Theresa May survives no-confidence vote 325 to 306


Mrs May announced afterwards that she wanted to immediately start talks with opposition leaders tonight about a way forward, but Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and the Liberal Democrats said they would not do so until she rules out a no-deal #Brexit.

Should be possible for her; she knows better than to not rule out a No-Deal Brexit that would destroy her country's economy completely. She cannot rely on the voices of the die-hard Brexiters who would rather see the land go down into a pit of grease than to confess they were mistaken about a Brexit with no plan for the future. Those people would also wish to go back into the ages of absolute monarchy and a Thames malfunctioning as a city's garbage bin.

The scale of the rebellion last night was beyond even the worst-case scenario of many in the UK government. It was the worst in British parliamentary history and saw the highest number of government MPs cross the floor, with ... show more
 

Earlier general elections or second referendum?


"The critical issue is now that she's been defeated in the House of Commons, what does Theresa May do and I think, there's only one way she can really go now — and that's towards a referendum to give the people a chance to sort out this crisis," Andrew Adonis, a Labour member of parliament who previously served as U.K. transport minister and education minister, told CNBC on Wednesday.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is hoping May will lose the leadership vote, which will pave the way for a general election that Labour is likely to win. But many political analysts and some Labour politicians believe May will survive the no-confidence motion, unless Conservative lawmakers vote against their own party leader.

Who's running for president (on the sides)?


On Republican side:
  • Donald Trump (of course)
  • (No-one else officially announced yet, or even spoke publicly about probably running for president)
On Democratic side:
  • Julian Castro (D - TX)
  • Tulsi Gabbard (D - HI)

  • Kamala Harris (D - CA)
  • Cory Brooker (D - NJ)

Official results crown Felix Tshisekedi victor of Congolese elections


Even before the electoral commission made the surprise announcement that Mr Tshisekedi had won the election in the early hours of Thursday, the 55-year-old scion of the doyen of Congolese opposition Etienne Tshisekedi had been in talks with the Kabila side, making his opponents allege that the government had rigged the result in his favour.

By Friday, there was no evidence produced to show foul play, but there had been complaints of massive irregularities. Leaked information showed that the Catholic Church, which deployed 40,000 observers in the electoral zones, believes Martin Fayulu, the joint opposition candidate, won.

Whoever thought that the church would make a capable observant for general elections, must have never thought that the church could be an affiliated to the leader in charge.

France, a key DRC development partner also questioned the results. Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian called for clarity on presidential election results because the surp... show more
 

Joint oppositional leader Martin #Fayulu appeals to election results


"The request seeks the annulment of the result declaring Felix Tshisekedi president," Toussaint Ekombe told reporters outside the court.

Explaining the appeal, Fayulu said he believed election chief Corneille #Nangaa had "broken electoral law" in the December 30 vote to choose a successor to President Joseph #Kabila.

Trump complains "most insulting article he ever read" on #FBI's Russia investigation


The article said, "No evidence has emerged publicly that Mr. Drumpf was secretly in contact with or took direction from Russian government officials." But Drumpf felt the Times' headline was unfair and attacked the "disaster of a newspaper," which is a frequent target of his criticisms.

What doesn't emerge publicly can still have emerged. Donnie was only able to win the elections because Russia excelled at meddling the elections secretly. Only to his unfortune, the collusion was recognised at one point, and so, the race began. Unlike Donnie, the NYT works calmly, reasonably, and not with the manners of The Sun, Faux News, or Breitbart.

How #Trump's stubborn consistency could affect his 2020 election outcome


Even during the 2016 Republican primaries, a majority of voters opposed deporting all undocumented immigrants in all but two of the 20 states where exit polls asked their opinion. Yet the minority of voters that supported deportation backed Drumpf in such preponderant numbers that they provided a majority of his votes in all but two of the 20 states.

The same pattern was evident in the general election. In the exit poll, just 41 percent of voters supported Drumpf’s border wall, while a solid majority of 54 percent opposed it. Yet Drumpf won a much higher share of the wall’s supporters (85 percent) than Hillary Clinton did of the wall’s opponents (76 percent). Roughly one-fourth of the wall’s opponents either voted for Drumpf (16 percent) or drifted away to a third-party candidate (8 percent).

