He stated:

“These are…solutions that have been proposed by the people of Texas, each of which has broad bipartisan support. Right now, we could achieve that if we had a governor who cared more about the people of Texas than his own political career.

UPDATE – Democratic Texas State Senator Roland Gutierrez of San Antonio told CNN that shooting suspect Salvador Ramos, 18, was born in North Dakota but did not specified where.

A shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, killed 19 children and two adults on Tuesday. Governor Greg Abbott later said authorities killed the 18-year-old lone gunman.

The suspect, identified by Abbott as Salvador Ramos, entered Robb Elementary School after abandoning his vehicle with a handgun and possibly a rifle. Authorities add that many of the victims were in second to fourth grade.

The exact names and ages of the victims were not immediately available. District officials have asked for privacy and prayers as they begin the process of identifying victims and notifying families; Superintendent Hal Harrell said the school would be closed for the rest of the week, bringing the school year to an end.

On Tuesday evening, President Joe Biden addressed the nation somberly after issuing a proclamation, ordering flags to be flown at half-mast to honor the victims.

“I was hoping, as president, that I wouldn’t have to do this again,” he said from the White House.

Biden renewed his call for gun control in what he called “common sense gun laws” by banning assault-style weapons.

“We have to act and don’t tell me we can’t impact this carnage,” he continued. “It’s time to turn this pain into action.”

Earlier Tuesday, authorities said 13 children were taken by ambulance or bus to Uvalde Memorial Hospital in Uvalde, about 85 miles west of San Antonio. Another hospital, San Antonio University Hospital, said a 66-year-old woman was in critical condition.

Two police officers suffered gunshot wounds but were expected to survive, Governor Abbott said.

“Texans across the state mourn the victims of this senseless crime and the community of Uvalde,” Abott later added in a written statement. “Cecilia and I mourn this horrific loss and urge all Texans to come together to show our unwavering support for all who are suffering.”

“We thank the brave first responders who worked to finally make Robb Elementary School safe,” he continued. “I have instructed the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas Rangers to work with local law enforcement to fully investigate this crime. The Texas Division of Emergency Management is responsible for providing local authorities all the resources necessary to respond to this tragedy as the State of Texas works to ensure the community has what it needs to heal.

The Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District initially reported active shooter at the school, which has just under 600 students. All schools in the district were then locked down due to gunfire in the area.

A heavy police presence remained at the school on Tuesday night, with officers in heavy vests diverting traffic and federal agents running to and from the building.

The district said the city’s civic center was being used as a reunification center.

Uvalde is home to approximately 16,000 people and is the seat of Uvalde County government. The city is about 75 miles from the border with Mexico.

Robb Elementary is in a mostly residential area of ​​modest homes. There is a funeral home across from the school.

The shooting in Texas came less than two weeks after a gunman opened fire at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, killing 10 black shoppers and workers in what officials described as a hate crime.

It is also the deadliest shooting at a US elementary school since a gunman killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, nearly a decade ago. .

In 2018, a gunman shot and killed 10 people at Santa Fe High School in the Houston area. A year earlier, a gunman at a church in Texas killed more than two dozen people during a Sunday service in the small town of Sutherland Springs. In 2019, another gunman at a Walmart in El Paso killed 23 people in a racist attack.

The shooting took place days before the start of the National Rifle Association’s annual convention in Houston. Abbott and the two U.S. senators from Texas were among Republican lawmakers who were scheduled speakers at a leadership forum on Friday sponsored by the NRA’s lobbying arm.

In the years since Sandy Hook, the gun control debate in Congress has had its ups and downs. Efforts by lawmakers to meaningfully change U.S. gun policies have consistently faced obstacles from Republicans and influence from outside groups such as the NRA.

One year after Sandy Hook, Sens. Joe Manchin, a Democrat from West Virginia, and Patrick J. Toomey, a Republican from Pennsylvania, negotiated a bipartisan proposal to expand the country’s background check system. But as the measure was about to go to the Senate for a vote, it became clear that it would not get enough votes to clear a 60-vote filibuster hurdle.

