*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- US President Don Trump's Key Ideas (See Infra) UnExpectedly Attracted Today the Votes of various Leading Senators, including those representing a Total of More than +70% of the People voting in Primaries' Presidential Elections, of Both GOP and Dems Parties, Spreading as Large as from Ted Cruz (important Republican, 2nd Front-Runner in the latest GOP's Presidential Primary), all the way up to Bernie Sanders (Independent + Twice 2nd Front-Runner in Dems' Presidential Primaries of Both 2016 and 2020), as well as Elisabeth Warren (former 3rd Dems' Candidate in the Presidential Primary 2020), and Rand Paul, (Famous Libertarian GOP Senator, son of a former Many Times Independent Presidential Candidate), etc.

This Surprizing Event took place during Today's USA Senate's "Hot" Vote on Trump's Veto to a Controversial Version of a Bill on DoD's Annual Budget for 2021, which had Erased his Main, Original Calls for an Investigation on the alleged 2020 US Presidential Election Fraud/Gross Irregularities, Against UnControlled  Censorship of Citizens at the Internet by "Big Tech" Oligo-Monopolies, (such as "Twitter", "YouTube/Google", "FaceBook", etc), as well as for Peaceful Withdrawal of USA Soldiers from various Foreign Countries accross the World, (including from Afghanistan, Somalia, Germany, etc), added to the Protection of Historic Monuments' Denominations, (etc), that he considered Related also to the Security, Sovereignity, Independence and Freedom of the Country and its People.

It's Not Yet Clear What really Attracted the Main Interest of Bernie Sanders (one of USA's most "Admired" Men, Together with ...Dalai Lama, Elon Musk, Bill Gates = 1%, etc, according to the Latest "GALLUP" : See ... ), But it's Logical and very Probable that he Agreed with Trump's wish to Protect People's Freedom of Speech at the Internet, (a Notoriously Topical Issue, where, inter alia, Also Sanders' ally, Leftist Dissident Journalist Glenn Greenwald has just Warned against a Risk of "Growing Authoritarianism" by Dems/"Socialists"), as well as with the Peaceful Withdrawal of USA Military Troops from Foreign Countries accross the World, ("Peace" Attempts against "Warlike" Aggressions being Also another Favorite of Greenwald too). And something like this Could, Naturaly, Interest Also Elisabeth Warren.

=> Together, Sanders and Warren got more than + 35% of Votes in Dems' Primaries for Presidential Candidates (Compared to Biden's 51%), and Cruz has got More than +25%, (Added to Trump's Initial 45% Back on 2016, with Much More on 2020), i.e. Totaling, approximately, more than = 105/2 = at least + 52,5% Crystal-clear Absolute Majority of actively Voting People, Nowadays !

+ To this must be Added also "Libertarian" Senator Rand Paul, who had got +4,5% at the Latest GOP's Presidential Primaries in 2016 before withdrawing, as well as Experienced Former Democrat and Later Republican Senator John Kennedy from Luisiana, Together with Young and Active Senators Tom Cotton, from Arkansas, and Josh Hawley, from Missouri, while Senior Senator Lindsay Graham, who has Strongly Supported Trump to Fight against the 2020 Electoral Fraud/Gross Irregularities, abstained.

Trump has, Already, Eyed towards Sander's Socio-Economic Electoral Base, consisting Mainly of Disadvantaged People, and Black or Hispanic Minorities, etc., as Early as Since his Landmark 2016 Cleveland Speech at Ohio's GOP Gathering for his Nomination as Official Candidate for the USA Presidency, as well as in his Inauguration Speech, on January 2017 at Washington DC, that he Also Highlighted, inter alia, in his 1st, Short but Dense Speech at the White House's Lawn, Immediately After his Surprizing Return from the Hospital, just Cured from COVID-19 Deadly Virus' Infection, aquiring Natural Immunity, right in the Middle of the Crucial 2020 US Presidential Election, (See, f.ex., at: ... + ... + ..., etc).

Ted Cruz is Now the Leader of Senators who have Just Launched a Written Petition for the Creation of a Bi-Partisan US Congress Committee, added to Supreme Court's Judges, in order to Investigate the alleged Fraud/Gross Irregularities in the 2020 Controversial US Presiderntial Election, and due to Challenge Biden's Contested Certification at US Congress' Official Session of January 6, 2021, (Parallel to a Huge Popular Demonstration at Wshington DC that Same Day, due to Express People's Protest : See .... + Infra).

