George Soros is coming to grips with political reality.
The growing populist uprising across Europe is poised to leave its mark in the 2019 elections for the European Parliament.
This has the Hungarian-born financial oligarch worried.
In an article for Project Syndicate, Soros said “Europe is sleepwalking into oblivion, and the people of Europe need to wake up before it is too late. If they don’t, the European Union will go the way of the Soviet Union in 1991.”
Soros can complain all he wants, but Europeans are actually waking up. And for reasons opposed to the seasoned globalist’s agenda.
Soros should be worried, given his position as Chair of the Open Society Foundations, an organization that has labored diligently to eradicate the concept of national sovereignty.
Despite taking advantage of the Syrian Civil War to facilitate the mass migration of refugees to Europe, Soros has been facing numerous roadblocks in the past two years.
Since Brexit occurred in 2016, populist movements have popped up all over Europe. Europe’s current refugee crisis has been one of their chief concerns, as cities in the United Kingdom and Sweden have become hosts to no-go zones and immigrant ghettoes filled with crime.
While not all of these populist movements want to have their respective countries leaving the EU, they at least question the EU’s migration policies and heavy-handed approach to decision-making.
At the end of the day, Soro’s dream of a “unified Europe” is simply a fantasy. With dozens of different cultures and languages on the European continent, the prospect of a United States of Europe is a pipe dream.
Trying to pull off such a feat will come with plenty of political tension as witnessed with Brexit and the “Yellow Vest” protests in France.
If anything, the EU should go the way of the Soviet Union and break apart.
Competition between political jurisdictions like nation-states is what made Europe the most prosperous region in human history.
A bloated super-state, with an isolated political class in Brussels, the EU has outlived its original purpose as a customs union. In its present form, the EU is a hub for globalism and political centralization; completely ignoring the will of constituents outside of Brussels.
Maybe, those “reactionary” nationalists were on to something all this time.
The closer policymaking is to the people, the better.
Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation
Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.
Under The Background Check Expansion Act, gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House
“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.
According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.
Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms.
Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.
Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
