          World Clean Up Day 15 September 2018      Cache   Translate Page      
The biggest civic action in the history of our planet, the World Cleanup Day, will take place on 15 September. On this day, millions of people from 150 countries will come together to take a step towards a cleaner world and draw attention to the global waste problem.

The biggest civic action in the world started in Estonia in 2008 and will be overseen from Estonia on 15 September. This means that we have the chance to make Estonia bigger than ever before in just one day.

Come along and join the cleanup action!

Find the nearest pile of rubbish, take some bin bags and gloves with you, and clean it up. Even the smallest contribution helps! You will find the contact details of the teams in your country at www.worldcleanupday.org/contact/

World Clean Up Day 15 September 2018

●    The World Cleanup Day will be held on 15 September 2018.
●    The biggest civic action in the world started in Estonia in 2008 and will be overseen from Estonia on 15 September. Approximately 150 countries will start cleaning up the Earth on the same day under the leadership of Estonia.
●    Let’s Do It World Cleanup Day is part of the Estonia 100 programme and is the biggest gift from Estonians to the world.
●    The World Cleanup Day will follow the Sun around the world – the cleanup will start at 10 am in New Zealand and end 36 hours later in Hawaii. The action will kick off on 14 September at 11 pm Estonian time.
●    The headquarters of the World Cleanup Day will be based in Tallinn and the results of the action, information, TV broadcasts, etc. from all over the world will be gathered there. The global TV broadcast will be hosted from the headquarters in Tallinn and shared all over the planet.
●    Millions of people will come out in support of cleaner nature, with an aim to take a step towards a cleaner world together and draw attention to the global problem of waste and seek possible solutions.
●    In Estonia, the cleanup action will focus on forests, beaches, lake shores and river banks.

Facts about the waste problem

●    According to the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA), ca 4 billion tons of waste is generated every year, of which ca 1.6 billion tons  is household waste.
●    3.5 billion people in the world have no access to waste management systems and the waste ends up in nature, incl. in oceans, or it is burnt.
●    According to the Global Waste Management Outlook, hundreds of millions of tons of illegal waste ends up in nature every year and from there makes its way to the oceans. 80% of the waste floating in oceans is of mainland origin.
●    This is why the problem of waste is just as critical for developed countries as it is for developing ones. Although several associations monitor waste in different regions of the world, insufficient information about the quantities and locations of the waste prevents dealing with the problem efficiently.

The story of the World Cleanup Day

●    A group of people, including Rainer Nõlvak, Toomas Trapido, Henri Laupmaa and Kadri Allikmäe, sat down together in August 2007 and came up with the idea to clean Estonia from waste in one day. Ahti Heinla, Tiina Urm, Tatjana Lavrova, Eva Truuverk and Anneli Ohvril joined them later. 620 volunteers and over 500 organisations in Estonia helped make Let’s Do It! a success.
●    More than 50 thousand people cleaned up over 10 thousand tons of waste on 3 May 2008. It would have taken the state years and cost 22.5 million euros. But it got done in one day and only cost half a million euros (mostly the cost of waste handling by waste management companies).
●    The first country to join Estonia’s initiative was Lithuania, which carried out a supporting cleanup day with Estonia (with a couple of thousands of volunteers on 3 May 2008). Latvia carried out a cleanup action in autumn; Slovenia, Portugal, Serbia and many others followed suit.
●    Almost 20 million people from more than a hundred countries of the world have cleaned up their territories at different times based on the Let’s Do It! model.
●    Maximum numbers of cleanup day participants: Latvia (210,000), Lithuania (250,000), Portugal (100,000), Slovenia (270,000), Romania (250,000), Albania (281,000), Hungary (200,000), Bulgaria (375,000), Ukraine (500,000), India (54,000), the Philippines (28,000), etc.

          The Real Contagion Threat Is Political      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Tom Luongo,

The real danger to the current institutional order was just demonstrated in Sweden. While I’ve talked at length about the potential financial contagion stemming from the implosion of multiple emerging market currencies it is the growing political crisis in Europe that will shape our future.

Sweden is The Land where Socialism Works, or so I keep getting told by ignorant leftists who cling to the power fantasy that central planning is the only way to make the trains run on time.

Central planning does do that, but only to deliver people into the nightmare of social disorder brought on by the disruption of the natural flow of capital.

Venezuela, South Africa, Soviet Union, post WWII Britain ... you get the idea.

But, the effects of the collectivist mindset are far more pernicious than those extreme examples.  And it is important we understand how little policies grow into big problems over time due to shaping people’s decisions through government edicts.

Corps Insanity

There is no better example for what I’m talking about than the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  A completely useless organization which sucks up billions in tax money to straighten rivers, build dams and alter the landscape to fit the needs of whoever paid Congress the most in lobbying money that year.

They engage in projects that cannot easily be done in the free market, nor should be done. But their activity creates downstream effects from their meddling which multiply over years and lead to problems which are orders of magnitude larger than they would have ever become naturally.

The Red Tides occurring off the Florida coast now are a political cudgel being swung at Governor Rick Scott to prevent him from moving up to U.S. Senator over his ‘environmental record.’  Now I’m no fan of Skeletor, as we call him down here, but these charges are simply grandstanding.

Because anyone who has an ounce of decency, intellectual honesty or passing acquaintance with history knows that the seeds of South Florida’s environmental nightmares are a product of the Corps of Engineers altering the landscape to serve Big Sugar and Big Corn.

These are two crops we shouldn’t even be growing (along with Soy and rapeseed) no less subsidizing due to their horrific effects on human health and development.  And this is another downstream effect of government meddling.

The real epidemic in the U.S. sapping our national wealth is not the rise of opioid use (though terrible) or the trade deficit it is diabetes and auto-immune diseases brought on by two generations of bad diet and ruinous food.

Health care and Big Pharma cost us trillions in easily avoided health problems due to the erroneous idea that human dietary needs are well-served by eating like my goats.

They aren’t.  Hell, even my goats spend most of their lives in ketosis.

This, again, is a product of government meddling into our food choices by diverting capital via farm subsidies and other bureaucratic structures built through the collective action of the ballot box.

So, a $200 million river straightening project turns into a multi-generational multi-trillion dollar loss of productive capital trying to keep people alive a little longer after a lifetime of eating like pigs being fattened for slaughter.

Okay, maybe that was the plan overall.

Rising Tides, Falling Boats

But, back to Sweden.  The results from the Swedish elections are another data point that populism is, well, popular.  The surge in popularity of the Sweden Democrats was strong enough to throw into flux the formation of a new government as support for the ruling Social Democrats has collapsed.

Where have we heard this story before?  Oh, only like all over freaking Europe.

What started with Brexit, carried across the pond to Trump, and spread to the continent in Italy, France, Poland, Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania, Russia, the Czech Republic and Germany which has now crossed back over the Baltic Sea to Sweden.

And still the political Left refuses to acknowledge the legitimacy of the concerns of voters, clinging desperately to the narrative that this is simply fringe ‘alt-right’ or ‘far-right Nazism’ rearing its head in an adolescent ab reaction to their very sensible and humanitarian policies.

They are supported in this delusion by the architects of the immigration nightmare in Europe who are quick to label anything vaguely sniffing of cultural pride as ‘extremism’ to shame apolitical and conscientious folks into staying within this failing paradigm of cultural suicide.

It is not working and thank the gods for it.

Whether the Sweden Democrats’ share of the vote is large enough for them to enter the government is irrelevant in the end.  Sweden’s political system is backward, but, hey, who am I to judge.

No one, actually, and that is the point.

The surge in popularity is what matters. And if they are excluded and things in Sweden continue as they are, then it will only serve up an even bigger voter backlash the next time they go to the polls if the government can even survive that long.

What’s is relevant is the contagion brought on by the downstream effects of one government intervention begetting a complete overhaul of the political landscape.

Europe is balkanizing.

Potential Post-EU map of Europe: Source @scottskingharry

Cultural Suicide Postponed

National cultures and community pride are sources of societal strength. The proponents of the Open Society and cultural homogenization are tone-deaf to the realities of forcing change because it is ‘the right thing to do’ or ‘the right thing to advocate.’

All it does is betray their totalitarian urge to force people they look down on to be better by first demonizing them for being racist and then acting out their own racism by forcing on their political opponents a life they do not want.

And the minute these long-suffering, abused people stand up for themselves and say, “No more” to their once peaceful communities being torn asunder by acid-throwing, gang-raping, rudderless immigrant males their reaction is to cry, “Racist!”

But that’s not working anymore.  What is working is the two-edged sword of political power.  Those that live by it will eventually hang from the rafters by it unless they willingly step aside and admit defeat with a modicum of grace and humility.

Given the reactions from the politically powerful all across Europe and the U.S. to this critical shift in the political landscape that is the last thing on their minds.

And that’s the most tragic irony of this entire period of history.  The very people who champion communitarianism and democracy as their highest ideal fear the power they have used so indiscriminately will be used against them when they lose it.

And their losses are mounting.

That’s what is inflaming their hatred and violence.  Abject terror of the backlash.  It is why this political contagion is the catalyst for global financial and economic collapse.  It’s already here in the form of emerging market upheaval. Faith in the institutions which circumscribe our lives is what props up currencies and, ultimately, asset values.

Politics got us into this mess.  It will not get us out of it.  The Great Reset is coming.  And you need to be prepared.

Bannon's latest play

My Salon column this morning:

Here's a story that won't merit a lot of discussion in the American press because our political circus and culture war is so loud and raucous that we can't hear much else:
Sweden headed for a hung parliament after an election on Sunday that saw the popularity of the nationalist Sweden Democrats surge, as one of Europe’s most liberal nations turns right amid fears over immigration.
Sweden is a social-democratic nation with excellent services, benefits and a very high standard of living. Most Swedish citizens have traditionally held very liberal views on just about everything. But the far right made big gains in this year's election because of immigration and, frankly, race. That's what right-wing "nationalism" in 2018 comes down to. Welcome to our world.

Sweden isn't the first European country to go this way in recent years. Hungary, Austria, Italy and (in its own manner) Britain have taken rightward turns, and those political movements are picking up steam all over the world. I won't try to analyze the reasons for this. There are hundreds of people trying to sort out where all this is coming from. Let's just say there are tectonic forces at play, from migration caused by war, economic dislocation and climate change to income inequality, corruption and God knows what else. But regardless of the reasons, there is no doubt that something is afoot and it's gaining ground.

Here in the United States, our version of this phenomenon is Trumpism, an especially cartoonish form of the right-wing nationalism we see elsewhere. Donald Trump is a ridiculous celebrity with a simple-minded set of talking points he's been spouting for decades, along with some recently acquired hate-radio tropes deployed to get his followers excited. Nonetheless, Trumpism is best understood as a variant of the global "alt-right" movement devoted to martial chauvinism, authoritarianism, anti-liberalism, nativism and racism. Perhaps the primary exponent of the current U.S. iteration is former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, who is also the former chairman of Breitbart News and now a propaganda filmmaker.

Bannon's last foray into electoral politics didn't end well when he went down to Alabama to stump for Judge Roy Moore in his ill-fated Senate race. You may recall that his pitch was almost entirely a series of attacks on the Republican leadership:




Bannon has been traveling all over Europe the past few months, making contacts and forming alliances with the various right-wing movements across the Atlantic, observing how they become dominant in their respective conservative coalitions and forming a new organization he calls "the Movement." Now he has rushed back to the U.S. to join the midterm fray, hoping to foment the paranoia and grievance that defines both Trump and his followers and to reframe the November election as a war for survival.

This weekend saw the release date of Bannon's new film, "Trump@War." It portrays the Democrats and the media as allied against Donald Trump and, by association, his followers. This strategy goes hand in hand with Bannon's recent proclamation that the Republicans need to run on impeachment.



There's good reason to believe Bannon is doing at least some of this in order to get back in Trump's good graces, but according to Jonathan Swan at Axios, it isn't working. Or at least it hasn't up until now. However, the second front in Trump's war may prove to be more fruitful. In an interview with Reuters over the weekend, Bannon described the New York Times' recent anonymous op-ed by a senior administration official as an attempted "coup" and compared Trump to Abraham Lincoln, which he knows the president loves:
“What you saw the other day was as serious as it can get. This is a direct attack on the institutions,” Bannon said during a flying visit to Italy. “This is a coup, okay ... This is a crisis. The country has only ever had such a crisis in the summer of 1862 when General McClellan and the senior generals, all Democrats in the Union Army, deemed that Abraham Lincoln was not fit and not competent to be commander in chief,” Bannon said. “There is a cabal of Republican establishment figures who believe Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States. This is a crisis."

He also claimed that he's not a "conspiracy guy," which will come as a surprise to anyone who's read his writings or watched his films.

Bannon is a white nationalist propagandist who has openly proclaimed that he wants to create chaos and blow up the existing world order and start over. If he had never been involved with the Trump campaign and hired into the White House he would probably be dismissed as a pseudo-intellectual Alex Jones. But the imprimatur of his association with the president gives him credibility in foreign capitals and could very well be influential in the Trump White House once again if this spirited defense against virtually everyone -- the Democrats, the media and the GOP establishment -- convinces Trump that he's a loyal soldier after all.

The fight between Trump and the Democrats is a natural political battle, and Trump has repeatedly insisted that he views the media as his enemy. But the ongoing leaking from Trump insiders and the anonymous op-ed could represent a tremendous opportunity for Bannon to flog his crusade against the Republican establishment, which he has considered to be Job One since his Breitbart days.

But he may have been spending too much time in Europe lately. Bannon has apparently failed to notice that if at one point there was a civil war within the Republican Party, the establishment has unconditionally surrendered. No Republican with any institutional power has done a thing to stop Trump. Some insiders have leaked self-serving stories to the press in order to reassure waffling suburban Republicans that they needn't worry about Trump blowing up the world. That looks a lot like an effort to help the party keep control and further empower his administration.

Sure, Trump is a crude demagogue. But Republicans have been priming the resentments of their white racist base for decades. How much of a surprise can this really be? The program he's enacting is their program, which they can't bring themselves to oppose no matter how crazy he sounds. They're just worried about losing those voters who find Trump to be too boorish. He doesn't understand that you're supposed to dog-whistle this stuff so you don't humiliate the nice suburban Republicans in front of the neighbors.

Bannon has said that the far-right European parties are about a year ahead of the United States. He's got that wrong. The European right may be getting its mojo back after a long hiatus, but the American right has been pushing a racist, nationalist politics for decades. It's just talking about it more openly now.

          Орбана потрібно зупинити, – екс-прем'єр Бельгії про небезпечну політику уряду Угорщини      Cache   Translate Page      
Європарламент розпочав дисциплінарний процес проти Угорщини. 12 вересня євродепутати проголосували за те, щоб покарати країну за численні порушення демократичних інститутів, розпочавши процес, який може призвести до позбавлення Угорщини права голосу в ЄС.

Дев'ять місяців тому Європейська комісія запустила такий же процес проти Польщі. Таким способом ЄС намагається не допустити порушення державами-членами його основних цінностей, пише CNN.

Голосування у Страсбурзі відбулося після того, як член комітету Європарламенту Джудіт Сарґентіні з Нідерландів представила доповідь про порушення громадянських свобод урядом Угорщини, включаючи жорстоке поводження з мігрантами, нацменшинами, ЗМІ та політизацією верховенства права.

Після голосування Сарґентіні подякувала своїм колегам за те, що вони поставили позицію "захисту демократії вище за інтереси їхньої партійної політики".

Так, за доповідь, яка закликає покарати Угорщину, проголосували 448 євродепутатів, 197 виступили проти, 48 – утрималися.

Як зазначається у статті, досі Орбан багато в чому був захищений від будь-яких дисциплінарних дій ЄС завдяки підтримці членів Європейської народної партії (ЄНП), до якої належить і його політична сила Fidesz.

Але після палкої промови угорського прем'єра на дебатах 11 вересня, в якій він назвав доповідь комісії про політику Угорщини "шантажем", з'ясувалося, що терпіння членів ЄНП щодо дій глави угорського уряду – не вічне.

За роки прем'єрства Орбан ухвалив закони, які посилюють тиск на вільну пресу та політизують судову владу Угорщини. Міжнародні спостерігачі від Організації з безпеки і співробітництва в Європі (ОБСЄ) висунули обвинувальний вердикт щодо недавніх парламентських виборів в Угорщині, попередивши про "залякування та ксенофобну риторику, упередженість у засобах масової інформації та непрозоре фінансування передвиборчої кампанії".

На думку колишнього прем'єр-міністра Бельгії Гі Вергофстадта, Орбан не приховує, що хоче побудувати неліберальну демократію в Європі. Більше того, він хоче поширювати антиліберальні настрої на інші країни ЄС та за його межами, об'єднавшись із ультраконсервативним ідеологом Стівеном Бенноном та міністром внутрішніх справ Італії Маттео Сальвіні.

"Як і Дональд Трамп, Орбан не приховує своєї зневаги до міжнародного порядку та захоплюється авторитарним стилем правління Володимира Путіна і Реджеп Ердогана", – пише бельгійський політик в іншій статті для CNN.

Вергофстадт нагадує, що партія Орбана підписала угоду про співпрацю з "Єдиною Росією" президента РФ Володимира Путіна у 2016 році.

Саме тому, продовжує автор публікації, у найближчі тижні і місяці міжнародна спільнота – і зокрема Сполучені Штати – повинні прислухатися до цього попередження та діяти: уряд Угорщини є загрозою для міжнародного порядку.

Європа та США мають моральне зобов'язання втрутитися. Ми не можемо залишатися осторонь, дозволивши популістським, крайнім правим силам перетягнути демократичні європейські держави на орбіту Володимира Путіна та підірвати післявоєнні міжнародні норми. Незручна правда полягає в тому, що в нинішніх умовах Угорщині неможливо буде приєднатися до Європейського Союзу. Орбан відкрито сказав, що хоче знищити проект. Це не в інтересах Америки чи ЄС. Нам потрібно зупинити його – зараз, 
– закликає Вергофстадт.

Чому Угорщина може втратити право голосу у Раді ЄС?Стаття 7 Договору про Європейський Союз передбачає застосування до країни-члена санкцій, включаючи позбавлення права голосу у Раді ЄС, за порушення основоположних демократичних цінностей.

У Європарламенті зазначають, що Будапешт має серйозні проблеми з дотриманням правил Союзу. Йдеться, зокрема, про функціонування конституційної та виборчої систем та незалежність судочинства. Також представники Європарламенту вважають, що у країні складна ситуація із корупцією та свободою слова.

Європарламент також звинувачує Угорщину у недотриманні прав меншин, зокрема ромів та євреїв, а також фундаментальних прав мігрантів, шукачів притулку та біженців.


           Comment on A Month of Islam in America: August 2018 by Allan Kaplan       Cache   Translate Page      
With Sharia Law and the presence of legal Muslims in the USA are 3.4 million and growing. Fastest growing religion in the USA is Islam according to the Buueau of Statistics. Let's look at the realities without getting too emotional and riled up with hate and false understandings. Among the 3.4 million Muslims in the USA,"study shows that those born the “travel ban” countries had an incarceration rate of 0.32 per cent, compared to 1.54 per cent of the native-born Americans".as a proportion of the Muslim-American population (46 out of 3 million in 2016, or approximately 1 in 65,000).number of murders in the United States in a given year, as a proportion of the entire US population (17,250 out of 323,127,513 in 2016, or approximately 1 in 18,000 ). Let's see why Muslim "Refugees" are flooding Europe and a very small percentage to the USA. Why there were no Muslims invading Europe and coming to the USA before 911? What turned these Muslims overnight to run to the West? Let assume we Americans living in small, medium and large cities of the good ole USA living and minding our own business. Suddenly one night Russians or Israelis or any other country start bombing our cities and towns and we have no place to flee to except run to the closest bordering countries with the USA. Let's say we run to Mexico and Canada. And after getting in Mexico and Canada we start living the way we lived in the USA before we started to flee as we were being bombed night and day. The way we treat the Mexicans at home here in the good ole USA, is not gonna be liked by the locals of Mexico cities for disrupting their ways of living. Neither would Canada to a small degree despite our common language, religion and culture. They already resent us as bullying Americans! Since we Americans bombed the hell out of major cities of Arab countries where we are invading them, left no choice but to flee to the closest nex country out of the bombing ranges. Most of these fleeing families of Muslims ended up fleeing to the closest bordering country like Italy, Greece, Spain, Hungary etc. Very few (less than one 30th of one percent) made it to the USA as well. And that's we are dealing with. Just think cool mindedly and we all can understand this crazy talks of "animals" etc. By the way most of these "animal muslims" are more educated than us the average Americans. Most of these "animal Muslims" have degrees in science and medicine and this is why we find doctors, engineers, IT guys and gals from these Muslim countries in our hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, manufacuring, military, defense, space etc etc. So instead of anti-Muslim propaganda by those with special interest and connected with special Israel groups to make the Muslims look like aliens from a different planet, we deal with them everyday in the above institution without a trace of them being terrorists and Sharia police!

          The Real Contagion Threat Is Political      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Tom Luongo,

The real danger to the current institutional order was just demonstrated in Sweden. While I’ve talked at length about the potential financial contagion stemming from the implosion of multiple emerging market currencies it is the growing political crisis in Europe that will shape our future.

Sweden is The Land where Socialism Works, or so I keep getting told by ignorant leftists who cling to the power fantasy that central planning is the only way to make the trains run on time.

Central planning does do that, but only to deliver people into the nightmare of social disorder brought on by the disruption of the natural flow of capital.

Venezuela, South Africa, Soviet Union, post WWII Britain ... you get the idea.

But, the effects of the collectivist mindset are far more pernicious than those extreme examples.  And it is important we understand how little policies grow into big problems over time due to shaping people’s decisions through government edicts.

Corps Insanity

There is no better example for what I’m talking about than the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  A completely useless organization which sucks up billions in tax money to straighten rivers, build dams and alter the landscape to fit the needs of whoever paid Congress the most in lobbying money that year.

