Kiev claims environmental damage in Crimea, extra sanctions against Russia must be imposed

"Ukraine's intention to investigate the construction of the bridge across the Kerch Strait, jointly with Bulgaria, Georgia, Romania and Turkey, as well as calls for new sanctions, are a continuation of anti-Russian hysteria," State Duma deputy Vladislav Ganzhara said in an interview.

The parliamentarian stressed that the construction work was carried out "at an accelerated pace," and all the efforts of the Ukrainian authorities aimed at disrupting the project were unsuccessful.

"This statement by the Prosecutor General of Ukraine shows that the Kiev regime is in real agony," he said. The deputy added that such statements hurt the image of Ukraine.

EU to toughen Brexit stance on 'gangster' Britain, MEPs vow

The EU will harden its position on Brexit trade talks after London said it would only pay its divorce bill if it got a deal, leading European parliamentarians said on Tuesday.

Guy Verhofstadt, the European Parliament's Brexit coordinator, said EU leaders meeting for a summit this week would now insist on the divorce terms being legally binding.

He condemned "unacceptable" comments by Britain's Brexit Minister David Davis in which Davis said a deal struck to seal separation arrangements and open talks on future relations was a "statement of intent" rather than "legally enforceable."

I spent a week reading the Guardian, so you didn’t have to

Formerly a socialist-leaning newspaper from provincial Manchester, today’s Guardian is the London-based mouthpiece of Britain’s Oxbridge-educated Liberal elite. After reading its website for a week, I’m wondering if this is the best all that expensive education can produce?

According to its fans, the Guardian is the world’s leading “progressive” news outlet. A place full of latter-day Sydney Schanbergs shining light where darkness prevails. They contend it stands apart from the corporate press, due to being controlled by the Scott Trust, and cite its open-access website as proof of its commitment to freedom of information. Successful campaigns on gay marriage and transgender rights are also used to illustrate how the paper often captures the zeitgeist.

Criticism after Danish school cancels Christmas to avoid ‘preaching’ to non-Christian children

Parents of local children, education officials and leading Danish politicians have criticized a primary school after it chose to cancel the traditional Christmas service, due to the presence of students of immigrant backgrounds.

"We took the decision because we have children who are not Protestant,” Marianne Vederso Schmidt, the head of Gribskolen in Graested, a town of fewer than 5,000 people in eastern Denmark, wrote in an intranet posting earlier this month.

Schmidt noted that the decision may have been overdue, as the education law forbids preaching “and it must be left to the individual families whether they want to privately attend a service.”

Gabbay to Netanyahu: 'Time for elections'

Zionist Union Chairman Avi Gabbay appealed directly to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in his party's meeting Monday, saying, "Dear prime minister, truth must be told: it's time for elections. It's time for you to make a decision the entire coalition realizes you should make."

"We've seen no actions taken for the benefit of the public in this session, but merely laws whose purpose is keeping together a loose coalition," Gabbay added.

"This is not the way a government should be managed, this is not the way a country should be managed and everyone knows it's only going to get worse. Compromises are carried out at our expense, so when it starts smelling like elections, simply call for elections and don't spring something new on the public every week," Gabbay criticized.

Billionaire Branson branded ‘a grasping capitalist’ for suing cash-strapped NHS

Anger is mounting in the UK against billionaire Richard Branson, who successfully sued the cash-starved National Health Service (NHS) for £328,000 of taxpayer money. Almost 70,000 people have signed a petition calling for him to return the funds.

The petition reads: “When the NHS is under severe financial pressure, it cannot afford to lose this money. Richard Branson, however, with an estimated personal wealth of over £3.5 billion, can manage perfectly comfortably without it." It urges Branson to apologize, return the money, and to make a personal commitment that his company, Virgin Care, will never again sue the NHS after losing out on a contract.

‘Urine on streets and riots’: Parisians threaten hunger strike over migrant camps

Parisians are up in arms over hundreds of migrants sleeping on their streets, queuing up in long lines, day and night, while waiting for their asylum requests to be processed, and some residents say they will start a hunger strike if the unkempt street camps are not removed.

Locals in the 10 and 19th districts, located near the famous Sacré-Cœur Basilica, are urging authorities to relocate a center that processes asylum requests in northern Paris, voicing their concern over the unsanitary and unhygienic conditions migrants are forced to live in.

“We had to install this fence to protect our communal parking from liters and liters of urine – this obviously cost money. And this was the only solution we came up with, but it is not sufficient,” Oscar, a concerned resident, told RT.

Trump 'Almost Rewarded' Israel for Terrorist Acts: Erdogan at OIC Summit

Relocating the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and recognizing the city as its capital was deemed a punishment for Palestinians Wednesday by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Ergodan at a Middle Eastern summit.

Erdogan's comments about President Donald Trump's announcement last week that the United States will move the embassy from Tel Aviv were made at the opening session of the 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation summit meeting in Istanbul, a hastily arranged meeting that was called after Trump's move.

Ergodan called Israel an "occupying and terrorist state" and asked "all just countries" to instead recognize Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital. He added that Muslim countries will never abandon Palestine's hopes for sovereignty and independence.

When comedy sides with tyranny

‘Triggered’ is such a weird insult, isn’t it? ‘Sorry, snowflake, did I trigger you? Did I make you feel an .
emotion in response to an event? Did my awful actions make you react with sadness or empathy, like you’re supposed to when you’re not made of pure evil? Oh, I do beg your pardon… Did my behaviour cause you to retaliate in a way that might suggest you’re somehow human? Cucked!!’

