US ‘Strongly Condemns’ Violence in Eastern DR Congo


Washington — The United States on Saturday deplored growing violence by the Democratic Republic Congo’s M23 rebels, saying the group’s backers in Rwanda must remove sophisticated ground-to-air missiles that are threatening lives in the country’s east.

Fighting has flared in recent days around the town of Sake, 20 kilometers from Goma, between M23 rebels and Congolese government forces.

“The United States strongly condemns the worsening violence in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) caused by the actions of the Rwanda-backed, U.S.- and U.N.-sanctioned M23 armed group, including its recent incursions into the town of Sake,” State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller said in a statement.

“This escalation has increased the risk to millions of people … We call on M23 to immediately cease hostilities and withdraw from its current positions around Sake and Goma,” Miller said.

Washington “condemns” Rwandan support for M23 and calls on Kigali “to immediately withdraw all Rwanda Defense Force personnel from the DRC and remove its surface-to-air missile systems, which threaten the lives of civilians, U.N. and other regional peacekeepers, humanitarian actors, and commercial flights in eastern DRC,” Miller said.

Dozens of soldiers and civilians have reportedly been killed or wounded in the fighting over the last 10 days.

The latest clashes have pushed tens of thousands of civilians to flee towards Goma, which stands between Lake Kivu and the Rwandan border and is practically cut off from the country’s interior.

The DRC, the United Nations and Western countries say Rwanda is supporting the rebels in a bid to control vast mineral resources, an allegation Kigali denies.

U.N. forces have been in the DRC for nearly 25 years but stand accused of failing to protect civilians from armed groups.

Donald Trump doesn’t give speeches. He doesn’t even give bad speeches. Instead he stands in front of a crowd and says incoherent senile things for awhile, and then his people steer him away. None of it ever comes close to constituting a speech.

It happened again on Saturday, when an increasingly addled Trump seemed unable to count to two at one point, even as he kept inexplicably referring to President Joe Biden as “Bigrant.” Trump also decided that the Republican primary election in Michigan is taking place on November 27th:


Trump: Michigan, get out and vote on November 27th

So yeah, Donald Trump’s brain is now apple sauce, and that’s being unkind to apple sauce. As overwhelmingly cognitively impaired as this guy was when the week began, his nine figure civil fraud verdict seems to have shattered what little cognitive ability he had left.

London Fashion Week Celebrates Multiculturalism, Urban Life


LONDON — The cultural richness brought by migrations across the world, familial nostalgia and the frenetic pace of London life marked the second day of the city’s Fashion Week on Saturday as up-and-coming designers showed off their styles for the season ahead.

Some 60 designers, ranging from rising talents to renowned brands like Burberry, are exhibiting their new designs over five days, hoping to draw the interest of buyers and fashion influencers.

The 40th anniversary edition of the event is also introducing greater diversity and inclusivity in terms of body shapes, ages, and skin colors of the models, as well as in the designers’ collections.

Multiculturalism in spotlight

Sierra Leone-born designer Foday Dumbuya’s Labrum London brand closed the day with its “Journey Through Color” collection, celebrating the diversity of cultures brought by immigrants.

The winner of the 2023 Elizabeth II Award for British Design focused on texture plays, newspaper patterns or monogram patterns on more classic cuts.

There were as many tones of color — from royal blue to black, orange, brown, yellow and green — as there were “inspiring stories” from immigrants.

Some models wore suitcases as headgear, a reference to people fleeing conflict taking their belongings with them.

“People move for different reasons, and when they move, they move their culture with them. And we wanted to celebrate that tonight,” Dumbuya told AFP.

One of the models carried on his back a large frame with dozens of flags of “countries that have been involved in key migration throughout history,” including the Palestinian flag.

It was a political message and a call for tolerance, argued the creator.

“It’s just to showcase you got to support each other. Where we are does not matter. People’s life is what is important,” Dumbuya said. “Wherever you are … Palestinian, Jewish, whatever it is, that world belong to us. It’s just saying don’t just demonize these people.”

Old photographs

In her show, Dublin-born menswear designer Robyn Lynch drew inspiration from her sister’s career as a Gaelic dancer, using old photographs of high kicks, spangled costumes and passionate spectators for inspiration.

“I vividly remember spending all these weekends in sports halls at competitions seeing all the glitz and drama that happened on and off stage,” said the designer, who used Celtic knots and monograms in her designs.

Lynch’s designs featured diamante encrusted jorts (jean shorts), a long line of hoodies with elastic toggle belts and laser-etched jeans with a color palette of hickory brown, screen blue, matte black and oat milk white.

Life in the metropolis

Earlier, models paraded in London’s famous red double-decker buses in outfits inspired by traditional dance.

British designer Ricky Wesley Harriott kicked off his brand SRVC’s show with a collection named “Human Resource,” inspired by modern “professional women’s outfits.”

The designer had his models, all perched on vertiginous heels, parade on the iconic red double-decker buses of London to “celebrate life in the metropolis.”

The show featured rigid and structured jackets with pronounced shoulders, in dark colors with flashy accessories, from XXL silver hoop earrings to rings covering every finger.

Fairy tales

Designer Priya Ahluwalia, who draws inspiration from her Indian-Nigerian heritage, was cheered after her show, which featured male and female models in earthy reds, oranges and blues parading to thumping house music.

The designer used the Indian and West African fairy tales that she grew up with — like The Prince Who Wanted the Moon, The Magic Fiddle and How the Leopard Got His Spots — in her designs for the season, she told British Vogue.

“I was thinking about how stories have affected my life — why do we like the stories we like, and how do they get passed on,” she said.

Ahluwalia said the corset-like detailing in the knitwear of her designs was inspired by Netflix’s Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story, which she watched while conducting research for her collection.

The designer, who launched her brand Ahluwalia in 2018, works with limited quantities of fabrics, often upcycling and using patchwork techniques to limit waste.

LFW comes at a tumultuous time for Britain’s fashion industry, amid post-Brexit trade barriers and the country’s cost-of-living crisis.

The difficult economic situation has even prompted some nascent designers to question the viability of investing in British fashion events.

Rising star Dilara Findikoglu made headlines last September after she cancelled her show days before the event for financial reasons.

The industry, which employs close to 900,000 people in the UK and contributes $26 billion to the British economy, is facing “incredibly challenging times,” LFW’s director Caroline Rush told AFP.

Looks like Donald Trump is about to owe a lot more money to E. Jean Carroll

After a trial jury ordered Donald Trump to pay $83.3 million in damages to E. Jean Carroll, we all knew that Trump would be tempted to keep verbally attacking her. When Carroll was asked about the matter in a TV interview, she suggested that she’ll go after him again in court if he does keep up the attacks.

For quite some time now Trump has remained silent about Carroll, even while ranting about everyone else under the sun. But now that Trump has lost everything in a New York civil fraud verdict, he’s resumed attacking Carroll.

Today Trump attacked Carroll during a speech and, crucially, claimed that he has no idea who she is. This is precisely the kind of thing that Carroll nailed Trump for in the first place. In response to her claim (validated by the previous trial) that he raped her, he keeps claiming that he’s never even met her.




This kicks the door wide open for E. Jean Carroll to take Donald Trump back to court. If she does, she’ll very likely end up with yet another massive verdict against him. These kinds of penalties tend to go up for repeat offenses, not down. What Carroll decides to do is up to her. But if she wants another victory against Trump, he just handed one to her.
