For the first time in history, the first day at least will be live broadcast on giant social network Facebook, according to an announcement CNN says Republican leadership will make today. It’s big news, but it also raises interesting questions about media and politics in the current era.Specifically, the live streaming will be done on the Republicans’ page for PledgeToAmerica. When the Obama inauguration was live broadcast in 2009, the video appeared on CNN.com but was powered by Facebook Connect, which allowed viewers to see comments posted exclusively by their Facebook friends, if they so chose. CNN said at the time that 5.3 million video streams of that event were delivered.Will the Facebook live stream be available for embedding around the web tomorrow? That’s unclear. Will critics and gloaters be able to have separate but visitable conversations about the now Republican-controlled Congress, or will it just be one giant shouting match?Will viewers of the Pledge to America page be required to declare to all their Facebook friends that they Like the Republican Party in order to gain viewing or commenting access to the stream, as was so widely grimaced about when George W. Bush started a Facebook page?Will any other online media outlets be allowed to live stream the proceedings, or will it just be Facebook? Twitter? Current.tv? UStream? Who will the new Hellen Thomas of live online social politics be – sitting in the front row and asking difficult questions for decades?Actually, it’s unclear whether Facebook itself will be providing the live stream or whether it will simply be Republicans embedding a live stream on their own Facebook page. I’ve emailed Facebook for clarification and to answer some of the more specific questions. Will Facebook staff be on camera hosting the coverage as they have in other instances? The company recently live-streamed an on-site visit by George W. Bush and it was quite charming (I say that as a non-Republican, too). Update: Andrew Noyes, Facebook’s Manager of Public Policy Communications, got back to us by email and had this to say. “Hundreds of members of Congress use Facebook to communicate and connect with their constituents in an official capacity and we’re excited to see Facebook being used prominently as the 112th Congress gavels into session this week.” It turns out that Rep. Boehner, the new Republican Speaker of the House, is leading the effort with his new media team. Facebook is, however, one of very few 3rd party services that Congress has approved for official use, something that was a subject of controversy when the US government started using YouTube prominently.Many questions philosophical and practical about the implementation will be answered tomorrow morning, but no matter how it goes down, it’s hard to argue that things haven’t changed in the worlds of media and politics.

K. France Germany Italy Japan and Canada–in La Malbaie Quebec on June 8 and 9 is unusually interesting The host nation’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau previewed the G-7 meeting as “extraordinarily valuable because it’s an opportunity for like-minded nations to come together and talk about shared challenges” Like-minded Shared challenges Not with a US President who sees allies as constraints and prefers to get things done by twisting arms and making threats Donald Trump made his mark in the cutthroat world of New York real estate the way a tough-minded poker player bullies those at the table with less money to spend He played as if he had bottomless pockets The guy who is not afraid to lose a few hands likes to push the stakes to go all in and to dare those across the table to accept more risk by staying in the game With that strategy he won many hands without always holding the best cards or sitting on a fat wallet As President Trump brought this strategy to the table with South Korea and Brazil When he made trade threats the governments of those countries knew they could bring the US before the World Trade Organization and (probably) win But that would take years and their economies would suffer much damage in the meantime Instead they cut deals And so they figured: Give the bully some of what he wants and maybe he’ll turn his attention toward someone else (The renegotiation of NAFTA may eventually end in the same fashion) But there are limits to this strategy What happens when someone calls Trump’s bluff If Kim Jong Un steps into the white-hot spotlight that follows Trump and offers him something tomorrow but nothing today what does Trump do about it Launch a strike that risks a war Call him names Threaten tariffs on China so it puts more pressure on North Korea Furthermore what happens when Trump discovers he doesn’t have the big advantage he thinks he has Trump believes (correctly) that if it comes to a trade war the US economy can withstand more pain than the Chinese economy But Chinese President Xi Jinping believes (correctly) that Trump is politically much more vulnerable; Xi doesn’t need to win swing states to remain in charge Sanctions targeted at Trump voters can do more damage more quickly than Trump might expect Finally when you discover you’ve picked a tougher fight than you expected it’s best to have friends in the room Like say the G-7 allies But as those meeting with Trump in Quebec during this summit already know Trump’s “America first” approach is backed by the threat of US power not the opportunities created by shared values and common interests Because of this it’s worth noting the meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization which will bring Russia India Iran and others to China on June 9 and 10 The Europeans Japanese and Canadians all know that trade with China will be a big part of their future China may even soon overtake the US as the EU’s largest trade partner International relations are not a poker game In a world of “every nation for itself”–a G-zero world–it’s harder than ever to accomplish anything ambitious without allies Trump’s indiscriminate use of “I dare you to fight” tactics with friends and foes alike is eroding not only traditional alliances but also the institutions those alliances have sustained over many decades Over the long term that’s bad for the US and bad for the world Contact us at [email protected] This appears in the June 18 2018 issue of TIME IDEAS TIME Ideas hosts the world’s leading voices providing commentary on events in news society and culture We welcome outside contributions Opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect the views of TIME editors The memorandum also stated that the Law School Hijab crises had brought to the fore the myriad of persecution faced by Muslim women because of hijab in various sectors.
