HUNGARIAN Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has voiced his support for Jarosław Kaczyński, the leader of Poland’s governing conservative PiS party, who said in connection with Bill Clinton’s recent derogatory statement concerning the two countries that the former US President should “turn to a doctor”. Speaking in his regular Friday morning interview with state broadcaster Kossuth Rádió, the Prime Minister suggested that billionaire Hungarian-American financier George Soros is behind the leaders of the Democratic Party.

Both Hungarians and Poles are right to expect more respect from former and current leaders of the United States, Mr. Orbán said on Kossuth Rádió’s 180 perc programme in reaction to former US President Bill Clinton’s claims of “Putinisation” in Poland and Hungary. The Hungarian leader said he “liked” the comment made by Jarosław Kaczyński, chairman of Poland’s governing Law and Justice (PiS) party on the matter, suggesting that Mr. Clinton should “turn to a doctor”.
According to the Prime Minister, negative comments concerning Hungary, Poland and Central Europe in general, which have become more frequent since the migrant crisis, are not “casual slips of the tongue”. In explanation, he argued that “behind the leaders of the Democratic Party (…) we should see George Soros”, who has advocated for at least a million Muslims to be allowed into Europe each year, emphasizing that Hungary is a barrier to this Soros-inspired American plan. In conclusion, he claimed in connection with the former President’s remarks, in which he said that Poland and Hungary “have now decided democracy is too much trouble, therefore “they want Putin-like leadership”, that “while the mouth is Clinton’s, the voice is that of George Soros”.
With his comments, Mr. Orbán joins several Hungarian cabinet members who have blamed the billionaire, who is one of the chief backers of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, for attacks on Hungary. Speaking on Wednesday, foreign minister Péter Szijjártó said that Bill Clinton’s claims concerning Hungary are a manifestation of billionaire Hungarian-American financier George Soros’s “dissatisfaction” with the Hungarian government’s policies, while cabinet chief János Lázár said on Thursday that Mr. Soros is “ready to take an active stance” against the Orbán government, “seen as one of his most dangerous enemies in Europe”, and claimed that Soros is behind US criticisms targeting Hungary and President Barack Obama’s pro-migration policies.
At a Thursday press conference White House spokesman Josh Earnest said he was unaware of Mr. Lázár’s comments, but added: “I’m not sure they’re worthy of a response”.
Last autumn, Mr. Soros was accused by the Hungarian Prime Minister last week of deliberately encouraging the migrant crisis.
“This invasion is driven, on the one hand, by people smugglers, and on the other by those (human rights) activists who support everything that weakens the nation-state,” PM Orbán said. “This Western mindset and this activist network is perhaps best represented by George Soros”, he claimed in an interview with Hungarian state radio at the time.

