Tuesday, August 18, 2009Javier Solana's spokesperson sent the following letter to "Jurnal de Chisinau", a leading independent newspaper in Moldova:
Brussels, 14 August 2009
Mrs. Rodica Mahu
Editor in Chief
Jurnal de Chisinau
Dear Ms. Rodica Mahu,
The European Union expresses bewilderment with the article published on the website jurnal.md on August 12 and in the newspaper "Jurnal de Chisinau", on August 14. The article contains unsubstantiated allegations of criminal activities and treachery allegedly committed by the Special Representative of the European Union (EUSR) for Moldova, Mr Kalman Mizsei. We expect from a professional mass media organisation that any article containing such serious allegations be carefully examined by the editor-in-chief, using established codes of ethics and the professional journalistic practices of verification of information.
The EUSR, Mr Kalman Mizsei, enjoys the full confidence of the High Representative of the European Union, Mr. Javier Solana, and of the Foreign Ministers from all 27 EU Member States who on an annual basis have reconfirmed that trust by extending his mandate. We expect above-mentioned article to be removed from the site jurnal.md, and that a denial will be published in next edition of Jurnal de Chisinau.
Cristina GallaghSpokesperson of the SG / HR Javier Solana"
The above is a link to an article that introduced me to a woman named Carol Wolman. After I read her article I sent her an email asking her why she did not object to the outrageous behavior of Clinton. In typical fashion she made lots of excuses for Clinton but carried on her diatribe against Bush. Then followed a many months long exchange via email with her. It was scary knowing she is an M.D. and Psychiatrist. From time to time I check up on her doings. She calls herself a Christian. She's New Age. She's another one to watch.
I'm not sure Bush was clean of the New Age himself. He threw lots of chewy bones to extreme New Age forces such as Rev. Moon, e.g. Josette Sheeran's appointment to head the World Food Programme. Sometimes the sneakier, blend in with the Christian variety (Doug Coe is a prime example) scare me more than those out in the open. But thanks for the lead. I'll check her out.
Re: The Green parties of the world, both here in the USA and in Europe are long time New Age.
Moreover,besides being neo-Nazi-infiltrated New Age, GREEN IS THE NEW RED!!!!
IMHO, ALL IS ONE!!!
Thanks for the tip on EOL -- yep, it's the New Age beaming from the heart of Israel -- Mayan calendar and all!
It seems that this time - there is a real group effort to try and push the plan off the table and on to the map, regardless of any consequences.
KENNEDY,LIBERAL LION OF US POLITICS
Kennedy’s seat may remain empty for months
It may be months before the Senate seat of Edward Kennedy is filled, following his death at the age of 77 on Tuesday.
A long-term vacancy could have effects far beyond Kennedy’s home state of Massachusetts, since his death deprives the Democrats of the 60-vote “supermajority” with which they can theoretically force laws through the Senate despite Republican objections.
Under Massachusetts law, a special election must be held 145 to 160 days — about five months — after a Senate seat becomes vacant. The winner of that election serves the remainder of a senator’s unexpired term.
Just last week, Kennedy urged that the law be changed to allow the governor to appoint a temporary replacement until the special election can be held.
In a letter to Gov. Deval Patrick and other state leaders, Kennedy said he supports the current law, but adds, “I also believe it is vital for (Massachusetts) to have two voices speaking for the needs of its citizens and two votes in the Senate during the approximately five months between a vacancy and an election.”
Certainly, as with us all, myself included, Ted Kennedy had his human flaws and imperfections. His attitude on what he called "narrowness" referring to "Christian fundamentalism" or "narrowness of any type" distressed me. Nevertheless, his sponsorship of the Civil Rights Act, Americans with Disabilities Act and many other legislative endeavors made a change in many peoples lives, ours included for the better. (My husband lost both legs above the knees in an October 15, 1979 accident.
Jesus said that the commandments were summed as follows:
THOU SHALT LOVE THE LORD THY GOD WITH ALL THY HEART, ALL THY MIND, AND ALL THY SOUL A N D THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS THYSELF.
Too many liberals forget the first half of that equation. Too many conservatives the second.
Where Ted Kennedy at the hour of his death stood with the Lord, I do not know. I do suspect, however, that come Judgment Day, he will have relatively high marks on LOVING HIS NEIGHBOR AS HIMSELF.
May he rest in peace.
Here is what CNN did not report.
WHAT KENNEDY WANTS
He's trying to change election rules - again.
August 21, 2009
Senator Ted Kennedy, who is gravely ill with brain cancer, has sent a letter to Massachusetts lawmakers requesting a change in the state law that determines how his Senate seat would be filled if it became vacant before his eighth full term ends in 2012. Current law mandates that a special election be held at least 145 days after the seat becomes available. Mr. Kennedy is concerned that such a delay could leave his fellow Democrats in the Senate one vote short of a filibuster-proof majority for months while a special election takes place.
"I therefore am writing to urge you to work together to amend the law through the normal legislative process to provide for a temporary gubernatorial appointment until the special election occurs," writes the Senator.
What Mr. Kennedy doesn't volunteer is that he orchestrated the 2004 succession law revision that now requires a special election, and for similarly partisan reasons. John Kerry, the other Senator from the state, was running for President in 2004, and Mr. Kennedy wanted the law changed so the Republican Governor at the time, Mitt Romney, could not name Mr. Kerry's replacement. "Prodded by a personal appeal from Senator Edward M. Kennedy," reported the Boston Globe in 2004, "Democratic
legislative leaders have agreed to take up a stalled bill creating a special election process to replace U.S. Senator John F. Kerry if he wins the presidency." Now that the state has a Democratic Governor, Mr. Kennedy wants to revert to gubernatorial appointments.
Beacon Hill has long sported heavy Democratic majorities, so the state legislature has the votes to grant Mr. Kennedy's wish. But does it have the chutzpah? An election is the more democratic option. After witnessing recent attempts by incompetent Governors in Illinois and New York to fill Senate vacancies, Massachusetts voters may have soured on such appointments. Especially when Mr. Kennedy's motivation for changing the law is so obviously born of partisan interest, not principle.
Now you know the rest of the story.
