  • India Might Finally Terminate Their Stealth Fighter Program With Russia

    The Drive ^ | OCTOBER 20, 2017 | TYLER ROGOWAY
    A new report by Defense News states that India is extremely unhappy with Russia's supposed 5th generation fighter—better known as the T-50, or by its new production name the Su-57—that will act as the base for the sputtering FGFA cooperative fighter program between the two countries. The news comes after years of squabbling over the program, usually characterized by credible reports of the Indian Air Force's dismay with the qualities of the Russian aircraft. Now it seems as if the Indians want out of the program—which aimed for at least a 108 airframe production run—once and for all. Such a...
  • China on course to overtake US as dominant global superpower.(BARF Alert)

    <p>WHAT’S the most powerful country in the world? There’s a good case to be made that it’s China. There are many kinds of power – diplomatic, cultural, military and economic. So an easier question to ask is: What’s the world’s largest economy? Almost certainly China. Many might protest. After all, the US still produces the most when measured at market exchange rates. But this comparison is misleading, because things cost different amounts in different countries. Gross domestic product (GDP) is supposed to measure the amount of real stuff – cars, phones, financial services, back massages, etc – that a country produces. If the same phone costs $400 in the US but only $200 in China, China’s GDP is getting undercounted by 50pc when we measure at market exchange rates. In general, less developed countries have lower prices, which means their GDP gets systematically undercounted.</p>

    CHINA’S leader has laid out his ambitious plans for a superpower in a three-hour speech with huge implications for Australia. BEIJING has outlined plans to become the world’s biggest superpower within the next 30 years. Opening a five-yearly national congress, Chinese President Xi Jinping set out his time frame for the country to become a “global leader” with international influence. In his 3 ½ hour speech, Mr Xi urged a reinvigorated Communist Party to take a stronger role in society and economic development to better address the nation’s “grim” challenges. Speaking in the massive Great Hall of the People near...

These party members have since been arrested or jailed in a wide-reaching corruption crackdown launched by Mr Xi. Some observers have said the crackdown was used to conduct a political purge of Mr Xi's opponents.

    8-tonne Tiangong-1 not expected to pose threat when it re-enters Earth’s atmosphere between now and AprilA defunct, yacht-sized Chinese space lab is expected to fall out of orbit and crash to Earth in the coming months. China launched the eight-tonne Tiangong-1 satellite in 2011. Tiangong means "Heavenly Palace" in Chinese. The satellite, which is 12 metres long and 3.3 metres in diameter, was designed to test technology for a future space station. The Chinese space program used it for a series of spacecraft docking tests and visits from astronauts. The space lab broke down and stopped functioning in March 2016....
  • North Korea Is A Chinese Puppet

    A lot has been said this year about North Korea and their highly eccentric leader. In the western world, government officials and mainstream media talking heads portray Kim Jong-un as a maniac who is one snap decision away from starting a nuclear war. However, the official narrative leaves out a few crucial details. Kim Jong-un is described as things like “crazy” or “unstable.” This creates the illusion that he is unstable enough to put his country in harm’s way with an unprovoked attack on the US. Kim is not as crazy as the media makes him appear, however. He learned...

On the internet, government bureaus peppered social media with their favourite phrases from Xi's speech, while photos circulated of children watching Wednesday's congress in classrooms.

    Chinese President Xi Jinping opened a critical Communist Party Congress on Wednesday with a pledge to build a “modern socialist country” that will never copy the political systems of others and will remain open to the world. […] “Through a long period of hard work, socialism with Chinese characteristics has entered a new era. This is a new historical direction in our country’s development,” Xi said in a speech carried live across the nation on state television. China will relax market access for foreign investment and expand access to its services sector, as well as deepen market-oriented reform of its...

    YouTube has suspended the video account of popular Chinese dissident Guo Wengui amid a mounting pressure from the Beijing government to silence one of its critics. According to a person familiar with the action, YouTube issued what the company calls a "strike" against Guo, who since the beginning of the year has created an online sensation by posting lengthy videos in which he reveals details of corruption by senior Chinese officials. The suspension involves a 90-day block on any new live-stream postings of videos and was the result of a complaint made against a recent Guo video for alleged harassment....

    North Korea--after 30 years of rewarding every tantrum and mis-behavior by the Norks, what has been achieved? Basically we gave them Billions in gift money to finance their development of nukes & missiles. Thank heavens Trump is the first president who looks at the ROI and is stopping them playing us for fools. China--Needs us more than we need them. That $500,000,000,000 trade deficit EVERY YEAR has basically built China into a military & economic power. If we stop trading with China, their economy will suffer 100 times more than US economy. Actually we gain big time in the long...

    Alibaba executive vice chairman Joseph Tsai said Tuesday he expects to boost US jobs by expanding the Chinese firm's e-commerce platform -- not by hiring American workers. Tsai, speaking at a California tech conference, made the comments to follow up on a headline-grabbing pledge earlier this year by Alibaba founder Jack Ma and US President Donald Trump that the Chinese internet firm would create one million US jobs. The pledge by Ma was seen at the time as more of a public relations move than a promise to hire in the US. When asked what Alibaba was doing to deliver...

A spokesperson at the UMC Quick Care, which has eight locations throughout the Las Vegas area, told...

By David Trayner / Published 16th October 2017 The Communist superpower is building a six-lane highway in a sparsely populated area of its cold and windy north east. The massive new motorway snakes across an area where very few of the local peasants have a car and there is little traffic or trade. It’s destination? The North Korean border. Experts believe there can only be one explanation for the so-called G1112 Ji'an–Shuangliao Expressway: getting...

Excellent show. I have not watched Fox News for about a year. I was overseas. I had never (I believe, never) seen any show so honest about how high-tech is selling out to China. WELL DONE. A very interesting show. More than interesting. Well done Fox.

Tomorrow’s Hudson Institute event with Guo Wengui was postponed. It is not clear whether the postponement was because of what is believed to be a cyber attack, but Guo Wengui will speak at the Hudson Institute, BBG Watch was told. Hudson...

    If you were asked to rate the readiness levels of the U.S. military, what would you say? For this exercise, assume you have a scale with five choices: very weak, weak, marginal, strong and very strong. Think about each branch of the military. Where would it fall? Perhaps you're thinking, "I'm not an expert, so I can't say for sure." So let me refer you to the latest report from The Heritage Foundation's Center for National Defense. The authors are, in fact, experts -- and their conclusions are sobering. I'm referring to the 2018 Index of U.S. Military Strength. The...
