January 20, 2017 by walden9

Trump to be sworn in, marking a transformative shift in the country's leadership | 20 Jan 2017 | Donald John Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States at noon on Friday, on a day that will feature smaller crowds and more subdued ceremony than previous inaugurations — but still usher in a transformative shift in the country’s leadership. Just before 11 a.m. on Friday, Trump and his wife Melania accompanied President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama in a motorcade from the White House to the U.S. Capitol. They were driven down an empty Pennsylvania Avenue, in a city where anti-Trump protesters clashed with police at security checkpoints outside the closed-off security zone.

ISIS Destroys Ancient Theater, Tetrapylon in Palmyra, Syria Says | 20 Jan 2017 | Two famous ancient structures in the city of Palmyra have been destroyed by ISIS forces, Syria's antiquities chief says. The Tetrapylon and the facade of the city's Roman theater have both been almost completely demolished, the official says, according to NPR. "Activist Khaled al-Homsi, who is from Palmyra, shared satellite imagery to Twitter, which appears to confirm the scale of the damage," Alison reports. "The face of the Roman theater is a pile of rubble and only four of the Tetrapylon's 16 columns appear to be standing."

"We will be signing some papers that will be very meaningful tomorrow right after the speech to get the show going," Trump said, according to cell phone video of his remarks during a closed press portion of the luncheon obtained by CNN.

Hillary Clinton under microscope at inauguration | 20 Jan 2017 | Hillary Clinton's presence at the Capitol will be the subject of feverish interest as Donald Trump takes the presidential oath of office on Friday. Watchful cameras are set to catch any reflexive moment of pain or frustration on Clinton's face as she watches a man whom she plainly disdains sworn into the nation's highest office - a job she had been favored to win. Clinton and her team were confident she would be the next president until the results began rolling in on the night of the election.

Up to 250,000 people are likely to march in the city against the new commander-in-chief this weekend.

Outrage at traitorous CNN for 'inciting violence' with report Obama pick will be president if Trump, Pence are killed at inauguration

January 20, 2017 by legitgov

Outrage at 'traitorous' CNN for 'inciting violence' with report that Obama cabinet member will be president if Trump and Pence are killed at the inauguration -- CNN speculated about what would happen if Trump was killed in inauguration --It reported that an Obama-selected secretary would be sworn in as president --They also showed scenes from a new TV show that depicts a Capitol bombing | 19 Jan 2017 | Wednesday's startling report, titled 'Disaster could put Obama appointee in Oval Office,' speculated on what might happen if Trump, Mike Pence and the Congressional leaders were all killed during the ceremony. During the segment they also used scenes from ABC show 'Designated Survivor', which depicts what would happen if the Capitol building - the venue for Trump's swearing in - was bombed and the Commander-in-chief killed. The report concluded that a Democrat would take the vice-president's place in the White House in the event of such an attack, worrying some that venomous anti-Trump protesters might attempt a treasonous attack on the event. Critics suggested that's exactly what CNN - which was derided as the 'Clinton News Network' during the Trump election campaign, and denied questions at his recent press conference - is hoping for.

Trump inauguration boycott grows to third of Democratic caucus

January 20, 2017 by walden9

Trump inauguration boycott grows to third of Democratic caucus | 18 Jan 2017 | Roughly 60 House Democrats, or nearly one-third of the 194-member caucus, plan to be elsewhere Friday when President-elect Donald Trump takes the oath of office, citing objections from Russian hacking to his feud with Rep. John Lewis of Georgia. At least two more Democrats -- Reps. Janice D. Schakowsky of Illinois and Grace Meng of New York -- announced Wednesday that they would hop aboard the boycott wagon in a show of partisan congressional opposition that may be unlike anything else in modern history. "It seems fairly unprecedented this number of people would boycott and in such a formalized manner," said Barbara Perry, presidential studies director of the Miller Center of Public Affairs at the University of Virginia.

Sanders backers take over California Democratic Party

January 20, 2017 by walden9

Sanders backers take over California Democratic Party | 19 Jan 2017 | Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) turned out en masse at ordinarily sleepy party caucuses earlier this month, electing a slate of delegates who could be poised to take over the largest Democratic Party organization outside of Washington, D.C. As final vote totals trickled in, Sanders backers claimed to have elected more than 650 delegates out of 1,120 available seats chosen at this month's caucuses. Those delegates will choose the next state Democratic Party chairman, along with other party officials. Sanders supporters say they hope to change the very nature of the Democratic Party.

