    Watching A Charlie Brown Christmas has been a tradition for millions since it first aired on December 9, 1965. While many love the iconic Vince Guaraldi score, the humor and the animation, one part of the special has always stood out and made it unique: Linus’s recitation of the Gospel of Luke. In 2015, The Washington Post published a retrospective on A Charlie Brown Christmas. Michael Cavna explained Peanuts creator Charles Schulz’s mission in making the special: Charles Schulz insisted on one core purpose: A Charlie Brown Christmas had to be about something. Namely, the true meaning of Christmas. Otherwise,...
  • 'Europe must not follow Trump's military build-up logic': a chat with Merkel's main election rival

    Angela Merkel’s main rival in the upcoming election opened up this week in an interview about the balance between freedom and security, as well as about what Europe’s military strategy should be. Six weeks before Germany’s national election in which Merkel will seek a fourth term, her main rival Martin Schulz is lagging behind in the polls. In the most recent survey at the end of July by Stern, RTL and Forsa Institute, Schulz sank to his lowest level of support since being nominated as the Social Democrats’ (SPD) chancellor candidate. Just 21 percent of respondents said that hypothetically speaking,...

    BERLIN (Reuters) - German SPD leader Martin Schulz set out plans to boost investment and enhance European unity, accusing Chancellor Angela Merkel of making empty promises. Schulz, the former European Parliament President, is hoping to beat Merkel in a Sept. 24 election but his center-left Social Democrats (SPD) have lost momentum in the polls after initial gains following his nomination in January. Presenting a 10-point plan for a modern Germany and a better Europe, Schulz told supporters in Berlin that he would compel the state to raise spending on infrastructure and education. "Germany can do more," Schulz said.

    Social Democrat (SPD) leader Martin Schulz could be facing a possible scandal as details have emerged regarding unusual contracts he made for friends when European Union President. The allegations of potential misconduct by the former European Union president revolve mostly around a man named Markus Engels, a long-time confidant of Schulz and his current campaign manager for the German federal elections later this year. According to reports, Schulz gave Engels a lavish contract in 2012 to represent Schulz interests in Berlin, though he was registered in Brussels — allowing him to avoid large amounts of tax, Der Spiegel reports.
  • Merkel election rival accuses Trump of being 'un-American'

    Martin Schulz, the Social Democrat who is to take on Angela Merkel in September's national election, has said that Donald Trump has not acted like an American since becoming US President. “What Trump is doing is un-American,” Schulz told the Funke media group. “The United States stand, like few other countries, for enlightenment, democracy and the values of freedom.” In a stinging criticism of the US President, Schulz said that Trump was “running with a wrecking ball through American values.” […] The SPD man said that it is Berlin’s duty to emphasize to Washington that Germany and Europe strongly oppose...

    The campaigns of Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders have reportedly agreed to four additional debates, including one Thursday in New Hampshire before the state's Feb. 9 primary. However, both camps said the agreement was not final and that Democratic National Committee had yet to give its OK. The committee has not agreed to debates beyond the original four sanctioned ones, amid complaints from Sanders and other Democrats that Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schulz, Florida, has limited the schedule to protect the front-running Clinton. But in recent days, Clinton has urged the party to add the televised...

    Viana do Castelo, June 29 (Lusa) - A German citizen arrested in Lisbon by the Judicial Police for alleged paedophilia lived for two decades in Vila Nova de Cerveira, which was viewed as benemérito and has even been bestowed with the Medal of Merit of the county. "Na altura [1994], estávamos longe de imaginar que esse cidadão [Ulrich Schulz] pudesse vir a ser indiciado pelo crime de pedofilia, tanto assim que a decisão de lhe atribuir a medalha de mérito mereceu a aprovação unânime do Executivo", disse, à Lusa, o presidente da Câmara de Vila Nova de Cerveira.

