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
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
Once again we have reason to note that the biggest danger for the Rule of Law emanates from judges – from activist judges.
In Florence, the Tribunale dei Minorenni has issued a decision according which the adoption of a child by a same-sex couple in England must automatically be recognized in Italy, where the law does not (yet) allow two sodomites to play “family”. According to the decision, which however has been appealed, Italy is obliged to recognize the English act of adoption, because the latter “is not in contradiction to the public order in Italy”.
This is patent nonsense, and there is no doubt that the judges are fully aware of this. Continue reading
The creeping progress of the Culture of Death has made an important leap forward in Germany, where the Bundesverwaltungsgericht (BVerwG, Federal Administrative Court) issued a decision that declares euthanasia to be legal in “extreme and exceptional cases”, without defining them. This opens the door to a new slippery slope, at the bottom of which one surely will discover that every case is somehow “extreme” and “exceptional”.
A few days ago we reported about a bus campaign in Spain that has been launched to recall the basic facts of life to a population that is getting increasingly confused by the regional government’s promotion of gender-theory. Incredibly, the chief of the Madrid Financial Guard, Jesús Caballero Klink, has now ordered the bus to be confiscated, and opened a criminal investigation for alleged “hate speech” against transsexuals.
The man is apparently not aware of how he is turning himself, together with the intolerant and noisy LGBT pressure-group that is pushing for the investigation, into a laughing stock for the world – which very possibly was one of the hidden objectives of the bus campaign. Continue reading
Fear of the consequences of uncontrolled mass immigration was one of the main reasons for Americans to elect Donald Trump as their new President, and for Brits to vote for Brexit.
But Paolo Mengozzi, an Advocate General at the European Court of Justice, knows better. In the opinion he delivered to the Court in the case of X and X v. Belgium — which could be reflected in the Court’s final ruling — he found that EU countries “must issue a visa” in cases where refusing one would place someone “at risk of torture or inhuman or degrading treatment.” Continue reading
