A magyarok itthon boldogulnak – OeconoMaps

A magyarok itthon boldogulnak – OeconoMaps

Az ellenzék vinnyoghat: történelmi fordulat a magyar kivándorlásban, többen jöttek haza tavaly, mint ahányan elmentek.

A KSH adatai szerint a pozitív tendencia 2019-ben is folytatódott, a 21 900 kivándorló mellett 23 200-an tértek haza olyanok, akik korábban elmentek, vagyis régóta először volt pozitív az egyenleg. 2019-ben 21 900 magyar állampolgár vándorolt ki külföldre, ami majdnem kétezerrel kevesebb a 2018-as adatnál. Emellett 23 200 olyan Magyarországon született állampolgár vándorolt vissza, akik korábban elmentek – derül ki a KSH adataiból. Grafikon: https://mandiner.hu/attachment/0375/374771_bevandorlas.png

Jakub Marian ENSZ statisztikákon alapuló térképe szerint legnagyobb arányban a délkelet-európai országok állampolgárai hagyják el hazájukat. Bosznia és Hercegovina esetében legmagasabb a külföldön élők otthon maradókhoz képest mért aránya - ez az érték egészen elképesztő, 43,3 százalékos. A negatív dobogó második fokán Albánia áll, 38,8 százalékkal, míg a harmadik helyezett az Észak-Macedón köztársaság 24,8 százalékkal. A következő országok Portugália (22,3%), Montenegró (22,1%), Moldova (21,8%), Horvátország (20,4%), Litvánia (18,9%) és Írország (18,8%).

🇭🇺 Magyarország nemcsak a régióhoz, hanem az európai átlaghoz képest is kifejezetten jó mutatószámmal rendelkezik. A 6,0 százalékos elvándorlási arányunk körülbelül harmada a fent is említett 20,4 százalékos horvát vagy a 17,5 százalékos román értéknek, nagyjából fele a 13,0 százalékos ukrán, a 11,5 százalékos lengyel és a 10,9 százalékos szerb rátának, jóval alacsonyabb a 8,8 százalékos cseh mutatónál, de még a 6,8 százalékos szlovén, 6,7 százalékos osztrák és 6,3 százalékos szlovák arányszámnál is jobb.

A kedvező magyar mutató valószínűleg a sikeres hazai gazdaságpolitikai fordulatoknak, a gazdaság kiemelkedően gyors növekedésének, a hazai munkaerőpiac dinamikus bővülésének és a bérek ütemes emelkedésének köszönhető.
Jakub Marian másik térképéből azt is kiolvashatjuk, hogy a külföldön szerencsét próbáló magyarok elsődleges célpontja Németország, mely állam Európa egészét tekintve is a legnépszerűbb.

In the US, the left is also setting its own country on fire for power

In the US, the left is also setting its own country on fire for power

! ️The radical left is raging in the United States: violence broke out in the flames of Portland, Chicago and New York. Part of Minneapolis was virtually completely destroyed. (Videos)

The left is frightened by nothing when it comes to power: if they have no chance of winning in a democratic way, they bring out violence, harass social strata against each other, incite religious, racist and ethnic tensions, burn cities in the strictest sense of the word. Nothing is sacred to them, they need power and money - people’s lives are just a necessary loss in their plan. The article, the recordings and the video should be aimed primarily at those who break their heads like this: Hungary is a state governed by the rule of law, this will not be the case here. We protect Hungary at all costs.

In the wake of radical left-wing unrest and anti-police movements, the wave of violence sweeping across the U.S. is hitting the cities controlled by Democratic politicians the hardest. Yet left-wing mayors are unwilling to accept the help of federal law enforcement and are actively protesting against President Trump directing them to their city. And where federal policemen are present, Democrats are trying by all means to undermine their work. Snapshots from the Dili House: a detailed summary of the Center for Fundamental Rights.

