No Red Carpet, Tarmac Trouble: China Snubbing Obama at G20 Summit?

Taruni Kumar
Yesterday, 11:29 pm

China may be too aware that US President Barack Obama’s ongoing visit to China for the G20 Summit is his last Asia trip while in office. There’s been trouble from the American President’s very first step, which he could not take because there was no staircase for him to exit the plane and descend on the red carpet. The internal stairs of the President’s plane Air Force One had to be used.
Theresa Fallon, Director of a foreign policy think tank tweeted a photo of Prime Minister Modi’s descent from his plane relative to Obama’s with the caption, “Spot the difference”.

Mexican Government Calls Out AP Over Fake News (Trump Never Threatened to Invade Mexico)

Posted: Feb 02, 2017 8:30 AM

File this one under Fake News.

The Associated Press’ report Wednesday stating that President Trump threatened to invade Mexico if the country doesn’t handle its “bad hombres down there” was so inaccurately reported that the Mexican government issued a statement calling out the news organization.

Calls mount for Trump administration to label Muslim Brotherhood 'terrorist organization'

By  Maxim Lott  
Published February 03, 2017
FoxNews.com

The Trump administration could soon declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, a move that would greatly restrict the controversial group’s global reach and would come despite its insistence that it has peaceful intentions.

Trump himself was often critical of President Obama’s outreach to the Muslim Brotherhood, and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, has proposed a bill to call for declaring the Brotherhood a terror organization. In the past, it has been accused of supporting terrorist groups around the world, and several countries, including Muslim nations, have banned them.

If the U.S. declares the Brotherhood a terrorist organization, it would make it a criminal act for Americans to fund the group, ban banks from processing money for it, bar people with ties to the group from coming to the United States and make it easier to deport immigrants who have worked with the organization.

Why Nobody Cares the President Is Lying
By CHARLES J. SYKESFEB. 4, 2017

MILWAUKEE — If President Trump’s first tumultuous weeks have done nothing else, at least they have again made us a nation of readers.

As Americans grapple with the unreality of the new administration, George Orwell’s “1984” has enjoyed a resurgence of interest, becoming a surprise best seller and an invaluable guide to our post-factual world.

On his first full day in office Mr. Trump insisted that his inaugural crowd was the largest ever, a baseless boast that will likely set a pattern for his relationship both to the media and to the truth.

Federal scientist cooked climate change books ahead of Obama presentation, whistle blower charges

Published February 07, 2017 FoxNews.com

A key Obama administration scientist brushed aside inconvenient data that showed a slowdown in global warming in compiling an alarming 2015 report that coincided with the White House participation in the Paris Climate Conference, a whistle blower is alleging.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), in a major 2013 report, concluded global temperatures had shown a smaller increase from 1998 to 2012 than any similar period over the past 30 to 60 years. But a blockbuster, June 2015 paper by a team of federal scientists led by Thomas Karl, published in the journal Science in June 2015 and later known as the “pausebuster" paper sought to discredit the notion of a slowdown in warming.

"Our new analysis suggests that the apparent hiatus may have been largely the result of limitations in past datasets, and that the rate of warming over the first 15 years of this century has, in fact, been as fast or faster than that seen over the last half of the 20th century," Karl, who was at the time director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Centers for Environmental Information, said at the time.

The report argued that evidence shows there was no “hiatus” in rising global temperatures and that they had been increasing in the 21st century just as quickly as in the last half of the 20th century.

Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, chairman of the House Science Committee, questioned the timing, noting the paper was published just before the Obama Administration’s Clean Power Plan was submitted to the Paris Climate Conference of 2015.

"In the summer of 2015, whistleblowers alerted the Committee that the Karl study was rushed to publication before underlying data issues were resolved to help influence public debate about the so-called Clean Power Plan and upcoming Paris climate conference," Smith said in a statement. "Since then, the Committee has attempted to obtain information that would shed further light on these allegations, but was obstructed at every turn by the previous administration’s officials."

Karl denied the paper was released to boost the plan.

Karl’s neglect of the IPCC data was purposeful, according to John Bates, a recently retired scientist from the National Climactic Data Center at the NOAA. Bates came forward just days ago to charge that the 2015 study selectively used misleading and unverified data – effectively putting NOAA’s thumb on the scale.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Bates said Karl was “insisting on decisions and scientific choices that maximized warming and minimized documentation… in an effort to discredit the notion of a global warming pause, rushed so that he could time publication to influence national and international deliberations on climate policy.”

For example, Karl allegedly adjusted temperature data collected by robot buoys upward to match earlier data from ocean-going ships. That was problematic, Bates said, because ships generate heat and could cause readings to vary.


