Mr. Janez Janša: This is a deep state. This is not a political formation. This is the mafia.

“The empire uses once left paradigm, once liberal, once right, once capitalist and once socialist. All it takes is just to be. Once through the chamber, once through the party, once through the judiciary, once through the media, just to keep them in power. This is a deep country. This is not a political formation. This is a mafia,” the president of the largest parliamentary party, Janez Janša, reveals in an interview on Nova24TV.

Measures how to counter and decompose the deep state system are well known, claims Janez Janša. "No action is required to break it down. Last year I wrote a study on this topic. The measures are divided and those who read it see that this is not such a science. It is necessary to establish a normal state, even for the most serious problems. Let’s say in this situation in the judiciary. There are very simple solutions that do not require a major change of the legislation because it already exists.”

Mr. Janša, let’s start with a government crisis, with the employment of a friend of Marjan Šarac, the failure to hand over the Sova documents, the resignation of the Petrol Management Board. The departure of the Levica party from opposition to opposition. Warming tones of the Social Democrats in the Congress. Marjan Šarac time has expired. How long will such a government abstained, if even coalition partners no longer want to cooperate with Marjan Šarec. It seems that uncles are not yet ready for new elections?

Certainly not only are uncles unprepared, so are not voters. After only a good year from the previous parliamentary elections, they are not very excited to go voting again, especially since they already had local elections after the national assembly, and then European elections and before that the presidential elections. All possible elections non-stop. Probably this election fatigue still lasts. In the last year, a government that has done nothing jet has been making the most of this fact, this desire for stability, as in the times of the Mr. Cerar government and much earlier, for example, the Mr. Pahor government. The main achievement they cited is that they are stable. There are no elections. We have some stability but not what they did or did not actually do. Looking at this year and a little more back what laws or what measures. They accepted some of the nonsense that the Levica had ridiculed. Some routine matters, including a good decision, such as the repatriation of our Venezuelan compatriots, but I do not know where it is now in practice. Everything went quiet.

We have a time of lost opportunities for Slovenia. I can say that there are years of lost opportunity for us. It is in everyone's interest to shorten this. Their question, however is, how this can be shortened without new elections.

Interesting Velenje, Tito's Velenje was said by progressive, people looking forward to the future. It sounded a lot like nonsense as if the government were to adopt right-wing policies, then the Social Democrats need to think about if they want to be in such a government. We must not be in government at all costs, Mrs. Fajon said. Would they then declare Mr. Sharec as right-wing. They will again repeat, that this government is failing because it has been left too little government and too little progressive?

For this political party, which has had many different names in recent decades, is characterized by the fact that they are always there, but nothing to blame. Even in Velenje, they have been in power for 60 years. From day one, when this city exists, they have been guilty of nothing. They are the ones who brought the industry there, which is now being criticized and proclaiming a green paradigm. I have to say which advisor advised this party to declare themselves green in Velenje. This is about the way as German politician would go to Auschwitz and interpret there about human rights.

A few days ago I came across an interesting record of the regimes, now Mr. Petric trumpet newspaper Delo. They wrote that now that the Left has gone from opposition to opposition, now you will have the opportunity to form a government. The hint was obvious, but it did not go without comment that you will only form a government with parties that are afraid of coming to parliament. You turned down this offer on Twitter. The 2011-2012 scenario will not, unfortunately, be obvious.

This diagnosis should be supplemented in the sense that there are only political parties in the current coalition, all five of whom are afraid of elections. Some are afraid of being dropped from the parliament, actually all are afraid. If they do not, then it is logical to find an agreement to go to the early elections. Only I don't see that purpose. There are only those in the coalition who are afraid of elections. I have to say that. Unlike that atmosphere, created by the mainstream media, following this political party Levica departure from this agreement. The Levica was a coalition party at the time, now the coalition anti-coalition party is gone. This fact has changed the political climate and the situation in Slovenia more than was interpreted in the mainstream media, which are advocates of the so-called stability from which they draw various grants for their survival. From now on, the conflict phase has come. A situation we have already seen in Slovenia's recent political history. Even during the Pahor government.

This coalition consists of five political parties. They are all small. Everyone thinks it's the most important because it's the key to staying alive here for a while. This is where they will start blackmailing. DeSUS had already started with pension adjustment amendment and the coalition was nodding. Alenka Bratusek, then Social Democrats, the coalition will nod to everything. They won't be able to do everything. The matter will move into a permanent conflict, which will last for a year or until the next budget, where the question is whether Zmago Jelincic will be enough to resolve the situation. Because the only problem won't be the majority in parliament. The problem will be coordination within the coalition, where there will be less money. The economy is cooling. They did nothing to keep the economy growing. It will be a moment of truth if that moment does not occur earlier. To challenge a little, the Government should draw those who win elections. If Slovenia were a normal state, such a government would already exist. It would be different country and there would be no crisis. Slovenia would be stable in progress and stable in stagnation in decline. On a heart-to-heart basis, in this balance of power in parliament, a serious, solid government that could do a lot of work is impossible to be put together. This fact is contrary to people's expectation that something will be done without new elections.

