LOL: Delusional Mike Pence Gives Another Hint that He Might Run for President



5ff3806ef343bmike pence

Mike Pence might be the exemplification of the “Conservative, Inc” side of the Republican Party. While he’s reasonably conservative on most issues, his main problem is that he’s not a fighter and nowhere near as populist as the MAGA movement would like.

He might generally have the right policy ideas, but hasn’t given a shred of evidence that he’d go out on a limb to fight for them, as we saw with his refusal to reject the election results and side with Trump on January 6th. He might have been right that it wouldn’t work, but, then again, doing nothing would obviously fail, so why not try? Because he’s weak-kneed and weak-spined.

In any case, Mr. Conservative, Inc. thinks he has a chance of winning the 2024 GOP presidential slot and has hinted at it a few times in recent months, most notably when he released his blandly conservative “Freedom Plan,” seemingly hoping that scattering the word “freedom” around everything he does will make people forget that he’s not a fighter.

He also told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo that he would consider participating in the 2024 race, saying:

All my focus right now is on 2022. I think we have a historic opportunity to reclaim majorities in the House and Senate, to elect great Republican governors around America and, in 2023, I’m confident the Republican Party will nominate a candidate who will be the next president of the United States of America and at the right time, my family and I will reflect and consider how we might participate in that process.

And, most recently, during a Young Americans Foundation (YAF) speaking event at the University of Virginia, Pence dropped another hint that he might run in 2024.

That came when a student asked “I was just wondering if you’re planning to run in 2024 for president?” Pence, in response, said “I’ll keep you posted.”

Why Pence thinks he has a chance of winning are unclear. As the New York Post found, a recent poll not only indicates that Trump would win a race against Biden or Harris, but that Trump far and away holds the support of the GOP voters, with the very similar Ron DeSantis coming in second place. Reporting on that, the NYP said:

The 45th president would unseat Biden by a 47% to 41% margin, according to the Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll published by The Hill. However, 12% of voters are undecided.

Harris going up against Trump would produce an even worse result for Democrats — 49% would vote for the former president compared to 38% for the veep.

[…]A plurality of Republican voters (28%) would back DeSantis if Trump decides against running in 2024, while 24% would support former Vice President Mike Pence and 10% would pick Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). No other Republican received double-digit support.

So, if Trump would likely win and is still popular with the GOP, Milquetoast Mike probably doesn’t have a chance. Plus, with DeSantis being so similar to Trump on the policy and personal energy level, it seems like DeSantis would tear apart Pence if Trump chose not to run, especially given how unlikely it is for Trump supporters to move to Pence.

Mike might want to run in 2024. But being blandly conservative isn’t enough anymore; the next GOP candidate needs to be a fighter like Trump or DeSantis, not a pretty conservative “nice guy” like Pence.

Afrique du Sud : Conférence mondiale pour la lutte contre l’augmentation du travail des enfants démarre



ILO1 750x430 1

La 5e Conférence mondiale sur l’élimination du travail des enfants s’ouvre à Durban, en Afrique du Sud. L’Organisation internationale du travail (OIT) affirme que plus de 160 millions d’enfants travaillent.

Ce chiffre indique que près d’un enfant sur dix dans le monde est soumis au travail des enfants.

Dans une déclaration du bureau de l’OIT au Nigeria, on peut lire : “Les chiffres sont en hausse, et la pandémie menace d’inverser des années de progrès. Le travail des enfants a particulièrement augmenté dans la tranche d’âge des 5 à 11 ans”.

La conférence appelle donc à une action urgente “forte” pour combattre le nombre croissant d’enfants utilisés dans le travail des enfants.

Le président sud-africain Cyril Ramaphosa, s’exprimant au début d’une semaine de discussions, a appelé les délégués à s’engager à prendre ce qu’il a appelé des “actions de grande envergure” pour faire une différence dans la vie des enfants.

“Nous sommes ici parce que nous partageons la conviction commune que le travail des enfants sous toutes ses facettes est un ennemi. Le travail des enfants est un ennemi du développement de nos enfants et un ennemi du progrès.

“Aucune civilisation, aucun pays, aucune économie ne peut se considérer comme étant à la pointe du progrès si son succès et ses richesses ont été construits sur le dos des enfants”, a déclaré le Président.

Dans la même veine, le directeur général de l’Organisation internationale du travail, M. Guy Ryder, a déclaré que certaines personnes pensent que le travail des enfants est une conséquence inévitable de la pauvreté et qu’il faut l’accepter.

