Though no cases of Ebola were reported anywhere near North Korea, in October the troubled nation announced that it would close its borders to most foreigners and impose a three-week quarantine on those who do enter the country to prevent the virus from spreading. Now, despite the fact that the outbreak is tapering off even in West Africa, North Korea has banned foreigners from the Pyongyang marathon on April 12. “Our North Korean partners in Pyongyang contacted us this morning with news that the 2015 Pyongyang Marathon has – as of today – been closed to amateur and professional foreign runners,” Nick Bonner, director China’s Koryo Tours, told Reuters. North Korea has been trying to increase tourism, and this is another big blow to the industry, as hundreds of foreign runners had already signed up for tours. We get it, North Korea: You’re crazy.
Last year the Kavanaugh nomination was rammed through the Senate without a thorough examination of the allegations against him. Confirmation is not exoneration, and these newest revelations are disturbing. Like the man who appointed him, Kavanaugh should be impeached.
I sat through those hearings. Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people. He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice. He must be impeached.
It’s more clear than ever that Brett Kavanaugh lied under oath. He should be impeached. And Congress should review the failure of the Department of Justice to properly investigate the matter.
Yesterday, we learned of another accusation against Brett Kavanaugh—one we didn’t find out about before he was confirmed because the Senate forced the F.B.I. to rush its investigation to save his nomination. We know he lied under oath. He should be impeached.