On the other hand, the question is whether it is possible to prevent much more damage. This is probably possible within this constellation as well, but the big question is if there is enough sense and consideration within some parties of the government coalition in terms of what actually could benefit them and also clients. What is in their own interest, that this could be done only for a while and that the harm will be mitigated. Last but not least, there are two factors, two facts that are undeniable. It's about two billion or more money from Brussels, which is our money, but we don't know how to use it. As a result, dozens of nursing homes could be built, a third development axis, dozens of bypasses, which many Slovenian cities do not have. The money is lying there because the government don’t know how to spend it. Not only they cannot spend it. Also the keeper, i.e. the watchdog of Slovene politics in the central media does not raise any serious questions in this regard. The first question is where the minister is. I do think that already for a month we don’t have a minister responsible for drawing European funds, also no camera in front of Mr Sarec to ask him when he will finally fill this government with one of the key things that cost us a lot. Here, in my opinion, the government as it is now is too weak to be able to negotiate for reallocation of these funds from the so-called soft content where studies are done and in the end, none of it stays. On to the concrete projects that we bloody need. Another such indisputable fact that Slovenia will lead the European Union almost and as it is, not only will it not successfully carry out the project under such leadership, Slovenia will not be able to pull anything out of it.

Interestingly, just one question briefly. I am talking about what interests the coalition customers have. Still, the Levica. You are sitting for coffee in Maxi, and past you are going Luka Mesec and Franc Krizanic. This somehow might draw you thinking where their mode of action came from. The same is with SMC, the same with Alenka Bratusek directly connected via Jankovic to the people who were not elected. Not to mention SD. However, is this government crisis just a show? Maybe only a preparation they still need to come up with something new again. We recently published an article in 1992 The murder, 1994 Depala vas, 2000 Bajuk, and so on, the affair for the affair all the way to Patria and then to prison. Is it a limb of clients who, at their core and attached to some other structure, can even be understood as their own interests, or are managed in such a way as to make room for something new, again.

It is basically for both. Above all, it is a sad fact in Slovenian politics. Especially in the left part of Slovenian politics. There are no sovereign parties here. These parties are not governed by membership, congresses and bodies, but by opinion polls that are often tailored to what they want to learn or achieve. This is decided by the backgrounds of the deep state, the uncles, those who founded them. Because of this, clients come and go. Therefore, they are parties only for one term with a few exceptions, but they have other problems, as we have seen with the so-called social democrats or ecosocialists or whatever they have been renamed in Velenje. In the short term, the Levica benefits out of this conflict. Last but not least, for two months the media was full of Levica and Mr Sarec. Even within this pole, which remains in the coalition, this is Sarec political party.

The question here is what kind of complex ego one must have to name a political party by itself in the 21st century. In short, this party is not losing as much as DESUS is losing, Miro Cerar political party and the next Party Alliance, named after the president. This creates divisions within the coalition. In the long run, only the Levica is gaining plus over this conflict, in terms of increasing or strengthening electoral support. They calculated it all. But if the government collapses in the near future, then extreme left voters will blame them too. The proceeds will not be so big. It should be borne in mind that in the Slovenian electorate, unfortunately, based on what Slavko Gaber did, in Slovenian education, with his successors, some ten percent of the electorate, both among professors and among young people who believe in a better future, leads through the measures we follow in Venezuela.

Let's take a look at these measures. One year around, maybe a little more. With the exception of staffing at large state-owned companies, we have not seen anything else but the employment of mistresses and the escalation of repression. In the meantime, your political party has been trying to resolve the situation. You filed us with a bunch of laws that were rejected by the coalition because they partially regulate areas. Raising the minimum disability pensions, this is partial. Ensuring equal funding for public programs in private schools, this is partial again, Will we have to regulate the whole law again. We will see more in this term, will it be systemic, like Milojka's reform of the law on medical services and patients' rights in the previous term. The first was supposed to be in December, then May, but then there was no government.

If we look at the statistics of their actions by the Sarec government, we would find that most of the laws that dealt with something, such as ratification of international treaties, were proposed by the opposition, the Slovenian Democratic Party, and some from Nova Slovenia. Some would not be there at all because they did not propose anything. This is the first time in history that we have such a defeated, incompetent government structure that it is not even capable of doing some basic things. However, they have hundreds of them written in the coalition agreement. At the same time, we have never had such a cumbersome restrictive apparatus that is nevertheless capable of writing such things. In addition, they pay hundreds of consultants. They are doing the same thing that many civil servants are being pay for. Of the serious things that this government has nevertheless recognized as useful to them in this legislative process, we have last seen in the law on free public transport for seniors and some other categories. We have proposed this several times so far, they have always being refused. Then they suggested the same one themselves. Now Mrs. Bratusek is bragging about this law.

