USA Imposed Sanctions on Magyar Officials

00 The Truth About Hungary! 19.10.14

Igazságot Magyarországnak! The Truth about Hungary! If you want to know that, the last people to attend to are American “conservatives”… they want to smash their heel into the faces of the Magyars without mercy for daring to tax American greedsters… oh, the humanity!

Oh, yes… the Magyars HAVEN’T forgotten Trianon… that is why they claim Podkarpatskaya, after all. The Ukie nationalists HAVE forgotten that, haven’t they?

______________________________

The Magyar government expressed perplexity at an American decision to impose sanctions on a number of Magyar politicians. André Goodfriend, US chargé d’affaires in Hungary, said on-air on TV that Washington imposed restrictions on the admission of a number of Magyar officials, without explaining exactly who was on the “Goodfriend List”. Magyar newspaper Napi Gazdaság reported that the sanctions were against members of the inner circle of Magyar Minister-President Viktor Orbán. In this case, the newspaper reported that the ban on entry into the USA might be because Magyar tax authorities recently announced that several American companies operating in Hungary are suspects in tax evasion cases. Other sources, such as Voice of Hungary-Hungarian News, hypothesised that Washington imposed sanctions against Magyar politicians as the Magyar government only reluctantly supported American-imposed sanctions against Russia. The Americans alleged that they imposed sanctions against Hungary due to “extortion” from the Magyar side. That is, Washington considers that a government trying to get American companies to pay the fair amount of taxes due them is extortion? Hungary should realise that Goodfriend isn’t a “Good Friend”…

Military Review

Editor:

In July 2014, Orbán said, “The wind is blowing from the east”, in presenting the Russian anti-liberal state as a positive alternative to the “declining” Western liberal state. Of course, this is “liberal” in the European sense, which means “conservative” in the Anglosphere sense. As a group, American “conservatives” are so ignorant and stupid that they don’t see this. Liberalism in European terms means privatisation, no government regulation, and “economic freedom”… that is, Free Market buccaneers such as Willy Romney, the Waltons (of Wal-Mart), and the Koch Brothers get a full reign. Liberalism is the heart of the Republican Party and the Tea Party. The US Republican Party stands against Tradition, Legitimacy, and Patriotism… as shown by Willy Romney sending American jobs to China in the midst of the 2012 election campaign.

There is no such thing as Conservatism in the USA… there are NO American analogues of Franco, Bismarck, Stolypin, or even Diefenbaker. All Americans who call themselves “conservatives” are ignorant Yahoos who push for Know Nothing policies and empowerment of the Affluent Effluent, the very antithesis of Classical Conservatism (Burke would reject the GOP as a band of mercenary and greedy merchants). The “foot soldiers” of American “conservatism” are Evangelical sectarians (and those Catholics and Orthodox konvertsy who ape their boorish and cretinish ways)… whose Radical Sectarianism is the farthest thing from Conservatism that there is.

The American “conservatives” want to punish Hungary for turning away from Liberalism… for if Hungary does that, it means that Hungary intends to make American corporations dance to their tune and operate according to national interests. Note well that the USA won’t abide that. The fact that Hungary doesn’t support sanctions and is favourable to Russian POVs is secondary. For the USA, the main fact is that a country dared to put restrictions on American greedsters… that enrages the Republicans. That’s why their evil ideology won’t last (in historical terms).

Watch the Magyars… they just might abandon sanctions. They DO have an independent and stubborn streak… those Hunkies DO like going their own way…

Greek Newspaper “Ethnos” Accused Church of Greece Higher-Ups of Tax Evasion

______________________________

On Monday, the newspaper Ethnos reported that the Greek Ministry of Finance Economic Crimes Department is probing the bank accounts of two top officials of the Church of Greece in a tax evasion investigation. Ethnos alleged that the Greek financial authorities discovered that Metropolitan Kyrillos Chrystakis of Thessaliotida, Fanari, and Pharsalos had “dozens of millions” of Euros in his bank accounts. The money, which came from donations, property rents, and investment, was also in accounts of their relatives, which are also being investigated. Ethnos claimed that officials said that they have a list of dozens of church officials and priests who have more than 100,000 Euros (4.025 million Roubles. 130,000 USD. 81,000 UK Pounds) in their bank accounts in Greece and abroad.

The Church of Greece claimed that the reports were possibly a part of a “deliberate” media smear campaign and urged avoiding making conclusions whilst an investigation is still underway. Spokesmen for the Church of Greece leadership told the Romfea.gr religious news agency that the media information campaign could be in “pursuit of certain goals”. The Church said the matter would be brought before the Holy Synod only after the results of an investigation are announced.

8 October 2012. A Point to Ponder… Good Ol’ Cicero Describes Wee Willy Romney to a Tee

Here’s Wee Willy’s attitude to the rest of us… after all, taxes are for us “little people” to pay… he’ll keep his money hidden from Uncle Sugar in the Cayman Islands, thank you very much (yet, he wants to run the government, fancy that).

_____________________________

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious, but it can’t survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he’s known and carries his banner openly. However, the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustle through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor, he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.