Brutal child murder in the midst of a wave of violence, New York, USA, July 13, 2020
A one-year-old boy was shot dead in Brooklyn. They attended an outdoor roast with his family and friends when he opened two unknown fires at them. Davell Gardner was immediately taken to hospital by his uncle, but his life could not be saved. Three male members of the company were also shot, they survived. There were 49 shootings in New York in one week, an increase of 276% from last year’s average. Ten of the victims were children. But Blasio blames the gun possession while cutting the police budget by $ 1 billion by letting the Black Lives Matter movement.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the American Anthem is racist, July 14, 2020.
The paper published an article in which guest author Jody Rosen called for the national anthem to be replaced. In his article, he writes that the statue of the author of the "Star-Striped Flag" was monumental and ugly, so it's no problem that the vandals overthrew it, especially given that Francis Scott Key was a slave owner. Therefore, "The Star-Striped Flag" is not suitable for the national anthem, especially since the word "slave" appears in the text of the anthem. This is in the third verse, which is not sung, is fundamentally anti-British, and was probably used in an abstract sense by the author to describe Americans who clung to the crown during the War of Independence. Rosen believes the anthem as such is a horribly outdated and reactionary thing, and there is no need for it. But if you have to have one anyway, choose Bill Withers' "Lean on me." to symbolize the spirit of the American age, especially without mentioning America.

Another Fallen Anarchist Mini-State, Portland, Oregon, USA, July 16, 2020
Police liquidated a police-free zone called the Chinook Land Autonomous Territory, which was set up by protesters in a central park in Portland. The zone survived for 32 hours. Police closed the area around the park at 5 a.m. and then gave protesters 10 minutes to leave. Whoever did not do so was arrested.

Fear of anti-Semitic attacks, New York, USA, July 16, 2020
Ray Kelly, a former New York City police commissioner, described "American Jewry as having a difficult historical moment" and suggested that it would be worthwhile to raise security measures around synagogues in Europe. because he said the crackdown on police prestige and budget cuts will lead to American Jews being less secure.Kelly is currently leading the Anti-Semitism Accountability Project advocacy group.

Portland in Flames, Oregon, USA, July 19, 2020
Hundreds of protesters marched in Portland. Fences and barriers installed by police were damaged and an attempt was made to occupy the federal court building and then barricade the exits of the building to block the exit from the police station in the building. Police threw tear gas at them. At a nearby location, the detractors entered the building of the largest police union in Portland and set it on fire. Police quickly regained control of the building and managed to put out the fire.

The contradictions between the city and state authorities and the federal Department of Homeland Security are serious. The city’s Democratic mayor, Ted Wheeler, is insisting on the withdrawal of federal policemen. Meanwhile, the also-democratic state attorney general sued the federalists, saying they had illegally arrested protesters, who were then transported in unmarked vehicles. And the city fire chief forbade police to use fire department equipment.

Mayor of Chicago does not ask for help, Illinois, USA, July 20, 2020
Donald Trump is also planning to deploy U.S. federal law enforcement forces in Chicago, among others, because of the wave of violence there. The city’s Democratic mayor, Lori Lightfoot, said he would do anything to thwart Trump’s plans in this regard, and called the head of the city police union crazy, a coward suffering from conspicuous itching, who is of the opinion that Chicago should be eligible for federal assistance. The previous weekend, 54 people were shot and 7 died in Chicago.

Brutal attack on a judge and her family, New Jersey, USA, July 21, 2020
On an unknown bright day, she rang the house of a federal judge, Esther Salas, shot her son and seriously injured her husband. The FBI found the main suspect dead the next day. Roy Dan Hollander, who identified himself as a men’s lawyer, presumably committed suicide. The case includes the judge hearing a fraud case involving Jeffrey Epstein's name and the recent arrest of Epstein's accomplice, Ghislaine Maxwell. Epstein was remanded in custody on suspicion of pedophile prostitution. His acquaintances included celebrities such as Bill Clinton and the British Prince Andrew of York. Epstein committed suicide in his cell

He was indicted by the brave couple, St. Louis, Missouri, USA, on July 21, 2020.
Mark and Patricia McCloskey have been charged with illegal arms use. The couple, as they crawled the Internet, chased a Black Lives Matter parade from the garden of their house with a gun. The election campaign of the prosecuting prosecutor was supported by György Soros. The Republican governor of Missouri, on the other hand, has previously indicated that the McCloskey couple can count on the governor’s mercy. In principle, they can be sentenced to up to 4 years in prison.

Again brutal violence in Chicago, Illinois, USA, July 22, 2020.
A shooting broke out around a funeral home in Chicago. At least 15 people were injured when, around half past seven in the evening, unknown perpetrators opened fire on a car. The mourners then returned the fire before the car switched to a higher speed, but soon slipped off the road and smashed. The passengers in the car scattered. An eyewitness to the incident likened the scene to a war zone.

