Foreign Affairs / Donald Trump’s Inaugural Speech by Shawntops(m): 7:48pm On Jan 20, 2017
The following is the complete text of Donald Trump’s inaugural address delivered Friday after he was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States:
Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans, and people of the world: thank you.
We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and to restore its promise for all of our people.
Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for years to come.
We will face challenges. We will confront hardships. But we will get the job done.
Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent. Thank you.
Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another, or from one party to another — but we are transferring power from Washington, DC and giving it back to you, the American people.
For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost.
Washington flourished — but the people did not share in its wealth.
Politicians prospered — but the jobs left, and the factories closed.
The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.
Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.
That all changes — starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment: it belongs to you.
It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America.
This is your day. This is your celebration.
And this, the United States of America, is your country.
What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.
January 20th, 2017 will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.
The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.
Everyone is listening to you now.
You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement the likes of which the world has never seen before.
At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction: that a nation exists to serve its citizens.
Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves.
These are the just and reasonable demands of a righteous public.
But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists: Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system, flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of knowledge; and the crime and gangs and drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.
This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.
We are one nation — and their pain is our pain. Their dreams are our dreams; and their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home, and one glorious destiny.
The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.
For many decades, we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry;
Subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military;
We’ve defended other nation’s borders while refusing to defend our own;
And spent trillions and trillions of dollars overseas while America’s infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay.
We’ve made other countries rich while the wealth, strength, and confidence of our country has disappeared over the horizon.
One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions upon millions of American workers left behind.
The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed across the entire world.
But that is the past. And now we are looking only to the future.
We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power.
From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land.
From this moment on, it’s going to be only America First. America First.
Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit American workers and American families.
We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies, and destroying our jobs. Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength.
I will fight for you with every breath in my body — and I will never, ever let you down.
America will start winning again, winning like never before.
We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We will bring back our wealth. And we will bring back our dreams.
We will build new roads, and highways, and bridges, and airports, and tunnels, and railways all across our wonderful nation.
We will get our people off of welfare and back to work — rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor.
We will follow two simple rules: Buy American and Hire American.
We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world — but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first.
We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example for everyone to follow.
We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones — and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth.
At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other.
When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.
The Bible tells us, “how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.”
We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity.
When America is united, America is totally unstoppable.
There should be no fear — we are protected, and we will always be protected.
We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement and, most importantly, we will be protected by God.
Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger.
In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving.
We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action — constantly complaining but never doing anything about it.
The time for empty talk is over.
Now arrives the hour of action.
Do not let anyone tell you it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America.
We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again.
We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to..... Read more @ http://www.shawntops.com/2017/01/full-text-donald-trumps-inaugural-speech.html
Politics / Crisis Rocks APC In North-west by Shawntops(m): 10:51am On Jan 07, 2017
Ahead of the 2019 general decisions, an emergency of certainty among pioneers of the All Progressives Congress has raised its head in the North-West section of the gathering.

PUNCH accumulated in Abuja on Friday that the emergency in the Kano and Kaduna state sections of the gathering was debilitating to destroy the zonal authority.

A portion of the gathering pioneers with eyes on the gathering's ticket at different levels in the 2019 general races are battling filthy over moves to control the gathering structure in the different states and also at the national level.

A few mystery gatherings assembled to get control over a portion of the fighters have so far not yielded the craved outcomes as some of them have begun an open war of whittling down.

On December 30, 2016, the North-West Zonal Woman Leader, Hajiya Aisha Kaita, blamed the Zonal National Vice Chairman, Inuwa Abdulkadir, of abusing N21m implied for the obtainment of furniture for the zonal office.

She additionally blamed him for predisposition in the treatment of the emergency in the Kano and Kaduna state sections of the gathering.

In particular, she told writers, "I have it on great power that the zonal National Vice Chairman in the individual of Alhaji Inuwa Abdulkadir without any help opened and works a financial balance for the sake of the North-West zonal advisory group with him as the sole signatory to the record in complete infringement of Article 23 (iii) of the gathering's constitution.

"Besides, as a chose individual from the zonal board of trustees, I am mindful that the Presidential Campaign Council stores implied for the zone were abused by the zonal executive."

Accordingly, Abdulkadir said in opposition to her claims, the main record the zone works was the one opened and regulated by the gathering's national secretariat.

He additionally said to the best of his insight, no one had made any settlement to the record from March 2015 to date, taking note of that he hosted been keeping up the gathering's zonal secretariat and vehicle from his own assets and tested anybody with an opposite data to make the proof open.

While expelling Kaita's affirmations as "unadulterated" devilishness, Abdulkadir said the lady pioneer was showcasing a script composed for her by the Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, and a previous Kano State Governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso.

