Hungarian PM Orban Undertakes a Social Experiment that may save Western Civilization

“Who would have guessed that a constellation of formerly atheistic, Communist countries would become the vanguard of the family?” – Samuel Hammond writing at National Review.

It isn’t just in Hungary either. In Poland and especially in Russia the push is on to encourage marriage and then the all important follow-up—more babies!

Why? They want to produce their own replacements and stop the flood of third world migrant workers that globalist corporations say are needed to keep the economy humming.  Never mind that the migrants have no interest in maintaining Hungarian, Polish or Russian culture (even if they work and don’t depend on welfare payments).

orban and family

Victor Orban and family.

I guess you can tell, I love this guy—Viktor Orban—because he has no fear of telling the truth. 

And, this subject interests me because in the 1970’s I was steeped in this idea that no family should have more than two children in order to save the planet.  But, guess what, only white educated young people listened. 

And, in fact, no one I ever knew made any serious effort to tell it to those in the Middle East and Africa especially where Muslims were pushing theirpeople to produce babies for Allah and to migrate.

Here is a detailed account at National Review of what, first Hungary is doing to boost its population, and what is happening in Russia and Poland to do the same.

It strikes me that a renewed focus on American family-building might be something Donald Trump should incorporate into his campaign message.

Surely you knew that the US birthrate is now below replacement levels.

Born in Hungary

(Emphasis below is mine)

From dubbing refugees from North Africa and the Middle East “Muslim invaders” to proclaiming Hungary a Christian homeland, Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orban is prominent mainly for his brand of right-wing populist nationalism. Yet behind the vitriol that defines Orban in the Western press is a government embarked on what may end up being the biggest natalist policy experiment in modern history — an experiment that is redefining the possibilities for modern social con­servatism. Can government policies coax people to have more babies? We’re about to find out.

Demographic transition — the shift from having many children per woman to just a few — is normally something hoped for in a developing country as a signal of improvements in employment opportunities and infant mortality. Yet across the developed world, birth rates have continued to fall and now dip significantly below replacement levels. It’s a phenomenon that is particularly acute in the former Communist countries of Central and Eastern Europe for reasons that are somewhat mysterious, but it has been exacerbated by emigration to richer parts of Europe. In Hungary’s case, a country of 9.8 million has lost approximately 1 million people since its population peaked in 1980.

Speaking at the World Congress of Families in Budapest last year, Orban unveiled an “action plan” for goosing Hungary’s birth rate of 1.5 children per woman to 2.1, the normal replacement rate, by 2030, thus turning the demo­graphic tide. “Europe, our common homeland, is losing out in the population competition between great civilizations,” he told the audience of Christian con­servatives. “Fewer and fewer marriages are producing fewer and fewer children, and the population is therefore aging and declining.”

Author Hammond here gives us a lengthy detailed report of how certain countries are attempting to increase birth rates and then wraps with this:

Nonetheless, American social con­servatives have a lot to learn from Eastern Europe’s experience with family policy.Despite conservative successes on the Supreme Court, progressive cultural ascendancy — from the crystallization of gay marriage and abortion rights to the ubiquity of race and gender politics — has left many traditionalists feeling beleaguered, without an agenda, and pining for a monastic life off the grid.

Meanwhile, though the jury is still out on Hungary’s birth rate, between 2010 and 2016 marriage rates increased 46 percent after declining over the previous decade.

Official statistics clearly show, in a trend that predated Orban, that reported abortions have dropped by more than a quarter over the same period, reaching historic lows. Is it so unreasonable to think that generous financial support and the cultural celebration of new mothers and their children had some­thing to do with it?

With Trump’s presidency creating political disequilibrium where es­tablished party coalitions once stood, America’s social conservatives — from working-class families to cultural Catholics — have a roadmap for re­newed relevance.

The History of Jihad shows what establishment foreign policy analysts get wrong – and what Trump gets right

Tomorrow is the big day: The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS will be available in bookstores, and Amazon and Barnes & Noble will begin shipping the book to those who have already ordered it.

