Ukraine war: EU proposes UN-backed specialised court to probe alleged Russian war crimes | Euronews

The bloc has also proposed using Russian assets frozen under sanctions to help rebuild Ukraine.


The alledged war crimes by Russian forces in Ukraine do, certainly need to be investigated and any proven crimes require the perpetrators fully punished.

Also the Russian assets frozen under sanctions should be used to rebuild Ukraine and also to compensate Ukrainian families for the indiscrminate killing and injury to Ukrainian civilians.

Nothing should be given back to Russia.

Roe v Wade: the religious right has long influenced law in the US – here’s how abortion rights could be challenged elsewhere

Reproductive rights are threatened around the world.


So the right to have an abortion within the US has been withdrawn and in some respects reference is made to the US Constitution and Christianity, as the Constitution was constructed in 1789 by persons who invaded America in 1620 and were known as ‘The Pilgrim Fathers’ a religious sect based on strict religious principles.

In some respects The Fathers based some of The Constitution on Christian principles with the 10  Commandments having some basis.

However, abortion is not mentioned specifically in either The Constitution or the 10 Commandments, and neither is same sex marriage, LGBT or contraception, so it is down to interpretations.

Murder is mentioned in the 10 Commandments, but, abortion is not within that context as abortion is the ‘termination of a pregnancy by removal or expulsion of an embryo or fetus and murder is the unlawful killing of another human without justification or valid excuse’ by another human being and a fetus is not classed as a human being.

But, it appears that some forms of murder are authorised in The Constitution otherwise why have the 2nd Amendment, which authorises the right to bear arms ‘supporting the natural rights of self-defense and resistance to oppression, and the civic duty to act in concert in defense of the state’. However, in reality it is being used by many to justify individual use, but not in self-defence but the murder of other human beings who are causing no harm to anyone. It was also at a time when there wasn’t a reliable State force, which now there is. So, it appears Americans use what they wish to favour themselves and not America as a whole. That is the basis of anarchy.

So, abortion is not being withdrawn using The Constitution or Christian principles, so it could be down to political fervour which should not have any basis in legal standing. Judges should be impartial in legal situations, but this does not appear to be so in America. Unfortunately, Politics and religion have much to be wary of and to withdraw rights to abortion on these bases is completely wrong and shows no respect for the rights of women.

Racists murder in the USA

This is the US today under Trump, where racists feel they hold the upper hand.

A president should be there for all the people not just his own supporters, but then that is Trump.


This 27 August 2020 CBS TV video from the USA says about itself: Events Leading To Shooting That Left 2 Dead In Kenosha Played Out On Social Media Police not only didn’t arrest suspect [racist far-right murderous gunman] Kyle Rittenhouse at the scene, but at the start of the night they thanked an armed group […]

Israel has killed one child for every week in the last seven months | The Canary

Since March, Israel has reportedly shot and killed 34 children. That’s more than one murder for each week. In fact, the violence is so extreme that witnesses have claimed children are deliberate targets.


On 30 March, known as ‘Land Day‘, thousands of Palestinians peacefully camped on the Israeli-Gaza border. The intention was to remain there until 15 May, the 70th anniversary of the Nakba (Arabic for “catastrophe”). Nakba acknowledges the displacement of Palestinians after the founding of the Israeli state.

But these peaceful protests met with extreme violence from Israel. In April, a UN statement clearly stated that Gaza is under “military occupation”. And it warned against Israel’s continued use of “excessive force”.

Since then, demonstrations known as the Great Return March have continued. But the violent response of the Israeli military (IDF) hasn’t stopped. And as the Electronic Intifada reported on 24 October, witnesses say Israel intentionally targets children.

This week, some reports suggested Israel had murdered 31 children in 31 weeks:

The world has a question for the White House: When do murders matter?

With Trump’s views on journalists what is the betting that he wishes this could occur in any of the US Embassies and Consulates.

The Secular Jurist

For nearly three weeks, the world has watched President Trump downplay the disappearance and apparent slaying of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, and waited for the most powerful man in the world to act. They are waiting still.

