Boris has made a strategic error in reinstating the Brexit blockers

Why, for the fourth time in almost as many years, is the country being invited to go out and vote again? Because, to put it bluntly, the MPs we elected back in 2017 refuse to enact the result of the EU referendum.

A customs union amendment is a wrecking amendment

From conversations I have had in the last couple of hours, I strongly suspect that the bulk of those elected as Tories who voted for a customs union in the indicative votes would not back a customs union amendment to the WAB because they understand that it would wreck the bill. If an amendment does pass, it will do so largely on the backs of those who want a second referendum. They will hope that the addition of a customs union will lead to the deal failing; reviving the prospects of a second referendum.

Turkish Proxies Appear to Be Using White Phosphorus in Syria

Turkish-backed forces appear to be using munitions loaded with white phosphorus—a chemical that can maim and kill when it comes in contact with human flesh—in their violent campaign against Kurdish fighters in northern Syria, Foreign Policy has learned.

If Turkish proxies are intentionally using white phosphorous-loaded munitions to target civilians, that could constitute a war crime. After publication of this article, U.N.-backed investigators said they were looking into the accusations.

Attentat in Berlin: Nichts ist geklärt

(25.12.2016)

Ohne juristischen Prozess, ohne Gerichtsverhandlung, schafft die Regierung, schafft der sich selbst als Rechtsgrundlage und Rechtfertigung für sich selbst interpretierende Staat nach einem weiteren Massenmord weitere Fakten, deren Rücknahme durch ihn selbst er als äußerst unwahrscheinlich einschätzen kann. Dies macht den Staat selbst zum Gefährder.

Nur zur Erinnerung: ohne Gerichtsurteil gibt es keinen Schuldigen. Sich daran zu erinnern, fällt gerade den Konservativen zunehmend schwerer. Es fällt überhaupt allen schwer sich an irgendetwas zu erinnern und sei es auch nur vor ein paar Tage, ja ein paar Stunden her.

(…)

Was hat das Militär bei einer Mordermittlung zu suchen? Warum steht das als Waffe eingesetzte Fahrzeug in der Julius-Leber-Kaserne? Und wer glaubt, dass der angebliche Attentäter Anis Amri seine Geldbörse mit Ausweis und Duldungspapieren und dann noch das Handy im Fahrzeug liegen lässt, mit dem er gerade ein Attentat begangen hat? Und das all diese deutlichen Beweise, genauso wie die Fingerabdrücke, erst auf dem Gelände der Bundeswehr gefunden werden, aber der eine Fund (Geldbörse, Ausweis, Papiere) zwei Tage später (Tagesspiegel.de) und der andere Fund (das Handy, Spiegel.de) und die Fingerabdrücke (rp-online.de) vier Tage später bekannt gegeben wird?

Was Sie, liebe Leser und Leserinnen, nicht zuletzt interessieren sollte: Wem können Sie tatsächlich, erwiesenermaßen vertrauen?

Diesem Staat?

02.10.2019 - 18:12 [ Heise.de ]

Stand Amri bereits kurz nach dem Anschlag als Täter fest?

Sollte sich das bestätigen, wäre nicht nur eine Frage aufgeworfen, sondern eine Vielzahl: Wie schnell sind die Ermittler tatsächlich auf Amri gekommen? Warum vertritt nahezu der gesamte Sicherheitsapparat seit nun fast drei Jahren eine falsche Version? Was hat es mit den persönlichen Dingen Amris auf sich – Handys, Papiere, Portemonnaie -, die erst am 20. Dezember im und am LKW aufgefunden worden sein sollen und als Beleg gelten, dass er der Täter war?

Tony Blair lobbied EU for Brexit delay as he led new referendum calls

Tony Blair personally urged the EU’s chief negotiator to delay Brexit beyond March 29 as Theresa May was insisting to European leaders that she wanted the UK to leave on time, The Telegraph can disclose.

The former prime minister held a private meeting with Michel Barnier in February in which he declared that an extension of the Article 50 notice period would „provide the time required“ for „clarifying“ the type of relationship Britain wanted with the EU.

Was allein Verhandlungen über ein neues internationales Iran-Abkommen bedeuten würden

(25.04.2018)

Nehmen wir nun also an, Rohani sagt Ja, auf Drängen seines guten Freundes im Kreml, zum Beispiel. Und nehmen wir mal an, es würden tatsächlich nochmal Verhandlungen mit allen Parteien begonnen.

Dann passiert Folgendes:

– die Verhandlungen ziehen sich genauso endlos hin wie der bald siebzehnjährige weltweite Terrorkrieg
– die gesamte Kriegslobby, überall, fährt weiter gewaltige Profite ein
– alle Staats- und Regierungschefs, mit Ausnahme natürlich von Rohani, stärken ihre innenpolitische Position und können vielleicht sogar ihre Wiederwahl sichern (Trump, Merkel, May, Macron, Trump, bei Xi gibt es sowieso keine mehr)
– im Iran bekommen die dortige Kriegslobby und die klerikal-autoritären Kräfte, die ihren Kumpanen in Tel Aviv und Washington regelmäßig zu Hilfe kamen und sich nichts sehnlicher wünschen als ihren 11. September, wieder die Initiative und letztlich die Oberhand
– Rohani wird in absehbarer Zeit entweder gestürzt oder abgewählt
– das Raketenprogramm der iranischen Militärs und Kriegslobbyisten wird forciert
– die Monarchie Saudi Arabien, wie alle anderen mit dem Iran konkurrierenden Monarchien in der Region, reden über Atomwaffen, eigene Atomwaffen und besorgen sich diese (wenn sie diese nicht schon längst haben)
– dass der Oberste Rechtsgelehrte des Iran, Ajatollah Ali Chamenei, Staatschef und Oberkommandierer der Militärs, der seit 1989 amtiert, seine in den 90er Jahren erlassene Fatwa gegen die Lagerung, Herstellung und Anwendung von Atomwaffen selbst wieder aufhebt ist äußerst unwahrscheinlich. Wen allerdings der Expertenrat im Falle eines Ablebens von Chamenei in einer nun abermals permanenten Bedrohungslage als Nachfolger von Chamenei wählen würde, und was der dann wieder beschließt, wäre völlig offen.

Right-Wing Settlers behind Ads Calling on Arabs to Boycott Vote

During the campaign before the last general elections in April, billboards went up throughout Arab communities and towns in the Galilee urging voters to boycott the vote. Many residents assumed the ads, which did not identify their sponsors, were an initiative of political forces in the Arab community such the Islamic Movement’s Northern Branch, which traditionally boycotts Israel’s national elections.

However, a Channel 12 news inquiry broadcast on Friday, September 6, revealed that the campaign was very likely commissioned and financed by right-wing Jewish settlers who hoped to significantly decrease Arab turnout at the polls.

It’s the type that places the votes of a few hundred MPs above the 17.4million members of the public who voted for the UK to leave the EU. It’s the type of democracy that demands we bend the knee to our representatives in parliament, who are expected to think and act on our behalf.
