A group of left-wing organizations have outlined their plan for a day of terror' which aims to cause maximum damage at Trump's inauguration. Over 75 groups are to descend onto the Capitol, with plans to violently attack police, politicians, and citizens who wish to witness Donald Trump's inauguration ceremony. One of the groups, #DisruptJ20, have urged readers of their website to break the law and do everything in their power to terrorist the city on Friday. In an article entitled, Ten Reasons to Go Hard on January 20 the left-wing terror organisation outline to anarchists, socialists, and communists “why would it be worth driving across the country to a city crowded with reactionaries and police.” Breitbart.com reports: Saying that during the inauguration “the DC police will have their hands full” it ominously tells the web of American-hating, anti-capitalist activists worldwide that the January 20th inauguration “is our only chance to fight Trump under the laws and police protocol of the Obama era.

Yet the merger of the companies – the second-largest deal announced last year -- hasn't been approved by the federal government that Trump now controls - and regulatory concerns remain, especially because it could reshape the world’s food supply. And Trump doesn't yet have an agriculture secretary to even consider whether the deal would help farmers and set policies on such mergers. The tactic shows how his hands-on style could create problems, how he’s blurring lines in the way traditional government works, and how committed he is to forcing companies to create new American jobs to fulfill his political promises. He has personally become involved in a number of deals, including bids to save jobs at auto plants and with Carrier, an Indiana air conditioning company. His tweets have rattled the stock market and sent company CEOs hurriedly rushing to Trump Tower for a meeting.

I used a flat sheet of aluminum, cut it into a circle, and cut out everything except the spokes. I then made wooden quarter circle pieces, they arent bent, but instead I cut the wood in the shape of a semi-circle, then bolted those to the aluminum plate, and sanded it so it’d be a nice rounded contour for your hands. It’s actually a really comfortable wheel. I used a Marine Spar Varnish on the walnut wood. It came out very pretty and has a UV protector in the varnish so it should hold up good over the years. We copied what we saw in some of the old cars, that’s why we went with a four-spoke wheel. The diameter was as big as I could make on my mill, 15-3/4” to be exact. It’s one of those details, that man and machine interface where you actually touch it, it’s nice to have wood. Like the stock of a gun, that sort of thing. We made the glovebox door out of the same piece of wood.

BMW has also fitted slightly revised steering, to improve communication through the steering wheel and better straight-line stability. This worked wonders in the 3 Series , so we're hoping for good things in the 4er. Overall, BMW seems to have done a good job with the 4 Series' facelift. Not much needed to be done to the 4 Series to make it better looking, so BMW did just enough to enhance and already pretty car. Combine that with some new tech and new suspension and BMW should have a real winner on its hands.

You’d think black people would be allowed ownership of the civil rights struggle – but meaning is fluid in the Trump era. Dont fall for it Each year, on the third Monday in January, US public schools close to observe the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr . At some point during the preceding week, most schoolchildren attend a Martin Luther King Jr Day assembly, a pregnant pause between classes designed to remind students of the black trauma and black greatness in America’s DNA, the gravity of King’s sacrifice, and, most pressingly, the persistent relevance of his mission. The purpose is not just to honour, but to remember. A good MLK Day assembly ought to emphasise that our work is not done, particularly this year, just days before America’s first black president hands the nation over to an oligarch endorsed by the Ku Klux Klan who “won” his office largely through voter suppression in black and Latino communities .

.an elite. Also democracy doesnt work as long as people vote for their own shopping list and the ‘leadersseek to win (by promising you dreams, rather than caring for the whole). And most leaders serve the hands that feed them, read mostly huge corporations. Have you seen any government really addressing one of the issues above? Well other than blaming ‘them’ and then using your vote to strengthen their side, while not solving any real issue? The Root of The Problem What is clear is that a small minority of humans are willing to lie, cheat, manipulate all others for power and riches. Many people are caught in damaging paradigms that result of this. They too will support the manipulative ones. They endorse ideas like: ‘It’s either us or them’. ‘My believe is so much more worth than yours, so your voice may be silenced if you threaten my position (or even just speak out)’.

They've been consistently sharing the cause of emptying Europe of Jews while transplanting them in Palestine. Theodore Herzl, the founder of colonial Zionism, stated very clearly in his Diaries: “The anti-Semites will become our most dependable friends, the anti-Semitic countries our allies.” This alliance continues to this day as the burgeoning extreme right aims to have a Jew-free white America while maintaining a staunch support for Israel. Trump's friendship with Netanyahu is emblematic of this tendency. Zionists like to think of themselves as the saviors of the Jews, as if Jews were compliant lambs until the Zionists came over and put pitchforks and guns in our hands. This way Zionism attempts to overshadow Judaism's important contribution to legacies of struggle. In my own life, Judaism informs my resistance to the Israeli state (and to all states, for that matter).

The increase follows President Barack Obama’s decision in June to give US commanders more leeway to target the Taliban , amid the Afghan army’s struggle to keep strategic cities from falling into the insurgentshands. Strikes conducted under this authority, referred to by the military as “strategic effectsstrikes, have increased in frequency since the new rules came into force. The continuing rise in attacks against the Taliban demonstrates the battle against the insurgents is far from over, despite combat operations targeting the group officially ending almost two years ago. Since then, Taliban violence has increased and Afghanistan’s branch of Islamic State has been trying to carve out territory in the east of the country. IS emerged in Afghanistan in late 2014, growing as a force through 2015. The US responded by allowing the military to specifically target the group in a bid to stop it gaining strength.

That is, perhaps, understandable for the current situation only because we have seen relatively strong examples of the NPD entering into the State Parliaments and then have - of course - used those specific funds for their work. So this situation is as it is, and I think what is important is that now to expose and isolate the ideology and the political positions - that are sadly not only found within the NPD - through political means." SOT, Sahra Wagenknecht, Leader of Die Linke (German): "I believe that one can better prepare for this, whether one had another preconception of it, we must accept that the Judge has decided and we have to respect this decision. But it was always clear, in such cases of banning [a political party] from the first point that when one tackles it then one needs as much in their hands as is possible for it to be successfully brought to an end.