In the exit poll, 18 percent of the college-educated whites who oppose... show more
 

Beto O'Rourke speaking with from near the border in unusual situations


Introducing viewers to Diana, his dental hygienist, O’Rourke asked her what she wanted people to know about the border, as President Donald Drumpf continues to press for funding for a border wall.
“It’s a beautiful community,” the woman said. “We all support each other. We love each other. And it’s not what everybody else thinks badly about us. It’s actually a wonderful place to live and grow up.”

#Netanyahu's #Likud party not voting for ban on anonymous propaganda


Lawyers Shachar Ben Meir and Isaac Aviram appealed to the committee in December to extend a law banning anonymous election propaganda, so that it applies to online publicity, too, and not only to newspapers or billboards mentioned in the 1959 law.

In its response, which stands out from reactions by other parties, Likud said that the Central Elections Committee doesn't have the authority to discuss such matters, which require changes to the law. Other parties that responded to the appeal supported it.

Supreme Court could legalise (and worsen) #gerrymandering


Although Kennedy’s replacement, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, did not decide any gerrymandering cases as a lower-court judge, his general disposition lines him up with the other conservatives on the Court who believe that the judiciary has no business policing gerrymandering. In the Maryland and North Carolina cases the Court just took, both lower courts were willing to act as the police. Because of a procedural quirk, a decision by the Supreme Court not to hear these cases would have counted as an acknowledgment that the lower courts got the question right. So there’s every reason to expect 5–4 reversals unless a conservative justice or two goes rogue, or gets cold feet.

Now, I imagine that abortion rights - which have been deterred in Ohio already - could be the least problem we are going to have with Brett Kavanaugh. Imagine that he could be the key player in legalising and worsening gerrym... show more
 

On the Congolese elections


But that may be about to change. Martin Fayulu, the man supported by a former rebel commander who had been previously charged (but later acquitted) with allowing rape and crimes against humanity under his leadership, may have won the election away from the ruling party.

In the meantime, however, the New York Times has announced Fayulu’s win. Anticipating violence and unrest, the US has sent troops to neighbouring countries to protect US citizens and diplomatic facilities.

At least they sent some troops. Some troops are currently frightened to be let down because the US withdraw their troops soon.

The government is good at repressing political opposition. During previous elections, SMS communication was cancelled. But this year the government also turned off the internet. Key independent radio and television programs have been closed and reporters ejected from the country.

New parties emerge in Israel as elections take place in a few months


Former IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz is one of those expected to play a part in coalition-building calculations after the election.
His new party, Israel Resilience, is doing well in the polls — as is Gesher (Bridge), founded by Orly Levy-Abekasis, who was originally elected to the Knesset as a member of Avigdor Lieberman’s Yisrael Beiteinu but left two years ago.

Three days earlier, the national-religious Jewish Home split when two of its leaders, Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, departed to form The New Right, which will be open to religious and secular members.

Israel's party system becomes more and more confusing with all these parties and what differs them from other, already existing parties, beside the vague chance of becoming big enough to have a viable chance of reaching enough seats to be recognised as a useful partner in a coalition.

But his biggest worry is the threat of an announcement b... show more
 

Elizabeth Warren starts presidential campaign race in #Iowa


During a Saturday morning event in Sioux City, audience members were given the chance to ask the Massachusetts senator questions. The first? A query about her decision to take a DNA test and release the results on her Native American ancestry.

After the question from the audience member, Warren on Saturday told Iowan voters that the test wasn't meant to show any claim to a tribe and said she understood and respected the difference between ancestry and tribal citizenship. She said after the attacks she merely just wanted to "put it all out there."

On #Russia's and #Iran's influence on #Israel's election


True, neither the prime minister nor his challengers are likely to want to acknowledge publicly the reality of a diminished U.S. role, and its implications for Israel. But they can address what Israel may need to be doing on its own, given Russia’s increased prominence in the region and its new criticism of Israeli actions in Syria and Lebanon.