Experts have warned the Dutch government of the epidemic, yet they have done nothing

The numbers speak for themselves, we do not ask the Netherlands for advice

Experts have warned the Dutch government of the epidemic, yet they have done nothing

The most read Dutch-language Dutch newspaper, the NL Times, writes that Liberal governments led by Mark Rutte (Liberal People's Party, Momentum's siblings) have been warned three times in recent years to prepare for a possible epidemic in the Netherlands. referring to the experience of the 2014-2015 Ebola epidemic in West Africa. Despite all this, Rutte has done nothing to prepare, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Health are now trying to shift responsibility, and Rutte is not talking about the matter, instead undermining European solidarity by sabotaging crown bonds.

According to the NL Times, in 2018 the Dutch Ministry of Public Health, Welfare and Sport asked health consultant Ger Steenbergen, a professor at the University of Groningen, to write a study on how the Hague government could respond to pandemics, more specifically what the to mitigate the effects of the Dutch phases of pandemics.

The expert’s work was based in part on the experience of the 2014-2015 Ebola epidemic in West Africa.
Ger Steenbergen completed his study back in 2018, in which he concluded that information and experience were available in the Netherlands that would allow effective action in the event of a pandemic, but these are not used by the Hague government.
Later, seeing the inaction of the governing coalition of the liberal Mark Rutte (Liberal People's Party-VVD, a sister party of the Hungarian Momentum, a member of Renew Europe) in power since 2010, Steenbergen suggested to the head of the Ministry of Health that
at least at the international level, try to work with others if they are no longer in the Netherlands.
According to him, it would also have been necessary to create a comprehensive international epidemiological strategy.

Prior to that, back in 2016, a think tank called the Local Development Cooperation and Public Policy Inspectorate produced a report that also referred to experiences during the previous Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

According to the report,
the Dutch government is so unwilling to cooperate internationally in the field of health that it is already jeopardizing cooperation within the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO).
In the same year, the Dutch Institute of International Relations in Clingendael, based in The Hague, issued a communication on the shortcomings of the government's health policy, highlighting the need for more coherent international cooperation from the Rutte cabinet, especially on epidemics.
The Clingendael Institute also exemplified the Ebola epidemic, and it is no coincidence that there are a significant number of West African migrant communities in the Netherlands, although the vast majority are not from the "Golden Coast" area the epidemic is less affected (there are more than 400 000 Moroccan migrants in the Netherlands.)

According to health experts
despite all these steps, the liberal government did nothing. That is why the current coronavirus pandemic may have hit the country so unprepared.
The author of the 2018 study, Ger Steenbergen, gave an interview to the Dutch daily Trouw a few days ago, which was also covered by the NL Times.

The frustrated expert partly explained the inactivity he experienced as a personal failure by saying
at the level of the Dutch government, to put it mildly, dialogue between the various ministries is also inadequate.
According to its statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Public Health, Welfare and Sport view the international health situation and the resulting cooperation in a completely different way.

According to the Ministry of Health, this belongs to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, based on the opinion of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, but it is the competence of the Ministry of Health. Steenbergen did not ask whether one of the reasons for the lack of cooperation within the government could be that the two ministers were members of other parties, or simply that the liberal Mark Rutte had not learned to coordinate cabinet work.

According to experts,
the lack of international and intergovernmental cooperation and the ignorance of the cabinet can therefore be attributed to the severity of the epidemic in the Netherlands.
And Mark Rutte is trying to block cooperation not only in his own country and internationally, but even at the level of the European Union.
He was the one who vetoed the issuance of so-called "crown bonds" by the EU, which could have been a significant help to the southern Member States hardest hit by the pandemic.
The bond issue was mainly supported by Italy, Spain and Portugal.

This is how the "principle of European solidarity" that has been much voiced by liberals must be interpreted, because when it comes to being financially and not just at the level of press releases, liberals are vetoing everything.

On the margin of the Polish presidential election

Alarm clock, Hungarians!

On the margin of the Polish presidential election

Andrzej Duda won the presidential election in Poland. Congratulations Viktor Orbán, congratulations Péter Szijjártó, everyone is happy, we are too, but….

The figures show that the success of the Polish presidential election was a long way off. It is clear from the position of Gergely Karácsony on which side Trzaskowski is on the side, and from the position of Viktor Orbán it is who our ally is - Duda.

