Italian national-conservative Brothers of Italy (FdI) leader Giorgia Meloni condemned recent far-left violence in Spain, arguing that violent leftists were guards of the progressive system. Meloni commented about the recent far-left violence in Spain last week during a speech by VOX leader Santiago Abascal in Madrid, which saw militants throw rocks and other objects as Abascal was delivering his speech. “I expressed the solidarity of European conservatives with our Spanish brothers in Vox because what happened in Vallecas is scandalous. The images we saw left me speechless: throwing stones and bottles at the police, militants attacked and threatened only because they were attending a rally,” Meloni told newspaper Il Giornale . “The left is dramatically the same all over the world. You only have the right to speak if you think, say and support what they want,” she added. Far-left extremists threw rocks and other objects at the leader of Spain’s populist VOX party, … [Read more...] about Italian Firebrand Meloni: Violent Leftists Guard Progressive System
The following timeline of events is based on parliamentary committee testimony, media reports, interviews and public statements. Around March 2015 : Then prime minister Stephen Harper is briefed by national security adviser Richard Fadden on Gen. Jonathan Vance, the leading candidate for the chief of the defence staff position. Harper is told that while he was in Italy on a NATO deployment, Vance was in a relationship with a U.S. officer who was subordinate to him but not in his chain of command, and who later became his fiancée. The military and defence department had reviewed the matter, finding no open investigation or reprimand against Vance. Spring 2015: Harper meets with Vance and raises the NATO story, asking if there is anything else he should know. “I don’t recall the general making any comment other than to state he and his fiancée were relieved that the matter had been reviewed and was behind them,” Harper’s chief of staff, Ray Novak, would later testify. April … [Read more...] about The allegations against retired general Jonathan Vance
Nocturnal curfews will be applied if the incidence of coronavirus cases of 100 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants is crossed. This is what the draft of Germany's new Infection Protection Act says. So far, curfews in Germany have only been used selectively. Other countries are using them more extensively: France and the Netherlands, for example, but also Turkey, Morocco, and Tunisia. In Argentina, nighttime restrictions have been in effect again since Friday for more than half of the citizens. The argument in favor of nighttime curfews is: Infections often happen in private. According to the theory, such contacts and thus the spread of the virus can be reduced by curfews . A majority of Germans would support them if they were only allowed to temporarily leave their homes at night in exceptional cases to combat the pandemic. At the beginning of April, 56% were in favor of the measure in a survey by the polling institute YouGov, 37% were against it. The results are reported … [Read more...] about Fact check: How effective are nighttime curfews?

The Good Wife Hail Mary Season 6 Episode 11 Editor’s Rating 5 stars * * * * * « Previous Next » The Good Wife Photo: JEFF NEUMANN/CBS You can relegate her son to pariah status for getting his ex-girlfriend pregnant and annex her daughter until she’s needed to advance a plot point, but last night’s episode of The Good Wife proved that you can’t take the mother out of Alicia Florrick. Just look at what she did for Cary. He needed to get ready for prison and she didn’t have the tools to teach him what he needed to know, so Alicia did what all upper-class moms do and sent him to day camp. (I know this comparison hinges on the idea that Alicia and Cary have a parent-child relationship, something I wouldn’t have suggested at all before this season, but how else do you classify the relationship between you and the person who pays for your “camp,” drops you off, and tells you to call her after?) Like all effective camp counselors/pre-prison … [Read more...] about Recap: With Our Apologies
