Oh joy, just what the world needs, more politicians waving their dicks at each other and creating more drama. no

 

Looking on the brightside though, it's probably a great distraction from their domestic problems and I bet a lot of politicians and their friends/family make a killing on the stockmarkets.

... selling arms ... to Taiwanese ...

I'd say, that's the most important pitch.

Was reading whole weekend how Nancy will go ... and how she'll not go 'cause Mainland was upset-est and what not ... and the most interesting of all is POTUS distanced himself from her visit to Taiwan.

Zero reposted an article from Chinese Global Times with " ... shoot her down 'cause that's an invasion and all ...", scare tactic, buy Nancy went ahead ...

There're tonne of US striking groups sailing in SCS ...

Blondie_:

it is about keeping the plebs in a perpetual state of fear with their pissing contests, and focusing their attention away from the fact that they are nothing more than narcissitic parasites.

it is never good enough to 'leave well alone' and let people get on with their lives, which is what most people want.

 

everything is 'manufactued' to keep the mob in a state of stress and fear, becasue people who are afriad (of something) are easier to control and manipulate.

also, every 'distraction' - as you point out - diverts attention away from what is really going on.

For example, all the CO2 emission reduction BS will result in global hunger and more controlled populations.
Currenlty in Europe farmers are protesting as the arbitrary 'agreements' that governments have signed up to will eventually result in countries being unable to feed themselves and a reliance on 'soylent green'.

Brazilian farmers are rubbing their hands in anticipation of being able to sell tons more of beef (think reduction of forests) becuase the EU pulled a 'carbon emission reduction' figure out of their asses to force farms to close.

at no point was coherent evidence been presented on this, only the repetition of slogans.

recently it was proven that the data that has been used as the basis for Alzheimer's       policies for years has been faked.
What other policies have been based on faked data - especially when such data has been questioned, the challengers have been labeld and demonised.
When there are such obscene profits to be made (in all areas such as drugs and arms manufacturing , truth and honesty are out the window.

Zero's take on A. Jones and all ...

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2022-08-03/today-they-come-alex-jones-tomorrow-all-us

Today They Come For Alex Jones, Tomorrow For All of Us

 

Excerpt:

In a break from the Constitution, Alex Jones never got a jury trial to decide his guilt in this matter. Judges instead unilaterally issued a default judgment of guilt.

 

The 7th Amendment:

“In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved.”

The right to jury trial, as indicated, extends even further back in time than the founding of the nation to British common law. That’s how far fundamental rights have been eroded. Legally, we’re getting dragged back into the feudal era.

 

You'll have to study US Constitution to really understand and see all the wrinkles here ... Article in NZ Herald obfuscates illegality of A. Jones persecution.

Alex Jones story is a soap-opera-tic ... I have never read anything about except titles on A. Jones. Now, when you mention it, I went a bit deeper in and ... A.

Now, MSM and your NZ Herald went all along with the story how A. J. is bad and what not.

 Have you ever been ... summoned ... ... after Taiwan ...

 

China Summons US Ambassador Overnight, Says Washington "Must Pay The Price"teaser image

Foreign Ministry: "the US government should have restrained Pelosi's unscrupulous move and prevented her from going..."

 

It's the middle of the night local time, but China has announced the foreign ministry has summoned US Ambassador to China Nicholas Burns in order to "protest" Pelosi's landing in Taiwan, where she's due to meet with Tsai Ing-wen in the morning. This as PLA military drills surrounding the self-ruled island are reported to be ongoing, including 'live fire' exercises.

According to a readout in state-run Global Times, "China's Vice Foreign Minister Xie Feng summoned US Ambassador to China Nicholas Burns overnight to protest against US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan island late Tuesday night, stressing that the nature of Pelosi's visit is extremely vicious and the consequence is very grave.The Chinese side will not sit idly by."

Further GT writes, "Noting that the US government should have restrained Pelosi's unscrupulous move and prevented her from going against the historical trend but instead indulged her and colluded with her, which exacerbates the tension in the Taiwan Straits and seriously damages China-US ties, Xie said the US must pay the price for its own mistake. China will take necessary and resolute countermeasures and we mean what we say."

This "pay the price" warning will likely only be revealed in full, in terms of the options Beijing has in store for both Washington and Taipei, in the coming days or even weeks after Pelosi departs tomorrow.

Pelosi ‘was China’s dream’ – TrumpPelosi ‘was China’s dream’ – Trump             

 

Former President Donald Trump has condemned House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for visiting Taiwan, calling her trip “China’s dream.” Trump previously argued that Pelosi’s visit, which led to large-scale Chinese military drills and a severing of some diplomatic links with the US, would “cause great friction and hatred.”

“Crazy Nancy Pelosi, what the hell? What was she doing in Taiwan?” Trump said during a campaign-style rally in Wisconsin on Friday. “She was China’s dream. She gave them an excuse. They’ve been looking for that excuse, she gave it. Everything she touches turns to you-know-what.”

China withdraws promise not to send troops to Taiwan if it takes control of island

BEIJING, Aug 10 (Reuters) - China has withdrawn a promise not to send troops or administrators to Taiwan if it takes control of the island, an official document showed on Wednesday, signalling a decision by President Xi Jinping to grant less autonomy than previously offered.

China's white paper on its position on self-ruled Taiwan follows days of unprecedented Chinese military exercises near the island, which Beijing claims as its territory, in protest against U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit last week. read more

A fellow assistant teacher, a wonderful teacher, indeed, landed in Taiwan and she got back extatic. It was her first trip out of her town, right there, away and she got back full of dreams of better horizons, sea lands and out-reaching hopes. Asside from being a wonderful teacher, she is a wonderful human being. I am sure one day she will be back there.

Forward Question

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
