In the eastern regions of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, far from the world media spotlight, Christians are reportedly being brutally slaughtered, kidnapped, brutalized, and chased away amid what local Catholic bishops have described as a “climate of genocide.” The perpetrators: Islamist jihadists and brutal militias that, according to sources ranging from officials and international organizations to watchdog groups, are receiving support from governments, military leaders, and other terror groups. The United Nations, which occupies the Congolese region with its armed and often brutal “peacekeeping” forces, has been standing on the sidelines observing the developments, according to church officials.
It's a perfect metaphor for modern times: a miracle of the most advanced technology celebrated with a presentation of the most primitive morality. Welcome to the post-Christian, neo-pagan West.
As the British literally decide the future of their nation with an upcoming vote on whether to leave the European Union, the rise of foreign robbers, rapists, and murderers from other EU nations may cause British voters to say enough is enough.
Voters in ultra-wealthy Switzerland delivered a crushing blow to the “Universal Basic Income” plan, with more than three fourths voting against the proposal to hand out huge amounts of “free” taxpayer money to every adult and child in the country.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s “hate-speech” bill is working its way through the legislative process and is expected to become law in the coming weeks. The bill, C-16, would amend current laws to make it a “hate-crime” — punishable by two years imprisonment — to speak out against transgenderism. Canada has enforced similar laws which ban “hate-speech” against homosexuals. Of the many aspects of this that are disturbing, perhaps one of the worst elements is the further stripping away of what is left of religious liberty in Canada.
Increasingly, British voters are dismissing the dire warnings of “Project Fear” — the non-stop propaganda campaign of Prime Minister David Cameron, EU and IMF officials, President Obama, the major media, etc. — and the pro-Brexit side has now taken the lead.
The world's biggest technology companies joined with the European Union to censor the Internet, announcing this week an online “Code of Conduct” that will be used to remove and prosecute “illegal” speech, while promoting government propaganda. Everything from the Christian Bible and the Islamic Koran to criticism of Islam or concerns about uncontrolled immigration could fall under the vague new censorship rules. Alongside the censorship and propaganda, the EU touted “a robust system of enforcement” to effectively apply “criminal sanctions against the individual perpetrators” of illegal speech. Critics, though, are speaking out, warning of the Orwellian implications of having an unelected and unaccountable super-state attempting to overturn centuries of protections for civil liberties that are at the core of Western civilization.
On May 12 Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff was replaced by interim President Michel Temer. Other than that, nothing has changed.
