Blogging the Islamist infiltration of OSCE

Tundra Tabloids 28 October 2011

Note: The liveblogging is now complete, no further updates.

Under the headline Confronting Intolerance and Discrimination Against Muslims in Public Discourse, OIC and other Islamist groups are trying to leverage the OSCE to gain protection against criticism of Islam and the acts of Islamist movements. Our reporter ESW is on the spot analyzing how this discrimination based on religion is to be brought about. Read on for strange assertions such as “Islamic anti-Semitism doesn’t exist”. Læs resten

LA: Euroen er et politisk projekt

Fra 2011-valgets EU-debat på Toga, svar på spørgsmålet “Hvor længe overlever euroen?”

Thomas Køhler fra LA forklarer det meningsløse i at love, at tilslutning til euroen giver bedre økonomi, højere beskæftigelse og velstand. Euroen er et politisk projekt, indført for at få knytte folk tættere sammen, ikke en økonomisk fordel. Det kan man vælge at gå med på, hvis det er det man ønsker, men politikerne bør ikke love vælgerne rigdom som konsekvens af en dansk eurotilslutning. Læs resten

HTS: Et farvel til statsgælden?

Conversely, a just and lasting solution to the Cyprus problem can be found in classical international law. Matters not that hard to understand. Læs resten

Drop fastkursen, lad kronen flyde

Når den schweiziske storbank UBS foreslår Danmark at lade kronen flyde, er der al mulig grund til at tage det alvorligt. Der er ingen god grund til at Danmark skal være bundet til en euro i stadig dybere problemer, når vi nu har muligheden for at lade være. Fastkurspolitikken er nemlig ensidig dansk, der er ingen at spørge til råds eller om lov hvis vi beslutter os for at opgive den. Det kunne gøres i morgen. Læs resten

Barroso vs. Moody’s: Who do you trust?

EuropeNews 8 July 2011

Fresh from calling the Danes to order over their border control, European Commission Chairman José Manuel Barroso now faces the risk of a total financial meltdown in his native Portugal. Barroso moves to save Portugal from rating agencies and other detractors of the Portuguese economy.
As reported by EUobserver:

Portugal-born EU commission chief Jose Manuel Barroso on Wednesday (6 July) accused American credit rating agency Moody’s of being “biased” and “speculative” for downgrading its assessment of Portugal’s debt payment capacity. Læs resten
