  • Orthodox Russia Seeks Its Place in a Future Conservative European Union’

    04/17/2019 10:35:39 AM PDT · by CondoleezzaProtege · 15 replies
    Andrey Melnikov, the editor of NG-Religii, reports on a conference this week at the Russian Cultural Center in Budapest devoted to the growth of conservative national consciousness in the members of the European Union and the rest of the world. The meeting, which attracted representatives from 24 different countries, is formally the 25th Conference of the International Foundation for the Unity of Orthodox Peoples, a group that, in Melnikov’s words, has “positioned itself as an international conservative organization” which criticizes globalization from the perspective of “fundamentalist Christianity.” The meeting is taking place in Budapest, the Moscow journalist says, because Hungary...

    The champion of Donald Trump’s “America First” agenda, who was invited to speak at the National Front party congress in northern France by Marine Le Pen, spoke only about her 28-year old niece at their joint press conference. “She is not simply a rising star on the right in France. She’s one of the most impressive people in the entire world,” Bannon, an American nationalist who ran the right-wing Breitbart News, told reporters, without mentioning his host Marine Le Pen. Bannon met Marion, who temporarily withdrew from politics after her aunt’s presidential election defeat last May, at the CPAC conservative...
  • Former Pope Benedict Is Right: Europe Needs to Appreciate Its Christian Roots

    04/15/2019 4:45:31 PM PDT · by CondoleezzaProtege · 14 replies ^ | Michael J. Gaynor
    Pope Benedict XVI, previously known as Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, should be heeded: he knows what of he speaks. In the first general audience of his pontificate he stressed Europe's "inalienable" Christian roots. The wisdom of his choice of the his papal name Benedict (the name of Pope Benedict XV, "a courageous and authentic prophet of peace" who led the Catholic Church during the dark years of World War I, and Saint Benedict, founder of the Benedictine order and one of the patron saints of Europe) is being confirmed by the current rioting in Europe by an Islamic extremist criminal element...
  • European Churches: Vandalized, Defecated On, and Torched "Every Day"

    In Germany, four separate churches were vandalized and/or torched in March alone. "In this country," PI-News, a German news site, explained, "there is a creeping war against everything that symbolizes Christianity: attacks on mountain-summit crosses, on sacred statues by the wayside, on churches... and recently also on cemeteries." In virtually every instance of church attacks, authorities and media obfuscate the identity of the vandals. In those rare instances when the Muslim (or "migrant") identity of the destroyers is leaked, the desecraters are then presented as suffering from mental health issues. "Hardly anyone writes and speaks about the increasing attacks on...

    A new study by a Spanish pharmacologist has revealed traces of human faeces in the vast majority of the cannabis sold on the streets of Madrid, Spain, and that it presents a very real health danger. Manuel Pérez Moreno released his findings in the journal Science Direct and claimed to have found Escherichia coli bacteria, commonly known as E. Coli, in the vast majority of the 90 samples he had purchased off the street and tested, broadcaster RTL reports.According to Moreno, the presence of E. Coli can be explained as being related to the faecal matter contained within the cannabis....

    A look inside the peace plan, and what it will change and what it will not include. Trump's continued support of Israel. Trouble in the Turkish elections. New unrest in Libya and Algeria. The leaders of Europe, and France's collusion with Netanyahu's opponent. Russia now friendly with Israel but the friendship may not last. So very, very chock full of good information and of course good news.

    THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court said Friday that her U.S. visa has been revoked, in what appears to a crackdown on the global tribunal by the Trump administration. In a statement confirming the revocation, Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda’s office stressed that she “has an independent and impartial mandate” under the court’s founding treaty, the Rome Statute.

    A German politician could become an "absolutely controlled" MP in the Bundestag, according to Russian documents seen by BBC Newsnight. The politician, Markus Frohnmaier, is a member of the German parliament from the far-right AfD party. The documents date back to April 2017, when Mr Frohnmaier was a candidate for election to the Bundestag. He was subsequently elected in September 2017.
  • DAILY CALLER EXPOSE: FISA Motion Allowed FBI To Share US Citizens’ Info With Foreign Agencies

    A secret memo granted broad rights to the FBI to share information gathered under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act with foreign officials. Two-way exchange of information with foreign officials could allow the politicized targeting of Americans, since foreign nations aren’t obligated to uphold the U.S. Constitution. The efforts by the Justice Department to gather information on Trump aides repeatedly involved figures associated with foreign agencies. Foreign allies strongly opposed President Donald Trump declassifying information illuminating the investigation into Russian collusion. A 2012 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court motion contained a little-noticed provision expanding the FBI’s ability to share information with foreign...
  • Life Without NATO?

