UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) – It’s no secret that the “Soros network” has an extensive sphere of influence in the European Parliament and other EU institutions.
The list of Soros was recently announced. The document lists 226 members of the European Parliament on all sides of the political spectrum, including former President of the European Parliament Martin Schulz, former Prime Minister of Belgium Guy Verhofstadt, seven vice-presidents and several committee leaders.
These people propagandize Soros’s ideas: attracting more migrants, same-sex marriages, Ukraine’s integration into the EU, and opposition to Russia. In all, there are 751 deputies in the European Parliament. This means that Soros’s friends occupy more than a third of the seats.
George Soros, the Hungarian-American investor, founder and owner of the Open Society public organization, was able to meet with European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker and noted that the EU proposals on the redistribution of migrant quotas across the EU quite oddly resemble the Soros plan to fight the crisis.
A billionaire financier believes that the EU should accept millions of immigrants from the Middle East and North Africa, provide each of them with annual assistance of 15,000 euros and resettle these migrants to member states where they do not really want to resettle and where they are not expected.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban blamed the EU for “eating out” of Soros. He believes that behind the attacks on Hungary is a campaign to combat the open borders of the billionaire. The reason is the government’s attempts to take legal measures with respect to the new law, which requires from outside organizations a “civil society”, many of which are financed by Soros, to include their large foreign donors in the state register and to be transparent about the sources of their funding in their publications. The Government of Hungary is making efforts to close the founded Central European University in Budapest, founded by Soros.
“The whole EU is in trouble because its leaders and officials make such decisions, people support the ideals of the EU, but they do not stand the policy of the EU leadership because it offends member states with such things and abuses their power. This is why the European leadership does not receive recognition.”
The Visegrad group is trying to withstand the EU’s pressure on policies towards migrants. The European Commission on Migration and Internal Affairs is proposing a new bill to ensure that migrant quotas are mandatory. The commission has at least 30 supporters of Soros.
Many people listed in the document are known for their attacks on Russia. For example, Rebecca Harms, a deputy from the Green Party in Germany, regularly calls on the European Parliament to tighten the sanctions regime against Moscow. Guy Verhofstadt blames Russia for almost everything that goes wrong in Europe. His article “Putting Putin in his place,” published last year, caused a lot of noise. In 2012, the former Croatian politician Tonino Pitsula called the presidential elections in Russia in 2012 dishonest, saying that the result was fabricated in favor of Vladimir Putin.
The Soros list sheds light on the question of what compels the EU leadership to pursue a policy that is contrary to the interests of Europeans. The answer is: corruption. Politicians bought by Soros, dance to his tune. They are fighting against the attempts of national leaders to protect the interests of their peoples. Quite often, those who oppose this policy face resistance from the political elites of their countries.
The contradiction between Hungarian Prime Minister Orban and the Soros network is a good example for illustrating how this works. The European Parliament, under the influence of Soros’s friends, is pushing Europe to suicide, admitting millions of migrants.
This shows that the notorious European democracy is a facade behind which lies the activity of the power structure, similar to the feudal system. It is difficult to call the power of the people. The publication of the list of Soros gives the key to understanding who manages the EU and who fuels anti-Russian sentiments in Europe.
In fact, this is the case when EU member states, such as Hungary, are in the same boat with Russia as opposed to the same American forces while defending their sovereignty and independence. Europeans now have time to think about transforming the system to get rid of external pressure.
