{UAH} Ugandans rise up like monkeys in the story hereunder.

In the feudal state of Chu an old man survived by keeping monkeys in his service. Each morning, the old man would assemble the monkeys in his courtyard, and order the eldest one to lead the others to the mountains to gather fruits from bushes and trees. It was the rule that each monkey had to give one tenth of his collection to the old man. Those who failed to do so would be ruthlessly flogged. All the monkeys suffered bitterly, but dared not complain.

One day, a small monkey asked the other monkeys:
'Did the old man plant all the fruit trees and bushes?' The others said: 'No, they grew naturally'.
The small monkey further asked: 'Can't we take the fruits without the old man's permission?" The others replied: 'Yes we all can'. The small monkey continued: 'Then, why should we depend on the old man; why must we all serve him?'. 

Before the small monkey was able to finish his statement, all monkeys suddenly became enlightened and awakened.
On the same night, watching that the old man had fallen asleep, the monkeys tore down all the barricades of the stockade in which they were confined, and destroyed the stockade entirely. They also took the fruits the old man had in storage, brought all with them to the woods, and never returned. The old man finally died of starvation.

Some men in the world rule their people by tricks not principles. Aren't they just like monkeys master? They aren't aware of their muddleheadedness. As soon as their people become enlightened, their tricks no longer work.

Excerpt from the book 'From dictatorship to democracy' by Gene Sharp.

{UAH} This sad, embarrassing wreck of a man

This sad, embarrassing wreck of a man

President Donald Trump waits for members of the media get set up before speaking in the Cabinet room of the White House, Tuesday, July 17, 2018, in Washington. Trump says he meant the opposite when he said in Helsinki that he doesn't see why Russia would have interfered in the 2016 U.S. elections..

Editor's note: The opinions in this article are the author's, as published by our content partner, and do not necessarily represent the views of MSN or Microsoft.

America's child president had a play date with a KGB alumnus, who surely enjoyed providing daycare. It was a useful, illuminating, event: Now we shall see how many Republicans retain a capacity for embarrassment.

Jeane Kirkpatrick, a Democrat closely associated with such Democratic national security stalwarts as former senator Henry Jackson and former senator and former vice president Hubert Humphrey, was President Ronald Reagan's ambassador to the United Nations. In her speech at the 1984 Republican National Convention in Dallas, she explained her disaffection from her party: "They always blame America first." In Helsinki, the president who bandies the phrase "America First" put himself first, as always, and America last, behind President Vladimir Putin's regime.

Because the Democrats had just held their convention in San Francisco, Kirkpatrick branded the "blame America first" cohort as "San Francisco Democrats." Thirty-four years on, how numerous are the "Helsinki Republicans"?

What, precisely, did President Trump say about the diametrically opposed statements by U.S. intelligence agencies (and the Senate Intelligence Committee) and by Putin concerning Russia and the 2016 U.S. elections? Precision is not part of Trump's repertoire: He speaks English as though it is a second language that he learned from someone who learned English last week. So, it is usually difficult to sift meanings from Trump's word salads. But in Helsinki he was, for him, crystal clear about feeling no allegiance to the intelligence institutions that work at his direction and under leaders he chose.

Speaking of Republicans incapable of blushing — those with the peculiar strength that comes from being incapable of embarrassment — consider Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (S.C.), who for years enjoyed derivative gravitas from his association with Sen. John McCain (Ariz.). Graham tweeted about Helsinki: "Missed opportunity by President Trump to firmly hold Russia accountable for 2016 meddling and deliver a strong warning regarding future elections." A "missed opportunity" by a man who had not acknowledged the meddling?

Contrast Graham's mush with this on Monday from McCain, still vinegary: "Today's press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory." Or this from Arizona's other senator, Jeff Flake (R): "I never thought I would see the day when our American president would stand on the stage with the Russian President and place blame on the United States for Russian aggression." Blame America only.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly, Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats and others might believe that they must stay in their positions lest there be no adult supervision of the Oval playpen. This is a serious worry, but so is this: Can those people do their jobs for someone who has neither respect nor loyalty for them?

