Democrats have been in a froth this week in the aftermath of Saturday’s contentious, and at times violent, Nevada state convention. As Rolling Stone reported Tuesday, Bernie Sanders supporters, incensed by the party’s handling of the proceedings — and the fact that Sanders failed to hold on to two pledged delegates he unexpectedly gained at the Clark County convention — clashed with Clinton supporters, who in turn called for the Sanders supporters’ arrest.
Pissed off Sanders supporters, watching the events unfold online from around the country, began circulating the personal contact information for state party chair Roberta Lange. As a result, Lange became the target of a barrage of harassment, including death threats and threats of violence sent via voicemail and text message. On Monday, the party shared many of those messages — notably, and perhaps regrettably, without redacting some of the senders’ phone numbers.

Minister and all his pool of Ministers.

as in a struggle in the mud, with his incompetence, who then in the
face of his own choices, actions and consequences, disastrous, points
the finger at the others, accuse and blame others. Here his feeling
of arrogance comes into play, at the highest levels, also calling on
the judiciary to help him fight against his own ghosts.

The “her” is Hillary Clinton. The crime for which the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee should allegedly be imprisoned isn’t clear. But the chant has become a regular part of the circus-like atmosphere at Trump rallies, a sort of calling card for the movement.
Here’s something else that happened on Thursday night: The Trump Justice Department closed its 2-year long probe into Clinton’s business dealings — including whether the Clinton Foundation received special treatment during the former first lady’s time as Secretary of State under President Barack Obama. That includes an allegation made by Trump (and some other conservatives) that Clinton had somehow steered a uranium deal to the Russians after a donation to the Clinton Foundation.
That wasn’t true then. And now an investigation authorized by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to look into potential wrongdoing by Clinton has turned up a total of zero wrongdoing of any sort by either … Read More
FOR MORE THAN THREE GENERATIONS, Mexicans have attributed the origins
of their political system to the Revolution of 1910-20. They cite the
constitution of 1917, a sweeping document that capped nearly a decade of
civil war among rival regional militias, as the foundation of their
modern political institutions and practices. Mexico’s governing
institutions and political culture also bear the imprint of three
centuries of Spanish colonial rule. Mexicans’ adherence to a highly
codified civil law tradition, their acceptance of heavy state
involvement in business and civic affairs, and the deference accorded
the executive over other branches of government can be traced to the
administrative and legal practices of the colonial period. Finally, the
traumatic experiences of the nineteenth century, including foreign
military occupations and the loss of half of the national territory to
the United States, as well as the disillusion sown by a series of
One question that always stymies us–that is, why cannot people eat people?
Rumors of cannibalism began to circulate over the internet during the early
months of last year (2001), typically accompanied by graphic photos of a Chinese
man calmly chewing on what appears to be a dismembered human fetus (see Figure 1),
together with sensational commentary along the lines of:
What u are going to witness here is a fact, don’t get scared !” It’s
Taiwan’s hottest food…” In Taiwan, dead babies or fetuses could be
bought at $50 to $70 from hospitals to meet the high demand for grilled
and barbecued babies … What a sad state of affairs!! (“Fetus”)
These internet rumors began to achieve a modicum of legitimacy in
the small Malaysian tabloid Warta Perdana fed a growing
international controversy in reporting that a certain Taiwanese restaurant was
serving a dish consisting of
iciHaiti – Politic : Site inspection tour 23/03/2020 10:34:03
On the instructions of President Jovenel Moïse, the Prime Minister, Joseph Jouthe, carried out an inspection tour last week of the works of finishing and renovation of the premises to house the Central Hospital of the National Police (HCPN) in Bon Repos, then on the construction site of 600 housing units for the benefit of agents of the National Police of Haiti (PNH), in Delmas 33 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-30182-haiti-politic-start-of-housing-construction-work-for-police-officers.html .
Accompanied by the Japanese Ambassador accredited to Haiti Mizuno Mitsuaki, members of the PNH High Staff and members of his cabinet, Jouthe urged Nader Joaséus the Minister of Public Works to instruct the National Directorate of Drinking Water and of Sanitation (DINEPA), as well as State Electricity of Haiti (EDH) to work hard to make this center operational very quickly.
In terms of community services stemming from the necessary arrangements to support the
This time around (and it’ been a bit of time since we did this) we talk to storied Political and Media Advertising icon Bob Harper. Harper has run numerous successful campaigns in this area most notably the upset victory of Stefanie Salavantis over an incumbent Democratic DA. What better guy to interview about the juxtaposition of the 2020 Presidential election and the ramifications the Coronavirus will have on it. My only regret about this interview is that you will not hear the melodious voice of Mr. Harper.
LuLac:As a political consultant of well renown, what are your thoughts of a pandemic coming in the midst of what might be the most consequential Presidential election of our time?
Harper: It will indeed play a paramount role and I think one determining factor will be which party does the best job “spinning” Trump’s leadership role – for or
