Ted cruz: the democrats are the party of lisa simpson, the republicans are the party of homer, bart, maggie and marge

The person who had caused the most media attention in the run-up to this year’s u.S. Conservative conference cpac spoke on the very first day: marion marechal-le pen, marine le pen’s 28-year-old niece who is herself active as a front national mp. She gave a speech directed mainly against the eu, in which france and its individuals are no longer free. Therefore, she called for building in other countries on what conservatives in the u.S. Had achieved. This is the only way they could win back their countries. "America first in us, france first in france" – said the politician, speaking with a (if you will) self-confidently strong french accent.

Energy policy could also play a decisive role in the hamburg city elections. The planned moorburg coal-fired power plant acts as a testing ground for partisan politics

On 24. In february, 1.2 million hamburg residents will vote for a new city council. The cdu and its popular mayor, ole von beust, are still in power with an absolute majority, but this comfortable situation is likely to change. The spd sends schroders former minister of state for culture michael naumann into the race as a supposed all-inclusive candidate, hopes after the good result in hesse for a continuation of the waiting trend and otherwise counts on the support of the traditionally strong gal. The fdp not only wants to enter the bourgeoisie, but also the government, and the left party can probably look forward to its fourth west german success within a short period of time.

It is difficult to say at this point which bill will ultimately be successful. However, the party-political power relations seem to resemble those in hesse, and the focal points in terms of content do not differ significantly either – if one disregards roland koch’s idiosyncratically staged special ies. In addition to minimum wages and the shaping of social justice, budget consolidation and questions of internal security, the ies in hamburg are also the abolition or retention of education costs and, above all, energy policy. These days, the focus of public interest is not on the nuclear mailers in krummel, brunsbuttel or brokdorf, but on two power plant units that have not even been built yet.

Tensions over evolution in u.S. School education leave knowledge gaps

A bill is being introduced in the state of missouri that would require school principals to inform parents when evolutionary theory is being taught in class. In addition, the law provides that parents can opt their children out of these classes if they so choose. The teaching of darwin’s theory of evolution is a "absolute violation of faith", argues republican congressman rick brattin, who supports the bill.

Reform of ukraine’s catch provides for decentralization, but not a federal state

The ukrainian leadership wants to decentralize the country and give the regions and municipalities more powers, for example to levy taxes independently of the central government, but it shies away from federalization as if it were the devil. Now president poroshenko has presented the supplements to the interception required by the minsk agreement, which also regulate what status the separatists-controlled. There is a great urgency, because kiev wants to hold local elections already in october, according to the changed constitution. However, regional, district and local elections throughout the country are not scheduled to take place until the end of october 2017, which is apparently how long the government wants to keep its hands on the tails.

Decentralization should not diminish the state of the central government in matters of defense, national security, rule of law or observance of civil liberties, poroshenko said, adding that it has a positive impact on the state of the country "nothing in common with a foderalization". The current form of government with a single president is "optimal". However, he will hand over an important part of the competences and financial resources to the regions and municipalities, and the central government will mainly perform the function of control. Decentralization is to be followed by a reform of the judicial system and the abolition of immunity for deputies and judges.

Erdogan: adultery finally punishable?

Turkish justice ministry to draft new law. "This society has a different rank when it comes to moral values"

Who has the better moral values, the eu or turkey?? The excitement associated with such a juxtaposition, and the ease with which it can be drawn, provides the background motive for the following "conservative" law renewal, which turkish president erdogan has already initiated, according to his spokesman ibrahim kalın: the reintroduction of punishment in case of "adultery, infidelity or extramarital sexual intercourse".

The reading that erdogan’s initiative has much to do with a moral standoff with the eu is emphasized in an al-monitor report on the intention to criminalize adultery. But the decisive factor for this reading was erdogan himself.