“They had good data from buoys,” Bates told the Daily Mail. “And they threw it out and ‘corrected’ it by using the bad data from ships. You never change good data to agree with bad, but that’s what they did – so as to make it look as if the sea was warmer.”
Bates, who could not be reached for comment, but has published some of his allegations in a blog, claims to have documentation of his explosive charges and indicated more revelations are coming.


A NOAA spokesman, in an email to The Washington Times, said NOAA “stands behind its world-class scientists” but also that it “takes seriously any allegation that its internal processes have not been followed and will review the matter appropriately.”

Bates is not the first to question Karl’s conclusions. A paper by Canadian climate modeler John Fyfe questioned the 2015 study. As he put it, in a 2016 article from the journal Nature Climate Change, “there is a mismatch between what the climate models are producing and what observations are showing. We can’t ignore it.”

List of Trump's executive orders

Published February 03, 2017 FoxNews.com

Since taking office, President Trump has looked to fulfill some of his campaign promises by using executive orders. Here are the 19 orders, actions and memoranda he has signed so far:

- An order directing the Treasury secretary to review the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial regulatory law.

- A memorandum instructing the Labor Department to delay implementing an Obama rule requiring financial professionals who are giving advice on retirement, and who charge commissions, to put their client's interests first.
An order instructing agencies that whenever they introduce a regulation, they must first abolish two others.

- A memorandum to restructure the National Security Council and the Homeland Security Council.

- A memorandum directing the Secretary of Defense to draw up a plan within 30 days to defeat ISIS.

- An order to lengthen the ban on administration officials working as lobbyists. There is now a 5 year-ban on officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government, and a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.

- An executive order imposing a 120-day suspension of the refugee program and a 90-day ban on travel to the U.S. from citizens of seven terror hot spots: Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Sudan.

- Two multi-pronged orders on border security and immigration enforcement including: the authorization of a U.S.-Mexico border wall; the stripping of federal grant money to sanctuary cities; hiring 5,000 more Border Patrol agents; ending “catch-and-release” policies for illegal immigrants; and reinstating local and state immigration enforcement partnerships.

- A memorandum calling for a 30-day review of military readiness.

- Two orders reviving the Keystone XL pipeline and Dakota Access piplines. He also signed three other related orders that would: expedite the environmental permitting process for infrastructure projects related to the pipelines; direct the Commerce Department to streamline the manufacturing permitting process; and give the Commerce Department 180 days to maximize the use of U.S. steel in the pipeline.

- An order to reinstate the so-called "Mexico City Policy" – a ban on federal funds to international groups that perform abortions or lobby to legalize or promote abortion. The policy was instituted in 1984 by President Reagan, but has gone into and out of effect depending on the party in power in the White House.

- A notice that the U.S. will begin withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. Trump called the order "a great thing for the American worker."

- An order imposing a hiring freeze for some federal government workers as a way to shrink the size of government. This excludes the military, as Trump noted at the signing.

- An order that directs federal agencies to ease the “regulatory burdens” of ObamaCare. It orders agencies to “waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay the implementation of any provision or requirement” of ObamaCare that imposes a “fiscal burden on any State or a cost, fee, tax, penalty, or regulatory burden on individuals, families, healthcare providers, health insurers, patients, recipients of healthcare services, purchasers of health insurance, or makers of medical devices, products, or medications.”

Snow Moon, Lunar Eclipse, Comet Will Be Triple Treat for Stargazers Friday

Stargazers are in for a treat Friday, when a lunar eclipse, a full moon and a comet will light up the night sky.

The lunar surface of the snow moon, the name given to February's full moon, will be subtly shadowed by a penumbral lunar eclipse, which occurs when Earth, the sun and moon align, according to EarthSky.

North, Central and South America will have the best views of the eclipse from the east, while in Europe, Africa and western Asia, the event will be seen as the moon is in the southern sky late at night.

For those on Eastern Time in the U.S., the eclipse will begin at 5:34 p.m. local time and end at 9:53 p.m.

Moon names trace back to Native Americans in the northern and eastern U.S. and helped tribes keep track of the seasons, according to the Farmer's Almanac.

The snow moon also goes by the name of the hunger moon because the brutal weather conditions made hunting nearly impossible, says Moon Connection.

Swedish newspaper trolls Trump with list of incidents that occurred 'last night'
BY JENNIFER CALFAS - 02/20/17 09:06 AM EST

A Swedish newspaper responded to President Trump’s remarks on an incident “last night” in Sweden with its own list of the day’s events.
Aftonbladet, an English-language Swedish newspaper, published a list in response to Trump’s comments Saturday that a terrorism incident occurred in Sweden “last night.”

Ils ont ete pollues par Le Monde eux aussi... Wink

The newspaper’s list goes as follows:
3:24 PM (local time): A man set himself on fire at Sergels torg, a plaza in central Stockholm. He was taken to the hospital with severe burns. There is so far no information on his motives but the intelligence service is not part of the investigation.