Marcus Tullius Cicero

******

Willy is a traitor. He refused to serve in the forces in time of war, even though he was both physically and mentally fit for military duty in the war zone. He had his gazillionaire daddy buy him a bogus “clergy deferment”… whilst other poorer men went to the front (and some died). He hides his money in overseas tax shelters; he has no qualms over the fact that such financial chicanery increases our tax burden. Apparently, Willy agrees with Leona Helmsley, “Only the little people pay taxes”. He’s not even ashamed that his federal tax burden is far lighter than that of many who have only one percent of his income. He has the unmitigated and brazen gall to attack President Putin, but I’ll say that Vova has the decency to keep his family and his religious faith out of the public spotlight (he considers the airing of such a “political striptease”)… Wee Willy doesn’t… that should tell you something, too.

In short, the above proves that he isn’t a patriot at all; he’s a self-centred and selfish traitor. Yet, he has the goddamned gall to run for President of the USA. “Nice” is NOT “good”… we forget that at our peril. Besides that, don’t fail to recall that “legal” isn’t synonymous with “moral”… I think that’s an important distinction for us to bear in mind, too. Willy loves his money more than he loves his country… that’s why he’s the most dangerous form of traitor. Mammon worship is treason, in spades (look what it did to Willy… he hid his money abroad, but he wants to spend it here without paying tax on it like everyone else does). Deus videte et iudicare (Let God see and judge)…

Woe to those who call good “evil” and evil “good”…

Zyuganov Pledges Pardon for Khodorkovsky If Elected President… Pledges New Gosduma Elections If He Wins Presidential Election

Gennady Zyuganov (1944- ), Head of the KPRF Faction in the RF Gosduma and Chairman of the KPRF

______________________________

On Wednesday, Gennady Zyuganov, the Chairman of the KPRF, said that he’d pardon former Yukos head Mikhail Khodorkovsky if elected president. Khodorkovsky, once seen as a potential threat to Putin, has been in jail on charges of fraud and tax evasion since 2003. His eight-year jail term has received a five-year extension, and he’s currently due for release in 2016. Zyuganov told reporters, “I think we should show humanity and mercy. Khodorkovsky has already served quite a long term”. He said that we should review the results of the “illegal and criminal” privatisation of the 1990s and that we should punish those found guilty of economic crimes in accordance with the term served by Khodorkovsky. “We’ve uncovered about 50,000 crimes. By considering all those cases we would be able to make a decision, by which everyone would get what they deserve with a reference to the term served by Khodorkovsky,” Zyuganov said.

Zyuganov, who’ll announce his campaign platform on Saturday, also said that he’d amend the constitution to permit only two five-year presidential terms. Andrei Klychkov, a senior KPRF official, said that the Communists have prepared an extensive reform of Russia’s political system, including limiting presidential powers, reinstating direct elections for governor, increasing the presidential campaign period, and making political debates obligatory for all candidates.

******

KPRF Chairman Gennady Zyuganov promised to re-run this month’s disputed parliamentary elections if elected president. On Saturday, Zyuganov told supporters, after winning formal nomination to run for president in next March’s election, “If the KPRF wins the presidential election, we guarantee that we’ll hold early new elections to the RF Gosduma in December 2012”. Vladimir Zhirinovsky, the leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR), and tycoon Mikhail Prokhorov are also standing for election in the March poll, as is Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. Other candidacies include Dmitri Mezentsev, governor of eastern Siberia’s Irkutsk Oblast, and radical opposition figure Eduard Limonov.

Zyuganov described the 4 December election as the “dirtiest” since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. The election saw Putin’s ruling United Russia Party just maintain its parliamentary majority amid widespread allegations of fraud and coercion of voters. Observers from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe said the vote was “slanted in favour of the ruling party”. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the election was neither free nor fair {like the “free” elections amongst the Good Ol’ Boy cronies in Arkansas, Hill? What about “Landslide Lyndon?”: editor}, and the European Parliament called for a re-run. During a visit to Brussels on Thursday, President Dmitri Medvedev maintained the election was fair and said the European Parliament had “nothing to do” with it. Speaking during a KPRF Congress in Moscow, Zyuganov also invited Putin to a televised election debate.

Editor’s Note:

It’s interesting to note the two-pronged nature of Zyuganov’s proposal… yes, we should spring Khodorkovsky from the slam (for he’s “done his time”), but all the other oligarchs deserve eight-year sentences in the hoosegow for their economic crimes. If the commies were to win, they’d free Khodorkovsky, but they’d also stuff him on the first jet to the West, wash their hands of him, and say, “Good riddance to bad rubbish”. Khodorkovsky’s salted away some of his ill-gotten gains in Swiss bank accounts… he won’t starve. In any case, the Western media, governments, and élite will kiss Khodorkovsky’s naked arse in public. That’s what they do with all the rich, don’t they?

Now if we were to take Zyuganov’s suggestion and apply to our own banksters, corrupt pols, corporate thieves, and media shills, we’d have to round up Mitt Romney, Rush Limbaugh, Rick Santorum, Herman Cain (remember Herman?), Sarah Palin, and John Huntsman and slap prison orange on the lot of ‘em… we’d have to release all the honest crack dealers to find room for all the McMansion dwellers, wouldn’t we? It ain’t gonna happen… in the West, at present, “money talks and bullshit walks”… and it carries a loudhailer made in China, dontcha know…
