David, Goliath and a dead horse

Position: In next week’s EU summit, the primary topic of discussion will again be mandatory refugee quota allocations
In early January the new UN Secretary General will take office. He is António Guterres, the former Prime Minister of Portugal, who was the President of the Socialist International. It has already been revealed that the General Assembly chose badly in October, when they unanimously elected him to replace the departing South Korean Ban Ki-Moon, who served for ten years. The Portuguese politician headed the UN High Commission for Refugees for ten years, and on many occasions he advocated for the rights of the refugees. The Portuguese bishops also praised Guterres, who is a faithful Catholic, for his faith in humanity after his nomination for the post of UN Secretary-General.
Well, the other day the soon-to-be new Secretary General said the following at a conference in Lisbon: “Migration is not the problem but the solution.” In his view, “It must be recognized that migration is inevitable and will not stop,” so “we must convince Europeans that migration is inevitable, and the multi-ethnic, multicultural, multi-religious societies are the ones generating wealth.” He called on politicians for tolerance and put into focus rational arguments to support their decisions. According to him, they must choose ideology instead of focusing on their next national parliamentary elections, because if you abandon ideas and ideology, it will be very difficult to bounce back again.
So this left-wing migration-philic politician will be directing the United Nations for the next five years. This is an ominous sign for us Europeans, because the vast majority of UN member states are not recipients of but source countries for migration. In other words, they support migration, and support Guterres’ “idea” that European countries must to accept, receive and distribute refugees from Asia and Africa more effectively. António Guterres does not understand, however, that there seem to be many millions seeking a better life in Europe, and migrants transported here by human trafficking gangs are not the same as real refugees in real danger — or he deliberately confuses the two categories. Just as the top offices of the European Union are still under the control of stupid and raving left-wing bureaucrats. Those who are always interested in massive and illegal immigration to the European Union, and in spreading it among the member states.
Anyone who thinks that migration is the solution is like the simpleton who has not noticed that he is sitting on a dead horse, and wonders why he cannot escape from the fast-approaching prairie fire. The future UN Secretary-General — who is not even in office yet — has not yet noticed that Germany, after spending a year with Merkel’s well-intentioned, naïve, yet suicidal Willkommenskultur doctrine, has also got off the dead horse. [I do not think the Germans have got off that proverbial horse just yet. — translator]. A few months ago Angela Merkel admitted: “If I knew what was going to happen I would turn the clock back many years.” She admitted that Germany and she herself were not prepared for the refugee crisis: “In recent years we did not do everything right, and we were not the world champions of the integration.” Germany is now at a point where a lot of public money is being spent to support and encourage the Asian and African asylum seekers to leave voluntarily and return home. The federal government estimates that since the beginning of last year, more than one million asylum seekers arrived, and by the end of this year, only around one hundred thousand people have left Germany, including nearly twenty-seven thousand deported, which is huge peak in decades of statistics.
In next week’s EU summit, the main subject matter will be the mandatory refugee quota allocation. According to the latest information, the mandatory quota supporters’ camp is slowly melting, but a great battle is expected as Brussels, Berlin, Rome, Athens and others still want to distribute economic migrants among the member states, instead of halting them with unified force at the borders of Europe. Against this, standing hardest and most consistently, are Hungary and Poland, and next to them the Czech and Slovak governments. Prime Minister Viktor Orbán expects the eventual failure of those governments that do not understand that people do not want immigration; they do not want to see strangers in their midst. It’s only a matter of time, therefore — such as in his last Friday’s radio interview, when he said of the opponents of immigration: “We must hold the fort, until eventually we will have a majority.” About the scheduled EU summit in mid-December — regarding expected developments in immigration — the Hungarian Prime Minister said: “The match is a draw for now.” The balance of power was characterized by him with the example of David and Goliath, with the remark that the Visegrad Four are David. “The European Union’s decision-making system, however, requires that the prime ministers must make only unanimous decisions on important matters, so even David has a chance,” he said.
For Europe — in addition to the persistent resistance of the Visegrad countries — it may help bring a favorable turn in the French presidential elections next spring, and in the fall the German parliamentary elections. The sour choice for UN Secretary General may be offset by the new US president, who is also coming into office in January. Donald Trump may be a “Goliath”, but he will be a good ally of Christian values and national interests against the Internationalists, bravely facing off against the Globalists, and most likely a good ally for the Visegrad countries, including our country in particular. In history it rarely happens that David and Goliath are not enemies of each other, but friends. Moreover, none of them are sitting backwards on a dead horse.
