    New York : McDonald’s settled in Cuba in 1986. Photo: Stephen Maturen / . Surely, you were not even aware that it was possible that there was a McDonald’s in Cuba. After all, the 1959 revolution led by Fidel Castro nationalized American properties on the island, so the countries have not been on good terms since. Also, later, in the 1960s, the United States imposed a trade embargo in which it prohibited most Americans from spending their money there. That is why it would seem unlikely that Cuba would allow a McDonald’s – which could be considered a symbol of American capitalism – on its land. However, not only did this happen, but the branch is in a place that is more gloomy than joyous. And is that the restaurant is at the famous Guantanamo Bay Naval Base. How could this McDonald’s be put According...
    Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro has teamed up with Fox Nation for a new series that explores the rich history of some of the United States' most resplendent estates, offering viewers a rare glimpse into the art, architecture and culture of five of the county's hidden gems. The "Castles USA" series, which features buildings inspired by Medieval, Gothic, Byzantine, and Italian Renaissance architecture, examines the stories behind the magical structures and the people who once occupied them.  Pirro told "Fox & Friends" on Monday that she most enjoyed visiting The Breakers, on the coast at Newport, R.I. "It is magnificent," she said. "These places are breathtaking. They're the interplay of culture, and architecture, and art and there's a story in every castle." VideoThe Breakers was built as a "summer cottage" for railroad magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt II during the Gilded Age of the late 19th century. Named for the breaking waves of the Atlantic Ocean it overlooks, The Breakers is one of...
    New York : Cuba’s interference in Venezuela was punished by the United States. Photo: Ernesto Mastrascusa / . The government of Donald Trump put more obstacles to a possible thaw of relations with Cuba in the next administration. This Monday, the State Department reintegrated Cuba into the list of States sponsors of terrorism, from which it had been withdrawn in 2015 by the previous Barack Obama administration, during the “thaw” of the bilateral relationship. “The Department of State has designated Cuba as a State Sponsor of Terrorism for repeatedly supporting acts of international terrorism by granting safe haven to terrorists,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement. The State Department justified the action with the presence of members of the National Liberation Army, an insurgent group in Colombia, in Cuba. He also recalled that the Caribbean nation is a refuge for people who...

    It’s probably fair to say that Joe Scarborough is none too impressed with Josh Hawley. The junior Senator from Missouri has found himself in a maelstrom of animus since he publically objected to the Electoral College certification, giving false credence to the lie that the 2020 general election was stolen. The conspiracy of a rigged election that Hawley (and President Donald Trump) amplified, appears to be the prime motivator behind Wednesday’s insurrection on Capitol Hill by aggrieved Trump supporters. As result, news broke yesterday that publisher Simon & Schuster was ending its contract with Hawley given his involvement in the stolen election conspiracy, which drew an outraged response from Hawley. He called the decision “Orwellian,” suggested it was a violation of his First Amendment rights, and appeared to suggest litigation with a threat to see the publishing giants in court.

    Many African countries that were used to learning American lessons in democracy did not fail to point the finger at the Capitol Hill invasion by pro-Trump protesters.

    The night was intense for Annick Hervio. Affiliated with CNN, Lesage de Vance, one of two officers from the U.S. International Division of High School, quickly set aside his copies to imitate Washington’s position on Capitol Hill, this “symbol of democracy.” The dual national editor says he was frightened when he saw the protesters enter the Washington building, rolling his eyes on the news channel. “I’m not afraid that American democracy will stumble, but I’m afraid of senators. This is sad for American democracy.” “Like an Action Movie” The author, who faced its events as a “CNN insurgency”, responded late to the news of some of his 75 students. Elliott and Axel are studying in their final year. The pro-Trump sling did not surprise them. “It simply came to our notice then. It was like an action movie, ”Elliott said.

    Every ballot initiative involving the decriminalization or legalization of marijuana passed in the 2020 election. Voters in New Jersey and Arizona chose to legalize marijuana for adult recreational use. Mississippi voted to legalize medical marijuana use, and South Dakota legalized the drug for both recreational and medical use. Now, 15 states — along with the District of Columbia — have legalized marijuana for adult recreational use. Thirty-six states permit medical use of the drug. About a month after the election, the Democratic-controlled House passed the ''Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act,'' or the MORE Act. This bill would legalize marijuana at the federal level and implement sweeping regulations and reforms surrounding the drug. The 2020 election and the House vote reveal something important about the shift in the marijuana debate: Marijuana may be one of the truly bipartisan issues in the United States right now.

    Half of the blue-collar migrants who openly crossed the southern border between 2014 and 2019 remain in the United States, according to March 2020 data posted by the Department of Homeland Security. Agents registered 3.5 million arrivals and sent 1.8 million back home via deportations and repatriations by March 2020, said the December 31 report. The report did not include data about the additional migrants who successfully sneaked through the border. But 280,000 of the 3.5 million were provided “relief,” so allowing them to stay in the United States and eventually get green cards. That means one in 12 blue-collar migrants get the colossal prize of U.S. residency and citizenship for themselves and all of their descendants — in exchange for surviving the U.S. government’s semi-formal obstacle course of cartels and coyotes, distance and bribes, judges and lawyers, deserts, walls, and border agents. Moreover, another 1.4 million blue-collar migrants are...
