Spanish politics shaken by
awakening of the far-right

Associated Press, by Artz Parra

MADRID - A regional election in Spain saw a surge of support for a far-right party and dealt a major setback for the ruling Socialists, whose prime minister said Monday that he will defend democracy from fear. The anti-migrant, anti-feminist and euroskeptic Vox party won 12 seats Sunday in the 109-member parliament of Andalusia, Spain´s most populated region and a bastion of the Socialists for the past 36 years. The four-year-old Vox party, which had not previously held any seats in Spain, could now be a kingmaker and oust the Socialists from Andalusia´s regional government if they strike

Far Right is apparently anyone who doesn´t want the country trampled under by illegal immigrants.

Right wing means whoever the MSM doesn´t like.

The hard line Soviets that wanted to hang on to communism as the Soviet Union was falling were called right wing by the world media.

So the definition involving who makes the decisions regarding capital investment no longer means anything to the terms left wing and right wing.

Bioshock Infinite had a VOX party, the game was released in March of 2013. The Vox party in Spain was launched in Dec 2013.

The VOX in the game were a group of enslaved people fighting to gain their freedom.

The media labels are intended to create fear. Case in point, Socialism is referred to as mainstream. The media says Socialist, not far left socialist. However, the far right is often used to describe fascist. This is very interesting since Fascism and Socialism are both completing goobernment philosophy that are variants of communism. Both are far left. However, the media, in its quest to lie to us, identifies fascism as if its Barry Goldwater, Ronald Reagan or Dwight Eisenhower.

I think I´ll twist H L Mencken´s words a little:
The whole aim of practical journalism is to keep the populace alarmed, and hence clamorous to be led to safety, by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

He wrote about ´practical politics´ so I just made a little apt substitution. The real problems go largely unreported by what I call practical journalism and what our President terms fake news..

Gee in America anti Illegal trespassing is called anti immigrant. Gee in America the belief in the sanctity of human life is considered anti feminist, anti woman.

Do they mean the individual liberty limited government far right or do they mean the opposite statist fascist far right or the anarchist far right just what it the hell is far right? I refuse to let that term simply lay out there open to interpretation.

CHICAGO – The outgoing mayor of Chicago wants to legalize recreational marijuana and open a casino to help address a growing pension crisis in the nation’s third largest city, a source close to the mayor said Tuesday. Rahm Emanuel, who is set to leave office in May, will propose both measures in a major address on Wednesday, according to the source, who was not authorized to speak publicly before the mayor’s address.

Senate Democrats on Tuesday named Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) as the ranking member of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, despite objections by progressive groups. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) announced the appointment, along with the ranking members of other panels. (Snip) Environmentalists have for weeks slammed Manchin and called on Schumer to use his authority to name someone else ranking member.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has the core of her 2020 team in place if she runs for president. She has the seed money — there’s $12.5 million ready to go, left from her recent Senate run — and a massive email list she’s amassed over years, boosted by a $3.3 million investment in digital infrastructure and advertising in the last election alone. Her aides have been quietly shopping for presidential campaign headquarters space in the Boston area in recent weeks, according to a source with knowledge of the move. All that’s left is for her to give the green light.

WASHINGTON — The 2020 Democratic presidential primary, already expected to be the party’s most wide open in decades, has been jostled on the eve of many long-plotted campaign announcements by a political threat that few contenders bothered considering until recently: Will a soon-to-be-former congressman, with an unremarkable legislative record and a Senate campaign loss, upend their best-laid plans? Representative Beto O’Rourke of Texas has emerged as the wild card of the presidential campaign-in-waiting for a Democratic Party that lacks a clear 2020 front-runner. After a star-making turn in his close race against Senator Ted Cruz, Mr. O’Rourke is increasingly serious

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. — Progressive Democrats are beginning to confront an unintended consequence of their own success: Dilution of the brand. So many Democratic presidential prospects are now claiming the progressive mantle in advance of the 2020 primaries that liberal leaders are trying to institute a measure of ideological quality control, designed to ensure the party ends up with a nominee who meets their exacting standards. Leaders of the Congressional Progressive Caucus are discussing policy platforms that could serve as a litmus test for presidential contenders. Progressive donors, meanwhile, are plotting steps — ranging from closer engagement with campaigns to

Washington - The race is starting so early, and the field is so crowded, that announcing you are not running for president is now a news event.

ABC News’ livestream of President George H. W. Bush’s funeral Wednesday took an uncomfortable turn when the panelists joked about President Trump’s future funeral. “It will be the best presidential funeral ever,” ABC correspondent Terry Moran said. “No one will ever have seen anything like that funeral.” The exchange started when Moran, a veteran ABC News anchor, argued that Trump’s election was a “repudiation of much of what George Herbert Walker Bush and George Walker Bush stood for because the people who voted him wanted that repudiation.” Moran went on to say that Trump is “an expression of the

DAKAR, Senegal — The second-largest Ebola outbreak in history has spread to a major city in eastern Congo, as health experts worry whether the stock of an experimental vaccine will stand up to the demands of an epidemic with no end in sight. Butembo, with more than 1 million residents, is now reporting cases of the deadly hemorrhagic fever. That complicates Ebola containment work already challenged by rebel attacks elsewhere that have made tracking the virus almost impossible in some isolated villages. “We are very concerned by the epidemiological situation in the Butembo area,” said John Johnson, project coordinator

The Supreme Court declined to review three cases relating to Republican efforts to defund Planned Parenthood at the state level Monday, over a vigorous dissent from Justice Clarence Thomas. The dissent was significant because it indicates that Justice Brett Kavanaugh sided with the high court’s liberal wing to deny review of a lower court decision that favored the nation’s largest abortion provider. “So what explains the Court’s refusal to do its job here?,” Thomas wrote. “I suspect it has something to do with the fact that some respondents in these cases are named ‘Planned Parenthood.

Hundreds of young demonstrators turned out Monday on Capitol Hill to push Democrats on a package of ambitious environmental goals — including a nationwide transition to 100 percent power from renewable sources within as little as 10 years — that´s collectively dubbed the Green New Deal. Already embraced by Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., an increasingly influential figure on the left, the Green New Deal is designed to nudge prospective Democratic
