Hungary shuts up press freedom

A new media law, valid from 01.01.2011, gives the National Media and Information Communications Authority of Hungary (NMHH) the possibility to control not only government but also private media and the Internet.

Control means that penalties are to be imposed if the reporting is not in the public interest or meets not public morality. At the level of penalties, the organization has broad discretion, they say. What is defined as general interest remains unclear. Also all public radio and TV broadcasters are to be merged, any journalist will then work for the same agency.

The top positions in the newly formed holding company will be almost all gone to the people of the ruling Fidesz party..

"The rotating chairmanship of the European Union, which Hungary assumes on Jan. 1, will not represent the culmination of a successful story. In fact, the opposite could be the case. Because of its policies, Budapest could now "be in for some serious problems," Martin Schulz, the parliamentary leader of the Social Democrats in the European Parliament said last Tuesday. Luxembourg Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn went a step further, accusing the Hungarian government of violating "the spirit and text of the EU treaties." "The question arises," he continued, "as to whether such a country deserves to lead the EU. If we don't do anything, it will be very difficult to talk to China or Iran about human rights."
A great deal of anger has been building up. The fact that Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has just cold-bloodedly pushed through a law that muzzles the press, only a few days before he steps onto the pan-European stage, is just the final straw. It has been a last, and possibly decisive step towards autocracy.

No other European politician will have as much power to implement such drastic measures against critical media as Orbán, whose right-wing populist Fidesz Party has a two-thirds majority in parliament. The new, 170-page law attempts to regulate all television and radio stations, newspapers and Internet sites. It even applies to blogs and foreign media available in Hungary.

At the center of the control mechanisms is a new government agency staffed exclusively with Fidesz members. It has the power to impose fines of up to €750,000 ($983,000) for articles with objectionable content -- and it alone will decide what is deemed objectionable. The staff of public media organizations will be placed under government supervision.

Outraged opposition politicians demanded to know how this differs from censorship in the days of former Communist Party General Secretary János Kádár, and demonstratively taped their mouths shut in parliament. Some Hungarian newspapers have published empty front pages in protest at the law." Link

Now the law had to be signed by the Hungarian President Schmidt Pál at the beginning of this week. News from today morning, Thursday(!):
"Although the expiration of the deadline for publication of media law adopted last Tuesday, regarding the president's decision there is still no news. Offices inquired in vain, I got the answer to watch the Hungarian Official Bulletin...

President Schmidt Pál is likely to have already signed the legislation. This confirms previous activities as well. On his blog he wrote about Turkish politilógus Gabor, who has started his arguments, the constitutional veto number: zero. Political veto number: zero. Pal Schmitt has adopted since taking office nearly one hundred laws, at neither he felt it important to make use of any of the constitutional option. The political scientist remarked that the president signed everything for the time being, we have presented, and in this respect, the sample is created as a new head of state..."LINK
Hungary used Wikileaks as an
argument for its new press law. László Kövér (Fidesz), theHungarian Parliament'sPresident, described the Internet asa platform of "informationterrorism" and
finds it "necessary to find a way to prevent such cases in the future. "Link

an almost terror attack in Copenhagen


The Danish Security and Intelligence Service (PET) said Wednesday that the PET and the Swedish Security Service (SAPO) have jointly arrested five individuals suspected of plotting a terror attack in Copenhagen. The PET believed that the suspects were preparing a terror attack on the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten in Copenhagen...."With these arrests we have succeeded in repelling an imminent terror attack," PET Director General Jakob Scharf said in a statement.He said several of the suspects "must be considered militant Islamists with relations to international terror networks." LINK Jylands-Posten published the Mohammed cartoons back in 2005, an act which apparently has marked them as an "enemy of Allah" for all eternity. read also:

Swiss police said on Thursday a suspect package had been sent to the European Union embassy in Berne.

Is the topic organ deals of Kosovo getting too hot for some men in high places? New headlines needed for Christmas?

"Swiss police said on Thursday a suspect package had been sent to the European Union embassy in Berne. Parts of the building have been cleared and the package was being investigated, a spokeswoman for Berne police said.

Police in Rome were checking embassies on Thursday after two people were injured in separate explosions at the Swiss and Chilean missions". LINK

The attack on the Swiss building was ‘a deplorable act of violence that deserves our strongest condemnation’, said Italian foreign minister Franco Frattini. Rome mayor Gianni Alemanno added: ‘It’s a wave of terrorism against the embassies.’...‘We still need to understand the nature of these episodes – all the embassies have been alerted.’ Link

"While no group has been identified, there is speculation it could be the work of anarchists angry at the jailing of supporters in Switzerland." Link

"Europe was already on edge after the arrest of a dozen terrorism suspects in Britain on Monday. The region has also been racked in recent months by street protests over stiff austerity measures and continued economic hard times." Link

"Late Thursday night, the Italian news agency ANSA reported that a claim by anarchists was found in a small box near one of the wounded employees, and was being examined by anti-terrorism police squad. Anti-terrorism police at Rome police headquarters refused to comment on the claim, which ANSA said was made by a group called the Informal Anarchist Federation, or FAI. "Long live FAI, long live anarchy," the claim reportedly said. Anarchists were blamed by authorities last week for bloody clashes between protesters and police in Rome that marred otherwise peaceful demonstrations by students against a university reform law. The legislation received final approval in parliament Thursday.

For Thursday's twin embassy mail bombs, less than three hours apart, Italian investigators are pursuing the "trail of anarchists-insurrectionists," Interior Minister Roberto Maroni, whose ministry includes anti-terrorist police, told reporters. "Various elements lead us to think that this is the correct path."

"These are very violent groups that are also present in Spain and Greece and are very well connected," the minister said.

