  • Germany seeks UN Security Council seat again

    But Germany isn’t in any position to be providing military guarantees beyond European borders.

    They are part of NATO. The German military has declined over the last few decades. There are just 178,000 active soldiers, placing it among the 30 largest military forces in the world and making it the second largest in the European Union behind France in terms of personnel. In addition the Bundeswehr has approximately 40,000 reserve personnel (2014). With German military expenditures at €34.4 billion, the Bundeswehr is among the top ten best-funded forces in the world, even if in terms of share of German GDP, military expenditures remain average at 1.2% and below the NATO recommendation of 2%.

    After a ruling of the Federal Constitutional Court in 1994 the term "defence" has been defined to not only include protection of the borders of Germany, but also crisis reaction and conflict prevention, or more broadly as guarding the security of Germany anywhere in the world.

    In a Reversal, Germany’s Military Growth Is Met With Western Relief

    You know times have changed when the Germans announce they are expanding their army for the first time in 25 years — and no one objects.

    Back when the Berlin Wall fell, Britain and France in particular feared the re-emergence of a German colossus in Europe. By contrast, Berlin’s pledge last month to add almost 7,000 soldiers to its military by 2023, and an earlier announcement to spend up to 130 billion euros, about $148 billion, on new equipment by 2030 were warmly welcomed by NATO allies.

    Their army doesn’t even have an armored division any longer, and yet they keep pushing the EU boundaries eastward (with little to back it up).

    The 1st Panzer Division (German: 1. Panzerdivision) is an armoured division of the German Army. It also bears the designation Intervention Force Division (Division Eingreifkräfte). Its staff is based at Hanover. In the course of the current reorganisation of the Bundeswehr it will become the backbone of Germany's newly formed intervention forces which will have a manpower of 35,000 soldiers in total. This division is equipped and trained for high intensity combat operations against militarily organized enemies as well as peacekeeping missions. The majority of all German troops assigned to EU-Battlegroups and Nato Response Forces will come from this division. It also represents Germany's permanent contribution to the binational I. German/Dutch Corps.

    The Dutch 43rd Mechanized Brigade. will be integrated into the 1st Panzer Division, and will be operational from 2019.

    Intervention Force Division / 1st Panzer Division is Germany's last full-scale conventional division.

    Germany has nothing to offer. And nobody is talking about UN peacekeeping forces. We are talking if the UN ever authorizes and votes for a war.

    I would have problems with the US getting involved in any instance where the UN authorizes war. The UN is controlled by the Left and the Third World. If they had their way, Israel would be wiped off the map.

    The world works better when heinie is kept down. They are a world destabilizing wrecking crew.

    You know very little about history and Germany. Germans have contributed immensely to the world in terms of science, technology, music, philosophy, etc.

    46 million Americans have German ancestry. German Americans represent 17% of the total U.S. population and 26% of the non-Hispanic white population. German-Americans are America's largest single ethnic group (if you divide Hispanics into Mexican-Americans, Cuban-Americans, etc). n 2013, according to the Census bureau, 46m Americans claimed German ancestry: more than the number who traced their roots to Ireland (33m) or England (25m).

    As someone who can trace his German ancestors back to 1704 in America, longer than my Irish ancestors in 1840, I find your comments offensive and groundless. My wife is German, an immigrant.

    You are an ignorant fool.

    Russia contributes 1.602%, which places Russia as ranking 14th among all the UN member states. Not even in the top ten.

    And they are the very worst the planet has to offer politically.

    How so? Worse than Iran? Worse than China? Worse than North Korea? Worse than Russia? What a ridiculous statement.

    Also they don’t contribute fighting forces to UN actions

    They contribute money like we do. The US contributes a miniscule 80 people to UN peacekeeping forces It is a racket for the developing world to provide these forces in return for money.

    That’s why Germany should never be on the security council.

    So supplying the UN with combat forces is the metric?

  • Supreme Court Vacates McDonnell's Corruption Conviction

    kabar to kabar

    Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell has said his daughter and her husband paid for their own wedding. So a $15,000 check from a major campaign donor to pay for the food at the affair was a gift to the bride and groom and not to him and therefore did not have to be publicly disclosed under the law, the governor says.

    But documents obtained by The Washington Post show that McDonnell signed the catering contract, making him financially responsible for the 2011 event. The governor made handwritten notes to the caterer in the margins. In addition, the governor paid nearly $8,000 in deposits for the catering.

    When the combination of the governor’s deposit and the gift from the donor resulted in an overpayment to the caterer, the refund check of more than $3,500 went to McDonnell’s wife and not to his daughter, her husband or the donor.

    The new documents suggest that the governor was more involved with the financing of the wedding than he has acknowledged.

    McDonnell was a crook, pure and simple. He lied about the Rolex watch and the loans. For nearly two years, the McDonnells repeatedly asked executive Jonnie R. Williams Sr. for loans and gifts of money, clothes, golf fees and equipment, trips, and private plane rides. The gifts and loans totaled at least $165,000.

    I think the most he did to "use his influence" is take out a bottle of Williams' supplement and show it around at a cabinet meeting.

    With his Virginia Beach rental properties hemorrhaging tens of thousands of dollars each year, then­Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell turned repeatedly to family and wealthy benefactors for large loans, a man who helped manage the properties’ finances testified Monday.

    McDonnell received more than $100,000 from his father, the manager testified. He received $50,000 from a radiologist friend, the manager said. And with the properties still losing money, McDonnell picked up a final $70,000 from Richmond businessman Jonnie R. Williams Sr. — the man at the center of the federal corruption case against the former governor and first lady, the manager said.

