Phill... at last we agree.

 

It is a money spinner.

 

Trumps tweets have put the two Chinas on a war footing. I wondered why?.

 

I woke up this morning to see a report about the SCS. The report was issued by an American think tank. A non-partisan think tank. I wonder. Where do they get their money to pay for their 220 staff. And how can they pay for their photos from space?

 

I found the company they pay for their space photos. It's all legit.

 

But where do they get their money?

 

Goes back to a think tank called CSIS.

 

"Center for Strategic and International Studies"

 

Check out who their sponsors are:

Oh.

 

Left wing, right wing... whatever. I don't care

 

I don't care about the South China Sea. I don't care if China has guns there to fight over the last half dozen fish.

 

But what I do care about is news networks not telling the truth. These photos of the "Chinese Guns" were everywhere on western news today.

 

I can't see guns in the photos. There most likely are guns there. But follow the source of the news, as I did. Treat every news article with the same suspicion as a CFTU post.

 

So yup.

 

Trump tweets about Taiwan and the SCS. He appoints the CEO of Exxon to be the man. Two days later photos "emerge" of guns in the SCS. Photos from a think tank.

 

A think tank that exxon pays for.

 

You are spot on Phill.

No, they aren't  ....

 

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-12-16/trump-doubles-down-are-we-talki...

 

With Obama doubling down late Thursday on accusations of a Putin-orchestrated Russian hack, and going as far as vowing retaliation against the Russia for "its meddling in the US presidential election", telling NPR that "there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our elections that we need to take action and we will at a time and place of our own choosing," moments ago Donald Trump likewise retaliated on his favorite medium, Twitter, when shortly after 6am, Trump suggested that the so-called "Russian hack" disclosed information that was in the public's interest, once again bringing up the age-old question: if the information is critical and serves the public, does it matter where it came from?

Specifically, Trump asked on Twitter if “the same cyberattack” U.S. intelligence agencies believe struck the Democratic National Committee and other groups was the one that revealed the DNC had been handicapping the presidential primary in favor of eventual nominee Hillary Clinton.

 

Are we talking about the same cyberattack where it was revealed that head of the DNC illegally gave Hillary the questions to the debate?

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 16, 2016

Meanwhile, as it escalated its allegations about a Kremlin-directed hack, the White House on Thursday claimed that Trump knew about Russian hacking of the campaign well before Election Day, and a spokesman for the Obama administration called on the president-elect to cooperate with a congressional probe into the matter.

Keep an eye on Obama's impromptu 2: 15pm press conference this afternoon, on the off chance the outgoing president decides to launch cyberwar shortly before leaving for his Hawaiian golf outing.

Putin Lashes Out At Obama: "Show Some Proof Or Shut Up"

Putin has had enough of the relentless barrage of US accusations that he, personally, "hacked the US presidential election" and on Friday his spokesman told reporters in Tokyo that "you need to either stop talking about it, or finally show some kind of proof. Otherwise it just looks very indecent."

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
