  • Don McGahn – caught in the crossfire of a constitutional battle

      The battle between Congress demanding oversight of the president’s actions and a stonewalling Trump has moved up a notch. The non-appearance of Don McGahn, former White House counsel, called to testify under subpoena about the Mueller investigation, had been directed by Trump.  House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler has promised to take legal action. McGahn had told Mueller investigators in the inquiry into Russian election meddling that he had felt pressured by the president to fire Mr Mueller. “Our subpoenas are not optional,” Mr Nadler said during his opening remarks on Tuesday. “This committee will hear Mr McGahn’s testimony even if we have to go to court.” He could be held in contempt for defying the subpoena from Congress. “We …Keep reading »

    1 Comment
      Austrian F1 racing driver Lauda, who won the championship in 1975, 1977 and 1984, has died aged 70. A horrific crash in the German Grand Prix in 1976 almost killed him not just from skin burns but from inhalation of toxic fumes from the burning fibreglass, but he returned to racing a few weeks later to much astonishment and praise for his courage. He was born 22 February 1949 may 11.02 am (unverified) in Vienna, Austria into a wealthy family who disapproved of his ambition to race. He lacked the charisma of other top class drivers and said he was more of a technical guy, keen on precision, rather than a showman. He had a Sun Mars in Pisces …Keep reading »

    No Comments
      Comedian Volodymyr Zelensky who won 70% of the vote in the recent Ukraine presidential election, despite having no previous experience, has been sworn in. He campaigned strongly against official corruption and said ending the conflict with Russian-backed rebels in the east since Moscow annexed Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula in 2014 would be his top priority. Russian state TV said no Russian official had been invited to the inauguration. Zelensky said Ukrainians must “become Swiss in our ability to live happily with each other, despite any differences” and for dialogue with Russia to start there must be a return of all Ukrainian prisoners.” He was born 25 January 1978 at 2pm Krivoj Rog, Ukraine and is a charming, maverick Sun Venus …Keep reading »
  • Heinz-Christian Strache – far right tripping up

      A corruption scandal involving Heinz-Christian Strache, Vice Chancellor of Austria, has led to a snap election being called for September. He was videoed along with a colleague from his far-right Freedom Party talking to a woman who claimed to be a wealthy Russian national looking to invest in Austria. She offered to buy a 50% stake in an Austrian newspaper and switch its editorial position to support their party. Strache said he wanted to “build a media landscape like [Victor] Orban”, a reference to Hungary’s authoritarian prime minister. In exchange he could award her public construction contracts. Strache, born 12 June 1969, maybe 5.45am Wien, Austria, has an ego-centric Gemini Sun on the point of a scattered Mutable T …Keep reading »
