Martin Neumaier, Germany's politician, filmed himself licking public toilets of a railway station, as confirmed by the local media reports.

The Free Democratic Party (FDP) candidate for the district of Ostalb was seen putting his face inside the toilet and also licking toiletries including a brush present there, according to Times Now.

He also shared disturbing and explicit videos of himself doing sexual acts online.

In one clip, Neumaier was seen singing the Nazi-era German national anthem along with "m*********** rectally with a s** toy." Moreover, several videos of him have surfaced on social media and gone viral.

Comment: This comes just a month after a municipal Councillor, and head of youth and children's services, in Spain was forced to resign after footage emerged showing him eating his own excrement for sexual gratification.


China hopes to divide the West, and it knows where the weakest link lies

China hopes to divide the West, and it knows where the weakest link lies Bejing knows the EU's leading states don't want to break off relations, and it's placing its bets on them holding firm

"Even paranoids have real enemies," is a famous aphorism attributed to a prominent political figure of the past. What it means is that even the habit of suspecting everyone around you of a conspiracy is no guarantee that such suspicions are unfounded. So the reaction of British and American observers to Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit to France, Hungary and Serbia is, in principle, justified.

The trip itself took place last week - and a feature of it was the warm welcome given to the Chinese leader in all three European countries. There is a reason for the nervous reactions of the US and Britain: China is indeed placing one of its bets on dividing the West. More specifically, it is using France, Germany and several other EU states as the "weak link" in the broad Western coalition aimed at preventing the collapse of its hegemony in world affairs.

Such a split will not be fatal for the US position in Western Europe - after all, the Americans have a firm grip on their junior allies. But a close relationship between China and part of continental Europe could cause some problems for US diplomacy, which is already "frayed" by numerous gaps in its positions.

Comment: It is helpful to have a third opinion on EU-China relationships apart from what is usually heard from either the Washington and the European officialdom in Brussels.

Georgia accuses NATO countries of trying to orchestrate coup

The participation of foreign officials in an anti-government rally is unacceptable, the parliament speaker said

The participation of politicians from NATO countries in anti-government rallies in Tbilisi is a hostile step aimed at overthrowing the Georgian government, parliamentary chairman Shalva Papuashvili has said.

The statement comes as foreign ministers from Iceland, Lithuania and Estonia took part in a rally against the recently passed 'foreign agents' bill on Wednesday. The ministers, who arrived in Tbilisi to discuss the controversial law with the country's government, were later seen addressing a crowd of protesters at the parliament building.

Georgia might be punished for passing the "foreign agents" law

Members of the Georgian government could face sanctions for "undermining democracy," a senior US diplomat said on Tuesday, after the parliament in Tbilisi approved a foreign agents law that Washington has opposed.

Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs James O'Brien arrived in Tbilisi for meetings with both Prime Minister Irakli Kobakhidze and members of the opposition, only to find that the Georgian legislature passed the Law on Transparency of Foreign Influence.

"I was very clear that there would be consequences if the law were implemented as it now stands," O'Brien told reporters on Tuesday evening. "[Kobakhidze] has referred to this as coercion, but it's not. Georgia is attempting to join the EU and NATO. Those organizations have certain standards and certain referees that say what the rules are, and we simply want Georgia to continue to match those standards rather than to deviate," he added.

If the law goes forward, "and there's undermining of democracy here and there's violence against peaceful protesters - peaceful protesters! - then we will see restrictions coming from the US," O'Brien added, noting that they would be financial or travel sanctions "on the individuals responsible for those actions and their families."

The US diplomat said he does not want this to happen, but for Georgia "to have a continued peaceful path toward the EU and NATO with a robust democracy."

Georgia's "foreign agent" law would require non-profit organizations, media outlets and individuals with more than 20% foreign funding to register as entities "promoting the interests of a foreign power" and disclose their income and donors or face a fine of up to $9,500. It does not provide for criminal prosecutions, unlike the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) enacted by the US in the 1930s.