Then-President Barack Obama, who made gun control a central goal of his administration after the Newtown shootings, called Congress’s failure to act “a pretty shameful day for Washington.” .

Last year, the House passed two bills to expand background checks on gun purchases. A bill would have closed a loophole for private and online sales. The other would have extended the review period for the background check. The two languished in the Senate 50-50, where Democrats need at least 10 Republican votes to overcome a filibuster’s objections.

Update: mon 23 may

Plans for a purple plaque honoring one of Wales’ first female MPs have been submitted to Flintshire County Council.

Eirene White was a journalist and civil servant who became Labor MP for East Flintshire between 1950 and 1970.

When the Labor Party came to power under Harold Wilson in 1964, White became Parliamentary Under-Secretary at the Colonial Office, in 1966 Minister of State for Foreign Affairs and in 1967 Minister of State at the Welsh Office for three years.

Eirene White managed to hold on to the Flintshire constituency for 20 years, in an election by just 72 votes she was succeeded by Barry Jones, now Lord Barry Jones,

White was also chairman of the Fabian Society and the Labor Party NEC 1968–9. She was a governor of the British Film Institute and a board member of the Trade Films Council.

After World War II, White served as a political correspondent for the Manchester Evening News and the BBC before entering politics herself.

She has been recognized by the Women’s Equality Network Wales’ list of 100 Welsh Women, created to mark the contributions of women, past and present, who have made brilliant contributions to our national life.

The Flint City Council now wants to place a purple plaque on City Hall in recognition of the former deputy, who died in 1999, aged 90.

The town hall has submitted a request for authorization for classified construction to the town hall.

Purple plate design as submitted to Flintshire Council

According to the minutes of a Flint City Council meeting in January this year, Delyn MS Hannah Blythyn MS contacted the council “regarding the Wales-wide Purple Plaque campaign and a potential plaque in Flint which acknowledges former MP Eirene White.”

The council agreed to have a plaque on the town hall, it was also agreed that the council would donate £500 to it.

The Purple Plaques campaign was created to improve recognition of outstanding women in Wales and award them a plaque to commemorate their achievements and cement their legacy in Welsh history.

The campaign was launched on International Women’s Day 2017, by a group of volunteers who felt the need for greater recognition of women’s contribution to Welsh life.

Across Wales, there are believed to be 250 mainly blue plaques commemorating notable figures, but the vast majority highlight the achievements of men.

A decision on the application is expected from Flintshire Council next month.

Since Stanley Uzoaru,Owerri

Imo State Governor Hope Uzodimma yesterday described the late Senator Francis Arthur Nzeribe as a great man and politician who will be missed by all.

Uzodimma, speaking at the funeral of the late non-conformist politician at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Oguta, said: “Everyone agrees that Senator Nzeribe was a great man and that his death is delicate. He came a great man, lived a great man and goes a great man. The events surrounding the late senator show that he was a great man both in life and in death.

The Governor further noted that Nzeribe was one of the best and brightest in Igboland and Nigeria and claimed that the late senator was a “common denominator in Nigeria’s political lexicon”.

Uzodimma also wrote in the condolence message, “There is no other way to define a great man other than what you represented here on earth before your passing. May the good Lord grant you eternal mercy and peace from heaven.

Earlier in his homily, Reverend Father Obilor urged the living to always ask for God’s mercy in line with the biblical injunction: “Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy.”

He pointed out that the worst sin in the world is the denial of justice, so he urged the congregation to seek God and do good while they are still alive.

Father Obilor said the late Nzeribe started in time to prepare for his eternal journey, noting that he was a practicing Catholic even until death.

Furthermore, he said that Nzeribe lived for the poor, spoke his mind as a politician and never compromised his personal relationship with his God.

