How was Trump possible? Sinclair Broadcasting (Republican Propaganda media) was made possible by Democrats:

 

“The Telecommunications Act of 1996 helped pave the way for Sinclair’s broadcasting monopoly.

In 1996, President Bill Clinton pass the Telecommunications Act, the largest overhaul of the country’s telecommunications legislation in over 60 years.

For decades, the FCC enforced what was known as the rule of seven, prohibiting any one company from owning more than seven radio stations or seven television networks.

Now, a single entity can own as much as 35 percent of the market share.”

 

www.facebook.com/photo?fbid=3501277883298203&set=a.68...

 

Bill Clinton was a multi-faceted disaster. In his craven pursuit of appeasing commercial interests (which can be expected of dementia addled Biden) - even before Citizens United - the Telecommunications Act wasn’t his only disaster. Namely, Clinton repealed Glass Steagall Act of 1932 and this made a key contribution to the resulting financial crisis of 2007-2008. Here is what Wikileaks says:

 

“In November 1999, President Bill Clinton publicly declared "the Glass–Steagall law is no longer appropriate".[8][9]

 

Some commentators have stated that the GLBA's repeal of the affiliation restrictions of the Glass–Steagall Act was an important cause of the financial crisis of 2007–2008. Nobel Prize in Economics laureate Joseph Stiglitz argued that the effect of the repeal was "indirect": "[w]hen repeal of Glass-Steagall brought investment and commercial banks together, the investment-bank culture came out on top".[10][11] Economists at the Federal Reserve, such as Chairman Ben Bernanke, have argued that the activities linked to the financial crisis were not prohibited (or, in most cases, even regulated) by the Glass–Steagall Act”

Mathew L Burst:

 

“If anyone wonders why so many of the swing states in the election are shifting to overwhelmingly Biden toward the end of vote counting, it is simple, and not exactly rocket science. Most states count in-person ballots first, and mail-in ballots second. Perhaps not surprisingly, the pandemic has played a role. Those who downplay the seriousness of the pandemic strongly lean toward one side of the political spectrum, and most of them likely voted in person. Scientists like me, however, who could never support any candidate that repeatedly denies basic science, peddles lies as truth, and essentially sells communism as "freedom" (again, it does not exactly require rocket science), take this pandemic seriously, and mailed in our vote. I suspect the a vast majority of mail-in votes were from people of a similar mindset to mine.”

“The aim of the EU Nitrates Directive is to reduce nitrates leaking into the environment in order to prevent pollution of water supplies. The widely accepted view is that this will also help protect threatened plant species which can be damaged by high levels of nutrients like nitrates in the soil and water. However, an international team of researchers including the Universities of Göttingen, Utrecht and Zurich, has discovered that many threatened plant species will actually suffer because of this policy. The results were published in Nature Ecology and Evolution.”

“Sub-Saharan Africa represents two-thirds of children living in households which income does not surpass $1.90 a day or less per person, which is the international measure for extreme poverty.

 

The United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) warned that 356 million children globally suffered extreme poverty before the COVID-19 pandemic and these estimations are likely to increase.

 

"These numbers alone should shock anyone. And the scale and depth of what we know about the financial hardships brought on by the pandemic are only set to make matters far worse. Governments urgently need a children’s recovery plan to prevent countless more children and their families from reaching levels of poverty unseen for many, many years," UNICEF Director of Programmes Sanjay Wijesekera stressed.

Negotiations on the specifics of the Paris Agreement are expected to continue at the Cop26 climate talks in Glasgow, UK, in November 2021.

One major point of contention is the use of the CDM Mechanism.

The CDM Mechanism was where Countries were allowed to offset emissions by investing in carbon-cutting projects in poorer nations and most developed countries have fulfilled their commitments.

It is anticipated the use of the CDM Mechanism may be eliminated.

UN Climate Change is expected to publish a formal review of countries’ carbon-cutting efforts during the period to 2020.

Although the US signed the protocol, it never ratified it. Japan, Russia, and Canada refused to take part in the second commitment period.”

We must accept that the Democratic Party is one of two parties making up America’s Fascist Leadership:

It is the corruption in the Democratic Party elections that is so infuriating. If Biden had won in a fair election that would be one thing, but when the media and the DNC gangs up on the people's candidate and does everything in their power from down right lying to flipping the machines, then I'll be damned if I will support that party. If anyone doesn't believe that happened, then go to TDMS Research and look at the exit polls for each state. They are so far off from the margin of error that, were those stats offered in a third world country, there would be an immediate redo of the election. We no longer have a democracy. I joined the party in 1965. NEITHER party now represents me or my values and I am not alone

“How do you de-fund the military of the world’s only super power that sees military might as the only option for global dominance, necessary for natural resources plunder, and war as a very profitable business, while catering to the sole interests of its bloated Industrial-Military Complex? Will thousands of peaceful demonstrators on its main cities do?

 

“The militarization of the police, moreover, can be seen as a by-product of the US’s over-reliance on the use of military force and war to solve all of its problems, to the near exclusion of all other alternatives. Indeed, the US has given up on trying to lead the world through economic and technological prowess, or through moral suasion. Instead, our leaders have decided that brute military force alone will allow the US to dominate the planet, and our nation’s coffers are being looted to the tune of over $1 trillion a year to do so. The result is the starving of our educational system, our social safety net and our nation’s vital infrastructure. This, of course, then leads to mass deprivation and despair which then leads to mass unrest. And, just as it deals with the rest of the world, our rulers have decided to deal with the unrest at home, not by solving the social ills plaguing this nation, or by fixing a few bridges or dams, but by beating us down with military-style violence.”

“A good no frills piece on white supremacy.

 

“Let us be very clear: The Republican Party’s “Southern Strategy” to win elections by appealing to poor and working-class white people’s fears of Black people, and their fear of no longer being able to feel superior to another race, as the Civil Rights movement gathered steam - was an intentional strategy to use white supremacy to protect the wealth and power of the oligarchs.

 

The logic of white supremacy that underpins the Southern Strategy was, and still is, a part of a conscious war by the billionaire class to dismantle any limits on capitalism in the United States, and destroy the social insurance programs brought about by the New Deal and the Great Society aimed at putting a floor on poverty, or at least ensure that such policies won’t be extended further.

This strategy was popularized by Richard Nixon in his successful campaign for president in 1968, but it has been refined, made more overt, and weaponized in just about every Republican campaign of the past 50 years, reaching its apex on June 16, 2015, when Donald Trump rode down the escalator of Trump Tower, denouncing Mexicans as criminals and rapists, as he announced his candidacy for president.””

Fossil Oligarchs have seized control of Alberta:

“From Kevin Van Tighem: “It's far worse now than when this article ( which I wrote) was published. At the time it was written, the Alberta Coal Policy -- established by the Peter Lougheed government after extensive public consultation -- protected most of the Eastern Slopes from coal strip mining. After meeting privately with coal lobbyists, the Jason Kenney government has now done away with that policy. Vast areas of the mountains and foothills are now open for mountaintop removal mines. And, in fact, there has been a run on coal leases over the last month -- it only costs a few bucks to lease a large amount of land -- and bulldozers are at work out there today, cutting new roads and exploratory trenches all over the place.

