{UAH} Does NRM get it - OWC is doomed?

I brought that Germany Professor of agriculture to Uganda.

Now, all over Uganda, there are Ugandan Asians, even Chinese and
Europeans who need money and they want business.

If today Emelia Kyambadde and her Trade ministry, went to Germany and
asked only to meet with Germany Farmers /or agricultural researchers,
who want to get involved in Uganda farming she we will comeback with a
plane full of them.

I know this as a fact.

Fund them and make sure that they first setup modern produce stores on
a county level, fund them then to buy off; Produce, Transport it,
Process it, Market it, Distribute it, from Uganda ramshackle
villages.

Indians can export anything anywhere in the world with ease unlike
native Ugandans.

This is a very simple fact small eared NRMs have to grasp.

That implies there will be sustained income on a seasonal basis. And
indeed if Uganda farmers are guaranteed a sustainable income many
Ugandans will certainly go where the money is.

Without this production-demand-supply chain agriculture as well
operation wealth creation is doomed.

{UAH} DON'T WAIT ON CNN FOR THIS BREAKING NEWS

Federal judge blocks California law to force disclosure of Trump’s tax returns

John Myers

Sep. 19, 2019

1:32 PM

A federal judge ordered a temporary injunction Thursday against California’s first-in-the-nation law requiring candidates to disclose their tax returns for a spot on the presidential primary ballot, an early victory for President Trump but a decision that will undoubtedly be appealed by state officials.

U.S. District Judge Morrison England Jr. said he would issue a final ruling in the coming days but took the unusual step of issuing the tentative order from the bench. He said there would be “irreparable harm without temporary relief” for Trump and other candidates from the law signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom in July.

Morrison spent much of the court proceeding on the question of whether a longstanding federal financial disclosure law preempts any additional rules that a state could impose.

The federal law, known as the Ethics In Government Act, or EIGA, was originally passed in 1978 and applies to a range of top federal officials. Trump has filed the annual report, most recently in May, which provides an overview of his finances.

“Do we even need to get here if EIGA preempts [the new California law]?,” England asked attorneys for the state. “Is that it?”

The hearing in a Sacramento courtroom consolidated arguments made in five separate lawsuits filed since enactment of the law.

Roque de la Fuente, who filed one of the lawsuits and was a minor party presidential candidate in 2016 after failing to win support in the Democratic Party, said he supports some limited, voluntary tax return disclosure.

“I don’t think it should be mandated by the state,” De la Fuente told reporters outside the courtroom.

Trump sued in August to block implementation of Senate Bill 27. His attorneys told the judge the California law would unfairly force the president to give up his right of privacy to keep his tax returns confidential in order to participate in the March 2 statewide primary.

California Deputy Atty. Gen. Peter Chang told the court that states already have different primary election rules, and that SB 27 not only affects the chief executive of the nation, but also of California.

“This is what the voters need to elect their executives,” Chang said.

But Thomas McCarthy, an attorney representing the president, told the judge the U.S. Constitution sets out rules for running for the nation’s highest office that are “fixed and unalterable” by individual states. He said California voters may have an interest in a presidential candidate’s tax returns, but the state “cannot try to inform” voters beyond the basic information.

England seemed to suggest there could be reasons to rein in electoral rules that left presidential candidates scrambling to provide different information based on the state in question.

“Wouldn’t that create a hodgepodge of laws around the country?” he asked.

The California law requires any candidate for president or governor who seeks a spot on the statewide primary ballot to give state officials copies of Internal Revenue Service tax forms from the last five years of filings. After personal financial information is redacted, copies of those documents would be made available for public inspection.

The law does not apply to any other candidate seeking office, including those vying for seats in the California Legislature or Congress, and it would have no effect on the November general election. In practical terms, should Trump be kept off the primary ballot, he would still have the opportunity to receive votes for president in the fall as the Republican Party nominee.

Because SB 27 was passed as an urgency statute by the Legislature, it is set to take effect for next year’s presidential primary. The law states that presidential hopefuls from any of the six political parties recognized by the state must submit the tax documents no later than 98 days before the primary election, which is Nov. 26. Though some Democratic presidential candidates have made portions of their tax returns public, the five-year standard under SB 27 would require additional disclosure for many of those who hope to have their name on the California ballot.

