ATENTADO EXPLOSIVO EN ACADEMIA DE POLICÍA EN COLOMBIA.

Nueve muertos y más de 60 heridos dejo el jueves la explosión de un coche bomba en una academia de policía en Bogotá, la capital colombiana.  Ninguna organización armada se atribuyó de inmediato el atentado.

El fiscal general de la Nación, Néstor Humberto Rodríguez, dijo que se identificó al hombre que detono una camioneta cargada con 80 kilos de explosivos en la Escuela de Oficiales General Francisco de Paula Santander.

El presidente de Colombia, Iván Duque, ordenó a las fuerzas armadas localizar a autores intelectuales del ataque.

El atentado ha generado la condena nacional e internacional y ocurre cuando se incrementan los asesinatos de líderes sociales principalmente en los departamentos de Cauca, Antioquia, Valle del Cauca, Norte de Santander, Putumayo y Nariño.

El año pasado fueron asesinados más de 226 líderes sociales y defensores de Derechos Humanos según el Instituto de Estudios para el Desarrollo y la Paz y en 2019 la tendencia es mayor.

El jueves la organización Comunidad de Paz denuncio el asesinato a manos de paramilitares del joven campesino Déimer Úsuga en San José de Apartado.

El cuerpo apareció frente a la Base Militar del Ejército en la zona rural, del Urabá Antioqueño, en el norte de Colombia.

La organización recordó volvió a denunciar que en la región hay control paramilitar y las autoridades no hacen nada para terminar la violencia.

Desde que se firmó el Acuerdo de Paz en 2016 entre las Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia y el gobierno más de 430 líderes sociales han sido asesinados.

ALTA COMISIONADA DE LA ONU PARA DERECHOS HUMANOS PIDE A SUDAN PERMITIR PROTESTAS PACIFICAS.

La Alta Comisionada de la ONU para los Derechos Humanos ,Michelle Bachelet ha pedido al Gobierno de Sudán que proteja los derechos de libertad de expresión y reunión pacífica de los manifestantes que desde hace varias semanas están protestando contra las políticas del Ejecutivo.

LEGISLADORA ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ DENUNCIA QUE CIERRE DEL GOBIERNO DE EEUU NO SOLO AFECTA A TRABAJADORES Y CIUDADANOS SINO A LA DEMOCRACIA MISMA.

La legisladora más joven de EEUU, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, uso su primer discurso en Congreso para  destacar el grave daño financiero y la inseguridad que el cierre del gobierno ha causado a millones de ciudadanos.

La Representante demócrata por el Bronx, criticó al presidente Trump por mantener como rehenes, dijo, a 800 mil trabajadores que no han recibido un salario y cito el caso de miles de controladores de tráfico aéreo que laboran sin salario a pesar de que tienen en sus manos la vida de miles de personas.

Sostuvo que el largo tiempo en que el gobierno no ha sido financiado es emblemático de una crisis sistémica de la democracia.

“En realidad no se trata de un muro, no se trata de la frontera, y ciertamente no se trata del bienestar de los estadounidenses de todos los días”, lo que ha ocasionado la paralización del gobierno que está a punto de cumplir un mes.  “La verdad es que este cierre es sobre la erosión de la democracia estadounidense y la subversión de nuestras normas gubernamentales más básicas”. “No es normal cerrar el gobierno cuando no obtenemos lo que queremos. No es normal que los servidores públicos huyan y se oculten del público al que sirven”, declaró la congresista de origen puertorriqueño, refiriéndose al líder de la mayoría del Senado Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) que se niega a convocar a una sesión. “Y ciertamente no es normal matar de hambre a las personas a las que servimos por una propuesta que es tremendamente impopular entre los estadounidenses”, declaro Ocasio Cortez.

La paralización parcial del gobierno estadounidense está a punto de cumplir un mes y el presidente de EEUU ha advertido que no cederá hasta que los demócratas acepten financiar el muro en el presupuesto 2019.

AMNISTIA INTERNACIONAL PIDE A CONGRESO MEXICANO NO APROBAR LA CREACION DE LA GUARDIA NACIONAL.

Amnistía Internacional entrego al congreso mexicano un documento donde cuestiona la creación de la Guardia Nacional, cuyo proyecto ya fue aprobado por la Cámara de Diputados y el uso de las fuerzas armadas en labores de seguridad pública.

De acuerdo a un comunicado de AI, la Guardia Nacional, conformada por elementos de la Marina y del Ejército mexicano, contradice al derecho internacional y sólo debe accederse a este plan en casos excepcionales, ya que el “Estado debe limitar al máximo el uso de las fuerzas armadas”.

