This isn’t a trial, it’s a cover up!’ – Democrats angry after Senate leadership releases new rules for Donald Trump’s impeachment trial

Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer has blasted Donald Trump’s impeachment trial as a ‘national disgrace’ after the Senate leadership controlled by Trump’s Republican party released a new set of rules to be followed during the impeachment trial this week.

 

Under the new set of rules released by Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell, both parties
will be given 24 hours spread over two days to present their impeachment case – the Democrats for impeaching and removing, and the Republican party/Trump – for acquittal/dismissal.

 

This isn

 

Also another rule of the impeachment trial in the senate states that phones, electronic devices and journalist won’t be allowed to enter the senate house during the trial and no party will be allowed to subpoena witnesses or documents until after each side has made their case and 16 hours of questions have been asked.

 

If the new rules go into effect, Trump’s trial could quickly be wrapped up before he delivers his State of the Union address in February.

 

According to McConnell, the impeachment time table, as obtained by the Dailymail UK will go this way.

1.Tuesday afternoon: Chuck Schumer, the minority leader gets to present his plan and also has two hours to lay it out;
2. By 6pm: The Senate will go into closed session – meaning cameras are switched off, reporters are thrown out, and senators debate the proposal unwatched and unrecorded. The rules for that debate are unknown;

3.Tuesday evening: The Senate should return to open session to vote on the final rules.

4. Wednesday 9am: Deadline for Trump’s team to ask for an instant dismissal of the articles of impeachment – a possibility which Republicans have said would not pass the Senate.

5…11am: Each side has until then to file their response to motions put forward

6.. 1pm:  If there are no motions to deal with, the Democrats start making their case and assuming that happens;
Friday 1pm: Democrats case has to conclude by now and have taken up no more than 24 hours.

7. Friday 1pm: Trump’s side begin making their case;

Schumer, after becoming aware of the rules set to be voted by the senate called them a ‘cover-up’ designed to hide evidence from the American people.

‘He doesn’t want to hear any of the evidence and he doesn’t want to hear any new evidence. That’s a cover-up, not a trial.’

‘Leader McConnell is going along with President Trump’s cover-up hook, line and sinker,’ the Democrat said.

‘When you look at his resolution, it’s no wonder he delayed it until the last minute. He didn’t want people to study it or know about it.’

‘ After reading his resolution, it’s clear Senator McConnell is hell-bent on making it much more difficult to get witnesses and documents and intent on rushing the trial through,’ Schumer said

Nigerian Institute of Journalism lecturer sacked for sexually assaulting a student

Tene John, a Nigerian Institute of Journalism (NIJ) lecturer has been sacked by the institution’s management for sexually assaulting one of his students Ms Anjola Ogunyemi.

 

The student disclosed that she was sexually assaulted while alone with Mr Tene in his office. Ogunyemi said the randy lecturer who tried to forcefully have sexual intercourse with her, freed her after she promised to allow him have his way next time.

Though the lecturer denied the allegation, the Registrar of the institution confirmed he was sacked after being subjected to a probe.

 

A statement released on Monday January 20 read;

 

 “Our attention has been drawn to a post on the social media, by one of our students, Ms Anjola Ogunyemi in National Diploma One, alleging sexual harassment against one of our part-time lecturers, Mr Tene John.

“Ms Ogunyemi’s petition to the school on the alleged sexual harassment was received on December 19, 2019 – the day of our vacation. And the Provost called her on that same day to acknowledge the receipt of her petition, assuring her that the matter will be looked into appropriately.

“The institution, thereafter, set up a panel of three lecturers: two females and a male. The panel sat and took evidence from the two parties and witnesses concerned. On Friday, January 17, 2020 – the last day of its sitting, the accused and the accuser were made to confront each other at the panel.

“It was difficult for the panel to establish concretely a case of sexual harassment in its report because there were glaring contradictions in the testimonies of the two parties and witnesses.

“We wish to place on record that Ms Ogunyemi walked out on the panel and ran to the social media to tell her story on the day the panel’s final sitting.

