US, EU trying to bypass UN on Venezuela: Moscow

While the United States has openly backed Guaido, the European Union did not issue a joint statement following suit because the motion was vetoed by Italy, according to a diplomatic source.

The United States is asking Britain, France, Germany and other European allies to take back over 800 ISIS fighters that we captured in Syria and put them on trial. The Caliphate is ready to fall. The alternative is not a good one in that we will be forced to release them……..

What Europe thinks of Brexit: Why the EU still doesn’t understand the 2016 referendum result

What did Britons vote for in 2016? Did they vote to leave the EU? Or did they vote to ask for permission to leave the EU? Obviously the former. If you have the right to negotiate for your sovereignty, you’re sovereign. If you can’t walk away from the negotiating table, you’re not. When the two parties sat down at the table, Britain had already exited the EU. This is an appropriate place to negotiate the best relations possible with allies and partners. But at the end of the day, all sovereignty is no-deal sovereignty. Britain has it. It is now debating whether to surrender it.

French President Macron visits the hangman of Cairo

In Cairo, Macron made clear France would continue arming Sisi to the teeth against the Egyptian workers. French sales of Rafale fighters and other military hardware to Sisi are to continue despite Macron’s mealymouthed comments on human rights. “I would differentiate between the two subjects,” he said. “They are not linked for us and they never were.”

‘The gilets jaunes are unstoppable’: Christophe Guilluy on the cultural divide driving the yellow vests.

„One illustration of this cultural divide is that most modern, progressive social movements and protests are quickly endorsed by celebrities, actors, the media and the intellectuals. But none of them approve of the gilets jaunes. Their emergence has caused a kind of psychological shock to the cultural establishment. It is exactly the same shock that the British elites experienced with the Brexit vote and that they are still experiencing now, three years later.“

Drouet et le nouvel âge citoyen des révolutions

« Fascination ! » « Fascination !» ont-ils glapi en cadence. J’ai amélioré mes performances au jeu du chiffon rouge. Les chiens de garde hurlent exactement comme le font les chiens de compagnie dans une rue pavillonnaire : juste parce que le chien d’à côté le fait déjà. Un fait n’est rien pour un journaliste par rapport à l’affirmation d’un collègue. Recopier et répéter est moins dangereux que de dire quelque chose en étant seul à le faire. Ce n’est pas qu’ils mentent, c’est qu’ils sont obligés d’être moutonniers pour ne prendre aucun risque.
