          Αεροσκάφος επέστρεψε στο αεροδρόμιο γιατί μια μητέρα είχε ξεχάσει το μωρό της στον τερματικό σταθμό      Cache   Translate Page      

Μια νεαρή μητέρα που ταξίδευε αεροπορικώς από τη Σαουδική Αραβία στη Μαλαισία φαίνεται πως έζησε το σοκ της ζωής της όταν συνειδητοποίησε, μετά την επιβίβασή της στο αεροσκάφος (και σύμφωνα με κάποιες πηγές και μετά και την απογείωσή) πως είχε ξεχάσει το μωρό της στο τερματικό σταθμό του αεροδρομίου.

Η πτήση της Saudi Arabian Airlines προς την Κουάλα Λουμπούρ αναγκάστηκε να επιστρέψει στο αεροδρόμιο «Βασιλιάς Αμπντουλαζίζ» της Τζέντα, αφού η γυναίκα πανικόβλητη ενημέρωσε το πλήρωμα για το τι είχε συμβεί, όπως αναφέρει η Telegraph.

Σε ένα βίντεο που έχει αναρτηθεί στο διαδίκτυο ο πιλότος του αεροσκάφους ακούγεται να ζητά άδεια από τον πύργο ελέγχου για να επιστρέψει. «Είθε ο Θεός να είναι μαζί μας. Μπορούμε να επιτρέψουμε;». Ένας εκ των ελεγκτών εναέριας κυκλοφορίας ακούγεται να λέει έκπληκτος: «Η πτήση ζητά να επιστρέψει ...μία επιβάτιδα ξέχασε το μωρό της στο χώρο αναμονής. Το κακόμοιρο» και στη συνέχεια ακούγεται να λέει: «Εντάξει, κατευθυνθείτε προς την πύλη. Αυτό δεν έχει ξαναγίνει!».

 

 

Όπως αναφέρει το GulfNews, το περίεργο περιστατικό σημειώθηκε το Σαββατοκύριακο και σύμφωνα με το δημοσίευμα το αεροσκάφος είχε απογειωθεί όταν η μητέρα συνειδητοποίησε πως είχε ξεχάσει το μωρό και ενημέρωσε το πλήρωμα. Ωστόσο άλλες πηγές αναφέρουν πως το αεροσκάφος δεν είχε ακόμη απογειωθεί.

Σε κάθε περίπτωση η ιστορία είχε αίσιο τέλος αφού μητέρα και μωρό επανασυνδέθηκαν.

Ωστόσο, οι συνθήκες που οδήγησαν στην εγκατάλειψη του μωρού δεν έχουν γίνει γνωστές αλλά σίγουρα δεν είναι και η πρώτη φορά που ακούμε για ένα γονιό που ξέχασε κάπου το παιδί του.

Για παράδειγμα ο πρώην πρωθυπουργός της Βρετανίας, Ντέιβιντ Κάμερον και η σύζυγός του Σαμάνθα, είχαν ξεχάσει το 2012 την 8χρονη, τότε, κόρη τους Νάνσυ σε μια παμπ. Το ζευγάρι είχε συναντηθεί με φίλους και στη συνέχεια έφυγαν με δύο διαφορετικά αυτοκίνητα αλλά στη συνέχεια διαπίστωσαν πως η κόρη τους δεν ήταν σε κανένα εξ αυτών. Τελικά η μητέρα επέστρεψε στην παμπ και βρήκε τη μικρή σώα και ασφαλή να τη φροντίζει το προσωπικό του καταστήματος.

          The Problem With "Reparations"      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Ryan McMaken via The Mises Institute,

As the issue of reparations for victims of slavery rages within the Democratic party, and on cable news stations, we encounter a common problem: virtually no one is addressing the specifics of how such a reparations effort would be administered.

Who would receive these reparations payments? Who would pay them? How would guilt and victimhood be determined? As is usually the case with American policy debates, this "debate" offers little more than an opportunity for pundits and activists to grandstand on related issues such as poverty and race - while avoiding the central topic at hand. Support or opposition then becomes nothing more than a matter of affirming one's political loyalties. The actual issue of reparations - and how they'll be paid out - is mostly ignored.

It is important to remember, however, that there is nothing necessarily problematic about the idea of paying reparations to the victims of a crime. In fact, the idea is essentially pro-private-property because it attempts to repay a victim for property stolen from him or her by another party.

After all, any decent legal system would provide for a victim of kidnapping and forced labor to obtain repayment for the time and labor stolen from him by the kidnapper. As Walter Block writes:

Justified reparations are nothing more and nothing less than the forced return of stolen property — even after a significant amount of time has passed. For example, if my grandfather stole a ring from your grandfather, and then bequeathed it to me through the intermediation of my father, then I am, presently, the illegitimate owner of that piece of jewelry. To take the position that reparations are always and forever unjustified is to give an imprimatur to theft, provided a sufficient time period has elapsed. In the just society, your father would have inherited the ring from his own parent, and then given it to you. It is thus not a violation of property rights, but a logical implication of them, to force me to give over this ill-gotten gain to you.

But here's the rub: in order to do this with an eye toward justice, one must identify specific victims and specific perpetrators. Potentially, as Block suggests, one could envision a legal case in which the heirs of victims would be paid reparations by the heirs of the perpetrators. But again, we still encounter the problem of identifying specific persons (and heirs) involved. Reparations cannot be paid in the abstract, since, as Chris Calton has noted:

[L]ibertarian ethics are not based on abstract moral claims; they’re based on concretely identifiable property rights. When a violation of a person’s property rights takes place, restitution is the logical means of compensating the victim ...

But in the real world [on matters of slavery] such a claim is incredibly difficult to prove. And failure to prove a legitimate property claim means that the currently recognized property title holds. Anything else would be committing a new injustice to give the illusion of correcting an old one.

In light of this, we can see that many of the currently proposed methods of paying out "reparations" are imprecise, vague, and consequently unjust. A program, for example, that forces all taxpayers (whether guilty or not of any relevant crimes) to pay reparations to a specific group of people raises several key problems that must be addressed:

1. What if a taxpayer is descended from people who didn't even arrive in the country until after emancipation? That is, should a Japanese-American, whose immigrant ancestors arrived in the United States in 1910, be forced to pay reparations? How about descendants of Mexicans who arrived in the US in 1925?

2. What if the taxpayer has some ancestors who lived in the US before emancipation and some who arrived here afterward? Would that person's "reparation tax bill" be pro-rated to match the fraction of his ancestry that shared antebellum guilt?

3. What if a taxpayer's ancestors were abolitionists who opposed slavery?

4. What if a taxpayer has no ancestors who owned slaves?

The (Bad) Economics of Collective Guilt

In all of these cases, it's hard to see how the person paying reparations is in any way actually responsible for the kidnapping, theft, assault, and other crimes perpetrated against actual slaves. Yes, many activists may claim that "everyone" is  — in the vague abstract — "guilty" of slavery because one's ancestor once bought cheap cotton dungarees in 1858, or once (even unwittingly) worked for a company that sold timbers to ship builders who built slaving ships. These arguments rely on the same twisted logic which would have us believe that people who buy gasoline are somehow morally responsible for the brutality of the Saudi Arabian dictators, or that a teenager who smokes a joint is responsible for terrorism like that perpetrated on 9-11. (Yes, the US government created an ad campaign saying exactly this.)

This everyone-is-guilty claim, in fact, is one invented by the slavedrivers themselves in an attempt to claim that all white Americans — including Northerners — somehow directly benefited from slavery, and thus all abolitionists were hypocrites. It was always a desperate and unconvincing argument, but by putting these claims forward, the slavedrivers of old helped pave the way for the modern-day reparations advocates.

In real life, the people responsible for slavery are only the people who directly owned, sold, or traded in slaves; and the politicians who pushed to preserve, spread, or defend slavery through legislation and the state's police powers.

Slavery Suppressed Wages for Many Workers

Moreover, many non-slaves can be shown to have been negatively impacted by slavery because it acted to suppress wages. As historian Kerry Leigh Merritt describes in detail in her book Masterless Men: Poor Whites and Slavery in the Antebellum South, wage-earning, non-slaveholding whites in the South — who constituted the overwhelming majority of the population — received far lower wages than they would have had they not been forced to compete with slave labor by a legal system designed to favor the tiny minority of slaveowners. Nor were these effects limited to Southern whites only. The increased profitability of agriculture in the South — thanks to slavery — acted to divert resources from Northern agriculture and industry as well, thus lowering wages for at least some Northern workers. Moreover, capital that poured into the slave plantation could have been used to improve worker productivity through innovation in machinery and other capital. Instead, that investment was diverted away from improving free labor, and devoted to expansion and maintenance of the slave economy. Overall, the presence of slaves suppressed wages nationwide.

The fact that slaveowners and plantation owners indisputably benefited from slavery hardly means that white day laborers benefited as well. Yes, chattel slaves fared far worse than any other group. But that doesn't mean those day laborers were — to use the modern parlance — "privileged" by the existence of the slave economy. In practice, it significantly lowered their income.

So, once again we are left with the problem of determining who is legally and morally responsible for paying out these reparations in any way connected to identifying truly guilty parties. In practice, it's nearly impossible, although government being what it is, advocates for reparations are likely to simply demand that all the taxpayers foot the bill to pay one identifiable interest group, whether or not the taxpayers involved can be shown to have any direct involvement in the perpetuation or spread of slavery.

Ultimately, the issue shouldn't even be regarded as a complicated one. If "reparations" are truly that, then they can only be based on handing over stolen property from the thief to the victim (or their heirs). So long as these specific individuals are not identified, then the policy being discussed has nothing to do with reparations. It's just a wealth redistribution scheme.

    TRANSCRIPT:

    2:42 p.m. EDT

    MR PALLADINO: Good afternoon, everybody.

    QUESTION: Good afternoon.

    MR PALLADINO: Afternoon. At the top today, we are privileged to have with us our Special Representative for Venezuela Elliott Abrams. He’ll be – make a few remarks and be willing to take some questions. At the conclusion of the briefing, we also have some subject matter experts from our Bureau of Consular Affairs. If there are additional questions on matters pertaining to American citizens that you’d like to dive into a little bit, we’ll make them available as well.

    QUESTION: American citizens anywhere or in Venezuela?

    MR PALLADINO: We’re talking – that’s for Venezuela we’re talking about today. Okay? Great. Mr. Abrams, thanks.

    QUESTION: Then you’re going to --

    MR PALLADINO: We have a normal briefing as well.

    MR ABRAMS: Thank you. Happy to be here for my daily briefing. (Laughter.)

    QUESTION: You are becoming quite a fixture up there.

    QUESTION: You’re setting a good example.

    MR ABRAMS: Oh.

    QUESTION: There may be an opening for a spokesman. (Laughter.)

    MR ABRAMS: I wouldn’t touch that with a 20-foot pole. (Laughter.)

    On January 23rd and January 24th, we announced and began a process of bringing back to the United States the great majority of Americans who work at the U.S. embassy in Caracas. The decision announced yesterday is, in a sense, a follow-on to that initial decision and is the product of the same considerations for the conditions in Caracas, which make it so difficult to continue keeping the embassy staffed there, and for the general situation in Caracas.

    If you think back, it’s only six weeks ago, but the situation in Caracas has deteriorated very considerably in that period and especially in the last few days since the blackouts began on Friday. So the Secretary made that decision.

    You may have seen the interviews he did this morning. I’ll just read one paragraph: “We made the decision yesterday that it just was prudent to get these folks back. The situation there is deteriorating. The Maduro regime’s horrific leadership over the last year[s] has just made life there so difficult, it began to make it more difficult for the United States to take the actions that it needed to do to support the Venezuelan people. So we concluded this was simply the right step to take,” and it “was the right time to take it.”

    I should say that this does not represent any change in U.S. policy toward Venezuela nor does it represent any reduction in the commitment we have to the people of Venezuela and to their struggle for democracy. You will see very soon a significant number of additional visa revocations. You will see in the coming days some very significant additional sanctions and the international group, of which we are a part – that includes most EU countries, the Lima Group, Canada, the U.S. – continues to do its work.

    Why don’t I stop there and we’ll take some questions.

    MR PALLADINO: We’ll start with Associated Press.

    QUESTION: Thanks. I’m curious to know what the Secretary meant by saying that the presence of – continued presence of any American diplomats in Caracas was a constraint on policy. He didn’t quite explain. What exactly did their presence constrain, number one?

    Number two, you talked about the blackouts and all this kind of thing, but presumably there are no family members there. It was very, very – only a handful of staffers still at the embassy. Presumably, they have generators, right?

    MR ABRAMS: Generators require fuel, the embassy requires water.

    QUESTION: Okay.

    MR ABRAMS: The embassy’s own situation also had a – let’s say a finite number of days.

    QUESTION: Okay. All right. So can you explain what exactly the constraint was on – what kinds of policies were being constrained by the presence --

    MR ABRAMS: Well, I don’t --

    QUESTION: Especially because yesterday, the Secretary said that – when he was asked about support for – U.S. support for Juan Guaido, said that as long as our team is on the ground in Caracas, you’d continue to provide the same kinds of support that you do. Well, now that’s gone or very soon will be gone, so I don’t understand how these – those mesh.

    MR ABRAMS: Well, we will – we will – obviously it makes it more difficult to meet with all Venezuelans when the – we – when the team is not on the ground. I’m kind of reluctant to sort of try to parse the Secretary’s words, but let me just say that in every decision we made – every decision, decisions on diplomatic activities, on visas, on sanctions – the safety of that staff was a key consideration. And that was something that weighed very heavily on our mind every day, literally every day. So I think that’s – I think that was what the Secretary was referring to, and I’ll just leave it at that.

    QUESTION: Okay, but when you said it doesn’t reflect a change in policy --

    MR ABRAMS: No.

    QUESTION: -- it means that it was not intended to be some kind of hint or harbinger of military intervention or some kind of use of force?

    MR ABRAMS: Nothing has changed. We continue to say, because it is true, all options are on the table.

    QUESTION: But?

    MR ABRAMS: But they did not change yesterday.

    MR PALLADINO: There we go. Let’s go Michelle, CNN.

    QUESTION: So just hours before this statement came out from the Secretary we heard from the Secretary on Venezuela and he made no mention of the need to get people out. In fact, he really didn’t talk about U.S. people at the embassy there. So what changed between the time we spoke to him and close to midnight when he put this out?

    MR ABRAMS: He made his final decision. We have been talking about this literally – literally – every day. I’ve only been here six weeks, but that was right after the decision to move most of the people from the embassy back to the United States. We have had daily phone calls, daily meetings about this question, been before the Secretary, and he made his decision.

    QUESTION: And then that line that Matt mentioned, “constraint on U.S. policy” – that reads like a threat. I mean, it’s obviously curious. So should Maduro see that line as a threat?

    MR ABRAMS: I can only repeat what the President has said: All options are always on the table.

    MR PALLADINO: Let’s go to AFP.

    QUESTION: Yes. Just to – thank you. Just to follow on on this constraint thing, is there a link between the decision of withdrawing all the diplomats and some actions you might want to take to make sure the aid, which is at the border, come inside Venezuela?

    MR ABRAMS: No.

    MR PALLADINO: Reuters.

    QUESTION: Hello, Mr. Abrams. Two questions. One is: Who do you leave the embassy to? Do you appoint a protective power? What happens to the embassy, how do you ensure, number one.

    MR ABRAMS: Right.

    QUESTION: Number two: We understand that the decision was made because the talks with the Venezuelans collapsed late yesterday and that that – this is according to the Venezuelans – that’s what led to this. Did you – did the U.S. get any kind of direct threat from Maduro’s government that something was going to happen?

    MR ABRAMS: On the first part, normally we would get a protecting power, and that is, I think, what we’ll do here, and we are in discussions now about that. What will happen to the embassy grounds, the embassy physically, let’s say, is something that we then discuss with the protecting power, with potential protecting powers. So we don’t have a final answer on that, and when we do we’ll announce it.

    On the regime, you know on --

    QUESTION: Are you in discussions with other countries to – as to who will be the protecting power?

    MR ABRAMS: Yes. We are in discussions.

    QUESTION: But it hasn’t been decided who?

    MR ABRAMS: Right. About – we are trying to decide on a protecting power. January 23rd, the Secretary said the United States does not recognize the Maduro regime as the government of Venezuela. Accordingly, the United States does not consider former President Nicolas Maduro to have the legal authority to break diplomatic relations with the United States or to declare our diplomats persona non grata. So from our point of view, the regime cannot make a decision about whether we stay or go. And as a matter of fact, the National Assembly yesterday said we have the legal authority to stay, and they are the legitimate government of Venezuela. But the regime also cannot, in our view, provide security for the embassy, and the situation in Caracas is deteriorating. So our decision was made really fundamentally without regard to what the regime wants or thinks.

    MR PALLADINO: Let’s go with Los Angeles Times.

    QUESTION: Thank you. Just to follow on Lesley, so there were talks going on between the Venezuelans and you guys about creating an interest section or something like that and then the Venezuelans gave you 72 hours to leave. Is that not true?

    MR ABRAMS: No, we have had – as you know, we’ve talked about this before. I have – I had a couple of meetings with the de facto regime Foreign Minister Arreaza. And those meetings were essentially about exactly this. So this subject has been out there for a long time. But we made a decision at one point, and you talked about it here – I’ve certainly talked about it in public – that an interest section was really not appropriate. You do an interest section where there is no government that you consider legitimate. There is a legitimate government in Venezuela, from our point of view. Maybe that would have satisfied some demands of the regime, but it was not something that the Untied States was going to do. So that really was off the table.

    QUESTION: And 72 hours? The deadline?

    MR ABRAMS: Well, as I said, we do not believe the regime, on the one hand, has the ability to tell us when to leave, on the other hand, doesn’t have the ability to protect us if we stay.

    MR PALLADINO: Let’s go to Washington Post.

    QUESTION: Mr. Abrams, the Maduro government’s attorney general announced that Juan Guaido is going to be investigated for – on suspicion of sabotage in the blackout. Does the departure of the U.S. diplomats put him in a weaker position at all, at a time when he would seem to be under greater threat?

    MR ABRAMS: First, we’ve seen that as well, and it’s a threat against Interim President Guaido. They have made such threats before. They’ve talked about going after him on one basis or another, and we also know that the supreme court, the TSJ, has essentially been packed by the regime. So that’s a – that report is of real concern. I don’t think the regime is going to base its decision on that, on our presence or absence, any more than it made the decision on whether to arrest him upon his return on the basis of whether we were there or not there. I think it’s largely a matter of how they think the public, the Venezuelan public, will react.

    QUESTION: You have any warnings to the government or any message to them?

    MR ABRAMS: We have --

    QUESTION: Should they be contemplating arresting him on this?

    MR ABRAMS: I think – I hope they’re aware of the fact that there are 54 countries, some important countries, that consider Juan Guaido to be the legitimate interim president of Venezuela. And I think not only we but the other 53 will react immediately. There are a number of diplomatic and financial and economic steps that governments can take. We’ve taken many of them; other countries haven’t. I would think that the arrest, incarceration of Juan Guaido would lead a lot of countries to react very quickly.

    MR PALLADINO: Let’s go to EFE.

    QUESTION: Thank you. I want to ask you a question about the possible scenario of the Maduro government collapses. The Spain’s foreign minister today said that the U.S. asked Spain to receive Venezuelan ministers loyal to Maduro in case the Venezuelan Government collapses. So I wanted to ask you if the U.S. has actually made this petition to Spain, and what were the terms in which these petitions were made?

    MR ABRAMS: This is an old discussion. When I was assistant secretary of state for Latin America, and there were a lot of military regimes, the question of what to do with dictators arose, and it was actually Felipe Gonzalez, who was prime minister at the time, who said maybe Spain can help by taking some of these people. We’ve had some conversations with Spain. I wouldn’t say we made a request, they made an answer. We have certainly had conversations. We’ve had them with a couple of other places too, because this question may arise, and we have talked about off-ramps and we have talked about wanting some of the regime officials to leave the country as part of a transition.

    So the question therefore obviously arises: well, where would they go? And they may prefer to go to Cuba or Russia, but there are other places, and so that is a conversation we’ll continue to have. Unfortunately, none of the people at the top of the regime have yet made that decision, the decision that they should make. And as we’ve said before, we are willing to help them out in those circumstances.

    QUESTION: Can I ask a follow-up of – on that? You mentioned that they’re – the U.S. Government with Spain and a couple other places. Which ones are these other --

    MR ABRAMS: I’m not going to say, because it has not been as public as it has in the case of Spain.

    QUESTION: Thank you.

    MR PALLADINO: Let’s go to Washington Times.

    QUESTION: Thanks for coming out to talk with us. Big picture question regarding all the – all of the options on the table. Can you discuss the military option for a minute? And specifically, has the administration asked the Pentagon to draw up such an option? And assuming that it has, are you satisfied with the option that the Pentagon has, which is headed by an interim defense secretary, provided at this point?

    QUESTION: He’s a legitimate interim defense secretary. (Laughter.)

    MR ABRAMS: The President has said all options are the table. They are. Further than that it would be foolish for me to go, and I’m not going to do it.

    MR PALLADINO: Bloomberg.

    QUESTION: Mr. Abrams, can you talk a little bit more about the finite resources that the embassy is facing? I mean, it seems to be a suggestion that they’re running out of fuel and water. What were the constraints on the embassy?

    MR ABRAMS: It’s a difficult situation for the embassy. It’s a difficult situation for Venezuelans, of course, far more. I don’t believe the embassy is at this point connected to any water system. So there’s a question of how would you get fresh water. Obviously, there are continuing blackouts on and off. So the question then is: How are your generators working, and do you have enough fuel? There’s also a question of communications. If there’s no electricity, there are no communications, which obviously speaks immediately to the safety of our people.

    So the deterioration of the general situation in Caracas doesn’t affect the embassy exactly as it effects Venezuelans, but it does affect the embassy.

    QUESTION: But were you – was there any concern that there was some new or imminent security threat that the embassy might be overrun, that the Maduro regime was unable or unwilling to provide or to guarantee security?

    MR ABRAMS: We do not think that the regime is really able to provide security, and I would note that in his most recent public statement, former President Maduro spoke about calling upon the colectivos to come forward. Now, that – that’s calling for armed gangs to take over the streets, and it is obviously going to be a great worry to Venezuelans, but we noted it.

    QUESTION: I’m sorry, was that part of the – was that the deciding factor?

    MR ABRAMS: That – actually, that statement by Maduro came today. So it was not part of the decision. But the background was – and as you know, they’ve been using colectivos more in Caracas, along the borders. Perhaps it is a sign of Maduro’s lack of confidence in his own security forces. But it is by definition a breakdown of law and order.

    MR PALLADINO: Let’s go Wall Street Journal.

    QUESTION: Thank you. You said that the decision to remove embassy personnel doesn’t represent a policy change by the United States, but you have acknowledged that it would make it more difficult to meet with Venezuelans, both the Maduro regime and the Guaido government. So functionally, how is the U.S. going to proceed without an embassy staff on the ground? Are you just – are you going to remove them to nearby countries? Are they coming back to the States? What is the plan?

    MR ABRAMS: Who to nearby countries? The Americans?

    QUESTION: Yes.

    MR ABRAMS: The Americans will come back here to Washington, which is what the much larger group of Americans from the embassy in January did. I am very – I am one of the beneficiaries of this, because my team is made up in great part of people from Embassy Caracas, and the WHA team on Venezuela was also greatly enriched by their presence. Now, obviously people in the summer will go on to whatever forward assignments they had.

    We will – as I said, it’ll be harder, because we’re not going to be able to do the face-to-face meetings we were doing. Admittedly, we were not able to do a lot of face-to-face meetings because the embassy staff had become quite small. But it wasn’t – so it will be something that we’re going to have to try to accomplish outside of Venezuela or by telephone or by emails and other forms of communication.

    QUESTION: And are you able to give us even just rough estimates of the number of people we’re talking about?

    MR ABRAMS: No, we – I’m told we just – by the Diplomatic Security people we just don’t do that.

    MR PALLADINO: Let’s go to Fox.

    QUESTION: At the top you said that significant sanctions would be coming in the coming days. Can you elaborate a little bit on that? Are they targeting financial institutions or country-specific? The Secretary said yesterday a handful of nations are providing aid and comfort to the Maduro regime.

    MR ABRAMS: Well, we did, you know, Friday sanction a Russian-Venezuelan bank, one that was basically 50/50 owned by Russian and Venezuelan state institutions. There will be more sanctions of financial institutions – I think I would leave it at that – and more visa revocations coming very soon.

    QUESTION: Like today?

    MR ABRAMS: Possible. Possible.

    QUESTION: How about Turkey?

    MR PALLADINO: No, no Turkey. Voice of America, please.

    QUESTION: Well, Turkey and Venezuela is actually a thing.

    QUESTION: Yes.

    MR PALLADINO: Turkey and Venezuela. Okay.

    QUESTION: Yes, that’s what I – that’s what I mean.

    MR PALLADINO: Go ahead, Laurie. Okay, go ahead.

    QUESTION: Thank you. To follow up on this question, Turkey’s support for – is prominent among those countries supporting the Maduro regime, including through the gold trade. What – do you have a comment on that and are you considering the possibility of secondary sanctions?

    MR ABRAMS: Well, those are two different questions. We – Turkey’s support for the Maduro regime obviously is completely contrary to U.S. policy and very unhelpful, and we will continue to take a look at the ways in which that support takes place, and in the context of sanctions by Treasury. Maybe I should leave it at that.

    MR PALLADINO: Okay, fair enough. Voice of America.

    QUESTION: Thank you. So a follow-up on Nick’s question. Is yesterday’s sanction against the bank based in Russia a secondary sanction? And is it the beginning of more sanctions against foreign financial institutions? That’s number one, and number two: Can you please give us a sense if there is any diplomatic effort to bring China on board? Thank you.

    MR ABRAMS: The bank – the sanctions of Friday on the Russian-Venezuelan bank were not secondary sanctions. We have not done any secondary sanctions. The – we will continue to make efforts to bring China aboard. We have told – in various places have told the Chinese that we think if their concern is in essence getting their money back, they’ll never get it back from the bankrupt Maduro regime and from a basically destroyed Venezuelan economy. As the Secretary explained yesterday, the only way they’ll get it back is when Venezuela returns to prosperity, which it won’t do under Nicolas Maduro. Obviously they haven’t changed their policy yet, but we will continue to talk about that.

    QUESTION: Will they be subject to potential sanction?

    MR ABRAMS: Well, we have not done secondary sanctions. That’s always one of the options on the table.

    MR PALLADINO: Last one. Let’s – someone new. (Off-mike.)

    QUESTION: Really?

    QUESTION: NTN24, Emiliana Molina, Mr. Abrams. So removing U.S. diplomats and bringing them back to D.C., is this perhaps a show of lack of confidence from the U.S. in Juan Guaido’s government to restore democracy, and what does this mean for his government? Some experts are saying that this looks bad for Guaido.

    MR ABRAMS: It certainly is not a display of any lack of confidence in him. The fact is that today the regime has the guns. The National Assembly and Interim President Guaido are trying, through exclusively peaceful means, to bring democracy back to Venezuela, and that is obviously something we and dozens of other countries support. It is a reflection of the deterioration that we see on the ground in Venezuela, and it is in essence a follow-up to the major part of the decision, which was made on January 24th, to take most of the embassy staff. It’s – we left a few people there, not many, but it’s really the same logic. Our support for Interim President Guaido is absolutely undiminished, and I think, more importantly, the support of the Venezuelan people for him is undiminished.

    MR PALLADINO: Perfect. All right.

    MR ABRAMS: Okay.

    MR PALLADINO: Mr. Abrams, thank you very much.

    QUESTION: Thank you.

    MR ABRAMS: Thank you. Should I say see you tomorrow?

    MR PALLADINO: Yeah. No, no, no, no, no, no, no. (Laughter.)

    QUESTION: Or later this afternoon. (Laughter.)

    QUESTION: Robert, are some of these experts (inaudible)?

    MR PALLADINO: Some of our subject matter experts remain in the room, and so let’s get through some of our other issues today and then I’d be happy to make them available if you’ve got some specific questions that you’d like to ask on the subject of consular services in Venezuela, okay?

    QUESTION: You’re going to make them sit through the whole press briefing?

    MR PALLADINO: I’m going to apologize in advance. You are going to have to listen to some other things, it’s true, so all right. Thank you. All right.

    Let’s start with this: We are outraged to hear reports that the Iranian regime sentenced Iranian human rights defender and women’s rights activist Nasrin Sotoudeh to 38 years in prison and 148 lashes. This sentence is beyond barbaric. Her alleged crime was advocating for Iranian women’s rights and for defending other Iranian women who were arrested by the regime for peacefully protesting the mandatory hijab law. Nasrin was sentenced in absentia without a fair trial by the notorious revolutionary court, which is led by Judge Moghiseh, an accused human rights violator.

    In addition, just this week, the regime cynically announced that as they enter the fifth decade of the Iranian Revolution, they would appoint Ebrahim Raisi, a man involved in mass summary executions of prisoners of conscience, as the head of the regime’s judiciary. The Iranian regime makes a mockery of the entire legal system in Iran, placing innocent people at the mercy of accused human rights violators. We condemn Nasrin’s sentence in the strongest possible terms and call on all of our partners and allies to speak out and demand the release of this courageous human rights defender and all those arbitrarily detained immediately. The Iranian people deserve a government that respects their legitimate demands and the human rights of all in Iran, not one that subjects them to prosecution in a justice system led by accused human rights violators.

    And we are pleased to have a group of teachers and students from Oakton, Virginia with us today. They’re in the back row. Welcome. They’re visiting the State Department as part of their history course and they are here to learn about American foreign policy. So welcome, we’re happy that you could join us, and – yeah, don’t ask questions. Perfect, all right. (Laughter.)

    Great. Questions?

    QUESTION: Yeah. Robert, I mean, this is going to be for the end. I would just like to know from the consular – roughly how many Americans or people, dual American citizens they estimate – I know that there’s no exact figure. You can never be exact, but like, is it tens of thousands, hundreds of – I mean, what’s the population? And how much of a difference is this going to be mean with – it was only a handful of people at the embassy in Caracas anyway, so there couldn’t – must have been very limited what they could do for people who needed assistance. So I mean, is – what’s the actual impact on that?

