Haiti ‘s Presidential assassination may have been part of a larger coup: Report

Haiti has some shocking information for the world -- all fingers responsible for the assassination of its President appear to be at the doorstep of the Americans. According to the country's national police chief, it is understood that Christian Emmanuel Sanon, 63 (the Florida resident believed to be the conspirator here) apparently had visited the country numerous times leading up to the attack. Sanon is also believed to have been essentially a part of what amounts to a coup for power over the island country, though, that coup appears to have failed because the plot was obviously foiled. But now Sanon must answer to Haitian authorities who say this was a politically motivated attack governed by his thirst for power. Power that Sanon falsely appears to claim belongs to him. ...

Russia wants America to extradite supposed criminals to the federation, but that could be a bad idea altogether

Ahead of Joe Biden and Vladamir Putin meeting to discuss a number of things --- Russia 's Vladamir Putin has openly claimed that he is willing to work with the bewildered American President. Work that some say appears to be yet another case of manipulation by the Russian leader, who, is widely known for his tactics to secure what he wants and then turn his back on others. Russian State media reports that Putin made the comments ahead of the meeting. Comments that appear to suggest that Putin is ready and willing to extradite supposed Russian hackers (those that hacked the U.S meat plant and the gas line for example) to the United States. For Russia to complete such a mission though, Putin claims that America must be willing to do the same for any Americans or others accused of...

Those confessional videos in Belarus are getting pretty weird, but nobody knows exactly what’s going on

The supposed confessional videos of Roman Protasevich and his girlfriend Sofia out of Belarus read like the inserts to a thriller novel. But as many are wondering what exactly is going on, critics worry that Lukashenko 's regime is torturing them but not being honest about it. https://www.youtube.com/embed/KHPqtiarTmw It is unclear what Sofia is actually saying in this video due to it not being translated before being posted online.  "I am ... editor of Telegram channel Chernaya Kniga, which publishes private information about internal affairs officers," she said in the clip which was about as far as we could get per a reader who helped us translate the video. It is unclear their current status even as world leaders are demanding answers from Lukashenko.

REPORT: The military in Myanmar, in an extraordinary fashion, has seized power in a coup

Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar -- As Monday continues to get underway the rest of the world is finding out that military-clad men have seized control of Myanmar (also known as Burma) in an extraordinary coup. A coup powered by claims of supposed election fraud that don't appear to be backed up by any tangible evidence against the ruling party also known as the NLD (National League for Democracy.) In the early morning hours of Monday, Aung San Suu Kyi and other top leaders were detained in military led raids on their homes and official residences as the military sought to overthrow the government. The military maintains that Suu Kyi and her NLD party somehow committed election fraud by counting votes from "voters that simply did not exist." Several reports point out that the military has ...

Russian opposition critic Navalny has been detained in Moscow: Reports

Will Russia ever allow space for a Democratic voice? Between a standoff with the Kremlin and the fact Russia allegedly poisoned him -- one would think Navalny would've never turned to Moscow. But on Sunday that was reported to not be the case after Navalny arrived in Moscow from Germany via airplane. According to a spokesperson for Navalny, he willingly returned to Moscow to face an apparent probation violation of some sort dating back to nearly 2014. Navalny has brought a a much larger discussion about life in Russia to the forefront of global discussions. Vladamir Putin, one of the world's most notorious dictators, otherwise would prefer that not to be the case. If the Kremlin had no role in his arrest why was his arrival airport randomly changed by the government? Man...

Iran has issued an arrest warrant for Donald J. Trump

Turns out Donald Trump 's legal issues are only going to get worse as his departure from office approaches. According to Iranian state media, Iranian officials have issued an arrest warrant with a charge of premeditated murder in the death of Gen. Qassem Soleimani. The warrant is unlikely to actually be carried out because the chances of Trump ever going to Iran are very slim. It likely will remain symbolic in nature in the waning day's of Trump 's presidency and the type of trouble awaiting him once he finally leaves office and is no longer afforded the protection's of an apparent world leader.

America is trying to blackmail the Sudanese government

On Wednesday it emerged that the American government (aka the Trump Administration just so we're completely clear here) wants to remove Sudan from the list of those countries sanctioned. However, per reports, that move comes with a very large caveat that some Sudanese locals are calling foul on. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stands with Sudanese Gen. Abdel-Fattah Burhan Khartoum, Sudan, on Tuesday.   (Sudanese Cabinet via AP) According to the Secretary of State 's office (whom is in Khartoum on official biz), the Americans are demanding that Sudan pay $330m+ in an effort to be removed from the list as a whole.

As civil unrest grows, America must answer for yet another senseless murder of the unarmed #GeorgeFloyd

And rightfully so. In 2020 ---- black people are still terrified of law enforcement and still being ruthlessly murdered by overzealous and otherwise racist cops who more often than not believe they'll get away with it. Financial settlements don't bring back lives. Real change prevents lives from being lost. Anadolu Agency via Getty Images George Floyd for those who may just now be clocking into the story was an African American man in Minneapolis who was killed by a white officer after he was suffocated to death (intentionally we might add.) Floyd 's murder is not only the latest in a long line of murders of unarmed Black American citizens --- it is the shining example of how many Black Americans are often forced to live in fear. The truth about these murders is tha...

World Premier of Sing! Goddess

Greek mythology is something I have been fascinated with since elementary school. I remember there was one book, the only one of its kind, in the school library that I still have yet to return. Yikes! Those late fees are most likely outstandingly gross. Ines Braun & Erin Capistrano have created a work that is all-encompassing of what a night out to the theater should feel like, bringing together of communities through storytelling. Braun and Capistrano's new work takes audiences on a journey of how would the forces or powers to operate if there were no male head figure involved. The duo craft of adding complex layers of richness by embodying the goddesses with the actors' humanity makes for both entertaining and educational theater. Having worked with Ines and Erin before, I know very ...

Luxembourg to make all public transit free

Starting next year. In what we've found to be the first move it's kind anywhere in the world, Luxembourg, has announced that next year sweeping changes are coming. The Office of the Prime Minister announced that public transit will become free next year. As of now, riders pay a flat fee of $2.50 for their four hour destination. But, the PM, feels that such should be free -- and will be paid for by removing otherwise known subsidies and tax breaks. The move is expected to have significant improvements to the country's congested transit system.
