losing the colonial loot....


Contrary to popular belief, the French have never been in favour of colonization, but a pressure group, self-proclaimed "Colonial Party", did manage to use its army to conquer economic opportunities. This pressure group, revived by presidents Valéry Giscard d’Estaing, François Hollande, Nicolas Sarkozy and Emmanuel Macron, laid the foundations for the current crisis in Mayotte and New Caledonia. If the policies they have imposed continue, the populations of these territories will be forced to wage war to regain their dignity, as was the case in Indochina and Algeria.

biden’s reckless and incompetent foreign policy is pushing us closer to annihilation...

Each of the last five presidents, both Democrats and Republicans, have brought us closer to the brink. We desperately need leaders with a knack for peace who can steer the nation, and the world, toward a more secure and less dangerous future.

there are plenty of gay men in the priesthood......

Pope Francis has apologised after he was quoted using a vulgar and derogatory term about gay men to reaffirm the Catholic Church's ban on gay priests.

The ruckus that ensued underscored how the church's official teaching about homosexuality often bumps up against the unacknowledged reality that there are plenty of gay men in the priesthood, and plenty of LGBTQ+ Catholics who want to be fully part of the life and sacraments of the church.

On Tuesday local time, Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni, issued a statement acknowledging the media storm that erupted about Francis's comments, which were delivered behind closed doors to Italian bishops on May 20.

 

propagandists clowns....

The organization co-founded by Hollywood A-lister George Clooney has declared open season on Russian journalists, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has said. The statement comes after it was revealed that the Clooney Foundation for Justice (CFJ) has been pushing for secret arrest warrants for Russian media figures. 

Actor and filmmaker George Clooney and his wife, human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, founded the CFJ in 2016 with the aim to “fight systemic injustice against vulnerable communities” around the world, according to its mission statement.

rats in the midst....

The recent public uproar about the comments made by ABC journalist Laura Tingle, where she stated that in her view Australia ‘Australia is a racist country’, demonstrates how, as a society, we are still incapable of having a nuanced, mature and respectful conversation about a wicked social problem that continues to be a blight on our collective conscience.

abduction and export of children from ukraine......

Human rights activists of the Foundation to Battle Injustice have obtained evidence confirming the involvement of a non-profit organization of the wife of Ukrainian President Zelensky in the abduction and export of underage children from Ukraine to Western countries. The Foundation was able to identify not only Ukrainian and European organizations involved in the kidnapping of children, but also the interstate routes used for the minors’ transportation. The Foundation to Battle Injustice found out the names of high-ranking Western officials and public figures associated with pedophile circles who are involved in organizing the criminal trafficking of children.

 

the rich are winning....

The billionaire once Warren Buffet famously said, “There’s class warfare, all right, but it’s my class, the rich class, that’s making war, and we’re winning.”  New analysis released by Oxfam this week for International Workers’ Day shows concretely that since 2020, the rich class, as Buffet calls them, are winning big.

Biden urges Hamas to accept Israel's new roadmap to end Gaza war
US President Joe Biden said Friday that Israel was offering a new roadmap towards a full ceasefire in Gaza that he urged Hamas to accept, saying it's "time for this war to end".

But swiftly afterwards Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu poured cold water on Biden's talk of peace, insisting that the army would continue fighting until it had "eliminated" Hamas's capacity to rule Gaza and pose a military threat.

did the US deep state block trump?

 

The first conviction of a sitting or former US president has made headlines across the globe.

Much of the world's media have been reflecting on what this means for Mr Trump's aspiration to return to the White House.

He was convicted 34 times of falsifying business records to disguise payments to an adult film star to buy her silence just before the 2016 election. He denied the charges and the affair.

housing crisis in the world and in sydney in particular.....

Inner West Council welcomes today’s release of the NSW Government’s housing targets and is getting on with a new Local Environmental Plan (LEP) that can deliver these dwellings.

The Government’s dwelling target of 7800 new homes in the Inner West over the next five years is achievable and can be delivered through Council’s local planning without the need for State Government rezonings to be imposed.

Council has already informed the Planning Minister Paul Scully that this Inner West LEP will be submitted to the Government by the end of the year.

Importantly, the Council has set a goal of 1000 new public housing dwellings to be included in the five-year target to ensure more homes for low- and middle-income families are available in the Inner West.

macron est un pauvre con....

The West has misinterpreted Russia's openness to dialogue on Ukraine as a sign of weakness and is now pushing the world to the edge of a disastrous all-out nuclear exchange, former US Marine Corps intelligence officer Scott Ritter told Sputnik.

US President Joe Biden has authorized Ukraine to hit targets inside Russia with US-made weapons, bringing the conflict to a new level. White House officials claim that Washington's new policy pertains only to what they call as "acts of self-defense" by the Ukrainian military that is continuing to retreat.

 

surrender is not a dirty word... it's better than death....

MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Ukraine lost up to 445 soldiers in the Lugansk People's Republic (LPR) and the Kharkov region in battles with Russia's Battlegroup Zapad over the past 24 hours, the Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD) said on Thursday.

"The Ukrainian armed forces lost up to 445 military personnel, two infantry fighting vehicles and three vehicles in battles with Battlegroup Zapad," the MoD said in a statement, adding that the group repelled three counterattacks in the LPR and the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR).

"swiss neutrality" should not allow zelensky's "peace conference" in switzerland.....

There is no solid definition of Swiss neutrality in the Swiss Federal Constitution. The neutrality initiative demands the Federal Council to actively pursue its peace function. Our country would thereby regain scope. The 2022 launched neutrality initiative has been achieved. On 11 April the initiative committee submitted 133,000 signatures for the initiative. This sets the course for a referendum on a definition of neutrality in the Swiss constitution.

NATO is a fascist organisation designed to destroy russia....

 

China’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning has agreed to attend next month’s Ukrainian peace conference in Switzerland with one proviso, that Russia be invited. Mao said that Beijing supports the “timely convening of an international peace conference that is recognized by both the Russian and Ukrainian sides.”

That sounds reasonable, after all, one would expect that peace negotiations would include the representatives of the warring parties. But that is not the case here. And while more than 90 countries have confirmed that they will attend the upcoming meetings, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has excluded the one nation whose presence might make a difference. Russia.