“In view of our institution’s zero tolerance for improper conduct on the part of the staff and students, and in light of the interest the matter has generated, the following decisions have been taken: the lecturer concerned, Mr Tene, who has been on our faculty for over a decade has been relieved of his appointment, we thank him for his services and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours.

“Ms Ogunyemi, who has just returned from a one-year suspension over indecent dressing and gross misconduct is advised to adhere strictly to her matriculation oath of channeling her grievances to the authorities of the institution.

“We wish to reiterate that our staff and students are governed by rules and regulations and it is important we comply accordingly.”

The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle was photographed on Tuesday smiling as she took baby Archie and her two dogs for a walk in Vancouver, Canada just two days after her husband, Prince Harry gave an emotional statement explaining why they were both exiting their roles as British royals to become financially independent .

 

Meghan was followed by two Royal protection guards as she walked her Labrador Oz and beagle Guy dogs while carrying baby boy Archie in a baby carrier.

 

Just few hours before Meghan was photographed walking on the streets, a beaming Harry landed in Canada after doing his last official engagements as a British royal.

 

Harry and Meghan stunned the British Kingdom when early this month they announced plans to quit their royal roles, become financially independent and relocate to Canada. A move that has now been regarded to as Megxit in social media circles.

Food

Eight fruits that can boost your ‘sex drive’– By Dr~Protocol

Most people always find ways to improve their sexual experience hence scientists have linked a variety of foods that can boost sex drive.

Keeping the circulatory system in good working order is essential for healthy sex life. Better circulation can lead to an improved sexual response in men and women.

Foods that can help people improve their sex drive are commonly called ‘aphrodisiacs’, named after Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of love.

Certain foods help in increasing the blood flow throughout the body. Your diet arguably has the biggest effect on how the body will function; here are foods that can boost your sex drive;

Strawberries and raspberries

Strawberries and raspberries

The seeds of these fruits are loaded with zinc which is essential for sex for both — men and women. It is believed that women with high level of zinc in their bodies find it easier to prepare for sex.

In men, zinc controls the testosterone level which is responsible for producing the sperm. It is important that men load up on zinc as their zinc levels reduces during intercourse.

Avocados

Avocados

Did you know that the word “avocado” came from the Aztec word for “testicle”? Folic acid and vitamin B6 are both necessary for a healthy sex drive as contained in avocados.

Folic acid pumps the body with energy, while vitamin B6 stabilises the hormones.

Watermelon

Watermelon

Watermelon improves one’s erection and increases the sex drive.

They also contain ‘citrulline’ which releases amino acids and arginine in the body. Arginine is responsible for vascular health.

The truth is this juicy tropical fruit does so much more than replenishing your body with fluids.

Almonds

Almonds

Almonds contain arginine which improves circulation and relaxes blood vessels.

This amino acid found in almonds helps you maintain an erection.

Walnuts

Walnuts

Walnuts are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, healthy fats that boost dopamine.

It also contains arginine, an amino acid that increases the production of nitric oxide, which relaxes blood vessels and increases circulation.

Oysters

Oysters

Oysters have been associated with increased sex drive since the time of ancient Rome. With so much history behind it, the whole oyster-libido linkage probably has some truth to it.

Oysters are high in zinc, which is essential for proper functioning of the male reproductive system

Bananas

Bananas

Apart from the obvious shape of the fruit, it’s the potassium in bananas that can help improve your sex drive.

Since potassium helps increase muscle strength and contraction, achieving orgasms can become much easier.

Additionally, bromelain helps produce testosterone. Add a frozen banana to your post-workout smoothie or add banana slices to overnight oats for some natural sweetness.

Tigernut

Tigernut

Medically, this may not have been proven but traditionally, tiger nuts has been used as an alternative medicine for the treatment of erectile dysfunction and related problems.

Its rich content of the Vitamin E also helps in men fertility issues as it aids in the free and active movement of the sperm which will easily swim to fertilize the egg leading to easy conception.

It also contains other vital minerals which will help boost sperm count and also improves its thickness. It also improves sex drives in both men and women.