In Poland, roughly (exact data not yet provided by the Polish Electoral Commission!) There are 30.2 million eligible voters (including those living abroad) and the turnout was 68.12. From this, it can be estimated that roughly 20,572,240 voters went to the polls in Poland. Duda got 51.21 percent of the vote, which equates to 10,535,044 votes, and left-wing favorite Trzaskowski received 48.79 percent, which is 10,037,195.

The difference is only 497,849 votes, which is negligible in a country with nearly 38 million inhabitants, 1.3% of the population. If they stay home, Gregory Christmas is happy today, and we would be sad, and of course most Poles.

Everyone draws a lesson from this - in 2022, everyone has to go to the polls. TO EVERYONE because the left will be there.

Climate change: energy prices in the skies and the use of fossil fuels in Germany continue to rise

It’s the “green” policy that is actually fake green

Climate change: energy prices in the skies and the use of fossil fuels in Germany continue to rise

Although more and more studies and practical observations support the negative economic and environmental consequences of nuclear disarmament, a significant proportion of Green Parties are unable to get rid of their former most important identity-forming element: anti-nuclear. The example of Germany is a good illustration of the social burden that an alliance between emotionally overheated antinuclear movements and the fossil fuel lobby that uses them can result in. Petra Halkó, senior analyst at the end of the century, Olivér Hortay, head of the business at the end of the century, and Péter Kovács, a university student and trainee at the end of the century, wrote a study on this.

A XXI. one of the most important questions of the twentieth century is how humanity will be able to solve the problem of overuse of nature while preserving the economic and social achievements it has achieved since the Industrial Revolution. Tackling climate change is a priority, and the decarbonisation of the energy sector, which is responsible for the largest share of global emissions, plays a significant role in preventing it. The three objectives of energy policy - security of supply, the environment and economic performance - are often referred to as a trilemma, which illustrates that measures do not generally lead to a positive shift in all three objectives and that it is up to decision-makers to "navigate" between objectives.
Preventing climate change therefore requires interventions that improve the environmental performance of the energy sector while minimizing security of supply and economic growth.

A significant part of the energy policy interventions in most countries is aimed at modifying the energy mix, ie the fuels and technologies that the sector supplies energy needs. From an economic point of view, the most effective regulatory instruments are technology-neutral, ie they penalize the pollutants emitted and, in addition, leave the various production technologies to compete freely with each other. In contrast, more and more measures are appearing in international practice to penalize or reward certain technologies, contrary to economic rationality. The most striking example of these bad practices is the persecution of witches against nuclear technology, which has reached the level of policy intervention in some countries.

Germany is the most extreme against nuclear energy, which will dismantle its nuclear capabilities by 2022, despite the fact that most major international climate and energy organizations (IPCC, IAE, etc.) warn that without nuclear energy only at huge cost and reduced security of supply climate protection goals can be achieved. The increasing penetration of wind and solar power plants is an important and good trend, but due to their weather-dependent, precarious production and specific high land requirements, they cannot yet replace nuclear technology.
So if we want to tackle climate change in a few decades, there is no alternative to nuclear energy.

Historical background
In Germany, from the early 1960s to the late 1980s, energy market developments were similar to those in other developed countries. Economic prosperity and electrification have led to a significant increase in energy demand, for which nuclear technology has been an efficient and inexpensive solution, making nuclear reactors built during this period an important pillar of the electricity grid. The oil crises of the 1970s and the Three Mile Island accident also embedded anti-nuclear movements in German society (the formation of the German Greens, the world's oldest and Germany's largest green party, literally a new social movement), which targeted the growth of their narratives. and the campaign against newly established power plants that symbolize technology. And although these movements organized a number of local demonstrations against the reactors under construction in the early 1980s, no real results could be achieved.

The first real change was brought about by the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster, which caused the previously isolated, green subculture-specific antinuclear attitude to spread throughout German society. Nuclear power, previously supported by humans, has become a disaster and, following the last reactor to be built in 1989, no more investment could be made.
The Greens could not stop achieving their goal, as it would have questioned their raison d’être, so they turned their attention to the power plants already in operation. However, the shutdown of the operating reactors would have caused Germany economic damage that the Christian Democrats in power could no longer afford, so nuclear disarmament remained the flagship project of the anti-nuclear movements until the late 1990s.

