    History is written by the victors, the US hasn’t seen through a conflict since ww2.

    The North Atlantic Treaty Organization is well and truly past its ‘use by date’.

    I cannot see other than the EU elite are ensuring there will be further European wars, just as they have fought amongst themselves for 1,000’s of years.

    And The King of England dined with The King of France in the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles! Even Emperor Obama was there. How gauche!

    The sun kings would be dazzled by their preening reflections as they collectively planned the next attack upon the serfs.

    OT, at least sideways, but from your link C.L. I was also interested to read this,

    Why the GOP Fell in Love with Hungary

    Thanks for that link, NFA.


    While it is true that Fidesz speaks often of the importance of the Christian family, the Hungarian government encourages reproduction by effectively boosting welfare. In April, the government insisted that supermarkets should put promotions in place, offering sales on a different kind of product each week. In 2019, Orbán promised that women with more than four children would not have to pay income tax; his government said it would help families with more than three children purchase cars and offered parental leave for grandparents, more places in nursery schools, and repayments of up to 10 million forints (about $30,000) for loans taken out by families with two or more children. Though some on the American right have gestured at borrowing from Fidesz’s natalism, these efforts have practically no chance of being adopted by the GOP: The modern Republican Party is seeking to cut, not expand, support from the state.

    Am I supposed to see those Orbanist policies as contrary to ‘conservatism’ because Milton Friedman or something?


    She then attempts to drive a wedge between US Republicans and Hungary on the basis that Budapest is critical of NATO and NATO expansionism.

    She doesn’t really get it, does she?

    According to a quick Google search and the summary answer at the top of the search page, Hungary’s fertility rate was

    1.56 births per woman (2020)
    Despite the assistance over recent years, it’s dropped to 1.53 in 2023.

    The European average js. :

    1.53 births per woman

    Friedman didn’t help and neither has the Hungarian government.

    Obviously they are going the way of Chyna!
