Hungary Praises Trump's NATO Stance

Source: Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto

Of course, much of this is due to the common stances of the US and Hungary when it comes to autonomy and sovereignty. Hungary is also one of the countries that joined the US in withdrawing from the UN migration foolishness. Both administrations also believe that walls work. Hungary has constructed walls on their borders, which angered some members of the EU and Brussels.

The US and Hungary recently signed a Defense Cooperation Agreement. This document partners the US and Hungary to be "better positioned to meet and overcome current and future challenges that threaten stability in the region and beyond.”

Szijjarto said that Trump has brought a new light to Central European countries that were only lectured by the Obama Administration.

Szijjarto:
Since the current administration has been in power, the relationship has totally changed and the relationship is based on mutual respect which used not to be the case. So before this administration took office, ‘lecturing’ was basically the right expression to describe our relationship.

. . .

We understand the global liberal political elite and global liberal media hate your president, they hate what he has been doing, but they hate what we have been doing as well.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has brought a new and better relationship to Hungary, which was never visited by Obama's Secretary of State. Never. Instead, Obama sent an underling with a list of domestic reforms for Hungary.

Szijjarto:
She basically threw a paper on the table when we had the negotiations ... where some instructions were written how we should change our constitution, how we should change our regulation regarding media, constitutional court, churches, so on and so forth and she told me if we could comply with these instructions or advices then it would be possible to speak about enhancing the bilateral political cooperation.

I mean, this is a clear interference into domestic issues, telling another country what to decide.
As expected, Obama's people say the relationship has been mischaracterized by Szijjarto.

No matter what happened, the relationship between the US and Hungary is better than it was before.

Szijjarto:
We are very happy that this administration looks at us Central Europeans as allies instead of lecturing us how to accommodate our life . . . a totally different approach . .
.

The Cheerleaders for Failure have said that Trump is weakening NATO with his demands to increase military spending levels to what was agreed upon, but Szijjarto says it was the right thing to do and that it has made NATO stronger.

Szijjarto:
That money will allow us to invest in new capabilities our armed forces need, including advanced fighter aircraft, attack helicopters, missile defense and surveillance drones. This is good for Europe and it is good for America.
That Damn Trump.

You're suggesting the Orange Kremlinpuppett has a strategic agenda? :D

The guy who accused the Baltic states of starting the Yugoslav civil war?

European NATO members spend as much on defence as their people want to spend. Apart from the UK, France and Spain the rest of the EU doesn't have an interest in funding a global NATO capability, which is what the US military budget covers.

Tiny countries with meagre resources already contribute to actions in Afghanistan and Iraq. Their involvement under US control is not popular at home.

The Orange Kremlinpuppett suggesting they should pay more only stirs a debate against NATO and for an EU army which spends resources on European defence rather than US interests elsewhere.

It's as if the Orange Kremlinpuppett was working to undermine US interests.

Bombings in Sweden Up 30% From Last Year

Source: Sweden's Crime Prevention Council

So far this year, authorities in Sweden have reported over 45 explosions through the first three months of 2019. In many cases, local authorities report that hand grenades and high-powered gunpowder uses have been combined for these attacks.

Metropolitan areas are where most of these attacks are occurring.

In all of 2018, there were over 160 cases reported.

As a result of these blasts, many businesses have ceased working in areas where their employees have come under attack and where these blasts occur most often. UPS is one international company that has stopped all home deliveries in some regions of Sweden.

When bombers are allowed in, you get bombings.

Europe’s banks are set for a difficult earnings season

Source: CNBC
Big European banks are set to report their first-quarter earnings starting next week and some investors fear that poor report cards could lead to further volatility in the stock markets.

Several analysts have raised concerns over earnings this quarter due to external challenges such as low economic growth, uncertainty over a U.S.-China trade deal, Brexit and a U-turn on major central bank policy toward more easing.
OMG! You mean that international markets are actually connected and affect each other?!?!?!? That's not what those brigadiers act like happens. Just think how badly world markets would be if the US economy was showing signs of the same downward trajectory. Yes, international markets are connected. It's true.
Daniel Morris, senior investment strategist at BNP Paribas, told CNBC Monday that results among European corporates in the fourth quarter of 2018 was weak.

