Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

Nicola Ferguson Sturgeon is a Scottish politician who is the fifth and current First Minister of Scotland and the leader of the Scottish National Party, in office since 2014. She is the first woman to hold either position. In the past, Sturgeon faced criticism for endorsing Hillary Clinton during the U.S. presidential election. But a day after issuing a statement congratulating Donald Trump as “a brief introductory conversation,” she stood by her earlier criticism of the president-elect, saying that she would have felt guilty saying nothing in the face Trump’s “deeply abhorrent” rhetoric. Trump’s election has an impact on all […]

Ordering a Plate of Dog Meat at a Restaurant Would be Repelling to Most People: Not So in Some Parts of the World

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

For most of the civilized world, the thought of ordering a plate of dog meat at a restaurant is repelling. It wouldn’t matter if the dog were cooked in strategic fashion from recipes handed down through generations, the idea would be obnoxious and seemingly inhumane. “This is the sickening reality of the brutal dog meat trade in South Korea. More than 200 pups are stuffed into filthy rusting cages, fed on scraps before being dragged to the slaughterhouse. This hell exists for 2.5 million dogs across 17,000 farms in the country.” In a disturbing article, the Mirror reports on “the differing […]

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

Donald Trump took a call from Taiwanese president Tsai Ing-wen. She called to congratulate Trump and to express confidence in a future economic relationship between the two countries. The call was unusual in the sense that it was the first time a Taiwanese president has spoken with a US President or President-elect since official diplomatic ties between the two nations were severed in 1979. China is perturbed over the call and issued a formal complaint with the United States. “We have noticed relevant reports and lodged solemn representation with the relevant side in the United States,” foreign ministry spokesman Geng […]

The “Quiet Majority” May Send Le Pen To Élysée Palace Just As They Sent Trump to The Whitehouse

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

Many voters in France are throwing their support behind Marine Le Pen in next year’s presidential election in France. But much like the “quiet” voters who supported Donald Trump in the United States, not all of them are broadcasting their inclinations. These voters do not desire to be labeled xenophobic or racists, so for the most part, they will wait until it comes time to cast their votes in private.  Ms. Le Pen finds herself occasionally dissociating herself from her father, Jean-Marie Le Pen’s anti-Semitic and racial image he was tagged with during his leadership of the FN party for […]
