In addition to the Adding of the two public holidays, can it be mentioned that it was announced on the Day of Remembrance for the Victims of the Crimean Tatar Genocide[edit]

Not to be that guy who makes excuses for conspiracy theorists and anti-immigration jack a loons, but I feel like we should mention that the government of Ukraine's decision may have been out of respect for the tens of thousands of people who died in the mass deportation. Otherwise, it sounds like something Pamela Geller could use for their Eurabia conspiracy. — Unsigned, by: / talk

Christopher Columbus Deserves To Be Celebrated[edit]

Thank you for coming to my TED talk

Maxwell and Wohl[edit]

After reading article, it seems that the claims of Maxwell employing Wohl are based on A), written testimony by Jack Burkman, Wohl's partner in crime, B) court documents with noticeable errors, and C), a story in the Daily Mail. The first has no credibility. None, nada zip bupkis. The second might have some credibility, but the glaring errors (Maxwell's shell company is Granite Reality, as opposed to the documents' claimed it was Granite Realty), make me very wary. Court documents tend to be written by people who are sticklers for getting these sorts of things correct, lest cases be damaged or lawsuits erupt. The last source has as much credibility as Wohl and Burkman themselves. Overall, without stronger evidence, I personally find these claims to be highly suspect. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 12:54, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

Agreed. Obvious Wohl / Burkman bullshit that should be given zero credence on WIGO World. Helena Bonham Carter (talk) 13:07, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

HBO Axios Interview with Trump[edit]