This is Tbilisi's second attempt to pass the law. Last spring, the government backed down after violent demonstrations outside the parliament and threats from the US and the EU. Opposition activists have been protesting against what they dubbed the "Russian law" again, clashing with police in downtown Tbilisi on several occasions this month. During Tuesday's vote, several dozen lawmakers got into a fistfight on the parliament floor as well.

The falling out between the US and Georgia has caught the attention of Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, who sought to clarify what O'Brien may have meant.

"Is the problem that the Georgian law is much milder than the American law?" she posted on her Telegram account. "Why should Georgia or any other country conform to other people's values? Don't the 'values' of the US include non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries?"

Investments promised by the US and its allies are nothing but bait, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Galuzin has warned

The US and its allies promise Central Asian governments benefits to entice cooperation, but the West will be quick to topple them once they are no longer of use, a senior Russian diplomat has said.

Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Galuzin issued the warning in a speech at an event on Central Asian politics hosted by the Valdai Discussion Club in Ufa, Russia on Tuesday.

According to him, the West wants "to reformat" the region for itself, "to call dibs on its natural resources, impose control on transport corridors that run through it, and to turn Central Asia into a staging ground for threats against Russian security."

Comment: On occasions, there have been articles about the US having lost the great game of Central Asia, as in The Great Game in central Asia is over - and America lost (Apr 2021). However a look at the headlines over the last 10 years, can not confirm that the US and allies have accepted defeat and ceased their attempts to destabilize and if possible make a bit of money in the process.

Hasbara fail: Israeli govt admits it 'astroturfed' Eurovision vote but lost anyway

Israeli officials hyped their country's 5th place Eurovision finish as proof of quiet global grassroots support for their assault on Gaza. Now, they admit they manipulated the results through an international propaganda blitz.

On May 11, Israeli candidate Eden Golan took home 5th place at the Eurovision contest in Malmo, Sweden. The decision to allow the Israeli singer to participate sparked heated protests and calls to boycott the event. Against the rancorous backdrop, many were surprised by Golan's apparent success, which was driven almost entirely to votes by individual audience members. Israeli media and government officials quickly seized on the news as proof that deep down, Europeans secretly support Israel's military rampage in Gaza.

While the mere 52 points that judges awarded Golan would have left her in 12th place, viewers managed to propel the Israeli singer into 5th place by awarding her an astonishing 323 points via televoting. In the end, Golan received the maximum possible 12 points from audiences in Australia, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, San Marino, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom, and received the second-highest possible 10 points from Albania, Austria, Cyprus, Czechia, Moldova, Slovenia, and Ireland.

Damage being assessed as IDF confirms Hezbollah drone hit sensitive military site

Terror group claims to target missile-detecting balloon in deepest strike in Israel amid war; in response, air force attacks weapon manufacturing plant in northeastern Lebanon

Hezbollah managed to hit a sensitive military facility in the Lower Galilee with an explosive drone on Wednesday evening, the Israel Defense Forces confirmed Thursday, as fighter jets responded by striking targets belonging to the terror group in northeastern Lebanon.

In the attack on Wednesday, Hezbollah claimed to have launched explosive-laden drones at an Israeli Air Force base from which a giant missile-detecting blimp, known as Sky Dew, is operated.

The base is located near Golani Junction, some 35 kilometers (21 miles) from the Lebanon border.

Comment: Hezbollah, under its leader, Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah, has carefully calibrated its responses to the Israeli assault on Gaza, avoiding escalation into an all-out second front. It is creating enough concern to keep at least a third of the IDF occupied in the north, as well as by keeping thousands of illegal Israeli settlers out of the region, who fled their homes in the early days of the conflict. The loss of productivity and the cost of supporting this internally displaced population is not well-publicized, but is still quietly crippling the Israeli economy.

Who tried to pull the rug on Netanyahu, and why?

