Italy's La Repubblica newspaper reports today that the Italian government is saying “uh, no, grazie” to the Drumpf consigliere and global grifter's plans to turn a monastery near Rome into a training academy for would-be 21st-century Wehrmachters.From Quartz's reporting:
The Italian state allowed the conservative Catholic organization Dignitatis Humanae Institute (DHI) to use the building early last year. Bannon happens to be a trustee of the institute, and planned to convert the space into a “gladiator school for cultural warriors,” where students would learn philosophy, theology, history, and economics, and receive political training from the former Drumpf aide himself.
Binnen drei Jahren soll die rechtsextreme Lega, die derzeit in der Regierung ist, 49 Millionen Euro veruntreut haben. Das muss die rechtspopulistische Partei von Matteo Salvini jetzt zurückzahlen. Es geht um Zahlungen von 600.000 Euro jährlich. Bis der Schaden beglichen ist, dauert es aber lang: 81 Jahre Jahre hat die Lega Zeit, bis die gesamte Summe zurückgezahlt werden muss.Das kann man natürlich locker-flockig in kleinen Raten abbezahlen.
Hinzu kommt: Zwei Vertraute von Le Pen stehen vor Gericht. Ihnen wird vorgeworfen, sich Rückerstattungen von Wahlkampfkosten erschlichen zu haben.Tja, Rechtspopulisten sind zuallervorderst immer an sich selbst und ihrem eigenem Wohle interessiert, und nur selten an dem derjenigen, die sie eigentlich vertreten sollten und wollten, vorgeblich zumindest.
2019 schafft es Nigel Farage – der den Brexit seit Jahren gefordert hat – wieder in die Schlagzeilen. Farage soll gegen den Verhaltenskodex für EU-Abgeordnete verstoßen haben. Dazu gehört, über 500.000 Euro vom Brexit-Befürworter und Millionär Arron Banks erhalten und sich damit einen „extravaganten Lebensstil“ finanziert zu haben.Siehe oben.
Dann wäre da noch die aktuelle „Allianz“ der genannten Rechtsparteien im EU-Parlament: Die ENF. Die Fraktion wollte Spesen bei der EU abrechnen – wie alle anderen Fraktionen auch. Doch als einzige der acht Fraktionen wurde ihre Abrechnung vom Haushaltskontrollausschuss zurückgewiesen. Der Grund: Die Prüfer hielten etwa 234 Champagner-Flaschen für „nicht angemessen“.Siehe oben.
Lorenzo Orsetti (February 13, 1986 – March 18, 2019), also known as Orso and Tekoşer Piling, was an Italian anarcho-communist and antifascist from Florence who fought against ISIL with the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) in Syria.
Lorenzo was a chef by trade, sommelier and worked in different restaurants in Florence. When he lived in Florence, he became interested in the Kurdish conflict, his struggle against the Islamic State and the Rojava revolution, it was there when he met Paolo Andolina, an Italian activist and anarchist who fought against ISIS alongside YPG International. In September 2017 he traveled to Syria where received military training from the People's Protection Units (YPG). Once in Syria he struck up friendship with several Italian antifascist volunteers who were fighting there alongside Kurds.
He met several anarchist and communist militants from all over the world, but especially from Turkey, and was linked to the anarchist battalion IRPGF.
Upon finishing his military training at the YPG International Academy, he joined to the ranks of turkish TKP/ML TIKKO and then fought at the battle of Afrin against the Turkish Army and Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army's jihadists being part of the anarchist battalion Tekoşîna Anarşîst (TA, Anarchist Struggle).
Lorenzo was killed in action on Monday morning March 18, 2019 in the village of Baghouz, Syria. He was in that locality fighting in the Battle of Baghuz Fawqani against the last bastion of the Islamic State in Syria. He was attached to an Arab unit when he and his comrades were killed by ISIS jihadists in an ambush, his death was announced by ISIS media. His death was confirmed by his unit Tekoşîna Anarşîst.
When announcing his death, his comrades shared his last will in which Lorenzo explained why he had decided to travel to Syria and his ideological motives.

The WJC statement said group events to commemorate 130 years since the birth of the Nazi leader (on April 20, 1889) were scheduled across the continent, including a two-day conference by a fascist group in Bulgarian capital Sofia, a hiking and picnic trip in Ukraine, a rock concert in Italy, two conventions in Germany and a handful of gatherings in France.
The organization’s CEO, Robert Singer, made a personal appeal to Bulgarian Interior Minister Mladen Marinov, asking him to do everything in his power to cancel the Bulgarian National Union’s conference scheduled to take place in Sofia on Friday and Saturday.
