  • Columnist, pundit Juan Williams says TV show host rejected him for not being 'black enough'

    "He thinks I’m not Black enough. Seriously," Williams said after being told he wouldn't be a guest on the show. Panamanian-American journalist Juan Williams said a white TV show host dismissed him from discussing George Floyd's death and subsequent social unrest because Williams wasn't "black enough." Williams alleges the host is on the PBS-affiliated show "This Is America & The World" and that he declined to have Williams talk about race-related issues because he was born in Panama, not America. Williams, a Democrat, said he received a note from the show host telling him about his decision. "A white TV...

    Hopes have been raised that the cargo ship could be freed today after emergency crews were ordered to start offloading containers. Experts previously budged its stern and get its rudder and propeller working. The Dutch-flagged Alp Guard and the Italian-flagged Carlo Magno, which were called in to work alongside tugboats already on scene, reached the Red Sea near the city of Suez earlier today. They will now help nudge the Ever Given as dredgers continue to vacuum up sand from underneath the vessel and mud caked to its port side. They have so far shifted 27,000 cubic metres of sand...

    May 29, 2008 By Andrew Walden (Hawai'i Free Press) Nadhmi Auchi, seen here with the Governor of Illinois, Rob Blagojevich (middle) at a 2004 Chicago dinner in Auchi's honor arranged by Antonin Rezko (potentially, right)[1]. All three men have been convicted of corruption related charges (Auchi 2003, Rezko 2008, Blagojevich 2009).[2] “A British-Iraqi billionaire lent millions of dollars to Barack Obama's fundraiser (dual US-Syrian citizen Tony Rezko) just weeks before an imprudent land deal that has returned to haunt the presidential contender, an investigation by The Times discloses. The money transfer raises the question of whether funds from Nadhmi Auchi,...

His exile was interrupted by the closure of frontiers decreed by the COVID-19 pandemic. In the camp of La Peñita in particular, the animals are cold and various carp are made.

    A criminal complaint was unsealed today in federal court in Brooklyn, New York, charging Luis Enrique Martinelli Linares (Luis Martinelli Linares) and Ricardo Alberto Martinelli Linares (Ricardo Martinelli Linares) for their roles in a massive bribery and money laundering scheme involving Odebrecht S.A. (Odebrecht), a Brazil-based global construction conglomerate. On Dec. 21, 2016, Odebrecht pleaded guilty in the Eastern District of New York to a criminal information charging it with conspiracy to violate the anti-bribery provisions of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) for its involvement in the bribery and money laundering scheme. The overarching Odebrecht scheme involved the payment of...

    Dozens of hippies who got stuck at a festival in Panama due to coronavirus realized that the collectivist utopia they sought after is actually “hell” as they bicker over food and territory. One doesn’t want to laugh too much at their misfortune, but dear God, this is funny. The Tribal Gathering Festival, billed as “paradise on earth,” was supposed to end on March 15, but 40 western hippies remain trapped at the site because Panama announced a national emergency due to COVID-19 and placed them under quarantine. A subsequent ban on all entry and departure flights now means the hippies...

    It’s being called the “Panama Papers” — a trove of 11.5 million leaked internal documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, showing how hundreds of thousands of people with money to hide used anonymous shell corporations across the world. Fusion’s investigative unit was one of the more than 100 media organizations that dove into the files — and found drug dealers, arms traders, human traffickers, fraudsters. We also found no shortage of politicians or their family members. Here is a listing of current and former world leaders connected to the files.

    Among the multitude of migrants waiting in Mexico to get asylum in the United States are thousands of Africans boldly demanding passage into the country. They are far more coordinated than their Central American caravan counterparts and have formed an official organization to spread their message and advocate on their behalf. The group accuses Mexican authorities of discrimination and racism and is ordering Mexico to grant visas that allow them to continue their trek north to seek “protection” in America. For about three months the Africans have been holed up in Tapachula, in the southeast Mexican state of Chiapas bordering...

    Mary Taft lives with her two daughters, seven cats and two dogs in a mansion in Panama — and she wouldn’t have it any other way. But the former teacher and school administrator didn’t always know that a Panamanian retirement was in store for her. Indeed, as she consulted with her two adult daughters about where to move, dozens of spots were on the table. “We had this blue-sky conversation — where can we all go and live together?” the 63-year-old former Springfield, Mass., resident recalls. “Canada was out because it was too cold. We wanted the tropics because we...

Even worse is the latest report from the Center for Immigration Studies: 35,000 Africans are tramping north for the U.S. border in the hope of ensconcing themselves in U.S. sanctuary cities. They’re headed this way through the Darién Gap, a 66-mile long swath of rough territory in the borderlands of Colombia and Panama.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham has always been a defense hawk, so it comes as no surprise that he’s hawkish on Venezuela. But he might be just a tad too hawkish, judging by an interview he gave on “Fox News Sunday.” Probably frustrated by the U.S.-backed failed coup attempt in Venezuela in April, the South Carolina Republican pretty much recommended to POTUS Donald Trump that he launch a Grenada-style invasion of Venezuela, despite obvious differences in the forces we would likely encounter. “Trump said rightly, [current President Nicolas] Maduro’s not the legitimate leader of Venezuela. The entire region supports the Trump approach,...

    German authorities raided Deutsche Bank’s headquarters Thursday amid suspicions that its employees helped clients set up offshore companies that were used to launder hundreds of millions of euros. About 170 police officers, investigators and prosecutors swooped in on the bank’s offices in Frankfurt and premises in nearby Eschborn and Gross-Umstadt at 10 a.m. (0900 GMT), seizing electronic and paper records. The investigation emerged from an analysis of documents leaked from tax havens in recent years, including the 2016 “Panama Papers,” said Frankfurt prosecutors’ spokeswoman Nadja Niesen. It is focused on two Deutsche Bank employees, aged 50 and 46, and possibly...

    Pope Francis has just returned from a youth rally in Panama.  I'm glad to see the pope there, and it's a great program to promote the faith among young people.  I have friends from our area who traveled to the event. Let's hope that Pope Francis has a tough response to the new New York law on abortion.  It is late-term abortion and worse. I'm glad to see that the opposition is coming from many places, including Charlie Daniels: Music icon Charlie Daniels blasted New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in a Saturday tweet, asserting that a new state law that legalizes abortion up until birth threatens...

    Pope Francis has taken another shot at wall-building politicians, telling thousands of Catholics in Panama gathered for World Youth Day that "builders of walls sow fear" and "divide people." "We know that the father of lies, the devil, prefers a community divided and bickering," Francis told a crowd of tens of thousands of youth Thursday night at a seaside park in Panama City. "This is the criteria to divide people: The builders of bridges and the builders of walls, those builders of walls sow fear and look to divide people. What do you want to be?" When the crowd replied...
