Wake, Forest, North Carolina canceled its annual Christmas parade over fears that a Confederate group's participation would spark dangerous protests. The town posted a statement on its website and official Facebook page saying that the parade's sponsor, local nonprofit Wake Forest Downtown, decided to nix the celebration "over concerns about public safety." Confederate symbology has long been controversial, with critics like The Southern Poverty Law Center and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People arguing that the icons encourage a nostalgic and reverent view of a secessionist pseudo-state propped up by race-based slavery. The statement said that the decision came about after Wake Forest law enforcement officials testified that they were concerned that over 200 "outside agitators" would show up to either support or oppose the inclusion of a local Sons of Confederate Veterans group in the parade. Republican Mayor Vivian Jones released a tearful video supporting the decision to cancel the parade, which has been held in the town for over 70 years. She cited public safety issues as the primary factor in the decision. "I love Wake Forest, but even more, I love the people of Wake Forest," Jones said. "Let me be perfectly clear. The decision to cancel this year's parade is not a reflection on our community or our wonderful people. Rather it's an unfortunate consequence of what happens when outside agitators make it known they will use local events like our parade to sow hate and spark chaos." According to the News & Observer , the Sons of Confederate Veterans group that participates in this particular Christmas parade is known as the 47th Regiment NC Troops Camp #166. Founded in 1896, the Sons of Confederate Veterans is an organization made up of the male descendants of Confederate veterans. The News & Observer reported that SCV groups in Wake County claim 3,000 members. The Southern Poverty Law Center said that the group promotes "neo-Confederate" thinking that stresses a "reactionary, revisionist predilection for symbols of the Confederate States of America." The camp's Facebook page is liked by 1,485 people and features photos of lectures on topics like "Confederates of color" and "the South's stand for Biblical authority." It also contains footage from the 2015 Wake Forester Christmas parade. The video shows a group of men dressed in grey uniforms carrying Confederate flags.

Illegal doings in a PAC?: ‘Dark money’ ties raise questions for GOP Sen. Ernst of

Náhled

More dark money dirty deeds being done by dopey dits. Scream1 This could be full on illegal and is obviously totally unethical. Jhikpghf She pretends to be so ethical, but then she won't talk about Trump's dirty deeds and that means she is complicit in all of the Trump unethical and criminal Russian pandering. Scream1 ‘Dark money’ ties raise questions for GOP Sen. Ernst of Iowa "WASHINGTON (AP) — An outside group founded by top political aides to Sen. Joni Ernst has worked closely with the Iowa Republican to raise money and boost her reelection prospects, a degree of overlap that potentially violates the law, documents obtained by The Associated Press show. Iowa Values, a political nonprofit that is supposed to be run independently, was co-founded in 2017 by Ernst’s longtime consultant, Jon Kohan. It shares a fundraiser, Claire Holloway Avella, with the Ernst campaign. And a condo owned by a former aide — who was recently hired to lead the group — was used as Iowa Values’ address at a time when he worked for her. Political nonprofits are often referred to as “dark money” groups because they can raise unlimited sums and are not required to reveal their donors. But they must take steps to keep their activities separate from the candidates they support. Additionally, while such tax-exempt groups can do political work, they can’t make it their primary purpose. The documents reviewed by the AP, including emails and a strategy memo, not only make clear that the group’s aim is securing an Ernst win in 2020, but they also show Ernst and her campaign worked in close concert with Iowa Values. Ernst is hardly the first politician to push campaign finance law boundaries. But the revelation could complicate her efforts to fend off a Democratic challenger in a closely watched race next year. “The truth is, our campaign is completely separate and independent from any outside organization,” Ernst senior adviser Brook Ramlet said in a statement. “Our campaign always has and always will act in full compliance with and in the spirit of the law. For the AP to suggest otherwise, is the definition of fake news.” Campaign finance law states that candidates and their “agents” can’t solicit, direct or spend contributions that exceed federal limits, even if the donations are made to an outside group. Those limits currently prevent donors from giving more than $2,800 to a candidate and $5,000 to a political action committee per election. In July, Holloway Avella requested “an investment of $50,000” from a donor after Ernst made an introduction. She made clear in an email, which was obtained by the AP, how much a contribution of that size could help. “As a follow up to our introduction by Senator Ernst, I am reaching out to you on behalf of Iowa Values,” she wrote. “As you may have seen, an outside group on the left ... recently launched a six-figure ad buy in media markets across the state attacking Senator Ernst on her vote to repeal Obamacare,” she continued. “The purpose of our group, Iowa Values, is to push back against these type of negative attacks.” Separately, a strategy memo states the group will use door-knocking, as well as TV, radio and digital advertising, to build a “firewall” that could be the difference “between winning and losing in 2020 for Senator Ernst.” The group is targeting about 120,000 Iowans who “lean Republican on the issues” but abandon the party at times over “the tone of the GOP.” Taken together, some legal experts say the documents offer proof that the effort violates the spirit of campaign finance and tax law, if not the letter of it. “It seems like pretty strong evidence” that the $50,000 request was for an “illegal donation” while it’s “clear that the goal of Iowa Values is to reelect Joni Ernst, which may violate its tax-exempt status,” said Brendan Fischer, an attorney with the nonpartisan Campaign Legal Center in Washington. He also said the documents pulled back the curtain on how dark money works. “This is a striking example of how secret campaign money operates,” Fischer said. “The big donors that bankroll a dark money group like Iowa Values remain hidden from the public, but the politician that benefits knows where the money is coming from.” Still, it’s far from certain that the Federal Election Commission, or the IRS, will find that t Číst dále >>> Přeložit do en

