The Donetsk National Republic lives!

A great turning point has been reached. The puppet fascist regime in Kiev is rapidly falling apart, the rats are leaving the sinking ship (perhaps using their Israeli passports to flee with!) , their German backers have pulled the rug out from underneath them, and the state terrorism in the east has been firmly rebuffed.

The following press conference is worth watching in its entirety. The two key speakers are: Alexander V. Zakharchenko, Chairman of the Council of Ministers of Donetsk National Republic, and Vladimir Kononov, Defense Minister of DNR.

Formation of a State: a new power emerges. Let freedom reign!

Jean-Marie Le Pen does it again!

His daughter Marine has been working hard on giving the fascist Front national a veneer of respectability.

But count on dear old Dad to crack his usual unfunny racist jokes. To pledges by performers such as Yannick Noah (the former tennis star) and Patrick Bruel not to perform in France if the FN should come first in the polls, after something I didn't get about calling Noah a pig, he added "on en fera une fournée", (we'll make them an oven batch). Noah is Black. Bruel is Jewish.

Cons attack Sheila Copps after she finds Cheryl Gallant NATO briefing binder at airport

Detailed information about Canada’s foreign affairs policy and discussions by NATO nations sat around Ottawa’s airport for hours last week after Conservative MP Cheryl Gallant inadvertently left her briefing binder in the airport lounge.

The more than 200-page binder, containing everything from information about NATO’s challenges to details about conflicts in Afghanistan, Syria, Russia and China was found by former Liberal cabinet minister Sheila Copps.

Copps said she gave the binder to former Conservative MP Gurmant Grewal who was at the same meeting in PEI and asked him to get it back to Gallant. Grewal’s wife, Nina Grewal, currently serves as a Conservative MP.

Copps is still somewhat surprised Gallant left the binder at the airport.