People who delight in causing offence are so tedious. Why not just play nice? Surely a world of happiness is better than constant misery? At this point I must declare a conflict of interest: I like being happy, which is why I promote happiness. I am in the pay of Big Joy. Bear this in mind whenever you read my columns. It’s actually why I wasn’t allowed to stand as a member of parliament: the ombudsman told me that my belief in making the world a nicer place was incompatible with the regular cash rewards from the arms trade.

African Union official: US cannot give Jerusalem to Israel

Senior Human Rights Expert at the African Union’s Department of Political Affairs, Salah Hammad, said yesterday that Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine and the United States cannot give it to Israel or any other party.

“The African Union’s position on the US decision is clear,” Hammad said in remarks to the Anadolu Agency on the sidelines of a solidarity campaign organised with the Palestinian cause in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

He pointed out that the US decision does not serve the Palestinian cause and does not lead to peace on the ground and stressed that the African Union’s position of solidarity with the Palestinian people is “clear and strong, and stems from the common African values ??that prevent a state from dominating another”.

SERBIAN REVEALS THE TRUTH ABOUT LIFE IN NORTH KOREA - he could no longer listen to Western lies!

Aleksa Vulovic, 25, a Belgian living in Australia, shot a documentary about North Korea. Regardless of all the truths and misconceptions about the world's most prominent country, it's been greatly spent.
Serbs react to injustice, that's it! Wherever they are. An example is Aleksa Vulovic (25), born Belgradian, who has long been living in Sydney, where he recently became very "popular" after the publication of a satirical documentary about North Korea.

The most secret world of the world, which, along with the truth, says the government and many misconceptions, recently visited, and Australians, who all look from the "American Corner", but to the rest of the world, wanted to "open their eyes" with their film.

Aleksin's documentary gives a slightly different picture of North Korea. His goal was to expose many prejudices and hypocritical convictions, which, as a rule, come from America, followed closely by Australia, and "drop it to the ground".

Alabama election: Doug Jones scores stunning win, but Moore won't concede

Doug Jones on Tuesday became the first Democrat in a generation to win a Senate seat in Alabama, beating Republican Roy Moore amid a firestorm of allegations that the GOP candidate had sexually abused teens.

Moore, however, refused to concede Tuesday night.

"When the vote is this close ... it's not over," Moore told supporters after Jones declared victory.

The results are nothing short of an embarrassment for President Donald Trump and a disaster for Republicans in Washington as the reliably red state of Alabama elected its first Democratic senator since the early 1990s.

The President Who Stole Christmas

President Trump stole our Christmas. And he did it standing in front of Christmas trees.

In what was an unusually polished speech (for him), President Trump announced the U.S. recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and has plans to relocate the U.S. embassy to there from Tel Aviv. We sat on our couch watching, our hearts pounding and our fists clenching, wondering whether it was ignorance, lunacy or plain hubris that drove him to make this announcement.

How can one man decide to take our historical capital away and give it to another country? How can he do that without acknowledging the hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who live in Jerusalem? Who live in the city of their birth without access to services, without basic human rights, who live unacknowledged? What happens to them?

The US Military Is the Biggest "Big Government" Entitlement Program on the Planet

The US economy is caught in a trap. That trap is the Department of Defense: an increasingly sticky wicket that relies on an annual, trillion-dollar redistribution of government-collected wealth. In fact, it's the biggest "big government" program on the planet, easily beating out China's People's Liberation Army in both size and cost. It is not only the "nation's largest employer," with 2.867 million people currently on the payroll, but it also provides government benefits to 2 million retirees and their family members. And it actively picks private sector winners by targeting billions of dollars to an elite group of profit-seeking contractors.

The top five overall recipients collectively pulled in $109.5 billion in FY2016, and their cohorts consistently dominate the government's list of top 100 contractors. They reap this yearly largesse through a Rube-Goldberg-like system of influence peddlers, revolving doors and wasteful taxpayer-funded boondoggles. Finally, it is all justified by a deadly feedback loop of perpetual warfare that is predicated on a predictable supply of blowback.

The Malady of Excessive Interventionism

***
The post-Cold War era has seen a continuation of a long global trend toward greater peace and stability, lower rates of conflict, and zero great power wars. More peace and diminishing threats have merely enhanced the remarkable security already enjoyed by the United States thanks to its geographic isolation, weak neighbors, unparalleled economic and military power, and its nuclear deterrent.

But America doesn’t act as if it is safe. Instead, we have a hyper-interventionist foreign policy. Over the last century, according to the Rand Corporation, “there was only one brief period – the four years immediately after U.S. withdrawal from Vietnam – during which the United States did not engage in any interventions abroad.” Indeed, “the number and scale of U.S. military interventions rose rapidly in the aftermath of the Cold War, just as [rates of global] conflict began to subside.”

According to data from the Congressional Research Service, the United States has engaged in more military interventions in the past 28 years than it had in the previous 190 years of its existence.*>>>

Certainly, the international community has come out with strong rebukes. The condemnations from America’s allies in the Muslim world have been stunning. The state of Jordan called it “nuts” and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) said it was a gift to “radicals and extremists.” The Saudis described it as an “unjustified and irresponsible.” The Iraqi government demanded that the US reverse its decision.
