Hungarian Prime Minister Challenges European Union in Fiery Address

In a powerful speech before the European Parliament Wednesday, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán urged leaders of the EU to respect Hungary’s sovereignty and to examine its need for serious structural reform.

“You may know that we Hungarians never give up the fight,” Orbán said defiantly, “and I will today once again try to apply the power of common sense in this debate.”

Orbán was referring to specific EU complaints about Hungary’s unilateral opposition to the heavy-handed pressures of American financial speculator George Soros, a major financer of abortion and open immigration throughout the world. Yet in his address, the Prime Minister went further, asserting Hungary’s right to self-governance and challenging the EU to acknowledge the state of crisis into which it has fallen.

He also came to the meeting to showcase the substantial economic progress made by Hungary in recent years, thanks to free market policies of fiscal restraint and pro-business legislation that fly in the face of European bureaucracy, social assistance and hyper-regulation.

“In 2008 we started from a point where Greece was,” Orbán recalled. “The government of Hungary at the time was the first to turn to the Monetary Fund and the EU for a loan. Since then, we have fully repaid this money, ahead of maturity.”

Fed-up French voters warn ‘CIVIL WAR’ could be needed to liberate nation from EU (Video)

French voters who are backing Marine Le Pen have said a civil war may be necessary to liberate the country from the control of Brussels.

Voters who are angry at the political establishment have said a civil war is on the cards if France does not break away from the European Union.

The French presidential election is fast approaching, with two candidates advocating a Frexit gaining the most ground in recent days.

Both left-wing Jean-Luc Melenchon and right-wing Marine Le Pen are pushing for a campaign to leave the European project.

Several voters in the historically industrial town of Amiens told German channel DW that they were backing Marine Le Pen so she could take back control over their borders.

One young worker said he was voting for the Front National because they were the only party with answers to France’s growing unemployment, which sits just over 10 per cent.

But, he warned, the country may need to fight on the streets for their freedom from the European Union.

The young man told DW: “Leaving the euro will hurt at first and make a lot of people very angry. It could even trigger a civil war to get there.

The vote that could wreck the European Union

Why the French presidential election will have consequences far beyond its borders.

It has been many years since France last had a revolution, or even a serious attempt at reform. Stagnation, both political and economic, has been the hallmark of a country where little has changed for decades, even as power has rotated between the established parties of left and right.

Until now. This year’s presidential election, the most exciting in living memory, promises an upheaval. The Socialist and Republican parties, which have held power since the founding of the Fifth Republic in 1958, could be eliminated in the first round of a presidential ballot on April 23rd. French voters may face a choice between two insurgent candidates: Marine Le Pen, the charismatic leader of the National Front, and Emmanuel Macron, the upstart leader of a liberal movement, En Marche! (On the Move!), which he founded only last year.

The implications of these insurgencies are hard to exaggerate. They are the clearest example yet of a global trend: that the old divide between left and right is growing less important than a new one between open and closed. The resulting realignment will have reverberations far beyond France’s borders. It could revitalise the European Union, or wreck it.

The Who’s Roger Daltrey: Brexit the ‘Right Thing for this Country’

Roger Daltrey, founder and lead singer of the English rock band The Who, reiterated his support for Britain’s independence from the European Union in an interview this week.

The United Kingdom officially filed to leave the European Union on Wednesday, and the London-born rocker says he supports Brexit because a “majority of this country felt that their voices weren’t being heard.”

“We are getting out, and when the dust settles I think that it’ll be seen that it’s the right thing for this country to have done, that’s for sure,” Daltrey told NME.

“I am not anti-European, but I am anti the present way we are being governed in Europe,” Daltrey explained “It’s got nothing to do with any of the immigration issues or any of that for me. It was to do with much more. The majority of this country felt that their voices weren’t being heard. It would have been nice to do a deal with Europe but they didn’t want to do a deal, and they sent Cameron back with a bag.”

He added: “I’m sad we voted how we voted, but I think we have to go with it now. This country will always be alright, I don’t worry about it. You know it’s going to be bumpy on the way—we expected that; the ones that voted to get out. But Iceland had it a bit bumpy when they went bankrupt, but oh not now.”

Daltrey previously expressed support for Brexit in May, saying the European Union was “set up by a bunch of crooks” and was “undemocratic” and “highly dysfunctional.”

Le Pen: ‘We Need to Protect Our Nation Once Again’

Marine Le Pen, the populist frontrunner in the first round of France’s upcoming presidential elections, struck a combative pose in a March 20th candidates’ debate, vowing to control immigration, tame the European Union (EU), and put France first.

“The EU is locking us up,” she declared, making it clear she plans on being a national leader, not the governor of a European region in hock to the German chancellor.

“I want to be the president of the French republic, not the vice chancellor of Mrs Merkel,” she asserted.

“You, the French citizens, have the right to make up your own minds, to protect yourselves … from the sources of insecurity that come from opening up our borders.”

While stopping short of formally endorsing a French exit from the EU, Ms. Le Pen promised to “organise negotiations with Europe so that we can restore the liberties that you deserve. I will organise a referendum and there will be a national debate.”

Those negotiations would hinge principally on the bloc’s free movement regime and the borderless Schengen Area, which Ms. Le Pen sees as undermining French security.

“How can we know who’s coming or going? If they’re buying weapons in Belgium?” she asked, echoing former Interpol chief Robert Noble’s assessment of the EU migration regime as “an international passport-free zone for terrorists to execute attacks on the Continent and make their escape”.

“Radical Islamism should not be allowed in our country,” the Front National leader reiterated. “We need to protect our nation once again.”
