China’s commerce ministry says it will take “all necessary measures” in response to new U.S. restrictions on Chinese tech giant Huawei’s ability to use American technology, calling the measures an abuse of state power and a violation of market principles. An unidentified spokesperson quoted Sunday in a statement on the ministry’s website said the regulations also threatened the security of the “global industrial and supply chain.” “The U.S. uses state power, under the so-called excuse of national security, and abuses export control measures to continuously oppress and contain specific enterprises of other countries,” the statement said.

Why is it that other countries continue to try and pick a fight with the USA. Two world wars and Europe I don't think learned a thing. Communism however makes Hitler's ambitions look light. Mao and now Chi are determined to institute their business model. We shall see.

The Taiwan deal Trump made was a punch in the stomach to China. The press is oddly silent about that fact.

The ChiComs are worried about security of the “global industrial and supply chain.” LOL!!! They sure as hell SHOULD BE! The global industrial and supply chain is moving away from them. Old army saying my Dad was fond of: "Never 'she it' in your own mess kit"! Which is exactly what the ChiComs did with their Covid-19 cluster***k.

A judge in rural Oregon on Monday tossed out statewide coronavirus restrictions imposed by Democratic Gov. Kate Brown, saying she didn’t seek the Legislature's approval to extend the stay-at-home orders beyond a 28-day limit. Baker County Circuit Judge Matthew Shirtcliff issued his opinion in response to a lawsuit filed earlier this month by 10 churches around Oregon that argued the state's social-distancing directives were unconstitutional. Brown filed paperwork within hours seeking an emergency review by the Oregon Supreme Court and a hold on the ruling until the high court could take it up. Her attorneys had asked the judge to stay his ruling until that time, but he declined.

The business arm of China’s most prestigious university met its creditors on April 30, and the outcome has shaken investors’ faith in widely used contracts for Chinese offshore bonds. The bankrupt Peking University Founder Group used a short cut known as a keepwell deed to borrow US dollars from foreign investors. Now, its state-appointed restructuring administrator has thrown doubt on the enforceability of these contracts by classifying them as pending recognition. This decision impacts bondholders of about 16 per cent, or US$96 billion, of outstanding offshore bonds issued by Chinese companies, according to Redd, a market data provider.

The Chinese government may enforce several "countermeasures" against U.S. companies—including Apple—in retaliation for the Trump administration's plans to crack down on shipments of semiconductors to Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei from chipmakers worldwide. According to analysts cited in the state-run Global Times, such retaliatory measures from China towards large American companies such as Apple, Cisco and Qualcomm could be akin to a "nuke bomb." "China will launch rounds of endless investigations on those firms, just like swords hanging over their head. It will dampen investors' confidence and squeeze their income in the Chinese market,"

Africa’s largest country and biggest economy, Nigeria, has become the first country in the region to speak out against China for the “mal-treatment, discrimination, illegal detentions, forceful evictions and xenophobic attacks” that its people faced in China during Covid-19. Responding strongly to the ill-treatment meted out to its citizens, the African country has now asked its law ministry to help its citizens file cases in the international court against the ill-treatment they faced in China. Going a step further, Nigeria has also cracked down on thousands of Chinese immigrants who were legally or illegally staying in the country and is sending them back to China.

Gov. Gavin Newsom is proposing to significantly shrink the footprint of California's prison system, partly because of massive budget cuts prompted by the pandemic but also because of philosophy. The revised budget he sent to state lawmakers this week envisions closing two state prisons in the coming years; cutting nearly one in five of the 43 inmate firefighter camps; and eventually closing all three state-run juvenile prisons. He's also seeking unspecified increases to sentencing credits that allow inmates to leave prison more quickly. And he proposes to shorten parole to a maximum of two years, down from five years for felonies, and let ex-felons earn their way off supervision

US officials are working with some of the world's leading chipmakers in an effort to expand semiconductor manufacturing capability in the United States, a move intended to reduce the industry's reliance on producers in East Asia for those crucial electronics components. That would be a major shift for an industry that relies heavily on foreign production, largely from Taiwan, South Korea and China. And that transition may already be underway — semiconductor fabrication giant Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company will soon announce plans to build an advanced chipmaking facility in Arizona to help quell US officials' concern(snip).

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., TSMC, is expected to announce plans for a chip facility in Arizona, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal. The report indicates that the plant is likely to cost billions of dollars and could be producing chips by the end of 2023. TSMC is the world's largest contract manufacturer of silicon chips, the report states, with large clients, including Apple. An announcement on the facility could come as early as Friday, according to the report. It is not clear how many jobs such a plant would bring or where the chip plant will be located in the state.

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday revived a lawsuit from the Maryland and Washington, D.C. attorneys general that accuses President Trump of violating the Constitution’s Foreign and Domestic Emoluments Clauses by benefiting from use of the Trump International Hotel by foreign and U.S. officials. The case previously had been ordered dismissed by a Fourth Circuit panel. But the full roster of judges reheard the case and, in a 9-6 decision, determined Trump cannot have the court overrule a lower court’s decision to deny him certification to appeal before trial.

World Trade Organization (WTO) Director-General Roberto Azevedo said on Thursday that he will step down from his position effective August 31 after seven years at the helm of the global trade body. Azevedo, a 62-year-old Brazilian career diplomat, stepped down more than a year before his second term as WTO head was due to end. His departure comes at a difficult time for the WTO, which is charged with setting international rules for trade between member states. In December, the US effectively paralyzed the WTO's ability to settle disputes by blocking the appointment of judges to its appellate body. US President Donald Trump has regularly criticized the world trade body

Former President Barack Obama on Saturday criticized President Donald Trump in all but name as he gave a televised commencement address for high school seniors. Obama's message to graduating high school students came at the end of an hourlong television special. Obama panned 'so-called grown-ups, including some with fancy titles and important jobs' who do 'what feels good, what's convenient, what's easy.' 'That's how little kids think,' he added, 'which is why things are so screwed up.' The 44th President did not mention Trump by name, but there was no mistaking who he meant.

The federal government has already sent a one-time check of up to $1,200 to millions of American families, but according to Mark Cuban, the stimulus is not enough to offset the economic pain of the coronavirus pandemic. The billionaire entrepreneur proposed the government issue $1,000 checks to every American household every two weeks for the next two months, with the caveat that the money must be spent within 10 days of receipt or it expires. It would cost about $500 billion, Cuban estimated. (Snip) "It's time to face the fact that PPP didn't work. Great plan, difficult execution. No one's fault.

After Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Michael battered Florida in successive years, in 2017 and 2018, the federal government sent $7 billion to aid the recoveries. We are all Americans, and people of Florida were innocent victims who needed our help. No one argued it. But that patriotic reflex is missing now, in New Jersey’s hour of need. Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky is resisting what he calls a “blue state bailout.” And GOP Sen.

An article in Nowhere Magazine several years ago explored the ways ancient cultures dispatched the elderly, a practice known as senicide. Author Justin Nobel recounted several gruesome rites that made the Inuit habit of putting Granny on an Arctic ice floe seem humane. At one point, Nobel mentioned that his own grandparents had moved “to a fancy nursing home in the suburbs of New York City.” That made me shudder. If they are honest, historians judging the American experience during the coronavirus pandemic will excoriate our barbaric failure to protect the elderly.
