Dive In

That social channel you are talking about, if it is going to operate in Uganda, it should be used equitably by everybody who has to use it… We cannot tolerate this arrogance of anybody coming to decide for us who is good and who is bad.

That’s Uganda president Yoweri Museveni who has blocked Facebook from operating in his country ahead of a bitterly fought election. But before you start to cheer his anti-Zuck chutzpah, know this: Museveni made the move days after FB removed fake pages linked to his government. Also: It is a ploy to muzzle the opposition to his increasingly dictatorial government. In this crazy world, the bad guy changes from one geographic location to another.

The TLDR: Trump has become the only US president to be impeached twice in the nation’s 332-year history. And he may become the first president to be convicted, as well. But only if a decisive number of Republicans break ranks in the Senate. We explain what happened, why and what is likely to happen next.
