SAMSON TUSIIME: The #KampalaGeopolitics panel list shows media doesn't have to get talking points & sound bites from same people every damn time. And most importantly, there are enough QUALIFIED #women not to have manels on ANY topic. #Namate

How Extinction Rebellion 168 climate change zealots - incl. a baronet's Cambridge-educated granddaughter - are paid £400 a week to bring mayhem to our streets. Tory MP called on #HMRC to launch an immediate investigation into the XR tax affairs
mol.im/a/7566515
/1.
Paid XR activists who call for collective guilt & punitive #taxes on the western #taxpayer are enabling new breed of green capitalism, that make select few fabulously rich, while the rest of us choke down meatless hamburgers & pay our #politicians to tax us into oblivion
/2.
Climate Mobilization’s call to action has also managed to unite leftists & anti-capitalists with the global elite. Extinction Rebellion’s call for “net zero” atmospheric carbon is shared by The World Bank, and a host of neoliberal think-tanks & financiers

1/6 This scene from #LadyandtheTramp inspired 2 stanzas from my #poem "#Sightseeing" (excerpted here), which I discussed w @SsesangaDennis during the lastest #PoetsandMuses episode (soundcloud.com/poetsandmuses/…).
While researching 4 the @Disney image, I learned abt #WillieIto,
2/6 a survivor of the #internmentofJapaneseAmericans during #WWII, who drew this #iconicspaghettikissingscene (abc7.com/entertainment/…).
While the film contains its own issues in its #negativeportrayalsofimmigrants "Willie said he always felt safe here with his fellow artists -

Incoming #EU High Rep @JosepBorrellF’s first speech gave us a glimpse of #EUdiplomacy’s next 5 years. #EPhearings2019

His endorsement by the Parliament was never in doubt. Still, Borrell’s energetic speech went further than expected.

👇THREAD:

twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1…
2/ Borrell shared views with his trademark outspoken tone and all the famed sides of his character:

☞ The mature #EU integration enthusiast and former European Parliament President

☞ The responsible internationalist development buff

☞ The assertive Spanish foreign minister
3/ Borrell raised a shield in defence of the rule-based multilateral order, pointing to Ukraine as evidence of the dangers ahead if it keeps unraveling.

The sub-text: ‘I am not just talking about Moscow being unilateral, Mr Trump’.

THE NEW, NEW WORLD ORDER

It appears the West would rather have no world than a world they can no longer control.

Losing dominance is more than western power-junkies can bear it seems.

This is the primary cause of their rabid & deeply irresponsible behavior of recent years.
THE NEW, NEW WORLD ORDER

China’s ‘Belt & Road’ initiative will change our world forever.

The East is already producing high end products at the least cost.

This will become an ever increasing trend attracting immense investment & providing superb products at affordable prices.
THE NEW, NEW WORLD ORDER

‘The Belt and Road Initiative is a global development strategy adopted by the Chinese government involving infrastructure development & investments in 152 countries & international organizations in #Asia #Europe #Africa the #MiddleEast & the #Americas.’

1. Hilo informativo [muy largo] sobre una #inmigración masiva cuyos efectos están afectando especialmente a #Europa.

Hay informaciones que considero esenciales para comprender la dimensión del fenómeno y algunos de sus efectos.

Empiezo. 👇🏻

#Multiculturalismo
2. Tras caer la URSS en 1989, la desestabilización de África causó la caída de aquellos regímenes que eran sostenidos o recibían influencia de uno de los dos bloques hegemónicos: Estados Unidos o la URSS.
3. Es precisamente en ese propicio --y anárquico--  vacío donde florecieron la delincuencia, primero, y el #yihadismo terrorista más adelante.

Our #African rulers don't just want unseemly opulence on earth while in power; many of them also apparently enjoy marbled sepulchres for their abode in the hereafter. Mobutu Sense Seko, who's buried in far-away Morocco resides in one. He's in good company though...
Two pioneers of the Independence struggle, Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah in Accra & Mzee Jomo Kenyatta in Nairobi, rest in pretty "befitting" surroundings. But, you may say their mausoleums are also fitting national monuments for founders of their respective countries.
Like Nkrumah & Jomo Kenyatta, Mgwazi, Dr. Hastings Kamuzu Banda led his country, Malawi, to Independence & died outside his country in Johannesburg, South Africa. This necro-palace is his most lasting legacy it seems.

Is this our legacy for future generations😠?
Is money more important than conserving nature😡?

[1] Gen James Logan Jones Sr:
* #ObserverGroup
* #Africa / Beligan Congo before WW2
Son James L Jones Jr. NSA director for Obama
* Brother had Robert S Mueller III appointed as his aide in Vietnam

How ?

Railroad money

One grandfather (maternal) was William M Kenefick
[2] Grandmother (maternal) was also big RR money - The WIlliam B Strang family

Alice Truesdale (wife of RS Mueller II, mother of RS Mueller III) is the family of the Lackawanna, and also Baltimore and Ohio

These families undoubtedly have worked together

[2] On the father side, Charles Vernon Jones was in mining - Zinc, Nickel, Lead, and mostly in Kansas/Missouri/Oklahoma (the "Tri-State" of Lead, if you will).

Interesting Eagle-Picher Corp connections here (Ontario Smelting), but not the head-jarring wealth of Kenefick/Strang

#PoliticalKarma has a brutal sense of humour & #Africa’s history offers lessons for powerful men who want to get ahead by retarding the legal process - those who degrade it often end up in need of it, usually to save them against their own collaborators.

In many parts of the continent, the #RuleOfLaw is undergoing chastening times, with ruling parties inventing convenient devices to eliminate uncertainties of democratic competition, kettle their opponents (both real and imagined), disrupt vocal civics & enable abuse of power.
Kenya's Chief Justice narrowly survived a suspicious car crash in Dec 2018. The next month, #Nigeria's ruling party decapitated the Chief Justice's tenure on the eve of an election. Gabon just suspended judge who agreed to hear petition on medical certification for @PresidentABO

The #China/ #SinoAfrica containment narrative is not useful for analyzing #Japan-#Africa development relations. Using a tug-of-war language to paint a🇨🇳-🇯🇵 standoff shows how much the🇺🇸- 🇨🇳rivalry colors #Africa's partnerships. 🇯🇵's #TICAD7 is a very different product from #FOCAC
#TICAD started in 1993, many moons before #FOCAC. #Japan did get inspired by #China's forum model and changed from meeting every 5 years to now every 3. TICAD also recently started alternating between #Japan and an #Africa|n hosts (like FOCAC) but
Using a zero-sum narrative doesn't work simply because there's a lot of room for #TICAD, #FOCAC, #India, #Russia.. What it shows tho is that the Forum Model is a favored #diplomacy w/ #Africa platform. Hosting public officials, organizing banquets, seminars, building connections

Sulla vicenda #ONG, Salvini si è già giocato quel poco di reputazione che gli restava NON avendo promosso NULLA DI SISTEMICO per combattere la TRATTA di #migranti dall'#Africa in #Europa (paolobarnard.info/intervento_mos…). Nella prossima #austerity non ci sarà un nero. Ci sarà #Salvini.
