HAPPENING NOW: Malaysian PM Dr Mahathir Mohamad speaks at the #UNGA, 15 years after his last address.
“The new Government of Malaysia, recently empowered with a strong mandate from its people, is committed to ensure that every Malaysian has an equitable share in the prosperity and wealth of the nation.” - Dr Mahathir at #UNGA
“A new Malaysia emerged after the 14th General Election in May this year. Malaysians decided to change their government...We did this because the immediate past Government indulged in the politics of hatred, of racial and religious bigotry, as well as widespread corruption.”#UNGA

At the UN Trusteeship Chamber, where @PressFreedom's Joel Simon is introducing an #UNGA side event involving Amal Clooney.

It begins with a short video about the jailing of two Reuters journalists: Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, who discovered and investigated a Rohingya massacre.
Before the video rolled, Simon said of incarcerating journalists: "There has been one issue around which it has been difficult to engage with the UN," because, he said: "The UN has a culture of rarely calling out its members."
Reuters president and editor-in-chief Stephen Adler takes the podium: He notes that the UN has called the treatment of the Rohingya "ethnic cleansing."

#Russia's state TV:
Former Putin adviser Sergei Markov says that Putin chose not to attend the #UNGA as a favor to Trump, to avoid outshining him.
Markov says, Putin's presence "would eclipse everyone else, Putin would be the person Number One." ©️

Even the host seems to be bowled over by the gall of that statement.

You thought the world was laughing at him yesterday - they are in absolute stitches at today's epic embarrassment.

Trump addresses a Kurdish reporter as "Mr. Kurd" #25thAmendmentNow
Trump says he rejected a one-on-one meeting with Justin Trudeau at the #UNGA, threatens tariffs on Canada auto exports: "We're going to tax the cars coming in, and we'll put billions and billions into our treasury .. Canada has treated us very badly"
Aside from his economic illiteracy (Americans pay the tariff, not foreign exporters), his personal animus towards Trudeau and Canada – neighbors, close allies, brothers and sisters – is senseless and destructive.

Dimms and their PR arm, the media, are handing Trump an unlimited amount of time to talk about #ConfirmKavanaugh and all the associated political issues, going back decades.

That's why I call them the Dimms.

#TrumpPressConference. Democrat #ConJob #ConArtists
Jim Acosta LOL
IMO the main reason Trump scheduled this press conference was to use it as his opportunity to speak about Kavanaugh and the whole situation. He is so smart. They are so dumb.

Watching this, I could cry tears of joy. What a blessing this President is to America. #MAGA

Who was clapping while everyone else was laughing at @realDonaldTrump ? Will tell you in 5 - tune into @OutFrontCNN with @KateBolduan and @DanaBashCNN
Putin was clapping while everyone else was laughing! Someone should have googled "sovereignty" before making it the focus of the speech but leaving out a section on Russia violating our sovereignty, Ukraine's, and more. And unpacked the #UNGA acronym too ,
Aside from the superlative contest at the beginning of his remarks, other parts of the speech will impact our ability to project power -- hard and soft - abroad. Retrenchment in foreign assistance (we're only paying our friends these days) and defense spending?

1- “I want to stress the path we have chosen and the horizon ahead of us as we strive to reach the Iranian people's grand destination.”

3-“We stress human rights in accordance w/ the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, & in accordance w/ conventions adopted by the United Nations. The mullahs' sharia edicts, which make up the legal precedent of the regime's punitive laws, will have no place in tomorrow's Iran.”

Let's take a short look at #Iran's regime president Hassan Rouhani resorting to hypocrisy at the UN General Assembly.

"We are victims of terrorism!"

(Referring to the #AhvazAttack - Any questions about that being a false flag operation? Or just a coincidence prior to the #UNGA?)
"People in Yemen are under pressure from terrorists' violence!"…

Prior to Trump's speech at the #UNGA, White House officials told the press that his speech would focus on US national security interests. He did not disappoint, with his speech delivering threat after threat to nations across the globe. Video here:…
The most immediate threat delivered by Trump was addressed to Iran. After ludicrously arguing that Iran is responsible for funding all terrorism across the globe, including in Syria (where it has been fighting US-backed terrorists), Trump stated his intent for further aggression.
In the naked tongue of imperialist barbarism, Trump stated that he will continue US sanctions and that "more will follow" those due in November. The objective of US policy toward Iran nothing less than the complete destruction of its sovereignty. #HandsOffIran

Our elders would say “E jighị nnukwu amụ amaja akwụna (You don't scare a prostitute with the penile size)” but this is ridiculous. Are you a Financial Institution now? Even if there is a vault in those designer bags, why the untrammeled access to such by the ADC? 🤔
Again, looking deeper, this may not be a direct theft from a repository or stash but through false pretenses. ADCs even people working in corridors of power use their position to dupe people (opportunistic politicians mostly) in the name of the VIPs they are working for. So sad.
But let me ask what culture the ADC met on ground before deciding to participate in his low estate? Are there people lobbying within that conundrum in similar fashion as ratified? U don’t flaunt plugs without sockets in view. Is this the first ADC on this job? How many thus far?

Volvo ends business in #Iran

Considering that the regime & IRGC control vast portions of the economy, the more foreign companies leave Iran, the weaker the regime becomes.

Finland's Qutotec, involved in mining technology, plans to pull out of #Iran.

This is starting to become a great week, especially with #UNGA set to place the spotlight on Tehran's mullahs.
Bpifrance, a state-owned bank in France, is abandoning plans to launch a mechanism aimed at aid French companies trading with #Iran's regime.