+ In the MeanTime, anOther Key Draft Bill has been Tabled at USA's Federal Senate, some Days Earlier, which Adds into the Anti-Virus and Economic Stimulus Bill All Key Trump's largely Popular Ideas, which have Not Yet been adopted, including that of 2.000 $ for Each Person, (5.400 for a Typical Family), Instead of Only 600 $, among Poor/Middle-Class People, as well as the Above-Mentioned Amendments for the Creation of a Bi-Partisan Committee to Investigate alleged Fraud/Gross Irregularities in the latest, 2020 US Presidential Election, and Measures to Protect People's Freedom of Expression from UnControled Censorship at the Internet by "Big Tech" Networks, (See: ..., etc). That Draft Bill was Not Yet put at a Vote in the Senate, which Postponed its Activities until Sunday, January 3, 2021, when the New Senate will Start working.

Moreover, USA's Federal Supreme Court has fixed January 22, (i.e. just After the Initial Date for the Official Inauguration, currently Scheduled for January 20, of Whoever might, eventualy, Become USA's President during the 2021-2024 Period), for the First ever Trump's Legal Complaint at the Highest Federal level, lodged on December 20, 2020 on Pennsylvania alleged WideSpread Fraud/Gross Irregularities. + In the MeanTime, Trump's Team lodged Also a 2nd Legal Complaint at SCOTUS Level,, o December 30, 2020, against Wisconsin's Controversial Vote, among 6 Crucial "Swing" States. USA's Supreme Court has Not yet Examined, Nor Discussed, Neither Pronounced itshelf on the Merits of Any Case concerning these Controversial US Election, until Now.  These 2 First Cases, on Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, if they are Won by Trump, would provide Sufficient Electors for a Trump's eventual Win of the oberall Presidential Election, (with More than 270 Electors, Adding some among the above-mentioned Alternative Slates of Electors, which are already Ready, Since Mid-December 2020 : Comp. Supra).

+ In Addition, Meanwhile,  the competent and experienced International Organisations of OSCE and OAS prepare their Crucial, Final Reports on the Controversial 2020 US Presidential Election, which are Expected to be Published at around the Middle of January 2021, with possible Postponements for Later-on, if Developments on the Electoral Process (Including the way to Handle Legal Complaints), require to do so, as "Eurofora" learned, (See, f.ex. : ..., etc). Their Preliminary Reports and/or Press Conferences, since the immediate Aftermath of the November 3, 2020 Controversial US Presidential Elections, contain some First Critical points, (even if Real Problems had Insufficiently Surfaced yet at that Early Moment, Appearing mainly Later-on, as, f.ex., Statistical Big Anomalies, Sudden DisProportionate Last-Minute U-Turns After MidNight, Videos, Signed Testimonies and EyeWitnesses, "Dominion" Machines/Network Scandal, Lorry Full of New York Ballots, Observers Hindered, Attempts to Hide Data, Establishment Press' Biais and Web Censorship by "Big Tech", Systematic Courts' Refusals to Examine and Discuss Evidence, much More Votes than Voters, etc).

In a Recent, 2019 Precedent, it's just a Short but Sharp Criticism by OAS' Observers Mission on the Presidential Elections in Bolivia, that gave a Signal for a Series of Popular Demonstrations against Morales ("Socialist", like Biden), until he was Practicaly Obliged to Resign, some Weeks, a Month or so Later, when a Key Part of the Army and the Police Refused to Oppress the People, and reportedly Suggested, in a Press Conference, that it would be Better for the Country if he Left... And that, Despite the Fact that the Supreme Electoral Court had Examined, previously, and Rejected on the Merits, All Legal Complaints by the Opposition) !... For the Rest, the alleged Fraud/Gross Irregularities' overall Pattern was Strikinkgly Similar, on 2019, to that of USA's on 2020, (f.ex., mainly Sudden DisProportional U-Turns in Vote-Counting After MidNight, Huge Statistical ImProbabilities, etc).

Hu Jia's prize brings SAKHAROV's wife to "EuroFora" on murders of Journalists Politkofskaya, Gongadze and Adali :

- Elena Bonner : "All Journalists' murders must be fully investigated", without Double Standards.                                                                                    

During a special Mega-Event to celebrate 20 Years of SAKHAROV Prize for "Freedom of Thought", attributed in 2008 by EU Parliament to jailed Chinese Cyber-Dissident Hu JIA, the move was reinforced by strongly criticizing the persisting impunity in three cases of Journalists' Murders, such as POLITKOVSKAYA in Russia, GONGADZE in Ukraine, and ADALI in Turkish-occupied part of Cyprus.

Any bureaucratic doubt about whether Cyber-dissidents like Hu JIA might have, or not, a right to be protected as all Journalists must be, particularly when they take risks to search, find and publish original and critical News on issues of general interest to the society, could not resist to the emotion provoked by the message of his Wife, Zeng JINYAN spectacularly transmitted at a big screen in EU Parliament's hemicycle :

- "The most important and most interesting thing he did was to ... say the Truth :.. to write about the phenomena he observed... He never stopped Publishing.. on websites, so that the Public could learn about the reality .. and understand it.  In my view, this has been his greatest contribution", stressed the young wife of the jailed man, eager to cite also the cases of other critical journalists who faced various kinds of "harassment".

