      There is nothing Machiavellian or substantive about Trump’s tweets, he tweets from a position of weakness. He uses his tweets to either bully or tear down or to brag.

    Emotional read. Such an absolutely thrilling time for all of us.

    David Cameron is to take on a new role leading a UK government-backed investment initiative between Britain and China.

    The former prime minister will take charge of a £750m ($1bn) fund to improve ports, roads and rail networks between China and its trading partners.

    The government said working with China’s Belt and Road Initiative would create jobs and boost trade links.

    It comes after Chancellor Philip Hammond’s two-day trip to China.

    The Belt and Road Initiative was first unveiled in 2013, but this year China’s President Xi Jinping pledged £96bn ($124bn) for the scheme.

    The Chinese government said it would invest tens of billions of dollars as part of an ambitious economic plan to rebuild ports, roads and rail networks linking China and its trading partners.

    President Xi intends on developing ancient trade routes through China and Europe to make it easier for the world to trade with China.

      Modi govt played these power abuse games with the opposition party members foisting them with several inflated cases. Since they overreached, our courts from state to central level are slapping down these cases on a regular basis with the end result even the guilty going scotfree in clearly corruption cases. Pity usa, usa, usa doesn’t have such an direct oversight of govt abuse by the courts.

        I just can’t imagine this dolt and his dirty squad stepping into San Francisco and trying to arrest the mayor and Chief of Police. That would trigger complete mayhem.

    Ethiopia to release all political prisoners.

    In a surprise move, Ethiopia’s prime minister has announced the release of all political prisoners and the closure of a notorious detention centre, allegedly used as a torture chamber.

    Hailemariam Desalegn told a press conference the move was designed to allow political dialogue.

    But it is unclear exactly who will be released – or when it will take place.

    Ethiopia, a staunch ally of the West, is accused by rights groups of using mass arrests to stifle opposition.

    Amnesty International welcomed Mr Hailemariam’s announcement, saying it could signal “the end of an era of bloody repression in Ethiopia” – although warned the closure of Maekelawi detention centre should not be used to “whitewash” the “horrifying” events which took place under its roof.

    This is a landmark moment for the country – not least because it is the first time the government has even admitted to having any political prisoners, previously describing them as “criminals”, BBC Ethiopia correspondent Emmanuel Igunza says.

    Rights groups have accused the government of using anti-terrorism laws to jail its critics.

      “You realize where this is going,” Bannon told Wolff. “This is all about money laundering. Mueller chose (senior prosecutor Andrew) Weissmann first and he is a money-laundering guy. Their path to f—ing Trump goes right through Paul Manafort, Don Jr and Jared Kushner … It’s as plain as a hair on your face.”

      LOLOL!!! I’m here for all of this!

      My question: What’s Bannon’s angle here? Why is he dumping all over Trump when everyone else is licking Trump’s boots?

    Am I the only one reading from Senator Doug Jones’ actions that he is signaling that he intends to be a key political player on the national stage for a long time?

      I’ll say, his first hire was his chief of staff which by the way is an African American. That person will be the face of Doug Jones in Washington D.C.

        Awesome. And he had Joe Biden with him at his swearing in ceremony! I love it!! Glad he’s not kowtowing to the GOP despite being from a southern state. This is what having courage looks like. He gets that because he ran a campaign saying “this is who I am”, so the voters knew who he was to begin with. Stand strong Senator Jones.

        The comments above are part of what is making me feel that these are deliberate actions saying: “this is what I believe, these are the people who will have greater influence on my Senate career … so take me as I am & what I promised to be my concerns”

    KIM JONG-UN ORDERED THAT OFFICIALS MAKE CONTACT WITH SOUTH KOREA on Tuesday through a hotline
    that had been dormant for nearly two years.
    http://www.politicususa.com/2018/01/03/kim-jong-un-orders-open-communication-south-korea-time-years.html
    “Hours after President Trump tweeted another reckless taunting message at North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, the regime’s leader
    ordered that officials make contact with South Korea on Tuesday through a hotline that had been dormant for nearly two years.
    The South Korean Unification Ministry said officials from their northern neighbor made a call at 3:30pm local time, the hour at which
    Kim Jong-un mandated it be made, and remained on the line for 20 minutes. The brief contact was spent verifying that the hotline had no technical issues on either side.”

    “The story of CHENEY’S MANEUVERING to kill two agreements (with North Korea) shows how a real US national security interest
    was sacrificed to a massive military boondoggle that served only the interests of the powerful contractors behind it.”
    http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/43048-how-cheney-and-his-allies-created-the-north-korea-nuclear-missile-crisis
    -North Korea proposed an agreement in 1998 that would end its new missile development as part of a broader peace agreement.
    Kim Jong -II sent a personal envoy to Washington to present the outline to give up the regime’s quest for an ICBM + its nuclear weapons capability.

    Ah now Mr. Conspire & Deflect Bannon,
    –This is also about Big Oil and the KOCH/Rosneft/EXXON shares purchased by Trumputin/GOP.
    –The Arctic is on track to be ice-free – per EXXON’s climate change disinformation campaign since 1975.
    –As they wait for Russian sanctions to be lifted…now or later.

    I think Bannon might be more truthful in this instance. Bannon is a true believer when it comes to being a conservative i.e. guns, gays, and religion. Trump, Don Jr. and Kushner aren’t really conservatives, they are businessmen through and through. Trump’s cabinet is made up of people that are only concerned about passing legislation that will put money in their pockets through their business interest. When Trump won the White House his first thought was to wonder how much money he could make, not how could he help fellow Americans, but how can he become more rich. Bannon wants to be a conservative hero, he isn’t all that concerned about money. And that’s why he’s lashing out at the White House. Bannon is willing to burn the village down just to save it, Trump’s inner circle of businessmen aren’t willing to do that. You can always spot the true believers when it comes to politics, they don’t have an overriding obsession with making money.
