11-07-2016 15:48At times it is necessary to reveal the whole picture in order to make clear how much evil was prevented for the price of the trouble everyone found themselves confronted with. Had not days before the election, by losing temper when faced with anti-integration protesters, the German foreign minister with the statement that he could see Brussels from his office spoiled his party´s European election campaign, instead of a tired oligarch from Luxembourg there would now be a fiery fascist in its place. But Martin Schulz failed to take the powerful commissioner post and bring the manipulative zeal exercised in the Strasbourg parliament leadership to Brussels.

The community has since struggled with the political desire for independence on one hand and a hangover from the loss of vassal revenues through foreign military spending on the other. Lim said even if there was a reliable environment setting the belief that troops could not return more likely than otherwise, the occupation-era wording was as unsuitable to assert independence as a wet paint sign in a gold rush.

12-05-2016 15:42In a video broadcast censored by major commercial platforms, anti-democracy human rights activist Valentin Caspar von Grimmelshausen and pro-democracy human rights activist Om-Lai Tung have presented a device programmed to detect content forgeries deriving from government abuse of security-tagged personal data. The IFD is a software program loaded upon the device, which instructs its handler with regard to the handling of such contamination in case it is being tested as a possible solution against unresolvable side-effects resulting from fake content. Likely threats include entrapment tactics by governments along the human rights rhetoric food chain, of which the two activists said they are always wrong regardless of geopolitical orientations. Users are being encouraged to discard fakes on heuristic suggestion and hold government responsible for unsolicited production thereof. A mission statement said authenticity meant that of a thousand flowers blossoming, not a single one was allowed to be a forgery in order for the species to be called authentic.