We implemented the law in the form of a law already being implemented by Zvone Cernac when he was still Minister of Infrastructure. We have introduced this to students and other categories. We have been watching the absurdity game for the past two weeks, following a measure by the Bank of Slovenia that limited consumer and home loans. The Prime Minister has stated that the bank should freeze this measure for one year and that some articles of the housing law change will be prepared within one year. On the basis of which the State will impose a guarantee. One year they wanted for this, therefore there are 160,000 public administration employees. We prepared it overnight. It is not a big science. Many other countries have such schemes. We presented this at a press conference with by far the largest attendance in the last year. But think, there was no such theme in the mainstream media at all. National television had a large team there. There was neither a word nor a picture, just a brief mention in broadcast Odmevi. Because these are also matters that open the eyes also to those who follow things more superficially. It is very clear what this government is capable of in such steps.

Instead, all the cannons were turned to the Bank of Slovenia, where Mr Sarec said that, in essence, they had caused this situation with this measure. In fact, they were merely trying to regulate it within their powers. The measure, however, is caused by the wrong development policies of left-wing governments. The fact that 300,000 people are not creditworthy is not the responsibility of the Bank of Slovenia, but those who have established such a situation that we are divided into first and second class people and where people’s work is not enough even to survive. It is the government that has to change these things. Even with measures such as state guarantees for those who are solving the housing problem for the first time, and they are just ashamed that the opposition should do it. Then they do everything to prevent it from being known in the Slovenian public. To put it more specifically, in the coalition treaty these so-called the leftist solidarity social government writes that they will spend 160 million a year to solve housing problems, especially for young people. But they have only six million in the budget. There they are giving only six million who spend ten times more on problem, such as the scandalous spending of money on illegal migrants, instead on the housing problem, the problem of young people.

Before the ads, we talked about political reality and now we talk about political magic. In Velenje, the post-communists miraculously turned a blood red star into green. The Levica had already changed that before them. Ecosocialism they are calling it, a green bag in which they will throw 30 billion over the next 10 years. Today we know that 30 billion will not save the environment, pollution, and not at all globally. But it can maintain the left in power. Is this some kind of new ecosocialism. That is, another stealing of people, just to be genuinely concerned with the environment.

I'll be very specific. The popularity of the Greens in some Western European countries has, of course, lured many in the East, who think it will be possible to reproduce these patterns and replicate what they tried to do in the same party, but by a different name, before the first multi-party elections thirty years ago. At the time, the party suddenly renamed itself in the Democratic Renewal Party. But it is still the same party. They only changed its color from red to European, in our color. It means blue-yellow. All of a sudden, they had posters in blue and yellow with the motto Europe now! Their key people were saying that their program was still socialism with the human face of otherwise Yugoslavia’s, but at the same time they were still putting Europe on posters. It was something completely illusory at that time. Who will take serious Yugoslavia with Milosevic, JLA, the situation that led straight to the war in Europe.

But they put it on posters and then they went back to red. There is something similar now with this so-called green. It should be said here that in the developed world, in the West, people's awareness of what constitutes a clean environment, clean air, clean drinking water and normal living conditions, is by far the greatest in history. It influences people to look at all this a little differently, also on investments. It is not only important that there will be jobs, but that it will not impair the living environment. A positive move, this is ready for imitation. That is to say, also on the other side of Europe, which in some places lacks of such a development experience. However, we have drastic experience in swineing environment. Remember, the older one, what kind of air Ljubljana used to have or what kind of Sava flowed. Now it's brown, sometimes it was black, not to mention the Ljubljanica river and many other Slovenian rivers and the air. How fraudulent the measurements were when, in the late 1980s, we established the first ecological societies to begin with, Udba followed them as a counter-revolution. Now is a different time, generations are growing with this awareness that the environment is a value. Of course, some left in the left scene imbued with cultural Marxism have quickly added to this the catastrophic predictions that climate change is expected to happen. He preaches about how climate change is exclusively caused by man, which is completely unproven. Climate change is happening in the history of this planet and will be also later.

How much we influence on this is a big question. The fact is, we are influencing. The fact is that environmental pollution, of course, also affects the climate in part. But I think that it has a far less impact than changes in the sun or things that one cannot influence. It is necessary to understand this and not to work from ideology and fame and new idols like Greta. But the socialists always knew how to exploit it. They always knew how to preach something so large that it was not understood, which is far and which cannot be verified by a normal person immediately. This is an attempt to combine something. Somewhere in the west, this works, but not in this direction, as our ecosocialists wish. In the east, however, this is practically nonexistent. There is little memory of what the color red meant for the environment. The more red flags were on an object, the more the object was swirling around the environment, in the material and spiritual or cultural sense. So, there is not much bread to be made out of this flour. Maybe a side benefit is, forcing other parties to take environmental issues more seriously, to protect the environment. This usually does not begin at major pompous congresses, but at municipal councils, where they specifically decide on certain environmental matters.

