I was watching the U.S President Donald Trump`s much anticipated debut address to Congress on February 28. A speech that was big on rhetoric and I think investors will need to wait for any tax cuts and infrastructure investments.
In his one hour speech, there was one thing that was mind-blowing to the listeners. Nearly everyone in Capitol Hill said: Wowww to Trumps innovation.
President Donald Trump is in war with the MSM and in his speech he said the U.S must support law enforcement and victims of crime, adding it will provide a voice to people ignored by the media and silenced by special interests.
Trump have ordered the Department of Homeland Security to create an office to save American victims, and the office is called: VOICE (Victims of immigration Crime Engagement). After announcing the initiative on Tuesday, you could hear people in Capitol Hill were surprised.
The new office will publish a weekly list of all crimes committed by immigrants, which means people with or without U.S documents could find their names on the list.
Freedom of speech is understood to be fundamental in a democracy, and it’s not something new. It is thought that ancient Athens’ democratic ideology of free speech may have emerged in the late 6th or early 5th century BC.
The values of the Roman Republic included freedom of speech and freedom of religion.
Concepts of freedom of speech can be found in early human rights documents. England`s Bill of Rights 1689 legally established the constitutional right of ‘freedom of speech in Parliament’ which is still in effect.
The Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, adopted during the French Revolution in 1789, specifically affirmed freedom of speech as an inalienable right. The Declaration provides for freedom of expression in Article 11, which states that:
The free communication of ideas and opinions is one of the most precious of the rights of man. Every citizen may, accordingly, speak, write, and print with freedom, but shall be responsible for such abuses of this freedom as shall be defined by law.
This leads us back to Paris and Charlie Hebdo. A French satirical weekly newspaper that features cartoons, reports, polemics and jokes. The publication is irrelevant and stridently non-conformist in tone, is strongly secularist, nonreligious, and left-wing.
They had a lot of fun with nearly everybody like athletes, Kings, Presidents, religions and pop stars to name a few. The cartoonists didn
t just mock President Nicolas Sarkozy and Francois Hollandes politics. They also regularly amplified their sexual appetites and diminished their sexual appurtenances.
Charlie Hebdo`s editor, Stephane Charbonnier, said at that time: “We thought the lines had moved and maybe there would be more respect for our satirical work, our right to mock. Freedom to have a good laugh is as important as freedom of speech.”
s offices have been firebombed, Facebook page suspended for 24 hours and its website hacked. They were attacked by Al-Qaedas Islamist terrorist group because they where kidding with the prophet Muhammed.
Cartoonist Stèphane “Charb” Charbonnier, murdered in the attack on the magazine, had been the editor-in chief of Charlie Hebdo since 2009. Two years before the attack he stated: “We have to carry on until Islam has been rendered as banal as Catholicism.” In 2013, al-Qaeda added him to its most wanted list.
We have also seen how the MSM tried to bring President Donald Trump down to the ground especially before the election. Now, they are trying to figure out a new campaign to try to get rid of him. Is all this funny things responsibility?
