It is believed the memo touches on the FBI and Justice Department’s use of illegally obtained surveillance warrants related to the Steele dossier and to the unmasking of Trump associates in intelligence reports by the Obama administration. this is Third World politics right here in America.
Obama might be subject to, well it’s premature to judge him until the facts are in front of the American public.

A group of 65 Republican lawmakers are calling on the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee for the “immediate” public release of a memo alleging widespread surveillance warrant abuses by the Justice Department and FBI.

President Trump is, unfortunately correct about the shitholes in the world. Haiti is pathetic and if Trumps enemies had any honor they would be traveling to Haiti to help with it’s sewage problems.

The crap and urine doesn’t go into a hole. It flows down the middle of the mud streets. It would be better if Haiti was a shithole because at least all of the crap would go into a hole instead of rolling along the street. 

Per NPR, Port-au-Prince, Haiti, is one of the largest cities in the world without a central sewage system. There are no sewers connecting sinks, showers and toilets to hulking wastewater treatment plants. Most of the more than 3 million people in the metro area use outhouses, and much of that waste ends up in canals, ditches and other unsanitary dumping grounds where it can contaminate drinking water and spread disease. If there is humanity in the world, how come it doesn’t fix Haiti’s sewage problems?

South Africa is another country that should be called a “shithole” because of the collapse of the sewage systems in the main city of Johannesburg.
Johannesburg Water on Wednesday advised residents of Northriding SA not to drink tap water due to sewer contamination.

”Johannesburg Water suspects possible sewer contamination within the water network in parts of Northriding. We strongly advise residents residing in the area not to consume tap water until further notice. We are investigating this high priority issue and will advise residents when the network is stabilised,” the city’s water utility said in a statement.

For the past two months a number of residents in Wells Estate, Port Elizabeth, SA have been living with raw sewage flowing into their yards. Several streets are also flooded with sludge. 

Crime levels in Cape Town, a port city in South Africa and the capital of Western Cape Province, are very high, even though it’s the country’s legislative capital. In recent years, it has consistently been ranked among the most violent cities in the world,

As of March 2016, Numbeo rated the crime in Durban at 87.89 out of a possible crime score of 100, indicating it as being very high. Beyond Durban’s city limits, Kwa-Zulu-Natal province in 2015 was reported as the most dangerous province in South Africa. 

Pietermaritzburg, South Africa is both the province’s second largest city (after Durban) and the capital of Kwa-Zulu-Natal Province in the nation of South Africa. It has very high crime levels, with a crime rating of 87.5 out of a possible crime score of 100, according to Numbeo as of January 2016.

When xenophobic attacks flare up elsewhere in South Africa, they also tend to quickly spread to Pietermaritzburg as well.

Rustenburg City, South Africa is in the North West Province of South Africa. It has very high crime levels, and is rated at 85.71 out of a possible crime score of 100, according to a 2015 Numbeo report. Of all of the cities in the North West Province in 2015, Rustenburg had the highest total cases of criminal activities with 11,117 cases in 2015, according to Crime Statistics South Africa.

Armed robbers in the city are known to even climb up perimeter fences and subdue guards, and others have invaded waterfront compounds by way of boats. Criminals also target vehicle occupants in traffic, and break into stationary cars. Some of Lagos’ crime hot-spots are airport roads in the days or evenings, as well as banks and grocery stores. Street gangs dubbed “area boys” cause terror in the mainland of the city when they clash.

The Economy –

The US stock market is a barometer of the economic activity of the entire country. Since Donald Trump was elected President it has skyrocketed.

On Wednesday, January 17th, 2018, the Dow broke 26,000 points for the first time in its history.  As a result the Dow broke the record for the fastest 500, 1,000, 2,000, 3,000, 4,000, 5,000, 6,000 and 7,000 point increases between major milestones in the history of the Dow. All of these increases occurred since Donald Trump was elected President.

The Dow today stands at 26,071.7.  It is up 42% since the 2016 election and 31% since last year’s inauguration.  The Dow had more all-time closing highs in 2017 than any year in history.  President Trump enjoys 95 all-time highs since his election and 78 since his inauguration.  The Dow is up an amazing 7,739 points since the election.

 Americans of all walks of life are seeing their 401k’s explode in value because of President Trump. Marvelous. Obama couldn’t do that. He just couldn’t.

From the 2016 election to the end of 2017, stocks rose 26 percent, propelled by advances in tech stocks, according to Wilshire Associates. That’s a paper gain of $6.7 trillion.

Since his election win, the Trump rally has added $6.7 trillion to the nation’s wealth. Anyone with a 401k, an IRA, college savings, retirement savings, mutual funds. Anyone with a dime in the market has taken a piece of that $6.7 trillion.

Also, during this presidency, 5 American companies have emerged as global technology leaders. You know their names: Apple, Amazon, Alphabet, Microsoft and Facebook. It’s a technology world, and American companies have seized the future.

It’s astonishing that the world of money is so exuberant, while the political world is so contemptuous of this president and his policy of growth.
