TRIUMPH: Orban Wins Big in Hungary (video)

Hungary’s conservative-populist premier Viktor Orbán has won a third term in office in a landslide election victory.

Ten days ago, I advised “Keep an Eye on Hungary’s Election.” President Viktor Orban stood up against the European Union’s open-borders plan to flood the continent with Muslim “refugees.” He was targeted for defeat by left-wing activists funded by George Soros. Orban didn’t back down. Instead, he told the truth about the “invasion” of Europe and called out Soros by name. Voters just re-elected him by landslide:

Hungary’s conservative-populist premier Viktor Orbán has won a third term in office in a landslide election victory. With 85 per cent of the votes counted, Europe Elects is sharing stats which suggest Fidesz, the party founded by Prime Minister Orbán while he was a young anti-Communist dissident, has won 134 seats, along with his coalition partners — which would give him with not merely a decisive majority but an outright super-majority, allowing changes to the national constitution. . . . The results will be extremely disappointing for top bureaucrats in the European Union and activists working for so-called civil society NGOs funded by billionaire open borders campaigner George Soros, who had been hoping for an upset defeat, or for Fisesz to lose its super-majority, at least. Prime Minister Orbán has been the most determined foe of the compulsory migrant quota regime the EU has attempted to impose at the behest of pro-migration NGOs, and served as the focal point for an increasingly influential eurosceptic, anti-mass migration bloc within the EU centred on the Visegrád Four countries.

Orban supporters celebrate the election victory.

The Guardian reports from Hungary:

“We have won.” With these three words Viktor Orbán began to address the crowds outside Fidesz headquarters. He starts by congratulating the voters for turning out to vote. “Thank you for having placed your faith in us; thank you for having stuck with us.” Viktor Orbán continues by thanking “all the people who prayed for us and prayed for me personally”. Also on the list of thanks are the party volunteers and his wife. He says we now have a major battle behind us. “This has been a decisive win… in the future we are going to be able to defend our mother country.” Orbán is leading the crowd in song — it is the anthem of the revolution from 1848, Euronews says. He finishes by saying “long live Hungary, thank you for everything.”

Gosh, it’s as if standing up for your country is popular, or something.

35 MILLION Migrants Heading To Europe, As Hungary Builds Second Fence

SHOCK estimates predict up to 35 MILLION refugees could head for Europe due to hugely unstable situations across the world.

by Rob Virtue and Agnes Kegl in Express

Up to 35 million migrants

Migrants seen rioting at the Serbia/Hungary border this week

The huge figure was revealed today by Hungary’s minister for foreign affairs and trade Peter Szijjártó.

Speaking as the country begins work on its second fence to stop migrants heading across its border he predicted the current crisis will continue for years.

Mr Szijjártó told the Hungarian Times: “The name of the fence is ‘Temporary Security Border Fence’ but I think there is no question that in this case temporary means years.

“It’s a self delusion to call this situation a migration crisis; it is a massive migration of nations, with inexhaustible reserves.

“I don’t think that the analysis results, stating that 30-35 million people out there could possibly become migrants, would be an exaggeration.

“Libya, Yemen, Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan are all countries with a huge population and an extremely unstable situation.”

The Hungarian government also defended itself from criticism over its fences.

It comes as a ten-year-old migrant boy with a severe lung condition died in Hungary.

His mother and siblings successfully made the journey to Germany but his father stayed behind with the poorly youngster, who was buried on Friday.

The first barrier was put up at its border with Serbia but, after migrants changed their route, they have now begun erecting a 41 kilometre fence at Croatia.

Migrants look to break through to Hungary as that sees them enter the European Union’s Schengen Zone which offers free movement between member countries.

He said: “The recent international political decisions created an unstable situation around Europe that makes sure that the amount of people won’t decrease.

Peter Szijjártó said estimates of 30-35 million were likely true

“This is why it’s extremely important to protect our borders.

“This issue wasn’t this important until now, so the European Union neglected it a little bit.

“It became clear that – though its the border of Schengen – Greece couldn’t protect the border of the European Union.

“The Hungarian/Serbian border is another border of Schengen. If we want to follow the orders of Schengen, we have to build a physical obstruction, because this 175 km long area is quite easy to cross.

“The European Union just realised what the Schengen border means.

“If we want to keep the freedom of movement in the European Union, we have to protect the outer borders.”