They engage in projects that cannot easily be done in the free market, nor should be done. But their activity creates downstream effects from their meddling which multiply over years and lead to problems which are orders of magnitude larger than they would have ever become naturally.

The Red Tides occurring off the Florida coast now are a political cudgel being swung at Governor Rick Scott to prevent him from moving up to U.S. Senator over his ‘environmental record.’  Now I’m no fan of Skeletor, as we call him down here, but these charges are simply grandstanding.

Because anyone who has an ounce of decency, intellectual honesty or passing acquaintance with history knows that the seeds of South Florida’s environmental nightmares are a product of the Corps of Engineers altering the landscape to serve Big Sugar and Big Corn.

These are two crops we shouldn’t even be growing (along with Soy and rapeseed) no less subsidizing due to their horrific effects on human health and development.  And this is another downstream effect of government meddling.

The real epidemic in the U.S. sapping our national wealth is not the rise of opioid use (though terrible) or the trade deficit it is diabetes and auto-immune diseases brought on by two generations of bad diet and ruinous food.

Health care and Big Pharma cost us trillions in easily avoided health problems due to the erroneous idea that human dietary needs are well-served by eating like my goats.

They aren’t.  Hell, even my goats spend most of their lives in ketosis.

This, again, is a product of government meddling into our food choices by diverting capital via farm subsidies and other bureaucratic structures built through the collective action of the ballot box.

So, a $200 million river straightening project turns into a multi-generational multi-trillion dollar loss of productive capital trying to keep people alive a little longer after a lifetime of eating like pigs being fattened for slaughter.

Okay, maybe that was the plan overall.

Rising Tides, Falling Boats

But, back to Sweden.  The results from the Swedish elections are another data point that populism is, well, popular.  The surge in popularity of the Sweden Democrats was strong enough to throw into flux the formation of a new government as support for the ruling Social Democrats has collapsed.

Where have we heard this story before?  Oh, only like all over freaking Europe.

What started with Brexit, carried across the pond to Trump, and spread to the continent in Italy, France, Poland, Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania, Russia, the Czech Republic and Germany which has now crossed back over the Baltic Sea to Sweden.

And still the political Left refuses to acknowledge the legitimacy of the concerns of voters, clinging desperately to the narrative that this is simply fringe ‘alt-right’ or ‘far-right Nazism’ rearing its head in an adolescent ab reaction to their very sensible and humanitarian policies.

They are supported in this delusion by the architects of the immigration nightmare in Europe who are quick to label anything vaguely sniffing of cultural pride as ‘extremism’ to shame apolitical and conscientious folks into staying within this failing paradigm of cultural suicide.

It is not working and thank the gods for it.

Whether the Sweden Democrats’ share of the vote is large enough for them to enter the government is irrelevant in the end.  Sweden’s political system is backward, but, hey, who am I to judge.

No one, actually, and that is the point.

The surge in popularity is what matters. And if they are excluded and things in Sweden continue as they are, then it will only serve up an even bigger voter backlash the next time they go to the polls if the government can even survive that long.

What’s is relevant is the contagion brought on by the downstream effects of one government intervention begetting a complete overhaul of the political landscape.

Europe is balkanizing.

Potential Post-EU map of Europe: Source @scottskingharry

Cultural Suicide Postponed

National cultures and community pride are sources of societal strength. The proponents of the Open Society and cultural homogenization are tone-deaf to the realities of forcing change because it is ‘the right thing to do’ or ‘the right thing to advocate.’

All it does is betray their totalitarian urge to force people they look down on to be better by first demonizing them for being racist and then acting out their own racism by forcing on their political opponents a life they do not want.

And the minute these long-suffering, abused people stand up for themselves and say, “No more” to their once peaceful communities being torn asunder by acid-throwing, gang-raping, rudderless immigrant males their reaction is to cry, “Racist!”

But that’s not working anymore.  What is working is the two-edged sword of political power.  Those that live by it will eventually hang from the rafters by it unless they willingly step aside and admit defeat with a modicum of grace and humility.

Given the reactions from the politically powerful all across Europe and the U.S. to this critical shift in the political landscape that is the last thing on their minds.

And that’s the most tragic irony of this entire period of history.  The very people who champion communitarianism and democracy as their highest ideal fear the power they have used so indiscriminately will be used against them when they lose it.

And their losses are mounting.

That’s what is inflaming their hatred and violence.  Abject terror of the backlash.  It is why this political contagion is the catalyst for global financial and economic collapse.  It’s already here in the form of emerging market upheaval. Faith in the institutions which circumscribe our lives is what props up currencies and, ultimately, asset values.

Politics got us into this mess.  It will not get us out of it.  The Great Reset is coming.  And you need to be prepared.

Dear Luboš,

The only thing Theresa May is capable of is fuckwitted treachery. I told you what she was like a long time ago.

I wouldn’t piss on her if she were on fire. Or pretty much any of the other 650 goons in that shithouse in Westminster.

What we need is another fucking Oliver Cromwell. We need to gut the place and wipe it clean of the scum.

          : Rain in the north - Showers in the south, 12 Set - 05:43      Cache   Translate Page      

High temperatures maintained in the south and east, albeit with showers. Cooler to the north with some rain Wednesday Showers in eastern Spain, some heavy. Drier for the rest of Spain and Portugal with good spells of sunshine. The showers extend through the Balearics as well as Corsica and Sardinia. Italy should be fair with sunny spells and feeling warm. Showers affecting Greece and Portugal, again some of these will be heavy. France has a mix of sunshine and scattered showers. Cloud and some showery rain extends over northern Germany and the Low Countries. Poland, southern Germany, Austria and Hungary should all be dry with sunny spells. Thundery showers forming in Switzerland. Denmark will be rather cloudy with some showery rain. Breezy with rain and showers in the Baltic States. Finland will be windy with further showers. Drier in Sweden and windy. Norway will be unsettled and windy with rain, some heavy. Very warm or hot across Central and Southern Europe, temperatures typically in the high 20s to low 30s and locally exceeding 35C in parts of the south. Becoming progressively cooler further north, especially in the rain over Norway.

Thursday Isolated showers for the north and far south of Spain and the Balearics but staying dry with spells of sunshine across much of Portugal and Spain. Some sunshine but also showers, locally, heavy in Corsica Sardinia and Italy but dry into the Adriatic. Sunshine for Greece with early showers dying out but showers develop over Turkey, especially in central and northern parts with a risk of thunder. Early rain over the Low Countries and Northern France clears to give some sunshine but heavy showers are likely towards the east and south. Thundery showers for Austria and Switzerland, possibly extending into the south of Poland and Germany but dry with sunny spells further north. Further east and south, including towards the Black Sea coast it will be largely dry and sunny. Rainy over western and southern Norway but dry for much of the time over Scandinavia and the Baltic States, with only isolated showers. Lower temperatures sink a little further south into some central parts but the south remains very warm.

"They came up with a solution: Use European funds to help the migrants live in these depopulated regions.

“Madrid is the point of arrival of a lot of these people and the first thing to do is help them. We have to welcome them because we can’t let them live on the streets”, assured Carmena.

Ska Keller also announced that his EU Parliament’s group will present a resolution in October that will unlock European funds to afford M. Carmena’s solution.

The socialist mayor earlier called migrants “heroes who follow their dreams” and migration “a phenomenon extraordinarily positive for all societies.”

Carmena’s announcement comes during the battle between the EU and Hungary, in which Viktor Orban’s government now faces the triggering of Article 7 against his country, after the parliament’s vote on Wednesday.

This could block Hungary’s access to EU funds, which are the country’s first revenue."

(Doanh nghiệp) - Nếu như dự án còn tiềm ẩn nhiều nguy cơ gây ô nhiễm môi trường thì chủ đầu tư là TKV phải chịu trách nhiệm.


Bộ TN-MT chỉ có trách nhiệm giám sát
Theo thông tin trên báo chí, mới đây Bộ Tài nguyên và Môi trường (TN-MT) đã có báo cáo tổng kết, đánh giá hiệu quả đầu tư thí điểm 2 dự án bauxite Tân Rai và Nhân Cơ gửi Bộ Công Thương tổng hợp, báo cáo Thủ tướng Chính phủ.
Báo cáo nêu rõ, trong quá trình sản xuất, dự án đã xảy ra sự cố 3 lần nhưng được khắc phục kịp thời. Bộ Tài nguyên và Môi trường cho rằng ''trong tương lai, dự án vẫn tiềm ẩn nhiều nguy cơ về ô nhiễm và sự cố môi trường có thể xảy ra''.
Trao đổi với Đất Việt về thông tin trên, ngày 21/2, ông Tăng Thế Cường - Chánh văn phòng Bộ TN-MT cho biết: "Việc xử lý và đưa ra các phương án tiếp theo là bên Tập đoàn Công nghiệp Than - Khoáng sản Việt Nam (TKV) đảm nhận còn bên Bộ chỉ giám sát, kiểm tra, chỉ ra các tồn tại ở các dự án.
Bây giờ khi đã có kết luận thì bên TKV có trách nhiệm thực hiện rồi sau đó chúng tôi sẽ kiểm tra sau".
Cũng chia sẻ thêm, ông Trần Quý Kiên - Thứ trưởng Bộ TN-MT cho biết: "Vấn đề này Bộ đã phân công cho Tổng cục môi trường làm tổ đặc cách giám sát thường xuyên cùng với TKV và địa phương.
Loi thang ve 2 du an bauxite: TKV co muon dung?
Hai dự án bauxite Tây Nguyên đối diện với nhiều nguy cơ ô nhiễm
Thực hiện chỉ đạo của Thủ tướng Chính phủ Tổng cục môi trường cũng đã thành lập tổ giám sát thường xuyên mọi hoạt động của hai dự án, kể cả những nguy cơ có thể xảy ra.
Chính vì thế về vấn đề này, bên phía Tổng cục môi trường nắm các thông tin sát hơn, cụ thể hơn".
Đừng cố đấm ăn xôi
Đưa ra quan điểm về vấn đề này, PGS.TS Nguyễn Xuân Khiển - Nguyên Viện trưởng Viện khoa học địa chất và khoáng sản cho biết: "Tôi thấy kết luận của Bộ TN-MT là hoàn toàn chính xác. Tôi không bất ngờ vì theo tôi việc đưa ra chỉ là sớm hay muộn.
Như tôi đã từng nói với công nghệ sản xuất lạc hậu của Trung Quốc thì còn tiềm ẩn nhiều nguy cơ về môi trường, dù có khắc phục thì cũng chỉ là giải pháp tình thế, không bền vững.
Còn điểm quan trọng nhất vẫn là công nghệ, cũng giống như đi khám bệnh muốn khỏi thì phải tìm nguyên nhân chứ không phải triệu chứng".
Về trách nhiệm cho những nguy cơ sẽ xảy ra trong tương lai theo ông Khiển chủ đầu tư chính là TKV phải gánh chịu tất cả về hiệu quả của dự án đó và lên kế hoạch, đưa ra các giải pháp khắc phục sự cố có thể xảy ra, dưới sự giám sát của Bộ TN-MT.
"Theo tôi, bất cứ dự án nào thí điểm mà không hiệu quả thì nên dẹp bỏ luôn để tránh việc phải chịu thêm thua lỗ, nhất là về tài chính khi ngân sách nhà nước đang còn khó khăn trăm bề. Mặt khác, đời sống người dân cũng không bị tác động và lo lắng trước mối nguy hại rình rập từng ngày.
Bởi vì ban đầu khi ký phê duyệt triển khai dự án Chính phủ cũng nói rõ là thí điểm, chứ không phải khai thác bauxite để làm kinh tế, mà thí điểm bị lỗ, sự cố môi trường nhiều thì không cần làm nữa.
Thế hệ về sau trong tương lai sẽ có những cải tiến chống được việc thất thoát tài nguyên, giải quyết vấn đề môi trường, còn công nghệ lạc hậu như hiện nay thì không bao giờ đáp ứng được mục tiêu hiệu quả kinh tế và đảm bảo môi trường.
Nói thẳng ra là đừng nên cố đấm ăn xôi, tôi đã nói nhiều lần về 6 vấn đề bất cập không nên triển khai dự án bauxite Tây Nguyên trong thời điểm hiện tại, chưa làm thì tài nguyên vẫn còn đó", ông Khiển khẳng định.
Nên dừng dự án
Ở góc độ khác, trong báo cáo của Bộ TN-MT có yêu cầu các bộ: Xây dựng, Khoa học và Công nghệ xem xét, hướng dẫn chủ dự án xử lý khối lượng lớn bùn đỏ, tro xỉ thải để tái sử dụng các loại chất thải này nhằm giảm nguy cơ ô nhiễm môi trường và tăng hiệu quả kinh tế cho dự án.
Theo vị chuyên gia trên, hồ bùn đỏ chính là nguy cơ tiềm ẩn rủi ro rõ ràng nhất của dự án trên, đây là quả bom nổ chậm với vùng hạ du, ô nhiễm nước ngầm vùng xung quanh. Thêm nữa, vừa qua lượng bột trắng bị phát tán, mà các giải pháp xử lý mới chỉ là tạm thời.
Cho nên dự báo một tương lai vừa ô nhiễm bầu không khí, ô nhiễm mạch nước ngầm.
"Tôi nhắc lại quan điểm của riêng tôi là nên dẹp bỏ để tránh thiệt hại về nhiều mặt. Còn kiến nghị tái sử dụng chất thải của nhà máy bauxite mà Bộ TN-MT đưa ra chỉ là nước đôi, vẫn đồng ý cho triển khai nhưng với điều kiện đảm bảo môi trường.
Thế nhưng việc tái sử dụng các loại chất thải theo tôi là không làm được, với điều kiện thiết bị như hiện nay cực kỳ khó khăn.
Tôi nói ngay một nghiên cứu về sử dụng bùn đỏ làm trong phòng thí nghiệm được đánh giá có kết quả tốt nhưng đó là quy mô nhỏ, còn triển khai dạng công nghiệp chắc chắn không được, đó là câu trả lời vì sao các nước tiên tiến không làm việc đó.
Công trình đó chỉ là chữa ngượng chứ không giải quyết vấn đề gì, vì nó chỉ là quy mô phòng thí nghiệm, khác với triển khai thực tế nhiều yếu tố chi phối. Hay nói ngay như các dự án bauxite của Hungary, Australia, Brazil họ vẫn phải để bùn đỏ lại rồi xử lý, chứ không tái chế được", ông Khiển khẳng định.

Qua phát biểu của Bộ trưởng Phạm Khôi Nguyên tại diễn đàn Quốc hội, cử tri hiểu được ý chí của ông là quyết theo canh bạc bauxite cho đến đồng vốn cuối cùng của Nhà nước. Đây là một trong những vụ việc hy hữu có sự gắn bó chặt chẽ giữa bên quản lý là Nhà nước với TKV là nhà doanh nghiệp, theo kiểu nhất hô bá ứng.
Chúng tôi gọi đây là canh bạc, mà không ghi nhận đây là một dự án đầu tư kinh doanh khai thác khoáng sản, bởi nếu là dự án phải có phương án kinh doanh được lập đàng hoàng, có báo cáo khả thi, có đánh giá toàn diện xong mới triển khai. Vụ bauxite này, hiệu quả thế nào thì phải làm mới biết – như lời ông Đoàn Văn Kiển. Ông Kiển còn công khai cho biết: đánh quả này thì cũng chỉ đảm bảo là 5 ăn 5 thua!
Đối với bóng đá, khi đã vào vòng bảng, cho dù biết thua cũng phải đá, vì bỏ cuộc sẽ bị phạt. Nhưng trong hoạt động kinh doanh, chẳng ai bỏ vốn ra kinh doanh để mong được hòa hay chịu lỗ. Một phương án kinh doanh khả thi được chấp nhận, thì hiệu quả kinh tế bao giờ cũng được đặt lên hàng đầu. Tiếp đó, các vấn đề khác mới tiếp tục bỏ lên bàn cân để cân đo đong đếm, sao cho tất cả đều ổn, mới làm.
Đằng này, ông Kiển làm ăn theo kiểu bác thằng bần! Tim đen của TKV thì hàng trăm bài báo của các nhà khoa học đã vạch và đã chứng minh bằng số liệu hẳn hoi. Thế còn Bộ trưởng Phạm Khôi Nguyên, trong vụ này sao lại hăng say làm vậy?
Có các khả năng sau đây:
1/ Ông là người thừa hành. Chính phủ quyết và hô rồi, ông chỉ còn việc vác búa xông lên, không thể nói khác, không thể làm khác. Tình thế của ông lúc này là hô thật to và nướng quân vô tội vạ để bảo toàn ghế cho ông. Quân trong trường hợp này là đồng vốn của Nhà nước, chú thích của tác giả cho rõ nghĩa, chứ không viết kiểu 50/50 như ông Kiển ở TKV! Dư luận không ngạc nhiên khi ông đặt vấn đề yêu cầu TKV tăng vốn đầu tư.
2/ Nếu mất hay lỗ, thì đó là vốn nhà nước chứ ông có bỏ ra đâu mà sợ. Ông không hăng hái xông lên bây giờ có khi ông mất ghế. Ông yêu cầu TKV dốc thêm vốn liếng ra cho ông chơi canh bạc này, để ông được chơi, để ông bảo toàn chiếc ghế nhất thời của ông
Khốn khổ ở chỗ, vốn liếng của TKV là tiền của dân nhờ ông Nhà nước giữ hộ!
Ông Bộ trưởng Nguyên khẳng định: Nước và bùn thải từ khâu tuyển quặng sẽ được thu hồi, không đổ xuống phía hạ lưu như các nhà khoa học lo lắng. Riêng bùn đỏ, bộ đã yêu cầu Tập đoàn Công nghiệp than và khoáng sản VN (TKV) bổ sung thiết kế lớp đáy hồ chứa để chống thẩm thấu và nâng khả năng kháng động đất từ cấp 5 lên cấp 7, bổ sung thiết bị quan trắc tự động...
Thưa ông Phạm Khôi Nguyên, xin ông cho biết giải pháp kháng động đất từ cấp 5 lên cấp 7 cho lớp đáy hồ chứa để chống thẩm thấu thì làm thế nào? Tôi đoán chắc ông cũng không hiểu việc này. Người ta bịp ông, ông đưa ra để thuyết phục Quốc hội ư?
Hiện nay, người ta chỉ mới có giải pháp kháng động đất cho các công trình xây dựng tĩnh, có kết cấu và sàn xây dựng vừa phải. Ví dụ như đập thủy điện Hòa Bình và Sơn La đã được thiết kế để kháng chấn động đất tới cấp 8, chủ yếu là chỗ thân đập. Một số chung cư cao tầng cũng đã được tính kháng chấn tới cấp 6, cấp 7. Đối với đập Thủy điện Hòa Bình và Sơn La, để kháng chấn, người ta phải ép sâu hàng trăm mét cọc bê tông xuống. Còn đối với các khu nhà chung cư cao tầng, để kháng chấn, người ta cũng phải ép cọc bê tông sâu hàng chục mét, sau đó đổ móng bè giằng móng và nhiều thao tác kỹ thuật khác rồi mới xây công trình lên.
Ông đã bị chúng nó lừa rồi, ông Bộ trưởng ơi!
Đối với hồ chứa bùn đỏ rộng hàng trăm ha, ngang với diện tích của cả một quận nội thành, thế mà nói sẽ thiết kế, xây dựng để nó có khả năng kháng chấn cấp 5 tới cấp 7! Có mà nằm mơ.
Tất nhiên, nếu muốn vẫn có thể làm, tức là phải ép cọc bê tông, đổ móng bè... Còn với 60 cm đất sét với một lớp vải chống thấm như TKV trình bày trên VTV, thì xin lỗi, làm sao mà kháng chấn được cấp 5 đến cấp 7? Còn nếu làm đúng quy trình, ép cọc bê tông, đổ giằng móng bè thì giá đầu tư sẽ lên bao nhiêu? Và con số âm lù lù trong bài toán lỗ lãi còn làm sao mà dùng lời lấp liếm cho được? Không đâu! Cùng lắm thì TKV sẽ cho thêm hai lớp vải chống thấm và tăng độ dày của tầng đất sét cho an toàn chứ gì???
Người ta mới dùng đất sét, vải chống thấm mà giá thành theo ông Bộ trưởng Vũ Huy Hoàng báo cáo trước Quốc hội, đã lên tới 362 USD/tấn alumin (nhôm oxit). Trong khi đó, cũng theo báo cáo của Bộ trưởng Vũ Huy Hoàng, giá nhôm trên thị trường hiện nay là 1426 USD/tấn, đồng nghĩa với giá alumin sẽ tương đương là 1426 USD x 14% (lấy cao nhất) = 199,64 USD/tấn, làm tròn số là 200 USD/tấn cho dễ nhớ.
Như vậy, hai công trình Tân Rai và Nhân Cơ, nếu theo tính toán hiện nay, đã lỗ (362 USD – 200 USD) x 1.200.000 tấn/năm = 194,4 triệu USD/năm. Nếu tăng thêm đầu tư và gia cố hồ chống thấm có khả năng chống cả dư chấn động đất như ông Bộ trưởng Nguyên đề nghị, thì lỗ sẽ lớn hơn thế, lớn hơn 194,4 triệu USD/năm!
Người ta bịp Bộ trưởng để ông chiêu an Quốc hội, và cũng là để lừa lấy tiền dân nướng vào canh bạc bauxite mà thôi. Chắc chắn TKV trong thực tế sẽ không làm thêm gì để chống động đất. Nhưng đảm bảo, người ta sẽ quyết toán một lượng tiền ngang với hệ thống chống động đất của đập thủy điện Sơn La, Hòa Bình cho mà xem. Còn thua lỗ bao nhiêu, khai thác bán được bao nhiêu, đã có dân chịu. Dân làm chủ mà! Nhân dân sẽ cố gắng trồng rau, nuôi gà, chăn lợn để góp tiền lại cho các ông chơi canh bạc bauxite.
Về hiệu quả kinh tế, hạn chế tác hại của bùn đỏ, ông Bộ trưởng Nguyên nổ tiếp: Gần đây các nước như Trung Quốc, Brazil hoặc Úc đã nghiên cứu và đã tạo ra công nghệ hoàn toàn sử dụng bùn đỏ để tận thu sắt vì trong bùn đỏ này có tới 45-50% Fe2O3 (ôxit sắt) và những loại khoáng sản khác. Chúng tôi đã cho chạy mô hình và cơ bản đã giải quyết được”.
Cách đây 2 tháng, tôi có dịp lên công tác tại Cao Bằng theo ngả từ Lạng Sơn. Tôi đã chứng kiến cảnh một nhà máy luyện thép đã bỏ ra hàng trăm tỷ xây dựng và mua thiết bị về để đấy không vận hành được. Trong khi đó cách đó không xa, TKV cũng đang ồ ạt triển khai san ủi mặt bằng rộng chừng 30-40 ha để xây dựng một nhà máy luyện thép!
Như chúng ta biết, quặng thép Cao Bằng có hàm lượng thép cao, từ 60-70% và mỏ lại lộ thiên, nhưng ngành luyện thép không đầu tư được. Nguyên nhân nhà máy kia không dám hoạt động là bởi, giá quặng sắt tại Cao Bằng người ta khai thác thổ phỉ bán cho Trung Quốc qua con đường chui đã lên đến 250 USD/tấn. Giá một tấn than cốc là 6,5 triệu đồng/ tấn. Để luyện ra một tấn thép, giá đầu vào riêng hai nguyên liệu chính đã lên trên 10 triệu đồng, chưa kể tiền khấu hao máy móc và nhân công. Một nhà máy không rõ ai đầu tư, đã im ỉm khóa, không dám hoạt động vì lẽ đó.
Anh bạn tôi cho biết, không rõ TKV lại tiếp tục xây nhà máy luyện thép tại Cao Bằng, sẽ tính toán làm ăn như thế nào? Có khả năng sao không mua lại cái nhà máy luyện thép đang luyện muỗi ấy?
Ông Bộ trưởng Nguyên lại tính chuyện luyện thép từ bùn đỏ ư? Ông căn cứ vào dữ liệu từ Pháp và Trung Quốc có hàm lượng từ 45-50% để khẳng định là nên làm theo sẽ có hiệu quả. Trữ lượng thép trong quặng lên tới 60-70% mà làm còn chưa ra ăn, đằng này lấy bùn đỏ ra mà luyện thép, thì chỉ có mà mơ! Sao ông Bộ trưởng Nguyên lại hay nằm mơ thế?  