Amnistía recomienda al Congreso desistir de la creación de la Guardia Nacional.

En tanto el presidente de México, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, dijo el jueves que no está conforme con las modificaciones que hicieron los diputados al proyecto porque no permite la participación de las fuerzas armadas en seguridad en tanto se conforma la Guardia nacional.

DENUNCIAN VIOLENCIA PARAMILITAR DE PRESIDENTE MUNICIPAL DE MORENA EN AMATAN- CHIAPAS.

La madrugada del jueves paramilitares vinculados al presidente municipal de Amatan, Chiapas, Manuel de Jesús Carpio Mayorga, del partido Morena, atacaron a pobladores de esa comunidad que lo desconocen.

Asi lo denuncio la Coordinadora Nacional Plan de Ayala Movimiento Nacional (CNPA-MN) frente a la secretaria de gobernación en la ciudad de Mexico.

Informaron que los paramilitares llegaron a la cabecera municipal de Amatan golpeando y disparando contra integrantes del Movimiento por la Paz, la Justicia y el Bien Común en Amatán que desconocen a Carpio Mayorga que pretende ocupar por tercera vez la presidencia.

En conferencia de prensa representantes de la CNPA-MN y otras organizaciones sociales sostuvieron que se encuentran desaparecidos Noe Jimenez Pablo, el cual también fue herido de bala y Héctor Cruz Hernández.

Asimismo, se desconoce el paradero de otras 50 personas y un grupo de 8 mujeres y 2 menores de edad están retenidos en el Palacio Municipal de Amatán.

Carpio Mayorga cuenta con antecedentes penales y estuvo encarcelado por corrupción y enriquecimiento ilícito con dinero público.

El abogado Sandino Rivero dijo que bajo el cobijo de los partidos PRI, Verde Ecologista y ahora Morena, Manuel de Jesus Carpio Mayorga y su hermano Wilbert han mantenido por años un cacicazgo en Amatan.

Representantes de la CNPA-MN y otras organizaciones sociales demandaron al presidente Andrés Manuel López Obrador y a la Secretaría de Gobernación, Olga Sánchez Cordero, poner fin a la violencia paramilitar, respetar la voluntad de la población de Amatan o convocar a nuevas elecciones.

United States Doesn’t Even Make Top 20 on Global Democracy Index

Nation classified “flawed democracy”

By Andrea Germanos

January 17, 2019 “Information Clearing House –     A new index released this week offers a sobering look at how democracy is faring in the United States.

According to the 2018 edition of The Economist Intelligence Unit’s Democracy Index, the U.S. doesn’t even make the list of top 20—its demonstrably “flawed democracy” notching it the 25th spot.

The ranking is based on 60 indicators spanning five interrelated categories: electoral process and pluralism; civil liberties; the functioning of government; political participation; and political culture. Each category gets a 0-10 score, with the final score being the average of those five.

Topping out the index are Norway, Iceland, Sweden, New Zealand, and Denmark. They are each declared “full democracies,” as their scores, all above 9.22, were easily above the 8.2 threshold. With a final score of 7.96, the United States, in contrast, earned the “flawed democracy” label. The country’s highest score was 8.22, which it earned back in 2006 and again in 2008.

North America still holds the claim for the highest average score of any region, but that’s thanks to Canada’s 9.15, which landed it the number 6 spot overall. Twenty countries (12 percent) were designated as full democracies, 14 of which are located in Western Europe.

Rounding out the bottom of the list, meanwhile, are Chad, the Central African Republican, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Syria, and North Korea, with scores identifying them as “authoritarian regimes.”

In the United States, according to the analysis:

Most of the major policy actions in 2018—including the escalation of the trade war with China; diplomatic engagement with North Korea; and extensive deregulation of the energy, mining, and automotive industries—have not required congressional approval. Moreover, [President Donald] Trump has repeatedly called into question the independence and competence of the U.S. judicial system with regard to the ongoing federal investigation, led by Robert Mueller, into potential ties between Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia, and various courts’ efforts to block some of his policy orders, particularly regarding immigration. Although we expect the U.S. system of checks and balances to remain intact, this internal conflict risks further undermining public confidence in institutions. As a result, the score for political culture declined in the 2018 index.

The analysis also found that the political participation category overall is on the rise, halting the three-year trend of a decline in the Democracy Index. For that, thanks go to women. From the new report:

In fact, in the past decade, of all 60 indicators in the Democracy Index, women’s political participation has improved more than any other single indicator in our model. Formal and informal barriers to women’s political participation, including discriminatory laws and socioeconomic obstacles, are gradually being knocked down.

