    Socialist state lawmakers are itching to impose new tax increases to cover the ever-increasing cost of migrants in the Big Apple — insisting that forcing New Yorkers to pay even more is the only way out of the mushrooming crisis. Two state senators told The Post new taxes were on the table, while their grassroots cadres have buzzed on social media.
  • (Socialist icon) AOC’s call to deregulate sunscreen angers the Left, but it could save lives

    Socialist icon Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) raised eyebrows recently by saying politicians must free the sunscreen industry - from the clutches of the government. In a TikTok video posted last week, the New York congresswoman joined esthetician Charlotte Palermino on camera to make the case that government regulations have hindered the industry. **SNIP** Grace Fors, writing at Socialist Alternative, takes AOC to task for saying the sunscreen industry should be deregulated. Interestingly, Fors doesn’t even bother with the pretense that the FDA is “protecting people” from harmful products; she’s concerned that AOC is helping profiteers in the $110 billion-a-year skin...

    MADRID (AP) – Spain´s newly elected Parliament voted Thursday by a majority to elect a Socialist candidate as chamber speaker, breathing some life into acting Socialist Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez´s aspirations of forming another leftist government. The crucial vote was won by Francina Armengol with 178 votes in the 350-lower house of parliament, against 139 for the main conservative Popular Party´s candidate. It was the first parliamentary vote since inconclusive national elections on July 23 left no group with an easy path to form government.

    The .. left is emulating the National Socialist German Workers' Party.. a majority of Republicans agree with comparing the Biden regime’s political persecution of a political opponent to the political persecution of a political opponent by Nazi Germany or the USSR. As is the case with the double standard of Democrats and their propaganda organ, the nation’s socialist media, it’s perfectly acceptable for them to sling the Nazi slur along with the political ‘F-bomb (Fascism) all they want. With all kinds of examples of them doing so, here, here, here, here, and here. And of course, you’re never to compare...
  • Spanish Socialists lose seat, after expat vote count, making it harder to form government

    BARCELONA (Reuters) -Spain's Socialists have emerged with one seat fewer after counts of votes from abroad in last week's election, making it harder for them to be able to form a left-wing coalition as they would need the support of hardline Catalan separatists rather than just their abstention, analysts told Reuters on Saturday. In Sunday's close-fought election, neither the left or right blocs won enough seats to form a majority and Catalan separatist parties Esquerra Republicana de Catalunya (ERC) and Junts emerged as kingmakers, both controlling seven seats each. Esquerra is seen as likely to back Socialist Prime Minister Pedro...

    SYDNEY: Australia said on Thursday (Jun 8) it would introduce laws to parliament next week banning public displays and sales of Nazi hate symbols, citing a rise in far-right activities at home. The swastika, one of the most recognisable symbols of Nazi propaganda, and the insignia of Schutzstaffel (SS), the paramilitary wing of the Nazi party, will be outlawed to be used as flags and armbands or printed on clothes. "We've seen, very sadly, a rise in people displaying these vile symbols, which are symbols that have no place in Australia, they should be repugnant," Federal Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus told...

    It wasn’t just Spanish boaters feeling blindsided and rudely attacked this past week. Like the yachts sailing through the Straights of Gibraltar who ran into orcas with attitudes schooled in the arts of maritime destruction by a she-whale named White Gladis, the ruling Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE) – led by Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez – received a thumping of epic proportions this past Saturday. The results have stove in a section of the Socialist hull, left them rudderless, and they are bailing water madly.Spain’s ruling Socialists suffered heavy losses to opposition conservatives in Sunday’s local election, with around 95%...

    Laws in some European countries that impede migrant children from reuniting with their families or force them to leave when they turn 18 create a “huge security risk” by potentially turning young people to crime and extremism, the chief of Europe’s top human rights body said Friday. Council of Europe Secretary General Thorbjorn Jagland said such laws compel many young migrants facing uncertain futures to flee, leaving them vulnerable to exploitation from human traffickers who could push them into crime or the illicit sex trade. “This is causing a huge security risk for Europe,” Jagland said during an interview with...
