Justice has been done

Re: confirming Kavanaugh.

Let us pray the new conservative majority will change the direction of the U.S. Supreme Court back towards justice and sanity, including overturning Roe vs. Wade and returning it to the states.

And may the good Americans punish the bad ones at the ballot box in the upcoming midterms, for having dragged a good man’s name through the mud, and the nation through this divisive circus.

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow!

Amen.

Why did the Europeans pick a high-ranking Chinese Communist Party member to lead Interpol?

Update: I was in error in my assumption in my post below about Interpol; for some reason, I had thought it was mostly European rather than simply international. See my most recent post here.

I found that out from this story about him going missing:

The president of Interpol was taken away for questioning by ‘discipline authorities’ in China’s ruling Communist Party, a Hong Kong newspaper has reported.

Meng Hongwei was placed under investigation in his native China as soon as he arrived in the country last week, the South China Morning Post reported today.

An Interpol spokesman says the international law enforcement agency is aware of the Post’s story, but would not comment on it or say if Chinese authorities had detained the 64-year-old Meng.

Meng’s wife says she has not heard from him since he left Lyon, France, where Interpol is headquartered, at the end of September.

The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, the Communist Party’s secretive internal investigation agency, had no announcements on its website about Meng and could not be reached for comment.

French police launched an investigation after the director of international police agency Interpol vanished last month.

Interpol said it was aware of reports of the ‘alleged disappearance’ of its president and said the issue was a matter for France and China.

In a statement, it said: ‘This is a matter for the relevant authorities in both France and China.’

The organisation added that the secretary general, not Meng, was responsible for the day-to-day running of Interpol.

Meng became the first Chinese citizen to be elected as president of Interpol in November 2016 when he replaced French police officer Mireille Ballestrazzi. Meng’s term is due to run until 2020.

At the time, his appointment raised fears among human rights organisations, such as Amnesty International, that he would be used by the Chinese Government to pursue political dissidents who fled the country.

In 2014, China worked through Interpol to issue notices for 100 Chinese corruption suspects who fled abroad.

Meng has held many senior positions in Chinese Government since entering politics in 1972.

The 64-year-old served as vice minister of Public Security in China, vice chairman of the national narcotics control commission and director of the National Counter-Terrorism Office for China.

I couldn’t care less that he’s missing; why the hell was a ChiCom chosen to head up Europe’s international police organization?

And why have European citizens not raised a stink about this?

I hope he stays missing, and that maybe a non-Communist, European individual might be chosen next to head up Interpol, as you’d think would be the best choice…

Sheesh. Their rulers really do have nothing but contempt and hate for their own people…

Know the Work Rules

 

Smart Israelis; a good first step

Cash or custody: Israel kicks off deportation of African migrants

TEL AVIV (Reuters) – Israel has started handing out notices to 20,000 male African migrants giving them two months to leave the country or risk being thrown in jail.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government is offering the migrants, most of whom are from Sudan and Eritrea, $3,500 and a plane ticket to what it says is a safe destination in another country in sub-Saharan Africa.

[…]

The right-wing government is under pressure from its nationalist voter base to expel the migrants

[…]

The government says the migrants are “infiltrators” looking for work rather than asylum

[…]

The first eviction notices were handed out on Sunday and job advertisements for immigration inspectors to implement the deportation plan have been posted on government websites.

[…]

The deportation notices do not name the country migrants will be flown to but Netanyahu has said it will be a safe destination. Rights groups have named Uganda and Rwanda as possible host countries.

In a poor neighbourhood in the south of Tel Aviv that has attracted thousands of African migrants, shops are dotted with signs in Tigrinya and other African languages while abandoned warehouses have been converted into churches.

“I came to Israel to save my life,” said Eritrean Afoworki Kidane, sitting on a street bench.

He said he would rather go to jail than take the cash and plane ticket on offer to leave the country that has been his home for nine years.

That is the one weakness in the plan; jail in a First World country is superior to freedom in a shithole…

Still, a good start…

Interior Minister Aryeh Deri said Israel’s first obligation was to its own citizens, rather than the migrants.

“They are not numbers, they are people, they are human and I am full of compassion and mercy,” Deri told Army Radio. “But the small state of Israel cannot contain such a vast number of illegal infiltrators.”

Hear, hear!

 

Either accusers should lose anonymity or the accused should also have it (unless/until convicted)

Yep.

 

He fenced the nations

 
 

God bless Viktor Orbán!
