Recent comments online by the San Francisco Republican Party's Executive Director, Clint Griess, who serves concurrently as Secretary as well, are bizarre - a denial of reality, a poor excuse for a failed March Primary candidate, and expose the critical lack of innovative and technological thought.
Has a global pandemic killing thousands really come down to whether you can eat a scotch egg with a pint? Well, you would think so if you read the MSM press this morning and watched the lamestream broadcasters.
Nicola Sturgeon’s speech to her virtual party conference today was brimming with confidence and a progressive policy agenda which very much sounded like the starting pistol for the May Scottish elections next year and the challenge of IndyRef2. Why shouldn’t she be confident?
We all know Father Christmas and his American colleague Santa Claus. Less well-known are the Slavic character Ded Moroz and the catholic Saint Nicholas who do as their Anglo-Saxon companions do: bring presents to children around Christmas time. Even lesser-known are Santa's pagan companions.
Just a few months before the national elections, the main opposition party in The Netherlands, Forum for Democracy, imploded. Its political leader Thierry Baudet is accused of having suggested corona is a Jewish conspiracy "to take away our freedom and to create a New World Order".
There was a pleasant surprise on Monday when we learnt that spectators were to be allowed back into sporting events in England, but the placing of around 98% of the country into the toughest two ’tiers’ has greatly dampened enthusiasm.
A dangerous clown who has spent most of the year delaying and dithering in Downing Street.
If US presidents genuinely have independent executive power, then, in theory, the presumed incoming Joe Biden administration could radically change the dynamic with China in order to calm bilateral tensions.
We have seen San Francisco district city council supervisor races attract over a million dollars in campaign contributions, as the stakes are quite high, for both governance of the district and participation on the all-important city council board in city hall. There is a saying, as San Francisco goes, so goes the nation.
Is the SNP evolving into a latter-day version of the right-wing New Labour party which obliterated so many Labour principles that it became indistinguishable from the Tories on all the major issues throughout the 1990’s and up to Corbyn’s reign in 2015?
Germany and Russia are not the only ones to have bilateral relations within the EU, which other countries sometimes get suspicious of. Austria has also historically negotiated special relations with Moscow. Vienna sees itself as a mediator without denying its ties to the West.
Boris Johnson didn’t just have problems with communicating via his Zoom call yesterday. He had a major problem connecting with the public.
The next US administration is taking shape with President-elect Joe Biden naming his picks to top cabinet posts and national security. It heralds a return to "normal" US imperialism and militarism. That is something to dread not celebrate, as American and European media would have us believe.
Anyone surprised by BoJo’s decision to condone shameful bullying at the heart of his government and order a “square” of defence be formed “around the prittster” after he decided to keep Priti Patel in his cabinet despite her being found guilty of breaching the Ministerial Code and bullying, has plainly been sleeping over the past eleven months.
Yesterday I broke the law! Or did I? I decided for the good of my ‘mental health’ that I needed a long walk and an even longer ‘think’ so I drove to the Beautiful Stowe Gardens and went walking and contemplating in this beautiful National Trust property.
Britain’s sorry excuse for a leader, Boris Johnson, has proudly announced the biggest spending spree on the nation’s military in 30 years. This comes as the country is reeling from disease, a healthcare crisis and economic misery for millions of workers.
