Christian Fundamentalists Demand Spiritual Lebensraum Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Christian Fundamentalists Demand Spiritual Lebensraum: [patheos.com] “It was a tough decision to use the term lebensraum since the National Socialist Workers Party in Germany kinda ran it into the ground in the 1930′s and 1940′s,” stated Chancellor of the ACFC, Herman Canard. “Those guys used lebensraum to describe the need for the German people to seize land in the east for living space. We’re using the word to describe how we Christians need to create socio-economic systems in America that discriminate against homosexuals. That’s what we mean by spiritual.”

The ACFC has stated that secular-Obamaism has been pushing Christianity onto “reservations of belief.” Only on these geographically limited areas can God-fearing believers harass the gays.

“My fifteen year old son thinks he’s gay, and I give him a ton of crap for that,” explained ACFC member Bobby Beauregard. “I send him out of the house into “man’s world” and all the good work I did at home gets undone. It really makes you think.”

Chiapas: 18 years since the Acteal massacre | SIPAZ Blog Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Chiapas: 18 years since the Acteal massacre | SIPAZ Blog: For his part, the director of the Fray Bartolom� de las Casas Center for Human Rights (CDHFBC), Pedro Faro Navarro, denounced that in the Acteal case, “there has been no justice, and the wall of impunity persists.” He added that “state officials, including Ernesto Zedillo, clearly knew what was happening in Chenalh�, in terms of the precedents and the moment at which the massacre was happening, due to reports from the Mexican Army which had been deployed in the Highlands region, thus confirming the direct participation of the Mexican State in the Acteal massacre. The national context shows us that justice will not come from above, nor from those in power or those who administer the State, let alone the existing power-groups or anyone who manipulates and corrupts [the people], who are the owners of the justice system in Mexico.” He noted that for this reason, the Las Abejas Civil Society “is building through its for a another justice,” such that “one possible conclusion is that the future of the people who have been degraded and discriminated against will need no justice from the State.”

US military to expand global operations in 2016 - World Socialist Web Site Aboriginal News Group Newswire

US military to expand global operations in 2016 - World Socialist Web Site: The imperialist powers are determined to make 2016 an even bloodier and more dangerous year. Germany and Japan are openly remilitarizing, as their governments seek to whitewash and rationalize the crimes of the World War II era. All of the imperialist powers have seized on the terror attacks in Paris and San Bernardino to place their populations and economies on a war footing.

The most dangerous factor is the US drive for global domination. The United States has its hands in virtually every country, employing drone assassinations, Special Forces operations and a network of military bases and agreements aimed at establishing unchallenged military domination over the planet, along with cyberspace and outer space.

More plans are afoot. Washington is preparing to expand its global basing system through the addition of a “larger network envisioned by the Pentagon,” which will include at least four new Special Forces hubs and numerous new “spoke” bases, according to a New York Times article published Monday.

United Nations News Centre - New bill in Finland threatens Sami peoples’ right to traditional lands, livelihoods, UN expert warns Aboriginal News Group Newswire

United Nations News Centre - New bill in Finland threatens Sami peoples’ right to traditional lands, livelihoods, UN expert warns: “The new draft bill presented to the Finnish Parliament earlier this month no longer contains valuable safeguards for the Sami people's rights to traditional livelihoods, lands, territories and resources, which had been included in the previous draft approved in 2014,” warned the UN Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples, Victoria Tauli-Corpuz.

“I hope that the draft law will consider that the Sami Parliament and the Skolt Sami Village Council have had limited opportunities to take part in this process which is contrary to article 19 of the Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which Finland has endorsed,” she said.

According to the new bill, most of the Sami Homeland will be transferred to a new State-owned company that has yet to be established, according to the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). This new company will have the responsibility for all logging carried out on State-owned lands in Finland, including in the Sami Homeland region.

Erdogan cites Hitler’s Germany as example of effective presidential system > Strategic-Culture.org - Strategic Culture Foundation Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Erdogan cites Hitler’s Germany as example of effective presidential system > Strategic-Culture.org - Strategic Culture Foundation: Both Erdogan and Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu have said that Ankara needs to move away from its current parliamentary system, to ensure that government becomes more streamlined.
“What is right for Turkey is to adopt the presidential system in line with the [democratic] spirit. This system will not evolve into dictatorship but if we do not have this spirit, even the parliamentary system can turn into this [dictatorship],” Davutoglu said in an interview with NTV, as reported by the Hurriyet Daily News.

The ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), who won an absolute majority in the November’s elections, are looking to adopt a new Turkish constitution to facilitate the move toward a presidential system. Opposition parties have condemned the move, saying it would give Erdogan too much power and would make it easier for him to create one-man rule.

“[Erdogan] wants a presidential system in Turkey. He did not change his mind after the last election. I think he will force that, somehow. And I think this is the last exit before the full dictatorship for Turkey,”Ceyda Karan, an opposition journalist at Cumhuriyet newspaper, told RT.