6:42 PM: The famous singer Owe Thörnqvist had some technical problems during rehearsal for the singing competition ”Melodifestivalen”. (However, the 87 year old singer still managed to secure the victory the very next day.)

8:23 PM: A man died in hospital, after an accident in the workplace earlier that day in the city of Borås.

8:46 PM: Due to harsh weather in the northern parts of Sweden the road E10 was closed between Katterjåkk and Riksgränsen. Due to strong winds and snow in the region the Met office also issued an avalanche warning.

12:17 AM: Police officers initiated a chase for a fleeing Peugeot through central parts of the Swedish capital of Stockholm. The pursuit ended in police officers ramming the suspect at Engelbrektsgatan. The driver is now accused of driving under the influence, traffic violation and car theft.
IN LIGHTER NEWS

11:23 AM: Ok, let’s not be fake news, this story took place in the autumn, but was reported Friday before lunch and we thought you would like it. A wooden moose got the attention of a lovesick moose bull. It all happened in 79 year old Ove Lindqvist’s garden in Byske outside Skellefteå, northern Sweden. ”I thought it was going to start a fight, instead it humped the wooden moose thrice”, he said.

 Very Happy

Trump originally made the comments on Sweden at a campaign-style rally in Florida on Saturday. He later clarified his comments on Sunday, saying he saw a segment on immigration in Sweden on Fox News.
The segment aired on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” and featured a documentary filmmaker who tied an increased number of refugees coming to Sweden to rising crime rates. However, Reuters reported Sweden’s crime rates have dropped since 2005 even as hundreds of thousands of refugees have entered the country. 

The Swedish newspaper also published a story, titled “Here are the errors in Fox News’ report on Swedish immigration,” debunking the show’s segment. The newspaper says the Fox News segment featured “many errors and exaggerations.”

After demanding a clarification from the United States, the Swedish Embassy in Washington, D.C. responded to Trump's explanation on his statements with an offer to teach him about the country's immigration policies.

“We look forward to informing the U.S. administration about Swedish immigration and integration policies,” the embassy tweeted at Trump.

[url=New Laws in 2-16]https://www.migrationsverket.se/English/About-the-Migration-Agency/New-laws-in-2016.html[/url]

The Swedish Parliament has adopted legislative changes that affect asylum seekers and people applying for a residence permit to move to a family member in Sweden.

Since 1 June a person who has applied for asylum and received a refusal of entry or expulsion order is no longer entitled to accommodation and daily allowance from the Swedish Migration Agency.

On 21 June the Swedish Parliament adopted a new law that will limit asylum seekers' possibilities of being granted residence permits and the possibility for the applicant's family to come to Sweden. The new law entered into force on 20 July and will be valid for three years.

[url=http://dennismichaellynch.com/islam-leader-farrakhan-blasts-jews-promises-allah-will-rule/Islam Leader Farrakhan Blasts Jews, Promises Allah Will Rule[/url]

BY A. GRIFFEE/ FEBRUARY 20, 2017

On the final day of the annual conference for The Nation of Islam in Detroit this past weekend, their leader, Louis Farrakhan took the stage Sunday, with thousands in attendance chanting, “Allahu Akbar.”

During his three-hour speech, Farrakhan told his Muslim followers, “Have no fear, the future is ours. Time for the liberation of our people.”

The Detroit Free Press reported that Farrakhan said, “God wants you to separate, and give you a nation of your own.”

He accused both the Democrat and the Republican parties of neglecting the black community, and said African Americans shouldn’t worry about who’s in power.

Detroit Free Press quoted Farrakhan as saying:

“I’m here to talk to all of you who are shaking in your boots” over Trump being president, Farrakhan said. Imitating a person who’s worried about Trump, Farrakhan said: “What are we going to do, the president is bad. He’s the president and he don’t like black people. He don’t like Mexicans. He don’t like Muslims.”

Farrakhan then said: “Maybe so. Who cares? We don’t give a damn what he likes or what he doesn’t like.

“Have no fear … the future is ours. Time for the liberation of our people.”


He reportedly denounced the Jews, and told his followers, “I want to disabuse the Jews today of the false claim that you are the chosen of God – that Israel or Palestine belongs to you.  I want to disabuse you of that. I’m going to tell you about your future. You that think you have power to frighten and dominate the peoples of the world. I’m here to announce the end of your time!”

“But I am here to announce today the end of his world and the beginning of a brand new reality that all human beings will enjoy peace, freedom justice and equality under the rule of Allah,” Farrakhan reportedly proclaimed.

After More JCC Bomb Threats and Cemetery Vandalism, Trump Avoids Calling Out anti-Semitic Hate Crimes
The president who criticized Obama's for refusing to say the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism' seems reluctant to denounce hate crimes by names when they target Jews.

