    Biden to appointees: I'll fire you if you treat someone with disrespect. In his remarks to over a thousand of his appointees, President Joe Biden laid out what he expects from them and what kind of administration he will have.


  2. Nothing at this stage. We are all lucky (at least in the US) that this clown was totally incompetent.

    There is talk about implementing reforms, and passing laws that would protect the country and the constitution from this kind of abuse happening again.

    We'll have to wait and see. We're not in the clear yet.

    Jan. 6th, 2021, will be remembered as a day when the Trump rioters, thugs, and insurrectionists stormed the US Capitol during the joint session of Congress was meeting to certify the Electoral College results and seal the election.

    Sad, sad, sad moment in American history that has been in the making since 1999 (when Newt Gingrich served as the 50th Speaker of the United States House of Representatives). It culminated on Jan.6, 2021 at the end of Donald J. Trump's Presidential term.

    Unfortunately, we don't know yet if this is the end of an era or simply the beginning of something much-much worse. The Republican Party has morphed into the greatest danger for democracy in this country. Unless there is somebody that has the balls to steer the Party in a different direction and correct its course, the only thing that could save this country is if the Party were to split. Short of that, Democracy cannot exist if the losing Party refuses to acknowledge the results of an election.

    FT assessment of current status:

    The Financial Times article is only available to subscribers. Too bad! 😞

    Any other reference that you think would help us better understand the UK and its Brexit strategy is welcome.

  6. From the Guardian: Cyprus scraps 'golden passport' scheme after politicians caught in undercover sting

    Official and lawmaker filmed pledging to support application from fictitious investor with criminal record

    Al Jazeera has an hour show exposing corruption in Cyprus. One of those filmed was Cyprus's parliamentary speaker, Demetris Syllouris, who said he would step down until an investigation was completed.

    Should the European Commission pursue legal action against Cyprus?
