy of “relocation” as a proven disaster for all, including the true refugees.

Instead, we favor Visegrad’s approach: Securing the border first and assisting the refugees in their own countries (or close to it). Three recent posts demonstrated how Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic were greatly assisting refugees in their own countries. We feel this is the most humane and efficient way to support the refugees while putting the safety of Europeans first.

The Open Society socialists in Brussels may not agree with our solutions, but they certainly will not define the “Christian approach” to migration for us.

*** However noxious the first few paragraphs, there are a few vital points worth mentioning from the article:

1. Eighty per cent of the electorate went to the polls on October 15 in a country that, as of 2016, was 60 per cent Catholic (a further 10 per cent were either Orthodox or Protestant Christians).

The results suggest that a large number of Christians not only voted for Kurz, but also for the more right-wing FPÖ. As Stephan Baier, the veteran Vienna correspondent of the Catholic German newspaper Die Tagespost points out, voter turnout would suggest that many Christians are, in fact, pleased with Kurz’s ascent.

2. Kurz attended the “March for Jesus” in Vienna in 2016, instead of a much more popular gay pride march on the same day. He holds a strongly pro-life position, one he clarified in an interview with the site Glaube.at shortly before the election – at a time when some savvy strategists might have suggested he remain silent.

3. Kurz believes that there is no contradiction between his Catholic faith and his stringent approach to tackling mass migration, which was crucial to his election victory and his remarkable rise in popularity beforehand. As foreign minister, in the spring of 2016, he worked with Viktor Orban and the Central European Defence Cooperation (CEDC) group to help close the “Balkan route” by which hundreds of thousands of migrants had illegally crossed into Austria.

4. Kurz has said: “What has shaped Europe, what has shaped Austria? We have a culture shaped by our Judaeo-Christian heritage and the Enlightenment – and this culture needs protecting, especially at a time of high and rising immigration.”

Sebastian Kurz seems well-grounded and sincere in his beliefs. While he is not calling for Austria’s exit, Kurz desires a slimmed-down EU that focuses on border security and trade. He wants less mandates from Brussels and more power transferred back to the European nation states.

Perhaps this is why Kurz and the Freedom Party are being attacked by Germany and their mercenaries in the liberal media.

* 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! ;)

V4 Report

* 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.”
