Zitat von: duester am 24. Januar 2017, 11:14:11http://www.zeit.de/politik/ausland/2017-01/usa-donald-trump-abtreibung-schwangerschaftsabbruch-zuschuesseZur Klarstellung für die, die den Artikel nicht lesen wollen: Es geht darum, dass Organisationen, die außerhalb der USA Schwangerschaftsabbrüche durchführen und diese mit privaten Mitteln finanzieren, keine staatlichen Mittel bekommen.
Zitat[...]That's not true.For one thing, there's already a policy in place that does what Spicer describes. It's called the Helms Amendment, and since 1973 it has banned foreign aid from being used "to pay for the performance of abortion as a method of family planning or to motivate or coerce any person to practice abortions."It's important to note that the Helms Amendment already has harmful effects on women's health. It also makes no exceptions for rape victims in conflict zones, which means the US couldn't have stepped in to help the Boko Haram girls who became pregnant from rape to obtain an abortion.But the global gag rule goes even further than the Helms Amendment. The rule strips federal funding from international organizations that either provide abortion or discuss abortion services with their clients — even if those services are paid for by separate, privately raised funds.
ZitatPresident Donald Trump recently picked Rep. Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina to head the White House's Office of Management and Budget. Like many of Trump's other Cabinet nominees, Mulvaney seems to have a disturbingly low opinion of science.In a stunning September 9 Facebook post (that's since been deleted but is still cached), Mulvaney asked, "... what might be the best question: do we really need government funded research at all."http://www.vox.com/science-and-health/2016/12/21/14012552/trump-budget-director-research-science-mulvaney

Januar 2017, 10:51:01Um Berlusconis Wahlerfolg zu erklären, hat mal jemand in etwa geäußert:"Die eine Hälfte der italienischen Männer IST wie er, die andere Hälfte WÄRE gern wie er."Vielleicht is das ja auch n psychologischer Zugang zu Trump- Wählern. Ohje, da verliere ich glatt den Glauben an 50% der Menschheit.

ZitatA documentary producer, a photojournalist, a live-streamer and a freelance reporter were each charged with the most serious level of offense under Washington DC's law against rioting, after being caught up in the police action against demonstrators.The Guardian learned of their arrests after reporting on Monday that the journalists Evan Engel of Vocativ and Alex Rubinstein of RT America had also been taken into custody by police and charged with felonies while covering the same unrest on Friday morning.
ZitatNone of the arrest reports for the six journalists makes any specific allegations about what any of them are supposed to have done wrong. Keller's report, which also covers the arrests of an unknown number of unidentified other people, includes a note that a police vehicle was vandalized. "I had absolutely nothing to do with the vandalism," said Keller.
ZitatThe Huffington Post reported that Department of Health and Human Services employees were barred from sharing information with public officials. The Environmental Protection Agency also issued a memo ordering staff to halt tweeting and sharing press releases, while several divisions within the Department of Agriculture also received similar directives requesting employees halt sharing information with the public. On Tuesday, Democrats lamented the deleted tweets. "Vladimir Putin would be proud," Democratic National Committee spokesperson Adrienne Watson said in a statement.
ZitatTrump turned on the television to see a jarring juxtaposition — massive demonstrations around the globe protesting his day-old presidency and footage of the sparser crowd at his inauguration, with large patches of white empty space on the Mall. As his press secretary, Sean Spicer, was still unpacking boxes in his spacious new West Wing office, Trump grew increasingly and visibly enraged...Over the objections of his aides and advisers — who urged him to focus on policy and the broader goals of his presidency — the new president issued a decree: He wanted a fiery public response, and he wanted it to come from his press secretary.
