Former Uefa president: England should be given the 2018 World Cup instead of mafia state Russia

Of course former Uefa president Johansson is right. The dictator of the mafia state called Russia, Vladimir Putin, should be denied the games due to massive corruption:

England should be given the 2018 World Cup instead of Russia, the former Uefa president Lennart Johansson has said.
Johansson, who lost the 1998 Fifa presidential election to Sepp Blatter, says the 2018 and 2022 World Cup awards should be reviewed in the light of the new corruption charges.
Johansson, 85, speaking after seven Fifa officials including two vice-presidents were arrested by police in Zurich for extradition to the USA, told the Swedish newspaper Sportbladet: “I expect they will reconsider the [World Cup] decisions. Blatter himself has said that the decision to go east wasn’t proper. I am sure the initiative will now be taken to make a new decision.
“England haven’t had it since 1966 and it’s considered ‘the motherland of football’, whatever we might think. They are worthy of the attention.”

CNN declares "war on climate change"

CNN has published this piece of garbage by Juliette Kayyem, who is said to be a "CNN National Security Analyst":

Skeptics of these global seismic shifts are not simply denying science, they are denying safety and security. Until we recognize -- with the immediacy we would if a nation launched missiles against our cities -- that climate change isn't something that can be debated, but must be mitigated or, failing that, adapted to, we will not expend the effort or resources to prepare ourselves to the one phenomenon that we know is coming: simply, the waters are rising and this is a war.

No wonder that CNN has been loosing a large part of its audience!

Victory for David Cameron: EU Commission President Juncker now opposes "ever closer Union"!

Juncker now opposes "ever closer Union"

"People feel that the EU is heading in a direction that they never signed up to. They resent the interference in our national life by what they see as unnecessary rules and regulation. And they wonder what the point of it all is. Put simply, many ask 'why can't we just have what we voted to join - a common market?"
 
David Cameron


"I'm ready to be insulted as being insufficiently democratic, but I want to be serious ... I am for secret, dark debates"

Jean-Claude Juncker


Sweet victory for David Cameron!

In a major speech to be given in London next week, EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker will admit that Cameron is right; The European Union should give up its goal of "ever closer Union".

Juncker and Cameron have met several times in secret in order to discuss Cameron´s Europe agenda. During these meetings Cameron was able to convince Juncker that the EU should return to its original concept - a primarily free trade organisation without any ambitions to grow into a federation.

Juncker and Cameron are planning to introduce their new plan for Europe at an EU summit to be held in Brussels in May. Several EU leaders have already announced their support for the Cameron-Juncker plan.

The reason for this unexpected turnaround is, according to a source who has been involved in the discussions, the growing opposition against the present German dominated model of the Union. A UK led loose free trade area is in the present circumstances much more appealing to many of the present member countries.

The new Cameron-Juncker plan would bring an additional much welcomed benefit: The number of EU bureaucrats could be reduced from the present 170,000 to about 7,000.

Fresh Gallup poll: Despite the continuing MSM propaganda Americans are not more worried about global warming

The newest Gallup poll tells it all: Despite the continuing barrage of warmist propaganda in the mainstream media, Americans are not anymore worried about global warming than in 1989, when the question was first asked!

The primary focus of the environmental movement has shifted toward long-term threats like global warming -- issues about which Americans tend to worry less than about more immediate threats like pollution. Importantly, even as global warming has received greater attention as an environmental problem from politicians and the media in recent years, Americans' worry about it is no higher now than when Gallup first asked about it in 1989.

Garry Kasparov to Western leaders: "Stop legitimizing Putin"

Garry Kasparov is - as always - spot on:


Bloomberg TV: "What do you think Obama should do now?"
Me: <pause> "Resign".
Ok, I don't expect that to happen, but my outrage is starting to overtake my grief over Boris's murder. To the question of what the leaders of the free world should do, look at what they have NOT done for years and years to constrain Putin. Treating him like one of the guys, just another leader, instead of a brutal dictator has enabled and encouraged him and is why he is invading Ukraine and why Boris is dead. It may be a little too much to say Obama, Merkel, Cameron, & Hollande have blood on their hands, but they will next time. They can have no more illusions about Putin's true nature. Stop legitimizing Putin, for by so doing, they delegitimize brave fighters like Boris.

Finally: The London Symphony Orchestra dumps Putin admirer Gergiev

Kudos to the venerable London Symphony Orchestra, which finally has decided to rid itself of criminal dictator Vladimir Putin´s friend, Valery Gergiev:

Sir Simon confirms he will take over as music director at London Symphony Orchestra in September 2017 after 12 years at Berlin Philharmonic

Simon Rattle is to join the London Symphony Orchestra, he has confirmed.
He will take over in September 2017, it was confirmed in an announcement on Tuesday morning.
Sir Simon has spent the past 12 years at the Berlin Philharmonic, widely considered the best orchestra in the world, and his contract was to run until 2018.
The management of the LSO said it was "a great day" for the orchestra.

Indeed, the dumping of Gergiev is the best thing that has happened to the LSO in many years!
