1…………> New Guinea: 7.5 Shaker

Powerful aftershocks continue to rock Papua New Guinea after a magnitude-7.5 earthquake struck the country’s southern highlands, forcing ExxonMobile to shut its nearby gas conditioning plant due to fears of damage to the structure.

The quake hit in the early hours of this morning at a relatively shallow depth of 25 miles, with the epicenter was about 65 miles south-west of Mendi, the capital of Southern Highlands province, a town of more than 50,000 people.

2…………> Cult Of Personality: Mr.Xi Forever

China’s ruling Communist Party has proposed scrapping the ten-year term limit for the President, in a move almost certain to be written into the country’s constitution in March, a change that would allow President Xi Jinping to continue as head of state beyond 2023, and into “Communist Part Of Heaven” eternity.

Sydney academic Dr. Feng Chonygi says Mr. Xi has “much greater power than Vladimir Putin”, and certainly more than President Trump.


This would allow Mr.Xi to continue as both the head of state and Communist Party General Secretary beyond 2023, not forgetting his Chairmanship of the Central Military Commission, yet another title that does not have a term limit.

According to China’s state media, the Communist Party’s main leadership group — the Central Committee — proposed the amendment, along with writing Mr. Xi’s ideology into the country’s constitution. Can a Communist leader become a saint?

3…………> Elephant In China’s Store: Carl Vinson

Deep in the South China Sea the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, USS Carl Vinson, is sailing right through the red lines of the proposed South China Sea new sovereignty and dreams for world domination.

“It shows resolve, and gives decision space to our leaders,” the ship’s commanding officer, Captain Doug Verissimo, said.
“When they put a carrier strike group somewhere it helps to show that the United States is interested.
“We don’t have a lot of these, so when you put one in a certain area it has some influence.
“Of course it also gives our diplomats time and space to negotiate and make decisions, ultimately to try and prevent any type of armed conflict.”

The Carl Vinson, the flagship of a strike group from the US Third Fleet is shielded by a screen of distant guided missile cruisers and destroyers that form a protective “iron dome” around the aircraft carrier.


China has built airstrips and ports on reefs and shoals throughout the sea in defiance of a ruling from an international tribunal in the Hague.

“We want to keep laws and norms in place that we don’t change the map along the way, to avoid frictions,” Captain Verissimo said.

4…………> Turkcoin: National Cryptocurrency

Despite the condemnation of virtual currencies as un-Islamic because they cannot be audited and surveilled by Turkey’s Directorate of Religious Affairs, 
the country is contemplating its own national cryptocurrency called Turkcoin.

“The world is advancing toward a new digital system. Turkey should create its own digital system and currency before it’s too late,” a senior finance official warned.

5…………> Breaking The Law: Oakland Mayor

The mayor of Oakland Libby Schaaf issued a warning that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) could be conducting a raid in the area as soon as Sunday, a warning which she “learned from multiple credible sources” and intended “not to panic our residents but to protect them.”

Ms. Schaaf claimed she felt it was her “duty and moral obligation as Mayor to give those families fair warning when that threat appears imminent” as the feds detained at least four people during the weekend.

She joined other law enforcement officials in Northern California who would not cooperate with ICE, and noted state law “prohibits business owners from assisting ICE agents in immigration enforcement and bars federal agents from accessing employee-only areas.”

“It is no surprise that the bully in chief is continuing to try to intimidate our most vulnerable residents,” Schaaf said at the time. “We’re very clear that our values are to protect all of our residents regardless of where we come from. We want to protect families, not tear them apart.”

1…………> CIA Secrets: Ocean Floor Riches

The Glomar Explorer Legacy: Enter Howard Hughes and history as in the summer of 1974, a large and highly unusual ship departed from Long Beach in California, heading for the middle of the Pacific where its owners boasted it would herald a revolutionary new industry beneath the waves.

Equipped with a monstrous rig and drilling gear, the vessel was designed to reach down through the deep, dark waters to a source of incredible wealth lying on the ocean floor.

Now 50 years later, as robots have penetrated the depths and secrets of “blue water” in the middle of the oceans, we have an idea of the immense treasures available for mining as robotic subs dig minerals thousands of feet below the waves.   

Is this the new “Wild West” of 21th century? Don’t bet against it.

 

 

2…………> Death To Christians: IS

The Islamic State claimed responsibility for a deadly attack on churchgoers in Russia’s predominantly Muslim Dagestan region. At least five people were killed and four wounded when a gunman opened fire on people leaving a Sunday service at a Russian Orthodox church in Kizlyar.

3…………> Sushi vs Egg-Rolls: New Trade Block

Watch it “Silk Road” initiative, here comes US, Australia, India and Japan “Highway Road” West Atlantic pact to establish a regional trading infrastructure plan as an alternative to China’s “Belt and Road” project, and in fact the “Eurasian Block” alliance that had threatened US dollar dominance as world reserve currency and replacement with the IMF SDR yuan based alternative.

Chinese President Xi Jinping’s brainchild, the “Silk Road Economic Belt” and the 21st-century “Maritime Silk Road”, calling for the integration of the region through broadening trade and increasing cultural exchanges.

Historically, China’s Silk Road was an ancient network of trade routes that for centuries were indispensable to cultural interaction across Eurasia, connecting East and West.

4…………> UFO Over Oregon

An UFO object was first detected in the air above Northern California by radar stations in Oakland, moving “very fast at 37,000 feet,” then observed in broad daylight flying through the heavy traffic of the United States’ air corridors above the state of Oregon.


The object did not respond to radio calls, had no collision-avoidance transponders, clearly visible, and tracked by radar intermittently  moving at unusually high speeds.

 Was it the mysterious top secret US aircraft “Aurora” flying at MACH 5, dark and practically invisible to centimeter frequency radars?

 

 

5…………>Grab Trump’s Suitcase, The Suitcase: Chinese Attacker

“An individual, not part of the official delegation, attempted to prevent one of our protectees from entering a room. A US Secret Service agent quickly intervened and a short scuffle ensued. The individual complied with the agent’s directions and no further action was necessary,” a story of a confrontation that broke out between Chinese and US officials over the “nuclear football” — the briefcase containing US nuclear launch codes — during a visit to Beijing by US President Donald Trump last year, according to website Axios. 

Multiple sources confirmed an incident in which Chinese officials tried to block a military aide with the briefcase from following Mr Trump into the Great Hall of the People, despite the aide being required to stay close to the President at all times.