Trump's arrival on eve of inauguration ushers in 'real change' to Washington

Trump's arrival on eve of inauguration ushers in 'real change' to Washington | 19 Jan 2017 | Donald Trump's arrival in Washington Thursday on the eve of his inauguration as the 45th president snapped the capital city into its new reality, as the buoyant business mogul celebrated his unlikely political ascent with signature bravado and spontaneity. Kicking off three days of carefully orchestrated inaugural proceedings infused with pomp and guided by precision and protocol, the president-elect reveled in the moment and delivered a tribute to the populist movement that propelled him into office. "We all got tired of seeing what was happening and we wanted change, but we wanted real change," Trump said on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. "It's a movement like we've never seen anywhere in the world, they say."

Not even the Girl Scouts are safe from the anti-Trump resistance

January 20, 2017 by walden9

Not even the Girl Scouts are safe from the anti-Trump resistance | 19 Jan 2017 | Since George Washington took his oath of office in New York on April 20, 1789, America has held an inaugural parade celebrating the peaceful transition of power upon which the country is founded. For more than a century, some lucky members of the Nation's Capital council of the Girl Scouts of America have marched in that parade, alongside members of organizations from across the country. It doesn't appear the Girl Scouts has ever been scrutinized for its participation. But, as President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration approaches on Friday, the organization has come under fire for its (quadrennial, expected) decision to have 75 Girl Scouts march in the parade. Many of its critics say the girls should not march considering Trump's recorded comments about women and Vice President-elect Mike Pence's strong antiabortion views.

US planes strike Isis fighters in Libya 'planning attacks in Europe' | 19 Jan 2017 | US warplanes have conducted massive airstrikes near the Libyan city of Sirte against Islamic State members believed to be planning attacks in Europe, in an attack which killed 80 people. A month after the US military declared a successful conclusion to a months-long air campaign against the militant group, B-2 bombers made a 9,400km (5,800-mile) journey on Wednesday night from a Missouri airbase to target what Pentagon officials described as two Isis training camps 45km (28 miles) south-west of Sirte. Initial US estimates were that approximately 80 people were killed, who the Pentagon described as Isis fighters.

Manchester United to employ full-time counter-terrorism manager | 18 Jan 2017 | Manchester United believe they are the first sports club in the country to have a full-time counter-terrorism manager. The appointment was revealed at a recent fans' forum and it is understood the role will be filled by a former inspector from Greater Manchester police's specialist search unit. United's final match of last season against Bournemouth was called off after what proved to be a fake bomb, left behind following a training exercise, was found in a toilet. The game had to be played four days after the FA Cup final.

Feds seek to indict Garner chokehold cop before Trump takes office | 18 Jan 2017 | The Obama administration is scrambling to secure an indictment in the racially charged, NYPD killing of Eric Garner before President-elect Donald Trump takes office Friday and potentially scraps the case, sources told The Post.

2016 hottest year ever recorded - and scientists say human activity to blame --Final data confirms record-breaking temperatures for third year in a row --Earth has not been this warm for 115,000 years | 18 Jan 2017 | 2016 was the hottest year on record, setting a new high for the third year in a row, with scientists firmly putting the blame on human activities that drive climate change. The final data for 2016 was released on Wednesday by the three key agencies – the UK Met Office and Nasa and Noaa in the US – and showed 16 of the 17 hottest years on record have been this century. Direct temperature measurements stretch back to 1880, but scientific research indicates the world was last this warm about 115,000 years ago and that the planet has not experienced such high levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere for 4m years. In 2016, global warming delivered scorching temperatures around the world.

CNN's Marc Lamont Hill: Blacks meeting with Trump are 'mediocre Negroes' | 17 Jan 2017 | CNN's Marc Lamont Hill referred to Trump diversity team member Bruce LeVell as a part of a group of "mediocre Negroes" who met with the president-elect. The characterization, which includes Pastor Darryl Scott and television host and comedian Steve Harvey, came during a panel discussion with host Don Lemon on "CNN Tonight" on Monday. "They (the Trump transition team) keep bringing up comedians and and actors athletes to represent black interests. It's demeaning, it's disrespectful, and it's condescending," Hill argued. "Bring some people up there with expertise, Donald Trump, don't just bring up people to entertain."

