Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Sunday repeated his comparison of the Trump administration to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler''s Third Reich."There is so much that is resonant of the Third Reich in this administration. Whether it is attempting to ban all people of one religion and saying that Muslims are somehow inherently dangerous or defective or disqualified," O'Rourke said. "Outside of Nazi Germany, it is hard for me to find another modern democracy that had the audacity to say something like this and then this idea from Goebbels and Hitler that the bigger the lie and the more often you repeat it, the more likely people are to believe it. That is Donald Trump to a tee."

Based on the novel Caging Skies by Christine Leunens, Jojo Rabbit is set in Germany during the final year of World War II and tells the story of Johannes Jojo Betzler (played by the impressive Roman Griffin Davis), a passionate, 10 year old boy who wants nothing more than to conform to the demands of Hitler Youth and to be a true, little patriot of Nazi Germany. The Nazi ideology is so overbearing and blinding for Jojo that he manifests an imaginary version of the F hrer, who continuously appears to provide counsel for the boy and is played by Waititi himself.After an unfortunate pipe bomb incident at a training camp and persistent bullying by other members of the Hitler Youth when he refuses to strangle a rabbit, Jojo is forced to spend more time at home with his mother - Rosie (Scarlett Johansson). During his rehabilitation, he collects scrap metal in a robot costume and goes swimming with his imaginary Adolf Hitler. For Jojo, everything is perfectly revolving around the fascist ideology that s dominating the country. But, unbeknownst to him, the allies are slowing closing in on Germany and, consequently, are threatening to overthrow everything that Jojo reveres. And one night, this is pushed further when Jojo discovers Elsa Korr (Thomasin McKenzie, last seen captivating spectators in Leave No Trace), a young Jewish woman, who has been harboured by his mother in his dead sister s room. Jojo is then positioned in a convoluted situation where he must begin to neglect his deep rooted ideology - that Jews are inhuman and have devil horns for the welfare of his mother and himself.

Growth Drivers and Industry Trends:The researchers have added driving factors behind market, challenges, and restraints. Growth in demand from end user industries is projected to provide boundless growth opportunities to the industry players. The global Topological Quantum Computing market has been geographically segmented into North America (United States, Canada and Mexico), Europe (Germany, France, UK, Russia and Italy), Asia Pacific (China, Japan, Korea, India and Southeast Asia), South America (Brazil, Argentina, Colombia), Middle East and Africa (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt, Nigeria and South Africa). Each region is analyzed along with its product price, profit, capacity, production, supply, demand, and market growth rate and forecast, etc. According to study researchers, an increase in competition from regional players and regulatory framework across different areas of the world could restrain the market growth in the future.
Jerusalem: A short handwritten letter by Mahatma Gandhi 80 years ago on the same day the World War II broke out, wishing the ”afflicted (Jewish) people ” an ”era of peace ”, has been unveiled for the first time by the National Library of Israel. Gandhi wrote the letter to Head of the Bombay Zionist Association (BZA) A.E. Shohet, who was trying to enlist support of Indian leaders in favour of the movement to establish a national home for the Jewish people. Writ ten on the occasion of Rosh Hashana (Jewish new year) on September 1, 1939, the letter also marked the beginning of the World War II when Germany invaded Poland, setting the stage for the despicable atrocities of the Holocaust.
Macron is essentially the only leader on the Continent who is capable of restoring the former glory of the European community, maintaining proper and friendly relations with all camps and sides, and negotiating directly and equally with the leaders of the great powers as a fair and ultimate mediator. Macron has held this ambition ever since he moved into politics and was appointed as finance minister in the previous socialist government. He aims in particular to regain France s reputation as a political, economic, and cultural force that is not dependent upon the superpowers. He seeks to . . . return to the doctrine of Charles de Gaulle, which entails following an independent foreign policy that will conform to that of the United States and the West only when it is in the interests of France.There is no doubt that President Macron s primary motivation is economic and the preservation of France s interests. It should be noted that since the imposition of new sanctions following the U.S. withdrawal from the Vienna agreement, the export of French products to Iran has fallen by 42 percent. France is the third largest exporter to Iran in Europe after Germany and Italy. At the end of 2018, the value of commerce between the two countries stood at 2.4 billion euros. Apart from investments in the country to establish transportation and electricity infrastructures, France exports raw materials and electronics, agricultural machinery, and medicines.
THOMAS COOK, a British travel agency, began life in July 1841 offering day trips to teetotallers between Leicester and Loughborough. In its heyday it counted Mark Twain, Rudyard Kipling and Winston Churchill among its customers before evolving into a leading modern package holiday firm. But its story ended ignominiously with holidaymakers being locked in a Tunisian hotel by security guards demanding that they pay again for their rooms if they wanted to go home.The world s oldest holiday company collapsed on September 23rd after a decade of financial troubles. It leaves behind just one fully integrated tour operator in Europe that still owns shops, airliners and hotels itself: TUI of Germany.