 - "Welcoming all those who have suffered for defending Human Rights", EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert POETTERING, who had invited to Strasbourg all former Sakharov prize-winners from various Countries throughout the World, said that "China needs Europe, and Europe needs China : A great nation" with which "we want to have a good relationship", "association and ..friendship". "But we are never going to stop our fight for Human Rights, and No Government can expect this from us".

    - "It's impossible  to achieve goals of Peace, if Human Rights are left out. In fact, Peace and Human Rights are intrinsequaly linked", added POETTERING.

    It's in this spirit that MEPs adopted, on Thursday, a Resolution denouncing that "the criminal
investigation and trial following the murder of (a) Journalist ...raises serious concerns with regard to transparency and respect for the rule of law", when a "brutal killing has not yet been fully investigated and solved in a satisfactory way".

    The text refered to dissident Journalist "Anna POLITOVSKAYA", a critic of Tchechen conflict, killed some years ago in Moscow, where Russian Authorities have found, arrested and are currently judging two executants, while also searching to arrest also a 3rd one, allegedly escaped in Belgium. But they have not yet found the instigators.

     Similar texts were adopted recently also on dissident Ukranian Journalist Georgiy GONGADZE's murder, for which Ukranian Authorities have at least found, arrested and condemned 2 executants to 12 and 13 Years of jail, but not yet the instigators. For that purpose, they recently accepted an International Experts team to participate to the investigations.     

But, it's only for the Murder of dissident Turkish Cypriot Journalist ADALI, in the occupied territories of Cyprus, that Turkey has NOT yet found ANYONE responsible, and even claimed recently inside CoE that it would be "impossible" to do so !    

These astonishing differences exist despite the fact that ECHR condemned alike Ukraine and Turkey with 2 Judgements on the same year : 2005, for the murders of  Journalists GONGADZE and ADALI, strong critics of Corruption in Ukraine, and of Ankara's policies on mass-influx of Turkish Settlers in the Occupied Territories of Cyprus, respectively.    

Regarless of that, CoE's Committee of Ministers, who is entrusted with the duty to supervise execution of ECHR's judgements, has just asked Ukraine's Government to reply to further questions on Gongadze's murder before March 2009, while Turkey, curiously, got a longer postponement for answering questions on Adali's murder, until June...   

A comparison of these cases, raises serious questions about Double Standards :

------------------------

On TRANSPARENCY :
--------------------------
    On Gongadze's murder, CoE's body speaks even about the participation of
"an INTERNATIONAL group of Experts" in the Investigation, (f.ex. of "Tape Recordings"), accepted by Ukraine.
    On the contrary, on Adali's murder, CoE is obliged to repeatedly ask (for a 2nd
time) Turkey whether, at least, it informed the victims' Family, or not...
------------------------------
- On EFFICIENCY :
-----------------------
On Gongadze's murder, CoE formally "recalls that the Committee (of Ministers) ..URGED the Ukranian authorities.. to TAKE ALL NECESSARY INVESTIGATIVE STEPS TO ACHIEVE CONCRETE and VISIBLE RESULTS in the INVESTIGATION, aimed at the Identification of the INSTIGATORS and Organisers of the Murder", and "STRONGLY INVITED the Ukranian Authorities to provide information on the PROGRESS IN THE INVESTIGATION", before MARCH 2009.

But, on Adali's murder, on the contrary, CoE's body merely .. "took note" of the "arguments presented by" Cyprus, which denounce the absence of any proof of new "investigation" by Turkey. Following Turkey's own suggestion (!), it simply "noted" that there is "no limitation period" for "any new element" to "lead potentialy (sic !) to a Re-Opening of the Investigation". Without saying who might find any such "new" fact, since Turkey stoped searching... It also POSTPONED the issue until .. JUNE  !
-----------------------
 - On the PUNISHMENT OF THOSE RESPONSIBLE :
----------------------
 -  On Gongadze's murder case, Ukranian Authorities already arrested and condemned, at least 2 suspects, to 12 and 13 Years of jail. And on Politkovskaya's murder at least 2 suspects are judged, and a 3rd one "wanted".

On the contrary, on Adali's murder case, the Turkish authorities simply claim that "it had not been possible to obtain new .. information .. on the basis of which criminal charges could be brought against ANY person" !...

Moreover,  a LETTER sent by Turkey ...2 Years after CoE's 2006 call to re-investigate anew Adali's murder case, is totally EMPTY of Facts ! As Cypus' Delegation denounced earlier, Turkey's Letter ONLY CLAIMS that a "New Investigation" was made without any result, but does NOT even cite ANY FACT to prove it :

F.ex.,on the crucial issue of the "MOTIVATIONS" behind Adali's murder, noted by ECHR, Turkey MERELY CLAIMS that "all allegations  were investigated; without result", but OMITS ANY FACT TO PROVE IT !..(It doesn't even remind which were these "allegations").. .

