The “Schulz-Effect”: Socialists lose first election under his leadership

Following the sudden ascendance of Martin Schulz as their new leader, Social Democrats in Germany have gone through a  delirium of optimism, hoping that the former EP President’s “popularity” and “leadership” would boost their chances to win the national elections in September. The media wrote about “Saint Martin”, “Martin the Saviour”, and of a “Schulz-Effect” – and opinion polls suggested that the Social Democrats were now ahead of Angela Merkel’s CDU. Only last week Schulz was elected the new president of the Socialist Party with 100% of delegates’ votes.

Well, the hype didn’t last long. Continue reading

Tidal change at UN Commission on “Women’s Rights”

Thanks to the outcome of last year’s presidential elections the US, which under President Obama was the most radical supporter of baby-slaughtering, is now taking a clear stance in favour of comprehensively protecting human rights, including the right to life, at the United Nations. This suddenly leaves the European Union rather isolated in its absurd attempt to get the deliberate murdering of unborn children recognized as a “women’s right”.

US: reckless judicial activism derails rule of law

There are many reasons to doubt the wisdom of President Trump’s decree restricting immigration from a number of predominantly Muslim countries – both in its initial version of end January and in its revised version. However, the decisions issued by Federal Judges in Hawaii and Maryland yesterday to block the revised decree from coming into force say more about those judges than about the decree. And they undermine the judiciary branch’s credibility  rather than the President’s.  Continue reading

Hungary determined not to comply with controversial ECtHR asylum judgment

The European Court of Human Rights continues undermining its own prestige and authority – this time with a controversial judgment condemning Hungary for having illegally “detained” two asylum seekers from Bangladesh in the transit zone next to the country’s border to neighbouring Serbia. The judgement is not yet final, as Hungary can still ask for the referral of the case to a Grand Chamber. The Hungarian government, which has criticised the Decision in sharp words, is expected to ask for such referral, but very possibly will not comply with the Decision anyway, even if it should be confirmed.

US Supreme Court refuses to hear “strategic” lawsuit on transgender toilet rights

With the legal recognition of same-sex “marriage” having been imposed across the United States by a narrow 5-4 majority of frivolously activist Supreme Court Justices, the LGBT-lobby is now trying its luck to achieve the same with regard to so-called “transgender” rights, the next step in their sinister agenda to dissolve peoples’ true reality in a sauce of newly-discovered “sexual identities”. Quite remarkably, the larmoyant reports (in radically-minded outlets such as the New York Times or the WaPo) about alleged “discriminations ” of self-defined “transgender” persons have multiplied by factor 100 in the year since the Obergefell Decision, which clearly indicates that a media campaign is being waged to prepare the next round of cultural revolutions.

However, the sexual-disorder-lobby’s hopes for a quick victory were quashed last week, when the Supreme Court decided to throw out a major “transgender” lawsuit, sending the case back to a lower federal court. Continue reading