Canh bạc bauxite ơi!Em đi đâu, Về đâu?  

Các ông cứ nhắm mắt làm liều, không chịu tính toán, thậm chí các ông không thèm nghe tính toán. Vì các ông đánh bạc, chứ đâu có kinh doanh. Trong đánh bạc, thành bại ngoài may rủi đỏ đen ra, yếu tố quyết định là: cờ gian, bạc bịp!
Bộ trưởng Nguyên cho biết: Sẽ cố gắng làm tốt nhiệm vụ của mình để làm sao mô hình Tân Rai và Nhân Cơ sẽ là mô hình thực hiện tốt vấn đề môi trường, để sau này tổng kết đánh giá và nhân rộng.... Cử tri có thể hiểu câu nói này của ông Bộ Trưởng theo ý rằng, cố gắng lừa tốt vụ này để còn làm tiếp vài vụ nữa rồi về hưu là vừa, còn tội vạ đâu có người khác gánh; nhân dân giống như đất rừng Tây Nguyên, sẽ lãnh đủ những điều mà các ông đang sử dụng nó làm chiếu bạc...
Chính lúc này chúng tôi lại muốn mượn lại câu nói của nhà báo Tiệp Khăc nổi tiếng Fuxic: Hỡi các đại biểu Quốc hội, hỡi cử tri, hãy cảnh giác với những lời có cánh, những luận chứng có cánh được phát ra từ miệng lưỡi của những con người như ông Phạm Khôi Nguyên – Bộ Trưởng Bộ Tài nguyên và Môi trường, ông Lê Dương Quang – Thứ trưởng Bộ Công thương, ông Đoàn Văn Kiển – Chủ tịch Tập đoàn Than và Khoáng sản Việt Nam!

Stones and Seeds Sown on the Lea – 
The Life and Letters of Lehighton’s Carl F. Strauch

“But as one passes the Cairn, one compulsively
drops his own little stones.”
                                                         ~Carl Strauch
This striking picture of Carl F. Strauch, with his trademark
pipe, was taken by then Lehigh student Lou Stoumen in
1939.  Stoumen would earn two Academy Awards in
documentary film making.  This photo won several
Lehigh Valley area awards.

Born to impoverished German immigrants in Jamestown, Carbon County, Carl F. Strauch may have lacked the pedigree of some in his field, but the depth and breadth of his literary acumen was undeniable.  His life’s work of research and analysis earned him the respect of most everyone who ever met him.
Carl Strauch visits family in Lehighton around 1915.

He published his book, Twenty-Nine Poems in 1932, at the wide-eyed age of twenty-four.  Frequently cited in masters’ theses and doctoral dissertations, he wrote dozens of scholarly articles published by the Emerson Society Quarterly and elsewhere.  

He was a nationally recognized authority on Ralph Waldo Emerson and wrote widely influential pieces on him as well as Whitman, J.D. Salinger, and Melville, especially on Moby Dick

He was the ever popular English professor at Lehigh University for forty years.  He was a stirring and dramatic professor, with a self-professed Socratic bent.  The impetus for his hiring from instructor to professor was initiated by the on-campus murder of English professor C. Wesley Phy.  Strauch subsequently filled Phy’s chair.

Among his many accolades and accomplishments, Strauch was among the few people entrusted with the key to Harvard’s Widener Houghton Library, the first repository of its kind in the nation devoted to the preservation and study of the original manuscripts and rare books from among America’s literary heritage, including Emerson and Thoreau. 
He spent the summer of 1942 at the Fogg Memorial Library in Boston by special permission of the Emerson family to investigate the personal correspondence of Emerson.  This unfettered access and intimate interaction with Emerson’s own papers and letters helped Strauch to be placed among the top three researchers of Emerson in the world.

Perhaps the capstone to his storied career was the posthumous resolution by the Emerson Society of Cambridge, Massachusetts.  The Society called Strauch “One of the few who met Henry David Thoreau’s high criterion, to serve with conscience as well as with body and mind.”

The inside flyleaf of Strauch's 1932 Twenty-Nine Poems
With a biting, and at times a withering wit, the ever apodictic Strauch, knew no limits in his ever upward-spiral toward mastery of the Romantics and Transcendentalists. 

The titles of just a few of Strauch’s essays and critiques themselves are thought-provoking: Kings in the Back Row: Meaning through Structure- A Reading of Salinger’s ‘The Catcher in the Rye’ (1961), The Year of Emerson’s Poetic Maturity: 1834 (Oct 1955), Emerson's New England Capitalist (1956), Emerson’s Unwilling Senator (1966), Romantic Harmony and the Organic Metaphor (handwritten copy), The Problem of Time and the Romantic Mode in Hawthorne, Melville, and Emerson, and Style in the American Renaissance (1970).

He was transformative.  He transcended himself. 

He was ever and simply Strauch.

Carl F. Strauch was the youngest of eleven children who grew to adulthood.  His father Heinrich was a butcher and immigrated to Tamaqua, Pennsylvania with his parents and his brother John in 1879 when he was twenty-one.  Strauch’s mother, Anna-Margaret Foesch, arrived with her brother Michael in 1887.  Heinrich and Anna-Margaret married on September 24th, 1888 at Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, on Tamaqua’s “Dutch Hill.”

Their first child, Strauch’s oldest sibling Maria (pronounced Mariah), my dear grandmother ‘Mary,’ was born there on October 3, 1889. 

The Strauchs struggled among the Sharp Mountain area miners.  Frequent strikes put a strain on everyone.  When Heinrich’s father John died in April 1898, the Strauch’s moved to Hacklebernie, a small mining village west of Mauch Chunk.  

The remote village rested between the Mammoth-vein coal quarry operations of Summit Hill and the coal transport hub town of Mauch Chunk.  Hacklebernie nestled along the hillside on the downhill run of the Switchback Railroad.

The portrait was said to be taken ahead of Lena's eventual death from consumption in October 1917.  Carl, the youngest sits between his parents with his favorite sister Margaret behind him.  His mother Anna-Margaret and sister Elizabeth finish out the front row.  Back row: Henry, Leonard, Kate, Louie, Willy, Mary, and Edwin.  Heinrich and Anna-Margaret met in Tamaqua after each had immigrated from Germany.  They lived in Hacklebernie for about two years and then for about twelve years in Lehighton.  After 1911, they moved to downtown Allentown where Heinrich opened his own butcher shop.

The famed Switchback’s eighteen-mile gravity railroad was a leading national tourist attraction of the time.  It was among the many topics discussed between Strauch and Weird Tales author H. P. Lovecraft. 

Carl Ferdinand Strauch was the last child born to Heinrich and Anna Margaret on September 25, 1908 while the family still resided in the Jamestown section of Lehighton.  By then, Heinrich worked in a “slaughter house” most likely Obert’s Packing House on First Street Lehighton.
Strauch's Father: Impassive as ever even
in his later years, Heinrich Strauch
was said to be a brooding, temperamental man.
Even the Strauch women were tall.  Here is Zach and Mary Rabenold (w/
hand over her mouth) along with her sister Kate and Floyd Harrier.  The
man in the center was a family friend from Dutch Hill, Fred Meder.
The girls, from tallest to smallest: Gladys Rabenold, Pauline, Arlene, and
Ruth Harrier.

As a young boy with a small stature, he grew to a giant from his books.
Carl Strauch as a young boy at his sister's
home in Lehighton around 1915.

Strauch remembered the moment he knew books would be his life.  “I stood only four feet in a family of tall, lean giants.”  His immersion into books was the result of a memorable pummeling he received in the neighborhood sand lot. 

Though only reaching to five-foot-nine as an adult, reading made him feel as though he were “seven feet, ten inches tall.” 

The other Strauchs were exceedingly tall.  The older men were over six feet.  Sisters Mary and Margaret were each over five feet eight. 

He was a man of high ideals.  His exacting standards were rooted deeply in the Lutheran faith, yet Strauch trembled not before any god.  To some, Strauch was god.  Former student and later longtime friend of Strauch, Professor Alex Liddie once said, “I was always in awe of him.”







If I was a Carpenter, and you were a Lady…”

Romance entered his life when he met Helen Dery on blind-date, a doubles tennis match in 1935.  She was the daughter of Austrian-born D. G. (Desiderius George) Dery.  Dery came to America in 1887 as a foreman to a New Jersey silk manufacturer.
 
A young and still prospering D. G. Dery
from the 1890s.
By 1919 Dery owned forty-two mills employing around 10,000 workers.  Eight of those mills were in the Lehigh Valley.  He was believed to be one of the the largest silk producers in the world.  He built a lavish Fifth and Pine Street home in Catasauqua with a ballroom, solarium, indoor pool, and a wing to house his art collection.  The 56-room mansion also had a basement taproom with leaded glass foundation windows.  The stained glass scenes depicted Native Americans in various pursuits of big Pennsylvania game animals. 
  
A man of many interests, D. G. had an observatory and a scientific research laboratory installed in 1917 as well as a false-paneled wall to conceal his writing room where he penned articles and novels. 

D. G. wrote at least two novels.  Under the Big Dipper was praised by H. L. Mencken as an “impressive first work of an unknown writer.” Another was entitled Jean Kressley.  Strauch became the perfect-fit son-in-law for Dery.
This Februrary 1924 article claimed Dery owned
"nearly sixty mills."  Dery's fortunes were in full
reversal by the end of 1922.

Strauch once said his father-in-law’s father was part of the landed gentry of Baja, Hungary.  “Not part of the nobility, but one step below it.”  The father took part in the Austrian revolution in 1848 and had to flee from the Russian troops sent in to quash the rebels.  From then on he had to seek refuge in a tiny corner of the empire.  But as fate would have it, it was where he met his wife. 

According to Strauch, D. G. Dery was a man of style and taste that reflected his Austrian-Hungarian upbringing.  “He was a gentleman of the old school.  I could never imagine him in blue-jeans.” 

By the 1920s, with world silk prices in drastic decline, Dery fell on hard times.  In a last dash to save his empire, he resorted to some creative accounting to prop up his holdings.  Soon he faced fraud charges and had to abandon his mansion.  He was forced to move to the smaller house across the street.  But his financial failure didn’t change the man.

He continued his astronomical observations, writings, and speaking engagements.  In his last days he moved into the Bethlehem home of Strauch and Helen, dying there in 1942.  With the property in receivership since the 1920s, the observatory was used by air raid wardens during the war.  Wiring was installed to sirens at the Phoenix Fire House from the mansion.
The disrepair and vandalism of the Dery mansion at Fifth and Pine Streets in Catasauqua in July 1942.  In the 1950s it was converted into luxury apartments, the ballroom and downstairs lounge/bar were available for wedding receptions.  In the 1980s, the Albert Moffa family attempted to restore it to its former grace and lived there for a short time.  However, it has once again fallen into disuse, as the property is far too expensive for a single owner to maintain.  See the After Notes section for some modern photos of the mansion as it appears today.

Dery’s wealth afforded him opportunities in art.  Of mutual interest to him and his wife and in-laws was their shared interests in the arts. D. G. Dery had an extensive collection, of which Strauch referred to as “sentimental” in theme.   Dery had a 17th century reliquary of Christ on the Cross, a Gothic Cross, a painting "Little Mother," and a Carrara marble statue known as the “Blind Girl,” modeled on a character in Bulwer-Lytton’s 19th century novel, “The Last Days of Pompeii.”  
D. G. Dery's art purchases made the news in
February 1912.

Dery’s taste reflected his upbringing in middle class 19th century Vienna.  “If he had put himself in the hands of an art expert, he would have been able to acquire Impressionists for almost nothing,” Strauch was once quoted in a 1984 article of Dery in the Morning Call.

And so began the life of the son of a several-times-over broke German butcher and the daughter of a wealthy, and soon to be broke, silk industry magnate.  Helen majored in art at the Harcum College in Bryn Mawr, was active in the Civic Little Theater, and spent considerable time engaged in extensive travel and study in Europe.

Harcum College yearbook.  It was at about this time
that she was studying the art of Europe.
She met Strauch shortly after her return. 

Both Helen and Strauch presented their work at a spring 1937 Muhlenberg College art show.  She entered pencil portraits and water colors, while he showed surrealistic charcoal and pen and ink masks.
From Allentown Call-Chronicle,
16 July 1933.

Strauch was known in circles from H. P. Lovecraft to H. L. Mencken and from W.H. Auden to Robinson Jeffers.  He considered these men to be his friends.

Mencken, who believed that every community produced a few people with clear superiority who distinguish themselves by their will and personal achievement, had a penchant for seeking out and affiliating himself with like-minded thinkers. Strauch expressed an almost familial bond with Mencken, to whom he described as his “friend, guide, and mentor.”

“A subtle chain of countless rings
The next unto the farthest brings;
The eye reads omens where it goes,
And speaks all languages the rose;
And, striving to be man, the worm
Mounts through all spires of form.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson from ‘Nature’
From the 1932 Muhlenberg yearbook the five students and their advisers who started the inaugural Phi Sigma Iota national
honor Romance language society.  Centered and bow-tied, the indefatigable Edward Fluck along with an equally smiling Carl F. Strauch to his left.

While a student at Muhlenberg in 1928, he along with five other students started the Lambda chapter of the Phi Sigma Iota, national honor Romance language society.  The fraternity was the first of its kind at Muhlenberg. 

Strauch received his B.A. from Muhlenberg in 1930 and immediately took his first job there as Assistant Librarian.  It was during this time that he developed a friendship with H. P. Lovecraft through their mutual friend, Dr. Harry K. Brobst.  Strauch earned his M.A. from Lehigh in 1934 and joined the Lehigh English department the same year.  On at least one occasion Strauch was welcomed into Lovecraft’s Providence Rhode Island home.
Before Email, Twitter, and Texting - Lovecraft sent
sketches of his new abode to Strauch.  And when Strauch
too moved to his new home in Bethlehem, he returned
sketches of his own to Lovecraft, including a schematic layout.

He attended Penn for graduate work in German, “But when the depression deepened for me I came home and enrolled at Lehigh…I was not following a Tennysonian Gleam.”  For me, “There was no Gleam.”

Though Lehigh didn’t have the prestige of “Swarthmore, Haverford, Amherst, or Williams,” he said his exposure to “high standards and good teaching began in 1933 at Lehigh.”

In 1934 Professor Robert M. Smith offered him a job, of which Strauch commented, “Happenstance was beginning to provide some footing.”  But it was a the tragic murder-suicide by Clow that changed Strauch’s gleam.

“It was a cruel quirk that led me to American Literature.”

This ‘cruel quirk’ took place at Lehigh’s Christmas-Saucon Hall on the morning of June 4th, 1936. 














News of Phy's murder
and Clow's suicide swept
the country, articles
appeared from Santa Cruz
 to Detroit to Altoona.  
This article came from the 
June 6, 1936 edition of
Indiana's
Journal and Courier paper.








Clow was a senior mining engineering major who was failing at least two classes.  One was metal-mining, the other was in Professor Phy’s English class.  On the night before the murder, Clow phoned Phy’s home and warned Phy’s wife with an ominous tone that his grade better be changed by 7:00 pm that night.

The next morning, he first went into the office of the mining professor but he wasn’t there.  So Clow proceeded to the office of Phy. 

A fraternity brother of Clow’s happened to be in Phy’s office taking an exam and witnessed the murder.  He heard them exchange words about re-examination but Phy stated he needed written permission from the dean to proceed. 

Then Clow said “Well” while he pulled the 38 revolver from his pocket.  Phy jumped up and shouted “No, you don’t!” while Clow fired two shots into his chest. 

Despite one of the shots hitting his heart, Phy was able to run down a flight of stairs to the infirmary and died at the feet of campus physician Dr. Raymond C. Bull.

On the floor above, Strauch opened his office door, which faced Phy’s, to find the body of Wesley Clow.  

At first, he thought he was hearing the popping of fireworks.  Realizing it was a full month before Independence Day and sensing something was amiss, he dashed into the hallway to find the stand-out Lehigh wrestler with a gunshot wound to his head. 

After seeing the gun and realizing Clow’s life had ceased by his own hand, Strauch phoned the police.

NO-ONE can dress up a far-right general election vote of 17.6 per cent as good news, but nor should the disappointment felt by Sweden’s Democrat fascists in suits be ignored. The misnamed Democrats had hoped the result would be still better, claiming that they could score as much as 30 per cent and replace the free-market conservative Moderate Party as the second party. Even mainstream opinion polls suggested the party, with its roots in Keep Sweden Swedish nazi extremism, could hit 24 per cent. The Moderates lost ground, as did the country’s largest party, the Social Democrats, but, alongside the Democrats’ surge from 12.9 per cent to 17.6, the Left party, which polled below 6 per cent in the 2006, 2010 and 2014 general elections, rose to 8 per cent. Its 28 seats, alongside the Greens’ depleted 15 and 101 for the Social Democrats, ought to ensure a continuation of Social Democrat Prime Minister Stefan Lofven’s government, whether as head of the erstwhile Red-Green Alliance or in some other guise. Both the Social Democrats and the Moderates borrowed elements from the Democrats’ anti-refugee programme in a forlorn attempt to spike the fascists’ rise. Yet the standing of Lofven’s party was assisted by principled anti-fascist activity backed by the Left, especially in the major cities. Where the right had previously controlled two of the main three cities, Stockholm and Gothenburg, all three, including Malmo, are now dominated by the Social Democrats, with the Left outscoring the Democrats in the capital. It is theoretically possible that the Moderates could, through a dirty deal with the Democrats, replace Lofven, but this is less likely than it would have been had the far-right carried the day with the kind of figures expected beforehand. Introducing far-right parties into government has already happened in northern Europe, specifically in Finland and Norway, mirroring stronger support for right-wing extremism in Italy, Hungary, Slovakia, Germany and elsewhere. This is partially explained by pundits as a reaction to governments accepting growing numbers of refugees from Syria, Afghanistan and various African countries heading to Europe through Libya. Yet the numbers of refugees arriving in Sweden and Germany or even Greece and Italy are as nothing compared to those fleeing imperialist wars and their consequences in Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq to Turkey, Lebanon or Jordan. Mainstream parties across Europe legitimise far-right parties’ programmes by giving credence, by imitation, to their ludicrous claims that taking in relatively small numbers of refugees undermines a country’s cultural identity or threatens to spark a crime wave. As ever, they proclaim personal opposition to racism and xenophobia but ascribe their bigotry to demands from “the public” — the working class. While some working people do indeed succumb to such negative phenomena, the reality in Sweden, as in all European states where a far-right surge has been witnessed, is that anti-racist opposition is co-ordinated by the left and the organised labour movement. So-called “moderate” centre-left/centre-right parties routinely replacing each other in government with no discernible qualitative change in policies bear huge responsibility for alienation expressed by working people faced by a neoliberal austerity agenda, whatever party is in office. Exploiting such alienation is easy for those seeking to divide people on the basis of skin colour, nationality or religion to assist their power-seeking ambitions. Sweden’s overall election result provides a negative example, but the opposite is true of the Left’s role in campaigning not only against xenophobia but for a socialist alternative to austerity. https://www.morningstaronline.co.uk/article/far-right-breakthrough-prevented-in-sweden

Replies: 4 Last poster: KuuKe at 13-09-2018 06:11 Topic is Open Astronomen hebben in de dataset van de K2-missie van de Kepler Space Telescope van de NASA twee exoplaneten ontdekt die rond een ster in de open sterrenhoop Praesepe draaien. Het gaat om twee zogenaamde mini-Neptunessen. De nieuw ontdekte exoplaneten dragen de aanduiding EPIC 211964830b en c, beide planeten zijn zogenaamde mini-Neptunessen – gasplaneten die kleiner zijn dan de planeten Uranus en Neptunus in ons eigen zonnestelsel. De binnenste planeet heeft een straal van ongeveer 2,3 * de Aarde en de buitenste planeet heeft een straal van 2,8 * de Aarde. De draaien met een periode van 5,8 respectievelijk 19,7 dagen in een hele nauwe baan om hun ster heen. De ster met de aanduiding EPIC 211964830 is een rode dwerg die een straal en een massa van ongeveer 47% van de Zon heeft. De ster bevindt zich aan de rand van de centrale kern van de open sterrenhoop M44 (ook bekend als NGC 2632 en Praesepe de Kribbe). Dit is een compacte open sterrenhoop bestaande uit ongeveer 1000 sterren. De sterrenhoop is ongeveer 550 lichtjaar van ons verwijderd en is zichtbaar in het sterrenbeeld Kreeft – Cancer.