The Levica party also had a green star for three years. Today they are back in the red. But what about SD Congress, let's devote a few moments to that. Something out of time. Everything was wrong. They began with the song of the 14th Division, which was proved the use of children as for a live shield against the Germans. They continued to emphasize Tito's Velenje and talked about ecology in a city where, due to pollution during socialism, cancers still occur much more frequently today. You mentioned also Zasavje, Mezica. With all this, they thundered, "the future will be progressive or it won't be any." Should we be afraid. Do we really want a progressive future?

This password is known to me somewhere from the totalitarian regime. The future will be communism or there will be no future. In different variants, we have heard this and we also read it in different brochures. Otherwise, there is no point in dealing with this political party too seriously. Everything they build on is stacked. From a historical backdrop to a new color, which they themselves acknowledged. Even red is said not to be red because it is green. Someone who is so lying about the obvious facts does not deserve serious consideration. It deserves it when the authorities have their eyebrows raised because of such misguided ideologies the genocides of the Huda Jama and Srebrenica and similar atrocities were born.

Let's look at the other absurdities associated with this political party that you say doesn't make sense to deal with. National Assembly Speaker Dejan Zidan has received left-winger and impatient Domen Savic and his poor 200 hate signatures, which he has been collecting for months. Savic, however, has been lobbying state-run companies to not advertise in government-controlled media. But what signal does a Zidan give to this when he accepts such a radical individual, without all the political weight, and talks to him as if he was some serious activist concerned with real things. What a signal he gives to the rest, practically two million people living in the country who did not sign the petition.

Another act in this plea of distraction and hypocrisy. It comes from the same paradigm. For example, the most famous is Kidric's phrase: “The Communist is never cruel. He is humane even when he shoots people or kills them.” That is, if we pass this on to a Zidan act, we could say “someone who is left-wing, a socialist who considers himself a progressive is always tolerant even if he scolds".

Very interesting, everything about financing the media and other media empires in Slovenia is in the last year of the Sarec government since they have nothing left to advertise. Interestingly, if you know, or have people talk about what is the essential situation in the leadership of these companies. The state-owned companies are one of the largest companies in Slovenia and are always under the control of politics. We have seen the resignation of the Petrol Board, and there are substitutions also elsewhere. Is this topic in the media really so important that pressure is exerted on the management of a state-owned company’s.   

Only they are allowed. If I were to say that so when I was Prime Minister, or Andrej Bajuk or Lojze Peterle. They would crucify him until he repented and went to Canoso and said that these companies were financing the media even more. Europe would collapse and the European Society of journalists would react. However, since it is about them, it is permissible. The situation we have in Slovenia would not exist if there were no double standards. Lieing power is always only possible on the basis of double standards.

The trial in the Patria case will begin in three days from this broadcast. But this time for the judges and prosecutors who brought this construct across three court cases all the way to the Constitutional Court, which then repealed all convictions. There are no more lawyers today, at least serious ones, who would put their name down and defend this process. Consider that the court will be capable of internal reflection and that this time the crow will exclude the eyes. You think that Barbara Klajnsek, Branko Maslesa, Branka Zobec Hrastar, Ferlinc and others will be held liable for their violation of the law in everything from the filing of the indictment onwards, to which, according to the dictatorship of the Constitutional Court should be dismissed.

I firmly believe that they will answer for that. However, I am almost as firmly convinced that this will not happen now in the first instance. The judge is already a judge who has already judged a claim for damages filed by a party for the theft of elections or the damage where everything was proven. In fact, she did not accept any evidence. Ms. Metka Turk, formerly Metka Turk Dejak is also, to our knowledge, a member of the same Judicial Society as the judges she judges. That is, they are sitting together somewhere and I doubt the crow will take out the eyes. However, there are also higher instances, notably the European Court of Justice, where the Slovenian judiciary has already taken a slap in similar cases.

In addition, there are dozens, hundreds of cases of damages awarded in case law. For example Mr. Misic, because he was discharged from the Management Board of Port Koper and Miss, former Musarjeva Information Commissioner, for not being named TV Director. I don't know, ten thousand euros or one hundred thousand euros. Some Kranj businessman was paid millions of damages to be to buy Krvavec. This can be based on a rather strange situation. Everywhere it is full of this, but no noise anywhere.

