In the open letter, signed by 26 governors Monday, they said the crisis now extends beyond every state and requires immediate action before it gets even worse. The governors also said the situation has endangered public health and safety in their states by opening the floodgates to human trafficking as well as drug smuggling. Acc

REUTERS/Evgenia Novozhenina Opponnents accused Russian authorities of mass fraud on Monday after the ruling United Russia party, which supports President Vladimir Putin, won a bigger than expected parliamentary majority despite unease over living standards. With 99.9% of ballots counted, the Central Election Commission said United Russia had won nearly 50% of the vote, with its nearest rival, the Communist Party, taking just under 19%. The scale of the victory means United Russia will have more than two-thirds of deputies in the 450-seat State Duma lower house of parliament. This will enable it to continue to push through laws without having to rely on other parties. United Russia, a party that Putin helped found, had always been expected to win. Its most vociferous critics, allies of jailed Kr

(AP Photo/John Bazemore, File) The battle for election integrity in Georgia is moving full-speed ahead. A court hearing in Fulton County is set to begin Monday to determine whether attorneys can investigate mail-in ballots. According to Georgia state Sen. Burt Jones (R), taxpayers deserve to see if the 147,000 absentee ballots in the Peach State’s most populous county were counted dishonestly. “We’ve got to get people’s confidence back in the election process and the only way to do that is have a mass overhaul of how, particularly the 2020 election was was run,” he stated. “And it should be a partisan issue.” In Fulton County, at least 385 absentee ballot transfer forms are still reportedly missing, which would account for about 18,901 votes. This came after Joe Biden won this state by less than 12,000 votes. “I thin

During an  interview Sunday, he criticized a number of decisions made by the administration on Afghanistan, including what resulted in the deaths of civilians and Americans in the country. “This is a debacle that didn’t have to be and has real ramifications for American security as we move forward,” Pompeo stated. “The threat from terrorism from abroad is certainly increased now.” He added what occurred after the set date to leave the country was a sign of “stubbornness” on behalf of Joe Biden. “He could see that the Taliban were going to take over and the government in Kabul was going to fall; he chose not t

Pentagon Calls Kabul Strike ‘Tragic Mistake’

The Pentagon retreated from its defense of a drone strike that killed multiple civilians in Afghanistan last month, announcing Friday, Sept. 17, that a review revealed that only civilians were killed in the attack, not an Islamic State extremist as first believed. (AP Photo/Khwaja Tawfiq Sediqi, File) The Pentagon admitted that a drone strike in Afghanistan was a “tragic mistake” after the Biden administration hailed it as “righteous” for weeks. An apology from the U.S. appears to mean little to Kabul residents who are now mourning after the strike killed 10 people last month. Seven of those casualties were children. Sone Kabul resident said the attack should have never happened in a residential area. They have called for the perpetrators to be punished for their actions and suggested the victims deserve compensation. Head of the U.S. Central Com

Sophia Dickson and Onyeji Nnaji on 'The Routes of Igbo Exodus'

Image
In a paper titled, The History and Origin of the Igbo People in Nigeria by Sophia Dickson, it was claimed that one of the reasons why the Imo, Abia areas are called the Igbo heartland was that the area was the first place the Igbo people settled when they travelled from the African Great Lakes and Mountains of the Moon of  East and Central Africa. Sophia made the whole history work  laughable when she inked that evidence of this migration was unearthed in Nsukka, evident with potteries carbon-dated back to 4500BCE. The worst part of her document states that the Igbo migration took effect in about 5000BCE. She wrote thus: "The Kwa people's first areas of settlement in Igboland was the North Central uplands (Nsukka-Afikpo-Awka-Orlu) around 5000BCE...." She claimed that evidence of this movement was found on the potteries found in Nsukka which were carbon rated to have existed around 4500BCE. There is evidence that the ancestors of the Igbo people and most of their neighbor