          European Parliament to take punitive action against Hungary      Cache   Translate Page      

Updated 4.10pm The European Parliament voted on Wednesday to sanction Hungary for flouting EU rules on democracy, civil rights and corruption in an unprecedented step that left Prime Minister Viktor Orban isolated from powerful allies. Hungary said it would seek legal ways to challenge the 448-197 vote it described as "petty revenge". Delivering more than the two-thirds majority required as many of Orban's allies in the conservative party deserted him, the vote, however, has little chance of ending up with the ultimate penalty of Hungary being suspended from voting in the EU. If nothing else, its Polish ally would veto that. But the 197 votes cast against the parliament's first bid to launch the punitive process of the EU treaty's Article 7 highlighted the substantial minority of European opinion who see Orban as a crusader for the rights of nation states and ethnic majorities against rules of civic behaviour agreed in Brussels. Since sweeping to power in 2010, Orban, once a campaigner against Hungary's Soviet Communist overlords, has used his parliamentary majority to pressure courts, media and non-government groups in ways his opponents say breach EU rules.

          09/12 Links Pt2: Soviet Antisemitism in a British Guise; Interview with Colonel Richard Kemp; Artist turns Kassam rockets into flowers and mezuzahs      Cache   Translate Page      
From Ian:

Soviet Antisemitism in a British Guise
Most of all, there was the Soviet practice of wheeling out “citizens of Jewish nationality” to denounce Zionism as a “racist” tool of “imperialism.” In March 1983, the Soviet news agency TASS even published a definition of Zionism drawn up by the state-run “Jewish Anti-Zionist Committee” that read as follows:

“In its essence, Zionism is a concentration of extreme nationalism, chauvinism, and racial intolerance, justification of territorial seizure and annexation, armed adventurism, a cult of political arbitrariness and impunity, demagogy and ideological sabotage, sordid maneuvers and perfidy.”

To my mind, the most obvious question here to Jeremy Corbyn, The Morning Star, and those of a similar pedigree, is this: Is there anything in this Soviet definition of Zionism that you disagree with? Make no mistake, the answer is critically important, because it is exactly this characterization of Zionism that grounded both the USSR’s domestic persecution of its Jewish community, and its international alignment with Arab regimes and terrorist groups.

If the answer is to disagree with this formulation — highly unlikely, given that Corbyn himself was present at dozens of left-wing political gatherings during the 1970s and ’80s where Soviet and Arab antisemitic literature was distributed — then it is a disingenuous one. Because when Corbyn and those in his camp speak and write about the triangle of Jews, Zionism, and Israel, these are the terms in which they think, and have always thought.

That is why Corbyn’s house journal uses terms like “embittered fifth column” to describe their leader’s Jewish opponents — also used by Valery Emelyanov, an official Soviet ideologue, in 1978 to describe the “internal danger” posed by Soviet Jews. It’s why they have no qualms about saying that Jewish leaders opposed to Corbyn have “tasted blood,” despite the associations with the antisemitic blood libel that such a metaphor unleashes; then again, Vladimir Begun, a particularly toxic Soviet antisemite, wrote with great enthusiasm of the “bloodthirstiness” that was inherent in “Zionist gangsterism.”

Given the number of occasions that Corbyn publicly defended the Soviet regime — “The Soviet Union makes far greater nursery provision than this country” (1984), “I do not believe that [the USSR] has ever intended to invade western Europe” (1990) — he was clearly well aware of Moscow’s stance on all the key international matters of the time, as well as its propaganda practices. That doesn’t make him a spy, but it does make him an ideological fellow-traveler. And as The Morning Star has demonstrated by defending Corbyn with an ugly rhetorical assault on British Jews, that Soviet-inspired journey rolls on.

Yisreal Medad: An Exercise in Deconstruction
Deconstruction is a literary term indicating "a critique of the relationship between text and meaning ".

I found this poem, "Everything in Our World Did Not Seem to Fit" by Naomi Shihab Nye here. It is an example of "new Palestinian poetry". Excuse me, "Arab Palestinian poetry". Ms. Nye's family roots are in Sinjil, just down the road from Shiloh where I live.

I realized that here poem is a literal work of deconstruction - of history, of Jewish national identity, of politics and of simple rational logic.

Let's deconstruct that literary work.

Once they started invading us.
Actually, the Arabs invaded Eretz-Yisrael in 638 CE. Moreover, despite the loss of political independence, Jews continued to reside in the Land of Israel, if in small numbers depending on the conditions and crcumstances of the various occupiers.

Taking our houses and trees, drawing lines, pushing us into tiny places.
Throughout the Zionist resettlement enterprise, almost all the land was purchased from its owners.

It wasn’t a bargain or deal or even a real war.
The Arab terror war against Jews in 1920, 1921, 1929, 1936-1939 and the 1947 war was real as were the fedyeen and the PLO's launching in 1964.
Interview with Colonel Richard Kemp
A United Nations report on recent violent clashes along the Israel-Gaza border hasn’t been written yet, but international terrorism expert Richard Kemp already knows it will condemn Israel for defending its borders against armed hordes.

Kemp, a retired British army officer who has watched, and fought against, terrorism around the world for 30 years, will tell an audience in Hamilton Thursday that’s the traditional response of a world community that doesn’t want to face up to terrorism.

In an interview ahead of his appearance, Kemp said the recent attacks on the Gaza border were just the latest phase of ongoing efforts by the terrorist group Hamas to smash the Jewish state.

It’s a campaign built around Hamas’ standard tactic of sprinkling its terrorists among civilians in the hope Israel’s response will result in civilian deaths that can, in turn, spark international outrage against the country.

“By creating a situation of violent disorder, breaking through the fence and attacking Israeli communities Hamas hope to provoke Israel in the hope that Israel’s reaction will result in many of (Hamas’) own people being killed,” he said.

Kemp said the tactic has worked to a degree – even fair-minded citizens around the world who understand a country’s right to defend itself are made uncomfortable by the sight of civilians being shot by Israeli soldiers.

“Even if people are against Israel, most sane people can understand that a country has to respond if it is attacked, if rockets are launched at it or attack tunnels are dug underneath it. Most people can accept that even if they don’t like it,” Kemp said.

“Even if they accept that they can’t understand how a civilized country like Israel can gun down people involved in peaceful demonstrations. We know they’re not peaceful demonstrations, but that is how it’s portrayed.”



New York Times Stumbles in a Strange Front-Page Antisemitism Story
A front-page New York Times news article appears under the headline “U.S. Revives Rutgers Bias Case In New Tack on Anti-Semitism.”

The Times article hypes what it describes as a “significant policy shift.” It claims that the federal education department and its assistant secretary, Kenneth Marcus, “put the weight of the federal government behind a definition of anti-Semitism that targets opponents of Zionism.”

It goes on to claim that the Education Department “adopted a hotly contested definition of anti-Semitism that included ‘denying the Jewish people the right to self-determination’ by, for example, ‘claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor’ and ‘applying double standards by requiring of’ Israel ‘a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.'”

It’s extremely strange that The New York Times would all of a sudden describe this particular definition of anti-Semitism as “hotly contested.” The Times itself, as recently as this month, published two articles describing the exact same definition as “internationally accepted.”

On September 4, the Times published a Reuters dispatch: “LONDON — Britain’s opposition Labour Party adopted an internationally accepted definition of anti-Semitism on Tuesday.” An Associated Press dispatch published by the Times the same day begins, “LONDON — Britain’s main opposition Labour Party on Tuesday adopted an internationally recognized definition of anti-Semitism.” On July 26, a Times-written article from London also referred to the same definition as “internationally accepted.”

Got that? When the British Labour Party adopts the definition, the Times describes it, accurately, as “internationally accepted.” Yet when the US government tries to enforce the definition on an American college campus, then all of a sudden the Times describes the definition as “hotly contested.” In fact, the definition is internationally accepted everywhere except in The New York Times newsroom, or at least in that portion of it responsible for the Rutgers article.
Sightless in Bethlehem
“Israel made me hate it” has long been a common theme among Jewish critics of Israel. In fact, New York Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman practically built his career out of it, winning a Pulitzer Prize for a book based on the claim that he was an uncritical supporter of Israel until he covered the 1982 Lebanon war, where he saw outrageous Israeli behavior that changed his mind.

That version of Friedman’s biography turned out to be a fabrication. In 1990, pro-Israel activists revealed that he actually had been a hostile critic of Israel all the way back to his days as a student at Brandeis University, in the early 1970s. He was the leader of a student group that publicly derided Israel’s Labor government for not negotiating with Yasir Arafat, and condemned the Jewish community for protesting against Arafat’s infamous speech at the United Nations.

But back in 1990, before there was an internet, it wasn’t hard for anyone to get away with misrepresenting his biography. The exposure of Friedman’s lies was buried, and he was soon promoted to the position of op-ed columnist for the Times, a perch from which he has bashed Israel on countless occasions.

Now it looks like a new generation is taking up where Friedman left off in the department of creative autobiographical writing. Case in point: Jacob Plitman, the 27 year-old editor of the far-left magazine Jewish Currents.

Recently, a major article in the New York Jewish Week featured Plitman, describing him as being at the center of an “emerging new Jewish left” that is more willing than its elders to criticize Israel. And how did Plitman get to be a critic of Israel? You guessed it—Israel made him hate it.

As a youngster, “his parents sent him to a Young Judea camp.” Plitman “soaked up its messaging on Israel and Zionism,” so much so that he decided to spend his gap year in Israel. And then came The Great Disillusionment.

“His rosy view of Zionism began to change,” the article reported, when Plitman “visited Bethlehem” (interesting choice for a Jewish tourist) “and came face to face with Palestinians for the first time. ‘The things that I saw there were more powerful than my ability to ignore them’,” Plitman told the Jewish Week. As a result, Plitman and his magazine now devote themselves to railing against “the occupation” and “the settlers.”

That’s his version. But I have my suspicions. Here’s why.


Israel among 'shameful' countries abusing human rights activists, according to U.N.
The United Nations on Wednesday listed Israel among 38 "shameful" countries, which it said had carried out reprisals or intimidation against people cooperating with it on human rights, through killings, torture and arbitrary arrests. Allegations of ill-treatment, surveillance, criminalisation, and public stigmatization campaigns targeting victims and human rights defenders were also included on the list.

Israel earned its spot on the list for it's ongoing legal battle against Human Rights Watch representative Omar Shakir, who's visa wasn't extended and who's deportation was ordered last May on the grounds of supporting the BDS movement. Interior minister Deri who ordered the deportation last May said he acted on the recommendation of the Strategic Affairs who had gathered information showing that Shakir “is an active and consistent supporter of boycotting Israel.”

Humans Right Watch challenged the decision and accused Israel of trying to silence criticism on its human right's record and that going after Shakir was an attempt to go after HRW as a whole.

Shakir remains in the country after the Jerusalem District Court backtracked on its original decision to go through with the deportation and the case remains under review.

The UN report did not highlight how it categorized the case against Shakir and why it would place Israel on the "shameful' list.
This Week in Julia Salazar She had a trust fund, her ancestors were Catholic elites, and she has a new version of her conversion story.
A state senate race that was once hailed as a test of the rising strength and power of insurgent socialists has devolved into a full-fledged New York City tabloid circus, featuring charges of lies, identify fraud, theft, and an affair with New York Mets legend Keith Hernandez.

And that was just last week.

Every time the life story of first-time state senate candidate Julia Salazar, 27, seems it can’t get any more convoluted, it does. First, questions were raised about her religious background and political affiliation, after it was revealed she grew up in a Christian family and was a registered Republican who led an anti-abortion group in college before running for office as a Jewish socialist. Then, her self-identification as an immigrant came under fire — she was born in Miami — and her own brother went to town on her claims that she is from a working-class background. Next came revelations of a complex legal dispute with Hernandez’s wife that had led to Salazar being arrested on identity-impersonation charges; she doggedly pursued a defamation countersuit that was ultimately settled in her favor. Amid that story, legal documents surfaced showing her lawyer pointing to “Ms. Salazar trust Account records showing in excess of $600,000” in assets in 2011 and therefore no incentive to steal from Hernandez’s wife.

Now the campaign has confirmed Salazar has had substantial assets held in trust for her. “Julia’s father, who played a very limited role in raising her after her parents’ divorce, was not able to work due to disability in the final years of his life, but on his death in 2009 he left a house and considerable retirement savings; those assets were put in a trust to be divided evenly between Julia and her brother,” campaign spokesman Michael Kinnucan said. “Julia does not have direct access to the trust; the trustee is a relative in Colombia.”

On September 13, Salazar will face off with incumbent Senator Martin Malavé Dilan; the primary winner is all but assured of victory in November.

Salazar’s bid, which has won endorsements from and/or appearances with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Cynthia Nixon, and Nina Turner of Bernie Sanders’s Our Revolution, has even drawn attention in her father’s homeland of Colombia, where a genealogist’s findings further undermine her early campaign claims of having come from a working-class mixed Jewish-Christian family and raise questions about how aware of her own Colombian heritage she has sought to be, despite her repeated statements identifying with it. Meanwhile, interviews with the candidate and with Jewish religious leaders show her story about converting to Reform Judaism could not have happened as she has described it to multiple reporters, because the person she now says guided her conversion process was not an ordained rabbi and also was, in any case, not affiliated with Columbia University the year she initially said she converted through the Columbia/Barnard Hillel.

According to Maria Emilia Naranjo Ramos, a genealogist with the Colombian Academy of Genealogy and Historic Academy of Córdoba, the Salazars have for generations been a prosperous family in Colombia that has played a prominent role in civic and political life. Far from being the daughter of struggling immigrants of mixed Jewish-Catholic religious heritage, which early news reports described her as based on her statements and those of her campaign, Julia Salazar is the scion of longtime Latin-American Catholic elites.
Citizens Union drops endorsement of Julia Salazar, citing 'not correct' information about her academic credentials
A good government group has withdrawn its backing of Julia Salazar for state Senate, saying the candidate provided information about her academic credentials that proved to be incorrect.

Citizens Union had previously issued its “preference” — the term the group uses rather than endorsement — for Salazar, whose campaign has been plagued in recent weeks by revelations about misrepresentations of her past religious and political beliefs and her immigration status.

“Citizens Union is hereby rescinding the preference it expressed for Julia Salazar in the Democratic Primary for New York State Senate District 18,” Randy Mastro, the chair of the group, said in a statement. “Salazar recently admitted that the information she originally provided to Citizens Union about her academic credentials was not correct, so Citizens Union has decided to express no preference in this race.”

A campaign spokesman called it an “error in her endorsement application.”

"Julia regrets that an error in her endorsement application led to Citizens Union rescinding its endorsement, but remains committed to working with Citizens Union and others opposed to Albany corruption if elected to take money out of politics and clean up Albany,” he said.

Gillum Aligns With Groups That Support Boycotts of Israel
Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum has aligned himself with several prominent anti-Semitic organizations known for promoting boycotts of Jewish goods and individuals, fueling questions about how the Democratic candidate would handle issues of import to the state's large pro-Israel community.

Gillum, who is riding a progressive a wave of young Democrats highly critical of Israel, is running against Rep. Ron DeSantis (R., Fla.), a prominent Israel supporter. The Democrat has a history of working with several organizations promoting the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, or BDS, an anti-Semitic movement that seeks to wage economic and political warfare on the Jewish state.

Gillum's open association with these organizations is raising questions in the pro-Israel community, particularly as U.S. states seek to slash ties with BDS organizations and prevent taxpayer funds from supporting these movements. While Gillum has committed to "push back against anti-Israel efforts, like BDS," he has not distanced himself from several organizations leading the charge.

DeSantis, meanwhile, has positioned himself firmly against the BDS movement and is the co-author of legislation that will protect American businesses from being pressured into backing Israel boycotts. The issue is likely to be raised with both candidates as the gubernatorial contest heats up in a state with many Jewish voters.

DeSantis said he is concerned and dismayed by Gillum's ties to radical anti-Israel groups.

"In all my years in Florida, I’ve never seen a candidate for state office who has been as anti-Israel as Andrew Gillum," DeSantis told the Washington Free Beacon in an interview. "He opposes our embassy in Jerusalem, he does not recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s eternal and indivisible capital, and he even criticizes Israel’s response against Hamas [militants] in May of 2018. His anti-Israel views are part and parcel of his overall far left wing, Democrat socialist agenda. He doesn’t share the values of the vast majority of people in Florida with his position."
Former ambassador to U.N. Prosor writes scathing piece against Corbyn
Prosor wrote that during his tenure as ambassador to the UK from 2007 to 2011, “the extreme-Left had started to dominate debate on Israel, not with rational, legitimate criticism but with irrational, racist hatred. I saw antisemitic poison, tropes of ‘Zionist control,’ being injected from the political fringes into the arteries of British public life. Demonstrations outside my embassy turned violent.”

Prosor said that Corbyn was neither the most charismatic or the smartest of the politicians who attended anti-Israel gatherings at the time, “but he was without doubt one of the most committed. As was his director of strategy, Seamus Milne.”

Corbyn,” according to Prosor, “can’t solve Labour’s antisemitism problem, because he embodies it.” He called the Labour Party leader an “equal opportunities terrorist sympathizer,” saying that whatever the terrorist group – be it the PLO, Hezbollah, or Hamas – they could count on Corbyn’s support as long as their target was Israelis or Jews.

“Corbyn didn’t invent the crank politics of conspiracy theory and Jew-hatred. But he has taken it from the fringe meetings of the far-Left and placed it on the front-benches of the House of Commons,” Prosor wrote.

He concluded: “This is not just an issue for the Labour Party, or for a British Jewish community feeling threatened and vulnerable. Corbyn is an embarrassment for Britain. Around the world, all who, as I do, love and admire Britain are watching and hoping that the British public, famed for their decency, tolerance and sense of fair play, stand together and say, enough is enough.”
Top Corbyn aide said working in parliament despite rejected security clearance
A top aide to UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was refused clearance required to work in parliament over security concerns but has worked there regularly anyway, entering with the help of other staff members, Huffington Post UK reported Wednesday.

Corbyn’s private secretary Iram Awan was hired in late 2017 but was denied clearance due to concerns by security services over her associates, the report said. There were no details on who those associates were or how they could compromise security.

Despite this, Awan has regularly been working in the Commons, the report said, with other Labour staffers routinely meeting her at the entrance and waving her in to security personnel, apparently as a supposed visitor. The report alleged that this behavior has been practiced for the past nine months.

“Visitor passes are for visitors only,” a parliament spokesperson told the news site. “They cannot be used to carry out work on the parliamentary estate. While we are unable to comment on specific cases, any alleged breach of the rules on passes will be investigated by the House authorities.”

The report said little is known of Awan, but noted that she has donated to Helping Households Under Great Stress, a group that seeks to “provide financial, emotional, and practical support and advice to Muslim households impacted by counter-terrorism, national security and extremism-related laws, policies and procedures in the UK and abroad.”
Another Top Corbyn Aide Working Without Security Clearance
Another top Corbyn adviser, Andrew Murray, has reportedly been working in the Labour Leader’s Commons office for eight months without the required security clearance. His application has been pending for over a year..

Andrew Murray was a member of the Communist Party of Great Britain until he joined Labour two years ago.

A quick glance at the parliamentary pass application form might explain why so many of Corbyn’s team have been having trouble. Question 30 asks if applicants have ever been associated with people or groups who have “intended to overthrow or undermine Parliamentary democracy by political, industrial, or violent means?” A number of Corbyn’s top team are probably going to need more than half a page to give full details on that one…
British MP of Palestinian Descent Condemns “anti-Semitic” Posters, as Labour Party Investigates Infiltration by Iran
A British Member of Parliament of Palestinian Arab descent has denounced the defacing of bus-stops in London with “Israel is a racist endeavour” posters as “blatantly anti-Semitic,” The Jewish Chronicle reported Thursday.

Liberal Democrat MP Layla Moran, who represents Oxford West and Abingdon, told the BBC: “I’m a Palestinian… The fact that this has come from a group that purportedly is speaking for Palestinians, I take great offence at myself, because I think it is blatantly antisemitic.” She clarified that “there are extremes in the Israeli government… But to say that an entire country is racist is entirely wrong.”

Moran was responding to comments made by Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell, a close ally of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who stated that “It is not at all anti-Semitic to describe a state as racist.”

The posters were meant to mock the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of anti-Semitism, which Labour reluctantly adopted in full last week with a caveat vowing “free speech” on Israel. The IHRA definition, which gives calling “a state of Israel… a racist endeavour” as an example of anti-Semitism.
Why Rachel Shabi's 'alliance of colour' will go nowhere
Our token Mizrahi Corbynista has been gracing the columns of the Guardian as a pundit commentating on local politics. But on the question of the antisemitism rampant in the far-left of the UK Labour party, a note of anguish has been creeping into our Shabi's writings.
Rachel Shabi

In response to a Labour centrist MP's charge that Labour is 'institutionally racist', her latest piece acknowledges that antisemitism is a real problem in Jeremy Corbyn's faction. What about anti-Zionism? Is there such a thing as antisemitic anti-Zionism? 'Zionism is both racist and anti-racist', she fence-sits unhelpfully, despite having written a book portraying Mizrahim as victims of Israel's Ashkenazi establishment.