 

Destroying our water source areas, their wildlife and fish habitats and the scenery we all love is something only the most wilfully blind and mindlessly rapacious of governments would consider. It appears that that is what we have stuck ourselves with.”

“"Fox News on Friday removed manipulated images that had appeared on its website as part of the outlet’s coverage of protests over the killing of George Floyd, which has occasioned peaceful assemblies in cities across the country and, in Seattle, given rise to an unusual experiment in self-government.

 

The misleading material ran alongside stories about a small expanse of city blocks in Seattle that activists have claimed as the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.

 

The police-free environment has become an object of scorn for right-wing activists and President Trump. As protesters occupied a six-block area surrounding an abandoned police precinct — and as Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan (D) promised to protect their First Amendment rights — Trump this week labeled them “domestic terrorists” and pledged to “take back” the city if state and local officials didn’t.

 

The occupation has been peaceful, with activists from around the city visiting the car-free streets for political speeches, concerts and free food. But Fox’s coverage contributed to the appearance of armed unrest. The misleading material spliced a June 10 photograph of an armed man at the Seattle protests with different photographs — one also from June 10, of a sign reading, “You Are Now Entering Free Cap Hill,” and others from images captured May 30 of a shattered storefront and other unrest downtown.

“No more anti-climate nominees. Sign the petition to reject Trump’s U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service pick Aurelia Skipwith.”

 

Quote:

Why shouldn’t Aurelia Skipwith lead the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS)?

 

1. Skipwith doesn’t have sufficient experience working on wildlife issues.

2. Skipwith is a Trump donor.

3. Skipwith was Trump’s 2016 campaign director who rallied behind the coal industry to undermine safeguards for Appalachia’s endangered species.

4. Skipwith is a former Monsanto employee.

5. Skipwith is hiding ties to former clients that pose conflicts-of-interest and her calendar shows even more potential conflicts-of-interest.

6. Skipwith is a threat to endangered species, wildlife refuges and the wildlife that depend on them.

“Life on the Brink: The Unsettling Numbers About How Grizzly Bears Die

 

There’s a hard truth about grizzly bears in the Lower 48. When adult bears die, it’s usually a human’s fault. In northwestern Montana from 2004-2014, a state-run study estimated 71 percent of independent grizzly mortalities had human causes.

 

I was floored when I read this number. It seemed unbelievable that these animals we associate with wilderness could have fatal encounters with humans so often. I wanted to know why and as I started to dig into the data, it became clear that grizzlies live in a minefield of deadly situations.

 

From estimates in the state’s 10-year study of the Northern Continental Divide Ecosystem (NCDE), poaching and malicious killing claim the most lives overall, nearly a third of human-related deaths at 32 percent. This is followed at 17 percent by agency removal, an event that occurs when a bear has had multiple negative encounters with humans. The sad truth is that some bears can’t lose these habits despite relocation and conflict mitigation efforts. In those cases, wildlife managers make the tough decision to kill them.

 

Fortunately, with proper steps taken other bears are able to avoid continued conflicts, and agency removal mortality numbers also include some live removals where bears are moved from the population in question. The rest of the human-caused grizzly mortalities are due to train and car collisions, self-defense, illegal defense of property, and illegal hunting due to misidentification. Just 12 percent of adult bears are estimated to die from natural causes, with 17 percent undetermined.

 

While a high rate of human-caused deaths is the reality for independent adult bears, it’s less common for cubs. I spoke with Cecily Costello, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks’ grizzly bear biologist for the NCDE and lead author of the 2004-2014 report. She explained that young grizzlies often won’t make it to adulthood due to natural causes, so for this age group, humans aren’t the biggest risk.

 

Time of year is also a factor. Grizzlies are at greater risk in fall, when bears enter hyperphagia and must eat an enormous amount each day to prepare for hibernation. This means more movement and more conflicts due to trash, livestock, run-ins with hunters, and other incidents as they search for food. In one grim week last October, six grizzly bears in Montana’s NCDE were killed, contributing to 51 overall deaths in the ecosystem in 2019, following an identical, record-setting 51 in 2018. Before then, yearly deaths in the NCDE had never surpassed 40. Meanwhile, farther south the number was even higher, with a record 69 recorded deaths in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem in 2019, 52 due to human causes.

“Yellowstone grizzlies being killed to protect Wyoming cows

 

There are tens of millions of cows in the U.S. but only about 700 grizzly bears in the remote and wild public lands known as the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem that include and surround America’s first national park. Grizzlies are listed as “threatened” under the Endangered Species Act and the federal government is legally mandated to stave off extinction by restoring a sustainable population of these national icons.

 

Part of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem includes 267 square miles of Wyoming’s Upper Green River area, where the number of conflicts between grizzly bears and privately owned livestock is much higher than other parts of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. At least 35 grizzly bears have been reported killed on the area’s cattle grazing allotments in just the last 10 years — that’s three and a half dead grizzlies a year in just this one area! And now the Forest Service has approved doubling the number of grizzly bears that can be killed to protect cattle in the next decade.

 

Despite two rulings by federal courts that the Yellowstone Ecosystem grizzlies must be protected under the Endangered Species Act, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service issued a Biological Opinion last year authorizing killing up to 72 grizzly bears over the next 10 years within the Upper Green River Area Rangeland Project.

 

In January the Alliance for the Wild Rockies, Yellowstone to Uintas Connection and Western Watersheds Project sent the Forest Service a 60-day notice of intent to sue if it went forward without complying with the National Environmental Policy Act and the Endangered Species Act. The agency ignored the notice and in March our three groups filed a lawsuit to stop the project. Cattle grazing is slated to begin again June 14 — and three grizzlies have already been killed, prompting us to seek a preliminary injunction to immediately halt the grizzly deaths.

 

The current grazing management practices on these allotments are certain to put more grizzlies in harm’s way. There is little or no evidence supporting the current plan of killing grizzly bears every year to resolve grizzly-cattle conflicts. This is especially true under the existing circumstances where cattle are placed in historic grizzly habitat. The bears are simply doing what bears do, which is seek out and eat available food. As a primary, high-quality food, sticking cows in grizzly habitat creates an “ecological trap” that results in dead bears.

“Reduced breeding success in urban bird populations is well documented but this study is the first to show that insect-rich supplementary food during nestling development largely mitigates these habitat differences. The findings indicate that food limitation in urban environments plays a crucial role in reducing the breeding success of insect-eating birds.

 

Dr Seress said: "Given the popularity of year-round bird feeding and the abundance of anthropogenic food sources in cities it might seem unlikely that urban birds have limited food. But quantity is not quality. Most songbirds require an insect-rich diet to successfully raise many and vigorous young, and urban areas generally support fewer insects than more natural habitats, especially caterpillars, which are key components of the optimal nestling diet for many species."

