Trumps Twitter messages have changed in recent weeks

Monday, June 25, 2018

Donald Trump has twittered 257 times so far this month. The messages are getting more and more bizarre.

The fact that Donald Trump’s messages on Twitter raise awareness are far from new. Ever since he was elected president, critics have targeted the smooth flow of outbreaks and controversial comments. But in recent times there has been a development, CNN writes.

The news channel claims that the activity on Trump’s Twitter account has escalated and become more and more strange. The president has shown himself from his controversial page several times earlier, including threatening nuclear war against North Korea.

Political reporter in CNN, Chris Cillizza, has been following a lot on Trump. Now he has analyzed recent updates.

Strange times

The CNN reporter now claims that Trump not only tweets more than before, but also makes it bizarre times of the day. In addition, in his posts he focuses much on the ongoing investigation of himself and the election, led by Robert Mueller.

Of the 22 Twitter messages Trump posted on Sunday, eight of them investigated the investigation and how the FBI handled the Hillary Clinton investigation. Six of them were accusations against the democrats.

The Trump archive reveals

On the website “trump Twitter archive” you can see all the Twitter messages the president has posted since 2009. There are also statistics about how many messages are posted and what they are about.

According to the website, the president tweeted 140 times in May last year. The same month in 2018, he twisted 237 times. So far in June, the president has tweeted 257 messages.

Sindre Beyer, adviser to Try Advertising Agency and former information director for the Labor Party, told Dagbladet that the president’s way of communicating breaks with most other politicians.

“He is confrontational and it is unfamiliar with people who have as much authority as the Trump has and who goes to personal attacks like he does. Not only was there a heated election campaign on the Twitter front, but it also continued after he entered the office; It’s a bit scary. The world does not need a higher conflict level, but it contributes to Trump, says Beyer.

– A whole new communication

The counselor thinks Trump deliberately tries to weaken the media and undermine their credibility – which, according to Beyer, he partly succeeds in. It is also former state secretary of Erna Solberg, now consultant at First House, Sigbjørn Aanes, agreed to.

“What we see is a brand new communication from a US leader. There are strong words and little nuances that he brings. Many are scared of the way he is on, and the tone he has, says Aanes.

Success despite criticism

Despite being both criticized and controversial, he believes Trump has succeeded in helping to manage the agenda as he wants, because many run after when he pronounces.

“But I would like to say that he gets less impact politically. He is not keen to build alliances, thus gaining more resistance and less support while weakening his own impetus in political cooperation, says the consultant, who believes everyone today must master social media.

“But the challenge when it comes to Trump is how he communicates and rhetoric,” said Aanes.

AP: Captors are subjected to torture and sexual assault in prisons run by the Emirates in Yemen

Sunday, June 24, 2018

The United Arab Emirates run several secret prisons in southern Yemen where hundreds of men are being tortured and subjected to sexual assault, according to AP.

Saturday they will be beaten up, Sunday they will be tortured and Monday is the break. The order will repeat the next three days, while Friday is the day of isolation.

This way, everyday life stands out for hundreds of Yemeni men who are held captive without law and sentenced by prisoners driven by United Arab Emirates south of Yemen.

The news agency published this week of drawings smuggled out of Beir Ahmed Prison in the port city of Aden, which documents various forms of abuse.

Sexual violence is usually used to force “confessions,” the cartoonist and six other prisoners tell the US news agency. None of them will appear with names because they fear reprisals.

The pictures show, among other things, a man hanging naked in chains while being exposed to electric shock. On another drawing, a man on the floor is surrounded by snuggling dogs while more people kick him. There are also drawings of anal rapes.

The secret prisons and the extensive use of torture were revealed by AP in June last year. Since then, the news agency has discovered that at least five prisons have been established in southern Yemen where security forces use sexual torture to break down prisons.

Many of the prisoners are suspected of belonging to al Qaeda or IS, but none of them are brought to trial.