The German Greens, who became a radical anti-nuclear party from the Green Movement, had a great opportunity in 1998. Social Democrat Gerhard Schröder could only seize power through a coalition, and the Greens promised to be good partners in many ways. On the one hand, Schröder, who has traditionally had good relations with companies, has been able to increase his popularity among left-wing voters by involving the anti-industrial Greens. On the other hand, the alliance lent a youth to Schröder, which in the campaign was well contrasted with the long-standing Christian Democrats. The calculation came in and winning the autumn elections, the Schröder-led Social Democratic-Green coalition could form a government. An agreement on energy policy was soon reached between the two parties. Nuclear decommissioning, important to the Greens, came to Schröder's work in preparation for a large-scale gas pipeline investment directly connecting Russia and Germany. In the years since coming to power, the coalition formally banned the construction of new nuclear power plants under a law passed by parliament in 2000 and planned a timetable for the decommissioning of existing plants, as well as a feasibility study for the Nord Stream gas pipeline and stakeholder approval. The start of decommissioning of nuclear power plants and the handover of the pipeline are also scheduled for 2011. Thus, a win-win situation emerged in the coalition: the Greens achieved their goal, creating a market for the influx of large amounts of natural gas, which legitimized Schröder’s important project. The story is further enhanced by the fact that the agreement to build the pipeline was signed a few days before the 2005 German elections, after which the losing Schröder moved from the chancellery directly to the chair of Nord Stream AG's owner and direct operator, Nord Stream AG.

Angela Merkel, a Christian Democrat who came to power in 2005, recognized that the decommissioning of nuclear power plants, which provided a quarter of German electricity generation, between 2011 and 2022 was economically irrational,
Thus, in 2009, it initiated an extension of the operating time for some reactors and changed the target date for decommissioning from 2022 to 2030. The change did not provoke strong public opposition, partly due to a temporary decline in anti-nuclear attitudes and partly due to fears of the consequences of the 2008 economic crisis. Eventually, however, Merkel's correction was swept away by the resurgence of negative public sentiment following the 2011 Fukushima nuclear accident: the nearly 250,000 people marching across the country across the country shortly decided to restore old decommissioning targets and shut down eight reactors immediately.

Consequences of nuclear disarmament
In Germany, 17 nuclear reactors were in operation in 2010, of which 8 were shut down in 2011, one each in 2015, 2017 and 2019, and the remaining 6 will be commissioned by 2022. The share of nuclear energy in German electricity generation has fallen from 25 percent in 2010 to well below 10 percent. Germany has replaced a significant part of the lost capacity with new, weather-dependent renewable investments. These technologies are less efficient, so even with declining energy consumption, more and more built-in capacity is needed to meet demand.

For the ever-increasing renewable capacity, Germany had to provide very significant investment and operating aid to producers.
In order to ensure that the change does not have dramatic consequences for the country's economic performance, it shifted the burden of subsidies to small consumers instead of large-scale industrial companies, so that the price of residential electricity in Germany is now significantly higher than the European average (more than three times Hungarian).
In addition, due to the higher operating costs of newly installed fossil power plants, wholesale electricity prices also increased slightly as a result of the switchover, which also had a negative impact on large consumers.

Another major challenge for nuclear decommissioning is the weather dependence of integrated renewables. Due to the limited storage of electricity and the low willingness of consumers to adapt to sunshine and wind, periods of overcapacity and high renewable capacity cannot be met in the German system. Germany addressed this problem in three ways: on the one hand, it increased its controllable fossil (coal and natural gas) power plant capacity; on the other hand, it increased its cross-border activity (partly through imports from France, a nuclear power, and the Czech Republic, which has a high fossil fuel share); thirdly, it has implemented large-scale network and market development projects at significant costs. New fossil power plants are not only a concern because of the greenhouse gas emissions that are responsible for climate change, but also because, especially in the case of coal-fired, they emit particulate matter, which demonstrably increases the risk of upper respiratory illness among local residents. The increase in cross-border activity during periods of low production, mainly due to French imports, not only provides a questionable source in the long run, also calls into question the meaning of the program.

