Thus, European foreign policy does not defend the interests of the European citizens, but those of the US government.

The annual Davos vanity fair took place this week with its usual parade of paradigms of political correctness. Although the vast majority of attendees are mere extras, its character as an elitist club undoubtedly lends it pomp and power. What is discussed at the World Economic Forum?

It’s been over a year since the first covid restrictions were imposed, and I wonder how long will Spaniards continue to be held hostage by their political class. A state of emergency criticized by prestigious constitutional experts and justices but defended to the hilt by the government and de facto by the main non-opposition party...
