As we reported last week, Sweden may or may not be preparing for civil conflict – as Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said that the government would do whatever it takes – including deploying the military – to end the wave of gang violence coming primarily from young migrants in the country’s “no-go” zones.

Russia, US to conduct joint space experiments

US researchers have announced plans to take part in joint experiments on simulating flights to outer space as part of the Scientific International Research in Unique Terrestrial Station (SIRIUS) program. US scientists suggested adding two additional research projects to the program with participation of a joint six-member Russian-US crew, Director of the Institute of Medical and Biological Problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences Oleg Orlov told Izvestia. “Our American colleagues have expressed interest in expanding the five-year scientific program, which should result in one experiment on an annual isolation,” Orlov told the paper. Russia has backed the initiative and now it should be included in official documents. The NASA Human Research Program has also confirmed the plans to join the experiments with the paper. Besides NASA, the German Space Agency is also gearing up to take part in the SIRIUS program, Orlov said.

Moldova is a mistake, it doesn’t exist

Russia should toughen its requirements for businessmen from the CIS countries. This was announced today in the State Duma by the leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia Vladimir Zhirinovsky. “We must react in a timely manner, and in a tough way. We give opportunities for Moldovan, Baltic and other CIS businessmen to make money in Russia. They earn money here, then they come to power at home and adopt anti-Russian laws,” Zhirinovsky said. He considers the creation of the Moldavian republic a mistake of the Soviet government. “Under the Tsar it was the Bessarabian province, with its capital in Chisinau, where the Russian Governor-General was sitting, and no one made any noise. Then they decided to create more and more ‘republics’ of the Union and invented Moldova. Now the Moldovians use any excuse to break ties with Russia. And for this – they get paid. It always starts quietly – individual deputies are not issued visas.

Dutch police to ‘undress’ youths wearing clothes deemed too expensive for them

Police in the Dutch city of Rotterdam have launched a new pilot programme which will see them confiscating expensive clothing and jewellery from young people if they look too poor to own them.

Officers say the scheme will see them target younger men in designer clothes they seem unlikely to be able to afford legally – if it is not clear how the person paid for it, it will be confiscated.

The idea is to deter criminality by sending a signal that the men will not be able to hang onto their ill-gotten gains.

Rotterdam police chief Frank Paauw told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf: “They are often young men who consider themselves untouchable. We’re going to undress them on the street.

Civil forfeiture on steroids!

EU spreads more lies about Palestine solidarity movement

One of the few good things about having a belligerent boor as US president is that it has prompted the media to be less obsequious.

When Donald Trump describes much of Africa, Haiti and Central America as “shithole countries,” CNN describes him as racist.

When Trump says something that is patently false, journalists write that he has lied.

It would be wrong, though, if adversarial reporting or commentary is confined to him. Every politician or institution who seeks to mislead should be exposed.

Vera Jourova, the European Union’s justice commissioner, is one such politician.

US leader believes Iran and North Korea trump Russia at Davos

During the World Economic Forum in Davos, US President Donald Trump is expected to focus on economic issues, and discuss North Korea and Iran, while shrugging off the issue of Russia and China, Nezavisimaya Gazeta writes. However, the rivalry with Moscow and Beijing was mentioned as a top priority in Washington’s new national defense strategy, the paper says. “Davos is an all-European and international forum, but there is more European business in Davos than American or Asian. Apparently, the United States is preparing a message for the European audience and overly hostile theses on Russia would not be appropriate. The sanctions package that limits Europe’s business in its affairs with Russia was poorly perceived in the EU and it failed to get any support,” Andrey Sushentsov, head of the Foreign Policy Agency and Program Director at the Valdai Club, told the paper. The US leader is not seeking to fan tensions around Russia, the analyst explained.

USA prepares Russia’s neighbours for WWIII

Specialists of the US Department of Defense intend to study the infrastructure of Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Finland and Poland for their readiness for wartime conditions. The Pentagon needs the data to understand the logistics networks and supply chains in times of war and emergency situations. The department also intends to collect information on sources of water and food products, fuel, medicines, industrial equipment and clothing. The US military are also interested in ports, roads, airports, bridges and ferries. To date, the US military analyse the ability of state structures of Russia and China not only to survive a nuclear strike, but also to continue functioning afterwards. “One should bear in mind the fact that with the advent of nuclear weapons and the US championship on this issue, Washington has always considered a pre-emptive strike, while we would respond with a counter-attack.