I don't know if they mean that Israel could leave Russia some space in the future, due to Donnie intending to diminish his country's role in the Middle East. It would be a similar move to the Kurds who now adress Assad to back them since the US have turned their back on them.

Elizabeth Warren candidates for presidency in 2020


Others, including some of Warren’s fellow senators, are also getting ready to make announcements of their own, and some are expected within days, according to the Washington Post.

I hope that the others are going to announce their candidacy soon as well. The sooner you start to gather money and sound for your election, the better it is. They are going to face an important election, they will have to kick out the orange buffoon and tidy up the mess the toddler with a constant temper tantrum has created.

“I’ve spent my career getting to the bottom of why America’s promise works for some families, but others, who work just as hard, slip through the cracks into disaster,” Warren, 69, says in the video. “And what I’ve found is terrifying: these aren’t cracks families are falling into, they’re traps. America’s middle class is under attack.”

On #DRC's general election, and its chaotic progress


He said the ruling coalition candidate, Emmanuel Ramazani Shadary, who is backed by Kabila, had only about 13 percent, although a significant part of the vote remained to be tabulated.

Nehemie Mwilanya, Kabila’s chief of staff and a member of Shadary’s campaign, told a news conference on Monday morning that he was confident Shadary had won, although he did not provide specific figures.

So, we have to continue waiting for more or less official results. The country is an entire mess, I don't believe that the results will ever be accepted by both parties mutually, both want to seat in the highest position, and are ready to send their hordes out to empower their outright desire.

The most recent opinion poll before the election, released by New York University’s Congo Research Group on Friday, showed Fayulu, a former Exxon Mobil manager, leading the race on 47 percent.

#Hasina reelected, accused of election fraud


Hasina, who has been in office since 2009, is credited with almost a decade of continued GDP growth in Bangladesh as well as the development of a roughly $30 billion garment export industry, second-largest only to China. She has also been applauded for her handling of the Rohingya refugee crisis, reports Al Jazeera. Her ruling Awami League alliance won 288 of the 300 parliamentary seats up for grabs during Sunday's election, reports AP.

So, she may have improved her ocuntry's wealth and handled the Rohingya crisis quite well, but still she was alleged of having defrauded the election. Didn't she think her reelection was saved just by her good deeds? Did she see reasons for people to vote in favour of her opponent? We don't know, but the video footage provided by the BBC is interesting...

These concerns prompted the U.S. to send election monitors, according to Reuters. During Sunday's vote, at least 17 people were killed, de... show more
 

Elections in #Bangladesh


The election is likely to deliver a third straight term for Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. Her main rival is serving a jail term for corruption.

Another candidate jailed for corruption allegations, just as in Brazil, although there, we didn't talk about a reelection for the major candidate, we were talking about a revival for fascism in Latin America.

The build-up to the poll was marred by violence and accusations of a crackdown against the opposition. Some 600,000 security personnel were deployed to prevent clashes.

Why does it always sound like outside of Europe, elections will never go on and continue without giant violent clashes? I mean, just look over the sea; no matter where you're looking, people are murdering each other because of one party that is likely to fall for corruption or violation of international laws.

#Democrats arm up for campaign rallies


All four are likely to spend considerable time and money in 2019 competing with one another to answer the strong yearning from Democrats for new leadership, and they don’t want to lose a step to a rival fresh face, such as Representative Beto O’Rourke, the former Texas Senate candidate who has been the focus of intense speculation in recent weeks as a potential presidential candidate.

But still, he's not the strongest potential candidate for the Democratic presidential candidate, just saying. He's the third strongest, behind Joe Biden and someone completely different.

And they might well scramble the early polling leads held by Mr. Biden and Mr. Sanders, who benefit from strong name recognition but would be in their late 70s by Election Day 2020, at a moment when some in the party are agitating for generational change.

We need younger candidates!

What do #Democrats want?


Landing at the top of the list of 11 options was “someone entirely new” – perhaps a prospect not on the political radar screen yet. Nearly six in 10 of those surveyed – 59 percent – said they would be “excited” about a candidate like that; only 11 percent said they’d prefer that a new face not run.

