President Trump decides not to retaliate against Iran

President Trump's decision to strike Syria on April 14/15, 2018, was already a big disappointment. At the time President Trump was ill advised by General McMaster but had to learn to stand up against him. Since then the situation has changed. A couple of months ago the President stated that he did not want to send troops abroad and escalate conflicts that can be solved the diplomatic way by excerting pressure and eventually negotiate. On June 21, 2019, he showed that he does not want to inflict death on his servicemen. Hence there will not be a retaliation for the downing and distruction by Iran of the costly big US drone. So much the better. Escalatind a conflict can result in a full blown war that will make many nations suffer.#STRIKINGSYRIA

Mohamed Morsi dies in court

What an Egyptian told us at the beginning of August 2013.

An official of the U.S. Department of State of the U.S. met with El Sisi, then the commander-in-chief of the Egyptian army. America demanded that President Morsi's house arrest be lifted and that Morsi be reinstated as president. How can you demand such a thing? You're not going to risk the positive development towards a modern Egypt by demanding that the Muslim Brothers come to power, are you? The critical Egyptian said.

If Morsi was not instated as President - the US representative apparently did say - the Americans would intervene, because they had already sailed with an aircraft carrier into the Red Sea near Egypt, and American missiles could destroy sensitive facilities, airports and buildings. El-Sisi seems to have replied that Egypt itself has special missiles which do not explode until after penetrating the ship's deck. The American official is said to have replied that, if Morsi did not come to power, America (the Obama administration) would stop providing financial support to Egypt - and the Egyptian army in particular.

According to the report, El-Sisi replied that they did not need America and that they would receive the necessary support from Russia. By its very nature, this reaction was not appreciated by America, and the aircraft carrier could just observe the situation or perhaps leave.

Then came Guido Westerwelle, who was then Secretary of State of the German Federal Republic. He also insisted that Morse should not have been ousted. He had to remain in power as president because - as Westerwelle said - Morsi had been democratically elected.

Then El-Sisi replied: 'Hitler had been democratically elected also'.

Mohamed Morsi democratically elected?

Sarah Huckabee Sanders is leaving the White House. She has done an incredible job!

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders joined the Trump campaign in 2016, already before the election of Donald Trump as 45th President of the United States in November of that year.
The MSM will come up with all sorts of speculations and theories about the relations in the White House Press Corps. But Sarah Sanders did not give the media much cause. She said: "I could not have been prouder to serve my country and particularly to work for this President. He has accomplished so much in these two and a half years, (...) In the meantime I'm gonna continue to be one of the most outspoken and loyal supporters of the President and his agenda and I know he's gonna have an incredible 6 more years and get a whole lot more done...

Elections in European Union countries for the new EU Parliament.

In Germany the CDU of Angela Merkel and the SPD of Andrea Nahles both lost significantly in the European elections (Europawahl). Merkel does not show up and does not have an emotional link with most Germans. Nahles is too much involved with her own carreer so it seems. In Germany the Greens and the anti-immigrant party Alternative for Germany (Alternative für Deutschland - AfD) won.

In France Marine Le Pen with 'Rassemlement national' became the important party which made Emanuel Macron's 'En marche' second force. In Hungary Prime Minister Viktor Orban and his Fidesz won 52%.

Belgium made the anti immigrant party 'Vlaams Belang" the winner. In Austria the Austrian People's Party of Sebastian Kurz was the winner despite the well calculated attack on him because of his cooperation with the FPÖ (Freedom Party of Austria) by the release of a compromising video just before the elections which brought about the fall of Kurz's government.

It shows that in most European countries parties that are critical on immigration did win significantly. Not in Spain and not in the Netherlands.

In the Netherlands the socialist party PvdA was the winner. Many claim that it was because of the strong campaign of socialist Frans Timmermans as candidate for the position of President of the EU Commission to replace Jean-Claude Juncker.

This claim of a strong campaign is not justified. It is evident that many Dutch voters wanted a Dutch politician become President of the EU Commission. There was however no competition to Timmermans. He was the sole candidate for Juncker's post. So in that respect the voting was very unfair. Frans Timmermans did not have any competition. Had there been two or more candidates of other Dutch parties campaigning, then the election in the Netherlands would most certainly have shown a lower number of seats for the Dutch socialists.

It is because of this that the two conservative parties, VVD (Volkspartij voor Vrijheid en Democratie) and FvD (Forum voor Democratie) got enough votes for 4, respectively 3 seats in the European Parliament.

VVD is the party of Prime Minister Mark Rutte. Did his party suffer from the inadequacy of the Dutch Electoral Counci (Kiesraad) and lack of steering and criticism by the Minister of the Interior which resulted in a biased election.

Furthermore Geert Wilders' Freedom Party (Partij voor de Vrijheid=PVV) did not receive enough votes and lost the seats his party had in Brussels.

A heavy earthquake was felt in the Dutch Province Groningen. It is not the first time and the government is slow and hesitant in repairing the houses from former quakes in the area. These quakes are the result of years and years gas mining. There have been 13 quakes starting in 2003.

First quake on October 24, 2003.