Hungary Border Fence Success, Balkans Route Down to ‘a Trickle’
Hungary is making some progress, but it is not enough. All of the weasel-words and arguing over technicalities must end, and all our nations must be ruled by these racial principles: Immigration for Whites only; citizenship for Whites only; leadership by Whites only; ownership of assets by Whites only.
THE controversial fence on Hungary’s southern border with the Balkans may well have helped slow down the flow of migrants into northern Europe from the record highs reached last year.
But a visit to a newly-opened camp on Hungary’s western border with Austria showed a small but steady trickle of them are still passing through the country on their way north.
And while locals want the camp closed, it is helping to keep the issue in the public eye as Prime Minister Viktor Orban prepares a referendum in which he will ask voters to reject an EU plan to re-distribute migrants across the continent.
The tent camp in Kormend, just 2 km (one mile) from the Austrian border, was opened on May 2 and is a so-called “open-gate” centre allowing its 165 inhabitants to go freely in and out. Those interviewed by Reuters made no bones of how they got there, and where they plan to head next.
“I want to go to Germany,” said Sahed, 18, from Afghanistan, adding he would take the train back to the capital Budapest and from there offer a driver 300 euros to get him to his hoped-for destination.
Another Afghan, Niaze, said he had paid for someone to cut a hole in the fence on Hungary’s border with Serbia and, with no money left to pay a driver, was now aiming to find a way into Austria by foot. His final destination was Belgium.
The numbers are nothing like last year, when hundreds of thousands of refugees and migrants passed through Hungary, mainly on their way to Germany.
But a police spokesman in Burgenland, the Austria province just across the border, said it had decided to start border controls late last month and already 1,124 people have been stopped — among them 20 suspected human traffickers.
Hungary’s immigration office said it has registered 15,355 asylum applications so far this year. However it noted most requests are finally annulled with asylum-seekers logged as having “left for an unknown destination”. Already that was the case for 74 migrants put in the Kormend camp.
One rights group, the Hungarian Helsinki Committee, accuses the government of not taking any real steps to prevent Hungary being a transit country for migrants as it wants to keep the number of migrants as low as possible.
“It’s the interest of the authorities that asylum seekers should not stay here,” Helsinki Committee co-chair Marta Pardavi told Reuters. The Immigration office said just 221 had been granted some kind of international protection this year.
However government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs said temporary shelters like the one in Kormend had to be open-gate camps to comply with European Union protocols.
“Illegal migrants who applied for political asylum … are basically free to leave the camp and move within the country at their will,” he said, acknowledging that many migrants abused the system and tried to move on.
Orban’s tough line on migration has boosted his public support, with his Fidesz party well ahead in opinion polls.
Elections are not due till 2018. But before that, Hungary will hold a referendum in September or early October on whether to accept an EU quota system for resettling migrants.
In the past week, the government has started a full-fledged campaign for the vote, placing billboards nationwide, that say: “We are sending a message to Brussels so they understand.”
Analysts say there is only a slim chance for the referendum to be valid, as more than half of Hungary’s eligible 8 million voters need to turn out for that.
“The main aim of the government with this referendum is to keep this refugee question on the agenda,” said Peter Kreko, director of think tank Political Capital.
That was certainly the case for Kormend resident Antal Nagy, 60, who said he was staunchly against the camp.
“I think immigration into Hungary must be stopped,” he said. “(German Chancellor Angela) Merkel should put them up and feed them.”

Hollywood Jews Have Blacklisted Mel Gibson
And while police officers took him out of his car, the Oscar winner said the infamous words:
“F—ing Jews … the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world.”
After the Jews brought tremendous pressure to bear, Gibson did the revealing interview apologizing for the comments and met with Jewish leaders.
In 2007, a judge even praised him for his progress in his alcohol rehab.
But the actor who was a sex symbol in the ’80s and went on to direct in the ’90s — and make one of the most profitable movies of all time, The Passion of the Christ— has never rebounded since that summer evening.
Gibson has starred in only six films since 2006 — including one that’s coming out this summer, Blood Father. And not one had a big studio backing it.
Shane Black — director of the new movie The Nice Guys and who wrote one of Gibson’s most legendary films, Lethal Weapon — thinks that he knows why the actor has had a lack of work.
“I think he’s essentially been blacklisted in the industry,” Black told Business Insider in a new interview. “I think people don’t want to work with him.”
Gibson has had some big players in the industry try to revive his career, including friend Jodie Foster, who cast him in her 2011 directing effort, The Beaver.
But Gibson hasn’t had near the revival of another of his buddies, Robert Downey Jr., whose substance-abuse problems in the late ’90s led him to go to prison.
In fact, Downey told Black a while back that he’d like Gibson to direct an Iron Manmovie if another one happens. Black directed Iron Man 3.
But Black says that there’s been no word since, and, as far as he knows, the idea of Gibson helming Iron Man is “nothing serious.”
Black is no stranger to substance abuse, either. He’s been open about his hard-partying ways in the ’90s and his battle to get sober in 2008.
And as someone with his own struggles, Black believes that Gibson needs to be forgiven.
I’ve always been a tremendous fan of Mel Gibson, not just as an actor, but I think he’s a good guy. I just don’t believe in holding anyone accountable for something that they say while they’re drunk because if I’m drunk I’m going to be deliberately belligerent, first off. I’m going to say something that I know will piss you off and will delight in the fact that I’m destroying the house and burning it down. That’s what drunk people do. So the idea that that’s truly who a person is when he’s had a few, I don’t believe that at all. I just think that’s wrong. I know a lot of great people and they are not necessarily great when they’re drunk. So I don’t trust that.
Gibson is in postproduction on his first directing effort in a decade, the World War II drama Hacksaw Ridge starring Andrew Garfield.
The Gibson we knew may never get his full comeback, thanks to the “nasty things” he said that night with the cops, as Black puts it. But he’s getting somewhere.