According to eyewitnesses, the serious sexual assaults are being carried out by Yemeni prisoners on direct orders from officers from the Emirates. The sources say that some of the assaults are being filmed, that the prisoners are subjected to electrical shock to the genital organs, that stone is attached to the testicles, and that rapes are carried out with trawls and metal rods.

The only reaction from the Emirates comes from the country’s permanent UN delegation in Geneva, claiming that the country has never operated secret prisons in southern Yemen.

However, it is inconsistent with what Jemen’s Minister of Internal Affairs says. He claims that he has no authority over the prisons and that he must have permission from the Emirates to enter Aden.

Four of the five prisons where, according to Aps sources, sexual assault is in Aden. One of them is also on a military base which serves as the headquarters of the Emirates military forces in Yemen.

In this prison, US officers must have been observed with Colombian mercenaries. Even though Americans in uniform have not participated directly in the torture, they must either have heard the cries or seen the brands, according to Aps sources.

“The Americans use the Emirates to do the dirty job,” said an official at Riyan Prison in Mukalla.

Lawlessness and poverty drive the Middle American people away

Sunday, June 24, 2018

Thousands of Middle American families flee in desperation from violent gangs and poverty, but in the United States they no longer find security.

The night approached El Salvador’s capital, San Salvador and Ernesto Pena, waiting for a bus that never arrived.

Throughout the day he had delivered rice and oil to street vendors, but he had to get home before the curfew the criminal bands had introduced to the poor district where he lives.

For years, he and his wife have been dreaming of a safer future in the north, together with the eight-year-old son.

Scary photos

The scary photos from the United States last week, of children who were forced from the parents on the border, have been given the 30-year-old to reassess the plan.

“We have always planned to leave, but have not been able to scrape enough money,” says Pena, who looks nervous about watching watchmakers fear that band members will see that he is talking to a journalist.

war zones

Throughout Central America, the lawlessness is about to take over, and desperate parents see no way other than fleeing north with the children.

Most people who fly to the United States come from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

Rival gangs have made cities like San Salvador into pure war zones. The kill rate in El Salvador was higher in 2016 than in all countries with war, with the exception of Syria, according to a report from the Small Arms Survey.

The two biggest bands – MS-13 and Barrio 18 – have thousands of members fighting for territory and lucrative drugs trafficking.

Nearly 300,000

The violence in El Salvador drove nearly 300,000 people last year, reports a report from Refugee Aid. Also from neighboring countries it was massive.

In Honduras, one of Latin America’s poorest and most violent countries, there are also criminal gangs and smuggling gangs that make the ground.

Guatemala is also ravaged by criminal gangs, and the country’s indigenous peoples are as marginalized and poor as before.

Flies from a death sentence

“This is no longer about migrants who chase on the American dream, it’s about escaping a death sentence,” said Sofia Martinez of the International Crisis Group.

President Donald Trump’s fierce line can help worsen the situation in Central America, says Martinez, who lives in Guatemala.

Earlier this year, Trump took residence permit from 257,000 Hondurans and Salvadorans, although some of them had lived in the United States for decades. Are they deported, they will face the miserable job market in a home country that is little prepared to receive them.

Was formed in Los Angeles

Most of the gangs currently in Central America, originated in rough neighborhoods in Los Angeles. When tens of thousands of Middle Americans were deported in the 1990s, few jobs were waiting. Many therefore continued the criminal activity.

“Initially, they only fought between themselves and beat each other with belts. Now they have firearms and bullets, “said Carmen Siguenza, 52. She sent both children to the United States when they were teenagers, fearing that they should end up in one of the gangs in El Salvador.

She and her husband have considered following, but this border control is now, it does not expire, she says.

“It’s the young bands going after, not us older,” she says.

Cecilia Tojin (18) and 250 others were brought this week home in a chartered flight from Arizona to Guatemala City. For her, the dream of the United States was broken after a two month long trip through Mexico.

The journey cost her about 65,000 kroner, money she borrowed from the parents, who pledged the house for her to afford to pay human traffickers.

– I am not afraid. I will try again, she tells about running tears.

