{UAH} Christie To Kushner: “Trump Must Lawyer Up And Keep His Mouth Shut”

In a private meeting between Jared Kushner and Gov. Chris Christie, Trump's son-in-law was warned that the president should retain an outside lawyer to handle the continuing investigation into his administration's contacts with Russian officials.

According to Vanity Fair, although Christie publicly denied talking to Kushner about getting legal help, privately he told him it would be the best thing to do.

Christie put together the first transition plan for Trump before Kushner got him pushed out, now talks to Trump's senior advisor frequently by phone, which can be confirmed, although both sides claim that specific conversation "simply did not happen."

Someone who heard Christie talk about the conversation said that the Republican governor said Trump "better lawyer up and keep his mouth shut."

According to Christie's spokesman, the account of the conversation is "categorically false."

{UAH} A belligerent man in a Trump hat was kicked off a flight as a crowd chanted: ‘Lock him up!’

A belligerent man in a Trump hat was kicked off a flight as a crowd chanted: 'Lock him up!'

Like some bizarre parody of a Trump rally, a belligerent man in a "Make America Great Again" hat was booted off a plane in Shanghai Sunday — defiantly waving as a crowd of passengers jeered in the terminal: "Lock him up! Lock him up!"

It's unclear whether Chinese police did jail the man or who he was. As others on the United Airlines flight described it, he started arguing before he stepped onto the plane.

"Obviously, the hat provoked some of the stuff," said Alexis Zimmerman, who was flying back to Newark from a business trip.

The man took an aisle seat three rows in front of her. She said he refused to let anyone sit beside him.

"He wanted to sit in the whole row by himself," Zimmerman said.

Her video shows him leaning back in his seat — hands folded behind his red hat, feet propped on someone else's arm rest — while a woman in crutches and many others stand in the aisle, snap photos and glare.

"This young lady's not going to make it to her classes tomorrow and her tests she has to take, thanks to you," a woman told the man. "Are you proud of yourself?"

"Guess what," he replied. "In 45 minutes I'm going to collapse for not drinking my soda."

The man said he was a diabetic, Zimmerman said. But at one point, passengers said, he also dared the flight crew to cuff him and drag him off the plane — reminding other passengers of last month's infamous deplaning, amid a barrage of in-plane horror stories that have plagued United and the rest of the airline industry in recent years.

But the United crew in Shanghai remained polite and patient throughout Sunday's ordeal, said Clark Gredoña, another passenger.

"He was trying to explain to the crew and captain … because he had points, he felt he deserved an upgrade," he said. "So this was his way of getting it."

But he got no upgrade. And before long, as seen in video, the man was waving his arms and shouting: "I have a seat here! … Shut up! … Moron!"

This went on for the better part of an hour, passengers Gredoña and Zimmerman said. And somehow in all of it, U.S. politics came up.

"I know people don't like my hat," Zimmerman heard the man say.

"He berated a female passenger," Gredoña said. "I think he called her Hillary. Then he called her a lesbian. I think he called a stewardess 'sweetheart.' "

The man became "increasingly disruptive when asked to deplane," a United spokesman said in a brief statement. "Local law enforcement was called to assist."

Police had no more luck persuading him than anyone else. So Zimmerman, Gredoña and every other passenger had to return to the terminal and wait for the officers to remove him from the plane.

Zimmerman said that took another two hours. Gredoña, who was partway home from a trip to the Philippines, had by then lost track of time.

He only knows a lot of it passed before the man finally emerged from the plane, escorted by police.

That's when the whole incident took on a very electoral vibe. Cellphone video shows the man, still in his Trump hat, ascending an escalator — waving what appears to be a seat cushion at dozens of angry onlookers.

Gredoña thinks the chanting started after the man taunted the crowd: "So I succeeded in making you guys waste three-and-a-half hours."

People then shouted words unprintable.

And one shouted: "Lock him up!"

Then another, and another. "Lock him up, lock him up" — until a Chinese airport terminal sounded much like a latter-day Trump rally, when he and his crowds threatened his presidential campaign opponent, Hillary Clinton, with prison.

"I was one of those chanters," Zimmerman said. "I didn't start it. But oh my God, it was so funny, I couldn't help myself."

The man remained defiant until the end — jeered in multiple languages, surrounded by police, he finally walked down the concourse and out of sight to an unknown fate.

The plane would take off for the United States that evening, stopping for another delay in San Francisco so new crew could board, but eventually making it to Newark.