The burial was attended by prominent figures from Imo State and beyond, including the Deputy Governor of Imo State, Professor Placid Njoku, former Governor of Imo State Ikedi Ohakim and his wife, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu and his wife, Chairman of Imo State Council of Elders, HRM Eze Cletus Ilomuanya. , Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe and former INEC President, Professor Maurice Iwu.

With CHARLIE HARPER

JOHN Fetterman doesn’t look like a Washington politician. And that’s an understatement. This former mayor of a Rust Belt relic and current lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania is an NBA-sized white man with a shaved head, goatee, visible tattoos and, to put it politely, a eccentric taste for clothing on the campaign trail. Nor did he follow a traditional path to political prominence. And yet Fetterman won a resounding victory in the primary election this week to secure his place in the November ballot as the Democratic nominee for a U.S. Senate seat from Pennsylvania, critical to his party’s hopes of clinging on to its current precarious majority in the Senate.

Fetterman was a supporter of Bernie Sanders as early as the 2016 presidential primary campaign, and while he certainly embraces many parts of his party’s “progressive” platform, he has made it clear that he decides issues on their merits. individual. This giant man, who looks even taller than his six-foot-eight height by the way he dresses and his casual grooming, has built a reputation for something that’s largely lacking in American politics these days. : integrity.

Here’s what former Pennsylvania Governor and Philadelphia Mayor Ed Rendell had to say recently about Fetterman: “Partly because of his history, partly because of his personality, and partly because of his way of Be, he’s a working-class Democrat… working-class Democrat can watch and feel like he’s watching one of them.Fetterman ran a strong, smart campaign and raised $16 million this spring. He also made headlines by regularly visiting isolated Democrats in the Appalachian hills and valleys of central Pennsylvania where Republicans have predominated since the days of Ronald Reagan.

In a four-way race in Tuesday’s primary election, Fetterman won 60% of the total vote. He won every county in the state. Winning an absolute majority in a contested four-way race is rare, to say the least. Republicans, whose Pat Toomey is stepping down from the seat sought by Fetterman, should be wary in November. They may be up against a politician who voters can believe.

It’s currently unclear who Fetterman will face in November. There was a three-way Republican primary race between hedge fund millionaire David McCormick; a TV doctor, Mehmet Oz, and an incredibly radical right-wing fanatic named Kathy Barnette, who is also a black woman. This race was close and both men are heading for a recount as the margin between them is really small.

Whoever ultimately wins for the GOP isn’t heading for an easy contest six months from now. More and more rarely, but still every once in a while, an American politician steps out of national obscurity to develop a solid base and generate real momentum that may prove irreversible. Based on the evidence so far, John Fetterman could be one of those fascinating mysteries.

“At the heart of his argument, he’s one of those unique candidates who really forms a connection with voters,” a party strategist told reporters. How refreshing.

A million dead

The death toll from COVID in the United States has just exceeded one million, or nearly three percent of the total American population. That would equate to more than a thousand deaths here in the Bahamas, where the toll currently stands at 801. Several American publications have studied the evolution of the pandemic and have come to some interesting conclusions. Here are a few:

The first death in the United States was reported on the last day of February 2020. In seven weeks, the reported death toll reached 34,800, more casualties than in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan combined, plus the terrible potential tally of nine attacks like 9/11. terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.

In eight more months, the death toll from COVID had topped 300,000, and that was just before January 2021, the pandemic’s worst month yet, when 96,000 Americans died. However, in six months last July, that macabre monthly toll had fallen to less than 9,000.

By the end of October 2021, fueled by the arrival of the delta variant, the total reached 744,000 and exceeded the number of Americans who died in the infamous 1918 flu epidemic. Now in the grip of the omicron variant, the United States United are reeling again. And protests against vaxxers and masks are proliferating.

