The signatories made the obligatory bow to denouncing Trump as „a real threat to democracy“ and called for „greater equality and inclusion across our society.“ But this wasn’t enough to save them from denunciation for stating these truthful facts:

„The free exchange of information and ideas, the lifeblood of a liberal society, is daily becoming more constricted. While we have come to expect this on the radical right, censoriousness is also spreading more widely in our culture: an intolerance of opposing views, a vogue for public shaming and ostracism, and the tendency to dissolve complex policy issues in a blinding moral certainty. We uphold the value of robust and even caustic counter-speech from all quarters. But it is now all too common to hear calls for swift and severe retribution in response to perceived transgressions of speech and thought. More troubling still, institutional leaders, in a spirit of panicked damage…

Donald Trump has called for the extradition of a former MI6 agent who was behind a controversial dossier about his alleged links to Russia.

Christopher Steele, now a director of Orbis Business Intelligence, was responsible for the ‚dirty dossier‘ published in 2016 that alleged Russian influence over President Trump.

The Steele Dossier contained allegations of collusion between Mr Trump’s US presidential campaign and the Kremlin, which have been denied by both parties.

On Wednesday, Orbis was ordered to pay compensation to two Russian businessmen that had complained about data protection breaches including inaccuracies in the dossier relating to them.

Taking to Twitter, the US President shared a report on London’s High Court ruling and claimed that Mr Steele should go on trial over the document.

In his retweet, Mr Trump said: ‚This man should be extradited, tried, and thrown into jail…‘

Eltern, Kind und Kinderstube: 59. von 144 Lehrende und Lernende

bumi bahagia / Glückliche Erde

Warum sind Kinder aufmerksamkeitsgestört?



Lernen geschieht häufig im Schlaf. Das soll nicht heißen, daß du dein Kind ermunterst, in der Schule zu schlafen. Aber du hast sicher auch schon erlebt, daß du morgens eine Lösung für ein Problem bekamst, das dir gestern unlösbar vorgekommen war. „Den Seinen gibt‘s der Herr im Schlaf“ ist auch so eine biblische Redensart, die dazu paßt. Wie günstig das für die Lehrenden ist, wurde noch gar nicht genug gewürdigt. Die müßten nur darauf achten, daß ihr „Gefolge“ genügend schläft, und der Lehrstoff würde „sitzen“. Warum sprechen wir darüber?

Safety First is a Bad Ideology, by Diana W. Thomas


At what point do the costs of preventing or ameliorating a risk outweigh the benefits of doing so, and does it matter if someone else is bearing the costs? From Diana W. Thomas at aier.org:

bubble wrap

When you walk out of your house, or enter the public street, you are on shared ground, a community space. During the pandemic of 2020, community spaces that are private venues, like Disney, have closed down just as often as community spaces that are public venues, like schools and playgrounds.

Public and private distinctions do not make a difference. Risk is the key factor to understanding why common spaces are closed and likely to remain so, at least in the way we were used to. In what is called the asymmetric loss function, a decision maker’s cost of a mistake in one direction is many times greater than the cost of error in the…

Young White Mother Killed By Black Lives Matter Mob for Allegedly Saying ‘All Lives Matter,’ National Media Fully Ignores, by Cassandra Fairbanks


There is a double standard, or maybe a triple or quadruple standard, about which murders get reported. From Cassandra Fairbanks at thegatewaypundit.com:

A 24-year-old mother was killed by a Black Lives Matter mob in Indianapolis last week, allegedly for saying “All Lives Matter.”

Unlike Charlottesville, or any violence from the right, this killing was reported so quietly that barely anyone even noticed.

Jessica Doty Whitaker was shot and killed following an altercation with Black Lives Matter thugs who were upset that she and her fiance had said “All Lives Matter” last Sunday.

“According to the victim’s family, the shooting started with an argument over Black Lives Matter and language. Eventually the two sides separated and walked away from each other, until witnesses claim the killer opened fire from a nearby bridge and ran away,” Fox 59 reports.

“It was squashed and they went up the hill and left…

An Open Letter Challenge To Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey On Censorship, by Jason Sullivan and Bill Binney


You have to wonder if Jack Dorsey will ever read this letter, but it has some worthwhile sentiments. From Jason Sullivan and Bill Binney at zerohedge.com:

Open Letter to Jack Dorsey…

The American People and Social Media

„We seek a free flow of information… we are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values.“

– John F. Kennedy, February 1962

Dear Mr. Dorsey,

At the September 5, 2018, U.S. Congressional Hearing in which you gave testimony under oath, you stated, in part:

Twitter does not use political ideology to make any decisions, whether related to ranking content on our service or how we enforce our rules. We believe strongly in being impartial, and we strive to enforce our rules impartially. We do not shadowban anyone based on political ideology. From a simple business perspective and to serve the public…

NY Times Fakes a Climate Change Debate

Iowa Climate Science Education

Guest Essay by Kip Hansen ? 13 July 2020

The New York Times? Climate section is a source of continuing amusement for me. This one made me laugh out loud.

In an exhibition of astounding audacity, the New York Times? Editor of the Climate Desk, Hannah Fairfield, stages what is billed as a ?debate? about moving forward with solutions to climate change.


Let me be perfectly clear, this is a fake debate ? no debate takes place. Having given up the standards of professional journalism almost entirely, the Climate desk has moved on from misinformation, disinformation and fake news to . . . . Fake Debates.

If you have one and a half hours to utterly waste, you can watch the whole thing here.

Not only does the Times falsely claim that this represents some kind of debate, they can?t even count to ten ? there are…

Judge Orders Shutdown Of Dakota Access Pipeline

US Issues

By Chris White, From The Daily Caller – Re-Blogged From WUWT

A federal judge Monday ordered the shut down of the Dakota Access Pipeline while federal regulators conduct a review of the multi-billion dollar pipeline.

Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and three other Native American tribes requested the shutdown, arguing that the pipeline harms the environment and tramples on tribal lands. North Dakota officials believe shuttering the pipeline could damage the state’s economy, which is highly dependent on gas and oil production.

The pipeline has been shipping North Dakota oil to Illinois for the past three years. President Donald Trump signed a pair of executive orders in 2017 advancing the construction of the pipeline, along with another oil project that former President Barack Obama scuttled in 2015.

Vatikan: Weitere Seligsprechung in Sicht und vier Würdigungen als „Diener Gottes“


Der Vatikan hat den Weg zur Seligsprechung der italienischen Frau Mariantonia Samà freigemacht sowie den heroischen (heldenhaften) Tugendgrad von vier weiteren Glaubensvorbildern anerkannt.
Der Papst habe dazu am vorigen Freitag bei einer Audienz für den Präfekten der Selig- und Heiligsprechungskongregation, Kardinal Angelo Becciu, seine Zustimmung erteilt. Es handelt sich um zwei Frauen und drei Männer, darunter ein Tiroler Jesuitenpater.
Mariantonia Samà wurde am 2. März 1875 in Sant’Andrea Jonio in der süditalienischen Provinz Catanzaro geboren und erkrankte als junges Mädchen an einer Infektion. Sie wurde auf die Fürsprache des hl. Bruno von Köln geheilt, nachdem sie nach Serra San Bruno gebracht wurde, wo der Gründer der Kartäuser starb und verehrt wurde. Zwei Jahre später wurde sie von einer weiteren neurologischen oder arthrosebedingten Krankheit befallen: Diese führte zu ihrer Lähmung, so dass sie fortan in Rückenlage und mit angehobenen Knien leben musste.

Betreut von ihrer Mutter, dem Pfarrer…
