Comments:

Hint: Being chancellor mostly is about fundraising. Imagine, PIAPS "queen" for five years. Argh! "Female". Herself is definitely gender neutral.

This hag is irrelevant in this country so she has to go overseas to fill her pockets with money. Can she legally be a Chancellor in another country and POTUS at the same time. I guess so.....she does anything she wants whether it is legal or not.

For sure Her Heinous will work her huge butt off up in Ulster. She's such a giving, selfless, loving person ... BOOM! ... the lightning rod over my head just saved my life, redirecting the bolt harmlessly into the ground. Some One up there wasn't going to stand for any more bovine scatology, even the sarcastic sort. Sinecures for themselves and their children are what connected political figures are all about, and some are brazen about it, especially the porcine trough dweller Clintons. Maybe Tom Brokaw will chime in from his retirement community and pronounce the PIAPS's new position the same as the surname of his old NBC colleague John: "Chance-o-WAR." (Remember that Brokaw is rhetorically a lambdacist par excellence. Imagine him saying "Loyola in Chicago, Illinois.")

FTA: "The role of chancellor lasts for five years, and Ms Clinton will act as an advisor to the vice chancellor Professor Ian Greer and senior management as part of it." So the Chancellor advises the Vice-Chancellor? What a joke. Sounds like a contrived position with a title ten times greater than its responsibilities or authority. University Ambassador and Fund-Raising Toy Monkey might be a more-accurate title.

A commemorative calendar has been published by the European Space Agency showcasing 12 lesser-known images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope, marking 30 years since its launch. The spectacular selection of images show galactic mergers, dying stars and diamond like clusters - all taken by the telescope over 30 years. They've been dubbed 'hidden gems' by ESA. The telescope, named after American astronomer Edwin Hubble, was launched in April 1990 as a joint NASA and ESA mission. In its three decades of operation it has helped pin down the age of the universe, understand seasons on other planets and improve out understanding of planets outside of the Solar System.

The State Department issued a security alert early Friday morning urging Americans in Iraq to leave the country immediately. The warning comes hours after Iran promised “harsh retaliation” against the United States for an airstrike that killed top Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani at the Baghdad International Airport. “Due to heightened tensions in Iraq and the region, we urge U.S. citizens to depart Iraq immediately,” the State Department said in the alert. (Tweet) The alert also said all consular operations are suspended at the U.S. embassy in Baghdad “Due to Iranian-backed militia attacks at the U.S. Embassy compound.”

The killing of the Iranian General Qassem Soleimani in a US attack at Baghdad International Airport is a game-changer in relations between the US and Iran, with far-reaching implications for the region. (Snip) Trump used the opportunity to blame Iran for coordinating unrest and anti-US rioting in Baghdad and threatened to punish the Iranian leadership. The US appears to have followed through with that threat by killing Soleimani along with Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, a senior leader of the Shiite militia, as well as an unnamed senior leader of the Lebanese Hezbollah. All three organisations have been listed as terrorist by the US.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is calling on the Trump administration to immediately brief lawmakers on the U.S. airstrike that killed a top Iranian commander in Iraq and what the White House plans to do next. The strike in Iraq was directed by President Donald Trump and killed Qassem Soleimani, the commander of Iran's secretive Quds Force, the Department of Defense announced Thursday night. The move, which is likely to provoke retaliation from Iran, comes amid heightened tensions between the Trump administration and Tehran over rocket attacks aimed at coalition forces in Iraq. U.S. officials have said those attacks were likely carried out by Iranian-backed militias with links to the Quds Force.

So much for the taunt from Iran’s “supreme leader,” Ayatollah Khamanei, that America “cannot do a damn thing” about Iran’s attack on our embassy in Baghdad. It took President Trump but a day after that jibe to wheel on the Iranians. He launched a drone attack that found and killed the commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, General Qassim Soleimani. It is likely to mark a turning point in the not-so-quasi war that Iran has been levying against us — and, among others, Israel. This is not a situation in which responsibility is being debated on murky evidence.

The U.S. killing of Qassim Soleimani In Baghdad on Thursday ends an enduring threat. At least in the short term, however, it will unleash Iranian retaliation. The leader of the external action arm of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Soleimani long led that regime's efforts to destroy its enemies and expand its revolution. From an explosive campaign that killed hundreds of U.S. soldiers in Iraq, to supporting Bashar Assad's regime with legions of Shiite fighters and IRGC operatives, to conducting a campaign of bombings and assassinations and intimidation across the world, Soleimani was a master of his very dark arts.

Qassim Soleimani has been in control of Iran’s Quds Force for more than 20 years. His current greatest hits include helping Bashar al Assad slaughter hundreds of thousands of his own people in the Syrian civil war, stoking the Houthis in Yemen’s civil war, and overseeing the killing of hundreds of Iraqi protesters recently demonstrating against Iranian influence in their country.