Joe Biden: All-white Democrat debate stage not reflective of party

The Pentagon’s 36 Military Bases in Africa. America’s Growing Military Presence

On the international scene condemnation of Gaddafi’s murder was a rare thing, and came from those such as Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez – with the Cuban leader noting that his killing was something “which violates the most elementary principles of Islamic rules” while Chavez denounced it as “another outrage”. NATO chiefs were satisfied, however, as it removed an obstacle to US control over Libya’s oil sources, a country which also has an extensive coastline along the Mediterranean Sea. One of the primary tasks of NATO is to safeguard access to raw materials and strategic localities. In June 2007 NATO’s then Secretary General, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, said to a gathering of members in Brussels that “NATO troops have to guard pipelines that transport oil and gas that is directed to the West”. Another of NATO’s functions is “to protect sea routes used by tankers and other ‘crucial infrastructure’ of the energy system”. A separate reason behind the US-led attack on Libya was to stem the tide of Arab Spring revolts, which first broke out in Tunisia during December 2010. Tunisia borders Libya to the west, with protests in the following weeks spreading to other nearby states like Egypt. Contrary to misrepresentations in Western media, the Arab Spring was looked upon with much concern by First World leaders. Číst dále >>> Přeložit do en

Medicare for All, Progressive-Campaign Killer

Medicare for All, Progressive-Campaign Killer Pundits have a ready explanation when one of their favorites loses or ends a campaign: The voters just didn't get to know the candidate the way media do. He or she was too wonky, or eager to please, or insular, or revealing, or uncertain for the masses. The electoral process made it impossible for him or her to connect with voters. The classic example is Hillary Clinton, who has reintroduced herself to the public umpteen times over the decades. A friend who knows her once told me I would like Clinton if only I got to meet her informally. I had a good laugh at that one.A similar lament greeted the news that Kamala Harris had dropped out of the Democratic primary. Last year, CNN ranked Harris first among the contenders. Now it's back to the Senate. The Washington Free Beacon compiled a short video of media types saddened by Harris's departure. A New York Times op-ed asked, "Did We Ever Know the Real Kamala Harris?" Writers for the Washington Post said that Harris failed because she lacked "a theory of the case" and wasn't able "to explain why she was running for president." Yes, it helps to have a reason for your candidacy beyond media reports that you check all the right boxes. But the argument that Harris flopped because of a failure to communicate lets her off easy.The Times piece didn't mention the policy initiative upon which Harris launched her campaign: Bernie Sanders's Medicare-for-All legislation, which would eliminate private and employer-based health insurance. Harris signed on as a cosponsor to the bill last April. It's haunted her ever since. Medicare for All might look like the sort of "big, structural change" that sets progressive hearts aflutter. For most voters it causes arrhythmia.The proposal is liberals' fool's gold. It appears valuable but is actually worthless. It gets the progressive politician coming and going: Not only do voters recoil at the notion of having their insurance canceled, but candidates look awkward and inauthentic when they begin to move away from the