    And then more broadly on Venezuela, not for the CA people, although maybe: What is the – what’s the current standing of this debate over TPS or some other kind of – if that’s determined not to be applicable in this Venezuela situation, some other mechanism that would allow Venezuelans to stay in the U.S. beyond what Special Representative Abrams has spoken about, the 74,000 who are already in this asylum pipeline?

    MR PALLADINO: Regarding American citizens, I will defer on some of the more specifics on what we’re able to do to some of the folks that we have with us today, but we – I can say at the top that we will hold the Maduro regime directly responsible for the safety and welfare of United States citizens that are in Venezuela, and like our travel advisory says, we – U.S. citizens – U.S. citizens residing in or traveling in Venezuela should strongly consider departing Venezuela. That’s something we’ve said previously and something that we reiterate. We’re pursuing all possible possibilities to secure travel options for U.S. citizens, and we will be announcing additional information for foreign government partners in the days that follow. We continue to advise American citizens to avoid demonstrations and large gatherings and to monitor local media for updates.

    To repeat, the travel advisory in Venezuela remains the same, and that is Level Four, do not travel. And I’ll leave it at that.

    QUESTION: TPS or some other --

    MR PALLADINO: I don’t have any updates on that issue today. I don’t want to get ahead. It’s something that’s being looked at, I know, but I don’t have any information to --

    QUESTION: But what exactly is being looked at? Some alternate mechanism? Has it been – has it actually been decided at some – by – has it actually – has the administration actually decided that TPS in the case of Venezuela is not the right – is not the applicable vehicle or mechanism for --

    MR PALLADINO: I don’t have any policy announcements to make on that. It’s just something – I don’t have any policy announcements to make.

    QUESTION: I have a follow-up just – I don’t know if I didn’t hear properly. Are you saying you’re pursuing all options as to get U.S. citizens out of Venezuela?

    MR PALLADINO: No, no. That’s something we do to help facilitate, not --

    QUESTION: To facilitate.

    MR PALLADINO: Yes, there’s no – yes.

    QUESTION: Okay.

    MR PALLADINO: Okay. Correct.

    Michelle.

    QUESTION: So with the situation deteriorating enough to now pull everybody out of the embassy, do you feel it necessary to put out additional information to all American citizens there, or do you feel like the “do not travel” sort of stands for itself?

    MR PALLADINO: Well, we routinely look at our travel information, and given that circumstances are changing, I would not think it – I would think – I would expect that additional information would be updated and provided in short order. I don’t think it’s going to change from Travel Four, that said, okay – from Level Four.

    QUESTION: Yeah, the advice that you – the advice that you last gave to – that you strongly, whatever that exact wording is, urge them to --

    MR PALLADINO: Yeah, “do not travel” was our – that’s our advice, okay?

    QUESTION: That’s – okay, that’s – but for those who are already there, I mean, the current language you said is, like, strongly suggest that they leave or something to that effect. Is that language from the alert going to be updated to, like, get out now?

    MR PALLADINO: That’s – I don’t want to preview what’s being done. It’s being looked at and reviewed, and in short order – safety of American citizens is one of the highest priorities of the State Department. It’s something that we are constantly reviewing, and as situations on the ground change, we review these things regularly and update them.

    Carol.

    QUESTION: Robert, after the American diplomats leave, will the local staff remain or will they – will they still be going into work and maybe protecting the property? And if not, will you be giving things like any remaining food and water that you have to them to take home, or can you tell me what --

    MR PALLADINO: I don’t have any additional information on that topic.

    (Inaudible.) Please, go ahead, Christina.

    QUESTION: Thanks. Can you give us – can you give us some guidance on when we might see the evacuation start? I’m hearing the end of the week. Does that sound about right? Is there an evacuation plan in the works? Can you give us, like, an update on where that is? Commercial? Are we going to send transports down?

    MR PALLADINO: We’re not going to get – the Secretary last night in his statement and tweet indicated this week, and we’re not going to get into details on when exactly or how exactly that will be transpiring.

    QUESTION: And just a follow-up, my colleagues asked a couple times but it wasn’t quite answered – Mr. Abrams didn’t quite answer the question when he was asked whether there had been some sort of new specific threat from the Maduro regime. He kept saying we don’t trust them to protect our diplomats, but can you say definitively, yes or no, if there had been some sort of new threat in the last couple hours that prompted this decision by the Secretary?

    MR PALLADINO: I have nothing beyond what Mr. Abrams said. I don’t.

    Please.

    QUESTION: Did you accept the premise of her first question, which was that this is an evacuation, or did you just not --

    MR PALLADINO: This is – no. This is – I did not. This is – we’re withdrawing U.S. personnel.

    QUESTION: Right, but do you consider it to be an evacuation?

    MR PALLADINO: No.

    QUESTION: Are you going in – is this Saigon ’75?

    MR PALLADINO: We’re withdrawing our personnel in an orderly fashion. The security of our people is paramount.

    Please. Said, please.

    QUESTION: Robert, thank you. Change topics. Okay.

    QUESTION: Could I just have one real quick question? Will the embassy be closed? Will that be the way to describe it? How would you describe --

    MR PALLADINO: I would not say it’s closed, no.

    QUESTION: How – when --

    MR PALLADINO: I would say – the legal status of the embassy – I would say we’re withdrawing from the embassy, but I believe closure is a matter of legality, and that’s not something that we have decided. So this is interim, I would say.

    QUESTION: One more on Venezuela?

    MR PALLADINO: Said, please go ahead.

    QUESTION: Yes, thank you. Changing topics, very quickly, Israel is set to deport the Human Rights Watch director for the West Bank because of a tweet, I guess. He’s a U.S. citizen. Are you aware of that? And what will you do to help him stay and conduct his job?

    MR PALLADINO: We are aware of those reports, and yes, the answer is --

    QUESTION: And what are you offering him? Aid? Help? Has he come – has he gone to the – not the consulate but the embassy?

    MR PALLADINO: I’m not aware of anything like that, Said.

    QUESTION: Okay. All right. Let me move on to another --

    QUESTION: Well, wait a second. Let’s stay.

    MR PALLADINO: Sure.

    QUESTION: Just are you talking to the Israelis about this? Would you – or is it – is it that you come to the defense of American citizens any – in all countries except Israel?

    MR PALLADINO: That is not true. The United States has no greater --

    QUESTION: Okay. Well --

    MR PALLADINO: Let me finish – has no greater responsibility, priority than the safety of American citizens, the welfare of our citizens overseas. In this particular case, I’m not going to talk about specifics. But I can say, as a matter of general principle, we value freedom of expression, even in cases where we do not agree with the political views espoused, and I’ll stop there.

    QUESTION: Thank you.

    QUESTION: But did he --

    QUESTION: Okay, let me just follow-up --

    MR PALLADINO: Go ahead.

    QUESTION: -- on another issue on the Palestinian-Israeli issue. The government signed agreement, the Israeli Government, to build 23,000 housing units in occupied East Jerusalem. And also, there’s been such an uptick in settlements and so on. I know that you stick to your policy, but has there been – I mean, past administrations would issue concern from time to time, say, “We’re concerned about the acceleration of settlement building,” and so on. What is your position on this latest thing, since we haven’t heard anything from this administration on settlements?

    MR PALLADINO: The President has made his position on settlements clear. This is something we’ve talked about before. The Israeli Government has also made clear that its intent is to adopt a policy regarding settlement activity that takes into account the President’s concerns, that takes those into consideration. And that’s something that we welcome.

    QUESTION: And do you think that they have – I mean since this President’s been in office for the past two years, that they took his concern into consideration?

    MR PALLADINO: We welcome the Israeli Government’s decision to take the President’s views into consideration, and I would just reiterate what the President has said repeatedly, that the administration is committed to pursuing a comprehensive peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

    QUESTION: Robert?

    MR PALLADINO: Laurie.

    QUESTION: (Off-mike.)

    QUESTION: The Western press yesterday ran headlines like, “Iran’s Rouhani in Iraq for His Third Visit to Offset U.S. Sanctions.” Is it still your position that Iraq has to abide by the Iran sanctions?

    MR PALLADINO: As far as sanctions go, as you know, a waiver was granted to Iraq to allow it to continue to pay for its electricity imports from Iran. And that has helped Iraq limit electricity shortages in the south since the re-imposition of sanctions that took place in November. And we’re going to continue to discuss Iran-related sanctions with our partners in Iraq to ensure continued compliance. And finally, any decisions related to those sanctions waivers, they’re at the discretion of the Secretary of State, and I would leave it there.

    QUESTION: Robert?

    QUESTION: And there are two issues in specific. One has to do with banking and reports that Iraq and Iran will establish a joint bank, which will allow Iran to circumvent sanctions. And the second has to do with a railroad from Iran to Basra, which would allow Iran to send military supplies to its proxies in Iraq, Lebanon, and Syria. Is that compatible with your understanding of sanctions?

    MR PALLADINO: Laurie, I don’t have any information on these proposals that you’re identifying today, so I’m going to refrain from talking on them.

    QUESTION: Robert --

    QUESTION: (Off-mike.)

    MR PALLADINO: Yep. Let’s go --

    QUESTION: Could you give us your reaction, the U.S. reaction, on President Bouteflika of Algeria not to seek a fifth term but to stay – to postpone the election and to stay in power, at least until the end of the year and probably after that?

    MR PALLADINO: We support efforts in Algeria to chart a new path forward based on dialogue that reflects the will of all Algerians and their aspirations for a peaceful and prosperous future.

    QUESTION: That’s all?

    MR PALLADINO: Well, we respect the rights of the Algerians to assemble and peacefully express their views, and we’re closely monitoring reports that Algeria’s elections have been postponed. We support the right of the Algerian people to vote in a free and fair election, as we do around the world.

    QUESTION: You think it’s a good thing that he’s not seeking a fifth term?

    MR PALLADINO: We support efforts in Algeria to chart a new path forward, and I’ll leave it at that.

    QUESTION: Robert?

    QUESTION: Robert?

    MR PALLADINO: Please. Afghanistan.

    QUESTION: Ambassador Khalilzad tweeted a short while ago that they’re – the – the two parties agreed in – in draft to some sort of proposal on the U.S. withdrawal as well as the Taliban providing safe haven in Afghanistan to terror groups. Can you share any more details on what that draft looks like, whether it’s – there’s a timetable now on U.S. withdrawal?

    MR PALLADINO: I did see those tweets. Special Representative Khalilzad and a team representing agencies across the United States Government concluded today talks with the Taliban delegation in Doha, and that’s what he was tweeting about. These have been the most substantive talks with the Taliban to date. We’ve received reports back from Special Representative Khalilzad that they’ve had meaningful progress. The Taliban have agreed that peace will require both sides to fully address four core issues, and they are: counterterrorism assurances, troop withdrawal, intra-Afghan dialogue, and a comprehensive ceasefire.

    In this round of talks, we were able to move to agreement in draft on the first two principles – counterterrorism assurances and troop withdrawal. And when that agreement, in draft, is finalized, the Taliban and an inclusive Afghan negotiating team that includes the Afghan Government and other Afghans will begin intra-Afghan negotiations of a political settlement and comprehensive ceasefire.

    And I’d also add that Special Representative Khalilzad will be returning to Washington. He’ll be consulting with Secretary Pompeo as well as the interagency and also partner countries in this process. Much work remains to be done. As Special Representative Khalilzad has said before, “nothing is agreed until everything is agreed.”

    QUESTION: So you can’t share any details then of what was agreed to in that draft?

    MR PALLADINO: I’m not going to be able to go into details on the results of the just concluded and ongoing talks.

    QUESTION: Robert?

    QUESTION: Robert?

    QUESTION: Second part of this though, as you said and as the ambassador tweeted, once this agreement in draft is finalized, then those intra-Afghan party talks will begin. Is that a commitment from the Taliban that they will engage, once this agreement is finalized, with the Afghan Government?

    MR PALLADINO: I’m not going to be able to go into more details on the agreement itself, because they’re private conversations, and we want to give the parties time to work things out and to work out these issues in private. But intra-Afghan dialogue that includes the Afghan Government as well as the Taliban and other Afghans encourages – is something that we’re very much focused on and remains part of what we’re pursuing.

    QUESTION: Can I ask you, on a separate topic, your statement at the beginning on Iran and the sentencing of a women’s rights activist: Why didn’t you issue a similar statement when Saudi Arabia arrested women rights activists there, including a State Department International Women of Courage Award winner, Samar Badawi?

    MR PALLADINO: We’ve – I mean, this particular case really was barbaric. Many others have spoken out on this as well. Thirty-eight – this is a – basically, a lawyer representing women clients that’s been sentenced to 38 years and 148 lashes. That kind of barbarism is something that must be called out.

    In regards to other countries, Secretary Pompeo – we’ve spoken about – we speak about human rights, frankly, when we engage – when we travel the world engaging partners, allies. We do this regularly. It’s something that we stand for. It’s something that we’ll continue to do.

    QUESTION: But why not do it from the podium in a similar fashion?

    MR PALLADINO: I’m not sure what specific case you’re referring to. We choose different ways to communicate our – to promote the value – human rights values. It’s something we’re going to continue to be outspoken about and we raise this regularly with all partners.

    Sure, Janne. Please, go ahead.

    QUESTION: Thank you very much, Robert. On South Korea, not North Korea this time.

    MR PALLADINO: Okay.

    QUESTION: Okay. The – reported by the South Korean Channel A News, the former unification minister of South Korea, Jeong Se-hyun, said that the United States National Security Advisor John Bolton is a very unlucky person. I think the insulting language about John Bolton is a (inaudible) about – against the American people. How do U.S. react diplomatically?

    MR PALLADINO: Yeah, I haven’t seen that report and I’m – I have no reaction. Okay.

    QUESTION: Because he blaming about Hanoi talks, so John Bolton made the decisions break down this U.S.-North Korea summit. Can you find that out?

    MR PALLADINO: I would just say that the lead negotiator for the United States of America is the President of the United States, and that’s the President’s decision.

    QUESTION: Robert --

    QUESTION: That’s President’s decision. Okay. Thank you.

    QUESTION: Can I ask about the Ethiopian Airlines crash? It’s my understanding that Ethiopia has a lot of control over the investigation, at least at this point. Is the State Department working with Ethiopian authorities to make sure U.S. investigators have access to black boxes?

    MR PALLADINO: In response to the Government of Ethiopia’s request, we have sent a team from the United States National Transportation Safety Board. That includes the Federal Aviation Administration personnel as well. And they’re assisting in the investigation to determine the cause of death. Officials from the United States are also coordinating with INTERPOL and Ethiopian authorities in support of efforts to identify the remains of victims. These are some of the steps that the United States Government is taking to assist, and we – again, we extend our deepest condolences to all those families and the friends of those that lost their lives on that tragic accident.

    QUESTION: On Syria, Robert --

    MR PALLADINO: Please, right there.

    QUESTION: Thank you. If we can move to North Korea. Given the UN panel of experts’ findings on North Korea and sanctions, is the administration concerned that North – that the sanctions regime is not being enforced?

    MR PALLADINO: We made progress in Hanoi at the summit, and although we did not reach an agreement with North Korea, we were able to exchange detailed positions and to narrow the gap on a number of issues. Also made clear the United States expects complete denuclearization before sanctions relief. So I’d say that in response to your question, the United States and the international community have a shared understanding of what final, fully verified denuclearization entails, as well as meaningful progress, what that will constitute, what that goal looks like. And we remain ready to move forward. And I’ll leave it at that.

    QUESTION: Can I just follow quickly? Does the administration believe that there should be more economic pressure applied on North Korea?

    MR PALLADINO: We remain ready to engage North Korea. We are looking – I’m sorry, what was your question again? Increased? So we – our policy’s been explained many times; the President explained that these sanctions are the world’s sanctions and that they will be maintained until denuclearization is achieved. And I’ll leave it at that for now.

    Let’s go – last question. Michel, please.

    QUESTION: Yeah. You tweeted on Syria and building a statue of Hafez Assad in Daraa. Can you make the statement on camera, please?

    MR PALLADINO: I’m sorry, can you say it one more time, Michel?

    QUESTION: On Syria. You tweeted on building a statue of Hafez Assad in Daraa. Do you remember?

    MR PALLADINO: When was this?

    QUESTION: Before noon today.

    MR PALLADINO: Before noon. Of course. (Laughter.)

    QUESTION: If you can make the statement on camera, please.

    MR PALLADINO: (Laughter.) And what is your question? Help me establish --

    QUESTION: If you can make the statement on camera, please.

    MR PALLADINO: I need the tweet in front of me. (Laughter.)

    QUESTION: Okay. I will retweet it. You can --

    MR PALLADINO: All right, I’ll do it afterwards. If you want me to read the tweet, I’d be happy to do that. All right. All right.

    QUESTION: Quick question on Israel?

    MR PALLADINO: Shri, go ahead. Oh, I’m sorry, not Shri. Shri, go ahead. There’s your hand there.

    QUESTION: I wanted to know if you have an update on the exemption from Iran sanctions for India on oil purchases. It’s been six months since they were granted, and I think the foreign secretary is – Gokhale is scheduled to discuss them with his U.S. counterparts.

    And a second question: Is the U.S. concerned that China might block the UNSC 1267 listing request for Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar? Because Beijing made some comments yesterday that would suggest that China was potentially going to put a hold on it or block it.

    MR PALLADINO: As you point out, Foreign Secretary Gokhale is in town for high-level meetings this week at the State Department. He met with Secretary Pompeo yesterday. He’s got meetings at the White House, Department of Defense, as well as on Capitol Hill on a range of diplomatic and security issues.

    Regarding Masood Azhar, the United States and India work closely together on counterterrorism efforts, and that includes at the United Nations. And our views on Jaish-e-Mohammed and its founder are well known. JEM is a United Nations-designated terrorist group. Azhar is the founder and the leader of JEM, and he meets the criteria for designation by the United Nations. JEM has been responsible for numerous terrorist attacks and is a threat to regional stability and peace.

    Now, the United Nations sanctions committee, their deliberations are confidential, and as such we don’t comment on specific matters, but we’ll continue to work with the sanctions committee to ensure that the designation list is updated and accurate.

    Regarding your specific question on China, I would say that the United States and China share a mutual interest in achieving regional stability and peace, and that a failure to designate Azhar would run counter to this goal.

    And with that, we’ll end.

    QUESTION: The National Security Advisor John Bolton welcomed the foreign – Pakistani Foreign Minister Qureshi. Do you have any readout of that?

    MR PALLADINO: The national security advisor works at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and I’d have to refer you to the White House for a readout on his call, but thanks. I don’t have a readout for you.

Donors pledge US$2.6 billion for 2019 humanitarian response International donors at a high-level event convened by the United Nations and co-hosted by the Governments of Switzerland and Sweden in Geneva on 26 February, pledged US$2.62 billion for urgent and life-saving humanitarian aid to millions of people in Yemen in 2019. “[The] pledging conference can be considered a success,” UN Secretary-General António Guterres said. “The donors have pledged 30 per cent more than last year to help address the dramatic humanitarian situation in Yemen: from US$2 billion in the pledging conference of 2018 to $2.6 billion in the pledging conference 2019”. Top donors were the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia ($750 million), UAE ($750 million) UK ($261.44 million), Kuwait ($250 million) European Union (184.42 million) and Germany ($114.16 million). The pledges, when committed, will help pay for the implementation of the 2019 Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan (YHRP). Partners operating in Yemen welcomed the support by donors at the conference, with international NGOs calling for unconditional access for Yemenis to humanitarian assistance and commercial imports in all parts of Yemen; a countrywide ceasefire, protection of humanitarian workers and an inclusive peace agreement. Partners estimate that as many as 6.5 million people are currently living in 83 hard-to-reach districts where humanitarian partners face medium or high access constraints. Out of the 83 hard-to-reach districts, 23 districts face high constraints and 60 districts face medium constraints. In 46 of these districts, access is mainly affected by conflict, including shifting frontlines especially in Al Bayda, Al Hudaydah, Sa’ada and Hajjah. “This year is going to be tough,” said Ms. Lise Grande, Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen. “This is why humanitarian partners are going to do everything possible to help civilians in Yemen to survive violence, access food, and receive the nutrition, health, WASH, shelter, education and protection support they are entitled to under international humanitarian and human rights law. We are grateful to all of the donors who generously support this operation.” UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs: To learn more about OCHA's activities, please visit https://www.unocha.org/.

          Should House Impeach Trump If He Launches Unconstitutional Wars?      Cache   Translate Page      

by Andrew Kreig


Posted: 09 Jan 2017 02:26 AM PST


U.S. House members should pledge to impeach the incoming President Trump if he starts any new wars in office without first comply with the U.S. Constitution’s requirement of a congressional declaration of war, according a non-partisan civic group that announced its plan last week.

Charles W. "Chas" Freeman
Committee for the Republic leaders identified Virginia, Ohio and Iowa as the first three states where organizers plan to rally public opinion behind a pledge by their representatives to impeach if the Executive Branch launches new "wars," which would be narrowly defined to include covert advisors and major arms supply creating new conflicts defined as war.

“Thirteen years ago,” said former U.S. Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Charles “Chas” Freeman, Jr. as he announced the grassroots campaign in Washington, DC on Jan. 5, “George W. Bush invaded Iraq without a congressional declaration of war.”
“Our nation is now mired in nine ongoing presidential wars,” continued Freeman, the chairman and a co-founder of the committee in 2003. “They have cost nearly ten trillion dollars; starved our infrastructure; crippled our liberties; and multiplied and united our enemies.”
Donald Trump button open mouth
“They have also enabled,” said Freeman (shown in a file photo), “the growth of apparently limitless presidential power to play prosecutor, judge, jury, and executioner to kill any American the President decrees is an imminent national security danger based on secret, unsubstantiated evidence.

Speakers at the campaign launch at the Metropolitan Club, located a little more than a block from the White House, stressed that their initiative was not an attempt to thwart Trump (shown on a campaign button) but was intended instead to stop a long-term erosion of Constitutional checks-and-balances on Executive Branch power. 
Freeman, whose three decades of defense and diplomacy posts included high-level positions under both Republicans and Democrats, was the first of committee board members voicing strong support. Most provided compelling personal biographical reasons about why they had reached such a momentous decision as to push for a pledge.
The other speakers included constitutional law expert, attorney and former Reagan administration FCC counsel Bruce Fein; Washington, DC Tea Party Founder Tom Whitmore; and lawyer and former Reagan Administration Defense Department Assistant Secretary for Manpower Delbert Spurlock; and investment adviser John Henry.
U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) also spoke passionately about a need for constituents to hold House members and for limits on Executive Power, including to declare war. But Massie said he would have to study the impeachment pledge for agreeing to it.U.S. House members should pledge to impeach the incoming President Trump if he starts any new wars without following the U.S. Constitution’s requirement of seeking a congressional declaration of war, according a non-partisan civic group that announced its plan last week.
Since 2003, the Committee for the Republic has held 130 conferences (termed "salons") said the group, whose board of directors is shown below.
Committee for the Republic Board
“The time for talk alone has expired,” the committee’s announcement said. “Unconstitutional wars continue to feed dysfunction in government and to corrode liberty in the United States. They turn children into orphans, wives into widows, husbands into widowers, and families into refugees, while provoking terrorist blowback.
The Committee's Board of Directors believes that patriotism demands making the Constitution in general and the warfare state in particular the battleground of national politics. It proposes to devote the Committee's January 5 salon to elaborating a proposal to do this and to encourage past and future participants in Committee activities to attend this salon and to contribute as best you can to realizing the resulting proposal.
It is past time to restore a decent respect for the Constitution and the opinions of humankind to the conduct of US foreign relations.

Interview
Michael R. Pompeo
Secretary of State
Via Teleconference
March 12, 2019


QUESTION: San Antonio’s First News with Charlie Parker, Charity McCurdy in the 24-hour news center. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Houston, Texas today for the CERAWeek conference all about energy, in particular America.

Mr. Secretary, appreciate the visit this morning, but before we talk about what’s going on here in Texas, in particular Houston today, have to ask you about last night and what’s currently going on in Venezuela. Back in January, the decision to withdraw all dependence and reduce embassy staff to a minimum, and then your announcement last night that it’s time for everybody to get out.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Charlie, thanks for having me on the show. It’s great to be in Texas. We did in fact make the decision last night that we needed to remove the remaining folks we had on the ground there in Caracas. The situation is continuing to deteriorate. We’ve all seen the power outages – food, water all becoming more and more difficult – and we wanted to make sure we kept all the Americans working for the United States Government safe and get them back home.

QUESTION: Yeah, and the international effort to get Maduro out – well, I say international, not counting China, Russia, and Cuba – if things are to this point, if things are this bad and probably looking like they could get worse, what are the options? What do we do in Venezuela?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Well, the Venezuelan people have set the direction very clearly. They want Maduro gone. The Interim President Juan Guaido is leading an effort to get humanitarian assistance and the American taxpayers have been incredibly generous. Over 200 metric tons of food and hygiene kits and medicine on the ground, we haven’t been able to get them in. The Maduro regime has denied food to starving people and medicine to the sick. It’s really, really evil. And we need to continue to work to deliver. The Venezuelan people deserve it. This is a once-proud, resource-rich nation, and I’m confident. One of the reasons I’m here in Texas is to talk about energy, and Venezuela has it. We need to return the capacity of Venezuela to produce and create wealth for the Venezuelan people, and we’re working diligently with all of our partners in South and Central America and Europe to hopefully achieve that here as quickly as possible. The time is drawing short.

QUESTION: Secretary Pompeo, good morning. This is Charity McCurdy. As you mentioned, you’re in Houston to talk about America’s energy revolution, and the U.S. is on pace to overtake Saudi Arabia and Russia as the world’s biggest oil producer. As you know, Texas’s Permian Basin is a major player in that. What’s being done by the Trump administration to address pipeline capacity to ensure this production growth continues?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Well, Charity, great question, and incredibly important. First, I think the administration’s done an awful lot to get us where we are today, to reduce regulation, to make permitting faster. I was in this business for a bunch of years before I entered government service. I ran a company that made pumping units. I’ve spent a lot of time in Midland, Odessa, East Texas. I know the industry well. We now need to take all this product that we’ve got in the Permian Basin, and frankly in other places in America too, and make sure that we can get it to markets not only through pipelines here, but my task as America’s most senior diplomat is to make sure that there are markets available around the world, that the Europeans and Asia – they’re prepared to buy not only our crude oil, but our natural gas so that we can continue to create wealth here in America. And importantly, it has deep national security implications as well if we’re successful at this.

QUESTION: We’re talking to the Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo. Obviously when it comes to energy, you got to be strong, you got to grow, you got to integrate, diversify, and advance energy security. Just exactly what does that mean, Mr. Secretary, to advance energy security?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Everywhere I travel – I was in the Philippines last week and in Vietnam, I’ll be in the Middle East next week, then I’ll be back on to Europe – no matter which country I go to, they’re very focused on their own energy security. What does that mean? It means they have the capacity to deliver the energy that their citizens need to heat and cool their homes, that they have what they need for their infrastructure, for their businesses. And they want to get it from friends and allies and partners, and they don’t want to have to rely on adversaries who, when times get tough, can cut them off or raise prices or make their life difficult or, frankly, use energy to coerce them.

And so this American boom, this skyrocketing of energy production – you talked about us being number one in the world in crude oil exports. We’re going to approach that and natural gas before too long. Our ability to deliver that to our friends and partners around the world creates enormous security for people here in Texas and all across America.

QUESTION: We appreciate what you do and I guess on a light note, I’d like – I wish you got frequent flyer miles.

SECRETARY POMPEO: (Laughter.) Doesn’t quite work that way, but it is an incredible privilege to represent America around the world.

QUESTION: And we are glad that you do, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you very much. You all have a good day.

          Arabs-Muslims or White Europeans .. who are really racist ?!      Cache   Translate Page      

In April 2014, The British newspaper ‘The Independent’ have reported that Saudi Arabia has criticised Norway's human rights record during the United Nations' Universal Periodic Review, in which 14 States are scheduled to have their human rights records examined. Russia meanwhile called for Norway to clamp down on expressions of religious intolerance and and criticised the country’s child welfare system.

The Norwegian foreign minister commented on this criticism saying “It is a paradox that countries which do not support fundamental human rights have influence on the council, but that is the United Nations,”

Months later, The Egyptian government took an advantage of the civilians killing incidents which some American police officers was involved in to direct a sharp criticism toward what they consider as a clear human rights violations on the American soils. Meanwhile, the Egyptian police wrote on their Facebook official page giving a “tips” to the american police officers about how to handle the peaceful demonstrations without causing human lives loses, the thing which made some activists making fun of the Egyptian government’s contradictory behavior, as it have a bad reputation concerning human rights and that the police and army have killed hundreds of protesters and detainees as a result of an excessive use of violence and physical torture in the past few years !!


I always memorize this incidents and other similar situations when some Arabs and Muslims start accusing the west of practicing racism and discrimination against immigrants, because many of those who take the lead in this criticism do not care at all about discrimination, racism and all kinds of human rights violations, and some of them practice such violations and praising it without shaking single eyelid. but they forget about that and direct those accusations toward the west with what they are themselves doing as they are trying to throw dust in eyes..
The western world are always chased by its colonial history which was marred by an explicit racism practices and violations of human dignity in the countries which were occupied during the past centuries. and despite the fact that all of those crimes and violations became part of a history irrelevant to our current reality, and despite the fact that such practices were condemned, regretted and apologized for by the past colonizing countries, however, some young Europeans who had no connection at all with such violations away from that they read and heard about it inherited a guilt feeling from their ancestors; a feeling which being fed by the increase of the immigration from the post colonized countries to Europe, where some Europeans feel guilt combined with a moral responsibility for any actual or possible sufferings might those immigrants go through, and they got a painful feeling that those inherited guilt is impossible to be erased or forgotten. Their daily life and their dealings with others is a personification of this inherited guilt. I met with many of them whose sensitivity toward racism and discrimination touch even some things might not be noticeable by those who is most likely targeted with discrimination and racism!!

Last December, I went with a friend of mine who is french living in Berlin to watch “The magic flute” opera in Berlin opera house. That was my first time i watch this show in theater after i watched it many times on screens. The show started and ten minutes passed before my friend started expressing intense anger and resentment over the appearance of an actor on the stage with a face painted in black as he played one of the opera’s roles. My friend told me that he is not able to continue the show and that he will wait for me outside.