 

The authors say that artificially providing insect-rich food for birds in cities may not be the best solution. "Instead of directly supplying high-quality bird food to enhance urban birds' breeding success, we believe that management activities that aim to increase the abundance of insects in the birds' environment, would be more effective. Insects are the cornerstone of healthy and complex ecosystems and it is clear that we need more in our cities." said Dr Seress.

 

Increasing insect populations in cities in no easy task. The authors highlight that most urban green spaces are often highly managed which can reduce insect abundance. Modifying how green spaces are managed and encouraging practices like planting trees is likely to benefit both insect-eating birds as well as people.

 

While the findings demonstrate that providing high quality additional food can boost breeding success, it is unclear to what extent this could increase population size and stability, further work is needed to explore this.

 

Further research into the reduced abundance of insects in cities is also needed. Dr Karl Evans, co-author of the research, said "There is a clear need for additional research to understand which of the many aspects that differ between urban and more natural areas causes the reduced abundance of insects in our cities and towns. This is essential in order to improve the habitat quality of urban environments for nesting birds".”

“Regime Change Via Sanctions? U.S. Uses International Finance System to Strangle Venezuelan Economy”

 

www.democracynow.org/2019/3/14/regime_change_via_sanction...

The Democratic and Republican Party are hell bent on stealing Venezuela’s minerals, oil, gas, water, timber and other resources from the socialist Venezuelan People and turning them over to private international capital of the Super Rich. Among other things, the coming war with Venezuela is to garner benefits for the few at the expense of the many.

 

Now, since they got caught stealing the $80 odd billion of Venezuelans’ reserves and had to have the World Bank dummy up an excuse, they’ve been caught setting trucks full of medicine and other aid on fire and have had to drop the emotionally-charged-mega-lie excuse for yet another approach. Again, it was Guido\America’s People who set the trucks of aid on fire.

 

So now we have Bolton saying America is invoking the “Monroe Doctrine” to legitimize its actions.

 

The Monroe Doctrine really isn’t anything but catch phrase for something President Monroe said when addressing the American People back around 1800. It is not a law of America nor is it anything recognized by the international community. Seriously, it is just a phrase taken out of a Presidential Speech given over 200 years ago. Again, the Monroe Doctrine at best is merely a unilateral statement by the U.S. that has no standing in international law. America’s justification to declare war to steal Venezuela’s resources (however much theater Guido gives the impression of the US not being the primary party in the war) is simply fiat or “because we say so.”

 

Roosevelt tried to give it legitimacy, but it has never been used as a declaration of war under any circumstances remotely resembling what America is currently steeped in (or rather “stepped in” if you like.) Roosevelt was a long time ago under a different America. Kind of tough to claim that Maduro poses a threat to America, especially given the way Washington acts to its own citizens. Also, the whole idea of elevating this particular portion of what Monroe said to a “doctrine” comes from period of rabid White Superiority (recall the Supreme Court’s “Insular Cases”) in America.

Worse still there is an Evangelical “manifest destiny” thinking in what Bolton, Trump and Pelosi are trying to do to Venezuela for the Super Rich.

 

Finally, Pelosi and Trump are going to use something that a politician was said to take action on, couldn’t they have chosen something they could construe to mean the American government won’t view its people as an expandable cost of doing business? That Government won’t knowingly poison its own citizens? Instead they chose something a spoken phrase that will result in countless deaths and unimaginable suffering for an entire country’s people.

The mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso are a direct result of fascist ideology being allowed to flourish by our two-party political system and being championed by Trump, Bannon, and the Republican party.

 

Known only to a varying degree by a changing assortment of mainstream Americans at different times, myself included, Trump’s language has relied heavily on using a sort of catch-phrase and topic-spin “code” of sorts to show hate groups that he not only knows their playbook but supports their cause. With Bannon’s help Trump has been speaking white supremacists’, nationalist’s and neo-Nazis’ language. He knows how this language works in their playbook and has used it to kill people in Dayton and El Paso. Worse still, he’s still doing it (ref. BusinessInsider.com article below where the policy Trump proposes is actually from Hilter’s Nazi German.)

 

“Trump said people with mental illness should be 'involuntarily confined' if necessary to prevent mass shootings, despite research showing a lack of connection between mental illness and gun violence”

amp.businessinsider.com/trump-says-mentally-ill-people-sh...

 

Also, consider the following:

 

GEORGE CICCARIELLO-MAHER visiting scholar at NYU’s Hemispheric Institute from an interview with DemocracyNow:

 

“…people should read the manifesto of the El Paso shooter, because you see exactly that this is Trump’s rhetoric…”

 

“Trump withdrew and diverted funding away from taking seriously white nationalist violence in the United States, and has continually tried to emphasize instead the violence of so-called black nationalists, the violence of anti-fascists”

 

“Steve Bannon, again, represented a direct link with white supremacists and fascist organizations, who were directly involved in pushing policy initiatives in the White House.”

 

“"...Trump has coddled and encouraged white supremacists, because these are — you know, they represent an important part of his most radical base. He did not want to alienate them, "”

 

“"... in a context of devastation economically, in a context of economic suffering, allows people to be mobilized, to be radicalized by these white nationalist organizations,"

 

"...crystallization in the El Paso attack of the ways in which Trump’s anti-migrant panic and rhetoric and hatred, dehumanization of migrants, of the migrant caravan, has dovetailed seamlessly with broader white nationalist, white supremacist theories, ..."

“Controversial Christian Game Under Fire”

 

Quote:

“…the Antichrist is personified by a man who is both the Secretary-General of the UN and People Magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive." Perhaps Kofi Annan and George Clooney should start worrying.

 

Included in the list of enemies in the game are: rock musicians, urban "thug" types, dangerous "activists," and the ever-threatening "college educated cult leader," all of whom can be played, but none of whom can actually win the game. There are also reports that the evil characters are the only ones with ethnic names.

 

The term "physical and spiritual combat" is used to describe the process of laying waste to heathens with sophisticated military weapons, and then praying when you accidentally kill someone you shouldn't have (because that takes away from your "spirit points,") or using your coercive skills to show enemies "the truth."

I don’t’ want money for nothing; I want a job that pays for my basic needs.

I don’t’ want a free place to live; I want affordable housing that costs no more than 30% of my inomce.

I don’t’ want corporations to unprofitable; I want them out of the political election, regulatory and policy-making processes.

I don’t’ want elections to deliver the result I want; I want my vote to count.

I don’t’ want the wealthy to pay for everything; I want them to pay their fair share.”

The NRA is imploding in the wake of top Management being exposed for having bilked the organization for literally $100's MILLIONS over the past decades.

 

The lesson is clear. Members of the Republican apparatus are always purporting to champion some facet of their followers’ ideology (and sometimes do), but what they are really doing is taking advantage of them. Again, Republicans are NOT about optimizing the Economy or National Security, but and ideology of manipulation geared to concentrate wealth and the wealth of their donors regardless of the effects to the 99%. Sadly, NRA membership dues are NOT refundable.

It is being reported that President Trump was in the COCAINE trafficking business with Joseph Wexelbaum.

