Russian President Vladimir Putin is not deliberately trying to undermine Chancellor Angela Merkel ahead of her impending re-election campaign – or at least, if he is, he is hiding his tracks well.
That’s the inconclusive conclusion that Germany’s foreign and domestic intelligence agencies came to last fall, following several months of investigation which was delivered to Merkel’s chief-of-staff Peter Altmaier in the form of a 50-page report.
Altmaier chose not to make the report public, but it was leaked to the “Süddeutsche Zeitung” newspaper this week.
Australian right-wing Senator Cory Bernardi has defected from the nation’s government to launch his own Australian Conservatives party.
Mr Bernardi confirmed his move in Australia’s upper house on Tuesday, ending months of speculation.
The outspoken senator has repeatedly criticised PM Malcolm Turnbull’s government for being too moderate.
His departure comes as a fresh blow to Mr Turnbull, who holds a precarious majority of one in the lower house.
If Mr Bernardi were to persuade a single MP to join him, Mr Turnbull – whose Liberal party has been hit by infighting and has fallen far behind Labor in opinion polls – would be left with a minority government.
Mr Bernardi’s views on topics including same-sex marriage, climate change and abortion have polarised public opinion.
“This has been a very difficult decision for me,” Mr Bernardi said. “Perhaps the most difficult one of my political life.”
“The level of public disenchantment with the major parties, the lack of confidence in our political process and the concern about the direction of our nation is very, very strong.”
Former Florida Rep. Allen West once declared President Obama an Islamist who is intentionally working against the security of the United States.
Seeking to counter the ridiculous overuse of the phrase “Islamophobic” to describe anyone who criticizes radical Islam, West came up with his own term to describe those who constantly excuse or dismiss the brutal and murderous actions of radical Islamic jihadists.
“Our new term is ‘Islamapologist.’ This term will be used to classify those who would shift the blame for Islamic terrorism. Or who want to instill self-censorship in those who define this savage and barbaric enemy.”
The idea that one’s sexuality is a feeling and not a biological fact “is doing much damage to families, adolescents, and children and should be confronted as an opinion without biological foundation wherever it emerges,” said Dr. McHugh in his article, Transgenderism: A Pathogenic Meme. Dr. McHugh opines,
“I am ever trying to be the boy among the bystanders who points to what’s real.
I do so not only because truth matters, but also because overlooked amid the hoopla—enhanced now by Bruce Jenner’s celebrity and Annie Leibovitz’s photography—stand many victims.”
Why are Dr. McHugh’s observations so controversial?
Because he believes those who want to change their sex suffer from a serious psychiatric condition, instead of it being simple an accident of birth.
And as being transgendered has become more fashionable, more people who have attempted to “change their sex” end up suffering from depression. People who have undergone sex-reassignment surgery commit suicide 20 times more often then their peers.
This is a dangerous condition, and they need treatment. Source:www.thepoliticalinsider.com/
Its sounds concerning now to hear that more than a few of the architects of these educational policies are in fact confirmed paedophiles or have a history of speaking out for its acceptance.
Societies first responsibility is to protect the innocence of its children from those who seek to ruin their lives through a perversion of their sexuality.
It is starting to look like those who argued the “it equates to promotion” line against the legalising of Homosexuality may have had a point after all.
Second rate lawyers are misleading everyone in the country by insisting that, in order to leave the European Union it is essential to “trigger” Article 50 in its entirety. This line has been swallowed whole by the government, the media and commentators.
It is, however, absolute nonsense. Under international law and under Article 50 (1) itself, only notice to leave is necessary.
We will be paying for them to negotiate – and once we get to the end of the timeline there will be no real incentive to reach prompt agreement, as well as no reason to be true to their negotiated position.
In fact any excuse of an election, a financial crisis or a small war – could derail years and millions of man-hours of work.
Now turn this situation on its head.
The United Kingdom withdraws from the European Union (as directed by the people of the country in the referendum of June 2016) in March 2017 with immediate effect.
The European Union loses almost 14% of its revenues overnight. I suppose our mission / delegation will be received with a great deal more alacrity then they would otherwise.
This would turn the screw on the Commission and force them to conclude negotiations rapidly.
Leaked funding documents reveal an effort by George Soros and his foundations to manipulate election laws and process rules ahead of the federal election far more expansively than has been previously reported.
The billionaire and convicted felon moved hundreds of millions of dollars into often-secret efforts to change election laws, fuel litigation to attack election integrity measures, push public narratives about voter fraud, and to integrate the political ground game of the left with efforts to scare racial minority groups about voting rights threats.
Mr Trump repeatedly vowed to crush the monstrous death cult – which has carried out several attacks in the US – during his election campaign.
And he praised the ruthless Russian president for “bombing the hell” out of ISIS strongholds in war-torn Syria and Iraq.
