Former FBI Director James Comey (shown) is a lot of things — a liar, a perjurer, an Establishment lackey, and a disgrace to the agency he led before being fired by President Trump — but one thing he is not is disorganized. The man appears to keep meticulous notes and seems to have the organizational skills of a person with Obsessive/Compulsive Disorder.
Sino-US trade war, Hong Kong "anti -extradition bill" march, the judgment of the Independent People's Court on Falun Gong, the United States strictly examining visa applications for human rights and religious persecution violators from China coming to the US, & the CCP's high-level "wreck plan", 2019 is indeed an unusual year
MSNBC talker Lawrence O’Donnell has retracted his claim that “Russian oligarchs” guaranteed loans for President Donald Trump. O’Donnell based his claim on a single source he did not name, and he confessed that he did not attempt to verify the source’s claims, a mortal sin for a journalist, particularly one of O’Donnell’s repute and fame. The left-wing host confessed his negligence in a tweet and on his program last night.
After Taiwan sent Beijing into a frenzy by inking a mega defense deal with the U.S., the island nation has once again rattled the Chinese government by revealing its domestic built “suicide drones.” Named Jian Hsiang, translated as the “Flying Sword,” it was one among the 80-plus locally manufactured pieces of military equipment displayed by Taiwan at the Taipei Aerospace and Defence Technology Exhibition.
Queen Elizabeth II has granted a request by Prime Minister Boris Johnson to suspend Parliament ahead of the October 31 date for Great Britain to leave the European Union. The highly controversial move will allow far less time for parliamentary debate ahead of the new deadline and increases the odds of a no-deal Brexit, which some claim would be disastrous for Great Britain’s economy.
In July, the government of India released its census data of 2001-2011. Though the fact that the information was released eight years after data collection surprised many people, what made the statistics interesting are the numbers on Chinese migrants. During the 10-year period, the number of overall Chinese migrants fell from 23,712 to 14.951.
As mainland Chinese are showing off their wealth more than ever — enjoying extravagant holidays, buying up international real estate, and sending their children abroad to flood top universities — the upcoming movie promised to be a good investment for Disney. The timing was perfect… but then there was Hong Kong.
Among China’s totalitarian policies, perhaps one of the most egregious — besides, of course, a limit on how many children a couple may have — is the invasive “Social Credit System.” If you are unfamiliar, yes, it’s as bad as it sounds. Since 2014, citizens are given a rating (similar to a credit score) on how well they behave. Their “Social Credit Rating” covers things such as whether a citizen jaywalks, buys products made in China, smokes in a non-smoking area, and what they post and share online.
The White House is preparing an executive order that would allow state and local jurisdictions to deny entry to refugees even if they have been approved for settlement by the federal government, according to a draft of the policy obtained by NBC News. The draft features language stating that “the federal government will resettle refugees only where both the relevant state and local governments have consented to participate.”
Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of the most successful animated TV shows to ever come from the United States. The series started airing in February 2005 and wrapped up in 2008. Viewers got instantly hooked into an epic story of how inequality and greed for power can trigger social changes of catastrophic proportions. While the story of the show is praiseworthy, what makes it distinct is how heavily Avatar borrows from Eastern culture, from the spiritual concepts to martial arts.
Several people have been recently jailed by the Chinese authorities for being “spiritually Japanese,” including a young woman who drew more than 300 cartoons deemed to have “humiliated China.” Zhang Dongning, a 22-year-old college student from Huainan in eastern China’s Anhui Province, was reported to be an enthusiast of Japanese culture and was arrested upon returning from a trip to Japan. In her comics, Ms. Zhang drew all Chinese people as anthropomorphized pigs, or “ pigple.”
It used to be that Fagin types would merely recruit poor kids such as Oliver Twist to pickpockets, but today’s exploiters of innocence operate on a grander scale. The best current example may be 16-year-old Swedish “climate activist” Greta Thunberg (shown), who, it’s reported, is being financed by green corporate energy companies looking to turn a profit.