But this is an eclectic matter. The abuse, so directly attributable to the judges and the prosecutor. The evidences are thus proposed, but as it seems, the same judge will judge the proceedings in the action for damages filed by the political party. They don't even listen to the witnesses we propose, nothing, because ladies and gentlemen are afraid of TV cameras. Mr Maslesa responded with afraid tone to the questions of whether he had being asked about his statements, which were recorded, for which there are also witnesses and so on. Then he said directly that the entire Patria litigation was not only a political process, but an organized one, mounted from the first to the last.

If the court will follow the evidence that are already on the table. You mentioned Mr. Maslesa, then also Branka Zobec Hrastar was also lost. I think Judge Radonjic was the judge at that time. Here are a few things that have already happened at the lower level that point in this direction. But I'm interested in one thing. You mentioned the European Court of Justice. Usually in Slovenia the practice for all these mess is thought by a gentleman who is never elected. He comes to the Constitutional Court. Then it just sits there, with some renown in the world, in Europe. Unfortunately, we note that there are people sitting in the Constitutional Court today who do not care if the case goes to the European Court of Justice. You think it will go so far in the current constellation that it will really have to be decided by the European Court of Justice. This could take another 10 years.

So much likely not, because this must be a matter of a fair trial. You cannot even appeal to the European Court for damages yourself. However, you can complain about unfair trial, and this case, as it stands, indicates that this is precisely why they have a certain advantage. Especially when it comes to high-profile cases, and especially because there are some who have built the weekends, because this is not the first time that such a case comes from Slovenia in connection with an unfair trial. This is full here with us. It is a well-known fact at the European Court of Justice that in Slovenia, despite the existence of legal regulations on criminal trials, judges are not liable. There is no case in Slovenia where one would be held responsible for a criminal trial in some serious cases. I understand that all other European countries have a number of such cases, but Slovenia is not in the power of an establishing a system, of internal control in the judiciary, where the judicial branch of power would be able to sanction those in their ranks who are wrongly prosecuting. Here, actually, crow does not take your eyes out. This is an obvious fact. For this reason, comrades in this case will be carried away as they think they will.

Interesting as you spoke about system problem. But there is actually a systemic problem here. Let’s focus on the case of Kangler and parliamentary investigators in this case. The Constitutional Court has already protected the judges. They probably do not carry any political responsibility, only criminal and so on. This cannot be decided by the National Assembly. It is interesting to note that, on the other side of this line is judge Zirovnik, a former UDBA agent and also an employee of the SOVA during Franc Kangler's mandate, when he was also a member of the KNOVS. Knowing that in the documents available there were mistakes even during the police process, intentional or unintentional. How do you comment on this decision of the Constitutional Court to now protect the judicial branch here? And are you surprised they didn't protect the prosecutors. Basically, they said, that they can answer.

For once, this is only a temporary injunction. Now if this is some kind of judiciary, then the question will be asked sooner or later. That branch of power that is directly elected by the people, that is, the legislative branch of power has no right to control by some prescribed channels, and so on, also other branches of government. Then there is the question that the judicial branch of power has no right to control or to judge the legislative branch of power. The separation of powers exists under the Slovenian Constitution. I find it very difficult to interpret it in such an absurd way as some are now trying. The parliamentary commission of inquiry does not judge. It only determines the facts and, based on those facts, if it wants anyone to be prosecuted or punished, they has to hand it over to other authorities. The point here is simply to try to prevent the fact that the truth would come out to the light. This is not about parliament taking over the functions of the judicial branch of government. They prevent a parliamentary inquiry about this case. Now if they had a clear conscience there would not be a single word about it.

There were similar problems with stents and also with a bank hole. Mr Jansa, the last and most difficult question. Police are interspersed with former VISOV’s people advancing to high positions. The prosecution and the judiciary are also interspersed with obedient staff. Not to mention the media, some are powering by our money and others are sitting in tax oases. How long will it take or how many consecutive terms will it take? How strong a government is that will be able to dismantle the systems of the mafia regime and finally start living a democracy. Because today we are not dealing with the political communist left in terms of their elected leaders, but rather we are dealing with an empire that is left behind.

The empire uses once left paradigm, once liberal, once right, once capitalist, once socialist. All it takes is just to be. Once through the chamber, once through the party, once through the judiciary, once through the media, just to keep them on power. This is a deep country. This is not a political formation. It's a mafia. A series of measures are needed to break it down. I wrote one study last year on this first-rate people topic. The measures are divided and those who read it see that this is not such a science. It is necessary to establish a normal state and even for the most serious problems.

Let's say something about the judiciary. There are some very simple solutions that do not require a major change to the legislation because they already exist. The Judicial service act has, since 1994 so called Pucnik's amendment, stating that judges who violated human rights when there was no permanent mandate should not even be appointed to a permanent term. Based on the entry into force of this article, the Slovenian Parliament will have to re-elect 90 percent of the Supreme Court, as well as in many other administrative fields and the Slovenian judiciary. This fact alone would solve 70 percent of the problem. There are solutions, but a strong majority in the National Assembly is needed, which depends on voters and more voters will overlook this situation, the more solid this majority will be in the coming elections.

