US Navy says China´s military
buildup won´t stop patrols

Associated Press, by Jim Gomez

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 2/17/2018 11:16:21 PM

Aboard USS Carl Vinson, Philippines - U.S. forces are undeterred by China´s military buildup on man-made islands in the South China Sea and will continue patrolling the strategic, disputed waters wherever "international law allows us," said a Navy officer aboard a mammoth U.S. aircraft carrier brimming with F-18 fighter jets. Lt. Cmdr. Tim Hawkins told The Associated Press on board the USS Carl Vinson that the Navy has carried out routine patrols at sea and in the air in the region for 70 years to promote security and guarantee the unimpeded flow of trade that´s crucial for Asian and U.S. economies.

President Trump continues to play chess with the Chinese in the South China Seas because of 0bama´s treachery not to stop them from expanding their military bases illegally there.

Leak Investigations, Journalists,
and Double Standards
National Review, by Andrew C. McCarthy    Original Article

It is an interesting contrast. The media are in a lather over the Justice Department’s grand-jury investigation of contacts between several reporters and a government source — the former Senate Intelligence Committee security director who has been indicted for lying to investigators about his leaks to the press. The same media are in a lather over the refusal of the president of the United States, at least thus far, to submit to questioning by the special counsel in the Russia investigation. The president is placing himself “above the law,” they contend, if he rebuffs prosecutors or defies a grand-jury subpoena.

Anthony Bourdain kept a brutal work schedule and was “absolutely exhausted” in the months leading up to his death, according to a report. “?His travel schedule was grueling and he often seemed quite beat-up from it, as anyone would be,” a source who worked closely with Bourdain in the past year told People. “He’d put everything into the shoots and then go back to his room to isolate.” The 61-year-old host of CNN’s “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown” was found Friday in his hotel room in France, by fellow celebrity chef and close friend Eric Ripert. Bourdain’s mother, Gladys, said Ripert told her her son had been in “a dark mood

The U.S. media industry waits on one man: Richard Leon. A senior judge at the U.S. District court for the District of Columbia, Leon will decide on Tuesday whether to approve AT&T’s $85 billion acquisition of Time Warner. AT&T’s argument for the merger is focused on the looming threat from tech companies that have used the internet to sidestep the traditional media distribution methods of movie studios and cable systems. Media companies are now trying to stockpile the most sought after content and develop their own internet-based distribution in hopes of attracting enough subscribers to compete with globally established

Will Gompertz reviews Bill

There is a long and noble history of two individuals coming together to create a memorable double act. Braque and Picasso, Lennon and McCartney, Dolce and Gabbana, Morecambe and Wise and French and Saunders spring to mind. There have also been less successful, rather odd couplings. I´m thinking Bing Crosby and David Bowie, Sam Fox and Mick Fleetwood, and now - 513 pages later - Bill Clinton and James Patterson. Their co-authored book The President is Missing is not quite as bad as Sam and Mick´s hosting of the 1989 Brit awards, but it is not far off. It is, let us say, not the most thrilling thriller.

The revelation that federal prosecutors seized years’ worth of email and phone records from a New York Times reporter drew criticism on Friday from news organizations and press rights groups, which expressed outrage at the first known instance of the Trump administration’s pursuing the private communications of a journalist. The Committee to Protect Journalists called the move “a fundamental threat to press freedom.” The Times, in its own statement, called the seizure “an outrageous overreach” and raised concerns about a chilling effect on journalists’ ability to report on the government. The records were seized from Ali Watkins,

California investigators have determined that equipment owned by PG&E Corp. caused some of the most devastating wildfires that tore through Northern California in October. Shares slid in after-markets trading. PG&E equipment ignited some of the largest and deadliest of the so-called Wine Country blazes, including the Redwood fire that killed nine; Atlas Fire that burned 51,624 acres and claimed the lives of six; and Nuns fire that killed at least two, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said in a statement.