 

Additionally, recent document disclosures prove Trump’s business prowess is a complete fallacy:

 

“The Times obtained printouts from his official IRS tax transcripts for a 10-year period ending in ’94. In multiple years during that stretch, Trump appears to have lost more money than nearly any other individual taxpayer in the United States. In both 1990 and ’91, Trump lost more than $250 million, more than double any other individual U.S. taxpayer, according to IRS documents. In eight of the 10 years, Trump paid no federal income taxes.”

 

“His business model is the same as a mob bust-out. Get your hands on an enterprise, squeeze all the cash out of it, don’t pay your vendors, try to cheat as best you can your employees, don’t pay the bankers—and Trump once said, “I borrowed money knowing I wouldn’t pay it back”—and then leave the carcass and go on to the next deal.”

 

Trump is currently applying his “mob bust-out” business model to the United States of America.

“The Gulf of Mexico STILL hasn’t fully recovered from the 2010 BP Oil Spill. 11 workers died, 200 MILLION gallons of oil spilled into the Gulf, and local communities and economies were DEVASTATED.”

 

“But Trump doesn’t care -- Neither do the Big Oil & Gas insiders who have spent millions of dollars lobbying to reverse these protections that would prevent future oil spills. And they aren’t even trying to cover their tracks:”

 

'The new rules reference standards written by the American Petroleum Institute, a trade association, that could only be read on the group's website. To download or print the standards, members of the public must register with the trade association.'

Ames Laboratory -- -100%

National Renewable Energy Laboratory -- -79%

Los Alamos National Laboratory -- -74%

Washington Headquarters -- -73%

 

These cuts would terminate potentially TENS OF THOUSANDS of jobs in research and the energy sector as well as jeopardize the U.S. as a global leader on energy innovation. Years of research and progress would be brought to a SCREECHING halt -- At a time when our economy and ability to combat climate change is increasingly dependent on this research.

Apple is not unique. Increasingly the wealth of our nation is being transferred away from Government and into the hands of for-profit privately held firms. Contrast this with China where there is an emphasis on the State holding the wealth. The economic behavior these two approaches permit their respective countries is consequently very different. This is true regardless of the two countries different forms of governance and decision-making infrastructure. For instance, time and again, the American government has produced policy that amounts to dis-economic patronage of ossified pools of private capital (whose underlying business is no longer maximally competitive) while the Chinese government has seeded innovation that optimizes the competitive nature of the entire State.

Our votes should not go to the wrong people because someone failed to do their job right.

“The incorrect math on the Caucus Math Worksheets must not be changed to ensure the integrity of the process,” wrote the party lawyer, Shayla McCormally, according to an email sent by Troy Price, the chairman of the party, to its central committee members. The lawyer said correcting the math would introduce “personal opinion” into the official record of results.

The worksheets could not be changed even if they contained mistakes, according to the lawyer for the state party, because they were a legal record and altering them would be a crime.”

Die New York Times liebt die NATO, aber müssen Sie das dann auch tun? - Äußerungen in den sozialen Medien und in Gesprächen erwecken den Eindruck, Millionen US-Amerikaner, die bisher nichts oder wenig über die NATO wussten oder sie für die brutalste Militärmacht der Welt hielten, weil sie nach Meinung von Anhängern der Demokraten für den desaströsen Krieg in Afghanistan und nach Meinung von Anhängern der Republikaner für das Chaos in Libyen verantwortlich zu machen ist, hätten ihre Meinung geändert und hielten sie nun plötzlich für immens wichtig und unersetzlich. Diese Meinungsänderung scheint mir auf einer Reihe von Missverständnissen zu beruhen, die korrigiert werden müssen.

(Von David Swanson, 15.01.19, aus www.jwd-nachrichten.de/volltext190216.htm)

 

1. Die Kriege der NATO sind nicht legal, ganz im Gegenteil!

Wie die Vereinten Nationen, ist auch die NATO eine internationale Organisation (die an das Völkerrecht gebunden ist). Die NATO maßt sich aber an, Kriege auch ohne Zustimmung des UN-Sicherheitsrates führen zu dürfen, obwohl das nach (Art. 2 Ziffer 4) der UN-Charta (s. ..hier und ..hier) nicht zulässig, also illegal ist. Der Angriff auf einen anderen Staat ist (seitdem Nürnberger Prozess) "das schwerste aller Kriegsverbrechen" (..hier), auch dann, wenn er von der NATO ausgeht. Unter dem Deckmantel der NATO meinen die USA und andere NATO-Mitglieder ihren eindeutig völkerrechtswidrigen Angriffskriegen einen Anschein von Legalität verleihen und sie damit "akzeptabler" machen zu können. Diese Irreführung ist aber nicht der einzige Verstoß der NATO gegen Recht und Gesetz.

Wenn ein US-Krieg zum NATO-Krieg erklärt wird, verliert damit gleichzeitig der US-Kongress die Aufsicht über diesen Krieg. Die Weitergabe von Atomwaffen an Staaten "ohne Atomwaffen" (in Form der "nuklearen Teilhabe", s. ..hier ) verstößt auch dann gegen den Atomwaffensperrvertrag, wenn sie von den USA anderen NATO Staaten (Belgien, Deutschland, Italien, Niederlande und der Türkei, weitere Informationen dazu s. Grafik entnommen aus Google ..hier) gewährt wird .Außerdem fordert die NATO ihre Mitglieder ständig auf, "verteidigungsbereit", also auf einen Krieg vorbereitet zu sein, und zwingt sie zu hohen Ausgaben, die eigentlich auf dem sozialem Sektor notwendig wären.

 

2. Die NATO behauptet, ein Verteidigungsbündnis zu sein.

Nach Meinung der New York Times schreckt die NATO seit insgesamt 70 Jahren die Sowjetunion und Russland von einem Angriff auf den Westen ab. Diese Behauptung beruht auf der unbegründeten Annahme, die Sowjetunion oder Russland hätten in den 70 Jahren jemals vorgehabt, den Westen anzugreifen, und verschweigt dabei geflissentlich, dass in Wirklichkeit der Westen erst die Sowjetunion provoziert hat und jetzt Russland ständig provoziert. Die NATO-Staaten haben ihre Zusage, auf eine Osterweiterung der NATO zu verzichten, umgehend gebrochen (s. ..hier und ..hier ), die NATO bis an die Grenzen Russlands ausgeweitet und sogar Raketen in Grenznähe installiert (s. dazu auch ..hier und ..hier ).

Russland hat nichts dagegen unternommen. Seit dem Zerfall der Sowjetunion führt die NATO (völkerrechtswidrige) Angriffskriege. Erst hat sie Bosnien-Herzegowina, das Kosovo und Serbien bombardiert und dann weit außerhalb ihres Bündnisgebietes Afghanistan, Pakistan und Libyen angegriffen. Die NATO hat (u. a. auch) eine Partnerschaft mit Kolumbien geschlossen, obwohl das Land nicht am Atlantik liegt. Kein NATO-Mitglied wurde bisher angegriffen oder auch nur glaubhaft bedroht; bisher gab es nur "Terroranschläge" – die ohne den "War on Terror" überhaupt nicht stattgefunden hätten.

