    Seven multinational companies launched a Partnership for LGBTI Equality on Tuesday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. For the first time, the high-profile club of global political and economic leaders welcomed a special session for “LGBTI rights,” which world businesses want to promote and implement according to United Nations LGBTI Standards of Conduct, with the backing of the WEF and the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. The new initiative is led by Accenture, Deutsche Bank, EY, MasterCard, Microsoft, Omnicom, and Salesforce. They aim to enlist at least 100 more companies from WEF members...

    Quote: “America is open for business, and we are competitive once again.” End quote. That was just one of the key lines in President Trump’s highly successful Davos speech this week. Of course, in going to Davos, Trump entered the lion’s den. A year ago such a visit would have been a poor idea. Back then, elitist heads of state, the EU bureaucrats, and the international CEOs were uniformly against Donald Trump. But Trump’s 2018 Davos strategy was a brilliant stroke. A year later he could make the fact-based argument that, in his words, “The world is witnessing the...

    By Ryan KhuranaIt’s time for the World Economic Forum once again, when a subset of the world’s rich elite meet in Davos, Switzerland for a luxurious few days of self-congratulations, while they lampoon another subset of the rich elite for all global problems. The festivities as usual are heralded by the Oxfam report on global inequality, this year entitled “Reward Work, not Wealth.”Oxfam calculates, using a data set provided by Credit Suisse, that 42 people own 50 percent of the world’s total wealth. From this and other insights about the top 1 percent, such as their collective ownership of 82...

    President Donald Trump again criticized the news media, but this time in Davos, Switzerland, at the World Economic Forum. “It wasn’t until I became a politician that I realized how nasty, how mean, how vicious, and how fake the press can be,” Trump said, as some in the audience booed. He joked that the cameras were “going off in the back” after his comment. One reporter in the room noted that foreign journalists joined the boos from people in the audience. Trump said he used to get great press from the media when he was a celebrity businessman but that...

    Despite embodying the antithesis of the usual celebration of globalism by elites, President Donald Trump has emerged as the most fawned-over attendee of the World Economic Forum's annual conference in Davos, Switzerland, since Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt attended in 2006. "A World Economic Forum official said no Davos attendee had gotten as much attention since Angelina Jolie," Mike Allen of the news website Axios reported. Trump, who was never invited to Davos as a businessman, has become the focus of attention as the conference draws to a close and anticipation builds over a speech he's set to give Friday....

    President Trump on Thursday stated that he would withhold any aid money from the Palestinians until they reach peace talks with Israel as the U.S. president sat with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu at an economic summit in Switzerland in which China has actually moved ahead of the U.S. in many respects. Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital last year which upset many Muslim Arab nations and resulted in the Palestinians refusing to meet with Vice President Mike Pence on his visit to the region this week. The Palestinians no longer trusts the current U.S. administration. Consequently, Trump declared that the...

The Drive-Bys expected Trump to be protested! They expected Trump to be shunned. They hoped for all of this, and what this presents us today is a great opportunity. You know, our all-time favorite audio sound bites — and it’s tough; I mean, it may not be the all-time favorite, but it ranks right there.

    The prime minister is to call on investors to boycott social media platforms that do not delete and censor perceived “extremist” views. Speaking at the Davos World Economic Forum, Theresa May will argue that not enough is being done to fight terrorism and paedophiles online. However, right-wing opinions are already frequently censored on social media and other schemes championed by Mrs. May, such as the Prevent count-terror programme, have been used to target critics of Islam and members of UKIP. “Technology companies still need to go further in stepping up to their responsibilities for dealing with harmful and illegal online...

    Speaking to reporters during a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Thursday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, President Trump touted his decision to officially move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and slammed the Palestinians for their ongoing disrespect of the peace process. "What I did with Jerusalem was my honor," Trump said. "We give [Palestinians] hundreds of millions of dollars of aid and support. Tremendous numbers. Numbers nobody understands. That money is on the table and that money's not going to them unless they sit down and negotiate peace. Because I can tell...

    More than 1,000 private jet flights have been delivering globalist elites to the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, where attendees are discussing — among other topics — the ‘major threat’ of climate change. Airports around the Swiss ski resort will see the number of private jets spike 335 per cent during the annual meeting of world elites, according to Air Charter Service (ACS). Research commissioned by the jet hire company found an average 218 private jet movements a day during the weeklong forum, compared to the 65 daily flights Swiss airfields usually deal with.

    A growing number of Davos attendees are planning to walk out of US president Donald Trump’s speech at the World Economic Forum this Friday (Jan. 26), several conference-goers told Quartz, to protest his remarks about African countries earlier this month. Trump repeatedly called African countries “shitholes” in a closed-door meeting about immigration, attendee Senator Dick Durbin and others have said. Boycotting Trump’s Davos speech was first broached by Business Leadership South Africa CEO (and Davos attendee) Bonang Mohale in an open letter. Leaving Trump’s speech after he starts is probably more powerful than boycotting it entirely, some Davos attendees speculate.

    resident Trump is headed to Davos Wednesday night as positive reviews of his tax cuts stream in from CEOs and financiers from around the globe. National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn claimed Tuesday that the administration’s economic agenda has "unleashed the U.S. economy" and it looks like the executive class gathered in the Swiss Alps largely agrees. Speaking at the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting this week, Credit Suisse CEO Tidjane Thiam proclaimed, "Tax reform in the U.S. has been exactly what we needed ... to give a new impetus to world growth.”

    [clip] The right wants regulation too, but of a very different kind. Multiple right-wing commentators have called for Google and Facebook, whose market share eclipses old 20th-century monopolies like Standard Oil and the Bell System, to be regulated like utilities. The impetus is the threat of political bias from companies that now have more influence over the flow of news and information than any other company in history. Facebook, through a recent change to its news feed algorithm, threatens to undercut the success of new media outlets. Google, by tweaking its search results, could swing an election anywhere in the...

    DAVOS, Switzerland — One could get the feeling that President Trump might not be set for a rousing welcome when he arrives in this Swiss Alps resort this week to address the annual gathering of the World Economic Forum. The forum, a pilgrimage for the wealthy and powerful, is an unabashed champion of globalization. It advocates ceaselessly for the notion that every problem — from climate change to joblessness to terrorism to cybersecurity — requires international cooperation and multilateral solutions. Mr. Trump’s derisive rejection of such ideas as the woolly-headed notions of the global elite is central to his identity....