The public propagation of totalitarian ideologies like fascism or communism and ethnic or racial hatred is banned in Poland, a country still grappling with the memory of Nazi occupation, and carries a penalty of up to two years behind bars.
Mussolini was captured that same evening, hiding in the back of a truck, trying to flee north disguised as a German grunt.I post pictures / meme every day about anarchy and other cool stuff.
Three days later, Colonel Valerio (war name of Walter Audisio, communist organizer and partisan) arrived to carry out his death sentence. Mussolini was shot by Valerio personally, while the fascist leadership caught with him was executed by firing squad.
The bodies were then driven to Milan and set up in the same square, Piazzale Loreto, where months earlier the fascists had murdered and exposed the bodies of 15 Italians, some of them resistance fighters and some rounded up for numbers from the ranks of "criminals" like labour organizers.
A huge crowd gathered to defile the bodies, prompting the picket of partisans to string them up and out of reach on the railing of the Piazzale Loreto gas station. This is where the famous photos of Mussolini strung up upside down come from.
The Refugee Agency UNHCR has thanked the Maltese government for ‘allowing the disembarkation and France, Germany, Portugal and Luxembourg for showing solidarity in relocating.’Such some events show us crystal clear how much egoism is preferred to empathy, in so many nations. Isn't it beautiful to have so many rela-life possibilities to spectate this outrageous egoism firsthand? I would say so, it's an opportunity we should archive for similar continental events in which these nations look for help, we could use it against them in retrospective.
They say that the beneficiaries are ‘relieved that the ordeal is over,’ but the organisation, ‘stresses the need for predictable mechanisms to ensure timely disembarkation in a safe port.’
A police spokeswoman confirmed that there were 60 adults among the group and 2 minors. A reliable source close to the initial assessments explained that there aged 6 and 1 years old respectively.
The ethnic origin of the majority of those disembarked is believed to be Nigerian.
In contrast, the real reconstruction was slow to take place. As any bureaucrat knows, one of the best ways of reducing expenditure is to invent labyrinthine procedures and make sure that it is difficult to understand and follow them. This strategy was carefully practised in L'Aquila. Time is socially necessary in post-disaster recovery.#Italy #Earthquake #disasters
“He is a patriot, another important personality on our lists,” says Meloni. He said: “I have served Italy for so many years I would like to continue doing so in Europe”.
In an interview with the Times, he stated that he shared with Fdi the ideas on “regaining sovereignty, protecting our country and the family”.
The people rescued included 12 women, one of whom is pregnant, and two children. Sea-Eye head of operations Jan Ribbeck said the captain of the ‘Alan Kurdi’ has repeatedly requested a port of safety. No one could be reached in Tripoli via phone.
Some politicians like to describe the aid organizations as the ones not cooperating with authorities. It is a fact however, that no one could be reached in Tripoli through one of the eight phone numbers and that emails have not been answered either. How is one supposed to cooperate with someone who is not communicating?” Sea-Eye spokesman Gorden Isler said.
“We clarified with the Maltese and Italian authorities that we will not enter territorial waters without permission. At the same time however, we also pointed out the approaching storm and the consumption of our supplies.”
The program of events includes panels, film screenings and discussions “between international feminist movements that, like us, find themselves having to resist the growing wave of radical and fundamentalist right [campaigns]”, says the activists’ website.
Feminist activists are expected to join NUDM in Verona from Spain, France, Germany, Poland, Croatia, the UK, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Belarus and Argentina.
“Europe is at a very scary point, with these far right and ultra-conservative movements growing in many different countries”, she continued. “We feel under attack by these toxic ideals, so the only option is to stand up and fight against this hate”.
The March 29-31 World Congress of Families aims to equip leaders, organizations and families to “affirm, celebrate, and defend the natural family as the only fundamental and sustainable unit of society.”At least they stick to their agenda.
Organized by several Italian and international pro-life organizations, the meeting will feature a wide range of speakers, including Italy’s vice premier Matteo Salvini, President Igor Dodon of Moldova, and Syriac Catholic Patriarch Ignace Younan III.
I’m nobody. I’m doing this because it’s the right thing to do. There are 10, 20, 30 people who are unknown heroes, giving 14-15 hours a day to make this a success. We also have people against us, in the media, politicians, all those forces that are against the family, women and children.
It’s split. One side of the government, which is the Lega Party, is with us, but the majority of the other side, the Five Start Movement, is against us. But the Italian people, notwithstanding tens of years of brainwashing, have common sense and that’s quite encouraging.