 

3. Trump hat überhaupt nicht vor, die NATO zu schwächen.

Während seiner Präsidentschaftskandidatur hat Donald Trump lautstark alles Mögliche angekündigt und manchmal auch das genaue Gegenteil versprochen. Bisher hat Trump aber überhaupt nichts Konkretes unternommen, um das Engagement der USA in der NATO einzuschränken oder aus der NATO auszutreten. Er hat die NATO-Mitglieder nur aufgefordert, mehr Geld für (US-) Waffen auszugeben, was natürlich (aus deren Sicht) keine gute Idee ist. Trotz seiner verbalen Angriffe auf die NATO, hat er europäische Politiker, die eine von den USA unabhängige europäische Armee anstreben, aufgefordert, stattdessen die NATO zu stärken.

 

4. Selbst wenn Trump die NATO zerstören wollte, wäre das kein Grund ihr nachzutrauern. Trump hat angekündigt, vieles ändern zu wollen, um es besser oder schlimmer zu machen. Soll man jetzt NAFTA, die Mainstream-Medien, den Kalten Krieg oder den (völlig überteuerten) Kampfjet F-35 gut finden, nur weil sich Trump negativ darüber geäußert hat? Muss man jetzt jede Untat der CIA oder des FBI bejubeln, weil beide Geheimdienste Trump am Zeug flicken wollen? Sollen wir uns die Atommacht Russland zum Feind machen, weil die Demokraten Trump zum "russischen Agenten" abstempeln wollen? Wenn Trump Russland mit NATO-Manövern reizt, Abrüstungsverträge oder das Atomabkommen mit dem Iran aufkündigt, die "russische Einmischung in der Ukraine" kritisiert oder versucht, russische Energiegeschäfte mit Europa zu torpedieren, wenn er russische Initiativen zur Verhinderung eines Cyberkrieges oder zum Verzicht auf Weltraumwaffen zurückweist – soll man ihn dann für seinen Widerstand gegen den "russischen Herrn und Meister" loben? Oder ist es nicht besser sich eine eigene Meinung zu bilden – auch über die NATO?

 

5. Trump arbeitet nicht für Russland, und Russland hat auch nichts mit seinem Wahlsieg zu tun.

In der New York Times war zu lesen: "Nach Meinung von US-Politikern verfolgte Russland mit der Einmischung in die US-Wahlen und den Bemühungen, seine ehemaligen Satellitenstaaten am Eintritt in die NATO zu hindern, das Ziel, den Feind in seiner Nachbarschaft zu schwächen". Muss man sich tatsächlich auf anonyme "US-Politiker" berufen, um Russlands offen geäußerte Besorgnis über das aggressive Militärbündnis NATO und dessen Truppenaufmarsch an seinen Grenzen zur Sprache zu bringen? Wurde bisher irgendein stichhaltiger Beweis dafür vorgelegt, dass sich Russland tatsächlich in "die US-Wahlen eingemischt hat", was die russische Regierung von Anfang an bestritten hat? Die US-Regierung hat sich hingegen schon wiederholt damit gebrüstet, Einfluss auf Wahlen (in anderen Staaten, auch) in Russland genommen zu haben.

Es gibt auch nicht den geringsten Beweis dafür, dass sich Russland die E-Mails der Demokratischen Partei verschafft hat, die belegen, dass die Vorwahlen manipuliert wurden, damit Hillary Clinton und nicht Bernie Sanders "gewonnen" hat (s. dazu auch ..hier ). Und niemand glaubt doch, die wenigen von Russen bezahlten Anzeigen, die über Facebook verbreitet wurden, könnten das Wahlergebnis tatsächlich beeinflusst haben. Trump wird sogar vorgeworfen, er unterstütze Russland, wenn er die Türkei auffordert, ihren geplanten Angriff auf die Kurden zu unterlassen. Was soll daran schlimm sein, wenn sich Trump nichtmilitärischer Mittel bedient, um die Türken von einer Ausweitung des Krieges (in Syrien) abzubringen? Wäre es besser, wenn die Demokraten das täten? Wäre es besser, wenn Trump die Türken zu einem Angriff (auf die Kurden) ermuntern würde, oder ist nicht jede Ermunterung zu einem Krieg schlimm – völlig unabhängig davon, wer sie ausspricht?

 

6. Auch wenn Trump die Wahl mit Hilfe der Russen gewonnen hätte und in ihren Diensten stünde, hätte das keine unmittelbaren Auswirkungen auf die NATO.

Stellen Sie sich vor, Boris Jelzin hätte in Diensten der USA die Sowjetunion aufgelöst. Wäre das besser gewesen, als die Einsicht, dass sich die Sowjetunion aus ganz anderen Gründen aufgelöst hat? Wenn Trump eine russische Marionette wäre, die nur Befehle der Russen ausführt, wären die Erhaltung des INF-Vertrages und der Beginn neuer Abrüstungsverhandlungen, die zu einer drastischen Reduzierung der Rüstungsausgaben und der Atomwaffenarsenale führen und verhindern könnten, dass wir alle in einem atomaren Inferno untergehen, nur deshalb abzulehnen, weil Trump dran beteiligt wäre?

 

7. Von Russland geht keine militärische Bedrohung für die Welt aus.

Dass sich Russland über die Auflösung der NATO freuen würde, bedeutet nicht, das wir uns nicht darüber freuen dürfen. Zahlreiche Personen und Instanzen, die unbestreitbar mithalfen, Trump ins Weiße Haus zu hieven, würden sich mit allen Mitteln einer Auflösung der NATO widersetzen, wenn andere sie anstreben würden. Wir sollten uns nicht an Meinungen anderer Leute orientieren, die ohnehin sehr unterschiedlich sind. Wir müssen uns wirklich eigene Gedanken machen und eigene Entscheidungen treffen. Auch Russland hat hochgerüstete Streitkräfte, die Russen haben auch schon Kriegsverbrechen begangen, und Russland ist einer der größten Waffenlieferanten der Welt. Auch das ist zu verurteilen, völlig unabhängig davon, dass es dabei um Russland und um eine eventuelle Komplizenschaft Trumps geht. Russland gibt aber aber nur einen winzigen Bruchteil des Geldes für Waffen aus, das die USA in die Rüstung stecken. Russland hat seine Militärausgaben jahrelang reduziert, während die USA sie ständig weiter erhöhen.