The Zonal National Vice Chairman told writers in Abuja on Friday, "They (El-Rufai and Kwankwaso) are playing governmental issues. I have a few requirements as a pioneer of this gathering; they are from my zone. I am driving them; I don't have to go into some sort of points of interest of what they expect to accomplish, either with me or any other person. I am speaking to every one of my individuals to be decent, to be more responsive and capable in the direct of this session of legislative issues.

"They have yearnings which are true blue and they are qualified for them. They can seek to whatever office they wish as per the constitution of our gathering and the constitution of the land, however there must be respectability.

"Our gathering won't acknowledge a circumstance whereby there will be wilderness and we won't support anything that will realize disharmony among our individuals. I rehash that it is honest to goodness for anyone to seek to any office he needs without going along these lines."

He affirmed that a week prior to the lady pioneer tended to columnists, El-Rufai's media collaborators had trusted in a writer that their main would bring him on as to the emergency in the state section of the APC.

The media assistants, he additionally said, had likewise uncovered that their central would accomplish his point by collaborating with Kwankwaso, who is similarly wronged over the treatment of the emergency in the Kano State section of the gathering.

Abdulkadir said, "This did not astound me on account of the past experiences I had with their essential (El-Rufai) and his dangers and upheavals. On a few events, I had gatherings with him when, as the pioneer of the gathering in the zone, I made energetic interest for him to take authority and drive a procedure that would orchestrate, accommodate and set the gathering in the state.

"One of such interests I made was within the sight of different governors from the zone in his office, yet his response was unpredictable and he undermined to thrash me and keep me from coming into Kaduna.

"I kept my quiet as a pioneer, considering the instability of Kaduna State as far as political response which can't simply be disregarded, and the chaperon danger it postures versus the huge goodwill and bolster the gathering is appreciating in Kaduna State.

"Alternate governors have a similar worry with me and he was conciliated and it was concurred, after conferences with all worried, to name a compromise board of trustees under the chairmanship of Governor Aminu Bello Masari to put some more endeavors in accommodating our individuals."

As per him, the representative's hesitance to collaborate with the Masari-drove advisory group is slowing down its work.

He likewise reviewed that the emergency shaking the Kaduna State section of the gathering started from the direct of congresses for the race of gathering administrators in the state and that it was later persisted to the lead of the governorship primaries.

The gathering pioneer likewise clarified that when El-Rufai developed as the gathering's competitor and picked the previous state party director as running mate, El-Rufai and his crusade group declined to perceive and permit the delegate administrator work in that limit.

Talking on the emergency in the Kano State section, Abdulkadir reviewed that the zonal administration, on receipt of an appeal to from the expelled state administrator of the gathering, Umar Haruna Doguwa, who was said to be faithful to Kwankwaso, had challenged his expulsion from office by the state official board of trustees.

As per him, if any of the gatherings to the question is not happy with the choice of the zone, despite everything they have a privilege to interest higher powers.

Accordingly, Kwankwaso said the Zonal National Vice Chairman was being practical with reality as to the circumstance in Kano State.

The previous representative, now a congressperson, who talked through his representative, Abdulsalam Aminu, said, "Abdulkadir can't constitute himself into a "one-man party authority."

"With respect to the Kano issue, no choice was taken at the meeting in Dutse. Regardless of the possibility that the meeting was legitimately constituted and led and choices taken in that bearing (to maintain the evacuation of the previous director), the choice should be imparted to the national secretariat."

Romance / How To Get Past The 'friend Zone' by Shawntops(m): 8:20pm On Dec 30, 2016
You know this guy or bae you’ve been friends with for so long, everyone thinks you are dating and you have to keep correcting people that ‘We are just friends’, but somewhere in your mind, you really want to get past the Friend-zone to Date-zone.
To get past the friend zone and increase the likelihood that your ‘friend’ will begin to see you as a potential date, here are some great tips, hope you’ll find them helpful.

1. Be a little scare. Absence they say, makes the heart grow fonder. Don’t be totally AWAL, just be a little scare and be sweet when they eventually reach you. A little bit of unavailability will make your friend miss you and long for you more.

2. Put more effort in your appearance. When you are going to see them, don’t just put on anything as you will do with your buddies. Make an extra effort to look good. It shows that you care about your appearance and how they see you.

3. Be mindful how you act. Although it is important that you be yourself always, but really, you wouldn’t be your everyday self if you were with someone you want to impress. Be graceful or dapper as the case may be.

4. Be a little Flirty. Now be careful with this one, don’t be too obvious, but pass the message right. For girls, flirty in this case could just mean, rest on his shoulder ones a while, look into his eyes and smile sweetly. For guys, hold her while you walk along, be gentle with her and don’t...

