Rutte Doctrine, Corruption and Media [Update]

by Oui Thu Jul 8th, 2021 at 03:04:11 PM EST

Diary has been updated ...

The Netherlands has been sliding into the new standard of political lies, populism rightwing rhetoric and attack on government institutions, police, ambulance and first responders. In The year where pressure is placed on society as a whole due to the global Covid-19 pandemic, the fragility and lack of solidarity becomes clear.

The European Union was established in the aftermath of killing fields of two devastating world wars started in Sarajevo and the ensuing evil of Nazi fascism in Berlin. The genocides in the 20th Century are looming as a black ghastly cloud in our history. Similarly in America the aftermath of the Civil War is racism, inequality in slavery by capitalism. The Canadian residential schools and killing fields of young children haunts the Anglo-Saxon white establishment from Ottawa to Toronto.

Western European nation with a colonial past

PM Balkenende in 2009 statement, the Dutch need the Colonial VOC mentality

What Dutch government got were more nationalists, and far right extremists calling to shut borders to foreigners. The Christian Democrats drop in parliamentary seats ever since and are hanging on to Rutte policy supported by Sigrid Kaag and "leader" Wopke Hoekstra.

Democracy has lost its ideals due to corruption

Chicago gangsters rubbed shoulders with Democrat Mayor Daley ... New York - London - Paris - Rome - Tel Aviv - Moscow and many capitals in between.

Corruption is seen at every level ... nearby in sport clubs, often anonymous, where mob money enters to reach into the high levels of Dutch society and government. We let it happen. We have become witness of our own destruction of individuals, community, country, continent and ultimately our planet 🌎.

Resident from Wassenaar fills the cash of political party 50PLUS | TV West - March 2017 |

WASSENAAR - Real estate company  Metterwoon of multimillionaire Chris Thünnessen from Wassenaar has filled the cash of the elderly party 50PLUS in recent years with a total of 350,000 euros.

Thünnessen is one of the most important financiers behind the late Pim Fortuyn and later Rita Verdonk. The chairman of Fortuyn's then party Liveable Netherlands, Jan Nagel, is now chairman of 50PLUS.

All three political parties have gone from the political landscape or made a new start in a splinter group. Due to lack of members and donations, the larger parties rely on corporate money or wealthy lobbyists.

So our wealthiest corporate persons who do not pay their dues to society are racing to outer space ... as aliens sometimes intersect our atmosphere but refuse to interact. Can only wonder to their reasoning ... has earth become so unattractive?

Threat to Journalists and Press Freedom


Ridouan Taghi linked to three biker gang murders | NL Times – Feb. 2020 |

Ridouan Taghi was linked to a total of nine ordered assassinations, in which three people were actually murdered, in the Eris trial - the case around motorcycle gang Caloh Wagoh. The ordered assassinations were aimed at 14 people, the Public Prosecution Service (OM) said in an introductory hearing in this case. So far no decision has been made on prosecuting Taghi in this process, RTL Nieuws reports.

Taghi's name was previously mentioned in these proceedings, but the OM is now certain that he is behind most of the ordered assassinations in this case. This conclusion came from investigation into a large number of messages sent on so-called PGP-encrypted phones, the Prosecutor said in the high security court at Schiphol.

This case revolves around 12 members of biker gang Caloh Wagoh. The OM suspects them of preparing for and committing assassinations, threats, extortion, illegal firearm possession, and illegal firearm trade.

While Taghi is not yet being prosecuted in this case, he is one of 17 suspects in the so-called Marengo trial, which revolves around at least nine assassinations.

The attack on Peter de Vries also resulted in a tweet from the Slovenian interior minister Aleš Hojs, himself a journalist and former minister of defense in his country, who currently is chairing the Justice and Home Affairs Council.

Rightly so that AJ, a Qatari owned news outlet, covered human rights elsewhere ...

Of course the boycott was misleading as the effort was mocking Putin and Russia before the Madan uprising well prepared and already in the final stages ... thanking assistant to Dick Cheney, Vicky Nuland, Republicans Lindsey Graham and John "Free Syria" McCain. Next ... bomb, bomb, bomb Iran!

Almere's powerlessness with passports causes irritation at the Military Police Schiphol

The Royal Netherlands Marechaussee is not happy with the referral from the Municipality of Almere to the military police, now that Almeerders cannot go to civil affairs for a passport or identity card until August. As a result, there is a high demand for emergency documents.