© public domainIsraeli Protest
The young American generation of today says: We will not identify with suspect genocidal tendencies against an indigenous people.

The core issues at the heart of release of hostages held in Gaza were two: A complete cessation to the war and full withdrawal of all Israeli forces.

Netanyahu's position was that whatever the hostage outcome, the IDF would return to Gaza and that the war there might continue for ten years, he said.

These were the most sensitive words in Israeli politics - with Israeli politics electrically polarised around them. The continuation or fall of the Israeli government could hinge on them:
The Right had warned that they would quit the government unless the invasion of Rafah were green-lighted; the Biden position, however, was communicated to Netanyahu by phone as not just 'no Rafah light', but rather, 'Rafah zero'.
Then these explosive words - cessation of military operations and complete Israeli withdrawal - burst forth in the final text as agreed by the mediators in Cairo; and subsequently in Doha, on Monday, taking Israel by complete surprise. CIA Chief Bill Burns had represented the U.S. in both sessions, but Israel had chosen not to send a negotiations team.

Comment: Surely everything the US does - be it planned or spontaneous - is known in advance by Israel. They are glued together from conception to fate. Crooke offers excellent insight.


450,000 Palestinians flee Rafah as Israeli tanks move in

"Nowhere is safe" in Gaza, the UN's agency for Palestinian refugees has warned.

Some 450,000 Palestinians have fled Rafah since Israel ordered more of the city evacuated on Saturday, the UN's agency for Palestinian refugees said on Tuesday. Reports from the city suggest that Israeli forces are closing in on its densely-populated urban core.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) ordered people in the southeastern neighborhoods of Rafah to leave "immediately" on Saturday, with IDF spokesman Avichai Adraee warning that Israeli forces were preparing to strike Hamas targets there "with great force." The IDF has now evacuated the entire eastern third of the city following a similar order given earlier this month.

In a statement on Tuesday, the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) said that 450,000 people had heeded the orders. "People face constant exhaustion, hunger and fear. Nowhere is safe," the statement read. "An immediate cease-fire is the only hope."

Canada 'whitewashing' Nazi crimes - Russian prosecutor-general

© Sergey Guneev/SputnikRussian Prosecutor General Igor Krasnov
Igor Krasnov blasted Ottawa's refusal to prosecute SS veteran Yaroslav Hunka, honored last year by Parliament.

Ottawa's failure to prosecute a former Nazi soldier amounts to its government "whitewashing" the crimes of Adolf Hitler's regime, Russian Prosecutor-General Igor Krasnov has claimed.

Last September, SS veteran Yaroslav Hunka, 98 at the time, was invited to the Canadian parliament and given a standing ovation for his role in fighting "for Ukrainian independence against the Russians" during World War II. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had blamed a "mistake" amid the ensuing scandal. He claimed that his government was unaware of the former Nazi allegiance of the man.

China vows to take 'all necessary actions' in response to Biden's tariffs

China has vowed to resolutely defend its interests in the face of huge new US tariffs and warned that the trade barriers would affect the wider relationship between the two economic superpowers.

President Joe Biden on Tuesday announced that tariffs on $18 billion worth of imports of Chinese electric vehicles and an array of other products would soar over the next two years.

The White House said the measures were designed to protect American workers and businesses in the face of China's unfair trade practices, including "flooding global markets with artificially low-priced exports."

China "firmly opposes" the new tariffs, the country's Commerce Ministry said in a statement.
"The increase in ... tariffs by the United States contradicts President Joe Biden's commitment to 'not seek to suppress and contain China's development' and 'not to seek to decouple and break links with China'. This action will seriously impact the atmosphere of bilateral cooperation."
EVs imported from China will see their tariffs more than quadrupled from 27.5% to 100% โ€” a policy lever meant to challenge Beijing's practice of encouraging aggressively low pricing by domestic EV manufacturers while levying a 40% tariff on US car imports.