[…] In perhaps the most notable advance in women’s participation in 2018, quotas proved unnecessary; in the wake of the U.S. mid-term election in November 2018, participation of women in Congress reached an all-time high of 20.3 percent. This is just above the top threshold in our model, which sits at just 20 percent, reflecting the historical reality of extremely limited female legislative representation.

Still, there’s not cause for breaking out the champagne just yet. While the index didn’t decline overall, it didn’t improve either.  In addition, the analysis found that global disillusionment with the functioning of government continued as did a decline in civil liberties.

Ray McGovern: Russia-gate Evidence, Please

Was former FBI Director James Comey pulling a Hoover on Trump to keep him in line? asks Ray McGovern.

By Ray McGovern

January 17, 2019 “Information Clearing House –     For those interested in evidence — or the lack of it— regarding collusion between Russia and the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, we can thank the usual Russia-gate promoters at The New York Times and CNN for inadvertently filling in some gaps in recent days.

Image result for PHOTOS OF DONALD TRUMP

Stooping to a new low, Friday’s Times headline screamed: “F.B.I. Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia.” The second paragraph noted that FBI agents “sought to determine whether Mr. Trump was knowingly working for Russia or had unwittingly fallen under Moscow’s influence.”

Trump had been calling for better relations with Russia during his presidential campaign. As journalist Michael Tracy tweeted on Sunday, the Times report made it “not a stretch to say: the FBI criminally investigating Trump on the basis of the ‘national security threat’ he allegedly poses, with the ‘threat’ being his perceived policy preferences re: Russia, could constitute literal criminalization of deviation from foreign policy consensus.”

On Monday night CNN talking heads, like former House Intelligence Committee chair Mike Rogers, were expressing wistful hope that the FBI had more tangible evidence than Trump’s public statements to justify such an investigation. Meanwhile, they would withhold judgment regarding the Bureau’s highly unusual step.

Evidence?

NYT readers had to get down to paragraph 9 to read: “No evidence has emerged publicly that Mr. Trump was secretly in contact with or took direction from Russian government officials.” Four paragraphs later, the Times’ writers noted that, “A vigorous debate has taken shape among former law enforcement officials … over whether FBI investigators overreacted.”

That was what Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy was wondering when he grilled former CIA director John Brennan on May 23, 2017 on what evidence he had provided to the FBI to catalyze its investigation of Trump-Russia collusion.

Brennan replied: “I don’t do evidence.”

The best Brennan could do was repeat the substance of a clearly well-rehearsed statement: “I encountered and am aware of information and intelligence that revealed contacts and interactions between Russian officials and U.S. persons involved in the Trump campaign … that required further investigation by the Bureau to determine whether or not U.S. persons were actively conspiring, colluding with Russian officials.”

That was it.

CNN joined the piling on Monday, quoting former FBI General Counsel James Baker in closed-door Congressional testimony to the effect that FBI officials were weighing “whether Trump was acting at the behest of [the Russians] and somehow following directions, somehow executing their will.” The problem is CNN also noted that Lisa Page, counsel to then FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe, testified that there had been “indecision in the Bureau as to whether there was sufficient predication to open [the investigation].’ “Predication” is another word for evidence.

Within hours of Comey’s firing on May 9, 2017, Page’s boyfriend and a top FBI counterintelligence official, Peter Strzok texted her: “We need to open the case we’ve been waiting on now while Andy [McCabe] is acting [director].” After all, if Trump were bold enough, he could have appointed a new FBI director and who knew what might happen then. When Page appeared before Congress, she was reportedly asked what McCabe meant. She confirmed that his text was related to the Russia investigation into potential collusion.

Comey v. Trump Goes Back to Jan. 6, 2017

The Times and CNN, however unintentionally, have shed light on what ensued after Trump finally fired Comey. Apparently, it finally dawned on Trump that, on Jan. 6, 2017, Comey had treated him to thetime-honored initiation-rite-for-presidents-elect — with rubrics designed by former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.

Image result for PHOTOS OF  J EDGAR HOOVER FORMER BURO GUY

It seems then-FBI Director James Comey rendered a good impersonation of Hoover that day when he briefed President-elect Trump on the scurrilous “Steele dossier” that the FBI had assembled on Trump. Excerpts from an interview Trump gave to the Times(below) after the firing throw light on what Trump says was at least part of his motivation to dump Comey.

