  • Why The U.S. Ranks At The Bottom In A Foreign Aid Index (According to this freelance writer)

    The United States' commitment to global development does not look good compared with that of other wealthy countries — and it's likely to get worse. According to an annual index released Tuesday by the Center for Global Development that ranks 27 of the world's wealthiest countries, the U.S. scored dead last on foreign aid contributions and quality — despite being the largest donor in dollar amount. That's because in 2017, it allocated a mere 0.18 percent of its gross national income for development assistance. That is well short of the 0.7 percent that wealthy countries have committed to strive for...

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel will allegedly fire the head of the country’s domestic intelligence service after he countered claims of “migrant hunts” during one of the many Chemnitz protests. Government sources claim that the German leader has decided to relieve Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV) chief Hans-Georg Maassen of his post following a number of incidents including his rejection of a video that allegedly showed angry demonstrators in Chemnitz “hunting” migrants following the murder of Daniel Hillig, Die Welt reports. The sources claim that Merkel decided the fate of the spy chief over the weekend, telling...

    Fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who is currently under federal investigation for improper media disclosures, will release a book this winter chronicling his time at the bureau and serve up harsh criticism of President Donald Trump. In a statement released Tuesday, St. Martin’s Press announced McCabe’s book, The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump, will hit stores December 4. According to the publisher, the book will shine a light on “a series of troubling, contradictory, and often bizarre conversations” the ex-deep stater shared with President Trump, convincing him the “actions of this...
  • How the U.S. Is Recovering Oil from a Nuked Warship: Prinz Eugen, once the pride [tr]

    The U.S. military is trying to recover the oil form a ship that's been underwater for 72 years. In an interesting twist, it's not even an American warship. The United States captured the German heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen as a war prize after the end of World War II. The Prinz Eugen capsized in 1946 after being nuked—twice—during the atomic bomb tests at Bikini Atoll. For decades, experts have feared that the radioactive ship's oil might leak into the Pacific. Now the Pentagon is trying to do something about it.

    Greece is a country in the European Union which serves as a point of entry for thousands and thousands of so-called refugees arriving on the Old Continent from Africa via boat. Today’ news is about a bleeding heart refugee loving NGO, called Emergency Response Centre International (ERCI), which has made over half a billion Euros yearly since 2015 by helping smuggling over 70,000 so-called refugees (actually illegal aliens) into Greece. The NGO made $2325 (2000 euros) from each illegal alien that was smuggled into the country. On top of that, ERCI got $5815 per immigrant, courtesy of various governmental programs,...

    Everyone knows the German government of Angela Merkel pays very little for its own defense, preferring to rely on the American taxpayer and their nuclear umbrella for Deutschland’s defense and security. U.S. Presidend Donald Trump has been very vocal about the situation, demanding Germany increase its defense spending from the current 1.2% of GDP to 2% immediately, the NATO target, not in the next decade as Germany wants (Give me a hamburger today and I’ll pay you Tuesday). But there is a much bigger story here. The real story is how the culturally Marxist ‘climate change’ agenda has pushed Germany...

    Organizers of a music festival in Düsseldorf, Germany, withdrew their invitation to composer and singer Brian Eno over his longtime involvement in attempts to boycott Israel, JTA reported on Friday. Eno was slated to appear at the Electricity Conference festival in October, but last week he was among a group of artists who signed a letter urging a boycott of the Eurovision Song Contest that will be held next year in Israel. Festival organizer Rüdiger Esch told the Westdeutsche Zeitung that it “was the only right decision” to disinvite Eno because “we don’t want to invite anyone who supports activities...

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel visited the Baltic state of Lithuania on Friday to meet the Lithuanian president and the three Baltic prime ministers to tell them she understood but didn’t care about their security concerns and that of the NATO alliance. She insisted the Nord Stream II pipeline ‘makes economic sense’ and will go forward. The laying of pipeline has already begun in the Baltic Sea. Germany spends a woefully inadequate amount on its own national defense, preferring to rely on the American taxpayer and their nuclear umbrella. She also said sanctions will remain on Russia until there is progress...

    President Donald Trump publicly rebuked German Chancellor Angela Merkel on July 11 for Germany’s decision to buy a massive amount of gas from Russia. “I think it’s very sad,” he said. "Germany is totally controlled by Russia,” he later said, “I think it’s a very bad thing for nato and I don’t think it should have happened.” Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 are key components of Putin’s plan to tighten his grip on nations in Eastern Europe that used to be part of the Soviet Empire. Since these pipelines travel directly from Russia to Germany, they enable Putin to...

    Hypocrisy appears to be the leading trait we can expect from high-ranking UN officials such as the High Commissioner for Human Rights. Sadly, Ms. Bachelet is no exception The new United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet has unfortunately continued the one-sided anti-Israel narrative that her anti-Semitic predecessor, Prince Zeid Raad Al Hussein, propagated whenever he got a chance. In her first speech to the UN Human Rights Council on September 10, 2018, Ms. Bachelet blamed Israel’s so-called “blockade” and its alleged “excessive use of force” for all the problems suffered by the Palestinians in Hamas-run Gaza. “Prospects...

    English police are now calling on citizens to report hate incidents. Reporting friends and neighbors to the police has terrible historical connotation, and for good reason. It is legitimate fascism. Timid citizenries are easy to control — fear that even a coworker could file a report to the police can keep people in check.The latest call for action in England is from the South Yorkshire Police on Twitter. Similar reporting requests are posted on the United Kingdom government website. Two tweets from the South Yorkshire Police over the weekend requesting citizens to report hate matters to police should grab...

    Mr Farage spoke highly about the country’s leader Viktor Orban and urged him to not stand to be lectured by the EU but instead follow the UK’s lead and simply leave the bloc. The comments come a day before MEPs are set to vote on whether to trigger Article 7, which is an EU law drafted to ensure respect for democracy and the rule of law as they are worried Hungary is becoming a dictatorship. Mr Orban has said that triggering Article 7 would be an “abuse of power” of the EU. Brussels is concerned with Mr Orban's attitude towards...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is closing the Palestine Liberation Organization’s mission in Washington, the latest U.S. blow against the Palestinians and an international court during the stalled Mideast peace process. Some things to know: THE GIST The administration’s move to close the PLO office in Washington is not directly connected to the Trump White House’s opposition to the International Criminal Court, although the administration is trying to link them. But the Trump administration is trotting out discussions about the two on the same day — Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year — in a move certain to inflame...

Bolton will reportedly threaten the International Criminal Court with sanctions if it carries out investigations into the U.S. and Israel.

The report suggests Germany's conservative defense minister, Ursula von der Leyen, has responded to a US request, which was followed by a meeting of high-ranking ministry and military officials from both countries.