Thus, based on the experience of recent years, nuclear disarmament has not led to a positive shift along any of the goals of the energy policy trilemma. The reform of the system has increased both residential and industrial energy prices, causing deepening economic problems for Germany (and indirectly for Europe). It is questionable how long this trend can be continued without major social conflicts, especially in the light of the economic difficulties caused by the coronavirus epidemic. From an environmental point of view, the only benefit is the reduction in nuclear waste, which, however, does not compensate for the increasing greenhouse gas and dust emissions from the fossil fuels put into operation. The latest study on the economic and environmental costs of German nuclear decommissioning was conducted by Professor Stephan Jarvis of the University of California, Berkeley, and co-authors, who estimate the measure will cost Germany more than $ 12 billion a year. Finally, the fact that people and companies have not yet had to face major security of supply problems in addition to fossil power plants is due to the fact that the variability of the German system can be offset by other European countries. However, as other European countries increase their weather-dependent renewables and reduce their controllable fossil capacities, so will their ability to balance.

Last week, the fight against certain technologies reached a new milestone in Germany: after a long debate, the Bundestag voted to shut down all coal-fired power plants by 2038. The package originally presented last year was strongly divided among MEPs. On the one hand, stopping coal burning is necessary to achieve climate goals and improve the health of the Germans. On the other hand, the industry, which has been artificially inflated as a result of nuclear decommissioning, currently employs nearly 30,000 people whose retraining should be solved. If Germany does not want to significantly increase its electricity imports, the conversion will require the construction of additional electricity generation capacity. And the new power plants will add new costs and, as regulated producers will continue to be needed in parallel with increasing renewable penetration, are expected to increase natural gas demand and thus Russian dependence. The credibility of the objective is undermined by the fact that the package will allow the new Datteln IV to enter this year. the commissioning of a coal-fired power plant unit, thus further increasing the share of fossil production in the German energy mix. In the future, Germany is expected to finance a significant part of the decommissioning costs from the newly created Brussels-based so-called Equitable Transition Fund, for which the European Commission will provide the necessary financial resources by redeploying cohesion funds from developing and less polluting countries, including Hungary.
With the maneuver, the German government would impose on developing countries the long-term, indirect costs of nuclear disarmament politically forced by the radical anti-nuclear lobby, which is seriously contrary to the core values ​​of the Union.

Lessons from the German atomstop
To date, almost every argument in favor of nuclear disarmament has been refuted. In people’s minds, perhaps the fear of nuclear disasters is still the strongest, as these tragedies threaten large numbers of people at one time and place. Statistics, on the other hand, show that nuclear production is the second safest technology after biofuels (0.005 dead for the former, 0.01 dead for the latter on average per terawatt hour), slightly ahead of solar, water and wind energy and significantly outpacing fossil technologies (e.g., coal combustion causes an average of 24.62 deaths per terawatt hour). The other argument often made that nuclear power plants hinder the decarbonisation needed to prevent climate change is also not true. Although the results of the research show significant variance, most researchers agree that the amount of greenhouse gas emissions over the entire life cycle of nuclear technology is on the order of magnitude of that of renewable producers (some say lower) and much lower than that of fossil technologies. The only issue that remains unresolved is nuclear waste management. The main problem here is that spent fuel needs to be stored for a long time. However, with today's technology, storage can be done at minimal cost, without health risks, so it does not justify strong social resentment.

The example of the German nuclear stop is a good example of how a left-wing anti-nuclear lobby, politically politely along the way and willing to bargain unprincipled for its purpose, can cause severe economic and environmental damage to an entire country in the long run and trap its adaptation to global warming. for greater challenges. Germany is in a very difficult situation because, although the arguments against nuclear technology have waned, the activities of radical movements have caused irreversible resentment in a significant part of the population, so it is no longer possible to back out of disarmament. At the same time, the country has to meet increasingly stringent climate protection requirements, which is incompatible with decommissioning fossil power plants. As a result of the problem, Germany is being forced to influence international action in a way that destroys not only its own credibility but also the unity of the European Union, and is also harmful to the environment. In the next EU budget cycle, the Equitable Transition Fund would divert resources from developing countries so that Germany, the second largest beneficiary, can cover the decommissioning costs of its coal-fired power plants. In addition, according to the EU's spring decision, investment funds labeled in principle with the so-called ESG label for sustainability do not have to consider natural gas as a fossil fuel source, so these funds can continue to finance coal-fired (and this year's North Stream 2) gas-fired power plants.

Surprisingly, the attitude towards nuclear energy still divides the Green Parties to this day. Some of them are still reluctant to acknowledge that anti-nuclear is both environmentally and economically irrational, because it would have to let go of its most important "cause", which would call into question the meaning of its existence. And those Green parties that are willing to correct and back down nuclear dismantling, they will have to find new things, because otherwise they will be lost in indifference, and since in the long run movements that are based on common sense can be successful, the latter strategy is likely to survive, and adapters will hopefully realize that it does not pay off in social or political terms.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan lies without batting an eye: VIDEO!

