Of course it all has to do with Hungary and Poland standing against the European Union that is demanding those countries take their ‘fair share’ of migrants who have arrived illegally by the hundreds of thousands in recent years because France and Germany were spineless.
If the EU cuts off their funds, why don’t they just join the Brits and leave the EU?
Invasion of Europe news….
From the Express:
Eastern EU states such as Poland and Hungary would be punished under the proposals if they are deemed to have fallen short of the bloc’s ‘democratic values’.
Brussels’ move comes after growing calls from Germany and France, the EU’s two most influential members, to punish rebel member states.
Under the proposals, to be unveiled by the EU’s budget chief Guenther Oettinger this week, bureaucrats would freeze access to funding for EU projects.
An EU source said: “The proposal will include the temporary freezing of funds in order to motivate a change of behaviour among states.”
The measures are likely to further increase tensions between Brussels and the populist, right-wing governments in Warsaw and Budapest.
Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban has repeatedly clashed with the EU over the migrant crisis after refusing to sign up to refugee resettlement schemes.
And Poland has angered Brussels after introducing controversial judicial reforms judged anti-democratic by the European Commission.

I’ve told you before that I turn on CNN every morning so I get a feel for where the Left is going every day and today I said uh-oh, here we go on the Burmese Rohingya again. CNN featured a longer piece on the “plight” of Rohingya Muslims in Burma (a Buddhist country).
I couldn’t possibly rehash the decade long controversy (the decade I chronicled in my Rohingya Reports category where 220 posts are archived), but I want you to know why this matters to you and that is that we are admitting Rohingya refugees to live in towns near you—14,882 in the last decade—including over 1,000 since Trump became President (So much for a so-called “Muslim ban!”)
Before I get to the numbers breakdown over the last ten years….
…here is a bare bones story about stepped-up UN (with the US!) efforts to smackdown the Buddhist government of Myanmar. Continue reading “Rohingya 'refugees' back in the news (why you should care)!”→
Update April 30th: Jihad Watch: Bishops to Americans: Drop dead! Did you know that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops filed an amicus brief against the Trump Administration in the travel ban case before the high court?
I didn’t, but it really isn’t a surprise.
Of course, they are free to file briefs, but I just wish they would for once admit that they receive millions of your dollars from the US Treasury every year for their Migration Fund (nearly $100 million to the Bishops alone, not including the other millions that go to Catholic Charities to ‘care’ for those migrants).
Just once I wish they would admit they have a pecuniary interest in how the travel ban is resolved. See Catholics close 20 offices as government revenue dries up. Do you, my Catholic friends, know that the Bishops want more migrants admitted to the US from terror-producing countries? Continue reading “Playing the Catholic card at the Supreme Court last week”→
