That prediction/lie didn’t work out too well.
On Wednesday, Todd D. Stern, the United States special envoy for climate change, who was in Beijing for talks, said that some Chinese officials had expressed concern about whether President Obama’s successor would ensure that the United States was committed to the global climate accord reached in Paris in December.
Mr. Stern said he had tried to reassure the officials. “I think it would be highly surprising to me if anybody elected were to try to pull the United States out of that,” he said at a news briefing.
“On June 1, 2017, United States President Donald Trump announced that the U.S. would cease all participation in the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change”
As many journalists and others have been saying for a decade, the US was seeking Assange to charge him with an anti-Constitutional law that threatens investigative journalists around the world.
Many people don’t like Assange, for a variety of reasons, some of them real, and some of them concocted by the US smear campaign run against him. They shouldn’t let their hate blind them as to the real threat.
Assange shared the scoops with newspapers, who are now also at risk of being charged with spying, while they practice journalism like Assange clearly does.
Randy Rainbow updated this song, and it’s genius. Really.
It’s a crime against humanity that #BabyJails are not shut down in the USA. The extreme human rights abuses taking place each day are horrifying. Many medical staff are going to need to lose their license and go to jail to come close to delivering justice to the victims.
I once sat across a chair circle from this guy because he’s the MP for the area I grew up in. It doesn’t surprise me he’d defend and believe Trump over taking an opportunity to condemn the caging of children.
The WHCD has always included a roast, so long as I can remember back to the W Bush years. Colbert’s roast of Bush is among my most favourite moments in history.
Anyway, Michelle Wolf did a great job of holding truth to power in a funny way, and some in the Press are having none of it. One wants a “singed” roast, but not too burnt. Well sorry, but if the media was roasting the crooked politicians like their jobs dictate, then comedians could stick to the simple light roasts.