unpopular idea they mistakenly embraced. That's what happened to Harris earlier this year and is happening to Elizabeth Warren today.Harris moved into second place nationwide after her ambush of Joe Biden over busing during the first Democratic debate. But her position soon began to erode. Her wavering position on eliminating private insurance dissatisfied voters. She had raised her hand in support of the policy during the debate, but the next day she walked it back. Then she walked back the walk-back. Then, ahead of the second debate, she released an intermediary plan that allowed for certain forms of private insurance. She stumbled again when Biden called her to account for the cost of the bill. Tulsi Gabbard's pincer move on incarceration, using data first reported by the Free Beacon, made matters worse. By September, Harris had fallen to fifth place.This was around the time that Warren, bolstered by adoring press coverage and strong retail politics, began her ascent. For a moment in early October, she pulled slightly ahead of Biden in the RealClearPolitics average of national polls. Her rivals sensed an opportunity in her refusal to admit that middle-class taxes would have to increase to pay for Medicare for All. The attacks took their toll. Support for Warren fell. She then released an eye-popping payment scheme that failed to satisfy her critics. In early November, she released a "first term" plan that would "transition" the country to Medicare for All. In so doing, she conceded the unreality of her initial proposal. She came across as sophistical and conniving. Her descent continues.The national front-runner, Joe Biden, and the early-state leader, Pete Buttigieg, both reject Medicare for All in favor of a public option that would allow people to buy into Medicare. They reflect the polls. Democrats support a public option at higher levels than they do Medicare for All. A November Des Moines Register poll of likely Democratic caucus-goers found that only 36 percent supported a Medicare-for-All plan that would cancel private health insurance. More than half supported some other alternative to a one-size-fits-all universal government program. The November Quinnipiac survey found that 71 percent of Democrats and Democratic leaners were for a Medicare buy-in.

A November Des Moines Register poll of likely Democratic caucus-goers found that only 36 percent supported a Medicare-for-All plan that would cancel private health insurance. More than half supported some other alternative to a one-size-fits-all universal government program. The November Quinnipiac survey found that 71 percent of Democrats and Democratic leaners were for a Medicare buy-in. That is twelve points higher than the support for Medicare for All.One reason for Bernie Sanders's polling stability is that Democrats remain open to the idea of Medicare for All. They just want a candidate to be direct about the costs Číst dále >>> Přeložit do en

PODZIMNÍ A ZIMNÍ DONBAS 15. – MEZINÁRODNÍ DEN INVALIDŮ V DOMĚ KULTURY CHEMIKŮ

Jaromír Vašek 06.12.2019, 11:58

V Mezinárodní den invalidů 3.12.2019 jsem zhlédl překrásnou akci. V pobočce Centra kultury a lidové tvořivosti-v Domě kultury chemiků v Alčevsku (LLR)-se konala pro děti z Alčevského centra rehabilitace dětí-invalidů oslava jejich svátku. V LLR je 64 tisíc invalidů, z toho 3 tisíce dětí do 18 let. Děti zpívaly, tancovaly, hovořily, přednášely básně, hrály divadlo

Pokračuji v návštěvách škol v Alčevsku (LLR), kam chodí členové studia Eťud-Tais. Po návštěvě 4.školy-gymnázia (Alina, Petr, Lejla) jsem 2.12.2019 navštívil 3.školu, kam chodí do 7.třídy Polina Labutina. V této škole jsem ještě nebyl.

