Bavarian President Seehofer: ‘We All Know the Migration Wave Will Continue’ – #MigrantCrisis, #Germany

Bavarian President: ‘We All Know the Migration Wave Will Continue’:

The Minister-President of Bavaria has said he expects the migrant crisis to continue and demanded Chancellor Angela Merkel do more to tackle it.

Horst Lorenz Seehofer is Chairman of the Christian Social Union (CSU), who are currently part of the coalition government led by Chancellor Merkel.

“Right now the situation is quiet. But we all know: the migration wave will continue,” Mr Seehofer told Welt N24.

“The cleanest way to solve it would be to help the refugees in their home countries. Or, at the very least, we have to carry out checks at the EU’s external borders in order to clarify who qualifies for protection and who does not.”

The artwork also includes the phrase ‘Ius Soli No’ beneath the vessel – a reference to the proposed nationality law which would grant Italian citizenship to second generation immigrants born in the country.

CIA Chief Warns: WikiLeaks Is Plotting To “Take Down America Any Way They Can”

CIA Chief Warns: WikiLeaks Is Plotting To “Take Down America Any Way They Can”:

CIA Director Mike Pompeo remains inconsolably hostile toward whistleblower organization WikiLeaks, insisting they are a “non-state hostile intelligence service” and are plotting to “take down America any way they can and find any willing partner to achieve that end.

Hostility to WikiLeaks has been a mainstay in the US government, as every administration faces the prospect of their covert misdeeds becoming a matter of public record, to their general embarrassment albeit rarely to the end of any meaningful reform.

President Trump had a positive attitude toward WikiLeaks during last year’s campaign, declaring “I love WikiLeaks.”

Botched US Drone Strike Kills 15 Afghan Police:

The US has tried to bolster the Afghan government in Helmand Province with air support in their fighting against the Taliban, but the support appears to have gone horribly wrong today, as a US drone attacked and killed at least 15 Afghan police.

The airstrike was targeting what the US thought was a Taliban compound in Helmand’s Gereshk District, but was actually a site used by Afghan security forces to meet and plan operations against the Taliban. A number were inside when the US attacked.

State Dept: Israeli Settlements, Lack of Hope Drive Palestinian Violence

State Dept: Israeli Settlements, Lack of Hope Drive Palestinian Violence:

The US State Department’s annual terror report offers a surprising amount of criticism of Israel, uncharacteristic for the Trump Administration, which has made a point of being outspokenly favorable toward the Israeli government from day one.

The report detailed several lone-offender attacks by Palestinians against Israelis, as it does every year. But the report went a lot further, saying that Israeli government policy toward the Palestinians was in no small part driving the violence.

Stephen Lendman: US threatening every nation worldwide

US threatening every nation worldwide: Journalist:

The American Congress’ bill to impose new sanctions against Russia, Iran and North Korea is “horrendous” because it is the United States that is threatening national security of other nations not those three countries, says Stephen Lendman.

“Russia threatens nobody, Iran threatens nobody, North Korea threatens nobody [but] America threatens everybody,” the author and journalist told Press TV on Sunday.

US Republicans and Democrats have agreed to impose new sanctions against Russia and Iran as well as North Korea. The House of Representatives will vote Tuesday on a package of sanctions covering Iran, North Korea and Russia.

Schumer Comes Clean: Democrats – Not Russia – Are To Blame For Hillary’s Loss

Schumer Comes Clean: Democrats – Not Russia – Are To Blame For Hillary’s Loss:

In a somewhat shockingly frank interview with The Washington Post, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says that Democrats, not Russia, are to blame for Hillary Clinton’s loss to President Trump.

When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things – [James] Comey, Russia – you blame yourself.

“So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that.”

The reason for Schumer’s sudden bout of honesty appears to be a rebranding effort for The Democrats. As The Hill reports,