To say that you wanted someone entirely new, but were unable to drop a name of this someone, is like not saying anything without expressing exactly this. Just saying…

That said, close behind was Joe Biden, the opposite of someone entirely new. Biden, now 76, was a veteran senator from Delaware before he served two terms as President Barack Obama’s vice president. He’s weighing whether to make his third bid for the Democratic nomination; 53 percent said they would be excited about that, while 24 percent urged him not to run.

I don't like the term "mysterious" in reports - it sounds incredulous


But the ruling also still leaves many important aspects of the fight shielded from public view, including the kind of work done by the company, the name of the country that owns the firm and just what information is being sought. The order also offers no direct confirmation that the matter involves Mueller’s team.

#California prepares for general election in 2020


It’s fueled by perceptions both inside and outside the state that California’s brand of unapologetic progressivism has moved into the mainstream of the party after years of being dismissed nationally as a zany laboratory for far-left dreamers.

Doesn't sound like something to complain about, I must admit. I like California, although it was once governed by an Austrian whose most famous role was as a murderous cyborg with a southern Bavarian accent.

“For the first time in a major way, Latinos have a real opportunity to play a huge role in deciding early who the Democratic nominee will be,” de León said of the early maneuvering. “Midwest and East Coast candidates will be forced to brush up on their high school Spanish very quickly. West Coast and Southwestern candidates can have an advantage if they play it right — but it’s not automatic.”

#Senate about to read the report on Russian trolls colluding general election 2016


"The first objective of the Russians was to sow doubt, discord and discontent in this country, and they've succeeded to it fairly well -- capitalizing and exploiting the polarization and divisiveness in this country," Clapper said.

"They had messages for everybody in the campaign, whether it was Black Lives Matter, white supremacists, gun control advocates, Second Amendment advocates," he said. "The Russians are always looking for issues to exploit to their advantage."

Good to know that we finally have a report stating the same thing that every regular internet frequenter could have told you if he didn't jump upon the #Trump train already. But well, the senate relies on verified data, so that was merely a formula necessary to seal everything.

Sri Lanka's president Mahinda #Rajapaksa resigns


The feud put the country on the path towards a government shutdown with parliament unable to pass spending for 2019 as legislators clashed on the chamber floor - throwing chairs, books, and chilli paste - over who should remain the country's prime minister.

It kind of reminds me of the clashes they fought in the parliament in the Kosovo, in which someone threw a tear gas bomb, which led to the parliament's debate's delay, since the people could no longer breathe. I didn't expect something like this to happen in a country which I thought was stable, after it overcame its riots of the past. Seems to be that this presidency ended abruptly as well, albeit not unexpected.

Joe #Biden most preferred #Democrat, Bernie #Sanders runner-up


Outgoing Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who lost a Senate race last month, is in third place, at 11 percent. Slightly behind him are Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth #Warren at 8 percent, and California Sen. Kamala #Harris at 5 percent.

In the end, Beto O'Rourke might be a little bit too progressive, too idealist, without a major hinge of realism. This is where Bernie Sanders is a bit ahead, and Joe Biden is a man of experience, he has a long time of working as a politician. I don't know how much this applies to Mr. Sanders, he is a classical Socialist, if you want to call it like this.

Barnabé Kikaya bin Karubi, a presidential adviser, blamed unidentified “criminals“ for the blaze, which destroyed about 7,000 of the 10,000 voting machines due to be used in the capital, Kinshasa, but said preparations for the 23 December election were continuing.

Let's start the blame game again - which political party's sympathisers have ignited the voting machines so that the elections can't start as it was planned? I would say that those arsonists belong to one of the ruling parties, because they feared that their preferred party would not be elected again.

New era is dawning in #Sweden


Parliament voted 200 to 116 against giving Lofven, currently caretaker prime minister, a new term. It had already voted once for Lofven's ouster in a mandatory test, but has also rejected centre-right leader Ulf Kristersson as prime minister, leaving the way forward unclear.

Well, it is obvious that they don't want to have him there anymore, the time of the ultra-liberal Swedish country has ended. But unlike in Germany, they didn't let their long-time country leader go peacefully, but ousted him with a whacking vote. I hope this vote is not going to put this country in a deadly gridlock for months, but is cleared soon. Good luck, Sweden!