She finds the view common among leftwing ideologues that Jews are 'white' allies of the Christian West to be wrong. "We are a racialised minority' she protests. She herself is a Mizrahi Jew of Iraqi origin.

Her answer is to start a Jewish-black-Asian-Muslim alliance that would relaunch Jews as 'people of colour'. This alliance is not based on shared Judeo-Christian values. 'If there is a historic sharing of values it is a Jewish-Muslim one,' she writes.
Corbyn in 2015 – let British jihadis travel to Syria
Jeremy Corbyn’s antisemitic record has been under scrutiny for several weeks now, and rightly so. But let’s not forget other issues which are important, starting with our own national security.

He should never be entrusted with the security of the United Kingdom. It would be seriously endangered.

Look back to early 2015. Islamic State was on the march. No wonder – its strength and confidence had been boosted by a big influx of foreign fighters from Europe. They included Britain’s very own “Jihadi John”, who began his beheading spree in 2014.

Those fighters were a top priority for Western intelligence services, in large part because there were fears they could return to the West deeply indoctrinated, highly trained, and ready to carry out devastating terrorist attacks.

Jeremy Corbyn was asked about this issue at the time. He didn’t sound very convinced.
UK's Corbyn stuns by blasting Hungarian PM for anti-Semitism
British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn accused Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban of "pandering to anti-Semitism" ahead of a vote in the European Parliament over whether to censure Hungary for breaching core EU values.

Corbyn, himself under fire for rampant anti-Semitism in his party and for his own anti-Israel and anti-Semitic comments, stunned with a tweet on Tuesday that said, "Labour MEPs will vote to hold Viktor Orban's government in Hungary to account. The Conservatives must do the same, and [British Prime Minister] Theresa May should condemn his attacks on judicial and media independence, denial of refugee rights, and pandering to anti-Semitism and Islamophobia."

Labour has been battling accusations of anti-Semitism for months, and Corbyn has previously apologized for what he has described as "pockets" of anti-Semitism in his party.

Former U.K. Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks has called Corbyn an anti-Semite and said comments revealed last week that Corbyn made about British Zionists five years ago were the most offensive by a senior U.K. politician in half a century.
Anti-Israel Satmar group forges UK rabbis’ pro-Corbyn letter
A hassidic group disseminated a letter in support of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who has come under fire for supporting antisemites, in which the signatures of haredi leaders in the UK were forged.

The Jewish Community Council of North London tweeted overnight Tuesday to “confirm and clarify this letter is fake and bears no authority from any of the assigned names.”


The letter, purportedly from the leadership of London’s haredi umbrella organization, the Union of Orthodox Hebrew Congregations, claims to have the support of the UOHC’s Principal Rabbinical Authority Ephraim Padwa, Senior Dayan (religious court judge) S. Friedman, and 27 others.

US takes on anti-Israel BDS activities on university campuses
The U.S. Education Department's Office of Civil Rights has decided to adopt the international definition of anti-Semitism, which defines Judaism not only as a religion but also an ethnicity and includes holding Jews responsible for Israel's actions as a form of anti-Semitism, Israel Hayom learned Wednesday.

According to a letter written by Assistant Education Secretary for Civil Rights Kenneth L. Marcus to the Zionist Organization of America, anyone who acts "to deny the right of the Jewish people to self-determination, on the grounds that the State of Israel's existence is a racist endeavor" or applies double standards to Israel that it does not apply to any other democratic country will be deemed an anti-Semite.

The ZOA lauded what it called the "groundbreaking decision," saying, "This definition accurately addresses how anti-Semitism is expressed today; it recognizes that Jew-hatred can be camouflaged as anti-Israelism or anti-Zionism. The OCR is not only reassessing the evidence already in the record; the agency is also going to determine whether a hostile environment for Jewish students currently exists at Rutgers [University]."

Pro-Palestinian activists in the United States have warned the move will hinder pro-Palestinian efforts as any such activity will be deemed anti-Semitic.
Daphne Anson: Rogues with a Brogue
In Belfast on Tuesday, heavily outnumbering pro-Israel counter-protesters, dozens of raucous members of an outfit calling itself BDS Ireland (part of part of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement along with Sinn Fein) yell their opposition to Northern Ireland's first friendly football match against Israel in Windsor Park. Over 5,000 Israel-haters signed a petition demanding the match's cancellation, but the match went ahead, the home team winning by 3 goals to nil.


Footballer James Rodríguez Caves In To Israel Haters After Being Subjected to Online Abuse
Colombian footballer James Rodríguez, considered one of the best players of his generation, was recently in Israel. And he wanted his almost 100 million (!) followers on social media to know just how amazing it is here. So he posted the following on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

The Israeli flag triggered the haters, resulting in the young footballer being subjected to a barrage of hate – which he clearly was not prepared for. Unfortunately, he caved in, and replaced the tweet and postings with the identical picture and wording, sans Israeli flag.

Interestingly enough, his next posting is still up, despite clearly identifying Israel and not “Palestine.”
Honest Reporting: Surf’s Up in Gaza: Riding the Anti-Israel Wave
In a long and somewhat labyrinthine article in The Independent, author and academic Andy Martin focuses on a documentary film about a Palestinian surfing club in Gaza.

Feeding the prejudices of The Independent’s readership, every activity in Gaza, even leisure, is turned into an opportunity to attack Israel and spread inaccuracies and falsehoods.

Martin makes it crystal-clear what he thinks about Israel:
Set aside the whole dubious history of Israel, the events of 1948 that the Palestinians refer to as the Nakba (or “Catastrophe”), the Six Day War, the occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem, the continued imperial expansion and slow-motion ethnic cleansing known euphemistically as “settlement”. Even set aside, most recently, the “Nation State” law that spells out, reiterates and reinforces a condition of apartheid. Do you want to know the final straw? They won’t allow surfboards into Gaza. They are obviously part of some sinister Hamas-inspired conspiracy. They may exhibit coded subversive messages on stickers applied to their decks, such as “Life’s a beach”, or “Surf’s Up, Dude”.

Are surfboards “illegal” in Gaza?

So let’s set aside the whole dubious references to “ethnic cleansing” and “apartheid” that Martin casually tosses into the water and deal with his allegations regarding surfboards. Are they really “illegal” in Gaza as the article and the headline suggest?
Merkel: ‘No excuse’ for far-right violence, attack on kosher restaurant
Chancellor Angela Merkel assured parliament Wednesday she takes seriously Germans’ concerns about crimes committed by migrants and pledged a strong response, but condemned recent demonstrations as “hateful,” saying there is “no excuse” for expressions of hate, Nazi sympathies or violence in response.

The comments come after the killing of a German man for which an Iraqi and a Syrian have been arrested prompted days of anti-migrant protests in the eastern German city of Chemnitz that at times turned violent.

Neo-Nazis were seen giving the stiff-armed Hitler salute in the largest demonstration, the day after the killing, which attracted some 6,000 people, and on the sidelines of the protest masked men threw stones and bottles at a kosher restaurant yelling “Jewish pig, get out of Germany.”

The day before, in spontaneous protests by hundreds immediately after the killing, several foreigners were attacked and injured in the streets.

Merkel assured lawmakers that her government was equally aware of its responsibility to take the wider concerns of the public seriously, and that it was working with “all resolution” on the issue.

“We are especially troubled by the severe crimes in which the alleged perpetrators were asylum-seekers,” she said. “This shocks us… (and) such crimes must be investigated, the perpetrators have to be taken to court and punished with the severity of the law.”
Pig guts thrown at office of Australian lawmaker whose wife is Jewish
The district office of an Australian member of Parliament whose wife is Jewish was targeted by racists who threw pig’s entrails at the front door.

The early Wednesday morning attack follows an earlier attack by the neo-Nazi group Antipodean Resistance on September 1 on another office belonging to the same MP, Labor lawmaker Mike Kelly, in which the group plastered swastika stickers on the door.

Mike Kelly’s wife is Jewish.

The attack involving the pig’s entrails took place in the New South Wales city of Queanbeyan, located just 10 miles from Australia’s capital Canberra. The swastika attack took place in the coastal town of Bega, 135 miles from Queanbeyan.

A former military attorney, Col. Mike Kelly joined the Australian military serving in Somalia, East Timor and Bosnia, and was among senior Australian military personnel who served in the Iraq War. In 1993, he was awarded the Chief of the General Staff Commendation.

“The series of attacks directed at my electorate offices are evidence of the need for constant vigilance and the confrontation of extremist groups in our country,” Kelly told JTA.

“If the perpetrators think that they will intimidate me into refraining from defending Israel or supporting our Jewish community they are deluded,” Kelly said. “Actions like this only spur me to greater efforts and commitment. I have faced much worse threats in my Army career and I will continue to fight racism and ignorance wherever I find it.”
Database helps Jewish families obtain properties' restitution in Poland
In the small park behind the only synagogue in this city to have survived World War II, Yoram Sztykgold looks around with a perplexed expression.

An 82-year-old retired architect, Sztykgold immigrated to Israel after surviving the Holocaust in Poland. He tries in vain to recognize something from what used to be his childhood home.

“It’s no use,” he says after a while. “To me this could be anywhere.”

Sztykgold’s unfamiliarity with the part of Grzybowska Street where he spent his earliest years is not due to any memory loss. Like most of Warsaw, his parents’ apartment building was completely bombed out during the war and leveled, along with the rest of the street. His former home is now a placid park that is a favorite hangout for mothers pushing baby carriages and pensioners his age.

The dramatic changes in Warsaw’s landscape have bedeviled efforts for decades to obtain restitution for privately owned properties like Sztykgold’s childhood home, making it difficult for survivors like him to identify assets that may have belonged to their families.

But for many restitution claimants in the capital, identifying assets will become easier thanks to a recent breakthrough with an unlikely source: the establishment of a first-of-its-kind searchable database. Users need only type in the name of their family to obtain a complete overview of all the assets they may claim under a new restitution drive in Warsaw.
Israel’s Ride Vision plans to make motorcycling safer
As the race heats up toward the launch of autonomous vehicles, state-of-the-art technologies like ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) are being designed to prevent collisions. But motorcycles have been largely overlooked in the process.

According to a 2018 US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, fatalities in traffic crashes occur nearly 28 times more frequently for motorcycles than for passenger car occupants, and motorcycle drivers comprise 17 percent of all driver- and passenger-related fatalities. There were 5,286 fatal motorcycle crashes in 2016 in the US, a 5.1 percent increase from 2015, according to NHTSA.

Uri Lavi and Lior Cohen are avid motorcycle riders who want to bring computer safety smarts to two-wheelers. Their company Ride Vision just raised a $2.5 million seed round from YL Ventures for its patented CAT (Collision Aversion Technology) for motorcycles.

Lavi and Cohen previously worked together in Israel’s homeland security industry. Lavi went on to become CEO of PicScout and brought in Cohen to serve as VP of R&D.

PicScout developed a technology for identifying images on the web that may have been used or modified without permission and then notifying the copyright owners. The company was acquired in 2011 by Getty Images for $20 million.

Lavi and Cohen gained expertise in technologies such as artificial intelligence, neural networks, computer vision and threat detection that is relevant in their newest venture, though it is quite different.
’70s rock band America heading to Israel to ‘give everyone a night off’
When Dewey Bunnell and Gerry Beckley of the soft rock band America finally arrive in Israel for their long-planned October 9 and 10 performances in Caesarea, they intend to not only entertain the crowds, but also to learn a little about the country.

“We’re all geared up to see stuff,” said Bunnell, who splits his time between homes in Wisconsin and Los Angeles, and has never been to Israel.

Bunnell, 66, and Beckley, 65, are two of the original members of the 1970s-era band, which has been performing continuously since it began as a high school cover band.

They had planned to perform in Israel in the summer of 2014, but canceled due to the conflict in Gaza.

Even now, said Bunnell, speaking from his lakeside home in Wisconsin, he doesn’t know that much about Israel and its political situation.

“Every place has their issues, and I have to profess, I’m not versed in Israel,” he said. “I obviously follow the news, but the region is new to me. It’s just a matter of us going in with our eyes wide open and enjoying it. Our job is to entertain people; we’ve always made that point.”
Kim Kardashian signs deal with Israeli eyewear company
World-famous supermodel and reality TV star Kim Kardashian West will be heading back to Israel next year.

Israeli sunglasses company Carolina Lemke Berlin announced Wednesday that Kardashian West has signed a deal to join Bar Refaeli - the face of the brand - in an upcoming collaboration.

Supermodel and reality TV star Kim Kardashian West will be heading back to Israel next year.

Israeli sunglasses company Carolina Lemke Berlin announced Wednesday that Kardashian West has signed a deal to join Bar Refaeli – the face of the brand – in an upcoming collaboration.

The supermodel will fly to Israel in March “for a visit as part of our cooperation,” the company said. In addition to appearing in advertisements for the brand, Kardashian West will also design her own line of glasses for a limited-edition series sold by Carolina Lemke.

In a press release on Wednesday, the company said it selected Kardashian West, “the most famous woman in the United States, to be the face of the brand for at least two years, beginning in summer 2019.” The company said it will also be launching a website aimed at selling its products in the United States. Until now, the brand has been focused on Israel and Europe.
Afghan man sends gravely ill kids to heart center in Israel
Noorina is five years old and lives in Afghanistan. In July, her father brought her to Israel for lifesaving heart surgery arranged by Save a Child’s Heart (SACH), an Israeli medical charity based at Wolfson Medical Center in Holon.

When she is older, Noorina may be surprised to learn that an Afghan stranger willingly put himself and his family at risk to give her the gift of health.

Noorina was the fifth child from Afghanistan sent to SACH through the efforts of that same young Muslim father, who asked ISRAEL21c to call him Jangzapali, a pseudonym to hide his true identity.

“Jangzapali,” he explains, “means ‘victim of war.’”

Jangzapali is involved in all types of charity work and has built up an international social-media network over the past few years. Children needing urgent medical care are his top priority.

“Almost 10,000 [medical need] cases are registered with the Afghan Red Crescent. They are unable to do all cases, so through our broad network on social media, we arrange surgery for poor children in Afghanistan or India. For complicated cases they cannot handle, we work with Save a Child’s Heart,” he says.
Artist turns Kassam rockets into flowers and mezuzahs
Holding aloft a missile fragment, Gaza-area artist Yaron Bob explains to a Kann interviewer that not long ago the projectile had penetrated an Israeli car.

"The incredible Iron Dome is Israel's missile defense system. When rockets are fired into Israel, the Iron Dome shoots a missile to intercept the rocket, preventing destruction and the murder of innocent lives," says the description of one item on Bob's website.

"Bring Israel's heavenly protection into your home with this limited-edition Mezuzah made from an actual Iron Dome missile!"

"I cut it into rectangles, polish it, and craft the mezuzot. My mezuzot get grabbed up all over the world. They cost between $150-200."

Asked how much profit he can extract from a single Kassam missile, Bob makes a quick calculation and answers "About $2,000 per Kassam."

A tour of his storage area reveals a representative variety of the weapons constantly aimed at Israel's children: "Here are rockets that fell a month ago; this one's a 120mm, this one's a Grad. Wanna see a whole Grad?" he asks deferentially, and lifts one from the pile. "Made in China," he says. "This one here fell in Dimona."

The interviewer asks Bob,"How do you have all these types?" and Bob retorts, "How do they?"




We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.

          Dollar Chops in Narrow Ranges       Cache   Translate Page      
Eurostat confirmed that EMU industrial output fell for a second consecutive month in July.  The 0.8% decline was larger than expected and is the third decline of such a magnitude in four months and weighed on the euro.  German and Spanish industrial output had surprised on the downside last week, and  Italy matched suit today with a report showing a 1.8% contraction, much larger than expected, and bringing the year-over-year rate to -1.3% (workday adjusted).  It is the largest decline since January 2015.  

We had anticipated that the ECB staff would shave its growth forecasts, which are announced tomorrow.    In June, the staff forecast 2.1% growth this year slipping to 1.7% next year.  France took the jump on the ECB by revising its growth down to 1.7% this year and next from 2.0% and 1.9% respectively.  The poor economic data and softer forecasts come at a difficult time for Europe as next year's budgets are prepared.  

Slower growth translates into larger deficit as a percent of GDP.  France revised its deficit projection to 2.6% this year from 2.3% and next year 2.8% of GDP rather than 2.4%.    Although the Italian government has been making more investor-friendly comments, which have been rewarded by bond market investors, the room to maneuver is limited.  Moreover, the decline in the sovereign yield and premium over Germany may be having a diminishing impact on bank shares, which are off 1.4% at pixel time while the benchmark yield is about two basis points lower.  

The euro has chopped between $1.1570 and almost $1.1610, staying within yesterday's ranges.  Sterling also remains within yesterday's range.  While a date in November for a special UK-EU summit to sign an agreement is bandied about, the other side of the problem, the cabinet, and Parliament are digging in for a fight.  There is talk of a leadership challenge.  The Bank of England meets tomorrow, and a unanimous decision on rates is widely expected after last month's hike.  The market does not anticipate another rate hike until after Brexit at the end of March 2019.   

Meanwhile, the EC's confrontation with Hungary may come to a head today.  It is threatening sanctions over what is seen as a crisis of democracy.  A 2/3 majority is needed to approve sanctions under Article 7.  If the EU cannot muster the support, it may embolden others and what has been dubbed the rise of 'illiberal democracies."   

In Asia, stocks remained under pressure.  The MSCI Asia Pacific Index fell 0.2% to extend the losing streak for a 10th consecutive session, the longest run since 2002.  The contrast is stark.  The Topix and Shanghai Composite, as well as the leading markets in Europe, like the DAX, CAC, FTSE-Milan, and the FTSE 250 are all below the 50- and 200-day moving averages.  The US S&P 500 posted a bullish outside up day yesterday and is within two percent of the record high seen in late August.  European shares are firmer today, rising 0.2% near midday.  The latest fund tracker reports showed European equity funds saw the first inflow in nearly six months.  The S&P 500 is up 8% year-to-date coming into today's session, while the Dow Jones Stoxx 600 is down 3.3%.  

The Canadian dollar is holding on to the bulk of yesterday's gains, with the last surge sparked by reports that it is willing to make a concession on dairy, a sector not included in the current NAFTA. White House economic adviser Kudlow suggested that this was a major stumbling block.  However,  many had anticipated Canada to make this move as it had already signaled its intention and had done the same thing to strike a deal with the EU.  Other more serious hurdles seem to remain.  These include anti-dumping panels, a sunset clause, intellectual property rights and patents for pharma, and protection for what Canada calls cultural industries. 

Of course, NAFTA is not the only consideration for the Canadian dollar.   The Bank of Canada widely expected to hike rates next month.  The OIS market appears to be discounting a bit more than an 85% chance of rate increase.  US dollar support is seen in the CAD1.3000-CAD1.3020 area.  

South Korea reported an unexpected jump in August unemployment (4.2% from 3.8%), and this makes it more difficult for the central bank to hike interest rates.  It may have to resort to macroprudential measures if it wants to curb surging property prices.  India reports CPI and industrial production.  Both are expected to have eased.  The dollar initially rose to new record highs against the rupee before recovering on the back of reports suggesting new measures will be announced to support the currency early next week (following a planned economic review this weekend.  

The dollar has been confined to about 10 pips on either side of JPY111.55. There are $1.13 bln of options struck between JPY111.50 and JPY111.65 that expire today.  Dollar support extends to JPY111.20-JPY111.30.  It has not traded above JPY112.00 since August 1.  

The US session features the August PPI and the Fed's Beige Book ahead of the meeting on September 26.  Governor Brainard speaks a little after midday in Detriot, and Fed President Bullard speaks in Chicago shortly after the stock market opens.  A rate hike is as done of a deal as these things get.  The EIA oil inventory figures will also receive attention after the API estimated an 8.63 mln barrel draw.  Analysts had expected a 2.7 mln barrel build.  The $9-$10 a barrel spread between WTI and Brent has helped US step up its oil exports, while the EIA shaved US output projections.

          Bài học từ các thần đồng nữ về cờ vua      Cache   Translate Page      
https://baomai.blogspot.com/
Thành tích trong các giải đấu khi còn ít tuổi có thể "ít nhiều" quyết định sự nghiệp tương lai của mình?

Làm thế nào để một người phụ nữ nổi trội được trong thế giới cạnh tranh khốc liệt do nam giới thống trị về cờ vua?

Judit Polgar người Hungary là người chơi cờ vua giỏi nhất mọi thời đại.

https://baomai.blogspot.com/ 
  
Bà là cô bé thần đồng, bà đã phá kỷ lục của Bobby Fischer để trở thành đại kiện tướng trẻ nhất khi bà 15 tuổi. Bà tiếp tục đánh bại kỳ thủ số một thế giới, Garry Kasparov, sau khi ông này nói phụ nữ không nên chơi cờ. Bà vẫn là người phụ nữ duy nhất từng đứng trong 10 kỳ thủ hàng đầu thế giới (top 10), mặc dù đã nghỉ chơi 4 năm.

https://baomai.blogspot.com/ 
  
Hou Yifan, người Trung cộng, được coi là nữ kỳ thủ cờ vua xuất sắc nhất hiện nay. Bà đã từng là nhà vô địch cờ vua thế giới của phụ nữ bốn lần, người trẻ nhất từng giành danh hiệu này, cũng như từng là nữ kỳ thủ trẻ nhất nhận danh hiệu đại kiện tướng.

https://baomai.blogspot.com/ 
  
Cả hai phụ nữ này có chung một số nét tương tự: sự tận tâm và kiên cường phi thường, một nếp nghĩ không thể lay chuyển, sự rèn luyện vô hạn và một lượng kỹ năng thiên phú. Những đặc điểm này dễ dàng đưa người ta đến thành công trong lĩnh vực của mình. 

