That God’s only begotten son can not make it clear he is the Messiah of the Jews – is a GREAT LIE – that dovetails with millions of Christians wanting to believe the Democrats stole the election. THESE LIARS have taken over the Republican Party founded by Radical Forty-eighters who believed this –
Romantic nationalism (also national romanticism, organic nationalism, identity nationalism) is the form of nationalism in which the state derives its political legitimacy as an organic consequence of the unity of those it governs. This includes such factors as language, race, ethnicity, culture, religion, and customs of the nation in its primal sense of those who were born within its culture. It can be applied to ethnic nationalism as well as civic nationalism. Romantic nationalism arose in reaction to dynastic or imperial hegemony, which assessed the legitimacy of the state from the top down, emanating from a monarch or other authority, which justified its existence. Such downward-radiating power might ultimately derive from a god or gods (see the divine right of kings and the Mandate of Heaven).
California Gov. Gavin Newsom previewed a plan to lure businesses to California from states that ban abortion on Wednesday, as well as new proposed spending on abortions.
Newsom said his plan aims to “solidify California’s leadership on abortion rights.”
“California will not stand idly by as extremists roll back our basic constitutional rights,” he wrote in a statement. “We’re going to fight like hell, making sure that all women — not just those in California — know that this state continues to recognize and protect their fundamental rights.”
The governor’s office said Newsom wants to update California’s business incentive programs to give special consideration to companies leaving states with anti-abortion or anti-LGBT laws. California currently offers hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks for businesses, including $180 million for a program called California Competes, which aims to attract and retain businesses in the Golden State.
Newsom’s office wouldn’t say which incentive programs would be affected. Spokesman Alex Stack said Newsom would give more details on Friday, when he unveils his full revised budget plan.
HELSINKI (AP) — Finland’s leaders said Thursday they’re in favor of rapidly applying for NATO membership, paving the way for a historic expansion of the alliance that could deal a serious blow to Russia as its military struggles with its war in Ukraine.
The United Kingdom has pledged to defend Sweden if the country came under attack, with Prime Ministers Boris Johnson and Magdalena Andersson signing a security assurance deal outside Stockholm.
The accord was signed on Wednesday as Sweden and Finland are pondering whether to join NATO following Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine on February 24.
Babbel Andersson said Russia would increase its “military presence in this region if Sweden and/or Finland sends in an application”.
Should they apply, there will be an interim period lasting from when an application has been handed in until all 30 NATO members’ parliaments have ratified it.
Johnson is later expected to make a similar defence commitment to Finland, where he will meet President Sauli Niinisto.
The agreement will “fortify Northern Europe’s defences, in the face of renewed threats”, Johnson said in a statement, adding it “is a symbol of the everlasting assurance between our nations”.
“These are not a short-term stop-gap, but a long-term commitment to bolster military ties and global stability, and fortify Europe’s defences for generations to come,” Johnson said in the statement.
Following a depressing round of speeches in which one Republican senator compared fetuses to sea turtle eggs, the Senate failed to codify the right to abortion for Americans, yet again, on Wednesday afternoon. The Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA), a bill that would essentially enshrine Roe v. Wade in federal law, failed to pass the threshold to open debate. The Senate Floor was mostly empty during the vote, except for a gallery full of young congressional staffers—those of reproductive age, it seems—watching their rights go unprotected.