Like the purloined letter in Edgar Allan Poe's short story with that title, collusion with Russia is hiding in plain sight. We shall learn from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation whether in 2016 there was collusion with Russia by members of the Trump campaign. The world, however, saw in Helsinki something more grave — ongoing collusion between Trump, now in power, and Russia. The collusion is in what Trump says (refusing to back the United States' intelligence agencies) and in what evidently went unsaid (such as: You ought to stop disrupting Ukraine, downing civilian airliners, attempting to assassinate people abroad using poisons, and so on, and on).

Americans elected a president who — this is a safe surmise — knew that he had more to fear from making his tax returns public than from keeping them secret. The most innocent inference is that for decades he has depended on an American weakness, susceptibility to the tacky charisma of wealth, which would evaporate when his tax returns revealed that he has always lied about his wealth, too. A more ominous explanation might be that his redundantly demonstrated incompetence as a businessman tumbled him into unsavory financial dependencies on Russians. A still more sinister explanation might be that the Russians have something else, something worse, to keep him compliant.

The explanation is in doubt; what needs to be explained — his compliance — is not. Granted, Trump has a weak man's banal fascination with strong men whose disdain for him is evidently unimaginable to him. And, yes, he only perfunctorily pretends to have priorities beyond personal aggrandizement. But just as astronomers inferred, from anomalies in the orbits of the planet Uranus, the existence of Neptune before actually seeing it, Mueller might infer, and then find, still-hidden sources of the behavior of this sad, embarrassing wreck of a man.

{UAH} President Ramaphosa seen flying on the cheap - again

President Ramaphosa seen flying on the cheap - again

POST A COMMENT0

The president is once again showing off his mastery of political optics as he has been sighted on low-cost air carrier Flysafair this morning. The president flew on the 07:10 flight from Johannesburg to East London this morning on flight FA248.  

Flying, low-cost with the ordinary people of South Africa certainly would seem to be sending a very symbolic message that the era of state-sponsored luxury while millions of people struggle to eak out a meagre existence is coming to an end. 

This is not the first time that the president has been seen using low-cost carriers to get around the country. 

WATCH: Everybody wants to sit next to President Ramaphosa on a plane

PICS: FlySafair dons new livery to reflect Best in Africa status

At the end of April, President Cyril Ramaphosa was spotted travelling to Durban in economy class on a Flysafair flight. The president presented himself then as an approachable, relatable figure and humoured his fellow passengers who took selfies and photos which, of course, eventually made their way to social media. 

At that time, Ramaphosa's spokesperson Khusela Diko told News24 that the president will at all times use the mode of transport which is most practical, convenient and cost effective for his duties. 

The low-cost travel comes at a time when news broke that taxpayers are shelling out a fortune for the air travel of the president and his deputy. Rapport reported that the return flight between Cape Town and Johannesburg cost the airforce an astounding R1.5 million due, in no small way, to the use of a commercial airliner that could have transported 316 passengers, but was used to transport the presidential entourage estimated to be between 20 to 30 people. 

Rapport claimed to have seen invoices from SAA that show that the use of SAA aircraft has cost the airforce R50 million in four months. That being said, the president has indicated that he would only fly SAA or on an air force plane where leasing becomes necessary - specifically when there are no commercial flights for Ramaphosa to take.

Ramaphosa's spokesperson, Khusela Diko has said President Ramaphosa tries to use the least expensive available air travel as a matter of principle. Where commercial flights are not available on a specific route, it is the responsibility of the air force to find an alternative.

Trump says he's been tougher on Russia than any other president

 - The Washington Times - Wednesday, July 18, 2018 

President Trump insisted Wednesday that he has been tougher on Russia than his predecessors, outlining sanctions and other ways he's punished Moscow as the White House tried to quell the furor in Washington over the administration's response to Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Facing more criticism for failing to confront Russian President Vladimir Putin publicly at their summit this week, Mr. Trump noted that his approach to Moscow has included the expulsion of 60 Russian diplomats from the U.S. last year, economic sanctions, and even a cruise-missile attack against Russia's longtime ally Syria after it used chemical weapons on civilians in Apr
