    EXCLUSIVE: Tech company which maintained Hillary's secret server was sued for 'illegally accessing' database and 'stealing White House military advisers' phone numbers' The Internet company used by Hillary Clinton to maintain her private server was sued for stealing dozens of phone lines including some which were used by the White House. Platte River Networks is said to have illegally accessed the master database for all US phone numbers. It also seized 390 lines in a move that created chaos across the US government. Among the phone numbers which the company took - which all suddenly stopped working - were lines...
  • Trump Protects National Security By Killing A Deal With China – Blocks Semiconductor Sale

    Oregon-based Lattice Semiconductor Corp hoped to sell itself to a Chinese-backed private equity fund called Canyon Bridge. That deal, it turns out, was never to be. After CFIUS (the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S.) gave a thumbs-down over security concerns, earlier this month, Lattice took its case to Donald Trump, arguing that the deal would create American jobs. They thought Trump would fall for it, but he upheld CFIUS’s recommendation. In blocking this deal, he sent a clear signal to Beijing that Washington will oppose takeover deals that involve technologies with military implications. Trump is basically protecting the...

    American Thinker ^ | 09/14/2017 | By Erik Khzmalyan
    It has become conventional wisdom to prematurely claim that the days of American presence in Asia Pacific are numbered, and that the region will eventually be incorporated into Sino-centric system where, of course, Beijing will be ascendant. Proponents of this argument are quick to point out the halting of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Obama’s Pivot to Asia, which failed to come to fruition. It is true that America’s relative influence is declining and its ability to have an impact on internal developments among the region’s actors will be limited. But is America ready to exit the region, and are...

    Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, the chairman of the review committee, said in a statement on Wednesday that its recommendation on the deal was “consistent with the administration’s commitment to take all actions necessary to protect national security.” “Cfius and the president assess that the transaction poses a risk to the national security of the United States that cannot be resolved through mitigation,” Mr. Mnuchin said.

    In a speech to the CLSA Investors’ Forum in Hong Kong on Tuesday, Breitbart Executive Chairman Steve Bannon stated that to avoid a trade war, China must cease its economic war on America. In a separate interview on Tuesday with David Martosko of The Daily Mail, Bannon mentioned President Trump’s planned visit to China in November to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping and attend economic summits. Bannon said Trump will seek common ground in a new trade relationship with China because “[t]here’s too much at stake to slip into a trade war right off the bat.” “I think...

    Ranking US lawmaker seeks sanctions on 12 Chinese banks over N. Korea WASHINGTON -- A ranking American lawmaker has asked the US government to sanction 12 large Chinese banks as part of efforts to cut off North Korea's access to the international financial system, an informed source said Wednesday. The measures, if implemented, would mark a significant increase in pressure on China to rein in North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs. They could also endanger US-China ties. The list, submitted by House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), includes the world's largest bank, Industrial and Commercial Bank...

    PUTTING IT IN PERSPECTIVE - Beijing's caution risks undermining its growing reputation as a global player. But seeming weakness is a price it appears willing to pay now, in the interests of a long-term leadership goal: to take over America's old mantle as the dominant power in Asia. PARIS AND BEIJING—Is China’s courage failing? Exasperated and embarrassed by North Korea’s nuclear and missile tests, Beijing is nonetheless shrinking from using all the influence it has to stop them. China reportedly refused to back US proposals for an oil embargo against Pyongyang, for example, forcing Washington to soften the UN Security...

    The Indian Army is in the early planning stages for a new light tank capable of traversing the rugged conditions of India’s mountainous northern borders. A directive from the Army setting requirements for the machine comes soon after China tested its own mountain tank in Tibet. India and China have long-running border disputes at Aksai Chin in India’s northwest and Arunachal Pradesh in the northeast. In June 2017, a standoff ensued at Doklam, near Bhutan, when Chinese troops with construction machinery moved into a disputed territory to extend a road. Indian troops arrived and both sides faced off, and both...
  • China thinks the US holds the key to resolving North Korea crisis

    09/11/2017 12:13:48 PM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 14 replies
    US President Donald Trump has regularly called on China to stop North Korea’s nuclear advancement, even saying in July it could “easily” end the crisis. In Beijing, however, leaders think the opposite. While the United States and China agree that the Korean peninsula should be rid of nuclear weapons, they differ on how best to achieve that. The sense of urgency is heightened in Washington, as the US suddenly finds itself potentially in range of Kim Jong-un’s nuclear weapons, whereas China and North Korea’s other neighbours have lived with that threat for years. Trump has said China should use its...