Obama's Ambassadors in Asia Make Final Plea for Dead TPP Corporate Takeover | 17 Jan 2017 | When hope of enacting the ambitious Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact corporate takeover ended in November, Max Baucus, the United States ambassador to China, was among the officials who had to grapple with disappointment. The partnership, called the TPP, was a hallmark of the [Wall Street-owned] Obama administration...When President Obama plucked Mr. Baucus in 2013 from the United States Senate to be the ambassador to China, he chose a politician with a record of promoting [U.S. job-killing] free trade. Last week Mr. Baucus took the unusual step, with five other American ambassadors in the Asia-Pacific region, of sending an open letter to Congress asking its members to support the pact...

'Worse than prostitutes': Putin slams those behind Trump 'leak'

'Worse than prostitutes': Putin slams those behind Trump 'leak' | 17 Jan 2017 | Russian President Vladimir Putin said he has no grounds to attack or protect US President-elect Donald Trump, since he does not know him personally. He added though that those behind the recent allegations against Trump have "no moral scruples." "I don't know Mr. Trump personally, I have never met him and don't know what he will do on the international arena. So I have no grounds to attack him or criticize him for anything, or protect him or whatever," Putin said. Despite the fact that elections in the US are over and ended with a "solid win" for the Republican candidate, an intense political struggle continues in the US, the Russian president observed, adding that there are certain forces that aim "to undermine the legitimacy of the president-elect."

Obama Commutes Bulk of Chelsea Manning's Sentence

January 17, 2017 by walden9

Breaking: Obama Commutes Bulk of Chelsea Manning's Sentence | 17 Jan 2017 | President Obama on Tuesday largely commuted the remaining prison sentence of Chelsea Manning, the army intelligence analyst convicted of an enormous 2010 leak that revealed American military and diplomatic activities across the world, disrupted the administration, and made WikiLeaks, the recipient of those disclosures, famous. The decision by Mr. Obama rescued Ms. Manning, who twice tried to commit suicide last year, from an uncertain future as a transgender woman incarcerated at the male military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. She has been jailed for nearly seven years, and her 35-year sentence was by far the longest punishment ever imposed in the United States for a leak conviction. Now, under the terms of Mr. Obama's commutation announced by the White House on Tuesday, Ms. Manning is set to be freed in five months, on May 17 of this year, rather than in 2045.

January 17, 2017 by walden9

Britain to leave EU market as May sets 'hard Brexit' course | 17 Jan 2017 | Britain will quit the EU single market when it leaves the European Union, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Tuesday in a decisive speech that set a course for a clean break with the world's largest trading bloc. Setting out a vision that could determine Britain's future for generations and the shape of the EU itself, May answered criticism that she has been coy about her strategy with a 12-point plan for what has been dubbed a "hard Brexit". May promised to seek the greatest possible access to European markets but said Britain would aim to establish its own free trade deals with countries far beyond Europe, and impose limits on immigration from the continent.

Obama UN rep rips Russia, rejects attack on intel agencies | 17 Jan 2017 |  US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power on Tuesday rapped President-elect Donald Trump for his defense of Moscow and delivered a stark warning about Russian efforts to undermine the international order. Power's remarks, at the Washington-based Atlantic Council, are just the latest warning by outgoing Obama administration officials of the need to be wary of Russian intentions as Trump repeatedly asserts his desire for better ties with Moscow, sometimes criticizing US intelligence services in the process. Power made indirect reference to Trump, who denigrated US intelligence agencies after their conclusion that Russia had hacked the US election in an attempt to undermine Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Russia's Putin rejects Trump dossier report as plot against legitimacy of president-elect

January 17, 2017 by walden9

Russia's Putin rejects Trump dossier report as plot against legitimacy of president-elect | 17 Jan 2017 | Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday called reports that Donald Trump has been compromised by Russian intelligence "total nonsense" and said allegations were fabricated to "undermine the legitimacy" of Trump's presidency. It was the Russian president's first direct denial of the contents of an uncorroborated dossier written by a former British intelligence agent hired to compile opposition research. The dossier claimed that Trump was compromised by Russian intelligence agents during a 2013 visit to Moscow..."The people who are ordering this kind of false information, who are now disseminating it against the president-elect of the United States, who fabricate it and use it in a political fight, are worse than prostitutes," Putin told journalists after talks with Moldovan President Igor Dodon in Moscow. "They have no moral boundaries."
