Billionaire meddler George Soros had a panic attack this past week, putting pen to paper to warn of a “USSR-like” collapse of the EU if political forces opposed to turning the EU into an actual USSR prevail in European Parliament elections set for May. Soros is furious that Brussels is not cracking down on recalcitrant states like Hungary and he fears that “anti-European” forces are set for big gains in the vote. What’s the problem? Writes Soros:
…the outdated party system that prevails in most European countries, the practical impossibility of treaty change, and the lack of legal tools for disciplining member states that violate the principles on which the European Union was founded. The EU can impose the acquis communautaire (the body of European Union law) on applicant countries, but lacks sufficient capacity to enforce member states’ compliance.
In other words, European countries dare to act like sovereign states rather than be subsumed completely into then non-elected bureaucracy that Soros has invested so heavily in.
Over at LifeSite News, Stephen Kokx offers a good write-up of Soros’ recent frustrations after his years of obsessive meddling in Europe and the US seem to be unraveling. I offered a few comments on Hungary and Soros which Stephen has used in a piece that I highly recommend to interested readers.11:40 am on February 16, 2019 Email Daniel McAdams
