Strong and emotional speech from President Trump at 75th D-Day anniversary in Normandy

Another strong speech by President Trump at 75th D-Day anniversary in Normandy on Thursday. A very emotional speech and not at least; historic. I remember Bill Clinton and George Bush`s speeches but this one was very special. Not to say magic.

I have repeated myself for decades; Its all about the good people and the bad people. Thats it. The Nazi regime was a terrible terrorist regime and their goal was to take Europe, but they failed. The turning point was in Normandy in France and we can thank America for that.

They saved Europe from tyranny and gave Europe Freedom and liberty. “We pledge that our nations will for ever be strong and united,” Trump said in the speech.

This year, it is 30 years since the Tinananmen Square massacre in China were the Communist party killed its own citizens. This year, it is 75 years since the battle in Normandy in France were the people won against the terrorists.

“When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.” What some elite people don`t understand is that the federal government is our servant, not our master!»

Normandy`s D-Day landing beaches have come to symbolise universal hopes for freedom and peace, and beyond that, for reconciliation

We will never be finish with World War II and the ideology behind it. 6th June 2019 marks the start of the 75th anniversary of the D-Day Landings and the Battle of Normandy and with it, a momentous occasion to celebrate peace, liberty and reconciliation.

Nigel Farage and his supporters is one of the first to celebrate next week because they see it as a victory for democracy. They don`t like EU because it crushes democracy and take decision-making powers away from ordinary people and gives it back to unelected bureaucrats in Brussels.

On 6 June 1944 and during the long summer that followed, men from all over the world came to fight in Normandy to defeat Nazism and re-establish freedom. Normandy will bear the scars of this moment in history for ever and every year we remember and pay tribute to the veterans from America, Britain and Canada to name a few. Keep in mind that Russia also defeated the Nazis.

The Normandy landings were the landing operations on Tuesday, 6 June 1944 of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overload during World War II. Codename Operation neptune and often referred to as D-Day, it was the largest seaborne invasion in history.

The operation began the liberation of German-occupied France (and later Europe) from Nazi control, and laid the foundation of the Allied victory on the Western Front.

After the German Army invaded the Soviet Union in June 1941, the Soviet leader Joseph Stalin began pressing his new allies for the creation of a second front in western Europe. In late May 1942, the Soviet Union and the United States made a joint announcement that a «…full understanding was reached with regard to the urgent tasks of creating a second front in Europe in 1942.»

However, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill persuaded US President Franklin D. Roosvelt to postpone the promised invasion as, even with US help, the Allies did not have adequate forces for such an activity.

Instead of an immediate return to France, the western Allies staged offensives in the Mediterranean Theatre of Operations, where British troops were already stationed. By mid-1943 the campaign in North Africa had been won.

The allies then launched the invasion of Sicily in June 1943, and subsequently invaded the Italian mainland in September the same year. By then, Soviet forces were on the offensive and had won a major victory at the Battle of Stalingrad.

The descision to undertake a cross-channel invasion within the next year was taken at the Trident Conference in Washington in May 1943. Initial planning was constrained by the number of available landing craft, most of which were already committed in the Mediterranean and Pacific.

At the Tehran Conference in November 1943, Roosvelt and Churchill promised Stalin that they would open the long-delayed second front in May 1944.

Hitler and the Nazis wanted Europe, but they lost. The Allies won and took back their own countries. They celebrated freedom and liberty. Two important things Trump often talks about. He also say that nobody can take control over the United States because they want to rule their own country.

Look at Europe now. Especially after the election were the Brexit-party won big. The Global establishment are often talking about the right-wing partys like «anti-imigrants» or «far-right partys», but that description is false.

They also often put Trump in the same folder as Salvini, Farage, Le Pen and Orban. How can so many experts be wrong? The global elite are doing a big mistake; they are not listening to the voters. The elites are being rejected because they failed, and the fight has just begun. It will intensify next year.

The global elite must start to eccept the fact that the populist conservatives and economic nationalists are on the rise. Just take a look at the «Deep State» in the U.S that rose up before and after Trump`s election. They tried to take him out from the office but failed.

Its fact; the global elites have suffered from their wishful thinking since Trumps inauguration. People in the U.K voted to leave the EU and in the U.S, they voted for Trump. What do you think? Are people in the U.K and the U.S stupid? It remain to see.

On 6 June 2019 at 6pm, the official international ceremony celebrating this major anniversary will take place on Juno Beach and will be attended by many Allied Heads of State.

U.S President Donald Trump, British Prime Minister Theresa May and many other world leaders and dignitaries will all be in Normandy to mark the 75th anniversary.

The French president, Emmanuel Macron is facing criticism for refusing to attend an international ceremony at Normandy`s Juno Beach next week. Instead, he is to take charge of a ceremony in homage to French commandos and Resistance fighters who took part in the Normandy landings in 1944.

In the morning of June 6, Theresa May and Mr Macron will lay the foundation stone of the future British Normandy Memorial, commemorating the 22,442 troops under British command who died in the summper of 1944 during fierce fighting as the Allies invaded France.