{UAH} Millions to watch the eagerly awaited Pope Francis - President Trump mega face to face today




   President Trump                                                                                       Pope Francis



The world is now ready to witness a great event taking place at the Vatican/Rome today morning at 8.30 am ( 6.30 am GMT) when US President Trump will be hosted by Pope Francis in the Apostolic Palace. The event has drawn thousands of journalists from all over the world and some of its key highlights will be televised direct to the whole world. 
Trump who arrived in the Italian capital yesterday evening with his wife Melania and son Ivanka is indeed set to meet the Holy Pontif at his own request. He has in mind the weight of the 70 million Roman Catholics in his country and the points which gave rise to a stiff disagreement between the two men, for example his vison on immigration and the construction of that wall along the US-Mexican border, things which didn't appease the open-minded and globally embracing Pontiff. Another point of discord may refer to the sale of arms to various nations which the Pope may judge as an encouragement to conflict escalation in various parts of the planet. And Trump's position on ecology and environment may also be seen skeptically by the Roman Pontif especially if Trump continues to show an unbending stand on the matter. However some observers believe that the two leaders will try to shove aside  their differences and concentrate on items touching on world order and peace in some war infested regions of the globe. One point is clear, the two leaders will definitely seem to be on the same wavelength on subjects dealing with abortion and contraception.
After meeting the Pope President Trump will finalize other agenda businesses with the Italian authorities while his wife Melania will be visiting a renowned hospital  specially built to cater for poor children, and their son Ivanka will be hosted at the famous Saint Egidio humanitarian centre which he had eagerly planned to visit.
Dr G.H. Kkolokolo

{UAH} Ocen, Allan// Fox News retracts story on murdered DNC staffer - Mulindawa is pained

Folks;

As the principal peddler of fake news, and for the purpose of throwing dirt at the Democratic Party, Fox News is not known to own up to any untrue story they disseminate.

They exploited the death of this young DNC staffer to paint Hilary Clinton as a murderous witch. Now, faced with mounting criticism from the young man's family, Fox News belatedly offers an apology, by retracting the story.

My namesake up north should look for another source of fake news to convey to us here.

SV: {UAH} UPC Debate

Fellow Ugandans,
The Okellos and, or IKANOS are duping Ugandans on the issue of UPC as a progressive political party. YES, they turned it into the party of inheritance by birth and, or even from……
This is quite unfortunate hence AKENA has to sell the party because he is the son of the late OBOTE but not because he has the real ideological strand of this party!

Simon Peter Okurut and UPC members,

There is a debate going in in a number of UPC Fora which you might want to join. As of yesterday, in one forum, there were nearly 100,000 responses- I had to turn off and set up a different address for the forum. 

The topics being debated are:

1. Convening of A National Delegates Conference
2. Retirement or Removal of James Akena as Leader of a Faction Of the UPC
3. Engaging With The High Court To Agree A Final of Court Settlement of Numerous Cases Currently Pending Hearing or Adjudication.

Thank You,


Bobby

Residents of Nsube Mukono District exhumed a businessman who was on Monday killed and buried by collapsing walls of a stone quarry where he was excavating stones.
Grief-stricken residents at the scene believe the quarry walls were softened by the ongoing heavy rains which led to the accident.

The deceased was identified as Junior Kazibwe, 37, also a resident of Nsuube village.
His colleagues who had also gone to the quarry were shocked to find a heap of soil covering the place where their friend had gone to work.

They raised an alarm which attracted residents, and they immediately began trying to retrieve his body. The accident was said to have occurred at around 8.30 am. The police fire brigade were summoned but told residents on arrival that they could do nothing since they had no excavator. His colleagues eventually pulled his body out about three hours later.

The LC I NRM Chairman Ronald Kambugu advised residents to always take care when going for stone quarrying and to avoid doing their business during rain seasons.
The body was later taken by the police to Kawolo hospital.

{UAH} Akena’s UPC faction moves to expel him

Akena's UPC faction moves to expel him

James Akena

James Akena receives a medal from President Museveni in 2010 on behalf of his late father, former president Milton Obote. 

By SHABIBAH NAKIRIGYA

KAMPALA- A faction of Uganda Peoples Congress (UPC) party led by Lira Municipality MP Mr Jimmy Akena has turned against their boss demanding his ouster on grounds that he is handing over the party to ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM).

Faction members led by Mr Higenyi Kemba told journalists at Melting Pot Restaurant in Kampala on Tuesday that Mr Akena has been holding secret meetings with President Yoweri Museveni to finalise  his creepy plan.

Mr Kemba is Mr Akena's office administrator.