On our way back my friend start explaining to me why he was angry. he said that he can’t accept when a white actors painting their faces in black to characterize black people and he consider it racist and humiliating. He also claimed that the opera houses don’t accept black people to act on the stage. I asked him if he would feel better if this role was played by a real black man? He silenced a bit and he was apparently thinking before he answered refusing playing such role at all and saying that the text characterizing the black people with a stereotypical brutal and bloody roles and that's why he is opposing playing this role basically which means in his opinion that the opera houses should stop showing such classic works to avoid promoting racism or they can modify the script and cleaning it from all suspected racism that included.

This friend was not the only one who adopt such position, but some Europeans i know do not care much about some brutal violations against human rights practiced in the middle east and Africa and have something to do with traditions or religion as they care about an opera show, movie or a piece of literature contained a suspected racism, and sometimes they blame their own people accusing them with that they helped on the occurrence of such violations because that the colonization prevented those who is committing such violations from getting rid of such traditions and thoughts that justify it.

I don’t underestimate here any racist or discriminatory attitude no matter how small, and i think that all racism suspicions should be addressed and opposed before it grows up and become an acceptable reality and prevalent habits as its in the middle east. and i also believe that we shouldn’t tolerate or underestimate any kind of violation against human rights no matter how small it is and wherever it happened and i think that all of those things should be confronted strongly and firmly to guarantee that it will not be repeated in the future. and i also urge everybody who have been through a situation where his rights were violated and/or he have been discriminated against to stand strongly against it and not keep silent, and also those who witness such situations to take a strong actions against it who knows they might became a victims of similar situations one day.
Here comes an Important question about whether those who practice racism, discrimination and violations against human rights without shaking an eyelid are also entitled to accuse others of what they do ?! and if those accusations was based on a real grounds should we take it in consideration and react toward it seriously ?! should we react or give attention toward an allegation made by a terrorist who is for example supporting IS or Al-Qaeda and/or fought under their flags, brutally tortured and beheaded people, that he has been subjected to a violation of his human rights in jail, like if he was not allowed to leave his cell or to meet with his family or talking to them in phone or if he claimed that the police practiced racism and discrimination against him?!

As a result of a long bloody colonial history, the term “white man” has been associated with racism and brutality, even after those practices turned into just a words in books and exhibits in museums, the great grandparent’s shame is still chasing their descendants who are mostly abandoned this colonial patriarchal racist legacy and distanced themselves from it.
Ironically, Those who are supposed to be a historical victims for the white man’s brutal activities and now they are accusing Europeans all the time with racism, discrimination and violating the basic human rights in every occasion are not hesitating at the mean time of practicing racism and discrimination without fearing of being accused of it. It seems like racism and discrimination became an exclusive accusations goes only for the white people, while any other people no matter how cruel and barbaric their crimes and atrocities is, they have an eternal impunity protecting them from such accusations just because they used to be a spoiled historical victim for the white man who hold the eternal shame which he inherited to his grandsons and their offspring !!

After i moved to Norway as a political refugee, I started attending some lessons at Nygård skole organized by the Introduction center for refugees in Bergen as part of The Introduction program for refugees. One of those lessons was called in Norwegian “Tema måte” where there was a Norwegian person from an Iraqi origins leading it, talking in Norwegian while several translators sitting in the room and telling us what he say in our languages. Different topics was opened for discussion in this meeting which was held every Tuesday, and in the first meeting he talked to us about racism saying its widely scattered in Norway and the right wing had stopped organizing demonstration against immigration policies but he believe that they work now underground aiming to expel all the immigrants who came originally from Africa and middle east outside Norway and that we should stick to being part of this society and that he personally does not talk about his ethnic origin as he insists on being just Norwegian to stop anyone who dare to question his belonging to Norway. Then he opened a discussion with us about the manifestations of racism which probably encountered the people who are attending this meeting. Those manifestations according to what the students who was attending this class said was ranged between an uncomfortable eye contact with a person passing by in the street and reach its maximum with a Yemeni guy he said that he felt uncomfortable because he believe that Norwegians avoid sitting next to him in the bus marking that as its a clear racism and discriminatory attitude. The teacher reacted to what students told agreeing on that its a clear signs of the presence of blatant racism and discrimination against immigrants in the Norwegian society!!!
But this teacher who was showing us his concern towards what he sees as growing phenomena of racism and discrimination as he felt it in the Norwegian society and his fear of the rise of the far right wing, did not hesitate during another lesson to warn us of thinking of marrying Norwegian women , why ?!! because they are in his own words “ Very expensive” and “ cost a lot of money” . In another occasion he used the term “ buy a woman” as euphemism of “Marrying a woman”. In another lesson he was telling us a story about a Pakistani man who couldn’t “buy a woman” to marry her as he have no enough money so he found its relevant to buy a goat instead since the goat is much cheaper than a woman !! all that happened inside a program supposedly it made for integrating immigrants in The Norwegian society and that the Norwegian government spend a lot of money on it !! What a great integration results are expected from such program !!!
What which many Europeans who pay yet the price of their ancestor’s follies may not know that if we compared the suspicious racism - if any- has currently practiced toward immigrants with the racist practices committed by those with wheat skin color toward who have darker skin in the middle eastern countries they might start rethinking of their perceptions about themselves and the others.
In Saudi Arabia and all Arab Persian gulf states for example, people still using the word “Slave” (a’bd) in their daily conversations to refer to every individual with darker skin, the word “slave” replace the word “ dark skinned” or “ black” , so they say for example : My “Slave” friend John did this and that ….. , Or: I bought this phone the shop where the “Slave” John works ….., without feeling that they utter a racist expressions. such expression you could found it used naturally even by many people there who claim that they support human rights values and and oppose racism, but they couldn’t get rid of the racism hidden inside daily normal talks.
In Saudi Arabia also, the authorities launched a campaign in the fourth of November 2013 targeting the Ethiopian workers, arresting them claiming that they are violating the immigration laws. This campaign have been accompanied with waves of attacks and assaults launched by normal Saudi citizens armed with swords and choppers. They attacked the places where Ethiopian workers living with their families, beating them up and torturing them severely, recording that with their mobile cameras. Some workers died under torture, other killed after the police shot them in the streets. Some of the Saudi citizens who took part in this assaults proudly documented what they did with video recordings uploaded later on YouTube !!



And in Egypt where i was born and lived until the age of 27, the racism against black-skinned people is really clear and unmistakable for anyone’s eye or ear. Mothers for example get so angry if their sons or daughters thought about marrying a dark skin person, and most people agree on a certain beauty standards which according to it people with darker skin are considered ugly. The movies and dramas put Nubians, who is originally from southern Egypt and characterized by brown skin and local language in a stereotyped roles as servants and doormen.
and yet those who have darker skin color are not allowed to work as news readers or as presenters in the Egyptian state television.
In 2005, the Egyptian police killed 23 Sudanese refugees (according to some Sudanese activists the real number is 56) in the last days of the year while they was clearing a peaceful sit-in organized in front of the UNHCR headquarters in Cairo as those refugees was demanding being sent to a third country. The police broke up this peaceful sit-in after they got complaints from the residents of the surrounding area who claimed that they have been affected by the presence of those Sudanese people in their high classy neighbourhood saying that they “smell bad” and “having sex in the streets as animals”. After the police got involved and the sit in had cleared the sit-in which was resulted in killing of children, youth and old people of both sexes, those high classy residents expressed their satisfaction for what has happened.

In September 2007, i was spending my four years prison sentence on charges connected to my writings at Borg El-Arab Prison near Alexandria, when the prison received a large number of prisoners who came from different African countries, mostly from Sudan and Eritrea, have been arrested and sentenced to one year imprisonment by a military court on a charges of entering the country illegally through the southern borders with Sudan intending to travel to Israel.
The prison administration was treating them in an inappropriate way for human beings, they were housed in large numbers inside a number of cells which can barely fit half of them, and they wasn’t allowed to go out in the sun, the thing which made them start a mass hunger strike demanding a better treatment.
The prison administration was looking always down at them and when they decided to start their hunger strike the officers couldn’t understand how they could think about that and they thought there is something else stand behind their hunger strike decision. The officers was creating an a collective image about them; within this image’s frame they was not much more than a poor people escaped from their countries because there is famines over there with lack of food and drinkable water and that they are supposed to feel grateful to the prison administration as they are throwing them food like animals. In the end they found a solution for this dilemma when they accused me of inciting them on hunger strike just because i was talking to them in English which was apparently enough evidence to prove such a charge! and as result of that i have been punished and subjected to physical torture and spent 10 days in a solitary confinement cell deprived from having enough food and water more than half a loaf of bread with a small piece of cheese on it and a bottle of water for each day.

I often hear some stories told by immigrants in Europe tell about racism and discriminatory situations they have been through, most of those people came from Arab and Muslim countries, and of course i can’t show uncertainty toward such stories as its part of those people’s experiences which differ from person to another. But if i talked about my experience here as an immigrant in Europe with a Middle eastern physical features i can say its totally different. I can’t deny for sure that i have been exposed to some situations where i get through a suspicious discrimination when i was in poland, but it was too rare to be kept in mind for long. and after i came here to Norway i have never been through a suspicious discriminatory situation except one time when I was travelling to Slovenia last year and the man who work on KLM counter in Bergen Airport stopped me for long time claiming that Slovenia situated outside Schengen area and European union and I need a visa to travel there, which totally untrue! I showed him the list of Schengen countries on Wikipedia and that it includes Slovenia, but he insisted that Its not schengen as he tried to stop me for a while to make some phone calls perhaps to make sure that my traveling on board on this flight does not constitute a danger to the international peace and security, and i finally traveled!
With only one exception which i mentioned earlier, i didn’t feel any time that i am treated as outsider from the moment when i arrived to Bergen Airport coming from Krakow until the Moment i close this sentence with this full stop.
Finally i have to say that the racist and discriminatory practices are widely spread among Mideastern people much more than anyone can imagine, those practices targeting anyone who shows difference whether it was genetic or optional. But apparently that many people from there are unable to face themselves with their faults and crimes so they started searching like the bankrupt trader in their old notebooks for a someone pays the costs of their foolishness on behalf of them! that's why i urge my European friends to stop giving the accusations which Arabs and Muslims throw on them from their glassy houses any sort of attention that might give them a value they don’t worth to get.






          My Speech in Gdansk Blog Forum      Cache   Translate Page      

Translated from Arabic by :

Sahar Maher 



I would like to start by extending my sincere gratitude and appreciation to the organizers of Gdansk Blog forum for inviting me to talk about my point of view regarding the ongoing political situation in Egypt after the massive demonstrations and protests back in January 2011 that some people tend to call it, “The Arab spring,” despite of its disastrous consequences and results that Egypt and the whole Middle Eastern region still suffer from up till this moment.
Unfortunately, I don’t have enough time that gives a space for the whole details and events that took place through all the last three years. But I hope that, with the favor of the internet and different international news services, most of you are familiar with or have a background about what is going on in Egypt.
I would like to emphasize that I am not here to get your ears raptured by reciting vibrant and made-up sentences praising the struggle of Egyptians, or attacking and criticizing the dictatorial governments. I am sorry if that would disappoint some of you, but I am not into this kind of superficial talks which might satisfy some people but pushes us far away from what I see and interpret as realism.
Governments are secretions of its people, no matter of the location. No authority in any country around the world, regardless the level of suppression and oppression practiced against its people, can remain in power for a long time if people have no desire to have it. People take part in forming their government, either by the clear approval through the fair elections, or even by sticking to silence and taking no reaction towards the human rights and freedom violations committed by their governments. People might be motivated to do so out of fear or interest. This equally applies to the governments and people of countries like Cuba, North
Korea, Iran, Saudi Arabia and definitely Egypt.
Fear is an action that has its own results and effects. It’s definitely a negative action that can be destructive. Those who fear should stand for their fear and take the full responsibility of its outcomes without blaming the reasons or causes of their fear and intimidation.
Surely, dictatorships use fear as a weapon to terrorize people, take full control over them, and guarantee their submission and surrender.
But falling under the control of fear and surrender, should not be considered a responsibility of governments, instead it’s mainly a responsibility of individuals who interact with and satisfy their governments’ unpleasant wills.
Those who get terrorized, panicked, and start spreading that among their countrymen stand behind magnifying the impact of such problems, because they fear facing it and inciting the others not to do so.
Since my early ages, I became familiar with recognizing the fear jumping out of people’s eyes. I could see them fearing everything that they even advise others to behave the same way, and if others didn’t, they turn their advice into an order and people become obligated by those who surrounds them to adjust themselves to this public hysterical mood which absolutely makes no sense.
There is a well-known Egyptian proverb says: “Who fears, guarantees safety.”
Safety that is mentioned here means the physical one; the safety of body from getting harmed or violated. On the other hand, the non-physical harm and violations do not concern people and obviously are considered to be kinds of reprehensible welfare that people can make fun of someone who have serious concern about it.
Many Egyptians Believe that fear protects them from being victims of physical violence committed by those who are more powerful, and that the mentioned proverb turned into a doctrine which draw the lifestyle of the majority.
But no one among those who widely use this proverb, believe in it, promote its meaning, and spread its content among people, thought about the major impact of this organized fear process which go viral to reach anything people can imagine.
The most dangerous outcome that is generated by fear is making people afraid of thinking about the reasons behind the major problems to avoid getting involved in what could be undesired consequences.
The fear wastes the energy of human beings and make them more likely to undergo for anything, physically and mentally. That’s why the authorities go for it, it’s a cost and effort saver.
Nothing is actually more easier than spreading a troublesome rumor or annoying story , the governments start that and then they leave the rest to be accomplished by the chronic fear patients who are doing it perfectly and voluntarily .
For example the Egyptian authority don’t fear spreading news or even rumors about the physical torture which committed by some of its security services and trading it among people, but of course they fear if that news get mentioned in media and became known outside its borders so as not exposed to a barrage of condemnations. Then, with good intentions people achieves the regime’s goal , spreading terror and panic by not only spreading the bad news or disturbance rumors but also by adding some details and creating other stories which make everything look very dramatic in the eyes and minds of people , and that the authoritarian regimes gain the benefits and manage to stay in power suppressing and terrorizing people for longer periods.
In the 2005 demonstrations against Mubarak and his plan to inherit the power to his
older son Gamal, we were few protesters, and that was strange for me and for others , there is no clear logic stands behind the reluctance of the majority of the Egyptian people who is oppressed by the regime from participating in the mobility against the repressive authority .
On the other hand, we used to get extreme criticism from those who choose avoiding participation in demonstrations.  
In the meantime, Some of them were expressing an indignation of the regime, but they thought that this dictatorial corrupted regime would be better than an unknown alternative that they believed might be more suppressive and corrupt.
Here I quote some of what they said: “Mubarak already stole enough and he don't need to steal more of the country’s wealth but his successor will start steal from the beginning, so we don't see any better alternative than the corrupt Mubarak!”
The mentality of the fearful paranoid citizen who accept just the crumbs leaded him to think that the power is not more than a gateway to corruption and looting, no more no less , The same citizen who goes to the governmental sectors and pays a lot of bribes willingly to finish necessary documents or get any other benefits , not conditionally the ones who are really worth to get , some pay a lot of money to get what they have no right to get , like those who pay to get a driving license without taking courses or passing driving exams .
So the corruption here is not attached only to those who are in power , but it’s extended to reach those who are supposed to be stolen and oppressed. It’s deeply rooted in the society ,
and the corrupt members of the governments do nothing much more than what the average citizen do.
since it does not come from another galaxy to rule them , it came from among those who have had many of them also justify the security repression, torture and even murder committed by the police or military forces, and they themselves do not hesitate to practice
similar things with those who show some differences from the majority or those who thought to be weak helpless. Just take a quick look on the Egyptian reality and you will easily see the incidents of harassment and rape which are scattered in the Egyptian streets and many Justify it, and do not ignore the abuse committed against children at homes,
schools, orphanages and reformatories with no guaranteed protection despite of the existence of law criminalizing such behaviors.
Also try to refresh your memory and recall the incidents of attacking and killing religious minorities by the vast Muslim majority, and destruction and burning of churches which are widely spread and repeated incidents happen all the time without interruption.
I won’t go further speaking about what some people may consider as changes in the political map in Egypt, because I cannot see any real or core change. What really happened is that some people uncovered a cesspool to let its sop smell block our noses and to allow insects and mice, that people never expected they exist and they are that dangerous, come out and attack us.
Some of those insects and mice used to be intentionally released every back and then as a strategy of terrorizing people. Despite their ability to destroy those cesspools, the old regime intentionally allowed them to exist in order to use them as weapons whenever the regime starts to fall down, and that is exactly what happened.
The problem lies behind the Egyptian society’s predominant culture and its sources. That culture that is supported by people’s religion, heritage, and folklore, which freeze time and disable minds. That culture that criminalize critical thinking, to convert ingenuity into undesired action and discard and threaten creative people not only by the government but also by people. The authority does this actually to let people praise it, and that is the same reason why the Egyptian government imprisoned me for my writings. Actually without the will of the religious institute, El-Azhar, that is supported by people, the government wouldn’t have taken any steps against me and arrested me.
From my point of view, the only solution is uprooting the problem. I do not believe in political compromises, social maneuvers, and semi-solutions. That’s why I do not care about what politics’ polls in Egypt say, because they are fundamentally far away of the problem’s root and they keep deceiving their unaware people. Uprooting the problem means marginalization the religion, old traditions, and everything that can take us many years backward or freeze us in our places without any hope in moving forward.
In conclusion , changing governments and rulers is a useless shallow action. What really needs to be done is changing people’s mentality and the way they think, and what is even more important is recognizing how big the issue is and how to deal with it as an obvious fact.
I cannot see any hope in the near future through those suppressed and threatened generations that have accepted and got adapted to their situation. Those generations that got used to be pets and decided to go on with their lives the way it is. Human’s personality gets formed in his or her early ages, and after specific amount of years you can actually expect his or her attitudes, ethics, and reactions that are actually harmonic with the way he or she was raised in suppression, and unawareness.
The true hope that I can see is in the children that have not been tamed or subjected yet. We need to invest in educating those children as much as we invest in weapons and killing. They need to be separated from everything that can prevent them from being an open-minded, aware, and mentally-independent generation, to convert them into identical templates of their ancestors. And only later on when those children grow up and take the responsibility of the country, there would be a great hope of a real change to occur.
I’ve tried to stick to the topic and title of my speech but I found out that it’s more important to state the real causes of opposition’s failure in Egypt instead of just restating the repeated and identical non-stopping political events that all of you can follow through any form of multimedia, and it’s more important also than adopting unrealistic optimistic vision of the future that is unfortunately not related anyhow to our reality.
Finally, I would like to thank you all for listening and for your attention, and I apologize if  I took too much of your time.


I admit I watch a lot of Maddow and pretty much embrace all the Russian conspiracy stuff she's constantly peddling. But I never needed her to tell me that Trump's is the swampiest presidency since Warren G. Harding's. Maybe Ulysses S. Grant's? Except in Trump's case, it's clearly the man at the top who's the most corrupt of all. And one thing that I never doubted for a second is that Trump takes bribes-- from any and all sources... including from abroad, a major no-no. He's been taking money from Russia, Ukraine, various pieces of the former Soviet Union, Saudi Arabia, Israel, the United Arab Emirates, China... anywhere he could get them from. Friday, The Guardian published a piece by Jon Swaine, Trump inauguration took money from shell companies tied to foreigners, that lays out some of the evidence regarding just the Inauguration aspect.



Short version of Swaine's exhaustive report: Shell companies were created to mask foreign bribes that poured into the pockets of Trump and his corrupt family. "The Guardian," he wrote, "has identified the creators of three obscure firms that contributed money to Trump’s inaugural committee, which collected a record $107 million as he entered the White House in 2017. There was a lot more foreign money than the 3 instances Swaine dug into.
The three companies each gave $25,000 to Trump’s inaugural fund. At least one of the contributions was made for a foreign national who appears ineligible to make political donations in the U.S.

A spokesman for Thomas Barrack, the chairman of Trump’s inauguration committee, declined to comment. The contributors denied wrongdoing.

Federal prosecutors in New York and the attorney generals of New Jersey and Washington DC have in recent weeks issued subpoenas to the committee, demanding records and information on its contributors and spending.

U.S. election law prohibits non-resident foreigners from contributing to political campaigns, including inaugurations. Donors or campaigns who “knowingly and willfully” breach this rule may be fined or prosecuted.

One of the $25,000 donations to Trump’s inauguration was made through a Delaware shell company for a wealthy Indian financier based in London, who appears to not hold US citizenship or residency.

Another was made by a company formed in Georgia by a lobbyist with connections to the Taiwanese government. His wife said the firm was funded by Chinese investors. One of their daughters was later given an internship in Trump’s White House, which they said was unrelated to the donation.

A third $25,000 contribution was made through a company formed anonymously in New York by an Israeli real estate developer who has helped other foreign developers with legal issues in the U.S. The Israeli developer said he held U.S. residency, commonly known as a “green card,” which permitted him to contribute legally.

Ann Ravel, a former commissioner at the federal election commission (FEC), said the use of anonymous companies was the biggest problem for authorities trying to ensure transparency and legality in political donations.

“We need stronger regulation,” said Ravel. “But our campaign finance system is structured to not let us find out who is behind these contributions.”

Authorities including Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 US election, are looking into issues around foreign money in American politics and possible attempts to buy influence with Trump’s administration.


A Washington-based lobbyist, Sam Patten, admitted last year that he illegally funnelled $50,000 to Trump’s inauguration from a Ukrainian oligarch. Patten, a former colleague of the convicted ex-Trump aide Paul Manafort, pleaded guilty to lying to Congress and failing to register as a foreign agent.

One $25,000 contribution to Trump’s inaugural fund came from a shell company tied to Cyrus Vandrevala, a Mumbai-born financier based in London. Vandrevala has said he funds property developments in India, where Trump owns luxury towers.

Vandrevala’s father-in-law, Niranjan Hiranandani, is one of the wealthiest figures in Indian real estate. He currently serves as president of an influential real estate industry lobby group in the country.

In an interview published days after Trump’s inauguration, Hiranandani said he hoped the new president would not hinder India’s real estate industry by restricting US visas. He suggested it was unlikely Trump would “want to do something that can have a negative impact on his ongoing projects in India.”

Vandrevala, 46, has an Indian passport and declares his nationality as Indian, according to business records obtained from authorities in Delhi. A source familiar with his arrangements said he did not hold U.S. citizenship or a “green card.”

The contribution appears to have paid for two VIP tickets to Trump’s inauguration. He and his wife, Priya, attended the event in Washington and also enjoyed a “private breakfast” with Trump, according to an article in the UK’s Asian Lite newspaper, which was written by a veteran Indian reporter who knows the Vandrevalas.

Another British-Asian newspaper, Eastern Eye, reported Vandrevala was “friendly with Trump’s daughter Ivanka.” Editors did not respond to questions about the source of that information. The White House did not respond to an inquiry.

The link between the contribution and Vandrevala is hidden in the public record. FEC filings list a $25,000 donation from a limited liability company (LLC) calling itself Sierra Vista. Its stated address is a suburban office park in Wayne, Pennsylvania.



Vandrevala’s U.S. investment company, Intrepid Capital Partners, has an office at the same complex in Wayne. Separately, an LLC named Sierra Vista 1 has also cited the office park as its address in business records.

Sierra Vista 1 was formed in Delaware, a state renowned for its low-tax and high-secrecy regime, in which companies are not required to disclose the names of officers, directors or owners.

The only person named in paperwork filed to Delaware when Sierra Vista 1 was set up in 2014 was John Teaford, a businessman who has worked on several Vandrevala ventures since the 1990s.

An executive at Intrepid Capital Partners, who requested anonymity because he was not authorised to speak to the media, said Sierra Vista 1 was an investment vehicle funded with Vandrevala’s money.

Vandrevala did not respond to emails and messages left at his office in London. Reached by telephone and asked whether he handled Sierra Vista’s payment to the inauguration for Vandrevala, Teaford said: “I probably did.”

Intrepid Capital Partners has a property arm, ICP Real Estate, which was created to finance developments in India. It claimed to be amassing a $7bn investment fund for building homes and has targeted the cities of Mumbai and Pune, both of which are home to Trump-branded towers.

Donald Trump Jr, the president’s eldest son, has described India as “the biggest push for our organisation.” The Trump company lists four Indian developments in its portfolio. A visit to the country last year by Trump Jr incurred almost $98,000 in publicly funded security costs.

Two months before election day in 2016, a new shell company was registered in Georgia. The company, Jan Castle LLC, was formed by a man named David Sean, who paid the $100 fee and signed the simple one-page form required by the state.

Sean listed his office address as a numbered “suite” on a street that runs past a country club in Sandy Springs, one of the country’s wealthiest suburbs.

The state’s paperwork said explicitly that a physical address was required-- a mailbox was not acceptable. But Sean’s address was, in fact, a mailbox inside a shipping store on a strip mall. Sean, a Taiwanese-American businessman, is based more than 2,000 miles away in southern California and is also known as Pong Hsiang.

Shortly before Christmas in 2016, Jan Castle LLC contributed $25,000 to Trump’s inauguration fund.

Sean, 59, said he was a US citizen. He declined to discuss the activity of Jan Castle or the status of any other people involved in the company, and the Guardian was unable to locate records on either.

But Sean’s wife, Joann, said in a brief telephone interview in late January that Sean created Jan Castle for three Chinese investors. Sean later denied his wife had said this. The company’s original filing to Georgia identified someone named Jianning He as its “organizer,” but gave only the same mailbox address as contact information.

Sean rejected requests over several weeks to discuss the contribution to Trump’s inauguration. Eventually he agreed to a meeting in person, but then changed his mind. Finally, in a series of text messages, Sean said: “I refuse to collude with Chinese communists and insist [on] investment with no condition attached.”

He went on to say: “My company objective is to take back stolen trillion dollar from communist China and put into manufacturing sector in United States. And I will work hard to achieve this mission objective til the day I am perished from the earth.”

Sean, who describes himself as an enthusiastic Trump supporter, also provided copies of complaint letters he said he had sent to the FBI, the CIA, the FEC and the IRS, requesting that each agency investigate the author of this article.

One of Sean’s daughters carried out a White House internship last year. She posted photographs to social media, including one of her class of interns posing with Trump. Sean said the internship had no link to the contribution.

During the 1990s, Sean worked in Taiwan as a consultant for the Hsinchu Science Park, according to his résumé. The park was developed by the Taiwanese ministry of science and technology from the 1980s as its answer to Silicon Valley.

Later, according to the résumé, Sean became a “US federal government relations consultant.” Records filed to Congress say that from 2012-14, he registered as a lobbyist in Washington, representing his own financial advisory firm.

In some lobbying filings, Sean registered jointly with an associate named Johnny Lu, who was said to be an “international trade consultant.”

Lu, who is also known as Lu Zhongying, is an adviser to Taiwan’s overseas community affairs council, according to a Taiwanese government spokeswoman in California. Lu did not respond to messages left with his family. A cellphone registered in his name did not accept incoming calls.


The Swamp Revisited by Nancy Ohanian

The pair told an ethics watchdog they were lobbying on issues such as international trade and foreign investment in the US. They reported lobbying the White House, Congress, and government agencies including the bureau of export administration and the federal trade commission. They did not list any foreign clients.

Records obtained from state authorities across the US show Sean has used at least 10 mailboxes around California, Florida, Georgia, Nevada and Wyoming to open many other companies over the past two decades. The purpose of some of the companies was unclear. One named Johnny Lu as president.

In 2015, Sean created a company named Global Prosperity Foundation Corp from the mailbox near Atlanta. He told regulators it would “facilitate communication with US major trading partner’s trading organizations and promote the investment advantages of United States” [sic]. It was closed shortly before the donation to Trump’s inaugural fund was made.

Another $25,000 came into Trump’s inaugural fund three days before the president’s swearing-in from a company named New York State Property Management Corporation. The company gave as its address a house in the Long Island town of Hewlett, close to John F Kennedy airport.

A company with that name is registered with New York authorities at a small office building elsewhere in the region. The Guardian traced the firm back to Elon Lebouvich, an Israeli businessman in his mid-40s, who is involved in New York real estate.

According to court records, Lebouvich has also gone by other names, including “Allen Lebo”, and has served as a representative for a family of wealthy Moroccan investors in US legal disputes. A member of the family declined to discuss their relationship.

Lebouvich is currently developing a $5m retail property in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, according to sources familiar with his work. According to city records, the building is owned by an LLC controlled by the 74-year-old mother of Lebouvich’s attorney. The attorney and his mother declined to comment.

In a brief telephone interview, Lebouvich said his $25,000 contribution paid for two tickets to the inauguration for “me and somebody else.” He would not say who used the second ticket. When asked if he was entitled to contribute, he said: “I don’t have the time to talk about it” and ended the call.

In a subsequent email, Lebouvich said he had held permanent US residency for about five years, which would mean he was entitled to contribute. He declined to discuss the contribution and threatened legal action.

The FEC has seemed unwilling to actively guard against foreign contributions in US politics. In 2017, two dissenting commissioners said the FEC had failed to properly investigate a complaint alleging foreigners donated $55,000 through LLCs to a campaign group supporting a congressman.

The commission is understaffed. All four current commissioners have served well beyond their six-year term limits. For the past year, the FEC has operated with four commissioners instead of six because Trump has not filled two vacant seats.

Ellen Weintraub, the FEC chairwoman and the only sitting Democratic commissioner, has frequently criticised her colleagues for what she views as an unwillingness to adequately regulate campaign finance, including the threat of foreign money.

In a letter to Congress sent last September, Weintraub said the FEC was “naively and dangerously” ignoring the reality of foreign interference and had no plan to counter it.

“This situation will not improve until this commission has at least four members who are willing to enforce existing law barring foreign-national political involvement and address dark money,” Weintraub wrote.


          Cycling the Mereenie Loop      Cache   Translate Page      

Alice Springs – Kings Canyon

There are two options to travel from Alice Springs to Uluru, or “The Rock”: the most popular option is to stay on a tarmac road, then backtrack to the highway with an optional detour to Kings Canyon. The other option is to take the Mereenie Loop road. This is a more scenic 700km route to Uluru taking in Kings Canyon and minimising the amount of backtracking.

The catch is that the Mereenie Loop encompasses a 140km unsealed section known for its rough corrugations and sandy creek crossings, really just suitable for 4WD vehicles. This section lies in the midst of a 230km gap between water points, which would take us about 3 days of cycling to cover. As the Mereenie Loop is located on Aboriginal land, a permit is required to travel on the road, and camping is not allowed. 

