German Defence Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer is said to be considering a massive restructure to the elite Special Forces Command (KSK) Bundeswehr unit after a series of far-right extremist allegations involving the unit’s members. Information from the Defense Committee of the Bundestag has revealed that at least one company of the unit–consisting of 70 soldiers—is to be dissolved but Kramp-Karrenbauer rejected calls for completely dissolving the army’s special forces, saying that they were still needed. Formed in 1996, the KSK is a specialised elite unit that deals with hostage situations in foreign war zones, which allowed Germany to operate without

Why have a military if your forces are not nationalist? Muster instead a corps of social workers to welcome a replacement demographic across the imaginary national border, more or less as the USA has done for decades.

"Far right extremists", like Germans who don't want the country taken over by foreigners who rape their women? That is what AfD political party supports. Now it is apparently illegal for a member of the military to support any political party except the leftist, pro-destruction Merkel's party? "Nationalist view"....you mean like 'are patriots", gee how could that happen? I doubt very much the claims of radical Muslims in the group, that is almost guaranteed a smoke screen.

How much did Germany cost the entire world n the 20th Century? How man lives? And what was the impact on delaying or deferring advances in civilization? Culture counts!

That should be: Kommando Spezialkräfte (KSK) The GSG-9 Special Police Force had to be formed after the ill-fated 1972 Munich Olympics terrorist attack and were of no help when Germany had to rescue German nationals from the Rwandan massacres in 1994, which had to be done by the Belgian Para-Commandos. Should there be another such incident whom can Germany call? Their Kumbaya Kommandos?

This sounds like a lot of concern over not very much. Better to fight beside nationalists than politically correct, sexually confused people of questionable loyalties. #6, the Germans cost the world millions of lives during their WW2 aggression but out of the demands of war the jet engine was perfected and their rocket science was so advanced that both the US (Wernher von Braun) and Russia stole their scientists for their own space programs. Also the VW Beetle. If Hitler had not been an evil madman, he might have achieved his goal of German greatness without killing and destroying half of Europe.

Homicides in Memphis are up more than 30% percent compared to this time last year. While the number is alarming, a different statistic is even more brutal—18 children and teens have been killed in 2020. So far this year, 120 Memphians have been killed in unjustifiable homicides, up from 92 at the same point last year, per city data. Officials in Memphis begged the public Wednesday for both information and further community involvement in measures like neighborhood watches and community programming.(Snip) Of the 18 children and teens killed this year, 14 were murdered and three were killed in accidental shootings.

More than 100 lawmakers are urging the U.S. Department of Defense to immediately end the military ban on transgender troops put in place by the Trump administration in 2019. On Wednesday, Rep.

Trenton, N.J.—New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy joined the leaders of both houses of the state legislature in supporting the phasing out of the title of "freeholder" within state government, calling it an "outdated designation." Freeholders are a unique part of the state's political system. The term comes from the Garden State's first constitution which was written in 1776 and declared a county representative must be worth "50 pounds proclamation money, clear estate in the same and have resided in the county in which they claim a vote for twelve months immediately preceding the election."(Snip) “As our nation tears down symbols of injustice,

The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that a large swath of eastern Oklahoma is actually an Indian reservation belonging to the Muscogee (Creek) Nation, meaning that hundreds of prosecutions could be tossed because the state does not have jurisdiction there, including in part of Tulsa. The 5-4 decision notes that only federal prosecutors have jurisdiction over American Indians on the reservation, which includes most of Tulsa, the state’s second-largest city. Justice Neil M. Gorsuch joined the court’s four liberal justices in the majority decision in McGirt v. Oklahoma.(Snip) The federal government established the reservation in the 1830s with the Creek

Footage posted online this week captured the moment a vandal sprayed graffiti outside a Lower Manhattan courthouse, right under the noses of several cops—who do nothing but watch. The video, posted by the Sergeants’ Benevolent Association on Tuesday and taken in broad daylight, shows the man tagging the base of a lamppost in front of the Surrogate’s Courthouse at 31 Chambers St., which had already been vandalized amid Occupy City Hall protests last week.

Democratic presidential candidate Joseph R. Biden on Wednesday formally embraced citizenship rights for 11 million illegal immigrants and a full erasure of all of President Trump’s get-tough border policies, as part of the party’s new unity platform. He would expand sanctuary locations, limit ICE’s ability to deport criminals in local jails, and reverse deportations for some military veterans already ousted because of criminal records.(Snip) The unity platform, developed by backers of Mr. Biden and one-time chief rival Sen.

If Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth eventually becomes Joe Biden’s vice presidential nominee, pundits and historians will look back to Independence Day weekend for the moment when her campaign jumped from insider gossip to mainstream appeal. Duckworth has long been considered an outside contender for the vice presidency. Her resumé is a Democratic dream: a combat veteran of the Iraq War, Duckworth sacrificed her legs in service to her country. After entering the House of Representatives in 2006 — flipping a Republican district long held by the abhorrent Henry Hyde, no less — Duckworth established herself as a progressive legislator and