 "Mr Akena is hereby asked to publically disassociate himself from NRM or resign immediately. We cannot   accept a situation where one is wearing yellow inside but masquerading in a red shirt.  UPC is pure and open whoever is talking in the dark should leave the party," Mr Kemba said.

During the 2016 presidential campaigns in Lango region, President Museveni said NRM was in talks with Mr Akena's UPC.

Mr Akena's camp which is at loggerheads with another faction led by Mr Olara Otunnu, however, dismissed reports that the party was on the verge of merging with the ruling National Resistance Movement party.

Mr Akena insisted that the talks with NRM were just part of a series of engagements with different political parties and organisations that had fielded presidential candidates in the 2016 elections.

After the elections, Mr Museveni, who won, appointed Mr Akena's wife Ms Betty Amongin as Lands minister.

 "I convinced the leaders of UPC that this [Akena] the son of Obote had suffered a lot under Musevenism and cannot be the one to join Museveni but I am shocked," Mr Kemba said.  "I take responsibility for having brought Akena to Uganda House [UPC headquarters] I am now at the fore front of removing   Akena and his Musevenism out of UPC."

However, Mr Akena refused to respond to the development saying he is not aware about the information.

"I have to first read through the press release where they are asking me to resign then I   will respond immediately," Mr Akena said.

Mr Kemba said as matter of fact, there has never been and there is neither such alliance nor talks between UPC and NRM.

 "We disassociate ourselves from the alleged talks between UPC and NRM which has been reported widely and if Mr Akena did it, it was for his personal interests not the party," Mr Kemba said.

{UAH} CF-18s ready to patrol skies over Iceland

CF-18s ready to patrol skies over Iceland

News Release

May 19, 2017 – Ottawa – National Defence / Canadian Armed Forces

A detachment of Canadian CF-18 Hornet fighters are ready and will begin patrolling Iceland's airspace as part of Operation REASSURANCE on May 22, 2017.

For approximately one month, Air Task Force (ATF)-Iceland, based out of Keflavik Air Base, will provide continuous air surveillance and interception capability which could be launched immediately to meet and identify unknown airborne objects within, or approaching NATO airspace.

Air Task Force-Iceland is part of the renewal of the mandate of Operation REASSURANCE announced by the Government of Canada in July 2016 at the NATO Warsaw Summit in Poland. Canada and Iceland continue to be close partners within NATO and this deployment is an example of the Canada's continuing solidarity and collaboration with Allies to ensure safety and security in the Alliance's airspace."

—Harjit S. Sajjan, Defence Minister

"The men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) have world-class military skills and a global reputation as a professional and capable force. Air Task Force-Iceland is another example of the CAF having the necessary capabilities to make a meaningful contribution across the full spectrum of international operations."

—Lieutenant-General Stephen Bowes, Commander, Canadian Joint Operations Command

Quick Facts

  • As part of the renewal of the Op REASSURANCE mandate announced by the Government of Canada in July 2016 at the NATO Warsaw Summit in Poland, the Canadian Armed Forces, under the Command of Canadian Joint Operations Command (CJOC), will deploy an Air Task Force to conduct Icelandic Air Surveillance.

  • Operation REASSURANCE refers to the military activities under taken by the CAF since 2014 to support NATO assurance and deterrence measures. Operation REASSURANCE is designed to reinforce the defence of NATO Allies in Central and Eastern Europe, reassure those Allies' populations of NATO support.

  • The Air Task Force Commander, aircrews, maintainers, and some support staff are from 3 Wing Bagotville, Quebec. Air Task Force-Iceland will be under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel William "Billy" Mitchell, who is currently the Commanding Officer of 433 Tactical Fighter Squadron, 3 Wing Bagotville. The Air Task Force will operate six CF-18 aircraft.

{UAH} World Health Organization Elects a New Director General from Ethiopia

World Health Organization Elects a New Director General from Ethiopia

TIME Health
For more, visit TIME Health.

On Tuesday, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, a health expert from Ethiopia, was elected as the new director-general to lead the United Nations agency focused on international public health.

Tedros, who prefers to be called by his first name, will be taking over the position from Dr. Margaret Chan, who has been overseeing the agency since 2006. Tedros will serve a five-year term in the new position which will be begin on July 1. He will be the first health official from Africa to serve as director-general.

In a speech before the election—part of a weeklong meeting of health ministers from 194 nations in Geneva—Tedros talked about growing up in Ethiopia, saying he comes from a background of "knowing survival cannot be taken for granted, and refusing to accept that people should die because they are poor." Tedros also spoke about the need for universal access to health care, a better response to health emergencies and the need to tackle gender-based violence, as well as threats to global health like climate change, the migrant crisis and terrorism.