Just two days after Walmart posted its blowout numbers for the second quarter and predicted that sales would continue to grow “to the upper end of the 2.5% to 3.0% range” next year, the president tweeted his approval: “Our Economy is very strong.” But then he added that he wants it even stronger, and the main obstacle is the Fed!
Since school is starting soon for many people, I wanted to share some tips on how to stay productive and study better! For all those freshmen out there, be sure not to procrastinate because high school is way different from middle school. Remember that your first year in high school is one of the most important, as it can affect your GPA badly throughout your high school career.
As companies and militaries pour billions of dollars into developing AI, the need for regulation is said to be critical. Imagine an advanced AI getting access to nuclear codes and deciding to launch weapons. While it might sound like sci-fi, the truth is that such a situation won’t be so ludicrous a few years from now. Some politicians say that they can regulate AI with strict laws. But this seems to be a fool’s dream in the long run.
Shouldn’t we worry about the mainland sending troops to Hong Kong, as Hongkongers? If the army is needed to resolve the situation in Hong Kong, I believe its citizens and protesters will “be water”; we know how to behave. If all was well, we’d go home and sleep,” said a representative of the demonstrators.
The global empire of Googledom is under attack. Over the past year, the tech behemoth (and its parent company, Alphabet Inc.) has sustained some serious body blows. And more appear to be coming. Most recently, billionaire tech titan Peter Thiel (PayPal, Palantir Technologies, Clarium Capital, Founders Fund) grabbed headlines and shook markets by calling for an investigation by the FBI and CIA of Google for having “engaged in the seemingly treasonous decision to work with the Chinese military and not with the US military.”
Dozens of media outlets warned of possible violence in Portland, Oregon, on Saturday as the Proud Boys, an organization of men that welcomes all races, creeds, and sexual orientations so long as they support Western values rallied in the city. And, boy, were the media right. But none of the violence came from the right on Saturday. No, Saturday’s violence was a product of our favorite left-wing terrorist group Antifa. The Proud Boys group marched briefly and left the area. But as the day wore on, Portland police were forced to declare the ongoing disruption caused by Antifa a “civil disturbance” and order people to disburse. Portland police made at least 13 arrests during Saturday’s protests — none of which appeared to be associated with the Proud Boys.
Following backlash by high-profile Democrats over a New York Times story that headlined President Trump’s call for national unity against racism in the wake of the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, the Times’ executive editor convened a meeting of newsroom staff to address concerns that the “independent” news source was becoming too soft in its coverage of the president and needed to intensify its portrayal of Trump as a racist.
Different cultures assign different symbolic meanings to colors. While in the West, wearing black is considered ideal during funerals, in Eastern countries, white clothes are worn on such occasions. The Chinese have their own view of colors. Knowing them will come in handy if you ever visit China or attend Chinese ceremonies.
The dragon is an important creature in Chinese mythology. It is seen as a symbol of power and is often used as an embellishment in paintings and sculptures. According to traditional Chinese mythology, there are nine types of dragons, usually believed to be the nine sons of an ancient Chinese dragon king. They are said to have different looks and powers.
China has consistently denied that it harvested organs from Falun Gong practitioners and other groups. About 4,316 people have been confirmed dead (as of Aug 11, 2019) due to this state-sanctioned organ extraction. However, the real number of victims is believed to be far higher, according to independent researchers.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has dismissed Beijing’s accusations that the United States is behind the ongoing protests in Hong Kong. Already into the third month, the protests show no sign of slowing down as citizens of the city are worried that the HK government might be working hand in hand with China to bring Hong Kong under communist control.
According to TCM, a person’s internal organs and their functions have to be in balance if they are to remain healthy. Any disturbance will damage the health of the person and push them into physical and mental turmoil. Disruption in the flow of chi, considered as the vital energy of the body, makes a person weak. TCM seeks to rectify these issues through a series of treatment methods like acupuncture, herbal medication, qigong exercises, etc., so that the body’s balance is restored to its harmonious state.
A farmers’ market is where farmers sell their homegrown produce, live animals and plants, and sometimes prepared food or beverages. By allowing wholesalers into farmers’ markets, it gives more competition to small local farmers in the state. Wholesalers already sell produce and other foods in supermarkets, which isn’t what people who go to their local farmers’ market want.
