#Hungary , Loudly Opposed to Immigration, Opens Doors to More Foreign Workers. Premier Viktor #Orban government recently began expediting work permits amid strong growth, declining population and rising wages. My report via ⁦@WSJwsj.com/articles/hunga…
Hungarian re­cruiters now have to compete with countries like Germany for workers and of­fer free ac­com­mo­da­tion and sub­si­dized meals for immigrant labourers, as well as pro­vide in­ter­preters and re­turn trips to their home coun­tries. @WSJ wsj.com/articles/hunga…
Meanwhile, Germany still hasn’t approved a proper legal framework for labour immigration. Some recruiters say the Hungarian system for attracting skilled and semi-skilled migrant workers is better and more efficient. @WSJ wsj.com/articles/hunga…

Excellent points, Kellyanne. These are dark days for America. Trying to take guns away from innocent citizens is not the answer. Perhaps mental health is not, either. This “kid” who got an AK-47 with a 7.62 caliber was either combat trained or a hired professional.

3/ A pic of #Soros goes with the subject of #Antifa & #ElPasoTerrorist it’s because he directly funds #BLM #Antifa #TheCaravans through his affiliations with CARA (Pueblo Sin Fronteras in Chgo, run by Roberto Corona), La Familia Latina Unida (the parent company founded in 2001 by

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.

1. Toxic masculinity killed 25 people
2. State negligence and refusal to invest in the train system continues to kill #Egyptians
Clearly, the long-running neglect by successive #Egyptian regimes of the rail network has claimed too many lives. And re yesterday’s tragedy, the long-running refusal to confront patriarchy & toxic masculinity - on state and street level - will also continue to claim lives.
A fight between 2 men killed 25 people. When I write or talk about feminism and the need to dismantle patriarchy, I hear “This isn’t the time!” When is the time? Men who benefit from patriarchy don’t care about its toll on others. It took a toll on 25 people yesterday. #Egypt

Very big news for EU refugee policy. #Italy hardliner #Salvini backs relocation - breaking from Orbán’s #Hungary push-back policy. But what does it mean? #SeaWatch3 Thread 1/18
Salvini - Dep PM & Interior Min - claimed in Jun ‘18 that Italy’s ports are “closed” to rescued people. He even turned away Italian coastguard boat “Diciotti”. 2/
And last week Salvini blocked #SeaWatch3 from embarking the people rescued from shipwreck. They applied straight to the European Court of Human Rights and... Salvini & EU states found a solution. 3/

I want to turn your attention to the #Balkans.

Tens of thousands are protesting in #Serbia for the fifth week in a row. Despite the snow and cold weather, despite the censorship in the country, the people want their voice to be heard. I hope the world takes a good look.
Publicly owned communications giant Telekom bought a private cable network Kopernikus (owned by a brother of a high ranking ruling party official) for €200m.

Money was then used to finance the acquisitin of the remaining two foreign owned TV stations with national frequency.
The reasons for the protest:

-wide scale censorship and media control
-beating of @BorkoStef, one of the opposition leaders with metal rods
-eroding democracy and freedom of elections
-shady negotiations with #Kosovo behind closed doors
-corruption

🔴 As we mark #HumanRightsDay, a devastating new @EURightsAgency Report on #Antisemitism in #Europe underscores how alarming situation has become.

You can read full report, most extensive in years, here: bit.ly/2Qovhjh

But thread below on some of these jarring figures:
@EURightsAgency @TimmermansEU @VeraJourova @kschnurbein @EUinIsrael @EGiaufretEU @IsraelinEU ➡️ 90% of Jews feel #Antisemitism has increased over past 5 years.

➡️ 89% of Jews think Antisemitism is most problematic on the internet & on social media.

➡️ 71% avoid Jewish symbols (e.g., kippah, Star of David, etc) in public things that could identify them as Jewish.

1/
@EURightsAgency @TimmermansEU @VeraJourova @kschnurbein @EUinIsrael @EGiaufretEU @IsraelinEU ➡️ 85% of Jews consider #Antisemitism to be the biggest social or political problem in their home country;

➡️ 28% of respondents have been harassed at least once in the past year, with those being visibly Jewish most effected;

Nov. 11 1918: The last Austro-Hungarian Emperor Charles I signs a proclamation in which he "relinquish(ed) every participation in the administration of the State" marking the end of the 600-year rule of the Habsburgs over #Austria. #TodayInHistory #ArmisticeDay100 #Armistice100
On 13 November, Charles IV issued a similar (Eckartsau) proclamation for #Hungary. In neither declaration did the emperor use the word 'abdication'. Indeed, he tried to reclaim the Hungarian throne twice in 1921. "I did not abdicate, and never will," he wrote to a confidant.
Altogether the losses of Austria-Hungary during #WW1 can be estimated at around 2 million (excluding direct civilian war deaths). #ArmisticeDay100 #ArmisticeDay

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

Today we release our annual @wiiw_news Autumn #Forecast Report, with macroeconomic projections for #CESEE out to 2020. Below, a thread on the highlights 1/13
#Growth still looks quite good for most, notable upgrades this time for #Poland, #Serbia, #Hungary. But downgrades for several #EU members, plus #Turkey, #Macedonia and #Belarus. 2/13
Over the #forecast period we expect best growth performance in #EUCEE and #WesternBalkans, although both will slow by 2020. Outlook for #CIS & #Ukraine weaker. 3/13

So.. In 2018 at Budapest Airport, it is apparently okay to provide a #dysfunctional service where your customers get #overcharged, while not replying to their complaints. For a year. Am I right, @WizzAir? Cc: @budairport #YearLongComplaint * thread *
My brother lives some countries and an ocean away, so we bought #WizzAirCoupons for our mother as a present. She wanted to visit him, but the site failed to give her the discount. The coupon can no longer be used, so she wrote you an email. This was on the 1st of November, 2017.
She got the first - and to this day, the only - reply at the end of that same month. My mother asked a few questions to which no answer was ever received. #TerriblePenPal

#Hungary’s filed its doomed claim that 2/3rds of MEPs actually voting doesn’t meet requirement of votes cast.
To condemn a Member State for endangering democratic values, EU Parliament motion needs support of a majority of *all* MEPs, and 2/3rds of those actually voting. >
Hungary’s case is first time CJEU has to interpret law on art 7 TEU procedure. There’s a special article - TFEU 269 - for this. >

@CapitalJon @PaulGambles2 @AlastairWinter @Halsrethink @dlacalle_IA @OBrienSheehan @chloechotv 1. #EU-#Europe before 2000 was OK: Open borders within #EU for EU-citizens, people can live & work (and study) in all EU states (so take great care who joins - went too fast too far East). The seed of destruction came with the #EURO.
@CapitalJon @PaulGambles2 @AlastairWinter @Halsrethink @dlacalle_IA @OBrienSheehan @chloechotv 2. More centralization & #Merkel's #RefugeesWelcome (with the will to enforce mass-#migration on other #EU states) introduce more toxic cancer cells into the #EU!
A common budget (#Macron) & an #EU-army would be the end of true #democracy & #freedom within #Europe!
@CapitalJon @PaulGambles2 @AlastairWinter @Halsrethink @dlacalle_IA @OBrienSheehan @chloechotv 3. The next step would be the likes of #Merkel, #Macron & #Juncker enforcing their will by first witholding money & next send the #EU-army to topple the likes of #Orban in #Hungary.
