1………….> At The Border: National Guard
Sending the National Guard troops was was caused by Trump’s “frustration” of not getting the required $20 billion to $30 billion funding estimated to build a border wall, now as Mexico has thus far refused to pay the bill, and Ryan, McConnell, Alligators & Co have refused to include it in the budget.
The president has proposed taking money from the military’s budget for the wall, but DHS Chief Nielsen appeared to play down that proposal off the table by
saying the military might be asked to build walls only on the small sections of military land abutting the border.
2…………> The Skripal Mystery: Who & How?
With the air of secrecy and mystery surrounding the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, and the refusal of UK PM Ayatolin May to provide a sample of the Novichok nerve agent, police, media and almost everyone else has speculated how the attack was actually carried out.
Liste below are not so “usual suspects” of tools and evil schemes that made this event happen:
Secret Bank Account
Flowers at Graveyard
Parcel Through the Post
Front Door Handle
After reading the spy novels evil tools designs above, the main question remains: Why should Putin get involved in dangerous, amateurish and completely idiotic attack in the middle of London, two weeks before a pivotal election that gave him yet another six years in office, just to spray a deadly nerve agent at a retired and worthless spy who was imprisoned for years in Russia, and released without being executed or buried alive, as the usual GRU practice has been for decades?
3………….> Back Home: Col.Edgar Davis
America never forgets its heroes, as the remains of Col. Edgar F. Davis, an Air Force officer lost for almost 50 years after he was shot down over Laos finally came back home to North Carolina, greeted by his three children and a mile-long procession of roaring, flag-waving motorcycles.
Col. Edgar F. Davis was the navigator of an RF-4C Phantom fighter-bomber aircraft shot down during a night photo-reconnaissance mission over Laos in September 1968. His remains were identified in late December.
An Air Force color guard carried his flag-draped coffin from an American Airlines flight arriving at Raleigh-Durham International Airport from Dallas to a waiting hearse.
4…………> Ready To Strike: China
“We are not taking any options off the table. We have noticed that many U.S. officials have hinted that the two sides are in talks, but that is not the real case,” Gao Feng, a spokesperson with the Ministry of Commerce, said at a press briefing Friday.
China is fully prepared and will not hesitate to strike back fiercely if the United States unveils the list of 100-billion-U.S. dollar Chinese products subject to additional tariff hikes, Mr. Feng reiterated.
“It is a battle between unilateralism and multilateralism, and between protectionism and free trade as well,” Gao said.
If Obama’s multilateralism and so-called “free trade” are threatened, the economic globalization process will be disrupted, and the global economic recovery will be severely imperiled.
5…………> FB Outrage: Zukerberg’s Gestapo
If you thought that just a few hundreds of FB users had their personal data pirated out, think again: it’s not only the US: 310,000 Facebook users in Germany also had their data combed and mined about without their knowledge — even though they weren’t directly targeted.
German politicians are calling for “public beheadings” so to say to stop the arrogance of the Silicon Valley Barrons, after Facebook reported that data from 50 million users were harvested and misused by analysis firm Cambridge Analytica, and now was forced to revise that number up to 87 million users — 2.7 million of which are from EU countries.
The tastes, preferences and political leanings were used in the 2016 United States presidential election campaign.
“Facebook doesn’t know borders,” Cologne-based social media expert Hendrik Unger told DW. “It’s a global network.”