Politics / 10 Things That Annoyed President Muhammed Buhari In 2016 by Shawntops(m): 5:16pm On Dec 28, 2016
Governor Ayo Fayose

“Every one of my trips can be politically or economically assessed. I recall that the first trip I had was to go to Chad and Niger. The trip was mainly because of Nigeria’s security.

“I have not seen any frivolous journey that I undertook. I understand that the Governor of Ekiti State (Ayo Fayose) said that every trip I make costs Nigeria at least $1m. I do not know how he worked that out. But every trip that I have made, there must be economic and political reasons that justified them. Those who do not see it the way the government sees it have the right not to agree and say whatever they like. But we will try and give them the appropriate reply.”

Aisha Buhari

“I don’t know which party my wife belongs to, but she belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room. So I claim superior knowledge over her and the rest of the opposition, because in the end I have succeeded. It’s not easy to satisfy the whole Nigerian opposition parties or to participate in the government.
“I am sure you have a house. You know where your kitchen is. You know where your living room is, and I believe your wife looks after all of that, even if she is working.”


“The corruption we met at personal and institutional levels was unbelievable. Corruption was turning into a culture. After we came in, people started realising the truth. Nigeria will either kill corruption or corruption will kill Nigeria in the long run. It has not been easy for another party to come in and get things done properly, especially with the new economic reality of $37 per barrel of oil, against the $100 for the period, and there was no savings, no infrastructure on the ground.”


“On the fight against corruption vis-à-vis the judiciary, Nigerians will be right to say that is my main headache for now. If you reflect on what I went through for 12 years, when I wanted to be the President, I attempted three times and on the fourth attempt, through God and the use of technology, it was possible for Nigerians to elect an APC candidate as President.

“I am worried that the expectation of the public is yet to be met by the judiciary with regard to the removal of delay and the toleration of delay tactics by lawyers. When cases are not concluded, the negative impression is given that crime pays. So far, the corruption cases filed by government are not progressing as speedily as they should in spite of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act of 2015 essentially because the courts allow some lawyers to frustrate the reforms introduced by law.”

Niger Delta militants

“We are trying to speak with their leaders, to know how many groups there are. And, we are also working with the oil companies. The militants engage in sophisticated sabotage, using skills they had gained from training either by the government, or the oil companies, to vandalise installations deep in the sea. We need to understand who the real agitators are, and engage (in dialogue) with them, so that confidence can be restored in the region. The Niger Delta situation is more complex, since the militants have no central command, and some of them are mere extortioners.”

Politics / Ondo Election - Winners & Loser by Shawntops(m): 9:18pm On Nov 28, 2016
Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu is Governor-choose of Ondo State. That is no more extended news.
Be that as it may, this decision left us with a few victors and failures.

Here's a speedy summary:


1. Rotimi Akeredolu (epithet: Aketi)
At the point when the greatest political adoptive parent in the South West conflicts with you regardless you win huge, you certainly merit some regard.

Time to put some regard on Aketi's name.

Aketi in single word? Supervisor.

2. President Muhammadu Buhari
He's supervising a wavering economy and dealing with a disillusioned and discouraged citizenry.
Ondo and Edo should be the choice for the overseeing political gathering.
On the proof of two State appointive triumphs on the skip for his APC, Buhari can manage the cost of a grin and some back rub again in the other room.

3. Saraki, Fashola, Fayemi, Okorocha
The quartet broke positions with the Bourdillon arm of APC and piped assets into an Aketi triumph.
Senate President Bukola Saraki more likely than not been calmed not to possess a similar platform with Bola Tinubu on the battle field in Ondo.
While it was advantageous for Governors Ambode, Aregbesolaand Ajimobi to disregard Aketi's crusade mobilizes, Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha indicated Aketi and the Ondo APC, sufficient support.
He was joined by Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun.
Clergymen Babatunde Fashola and Kayode Fayemi would regularly have run with Tinubu's blacklist arranges, yet they stuck by their President's decision.

Great move. Champs.

4. Owo hub
Akeredolu hails from Owo and for quite a while, that geopolitical zone in the South West State had understood left of the power condition.
The Owo/Ose hub of the North hasn't created a Governor since 1979.
Active Governor Olusegun Mimiko hails from Ondo focal.
The South created Olusegun Agagu (Okitipupa) in 2003.
Adebayo Adefarati (chose Governor in 1999) was from Akoko, North of Ondo.
Owo was legitimized to have felt this was their opportunity to create a Governor from their area of the State and they did.