Janez Janša was born in 1958 in Ljubljana, Slovenia. In May 1988 he was arrested by the State Security Service for publishing several critical articles in youth newspapers that were printed in small editions. A few months later he was convicted with three others in a closed trial at the military court in Ljubljana and sentenced to 18 months' imprisonment. These arrests and the process triggered mass demonstrations, in which demands for democratic elections were made. Janša was directly elected to the new democratic parliament and in May 1990 to the first democratic Slovenian government, becoming Minister of Defence. In 1993 he became the President of the Slovenian Democratic Party, with which he won the parliamentary elections in 2004, and between 2004 and 2008 he was the Prime Minister of the Government of the Republic of Slovenia. In the first half of 2008, when Slovenia was presiding over the EU, he was in charge of the European Council. At the parliamentary elections in September 2008 the Slovenian Democratic Party fell short of the Social Democrats by 1% of the votes and Janša became the leader of the opposition.

Tide turning on the Slovenian government as massive rally against corruption calls for the resignation of PM Šarec

This past Thursday, protestors packed every corner of the Peršeren square - the main square in the Slovenian capital. They demanded an end to unequal treatment of citizens, the end of corruption and resignation of PM Marjan Šarec. “Slovenia needs a Prime Minister that respects every Slovenian, not only the privileged ones”, said Franc Kangler, a former mayor of Maribor. "Enough is enough," he said, adding "it smells like spring" in a reference to the start of Slovenian independence efforts dubbed as the Slovenian spring.

The leader of the opposition and the president of the Slovenian Democratic Party, Janez Janša also addressed the protestors, saying the rally was about ending double standards and the deep state. "This is the beginning of the end of the anti-Slovenian comedy... After today, nothing will be as it used to be." He called for debt write-offs to "first-class" citizens to be audited, that privileges for some be weeded out of the pension system, a complete block on the Slovenian border for illegal crossings and lustration of corrupt judges. Janša also demanded responsibility of those who stole from the state-owned banks twice, laundered terrorist money in them and shamed Slovenia around the world.

While the government coalition support is plummeting and the anger of Slovenia’s citizens grows, the opposition parties, especially those from the centre-right are gaining momentum and support in the public polls. The protestors announced that they will continue the protests in other Slovenian cities until the real change comes to the country.

The government continues to ignore the five year old Constitutional Court ruling

Every left-wing government since 2014, when the Constitutional court ruled that the current education law is discriminatory against publicly valid programs in private primary schools because they’re not being fully funded by the state, has been trying to find ways how to not implement the court ruling. Slovenian Democratic Party on the other hand has already submitted five versions of its draft law, which would fully comply with the ruling, just to be rejected by the left-wing parliamentary majority every time.

Left-wing governments have even tried to change the Constitution in order not to implement the ruling. Such change of the Constitution would in practice deepen the discrimination and further increase segregation of children due to ideological prejudice against private education and tendency to maintain state monopoly over education.

Šarec’s government continues with the practice of ignoring the rule of law and thus denying parents and children of equal opportunity of choice of schools and denying non-discriminatory financing of publicly validated programs in private primary schools.

Is political party Nova Slovenija under Matej Tonin turning into a party of left-wing capital networks that lobby against foreign investments?

The unusual moves of Nova Slovenija do not seem to end. In the past, we have been accustomed to the fact that the General Secretary of Nova Slovenia Robert Ilc is emerging as the main connecting link between the party and some key representatives of Slovenian business networks. In recent days, the president of the party, Matej Tonin, has also appeared in the role of representing interests of business networks. The exposure of Matej Tonin in the latest attack on Serbian businessman Miodrag Kostić, who has already invested over 200m euros in Slovenia, is not surprising to some experts. Perhaps surprising is the fact that in his role as a lobbyist, he appears not only as party chairman, but as a senior political chairman of the Parliamentary Commission for the Supervision of Intelligence and Security Services.

After the establishment, Nova Slovenija was a distinctly anti-communist and therefore a staunch opponent of the Slovene Communist elite, gathered around the former President of Slovenia and the last President of the Slovenian Union of Communists, Milan Kučan. It has historically emerged as a party of Slovenian Christian Democrats, that is, those groups of Slovenian citizens who were among the most persecuted because of their strong Christian faith and values ​​under the former regime. However, since the change of party leadership and the resignation of the first president of N.Si, Andrei Bajuk from politics, it's clear that tectonic changes are happening in N.Si. The new generation of politicians who rose to the top of the party gradually transformed Nova Slovenija despite its modest election result, into an active supporter of certain capitalistic circles. Those circles, known as the "deep state", which, through their financial and personal connections, control the flow of money from state-owned enterprises and from state-funded investments. It is precisely against such networks that Nova Slovenija, as a Christian party of the “Slovenian spring”, is expected to actively fight. What is really happening in Nova Slovenija and whose party has it become?