The history of jihad needs to be more widely known. If it were, many of the policy errors of the last twenty years could have been avoided. Some of the things we have done wrong since 9/11, because policymakers did not know the history of jihad or why it mattered:

  1. Trying to establish democracy in Afghanistan instead of a making a more narrowly focused move to get bin Laden and destroy al-Qaeda;
  2. Removing Saddam Hussein, who was doubtless a brutal tyrant, but who was not a jihadi and was not involved in the 9/11 plot (at high levels, officials of Saudi Arabia and Iran were) — his removal ultimately led to the rise of ISIS;
  3. Supporting the “Arab Spring” movements and removing Qaddafi in Libya, giving an opening to jihad groups there;
  4. The Iran nuclear deal, enabling Iran to increase its support for jihad terror groups.

The book also shows indirectly, by the sheer force of history, what Trump is doing right:

  1. Taking immigration and border security seriously;
  2. Pummeling ISIS — beating the enemy, not “winning hearts and minds”;
  3. Supporting Israel strongly and unapologetically, without pressing it to make concessions that will not end, but will only embolden, the jihad;
  4. Cancelling the Iran deal.

New Mexico: 11 children found in ‘filthy’ compound with heavily armed Muslim ‘extremists’

Jihad in the U.S. What were they heavily armed for? We were going to find out the hard way.

“Moms arrested after 11 children found in ‘filthy’ New Mexico compound with armed Muslim ‘extremists,’ cops say,” by Katherine Lam, Fox News, August 6, 2018:

The three mothers of the 11 malnourished children found living in a filthy New Mexico compound were arrested and charged Sunday along with two men described as armed Muslim “extremists” after authorities raided the property in search of a 4-year-old boy.

Jany Leveille, 35; Hujrah Wahhaj, 38, and Subhannah Wahha, 35, were arrested and charged with neglect and child abuse of the children. The three women, who were found at the compound in Amalia, initially refused to answer any questions.

Authorities raided the compound Friday as part of their search for 4-year-old xc, who vanished last December. Abdul-Ghani’s mother reported her son missing after Wahhaj took the boy, who turned 4 on Monday, to the park in Clayton County, Ga., and didn’t return, The Albuquerque Journal reported. She added the boy suffers from a medical condition.

Officials didn’t find the 4-year-old at the makeshift compound, but discovered the children — ranging from ages 1 to 15 — living in what Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe described as “the ugliest looking, filthiest” living conditions he’s witnessed. He added that he only saw a few potatoes and a box of rice.

Hogrefe said authorities had conducted surveillance of the compound while looking for the missing boy before he decided Thursday to get a search warrant immediately after a Georgia investigator forwarded a message in which someone at the compound reportedly told another person that people at the compound were starving and needed water.

“The message sent to a third party simply said in part, ‘We are starving and need food and water,’” Hogrefe said. “I absolutely knew that we couldn’t wait on another agency to step up and we had to go check this out as soon as possible.”

Hogrefe said they found the “occupants were most likely heavily armed and considered extremist of the Muslim belief.”

When police arrived at the scene, Wahhaj was armed with an “AR-15 rifle, five loaded 30-round magazines, and four loaded pistols, including one in his pocket,” according to Hogrefe….

New asylum rules approved by GOP and Democrats would give right to migrate to US to a population at least half the size of the American Midwest

Here is yet more reason why President Trump is right: we need a border wall. The border is, aside from everything else, a national security issue. Flooding the U.S. with massive populations from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador will mean bringing in an inevitable number of gang members, and that will mean more crime and more needful deaths in the U.S. The United States does not have any obligation to take in anyone who is having difficulties from anywhere in the world. These insane asylum rules must be stopped immediately.

“Asylum Rules Would Allow Migrating Foreign Populations to Fill Half of Midwest,” by John Binder, Breitbart, July 26, 2018 (thanks to Todd):

New asylum rules approved by the GOP majority and Democrat minority House Appropriations Committee would give the right to migrate to the United States to a foreign population at least half the size of the American Midwest.

