Hitler’s autobiography ‘Mein Kampf’ joins Imperial Rescript’s return to classrooms… Actually, a lot has happened in Japan recently with the militarists dashing madly to bring Japan back to being a “normal nation”, meaning precisely what it was before it started the invasion of China （1937） and WWII. The push is led by Prime Minister Shinzo […]
This isn’t a joke, those are the top candidates to be the next President of France. And who does this picture remind us of? hmmmmm. French Elections: After Brexit and Trump, France is now saying “Hold My Beer.” The latest polls out of the French Presidential election are showing a 4-way race between a Nationalist […]
With the cultural residue of the scandal known as Pizzagate very much still clinging to the collective consciousness, we are seeing a drastic uptick in interest regarding cases of elite or “VIP” pedophilia and human trafficking cases.

Ivanka Trump’s daughter, Arabella sang a song, recited the 3-character primer, and a Tang Dynasty poem in Chinese for President Xi Jingping and Madame Peng Liyuan. It is going viral in China.

The official triggering of Article 50 is underway, setting the Brexit into motion.