Moving to the middle or to donations?

The transition to positions of the Slovenian capitalistic elite, which during the transition period was enriched by the exhaustion of state-owned companies and transactions with the state, did not happen overnight. The party has strongly fought to do everything in its power to lose the image of the right-wing party in the eyes of the public, as if it were something inappropriate, illegitimate, and as if being left-wing were a great value. Under Ljudmila Novak, the party already began to flounder against the left, which was also evident in the growing media sympathy and praise of both Novak and Tonin for their "constructive" opposition stance (or in other words: acting in accordance with the interests of the ruling elite). It was Matej Tonin who had granted the former president and the first Communist the right to a presidential pension allowance, which is now estimated at over 3,000 euros a month. The deputies of Nova Slovenija also supported the government's proposal for a law on access to archives, which made it impossible to investigate the past history and the functioning of UDBA. Such ideologically controversial decisions have been named by the N.Si as a "move to the middle". At the same time as "moving to the middle", controversial donations were started flowing in for various organisations registered by prominent members of the N.Si; grants for their operations were coming from state-owned companies. Particularly striking is the fact that the requests for donations were sent to state-owned companies directly by prominent members of Nova Slovenija.

Lobbying and exploiting N.Si for the interests of the deep state

In Slovenia, there is a clash happening for key positions that will decide on the strength of economic networks or will strengthen them even more. These include the announced sale of one of the last largest packages of debt from Slovenian companies, including the sale of a Slovenian subsidiary of the Austrian Heta, which is a bad bank of the former Hypo Bank. There are 551 million euros of debt of which 386 million euros are bad claims and 166 million euros are recoverable claims. They also own 110 million euros worth of real estate. Several interested parties are seeking to buy Heta, including the Czech APS Fund and Serbian businessman Miodrag Kostić. According to unofficial information, Kostić is expected to submit the highest bid: around 300 million euros. In Slovenia. through MK Group, Kostić already owns Gorenjska banka, Kempinski Palace Hotel in Portorož and Portorož Airport. Kostić is also mentioned as the most serious buyer of Heta, for which he must obtain the consent of the regulatory bodies in Slovenia.

APS purchased a bunch of bad claims from NLB customers in the Balkans several years ago, and together with Apollo (the NKBM owner) also purchased a larger portion of Heta in Serbia. It is important to note, that the notorious Borut Jamnik, one of the most influential people in Slovenia, who also built his network on Slovenian state assets and supervisory boards, sits on the NKBM's Supervisory Board. Jamnik's "octopus," as some call his business network, is rooted in politics and state-owned enterprises, and controls money flows from state-owned companies through media agencies and even political parties.

Jamnik was also very active at the time of the sale of Gorenjska Banka, or more precisely during an attempt to prevent the bank from being sold to the Serbian AIK Bank owned by Kostić's MK Group. When it became clear to the "network" that they could not stop Kostić and that the sales process at the end, he put Matej Tonin into the game. As part of the work of the Parliamentary Commission for the Supervision of Intelligence and Security Services, he noted that there was a "security risk" for Kostić's arrival in Slovenia, and even pointed out that the supervision of the competent authorities was ineffective. The interference of the high politician into the intended foreign investments is anything but normal, even if we know that the capital that controls NKMB, for which the already mentioned Borut Jamnik works in Slovenia, obviously fell out of the game when buying Heta. In the case of Heta, we can watch how a capital network uses a parliamentary party and its president to deal with a rival. Why Matej Tonin used his political function to exert direct media and political pressure on the regulatory bodies during one of the biggest packages of claims against Slovenian companies and what kind of payment is expected from this will soon be revealed.

Deputy Logar: Cerar, Erjavec and Židan All Gained Political Positions, Although They Robbed Taxpayers of € 400 Million with NLB Sale

“Taxpayers have spent 4 billion euros in the past 25 years for the recovery of the bank. We sold it for 600 million euros. Who is to blame for that? Five years ago, we threw 1,5 billion into the bank. However, we sold it for two and a half times less than we paid for its recovery from bad investments" said Deputy Dr Anže Logar at the extraordinary session of the National Assembly. Since they wanted power and influence in the NLB, Miro Cerar, Karl Erjavec and Dejan Židan, harmed taxpayers by as much as 400 million euros, Logar added. However, nobody was penalized.

Government Implements Provisions of Marrakesh Declaration! They Plan to Set Up Security Equipped Reception and Registration Centers!

