Make no mistake, Donald Trump kicked off his campaign for 2020 on Tuesday night when he delivered the State of the Union address.

Expect "socialism" to become a very dirty word (if it isn't already).

"Here in the United States, we are alarmed by new calls to adopt socialism in our country," the President said, adding: "Tonight, we resolve that America will never be a socialist country".



From ABC NEWS



I would have thought that Dilma Rousseff in Brazil, Hugo Chavez and Nicholas Maduro in Argentina, Evo Morales in Bolivia, just to name a few, would have already made Socialism a dirty word in America.

Slightly off topic, Americas latest brightest influencer, the avowedly socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has been rather cruelly nicknamed "Occasional Cortex", in reference to her seemingly talking before thinking.

[At Davos], historian Rutger Bregman was speaking on a panel about taxes, and questioned billionaire attendees' use of fuel-guzzling private jets to come to a conference with a strong focus on tackling climate change.

"This is my first time at Davos and I find it quite a bewildering experience to be honest," he said. "I mean, 1,500 private jets flown in to hear David Attenborough speak about how we're wrecking the planet.

"I hear people talking the language of participation and justice and equality and transparency.

"But then almost no-one raises the real issue of tax avoidance, right, and of the rich just not paying their fair share.

"It feels like I'm at a firefighters' conference and no-one's allowed to speak about water."

The US will shiver this week in a once-in-a-generation deep freeze, forecasters warn.
The most extreme arctic blasts, caused by a spinning pool of cold air known as the polar vortex, could bring temperatures as low as -53C (-64F).


Where we lived in Alberta ,Canada, it was unusual, but still happened regularly in winter, that temperatures dropped below -45F and the propane would solidify in gas tanks.
Problem was that the propane was primarily used to heat the homes/ house trailers. Lighting fires under the propane tank was not advised, but still happened !!

The Washington Post is running with the story with a major article on its website. All over red rover. Trying to impose a media blackout these days is as effective as having an ashtray on a motorbike.

Significant breakthrough in case involving high-profile Australian
By 9News Staff - 7 hours ago

The media is unable to report any details of the case due to a court order.

A crime has been committed by a high-profile Australian with a worldwide reputation.

9NEWS is prevented reporting the identity of this person, details of their case and their crime.

9NEWS along with other members of the Australian media, are currently working to be able to bring you the full story.

The major newspapers are also restricted from reporting details of this story - and many are using their front pages today to express their anger and frustration at not being able to do so.

The case has highlighted the difficulty of trying to censor information in a digitally connected world.

It has attracted attention from international media outlets, with details being reported online.

Details of the case are being shared by members of the public online and on social media, by people who may be unaware of the potentially serious legal consequences of doing so.

Mick - I am not sure whether merely posting links from overseas sites would be a breach of the court order preventing publication of any information about the court decision. The linked article is NOT about the clergyman and the court decision earlier this week and seems to be okay to post as it is an ABC Australia article.

Funny story about how a Google executive had to explain to US Senators why if you searched for images of "stupid" the front results page was mostly of images of Donald Trump.
