Just occurred to me that the shutdown of the US government is also shutting down the IRS which means the House can't get Trump's tax returns.  Now suddenly the absurd wall makes sense. 

 

The shutdown is also helping Russia destroy the economic power of the US....And now we find that Trump is being investigated by the FBI for possible treason by aiding the Russians to undermine the US.

 

Perhaps the Dems should offer Trump 5 billion for his tax returns.....That should shut him up.

CANDELARIA DE LA FRONTERA, El Salvador, Jan 2 2019 (IPS) - As he milks his cow, Salvadoran Gilberto Gomez laments that poor harvests, due to excessive rain or drought, practically forced his three children to leave the country and undertake the risky journey, as undocumented migrants, to the United States.

Gómez, 67, lives in La Colmena, in the municipality of Candelaria de la Frontera, in the western Salvadoran department of Santa Ana.

The small hamlet is located in the so-called Dry Corridor of Central America, a vast area that crosses much of the isthmus, but whose extreme weather especially affects crops in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

INDIGENOUS RIGHTS

Indigenous People, the First Victims of Brazil’s New Far-Right Government

"We are fighting for the demarcation of our territory," reads a banner in a march of indigenous women who came to Rio de Janeiro from the communities of the 305 native peoples of Brazil, to demand respect for the rights recognised by the constitution, which far-right President Jair Bolsonaro began to ignore as soon as he was sworn in.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Jan 10 2019 (IPS) - “We have already been decimated and subjected, and we have been victims of the integrationist policy of governments and the national state,” said indigenous leaders, as they rejected the new Brazilian government’s proposals and measures focusing on indigenous peoples.

In an open letter to President Jair Bolsonaro, leaders of the Aruak, Baniwa and Apurinã peoples, who live in the watersheds of the Negro and Purus rivers in Brazil’s northwestern Amazon jungle region, protested against the decree that now puts indigenous lands under the Ministry of Agriculture, which manages interests that run counter to those of native peoples.

Indigenous people are likely to present the strongest resistance to the offensive of Brazil’s new far-right government, which took office on Jan. 1 and whose first measures roll back progress made over the past three decades in favor of the 305 indigenous peoples registered in this country.

Iran, Huawei and Samsung PDF Print E-mail

Found this article on google search.   It is from the Financial Tribune which appears to be an Iranian based news outlet.  As such it may be 100% propaganda.  The article needs to be verified with an independant investigation by someone with more resources than I have. 

The article suggests that both Samsung and Huawei have a substancial investment in Iran.   If true the question arises "Why is Huawei being singled out?" which leads to China's assertion that the attack on Huawei is all about competition and the inability of other providers to compete with Huawei.   Any way here is the Financial Tribune article.

A People’s Submission on Canada, Climate Change and the Copenhagen Accord Ecosocialism or barbararism
There is no third way
 
Posted on January 29, 2010
Climate and Capitalism readers are sharply critical of this letter and statement, sent on January 28, from Climate Action Network Canada, to Yvo de Boer, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change
 
Dear Mr. de Boer,
On behalf of the people of Canada, we are making a “Peoples Submission” to the Copenhagen Accord. We realize it is exceptional for you to receive a national submission through a nongovernmental organization. However, the present circumstance in Canada is exceptional. The views and aspiration of the majority of Canadians are not reflected in the views and actions of the present government.
The Canadian people have been very clear in their continuing support for the Kyoto Protocol and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. We also support Canada adopting science based emission targets and contributing our fair share to a mitigation and adaptation fund.
We want the international community to know Canadians will one day live up to our obligations.
Please accept this “Peoples Submission” as an indication of the real values and views of Canadians.
Sincerely,
Graham Saul
Executive Director
Climate Action Network / Réseau action climat Canada
