Undercutting President Donald Trump's assertion that U.S. corporate taxes are too high—the justification for his and Republican leaders' pitches to lower the business tax rate—a new report finds that many profitable American companies pay far less than the 35 percent often cited by lobbyists and GOP officials.

It’s ‘Not Too Late’ for B.C. to Stop Site C ‘Disaster’: Ex-Premier Harcourt
• March 7, 2017
• Authors: Carol Linnitt @carollinnitt

British Columbia’s Liberal government, under investigation for alleged pay-to-play influence peddling and facing a general election in early May, should drop plans for its contentious and unneeded Site C hydroelectric dam, a former premier says in a video interview.

British Columbia’s Liberal government, under investigation for allegations of pay-to-play influence peddling and facing a general election in early May, should drop plans for its contentious and unneeded Site C hydroelectric dam on the Peace River in the province’s northeast, a former premier says in a video interview.
B.C. Hydro, a crown corporation, has begun land-clearing for the project, on the Peace River in the province’s northeast. But “the cost of dams worldwide over the last 70 years has averaged 90% over [initial estimates],” former premier Mike Harcourt told DeSmog.ca in an interview. “So you can assume Site C is going to cost, probably, $15 to $17 billion. I think economically it’s just not going to cut it.”

Harcourt points to the absence of any apparent demand in the province for the extra power the dam will produce. “Demand for electricity in B.C. has been flat over the last 11 years,” Harcourt said. “You don’t need it. Economically, you’re going to be bankrupting BC Hydro and seriously harming the credit of British Columbia.”

Altogether, the project “is going to be a disaster, economically, environmentally, culturally for First Nations,” the former premier charged.

Harcourt has also spoken out forcefully against Kinder Morgan’s proposed Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, warning that the federal government faces “insurrection” if it forces the line—approved by the National Energy Board in a sharply-criticized decision—on residents of the B.C. Lower Mainland. (B.C. Premier Christy Clark also approved the line in January.)

As for Site C, the planned dam “is 18 months into construction on what is projected to be an eight-year timeline,” DeSmog reports. “So far, a worker’s camp has been built and a small section of river valley has been cleared. Ultimately, more than 100 kilometres of river valley, including valuable farmland, will be cleared to make way for the dam’s reservoir.”

“It’s not too late” for the province to give up on the flawed hydro project, Harcourt asserted. “It’s never beyond the point of no return.”

Though the United Nations didn't officially adopt International Women's Day until 1975, the first Women's Day took place in New York City on February 28, 1909.

After the large Women`s rally which mostly countered Trumps militaristic`, xenophobic, misogynist behaviour, the mainstream media questioned: Well, what do women want?

ùùùùùùf

Perhaps Women wish to redefine security as “true security”

 

“True security exists when all are secure, through “common security” (Olof Palme, 1982) whose objectives could be extended to include but not limited to the following:

to achieve a state of peace, and disarmament; through  reallocation of military expenses and delegitimization of war; (ii) to promote and fully guarantee respect for human rights including  labour rights, civil and political rights, indigenous rights, social and cultural rights – right to food, to housing, to safe drinking water and sanitation , right to education and right to universally accessible not for profit health care system; (iii) to ensure the preservation, conservation and protection of the environment, the respect for the inherent worth of nature beyond human purpose, to reduce the ecological footprint and to move away from the current model of unsustainable and excessive overconsumption (iv) to enable socially equitable and environmentally sound employment, energy and transportation,

We believe this is the tip of the "their there" that will end the Trump Presidency.

Guardian:...

The White House has been accused of withholding information from Congress about whether Donald Trump or any of his campaign affiliates have ever received loans from a bank in Cyprus that is partly owned by a close ally of Russian president Vladimir Putin.

ROME, Feb 21 2017 (IPS) - Let us stop debating what newly-elected US President Trump is doing or might do and look at him in terms of historical importance. Put simply, Trump marks the end of an American cycle!

Like it or not, for the last two centuries the entire planet has been living in an Anglophone-dominated world. First there was Pax Britannica (from the beginning of the 19th century when Britain started building its colonial empire until the end of the Second World War, followed by the United States and Pax Americana with the building of the so-called West).

 

The United States emerged from the Second World War as the main winner and founder of what became the major international institutions – from the United Nations to the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) – with Europe reduced to the role of follower. In fact, under the Marshall Plan, the United States became the force behind the post-war reconstruction of Europe.
