  • Why China Plans to Invade Taiwan

    The National Interest ^ | 11 Dec, 2017 | Ian Easton
    A Chinese diplomat in Washington recently threatened that China would invade Taiwan if the U.S. Navy sent a ship to visit the democratic island, something that Congress has called upon the Pentagon to do in 2018. Is this just empty rhetoric? Or does it reflect Beijing's actual intentions? It's actually a bit of both. According to leaked Chinese military documents (analyzed here), Taiwan stands to lose more from the rise of China as a twenty-first-century superpower than any other country in the world. Indeed, China's emergence as the world’s second largest political, economic and military power threatens the interests of...

    Now, if this was in any private sector venture, no one at the top would have a job and there would probably be some civil prosecution that would take place, but it's government.  So, all parties involved will not be fire and will enjoy a long and profitable retirement compliments of the very people whose money they "lost." A new report by Dr. Mark Skidmore, a professor of economics at Michigan State University, and Catherine Austin Fitts, former assistant secretary of housing analyzed the budgets of both the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)...

    Imagine you’re a single guy. You meet a woman who appears to be sane and nice. She’s not sporting the signature rainbow hair, “statement” glasses, and hallmark sour, judgmental scowl that seems to be endemic to crazy third-wave feminists (but I repeat myself) today, and you decide to meet for a first date. You gallantly hold the door open for her, and pull out her chair, because, you know, respect. She twists her lips into an acerbic scowl, but says nothing. You figure maybe she got a splinter from the chair, or maybe she has indigestion or something, so you...

    If you were having any doubts that the corporate left-wing mainstream media is the real opposition party and President Trump’s sworn enemy, here’s an article, more of an essay actually, published in Huffington Post, which announces its readers that after his 1st year in the White House, President Trump is winning, against all odds. The essay is signed by Earl Ofari Hutchinson and begins with: “This is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to write and admit. Trump is winning.” Why is that, you may ask? Well, according to the author, who’s also a co-host of the Al...

    North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is so powerful that he can control nature, the country’s government-run newspaper Rodong Sinmun claims. In an article detailing Kim Jong Un’s recent visit to Mt. Paektu over the weekend, the newspaper claims that he stopped a blizzard and brought about “fine weather” as he “ascended” hiking "through thick snow" to the 9,000-foot peak of the mountain. “When Kim Jong Un ascended to the top of it, going through thick snow, it showed fine weather unprecedented in the blizzard of December winter, exposing its majestic figure,” the newspaper reads. The newspaper calls Kim Jong...

    More than six years ago, on October 1, 2008, with the 2008 presidential elections just a month away, the left-wing Nation magazine published an article entitled "McCain's Kremlin ties".[i] This article investigated the ties between one of the richest and politically most powerful persons in Russia, the husband of Boris Yeltsin's grand-daughter, Oleg Deripaska and the long-time US Senator and, at the time, the Republican presidential candidate John McCain... The article made much of a meeting between Deripaska and McCain in the coastal Montenegrin town of Kotor on August 30, 2006. Allegedly, McCain celebrated his 70th birthday on board of...

    This week Colon Kaepernick, the original “kneeling football player,” was honored with the annual Ho Chi Minh Red Star award for his efforts against capitalist oppression. The gem-encrusted jewel was presented by 1972 award recipient Jane Fonda at the ACLU of Southern California’s annual Bill of Rights Dinner. Fonda hailed “Kaepernick’s extraordinary courage in the face of the extreme dangers he endured while being forced to risk life and limb for the amusement of unjustly rich team owners and rabidly racist fans of the barbaric sport as a player and the enmity of those who disrespected his right to disrespect...

    A judge on Dec. 8 released graphic video showing Daniel Shaver crawling on his hands and knees and begging for his life before he was shot and killed. The shooting, by Philip “Mitch” Brailsford, then an officer with the Mesa Police Department, occurred after officers responded to a call about a man allegedly pointing a rifle out of a fifth-floor window at a La Quinta Inn. The graphic video, which was released after a jury on Thursday acquitted the officer of murder and manslaughter charges, stoked outrage on social media and renewed calls for reforms in law enforcement. See the...