Washington - The United States has pulled two more of its workers out of Cuba and are testing them for possible brain injury, three U.S. officials told The Associated Press on Friday, amid concerns they may have been affected by the mysterious health incidents harming U.S. diplomats in Cuba and China. The two individuals are considered "potentially new cases" but have not yet been "medically confirmed," a State Department official said. Two other officials said the individuals have been brought for testing to the University of Pennsylvania, where doctors have been evaluating, treating and studying Americans affected

San Francisco - Walk down the street on garbage day in many towns, and evidence of our love affair with online shopping is plain to see. Recycling bins overflow with boxes from Amazon, eBay, Walmart and others. All those folded and flattened corrugated cardboard boxes are a testament to Americans´ diligent recycling efforts — to a degree. A USA TODAY analysis of several industry studies on cardboard use and recycling paint a different picture.Americans are sending more corrugated cardboard to the landfill than to recycling plants compared to past years. Online sales have surged in the past five years, and cardboard

London - KFC says it’s cooking up a new, healthier recipe, one that will be missing the restaurant chain’s most famous ingredient: chicken. The company famous for its “finger lickin’ ” Southern fried chicken announced this week that it was testing chicken-like “vegetarian options” in Britain with its signature blend of herbs and spices. “Development of the recipe is still in its very early stages, and so the options we’re exploring in our kitchen are still top secret,” a spokesman for KFC said in a statement. “Once we’ve perfected the recipe, we aim to test with customers this year, and if all goes well, we hope to launch a new

(Video) - If Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un make peace and agree to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula in their Singapore summit, the benefits would be felt across the region, not least in China, or so conventional wisdom has it. Beijing would presumably see the threat of war in a bordering country almost disappear, trade sanctions lifted and a longtime ally in Pyongyang enter a new era of stability. Not so fast, Asia analysts say. Beware the law of unintended consequences. "Stability on the (Korean) Peninsula might mean the US is freer to pursue strategic competition with China than it is now," said Corey Wallace, an Asian

(Video) - President Donald Trump says he wants to meet with NFL players and athletes who kneel during the National Anthem so they can recommend people they think should be pardoned because they were treated unfairly by the justice system. "I´m going to ask them to recommend to me people who were unfairly treated," Trump said at the White House Friday. The President said during the wide-ranging gaggle that he would consider pardoning or commuting the sentences of those recommended. He also floated a pardon for posthumous boxing great Muhammad Ali.

The Miss America Organization announced this week that it will no longer judge women on their “outward physical appearance.” To that end, the swimsuit competition is gone. “We are no longer a pageant,” Gretchen Carlson, the group’s head, explained. “Miss America will represent a new generation of female leaders focused on scholarship, social impact, talent and empowerment.” Before I go on, let me confess my shameful secret: I like looking at really beautiful women, including when they wear bikinis. It feels so good to finally say that out loud for all to hear. Still, I never liked beauty pageants very much. I find the

FRENCH president Emmanuel Macron has threatened Donald Trump that the G7 wouldn’t “mind being six” and “no president is forever” as he slammed the US leader for steel tariffs. Speaking on Thursday, Mr Macron was asked whether Trump “didn’t care” about being isolated from other world leaders. Standing alongside Canadian president Justin Trudeau, Mr Macron said: "The six countries of the G7 without the United States, are a bigger market taken together than the American market. "Maybe the American president doesn´t care about being isolated today, but we don´t mind being six if needs be.” Leaders are gathering in Canada for their weekend’s

The 68-year-old’s incisive takes on politics of the day have been missing from Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” for nearly a year as he battled an abdominal tumor and subsequent complications, but colleagues and viewers alike had held out hope that he would return to the evening show he helped establish as must-viewing.

When does a feud become a separation? A separation a divorce? When do arguments, sharp-tongued put-downs and perceived betrayal among allies become the collapse of the Western-dominated order that has ruled the world, under U.S. leadership, for the past seven decades? As each day brings a new series of punches and counterpunches between President Trump and longtime U.S. partners, the question appears to be moving beyond the realm of the academic. The most recent episode began with Friday’s Group of Seven summit in Quebec, the annual chat-fest with the United States and the world’s other self-described economic

(Video)- The culinary world shifted when news that rock-star chef and author Anthony Bourdain died of an apparent suicide was confirmed by CNN on Friday. Bourdain defied the boundaries of his job description, transcending barriers of disparate cultures and, perhaps among his greatest feats, challenged the status quo he could have so easily chosen to thrive in. And aside from what he contributed to the world (taking us on adventures around the globe and giving us all a front-row seat to experience the gritty underbelly of New York City's restaurant industry through his cult-classic book Kitchen Confidential), that's why we

Democrats don’t know what to do about former President Bill Clinton. On one hand they love and admire him; on the other they wish he’d go away. “What I hear the most is, ‘I wish the Clintons would go away for this cycle,’” said a female House Democrat who claims to have a good pulse on the caucus. “I was sitting in the cloak room yesterday, and one of the Black Caucus members said, ‘Can’t she get the message, she needs to go away?’ So it’s both of them.” The former president returned to the spotlight this week for his book tour
