Kazakhstan's authoritarian leader Nazarbayev renames capital city after himself

There are few moves an autocrat can execute to appear even more ridiculous to the civilised regions which have electoral systems that make it possible to elect a new leader, although this system doesn't imply an actual political change or improvements in society or economy. But how the hell does one imagine that it would maintain one's legacy far beyond one's resignation either by decision or death? This is so stupid, one might send him a doctor to check if everything is still fine with him...

In the end, Kazakhstan is just another weak country which should have never become a country on its own. It has got nothing to share with the global market, nothing but oil, which will run out in the near or far future, and which is despised already, despite the odds. It should've stayed a part of Russia, so that there'll be more support for its people. Argh...

Anti-government protesters Serbian besiege national broadcaster RTS

Demonstrators have been gathering there every Saturday since December 8, routinely drawing more than 10,000 people. But protests have also taken place in some 20 cities and towns across the country.

Vucic, a former nationalist who says he wants to lead Serbia into the European Union, has denied the accusations against him.

Initially dubbed "stop to bloody shirts," the movement has recently adopted the slogan "one of 5 million," a jab at Vucic, who said after early protests he would not bow to a single demand from protesters, "even if there were 5 million of you."

Former South Korean president Chun Doo-hwan on trial before court for massacre of Gwangju

The first hearing in Chun’s trial was held on Mar. 11 in Room No. 201 of the Gwangju District Court. The decision that the court must make is whether Chun was guilty of defaming the deceased when he bashed Cho, who testified that he witnessed a helicopter attack on civilians during the Gwangju Uprising, as a “shameless liar” in a memoir published in 2017.

But this trial isn’t merely about determining whether the charges of defamation against Chun will stick. This whole time, Chun and other members of the military junta have ferociously denied the testimony by Cho and groups representing victims of the Gwangju Uprising that helicopters fired on protesters between 1 and 3 pm on May 21, 1980.

Between 1 and 5 pm on May 21, paratroopers opened fire at Geumnam Street, near the former South Jeolla Provincial Office, killing 34 civilians, but it has never been determined who gave the order to fire. In 2007, the MND’s fact-find... show more

Newly elected DRC president Felix Tshisekedi pardons 700 political prisoners

Among those set for release is Firmin Yangambi, who was sentenced in 2009 to 20 years in prison on charges of being a threat to national security. Also being freed is Franck Diongo, an opposition figure who was sentenced to five years.

He made the declaration at the beginning of March in the presence of members of the government, military, civil and judicial authorities as well as members of the diplomatic corps.

While on his first international trip to the neighbouring Republic of the Congo in February, he urged tens of thousands of political exiles to return home, saying everyone would be needed to move Congo forward. – News agencies

Former Fox News host to cooperate with HOC, receiving exception to NDA

Falzone’s lawyer, Nancy Erika Smith, told MSNBC on Thursday night that Falzone will now comply under an exception to her NDA with Fox News.

[The lawyer for Daniels at the time, Keith Davidson, tells MSNBC that Falzone did contact him while she was working on the story during the campaign with “specific details.”

Many legal experts say a legitimate Congressional request overrides a typical NDA, and even if an NDA tried to bar such cooperation, courts are unlikely to punish someone for responding to a valid investigative request for information.

Liberals either handle the border situation, or fascists take over

Clinton’s assessment of the European political situation is accurate. According to recent poll numbers, 63 percent of French people believe too many immigrants are living in their country. One-third of the British people who voted in 2016 to leave the European Union cited immigration as their primary reason. In Germany, 38 percent rate immigration as the most important issue facing their country. Thanks in great part to their anti-immigration messages, populist parties now govern Italy, Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic.

Across the developed world, very high levels of immigration have coincided with widening class divisions, the discrediting of political and economic elites, and the rise of extremist politics. And immigration pressures will only intensify in the decades ahead, for reasons obscured by media coverage of immigrants as poor and desperate.

Since 1990, the number of human beings living in extreme poverty—defined as less than $2 a day... show more

On Meghan McCain and Affirmative Action

Regardless, it’s important to note that the lawsuit she mentioned has been shaped by Edward Blum, the same anti-affirmative action idiot involved in Abigail Fisher’s lawsuit against the University of Texas at Austin, in which she argued she wasn’t accepted to the university because non-white students admitted preferentially stole her spot. In 2016, the Supreme Court decided that this argument was bullshit, but now Blum’s at it again.

Joy Behar then criticized legacy admissions overall, which McCain then also made about herself by defending legacy admission to the Naval Academy. Behar responded by reminding her legacy admissions were used “to keep non-white people, and Jews probably, out of the colleges.” And to that, McCain had nothing.