5. Jimoh Ibrahim
Ibrahim was excited when his PDP lost.
He made a point to waste his gathering's chance in court.
When the court controlled in Eyitayo Jegede's support, the PDP was playing make up for lost time.
What's more, Ibrahim's laugh could be gotten notification from miles away.


1. Bola Tinubu
Gracious well, where do we begin from?
Asiwaju was miserable after Aketi stretched out beyond his favored applicant, Olusegun Abraham.
Think about who was among the main arrangement of people to pen the Governor-choose a celebratory note?

2. PDP
What a wreck the PDP was, some time recently, amid and after the Ondo race.
The once administering party still can't resolve an inside emergency that has abandoned it with two factional Chairmen, two factional competitors before the Ondo decision and two factional hopefuls before the Edo race.
It's disastrous that the greatest restriction party in the land still can't start acting responsibly in 2016.
Epic fall flat.

3. Eyitayo Jegede
What was he anticipating?
It's a wonder that Eyitayo still surveyed second subsequent to learning he was the substantive hopeful, 48 hours before the principal vote was thrown in outrage.
Like his PDP, Eyitayo arranged.......

Sports / “I Have Everything To Win The Ballon D’or” – Ronaldo Says by Shawntops(m): 6:58pm On Nov 20, 2016
After winning the Champions League and Euro 2016 in what he described as his best season, Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo has set his sight on the prestigious Ballon d’Or.

And Portugal captain believes he has done everything possible to win the 2016 edition.

The 31-year-old is among the favourites to claim France Football’s award for the world’s best player after a stellar 12 months for club and country.

The forward scored 51 goals in 48 matches in all competitions for Real Madrid last season, including 16 in 12 games as coach Zinedine Zidane’s side won the trophy for the second time in three years.

He led Portugal to their first major title at Euro 2016 championship scoring three times to help them reach the final, where they beat host France 1-0.

Ronaldo, who has been criticised for some of his performances this season struck a hat-trick as Madrid beat city rivals Atletico Madrid at the Vicente Calderon on Saturday, prompting Zidane to claim that any debate over who should win the Ballon d’Or should now end.

And the former Manchester United player himself feels he could not have done any more to earn the prize following what he considers to have been the best season of his illustrious career.

He told Telefoot, “I’ve done everything for this season.

“We won the Champions League, I won the Euros with Portugal. The vote doesn’t depend on me and I don’t want to be obsessed with it.

“But if you ask me if I want to win the Ballon d’Or, I’d say yes. This year has been amazing for me, with all the trophies. It’s my best season, no doubt about that.”

The winner of the award will be voted for by a panel of journalists from across the world, and will be announced on the 13th of next month.

Sports / “guardiola Made The Greatest Mistake For Replacing Hart With Bravo” – Peter Reid by Shawntops(m): 6:52pm On Nov 20, 2016
Guardiola quickly made it clear that Hart was not suited to the style of football he is trying to implement at the Etihad Stadium, and brought in Bravo from Barcelona before sending the England No.1 out on loan to Torino.

The Chilean has had a couple of shaky moments during his time at City so far – most notably in his debut in the Manchester derby and with his red card at Camp Nou – but his generally calm use of the ball has contributed to the build-up play that Guardiola demands.

But Reid agrees with the many Man City fans who believe Hart is a better goalkeeper and should still be No.1.

“It’s been well documented that he wants Bravo to come out and play from the back, but I think Joe Hart is a better goalkeeper than Bravo, and has got better feet,” Reid told Goal .

“It’s just a matter of what football’s like, it’s about opinions. I don’t agree with Pep on this one but he’s got a great record, so time will tell if he’ll be right on the goalkeeping one, but certainly I think it’s a mistake.”

“Let’s put it this way, if you look at teams who win big trophies, and you look at the goalkeeper, you look at [Manuel] Neuer, you look at [Peter] Schmeichel, [Edwin] Van der Sar, you look at [Petr] Cech, I don’t see that at Manchester City.

“I think you’ve got to have a top-class keeper and for me he’s a very good keeper, but he’s not a top one.”

Reid does believe City are doing well under the Spaniard and has been impressed with their attacking play, but is yet to be convinced by the Blues’ defending, and says they still need several new signings – including a replacement for Bravo.

“He likes to press and get the ball back early and he likes to go and play. I’m still not convinced about them defensively at this moment in time but certainly the attacking brand of play is really exciting.

“But I think they need three or four signings to be honest.

“If he doesn’t fancy Hart I think he’s got to get a better goalkeeper, I think [John] Stones has got all the attributes but I think he needs another centre-half in there.

“I still think he needs another striker to go with Aguero, and I still think he needs another attacking midfield player who can go past people, to go with [David] Silva and [Kevin] De Bruyne.”
