United CEO Defends Staff's Violent "Reaccomodation" Of "Belligerent" Passenger

In a letter to employees, United CEO Oscar Munoz said he was "upset to see and hear about what happened," but defended his staff's actions because the passenger had been "disruptive and belligerent." It seems not acquiescing to a computer's decision to select you for 'reaccomodation' is "disruptive" and warrants violence?

Euro Saves Germany, Slaughters the PIGS, & Feeds the BLICS

As Europe's Core population collapses (and economic activity with it), the Euro and ECB seem to be serving a select few at the expense of the majority.  The imbalances and distortions will only grow as the attempts to mask who the Euro and ECB truly serve continue.  What little vitality exists is being transfused to prop up the few. 

Europe: Combating Fake News

If present demographic trends continue, in a few decades, native Swedes could easily become a minority in their own country. Swedish ambulance personnel want gas masks and bulletproof vests to protect their staff against the escalating attacks, similar to equipment used by staff working in war zones. Most dangerous, however, is our inability to deal forcefully with problems undermining Western societies, because some Western media refuse to admit that the problems exist.

Is This The Greatest 'Arb' In The World?

Since it first entered service with the Soviet army in 1948, the AK-47 and its derivatives have become the world's most widely used assault rifles. However, while demand may be high, prices vary dramatically... which gave us an idea.

This Guy Has Eight Passports

There are very few things within our power that have such a lasting, multi-generational impact. Citizenship is one of the most important.

EU Celebrates 60th Birthday As European Leaders Scramble To Hold "Fraying" Union Together

Today in Rome, the EU celebrates its 60th anniversary. The celebration comes at a strange time: four days earlier, Theresa May delivered an unprecedented blow to the bloc's growth by filing Britain's formal exit papers. The impending Brexit and tens of thousands of protesters gathering beyond the tight police cordon around the Campidoglio palace offered a more sober reminder of the challenges of holding the 27 nations to a common course.

TDB's picture

When he ran as an opposition candidate for parliament in 2011, Christian Malanga, President of the United Congolese Party, was arrested just days before the election, and held prisoner for almost two weeks. Why?

Because I was preaching what was right, rule of law, reforming government, and bringing change to the Congo. It was the principles I believed in, and what I said, that the people are starving. I was trying to empower the women and young men, the youth, and the authority did not like that, they want people to be kept in the dark.

The government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo tortured him. They beat him, and they tortured those close to him as well. He could hear his secretary scream as agents of the state raped her.