To dramatize the sensitivity of the dossier, Comey asked then-National Intelligence Director James Clapper and the heads of the CIA and NSA to depart the room at the Trump Tower, leaving Comey alone with the President-elect. The Gang of Four had already briefed Trump on the evidence-impoverished “Intelligence Community Assessment.” That “assessment” alleged that Putin himself ordered his minions to help Trump win. The dossier had been leaked to the media, which withheld it but Buzzfeed published it on Jan. 10.?

‘This Russia Thing’

Evidently, it took Trump four months to fully realize he was being played, and that he couldn’t expect the “loyalty” he is said to have asked of Comey. So Trump fired Comey on May 9. Two days later he told NBC’s Lester Holt:

“When I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said, ‘You know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made-up story, it’s an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should’ve won.’”

The mainstream media and other Russia-gater aficionados immediately seized on “this Russian thing” as proof that Trump was trying to obstruct the investigation of alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. However, in the Holt interview Trump appeared to be reflecting on Comey’s J. Edgar Hoover-style, one-on-one gambit alone in the room with Trump.

Would Comey really do a thing like that? Was the former FBI director protesting too much in his June 2017 testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee when he insisted he’d tried to make it clear to Trump that briefing him on the unverified but scurrilous information in the dossier wasn’t intended to be threatening. It tool a few months but it seems Trump figured out what he thought Comey was up to.

Trump to NYT: ‘Leverage’ (aka Blackmail)

In a long Oval Office interview with the Times on July 19, 2017, Trump said he thought Comey was trying to hold the dossier over his head.

“…Look what they did to me with Russia, and it was totally phony stuff. … the dossier … Now, that was totally made-up stuff,” Trump said. “I went there [to Moscow] for one day for the Miss Universe contest, I turned around, I went back. It was so disgraceful. It was so disgraceful.

Image result for PHOTOS OF MISS UNIVERSE PAGEANT IN RUSSIA

“When he [James B. Comey] brought it [the dossier] to me, I said this is really made-up junk. I didn’t think about anything. I just thought about, man, this is such a phony deal. … I said, this is — honestly, it was so wrong, and they didn’t know I was just there for a very short period of time. It was so wrong, and I was with groups of people. It was so wrong that I really didn’t, I didn’t think about motive. I didn’t know what to think other than, this is really phony stuff.”

The dossier, paid for by the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign and compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, relates a tale of Trump allegedly cavorting with prostitutes, who supposedly urinated on each other before the same bed the Obamas had slept in at the Moscow Ritz-Carlton hotel. [On February 6, 2018, The Washington Post reported that that part of the dossier was written Cody Shearer, a long-time Clinton operative and passed it along to Steele. Shearer ignored a request for comment from Consortium News. [Shearer had been a Consortium advisory board member who was asked to resign and left the board.]

Image result for PHOTOS OF THE WASHINGTON POST

Trump told the Times: “I think [Comey] shared it so that I would — because the other three people [Clapper, Brennan, and Rogers] left, and he showed it to me. … So anyway, in my opinion, he shared it so that I would think he had it out there. … As leverage.

“Yeah, I think so. In retrospect. In retrospect. You know, when he wrote me the letter, he said, ‘You have every right to fire me,’ blah blah blah. Right? He said, ‘You have every right to fire me.’ I said, that’s a very strange — you know, over the years, I’ve hired a lot of people, I’ve fired a lot of people. Nobody has ever written me a letter back that you have every right to fire me.”

McGovern lays out more details during a 12-minute interview on Jan. 10 with Tyrel Ventura of “Watching the Hawks.”

On Easter Sunday morning in 1916 a small group of Irish volunteers took possession of the G.P.O in Dublin and so began the Easter rising.
It was a force of about 150 men and women who took on the might of The British Empere. Over 20,000 British troops were in or around Dublin at the time.

A huge crowd gathered at Sackville St.
, now O’Connell Street and listened to Padraic Pearse read the proclamation of The Irish Republic, ”Irishmen and Irish women in the name of God and the dead generations from which she receives her old tradition of nationhood,,,,,,,,

Seven men signed the document , they were Thomas Clarke, Sean McDiarmada Thomas McDonagh Ph Pearse Eamonn Ceannt James Connolly and Joseph Plunket.
The chrowd scattered when the 5th lancers rode in among them to attack the G.P.O. Shots fired and the lancers dispersed, 10 of them fell.

The crowd assembled again to watch the raising of the flag, the Irish Tri Colour of The Irish Republic over the G.P.O. James Connolly and a few of the officers came out to look at the flag as it waved up there against the sky.