Allison Kaplan Sommer Feb 21, 2017 3:49 PM

After a wave of anti-Semitic incidents intensified over President’s Day weekend, both White House press secretary Sean Spicer and the president’s daughter Ivanka Trump, spoke out against the phenomenon. Both did so, however, in general terms that avoided the use of the words “Jewish” and “anti-Semitic” and neither accompanied their denunciations with calls for action on the part of authorities to seek out and punish the perpetrators. 
The White House statement did not come out in President Trump’s name nor at the administration’s initiative, but in response to an inquiry by NBC News. The network’s correspondent Peter Alexander - not Spicer himself - shared the official reaction. “Hatred and hate-motivated violence of any kind have no place in a country founded on the promise of individual freedom,” Spicer's statement said. “The president has made it abundantly clear that these actions are unacceptable.”
In fact, since taking office, Trump has avoided straightforward and specific denunciations of hate crimes against Jews when asked about them over the past week at two separate press conferences. Last Thursday, the president berated a Jewish reporter for asking him about the uptick in anti-Semitic threats, interpreting it as an accusation that he himself was anti-Semitic saying it was a “very insulting question.”


Later, in the press conference, Trump seemed to suggest a conspiracy existed of false flag anti-Semitic incidents, being perpetrated by his “opponents” in order to bolster claims that his election and presidency was fueling racism and anti-Semitism. “You have some of the signs and some of that anger caused by the other side,” charged Trump. “They’ll do signs and drawing that are inappropriate. It won’t be my people. It will be people on the other side to anger people like you,” he told a reporter.   clown

On Twitter, his daughter Ivanka Trump, who has until now generally refrained from taking public political stands since her father took office, tweeted  Monday in reaction to the targeting of Jewish community centers across the country. "America is a nation built on the principle of religious tolerance. We must protect our houses of worship & religious centers. #JCC," she tweeted.

Ivanka Trump, who converted to Judaism before marrying Jared Kushner, sends her young children to a synagogue preschool and a Jewish school. Her tweet referred to the bomb threats that were made on Monday to 11 Jewish community centers, including those in New York, Wisconsin, Minnesota, New Mexico, Texas, Illinois and Alabama.

Russia Compiles Psychological Dossier on Trump for Putin
by BILL NEELY

MOSCOW — A dossier on Donald Trump's psychological makeup is being prepared for Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Among its preliminary conclusions is that the new American leader is a risk-taker who can be naïve, according to a senior Kremlin adviser.
Trump "doesn't understand fully who is Mr. Putin — he is a tough guy," former Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Fedorov told NBC News.
The file is being compiled by retired diplomats and some of Putin's staff, he added.

The attempt to get inside the U.S. president's mind is aimed at helping Putin plan for his first meeting with America's new leader, the date for which is yet to be decided.
"Very serious preparatory work is going on in the Kremlin, including a paper — seven pages — describing a psychological portrait of Trump, especially based on this last two to three months, and the last weeks," added Fedorov, who said he has known Trump since 2000.
The dossier was being revised regularly, he said, adding that many in the Kremlin believed that Trump viewed the presidency as a business.

Fedorov added: "Trump is not living in a box — he is living in a crowd. He should listen to the people around him especially in the areas where he is weak."

It is normal for any president or leader to be fully briefed before entering negotiations for the first time with a rival leader, but preparing a detailed dossier on the mind and instincts of a U.S. leader is unusual.

Putin's government is growing increasingly concerned about Trump's battles in Washington, according to Fedorov and former lawmaker Sergei Markov, who remains well-connected at the Kremlin.
It is worried the president will not have the political power to improve relations with Russia, as he has indicated he might try to do, and even, perhaps, lift some U.S. sanctions.

U.S. intelligence agencies concluded that Russia conducted a covert hacking operation to undermine the U.S. election process, which evolved into an attempt to help Trump win the White House. They also believe with "a high level of confidence" that Putin became personally involved in the campaign to interfere in the election.

The White House's connection with the Kremlin — and how deep it runs — remains under scrutiny, which has only ramped up last week when Mike Flynn resigned from his role as national security adviser after admitting to misleading Vice President Mike Pence and other senior administration officials about conversations he had with the Russian ambassador to the United States in December.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has no government or diplomatic experience, but boasts exceptionally close ties with Moscow and Putin.
And former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort — who resigned in August amid questions about his ties to pro-Russia interests in Ukraine — told NBC News last week that he had "no contact knowingly with Russian intelligence officials." Manafort was reportedly one of the Trump campaign officials whose communications were investigated by the FBI, according to The New York Times.

During the election campaign, Trump spoke fondly of Putin. But earlier this month, Trump told Fox News' Bill O'Reilly that while he respects Putin "that doesn't mean I'm going to get along with him."