More text messages between #Strzok and #Page revealed


Page and Strzok became scapegoats to some on the right after it was revealed that the two exchanged text messages critical of Drumpf during the campaign, including at a time when they were part of the team investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email service while she was secretary of state. Drumpf and his allies have assailed Page’s and Strzok’s involvement in the investigations into Clinton and Drumpf as proof that the agencies are biased against him.

It's not biased when it is against an autocrat, which Donnie is, no matter how much the right-winged snowflakes cry about it. Agencies have to lean against an autocrat, it's called common sense, we have learnt from different dictatorships throughout the time.

Meanwhile, three Democratic senators, Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Cory Booker of New Jersey, and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg were each selected by about 3 percent of members.

Oblivious elections - part III: #Armenia


#Pashinyan’s party is expected to get a majority in the new legislature, allowing him to push ahead with his campaign to reshape the South Caucasus nation’s political landscape and spark an “economic revolution”.
Last week, Pashinyan – who is acting prime minister – promised “the best elections Armenia has ever seen”, without ballot-stuffing or voter intimidation.

At least there are examples of elections that don't end up in a massacre on the voters, such as it happens in Afghanistan, where the votes are still not counted to the end, including all the flaws of the election, the corruption that runs through it. In Armenia, this doesn't seem to have happened, although believing that no new crooks would fill the space is naive.

He mentioned China only three times: twice as a potential partner in fighting climate change and once as a potential partner in denuclearizing North Korea.

Well, the denuclearisation is not going to happen in the near future, as long as you don't come up with a working plan on denuclearising N Korea. Also, telling us that China was an apparent partner in fighting climate change is a ridiculty of an unmeasurable scale. China is one of the greatest polluters of this planet, constantly building further coal plants. How would you tell them that they had to build fewer of them, and instead relying on renewable energies? Neither you, nor us have got any measurements against them, because they would cause a decrease of our luxury, something no-one is ready to give up on.

But some #Drumpf advisers, primarily outside the White House, have suggested to him that while Mr. Pence remains loyal, he may have used up his utility.

Just imagine the pseudo-Christian mysogynist would fall out of the ticket and be replaced by someone else. The irony would reach a big time.

The New York Times: Is Mike Pence Loyal? Trump Is Asking, Despite His Recent Endorsement (By MAGGIE HABERMAN and KATIE ROGERS)

 

Another individual disclosed: Jerome Corsi


Investigators have focused heavily on the question of whether Mr. Stone, who served briefly as a Trump campaign adviser and maintained contact with top campaign officials, knew where WikiLeaks got the stolen emails and how it planned to use them. Mr. Stone has said he was only boasting during the campaign when he claimed to be in touch with Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, about the purloined documents.

Well, but now, you're caught by Mr. Mueller and will be indictedd. Poor boy, your bragging had an aftermath reserved for you.
Regarding the rest of the article, he deserved it. You don't betray others via WikiLeaks, and declassify some of them even more, and don't have to face any trial.

The Golden Girls of the Dem party


The two septuagenarians — Biden will be 77 on Election Day, 2020, and Sanders will be 79 — are the only two prospective candidates to garner double-digit support. The third-place candidate is Rep. Beto O’Rourke (R-Texas), who built national name-recognition through his losing Senate bid last week, with 8 percent.

We're doomed. But seriously, we need to nominate Beto O'Rourke and Bernie Sanders for 2020, they could possibly defeat the moron in-chief. And with Beto O'Rourke, you even had a relatively younger candidate who could embrace the liberal progressive forces of this nation. You know you need them, to radically reshape the United States. Do it or you lose my confidence.

Ojeda, a fiery Democrat who voted for Donald Trump before admitting he regretted it, predicted in his concession speech Tuesday: “Make no mistake about it! You’re going to know my name!”

Now, is this a warning or his appearance once the next general election is going to take place? Because this could also be the last phrase to hear before an active shooter is about to enter a public place and trigger his gun. Anyway, I wish him good luck and many votes in 2020.