Female patient caught on CCTV stealing UBTH Doctor’s phone

A female patient was caught on CCTV stealing a doctor’s phone at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH).

 

Chief Medical Director of the Hospital, Prof. Darlington Obaseki who narrated the incident at the end of the year/curtail party organized by the management of the Hospital for its staff on Thursday December 26, said the patient was confronted after she returned to the medical facility to continue her treatment.

 

He said;

 

“The patient was admitted into the ward and that while she was there, she sneakily went to where the doctor kept his phone and stole it.

“No sooner than the patient left, the doctor came looking for his phone and he could not find it.

“When the doctor came to report that his phone has been stolen, I ordered that they should go to the CCTV and check who could have possibly gone there to steal his phone.

“Luckily, the CCTV revealed that a patient who was admitted into the ward was the one who went there to steal it.

“When she was confronted with the issue of the stolen phone, she admitted to the claim and the phone was retrieved from her.”

AKB – NEWS AFRIKAN – South Africa initiation schools suspended after circumcision deaths

Initiates are smeared with white clay on their face and are covered in red and white blanketsImage copyrightGETTY IMAGES
Image captionThe rituals associated with the passage into manhood are highly secretive

The South African authorities have suspended several initiation schools where boys have died in recent weeks taking part in circumcision ceremonies.

The country’s religious and cultural commission said the schools in different areas of the Eastern Cape would be suspended for a year.

It called for the arrest of those responsible for at least 20 deaths.

The initiation into manhood involves spending weeks in mountainous areas in harsh conditions.

Why do people get circumcised?

Every year, tens of thousands of initiates aged between 15 and 17 spend time in seclusion in the bush where they are taught about how to be upstanding men in society.

But exactly what happens there is kept a secret.

Ukwaluka, or traditional initiation, is seen as a necessary part of the passage from boyhood to manhood by some of the country’s largest ethnic groups, including the Xhosa and Ndebele.

Image captionThe homecoming, seen here for Ndebele men in 2013, is seen as a time of celebration

For many who practise the ritual, the homecoming is a time of celebration, where a feast is prepared for the family and community to enjoy. It is a celebration of the young men’s safe return and more importantly their new adult status.

But sometimes things go terribly wrong, with some initiates dying or left disfigured from a botched circumcision.

Hundreds of boys were taken to hospital last year where they were treated for penile amputation, septic wounds and dehydration.

Why is there a ‘circumcision season’ and what happens?

South Africa’s circumcision season typically falls during two periods, in June and in December.

This is when most boys are home from school and have time to complete the rituals, which can last up to a month.

When young Xhosa boys are aged between 15 and 17, their families prepare to take them to an initiation school – where they will be under the care of an “ingcibi”, a traditional surgeon, and an “ikhankatha”, a traditional nurse.

  • More than 400 boys have died from botched circumcisions in South Africa since 2012
  • South Africa’s initiations seasons are in June (winter) and December (summer)
  • Tens of thousands of young boys undergo male circumcision in the bush, carried out by traditional surgeons
  • More than 100 boys were rescued from unregistered school in June this year
  • Dehydration, malnutrition and wounds going septic are the leading causes of deaths of initiates

Presentational grey line

The surgeon performs the circumcision, while the traditional nurse looks after treating the wound as well as the initiate’s daily needs, including food.

The practice itself is steeped in secrecy. So secretive in fact that the boys are not allowed to speak about what happens while there. Women are not allowed to go near a circumcision school as this is believed to be a bad omen.

Some have complained that it is this secrecy that has got in the way of addressing the challenges and criticisms of what happens when the boys are away from home.

If children are dying why not just outlaw the practice?

Circumcision is steeped in tradition that has been passed down through many generations. It offers a profound cultural connection with the past.

And while some have described it as an outdated and increasingly dangerous tradition, the right to practise one’s culture is protected by South Africa’s constitution.

But what is causing the deaths?

Most of the deaths have been as a result of dehydration and wounds going septic, pointing to a lack of proper care and ill-treatment of initiates at the schools.

