Here's something interesting from Germany's Der Spiegel (in German). It is a report about a (Leftist) German filmmaker Wilfried Huismann, who thinks he has evidence that Castro ordered the assassination of JFK:

His documentary "Rendezvous mit dem Tod" revolves around the 6 days in September 1963 that Oswald spent in Mexico City. It took Huisman five years to make the film, with extensive research in Mexico and the US. His first hint was an interview with the retired FBI-Agent James Hosty, who was one of the guys that interrogated Oswald after the assassination. He said Oswald was very arrogant and only showed weakness when asked what he did in Mexico City. Huismann has more: a G2 agent from Cuba, who says "we did it"; witnesses and evidence that Oswald had intensive contact with people of the Cuban embassy in Mexico.

An active member of the Russian FSB told Huismann that the KGB notified the Cubans about Oswald after he was in the Soviet Union, and the Cubans contacted Oswald shortly after that. Another Witness, the retired FBI agent Laurence Keenan, was in Mexico in 1963 and says he felt like he found "Pandora's box" there, but was personally ordered back to Washington by Edgar Hoover after only three days.

The German ARD and the Japanese NHK sponsored the film, and also paid a Mexican journalist for about a year to investigate in Mexico. The film will be aired on January the 6th.



More Leftist censorship: There is a site called Article Destination that looked to me like it might be what it claims to be -- a useful way of circulating articles. So I put up a few of my articles on their site. But they showed their true colours when I submitted this rigorously factual and fully referenced article to them. They deleted it! Identifying Nazism with the Left is just too much of course and MUST be censored. The site where I have the article posted gets over 1,000 hits a day and has a high Google ranking so the censorship attempt will fortunately fail.

Putin caves in: "Russia is restoring full gas deliveries to European states, effectively easing a blockade on Ukraine, but the Kremlin's row with its ex-Soviet neighbour that triggered the sanction is still bubbling. Russia accused Kiev of illegally tapping off gas from the pipeline crossing its territory to Europe after the Russian gas monopoly Gazprom cut its feed for Ukraine on Sunday. States from Serbia to Germany complained of supply cuts and Washington warned Moscow against using energy as a political tool. In agreeing yesterday to restore pumping close to normal levels, Moscow bowed to Western pressure and acknowledged, albeit reluctantly and with some frustration, that it could not fully control and channel gas supplies crossing Ukraine. "With the aim of preventing a possible energy crisis, caused by Ukraine illegally taking gas, Gazprom has taken the decision to deliver additional gas into the gas transport system of Ukraine," the company said in a statement".

There is a page here by some highly educated but ignorant Dutchman who claims to show that Europe is more civilized than the USA. The major part of his spiel is an attempt to specify what is necessary for a democracy to function. And what a fool he makes of himself! He sees a judicially enforceable written constitition as necessary and a separation of the legislature and the administration as necessary. Yet I live in a country (Australia) where there is NO separation of the administration and the legislature. So is Australia not democratic? Only an arrogant fool of a Dutchman would say so. And it is not only Australia he ignores. Canada, New Zealand and many other British-influenced countries have similar systems. And the world's most venerable democracy (Britain) has no written or judicially enforceable constitution at all. Ultimately, the British politicians can do what they like. So is Britain not democratic? The irony is of course that the country the ignoramus is trying to criticize (the USA) does have all the desired characteristics he lists. I guess it is all testimony to how totally inadequate to an understanding of the world a European education is.

Not postmodern enough? "They can't judge a book without its cover. Publishers and agents have rejected two Booker prize-winning novels submitted as works by aspiring authors. One of the books considered unworthy by the publishing industry was by V S Naipaul, one of Britain's greatest living writers, who won the Nobel prize for literature. The exercise by The Sunday Times draws attention to concerns that the industry has become incapable of spotting genuine literary talent. Typed manuscripts of the opening chapters of Naipaul's In a Free State and a second novel, Holiday, by Stanley Middleton, were sent to 20 publishers and agents. None appears to have recognised them as Booker prizewinners from the 1970s that were lauded as British novel writing at its best. Of the 21 replies, all but one were rejections".

New Orleans corruption: "Some members of the governor's staff will return from the three-day holiday on Tuesday to newly renovated offices at the State Capitol. Shortly after the two hurricanes, Gov. Kathleen Blanco decided to renovate some of her staff's offices. At the time of her decision, Blanco also was hinting at deep budget cuts to state programs and the possibility of laying off 20 percent of the state workforce. The project cost $564,838".

Hollywood parasites: "Apparently, Wayne Newton and Robin Williams are having a hard time lining up Hollywood "talent" to go to Iraq to entertain the troops -- the troops, mind you, that provide them with the freedom to make huge sums of money for engaging in a pleasant occupation under pleasant conditions (resulting, all too often, in a trashy or silly product).... Now, celebrities are afraid, so it seems, that deigning to entertain the troops will be construed as an endorsement of the war, and -- heavens! -- that wouldn't do at all. Might be bad for the career, or result in some odd glances at the fashionable cocktail parties. Barbara Streisand, Alec Baldwin and all the rest of the summer soldiers and sunshine patriots needn't waste any of our time suggesting that they "support" the troops, if not the President. Obviously, they don't".

Practically all policies advocated by the Left create poverty. Leftists get the government to waste vast slabs of the country's labour-force on bureaucracy and paperwork and so load the burden of providing most useful goods and services onto fewer and fewer people. So fewer useful goods and services are produced to go around. That is no accident. The Left love the poor. The Left need the poor so that they can feel good by patronizing and "helping" them. So they do their best to create as many poor people as possible.

The Big Lie of the late 20th century was that Nazism was Rightist. It was in fact typical of the Leftism of its day. It was only to the Right of Stalin's Communism. The very word "Nazi" is a German abbreviation for "National Socialist" (Nationalsozialistisch)
