V4 Report: EU-Turkey Deal on migrants obsolete, says EU Human rights chief.

** Balkan Route closing by Visegrad and others in Central European Defence Cooperation (CEDC), plus Macedonia, was the key to cutting migrant demand for Greece.

Nils Muiznieks, human rights commissioner at the Council of Europe, said migrants no longer cross into Greece from Turkey due to difficulties getting further – regardless of the EU migrant deal with Ankara.

The V4 Report has never found ourselves in agreement with Nils Muiznieks but, in this case, he seems to vindicate what we have said from the start.

It was the decision – criticized by Angela Merkel as “not my Europe” – of the Visegrad and various Central European nation states to seal the Balkan pipeline to Germany that discouraged the migrants from seeking Greece.

In our opinion, The Turkey Deal, which was implemented months after the Balkan closing, was overrated and designed for Merkel to try to take credit for the efforts of others. Meanwhile, Recep Erdogan raked in billions of dollars from the EU.

– Migrants have become aware of the difficulties and potential danger on the route from Turkey to northern Europe, and would no longer seek to make the trip, Muiznieks told reporters in Brussels on Thursday.

Turkey agreed to tighten controls along its coastline and to take back the migrants arriving irregularly in Greece (which has not occurred; please see our following post) in exchange for six billion euros to help accommodate the millions of refugees currently in Turkey and the promise of visa-free travel in Europe for Turkish citizens.

However, the changing conditions along the route since the agreement was signed (actually before it was signed as we have documented very clearly in our past posts) have put many migrants off making the trip, according to Muiznieks.

A number of the Central European nation states along the previous migrant routes have closed their borders, leaving thousands trapped in makeshift camps in Greece and Serbia. As a result, many others (but not all) have been deterred from seeking Greece.

The next task must be to develop a permanent mechanism to deport the “trapped” migrants back to Turkey or their countries of origin. There are no excuses.

*** Many Eurocrats may despise Viktor Orban but he has a tremendous focus, determination and ability to get things done. Visegrad, Austria and other European nation states in the CEDC did not wait for orders from Brussels; they took care of things themselves and continue to be the most effective defenders of Europe.

The core foundation of Europe are the nation states, not the socialist bureaucrats of Brussels.

V4 Report

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