The Nova24TV’s Editorial Office obtained the minutes of the meeting (attached below) of some of the leading actors in the field of migration at the Ministry of the Interior, in which they agree on setting up reception and registration centers. The fact leaps out that they are aware how dangerous illegal migrants are; on the basis of previous experience, the reception and registration centers will be equipped with "antivandal" equipment in order to prevent the vandalism we witnessed during the previous two major migration waves. The state is thus engaged in the settlement of dangerous migrants, instead of planning to protect the border and citizens, thereby fulfilling the provisions enshrined in the Marrakesh Declaration.

Double Standards of the Slovenian Un-Justice System: Will RTVS be Prosecuted Due to Instigation to Hate Speech and Calls to Violence Against SDS Party Members?

In Janez Janša’s sentence, the Celje court showed how little it cares about the established legal order, the law and the consequences of its decisions on the lives of individuals. Namely, if one plain tweet, in which you defend yourself against the attacks of journalists, is considered offensive, then any statement made by journalists about a group of people or individuals can be considered offensive as well.

Unbelievable! State Abolishes Category of Nationality in the Name of Internationalism; Is There a Connection with the Foreigners Rushing to Apply for Permanent Residence in Ljubljana, for the Needs of Zoran Janković?

Among the skeletons from the cabinet of the previous government – obviously a continuing policy today – it is worth mentioning that in 2016 the Ministry of Public Administration, which was headed by Boris Koprivnikar, actually abolished the declaration on nationality. It is clearly another measure to impose a false "multiculturalism".

Janez Janša on the Marrakesh Declaration: “Illegal Migrants Will be Able to Break Apart Family and Nation More Easily, this is Why this Document is Harmful”

The President of the SDS Party, Janez Janša, reacted to the Marrakesh Declaration: “The Marrakesh Declaration is a point of division at this moment. On one side are those who are aware of the reality of the moment, of the demographics in the Mediterranean basin and in general, and we are aware of the fact that this problem can only be solved at its source, especially in our case in Africa, where population growth rises annually. On the other side are those who see the import of as many migrants as possible from a foreign environment as a continuation of the project from the communist manifesto, where it is written that some sort of socialist non-class society can only be created after the breakdown of family, nation, religion, private property and private education. They changed their priorities a little now, but the degradation of family and nation remains on their agenda. They go by a different name now, but this is still a policy of cultural Marxism and to them the illegal immigrants are potential new voters and, having no roots, the illegal migrants will be able to break apart family and nation more easily, this is why this Document is harmful. ”

The Speaker of the National Assembly Židan Receives New Assessment by the National Assembly’s Legal Service that Levica is Not an Opposition Party – Levica is a Cross-Party Coalition Party!

In response to the request for the list of speakers for the parliamentary questions, the Legal Service of the National Assembly confirmed that the extreme left Levica Party is not an opposition party. Nor is it a coalition party. What is Levica’s status in the Slovenian Parliament? The role of Levica is so unorthodox and outside of all the frameworks of legal imagination that we can only call it a cross-party coalition party, since they had to change the rules to accommodate its position.

Manipulative Surveys by Dnevnik and Večer Newspapers are Created by Ninamedia, with which Janković’s Public Companies Signed Contracts for Enormous Amounts!

The newspapers Dnevnik and Večer published yesterday – just a week before the local elections – a survey by Ninamedia, which is supposed to measure the public pulse in the capital of Slovenia.

This survey supposedly measured a great advantage of the current mayor of Ljubljana, Zoran Janković, ahead of the investigator Dr Anže Logar, and predicts his victory in the first round. According to the publicly available data, the municipal public companies controlled by Janković are doing business with Ninamedia. Among the biggest sponsors are the Municipality of Ljubljana (MOL), the Ljubljana Public Holding, the Energetika Ljubljana, the Pharmacy Ljubljana, Žale (Ljubljana’s cemetary), Sport Ljubljana, Vodovod-Kanalizacija (Ljubljana’s water supply and sewage system), and others. The value of the business exceeds one million euros from a total of EUR 2,765,618.55 that the other survey agency, Mediana, has made with the state!

The Ninamedia agency, known for its creation of, not the measurement of, public opinion, prepared a poll for newspaper Dnevnik one week ago, in which Zoran Janković is the winner of the local elections in the first round. This is a first-rate manipulation with which they want to lull the electorate of the most serious counter-candidate Dr Anže Logar and to prevent the fiasco of the current mayor, whose support has been steadily falling since the first elections he took part of, in 2006. In comparison to his first election, he has lost almost 50% of the electorate by the last elections.

Ninamedia published a poll two weeks ago that we found out was done unprofessionally, on a sample of only 369 respondents. This time, after reviewing publicly available data, we came to the conclusion why the agency so fervently favors Zoran Janković. Erar’s data reveal transactions with the state and taxpayer money, which show that public companies and institutions founded by the City of Ljubljana are financing Ninamedia. In total, with about 1,200,000 euros, representing as much as 30% of the total revenue of the agency. This information was presented by Janković’s challenger Anže Logar two days ago within his campaign.
