From Trump & Putin to social justice celebrities: #Time100 influencers list
Time magazine has published its annual list of 100 most influential people in the world, ranging from world leaders like Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump to celebrities and social justice activists.

First published in 1999, the list is subdivided into categories like Pioneers, Artists, Leaders, Icons and Titans. Former US President Barack Obama holds the record for being included most often – 11 times.

Current US President Donald Trump is listed in the Leaders category, with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) praising him as the man who “completely rewrote the rules of politics and reset the course of this country.”

Ryan was notably less enthusiastic about Trump during the presidential campaign, and the GOP frontrunner returned the favor by speaking well of Ryan’s primary challenger, Paul Nehlen.

President Trump and his two warring aides – Jared Kushner and Steve Bannon – were included on this year’s Time 100 list.

Trump’s chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon, also made the Leaders category, with Time deputy managing editor Michael Duffy describing the former Breitbart executive as “nursing an angry, nationalist, America-first flame” for the first 75 days of the new administration, until Trump found it “too disruptive.”

The Pioneers category included Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, both of whom currently serve as White House advisers. Former top US diplomat Henry Kissinger wrote about Kushner’s “daunting role flying close to the sun,” while media magnate Rupert Murdoch’s ex-wife Wendi praised Ivanka as “entrepreneur and a devoted wife and mother.”

“Now women and girls around the globe can look up to @IvankaTrump,” writes Wendi Murdoch http://ti.me/2pFWbVK 

Former Pentagon and CIA chief Robert Gates praised Trump’s Defense Secretary James “Jim” Mattis as someone who “will do what is necessary to protect the country, and he will care for our men and women in uniform as if they were his own children.”

Trump’s chief of staff, Reince Priebus, received a kind word or two from current Chicago, Illinois Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who held the “all-consuming, thankless job” during Obama’s first term.

On the other side of the aisle, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) was praised by his predecessor Harry Reid (D-Nevada), while newly minted Senator Kamala Harris (D-California) penned a paean to her persistent colleague Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts). Congressman John Lewis (D-Georgia) was recognized as a civil rights icon.

The newly elected Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez was endorsed by former party chair and Hillary Clinton running mate Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Virginia). Clinton did not make the list, however, nor did her rival for the nomination, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont), despite his continued influence in Democratic politics.

Wondering how the hell Chuck Schumer and Tom Perez made over Bernie

WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange was also recognized in the Leaders category, although his profile revolved around the accusations of WikiLeaks being a part of the “Russian hacking” alleged by the Democrats and even some members of the Trump administration.

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s entry was penned by former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, who used it to argue that that “Russia is ready for political competition, a real multi-party system, fair elections and regular rotation of government.”

Gorbachev has previously credited Putin with “saving Russia” from disintegration and criticized the West for spreading democracy “like coffee in bags.”

The Pope made the list, as did the leaders of India, the UK, Turkey, China, Colombia, Thailand and the Philippines. The Icons category notably included Philippine Senator Leila de Lima, a fierce critic of President Rodrigo Duterte who called him a “murderous psychopath.” De Lima’s entry was written by former US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power.

Another Icon was former San Francisco 49s quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who “boldly and courageously confronted perceived inequalities in our social-justice system” by kneeling in protest at National Football League (NFL) games during the US national anthem, according to his entry.

The list also included Jeanette Vizguerra, an immigration reform advocate who sought refuge in a Denver, Colorado church, and Gavin Grimm, a transgender Virginia teen who sued his school over bathroom access. Actor George Takei praised Bob Ferguson, the Washington state attorney general who crusaded for gay rights in 2013 and led the charge against Trump’s travel ban earlier this year.

“Thank you, @GeorgeTakei — I’m a huge fan and hope to meet you some day.” -BF http://ti.me/2oWXoqD 

The inclusion of Linda Sarsour, one of the organizers of the January 21 Women’s March, drew criticism due to her comments about female critics of Islam involving genital mutilation.

Tories are miles ahead in the polls, this is nothing but a very well played political maneuver by Theresa May to secure a majority Government, removing all roadblocks Labour / SNP have tried to put in place. Corbyn is a dreamer, he wants us to live in la la land. The Tories have the best stance on BREXIT.