“It was one of the lowest you had in a long time. We really didn’t notice because we were recovering from the end of December and you had the (Federal Reserve) and so on. Now, we have digested the Fed, I think we have priced in most of the (U.S.-China) trade deal so earnings are going to matter this time. And if we have such minimal beats over expectations, and of course as we know expectations are very low for this quarter, I think markets are not going to be happy with that,” Morris told CNBC’s “Squawk Box Europe.”

European banks are suffering from years of weak profits, massive fines, ultra-low monetary policy and uncertainty surrounding the U.K.’s exit from the European Union. The U.S. banks, on the other hand, especially the big ones like J.P. Morgan and Citi have very strong retail operations that have kept them resilient in the face of economic headwinds.
Amazing that US banks have not suffered the same fate -- considering all those tariffs that should have had a 20th century result. But we're in the 21st century now. America has had an uncanny ability to be self-sustaining because of its resources, population size, ingenuity, exceptionalism and ability to adjust its supply lines quickly.

Spain Bans Anti-Mass Migration Populists from TV Debates

Source: Spain's Central Election Board

Globalists do all they can to stifle speech.

Santiago Abascal has called to “make Spain great again.” It was ordered that he be dropped from the televised debate. Despite leading what could be the third largest party with 11% of the vote in the latest polls.

It should be pointed out that the same election board gave special consideration to to leftist parties with no representation.

Santiago Abascal:
First they tried to manipulate our message in the media, then they sent the hooded vanguard of [Antifa activists] to attack us physically, and now they censor us to prevent Spaniards from hearing us.

It’s clear who calls the shots still in Spain: the separatists. Until April 28. Because a great victory for #LongLiveSpain will see those parties who wish to destroy our co-existence, constitution and homeland banned.
The globalists are on the ropes in the EU.

Liberty is contagious.

https://www.euronews.com/2019/04/19/gre ... eparations

Greek lawmakers voted on Wednesday to give a mandate to the government to seek reparations from Germany for the Nazi occupation during World War II, a move likely to exacerbate relations with Berlin.

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras told lawmakers that demanding reparations is "a historic and moral duty in memory of the heroes of the past...above all at a time when the extreme right, nationalism, and racism threaten Europe."

The vote, the first by parliament on the emotionally-charged issue, has tasked Tsipras' government to take "every appropriate legal and diplomatic action to satisfy Greece's demands."

Wednesday's proposal mentioned no figure but Greece's General Accounting Office estimated in 2015 that Germany owed it €278.7 billion in reparations with an additional €10.3 billion to reimburse a wartime forced loan.

The vote followed an election pledge by Tsipras in 2015 and comes ahead of national elections scheduled in October.

Paris to Hire Security Guards to Patrol Unsafe Public Spaces

Source: Le Parisien

Various public spaces in Paris are deemed unsafe -- especially for women, who are often threatened and harrassed by migrant men who camp out in these public spaces.

Security has been hired to patrol public squares, subway stations and other public areas that have become dangerous due to migrant campers.

Believe it or not, Paris has organized food distribution to their migrant campers, but had to discontinue it due to the violent fights that became more and more numerous.

France is gone.

European Parliament Poll predicts Populist Surge

Source: Parliament Polling

Those parties that support populism, are against mass migration and against the EU's oppressive rules have been predicted to improve their positions in the EU Parliament.

Even though there is an anticipated improvement of populists in the EU Parliament, it seems doubtful that they will unseat the top parties.

Merkel's party is expected to be the largest faction again. However, predictions indicate that the Socialists and Democrats will lose around 40 seats.

Macron's allies fear a globalist collapse.

With the new Brexit Party making huge polling gains in only a week, there is much to anticipate in the May elections.
