Brussels has exerted pressure on Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban for his high education law, which allegedly targets American billionaire George Soros. In his op-ed for RIA Novosti, political pundit Anatoly Vasserman explained why the EU leadership has stood up for the protection of the infamous magnate.
The European Commission is up in arms about Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s latest initiatives, especially the higher education law that could result in the closure of the Central European University (CEU) founded by Hungarian-American billionaire George Soros.The legislation passed on April 4, and inked by Hungarian President Janos Ader, requires foreign accredited universities to provide education services in the countries of their origin and bans them from awarding Hungarian diplomas in the absence of an agreement between Hungary and a country of accreditation.
The Budapest-based CEU is accredited in the United States but does not provide any educational services there. Furthermore, there is no legally binding bilateral agreement between Budapest and Washington, as required by the new Hungarian law.
Commenting on his decision, the Hungarian Prime Minister called attention to the fact that CEU has got an advantage over the other Hungarian universities since its diplomas are accepted in both Hungary and the United States.
“There is competition among universities and it is inexplicable why we should put our own universities at a disadvantage… while securing an unfair advantage for the foreign university,” Orban said as quoted by Deutsche Welle.
The move has prompted fierce criticism from academics and politicians who accused the Hungarian Prime Minister and the ruling Fidesz party of targeting billionaire Soros.Responding to his critics, Orban called Soros an “enemy of the euro” who “has destroyed lives of millions of Europeans through his financial speculations.”
In his article for RIA Novosti Russian journalist and political pundit Anatoly Vasserman pointed out that Orban’s concerns are not unjustified.
“Soros has gone down in the history of the economy with his theory of the relevance of ‘Reflexivity’ to economics [and capital markets]. That means that when he plays the stock market he doesn’t focus on the real situation in the economy in general or in any specific businesses, but only on what people ‘think’ about these businesses,” Vasserman elaborated.
To illustrate his point the Russian political pundit recalled how in 1992 the Hungarian-born billionaire nearly brought the Bank of England to its knees by dumping the pound.
“It is worth remembering [Soros’] famous stock-market trick when he borrowed a huge sum of money (about one billion pounds) and sank the British pound. [The trick] was not based on the fact that at that time the British economy was unstable. It was, of course, unstable, but the reserves of Britain would be enough to cope with this trouble. However, Soros’s speculative actions had affected the minds of big stock players. And all of them, seeing that a very large sum had been converted from British pounds to Deutsche marks, believed that the pound would not resist [the pressure]. As a result, they all rushed to convert their assets from pounds to other currencies,” Vasserman wrote.
The damage was done and Soros’s trick worked. Some say that in the process the American magnate pocketed more than a billion dollars.
“It is clear that such tricks work only in cases where you can clearly predict the state of minds of other stock exchange players or affect it,” Vasserman highlighted.
Apparently, therefore, Soros started propagating specific economic and political theories through his NGOs and educational institutions to make the behavior of those indoctrinated predictable, the political pundit wrote.
“People who have been indoctrinated by Soros’ theories are ideal assets for his game. These people are predictable and unable to protect their own interests from propaganda fantasies,” Vasserman said, “That’s why there is growing opposition to [George Soros] in the countries which experienced firsthand the consequences of his policies.”
To complicate matters further, Brussels is enthusiastically supporting the Hungarian-American billionaire, although Soros has repeatedly predicted the collapse of the euro.Vasserman recalled that having joined the European Union Hungary was forced to bring many of its industries to a halt.
The crux of the matter is that “the countries that joined the European Union later than the others are forced to abandon those of their industries which compete with manufacturers of member-states that were accepted to the EU earlier,” he explained.
According to the political pundit, it is hardly surprising in this context that the European Commission has taken the side of George Soros: Eurocrats are interested in maintaining the inequality in the bloc and “stultifying” the citizens of Central and Eastern Europe.
Meanwhile, on Saturday Orban was summoned to the Presidency of the European People’s Party (EPP) “to explain the latest developments related to the Hungarian Higher Education Act and the national consultation ‘Let’s stop Brussels,'” the EPP press release says.
“The EPP Presidency sent a clear message to Prime Minister Orban and his party, Fidesz, that we will not accept that any basic freedoms are restricted or rule of law is disregarded. This includes academic freedom and the autonomy of universities. The EPP wants the CEU to remain open, deadlines suspended and dialogue with the US to begin,” EPP President Joseph Daul’s official statement reads.
EVIL JEW GEORGE SOROS COMES UNDER FIRE IN HUNGARY
The evil billionaire Jew George Soros has come under fire in Hungary. Hungarians are accusing him of supporting the foreign invasion of Europe. He is also being criticized for his role in sovereign debt defaults.
Put it this way, Soros did not make his billions by building anything. He made it through manipulation and schemes in the financial markets. He has used his ill gotten wealth to cause all sorts of trouble around the world. The most recent being his financing of Black Lives Matter and the overthrow of Ukraine’s government.
This Jew is a traitor to humanity. He should be tried for crimes against humanity and then put to death.
Hedge fund mogul George Soros has come under fire in his native Hungary, where politicians have accused him of supporting illegal migration amidst a refugee crisis that’s brought the right-wing government under pressure.
Government representatives including Prime Minister Viktor Orban have slammed Soros in recent weeks for promoting liberal migrant policies and backing a variety of organizations through his pro-democracy charity that have criticized the way Orban’s government has dealt with the crisis.
In opinion pieces published by the Financial Times and Project Syndicate, Soros has said frontline states like Hungary were shirking their asylum obligations, and controversially suggested that a comprehensive European refugee plan should provide each asylum seeker with $16,800 annually for two years to help cover housing, health care and education costs.
“[Soros] keeps bombarding the international public with his earth-shattering plans, quite obviously, in the name of true selflessness which he has manifested in so many ways in the countries where his activities have resulted in sovereign default in the past 30 years,” Hungarian Minister János Lázár, who currently heads the Prime Minister’s Office, said at a press conference earlier this month.
