The European Court of Justice (ECJ) has ordered Hungary to pay €200 million for “failing to respect” EU law, including on procedures for granting international protection to non-EU nationals and deporting those staying illegally in the country. It has also imposed a fine of €1 million a day on Hungary if it fails to comply with Brussels’ law on migrants.

Behind the complicated wording lies the reality, namely that the court wants to force our country to allow the uncontrolled entry of foreign masses. There is also a tactical background to the case. The court judgment was already issued before the European Parliament elections, but it was not made public until afterward. They knew full well that it would have meant an even greater defeat than the current one for the globalist, pro-migration liberal parties in Hungary.

This is one of the most terrible aspects of the whole story. In other words, it is no longer a question of defending some European values that make the old continent a better place. That is not the case. The court has become an instrument of globalist politics, both practically and tactically. It has become part of the Brussels payroll bureaucracy, an integral part of the struggle to defeat the forces that oppose the political mainstream.

“In times of war, the law falls silent,” said the Romans, In other words, in wartime, any offense can be committed without consequence. Now, there is a war between the globalists and the nationalists, and the mainstream is committing every violation it can. The question is, how long can they do this?

However, the Romans never said that the law must necessarily take sides and that as a belligerent party it must take part in the battle. Now that this has happened, we can no longer talk about law. The appeal to law in this case is the “cover story,” whose task is to manufacture consent for illegality and ensure Hungary’s demise is binding.

According to EU rules, Hungary must protect the Schengen border, which in this case is also the EU’s external border with Serbia. Hungary is now being punished for acting legally. This absurdity can only happen in the EU.

We are the only country in the EU that consistently looks after its own interests and does not subordinate its foreign, domestic and economic policy to dogmas, ideologies and foreign interests.

The European “big boys” have much to fear, because a recent survey shows that 70 percent of Europeans refuse to accept more migrants, and this sentiment was reflected in the recent elections as well — and not only in Hungary.