Good news on the ice and on the court in Florida

A record with the South Florida ice and hoops playoff teams is at least partly reassuring. The Florida Panthers took care of business against the Washington Capitals and Alex Ovechkin, who could still break the all-time NHL record now held by Wayne Gretzky. Ovechkin, whose outspoken Russian patriotism put him on the wrong side of American public opinion during the Ukrainian war, is only ahead of Gordy Howe by 21 goals and Gretzky by 114. He is 36 years old. He’s still a prolific and ruthless scorer, but the Panthers are recognized as a ruthless team themselves. Once they got over the jitters of the early playoffs, they prevailed.

Now the Cats face interstate rival Tampa Bay, who beat the Toronto Maple Leafs in their first-round game. The Leafs, one of professional hockey’s Original Six franchises, haven’t won the Stanley Cup since 1967, or a playoff series in 18 years of sustained futility. The Leafs play in Canada’s great metropolis, have a rich history of success and are certainly one of the most revered franchises in the game. Their long lack of success, especially in light of the continued relevance of their Montreal playoff rival playoffs, has been a frustration for many hockey fans, in Canada and elsewhere.

But the Leafs faced a juggernaut in the Lightning, the two-time defending NHL champion. And now the Panthers too. The Cats are not favored by many bettors despite their superior regular season record. Their courage and comeback skills will be put to the test by the stars of Tampa. In Tuesday’s opener, the Panthers crumbled in the third period to Tampa’s relentless power play and lost 4-1, squandering their home advantage for the series. If you support the Panthers, it’s very hard to be optimistic about their chances.

Meanwhile, the Miami Heat host the Boston Celtics along Biscayne Bay in the NBA Eastern Conference Finals. The Heat had a much easier path to this round, and that may be an indication of continued success. Still, the Celtics, who have an even richer history in basketball than the Leafs in hockey, are good. By dethroning the defending champion Milwaukee Bucks, the Celtics remained committed to their league-leading defensive approach and earned enough individual points from their stars to oust Milwaukee.

However, the top-seeded Heat have the number four ranked defense themselves. And both of these teams are playoff tested. The Heat will make their eighth playoff appearance in the past 18 seasons, while the Celtics will make their seventh in the past 15. Miami is looking to qualify for the NBA Finals for the sixth time in the last twelve years. Boston hopes to chain four consecutive defeats in the Conference Finals, including two against the Heat two years ago. The Heat and the Celtics should offer a fascinating and balanced game.

In the West, man-child, 23-year-old Slovenian Luka Doncic, forced the Dallas Mavericks past the heavily favored Phoenix Suns. The Mavs will now face those shrewd championship veterans, the Golden State Warriors. Seth Curry, Klay Thompson and especially Draymond Green will likely win over Doncic and Company, but it was amazing to see Doncic on the floor against Phoenix. He looked like a man against boys on multiple occasions, moving around the perimeter and then to the basket with easy, almost effortless efficiency. But Green and Thompson know how to play defense, as does this entire second-ranked defensive team. Curry will light up the dashboard. The Warriors should win.

Who will they face in the NBA Finals? On Tuesday, the Heat fiddled with the first half. Then their talisman, Jimmy Butler, scored 17 points in a decisive third quarter that the Heat won by 16 points. The hosts secured a crucial triumph in the opener. If they continue like this, the Heat should find themselves facing the Warriors in the Finals. It will be a treat.

UPDATE: Vice President William Ruto on Sunday, May 15 nominated MP Mathira Rigathi Gachagua, as his running mate in the August 9 general election.


On April 8 this year, Rigathi Gachagua – the heir of the late Nahashon Gachagua Reriani and the late Martha Kirigo – made clear his ambitions to become the kingpin of Mount Kenya.

Gachagua, a brother of the first Nyeri County Governor, the late Nderitu Gachagua, recounted how he dedicated his life to public service and improving the lives of Kenyans, especially the people of Mount Kenya.

During his first term as an MP for Mathira Constituency, the MP was first thrust into leadership in 1989 when he was chosen to serve as Deputy Secretary in the Ministry of Home Affairs and of the National Heritage.