Česká politická scéna jako na dlani

Evropa má zaděláno na hodně velký, ale skutečně velký průšvih. Musíme okamžitě obnovit kontroly na hranicích. Toto nám řekl poslanec z výboru pro obranu

07.12.2019, 14:52

ROZHOVOR „Schengen nefunguje a Evropou se všemi směry pohybují teroristé s vojenským výcvikem, a to za ohromného potlesku naivních sluníčkářů a neziskových organizací. Je třeba okamžitě obnovit hraniční kontroly na našich vlastních hranicích, dokud je ještě čas. Evropa má totiž zaděláno na hodně velký, ale skutečně velký průšvih,“ konstatuje místopředseda sněmovního výboru pro obranu Radovan Vích (SPD). Jediná instituce, která může dle něj posoudit otázku střetu zájmů premiéra, je český soud. Osobně se též distancuje od jakékoliv podpory rehabilitace generála Andreje Vlasova a jeho jednotek, které „historie považuje za zrádce a kolaboranty“.

„Tohle si přečtěte! Premiér ho nemůže ani cejtit, bude zase vyvádět a bude opět na*ranej..." Kalousek se před pár dny vyjádřil na adresu Babiše a my získali nečekané svědectví

07.12.2019, 18:04

Vše začalo zhruba před čtyřmi lety, kdy se oba výrazní politici vsadili o astronomických deset milionů korun. Někdejšího ministra financí Kalouska řádně rozhněvalo, když o něm Andrej Babiš řekl, že byl vyšetřován kvůli svému rozhodnutí povolit online hazard. Kalousek proto vyzval Babiše, aby přijal sázku, že nikdy vyšetřován nebyl. „Sázku přijímám. Ať mi pošle deset milionů na účet,“ reagoval Babiš. Jenomže prohrál.

Rektor Zima na akci Milana Syručka odhalil, čeho se politici bojí a nechtějí to udělat. Jde o vysoké školy

07.12.2019, 19:52

REPORTÁŽ Všem vysokým školám stejné peníze? Politici dnes nechtějí rozhodnout, koho podpořit. Děláte špičkový výzkum, nebo jste „zašiti“ v regionální univerzitě bagatelního významu? Podmínky dotací máte stejné! Jen nevyčuhovat z davu! To je podle rektora Univerzity Karlovy Tomáše Zimy naše veliká bolest. Předsedkyně Akademie věd prof. Eva Zažímalová vzpomněla na časy, kdy sice nebyly potřebné suroviny, ale byly dělnické „kádry“, které vědě nerozuměly ani za mák a opičily se tak po Sovětském svazu. Setkání československých vědců s těmi ze Západu bylo groteskou, kdy za číšníky byli evidentně estébáci. To zaznělo na akci, kterou uspořádal novinářský nestor Milan Syruček v Praze za podpory Nadace železné opony.

Zeman vede džihád proti ČT? Petr Žantovský je ohromen nad argumentací zaměstnance ČT. I nad slovy dalšího novináře, že žijeme ve válce

07.12.2019, 05:15

TÝDEN V MÉDIÍCH Obrovskou porci demagogie vytasil komentátor Vladimír Mertlík při obhajobě akcí Milionu chvilek, které jsou v podstatě protestem proti volebnímu demokratickému uspořádání společnosti. Přišel dokonce s analogií, že ani svět nenechal dovládnout většinově zvolenou administrativu Třetí říše, aby ji v dalších volbách mohl německý lid vystavit účet. Pro Petra Žantovského však tento článek není jediným kandidátem na hloupost týdne. Zdatnou konkurencí mu je text Martina Fendrycha oslavující starostu z Řeporyjí. Třešničkou na dortu je pak tvrzení, že se Česká televize musí bránit džihádu, který proti ní vede prezident Miloš Zeman.

