SNP: 'Israel committing atrocities'

"Brendan O’Hara, the SNP’s foreign affairs spokesperson [said:]

"'... What no country has the right to do [is] to lay siege to a civilian population, carpet bomb densely inhabited areas, drive people from their homes, erase an entire civilian infrastructure, and impose a collective punishment involving the cutting off of water, electricity, food and medicine, from civilians.

"'And no country, regardless of who they are, in the name of self-defence can kill civilians at such a pace and on such a scale that in just 16 weeks almost 30,000 are known to have died, with a further 80,000 injured' ...

"O’Hara said the international rule-based order was 'created to protect people from atrocities, not to be used as a smokescreen to hide the execution of them'..."

'Switzerland operates a peaceful foreign policy.'

A Swiss giant.

DANIEL G. JENNINGS: ‘Why, unlike other Western countries, Switzerland operates a peaceful foreign policy.

And its different ethnic, linguistic, cultural, and religious groups stay together

“ … [The] sources of Switzerland’s high level of freedom are its unique political structure and system of government.

“In particular, Switzerland has NO head of government.

“[A] Federal Council … resembles the British Cabinet, but there is NO prime minister. Thus … NO head of government …

“Instead … Switzerland’s executive authority [is split] into three parts:


“[The highest executive authority, the Federal Council consists of 7 members representing the country's major political parties and language regions. The 7 members of the Federal Council are elected by the Swiss parliament. Collectively the Council make decisions and set policy].


“[The president serves a one-year term and exists for diplomatic purposes, performing the role of head of state. The Swiss presidency is a purely ceremonial position with NO powers].


“A professional administrator …

“[Switzerland] hires a PROFESSIONAL to run its government — just as corporations do …”

“… [This] dilution of executive power is conducive to freedom …”

“[And] the Swiss Confederation has stuck together since 1848 …

“[Partly because] the Swiss Constitution affirms the sovereignty of Switzerland’s states or cantons …

“Accordingly, Switzerland has a two house parliament … [The] popularly elected National Council, and the Council of States that represents the cantons …

“This gives regions representation, which keeps the country together …

“Switzerland has much to teach the world …”

Boris Johnson wanted $1 million for interview – Tucker Carlson
“Boris Johnson is a lot sleazier, a lot lower than Vladimir Putin”

“Hoping Johnson would ‘explain his position on Ukraine’, Carlson said he soon heard back from Johnson’s staff, who revealed the former prime minister would agree to the interview – but only on one condition.

“‘Finally an adviser gets back to me and said, “He will talk to you, but it’s going to cost you a million dollars”…

“‘So you’re telling me that Boris Johnson is a lot sleazier, a lot lower than Vladimir Putin? So this whole thing is a freaking shakedown’, Carlson [said] …”