“The dirt road is often soft and slow with the occasional 200m stretch of sand and […] kilometres of bone jolting, filling loosening, cobblestones. Ugg.”  - Cycle Trails Australia

“You’ll need tyres ten times as thick as that. It’s sandy and you’ll probably have to walk a lot of it. You’d be lucky to do 20km per day.” - Grey Nomad, having just completed the Mereenie Loop in his 4WD

Taking into consideration all the pros and cons of the two roads, we made the sensible decision to stick to the tarmac. So we stocked up on food for the 5 days cycling we thought it might take us to get to Uluru, swapped our worn rear tires for new, slicker and thinner tyres suitable for the tarmac roads, and packed our bags. We were perfectly happy until we started chatting to a young German traveller who told us he had just driven the Mereenie Loop in a borrowed 2WD car and thought it would be doable by bicycle.

With the full intention of staying on the tarmac, we went to sleep.

8 hours later, Guy was woken up by Freddie whispering: “Guy, are you awake? I think we’re making a terrible mistake. What will we think later, say next year, when we look back and realise we took the easier option and missed out on Kings Canyon? Sure, the Mereenie Loop will be much harder, and maybe we won’t make it, but it’s so much more interesting. Shouldn’t we at least try?”

“Ok”, Guy mumbled and went back to sleep. With that, the decision was sealed. We were doing the Mereenie Loop.

We calculated that it would take us about 5 days to get to Kings Canyon via the Mereenie Loop, so we had enough food and set off from Alice Springs a few hours later to explore the West MacDonnell Ranges on our way. The terrain was quite hilly but very scenic, and we found a lovely camp spot in a dried out creek bed.

Camp in creek bed   Ormiston Gorge

We hadn’t allowed time for many detours, but the one gorge in the West MacDonnells we really wanted to visit was Ormiston Gorge, which everybody we spoke to had recommended to us. It was indeed very pretty, though the campground wasn’t very exciting.

As Andrew and Therese had left on the same day as us and were taking the same route, we had seen them a couple of times on the way and met again at Ormiston Gorge. To give ourselves a better chance of completing the Mereenie Loop, we had asked them to do a water drop for us along the way. The only landmark on the whole 230km stretch without facilities was a turnoff to an Aboriginal village after 90km, so we agreed that they would drop the water off there for us, marking the spot by tying bits of toilet paper to a bush.

Bird in Ormiston Gorge

Our permits were easily obtained at Glen Helen for the princely sum of $3, although it would have been quite obvious to everyone that we were planning to break the “no camping” rules as there was no way we could cycle the whole Mereenie Loop in one day. This was the last water point where we filled up our bladders, though we would be able to top up our supplies from Andrew and Therese who were already setting up camp 20km on in Redbank Gorge.

Ormiston Gorge water hole   Glen Helen Gorge

When we arrived at Redbank Gorge, Andrew and Therese had already lit a warming fire and were preparing a bucket shower with water heated by their car engine. To our delight, Therese even cooked us dinner (seafood pasta!) and made one last chocolate pudding. It was great to spend another night with our Kiwi friends.

In the morning, our tents were frozen. As we washed our dishes, the water on our cups and plates froze instantly, before we even had a chance to dry them. The Mereenie Loop road is located at over 800m altitude, making for warm days and freezing nights.

Knowing that we would hit the dirt road soon, Guy had swapped our rear tyres back over to our old tyres which were more worn but had much more grip than the new slick tyres. However, after barely an hour of cycling, Freddie’s rear tyre developed a large bulge. A while ago we had camped on recently burned ground and must have left the tyre on a hot patch so that it had developed a small but hardly noticeable bulge. Luckily we had reinforced it with duct tape as otherwise the tube would have blown right out of the tyre. As a result we had to change back a slick tyre, not ideal for the sandy dirt roads ahead of us.

Cycling the West MacDonnells   Split tyre

We were carrying 12l of water each, adding significantly to the load of our bikes. When the tarmac road ended, we deflated our tyres to 40PSI (we normally run them on 70PSI). Cycling on the dirt road was a shock to the system as handling the heavy bikes on corrugations, sand and rocks proved to be tricky at times. Most of the time we could find somewhere on the road to cycle, even if it meant cycling on the opposite lane, but it was slow going and we were glad when we reached our water drop as the daylight faded.

End of the tarmac   Guy cycling the Mereenie Loop

We saw the telltale strips of toilet paper fluttering on a bush and were quietly relieved when we found the 10l water box. It even contained two complimentary chocolate bars – thanks Andrew and Therese! A few hundred metres on we found a quiet place to set up camp. Unfortunately it turned out that we had taken over the resting place of a bull who was not impressed but we were too tired to move on so stood our ground and soon he left after some stomping and snorting.

Thanks to our water drop, we now had plenty of water for the remaining two days of cycling. We were using about 6l of drinking water per day (combined), plus 4l for each night of camping. Negotiating the sandy, rocky and corrugated road surface required a lot of concentration, and we became tired of staring intently at the road all day instead of enjoying the scenery. Our shoulders and knees were hurting from the weight of the bikes, and the rough road sometimes made us feel as if we were in a washing machine.  

Although we were in a remote area now, we still saw about 20 cars per day. Most of the time the cars were announced by large dust clouds so that we could spot them from far away. Not all cars had dust clouds, this one wasn’t going anywhere fast and with the cost of car recovery so high, sometimes abandonment is the only option.

Abandoned car on Mereenie Loop

Trudging along over a crescent in the road a 4WD slowed down and the driver yelled:

“I don’t suppose you guys would like some Swiss chocolate.”

The driver turned out to be Patrick, a friend of Andrew and Therese who had been instructed by them to look after us when he saw us en route!

A little further on we came across another example of why we have really loved cycling in the Territory, things are a little different out there. An example of how they signal to motorists to slow down for the sharp corner ahead:

Lift um foot   Puttum back down

Due to the recent rains, the road had been damaged and roadworks were taking place. We were very lucky that a 40km section of the road had just been graded, making the surface much smoother to ride on. Without these “bonus kilometres” we would have struggled to make it through the whole Mereenie Loop in our scheduled 3 days.

All along the road we had been spotting camel foot prints on the sandy edges. Some were huge, almost the size of a dinner plate, while others alongside were much smaller. Finally we spotted a family of three camels walking on a ridge parallel to the road – a huge male camel followed by a female and a smaller young one. We managed to take a few pictures before they fled down the hill and out of view.

Camels

Camels had originally come to Australia with the Afghan workers building the Ghan railway through the desert. They had been used by many expeditions to transport supplies to remote communities. Being suited to the arid conditions, there are many wild camels in Australia now and we recently heard that Australia even exports camels to Saudi Arabia!

Just as it was time to camp, Freddie’s bike started making worrying noises. A quick examination showed that one of the screws that attached the rear rack to the bike had been sheared off. The rough road and heavy load on the rack had taken its toll. Luckily the bike engineers had pre-empted this situation and allowed for a secondary screw thread so all we had to do was readjust the rack to fit in the new position, hats off to you SJS Cycles!

Freddie on Mereenie Loop

At night, there was total isolation. From the moment it got dark at 6pm until about 8am, no vehicles, no people, absolutely no one passed us at all. There were no settlements nearby, no phone reception, we were totally alone. We relished this rare chance to experience perfect isolation and really enjoyed sitting around our little camp fire under the stars in this huge expanse of emptiness.

The road went from rough to diabolical for the last 30km or so, and there was nowhere to escape the rough surface. The choice was mostly between rattling along on the deep corrugations that covered the whole width of the road at 3km/hr, or risking the sandy edges with over an inch of soft sand.

Suddenly we hit the tarmac, a real surprise as we had calculated it to come a little later. We were feeling pretty smug that we had made it, pumped up the tyres again and screamed down a hill, enjoying the fast ride on the beautiful tarmac road.

We couldn’t believe our eyes when 1km later, the tarmac ended and we were back on the dirt for another 15km of corrugations, so we deflated the tyres again and grimly pushed on not feeling so smug!

Wild melons   The Green Centre

This part of Australia is usually known as the “Red Centre”, but due to the strong rains this year it looks more like the “Green Centre”. All along the road are juicy wild melons. We weren’t sure if they were edible, but the area was just littered with them, very tempting.

Soon after we hit the tarmac for real and blazed along for the last 10km towards Kings Canyon.

George Gill Range

As we rolled into Kings Canyon Resort, we were happy and proud that we had conquered the Mereenie Loop with minimal damage to the bikes and ourselves. We also accepted the realisation that corrugated dirt roads on a fully loaded touring bike is not our idea of fun. It’s ok to get to somewhere special, but we love the sensation of cycling and taking in the scenery, something that is very difficult to do when you are so focussed on keeping your balance from one corrugation to the next.||

          Oil exceeds the plan      Cache   Translate Page      

Brent futures quotes wandered near four-month highs and there are more and more conversations in the market that black gold is returning to the tug-of-war between OPEC and American manufacturers. While the cartel and other countries, including Russia, are working to stabilize the situation by reducing production, companies from the United States, on the contrary, are increasing it. As a result, the importance of global demand for pricing increases significantly.

According to the International Energy Agency, the United States will double its gross crude oil exports to 4.2 million b/d by 2024. The total supply of oil and oil products abroad will reach 9 million b/d. over the next five years, the share of U.S. production of oil will account for 70% of the growth of the global figure. We are talking about increasing production from 11 million b/d in 2018 to 13.7 million b/d in 2024. All this allows the IEA to talk about the second wave of shale mining. I doubt that such a rapid growth would have been possible if the prices for the North Sea variety were $40-50 per barrel. BofA Merrill Lynch expects to see the average cost of Brent in 2019 at $70, WTI - at $59 per barrel.

According to OPEC Secretary General Mohammed Barkindo, the cartel untied the hands of American manufacturers. Judging by the statements of Riyadh - it continues to do so. Saudi Arabia intends to reduce exports to 7 million b/d and production below the psychologically important mark of 10 million b/d. In February, the last figure was 10.11 million b/d. External demand for oil supplies from the Saudis is estimated at 7.6 million b/d. The intention of the largest member of OPEC to over-fulfill its obligations under the contract to reduce production by 1.2 million b/d in order to stabilize the market situation is a bullish factor for Brent and WTI.

Saudi Arabia oil production dynamics

i93H8nH90Uv5U_bo5IrhFz2gUrzUFu11tXR6jy0N

Support for "bulls" of oil is provided by power outages in Venezuela, which aggravates the situation with the fall in oil production, as well as progress in relations between the US and China, as well as Britain and the EU. According to the International Energy Agency, the erratic Brexit and the associated recession of the UK economy will increase uncertainty and slow global demand. The IEA believes that it will increase by about 1.2 million b/d per year until 2024, which is equivalent to +1.2%. The news that Brussels is ready to accept changes and additions to the draft treaty with London reduced the risk of chaos and allowed Brent to return to the area of high marks from mid-November.

A serious obstacle to bulls on the North Sea variety could be the correction of US stock indices, which will indicate a deterioration in global demand for risk and a potential drop in demand for black gold. The probability of a pullback of the S&P 500 is increasing, which limits the potential of the Brent rally. Technically, after reaching the level of $68.4 per barrel (50% of the CD wave of the Shark pattern), against the background of the inability of buyers to push quotes higher, the risks of falling prices will increase.

          Who's a Jew vis-a-vis Zionist claims? History, culture-ethnos vs religion definitions, more      Cache   Translate Page      
This is a sticky wicket, but I like sticky wickets, and decided to pull out some information from my Ilhan vs AOC, Pelosi and wingnuts to boot piece.

First, what do you mean by "Jew"?

Whoopi Goldberg:
Jew or not a Jew?
Do you mean a practitioner of the religion of Judaism? Then Whoopi Goldberg is one.

Do you mean an ethnic descendant from the one-time majority Semitic population of a small Eastern Mediterranean nation-state of antiquity?

Then Whoopi Goldberg is not. Not unless we start hauling out Mel Brooks' "schwartzes" from Blazing Saddles.

This all may seem separate from the issue of anti-Zionism not being anti-Semitism. But it's really semi-separate and no more than that, and I'll hit on that at the bottom.

That said, how Jewish are Jews? And, I'm going back far further than the Khazar hypothesis most notably promoted by Arthur Koestler and Raphael Patai, among others, which in any case only covered Ashkenazis.

I'm going back into the Torah to start. Even if half the nations listed in the Torah as living in Palestine promised to Abraham and Moses are fictitious, the other half aren't. Given the actualities of how Israel arose vs myth of the Torah and the Former Prophets in the Nivi'im, there is no pure Jewish bloodline. Because, of course, there was no "invasion" of some Semitic people who had been slaves in Egypt. Rather, Israel arose as an indigenous social-cultural development within Canaanite peoples. Probably a century or so after that, maybe two centuries, reading between the lines, there was an incursion of people from the land of Midian bringing the worship of their tribal god, Yahweh, with them.

Based on the trilateral consonantal root system of most Semitic languages, the name "Yahweh" derives MUCH more likely from the Old Midianite verb "to storm, blow or thunder," rather than the Hebrew verb "to be." In other words, Yahweh was an Old Midianite Zeus, ruling from a dormant but not dead volcano, Sinai; the Numbers version of the Exodus route puts Sinai in Midian (today's northwest Saudi Arabia) and NOT the Sinai Peninsula.

So, Israelites by alleged ethnicity or Israelites or Judahites by religion (religious scholarship doesn't use the word "Judaism" until the return from the Babylonian Exile and even then, many may speak of "proto-Judaism") weren't all "Israelite," in all likelihood. They intermarried with the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites and others that Yahweh allegedly told them to drive out of the country, more clearly explicated as "wipe out" later, in Joshua 9. (And, yes, that would be another call for a holocaust, just like the one against the Amalekites, though that one was more explicit, in 1 Samuel 15. (Zionists claiming both an ethical high ground and a need to have a Zionist-based nation of Israel after the Holocaust thus — if they are religious Jews — are undercut by their own history. If they're non-religious, whether Israeli citizens or not, the idea that is is driven by the Holocaust is undercut by Chaim Weizmann talking about expropriating Palestinian land and more already in 1919. More here. The key quote: "Palestine is to become as Jewish as England is English." And, per the map at this Wiki page, Weizmann and fellow travelers wanted the alleged full promise of Biblical land by Yahweh. In other words, they wanted the arable portions of today's Jordan, too.)

I add in the number of post-Return Judahite males Ezra told to divorce. I presume that not all did and that many had kids.

Add in the Idumeans converted at Maccabean swordpoint. The house of Antipater and Herod weren't the only ethnic Idumeans intermarrying with ethnic Judahites. (Beyond that, the Maccabean wars were as much a civil war as a revolt against the Seleucids.)

None of this is to say that ancient Israel as a socio-cultural / "ethnic" group is any worse than any other group in history, on average. Nor was every portion of Israelite history unenlightened by standards of either then or today. It is to suggest that, on average, it's not necessarily better, though.

That said, we're now at about Khazar times. We know the Khazar Khan converted, and presumably along with his leading nobles, for political reasons, to balance between the Christians of the Byzantine Empire and the Muslims of the Abbasid Caliphate. That said, the khanate lasted long enough that surely a fair number of the Turkic Khazars also converted. There surely were other religious Jews of ethnically "Jewish" (per above) background in that area, too. We know the Crimea, which eventually became part of the khanate, had a large Jewish population. After all, the Crimean Karaites still exist. The genetics, per this note from Wiki, seem to rule out that Ashkenazi Jews are all Turkic, but allow for many of them being partly Turkic.

That said, the issue here is "who's an Ashkenazi"? A Rhinelander German and a Ukrainian in Odessa? A century ago, at least, both may have spoken Yiddish as their first language (well, maybe 200 years ago for unemancipated Rhinelanders) but that's about all they had in common. So, Jews from Odessa, Minsk or Vilnius may have a fair amount of Khazar background, and those from Baden or Köln not so much!

As I noted above, the hypothesis applies only the Ashkenazis anyway. Time to move further west within Europe.

Besides the known-by-group-name Marranos of Spanish history, many a goy may not know their whole family history. Some goys (ahem) have at least guesses in that area. Also, especially from medieval Spain and conversions, that "sangre azul" cuts both ways. It does among Rhineland German Jews too. (If you're wondering, especially per the claim that Judaism is not an "evangelizing religion" [which also ignores the examples above]), in Spain, such conversions to Judaism from both Muslims and Christians are documented. They likely happened in the Rhineland. And in the Polish-Baltic pale of Askhenazim.

Time to move next to Ethiopia and Beta Israel. Many of these Ethiopian Jews faced skepticism, even cynicism, about whether they were religiously Jewish or not. They also clearly raised the issue about the difference between religiously Jewish and ethnically Israelite/Judahite.

What this really shows — especially the emergence of Israel in Canaan — just as much as does the "one drop of blood" nonsense about blacks in America, is that "races" don't exist. Certainly, in that sense, "ethnicities" as pure blood don't exist either.

Besides, from the Mishnah on, Rabbinic Judaism has changed its definition of Jewish heritage. In the Tanakh, it was patrilineal, not matrilineal. And some Jews are still open to that today. Read more about the issue here.

In other words, Israelis claiming an ethnic right to ancient Canaan have no biological or socio-cultural leg to stand on. Jews of Israeli sympathy making similar claims to that land have no religious standing other than the law of the sword. It's no different from Crusades Christianity or Hindutva.

Likewise, the concept of a "Chosen People," the pernicious background of all of this, is not unique to Judaism. It's behind American exceptionalism (Reagan's "city on a hill" from John Winthrop), the Anglo-Israelite movement, to tie threads together, and even in the mind of many members of Alcoholics Anonymous. Especially in that last outlet — and likely as well as among some Zionists — it tends to promote a sense of psychological martyrdom. Like in Jehovah's Witnesses.

And, of course, many non-Orthodox Jews accept a religious state that's not (totally) wedded to discriminating against other religions. Most of them still haven't wrestled with the issue of expropriation, though.

          Sodomy Laws in the US and around the World      Cache   Translate Page      
A sodomy law is a law that defines certain sexual acts as crimes. The precise sexual acts meant by the term sodomy are rarely spelled out in the law, but are typically understood by courts to include any sexual act deemed to be "unnatural" or immoral. Sodomy typically includes anal sex, oral sex and bestiality. In practice, sodomy laws have rarely been enforced against heterosexual couples (Wikipedia)


Sodomy arrest sparks controversy… 34 years ago

Michael Hardwick is arrested for sodomy after a police officer observes him having sex with another man in his own bedroom in Georgia. Although the district attorney eventually dropped the charges, Hardwick decided to challenge the constitutionality of Georgia’s law.

“John and Mary Doe,” who joined in Hardwick’s suit against Michael Bowers, the attorney general of Georgia, maintained that the Georgia law “chilled and deterred” them from engaging in certain types of sex in their home. But in 1986, the Supreme Court handed down its decision in Bowers v. Hardwick, ruling by a 5-4 vote that states could continue to treat certain types of consensual sex as criminal acts.

Apparently, Justice Byron White had characterized the issue not as the right to privacy in one’s own bedroom, but rather as the right to commit sodomy. Viewed in this narrow manner, it was no surprise that he was unable to find such a clause in the Constitution. Justice Lewis Powell, who also voted to uphold the law, later called his vote a mistake.

In June 2003, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a Texas law under which two men had been arrested for having consensual sex at home. The 6-3 Lawrence v. Texas decision reversed the infamous 1986 Bowers decision and finally dealt a death blow to sodomy laws throughout the country.

In its landmark ruling Lawrence v. Texas, the Supreme Court ruled that anti-sodomy laws —sometimes referred to as “crimes against nature” laws — are unconstitutional. But 12 states continue to keep such laws on their books. Of 14 states that had anti-sodomy laws, only Montana and Virginia have repealed theirs since the Supreme Court ruling, while anti-sodomy laws remain on the books in Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas and Utah.



You may believe anti-sodomy laws are not harmful because they can’t be enforced. But they are an important symbol of homophobia for those who oppose LGBT rights. What’s more, the laws create ambiguity for police officers, who may not be aware they are unconstitutional.

If a policeman looks it up, he will see that sodomy is a violation of Louisiana state law, for example, according to Marjorie Esman, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana.

Sodomy Laws around the World

In the recent years, sodomy related laws have been repealed or judicially struck down in all of Europe, North America, and South America, except for Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago.

There have never been Western-style sodomy related laws in the People's Republic of China, Taiwan, North Korea, South Korea, or Vietnam. Additionally, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia were part of the French colony of 'Indochine'; so if there had been any laws against male homosexual acts in those countries, they would have been dismantled by French colonial authorities, since male homosexual acts have been legal in France and throughout the French Empire since the issuing of the aforementioned French Revolutionary penal code in 1791.

This trend among Western nations has not been followed in all other regions of the world (Africa, some parts of Asia, Oceania and even western countries in the Caribbean Islands), where sodomy often remains a serious crime. For example, male homosexual acts, at least in theory, can result in life imprisonment in Barbados and Guyana.

In Africa, male homosexual acts remain punishable by death in Mauritania, Sudan, and some parts of Nigeria and Somalia. Male and sometimes female homosexual acts are minor to major criminal offences in many other African countries; for example, life imprisonment is a prospective penalty in Sierra Leone, Tanzania and Uganda. A notable exception is South Africa, where same-sex marriage is legal.

In Asia, male homosexual acts remain punishable by death in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Brunei, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen; but anti-sodomy laws have been repealed in Israel (which recognizes but does not perform same-sex marriages), Japan, Kazakhstan, the Philippines, and Thailand. Additionally, life imprisonment is the formal penalty for male homosexual acts in Bangladesh, the Maldives, Myanmar, Pakistan, and Qatar.

          How Valentine’s Day is Celebrated in 28 Countries around the World?      Cache   Translate Page      
Every February 14, across the United States and in other places around the world, candy, flowers and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine. But who is this mysterious saint, and where did these traditions come from? Find out about the history of this centuries-old holiday, from ancient Roman rituals to the customs of Victorian England.

The Legend of St. Valentine

The history of Valentine’s Day – and the story of its patron saint – is shrouded in mystery. We do know that February has long been celebrated as a month of romance, and that St. Valentine’s Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. But who was Saint Valentine, and how did he become associated with this ancient rite?

The Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus, all of whom were martyred. One legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine’s actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death.

Other stories suggest that Valentine may have been killed for attempting to help Christians escape harsh Roman prisons, where they were often beaten and tortured. According to one legend, an imprisoned Valentine actually sent the first “valentine” greeting himself after he fell in love with a young girl–possibly his jailor’s daughter–who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter signed “From your Valentine,” an expression that is still in use today. Although the truth behind the Valentine legends is murky, the stories all emphasize his appeal as a sympathetic, heroic and, most importantly, romantic figure. By the Middle Ages, perhaps thanks to this reputation, Valentine would become one of the most popular saints in England and France.

Origins of Valentine’s Day: A Pagan Festival In February

While some believe that Valentine’s Day is celebrated in the middle of February to commemorate the anniversary of Valentine’s death or burial–which probably occurred around A.D. 270–others claim that the Christian church may have decided to place St. Valentine’s feast day in the middle of February in an effort to “Christianize” the pagan celebration of Lupercalia. Celebrated at the ides of February, or February 15, Lupercalia was a fertility festival dedicated to Faunus, the Roman god of agriculture, as well as to the Roman founders Romulus and Remus.

To begin the festival, members of the Luperci, an order of Roman priests, would gather at a sacred cave where the infants Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome, were believed to have been cared for by a she-wolf or lupa. The priests would sacrifice a goat, for fertility, and a dog, for purification. They would then strip the goat’s hide into strips, dip them into the sacrificial blood and take to the streets, gently slapping both women and crop fields with the goat hide. Far from being fearful, Roman women welcomed the touch of the hides because it was believed to make them more fertile in the coming year. Later in the day, according to legend, all the young women in the city would place their names in a big urn. The city’s bachelors would each choose a name and become paired for the year with his chosen woman. These matches often ended in marriage.

Valentine’s Day: A Day of Romance

Lupercalia survived the initial rise of Christianity and but was outlawed—as it was deemed “un-Christian”–at the end of the 5th century, when Pope Gelasius declared February 14 St. Valentine’s Day. It was not until much later, however, that the day became definitively associated with love. During the Middle Ages, it was commonly believed in France and England that February 14 was the beginning of birds’ mating season, which added to the idea that the middle of Valentine’s Day should be a day for romance.

Valentine greetings were popular as far back as the Middle Ages, though written Valentine’s didn’t begin to appear until after 1400. The oldest known valentine still in existence today was a poem written in 1415 by Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London following his capture at the Battle of Agincourt. The greeting is now part of the manuscript collection of the British Library in London, England. Several years later, it is believed that King Henry V hired a writer named John Lydgate to compose a valentine note to Catherine of Valois.

What would you do if your beloved gave you a wooden spoon on Valentine's Day?

Although you might be confused if you are used to chocolates in a heart-shaped box, if you happen to have grown up in Wales, that would be perfectly normal. Young men there typically present "love spoons" to their paramours, a tradition inspired by Welsh sailors creating homemade gifts for their sweethearts while at sea. The "love spoon" exchange, along with many other global Valentine's Day traditions, shows that old-fashioned romance is not dead.

Countries around the world have one-of-a-kind customs that range from Estonia's "love bus" rides for singles to mass weddings in the Philippines. While the actual practices can vary in date and target audience (some traditions specifically celebrate the singles among us!), citizens of many countries set aside time to commemorate some sort of commitment. In some places, the difference in approach to the day is even more stark, as public displays of love and affection are outright banned on February 14.

While you probably will not want to adopt all of the cultural customs highlighted below, read and consider those, which may refresh your romantic relationship, show your creative approach, and make this day unforgettable for your partner and yourself. Or, maybe, make up your own unique ritual to show your love and affection.

1.       USA
In the United States of America, there have been many varieties of cards given over the course of the years, some of which have often been rude or even quite cruel in their humor. In the times of the Civil War, cards were flagged with rich colors accompanied by patriotic and/or political motifs. Early American valentine cards were especially lithographed and hand-colored, beautiful and distinctive in design, produced with intricate lace paper and decorated with such ornaments as beads, sea shells, cones, berries and all manner of seeds. Cards were also available decorated with seaweed or moss, in addition to dried and/or artificial flowers, all of which were attached to a string which was pulled and could then be suspended, thereby creating a three-dimensional picture. Many early American cards were imported from abroad, given the poor quality of American paper at the time which was not particularly suitable for embossing. Today, American children usually exchange valentines with their friends and there may even be a classroom party.

2.       Canada
Valentine’s Day festival is celebrated with much enthusiasm in Canada. Valentine's Day balls and parties are organized all over the country where people express love for their spouses and sweethearts and enjoy to the hilt. Roses, chocolates, candies and cards are the most popular gifts for the romantic occasion. As a tradition, children in Canada exchange Valentine's Day gifts with their friends. In several schools, classroom Valentine's Day Parties are organized where children put all the valentines in a decorated box. Later, teacher or a child distributes the cards. Kids are encouraged to prepare handmade valentine. Many children also gift fancy Valentine’s Day card to parents and teachers. Songs, skits, plays and concerts are also organized by schools and societies to celebrate Valentine's Day. Students in senior school hold Valentine's Day dance parties to cherish the joyful festival.

3.       United Kingdom
The aura of mystery is alive and well on Valentine's Day in the U.K. In a tradition dating back to the Victorian era, Brits traditionally send anonymous valentines to their romantic interests. The Victorians believed signing your name on the card was considered bad luck. The U.K. also claims responsibility for starting the practice of giving roses on Valentine's Day, since that flower was traditionally seen as the favorite of Venus, the Roman goddess of love.

4.       Australia
During the Australian gold rush period, miners who were suddenly in possession of money from the new-found wealth of the Ballarat Mines were willing to pay a princely sum for elaborate valentines and merchants in the country would ship orders amounting to thousands of pounds at a time. The most extravagant Australian valentines were made of a satin cushion, perfumed and decorated in an ornate manner with flowers and colored shells. Some might even be adorned with a taxidermied humming bird or bird of paradise. This treasure, contained within a neatly decorated box, was highly valued, being both fashionable and extremely expensive.

5.       Wales
So it's not technically a Valentine's Day tradition, but rather than professing their love on February 14, the Welsh celebrate St. Dwynwen's Day on January 25. Wales Online explains that St. Dwynwen is the "Welsh patron saint of lovers" and men traditionally give women hand-carved wooden spoons as a romantic gesture. The custom is thought to have originated when Welsh sailors carved designs into wooden spoons while at sea to bring back to the women at home.

6.       Scotland
In Scotland, Valentine's Day is celebrated with a festival. At this festival, there is an equal number of unmarried males and females, each of whom write their name (or a made-up name) on a piece of paper which is then folded and placed into a hat...one hat for the ladies and one for the men. The females then draw a name from the hat containing the men's names and vice versa. Of course, it is highly likely that the two drawn names will not match, in which event, it is usually expected that the male partner with the female who selected his name. This rite having been completed, the company split up into couples and gifts are given to the ladies. The females would then pin the name of their partner over their hearts or on their sleeves. A dance often follows and, at the end of the festival, it is not unusual for marriages to take place. According to another Scottish custom, the first young man or woman encountered by chance on the street or elsewhere will become that individual's valentine. Valentine's Day gifts in Scotland are frequently given by both parties in the form of a love-token or true-love-knot.

7.       Germany
In Germany, it has become customary for the young man of a courting couple to present his beloved with flowers on February 14. Valentine gifts in Germany are usually in the shape of love tokens, complete with endearing messages. However, these are not distributed solely on Valentine's Day, but on any occasion. Even early German baptismal certificates or marriage certificates were considered at one time to have been valentines, but were more likely simply decorative and pictorial documents which contained lovely verses.

8.       France
In France, a custom known as "drawing for" once occurred. Unmarried individuals, both young and not so young, would go into houses facing each other and begin calling out across from one window to another, pairing-off with the chosen partner. If the young man failed to be particularly enthralled with his valentine, he would desert her. As a result, a bonfire would be lit later where the ladies could burn images of the ungrateful sweetheart and verbally abuse him in a loud tone as the effigy burned. This ritual was eventually abandoned since it left much room for nastiness, ridicule or even outright malice and the French government finally handed-down a decree officially banning the custom. Elegant French greetings cards known as cartes d'amities, which contained tender messages, were given not totally as a Valentine but chiefly as a result of a fashion which was popular in England at the time.