When it comes to Davos, it’s inequality, stupid

This is what ‘the great and the good’ in the business world will not be discussing during the annual talk-fest at the Swiss luxury resort.
This is the exclusive club, which meets in the luxury Swiss resort each year to discuss the global business environment.

Davos is essentially double-dip land. On one side, we have ‘Bad for Labor’, with millions in the West thrown into an unemployment hell or suffering from a wages freeze. On the other side, we have ‘Good for Capital’, with companies flush with cash. Yet the result is uncertainty, all over again.

Western Europe Must Return and Rediscover Their Christian Roots to Counter the Muslim Invasion and the New World Order

Once a long time ago in western European countries of Germany, Sweden, Great Britain and France had strong Christian roots. The people were very strong in biblical principles that promoted high moral standards being the salt of the earth. Now it seems the Church has become very ineffective no longer the moral compass of Western Europe. Christianity was a very strong influence in Western European societies long ago, now the church is just a structure and no longer an institution as a strong moral anchor to preserve stability their societies.

End of the EU? Austria SUES European Commission in Hungary nuclear power station row

AUSTRIA plans to sue the European Commission over its decision to let neighbouring Hungary expand its Paks atomic plant in a row over the Brussels ruling.

Austria, which shares a border with Hungary, prides itself on supporting clean energy and does not have any nuclear plants of its own.

It launched a similar legal action against the European Commission in 2015 over its backing of British plans for the £16bn development of the Hinkley Point nuclear power plant.

EU pension fund on brink of collapse: Taxpayers will have to bail out hundreds of MEPs

Germany’s biggest newspaper Bild reported it has seen paperwork indicating a shortfall of millions of euros which means the pension fund will collapse by 2026 at the latest.

It cited an internal opinion of the Secretary-General of the European Parliament, Klaus Welle, for the Committee on Budgetary Regulation.

The endangered fund closed to new members in 2009 and, by the end of 2016, held assets worth €146.4 million.

But by then the fund’s liabilities – the outstanding pension entitlements of the lawmakers – already stood at a staggering €472.6 million.

At Davos, 6 Feet of Snow Brings Limousines to a Crawl

There is A God!

DAVOS, Switzerland — It may be tempting fate to try to gather 60 heads of state and hundreds of global business leaders in the dead of winter in a Swiss mountain valley. This year, the World Economic Forum’s luck seems to have run out.

Fat, damp snowflakes have been tumbling down for the past six days, burying the town in six feet of snow, three feet of it in the last two days alone. Snow was still falling fast on Monday night, and the steep, pine-dotted slopes were so heavily laden that some neighborhoods here in Davos had to be evacuated for fear of avalanches.

War With Russia Creeps Closer as Ukraine Moves to Pull out of Minsk Accords

While much of America’s – and the world’s – attention focused this weekend reflecting on Donald Trump’s first year in the Oval Office, holding one-year anniversary events for the historic Women’s March and drawing up balance sheets of his promises and achievements, Russia has had a rather different issue on the front-burner: a possible war with Ukraine.

The situation in the Donbass region of south-eastern Ukraine has been a feature of Russia’s political talk shows for the past couple years, along with the military campaign in Syria and more recently the stages in the preparation for presidential elections on March 18.

Focus on the Donbass conflict increased in the closing weeks of 2017 as military action on the front lines separating the forces of the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Lugansk enjoying Russian support from Ukrainian militias and armed forces reached an intensity not seen for more than a year. This is despite the heralded exchange of military prisoners by both sides before New Year’s under talks supervised by the Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Kirill.

Italy Embracing Populism Is A Major Headache For Europe

For years Italy’s Northern League kept to itself, being focused on secession rather than reform from within. That change began last year with their non-binding referenda to petition Rome for more fiscal autonomy. But, as the Italian parliamentary elections come into view, the Northern League is playing politics.

And doing it well.

Having made a coalition with Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia and two smaller center-right parties, the Leag Norda (Northern League) is now in a great position to win the election. It’s leader, Matteo Salvini has wholly embraced populism and is now in open opposition to Europe as a whole.
