Dear Mr. President, Invite the victorious Orban to the White House

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 9, 2018

Yesterday Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban won for Europe (although most countries don’t know it) an astounding election victory for Western Civilization.

Orban and Soros

If the President invited Orban to the White House it would strike a mighty blow against his own nemesis—George Soros!

If President Trump wanted to put icing on his recent immigration control cake, he should invite Orban to the White House and give him a lavish state dinner. Such a move would turn the whole world on its head!

Heck, use the occasion to kick start a discussion about dumping the 1951 UN Refugee Convention. (See here.)

There are many stories about Orban’s win, but Politico is a good choice to quote since they can’t control their animus (in supposed news reporting!) toward the man and what he stands for!

 

Orbán wins landslide to secure third straight term

BUDAPEST — Viktor Orbán’s right-wing Fidesz party won a landslide victory in Hungary’s general election on Sunday, setting the stage for the prime minister to pursue his nationalistic vision and fight more battles with Brussels.

The result gives Orbán a third consecutive term as prime minister and a strong platform from which to further rail against migrants and Muslims, stage crackdowns on NGOs and mount strong resistance to greater EU integration.

More clashes between Budapest and EU institutions, particularly the European Commission and European Parliament, look assured. Orbán opposed a Commission plan to distribute migrants around the bloc while the Parliament has voted to put Hungary on a path toward censure for backsliding on democratic standards.

The election result will also likely embolden far-right parties and populists across Europe inspired by Orbán.

Orbán, who built a fence on Hungary’s southern border during the 2015 migration crisis, constructed his election campaign around strong a strong nationalist and anti-migrant message. The U.N. human rights chief earlier this year branded him a racist.

It really came down to one issue—immigration. Are you listening Donald?

But a senior Fidesz official said the anti-migrant message was key. “It is simply the fear of migrants. Fidesz did a single-issue campaign and it was successful,” said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Contact the White House! and tell the President to invite the victorious Orban to his home—the White House or Mar a Lago!

Refugee contractor Miliband needs to decide….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 9, 2018

Is David Miliband going back to the UK, or is he staying in Manhattan to collect an exorbitant salary to manage the largest (financially) refugee resettlement agency in the US?  When I see news like this, I wonder.

***Update*** See this amusing bit at the Daily Mail calling Miliband the “king over the water…”

Miliband and Obama 2

Miliband applying the “double-hander” on you know who!

Maybe what he is really doing is waiting to jump back across the pond when something has been firmed-up there for him.

After all, the US resettlement program is experiencing tough times with fewer refugees, staff layoffs, head honchos bailing out, and even the possibility that the gang of nine will lose one whole agency this year.

(See Lutheran CEO—gone, and USCRI CEO—gone. )

And, there appears to be no hope for return of the good-old-days on the horizon based on what we are hearing out of the Trump Administration.

Here is the Financial Times on Miliband:

Labour fury and derision at prospect of new centrist party

David Miliband, the former Labour foreign secretary who some centrists see as a potential leader, dipped a toe back into domestic politics last week when he called for a second Brexit referendum. “The threats to peace around the world are more acute than ever,” Mr Miliband wrote in the New Statesman.

As a pal of Soros, the Clintons, Samantha Power and Obama, I don’t know how anyone would call Miliband a centrist!

And, since we pay him nearly $700,000 a year to run the International Rescue Committee, doesn’t he have enough to do without dipping toes in UK politics?

See my archive on ‘Moneybags’ Miliband here.

In some ways I’ll be sad to see him go because he is fun to write about.  Just 5 days ago I told you he was trash-talking Europe and saying countries there need to take more refugees.