Die jährliche Zunahme der US-Rüstungsausgaben hat schon wiederholt den gesamten Militärhaushalt Russlands überstiegen. Die USA haben im vergangenen Jahr Bomben in neun Staaten abgeworfen, Russland nur in einem einzigen (und das auch nur auf Ersuchen der syrischen Regierung). Die USA haben Truppen in 175 Staaten stationiert, Russland nur in drei. Umfragen des Meinungsforschungsinstitutes Gallup und Pew rund um die Welt haben ergeben, dass nicht Russland, sondern die USA als größte Bedrohung für den Frieden auf der Welt angesehen werden [..hier]. Russland wollte der NATO und der EU beitreten, wurde aber abgewiesen, weil wichtige NATO-Mitglieder es vorziehen, Russland weiterhin als "Feind" zu betrachten [..hier ]. US-Militärs, die natürlich anonym bleiben wollen, geben zu, dass der neue Kalte Krieg nur vom Zaun gebrochen wurde, damit die Rüstungsindustrie auch weiterhin Profite machen kann [s. dazu auch ..hier ]. Diese Profite sind enorm, denn auf die NATO-Staaten entfallen drei Viertel aller Militärausgaben und Waffenkäufe auf der ganzen Welt.

 

8. Die Krim wurde nicht angegriffen.

Die New York Times hat berichtet: "US-Geheimdienstler glauben, Russland gehe es nach der Annexion der Krim vor allem darum, den Zusammenhalt zwischen den USA und Europa zu untergraben. Sein Hauptziel sei die Zerschlagung der NATO, die Moskau als Bedrohung ansehe." Wieder wird anonym behauptet, die russische Regierung verfolge ein Ziel, das sie nie hatte. Wir können ziemlich sicher sein, dass solche Behauptungen frei erfunden werden. Die Volksabstimmung, in der sich die Krim-Bewohner für die Rückkehr zu Russland entschieden haben, wird einfach unterschlagen, damit man frech behaupten kann, Russland habe sich die Krim gewaltsam angeeignet. Diese "gewaltsame Aneignung" ist allerdings nicht zu beweisen, denn es gab weder Tote noch Verletzte. Die Volksabstimmung wurde auch nicht wiederholt. Außerdem hat nach meiner Kenntnis bisher noch kein einziger "Annexionskritiker" die Wiederholung der Volksabstimmung gefordert.

Seither durchgeführte Umfragen haben immer wieder bestätigt, dass die Menschen auf der Krim sehr glücklich über ihre Entscheidung sind. Mir ist auch keine schriftliche oder mündliche Erklärung Russlands bekannt, in der den Bewohnern der Krim mit Gewalt oder Krieg gedroht worden wäre. Wenn insgeheim Druck ausgeübt worden wäre, ist nicht zu erklären, warum auf der Krim niemand zu finden ist, der angibt, bedroht worden zu sein. In den letzten vier Jahren gab es nur Berichte über einige Tataren, die sich diskriminiert fühlten. Wenn die Volksabstimmung unter Druck stattgefunden hätte, wäre ihr Ergebnis nicht in allen Befragungen bestätigt worden. Da die legitime ukrainische Regierung in Kiew durch einen von den USA inszenierten Staatsstreich gestürzt wurde, ist es doch verständlich, dass die Krim-Bewohner – wie die Flüchtlinge aus Honduras – nicht von einem Putsch-Regime regiert werden wollen, auch wenn das den Grafik entnommen aus Google USA nicht gefällt [s. ..hier ].

 

9. Die NATO ist keine positive Alternative zur Isolationspolitik.

Wer meint, die NATO sei für das Zusammenleben in der Welt notwendig, ignoriert viel friedlichere Möglichkeiten der Kooperation [..hier]. Eine gewaltlose, kooperative, Verträge einhaltende, Recht und Gesetz achtende Alternative zu imperialistischer Isolationspolitik ist nicht schwerer vorstellbar, als die Alternative, sich um Drogenabhängige, Kleinkriminelle und Obdachlose zu kümmern, statt sie zu bestrafen. Eine Alternative zu Bombenangriffen auf Menschen besteht darin, ihre Forderungen zu respektieren und friedliche Lösungen anzustreben. Nach den Standards der Mainstream-Medien der USA muss die Schweiz das isolationistischste Land der Welt sein, weil es sich nie an Bombenangriffen auf andere Länder beteiligt. Die Tatsache, dass die Schweiz das Recht achtet, auf globale Kooperation setzt und Gastgeber für internationale Konferenzen ist, scheint für die US-Medien nicht relevant zu sein.

 

10. Der 4. April muss dem Andenken an Martin Luther King II. vorbehalten bleiben und darf nicht zur Feier eines NATO-Jubiläums missbraucht werden.

Krieg ist die Hauptursache des globalen Flüchtlingsstroms, der Umweltzerstörung und der Klimakatastrophe, der Militarisierung der Polizei, des Abbaus der Bürgerrechte und ein Auslöser für Rassismus und Fanatismus. Wir brauchen eine globale Koalition, die sich für die Abschaffung der NATO, die Erhaltung des Friedens, den Schutz der Ressourcen und der Umwelt und die Entmilitarisierung unserer Kultur einsetzt. Am 4. April sollten wir deshalb nicht das siebzigjährige Bestehen der NATO feiern, sondern uns im Gedenken an Martin Luther King II, an seine am 4. April 1967 gehalten Rede gegen den Krieg und an seine Ermordung am 4. April 1968 erinnern [..hier: worldbeyondwar.org/notonato/].

Top 10 Reasons Not to Love NATO

The New York Times loves NATO, but should you?

Judging by comments in social media and the real world, millions of people in the United States have gone from having little or no opinion on NATO, or from opposing NATO as the

world’s biggest military force responsible for disastrous wars in places like Afghanistan (for Democrats) or Libya (for Republicans), to believing NATO to be a tremendous force for

good in the world. I believe this notion to be propped up by a series of misconceptions that stand in dire need

of correction.

(by David Swanson – January 15, 2019, in www.luftpost-kl.de/luftpost-archiv/LP_19/LP02019_150219.pdf)

 

1. NATO is not a war-legalizing body, quite the opposite. NATO, like the United Nations, is an international institution that has something or other to do with war, but transferring the UN’s claimed authority to legalize a war to NATO has no support whatsoever in reality. The crime of attacking another nation maintains an absolutely unaltered legal status whether or not NATO is involved. Yet NATO is used within the U.S. and by other NATO members as cover to wage wars under the pretense that they are somehow more legal or acceptable. This misconception is not the only way in which NATO works against the rule of law. Placing a primarily-U.S. war under the banner of NATO also helps to prevent Congressional oversight of that war. Placing nuclear weapons in “non-nuclear” nations, in violation of the Nonproliferation Treaty, is also excused with the claim that the nations are NATO members (so what?). And NATO, of course, assigns nations the responsibility to go to war if other nations go to war — a responsibility that requires them to be prepared for war, with all the damage such preparation does.

 

2. NATO is not a defensive institution. According to the New York Times, NATO has “deterred Soviet and Russian aggression for 70 years.” This is an article of faith, based on

the unsubstantiated belief that Soviet and Russian aggression toward NATO members has existed for 70 years and that NATO has deterred it rather than provoked it. In violation of a promise made, NATO has expanded eastward, right up to the border of Russia, and installed missiles there. Russia has not done the reverse. The Soviet Union has, of course, ended. NATO has waged aggressive wars far from the North Atlantic, bombing Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Serbia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Libya. NATO has added a partnership with Colombia, abandoning all pretense of its purpose being in the North Atlantic. No NATO member has been attacked or credibly threatened with attack, apart from smallscale non-state blowback from NATO’s wars of aggression.