Další hák šéfovi ODS, že to mlasklo až v Brně: Vystavil si Babišův portrét, dopsal k němu sedm slov a rozjel nevídaný kolotoč. Jenže zase proti sobě

07.12.2019, 11:45

Předsedovi ODS nelze upřít snahu a píli, s jakou spravuje osobní profil na sociální síti Facebook. Právě tam, kde má přes 40 tisíc fanoušků, pravidelně odpovídá čtenářům, přidává fotografie, glosy a videa. Jedním z obrazových materiálů byl také atak na premiéra Babiše, který se týkal dotací. Ačkoli si fotografie vysloužila přes tisícovku zdvižených palců, v komentářích to naopak občanští demokraté schytali prakticky od každého.

Chvála české rozvážnosti

Podle známého kontroverzního výroku Ústavního soudu z dubna tohoto roku je diskriminace (v tomto případě Rusů) v pořádku, pokud ní nevedou hanebné pohnutky. Důvody, které k tomu Ústavní soud vedly jsou ve stručnosti tyto.

Pavel Novotný: Když si Žid přeje smrt Čechů, je to zcela v pořádku

Valentin Dobrotivý 06.12.2019, 00:10

Hned na začátku se přiznám, že osobu Pavla Novotného jsem zaznamenal až minulý měsíc, v souvislosti s jeho plánem postavit v pražských Řeporyjích pomník padlým vlasovcům. Toto gesto jsem ihned pochopil jako typicky populistickou, provokativní snahu o získání tolik důležitého celorepublikového politického PR a laciné reklamy na svojí osobu. Což se očekávaně splnilo na více než 100%. Za jiných okolností by to byla bezvýznamná akce vůdce jedné z periferií hlavního města. Díky přehnané (ale účelově plánované) medializaci ovšem překročila hranice této země a dostala se až do hlavního vysílacího času ruské televize.

Je evropská komise neomylné božstvo?

Lubomír Man 04.12.2019, 00:10

Jistě je, vždyť je to komise složená z lidí tak nesmírně moudrých a nadaných rozumem tak bezchybným a neselhávajícím, že jakýkoli omyl či chybný úsudek kteréhokoli z jeho 28 členů je naprosto vyloučen. A je vynikající okolností, že míru této nadlidské duševní dokonalosti celé komise jako celku i každého z jejích členů zvlášť, jsme si mohli my Češi v minulosti (a můžeme tak činit i v přítomnosti), tak říkajíc osahat na jednom z členů této komise, jímž je naše krajanka a komisařka Věra Jourová.

Kam jsme (ne)došli po třiceti letech

Radomír Dolanský 03.12.2019, 00:10

Chtěli jsme na Západ. To se povedlo. Tehdejší západní svobodu a demokracii socialistický tábor infikoval a dnes se potácíme v něčem, co má něco málo ze Západu, něco víc ze socialismu a stále více z diktatury orwellovského typu. Po roce 89 ́ jsme byli nadšení, jak úžasně nás Západ vítá, objímá s ochotou všemožně pomoci. Dnes, po letech, je jasné, že šlo převážně o kšeft a strategické politicko-vojenské pozice. Navezli do východního bloku miliardy tun západní nadvýroby – převraty v soc. dem. bloku pomohly Západu oddálit agónii nekryté měny a zadluženosti. Následující kolaps se už bude týkat i nás.

Město v Bosně: migranti jsou všude

Autor neuveden 02.12.2019, 00:10

Po zásahu tehdejšího rakouského ministra zahraničí Sebastiana Kurze v roce 2017 byla balkánská trasa z velké části uzavřena, takže se migranti začali hromadit na vnější hranici Chorvatska. Zhruba 90% všech migrantů je natěsnáno v jednom městě v Bosně a Hercegovině, které má 61 000 obyvatel, uvedl starosta Šuhret Fazlić .