He is the role model of Gergely Karácsony, one of the main fighters of "liberal values"

London Mayor Sadiq Khan lies without batting an eye: VIDEO!

The beloved mayor of London was asked if he thought London had become a safer city since he was mayor. The question was supplemented with data from the London police, he was told specific numbers, yet Sadiq Khan bluntly said that yes - London he said had become safer.

In 2015, there were 21,361 robberies
By 2019, that number has risen to 35,216, which is 65%

There were 9,704 delays in 2015,
By 2019, this number has increased to 15003, which is 55%

In 2015, there were 1,804 armed crimes

Hungarian success! The VMSZ achieved a historic result in the Serbian elections!

Hungarian success!  The VMSZ achieved a historic result in the Serbian elections!

The Hungarian Association of Vojvodina (VMSZ) achieved a historic result in Sunday's elections in Serbia: it won more support than before in the parliamentary, Vojvodina and local elections, István Pásztor, the president of VMSZ, emphasized at a press release on Sunday evening.

The politician believed that the VMSZ was one of the winners of Sunday's election, as according to the available data, the party will have as many representatives in the republican parliament as it has not had in the last 27 years. "The last time the Hungarian community in Vojvodina had so many representatives was when the community had only one Hungarian party, the Democratic Community of Hungarians in Vojvodina, during the regime change in the early 1990s, when it was estimated that hundreds of thousands more Hungarians lived in Vojvodina than now. "the party chairman underlined.

According to the preliminary results, the largest Hungarian party in the south will have nine representatives in the Belgrade legislature instead of the previous four. According to István Pásztor, it is conceivable that in the light of the final results, the VMSZ will eventually have fewer mandates, but the results cannot change much. The largest Hungarian party in the South has so far had six members in the Vojvodina Provincial Parliament. According to preliminary results, fifteen politicians will be able to represent the party in the Novi Sad-based House of Representatives in the next four years, making the VMSZ the second political force after the Serbian Progressive Party.

According to the available data, the VMSZ won 13.6 percent of the vote in Vojvodina, which is close to the share of Hungarians in the only northern province of Serbia. Speaking about the results of the local government, István Pásztor emphasized that they are still very incomplete, but the preliminary data are encouraging in places important for Hungarians, in Magyarkanizsa, Zenta, Kishegyes, Topolya and Subotica. "The figures prove that the VMSZ has not received so many votes at the municipal level since time immemorial," said the president of the largest Hungarian party in the south.

The VMSZ estimates that 70,000 votes were cast for the party on Sunday. According to the 2011 census, about 250,000 Hungarians live in Vojvodina. "This result is historical, because we have proved that the statement that the wheel of history cannot be reversed is not true. It can be said with some exaggeration that the VMSZ has reversed the wheel of time and was able to turn it from a continuous downward path," said István Pásztor. He thanked the voters for their continued encouragement and support, and thanked all those who returned home from abroad to support the VMSZ. “We can’t thank you enough and enough times for that,” he underlined. “This gives a special meaning to what we have done so far and we will do in the future to be able to deliver on the commitment we made in the election program,” he stressed. He said: "We believe that here, in our homeland, it is possible to live as a Hungarian worthy of a human being, and we believe that it will be worthwhile to come home here." He emphasized that there is no alternative to the national policy represented by the VMSZ, "the support of the VMSZ is also the support of the national policy". István Pásztor pointed out that the Hungarians of Vojvodina once again appreciated and acknowledged the cooperation, "they told us this is what we expect from you and punished those who did not understand their message again".

The president of the largest Hungarian party in the south called on everyone to join the VMSZ, because "we can only implement the commitments if we are united, if we unite". During the campaign, the VMSZ set the goal of maintaining or increasing the number of its seats, ie to get at least five members of the Belgrade legislature instead of the previous four, so that instead of the previous six, they would have seven members in the Vojvodina Provincial Parliament, and in addition to the Hungarian-led Zenta, Topolya and Magyarkanizsa, Subotica and Kishegyes will also have Hungarian mayors for the next four years. The Serbian Progressive Party will have a two-thirds majority. Citizens reassured the Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) of unprecedented support, no one expected such a victory, said Head of State Aleksandar Vucic, President of the Serbian Progressive Party, on Sunday night in the light of the preliminary unofficial results of the Serbian elections. well over two-thirds of parliamentary seats. “We have won everywhere, where we have lost, where we have always lost before, and in all the foreign polling stations,” the SNS president said.