Women drive a car for the first time in Saudi Arabia

Sunday, June 24, 2018


The ban on women driving a car in Saudi Arabia was lifted night to Sunday. At the same time, central women’s warriors are imprisoned.

– I am so happy! I learned to drive 18 years ago in the United States where I took the driver’s license. I can not believe the day I can drive in my own hometown has come, “said Sarah Alwassia, 35, to the Saudi Arabian newspaper.

Saudi Arabia was until Sunday the only country in the world that forbade women to drive a car. Before Sunday, a Saudi Arabian woman would have been arrested if she sat down behind the wheel. But in September last year, the king of the country issued a decree that removed the ban. The ban was officially lifted at midnight until sunday the 24th of June, at 01.00 Norwegian time.

“Finally, I can visit my family without asking my husband to drive me,” said Wala Abu Negm, 30-year-old, according to NTB, as she sat in the driver’s seat in husband’s Ford and left the streets of Riyadh.

That Saudi Arabian women can for the first time drive a car without having to be transported by a male relative or driver have been greeted with jubilee all over the world. But it also shows the day that a number of key women’s rights activists have been arrested lately.

Several of the women who have been arrested have been key in the fight for women to drive a car and are considered as icons in the Saudi Arabian women’s movement.

In May, at least ten women’s fighters arrested, according to the authorities, to “undermine the security and stability of the kingdom”.

Among the arrested are the central women’s advocates Loujain al-Hathloul (32), Iman al-Nafjan (39) and Aziza al-Yousef (60). Al-Hathloul is known as the young woman who was detained for over 70 days in 2014 after attempting to drive from the United Arab Emirates to Saudi Arabia.

According to The Washington Post, all three women are among the women’s warriors who have not yet been released. The Independent writes that there are in total 17 women’s arrested who have been arrested and eight of them have been released.

Many Saudi Arabian women have taken driver’s licenses abroad and can now travel for the first time in their home country. Most Saudi Arabian women do not have driver’s license, and according to NTB, there have been long queues for taking driving courses that have been opened for women in closed areas in the last three months.

Crown Prince Haakon will assist Norway into the UN Security Council

Friday, June 22, 2018

NEW YORK, Norway wants a place in the UN’s best company. Therefore, the Foreign Minister has taken the Crown Prince to New York.

“It’s good for me to contribute to this campaign. I have worked as a goodwill ambassador for the UN Development Program for 14 years, and seen how the UN works at country level, and see what good work is being done to get things like better education, better health and fight poverty, Crown Prince Haakon says the newspaper VG in the rose garden outside the United Nations building in Manhattan.

He has left the trip with Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Søreide.

Friday night US time holds Norway launch party at the UN headquarters for its candidacy as a member of the UN Security Council from 2021 to 2022. A party crown prince Haakon must shed light on.

Long election campaign

Norway competes against Ireland and Canada for one of two vacant seats. The election campaign is ongoing until all UN member states vote for the candidates in 2020. The Foreign Minister believes it is important for Norway to have a place in the good company in order to continue our work in fields such as peace and reconciliation and the Norwegian Sea Initiative.

However, she does not dare to guarantee that the campaign will be a success.

“We have formidable resistance in Canada and Ireland, and we are also thinking about some questions, but for 70 years we have been a clear political and economic supporter for the UN. That we have been for a rule-based world order, for development and for humanitarian assistance, is important for our candidacy. We have a long peace and reconciliation work that many have noted, “says Eriksen Søreide, who also believes Norway’s support for a reform of the UN will count positively.

The Crown Prince points out that the things Norway is concerned with internationally, such as poverty alleviation and education, is entirely in line with what the UN is concerned about.

“It is professionally anchored and very credible. Now the government has also launched a lot of sea, he points out, adding that he believes Norway’s opportunities to be chosen are good.

In order to achieve this, Norway must endorse the 193 member states. Small and large countries count equally. Eriksen Søreide draws up countries in Africa and small island states when VG asks who must be convinced that Norway will have enough votes.