Later he will join Donald Trump at the American ceremony at Colleville-sur-Mer. At Omaha Beach, Mr Macron will award the Legion of Honour, France`s highest distinction, to five American veterans aged between 94 and 100.

Louis Mexandeau who is 87 years old, is a former minister for veterans, and he said: «We had hoped that France would honour in the appropriate manner the sacrifice of tens of thousands of Allied soldiers.»

We will all honor and pay tribute to our fallen heroes. The men who landed on D-Day, leading to victory in Europe in World War II.

A rich and unprecedented programme of events will be put together to bring the memory of this tragic period of world history to life, all while emphasizing the spirit of hope. The anniversary will be commemorated with military parades, firework displays, airdrops, giant picnics, conserts and military camp re-enactments.

Normandy`s D-Day landing beaches have come to symbolise universal hopes for freedom and peace, and beyond that, for reconciliation.

Eurosceptic parties are expected to make a strong showing at the polls on the ninth parliamentary election since 1979

The next election to the European Parliament is expected to be held between 23 and 26 May 2019, and will be the ninth parliamentary election since the first direct elections in 1979. A total of 751 members of the European Parliament (MEP`s) currently represent more than 512 million people from 28 member states.

The polarization of the European Parliament after the 2019 election is growing. Centrist parties, including center-left, center-right and liberal parties, are struggling to maintain a majority (376) of seats.

The ninth parliamentary election will make a big change because new parties such as Confederation and Kukiz15 of Poland, Czech Pirate Party of Czech Republic, Alliance, Basta! And Liberal Initiative of Portugal, USR and PLUS of Romania, LMS of Slovenia, Human Shield, Most and Workers Front of Croatia, L`SNS and Sme Rodina of Slovakia will participate.

For the liberals, the biggest hope is that the new La Rèpublique En Marche! of French President Macron will choose to join ALDE after the elctions.

However, En marche is expected to be more likely to try to form a new parliamentary group of pro-European centrists who support Macron`s plans to reform the European institutions, thus drawing away members from ALDE, EPP and S&D.

Possible partners for such a project might include Spanish Ciudadanos, Progressive Slovakia and the Hungarian Momentum Movement. While it is likely that En Marche will put together the minimum of 25 MEPs needed to form a group, the requirement to include MEPs from at least seven member states would be more difficult.

The European Spring initiated from the Democracy in Europe Movement 2025 will run as a pan-European party alliance with one unified vision for Europe; the European Green New Deal.

The most prominent figure is the former Greek minister Yanis Varoufakis, who will run as candidate in the constituency of Germany.

Volt Europa, a pan-European progressive movement, will run in several countries under the same name in the attempt to form its own group.

The leader of the Italian Five Star Movement has expressed a desire to form an anti-establishment faction of their own within the EU.

Pablo Iglesias, Catarina Martins, Jean-Luc Mèlenchon and several others have formed an alliance in Maintenant le Peuple opposed to the PEL, but they are likely remain in GUE/NGL.

The Movement is an alliance of right-wing populist parties set up by Steve Bannon with the purpose of contesting the European elections. Participating parties include Lega Nord, People`s Party of Belgium and Brothers of Italy and possible French National Rally.

Originally envisioned as an attempt to unite the right-wing populist parties in Europe. The Movement has so far been snubbed by the Alternative for Germany, the Freedom Party of Austria and the UK Independence Party.

The biggest party is the European Peoples Party (EPP), followed by Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats (S&D) and Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) + En Marche! Next can be Salvinis European Alliance of People and Nations (ex ENF).

EPP`s Incumbent Jean-Claude Juncker has stated he will not seek a second term as President. Two candidates sought the nomination of the EPP: Alexander Stubb, the Vice-President of the European Investment Bank, former prime minister, foreign minister and finance minister of Finland.

Manfred Weber, current group leader for the European People`s Party in the European Parliament and member of the Christian Social Union in Bavaria has been backed by Angela merkel as Spitzenkadidat for the party.

Oriol Junqueras, a Catalan historian, academic and former Vice President of Catalonia who is currently imprisoned because of his involvement in the 2017 Catalan independence referendum, is the Spitzenkadidat of the European Free Alliance.

Eurosceptic parties are expected to make a strong showing at the polls and all the Brexit-mess have made Eurosceptics more silent. So, instead of leaving the EU, Europes right-wing nationalists like Marine Le Pen of France, Italys Matteo Salvini, and the AfD will stay and rather try to «change the EU from the inside».

European economics commissioner Pierre Moscovici has warned of the dangers of a populist «breakthrough» for the EU`s future. He describes these elections as the «most delicate and most dangerous ever».

The nationalist Eurosceptics threatened to «destroy the EU as we know it», Pierre said. Choose your future.

The system is rigged and The Idea of a meritocracy has turned out to be a “myth”

President Donald Trump was right; the system is rigged. Dozens of parents are spending in some cases between $200,000 and $6,5 million US to ensure their children could gain entry into some of America`s most competitive colleges.