    OKLAHOMA CITY Republicans picked up a seat in the state Senate today when Oklahoma Farm Bureau representative Mike Schulz beat Democrat Robbie Kerr in a special election in southwest Oklahoma. Unofficial results had Schulz with 56-point-eight percent of the vote and Kerr with the other 43-point-two percent. The two had combined to raise more than 500-thousand dollars in a campaign to replace Kerr's late husband. Senator Robert -M- Kerr died earlier this year after a long fight with cancer. The victory gives Republicans 23 seats in the 48-member house. Democrats still maintain a majority with the remaining 25 seats. Democrats...

    A video showing the execution of an American hostage was posted on a website today, and the Islamic Army of Iraq claimed the victim was Jamestown, N.D., native Ronald Schulz. The video did not show Schulz’s face, the Associated Press reported, and it was impossible to identify him conclusively. The man was blindfolded, kneeling, with his hands tied behind his back and facing away from the camera when he was purportedly shot in the back of the head. As the execution was aired on the website, a separate piece of film on a split screen showed the footage of Schulz...
  • US faces prison ship allegations

    US faces prison ship allegations The United Nations says it has learned of serious allegations that the US is secretly detaining terrorism suspects, notably on American military ships. The special rapporteur on torture Manfred Nowak said the accusations were rumours at this stage, but urged the US to co-operate in an investigation. He said the UN wants lists of the places of detention and those held. The comments come five days after the UN accused the US of stalling on their requests to visit Guantanamo Bay. Investigators have been asking to visit the jail in Cuba to carry out checks...

    It's good to see that Amnesty International has had to backtrack from its comparison of Guantanamo Bay to the Soviet "gulag." Less than two weeks after making that analogy, Amnesty's U.S. boss issued what amounted to a full retraction on "Fox News Sunday" this weekend. "Clearly, this is not an exact or a literal analogy," said William Schulz. "In size and in duration, there are not similarities between U.S. detention facilities and the gulag.... People are not being starved in those facilities. They're not being subjected to forced labor."... And what about Mr. Schulz's description of Donald Rumsfeld and others...

    HAMBURG, Germany, Aug. 10 — A German court today began a retrial of Mounir el-Motassadeq, the only person convicted of involvement in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, with the disclosure that the United States will for the first time share evidence about the plot. Mr. Motassadeq's conviction was thrown out in March by an appeals court, which said that critical evidence had been withheld by American authorities. After having been sentenced to 15 years in prison, Mr. Motassadeq was freed in April. The decision by the United States to offer limited cooperation to the Germans introduces a combustible element to...

    A former IRS agent who believes citizens are not required to pay federal income taxes will appear in U.S. District Court in Sacramento tomorrow to face charges for numerous alleged tax crimes. Joseph Banister, 41, a leading figure in the "tax honesty" movement, was taken into custody Nov. 19 by IRS agents and released on $25,000 bond after pleading not guilty. A Certified Public Accountant in San Jose, Calif., Banister has been telling his clients they don't need to file federal income tax returns because the 16th Amendment, which gives Congress "power to lay and collect taxes on incomes," was...

    Court: Taxpayers can ignore IRS summonses Ruling says action has no teeth without federal court order A U.S. appeals court has ruled the IRS cannot compel taxpayers to turn over personal and private property without a federal court order and that taxpayers can ignore the agencies summonses until actual enforcement action is taken. In the case Schulz v. IRS, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan ruled: ... absent an effort to seek enforcement through a federal court, IRS summonses apply no force to taxpayers, and no consequence whatever can befall a taxpayer who refuses, ignores, or otherwise does...

    Forget the war in Iraq, Afghanistan and our excellent adventure in Liberia. Forget about Kobe, Arnold, Arriana, Scott and Laci. The biggest news of the entire week is that on August 8, 2003, the IRS was unable to convince a jury in Memphis, Tennessee that the Federal Tax Code requires the citizens to pay individual income taxes. I kid you not. I watched as many Sunday news programs as I could possibly stand, and I didn’t hear a single mention of the IRS’ debacle in Memphis. If you ever had doubts about the mainstream media being controlled by the federal...
