Scottish Parliament to hold vote on Unexplained Wealth Order into Donald Τrump’s finances


The shocking part about this story isn’t that the Scottish gov’t hasn’t yet voted on this, but rather that this is at least the third fucking time Sturgeon has to be pushed to do this by members of her gov’t.

What the F is she waiting for

If Trump fraudulently acquired the properties, or used them to launder money, then seize them and sell them.

More than 100 notable personalities across the globe, including members of European Parliament, urge Joe Biden to tackle Climate Change immediately : worldnews


Biden will do what he can, but without 60 votes in the sanat, he can only do so much. For example, Biden can get the EPA to push for better mileage for cars and make all new federal vehicles electric.

The greatest power that Biden / Dems have is budget voting. He might be able to get a bug-budget deal on green infrastructure as stated on his policy platform, but that will likely wait at least as long as the bill and impeachment are over for at least a month.

I'm sure Biden hasn't forgotten the climate, and as we head into the summer and fall fire and hurricane seasons, I expect a lot of pressure from Dems to accomplish something substantial if it hasn't happened by then.

Once Biden has achieved something substantial in the US, he will use that achievement as an example to pressure other nations to do the same.

I understand that every day counts, but I don't assume Biden isn't up to the task just because it's not announced yet. Remember, Bernie has already looked at the Bidens green infrastructure proposal and you can be sure that he will check out what he can legally enforce the Sanat on the budget vote.

Nepal has plunged into a political crisis and renewed instability after President Bidhya Devi Bhandari dissolved parliament at the request of Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli and announced general elections would be held in April and May next year, more than a year ahead of schedule : worldnews


Presidents are mostly ceremonial. The prime minister is the one in power. A prime minister needs a majority (2/3 or a simple majority, depending on the country) supported by parliament in order to conduct his governance. Due to the lack of support for the majority, the prime minister is dismissed.

In Nepal's case, the prime minister would allegedly be kicked out with suspicion / withdrawal of support from the parties that support the prime minister and therefore the prime minister challenged the president to disband parliament as a counter-argument. The latter step has been challenged as unconstitutional, but the opposition claims otherwise.

After all, the Prime Minister and the President are allies. The President dismissed Parliament on the advice of the Prime Minister.