More than 50 wealthy individuals were charged this week in purportedly the largest college admission scam ever in th U.S. The scam reveals the depths parents will allegedly go so their kids can have an upper hand and tout first-class higher education credentials.

Critics of the U.S college admissions system say it also exposes a rigged playing field for admissions and who gets left behind, according to Cbc.

The Justice Department said wealthy parents paid a consulting firm to falsify athletic credentials with Photoshopped pictures of their children playing competitive sports they never played.

They also paid for arrangements to have SAT test-takers pose as their children, fabricate medical conditions to allow their children extra time to take tests, and bribe administrators of college entrance exams to look the other way when it came to their children`s cheating.

The $25-million scheme «drives home the reality that the education system is stacked in favour of the rich. The Idea of a meritocracy has turned out to be a «myth,» with the SAT acting as a form of «affirmative action for rich white kids,» author Joseph Soares said.

I`m not shocked at all, The West have lost its greatness long time ago and this is just the tip of the iceberg. You can imagine how it is if your soccer team have low-skilled players. You will lose every battle. So is it for a country.

You will end up with bad politicians, weak business leaders and fake news. If the kids learn to cheat at the school it will be worse in real life. Nothing is worse than a rotten elite. Just take a look at the real life among the elite Trump is trying to fix now. Manaford is the latest but I guess it will be more.

Trump has done a lot of thing to make America great again and this is the latest case. Trump who is a business man. Not a politician. The same can be said about president Macron. He started his own political party in the middle because people in France was sick and tired of the establishment.

The establishment is France didnt even follow their own constitution. They probably didnt learn it at their elite school. How is it possible? Look at the situation with the Yellow Vest protesters in France. This has been going on not only for years but decades.

Meritocracy is an Academic discipline from Ancient Greek. Philosophers tried to build a system and a great democracy but look at it today. They are not following the rules.

Meritocracy is a political philosophy that holds that certain things, such as economic goods or power, should be vested in individuals on the basis of talent, effort, and achievement, rather than factors such as sexuality, race, gender, age, or wealth.

Advancement in such a system is based on performance, as measured through examination or demonstrated achievement. The Meritocracy is the society in which the gifted, the smart, the energetic, the ambitious and the ruthless are carefully sifted out and helped towards their destined position of dominance.

In the United States, the assassination of President James A. Garfield in 1881 prompted the replacement of the American Spoils System with a meritocracy. In 1883, the Pendleton Civil Service Reform Act was passed, stipulating government jobs should be awarded on the basis of merit through competitive exams, rather than ties to politicians ar political affiliation.

The concept has existed for centuries but the term «meritocracy» is relatively new. The earliest example of an administrative meritocracy, based on civil service examinations, dates back to Ancient China.

The concept originates, at least by the sixth century BC, when it was advocated by the Chinese philosopher Confucius, who «invented the notion that those who govern should do so because of merit, not of inherited status.

Ass the Qin and Han dynasties developed a meritocratic system in order to maintain power over a large, sprawling empire, it became necessary for the government to maintain a complex network of officials.

Prospective officials could come from a rural background and government positions were not restricted to the nobility. Rank was determined by merit, through the civil service examinations, and education became the key for social mobility.

One of the oldest examples of a merit-based civil service system existed in the imperial bureaucracy of China. Tracing back to 200 B.C, the Han Dynasty adopted Confucianism as the basis of its political philosophy and structure, which included the revolutionary idea of replacing nobility of blood with one virtue and honesty, and thereby calling for administrative appointments to be based solely on merits.

This system allowed anyone who passed an examination to become a government officer, a position that would bring wealth and honor to the whole family. In part due to Chinese influence, the first European civil service did not originate in Europe, but rather in India by the British-run East India Company.

Company managers hired and promoted employees based on competitive examinations in order to prevent corruption and favoritism.

Both Plato and Aristotle advocated meritocracy. Plato in his «The Republic,» arguing that the wisest should rule, and hence the rulers should be philosopher kings.

Who are the “gilets jaunes” (yellow vest) protesters?

Mainstream Media (MSM) is telling you that the protesters in France are Far-Right or hooligans, but that`s a big lie. The protesters are people in all ages from both left and right and from all different classes. This movement is different from all other movements we have seen in France so far.

70 percent of the people in France support the movement and it`s not only about gas prices but also about their standard of living. This is happening in a country with an Unemployment rate of 9,1 percent and a wage growth of 0,4 percent. On top of that there is a Youth Unemployment rate of 21,5 percent. Not only that; the unemployment rate reached a record low of 7,2 percent in 2008. I repeat; Record low of 7,2 percent.

Protesters in France are chanting “We want Trump”, but why are they doing that? The difference between Trump and Macron couldnt be more clear. Trump are on the peoples side and cut taxes, while Macron is doing the opposite; increase the taxes which in unpopular to the people.

Yellow Vest Protest will pick up again on Saturday.