9.       Italy
In Italy, Valentine's Day was once celebrated as a Spring Festival, held in the open air, where young people would gather in tree arbors or ornamental gardens to listen to music and the reading of poetry. However, over the course of the years, this custom steadily ceased and has not now been celebrated for centuries. In Turin, it was formerly the custom for betrothed couples to announce their engagements on February 14. For several days ahead of time, the stores would be decorated and filled with all manner of bon-bons.

10.   Austria
Austria has some rather obscure courtship customs that may or may not be associated with Saint Valentine's Day. Nonetheless, it is customary for a young man to present his beloved with a bunch of flowers on February 14.

11.   Spain
In Spain, it is customary for courting couples to exchange gifts on Valentine's Day and for husbands to send their wives bouquets of roses.

12.   Slovenia
In Slovenia, February 14 is considered a great day for working in the fields, according to many reports. St. Valentine is one of the patron saints of spring, so what better time to get out on the farm or vineyard after the long winter and start working on the future harvest? All isn't lost for lovers, though. Roughly a month later, Slovenians traditionally celebrate St. Gregory's Day, March 12, as a romantic holiday.

13.   Poland
Many Polish people celebrate Valentine’s Day (Walentynki), a day associated with romance and love, on February 14. Valentine’s Day focuses on love, romance, appreciation and friendship. Chocolates, candies shaped in red hearts, and other gifts are given to loved ones on Valentine’s Day. Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Women’s Day are also observed in Poland, in which friends, partners, and family members received gifts, cards or flowers.

14.   Ukraine
When the so-called Iron Curtain fell down, people of the Former Soviet Union saw that there are a lot of nice European and American holidays and have eagerly adopted some of them. There is no point in describing Ukrainian St. Valentine's Day as there is practically no difference from the Western holiday of the same name.

15.   Estonia & Finland
All aboard the love bus! While Estonia celebrates Friend's Day on February 14, the country also has an interesting tradition for single people. Those not romantically attached on Valentine's Day can take a ride on the love bus — yes, it’s really called that — in the hopes of meeting someone special. And even if you don't meet your match aboard the bus, taking the ride with your other pals is your Friend's Day consolation prize. In Finland, February 14 is also known as Friend's Day — a holiday traditionally celebrated with your entire squad, not just your significant other. Cards and gifts are still in order, but for everybody. Even if Friend's Day sounds a lot like a kinder name for Singles Awareness Day, there are still plenty of people in the Nordic country, where public displays of affection are rare, who celebrate their romantic relationships on February 14: it's a popular day to get engaged, and stores are full of heart-shaped Valentine's Day paraphernalia.

16.   Denmark
Although Valentine’s Day is a relatively new holiday in Denmark (celebrated since the early 1990s according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark), the country has embraced February 14th with a Danish twist. Rather than roses, friends and sweethearts exchange pressed white flowers called snowdrops. Another popular Danish Valentine’s Day tradition is the exchange of “lover’s cards.” While lover’s cards were originally transparent cards which showed a picture of the card giver presenting a gift to his sweetheart, the term is now synonymous with any card exchanged on Valentine’s Day. On February 14th, men also give women gaekkebrev, a “joking letter” consisting of a funny poem or rhyme written on intricately cut paper and signed only with anonymous dots. If a woman who receives the gaekkebrev can correctly guess the sender, she earns herself an Easter egg later that year.

17.   Japan
Japanese women do not wait for men to make the first move, at least on Valentine’s Day. For one day of the year, Japanese women traditionally give men gifts and affection, instead of the other way around. One particularly popular gift is chocolate — homemade honmei-choco for the object of your desire or store-bought giri-choco as a non-romantic sign of affection for friends and coworkers. The nation's men return the favor on March 14, known as White Day, when guys give women white chocolate or other white gifts.

18.   China
The equivalent to Valentine’s Day in China is Qixi, or the Seventh Night Festival, which falls on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month each year. According to Chinese lore, Zhinu, a heavenly king’s daughter, and Niulang, a poor cowherd, fell in love, married and had twins. When Zhinu’s father learned of their marriage, he sent his queen to bring Zhinu back to the stars. Upon hearing the cries of Niulang and the children, the king allowed Zhinu and Niulang to meet once a year on Qixi. During Qixi, young women prepare offerings of melon and other fruits to Zhinu in hopes of finding a good husband. Couples also head to temples to pray for happiness and prosperity. At night, people look to the heavens to watch as stars Vega and Altair (Zhinu and Niulang, respectively) come close during the star-crossed pair’s annual reunion.

19.   South Korea
Many women in South Korea (as in Japan) spend Valentine's Day showering men with gifts, and the men do the giving on White Day, March 14. But South Korea takes things a step further with a third holiday. On April 14, known as Black Day, single friends gather to eat noodles and celebrate their (lack of) relationship status. The holiday takes its name from the noodle dish, which includes white noodles in a black bean sauce. Black Day celebrations are spirited and fun, but somber in origin — the black food symbolizes sorrow.

20.   Taiwan
Valentine's Day is celebrated in Taiwan on February 14, but there is also a special Valentine's Day on July 7 of the lunar calendar, based on an ancient Chinese folktale (**). Both dates are equally as important. Many men purchase expensive bouquets of roses and other flowers for their sweethearts on these days. According to Taiwan tradition, the color and number of the roses holds much significance. For example, one red rose means "an only love," eleven roses means "a favorite," ninety-nine roses means "forever," and one hundred eight roses means "marry me."

21.   India
Valentine's Day celebration is a recent phenomenon in India but has caught the fancy of people to a great extent. Though some see it as a western import and hesitate to celebrate, there exist a large and growing number of those who love the feeling behind the beautiful and romantic festival. Especially to the Indian youth February 14 signifies love - a day when people express their affection for others. Just as several other countries, people in India too celebrate the Valentine's Day by exchanging cards and gifts.

22.   Iraq
Exchanging over-the-top gifts for Valentine's Day may seem like a Western tradition, but Iraqis also celebrate February 14 in style. In Iraq, huge teddy bears, red roses, and traditional Valentine's Day cards are common. Al Arabiya explains that on Valentine's Day, all of Baghdad appears to be overtaken by the color red. That said, conservative Muslims don't celebrate the day and view it as a Western holiday.

23.   Saudi Arabia
Valentine's Day is officially banned in Saudi Arabia. In the days before February 14, it’s illegal to sell roses and love-themed greeting cards in the desert kingdom, where conservative Muslims believe the holiday promotes alcohol consumption and premarital sex. If you happen to be there, you're likely to encounter officers from Saudi Arabia's Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, especially if you engage in any public displays of affection (those are also punishable by law). One shop owner in Saudi Arabia told WorldPost that there's a sort of underground market for red roses; customers place the orders over the phone, and the secret gifts are hidden in the back of the store, in case police inspect the retailer. Saudi Arabia isn't the only country to clamp down on Valentine’s Day. Iran, Malaysia, and Indonesia have enacted similar bans.

24.   Philippines
How would you feel about sharing your wedding day with another couple? We think of brides and grooms as loving the spotlight, but that's not necessarily the case on Valentine’s Day in the Philippines, where couples line up for mass weddings on February 14. On Valentine's Day in 2013, 200 couples married in one ceremony in Quezon City, for example, and a total 4,000 couples were married throughout the country, Xinhua reports.

25.   Brazil
Brazil celebrates its version of Valentine's Day, Dia dos Namorados, in June. The holiday on June 12 is timed to coincide with St. Anthony’s Day on June 13. St. Anthony of Padua died on June 13, 1231 and is considered by some to be the patron saint of marriage. Dia dos Namorados, which roughly translates to "Lovers' Day," or "Boyfriends' /Girlfriends' Day," is celebrated with gifts and decorations similar to those traditionally found on Valentine's Day. Celebrating in June also leaves more time in February for Carnival, the raucous annual festival timed to coincide with the beginning of Lent.

26.   Argentina
One day isn't enough to celebrate Valentine's in Argentina, land of Tango.  Argentinians take a week to celebrate the occasion.  In addition to February 14th they set aside seven days in July for “sweetness week.”  From the 13th to the 20th, lovers and friends will exchange candies and kisses. This week typically ends with “Friendship Day”.

27.   Chile
Chile is known as “the land of poets”, and it is true that Chileans are really romantic too. The “Dia de San Valentin” is anticipated greatly by lovers. Chileans love to celebrate and Valentine’s Day is a special occasion for couples, who celebrate with true excitement. It’s typical to walk around the city and see decorations all around as shops, malls and streets are beautifully decorated with flowers, balloons, and heart garlands. Restaurants, pubs, clubs, travel agencies and hotels engage in huge marketing promotions to offer incentives to lovers to do something really special. Flowers, chocolates, love letters and jewels are typical gifts. Going out for a romantic dinner is also a tradition for couples and public concerts enhance the romantic mood throughout towns and cities across the country.

28.   South Africa
Like many parts of the world, South Africa celebrates Valentine’s Day with festivals, flowers and other tokens of love. It’s also customary for women in South Africa to wear their hearts on their sleeves on February 14th; women pin the names of their love interest on their shirtsleeves, an ancient Roman tradition known as Lupercalia. In some cases, this is how South African men learn of their secret admirers.

Tweets (Tulsi Gabbard). She is literally the only sane choice from either party.

"Bernie Sanders-Style Politics Are Defining 2020 Race, Unnerving Moderates" (Martin/Ember) (((('donors'))) and their employees are terrified, not that a progressive Democrat will lose, but that she or he might win):
"And about the Republican strategy, led by Mr. Trump himself, to pin the “socialism” label on the Democrats in 2020?

Senator Brian Schatz of Hawaii said it was mostly just his party’s elite “donor class” that had anything to fear from a sweeping, progressive agenda.

Well, them and the arbiters of conventional political wisdom, he added.

“What we’ve learned from last two presidential elections is that nobody knows anything,” Mr. Schatz said of the election of former President Barack Obama and Mr. Trump. “The people who write op-eds and stroke their chins and tell us how to win are the people who have been getting it wrong for almost two decades now.”"
"Power Failure and Blackout: An Update on the Situation in Venezuela" (Strether).  "Venezuela Denounces US Participation in Electric Sabotage".  Little Marco knew more about the details than he should have known, and also seemed able to predict that this would happen.  "The Psychosis of the Neocons: Senator Marco Rubio “Makes Fun” of the Suffering of the Venezuelan People" (Nimmo).

Speaking of Albright:  two devils: tweet (William Owen):
"500,000 dead Iraqi children and a coup in Venezuela "
"Another Failed Coup in Venezuela?" (Ciccariello-Maher) (Guido's a big bust, and is now more valuable to the CIA as the short end of a false flag):
"On Monday, Guaidó made a less-than-triumphant return to Venezuela and, despite his violation of a travel ban, the government has opted not to arrest him for now. If anything, Maduro will protect him at all costs: Amid threats on Guaidó’s life, the Lima Group has warned of dire consequences should anything happen to him. If Guaidó were to be killed, however, it would almost certainly be at the hands of a Venezuelan right-wing eager to provoke military intervention (the government has dismantled similar plots in the past)."
"Trudeau, Bolsonaro, et al: “Informed Consent” and the Political Contempt for Human Life" (Deutsch).  Bolsonaro, Guido, Trudeau, peas in a pod and the statesmen of our time.  "The hidden key to the SNC-Lavalin scandal" (Garossano).

"Macron Calls for “European Renaissance” in Controversial Alt-Right Pivot" (Durocher).  "Macron publishes platform for European elections calling for EU police state" (Lantier).  "Algeria: The Iceberg That Could Sink Emmanuel Macron" (McConnell). It is useful for people to see what a Khazarocracy looks like:  "Act 17: Police soak Yellow Vest demonstrators with water cannon, fire teargas (VIDEO)".  Tweet (Sarah Abdallah):
"Meet the unarmed protesters who have been mutilated by Putin’s thugs. Oh no wait... These are demonstrators disfigured by Macron’s police in France. Nothing to see here. "
"Rouhani and Imran Khan Discussion Action Against al Qaeda":
"Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has urged Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan to take “decisive” action against the al-Qaeda* linked Jaish ul-Adl terrorist group which claimed responsibility for the deadly 13 February terror attack against IRGC forces on a highway in eastern Iran near the Pakistani border.

‘We are awaiting your decisive action against these terrorists,” Rouhani told Khan in a phone call on Saturday, as quoted by Press TV.

The Iranian leader added that Iran was “fully ready to cooperate with the Pakistani Army and government to eradicate these terrorists, whose presence is not in favour of us, you or the region.”

“We should not allow decades of friendship and fraternity between the two countries to be affected by the actions of small terrorist groups, the source of whose financing and arms is known to us both,” Rouhani stressed.

Tehran earlier accused Saudi Arabia, Israel and the United States of facilitating terrorist violence against Iran.

Khan reportedly responded that Pakistani forces had closed in on the terrorists’ hideouts, and that there would soon be “good news” for Iran.

“It is in Pakistan’s own interest not to allow our territory to be used by terrorist groups, and the Pakistani army is prepared to confront the terrorists more decisively with the information provided by Iran,” the Pakistani prime minister said, according to Iran’s Islamic Republic News Agency."
"Mueller's Manafort Scam: 4 Years In The Slammer For Helping Ukraine Against Russia!"(McCarthy).  It can't be repeated enough that there is wrongdoing, but it all involves Ukrainians, the people who have set up much of #Russiagate.  The short sentence reflects the fact that what Manafort did is standard, bipartisan, operating procedure in Washington, done by all these political camp followers peddling influence, and the only reason Manafort ended up in a courtroom was the need to find somebody to take the fall for #Russiagate, simply to prove that it exists in some form, so the Democrats could maintain their precious ((('donor'))) model of grifting.  He's a terrible fellow, and indubitably a crook, but also a victim.

"Trump and the Gordian Knot, Year Two" (Armstrong).  It remains unclear if Trump, what with all those circumcised dicks in his mouth, has completely given up on MAGA and decided to take a break from sanity to collect more shekels, or whether the most recent round of nonsensical behavior is just some kind of head fake before he returns to electioneering mode.  Despite everything, he still hasn't crossed any Rubicons.

Yank and Yang and dine:  tweets (Daniel Schulman). Trump consistently invites the local human trafficker/pimp to dine with him and his fancy pals, and the pimp sets up an office to sell seats at the same table.  This strikes as more of a real scandal than the entirety of #Russiagate.

"The Trump-Yang Voter Explained" (Wallace).  "Andrew Yang Rejects Support From White Nationalists" (Wallace).  There are two big elephants in the room - the Anthropocene, and the massive job losses which are going to occur very soon due to various forms of automation.  It is striking that both are completely ignored by most of the political classes, and Yang is the only one even mentioning the massive social effects of the job losses.

"Syria Preparing Its Missiles for the Next Battle with Israel" (Magnier).  It would be hilarious if Israel reached its inevitable ignoble end as a result of some desperation Bibi campaign stunt.

The English language has an expression 'if the shoe fits', and the Khazars, as part of their Jewish pseudoscience of psychoanalysis, have the concept of projection.  "Did pro-Israel lobby funding influence Democrats' responses to Ilhan Omar?" (Perkins).  "The Shameful Attack that Backfired" (Zogby).  Tweet (Roosh):
"PornHub employee appears on Reddit AMA criticizing their forced incest porn trend to say that it is "antisemitic rhetoric." Thing is, no one brought up the Jews. She quickly edited her comment. "
It is not uncommon for the guilty to misinterpret what they hear as an accusation that in fact has not been made.  Omar has in fact been extremely careful throughout in what she says, as devastating as it has turned out to be, because the Khazars and their beshekeled stooges consistently rushed to fill in the blanks.  It is interesting that the things that she didn't say, the words they put in her mouth to make a better story - largely as bait to the Americans who see a visible Muslim - the quintessential elements of 'anti-Semitism', are actually 100% true.  Note from the Mandel tweet that he actually admits everything, but claims it is just self-defense for the poor universal victims buying a little respite from the haters (and a series of wars which have ruined the lives of millions of people).

More 'emperor's new clothes' truth, and gleeful responses to finally hearing it:  "Ilhan Omar Blasts Obama For "Caging Of Kids" Along Border, 'Getting Away With Murder' Overseas" (Durden).

"Meghan McCain Ridiculed After Accusing Jewish Cartoonist Of Anti-Semitic Cartoon Of Her" (Scarce).

"More Power to You Miss Omar" (Margolis) (such a 'nice' people!):
"The prescient and courageous Pat Buchanan said it years ago: the US Congress was ‘Israeli occupied territory.’ His political career was ruined.

So was my mother’s career. She was one of the first American female journalists to cover the Mideast in the early 1950’s. After extensively reporting the unknown fact that there were nearly one million Palestinian refugees driven from the new state of Israel, she was silenced by advertisers pulling ads from the papers she wrote for and, finally, threats to throw acid in my face. Her career was ruined."
"If US sanctions Turkey, can India be far behind?" (Bhadrakumar) (but was it really Melania?):
"The Turks harbour the suspicion that the failed coup in July 2016, which was masterminded by the Turkish Islamist preacher Fetullah Gulen living in Pennsylvania in exile for the past two decades, had covert American support.

Last week, incidentally, US First Lady Melania Trump visited a pre-kindergarten class in Oklahoma, which Ankara believes is linked to supporters of Gulen. Turks believe that the White House was taunting Erdogan."
"“Canada’s Dershowitz”, Apologist for Israeli War Crimes, nominated for Peace Prize" (Engler). Cotler.  A total monster, a man so evil that most of us can't even comprehend it.  Blood pours from his fangs, so he is a perfect winner.

Although it is not, of course, in the (((media))), the fish-in-a-barrel murder tactics of the 'nice' people - I just can't get over how consistently 'nice' they are! - continues, week by week:  tweets (Billy):
"My former doctor, a wonderful human being from London, Ontario, Canada, was shot by Israeli security forces. He was there to treat casualties and conduct research on 3D printed tourniquets. He never approached the fence."
"Why is there so little media skepticism about Leaving Neverland and its allegations against Michael Jackson?" (Walsh).  Both alleged 'victims' have separately been completely debunked.  Oprah Winfrey is working overtime to sell this drivel, and she is essentially an employee of David Geffen, with this movie part of the massive Geffen-protection racket of distraction.  Geffen is infamous for being the big 'Hollywood' pedo ringleader, and the strategy - which includes the Atlantic take-down of Singer (also guilty as hell, but a relatively small fish) - has been very successful, with Geffen never mentioned except on the gossip sites.  The same (((people))) are still finding ways to make money off poor Michael.

          Syrian refugee crisis approaches eight-year mark      Cache   Translate Page      
Lebanon (MNN) -- Friday marks the eighth year of the Syrian refugee crisis. What began as pro-democracy protests in March 2011 quickly evolved into a full-scale civil war. Today, there’s no end in sight. More from BBC News here. Why has the crisis dragged on for so long? “Everything in the Middle East is complex, but the Syrian War is really complex,” replies Heart for Lebanons Tom Atema. “For every question that’s asked about the Syrian refugee crisis there’s 20 answers, and every one of the answers is correct.” Is the Syrian refugee crisis a never-ending disaster, or an unprecedented opportunity? Atema chooses the latter. “We don’t have to wait for the war to be over with before we can start changing the face of the Middle East,” he explains.

“This is our opportunity to reach Muslims with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And, I’ve got to be honest with you, I don’t understand why more people aren’t involved.”

Syrian refugee crisis: a summary

Syrian refugee crisis

While totals vary, an estimated 11- to 12-million people inside and outside of Syria need humanitarian aid. The Syrian refugee crisis in Lebanon is deteriorating, and the number of people living on less than US $3.84 a day has risen from 30- to 70-percent. A majority of Syrians – more than 80-percent - live below the global poverty line. Over 85-percent have little or no access to clean water and healthcare. Children and young people make up about half of the Syrian refugee population. Syria – what remains of it, anyway – holds little prospect for those who return. Multiple bombings flattened entire villages. Only half of the country’s health facilities are still functioning. The ongoing war poses a continual threat to safety. “It’s really a proxy war between Iran and Saudi Arabia, and the [Syrian] people are caught in the middle,” says Atema, referring to the conflict.

“I don’t think this thing will end anytime soon. I don’t see any country in the world having the ‘want to’ to help get in there and end [the Syrian war], never mind the funds to rebuild Syria.”

The silver lining

The future may look bleak, but the Syrian refugee crisis holds a silver lining. Every physical need gives Heart for Lebanon’s staff an opportunity to begin conversations with refugees. Those conversations turn into friendships, and friendships provide a platform for spiritual discussions. “It’s all about God’s compassion and love, His love for us,” says Atema. “When you show that to the refugees, they ask questions.” Authorities are taking note, too. Recently, at an informal weekly briefing, one United Nations leader said, “Out of all the NGOs (non-governmental organizations) in Lebanon that are working with Syrian refugees, Heart for Lebanon is the only one that is consistently caring for the people and is willing to have conversations with them.” See how Heart for Lebanon helps Syrian refugees.

Next steps

Now that you know, what will you do? Prayer is an easy and effective place to start, but don’t stop there. First, pray for an end to conflict in Syria. Our God directs the affairs of men, and He can do what seems impossible. Pray Heart for Lebanon’s team will have strength and endurance as they help Syrian refugees. Pray the Gospel will reach those who need to hear it. Then, ask the Lord where He’d like you to direct His finances. If He leads you to support Heart for Lebanon’s work, you can donate here.

“We have all this information, we have all this data, we have all this proof that this is our opportunity, this is the need. But... God’s got to open the hearts of people to respond to it.”

Remarks
Michael R. Pompeo
Secretary of State
Hilton Americas-Houston Hotel
Houston, Texas
March 12, 2019


SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you, Dan. Thank you all for joining me. I see you standing in the back. It’s like church, there’s empty pews in the front if you want to come up and grab a seat. I do think – is there anyone from the Petroleum Equipment Suppliers Association here? I’m pretty sure I’m the only former member to ever serve as Secretary of State, so you should put that right on the front of your web page. I think that’s legal.

Good evening, everyone, and thanks to you all for being here. I heard CERAWeek has been just spectacular. It’s quite a crowd. I’ve seen many of you here. I’ve had the chance to get to know many of you as well. People call Washington “the swamp,” and they call Houston “the bayou.” Now, I will tell you that they’re both the same in August in a suit and a tie, but there is – there’s one really big difference. One of the two works desperately to seek rents from its citizens, and the other works desperately to create wealth for the people who live there. I will leave to you which is which, but suffice to say, I’m glad to be in Houston.

It’s great to join so many foreign dignitaries and business leaders as well that operate all around the world. I’ll certainly spend a great deal of time tonight focused on the United States and the things I’m doing as America’s most senior diplomat, but it’s wonderful to see folks from all around the world who are involved in this important endeavor. Dan, thanks for your kind remarks. I’ve read Dan’s work for an awfully long time. You all are familiar with The Prize, but your ideas have informed me more broadly than that, more than just about energy. I’ll talk about The Commanding Heights. That’s a book that was written now 20-odd years ago, which I read in hardback. I paid full price, Dan.

MR YERGIN: Thank you.

SECRETARY POMPEO: But I think it’s important for what it is that I’m doing as Secretary of State. As Dan said, I spent a fair amount of time in the oil and gas industry. I ran a small company; it was called Sentry International. We made and sold mud pumps and swivels and hook blocks and downhole equipment, and we distributed sucker rod, so I know the industry well, the whole nine yards in oil and gas. I spent a lot of time in Midland, Odessa, Longview, and all kinds of – Oklahoma and Canada. Is there anybody from Lufkin here tonight? So my partners and I swore that we would listen to the quarterly conference call for Lufkin every quarter until they mentioned Sentry as destroying their business. We were small enough it never happened, but we continued to live in hope that we could compete and grow and prosper in the way that so many of you have.

My time as Secretary of State isn’t that far from – removed from what I did running that small company headquartered in Wichita, Kansas. The reason why is something you know; it’s obvious for all of you in the audience. Because we are now in the new age of discovery that history will remember as society changing in scale, and global changing. Instead of sailing off to new lands the way it was done old-school by Columbus and Magellan, we’re making discoveries right here in the United States of America right under our feet. And you all know that here in America we have the free enterprise system to thank for this modern-day miracle. And I want to talk about why that matters. Things like horizontal drilling and fracturing, the Shale Revolution, the oil derricks that dot the landscape all throughout the Permian Basin matters. New drilling technology and greater energy output are transforming American life and lives all around the world in the same way that the changes did when Spindletop first took place back in 1901. It was a game-changer, and what this industry is doing today is game-changing as well.

I travel the world some, and when I do and meet with my foreign minister counterparts or presidents or prime ministers, they’ll ask me how did America come to do this. How did you literally blow out American energy production to go from a place of scarcity to a place of massive exports. And I tell them that they should simply look at places like Midland, Texas, people that are willing to work their tails off, often without a college education, earn six-figure salaries and they run businesses themselves that have ‘Now Hiring’ signs hanging on their front doorstep. Look at places, too, like Kaktovik, Alaska, the polar bear capital of the United States of America. Their small native community is now working diligently to tap into the resources that they have under their feet. And you see this – you see this in towns like Wichita, Kansas, all across America, that the economic struggles, the lack of jobs that took place for a decade no longer have to be. We can continue to be the engine – and the energy – and as we can continue to be the engine that succeeds in building out the United States of America.

Now, recent history should remind us all that we’re not just producing energy for Americans. It’s never truly been the case, but less so now than ever before. Today, you all know we’re exporting crude oil at levels that were previously unimaginable. It took two partners to achieve that. It took our shale producers and risk-takers, and it took Congress lifting the oil export ban in 2015, which I voted for. You should all see me as I walk out and say thanks. (Laughter and applause.)

In August of last year, the United States surpassed Russia as the world’s top producer. When it comes to global supply, U.S. oil production rose at the fastest pace in history, the largest one-year increase in oil production that the world has ever seen. That’s awesome and it’s important.

After all, only about a decade ago, we did live in a world where we imported 60 percent of our oil, and now we’ve shrugged off that oak of energy dependence, not just thanks to oil, but we’re doing the same in natural gas today as well, and I know there’s more and even a brighter future there. We shouldn’t forget, too, about the incredible growth in renewable energy. I’m confident that the American system – leaving the commanding heights in the hands of private risk-takers – will allow that industry to continue to grow and export as well.

I had the chance to meet with Secretary Kissinger about two months ago, and I was asking about a handful of things, and he, 45 years ago, brought foreign ministers to his office to figure out how the world was going to deal with energy scarcity. A couple weeks back, I brought Dan into my office to talk about how the heck we were going to make sure we could get it from the American interior to the coast so that we could deliver this to foreign partners who are demanding this.

And there, I want to turn to the real focus, the main topic, what our newfound energy abundance means for American foreign policy, what you all can help me and President Trump deliver to the world.

It’s really – it’s very simple: Our plentiful oil supplies allow us to help our friends secure diversity for their energy resources. We don’t want our European allies hooked on Russian gas through the NordStream II project any more than we ourselves want to depend on Venezuela for our oil supplies.

This need, this desperate need for diversification is why we exported more crude oil last year to countries all across the globe. Places as diverse as India, Japan, China, the Republic of Korea, Italy, Ireland, the United Arab Emirates. The list is long. It’s why, shortly before the United States made its first LNG shipment to Europe, it made it to a place that people don’t think about, the country of Portugal that now has access to American energy resources.

You should all know – and I hope you have seen this. I’ve been doing this now all of 11 months, so I’ve got it all figured out. I hope you all have seen that my team at the State Department is working hard to expand these relationships. Last April, we formalized a commitment to bolster Vietnam’s energy security. In October, the State Department hosted its first dialogue with Australia on energy security. And these operations, these opportunities will just be the beginning.

But truth is, here’s my point: We’re not just exporting American energy, we’re exporting our commercial value system to our friends and to our partners. The more we can spread the United States model of free enterprise, of the rule of law, of diversity and stability, of transparency and transactions, the more successful the United States will be and the more successful and secure the American people will be.

Our model matters now, frankly, more than ever in an era of great power rivalry and competition where some nations are using their energy for malign ends, and not to promote prosperity in the way we do here in the West. They don’t have the values of freedom and liberty, of the rule of law that we do, and they’re using their energy to destroy ours.

Take China, just for starters. China’s illegal island-building in international waterways isn’t simply a security matter.

By blocking development in the South China Sea through coercive means, China prevents ASEAN members from accessing more than $2.5 trillion in recoverable energy reserves. To contrast, the United States Government promotes energy security for those Southeast Asian nations. We want countries in the region to have access to their own energy. We want to help them. We want to create partnerships. We want transparent transactions, not debt traps. We explore responsibly.

China doesn’t play by that same set of rules. Its values are simply different. You see that in places as diverse as Africa, where they often ship in their own labor, creating jobs for Chinese workers rather than for those in the local economy. It’s using the debt trap which I referred to just a moment ago to put these countries in a place where it isn’t a commercial transaction, it’s a political transaction designed to bring harm and political influence in the country in which they’re operating.

Many of you may not know this: China’s largest creditor today – excuse me, Latin America’s largest creditor today is China.

And we all know the story in Russia. It invaded Ukraine to gain access to oil and gas reserves. It in turn deprived Ukraine of the possibility of developing those resources for itself and using its pipelines and its networks to bring energy to its own people. Rather, it uses those pipelines to put pressure – political pressure – on the people of Ukraine.

The story isn’t too terribly different in Syria. Assad covets the oil fields to the east of the Euphrates River in the eastern part of the country. He wants those resources, he wants those wealth to continue to impoverish the people of Syria, and use those resources for himself and the cronies who are around him.

Perhaps there’s no clearer example than in Iran. Iran uses its energy exports to exert undue influence all across the Middle East, most particularly today on Iraq. While the United States is working to develop an independent, sovereign Iraq, Iran is using its energy to create a vassal state. We have worked hard over the past months to reduce the flow of Iranian crude oil around the world, to convince the Iranian leadership to protect its citizens and deliver to its citizens what it is they’re asking for, and to reduce the risk of terror and instability throughout the Middle East.

There could not be more of a contrast about how America uses its energy resources than how the leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran use their.

And finally, as we see in the headlines today, Cuba props up Venezuela’s Maduro regime. That’s because Venezuela ships 50,000-some-odd barrels of oil today at a subsidized price to Cuba, providing roughly 30 percent of its overall energy needs.

You all, the wealth that you’re creating here in the United States, can change that. Look, this is the world we live in. The good news is that we know how our model is superior. And as Daniel Yergin wrote in that book back in 1998, it is markets, not governments, that have proven more adept from the commanding heights. But our way of life, our business model, and our future aren’t things that we can take for granted. There is no certainty that this model will continue.

