MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough on Friday sounded off on the GOP’s continued support of former President Donald Trump. This comes in response to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) saying Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) is engaging in “cancel culture” for voting to impeach Trump for his role in the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. Scarborough, noting McCarthy, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley want to continue meeting with Trump, questioned how “sick” and “gutless” the GOP is to still support him. “I don’t really understand when it was Kevin McCarthy who was on the phone screaming at Donald Trump when he feared for his life. It was Kevin McCarthy begging the terrorists that Donald Trump call down the terrorists and stop the terrorists from attacking. And Donald Trump refused to do it. And when Kevin got angry, Donald Trump said, well, I guess those attackers, I guess they’re more upset about the election than you are, Kevin. … [Read more...] about Scarborough: How ‘Sick,’ ‘Gutless’ Is the GOP to Still Support Trump?

A group of Russian diplomats and their families travelled home from their embassy in North Korea this week via an unusual mode of transportation — a hand-pushed railcar. CNN reported Friday that due to the border and flight restrictions imposed by North Korea during the coronavirus pandemic, eight employees at the Russian Embassy in Pyongyang were left stranded for months. The Russian families spent a total of 32 hours this week on North Korea’s outdated rail system, followed by a two-hour bus ride closer to the border. ADVERTISEMENT From there, the Russians used a manual railcar loaded with their children and luggage across the final 0.6 miles that separates their country from North Korea. Video and pictures of the families showed them manually pushing the car from behind as they crossed over the border Thursday.

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND - A U.N. human rights expert is calling for an urgent investigation into allegations that Eritrean forces have forcibly repatriated Eritrean refugees who were living in northern Ethiopia’s Tigray province. His report has been submitted to the U.N. Human Rights Council. The special rapporteur on the human rights situation in Eritrea, Mohamed Abdelsalam Babiker, started his mandate on November 1. An Ethiopian military offensive began in Tigray November 4 after months of rising tensions between Addis Ababa and forces of the Tigrayan People’s Liberation Front, or TPLF. When the conflict erupted, he said more than 96,000 Eritrean refugees were in four camps. Addressing the Human rights Council on Wednesday, Babiker said he has received information from credible sources about the precarious situation of Eritrean refugees and asylum seekers in the province. “I am also concerned about allegations of possible implication of the Eritrean troops in cases of serious human … [Read more...] about UN Investigator Probes Alleged Forced Return of Eritrean Refugees from Ethiopia
