1…………> Back To The Future: ABBA
“I heard about Abba releasing new songs and I became instantly really excited to know what the songs were and how they’re going to sound. Will it have that 1970s sound or will it be up to date? It’s brilliant really because we love Abba’s music to death. I just hope they’re great songs, I hope they’re equivalent to Dancing Queen or Mamma Mia”, that is how Rod Stephen, founder of Abba tribute act Bjorn Again, described the new material as “a whole new beginning”.
Pop group Abba returned to the studio to record their first new music since the 1980s, with the Swedish quartet saying that the new material was an “unexpected consequence” of their recent decision to put together a “virtual reality” tour.
“We all four felt that, after some 35 years, it could be fun to join forces again and go into the studio,” the band said on Instagram.
“And it was like time stood still.”
2…………> Another Liberal “Hot Pants”: Brokaw
We live in historic times, when every week or so, a “Liberal Legend” will fall into the ever-expanding “sex-addicts” trashcan of Hollywood’s “Lover boys”, starting with “America’s dad” Mr. Bill Cosby who was recently sentenced to prison for raping a woman, followed by the “Couch Fiasco” of Mr. Harvey Weinstein, almost surpassed by NBC Matt Lauer who resigned due to abundant sex claims, and the list goes on and on, all along ignoring, or deliberately forgetting Antony “Hot pants” Weiner, the disgraced husband of Uma Abeding, and topping the “Top 100 List”, the incomparable “Lord Of The Women Abusers,” Bill “I did not have sex with that woman” Clinton.
Now “poker-faced” NBC anchor Tom Brokaw, a “Pillar of Liberal wisdom and Integrity” has joined the “Hot Pants” team after being accused by a war correspondent named Linda Vester that he groped her, twice tried to forcibly kiss her and made inappropriate overtures attempting to have an affair.
What is the matter with all those people, to have the energy to be a “superstar,” and at the same time trying to slide their long, “love” searching fingers around an innocent woman in a trek for more and more fun? Too much “oyster sauce” in the soup? It could be.
3…………> Chinese Spies: Huston
Shan Shi, 53, of Houston, and Gang Liu, 32, a Chinese national, were charged yesterday by superseding indictment with conspiracy to commit economic espionage for the benefit of CBM-Future New Material Science and Technology Co. Ltd. (CBMF), a Chinese company based in Taizhou. Both businessmen were previously indicted in June 2017 for conspiracy to commit theft of trade secrets.
According to court records, Shi and Liu conspired with others to commit economic espionage and steal trade secrets from a U.S. engineering firm that produces syntactic foam, a strong, lightweight material with commercial and military uses. Shan; Liu; Uka Kalu Uche, 36, of Spring, Texas; Samuel Abotar Ogoe, 75, of Missouri City, Texas; Kui Bo, 41, a Canadian citizen who had been residing in the Dallas area; and Hui Huang, 33, a Chinese national, were indicted in June 2017 on a charge of conspiracy to commit theft of trade secrets. An additional defendant pleaded guilty to the charge in December 2017. The superseding indictment includes that charge, adds the conspiracy to commit economic espionage count against Shi and Liu, and includes a federal money laundering conspiracy count against Shi. CBMF and CBMI have also been indicted on all three charges.

5…………> No Anti-Communist Farting: China
In a new push to cement the ever-expanding power of President Trump’s “very good friend”, China’s President, Chairman of the Military Commission and Supreme Commander of the PLA Mr.Xi, a man sharing a “good chemistry” with a pillar of capitalistic thinking and billionaire NY developer, China authorities have introduced a bill criminalizes defamation of revolutionary heroes.
In his immortal book “The Endless Beginning”, George Sorbane joked that the “1st Secretary of the Planetary Commission, Comrade Ibrahim Hon Shu Danielovich Brewster, a Chinese-born Muslim raised by his Jewish aunt and then adopted by a lesbian couple of Danielovich Brewster, will have his first act in office to fit all cows, horses and seniors citizens with fart suppressors, and school curriculum be reduced to shopping, hanging out and smoking pot. Anyone caught studying Algebra was to get 20 lashes in the rear”.
In 2013 this was a joke, but the path of enshrining Mr.Xi as the “New Mao” is not funny at all, in fact deeply troubling, even today as the “Fake News Media” is reluctantly mentioning the “hand-holding” by the two Koreas strong men, mulling if Trump, Un & Co should get a Novel prize, completely ignoring the fact that PLA is patrolling the South China Sea in force, threatening to go to war if the pirated atolls are attacked.
The “Heroes and Martyrs Protection Law” it is prohibiting misrepresentation, defamation, to profane or deny the deeds and spirits of heroes and martyrs, or to praise or beautify invasions,” all rooted in a Beijing court ruling ordering a historian to apologize for two essays written in 2013 that questioned if the story of the “Five Heroes of Langya Mountain” — Communist soldiers who jumped to their death from a mountain peak instead of surrendering to Japanese troops — really happened.
It sounds very much like George Sorbane’s story, but ain’t funny, ain’t it?