Nhưng liệu có những yếu tố nào khác nữa không để đưa đến những thành tựu của các phụ nữ này?

Được khuyến khích khi còn nhỏ

https://baomai.blogspot.com/ 
Hou khai mạc giải đấu cờ vua tại một ga tàu điện ngầm ở Mexico City vào năm 2017.

Cả hai đều đồng ý rằng sự hỗ trợ của cha mẹ là cần thiết; họ được gia đình động viên khi còn nhỏ tuổi.

Cờ vua đặc biệt lại là chuyện gia đình đối với Polgar, vì chị bà cũng thi đấu - bà Hungary này nói khi bà mới sinh ra, cha mẹ bà đã chắc chắn rằng bà sẽ trở thành vô địch cờ vua.

Gia đình Polgar không tin rằng giới tính của bà ngăn cản được bà đạt đến mức cao nhất trong cờ vua. Cha mẹ bà, bà nói, "thực sự tin rằng một cô gái có thể đạt được kết quả giống như bất kỳ đứa con trai tài năng nào."


https://baomai.blogspot.com/   

Hou bắt đầu chơi cờ từ khi bà chỉ mới 5 tuổi. Mẹ bà đã dạy bà những điều cơ bản và đến năm bà 8 tuổi, thực tế bà đã chơi suốt cả ngày. Bà trải nghiệm thành công quốc tế đầu tiên của mình khi bà 9 tuổi. Bà tin rằng thành tích trong các giải đấu khi còn ít tuổi có thể "ít nhiều" quyết định sự nghiệp tương lai của mình.

https://baomai.blogspot.com/ 

Ngược lại với Polgar, Hou giải thích rằng ban đầu mẹ bà muốn bà học "một thứ gì thanh lịch và phù hợp hơn với các cô gái như khiêu vũ, trong khi cha tôi lại thích tôi học cờ vua vì nó được coi là môn thể thao quốc tế".

Trong khi ít cô gái trẻ tham dự các giải đấu ở Trung cộng vào thời đó, Hou đã thi đấu trong các giải đấu hỗn hợp nam nữ từ khi còn nhỏ. Bà nhận xét rằng "trong suốt sự nghiệp cờ vua, tôi thực sự không thấy các cô gái bị đối xử hoàn toàn khác biệt." Hou nói rằng mặc dù hiện có nhiều nữ tham gia hơn so với các thập kỷ trước, nhưng vẫn còn tiềm năng để khuyến khích nhiều cô gái hơn nữa bắt đầu chơi cờ vua và thi đấu.

Nhưng giới tính trong cờ vua là không đơn giản. Thí dụ, Polgar và Hou cảm thấy thế nào về các cuộc thi đấu chỉ gồm nữ với nhau?

https://baomai.blogspot.com/ 
  
Polgar từ rất sớm đã quyết định không chơi trong các giải đấu nữ, bởi vì bà muốn chơi với những người giỏi nhất, mà họ là nam giới. Bà sẽ có thể phát triển kỹ năng của mình bằng cách đấu với nam giới và liên tục cố gắng bằng cách đấu với các đối thủ ngày càng giỏi hơn: "Nếu ta đặt mục tiêu cao hơn, thì ta cũng tiến xa hơn."

Đôi khi sự bực mình của sự mất cân bằng giới tính trong cờ vua có thể sinh ra những tuyên bố đầy kịch tính. Trong một giải đấu hỗn hợp nam nữ năm 2017 ở Gibraltar, Hou đã từ bỏ trận đấu vòng chung kết của mình chỉ sau 5 nước đi sau khi chỉ đấu với toàn phụ nữ ở 7 vòng đấu trong tổng 9 vòng đấu, mặc dù tỷ lệ nam/nữ là 4/1. Các nhà tổ chức nói máy tính báo trận đấu là hòa, vì vậy đây chỉ là sự không may.

https://baomai.blogspot.com/ 
  
Ngoài Polgar và Hou, không có nữ kỳ thủ nào khác nằm trong top 100. Polgar nói, "Đây là một vấn đề rất nghiêm trọng và mọi người đang cố gắng tìm lời giải thích, thậm chí ở chính các nữ kỳ thủ." Những lý do là phức tạp và đa dạng.

Một lý do, Polgar nói, là kỳ vọng và nhãn hiệu mà xã hội đặt vào con gái- cha mẹ hoặc giáo viên không nhất thiết phải nghĩ rằng con gái mình hoặc học sinh nữ của mình nên trở thành kỳ thủ. "Khi bạn là một đứa trẻ, là đứa con gái, họ nhìn bạn theo một cách khác: 'Con thật dễ thương, Con có mái tóc đẹp'." Bà không đồng ý đám con trai là giỏi đấu cờ hơn, cũng như bà không đồng ý là các cô gái trẻ nên hướng một cách tự nhiên tới các hoạt động 'nữ tính' như múa ba lê.

Bạn là ngoại lệ

https://baomai.blogspot.com/   
Polgar, 12 tuổi, trong một ván đấu cờ giữa Pháp và Hungary năm 1989.

Vậy làm thế nào để một nữ kỳ thủ có được động cơ khi phải đối mặt với các đối tác nam mà họ bác bỏ mình, coi như mình kém cỏi hơn? Polgar không coi đây là vấn đề của cá nhân mình. "Vấn đề là nhìn vào số liệu thống kê thì họ đúng." Tuy nhiên kết quả của bà tự nó thể hiện. Bà đã đánh bại đại kiện tướng Nigel Short vài lần và bao giờ ông cũng nói, "Judit ơi, chị là một ngoại lệ."

https://baomai.blogspot.com/ 
  
Polgar nói rằng các đối thủ nam thường đánh giá thấp bà bởi vì bà là phụ nữ. Bà nhớ lại lần đầu tiên, ở tuổi 11, bà thắng một đại kiện tướng- anh ta "không không biết phải xử lý thế nào", bà nói.

Nhưng khi bà 20 tuổi, một trong những lời khen lớn nhất, mặc dù tương đối mộc mạc, là của cưu vô địch thế giới Viswanathan Anand. Khi được hỏi anh nghĩ gì về Polgar: "Vâng, không có gì, cô ấy chỉ là một trong những đối thủ cạnh tranh, cô ấy là một trong chúng tôi." 

https://baomai.blogspot.com/ 
  
Việc chấp nhận sự bình đẳng như một đối thủ không phải dễ mà công nhận. "Tôi đã phải chứng minh bản thân mình và cạnh tranh trong nhiều thập kỷ để thực sự đạt được sự tôn trọng của những đấu thủ khác," Polgar nói.

Polgar và Hou nghĩ giải pháp là gì? Hou nói rằng cần có nhiều cơ hội hơn cho các nữ kỳ thủ chuyên nghiệp để thi đấu, và nên khuyến khích nhiều cô gái hơn tham gia các giải đấu nam nữ hốn hợp.

Một số người thậm chí xới lên việc loại bỏ hẳn giải thi đấu chỉ gồm toàn nữ và chỉ tổ chức các giải thi đấu nam nữ hỗn hợp. Hou không nghĩ đó là một ý tưởng hay- cô nghĩ các giải đấu chỉ gồm nữ giới là cần thiết để khuyến khích và động viên người chơi, để họ có thể giành huy chương và trở thành nhà vô địch. Đối với Polgar, hủy bỏ các giải đấu chỉ gồm nữ giới là một câu hỏi rất nhạy cảm. Bà giải thích rằng sẽ khó để chuyển đổi vì trình độ kỹ năng trong các giải đấu mở rộng là cao hơn nhiều.

https://baomai.blogspot.com/ 
  
Cả hai phụ nữ này hiện đang khám phá cuộc sống vượt ra ngoài cờ vua thi đấu. Polgar đã giải nghệ vào năm 2014 nhưng cam kết thúc đẩy cờ vua. Hou sẽ sớm theo đuổi bằng thạc sĩ tại Đại học Oxford. Nhưng Polgar và Hou vẫn là mẫu người gây cảm hứng cho những gì những cô gái trẻ quyết tâm có thể đạt được- và với thành tích của họ, họ có thể đã làm cho việc đạt tới đỉnh cao của cờ vua cạnh tranh dễ dàng hơn một chút.

          EU Votes On Punishing Hungary For Violating EU 'Common Values'      Cache   Translate Page      
Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit DAVID GREENE, HOST: The European Parliament has voted for the first time to punish a country for trampling on European Union values. The country we're talking about is Hungary, where the right-wing government is accused of weakening democracy and mistreating asylum-seekers. NPR's Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson is in Berlin, and she sent this report. SORAYA SARHADDI NELSON, BYLINE: Proponents of sanctioning Hungary include Dutch European Parliament member Judith Sargentini. She told fellow lawmakers the unprecedented vote was about a lot more than stopping the hard-line Hungarian government from strong-arming the country's courts, journalists and NGOs. (SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING) JUDITH SARGENTINI: We all have the task to protect the rights of European citizens to live in a society in which pluralism, nondiscrimination, tolerance, justice, solidarity and equality between women and men prevail. It is therefore our duty to act. NELSON: Even Manfred
          Rising European fear: Strongman-dominated global "jungle"      Cache   Translate Page      

The spread of anti-establishment movements in the U.S. and Europe — fed by a gnawing sense of Western failure — suggests a restoration of "the jungle," the more dangerous, strongman-led politics that preceded World War II, according to a leading historian.

Why it matters: Over the last week, politicians and voters in Italy, Hungary and Sweden have reinforced Europe's move away from the U.S.-led order. But historian Robert Kagan of the Brookings Institution says many forget that, prior to the war, normal European politics gave birth to fascism, Nazism, genocide and some of history's most predatory dictators.


  • In a vote today, the European Parliament censured Hungary as a "systematic threat to the rule of law" because of Prime Minister Viktor Orban's increasing concentration of power in his own hands, report the WSJ's Valentina Pop and Drew Hinshaw.
  • On Sunday, Swedish voters gave their biggest support ever to the right-wing Democratic Party, which has neo-Nazi roots. The Democrats finished with almost 20% of the votes, giving them 42 of the 349 seats in parliament, the third-largest share of nine parties or coalitions.
  • And last Friday, Matteo Salvini, Italy's powerful deputy prime minister, joined The Movement, a group founded by Steve Bannon to spread populist politics throughout Europe, reports the NYT's Jason Horowitz.

Ahead of the publication of his slender new book, "The Jungle Grows Back" (out next week), Kagan tells Axios that the string of events in Europe are examples of the world returning to its natural, tough guy-led state.

"Democracy and liberalism aren't our fate. It's always a battle of the human soul, of the competing forces of human nature. We now have tribalism and nationalism in search of strong authority."
Kagan, speaking to Axios

Kagan's thesis has gained traction in Germany. In a speech on Aug. 27 in Berlin, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said, "We Germans in particular can have no interest in a 'jungle growing back in the world order.' We must resist this to the best of our ability. And we must lay our hands on the right tools when the jungle beckons."

In the book, Kagan argues that the last three decades of geopolitics — the failure of the Arab Spring, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, not to mention the financial crash and more — have naturally led people to lose faith in the basic system of governance.

Americans in particular wonder why the U.S. ought to pay an outsized portion of the cost of the system. But Kagan says the governing system amounts to a bargain — the U.S. gets strategic hegemony and the same resulting peace and prosperity enjoyed by everyone, as long as it does not constrain anyone else's economic growth.

The impact: Absent the U.S., the whole house falls apart, Kagan says. "[T]here is no guarantee that democracy comes out on top," he says. "If you look at history, you have to say that that has been rarer."

  • "People think the last 30 years has been a disastrous foreign policy," he says. "It will be difficult turning it around. The only answer is to go back through history and say, 'This is what normal looks like.'"

          EU Acts Against Hungary, Citing Academic Freedom      Cache   Translate Page      

The European Parliament took the unprecedented step Wednesday of approving a proposal calling on European Union member states to determine whether Hungary is at risk of breaching the union's founding values -- the first step toward possible sanctions against the country.

Among the values at stake are those related to academic freedom and freedoms of expression and association. A report adopted by the Parliament by a 448-197 margin Wednesday outlines concerns related to a 2017 law on foreign branch campuses that has been widely seen as an attack on academic freedom generally and on the Budapest-based Central European University, an American-accredited graduate institution, specifically. It also discusses concerns about the Hungarian government's plans, revealed in August, to cancel or refuse recognition to gender studies programs.

Other areas of concern outlined in the report include those relating to the functioning of the constitutional and electoral system; judicial independence; corruption and conflicts of interest; privacy and data protection; freedom of religion; the right to equal treatment, the rights of minority groups, including Roma and Jews; the rights of migrants, asylum seekers and refugees; and economic and social rights.

The European University Association, which monitors university autonomy issues across Europe and has 13 member institutions in Hungary, said the vote is "a warning to all EU governments to respect fundamental values, including those regarding university matters."

"While the situation is alarming in several countries including Turkey and Russia" -- neither of which are EU members -- "Hungary is the first EU member state to systematically interfere in university matters and repeatedly violate academic freedom," the association said in a statement.

Hungary's right-wing government has condemned the parliament's action against it. Péter Szijjártó, the minister of foreign affairs and trade described the parliament's decision as "the petty revenge of the pro-immigration politicians." Szijjártó said the parliamentary report "includes 37 false, deceitful, unfair and unfounded accusations that insult Hungary, and which have absolutely nothing to do with reality," including accusations regarding the restriction of academic freedom.

A keddi vitát követően szoros szavazásra lehetett számítani, szerdán azonban túlnyomó többséggel elfogadták a jelentést. Az EP-döntés zöld utat ad az alapszerződés 7-es cikkelyének érvényesítéséről szóló jogi procedúra megkezdéséhez, melynek következő szakasza már az Európai Tanácson belül, a külügyminiszterek körében zajlik.

Nagy József (Híd) nem ért egyet az eljárással, szerinte gyengén volt előkészítve a jelentés, és alkalmatlannak tartja a 7-es cikkely érvényesítéséhez. „Nem Orbán Viktor védelmében szavaztam, tisztában vagyok vele, hogy a magyar kormány hatalomgyakorlása súlyos deformációkhoz vezet a demokráciában.

A kizárás kezdeményezését azonban nem tartom helyes eszköznek, sokkal célravezetőbb lenne bizottságon belül, vagy pedig a bíróságon tárgyalni a problémákról” – nyilatkozta az EP-képviselő. Az eredmények tükrözik a néppárt megosztottságát, a képviselő szerint főleg a nemzeti hovatartozás határozta meg, ki hogy szavazott. Manfred Weber, az EPP frakcióvezetője támogatta a jelentést, de a párton belül képviselőire bízta a döntést.

Csáky Pál (MKP) is elutasította a jelentést, nemmel szavazott. Szerinte a dokumentum tartalmi szempontból is rossz. „Sargentini egy amatőr politikus. Nem tudott ellenállni különféle külső nyomásoknak, ezért a szövegbe beletett mindenféle dolgot, amit elhitettek vele. Ettől a jelentés eklektikus, zavaros lett, és valóban több tárgyi hibát tartalmaz” – nyilatkozta lapunknak Csáky Pál. Szerinte méltatlan volt ilyen formában a parlament elé terjeszteni a jelentést. Ő is egyetért abban, hogy vannak problémák, melyeket meg kell vitatni, de nem tartja elfogadhatónak, hogy az EP-választások előtt ilyen módon kezeljék a helyzetet.

 

Megszavazta az EP a magyar jogállamisági helyzetről szóló Sargentini-jelentést

Strasbourg |

Megszavazta a magyar jogállamisági helyzetről szóló különjelentést szerdán az Európai Parlament (EP), a plenáris ülésen 448 igen szavazattal, 197 ellenében, 48 tartózkodás mellett fogadták el a képviselők a dokumentumot. A jelentés elfogadásához legalább 376 szavazatra) volt szükség.

A jelentés bizonytalan folyamatot indított el

Kiállt tegnap Judith Sargentini a szavazás eredménye mellett, hangsúlyozta, hogy nem a magyar népet szeretné büntetni jelentésével. Sokkal inkább az uniós intézményeket szólítja fel, hogy ne tolerálják tovább Magyarország távolodását az európai demokratikus értékektől. Nyilatkozatában elmondta, nem örülne neki, ha a jelentés uniós források megvonását jelentené a magyaroktól.

Csáky Pál (MKP) európai parlamenti képviselő elvből elutasítja a Magyarország helyzetét felmérő jelentést. Egyértelműnek tartja, hogy politikai stratégia áll a jelentés hátterében, és meggyőződése, hogy mindez csupán kampány a jövő évi európai parlamenti választások előtt. „Úgy gondolom, a baloldal trükkje volt ez a jelentés, és főleg annak az időzítése, melynek célja a jobboldal és az EPP megosztása, ami sikerült is” – fejtette ki véleményét a politikus. Szerinte aggodalomra ad okot, hogy a néppárt jelentősen meggyengül és a távozó szavazatok a szélsőséges pártokhoz vándorolnak. Ezáltal veszélybe kerül az Európai Unió stabilitása.

 

Orbán Viktor

Bírálatok sora zúdult Orbán fejére

Strasbourg |

Orbán Viktor Magyarországot védte az Európai Parlamentben. A vita tárgya a Sargentini-jelentés volt, amely megállapította, hogy Magyarországon sérül a jogállamiság elve.

A szavazás hatásait korai megjósolni, a következő hetekben várható döntés arról, kilép-e a Fidesz a néppártból. Nagy József (Híd) EP-képviselő szerint a néppárt tagjai nem adtak okot a Fidesz kilépésére a pártból, épp ellenkezőleg, kompromisszumkötésre invitálták Orbánt. A jelentés szerinte politikailag motivált, mely elsősorban az Európai Néppárt meggyengítésére irányul. „Az országon belül negatív reakció fog kialakulni, és nem javítani fogunk a helyzeten, hanem rontani, mivel áldozattá tesszük a magyar kormányt” – folytatta Nagy József.

A magyarországi fideszes EP-képviselők igazságtalannak tartják a döntéshozás menetét, be is jelentették, hogy a magyar kormány megtámadja a Sargentini-jelentést.

Az alapszerződés 7-es cikkelyének értelmében az eljárás során a külügyminiszterek meghallgatják Magyarország álláspontját és ajánlásokat is tehetnek, melyeket a kormánynak teljesítenie kell. Erre azonban nincs pontos határidő, kérdéses, mikor szavazhatnak a miniszterek arról, szükségesnek látják-e a döntés legmagasabb szintre, a kormányfők Európai Tanácsába utalását. Ha a külügyminiszterek négyötödös többséggel (22 tagállam) megszavazzák az eljárás folytatását, a végső döntés az Európai Tanács kezébe kerül, amely Magyarország jelenléte nélkül egyhangú szavazattal úgy határozhat, megvonja az ország szavazati jogát. A jelentés tehát egy hosszadalmas, többlépcsős folyamatot indít el, azonban még az EP tegnapi határozata után sem tűnik reálisnak, hogy eddig fajulhat a dolog.

          Hungary will seek legal ways to challenge Article 7 vote      Cache   Translate Page      
Hungary says it will seek legal ways to challenge a European Parliament vote to start Article 7 proceedings against the country. The European Parliament voted to discipline Hungary for undermining democratic values, setting off a process that could lead to the suspension of the country's voting rights. It is the first time that the Parliament launches the so-called 'nuclear option' against a member state. Peter Szijjarto, Hungarian Foreign Minister said that the European Parliament's decision is a "petty revenge" against Hungary by pro-immigration politicians. "This decision was born through fraud and in a way that goes directly against and contradicts the provisions of European contracts," Szijjarto said. Philippe Dam, Human Rights Watch's advocacy director for Europe and Central Asia, says that now the EU Commission will have to put pressure on Hungary. "So far what we have seen is a kind of failure to address this issue and a failure to really press Viktor Orban to deliver and to redress the situation," Dam said.

          The EU acts on Hungary      Cache   Translate Page      
Over the past few years, Hungary has been transforming itself into an authoritarian state. The government of Viktor Orbán has undermined human rights and the rule of law, attacked judicial independence, and shut down independent media. Not to mention being virulently Islamophobic. This is all a violation of European democratic norms, and its finally grown too much for the EU, which has voted to pursue disciplinary action against them:
The European parliament has voted to trigger the EU’s most serious disciplinary procedure against Hungary, saying the country’s government poses a “systematic threat” to democracy and the rule of law.

The vote was carried with the support of 448 MEPs, narrowly clearing the required two-thirds majority, after Hungary’s prime minister, Viktor Orbán, was abandoned by many of his allies in the centre-right European People’s party (EPP).

[...]

It is the first time the legislature has triggered an article 7 procedure against an EU member state. The most severe punishment under article 7 is stripping a country of its voting rights in the EU.


Naturally the UK tories voted in support of Orbán, on the basis that the EU standing up for democratic norms would be a "dangerous precedent".

This is good news, and hopefully it will see the EU use these sanctions more widely against those members who are heading in an undemocratic direction. As for Hungary, ultimately Hungarians have to stand up for their own democracy. If they prefer to live in a dictatorship, there's not a lot the EU can really do, other than throw them out of the club until they've decided to be civilised again.

Juncker: EU Will Send Additional 10,000 Guards to Borders
12 September 2018
BBC World Service

The EU plans to send 10,000 more border guards to tackle unlawful immigration by 2020, the European Commission's president Jean-Claude Juncker said in his annual state of the union address.

He called for more solidarity, rather than "ad-hoc solutions" for people on migrant ships.

His speech also tackled the region's other burning issues - populism, terrorism and Brexit.

This is Mr Juncker's last 12 months in the role.

He also proposed a new Africa-Europe alliance, based on co-operation rather than charity, leading to a continent-to-continent free trade agreement.