Thursday’s face-off in federal court capped a tumultuous week for the relationship between Trump and California. The president’s two-day visit to the state focused on private campaign fundraisers but included a trip to the U.S.-Mexico border and a threat to sanction San Francisco over what he called “tremendous pollution” brought on from the city’s homelessness problems.

Trump is only the second president since 1976 to have refused all requests for public review of his tax returns. While the practice became routine in most elections, it has also been voluntary. The new law also applies to candidates for governor, elections in which tax disclosure has been far less consistent. Newsom, however, allowed reporters to inspect five years of his tax returns in 2017.

California’s new election law is just one fight being waged by the president to keep his tax returns out of the public eye. On Thursday, his attorneys also sued to stop a New York state law that would give House Democrats access to Trump’s state tax returns.

But only the California battle has direct consequences for the 2020 presidential campaign. In a court filing last week, Trump’s attorneys said the state law goes far beyond the “procedural” election requirements that states can impose. They also insisted the law treats candidates differently, in that it applies only to those who belong to one of the six political parties that have qualified under California law for official recognition.

Those parties are the only ones that will participate in the primary because the election is designed to allow the selection of a national party nominee. Any candidate wishing to mount an independent or write-in presidential campaigns wouldn’t appear on the ballot until November.

Attorneys representing Newsom and Secretary of State Alex Padilla told the judge the state law doesn’t create an insurmountable hurdle to keep a candidate off California’s ballot, arguing that the only reason a candidate can’t meet the standard is because he or she simply doesn’t want to.

Beyond the five lawsuits considered Thursday, there are three other legal challenges to the California election law. Two additional lawsuits have been filed in Los Angeles and San Diego, respectively. A third challenge was filed by the California Republican Party in the state Supreme Court, asserting the new statute conflicts with existing election law.

But the effort by Trump is the most high-profile of the group.

Beyond the specter of a sitting president being left off the primary ballot in the most populous state, Republicans have said there would be significant harm to the party if the new law is allowed to take effect.

They believe without Trump on the ballot, GOP voters would have less incentive to participate in the March primary and party candidates could come up short in down-ticket races. Under California’s unique primary election rules, only the top two vote-getters in legislative and congressional races will move on to the November general election — even if they are from the same party. Democrats, GOP officials have argued, could easily take both of those spots in key races if Republican enthusiasm is diminished by a primary in which Trump must sit on the sidelines.

Trump received almost 1.7 million votes in the June 2016 statewide presidential primary, far outpacing his GOP rivals.

While supporters of the California law have said mandatory tax document disclosure is long overdue, few believe it would have gained traction without the election of Trump.

De La Fuente, who said he intends to run as a Republican in the upcoming presidential election, said the president made a mistake in dodging the issue in 2016.

“I thought he made a mistake by not disclosing, but I would assume that he’s got something to hide,” he said.

{UAH} Gen. Kayihura Sanctioned--Let's make Museveni Next

 
Add your name to this Petition.


Compatriots as you know, the U.S. has banned Gen. Kale Kayihura who arrogantly, brutally and mercilessly carried out Gen. Yoweri Museveni's orders to commit mass murder and assassinations. 

Let's keep the pressure for the U.S. to 1) place an arms embargo on dictator Museveni's corrupt and illegitimate regime formed after multiple stolen elections and 2) sanctioned Gen. Museveni himself for war crimes and crimes against humanity. 

The dictator was hoping an oil bonanza would bail out his corrupt regime. But even oil company executives--although many have a high threshold of tolerance to corruption and bribes--know that shareholders monitor the news. The dictator knows he's the bottleneck to Uganda bringing its oil to market. With the Kayihura sanctions his senior government officials are now wary of foreign travel and his commanders who abuse human rights know they could face justice.

Share this petition with other people you know so we can keep building momentum. 

Remember how arrogant Gen. Kayihura was? Where is he now? Gen. Omar Hassan al-Bashir: where is he now? In the 21st century we must ensure that human rights abusers in Africa face Justice so the youth can create a New Africa.