The Trump administration is working strongly, based on its firmly held conviction that we must further America’s interests by widening the tools we have available to our diplomats, especially the tool of American energy abundance. You all know this: It’s a complex, interconnected world. You have partnerships with companies all across the globe, and the United States has to compete. We have to create energy security for those all around the world. And we can do this. We can do this by partnership, by American diplomats working to ensure that markets are open for American businesses all around the world.

There are three ways. First, we can do this through facilitating investment. We do that by creating the engine for capital formation here in the United States. Foreign firms have invested more than 100 billion in the U.S. shale sector just since 2008. Twenty percent of these investments were joint investments between foreign companies and American companies. We can continue to promote that.

You won’t see this in many other places, but there are places. In Southeast Asia, the United States is the single largest source of cumulative foreign investment. And the State Department has played an important role in helping investors make good decisions and getting access. An example is our program about the Indo-Pacific being open. We call it the Asia Edge Initiative. It helps Indo-Pacific partners import, produce, and deploy their own energy resources.

The second way, other than investment, is we can promote energy security by encouraging countries to partner with the United States all around the world. And I’ve seen this at work. We’re reminding them that we’re simply better to do business with than Russia, China, or Iran. Our deals come with no hidden strings attached, our contracts are clear, our motives unambiguous.

On recent trips, my State Department colleagues and I have been touting the high standards of transparency, responsible financing, and adherence to the rule of law that American companies bring along with them. It’s what you all are known for, what American businesses are known for.

I’ll give you a good example. I was in Warsaw now – oh, goodness, it must have been three or four weeks ago. I was with Foreign Minister Czaputowicz. He and I were discussing how we can diversify the Polish energy supply, not only with energy but with routes and with the types of fuels that we can deliver to them. We’re making progress. We’re accomplishing parts of that mission. We’re doing it with the help of countries[1] like Sempra Energy, like Cheniere and Venture Global LNG. They’re helping destroy the Russian monopoly on Polish energy.

And although it’s certainly the case that our firms will benefit financially, this isn’t just about dollars and cents for American companies. It’s about America’s national security. It’s about Russian influence peddling and the need to stop it. We must bring this to an end, and you all can be an important part of that.

It was Winston Churchill who once said when it comes to energy security, quote, “safety and certainty … lie in variety and in variety alone.”

That may not be quite true, but it’s certainly an important thing for each of us to think about and American diplomats to help you deliver on. We commend countries like Croatia for what they’re doing with the LNG terminal on Krk Island, as well as Lithuania for taking similar steps to diversify and acquire energy away from the Russian footprint.

That brings me to the third and final way that the State Department can help achieve this national security through energy abundance. We’re pushing bad actors – those who use their energy towards malign ends – off the target.

I talked about Iran. You know its role in global energy markets. We know that role is diminishing. Its exports have tanked due to our pressure campaign, and we have every intention of driving Iranian oil exports to zero just as quickly as we can.

We’ll continue with sanctions until Iran behaves in the way normal nations do, without threatening assassination campaigns in Europe, conducting terror campaigns throughout Syria and Iraq, without underwriting Hizballah. These are the ways that energy can keep Americans, Europeans, and Western countries all more secure.

And we’re committed to doing this. We’re committed to using all of the economic tools at our disposal in Venezuela, where our sanctions to date on Venezuela kicked in back in January. We are hoping and working towards a good outcome there.

We need to continue to build our energy security in the ways I’ve described. We need to roll up our sleeves and compete by facilitating investment all across the world and encouraging partners to buy from us and by punishing bad actors.

The State Department wants to work with each and every one in this room tonight, American companies and foreign companies alike. We want to achieve these goals because we think we have the model that will make not only America but the world more secure.

In the days ahead, you should know, America will continue to be asked to meet the world’s energy demand, especially in places like the Indo-Pacific. Our private partners are essential to that. The private sector will be absolutely instrumental. It certainly can’t be done if the commanding heights are handed to the government. But neither private enterprise nor the federal government can do it alone. We need each other. It is American producers, working in tandem with American diplomats, who can create this stability and prosperity all around the world.

As I close and prepare to take questions from Dan, I want to encourage the rest of the world to get on board with this project. Come follow America’s energy blueprint, which is to innovate, not subjugate; to contribute, not to coerce; to allow markets to command the heights.

At least for the rest of my lifetime, the world will need oil and gas and petrochemicals to produce gasoline, to produce jet fuel, fertilizers, and pharmaceuticals.

We should consider ourselves pretty darn lucky here in the United States. We’ve worked hard. But in the age of the new discovery, our shared ability to provide these things is now greater than at any other point of history, and we need to keep it that way. I know that you’ll work alongside, as you should know that America’s State Department will continue to work alongside you.

Thank you for being here. May God bless you and may God bless the United States of America. (Applause.)

MR YERGIN: Thank you, Mr. Secretary. That was great.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you.

MR YERGIN: Thank you, Mr. Secretary (inaudible) heights. (Laughter.)

SECRETARY POMPEO: Available in the lobby.

MR YERGIN: Or online.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Or online, yes.

MR YERGIN: Yes. As – you described this massive growth in abundance, and I guess when you met Secretary Kissinger, your predecessor, he must’ve been a little envious of the position, given what --

SECRETARY POMPEO: Yes.

MR YERGIN: Yes.

SECRETARY POMPEO: I think so.

MR YERGIN: Yeah. So you’ve described the objectives. How is this abundance affecting the role of the State Department itself?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So this has always been – I mean, the State Department has 1,700-plus economic officers whose mission it is around the world – we’re in 180-plus embassies – whose mission is to ensure that American companies get a fair shake, a real opportunity. Our task now is to make sure we understand what it is you do, that we have the context for what it is you’re trying to achieve. These diplomats haven’t, for the most part, lived their life in the energy sector, so these are fields with which they may well not be familiar. But we’re determined, and President Trump and I have both made clear that one of our missions is to make sure that our team knows that, that our team is on the field, that we’re in every corner of the world working to make sure that American companies have access without tariffs, without non-tariff barriers, all the things that you see in the news. And you should, if you haven’t – if you operate in a country and you haven’t reached out to your embassy, America’s embassy, you must do that. If you’re in Washington, stop in, meet with Assistant Secretary Fannon and our team. We’re determined to work alongside to understand and be able to help you all deliver the energy security that I described in my remarks.

MR YERGIN: This evening you’ve mentioned, and in other important speeches, the Indo-Pacific concept. And how do you see the role of the U.S. position itself in terms of the overall growing competition in the region?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So the challenge that’s presented to America and to the world by China is different than one that we’ve confronted before. Our National Security Strategy defines how we think about China in the Trump administration. There are many differences, but one of the most fundamental is we’ve never had another country of the scale of China, with the military of the scale of China’s, that has now expanded into space and property that they do not have a lawful claim to, but with which America has such a deep, intertwined economic and commercial set of relationships. It was often the case, as it is with certain countries today, that we don’t have those commercial relationships, so we move away and try and drive them out of the marketplace. China is more complicated and more difficult, but no less challenging to ensuring that America’s wealth creation engine is around 10 and 20 and 30 years from now.

In the Indo-Pacific proper, I don’t travel to any country in Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia where energy isn’t a topic. I will be honest; where – depending on where I am, they mention it either in public or in private. Many of them don’t have the capacity on their own to stand up to the coercive behavior of China, where China moves in and attempts to use its economic clout to influence and control their government. They all welcome companies from the United States. They welcome American capacity for the rule of law. They may not always say this, they may not always speak their mind publicly, but know that I have literally not met a single one of those countries or leaders from one of those countries that didn’t want a more American opportunity, more American resources, more American technology and innovation as part of the mix.

MR YERGIN: You spoke about the Middle East. And of course, the Middle East is always a central question, but your Middle East Strategic Alliance is a unique approach. How does energy fit into that and how do you see the Middle East Strategic Alliance working with the other organizations in the group, like the Gulf Cooperation Council?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So the Middle East Strategic Alliance is still in its very formative stages. There’s still a lot of work to do. We have multiple pillars that we’re trying to build an alliance around – the Gulf states, Egypt, Jordan – to create a stability in the Middle East that has been something that the world has longed for for decades, you might argue centuries; for an awfully long time. A set of countries that are largely likeminded; we all know they have their challenges and their conflicts, they think about parts of their portfolio differently, but there’s an enormous amount of overlap as well.

And so one of the pillars is the economic pillar, where they’ll compete, right. They’ll sell their product, their gas from Qatar, the oil from Saudi Arabia. Wherever it may be, they’ll go compete. But there are lots of places where they can work together. And so if you combine economic understandings, diplomatic understandings, military understandings, each of these pillars, we think there’s a way to build an alliance that we have not seen there before. It’ll take us a bit, it won’t be straightforward, it’ll be bumpy. But we think there are a set of common threats that are different than at any time in recent history that provides an opportunity to get these folks to come together.

It will work alongside other institutions in the Gulf – OPEC, the GCC, all of these other institutions that exist and predate what we’re trying to do with MESA. We don’t think this drives them out, but we think it provides another forum, another place for these countries to work together, most importantly on pure national security issues.

MR YERGIN: Right, so this is something that will evolve over the next months or --

SECRETARY POMPEO: So we – fits and starts along the different pillars, but we do hope over the next several months we make a big step and get pieces of this reduced to paper, where countries can provide their input, respond, and we can be thoughtful about how to approach it so that perhaps by the end of the year, we’ve made substantial progress.

MR YERGIN: Well, you do bring unique perspective to energy questions having been in the industry, and at the same time now, where you sit in your responsibilities. And if you think broadly about the role of private sector, government working together, each of them contributing to energy security, prosperity, how do you see that balance?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Tell me what you’re thinking, Dan. What do you mean?

MR YERGIN: Well, the role of each, what do you expect from the private sector in terms of – and the nature of the cooperation.

SECRETARY POMPEO: So for those of you out there that need a lathe operator, I’m the first Secretary of State that can actually run a lathe, so if this whole diplomatic thing falls through, I’m ready to get back at it. The truth of the matter is the most stable places in the world are ones that have deep economic relationships with the United States of America. What – my expectation for you is that you will go out and try and crush it every day, and create wealth for your shareholders, great opportunities for your employees, that you’ll go build your business successfully not only here in the United States, but you’ll do it all across the world as well. Our task is here, domestically, not my portfolio, but to create a set of rules for capital formation, and a regulatory environment in which you can grow and prosper. And then my task is to make sure you’ve got every opportunity to go compete.

I – of all the challenges – I laid out half a dozen maybe there, Dan, in the remarks. I could have gone on to another half a dozen pretty readily. I don’t think anyone should ever bet against the United States of America. I am convinced that if diplomatically and through using the American force for good in the world, if we get you out there and get you a chance to compete, you’ll do fantastic, you’ll excel. I remind my team – and this is a bit of a discourse, but I think it’s – when I remind my team all the time, our presence matters. People not only see what we’re doing diplomatically, the things we’re asking of these countries to do, sometimes for themselves, sometimes for our mutual interests, but they watch how we behave. We treat each other with respect. We understand the rule of law. We have court systems that are functional and work. We work hard; we tell the truth. These fundamental things that happen when American companies show up, other countries see. And so whatever the value proposition that they’re evaluating, you should know that the fact that this traditional set of liberty, freedom, and a willingness to work hard matters in a lot of these places as well, and I think America will benefit from that a long time. And so if I were betting, I’d bet on us.

MR YERGIN: Right. Well, Mr. Secretary, your message is not only to the Americans in the audience but there are about 75 other countries here, and I think it’s an important message to both sets of people about the nature of the partnership and the division that you’ve outlined. So we thank you very much for coming to join us this evening and sharing this view of energy and U.S. foreign policy and what’s ahead. So thank you very much.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you, Dan. Thank you all very much. Thank you. (Applause.)

APA MAKNA DUIT

90 JUTA RINGGIT

Heboh. Heboh. Satu dunia heboh. Dari Ruslia ke Russia. Dari Pananti ke Paris.  Dari Mantin ke Madrid. Dari Langkap ke London. Satu dunia berkesah tentang bagaimana Najib telah berjaya melakukan rompakan terbesar dalam sejarah alam ini.

Sebanyak 66  akhbar dan  majalah dalam dunia ini telah melaporkan rompakan  yang dilakukan oleh Najib. Ini belum diambil kira puluhan stesen tv  dimerata pelusuk dunia yang merebakkan berita yang sama.

Semenjak keluarnya  ayat  - kun fi ya kun - semenjak ‘big bang’ hanya Najib seorang yang telah  berjaya diwartakan sebagai   pencuri terbesar dalam alam semesta ini. Dari bintang Marikh hingga  ke Pluto pencurian duit  yang dilakukan oleh Najib  tidak ada tandingan. 

Dalam sejarah tamadun manusia semenjak Nabi Adam  - Najib, Rosmah, Jho Low , Riza dan kuncu-kuncu  telah berjaya  melakukan  penipuan  yang paling besar.

Ingat kembali bagaimana warga  Tunisia bangun memberontak dan memulakan ‘Arab Spring ‘ pada bulan Januari  2011. Leila Trabelsi isteri  Zainal Abidin Ben Ali bekas Presiden Tunisia hanya sempat membawa lari  1.5 tan jongkong  emas milik Bank Negara Tunisia ke Saudi Arabia. 

Pada tahun 1986  Presiden Marcos lari meninggalkan Manila. Isteri Marcos,  Imelda tertinggal  1,220 pasang kasut dalam Istana Presiden.

Kalikan dengan sejuta  rompakan Leila, kalikan dengan sejuta  harga  kasut  Imelda. Bandingkan dengan jumlah rompakan Rosmah - jawabnya - rompakan Rosmah masih terbesar.

Tetiba satu Malaysia heboh dengan 90 juta ringgit. Duit 90 juta ini dikatakan telah diambil oleh Parti Islam Pas dari Najib. Si Najib pemberi dan Parti Islam penerima.

Duit 90 juta ringgit ini duit  apa? Berapa buah beg tangan Birkin yang sanggup dibeli oleh duit sebanyak ini? Duit 90juta ini tidak berkeupayan untuk membayar  harga  kalong berlian merah jambu milik Rosmah. Duit 90juta ini hanyalah duit sen berbanding dengan jumlah wang tunai  yang ditemui dalam kondo milik Rosmah dan Najib di Pavallion Bukit Bintang. 

Tetapi kenapa duit 90juta ini menjadi Pak Heboh? Kenapa agaknya duit seramai taik gigi Rosmah ini heboh  diangkut ke hulu ke hilir?

Heboh  yang menghebohkan. Lebih heboh dari dokumentri Micheal Jackson - Leaving Neverland keluaran HBO. Heboh yang lebih heboh dari Jom Heboh.

Jawabnya senang sahaja. Jawabnya Islam.

Kenapa Islam. Apa kena mengena duit ini dengan Islam. Sabar karo.

Duit 90 juta ini diambil oleh pemimpin Parti Islam Pas. Nama  parti politik yang pemimpinya mengambil duit itu ialah Parti Islam Se Malaysia. Ada perkataan Islam dalam nama parti ini. 

Dalam perlembagaan  parti ini Islam menjadi rujukan. Islam cita-cita dan niat parti ini. Dalam istilah  politk moden Islam ialah idealoji parti ini.

Islam ialah agama yang mengajukan manusia untuk membuat kebaikkan. Sama saperti agama-agama  lain dalam dunia ni agama Islam juga menentang kejahatan dan kezaliman.  Ini menjadi tunggak agama. Ini menjadi asas pejuangan.

Islam melaungkan  amal makruf nahi mungkar. Melarang umat manusia  membuat kejahatan. Mengajukan manusia membuat kebaikkan. Ertinya menentang semua bentuk kejahatan. Menentang penipuan. Menentang rasuah.

Ajaran agama Islam ini menjadi tiang agenda Parti Islam Pas. Malah Parti Islam ini selalu ke hulu ke hilir  berceramah menghebohkan slogan - amal makruf nahi mungkar. 

Kalau ini yang dilakukan oleh Parti Islam Pas apa pula silapnya.

Silapnya ialah cakap tak serupa Birkin.

Silapnya ialah Parti Islam Pas ini telah melanggar akidah dan cita-cita perjuangan Islam.  Heboh 90juta ringgit bukan kerana jumlah duit. Bukan kerana salah masuk bank. Tetapi kerana mengambil  duit dari Najib.

Kenapa terima duit dari Najib salah? 

Menerima duit dari Najib ini  sama saperti memasukkan seketul daging babi ke dalam sekawah gulai daging lembu. Ini bukan lawak Hishamuddin Rais. Ini Amanat Haji Hadi yang keluar pada 7 April 1981.

Najib telah mencuri duit dari dana 1MDB. Kemudian Najib memberikan 90 juta ringgit dari duit curi  kepada  pemimpin Parti Islam Pas. Panggilah apa sahaja - duit sedekah ke - duit amal jariah ke - duit faraid ke - semua ini tidak akan menutup fakta bahawa duit 90 juta itu adalah duit samun. 

Najib menyamun dan mencuri duit dari dari 1MDB. Sebahagian dari duit curi ini diberikan kepada beberapa orang pemimpin Parti Islam Pas. Kunci ayat ialah pemimpin Parti Islam Pas.

Ini bukan lebong  Hishamudidn Rais. Pekara beberapa orang pemimpin Parti Islam Pas mengambil duit dari Najib ini telah diakui oleh Nik Abduh anak lelaki kepada arwah Tok Guru Nik Aziz. 

Malah dalam satu pita rakamam   Nik Abduh pemimpin muda dari Parti Islam ini   dengan bangga dan berterus terang telah menerangkan bahawa ayahanda arwah Tok Guru Nik Aziz juga pernah  menerima duit dari  United Malays National Organsiation.

Mencuri dan menyamun dilarang oleh  Islam. Najib mencuri dan menyamun. Duit hasil samun diberi kepada beberapa  orang pemimpin Parti Islam Pas. Ini maknanya  Parti islam Pas tersubahat atau bersubahat.  Ter atau ber membawa makna yang sama. Amin.

Jadi bagaimana keadan sekarang?

Mao Zedong pernah berkata ‘ yang buruk pun boleh membawa kebaikkan …taik binatang ada baiknya…boleh buat baja..’ 

‘ Elementry my dear Watson… pekara ini senang saja wahai sayangku Watson…’  Ini kata-kata Sherlock Holmes kepada pembantunya Watson yang lurus bendul. 

Hishamuddin  Rais pula berkata ‘… mustahil hang tak faham…’

Pekara duit 90 juta ini senang difahami. Pekara buruk yang dilakukan oleh pemimpinj Parti Islam Pas  boleh  juga dimanafaatkan untuk kebaikkan anak semua bangsa.
Pada tahun 2018 -2019 watak asli Parti Islam Pas ini terlah terlondeh. Telah terbonggeng. Terbukti bahawa Parti Islam Pas  ini sama saperti parti politik lain.  Sama maknanya - boleh menerima duit sogokan. Bersedia menerima wang pelincir. Sanggup bercakap bohong asalkan dapat duit. 

Parti Islam ini juga cekap dan bijak mengeluarkan ayat-ayat suci dan hadis dan sirah Nabi untuk menghalalkan perbuatan jahat.

Hakikatnya Parti Islam Pas ini adalah parti politik. Sama saperti Parti United Malays National Organisation. Sama saperti BERSATU. Sama saperti AMANAH. Sama saperti Malaysian Indian Congress. Sama saperti Parti Keadilan Rkayat. Tidak ada bezanya.

Cuma Parti Islam Pas menggunakan topeng Islam untuk mencari kuasa. Untuk membeli kereta Audi atau VellFire. Opps… Apa ini?

Sayugia dimaklumkan disini apa yang dilakukan oleh Parti Islam SeMalaysia ini bukan satu yang baru. Menggunakan topeng agama bukan satu yang pelik dan bukan hanya berlaku di Malaysia sahaja.

Di Eropah pada satu ketika dahulu jika Putera Raja atau Count atau Tuan Tanah membuat kejahatan - membunuh, merogol atau merampas pasir  dan merampas  tanah -  mereka masih boleh masuk syurga.  Mereka akan diampunkan, dosa  akan dilupus jika sanggup membayar pampasan ketul dan jongkong  emas kepada Gereja di Rom.

Ketika itu kunci syurga dan neraka dimiliki oleh Pope di Vatican. Pope boleh ‘online’ dengan Tuhan bila-bila masa sahaja.

Hakikatnya - menjual agama ini adalah satu perniagaan yang paling lumayan dalam masyarakat  kolot. Dalam masyarakat yang percaya kepada pekara karut marut. Percaya kepada tahyul dan toyol.

Justeru dari fakta sejarah  terbukti ada persekongkolan kelas  Feudal, kelas  Tuan Tanah  dengan kelas Agamawan. Tiga kumpulan ini berkerjasama untuk menipu orang ramai.

Justeru dalam Revolusi Peranchis  (1789-1799) apabila orang ramai mendapat pencerahan maka kepala Paderi , kepala Raja dan kepala Tuan Tanah  semuanya dipenggal. Khalas.

Parti Islam Pas telah bekerjasama dengan United Malays National Organisation. Ini fakta bukan lebong.  Parti Ketuanan Melayu ini menyamun , mencuri dan menipu Bani Melayu. Manakala  Parti Islam Pas akan membacakan doa selamat.  Sambil menakut-nakutkan dan mengelapkan fikrah  Bani Melayu agar tunduk menyembah pemerentah Melayu Islam. 

Pemimpin Parti Islam Pas ini memakai jubah ala Tok Arab. Memasang janggut dan berkopiah. Terselit dalam kopiah ialah  kunci motosikal BMW. Dalam kocek jubah ada kunci kereta Audi.

Umum dan  anak semua bangsa wajib disedarkan bahawa para politikus dari Parti Islam ini tidak ada bezanya dari para politkus dari parti-parti lain yang wujud di Malaysia.

Mereka menyamar sebagai Tok Lebai. Menyamar sebagai Tok Guru atau Alim Ulama. Tetapi hakikat mereka adalah politikus.  

Amal makruf dan nahi mungkar keluar dari mulut Pak Lebai  sebelum dapat membeli Mini Cooper. Sesudah mendapat VellFire akan keluar alhamdulillah.

Bayangkan kegilaan para pemimpin Parti Islam ini. Dilaporkan bahawa Mursidul Am Parti Islam ini memiliki kereta Porche… kah kah kah.

Paling lawak rupa-rupanya ramai  pemimpin Parti Islam Pas suka  berbini-bini. Cerita berbini-bini ini terbongeng tular di media sosial apabila ada seorang bini pemimpin Parti Islam Pas  yang baru mendapat kereta Audi7 sebagai hadiah pelok cium cinta kaseh sayang. Entah bini keberapa tapi yang saheh ialah bini muda yang masih ketat dan sendat. Kah kah kah.

Kes duit 90 juta ini sabenarnya adalah rahmat untuk anak semua bangsa di Malaysia. Duit 90 juta ini juga adalah kuliah politik untuk membuka mata Bani Melayu agar sedar apa itu penjual agama. Dan apa itu Parti Islam SeMalaysia..

Jangan ketawa apabila  membaca berita lawak seram tentang beberapa akaun bank pemimpin Parti Isam Pas telah dibekukan. Jangan  terbarai ketawa terbahak-bahak apabila membaca  bagaimana SPRM telah mensita beberapa buah kereta mewah,  motosikal mewah, rumah banglow berjuta ringgit dari beberapa orang pemimpin parti Islam Pas.

Anak semua bangsa - bangsa semua agama - masanya telah tiba untuk kita melihat dan membaca Parti Islam Pas tidak ada sangkut paut dengan agama. Nama Islam hanya topeng untuk menjual agama.

Jangan lagi kita terima…  Ana tau Ana tau… Ente tak tahu. ..Ente unte. Menggunakan  bahasa Arab dan jubah Arab ini hanya topeng untuk menipu. Duit 90 juta melondehkan semua. (TT)

Reporters and diplomats barred from attending court as around 10 women appear

Several Saudi Arabian women’s rights activists stood trial on Wednesday for the first time since a group of them were detained last year in a case that has intensified scrutiny of the kingdom’s human rights record after the murder of a prominent journalist.

Loujain al-Hathloul, Aziza al-Yousef, Eman al-Nafjan and Hatoon Al-Fassi were among around 10 women appearing before the criminal court in the capital, Riyadh, where charges would be presented against them, court president Ibrahim al Sayari said.

          Longest US-Taliban peace talks see 'progress' in Qatar       Cache   Translate Page      

The longest peace talks between the US and the Taliban to end America's 17-year war in Afghanistan concluded Tuesday night in Qatar, with both sides saying progress had been made.

The nearly two weeks of talks produced two draft agreements between the militants and the U.S. government on a “withdrawal timeline and effective counterterrorism measures,” American envoy Zalmay Khalilzad wrote on Twitter.

The diplomat said he'd go to Washington and meet with other concerned parties, likely including the Afghan government, which did not take part in the 13 days of face-to-face talks in Doha, the Qatari capital.

“The conditions for #peace have improved,” Zalmay wrote. “It's clear all sides want to end the war. Despite ups and downs, we kept things on track and made real strides.”

The Taliban issued their own statement, similarly saying “progress was achieved” on both of those issues. It stressed no cease-fire deal had been reached, nor any agreement for it to speak to the Afghan government.

“For now, both sides will deliberate over the achieved progress, share it with their respective leaderships and prepare for the upcoming meeting, the date of which shall be set by both negotiation teams,” the statement read.

It wasn't immediately clear when the next round of talks would begin.

A Taliban official at the talks, who earlier spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity as he was unauthorised to reveal details of the negotiations publicly, said the main sticking point remained when US forces would withdraw. The Taliban want a withdrawal within three to five months, while the US is saying it will take 18 months to two years, he said.

Another sticking point would be a demand from America that the Taliban guarantee Afghanistan would never again host militants that would launch an attack against it. The Taliban have said it can agree to a general promise, but remains unwilling to identify specific groups in its pledge.

Osama bin Laden's successor in Al Qaeda, Ayman al Zawahri, is believed to be hiding in Afghanistan. Scores of other militants from Arab countries, including Yemen and Saudi Arabia, are also believed to be living in Afghanistan.

The Taliban, who refuse to talk with the government in Kabul and describe it as a US puppet, have long demanded direct talks with the US but until Khalilzad's appointment last September, Washington had shied away from opening face-to-face negotiations.

The Taliban, who had harboured Al Qaeda and its leader, bin Laden, ruled Afghanistan before US forces invaded in October 2001, following the 9/11 attacks. The Taliban have made a major comeback in recent years, and today carry out near-daily attacks on Afghan security forces. That has made a peace process even more pressing and President Donald Trump has expressed frustration at the protracted conflict.

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said Pakistan has helped push the peace talks, which in turn has helped Islamabad's long-troubled relationship with Washington.

Earlier on Tuesday, Qureshi similarly spoke about the progress being made at the talks.

“Pakistan has encouraged all factions within Afghanistan to sit together and have a meaningful intra-Afghan dialogue,” he said alongside German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas.

The talks have taken place at one of the most luxurious resorts in Qatar, a tiny, energy-rich country that sticks out like a thumb into the Persian Gulf. A glamorous female pianist playing everything from Chopin to Mariah Carey provided a soundtrack to the journalists loitering around the hotel, straining to get any information about the closed-door talks.

The surrealism extended just outside of the doors leading to the talks, where bikini-clad sunbathers by the pool drank alcohol. Mullah Baradar, the co-founder of Taliban, walked in and out of meetings accompanied by his son and Qatari security.

Passing tourists expressed surprise when journalists identified the men walking past in traditional Afghan waist coats, rounded chitrali caps and turbans that had suddenly become part of their vacation.

          The U.S. is on track to become the world's top oil exporter by 2024      Cache   Translate Page      

The U.S. has taken the global oil market by storm — becoming the world's largest oil producer in 2018 and on track to surpass Russia and perhaps even Saudi Arabia to become the world's top exporter by 2024.

Why it matters: Thanks to the end of a 40-year-old crude oil export ban signed by President Obama, a shale boom and a host of geopolitical sea changes, the U.S. is poised to reshape the global oil market over the next 10 years and beyond.


The International Energy Agency (IEA) expects the U.S. to account for 70% of the increase in global production capacity in the next 5 years.

  • "Inevitably, the status quo will change," Neil Atkinson, oil markets division head at IEA, tells Axios.
  • "The U.S. is becoming a big player in global oil markets, and it will become a net exporter of oil on average for 2021 for the first time in 75 years. This is a good thing for markets as it adds to consumer choice and flexibility and helps to improve global oil security."

What's happening: The U.S. is exploiting its natural advantages. The type of oil found in the U.S. is lighter and sweeter (contains less sulfur) than oil from other major producers like Canada, Venezuela and Iran. U.S. shale also allows eager investors to get oil fields online quickly rather than taking multiple years to develop.

That's leading investors to push more money towards shale projects, Michael Tran, managing director of global energy strategy at RBC Capital Markets, tells Axios.

  • "As a result what we believe you're on track for is a timeframe where the barrels that are coming to market are becoming lighter and sweeter and ... heavy, sour barrels are becoming increasingly constrained."

Global dynamics also are strongly in the U.S.'s favor.

First, U.S.-led sanctions on Venezuela combined with its state-oil company's slow collapse will see the country with the world's largest oil reserves reduce its already marginalized capacity by almost half over the next year.

  • Iran's production capacity is expected to fall by 1.2 million barrels per day and Nigeria is facing homegrown oil market woes.

Second, the UN's International Maritime Organization next year will bar ships from carrying fuel that contains sulfur content higher than 0.5% and cap their sulfur emissions, benefiting light, sweet crude.

  • Maritime shipping accounts for about 4%–5% of the oil market's 100-million-barrel-per-day total.

Third, developing countries like China, which are driving new demand for crude exports, also are likely to move more toward light, sweet crude as their populations rely less on generators and heating oil, and as construction spending slows down, reducing the need for asphalt — all of which rely on heavy crude oil.

The bottom line: Both market forces and international regulations are pushing global demand towards exactly what the U.S. is selling. Given the booming supply of U.S. oil, that likely means a cap on prices.