Key point: Much of our WWII history makes assumptions or simplifies what happened. For instance, horses were still widely used in addition to mechanized units. The Second World War remains an enduringly fascinating subject, but despite the large number of films, documentaries, books and even comics on the subject, our understanding of this catastrophic conflict, even seven decades on, remains heavily dependent on conventional wisdom, propaganda and an interpretation skewed by the information available. In my new book The War in the West: Germany Ascendant 1939 1941, first in a three volume history, I am challenging a number of long held assumptions about the war, many of which are based on truth by common knowledge, rather than through detailed and painstaking research.My Damascene moment came some years ago when I was being given a tour of the Small Arms Unit at the British Staff College at Shrivenham. I was glancing at a German MG42, known as a Spandau by the Allies. Of course, that was the best machine gun of the war, I commented, relaying what I d read in many books. Says who? Says who? retorted my guide and head of the unit, John Starling. In the next few minutes, he proceeded to deconstruct everything I thought I knew about this infamous weapon: that its phenomenal rate of fire caused massive problems of over heating, that it was widely inaccurate (for which having since fired one, I can now vouch), that is was incredibly expensive to manufacture, massively over engineered and lacked certain simple additions that would have made its handling so much easier. The men supporting this weapon not only had to carry vast amounts of ammunition to feed this thirsty beast, they also had to lumber around six spare barrels because of its readiness to over heat. And each barrel bore multiple inspection stamps. Which were, John told me, an utter waste of time in the middle of total war. Also From TNI: Donald Trump: The Worst President Ever? Also From TNI: Donald Trump: Best President Ever? Also From TNI: Why Japan Really Lost Pearl Harbor I was gobsmacked, but this visit led me down an entirely new line of research, and one that was equally revelatory. I began to realize that almost everything the Germans made was over engineered, from the tanks to gas mask cases to the field jacket of the lowly landser. Eventually, in the German military archives in Freiburg in the Black Forest, I found a memo from early December 1941, signed by Hitler, in which was the line, From now on, we have to stop making such complete and aesthetic weapons. In other words, up to that point, they had been consciously doing so. Needless to say, his instruction was not followed; those all metal, finely designed yet cumbersome and utterly pointless cylindrical gas mask cases were made right up to the end of the war, while still to come was the Panther tank, not to mention the Tiger, with its Porsche designed six speed hydraulically controlled semi automatic pre selector gear box, as complicated and sophisticated as it sounds and entirely unsuitable for front line combat or use by poorly trained young drivers. The transmission on a U.S. built Sherman tank was a robust four speed manual, simply made in vast numbers. America built 74,000 Sherman hulls and engines; Germany built just 1,347 Tigers. Studying such things in detail meant I was now looking at the operational level of war. Any conflict or business for that matter is understood to be conducted on three levels. The first is the strategic that is, the overall aims and ambitions. The second is the tactical: the coal face, the actual fighting, the pilot in his Spitfire or man in his tank. And the third is the operational the nuts and bolts, the logistics, economics and the supply of war. Almost every narrative history of the war ever published almost entirely concentrates on the strategic and tactical levels, but gives scant regard to the operational, and the result is a skewed version of events, in which German machine guns reign supreme and Tiger tanks always come out on top. Studying the operational level as well, however, provides a revelatory perspective. Suddenly it s not just about tactical flair, but about so much more. Britain, for example, decided to fight a highly mechanical and technological war. Steel not flesh was the mantra and that s why the British had a small army, yet still ensured it was 100 percent mechanized. They also developed a vast air force and built a staggering 132,500 aircraft during the war and that s 50,000 more than the Germans. Until the start of 1944, the priority for manpower in Britain was not the army or navy or even air force, but the Ministry of Aircraft Production. Well fed men and women were kept in the factories. Germany, on the other hand, was very under mechanized but had a vast army, which meant it was dependent on horse power and foot slogging infantrymen. As a result of so many German men at the front, their factories were manned by slaves and POWs, who were underfed and treated abominably, and whose production capacity was affected as a result. And if the ability to supply war was key, then in the war in the West, it was the Battle of the Atlantic that was the decisive theater. Yet Germany built a surface fleet before the war, which could never hope to rival Britain or France and in doing so neglected the U boat arm. Despite sinking substantial amounts of British supplies in 1940, it was still nothing like enough to even remotely force Britain to her knees. In truth, there were never enough U boats to more than dent the flow of shipping to Britain. In fact, out of 18,772 sailings in 1940, they sank just 127 ships, that is, 0.7 percent, and 1.4 percent in the entire war. Also From TNI: What Happens If North Korea Nuked Washington? Also From TNI: Iran s Military Could Hurt the U.S. in a War Suddenly, rather than appearing like David against Goliath and backs to the walls amateurs as is so often depicted, Britain emerges once again as a global super power in command of the largest trading empire the world has ever seen, while Germany, despite impressive victories on land early in the war appears to be woefully under resourced and flagrantly squandering what supplies it could call upon. What s more, after the initial glut of conquest booty, the occupied territories swiftly became a drain and burden that had to be manned and which proved a further drain on precious resources. The words Teutonic and efficiency usually go together; in the Second World War, nothing could have been farther from the truth. Image: Wikipedia.
