Dutch PM Rutte an Advocate of Thatcherism

After Brexit and the election of Boris Johnson, it's Conservative Dutch Prime Minister to do Donald Trump a favor ...

'Frugal four' seek smaller aid package

The size of the recovery package has been the biggest bone of contention as the Netherlands, along with Austria, Denmark, Sweden — the so-called "Frugal Four" — as well as Finland have put their weight behind a smaller fund and smaller portion of grants.

They demanded that any loans or grants should be accompanied by strict conditions to ensure the countries that are under heavy debt carry out labor market reform.

Germany and France have been pushing for an ambitious package of loans and subsidies to member states, and have repeatedly appealed for a compromise.

Dutch Whistleblower: AG Khan and the Islamic Bomb

by Oui Tue Jul 7th, 2020 at 01:42:06 PM EST

Today Frits Veerman is recognized as an official whistleblower after 45 years …

Nuclear espionage whistleblower: "The Pakistani nuclear bomb is made in Holland"

In the context of the World Whistleblowing Day we share an exclusive interview with the Dutch whistleblower Frits Veerman, who revealed the great nuclear espionage of the 1970s. Veerman was one of the first to bring his case to the newly founded House for Whistleblowers in 2016. He wants reparation and compensation because he feels that the Dutch government treated him unjustly at the time. The interview was conducted by Transparency International Netherlands (TI-NL) Communications & Project Officer Lotte Rooijendijk. Transparency International believes that whistleblowers should be protected: they contribute to a world in which wrongdoing are resolved, instead of being covered up.

In the 1960s, Frits Veerman worked at VMF-Stork's Physical Dynamic Research Laboratory (FDO), also seen as the cradle of uranium enrichment using the ultracentrifuge process. "Enriched uranium is predominantly used as fuel for nuclear power plants. However, the same technology can be applied to make critical mass with which you can develop a nuclear bomb," says Veerman.

What went wrong within the organization and how did Veerman discover this?

In the early 1970s the Pakistani nuclear scientist, Abdul Khan, joined VMF Stork, where he worked with Veerman on ultracentrifuge technology. Because Khan had lived in Europe for eleven years and was married to a Dutch-speaking woman, he passed the security investigation of the National Security Service (BVD) without any problems. As contact between colleagues Veerman and Khan became closer and a friendship developed, Veerman found out that Khan stole essential knowledge for uranium enrichment and passed it on to the Pakistani government. Pakistan had a great interest in this: the country wanted to become a nuclear power.

Trump Advised "No Quarter" Stand

by Oui Mon Jun 8th, 2020 at 07:30:33 AM EST

Marking peaceful protesters as antifa terrorists, will the fake god in the White House open the gates of Civil War bloodshed as his legacy?

Truly the long expected "Nero watching Rome burn" epic moment for America. And future presidential candidate Tom Cotton willing to throw fuel on the fire.

Trump takes note as the far right lobbies for violent crackdown on peaceful protests | The Guardian |

As protests over the police killing of George Floyd continue across the US, a slew of influential rightwing figures have been urging an ever more violent crackdown on the demonstrations - and it appears Donald Trump is listening.

Republican politicians, media personalities and rightwing activists have floated ideas including deploying specific units of the military, while one Republican candidate for Congress has even suggested she will shoot protesters.

Tom Cotton, a US senator for Arkansas who is said to be plotting a run for president in 2024, has been one of the loudest voices.