 

3. Trump is not trying to destroy NATO. Donald Trump, as a candidate and as U.S. President, has wondered aloud and even promised all kinds of things and, in many cases, the

exact opposite as well. When it comes to actions, Trump has not taken any actions to limit or end or withdraw from NATO. He has demanded that NATO members buy more weapons, which is of course a horrible idea. Even in the realm of rhetoric, when European officials have discussed creating a European military, independent of the United States, Trump has replied by demanding that they instead support NATO.

 

4. If Trump were trying to destroy NATO, that would tell us nothing about NATO. Trump has claimed to want to destroy lots of things, good and bad. Should I support NAFTA or corporate media or the Cold War or the F35 or anything at all, simply because some negative comment about it escapes Trump’s mouth? Should I cheer for every abuse ever committed by the CIA or the FBI because they investigate Trump? Should I long for hostility between nuclear-armed governments because Democrats claim Trump is a Russian agent? When Trump defies Russia to expand NATO, or to withdraw from a disarmament treaty or from an agreement with Iran, or to ship weapons to Ukraine, or to try to block Russian energy deals in Europe, or to oppose Russian initiatives on banning cyberwar or weapons in space, should I cheer for such consistent defiance of Trump’s Russian

master, and do so simply because Russia is, so implausibly, his so-inept master? Or should I form my own opinion of things, including of NATO?

 

5. Trump is not working for, and was not elected by, Russia. According to the New York Times, “Russia’s meddling in American elections and its efforts to prevent former satellite states from joining the alliance have aimed to weaken what it views as an enemy next door, the American officials said.” But are anonymous “American officials” really needed to acquire Russia’s openly expressed opinion that NATO is a threatening military alliance that has moved weapons and troops to states on Russia’s border? And has anyone produced the slightest documentation of the Russian government’s aims in an activity it has never admitted to, namely “meddling in American elections,” — an activity the United States has of course openly admitted to in regard to Russian elections? We have yet to see any evidence that Russia stole or otherwise acquired any of the Democratic Party emails that documented that party’s rigging of its primary elections in favor of Clinton over Sanders, or even any claim that the tiny amount of weird Facebook ads purchased by Russians could possibly have influenced the outcome of anything. Supposedly Trump is

even serving Russia by demanding that Turkey not attack Kurds. But is using non-military means to discourage Turkish war-making necessarily the worst thing? Would it be if your

favorite party or politician did it? If Trump encouraged a Turkish war, would that also be a bad thing because Trump did it, or would it be a bad thing for substantive reasons?

 

6. If Trump were elected by and working for Russia, that would tell us nothing about NATO. Imagine if Boris Yeltsin were indebted to the United States and ended the Soviet

Union. Would that tell us whether ending the Soviet Union was a good thing, or whether the Soviet Union was obsolete for serious reasons? If Trump were a Russian pawn and

began reversing all of his policies on Russia to match that status, including restoring his support for the INF Treaty and engaging in major disarmament negotiations, and we ended up with a world of dramatically reduced military spending and nuclear armaments, with the possibility of all dying in a nuclear apocalypse significantly lowered, would that too simply be a bad thing because Trump?

 

7. Russia is not a military threat to the world. That Russia would cheer NATO’s demise tells us nothing about whether we should cheer too. Numerous individuals and entities who

indisputably helped to put Trump in the White House would dramatically oppose and others support NATO’s demise. We can’t go by their opinions either, since they don’t all agree. We really are obliged to think for ourselves. Russia is a heavily armed militarized nation that commits the crime of war not infrequently. Russia is a top weapons supplier to the world. All of that should be denounced for what it is, not because of who Russia is or who Trump is. But Russia spends a tiny fraction of what the United States does on militarism. Russia has been reducing its military spending each year, while the United States has been increasing its military spending. U.S. annual increases have sometimes exceeded Russia’s entire military budget. The United States has bombed nine nations in the past year, Russia one. The United States has troops in 175 nations, Russia in 3. Gallup and Pew find populations around the world viewing the United States, not Russia, as the

top threat to peace in the world. Russia has asked to join NATO and the EU and been rejected, NATO members placing more value on Russia as an enemy. Anonymous U.S. military officials describe the current cold war as driven by weapons profits. Those profits are massive, and NATO now accounts for about three-quarters of military spending and weapons dealing on the globe.

 

8. Crimea has not been seized. According to the New York Times, “American national security officials believe that Russia has largely focused on undermining solidarity between the United States and Europe after it annexed Crimea in 2014. Its goal was to upend NATO, which Moscow views as a threat.” Again we have an anonymous claim as to a goal of a government in committing an action that never occurred. We can be fairly certain such things are simply made up. The vote by the people of Crimea to re-join Russia is commonly called the Seizure of Crimea. This infamous seizure is hard to grasp. It involved a grand total of zero casualties. The vote itself has never been re-done. In fact, to my knowledge, not a single believer in the Seizure of Crimea has ever advocated for re-doing the vote. Coincidentally, polling has repeatedly found the people of Crimea to be happy with their vote. I’ve not seen any written or oral statement from Russia threatening war or violence in Crimea. If the threat was implicit, there remains the problem of being unable to find Crimeans who say they felt threatened. (Although I have seen reports of discrimination against Tartars during the past 4 years.) If the vote was influenced by the implicit threat, there remains the problem that polls consistently get the same result. Of course, a U.S.- backed coup had just occurred in Kiev, meaning that Crimea — just like a Honduran immigrant — was voting to secede from a coup government, by no means an action consistently frowned upon by the United States.

 

9. NATO is not an engaged alternative to isolationism. The notion that supporting NATO is a way to cooperate with the world ignores superior non-deadly ways to cooperate

with the world. A nonviolent, cooperative, treaty-joining, law-enforcing alternative to the imperialism-or-isolationism trap is no more difficult to think of or to act on than treating drug

addiction or crime or poverty as reason to help people rather than to punish them. The opposite of bombing people is not ignoring them. The opposite of bombing people is embracing them. By the standards of the U.S. communications corporations Switzerland must be the most isolationist land because it doesn’t join in bombing anyone. The fact that it supports the rule of law and global cooperation, and hosts gatherings of nations seeking to work together is simply not relevant.

 

10. April 4 belongs to Martin Luther King, Jr., not militarism. War is a leading contributor to the growing global refugee and climate crises, the basis for the militarization of the police, a top cause of the erosion of civil liberties, and a catalyst for racism and bigotry. A growing coalition is calling for the abolition of NATO, the promotion of peace, the redirection of resources to human and environmental needs, and the demilitarization of our cultures. Instead of celebrating NATO’s 70th anniversary, we’re celebrating peace on April 4, in commemoration of Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech against war on April 4, 1967, as well as his assassination on April 4, 1968.

