  • U.S Embassy in Addis Ababa issued a statement about some of the news that were circulating in social media

    We have seen questions on Facebook about a quota system for Ethiopian visa applicants.

    Last week, the President of the United States initiated a review of national security procedures which applies to visitors and potential immigrants from seven countries. Ethiopia is not among those seven countries and Ethiopian citizens are not addressed nor affected by the President’s executive order.

    The U.S. Government remains committed to facilitating legitimate travel for international visitors. In fact, in 2016, the U.S. Embassy in Addis Ababa issued more than 18,000 non-immigrant visas, with the majority to Ethiopian applicants.

  • [Breaking News] Hundreds of Deportees from United States Stuck at Addis Ababa Bole International Airport, following Trump’s Executive Order

     Hundreds of deportees from several airports across the United States have stuck at Ethiopia’s Bole International Airport, media reports disclosed

    The deportees were sent back to Ethiopia after the newly elected U.S President Donald Trump banned entry to the United States from seven countries.

    It is not yet clear why those passengers said to be of Somali, Sudanese and Yemeni origins preferred Ethiopia to be their destination and staying at the departure terminal of Bole Airport.

    Ethiopia’s Foreign Affairs Minister, Dr. Workineh Gebyehu refused to comment on the matter saying “I have no information on the matter”

    Ethio-News flash, an online media outlet allegedly funded by the ministry of foreign affairs, on its part reported that some of the deportees are about to file lawsuits against the Trump administration.

    Simon Sandoval-Moshenberg, is filing charges against the U.S government, representing two Yemeni brothers who were deported from Dulles International Airport and forced to sign a document relinquishing their green cards.

    “I am informed that there are a ton of returnees from airports all over the US, at Addis Ababa Intl, and the Ethiopian government is telling them they have only one more day to stay before it kicks them all out back to the countries they originally came from,” Simon Sandoval-Moshenberg was quoted as saying by ethio-news flash.

  • ‘I’ll be back!’: Defeated candidate Clinton considers launching liberal television show to lay the groundwork for ANOTHER White House run

    • Hillary Clinton is reportedly considering the launch of a TV show to keep herself in the news
    • The move would position her for a 2020 presidential run, according to an insider
    • She recently offered a toast to friends gathered at her Washington home, affecting an Arnold Schwarzenegger accent and promising: ‘I’ll be back’ 
    • Clinton doesn’t think Barack Obama will fight enough for liberal priorities, ‘which leaves an opening for her to be the acknowledged leader-in-exile of her party’

    Hillary Clinton is considering another run for president – and is mulling the idea of launching a television talk show to soften the ground for 2020.

    Clinton would be 73 years old if she were to challenge President Donald Trump – again – and win the White House the next time around.

    Launching a TV program now would make her America’s second-oldest female news or talk show host on the small screen, after only Joy Behar of ‘The View.’

    Author Ed Klein wrote Wednesday on his blog that according to a Clinton insider, the former secretary of state is open to the idea.

    ‘She thinks being the host of a popular TV show would energize the Democratic Party base and her tens of millions of fans,’ the unnamed source said, according to Klein.

    ‘It’s a way to make a comeback and position herself for another run at the White House starting in a year or so.’

    Clinton, Klein writes, recently told a group of friends gathered at her Washington, D.C. home: ‘I’ll be back’ – and delivered the line in an Arnold Schwarzenegger ‘Terminator’ accent as she raised a glass of wine.

    A planned comeback as a presidential candidate for the third time would preclude the idea of running for mayor of New York City.

    It would also take more lucrative opportunities off the table, including corporate boards and university chancellorships.

    But the Clintons are among the nation’s richest Democratic politicians, reaping hundreds of millions of dollars in speaking fees since Bill Clinton left the White House in 2001.

    eeping up with the daily grind of a TV show would also allay fears among Democrats that her health is too frail to survive the rigors of the presidency.

    Klein’s source said Hillary has ‘been talking very seriously’ about a star turn on television.

    ‘As a TV host, she’d discuss the issues of the day from a progressive point of view, have top guests, interview world leaders and progressive thinkers.’

    Hillary, in this scenario, would control everything about the show to make sure nothing unexpected could derail her future ambitions.

    ‘She’s convinced she’d get fabulous ratings in a political climate where there’s so much anger in Democratic circles over Donald Trump’s election,’ the insider said.

    It’s unclear where a Hillary Clinton show would air, or when.

    But the source declared to Klein that Clinton is ‘utterly determined not to fade into the background. She intends to stay in the limelight and keep fighting the good fight.’

    ‘She knows Obama is going to be out there fighting too. But frankly, she doesn’t think he’s a great leader or a great fighter, which leaves an opening for her to be the acknowledged leader-in-exile of her party.’