Below is the U.S. statement on Kayihura:

PRESS RELEASES
Treasury Sanctions Former Ugandan Inspector General of Police for Role in Serious Human Rights Abuse and Corruption
September 13, 2019
Treasury Global Magnitsky designation in coordination with State visa ban

Washington – Today, the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) sanctioned the former Inspector General of Police (IGP) of the Ugandan Police Force (UPF), Kale Kayihura (Kayihura), pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13818, for having been a leader or official of an entity that has engaged in or whose members have engaged in serious human rights abuse against Ugandan citizens, as well as for his involvement in corruption. This action complements the Department of State's concurrent implementation of a visa ban for Kayihura under section 7031(c) of the Fiscal Year 2019 Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations

PRESS RELEASES
Treasury Sanctions Former Ugandan Inspector General of Police for Role in Serious Human Rights Abuse and Corruption
September 13, 2019
Treasury Global Magnitsky designation in coordination with State visa ban

Washington – Today, the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) sanctioned the former Inspector General of Police (IGP) of the Ugandan Police Force (UPF), Kale Kayihura (Kayihura), pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13818, for having been a leader or official of an entity that has engaged in or whose members have engaged in serious human rights abuse against Ugandan citizens, as well as for his involvement in corruption. This action complements the Department of State's concurrent implementation of a visa ban for Kayihura under section 7031(c) of the Fiscal Year 2019 Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act (P .L. 116-6) due to Kayihura's involvement in gross violations of human rights.

"We are targeting Uganda's former Police Inspector General Kale Kayihura for using corruption and bribery to strengthen his political position, as units under his command committed serious human rights abuses," said Sigal Mandelker, Treasury Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence. "The U.S. government is committed to leveraging our human rights and corruption authorities to target, disrupt, and counter those who engage in abuse and corruption around the world."
As a result of today's action, all property and interests in property of Kayihura, and of any entities that are owned, directly or indirectly, 50 percent or more by him alone or with other designated persons, that are in the United States or in the possession or control of U.S. persons, are blocked and must be reported to OFAC. OFAC's regulations generally prohibit all transactions by U.S. persons or within (or transiting) the United States that involve any property or interests in property of designated or otherwise blocked persons.

KALE KAYIHURA
Kayihura is being designated for being the leader of an entity that has engaged in or whose members have engaged in serious human rights abuse and being a current or former government official who is responsible for or complicit in, or has directly or indirectly engaged in, corruption.

As the IGP for the UPF, Kayihura led individuals from the UPF's Flying Squad Unit, which has engaged in the inhumane treatment of detainees at the Nalufenya Special Investigations Center (NSIC). Flying Squad Unit members reportedly used sticks and rifle butts to abuse NSIC detainees, and officers at NSIC are accused of having beaten one of the detainees with blunt instruments to the point that he lost consciousness. Detainees also reported that after being subjected to the abuse they were offered significant sums of money if they confessed to their involvement in a crime.
In addition, Kayihura has engaged in numerous acts of corruption, including using bribery to strengthen his political position within the Government of Uganda, stealing funds intended for official Ugandan government business, and using another government employee to smuggle illicit goods, including drugs, gold, and wildlife, out of Uganda.

GLOBAL MAGNITSKY
Building upon the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act of 2016, on December 20, 2017, the President signed E.O. 13818, in which the President found that the prevalence of human rights abuse and corruption which have their source, in whole or in part, outside the United States, had reached such scope and gravity that they threaten the stability of international political and economic systems. Human rights abuse and corruption undermine the values that form an essential foundation of stable, secure, and functioning societies; have devastating impacts on individuals; weaken democratic institutions; degrade the rule of law; perpetuate violent conflicts; facilitate the activities of dangerous persons; and undermine economic markets. The United States seeks to impose tangible and significant consequences on those who commit serious human rights abuse or engage in corruption, as well as to protect the financial system of the United States from abuse by these same persons.
To date, OFAC has designated 114 individuals and entities under E.O. 13818. This figure is in addition to the numerous human rights or corruption related designations Treasury has issued under various other authorities. In total, since January of 2017, Treasury has taken action against more than 680 individuals and entities engaged in activities with links to human rights abuse and/or corruption.

Information on the individuals and entities designated today.

SECTION 703L(C) OF THE FY 2019 DEPARTMENT OF STATE, FOREIGN OPERATIONS, AND RELATED PROGRAMS APPROPRIATION777
Section 7031 ( c) provides that, in cases where the Secretary of State has credible information that foreign officials have been involved in significant corruption or a gross violation of human rights, those individuals and their immediate family members are ineligible for entry into the United States. More information on the 703 l(c) designation.