Many of those who have died were attending initiation schools which had not been registered with the authorities. These schools are on the rise because initiation has become a lucrative exercise with the surgeons and nurses being paid for their work.

Media captionNearly 80 boys and young men died in 2013 in South Africa

There is also a problem that some underage children, who may not be able to cope, go through the ritual without their parents’ approval.

In June, more than 100 boys were rescued from unregistered schools in the Eastern Cape province.

“We are seeing the mushrooming of these illegal initiation schools, where individuals are inviting people to send their boys at an exorbitant fee. That’s why we are saying it’s now the commercialisation of the practice which is against tradition,

The ingcibi now need to be registered before being allowed to carry out circumcisions.

The government is also now paying for medics to visit the registered schools to check on the well-being of the boys. It is harder to check up on the unregistered schools, because of their illicit nature.

Should the government take over the circumcisions?

Government-funded health centres now also perform circumcisions as an alternative to the traditional route, but cultural purists see this as a Westernisation of their custom.

Traditionally, initiation has been a private matters, usually arranged by the boy’s father or a male elder within the family.

Image captionThe initiation ceremonies are an important part of cultural life for many South Africans

The role of the elder would be to find a reputable surgeon in the village with a proven track record.

So any greater involvement of the state may not be welcome.

Traditional circumcision remains a contentious issue in South Africa even within the communities that practise it.

While there are no easy answers, many agree that young boys should not be dying simply for wanting to be recognised as a man.

Trump impeachment: Committee sends charges to full House for vote House Judiciary panel votes along party lines to recommend Trump be impeached for obstructing Congress, abuse of power.

Washington, DC – A key committee of the US House of Representatives voted along party lines on Friday to approve two articles of impeachment against Donald Trump, charging the president with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

The action by the Judiciary Committee sets up a historic vote next week in the full House that could make President Trump only the third president in US history to be impeached.

Democrats who control the House accuse the president of betraying the public trust by withholding $391m in military aid to pressure Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to announce an investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden, one of Trump’s top political rivals.

president of the United States shook down a foreign power to interfere in an election. That’s wrong,” said Democrat Jamie Raskin during Thursday’s marathon hearing of the House Judiciary panel.

Democrats cited evidence produced in a three-month investigation by the Intelligence Committee into allegations by a whistle-blower that Trump sought a promise from Zelenskyy to investigate Biden in a July 25 telephone call. Trump also wanted an investigation of a discredited narrative promoted by Russia that it was Ukraine that hacked the US elections in 2016.

Trump has denied any wrongdoing, calling the impeachment inquiry a “witch-hunt” and “sham”.

The Intelligence Committee held public hearings with 12 witnesses and produced text messages and emails showing Trump and key administration officials pressured Zelenskyy to announce the politically motivated investigations.

Nine administration officials refused to comply with House requests to testify, complying with orders from Trump and White House lawyers not to cooperate with the impeachment inquiry.

Instead of pursuing enforcement of subpoenas for testimony in federal court, House Democratic leaders decided to move forward quickly with the articles of impeachment leaving a number of unanswered questions.

The speed of House action has opened Democrats to criticism they are treating Trump unfairly by failing to assemble an undisputed set of facts to support the allegations Trump orchestrated a pressure campaign in Ukraine.

Democrats, however, have already won several lower-court rulings upholding congressional subpoenas in other investigations, proceedings that have taken up to eight months and are still subject to appeals by Trump.

Republicans argued a higher level of proof was required to charge the president with any criminal offence and accused the Democrats of putting forward a nebulous, ambiguous charge of abuse of power.

“No abuse of power ever took place and there certainly isn’t enough support here in the evidence presented,” said Republican Steve Chabot.

During more than 12 hours of debate in the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, Republicans sought to position Trump’s actions as reasonable within his authority to advance US anti-corruption policy in Ukraine, a notoriously corrupt country, they said.

Democrats responded that the argument Trump was actually concerned about corruption is false, even “laughable”, Representative David Cicilline said.

