That is, apart from home foreclosures and urban blight from shuttered factories and stores, complete with divorce and broken families, if not alcoholism and drug addiction. An ironic twist occurred with the Gay Kenyan and his recent eight years squatting in the White House. The legions of Obama supporters were on public assistance, like welfare and food stamps. They clamored for their darling even though he did not do jack shit for the black community, whose members in the business community came to dislike him, even to hate him, surely to disrespect him. In typical broken societies and ruptured nations, the jobless take up pitchforks and attack the palace. The Storming of the Bastille still reverberates in memories. But this does not happen in the United States, where they lift a darling champion to be a golf and fund raiser champion, peppered by gay sex parties in the Lincoln room.

ABIDJAN: Flying Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha looks set to make his Ivory Coast debut after he was named in their final 23-man squad for the Africa Cup of Nations on Wednesday. The 24-year-old is among several Premier League stars included by coach Michel Dussuyer for the Jan 14 - Feb 5 tournament in Gabon, where the Ivory Coast are defending champions and among the favourites to retain their crown. Dussuyer last week named a 24-man provisional squad and it is defender Ousmane Viera, who plays in Turkey, who misses out. England manager Gareth Southgate had urged Zaha, who was born in Abidjan but appeared in two friendlies for England under former boss Roy Hodgson, to stick with the country where he grew up. But the former Manchester United man ignored that and now looks set to play a major part in Gabon after pledging his allegiance to the Ivory Coast in November.

It even enrolled the help of U2's Bono and former Beatle Ringo Starr. And for the first time in an election, it made ballots available in Braille so blind Colombians could vote. Santos had urged his compatriots to vote early and take inspiration from Indian independence leader Mahatma Gandhi. We in Colombia have to adopt this culture of non-violence, Santos said shortly after casting his ballot in a washed-out Plaza Bolivar next to the presidential palace.

The majority have sought refuge in neighboring countries such as Turkey, Lebanon and Egypt, while 6.6 million are displaced within Syria itself, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees . Just over one million have requested asylum within Europe. Germany, with more than 300,000 cumulated applications, and Sweden, with 100,000, are the E.U.s top receiving countries. When the refugees came to Germany or Europe in general we were shocked by the things wed seen, Kasem tells TIME. When we arrived we thought it was going to be all good and nice and fancy.

A tenuous cease-fire declared by Kiir and endorsed by Machar on Monday appears to be holding. Since the clashes erupted, the government says at least 272 people have been killed, including 33 civilians, but the United Nations fears the toll could be much higher. At least 36,000 civilians are also estimated to have been displaced by the recent fighting; many are sheltering at two U.N. bases and churches in the capital. Wednesday, South Sudan’s newly appointed U.N. Ambassador Akuei Bona Malwal reiterated the government’s explanation for the cause of the fighting, saying opposition leader Riek Machar’s spokesman posted a false news story saying President Kiir had called a meeting at his presidential palace in order to “set up” Machar for arrest and possible harm. The ambassador said 21 mounted vehicles with bodyguards loyal to Machar came to the palace, accompanied by an ambulance that contained ammunition, to rescue Machar.

MANILA: After proposing a jet-ski mission to defend remote islands against China, daring the United States to sever ties and joking about burning Singapore's flag, Rodrigo Duterte (pix) is set for a wild foreign policy ride as the next Philippine president. The firebrand politician stormed to victory in national elections this week using an incendiary brand of populism and nationalism that his aides insist he will moderate once he has the keys to the presidential palace on June 30. Duterte branded the pope a "son of a whore" and angrily told the US and Australian ambassadors to "shut their mouths" after they criticised a joke he made about rape. The 71-year-old offered no apologies when asked by AFP on election night for a message to members of the international diplomatic community who may be concerned. "It is not to contribute to the comfort of other nations.

The French government was pressing the authority to suspend the effort on the grounds that it will undermine French attempts to convene an international peace conference this summer, according to senior Israeli and Palestinian officials. “The opportunity to go to the Security Council will always be there and we want to give a chance to the French initiative because, in the end, this is an initiative that serves us and not one that hurts us,” the Palestinian figure said. A senior official in Jerusalem, who asked to remain anonymous due to diplomatic sensitivity, said that information reaching Israel had indicated that France’s ambassador to the United Nations, Francois Delattre, informed his Palestinian counterpart, Riyad Mansour, of the problems involved in promoting a Security Council resolution against the settlements at this time. The issue also came up in a meeting at the Elysee Palace in Paris on Friday between French President Francois Hollande and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