Two asylum rules pushed by Rep. David Price (D-NC) as well as Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-KS) and approved by the GOP-majority House Appropriations Committee would allow foreign nationals seeking refuge in the U.S. to migrate based on claims that they are fleeing domestic abuse or gang violence.

The asylum standards would be a direct rebuke of Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ efforts to strengthen the country’s lax asylum system. He made clear in a memo that claiming to be fleeing domestic abuse or gang violence are not legitimate claims for asylum in the U.S.

The Republican establishment and Democrats’ reversal of Sessions’ memo would give the full populations of Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras the right to migrate and seek asylum in the U.S., as all three Central American countries have been crippled for years by gangs.

As Breitbart News noted, this translates to about 32 million Central Americans being given the right to migrate. This would mean a foreign population about half the size of the American Midwest — where 67 million Americans live — would have the right to come to the country and permanently resettle.

That foreign population given the right to migrate to the U.S. would at least be 12 times the population of Chicago, Illinois, and more than 35 times the population of Columbus, Ohio.

Kansas Secretary of State and gubernatorial candidate Kris Kobach told Breitbart News he “can’t believe” any Republican lawmakers would support such a plan to expand asylum and essentially give foreign nationals the right to migrate to the U.S.

“This completely destroys the normal definition of asylum,” Kobach said. “Asylum is for people being persecuted.”

“Asylum would become meaningless and rampant with fraud because anyone can say that they live in fear of gang violence,” Kobach continued. “This would be a colossal mistake for Republicans to support this.”…

Border patrol apprehends four Muslims from Bangladesh illegally crossing into U.S.

Why are they entering the country that way? It isn’t hard to understand. The Investigative Project reported in January 2017: “A report by the Texas Department of Public Safety raises concerns about ISIS terrorists using the Mexican border both to enter and leave the country. It noted that at least 13 aspiring terrorists have tried to cross into Mexico, or considered trying, since 2012.” In 2017, nearly 180 Bangladeshi nationals were apprehended trying to cross the US/Mexican border into Texas.

“Border Patrol apprehends four men from Bangladesh,” Brownsville Herald, July 20, 2018 (thanks to Dalton):

Border Patrol agents working near the Fort Brown Golf Course in Brownsville encountered four undocumented immigrants from Bangladesh.

On Wednesday, the agents gave commands to the four men in Spanish, but it became evident the group did not know Spanish.

After inspecting their belongings for identification, Border Patrol discovered the men were from Bangladesh….

DeSantis Hearing Establishes the Muslim Brotherhood Must Be Designated as a Terrorist Organization

It is no longer a question of whether the United States will designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization. It is only a matter of when and how.

That’s the principal take-away from a congressional national security panel this morning that addressed “The Muslim Brotherhood’s Global Threat” and what the US should do about it.

“This hearing is an opportunity to discuss what the United States’ next step should be in combatting the Muslim Brotherhood’s threat,” said Congressman Ron DeSantis (R-FL), chairman of the Subcommittee on National Security of the House oversight committee.

“The Muslim Brotherhood is a militant Islamist organization with affiliates in over 70 countries,” DeSantis said. “There’s no question that the Muslim Brotherhood’s affiliates are involved in terrorism.”

The historic hearing follows a June 28 Center for Security Policy Decision Brief that called on the Trump Administration to declare the entire Muslim Brotherhood and its fronts and affiliates as terrorist organizations.

“Thankfully the Trump Administration has discarded the Obama-era policy of treating the Brotherhood as a potential ally,” DeSantis said. “Now, the questions are focused on how expansive to make the terror designation, and whether it should be done through the State Department or Treasury Department.” 

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy and a longtime associate of the Center for Security Policy, was one of the four witnesses who testified. He was the only Muslim witness, and made the case powerfully for Center-recommended policy of designating the entire Muslim Brotherhood and its fronts as terrorist entities.