Meanwhile, the creation of a 9/11-style commission to investigate Russian interference in the presidential election has won bipartisan support.

The issue of Russia "is now a kind of banana skin for Trump — that's why we should avoid any kind of step that could damage Trump," said Fedorov. "Trump cannot come to a meeting with Putin as a loser — he must sort out his domestic problems first."

Fedorov added that Trump's "constant battle with the mass media" was "worrying us."
The U.S. president "is dancing on thin ice," he said. "It's a risky game."

A former prime minister under Putin said the Kremlin is taking no pleasure at Trump's struggles.
"Absolutely not — not laughing," Mikhail Kasyanov said. "The situation is very serious and the whole of [Putin's] team, they are nervous."

Many in the Kremlin believe hardliners in America — in Congress and the military — want to sabotage the president and his plans for better ties with Russia.
Some even talk of a conspiracy against Trump. Markov, the former lawmaker, told NBC News that he believes America's intelligence services "want to overthrow President Trump in a coup" because of his desire to improve relations with Russia.
Flynn was a victim of U.S. intelligence services, according to Markov.

So while many in Russia celebrated Trump's election, the mood in Moscow was changing from delight at Trump's election to doubt about his ability to deliver on a better relationship with Russia, he added.

"Donald Trump has done nothing good for Russia, nothing," Markov said. "But they already attack him."

Trump lashes out at media for failing to report debt decrease
Michael Collins , USA TODAY 11:42 a.m. ET Feb. 25, 2017

President Trump speaks during a listening session on domestic and international human trafficking in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on Feb. 23, 2017.
WASHINGTON – President Trump took to Twitter on Saturday morning to claim the media ignored some good news about his administration.
“The media has not reported that the National Debt in my first month went down by $12 billion vs a $200 billion increase in Obama first mo,” he tweeted.
In a follow-up tweet, he added: “Great optimism for future of U.S. business, AND JOBS, with the DOW having an 11th straight record close. Big tax & regulation cuts coming!”

Trump didn't indicate where he got the numbers, but some of his supporters have been making the same argument. The Gateway Pundit, a far-right website, published an article Thursday citing figures from the Treasury Department that show the national debt stood at $19,947 billion the day Trump took office but fell to $19,935 billion by Feb. 21 – a drop of $12 billion.

However, Business Insider reported the situations aren’t comparable.
While it’s true that the debt probably ticked down, “this is mostly due to the federal government rebalancing its intra-governmental holdings,” the publication reported. “Debt outstanding to the public has barely budged since Inauguration Day."

In addition, the federal government is still operating under the budget passed before Trump came into office, so even if the overall debt decreased, his administration had little to do with it, the publication said.
 

“Finally,” the Business Insider noted, “the economic circumstances during his and Obama's first month in office are vastly different and make the comparison totally off base.
“When Obama took office in January 2009, the country was in the midst of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. The US economy lost 702,000 jobs in February 2009 and 832,000 in March 2009, GDP growth collapsed, and foreclosures soared.
“In response to this crisis, Obama did what presidents typically do during recessions: took on debt to stimulate the economy.”

The Congressional Budget Office projected national debt will grow by $9.4 trillion over the next decade, even without further spending.

But, “based on his campaign pledges, many analysts say Trump’s policies would be likely to significantly widen the budget deficit,” the Council on Foreign Relations reported Friday.
The report cited Trump’s promises to forgo any cuts to entitlements, rebuild the military, spend $1 trillion on infrastructure and cut corporate and individual taxes.


                                                                   ------------------------------------------

"Considering that Trump hasn’t enacted any fiscal legislation, it’s a bit of a stretch for him to take credit for any changes in debt levels,
"Debt levels go up and down in the short run based on independent factors such as quarterly tax payments and predetermined expenditure patterns,"

Dan Mitchell, a libertarian economist and senior fellow at the Cato Institute

CNN’s brand has continued to struggle.

CNN, which President Trump has referred to as the “Clinton News Network,” now trails both MSNBC and Fox News in brand perception, according to findings from YouGov. Both MSNBC and CNN have fallen far behind Fox News in recent months.

Respondents were asked, “If you’ve heard anything about the brand in the last two weeks, through advertising, news or word of mouth, was it positive or negative?”

Of the three cable networks, only Fox News scored a neutral brand perception. Both CNN and MSNBC were well in the negatives.

Coal mining begins seeing revival as Trump gives industry hope

By Johnny Giles Published March 01, 2017

Wise County, Virginia – A long-awaited revival is under way in this beleaguered Central Appalachia community where residents see coal as the once and future king.

Trucks are running again. Miners working seven days a week cannot keep up with current demand. Coal mines, long dormant after the industry’s collapse, are now buzzing again with antlike activity.

“We load coal every day for the power plant in Virginia City,” explained Rick, a long-time supervisor for a major local operation who did not want to give his last name. “There's one shipment a week for Georgia Power, and one for Tennessee Eastman.”

