January 18, 2017 by walden9

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'

January 17, 2017 by legitgov

'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.

January 17, 2017 by walden9

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.

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."

January 17, 2017 by legitgov

After 3 Years, MH370 Search Ends With No Plane, Few Answers | 17 Jan 2017 | After nearly three years, the hunt for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 ended in futility and frustration Tuesday, as crews completed their deep-sea search of a desolate stretch of the Indian Ocean without finding a trace of the plane.