“Mais c’est une erreur. Nous ne pouvons jamais nous résigner au travail des enfants. Nous n’avons pas à le faire.

“Il est essentiel de s’attaquer aux causes profondes, comme la pauvreté des ménages, mais ne vous y trompez pas, le travail des enfants est une violation d’un droit humain fondamental, et notre objectif doit être que chaque enfant, partout, en soit libéré. Nous ne pouvons pas nous reposer avant que cela ne se produise”, a-t-il précisé.

À l’approche de l’échéance de 2025 fixée par les objectifs de développement durable des Nations unies pour l’élimination du travail des enfants, de nombreux intervenants ont souligné, selon le communiqué, l’urgence de récupérer les progrès réalisés dans de nombreuses régions avant la pandémie de COVID-19.

Le communiqué précise que c’est la première fois que la Conférence mondiale sur l’élimination du travail des enfants se tient en Afrique, “une région où, si l’on se base sur les chiffres, le nombre d’enfants qui travaillent est le plus élevé et où les progrès sont les plus lents”.

L’OIT a révélé qu’environ 70 % du travail des enfants sur le continent se fait dans l’agriculture, souvent dans des contextes où les enfants travaillent aux côtés de leur famille.

La conférence s’appuiera sur les quatre précédentes conférences mondiales, organisées à Buenos Aires (2017), Brasilia (2013), La Haye (2010) et Oslo (1997), qui ont permis de sensibiliser au problème, d’évaluer les progrès, de mobiliser des ressources et d’établir une orientation stratégique pour le mouvement mondial contre le travail des enfants.

Elle devrait se conclure par un Appel à l’action de Durban qui présentera des engagements concrets pour intensifier les actions visant à éliminer le travail des enfants.

Four dead, many injured in Westonaria accident



Four dead many injured in Westonaria accident

Four people were killed and 14 seriously injured in a collision on the N12 near Westonaria, near the R28, on Wednesday night.

Four were pronounced dead at the scene

ER24 spokesman Ineke van Huyssteen said the collision occurred between a taxi and a light vehicle (BMW).

ER24 paramedics arrived at the scene shortly after 19:30 and found multiple patients at the scene.

“Unfortunately, four people were found with fatal injuries and were pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics,”

Van Huesting said.

Two other people were seriously injured and 12 others were slightly injured.

The patients were treated by ER24, GPG and another medical service on site before transporting them to various hospitals for further medical care.

She said their paramedics did not know the exact conditions around them, but local authorities were at the scene conducting further investigations.

Two dead after car crashes into utility pole

Meanwhile, earlier this week, a light motor vehicle struck a light pole on the N12 south of Johannesburg, killing two people and injuring three others.

ER24 and Johannesburg City EMS arrived at 19:00 to find a light motor vehicle hitting a light pole.

“After careful inspection, paramedics found a man and a woman trapped in front of the car.

“Unfortunately, these two patients have already died from multiple injuries. Nothing could be done about them and they were pronounced dead,”

Van Huesting said.

Two other women and a baby were also cared for at the scene.

One woman is in critical condition, while the other woman and baby girl suffered minor injuries.

Medical staff treated the patients and provided advanced life support to the severely injured women before transporting them all to a nearby hospital for further treatment.

What to do after an accident:

  1. park and stay on site
  2. First, stop and, for road safety, turn on the hazard and warn other drivers.
  3. Climb out of the vehicle when it is safe to check for injuries. If you can, take pictures of all vehicle damage in the accident.
  4. help anyone who has been hurt
  5. While you can only be criminally charged for causing an accident and any resulting injury, as a bystander you have a moral obligation to help someone injured in a traffic accident. Help includes contacting an ambulance or rescue unit, even if the injury does not appear to be serious.
  6. It is critical that you do not move the injured party and that you do not give first aid unless you are qualified to do so.
  7. Get details
  8. Record information about everyone involved in road accidents, including personal details, vehicle registration numbers, trailer information and insurance details.
  9. Take note of all road names, landmarks, intersections and robots as you have to draw sketches and accident descriptions in police reports and for insurance purposes.
  10. report an accident
  11. Notify the police within 24 hours of the accident. If the police come to the scene, don’t move anything until they say it’s okay.
  12. Make sure you get an Accident Report (AR) number as it will be required for any insurance claim or third party claim you may make.