    When Robert F. McDonnell took office as Virginia’s 71st governor, he and his wife were mired in nearly $75,000 in credit card debt, records show. That figure soon grew to more than $90,000 — and came down because of insurance proceeds, a family trust and the generosity of a wealthy Richmond businessman, the records show. On the 13th day of the federal corruption case against McDonnell (R) and his wife, prosecutors presented the evidence about the family finances as a striking wrap-up to their case, as they began working to connect the dots for jurors.

    McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, are charged with lending the prestige of the governor’s office to Williams and his dietary supplement company, Star Scientific, in exchange for loans, vacations and luxury goods. Prosecutors have said the couple were motivated to seek the executive’s generosity in part because of financial distress.

    Hulser said that the couple’s debt had dipped to about $30,000 by January 2011 — largely because of money they received from a life insurance payment and a family trust. But later that year, Maureen McDonnell deposited a $50,000 check from Williams, Hulser testified. And from that bank account, she wrote checks to cover bills and other expenses, the agent said. One of the checks went to pay off a Bank of America credit card in the former governor’s name. That would indicate to jurors that Robert McDonnell shared in the benefit of the $50,000 loan to his wife and possibly knew of its existence.

    In one of several examples in Hulser’s testimony, on June 1, 2011, the day Maureen McDonnell purchased Star Scientific stock, phone records show she called her broker less than an hour before she called her husband. She was in Florida at the time, appearing at an event to promote Star’s new supplement, Anatabloc.

    Prosecutors on Thursday unveiled what could be a critical new piece of evidence in their case against former Virginia governor Robert F. McDonnell and his wife, Maureen: a photograph of the governor, grinning and holding up his wrist to display a watch.

    Testifying during the McDonnells’ federal corruption trial, businessman Jonnie R. Williams Sr. said he received the photo by text message in December 2012 in response to one he sent the governor. The watch on McDonnell’s wrist appeared to be the Rolex that Williams had purchased for the governor at the first lady’s request a year earlier.

    The picture could shatter any assertion that the governor was unaware that Williams — who was then the chief executive of a dietary-supplement company — had provided the expensive timepiece. McDonnell (R) has previously said the watch was a Christmas gift from his wife.

    Brexit was about nationalism and sovereignty versus globalism. UK voters want control over their own destiny and borders. The EU started out as a common market for goods and services. It has been transformed by the elites into a political union, which runs counter to what is happening worldwide.

    I can remember when there were a little over 100 countries in the world. There are now over 200. We saw what happened with the dissolution of the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia. Czechoslovakia broke up. The Basques want an independent nation. Scotland barely lost its bid for independence. There are separatist movements in Belgium.

    There is a reason why there are countries like Luxembourg, San Marino, Monaco, etc. in Europe despite hundreds of years of wars and occupation by invading armies. Nationalism is a powerful force, almost biological, and no matter how the elites try to impose their globalist views, they will not succeed. Brexit is just the latest example of the resistance to such changes.

    Post colonial Africa has broken up into many nations fueled by tribalism. Similar things have happened and are happening in Asia and the Pacific. The trend is towards more sovereign nations, not less.

    Rubio blasts opponents, Trump as he announces reelection

    “It’s been well-documented that I have significant disagreements with Donald Trump on his failure to articulate policies and many of the things that he has said, especially about women and minorities,” Rubio said in the interview, mentioning Trump’s name unprompted. “And so, I’m prepared to be a senator that will encourage him to make the right decisions, but also stand up to the bad decisions and the bad policies if he’s elected president.”

    Rubio didn’t shy away from knocking Trump for drawing attention to the Mexican heritage of an Indiana-born judge who’s presiding over a case against Trump University.

    “All I can tell you is that they’re not comments that I agree with. They went beyond the pale. I think that that judge is fully American [and his] experience is not unlike mine,” Rubio, the son of Cuban immigrants, said when asked about Trump’s comments.

    Rubio made clear, though, that he believes Hillary Clinton would be worse than Trump: “He’s not running against George Washington.”

And by 2043, non-Hispanic whites will be 50% of the population. Non-Hispanic whites are the Reps base. They voted 59-39 for Romney. The problem is that they are a declining percentage of the population. In 1970 they were 89% of the population and today they are 63%.

    Nehlen is not the guy to challenge Ryan. He is a bad candidate. Ryan will defeat him easily. He is no Dave Brat.

    We need to defeat Ryan in the general election.

    I suggest you look up the bio of Eric Cantor. He was the house majority leader and got defeated in a primary a few years ago.

    I helped Dave Brat take down Cantor. Brat is a far better candidate than Nehlen. He was an economics professor at a local college. And there was large spread dissatisfaction with Cantor in his District because he grew disconnected from his constituents. The Tea Party and a local organization helped take down Cantor.

    Ryan goes home every weekend to his constituents. He won't lose in the primary. Better to defeat him in the general.

    Sitting Speakers do not lose primary Challenges.

    Although he didn't lose in the primary, Speaker Tom Foley became the first sitting Speaker of the House to lose his bid for re-election since Galusha A. Grow in 1862.

    If Ryan makes it thru the primary, Rep voters should vote for his Dem opponent.

    Nehlen is not the guy to take down Ryan. I heard him on the Laura Ingraham show. Not very impressive. No Dave Brat.

    Paul Nehlen - possible Democrat plant?

    Who cares. Ryan should be taken out either in the primary or in the general election. So what if a Dem replaces him? Ryan in his current position is far more dangerous than a freshman Dem congressman.

    More disinformation. This is the narrative the Dems want. Disgruntled, closeted gay kills fellow gays due to psychological problems. He wasn’t a terrorist. Just a home grown hater.

    They want more people in the pews. Hispanics are the answer for them. They would rather sell out this country and have open borders.
