The Neo-Colonisation of Libya – theRedPen News

The two most prolific frenemies of the international political scene at the moment, Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, have been seemingly quite opportunistic lately. Whilst an unhinged, unpredictable President Trump in the USA completely erodes all the (albeit illusionary) competence and credibility of his office, Putin and Erdogan have taken it upon themselves to be the new “humanitarian peace-making world police” given their roles in the Syrian conflict. In all fairness, Putin can take credit for aiding peace negotiations there — Turkish invasion hardly was a very good way to try and uphold the country’s national stability — but ... Read more

Ocasio-Cortez Calls The Democratic Party ‘Center-Conservative’

During Blackout for Human Rights’ fifth annual MLK Now event, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said the Democratic Party is a “center-conservative” party. She cited the inability of Congress to vote on “Medicare for All” as the sole reason for this claim. “The Democratic Party is not a left party, the Democratic Party is a center, or center-conservative party,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “We can’t even get a floor vote on ‘Medicare for All,’ not even a floor vote that gets voted down. We can’t even get a vote on it, so this is not a left party. There are left members inside ... Read more