Mathira Rigathi Gachagua MP during a press conference in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu county on January 9, 2022.

The standard

In 1990, he was transferred to the Office of the President as a district cadet, before being appointed personal assistant to the head of the civil service in 1991.

Gachagua was appointed to a more senior role after being appointed as the first District Officer in charge of Kakamega District before being transferred to Ng’arua Division in Laikipia District in 1997.

In 2002, the year that marked the end of KANU’s 40-year administration, Gachagua found himself working as President Uhuru Kenyatta’s personal aide when Uhuru made his first bid for the presidency on a KANU ticket.

Gachagua worked as Uhuru’s personal assistant for five years.

When his late brother, Nyeri Governor Nderitu Gachagua was hospitalized, Rigathi Gachagua was accused of imposing his will on the county and acting as temporary governor when the county had a deputy.

In 2017, Rigathi Gachagua was first elected MP for Mathira and quickly made a name for himself as a vocal and confrontational leader.

Although he had been a strong supporter of Uhuru in the past, Gachagua was among the lawmakers who left the Jubilee Party and formed the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) to show their support for DP Ruto.

As the conversation rages over how Ruto’s government will be organised, Gachagua’s name has featured prominently in discussions surrounding the running mate and future Cabinet Secretary of the Interior. He also stood out at the National Conference of UDA Party Delegates, having sat in the front row next to DP Ruto’s wife, Rachel Ruto.

The relationship between Gachagua and Ruto dates back to 2002, when they were both luminaries of KANU. The MP also said he and the DP were neighbors in Karen.

“I have known Ruto for two decades. He’s my neighbor in Karen and our families are close. He’s also a critical thinker,” Gachagua said in an interview.

His rapid political rise has been attributed to his great oratorical skills, his background from a strong political family, and his vast wealth.

His net worth is estimated to be in the billions – and has had run-ins with law enforcement over tenders worth Ksh 12 billion that were awarded to his companies between 2013 and 2017.

Ruto is expected to make his highly speculated decision on who his running mate will be, ending months of speculation.

Kenyans.co.ke learned that the competition is between Gachagua, Governor of Kirinyaga, Anne Mumbi Waiguru, and Senator of Tharaka Nithi, Abraham Kithure Kindiki.

Mathira Rigathi Gachagua MP speaks with Vice President William Ruto during a rally in Kirinyaga County on Saturday, January 29.

Rigathi Gachagua

Gachagua was adamant that Ruto’s running mate must be from the Mount Kenya region. He insists that the promise to bring in the Vice President of the region is what made them support Ruto and walk away from Uhuru.

“Ruto’s running mate must come from the mountains. Before we were joined by the other people we had our own arrangements which we had discussed and my position has been that whatever had been previously agreed cannot change drastically to the detriment of the Mount Kenya area,” said Gachagua during an interview.

Former Abia Governor Orji Uzor Kali has spoken out to “strongly” condemn the murder of Deborah Yakubu by Islamic fanatics.

It comes as other politicians look away from religiously inspired killings, continuing their rush to vote in the 2023 general election.

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar deleted a message to condemn the murder and even threw his helpers under the bus after Islamic extremists threatened to work against his 2023 presidential ambition.

Mr Kali, the Nigerian Senate Chief Whip, called the killing of Ms Yakubu by the Islamic mob “evil, cruel and barbaric”.

He therefore called on the government of Sokoto State to bring the perpetrators of this horrific murder to justice.

The lawmaker’s thoughts were broadcast via a statement he released on Friday.

“Students should not engage in illegitimate acts and as such,” Mr. Kalu said, “the ugly incident should be thoroughly investigated with the aim of bringing the perpetrators to justice.”

Speaking further, the legislator instructed “parents and guardians to inculcate good moral values ​​in their children and wards in order to build a good society.”

He, however, stressed that Islam and Christianity do not support violence and called on Nigerians to embrace peace and unity.

