While there are many reasons to reject the UN Migration Pact, Austria’s Sebastian Kurz offered another vital but often overlooked point…. future court judgments.
This is extremely relevant and we hope this starts a much needed debate regarding the overreach of so-called international law and the viability of outdated treaties regarding migration.
* In the case of the UN Pact, Kurz correctly pointed out that “there is a danger that the goals of the pact will be incorporated in future court judgments, thus limiting our sovereign migration policy.”
All too often, the European Courts are legislating from the bench and handcuffing nation states from doing what is necessary to defend their borders and people.
This is one of the ways that the international NGOs, the UN and Brussels believe they can thwart the desires of Europeans and their national governments to defend the borders and to deport the migrants outside of Europe. Some are targeting Matteo Salvini of Italy.
All the misleading talk of this Compact not being “binding” or a threat to national sovereignty is the same propaganda one has heard from these international institutions for decades. Once they suck you in, it is hard to break free.
Take a look at the migrants violently storming the borders of Spain and attacking the border guards. Today, this is tolerated due to an EU law that prevents Spain from simply “pushing” the migrants back across the border.
In past times, this type of invasion would have not been tolerated and border guards would have been able to properly defend themselves, their country and their people.
While many leaders still follow the crowd like sheep, some are starting to realize that these international initiatives eventually morph into chains that enslave independent nations.
** On another theme, while we expected Austria’s “Green” President to criticize Kurz over his decision, one must also not overlook the negative influence of Othmar Karas, a member of EPP Party and head of ÖVP delegation in Austria.
Karas is a bitter enemy of Viktor Orban, Visegrad and the Freedom Party of Austria. Karas, while voting to sanction Hungary, claimed, “Our Europe is that of Juncker, not that of Orbán.”
The EU enthusiast is pressuring Kurz to ratify the UN Compact in his usual haughty attitude regarding Austria’s international reputation: “We should not put this reputation lightly on the line,” said Karas, who is viewed as the voice of Austria in Brussels. (Karas is married to Dr. Christa Waldheim-Karas, daughter of Kurt Waldheim and Elisabeth Waldheim.)
The V4 Report believes that Karas would like for Kurz to abandon the FPO in order to embrace Berlin and Brussels. Moreover, he is another pro-Merkel member of the EPP in Brussels – which is why we believe Viktor Orban should exit the EPP to form a new alliance with Salvini and others.
We question whether the EPP Party of Merkel, Juncker, Tusk, Plenkovic, Weber and Karas is the right mechanism for Orban to achieve his noble objectives.