    This is just a vanity but I've been likening this political game like a chess game. Trumps methodically taking out major progressive/liberal/DNC pieces and the Democrats keep pushing pawns ahead to try and protect them. Right now the Progressives strength seems to be King, Knight, Bishop and 3 pawns to Trump's king, 2 rooks and 2 bishops. and 2 pawns. We're reaching the end game here and it looks like Trump has mate in 4 against the Dems. Trump's going to shut Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. I hope it's over her flirtations when looking for campaign donations ... wouldn't that be...

    In light of all the recent 'allegations', a kind of water cooler discussion started at my workplace among the men in particular. How far beyond politics is this going to go? Today, we have a young woman here who for the 2nd day in a row, is wearing VERY provocative clothing. We're talking "no-man-is-looking-at-her-face" type clothing. If continued unchecked, this woman will probably find herself propositioned or worse somewhere around the work place. Being a not so young man, this is not the first time I've seen women dressing/behaving like this is the work place, and yes, there are dress...
  • Narcissist Gov. Jerry Brown’s Diversions From Responsibility

    CA Gov. Jerry Brown’s War Against the Truth All Hell is breaking loose in California as residents are being burned out of their homes, neighborhoods and businesses, while Gov. Jerry Brown is jetting around the world spouting climate change propaganda. He calls this California’s ‘new normal.’ “With climate change, some scientists are saying Southern California is literally burning up, and burning up as maybe a metaphor or a description not just to the fires right here, but what we can expect over the next years and decades,” Brown said. I say ‘propaganda’ because Brown loves to cloak himself in false...

    Bangladeshi jihadist Akayed Ullah used family ties to get here A would-be Muslim suicide bomber’s attempt to kill morning rush hour commuters in Manhattan yesterday is throwing much-needed light on our disastrous “chain migration” immigration system that admits foreigners based merely on family connections. Around 7:20 Monday morning what police called “an improvised, low-tech” pipe-bomb style device detonated prematurely while strapped to the body of jihadist immigrant and Brooklyn resident Akayed Ullah, 27, in a subway passageway between Times Square and the Port Authority, a massive bus terminal, in Manhattan. Another unexploded device was found on his person. As a...

    Trump did the right thing in withdrawing the United States from this latest example of the UN globalists' efforts to chip away at national sovereignty. The Trump administration has decided to withdraw from participation in the United Nations Global Compact on Migration, representing another significant departure from the global governance policies of the Obama administration. In September 2016, during the waning days of the Obama administration, the United States had joined with the other member states of the UN to adopt a “non-binding “political declaration, the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants. They agreed to undertake negotiations towards a...

TMZ reports: Mario Batali is accused of "inappropriate touching" by 4 women -- 3 of them former employees -- and the allegation is forcing the celebrity chef to step away from his restaurant empire.One of Batali's accusers called him "creepy" and said he gave "me this provocative, icky feeling." Other claims are he groped a woman's breasts, grabbed someone from behind and compelled her to straddle him. Batali issued a statement saying “I apologize to the people I have mistreated and...

    Many gun enthusiasts likes to show off their weaponry and sometimes they’re doing it without the thought of safety. For example Youtuber FPS Russia, he has some serious videos of action/explosive mayhem shots. Such as shooting at an object with tannerite that explodes on impact. Its very fun to watch but you should check out the debris flying around him. Did you see that debris from the truck? I admit it really is fun to watch and probably fun for FPS to be the one shooting it. Good thing he has 9 lives. However, we don’t recommend you do try...

    Late on Monday, we learned that the Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, had suddenly and without real explanation cancelled his long-scheduled appearance to testify before the House Intelligence Committee today. Fox News reporter Chad Pergram tweeted Monday night that “congressional sources” told him that a subpoena would likely be issued to try to compel his appearance. That’s fairly ironic, since it took a threatened subpoena in early November to convince McCabe to agree to testify in the first place. Pergram further reported that his sources believe McCabe cancelled his appearance due to a concern that he would be...
