Secret recordings reappear on pro-government Hungarian site

(9.7.2018) On Monday morning, following reports in independent Hungarian media outlets that the recordings had disappeared, Magyar Idők issued an alert — including a red banner across the top of its homepage — and a statement announcing that it never took down any articles.

Warum die Landesregierung Bayern keine Verfassungsklage gegen die Bundesregierung einreicht

(28.1.2016) Die Maulhelden der Landesregierung Bayern und der „Christlich-Sozialen Union“ haben immer noch keine Verfassungsklage gegen die Bundesregierung eingereicht. Ihr Bittbrief an die Bundesregierung ohne Frist und juristische Wirkung ist eine beschämende, lächerliche Farce. Warum beschädigt sich die Landesregierung Bayern und die C.S.U., ein halbes Jahr nach Beginn von Operation Asyl, immer noch dermaßen selbst und hilft ihrer vermeintlichen Konkurrenz, den Surrealisten der „Alternative für Deutschland“ bald über die 15-Prozent-Marke?