Trump never mentioned the word “corruption” in his phone call with Zelenskyy and the US defence department had already certified Ukraine met anti-corruption benchmarks, Cicilline said.

“We can argue about the facts all day long, but the facts are pretty clear. The president abused his power,” said Democrat Val Demings.

Trump has claimed there was no “quid pro quo” (Latin for “this for that”). Republicans pointed out that Zelenskyy has repeatedly said he felt no pressure from Trump.

Democrats said Trump was continuing to pressure Zelenskyy who needs White House backing as he seeks negotiations with Russian President Vladimir Putin over the continuing war in eastern Ukraine.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday the full House will take up impeachment next week. If the House votes to impeach Trump, a trial would be held in the Republican-led Senate.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said such a trial would be the chamber’s “first order of business” in January. A conviction, which would remove Trump from office, is unlikely at this point.

It is unclear how quickly the Senate trial would be. McConnell has indicated he would like a swift trial, but Trump on Friday said he would not mind a full trial, with a number of witnesses, including Biden and the whistle-blower, whose complaint led to the impeachment inquiry.

Legal scholars: Trump engaged in impeachable conduct

Many legal experts have supported the Democratic view of the evidence and constitutional law at issue in the impeachment of Trump.

“There is ample evidence that Trump directed a scheme to seek an announcement about sham investigations, to withhold military aid and to condition one on the other,” said Barbara McQuade, a law professor at the University of Michigan and a former federal prosecutor.

“Republicans are demanding a direct statement from President Trump using the term ‘quid pro quo’. This is an unnecessary red herring,” McQuade told Al Jazeera.

“The classic example is that, even if no witness testified that it was raining outside, you may conclude that it was raining outside from evidence that people entered a building with wet umbrellas. The same is true here,” she said.

One legal scholar who has supported Republican defenders of Trump is Jonathan Turley, a law professor at the George Washington University law school. Turley argued in testimony to the committee last week that Congress must find the president violated specific criminal statutes.

But Turley’s is an unconventional view among constitutional lawyers and more than 500 legal scholars rejected it in an open letter posted December 3 on a public website.

Trump’s “conduct need not be criminal to be impeachable”, the legal scholars’ letter said.

“The standard here is constitutional; it does not depend on what Congress has chosen to criminalise,” the letter said.

By seeking to corrupt an election, which is the primary check the Constitution places on a president, Trump is attempting to put himself beyond the reach of voters, the letter argues.

“Overwhelming evidence made public to date forces us to conclude that President Trump engaged in impeachable conduct,” the letter said.

Editorial boards of major US newspapers USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, the Boston Globe and the Washington Post have concluded that there is sufficient evidence to impeach Trump.

But American public opinion is split. A running average of polls of US public opinion compiled by RealClearPolitics.com suggests 47 percent of Americans say Trump should be impeached and removed from office, while 46 percent say he should not be impeached.

Prosecution given final chance in Nigeria gay trial

The trial of 47 men charged with same-sex public displays of affection in Nigeria has been adjourned until February.

The prosecution failed to provide any witnesses against the accused for the second day running.

The trial was not open to the media and was adjourned by the judge with a warning to the prosecution team that February would be their final chance, according to an eyewitness.

The men who were arrested at a birthday party in 2018 have all pleaded not guilty to the charges.

At the time of their arrest their faces were shown on Nigerian television stations.

Some of the accused have told the BBC the publicity around the arrest has led to them becoming estranged from their families and losing their jobs.

According to Alexandro Abia and Kenneth Eboh, they were walking in Zagreb in mid-November, when Croatian police officers took them to a local station.

After being questioned, they say they were dropped off in a van near the border and told at gunpoint to walk to Bosnia.

They say the Croatian authorities didn’t let them return to their hotel to get their passports which showed they had valid visas.

The Croatian government has denied this, stating that the students disappeared after checking out of their hotel voluntarily.

Mr Abia and Mr Eboh say since arriving in Bosnia over three weeks ago they’ve been in two migrant camps, and describe the conditions as poor.