“We have generally had a long-term commitment to African countries. It’s natural because we have a strong partnership with many countries there. But we also work with small island countries, which are important in view of our seas. In addition to European countries and, in general, those countries where we think our agenda is important.

“Some criticisms of the UN Security Council assume that the five permanent members with veto rights have too much power and that it often becomes a kind of” council “that can not be accomplished because these countries often disagree. What do you think about it?

“It is a real issue today that the Security Council is very polarized. It is difficult to get unified solutions with consensus, but what we have seen in recent years is that not only the five permanent members decide. We are increasingly seeing that it is possible to engage the non-permanent members, “said the Foreign Minister.

Friday, June 22, 2018

US President Donald Trump threatens the EU to introduce 20 percent duty on all cars imported to the United States.

In a Twitter message on Friday, Trump shows “customs and trade barriers that the EU has long been affecting the United States and its great companies and workers.”

– If these tariffs and barriers are not soon broken down and removed, we will introduce 20 percent toll on all their cars coming to the United States. Build them here! twists the American president.

Trump has also previously threatened to introduce car traffic. In May, his trade minister confirmed that the US is considering the possibility of increasing the import tax on foreign cars.

The EU’s duty on cars from the US is 10 percent.

By comparison, the import tax on foreign passenger cars in the United States has been 2.5 per cent, while for vans 25 per cent.

“It is very difficult for us to sell cars to the EU. But the EU has its Mercedes’s and its BMWs, and the cars flow almost unobstructed into the United States. They only pay a torn customs, while the EU requires a lot, “Trump told NTB when he visited NATO’s Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in May.

The soundtrack of immigrant children shakes the United States


Tuesday 19 June 2018


ProPublica has released sound recordings of several crying children who have been taken from their parents on the border with the United States.

In the seven-minute recording, ten children of immigrants from Central America will be heard talking with border guards. The children cry and demand their parents after being taken away from them on the border.

Among the cry, a male border guard is heard:

– We have an orchestra here, do not we? We only need a conductor.

Two children are told not to cry.

“Can I at least be with my aunt?” I want her to come, ask the girl from El Salvador. She has pinned the phone number, and eventually gets help calling the aunt. Another child cries uninterrupted throughout the sound recording, and calls for his dad.

2000 children in six weeks

The recording puts sound on a theme that now characterizes the political debate in the United States.

Since the end of April, more than 2,000 children have been taken from their parents and held in detention camps by the authorities after arrival in the United States, something a child lawyer refers to as “a form of child abuse”, CBS writes.

According to the news agency, AP, some of the children are kept in cages.

In May, US Justice Minister announced a new zero tolerance for illegal immigration from Mexico:

“If you smuggle a child, we will plead and that child may be separated from you. If you do not want your children to be taken from you do not take them over the border illegally. ”

“We do not have the same civilization model. Obviously, certain values ​​we do not share, he says to the TV channel France 2.

President Donald Trump believes that the blame lies with the Democrats.

Audi’s chief executive has been arrested because of emissions scandal

Monday, June 18, 2018

Rupert Stadler says he is innocent.

The German prosecutor has decided to arrest Audi chief executive Rupert Stadler, according to AFP and Die Welt.

Stadler is under investigation for Volkswagen-owned Audi’s involvement in the diesel scandal, and is now temporarily detained, confirms Volkswagen.

A week ago, the home of Stadler was investigated.


The German prosecutor of the Munich Attorney General filed a trial on 30 May. Stadler and a member of the board are suspected of fraud, according to Spiegel.

Stadler has always claimed he is innocent.

In January it became known that German transport authorities had found prohibited emissions control software in several of Audi’s cars, which in turn led them to recall 127,000 cars.


In November, the car manufacturer had to call back 5,000 cars in Europe to correct a software problem that caused the cars to escape too much nitrogen oxide. It is the same gas that was the backdrop of the diesel scandal in the owner company Volkswagen back in 2015.

Volkswagen admitted by 2015 to have equipped their cars with a special software designed to trick emission tests. It was US authorities who discovered the software, which is located in the cars to embrace environmental harmful emissions from diesel engines.