U.S. Senate to vote Wednesday on Saudi Yemen war resolutionThe U.S. Senate will vote on Wednesday on a resolution to end Washington's support for the Saudi Arabia-led military campaign in Yemen, as lawmakers push President Donald Trump to toughen his policy toward the kingdom. Announcing the vote on Tuesday, Senator Bernie Sanders called the war "a humanitarian and strategic disaster." Sanders, an independent who is running for president as a Democrat, is a lead co-sponsor of the resolution along with Republican Senator Mike Lee. The vote on the war powers resolution will be the second within four months in the Senate.



          Pressure mounts on FAA as more countries ground or ban the Boeing 737 MAX 8      Cache   Translate Page      

aapsky/iStock(WASHINGTON) -- As more countries and airlines around the world grounded the Boeing 737 MAX 8 or banned the plane from their airspace Tuesday, pressure was growing on the Federal Aviation Administration to take similar action in the United States.

Tuesday evening, acting Federal Aviation Administration Administrator Daniel Elwell said in a statement that the agency continues to extensively review all available data and aggregate safety performance information from operators and pilots, but that, "Thus far, our review shows no systemic performance issues and provides no basis to order grounding the aircraft."

Adding to that pressure was uncertainty over how -- and how soon -- critical questions might be answered about what might have caused Sunday's crash of the Ethiopian Airlines 737 MAX 8 that killed 157 people just six minutes after takeoff.

"In the course of our urgent review of data on the Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crash, if any issues affecting the continued air-worthiness of the aircraft are identified, the FAA will take immediate and appropriate action," Elwell's statement concluded.

It was still unclear Tuesday how Ethiopia would handle retrieval of data from the "black boxes" recovered from the wreckage -- the flight data and cockpit voice recorders -- including whether it would ask for help from the U.S. or other countries with more sophisticated labs, Ethiopia's lead investigator told ABC News.

Investigators said they would spend at least the next two to three days at the crash site before beginning the process of getting the data recorders analyzed, the country's lead investigator, Amedey Fanta, told ABC News' Chief National Correspondent Matt Gutman at the scene outside Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa.

The European Union Aviation Safety Agency, which often works in tandem with the FAA, announced Tuesday it was suspending all Boeing 737 MAX 8 and MAX 9 (a longer version) operations in Europe -- "taking every step necessary to ensure the safety of passengers."

Because of the uncertainty, the UK Civil Aviation Authority, announced Tuesday that it, too, was banning the 737 MAX 8 from its airspace.

"The UK Civil Aviation Authority has been closely monitoring the situation, however, as we do not currently have sufficient information from the flight data recorder we have, as a precautionary measure, issued instructions to stop any commercial passenger flights from any operator arriving, departing or overflying UK airspace," a statement said.

"The UK Civil Aviation Authority's safety directive will be in place until further notice. We remain in close contact with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and industry regulators globally," the statement continued.

A key question is whether the plane's advanced flight management system -- the autopilot -- might have played a role in the most recent crash as it did in the fatal crash of an Indonesian Airlines 737 MAX 8 last October, In that crash, it appears the pilots failed to disengage the autopilot when the plane's nose began pitching up and down, perhaps because they were unaware of how to do so.

Both planes experienced similar pitch problems right after takeoff.

President Donald Trump spoke by phone with Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg Tuesday, White House spokesman Judd Deere confirmed, but he released no other details other than to say "we are continuing to monitor the situation."

On Tuesday evening, Boeing confirmed the conversation to ABC News and said that Muilenburg reiterated to the president "our position that the MAX aircraft is safe."

Trump weighed in earlier Tuesday, tweeting that today's jetliners were getting dangerously complex -- that "I don't want Albert Einstein to be my pilot" -- and that pilots must be able to "easily and quickly take control of a plane."

 Asked on the Fox News program "Outnumbered" why the president has not ordered the FAA to ground the aircraft, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said, "it's early in the process."

She said the White House will be “constant contact through the Department of Transportation, the FAA, to make determinations at the appropriate time.”

In the face of the growing international pressure, Boeing put out an updated statement Tuesday.

"Safety is Boeing’s number one priority and we have full confidence in the safety of the MAX," the statement said. "We understand that regulatory agencies and customers have made decisions that they believe are most appropriate for their home markets. We’ll continue to engage with all of them to ensure they have the information they need to confidently operate their fleets or return them to service.

 "It is also important to note that the Federal Aviation Administration is not mandating any further action at this time, and based on the information currently available, we do not have any basis to issue new guidance to operators," the Boeing statement said.

But while Boeing, the FAA and U.S. carriers that operate 72 of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes -- Southwest, American and United -- were standing by the safety of the aircraft, political pressure was rising in Washington.

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, who is running for president, urged the FAA to follow the lead of other countries and "immediately ground this plane in the United States until its safety can be assured."

Because the FAA has not yet ruled one way or the other, the agency should "air on the side of protecting the flying public until you know for sure what happened," Warren said on ABC News Live's "The Briefing Room" Tuesday afternoon.

In her statement on the issue Tuesday morning, Warren also called out the Trump administration's previous attempts to protect an ongoing Boeing arms deal with Saudi Arabia by not denouncing the country's government, which was accused of murdering Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi in 2018.

Pressed if she believed the FAA or Trump administration was protecting Boeing, Warren said, "That's sure what we watched last time."

"For me. I just want to be sure this is not about protecting Boeing's profits, this is about protecting the people who get on those airplanes and count on the fact that they're going to be safe," Warren said on "The Briefing Room."

“Until the cause of the crash is known and it’s clear that similar risks aren’t present in the domestic fleet, I believe all Boeing 737 Max 8 series aircraft operating in the United States should be temporarily grounded,” Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat from California, wrote in a letter to the FAA Monday.

Several countries have already taken “this important step,” Feinstein said.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Democrat from Connecticut who sits on the Senate committee that oversees U.S. aviation, echoed Feinstein’s call and said he was encouraging his own family and friends to avoid the planes.

"The 737 MAX 8 should be immediately grounded until the FAA can assure us they are safe,” Blumenthal told reporters on Capitol Hill Tuesday. "I’m advising members of my own family and friends they ought to change planes, change flights, change airlines, whatever they need to do to avoid these 737 Max 8s until they are proven safe -- which right now is very much in doubt."

Blumenthal also urged all airlines to completely waive flight change fees.

Republican Sen. John Thune of South Dakota, who sits on the same Senate committee, said -- "like probably everybody else" -- he would also feel safer "flying some other airplane at the moment." Fellow Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah called for the FAA to ground the aircraft "out of an abundance of caution, and frankly common sense."

House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Peter DeFazio stopped short of asking the FAA to ground the 737 MAX 8 aircraft, but increased pressure on the FAA Tuesday, calling on its leading safety experts to "do what is necessary in a timely manner to provide certainty to the flying public that the nation's aviation system remains exceptionally safe," he said in a statement.

“I remain concerned that international aviation regulators are providing more certainty to the flying public by grounding the 737 MAX 8 than our own FAA – the world leader in aviation safety,” DeFazio, a Democrat from Oregon, said.

Meanwhile, the Association of Professional Flight Attendants, a union that represents flight attendants who work for American Airlines, directly urged the airline's CEO Doug Parker to ground the planes pending the results of the investigation and said flight attendants would not be forced to fly if they felt unsafe.

"While we cannot draw premature conclusions, it is critical to work with manufacturers, regulators and airlines to take steps to address our important safety concerns," said APFA's National President Lori Bassani in a statement calling on Parker.

The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, which represents United employees, said crew and passengers “are expressing concern about the 737 Max 8.”

“It is vitally important that U.S. airlines work with Boeing, the FAA, and the NTSB to address concerns and take steps to ensure confidence for the traveling public and working crews," said AFA-CWA President Sara Nelson.

At least one pilot's union -- the Southwest Airlines Pilots Association -- came out in support of its airline's decision to keep flying the planes. The union is “extremely confident that our entire fleet, including the MAX, is safe based on the facts, intelligence, data and information we presently have,” the group's president, Capt. Jon Weaks, said in a statement.

About one-third of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 jets around the world were grounded as of Tuesday morning.

On Monday, Ethiopian Airlines, the flag carrier of the East African nation, grounded its remaining Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft "until further notice." Also on Monday, China grounded its 96 jets and Indonesia temporarily grounded its Boeing 737 MAX 8 fleet as well. The United Kingdom joined the growing list and grounded its five jets on Tuesday morning.

Singapore has indefinitely banned all Boeing 737 MAX aircraft from flying into and out of the country, as has Australia, Malaysia, Oman and Ireland, as of Tuesday afternoon. None of the countries fly the model themselves.

Airlines in other countries also have announced the grounding of Boeing 737 MAX 8 fleets, including Cayman Airways, South Africa-based airline Comair, Aeromexico, Aerolineas Argentinas, Brazil's largest airline Gol, Morocco's national carrier Royal Air Maroc and South Korean airline Eastar Jet.

          2/9/18 MAKING KUCHING TRULY THE CITY OF BORNEO .....exploring on New GOM-GOS working framework.      Cache   Translate Page      
Worldwide, especially with the hungry Chinese and not wanting to be left India (later Brazil), in the next 5-10 years the world economic development will be very interesting to observe. The West due to their Capitalism Hunger is rampaging the oil rich Middle East and North Africa. Despite so, UAE with Dubai as its pillar is pulling away from the traditional Arabs norms and now is among the most busiest and prosperous trading place on earth. Accordingly, Istanbul due to the American hegemony actions may do better with the help of Russia and Iran (and possible China) and thus may reshape the future role and position of the America and the West. Nonetheless right here at home, due to prolong greed in our governing system, Malaysia as a whole and Sarawak in particular, is in great financial distress that warrant us to be much strategic and bold in our action. Herewith, I'm proposing something that we can look at as potential means to take us out of such distress and as well as to position ourselves better in this 21st century regional economic regatta. How could Sarawak; Kuching in particular can help to raise the whole Borneo, to the extend by 2050, Borneo collectively will turn to be the next World Economic Power. Let start with a vision of making Kuching the City of Borneo.

(2) The key economic issue facing Sarawak that I foresee now is that our economy may be moving to diminishing if not stagnation or digressing.  Sarawak all these while had been resources-based economic driven. Unfortunately the global demand over our resources is either moving to stagnation or down dwindling. Timber, oil palm, rubber, pepper and petroleum production, demand and pricing are no more to our advantage. Worst, Sarawak had not work hard enough to restructure her economic base to the form that keep her to a fore running position. We had not been smart and daring enough to push our economy in the forefront of others. Since 1960s to this end, we are still keeping to the traditional harvesting the natural economic endowment. We had not graduated beyond nature based economy. In this article, I'm focusing onto making Kuching urban setting to be internationalized as a meant to nurture healthy living of her population and Sarawak economic growth vis-a-vis all other regional development proposals that I had earlier written which among them are:  (1) http://abchek.blogspot.com/2009/06/5609-sarawak-economic-development-model.html?m=1 (2) http://abchek.blogspot.com/2016/09/1916-let-work-on-basin-based-devt-thats.html?m=1 (3) http://abchek.blogspot.com/2010/05/8510-model-ekonomi-desa-med.html?m=1 (4) http://abchek.blogspot.com/2017/09/2917-sarawak-digital-economy.html?m=1

(3) If the Bible (not clearly said in the case of the  Al Quran) narrative of the descendant of Eve and Adam was correct, one would wonder why did Allah sent Eve to Becca while Adam to India. Adam to India be it in Ceylon or Himalaya, such places were with better endowment as compared to Becca of the Arabia. I'll skip my speculation over the reason for the place(s) of descending of Adam, but let have a look at Becca the place of landing for Eve. Definitely, there are many perspectives for such choice by Allah. But in the case of Becca, let me try to lead readers to just one aspect of probably the numerous perspectives that we could explore. We can't exactly say, when did Adam and Eve descent to earth. Probably hundreds of thousands if not millions of years before. Even 1,400 years ago, there was nothing in Becca as compared to today Human Civilization Standard. Becca even 1,400 years ago was just barren desert with pockets of oasis. Eve, upon her landing, she might had been placed among those cavity-hills with the oasis for her basic survival needs. My such presumption is based on  an inferring to the lives of Hajar and Ismael upon their seclusion in Mecca by Abraham. Saie, which being said was the wandering of Hajar between Mt Marwan and Saffa,  I would believe must be the nature that happened to Eve at time of her isolation. She must had been made to wander just as Saie of Hajar before the coming of Adam. As Allah saying "Nothing that He did is without reason" thus my strongest predicament of the Hajar-Ismael fate in Abraham family squabble is an inference for His mahluk of all times. Thus for the case of Eve, then followed by Hajar-Ismael, why did Allah chosen Becca as their place of "exile"? Why did Adam and thus Abraham had a better place of "stay" as compared to their spouses?

(4) Eve and Hajar were the great mothers' of the mankind. Why indeed, the "harsh" treatment were imposed upon them, as compared to their men? Why not in the first place, Adam and Eve be landing together at the same place, say in the comfortable Mediterranean. Accordingly, why did Abraham need to send Hajar and Ismael to Mecca (Becca), a faraway place from Palestine where he and Sarah-Jacob were residing. Can't he just kept them in the nearby neighborhood? What indeed Allah signaling over all these for the good of mankind?

(5) In particular, what do all these have to do with Kuching and more important to transform Kuching into the Truly City of Borneo (CoB)? Firstly, I want to suggest the solution on how to make our economy to be better through urban development. Urbanize development is a must to take ourselves to a better state of being. Urbanize development has always been the better economic of scale for agglomeration of most of the human needs. If one cares, one could follow such wisdom of Allah through His creation of the olden days civilization be it in Nile, Euphrates, Ganges and Yang Tze. Old days Civilization started from the rivers (water). The original Sarawak and later Kuching, it started with the Sarawak river. For such reasons, for Sarawak, I'm focusing to Kuching as the potential for a conceptual better urban development. As per today, our economy is in distress. There seem to be some form of stagnation is happening. Structurally, we are coming to the Zero Sum Game of the economy. We seem to be meeting our economic plateau point by reason there are sectors that is cancelling the positive effect of the others. Definitely growth is there, but not really a healthy prospering growth to all. Unemployment among our graduates is high and even if they are employed, their salary doesn't commensurate with their academic qualification. The same applies to the rest of the population. People are unable to cope with the ever rising cost of living due to faster rising of cost of living as compared to net income growth.  Even if we look into the whole of Borneo, the third largest island in the world after Greenland and Papua New Guinea, with huge natural resources, we are still in the state of the Lower Third World hierarchy. Thus as I had said many times, we must take serious note or lesson from how Allah manage things as a clue to resolve our problem and improve ourselves. So much so, the best city development progression and purposes should emulate from His design and rationales.  Thus, I'm looking at Kuching vis-a-vis Mecca in my city development model thinking process. As Muslim, it is very ignorance if one can't see the beauty of Allah "wisdom's" in all of His creations. He placed Kaaba in Mecca and definitely by virtue of Mecca landscapes, He must be having great "wisdom" on how Mecca will evolve into a prosperous and harmonious city place that people could emulate all over despite its barren and isolated nature.

(6) Kuching comparatively to the early Mecca, there is nothing much there. Mecca was barren desert, and Kuching was peat and mangrove mudflat. Naturally both were barren places. One was with the least water endowment, while the later having too much. Secondly, both were least populated. Third, both were well isolated. Nonetheless Allah designed for these places was beyond human comprehension. Indeed there were so many the none feasible factors for Mecca and Kuching to be developed as a city far more to say a Centripetal City Place. Therefore, taking all these into a basket, there is no hope that Kuching should grow into the City of Borneo (CoB). But my belief is otherwise, for as I said, and as repeated in the Al Quran many times: "Nothing is created by Allah without its merit", thus there is nothing that Kuching couldn't emulate Mecca of the past to Mecca of today. With Mecca, indeed Allah wisdom is, there is nothing impossible if  one is determine and having passion and patience. Mecca was built from the ruble of the Kaaba by both Abraham and Ismael. From barren ruble, Mecca turns to be the World Largest Multi-Islamic Cultural Holly City, and In Shaa Allah it will forever expanding and evolving. Thus, Kuching can be developed into the City of Borneo, a City of Truly Borneo despite of all its handicaps just as the early Mecca.

(7) To me, from the way Mecca had evolved, from desert to thematic Multi-national Islamic Cultural City, Kuching could as well emulate such strategic wisdom ie to be developed along a strategic international theme. For such, based on its nature therefore my best presumption, Kuching could and must be developed into the City of Borneo.

(8) At time of Eve, Mecca was a one-person-city place. Today, Mecca has a permanent population of 1.53 millions but with at least 30-35 million visitors annually and it is growing probably at the rate of 3-5 percents a year. As an overall, Saudi Arabia is having 28.61 million population (2018), which means even deriving from the Pilgrimages, Saudi indeed should never having any economic or income issues in making the kingdom a prosperous and harmonious place to stay and visit. Indeed today Mecca should be a Multi-National Islamic Cultural City. There is no other city world-wide having such an aura, not even the Vatican City of Rome. No any other religion is now embraced by almost all of the world ethnics population, except Islam. Mecca initially was a focal City for almost all of the Arabs, Persian, African  and even Turks ethnicity and cultures. Today, indeed Mecca (and Madinah) is a City of Islamic Multi-Cultural setting, if politic is discounted from the making of the Saudi Arabia in general and Mecca-Madinah specifically. BaitulMuqaddis was the City that once having the aura of today Mecca, but Allah had made the Muslims to turn away from BaitulMuqaddis. In today City Planning sense, indeed as the doa by Abraham, the man whom revived Mecca (Kaaba) from ruble, "Oo Allah make this City a place of prosperity and harmony for all humankind", and so should it be to this days. Unfortunately the Saud had not made Mecca into Multi-National Islamic Cultural and Spiritual City. Indeed apart from its Islamic theological Central, Mecca for its original isolation is indeed a strength that Allah want us to uncover.  I presume, Allah may want us to see how Muslims should realise His saying "In diversity, you should celebrate for in its you will get to know each others" which to me, He wants us to see how the celebration of diversity could lead to unity, prosperity and harmony through justice.

(9) Now I will address the notion of the City of Borneo. Why Kuching? Why not Kota Kinabalu, Pontianak, Palangkaria, Banjar Masin, Balik Papan, Bandar Sri Bangawan (BSB), etc? Well surely, I admit it is all about vision. We must have a vision to place ourselves above others without making others worst off. Better off if our vision is meant for the good of all. I believe Sarawak ie Kuching can do it, so let get moving. While we are on our path to prosperity and harmony, so the rest must also be granted as such. Justice must be honored. Indeed my view, by making Kuching as the City of Borneo, such will be giving the phenomena of high tide raise all boats. I believe, KalBar, KalSel, and KalTeng will benefit from the making of Kuching CoB. Even Brunei, Sabah and KalTim would have the trickling effect at the later stage.

(10) City of Borneo, to my definition is a City that having the multi-cultural Borneo taste. Kuching should be made a place where the Bornean and the world could celebrate the multi-cultural and creativity of Borneo. It is a City of Borneo convergence. People, cultures, products and many others of Borneo should be there in Kuching for the world to celebrate. This is a City that is built over passing religious, racial, political, cultural and values differences. This is a City that resembles and appreciate the celebration of Allah created Tropical diversity. The tropical is green and important to the world for its content and celebration of diversity. Kuching must go along the same path of development.

(11) Definitely a vision must be grounded with all the strong backup rationales. What indeed are the solid advantages of Kuching over the others? Firstly let have a look at all the Borneo major cities. Bandar Sri Bangawan is well secluded due to its enclave by Malaysia. Its inland bound is very limited. Kota Kinabalu is far to the North. Again its inland connectivity to the rest of Borneo is limiting, though its international access is equally as good if not better than Kuching. Pontianak, Banjar Masin, and Balik Papan are southern bound coastal cities of Kalimantan. Their international access is limited through Jakarta. They are having international distance connectivity disadvantages. Thus from the spatial perspective, Kuching has the better international frontage either by land, sea and even air. Indeed Kuching has greater access to Indochina and Far East for the hinterland people and products of Borneo. Kuching is having greater hinterland networks and thus is having greater access to all the rich Borneo hinterland endowment. In 5-10 years time, Kuching is commanding the Central Place for Borneo. Building on this advantage, In Shaa Allah will amke Kuching sustainably in the fore front of the others.

(12) I'm postulating. Kuching is just about 40 miles from the Equatorial Line. The Equatorial Line crosses right through Pontianak, such makes it the Borneo Equator City. Kuching is just 40 miles North of the Equatorial Line plus its location toward the South China Sea, thus sunlight, humidity cloud cover, and wind nature of Kuching I would say is much challenging as compared to any other cities of Borneo. I believe Kuching is facing much challenging climatic regimes as compare to the others. In the electromagnetic sense, such is much tougher to address say as compared to lesser climatic problematic areas. These natural climatic challenges, if properly over come, I would predict, Kuching will give Borneo the best solution over Digital Communication environment. I presume, locational advantages and over coming climatic "challenges" is the best advantage for Kuching to be Borneo Digital Hub. Such advantage, gives Kuching the best digital communique positioning among others. Kuching can be made the Digital Gateway for the whole of Borneo.

(13) Borneo is a multi-cultural and religious region. The diverse culture and resources of Borneo given rise to multi-talents and creativity. All these could be celebrated at one place entity for ease of marketing and achieving the economic of scale. Kuching could take central role for such purposes.

(14) Accordingly, over the past 50-60 years, Kuching apart from BSB has the most socio-political stability as compared to the rest of Borneo cities. The multi-ethnicity of Sarawak had molded Kuching into a peaceful and harmony Administrative and Industrial City. The social balanced had kept Kuching to its peaceful and harmonious charisma. Such socio-political harmony of Kuching gives her the best asset to traject higher and faster from the rest of Borneo.

(15) With Kuching present locality advantages as centre for resources, cultural agglomeration and ICT Gateway potentials couple by its peaceful and harmonious sphere, thus I have a strong belief that Kuching can organise itself to be, first the Entre Port of Borneo, second Health, Educational, Arts and Cultural City, thirdly Industrial City, and fourthly Information Gateway of Borneo. Thus my scope of City of Borneo for Kuching covers the areas of International Trade, Tourism, Manufacturing and ICT Hub.

(16) Definitely, my spatial definition of Kuching CoB is stretching beyond the present Kuching. Indeed I'm looking at the space from Tg Dato in Lundu to as far as Tg Manis in Sarikei. No doubt, the present Kuching will be the core for Kuching CoB. Sematan, Lundu, Bau, Serian, Simunjan, Pusa and Tg Manis, I'm postulating as the metropolitan of Kuching CoB. Sematan, Pusa and Tg Manis need to be part and parcel of Kuching CoB for they are having the strengths to enhance the Natural Tourism facets, Bulking Port facilities and Industrial specialization. Sematan in Lundu and Sambas of KalBar are having great tourism potentials that could be developed so as to provide the synergy and economic of scale. Sematan-Bako Coastline and Serikin-Bau Limestone Hinterland offer great tourism opportunities development to the eastern of Kuching. Particularly the Tg Pok-Sematan Bay; the sandy and mangrove nature mixed of the coastline, is unique tourism feature of its own virtue. Accordingly, the rich fishing ground of Singkawang to Sematan sea area is a best gift by Allah for seafood loving population of the East. Nature and food-based tourism could be well place for the advancement of this region. The limestone hinterland of Lundu-Bau would provide the added Nature and Adventure type of tourism experiences.

(17) With the emergence of China as a rich State so much so, almost all Indochinese states vis Thailand, Chambodia, and Vietnam and even the Philippines are crazy in capturing their tourism demand. The Chinese-tourism is now dominated by the emergence of the effluent communities, so much so their liking is more toward built-up and high dense tourism activities. I have a strong believe, over time all these will fade away and people will be going back to healthy-nature-based tourism. Indeed Sarawak should now wisely capitalize the turning away of other parts of tourism-liking from the traditional Indochinese. We could build tourism heaven away from the Chinese craziness and thus capturing our own niche market.

(18) Pusa and Tg Manis, if well connected to Nanga Badau and Tebedu, they could play the great Bulking Export Points and Processing for KalBar, KalTeng and KalSel produces. Both Pusa and Tg Manis could be turned into Food and Food-based Industrial Centers with raw material be drawn form Kalimantan and as well as from the locals. A Bulking facilities could be explored in Pusa, Betong. I can foresee, Pusa can be developed into the Oleo-Chemical Industrial Hub to cater for Sarawak Southern Region, KalBar and KalTeng palm oil production. Accordingly, through proper strategic international arrangement trade between Malaysia and Indonesia, I can foresee, similar treatment for the KalBar and KalTeng forest and bulk mining produces. Pusa and Tg Manis can be the Industrial Centers for KalBar, KalTeng and KalSel produces. With such bulks export facilities be placed out of Kuching, not only will ease heavy vehicles from entering Kuching but most important, expansion for the down stream effects of such business will be better facilitated. Cheaper land for various other related development would be easily available. For long term urban sustainable development and as well as to position ourselves better into the regional food and food-based industrial development, I strongly suggest both Pusa and Tg Manis plus all the potential new growth center be well developed along the concept of green tropical cities.

(19) I'm thinking that we should be brave enough to look a the Tebedu-Pusa-Lubok Antu-Tg Manis as new growth coridor. The land in this corridor should be fully developed into multi-mixed agro-industrial source of raw material. Accordingly, infrastructural development and enhancement in the area would turn the area into strong economic hinterland for Kuching CoB. The Illustration provide to the left is my initial visualization of infrastructural development network for the region plus all the potential new growth areas that will spur from such initiatives. All these is needed to build a strong economic hinterland economies for the sustainable growth of Kuching. Most important, all these new growth centers would regulate the effect of immigration to Kuching. Kuching then could be well developed into Healthy Borneo Cultural City Center for it will be relieved of all unnecessary urban over crowding pressures.

(20) Indeed both Tebedu and Lubok Antu could be a great gateway for KalBar and KalTeng population and bulk produces. Inland Port facilities could be developed in these two places. What needed is for Sarawak to aggressively facilitate for such to happen. In this sense, Sarawak (and GOM) must have the courage to look at the bigger economic and mutual international gains from such facilitation. Infrastructure especially better road and probably bulk train access could be workout for the purposes. Indeed, the Tebedu-Pusa-Lubok Antu-Tg Manis corridor is having high potential for the advance oil palm and oleo-chemical industrial development if couple with those of KalBar. Accordingly, I can see Pontianak-Putu Sibau is best for the Kapuas International Ghost Ride Fiesta, from Vampire City (Pontianak) to Ghost Town (Lubok Antu) if we could take such seriously and creatively. Indeed good road network between Tebedu and Lubok Antu to Kuching will definitely facilitate for all the KalBar, KalTeng and KalSel arts and creativity inflow into Kuching, and thus making Kuchin a much prosperous and harmonious City of Borneo Cultural Celebration.

(21) Kuala Lumpur and Kuching should work on a best Spatial and Investment Plan on such an idea. Thereon GOM and GOS should work to the best arrangement on how to use our present earning from O&G and thus to really building a much higher growth and prosperity beyond O&G. As we know, O&G resources of the Nation is not going to be forever there. But an honest and smart synergy of GOM and GOS to work on the best return over our O&G resources would be the best for the State and as well as the Nation. I have a strong belief, BSB would love to place their interest to build greater wealth from  their present potential "diminishing" wealth. Both GOM and GOS could takeon BSB to their long term wealth interest creation. We can also work with Singapore.

(22) Sarawak indeed can offer almost all the required development impetus needed by KalBar, KalTeng and KalSel through the good working spirit of Sosek Malindo and BIMP EAGA. Our much advance utilities development could be exported to Kalimantan states. Both GOM and GOS should be having a very strong working arrangement to really building Sarawak to her best along the notion of enriching the neighbor ie the Kalimantan. I have a very strong belief that Brunei, Singapore, ADB and IDB would be more happy to chip in. Let make Borneo as our best foundation in transforming the Nusantara Economic Caucus as we had envisioned sometimes ago. Regatta, Top Spinning, Kite Flying and even Silat are our forefathers left culture and arts that we should seriously read in between the lines as our great strengths to be together and be strong.

(23) As per Kuching per se, to turn Kuching into CoB, GOS need to relook at reshaping Kuching Urban Fabrics to such Kuching should move to a modern green city touch. Numerous urban renewal and or infill need to be done. To name a few, Simpang Tiga Complex, Baddarudin Complex, the RTM-Telkom Complex, Brooke Dockyard, and former BinaMara should be revamped and turn all those into the modern setting for both local and visitors places of interest. In order to facilitate such urban renewal process Kuching should then be having a proper Integrated Modern Administrative Center (IMAC) to place all these public institutions to their most cost-effective public services delivery positioning. The present state of public institutions in Simpang Tiga, Badaruddin, RTM etc I would say is a shame of the State and Nation as we are moving into a Developed Nation. Each of these Complexes, if properly planned and developed on thematic approach, definitely would make Kuching a healthy working, living and a must visit CoB. As key component of CoB, facilities such as the international accord High Learning and Skill Development facilities should be well conceived to carter for Human Resource Development within the Borneo and Indochina. Accordingly, the present Kuching Historical City Zones should be enhanced to provide not only a lovely visiting place, but most important is to turn all those into the true multi-cultural setting of Sarawak in particular and Borneo in general. By virtue of our diverse ethnicity similarity with the rest of Borneo, by so doing, Kuching definitely will be capturing the whole of Borneo Cultural components, and thus giving the perspective of Truly Borneo images. Most important, the present Kuching had been known for its advantage in marketing the Borneo Creative Crafts. This aspect of the Borneo's Creativity could be well capitalise not only as key attraction to Kuching as CoB, but most important as a means to foster stronger Borneo Cultural Bonding. Accordingly, for stronger international marketing advantages, our City Landscapes should keep to the need to uphold our diverse tropical setting. We need to secure the West, Middle East and Far East Market by offering the best Green Tropical City Setting of Kuching. Borneo is tropical, keeping Kuching Sustainable Tropical Setting will add spice to our Kuching CoB vision. The present Kuching International Rain Forest Musical and Tatoo Festival is something that we must expand and sustain.

(24) In the advancement of today 21st century industrial revolution particularly wrt the 4.0 Industrial Generation, Borneo in particular is having great disadvantages. Our key setback is wrt to our infrastructural development gaps. Despite so, Kuching in particular is well located within the high potential major international trading route. So much so, if we dare to take a much strategic positioning, Kuching indeed can evolve into the Borneo ICT Hub. Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Hong Kong, Honolulu and even Sydney can be well connected to Kuching and the rest of Borneo if we could quickly harness the ICT framework to our advantages. For Sarawak to realize its Digital Economic Vision, to start with, we can first begin with the tourism related marketing, E-Education, E-Arts and Cultural Innovation, and as well as E-Medical. Thus, GOS need to move fast to integrate our present infrastucture development with the ICT Infostructure buildup.

