EU Parliament to censor “hate speech” in the chamber

182905In the final plenary session of 2016, the European Parliament furtively amended its Rules of Procedure to give its President sweeping powers to censor so-called “hate speech” by Members in the Chamber.

In contempt of democracy, new law on sodo-“partnerships” is forced upon Slovenia

gaystapoSame-sex civil partnerships (and not, as Politico and other media falsely report, “marriages”) between sodomites have become legal in Slovenia, with a law coming into effect today that gives the mock “marriages” of sodomites largely the same status as to the future-ensuring genuine marriages, which are those between one man and one woman.

In 1997, a Danish artist burned a copy of the Bible on a news show by a state broadcaster but was not charged.

Some religions enjoy the protections of the law, others not.

What Donald Trump still needs to learn about the EU…

trump-eu-750x500In his riotous, and therefore quite amusing, press conference last week, US President Trump, among other things, sketched out his intended policy on trade:

Let me list to you some of the things that we’ve done in just a short period of time. I just got here. And I got here with no cabinet. Again, each of these actions is a promise I made to the American people.

I’ll go over just some of them and we have a lot happening next week and in the weeks — in the weeks coming. We’ve withdrawn from the job-killing disaster known as Trans Pacific Partnership. We’re going to make trade deals but we’re going to have one on one deals, bilateral. We’re going to have one on one deals.

So it is not that he wants to have no trade agreements at all, it is that he thinks he will cut better deals when negotiating bilateral rather than regional agreements. Continue reading