In the course of his testimony, Dr. Jasser rebutted characterizations by the Brotherhood’s apologists and enablers of its critics as “haters” and “Islamophobes”:

Nothing would be more pro-Muslim than the marginalization of the Muslim Brotherhood and its direct affiliates. Making the Muslim Brotherhood radioactive would allow the light to shine upon their most potent antagonists in Muslim communities – those who reject political Islam and believe in liberty and the separation of mosque and state.

He also discussed national security risks associated with failing to designate the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates as terrorist entities. One of them is censorship of jihadist terminology in U.S. government agencies.  Dr. Jasser correctly observed that such censorship impedes analysts’ ability to protect the nation:

To think that these words and concepts, and others are off limits in the freest nation on earth, censored [in] our agencies, is just incredulous considering the growing threat we face today from violent Islamism.  It smacks of a bizarre invocation of blasphemy laws in America. It is groups like the Muslim Brotherhood that have benefited from our refusal to discuss these elements of Islam and Islamism.

The three other witnesses – Hillel Fradkin of the Hudson Institute, Jonathan Schanzer of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, and Daniel Benjamin of the Qatar-funded Brookings Institution – agreed to varying degrees that the Muslim Brotherhood constitutes a threat.  They recommended, however, more narrow terrorist designations of specific Muslim Brotherhood entities.

Chairman DeSantis observed: “It is clear that the Brotherhood constitutes a real threat to the national security interests of the United States.  We can debate the best way to counter this threat, but simply ignoring the threat is not an acceptable answer.”

The Center for Security Policy has submitted a statement for the hearing record endorsing Rep. DeSantis’ assessment and laying out the factual basis for designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization.

Center President Frank J. Gaffney urged legislators, executive branch officials, the media and the public at large to examine particularly compelling evidence of the threat the Brotherhood poses: Its 1991 Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal of the Group in North America– a secret plan for “destroying Western civilization from within” written by a top Muslim Brotherhood operative, Mohammed Akram, and introduced by the federal government into evidence in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation et.al. v. United States terrorism financing trial

Muslim on benefits for obesity sends $4,000 to Islamic State jihadi via PayPal

He was too fat to work, but not too fat to support the jihad.

Non-Muslims paying for the upkeep of Muslims is a Qur’anic dictate:

“Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (Qur’an 9:29).

The caliph Umar said the jizya payments from the dhimmis were the source of the Muslims’ livelihood:

“Narrated Juwairiya bin Qudama at-Tamimi: We said to `Umar bin Al-Khattab, ‘O Chief of the believers! Advise us.’ He said, ‘I advise you to fulfill Allah’s Convention (made with the Dhimmis) as it is the convention of your Prophet and the source of the livelihood of your dependents (i.e. the taxes from the Dhimmis.)’” (Bukhari 4.53.388)

Anjem Choudary said in February 2013:

“We are on Jihad Seekers Allowance, We take the Jizya (protection money paid to Muslims by non-Muslims) which is ours anyway. The normal situation is to take money from the Kafir (non-Muslim), isn’t it? So this is normal situation. They give us the money. You work, give us the money. Allah Akbar, we take the money. Hopefully there is no one from the DSS (Department of Social Security) listening. Ah, but you see people will say you are not working. But the normal situation is for you to take money from the Kuffar (non-Muslim) So we take Jihad Seeker’s Allowance.”

“Pensioner, 44, on Centrelink benefits because he’s overweight ‘sent $4,000 to an American ISIS fighter on PayPal,’” by Joy Joshi, Daily Mail Australia, July 13, 2018:

A disability pensioner who was accused of funding an American Islamic State fighter has been ordered by court to stand trial.

Mr Isa Kocoglu, who is on a pension because of his obesity and mental health issues, has been committed to trial on seven charges by Melbourne Magistrates Court on Friday.

The 44-year-old allegedly sent almost $4000 using PayPal to a known ISIS fighter born in Texas, United States of America.

The man allegedly deposited cash for known jihadist, Yahya al-Bahrumi, at a Commonwealth Bank branch in Sydney’s south eastern suburbs between November 2013 and August 2014.