(25) As the Kuching CoB build up going steady, we then should move as the Borneo Financial House of which ICT will then be well capitalized. For Kuching to be as such, we need to be smart and far sighted enough to work with Brunei, Singapore, Hong Kong and Tokyo for the purposes. We need to work hard and smart with Kuala Lumpur to make Kuching as Borneo Financial Center. Sarawak, Sabah, Brunei and all the Kalimantan should join force to turn Borneo into the 2050 High Potential World Economic Power. I believe, Jakarta is ever ready to work with us so as to help them to ease Java from all the distress that they are now facing. Making Kuching CoB is helping Borneo to be the World Economic Power and thus easing Jakarta from the headache of Java's problems. Accordingly, definitely Sarawak as a whole will gain better footing. In Shaa Allah.

(26) Who would be the enabler for all these? If in the 1960s, there exist MNC to spear the economic development in the colonized states, such was 60 years ago. With today free flows of capital and expertise definitely with proper smart arrangement, all these could be packaged nicely to a win-win investments. Our key State GLCs plus many others in Kuala Lumpur, we can consolidate our experiences and strengths to be the movers and enablers together with all those private sectors that are now most eager to expand. What indeed immediately needed is for GOS to have a Comprehensive Public-Private Sector Economic Development and Investment Plan for everybody to work on.  Accordingly we must quickly established high competent and good governance system. Our present governing system must be revamped to the best cost-efficient. We need to have very proactive and high integrity Civil Service and Political System. And since Sarawak is quite an autonomous State within Malaysia, we should take such position into a much higher level, and thus working within the Federation Framework to move ourselves, the Nation and region into a more prosperous and harmonious footing.  In Shaa Allah.

The 2012 Summer surpassings, officially the Games of the XXX Olympiad2 and commonly known as capital of the United Kingdom 2012, was a major international multi- disport eventcelebrated in the tradition of the majestic Games, as governed by the International exceptional Committee (IOC). It took place in London, United Kingdom, from 27 July to 12 August 2012. The first event, the group present in womens football, began two days earlier, on 25 July.34 more than than 10,000 athletic supporters from 204 National exceptional Committees (NOCs) participated.5 Following a compact headed by reason prodigious champion Sebastian Coe and then-Mayor of London Ken Livingstone, London was selected as the host city on 6 July 2005 during the 117th IOC Session in Sin offerore, defeating bids from Moscow, New York City, capital of Spain and capital of France.6London was the first city to host the modern Olympic Games troika times,78 having previously done so in 1908 and in 1948.910 Construc tion for the Games convoluted considerable redevelopment, with an emphasis on sustainability.11 The main focus was a tender 200-hectare (490-acre) Olympic Park, constructed on a former industrial site at Stratford, East London.12 The Games also made use of venues that already existed before the bid.13 The Games acquire widespread acclaim for their organisation, with the volunteers, the British military, and public enthusiasm praised particularly highly.141516Theopening ceremony, tell by Danny Boyle, received widespread acclaim.1718 During the Games, Michael Phelps became the most decorated Olympic athlete of all time, winning his 22nd medal.19 Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Brunei entered womanly athletes for the first time, so that every currently eligible country has sent a female competitor to at least one Olympic Games.20 Womens packing material was included for the first time thus, the Games became the first at which every sport had female competitors.21By 15 July 2003, the dead line for interested ci yokes to submit bids to the International Olympic Committee (IOC), nine cities had submitted bids to host the 2012 Summer Olympics Havana, Istanbul, Leipzig,London, capital of Spain, Moscow, New York City, genus Paris and Rio de Janeiro.22 On 18 May 2004, as a result of a scored skilful evaluation, the IOC reduced the number of cities to five London, Madrid, Moscow, New York and Paris.23 All five submitted their vista files by 19 November 2004 and were visited by the IOC inspection team during February and March 2005. The Paris bid suffered two setbacks during the IOC inspection visit a number of strikes and demonstrations simultaneous with the visits, and a composition that a key member of the bid team, goose Drut, would face charges over alleged corrupt party political finances.24 throughout the process, Paris was widely seen as the favourite, particularly as this was its third bid in recent years.London was seen at first as fall back Paris by a consi derable margin. Its position began to improve afterward the appointment of Lord Coe as the new head of London 2012 on 19 May 2004.25 In late August 2004, reports predicted a tie between London and Paris.26 On 6 June 2005 the IOC released its evaluation reports for the five candidate cities. They did not contain any scores or rankings, but the report for Paris was considered the most positive. London was close behind, having closed most of the gap observed by the initial evaluation in 2004. New York and Madrid also received very positive evaluations.27 On 1 July 2005, when asked who would win, Jacques Rogge said, I cannot predict it since I dont know how the IOC members get out vote. only when my gut feeling tells me that it will be very close.Perhaps it will come down to a difference of say ten votes, or maybe less.28 On 6 July 2005, the final selection was announced at the 117th IOC Session in Singapore. Moscow was the first city to be eliminated, followed by New York and Madrid . The final two contenders were London and Paris. At the end of the tail round of voting, London won the right to host the 2012 Games with 54 votes to Pariss 50.29 The celebrations in London were short-lived, being overshadowed by bombings on Londons transport system less than 24 hours after the announcement.30The 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games used a mixture of new venues, existing and historic facilities, and evanescent facilities, some of them in well-known locations such as Hyde Park and horse cavalry Guards Parade. After the Games, some of the new facilities will be reused in their Olympic form, while others will be resized or relocated.38 The majority of venues have been carve up into three zones within Greater London the Olympic Zone, the River Zone and the central Zone. In addition there are a few venues that, by necessity, are outside the boundaries of Greater London, such as the Weymouth and Portland National travel Academy some 125 miles (200 km) southwest of Lon don, which hosted the sailing events.

YBA Kanoo put me into the local hotel (so good prospects there, eh?), and under the care of a very nice Brit guy called Bob. The first thing he did was to offer me half his monthly purchase of the locally produced ‘hooche’ from sugar, which was called ‘saddique’, or ‘friend’, in Arabic, I was told. One needed to dilute each pure half gallon with 100% distilled water and hey presto, one had a full gallon of damned good Vodka-like booze, which went very well with a Bitter Lemon soft drink and a slice of lemon.
A. It took me a short while to discover how the local gay scene operated there and very obvious it was too, once one had learnt the ropes. It transpired that the whole length of the seafront in Al Khobar (about 10/12 miles up from Damman) was the main hunting area. As an Expat, though about mid-40s then even, I needed to either walk up and down or even to just sit down and wait to be approached, in the best of styles of course. Being totally sold on BLACK GUYS ONLY for years already, I was a bit fussy but it would not be long before someone to my liking would appear. Sometimes we drove off in separate cars or I would jump into theirs. One memorable evening I followed two black locals to a house not too far away, followed also by a third Saudi guy in his car. At our destination the other driver was told to get lost by my new randy hosts and we first three went into that empty residence for some sex, one after the other with me as their main dish, and all on the ruddy staircase, would you believe? They then dropped me back at the seafront where I collected my car and I went home very happy.
B (a). One Friday morning (which was their Sunday no-work day, right?), I was driving towards the beach just past Al Khobar, but still in Damman, when I was waved down vigorously by a very black guy on the opposite side of the main road. I drove round to talk with him and it turned out he was a Kenyan aged about 25/26, and soon we were inside his compound where I saw three other Kenyans too. It was going to be good, I thought to myself, but not even I was prepared for what happened in the next 30 odd minutes. To set the ball rolling, the nice first guy led me into an empty but very dusty room off the main interior area, which had a dirty mattress on the floor and little other furniture. We both undressed ourselves and he then proceeded to fuck the hell out me in various positions. He must not have had any sex for ages because he was ravenous and crazy with desire for someone to satisfy himself with, and I was that lucky guy that Friday morning.
(b) As he was leaving he asked me if I wanted his friend to visit me there too (in English of course) and when I nodded a yes, one of his black colleague soon appeared at the door and came into the room. I had remained naked, but coyly hiding my hard-on, and this new guy soon got himself fully undressed too. His style and needs were quite different from the first guy’s because this guy wanted to stand behind me and rub his hard cock up and down my rear like that for a good 5 minutes, all the while simpering loudly and rubbing my cock and balls all the while. Later, he gently got me to bend over in a half standing position, when he changed his quietness a bit and he aggressively stuck his biggish, hard black cock right up my willing rear, soon downloading himself for all he was worth.
(c). As there were no further willing partners wanting a fuck, I dressed up and drove off towards the main road. But I had to turn right and then double back for the beach and just then I saw the first guy waving madly for me to come back. I did as asked and soon I was asked to go back to the room as a third friend had just arrived and he wanted a fuck with me also. How lucky was I to be, I thought? We went into the room for my third fuck on that memorable Friday morning, and it was as different in style and technique as my first two had been. But I was not about to complain, was I??
C. At the beach eventually I was minding my own business (dressed in my swimming pants etc) when, after say 25 minutes maximum, an American sports car rolled up in a cloud of dust and a short black guy, dressed in full local garb, jumped out near to my car. He introduced himself and soon his mates arrived in another car too. Within minutes I agreed to follow them so we could have some sex together and our three cars shot off towards a quiet desert area nearby that they seemed to know. You see, in the Gulf I was discovering there was no messing around being coy and/or beating about the bush; one just went for what one wanted, just as simply as that. I managed to tell the first black guy that I ONLY wanted to play with the two other black guys in the group, and he said ‘no problem’, and that those other two were actually full brothers in fact. (Plz see the attached ‘butch’ photo on my Profile where you can see the three of five wonderful guys I had great sex with that wonderful morning near Al Khobar.) At the chosen quiet area at last, with planes landing overhead at the main local Dharhan airport, a blanket was laid on the sand and the four other guys walked away over the sand dune. I had a quickie with the first short black one. After he’d got his rocks off he went to join the others still out of sight, calling the first of the two brothers to have his turn. Then, after he’d had a good fuck, I had the second brother. We then all jumped into our respective cars and returned in convoy back to the beach. There I took the details of the first black guy and he took my contact telephone number too, as I told him I may be returning to that area in the new year. And that happened too, but on that business trip I was in a YBA Kanoo villa in Damman, but all alone to boot, thank the good Lord.
          'Paradise Discovered, At Last' PART 2 in Bahrain      Cache   Translate Page      
This is my Part 2 stories in Bahrain, dated 26 August 08.

(If you enjoy reading these stories then check out my autobiographic book via http://www.lulu.com and type in my pename of Jon Kwame Abbott, or use the book's title (PDAL) but in full kindly.)

In October ’79 I was sent to Bahrain from Dubai to do a fresh sales campaign in there, also under the supposed care of YBA Kanoo, their Gulf HO in fact. There I was unhappily housed in their bloody singles’ Expat’s residence with three other (straight) Brit pricks and situated not far from The British Club.
A. Feeling my way around town on my first free weekend, I picked up a Saudi guy, aged about 22/24 perhaps, and who was close to becoming a fighter pilot, he said. He was dressed in full gulf Arab rig and very statuesque and handsome he looked too. He took me back to his hotel where I met a younger (say aged 17/18) cousin of his sitting in his room. Soon, the first guy had intimated to me that he’d like to fuck me there and then and so I dropped my trousers and bent over for him. He took out his already biggish, almost black member and started his assignment. While bending over I moved to grab the younger guy, sitting opposite and not 3 or 4 feet away, but he didn’t wish to share his already hard cock in his pants with me, unfortunately. Suddenly, there was a knock on the door, and in panic stations the pilot and I both quickly adjusted our clothing and he said in Arabic to come in, I guess. A new guy entered and they spoke for a few minutes. After that guy had left the room, the pilot officer guy got up and made for me to lower my pants again so he could finish what he’d started a while back. I obliged and he completed a not unpleasant fuck, with me still in a semi bent-over stance. After we’d dressed he asked me to follow him and we went into a room down the corridor. In that room there were about 4 or 5 other youngish Saudis who, I guess, all got a word-by-word story of our recent sexual endeavours just ended. They spoke excitedly together in Arabic and soon the pilot officer said to me that one of the guys present wanted a fuck me too. Always one for a new adventure I agreed and I was motioned to drop my pants and lean up across the side of the bed, my knees on the floor. The new eager guy dropped himself to a squatting position behind me, having already brought out his hard cock, I guess, and over the next 2 to 3 minutes he had a good fuck. All the other guys in the room became quite giggly and very excited at this bold, middle-aged whiteman (Oyibo in Yorouba and Blofonio in Ga languages) allowing himself to get fucked in semi-public. But outside the Gulf region one would be paying very good money for such services, so after him I had two other guys service me too and all went off very, very well all round, I felt. One of the polite guys came to the front door of the hotel to politely see me off, saying as I left that I should return tomorrow. But the next day was a full working day for me so it never happened, worst luck.
B. One of the very best pick-up joints I discovered in Bahrain was the lower bar in The Hotel Diplomat in Manama township. One needed only to buy oneself a couple of beers (all the locals used to by four each at a time) and sit down somewhere prominent. It would take less than 5 or max 10 minutes before a likely horny Arab would saunter up and ask if he could buy me another couple of beers. If I fancied the guy I’d say OK and that would be that, happily!! One evening I was up by the bar and started talking to a very negroid Arab (see his lovely photo in my Profile, if you like), dressed in European kit. He was called Hassan was to learn and son he said he needed to visit the bathroom. After at least 10 minutes he was still missing and I thought he’d left quietly but no, he reappeared and came back towards me. He suddenly tried to squat down onto his haunches as if exercising, but then I saw that he was trying to hide an enormous cock erection in his trousers. Geez, I said under my breath and we both shot out of the hotel, and at his suggestion, to his car. He drove me out of town towards the Saudi waterway area and soon we stopped and got out. I went round and he brought out his lovely big, black and well-shaped 8inch minimum hard, round cock for me to inspect and then play with, while he kissed me passionately up top. Soon he intimated, without saying a single word, he’d like to fuck me and I turned around with alacrity and very much hope and expectation, and he did not disappoint either. Although only 19 years old he knew how to use his glorious black member very expertly, and then he drove us back to Diplomat Hotel for my car, and all within say 30/40 mins maximum of having left it. I was due to depart for Damman, Saudi, soon afterwards and he even came to the airport to see me off. He came fully dressed in his long white Arabic garb and he looked even more beautiful and sexy than he had two days earlier, and that was where I took his photo I’ve attached in my Profile for all of you guys to drool over and, I hope, enjoy as much as I had all those years previously?? (Plz look out for my PART 3 in Saudi Arabia stories soon.)

Senate GOP Shows More Zeal to Challenge Trump on Foreign PolicySome conservatives are indicating they may join Democrats to defy the White House in a vote planned Wednesday on a resolution that would withdraw U.S. support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen. Republican senators also are sponsoring legislation to impose additional sanctions on Russia and are pushing additional punishment for Saudi Arabia over the killing of columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Republican senators generally have been reluctant to criticize Trump on domestic issues -- in part because of the president’s sway with GOP voters -- though at least a few plan to vote Thursday against the president’s emergency declaration to fund border wall construction.

          The Battle for the Future of U.S. Foreign Policy Has Begun      Cache   Translate Page      

Ted Galen Carpenter

There are signs of growing congressional inconsistency, if not incoherence, regarding the authority of the president in foreign affairs. The legislature seeks to interfere on issues that are the president’s responsibility while still failing to fulfill its own constitutionally mandated responsibility regarding the war power.

An incident of misplaced assertiveness took place in January when the House of Representatives passed the NATO Support Act prohibiting the executive branch from using any funds to facilitate U.S. withdrawal from the Alliance in any way. The legislation appears to bar a drawdown of U.S. troop levels in Europe and any effort to terminate U.S. membership in NATO.

Enacting the legislation seemed weirdly premature. President Donald Trump has not even taken any substantive actions that might diminish U.S. participation in NATO affairs. He has merely criticized the allies for their lack of burden-sharing in the collective defense effort and (correctly) suggested that NATO itself might be “obsolete” given how much the European and global security environments have changed since the Alliance’s birth at the dawn of the Cold War against the Soviet Union.

The constitutionality of such restrictions also is highly suspect. The Constitution makes the president the steward of foreign affairs. Presidents historically have enjoyed wide latitude regarding the interpretation, execution, and even termination of U.S. treaties. Chief executives have enjoyed even greater latitude regarding troop deployments, especially in noncombat situations, and the nature, extent, and duration of military commitments to implement treaties or other agreements. Congressional interference in the form of the NATO Support Act would be truly revolutionary-and not in a good way. It is a transparent congressional attempt to usurp the president’s rightful constitutional authority and seek to micromanage U.S. foreign policy.

The NATO issue is not the only case in which congressional efforts are underway to seize control of foreign-policy decisions from the executive. A faction in both houses is now pushing a measure that would prevent the White House from failing to honor U.S. obligations under the Intermediate Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty until it expires in February 2021. Unlike in the case of NATO, the president has taken tangible steps against the INF. After accusing Russia of violating its obligations under the treaty, Trump announced that the United States intended to withdraw from the INF. It should be stressed that the issue is not whether the president’s policies on NATO or the INF are wise or misguided; the relevant issue is whether the Constitution invests the executive or Congress with the authority to make those decisions.

Greater congressional assertiveness on such issues is especially odd given how readily Congress has abandoned its own explicit constitutional authority to control the war power. Even as legislators moved to restrict Trump regarding NATO and the INF, there was no effective campaign to prevent him from implementing his decision to keep at least two hundred troops in Syria, despite the continuing lack of any congressional authorization for U.S. military involvement in that combat zone.

The bipolar nature of congressional behavior is striking. Congress continues the long pattern of abdicating its responsibility when it comes to decisions about whether to involve the republic in armed conflicts. The authors of the Constitution specifically gave the war power to Congress, but that branch has habitually deferred to the president since Harry Truman’s presidential war in Korea in 1950.

Throughout the succeeding decades, occupants of the Oval Office have either bypassed Congress entirely or sought vacuous “blank check” congressional resolutions. The 1964 Gulf of Tonkin Resolution and the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) following the 9/11 terrorist attacks are examples of the latter. Lyndon Johnson’s 1965 invasion of the Dominican Republic, Ronald Reagan’s 1983 invasion of Grenada, Barack Obama’s air war in Libya, and the current U.S. military actions in Syria and Yemen are examples of the former. Bill Clinton probably deserves the award for the most brazen contempt of the congressional war power. Not only did he launch the Kosovo war without congressional approval, but he defied a House vote against giving him such authorization.

The recent vote of both houses to terminate U.S. participation in the Saudi Arabian-led war in Yemen is an encouraging step toward reviving the war power. But only time will tell if that effort is the beginning of a worthwhile trend. The successful effort of the Senate GOP leadership to prevent approval of legislation requiring an explicit AUMF for the Syria mission suggests that the Yemen vote was an outlier and that congressional abdication of the war power likely will continue in most cases.

Yet even as Congress evades its responsibilities in that most vital area, it is escalating its meddling and attempted micromanagement of other elements of foreign policy. For Congress to seek unprecedented, unconstitutional power with respect to nonmilitary aspects of foreign affairs while it continues abdicating the war power is shameful. Instead of trying to dictate policy on the INF and preserve the organizational dinosaur known as NATO against even modest reforms that the president might wish to implement, Congress needs to do a much better job of tending to its own duties and constitutional responsibilities.

Pakistan to offer gas fields to foreign explorers, investors -official

Much of the mineral-rich Pakistan remains unexplored despite gas discoveries dating back to the 1950s.

By Reuters | Mar 12, 2019, 10.11 AM IST

Pakistan also plans to introduce measures that ensure auction rights are unaffected by government or policy changes.

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan plans to offers dozens of gas field concessions in the coming year to fill in a fuel shortage, a senior official said, with Islamabad hoping a sharp drop in militant violence and changes to exploration policy will attract foreign investors.

Much of the mineral-rich South Asian nation remains unexplored despite gas discoveries dating back to the 1950s. Conventional gas reserves are estimated at 20 trillion cubic feet (tcf), or 560 billion cubic meters, and shale gas reserves, which are untouched, at more than 100 tcf.

ADVERTISEMENT

Italy's ENI and U.S. oil major Exxon Mobil are jointly drilling for gas offshore in Pakistan's Arabian Sea, but many other Western companies have not returned after leaving more than a decade ago because of Islamist militant violence.

Nadeem Babar, head of Prime Minister Imran Khan's Task Force on Energy Reforms, told Reuters the government was amending its natural gas regulation and drawing up its first-ever shale gas policy, with licensing rounds to follow later this year.

The government hopes improving security in recent years and the country's extensive pipeline network will attract investors.

ADVERTISEMENT

More than 30 onshore gas blocks have been identified and the government plans to auction a large chunk of them in one or two licensing rounds by the end of 2019, Babar said in his office in the capital Islamabad.

"I expect in the second half of this year we will be auctioning at least 10, if not 20 blocks for exploration."

ADVERTISEMENT

Pakistan's domestic gas output has plateaued in the last five years, falling to 1.46 trillion cubic feet in 2017/18, from 1.51 trillion cubic feet in 2012/2013, according to an annual report from the Petroleum Ministry.

This has led to severe gas shortages as Pakistan's population, now at 208 million people, has risen sharply over the same period, driving fuel demand from industries and new power plants higher.

Gas demand was estimated at 6.9 billion cubic feet per day for 2017/18, according to Pakistan's Oil & Gas Regulatory Authority, nearly 3 billion cubic feet more than daily output.

To help plug the deficit, Pakistan has built two liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminals, and demand is expected to hit 6.97 billion cubic feet a day for 2018/19, and 7.06 billion cubic feet a day in 2019/20.

But LNG is expensive, so Islamabad wants foreign companies to ramp up domestic exploration.

Babar said Pakistan was also drafting its first shale gas policy and it should be finished this year, with a licensing round in the first half of 2020.

One recent study by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) put Pakistan's shale gas reserves at more than 100 tcf in the Lower Indus Region alone, enough to meet current demand for at least a few decades.

One of the keys to developing natural gas production is to give investors affordable and reliable access to a pipeline network, Babar said, and such a plan is being drafted.

"The entire mechanism of how the pipeline system is working today is being is being re-looked at, to make it more deregulated, make it more open access," Babar said.

Prolific blocks and good data
Babar said the blocks for auction were "prolific and ... (had) good data", with interested companies including Saudi Arabia's Aramco, Exxon Mobil and Russia's Gazprom.

Only about 4 percent of Pakistan's landmass has been explored, and the success rate, with one out of three wells making a find, is above the international average, he said.

Babar said at least three more offshore blocks have also been carved out near where Eni and Exxon are searching for gas.

"We will be auctioning those ... probably next year."

To address security concerns, Babar said a military or a paramilitary unit will be created to guard companies that are exploring in the riskier parts of Pakistan, with the companies paying the costs.

"A mechanism like what was done in CPEC will be developed," Babar said, referring to a 15,000-strong army division set up to safeguard Beijing-funded infrastructure projects in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

Pakistan also plans to introduce measures that ensure auction rights are unaffected by government or policy changes, to give investors greater regulatory certainty.

Ethiopian Airlines Crash Kills 157, Spreads Global Grief
'Where are you, my son?': Ethiopian Airlines crash kills 157 people from 35 countries.

March 10, 2019, at 9:01 p.m.

Members of the Ethiopian community take part in a special prayer for the victims of the Ethiopian Airlines flight ET302 crash, at the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church of Canada Saint Mary Cathedral in Toronto, on Sunday, March 10, 2019. Ethiopian Airlines flight ET302 crashed shortly after takeoff from Ethiopia's capital on Sunday morning, killing all 157 on board, authorities said, including 18 Canadians.

BY ELIAS MESERET AND YIDNEK KIRUBEL

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) — An Ethiopian Airlines jet faltered and crashed Sunday shortly after takeoff from the country's capital, carving a gash in the earth and spreading global grief to 35 countries that had someone among the 157 people who were killed.

There was no immediate indication why the plane went down in clear weather while on a flight to Nairobi, the capital of neighboring Kenya. The crash was strikingly similar to that of a Lion Air jet that plunged into the sea off Indonesia minutes after takeoff last year, killing 189 people. Both accidents involved the Boeing 737 Max 8.

The crash shattered more than two years of relative calm in African skies, where travel had long been chaotic. It also was a serious blow to state-owned Ethiopian Airlines, which has expanded to become the continent's largest and best-managed carrier and turned Addis Ababa into the gateway to Africa.

"Ethiopian Airlines is one of the safest airlines in the world. At this stage we cannot rule out anything," CEO Tewolde Gebremariam told reporters. He visited the crash site, standing in the gaping crater flecked with debris.

Black body bags were spread out nearby while Red Cross and other workers looked for remains. As the sun set, the airline's chief operating officer said the plane's flight data recorder had not yet been found.

Around the world, families were gripped by grief. At the Addis Ababa airport, a woman called a mobile number in vain. "Where are you, my son?" she said, in tears. Others cried as they approached the terminal.

Henom Esayas, whose sister's Nigerian husband was killed, told The Associated Press they were startled when a stranger picked up their frantic calls to his mobile phone, told them he had found it in the debris and promptly switched it off.

Shocked leaders of the United Nations, the U.N. refugee agency and the World Food Program announced that colleagues had been on the plane. The U.N. migration agency estimated some 19 U.N.-affiliated employees were killed. Both Addis Ababa and Nairobi are major hubs for humanitarian workers, and many people were on their way to a large U.N. environmental conference set to begin Monday in Nairobi.

The Addis Ababa-Nairobi route links East Africa's two largest economic powers. Sunburned travelers and tour groups crowd the Addis Ababa airport's waiting areas, along with businessmen from China, Gulf nations and elsewhere.

A list of the dead released by Ethiopian Airlines included passengers from China, the United States, Saudi Arabia, Nepal, Israel, India and Somalia. Kenya lost 32 citizens. Canada, 18. Several countries including the United States lost four or more people.

Ethiopian officials declared Monday a day of mourning.

At the Nairobi airport, hopes quickly dimmed for loved ones. "I just pray that he is safe or he was not on it," said Agnes Muilu, who had come to pick up her brother.

The crash is likely to renew questions about the 737 Max , the newest version of Boeing's popular single-aisle airliner, which was first introduced in 1967 and has become the world's most common passenger jet.

Indonesian investigators have not determined a cause for the October crash, but days after the accident Boeing sent a notice to airlines that faulty information from a sensor could cause the plane to automatically point the nose down.

The Lion Air cockpit data recorder showed that the jet's airspeed indicator had malfunctioned on its last four flights, though the airline initially said problems had been fixed.

Safety experts cautioned against drawing too many comparisons between the two crashes until more is known about Sunday's disaster.

The Ethiopian Airlines CEO "stated there were no defects prior to the flight, so it is hard to see any parallels with the Lion Air crash yet," said Harro Ranter, founder of the Aviation Safety Network, which compiles information about accidents worldwide.

The Ethiopian plane was new, delivered to the airline in November. The Boeing 737 Max 8 was one of 30 meant for the airline, Boeing said in July. The jet's last maintenance was on Feb. 4, and it had flown just 1,200 hours.

The plane crashed six minutes after departure , plowing into the ground at Hejere near Bishoftu, or Debre Zeit, some 50 kilometers (31 miles) outside Addis Ababa, at 8:44 a.m.

The jet showed unstable vertical speed after takeoff, air traffic monitor Flightradar 24 said. The senior Ethiopian pilot, who joined the airline in 2010, sent out a distress call and was given clearance to return to the airport, the airline's CEO told reporters.

In the U.S., the Federal Aviation Administration said it would join the National Transportation Safety Board in assisting Ethiopian authorities with the crash investigation. Boeing planned to send a technical team to Ethiopia.


The last deadly crash of an Ethiopian Airlines passenger flight was in 2010, when a plane went down minutes after takeoff from Beirut, killing all 90 people on board.

African air travel has improved in recent years, with the International Air Transport Association in November noting "two years free of any fatalities on any aircraft type."

Sunday's crash comes as the country's reformist young prime minister, Abiy Ahmed, has vowed to open up the airline and other sectors to foreign investment in a major transformation of the state-centered economy.

Speaking at the inauguration in January of a new passenger terminal in Addis Ababa to triple capacity, the prime minister challenged the airline to build a new "Airport City" terminal in Bishoftu — where Sunday's crash occurred.

Three Austrian physicians. The co-founder of an international aid organization. A career ambassador. The wife and children of a Slovak legislator. A Nigerian-born Canadian college professor, author and satirist. They were all among the 157 people from 35 countries who died Sunday morning when an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 jetliner crashed shortly after takeoff from Addis Ababa en route to Nairobi, Kenya. Here are some of their stories.

Kenya: 32 victims

— Hussein Swaleh, the former secretary general of the Football Kenya Federation, was named as being among the dead by Sofapaka Football Club.

He was due to return home on the flight after working as the match commissioner in an African Champions League game in Egypt on Friday.

— Cedric Asiavugwa, a law student at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., was on his way to Nairobi after the death of his fiancee's mother, the university said in a statement.

Asiavugwa, who was in his third year at the law school, was born and raised in Mombasa, Kenya. Before he came to Georgetown, he worked with groups helping refugees in Zimbabwe, Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania, the university said.

At Georgetown, Asiavugwa studied international business and economic law.

The university said Asiavugwa's family and friends "remembered him as a kind, compassionate and gentle soul, known for his beautifully warm and infectious smile."

———

Canada: 18 victims

—Pius Adesanmi, a Nigerian professor with Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, was on his way to a meeting of the African Union's Economic, Social and Cultural Council in Nairobi, John O. Oba, Nigeria's representative to the panel, told The Associated Press.

The author of "Naija No Dey Carry Last," a collection of satirical essays, Adesanmi had degrees from Ilorin and Ibadan universities in Nigeria, and the University of British Columbia. He was director of Carleton's Institute of African Studies, according to the university's website. He was also a former assistant professor of comparative literature at Pennsylvania State University.

"Pius was a towering figure in African and post-colonial scholarship and his sudden loss is a tragedy," said Benoit-Antoine Bacon, Carleton's president and vice chancellor.

Adesanmi was the winner of the inaugural Penguin Prize for African non-fiction writing in 2010.

Mitchell Dick, a Carleton student who is finishing up a communications honors degree, said he took a first- and second-year African literature course with Adesanmi.
