“What is your relationship with God, and how do you pray?”

— Of course Trump dodges the question, because he does not pray at all, as he is not a religious person.

This is golden!

From Vermont's Republican Party rule book: "The state committee will not support or promote any candidate for elective office who [...] is a convicted felon."

What a great rule, Vermont!

Using US weapons, Israel bombs a UN school in Gaza killing 40.

Their excuse? 9 of them were terrorists.

Imagine if your local police got a tip about 9 criminals at you local school, and they decided to solve the problem by bombing the school killing 40 people. Would any sane person accept that?

This is a clear violation of the principle of proportionality and therefore a violation of international law.

Again.

Biden is in Normandy today to celebrate the 80-year anniversary of D-Day.

Thank you to the American voters for sending someone who respects the fallen this time.

Wait… WHAT??!?!?!?

Trump is now publicly fantasising about getting reelected and throwing the president's wife in jail, as revenge for 12 jurors in Manhattan finding Trump guilty of a crime.

I am truly lost for words. As a political campaign message, this makes zero sense.

Clearly, my field of political analysis does not suffice. If a psychologist or a doctor has an analysis of these ramblings of a madman, I am all ears.

I see many British posts criticising the publicly funded National Healthcare System (NHS), and I fully understand how hospitals etc. are crucial to any society.

What I do not get is, why the people of Britain pay a basic income tax of just 20 percent, and then still seem surprised there is not enough money to finance proper healthcare. Just for comparison, the lowest income tax rate in Denmark is 37 percent, with many citizens paying up to 53 percent.

I am genuinely interested in knowing more.

Here is a news story I did not anticipate:

To ruin Russian recruitment of foreign mercenaries, Ukrainian special forces have launched a special military operation in Syria.

Lieutenant General Budanov really is playing all the pieces of the 3D chessboard.

The Danish national tv debate preparing Danish voters for the European Parliamentary election coming up this Sunday, is a shouting match between party leaders — who are not even EU Parliament candidates — accusing each other of wanting to bring more refugees into the EU.

I sincerely hope other EU countries are presenting more inspiring debates to European voters.

Finally it looks like the new Kharkiv offensive is beginning to fall apart for Putin. According to multiple reports, a large number of Russian soldiers have surrendered to the Ukrainian marines of the 36th brigade in Vovchansk.

Recently, I saw a video of a Russian soldier criticizing his orders in strong terms, because dozens of his comrades had been killed.

This is the problem with Putin’s meat assaults — humans have a way of not wanting to die.

On May 6th, Russia threatened to attack “UK military facilities” if Ukraine was allowed to use British weapons against Russian military targets.

It has been a month… so where are the Russian attacks Sergey Lavrov?

Oh, that is right… UK is a member of NATO, and Russia — the second strongest army in Ukraine — is a bit busy at the moment.

— Yet another empty threat from the Kremlin clowns.

With just 0.11 percent of GDP support for Ukraine, Switzerland is the very least supportive country in all of Europe.

Fortunately, the Swiss parliament finally voted yes to a new aid package worth an impressive EUR 5.6 billion, and I was looking forward to writing about that. But that aid package has now been turned down by the Swiss upper house.

Measured per capita, Switzerland is the 5th richest country in Europe — richer than Norway.

While many reputable companies have pulled out of Russia long ago, American language learning company Duolingo has continued its business in Russia, reveals TASS.

In April, the company was told to censor its app, so Russians can no longer see ANY reference to the existence of #LGBT persons, and instead of ending its business in Russia, the company chose to help the dystopian regime and comply, writes Latvian-based newsmedia Meduza.

Erasing a culture… for rubles.

Bundeskanzler Olaf Scholz: Using German weapons to bomb Russian military positions inside Russia is not an escalation.

Also Olaf Scholz: Using Taurus missiles to bomb Russian military positions inside Ukraine is an escalation.

It makes no sense at all.

Elon Musk officially turns his social medium X into a porn site.

I still remember the day when Twitter was an essential tool for many professionals, but does anyone seriously think ANY politician, media person, or CEO will open X on the go and risk being seen viewing pornographic material in public?

Man, this is a desperate move.

This exchange speaks volumes. It is from journalist Bob Woodward’s interview with Trump:

Trump: “I have a reputation for not being willing to apologize. It’s wrong. I will apologize if I am wrong. “

Woodward: “When is the last time you apologized?”

Trump: “Oh, I don’t know. But I think over a period I would apologize. But here’s the thing: I’m never wrong.”

I am impressed the world survived the 2016 election of this man.

@Grant_M I agree, but I am afraid sentencing does not work that way. Precedence cases to a wide extent limit what the punishment will be. Incarceration is a possibility though, so there is hope.

The right wing war against drag performers just took a hard turn:

In 2022, right wing blogger Summer Bushnell edited a video of drag performer Eric Posey’s performance, blurring parts of his outfit to support her completely false claim, that he was exposing his genitals to an audience including children.

That lie just cost her USD 1.1 million.

“I never said lock her up”, says Donald Trump, now that he himself is potentially facing prison time.

Obviously false, and of course MSNBC rolls the tape of all the many times Trump said he would throw both Hillary and Biden in jail.

A Russian missile depot in Shebekino is wondering if attacking Kharkiv was amongst Putin’s better ideas.

Every night, Russian state tv sends out more nuclear threats to more countries. This time they claim, they will erase Poland from the map.

The problem for Russia is, they have been threatening the world with nuclear war every night for 830 days, and it is simply laughable at this point.

The reason they will never choose nuclear war is, NATO has 800 intercontinental ballistic missiles pointed at them.

But they are losing in Ukraine, and all Putin can offer is this nightly theater on state tv.

For the first time in history, Mexico has elected a female president. Claudia Sheinbaum has been the governor of Mexico City until 2023, she is from a Jewish family but secular, and tough on crime.

Congratulations Mexico! 🇲🇽

If Trump is sentenced to prison on July 11, I hope Melania leaves him, so we get the divorce speech:

“Crooked Melania has left me, and I did nothing wrong with Stormy Daniels, but the radical left democrats have turned her against me. It was a perfect marriage, but it is a rigged divorce, and all the experts say its rigged. I call it a Bidenvorce — it is not a divorce, it is a Bidenvorce. And I just called Stormy, and it was a perfect phone call, but she hung up on me…”

etc., etc.