Mr Bahrumi, born in Texas as John Georgelas, is reportedly considered to be one of Islamic State’s top producers of English language propaganda.

The bushy-bearded man, accused of financially supporting a foreign fighter in Syria, remains on bail.

He has pleaded not guilty and was ordered to stand trial in the Supreme Court.

The Australian Federal Police allege Mr Kocoglu sent the money after multiple cash deposits were made at a Commonwealth Bank branch at Kogarah, in Sydney’s south.

His Hampton Park home was searched in June 2016 and counter-terror officers seized several devices, the court was told.

But he was not charged until 16 months later after officers had pored over the data, including his Facebook history.

‘It was about four terabytes worth of data seized,’ Australian Federal Police officer Astrid Dahmen said.

‘So that took some time to go through and analyse.’

A police translator was called on to interpret some data, including an analysis of the Arabic word ‘hijra’.

‘In an Islamic sense it means ”migration in the cause of Allah”,’ translator Vera Oujami said.

‘If there is the context of a caliphate or jihad.’…

VIDEO: 2018 U.S. Election Cycle and Sharia Compliant Candidates

We recently said that we hoped to see the Muslim Brotherhood designated a Foreign Terrorist Organization under President Trump and that we believed that would have a major impact on campaign donations and slow the progress of what is happening across America.  Especially in the 2018 election cycle.  We may actually see it happen!

Our friends at Center for Security Policy released an article on July 28, 2018 that detailed specific reasons why the designation is required and must be done.  DECISION BRIEF: Designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization

We believe Congress was listening!

Representative Ron DeSantis (Republican candidate for FL Governor) led the sub-committee on National Security hearing, Thursday, July 12, 2018.  Meeting on the issue of the Muslim Brotherhood being designated as a terrorist organization.

This 2 hour hearing is MUST WATCH for anyone interested in the topic of the Muslim Brotherhood’s influence in America and the world.

In 2 hours you will hear excellent factual information about the danger of the MB and you will hear testimony downplaying the danger we know the MB presents.

The substantive problem with a terrorist designation is that the MB groups like CAIR have deftly avoided violating US designation criteria.  Even though we KNOW they are doing evil, we can’t touch them.

You will see this conundrum played out in the testimony.

As you may know, the MB has repositioned their primary methodology into the political arena here in America.

Their main organization for political involvement is the UNITED SATES COUNCIL OF MUSLIM ORGANIZATIONS (USCMO). http://www.uscmo.org/

The enemy is relentless, so must we be!

Orban vs. Merkel: The Titans Face Off in Berlin

Invasion of Europe news…

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban traveled to Germany this week for a pow-wow with Angela (Mama) Merkel over, what else, migrants.

Hey, Mr. President, you have had Merkel to the White House, it is now time to invite Orban. Ask him how well his border fence is working and watch media heads explode!

Here (below) is just one of many accounts of what happened.

Merkel: Unlike you, we are humanitarians. (La-La land language!)

Orban: We do believe in solidarity with you—our fences are helping to stem the flow of invaders to Germany(Realist language)

From ABC News:

Germany’s Merkel and Hungary’s Orban get testy in public over how to handle refugees

The starkly contrasting approaches Germany and Hungary’s leaders have taken toward refugees were on public display Thursday when they clashed during a press conference.

“The viewpoint of Hungary and Germany is quite different,” when it comes to the treatment of migrants and asylum-seekers from Africa and the Middle East, said German Chancellor Angela Merkel at a joint news conference held with visiting Hungarian leader Viktor Orban.

Merkel—-we will keep our souls even if it means we lose Western Civilization:

“I believe — and this is the difference –,” said Merkel, “Europe’s soul is humanity. And if we want to keep that soul, … then [Europe] must not close itself off.”

Hungary border fence (2)

Hungary border fence.

Orban responded by praising Hungary’s fenced off borders with Serbia and Croatia, which he said were guarded “by 8,000 armed men,” there to keep migrants out of Hungary and, Orban noted, out of central European places like Germany.