He recommended that the euro be used more strategically as the biggest currency after the dollar.

And he called for strong leadership on Brexit. "The United Kingdom will never be an ordinary third country for us," he said.

The next elections to the European parliament are expected to be held in late May next year.

Where was the passion?

Analysis by Katya Adler, BBC Europe editor

This was Jean-Claude Juncker's final speech as European Commission president, a nod to his legacy.

He was clearly keen to pat himself on the back where he could. His key message: Europe is going in the right direction (though we can't be complacent). But where was the passion? Public opinion polls across Europe show people more in favour of the EU than they have been in recent years but - and this is a hugely important but - they're also more sympathetic towards populist parties, which are often nationalist and Eurosceptic in nature.

These parties tend to win favour among voters because their message is that they - unlike traditional parties, and unlike what they call remote technocrats in Brussels - are listening to people's concerns and care deeply about social issues.

Populist parties are expected to do very well in next year's elections for the European Parliament. Mr Juncker said little today to change that by persuading disenchanted voters.

In his speech, Jean Claude Juncker also made a notably controversial proposal to abolish EU member countries' vetoes on certain tax and foreign policy issues. This is likely to be pounced on by critics of the EU who accuse it of being an undemocratic institution.

Mr Juncker said the EU needed to be secure from the many threats that faced it.

"We will not militarise the European Union. What we want is to become more autonomous and live up to our global responsibilities," he said.

"Only a strong and united Europe can protect our citizens against threats internal and external - from terrorism to climate change."

On migration

Frontex, the European Border and Coast Guard Agency, currently employs 1,600 border guards across the EU, so the new figure is a substantial hike.

Mr Juncker committed to further developing the European Asylum Agency to offer more support to member states processing asylum seekers.

He stressed a need for legal routes for migration into Europe. "We need skilled migrants," he said.

From the start of Mr Juncker's mandate in 2014, migration has been a major crisis.

It has sparked a rise in populism that has seen power shifts in Italy, Austria, Hungary and Poland, with Sweden the latest country to register a rise in anti-immigration votes in an election.

On Wednesday morning, German Chancellor Angela Merkel told legislators in Berlin that illegal migration poses a greater threat to the cohesion of the European Union than the eurozone crisis.

German parliament is debating its government response to far-right demonstrations in recent weeks.

On Brexit

Mr Juncker offered some support to British Prime Minister Theresa May's Chequers plan, agreeing that the starting point for future partnership should be a free trade area between the EU and the UK.

Brexiteers discuss leadership challenge

He also emphasised the union's support for Ireland. "We want to find a creative solution that prevents a hard border in Northern Ireland. But we will equally be very outspoken should the British government walk away from its responsibilities under the Good Friday Agreement."

On terrorism

There will be "new rules to get terrorist content off the web within one hour".

Internet platforms will be required to develop new methods to police content but it is unclear what form those would take.

The written proposal states that net firms that fail to comply would face fines of up to 4% of their annual global turnover.

On Africa

He called it Europe's "twin continent" - a supportive nod to the African continent's attempts to build its own version of the EU.

He said the new Alliance for Sustainable Investment and Jobs between Europe and Africa would help create up to 10 million jobs there in the next five years.

"We will create framework that brings more private investment to Africa," he said, adding the EU External Investment Plan - launched two years ago - had already started the work.

BBC Africa correspondent Andrew Harding said Europe is increasingly emulating China's approach to Africa - focusing on trade and on partnerships rather than conflicts and charity. But Europe has some catching up to do, he added.

On populism

"We should embrace the kind of patriotism that is used for good, and never against others," he said. "We should reject the kind of exaggerated nationalism that projects hate and destroys all in its path. The kind of nationalism that points the finger at others instead of searching for ways to better live together."

Is Europe seeing a nationalist surge?

After the speech, the EU parliament voted to start disciplinary procedures against Hungary for breaching core democratic values.

On Tuesday, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said he would not respond to "blackmail".

The commission has already launched disciplinary proceedings against Poland over reforms it says challenge the rule of law.

On the economy

"Europe's economy has now grown for 21 consecutive quarters… Never have so many men and women - 239 million people - been in work in Europe," Mr Juncker said.

"Youth unemployment is at 14.8%. This is still too high a figure but is the lowest it has been since the year 2000."

On clock changes

"Clock-changing must stop," the EU Commission president said, announcing an end to EU laws insisting countries change their clocks twice a year. "Member States should themselves decide whether their citizens live in summer or winter time."

The next elections to the European parliament are expected to be held in late May next year.

Speaking in Strasbourg on Wednesday, the Lega MEP claimed Hungary had the full support from Italy to stand up against the EU's migration policy. Mr Borghezio argued Mr Orban had the right to turn away thousands of economic migrants trying to enter his country since it joined the European Union. He said: "Hungary is right if they want to block the indiscriminate arrival of thousands of people who are economic migrants. "They're not people running away from wars. On this, [Italy] are in absolute solidarity with them. "Europe has to decide to what extent we need economic migrants. "In Italy, we certainly don't need them. "So, it's fair for the Italian Government to insist on a stop to these landings and these departures from a Libya that today - because of the lack of resistance of the European foreign policy - is deprived of the possibility to control its own shores." Mr Borghezio's comments follow the vote of MEPs, who were 448 to 197 in favour of invoking the Article 7 procedure against Hungary, in response to what it describes as flouting EU rules. Another 48 MEPs abstained from the vote.

RT 'to air interview with Novichok suspects' Two Russians accused of attempting to murder a former Russian spy and his daughter with a military grade nerve agent in England have reportedly given an interview to Russian state television, its editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan said on Twitter. Their interview will air on Thursday, according to the RIA news agency, citing the head of The state-funded RT channel. British authorities last week identified Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov as suspects in the Novichok poisoning case involving former military intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in March. Their given names are thought to be aliases. Catholic Church accepts 'depressing and shameful' abuse legacy Germany's Catholic Church acknowledged a "depressing and shameful" legacy of sexual abuse on Wednesday after a leaked study said clerics had abused thousands of children over a 70-year period. A document leaked to Der Spiegel news magazine revealed that 1,670 clerics and priests had sexually abused 3,677 minors, mostly males, in the country between 1946 and 2014. The paper was commissioned by the German Bishops' Conference and compiled by three German universities. Bishop of Trier Stephan Ackermann said the Church was aware of the extent of abuse reported by the study. Hungary 'considering legal challenge' after Article 7 vote o Hungary are reportedly considering their legal options after the European Parliament voted Wednesday to trigger sanctions procedures against them over their human rights record. o The motion to trigger Article 7 passed in the Strasbourg plenary session with 448 votes in favour, 197 against and 48 abstentions. o Article 7, often dubbed the "nuclear option", is the EU's punishment clause, allowing it to discipline member states when there is a "clear risk of a serious breach" of the bloc's core principles. Philippe Dam, from Human Rights Watch has more: May to hold 'no-deal' cabinet meeting British Prime Minister Theresa May is holding a 'no-deal' cabinet meeting this morning as the government is due to publish the second tranche of a series of 84 documents setting out contingency plans in the event Britain leaves the EU without an agreement. It comes as reports mounted this week that about 50 members of her own party had been plotting to oust her over her Chequers Brexit plan after the Conservatives party conference at the end of September. Many tory members are still unhappy with her Brexit strategy despite EU negotiator Michel Barnier's optimism that a Brexit deal by November was a "realistic" possibility. No end in sight for 'Scallop war' The so-called Scallop War between Britain and France is in danger of being re-ignited after France's Agriculture Ministry reported Wednesday that talks to resolve the dispute had broken down. French fisherman want their British counterparts to, like them, refrain from fishing for scallops on waters between France and the UK until October 1, even though the Brits are entitled to fish all year-round. The dispute led to a clash of boats last month, when 35 French vessels swarmed 5 British craft in the Baie de Seine, 22km off the Normandy coast. As it happened on Thursday, September 13 This is how we covered key developments this morning:

Poland worried by EU vote to censure HungaryPoland on Wednesday said it was very worried by the European Parliament's rare decision to launch a procedure against Hungary for posing a "systemic threat" to the EU's founding values. The vote took the first steps under Article 7 of the European Union Treaty, known by some in Brussels as the "nuclear option", which could ultimately strip Hungary of its EU voting rights. Other EU governments could halt any further action, however, and Poland -- a fellow ex-communist state that is also facing an Article 7 procedure -- has warned it would do so.

*Mobile TeleSystems (MTS)* has claimed a Russian first with the launch of services over its NB-IoT network in 20 cities across the Federation including Moscow, St. Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Novosibirsk, Kazan and Vladivostok. It plans to offer NB-IoT coverage in all large cities nationwide by the end of 2018. The NB-IoT infrastructure and service rollout is supported by technology solutions from *Huawei*, *Nokia*, *Ericsson*, *Samsung* and *Cisco*, with MTS targeting sectors such as logistics/transport, energy/utilities, mining, manufacturing, retail, health, smart cities and smart housing. The mobile operator highlighted that the NB-IoT network will significantly reduce costs of implementing IoT/M2M solutions due to advantages over existing M2M standards, including increased network capacity, high radio-sensitivity, long service/battery life and low IoT module cost. In another pan-Russia announcement, fixed network operator *ER-Telecom* disclosed that its LoRaWAN-based industrial IoT network has expanded services to 52 cities, stretching from the Pacific port of Vladivostok to the European exclave of Kaliningrad. ER-Telecom – operating under the brands Dom.ru and Dom.ru Business – has partnered platform provider *Actility* for the rollout, targeting 60 cities by the end of this year. IoT solutions on the LoRa network are aimed at the energy sector as well as smart city applications, housing/communal services, other urban services and transport companies among others, offering tailored solutions for ER’s business clients. In the US, *AT&T* is narrowing down the launch window for its upcoming NB-IoT network, which will augment its existing low power, wide area (LPWA) IoT network based on LTE-M technology. AT&T now aims to launch NB-IoT connectivity services in the second quarter of 2019, Mobile World Live reports. Chris Penrose, president of IoT Solutions at AT&T, noted that cellular LPWA IoT services are finally starting to live up to the hype surrounding their early rollouts, saying that ‘use cases are taking off,’ and adding: ‘It’s about how we now truly scale this industry.’ *Vodafone Group* is doubling the number of LTE cell sites supporting the NB-IoT standard, with its existing NB-IoT networks in Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Greece, Ireland, Spain, Turkey, South Africa and Australia to be densified while new networks will be commercially launched in the UK, Romania and Hungary, TechRadar reports. Vodafone – which claims around 74 million M2M/IoT connections worldwide – says there is strong enterprise demand for NB-IoT-powered applications, with its IoT director Stefano Gastaut stating: ‘NB-IoT gives businesses access to 5G capabilities a year before we expect large-scale consumer availability and I believe this will be a catalyst in the widespread use of IoT by enterprises.’ Indian IoT specialist *Unlimit*, part of the *Reliance Group*, has teamed up with state-owned telco *Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL)* to offer IoT services to enterprise customers across India in sectors including automobile, digital manufacturing, logistics, transportation, public sector enterprises and agriculture. Unlimit will leverage BSNL’s pan-India cellular network to provide solutions including IoT device management, managed connectivity, application software and advanced analytics. Jurgen Hase, CEO at Unlimit, said: ‘With the addition of BSNL’s connectivity, we are further expanding our services and capabilities to help scale essential IoT projects in India and contribute significantly in the digitisation of the rural society.’ Anupam Shrivastava, BSNL chairman, added: ‘By combining our pan-India coverage, last mile network access, and bandwidth with Unlimit’s range of services, we will help enterprises accelerate the pace of their new innovations and fast-track the digital transformation process.’ *BlackBerry* has unveiled ‘BlackBerry Spark’, described as the only Enterprise of Things (EoT) platform designed for ultra-secure hyperconnectivity from the kernel to the edge. BlackBerry Spark is aimed at manufacturers of complex ‘things’ such as autonomous vehicles and industrial equipment with the highest levels of security and safety-certification, as well as consumer-friendly interfaces to complex processes and AI, such as voice-activated speakers with built-in privacy protection. The platform is also designed for enterprises to leverage AI and manage smart 'things' regardless of operating system (Android, iOS, Linux, QNX, Windows) as well as snap-in existing platform services such as Android Things, AWS, Azure and Watson. BlackBerry also claims the Spark platform will make ‘military-grade’ security easy and intuitive for end users. In another launch with eyes firmly on security, US operator *Sprint*, in partnership with its Japanese parent *SoftBank Group*’s member companies *Packet* and *Arm*, has unveiled the ‘Curiosity IoT’ platform, enabling enterprises to manage IoT devices and connectivity over the air across multiple SIM profiles. Sprint says that via Curiosity IoT ‘intelligence from device data will be generated instantly through the dedicated, distributed and virtualized core, built together with the new operating system. And the ultimate level of security will be provided from the chip to the cloud.’ Lastly, *Cubic Telecom* has launched its Global Connectivity Management Platform offered ‘as-a-Service’ to IoT device manufacturers worldwide, with the first devices hosted on the platform already being managed in Europe, the USA and South Korea. Cubic says its unique platform solution brings standards-based remote SIM provisioning and cloud-native advanced connectivity management functions such as zero-touch device registration and connectivity activation across different mobile networks, regions and regulatory conditions. Cubic underlines that its IoT platform has ‘entirely new integration capabilities, making it easy for device manufacturers from an array of different industries to deliver a truly global connectivity solution to end users through one global SIM and one platform … across all regions, with complete freedom of vendor choice.’ We welcome your feedback about *IoT Time*.

Germany and Russia: The Long Dance

Perhaps this time is different.

By George Friedman


Russian President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel met last weekend at Meseberg, the guesthouse of the German federal government. Expectations for the meeting, on both sides, were rightfully low. But the meeting comes at a time when both the Germans and Russians are redefining their place in the international system, which for them also means redefining their own relationship. In the 20th century, shifts in the Russo-German relationship tended to have profound consequences for Europe. It’s worth considering what it could mean this time.

Contemporary Europe originates in the early 1990s when the Soviet Union collapsed and the Maastricht Treaty creating the European Union went into effect. For the Germans, these two events meant that their primary interest was no longer the defense of Germany against the Soviet Union, and therefore their primary partner in said defense, the United States, was no longer central. Instead, Germany’s immediate problem was the reintegration of the former German Democratic Republic. Longer term, the focus was on turning the European Economic Community into more than a free trade zone and using the new tools of solidarity to ensure German economic interests. Given the paucity of strategic threats, Germany did not require a coherent security strategy beyond maintaining the EU, and its military capabilities, substantial during the Cold War, atrophied.

Germany’s relationship with Russia was primarily about access to Russian energy supplies. Since its founding, Germany has needed an industrial plant that was much larger than domestic consumption could support. Its industry allowed the German economy to surge and preserved social stability. Imperial Germany competed with the British Empire, selling to Russia, Austria-Hungary and southern Europe and buying natural resources from them. Nazi Germany attempted to create a similar structure, imposed by military force. Contemporary Germany remains dependent on imports of resources and exports of goods. The European Union is one leg of its strategy, and Russia has been another.

In the first decade after the Soviet collapse, Russia did not have a coherent strategy. It was, as a nation, in a state of shock, having freed itself from Soviet structures but having not yet built a new edifice. On the one hand, it needed economic relations with the rest of Europe. On the other hand, it needed to secure itself against foreign threats. The Russians, like the Soviets, pursued a strategy of strategic depth. They sought a neutral or pro-Russia buffer to the west – consisting of the Baltic states, Belarus and Ukraine – and to the south in the North Caucasus.

The encroachment of NATO into Russia’s western buffer and the South Caucasus created a strategic crisis for Russia. The development of a pro-Western government in Ukraine in 2014 was particularly alarming. To make matters worse, oil prices plummeted later in the year – a devastating development for Russia’s economy, which still relies on exports of raw materials. Russia’s strategic and economic position seemed to be unraveling.

The foundation of German national strategy has not quite unraveled, but it’s no longer as secure as it was. The EU is fragmenting along national and class lines. It remains Germany’s primary market for exports, but confidence that this will be permanent has been shaken. Now it is at odds with the United States, which is demanding more defense expenditure from Germany, along with the unstated demand that Germany take more risk alongside the United States. But the Germans have no interest in joining the U.S. in the Middle East, the South China Sea or North Korea.

Germany and Russia, then, both have problems with the global hegemon. These problems precede the Donald Trump administration and go deeper than politics and diplomacy. For Germany, the U.S. constantly wants to divert it from its primary interest (the EU) and creates regional friction – with Russia, for example. And for Russia, the Americans are extending their sphere of influence, particularly in Eastern Europe and the Baltics, with no visible motive except to threaten Russia’s security.

At the same time, Germany and Russia see potential benefits from cooperation. Germany’s economic and regional interests require oil and gas, which Russia has. Russia’s economic development requires foreign investment and technology, which Germany has. This is familiar ground. Germany and Russia explored cooperation between 1871 and 1914. Between the two world wars, Russia provided Germany with military assistance, allowing it to evade the Treaty of Versailles. From 1939 to 1941, they were bound by treaty and jointly participated in the invasion of Poland. Of course, both periods ended disastrously. In World War I, Imperial Germany devastated Imperial Russia. Similarly, despite the military assistance (the Treaty of Rapallo) and the 1939 Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact, Germany invaded Russia and brutalized it again during World War II. American power in West Germany helped avert similar bloodshed during the Cold War.

In short, the history of Russo-German relations since Germany’s unification in 1871 has consisted of tentative attempts at cooperation followed by catastrophic wars and near-wars. Neither country has forgotten that, but the temptation to try again, on the assumption that this time is different, is powerful. If history is consistent, then the U.S. is indispensable. It was U.S. lend-lease and the invasion on the western front that enabled the Soviets to defeat Germany in World War II. It was the U.S. that guaranteed West Germany’s security in the Cold War. Each has been, in a real sense, saved from the other by the Americans.

Of course, if this time really is different, then forming an understanding and pushing the U.S. out of the equation makes sense. But if it remains the case, as it was during the 20th century, that Russia needs buffers to its west, and Germany needs markets and resources under its control, then neither side really has a solid basis for cooperation. In that case, this looks like 1939, when the two sides signed a pact that they knew the other would betray, with the expectation that they would betray first, when the time was right. An alliance of those thinking themselves more clever than the other doesn’t usually end well.

But perhaps this time is different.

The European Parliament yesterday voted to censure the Hungarian government for tearing down its democratic institutions in ways that put EU’s core values at risk.

The move was an historic first for the European Parliament, and an important step that brings Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and his Fidesz Party’s government some much-deserved scrutiny. It’s also an important message for others in Europe who might be tempted to follow his authoritarian path.

Poland’s government is already subject to the same process under the EU Treaty for its attacks on the courts and other democratic checks and balances, in that case initiated by the European Commission.   

The European Parliament was right to act on the deteriorating situation in Hungary. In recent years, the government has undermined the independence of the judiciary, and curbed media independence. It has targeted civil society, including with laws that force organizations to label themselves as foreign funded. In April, it passed another bill that criminalizes independent groups working to protect the rights of asylum seekers and migrants – a legitimate activity in any normal political environment.

In doing this, the government has pushed Hungary off the common EU path of democratic values and respect for human rights and the rule of law.

What comes next? Now EU member governments need to confirm there is a threat to EU values and to address the concerns raised by the parliament. Hungary could ultimately face political sanction, including being stripped of its voting rights if all other EU governments agree – but that’s a way off.

Action against Hungary’s government under the EU Treaty is overdue. The European Commission has tried to address the problematic laws and policies using its legal enforcement powers on case-by-case basis, but the Orbán government has largely ignored the criticism and refused to act on its recommendations.

Until yesterday, more holistic action had been hampered by the fact that the Fidesz Party is a member of the main center-right group in the European Parliament, the European People’s Party (EPP), which until recently helped shield it from criticism and prevented action. That is no longer the case.

The European Parliament decisively acted to stand up for the rights of the citizens it represents, a clear and welcome reminder that rights and values are not negotiable. It is now up to EU member governments to carry this decision forward in the EU Council.