How many people might be affected is unclear, but consumer research firm GlobalWebIndex says a survey of Chinese web surfers this year found 14 percent use a VPN daily. …

    Last week, the Pakistan Air Force and the Chinese People’s Liberation Army-Air Force (PLAAF) began joint training exercises dubbed “Shaheen VI” in China. The exercises began on Thursday and will run until September 27. According to Xinhua, China’s state news agency, a spokesperson for the PLAAF noted that China had sent a wide range of aerial assets and troops, including Shenyang J-11 twin-engine multirole fighters, Xian JH-7 fighter-bombers, KJ-200 airborne warning and control system (AWACS) aircraft, and surface-to-air missile crews and radar operators.Xinhua added that Pakistan had sent an undisclosed number of JF-17 Thunder fighters and its own early warning...

    China is joining France and Britain in announcing plans to end sales of gasoline and diesel cars. China’s industry ministry is developing a timetable to end production and sale of traditional fuel cars and will promote development of electric technology, state media on Sunday cited a Cabinet official as saying. The reports gave no possible target date, but Beijing is stepping up pressure on automakers to accelerate development of electrics. China is the biggest auto market by number of vehicles sold, giving any policy changes outsize importance for the global industry. A deputy industry minister, Xin Guobin, said at an...

    How did India and China, nuclear-armed nations collectively home to 36 percent of the world’s people, go from conflict to camaraderie in less than a week? At the end of August, two months into the worst border standoff between the two countries in decades, there were whispers of war. But this week, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping joined Russia, South Africa and Brazil in declaring war on Pakistan-based terror groups. What just happened? Can it last? And should we trust it? For the moment, it appears Beijing’s aspirations to be a global leader in a...

    North Korea increases punishment for watching Chinese media The North Korean authorities have recently strengthened crackdowns and increased punishment for residents caught in possession of Chinese movies or TV series, which can now result in five years of re-education labor. The possession of Chinese media has traditionally been less serious than content from South Korea or the US. According to multiple Daily NK sources in North Korea, Group 109, the squad in charge of controlling external media, was recently dispatched nationwide from Pyongyang, including to mountainous areas, randomly searching houses and immediately arresting those found to be in possession of...

The changes could be down to environmental factors and unrelated to the nuclear test, but the trend was “worthy of attention”,...

    It can be all too easy to see North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, as a nuclear-armed nuisance desperate for attention. But as is often the case with the belligerent young man, analysts say, there is a perverse logic to his carefully timed provocations aimed at China and the United States, including this week’s nuclear test – the country’s sixth, and by far its most powerful. In October, at the Chinese Communist Party’s once-every-five-years leadership conference, President Xi Jinping is likely to further consolidate his power. In the run-up, however, projecting an aura of stability is key. “North Korea knows that...

    Radiation leak at North Korean nuclear test site 'inevitable', says Chinese expert By Neil Connor, beijing 5 SEPTEMBER 2017 A radiation leak at the site of North Korea’s massive bomb test is “inevitable”, a Chinese nuclear weapons expert warned, after authorities in China reported that the mountain where the explosion took place had collapsed. China’s Earthquake Network Centre said a second 4.6 magnitude ‘earthquake tremor’ happened eight minutes after Sunday’s initial explosion, which measured 6.3 magnitude. Authorities in China said the tremor could be a result of a “cave in”, a potentially devastating collapse of the mountain at the Punggye-ri...

    China is expected shortly to launch a crude oil futures contract priced in yuan and convertible into gold in what analysts say could be a game-changer for the industry. The contract could become the most important Asia-based crude oil benchmark, given that China is the world's biggest oil importer. Crude oil is usually priced in relation to Brent or West Texas Intermediate futures, both denominated in U.S. dollars. China's move will allow exporters such as Russia and Iran to circumvent U.S. sanctions by trading in yuan. To further entice trade, China says the yuan will be fully convertible into gold...