According to data from the Serbian Progressive Party, 3.3 million of the just over 6.5 million voters cast their ballots on one of the 21 election lists on Sunday, of which more than 2 million votes were won by the SNS. According to opinion polling agencies, in the 250-member Belgrade legislature, the Serbian Progressive Party won about 180 seats, while for a two-thirds majority, 167 seats would have been enough. According to the Center for Free Elections and Democracy (CeSID) and the Ipsos pollster, the SNS will have even more 189 seats, three times more than all other parliamentary parties combined. Nevertheless, Vucic pointed out in his speech that his party is still preparing for coalition governance. For the party, the last two elections also brought an overwhelming triumph: the SNS won two-thirds in 2014 and an absolute majority in parliament in 2016. In second place, as in the previous two elections, the Serbian Socialist Party finished and has 32 seats. According to unofficial data provided by the CeSID and Ipsos sampling survey, after 80.8 percent processing, the list of Olympic silver and bronze medal water polo players Aleksandar Sapic (12 seats), but also the Serbian Radical Party, could enter the parliament. neither the opposition list called Broom 2020 nor the Free Citizens Movement reached the 3 percent parliamentary entry threshold. In addition, lists of the Hungarian, Albanian and Bosnian minorities will be included in the parliament. According to CeSID and Ipsos, 9 members of the Hungarian Association of Vojvodina can enter the parliament instead of the current 4. - from the Maszol.ro portal

The fall of Swedish liberalism in epidemic management

The fall of Swedish liberalism in epidemic management

The graph shows the number of daily illnesses in Hungary and Sweden to date. The graph shows the reality very spectacularly, but it is also sad when we focus on the Swedish numbers.
If we consider all confirmed infected people, 4039 people were infected in Hungary, 48288 in Sweden, while the number of deaths in our country was 553, in our country almost 5000. The populations of Sweden and Hungary differ by 5%, so it is not worth proportioning e.g. million.

The Swedes did not expect human life, they focused on economic protection, which was not possible based on the -7% forecast. However, while we have 7 hospital beds per 1,000 people, only 2 in Sweden. It shows that achieving herd immunity, in addition to being an impossible undertaking, was even irresponsible. Do not try to treat an acute illness at home anyway! Swedish health care preference for home care has failed.

Left-liberal Prime Minister Stefan Löfven said: “we who are adults must also treat the situation as adults, so we must not panic” and “we cannot ban everything by law, that is not our way”. Translating the above into Hungarian: "No one should tell us, and on an individual level, what I can and can't do, because I am progressive and liberal."

In Sweden, only events larger than 50 people were banned, but sports facilities, entertainment venues and primary schools could remain open. Moreover, no mandatory quarantine was prescribed for those who were confirmed to be infected with the coronavirus and who had been identified as asymptomatic carriers. Translated into Hungarian: the number of contacts was not reduced sufficiently, the defense was downplayed.

Swedish life seems to matter, only black. Yet every life is worth the same.
We have remained conservative even now, that is, we have followed rules and taken steps (in time) that have been proven to be right, given the examples of other countries. Our steps were preceded by epidemiological analyzes. We were prepared for the worst, but we hoped for the best.

In 20 years, the number of rapes in "democratic" Sweden has quadrupled

In 20 years, the number of rapes in "democratic" Sweden has quadrupled

We looked at the data on the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention page and found a table of crimes committed between 1950-2018. The numbers in it are scary - the number of all types of crime is steadily rising, especially over the last 20 years.

The number of rapes has quadrupled in 20 years. Looking at the total population, the figure below shows that there are roughly 20 reported (!) Rapes per day in Sweden. And how much is not reported ....

And the data for 2019 deserve special mention.

10,455 molestations
8 818 sexual violence against children (under 18)
Of these, 2,441 cases involved victims under the age of 15
In 4,776 cases, the victim was a woman over 18 years of age.

The left-liberal mock media, of course, sees the connections not in the intensification of migratory pressures, but in the emergence of dating applications. Here we note that the first iPhone (and apps as such) was born in 2008. Before that, how would they explain the growing trend?

We Hungarians do not need such a liberal democracy. We will keep this kind of "democracy" away from our country.