          MITAS – Országúton sem fogunk benne csalódni      Cache   Translate Page      
A Mitas kapcsán általában a terep vonal jut eszünkbe, de országúton is komoly, versenyzésre alkalmas modellekkel rendelkezik a cseh gyártó, melyek a monti gumikhoz hasonlóan kiváló ár-érték arányon érhetőek el. Júliusban az Eurobike után bemutattuk a 2019-es Mitas újdonságokat, ahol főként az új mtb külsőkről írtunk, most pedig a teljes országúti paletta kerül terítékre. Érdekes, hogy a Mitas márkanév hallatán többnyire az mtb gumik és a verhetetlen árú cyclocross külsők jutnak eszünkbe, pedig a cseh gyártó országúti fronton is jelen van, ráadásul elég komoly modellekkel. Ennek oka valószínűleg csupán annyi, hogy a monti és CX vonalon hatékonyabb a Mitas marketingtevékenysége. Az országúti gumijaikat sem csak amatőr bringások használják, vannak szponzorált csapataik, melyek közül pl. a V4-en láthattuk a CK Příbram Fany Gastro-t. Az országúti szegmenst egyelőre 3 modell különféle típusaival fedi le a Mitas, találunk köztük az olcsó hétköznapi használatra valótól a szélesebb túrázós modellen keresztül a versenyhasználatra tervezettig mindent. A Mitas klasszikusa a Syrinx elérhető Racing Pro és Classic verzióban is. Az Elite szinthez tartozó Racing Pro felépítéshez 127 TPI-s szövetsűrűség, hajtogatható perem és Silica Medium Compound gumiösszetétel párosul. Ráadásul megkapta az új Weltex+ technológiát is, melyről tudni érdemes, hogy egy rendkívül tartós gumírozott szövet, magas sűrűségű polimer szálakkal, mely a teljes külsőgumit védi. Magas rugalmassága és elhanyagolható tömege révén növeli a kopással szembeni ellenállást, melyet elsősorban a carbon felnik pereme okoz. És a védelmi technológia ellenére is 23-as méretben mindössze 230, 25-ösben pedig 240 grammot nyom a Syrinx, amivel a piacon található külsők között elég jó helyen szerepel. Az ára pedig kifejezetten baráti, 7990 Ft-ért juthatunk hozzá a Racing Pro modellekhez. A Syrinx Classic változata jó választás lehet városi használatra vagy hétköznapi bringákra, a 2990Ft-os fogyasztói árért 22 TPI-s szövetsűrűsséget, egyszerűbb Road Compund gumiösszetételt és drótperemet kapunk, emellett több színben elérhető: a 23 mm-es fekete, piros és kék oldalfallal, a 25 mm-es széles pedig fekete és krém oldalfallal kapható. A kifejezetten verseny modell Phoenix csak 23-as méretben és Racing Pro kivitelben készül, melynek paraméterei megegyeznek a Syrinx-nél bemutatottakkal azzal a különbséggel, hogy a Phoenix kapható normál Weltex és Weltex+ verziókban is. A különbség a két technológia között, hogy míg a Weltex+ a teljes gumit védi, addig a Weltex csak a peremeket többnyire a karbon felnik okozta kopástól. Természetesen ez a külsők tömegében is megmutatkozik, a Weltex+-os verzió 240 gramm, a Weltex-es pedig 10 grammal könnyebb. Érdemes még megemlíteni, hogy a Phoenix-nél is van színválaszték, 3 színben elérhető az egyszerűbb védelemmel rendelkező változat, míg a Weltex+-os csak feketében vehető meg. Az árak ennél a modellnél sem szálltak el, sőt elgondolkodtató, hogy ennyiért hogyan képesek adni ilyen paraméterekkel rendelkező külsőket, a Weltex változat ára 7490 Ft, a Weltex+ pedig 7990 Ft-ba kerül. Az Arrow-t egyesek hobbi külsőnek neveznék, de valójában nem az. Inkább mondanám azt, hogy azoknak készül, akik a szélesebb országúti gumikat szeretik (sok profi megy széles külsőkkel). Ugyanúgy csak Racing Pro kivitelben érhető el, mint a Phoenix, mindkettő védelmi technológiával (Weltex és Weltex+) megvásárolható és az áraik is nagyon hasonlóak. A Weltex+-os változat tömege 25-ös méretben 250, 28-asban pedig 290 gramm, a csak peremvédelmes verzió pedig 10, illetve 20 grammal nyom kevesebbet. Akárcsak a másik két modellnél a Weltex+ ára 7990 Ft, a sima Weltex-é pedig 7490 Ft. További információk: www.mitas.co.hu Mitas Hungary Facebook

          "Ten Years Gone" by Jonathan Dunsky      Cache   Translate Page      

Israel Noir. 

It may be a new mystery sub-genre.

D.A. Mishani has his Avraham Avraham police detective novels, set in contemporary Tel Aviv. And now Jonathan Dunksy has published a series of Tel-Aviv-based novels, but with a private investigator as the protagonist and set in the early years of Israel’s modern history, when both the Holocaust and the recently concluded war with the Arab nations hanging heavy over the country.

The first in the series is Ten Years Gone.

It’s 1949, and private eye Adam Lapid spends a good portion of each day at Greta’s Café in Tel Aviv, drinking coffee and playing chess. Lapid is originally from Hungary, where he was a police detective. That is, until he was sent to Auschwitz. He survived; his wife and two daughters did not. And he blames himself for not getting his family to safety until it was too late.

Lapid also uses violence when he deems it necessary or appropriate. He killed at least two former Nazis in cold blood after World War II ended. The Holocaust changed his views of justice. He’s also something of a war hero, for his heroic actions in taking out an Egyptian machine gun nest that had pinned down his unit in the Negev during the war for independence.

He takes on an impossible case. A woman asks him to find her son, the baby she gave to a friend in 1939 who was leaving Germany to try to get to Israel. The woman herself didn’t make it out before the war started but was able to obtain false identity papers and stay hidden under an assumed (and Aryan) name in Frankfort. She’s trying to find her son. But she doesn’t even know if he and the friend made it to Palestine; the British were ferociously trying to stop illegal Jewish immigration to the British Mandate.

Jonathan Dunsky
Lapid talks to police and a journalist, and he’s eventually able to learn that the friend and the baby made it to Tel Aviv and lived under different names. Yet some months after their arrival, they were both gruesomely murdered. It seems a dead end, but Lapid considers his own murdered daughters. And he decides to do everything he can to find the killer.

It’s a dark, fascinating tale.

Jonathan Dunsky has published four Adam Lapid mysteries: Ten Years GoneThe Dead SisterThe Auschwitz Violinist; and A Debt of Death. He’s also published The Favor: A Tale of Friendship and MurderGrandma Rachel’s GhostsFamily TiesTommy’s Touch: A Fantasy Love Story; and other works. He was born in Israel, served four years in the Israeli Army, lived in Europe for several years, and currently lives in Israel with his family. He has worked in various high-tech firms and operated his own search optimization business.

Ten Years Gone artfully blends history and mystery in a riveting read.

          A Brief History of Repressive Regimes and Their Gun Laws      Cache   Translate Page      

Arguably one of the rights that has seen less government encroachment in the US — in contrast to other activities such as commerce — gun rights are now witnessing unprecedented attacks at the state level and even from politically-connected corporate entities.

Although gun control laws are not created equally in terms of overall impact, gun confiscation holds a special place in the halls of political repression. A trip down memory lane will give us a refresher of how gun confiscation has helped consolidate government power.

The Soviet Union and Its Satellite States

The Soviet Union left its mark as one of the deadliest political regimes in the history of mankind. However, it could not get away with such atrocities without having a complete monopoly on the use of force.

Ironically, the famous Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin called for a proletarian militia in his essay Letters From Afar. Lenin charted out his vision in the following passage:

What kind of militia do we need, the proletariat, all the toiling people? A genuine people’s militia, i.e., one that, first, consists of the entire population, of all adult citizens of both sexes; and, second, one that combines the functions of a people’s army with police functions, with the functions of the chief and fundamental organ of public order and public administration.

Lenin’s ideas manifested themselves in military form once the Military Revolutionary Committee was created in late 1917. Despite the ostensive revolutionary nature, these military forces morphed into another enforcement arm of the State.

To maintain its iron grip, the Soviet Union had to turn to the most proven form of suppression — gun confiscation. On December 10, 1918, the Council of People’s Commissar mandated that Soviet citizens turn in their firearms. Failure to do so, led to criminal prosecution.

Soviet gun control laws remained tight in the following decades, although the government did go out of its way to give Communist Party affiliates privileged access to firearms.

Once World War II came to an end, Eastern European countries took after their Soviet overlords and started implementing gun confiscation, as detailed in Firearms Possession by 'Non-State Actors': The Question of Sovereignty. Several countries stood out during this time period:

  • Bulgaria: Once Communists took power in 1944, they confiscated privately owned firearms.
  • East Germany: Private gun ownership was banned, even though the government did allow for agricultural collectives to possess hunting weapons while taking part in government-supervised hunts.
  • Hungary: Communist Minister of the Interior, Lazlo Rajk dissolved all pistol and hunting clubs, while also dismantling other organizations that potentially posed a threat to government power.

Although the numbers are highly disputed, Robert Conquest contends in his book The Great Terror that at least 15 million people perished under Soviet rule.

Nazi Germany

These days the word Nazi is tossed around liberally, almost rendering its definition meaningless. Regardless, the history of Nazi Germany should never be forgotten. Interestingly, both sides of the gun debate make mistakes when discussing gun control policy in Nazi Germany.

The pro-gun control side claims that gun rights were actually expanded under Nazi rule, but there is more to this story. The marginal liberalization in gun laws specifically favored the German populace. Independent Institute Senior Fellow Stephen P. Halbrook gives a nuanced account of the Nazi’s gun policy:

In 1938, Hitler signed a new Gun Control Act. Now that many “enemies of the state” had been removed from society, some restrictions could be slightly liberalized, especially for Nazi Party members. But Jews were prohibited from working in the firearms industry, and .22 caliber hollow-point ammunition was banned.

In sum, the Jewish populace was disarmed and had no way of defending itself against the increasingly militant Nazi political operatives.

But pro-gun advocates aren’t exempt from making mistakes in their analysis either.

Second Amendment supporters often attribute gun control’s passage exclusively to Adolf Hitler’s government. However, a more thorough review of history demonstrates that the preceding Weimar government was responsible for passing gun registration. Weimar officials rationalized the passage of gun control in the name of public order, for fear of Nazis and Communists coming to blows on the street.

Unbeknownst to the Weimar government, their gun control framework would later be exploited by the Nazis to disarm the Jews and subject them to one of the most horrific cases of genocide in human history.

Cuba

Once one of Latin America’s most prosperous countries, Cuba succumbed to the siren song of socialism when Fidel Castro took power in 1959.

Similar to the Nazi case, Castro took advantage of firearm registration lists established by the previous government. Once the dictator Fulgencio Batista was deposed, Castro’s tyrannical instincts kicked in. In a speech at the Maestre Barracks of San Ambrosio, Castro exclaimed:

Guns, for what? To fight against whom? Against the Revolutionary government that has the support of the people?

Following this speech, gun confiscation slowly commenced. The Castro government started by targeting rival revolutionary groups, who fought the Batista government but were not Communist affiliates. Then, the Castro government broadened the definition of “rival revolutionaries” to disarm more of the populace.

To this day, Cuba has strict firearms regulations. Government entities like the National Revolutionary Police, the Ministry of the Interior, and the Ministry of the Revolutionary Armed Forces are in charge of regulating firearms.

Like other socialist programs, the Cuban experience has been filled with death and economic destruction. Estimates point to 141,000 Cubans murdered at the hands of the Castro regime, with millions of Cubans fleeing to the United States in search of greener pastures.

Venezuela

It’s no secret that the Venezuelan government has eviscerated property rights and fundamental civil liberties in the crisis beleaguered country. But how has the Venezuelan government been able to stay in power? The Venezuelan government’s civilian disarmament campaign is an oft-ignored abuse of human rights in discussions concerning Venezuela’s political crisis.

The Venezuelan government started by passing the original version of the Control of Arms, Munitions and Disarmament Law. Since then, the law has been modified to broaden the scope of the firearms regulated by the Venezuelan Armed forces, who have the power to register, control, and confiscate firearms.

The day of reckoning came when Venezuela banned the sale of firearms and ammo in 2012, under the guise of fighting crime. Despite the gun ban in place, crime rates continue to skyrocket.

Now Venezuelans have no way of defending themselves against a government that is free to muzzle their speech, expropriate their wealth, debase their currency, and starve them to death. And if that weren’t enough, the average Venezuelan must contend with the constant threat of common criminals and colectivos, Venezuela’s infamous pro-government paramilitary units.

Even in the 21st century, the nasty effects of gun confiscation are still being felt.

Is South Africa Next?

South Africa has recently embraced gun confiscation. According to The Citizen, the Constitutional Court of South Africa ordered the confiscation of about 300,000 firearms on June 7, 2018. To say political tension in South Africa is mounting would be an understatement.

Since ending apartheid, South Africa has embarked on a troubling route of economic statism. To make matters worse, the South African government is currently pursuing land redistribution in order to address so-called racial injustices.

Although politicians from the African National Congress (ANC) party have recently backed down from ramming land confiscation legislation into law, there is no telling what could be in store for South Africans now that gun confiscation has been activated.

It would be a mistake to believe South Africa’s gun confiscation ordinance was a random occurrence; it’s the logical conclusion of South Africa’s current gun control framework. The genesis of this troubling development began with the passage of the Firearms Control Act of 2000, which features an extensive system of gun registration.

It’s easy for anti-gun entities to identify gun owners and confiscate their firearms in the long-run when they have their information on the books. With the wrong political actors in power, yesterday's “common-sense” gun control could be tomorrow's vehicle for gun confiscation.

Time will tell if South Africa will descend down the path of tyranny, but its gun control experiment may prove to be fatal should the country take a turn for the worse.

Gun control may not have a path dependency toward tyranny. However, gun confiscation is an egregious form of gun control that allows authoritarians to steamroll their subjects at will. The way gun confiscation enhances the consolidation of state power is undeniable. A disarmed populace is simply no match for a repressive apparatus that has a monopoly on the use of force.

Gun rights might not guarantee victory against tyrants, but being deprived of them all but guarantees submission.

          EU triggering of Article 7 against Hungary reveals its authoritarianism      Cache   Translate Page      
The EU parliament's vote to trigger Article 7, allowing punitive measures against Hungary, has provoked disbelief and indignation, with commentators describing the "authoritarian" move as contrary to the bloc's own self-interests. Citing Hungary's anti-immigration policies and concerns about "media suppression," the European Parliament voted on Wednesday to invoke the provision, known as the 'nuclear option,' which is applied when there is "a clear risk of a serious breach" of EU values by one of the member states. Voting against its own interests Implementing Article 7 allows for sanctions to be imposed on Budapest, including stripping the nation of its voting rights in the European Council. The motion, which passed 448-197 with 48 abstentions, was roundly condemned by prominent Eurosceptics. Former UKIP leader and champion of Brexit, Nigel Farage, warned that the vote revealed the ever-tightening "authoritarian grip" of the European Union. But those who support the European project and are working towards a more unified bloc should also be outraged, British historian, philosopher and author John Laughland told RT.

          A Brief History Of Repressive Regimes And Their Gun Laws      Cache   Translate Page      

Submitted by Jose Nino via The Mises Institute

Arguably one of the rights that has seen less government encroachment in the US — in contrast to other activities such as commerce — gun rights are now witnessing unprecedented attacks at the state level and even from politically-connected corporate entities.

Although gun control laws are not created equally in terms of overall impact, gun confiscation holds a special place in the halls of political repression. A trip down memory lane will give us a refresher of how gun confiscation has helped consolidate government power.

The Soviet Union and Its Satellite States

The Soviet Union left its mark as one of the deadliest political regimes in the history of mankind. However, it could not get away with such atrocities without having a complete monopoly on the use of force.

Ironically, the famous Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin called for a proletarian militia in his essay Letters From Afar. Lenin charted out his vision in the following passage:

What kind of militia do we need, the proletariat, all the toiling people? A genuine people’s militia, i.e., one that, first, consists of the entire population, of all adult citizens of both sexes; and, second, one that combines the functions of a people’s army with police functions, with the functions of the chief and fundamental organ of public order and public administration.

Lenin’s ideas manifested themselves in military form once the Military Revolutionary Committee was created in late 1917. Despite the ostensive revolutionary nature, these military forces morphed into another enforcement arm of the State.

To maintain its iron grip, the Soviet Union had to turn to the most proven form of suppression — gun confiscation. On December 10, 1918, the Council of People’s Commissar mandated that Soviet citizens turn in their firearms. Failure to do so, led to criminal prosecution.

Soviet gun control laws remained tight in the following decades, although the government did go out of its way to give Communist Party affiliates privileged access to firearms.

Once World War II came to an end, Eastern European countries took after their Soviet overlords and started implementing gun confiscation, as detailed in Firearms Possession by 'Non-State Actors': The Question of Sovereignty. Several countries stood out during this time period:

  • Bulgaria: Once Communists took power in 1944, they confiscated privately owned firearms.
  • East Germany: Private gun ownership was banned, even though the government did allow for agricultural collectives to possess hunting weapons while taking part in government-supervised hunts.
  • Hungary: Communist Minister of the Interior, Lazlo Rajk dissolved all pistol and hunting clubs, while also dismantling other organizations that potentially posed a threat to government power.

Although the numbers are highly disputed, Robert Conquest contends in his book The Great Terror that at least 15 million people perished under Soviet rule.

Nazi Germany

These days the word Nazi is tossed around liberally, almost rendering its definition meaningless. Regardless, the history of Nazi Germany should never be forgotten. Interestingly, both sides of the gun debate make mistakes when discussing gun control policy in Nazi Germany.

The pro-gun control side claims that gun rights were actually expanded under Nazi rule, but there is more to this story. The marginal liberalization in gun laws specifically favored the German populace. Independent Institute Senior Fellow Stephen P. Halbrook gives a nuanced account of the Nazi’s gun policy:

In 1938, Hitler signed a new Gun Control Act. Now that many “enemies of the state” had been removed from society, some restrictions could be slightly liberalized, especially for Nazi Party members. But Jews were prohibited from working in the firearms industry, and .22 caliber hollow-point ammunition was banned.

In sum, the Jewish populace was disarmed and had no way of defending itself against the increasingly militant Nazi political operatives.

But pro-gun advocates aren’t exempt from making mistakes in their analysis either.

Second Amendment supporters often attribute gun control’s passage exclusively to Adolf Hitler’s government. However, a more thorough review of history demonstrates that the preceding Weimar government was responsible for passing gun registration. Weimar officials rationalized the passage of gun control in the name of public order, for fear of Nazis and Communists coming to blows on the street.

Unbeknownst to the Weimar government, their gun control framework would later be exploited by the Nazis to disarm the Jews and subject them to one of the most horrific cases of genocide in human history.

Cuba

Once one of Latin America’s most prosperous countries, Cuba succumbed to the siren song of socialism when Fidel Castro took power in 1959.

Similar to the Nazi case, Castro took advantage of firearm registration lists established by the previous government. Once the dictator Fulgencio Batista was deposed, Castro’s tyrannical instincts kicked in. In a speech at the Maestre Barracks of San Ambrosio, Castro exclaimed:

Guns, for what? To fight against whom? Against the Revolutionary government that has the support of the people?

Following this speech, gun confiscation slowly commenced. The Castro government started by targeting rival revolutionary groups, who fought the Batista government but were not Communist affiliates. Then, the Castro government broadened the definition of “rival revolutionaries” to disarm more of the populace.

To this day, Cuba has strict firearms regulations. Government entities like the National Revolutionary Police, the Ministry of the Interior, and the Ministry of the Revolutionary Armed Forces are in charge of regulating firearms.

Like other socialist programs, the Cuban experience has been filled with death and economic destruction. Estimates point to 141,000 Cubans murdered at the hands of the Castro regime, with millions of Cubans fleeing to the United States in search of greener pastures.

Venezuela

It’s no secret that the Venezuelan government has eviscerated property rights and fundamental civil liberties in the crisis beleaguered country. But how has the Venezuelan government been able to stay in power? The Venezuelan government’s civilian disarmament campaign is an oft-ignored abuse of human rights in discussions concerning Venezuela’s political crisis.

The Venezuelan government started by passing the original version of the Control of Arms, Munitions and Disarmament Law. Since then, the law has been modified to broaden the scope of the firearms regulated by the Venezuelan Armed forces, who have the power to register, control, and confiscate firearms.

The day of reckoning came when Venezuela banned the sale of firearms and ammo in 2012, under the guise of fighting crime. Despite the gun ban in place, crime rates continue to skyrocket.

Now Venezuelans have no way of defending themselves against a government that is free to muzzle their speech, expropriate their wealth, debase their currency, and starve them to death. And if that weren’t enough, the average Venezuelan must contend with the constant threat of common criminals and colectivos, Venezuela’s infamous pro-government paramilitary units.

Even in the 21st century, the nasty effects of gun confiscation are still being felt.

Is South Africa Next?

South Africa has recently embraced gun confiscation. According to The Citizen, the Constitutional Court of South Africa ordered the confiscation of about 300,000 firearms on June 7, 2018. To say political tension in South Africa is mounting would be an understatement.

Since ending apartheid, South Africa has embarked on a troubling route of economic statism. To make matters worse, the South African government is currently pursuing land redistribution in order to address so-called racial injustices.

Although politicians from the African National Congress (ANC) party have recently backed down from ramming land confiscation legislation into law, there is no telling what could be in store for South Africans now that gun confiscation has been activated.

It would be a mistake to believe South Africa’s gun confiscation ordinance was a random occurrence; it’s the logical conclusion of South Africa’s current gun control framework. The genesis of this troubling development began with the passage of the Firearms Control Act of 2000, which features an extensive system of gun registration.

It’s easy for anti-gun entities to identify gun owners and confiscate their firearms in the long-run when they have their information on the books. With the wrong political actors in power, yesterday's “common-sense” gun control could be tomorrow's vehicle for gun confiscation.

Time will tell if South Africa will descend down the path of tyranny, but its gun control experiment may prove to be fatal should the country take a turn for the worse.

Gun control may not have a path dependency toward tyranny. However, gun confiscation is an egregious form of gun control that allows authoritarians to steamroll their subjects at will. The way gun confiscation enhances the consolidation of state power is undeniable. A disarmed populace is simply no match for a repressive apparatus that has a monopoly on the use of force.

Gun rights might not guarantee victory against tyrants, but being deprived of them all but guarantees submission.

          ‘Serious breach’ or ‘blackmail’: What's EU Article 7 & why has it been used against Orban's Hungary?      Cache   Translate Page      

What is the sinister-sounding Article 7?

The article – one of eight - is part of the Treaty on European Union, which serves as its equivalent of a constitution, and has existed in various forms since 1992. It is a mechanism for internally punishing any of the 28 states that pose “clear risk of a serious breach” of the “values of respect for human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law and respect for human rights, including the rights of persons belonging to minorities.”

While it cannot be used to expel an EU member, a country can be stripped of its voting rights, and turned into a humiliated outcast at every European meeting. More likely, any specific proposed sanctions would incentivize changes to avoid that fate.

          Mind Blowing Highway Interchanges, Flyovers Around The World (Photos)      Cache   Translate Page      

Interchanges are great, because unlike standard intersections, they allow free flow of intersecting roads rather than having to stop at traffic lights or roundabouts.

But sometimes interchanges can be extremely complicated with many junctions and even several levels (those are called stack interchanges).

Such a complicated interchange is sometimes nicknamed “Spaghetti Junction“.

Take a look at these photos of mind-blowing interchanges.
