    This past week, 2018 Nobel Peace Prize laureate Nadia Murad was the latest victim of the West’s cancel culture, as she was disinvited from a book event by Canada’s Toronto District School Board. Alongside colonialism, imperialism, and nation-building, “cancel culture” is the latest of toxic Western ideas to be foisted upon the Middle East. This past week, 2018 Nobel Peace Prize laureate Nadia Murad was the latest victim of the West’s cancel culture, as she was disinvited from a book event by Canada’s Toronto District School Board. This may sound trivial, but it’s a big deal. Murad is a member...

    JOHANNESBURG (AP) — F.W. de Klerk, who shared the Nobel Peace Prize with Nelson Mandela and as South Africa’s last apartheid president oversaw the end of the country’s white minority rule, has died at the age of 85. De Klerk died after a battle against cancer at his home in the Fresnaye area of Cape Town, a spokesman for the F.W. de Klerk Foundation confirmed on Thursday. De Klerk was a controversial figure in South Africa where many blamed him for violence against Black South Africans and anti-apartheid activists during his time in power, while some whites saw his efforts...

    I would like to nominate President Joe Biden for the Nobel Peace Prize. Wait, here me out! If he wasn't the President, we would not have the information that the combination of drugs from the FLCCC Alliance would help prevent and/or cure the COVID-19 sickness. Also, this combination of drugs seems to help with the common cold and the flu. So, without his badgering, threating, trying to force the entire USA to take the clot shot, he has helped humankind.

    At the beginning of October, the Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2021 to two journalists — Maria Ressa and Dmitry Muratov — for “their efforts to safeguard freedom of expression, which is a precondition for democracy and lasting peace.” The committee noted that “they are representatives of all journalists … in a world in which democracy and freedom of the press face increasingly adverse conditions.” Fair enough. It is also fair to point out that it’s possible that part of the reason why the committee gave the award to a couple of reporters was to avoid...

    Russian dissident Alexei Navalny can add his name to the growing list of candidates who have been shafted by the Nobel Committee this year (many grumbled when the creators of the mRNA COVID jabs didn't win the medicine Nobel).The Nobel Committee announced Friday that the winners of this year's Nobel Peace Prize are a pair of journalists who challenged "authoritarian" regimes with their fearless reporting, the Committee said. The prize ultimately went to Maria Ressa, the editor and founder of the Rappler, an independent Philippines digital-media outlet that has persisted with critical coverage of 'strongman' President Rodrigo Duterte and his...

    Pro-China WHO boss Tedros is key figure in Tigray Peoples Liberation Front. “Scores, and likely hundreds, of people were stabbed or hacked to death in Mai-Kadra, a town in the South West Zone of Ethiopia’s Tigray Region on the night of 9 November,” Amnesty International is confirming. The human rights organization verified “photographs and videos of bodies strewn across the town or being carried away on stretchers.” Deprose Muchena, Amnesty International’s director for east and southern Africa, “confirmed the massacre of a very large number of civilians, who appear to have been day laborers in no way involved in the...

    Donald Trump is set to make his first trip to New York since leaving the White House amid an apparent rift with son-in-law Jared Kushner who the ex-president is said to be angry with over his election loss. Trump is jetting back to the Big Apple this weekend after spending the last six weeks holed up at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, since he snubbed Joe Biden's inauguration on January 20. News of his visit comes amid reports of escalating tensions between Trump and former White House Senior Adviser Jared in the days since they both left DC.

    Many signs pointed to an inevitable conclusion that Myanmar's so-called transition to a democracy was a farce. Nevertheless, Obama embraced it wholeheartedly.The small South East Asian nation Myanmar became headline news last week after its military staged a coup, seizing power after detaining the country’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi and other democratically elected political leaders.Only a decade ago, Myanmar’s transition from military dictatorship to democracy was celebrated as one of President Obama’s foreign policy accomplishments. Now, the small nation is President Joe Biden’s first foreign policy nightmare.A Proxy For PowerMyanmar, also known as Burma, is a country...

    Editor's Note: This piece was authored by Sebastian Thormann.Norwegian MPs have reportedly nominated the Black Lives Matter movement for their nations' Nobel Peace Prize for "raising global awareness and consciousness about racial injustice." This comes amidst other reports that media-hyped climate activist Greta Thunberg has been nominated for the prize again. Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate who refused to concede her 2018 race for Governor in Georgia, has been compared to Martin Luther King in her nomination for this year's prize.Now, a nomination doesn't amount to being awarded one. There's still a long process ahead. But given that the prize...

    The start of 2021 is getting more bizarre each day. Facing a stack of executive orders, Joe Biden, near a hot mic, mutters, “I don’t know what I’m signing.” Learning that she and Ted Cruz agree about the Gamestop market manipulation, AOC accuses the senator of attempted murder. On Friday, Black Lives Matter (BLM), an organization that contributes to, if not foments riots in which at least 25 people have died, has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. As Sean Hannity is fond of saying, "You can't make this stuff up." BLM came into existence in 2013, in response...

    The ex-president reflects on winning the award in his new memoir Former President Barack Obama was taken aback when he found out he was being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, asking "For what?" Details of the moment, along with tales of his political career, are outlined in his new book “A Promised Land," which was released on Tuesday. Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 from the Norwegian Nobel Committee for his "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between people," amidst the backdrop of the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He jokes in the book that...

    Donald Trump didn’t win a Nobel Prize this year — but already he’s been nominated for one in 2021, thanks to a right-wing Finnish politician who cites the president’s “endeavors to end the era of endless wars.” Finland’s Laura Huhtasaari, a European Parliament representative and a member of the far-right Finns Party, nominated the president for the 2021 Peace Prize after Trump was snubbed from this year’s honors. Trump’s nomination is “in recognition of his endeavors to end the era of endless wars, construct peace by encouraging conflicting parties for dialogue and negotiations, as well as underpin internal cohesion and...

    The Nobel Committee announced Friday morning that the 2020 Peace Prize was awarded to the World Food Program, a United Nations agency, for its efforts during the pandemic to combat global hunger, laying the foundations for peace in war-torn countries. “In the face of the pandemic, the World Food Program has demonstrated an impressive ability to intensify its efforts,” Berit Reiss-Andersen, the chair of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, said in Oslo while announcing the prize. “The combination of violent conflict and the pandemic has led to a dramatic rise in the number of people living on the brink of starvation."...

    A group of Australian law professors have given President Trump his third Nobel Peace Prize nomination for his commitment to ending foreign wars. "The Trump Doctrine is something extraordinary, as so many things that Donald Trump does," law professor David Flint explained on Sky News. "He is guided by two things, which seem to be absent from so many politicians. He has firstly common sense and he is only guided by a national interest, and therefore, in our circumstances, an interest in the Western alliance. What he has done with the Trump Doctrine is that he has decided that he...

    The last American president to have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize was honored less for something tangible he had achieved, and more for who he was and what he represented. President Barack Obama, the Nobel committee declared in 2009, has “created a new climate in international politics.” If President Donald Trump is not awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, it would be reasonable to suspect that the reason is similar. Trump also created a “new climate in international politics,” just in a way that’s much less appealing to the judges in Scandinavia. So maybe his chances of receiving the prize...