The past month has seen a resurgence of the coal industry that once formed the backbone of the region's economy, and locals credit President Trump's aggressive, pro-energy agenda.

Crippled by a slew of factors, from changing times, an emphasis on renewable energy, and the Obama administration's harsh penalties on coal-fired power plants, the area's economy took a devastating hit over the past eight years. Many of the people living in these mountains had nearly given up hope that the area could ever recover.

The smaller communities in this county in southwest Virginia, such as the towns of Appalachia, Pound and St. Paul, were the hardest hit, but the ripple effects were felt far and wide.

Prospects changed nearly overnight. President Trump had promised to do everything he could to lift the coal mining industry. Trump began to make good on his pledge last month when he eliminated the Stream Protection Rule, which had placed layers of regulations on the industry.

Although it will take a while before the coal industry recovers, the metallurgical or "met coal" markets – coal used to make steel – are already seeing a major upswing. The price for met coal is twice as high as it was a year ago, which is causing a boom in the coalfields.

The turnaround owes to more than just Trump. China cut its own production, which helps lift the met industry in the United States. But, many in this area say, Trump’s moves to lift regulations are stoking a rally they have not seen in years.

And Jesus Said Unto Paul of Ryan ...
Nicholas Kristof
Nicholas Kristof MARCH 16, 2017


What would Jesus tell House Speaker Paul Ryan about looking after the sick and the needy?

A woman who had been bleeding for 12 years came up behind Jesus and touched his clothes in hope of a cure.

Jesus turned to her and said: “Fear not. Because of your faith, you are now healed.”


Then spoke Pious Paul of Ryan: “But teacher, is that wise? When you cure her, she learns dependency. Then the poor won’t take care of themselves, knowing that you’ll always bail them out! You must teach them personal responsibility!”

They were interrupted by 10 lepers who stood at a distance and shouted, “Jesus, have pity on us.”

“NO!” shouted Pious Paul. “Jesus! You don’t have time. We have a cocktail party fund-raiser in the temple. And don’t worry about them — they’ve already got health care access.”

Jesus turned to Pious Paul, puzzled.

“Why, they can pray for a cure,” Pious Paul explained. “I call that universal health care access.”

Jesus turned to the 10 lepers. “Rise and go,” he told them. “Your faith has made you well.” Then he turned back to Pious Paul, saying, “Let me tell you the story of the good Samaritan.

“A man was attacked by robbers who stripped him of clothes, beat him and left him half dead. A minister passed down this same road, and when he saw the injured man, he crossed to the other side and hurried on. So did a rich man who claimed to serve God. But then a despised Samaritan came by and took pity on the injured man. He bandaged his wounds and put the man on his own donkey and paid an innkeeper to nurse him to health. So which of these three should we follow?”


“Those who had mercy on him,” Pious Paul said promptly.

Jesus nodded. “So go ——”

“I mean the first two,” Pious Paul interjected. “For the Samaritan’s work is unsustainable and sends the wrong message. It teaches travelers to take dangerous roads, knowing that others will rescue them from self-destructive behaviors. This Samaritan also seems to think it right to redistribute money from those who are successful and give it to losers. That’s socialism! Meanwhile, if the rich man keeps his money, he can invest it and create jobs. So it’s an act of mercy for the rich man to hurry on and ignore the robbery victim.”

“How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of Heaven,” Jesus mused to himself. “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter heaven.”

“Let me teach you about love, Jesus — tough love!” Pious Paul explained. “You need a sustainable pro-business model. And you need to give people freedom, Jesus, the freedom to suffer misery and poverty.”

“The Lord God has anointed me to bring good news to the poor,” Jesus replied, emphasizing the last two words. Then he turned to a paralyzed beggar at his feet. “Stand up!” Jesus told the man. “Pick up your mat and go home.”

As the man danced about joyfully, Pious Paul rolled his eyes dismissively.

“Look, Jesus, you have rare talent, and it should be rewarded,” Pious Paul said. “I have a partner, The Donald, who would like to work with you: He’d set up a lovely hospital, and the rich would come and pay for you to heal them. You’d get a percentage, and it’d be a real money-spinner. Overhead would be minimal because every morning you could multiply some loaves and fishes. You could strike it rich!”

“Blessed are the poor, for theirs is the kingdom of God,” Jesus said. “But woe to you who are rich, for you have already received comfort.”


“Oh, come on, Jesus,” Pious Paul protested. “Don’t go socialist on me again. Please don’t encourage class warfare. The best way to help the needy is to give public money to the rich. That then inspires the poor to work harder, galvanizes the sick to become healthy, forces the lepers to solve their own problems rather than kick back and depend on others. That’s why any realistic health plan has to focus on providing less coverage for the poor, and big tax benefits for the rich. When millions of people lose health care, that’s when a country is great again!”