The two other candidates were Britain's Dr. David Nabarro, a health official who has lead the United Nations response to a variety of health problems, including the 2014 Ebola outbreak, and Dr. Sania Nishtar, the first female cardiologist in Pakistan.

Tedros is a former health and foreign affairs minister from Ethiopia. As a foreign affairs minister Tedros focused on accelerating Africa's economic, political and social development. According to his director-general application, as health minister, he oversaw the creation of 3,500 health centers and 16,000 health posts, which contributed to considerably cutting child mortality rates, HIV infections, malaria deaths and deaths from tuberculosis.

"I envision a world where everyone can lead healthy and productive lives, regardless of who they are or where they live," Tedros wrote in his WHO application. "Achieving this will require a stronger and reformed WHO that belongs to all of us equally, and that is efficiently managed, adequately resourced and results-driven—with a strong focus on transparency, accountability and value for money."

The WHO election comes at a difficult time in public and global health. The WHO's reputation suffered due to its response to the Ebola outbreak that started in 2014. Critics argued the organization was too slow in responding to the outbreak, which infected more than 28,000 people in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, and killed more than 11,000. Just a couple years after the start of the epidemic, the Zika virus swept through South America and beyond, resulting in thousands of cases of the severe birth defect microcephaly among infants.

As TIME recently reported, the organization is not yet ready to take on another epidemic of similar proportions. The organization has an annual budget of about $2.2 billion, which is less than major hospitals, the New York Times reports. Thirty percent of that budget comes from United Nation dues, and the rest comes from donated funds.

MORE: The World Is Not Ready for the Next Pandemic

"Tedros is an excellent choice to lead WHO," said Dr. Tom Frieden, the former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in an email sent to TIME. "He succeeded in Ethiopia, making remarkable health progress by rapidly reforming a sclerotic bureaucracy and implementing effective community-based services. Precisely the same thing is needed to make WHO effective providing technical guidance and improving support to countries. Governments and organizations around the world should support WHO to become more effective—doing so is in all of our best interest."

Yet the campaign was not without controversy. A informal advisor for rival candidate David Nabarro accused Tedros of covering up three cholera epidemics in his country of Ethiopia, where he served as health minister. Lawrence Gostin, the director of the O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University, told the New York Times: "Dr. Tedros is a compassionate and highly competent public health official, but he had a duty to speak truth to power and to honestly identify and report verified cholera outbreaks over an extended period." Tedros denies the allegation and told the Times that Nabarro's supporters have a "typical colonial mind-set aimed at winning at any cost and discrediting a candidate from a developing country."

Frieden wrote an opinion letter to the Times defending Tedros. "Although not optimal, many countries report cholera to the World Health Organization as acute watery diarrhea, as Ethiopia has," he wrote. "This allows reporting and response without laboratory confirmation, but in no way indicates that Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, a former health minister of Ethiopia, is any less qualified to become director general of the W.H.O."

{UAH} I nominate Mr.Stanley Ndawula of the Investigator as the journalist of the month

Friends:

 I nominate Mr.Stanley Ndawula of the Investigator as the journalist of the month. I'm not here to fast-track him to some kind of Sainthood status but his article on the Mayor of Kamwenge, Byamukama, may turn out to be a turning point in the history of police torture in Uganda. I applaud his investigative skills. I don't think the enormity of this devastating story was fully understood immediately till when other major newspapers, and of course social media, picked it up. And unfortunately, it is far from over, as we continue to read several stories of people that have been tortured while in police custody, especially Nalufenya and Naggalama detention centres.

This Byamukama tragedy has cut very deep - right through any de-sensitised barrier. Many people seem to be taking this very personally even if they are in fact in opposition, and this was done to a super NRM official. Among the MPs who have spoken out is the brother who took over the reigns from us as the Chairman of political Education club while at Kibuli S.S, Hon. Agaaba Abaasi. I never even knew he was in parliament till this horrible incident. I thought he was still working as a Resist Democracy Completely (RDC).

My only advice to the people running the Investigator would be to think a bit more like journalists and make their points early in the articles, then support it. As it is, a person must read quite a lot to get to the point and most people, alas, are lazy when it comes to reading. It's better to make your point in a pithy first paragraph, and then eliminate everything but the information that supports your point. The shorter the better.That way, it gets read and the information gets across. I was almost gonna give up on that article on Byamukama if I had not seen the gruesome pictures. May God help that man recover and be able to fully use his legs again!
