Hungarian Minister Challenges CNN’s “Fake News” About Suspending Parliament

Has to explain to Christiane Amanpour how democracy works.

Published

During an appearance on Christiane Amanpour’s show, Hungarian minister Péter Szijjártó challenged CNN’s “fake news” about Hungary suspending its own parliament.

Last month, CNN and a host of other news networks suggested that the decision represented a “coup” and evidence that Prime Minister Viktor Orban was behaving like a dictator.

In reality, the decision was passed by parliament itself and had the support of around 90% of Hungarians. The parliament can also vote to lift the decree whenever it chooses. Hardly a dictatorship.

The law was passed to give Orban extra powers to deal with the coronavirus crisis.

“Furthermore, the law does not dissolve parliament but instead requires the government to remain in constant consultation with parliament members, which means parliament continues to meet in-person and work with the government in the fight against the coronavirus,” reports ReMix. “Many other countries have also enacted similar measures to help governments respond quickly to the crisis.”

During the CNN interview, Amanpour asked Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó why parliament is closed.

“Ok, that’s news to us,” said Szijjártó, explaining how he had spoken to parliament five times already that week.

“I read these reports and I have to tell you that these reports never speak about the truth… given the fact that there are four countries in the European Union applying a similar kind of solution: Poland, Malta, Croatia, and us,” Szijjártó said.

“And there are four other [European] countries in which the government can go along with the state of emergency or state of danger without any kind of decision made by the parliament,” he added.

After Amanpour tried to suggest that because the ruling conservative Fidesz party has a two thirds majority in parliament, the state of emergency would never be lifted, Szijjártó had to explain to her how democracy works.

“First of all, the composition of the Parliament is not an outcome of a lottery, but elections. So, I think it is kind of natural that in a parliament there is majority and there is a minority, and the majority is definitely for the government… Many media outlets have spread lies and fake news around this law,” Szijjártó said, noting that government power is not unlimited.

“One of these fake news items is that it says that the government has an uncontrolled and unlimited possibility to make decrees, which is not true,” Szijjártó said. “The law says very clearly that we can make decrees only in accordance with protecting the people, the country and the economy from the challenges related to the virus.”

Hungary is often targeted by globalist media outlets because it has remained steadfast against the migrant invasion and Orban has overseen the institution of populist, pro-family policies that are at odds with the internationalist, open borders model.

Biden Given ‘Cheat Sheet’ That Instructs Him How to Say “Hello” And Sit Down

Why does the president of the free world need tips on how to behave like a normal human?

Published

Joe Biden was photographed holding a “cheat sheet” given to him by his advisers instructing him on how to enter a room, say “hello,” sit down, talk to other people and then depart.

Yes, really.

“YOU enter the Roosevelt Room and say hello to participants,” states the bullet point list before going on to tell Biden, “YOU take YOUR seat.”

“Press enters,” the cheat sheet continues. “YOU give brief comments (2 minutes). Press departs (t). YOU ask Liz Shuler, President, AFL-CIO, a question. Note: Liz is joining virtually. YOU thank participants. YOU depart.”

Why on earth does the leader of a free world require an instruction manual on how to behave like a normal human? This is like something you would give to an autistic child doing a high school presentation.

“How mentally out of it is this geriatric patient that he needs to be told to sit down and say hello?” asks Chris Menahan.

“He’s already the least popular president in American history and yet they just continue to use and abuse him for all he’s worth.”

As we have exhaustively highlighted, Biden’s mental frailties, which routinely manifest themselves in the form of verbal gaffes and confused, befuddled behavior, are of real concern to Democrats given that Biden will be 82 years old by the time he begins a second term.

Another example occurred earlier this month when Biden appeared baffled as to whether or not he was visiting Saudi Arabia.

Last week, he also mistakenly made reference to the “L-G-B-T-Q-L” community.

According to a report by the New York Times, Democrats are panicking at the thought of Biden once again going up against Trump for the 2024 presidential election.

“They have watched as a commander in chief who built a reputation for gaffes has repeatedly rattled global diplomacy with unexpected remarks that were later walked back by his White House staff, and as he has sat for fewer interviews than any of his recent predecessors,” reported the newspaper.

Ukraine Bans Main Opposition Party, Seizes All Its Assets

‘Beacon of democracy’ cracks down on dissent.

Published

on

Ukrainian authorities have banned the country’s main opposition party and seized all its assets, once again undermining the narrative that President Zelensky is presiding over a beacon of democracy.

The country’s Ministry of Justice announced the move via Facebook, revealing that the Opposition Platform — For Life had been shut down and its assets, money and property transferred to the state.

The party had previously had its operations suspended in March after it was accused of being complicit with Russia and being “anti-Ukrainian.”

The ban means that Zelensky’s main political opposition has been eliminated. The OPPL was the second largest party in the country and its popularity surpassed that of Zelensky’s Servant of the People party last year.

Its leader Viktor Medvedchuk, who claims he is merely looking out for the interests of the Ukrainian people by seeking better relations with Russia, was placed under house arrest last month.

The announcement said the party was suspected of acting to “undermine the sovereignty” of Ukraine, with authorities have already banned 10 other political opposition parties for the same reason.

Last month, President Zelensky signed a bill into law that gave the green light to ban any party that challenged the government’s policy on the Russian invasion, empowering courts to seize assets without the right to appeal.

While opposition parties are being obliterated, Ukrainians who engage in dissent are also being rounded up and arrested by armed men from the Ukraine Security Service.

As we previously highlighted, Ukraine is also attempting to extradite and imprison citizens who live in other European countries if they criticize Zelensky.

Meanwhile, President Zelensky is still being hailed by western legacy media outlets as a valiant defender of democracy in contrast to the brutal autocratic dictators who control Russia.

What a joke.

Macron Shocked as Le Pen’s Party Makes Huge Gains

National Rally secures 88 seats to rock the establishment.

Published

French President Emmanuel Macron has lost his majority in the National Assembly after a night which saw stunning gains for right-wing populist Marine Le Pen’s party.

Le Pen and her National Rally party turned 8 parliamentary seats into a whopping 88 while Macron’s Ensemble was reduced to 245 seats, well short of the 289 required to form a working majority.

National Rally can now form a parliamentary group for the first time since 1986 and wield significant influence on policy decisions for the first time in a generation.

“This parliamentary group will be by far the largest in the history of our political family,” said Le Pen while congratulating her supporters.

The group will act as “a firm opposition to Emmanuel Macron, without connivance, and respectful of the institutions,” she added.

Experts were stunned as to how Le Pen ended up winning 88 seats given that her party’s first round score suggested a significantly lower figure.

Mathieu Gallard, research director at Ipsos France, lamented how “blocking the extreme right at all costs no longer works at the local level: in the context of NUPES/RN face-offs, Ensemble voters abstained.”

French newspapers reacted to the result by asserting that France is now “ungovernable” after a political “earthquake” had occurred.

Macron’s Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne reacted badly by saying the proper functioning of democracy, which worked to hand Macron’s party a heavy blow, represented a “risk” for France.

“This situation represents a risk for our country, given the risks we’re facing nationally and internationally,” she said. “We will work as of tomorrow to build a working majority.”

Macron will also have to deal with far-left leader Jean-Luc Mélenchon, who formed a coalition of leftist parties which ended up with them winning 131 seats.

While she didn’t go as hard on the issue as presidential rival Eric Zemmour, Marine Len Pen has spoke out against France’s inability to absorb huge numbers of migrants.

Back in 2020, she called for a national referendum in order to stop what she called the “submersion” of France via a “globalist” program of mass immigration.