“From everyone who has been given much,” Jesus told him, “much will be required.”

“Well, sure, this hospital would have a foundation to do some charity work. Maybe commissioning portraits of The Donald to hang in the entrance. But let’s drop this bleeding heart nonsense about health care as a human right, and see it as a financial opportunity to reward investors. In this partnership, 62 percent of the benefits would go to the top 0.6 percent — perfect for a health care plan.”

Jesus turned to Pious Paul on his left and said: “Be gone! For I was hungry and you gave me no food; I was thirsty, and you gave me no drink; and I was sick, and you did not help me.”

“But, Lord,” protested Pious Paul of Ryan, “when did I see you hungry or thirsty or sick and refuse to help you? I drop your name everywhere. And I’m pro-life!”

“Truly, I say to you,” Jesus responded, “as you did not help the homeless, the sick — as you did not help the least of these, you did not help me.”

Happiness report: Norway is the happiest place on Earth

Norway is the happiest place on Earth, according to a United Nations agency report - toppling neighbour Denmark from the number one position.
The World Happiness Report measures "subjective well-being" - how happy the people are, and why.
Denmark, Iceland, Switzerland and and Finland round out the top five, while the Central African Republic came last.
Western Europe and North America dominated the top of table, with the US and UK at 14th and 19th, respectively.
Countries in sub-Saharan Africa and those hit by conflict have predictably low scores. Syria placed 152 of 155 countries - Yemen and South Sudan, which are facing impending famine, came in at 146 and 147.

The World Happiness Report was released to coincide with the United Nations' International Day of Happiness on 20 March.
The world's happiest - and saddest - countries

Happiest                                   Least happy
1. Norway                                146. Yemen
2. Denmark                              147. South Sudan
3. Iceland                                 148. Liberia
4. Switzerland                           149. Guinea
5. Finland                                  150. Togo
6. Netherlands                           151. Rwanda
7. Canada                                  152. Syria
8. New Zealand                          153. Tanzania
9. Australia                                154. Burundi
10. Sweden                                155. Central African Republic

It mainly relies on asking a simple, subjective question of more than 1,000 people every year in more than 150 countries.
"Imagine a ladder, with steps numbered from 0 at the bottom to 10 at the top," the question asks.
"The top of the ladder represents the best possible life for you and the bottom of the ladder represents the worst possible life for you. On which step of the ladder would you say you personally feel you stand at this time?"
The average result is the country's score - ranging from Norway's 7.54 to the Central African Republic's 2.69. But the report also tries to analyse statistics to explain why one country is happier than another.
It looks at factors including economic strength (measured in GDP per capita), social support, life expectancy, freedom of choice, generosity, and perceived corruption.

'America's crisis'
This year's report also contains a chapter titled "restoring American happiness", which examines why happiness levels in the United States are falling, despite constantly-increasing economic improvement.
"The United States can and should raise happiness by addressing America's multi-faceted social crisis - rising inequality, corruption, isolation, and distrust - rather than focusing exclusively or even mainly on economic growth," the authors said.
"America's crisis is, in short, a social crisis, not an economic crisis."
Jeffrey Sachs, the director of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network, which published the report, said President Donald Trump's policies were likely to make things worse.
"They are all aimed at increasing inequality - tax cuts at the top, throwing people off the healthcare rolls, cutting Meals on Wheels in order to raise military spending. I think everything that has been proposed goes in the wrong direction," he told Reuters.

The report also suggests that professional "white collar" jobs are associated with improved happiness over "blue collar" roles - but that having a job at all is one of the biggest factors.
And while "those in well-paying jobs are happier and more satisfied with their lives", that effect has diminishing returns - "an extra $100 of salary is worth much more to someone at the lower end of the income distribution than someone already earning much more."

The report has been published for the past five years, during which the Nordic countries have consistently dominated the top spots.
The clear dominance of those countries - and Denmark in particular - has encouraged other nations to adopt the Danish concept of "Hygge" - a cultural concept of cosiness and relaxation.

Pour le Yemen, je dis oui. Il etait pourtant bien parti quand le vice president, Hadi, arrive aux commandes.  Hadi etait soutenu par l'Arabie Saoudite sunnite. Il voulait instaurer un processus de dialogue national pour mettre en place une nouvelle constitution et faire du Yemen un etat federal.

Mais...et c'est la que ca coince, le projet envisageait d’accorder aux Zaydites, une communaute chiite (1/3 de la population) un territoire sans accès à la mer. Precision : Les Houthis sont un mouvement rebelle opposé au gouvernement central du Yémen depuis plus de dix ans.
On dit aussi que l'ex-President, Ali Abdallah Saleh, leur aurait apporté son soutien pour se venger d'avoir ete chasse du pouvoir et pour revenir sur la scene politique en tant que "sauveur".

