Hungarian government eyes punitive taxes for ‘refugee’ activists
Viktor Orban is planning to increase pressure on migrant enablers and their supporters within the country. NGOs are facing punitive taxes, and it is not the first measure of this kind being rolled out.

Hungary’s popular government plans additional taxes for NGOs helping migrants by forcing them to cover their expenses mostly by foreign donations.
Hungarian Interior Minister Sandor Pinter announced the new measures on Wednesday after a government meeting. The tax imposed on “refugee” activists will be 25 percent.
The measures will be filed to parliament in February, Janos Lazar, Minister in Charge of the Prime Minister’s Office, told Bloomberg on Thursday. The draft bill will be voted by parliament after deliberation in different councils and leagues.
The measure is part of a planned package of laws intended to regulate the work of NGOs which are associated with the Soros Plan. Billionaire George Soros has largely aided and financed the migrant invasion into Europe.
The “Stop-Soros-Package” specifies moreover that organisations which aid “illegal migrants”, will have to register with the courts.
Persons considered to be aiding migrants may be barred from border areas, while foreigners may be deported.
A law is already in place since 2017 to force civil bodies receiving more than 24 000 Euros per year in foreign funding, to register with the courts. They are labelled “foreign-aided organisations” in all publications by law. It is currently being challenged as a “violation of contract” by the EU.
Prime minister Viktor Orban’s government has targeted the Soros Plan relentlessly, especially since the beginning of the year.
Orban has publicly accused the US billionaire Soros, who funds numerous civil organisations, of wanting flood Europe with Muslims in order to destroy its “Christian and national identity”. He also is the favorite to win a third consecutive term in April 8 elections.
German daily Die Welt denied any such plan by Soros despite mounting evidence of his involvement in the migration crisis.
On May 12, 2016, a leaked report of the International Migration Institute (IMI), an official project of Soros’s Open Society Foundations (OSF), provided an important window to view the working relationships among the IMI refugee activists and their allies inside the Obama administration and the United Nations.
The nine-page report, by top IMI staffers Anna Crowley and Kate Rosin, entitled “Migration Governance and Enforcement Portfolio Review,” was one of many Soros/OSF documents released by DCLeaks.com.
Soros staffers Crowley and Rosin called for “accepting the current crisis as the new normal and moving beyond the need to react”.
Their report also provides revealing details on the Soros/IMI/OSF relationship to Goldman Sachs insider Peter Sutherland, the UN’s top globalist agent in charge of designing and implementing the UN’s chaos-producing migration programs.
“The Columbia Global Policy Initiative (CGPI), which hosts the secretariat for Peter Sutherland, the UN Secretary General’s Special Representative on International Migration, has been able to take advantage of momentum created by the current crisis to shape conversations about rethinking migration governance,” Crowley and Rosin wrote in the leaked report.
The Soros staffers continued: “IMI provided project support for the drafting of The Sutherland Report, which aims to set the stage for institutional reforms to global migration governance, and to break new ground on protections for migrants outside the asylum system.”
In addition, Sutherland and Soros both sit on the Advisory Board of the Global Policy Institute (GPI), a leading think tank promoting open borders and unlimited migration under the guise of “global governance”.
It is worth noting that the Columbia Global Policy Initiative (CGPI), which the Soros report mentions funding and collaborating with, refers to the organisation established at Columbia University that has become a leading force for the radical migration agenda.
The Soros/IMI report noted:
When we made the CGPI grant, even we were somewhat skeptical about the appetite for reform of the institutions that govern elements of migration at the international level, and the pace at which it might proceed. Nonetheless, we recognized the importance of starting this discussion, and the political capital Sutherland could leverage to bring high-level attention to the issue. This gamble has arguably paid off: as the September UN and President Obama’s summits on migrants and refugees have taken shape, Sutherland’s team has effectively drawn on work and thinking it had already done to influence the scope and deliverables of these two meetings.

The Ursula von der Leyen Affair
After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.
Publisher of Unique Literature Worldwide Blocked by International Distributor
Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
Care prompts bishops to criticize transgender ideology
The Catholic bishops of the Scandinavian countries presented an open five-page letter criticizing transgender ideology on March 21, just before Easter. The document primarily expresses care and advice and was read aloud in Catholic churches in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, and Iceland. Cardinal Anders Arborelius, Bishop of Stockholm, is one of the signatories of the document.
Brits Forced to Live in Darkness and Cold
Food prices are rising at a furious pace, fastest in Scotland in almost half a century. At the same time, energy prices are at record highs. People are forced to choose between freezing or going hungry, and a majority of Scots are forced to live in cold and darkness to cope with bills. Old generations' tricks for saving and keeping warm are returning. Nevertheless, it is feared that 10,000 Brits will die of cold homes this winter. We present the Swedish Public Health Agency's guidelines on indoor temperature. Governments in Europe are introducing rationing and monitoring of food purchases. Net-zero emissions are a lie that, in practice, de-industrializes the West and dramatically lowers our standard of living.

Lisbon opens borders to all Portuguese speakers
LisbonNot only the German and Italian governments keep opening new paths for immigration. Portugal, too, has opened a Pandora's box and is paving the way for possibly millions of non-European immigrants to the EU – something which is not mentioned by the mainstream media.
Illegal immigration to Italy has reached its highest level ever
RomeIn Italy, despite the overwhelming right-wing electoral success in September, there is still nothing to be seen of the promised asylum turnaround – on the contrary. Giorgia Meloni has been in office for five months, but the arrivals of migrants in Italy have doubled compared to the previous year.