Ms Yakubu, a 200-level home economics student at Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto, was stoned and set on fire by her classmates who accused her of blasphemy against the Prophet Muhammad.

Mr Kalu underlined his “strong condemnation” of the murder and urged the Sokoto government, security agencies and school authorities to work together to uncover the orchestrators of this sad incident.

He sympathized with the family of the deceased, while urging the students of the institution to avoid violence and social vices.

Politician accused of racism after posting meme of Anies Baswedan in traditional Papuan attire https://dawnforgovernor.org/politician-accused-of-racism-after-posting-meme-of-anies-baswedan-in-traditional-papuan-attire/ Thu, 12 May 2022 06:09:22 +0000 https://dawnforgovernor.org/politician-accused-of-racism-after-posting-meme-of-anies-baswedan-in-traditional-papuan-attire/ Indonesian netizens are outraged and mortified, with many calling for the prosecution of politician Ruhut Sitompul over what they say is a racist meme featuring Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan.

Indonesian netizens are outraged and mortified, with many calling for the prosecution of politician Ruhut Sitompul over what they say is a racist meme featuring Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan.

The Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) politician, who is an outspoken critic of Anies, spoke about his trolling game in a tweet dated May 11. In the tweet, Ruhut appeared to poke fun at the sentiment shared by many Betawi residents of Jakarta that Anies is a hardworking governor.

For no immediately apparent reason, Ruhut’s tweet is accompanied by a meme depicting Anies’ face imposed on that of a shirtless man dressed in traditional Papuan clothing.

Netizens were quick to accuse Ruhut of racism and are calling for his prosecution for hate speech under the Electronic Information and Transactions Act (UU ITE). The hashtag #RuhutLanggarUUITE (Ruhut violated UU ITE) is the most trending topic on Twitter in Indonesia today.

Jakarta Metro Police today said they had received a formal hate speech complaint from a Papuan youth group against Ruhut, and pledged to analyze the matter before possibly filing a complaint against the ‘politician.

Ruhut said he was not troubled by the threat of lawsuits, saying he had no intention of poking fun at a race.

He said the tweet merely alluded to the fact that Anies, who is widely seen as a major candidate in the 2024 presidential election, likes to get used to the traditional clothing of each region when visiting.

“In Yogyakarta, he becomes a Yogyakartan. In Central Java, he becomes someone from Banyuwangi. So people say he’s a real Indonesian,” Ruhut said.

“Why [is the tweet seen] as an insult? There is no insult. They are the ones (Anies supporters) who like to insult others.

Anies did not issue a statement on Ruhut’s tweet.

Under the UU ITE, online hate speech is punishable by up to six years in prison.

It should be noted that this is not the first time that Ruhut has been in hot water over political speech. In 2010, the lawyer turned politician turned soap opera star who represented the Democratic Party at the time, called fellow politician Gayus Lumbuun (who at the time represented the PDI-P) an “asshole” and told him to “shut up” during a parliamentary meeting to discuss a huge corruption scandal.

Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia said he never dreamed of going into politics after studying economics and graduating with honors from Buckingham University in 1988.

During the Q&A session after his virtual lecture on the topic: “Ghana’s Role in Africa’s Economic Transformation”, Bawumia told students at the University of Buckingham on Monday May 9 that “I was the most apolitical, I never thought I would.” enter politics. »

Bawumia, then Deputy Governor of the Bank of Ghana, was chosen by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) ahead of the 2008 general election as running mate Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. The duo won the 2016 ballot after a third attempt.

Addressing corruption, Bawumia said the government’s digitization program is part of the measures to remove the canker from the Ghanaian public sector.

“…The most transparent systems we put in place are these digital platforms. For example, when we introduced the football e-ticket, I could sit in my office and watch the minute-by-minute scoreboard to see how many tickets were sold.

“I can do the same for Ghana’s gold sales. I can sit in my office and know how much has been dosed…the digitization that is happening is really shining…corrupt people hate transparency,” Bawumia said.
