Poland defends Europe’s borders, the EU cuts its funds

    Europe is taking advantage of the crisis at its borders and intends to starve Warsaw. Belarus is deliberately pushing immigrants to Eastern European borders, especially Poland’s, in retaliation against EU sanctions. Therefore, Poland is serving the interests of all members of the Union. Just two days ago, the European Parliament’s major parties sent the Commission a request to suspend the Recovery Plan, essential for the reconstruction of the Polish economy post Covid. The same reason is always given, the reform of the judiciary which, according to the European parties, "violates the rule of law". Hungary is next on the list.

    Wave of immigrants from Belarus, exposes EU hypocrisy

    The wave of emigrants from Belarus pressing at Poland's borders is rightly described by EU leaders as a destabilising move. Lukashenko uses the "weapon of mass migration" to obtain the withdrawal of sanctions. But the same attitude has never been taken when Italy was in the same predicament.

    Socialism of the privileged

    How did it happen that the left has become, in the last twenty years, the 'party' of the privileged, the elite, the establishment? It is an undeniable and international phenomenon. And it is much more aggressive than its predecessors in repressing dissent. It now also includes the right-wing, in an "Inclusive" Social Democracy, or ISD.

    Yes, England comes in first. In political correct-speak

    The open letter written by the English coach Southgate on the eve of the European Football Championship is a hymn to the ideology of inclusiveness and egalitarianism, the true idols of the contemporary West. Southgate, like many others, is an unwitting instrument of the euthanasia-like  process pursuing death at the request of his own Christian identity.

    Northern Ireland, the legacy of Bobby Sands

    Bobby Sands, a young Irish Catholic that joined the IRA in 1972, died as a hunger-striker just 40 years ago protesting against Britains rule in Northern Ireland. Also pope John Paul II tried unsuccessfully to intervene to end the hunger strike.


    Orban leaves the EPP. Time for clarity

    The Hungarian Fidesz party has quit the European People's Party group. The EPP, together with the Socialists and Liberals, had already been voting against Hungary over the last two years. The EPP is systematically betraying its Christian values. Now Orban's withdrawl makes things clearer and just may be the precursor to the birth of a new, more coherent group.

    Beijing clears the way for global vaccine passport

    China is way ahead of the game:  it is the first major emerging power to introduce a vaccine passport. Though not the first ever of its kind, China is advocating a system of standard recognition around the world. What is the flip side? It’s yet another means of totalitarian control.

    "Entering an era of pandemics"? Not so fast, phobocracy!

    The European Commission President, Ursula von der Leyen, says that "we are entering an era of pandemics." Even after Covid is over, nevertheless "the risk is still there" of further global disease. Indeed, pandemics - like the Spanish and Asian flus - have always dwelt among us. But they have never disrupted human existence as they do now. “Phobocracy” is just the latest development in governance: whoever is capable of terrorising the masses is now in charge.

    "I’m a smuggler, just like Moses." Stories of human traffickers

    While hundreds of illegal immigrants have been arriving on Italian shores, the U.N. is pointing out the seriousness of illegal human trafficking, a business that earns transnational criminal organisations upwards of around $10 billion annually. Trafficking is not just tied to Mediterranean crossings, but to complex networks with dozens of bases set up along land routes spanning thousands of kilometres and with activities ranging from document forgery to marketing operations. What's more, human traffickers see themselves as do-gooders: “I make dreams come true,” says Kabir, a Pakistani trafficker. And a Siberian trafficker named Alexsandr says, "Moses was the first smuggler in history, I am just like him". 


    "Free until I say so." 'Socialcracy' is a problem

    If a private corporate and commercial entity, lacking in democratic legitimacy and public authority, meddles forcefully in the exercise of rights guaranteed by national and international legal systems, it means that serious questions should be posed regarding the nature of the Internet and rules needed to prevent further showdowns by Big Tech. With Trump, whose accounts were recently blocked by Facebook and Twitter, a debate is now underway concerning the role of social media networks. Are they censors or publicists? Watchdogs or publishers? Even a publicly appointed authority would be risky, though the phenomenon must be tackled with moral equilibrium.

    Covid psychosis is the consequence of an ageing western world

    There is a pandemic psychosis that is no longer justified by the public health emergency now behind us.  Nonetheless, fears about the future and returning to normal life are now characteristics of gerontocratic and infertile societies that have practically lost their vital thrust. COVID induced panic has become both a symptom and a driver of those societies’ decadence.

    Catholics for Trump: Democrats turn Republican

    Six out of ten Christian voters today would vote for Trump. Polls from the Pew Research Center also show that the current president has managed to move the Catholic electorate from the Dem Party to the GOP. Despite the protests and Covid, the numbers remain similar to 2016, not only because he “defends our ideas” but because he “has courage, does what he promises”.
