What is the International Criminal Court for?

The ICC it’s mandated to prosecute individuals for genocide and aggression, as well as crimes or war and against humanity.

These are the causes for which men die earlier than women

When you hear someone talking about gender equality, they almost never talk about the risks men face just for the fact of being men. These risks are real, not a made-up illusion, as some people are inclined to think. In fact, men live fewer years than women. That is the reality. The question is: why?

Derrame, câncer e suicídio derrubam a expectativa de vida dos homens

Quando ouvimos falar sobre igualdade de gênero, quase nunca se fala sobre os riscos que os homens enfrentam apenas pelo fato de serem homens. Esses riscos são reais, não apenas uma ilusão inventada como algumas pessoas estão inclinadas a pensar. Na verdade, os homens vivem menos anos do que as mulheres. Essa é a realidade.

Robert Mueller  foi um instrumento -intencional ou não- para realizar o plano de Donald J. Trump de “drenar o pântano”? A investigação de Mueller foi uma tentativa de desmascarar as práticas traiçoeiras do governo paralelo contra um presidente legitimamente eleito, além de uma investigação sobre a suposta colusão russa?

Trump de “drenar el pantano”? ¿Era la investigación de Mueller una tentativa de desenmascarar las prácticas traidoras del gobierno de la oposición contra un presidente elegido legítimamente, además de una investigación en la supuesta colusión rusa? Si no era, funcionó de maravilla para la administración Trump. A pesar de las acusaciones infundadas constantes de demócratas y los medios ...Read full article...

Did we miss the whole point behind the Mueller investigation?

Was Robert Mueller an unintended asset to Donald J. Trump’s plan to “drain the swamp”?
