Finland | One-third would back Finland’s Nato membership on President’s say-so

A new poll by Lännen Media suggests that a third of Finns would support Finland’s membership in Nato if President Sauli Niinistö endorsed it.

Supporters of the Swedish People’s Party – 72 percent of them – were the most positive about Finland joining the US-led military alliance, together with Blue Reform and National Coalition Party voters.

USA | War Propaganda and the Trump/Putin Summit

The relentless hue and cry denouncing the recent Trump/Putin summit meeting largely emanates from the so-called liberal establishment, the Democratic Party, and their partners in the corporate media. The Democrats hope to reverse electoral losses by vilifying Trump while simultaneously, once again, proving to be incapable of advancing critical policies that the people need and want. Many progressive people who claim to oppose Trump and his policies, are themselves shamefully supporting NATO and more aggressive policies and sanctions against North Korea and Russia. They express support for the “professional” FBI that has been responsible for COINTELPRO attacks on the Black movement and the left and the intelligence agencies that spy on everyone and engage in assassinations, war, and regime change. Robert Mueller, the Director of the FBI for 12 years, is falsely promoted as a hero and a possible savior of a non-existent democracy.

Brazil | IN DEFENSE OF LULA AND DEMOCRACY IN BRAZIL

Brazilian Democratic State and rule of Law have been violated in a systemic and permanent way since the Coup d’état applied on President Dilma Rousseff in 2016, with an undeniable participation from the judiciary and media.

Since then, facts of major gravity threaten to establish an anti-democratic and repressive regime in Brazil, beginning with a radical politicization of Judiciary, keeping arrested or sued citizens without proved guilty or proofs for the accusation, basing judiciary decisions merely on plea bargains and magistrate “convictions”. These prisons also happened before the defense exhausted all the appealing instances and resources, on a clear violation of the Brazilian Constitution 5th Article, which guarantees the presumption of innocence until the final and conclusive condemn.