Ajoutez a ca les nombreux problemes economiques et sociaux et vous avez tous les ingredients pour que ca explose. Les houthis prennent les armes et s’emparent de Sanaa en septembre 2014.

Autre facteur : Le Yemen du Nord est le refuge d'Ansar al-Shari'a, l'une des branches les plus dangereuses d'Al Qaeda.

Bref entre ca et l'Arabie qui continue a bombarder (conflit sunnite/chiite) on n'est prets de revoir ni Sana'a ni l'Ile de Socotra Crying or Very sad

Pour la Tanzanie les problemes sont d'ordre tout a fait different. Violence locale de nature politique et ethnique, criminalite, touristes detrousses sur des chemins isoles, enlevements contre rancon etc. Il y a un terrorisme lie a Al Qaeda mais a une toute petite echelle, comme partout.
Le risque d’attentat existe sur l'ile de Zanzibar surtout contre des chefs religieux.
Mais bon dans l'absolu, ce n'est pas trop un frein pour voyager, il suffit juste de faire attention et ne pas trop s'aventurer dans des endroits "delicats".

Ah c'etait une question piege? Wink
Et bien non, malgre des relents lutheriens dans certains de ces pays, je n'ai pas vu une quelconque influence sur le quotidien. A moins de vouloir mettre
certaines regles de bon sens sous la designation religieuse, mais ce serait couper les cheveux en 4.
Je ne sais pas ce qu'il en est dans votre coin "en haut a droite" par contre Very Happy

Oh non, Shansaa: ce n'était pas une question piège . Perso, je suis en froid avec toutes les religions, mais il me semble (il me semble, il me semble..comme dirait Biloulou Wink ) qu'une certaine religion de certains pays nordiques, souvent qualifiée d'austère , pourrait, peut-être, avoir, éventuellement, une certaine influence dans ce classement...(ainsi que dans l'éthique en politique...) Mais ce n'est que l'hypothèse d'un profane. . silent

Donc nous disons a peu pres la meme chose avec des mots differents.
On retrouve l'austerite Calvinsite ou Lutherienne dans les actes de tous les jours effectivement et sans connotation religieuse. Le revers de la medaille c'est que cela produit quelquefois des citoyens-flics, tres a cheval sur la moindre petite "infraction" du style "j'appelle les flics parce qu'il y a une voiture garee a moitie sur les clous". Je l'ai vu en Suisse surtout et dans une moindre mesure en Norvege. Les regles c'est bien mais il faut savoir respirer un bon coup de temps en temps...

Il est effectivement interessant de constater que les pays "catholiques" ne sont pas presents dans ce classement.

Citation :
Emmanuel Macron Will Be Yet Another Failed French President

By CHRIS BICKERTONSEPT. 7, 2017


President Emmanuel Macron of France is liberalism’s new poster boy. Hailed as the answer to Europe’s populist tide, he has brought a buzz back into French diplomacy by facing down President Trump and President Vladimir Putin of Russia. “The Macron method,” a leading European think tank gushed recently, is the new Third Way, threading the needle between technocracy and populism.

At home in France, it’s a very different story. A recent poll found that Mr. Macron’s popularity fell by 14 points in August, after a fall of 10 points in July. Only 40 percent of respondents said they were satisfied with the president’s performance.

To be fair, Mr. Macron never had much popular support to begin with. In the first round of the presidential election in April, when the vote was split among four main contenders, he won just under 24 percent. (By comparison, François Hollande received 28 percent of the vote in the first round in 2012. Nicolas Sarkozy won 31 percent in 2007.) Mr. Macron won the second round handily, but only because he was the lesser-evil candidate in the runoff — his competitor was Marine Le Pen, the leader of the far-right populist National Front party.

Electoral arithmetic explains only so much. Mr. Macron’s popularity suffers from something more fundamental: Macronism. His entire political project has been far too focused on his personality. Much of his appeal has come from his youth, his dynamism, his good looks and his oratorical skills. This hyper-personalized approach always carried the risk that once his charm wore off, there would be nothing left for his supporters to like, which is exactly what is happening.

Since taking office, Mr. Macron has put off many people by trying to recapture the grandeur of the presidency. In a phrase that may stick to him for the rest of his time in office, he said he wanted to make the presidency more “Jupiterian,” comparing himself with the powerful Roman god Jupiter, who ruled the skies. When he brought the Senate and Parliament together at the Versailles palace and spoke to them about his ambitions for the presidency, many in France bristled at the monarchical overtones.
Continue reading the main story


This arrogant attitude about power has destroyed the anti-establishment, upstart image that Mr. Macron cultivated during the campaign. The post-ideological platform on which he ran is starting to reveal itself for what it really is: an emptiness at the heart of his political project.
