V4 Report: Slovakia: Ján Kuciak, Slovak Journalist “Murdered For His Work”. Murder of investigative reporter and possible Italian mafia involvement in fraud linked to European Union subsidies in Slovakia.

“What Russians and Italians have been doing… particularly connected with European funds has been under-reported, and Jan had his teeth into one of those stories,” said Bratislava-based investigative journalist, Tom Nicholson.

– EU funds? No doubt, the vast amounts of cash being doled out by Brussels is ripe for corruption and abuse….and acts as a magnet to attract the “dark side” of the criminal underworld.

However, the mafia’s involvement is not isolated to Slovakia alone. It is everywhere. One only has to look at the fraud and corruption tied to the “refugee industry” in Italy, where EU funds are flowing like water. Even the Nigerian mafia is said to be operating there.

** Kuciak’s last story for Aktuality, on Feb. 9, looked at transactions by firms linked to businessman Marian Kocner and connected to a Bratislava luxury apartment complex that became the center of a political scandal last year.

Jan Kuciak, 27, and his partner Martina Kusnirova were found shot dead in their house in Velka Maca, east of Bratislava, on Sunday evening.

The news that the journalist was most likely murdered for exposing corruption in high office has raised concern for democracy and freedom of the press.

– This is a first (as far as we know) in Slovakia but it follows other alarming trends, such as in Malta in October. A car bomb killed Daphne Caruana Galizia, who had accused people close to the prime minister of corruption. The most visible attack on journalists occurred in January of 2015 when gunmen shot dead 12 people at the Paris office of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in a militant Islamist attack.

Whether motivated by money, politics, greed, religion or any other reason, this type of deranged behavior must not be tolerated. Open debate is a must for a free society and no government entity, individual or organization should be allowed to intimidate others into silence. Nor should government officials attempt to suppress free speech by creating filters and roadblocks designed to shield them from criticism.

“If it is proven that the death of the investigative reporter was connected with his journalistic work, it would be an unprecedented attack on freedom of speech and democracy in Slovakia,” Prime Minister Robert Fico said.

While not passing judgement until the investigation is finished and the facts are in, we have a feeling this may be the beginning of the end for the current government of Robert Fico in Slovakia.

In addition, we would strongly caution against using EU monies to reward states for accepting migrants. One can only imagine the fraud and abuse that would occur with this adventure.

Radical EU federalists (Verhofstadt at the ALDE Group) and Green Marxists are now attacking Hungary 🇭🇺 and its people over their free decision to elect Viktor Orban.

Slovakia’s 🇸🇰 new PM stands up to defend Hungary and Visegrad. He is new but off to a strong start.

It’s time for Andrej Babis of the Czech Republic 🇨🇿 to repudiate Guy Verhofstadt and the multicult extremists at ALDE by terminating his association with this extremist group, which has very little in common with the beliefs of the Czech people.* Slovakia 🇸🇰: “Respect the results''. New Slovakian PM Peter Pellegrini defends Visegrad and blasts EU extremists, who are calling for sanctions on Hungary 🇭🇺 after Viktor Orbán’s convincing victory.

** The EU Parliament has turned into a kindergarten playground, full of juvenile brats screaming for attention. They neither respect the Hungarian people, nor do they speak for the mainstream of Europe. Does one need any more evidence of the Open Society’s influence over Brussels?

- Peter Pellegrini called out the European Union after it was suggested the bloc impose voting sanctions on Hungary following the victory of eurosceptic Viktor Orbàn.

Mr Pellegrini told Bloomberg: "I think Hungary is our neighbouring country and I have to say we should not comment on what is going on there because we speak a lot in Brussels about the rule of law.”

"We need to respect democracy and everything. In Hungary there were democratic elections and it is the decision of the Hungarian people and we have to respect the results."

- Last week a draft report from the European Parliament suggested the institution could seek to impose sanctions on Hungary due to "systematic threats to democracy, the rule of law and fundamental rights."

Judith Sargentini, the MEP charged with the report, said: "It is shocking how many warning have been given since 2010. The time for issuing warnings has passed. We need to stand up for the Hungarian people whose rights have been undermined by their government."

Miss Sargentini is a Dutch politician and member of the radical, far-left GreenParty of the EU Parliament. The Hungarian people are not looking for Green Party extremists like her to “stand up for them”. In fact, Hungarians elected Viktor Orban to defend their country from Cultural Marxists such as Sargentini, who not only fail to grasp reality but also suffer from delusions of grandeur.

The liberal media and EU Parliament are embarrassing themselves and pushing Central Europeans into a corner. Whining and crying about elections that do not produce the results one wishes for is one thing, but trying to punish a people and nation for electing the leaders they wish to represent them is small, unbecoming and reprehensible.

This is no longer something to be “brushed-off” as a disagreement. With this threat and the obnoxious tactics designed to intimidate independent nation states for not voting as the EU pleases, Brussels is declaring war on Hungary and Visegrad. Others in Central Europe cannot remain silent; they will be next.

Pellegrini may not be perfect, but, in our opinion, he is off to a strong start. He realizes the long-term consequences of this poison emanating from Brussels. We applaud his actions to defend his fellow Visegrad neighbor.

- At some point, Visegrad and others in CEE must realize that their culture and values are totally at odds with the ultra-left beliefs of Brussels, Berlin and the leaders of the Western EU bloc. While countries are free to disagree, it crosses the line when one party seeks to impose their beliefs on another party which rejects them.

A “Project” relegated to using force, blackmail and threats to desperately hold a union together will collapse. The future is not the EU, it is too big and its members are too divided. EU solidarity is dead and it’s time to move on.

The future will consist of smaller, less intrusive regional alliances that better reflect the beliefs, traditions and values of its people. It is no longer a question of if......but when.

Following the elections in Austria, Hungary and Italy, the EU has revealed its true colors: The Society of Brussels is not interested in solidarity; rather, they seek submission and domination.

The Battle for the Soul of Europe rages on.....right here and right now. Onward Visegrad! It’s time to take off the gloves.

holland állami rádió fiatal műsorvezetője javasolja, hogy a holland képviselő köpje le Orbán Viktort Úgy gondolom:hiába ahol a kannabusz legálisan használható irracionális szöveget is mondhat valaki és azt gondolja Ő az Európai Persze amikor az ősei még holland gyarmatosítok voltak a talpával rugdoshatta a gyarmatain lakókat- miközben a javaikat elszedve az anyaországot gazdagították Igy aztán a tudatban megmaradt bármely pártot is képvisel valaki Nekik (és igy persze az egész uniónak dolga és kötelessége a volt gyarmatokról a befogadás ) eszükbe sem jut, hogy áldozni kellene pénzt és tudást és helyben ott segíteni az emberi élet jobbításáért . Összefoglalva sem Ön tisztelt Ur sem a megszólított holland képviselő asszony nem tekinthető igazán európainak és demokratának sem- jobban hasonlít ez a vélemény és ez a gyakorlat a régi gyarmattartóira- csak most ide mint alattvalók közé besorolnák a közép-europaiakat is A szégyen az Öné
