May 30, 2024 – EU-US Forum Tip Sheet

Welcome to the EU-US Forum Weekly Tip Sheet, your go-to product for information about the EU-US Forum and its work, timely updates on the dangerous far-left ideas coming out of the European Union, and detailed analysis on the key players influencing European politics.

We send this out weekly to keep you apprised of the most important political and policy topics in Europe as we continue to work toward our mission of exposing the EU’s radical agenda and the threat it poses to the US and Western Civilization.

1. EU-US FORUM RELEASES POLLING, FIRST US EVENT: It was a big week for the EU-US Forum with the release of a shocking new poll revealing European’s political views are shifting to the right and EU citizens want stricter border security and less illegal immigration. Our polling results also suggest strong European dissatisfaction with their current leadership.

The highlights:

  • In Portugal, 75% of respondents identify the cost of living as one of the three most critical issues facing their country, closely followed by France (65%), the Netherlands (61%), Germany (57%), and Italy (55%).

  • A staggering 73% of Italian respondents think they are paying too much in taxes, followed by Portugal (69%), Netherlands (52%), Germany (51%), and France (44%).

  • 76% of French, Germans, and Dutch, 77% of Portuguese, and 63% of Italians want more restrictions on illegal immigration.

  • 89% in Portugal, 85% in France and Germany, 74% in Italy and 72% in the Netherlands believe domestic food production and farming must be renewed.

  • Germany 62%, France 60%, The Netherlands 55%, Portugal 54%, and Italy 46% think that excessive regulations threaten economic and national security.

    This is only the beginning.

We held our first U.S. event in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday morning with Dave Rubin, Chad Wolf, Heritage’s James Carafano and Kara Frederick, EU-US Forum Senior Advisor Joe Grogan, and EU-US Forum Founding Board Member Matt Mowers. The panelists repeatedly blasted Joe Biden’s open borders agenda and discussed how far-left leaders in Brussels are pursuing the same failed policies abroad.

They also touched on the recently released polling that showed Europeans are yearning for conservative policy solutions ahead of their EU elections next week (June 6-9) and as EU member states struggle with the cost of living, illegal immigration, government censorship, and food production issues.

Watch the full panel HERE and view some of the highlights below.

  • “’Leaders that love their country, want to secure their country, want to have national sovereignty, these are not extreme positions… this is common sense.”Chad Wolf

  • The strategy for the Left is to create a right of global migration… the consequence of that is that national governance will be overwhelmed and unable to control that and then the response to that is, we would just have global governance – now that is really the agenda.”James Carafano

  • “At this point, you have people come in and say they will retain everything about the country they left and bring it over here instead of embedding in the social fabric.Kara Frederick

  • “[Europeans] know that the EU has failed to address these core issues around individual liberty and the security around border control.”Matt Mowers

  • The Elites, for too long, lied to their populations about the consequences of what they were doing…that there were no cultural differences, there would be no increase in crime…the general populations have had enough of being lied to.Joe Grogan

2. 📈 RISING RIGHT: The Left in Europe has spent decades forming alliances against the Right to keep them isolated and powerless, but that is about to change.

With Right’s latest rise, conservative leaders Marine Le Pen (France) and Viktor Orbán (Hungary) are hoping to form a coalition joining the ID and ECP groups together to increase their strength in the EU post-election. The two are urging Italy’s PM Giorgia Meloni to support the efforts. If this were to come to fruition, it would be the second largest group in Parliament behind the EPP.

The Left’s failed policies have become evident to European citizens and they are ready for a change. Polls are showing that in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Austria the Right is in the lead, and in Germany, Poland, Latvia, and Estonia they are just behind in second.

In Belgium, France, Portugal, Germany, and Finland, young europeans are supporting the Right as much or more than Boomers. And in Germany and Finland, younger citizens are turning away from the far-Left Greens Party, which has been popular for their age group.

Overall, young citizens are moving away from establishment parties and groups to newer formed ones, noting a desired change in the way the EU works and affects their lives.

3. BRUSSELS SHOWDOWN 🐄 🚜: The Dutch Farmers Defense Force with the support of farmers unions in France, the Netherlands, and Spain will defend their industry, livelihood, and continent’s food security and national security in Brussels on Monday. 3,000 tractors and life-size plastic cows are expected to be in attendance.

Dairy farmers are also meeting with the EU’s Agriculture and Fisheries Council on Monday. Dairy farmers from five members states will also begin a “Fair income for farmers now” campaign at the protest.

The European Conservative’s Thomas O’Reilly commented on these developments, saying, “A combination of EU green edicts, free trade agreements, and oversupply caused by the Ukrainian war has created an impossible situation for the people who supply Europe with food.”

LIBERAL INFLUENCERS GET EU FUNDING IN ELECTION YEAR: The EU’s Greens party have been using their public funds to pay influencers to push their messaging. One of these activists has blatantly compared Italy’s, the Netherland’s, France’s, and Hungary’s conservative leaders to Hilter, Mussolini, Putin, and the Nazi regime. The Greens campaign manager said that they utilize thousands of volunteers and “dozens and dozens of [paid] influencers” to get their messaging to the EU youth, their main target base.

EU ELITE DEFY THEIR OWN RULES: European Commission President, Ursula von der Leyen, defied her own recently passed transparency rules as she failed to report €70,000 in a multi-EU-nation ad buy through Google ads for her campaign which consisted of video ads touting her leadership and commitment to the EU. While this lack of and incorrect reporting of who paid for the ads violates the EU’s new transparency laws, the laws will not be enacted until after next week’s elections. The Commission President also signed a voluntary transparency code of conduct back in April, agreeing to not post campaign ads through a third parties, such as the agency that did so for these google ads.

DEBATE NIGHT: The EU Parliament’s most recent debate took place last Thursday with only five of the seven political groups represented, notably without the conservative ID and ERC groups. Eurovision required groups to nominate a lead candidate for Commission President ahead of the Parliament elections next week to participate in the debate and the two groups refused to do so. (Parliament elects the Commission President weeks after they are officially in office and it is not a legal requirement for groups to nominate their lead candidate before the elections.)

The candidates mainly used the debate to take shots at the EPP’s lead candidate and current Commission President, von der Leyen, and the liberals Renew group’s Sandro Gozi on whether they would work with with “far-right” groups. The most interesting topic of discussion was immigration ⬇️

  • Walter Baier (European Left): Compares the EU not allowing ‘asylum seekers’ into Europe currently to Western countries not opening borders to refugees to victims of the Holocaust.

  • Sandro Gozi of the Renew EU Now PartyWe must save asylum seekers no matter what… If we had the current migration pact back in 2014 both the asylum seekers and us would be much better off”

  • Terry Reintke of the EU Greens“We are an aging continent we will need migration if we want to sustain our hospitals and if we want to be economically successful.”