+ On ECHR's astonishment that the Turkish Occupation regime didn't produce any "BALLISTIC REPORT" on the Shots which murdered Adali, Turkey again repeats, 12 years later, that, still, even until now, "it  was not possible to obtain the BalisticReport"...

- As for the astonishing absence of key-WITNESSES' Testimonies, denounced by ECHR, Turkey agains repeats various pretexts avoiding to reveal anything, (Fex. that a person "left" the Occupied Territories  "on 2002", or that another witness was heard, but without revealing nothing of what he said, etc).

Turkey obviously "FAILS TO MEET THE CRITICISM made BY THE COURT" for lack of any efficient Investigation in Adali's case, concluded Cyprus' Government.
---------------------------------------------
Replying to our Question which COMPARED these 3 outstanding cases of "JOURNALISTS MURDERS", Adali, Gongadze and Politkovskaya, in order to avoid "Double Standards" by asking from Ukraine and Russia more than what is asked EU candidate Turkey, many European personalities were critical /

They criticised Ankara's recent claim at the CoE to stop investigating, because it would be "impossible to find anyone" responsible for the 5 bullet shots which killed Kutlu ADALI in front of his Family Home, contrary to the other two Journalists' murders, where Ukraine and Russia at least arrested the executants, searching now for the instigators :
----------------------------------

    - "Where was that ? In Turkish Occupied Cyprus ? WITHOUT ANY DOUBT : Any murder of Journalist should be investigated in full ! All these Murders must be investigated !", replied the famous SAKHAROV's wife, Elena BONNER to our question on Adali's case, compared to Gongadze and Politofskaya.

    Elena Bonner spoke us EXCLUSIVELY shortly after being honored by the President
of EU Parliament on the occasion of 20 Years of her husband's SAKHAROV Prize.

    A strong personality, Sakharov's wife even had to struggle against an anonymous EU staffer who, astonishingly, tried to stop her speaking when h heard our question on "Turkey" (!) : - "Please, let me translate, she continues
speaking, don't stop us !", had to cry Sakharov's daughter, (a Journalist
herself), who was translating her mothers' reply, (obliged to speak louder to
make her voice heard despite the harassment).. (= + Audio Proof !)

    Earlier, Elena Bonner also fustigated "Double Standards" at another case, on
Western countries' attitude vis a vis Kosovo and the Kurds : -F.ex. "You have
recognized a few 400.000 Kosovars as an "independent" country, but you still
deny that to 30 millions of Kurds in Turkey !", she denounced.
-----------------------------
    - "This (ADALI's murder) is an issue which should be pursued by the Committee
for Human Rights. That's why we have one, and it's its duty to examine cases of
Journalists' murders as the one you referred to. You should bring the case in
front of that Committee", suggested in reply to our question on Adali, EU
Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert POETTERING.

    - "It's impossible  to achieve goals of PEACE, if HUMAN RIGHTS are left out :
in fact, Peace and Human Rights are intrinsequaly linked", added POETTERING.
--------------------------------------
    + "For us (European/International Federation of Journalists) it's clear :
Whenever a Journalist is Murdered, the Investigation should continue until
those Responsible are found !", replied earlier to another question on ADALI
EFJ/IFJ's Secretary General, Aidan WHITE.

    Speaking as a matter of General Principle, White asked us for "concrete data"
on the execution of ECHR's judgement on Adali case, in order to "look at it in
depth" and "make a formal statement", in comparison with the other Murdered
Journalist case, also pending at CoE's  Ministers for completing its execution,
on Ukranian Gongadze.
----------------------------------------------------
     From EU Rapporteur on Human Rights, vice-President of EU Parliament Liberties' Committee, MEP Giusto CATANIA, we were told that, since there is an ECHR judgement in both Adali and Gongadge's cases, "Turkey must naturally execute the judgement and make a full and efficient investigation, until those responsible for the Journalist's murder are found and punished".

    Even if "we (Catania's "EuroLeft" Group) support Turkey's EU perspectives, this does not mean that Ankara should not behave properly. On the contrary, it means that they have to meet tough conditions, particularly on Human Rights", was added on the occasion of Adali's murder case.

    Moreover, "since you raise the issue of Mr. Adali's muder as a part of a Series of Journalist's murders, including fex. Gongadze, Politkovskaya, ao., tthen we (EU) could also act together with CoE's Commissioner on Human Rights, Thomas HAMMARBERG, it was suggested.

    - "We (EU) must step up efforts against the problem of IMPUNITY : Real Peace cannot exist without Justice",  stressed also this week at EU Parliament in Strasbourg, French Minister on Human Rights, Mrs Rama YADE.