In Athens, Greek law enforcement officials said that Greek anti-terror police were contacted in the evening by Italian colleagues but that no link with the Greek parcel bombs was immediately apparent." Link

Nazi practices in Kosovo

José Manuel Ponte (google translated)

"New evidence on the selective fascism (secret prisons, mass media lies, political corruption, financial dictatorship etc) that is slowly infecting society. In a report recently approved by the Council of Europe provide credible evidence about the sinister organ trafficking in Kosovo carried out by members of the guerrilla albanokosowar currently in power with the backing of NATO and the United States. According to the account of the report's author, a former Swiss judge, the Serb prisoners were held on farms and relatively well cared for and fed for a while. Then, once the mandatory medical tests for compatibility, they moved to a secret location inside Albania and there were killed to extract their organs and sell them to private clinics abroad.
The description of these horrors seems typical of an episode of repression Nazi doctor Mengele as the main character, but just happened in the heart of Europe and has been disseminated by the press as if it were one of those gruesomeness we accustomed to reading in the pages of events. Recently, also I knew of a medical society that condemns South Africa for trading in organs bought in South America to be transplanted into patients with Israeli citizenship, but the news did not cause more commotion. Perhaps because the levels of social sensitivity in the same increase as the level of terror grows, and it looks better and more convenient to look for another party, or bury our heads in the sand like an ostrich.
Of course, the authorities in Kosovo (territory recognized as independent nation by many NATO countries, except Spain), have denied the facts, and the United States, which is where one of its largest military bases, called for more srong tests. The artificial creation of Kosovo (historically a province of Serbia) as an independent nation is one of the most shameful episodes in modern diplomacy and the final shot of the bloody destruction of the Yugoslav Federation. A perfectly planned operation before the start of the illegal NATO bombing (which was then head of our illustrious compatriot and regular holidaymaker in Bueu, Javier Solana) and served on a platter to the United States to install the base at Camp Bondsteel. A strategic location for the defense of the network of pipelines that carry oil from the Caspian Sea, in addition to other power brokers. The construction of this base, which began under President Clinton, was concluded with Bush as proof that the interests of the Empire are always the same.
According to the most serious, Kosovo is currently a territory run by mafias involved, among other lucrative activities, drug trafficking and prostitution networks. In fact, it has never ceased to be so since the beginning of the war against Serbia. Despite the intense propaganda campaign to present them as "freedom fighters" (that pompous name under which Reagan baptized mafia gangs at your service) the leaders of the UCK, the Albanian guerrillas, were always linked to dirty business .
We all remember that in Spain there was a case that while our government supported the NATO bombing and the "heroic struggle" of the KLA, Kosovo Albanians with criminal gangs attacked and looted military training companies in many industrial areas using an unusual violence."

"EU countries knew about organ and drug trade in Kosovo"

In February 2008 I had reported:

"General Fabio Mini says, the independence movement was financed by European and American Alban criminal syndicats. The Kosovo is the division center and transit country of the European drug trade. After cautious estimations from Interpol, Kosovo groups lead 40% of the European Heroin trade. These groups have not an influence over are corrupting the government - they are the government. This is an open secret among UN/EU bureaucrats."

These days we read more details...

Judge Baltasar Garzon, an advisor to the International Criminal Tribunal in The Hague, today warned of the danger that the crime can take advantage of the globalization of communication technologies for "commitment of crimes via the Internet." Garzon has participated in a conference on Human Rights that was organized by the United Nations in the International Cultural Centre Oscar Niemeyer in Avilés (Asturias, Spain), together with the coordinator of the Electronic Government of the Organization of American States, Miguel Porrua, among others....

At another table organized by the UN in the Niemeyer Center participated Ambassador of Spain and Secretary General of the Aspen Institute Spain, Pablo García Berdoy...Berdoy Garcia expressed his confidence that the Aspen Institute Spain, headed by the former head of European diplomacy Javier Solana, come to some agreement with the Niemeyer Center to conduct some joint action.

Back to academic impact (compare also with Solana's speech yesterday at London School of Economics):

"

Our students today are remarkable. They are growing up in an interconnected world where they can instantly link to ideas and individuals around the globe. They are not bothered by differences, in fact they are used to them and they appreciate them. They believe in a better future. They believe the world needs to change, and they believe they can help change it. They have the talent, enthusiasm and energy. All they need is education and opportunity.

Frankly, my generation is not doing too well in the world right now. But hope is not lost and our hope lies with education. As H.G. Wells once wrote, “Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe.” We will win this race. Armed with global education, inspired by networks of compassion and commitment and influenced by programs like the Academic Impact, the next generation will have the opportunity to build a greater future."from :formal launch of Academic Impact NY, text of IAUP President-elect J. Michael Adams' remarks (highlightened parts by farmer)

The New World Order is a book written by H. G. Wells, originally published in January 1940. Wells expressed the idea that a 'new world order' should be formed to unite the nations of the world in order to bring peace and end war. He definded the term "new world order " as a synonym for the establishment of a scientifically-coordinated world state and planned economy. See also the link to Solana's Grandfather Madariaga with H.G.Wells.

"Bucky was a good friend of mine and an important role model. " Adams on Buckminster Fuller.

It comes at no surprise that Adams was a featured speaker at the III.forum of the ALLIANCE OF CIVILIZATIONS in Rio:

"It is ideed up to us, it is up to YOU! Our enemies are ignorance and intolerance. And in the face of these enemies we must continue to believe in each other and the promise of peace…We must believe that education is the path to peace and that our steps together along that path we will build an irrestible force and a new world"

"Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves". KJV, Mathew 7.

"And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear". KJV, Revelation 13