Am 20. Mai 2019 machte das sowjetische Kleinflugzeug Tu-134 seinen letzten regulären Passagierflug in Russland. In den letzten Jahren war Alrosa die letzte Fluggesellschaft des Landes, die zwei Flugmaschinen von diesem Typ auf Passagierstrecken in Sibirien betrieb. Nach dem Flug wurde das Flugzeug an das neu gegründete Museum für Luftfahrtgeschichte in Nowosibirsk geliefert. Die Tu-134 hat sich vom Himmel jedoch nicht vollständig verabschiedet. Einige Flugmaschinen werden noch immer als Frachtflugzeuge und Business-Jets eingesetzt. Syrien, der Sudan und Nordkorea sind heute die einzigen Tu-134-Betreiber mit regelmäßigen Passagierflügen weltweit.

Mit 854 Flugmaschinen war die Tu-134 eines der meistproduzierten Flugzeuge in der Sowjetunion, die weitgehend in die Ostblockstaaten exportiert wurden. Die Tu-134 war das erste von der Internationalen Zivilluftfahrtorganisation (ICAO) zertifizierte sowjetische Verkehrsflugzeug, das den Einsatz auf internationalen Strecken erlaubte. Während einem der ersten Testflüge traf ein Kugelblitz die Cockpit-Windschutzscheibe. Er ging durch den gesamten Flugzeugrumpf und stieg am anderen Ende aus, ohne die Besatzung zu verletzen. Der Tu-134 wurde dank seiner Zuverlässigkeit und herausragenden technischen Eigenschaften geschätzt. Im Gegensatz zu vielen modernen Jets kann er bei starkem Seitenwind von 20 m/sek und Gegenwind von 30 m/sek ohne Risiko starten und landen.

Quote: WI’s new Supreme Court Judge, Brian Hagedorn, has called the National Association of Colored People “a disgrace to America.” Hagedorn, Walker's chief legal counsel, who as a judge took $3k from a hate group also accepted an all expense paid vacation to Mexico. Hagedorn is so extreme and corrupt that even the U.S. Chamber of Commerce (arguably the very heart and soul of the Republican party) refused to back him.

 

But what is perhaps most disturbing is that after 8 years of Republican leadership Wisconsin not only are the State’s children engaging in Nazi practices, but Wisconsin has been ranked in the top 10 states that people are FLEEING. And still, someone so corrupt and extreme as Hagedorn – who Trump personally called to congratulate – gets elected to a position at the State level, much less the judiciary. If Wisconsinites are voting on issues and not so much the candidates, they need to understand the true cost of their doing is so immensely high as to be punitive.

Finally, the Death of the American Justice system appears to have bipartisan support. Democrats wait and see strategy for whether or not Trump's conservative judges build a future of rulings adverse to the people before expelling them from the bench is intentionally misleading. The very fact that these conservative freaks are on the bench will force participants in legal proceedings to settle their matter outside of court or before it reaches a conservative abomination that will surely rule adverse to the People because such a sickening settlement is what they'd get anyway! Trump’s judicial appointments were done in bad faith and represent an illegal departure from restrains on government change. They all need to be impeached and replaced by judges who are qualified, fair, and nonbiased. It is up to the Democrats to do this, but they most certainly won’t.

The U.S. Congress needs attention. Special thanks to Dan Zieher:

 

Got this from a cousin: OUR PRESENT SITUATION!

 

Children of Congress members do not have to pay back their college student loans.

 

Staffers of Congress family members are also exempt from having to pay back student loans.

 

Members of Congress can retire at full pay after only one term.

 

Members of Congress have exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed, under which ordinary citizens must live.

For example, they are exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment.

 

And as the latest example, they have exempted themselves from Healthcare Reform, in all of its aspects.

 

We must not tolerate an elite class of such people, elected as public servants and then putting themselves above the law.

 

I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent, or whatever. The self-serving must stop.

 

Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon their states.It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.

 

If each person that receives this will forward it on to 20 people, in three days most people in The United States of America will have the message.

 

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:

 

"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the Citizens of the United States ..."

 

This is an idea that should be passed around, regardless of political party.

 

Congressional Reform Act of 2017

 

1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they're out of office. And, no more perks go with them.

 

2. Congress (past, present, & future) participates in Social Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.

 

3. Congress must purchase their own retirement plan, just as ALL Americans do.

 

4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

 

5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

 

6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people (i.e. NO MORE INSIDER TRADING!!!).

 

7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women. Congress made all these contracts by and for themselves.

 

Serving in Congress is an honor and privilege NOT a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators should serve their term(s), then go home and go back to work … not get all kinds of freebies.

 

Just hold your finger down then hit forward and send it to everyone you know. Let’s help get the country straightened out.

Trump has tweeted that America has “…a stupid system of courts,” which among other things, helps clarify his thinking behind his judicial appointments. It also suggests he is leaning toward an extra-judicial form of law enforcement.

Quote: WI’s new Supreme Court Judge, Brian Hagedorn, has called the National Association of Colored People “a disgrace to America.” Hagedorn, Walker's chief legal counsel, who as a judge took $3k from a hate group also accepted an all expense paid vacation to Mexico. Hagedorn is so extreme and corrupt that even the U.S. Chamber of Commerce (arguably the very heart and soul of the Republican party) refused to back him.

 

But what is perhaps most disturbing is that after 8 years of Republican leadership Wisconsin not only are the State’s children engaging in Nazi practices, but Wisconsin has been ranked in the top 10 states that people are FLEEING. And still, someone so corrupt and extreme as Hagedorn – who Trump personally called to congratulate – gets elected to a position at the State level, much less the judiciary. If Wisconsinites are voting on issues and not so much the candidates, they need to understand the true cost of their doing is so immensely high as to be punitive.

Finally, the Death of the American Justice system appears to have bipartisan support. Democrats wait and see strategy for whether or not Trump's conservative judges build a future of rulings adverse to the people before expelling them from the bench is intentionally misleading. The very fact that these conservative freaks are on the bench will force participants in legal proceedings to settle their matter outside of court or before it reaches a conservative abomination that will surely rule adverse to the People because such a sickening settlement is what they'd get anyway! Trump’s judicial appointments were done in bad faith and represent an illegal departure from restrains on government change. They all need to be impeached and replaced by judges who are qualified, fair, and nonbiased. It is up to the Democrats to do this, but they most certainly won’t.

The U.S. Congress needs attention. Special thanks to Dan Zieher:

 

Got this from a cousin: OUR PRESENT SITUATION!

 

Children of Congress members do not have to pay back their college student loans.

 

Staffers of Congress family members are also exempt from having to pay back student loans.

 

Members of Congress can retire at full pay after only one term.

 

Members of Congress have exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed, under which ordinary citizens must live.

For example, they are exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment.

 

And as the latest example, they have exempted themselves from Healthcare Reform, in all of its aspects.

 

We must not tolerate an elite class of such people, elected as public servants and then putting themselves above the law.

 

I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent, or whatever. The self-serving must stop.

 

Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon their states.It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.

 

If each person that receives this will forward it on to 20 people, in three days most people in The United States of America will have the message.

 

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:

 

"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the Citizens of the United States ..."
