US President Trump Predicts Violence If Democrats Win Mid-term Elections

President Trump is predicting violence if the Democrats win November’s mid-term elections.

He told Christian leaders that November’s vote will be a referendum on freedom of speech and religion, and that these are threatened by violent people.

Trump has appealed to conservative Christian groups to turn out in large numbers to vote.

Mid-term elections are widely seen as a test of the President’s popularity, but 90 percent of the time, the party of a first-term president usually loses seats in the house and senate.  This year would be especially interesting given trump’s antics during his almost two years as President.

Trump has been battling negative publicity after his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty to bank fraud and violation of campaign finance laws, and former campaign chief, Paul Manafort was convicted earlier this month on eight counts ranging from fraud to money laundering, and failure to disclose foreign assets.

President Donald Trump himself is not up for re-election, but his ability to push through his agenda in the final two years of his term will hinge upon the November outcome.

Theresa May Survives Confidence Vote

British Prime Minister Theresa May can rest easy after winning a vote of confidence on Wednesday night in the conservative party by 200 to 117.

After alighting from the vote last night unscathed, she is now immune from a leadership challenge for a year.

But rocky road still lies ahead as she tries to push through a vote in parliament to adopt her Brexit deal with the EU.

After the all important confidence vote on wednesday night, May was in Brussels again thursday morning to finetune the divorce deal she had struck for Britain.

May vowed, after vote results were announced on Wednesday night, that she will deliver the brexit “people voted for.”

She acknowledged the rather high number of her MPs who had voted against her. She promised to listen to, and address, their concerns.

The vote was triggered by 48 of her MPs who are angry at her Brexit policy. They say the deal betrays the demands of the 2016 referendum result.

IATA Forecasts Airlines Will Generate $3b More In 2019

The International Air Transport Association (IATA), which represents most global carriers, has forecast airlines will generate $3 billion more in total profits in 2019. The industry realized $32 billion this year. IATA says although airlines face increased taxes, they will carry more passengers next year that would boost industry profits.

Iata says airlines in North America are performing the best, but Africa remains the weakest region for aviation.

Net profits for airlines across Africa are expected to fall, for the fourth consecutive year next year by three-tenths of a percent.

Losses for carriers across Africa have widened as fuel costs have increased.

UN Urges Immediate Action On Climate Change

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on Wednesday at the ongoing 24th Conference of Parties (COP24) in Poland that it will “not only be immoral, but suicidal”, should the world body fail to agree on climate change action.

He challenged the more than 100 government leaders gathered in Katowice to find consensus and “finish the job”, noting the roadblocks continuing at the (COP24) climate change conference over how to implement the historic 2015 Paris Agreement.

Since Dec. 2, the conference has brought together thousands of climate action decision-makers, advocates and activists, with one key objective – to adopt global guidelines for the 197 parties of the 2015 Paris Agreement.

The 197 parties of the 2015 Paris Agreement committed to limiting global warming to less than 2 degrees Centigrade – and as close as possible to 1.5 degrees Centigrade – above pre-industrial levels.

As the conference nears its end, the UN chief acknowledged progress in the negotiations but said a lot still remains to be done.