Trump’s inconsistent and cautious remarks about the case have renewed questions about U.S. credibility and complicated the global response, emboldening adversaries such as Russia and China and discouraging robust action by traditional allies, according to analysts and former U.S. officials.

“This is a drastic break from American practice,” said Vali R. Nasr, dean of the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. “It signals a very different foreign policy that does not hold governments accountable for things that are outside normal legal or ethical parameters.”

Diabetic woman, 27, died after slipping into a coma when her benefits were stopped

When will appropriate action be taken against the DWP for these cases keep surfacing but no one is held accountable.

This strengthens my agruement that this whole process is geared to kill claimant, which is a sure fire way to reduce the benefits costs.

The DWP should be held on a charge of Murder.

Cruel Tory ruling on disabled benefits overturned in court

Yet another case of what is wrong with the welfare system. The system should be about the person claiming benefits and they should be at the centre of the process. Not as currently where finance is at the centre.

The Care Act 2014 was supposed to ensure the cared for was at the centre and the system would be there for them, but is the Act worth the paper it is written on.

The Governments whole process is ‘not fit for purpose’ as it is based on making savings without a thought for the consequences for those who are in need of care. Whatever savings they believed they would achieve have been more than spent on appeals after appeals and then the resultant events in court.

The Government are proceeding with a short-term view, when they should be proceeding on the long-term outcomes, which are more relevant.

Until the Government see sense then they will be abusing and punishing the disabled, elderly and those in severely poor health, who are reliant on the welfare benefits they are initially being denied to survive.

For many it is too late for the abusing and punishments have been so severe that they could not take anymore and they felt their only relief would be for them to take their own lives.

In effect they have been murdered by the actions of this Government and those responsible should be made to suffer the consequences, whatever they will be.

Universal Credit : In work, part time claimants sanctioned for taking holidays and …… for working!

These rules and regulation do not make sense.

It is acknowledged that to gain more from an employee holidays need to be taken as no one can really work 52 weeks per year, otherwise they will be forced to take sick leave for stress.

However, UC is ignoring this right of holiday entitlement.

The DWP is effectively grinding people on benefit into the ground and then they will have no energy to do any work.

These sanction rules need to be seriously look at before they cause death or is that the ideology of the DWP approach for if people are dead then they will not be claiming benefits.

If this is so then the DWP are in effect murdering large areas of the UK population and as such the whole department should be placed on a murder charge.

The police are supposedly outwith the political arena, so therefore when will the police act.

Telling it as it is

Unlike Zac and Sarah, Helen is a real person.

A Lone Parent working hard and doing the right thing.

This is Helen’s Story!

 Helens storyShe also says: I had a phone call last week saying that there is a new rule coming in and that even though I am working 30hours a week I have to start going to the job centre weekly again to “help” me find a second job to get me off credits altogether  if I don’t attend these meetings I will be sanctioned and penalised again! I have lost around £300 per month since I got swapped over to UC already and just feel like the government just don’t care about the stress they are putting on working families

Figures published in Nov 2105 show that 144000 claimants are now signed onto Universal Credit. 32.5 % are in work, that’s some 45827 people who are at…

TeleSur English: CIA Planned False Flag Attacks in Miami

The public have no comprehension on how far these internal and external security services will go to so that their perceived ends can be obtained. This is the ‘tip of the Iceberg’.

The terrorism within the Establishment.

Beastrabban\'s Weblog

More on the contents of the 3,000 files relating to JFK, which have recently been declassified. This is another short video from the Latin America news broadcaster, TeleSur. They reveal that the files show that the CIA was considering carrying out a series of false flag attacks in Miami and other cities in Florida, and even Washington. One of the possible tactics was to sink a Cuban refugee boat, which the Agency stated could be real or simulated, and encourage a series of murder attempts on Cuban refugees in America. This was to fool the American people into believing that there was a Communist terrorist campaign operating in America itself, backed by the Cubans, which would serve as a pretext for invading the country.

The files also reveal the various attempts the Americans made to assassinate Castro. But they also show that Cuba was not behind J.F.K’s assassination. The video…