    President Trump has considered pulling out of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), and former Clinton administration National Security Council member Hans Binnendijk is concerned. Responding to an op-ed by Barry Posen in The New York Times that argued for “reconsidering America’s role in NATO,” Binnendijk lamented the consequences of even this moderate proposal would be “all negative,” and that the world would be “more dangerous and less prosperous.” It is telling that Binnendijk never says U.S. national security would be jeopardized if NATO was no more. Perhaps he neglects this claim because he knows it would be false.NATO is...

    British Roman Catholic mother and journalist Caroline Farrow has faced horrific harassment from pro-transgender activists for her disagreement on transgender issues. Farrow spoke with PJ Media about this harassment and the local police response. "I’ve just got a team of people, they seem to attach so much importance and so much weight to what I say and they’re just determined to shut down my point of view," Farrow told PJ Media. "They feel that they can be as abusive as they like: they can target my family, target my children, and I deserve it because I’m full of 'hate' because...

    "There are no ideal choices available and there are very good arguments against any possible outcome at the moment," said one lawmaker LONDON — Britain's Parliament still can't agree on how to move forward on Brexit. Four nonbinding measures that would have outlined a potential way forward on exiting the European Union all failed to gain a majority Monday. The vote came after lawmakers last week rejected a withdrawal agreement proposed by Prime Minister Theresa May for a third time. Two of these votes were the largest and fourth largest losses in parliamentary history. Despite these defeats, May is reportedly...

    Crisis ^ | 04.01.19 | Europe’s War on Christianity
    As the influence of Islam on European society has increased, so have anti-Christian attitudes. While civil authorities have gone out of their way to accommodate both Muslim immigrants and Muslim beliefs, their treatment of Christians has been quite different. One form that the accommodation of Islam has taken is an increased policing of Christian activities and beliefs. For many decades we’ve heard that Christianity in Europe is in “decline.” But recently the decline seems to have accelerated. Hostility to Christianity is now so widespread that it’s no exaggeration to speak of a war on Christians. In fact, “Britain’s War on...

    The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has decided that it is illegal to criticize the Islamic prophet Mohammad for marrying a nine-year-old girl (Big League Politics) – The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), the international body tasked with ruling over the 47 member states of the Council of Europe, made a ruling this week that effectively criminalizes telling the truth about the Islamic faith by essentially affirming a ruling made by the Austrian courts against Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff after she derided the prophet Muhammad’s for having a six-year-old child bride. It was decided that Sabaditsch-Wolff’s comments “were likely to...

    To shoot 'The Brink', an illuminating new documentary about former Trump strategist Steve Bannon, director Alison Klayman embedded herself with his entourage for a year, beginning in October, 2017 and finishing just after the 2018 midterm elections. Klayman captured extraordinarily candid moments from Bannon, and the film colours in and rounds out the black-and-white one-dimensionality with which he has often been depicted in the media. Like anyone, Bannon is complex... What he does genuinely seem to believe is that America is at an inflection point in its history, a Fourth Turning, in the parlance of sociologist Talcott Parsons, a foundational...

    Voters in Slovakia are selecting a new head of state in a runoff that could give the country its first female president. Zuzana Caputova, an environmental activist, is up against European Commission vice-president Maros Sefcovic in the vote for the largely ceremonial post in the nation of 5.4 million. Caputova won the first round two week ago with 40.6 percent of the vote while Sefcovic was a distant second with 18.7 percent. Caputova attracts voters appalled by corruption and mainstream politics. Sefcovic is a career diplomat who is supported by the leftist Smer-Social Democracy party, a major force in Slovak...

    science news ^ | 20mar19 | Editorial staff
    The Younger Dryas impact hypothesis, also known as Clovis comet hypothesis, posits that the hemisphere-wide debris field of a large, disintegrating asteroid (or comet) struck North America, South America, Europe, and western Asia approximately 12,800 years ago. This event triggered extensive biomass burning, brief impact winter, climate change, and contributed to extinctions of late Pleistocene megafauna. Controversial from the time it was proposed, this hypothesis continues to be contested by those who prefer to attribute the end-Pleistocene reversal in (global) warming entirely to terrestrial causes. Now, University of California, Santa Barbara’s Professor James Kennett and co-authors present further geologic and...

    Austria: Muslim migrant, an Islamic State supporter, arrested for trying to derail German trains He was granted “refugee” status about 20 years ago. But the Islamic State, with its Islamic appeals, overcame any gratitude he may have had toward those who welcomed him. “Austria arrests man suspected of attacks on German trains,” by Alistair Walsh, DW, March 27, 2019: A 42-year-old Iraqi father allegedly attempted two attacks on Germany’s high-speed train lines. Police were reportedly able to track him down through vital clues he left at the scene. Austrian police arrested a man suspected of carrying out two attacks on...