As protests against the Hong Kong government continue, many people were surprised to see a few of the demonstrators waving American flags. While some believe that the flags represent a sign of freedom and democracy, pro-China media has used it as a way to insinuate that the U.S. is behind the current tensions in Hong Kong.
Exiled Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui has made it his mission to expose the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Guo fled China in 2015 and began exposing corrupt secrets of high-level Communist Party members — past and present — in 2017. Earlier, he’d made billions through real estate developments in China where he was influential with Party elite before he fled to the U.S., where he also now goes by the name of Miles Kwok.

Over the centuries, the oil has been used in aromatherapy and is believed to be good for organs like the heart, brain, and stomach.
Billionaire tech investor Peter Thiel has accused Google of siding with the Chinese military. A Facebook board member, Thiel asked that Google be federally investigated. Known as one of the few Trump supporters in Silicon Valley, Thiel’s accusations have put a spotlight on Google activities in China, some of which are not in America’s
My experience at Fei Tian College-Middletown was a great, memorable one. This was my first sleepover and my first out of state camp. I would definitely recommend this camp to anyone who is interested in data science or just wants to touch up on their skills and learn from experts. The camp was for high schoolers to college, but it was mostly dominated by those in college
He was shocked to discover what many art students eventually come to realize, that most of the fundamentals of the craft of drawing, painting, and sculpture were no longer being taught. “Something had happened to art training, and art itself and I struggled to piece together the enormity of this disaster.”
When China came to “own” Hong Kong in 1997, it had a long-term plan for bringing the city under communist control. But the recent protests by Hongkongers have shaken Beijing, making the Chinese government realize that people of the city are not just going to sit on the sidelines while they take control.
The Hong Kong government’s proposed extradition bill caused more than 2 million Hong Kong people to protest in the streets on June 16. Protesters sang Do You Hear the People Sing? while marching to call on the government for freedom and democracy. The scene moved 93-year-old lyricist Herbert Kretzmer, OBE, as he watched the protesters on television from his home in West London. He wrote an article on June 19 for Daily Mail to express his thoughts.
Indiana is now the latest state to attempt to pass a bill that would allow the National Motto “In God, We Trust” to be displayed on posters in public schools. Presently there are 16 states that already allow this. The most recent states being, Tennessee, Florida, Arkansas and now perhaps Indiana will join in.
On Sunday the Lyons family in Orinda, Ca. were startled by a loud voice blaring from their living room. “There are ballistic missiles headed to three American cities and President Trump has been moved to a secure facility.” Upon hearing this they grabbed and comforted their son and immediately tried to find some media confirmation.
Martin was having a radio interview with David Webb of XM Sirius and Fox Nation. The rather embarrassing moment came during a conversation about experience being more important than race in determining whether someone is qualified for a job. Analyst Areva Martin from CNN Accuses Host of Fox Nation of “White Privilege”-Only He is Black
Jim Acosta from CNN was mocked across social media Thursday after he posted a video while he was walking along the steel border wall in McAllen, Texas. He had flown in just a day before President Trump’s visit to the area to show that Trump was wrong about the border crisis. He said in his video tweet;” I found some steel slats down on the border, but I don’t see anything resembling a national emergency situation.”
He has a plan to find the funding for the border wall once and for all, Leave it to Chuck. Norris’s plan is aligned with a previous proposal made by Texas Senator, Ted Cruz. Their plan is to use the assets of Joaquin Guzman, Mexico’s famous drug lord better known as El Chapo. It is estimated that his net worth is upwards of $14,000 billion. This is more than enough to fund the building of the wall along the country’s southern border.
Socialist ideas that were always only on the fringes of the Democratic party seem to have now become mainstream ideas. There are now a growing number of Democrats that openly call themselves “Democratic Socialists”. The term was made popular in 2016 when Bernie Sanders ran for President. In a stunning Gallup Poll last summer, polls showed that most Democrats view socialism more favorably than they do capitalism.
