A Happy Thanksgiving from Miss KotKot1581





1…………> Today’s White House Tweets: President Trump



 2…………> An Asian Tragedy: Dog Slaughter House


Officials in South Korea dismantled country’s largest dog slaughterhouse, identified as the Taepyeong-dong complex in Seongnam city, that will be converted into a public park, as Humane Society International (HSI) found “horrifying” conditions inside the factory, including electrocution equipment, knives, and a de-hairing machine.

One million dogs are consumed every year and dog rights activists have sought to end the custom, despite that the meat is considered a delicacy in South Korea, and attitudes have changed in recent years.

“This is a historic moment,” Korean Animal Rights Advocates (KARA) said in a statement.

“It will open the door for more closures of dog meat slaughterhouses across the country, expediting the decline of the overall dog million dogs.”

The Taepyeong-dong complex – an important source of meat for restaurants across the country – housed at least six slaughterhouses, holding several hundred animals at a time.  


3…………> A Blessed Thanksgiving: President Trump


“I hope that you’ll take solace in knowing that all of the American families you hold so close to your heart are all doing well. The nation’s doing well economically, better than anybody in the world,”

President Trump used a holiday call to troops deployed overseas to pat himself on the back, before telling reporters he was thankful for himself on Thanksgiving.

“You are our heroes,” he said, as club waiters worked to set Thanksgiving dinner tables on the outdoor terrace behind him.

Mr. Trump’s call, made from his private Mar-a-Lago club, struck a political tone as he spoke with members of all five branches of the military to wish them happy Thanksgiving. 


4…………> Water, Give Me Water: China


The iconic Yellow River, the second-longest in Asia, is now a tenth of what it was in the 1940s, and often fails to reach the sea, while the “mother river” of Beijing — the Yongding — used to run long and wide. For centuries it was the lifeblood of the capital, but it has been scorched for more than 30 years.

A water crisis could be the biggest threat to China’s rise as a superpower, undercutting the growth and stability so prized by the Government, with most of the northern parts of the country suffers from acute water shortage.

The statistics are alarming: in the past 25 years, 28,000 rivers and waterways have disappeared across the country, and now the former Chinese premier Wen Jiabao has warned the lack of water threatened the very survival of the nation itself.


5…………> A Family Quarrel: Uncle George vs Nephew Mark


One of “Uncle” George Soros’s young men has called on US politicians to probe Facebook, claiming the company had smeared the philanthropist, adding “this needs independent, congressional oversight” following the social network confirmed that it had hired a PR firm to make claims about the financier. Facebook had directed the PR firm Definers to investigate Soros’s links to the “Freedom from Facebook” campaign, which is seeking the company’s break-up. Mr. Schrage added that related documents were then sent to journalists on Facebook’s behalf.
